Messy Christmas - who is the dragon?

Post by Fluen » 29 Jun 2017 01:21

I've just re-played Codo's Messy Christmas. And the dragon/mutant is intriguing me. It looks to be inspired by some cartoon or comic character, but who?

Do you recognize the character? I can't seem to find anything about it in the credits, and sadly Codo never answered the PM I sent her, when I played her level the first time.

The dragon uses two quotes as sounds. One is "What a world!" and the other is something that ends with "horrid". If you do know the character, the dragon is based on, you may be able to tell me, what the second quote is saying.

Thank you in advance.

Oh, and if you can tell me, what character/internet meme the green fish/hammerhead is based on, I will be very pleased.

Can't really help you with the dragon, but cybie from TRForge instantly knew what the green fish is based on: It's the "dopefish" from a game called "Commander Keen": http://image.dosgamesarchive.com/screenshots/keen41.png

She also said that the dragon might be from "My Little Pony" and indeed there are similar dragons, so maybe that was Codo's inspiration :-)

Wonderfull! Thank you Sylwia and Soul. So my assumption about a cartoon character wasn't completely off.

I still don't understand, what the dragon says, about what happened to his nice moustache: "I ??? them ??? horrid!" Is a native English speaker willing to put that sentence from Sylwia's link into written words?

In Sylwia's video he says: "I was just sitting here, minding my own business, when this tacky little cloud of purple smoke just ??? past me and tore half of my beloved mustache clean off. And now, I look simply horrid" :-)

For all this oblivious years, I thought he screams "I just simply love it".
But it was even funnier with fire blasted at Lara in the same moment.
