Hello fellow Pop Culture Enthusiasts! It’s time for another Tropes post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome trivia. Now, let’s begin!
Creepy Souvenir: This is a very common trope that’s used in many forms of media. It deals with a certain object, usually a body part, that shows the messed up things a character has done. Some examples include; The Medic’s macabre refrigerator from TF2. The psychotic Dr. Ludwig has various beating hearts, and the still living head of a Blu Spy. Next, there’s Mr. Zsasz from the Batman comics. This serial killer etches his body with knife marks to indicate how many lives he’s taken. Lastly, there’s The Predator from the series of the same name. This heavily skilled hunter collects the skulls of his victims.
Brutal Bonus Level: This is a trope that’s commonly used in video games. It deals with hidden levels that are known for their extreme difficulty. Some examples include; The True Arena from the various Kirby games. This is a boss rush gauntlet with few healing items. Each boss is significantly harder, and has a whole plethora of new attacks. Next, there’s Yoku Man’s stage from Mega Man Unlimited. This stage is heavily filled with those goddamn disappearing and reappearing blocks. It will drive you absolutely crazy. Lastly, there’s The Void from The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth +. This final stage has some of the hardest enemies in the entire game. Then, we get to the final boss, Delirium, and you better put your best skills to the test! He has the most health of any boss in the game, and can replicate each of their attack patterns to ridiculous effects.

Squashed Flat: An extremely popular trope that’s used in many forms of media, mainly cartoons. It occurs when a character gets flattened by a heavy object or machine. Some examples include; Judge Doom’s transformation in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. In this, the titular villain exposes his true form after getting flattened like a pancake. Lastly, we have the various squishing of Tom& Jerry. Always played for comedic effect, the two titular characters will always find themselves getting squished by various objects.
Happy April fools, everyone! I hope you all are doing well. Today, we will be looking at the “best” and “greatest” Yu-Gi-Oh cards ever printed. I hope you guys are ready to be blown away by these “incredible powerhouses”. Now, let’s duel! Uh…… How do you play this game again?
Lucky Punch: Type: Continuous Trap Card Appearance: Behemoth getting punched directly in his tail by Rescue Rabbit. Effect: Once per turn, when an opponent’s monster declares an attack: You can toss a coin 3 times. If the result is 3 heads, draw 3 cards, but if the result is 3 tails, destroy this card. If this face-up card on the field is destroyed: You lose 6000 Life Points.
This card is absolutely horrible! The amount of draw power you get out of it is barely worth it when the opposite effect can kill you immediately. Don’t run this one under any circumstance!
An Unfortunate Report Aka: I’m a freaking idiot that loves to be hit in the face. Type: Normal Trap Appearance: A dreary-looking desk with a stack of tattered papers. Effect: Your opponent conducts their next Battle Phase twice.
This card is probably one of the worst, if not the worst trap card ever created. Giving your opponent another chance to hit your face is like asking to lose to the match. I detest this card, and will never use it in a deck.
Hello fellow Jojo fans! It’s time for another Stand post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome characters. Now, strike a pose, and let’s begin!
C-Moon Stand User: Enrico Pucci First Appeared: Stone Ocean Chapter 140 (Part 6) Appearance: A fearsome-looking humanoid creature with a skeletal face, red eyes, white and green skin, and arrow shaped vestiges on the top of its head. Type: Long distance and evolved. Powers/Abilities: Gravity Shift: C-Moon can make Pucci the center of a reverse gravitational phenomenon. This spans an area of 3 kilometers and allows objects and people to be repelled from the user. C-Moon is unaffected by this, and cover move around the area freely. Anyone positioned above the user will fall upward.This also allows Pucci to be able to walk on any surface, vertical or otherwise. Time Acceleration: C-Moon can also manipulate time to increase or decrease. This doesn’t only affect people, but also inanimate objects. It only works with objects that touch the user or come into contact with him. Surface Inversion: This is probably C-Moon’s most dangerous ability. It allows the Stand to dramatically change the gravitational force acting upon an object through touch. Upon impact, the object will turn itself inside-out. This is incredibly powerful, as a blow to the chest would cause the heart to turn inside-out, causing death almost instantly. It can also cause small objects to be projected into his opponents.
C-Moon was one of the most dangerous Stands in Stone Ocean. Pucci’s incredible control of gravity nearly makes this Stand invincible. Gravity manipulation has always been one of my favorite powers, and Araki does wonders with it in this part.
Green Day Stand User: Cioccolata (Beaten to Death) First Appeared: Ch 553, Golden Wind Episode Appearance: A green, humanoid being with cylinders on its head. It has stripes all over its body, and slightly resembles a giant cactus. Personality: Unknown, but quite possibly extremely sadistic. Powers/Abilities: Mold Infestation: This incredibly potent ability allows Green Day to produce a mold which destroys the flesh of those it infects instantaneously. The Stand spreads the mold through the cylinders on its head, as well as its hands and shoulders. The mold grows when the infected individual lowers their current altitude. The only way to stop the infestation, is to increase your altitude. Dismemberment Control: A highly gross, but awesome ability allows Cioccolata to implant the mold to his various body parts. This allows the psychopath to reattach limbs if they ever were severed and plan out sneak attacks.
Green Day was an incredibly dangerous Stand that nearly wiped out an entire city in part 5. Its user, Cioccolata, is an incredibly fucked up character that loves to perform horrific surgery and make Snuff Films with his partner, Secco. The infectious quality of Green Day almost seems to play directly into Cioccolata’s warped and unhinged mind.
Hello fellow Pop Culture Enthusiasts! It’s time for another tropes post! Today, we will be going over some tropes that are commonly found in the Horror genre. Now, grab a snack, and let’s begin!
Malevolent Mutilation: A rather unsettling trope that’s used in many types of media, mainly body horror. It occurs when somebody takes body modification to the absolute extreme. It less looks like a fashion statement, and more like a horrifying mess. Some examples include; The horrific monsters in Amnesia: The Dark Descent. These creatures used to be human, until they were forcefully transformed into nightmares. Some have broken jawbones, while others have hook hands. Next, we have a real life horror known as foot binding. This insanely painful practice was used in China around the 10th century. It was seen as a sign of beauty, but the process was nearly vomit-inducing. Women would have their toes and the arcs of their feet forcefully broken in order to look more erotic to their husbands. Finally, we have Darth Maul from Star Wars. This vicious villain tattooed his entire face in black in order to intimidate his foes.
The horrific Grunts of Amnesia.
More Teeth Than the Osmond Family: A very common trope that’s used in multiple forms of media. It essentially is any character with a ridiculous amount of teeth. Some examples include; The Shinigami Ryuk from Death Note. This wickedly, (no pun intended), awesome Death God is already unsettling to look at. He also has a permanent slasher smile. Next, we have Mileena from Mortal Kombat. This rather voluptuous ninja is extremely beautiful. Unfortunately, her sexiness goes completely out of the window when you see her teeth! Pointy fangs doesn’t even begin to describe what’s going on there! Lastly, we have the main monsters in the Cult Horror Film, The Deadly Spawn. They have an astonishing amount of teeth, so much in fact, that their lips have them.

Hello fellow Pop Culture Enthusiasts! It’s time for another trope post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome knowledge. Now, let’s begin!
The Silent Bob: An extremely common trope used in all sorts of media. It deals with a character in a show, game, movie, etc that never speaks. They say every thing with their bodies, and facial expressions. Some examples include; Giorgio Manos from the video game Roundabout. She is the main character of the game, and never utters a single word. Despite this, everybody in the game understands what she means with her face and gestures. Next, we have the WWE Superstar, Brock Lesnar. The ham-faced wrestler is incredibly intimating, however he never speaks, and for good reason. His voice is very squeaky, so his manager, Paul Heyman speaks for him. Lastly, we have the slasher, Jason Vorhees. He never speaks in any of his films, but it doesn’t stop him from racking up a huge body count.
Achievements in Ignorance: A highly comedic trope that’s used in comedic forms of medias. It occurs when somebody manages to complete a task using pure ignorance. Some examples include; Franklin Richards’ powers from The Fantastic Four. Despite being a young boy, he’s capable of bending the very fabric of our reality, and he doesn’t know how powerful he really is. Next, there’s Naruto. He’s not the smartest character, but manages to complete a written test where he’s supposed to cheat, by doing nothing. Lastly, there’s Calvin’s rare ability to answer math problems correctly when day dreaming.
