More Fascinating Mythical Creatures From Around The World

Hello fellow mythology lovers! It’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating mythical creatures. I hope you guys are ready for some truly insane creations. Now, let’s begin!

  • Bubak: The Bubak is a fearsome creature of Czech mythology. It’s depicted as a scarecrow with a skeletal body and unsettling face. It essentially is the Bogeyman of Czechoslovakia. The Bubak has a cry that sounds like an innocent baby, and it uses this to lure in victims. It is said that it travels between the world of the dead and living in a cart pulled by black cats.

It can also fire its quills like arrows, and is nearly invincible. Its only supposed weak point is its tail and parts of its neck.

Even More TV Tropes

Hello fellow media lovers! It’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating tropes. Now, let’s begin!

  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: This is an extremely popular trope that’s used in numerous forms of media. The trope occurs when a chef or wannabe chef tries to combine ingredients that should NEVER go together. The result usually involves the consumer gagging, vomiting, or fainting. Some examples of this include; Soma’s devious combination of squid tentacles and peanut butter from Shokugeki no Soma. Soma is an amazing cook in the anime, with many of his dishes causing consumers to literally be in ecstasy. However, this dish causes the consumers to feel violated, and Soma brings this dish out when he wants to screw with people. In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, cooking is a major part of the game. It not only is used to recover health, but some foods can even protect you from the harsh temperatures. Then, there’s the dubious food, a disgusting concoction that can be created if Link combines bugs and monster parts together. The result is a censored mix of disgustingness that only recovers one heart.

  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: You’re an all around good character in a video game, and then you’re given a mission that completely brakes your moral compass. Some examples of this include; Scribblenauts, where you can use a baby with steak attached to it to attract lions. In the incredibly fun and challenging Oregon Trail, your party goes through hell to get to Oregon. Death is extremely common, dysentary happens often, colds can be lethal, and it’s almost impossible to get to Oregon with the full crew.

More Cool TV Tropes

Hello fellow media fans! It’s time for another round of TV Tropes! I hope you guys are ready for some truly unique tropes. Now, let’s begin!

  • Psycho for Hire: This is essentially a person who enjoys causing pain and misfortune to others for a price. They can appear to be completely normal, but little do people know, that they’re like dormant volcanoes waiting to erupt. They always have quirks, and at least one signature weapon that they use to inflict any amount of torture. Some examples of these characters include: Ryuji Yamzaki of the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series. He’s a yakuza member with a split personality. He works under the ruthless Geese Howard, and has appeared in many SNK games. He usually appears to be normal and calculating, but his entire personality changes the instant he starts fighting. He  doesn’t have any combat training of his own, and instead uses a uniquely brutal form of street fighting that always involves his signature knife. One of this moves involves him grabbing an opponent by the neck, and slamming him to the ground multiple times while laughing maniacally. Ladd Russo from Baccano! is a complete and utter psychopath with an incredible mind and excellent gun skills.

  • Impromptu Weapon UserThis is an incredibly fun trope that deals with the characters in media that use the weirdest things possible to inflict damage on enemies. Sometimes they end up being a lot more useful that people think, and other times, they just completely suck. Examples of these are: Kanji Tatsumi from Persona 4. He’s the resident badass who beats his enemies down with a freaking desk, chair, or shield. Yoshimitsu from the Soul Calibur series occasionally uses a Shepard’s Crook as a sword. The crook baas upon making contact. We also have The Holy Mackerel as a melee weapon in Team Fortress 2. Scout gets this actual fish wrapped in newspaper to bludgeon his enemies with. If you manage to get a kill with this “weapon” the words FISH KILL! appear on the screen.
