Hello everyone, and welcome to another look at a well-loved topic! As said before, I am a huge fan of the Pokemon franchise. I adore the gigantic amount of characters and their very unique designs. One of the most important tools in a Pokemon Trainer’s arsenal is the Pokedex, a compendium of all the various creatures you will meet on your journey. Despite the “E” rating, Japan has managed to put some pretty disturbing information into the dex. It becomes less of a children-friendly game, and more of a horror story. So, to celebrate the month of Halloween, I will be adding the most bizarre and messed up entries that I can find. Now, let’s dive into the amazing world of Pokemon!
Bruxish The Gnash Teeth Pokemon (Based off of a filefish or reef triggerfish)
Size: 2″11 Weight: 41.9lbs
Bruxish is a water/psychic fish Pokemon from Generation VII. It’s quite colorful, and has a mouth that’s full of sharp teeth. They can be caught from fishing spots in the Secluded Shore.
Pokedex entry from Pokemon Moon: It stuns its prey with psychokinesis and grinds them to mush with its strong teeth. Even Shelder’s shell is no match for it. (Yes brutal death, totally a kid’s game!)
Dusclops The Beckon Pokemon (Based off of a Hitotsume-kozo)
Size: 5’03” Weight: 67.5 lbs
Dusclops is a pure ghost type Pokemon from Generation III. It’s a fairly large, cyclopean ghost with a grey body that resembles bandages on a mummy. It can be found be leveling up Duskull to level 37.
Pokedex entry from Omega Ruby: Dusclops’s body is completely hollow—–there is nothing at all inside. It is said that its body is like a black hole. This Pokemon will absorb anything into its body, but nothing will ever come back out. (O_O)
Hello fellow comic book fans! It’s time to spook up this post just in time for Halloween. While Tuesday is usually set for strange comic book characters, I am going to change things up. This week, we will be looking at some truly insane characters. They are designed with the intent to disturb the reader, and no punches will be pulled. This post is going to be a lot more graphic then usual, so get ready as we explore the unhinged psyche of the comic book world.
James Braddock Status: Hero /Villain First Appeared: Captain Britain Weekly #9 (December 1976) Powers: Ability to manipulate reality, which can distort and twist objects and people into grotesque and agonizing shapes. He also has incredible durability.
James Braddock is the older brother of Captain Britain and Psylocke. He originally was a successful Formula 1 racer who participated in many illegal activities. He was eventually kidnapped and brutally tortured by the tyrannical Doctor Crocodile. His incredible powers began to manifest when he lost his sanity. The powers made James one of the most dangerous beings in the universe, and his unhinged mind made him very unpredictable. (This is one of the most deranged and awesome comic book characters of all time.) (His face is also extremely off-putting.)
Flamingo Real Name: Eduardo Flamingo Status: Serial Killer First Appeared: Batman #666 (July, 1 2007) Powers/Weapons: Enhanced senses, feral strength, Invulnerability
Eduardo was an average Joe, until he was brainwashed by the Mob. He turned into a horrifying serial killer, and murdered his entire family. His mind was completely altered, turning him into an unpredictable maniac. He also loved to eat the faces of his victims after killing them. Flamingo is most well known for almost killing Red Hood. Part of Hood’s left ear was eaten, and he was shot in the kneecaps. Eduardo seemingly met his end by a pile of rubble. (O_O)
Murmur Real Name: Michael Christian Amar Status: Ex Surgeon/Serial Killer First Appeared: Flash Iron Heights (August 2001) Powers/Weapons: A ruthless assassin skilled with a knife, which he uses to murder his victims and cut off their tongues. Also a very strange blood type which makes him immune to all viruses and poisons.
Michael was a well respected surgeon with many personal demons. He eventually went on a killing spree to supposedly stop the voices in his head. He was captured by the police, and put to death by lethal injection. Unfortunately, Michael’s incredibly abnormal blood typing negated the poison, and he was sentenced to the Iron Heights Maximum Security Prison. While in prison, Michael committed a horrifying act of self-mutalation by stitching up his mouth, and cutting off his tongue. He escaped prison, and then joined Blacksmith and the Rogues. (His face is what nightmares are made of!)
