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!)
Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my Gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome pieces. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!
The Smiling Spider by Odilon Redon Lithograph 1888
This is a grotesquely awesome work by “French Symbolist” Redon. The titular spider is atramentous with 8 very long legs. The most surreal part of the piece is the spider’s face. It has human-like features and short, fang-like teeth. It’s also missing one eye, and almost absorbs the background. While, it’s not the most colorful piece, I believe that this adds to the creepiness factor. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
Necronom IV by H.R. Giger 1976 Airbrush on paper
This is an incredibly awesome work by the genius of Aliens, H.R. Giger. This is a painting of a fierce-looking Necromorph with multiple tentacles. The face reminds me of a dragonfish, and the long head is like a giant spine. The use of dark colors really brings this work to life. I adore the incredibly intricate design, and creepy visuals. Tell me what you think of this horror masterpiece in the comments’ section below.
Hello fellow gamers! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to cringe, as we look at some horrible cover art. Now, let the crapfest begin!
Dudes With Attitude for the NES (1990)
Dudes With Attitude was a piss poor action/adventure game for the NES. The object of the game is to use the “dudes” to collect colored gems and avoid the evil Gumsplats. Unfortunately the game had horrible controls and graphics. The cover doesn’t do anything to numb the pain, and is in fact, scary as hell! The art depicts 3 sentient balls surrounding a treasure chest. The leftmost figure is a blue female with black shades and a pucker mouth. The rightmost image is a yellow male with spiky hair, and a “shit eating” grin. The middlemost image is the fugliest of them all, and depicts a red male ball with an eyepatch, mustache, and demonic grin. This is completely unsettling, and causes the viewer to stay away from this abomination. (Come on, artists! You can do bettter than this!)
Final Zone II for the Turbo Grafx 16 (1990)
Final Zone II is a wonderfully fun shooter that’s quite similar to Ikari Warriors. If you have watched the Happy Console Gamer, there are chances that you have heard of this game. Two covers were made, one for Japan, and one for North America. The Japanese one is very cool, and portrays the main characters in an Anime style. The North American cover, other the other hand, is a giant pile of vomit! The artist must have been hitting the crack pipe pretty hard when he birthed this monstrosity! The character’s proportions are completely askew, and the faces look like grotesque bobble heads. The robot suits are morbidly obese, and the weapons look like construction equipment! Tell me what you think of this shitshow in the comments’ section below.
All animals and other organisms found in various books and websites
Hello fellow outdoor enthusiasts! It’s Tuesday and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more amazing organisms. Now, let’s start exploring!
Sundew (Drosera) Diet: Carnivorous Size: Up to 100cm Habitat: Every Continent besides Antarctic. Every species is divided into several habitats based on climate.
The Sundew is a strange, carnivorous plant that’s nearly found world wide. It has green leaves and many reddish tentacles. These tentacles are covered in a sticky digestive enzymes, which are used to attract prey. The sweet smelling secretion attracts insects, and when they get too close, it attacks! The tentacle trap the poor bug, and begin to digest its body. After the bug’s demise, its nutrients will be absorbed through the leaves to the other parts of the plant. The Sundew also has many medicinal purposes such as being used in teas to prevent whooping cough and asthma attacks.
Corpse Flower (Rafflesia arnoldii) Size: 3 ft (The largest was 3.4 ft) Diet: Parasitic Habitat: The Rainforests of Sumatra Status: Becoming Endangered
The Rafflesia has the Guinness World Record for being the largest individual flower on Earth. It’s a parasitic organism that’s pollinated by Corpse Flies. It’s a bright red flower with many large, spotted leaves. It’s unisexual, and male and female flowers must be close by for successful pollination. It can weigh up to a mighty 24 lbs, and is continuously dying out due to increased human activity. This disturbs the bud production of the plant. The nickname, “Corpse Flower”, comes from the plant’s stench, which is said to resemble rotten flesh. It’s truly a fascinating plant that we must try to protect before they all become extinct.
All works found on larrycarlson.bigcartel.com and larrycarlson.tumblr.com
Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some transcendent art pieces. Now, let’s dive into the amazing world of Larry Carlson!
Alone and Unafraid- Part Three by Larry Carlson 2012 Digital chromogenic print
This is a large and epic work by “Surrealist Guru”, Larry Carlson. The overall presentation of the piece is awe-inspiring, and Carlson’s fantastic genius leeks through. Carlson has always had a way with cosmic elegance, and this painting is no exception. The atramentous sky reminds me of one of those old rainbow papers we used as kids. He has multicolored stars across a black background, and also curved lines representing the eight planets. As we descend down the piece, we see a cosmic, satellite-like, entity with a woman’s head. A roller coaster is attached to it, and we see it emitting brilliant white lightning. Diving even deeper down, our eyes meet a robed figure with two faces. It appears to be holding some sort of spherical staff, which is radiating with a purple aura. Lastly, we see the ground of the work,which seems to be made out of melting saxophones. I absolutely adore this piece, and I would love to hear what you guys think of it in the comments’ section below.
Colorized Afternoon by Larry Carlson Pigment print on metallic paper
Here we have a vibrantly brilliant work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. The colors of the piece really “pop out” at the viewer, and transport them into a surreal world of intense serenity. Everything about the painting incorporates the senses, whether it be the multicolored sky, or the floral-patterned grass. While not being one of Carlson’s biggest works, it still aims to blow the viewer’s mind. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
