See, this, I think, is what I love about Kronk. On the shallowest surface level, he fills the “low IQ sidekick” role. But ONLY on the shallowest surface level.
I’d have to watch the movie again to go into any detail, but Kronk is actually the smartest damn person IN this movie. There’s nothing he doesn’t know, he’s got all this specialized knowledge, dude is probably horrifically well read. He’s NOT stupid, he’s just eager to please and doesn’t have a proper “No” threshhold.
In the second gif, he’s like - “No, wait, I’m not who you think I am.”
Then in the fourth, he’s like - “Oh my God, the cook is gone and she’s got all these orders. If somebody doesn’t cook that up people are going to get upset! They’ll take it out on this poor woman who’s been on her feet all day and doesn’t deserve their wrath! And…oh my God…PEOPLE WILL BE HUNGRY!”
Then in the sixth gif he’s like - “NOT ON KRONK’S WATCH!”
He’s doing the right thing and he knows it. No judgement, no condescension, just always a moment to register the task at hand, determine the most logical course of action to completing it, and then it’s GO GO GO.
His only problem is that he never stops to ask himself whether this is actually his problem to solve, or whether people are taking advantage of him, and I love him for it.
I just…love him.
Kronk is the best hands down.

/v/ makes the next LoZ game
What if Nintendo made a Zelda game where you played as Zelda, disguised as Sheik, during the seven years Link is sleeping in the Temple of Time?
Aside from Impa in Skyward Sword, there’s not much we know about the Sheikah, retainers of the Hyrule Royal Family, and why they all disappeared. And what of Hyrule’s “dark and bloody past” in the Shadow Temple? Could the Sheikah and their disappearance have anything to do with it? There’s a whole chunk of lore and story and money to be made from such an idea!
-Stealth-action game complete with Sheik’s gear and abilities from both OoT and the Smash games
-Explore the secrets of Hyrule hidden by the Sheikah
-Learn the ways of the Sheikah
-Follow Zelda’s quest as she copes with the loss of her kingdom, her own disappearance in her people’s time of need, uncover Ganondorf’s plans, and help set the stage for the Hero of Time’s own work.
This would be awesome, but I’m afraid it might be too grimdark for Zelda. /v/ actually came up with a good idea.
I want this to be a real game!
CAN THIS BE A THING. LIKE, A LEGITIMITE THING? I NEED THIS LIKE AIR.
Pretty sure I would sell my soul for this.
Because I could
basically the day the third Hobbit movie is released on extended blu-ray and I can marathon 20+ hours of all six movies I will finally achieve self-actualization.
A thought on Kamen Rider Wizard
Have you ever really considered just how terrifying it is for the Riders to be in a situation that requires Dragorise or Chimerise?
Here there are, inside the memories of a person who’s about to give up hope. There’s a demon in here that if it breaks through is going to kill the person. Every time the demon flails around, more cracks form in the already flimsy barrier between the person’s spirit and reality.
So what do the Ringed Wizards do?
They call out their own inner demons.
With one ring, they give the Phantoms inside them a chance to get out, to become more powerful. Even though Haruto may shout “Dragon, Submit to Me!” He still needs to force his Phantom to obey his commands. And it’s not just a battle of might. It’s a battle of Will. Haruto and Nitoh need to maintain a tight grasp on their Phantoms.
They call forth their inner demons to exorcise the demons of another person. That person then becomes inextricably linked to them, or seeks to get away as quickly as possible. And for these two wizards, the latter option is preferable. Because that means one less person in the line of fire.
Those who run away from the Wizards need never fear being there when the Phantoms grow strong enough to break through fully. When Wizardragon and Chimaera finally run out of use for their human hosts, they will break through and consume them.
And that’s why they try so damned hard to destroy Phantoms before they have a chance to break the Gates. Because every battle in a new person’s Underworld is another step closer to the day when hope fails and the Dragon and Chimaera are freed.
“Because no one else will!”
Literally, one of the greatest pieces of dialogue in gaming.

So I’ve been thinking about Wizard’s Dragon forms
Flame uses Dragon’s Head
Hurricane uses the wings
Water uses the tail
Land is probably going to use legs or something?
This obviously means that Haruto is going to have some badass full Dragon form right?
I was thinking of the ramifications of this.
More than once has it been foreshadowed that Dragon IS BAD NEWS
- In the beginning Haruto says he is keeping a Phantom inside him and that how he can use magic. So what happens when Dragon is out in the real world?
- Koyomi has made it really clear that she does not think the Dragon rings are a good idea.
- WISEMAN WAS TOTALLY EXPECTING THE BLUE STONE TO BE TAKEN. THAT OBVIOUSLY IS BAD.
- Dragon is a Phantom, not a cute lil’ guy. Nuff said.
I have a really bad feeling about about this whole USING PARTS OF DRAGON IN THE REAL WORLD.
Like is Wiseman going to drop down at some point when Haruto is in (my hypothetical) Dragon form and separate them because it’s the fact that Haruto is keeping Dragon INSIDE him that he can use magic.
Auuuugh I’m just wondering what’s going to happen and I need to get this out.
One thing I really LOVE about Katara is that she’s a woman who really OWNS her anger.
Like, girls are taught to never get angry. Never be rude. Don’t yell. It makes you unlikable. It’s not lady-like.
And Katara just says fuck you to that. She’s sweet, and mothering, and caring, and nurturing almost all the time. But when she’s angry? She’s ANGRY. And she OWNS it.
She yells at people, she threatens people. Sometimes she’s vain and jealous on top of it all too, and she owns up to that. It takes a special kind of courage and strength to look someone in the eye and honest to god YELL at them.
Especially the fight above. Paku is an elder, a man in charge. He’s in a privileged position of power over her. And Katara doesn’t take that shit anyway.
God damn A+ Female empowerment right there.
Katara is a nurturing fighter
THIS IS WHY I LOVE HER
And even if at the end of the day, everything does not go as planned, she’s able to move past the anger even if she still feels something is wrong or unjust. Because she can’t right every wrong, and every human can’t always do the right thing. I love that they gave her those flaws, but doesn’t let it consume the character, if that makes sense. Like in ONE OF THE BEST EPISODES EVER, The Southern Raiders, she could never forgive the mother fucker that killed her mother, never, and she knows that. Even when she knew how sad and pathetic he grew to be, she couldn’t make that forgive him. But still, she stepped away from her anger because she didn’t want to be that person.
