Angry Birds | Dora the Explorer | fanart | Galleries | nostalgia | The Lion King | The Little Mermaid | The Powerpuff Girls | The Simpsons
They’ve gained my eternal love with the Ulysses fanart!
I’m kinda bugged that Zelda gets a shaped boob window, when the joke is clearly that she stripped Link and stole his clothes. Plus being way more of a dress than a tunic.
Those Power Puff Girls are awesome.
link is into some weeeeeitd stuff, it seems
Well, there is a possible explanation for the boob-window (albeit not a great one..) where the tunic is slim-cut for his frame, but her chest stretches it wide around that spot, pulled back together by the tie at the throat. It does require him to be exceptionally skinny in the chest, though. The hem length could be likewise him being taller shoulder-to-hip than she is. Both are hard to justify with the Link visible in the background, but it’s a possibility.
Zelda: Considering he was cursed into having to ressurect again and again for all enternity to save your ass, you may want to be a little more getnle, princess.
Dora: my new headcanon. she is Sam and Lara’s adopted child!(what do you mean “Sam and Lara are not a couple”?
Powerpuff girls: okay, i a going to give them that one.
Cats: i don’t even know who these are…
Ranma:looks more like ranma *puts sunglasses on* two-for-one (YEAAAAAAAAAAAAH)
Lion King: still not as fucked up as Kimba ended being…
Angry Birds: 4 birds and that pig is still there? someone sucks at this game…
The Simpsons: They are going to forget this “Future episode” next week
SMurfs: Someone gave them a copy of the movie and now the are going out for revenge.
Little Mermaid: the fish from finding nemo is still scarier.
Bomberman:i am not going to touch that one.
Ulyses: 1) i never watched it 2) this looks more like a star wars crossover than a twisted version.
For some with the idea of “twisted and nightmare inducing” the ranma one is pretty transphobic
Thanks. That was the only one I really made the :/ face to.
I think Ulysses is supposed to be Mass Effect.
“Cats: i don’t even know who these are…”
Whippersnapper! Get off my lawn! *Shakes fist in mock indignation*
I would watch this Dora the Explorer.
Mojo, come play with us. Come play with us.
Damn kid, stop stealing my lines!
No, it’s Ulysses 31. A French anime.
they have light sabers
Is it really? The image is clearly focusing more on a cross-dressing interpretation, that is an entire issue than trans altogether.
Although I agree that Ranma completely warrants a trans reading, I really don’t see this image and its interpretation being about that, and not incidentally as well to warrant the adjective “transphobic” above all.
I know that, I’m referencing that it’s also mixed with Mass Effect for the image. Ala: http://www.hdwallpapers.in/walls/commander_shepard_in_mass_effect_3-HD.jpg
Yeah, but it’s clearly inspired by both the armor and pose in this image:
Everyone in the picture is wearing armor/posed like someone from Mass Effect
The problem is mixing cross-dressing (Which belongs to the Trans* umbrella) as “twisted and nightmare inducing”
That (*) after trans is another set of issues altogether, umbrellas are for the rain and for Rihanna to dance with.
And the “twisted and nightmare inducing” bit is the title the Mary Sue gave it (which is admittedly better than the Kotaku one “monsters)
Doing a cursory search, I just found that the artist just gave the series the subtitle “BADASS”
I think that the artist is not to blame for context they did not provide.
Now, if you look at the description the artist gave to the piece, feel free to make your opinion based on that http://fav.me/d72ygh5
I would watch the hell out of that Ulysse 31 version. Maybe teenage Simpsons too. Yeah, definitely teenage Simpsons.
That’s not just “monster” Ariel, that’s Ripjaws Ariel.
She’s gotten her hands on the Omnitrix!
I gave some serious sideeye to that one, too. Hmm. The description to the art image by the artist also makes me sideeye and grimace.
So, why is Zelda stealing Link’s clothes and hero shtick on the same level of nightmarish as bloodstained Powerpuff Girls, Dora the Guerilla Warrior,or an army of Smurfs on the march?
I can sorta buy the hem length, but the chest area is obviously not stretched. Those lines are clearly intentionally shaped to surround her breasts, then create a collar to hold it together.
I’d rather see Zelda directly in Link’s clothes. They’d be baggy and the belt would be cinched in a bit more, and the hose would bag and droop at the knees. I think it’d be funny.
Cause it’s more badass.
See, I was expecting all of them to be like the Little Mermaid one and like the title says, be terrifying. And the first one I see is the Link/Zelda picture and all I can think is “… Okay, besides MRAs, who is actually afraid of this?” Maybe the post title is just misleading.
This also. The majority of these are just re-interps, rather than truly twisted.
I find the artist’s description also problematic. Particularly in referring to Lana Wachowski as “Larry” and making a gender-confusion joke to the same.
This one too http://www.justpushstart.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/mass-effect.jpg
Yeah, it also uses the pose for Liara from the comic miniseries.
my Aunty Arianna got a
nearly new silver Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab by working part time off of a
macbook air. try this Big41.ℂom
Dora and Ulysses 31 are my favorites. The Power Puff Girls are really creepy, though.
Many of these actually look cool and nothing like being ‘scary’!
Like that Dora one especially, ha!
There historical female military leaders are here to kick butt and chew bubble gum, and they're all out of bubble gum.
Six video game couples that have stuck with me over the years, each representing a different sort of love.
