    Naw that ain't it

    This may have been a relatively small, local production, I'm not sure

    I'm not sure if we can claim taz on account of him being based on

    Yknow

    The Tasmanian devil

    And the monster tweety is based on mr. Hyde which is British so I don't think we get that either

    there are so many awesome first nations ''monsters''

    and most of them haven't been co-opted by colonialist euro-interpretations!

    Only thing I'd say counts against gossamer is that he isn't really "bigger" than the handful of cartoons he's been in

    He doesn't repreent any kind of cultural idea, the stories about him aren't he particularly reflective of morals or feelings of the time, that kind of thing

    I think there's a difference between "fictional creature" and "folk creature." Folk creatures are larger than life in a way I don't think applies to gossamer

    Bugs bunny is the only looney tunes character I'd say makes a case for himself as a folk figure, he's pretty much a modern version of a mythological trickster animal

    Couldn't do it without getting sued into oblivion but I'd argue that any mythological figure from Scientology counts, Xenu etc

    Afaik there aren't any Mormon creatures that aren't part of christianity as a whole but if there are they'd count too

    Coyote's great but I like Anansi more.

    One of the creatures is literally just Homer Simpson.

    Edit: If we include Canada, The Littlest Hobo should totally be in there.

    There is a beast among the inuit that hunts people of particularly great spiritual power, an eater of shamans, and it may walk in the shape of a bear or an orca or all sorts of things

    That's a terrifying idea on its own

    For a second, I thought you said it could walk into a bar in the shape of an Orca, and that... well, it stood out to me. An alcoholic whale that eats wizards.

    There was a live action movie in the early 90s involving some kid being helped by folk heroes or something, and one of them was Pecos Bill. Don't remember much else except the trailer had him riding the tornado.

    Also, if movies/tv/ads/comics count then there are going to be a ton of eligible monsters.

    Or if you want to do that thing where unknown criminals are revealed to be monsters (ie. I've seen Jack the Ripper turn out to be a vampire in more than one story), then we've got people like D.B. Cooper and the Mad Gasser of Mattoon, and a few unknown serial killers.

    So I guess some people believe there are about 4 more Smash characters coming
    smash-bros.png
    Solely because there are 4 empty spaces on the website

    That's how people figures out how many mkx dudes still had to be revealed

    I've seen worse reasons for believing a video game thing

    were they spaces for mewtwo and lucas in the way back when before they were announced?

    I've also seen people speculate one new character a month up until October (when the ballot ends) to "support" the four blocks on the website. The popular version being 2 Melee Veterans, 2 Brawl Veterans, and 2 Newcomers.

    May: Mewtwo (Melee)
    June: Lucas (Brawl)
    July: Ryu (Newcomer)
    August: Roy (Melee)
    September: Wolf (Brawl)
    October: ??? (Newcomer)

    Of course, then people argue about whether or not the October Newcomer is the ballot winner (as Nintendo is obviously not just going to pick the most-voted but will use it to get a feel for what they should do and would have that feel by then), or a pre-planned Newcomer with the ballot winner(s) coming sometime later.

    Of course, a simple Googling shoots a hole in that theory, because Mewtwo came out in April.

    I kinda hope Youkai Watch doesn't shut down Pokemon or anything

    Because I think the art design of YW is super lame

    I think the chances of that happening are statistically trivial
