Kamui Baratheon Chooses to Smash! by PinkDuskStone
Kamui Baratheon Chooses to Smash!
「準備はいい?」 ("Are you ready?")
"3... 2... 1... GO!"

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/WiiU introduced so many unexpected, mechanically unusual fighters; the absolute newest one of all debuting characters is Corrin (Kamui in Japanese) from Fire Emblem Fates, beating out Greninja from Pokémon X/Y. Corrin, like Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, and fellow Fire Emblem character Robin, has male and female models for alternate palettes/costumes, all up to the player's preference.

Corrin is one of the strongest characters in Smash 4, having one of the longest ranges in their attacks, especially with the forward smash. All tilt attacks have combo potential and the Side B move (Dragon Lunge) is unique in that Corrin's sword sticks into a hard surface and they can follow up in different ways. Corrin's counter has massive knockback and can even KO opponents at low percentages when close to the top of the screen.

Since Corrin is a Fire Emblem character, they join the swordsmen/swordsmaid club of Smash characters. Corrin is also barefoot, joining Wii Fit Trainer and Ryu in that department. Unlike other Fire Emblem characters, Corrin uses shoes for custom equipment instead of boots. Male Corrin is a bishonen, as pretty as his female counterpart, but he's still nothing compared to Marth.

"Corr-in! Corr-in! Corr-in!"/"Ka-mu-i! Ka-mu-i! Ka-mu-i!"

What's unexpected like Corrin's debut in Smash? The fact that the male's Japanese voice actor Nobunaga Shimazaki voices Joffrey Baratheon in the Japanese dub of Game of Thrones. It's quite a contrast seeing how two princes who are complete opposites have the same voice actor. What would be more perfect than a fusion between Fire Emblem and Game of Thrones?

As stated before, I haven't seen Game of Thrones, but I learned enough about some of the characters by reading TV Tropes and watching Honest Trailers. Joffrey is considered to be the most despicable character in the series and arguably fiction in general, and he makes the picture for the Royal Brat trope. From what I can understand, Joffrey is basically Eric Cartman if he were in the Medieval times. I find that Joffrey has similarities to Scar as well, including his insane immaturity, smug, sadistic, selfish streak and "Screw the Rules, I Make Them!" philosophy. Unlike Scar and Cartman however, there isn't much of anything to like about Joffrey, so hardly anyone, in-universe or real life, misses him when "fans-know-what" happens in Season 4. He also cannot comprehend love or sex and the only thing that really turns him on is torturing people.

If Corrin was like Joffrey, I think he would command his subjects to kiss his feet, only to kick them in the face.

Fire Emblem belongs to Shouzou Kaga, Nintendo, and Intelligent Systems. Super Smash Bros. belongs to Masahiro Sakurai, Nintendo, HAL Laboratory, Sora Ltd., Game Arts, and Bandai Namco Games. Game of Thrones belongs to George R.R. Martin, David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, and HBO.

「勝負あったね。」/「上手くいったね。」 ("I win!" / "That went well.")
"The winner is... Corrin!/Kamui!"

The new Pokémon Sun & Moon Trailer has been released! We now get a glimpse at the version-exclusive non-Legendaries, the English name for Rockruff's evolution, and new mechanics that is to come!

The first mon revealed in the trailer is Passimian (ナゲツケザル), the Teamwork Pokémon. It 6'07" (2.0 m), 182.5 lbs (82.9 kg), and is the noble Fighting Type. Passimian gets a new ability called Receiver, which lets it copy an ally's ability onto itself whenever they faint. Passimian is an ape with dark-grey and white fur and carries fruit in one front paw, with a matching hat. It is exclusive to Sun and lives in a 20-30 member troop. 10 in top-condition are required to find food. The teamwork is strong, so the boss will decide what mark to place on his/her subordinates arms to distinguish them. They then go through training to improve coordination and passing Berries; this is said to be so hard that some Passimian end up running away. Passimian toss Berries to attack, and they can pass them to other Passimian to confuse foes. Hard Berries aren't just used for attack; soft Berries are also used for blinding the foe with a splatter. Passimian wants its Trainer to have leader qualities, and will watch him/her as they throw Poké Balls; they will not listen to anyone with poor form. With all this talk about teamwork and using Berries like basketballs/footballs/Quaffles, I think Passimian will have the moves Helping Hand, Fling, and Bestow.

Passimian's version counterpart is Oranguru (ヤレユータン), the Sage Pokémon. It stands at 4'11" (1.5 m), weighing in at 167.6 lbs (76.1 kg), and is the same Type as Girafarig and Aria Meloetta. Oranguru resembles a white orangutan with purple, cape-like fur over its shoulders and it carries a fan made with the same fur as well as leaves. This ape's abilities are Inner Focus and Telepathy, and its new attack is Instruct, which makes the target use its most recent move instantly. This can make interesting tricks when using all-target moves like Earthquake and Surf, because you can spam like no tomorrow while not hurting Oranguru! Oranguru is a solitary creature living in deep forests where they meditate. In ancient times, Oranguru were believed to be "the people of the forest". This is a reference to the orangutan being called, "the man of the woods". It is kind to other forest-dwelling Pokémon by providing them with food for the hungry and medicine for the sickly. Oranguru sometimes acts on its own and uses even manmade items like Poké Balls, which makes them difficult to handle at times. Oranguru makes its fans itself, by using its own fur to tie the leaves together.

For both Passimian and Oranguru, I think they'll get Gunk Shot since every other monkey/ape-based Pokémon can learn it via tutoring. That, and it's a reference to how monkeys/apes are notorious for throwing... at their aggressors.
Also, both of them are not actual gorillas, so don't bother with the Harambe memes.

The English name for Rockruff's evolution is Lycanroc, the Wolf Pokémon. Both Midday and Midnight forms are Rock-Type. Both of them weigh in at 55.1 lbs (25 kg), but Midday is 2'07" (0.8 m) and Midnight is 3'07" (1.1 m). Both of them get Keen Eye, but Midday's other ability is Sand Rush whereas Midnight is Vital Spirit. Midday Lycanroc is literally a lone wolf; it lives solo in mountains and deserts with its own territory, which helps avoid unnecessary conflict. It is very loyal and obedient, especially if the Trainer accepted it during its rebellious Rockruff period. Midday uses its speed to bewilder opponents and dodge onslaughts while attacking with the rocks in its mane. Its signature move is Accelerock, which is a priority Rock move. Midnight Lycanroc, on the other hand, fights differently. Instead, it lets the foe attack it, and dishes out double of the pain in return. Midnight loves to battle strong opponents so much that pain doesn't bother it if it means victory. In fact, it gets so excited that its red eyes glow. Midnight hates being commanded to do something it doesn't agree with or if forced to battle, but it will give its all if it's coming from a Trainer it trusts. The move Midnight gets is Counter, matching its description.

Trainer Customization is returning, and there are more options than ever! You can even decide to have different shades of brown hair, and even eye colors like yellow, burgundy, and purple! Also, you can get purple hair.

Pokémon-Amie is expanded into Pokémon Refresh, where you can groom Pokémon and even cure their status effects!

Pikachu and Eevee are getting exclusive Z-Moves! Pikachu's is called Catastropika, and the way it mimics the Trainer's poses is adorable! It reminds me of Shorty and Columbo dancing together in Bust a Move/Groove! Pikachu is not a Memetic Loser after all! The trailer has it using the Z-Move on Meowth, of course.
Eevee's Z-Move is Extreme Evoboost; unlike many of the Z-Moves we've seen, it is a status move. The animation looks cool, where Eevee combines all the powers of all Eeveelutions introduced up to this point, like Megaman's Final Smash.

Magic Knight of Iron, Brom by PinkDuskStone
Magic Knight of Iron, Brom
Jeremy Irons is a fantastic actor with a unique voice to boot. He has a gift of portraying charismatic characters with an entertaining flair to them, especially for villain roles. Being pigeonholed into antihero/(anti)villain roles does mean less chance of survival in the story; Irons has "died" in Dead Ringers (twice), The Lion King, Die Hard With a Vengeance, Lolita, Dungeons & Dragons, Eragon, Appaloosa, and Beautiful Creatures. Irons is also willing to take a role for some cash, such as in Dungeons & Dragons, Eragon, and Beautiful Creatures. Even when those films would turn out in low quality, Irons helps bring them up to "So Bad, It's Good" level.

Irons was Profion, the Big Bad of Dungeons & Dragons. Like the Nostalgia Critic reviewed, the film had wooden acting from most of the cast, cheaply done special effects, and a story with more holes than Swiss cheese in a hole-puncher factory. Irons signed up to be in the movie to pay for his newly-bought Kilcoe Castle. (He's a king in his own right all along!) Later on, Irons would then be cast in another fantasy film for the sake of earning cash.

In Eragon, Irons played Brom, the father (figure) to the title character. Although much of the film adaptation to Christopher Paolini's novel wasn't well-received thanks to many of the changes, Irons and Speelers are still the highlights of the movie. Going back to reading Eragon, I would always imagine Irons' portrayal of the character; while Irons didn't match the physical description, he did capture the personality.

Not much to say about Kingdom of Heaven, except that Irons' character Tiberias has a scar on his face like his other famous role...

Unlikely Birthday Animals by PinkDuskStone
Unlikely Birthday Animals
Remember when I said that there would be another one of my favorite films having two actors with the same birthday? Well, here's something that I wasn't prepared for when I first learned this: Scar and Pumbaa from The Lion King have the same birthday!

OMG timon 

If any of you have looked through my Gallery and Favorites, then it should be pretty clear that I am a huge fan of Scar. He has a cool design, his song is catchy (I can listen to "Be Prepared" on repeat and never get tired of it), and he was the closest to winning; as far as personality goes, snarky characters are my type since they can deliver some comedy gold. Comedy aside, Scar is frightening when things are serious. Just look at the Nightmare Fuel page. (You can't spell scary without Scar!) As a villain, Scar does the job really well, having orchestrated a coup d'etat which resulted in successfully killing off a main character (and having it stick!). Being a family member to the hero not only makes him an interesting antagonist, but also very dangerous. What would be the cherry on top to such an awesome character? His voice, provided by British actor Jeremy Irons.

Irons is a talented actor who has appeared in many productions. This year, he starred in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will also be in the Assassin's Creed movie coming out in three months. Other movies he did include Dead Ringers, Appaloosa, Being Julia, Beautiful Creatures, Kingdom of Heaven, Merchant of Venice, The Man in the Iron Mask, Lolita, Die Hard With a Vengeance, and Reversal of Fortune (which he won an Oscar for). In otherwise bad movies such as Eragon and Dungeons & Dragons, Irons hams up his performance and easily becomes the main highlight. Besides Scar, other voice-work Irons did are Moe's bar rag in The Simpsons episode "Moe Goes From Rags to Riches" and the audiobook for James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. Irons can sing, as demonstrated in Lerner & Loewe's My Fair Lady and of course Disney's The Lion King. Unfortunately in the latter, Irons' voice gave out when he sang/yelled the line, "YOU WON'T GET A SNIFF WITHOUT ME!" during "Be Prepared"; Jim Cummings, who voiced Ed, took over for the rest of the song.

Pumbaa is one half of the comic relief duo of The Lion King. He and Timon are considered to be Base Breakers because depending on who you ask, their antics and personalities are either hilarious and endearing or obnoxious and annoying. Pumbaa even has the "honor" of being the first Disney character to fart on-screen. (You can't spell Pumbaa without P.U.!) In other language dubs like Japanese and French, Timon and Pumbaa are considered to be more likable and less annoying. Other than Ed, Pumbaa is the only character who keeps his original voice actor in everything relating to The Lion King, including Kingdom Hearts 2 and both TV series.

Ernie Sabella is not quite as well-known as most of the other cast members of The Lion King, but he has worked with Nathan Lane in several productions, including Guys and Dolls, Mouse Hunt, and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Sabella even appeared in a deleted scene from The Producers, reuniting him with Lane and The Lion King co-star Matthew Broderick.

Both Scar and Pumbaa are very different from most of the cast where beauty equals goodness. The former is designed to be creepy, while the latter is supposed to be ugly. Of course, beauty, like the truth, is in the eye of the beholder. They're also over-the-top in an entertaining way, with Pumbaa being a literal Large Ham. Scar and Pumbaa are also subject to the most common cartoon error that I pointed out in my "Say Ah" and "Whale of a Time" pictures. Scar, Timon, Pumbaa, and Simba (sometimes) are drawn with uvulas when they are only present in humans. Even stranger when Scar has one while his brother doesn't (and flaunts it whenever he sings the refrain).

In the picture above, Scar is annoyed at Pumbaa for blowing out the candles too soon (and not with his mouth).

Happy Birthday, Jeremy Irons and Ernie Sabella! Have your cake and eat it too 

The Lion King belongs to Disney.

Donna and West's Birthday by PinkDuskStone
Donna and West's Birthday
It's Donna Tubbs-Brown and Mayor Adam West's birthday! Donna's gift is a copy of the Lifetime movie Georgia O'Keeffe starring Jeremy Irons. Why Georgia O'Keeffe? Because that film was released 7 years ago today, and is Irons' birthday as well. Mayor West's presents are Batman and Catman action figures as well as the Zeus Cervas collection of SpongeBob SquarePants episodes. Does that sound contrived? Yeah, like a lot of his bad episodes.

Sanaa Lathan starred in many movies and TV shows, including Brown Sugar, Alien Vs. Predator, Nip/Tuck, and A Raisin in the Sun (hence the Phylicia Rashad joke in one episode of The Cleveland Show).

West is well-known for playing parody versions of himself in many shows, thus being the trope namer for Adam Westing. One of his non-Westing roles is Batman from the 1966 film and its TV show; this is one of the inspirations for his superhero-esque characters such as Catman from The Fairly OddParents and young MermaidMan from the episode "Back to the Past" (who could have guessed, Cervas wrote this one!).
Happy Birthday, Sanaa Lathan and Adam West! Have your cake and eat it too

Yes, I did a couple of German and French voice actor(s). Thomas Fritsch, Julius Jellinek, Eberhard Pruter, and Jean Reno. All of them are related to The Lion King.
