Title: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz
Post by: JonLeung on April 20, 2006, 04:59:27 PM
1. He's not mistaken, but insists that he is.

Inty: Error, from Zelda II: The Adventure Of Link.  He simply stands in a house and says "I am Error."



2. He wasn't published by Nintendo at first, but became a boss character in a Nintendo game.  Now he's a good guy again, or at least when he was on TV, with a slightly different name.

Inty: Lolo / Lololo / Fololo, of the Adventure Of Lolo & Kirby series



3. This Koopaling's airship has no propellors.

Revned: Wendy O. Koopa, from Super Mario Bros. 3



4. In the very first mainstream console game to feature force feedback, a special way of defeating it resulted in the largest vibration possible in the game.

Inty: Mechbeth, who is diverted into an arms factory, or some other explosive building, from planet Macbeth in Star Fox 64



5. What is the name of the character who reports no problems at the beginning of the blatantly-named sixth area of a game?

Inty: Caiman, from "Area 6" of Star Fox 64



6. What is the name of Miyamoto's dog, both in real life and in a game?

Inty: Pik, as seen in Nintendogs, and Pikmin was named after it



7. There are actually more than 386 different species of Pok?mon.  Name at least three Pok?mon that are not (or are not yet) numbered.

Inty: Bonsly, Munchlax, Lucario, various Japanese ones, from the most recent Pok?mon games and movies, also technically acceptable: the "glitch Pok?mon": Missingno. and ???



8. Adult import model Francine Dee has this creature tattooed near her nether regions.

bustin98: Mew, the original "secret Pok?mon"



9. Din is to Chattur'gha as Farore is to Xel'lotath and as Nayru is to?

Revned: Ulyaoth, from Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem - other names refer to Zelda goddesses/Oracles and the other Eternal Darkness "Ancients", corresponding by colour



10. This Hunter's name is half of the North American title of another Nintendo-published game for the same system.

Inty: Trace, from Metroid Prime: Hunters and the other game is Trace Memory, which has other names in other regions



No contest here.  Inty got 7/10.

2. Donkey Kong

3. Wendy O. Koopa

4. Star Fox

6. Pip

I'll let someone else finish up.

I'll admit 2 is an awkward one, but it's not Donkey Kong.



I've edited the post to show who's the first to get the right answer.

Ach, Google failed me for #6. I saw a big ol' article about his Nitendog named Pip. Ah well. And I didn't think it would be Star Fox, but it sure was a big deal when the Rumble Pack came out.


Title: RE: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz
Post by: JonLeung on April 20, 2006, 08:03:31 PM
You mean Rumble Pak (no "c"), and while it sounds like you know which game it is, this is a quiz about a specific character.

Oh, I see. Kind of forgot about that. Lets see... there were different paths, but they all led to Andross? Is he the guy?

Number 8 is a cat. I had fun researching that one. . . :o

If #2 isn't right, then i guess Birdo this time. And Shiggy's dog might be called Pik.

Series-wise, Inty is correct (except for his second guess of #2).



But his answer for #4, while technically correct, could use further clarification.  I suppose the problem is that its name isn't mentioned in-game...



I suppose I should've looked more carefully at #7 (as in, looking at Japanese names), or should've specified I meant English names, but I was definitely looking for Bonsly (Pok?mon XD), Munchlax (Pok?mon: Destiny Deoxys/Pok?mon Dash), and Lucario (Pok?mon: Lucario And The Mystery Of Mew) so you've got that answer.

#4 On Macbeth (I think that's the name of the level where you're the tank), you have to hit the 8 switches travelling by as you fight the boss. He then collides into a train station and makes mucho rumblage.

I might as well give it to you, since you clearly know which it is.  The game doesn't say that its name is Mechbeth (oddly similar to the planet it's on, Macbeth) so I guess most judges would accept that description.



I would've thought the first one was infamous and classic enough, though.  I saw it in a very recent IGN article, actually.

Francine Dee: The tatoo in the back of my neck was done in Las Vegas.  I was holding on to some blue eye babe while getting it done.  The two charms in my back were done in Melrose.  My right ankle tatoo was done in Miami.  My back ankle tat was done in NYC, the dragon on my foot was done in sin-city, and the infamous kitty-cat tattoo was done in Venice Beach,CA.

I don't know if 'kitty-cat' qualifies as an obscure nintendo character.  It probably needs a name or something.  


Title: RE: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz

8. Adult import model Francine Dee has this creature tattooed near her nether regions.



I was reading the question as a Nintendo creature too, but all it asks for is 'creature'.



There's like nothing on the web about her tattoos. Even the site that I pulled that quote from is now expired. I was only able to retrive it through Google's cache.

But surely if you're a Nintendo fan, you'd recognize which "cat" it is.



Though it's not really a cat...


Title: RE: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz
Post by: bustin98 on April 22, 2006, 10:41:03 PM
Alright. One last post on #8 and I'm done with it. I can't find a straight on shot of the tattoo that has enough detail to make out. I'm thinking this has to be some Pokemon. Myuu or Persian. Some Oriental Sex blog is just calling it a sex kitten, in their ignorance I suppose.

So that you don't get in trouble looking up pictures of Francine Dee, and due to lack of interest in this topic, I might as well give bustin98 the point, even if he guessed twice and the closest to the right answer is the Japanese name.  At least I assume that Myuu = Mew, the original "secret Pok?mon", #151, which is the correct answer.



Half the quiz is left.  Did I word them too awkwardly?  Inty's guesses at the first two were incorrect, but were from the correct series.



EDIT: I didn't see that Inty edited his post, either that or I didn't originally see that he correctly guessed "Pik" as the name of Miyamoto's dog, which is what Pikmin is named after.


Title: RE: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz
Post by: Inty on April 26, 2006, 11:36:59 AM
Can you post the questions that are left to answer, and word them a little better? Thanks. I think i have the answer to a couple. But it's getting a little muddled. So just clean it up a bit, asnd i'll give another couple of guesses.

10. This Hunter's name is half of the North American title of another Nintendo-published game for the same system.




Which of these remaining questions do you think could be reworded or expanded upon?


Title: RE: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz
Post by: Inty on April 26, 2006, 11:46:19 AM
Don't worry about the rewording...



2. Wart? Or Lolo..?

5. Caiman (the boss, i think that's his name)

10. Trace

The first one is last, it looks like.



It's a classic bit of trivia.  I'm sure some of you would know it when you see it.

I'll be kicking myself when/if i work it out.

Is the first one Mario from the Super Mario Sunshine game?  He is mistaken for the dark shadow who has painted all over the city.  I haven't finished the game, so I don't know if they turn out to be the same person after all (hence the "not mistaken" part).


Title: RE: Obscure Nintendo Characters Quiz
Post by: JonLeung on May 01, 2006, 11:55:14 AM
The "mistaken" part is the enigma of the question...but if I explained it at all, I'd probably give it away.



Inty's guess was incorrect, but when I said it was at least in the correct series, that should be enough of a hint.  It's from The Legend Of Zelda, and I remarked that it was a classic bit of trivia, so you should think of the early ones.

Error <_<
