Respect The Mask!

Hi there. Remember meee!
Hi there. Remember meee!

Welcome to the exclusive "April Fools Day" special installment of the Clown Respect Circus. Today is the holiday of practical jokes and hoaxes, and what better way to celebrate than with The Mask? Pity whoever finds this ancient mask, for whoever puts it on will gain reality-bending powers (such as superspeed, strength, and invincibility), but at the cost of their self control and sanity. The mask will bypass the wearer's psychological inhibitions and turn him completely insane!

For further inquiry, here's how The Mask works as put into words within the series:

Understand? .....no? Me neither. Moving on!

I.) Durability / Healing Factor

No Caption Provided

The Mask's most impressive ability is his outrageous healing factor and physical imperviousness to any sort of damage (...besides that one time when he got sick with a cold). He is literally invincible and can regenerate from anything.

  • Here the Mask is first experimenting with the limits of his seemingly endless durability. He starts by bonking himself on the head with a hammer, which has no effect. He then takes a pistol and shoots a hole right through his hand (it painlessly heals). Finally, he confronts the police and tanks their gunfire effortlessly.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3
  • He gets slammed on the ground, gets up, and takes a gunshot right to the face! He shrugs it off and complains that his suit got messed up.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
  • Gets blasted by gunfire from behind AND from the front.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
  • Gets blasted by a ridiculous amount of attacks from all kinds of weaponry coming from all directions. It's ridiculous!!
No Caption Provided

  • More ridiculousness— this time with alien creatures.
No Caption Provided

  • Gets impaled in the chest by two swords. No biggie.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
  • Not even complete decapitation will leave a scratch.
No Caption Provided
  • More decapitation.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
  • The Mask tanks a thrown hand-grenade.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
  • As strong and mighty as Lobo is, he can't even begin to harm The Mask! Whether it be decapitation, hack-and-slash, brute force, explosives— nothing.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3
  • The Mask and Lobo survive an explosion at ground zero that destroyed an entire solar system.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3
  • Even if The Mask is vaporized, he can exist as a ghost just for fun. And return to normal whenever he decides to.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3
  • As you can see, after this massive explosion, the Mask’s healing factor is significantly better than Lobo's because he doesn't have to wait for his body to regrow— Instead, he can instantly revert back to normal as he pleases! ((Lobo can suck it))
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5
  • Another showing of his insane healing factor: In one panel the Mask has all of his limbs ripped off, then in the next *POOF!* —back to normal.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
  • Poison does nothing either.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

II.) Speed

No Caption Provided

Another power the mask grants its wearer is the ability to move at cartoonishly fast speeds. He kinda travels in a similar way to The Flash by propelling himself to tornado speed.

  • The Mask mimics the speed of Jay Garrick.
No Caption Provided
  • Circles the earth several times in an instant.
No Caption Provided

  • Moves from the ground, to the top of a building incredibly fast.
No Caption Provided

  • Dodges gunfire at point-blank range. Just because he can.
No Caption Provided
  • Effortlessly dodges and wears out a thug trying to hit him.
No Caption Provided
  • Speedblitz'es a couple of crooks.

III.) 'Ex Nihilo' Object Manifestation

No Caption Provided

Ex Nihilo is a Latin phrase meaning "out of nothing". It often appears in conjunction with the concept of creation, as in creatio ex nihilo, meaning "creation out of nothing"— and the Mask has the ability to do exactly that: pull out weapons and other objects out of thin air.

  • Here's the famous scene in which the Mask demonstrates how to use balloon sculpting to make a Tommy Gun.

  • Creates a crazy triple gatling gun weapon and another crazy multi-weapon machine gun.

  • Another crazy multi-weapon gun thingy of guns.

  • And here's a 50 Megaton atomic bomb.

IV.) Fights

No Caption Provided
  • The Mask vs an alien mutant invader. A perfect example to The Mask's near-omnipotent powers is when he shapeshifts his head/mouth to giantic sizes and literally eats the entire mutant hulk.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
  • The Mask vs Blackbeard the pirate ghost. He simply vacuums him up, uigi-style.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
  • The Mask vs a powerful voodoo priest. The priest thinks his black magic is enough to beat the Mask, but gets toyed with throughout the entire fight.

  • The Mask vs this random guy.

V.) Looney Miscellaneous

No Caption Provided

The Mask also comes with an assortment of unpredictable and wacky abilities, such as shape-shifting and power-mimicry. He can do pretty much whatever his imagination limits him to.

Shapeshifting

  • Disguised as a medic to freak out the patient.

Power-Mimicry

  • A-ha! Why not take upon the form of "Super Joker"! The Mask manifests superpowers akin to those of Superman, displaying his power-mimicry ability.

Comic Vine Hacks n' Loopholes

life · hack

lifehack (ˈlaɪfˌhæk)

noun

1. Together the words “life” and “hack” create a phrase that describe any hacks, tips and tricks that get things done quickly by automating, increasing productivity and organizing.

Have you heard about lifehacks? 70% of all people use some form of lifehacking in their everyday lives. But if you're anything like me, Comic Vine IS your everyday life!! So today I'll be sharing a few loopholes, tips, and novelty methods of mine that just might spice up your daily Vine-manship..... wait, what?

Hack #1) Bump your threads WITHOUT COMMENTING.

Tired of bumping your own threads? Every thread you make doesn't receive enough attention so you're constantly having to comment "bump" on a daily basis, then your thread ends up with more "bumps" than actual comments from other people!

No Caption Provided

☝ This is the WRONG way to bump. The thread is overfilling with bumps and it's wasting comment space. You can bump your threads without posting a comment using this sneaky unknown trick:

Standalone Sticker RIGHTThe RIGHT way to bump threads

Step 1: Simply go the first page and click for the OP.

Step 2: Don't make any changes; Hit .

Step 3: The thread will automatically be bumped to the top of the forum!

No Caption Provided

Hack #2) Post more than twice in a row.

Trying to increase your post count? Surpass the website's pesky "2 Posts In a Row" limit using this simple glitch:

Step 1: You need an iPhone or a similar mobile device.

Step 2: Go to www.ComicVine.com on your browsing app.

Step 3: This only happens once in a while, but sometimes CV is really slow for comments to process. Type your comment and hit the button that says . If your iPhone freezes up, continue repeatedly clicking the post button. The page will switch to "Internal Server Error 500". Press the back space and return to the thread. You'll notice that you have a lot of posts.

—Credit to @SuperNATEgames.

☝ This is the RIGHT way to post. No silly limit can keep YOU contained!
☝ This is the RIGHT way to post. No silly limit can keep YOU contained!

Hack #3) Change the way you tag people.

If you often tag your friends whenever you create a new thread, you've been doing it wrong. Most Viners are unaware that callout tags are broken if a thread creator inserts the tags on the Opening Post, meaning they won't work.

No Caption Provided

☝ This is the WRONG way to do it. None of the tagged users will receive the notification! To ensure that they get the message, insert the callouts in a SEPARATE post after the thread is made.

Hack #4) Upload images easier.

Do you find it to be a pain in the neck to upload images to Comic Vine? You've probably been doing it incorrectly.

Standalone Sticker WRONGThe WRONG way to upload images
  1. Locate desired image.
  2. Right Click on image.
  3. Save the image as a file in your computer.
  4. Click the Cutout tab and upload the image from your desktop.

The above method takes too many steps, wastes memory space, and is very time-consuming. Instead, try these simple alternatives to upload images easier:

Standalone Sticker RIGHTThe RIGHT way to upload images, Method 1
  1. Locate desired image or images.
  2. Copy the image(s) URL Address.
  3. Click the tab and paste the URL Address. No saving is needed.
No Caption Provided
Standalone Sticker RIGHTThe RIGHT way to upload images, Method 2
  1. Open the image in a new tab.
  2. Hold down cursor and drag the image into your comment box. Done.
No Caption Provided

Hack #5) Change your username.

If you thought the only way to change your username was through buying a membership— You were wrong. Little did people know there's a glitch in the system that easily allows you to change your username anytime you want! Here's how it is done:

The RIGHT way to change your username

Step 1: Hover your mouse over your username and go to Button Billing.

Step 2: Under the Profile Management section click "Change Email / Password".

Step 3: Fill in the Password confirmation spaces.

Step 4: Type your new username in the bottom.

Step 5: Make Account Changes. Your username has been changed!

No Caption Provided

HA! The Joke's On You! This glitch has since been patched and can no longer be exploited. Stop being cheap and go buy a Membership you potatosack. ~♡

Hack #6) Get more Wiki Points, easier.

Trying to earn more Wiki Points? Editing popular wiki pages such as "Character"-pages can be difficult and tiresome, and when you finally submit your work you get hardly any Wiki Points in return! Instead of trying to make nitpicky edits for large well-established wiki pages (Characters/Teams/Story Arcs/etc.)— avoid those and focus entirely on "Issue"-pages, "Episode"-pages, and other wiki pages that frequently become more abundant on a weekly basis.

For example, check out the >>wiki history<< of a Top Contributor @Cloudguy and you'll see that he made 278073 Wiki Points from "Issue/Episode"-page edits alone! That's because every little page he edits will reward him ≈200-500 points, and that adds up quick!

Adding in simple information such as the "characters", "creators", "teams", and etc. to a small wiki page can surmount to 300 Wiki Points or more, and no descriptive writing is necessary. Examples:

  • Cloudguy earned 339 points from this simple "Episode"-page.
  • Cloudguy earned 375 points from this simple "Issue"-page.
  • Cloudguy earned 579 points from this simple "Issue"-page.

The trick is to fill in as many blanks as possible every time a new "Issue" to a comic series (or new "Episode" for shows) is released. Rinse and repeat.

Hack #7) Properly deal with trolls.

The RIGHT way to deal with trolls

Step 1: Locate troll thread.

Step 2: Don't click it.

That's all for now, Folks!

So how many of these loopholes did you know about?

Are there any other loopholes I forgot to include? If so, tell me below and I might add it! ^_^

Sincerely,

The Geist Hierarchy

If you are not a Geist: GET OUT!!! This is a Geist-Only zone; everyone else is an intruder at this point.

ONCE AGAIN: IF YOU ARE NOT A GEIST, DO NOT PROCEED.

**CLASSIFIED INFORMATION**

Anarchist Group Ranks

The Geist Clan may be an anarchist group, but even anarchists have order in ranking!

[Lowest Rank]

Special Requirements:

  • Archbishop: 2000+ posts
  • Marauder: 1000+ posts // public respect // belligerence
  • Apprentice: 500+ posts // public respect
  • Knight: 100+ posts
  • Acolyte: 0 posts
    • *exceptions may be made

The Overlord of the Geist Clan

The ruler of the Geist Clan, and dictator of the empire as a whole. There is only one Overlord and there will only ever be one; this person is Jokergeist. Don't let his sadistic sense of humor, clown-like appearance, and rather... questionable methods of ruling fool you. His only goal is to create chaos. The Overlord of the Geists is recognized by the title "Joker"-geist, the Joker of which is known as the highest trump card in the deck. Emperor above all.

The Geist Council

A Councilor is a very powerful member of the empire, serving directly below the Dark Lord himself. The Geist Council as a whole govern the clan in a council consisting of three members including the Overlord (the other two being Pokergeist and Yokergeist). They are also known as the two "Masters". Councilors/Masters preserve order in the clan and are in charge while the Overlord is away. Respect Councilors at you're utter most level or you can possibly feel their wrath.

Geist Archbishop

Geist Archbishops are individuals who are known for their unparalleled abilities and have been promoted for such talents. They rule directly below the Council. Archbishops are individuals that have obtained the rank by mere prestige so they deserve everyone's respect. They possess the top leadership ability under the Lords of the Geist Clan and are possible candidates of being in the Council one day (ha ha, not likely).

Geist Marauder

This is a level of ranks beyond that of a Knight/Apprentice and underneath Archbishop. They command much respect as all should and are in their 2nd degree in what subject in "Geist Knight Academy" they pursue. Rather than specializing in leadership however a Marauder focuses primarily on WAR and can teach many Acolytes/Knights/Apprentices how to utilize weapons. Their skill should be considered before you engage one of them in a duel.

Geist Apprentice

Do not be confused as a Geist Apprentice -primary- rank is not one being taught exclusively by an Overord or Master. Apprentice is more that this person has for filled all the previous required ranks and needs to be the apprentice of the Geist Clan in general before choosing a pathway to follow down according to his/her skill choice. These members are discovering their capabilities to the fullest in Geist Knight Acadamy and will discover that this rank is their last mandatory rank before moving on to their choice of specialty. Only the highest of the highly-skilled members of the clan could possibly skip this rank.

Geist Knight

A Geist Knight is the 2nd rank climbing up the Geist Hierarchy and is required as a rank. A Knight is classified as a more experienced Acolyte needing less training/focus as they already have much experience in the "Geist Knight Academy" world. They are mature, respectful, and contribute to the Geist Clan.

Geist Acolyte

A low ranking individual learning the Geist ways and Geist philosophies. Acolytes, also known as "Geistlings", make up the largest faction of the Geist Clan, and carry out an important role as they are the future of the empire and create the clans foundation. Without Acolytes/Geistlings the clan has no empire. Never underestimate an Acolyte as they may secretly have the power to destroy even a Marauder. Acolytes are the first accepted rank for members coming into the Geist Clan and must be taken. Acolytes have no rank tags.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

**CLASSIFIED INFORMATION**

And now I present to you the great holy "Geist Hierarchy Pyramid"!!— our very own record of the current existing members of our clan (some undercover members shall not be included) and the rank of those individuals pinpointed at slots on the hierarchy triangle. It is organized decreasingly by rank: Overlord, Councilor, Archbishop, Marauder, Apprentice, Knight, Acolyte. The record will be updated as needed.

Respect Piedmon! (Incomplete)

No Caption Provided

Created by Apocalymon long before the DigiDestined arrived, Piedmon is the demonic leader of the four Dark Masters... and is easily the most-powerful of the tyrannical bunch. As a Mega-Level 'Virus' Digimon, he possesses powerful psychokinesis which compliments his sadistic sense of humor. He bears strong matchless powers, he is a master of deception and trickery, and when you encounter Piedmon— the only fate he might have in store for you is his curse.

Regard Chuumon's description of Piedmon during a "Digimon Analyzer" scan:

Respect Buggy the Clown!

WHO'RE YOU CALLING BIG RED NOSE!???
WHO'RE YOU CALLING BIG RED NOSE!???

One of the first main villains in One Piece, Buggy is a "flashy" pirate captain who dresses himself as a clown, loving to plunder from villages/destroy them and hunt for treasure. He is the captain to the Buggy Pirates and former apprentice to Gol D. Roger the legendary Pirate King himself, and has become one of the Royal Seven Warlords of the Sea (aka the "Shichibukai"). Buggy has consumed a Devil Fruit called Bara Bara no Mi, and this gave him the power to split his body into pieces.

If you don't already know, here's how his power works:

I.) Flashy Strength

No Caption Provided

The levitation effect of his Devil Fruit power allows Buggy to lift objects much heavier than he normally could, practically defying gravity. Physics are for losers.

  • Buggy lifts up a grown man, Boodle, into the air using one hand.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
  • Picks up another grown man with one hand, and throws him with great force a significant distance at Luffy.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
  • Effortlessly lifts up a Blugori—which is a giant blue gorilla, high into the air using his two floating hands, then slams it down into the floor. Normal gorillas in captivity can weigh as much as 270 kg (600 lbs).
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
  • Buggy manages to sustain the weight of BOTH Luffy and Jinbe while floating with the upper part of his body. Jinbe alone is a 9'8" tall giant Whale Shark Fishman!!!

II.) Flashy Speed

No Caption Provided
Description______________________________
  • Here Buggy is missing his legs. Yet, he displays impressive speed as he chases after a fleeing bird.....running on just his feet alone. This is essentially 1/3rd of his running speed with his legs at full-length!!
No Caption Provided

  • Buggy reacts to gunfire at point-blank.
No Caption Provided

  • A pack of vicious bloodthirsty Army Wolves pounce at Buggy, who has no problem dodging their attacks (despite the bitter cold). The wolves are powerful enough to overwhelm even the Hell Beasts of Level 2 in Impel Down.
No Caption Provided

  • Buggy hastily outruns a horde of Blugori, which are special guard units trained to catch fleeing convicts. They are also fast enough to kill fish swimming underwater.
No Caption Provided

  • During pursuit, Buggy avoids multiple axes swinging at him while he's running.
No Caption Provided

  • Tired of these Blugori yet? Watch how Buggy can pulsate his body structure, briskly splitting into chunks to escape the gorilla from hitting him.
No Caption Provided

  • He can do the same thing to escape being eaten alive by a Basilisk demon beast.
No Caption Provided

  • By using a set of wheels and a bomb for a motor, Buggy can reconfigure himself into becoming a small car.
No Caption Provided

  • In addition to becoming a car, Buggy can FLY at high speeds (as long as his feet are secured). He can also carry a passenger atop his back during flight.
No Caption Provided

III.) Flashy Durability

No Caption Provided

Due to his Devil Fruit power, Buggy is completely immune to slashing/cutting/cleaving attacks, as such attacks will simply slice him into pieces without harm. Any bladed weapons are useless against him. Besides that, Buggy's overall durability is pretty high too.

No Caption Provided
  • Buggy gets sliced to shreds by Dracule Mihawk's legendary sword "the Black Blade". His body reforms afterwards without any damage, and note that Mihawk possesses Haki.

  • Luffy gives Buggy a full-blown kick to the head, which surprisingly does not leave him knocked out.

  • Buggy endures a punch from Luffy that has enough force to break through TWO stone walls. And Buggy was in the middle! Ouch.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3
No Caption Provided
  • Buggy gets hit by a cannonball, but falls apart without any real injury.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
No Caption Provided
  • Luffy's "Gomu Gomu no Bazooka" launches Buggy into the air, sending him skyrocketing across a far distance until he crash-lands pummeling head-first into the ground....with minimal injury.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2
No Caption Provided
  • He survives being struck directly by a prodigious bolt of lightning. Buggy apparently has a considerable deal of electric resistance. (Later in that event, Buggy makes a comment that suggests he cannot die)
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4
No Caption Provided
  • Explosives won't bring him down either, considering that he survived an explosion from a redirected "Muggy Ball" bomb with hardly any resulting injuries.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

A few of Buggy's off-panel feats include:

  1. Survived all the battles with the Whitebeard Pirates and the extreme dangers of the Grand Line.
  2. During his own mini-series storyline, Buggy survived being eaten alive by a giant bird.
  3. Was tortured in the Impel Down prison and survived the Blazing Hell, which is a pool filled with boiling blood heated by a raging fire making it extremely hot.

IV.) Flashy Weaponry

No Caption Provided

Buggy seems to prefer bladed weapons, though he most favors the use of knives. He tends to hold one single knife at a time or four between the fingers of his hands, and can perform sleight-of-hand to store/draw them whenever necessary. Buggy carries an impressive amount of these types of weapons on his person at all times; some of which are kept hidden under his gloves or in his shoes.

2) Buggy Balls

Buggy is a master chemist who invented these red bombs engraved with his Jolly Roger. The "Special Buggy Cannonball" can create a devastating explosion when fired from a cannon, with enough power to destroy a town.

No Caption Provided
  • A single blast can clear an entire street comprised of buildings.

3) Muggy Balls

In addition, Buggy had developed a new miniature version of the Buggy Cannonball, compacting its mighty explosive power inside a weapon tiny enough to be concealed within his body.

  • Buggy fires a Muggy Ball from his shoe, blowing up the Minotaurus demon beast guard.

  • A Muggy Ball blows up a large group of guard subordinates, resulting in multiple deaths and casualties.

Bara Bara Cannon

"Chop-Chop Cannon"

VI.) Flashy Fights

Buggy defeats Roronoa Zoro.

This battle is a good display of Buggy's aptitude for deceiving his foes.

  • [0:57] Buggy allows Zoro to cut him into pieces, fooling him into a false victory.
  • [0:52] When Zoro turns around, Buggy launches a Bara Bara Cannon that stabs him from behind. He could have easily killed Zoro, but due to PIS Buggy just said "It was an o-kay victory!" and spared his life.

Buggy fights Monkey D. Luffy, ending in stalemate.

Notice that Buggy's fighting style is fashioned to misdirect his foes/predict their movements, allowing him to take offensive repercussions. This battle is also a good display of Buggy's reaction speed.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5Gallery image 6Gallery image 7
  • [0:22] Buggy opens the fight with his "Bara Bara Windmill" technique, but Luffy jumps to dodge the attack.
  • [0:27] Buggy is an astute quick-thinker during combat situations; he always strikes when the enemy is vulnerable—or in this case, when Luffy is helpless while in the air. He quickly takes advantage of the situation and unleashes a barrage of thrown knives at the airborne Luffy, whose stretchy-power allows him to dodge the attack that'd be otherwise impossible to dodge.
  • [0:43] Luffy counterattacks with his "Gomu Gomu no Pistol", but Buggy dodges the incoming punch with ease.
  • [0:46] Buggy notices that Luffy is left wide open, but before attacking Luffy launches himself into another punch— which Buggy also dodges. Luffy couldn't touch him.

Buggy duels Gaimon (while in his Chibi form).

This battle is a good display of Buggy's competence in H2H combat, especially without the use of weapons.

  • [0:21] At the opening second, Buggy quickly gains the upper hand by....well, grabbing Gaimon's hair with one hand to restrain him.
  • [0:26] Gaimon pulls out two revolvers and fires in succession, but Buggy dodges the shots at point-blank range.
  • [0:40] Before Gaimon can dish out more gunfire, Buggy launches a hand that restrains Gaimon's held revolver in place so he can no longer shoot. This tactic is very effective against gun-users.
  • [0:46] While Gaimon is preoccupied, Buggy lands an unexpected kick to his face. Gaimon also attempts an attack, but Buggy dodges using Bara Bara Emergency Escape.
  • [0:59] Buggy ends up on top of Gaimon punching him repeatedly, until being kicked away. Afterwards the two fighters resolve their conflict and become good friends/drinking buddies.

Buggy solos a bunch of Kumate Tribe warriors.

This battle is a good display of Buggy's formidable skill in hand-to-hand melee. He can even fight without his head, feet, nor hands!

  • [0:00] One of the Kumate warriors tries to swing at Buggy but he avoids the attack, ascending into the air to intimidate the tribe members.
  • [0:14] Buggy's lower half flashily kicks the opponent to the face.
  • [0:18] His special move "Bara Bara Kick" knocks two men back, smashing through the wall behind them.
  • [0:26] His special move "Bara Bara Punch" pounds a warrior to the ground, apparently killing him.
  • [0:32] His special move "Bara Bara Windmill" cuts up a dozen resisting fighters like scissors to paper.
  • [0:38] His special move "Bara Bara Festival" smashes a man's head through the wall.
  • [0:41] Buggy the Clown finishes off the remaining tribe warriors with a punch and another special move called "Bara Bara Carnival" wherein he clasped both hands together then slammed them down onto the opponent's neck.

Buggy engages in attack against Dracule Mihawk.

This battle is significant because Buggy stood up against one of the strongest Shikibukai without fear, and survived.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3
  • [0:27] Dracule Mihawk attacks Buggy by slicing him into hundreds of pieces. He is surprised after Buggy's body regenerates unharmed.
  • [0:38] Buggy becomes enraged and counterattacks Mihawk with a Muggy Ball, which is deflected back at Buggy. He survives the explosion.

VII.) Flashy Pirate Crew

Here are a few miscellaneous moments in One Piece wherein Buggy the Clown shows off his flashy greatness!

Respect Sweet Tooth the Clown!

Shut up and BLEED, you mother f*cker!!!
Shut up and BLEED, you mother f*cker!!!

Known as the most twisted character in Twisted Metal, Needles Kane is the very embodiment of hate and destruction on an epic scale—A serial killer who uses a ice cream truck and demented clown theme to perform mass homicide to the highest degree. He is truly evil, and thinks nothing of anything but the joy and desire of death and chaos.

Blackfield Asylum Patient Profile

No Caption Provided
  • Name: Needles Kane
  • Info: Male
  • Age: Unknown, Estimated between 30 to 40
  • Weight: Killed the medics before weight could be established
  • Height: 6 feet
  • Birthplace: Unknown

Disorder: Unspecified Psychotic disorder; Homicidal tendencies; insomnia.

Treatment: Warning: Meds have no effect; Lost cause.

Psychological Profile

Unfortunately we have never been able to obtain a satisfactory glance into the psyche of Needles Kane (herein referred to as “Sweet Tooth”). Attempts have indeed been made to analyze him, but results proved fatal as he killed our first analyst and critically injured the next one. The third was driven mad by his inability to come to a satisfying analysis and subsequently took his own life.

Patient History

Sweet Tooth was once Marcus Kane, a middle-aged man who lived with his wife and three children and worked as an ice cream man. However Marcus constantly felt a burning emptiness within him that eventually formed into a dark split personality, known as Needles. This other personality wore away at him until he finally snapped, carving his clown mask and letting the other personality take over to become Sweet Tooth. The first time he killed someone he didn't even flinch, doing so as skillfully as a trained surgeon and without regrets. After the first one, he quickly developed an insatiable thirst for blood; it was obvious that he had found his calling in life. Sometimes his victims were meticulously hunted down, but most were randomly chosen and just unlucky to have crossed his path. When he was finally caught after his abundant murders, he was to be executed via electric chair usage. The Preacher cursed Needles Kane, burdening him forever with the flames of Hell, as well as enhancing his physical abilities.

WARNING: Sweet Tooth can breath fire. Do not approach.

II.) Sweet Vehicles

No Caption Provided

1) "Sweet Tooth" the Ice Cream Truck

Needles Kane has always driven an armored ice cream truck that can be declared as a one man army in a world war. "Sweet Tooth" is an old-fashioned ice cream truck (Chevrolet Step Van) with pink polka dots patterning its white-painted chassis, and a trademark macabre clown head atop the roof for decoration. Its appearance makes it easy to lure his most innocent victims. And more often than not, the freezer is used to store other 'items' besides frozen treats. The ice cream truck favors its power/armor of a tank rather than speed/handling.

1.5) "Sweet Toothimus Prime"

The secondary special weapon is for Sweet Tooth the Ice Cream Truck to transform into a bipedal mecha robot AKA "Sweet Bot". It has the abilities to fly, slam down on the ground to send out a shockwave, and throw its clown head like a grenade. This vehicle also has incredible ramming power when it turbo-charges into opponents with the 'Sixaxis Slam', being able to even inflict heavy ram damage on Darkside. Its extra mass and heightened stats are due to it being a transforming mecha.

2) "Dark Tooth"

Dark Tooth is basically an enlarged and more heavily-armored Sweet Tooth. It is a massive ice cream truck (the size of a large house), at least 6 times the size of Sweet Tooth, and can destroy full-healthy small cars by simply running them over. The monster truck's image is black with pink polka dots, and includes a massive demonic-looking clown head in Sweet Tooth's likeness. This is essentially a large opening-and-closing 'mouth' at the front of the truck, which is Dark Tooth's special weapon.

Being given the name Tower Tooth, it is the tallest vehicle of all the Twisted Metal series.

No Caption Provided
No Caption Provided

"The Clowns" is the name of a gang led by Sweet Tooth. They follow Sweet Tooth with a cult-like devotion, going so far as to build a giant armed circus tent on wheels in his honor. It is unknown how Sweet Tooth was able to conjure this group of numerous followers. However, as stated by Calypso, they were each dedicated to serving Sweet Tooth, as they believed he was a 'god' and 'king'.

The Carnival of Carnage

Freakshow Carnival on Wheels
Freakshow Carnival on Wheels

Sweet Tooth's "Carnival of Carnage" is a massive memorial built in his honor; When Needles Kane died, the Clowns became obsessed with preserving his memory of him alive and believed he would rise, stronger and madder than before. Together they built a thematically carnivalesque and brutal mobile fortress, outfitted with various advanced technologies (including sophisticated weapons, dangerous self-supporting traps, and an electric force field).

Click on the links below☟ to navigate through the video.

#Carnival SectionsStart TimeDescription

1

The Underbelly

[0:00]The underside of the fortress is a large self-defense system which consists of an electric cage, multiple machine gun turrets, and flamethrowers. Many Clowns patrol the underbelly of the Carnival in their own personal Sweet Tooth vehicles, guarding the largely open areas of the underbelly.

2

The Pinball Chamber

[0:31]Inside of Sweet Tooth's Carnival of Carnage is a huge room which resembles the inside of a pinball machine, complete with giant bumpers, colorful lights, and large, explosive pinballs. Protected Clowns armed with chainsaws are running around.

3

The Obstacle Course

[1:13]Surrounding the Carnival and leading to the very top of the structure is a line of twisting halfpipes, which are protected by numerous traps (including over-sized maces, flame-spewing exhaust pipes, giant blade-edged fans, and titanic axes).

4

Sweet-in-the-Box

[1:53]The Carnival has its own horrific clown head adorned on top of it (modeled after Sweet Tooth), which is the primary control room. The mechanical head can release a volley of large fireballs from its mouth and fire a barrage of missiles from a cannon within its nose. It also has the assistance of an endless horde of Clown-piloted Sweet Bots, equipped with flight capabilities and time-delayed self-destruct sequences.

Respect Zombozo the Clown!

If you love clowns, this is the place to be. You're gonna die laughing. That's a Zombozo guarantee!
If you love clowns, this is the place to be. You're gonna die laughing. That's a Zombozo guarantee!

Zombozo is the ringmaster supervillain of Belltown, who has been a thorn in the butt of Ben 10 since his early years as a hero. He is a cruel and creepy clown mastermind with a dark sense of humor that borders on more sadistic and psychopathic behavior. Whether Zombozo is eating brains or selling them instead, this is one crazy zombie clown you don't want to mess with.

I.) Strength

No Caption Provided
  • Zombozo is able to wield a giant hammer, putting his strength around Harley Quinn's level.
No Caption Provided
  • With a single strike, Zombozo knocks Wildmutt backwards 9 feet.
No Caption Provided

Stop! It's MATH TIME:

No Caption Provided
  • Wildmutt is the size of a car, weighing approximately 750 pounds. Have you ever punched a car before?
  • Due to calculations, it should be noted that Zombozo can punch 5x harder than an average man.

Proof: Punch Force = 1/2 (mass) x (velocity)²

Calculations

No Caption Provided

Mass = 750 lbs

Velocity (meters/second)

  • Wildmutt traveled a distance of 0.5 meters per frame.
  • The GIF recorded the animation at 30 frames per second.
  • 0.5 x 30 = 15. This is the velocity Wildmutt traveled in meters per second.

1/2 (750) x (15)² = 84,375 pounds of force

Therefore: Zombozo's average Punch Force 84,375 lbs.

II.) Speed n' Agility

No Caption Provided

Zombozo is inhumanly quick and agile, which is strange for his weight and egg-shape.

  • Outruns Ben 10 and friends while dodging energy blasts from Gwen Tennyson, then leaps off the rooftop and dives into a skyscraper window.
No Caption Provided
  • Escapes his pursuers by jumping out of the building, then maniacally runs down the street whilst evading passing cars.
No Caption Provided
  • Does a headspin flip kick, knocking away Kevin Levin in steel form (that's heavy!)
No Caption Provided

III.) Superpowers

No Caption Provided

• Extending Arm

Zombozo can stretch his arms very far, like a slinky toy.

No Caption Provided

• Teleportation

Zombozo is able to teleport in an explosion of smoke and confetti.

No Caption Provided

• Illusion Control

Zombozo could terrorize people with frightening images and vivid illusions.

IV.) Bag o' Tricks

No Caption Provided

Zombozo has an ability called "bottomless satchel", which seemingly allows him to pull hammers, explosives, and toys out of nowhere. This is done by reaching into a coat pocket and pulling out something that's bigger then the pocket itself.

Equipment_______________________________________________________________
  • Giant Hammer

A giant oversized wooden mallet. Nobody wants to be caught on the receiving end.

No Caption Provided

  • Acid Seltzer Bottle

A squirt bottle that sprays highly-corrosive acid strong enough to melt a tree.

  • Juggling Pins

What? They're juggling pins (and a random chicken).

  • Chattering Teeth Cannon

Zombozo invented this special cannon that launches toy teeth that infect people with a 'zombie-clown' virus upon biting them. The teeth will follow you as they're seemingly alive.

  • Toy Plane

A special fun-sized airplane that Zombozo uses for airborne travel or escape.

No Caption Provided

  • Bombs

Zombozo keeps these in his coat pocket.

....and his most impressive trick of all:

V.) Feats of Evil

No Caption Provided
  • In The More Things Change, Zombozo stole a brain from Bellwood's Brain Bank—a bizarre crime that only a psychopathic clown would commit.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3
  • In Last Laugh, Zombozo staged a circus show to lure the townspeople inside, then used a machine called the "Psyclown" to drain everyone's happiness and life energy while they're laughing. This left the entire town depleted and lifeless while his Circus Freak Trio robbed the city.
  • In Hit 'Em Where They Live, Zombozo organized a series of attacks against Ben Tennyson's family, acting as the 'Ringmaster' mastermind behind the operation. He then kidnapped Ben's mother Sandra and used her as a hostage to lure Ben, Gwen and Kevin into his hideout for an ambush. While his minions attacked, Zombozo made preparations to murder Sandra in a slow and cruel way.
  • In Something Zombozo This Way Comes, an imprisoned Zombozo escaped from Plumbers Headquarters and locked up Plumber Jerry in his place, then summoned the Circus Freak Trio to feed on people's fears. Zombozo invented a special "chattering teeth cannon" which launches toy teeth that infect people with a 'zombie-clown' virus upon biting them. After instituting a massive circus show, Zombozo transforms the entire city of Belltown into zombie clowns!

Harley Quinn = Miley Cyrus!?

Remember back when you were a little girl, and your favorite TV show was Hannah Montana? You dressed in her glam girl style, you shopped for her merchandise, and you wanted to dye your hair blonde. You dreamed of becoming a Disney Star, just like your idol Miley Cyrus.

Remember when your favorite character was Harley Quinn? You'd watch the Batman animated series with so much admiration for Harley—intrigued by her unique and spunky character. You probably tried to imitate her voice, and wear black lipstick, and dye your hair blonde just because she did.

Both Harley and Miley dominated childhoods nationwide, acting as HUGE influential role-models for young girls.

No Caption Provided

...And then this happened.

No Caption Provided

Harley and Miley went freaky. Maybe a bit too freaky...in a very similar way.

Exhibit A

No Caption Provided

Here we see Miley and Harley in their early stages of becoming wenches. On the left side is Miley Cyrus lifting up her shirt by her mouth, displaying her bare stomach for the camera. To the right is Harley Quinn teasing us with daisy dukes and a revealing top.

Exhibit B

No Caption Provided

Whoa whoa! What's going on here? Yes, that is Miley Cyrus making contact with the man-parts of Robin Thicke, a 36-year-old father of one. On the other side we have Harley Quinn making contact with the man-parts of Floyd Lawton, known to most as Deadshot.

Exhibit C

No Caption Provided

Mmmmm.....restless tongue syndrome. Here we witness Miley Cyrus suggestively licking an iron mallet. While on the right side Harley Quinn suggestively licks Deadshot's masked face. These girls apparently like the taste of metal surfaces.

See the resemblance?

They're basically the same person. Give Miley Cryus some clown make-up, and she'd be a flawless Harley Quinn. And underneath Harley Quinn's clown guise is a messed-up soul, just like Miley Cyrus.

Similarities
