Am I the only person who's first instinct upon reading the dependency mythic flaw was, "Holy crap, Popeye is a mythic character?!"

Clearly he refrains from spinach to be "one of us mortals" until he absolutely needs the energy boost!

"I yam what I yam."

Awesome, just awesome....
HOLY COW!
My mind was just blown!
Goofy is actually a mythic character too. He just needs to eat special peanuts that awaken his abilities and turn him into super Goofy.


So we can Pathfinderize the Kingdom Hearts games now?!?!?

So does this now make "Popeye" a gaming term now?

Taldor

Yes. Popeye that!

Well, a quick reskin of the Soulknife (from Dreamscarred Press) could make a passable Keybearer, I would think.


Heck yes it would, Chris. Specifically with the Gifted Blade archetype (though the power list might need tweaking). As the primary designer of the DSP soulknife, the thought crossed my mind a LONG time ago, I assure you.

As a major Kingdom Hearts fan, I approve that my silly Popeye thread got gloriously derailed into a Kingdom Hearts conversation.

I haven't played any of the games since Kingdom Hearts 2, though. I don't have a PSP. :(

Derail: You can download a free emulator for PSP for your PC. It is pretty good. End Derail.


Heh my bad, but cheers to KH!

Popeye is a sleeping god and this world is his dream. You can tell this because he always has one eye shut. This is to signify that he's asleep. He changes reality as it was a dream through the use of his hand. Every punch and strike has transformative properties. He punched a grown man and turned him into a baby, he punched a robot and turned it into a car, he turned night into day by punching the moon and then turned day to night by punching the sun. He once punch the invasion force of a violent martian society and transformed them all into fun loving circus goers. And infamously he punched a tiger and turned it into a LEOPARD skin coat. Woe betide us all if he ever opens his other eye then we shall face the wraith a fully awakened deity.


Liking your post as hard as I can Painful!!!


Ia! Ia! Gyaaah hyuk hyuk hyuk hyuk hyuk!


Yep, Popeye was one of my first thoughts on a character with such a flaw. Then I thought some more and I couldn't actually think of anyone else (I recalled something about Norse myth where magic requires someone else's semen, but I'm not sure how well I'm remembering that)

That was exactly what I thought. Also, the theme song was playing in my head.

Most probably don't call attention to that dependency. Think about Michael Westin from Burn Notice and his yogurt. Or Deadpool and chimichangas. Superman and the light from our sun. Lois Lane and fresh-squeezed OJ. It's got levels man.

I don't remember that one, but I do recall a Japanese anime where a sorceress needed to recharge her powers in the middle of a battle. A male warrior ally took a big risk to help her out....
