This may or may not be true depending on the definition of literally any of these things at all. I honestly don't know, though, so it remains unknown until I'm (re?)educated on terminology!

Tomax and Xamot were the evil twin brothers from the 80s G.I. Joe cartoon. Tictacslion is your hypothetical minty twin from 1) the Trek Mirror Universe, b) an unrealized reality, and/or π) Captain Yesterday's list of aliases.

A character in Shadow of the Colossus is called Dormin. I felt there ought to be a secret there. One day, I figured it out!!! ... only to forget it. I tried to find a relationship to the Dorm root, sleep, but no. Was it a bad R/L translation, possibly connected to dolmen?
Figuring it out again: It's Nimrod backward.

Eh wanna hear a fun fact docs?

The name Nimrod refers to a great biblical hunter. Bugs (the bunny) was using it sarcastically but people thought it meant idiot so there you have it. The nimrod effect.

Oh, I was aware. :)

It always annoys me when I don't realize a word spells something backward. And the reason I sought to find this one was likely that I felt Dormin was too cute for the character. Note that sleep, dolmen and hunter fit more or less perfectly.

One of the Nimrod's I know is a swedish transplant and the other is a friend's son who was named after the Green Day album.

Kermit is a friend from high school's little brother who was named that because his mom was a bar whore and ran out of other names that began with K by the time she had him.

That Kermit does not have as cheery a story as the one I knew.

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear.
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair.

Because as a bear he has fur, not hair.

Am I the only person who took apart the twins and rearranged their bits such that they were no longer mirror images of each other?

I wasn't much of a G.I. Joe fan, but when I accidentally broke my Baroness's right arm off, I bought a Cobra B.A.T. and put both it's arms on her. Her new left arm could swap out for a claw and laser gun, making her a much bigger badass. (Even 5-6 yro me thought Destro was a doofus.)

Edit: An inquisitive 5-6 yro with a small set of good screwdrivers will take apart everything she can get her hands on. I still owe my Mom a replacement electric carving knife.

My mom once made the mistake of telling me that my uncles knee didnt work right because it had a screw in it.

My aunt didn't even know she had that screwdriver...mom thought I brought it with me.

I was stopped in time. Mostly.

The Arthropoids in Mortasheen are based on The Fly, but with a wide variety of different types of bugs. I'm surprised it took me months to realize that.

Now I only saw it a week ago, but the aquaman parallels with king Arthur were pretty strong. I just noticed what that aqumans first name is...

Nimrod is also in Dante's Inferno (the book not the game), where he is portrayed as a giant. That might be why they named a colossus that.
