[edit] Gaspeau and Frotzer

I think it should be mentioned that the behavior of Gaspeau and Frotzer mimmics the behavior of the green koopa troopa and red koopa troopa in SMB, respectively. In that the former keeps going without stopping, and the latter goes back and forth over an area. --Stux 00:07, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

Is it limited to the Koopa? I smell a TTOTOT... or however you abbreviate that. - Joshua 00:52, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
There are hundreds of instances of this. And, it's pronounced TTAOT, Joshua. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 01:18, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
Isn't it TTATOT? This, that, and the other thing. — It's dot com 01:35, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
I thought that we took out the the. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 01:37, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
Hmm. I usually see it with the the. — It's dot com
I think I saw TTAOT in STUFF a couple of times. More to the point, side scrollers had many variations of enemies that you had to jump over and/or kill. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 01:48, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
Also on point, don't the different colored Shyguys in SMB2 behave the same way? — It's dot com 01:50, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
I thought that the colors were randomly generated. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 02:16, 29 October 2005 (UTC)
LOL whether TTOTOT or TTATOT or TTAOT ... I've definitely opened a can of worms! ;) As for SBM2, I don't remember it much... it was all a dream to me ;) -- so I don't know if the colors were randomly generated or not. I'd have to crack open my old Nintendo Powers and compare the behavior of the other enemies, but I don't have access to those right now. It's possible that the other SMB's and games in general emulate this behavior. --Stux 03:24, 29 October 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Closed STUFF

[edit] Flip! Jump! Spin! Sonic?

Stinkoman's flipping as he jumps may be a reference to Sonic The Hedgehog's Spin Jump.

VERDICT: This item was unanimously declined, 13–0. The votes and arguments have been moved to HRWiki:STUFF/Archive/Stinkoman 20X6 Real-World References.

[edit] Zero Wing

Am I the only one who noticed a similarity between level 8 and zero wing (The All Your Base game)?

No. I noticed. The Cutscene before level -0 has Stinkoman say "What happens?" which is from the cutscene for Zero Wing (What happen? Somebody set us up the bomb!)

[edit] Jaro's Inspiration

Image:Red Eye.PNG
Look at this. Now look at Jaro. See anything resembling? --Wooxa 08:30, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Not really. But Sonic-related, I think the "Pink Cloud Zone" is also a reference to the levels from the Sonic games (i.e., Green Hill Zone, Aquatic Ruin Zone, and Ice Cap Zone from Sonic 1, 2, and 3, respectively). but, a buttdanceNeox ONION BUBS!YOU WILL RESPECT MAH AUTHORI-TAH!!!

[edit] Stlunko

I attempted to and that stlunko looks like a 1978 cylon, but it got deleted. He's got the head crest, red visor eye andd mouth ridge thing, come on!

The reason I removed it was because the head of Stlunko is pretty generic to me. There's hundreds of different robots with those eyes/mouth ect., and as a rule of thumb, if it could refer to many things, it's not referring to anything at all. On the other hand, Battlestar Galactica is very popular and there is some similarity, but I'm not sure if it's enough to call it a reference. What does everyone else think? – The Chort 21:03, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
Name a second robot with one of those visors with that moving red dot. And the mouth and head crest.
If you won't answer me, don't delete the information.
I was currently offline when you answered. Well, I thought about this last night and realised that most of the "references" on this article contain words such as "looks similar" and "may be a reference", but with no actual proof that TBC were even thinking of that game/boss ect. And yes, I acknowledge that there is does seem to be some similarity between Stlunko and the Cylons. However, I'm not the only one who doesn't think there's a direct reference here; Sam the Man removed the same fact, claiming that it was This, That and The Other Thing. According to the glossary, this rule is "applicable when a reference in a toon could refer to one of many similar things. The rule of thumb is that if it could apply to several things, it probably refers to nothing in particular." This is the reason why I reverted your edit. At the very least, it could just be a coincidence. – The Chort 17:54, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
Additionally, some of the other Stinkoman 20X6 Enemies have the same features as Stlunko. Jaro has a visor with a moving dot. Greggo and Chorch both have mouths similar to Stlunko's, as so many of the robots from Futurama. Besides, it's unlikey that it's a reference to Battlestar Galactica since it doesn't fit into the theme of video games or Japanese references. Battlestar Galactica is neither a video game nor Japanese. – The Chort 18:48, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Pulseman Refrence?

Is it just me, or does Stlunko reminds me of the Sega Genesis game Pulseman's last boss. The last boss of that game was the main antagonist as a giant polygonal version of his head aided by two floating polygonal hands. As I remember, the head did nothing, while the hands attacked. I think the game was only released in Japan.

[edit] Georgia Natural Gas

Calling Lundsford a reference to the symbol and/or mascot of Georgia Natural Gas feels like quite a stretch to me. They are both blue flames, yes, but that is just what a natural gas flame looks like. The shades of blue are totally different, and Lundsford is a gas stove while the symbol and mascot are not. The shape of the mascot's flame is somewhat similar, but it's simply a generic "flame" shape and without the distinctive face I see no connection. -- Bleu Ninja 22:03, 16 August 2021 (UTC)

I agree. The fact that the symbol is seen on billboards around the Brothers Chaps' area (according to the article) gives it some credence, but the connection still feels like speculation, and probably not worth noting. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:47, 16 August 2021 (UTC)
