Hello, everyone, I'm back for another theory. This one is going to cover a lot on the subject of Bulborbs, so excuse me if this gets a little hard to follow at points.
The central piece to this theory is that Bulborbs, though not insects, bear some interesting connections to the real-world order Hymenoptera. This order includes specialized insects like bees and ants, all with nests of some sort and a "queen" that produces all of the colony's offspring. Sound familier? Empress Bulblax resides underground in a hollowed-out den and produces a steady stream of Bulborb Larva. So, Empress Bulblax is the equivalent of a queen bee of a honeybee colony, but what does that mean? We can draw a few interesting things from this.
1. The Empress Bulblax mu…Read more >
Now we've said a lot about things to improve for the work day, but I came across something that has had little mention. It falls within the category of grammatical fixes; we really need to keep the point of view in articles constant. Fortunately, there are no idiots putting first-person speaking anywhere, but we have an ugly mix of second and third-person bits here and there -- in some places they are only a sentence or two apart. In order to sound as formal, unbiased, and informative as possible, we need to move towards using third person in all places, with the exception of extensive boss strategies multiple paragraphs long, as it's acceptable and common for a guide or a set of instructions to speak to the reader. It makes them easier to…Read more >
Hello everyone! I'm taking a break from Arachnorb theories for now... mostly because I really don't have much left to say about them. So here's something on a creature that I just love to hate, the Swooping Snitchbug.
How do you learn the anatomy of a Snitchbug? Well, you could look into the code, I guess. But we haven't time for that. Let's take a quick look at it's body.
The two parts of it's body that are put to use (aside from sensory cells) are its antennae, for flying, and its arms, for grabbing and throwing.
In all three games, the bug uses its antennae for one purpose -- flying. Boring, no?
In Pikmin and Pikmin 2, the Snitchbug uses its arms to grab Pikmin and Pikmin only. In Pikmin 3, however, it may also pick up and throw the captain…Read more >
Hello, anyone and everyone interested in our favorite fictitious false-spiders!
It's been a while, but I came across an interesting athropod that may explain Arachnorbs a bit better than I have been doing.
While creating my Mitite theories, I was under the assumption that the Arachnorbs were all in some way related to harvestmen, or the Daddy Long Legs, as they are better known. I mainly did this because of the names; it's just too easy to draw the connection. Despite this, however, there is little about the Arachnorbs that is very similar to the real-world harvestmen, aside from their long legs, of course. I made a brief mention about the secretions, too, but that is of little importance in the grand scheme.
So what does the Beady Long Legs …Read more >
Last time, I discussed the possibility that the Raging Long Legs is in fact female. After a decent amount of additional research on harvestmen, or daddy long legs, I have found some interesting facts that bring about two theories regarding the creature and its realtion with Mitites.
Theory #1: This goes along with what I discussed in my last post; the Raging Long Legs is the victim of the sexual parasitism by the Mitites because as Olimar states, they lay their eggs in the eggs of a female host. I found more evidence to support this and that is the fact that harvestmen and mites are known to share a parasitic relationship, the symbiont, in this case being the mites. Nothing too new here, just cement for what has already been dis…Read more >
