    motu NEEDS an elephant!

    Yeah, yeah, I know we have Snout Spout, but he's most likely a dude in an elephant helmet, or a robot elephant, or something. And I know there may have been some anthro-elephant character that never made it past concept stages.

    But I'm saying MOTU needs a legit elephant beast. It doesn't have to be a modern "earth elpehant." It can be red or blue; it can have four tusks; it can be wooly; whatever. Point being elephants are awesome.

    Hannibal? Elephants. Sauron? Elephants. Xerxes? Elephants.

    But mostly, this:

    Everyone loves elephants! Forget all the photos people have of Vikor on a horse. Put that He-Man of the North on a Preternian Wooly Mammoth! I love elephants and I could see this as a really cool addition.

    A giant Eternian elephant with funky colors or extra limbs/tusks/eyeballs/whatever would be rad.

    I friggin' LOVE that pic! It's hilarious! I mean, what the heck is going on there?

    Skeletor: "Look He-Man, I found elephants. ELEPHANTS!!"

    He-Man: "You diabolical fiend!"

    Skeletor: "I know, right? I'm totally gona trample you!"

    He-Man: "CRAP! I forgot Battle Cat! Knew I shouldn't have passed that catnip forrest. Oh well, this random lion will do."

    Lion: "DUDE. What are you---HEY!"

    Skeletor: "TO BATTLE! Someone better be around to paint this!"

    Frazetta, hiding in the brush: "YES! Gettin' paid."

    *ahem* but yes, an elephant of some sort would be nice.

    I think it's even more ridiculous than that--I'm pretty sure that's Kilimanjaro in the background, so He-man and Skelly are actually IN Africa.

    That pic is my desktop wallpaper at work. I love it. Sure, bring on the elephants!

    An Elephant for Snout Spout to would be epic! It would make up the Eternian Fire Department

    Tuskador is a character from the New Adventures of He-Man:



    There's also a Meteorb called Tuskor who resembles a mammoth (a really tiny one though):

    ^ Thanks, Tallstar. The three tusks are kinda gross, but it just goes to show--between the Morem poster, and Filmation, elephants on Eternia are canon.

    BTW, of all the silly Filmation eps I've seen, that really takes the cake as the DUMBEST.

    Having said all that, As far as I'm concerned, Snout Spout is good enough for me. It's amazing that people want dinosaurs and elephants, but MOTU hardly has any dragons, and that seems far more appropriate that regular animals.

    And that Pic of Skeletor riding elephants looks kinda silly. Why are He-Man and Skelly near Mount Kilamanjaro?

    (Man, I miss 200X )

    200X Power Sword, 200X Toon, 200X Continuity.... Yeah, it's all about 200X!!

    1) Not a single person said they wanted a circus elephant. Tallstar was just using the video to illustrate that there have been elephants in MOTU, and in fact the only person mentioning that elephant was me saying that it looked creepy.

    2) If you think elephants don't fit into fantasy then you must not be familiar with Lord of the Rings, 300, or Conan.

    3) If you don't think "regular" animals like elephants aren't appropriate for MOTU, then you must hate Battlecat, Battle Lion, Panthor, Gygor, Zoar...

    4) I bleed 200X. Don't try to pull 200X cred on me, son.

    He's a good guy. The tusks are just part of his armour; without it he looks completely human.
