Octotektite- Octorok and Tektite- foes from the Legend of Zelda game series
Octoroks are round and hard shelled or sometimes jellyfish-like creatures that have a round snout with which to shoot rocks. They have appeared in every Zelda game in the series. In order to defeat them, Link must target them and put up his shield to deflect the rock back at it.
Tektites are four legged, one eyed, jumping spider-like creatures. They have hard exoskeletons and can jump on the surface of water as well as land. A vertical sword slash usually does away with these critters quickly.
I didn't look these up.. I already knew this information.. am I a nerg or what? (nerg is a nerd-geek)
my profile photog is my concept of an octotektite.
I think we've had this discussion a long time ago, but I don't mind repeating. I'm the Gaelic Thistlefish which is a combination of part of my heritage (Gaelic), the flower of Scotland (thistle) and the Celtic horoscope (Salmon for August). But here's what a true Gaelic Thistlefish is:
The Gaelic Thistlefish is a plaid Scottish fish, resembling a salmon, but with varying plaid designs and sharp Velcro-like ‘barbs.’ When caught, the immature thistlefish can be hung from any nappy fabric as a trophy. Wise and knowledgeable, the thistlefish is a visionary. They are also tasty with tartar sauce which brings out the Tartan flavor.
The mature thistlefish loses the barbs and replaces them with long reed-like protrusions and a bloated plaid belly. They are often mistaken for bagpipes, but this is far from the truth as they are very difficult to play, producing only a loud, raspy, screeching noise. It is rumored that all bagpipes are in actuality Gaelic thistlefish.
I'll post mine again too. I am a Land Shark. The first known sighting was on "Saturday Night Live" in the 70's when "Jaws" was the phenom. The Land Shark is considered the cleverest of all sharks. Unlike the great white shark, which tends to inhabit the waters and harbors of recreational beach areas, the Land Shark may strike at any place, anytime.
Most people think I'm pretty quiet and shy, but those who are close enough to really know and observe me know that I'm a silent and clever prankster. So watch out when someone knocks at the door...it just might be a Land Shark. Here's the classic skit if you've never seen the Land Shark in action.
Salerbatis -- Pronunciation: \sā-lər-bā-tis\
Etymology: Latin Salerbatis is a Latin term for what is commonly known as a Siren. Directly translated it means "sailor bait".
Sirens lure sailors to their deaths by distracting them with enchanting songs until the poor fellows crash their ships into the rocks. I like to think that I have a voice that could sink a thousand ships. (you can interpret the last sentence however you like...)
