Mini appearances in canon
Tue Oct 9, 2018 9:22am

The Ghostbusters Master System game misspelled Gozer as Gorza. Can you think of other canonical minis?

    • I can't really think of any, but thanks for making my day!twistedwindowpane, Sun Oct 14 8:22pm
      Hehe, I was into Ghostbusters for a while (the original, though the reboot wasn't yet a thing when I started), and my favorite character was Gozer, because up until recently I've always gravitated... more

      In a journal in Riven , Gehn misspelled "wahrk" as "whark". Don't know what an Agatha Christie mini would be, but a copy of Death Comes as the End spelled "Imhotep" (the father's name) as "Imhtep"... more
      • I think they should be mini-corpses. (nm)Snowblaze, Sat Oct 13 8:45am

          • I suppose it is, but...Snowblaze , Sun Oct 14 3:01am
            Thatís about the only thing I could think of that connects almost all of the books. There arenít any monsters or anything, so I donít know what else it would be.
            • A mini-Grey Cell?Huinesoron, Sun Oct 14 9:37am
              Only more of a really big Grey Cell. You can buy some really adorable plushie cells, I'm sure there's a cute neuron out there. hS
              • That made me grin.Snowblaze , Sun Oct 14 9:59am
                I suppose it makes sense for a mini of something thatís already little to be big. Maybe Average-Sized Grey Cells? Or would that mean average by grey cell standards - still little? Not really sure it... more

                  Inarguably, all of Christie's heroes make extensive use of their brains. Arguably, ze little grey cells are also the prime antagonist: specifically, when they're /not/ doing their job and putting the ... more

                    at the Agatha Christie OFU. Their schemes will never last ten seconds without the grey cells figuring them out and thwarting them in the most ironic way possible. ...then again, thatís more or less... more

                      • I couldnít write it either.Snowblaze , Tue Oct 16 3:05am
                        My canonical knowledge is nowhere near good enough: I havenít read all the books and those that I have I got from the library.

        Have you had time to look at my Permission doc yet? I emailed it last week. Sorry if Iím being too impatient: Iím new to being beta-read so I donít know how long it usually takes.

      The (in)famous Bakshi LotR movie referred to Saruman as Aruman about half the time. Apparently they were concerned people would confuse the two S-villains... but that doesn't explain why they only... more

          A deliberate nickname is one thing - I don't think we have a mini-Balrog named Leggy, for instance. But getting the name wrong because you misheard or misread it is a classic way to create a mini.... more
