Best random dream of recent memory  
Q: What do you get when you have friends over playing the Four Swords Gamecube game and you play a few rounds of Dynasty Warriors 4 before going to bed?

A: Xiahou Dun beating the crap out of Tingle WWE-style.

If you don't have any idea as to what I'm talking about: Tingle is a bizarre character who is sort of like an elf who floats around on a balloon. In the Four Swords game, he's irritating because he sounds like a short bus escapee and tries to steal your schwag. Xiahou Dun is an ancient Chinese general who looks sort of like a pirate and kicks all kinds of ass. I was playing as him last night in an attempt to make sense of his funky multilayered coat, but it didn't really help because it looks like a normal greatcoat in the game. Guh. I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually...

Dude, the only Dynasty Warriors character Tingle might be able to beat is Lu Xun, and even then Tingle would probably fall prey to the flaming marshmallow attack.

Heh, I can still remember the details of the dream just because it was so fricking funny. The scene took place on a street. Xiahou Dun picked up a pole of some sort and threw it at Tingle's balloon, popping it. Tingle went up into a balcony of an apartment with a bunch of other little people, but it wasn't that far off the ground, so Xiahou Dun grabbed him and started beating him around. And that was it. Still amusing, though.

If I had been doing Meng Huo research before sleepytime, perhaps I would have seen some Tingle pancakes. Can we say "bodyslam"? =P

Tingle Tingle Kooloh-Limpah!!
He's Hylian (explaining his elfish ears) and desires, above all things, to become a fairy. In Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, the Oracle series, and Four Swords, he believes Link is a fairy due to his green woodsy clothes. For all his annoyances, he's pretty damn good with maps...

Re: Tingle Tingle Kooloh-Limpah!!
Tingle was fun in Majora's Mask because you had to look for him floating around and pop his balloon before you could even talk to him. And yeah, he really isn't that bad (just weird) when he actually provides things that help you. I especially like his seemingly-useless map in Wind Waker that's anything but. =P
