Fungus, Fungus, I recognize him. Where do I recognize him from?

May I direct your attention to page 76?

Ah, yes, that's where it was! It appears he's going to Plan B! I sense the return of Thrive soon...

Now all that team needs is Boss Birdo.

Oh wait! He's DEAD. ~grumblegrumble~

Unless of course Birdo neck-muscles are superdense in order to better facilitate the regurgitation and expectoration of eggs at high velocity..... In which case he could have been just stunned or faking it after he realized he wasn't dead.

I don't know... I think that he's wearing a polka dot ski mask. Or something like it.

the_unchosen_one 28th Jan 2012, 2:31 AM edit delete reply
@Infamous Nefarious - Some crocodiles (or alligators) have the ability to slow their heart rate to almost nothing, if there's a danger of suffocating. To me at least, Birdo's look slightly reptilian, so they might share this ability

@tutter - the "polka dot ski mask" is a "toad mask". Just like Go's bandana shows he's a Toad, the mask shows Fungus is a Toad... Unless... It's a... DISGUISE?!

That WOULD be pretty timely as well as cool. I hope someone out there is taking notes.

hey you know what remember in paper mario the koopa bros. dressed up/shift shaped into toads to block the way into pleasant path?

Mr. Mysterious Mask-Guy is back! :D He seems rather unsure of himself. Potential ally or underconfident villain?
the_unchosen_one 26th Jan 2012, 11:05 PM edit delete reply
Maybe he just has a bit of a stutter. I know people like that

My guess is that he is Go's son...FROM THE FUTURE! (*o*)

He didn't stutter last time we saw him when he was talking to himself...

That's probably not how you spell his name, but he's in a show called the Big Bang Theory.
Bonz0 28th Jan 2012, 7:38 PM edit delete reply
Ah. I've only seen a little bit of that show at other people's houses.
the_unchosen_one 28th Jan 2012, 11:49 PM edit delete reply
Maybe it's a confidence thing, as with Raj from Big Bang Theory. He stutters when other people are around, but not when just talking to himself
Maltor Drey 15th Jun 2012, 10:02 AM edit delete reply
Clearly it's because 'Fungus' isn't actually his name, and he's lying.

I seem to recall someone on the previous page mentioning that gem to be a communicator of some sort, a la, Wind Waker. Gotta give 'em props for that

Huh. I assumed it was one of those gem thingies that you use in paper mario to find the oasis.

Uhh.. I mean the ruins. That one. Not the oasis.

Fungus looks REALLY odd in panel 2.
Wonder what Fungus and Jack abilities are going to be?
Still amazing as always.

I bet he'll keep the "Shrapnel" name though due to what's likely to be incomplete repairs.
Infamous Nefarious 27th Jan 2012, 9:36 AM edit delete reply
Infamous Nefarious
How very true! A moniker of neccessity. For no King worth their crown pursues something as lowbrow and common as revenge with any illusions of remaining noble.

But Shrapnel can go after as much revenge as he wants. Now can't he?
Mr. Vareel 27th Jan 2012, 2:38 PM edit delete reply
Mr. Vareel
If he keeps the name "Shrapnel," then I'm going to be confused every time someone addresses him.
SecretAgent000 28th Jan 2012, 10:30 AM edit delete reply
Perhaps his title should be Sir Shrapnel?
Mr. Vareel 28th Jan 2012, 12:34 PM edit delete reply
Mr. Vareel
That wouldn't help (me).
Tinman 29th Jan 2012, 12:35 AM edit delete reply

I called him Yoshi Egg face when I first caught him! Now he has a name! ... and he's not a a dude with relevance to Yoshi eggs. d'awwwwww.
the_unchosen_one 28th Jan 2012, 2:33 AM edit delete reply
Names are just names. You may be right about the Yoshi egg. Remember, different colored Yoshi's have different colored spots on their eggs

Did anyone confirm what Jack is? He looks like a BeanBean Kingdom resident.

Yeah, Jack being Beanish seems to be the most popular theory.

Tigress 27th Jan 2012, 9:11 PM edit delete reply
So, this is what I think: fungus is a relative of Go: Same eyes, and the polka dots could be his variation on the toad spots. That's all I've gotten so far from him.
Owl 27th Jan 2012, 11:19 PM edit delete reply
Could he be the 'Blair' person Go talks about?
the_unchosen_one 28th Jan 2012, 2:34 AM edit delete reply
I don't know... Blair sounds like a girl's name to me, but Fungus has kind of a male figure/build
Mr. Vareel 28th Jan 2012, 12:39 PM edit delete reply
Mr. Vareel
I've come to the conclusion that "Blair" is a unisex name. My younger sibling has a friend named Blair, and he is definitely a guy. However, (unless you count the Book of Eibon chapters) Soul Eater has a perfect example of a girl/cat that is named Blair. (I may retype this later when I'm not too tired to check grammatical errors.)
the_unchosen_one 28th Jan 2012, 11:50 PM edit delete reply
Argument accepted. Fungus may be Blair. (I really need to log in when I comment every once in a while...)
Mr. Vareel 29th Jan 2012, 3:59 AM edit delete reply
Mr. Vareel
I have it set so I never log out. Probably not the smartest idea, but I don't really care.
ExarArcian 28th Jan 2012, 5:22 PM edit delete reply
I think Detective Jack may be the stand-in for Boss Birdo, if the past of the Chainless is meant to catch up with them. My theory (and apologies if someone said this on a past page) is that Jack is investigating the death of Boss Birdo. I can't remember what the fallout of their actions was there, if any, but it'd be interesting if they were indeed wanted for murder, however justified/accidental it may have been.

(Memory is quite spotty around that area, I think it needs a reread...)
MeowMixIsorCats339 28th Jan 2012, 5:57 PM edit delete reply
Looks like the Chainless are about to run into the fuzz.
Flame of A Warrior 29th Jan 2012, 10:23 AM edit delete reply
Fungus could be a goomba

I wonder if these people have anything to do with the Chargin' Chuck and Hayzee Dayzee.
Mr. Vareel 31st Jan 2012, 4:15 PM edit delete reply
Mr. Vareel
I don't think so, but they'll probably show up anyways when they finish their sand jet-ski (or however it's written).

Wasn't it Chargin' Charlene?

DicktheCat 29th Jan 2012, 6:39 PM edit delete reply
Fungus sorta reminds me of slendy, not having much in the way of facial features and all.

Like everyone else, I'm trying to figure out who the detective is. Whoever he is, I'm diggin' the design.
13Swords 29th Jan 2012, 9:34 PM edit delete reply
I really like the character Fungus so far, but... Are we sure he's Go related? He isn't showing his face... I'm wondering if he's related to Guy somehow? Not related, but Guy did once kill a goomba with a knife to the heart. Anyone got somethin for me?
Bonz0 29th Jan 2012, 11:38 PM edit delete reply
Well, both Fungus and Guy seem to be skilled at working with machinery.
the_unchosen_one 31st Jan 2012, 1:38 PM edit delete reply
Good call. He may be a shyguy from a different tribe than Guy. McCoy said they'll incorporate entire cultures, so maybe he's from a tribe that was real close with Toads or beat them in a war or something. They could have possibly incorporated Toad masks instead of Shy masks, and they could've gotten speech from anywhere
Moffee 30th Jan 2012, 2:19 PM edit delete reply
Eh, I'mma guess that Fungus is a Super mushroom that's worried about being eaten for his power, or Go's hat after gaining sentiance.
