The Umbrella

Post by 磁計算機騎士 on Sat Dec 13, 2014 1:35 am

I was watching a video about Kid Icarus, and apparently there are some enemies in one game that are based on Kasa-obake, a ghost that possesses an old umbrella.



This reminded me of the umbrella from "Fernkenstein's Monster". However, the haunted umbrellas from Japanese folklore not only have one eye, but are also usually depicted with a tongue sticking out. Maybe that's where they got the idea for the "satisfied slurp".



Here's the Arthur umbrella for comparison.

That umbrella-looking creature was in Super Mario Land 2 and Kirby's Dream Land 2.

Very interesting.  Given the show's past references to other elements of Japanese mythology (i.e. Kappas), I wouldn't be surprised.
