Deus ex Macropus by Hail-NekoYasha Deus ex Macropus by Hail-NekoYasha
Got into playing Oracle of Seasons again, ye, funderful. (Ages is still better.) Got Ricky's flute, too, yaay. Ricky's always bothered me a bit, though...I just can't put my finger on the reason why.

Oh yeah.

Biology.



Yar, and sorry for the total "I'm too lazy to draw grass" grass. And I know the physics going on in the last panel are somehow retarded, but I'm feeling especially lazy today.


For those of you out there on the less nerdier end of the spectrum: yes, the title was another brilliant pun. "Macropus" is Latin for kangaroo (and wallabies, too, but nobody loves them) and Deus ex Machina is...okay, look it up if you don't know. I don't feel like explaining it. Just trust me that it's the funniest thing you've ever heard.

Actually "Macropus" translates into "Large Foot." I would say Ricky's scientific name is: "Macropus Rufus."

It's like "Ornithorhynchus Anatinus" the scientific name for the platypus. The name literally translates to "bird snout duck-like."

Personally, I would've taken the opportunity without question.

I just ended up coming to the conclusion that Ricky was truly meant to be female and they translated the "i" into a "y" incorrectly (as "Ricki" is a name that can apply to either gender)...

You seem to enjoy beating Link and Marth up a lot...
Oh well, it's amusing.

I think they were on GameBoy Color. I'm playing OoS on GBC right now, but I'm not sure if it's anything like Link to the Past where they moved it to a different platform later. o^o

Err... It stated either in Nintendo Power or the game itself that Ricky was a girl, Ricky merely being a nickname. For what, I have no freakin' idea.
