Inojin potenitally combining Mind Transfer with Beast Scrolls
So I’ve been thinking about how Inojin will be using the Mind Transfer Technique for the first time in next weeks episode.
I was a little confused at first since the episode seems to revolve around the Super Beast Scroll Technique but then I began to think about him utilising both techniques into one super technique which got me excited! You may ask how? and the answer comes from this man
Fu was a Yamanaka clan member as well as a part of the Root organisation. He had his own unique variation of the Mind Transfer known as ‘Mind Puppet Switch Cursed Seal Technique’. What this allowed him to do was transfer his mind into a puppet and upon an enemy attacking the puppet, Fu would then gain control of his targets body and from then on it acts like a standard mind transfer.
Fu’s version of the mind transfer was basically a more useful version of Ino’s since unlike hers, He doesn’t have to stand directly in front of the enemy and target the transfer in a straight line which left Ino vulnerable hence why she would only use it when she had backup from team 10 or Sai (Sakura Hiden) as seen by the fact she wouldn’t use it in the Hidan/Kakazu fight or a number of filler fights. Also since Fu was a Yamanaka and also a Root member, he has links to both Ino and Sai so they both should know about his technique!
Back to Inojin, could we potenitally see him combining both his parents jutsu’s in a similar style to Fu’s technique by transferring his mind into a Beast Scroll and then attacking his enemy as an animal, once he gets a successful hit he would then gain control of the enemies body. This would be really useful since Sai’s justu would therefore negate the drawbacks of Ino’s jutsu (having to stand directly in front of enemy and left defenceless) making it much more useful.
This might end up being too good to be true but I guess we’ll have to wait and see in next weeks episode!
It is stated in the game that Ganon’s reincarnation was interrupted which resulted in him becoming the mindless Giygas like Calamity that he is in the game. But what if the reincarnation wasn’t a total failure? What if the Calamity isn’t the only part of Ganon left in Hyrule? What if the Gerudo man, Ganondorf was in fact reincarnated as the giant black and red horse.
This red haired, native of the Gerudo region, bears the highest strength (read: power) out of any horse in the game. He is also the most reluctant to allow Link to control him.
Though he may just be a descendant of Ganon’s horse, I like to think that perhaps the mortal Ganondorf might finally be free of the reincarnation cycle that has left him cursed to be Demise’s puppet all these millennia. Perhaps he is able to move on living a final peaceful life as a creature that is often used as a symbol of freedom.
I haven’t seen this theory anywhere and I just wanted to throw it into the ether.
Screwball Ninja’s Mini-OUAT Review: 6x19 The Black Fairy
“I wouldn’t say a word that could be reckoned as injurious But to find a mother younger than her son is very curious … “ -Iolanthe
This was a great episode, thematically speaking. It had a plot twist and Zelena being relevant and Rumple bringing his A+ acting and lots of Jaime Murray, which is never a bad thing. Here we go!
The price for casting the Dark Curse is the Heart of the Thing You Love Most– which for the Black Fairy would be either Malcolm or Rumple, right? Even if the Black Fairy and Tiger Lily had a hot affair (no indications so far except for sharing clothes), Tiger Lily would come a distant third to Malcolm/Rumple in the line of Things Black Fairy Loves. But the flashback made it look like the BF was going to cast the curse herself, only required “wolfsbane”, and was only going to crush Tiger Lily’s heart because she was in the way. So did the O.G. Dark Curse NOT require the Heart of the Thing You Love Most and that got added in UAT to make it work? Or is the show saying the BF loves Tiger Lily more than Rumple? Or did the BF add a “you have to be THIS TALL to get your heart crushed on this ride” clause to exempt babies from the price of the curse to spare Rumple? Beta testing this thing must be a bitch.
If being willing to kill to cast a Dark Curse makes you a “Great Evil,” then are Regina, Snowing, and Hook ALL “Great Evils” ‘cause they cast Dark Curses? Was Hook’s Dark Curse 3.0 even broken?
Malcolm turning his grief about losing his wife into hatred of his child is unfortunately a common trope in fairy tales where mothers frequently didn’t survive childbirth. And I laughed that he thought the best way to hurt his kid was to name him “Rumplestiltskin.” Ouch.
Both Rumple’s parents are peasants who turned themselves into immortal, magical creatures who rule over realms of kidnapped children (mostly boys) where time is screwy? You’d think the Blue Fairy would have tossed Pan in the Dark Realm just to cut down on the kidnappings.
Speaking of which, does the Blue Fairy just not give a damn that kids are disappearing all over the Enchanted Forest to go to Neverland/the Dark Realm for hundreds of years? “Welp, lost another one! Move to the next baby on the list, girls!” Also, didn’t she care that all the kids of Rumple’s country were being massacred by ogres? What good, pray tell, is a fairy’s protection?
Points forever to Zelena for being relatable hating IKEA furniture and running over the Black Fairy in her green Ford pinto (with bonus monkey key-chain). The show has finally found Zelena’s narrative function: comedic relief and back-up Mills assistance. I’m actually looking forward to Zelena scenes– good job, show! But flag on the play for Regina saying Henry can “raise Zelena” in case Storybrooke goes up in flames. Not only is that not fair to Henry but Zelena did help kill Henry’s dad. But I guess Regina killed Henry’s grandfather and great-grandpa and Hook killed Henry’s other great-grandpa and Snow killed Henry’s grandmother and Rumple killed Henry’s great-grandfather and … yikes. This family!
Emma was more like her S1 self in her one-on-one scenes with Rumple– showing empathy and self-reflection and bonding over growing up orphans. As long as she acts like this all the time I don’t care what she wears or who she dates– she can wear a potato sack and date the cursed puppet people for all I care.
The World’s Most Insensitive Person Award this episode goes to Snow, who when Rumple says he’s killed his long-lost mother to protect everyone, immediately says: “Good, we can have the wedding tomorrow.” Damn, Snow. That’s cold. Also impractical, considering Granny’s not going to bake you a cake when you’ve just wrecked her restaurant.
This episode introduces Rumple’s most obvious triple cross of all time. Don’t see the body? Then they ain’t dead! Of course Rumple’s going to play along with mom to get Gideon’s heart back and learn her Evil Plan, only to shiv her to rescue Belle/Gideon/everyone else in the finale. What bothers me is that he gives a general disclaimer to Belle and Gideon that “it may not look like at the time, but everything I do is to protect you” but doesn’t actually let Belle into his triple-cross scheme. There’s only three episodes left– can’t he go one episode without lying to Belle? Isn’t lying to “protect” her part of the reason he got banished in S4?
To the list of Things That Have More Screentime Than Belle in 6B we can add: Random wand parts, Rumple’s cradle AND an IKEA crib, Blue Fairy’s cleavage, the BF’s sparkly tiara, Zelena’s green pinto, Emma’s dream beanie, and Granny’s jukebox. If Belle, who’s Gideon’s mother and wants to be a hero, doesn’t have at least ONE kick-ass moment in an arc whose theme is heroism and motherhood I’m going to flip a table. Tick-fucking-tock, show.
Belle’s happy about Rumple’s Savior past because she’s always emphasized that he’s a good person who “makes bad choices”, as opposed to Rumple’s opinion of himself as just a bad person. This is an important distinction because bad people can ONLY do bad things, whereas if you dislike someone’s decisions they can always make better ones. (I gave the same speech to my toddler the other day.) This is similar to Zelena and Regina kissing and making up in 5B when they had their memories returned of being happy that one afternoon as kids; knowing that reconciliation was possible in the past gives them the confidence to try and love each other in the present. So Rumple knowing he COULD be a savior might give him the confidence to shine out a hero in the finale.
They pulled a Captainswanus Interruptus again, with Hook sleeping elsewhere before the wedding. Are Hook and Emma ever going to get confirmed boning before the season ends?
I love that in the final BF/Rumple nighttime scene the moon is a crescent moon, just like the BF’s tattoo. What a nice little touch.
Bonus: Why is Emma wearing a modified prison shirt?
Oh, waaaaarden, it’s time for my constitutional around the prison yard
