Did Doctor Who change his name to Mr. Katonic?

Assuming you're being sarcastic, what are the ramifications of this?

Actually I have been reading you posts as him this whole time because you act the same and I thought your avatar was Doctor Who related (though it's hard to tell). But then you didn't have any Doctor Who items on your list and that was the first time I noticed that your name was different.

But it worked as a sarcastic statement too, so I left it at that ;D

Resurrecting hellfire dog piss

 If I could give awards for most awesome LoC submissions, Mr.Katonic would get one. I love that entry.

#1 - Portal Gun

#2 - Gravity Gun (Half-Life 2)

#3 - Pokeball

#4 - Overwatch Pulse Rifle (Half-Life 2)
Although it's really stupid that you can't carry more of the ammo clips that are the size of corks.

#5 - Lightsaber

#6 - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

#7 - Pitfall (Animal Crossing & Super Smash Bros.)
KOing someone by spiking them down with a thrown pitfall is as satisfying as it is rare.

#8 - Wingcap (Mario 64)

#9 - The Needler (Halo)
A gun that spears enemies with crystals that then explode, and somehow it's one of the weaker weapons in the games.

#10 - Irken Pack (Invader Zim)
Great for fast travel via spider legs, harvesting organs, or basically whatever else needs done.

#11 - Dib's Balloon Launcher (Invader Zim)

#12 - The Power of Self Respect / Understanding / Love (Scott Pilgrim)

#13 - Star Rod (Kirby and Smash Bros.)
The only weapon that always hits players straight horizontally when thrown in Smash Bros.

#14 - Chemical Thrower (Bioshock)
Shoots not only napalm, but liquid nitrogen and electric gel

#15 - The wind-up guns in "War is the H Word" (Futurama)

#16 - The Finglonger (Futurama)

#17 - Psychic Paper (Doctor Who)
I thought this had a chance if Doctor Who voted for it, and even though it's just as much of a cheap cop-out, I think it's more clever.

#18 - The Windwaker

#19 - Rivet Gun (Bioshock)

#20 - Blue Shell (Mario Kart)
The great equalizer.

#21 - Warp Whistle (Super Mario Bros. 3)
It can let you skip water land, while also playing the perfect music to smoke a hookah to.

#22 - Spy glasses (Specifically, the ones Spike has in Cowboy Bebop)

#23 - Sonar-in-a-biscuit (Kingdom of Loathing)
A cracker-like thing that emits an inaudible screech when snapped in two.

#24 - Bombchus (Ocarina of Time)
The early prototypes for Zhu Zhu Pets were highly unstable...

#25 - The Master Sword (Zelda)

 ???

Well, here's a post where we interact & disagree: http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php/topic,20826.msg616180.html#msg616180. Hopefully this will convince you we're two separate people & have different points of view. Unless you're a conspiracy theorist who will insist that I'm his sock puppet.  ;)

It's Lovecraft-related, except with a terrible play on words. Miskatonic-> Miss Katonic-> Mr. Katonic (since I'm a dude).

DAMN! I was just about to use it for my Skinny Puppy cover band.

Hopefully that becomes my legacy instead of "the guy whose POV on lightsabers kills the dreams of hungry children & accountants." God, I was starting to feel like a war criminal or something. I'm glad that the hellfire dog piss has resurrected my tolerability.  >:D

I just missed this, fun list!

Most glaring omission is Judge Dredd's Lawgiver, obligatory.

Glad to see the Death Note on there oh yes!

I can see why folks put them on their lists. I can also see why some left them off the list. It's all good in the end so long as everyone had fun.  ;D
