who not to expect

posted by Pell3t on - Viewed by 2.3K users

I'm just curious since TWAU is the first time I've been introduced to something like this but I was wondering which fables I can expect and not expect to be in this game. (Princesses, Disney characters, mythological creatures, Hercules, Goku, Superman etc.)

  • Well, most "Disney Characters" are based on old fables, folktales or other stories.

    You might see: Prince Charming, Cinderella, Jack, Pinocchio, Briar Rose (Sleeping Beauty), Boy Blue, Red Rose, Reynard the Fox, Frau Totenkinder (Black Forest Witch), Blue Beard, etc.

    You wont see: Superman (even though DC owns Vertigo) or Goku (he is just a lame ripoff of Superman anyways)

    • Though I want to hit you in the nose for talking s#it about goku. (jk)
      That's why I brought up Superman cause I thought DC only did superheroes, but now I know. I have a few characters I was wondering about. I assume that Jack is the person that climbed the beanstalk (feel free to correct) but what about Alice in wonderland, Rumplestiltskin, ..... I know a faster way of asking this. Does everybody that shows up in Shrek have a possibility of showing up in TWAU? (I know I was kind of everywhere when I typed this.)

  • Same here, sounds like a good idea to take fairy tales to the next level

  • Ok cool. I think I found out what I wanted. Didn't know Jack and the Beanstalk/giant slayer was Jack Frost. (still might look that up just in case) I think the person I'm looking forward to meeting the most is The Headless Horseman. That sounds like a badass conversation/fight.

  • one more question... Since Grendel from Beowulf is in game, could characters like Hercules, Haides, and Zeus be in it? Or any giant elemental monsters besides The North Wind? This games got me wanting to look up old fables and myths.

    • Simply put, yes. The only characters you won't see are those still under copyright. Anything that's "Public Domain", (Google it) could make an appearance. Even characters from copyrighted material could make an appearance, if they're never actually named AS those characters but described/drawn looking kind of like them (though this is unlikely).

      In the comic book world of Fables characters are the same ones as those that share their names. The more legends, the more people remember them and the more powerful the character. So Jack is Very powerful as he is every character from Jack-be-nimble to Jac'o'lantern and Snow White is slightly less so since she only has one story, but everybody knows it.

      Goku isn't a rip-off of Superman. He's based off the Monkey King from the story 'Into the West' and several other legends. You won't be seeing any characters from Dragonball though. They aren't public domain, yet.

      • Correct, Goku is based on Sun Wokong and I never said otherwise. That still doesn't change the fact that Goku's origin story is a complete rip-off of Superman's.

        Both are members of an advanced race that got wiped out. Both were saved from their planet exploding via space pod. Both were sent to Earth. Both were adopted by country folk and raised to be kindhearted. Both became the main protector of planet Earth. Both find out that they aren't the last of their race. Both confronted the being that destroyed their planet and defeated him. etc. etc.

        This really isn't debatable...

      • I was reading and it even said Winnie the Pooh was there in the background in two different comics. Of course due to copy right issues they didn't make a big deal out of him but still that's interesting

  • We'll see who Holly's sister is, we'll see Georgie Porgie, hope we'll also see Frau in the next episode.

  • What about the dwarfs, are they getting an appearance in the game somewhere in here?
