    Other than my Wii pic, I've never really had an avatar on this board, so I thought that me getting an avatar is an event worthy of a new thread. Additionally, the picture is so disturbing that I figured I'd get a ton of comments from scared people, so I might as well make a thread about.

    So...here it is.

    Yes, that's Tingle.

    Yes, he's shirtless.

    Yes, he's sunbathing.

    Yes, I know that such a thing should never happen and that it's terrible :D

    You guys have never played Zelda: The Wind Waker, have you?

    Tingle is a fat 40 year old midget who wears makeup, thinks he's a fairy, and stalks little children (inviting ten year old kids to sleepovers in one game).

    His entire purpose of the game is to charge you 3200 rupees to decode a couple of maps- it takes half the game just to save up the cash to pay him off. He also uses his brother and a guy he saved from a shipwreck as slave labor to turn a giant statue of himself.

    In Zelda: Four Swords (the game he invites children to slumber parties in), he flies around on a balloon and steals your gems every time you get hit.

    Nobody has ever seen him outside of his green suit...before today :)

    Clearly not. :eek: (I'm still trying to finish Link to the Past :D )

    Your description gives reason to be disturbed, but I still think it looks good!

    I think the image is only mildly disturbing... but only to the point that now I'm adding his personality to the image and it becomes more disturbing. At least Myamoto didn't put him in the games that way.

    BTW, where on earth did you even come across such a picture?

    There are more homoerotic pictures of Tingle than that, sadly...

    Yup. Did I mention that he normally dresses in Peter Pan-like tights? More Michael Jackson similarities...:D


    This is actually from the Tingle RPG coming out for the DS. He's getting his own game :eek:
