MP - Beamos by HikariMichi MP - Beamos by HikariMichi
Anyone else thinks that the Beamos enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword are a lot like the Daleks from Doctor Who? I mean, both look kind of robotic, they are evil, their sound effects are similar, they can transport themselves in weird ways (the Daleks can fly and the Beamos can teleport), they show up in large groups and they shoot fatal laser beams. The Daleks are probably my favourite enemies from Doctor Who, because they are cute (yes, they are) and they have a classic sci-fi feel to them that I like. Though quite frankly, I'm not the biggest Doctor Who fan ever, it's a bit too scary for my taste (I'm more of a Sherlock person) but it's fun to watch it sometimes. Out of all the enemies the characters encounter in Doctor Who, I'd prefer encountering the Daleks over nearly all of the others! XD

Anywho, I just had to do this because it was fun. I came up with this when I was watching Doctor Who a while ago. And I have some more MP ideas, but don't worry, I've got other stuff to upload too!
So, I may like the Daleks … But I HATE the Beamos. Probably because you don't have to fight the Daleks yourself (obviously, unless you play some kind of Doctor Who game, which I don't) but the Beamos you have to kill in the game yourself to make progress. The Beamos was one of the enemy types I had the biggest issues with defeating, together with the giant scorpions and a couple of others. They sure "exterminated" me thousands of times, if you know what I mean, and Fi even said that my strength compared to theirs was "very weak" :rofl: I was just really bad with the Motion Plus thing.

Btw, speaking of Sherlock, I know I haven't mentioned it much, but I really love the show and it would be great to do some kind of fanart soon. The reason this brings Sherlock to mind is well, the creators and writers are partly the same for both the shows, and they are both by BBC. I can't wait till the next season of Sherlock!!! Can you??

Also, it was fun to upload something even remotely related to Zelda, because it was a while ago. But I have a lot of Zelda ideas that I hope I can show you soon …

Enjoy anyway and thanks for watching.

Have you seen the episode "Silence in the Library" I think in that episode the Doctor said something about the weak spots of various enemies.

Daleks - Go for the eye
Sontarans - Back of the neck
Vashta Nerada - Run

Cool! Well I haven't seen that episode, but obviously that's the way to defeat the Beamos too. I just wasn't very good at it in this game xD

ALOT of zelda seems to lift a page from doctor who.
A hero who has many incarnations (Link, Doctor)
Acompanied by various companions (Linebeck, Captain Jack)
A large majority of which are femal (Navi and Midna, Sarah Jane and Amy Pond)
Rarely seen with out their iconic Steed or weapon (Epona and the MAster sword, TARDIS and the Sonic screwdriver)
One of which has on ocasion taken a human like form (Fi and Idris)
Facing various fantastic enemies (Beamos and Darknuts, daleks and Ice warriors)
But none more dangerous than the man that shares his past but has less hope for a future (Gannondorf and the Master)
And thats not even getting into the fact that half of the Zelda games have at least some parts of time travel, or that the doctor often has to solve puzzles much like link does, espcially in classic who stories.

Yeah. I guess you have a point, haven't really thought about it. Although one difference is that I'm not sure if all the Links are actually regenerations of the same person (some of them may be, but not in the same way as the Doctor of course), and he doesn't seem to have any memories of his past lives. And Link tends to look about the same, but the Doctor doesn't … But I think it's a pretty common concept, isn't James Bond a bit like that too with all the different actors playing him?
I don't know how popular Doctor Who is in Japan and if the Zelda executives have watched it, they might have …

Doctor Who has had a following in japan from what I've heard. And if the doctor who reference in apollo justice wasn't put in through translation I'd have to guess it's still popular there.

On the topic of Sherlock...
10 bucks says that John is going to KILL Sherlock when he comes back.

Very possible … I saw some comic about it x3 Don't a lot of fans theorize that Sherlock punched him in the face based on some promo picture of Sherlock?
LuminaBalderson Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2013
They did.
But still, you know it MUST happen.
