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.

Yeah, I do that. It's not that I can't defeat them. I finished the entire game and killed all the Beamos. Only, I usually tilted the Wii Remote the wrong way and I end up getting killed. I know that you can stun them but I get stressed up so I usually don't have time to stab them before they come back to life.

O.O

How come I never saw the connection?! ^.-

But honestly speaking.... I HATED THOSE BEAMOSES!!! Even in earlier games (OoT, TP). *shivers* I really ran past them during the first time in SS until I had to fight that one darn robot that I'd get forward. -.-' It nearly freaking killed me! >.< It was just pure luck that I got it killed. Stabbing is so HARD!! But once I got the bow and arrows...... NOW WE'RE TALKING!!! XD Glad that weapon works in TP too. ^.^ Though, I've never checked it at OoT....... Should try it out one day or another! =)

Faving! =D

I hate them too … They suck :/ I hated them a lot more in SS than in TP because they were much easier to destroy in TP. You just had to shoot them in the eye with a slingshot ONCE and then they were dead. I agree, the stabbing thing was soooo hard!! Motion plus is not always my friend … I also hated the giant scorpions, I had serious issues with defeating them, for the same reasons. And yeah, the bow and arrows pretty much saved my life as well. I haven't tried it in OoT either.

Thanks! :D

AkuDemyfan Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013
Yeah, SS Beamos is way harder than TP. >.< At least you didn't have to go in close range in TP like you need to do at first in SS. ^^; Though, I never used slingshot against the Beamoses in TP, just bow and arrows. ^^; Oh, and not to mention that I freaked out when the Beamoses came out for first time in SS. And nearly ran past them as fast as possible. -.-' Plus when I first saw them I nearly shouted out loud: NOO! NOT THESE GUYS!!!

And I LOVE that scorpion in SS! <3 It was lot of fun to dig it out of the sand. XD And in rematch on the Thunder Dragon's thingy I defeated the creature in two mins (or under, not sure). ^^; And it's one of my fave enemies in whole game. =) Oh, and either I had one hell of a luck or then it really works but I didn't have to use stab that of much with the third eye. ^^; I just managed to slash at it. XD

Should give a try of bow and arrows in OoT someday..... It would be cool to find out that it worked already at then. At least there'd be connection whole time. XD Especially since getting the smoke of the bomb into the darn thing's eye was hard. >.<

I … THINK you can use the slingshot? Not sure though. But it's awesome that you can use the fishing rod against Ganondorf XD

Glad to know at least someone had fun with it xD I should have slashed it too … But I don't really remember how I did it. Anyway I hated when it came back on that one island and then you didn't even need anything in the room, you had to go somewhere else so it was all a waste :lol: If I remember correctly …

Hm, you have to get smoke from a bomb into the Beamos' eye? Sounds tricky …

AkuDemyfan Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013
Gotta check that slingshot thing. =) I tried once at that fishing rod thing on Gamecube (TP) but it didn't work. TT.TT And I didn't dare to try the bug net in SS. I was having hard enough time with that darn demon. -.-'

And I think the second scorpion was at place where you needed to get into the next room from where the creature was. And we were searching for something..... What was it again...? A map maybe...? Anyways, it was lot easier on the second round. =)

It certainly is! Timing the throwing of bombs close to the darn Beamoses and wish for best. >.< I don't know how long I spent so I'd get those two off of my way. TT.TT That was the hardest part of Dodongo's Cave. -.-' Though, after Forest Temple I left the game off because of December and at Christmas I got SS! <3 Been playing that ever since. ^^;

yes. when i first played i had NO clue how to kill those. but now i realize there's numbers of ways. Using a sword strategically to cut them down, shooting the eye with an arrow, or my favorite but possibly more difficult is deflecting their laser with a well used shield attack

AkuDemyfan Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2013
You can deflect the beam by shield attack?!? O.O Never thought about that. I had hard time to destroy it by sword because stabbing was hard. -.-' But once I got the bow and arrows.... That's when I started to beat them without much of problem! XD

Maybe but all you need to do is stay far enough. Just keep backing away from their reach, find safe spot and kill them from afar. =) And most of the time that wasn't hard.... Except when going to save the Thunder Dragon. Though I could use the cart for my protection. XD Yet, during first round I didn't have arrows with me. -.-' After restocking it was easy. ^^;

Even with knowing how to kill them I STILL hate them. >.<

>.< OMG! Exactly!! That was so unexpected! XD Though, it was fun to sneak around and gather my stuff back. And it could've been longer too and not give the rest of stuff from one chest. -.-' And this is probably the second.... No, THIRD time Link has been thrown in jail. XD First in OoT by Gerudo, then in TP in wolf-form by Twili and now in SS by Bokoblins. -.-' Though, only ONCE Link has had to gather his stuff back. ^^; So, in reality only once the bad guys have understood to get Link's stuff off but even then they can't stop the HERO!!! XD

Oh, and what about the Water Dragon? ^.- It was kinda fun to swim around the Faron Woods. XD Gathering the tadtones was mix of fun and hard. ^^; Hard at first because I wasn't fully sure what to do or how and fun once I got the idea...... And the by the snoozing or something like that. THAT really helped a lot. =) Not to mention about being thrown into the woods by Groosenator or whatever it was called. -.-'
