    Majora's Mask...

    Just... the entire game and everything in it!

    Or would that be more suitable for Changeling?

    Crypt TV has tons of stuff that is pretty cool.
    Didn't we have a 'nightmare triggered by whoever eats this' somewhere? Black Sugar would fit that bill quiet well.

    So finally got around to watching Babylon 5. Mr. Mordin is either a perfect enabler or an interesting tyrant. Actually I suppose you could take Mordin as the enabler with the Shadows as the Tyrant. To put a simple way Mordin asked a person what they wanted, he got the answer and with just demonstration indebted the person into a position they didn't like. The Shadows are ancient and absurdly powerful to the point where its basically one Shadow ship to crush any army sent against it. (This is all season 2 stuff when the Shadows are basically just things that show up and decimate, so I don't know how they'll fair in a more open conflict when that crops up.)

    A quote from Evgeny Schwartz' play The Dragon , which I think could be very inspirational for a Tyrant of some description:

    "You see, the human soul is very resilient. Cut the body in half — and the man croaks. But tear the soul apart — and it only becomes more pliable, that's all. No, really, you couldn't pick a finer assortment of souls anywhere. Only in my town. Souls with no hands. Souls with no legs. Mute souls, deaf souls, chained souls, snitch souls, damned souls."

    Necro: The upcoming movie "The Mermaid" looks like it could be used for a particularly vicious Makara.

    From what I understand, his body is so toxic that he spreads radiation poisoning everywhere he goes. Which means those people should probably evacuate the fucking city every time he shows up!
    Original Gojira was, yes. By now, that allegory has undergone some... fluctuations, let's call it.

    The idea of a Beast/Horror so awe inspiring in how terrifying it is became the inspiration for my Anakim Ravager.

    Not the whole movie, but the "Fear Simulation" scenes from Divergent could make for a good application of Lair Traits - or Nightmares taking effect.

    Ow Lord... My brain did a thing....

    Godzilla is what happens if a Deviant is Devoured......

    Edit:
    To Clarify (I find brainstorming like this Fun) The Deviant was likely hunted and nearly killed in/near an Island, one of the Local Beast found an... Odd Kin (probably never meet something like them before) and tried to save them, the Rage and strength they had made them tap into the Dream and made them into something Else, Nearly instantly sending them into an Inheritance (Rampancy Probaly) this being a Deviant (from what we know of them) they step into a Spiral of power and growth and constantly redefine themselves.
    I'm thinking this would end up as the equivalent of Shin Godzilla....

    I watched "Take Shelter" over the weekend and while it's a slow burn I think it's an excellent depiction of an Anakim's victim, particularly a "force of nature" kind of Anakim.

    The manga Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro​ is great inspiration of how to be a Beast and help people without necessarily having a "just" motive. The title character solves murder mysteries, not to help people, but because he literally feeds off the murderous will of a pre-meditated murderer. Heck, the extent Neuro's dedication to his hunger lines up perfectly with a Beast's; at one point it's revealed that his hunger is so strong, he's effectively chosen eating over breathing.

    Many of Neuro's powers also resemble nightmares and atavisms, either breaking his opponents brains or revealing the more inhuman features of his body, allowing him to uncover details his opponents have carefully hidden.

    ​Neuro would definitely an Ugallu (given how he leaves killers feeling naked and vulnerable) and Ravager (He shows no interest in actually punishing criminals, only in solving the puzzles their crimes make).


    ​Meanwhile, the main villain of the series, Sicks, is a perfect example of an Insatiable. Just look at the things the man does, I won't spoil it for anyone who wants to enjoy the series for themselves.
    ​WARNING, the anime ended before the manga finished, so the endings are very different.

    ==Edit==

    ​With the BPG released, I want to add a little to this post:
    ​Neuro might also count as a hunger for Whispers (since he reveals a criminals secrets and methods)
    ​Also, Yako would definitely be a Herald, especially after what happened during the Kamigiri incident.
