There is very little I could say regarding the introduction of Gregory’s third and final form that I haven’t already said concerning Snuka’s third form.
The differences are mostly superficial – since Gregory didn’t have to return from the Netherlands of the Force, he doesn’t have to lug a cheese wheel around, enabling him to wield his chainsaw two-handedly. Which further enables him to dispatch the generic monsters as quickly and effectively as Snuka, despite not having a ranged weapon.
As with Snuka, I have foregone showing the transformation sequence. While Gregory is no Jedi, the transformation from a living being into a rotting corpse…is both slow as well as unappetizing, so I felt it would fall somewhat outside of what’s acceptable in the magical-girls-genre. There’s a limit to what you can do by adding flowery or lacey FX to a picture, even in this genre. >_>
Latho has also noted the strong parallels between Snuka’s and Gregory’s cases, and has assumed the shape of the appropriate Pokémon to deliver those remarks. It doesn’t speak highly about Latho’s usual shape that assuming the shape of a Ditto is an almost subtle change for it.
More on Thursday.
