Tembo the Badass Elephant is a Bit Desperate, Isn't it?

the most you can say about Tembo the Badass Elephant is that it is what it is. There's something about anything that self-identifies with the word 'badass' that comes across as obnoxious.

So....you hate Michael Jackson?

Personally, I'd like to imagine that Tembo happens to have haemorrhoids.

Or rather not, haemorrhoids can be nasty, and Tembo hasn't done anything bad to me.

Haha, in that screenshot Tembo is making the same adorable running noise as Hamtaro. "Bada bada bada bada."
Truly he is the most 'Badass' of all elephants.

SO I guess this means he doesn't like that song "Everything Is Awesome" from The Lego Movie?

Does anyone remember Operation Dumbo Drop? The reason I'm asking is because it seems like something relevant to bring up.

Ahhh, the TMNT reference at the end <3

"when his scheme to give all the other jungle animals bum diseases ends with him contracting the worst anus infection of all."
This made me lol quite hard, Sir. Thanks again! :)

That "The Incredible Journey of Captain Fucking Amazing" Bit was the best laugh i've had all day

I always thought the ass in badass referred to a donkey and the phrase originated from notably ill-tempered ones. Incidentally, they should have made Tembo a donkey and just called the thing "Bad Ass." Or has that been done? It sounds like it had been done.

Well... That was a "badass" way of putting it, I guess...

Other than that, I think in terms of Tempo, it's an "all of the above" kind of description for this elephant being a badass overall...

"Tubular" is my favorite cool turned goofy word. "Tembo the Tubular Turtle" would make a good name.

Yahtzee Croshaw:
'Badass' is also rather hopelessly quaint, since it's rooted in that now rather tragically retro use of the word 'bad' to mean 'good in a sort of thuggish way'.

Correct me if it turns out I've been mistaken my whole life, but isn't it the other way around? Like, "bad" in the street sense was short for "badass"?

But that was self aware and for plot purposes and character development. I thought it was used correctly.

OT: Bodacious would have been a better word but maybe not appealing to the younger audience, which since this is game freak I assume is their target market.

This is what skillful writing looks like. An entire article about the title of a game and it's pretty entertaining.
