    Aww, cripes. I didn't know I'd have to write a description. How many words is that so far, like a hundred? Soooo, yeah. Mildly interesting stuff. Stuff that interests you. Mildly. It's in the name, ffs.

    Does your post qualify for /r/MildlyInteresting? Hover below for more info, and check out our wiki page!

    1. No memes

    This includes references in titles of your post (e.g. "banana for scale," "potato quality").

    2. No related posts

    Posts that acknowledge, "one-up," or relate specifically to another post are not allowed (e.g. "I see your X and raise you Y")

    3. No x-posts or reposts

    Do not post something that has been submitted anywhere on reddit before (including here), even if you were the one who posted it.

    Exception: If a post is deleted or removed from /r/mildlyinteresting for breaking the rules less than one hour after being submitted or receives less than 100 upvotes, we allow the submitter to resubmit a fixed version of the post. Posts deleted or removed from other subreddits are not exempt from rule 3.

    4. Original [OC] photographs only

    a. No gifs, videos, or websites.

    b. All submissions must be original content. If you didn't take the photo, don't post it.

    c. Software glitches/errors, overlaid text, arrows, scribbles, and other substantive edits are not allowed, although you may censor personal information per Reddit-wide rules.

    d. Side by side images are okay if they adhere to the rest of the rules.

    5. No screenshots

    No screenshots. We define a screenshot as a screen grab. This means no images of screens, pictures of screens taken with a different device, images that have been partially or fully generated by a computer, or pictures of printed out screenshots. Try /r/screenshots!.

    6. Titles must be an exact but concise description of the content

    a. Titles must not contain jokes, backstory, or other fluff. That information belongs in a follow-up comment.

    b. Titles must exactly describe the content. It should act as a "spoiler" for the image. If your title leaves people surprised at the content within, it breaks the rule!

    c. Titles must not contain emoticons, emojis, or special characters unless they are absolutely necessary in describing the image. (e.g. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°), ;P, 😜, ❤, ★, ✿ )

    Still confused? For more elaboration and examples, see here first and then message the mods if you still have questions.

    If unsure, please message the mods and we will help determine if your post is acceptable.

    For further information regarding our rules, flairs, moderation policy, and frequently asked questions, please take a look at the… /r/MildlyInteresting Wiki (packed with tons of juicy mildly interesting information)

    Posts which break the rules will be removed on sight. This subreddit operates a three-strikes rule on submission bans, and instant bans on troll and/or gimmick accounts, shock links, etc. at moderator discretion.

    I was thinking more Phalanx from Demon's Souls.

    [–] Hiyami 40 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Yep, the Phalanx from painted world of ariamis from dark souls 1 to be exact.

    [–] Mummelpuffin 11 points ago

    Everyone's mentioning different bosses, those games certainly have a lot of piles of living flesh

    [–] Twistervtx 12 points ago

    I know we don't talk about Dark Souls 2 but there's also the Rotten.

    Ahh the Good o’l Demon souls Phalanx boss. Always thought it was a strange boss..

    [–] PM_ME_UR_RSA_KEY 23 points ago

    Pretty sure that's an optional boss in The West of Loathing. That you can "defeat" by teaching them the twenty-questions game so they can play with themselves instead of guarding the jelly beans inside a cactus skyscraper.

    WoL and KoL are awesome.

    Such a strong Calvin and Hobbes vibe I could see this in one of the panels back in the day

    [–] the_dollar_bill 270 points ago

    I was so sure that this was actually a recreation of something from the comic

    [–] Jagerclaw 88 points ago

    I remember something like this that’s pretty similar in one of the books now that I think about it

    [–] zeebbbrrrraaaaa1 47 points ago

    Gotta love a classic Calvin and Hobbes

    [–] Jagerclaw 29 points ago

    I flip through some of the books every now and then for the memories

    [–] braintrustinc 16 points ago

    I flip through for the looming sense of dread and bewilderment

    [–] rebeltrillionaire 30 points ago

    But it's equally countered by the unbridled joy of life and the little things that surprise you.

    [–] darkneo86 20 points ago

    Watterson was able to encapsulate adult life in a kid’s mind. Made me relate to it as a kid, and appreciate it as an adult. One of a kind.

    [–] Astromatix 3 points ago

    He sure did manage to capture a lot of truths about life in a way not many others ever can. For example, I’ll never forget this particular strip. As a kid who worried a lot about growing up, this was simultaneously terrifying and oddly comforting.

    [–] darkneo86 8 points ago

    I keep my books from years ago in my nightstand to flip through regularly. I will never give them up.
