The images below can be connected by a single word.

  4. the boyz

  5. fallout vault boy

  6. character concept art for Ubisoft's For Honor

  7. red text

  8. lego character

  9. lego character

What is the word and what are the connections?


I think the word is:


The connections are:

  1. Hoodie – Hood + IE, Internet Explorer, that is

  2. Neighbourhood – Flanders is the Simpsons' neighbour.

  3. Hood Rats

  4. Boyz n the Hood

  5. Hoodwink – ;)

  6. Knighthood

  7. Little Red Riding Hood

  8. Hood ornament – on a car's radiator ✽

  9. Robin Hood – the figure is of Batman's sidekick Robin

As for the title:

A hood (a gangster or rough person) might be a toughie.

✽ Thanks to the many helpful commenters who pointed me into the right direction on the connection to the hanging Harry Potter Christmas-tree decoration (8).

  • $\begingroup$ Okay, I'll dig some more. Oh, I now see it's Boyz in the (da?) hood! $\endgroup$ – M Oehm May 25 '17 at 10:39
  • $\begingroup$ Maybe the 4th connection is the movie title "Boyz n the Hood" $\endgroup$ – Sherlock Holmes May 25 '17 at 10:43
  • $\begingroup$ @SherlockHolmes: Thanks. I think I've got them now, although I'm not too sure about the HP one. Or is it that the Hogwarts uniforms have hoods? $\endgroup$ – M Oehm May 25 '17 at 10:49
  • $\begingroup$ @MOehm for 8 if it's unrelated to Harry Potter, it's an ornament kind of on a Christmas tree and it's a Lego. If that helps at all :) $\endgroup$ – n_plum May 25 '17 at 12:39

    $\begingroup$ Ornament has to be it - hood ornament, like on the front of a car. $\endgroup$ – tmpearce May 25 '17 at 12:48
