I can never see myself.

I can turn your pet into a god.

I can make sweets unpleasant.

I will take your guns away, and you will feel secure.

I can turn the sun into a bunch of rodents.

Who am I?

Answer:

a mirror

because

reversing strings. Second line is DOG -> GOD, third is DESSERTS -> STRESSED (?), fourth is GUNS -> SNUG, and fifth is STAR -> RATS. The first isn't a wordplay clue; I think it's just saying that the mirror doesn't appear in itself.

    $\begingroup$ @Dotan To be honest I thought of mirror straight away from the first line but had no clue how to fit it to the rest of them. $\endgroup$ – TheLethalCipher May 9 '18 at 9:39

  • $\begingroup$ Oof, just shy of a minute later. I like your formatting better, though :) $\endgroup$ – Fund Monica's Lawsuit May 9 '18 at 7:23

Any poison that a dead pet transfers to its owner would fit as well.


I can never see myself

- poison does not have eyes and the pet is dead.

I can turn your pet into a god

- god decides whether you live or die.

I can make sweets unpleasant

- because poison.

I will take your guns away, and you will feel secure

- because you get really weak and can't hold a gun anymore.

I can turn the sun into a bunch of rodents

- person dying with hallucinations.

  • $\begingroup$ You may feel differently - but I suspect I wouldn't feel very secure in the situation you describe... $\endgroup$ – Shadow May 9 '18 at 5:38
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, "because you are drugged and you can't think straight" would be a better fit for that one. I like this one though. $\endgroup$ – Mr Lister May 9 '18 at 11:03
