  1. A bouncy rock
  2. A bull
  3. Tail flips
  4. A leaping walrus
  5. Some angry eyes, and an angrier tail
  6. A butt mouth
  7. A pine cone
  8. A tyrannosaurus cat

What do these things have in common?

HINT 1:

The Crimson Chin, a sick chicken, and a dog with fleas do not have this same thing in common with each other or the other things.

HINT 2:

Number 3 has a male counterpart, whose Rage-Inducing Tupperware is perhaps the most famous.

HINT 3:

The pine cone is often referred to as "Steve".

HINT 4:

The through-line is not the franchise.

HINT 5:

In response to feedback I have received:
Number 1 does not itself bounce, but causes everything that touches it to bounce.
Number 4 is not thick and blubbery like a walrus, instead being thin and agile like a cat.
Number 5 lives in the jungle, and is known for its speed.

EDIT 1: Updated hint 5

    $\begingroup$ Yes a butt mouth. take that as you will. $\endgroup$ – Bewilderer Apr 14 at 16:12
  • $\begingroup$ is hint 1 saying that it is not rot13(Oveq jlirea oehgr jlirea be snatrq jlirea)? $\endgroup$ – IT Alex Apr 22 at 20:48
  • $\begingroup$ @ITAlex yes, that's what it means $\endgroup$ – Bewilderer Apr 22 at 21:16

Partial/guess, but I'm thinking

Banjo-Kazooie

Here's why:

1. ?
2. The first stage has a bull you avoid
3. They can tail flip to jump higher
4. They can turn into a walrus in one stage
5. ?
6. Kazooie can shoot eggs from her butt
7. Pine Grove is a location in Banjo-Tooie?
8. ?


I can't make sense of the title, so this is more of a guess than anything, but too many clues fit my answer not to at least go for it!

  • $\begingroup$ Nope, not the right track. I like the idea though. Keep trying! $\endgroup$ – Bewilderer Apr 12 at 17:03
  • $\begingroup$ I figured there's a bunch I'm missing, I just got excited that maybe there was a BK reference somewhere :D $\endgroup$ – Somebody Apr 12 at 17:43

  • $\begingroup$ ah, then hopefully someone comes along who knows it better! I've got some suspicions but lack the knowledge to know where to go $\endgroup$ – Somebody Apr 16 at 16:19

It is:

Flying Wyverns

2.

Diablos. Known for charging at people with its bull like horns

6.

Khezu. Look up its picture... nuff said.

7.

Sergios. goes by steve.

Hint 1

Implies that Deviljho, Kulu yaku, and odogaron are all not included. Brute, Fang, Bird Wyverns as a species.

Thats all I could muster with my knowledge of monster hunter! Good luck to everyone else!

  • $\begingroup$ Your overarching category is correct, well done. I will say that #6 is not correct, its mouth is not a butt, nor is its butt a mouth. $\endgroup$ – Bewilderer Apr 22 at 21:56
  • $\begingroup$ Also, small gripe, although you got the right information out of hint 1, none of the individuals you listed there are correct. $\endgroup$ – Bewilderer Apr 22 at 21:57
  • $\begingroup$ none of those individuals being right legitimately suprises me! I commend your devious puzzle. $\endgroup$ – IT Alex Apr 23 at 12:39
