Facial Recognition

 The fuzzy version of Fox probably just trims instead of shaves.

Not everyone evil has a goatee, but if you have a goatee, you’re probably evil.

“Yeah, but what about–” No, that’s The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, not an actual prince.
“Well what about Prince of Persia?”
If you watch movie adaptations to video games that don’t involve Resident Evil, you can leave now.
“Well–” No, I’m serious. Get out.

  1. You heard Fox. Everyone who has seen the Pokemon movie has to leave. (And also me since I’ve seen Super Mario Brothers and Mortal Kombat).

    Oh, wait! Fox has no actual power over where I point my web browser. *thumbs nose* thbbbbbbt!

    But Fox *does* have the power to edit my post and make me say dopey things! Durrr 😀
    I hereby declare myself Lord Doofus of Spoketoosoon!

    1. To be fair, the movies are more based off the cartoon than the games, so they aren’t strictly movie adaptations of video games.

    2. It’s the other way around the video games are based off the Movies/anime that are based off of the Card game.

      1. I can affirm that the Pokemon video games are based off the movies, at least a little. For example, in the games Golurk can learn Fly simply because it used it in a movie.

  2. I just went on a 20 minute internet search for medieval kings and princes with goatees, and fox is right, no royalty every seemed to have a goatee. The goatee did seem to be popular with Asian cultures though, take for example, Confucius. Today has been a sad day for the world.

    1. Charles I, quite a few Saudi royals (e.g. Abdullah, Salman), and Lenin had goatees to name a few. So does “Uncle Sam” (while not exactly royalty, he is a personification of a nation, so that’s sort of close).

      1. I guess I missed the “medieval” part.

        However, there is Richard I – sometimes portrayed with a goatee.

        Unless you consider a van dyke not a goatee even though it includes one.

  3. when I was a kid I wanted a goatee because of a wrestler by the name of jim “the anvil” nightheart. just loved the way he would stroke it sometimes when he was thinking.

    1. One half of The Hart Foundation with Bret “The Hitman” Hart! I loved his menacing, if not malevolent, laugh!

  4. I don’t do facial hair; itches too much.

    Which is funny because I can grow a really nice beard.

  5. What about an evil prince, Fox? From what I’ve read in previous comics, you DO have an evil side to you …

  6. Goatees in movies… Huhh.
    Movies? I remember those… I think…
    The last movie I saw in a theater was “Waterworld.”

    Since then, if i happen to be visiting someone who has cable or satellite TV I’ll occasionally see part of a movie. I guess goatees are still part of the “Ming the Merciless” outfit though.

  7. That’s because it wasn’t the princes that had the goatees it was the kings. But fox just wants to be a young boy again I get it :p

  8. Well, there are better known villains with goatees; but, I’ve seen several paintings of princes wearing goatees. (I just can’t remember which ones they were.) I guess the evilness of the look goes with the evilness of the hairless face.

  9. you need to curl the mustachios to make it less villainous

    also works well for the top hat combo

  10. I am confused as to why being a villain is a bad thing. I guess in most pop-culture he dies, but who said pop-culture resembled real-life?

  11. A reminder that the Prince of Prince of Persia had a goatee in the video games as well. Not sure about the 8bit ones, but in the newer 3d ones he did.

    1. True, but that version of the Prince kinda started out as the villian. If you recall, the game starts with the Prince invading another kingdom with his father’s army, and stealing the Dagger of Time.

    2. I watched the Prince of Persia movie, I loved it and I’m not leaving. You’ll have to carry me out, you hear me! You’ll have to carry me!

        1. True. But, Fox’s comment about the goatee was that only evil people wore them. Of course, he also asked about any princes that wore them. So, I guess this could go either way.

          1. If we go by assassins creed lore, ezio auditore was the man which the book The Prince by Machiavelli was based on and he had a goatee

  12. I fail to see the problem with Fox having a goatee. I mean, sure, it’s an outward manifestation of his personality that might give the game away, but even so… ;-]
