4 Responses to “10 Things On The NES That I Really Didn’t Need To See”

Good article, however the cat anus isn’t the only instance of animal sphincters appearing in NES games… There’s also one on the pigs in Startropics. (bottom right corner)

Strange how a single, solitary pixel on a sprite can conjure up such unpleasant images… I’m not sure why the artists thought “Hm, this is really missing something… I know, gotta give ’em sphincters! People will be confused how these make-believe video game animals poop if I don’t add one!”

I was quick to qualify that it was the sole appearance with “as best as I can remember”. I figured there was probably at least one other instance that I was forgetting, and as it turns out there was. Both StarTropics games, actually, feature this. I will be updating the article soon to make reference to this.

Some things cannot be unseen once you see them.
