You'll always have Zoidberg

#1 Postby Sitting Duck » Mon Oct 27, 2008 7:54 am

Currently I'm working on writing up profiles for the cast of Futurama and would like an opinion. I'm planning to assign Zoidberg a minor Delusional Hindrance. However, I'm a bit uncertain as to how it should be described. Would you say he has an inferiority complex or a persecution complex?

Delusion (Minor): Thinks he's a doctor. XD

Though more seriously, I'd say that Zoidberg's delusional nature shifts from episode to episode. In some, he's moderately paranoid, in others he's got an inferiority complex, and in that one episode, he just adopts Amy's family. I'd just call it "Minor Delusion: Comedic Schizophrenia" or something similar; he doesn't have any specific delusion, he's just generally speaking vaguely delusional about everything, which shifts with time.

And I would definitely give him Clueless.

Can I suggest giving him the Dodge edge, perhaps renamed as Scuttle? "wooob woob woob woob woob!"
I once shot a man just to watch him die... but then I got distracted and missed it.

I like that angle.

I like that.

I'd have to finish going through my DVD sets first, but I'm thinking that might be more Fleet-Footed.
