The Gang of Five
It is quite fitting that the sweltering hot days of July arrive right when the gang confront the barrens of the Mysterious Beyond in the fifth film showcase.  It is almost like us admins planned it that way or something.  :bestsharptooth

This month in the Monthly Showcase we are featuring the Land Before Time V.  Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in that topic.  Additionally, there is a new fanfiction prompt challenge for the months of June July, please check out this topic for more information.

"Where there's a will, there's a way...or a pulled muscle."

----------------

In this topic please feel free to discuss Archie as a character, to share your own creations (fanfics or fanart) concerning this character, or to mention some of your favorite fanworks of others involving him.  For a full set of rules please see the 2021 Monthly Character Showcase topic but keep in mind that this is meant to be fun as opposed to any sort of contest.

I will go ahead and get the discussion started with the following questions:


1. As strong as Archie's flappy arms are, could he possibly lift the gang's plot armor?

2. On a more serious note, what are your general thoughts about Archie as a character?


Go ahead and check out my fanfictions, The Seven Hunters, Songs of the Hunters, and Menders Tale.

 :rainbowwave Hi Archie. You had no point of being in the film. Or at least that's what other people say.

I love the Yellow Bellies.

Archie will always have a tiny place in my heart, at least; he might not be the highlight of his movie, but he's still pretty cool.

Spoiler: ShowHide
He's also the star of my personal favorite reaction image to have come out of the entire series, so bonus points in that regard




1.) Never. Not in a million years.

2.) What I said above is a good summation of what I think of him; he isn't super deep or interesting (his existence brings up the question of what a sea turtle is doing in a mountain cave but that's a question for another time), but he's a cool old guy with a great voice and some fun lines.

1.) Absolutely not. Studies have proven that the Gang's plot armor is one of the heaviest substances in existence, comparable to the average neutron star! :wow

2.) Archie is alright. I guess I've never been "for" or "against" him, necessarily. He's one of those characters who's just there. As a kid (and even now) I had a tendency to forget that he existed until I watched the movie again. :p I remember being annoyed with LBT 4 when I was younger for having so many non-dinosaur creatures in it. Archie, Tickles, Ichy, Dil...not exactly what I was looking for as a kid.

I have just realized Archie looks pretty small for a Archelon.
I love the Yellow Bellies.
