The Gang of Five

It certainly has been a crazy year, hasn’t it?  Well, thankfully, a new year is upon us and here at the Gang of Five forum we have a new year of showcases, prompts, and themes to get the new year started in the right way.  We wish you all a happy new year, and we look forward to what you have in store for us this year!

For the month of January we have a new character showcase.  Please warmly welcome Littlefoot's Mother! :)littlefoot The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the December and January prompts for the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

Does Red Claw remind you of Scar?

Scar:




Red Claw:





They do look similar.  Mainly with the scar on the eye and fact that they are both evil carnivores.    (Are Red Claw and Chomper actually related?)  

I noticed their similarities when looking at a Lion King video clip.

Stories are swarming with scarred or otherwise maimed evildoers. Apart from those named here we got Scarface (a bluefox) in the animals of farthing wood, we got General Woundworth in Watership Down, scars or mutaliations seem to be almost a precondition to villains in the Marvel Universe or many science fiction franchises. A scar and a taste for meat are a very superficial similarity for villains. But also in the story plots similarities between brother murdering ursurper to a throne and random maimed sharptooth of undisclosed background and motivations seem either nonexistend (no monarchies in LBT) or speculative only.
Even from outward appearance alone I cannot say I see much of a similarity between these two characters. Entirely different species, different colors, different look of the scars...
