The Toaster is on Fire! - What is it with Toads and fire anyway?

A little known fact about Lt. Surge is that he was a member of GI Joe. Which, yes, means that Cobra Commander had an Arbok! XD

Well, Lt. Surge is stated in the games to be "the lightning American", so it works.

*Ahem* Anyways, just as CapedLuigisYoshi said, Lt. Surge is the "Lightning American" as the sign next to his gym said in Pokemon Red and Blue.

Therefore he's basically the Japanese idea of what an American soldier is like.

Giovanni was a ground-type gym leader.
He had a Rhyhorn, Nidoking, and Rhydon.

how are their going to that fire out?

@ Hero

He also had persian and a couple of other team rocket favorites. I just put Normal cause it was easier. And Nidoking is actually considered a grass type. *nibbles a cookie*

Now I want to see Commander Cobra in this comic...

Knowing is half the battle, and in the GI Joe universe, the other half is unnecessarily large amounts of missiles.

@ Yamataro

I thought that Nidoking and Nidoqueen were poison/rock types.

Theres still a fire and everyones happy!:D

posted by Fazer on July 9th, 2009, 4:55 pm


Nidoqueen/king are Poison-Ground types. Giovanni is a Ground-type leader.

posted by CapedLuigisYoshi on July 10th, 2009, 12:22 am


Actually hes a bit of a Ground and Normal type user... Considering that freaking Kangaskhan...

You know it' not surprising that LT. Surge was American because he was an A-hole in the show. (Little known fact! The Japanese Hate us! And Weaboos only make it worse.)

posted by ZevVeli on July 11th, 2009, 6:09 am


I'm guessing the other half of the battle is...violence? ^^;
I could be wrong.

posted by Butterscotch on July 14th, 2009, 9:26 am


The japanese are fascinated by our culture.
They don't hate us at all (At least the younger generation)

Try explaining all the USA references in Anime.

(They may think we are a bunch of awesome A-Holes though. You know the kind that a jerks but you still like them dispite of that...)
