But the part that always ends up hitting me hardest is how bad you feel for the Pigmasks. It's a little thing, but it's there all the time. They're that group of fanatical followers of evil you see in a lot of games that you're not normally supposed to care about hurting - you almost never see their faces, they don't have names, they spawn the same way monsters do.
But they're scared and confused from the very first encounter, and they're childishly thrilled to get to wear these goofy outfits, and they love kids. Lucas keeps infiltrating them with the aim of destroying their organization, and they're so trusting and enthusiastic that it works immediately even when they don't mistake him for the Masked Man - they think every little boy wants to be a Pigmask when he grows up! They're so cool and they have so much fun! The worst part is how protective they are of him during the chimera segment, while that creepy music with the terrified oinks is playing.
I avoid fighting them whenever possible, basically. Follow your dreams, pig-furry cultists.
At some point Steven’s going to have to fuse with Lapis and majestically spray healing spit all over the aftermath of some violent cataclysm.
It is straight-up unavoidable that Slappis Looniverse do some shoujo-manga healing-magic nonsense with their gigantic wagging tongue, outlined by cool light and surrounded by a shower of rose petals.
They look like Wakko Warner and Amethyst doesn’t know how to handle these strange new feelings she’s having.
