Ahh, Kingdra, Kingdra, Kingdra. I promised myself I'd try to keep the Pokemon commentating to a minimum to keep this topic more art that's so bad it's good and less ITT I briefly comment on every Pokemon. Even though you people seem to like that (should I continue?). But boy, at any rate, do I have a lot to say about Kingdra.
As established, when I heard Seadra was getting an evolution, I was like "fuck yeah!" Seadra was one of the Pokemon I used in Pokemon Stadium, alongside Dugtrio and Mewtwo, to conquer the Prime Cup and Gym Leader Castle in both rounds. And hey, Seadra's pretty damn sweet. You got this really generic seahorse, but then it evolves into this badass seahorse with spikes, an intimidating body shape, and a look on its face that says "fuck you, you're going down". What could possibly go wrong?
Well, lots of things actually, but this is the end result, and oh man. Did it go wrong. What I liked so much about Seadra is how solidly built it looked, for lack of any better term. You give it a whack, and it probably won't even flinch. But this thing looks so skinny that it's almost impossible to take it seriously. The "wings" are another problem. Seadra's were tough looking, to the point of where it looked like it could impale shit on them. But Kingdra's barely constitute that. In fact, they look more like dead skin than anything else.
Finally, you come to the head of the matter. Horsea had that cute factor going on. Seadra has the "don't fuck with me" factor. What does Kingdra got? It looks like it's perpetually tired. Fuck you Kingdra, you miserable pile of shit.
