What the heck is Balrog?

on a more serious note after rewatching the video for the 7th time, you're right. But my main proof that balrog is soap is that his projectile attacks(excluding missiles) happen to be clean bubbles and the same goes for Puu and Puu Black
The soap based influence could extend to attacks, but that still doesn't suggest anything beyond influence. Plus Balrog isn't directly influenced by soap, but by Puus, which were originally influenced by soap. Additionally.. is quote made of soap? He could shoot bubbles last I checked. I can make bubbles. Am I soap?

My point is that the reason why this thread has been going on for so long is because a definitive answer has never emerged. Flying cars will hit public production long before we figure out what Balrog is.

I'm pretty sure most of everyone on the forums is aware of your soapy status, andwhy.

Speaking of soap, Pixel's made at least 2 games with soap themes in them (Cave Story with the puus and Soaprun with "Soap" in the title). Does pixel have an obsession with this cleansing substance?

Hmm, the soap I use looks more like this.

In fact, I don't see a lot of square-shaped soap anymore. Where I live, they seem to make em' all curved or oval-shaped.

The arms look more like the toaster handle and lever, if anything. Hmm, does Pixel put soap in his toaster?

Wow. What the heck was that?

Jk but still I find that funny.

Anyways if he does, it would be all hot and stuff and therefore be called "molten lava soap."

I always saw Balrog as a walking luggage bad that can fly when I first started playing CaveStory, and now I perceive him as a flying toaster. What more could you ask for in the imagination department.

Balrog is Balrog. He may be inspired by some designs, but in game, he is a robot made by some person. I don't know if toasters are even shaped the same way in Japan.

I found a picture of one:
It kinda resembles Balrog, if you imagine the sliders as his arms. Then just slap some legs and a little face on there, and WHAM.

Does it the toaster shoot rockets? Can it fly and talk?

The toast does seem to rocket upward whenever it's ready to be eaten.

It would be most correct to assume so sir
Much like the Japanese innovation that is the toilet they come with their own personal seat warmers and built in MP3 players

Balrog may be related to dr gero and the nurse in some way, they have similar shapes, the dr and nurse are frogs, like balfrog, also puu black, meaning he may be that species and was cursed to be a robot, he would most likely be a nurse
