  • Hi DT here, I've noticed the last software has made it possible again for users to change their own usernames, but now with a new functionality allowing staff to approve or reject the change as it goes through. This has the potential to save a bit of hassle for everybody; however, in order for it to be worth leaving on it will need to not be abused. I request that all users continue to fulfill the general expectation of only requesting a new handle very occasionally, e.g. to fit in line with what they now use in most other places. The next while-ish will be treated as a trial period to gauge whether or not to keep it this way or change it back again (again).

Is Puu Black related to Balrog?

It's kind of a simple answer- Sure, they look the same. But if you wanted a deeper connection, every re-release of Cave Story made by Nicalis has Balrog call Jenka his aunt, in some format of the term. That doesn't exactly seem like a taunt, and if there is truth to that statement, that would raise a few points.
  1. Balrog and Jenka have a connection as family.
  2. Balrog and Misery are cousins. Recall that Jenka and Ballos are siblings.
  3. Ballos is probably Balrog's father.
But then that raises a small contradiction: In every version of Cave Story, Ballos mentions that both his wife and children were killed by his magical tyranny. So if it were true that Balrog were the nephew of Jenka, he would have had to survive that. For the sake of entertaining this idea, let's say he did that somehow. That still leaves dead children and a dead wife. Which would raise even more points.
  1. Puu Black looks like Balrog.
  2. The only way this thing described in-game is as a ghost.
  3. It inhabits the Island.
Sure, it seems like a really far-fetched coincidence, but Balrog and Puu Black might be siblings.

To my knowledge the terms "aunt" and "uncle" aren't exclusively used for family members.
