Fascinating picture. Glad they finally came across it again.

They are huge, but beautiful!!! :)

That is one strange looking fish. It looks like something out of a video game, some kind of "moon fish" or whatever. That big round eye on that huge body gives an almost anime style design quality to the fish's look.

They are quite a remarkable creature these fish. Interesting that you say it looks like it's from a video game Thoul. Does anybody here remember encountering the sunfish in Alex Kidd: The Enchanted Castle? I went and grabbed a screen capture just encase. :wink:

There's one in Link's Awakening as well.... and too many other games to count.

That is amazing!! Quite a good look alike in both posts above. I wonder how many other games something similar to this may be in.

Fantastic finds, Lucas and Brutus!!! :clap:

Woauh !!!!! xcellent one ! Very strange fish ! But seems to be majestuous in his white robe.
And the link to Alex Kidd is great ! As a big fan of SEGA and Alex Kidd, that is much greater !

In the fishing mini game in Okami, you can actually get this particular fish. The caricature in Okami actually captures the real fish decently well, though the coloration is different. I couldn't find an image, though. IT's a tough fish to real in...takes 3 power slashes, and it can easily pull you out into the water. But if you do get one, they sell for a good chunk of change.

Yes, I can remember it ! I've played Okami a long long time ago but it reminds me vaguely this sort of fish ! I've tried to find pictures of it in the game but to no avail, unfortunately..:(
If someone have it, don't hesitate to share it with us :)
