Bananaman

Post by Amicus » Thu Jan 03, 2019 4:05 am

Name: Lucas Gray
Age: 45
Height: 6'
Alias: Bananaman
Theme song:
[youtube]https://youtu.be/yModCU1OVHY[/youtube]

Lucas had a relatively average life, he was relatively intelligent, good enough at math to become an accountant. However, this was not a job he would get to enjoy for long. Just with his second client did things start going bananas. The man was clearly a bit insane and Lucas couldn't make heads or tails of his numbers. One day the man just laughed his head off then seemed to just start weeping before vanishing. That very night Lucas found himself singing at a neighbor in his apartment building who was totally enthralled while Lucas handed off bananas to every Tom Dick and Harry passing by. And thus banana man came into existence. Lucas has absolutely zero idea where he came from or what in the world he is, just that he seems to have a completely unlimited amount of bananas and a very unusual hold on the concept of reality.

What is bananaman you may ask? Who knows, avatar of bananas, a lone banana spirit, a state of being(!?)

Abilities:
Lucas Gray:
Basic human. Somewhat intelligent, good accountant. No other notable skills.

Bananaman appearance:

Bananaman:
-BANANAS!: Do you want a banana? DO you want TEN bananas! Maybe a TRUCK of bananas! He will give you bananas! You will eat the bananas! BANANAS!

Bananaman can seemingly spawn an infinite amount of bananas, whether just to his hands, out of his coat, out of someone else coat or random location. These bananas seem to be regular bananas in every other way except that they are very delicious and very captivating.
-Sing and dance!: Everybody likes to sing and dance! Don't like to sing and dance? You do now! [spoiler]Bananaman may sing lyrics that may make complete sense to one person and none to another, they may not even be in a real language. But they will be catchy! He sometimes dances too, want to dance with him, he'll totally let you, just hope he doesn't go for another hour or so. Letting yourself get completely enthralled by his theatrics however and you may find yourself in a mad house or in a hospital after choking on a banana...if you wake up. Weak willed individuals are most prone to this.[/spoiler]
-Boom! Bananaman is here!: Bananaman may appear at any time! Bananaman does not discriminate!
-Here, there, anywhere!: Bananaman has no time for your silly car ride! Bananaman will go straight to your local alleyway!

-Who needs a tv, watch banana man live!: Bananman may appear on paintings, pictures, mirrors, or your local shop window! Sing and dance with banana man till your heart runs free!

-Sing with me: Bananaman may animate nearby animal pictures, statues, or made creations to sing with him for added effect!
-Bananaman is never mundane: Be very happy or very sad! Don't be such a normal!

-Eat a banana!: Bananas are grand! Bananas are great! Eat, eat, eat!

-Run banana run!: Bananaman get away from men in white coats! Drop a banana! You slip! HAHAHA!

Bananaman peelings are extremely slippery and like to end move under passing peoples feet.
-Don't hurt bananaman!: Why would you hurt banana man? Bananaman give you banana!

-Spirit game!: You speak spirit name while dance near fire! Spirit spirit spirit!

What he is: I may not clarify as much on this, I wasn't sure I would at all but I want to have it out here. If his race would answer honestly they might refer to themselves as spirits of a kind, they vary greatly from individual to individual in their abilities but most end up with a choice on a particular thing which often effects their abilities once they either take another beings body or by some other means become physical. In Bananamans case it was, as you might guess, bananas for some reason. Though this can change, they will still keep many of the same aspects as their original choice. Bananaman himself is not actually very powerful for his species but his abilities do permit specific advantages because of the way he viewed bananas, which is often in a chaotic or insane manner.

Spirit information

The name: He had a name before Bananaman. However Bananaman is the name he chooses to go by most of the time.


Language: By technicality he can speak any language he has learned or caught from someone he possessed. He can quickly understand new languages. But when unaware of a local language he may speak in his own language or just a random other one. However, even if he speaks in his own language, he may allow some people to actually still understand it in some way.

A matter of looks: In all technicality he could look like a completely normal version of the species he has possessed. However he has the ability to alter colors and create absurdities with their features, as he does, and simply prefers to stick with an absurd look presently.

Teleportation and reflective surfaces:
There are two parts of teleportation for him. The initial teleportation is relatively easy as he can do it mostly at any time, however the exit of teleporting is always in an obscured area, or a reflective surface he could crawl through. He can enter and leave any reflective surface so long as it fits his size, if only a hand fits, only a hand can reach through. While on reflective surfaces he also can show a great deal more, essentially being able to control whatever the reflective surface may appear to have, though this could not be used to create a laser or anything of the sort, it is just a visual effect. It also doesn't work when there's complete darkness. However he can also appear on surfaces on might draw on if they are relatively smooth.

The actual bananas: He can pull bananas basically out of nowhere of slightly varying sizes. He can also make them pop out of obscured locations or reflective surfaces. These bananas are all very delicious and often very enticing, especially after having had one. However eating a good few of them actually is very risky as they are extremely likely to get stuck after a few and choke someone. If someone were to be able to test for it, they'd find these bananas always seem to be almost exactly the same just in different sizes.

The singing: Singing will often cause mood swings or at least mood influence on people. The average willed individual would be easily swayed by it, following the mood of his song very easily and being entirely entranced quickly. However those with peculiar mindsets, perception, or wills, may be much less effected. Doing this and dancing long enough can even cause insanity in some.

Rhyming: Not so much an ability as just something he does. He is not required too in anyway, it is just something that amuses him.

Dancing: When both singing and dancing his abilities grow a good deal stronger and he may enchant a great deal of people into his songs.

Animating objects: Primarily he can just do this with things that already resemble things that are meant to appear alive in some way. However a skeleton or tree with a face could also be animated. Usually all they can do is sing with him.

Possession: Bananaman can make a choice of an individual to possess essentially. It is only by doing this that he can fully interact with the world. It is also why he chose Lucas as he is not nearly the strongest of wills himself, meaning he had to choose a weak enough individual. However were he not to be possessing someone he could appear without any need of any surfaces. This ability also takes part in deciding the level of his physical abilities and appearance, choosing Lucas means he has closer to human physical capability even if he can enhance it somewhat.

The single hit: An injury that could knock him out, kill him, or permanently injure him, will cause Bananaman to temporarily lose all control over Lucas's body but at the same time will leave Lucas completely unharmed. Drowning, electrocution, suffocation, these all can cause the same thing.

Physical abilities: Bananaman doesn't actual possess that many great physical strengths. While he is certainly faster and then most humans and fairly agile, and has plenty of stamina, he's not any stronger then Lucas is.

Spirit Game: Strangley, among spirits, Bananaman can temporarily give life to some of them without having to give them bodies. Strengthening them by dancing around a fire and singing their names. The more people who cooperate and the bigger the fire the more power he can give them. While temporary, it is often enough for them to control a certain thing which they specialize in. One of those he most often brings about can effect the weather, particularly thunderstorms and clouds. While there are others he can summon, he doesn't often do so.

The Thundercloud: Usually can't stay around for more then thirty minutes but can offer very good cover with heavy rain or fog. After a minute or so of forming them he can get out a few well placed lightning bolts. He is rather difficult to get rid of but he also doesn't actually have that much power and when he's the one preparing a lightning bolt it usually lights up wherever it's about to strike a second before it goes.

Birdy Birdy: Actually there are around eight spirits he's friends with that take some kind of bird form usually. They have considerable influence over most birds and are prone to variations of shapeshifting, they also tend to talk and like to sing along with Bananaman mostly because most of them are as amused with him as he is with himself. They tend to stick around awhile but may vanish if "damaged" as if a normal bird could be damaged. Though they are much faster and prone to moving through walls.

Monkeyboy: Appears...like a monkey/human most of the time. Yup, he's weird, he'll sing and dance too but he's also incredibly violent and prone to tearing limbs off. He's more physically tangible then the birds or the thundercloud and can actually feel pain if damaged. But is more difficult to harm as well. He can stick around for days without Bananaman having to call on him again but he also can be taken down with most standard weaponry and is actually not all that powerful compared to other spirits, even less then Bananaman is comparatively.

The fox: There really isn't a good reason he brings The Fox out. It's not violent or helpful like the others and usually just crawls up near other creatures. It's actually pretty powerful comparatively, but when attacked usually just vanishes rather then actually fighting. Though immensely swift and agile, and actually very difficult to hurt as well as possessing unusual magical powers, the Fox is gentle and tame. And dislikes actually being forced into conflict without reason.

These are only some of the spirits he summons, some are weaker, some are stronger, some aren't even really allies but people he just likes messing with because, as he has a host and they do not, he is capable of pulling them from the spirit world himself.

to make the spoilers work properly. They don't work without some sort of title text. It can just be a period if you want it to be.

Do you see bananaman
Hopping over on the white hot sand
I look in the water and fear what I see
I know it's no stranger but I know it's not me
My life is a lie that was uttered in jest
If I can't change at all, let me rest

Added some extra clarification things. (Though I probably won't bother with them for the threads I am currently in with him if it would effect it much.) Just wanted to put them there.
