Ah yes, we finally saw the first four episodes of Netflix's
But more importantly, everyone's been commenting as to how the said squad lacks the aforementioned thief named Grant Danasty.
You know, the pirate looking bald dude.
But I think everyone else missed out on the more OBVIOUS clues that the show had been hinting
as early as the second episode. Our very keen Vania senses kinda picked up on quite a number of them hence here were a few of our own theories.
Nasty is of course NOT a reference to the wrestling duo THE NASTY BOYS
The unnamed priest even spun the said knife in a very fancy manner.
Sure, the fight with Trevor cost him an eye (quite literally) and a leg (ok,not really!).
Fast forward to Trevor's abduction scene.
Look at how everyone else holds their knives.
Everyone holds their knife in a "stabby"-pretending to be threatening sort of way.
There were also very deliberate attempts to isolate the shots so that he would look nice and
And here he is again,
His knife skills were a bit more slicker this time around.
But more importantly he never died in the said encounter.
After being blinded by an arrow, he just got push aside by Trevor.
and were killed by either spears or arrows.
And you could argue all you want as to how the bald priest looks nothing like the Grant from the NES version of things.

Well no shit, so does everyone else!
The main characters alone looks NOTHING like how they were supposed to be.
Definitely "Symphony" inspired.
The only design they got right was that of Sypha.
The priest costume is probably a front for his thief or pirate life.
So there you go. All four of them had made an appearance in the first season alone. Although we could say Grant's appearance was a little more subtle and cryptic than the rest.
So, not now, Grant Morrison!
The comedic aspects were nicely inserted as well.
And every priest and clergymen does look like a fat person's butt.
The short but memorable exchange between Lisa and Dracula was also a nice touch.
The bar room fight scene were a bit sluggish but both the Cyclops and Alucard scenes were OK.
And I understand how most fans might felt like the show was deliberately disregardeding the source material. For writing a story about a game could be quite difficult hence some (if not most)elements might be lost in the said translation.
But we would have preferred a more famous boss characters rather than the ones we did get.
So instead of this Cyclops,

And instead of these things,
they should've went with these things instead.
The show left us off at a cliffhanger. A very ONE PIECE-ish
Hopefully there would be more episodes for Season 2!
So here's to Trevor And The Gang!
And to you too, Bald Priest in question!
