    Isn’t that Mike Medusa from Monsters Inc?

    First off, isn’t the guy who CHOSE to draw a Beholder from D&D the bigger geek than the guy who recognized it? :) Also…for bonus points, it could be the Beholder-like creature in “Big Trouble in Little China,” or Joan Rivers. Either answer is acceptable.

  3. Tiana

    Love it!

    Oooohhh I had NO idea. I thought he looked a bit like that big floating round monster guy from Doom 2. But then I remembered he had 2 eyes, I think, and none of the other eyes.

    Jack Burton would be ..well..trying to kill it but that’s another story.

  6. Pixie

    I’m guessing Big Trouble in Little China.

  7. Roland

    bout to stick a sword through his main eye before Lo Pan knows I’m here!

    Unlike many other D&D monsters, the Beholder is an original creation for the game and as it is not based on a creature from mythology or other fiction. Rob Kuntz’s brother Terry thought up the beholder, and Gary Gygax detailed it for publication. With the release of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st edition, the beholder appeared in the first edition Monster Manual (1977), where it is described as a hateful, aggressive, avaricious spherical monster that is most frequently found underground. :-) I got this info from Wikipedia so you know it’s the truth!

    @TOM: I would say its pretty equal…

    Ha, Ha!! This is awesome. Big Trouble In Little China is one of my all time favorite movies.

    Just remember what old Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, the poison arrows fall from the sky and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right in the eye and says “Give me your best shot. I can take it.”

    It’s a Beholder!! I am such a nerd! And one of those weird female nerds that people hear about but never see on top of it!

    @Tom, I am with TheCheckeredMan…it’s pretty equal.

  11. Trebor

    I’m reminded of “Bob the Beholder of YAFGC”, personally

  12. Tim

    Phew… I didn’t know. This clearly precludes me from any Nerd Affiliation *wipes brow – pushes glasses back onto bridge of nose, snorting*

  13. Lesbosaurus

    Perceived nerdiness is in the eye of the BEHOLDER~!
