The trope persists even when Zoofights 4 introduced Tunguska, an alien queen, and in Zoofights 5, which brought in Blood 4 Oil, a giant mosquito. Only female mosquitoes suck blood. Blood 4 Oil sucks blood. [[CriticalResearchFailure Still called a "he"]]. Update: It took until Round 2, but Major Failure did realize, yes, Blood 4 Oil[=/=][[Film/ThereWillBeBlood DRAAAAAAINAGE]][=/=][[PunnyName Brutish Petroleum]] ''is'' female.

---> '''Gravitas Shortfall''' (on whether Lesko, [[SonicTheHedgehog Robotnik]], and the two [[Series/DoctorWho Doctors]] should continue their roleplay rivalry, and one of them got snippy): I'm sorry you think that MF taking time out from organising and drawing three fights in the week ''before he has to get married'' is a dick move. I know it must be ''terribly'' hard on you.
