http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/MM.gif [[caption-width:192:Parasitic insects have never been so huggable.]] In one of the strangest games of any generation, the player controls Mister Mosquito, an adorable blood-sucker who's invaded the Yamada family home with the intent of gathering enough of the red stuff to last him through the winter. The game is divided into 12 stages or "days", and the player is briefed at the beginning of each on who to suck how much blood from, as well as on any possible dangers. Blood can only be sucked from designated areas of the body (depending on the stage), and these spots are only exposed at certain times as the gigantic family members go about their everyday business. Some of these areas are simply exposed during their looping set of movements, but others require the player to manpulate their human prey first (by doing things such as turning off the T.V.). Each victim also has a "stress meter" that rises if you suck blood too fast, too slow, or too long, or if you simply buzz around in their faces too much. If you're flying around when the meter hits its max, you'll enter a battle and have to strike certain "pressure points" on the victim's body to calm them back down. If the meter hits its max while you're sucking blood, you're swatted dead. Instantly. Had a sequel that was only released in Japan due to the first game's poor sales in the States. ---- '''This series provides examples of:''' * AnimalGenderBender: In real life, only female mosquitoes drink blood. * ArtificialAtmosphericActions * CollectionSidequest: The EX blood tanks. * CosmeticAward: There are several unlockable skins for the titular mosquito, including [[PaletteSwap a rainbow of various colors]], a realistic mosquito, and [[NightmareFuel mosquito versions of the human parents]]. * [[spoiler: CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass]]: On stage 11, Kenichi [[spoiler: can suddenly pull of street fighter moves that can instantly kill you unless you have at least one health upgrade.]] * DeadlyWalls: Certain levels has pesticide sprayed in parts of the level. This can include furniture. * DontTryThisAtHome: The game informs you that Pesticide should '''NOT''' be used the way the game depicts it. * DysfunctionalFamily: The Yamada Family. [[spoiler: [[BadassFamily Until the three of the last four levels.]] ]] ** BumblingDad: Kenichi ** BrattyTeenageDaughter: Rena ** WomenAreWiser: Kaneyo, though not entirely played straight. * EscalatingWar: What starts as a simple annoyance at the mosquito eventually results in [[spoiler: the father taking on the bug with ''mystic fireball attacks''. ]] * FanService: Stage 4 has Rena in a bathtub. [[WingdingEyes Mister Mosquito seems to like this.]] ** Stage 8 has Rena's [[IdleRich rich friend: Ayaka]], who apparently has never been bit in her life. The opening line of the stage? [[InnocentInnuendo Suck Everywhere!]] * FootFocus - [[http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/bigboxshots/1/551241_21921_front.jpg The Japanese cover art]]. Not to mention the fact that the player can fly very close to the humans' feet in their quest for blood. * InterspeciesRomance: The manual explained that Mister Mosquito is in love with Rena. Though, obviously, [[StalkerWithACrush that never gets requited]]. * InsectGenderBender: For those who don't know, male mosquitoes do not suck blood. * MacroZone: The entire game. * [[MrExposition MsExposition]]: A female narrator spouts out lengthy exposition at the introduction in rather great detail. She also describes each level you have selected. * NewGamePlus: Collecting and filling all the EX tanks lets you play through a more challenging second year in the Yamada home with all of your unlocked skins. * NonLethalKO: The final boss battles. Yes, the game ends with a quarter-inch insect KO-ing an entire human family. * [[OneLetterTitle One Kanji Title]]: The game is simply called ''Ka'' (Japanese for "mosquito") in Japan. * RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Probably the only cute insect in existence. * SchmuckBait: A load of [[HeartContainer heart rings]] can be found inside the microwave, which the mother closes after ten seconds if the player flies inside. [[LostForever That also happens to be your only chance of getting them too.]] ** Stage 11 is worse, where containers and collectibles are located close to furniture and walls that are [[DeadlyWalls deadly to the touch due to pesticide!]] * StealthBasedMission: Everything but the last four stages, in that being seen should be avoided. * [[spoiler: TookALevelInBadass]]: The three levels before the final has [[spoiler: the [[BadassFamily Yamada family literally ''fighting a mosquito!'']] [[ThatOneBoss Kenichi especially.]] ]] * TimedBasedMission: Stage 4 and 12 is this. [[spoiler: The latter is more forgiving though.]] * VideoGameFlight: Mister Mosquito is ''always'' flying. That is, when he's not latched on to a person's skin. * GiantFootOfStomping: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gslF5G5erE One of the many ways you can die in this game.]] ---- <<|MiscellaneousGames|>>

* SoBadItsGood: Not the game itself, but the voice acting. It's so poorly dubbed, it's actually funny to listen to.

* FetishFuel: To the extreme. At one point, you suck blood from a girl taking a bath (though the water is opaque, so nothing is actually exposed). ** Just listen to some of the sounds girls make when their blood is getting sucked.
