* IncrediblyLamePun: Delphineus makes these like they're going out of style.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Flesh-Eater seems to have brutally killed the pirate crew who harpooned Cetus.


Added DiffLines:

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Flesh-Eater isn't really responsible for his actions, given that his mind has been mutated by toxic waste. It's suggested that once the poison is removed, he may return to being a harmless manta.

In the first game, ''"The Search for Cetus"'', Adam meets a talking Dolphin that's been nursed back to health at a Marine Biological Institution after being trapped in a fishing net. He releases the dolphin back into the wild, but the dolphin later comes back to request his aid. Adam travels to an underwater kingdom, consisting mostly of ancient grecian ruins, and populated by a wide variety of talking marine life (anything from manatees to clownfish seem to be able to hold an intelligent conversation here). It appears that the ruler of this kingdom, an old and wise sperm whale, has gone missing, and Adam must find him. To make matters worse, a gigantic manta ray mutated by a hidden underwater radioactive waste dump, has been terrorizing the kingdom and must be stopped.
