Fridge Brilliance

  • The Sushi Knife of Doom in Munchkin Cthulhu. At first you wonder why a sushi knife gets to be so doomy. Then you realize that nearly all sushi is composed of seafood, and that many of Lovecraft's monsters were reminiscent of sea creatures (he had a deep fear of the sea) and that in Lovecraft Lite and Flanderized works (like, I don't know, Munchkin Cthulhu), eldritch abominations are nearly always tentacle monsters.
  • Absolutely best is the strongest monster of all, Plutonium Dragon. Which is, of course parody of the Platinum Dragon (Bahamut) in AD&D.

How well does it match the trope?
