Go To

The Monument Mythos is an Analog Horror series created by Alex Kansas. Combining the concept of analog horror with Alternate History, the series takes the form of Mockumentary videos focused around an America where things took a slightly different course, and where bizarre and unexplainable events occur near national landmarks like the Statue of Liberty or Mount Rushmore.

Of these videos, there includes:

    Season 1 
  • "LIBERTYLURKER", a look into the Statue of Liberty and the disappearances of immigrants that occurred near it.
  • "LINCOLNLOOKER", a video focusing on what happens to one person the President chooses to become a "Lincoln Looker".
  • "RUSHMOREREVENGE", a video that focuses on a week long examination of Mount Rushmore following threats of an "infection".
  • "ALCATRAZATTACK", a brief summary of the layout of Alcatraz, as well as bizarre anomalies related to it.
  • "AIRFORCEONEANGEL", a video that focuses on one time Air Force One took off in a bizarre flight pattern near national monuments.
  • "DEANDEMOCRACY", a look back on the presidential campaign of the 37th president of the United States, James Dean.
  • "WASHINGTONWORMHOLE", a video focusing on the history of the Washington Monument.
  • "DELAWAREDOUBLE", a news report talking about something strange in the Delaware River.
  • "ROCKEFELLERTREETRAGEDY", a video talking about what had happened with a tree intended to be at the Rockefeller Center on Christmas.
  • "CANYONCROWN", a video explaining a family's visit to the Grand Canyon.
  • "FREEDOMFALLER", a video focusing on the transportation of the Statue of Freedom from Italy to the United States.
    Season 2 
  • "MAIZEMOVIEMAKER", a video focusing on the formation of a company known as Maize, as well as the mass spread of personal computers.
  • "SUEZCANALCRAB", a video looking into an attempt to free the Evergiven from the Suez Canal.
  • "FALLENFATHER", a video in which the creator (the same one as in CANYONCROWN) encounters a squirrel.
  • "DEANDISASTER", a look back on a previous tragedy which was enacted by anarchists attempting to demonize President Dean.
  • "GIZAGUARDIAN", a video which talks about the formation of "Giza Glass", a strange material found only in Egypt.
  • "ROCKEFELLERREVELATION", a video in which John D. Rockefeller admits to some of the regrets he had in his life.
  • "STARRYSPHINX", a video that focuses on the excavation of the Pyramids in Egypt.
  • "WASHINGTONWONDERLAND", a story told by Virginia of what happened to her.
  • "AIRFORCEONEFALLENANGEL", a video that details the fate of the Air Force One Angel.
  • "LIBERTYLURKERS", a collection of interviews revealing the true reason why the Statue of Liberty and its sisters were constructed.

This series provides examples of:

  • Action Politician: Downplayed with James Dean. While he doesn't directly kick ass, he openly goes against any dissidents of his presidential campaign by helping fix powerlines in the Southeastern states in DEANDEMOCRACY as well as attempting to fix the carbon monoxide problems and the blaring sirens in DEANDISASTER.
  • Added Alliterative Appeal: Every video title makes use of alliteration. "DEANDISASTER", "ROCKEFELLERTREETRAGEDY", "STARRYSPHYNX", etc.
  • Adult Fear:
    • ROCKEFELLERTREETRAGEDY shows this in full, with Virginia and her friends having been taken by the tree to another universe, where their parents and family are all completely different from what they once knew.
    • FREEDOMFALLER has this, where Nina Crawford runs away from home to find her father and is brutally torn apart and incorporated into the Statue of Freedom.
  • Advertisement:
  • Allohistorical Allusion: The ADA storms the Capitol on January 6th (1977).
  • Alternate History: The series focuses not only on horror elements, but also how different the universe of the Monument Mythos is to ours. Besides what's discussed under Richard Nixon, the Used Car Salesman, there are many other differences too.
    • Martin Luther King Jr. survived the assassination attempt on his life, as did Robert Kennedy.
    • The Great Depression is avoided entirely due to Rockefeller's dealings with the Germans, who was the United States president at the time.
    • Hillary Clinton is president of the United States in 2021, and during that same revelation, she elects to resolve the incident regarding the stuck and obstructive Ever Given by using nuclear force in the Suez Canal to dislodge the ship.
    • President Dean nationalized the USA's entire tech industry under the Department of Technology which later morphed into Maize Machines. After a mysterious incident, all personal computers were banned. As a result, commercial technology is far more primitive in this timeline. TWTTR and Maize Movie Maker still exist, however, thanks to special machines designed to facilitate them. On the other hand, this universe has access to technology not at all realized in ours, with tech like heat rays being viable weapons in World War One, and refined and vehicle mounted versions are issued to riot police in the modern age.
    • Helen Keller would eventually get her hearing back, as she is one of the people seen in DEANDISASTER getting the special hearing implants once deaf people unaffiliated with the air siren scheme became eligible to receive them.
    • In ROCKFELLERTREETRAGEDY, Rockefeller's "very easy questions about American history" he asks Virginia and her friends reveals that America declared independence in 1786, Lincoln's iconic hat a bowler hat and George Washington chopped down an apple tree. That last detail turns out to be VERY important later on.
    • In AIRFORCEONEFALLENANGEL it's briefly mentioned that Al Gore is the president, meaning he won the 2000 election. Additionally, since 2003, the United States of America is now legally called the United Zones of America, which is divided into three states, and it's mentioned that a similar albeit unsuccessful unification happened in 1980.
    • LIBERTYLURKERS reveals that Washington actually chopped down a Special Tree and was transformed into the Liberty Lurker as a result of prolonged exposure to the dimensional interregnum that Virginia Arnoldson and the rest of the Washington Absentees spent time in.
    • LIBERTYLURKERS also establishes that the Statue of Progress, a planned predecessor to the Statue of Liberty meant to sit at the mouth of the Suez Canal, was built in their timeline instead of the Port Said Lighthouse. It appears to have been intended as a slaughterhouse for the Horned Serpent just like the Statue of Liberty.
  • Ancient Astronauts: Played with, it turns out that neither aliens nor anomalies ever built Pyramids after all. They built the Sphinx instead.
  • Angelic Abomination: The titular being in AIRFORCEONEANGEL is described as being like an angel, despite hardly looking the part.
  • Animalistic Abomination: The Suez Canal Crab and the Horned Serpent both apply for this, with the Suez Canal Crab being a gigantic crustacean with the Evergiven on top of it, while the Horned Serpent is a colossal electricity-producing snake that is large enough to cross the United States from West to East.
  • Another Story for Another Time: Part of GIZAGUARDIAN describes how Flinders Petrie managed to get samples of Giza Glass for the British Museum, only for him to accidentally separate his head from his body via the glass. Petrie's head begins to transform before the documentary moves on with the story, saying, "But the fate of Flinders Petrie is a tale for another day."
  • Arc Symbol:
    • Electricity seems to be a major symbol for disaster or anomalies in the series. For example, the Giza Glass is created by lightning, the Horned Serpent has electrical attributes, the Starry Sphinx assaults the camera with lightning in GIZAGUARDIAN, and the Special Trees produce lightning when they transport people to other dimensions.
    • Amusingly enough, actual Arcs. More specifically, things bending and bowing to form an Arc. The lights that composed the Starry Sphinx seemingly did exactly that before taking out the cameras, and more importantly, the Special Trees always bend over like this before they start sparking and warping space around them, even if they have to bend the whole structure they're in to do so.
  • Apocalyptic Log: Nina Crawford's diary is this, as she ends up being killed and fused into Freedom.
  • Benevolent Precursors: The Ancient Egyptians. The pharohs were aware of the threat of the Special Trees and did everything they could to subvert and contain them, using guardians armed with Giza Glass blades to "trim" them, building pyramids that extend infinitely downward to contain them, and either built or worked with the Sphinx to assist in containment and produce more glass.
  • Black-and-Gray Morality: On one hand, there's the US government, which actively sacrifices its own citizens to the anomalies, the president can trap someone of their choice inside the Lincoln memorial for their whole term/s, and lets not get into what they did with the Crowns. On the other hand, there's ADA, who, while opposing the governemnt, uses other malicious tactics like TV hijackings, commiting a terorist attack using air sirens, which deafend a large portion of the population, as well as indirectly causing the deaths of thousands by encouraging them to go to Egypt to reclaim their lost property, all the while there's a giant abomination there.
  • Botanical Abomination: The "Special Trees" are this. They're tall, branchless trees with the ability to teleport people to other dimensions by bending themselves to make a gateway. ROCKEFELLERTREETRAGEDY states that they aren't trees at all.
  • Cassandra Truth: The Government didn't even try to buy Maya Arnoldson's silence when she was accidentally made a Lincolnlooker, because they knew the idea of each president picking someone to imprison in Lincoln's monument for the entirety of their term would sound too ridiculous to believe. It took actual recorded proof for people to start believing it.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: Multiple times throughout the series is it made clear that humanity treats the current horrors plaguing the world like natural disasters more than a cosmic horror story, from LIBERTYLURKER stating that anyone whose family members disappeared on Ellis Island may be entitled to financial compensation, to the rather normal treatment Maya is given upon appearing in CANYONCROWN, to the fact that TWTTR users have more anger towards the American government for unleashing the Suez Canal Crab than fear for the crab itself in SUEZCANALCRAB.
  • Conveniently Interrupted Document: In ROCKEFELLERTREETRAGEDY a portion of one of the Virginia in Wonderland segment (I.E. the one scene actually taking place in "Wonderland") is cut short before Virginia could describe her initial encounter with the man she would call Everett. WASHINGTONWONDERLAND would eventually depict the event uncompromised.
  • Cosmic Horror Story: If it wasn't evident as soon as the first video, later videos make it clear that something with the world itself is wrong. There are nigh indestructible trees that act as gateways to different dimensions. Human sacrifice is performed daily to satiate anomalies near national monuments. A special glass exists that allows the cutting of human flesh while the cut pieces remain alive and well. Human history is extremely altered due to the existence of these anomalies as well, making everything feel off as more alterations become evident.
  • Dead Person Impersonation: The men who found the titular body in DELAWAREDOUBLE believe this to have been the case with George Washington, with the body found in the river being the real Washington and a lookalike having taken his place in history to avoid discouraging the fledgling nation. It seems their theory was correct (or at least someone in the government didn't want them talking about it for whatever reason), because the journal that aired the news story shut down the very next day.
  • Different States of America: By 2003, the United States of America is now legally called the United Zones of America which is divided into three zones called "Alcatraz Zone", "Rushmore Zone" and "Washington Zone", with it being mentioned that the original state borders are not expected to be restored within the century.
  • Divided States of America: The Advocates for the Division of America want to accomplish this by using The Angel as a walking atom bomb against the Horned Serpent in order to create a thousand states.
  • Dramatic Irony: The Statue of Freedom was made by Thomas Crawford to inspire hope in the enslaved and make them strive for freedom. The United States government uses it to slay any dissidents.
  • Eagle Land: This universe's America is an obvious Type 2, being a place where disturbing and often grotesque anomalies can claim the lives of many at any given moment and can be treated as commonplace, to the point where having a loved one go missing around the Statue of Liberty can have one be entitled to compensation.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: The 20th Washington Absentees were first featured in WASHINGTONWORMHOLE. One of them, specifically the woman in the middle, is revealed in WASHINGTONWONDERLAND to be an adult Virginia Arnoldson, who was officially introduced in ROCKERFELLERTREETRAGEDY.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The "True Forces of Mass Destruction", alluded to in multiple videos but not yet fully explained, appear to be this. The various entities that crop up around the monuments- including the Liberty Lurker, Alcatraz, and the "Special Tree"- seem to be examples; the Suez Canal Crab was being considered for this title as well.
    • James Dean confuses the issue a bit by applying the label to more mundane threats like global climate change and human life, indicating that it could be more of a general threat descriptor than one specifically for anomalous threats.
  • Eldritch Location:
    • Alcatraz doubles as this, being a single celled organism that also functions as an island. By 2020, Alcatraz has multiplied and consumed most of the West of the United States, only stopping at the Western parts of Texas.
    • Giza, where the Sphinx is currently surrounded by thousands of pyramids, each with an unknown number of “Special Trees” within.
    • As of WASHINGTONWONDERLAND, the “forests of the Washington Zone” (filled with “Special Trees”) may also be considered to be this.
  • Fate Worse than Death: This is the fate of anyone who's chosen as a Lincoln Looker, where they're trapped inside of the Lincoln Memorial for four (or in some cases eight) years and kept alive and immobile simply because they did something that infuriated the President.
  • Fictional Social Network: TWTTR is this, being an obvious alternate history version of Twitter.
  • Flayed Alive: After Freedom ends up growing flesh, the men in Gibraltar are forced to pull away ever single bit of her flesh in order to make her a presentable statue for the Americans.
  • Flesh Golem: Freedom ends up as this after killing Nina, and is shown doing it again during the anti-Dean riots in 1971.
  • Forbidden Fruit: Referenced by name in the ADA video "The Sinking Man and the Forbidden Fruit" in LIBERTYLURKERS. The video implies that the Special Tree acted as this to George Washington, even depicting it as a pomegranate tree (which is one of the likely candidates for what the "forbidden fruit" in the Garden of Eden was meant to be). Meanwhile, the traditional story of George Washington cutting down the cherry tree is replaced with one of an apple tree, indicating that the connection is more than just ADA biblical propaganda.
  • Fun with Subtitles: In GIZAGUARDIAN, at the direct moment of the video where Freedom cuts off Maya's head (11:53), turning on subtitles puts on a message that simply states "This could be you."
  • Giant Enemy Crab: The Suez Canal Crab is this. Possibly subverted on the "enemy" part, in that it's never actually shown doing anything hostile; while there are a great number of casualties attributed to it, these result from the aftermath of it tripping and falling and were not the result of any intentional action on the part of the Crab.
  • Gone Horribly Wrong: Upon receiving evidence that Alcatraz would reach the coastline and become a threat to the mainland by the year 2030, the government attempted to kill it off via radiation. All this did was give it the ability to multiply at a much faster rate, and by 2020 the entities have already eaten their way to west Texas.
  • Government Agency of Fiction: In the universe in which the series takes place in, James Dean establishes the United States Department of Technology, a move which unites all major American computer corporations to further improve technological advancement.
  • Graffiti of the Resistance: The ADA is shown doing this multiple times throughout the series, notably in RUSHMOREREVENGE, WASHINGTONWORMHOLE, and MAIZEMOVIEMAKER.
  • He Was Right There All Along: ROCKEFELLERREVELATION reveals the Air Force One Angel to have been in both the photo of the previous Christmas tree at the Rockefeller Center and in the photo of the Special Tree.
  • Living Statue: The Statue of Freedom is this, being made alive by the still-living flesh of both Thomas Crawford and his daughter.
  • Magitek: Due to a number of mystical discoveries the setting, a large amount of tech is either supernatural in nature or implied to be.
    • The Rockefeller airships are effectively indestructible, not due to their construction, but because the gas has been substituted out for the flying heads of Canyon Crowns, which are already established as being able to grow to truly massive sizes. The frame of the airship simply seeks to force them into a certain shape.
    • The Anti-Airship Death Ray is definitely based on some magical properties, containing a lamp that has to be focused through the skull of what may be a horned serpent, has to be mounted atop the Great Pyramid to fire, and disintegrates the seventeen soldiers sent to operate it in such a way that they are effectively left as consciousnesses without form, until they eventually manage to restore their form as one. This tech actually shows up later on as a small scale riot dispersal weapon, which implies that a non-magical alternative was developed at some point (or that the resources needed for it were able to be mass produced.)
    • Possibly everything produced by Maize Technologies, or at least their early computers, seem to have been made using materials or energy from the Horned Serpent underneath the United States. However, this backfired spectacularly on them, resulting in computer tech in this timeline being significantly further behind than in ours.
  • Mineral MacGuffin: The Giza Glass is a rare type of glass created from lightning strikes in Egypt that has the ability to cut off limbs while still allowing their owners to control them.
  • Mockumentary: The entire series is in this style, with every episode usually involving information about a certain place or area, alongside various accounts from people of interest.
  • Monumental Damage: The Cairo Tower is destroyed by the Suez Canal Crab, killing hundreds of people. Its destruction was accidental however, as the creature unexpectedly tripped and crashed into the tower. While some people managed to get out, rescue efforts retreated because the structural integrity of the tower was compromised.
  • Musical Spoiler: At the end of ROCKEFELLERREVELATION, Doctor Disturbing describes the disappearance of John D. Rockefeller and there were only two released photos of the suspect behind it. Moments before the photos were revealed, certain music (I.E. Jackie Gleason's "I'll Be Home For Christmas", as heard in ROCKEFELLERTREETRAGEDY) begins to swell, letting viewers familiar with prior installments of the series know ahead of time that the photos are related to a specific incident already documented.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Rockefeller has this reaction upon realizing how the "Rockefellers" would be used, both in that Germany would use them against America and in that the Americans would use them to bomb innocent Germans in retaliation.
  • No OSHA Compliance: As the Suez Canal Crab approached Cairo, the Cairo Tower's capacity was increased from 700 to 1,000; even reaching 1,200 visitors. Concerns by the staff were dismissed by the tower's manager. And then, the creature slipped and crashed into the tower; causing it to collapse and killing more than 1,100 visitors. The manager managed to survive the collapse.
  • Noodle Incident: While in GIZAGUARDIAN Flinders Petrie is indeed stated to have become a Canyon Crown, his tale is treated as being for "another day".
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Despite being a gigantic monster, the Suez Canal Crab seemingly bears no ill will towards any humans; the only reason anyone died near it was because it tripped and fell over.
  • Nothing Is Scarier:
    • The climactic shot of LIBERTYLURKER, which shows the creature's emergence, only shows a tiny portion of the creature before cutting away.
    • The recording of Mt. Rushmore on Saturday in RUSHMOREREVENGE isn't shown at all, due to the lens cap being on.
    • The same applies in GIZAGUARDIAN, where Maya is turned into a Canyon Crown by the Statue of Freedom. Nothing is shown at all besides the audio due to the lens cap being on, leaving the visuals up to the user's imagination.
  • Pyramid Power: The Pyramids are structures that span an infinite amount of length, made to contain the Special Trees. The parts of the pyramids that are viewable are merely the "tips" of the buildings. During World War One, the Great Pyramid was also used as a mounting point for an Anti-Airship Death Ray, with the implication that the mystical power of the structure was needed to make it function correctly.
  • Richard Nixon, the Used Car Salesman:
    • James Dean, instead of dying in a car crash in 1955, lives and goes on to run for presidency in 1968.
    • John D. Rockefeller, instead of becoming a billionaire, becomes President of the United States.
    • Instead of pioneering animation and creating one of the biggest companies on Earth, Walt Disney stayed in the medical field following World War One and went on to fund the hospital shown caring for Dean in DEANDISASTER.
    • Hillary Clinton ran for office in 2020 and ended up winning.
    • Al Gore ran for office and ended up becoming president, as stated in AIRFORCEONEFALLENANGEL.
  • Ripped from the Headlines:
    • Unlike the other episodes, which mostly focus on either historical landmarks or specific events unique to the series's Alternate History, SUEZCANALCRAB focuses specifically on the Ever Given becoming lodged in the Suez Canal, an event which happened in late March 2021, about a month before the video aired.
    • DEANDISASTER featured the ADA attacking the Capitol and was uploaded six months after the January 6th Capitol riots. Another riot (again, on the Capitol) occurs in FREEDOMFALLER, which was uploaded just one month after the January 6th riots.
  • The Runaway: Nina Crawford runs away from home alongside her father's statue in an attempt to find him. It doesn't go very well for her at all.
  • Rushmore Refacement: in RUSHMOREREVENGE, the entirety of Mount Rushmore is completely altered due to the "infection" that took place over the whole week.
  • Schizo Tech: As a result of both access to, and the consequences of misusing supernatural resources, a number of bizarre pieces of tech have appeared so far.
    • ROCKEFELLERREVELATION reveals two noteworthy weapons of war: Rockefeller airships (which are almost impossible to shoot down due to the gases inside being replaced with the mutilated flying heads of Canyon Crowns), and the Anti-Airship Death Ray. While the Rockefellers don't seem to survive to the modern era, miniaturized heat rays are apparently a common riot control device by 2021.
    • DEANDISASTER showcases another two: cochlear hearing implants and medical androids, both common by 1969, with the implants being common into the modern era due to effectively being compulsory for all Americans.
    • On the other end of the tech development scale, computers are shown to be willfully restricted in development, with one being developed in the 1970s and all others since being illegal. Instead, electronic technology seems to be firmly stuck in the 1980s, with crude replacements for modern web apps like the Maize Movie Maker pseudo-computer and the TWTTR-Machine (or T-Machine) pseudo cell phone. Camera technology seems to be just as bad, with reference made to disposable video cameras with poor quality recording.
    • And of course every once in a while a more general piece of alternate tech appears, like a Concorde jetliner being used to represent a 2021 airliner.
  • Show Within a Show: Doctor Disturbing, who acts as a parody of YouTubers that discuss creepy events in the form of documentaries.
  • Slave Race: The Crowns are sold to Germany by Rockefeller as a slave force, as part of a deal to bolster and improve the United States' economy.
  • Stylistic Suck: Due to technology being less advanced than it is in our universe, videos have a low budget feel to them and look like they came out of Windows Movie Maker. Fittingly enough, they are made in an in-universe variant of WMM.
  • Switching P.O.V.: ROCKEFELLERTREETRAGEDY is narrated from the perspectives of former president John D. Rockefeller and a young girl named Virginia.
  • Was Once a Man: The Canyonggalans, also known as Canyon Crowns, are men and women whose heads have been cut off by the Statue of Freedom. In particular, Maya Arnoldson is revealed to have become one.
  • Western Terrorists: The ADA (Anti-Dean Association, later the Anti-Device Association) is this, being against Dean and later most devices in general. Maya and Nathanial Arnoldson were members of it, if MAIZEMOVIEMAKER is anything to go by.
  • Wham Episode: AIRFORCEONEFALLENANGEL not only confirms that the Air Force One Angel and the seventeen soldiers are one and the same being, but also sets up ADAnote 's plan to use it to evict the Horned Serpent.
    • LIBERTYLURKERS even moreso, as it not only states that the Liberty Lurker is in fact George Washington after he was sent to Wonderland, but that he's the Horned Serpent as well.
  • Wham Line: This series has several, tying the various episodes together.
    • From the end of ROCKEFELLERTREETRAGEDY, there's the very last quote from John D. Rockefeller Jr.
    John D. Rockefeller Jr.: Many, including my father, believe that the 1934 Christmas tree vanished. This is untrue. I have seen it wandering in the Plaza on many occasions. And it resembles a man far more than any tree.
    • In LIBERTYLURKERS, the interview with Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi titled "L'authentique Libertylurker" has a massive one tying the events of DELAWAREDOUBLE, MAIZEMOVIEMAKER, and LIBERTYLURKER:
    Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi: People often ask why the pedestal is so disproportionate to the statue, all I can tell them is, "Ask the Americans". But I know why the pedestal is so massive, so tall. I simply cannot bring myself to tell them the truth, I am not strong enough. The truth being that I designed an abattoirnote . Just for him. Grant told me that he used to be normal like us. He called him the Horned Serpent, or Hanodaganears. "The devourer of villages." It was the name given to George Washington by the Iroquois. This was no coincidence. Their damned founding father locked up in my foundation."
  • Wham Shot: ROCKEFELLERREVELATION shows the figure that apparently killed John D. Rockefeller is none other than the Air Force One Angel.
    • STARRYSPHINX has two. The first one is the Pyramids rising from the ground, revealing that they look exactly like the Washington Monument, another building made to contain the Special Trees. The second is the shot at the end showing the current situation with the Pyramids in Egypt, revealing that the actual number of Pyramids is in the near thousands, with there being countless Special Trees in each and every one.
      • The first is an animated parable produced by the ADA, depicting Washington attempting to cut down his father's prized tree. Washington strikes the tree, but ends up falling through the earth and landing in a parallel world, before his image is stretched into the shape of the Special Trees.
      • This video also contains footage of the in-between dimension that Virginia and the other children were trapped within during their travels.
  • Would Hurt a Child: The Statue of Freedom brutally crushes and kills Nina Crawford to mix her into it.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: Rockefeller believes this of himself, claiming that he's going to be assassinated sooner rather than later in ROCKEFELLERREVELATION. The men execute a counterattack shortly after this.
  • Zeppelins from Another World: The Rockefellers are these, having been made by the Germans in a collaboration with President John D. Rockefeller.

If you have family members who were last seen at Ellis Island between the years 1949 and 1954, you may be entitled to compensation.

Video Example(s):


President John D. Rockefeller

Later events would make him wish he were an oil tycoon like his real life counterpart described by the dimensionally-displaced children.
