Battle Beasts were pretty lame compared to other toys of that time (see GI Joe
, or Voltron
They were these little anthropomorphic
animals that had armor
, and a black square
on their chests. You would rub the black square to reveal one of three insignias: water
, or wood
. Then you could play what was basically a variation of paper-rock-scissors.
Fire burns wood.
Wood floats on water.
Water puts out fire.
Wood floats on water? Hello? I'm not impressed. I can see how fire burns wood being a threat, or water quelling a fire, but "Wood floats on water"? Sounds like a draw to me.
