Time to burn some digibridges.
To begin with, the Digimon protagonist wasn’t a half-rat-half-toaster but A RAD DINOSAUR.
And not just any dinosaur: a BIG-HEADED dinosaur named Agumon.
And when he evolves, he puts on this crazy mask and looks scary as hell.
And then he evolves into the cover of a power metal album, because why the hell not?
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! Ever see a pokémon evolve into one of these? I didn’t think so.
