Ika Musume strikes a cool pose.

Possibly as a follow-up from the previous post, a common tendency for those characters not usually seen as the brightest bioluminescent organisms in the ocean is to have them be some kind of unexpected genius in some field.

I think it's part of the explanation given occasionally on the difference between the Intelligence and the Wisdom stats: here, Ika Musume displays high Intelligence, but her usual behaviour and lack of insight means low Wisdom.

Considering how quickly she's said to learn various abilities like speaking the language of those around her, and utilizing their technology (albeit to play video games), this obviously gives her a great many skill points too.

… I miss my gaming group.

    Intelligence is knowing tomatoes are fruits. Wisdom is not putting them in fruit salad.

    I suppose that if characters were with high intelligence and wisdom, they wouldn't be very funny; characters with low intelligence and wisdom on the other hand, are sometimes just annoying to watch. ( ´_ゝ`)

    But really though, characters with high intelligence and low wisdom are often as such just to play up the humor in one having such differing levels of brainpower, a.k.a. savantism.

    I lol'ed.

    Bytheway, smrt means "death" in czech language.
