Wanted: Animated Otto![]

Looks like the only Wolf 3D boss for which we don't have a nice animated GIF is poor old Otto. I don't know who made the other GIFs, but it would be really nice to provide one for the Giftmacher, which will also complete the Episode 4 page (currently it lacks a boss image). If anyone can contribute the missing image - go ahead and upload it. Thanks :) -- Vorknkx (talk) 13:11, November 19, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, how did I miss that? I'm the guy that made the GIFs. Way way back in 2009 when Master Mold ran the place I made about half of the enemies on the site animated. Recently I realized that I did a crap job on most of them and redid all of them. All that's left is Otto, apparently, who was never animated. Him and Hitler, who still has his BS poor-quality animation from years ago. I'll get on this soon enough. Elecbullet (talk) 19:51, November 19, 2012 (UTC)
Aaaw, poor Otto is very upset that you forgot him. He cried for several hours until I finally persuaded Gretel Grosse to comfort him (if you know what I mean). Luckily for you, the Fuehrer still doesn't know that you haven't made a new GIF for him. I'm sure he would have reacted if he had learned about this ;) -- Vorknkx (talk) 08:26, November 20, 2012 (UTC)

I realize that it is somewhat pedantic to pick on the minutiae of German grammar in this context, but I think it might be noteworthy as a point of interest to some people that Otto Giftmacher's alert sound of "eine kleine Amerikaner!" is grammatically incorrect German. The article and adjective "eine kleine" both have the feminine form, but "Amerikaner" is the masculine form used for a male American. (The female noun would be "Amerikanerin.") The correct thing for Giftmacher to say would have been "Ein kleiner Amerikaner!" Presumably, he says what he says because the game developers were familiar with Mozart's famous piece of music "Eine kleine Nachtmusik" and assumed that "eine kleine" was the standard German way of saying "a little" anything. (It's not--it only applies to feminine nouns, such as "Musik.") Again, I realize that adding this to the article might add unnecessary information that really isn't relevant to anyone playing the game, but since people often come here to see trivia and other interesting details about the game, I feel like a side note to this effect could be appropriate. 194.166.157.219 20:56, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

Maybe its an insult and he is purposely calling BJ a girl?Baggins (talk) 15:23, June 13, 2015 (UTC)
