Moosh, Ricky, or Dimitri?

I'm sure there has been a thread about this before, but I don't see one around, so here goes...

In OoX, which pet did you choose? I chose Moosh when I first played OoA, and Ricky when I first played OoS (they are the defaults for their respective games). Ricky was okay, but I hated Moosh, ugh. After playing through a couple times though, I chose Dimitri, and he rocks! Dimitri the Dodongo is definitely my favorite pet. He's the coolest, he can eat enemies and you can throw him at enemies. Moosh can only pound enemies and Ricky can only punch them, but the D-tri's got it all. So who's your favorite and why?

Re: Moosh, Ricky, or Dimitri?

It's all about Dmitri. Nothing beats riding a giant red lizard that eats your enemies. If only he could breathe fire..

I guess that would make him too awesome for the game to handle.

Re: Moosh, Ricky, or Dimitri?

Ricky is my choice, but Dimitri's awesome too.
Moosh...uh...yeah. Why is he in the game again?

Re: Moosh, Ricky, or Dimitri?

I have always hated Moosh too. Whenever I play OoA and get to the point where I *have* to ride him for the flippers... I always cringe at that part. However I had found a trick to using him. Keep pressing A quickly over and over again. :/ I remember once when I accidentally got the Moosh flute in OoS furing my first playthrough when I intended to get Dimitri's. I was so angry that I had literally erased my file and started all over again. Damn you Moosh.

Ricky is okay. He's certainly a lot better than Moosh any day.

And finally, Dimitri. He is my absolute favorite. He can swim and climb up waterfalls. Although I'm not exactly too fond of his biting attack or throwing him. Throwing him is a bit too much of a hassle and he is pretty slow when chomping on stuff. I prefer Ricky's punching over Dimitri's attacks.

Still, Dimitri is the best in my humble opinion.

Re: Moosh, Ricky, or Dimitri?

Well, I've played through Oracles three times and each time I've chosen another animal. The interesting part is, that in both games one entire part of the world completely depends on what animal you've chosen. For example, you select Ricky, you get a prairie like landscape, a flooded terrain with Dimitri and some kind of wasteland filled with holes if you go with Moosh.

So, I guess, choosing your favorite animal does not only depend on its abilities, but also on what kind of landscape you like the most.

Place 1 for me is definitely Ricky. He looks cool, his attacks are strong and fast, he is the only pet, who has ranged attacks and he is the fastest (or at least feels like the fastest). Plus, his landscapes look the best, they remind me on the Ukuku Prairie in Link's Awakening, one of my favorite areas there.

Place 2 is Dimitri, a swimming Dodongo, how nice is that? With his ability to swim he can cover twice as much landscape than the other animals. But when you get the Mermaid Suit in Ages, he gets pretty much useless there. Also, his attack may be strong, but you have to get close to your enemies, which makes you vulnerable. Carrying him is cool, but I don't get the point about that. Shouldn't he the one, who carries you? xD But at least you can throw him over the gaps, Ricky normally jumps over. About his areas, they are all water. In Oracle of Ages this may be a little bit too much, but if you like lakes, rivers and currents, go for it.

Last and definitely least: Moosh. Don't know, if Capcom just couldn't come up with a better idea, but he sucks. I first played Ages and didn't know how to "select" your favorite animal, so I got Moosh, because he's default. And he annoyed me. His controls don't work too good, always pressing A quickly for long time periods... Attacking enemies can be a pain in the ass and the worst of the worst, his areas. Hundreds of holes in an ugly wasteland, filled with Leevers, who are pretty much the best Anti-Moosh-weapon out there, because they always disappear right in the moment, you try to crash on them. And then popping up again, hurting you good. I normally lose quite a bunch of health when going through his area in Oracle of Seasons...

I'd have to agree with you on all points. When it comes to Dimitri (the first known GOOD Dodongo in the LoZ universe) I thought it would have been cool if you could pick him up and throw him at enemies (causing them damange, as if you were throwing a boulder). That way, he would have close and long range attacks. But they didn't think of that sadly. But like you said, after getting the mermaid suit, he's pretty much useless (there aren't many waterfalls nor enemies in water).

I too am a Moosh hater. His only attack has to be charged up (like a spin attack...which is basically it's range). The only thing that's good about him is if you actually want to make the game slightly harder, then he's the friend to choose.

I honestly hope Nintendo decides to use this friend-system again. In ALttP if you caught a Bee and released it, it would help you defeat enemies on the screen. Why not have that boxing penguin be a friend? He could be slow on land, but very agile in aquatic areas (this of course includes all forms of water like ice & snow).

Then again, if we're to ever have more friends that could help in the fight (ala Bow-wow in LA) then I'd probably expect a few more enemies on the screen to add onto the challenge (but not as much as FSA).

Re: Moosh, Ricky, or Dimitri?

I like ricky exept for the way he moves... it's so damn annoying!

Moosh is okay... I used to like him, but I decided that his attacks were'nt very good.

Dimitri is cool aswell, but all in all I like Ricky the most.

Re: Moosh, Ricky, or Dimitri?

I really like Dimitri the most. He was pretty easy to control, and I liked his abilities. I didn't care much for Ricky... dunno, why, just never did. Moosh was my favorite design-wise (I think he's adorable!), but utterly annoying to use.

Re: Moosh, Ricky, or Dimitri?

I loved Dimitri the most. Moosh is my second favourite but the fact that Ricky is a guy and still has a pouch freeks me out. Male kangaroo's don't have pouches.

Well Ricky is the first one you come across in Oracle of Seasons, so I chose it. He's cool.

Re: Moosh, Ricky, or Dimitri?

Moosh: Moves slowly, can't attack unless he jumps. Pointless beyond flying over pits. With a Pegasus Seed and Roc's Cape, you don't need him.

Ricky: Pretty darn cool. Movement is a bit erratic due to jumping, but overall a great partner for attacking and moving quickly. Obsolete after Roc's Feather for pits, though.

Dimitri: My favorite. Helpful for swimming against currents, especially in Seasons where you can't get the Mermaid Suit. Attacks are slow and don't let the enemies drop items, but that's the only downside.

Re: Moosh, Ricky, or Dimitri?

I always liked Moosh for his fatness when I first played, but Ricky grew on me. He's a boxer afterall. XD

Aussie pride.
