:bulletblue: Bad Babysitter


Babysitting can be stressful.
Babysitting during a zombie apocalypse might just drive you insane...

In the REMusicals and Survivor series, Claire has always been one of the more normal characters. She tends to be a voice of reason among all the stupidity the other characters showcase. But there was always this one underlying trait she had that I was very well aware of, but never had any ideas to make a main focus of it. Until now! As far back as the original Montage Rumble, I'd joke around in the comments about how Claire was a bad babysitter for losing Sherry so often. That wasn't enough material to span an entire video though, so into the montage it went.

But years later, Claire went on babysit another little girl - Rani from the Degeneration movie. Instead of limiting a video to Sherry and Rani though, I decided to make it a tribute of sorts to all the little girls of the Resident Evil series. So we also have Lily (Gun Survivor) and Lucia (RE Gaiden) thrown into the mix, even though Claire hasn't ever interacted with them before.

I actually got the idea and began drawing this video immediately after No Hope Left on April 8th, 2014. However the previous video had me a little burned out, so for a few months I mainly focused on normal artwork and a game that I'm creating. Operation: Opera and Rekt Evil were animated and uploaded as quick fillers while I worked on "Bad Babysitter" in the background. So imagine my surprise on September 6th when Claire was announced to be in Revelations 2... babysitting another young girl!

The after-credits bit was originally planned to be a scene where Leon finds a flyer for Claire's "Baby-Sitting Arrangement Association", then grins mischievously at Ashley. Quickly followed by him dumping her off at the office where Claire gets all creepy on her. But after the REV2 reveal, I decided to instead animate Rekt Evil first and end it with a teaser for "Bad Babysitter". I couldn't resist having Moira for the ending instead, since the coincidence was so unbelievably perfect.

This is just an idea I've always thought about since I first played RE2 years ago and I know it would probably never happen in these games because of censorship and all, but wouldn't it have actually been scarier if there were a couple of kid zombies in RE2? I know there's no way we could get away with Leon or Claire having to shoot little kid zombies but maybe if they threw just a couple in the small levels where you had to control Sherry (who can't use weapons anyways) because that would have been pretty terrifying for a survival horror game to see some zombies who were children like her and were sadly infected by the T-virus and couldn't be saved. Kind of like how in the game Siren Blood Curse in the one level where you play as Bella (who's also a defenseless kid like Sherry) and she's having to escape from an abandoned house inhabited by a zombie-like shibito family and one of them was actually a little girl like herself.

I'm really not getting my hopes up for this RE2 remake Capcom has announced but if they added a scary twist like that I think that might actually make me reconsider my opinion about them not being able to handle real survival horror games anymore. :)

Something like that could be interesting, yeah. I guess Dead Space 2 kinda got away with that, though the "kids" looked more like little aliens so they's probably how they managed.

BlasphemousDoggy Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2016
Yeah, and that's like with Siren Blood Curse I felt like they handled it well by having the only zombie-like little kid in the whole game appear in just that one level where you got to control a kid character yourself and couldn't actually kill her (though she could still kill the little girl you controlled). Something like that for Sherry's playable levels I think would be a scary idea but I doubt it would ever happen in the RE2 remake knowing Capcom.

Saw this video a while ago and have to say I liked it :) You're new style is cute I kinda like it in a way but still enjoy rewatching your old videos with your old styles. Your movie ideas are still funny and still make me smile to this day. Keep doing what you're doing Leggy, your old fans haven't forgotten you.

Ohh. XD Well, shitty-ass luck runs in the Redfield familiy.

Yo, let's talk real for a second tho; I actually see Claire as a great caretaker, since she kept Sherry (and Rani...And Steve. Yeah, he counts as a kid too) alive through everything. Plus, considering that everything that happend to Sherry was out of Claire's control; getting sucked through the water system in canals when Claire only took her eyes off Sherry for a second? And then getting impregnated because of it? Nah. Same with Leon, we all love to joke about how an incompetent rookie he was, but he really, he acted like a real decent cop, despite no one actually giving a fuck at what he had to say. XD

It's fun to joke about their quirks, of course. But I just wanted to clarify this bcuz in reality Claire and RE2 Leon are like my faaaaaavs protags of RE in da whole wide world and they deserve mad love <333

Ain't it though? That shit was pretty funny, even back when I first played the game. XD How did she even sucked down the drain like that?

Ah, yeah. And you know, sometimes people can have a hard time differentiating what others playfully joke about, and what people maliciously make fun of. Not that I blame them for not being able to tell the difference at times , it's a tough line to walk for what can be considered parody, and what can be considered mockery. :)

I love this video^^ (as well as all the other videos, my favorites are still "Ada Wong: Worst spy ever", "No Hope left" and "I'm so excited" [the later one I can't watch anymore since it's blocked in my country])

In terms of animation: Like already mentioned, it's awesome.

I especially love the ending, I have to say, it made me laugh so hard^^

*Ashley in the cell*
Claire: "Don't worry. You will be alright."

Love that one^^

Animation bro. It's getting better and better each time you release one of these :) I know it's tough to be a machine and pelt these out quickly, but these are definitely worth waiting for. The quality has gotten pretty damn amazing. 

Anyone who gets impatient about your videos doesn't realize that you don't have a team doing this, this is your art, your vision, and your time. Your fucking zen level focus :P Seeing it come to life like this every once in a while makes it super special in my opinion :)

As for the content itself, it's cool to see you actually made a video about what you've always thought of Claire, what a horrible babysitter! XD To be fair though, she had a lot goin on... what with the zombie aDOCKalips and all. XDDD I think I remember you mentioning that in passing in older videos, but to see it showcased like this after so long was cool :)

To be honest though, I'm not sure who the other kids other than Sherry were! I know I've fallen behind on RE shit, but I know you've got your contest winner as a cameo too. Congrats to them beeteedubs :D Anyway! Cool video nonetheless, I commented on YouTube too but I gotta say it again--I totally fangirled out when I heard the Golden Girls song! Cookie dough and Golden Girls, fuckin yum. XDDDD

Merry Christmas, lady!

Yo YEEE! Thank even, yeah they take FUCKIN' forever!!! But it's really satisfying once one's done. I just watch it like yo look, I did it me. I'm still lovin' the HD and Sony Vegas gasms. Luckily no one has really been all that impatient, like literally one guy who was just like "Your last video is already 2 months old make more" and I'm just like well that's precisely how long it takes to make a new one, ya fuckin' dunce. XD

And yeah poor CLAR!!! She always ends up in da zombie aDOCKalypse so part of the idea was to make it seem like she actually enjoyed it and willingly took her babysat kids on a magical adventure through one. Like what even gurl. Oh but the other girls are from the less popular RE stuff, pigtails is from Survivor, redhead from Gaiden and dark hair from Degeneration - that CGI movie where Leon had a stick up his ass the whole time. And yo YEE da winner was happy with the cameo and it was a fun event to host even. I actually remembered when a long time ago someone impersonated me on Wikipedia and had a "contest" to be in a video, but the criteria was to say "Why you like me and my videos" or some other ridiculous shit. And that was back when people were constantly asking to be in videos so what a fuckin' mess - But it's nice to do that legitimately and with a much less egomaniac criteria XD

Yo HAPPY HOLIDAYS INDIVIDUAL! It almost new year, what even.

You forgot Salazar, who is obviously just a wrinkly child. Saddler lets him stay too long in the bubble bath.

I knew something was off about Revelations Claire. Her new face has that Luigi's Death Stare going on.

God I fucking hate him, his character is so unnecessary, random, stupid, and gross XD I sound like a little kid with those insults but fuck him, he's only a few steps above Krauser.

I honestly haven't seen a ton of footage or information on REV2, I just know the basics of the plot and characters in it so far. The few pics I've seen I guess were official renders so she didn't look so bad to me. I've seen people saying she looks ugly or like a methhead and I'm kinda lost as to why. Like yeah, she aged some I guess? God forbid a woman ages out of her 20's.

I was watching a clip from RE4 recently, and there was a Codec conversation between Salazar and Leon. I'd almost forgotten how much they ripped off Metal Gear.

Don't know if I'd go so far as to call her character model ugly, but it's definitely scowly. Like she's got such a sour look on her face compared to previous games. Claire was always one of the more optimistic characters in the franchise, it's kind of jarring to see her so world weary. Never drew the drug comparison, but now that you mention it she does look a little "twitchy"...

Yeah that's true, though instead of being charming or funny the RE4 ones were like mega-eyeroll bad XD

She definitely doesn't look happy, you're right. And she was definitely one of the most positive characters among the rest (though these days anyone could look happy compared to emo fairy-boy and captain PTSD steroid pusher). It's understandable though if she finally gets an "I'm sick of this shit" attitude given that we've actually seen her witness a lot of crap over the years. Like honestly Claire is one of the only ones who deserves to be pissed off at this point since she's probably gotten the most continuous development. Meanwhile someone like Leon, jumping from one single incident (RE2) to being a hardened, brooding, emo piece of shit in RE4 is just a pointless gimmick to make him a woobie for the fangirls.

Your reasoning behind Claire's new tude might work in theory, but it implies Capcom cares after nearly two decades about updating her arc. More likely, they're attempting to ride cottails off the success of Walking Dead and Last of Us. Moira, as much as she's started to grow on me, seems like a character straight from those games. What with her potty mouth and all. But even if my assumptions are incorrect, the first Revelations already gave us a "sick of this shit" heroine in the form of Jill "Wetsuit" Valentine.

But yeah that's true too about it spanning over such a long time before she got sick of it. Maybe it more so happened during her getting involved in the "politics" of it so to speak. Like the nasty fat dude from Degeneration, dealing with people like that?
