PhantomBlot

The original Phantom Blot is a wanted criminal and first appeared in "Mickey Mouse Outwits the Phantom Blot".

He served as the main inspiration for The Blot in the game, though they are actually very different characters. Before it was decided that the main blot would be named Shadow Blot to avoid confusion with the original character from which it departed a lot, the blot was still referred to as the Phantom Blot.

Behind the Scenes

Before they settled for the current, demon-like appearance of the Shadow Blot, this "Phantom Blot" went through many designs, of which three were reminescent of the original hooded Phantom Blot:

  • A hooded guy with devil wings that resemble the wraiths from Lord of the Rings.
  • A hooded creep with 3 appearances, due to the idea of the existence of Scrapper MickeyWastelander Mickey, & Hero Mickey.
  • A levitating, scheming figure reminiscent of Queen Grimhilde's hag form in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Later, once the Shadow Blot became a character of its own, the original Phantom Blot was supposed to be used separately as either of the following:

  • An enemy who would start out as a weird blob, & then later transform into a monster.
  • A hooded guy with devil wings that resemble the wraiths from Lord of the Rings.
  • A hooded creep with 3 appearances, due to the idea of the existence of Scrapper MickeyWastelander Mickey, & Hero Mickey.
  • The thief in Mean Street
  • The guy who would challenge Mickey to races around various levels in the game until he was replaced by Gilda.
  • A boss, possibly in Mean Street to mark the completion of 50% of the game's story
  • A cameo appearance in a jail cell in City Hall, supposedly complaining how he had been thrown in jail for being accused of working for the Shadow Blot.
  • A normal citizen.
  • A reformed villain working against the Shadow Blot.
  • The thief in Horace's quests until he was replaced by many other characters.

Trivia

  • He is not to be confused with the dark cloaked figure in a Behind the Scenes video, as that would be the Mad Doctor in his "raincoat" from his original short film appearance.
  • The idea of adding the Phantom Blot was probably scrapped because it would be hard for the player to keep track of which Blot the characters were talking about. However, the Phantom Blot being in Wasteland wouldn't make much sense, as he is actually still a recurring character in the Mickey Mouse comics and by no means forgotten.
  • The Phantom Blot has also made an appearance in the House of Mouse episode, "Where's Minnie?" as well as an episode of DuckTales, "All Ducks on Deck".
