Appearances

Final Fantasy II

Venom removes HP from the afflicted character in each turn similar to Poison, however it does not last after battle and there is a chance of recovery at the end of every turn. Venom can be cured by the White Magic spell Basuna at any level.

Final Fantasy IX

The character is affected by strong poison and cannot take action, while HP and MP both periodically decrease. It is characterized by green and purple bubbles coming from the character, and a bottle symbol in the status windows. Unlike the similar conditions Poison or Stop, Venom does not wear off, and ultimately, will result in a Game Over if the only character(s) left are afflicted.

The effect can be removed by using an Antidote or Remedy, or with the spell Panacea, and can be prevented altogether with the Antibody Support Ability.

AUTHOR'S NOTES

The origin story

  • A large part of the origin theory is very far fetches and there is a reason for it, the character was originally designed with the fantasy style background to add a sense of mystery to him, I am aware of how far fetched some of the origin tale is but hopefully you find it intriguing anyway.

ANCIENT REFERENCES

Fact vs. Fiction

  • Details are sketchy at best as to the details but what we do know is that in the ancient world there was a reference to a sickness, not a virus, but a man referred to as a sickness and that he was gaining power, the powers of the time believed him to be a great threat, some of the ancient, its no secret that many ancient myths are based on real life figures, Hercules was in fact a man who lived, a man of incredible power but that is all he was, just a man, Anubis is another such figure they were only two of the brings responsible, another was a figure who is believed to be Voorhees, a long term rival of Venom. If the myth is to be believed the only way the powers were able to stop Venom was to have Voorhees merge his essence with that of Venom and then to lock them in a device that in legend became known as Pandora's Box.

The Tale of Pandora's Box

  • The tale of Pandora's box has always been a popular legend, over the centuries the story has been altered and changed into more of a religious tale as opposed to the truth behind the story, the version that lived today is that Pandora had been given the box by Zeus and instructed never to open it however had also been given the 'gift' of curiosity and ultimately opened the box letting out all of the evil into the world we see today but she closed it just in time so that hope still remained. Although the box's origin's are still to this day unrevealed there are manuscripts to confirm that the box's guard did have the label of Pandora, whether it was the name of the guard or simply a title given afterwards is unknown however she was the one responsible for opening it, it was open only long enough for part of their essence to escape which allowed Voorhees to return to the mortal plane, and it was closed in time to keep Venom inside, giving mortal kind hope, however what the manuscripts do not reveal is that through Voorhees and the merging of their 'essences' Venom was given a small amount of power in the form of temptation. He had enough power to tempt and ultimate manipulate men and women, it would take many centuries for it to pay off but eventually it would lead to his return to the mortal plane. His power over Voorhees however was limited at best only enough to block the knowledge of his presence.

THE RETURN OF VENOM

The hunt for Pandora's Box

  • There have been many figures over the history of man that have attempted to find the true origin of Pandora's box, some under the influence of Venom, others for their own ambitions but it would be a man by the name of Seth Jones (an enemy of Voorhees) that would discover it hidden away deep underground an ancient Aztec temple. He had plans to use it against Voorhees having being led to believe it was a way to kill him however Venom had influenced a high ranking man in the U.S. Secret Service, a mysterious man known only as General O'Connor. O'Connor had Seth Jones killed and took the box for himself.

The Box is opened

  • The box itself has many strange qualities however its most powerful is the way it appears to corrupt anything that comes into contact with it, whether it was the box itself of Venom influence is difficult to determine but this much is known, before the box entered O'Connor's posession he was an upstanding and honorable man, dedicated to serving his country, afterwards he became parinoid, greedy and self serving at the expense of anyone around him, the temptation became too much for him and instead of delivering it to his superiors as ordered he opened it releasing Venom. As a result the essences of Venom and Voorhees were merges once again however Venom had grown powerful over the centuries and he used the power to gain full control over Voorhees and release himself into the world.

(Redirected to Venom (G1) article)

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

The name or term Venom refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Venom (disambiguation).
Venom is a Decepticon Insecticon in the Generation One continuity family.
It may seem like he's just shaking his fist, but in reality his forehead is giving you the finger.

Venom is the official leader of the Insecticons, but he's so paranoid about one of the others trying to usurp his position that he does more damage to his own standing among them than most of the plots they might hatch against him. He trusts none of them and suspects everyone of being after his place. He won't hesitate to utilize his manipulative and destructive psychological warfare techniques on those under him to stay in power.

8.2 million years ago, Venom participated in Shockwave's assault on Iacon. The War Within, Part 3 He presumably retreated with the rest of the Decepticons when Starscream activated the planetary engines, devastating the city.

After the fragmentation of the Decepticon forces following Megatron's seeming destruction in a space bridge accident, Venom joined Ratbat's Ultracons. He accompanied Ratbat and fellow Ultracons Chop Shop and Ransack on a mission to the Tagan Heights, where they unleashed the deadly Devastator on the Wreckers. Capturing the Wreckers' leader Springer, the Ultracons were prevented from executing him when Devastator's battle with Defensor raged out of control. The Dark Ages, Part 2 In the chaos that ensued, Venom and his allies escaped, leaving Devastator behind. The Dark Ages, Part 3

Later, Venom, Chop Shop, and Barrage were involved in an altercation with Ultra Magnus, Blaster, and Grimlock. Venom also accompanied his leader to the Autobot/Decepticon peace ceremony at Tyger Pax. The Age of Wrath, Part 1

Venom, along with Barrage, Chop Shop, and Ransack, remained on Cybertron following the departure of the Ark and the Nemesis. The planet's chronic energon shortage reduced them to a vampiric existence, forcing them to capture Micromasters and drain them of their fuel. While pursuing Falcon and Flanker in the Wastelands, they ran into the middle of a conflict between the Hot Rod Patrol and Race Track Patrol. Destined For Nothing

After devouring Falcon they soon set upon the other Micromasters, but were driven back by the timely arrival of Groundshaker, who left with the Hot Rod Patrol. The subsequent arrival of Shockwave prevented them from devouring the Race Track Patrol, but Shockwave did surreptitiously toss them Flanker as a snack once the others had left. The Gray Race The Insecticons subsequently abducted the Race Track Patrol and several other Micromasters from Little Iacon, in an attempt to ferret out the Hot Rod Patrol and gain some new recruits in the process. He berated Chop Shop after he accidentally snatched Road Hugger, accusing him of trying to undermine the mission. As he attempted to persuade his captives to join the Decepticons, he ordered Barrage to blast Blaze Master as a show of force. Taking his captives and recruits back to Decepticon HQ, Venom passed along a communique from Shockwave (actually a disguised Skystalker) to Barricade and his team-mates, summoning them to his quarters.

Generation One

  • Venom (Deluxe Insecticon, 1985)
Venom transforms into a robotic cicada. He comes with a small blaster and an axe, and is one of the few Deluxe Insecticons whose arms actually let him aim either in any useful manner.

Trivia

  • Venom, like all of the Deluxe Insecticons, was originally designed by Takatoku Toys for the Armored Insect Battalion Beetras toyline (Nihongo: 機甲虫隊ビートラス). Takatoku Toys went out of business before the end of the Beetras line and their assets were purchased by fellow Japanese toymaker Bandai. Bandai licensed Takatoku's Beetras molds (alongside toys from Special Armored Battalion Dorvack and Super Dimensional Fortress Macross) to Hasbro in 1985 to make the Deluxe Insecticons.
  • Venom's mold was originally released as the Beetras toy named Beet Zeguna.
  • Neither Venom nor the rest of the Deluxe Insecticons ever appeared in an episode of the original Transformers cartoon series. As none of the Deluxe Insecticons were based on toys owned by Takara, there is little likelihood that they will ever be reissued by TakaraTomy or Hasbro.
  • In the cartoon, where Venom did not appear, the Insecticons appeared to be rather communal in leadership, though Shrapnel was often shown in a leadership position. Venom has been keeping an eye on Shrapnel ever since.
  • Real cicadas have no venom. They don't even bite or sting. They're just noisy.

From Yu-Gi-Oh!

Yu-Gi-Oh! (Duel Monsters) GX

Venom Monsters, featured in the release of "Tactical Evolution," are a small series of Reptile-type monsters intended to be used alongside the Field Spell card, "Venom Swamp." "Venom Swamp" places "Venom Counters" upon all monsters except Venom Monsters at the End Phase of each player's turn, weakening them dramatically and destroying them once their ATK hits 0. The penultimate Venom monster, "Vennominon the King of Poisonous Snakes", is easily summoned and gains ATK for each Reptile-type monster in the Graveyard, and if it is destroyed by a card effect, the Trap Card "Rise of the Snake Deity" can replace it with "Vennominaga the Deity of Poisonous Snakes", a card that is practically invincible once in play and which can initiate its own special victory condition, by inflicting Battle Damage to the opponent three times (which, given Vennominaga's ability to increase its own ATK, might not even take that long).

Since they rely upon Reptiles being sent to the Graveyard, Venom decks are at their most vulnerable when remove-from-play strategies are used, like "Dimensional Fissure". Venom deck users are also at risk of losing Life Points early, since the only reliable methods for quickly summoning "Vennominon the King of Poisonous Snakes" from the Deck involve taking Life Point damage (either via "Damage = Reptile" or "Damage Condenser".) All other Venom monsters happen to have low ATK for their level as well, so it is difficult for a Venom user to take the offense to the opponent early, especially if "Venom Swamp" is not yet on the field.

If you combined these cards with the other Reptile Archetype, Aliens, you might get a powerful Deck Type. It may also be a good idea to combine them with the recently released Reptilianne Archetype since both strategies involve lowering the opponent's attack points to 0.

Contents

Playing Style

The Venom deck is a powerful deck that focuses on lowering the opponent's monsters' ATK with Venom Swamp and summoning Vennominaga the Deity of Poisonous Snakes. Since Vennominaga's ATK is dependent on the amount of reptiles in your graveyard, cards like Foolish Burial and Snake Rain are important in this deck, and the deck is vulnerable to cards like Big Burn, Macro Cosmos, Dimensional Fissure and Soul Release. Also, there are not many Venom Monster Cards, so a hybrid with other decks is inevitable.

Strengths

Venom Swamp is able to quickly weaken and eventually destroy any monster. Also, even if Venom Swamp is not on the field, Venom Burn can inflict serious damage to a player's Life Points.

In addition, the ace card of this deck, Vennominaga the Deity of Poisonous Snakes, is almost invincible since it cannot be destroyed by any means except by battle, and can only be removed from the field by the effects of Volcanic Queen and Lava Golem.

Weaknesses

The deck relies on Venom Swamp for Venom Counters to have any effect on monsters, so if Venom Swamp is destroyed, Venom monsters' effects are useless. In addition, summoning Vennominaga the Deity of Poisonous Snakes is difficult since you need to summon it with Rise of the Snake Deity, meaning that a mere Seven Tools of the Bandit or even Malfunction can ruin your chance to summon Vennominaga.

Also, Vennominon the King of Poisonous Snakes and Vennominaga the Deity of Poisonous Snakes are weak unless there are Reptile monsters in the graveyard, so cards such as Dimensional Fissure and Macro Cosmos can easily ruin the entire deck strategy. So It's good to include Imperial Iron Wall.

The main weakness of the Venom deck, however, is the low ATK points of most Venom monsters. This means that your opponent can easily just summon a monster to destroy your Venom monster, ignoring Venom Cobra. Because of this, cards like Ambush Fangs and Negate Attack are essential to this deck.

Another weakness of this deck is the Zombie World. This card should make Vennominaga's ATK 0, plus when destroyed there would be no reptile monsters to remove for bringing her back. To stop this its important to have a Field Barrier protecting your Venom Swamp.

Tips

It may be wise to include Evil Dragon Ananta in case too many monsters are removed from play.

To protect Venom Swamp, it is important to include cards like Field Barrier. Terraforming can also help increase the chances of drawing out Venom Swamp.

Include at least 1 copy of Snake Rain. This card allows you to potentially send 4 reptiles to the graveyard, strengthening Vennominon and Vennominaga by at least 2000 ATK points. Since most Venom monsters are weak, Damage = Reptile is a great addition to this deck.

To protect Vennominaga from Lava Golem and Volcanic Queen, Mask of Restrict is also a great card to include.

Important Support

  • Evil Dragon Ananta -- In the event that attempting to summon Vennominon or Vennominaga fails, this card can be very powerful as a backup by removing from play all Reptiles in the Graveyard.
  • Snake Rain -- Sends 4 Reptiles to the Graveyard from the Deck, powering up Vennominion or Vennominaga by 2000 ATK. In addition, if you discard a reptile monster for the cost, that's another 500 bonus attack points.
  • Damage = Reptile -- Allows the easy summon of Vennominon, since its original ATK is 0. Make sure to have at least a few Reptiles in the grave before summoning him with this, however.
  • Snake Whistle -- Summons another low-level Reptile when one you control is destroyed by effects, which can be handy.
  • Damage Condenser -- Allows the summon of Vennominon in the event you do not have any Reptiles on the field at all.
  • Destructive cards that target your own monsters -- Since Rise of the Snake Deity cannot activate in response to cards that would remove Vennominon from the field without destroying it, it is usually more reliable to destroy Vennominion yourself. The Trap Card Offering to the Snake Deity was specifically designed for this effect. Tribute to the Doomed, Offerings to the Doomed and Hammer Shot are some of the other better choices for this. Note that cards like Thunder Crash won't work, since they cause Rise of the Snake Deity to miss its timing.
  • Non-Venom Reptiles -- Vennominon and Vennominaga benefit from any Reptile in the graveyard, not just Venoms. Some of the better ones to include in a Venom deck can include Alien Grey, Alien Shocktrooper, Gagagigo, Razor Lizard and even a few Worm monsters. It is reccomended that you avoid including "Granadora", however, if you intend to use "Venom Swamp".
  • Vengeful Bog Spirit -- Prevents monsters from attacking on the turn they are summoned. When Venom Swamp is in play, this will weaken opposing monsters by 1000 ATK before they are able to make their first move. If you have a face-up Venom Boa, this will ensure that any non-tribute monster your opponent summons will be destroyed before they even get a chance to use them.
  • Light of Intervention -- Venom Swamp can't place counters on face-down monsters--with this, even a defending opponent will be losing their monsters rapidly.
  • Final Attack Orders -- Will allow Vennominon and especially Vennominaga to inflict battle damage upon the opponent most easily, especially since Vennominaga cannot be equipped with a card that would grant it piercing damage. Make sure to activate Final Attack Orders only when ready, however, as most Venom monsters are quite weak compared to most monsters.
