Behind the scenes

  • In the game files, this mask is internally named "Merman."
  • It bears a strong resemblance to the face of The Creature from the Black Lagoon.
  • Fastnacht is an annual carnival celebrated by Swiss and German people while traditionally wearing masks that represent demons, jesters, witches and animals. In Helvetia, West Virginia it is normally celebrated once per year on the first weekend after Fat Tuesday,[1] and concludes with the burning of an effigy in a bonfire, without any robots or megasloths.[2]
