the thing i found the most laughable about Teridax is that his master planning does come of as a bit over the top.
i mean this line from Teridax does come of as a bit silly:
"Little Toa, you have not yet begun to see even the barest outlines of my plans. I have schemes within schemes that would boggle your feeble mind. You may counter one, but there are a thousand more of which you know nothing. Even my... setbacks... are planned for, and so I shall win in the end."
there just something about it that come of like one could joke about it, like how some people make fun of Batman's need to plan for every possible event, be it if he is transported to an alternate reality with flying spaghetti monsters, or if he have to take on Cthulhu himself.
the best part is this from TV Tropes:
One of the Piraka once saw Makuta's plan written out in its entirety. It took up the walls of an entire room, and the Piraka went partially insane after reading it.
is just sounds silly to me.
