Aoshima is a dolphin-like creature seen during one of Mabel Pines' Smile Dip-induced hallucinations.

History[]

In "The Inconveniencing," Mabel rides Aoshima in a sugar induced hallucination caused by eating "bleventeen" packs of Smile Dip. Mabel claims that the future is in the past. It appears as a flying dolphin with a small, yellow bow tie with two muscular human-like arms. After spinning around, it grows another dolphin-like head and two more muscular human arms, one from each mouth. On each palm of its hands are dolphin faces, which shoot rainbow-colored rays from their mouths. While the creature is doing so, a car alarm can be heard.

In "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality," Aoshima is briefly seen in Mabeland. It was later seen during Dipper's trial, sitting down with the other residents. After Mabel lost control over Mabeland, Aoshima turns evil and tries to kill the twins, Wendy, and Soos, but is destroyed when Mabel popped the bubble containing Mabeland.

Appearance[]

Aoshima first appears as a dolphin with a yellow bow tie and muscly arms in place of its fins, the hands of said arms being clutched into fists. It then undergoes a series of transformations: By spinning around, it gains an additional head; one arm emerges from each head; finally, all fists open, revealing dolphin faces that emit rainbow-colored rays.

Trivia[]

  • Aoshima is named after animation director John Aoshima. Tyler Chen came up with the idea for the name.[1]
  • In Japanese, "Aoshima" can be written as "アオシマ" or in the Kanji form "青島". In addition to a Japanese surname, "青島" can refer to two Japanese islands and is also the traditional Chinese characters of Qingdao (a Chinese city).
  • In the end credits of "The Inconveniencing," the cryptogram reads "Onwards, Aoshima!" a reference to Mabel's line earlier in that episode.
