Honestly, I have no clue where these things came from. You can find them everywhere, from things like Dungeons and Dragons to Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. They are also sometimes called Ooze. I assume they come from Japan really because most things like this seem to. They have even made their way into movies. That is why they made this list for me, not because they are all around great but because they simply are into everything. So enjoy some examples, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
