Talk:The Golden Helmet

Page contents not supported in other languages.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


"The helmet has a similar effect to J.R.R. Tolkien's One Ring but the reason lies in their minds rather than any magical curse."

Could you expand a little? The effect of the helmet seems to be very similar to the effect of the one ring. Magic, as Galadriel explains in LOTR, is just a human concept, and she seems actually insulted that the term magic is used both for what she can do and for the 'tricks' of the enemy. Also, the ring was not cursed per se, but had power put into it.

The difference seems to be that the one ring takes characteristics of a person that may be good in themselves, then twists them for evil purposes. For instance, Sam fantasizes for a moment that with the power of the ring, he would turn the whole world into a beautiful garden, then realizes that that would be bad too: the world does not need to be a garden.

From your article, it seems the helmet is more like the mask in the movie The Mask.branko

The helmet is an object that creates ideas of power in the owner's mind. The moral of the story is that mere men aren't meant to have such power. 惑乱 Wakuran (talk) 04:38, 19 December 2011 (UTC)[reply]
