Much like Invader Zim, Plankton from SpongeBob Squarepants and the hapless Dr. Doofenshmertz from Fineas ands Ferb, Centimental the psychic centipede is the Little Villain That Could.... Not. Frequently, and often. Thankfully, despite how tortured his life as an evil-doer has been, his development during the concept stage was almost entirely flawless - it didn't prove that difficult to anthropomorphise a centipede (idiotically-numerous legs notwithstanding), and his final design doesn't actually deviate from what's on this page too much at all. In fact, the only thing that got the boot at any stage were the big mandibles Centy initially had poking out of his 'cheeks': they simply looked distracting - to say nothing of making it very hard for him to talk properly - and their removal made him look far more relatable and (don't let Centimental hear me say this) vulnerable; exactly what such a failure-prone character inevitably projects, unwittingly or not. 'Cause how dangerous can a centipede be without poison pincers? Well, given his subsequent success rate, I'd have to say 'not very'....
