Green-Skinned Space Babe

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to: navigation, search
"Just once, I want to be captured by the sexy alien!"
Dr. Rodney McKay, Stargate Atlantis

An exotic yet attractive female alien, tending to look exactly like an attractive female human except for odd coloring and a couple minor features added.

Named for ye olde originale Green-Skinned Space Babe Vina, played by the late actress and director Susan Oliver, all the way back in "The Cage", the first Star Trek pilot. Well, the green Orion slave girl was one of the guises that her character took, at least. Interestingly enough, it was the one Pike was almost certainly going to fall for, before stuff happened.

A Weird Science staple, usually coming from a Sensuous Culture. See also Boldly Coming. May overlap with Cute Monster Girl.

This trope is part of a larger Double Standard when it comes to science fiction: male aliens can be any shape or form, and very often are to show exactly how "alien" our extraterrestrial friends are, whereas female aliens (barring comedic exceptions) have to be humanoid enough to be attractive to male audiences. Thus you'll see alien women with plenty of Non-Mammal Mammaries. To further accentuate the Fan Service, they also tend to wear Stripperiffic clothing, often justified by saying that in their native culture it's as ordinary as shirts and pants (or dresses) are for us.

Despite the name, blue seems to be a more prominent color nowadays (presumably due to Little Green Men becoming a Dead Horse Trope).

Warning: There may be some disagreements as to who will carry any children resulting from the union.

Examples of Green-Skinned Space Babe include:

Anime and Manga[edit | hide | hide all]

  • Martian Successor Nadesico parodies this trope by introducing Aquamarine, a cookie-cutter character of exactly this type in the Show Within a Show Gekiganger 3. The protagonist Akito immediately identifies her as his dream girl, but when he finally meets a young woman with a similar name (just "Aqua") who appears superficially similar, she turns out to be a borderline psychotic with suicidal tendencies.
  • To LOVE-Ru has a fair number of these, of both genders: three Devilukean princesses Lala, Momo and Nana, Zastin, Lala's father back in the days, Ren and Run, Yami and Mea, Dr. Mikado and Tearju Lunatique.
  • Super Dimension Fortress Macross, features a Green Haired Space Babe: Milia Fallyna is especially notable for falling in love with her target after losing to him in battle then seeking him out to defeat him on board the ship. He misunderstands her intentions and takes her to an arcade where he defeats her in a video game. Afterward she tries to kill him with a knife. He wins again and she breaks down since he's the first person she's never been able to beat.
    • Notably, among all the similarities between Macross and the other two series' used to make Robotech is that all three of them have a green-haired alien girl who ends up falling for one of the good guys: Musica in Southern Cross and Sara in Mospeada.
  • Subverted in a recent[when?] Dragonball web-broadcasted special. Vegeta's hitherto unmentioned brother is married. Assuming the rare examples of women in the series are the norm, everyone is surprised when she turns out to be a cartoonishly cute alien—except Roshi, who figures aliens marrying humans is just as strange. Which earns him a beatdown from Bulma & Chi Chi.
    • Another fine example is Zangya, who is a more literal example as well.
    • The advent of Dragon Ball On-Line brought us the Majin race, and several pink skinned space babes. Much to the delight of certain fans.
  • Keroro Gunsou has several, ranging from regular character Angol Mois to Space Policewoman Poyon to single-appearance ones.
  • Lum in Urusei Yatsura certainly qualifies, as her green hair, fangs, and horns do nothing to hide the fact that she is extremely attractive (actually, they add to it). The fact that most of the time she only wears a tiger print bikini with matching boots doesn't help much...
  • The Mazones of Captain Harlock are an entire race of these. They're also Plant Aliens and at least one Half-Human Hybrid exists.

Comic Books[edit | hide]

  • Xavin of Runaways has achieved this title recently with his/her female Skrull form.
    • Xavin's lover and Runaways charter member Karolina 'L.S.D.' Dean is a Iridescent/Psychedelic-Skinned Space Babe in her own right. And Karolina didn't have to seduce Xavin; they were already betrothed by arranged marriage when they met.
  • Predating Xavin by some 20 years, there is Gamora. And she fits this trope to a tee, right down to the, ah, appetite. She's also immortal, an assassin, and recognized as "the most dangerous woman in the galaxy".
  • Mantis of The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy fame, something of an inversion, as she was originally a normal human who through alien foster care and Because Destiny Says So, was chosen as the Celestial Madonna and developing Psychic Powers and later the ability to resurrect into plant based bodies that have taken on a more greenish tint than her original look.
  • Used delightfully but deceptively in Top Ten in the form of retired heroine/alien pornstar M'rgalla Qualtz, the Vigilante from Venus. Her true form turned out to be a huge green insect thing
  • Lyja is another example of an attractive female Skrull, who Johnny Storm fell in love with after he got over the whole Skrull thing.
    • Long before that, in the early Lee/Kirby era, there was an instance of mutual attraction between Johnny and the Skrull princess Anelle (who later became Hulkling's mother because of a tryst with Captain Mar-Vell. And during the Byrne era, he was by no means immune to the charms of green-skinned Earth babe She-Hulk. Who later whould hang out with the sexy Skrull bounty-hunter Jazinda.
    • De'Lila is a Skrull Space Babe who can also hypnotise you.
  • Starfire first appeared as a hot alien babe with orange skin, who learned languages by kissing people. Her general lack of modesty is often used for copious Fan Service, and even her normal hero outfit leaves little to the imagination.
  • Miss Martian of the Teen Titans. In an interesting twist, she's actually a White Martian and monstrously inhuman and hideous in her true form. Think "albino xenomorph".
  • Professor X's galpal Lilandra is a space babe with feathers.
    • Also from X-Men, Mam'selle Hepzibah of the Starjammers is a fuzzy space babe.
  • Alflyse, queen of the Dark Elves from The Incredible Hercules. She will blow your mind.
  • Parodied in Heater Delight, space "commodity" and sometimes-girlfriend of Marvel's Starfox.
  • Jimmy Olsen had Forager for a love interest Alien babe.
  • The Green Lantern Corps being what it is, there are plenty of Green Skinned Space Babes to go around: Katma Tui, Soranik Natu and Arisia Rrab, for example.
    • Kraken started as a literal example, complete with midriff-baring outfit, although her conversion into an Alpha Lantern made her much less attractive.
  • Princess Arkashia, a one-shot character from Empowered, with whom not-yet-Protean sleeps with, catches an alien STD and thus turns from a human into the Blob Monster we know him as.
  • Belgian comic book series Yoko Tsuno features the Vineans, of which the protagonist character is Khany. They all look like this.
  • In the Ice Sword saga in the Italian Mickey Mouse comics, Goofy is chosen to awaken a sleeping princess who has been sent by a shooting star. He first imagines her as a human Princess Classic, but when he finally sees her, he is surprised to see that she is a green-skinned, noseless alien with gigantic bug-like (though cartoony) eyes... Despite this, he still finds her cute.
  • The Tenth Doctor's companion Majenta from the Doctor Who Magazine comics.
  • Tanga, a lavender-skinned space babe super heroine created by Kevin Maguire for the comic book "Weird Worlds" and "My Greatest Adventure".


Film[edit | hide]

  • Female Twi'leks from the Star Wars universe are known for their beauty, and often exploited due to it. They come in green, blue, red, and other interesting hues. The first Twilek female seen in a Star Wars movie was Oola, Jabba the Hutt's ill-fated dancing girl who ends up Rancor chow.
    • Sebulba has a pair of female Twi'leks that he uses as his personal servants. They pretty much act as his massagers and simply as a status symbol.
    • The EU has the Zeltron race (magenta-skinned), who are perfectly aware of their attractive appearance and flaunt it. Some sources also claim they have mild pheromones, but not to the degree of the Falleen (below). They have a reputation (mostly deserved) as cheerful hedonists who'll do Anything That Moves. Both genders are like this.
    • The Falleen (green, but red when excited), who in addition to all being drop-dead gorgeous have powerful sex pheromones under conscious control that work on nearly all humanoid species.
    • Possible male examples are Zabraks, who are said to have a number of female followers.
  • Star Trek (2009). Kirk appears to be in bed with Uhura, but when the lights come on she turns out to be Uhura's roommate, an Orion girl. Who has been told off by Uhura before about bringing men back to their quarters.
  • Blue-skinned women run a Lady Land society in the 60's B-Movie Missile to the Moon. Only in the colorized version, this originally being a B&W film. The GSSB attitude was there from the beginning, though.
  • Brilliantly subverted in Galaxy Quest. Laliari looks like a hot chick but is really a squid disguised by a hologram. Oddly, this doesn't stop her from falling in love with Fred... or vice versa.
  • Neytiri, of Avatar, is a blue-skinned space babe. In fact, all the Na'vi, male and female, qualify as blue-skinned space babes. The whole species is damned pretty.
  • Male example in Earth Girls Are Easy. We have Blue, Red, and Yellow Alien Space Hunks in the forms of Jim Carrey, Jeff Goldblum and Damon Wayans. But only when their body fur is shaved off .
  • Another male example: The ever growing fandom for Megamind seems almost entirely made up of fangirls for the titular alien.
  • Jay muses about this in Clerks II.

You know, sometimes I wish I did a little more with my life instead of hanging out in front of places selling weed and shit. Like, maybe be an animal doctor. Why not me? I like seals and shit. Or maybe an astronaut. Yeah. Like, be the first motherfucker to see a new galaxy, or find a new alien lifeform... and fuck it. And people'd be like, "There he goes. Homeboy fucked a Martian once."

  • Loki in Thor qualifies as a male example once his Jotun heritage is revealed. Considering the other Jotnar look monstrous, and Loki just looks like Tom Hiddleston with blue skin, red eyes and some decorative face ridges, he at least subverts the Double Standard.


Literature[edit | hide]

  • Dejah Thoris of the John Carter of Mars series is a red-skinned space babe; apart from that, she may be the ur-example. There are also literal green females on Mars, but they don't qualify as babes. Then again...
  • Though not portrayed as sexy (she is from a book written in 1897 by a German science teacher), the Martian La from Auf zwei Planeten (Two Planets) by Kurd Laßwitz is shown as attractive. She has large eyes that change color and reddish-blond hair. She ends up marrying Earthman Josef Saltner.
  • Aelita from the book of the same name is another old (and blue) example.
  • In the Viagens Interplanetarias cycle by L Sprague De Camp, one of the prominent planets, Krishna, is populated by a humanoid species that happens to be sexually compatible with humans (though matings won't result in offspring). Some of them wear nothing but jewellery and body paint. Needless to say, one of the human characters gets to seduce a local princess. (The Krishnans are actually depicted as green-skinned humanoids in the GURPS adaptation of the setting as a tabletop game.) De Camp knew exactly how unlikely this would be, but wanted to write swashbuckling, two-fisted adventure stories ... In Space! , and worked very hard to come up with a setting that would let him get away with this, without being as utterly stupid as the premise of the John Carter of Mars series. The biological difficulties are frequently lampshaded, and provide a fair amount of the comedy in the series.
  • A short story by James Tiptree, Your Haploid Heart, features an outwardly humanoid and physically seductive human species (the Flenni), but the problem is that they happen to be just a phase in a complex reproductive cycle, and their post-coitum lifespan is counted in weeks.
  • Hitchhikers Guide: Eccentrica Gallumbits, The Triple-Breasted Whore of Eroticon Six.
  • The Queen of Perelandra is her world's Eve, and thus the first of many Green Skinned Space Babes to appear on Venus...although she's shielded from the protagonist by an aura of innocence.
  • Fyana, in John Maddox Roberts's Stormlands series, is a Blue-Skinned Post-Apocalyptic Mutant Babe.
  • In The Demon Princes, cosmetic dying is widely used, making Pallis Atwrode a literal example of the trope on her date with the main character; she'd worn a silver tint when they first met. (She's also a Sexy Secretary).
  • S.L. Viehl's Jorenians are an entire race of seven-foot-tall, built-like-a-brick-whatever Blue-Skinned Space Hotties. (However, one should watch out for Accidental Marriages.)
  • Mark Watney invokes this late in The Martian, commenting in his log:

Well, if I could have anything, it would be for the green-skinned yet beautiful Queen of Mars to rescue me so she can learn more about this Earth thing called "lovemaking."
It's been a long time since I've seen a woman.[1] Just sayin'.


Live Action TV[edit | hide]

  • Star Trek had many examples, apart from the original (pictured above):
    • TOS also featured a Green-Haired Space Babe in the person of Shahna the Drill Thrall, in the episode "The Gamesters of Triskelion." Her ignorance of kissing is possibly the original source of another trope, What Is This Thing You Call Love?, applied to space aliens; she requested another example from Kirk to broaden her sample set.
    • Jadzia Dax (the spots go all the way down) More intellectual than the usual Space Babe, but sexy as hell and perfectly willing to indulge her sensual side (her prior male host was a Dirty Old Man and it seems the libido carried over.)
    • The various Star Trek series saw the Orion Slave Girls Flanderized into an entire species of GSSBs.
    • Also from Enterprise is the Andorian Action Girl Talas—Commander Shran's Number Two—who is a Blue Skinned Space Babe.
    • But whenever Harry Kim of Star Trek: Voyager gets any hot space babe action, Janeway has a temper tantrum and invents Star Fleet regulations.
  • Stargate Atlantis: Shephard usually gets the space babe, so in the episode "Harmony", Rodney demands the first chance at the eponymous princess, but then he discovers that she is age 13 and a Royal Brat.
  • The Wild Wild West episode "The Night of the Flying Pie Plate" features several literal Green Skinned Space Babes—at least until it's discovered that they're human women painted green as part of a con game.
  • Mentioned in Red Dwarf by a Genre Savvy Lister:

Lister: Rimmer, there's nothing out there, you know. There's nobody out there. No alien monsters, no Zargon warships, no beautiful blondes with beehive hairdos who say, "Show me some more of this Earth thing called kissing."

    • But that doesn't stop Rimmer...

Lister: I can't wait to see your face in the morning.
Rimmer: Nor I yours, Lister, when that pod opens in the morning and from it emerges a beautiful alien woman with long green hair and six breasts.

    • It turns out that the pod is actually a garbage container. And not an alien one.
    • Ironically, the women of Cat's race all have six breasts.

Captain Hollister: I wonder what the female of the species is like.
The Cat: Pretty easy to please in bed. Especially if you play the piano.

  • A literal green skinned space babe was in Lost in Space. She had a crush on Dr. Smith, who had to use her to find out where to get fuel for their stranded ship.
  • Space Cases had Elmyra, who became the love interest for the Human Alien Radu.
  • Aside from the Sebaceans, Farscape lived this trope - if the aliens weren't actually portrayed by Jim Henson puppets, they were certainly as weird-looking and brightly-coloured as possible. Regular characters include Zhaan (blue from head to toe, as her frequent casual nudity will attest), Chiana (entirely grey, and a nymphomaniac to boot), Jool (human-esque, although with forehead ridges, bright green eyes and giant bushes of hair that changes color when she's angry), and Sikozu (Caucasian-colored skin with fish scale-like patterns, red hair, and teal eyes)
    • In fact Chiana's race, the Nebari (or at least the Nebari most likely to be encountered by other races), like the Twi'leks and Orions mentioned above, seem to have this as their hat, for both the males and females-they're almost all free-love hippie drifters who have no problem at all with casual sex and sometimes have problems with fidelity and settling down. Of course, this turns out to be an evil plan by the Nebari government: only the nonconformists are actually allowed to leave, and when they do, unknown to them they're secretly infected with an STD that can be activated to put whoever's had sex with them under the mind control of the Nebari
  • Quite a few Doctor Who examples, including Chantho and Jabe - the former has mandibles and the latter is technically an Earth-descended humanoid tree, but that's not stopping anyone. The revival also has female Silurians for those not put off by scales.
  • All of the aliens Tracy Morgan meets in his "Astronaut Jones" sketches on Saturday Night Live.
  • In the new series of Beverly Hills, 90210 Naomi paints herself Na'vi blue to impress her geeky crush.


Music[edit | hide]

  • "My Alien", from Simple Plan:

She has two arms to hold me
Four legs to wrap around me
She's not your typical girlfriend...

  • Jamiroquai's "Cosmic Girl":

Step into my transporter
So I can teleport ya
All around my heavenly body

  • The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band's "Beautiful Zelda" (though in their TV performance she seems to be a rather boxy Robot Girl).

She's broken all the super-hearts
Of the super-heroes of the galaxy
So why does she want to
Mess around with me?
Beautiful Zelda from Galaxy Four
Suddenly walked through my door

  • "Now here's a story that must be told, it's kinda new, not very old, about a female Martian with a wild grin, big orange eyes and green skin. Blue was her hair, she came from way up there, she wore silver underwear, almost naked, but she didn't dare. - Martian Girl, by The Aquabats
  • Katy Perry plays a white skinned space babe in her video for E.T.
  • Devo's "Space-Girl Blues," a song from their demo period which was covered by Toni Basil. The lyrics were inspired by an issue of DC's Mystery in Space.

Space girls are as cold as ice
They'll kiss you once and kiss you twice
You'll shiver, shake, and then turn blue
Then you've got the space girl blues
I want your mechanism!
Give me your mechanism!

Tabletop Games[edit | hide]

  • Warhammer 40,000 has a couple of examples;
    • Eldar fit the trope, but not even the most Xeno-loving human should ever consider mating with Eldar, since they see this mostly as bestiality (especially with Craftworld Eldar). Dark Eldar are mostly fine with torturing you, though. Death by snu-snu is optional.
      • Old and most likely un-canon'd background mentions Eldar outcasts occasionally having relationships with humans.
    • The Tau also fit the trope as blue-skinned space babes, considering the fact that they're the most open species in the 40K universe, and mating with humans would not be exactly outlawed. The hooves are another matter.
    • As Tau can not mate outside of their caste, it my be frowned upon.
  • Nazzadi women from Cthulhu Tech are often treated as such by the artists on this project. Seriously, go through the books and try to find one Nazzadi female who isn't Stripperiffic.
    • The fact that they have no nudity taboo doesn't help matters.

Theater[edit | hide]

Video Games[edit | hide]

  • Talana, the Syreen commandress from Star Control 2, is a textbook example (she even comes from a whole race composed mostly of beautiful blue-skinned women). Given the tone of the game, this is heavily lampshaded.
  • Psyme, one of your two possible Love Interests from Sigma Star Saga, is a Purple-Skinned Space Babe.
  • Elerians, one of the playable races of Master of Orion 2, are purple and blue-skinned space babes (the males of the species are never seen).
  • A common enemy in Redneck Rampage is just that; leather clad sadomasochistic big-breasted green/blue/red skinned alien babes who seem very interested in tying up and/or getting beat up by the redneck main characters. Arguably a parody of the trope. Despite claiming to love you, they'll just kill you dead unless you kill them first.
  • In Mass Effect, the asari are a race of blue-skinned space babes who can mate with any race (and any gender). They're even encouraged to do this (mixed-genetics children are thought to be hardier) to the point where pure-bred asari children are discriminated against. Liara mentions all of this:

Liara: Adolescent males have an unhealthy obsession with my people.

    • A seemingly disproportionate number of asari are involved in exotic dancing. Then again, this is somewhat justified by their long lifespans, which can crack past a millennia. Many asari will engage in "wild child" activity for a stretch in the maiden stage before moving on to family in the matron stage and positions of importance in the matriarch stage.
    • One asari actually turns green after an unfortunate encounter with an ancient plant-alien. She has a crush on Shepard.
    • The asari are also parially a deconstruction of the concept, what with being the most advanced and powerful race in the galaxy. There's also a scene where a turian, salarian, and human are watching an Asari dancer, and they all think that she looks like their species. This lead to the Fan Wank/Epileptic Treesthat they have some sort of mind-control going on to make them seem attractive to all species.
      • ME3 has a major revelation about the Asari. They're only the most advanced race because they've secretly been reverse-engineering the technology belonging to The Precursors. For millenium. While claiming they're so advanced because of inherent virtues.
    • Thane, a drell, is a rare male example. Bonus points for being specifically designed to invoke this trope and appeal to the female fans.
    • Mass Effect 3 finally resolves what quarians look like underneath their masks, but only if you've romanced Tali and make sure the quarian fleet survives the battle over Rannoch. It turns out that they're practically Rubber Forehead Aliens.
  • The Zora are perfect examples of this trope. Well, except for the Zora King...
  • Rola, the player's trainer in Metal Combat, is later revealed to a green-skinned alien woman in disguise.
  • Dr. Anesthesia's superstar persona in Rumble Roses XX.
  • The Draenei women in World of Warcraft fit this perfectly. Where the males of the species are burly catfish-faced oddities who resemble barely-tethered hot air balloons, the females are much more humanoid, keeping only enough alien features to qualify as Fetish Fuel.
    • Also Garona Halforcen: Green, very attractive, and was born on Draenor, not Azeroth. (Originally she was Half-Human/Half-Orc, then RetConned to Half-Orc/Half-Draenei. This opened several PlotHoles that were somewhat fixed by making her the latter through rape, but making her think she was the former, and making her artificially aged.)
      • Female orcs in general can be this, mixed with a healthy dose of Hot Amazon, but they're far from universally attractive.
  • Krystal from Star Fox. Bonus points for being a blue space babe in a game whose whole cast already consists of cartoon animals in space.
  • Rift has Blue Extradimensional Babes with a dash of Statuesque Stunner and/or Amazonian Beauty, and Gray Tribal Elf Babes.
  • Aliens in The Sims 2 often come with maxed out Outgoing and Nice. One with a Romance aspiration can be very good at wooing plenty of Sims very quickly.
  • But many still seem to think that Kerrigan as the Queen of Blades from StarCraft is very attractive.
    • Compared to the rest of her race, she certainty is.
      • Though some people noted that the queens look disturbingly attractive, despite having very vague resemblance to humans, and only from waist up.
  • Obviously, the Orions in Star Trek Online. The females have the ability to induce confusion, as well as have a natural resistance to confusion and generate less threat than other races thanks to the natural pheromones they give off. As mentioned in the TV section above, the females rule the race (and the Orion Syndicate that rules the race) because of this.

Web Comics[edit | hide]

  • Schlock Mercenary got some humanoids, but no quite Human Aliens. Jevee Ceeta fits the image well (there was even some Ship Tease), yet turned out to be a member of the genetically modified race of humans with photosynthetic skin ("purp"), not an alien.
  • Parodied an an early Sluggy Freelance plotline: There is a Green-Skinned Space Babe, but it turns out (s)he's the male of that species. Riff and Torg oddly don't seem to care, and continue ogling him as blatantly as before.
    • Aylee plays this straight when not in a draconic or serpentine form.
  • Subverted in The Inexplicable Adventures of Bob. Princess Voluptua looks the part of the stereotypical alien space nymphette, right down to her skimpy one-piece outfit. However, this is an illusion; underneath it, she is a giant butterfly creature. This is common knowledge among the cast, so there is no serious possibility of a relationship between her and Bob, or any other human male. They have kissed, however, much to Jean's consternation. When designing her shapeshifted human form, Voluptua claims to have gotten the normal human female proportions wrong unintentionally; she has not corrected the error.
  • Found in Outsider as a deliberate homage to the tradition.
    • And because it started as a Master of Orion fan-comic, though the serial numbers have now been smudged a bit; two of the main Loroi characters are obvious copies of the Elerian scientist and soldier.
  • MSF High has the true legion, planty alien chicks that can convert other people into more true legion.
  • Emsi of Drunk Aliens has green skin, blue hair, antennae, & a tail.
  • The Perry Bible Fellowship points out certain problems that could arise when sleeping with an alien species here (Link not safe for work).
  • Intragalactic features a gender-flipped example—the Pink-Skinned Space Bish Axl, who has gills and was once a tadpole, but now is the human Captain's Brainless Beauty boyfriend.
  • The hot mom alien from Irregular Elis are a good example.
  • In Nip and Tuck, the Show Within a Show Rebel Cry has them.


Western Animation[edit | hide]

  • A villain in an episode of Eek! The Cat parodying Star Trek uses this exact wording to refer to his highly attractive spies.
  • A lampshade hanging of this occurs in Futurama, in the episode where Zapp Brannigan tricks Leela into sleeping with him. From the Captain's Log, dictated to Kif at the end of the episode:

"We have failed to uphold Brannigan's Law. However, I did make it with a hot alien babe. And in the end, is that not what man has dreamt of since first he looked up at the stars?"

    • Of course, the irony when you realize that Leela turns out to be a mutant human, not an alien, makes it even more hilarious.
    • To many women over the course of the show, Kif is the green skinned space babe.
  • Grandpa Max of Ben 10 married a purple-skinned energy being (who hides it well) and later dated a literal Green-Skinned Space Babe.
  • The ultimate dream of Jamie in Megas XLR is to visit a planet full of these. He even picked up a few such girls in Battle Royale, though it was entirely due to the money he made from betting on Coop's winning streak.

"Coop, what're you doing man? I've got digits from green-skinned girls! GREEN-SKINNED GIRLS!"


Real Life[edit | hide]

  • According to The Other Wiki, one of the symptoms of hypochromic anaemia is green skin, hence the older name "chlorosis".
  • Some children of postmature births may show a green discolouration to the skin.
  • While not green, argyria does discolour the skin, to a blue-grey hue.
  1. At that point, he'd been completely alone on Mars for more than one and a third Earth years.
