Rorschach Inkblot Test – Orbital

Rorschach inkblot tests provide incredible insight into a person’s personality characteristics and emotional functioning. Regardless of the type of ambiguous design displayed, the answers and information gleaned from them are always fascinating. We’ve learned a tremendous amount about each other through our regular Halo 3 Heatmap tests, and I have no doubt today will prove just as entertaining as previous ones. Before we analyze another image though, let’s take a look at the results from the last one we did which took place back in October. The featured map was Heretic and Not Funny kicked off the comments with a Big Daddy reference. Entirely too many people to count found themselves agreeing.

Heretic Inkblot Test

Other video games are usually a popular answer during these festivities, but someone always brings it back to Halo. DieByYourUncleBob insisted the image bore resemblance to the Grunt Head emblem and numerous others, along with myself, saw it as well.

Heretic Inkblot Test

A few other interesting answers included mendicantbias00 saying Lego Princess Leia and Louis Wu citing Dr. Eggman. Unable to choose my favorite between the two, I thought I would leave it up to all of you to decide which one more resembles the Midship remake.

Heretic Inkblot Test

Right as we ran out of room for picture comparisons, I came across Noah’s response of goatse. Talk about bad timing! Unfortunately I’ll have to leave you to judge the similarity of the images in your head as it’s now time to dissect yet another Halo 3 Global Heatmap. The subject of our twelfth enlightening psychological evaluation is Orbital, a docking-station featuring two overlapping hallways. So tell me, what exactly do you see? And as always, extra nonexistent points for originality!

  4. my butt says:

    Somewhat reminds me of candles/candle holders, the old sort that hang off walls, tried finding an image but no luck =S

    • my butt says:

      My bad for the double post people, when I used the prior name nothing appeared, not even the “awaiting moderation” notice, so I assumed that name wasn’t allowed.

    • my butt says:

      I really don’t understand why people thumb down peoples’ suggestions on here, they’re suggesting what they see on the image, how can you say they’re wrong in regards to what they see? Oh well doesn’t really matter *shrug*

    I have no idea why, but it makes me think of Wall.E.

  12. XMixMasterX says:

    I see a Uterus… just kidding!

    The devil with his pitchfork.


    Mr Crab from Spongebob squarepants with a frightened look on his face.

    • C says:

      I couldn’t agree more – that is 100% Mr. Krabs.

  13. Oddsock says:

    I definitely see the front half of a UNSC Frigate. You know, with those two booms, the top-most one containing the MAC.

  14. crunktag06 says:

    Swimming pool ladder… Definitely a swimming pool ladder.

  15. Someone says:

    I see two fingers sticking up at me

  16. NartFOpc says:

    A Magnet

  19. snipe712 says:

    i see a stapler

  20. Grittack says:

    Brute Spiker, Golden Gate Bridge, and Stairs with railings on both sides.

  21. JLay says:

    It’s the flaming ‘rock on’ fist from the H3 Bungie icons (fist with index and pinky fingers up)!

    • HarbingerDawn says:

      Totally agree

    • Groundmaster says:

      That was the first thing I saw, then I just saw a gun with a bullet below?

  22. Jamasia says:

    .45 Magnum on the left

  23. muisje says:

    its the cooling system at the back of a freezer

  24. DethPwn says:

    Looks like that pitchfork cutaway from Hell’s Kitchen.

  25. ROWEBLAST says:

    Simple, Bart Simpson… spiky hair and all.

  26. Hyokin says:

    I see a Halo: Combat Evolved Covenant Dropship.

    That’s just how obsessive I am. I see something in one Halo game from another. lol

    • Chief says:

      I totally agree, and I understand this obsession(its contagious).

  27. ROWEBLAST says:

    further evidence —>

  28. burning crusade says:

    looks like an egyptain god

  29. LVMaxfield says:

    Looks like some dude at a rock concert, raised arms, fists squeezed, and screamin’ “ROCK HARD”…lmao

  30. DarkSideCookies says:

    At first I saw the name, “Li” but then I saw some shapes. A silenced pistol like the Auto Mag or the USP .45 is on the left in a sea of fire and blood. There’s a Lightsaber hilt in the center of the heatmap. And there’s a Flashlight on the right which apparently is having a tough time of cutting through the fire and gore. And the Lightsaber would have to be a Sith’s Lightsaber such as Darth Vader’s as only fire immediately surrounds it and blood is on either side of that. I think I’m seeing way too much…

  31. Geordie says:

    I see a Spirit Dropship about to land on you.

  32. Firestorm12 says:

    Reminds me of one of those diagrams in anatomy books that shows the digestive system. The funny thing is is that there even seems to be an anus/rectum and the bottom-middle of the map.

  33. Somehow, I see Grim Fandango.

  34. Cleansing Aura says:

    If you turn the left-hand part 90o clockwise, and focus on the space between the red; it looks some kind of hand gun, possible with a silencer. The right-hand gap just looks like a lightsaber handle to me…. possibly too much Force Unleashed?

  35. Jickitaku says:

    A magnet, tuning fork, or a poorly drawn plasma rifle/pistol.

  36. Skittlez says:

    I know someone mentioned it, but without reading their comment, I saw the FAMAS from Modern Warfare 2 as well.

  37. BEOWULF_ _ _ _ says:

    I see dead people…

    • Kyle says:

  38. Chad says:

    Definately Oblina from Ahh Real Monsters.

  49. Halo kid120 says:

    hmmm.. I see spikers or magnums

  50. SomeoneGiveMeCoDMW2 says:

    I see a double-barrelled tazer. Turn it 90 degrees clockwise, you see the handle, the barrels, the pronges, and even the crackling electricity

  51. MineSweeper says:

    I’m seeing a handgun and a tazer pointed upward both shooting off something.

  52. Legohog4001 says:

    Obviously the front of a UNSC frigate

  53. Zee-V70 says:

    It looks like either the Twin Towers or Tesla Coils.

  54. Metalingus627 says:

    Brute Spiker

  55. Dan says:

    somehow at first I saw the Spirit dropship from halo 1, but that doesnt quite work because of the extra bit coming out the side…and with the same thing, a tuning fork?

  56. Fortune says:

    I see a skull, like a secondary one

  57. xLAS3RP01NT3Rx says:

    This is most definitely what I see.
    Rock on, quite.

    Brute Spiker, or Sniper rifle stock

  64. That Laggy Noob says:

    To me it looks like an energy sword

  65. A13 says:

    odd, looks like a big red pile of nothing too me!

  66. chris says:

    it looks like the back of an “A-WING” you know from star wars( not an SW nerd)
    turn head on right shoulder

  67. Shini says:

    duel plasma rifles

  68. StephaBon says:

    I am hoping with all my might no one finds this offensive, as it isn’t meant to be, and I’m not trying to make something like this into a joke. But when I saw that I saw the Twin Towers from 9/11. (Optional: Fire and smoke)

  69. doorstop says:

    might be a bit early or late but i see the world trade centers burning

  70. JesseEK590 says:

    Mr. Krabs from SpongeBob or one of the pacman ghosts if u look at it upside down.

  71. A13 says:


  72. IIII bRian IIII says:

    What I see is bs angel’s double headed sex toy. See, she uses one of the two *CENSORED* shaped devices to ram into her lovely *CENSORED* while at the same moment, the second *CENSORED* shaped object, next the first, is also being thrust into the tight secludes of her *CENSORED*

    The large base connecting these two *CENSORED* is used as a handle for angel’s Olympic grip, which she obtained by *CENSORED*-ing a *CENSORED* while *CENSORED*-ing two different *CENSORED* at the same time using only her *CENSORED* and her abnormally wet *CENSORED* for 45-minute-sessions, 5-times-a-day, 7-days-a-week.

    I must also mention that she did all this while a *CENSORED* was lodged deep into her *CENSORED* and four other *CENSORED* were *CENSORED*-ing all over her *CENSORED* until she *CENSORED* continuously screaming “*CENSORED* my *CENSORED*-ing *CENSORED*!!! Make my *CENSORED* *CENSORED* until I can’t *CENSORED* anymore and then *CENSORED* me again. I wanna feel your *CENSORED* *CENSORED* deep in my *CENSORED*! Fill my *CENSORED* up with your *CENSORED* and then *CENSORED* the rest all over my *CENSORED*!”

    She actually says more than this but the rest includes 98% censored words and frankly I’m tired of pasting the word *CENSORED*

    As you can see from the evidence above, bs angel is clearly a *CENSORED* and we love her for it :)

    • Kyle says:

      you really put a lot of thought into that, didn’t you. oh well. your story above is *CENSORED* amazing.

    • bs angel says:

    Actually, I see a silenced pistol and its clip beside it, lying in a pool of blood.

  76. groggy says:

    the right kinda looks like a pitchfork

  77. Aaron says:

    It looks like a gun and an extra barrel (if you look inside the red lines, the gun is on the left, with the grip pointing to the right, the hammer pointing down, and the barrel pointing up). The spot outlined to the left looks about the same size as the “gun’s” barrel…just my thought.

    (BTW< I just noticed that ||| bRian ||| saw pretty much the same thing…)

  78. wyatt says:

    Something is making me think swastika.

    Rotated 90 degrees to the left it reminds me of the Scion XB.

  93. Mango says:

    I didn’t see anything but an IR signature so decided to use the ‘hidden picture’ technique after I read other’s comments. Unfortunately that, and someone’s “lightsaber” comment, left me thinking of ‘Mallrats’ and now all I can see is that (gratuitous BLAM inserted here) SAILBOAT!!!!

  100. Ultimate Geek says:

    Oddly enough the first thing i thought of was a magnet from microman. I dunno why, i haven’t played that for like 8 years.

    • Ultimate Geek says:

  101. GregW17 says:

    It’s the machine inside the clock tower in Myst (the first game)

    If I’d been in time for Heretic, I would have said an overhead view of the Skyscraper battle map in Mario Kart 64.
