    How about Abadox? The whole damn game is inside a monstrous, planet-eating creature. Or level 4 in Gradius V, which is probably the most well-done example of this in a shoot-em-up.

    Okami's water dragon had clearly defined "dry" areas where you can step alongside deadly red rivers. Amaterasu may be a god, but she's accompanied by Issun throughout the game. I'm pretty sure there's a Jonah scenario in one of LucasArts' ~199x games. Borderlands 2 Pirate DLC has a battle against a Rakk Hive in the stomach of a giant worm called The Leviathan. A Rakk Hive is comparable in size to an elephant. Earthbound's final battle arguably takes place inside a reproductive system, but your party's robots so that's okay.

    I remember there was a level like this in Kid Icarus Uprising. The boss from that level was so infuriatingly hard.

    This, Acheesements, and the Bioshock: Infinite prequels articles are some of the best gaming articles I've read in a long time, and they're all on the same page at once!

    Glad you enjoyed all of those :D

    I cant believe you have missed the most disgusting level of all; "Belly of The Beast" from "Trine 2: Goblin Menace".

    In Tales of Monkey Island, there's a whole chapter set inside a giant manatee with one of the characters even drinking its bile. Pretty sure that can't be healthy, although it would probably taste nicer than Jagermeister!

    Remind me to clean my brain out, this was disturbing and yet educational.

    I'll add dante from DMC 3 on the list since he get's eaten after losing to Virgil the first time. And he'll survive cause he's a half demon.

    I have vague memories of a level from Jet Force Gemini for the Nintendo 64, where Lupus (the cyborg dog) has to enter a giant worm-like creature. I don't remember much about the level, but I do recall lots of ant-people with firearms, shootouts, door-opening technology that really shouldn't be present inside a living creature's digestive tract. Oh, there was also a cutscene where our cyber-dog appears to be using his hover thruster thingies to fly out of the worm creature's anus. Classy, Rare. I don't remember any stomach acid in that level, but I do know that Lupus shouldn't have survived simply because the area surrounding the worm was nothing but lava and rocks (heck, I think the worm was actually floating on the lava in some spots); if you understand how convection works, then you'd know the heat from the lava alone would've called for both the worm and Lupus' deaths of we were to apply logic to any Rare game ever.

    That was a great list. Keep up the good stuff
  • JarkayColt - April 24, 2013 2:59 p.m.

    Haha wow, how has this article not existed before now? XD "The gut level" is such a common game cliché by this point. Great list. I know you have Bowser's Inside Story on there, but there was also that one part in Partners in Time where they traverse Yoob's Belly. I also would have put Kid Icarus Uprising on here for that one Chapter that takes place inside Hades' body. All the enemies are cellular versions of the regular enemies in the game; it's a pretty damned hilarious level too.
  • shawksta - April 24, 2013 7:03 p.m.

    All 3 Mario and Luigi games had a form of being inside a monsters belly, the original had Mario and Luigi fight Cackletta's spirit inside Bowletta. Wonder how Dream Team will pull it off
  • JarkayColt - April 25, 2013 3:33 a.m.

    Oh, yeah, I forgot about that XD It will be interesting to see if Dream Team follows the trend, although IMO being able to physically enter the dreams of another is pretty close as it is. [Insert tangent] In could probably get an entire other list out of games/levels taking place specifically in dreams or a character's mind. Link's Awakening, SMB 2, the Pokémon Dream World, Clank's Subconscious (A Crack in Time), Dr Herbert Higginbotham's brain (LBP2), Magicant (EarthBound) fact, there's so many I expect a list like that already exists. :/
  • shawksta - April 25, 2013 6:36 a.m.

    Yes but, this is Alpha Dream were talking about here. Bowser's Inside Story, while it was put in for laughs and Body Problems, had a load fetishes, but thats only if you think about it that way XD. Also, i wouldnt be suprised if Subcon from SMB2 or Wart makes an appearence, especially since Wart only made appearences in SMB2 and Links Awakening, which were both DREAMS
  • KA87 - April 24, 2013 2:28 p.m.

    Dot Hack///Sign (however that went). They actually have you enter some dungeons by walking in some giant creatures mouth as it watches you. Things to see: Monsters, Barrels, Skeletons, Torchs, Treasure, and Those annoying Grundy food (Bearcat Eggs, Bearcat egg, Bearcat egg, Bearcat egg........................................................ Okay, I will pick you up so that you can become Grundy poo. Are you happy now?).

    How did you miss Clanker from Banjo Kazooie?!
