Twisted Metal: Small Brawl


Mortimer is more concerned with solving math problems and performing science experiments than playing with the other kids. So it's not surprising that when Calypso steals his pet frog, Mortimer "willingly" enters the contest to win him back.

Vehicle: Shadow

Ending: Calypso tells Mortimer that he can have his frog back, and that it was making so much noise that he could not go inside the shed in which he kept it in. Mortimer cryptically explains that it is common with frogs that are exposed with radiation and tells Calypso "on second thought, you can keep the frog," before quickly fleeing the scene shouting "victory!" Calypso, who is confused by what Mortimer meant, turns around when the shed behind him starts to violently shake. The shed collapses, revealing the frog has mutated to a gargantous size. Calypso only has time to scream before the frog lashes out its tongue and swallows him whole.

  • "I am not here for my prize, Calypso. It is I who have a gift for you."
  • "These are the souls of the people who have died in you're contest, the poor men and women who were simply walking the streets of the world when your Twisted Metal competitors ran them down. They've hired me to take revenge on you."
