When Gizmo starting acting like Rambo in Gremlins 2, I almost broke out in applause. I loved the Rambo movies and the idea of Gizmo emulating this killing machine was so silly, that I could not help but break out in a giant goofy smile. I always thought more would be made of this more proactive Gizmo, maybe in an animated series, but sadly nothing ever materialized.
Thankfully artists like Too Much Bowser also appreciated Gizmo as a fighting machine and he does a good job of capturing the dangerous swagger of this mogwai on the warpath.
