...who, during cutscenes, moves the crown around to put it on people's heads?
LOL!  Mango, I grew up on doing that!  My dad used to do it when we would play KQI, and it was something that just kind of stuck.  Haha!  I wish we had an applause emoticon. :D

I can just imagine Alexander holding that skull in front of his face and making a silly monster voice...if only he had a cowardly sidekick like Cedric. ::)
That thing reminds me of the Guardian's head...

Oh my gosh! Yes I've always done that too! I also used to get mesmerised by the way that in KQ6, when the dialog portraits are showing up, the crown icon sits perfectly in the little gold triangle thing. Did anybody else do that?
Yup. I did that and I would stick the hourglass from KQV into the corners of the character portraits.
I never tried to crown anybody (though I will now!), but I always used the hand to pretend I was picking characters' noses. ^_^
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

EVERY SINGLE TIME. ZOMG!

In fact, it is SO second nature to me now that I didn't realize I was doing it in TSL until just now. I was like "They kept the crown? Ohhhhhh yeahhhhhhh THAT'S why everyone has a crown when I look at them." :P

I did the crown-on-heads thing every time. In every KQ game with a crown loading icon.

Wow, this is too funny. I did it for sure in KQ6 and 7 (as well as putting the crown on the 'triangle' too. All the time!

I've done it with anything KQ game (original or remake) that has had a crown! ;D

...who, during cutscenes, moves the crown around to put it on people's heads?

It was something I did a lot during KQVI and VII, and I was so happy to see the crown return so I can continue to crown anybody and everybody!

I've been doing this ever since the crown became part of the games, way back when. I didn't even have to think about it, when playing The Silver Lining. It was essentially a reflex LOL

Oh man, I LOVE putting the crown on people! It's one of my favorite things as well. It's a reflex for me too lol.

I am so overjoyed that there are other insane people out there who have the same habit! My boyfriend tells me I'm adorably nuts, but now I can tell him I am not the only one! ;D

I do that, too :D And one of my friends used to play KQ7, and a few weeks ago we met for a huge KQ7-revival-day where we played the whole game at a stretch, and she kept doing that, too! I think every KQ Fan does that!

I do this! :P But I'm obsessed with anything sparkly or crown-shaped and I'm not sure I would still do it if that weren't the case. ::)

I've done the crown thing too. but I never though of putting the skull over Alexander's face.  Wow.  He looks creepy like that.
