Some of the most popular heroes in fantasy movies are not on quests in magical lands, they're just stoned. It makes sense if you think about it: What besides drugs makes you see fire-breathing dragons? (That was just your dad—he found your stash.)

Inspired by Your Highness, the stoner fantasy adventure directed by genre aficionado David Gordon Green and starring his boy, Complex cover dude Danny McBride, our folks at NextMovie compiled a list of the Nine Other Fantasy Characters Who Were Clearly Stoned

From backwards talking aliens promoting inner peace to a gargantuan turtle who seems content to just loaf around in his swampy bachelor’s pad, these characters would be a blast to bring to a party but we wouldn’t count on them to save the day.
