Tulpas and Tulpa-like Things in the Media

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else heard of, or seen the series premier, of the new SYFY show "Happy!" which was based off of the comic book of the same name?

The game Finding Paradise, the sequel to To the Moon, is one such case. I really don't want to spoil anything for this, because it's quite an experience, especially if you loved the first game. So stop reading and check it out!

 

So this is one of the big plot twists (so stop reading if you haven't played it!!), but one of the characters in the game is undoubtedly a tulpa. They don't use the word tulpa, but it fits the bill quite nicely. I'm still not sure what the developer of the game is trying to tell us with the departure of her character in the patient's life, but her character isn't portrayed as a negative thing for him, so there's that. I have to say though, their last conversation with each other did make me tear up. Not saying any names, but it will be pretty easy to tell once you play it.


I have 10 tulpas, but I'm only actively working on Reah, my first tulpa currently.

There's a Brazilian movie and TV show called "the invisible woman". It's in Portuguese and it doesn't say anything tulpas, but the way it's shown is very similar to tulpamancy.

Ruby Sparks.

He does not talk about tulpas, but the main character uses the tulpa creation method unconsciously and manages to impose his tulpa

I think we can say the movie "Harvey" could be in the running. Clearly, it didn't use 'tulpa' as a descriptor, but I doubt any credible US source had the word tulpa when that movie came out.

 

I would argue for 'tulpa' being a part of Fight Club.
