OQ #24: Images and Words

Another visual quiz for today.

1. X is the hero of a Nintendo DS game, Boing! X DS, which was released in Japan, North America and Europe. He has a wide variety of merchandising such as cell phone straps, keychains, and plush dolls. He is one of the most recognized characters in Japan. Identify.

2. Such a sitter I'm not even sure why I'm asking: These two players are part of an elite list. Who are the remaining two members in the list?

Memory test.
"This one is for the books."
Identify the headline, and put fundae.

Pictures 1 and 2 are the flag and the coat of arms respectively, of the third largest city in Ireland.
Picture 3 is the photograph of an artist, illustrator, author and poet, a popular figure in 19th century Britain.

This is somebody's high school yearbook picture.
The caption says "We go play hoop" and the inscription reads "Thanks Tut, Gramps, Choom Gang, and Ray for all the good times". Choom is slang for “pot smoking”.
Who is this not-so-infamous person? (apologies for bad picture quality)
