Riddle: "I am a pet in the game. You can read this riddle with the help of my brother. Who am I?"

Answer: Redwoofox

"You can read the riddle with the help of my brother Firefox" says Redwoofox. Redwoofox looks like the popular Firefox pet so they are like brothers. Yes, I know it was a bit difficult. Many of you said Eyeorwhat as you need eyes to read the riddle but the part with the brother would not make sense in this case.

Unfortunately, nobody solved the riddle.

I wonder who is still participating in these contests. I gave up after the "frightful hare costume". Everybody knew it was a rabbit, but that was not enough as people need to think exactly the same way as the riddle author. So what are some of the more obvious answers:
1. Eyeorwhat - you need eyes to read.
2. Lampcess - you need light to read.
3. Jinntonic -> lamp -> light -> read.
4. Teslarr -> electricity -> light -> read.
5. Sunnya -> sun -> light -> read.
6. Luchtablong -> brain -> you need to know how to read.
7. Most of the fire pets can be associated to fire and therefore something that helps you read in the dark.
...
And in the end we have Firefox :bw:

"I am a pet in the game. You can read this riddle with the help of my brother. Who am I?"

I get your point but all other pets only cover the "you need eyes" part but not the brother. "Brother" was added for a reason.

I answered matchlit. If I were to print this riddle onto some paper and use a another matchlight to read it while it's dark...
I'm sorry, but this puzzle had way too many answers.

Probably am only one that went with Octoboss. :P
Having big brother Octopus that gives ink with which you can write was somewhat logical.
But I must admit that Redwoofox also seems rather logical answer to give even tho not that many people use Firefox as browser. :D
