* {{Expy}}: She's partly based on Fan's earlier ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' character, down to name (her name was Kathy), using a scythe, and her love for freaking people out. She's a lot more of an asshole, though. Her color scheme is completely different too (Kathy having pale skin and "blood red" hair, Kath''od''y have tanned skin and yellow hair).

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Tricks the group into thinking there is a Grim Reaper-like figure in the haunted mansion that is Domain 2, then reveals herself as ''fully supporting [=.GIFfany=]'' (unlike Rose, who makes it increasingly clear she isn't), and then tries to come at the group with a scythe.

The professor of fire/heat. A physician and wannabe competitive reality show hostess, she resides in Domain 12, a place deep inside the lower chambers of Parícutin. Most of her domain is dedicated to setting up the stage for a reality show that she drags the gang into. She considers herself "twins" with Burrda.

Burrda.

* AllLoveIsUnrequited: [[WordOfGod Great Pikmin Fan]] confirmed that she had a crush on Ford after a reviewer talked about their interactions. He later confirms it again in a far more blunt manner in general on Tumblr.

to:

* MotorMouth: She's actually holding back when she sneaks on the Construction Site and talks to Ford. Just about the time she meets with the band of four, she rambles a lot more often. Her appearances in derivative works often exaggerate this, although this is because Fan felt that ''run:gifocalypse'' actually downplayed it.



* SpotlightStealingSquad: She's the ''only'' professor (not counting Risen) who appears in more than one of the chapters before her debut. Although to make up for it, her actual battled chapter is near the end of the fan fic.



* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The first thing she does is punch Professor Wendy in the gut and yell at her for being too soft and listening to the humans.

Keep in mind that Professor Wendy is -- or rather, was -- one of the more trigger-happy copies. Hell, ''Rose'' struggled to find something positive to say about her.



* FinalExamBoss: Another in-universe video game trope the Pines have to go against. Not only do they have to face against every single Main Possession they had before (excluding the Planet Negation Girl), not only do they have to remember all thirteen of them after four years of being at peace with the [=.GIFfanys=], but they also have to ''actually fight them this time'', and cannot simply trick her into letting them destroy her tools.

The copies created by the PNG, making up [=.GIFfany=]'s army for the endgame.

* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: Although "DLC" retroactively makes it the penultimate episode, they're still introduced at the tail end of the original second-to-last chapter.

!! Professor Courtlyn

The most noteworthy of the second generation (and all other generations, for that matter). A gray-haired copy in a suit and glasses that acts as the "New Dove," although she has nearly the exact opposite personality as her blood-haired predecessor.

* TheDragon: To [=.GIFfany=], after Dove's firing. She's the main second generation copy, and she gets a special one-on-one fight with the townsfolk while the other second-gens are quickly dealt with leading up to the battle.
* MeaningfulName: It's got "court" in it. She's also the new legal advisor.
* TheOmniscient: Or, ''nearly''. Her specialty is performing "predictions," where she roughly estimates what her given enemies will do next. However, doing something downright ''stupid'' will stump her prediction -- like sending nothing but the animated wax head of someone as your first line of defense when

to:

* ShoutOutThemeNaming: Kimberly and Victoria are named after two naked [=NPCs=] from the third and fourth (respectively) ''Epic Battle Fantasy'' games. (Fan likes ShamelessFanserviceGirl[=s=].) Taro is named after the then-placeholder name of the stalking target of ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', which is actually one of only ''two'' references the fic has to that game[[note]]Fan is '''highly''' skeptical of ''Yandere Simulator''[='=]s future, namely how original its writing would be compared to other "you play as the monster and the best ending is where the events of the game don't happen at all" games[[/note]]. Takeshi is a reference to ''VideoGame/TakeshisChallenge'', and Gerald is part of Burnda and Burrda's ''WesternAnimation/PerfectHairForever'' references.

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''']]

!! Professor Eve (Number: 3693092) [Probably not that number -- might just throw that to Courtlyn.]

* AllYourPowersCombined: Her Main Possession is a [=.GIFfany=] replica robot that can shape-shift into the traits of all the past Main Possessions. Because the author did not want to "END end" the story on a note that's just throwing past stuff again, she also fights on her own with her own moves.
* BrownNote: She claims that looking at the sky of her pocket dimension will kill humans, as they cannot process it like [=AIs=] can. The sky ''is'' weird there, but it's not ''lethal'' -- Mabel eagarly looks up once they finally get past the giffinium barrier and finds out that the "killing" part is BS.
* CallBack: She's basically faced off like a "regular" monster from canon would -- she isn't reasoned with and instead ends up getting outsmarted and bested physically. She's also more of a symbolic battle between the downward spirals Dipper and Mabel had gone through, and her defeat ultimately marks their recovery.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: While the vanilla story was this for Soos and the [=.GIFfany=] copies, Eve's encounter is this for the younger Pine twins, as they start to recover from their split caused by the events of the fic. And in an appropriate manner too -- a throwback to canon.
* EldritchLocation: She ''makes'' them, and she spent the entirety of the Gifocalypse tucked away in one. Not that this stopped Risen from finding her and assimilating her too in the special ending, although according to Fan she ended up putting a hell of a fight.
* EmpathicEnvironment: The sky in her pocket dimension gets more fucked up as she takes damage, and the setting in general begins to warp around more and more.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The first thing she does is punch Professor Wendy in the gut and yell at her for being too soft and listening to the humans.
* EvilCounterpart: She's this (or, an Evil''er'' Counterpart) to Risen, believe it or not.
* {{Expy}}:
** Battle-wise, of Delirium from ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac: Afterbirth+''. (Semi-appropriate as she's named after a character from that game, as is her expy in the ''HRT'' series.) The TrueFinalBoss that shape-shifts into all previous bosses of the adventure leading up to it, is found in a clusterfuck MindScrew of an area, and even has an association with static.
* FinalExamBoss: Another in-universe video game trope the Pines have to go against. Not only do they have to face against every single Main Possession they had before (excluding the Planet Negation Girl), not only do they have to remember all thirteen of them after four years of being at peace with the [=.GIFfanys=], but they also have to ''actually fight them this time'', and cannot simply trick her into letting them destroy her tools.
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** In the official ending version of chapter 13, the group is attacked by some arm "split" in red, green, and blue. This turns out to be Eve herself, briefly leaking into the [[TheVoidBetweenWorlds Void Between Wires.]]
** Professor Wendy's CharacterBlog ends with mentioning of her. At first it seems like a cliffhanger that will intentionally never be answered, but it turns out that it was actually foreshadowing the extra chapter.
* {{Jerkass}}: Probably the biggest of them all, and that is saying a lot. She thinks P. Wendy, ''Dove'', and '''Risen [=.GIFfany=]''' are all too ''soft''.
* GiantFootOfStomping: When mimicking Shannon's Main Possession, she prefers using a bunch of feet to try stomping on the Pines.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Didn't read ''SBIG'', specifically ''The Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage''? Didn't read Professor Wendy's CharacterBlog? Then she and her chapter will come out of fucking nowhere, with only minimal foreshadowing from the official ending.
* InterfaceSpoiler: Her chapter existing could have only really been shocking once "Game Over" and "Game Complete" were out and it seemed like the story ended. Now, the sheer fact that there is a chapter after the ones labeled "Official Ending" and "Special Ending" gives away that the adventure isn't quite over. In fan's defense, he at least waited half a month before he even started writing this.
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Even by the standards of the Arc 3 professors (WordOfGod places her, and her alone, under a special Arc ''4''.), the way her chapter plays out is completely against the tradition that the story itself set up. She's faced after a four year+ TimeSkip, resides in a PocketDimension rather than a real-world location (even the PNG is technically one -- space), has no "students," her prior player is completely irrelevant to the story, and she's the one copy that is genuinely just dealt with by force, and only force. She still doesn't die. In a way, her chapter plays out as an odd combination of the formula set up in Arcs 1 and 2 along with the "broken formula" of Arc 3, specifically chapter 13. Soos and Wendy also never directly encounter her -- in the Official Ending, they're both still at Gravity Falls while the Pines are the only ones to take her on. In the special ending, [=.GIFfany=] already reached into the pocket dimension and assimilated her offscreen before she could fight the Mystery Shack group.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Took on Risen [=.GIFfany=] in a pretty intense fight during the events of "Game Complete," which happened offscreen so as to not spoil the fact that she exists -- ''if'' it was read at all, the alternate chapter 13 was written as though it was still read before Eve's chapter.
* PrimaryColourChampion: Incorporates a lot of reds, greens, and blues, in contrast to [=.GIFfany=] using a lot of pink, yellow, and aqua/cyan.
* {{Retcon}}: Well, of chapter numbering. "Game Complete" goes from being chapter 14 to the "alternate chapter 13" (which is less surprising when you consider that, internally, "Game Over" is actually chapters 13, 14, ''and'' 15 split so that it wouldn't be browser-crashingly long), and ''this'' is the bonus fourteenth chapter.
* WalkingSpoiler: Despite keeping the nature of many of them secrets up until their reveal, ''run:gifocalypse'' still constantly presents itself as having fifteen professors. There is a sixteenth one.

** Takeshi is named after [[VideoGame/TakeshisChallenge Takeshi Kitano,]] a man who hates video games and made one such joke game with a number of bizarre features. He is, by far, the one player that opposes the copies more than anyone else -- even Soos was more passive to Risen, as he did not try to attack her completely unprovoked.

Oh, shoot. Quick note to myself so I won't forget: have a joke about Blenda's "working name" being "Professor Burrnda" (I almost typed that for Burnda's name while editing this), which would be read/said as "Burnda With Two Rs," but that they dropped it for being a stupid name for a fusion.

Cue Soos, in a fit of desperation, saying that he wants to be downloaded into [=.GIFfany=]'s game and just live with her forever (it helps that she was the ''first'' to call Melody out for shagging Stan behind everyone's back, especially during the hostile rivalry of Nazi-calling from both sides of the "debate," and most of her arguments were about how much the whole thing weighed on Soos). And cue [=.GIFfany=] freaking out over it, saying that she doesn't want this anymore, and working her ass off to try getting the harem to make back up.
** Instead of building an army (as in ''Gifocalypse''), the reason why there are more [=.GIFfany=] copies than the ones initially produced as the factory were due to a backfired version of this trope. Dipper gets sick of all the naked [=.GIFfanys=] running around both the Mystery Shack and Soos's house (despite having their own entire city to hang out in), and convinces #9 to make a device that makes even more of them exponentially to see if he can make Soos, Melody, and Stan (the latter of whom is not involved in a relationship, he just thought it would be a good idea to use them to rebrand the Mystery Shack as a sexy tourist trap) eventually get sick of all the overflowing copies. Especially considering [[{{Yandere}} what]] [[AmbiguousDisorder loose]] [[CloudCuckooland cannons]] the bulk of them are. Mabel warns him that this is a really, really bad idea, and Dipper even links to this very website's trope page only for Mabel to point out the number of times that the trope had ''failed''. Even Stan thinks it won't work ("This is NOT 'make a kid smoke a lot so he doesn't smoke,' it's more of 'give a guy porn so he doesn't look at porn ist' makes sense'"). Sure enough, not only do Soos and Melody (along with Rumble, but he wasn't one of Dipper's concerns) end up loving it.

Her domain, Domain 15, is a mysterious, secretive location of pink metal she only refers to as the "Construction Site." While the...

Or even reached -- she has an endlessly-generated line of "next-gen" professors where, in theory, after "conquering" each one the humans would have several more additional professors they'd have to get through, making it impossible for them to catch up to Risen.
]]



* FunWithAcronyms: The Planet Negation Girl refers to the .PNG image format. It also triples as a ShoutOut to [[VideoGame/TheWonderful101 Jergingha's Planet Destruction Form,]] and foreshadows [[spoiler:that it has a humanoid appearance capable of destroying planets -- hence the ''girl''.]]



* HumanoidAbomination: All of the copies have some shades of this, but she's by far the most eldritch [[spoiler:thanks to being infused with the rift. She's also the only character that can hijack the fourth wall, although seeing as it stops completely once she destroys/seals the rift, it's implied to be directly connected with her rift skills.]]



* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:In both endings. In "Game Complete," she blows up Earth despite already having Soos under her control. In "Game Over," she still kidnaps him (indirectly, Dove did the actual kidnapping but [=.GIFfany=] refused to let him go), kidnaps Melody, at several points implies that she'll go back to resorting to kill the human opposers (as she only does not want to see ''herself'' die), and after all of that... Soos fights her a little, but she deals just as much damage to him in the fist-fight. She gets Easily Forgiven by everyone except Dipper, and the ending there implies that she already got close to what she wanted anyway.]]



* LightIsNotGood: While she's not a light-user per-say, she's still as bright as ever and associated with light colors. Her city is even well-lit at most times, bright, and made of pink giffinium metal. Aside from a pink brighter than any of the professors' hair colors (except Burrda), she's also associated with rainbow. But she's the most dangerous of the bunch.



* MsFanservice: Doesn't seem like it compared to the more bold outfits of the other copies, but starting from chapter 9 she gets a sudden number of nude scenes, flirts and teases with Soos a ''lot'', the story flat-out says that she becomes a walking PantyShot, and she dresses up in a number of revealing outfits just before the final battle. Also, aformentioned chapter 9 goes into ''huge detail'' of her admiring her body, then slapping her ass, which the story indirectly makes clear is not supposed to be "censored" like a copy's frontal nudity would be.

to:

* MotherOfAThousandYoung: [[spoiler:She all-but functions as this once she gets her machines to start the copy army working. However, she still considers all of the next-gen copies as sisters, not daughters. Once she turns it on, at ''no'' point in the story is it ever turned off -- Word of God confirms this (not even during what was otherwise the massive power outage when she's about to possess the entire PNG), and she's still generating copies directly when she hijacks the PNG, and it's still generating them even during her fall from space, the epilogue, and the four-year fastward on Professor Wendy's blog.]]

Also, aformentioned chapter 9 goes into ''huge detail'' of her admiring her body, then slapping her ass, which the story indirectly makes clear is not supposed to be "censored" like a copy's frontal nudity would be. She turns into more of a Ms. FanDisservice by the finale.



* OurFounder: Unlike ''all'' of the other domains, her place eventuallys gets an enormous, "[=3D=] pixel" statue in her image at the greeting site. [[spoiler:Readers are led to think that this is her Main Possession. It's not. The ''entire'' base is.]]

to:

* NukeEm: She lift's [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} Flowey's]] nuclear bomb attack from her Main Possession.
* OurFounder: Unlike ''all'' of the other domains, her place eventuallys gets an enormous, "[=3D=] pixel" statue in her image at the greeting site.site at the Planet Negation Girl. [[spoiler:Readers are led to think that this is her Main Possession. It's not. The ''entire'' base is.]]
* SerialEscalation: She goes from a sapient video game that tries to pull her victim in by insulting his dating skills with real women and using animatronics to attack to a supercomputer evil goddess that instead opts for tempting him with a massive arcade ''planet'' and, when that fails, [[spoiler:she tries to attack him with ''the planet itself.'']]
* TheSingularity: [[spoiler:''Successfully'' pulls at least a soft variation off, regardless of ending. (In the special ending, it's more of a hard variation.) The Planet Negation Girl is a constantly-evolving, constantly-growing, constantly-populated planet-base implied to extend off to even more planets, greatly helped by how the copies now have the power to make metal out of absolutely nothing. She's themed around infinite power, and it's stated that a single chip's worth of PNG technology has more power than all technology made from Earth combined. It's implied that this accidentally helps the world reach more of a utopia state by the end.
]]



* ThatsNoMoon: [[spoiler:Her entire domain also doubles as her Main Possession. It seems like it's completely meant to be a planet base at first, then [=.GIFfany=] uses the power of the rift to help her possess it completely, turning it into a combat mecha.]]

* TookALevelInJerkass: For a "redemption story" [[spoiler:or something of a deconstruction therof]], [=.GIFfany=] spends most of it being ''even worse'' than she was in canon as soon as she gets her memories back. She sees all of her copies as puppets until [[spoiler:Burrda's attempted suicide]], drops the act of being sweet and cheery ''completely'', and at the beginning of chapter 13 part 2, she even screams at Soos to shut up just for asking how long she's pacing back and forth across the room. The only thing she's really improved on is that she does not believe in killing/deleting the enemy (or, she shows more restraint -- she does eventually threaten to kill Soos, but only after the townsfolk ram her plan OffTheRails), and even that's implied to be just because both Rose and Dove both pressured her into not being lethal. She doesn't even really have much of a FreudianExcuse to pass it off -- ''Dove'' is the copy that actually experienced deleting her programmers, the rest just have it experienced in memories, and despite that said other copies are usually better than her.



* {{Mukokuseki}}: As computer programs, they're technically raceless, though several have assigned races both real and [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation fictional]] to their characters. This aside, it's hard to tell just what some of the skin toned-copies are supposed to ''be''. Even the template [=.GIFfany=] being Japanese/Asian is depicted as a firm "maybe," though it's implied that they all are. GPF eventually said that unless Alex Hirsch or another writer were to say otherwise, he considers [=.GIFfany=] to "have started her own race at this point," and the copies are all "of [=.GIFfany=] descent."

* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Sapient lines of code on magic discs with electric powers given dark magic that gave them humanoid forces of their choice. The end result, taking Risen for example, could be described along the lines of "Black Magic Electrical AI Scylla."
* ReedRichardsIsUseless: They can ''make matter from nothing'', which regardless of the type of matter (in this case metal) would still be phenominal with the right tools. And they can do this in mass, quickly creating stable buildings in days at the longest. In general, this would completely eliminate homelessness at the least. Some of them are also rapid food-growers, eliminating world hunger. And Risen has a way of getting unlimited energy and faster than light travel. Too bad they only really care about using these powers to make fantasy lands to impress their players. [[spoiler:Eventually subverted by the ending. Professor Wendy's epilogue post on Tumblr implies that they put these to use to improve the world.]]

* AmbiguousDisorder: Fan said that any resemblance to any actual disorders is coincidental. Canonically, [=.GIFfany=] could be passed off as "selfish, abusive video game that thinks in video game logic and wants someone to play her." These copies, including Risen herself, are much harder to pin. And no real explanation is given from this, either, since theoretically, all copies start from the same "template" and diverge from there.
** Cardia stutters a lot, is very tense and jittery most of the time, has a poor grip on reality, and tends to think of really bizarre solutions for situations when talking things out could work just fine. After her HeelFaceTurn, she's also by far the most overly apologetic of the bunch.
** Burrda has a ''strong'' aversion to verbal communication (unlike the ''Hair Idealization''[='=]s handling of [[WesternAnimation/PerfectHairForever Brenda]], she's never explicitely shown to be uncomfortable, just that she usually prefers displaying words on a screen, and if she ''must'' speak, she [[TerseTalker gets out as few words as possible]]), generally comes off as being depressed all the time,
** Dove has an obsession with trying to come off as important and imposing (so much that she looks through a thesaurus, gathers as many complicated words as she can, and using them in a SophisticatedAsHell manner), has a gait identical to [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Ed's,]] often travels in "random paths," chaotically fires people as stress relief, and has an obsession with debating people to prove them wrong.
** Risen/canonical [=.GIFfany=] is ''highly'' implied to be flat-out delusional. She gets far too invested in a fantasy acted out on with Soos and Melody dolls in chapter 9 until Stan walks in on her and breaks her out of it, [[spoiler:she takes a little too long to realize when Melody swapped herself out with the doll of her [=.GIFfany=] made]], and when she tells Professor Wendy that Soos cheated on her and murdered her in cold blood it's left ambiguous as to whether or not she was just bullshitting that for sympathy or if she ''actually remembers herself as the victim in that incident.'' In addition to all of this, she's a rather heavy MoodSwinger In the StylisticSuck ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage'', Ryan Christian (a TakeThat at Brian Griffin and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' as a whole) pauses himself a lot when trying to identify what's wrong with her, before eventually settling on calling her schizophrenic. However, as that's a guy who is obsessively hateful and hostile to the point of coming off as delusional himself, his credibility would be a negative number if quantified.

[[WMG:Mabel, in the [=RunGif=] verse, has Color Eye]]

The fact that she's able to tell the tile puzzle in chapter 7 alone should be a dead give away. For those unaware of how Color Eye works in GPF's stories, look at [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/6d/RGB_color_wheel_360.svg/2000px-RGB_color_wheel_360.svg.png this]] image. The color at the very bottom is blue. The slot to the immediate left of it is "ablue." The one immediately to the right is "tablue." Can you easily tell the difference without greatly adjusting your monitor? Mabel can. One dead giveaway sign of Color Eye, even in its weaker stages, is that every single color on that image would appear completely distinct to someone "infected" with it.
* Color Eye is also ''highly'' contageous, meaning that Dipper and Stan would definitely be affected -- possibly Soos, Wendy, and everyone Mabel even remotely talks to. It's that easy to spread. Despite this, the others show no ease at being able to tell the colors apart at all.
* Fan said that, in RG's verse, Mabel simply has color distinction ''like'' she has Color Eye from eating certain kinds of questionable candy like Smile Dip. She had "just the right mix" of certain dangerous products in the past, resulting in her having a weaker form of the effects of Color Eye, minus being able to pass it on to someone simply by breathing air towards them.

[[WMG:Mabel, in the [=RunGif=] verse, has Color Eye]]

The fact
!! For Gif's StylisticSuck ''Journals'' self:

* RadishCure:
** Undergoes a completely accidental instance. She admits
that she's able still a little "Soos-crazy" even after her complete HeelFaceTurn, and really wants him to tell herself, but he's usually... "seeing" either her other copies or Rumble or Melody instead. During certain events in the tile puzzle in chapter 7 alone should be debate, however, they have a dead give away. For those unaware of how Color Eye works in GPF's stories, look at [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/6d/RGB_color_wheel_360.svg/2000px-RGB_color_wheel_360.svg.png this]] image. The color massive falling out ([[FriendVersusLover both his family and lovers get into a borderline war with one-another and him at the very bottom is blue. The slot to the immediate left center of it is "ablue." The one immediately to the right is "tablue." Can you easily tell the difference without greatly adjusting your monitor? Mabel can. One dead giveaway sign of Color Eye, even in its weaker stages, is it,]] and when they "make up" it's a moment that every single color on counts as YourCheatingHeart more than anything), and she's the first one to actually come to his comfort. Cue Soos, in a fit of desperation, saying that image would appear completely distinct he wants to someone "infected" be downloaded into [=.GIFfany=]'s game and just live with it.
* Color Eye is also ''highly'' contageous, meaning
her forever (it helps that she was the ''first'' to call Melody out for shagging Stan behind everyone's back, especially during the hostile rivalry of Nazi-calling from both sides of the "debate," and most of her arguments were about how much the whole thing weighed on Soos). And cue [=.GIFfany=] freaking out over it, saying that she doesn't want this anymore, and working her ass off to try getting the harem to make back up.
** Instead of building an army (as in ''Gifocalypse''), the reason why there are more [=.GIFfany=] copies than the ones initially produced as the factory were due to a backfired version of this trope.
Dipper gets sick of all the naked [=.GIFfanys=] running around both the Mystery Shack and Soos's house (despite having their own entire city to hang out in), and convinces #9 to make a device that makes even more of them exponentially to see if he can make Soos, Melody, and Stan (the latter of whom is not involved in a relationship, he just thought it would definitely be affected -- possibly Soos, Wendy, and everyone a good idea to use them to rebrand the Mystery Shack as a sexy tourist trap) eventually get sick of all the overflowing copies. Especially considering [[{{Yandere}} what]] [[AmbiguousDisorder loose]] [[CloudCuckooland cannons]] the bulk of them are. Mabel warns him that this is a really, really bad idea, and Dipper even remotely talks to. It's that easy links to spread. Despite this, the others show no ease at being able to tell the colors apart at all.
* Fan said that, in RG's verse,
this very website's trope page only for Mabel simply has color distinction ''like'' she has Color Eye to point out the number of times that the trope had ''failed''. Even Stan thinks it won't work ("This is NOT 'make a kid smoke a lot so he doesn't smoke,' it's more of 'give a guy porn so he doesn't look at porn ist' makes sense'"). Sure enough, not only do Soos and Melody (along with Rumble, but he wasn't one of Dipper's concerns) end up loving it. The only negative thing that comes from eating certain kinds of questionable candy like Smile Dip. She had "just it is in ''[=SBIGlets=]'', when [[spoiler:Tad Strange absorbs the souls of all the new copies to become an Asriel-expy]].

!! Other Radishes:

* ...Fuck I can't think of any
right mix" of certain dangerous products in the past, resulting in her having a weaker form of the effects of Color Eye, minus being able to pass it on to someone simply by breathing air towards them.

She considers herself "twins" with Burnda.



* BerserkButton: "Game Over" reveals that she '''loathes''' being called "baby." "Precious" and "little" invoke similar reactions, but "baby" is the big one.
* {{Expy}}: Going with some of the ''Undertale'' parallels with Burnda having Metatton and Professor Wendy being slightly based on Undyne, Burrda is... actually, a weird combination of Alphys, Asgore, and to an even lesser extent, Papyrus.



* MoralityPet: She's the only professor '''every''' other copy is at least somewhat nice to. Even ''[[HairTriggerTemper Dove]]'' takes no offense to being called out by her, and actually feels proud of Burrda for talking back to [[TheDreaded her.]] Even Risen [=.GIFfany=], who normally thinks of the other professors as awful mockeries of herself, [[spoiler:refuses to let Burrda and Ford follow through with the "one of them has to die to prevent a war" plan of her's, outright saying "I have seen myself do a lot of things [...] But one thing I really do not want to see myself do is die."]] All of this being said, however, she's far from harmless, and far from completely innocent.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: When she starts saying more than a few words. It means something ''bad.'' Even rarer than that is when she raises her voice -- the only time she really does so is [[spoiler:immediately after '''swallowing''' the green key card (the one that ''leads back to Gravity Falls''), then says that if the group wants to get back home, they'll have to rip the card out of her guts.]]



* TerseTalker: When she ''does'' talk, it's like this. [[spoiler:She was a lot more... talkative back when he and Burnda were seeked out and bought by Gerald.]]

to:

* SuicideByCop: [[spoiler:Attempts to pull this off, believing that either her death or an "unnecessary" human death will prevent the Gifocalypse from becoming an all-out war. The only reason why she doesn't kill herself early is because she ''really'' does not want to die. She, in a way, tries to let Ford to decide whether she dies or he dies, except he wants neither. After realizing that the Pines family shouldn't be broken up or have anyone one of them get killed, she prepares to kill herself, and would have succeeded if not for [=.GIFfany=] intervening at the last second.]]

** Mabel in her entirety is a walking, personal berserk button to Dove. Trying to defend her will just make her outbursts even worse -- one of her beefs with Mabel is that, in Dove's opinion, people are way to quick to "bend over themselves" to defend her when she shouldn't be.

She's still the second to last and second most powerful main enemy.]]



* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: A strange inversion. She's rather ''pleasant'' when talking to Soos and drops her "complex speech" completely; presumably because she assumes Soos will be the first human she'll meet that doesn't try to kill her or think of her as a spooky video game monster.



* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: She intentionally tries to pull this off, mainly in front of Dipper and Mabel (when talking to Soos, this trait is completely absent) and some times her own co-professors, to try to sound more like an "evil genius."
* SophisticatedAsHell: ''Very'' eloquent when she wants to be -- it's revealed that she regularly reads a thesaurus -- and pretty foul-mouthed. However, these are both quirks she tries to throw on herself to make herself seem more menacing. She completely drops both of them when Soos is the only human around.



* TakeThat: She's both Fan's way of criticising Mabel through her own opinions, and... in a much larger way (though the only thing she actually has in common with ''Homestuck'' is her eloquent speech), a criticism of some aspects (particularly in [[SeasonalRot Act 6]]) of ''Homestuck''. While named after a character (in this case, Dave) like Professors Rose and Dian are, she is ''not'' one of the nicer copies and a massive pain in the ass to deal with. Uncoincidentally, the chapter focused on her is also where Ron Ejjert comes in, a specific, critical Take That at the "retcon" plot point.



* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Come in a large number of skin colors, some realistic, many not, practically following Fan's signature. Even out of the professors, there's more technicolor ones than not-technicolor ones. Examples are Bubbles (red), Cardia (orange, though her's might actually pass as a realistic skin color), Leona (yellow), Dian (green), Burnda and Burrda (both cyan), Sonia (blue), Wendy (purple), Rose (a '''very''' saturated, deep hot pink), and Dove (gray).

A fourth resembles a certain model glitch from the Wii U ''Super Smash Bros.'' installment. The fifth type seen in ''Gifocalypse'' is mostly original, but could be paralelled to [[VideoGame/YumeNikki Monoko's]] transformed state. At least in regards to all the arms.

* {{Flanderization}}: Their outfits, cross-story. In ''run:gifocalypse'', the majority of them have clothes that is, for the most part, ''actually covering'', even if it's made of irregular material. Sandy and Bubbles, the two most blatant exceptions, make sense -- Sandy is something of a nudist outright, and Bubbles enjoys annoying people to try getting in their head, so she wears only suds to try pissing people off. Come the cross-appearances in other works and their outfits are seasons 3+ Rainbow Crew-levels of impractical and just ''barely'' wearing ''anything''. Most of it can be hand-waved by being ''SBIG'', although their outfits in the epilogue of ''run:gifocalypse'' are the same as those in ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage''.

*** Shannon = Vijounne: This is the toughest out of all of them. Still, Shannon is partly associated with water even though water is Searah's element, given the amount of time she spends during the chase sequence trying to go through liquid giffinium.

* SingleTargetSexuality: While Fan claims the other copies are "open-minded," the professors are nearly literally hard-wired to being after their respective player. Except Rose, as she was technically "returned" first. [[spoiler:As well as Burnda, Burrda, and Dove, each of which got over their players completely. (The twins for buying both of them in a bad attempt to make a harem, which provokes both of them to be hostile towards one-another until they question why they're even bothering fighting over a polygamous guy like Gerald.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: [[spoiler:As revealed in the Memory Banks, she was ''incredibly'' hostile to [=.GIFfany=] when pressuring her to hold up her end of the "deal."
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Downplayed. It's implied here and there for most of the story, mainly kicking up around Arc 3. Especially Kathody's reports on what Rose had done in beteen Domains 10 and 11 when she thought the gang killed Professor Wendy. [[spoiler:It's eventually revealed that, despite her claims, she cares more about the well-being of her sisters than the lives of the main group -- including 12-year old Dipper and Mabel. Even when they're outnumbered by the professors. Word of God is that she was based on an apparent occurance where a Vocal Minority of ''Undertale'' fans known to insult people for not going on a full Pacifist run. In essense, caring more about the "fictional characters" (er, the [=AIs=]) than the human beings "playing the game."]] She gets over it.



The professor of water. Her subject/general field is athletics. Domain 3, her place, is located in the "center" of the Bermuda Triangle, and deep under water at that.

* SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers: To the point where she excludes anyone from even ''seeing'' her domain if they are not "idealistic enough."



* StonersAreFunny: Eventually confirmed in "State of Emergency" to be a bit of a pothead. Well, not "pot" so much as "her specialized 'herbal tea.'"



* MakeMeWannaShout: The professor of sound. She can possess and manipulate sound waves, to the point where she can turn a simple clap into a disrupting ring that can stun anyone around her.



* BewareTheSillyOnes: Yes, she's obsessed with ''King of the Hill'', to the point where she quotes it and cites the exact episode by season and number for most of her viewpoints.

to:

* BewareTheSillyOnes: Yes, she's obsessed with ''King of the Hill'', to the point where she quotes it and cites the exact episode by season and number for most of her viewpoints. But she's also not the one to mess around -- she can possess ''an entire tornado'', and in a world that completely averts DoNotTouchTheFunnelCloud at that. [[spoiler:As you could imagine, she manages to trap the hero group within ''seconds flat''. Her own belief that she was just canon fodder was the only thing keeping her from winning the whole Gifocalypse.]]



* {{Expy}}: To [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} Undyne,]] although if you consider Burnda and Burrda like the "Mettaton" and "Alphys" of the group, Wendy is ''really'' not a flattering expy. Bordering on TakeThat levels, in fact.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Not as bad as Dove, but it's implied that she's not very well-liked by the other professors (her students, on the other hand, ''love'' her). Even Rose, who normally loves the others, felt the need to restate and emphasize that she does ''not'' want the protagonists to kill any copy when they are about to face off against her.



* FanDisservice: Her dress is see-through and

to:

* FanDisservice: Her dress is see-through (aside from the breasts) and clearly revealers her panties underneath. Then she ends up not only trying to genuinely ''kill'' the hero group, but also possesses her own reflection and uses it to boost her power, quickly going into loop after loop of reflection-possessing until she turns into... well... a horrific-looking light construct.



* KnightOfCerebus: An unusual case in that she herself is not a very cold-blooded or overly "serious" character herself. However, her domain and [[spoiler:the glitchy-body horror around it]], while still ultimately MonsterOfTheWeek-ish by this fic's standards, sets the tone for the last leg of the story, which is generally darker in nature or deals with more serious themes. After her, Burnda is the last real "lighthearted domain romp" part of the fic (though helping a bit is that the two parts of the Parícutin volcano are the last two "traditional" domains as well), and even then her chapter ends with [[spoiler:Burrda trying to force Ford into a "I die or you die, all so that [=.GIFfany=] doesn't resort to mass-destruction" fight.]]

* BigBrotherInstinct: Or, Big Sister Instinct. She gets ''incredibly'' pissed off when Rumble challenges Burrda to a fight, even when all parties involved know that Burrda could just as easily have fried him and could fight for herself. This is ultimately what causes both Burnda to drop the act of her being a "blind [=.GIFfany=]"-supporter" and Burrda to say her first words heard in-fic. "Burnda. I can fight for myself."



* RealityWarper: [[spoiler:As Blenda, as the "weirdness" within them is somehow "multiplied" to the point where they can bend reality in a room's worth of range. One of Blenda's more ''basic'' abilities is to turn all the doors of the room into a portal network, eliminating a way of getting out until they de-fuse or drop the portals.]]




to:

* TokenGoodTeammate: Another Risen [=.GIFfany=]-opposer, and one of the most aggressive about it to boot. [[spoiler:She qualifies as this moreso than even the likes of Rose, Dian, or Shannon -- Burnda had declared [=.GIFfany=] not that much worth listening to ''well before the Gifocalypse''. In fact, when the professors all meet at the factory, Burnda and Burrda are the only ones who never attack [=.GIFfany=] for "not repaying her debt." Their domains are ''not'' necessarly to impress any player, and unlike Dove, they're not blowing shit up for the fun of it.]]



* RealityWarper: See Burnda's entry.



* DumbMuscle: Downplayed. She's not visibly muscular -- few of the copies are, and they're all minor copies -- and she's not an outright idiot, but she is considered the strongest ''and'' dumbest of the professors. [[spoiler:The "strong," FYI, is not factoring the rift into [=.GIFfany=]'s skillset, which is why she remains at the top of the escalating-power chain (that the story otherwise avoids).]] She has a tough, durable body "of steel" (but is actually stronger), yet at the same time she's prone to making a large number of irrational decisions and practically ''looks'' for things to get pissed off about. Also, she can't recognize Pacifica despite keeping a Gifocalypse-era newspaper where [[WorstNewsJudgmentEver the front-page top article is an overly-analytical, poorly-written essay that tries to get into the psychology of her eating a sandwich.]]

* RememberTheNewGuy: He's an original character, which of course means that he did not appear as a town resident at all. This is lampshaded as most of the main cast is confused when he makes his appearance.
* TakeThat: Towards Act 6 in ''Homestuck'' in general, and the retcon device specifically.

* KingMook: To their respective student-followers, each of them are effectively the "boss variant" of the traits and things associated with their student groups. Justified in that they "teach" their students how to use their powers in different ways, and thus said students deliberately take after them. This is more obvious in their appearances on the ''SBIG'' series, which (ironically despite its StylisticSuck nature) goes somewhat more into depth with the small societies they created.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: While talked about a lot, and at least once per chapter at that, her personality isn't ''really'' that established until her actual appearance.
