* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Played for laughs. Paula is struck with a lifelong nicotine addiction due to eating raw trout. Not to mention that, apparently, dumping orange sharpies into sweet tea causes the drinker to become orange and brain-damaged.



* CreatorBacklash: One of the original creators has stated he doesn't even like the show that much, among other things.
* CrossDressingVoices: The main cast of the series is all-male, so this trope was pretty much inevitable.



* FanNickname: Due to its nature of being based off of ''Videogame/EarthBound'', fans and the creators alike have used mash-ups of the actors' usernames and the characters to differentiate. Nessfis, [=PaulaCaboose=], [=DJeffKaton=] and Poowahi, for example. This practice has spread to characters original to [=FaB=], like Paula's Old Father, [=DadLeader=], as well. The creators have already gotten a leg-up on this trend for Tree From My Youth, if Lukaton, [=DusterCab=], and Stephatora have anything to say about it....



* RealLifeRelative: Jeff's crush on the Magic Cake Lady makes more sense when you realize that the voice actors were dating (at the time) in real life.
** Ditto on White Sesame Seed and Ness. They've since gotten married.



* TalkingToHimself: A given, seeing that there are five main voice actors; a notable one would be Jeff Andonuts (played by Jami Carignan) threatening to shoot the Narrator (also played by Jami Carignan) if he did not play the Beatles.



* ThrowItIn: ''Loids Are Not Christmas'' is made of this trope.



* YouFailBiologyForever: Played for laughs. Paula is struck with a lifelong nicotine addiction due to eating raw trout.
** Not to mention that, apparently, dumping orange sharpies into sweet tea causes the drinker to become retarded and orange.

''Fobbies Are Borange'' is an AffectionateParody fan-retelling of ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', in the form of an internet radio play. It follows the rather stupid Ness on his journey much the same as its parent work, though in a much different matter. It is written by and stars Stephen Georg (xfisjmg1), Jane Tovar (matilda_caboose, credited at the time as Martin Tovar), Jami Carignan (Katon, then credited as Benjamin Carignan), Muhammad A-R (Lewahi), and Chaz Estell ([=BlackLeader=]). ''Fobbies are Borange'' ran for 42 official episodes, ''Fobbies are Borange: The Movie'', ''Ask a Fooby'' 1 and 2, and four recap episodes, ending on September 5th, 2008. Fobbies are Borange has several spinoffs, including ''Loids are not Christmas'', ''Paulas are Bamazing'', and ''Ninten Speaks''. The official sequel to [=FaB=], titled ''TreeFromMyYouth'', aired its first non-joke episode on February 20th, 2009. ''TreeFromMyYouth'' retells VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}.

Prince Poo (Lewahi) has big dreams and even bigger vocal chords. Poo, like Ness, is overall a childish character who shows signs of maturity every so often, only in this case it might be more due to the fact that he's from a foreign country than he's actually that spacey. Overall Poo tries to be friends with everyone (much to the dismay of Paula Polestar), and is always attempting to keep the attitude of the group a positive one.

Paula Polestar (Martin Tovar) is angry. No one's entirely sure WHY, but she is. Since then she's gone on to become one of the most developed of the Chosen Four; her rather unconventional behavior and obvious spite for her fellow travelers being something fans either love or hate. She's dour, bitter, sarcastic, domineering, and prone to anger and violence.

Jeff Andonuts (Benjamin Carignan) is the third member of the Chosen Four. Jeff's personality is hard to describe, because as far as anyone can tell, he doesn't have one. The only time he shows any spark of emotion is when he's eyeing women with cake or someone is trying to pilfer his beloved ''Videogame/EarthBound Player's Guide''.

Prince Poo has big dreams and even bigger vocal chords. Poo, like Ness, is overall a childish character who shows signs of maturity every so often, only in this case it might be more due to the fact that he's from a foreign country than he's actually that spacey. Overall Poo tries to be friends with everyone (much to the dismay of Paula Polestar), and is always attempting to keep the attitude of the group a positive one.

The Narrator (Benjamin Carignan) is the narrator of Fobbies are Borange. He introduces most of the episodes and then wraps them up once it's over. His only known enemy is The British Narrator.

Ness (Stephen Georg) is the token main character of the Chosen Four. Ness is the supposed leader of the group, but it's pretty obvious that he's on his own journey and his friends are just along for the ride. Ness has ADD, causing him to be very erratic and oftentimes childish, but sadly, he's probably the most stable person in the group.
