** Plus, when the team screw up a mission, its (usually) because something goes wrong along the way. Wildfire, by contrast, was the entire reason that cult leader got to go free and [[spoiler:one of the Inquisition's most important research facilities ends up in a black hole]] because she couldn't control herself.

herself. Say what you will about the team's incompetence, but at least they never [[spoiler:single handedly destroyed decades of research because they acted rashly]].

** Eastwood hates her, because he's a misogynist and she rejects his sexual advances, and so has become worthless in his eyes. Lothar hates her, because she's probably the only character more crazy than he is, and Lothar doesn't look as edgy in comparison. In terms of Virus, I have absolutely no idea.

* Why did the team hate her so much? I mean yeah, she's clearly incompetent and tends to cause collateral damage, but the main cast isn't much better in those departments. That kinda stuff was par for the course ''long'' before she showed up.

* IT'S [[Characters/Warhammer40000Imperium THE IMPERIUM OF MAN]]! Seriously, this whole concept just rubs me the wrong way. I realize FurriesAreEasierToDraw, but still. GAH.
** No it's not. The entire premise is taking ''SonicTheHedgehog'''s recent DarkerAndEdgier storylines and cranking it to the max. The only reason ''{{Bokurano}}'' wasn't used was because the authors probably never heard of it and if they did it was probably too obscure.
*** No, what it was was taking an OldShame of some of the team, which was a blend of 40K and Sonic, then excising some of the GrimDark bits to make it into a more comedic thing.
** Besides, they've pointed out both in-strip and by WordOfGod that it's not the actual [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} 40K]] universe. Let's see... Nurgle has been replaced by Fernex, there are four good-guy gods rather than just the Emperor, and they've explicitly stated that there won't be any hamster Chapter Masters (except in one caption-contest strip, anyway).
** It hasn't, never was, and never will be 40k with [[FurryFandom Furries]]. It's the bastard lovechild of two concepts that should never meet. There's a reason why it no longer exists as anything more than an extended joke between the creators any more.

** As someone mentioned, ''actual'' parody isn't illegal, and while I haven't read the whole series, as far as I can tell, there are no explicit references to either universe, merely constant use of the words "heresy" and "daemon," which [[SarcasmMode as far as I know,]] are not copyrighted terms, and the fact that it uses a similar art style to that of Sonic. And if using a similar art style to an existing franchise is enough to get you sued, [[TakeThat then every anime studio ever is in big trouble.]]

* Here's a meta example, why is almost every headscratcher presented on this page being swarm with someone claiming monopoly over what is what in the series (as if they were actually a writer or owner of the series themselves), passing off like they know everything, and using the WordOfGod trope as a quick and easy shut-down to any discussion, without any way of telling if they're true to their word or not? What's even more interesting is that, whoever it is, once they've pulled the WordOfGod card, they just treat it as a 'no u wrong' scenario' and that's it. Why don't they expand on what the truth is, or offer any vague insight back as to the answer to the headscratcher that was originally pondered? That's probably the biggest headscratcher on this page.
