** The Queen song is "The Ring (Hypnotic Seduction of Dale)" from [[Film/FlashGordon the Flash Gordon soundtrack]], specifically the first second or two, which is actually a SFX sample from the movie that {{Queen}} used at the start of the track. It happens exactly when the above troper said it does. As for the Death From Above 1979 track, it's probably a difficult-to-legally-find b-side, but can be found online through less than legitimate sources.

** In book 4 he gets called out on 3 times: When Lisa invites him to smoke, when Ramona invites him a drink and when Roxy starts fighting him. On all those times they ask him wether those actions are "A higher moral ground things, or are you just a pussy?" This trooper thinks its meant be the former, and show how Scott likes to feel more mature for those actions, instead of putting more work into his issues, so it makes sense he keeps the facade when fighting Roxy, even is not smart to do so.

**Like obssesing about his drinks' stats on the Free Comic Day Issue, or like that time Wallace overwrote his Final Fantasy save file and he broke down crying I thought this was meant to be one of Scotts weird compulsions. Maybe he thought he was drunk? Guess I also need someone elses opinion.

[[folder:Stephen throwing up]]

* In Volume 3, near the climax, Scott finds Stephen Stills throwing up in one of the bathroom stalls. And Scott is just so offended by that. It's well known that Scott is a big manchild, but why would he find that so despicable of Stephen? I don't quite follow. Nearest I can tell, Scott has so much faith in Sex Bob-omb (or at least himself) that acknowledging the possibility of failure is an insult to his abilities? If that answers it, I guess that's that. I just want to hear someone else's take on it.

** Wait a second, "Ramona had never had a person who sincerely cared for her" is absolute bullshit. Barring Gideon her exes turned to evil largely because ''she'' treated ''them'' badly, cheated on them, and never really cared for ''their'' feelings.

* Another question is that is Stephen bisexual or was he just in the closet?


Added DiffLines:

** Some have actually considered Gideon's handsigns to summon the Pixel Katana to be a reference to putting ''cheat codes.'' Gideon pretty much buffed himself to a ridiculously high amount (the Katana giving four attributes '''x7'''.)

*** It also fell into the mess left when Ramona's bag exploded. No one wanted to dig through the garbage to collect the money.

** Perhaps this is the purpose of the SavePoint we saw once; people can't die in the ''ScottPilgrim'' World, but they get a game over and restart far away from where they lost. Alternatively, they don't matter because they're just [=NPCs=], and Scott's the only one who is real. And he's not afraid of death because he can respawn, too. Or maybe the fights to the death are perfectly legal in this 'verse, because the League of Evil Ex-Boyfriends is a registered union.

* Why hasn't anyone arrested Scott for running around murdering people? Why is nobody freaked out that the local guy is killing the ex-boyfriends of his girlfriend and are treating it like some sort of minor inconvenience? It's NightmareFuel if you think about it. Furthermore, since the world is based partially on videogames and RiverCityRansom, why doesn't anyone ever respawn or have extra lives or do they respawn offscreen and just decide to avoid Scott and Ramona from now on?

** RiverCityRansom, which provided most of the Scott Pilgrim world's mechanics, didn't actually ''have'' a GameOver screen. If you died, you respawned at the last mall you visited, but with half your money gone. The enemies did the same thing, though. Whenever you left their screen and came back, they'd be back again.

** Simple: the Scott Pilgrim world acts like a video game, right? Well, it must be a video game where it doesn't matter if you murder people. Problem solved.
