Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'' [[spoiler: The Dittomancy Doubel of]] King Slately, upon seeing Parson, says "There is the Lord of Hampsters himself. Large and terrible. Yet I do not fear him." While Parson had not tormented Slately himself, he did hold Parson largely, if not entirely, responsible for croaking two of his sons, [[spoiler: The real King Slately]], a massive number of Jetstone units, and driving Uniroyal (whose queen was a close friend of Slately) to extinction. His fearsome reputation as a Warlord amongst other leaders of Erfworld was largely written in the blood of Jetstone and Uniroyal soldiers, despite not actually commanding most of those battles.
