ATTENTION, THIS IS ACTUALLY IMPORTANT: I need help finding a trope where a character whose not well adjusted socially has a strange way of showing or making an apology. The titles I could think of would be "funny way of showing it" or "in his own way", but when I search those titles, neither of them bring up anything useful. Does anyone know if there's a trope to help me? Or do I need to use the Launchpad? And furthermore, is there a specific page on this website where one can request help finding a trope? Because if not, there should be. I'm only using this page because I can't find a page like that, and I figure this page will reach the most people.

!Hey, why is the title "WikiSandbox" instead of Wiki Sandbox? Did someone change it?
!!Even when you WikiWord Wiki Sandbox, it turns into WikiSandbox.
!!!(this is way funnier if you look at the source text)

^ For a period of time the title was actually changed to "Ash and Cinders."

Okay, I've tried replacing this Gurren Lagann video with Masterclass trailer ''TWICE'', and both times the Sandbox's editing mode lagged so much that Google Chrome just kept saying the page was unresponsive. Clearly, ''Something'' is trying to prevent me from showing the residents of Sandboxia the absolute ''glory'' that is the ''VideoGame/MightyNo9'' Masterclass trailer. Well, fuck you, Something. Whatever that Something is.

Incoming Real Life Example that have just been deleted, and will be posted so I can copy and paste for prosperity and eternal victory (to myself at least)
[[folder:Real Life]]
* Creator/WernerHerzog is a famous real life example. A popular story holds that the equally neurotic actor KlausKinski threatened to walk off the set of ''Film/AguirreTheWrathOfGod'', so Herzog pulled out a gun and forced him to finish the scene at gunpoint. Herzog says that story's apocryphal -- really, he didn't have a gun on him, he just swore that he would murder Kinski and then kill himself if he dropped out of the movie. Kinski, on the other hand, maintained the gun story was true (and had a few other crazy Herzog stories besides; the two were very close friends).
* Creator/StanleyKubrick, who was well known for his repeated takes, had a background in photography. Thus, he focused entirely on the visual aspect of film, and the actors were just props. His reputation ranged from "gifted perfectionist" to this trope to "{{Jerkass}}" depending on who you asked and when you asked.
** For example, during the shooting of ''Film/TheShining'', he verbally abused Shelley Duvall and made her do the same scene over and over in order to get her performance right (some say over 100 takes, [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081505/trivia?tab=tr&item=tr0792955 but it's been denied]]). On the same movie, Scatman Crothers was once reduced to tears as Kubrick shot over 50 takes of a single scene (namely, the one [[spoiler:in which Halloran is axed in the chest by Jack Torrance]]); he collapsed to his knees and shouted "What do you WANT?"[[note]] Both cases may count as EnforcedMethodActing; Kubrick was (in)famous for putting actors under heavy real-life tension if he thought they are not able to show appropriate emotions well enough. Needless to say, few actors met this criterium, so Kubrick terrorized them until the required emotion came organically. Although in the Shelley Duvall case, repeated Steadicam (then a new technology) failure may have also contributed to the need for repeated takes.[[/note]]
* Creator/FritzLang. His retakes often included verbal abuse, beatings, and occasionally [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpXrIaEmOks being set on fire.]]
** With maybe the exception of the beatings, the same can be said of Creator/OttoPreminger.
** The actor playing Freder in ''Film/{{Metropolis}}'' had to go down on his knees so often (the filming of the scene took two days!) that he could barely stand afterwards.
** Notoriously, during the making of ''Film/SecretBeyondTheDoor'', Lang made Creator/MichaelRedgrave film an intimate scene with Joan Bennett six times, with each shot ending with Bennett pushing him out of a hammock and Redgrave bumping his head on the ground. It was a [[DudeNotFunny cruel joke]] given that Redgrave was [[{{Gayngst}} highly insecure]] about his [[BiTheWay bisexuality]]. Bennett's daughter recalled that Redgrave "was a mess" during the filming.
* We also have Lang's contemporary Creator/CecilBDeMille, who was well known for insisting things be as authentic as possible. This included routinely placing actors in very real physical danger, and verbally assaulting those who refused. When told that miniatures would not work for the now-legendary "parting of the Red Sea" scene from ''Film/TheTenCommandments'' and that the only way to achieve the right effect was to dig out an entire parking lot[[note]]Which eventually became ''two'' parking lots ''and'' a section of a street[[/note]] and fill it with water, [=DeMille=] immediately responded with two words: "Start digging." There's a reason why ''Film/BlazingSaddles'' uses him as a reference in slaughter...
* Creator/JamesCameron. Some of his crew took to wearing [[FunTShirt T-shirts]] that read "You Can't Scare Me. I work for James Cameron." Some of his friends refer to his bad temper as his EvilTwin "[[SdrawkcabName Noremac Mij]]". Several actors on ''Film/TheAbyss'' had horror stories; Ed Harris and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio both refused to work with him again after that [[note]]Mastrantonio because Cameron insisted on shooting retakes of a painful CPR scene until the crew "ran out of film stock" (supposedly just as he was becoming satisfied), and Harris because Cameron literally almost ''drowned him''[[/note]], and Harris won't even talk about his experience. During the filming of ''Film/TrueLies'', he apparently refused to allow any of the crew to take bathroom breaks until a shot was [[IncrediblyLamePun in the can]]. During the filming of ''{{Film/Titanic 1997}}'', a crew member put PCP in the wrap party soup as revenge (this didn't work out so well, as dozens of crew members were hospitalized as a result). That said, plenty of actors and crew work with him time and again, so he can't be that bad ''all'' the time... either that or [[MoneyDearBoy the pay]] (or the career boost that starring in a James Cameron movie will offer) is just too good to pass up, no matter how much of a [=Jerkass=] he may be.
** It's possible to cut him a little slack for ''Film/TheAbyss'', but not much, because he was going through a very messy divorce at the time. He's never managed to top that that one, possibly because he's never almost killed any of his other actors, which made Ed Harris so furious that he actually punched Cameron afterwards. Author Creator/OrsonScottCard, who worked with him on the film's novelization, described the experience as "hell on wheels."
** On the set of ''Film/{{Avatar}}'', Cameron kept a nail gun handy to make an example of cell phones that went off on set. According to the actors of that film, though, he's mellowed over the past decade.
* Creator/AlfredHitchcock had such a reputation for this that he was often quoted as having said "Actors are cattle". This led to a later incident on the set of ''Mr. and Ms. Smith'' in which Carole Lombard actually brought heifers onto the set with name tags of the lead actors. Hitchcock responded that he had been misquoted: "I said 'Actors [[NoExceptYes should be treated]] like cattle.'" Some of his frequent collaborators have said that he was never really happy when actually directing a movie, because he had already done the fun part, i.e. completing the film in his head during pre-production. To elaborate:
** While shooting ''Film/TheBirds'', Hitchcock had the birds fed whiskey to make them drunk and aggressive, and for a particular scene had birds repeatedly thrown directly at lead actress Tippi Hedren while he yelled abuse at her in order to get the desired reaction. She was so traumatized by the experience that she had to be hospitalized for a week.
* The infamous voice director Wally Burr, known for directing a number of cartoons in the '70s and '80s. He would frequently have actors redo their lines several times over until they nailed it perfectly, and is cited by some as the reason for the 8-hour recording maximum being cut down to four hours. Veteran voice actor Creator/MichaelBell (whom Burr worked with often) has mentioned that after a session with Burr, the actors' voices would be sore for hours and maybe even a day, and joked that Burr's work with Creator/OrsonWelles on ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'' was the cause of his death a month later. However, Burr himself stated that, despite this hard reputation, he "got the job done successfully and received no complaints about the quality of the voice acting".
* One particularly bad example from the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 30's period of animation]] was Disney veteran Burt Gillett. According to John Canemaker's book "Felix: The Twisted Tale of the World's Most Famous Cat", Gillett was a manic-depressive egotist with a perfectionist mentality; he was known to cause trouble at Creator/VanBeurenStudios for attempting to run the place like he did at Disney's, shifting around or firing personnel, installing expensive things like forcing the animators to do pencil tests, which drove up the budgets like crazy. Veteran animator ShamusCulhane claimed that he seemed to suffer from bipolar disorder, and Burt even ''attacked him with a spindle, after Shamus called him out for lying to Amadee Van Beuren'' one day. Creator/OttoMessmer, who recommended Burt directing the short lived WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat cartoons for the studio, later openly regretted choosing him.
* Creator/FrizFreleng, one of the main directors on the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts at Creator/WarnerBros, was apparently this. He often made his animators redo scenes over and over again. One of the animators, Manny Perez (who worked for him for over a decade) later said in an interview that he grew to hate the man. Not surprising, since he's known for his bad temper (and was even the inspiration for Yosemite Sam).
* Prima donna directors wound up being the undoing of the UsefulNotes/NewHollywood era. After their early works got showered with heaps of praise, they were given ProtectionFromEditors and started to [[SmallNameBigEgo let their egos get the better of them]]. It culminated in disasters like ''Film/HeavensGate'' and ''One From the Heart'', expensive box office bombs that cost their studios millions and [[CreatorKiller bankrupted United Artists]] (in the case of the former) and [[Creator/FrancisFordCoppola its director]] (for the latter).
* Dennis Hopper was this on ''Film/EasyRider'' despite being his first movie as a director. He refused to cut anything from his ''220 minute long version'', so the producers had to dupe Hopper into travelling so the film could be edited to a decent length in his absence. Bad behavior added to the failure of his following production, ''The Last Movie'', caused him to mostly act in the following years.
* Creator/MichaelBay is infamous for a very aggressive film shoot, demanding a lot more from his cast and crew than most directors and sometimes throwing tantrums when anyone doesn't match up to what he wants. This has earned him some enemies; BruceWillis, Creator/ScarlettJohansson and Kate Beckinsale all said they would never work with him again. On the other hand, Creator/JohnMalkovich said that he was warned to not work with him, but he enjoyed the shoot for ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'', commenting that Bay felt like an enthusiastic child. Other cast and crew members have said that Bay is like a General on the front lines, hard to deal with but he gets the job done.
* Troy Duffy, writer and director of ''Film/TheBoondockSaints''. The documentary ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0shntGkUD0 Overnight]]'' details his [[SmallNameBigEgo inflation of ego]] during the making of the film. He kinda went off the rails. While he has tried to [[http://www.slashfilm.com/2009/10/28/the-filmcast-interview-troy-duffy-director-of-the-boondock-saints-2-all-saints-day/ apologize for his past behavior]], if you watch the doc you'll get a better idea of why [[Film/TheBoondockSaintsIIAllSaintsDay the sequel]] spent ''ten years'' in DevelopmentHell.
* Creator/DavidORussell has quite the reputation for being batshit insane. During the shooting of ''Film/ThreeKings'', he physically abused his cast and crew to the point where he kicked a young extra to the ground while yelling at him (when Creator/GeorgeClooney told him to cut it out and he refused, [[TemptingFate calling Clooney a pussy and daring him to throw a punch,]] Clooney proceeded to kick his ass). After hearing that Jude Law was thinking of leaving ''IHeartHuckabees'' to work on ''Film/ThePrestige'', he proceeded to track down Creator/ChristopherNolan to a party and headlocked him until Law returned. His ''IHeartHuckabees''-related shenanigans didn't end there. A NYT article on the set reported that he "rolls on the ground, dances, does push-ups," strips down to his boxers and is seen groping and "rubbing his body up against the women and men on the set," finally culminating in his infamous on-set breakdown. However, it seems that he mellowed with age; no such incidents were reported during the production of ''Film/TheFighter'', ''Film/SilverLiningsPlaybook'' or ''Film/AmericanHustle'' and Clooney said he made up with him.
** Leaked clips like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuihIXf_X_U this one]] show what working with him can be like.
** He is [[http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/movies/2012/11/silver_linings_playbook_reviewed.html supposedly known as]] "David O. Asshole" by crew who've worked with him.
* Animator Creator/RichardWilliams is a legendary perfectionist, completely obsessed with perfectly fluid and smooth hand-drawn animation, nearly all of which is shot on ones (as opposed to the standard 2s or 3s). Despite his reputation as an excellently draftsman and artist and the superb quality of his visuals, he's also repeatedly missed deadlines and overshot his budget on certain projects just because he wants them to be ''that'' perfect. This is arguably the main reason ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' never saw completion despite his working on it for nearly three decades. Investors came and went due to William's unreliability, and he regularly hired and fired people at will, sometimes for something as innocuous as their animation being "too vulgar." When ''Thief'' finally got funding from Warner Brothers, he got worse than ever, demanded elaborate scenes be reanimated from scratch because minor objects were the wrong color and forcing his crew work nearly impossible hours (he refused to give time off for an animator to visit his sick wife in the hospital, and another animator ended up quitting/being fired after Williams likewise refused him time off to spend with his wife and newborn baby). As usual, he missed the deadline and went over budget, resulting in the film being hastily completed without his involvement.
** His head was apparently as big as all outdoors on ''WesternAnimation/RaggedyAnnAndAndyAMusicalAdventure'', his first feature. In addition to his standard of numerous retakes, he demanded two simultaneous animation units on either US coast. This, plus, having to fly him back and fourth each week to supervise, caused the once-modest budget to skyrocket.
* According to rumors, Creator/KunihikoIkuhara from ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', ''Anime/SailorMoon'' and ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum'' fame.
* Creator/ErichVonStroheim was possibly the ur-example of this trope. He was known for being demanding of his actors, and just not caring about budgets (his preferred cut of the film ''Greed'' -- a film that cost an (in 1924) astronomical $500,000 -- clocked in at ''ten hours''). These penchants forced him out of directing by 1929, after massive fights over the Gloria Swanson vehicle ''Queen Kelly'' over the budget and Stroheim's wanting to include "indecent" material into the film, a decision vetoed by both Swanson and producer Joseph P. Kennedy. After that, no studio with an ounce of sanity let him anywhere near that side of a camera ever again. He did, however, find a second career as an actor, including a famed role as the chauffeur in ''Film/SunsetBoulevard''.
* Michael Curtiz also was known for this, to the point of Errol Flynn once getting so angry on set that he climbed up the gantry that Curtiz was abusing the actors from and dangled him over the side! On an early film, a filming of the Biblical story of Noah's Ark, Curtiz neglected to tell the extras that the flood would not be shot with models... instead he arranged for many many gallons of water to deluge the set. Three extras drowned, and several others were injured. Hal Mohr, the cinematographer on the film (who suggested using models to prevent this exact situation from happening) later said: "The murderous bastard never should have permitted a thing like that to happen." This, apparently, was one in a string of incidents that prompted the formation of the Screen Actors' Guild.
* Claudio Fragrasso, the man whom we can thank for directing ''{{Film/Troll 2}}''. When he started filming in America, he insisted on bringing along his Italian production crew, of which only the costume designer knew how to speak fluent English. Despite this, Claudio insisted on writing the script for the movie with his [[BlindIdiotTranslation limited grasp of the English language]]. He also gave his verbal directions in this same pidgin-English. The actors, who were already of limited acting experience having been largely gathered from local towns in a casting call (including one ''mental patient'' on a day trip) were understandably confused. Any attempt to correct this caused the director to angrily tell them to deliver their lines verbatim, claiming that he "knew what Americans said better than they did". This perfect storm of incompetence is the primary source for all of that now infamously hammy dialogue. To this day, Claudio insists that the movie was a cinematic masterpiece and has called the actors "liars" and "dogs" for what they have said about it. During one Q&A session in America, a fan asked "Why aren't there any Trolls in the movie?" Claudio responded by screaming "You understand nothing!"
* William Friedkin has a reputation for this, mainly due to two incidents stemming from ''Film/TheExorcist''. In one, he told Ellen Burstyn the pull on the wires that would yank her off the bed was much lighter than it actually was; she claimed to have received permanent back injury as a result of the scene where Reagan slaps her mother about. Then there was the fact that Rev. William O'Malley (an actual Jesuit priest, playing Father Dyer) wasn't quite nailing the emotional tone of the Last Rites at the end of the movie... so Friedkin, without warning, ''slapped him in the face'' and called for another take, using O'Malley's genuine distress to get the right tone. And composer Lalo Schifrin had tapes of his soundtrack ''thrown out of a window'' by Friedkin, who later used mostly existing music. Like James Cameron, Friedkin is said to have mellowed out in later years, and has also made good with many of the cast and crew of ''The Exorcist''.
* The orchestral conductor Serge Koussevitzky. In the words of a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra:
-->"Koussevitzky was about the best-hated conductor we ever had to play under, and there were times when I would have gladly forfeited my career for the pleasure of spitting in his face. But there was something about him which stopped you -- something which made you realise in time that you were proud to belong to such an orchestra as this, although, and even because, it entailed having to play under him."
* Creator/CharlieChaplin was a notorious perfectionist as a director, although, since he starred in his own films, it could fairly be said that he didn't push anyone harder than he pushed himself (for example, one scene in ''Film/TheCircus'', in which Chaplin's character walks a tightrope, took ''600 takes'' before Chaplin was satisfied).
* According to Creator/RogerEbert, the French director Creator/RobertBresson despised actors for attempting to insert their own interpretation of their characters into their performances, which might conflict his interpretation. His solution was to make them do as many takes of a given scene as was required to break their spirits and drain them of the will to do anything except precisely what he told them to do. Then he started hiring non-professional actors, who weren't as motivated as professional actors to impose their own interpretations on the script. Having said that, some actors loved working with him; Anne Wiazemsky, who played the horribly abused main girl in ''Au hazard Balthazar'', went on to work with Creator/JeanLucGodard, among others.
* Similarly, Creator/DavidFincher isn't too fond of improvisations, and the errant actor who tries to overact will be punished. "I hate earnestness in performance. Usually by Take 17 the earnestness is gone." Many actors who have worked with him, however, are okay with his unorthodox style of directing. One of the few exceptions is Jake Gyllenhaal from ''Zodiac'', who expressed admiration for Fincher's precision and patience while also conveying frustration at the lack of collaboration that one feels when submitting to him.
* Creator/JerryLewis. This may have been a contributing factor to his split with DeanMartin. He was a perfectionist and notoriously difficult to work with. In many of his films, he had complete control over the writing, directing, and acting and served as the producer.
* Part of why ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate'' was such a MovieMakingMess was the fact that Hal Warren [[http://www.jophan.org/mimosa/m18/brandt.htm was full of himself despite a lack of knowledge on filmmaking]].
* Paul Jackson, director of ''Series/TheYoungOnes'' and executive producer of ''Series/RedDwarf''. Notorious for his short temper -- to the point where cast and crew were always especially wary around him even in later years when he wasn't screaming at people so often, purely because of his reputation.
* According to ''Literature/TheDisasterArtist'', Tommy Wiseau, director, writer, producer, ''and'' star of the infamous SoBadItsGood movie ''Film/TheRoom''.
* The Russian writer Alexander Shakhovskoy (1777-1846) was really demanding about his plays being put on stage. They say that once, during the preparations to a play where the action occurred at evening, he ran everywhere, complained that everyone does it wrong... in the end, he turned toward the lamp on the table and said "[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Mom, you're not shining where you should]]".
* Another infamous animator example is Creator/JohnKricfalusi, creator of ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''. Similar to Richard Williams, few deny the quality of his work (even if it isn't their cup of tea), but his refusal to cooperate with executives over animation quality and content has made him extremely frustrating to work with, as he basically expected ProtectionFromEditors up-front. He demanded that animators draw to his ''exact'' specifications, namely never [[OffModel drawing the character the same way more than once]], and personally tore up several artists' works in front of them to make a point. The rumors that he tried to hit on several female employees certainly didn't help, and he was eventually fired from his own hit show. His reputation has yet to recover, forcing him to stick with small indie projects and commercials to avoid more drama.
** However, if his friends and colleagues are to be believed, his bad behavior was only especially bad with ''Ren And Stimpy'', making it less a case of "Prima Donna Director" and more "Guy Who Gets Drunk With Power Way Too Easily."
* Josh Trank once he became involved with ''Film/FantasticFour2015''. Frequently drunk, high, and/or abusive onset (including making Kate Mara cry and almost getting into a fistfight with Miles Teller), to the point that others reportedly had to step in and ghost-direct. Once production wrapped he frequently lashed out at fans on the Internet, at one point taking to 4chan to defend the film.
* People (rightfully) blame the failure of ''Film/{{Alien 3}}'' on Fox's ExecutiveMeddling late in production, but this was a reaction to the [[DevelopmentHistory/{{Alien 3}} earlier time]] when Vincent Ward was attached as director and there was no meddling at all. This went as well as anyone could expect when you hire an up and coming auteur film director with only four movies under his belt, the last of which was a black and white film about a 14th century English village time travelling to 1980s New Zealand, that flat out tells you that he hates the franchise and is only interested in Medieval mysticism when you offer him the job, and you give him free reign to direct the third installment in a futurist horror/action series. Ward promptly threw the script in the trash and commissioned a new one more to his liking, set in a [[ItMakesAsMuchSenseInContext wooden, Medieval-looking space monastery inhabited by luddite monks]], where three of four survivors in the previous film are [[ShootTheShaggyDog unceremoniously killed off in the prologue]] (since Ward wasn't interested in revisiting them, nor letting others do in the future, apparently) and main character Ripley is reduced to a secondary, passive role largely spent in a cell, before having a xenomorph "exorcized" out of her by a [[SpotlightStealingSquad Spotlight Stealing Monk]] who then dies in a HeroicSacrifice. Fox only realized that Ward might not be the right man for the task and fired him after they learned that he wanted to end the film with [[Literature/SnowWhite seven dwarves placing an unconscious Ripley on a escape pod]]. By this point he had wasted 1/5 of the budget in artisan-crafted set pieces that best fit his vision, and production had gone into severe delays.

[[folder:Preparing Homicide Hunter article]]
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Series/HomicideHunter

Series /Homicide Hunter
Homicide Hunter (also known as Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda) is an American documentary television series showcasing the career of retired Colorado Springs police detective Joseph Kenda. Kenda was born August 28, 1946 in Herminie, Pennsylvania. He was a homicide investigator for 19 years and the show is based on his past cases which take place in Colorado Springs at the Colorado Springs Police Department.
This show provides examples of:
Always Gets His Man: Kenda's solve rate is well above the national average.
* By-the-Book Cop: Kenda is not only by the book, he practically wrote the book.
* Cool Old Guy: Kenda has a lot of fascinating stories to tell.
* Deadpan Snarker: Kenda's dry wit is a major appeal.
* Everyone Is a Suspect: Kenda never fully eliminates anyone, he just drops them down his list.
* Good is Not Nice: "I'm not your friend. I'm the police." - Kenda.
* Gotta Catch Them All: Kenda is haunted by cold cases and is often shown reviewing them when he gets the call for a new one.
* Great Detective: Inverted. Kenda has repeatedly stated that he isn't smarter than anyone else, just more stubborn.
* No Sympathy: In regards to suspects. "People have often asked me 'Don't you have sympathy for these people?' If you're looking for sympathy look it up in the dictionary between sh*t and syphilis. No, I don't have any sympathy."
Episodes of this series provide examples of:
* Bastard Boyfriend: "Crazy boyfriend? I LIKE crazy boyfriends." - Kenda.
* Be as Unhelpful as Possible: A common attitude found among people that Kenda questions. At least initially.
* Blatant Lies: "If you are going to lie at least have the decency to be good at it." - Kenda.
* Bluffing the Murderer: A tactic sometimes used by Kenda.
** Click* Hello: When arresting an armed and dangerous suspect.
* Complete Monster: "Some people need to be put in a cage...and kept there." - Kenda.
* Eye Scream: The episode Eye of the Beholder. This is made even more horrifying due to the fact that it ACTUALLY HAPPENED.
* Jerkass: " Being an asshole is not against the law. If it were we'd have to erect a fence around the state of Colorado and inform everyone they're in custody." - Kenda.
* Make It Look Like an Accident: Usually fails ridiculously.
* Miranda Rights: You'd be surprised how many people waive them.
* Necro Cam: Used repeatedly.
* No-Tell Motel: "I've been in a lot of motels where 95 percent of the time you feel compelled to burn your suit after you leave." - Kenda
* Revenge: "There's only three motives. Money, sex, or revenge." - Kenda.
* The Alibi: Self-explanatory. Many suspects give them.
* The Convenient Store Next Door: People tend to target places near where they live for robbery. Kenda has used this fact to his advantage in his investigations.

* ''Super Smash Battle'' and its sequel. The first game consists of one song looping for the entire game, ''[[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants SpongeBob]]'' standing rather out-of-place among a roster of otherwise video game characters, ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' as one of the unlockables, and all-in-all makes for a hell of an experience. The sequel shafts [=SpongeBob=] and Garfield but has a story this time, about a MadScientist trying to take down video game competition with his consol called the "Pig-O," which requires depositing money in order to use (in other words, a home arcade machine). The top video game companies have sent their characters to stop him, and... well... you have not ''lived'' until you have seen a weirdly-modeled Mega Man take on a man in a piggy bank-themed mecha so large that ''his attacks go right over him'', all set to some incredibly unfitting music.

[[folder:The Pacifist Final Boss Knockoff (''Gravity Falls'' Spoilers if you could tell what's real spoilers and what's badfic bullshit... and I THINK ''No Man's Sky'' Spoilers if That Joke is Accurate and the TV Tropes Entry Didn't Miss Something)]]

-->''"GOD DAMMIT!" Tad yelled, "IT SEEMMED LIKE THERE WOULD BE SOMETHING COOL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GALAXY. I WENT THERE WITH ALL THIS POWR AND NOW I'M JUST SENT TO ANOTHER GALAXY! WHAT A RIPOFF! I CAN'T BELIEVE I SPENT 60 BUCKS ON THAT!"\\
"The jig is up Tad!" Soos held out handcuffs, "Now, please stop terrorizing the world with slow lasers, let go of my boyfriend and girlfriends, and get arrested!"\\
He still faced the new galaxy (Not because he was like Mario and going to shout "WELCOME NEW GALAXY" though that would be a cool reference so I'll have Soos do that at the end of this badass fight) but only so he could do a dramatic turn around. Which because of his "Wake Demon" form just looked like flipping around a blue piece of paper, so it was stupid.\\
"Okay at least this will serve as a way for me to reveal my ''OTHER'' form with all this power!"\\
Suddenly flashing lights. When it cleared, Tad looked like his starter human form again, except naked with a rainbow cape made of light and a piece of bread over his ding dong (by ding dong I don't mean those chocolate cakes I mean his penis but chocolate cake and bread sound good together).\\
"By the way Soos you also don't recognize me I mean I'm really..."\\
He turned around but he looked the same. Suddenly, giant cool letters appeared below him:\\
'''THADDEUS RAMIREZ.'''''

* AdaptationalVillainy: He's not a bad guy in canon. Hell, he hardly seems like a bad guy in ''Journals'' (he is completely absent in ''Spooky's''), which is an accomplishment considering how just about every human character except Dipper (and even he's arguable) and Mabel takes a level in jerkass there. He's the BigBad of this [=SBIGlet=].
* AwesomeMcCoolName: "Tad" is actually short for ''Thaddeus''. Thaddeus Strange, or Thaddeus Ramirez after marriage.
* BishonenLine: When he becomes a "wake demon," he turns into a three-eyed square with a skateboard and a moustache[[note]]The choice to go against the common fanon design for "Tad as a second/anti-Bill" was deliberate, as was the absurdity of the design[[/note]]. After he absorbs Melody, Rumble, and all the [=.GIFfany=] copies, ''then'' makes a special form with that power that's... his default human form, only naked aside from a piece of bread, and with a rainbow cape.
* BlackComedy: Keep in mind that, similar to Alucard's abusive older brother in ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', Tad's ParentalAbandonment is 99.99% played for laughs. As is his attacking Soos directly, and his swear-filled breakdown after losing the fight. Hell, Pacifica (along with Nzyvo and the Stans) witnesses most of the fight and has this to say:
-->"holy shit and i thought i had daddy issues."
* FullFrontalAssault: In his "final form," he battles Soos and co wearing ''nothing but a slice of bread''.
* LukeIAmYourFather: He turns out to be the real identity of Soos's dad. He actually breaks the fourth wall and sites the fan wiki as to how this is ''possible'' (if ridiculously unlikely)
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers:
** As of ''The Internet Vs Teen Titans Go'', a future [=SBIGlet=], he's the final villain of a ''Gravity Falls'' story by GPF, and he's the only male one.
** When Soos goes into him to [[RunningGag "SPAVE"]] everyone's souls, he does so in the order he met them.
* NoFourthWall: Once he starts his absorption, the fourth wall effectively shatters for most of his battle. FridgeBrilliance kicks in once it's considered that the first people he absorbs are the professors, which includes Burnda, who was given extra fourth wall-demolishing abilities in the context of Fan's badfics. Apparently the characters are aware of what lessons they learned in episodes set "after" the timeframe of ''Journals''[='=] timeline, but they don't ''stick'' if the episodes "never happened."
-->'''Soos:''' Dude, I've been through this in canon already you're not my real family, the Pines are.\\
'''Melody:''' Um, remember, this timeline is set splitting after "Gift Shop of Horrors." "Blendin's Game" never happened here.\\

[[folder:The No Mercy Final Boss Knockoff (Involves ''Naruto'' but only really contains, like, spoilers for the first handful of episodes. If you squint. And I mean FIRST first)]]

-->''"You know Naruto," she kept locking the doors, "A friend once told m. Manners. Maketh. Man."\\
Kyu turned around and she lowered her head, closed her eyes, and held a hand with a finger half-out. A butterfly landed on the finger. She smirked.\\
"So. Are we just gonna stand here, or are we gonna fight?"\\
"FUCK OFF I'M WINNING OKAY!" Naruto said but he wanted to prep Scan first: Height 5'4'' Weight 110 lbs Bust: C. Easy.\\
He did his regular Blue-Tint Knife attack and--\\
She teleported away in a flash of white light, reappearing behind him.\\
"WELL THAT'S A FUNNY WAY OF TELEPORTING BUT I CAN JUST GO FASTER--" He was about to begin.\\
"Hey. You like doing this by RPG rules, right? You had your turn. Now it's time for mine."\\
When Kyu turned around her eyes were two-colored Sharingans, the left being blue and the right behind yellow. She brought a palm down and Naruto turned blue then his face slammed against the cave's floor, and suddenly a shitload of these spikes with heart-tips struck out from the ground and phased through them as they were made of light magic. But it still hurt his dark and corrupt soul so he rose his head and made a funny sitcom movie face like when the jerk guy gets hit in the groin as he yelled "AHHHHH!" Kyu then stuck the same hand to the right and a lot more spikes just tore out of the wall to her left and starting going at him towards her right, tearing out of that wall like Kyu was currently tearing Naruto a new ass with these fighting skills.\\
"WAIT WAIT WAIT RESERT!" Naruto shouted as he focused his time powers just before he died.\\
Sasuke stared at the whole thing with a jawwed drop.\\
Naruto went back in timeline to when he was in the cave and the door still wasn't locked yet. He was panting in disbelief.\\
"What the FUCKL was that?" He asked Kyu.\\
"Ah! Judging on your reaction, I'd say you nearly died to me once. And before I was even done with my first attack, too." She giggled. "Well, that must mean that I also told you that you could avoid this if you just unbrainwashed everyone on the planet and you refused."\\
"I'LL DO IT NOW! I SWEAR! I'M A CHANGED MAN!"\\
"Yeahhhhhh... no. You see, I'm trying to teach you that your actions stick even though you can just turn back time now. Now I know that you didn't ''really'' change, you're just saying this so that you won't have to fight me again. Well tough shit you sick fucker, you're dealing with ''me'' now."\\
She snapped her fingers. Naruto turned around as the doors closed and automatically locked instantly. When he turned back, she was like she was before, butterfly on her hand and looking down.\\
"The countrysides were NICE and the plants were SINGING and the birds and the sun were almost down from the top of the sky." She said. "The mood is set for people like you..." she opened her eyes and this time they were blank white. I know the Sans thing is black but this is for part of my reference lore. It's a reference to something else (not Homestuck this time, ugh...) "[[AC:to be burning in hell.]]"\\
She did the Sharingan again and this time Naruto could kind of dodge the attack by jumping with a lot of strength, then with the huge rows of spikes coming from the wall he did a flutter thing and focused flying as good as he could. After that was done Kyu put her hand down diagonally and these [[http://bindingofisaacrebirth.gamepedia.com/Stone_Grimace#Brimstone_Grimace floating stone heads with red eyes and horns]] floated into the dark cave and fired out these blood lasers that caused a lot more soul damage to Naruto. He did not go back this time, but barely survived.\\
"Oh yeah, did I mention? From here on out, I'm doing things a little differently. I get to attack first."\\
Naruto scanned her again, but this time he checked things he didn't have to check ever again on anybody: Maximum HP... 1. Attack power... 1. Defense... 0? "The weakest character in the fan fic? Can only deal 1 damage?"\\
"WHAT THE FUCK?" Naruto yelled demandingly.''

Her "battle theme" is apparently "this fucking awesome mashup I have in my head between Megalovania from ''Undertale'', Avatar Beat from ''OFF'', and Hericide from ''Binding of Isaac: Rebirth''. Just picture the songs in a threeway like that."

----

A love fairy wandering around the post-apocalyptic ninja world who tries to make herself as a CoolBigSis figure in Sasuke's life. She's '''heavily''' implied to be part of the "Carrie Curse" for some reason and somehow manages to keep calm in the dire situation. [[BlatantLies And that's just about all there is to her role here.]]

* AlienBlood: [[spoiler:She bleeds '''blue''' when Naruto finally lands the finishing blow on her. Subverted as the blue coloration is the result of Naruto overcharging his Blue Knife with Midnight Bliss-related energy, which temporarly colors her blue internally. The story mentions that it starts fading out just before she undergoes her transformation.]]
* AsLongAsThereIsOneMan: This is her reasoning as to why it's all-but impossible for Naruto to ever truly "win" at his goal. [[spoiler:Even if he takes over the whole planet, as he very nearly does, there's still other planets, galaxies, and ''alternate dimensions''. Who's to say that, of all the possibly-infinite people he could try to go after -- and she correctly assumes that he will ''always'' try to cross planetary and dimensional gaps to build his harem -- he won't find another "Kyu" or "Sans" of sorts that will ''succesfully'' beat him? He doesn't have to experience something like this -- Kyu finishes him off just before the ninja world is completely under his spell. And hell, Kyu and Sasuke themself qualify -- they are literally the last two people on Earth to oppose them, but Kyu is his absolute biggest challenge in the entire story.]]
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: But it has a purpose. [[spoiler:She times a bomb to blow herself up ''just when'' the Midnight Bliss takes hold of her. Not only does she ensure that she won't at least be under Naruto's control should the following fail, but she also hopes dearly (but doesn't have any other choice at that point) that this will frustrate him into turning back time to try to Bliss Kyu ''again''. Fortunately, the latter works.]]
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: '''Heroic''' example. Being alive for hundreds of years, she's fought off various people who have done similar things as Naruto had here, [[spoiler:and of course they all blur together. She barely recalls Naruto himself until the final fight. The only major differences are that A: he's succesfully bested her biological family, and B: she was his mentor, however briefly, so she feels guilt in possibly giving him ideas to use for evil.]]
* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: [[spoiler:Ultimately, word on her real skills and the part she ''actually'' plays in Naruto's downfall never gets out. Naruto is the only person who remembers things when he turns back time, so anyone who caught a glimpse of the fight during the iterations where she threw him around the world are wiped from memory. While brainwashed people still keep their memories after the effects are undone, Kyu specifically set up a barrier that keeps anyone without free will out, so in the final loop, where Naruto did not leave this barrier, he was unable to tell anyone he brainwashed about her hidden powers. Sasuke does not remember due to the timelooping, and while Naruto ''does'' he's obviously dead. Kyu simply tells Sasuke to finish him off and take all the credit for beating Naruto, as she wants to keep her Mary Sue/Gary Stu-hunting skills a secret.]]
* ShoutOut:
** The various iterations of her pre-battle speech quotes or paraphrases, in rough order: ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', ''FanFic/HalfLifeFullLifeConsequences'' (one of the biggest inspirations to all of ''SBIG'', especially its first installment), ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' (which is also where the general "[[AC:should be burning in hell]]" portion comes from),
** She ends up [[spoiler:pissing off Naruto so much that he ends up quoting, almost word for word, the infamous "I HAVE FUCKING HAD IT WITH YOUR SHIT..." rant]] from ''VideoGame/TheHalloweenHack'', only targetting at one person instead of a party. Oh, and he also pretty much undergoes something similar to Ezekiel's fate in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama''.
* WalkingSpoiler: The sheer fact that this fic incarnation of her has ''this'' many tropes [Um... there's more, that's why this looks so small despite that message] and ''this'' much spoiler marking alone is a twist, as it gives away that she's not just a gag cameo as her first appearance makes her out to be. Not only ''that'', but she's responsible for

''It's not so much "harem fics are bad and you're an awful person for writing them" as it is that I just don't like how, from getting the gists of it, it seems like they always overpower the lead and the morality for them is ridiculously one-sided. "People blindly supporting and worshipping the harem-center is good. Anyone opposing them or not wanting them to take power is bad." I just picked Naruto because A: way back before I even saw ''Hellsing'' and got the idea of ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', there was a ''Naruto SBIG'' installment planned and I felt like finally going back to that idea (then again there was also a ''Simpsons'' one about Homer having these brothers named Gomer, Bomer, and Romer and maybe even Yomer that all had Goku-like hair with different colors (Gomer's was green, you could probably guess the other three) but I went "screw that" and took the eventual idea of Homer becoming a nuclear waste-giant mutant and placed it into ''Crconikals'') and B: ''Naruto'' is one of the most written-about fics

That was actually another thing from ''Dark Moon''. According to the NightmareFuel page at least (too lazy to verify whether through actual game or wiki right now), each mansion except Old Clockworks changes mission by mission, as its state worse or it becomes more ominous somehow. I like that idea.

Basically, the red forest area on hardened lava will start having more fire geisers sprout up and have more of a "visible heat wave" effect, the orange canyon/desert area will be subjected to sandstorms, the yellow grassy area themed around electricity will have constant thunderstorms, the gray snow area will be subjected to blizards, the blue lake/water area (actually a swimming pool, but you know, Pikmin are tiny) will have endless rain, and the purple factory area will be coated in smog. There will also be signs that this is not natural, but instead the work of ''someone'' on the island with you trying to halt your progress subtlely. Like the canyon area having a rock formation that looks a lot like a Pikmin. One weak later, the head looks to be cut ''clean'' off. Or how the condition of things at the factory gets visibly ''better'' and ''less'' rusted, when you would expect things to be more direlect after that "safe week" after unlocking the region passes.

So a week into unlocking each area, it will feel much less safe than it initially did, and will remain that way either for the rest of the game or until you 100% it. Because I'm a sadistic bastard like that. I like tiny, subtle spooks in games.

ATTENTION, THIS IS ACTUALLY IMPORTANT: I need help finding a trope where a character whose not well adjusted socially has a strange way of showing or making an apology. The titles I could think of would be "funny way of showing it" or "in his own way", but when I search those titles, neither of them bring up anything useful. Does anyone know if there's a trope to help me? Or do I need to use the Launchpad? And furthermore, is there a specific page on this website where one can request help finding a trope? Because if not, there should be. I'm only using this page because I can't find a page like that, and I figure this page will reach the most people.

Incoming Real Life Example that have just been deleted, and will be posted so I can copy and paste for prosperity and eternal victory (to myself at least)
[[folder:Real Life]]
* Creator/WernerHerzog is a famous real life example. A popular story holds that the equally neurotic actor KlausKinski threatened to walk off the set of ''Film/AguirreTheWrathOfGod'', so Herzog pulled out a gun and forced him to finish the scene at gunpoint. Herzog says that story's apocryphal -- really, he didn't have a gun on him, he just swore that he would murder Kinski and then kill himself if he dropped out of the movie. Kinski, on the other hand, maintained the gun story was true (and had a few other crazy Herzog stories besides; the two were very close friends).
* Creator/StanleyKubrick, who was well known for his repeated takes, had a background in photography. Thus, he focused entirely on the visual aspect of film, and the actors were just props. His reputation ranged from "gifted perfectionist" to this trope to "{{Jerkass}}" depending on who you asked and when you asked.
** For example, during the shooting of ''Film/TheShining'', he verbally abused Shelley Duvall and made her do the same scene over and over in order to get her performance right (some say over 100 takes, [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081505/trivia?tab=tr&item=tr0792955 but it's been denied]]). On the same movie, Scatman Crothers was once reduced to tears as Kubrick shot over 50 takes of a single scene (namely, the one [[spoiler:in which Halloran is axed in the chest by Jack Torrance]]); he collapsed to his knees and shouted "What do you WANT?"[[note]] Both cases may count as EnforcedMethodActing; Kubrick was (in)famous for putting actors under heavy real-life tension if he thought they are not able to show appropriate emotions well enough. Needless to say, few actors met this criterium, so Kubrick terrorized them until the required emotion came organically. Although in the Shelley Duvall case, repeated Steadicam (then a new technology) failure may have also contributed to the need for repeated takes.[[/note]]
* Creator/FritzLang. His retakes often included verbal abuse, beatings, and occasionally [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpXrIaEmOks being set on fire.]]
** With maybe the exception of the beatings, the same can be said of Creator/OttoPreminger.
** The actor playing Freder in ''Film/{{Metropolis}}'' had to go down on his knees so often (the filming of the scene took two days!) that he could barely stand afterwards.
** Notoriously, during the making of ''Film/SecretBeyondTheDoor'', Lang made Creator/MichaelRedgrave film an intimate scene with Joan Bennett six times, with each shot ending with Bennett pushing him out of a hammock and Redgrave bumping his head on the ground. It was a [[DudeNotFunny cruel joke]] given that Redgrave was [[{{Gayngst}} highly insecure]] about his [[BiTheWay bisexuality]]. Bennett's daughter recalled that Redgrave "was a mess" during the filming.
* We also have Lang's contemporary Creator/CecilBDeMille, who was well known for insisting things be as authentic as possible. This included routinely placing actors in very real physical danger, and verbally assaulting those who refused. When told that miniatures would not work for the now-legendary "parting of the Red Sea" scene from ''Film/TheTenCommandments'' and that the only way to achieve the right effect was to dig out an entire parking lot[[note]]Which eventually became ''two'' parking lots ''and'' a section of a street[[/note]] and fill it with water, [=DeMille=] immediately responded with two words: "Start digging." There's a reason why ''Film/BlazingSaddles'' uses him as a reference in slaughter...
* Creator/JamesCameron. Some of his crew took to wearing [[FunTShirt T-shirts]] that read "You Can't Scare Me. I work for James Cameron." Some of his friends refer to his bad temper as his EvilTwin "[[SdrawkcabName Noremac Mij]]". Several actors on ''Film/TheAbyss'' had horror stories; Ed Harris and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio both refused to work with him again after that [[note]]Mastrantonio because Cameron insisted on shooting retakes of a painful CPR scene until the crew "ran out of film stock" (supposedly just as he was becoming satisfied), and Harris because Cameron literally almost ''drowned him''[[/note]], and Harris won't even talk about his experience. During the filming of ''Film/TrueLies'', he apparently refused to allow any of the crew to take bathroom breaks until a shot was [[IncrediblyLamePun in the can]]. During the filming of ''{{Film/Titanic 1997}}'', a crew member put PCP in the wrap party soup as revenge (this didn't work out so well, as dozens of crew members were hospitalized as a result). That said, plenty of actors and crew work with him time and again, so he can't be that bad ''all'' the time... either that or [[MoneyDearBoy the pay]] (or the career boost that starring in a James Cameron movie will offer) is just too good to pass up, no matter how much of a [=Jerkass=] he may be.
** It's possible to cut him a little slack for ''Film/TheAbyss'', but not much, because he was going through a very messy divorce at the time. He's never managed to top that that one, possibly because he's never almost killed any of his other actors, which made Ed Harris so furious that he actually punched Cameron afterwards. Author Creator/OrsonScottCard, who worked with him on the film's novelization, described the experience as "hell on wheels."
** On the set of ''Film/{{Avatar}}'', Cameron kept a nail gun handy to make an example of cell phones that went off on set. According to the actors of that film, though, he's mellowed over the past decade.
* Creator/AlfredHitchcock had such a reputation for this that he was often quoted as having said "Actors are cattle". This led to a later incident on the set of ''Mr. and Ms. Smith'' in which Carole Lombard actually brought heifers onto the set with name tags of the lead actors. Hitchcock responded that he had been misquoted: "I said 'Actors [[NoExceptYes should be treated]] like cattle.'" Some of his frequent collaborators have said that he was never really happy when actually directing a movie, because he had already done the fun part, i.e. completing the film in his head during pre-production. To elaborate:
** While shooting ''Film/TheBirds'', Hitchcock had the birds fed whiskey to make them drunk and aggressive, and for a particular scene had birds repeatedly thrown directly at lead actress Tippi Hedren while he yelled abuse at her in order to get the desired reaction. She was so traumatized by the experience that she had to be hospitalized for a week.
* The infamous voice director Wally Burr, known for directing a number of cartoons in the '70s and '80s. He would frequently have actors redo their lines several times over until they nailed it perfectly, and is cited by some as the reason for the 8-hour recording maximum being cut down to four hours. Veteran voice actor Creator/MichaelBell (whom Burr worked with often) has mentioned that after a session with Burr, the actors' voices would be sore for hours and maybe even a day, and joked that Burr's work with Creator/OrsonWelles on ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'' was the cause of his death a month later. However, Burr himself stated that, despite this hard reputation, he "got the job done successfully and received no complaints about the quality of the voice acting".
* One particularly bad example from the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 30's period of animation]] was Disney veteran Burt Gillett. According to John Canemaker's book "Felix: The Twisted Tale of the World's Most Famous Cat", Gillett was a manic-depressive egotist with a perfectionist mentality; he was known to cause trouble at Creator/VanBeurenStudios for attempting to run the place like he did at Disney's, shifting around or firing personnel, installing expensive things like forcing the animators to do pencil tests, which drove up the budgets like crazy. Veteran animator ShamusCulhane claimed that he seemed to suffer from bipolar disorder, and Burt even ''attacked him with a spindle, after Shamus called him out for lying to Amadee Van Beuren'' one day. Creator/OttoMessmer, who recommended Burt directing the short lived WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat cartoons for the studio, later openly regretted choosing him.
* Creator/FrizFreleng, one of the main directors on the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts at Creator/WarnerBros, was apparently this. He often made his animators redo scenes over and over again. One of the animators, Manny Perez (who worked for him for over a decade) later said in an interview that he grew to hate the man. Not surprising, since he's known for his bad temper (and was even the inspiration for Yosemite Sam).
* Prima donna directors wound up being the undoing of the UsefulNotes/NewHollywood era. After their early works got showered with heaps of praise, they were given ProtectionFromEditors and started to [[SmallNameBigEgo let their egos get the better of them]]. It culminated in disasters like ''Film/HeavensGate'' and ''One From the Heart'', expensive box office bombs that cost their studios millions and [[CreatorKiller bankrupted United Artists]] (in the case of the former) and [[Creator/FrancisFordCoppola its director]] (for the latter).
* Dennis Hopper was this on ''Film/EasyRider'' despite being his first movie as a director. He refused to cut anything from his ''220 minute long version'', so the producers had to dupe Hopper into travelling so the film could be edited to a decent length in his absence. Bad behavior added to the failure of his following production, ''The Last Movie'', caused him to mostly act in the following years.
* Creator/MichaelBay is infamous for a very aggressive film shoot, demanding a lot more from his cast and crew than most directors and sometimes throwing tantrums when anyone doesn't match up to what he wants. This has earned him some enemies; BruceWillis, Creator/ScarlettJohansson and Kate Beckinsale all said they would never work with him again. On the other hand, Creator/JohnMalkovich said that he was warned to not work with him, but he enjoyed the shoot for ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'', commenting that Bay felt like an enthusiastic child. Other cast and crew members have said that Bay is like a General on the front lines, hard to deal with but he gets the job done.
* Troy Duffy, writer and director of ''Film/TheBoondockSaints''. The documentary ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0shntGkUD0 Overnight]]'' details his [[SmallNameBigEgo inflation of ego]] during the making of the film. He kinda went off the rails. While he has tried to [[http://www.slashfilm.com/2009/10/28/the-filmcast-interview-troy-duffy-director-of-the-boondock-saints-2-all-saints-day/ apologize for his past behavior]], if you watch the doc you'll get a better idea of why [[Film/TheBoondockSaintsIIAllSaintsDay the sequel]] spent ''ten years'' in DevelopmentHell.
* Creator/DavidORussell has quite the reputation for being batshit insane. During the shooting of ''Film/ThreeKings'', he physically abused his cast and crew to the point where he kicked a young extra to the ground while yelling at him (when Creator/GeorgeClooney told him to cut it out and he refused, [[TemptingFate calling Clooney a pussy and daring him to throw a punch,]] Clooney proceeded to kick his ass). After hearing that Jude Law was thinking of leaving ''IHeartHuckabees'' to work on ''Film/ThePrestige'', he proceeded to track down Creator/ChristopherNolan to a party and headlocked him until Law returned. His ''IHeartHuckabees''-related shenanigans didn't end there. A NYT article on the set reported that he "rolls on the ground, dances, does push-ups," strips down to his boxers and is seen groping and "rubbing his body up against the women and men on the set," finally culminating in his infamous on-set breakdown. However, it seems that he mellowed with age; no such incidents were reported during the production of ''Film/TheFighter'', ''Film/SilverLiningsPlaybook'' or ''Film/AmericanHustle'' and Clooney said he made up with him.
** Leaked clips like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuihIXf_X_U this one]] show what working with him can be like.
** He is [[http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/movies/2012/11/silver_linings_playbook_reviewed.html supposedly known as]] "David O. Asshole" by crew who've worked with him.
* Animator Creator/RichardWilliams is a legendary perfectionist, completely obsessed with perfectly fluid and smooth hand-drawn animation, nearly all of which is shot on ones (as opposed to the standard 2s or 3s). Despite his reputation as an excellently draftsman and artist and the superb quality of his visuals, he's also repeatedly missed deadlines and overshot his budget on certain projects just because he wants them to be ''that'' perfect. This is arguably the main reason ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' never saw completion despite his working on it for nearly three decades. Investors came and went due to William's unreliability, and he regularly hired and fired people at will, sometimes for something as innocuous as their animation being "too vulgar." When ''Thief'' finally got funding from Warner Brothers, he got worse than ever, demanded elaborate scenes be reanimated from scratch because minor objects were the wrong color and forcing his crew work nearly impossible hours (he refused to give time off for an animator to visit his sick wife in the hospital, and another animator ended up quitting/being fired after Williams likewise refused him time off to spend with his wife and newborn baby). As usual, he missed the deadline and went over budget, resulting in the film being hastily completed without his involvement.
** His head was apparently as big as all outdoors on ''WesternAnimation/RaggedyAnnAndAndyAMusicalAdventure'', his first feature. In addition to his standard of numerous retakes, he demanded two simultaneous animation units on either US coast. This, plus, having to fly him back and fourth each week to supervise, caused the once-modest budget to skyrocket.
* According to rumors, Creator/KunihikoIkuhara from ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', ''Anime/SailorMoon'' and ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum'' fame.
* Creator/ErichVonStroheim was possibly the ur-example of this trope. He was known for being demanding of his actors, and just not caring about budgets (his preferred cut of the film ''Greed'' -- a film that cost an (in 1924) astronomical $500,000 -- clocked in at ''ten hours''). These penchants forced him out of directing by 1929, after massive fights over the Gloria Swanson vehicle ''Queen Kelly'' over the budget and Stroheim's wanting to include "indecent" material into the film, a decision vetoed by both Swanson and producer Joseph P. Kennedy. After that, no studio with an ounce of sanity let him anywhere near that side of a camera ever again. He did, however, find a second career as an actor, including a famed role as the chauffeur in ''Film/SunsetBoulevard''.
* Michael Curtiz also was known for this, to the point of Errol Flynn once getting so angry on set that he climbed up the gantry that Curtiz was abusing the actors from and dangled him over the side! On an early film, a filming of the Biblical story of Noah's Ark, Curtiz neglected to tell the extras that the flood would not be shot with models... instead he arranged for many many gallons of water to deluge the set. Three extras drowned, and several others were injured. Hal Mohr, the cinematographer on the film (who suggested using models to prevent this exact situation from happening) later said: "The murderous bastard never should have permitted a thing like that to happen." This, apparently, was one in a string of incidents that prompted the formation of the Screen Actors' Guild.
* Claudio Fragrasso, the man whom we can thank for directing ''{{Film/Troll 2}}''. When he started filming in America, he insisted on bringing along his Italian production crew, of which only the costume designer knew how to speak fluent English. Despite this, Claudio insisted on writing the script for the movie with his [[BlindIdiotTranslation limited grasp of the English language]]. He also gave his verbal directions in this same pidgin-English. The actors, who were already of limited acting experience having been largely gathered from local towns in a casting call (including one ''mental patient'' on a day trip) were understandably confused. Any attempt to correct this caused the director to angrily tell them to deliver their lines verbatim, claiming that he "knew what Americans said better than they did". This perfect storm of incompetence is the primary source for all of that now infamously hammy dialogue. To this day, Claudio insists that the movie was a cinematic masterpiece and has called the actors "liars" and "dogs" for what they have said about it. During one Q&A session in America, a fan asked "Why aren't there any Trolls in the movie?" Claudio responded by screaming "You understand nothing!"
* William Friedkin has a reputation for this, mainly due to two incidents stemming from ''Film/TheExorcist''. In one, he told Ellen Burstyn the pull on the wires that would yank her off the bed was much lighter than it actually was; she claimed to have received permanent back injury as a result of the scene where Reagan slaps her mother about. Then there was the fact that Rev. William O'Malley (an actual Jesuit priest, playing Father Dyer) wasn't quite nailing the emotional tone of the Last Rites at the end of the movie... so Friedkin, without warning, ''slapped him in the face'' and called for another take, using O'Malley's genuine distress to get the right tone. And composer Lalo Schifrin had tapes of his soundtrack ''thrown out of a window'' by Friedkin, who later used mostly existing music. Like James Cameron, Friedkin is said to have mellowed out in later years, and has also made good with many of the cast and crew of ''The Exorcist''.
* The orchestral conductor Serge Koussevitzky. In the words of a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra:
-->"Koussevitzky was about the best-hated conductor we ever had to play under, and there were times when I would have gladly forfeited my career for the pleasure of spitting in his face. But there was something about him which stopped you -- something which made you realise in time that you were proud to belong to such an orchestra as this, although, and even because, it entailed having to play under him."
* Creator/CharlieChaplin was a notorious perfectionist as a director, although, since he starred in his own films, it could fairly be said that he didn't push anyone harder than he pushed himself (for example, one scene in ''Film/TheCircus'', in which Chaplin's character walks a tightrope, took ''600 takes'' before Chaplin was satisfied).
* According to Creator/RogerEbert, the French director Creator/RobertBresson despised actors for attempting to insert their own interpretation of their characters into their performances, which might conflict his interpretation. His solution was to make them do as many takes of a given scene as was required to break their spirits and drain them of the will to do anything except precisely what he told them to do. Then he started hiring non-professional actors, who weren't as motivated as professional actors to impose their own interpretations on the script. Having said that, some actors loved working with him; Anne Wiazemsky, who played the horribly abused main girl in ''Au hazard Balthazar'', went on to work with Creator/JeanLucGodard, among others.
* Similarly, Creator/DavidFincher isn't too fond of improvisations, and the errant actor who tries to overact will be punished. "I hate earnestness in performance. Usually by Take 17 the earnestness is gone." Many actors who have worked with him, however, are okay with his unorthodox style of directing. One of the few exceptions is Jake Gyllenhaal from ''Zodiac'', who expressed admiration for Fincher's precision and patience while also conveying frustration at the lack of collaboration that one feels when submitting to him.
* Creator/JerryLewis. This may have been a contributing factor to his split with DeanMartin. He was a perfectionist and notoriously difficult to work with. In many of his films, he had complete control over the writing, directing, and acting and served as the producer.
* Part of why ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate'' was such a MovieMakingMess was the fact that Hal Warren [[http://www.jophan.org/mimosa/m18/brandt.htm was full of himself despite a lack of knowledge on filmmaking]].
* Paul Jackson, director of ''Series/TheYoungOnes'' and executive producer of ''Series/RedDwarf''. Notorious for his short temper -- to the point where cast and crew were always especially wary around him even in later years when he wasn't screaming at people so often, purely because of his reputation.
* According to ''Literature/TheDisasterArtist'', Tommy Wiseau, director, writer, producer, ''and'' star of the infamous SoBadItsGood movie ''Film/TheRoom''.
* The Russian writer Alexander Shakhovskoy (1777-1846) was really demanding about his plays being put on stage. They say that once, during the preparations to a play where the action occurred at evening, he ran everywhere, complained that everyone does it wrong... in the end, he turned toward the lamp on the table and said "[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Mom, you're not shining where you should]]".
* Another infamous animator example is Creator/JohnKricfalusi, creator of ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''. Similar to Richard Williams, few deny the quality of his work (even if it isn't their cup of tea), but his refusal to cooperate with executives over animation quality and content has made him extremely frustrating to work with, as he basically expected ProtectionFromEditors up-front. He demanded that animators draw to his ''exact'' specifications, namely never [[OffModel drawing the character the same way more than once]], and personally tore up several artists' works in front of them to make a point. The rumors that he tried to hit on several female employees certainly didn't help, and he was eventually fired from his own hit show. His reputation has yet to recover, forcing him to stick with small indie projects and commercials to avoid more drama.
** However, if his friends and colleagues are to be believed, his bad behavior was only especially bad with ''Ren And Stimpy'', making it less a case of "Prima Donna Director" and more "Guy Who Gets Drunk With Power Way Too Easily."
* Josh Trank once he became involved with ''Film/FantasticFour2015''. Frequently drunk, high, and/or abusive onset (including making Kate Mara cry and almost getting into a fistfight with Miles Teller), to the point that others reportedly had to step in and ghost-direct. Once production wrapped he frequently lashed out at fans on the Internet, at one point taking to 4chan to defend the film.
* People (rightfully) blame the failure of ''Film/{{Alien 3}}'' on Fox's ExecutiveMeddling late in production, but this was a reaction to the [[DevelopmentHistory/{{Alien 3}} earlier time]] when Vincent Ward was attached as director and there was no meddling at all. This went as well as anyone could expect when you hire an up and coming auteur film director with only four movies under his belt, the last of which was a black and white film about a 14th century English village time travelling to 1980s New Zealand, that flat out tells you that he hates the franchise and is only interested in Medieval mysticism when you offer him the job, and you give him free reign to direct the third installment in a futurist horror/action series. Ward promptly threw the script in the trash and commissioned a new one more to his liking, set in a [[ItMakesAsMuchSenseInContext wooden, Medieval-looking space monastery inhabited by luddite monks]], where three of four survivors in the previous film are [[ShootTheShaggyDog unceremoniously killed off in the prologue]] (since Ward wasn't interested in revisiting them, nor letting others do in the future, apparently) and main character Ripley is reduced to a secondary, passive role largely spent in a cell, before having a xenomorph "exorcized" out of her by a [[SpotlightStealingSquad Spotlight Stealing Monk]] who then dies in a HeroicSacrifice. Fox only realized that Ward might not be the right man for the task and fired him after they learned that he wanted to end the film with [[Literature/SnowWhite seven dwarves placing an unconscious Ripley on a escape pod]]. By this point he had wasted 1/5 of the budget in artisan-crafted set pieces that best fit his vision, and production had gone into severe delays.

[[folder:Preparing Homicide Hunter article]]
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Series/HomicideHunter

Series /Homicide Hunter
Homicide Hunter (also known as Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda) is an American documentary television series showcasing the career of retired Colorado Springs police detective Joseph Kenda. Kenda was born August 28, 1946 in Herminie, Pennsylvania. He was a homicide investigator for 19 years and the show is based on his past cases which take place in Colorado Springs at the Colorado Springs Police Department.
This show provides examples of:
Always Gets His Man: Kenda's solve rate is well above the national average.
* By-the-Book Cop: Kenda is not only by the book, he practically wrote the book.
* Cool Old Guy: Kenda has a lot of fascinating stories to tell.
* Deadpan Snarker: Kenda's dry wit is a major appeal.
* Everyone Is a Suspect: Kenda never fully eliminates anyone, he just drops them down his list.
* Good is Not Nice: "I'm not your friend. I'm the police." - Kenda.
* Gotta Catch Them All: Kenda is haunted by cold cases and is often shown reviewing them when he gets the call for a new one.
* Great Detective: Inverted. Kenda has repeatedly stated that he isn't smarter than anyone else, just more stubborn.
* No Sympathy: In regards to suspects. "People have often asked me 'Don't you have sympathy for these people?' If you're looking for sympathy look it up in the dictionary between sh*t and syphilis. No, I don't have any sympathy."
Episodes of this series provide examples of:
* Bastard Boyfriend: "Crazy boyfriend? I LIKE crazy boyfriends." - Kenda.
* Be as Unhelpful as Possible: A common attitude found among people that Kenda questions. At least initially.
* Blatant Lies: "If you are going to lie at least have the decency to be good at it." - Kenda.
* Bluffing the Murderer: A tactic sometimes used by Kenda.
** Click* Hello: When arresting an armed and dangerous suspect.
* Complete Monster: "Some people need to be put in a cage...and kept there." - Kenda.
* Eye Scream: The episode Eye of the Beholder. This is made even more horrifying due to the fact that it ACTUALLY HAPPENED.
* Jerkass: " Being an asshole is not against the law. If it were we'd have to erect a fence around the state of Colorado and inform everyone they're in custody." - Kenda.
* Make It Look Like an Accident: Usually fails ridiculously.
* Miranda Rights: You'd be surprised how many people waive them.
* Necro Cam: Used repeatedly.
* No-Tell Motel: "I've been in a lot of motels where 95 percent of the time you feel compelled to burn your suit after you leave." - Kenda
* Revenge: "There's only three motives. Money, sex, or revenge." - Kenda.
* The Alibi: Self-explanatory. Many suspects give them.
* The Convenient Store Next Door: People tend to target places near where they live for robbery. Kenda has used this fact to his advantage in his investigations.
[[/folder]]

* ''Super Smash Battle'' and its sequel. The first game consists of one song looping for the entire game, ''[[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants SpongeBob]]'' standing rather out-of-place among a roster of otherwise video game characters, ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' as one of the unlockables, and all-in-all makes for a hell of an experience. The sequel shafts [=SpongeBob=] and Garfield but has a story this time, about a MadScientist trying to take down video game competition with his consol called the "Pig-O," which requires depositing money in order to use (in other words, a home arcade machine). The top video game companies have sent their characters to stop him, and... well... you have not ''lived'' until you have seen a weirdly-modeled Mega Man take on a man in a piggy bank-themed mecha so large that ''his attacks go right over him'', all set to some incredibly unfitting music. Watch [[WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} Vinny]] tackle both games [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecQ32c8rKC8 here.]]

-->''"GOD DAMMIT!" Tad yelled, "IT SEEMMED LIKE THERE WOULD BE SOMETHING COOL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GALAXY. I WENT THERE WITH ALL THIS POWR AND NOW I'M JUST SENT TO ANOTHER GALAXY! WHAT A RIPOFF! I CAN'T BELIEVE I SPENT 60 BUCKS ON THAT!"\\
"The jig is up Tad!" Soos held out handcuffs, "Now, please stop terrorizing the world with slow lasers, let go of my boyfriend and girlfriends, and get arrested!"\\
He still faced the new galaxy (Not because he was like Mario and going to shout "WELCOME NEW GALAXY" though that would be a cool reference so I'll have Soos do that at the end of this badass fight) but only so he could do a dramatic turn around. Which because of his "Wake Demon" form just looked like flipping around a blue piece of paper, so it was stupid.\\
"Okay at least this will serve as a way for me to reveal my ''OTHER'' form with all this power!"\\
Suddenly flashing lights. When it cleared, Tad looked like his starter human form again, except naked with a rainbow cape made of light and a piece of bread over his ding dong (by ding dong I don't mean those chocolate cakes I mean his penis but chocolate cake and bread sound good together).\\
"By the way Soos you also don't recognize me I mean I'm really..."\\
He turned around but he looked the same. Suddenly, giant cool letters appeared below him:\\
'''THADDEUS RAMIREZ.'''''

* AdaptationalVillainy: He's not a bad guy in canon. Hell, he hardly seems like a bad guy in ''Journals'' (he is completely absent in ''Spooky's''), which is an accomplishment considering how just about every human character except Dipper (and even he's arguable) and Mabel takes a level in jerkass there. He's the BigBad of this [=SBIGlet=].
* AwesomeMcCoolName: "Tad" is actually short for ''Thaddeus''. Thaddeus Strange, or Thaddeus Ramirez after marriage.
* BishonenLine: When he becomes a "wake demon," he turns into a three-eyed square with a skateboard and a moustache[[note]]The choice to go against the common fanon design for "Tad as a second/anti-Bill" was deliberate, as was the absurdity of the design[[/note]]. After he absorbs Melody, Rumble, and all the [=.GIFfany=] copies, ''then'' makes a special form with that power that's... his default human form, only naked aside from a piece of bread, and with a rainbow cape.
* BlackComedy: Keep in mind that, similar to Alucard's abusive older brother in ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', Tad's ParentalAbandonment is 99.99% played for laughs. As is his attacking Soos directly, and his swear-filled breakdown after losing the fight. Hell, Pacifica (along with Nzyvo and the Stans) witnesses most of the fight and has this to say:
-->"holy shit and i thought i had daddy issues."
* FullFrontalAssault: In his "final form," he battles Soos and co wearing ''nothing but a slice of bread''.
* LukeIAmYourFather: He turns out to be the real identity of Soos's dad. He actually breaks the fourth wall and sites the fan wiki as to how this is ''possible'' (if ridiculously unlikely)
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers:
** As of ''The Internet Vs Teen Titans Go'', a future [=SBIGlet=], he's the final villain of a ''Gravity Falls'' story by GPF, and he's the only male one.
** When Soos goes into him to [[RunningGag "SPAVE"]] everyone's souls, he does so in the order he met them.
* NoFourthWall: Once he starts his absorption, the fourth wall effectively shatters for most of his battle. FridgeBrilliance kicks in once it's considered that the first people he absorbs are the professors, which includes Burnda, who was given extra fourth wall-demolishing abilities in the context of Fan's badfics. Apparently the characters are aware of what lessons they learned in episodes set "after" the timeframe of ''Journals''[='=] timeline, but they don't ''stick'' if the episodes "never happened."
-->'''Soos:''' Dude, I've been through this in canon already you're not my real family, the Pines are.\\

[[folder:The No Mercy Final Boss Knockoff (Involves ''Naruto'' but only really contains, like, spoilers for the first handful of episodes. If you squint. And I mean FIRST first)]]

-->''"You know Naruto," she kept locking the doors, "A friend once told m. Manners. Maketh. Man."\\
Kyu turned around and she lowered her head, closed her eyes, and held a hand with a finger half-out. A butterfly landed on the finger. She smirked.\\
"So. Are we just gonna stand here, or are we gonna fight?"\\
"FUCK OFF I'M WINNING OKAY!" Naruto said but he wanted to prep Scan first: Height 5'4'' Weight 110 lbs Bust: C. Easy.\\
He did his regular Blue-Tint Knife attack and--\\
She teleported away in a flash of white light, reappearing behind him.\\
"WELL THAT'S A FUNNY WAY OF TELEPORTING BUT I CAN JUST GO FASTER--" He was about to begin.\\
"Hey. You like doing this by RPG rules, right? You had your turn. Now it's time for mine."\\
When Kyu turned around her eyes were two-colored Sharingans, the left being blue and the right behind yellow. She brought a palm down and Naruto turned blue then his face slammed against the cave's floor, and suddenly a shitload of these spikes with heart-tips struck out from the ground and phased through them as they were made of light magic. But it still hurt his dark and corrupt soul so he rose his head and made a funny sitcom movie face like when the jerk guy gets hit in the groin as he yelled "AHHHHH!" Kyu then stuck the same hand to the right and a lot more spikes just tore out of the wall to her left and starting going at him towards her right, tearing out of that wall like Kyu was currently tearing Naruto a new ass with these fighting skills.\\
"WAIT WAIT WAIT RESERT!" Naruto shouted as he focused his time powers just before he died.\\
Sasuke stared at the whole thing with a jawwed drop.\\
Naruto went back in timeline to when he was in the cave and the door still wasn't locked yet. He was panting in disbelief.\\
"What the FUCKL was that?" He asked Kyu.\\
"Ah! Judging on your reaction, I'd say you nearly died to me once. And before I was even done with my first attack, too." She giggled. "Well, that must mean that I also told you that you could avoid this if you just unbrainwashed everyone on the planet and you refused."\\
"I'LL DO IT NOW! I SWEAR! I'M A CHANGED MAN!"\\
"Yeahhhhhh... no. You see, I'm trying to teach you that your actions stick even though you can just turn back time now. Now I know that you didn't ''really'' change, you're just saying this so that you won't have to fight me again. Well tough shit you sick fucker, you're dealing with ''me'' now."\\
She snapped her fingers. Naruto turned around as the doors closed and automatically locked instantly. When he turned back, she was like she was before, butterfly on her hand and looking down.\\
"The countrysides were NICE and the plants were SINGING and the birds and the sun were almost down from the top of the sky." She said. "The mood is set for people like you..." she opened her eyes and this time they were blank white. I know the Sans thing is black but this is for part of my reference lore. It's a reference to something else (not Homestuck this time, ugh...) "[[AC:to be burning in hell.]]"\\
She did the Sharingan again and this time Naruto could kind of dodge the attack by jumping with a lot of strength, then with the huge rows of spikes coming from the wall he did a flutter thing and focused flying as good as he could. After that was done Kyu put her hand down diagonally and these [[http://bindingofisaacrebirth.gamepedia.com/Stone_Grimace#Brimstone_Grimace floating stone heads with red eyes and horns]] floated into the dark cave and fired out these blood lasers that caused a lot more soul damage to Naruto. He did not go back this time, but barely survived.\\
"Oh yeah, did I mention? From here on out, I'm doing things a little differently. I get to attack first."\\
Naruto scanned her again, but this time he checked things he didn't have to check ever again on anybody: Maximum HP... 1. Attack power... 1. Defense... 0? "The weakest character in the fan fic? Can only deal 1 damage?"\\
"WHAT THE FUCK?" Naruto yelled demandingly.''

Her "battle theme" is apparently "this fucking awesome mashup I have in my head between Megalovania from ''Undertale'', Avatar Beat from ''OFF'', and Hericide from ''Binding of Isaac: Rebirth''. Just picture the songs in a threeway like that."

----

A love fairy wandering around the post-apocalyptic ninja world who tries to make herself as a CoolBigSis figure in Sasuke's life. She's '''heavily''' implied to be part of the "Carrie Curse" for some reason and somehow manages to keep calm in the dire situation. [[BlatantLies And that's just about all there is to her role here.]]

* AlienBlood: [[spoiler:She bleeds '''blue''' when Naruto finally lands the finishing blow on her. Subverted as the blue coloration is the result of Naruto overcharging his Blue Knife with Midnight Bliss-related energy, which temporarly colors her blue internally. The story mentions that it starts fading out just before she undergoes her transformation.]]
* AsLongAsThereIsOneMan: This is her reasoning as to why it's all-but impossible for Naruto to ever truly "win" at his goal. [[spoiler:Even if he takes over the whole planet, as he very nearly does, there's still other planets, galaxies, and ''alternate dimensions''. Who's to say that, of all the possibly-infinite people he could try to go after -- and she correctly assumes that he will ''always'' try to cross planetary and dimensional gaps to build his harem -- he won't find another "Kyu" or "Sans" of sorts that will ''succesfully'' beat him? He doesn't have to experience something like this -- Kyu finishes him off just before the ninja world is completely under his spell. And hell, Kyu and Sasuke themself qualify -- they are literally the last two people on Earth to oppose them, but Kyu is his absolute biggest challenge in the entire story.]]
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: But it has a purpose. [[spoiler:She times a bomb to blow herself up ''just when'' the Midnight Bliss takes hold of her. Not only does she ensure that she won't at least be under Naruto's control should the following fail, but she also hopes dearly (but doesn't have any other choice at that point) that this will frustrate him into turning back time to try to Bliss Kyu ''again''. Fortunately, the latter works.]]
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: '''Heroic''' example. Being alive for hundreds of years, she's fought off various people who have done similar things as Naruto had here, [[spoiler:and of course they all blur together. She barely recalls Naruto himself until the final fight. The only major differences are that A: he's succesfully bested her biological family, and B: she was his mentor, however briefly, so she feels guilt in possibly giving him ideas to use for evil.]]
* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: [[spoiler:Ultimately, word on her real skills and the part she ''actually'' plays in Naruto's downfall never gets out. Naruto is the only person who remembers things when he turns back time, so anyone who caught a glimpse of the fight during the iterations where she threw him around the world are wiped from memory. While brainwashed people still keep their memories after the effects are undone, Kyu specifically set up a barrier that keeps anyone without free will out, so in the final loop, where Naruto did not leave this barrier, he was unable to tell anyone he brainwashed about her hidden powers. Sasuke does not remember due to the timelooping, and while Naruto ''does'' he's obviously dead. Kyu simply tells Sasuke to finish him off and take all the credit for beating Naruto, as she wants to keep her Mary Sue/Gary Stu-hunting skills a secret.]]
* ShoutOut:
** The various iterations of her pre-battle speech quotes or paraphrases, in rough order: ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', ''FanFic/HalfLifeFullLifeConsequences'' (one of the biggest inspirations to all of ''SBIG'', especially its first installment), ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' (which is also where the general "[[AC:should be burning in hell]]" portion comes from),
** She ends up [[spoiler:pissing off Naruto so much that he ends up quoting, almost word for word, the infamous "I HAVE FUCKING HAD IT WITH YOUR SHIT..." rant]] from ''VideoGame/TheHalloweenHack'', only targetting at one person instead of a party. Oh, and he also pretty much undergoes something similar to Ezekiel's fate in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama''.
* WalkingSpoiler: The sheer fact that this fic incarnation of her has ''this'' many tropes [Um... there's more, that's why this looks so small despite that message] and ''this'' much spoiler marking alone is a twist, as it gives away that she's not just a gag cameo as her first appearance makes her out to be. Not only ''that'', but she's responsible for

''It's not so much "harem fics are bad and you're an awful person for writing them" as it is that I just don't like how, from getting the gists of it, it seems like they always overpower the lead and the morality for them is ridiculously one-sided. "People blindly supporting and worshipping the harem-center is good. Anyone opposing them or not wanting them to take power is bad." I just picked Naruto because A: way back before I even saw ''Hellsing'' and got the idea of ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', there was a ''Naruto SBIG'' installment planned and I felt like finally going back to that idea (then again there was also a ''Simpsons'' one about Homer having these brothers named Gomer, Bomer, and Romer and maybe even Yomer that all had Goku-like hair with different colors (Gomer's was green, you could probably guess the other three) but I went "screw that" and took the eventual idea of Homer becoming a nuclear waste-giant mutant and placed it into ''Crconikals'') and B: ''Naruto'' is one of the most written-about fics

[[/folder]]

That was actually another thing from ''Dark Moon''. According to the NightmareFuel page at least (too lazy to verify whether through actual game or wiki right now), each mansion except Old Clockworks changes mission by mission, as its state worse or it becomes more ominous somehow. I like that idea.

Basically, the red forest area on hardened lava will start having more fire geisers sprout up and have more of a "visible heat wave" effect, the orange canyon/desert area will be subjected to sandstorms, the yellow grassy area themed around electricity will have constant thunderstorms, the gray snow area will be subjected to blizards, the blue lake/water area (actually a swimming pool, but you know, Pikmin are tiny) will have endless rain, and the purple factory area will be coated in smog. There will also be signs that this is not natural, but instead the work of ''someone'' on the island with you trying to halt your progress subtlely. Like the canyon area having a rock formation that looks a lot like a Pikmin. One weak later, the head looks to be cut ''clean'' off. Or how the condition of things at the factory gets visibly ''better'' and ''less'' rusted, when you would expect things to be more direlect after that "safe week" after unlocking the region passes.

So a week into unlocking each area, it will feel much less safe than it initially did, and will remain that way either for the rest of the game or until you 100% it. Because I'm a sadistic bastard like that. I like tiny, subtle spooks in games.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory:
** Anyone familiar with the new-era Koopaling battles would probably be prepped to hop on a Charge just after she's finished with her defensive attack, as you could jump on the Koopalings as soon as they leave their shells. Doing this, however, will ''always'' be met with getting a powerful uppercut delt towards you, as the Charges always leave their defensive mode by attacking upwards. Water is more than aware of this, as the first boss area's hint tells you outright that trying to jump on Alexia's (or, again, ''any'' Charged Mazh for that matter) is a pretty good way to get yourself killed.
* RunningGag: All four of the first world's advice remarks are on how trying to cheap your way through the game with methods you might see in other platformers will ''not'' work here, and instead will lead to death. It ends them all by saying [thing you should not do] is a pretty good way to get youself killed.

[[folder:''Paper Mario: Color Splash'' made my dumb little ''Pikmin'' spinoff idea of some island divided into six color regions (red, orange, yellow, gray, blue, and purple) significantly less likely than its already low chance. Well, I'll keep [=BSing=] about stuff similar to that...]]

* Cobalt Lake is the successor to Area 3, and it shows. An enormous (well, you're actually tiny, but still) abandoned swimming pool that connected into the ocean
* All regions in the game except for the Summit change after you had them unlocked for seven days, and most of these changes imply that ''something'' or ''some'''one''''' is on the island with you, following your movements around. For starters, all six of them start growing mushrooms, which is a pretty bad sign in of itself. What makes matters worse is that you're encouraged to go through these in a linear fashion, going from one region to the next as soon as you unlock the following one, and it usually takes less than seven days to clear a point. What this means is that once you ''finally'' clear Fuchsia Factory and get ready to return to access those Pikmin types you previously could not get, be prepared to have ''four of the regions all change on you at once''.
** Maroon Forest is an exception, as it takes seven days until you've cleared the main cave of Fuchsia Factory. Still, the temperature goes up and more fires and fire geisers begin breaking out.
** Tan Canyon suffers major, clearly not-natural errosion in some of the formations. In particular, the one landmark rock that looks like a stone statue Pikmin ''loses its head''. Well, the head piece is still there, it's just burried in the sand next to the rest of the "body." Oh yeah, and unlike the rest of the "errosion," this looks like a clean cut. Sandstorms become a bit more commonplace.
** The skies around Chartreuse Hills become cloudier and thunder storms become a bit more frequent. What looked like a radio tower in the distance can now be seen knocked over..
** Silver Tundra practically enters a permanent snowstorm.
** Cobalt Lake mostly stays the same, apart from the increase in rain, and... the ''huge'' chunk that appears to be ''bitten'' off of the tile wall seperating the swimming pool with the open ocean.
** Fuchsia Factory gains an overlay of fog, and several of the structures appear to be ''improved'' in shape rather than rusting or deteriorating.
* In the final battle, getting the camera to go underwater will reveal [[spoiler:some sort of ''huge'' mass of tentacles basically making up the "sea floor." Just what in the name of ''hell'' is that, and ]]
* The Roamflies. The name would imply some sort of fly-type creature that wanders around aimlessly, right? Wrong. They're actually ''massive'' beasts that will come after you if sunset hits. Wait too long, and you're insta-killed by their foot.

-->''"GOD DAMMIT!" Tad yelled, "IT SEEMMED LIKE THERE WOULD BE SOMETHING COOL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GALAXY. I WENT THERE WITH ALL THIS POWR AND NOW I'M JUST SENT TO ANOTHER GALAXY! WHAT A RIPOFF! I CAN'T BELIEVE I SPENT 60 BUCKS ON THAT!"\\
"The jig is up Tad!" Soos held out handcuffs, "Now, please stop terrorizing the world with slow lasers, let go of my boyfriend and girlfriends, and get arrested!"\\
He still faced the new galaxy (Not because he was like Mario and going to shout "WELCOME NEW GALAXY" though that would be a cool reference so
I'll keep [=BSing=] have Soos do that at the end of this badass fight) but only so he could do a dramatic turn around. Which because of his "Wake Demon" form just looked like flipping around a blue piece of paper, so it was stupid.\\
"Okay at least this will serve as a way for me to reveal my ''OTHER'' form with all this power!"\\
Suddenly flashing lights. When it cleared, Tad looked like his starter human form again, except naked with a rainbow cape made of light and a piece of bread over his ding dong (by ding dong I don't mean those chocolate cakes I mean his penis but chocolate cake and bread sound good together).\\
"By the way Soos you also don't recognize me I mean I'm really..."\\
He turned around but he looked the same. Suddenly, giant cool letters appeared below him:\\
'''THADDEUS RAMIREZ.'''''

* AdaptationalVillainy: He's not a bad guy in canon. Hell, he hardly seems like a bad guy in ''Journals'' (he is completely absent in ''Spooky's''), which is an accomplishment considering how just
about stuff every human character except Dipper (and even he's arguable) and Mabel takes a level in jerkass there. He's the BigBad of this [=SBIGlet=].
* AwesomeMcCoolName: "Tad" is actually short for ''Thaddeus''. Thaddeus Strange, or Thaddeus Ramirez after marriage.
* BishonenLine: When he becomes a "wake demon," he turns into a three-eyed square with a skateboard and a moustache[[note]]The choice to go against the common fanon design for "Tad as a second/anti-Bill" was deliberate, as was the absurdity of the design[[/note]]. After he absorbs Melody, Rumble, and all the [=.GIFfany=] copies, ''then'' makes a special form with that power that's... his default human form, only naked aside from a piece of bread, and with a rainbow cape.
* BlackComedy: Keep in mind that,
similar to that...]]

* Cobalt Lake
Alucard's abusive older brother in ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', Tad's ParentalAbandonment is 99.99% played for laughs. As is his attacking Soos directly, and his swear-filled breakdown after losing the successor to Area 3, fight. Hell, Pacifica (along with Nzyvo and it shows. An enormous (well, the Stans) witnesses most of the fight and has this to say:
-->"holy shit and i thought i had daddy issues."
* FullFrontalAssault: In his "final form," he battles Soos and co wearing ''nothing but a slice of bread''.
* LukeIAmYourFather: He turns out to be the real identity of Soos's dad. He actually breaks the fourth wall and sites the fan wiki as to how this is ''possible'' (if ridiculously unlikely)
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers:
** As of ''The Internet Vs Teen Titans Go'', a future [=SBIGlet=], he's the final villain of a ''Gravity Falls'' story by GPF, and he's the only male one.
** When Soos goes into him to [[RunningGag "SPAVE"]] everyone's souls, he does so in the order he met them.
* NoFourthWall: Once he starts his absorption, the fourth wall effectively shatters for most of his battle. FridgeBrilliance kicks in once it's considered that the first people he absorbs are the professors, which includes Burnda, who was given extra fourth wall-demolishing abilities in the context of Fan's badfics. Apparently the characters are aware of what lessons they learned in episodes set "after" the timeframe of ''Journals''[='=] timeline, but they don't ''stick'' if the episodes "never happened."

-->''"You know Naruto," she kept locking the doors, "A friend once told m. Manners. Maketh. Man."\\
Kyu turned around and she lowered her head, closed her eyes, and held a hand with a finger half-out. A butterfly landed on the finger. She smirked.\\
"So. Are we just gonna stand here, or are we gonna fight?"\\
"FUCK OFF I'M WINNING OKAY!" Naruto said but he wanted to prep Scan first: Height 5'4'' Weight 110 lbs Bust: C. Easy.\\
He did his regular Blue-Tint Knife attack and--\\
She teleported away in a flash of white light, reappearing behind him.\\
"WELL THAT'S A FUNNY WAY OF TELEPORTING BUT I CAN JUST GO FASTER--" He was about to begin.\\
"Hey. You like doing this by RPG rules, right? You had your turn. Now it's time for mine."\\
When Kyu turned around her eyes were two-colored Sharingans, the left being blue and the right behind yellow. She brought a palm down and Naruto turned blue then his face slammed against the cave's floor, and suddenly a shitload of these spikes with heart-tips struck out from the ground and phased through them as they were made of light magic. But it still hurt his dark and corrupt soul so he rose his head and made a funny sitcom movie face like when the jerk guy gets hit in the groin as he yelled "AHHHHH!" Kyu then stuck the same hand to the right and a lot more spikes just tore out of the wall to her left and starting going at him towards her right, tearing out of that wall like Kyu was currently tearing Naruto a new ass with these fighting skills.\\
"WAIT WAIT WAIT RESERT!" Naruto shouted as he focused his time powers just before he died.\\
Sasuke stared at the whole thing with a jawwed drop.\\
Naruto went back in timeline to when he was in the cave and the door still wasn't locked yet. He was panting in disbelief.\\
"What the FUCKL was that?" He asked Kyu.\\
"Ah! Judging on your reaction, I'd say you nearly died to me once. And before I was even done with my first attack, too." She giggled. "Well, that must mean that I also told you that you could avoid this if you just unbrainwashed everyone on the planet and you refused."\\
"I'LL DO IT NOW! I SWEAR! I'M A CHANGED MAN!"\\
"Yeahhhhhh... no. You see, I'm trying to teach you that your actions stick even though you can just turn back time now. Now I know that you didn't ''really'' change, you're just saying this so that you won't have to fight me again. Well tough shit you sick fucker, you're dealing with ''me'' now."\\
She snapped her fingers. Naruto turned around as the doors closed and automatically locked instantly. When he turned back, she was like she was before, butterfly on her hand and looking down.\\
"The countrysides were NICE and the plants were SINGING and the birds and the sun were almost down from the top of the sky." She said. "The mood is set for people like you..." she opened her eyes and this time they were blank white. I know the Sans thing is black but this is for part of my reference lore. It's a reference to something else (not Homestuck this time, ugh...) "[[AC:to be burning in hell.]]"\\
She did the Sharingan again and this time Naruto could kind of dodge the attack by jumping with a lot of strength, then with the huge rows of spikes coming from the wall he did a flutter thing and focused flying as good as he could. After that was done Kyu put her hand down diagonally and these [[http://bindingofisaacrebirth.gamepedia.com/Stone_Grimace#Brimstone_Grimace floating stone heads with red eyes and horns]] floated into the dark cave and fired out these blood lasers that caused a lot more soul damage to Naruto. He did not go back this time, but barely survived.\\
"Oh yeah, did I mention? From here on out, I'm doing things a little differently. I get to attack first."\\
Naruto scanned her again, but this time he checked things he didn't have to check ever again on anybody: Maximum HP... 1. Attack power... 1. Defense... 0? "The weakest character in the fan fic? Can only deal 1 damage?"\\
"WHAT THE FUCK?" Naruto yelled demandingly.''

Her "battle theme" is apparently "this fucking awesome mashup I have in my head between Megalovania from ''Undertale'', Avatar Beat from ''OFF'', and Hericide from ''Binding of Isaac: Rebirth''. Just picture the songs in a threeway like that."

* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: [[spoiler:Ultimately, word on her real skills and the part she ''actually'' plays in Naruto's downfall never gets out. Naruto is the only person who remembers things when he turns back time, so anyone who caught a glimpse of the fight during the iterations where she threw him around the world are wiped from memory. While brainwashed people still keep their memories after the effects are undone, Kyu specifically set up a barrier that keeps anyone without free will out, so in the final loop, where Naruto did not leave this barrier, he was unable to tell anyone he brainwashed about her hidden powers. Sasuke does not remember
due respect Dr. Cooper, to the timelooping, and while Naruto ''does'' he's obviously dead. Kyu simply tells Sasuke to finish him off and take all the credit for beating Naruto, as she wants to keep her Mary Sue/Gary Stu-hunting skills a secret.]]
* ShoutOut:
** The various iterations of her pre-battle speech quotes or paraphrases, in rough order: ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', ''FanFic/HalfLifeFullLifeConsequences'' (one of the biggest inspirations to all of ''SBIG'', especially its first installment), ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' (which is also where the general "[[AC:should be burning in hell]]" portion comes from),
** She ends up [[spoiler:pissing off Naruto so much that he ends up quoting, almost word for word, the infamous "I HAVE FUCKING HAD IT WITH YOUR SHIT..." rant]] from ''VideoGame/TheHalloweenHack'', only targetting at one person instead of a party. Oh, and he also pretty much undergoes something similar to Ezekiel's fate in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama''.
* WalkingSpoiler: The sheer fact that this fic incarnation of her has ''this'' many tropes [Um... there's more, that's why this looks so small despite that message] and ''this'' much spoiler marking alone is a twist, as it gives away that she's not just a gag cameo as her first appearance makes her out to be. Not only ''that'', but she's responsible for

''It's not so much "harem fics
are bad and you're an awful person for writing them" as it is that I just don't like how, from getting the gists of it, it seems like they always overpower the lead and the morality for them is ridiculously one-sided. "People blindly supporting and worshipping the harem-center is good. Anyone opposing them or not wanting them to take power is bad." I just picked Naruto because A: way back before I even saw ''Hellsing'' and got the idea of ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', there was a ''Naruto SBIG'' installment planned and I felt like finally going back to that idea (then again there was also a ''Simpsons'' one about Homer having these brothers named Gomer, Bomer, and Romer and maybe even Yomer that all had Goku-like hair with different colors (Gomer's was green, you could probably guess the other three) but I went "screw that" and took the eventual idea of Homer becoming a nuclear waste-giant mutant and placed it into ''Crconikals'') and B: ''Naruto'' is one of the most written-about fics

[[/folder]]

That was actually another thing from ''Dark Moon''. According to the NightmareFuel page at least (too lazy to verify whether through actual game or wiki right now), each mansion except Old Clockworks changes mission by mission, as its state worse or it becomes more ominous somehow. I like that idea.

Basically, the red forest area
on crack?"hardened lava will start having more fire geisers sprout up and have more of a "visible heat wave" effect, the orange canyon/desert area will be subjected to sandstorms, the yellow grassy area themed around electricity will have constant thunderstorms, the gray snow area will be subjected to blizards, the blue lake/water area (actually a swimming pool, but you know, Pikmin are tiny) will have endless rain, and the purple factory area will be coated in smog. There will also be signs that this is not natural, but instead the work of ''someone'' on the island with you trying to halt your progress subtlely. Like the canyon area having a rock formation that looks a lot like a Pikmin. One weak later, the head looks to be cut ''clean'' off. Or how the condition of things at the factory gets visibly ''better'' and ''less'' rusted, when you would expect things to be more direlect after that "safe week" after unlocking the region passes.

So a week into unlocking each area, it will feel much less safe than it initially did, and will remain that way either for the rest of the game or until you 100% it. Because I'm a sadistic bastard like that. I like tiny, subtle spooks in games.

* EldritchLocation:
** By day and by night, Smokedrifle Tower was 'tamed'/'conquered' into a research facility with points and objects of mild interest, and the worst is a kind of stalker robot (and her copies) and a fellow researcher with a bad contamination. By night, ''and'' if the Smoke Wraith is activated, the place suddenly gains rise to a number of mysterious undead forces and clearly bends the law of time (you can sleep as much as you want in the bedroom, but it will still be night when you wake up. All clocks in the game become frozen at [[NumberOfTheBeast 6:16]] PM after the Smoke Wraith goes active, which is the time you and your group broke into the tower.)
** Taken UpToEleven in the Endless Mode variant, where you start out at the "top" of a building which lacks a real bottom. While the regular Tower gives you a peek at the outside world in normal bedrooms, every single bedroom has blackened windows much like the dark bedrooms, only [[spoiler:the "regular" variation lacks the Window Figure]] and your one view of the outside is from the roof... where the background is a swirling haze of dark colors.
** A few of the monsters do not kill you outright, but send you to a personalized PocketDimension of their choice. ''They're all pretty weird''.
*** If you're hit by the Shark Statue, you're instantly teleported to a dimension on a boat out in the middle of a red lake, surrounded by some sort of matching forest that you cannot enter. Across from the boat is an island, which appears to be artificial, as there's a metal hatch that opens to a control room which you can use to get out.

** BLOOD MAN is a hell of a lot tougher than he looks. Prod around him too long, and he'll rush up to hug you, which for some reason instantly kills you.

** Even though the protagonist could reasonably just step over them, you ''have'' to crush the projectors with the Gray and Red Soldiers to progress past the beginning of the game/get out of the Red Lake Dimension respectively. A later update [[HandWave "fixed"]] this by giving the areas low ceilings so the player character had to be crawling, and had practically no other choice but to step on the projectors.
** Even if you rightly suspect HRT-9 as an antagonistic force, you'll still have to deal with her in some way or another to get the key to move down to floor 58. You can attack her before she even shows the slightest signs of attatchment, but all that does is cause her to turn into her second form without getting the head start that "trusting" her does.
* ViolationOfCommonSense:
** To get the best ending, you ''have'' to [[spoiler:get warped to the alternate pocket dimension from the Shark Statue. This wouldn't be that much of an issue if the statue was not one of the easier enemies to avoid, and that being sent there also forces you to permenantly summon the Red Soldier for the rest of the run.]]

Go ahead, stab him in the neck when he offers a hand shake, even though you could just as well walk away. You just murdered an innocent man, all in the name of [[WrongGenreSavvy "Being Genre Savvy."]]

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: For a game generally aiming to be a {{Camp}} ClicheStorm on purpose, there is a surprising amount of depth to its lore. One such example in particular fits here, in that the only "true" major enemy (the borderline EasterEgg minor enemies/rare events are another story, due to none of them having any sort of context behind them) in the sense that it would just attack anyone completely unprovoked is the Smoke Wraith. It's directly confirmed that all of the monsters bar said Wraith are locked into the Tower thanks to the containment barrier set up by the researchers of the place. Some may have been a bit more innocent than others, and just got ''incredibly'' pissed off having to be roommates with the Wraith. Complicating things is how the primary reason why ''most'' of the monsters go after you is because they genuinely think that what they do to the protagonist is better than the alternative(s), usually Smoke Wraith becoming more powerful from the extra souls he consumes.
** The Soldier Brothers: Two fallen war heroes who want to find a way within the Tower to bring the other back to life (and, in the case of Gray to Red, undo whatever sort of corruption the Red Shark placed on him) plus send your soul to the afterlife before Smoke Wraith nabs it or genuinely hostile BloodKnight[=s=] that cannot accept how they already fell in combat?
** The notes found inside the Red Lake Dimension implies that the Shark Statue/Red Shark was just an ordinary animal that was cursed with reality warping powers, but being an animal, has ''no idea'' what to do with them, and can't really work them well. Also, this "curse" somehow gives the victim a petrified body outside of their pocket dimension, which is why the shark starts out as a statue.
** How innocent are the researchers doing all of this? Many of them seem to genuinely think that keeping these creatures sealed in Smokedrifle Tower with their "anti-supernatural waves" would be for the better of the world,
* BestKnownForTheFanservice: The face of the game is the Smoke Wraith, the first monster encountered and the beast that acts as the reason why you are on a time limit. The main mook(s) is(/are) the Gray Soldier (and the Red Soldier, although to encounter him you ''have'' to have been hit by a "secondary" monster, so where Red stands on the major/minor monster scale is trickier), spawning in Floor 99 and being the most common chase-monster in the game. Yet people into women best remember it for HRT-9, the self-replicating love robot that tears off her clothes when going hostile. People into men best remember it for Alex P. Cloak, the guy who fights you in a cape, a GagCensor, and nothing else; and he's based on the infamous "Russian Dongcopter" video.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Comes across this way if you interpret the story in a more cynical way. Your player character is a serial burgular who robs people with no real discernable FreudianExcuse, and his only real redeeming traits are that he honestly cares about his friends (who he helplessly watches get slaughtered by the Smoke Wraith at the beginning of the game) and he draws the line at killing, even if it's with dealing with EldritchAbomination[=s=]. Many of the monsters encountered in the Tower ''do'' have depths, but they come across as WellIntentionedExtremeist[=s=] at best, especially as the main reason most of them try to kill you is because they genuinely don't think you'll make it out otherwise... when, if you remove the threat of the other monsters, it becomes ''significantly'' easier to escape as the Smoke Wraith, by himself, poses almost no threat whatsoever. The scientists keeping the monsters inside Smokedrifle Tower are implied to be in a sort of "ignorant at best, assholes at worst" situation
* JerkassWoobie:
** Kev. Unlike Fin, who really is an arrogant ass, Kev
* MemeticLoser:
** Kev. Nobody likes Kev. Fuck Kev.
** The Soldier duo have a rep for this due to being the ''least'' popular of the antagnonists ''in spite of being'' the "main" threats. They're not very popular due to their uninspired designs, lackluster gimmick, being annoying to deal with in-game, and not having as much lore or real twists as the other characters. And yes, by "least," this means ''least'', as just about every minor enemy has more of a fandom than these two.

** The Red Soldier is a horrible, horrible pain. If you want to go through the Front Door Ending, you ''have'' to make him a permanent enemy by destroying the projector that summons him inside the Red Lake Dimension. Basically, he's an inverse of the Gray Soldier: ''Look'' at him, and he goes twice as fast. What makes him ''bad'' is that, unlike the Gray Soldier, you can't just rush yourway backwards through a room he appears in and find the way out. You basically have to blindly guess which Soldier is following you (if it's ''both'', you're pretty much fucked for the entire floor)
** HRT-9. The second-strongest monster in the game with 70% damage per-hit[[note]]The strongest being the Red Shark ''after'' being sent to the statue's pocket dimension. The statue itself deals no damage at all[[/note]], not counting OneHitKill[=s=] like the Smoke Wraith, [[spoiler:Window Monster, or BLOOD MAN]]? Check. Fast as hell? Check. Shows up on ''Floor 59, less than halfway through the game?'' Check. A common joke is that people would think it would be more appropriate if she made her debut in floor ''6''9, with someone (rarely, Water himself) asking "Do you really want ten ''more'' floors with a chance to see her?" which instantly silences the suggestion.

[[folder:''Paper Mario: Color Splash'' made my dumb little ''Pikmin'' spinoff idea of some island divided into six color regions (red, orange, yellow, gray, blue, and purple) significantly less likely than its already low chance. Well, I'll keep [=BSing=] about stuff similar to that...]]

* Cobalt Lake is the successor to Area 3, and it shows. An enormous (well, you're actually tiny, but still) abandoned swimming pool that connected into the ocean
* All regions in the game except for the Summit change after you had them unlocked for seven days, and most of these changes imply that ''something'' or ''some'''one''''' is on the island with you, following your movements around. For starters, all six of them start growing mushrooms, which is a pretty bad sign in of itself. What makes matters worse is that you're encouraged to go through these in a linear fashion, going from one region to the next as soon as you unlock the following one, and it usually takes less than seven days to clear a point. What this means is that once you ''finally'' clear Fuchsia Factory and get ready to return to access those Pikmin types you previously could not get, be prepared to have ''four of the regions all change on you at once''.
** Maroon Forest is an exception, as it takes seven days until you've cleared the main cave of Fuchsia Factory. Still, the temperature goes up and more fires and fire geisers begin breaking out.
** Tan Canyon suffers major, clearly not-natural errosion in some of the formations. In particular, the one landmark rock that looks like a stone statue Pikmin ''loses its head''. Well, the head piece is still there, it's just burried in the sand next to the rest of the "body." Oh yeah, and unlike the rest of the "errosion," this looks like a clean cut. Sandstorms become a bit more commonplace.
** The skies around Chartreuse Hills become cloudier and thunder storms become a bit more frequent. What looked like a radio tower in the distance can now be seen knocked over..
** Silver Tundra practically enters a permanent snowstorm.
** Cobalt Lake mostly stays the same, apart from the increase in rain, and... the ''huge'' chunk that appears to be ''bitten'' off of the tile wall seperating the swimming pool with the open ocean.
** Fuchsia Factory gains an overlay of fog, and several of the structures appear to be ''improved'' in shape rather than rusting or deteriorating.
* In the final battle, getting the camera to go underwater will reveal [[spoiler:some sort of ''huge'' mass of tentacles basically making up the "sea floor." Just what in the name of ''hell'' is that, and ]]
* The Roamflies. The name would imply some sort of fly-type creature that wanders around aimlessly, right? Wrong. They're actually ''massive'' beasts that will come after you if sunset hits. Wait too long, and you're insta-killed by their foot. Oh, and while you don't see their full bodies in-game proper due to the sheer size, the beastiary confirms that they effectively look like Cthulhu.

* TheQuietOne: He ''can'' talk, as he plainly tells you "Stop that" if you try going back and forth between safe areas and unsafe areas. This is, however, the only thing he actually says in-game outside of muttering Fin's name when he enters his area.
* StalkedByTheBell: Unless you're in a bedroom, where he pauses activity. If you get teleported to a pocket dimension, he ''also'' stands still... but will eventually summon a "temporary copy" to go after ''that'' dimension, to get you to move on.

[[folder:Gray Soldier]]

-->''Voiced by Hank Hill.''

The projection-thing that provides the "Rifle" in "Smokedrifle Tower." Found mid-way through Floor 99, you will encounter a projector displaying a three-dimensional hologram of a grayscale man in a camo uniform. Stepping over this projector, [[StupidityIsTheOnlyOption which is the only thing you can do to escape the Smoke Wraith,]] will cause the hologram to come to life and charge after you. He moves twice as fast when not being looked at.

The Red Soldier is unique among the non-minor monsters in that he has no fixed floor to debut on. He only becomes a regular monster after being teleported to the Red Lake Dimension and having to inevidably smash the projector on your way out of the boat.

* PaletteSwap: Basically looks like a reddened version of the Gray Soldier. Justified in that he and the Gray Soldier were twins in life.

[[folder:Mr. Palmzzzz]]

-->''Voiced by Hank Hill.''

[[caption-width-right:200:I'm not walking towards you- it's out of my control. It's the virus! ''I'm the collection of hands!'']]

An ex-scientist who has been infected with some horrible, visceral-based corruption. The scientist was actually a sapient, disembodied mass of arms. The "corruption" is the human-looking thing below him. He makes his debut in Floor 79.

* BodyHorror: Parodied. It looks like he was once an ordinary human, and the infection caused him to grow arms in the place of hair. However, he's actually the mass of arms, and the infection generated an entire, bald human body below him that has control on its own.
* {{Expy}}: His name, part of his design, and arm/hand motif come from Dr. Handzzzz of Water's previous ''Shooting While High''. However, that's where the similarities end.
* MeaningfulName: As he was ''the mass of arms'', the name is meaningful even before his corruption. Especially before his corruption, in fact.
* VideogameCaringPotential: [[spoiler:It ''is'' possible to save him as of Update 1.3, and even help him escape the tower.]]

[[folder:HRT-9 & Other HRT Units]]

-->''Voiced by Hank Hill.''

The HRT (pronounced the same as "Heart") line started with HRT-1, a robot crafted by a "lonely scientist with too much time on his hands" to try to make an idea girlfriend. Getting a little too proud of his successful creation, he decided to give her the ability to "procedurally self-replicate," trying to give himself a robotic harem. He used pocket dimension-related research to give them all the ability to access their own subworld. Both of these ''also'' went well. They asked him if he could immortalize himself by becoming a machine too -- he politely refused until he died of natural causes. This is where things went to hell. With the lack of any "husband" to please, they went increasingly berserk, looking for anyone suitable enough to be a replacement, and this time, ''forcing'' them into a computer to ensure that they won't die again. They were all somehow captured and sealed within Smokedrifle Tower, but have just found the protagonist as a good enough match. They have decided to let HRT-9 be their messanger.

!! HRT-9, HRT Units in General

[[caption-width-right:200:So, how does that sound? We get to leave this place and I can take you to an infinite harem instead! Win-win, right? Right? ...RIGHT?]]

Your introduction to the HRT world. She is first encountered in Floor 59 (as there is an as-of-yet unimplimented monster planned to debut in Floor 69, as with Floors 39 and 19. Not 9, though, as that would not be enough time before the battle with Fin)

* BarbieDollAnatomy: On her breasts by default, can be toggled. You could even tweak the options so that she always spawns with her most modest costume. Regardless of the former option, however, she does have a defined butt.
* FanDisservice: Chases after you nearly nude no matter what. But also
* LeotardOfPower: One of her outfits.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: Unique variation in that she does not appear to be robotic even ''internally''. Down to bleeding a perfect replica of blood and everything.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Played straight in that she's the only female ''humanoid'' monster in the game (the Red Shark is also female, but a completely non-anthromorphized and non-talking animal, so she hardly counts). This is especially bizarre considering Water's track record for wanting to avoid the trope, thought he had talked about adding more female antagonists in later updates.
* StylisticSuck: A minigame made playable if you [[spoiler:befriend her, then make it to the next bedroom -- she installs it in the form of an arcade cabinet.]] It's... basically ''VideoGame/HongKong97'' mixed with the Angry Video Game Nerd's joke idea ''New York 2017''.

"HOWEVER, deep within Cyberhell there was a secret project in progress that was kept a secret! Rumor has it that "
* TakeAThirdOption: [[spoiler:An ending added in the 1.5 update allows you to .]]
* UnlimitedWardrobe: Downplayed. She has a variety of outfits (the exact number, on occasion, goes up per update) which, when a run is started, she may randomly be in. In Endless Mode, she switches her outfit every time she appears as a chaser. She always wears the same thing after capturing the player, which doubles as the "standard HRT uniform."
* WellIntentionedExtremeist: She genuinely thinks that her pocket dimension is a better alternative than risking one's life a ''millisecond'' longer on trying to climb ''all the way down'' to the bottom of the tower. Specifically, she thinks that if the protagonist isn't one-shotted by the Smoke Wraith, he'll be slaughter by Fin during his adventure's last few legs.

!! Tropes Exclusive to Other HRT Units

* SmallRoleBigImpact: HRT-1 only shows up as a cameo if you get sent to the HRT pocket dimension, but she's the reason why -9 exists and is on your ass for over half of the game.

[[caption-width-right:200:YES, THAT'S RIGHT. YOU'RE IN ''THAT PART'' OF THE TOWER AGAIN. ''DEAL WITH IT.'']]

* MeaningfulName: He's named after the guy in an infamous memetic video about a naked dancing pirate.
* SpearCounterpart: To HRT-9. Both of them are the least "damaged-looking/horror-looking" enemies in the whole game,

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fin]]

-->''Voiced by Hank Hill.''

[[caption-width-right:200:Everything is going to SUCK for that tiny bit of time that is the rest of your life!]]

A "terrible guardian" who has taken residence in the lowest five floors of the tower. Most of the other monsters, bar your usual timer of the Smoke Wraith, don't like going near him -- not because of fear, but out of annoyance. He's apparently not a good person to be around, and he's hated even more than Kev.

* BewareTheSillyOnes: As most of the game reminds you that it's ''not'' easy just because it's not horror played completely straight, this guy comes in with an absurd design and a seemingly laughable attack. He's the final boss ''for a reason''.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Absent in Endless Mode. Justified as he's a "story-base boss" with five pre-determined floors, rather than being based on randomly ordered floor types.
* DemBones: Some kind of skull monster. As in, he's a floating skull.
* FinalBoss: Of the main campaign. [[spoiler:Subverted if your route involves saving Mr. Palmzzzz, as you fight the virus corrupting him ''after'' fighting Fin.]]
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Along with Kev. Though unlike Kev, which stems from [[spoiler:him screwing up an escape attempt and the rest of the supernatural entities just not forgiving him for it]], he's disliked for being genuinely obnoxious, arrogant, and loud.
* HopelessBossFight: You cannot harm him in Floors 2-5. Justified as that's not really him, but a hologram he made.
* MeaningfulName: "Fin" is French for "End." He's more-or-less the final boss of the game.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: A 16-bit pixel-like design, in contrast to the more "realistic looking" other enemies.
* StylisticSuck: Looks like a pretty underwhelming 16-bit sprite, in contrast to the more detailed designs of the other characters.

Okay, I've tried replacing this Gurren Lagann video with Masterclass trailer ''TWICE'', and both times the Sandbox's editing mode lagged so much that Google Chrome just kept saying the page was unresponsive. Clearly, ''Something'' is trying to prevent me from showing the residents of Sandboxia the absolute ''glory'' that is the ''VideoGame/MightyNo9'' Masterclass trailer. Well, fuck you, Something. Whatever that Something is.



* ''Super Smash Battle'' and its sequel. The first game consists of one song looping for the entire game, ''[[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants SpongeBob]]'' standing rather out-of-place among a roster of otherwise video game characters, ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' as one of the unlockables, and all-in-all makes for a hell of an experience. The sequel shafts [=SpongeBob=] and Garfield but has a story this time, about a MadScientist trying to take down video game competition with his consol called the "Pig-O," which requires depositing money in order to use (in other words, a home arcade machine). The top video game companies have sent their characters to stop him, and... well... you have not ''lived'' until you have seen a weirdly-modeled Mega Man take on a man in a piggy bank-themed mecha so large that ''his attacks go right over him'', all set to some incredibly unfitting music. Watch [[WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} Vinny]] tackle it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecQ32c8rKC8 here.]]

* EldritchLocation:
** By day and by night, Smokedrifle Tower was 'tamed'/'conquered' into a research facility with points and objects of mild interest, and the worst is a kind of stalker robot (and her copies) and a fellow researcher with a bad contamination. By night, ''and'' if the Smoke Wraith is activated, the place suddenly gains rise to a number of mysterious undead forces and clearly bends the law of time (you can sleep as much as you want in the bedroom, but it will still be night when you wake up. All clocks in the game become frozen at [[NumberOfTheBeast 6:16]] PM after the Smoke Wraith goes active, which is the time you and your group broke into the tower.)
** Taken UpToEleven in the Endless Mode variant, where you start out at the "top" of a building which lacks a real bottom. While the regular Tower gives you a peek at the outside world in normal bedrooms, every single bedroom has blackened windows much like the dark bedrooms, only [[spoiler:the "regular" variation lacks the Window Figure]] and your one view of the outside is from the roof... where the background is a swirling haze of dark colors.
** A few of the monsters do not kill you outright, but send you to a personalized PocketDimension of their choice. ''They're all pretty weird''.
*** If you're hit by the Shark Statue, you're instantly teleported to a dimension on a boat out in the middle of a red lake, surrounded by some sort of matching forest that you cannot enter. Across from the boat is an island, which appears to be artificial, as there's a metal hatch that opens to a control room which you can use to get out.

The main mook(s) is(/are) the Gray Soldier (and the Red Soldier, although to encounter him you ''have'' to have been hit by a "secondary" monster, so where Red stands on the major/minor monster scale is trickier), spawning in Floor 99 and being the most common chase-monster in the game. Yet people into women best remember it for HRT-9, the self-replicating love robot that tears off her clothes when going hostile. People into men best remember it for Alex P.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Comes across this way if you interpret the story in a more cynical way. Your player character is a serial burgular who robs people with no real discernable FreudianExcuse, and his only real redeeming traits are that he honestly cares about his friends (who he helplessly watches get slaughtered by the Smoke Wraith at the beginning of the game) and he draws the line at killing, even if it's with dealing with EldritchAbomination[=s=]. Many of the monsters encountered in the Tower ''do'' have depths, but they come across as WellIntentionedExtremeist[=s=] at best, especially as the main reason most of them try to kill you is because they genuinely don't think you'll make it out otherwise... when, if you remove the threat of the other monsters, it becomes ''significantly'' easier to escape as the Smoke Wraith, by himself, poses almost no threat whatsoever. The scientists keeping the monsters inside Smokedrifle Tower are implied to be in a sort of "ignorant at best, assholes at worst" situation



* MemeticLoser:
** Kev. Nobody likes Kev. Fuck Kev.
** The Soldier duo have a rep for this due to being the ''least'' popular of the antagnonists ''in spite of being'' the "main" threats. They're not very popular due to their uninspired designs, lackluster gimmick, being annoying to deal with in-game, and not having as much lore or real twists as the other characters. And yes, by "least," this means ''least'', as just about every minor enemy has more of a fandom than these two.

* The plot of ''run:gifocalypse'' is that, apparently, [=.GIFfany=] starts an army of CuteMonsterGirls that go around half- or completely-naked, and she herself also gets naked a lot and flirts with Soos. Nothing about a very long (by the standards of a 13/14-chapter fic) trip around the world

Soos, [=.GIFfany=], Melody, and Rumble get into a ''very'' heavy, ''very'' open, and ''somewhat'' (by T-rating standards) explicit four-way romance. There's a RunningGag with both that the story is fake-GagCensor[=ed=] by cutting to ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' characers talking about mundane stuff, with the fake-author asking for a ridiculously large sum of money to pay to see the "uncensored version" of the various Stan/Trickster and Soos/[=.GIFfany=]/Melody/Rumble stuff.

* At the end of ''Bobby Hill Learns Self-Defense'', Peggy borrows a computer Hank was using and tries to Google herself. We see a close-up of Peggy's hand about to hit the "P" key in slow motion, followed by cutting to Hank sweating nervously as dramatic music plays. It "cuts to the credits" right after, but it's pretty obvious what was implied.

Lemme see if I can dig it up:

''Naruto would be the antagonist and his rival Sasuke would be the protagonist.''\\

And thus, this is what kinda gave me the idea (honestly I can't remember if I "rebranded" the concept of NTGWTN before or after reading that, and if it were after I'd be like "Oh hey!

In "Hot and Cold," when they reunite with Stan, Stan implies that he too has had some stalker in the past, and kind of jokes about having a stalker is a "Pines thing," and says that it's a sign that Soos is one of them. Mabel agrees, because you know, Gideon, then jokingly tells Dipper he'll have one in the future to round them out. '''Meanwhile, in a purposefully badly written universe''', enter Not-Bill, the failed result of firing a "dream-materializing" ray gun at Bill and is generally one big middle finger at "Pretty Boy Fanon Bill." He's downright obsessed with Dipper, and this is something that pisses the "real" Bill off to no end.

In "Everything's Bubbly," Bubbles melts the Journals. '''Meanwhile, in a purposefully badly written universe''', the Journals come to life and they're all pretty fucking obnoxious. Read chapter 6 of RG. Then read the entirety of ''Journals''.

* StalkedByTheBell: Unless you're in a bedroom, where he pauses activity. If you get teleported to a pocket dimension, he ''also'' stands still... but will eventually summon a "temporary copy" to go after ''that'' dimension, to get you to move on.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Gray Soldier]]

The projection-thing that provides the "Rifle" in "Smokedrifle Tower." Found mid-way through Floor 99, you will encounter a projector displaying a three-dimensional hologram of a grayscale man in a camo uniform. Stepping over this projector, [[StupidityIsTheOnlyOption which is the only thing you can do to escape the Smoke Wraith,]] will cause the hologram to come to life and charge after you.

having a kind of video game-specific thalassophobia, where thanks to encountering a [[VideoGame/JakAndLaxterThePrecursorLegacy Lurker Shark]] when younger, he hated going inevidably smash the projector on your way out into deep water of the boat.

[[folder:Mr. Palmzzzz]]

An ex-scientist who has been infected with some horrible, visceral-based corruption. The scientist was actually a sapient, disembodied mass of arms. The "corruption" is the human-looking thing below him. He makes his debut
in [=3D=] games. [[AuthorPhobia He damn well wanted to try to make things even worse Floor 79.

is one meaningful even before his corruption. Especially before his corruption, in fact.

The HRT (pronounced the same as "Heart") line started with HRT-1, a robot crafted by a "lonely scientist with too much time on his hands" to try to make an idea girlfriend. Getting a little too proud
of his games where they ''are'' a threat. Basically, successful creation, he decided to give her the especially hostile ones come in four "tiers," three of which are BeefGate[=s=] and ability to "procedurally self-replicate," trying to give himself a robotic harem. He used pocket dimension-related research to give them all the last is flat-out invincible BorderPatrol.

With the background, emerging from the depths lack of any "husband" to feed please, they went increasingly berserk, looking for anyone suitable enough to be a replacement, and immediately giving this time, ''forcing'' them into a "Fuck no, I'm not going out ''there''" vibe computer to players. The fact ensure that they actually resemble tentacles won't die again. They were all somehow captured and sealed within Smokedrifle Tower, but have just found the protagonist as a good enough match. They have decided to let HRT-9 be their messanger.

!! HRT-9

Your introduction to the HRT world. She is first encountered in Floor 59 (as there is an as-of-yet unimplimented monster planned to debut in Floor 69, as with Floors 39 and 19. Not 9, though, as that would not be enough time before the battle with Fin)

* SpearCounterpart: To HRT-9. Both of them are the least "damaged-looking/horror-looking" enemies in the whole game,

[[folder:Fin]]

A "terrible guardian" who has taken residence in the lowest five floors of the tower. Most of the other monsters, bar your usual timer of the Smoke Wraith, don't like going near him -- not because of fear, but out of annoyance. He's apparently not a good person to be around, and he's hated
even ''larger'' creature more than Kev.

* DemBones: Some kind of skull monster. As in, he's a floating skull.
* MeaningfulName: "Fin" is French for "End." He's more-or-less the final boss of the game.
