!! As a Whole

* LoveTriangle: [=.GIFfany=]/Soos/Melody is quickly revealed as [[TriangRelations Type 6]] ([=.GIFfany=] is the "a"), despite looking like a Type 4 at first. Starting from around chapter 6, [[CrackPairing Ford/Darlene gets teased,]] and so they and Stan form something of a Type 10 (Stan's a, Darlene's b, Ford's c). Pyronica is completely uninvolved with any sort of realtionship drama, [[spoiler:as she's too busy being '''the''' final antagonist]].
* ScrewDestiny: The Boundry Guardians were basically supposed to ensure that none of them ever leave the island. The gang fights through hell and back to make sure that they ''do''.
* ThreeLinesSomeWaiting: They often split in to three groups. For the entire first four chapters -- with chapters 2, 3, and 4 focusing on a different group -- it's like this. Chapter 1 has Stan and Ford exploring the island while Soos and Melody stay behind to fix the ship, and just when the Stans leave [=.GIFfany=] reveals herself to them. Stan and Ford get separated thanks to a cave-in, and Stan encounters Darlene while Ford meets with Pyronica. Once they meet up, in chapter 6 they split ''again'', but this time the respective creature is swapped around. (Ford bonds with Darlene a little, Stan ends up in the [=.GIFfany=] society, and Soos and Melody have to deal with Pyronica.) Even then, they still occasionally split up, in to more random and experimental groups still. Part of this is because Fan thought that he "groups up" character groups too often (citing ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals'' as the worst offender, and how that story was more coherant the smaller the given group was), so he splits them more akin to something like ''Homestuck'' once

* AscendedExtra: [=.GIFfany=] and Darlene were originally one-offs, and the latter didn't even re-appear in ''Journal 3''. Pyronica isn't exactly a one-off, but she was just one of Bill's several background monsters and only had a few lines for all her appearances. They're all main characters here. [[spoiler:One of them's even the ''true'' Big Bad.]]
* NotMeThisTime: In the first chapter, each of them get accused as being the reason why the Stan O War II crashed on Fanservice Island. Their respective accusers say that

* TheCuckoolanderWasRight:
**
* NoodleIncident: Another RunningGag centered around him is his stories -- we never get to read them directly, just his accounts and words on them. Often he leaves out details, or (from chapters 5 onward) the narrative just cuts to him as he's wrapping the plot up.



* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: She's in a really weird variation therof where the reason why she's not with Rumble anymore is handwaved that Weirdmageddon made him "too soft," but she likes his reports on what Soos (and the rest of the town) pulled off during the final battle, and the way Soos never really gave up trying to help people over the four days of the apocalypse. She concludes that Soos is more "manly" than Rumble [=McSkirmish=], and goes back to stalking him instead. [[spoiler:It's later revealed that this is a bunch of bullshit -- ]]



* DoubleEntendre: She uses these from time to time, but acts like she's "accidentally" pulling innuendos. She reveals in chapter 11 that every last one of them was ''completely'' intentional.



* MsFanservice: Even compared to Melody and Darlene. She's the only one of the main seven with an actual redesign (which is justified, as EFFI's plot would be a hell of a lot harder if she was a [=2D=] sprite limited to computer programs -- what isn't is her inexplicable ''high height'' and larger bust),

to:

* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler:She ends up back in Fight Fighters pinning after Rumble, although with the ability to leave when she wants, except now she's sharing the game with an ever-growing amount of septillions of other copies of her, ''all'' of them ]]
* MsFanservice: Even compared to Melody and Darlene. She's the only one of the main seven with an actual redesign (which is justified, as EFFI's plot would be a hell of a lot harder if she was a [=2D=] sprite limited to computer programs -- what isn't is her inexplicable ''high height'' and larger bust), is far more seductive than anyone else in the fic, has an army of CuteMonsterGirl[=s=] by her side, and somehow has even more emphasis on her ass than anyone else -- which is saying a lot. She even foregoes the running gag of the fic reminding the readers that a SceneryCensor is "supposed" to be in place completely (almost completely, she turns her self-censoring off some times and the narrative goes back to the scenery variety) due to her ability to pixelate herself. In some ways, she technically exposes ''more'' than the others as her bits ''are'' "on display," just scrambled in a lower resolution. WordOfGod even cites her as the sole reason why EFFI can't exactly ''nudge'' itself over to pass for a T rating. He isn't wrong -- without her, there wouldn't be much reason out-universe to include Soos or especially Melody in the story, and that trio's sub-plots tend to be the most sexual by far, while the Stan "vs" Darlene and especially Ford vs Pyronica conflicts are much closer to a standard adventure.




to:

* TooSpicyForYogSothoth:
** Non-eating example: She finds Great Pikmin Fan's AuthorAvatar so incomprehensible and prone to rambling that even ''she'' doesn't find anything he say intersting, instead just baffling. And she's programmed to find everything her player (the important thing is that, in this story's logic, this extends to anyone who tries to strike a non-violent conversation with her) says to be interesting. And he wasn't even trying to date her -- he just liked her character concept and wanted to share his fan fiction with her. She couldn't understand a word he was saying. He holds the achievement of being the only character in any of Fan's works to actually leave any incarnation of [=.GIFfany=] completely speechless.
** [[spoiler:She '''LOATHES''' the thought of having children. As soon as Soos mentions to her that he dreams about being a father, she immediately loses interest in him and Melody and they're both basically free to go.]]



* BlueAndOrangeMorality: The fic proposes the idea that her kind ''has'' to eat human beings to survive. By trying to target bad people, Darlene was actually doing quite a bit better... in her earlier years. Eventually her standards loosened due to a decline in "TERRIBLE terrible people" visiting and she let her mom's death get to her, starting to go mostly after pickup artists instead.
* FreudianExcuse: The story gives her one by stating that her mom was killed by a supernatural creature hunter that also doubled as a pickup artist.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Even moreso than the other characters -- for one, she's the only one of them who removed her garments willingly. And that's because she did not want blood from Stan on them.
* TookALevelInBadass: While the other two major creatures fit more along the lines of NewPowersAsThePlotDemands (and had some help from [[spoiler:the Lightning Cultist]]), most of Darlene's new feats are entirely of her own skills.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: Quite a lot reveal to how she's not like the other two past creatures:
** Neither Darlene nor any of the [=.GIFfanys=] can leave the island because the Boundry Guardians would leap up and eat them. Pyronica, having limitless teleportation, ''can''. This is actually an early way of letting the reader know that she has more than a few reasons to stick on the island, and she was never really "stranded" there in the first place.



* VillainTeleportation: The only one with the ability to outright warp. And,



* ClimaxBoss: Escaping from the island is part of this story's title. The gang finally manages to do so when they challenge ''these'' things.

** As usual, his dialet is an exaggeration of Fan's online typing style. He overuses commas and words like "although," "basically," and "technically." And if he just learned a new word, he's quick to try to cram that wherever he can -- even if it's used incorrectly.

-->'''GPF:''' Oh my god, then there's ''SBIG''. You'll probably love ''SBIG''. Let me go over it in brief, just, summarizing it as quickly as I possibly can. Okay, you see, there's actually four multiverses. Well, actually, four "main" multiverses and several side multiverses as well. Now, don't exactly confuse "multiverses" with "universes." Each multiverse has its set of universes grouped together, and all of those universes are governed by the same laws of physics and time travel and afterlife and the like per multiverse. But the multiverses work differently. Just picture that the universes are, well, "blots" -- not linear, in general, but the multiverses that they are in are a linear progression as part of this, kind of technical, "challenges of absolute godhood." Where one party is given the option to start up their own multiverse from complete and utter scratch, deciding what would happen and what it would be like. Oh yeah, did I mention that another thing they actually have in common is that they're ruled by a single unified god-like figure? Okay, no, actually, it doesn't have to be "single," there could be multiple gods on one multiverse, but the important thing is that this god or set of gods rules over all universes in that multiverse. Now, about the side multiverses that are not part of the main four -- did I designate those Multiverse A, Multiverse B, Multiverse C, and Multiverse D yet? Okay, I guess I should actually get that out of the way, while the side multiverses and dimensions and stuff -- they're not part of this main chain and usually aren't really the main focus of those stories, but a few of them are and of course ''[=SBIGlets=]'' may have a lot of them or even those that aren't part of the multiverse chain at all -- should I call that chain and the seperate ones that aren't part of it "omniverses?" No, that would imply all of the multiverses in everything, including stuff not written by me, so especially stuff I don't actually like, anyway, let's not use the term "omniverse." I kind of like "multiverse chain," but maybe "multimultiverse" would work just as well. I don't know, I'm still pending on that. Anyway, that's the basics of how the multiverses are structured. Just let me know if you want me to repeat anything.\\
'''[=.GIFfany=]:''' ''(Frozen in a shocked expression)''\\
'''GPF:''' Right! Now, Multiverse A is actually kind of like the ''SBIG'' counterpart to your home world. I mean, "this" world, not the world of ''Romance Academy 7'', but there is kind of sort of a bit of that too. In my real life, you're all these characters of some television show called ''Gravity Falls'' -- yes, it's named after the town you were, uh, for lack of better technical term, kind of sort of "discovered" in except not really. Multiverse A also sort of, in a way, houses the events that this other thing I did, ''The Hair Idealization'', a crossover between ''The Big Bang Theory'' and ''Perfect Hair Forever''. I don't know how many of you would like ''Perfect Hair Forever''. I mean, Giffster, it's like this anime parody, kind of... I don't know THAT much about anime and I try to stay far away from "moe" stuff (Or should I just drop the full-blown S bomb? Should I be the exception to my "rule" that you and your copies are the only characters that swear? Or maybe if I follow it that's kind of going like my real-life self not swearing in front of other people? Then again, I, as the author, don't really consider you even remotely like "other people," my real life self is also considerably more quiet -- then again, me on the internet is also louder than me in real life, so this isn't an accurate depition of me anyway -- I always do try to sort of go for making my self-insert more of a character to the story than some kind of annoying overarching megagod or whatever, which is why my character usually never really gets what he wants and dies a lot, so maybe I shouldn't swear since that's playing along with me being "equals"-ish with characters, except that I break the fourth wall a lot because otherwise what would be the point in having me cameo? I'd just be some guy, and a rather annoying and generic side character, kind of like just a bad self insert Gary Stu except a side guy and not the main character thank goodness, pretty much me being the writer of this is all I have going for me.) but from what I gather it seems like it's kind of like a cross between an anime parody and just being weird, like maybe 25% anime parody and 75% just being weird. There's this schoolgirl character in that that you reminded me of when I first saw the teaser for your episode, her name is Brenda and she also has pink hair and a school uniform with blue and yellow on it, except she has like this "skirt" but not really that only goes around her waist so it's more like it's just covering her navel, and instead of like an actual skirt proper she's just this walking panty shot, except instead of the kind of panties that are normally like made fun of it's this revealing white thong. This is kind of why your skirt keeps flipping over and stuff and it barely covers you too. Out of all the pink-haired anime parodies I have "featured" in my stories so far, you're actually the only one of them to not have some sort of revealing half-naked outfit, for obvious reasons as the origin show you're from in my world is supposed to be kid-friendly (although I guaruntee that if something horrible happens and the show gets a bad reboot that might be subject to change if they just run out of ideas and only want to throw in things to tick off fans of the original ''Gravity Falls''), so I guess you could say that I "fix" that in a really poorly-written manner. Kind of like how you and six other characters from ''Gravity Falls'' are all butt-naked right now. And technically I am too, as I am using a Pikmin for my avatar, and Pikmin don't wear clothes. And by avatar, I mean as an in-story person guy -- normally my avatar as in a sort of icon is Hank Hill smoking, although on this website called TV Tropes it's Plank from this show called ''Ed, Edd n' Eddy''. I have no idea what your version of that show is called but I honestly don't care. Anyway, Multiverse A. So, ''The Hair Idealization'' is actually kind of the result of this one timeline, it's not important. Let's focus on the other one. Multiverse A works similar to how I think your world works -- again, ''Gravity Falls'', not ''Romance Academy 7'' -- where time travel does that, frankly, stupid thing where the thing you're trying to stop happens anyway because the universe is like "I'm just gonna move things around so that it happens anyway" even to the point where it gets really far-fetched, but there is some timeline splitting regardless as I just covered with ''The Hair Idealzation''. Now, this multiverse chronologically actually sort-of (as there are flashbacks and the like, and maybe some ''[=SBIGlets=]'' will go in the past -- probably just one, I might can the whole thing soon) begins with ''Spooky's Jump Scare M-- OH LOOK IT'S BILL CIPHER!'' Uh, Ford, don't actually think that I cut off my monolongue-- I mean conversation by saying that he's back somehow and he's here, that was part of the story's title. Now, all of my fics (and original works) have at least one kind of "shortened" name. In this case, just ''Spooky's''. By the way, fun trivia: originally it was called ''Spooky's House of-- OH LOOK IT'S BILL CIPHER!'' (was there a "J" before the cutoff? I can't remember) because the game that ''Gravity Falls'' was crossed over with was originally naked ''Spooky's House of Jump Scares'', but then the Copyright Police came in and were like "Hey 'Spooky's House' is copyrighted" so they changed it so I had to change it.\\
'''[=.GIFfany=]:''' ''(Still shocked.)''\\
'''GPF:''' Now, this story initially tricks you in to thinking that it replaces a ''Gravity Falls'' episode titled "Northwest Mansion Noir" (With the alt name "Northwest Mansion Mystery," hence why the first chapter in ''Spooky's'' is called "Northwest Mansion Enema" -- get it, it's a play on both trying to bring a third synonymous name and it's mispelled into something kind of technically toilet humor-ish), but in reality it's more like in-between the "canonically-non canon" "Little Gift Shop of Horrors" and the definitely canon "Society of the Blind Eye" (as this is part of this rule where my stories are kind of set whenever they were originally written), where...\\
'''[=.GIFfany=]:''' ''('''Still''' shocked.)''



* BerserkButton:
** Don't think that you can get around her "ignore me and I'll give you an extra battle" by recruiting her, and then firing her. She'll ''still'' put on a fight, except with even more buffed stats than she would if you just refused to recruit her. And those stats are also scaled to whatever point in the game you're at: fire her at Labostoep, and she'll be even stronger than '''Kristie herself.'''



* HateSink: WordOfGod is that practically everything she says to Carlson and/or Lizzen in the First Half is designed to get ''you'' angry. She'll always comes out triumphant, no matter what you do. Show that you're not a friend of the way Emazhes settle things by not recruiting that many Charges to your party and just generally trying to get to her place with as small of a band as possible? She'll call you edgy and thank you for getting rid of anyone that could potentially "get in the way" of her goals. Do the opposite, try to show her ThePowerOfFriendship or... something by going out of your way to befriend each and every Charge until you're pretty much vastly overprepared for fighting her? She's aware that some of the Charges and indeed Emazhes in general can be a bit jerkass-y, so she'll think that they've been softening you up and you'll eventually just find her as "friend material" because you're a doormat. Try attacking her after her battle? She'll call you pathetic [[AMillionIsAStatistic for focusing more on your "relatable hate" while she was actually a great leader to the millions in her place, and for letting other, more questionable Emazhs off the hook.]] Spare her and try to befriend her? ''That's '''exactly''' what she wants out of you. To think she's a good friend.''

* MarathonBoss: Has a fuckton of health, and if you went through more than four biomes (not counting Dekstop or the Infinity Amusement Park itself) and recruited their respective Charges, she scales her health according to how many people you have with you. On a run where you recruit/befirend '''everybody''', she can take well around 10-15 minutes.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: Averted. She does not see Carlson as getting in the way of her being with Lizzen, or visa-versa. She kind of wants ''both'' of them,



* TheReveal: She leads to several.

ViolationOfCommonSense: Throughout the entire game, you're used to a LateArrivalSpoiler, but the designation "HRT" meaning "'''Human-Replicating''' Tera-Wisp" implies formula that you can recruit the major Charges (re: boss battles) by beating them in their possession, and then upon selecting recruit, you'll have an additional (and, oddly enough, often ''harder'') battle where they were created by humans. No, fight you on foot and you'll have to defeat them in that challenge as well. With Ninthee, it's actually the other way around. [Might flip opposite. If you pick ignore (enough times), she'll continue the challenge out of pure spite, but if you pick recruit, she'll surrender and add herself to your Band. And work there for ''free.'' So it would make sense to recruit her... except she's an obsessive sociopath who won't learn jack shit just by showing even the slightest bit of niceness to her, so for moral reasons you're encouraged to do an extra battle with her and gain absolutely nothing in return. It's because of this (gameplay vs story) that around after all...]many players consider the ignore/recruit prompt for Ninthee to be, hands-down, the toughest choice to make in the entire game[[note]]Well, for newcomers, especially people playing through the game blind. Veterans are often more gameplay-focused, so they recruit her without a doubt unless going for a SelfImposedChallenge[[/note]].



* YourPrincesIsInAnotherCastle: In 1.0, an exit portal to Earth will spawn after beating her. In 1.1 through 1.3, she'll simply tell you that the portal is elsewhere (either with Lilith, after clearing all the Extremes, or with Fatephinal, depending on the version). In 1.4 onwards it's played the straighest, as she'll simply give you Kristie Key Piece '''1''' out of three. Lilith and Fatephinal have the other keys.

The game is noteworthy, almost to DancingBear levels, for the way it handles casual nudity by making it the ''only'' "controversal" element within -- there is absolutely no swearing or graphic violence in the game[[note]]To be technical, "meat" ''is'' one of the major elements, so there is a bit of visceral imagry, but nothing worse than, say, ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}''. [[AlienBlood And most of it is violet-colored anyway.]] Nothing really happens to the player characters as they stand[[/note]], and the most ''sexual'' the game ever gets is some very mild verbal advances from the (usually fully-clothed) BigBad. Additionally, there is no ClothingDamage or really ''any'' sort of {{fanservice}} based on subjecting the targets to something. It's made a point that the Emazhes dress their respective way because they want to. And yet the respective The ''Gravity Falls'' fan fic that this is based on is edgier than it, something Water is actually embarassed to admit (not because ''Emazh In'' is less edgy than something, but because he wrote an "edgy"[[note]]In some ways, it's tamer than canon itself, and absolutely nothing compared to a lot of DarkFic in the fandom[[/note]] fan fic of a Disney cartoon to begin with), but it actually serves as a colossal middle finger to

Actually, it's a large middle finger to a number of other things as well. It turns out, under the surface of what seems like an army-management game with boobs in it lies a number of mean bones. Going in to detail would be rather pointless, but a summary would be that it's a SpiritualAntithesis



* AscendedExtra: [=.GIFfany=] and Darlene were originally one-offs, and the latter didn't even re-appear in ''Journal 3''. Pyronica isn't exactly a one-off, but she was just one of Bill's several background monsters and only had a few lines for all her appearances. They're all main characters here. [[spoiler:One of them's even the ''true'' Big Bad.]]



* ComicallyMissingThePoint: A RunningGag is that the highly sexual nature of ''Romance Academy 7'' completely flies over his head. He just thinks of the game as being about "talking," and believes



* DivergentCharacterEvolution: As Fan... "elegantly" puts:
-->"Maybe some people might call the canon Melody a 'Female Soos' or something, those same people would sure as hell not call this Melody one."
* {{Flanderization}}: What's bad is that this is compared to ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage'', an intentionally poorly-written story by the same author. In this case, her perversion from that fic is exaggerated -- . [[spoiler:Seeing as EFFI was intentionally written without much care or effort place in to it compared to Fan's other stories, this is completely intentional.]]



* BatmanGambit: Her plan in chapter 2 when Soos and Melody try to run away from her is to do absolutely nothing, assuming they'll just return to the spot right away. (The fact that this was at night helped.) After they fail at finding either Stan and have a nasty run-in with the centipede-like monsters, they do in fact return towards her.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: As her "physical form" is really not so much a complete "body" as it is a large "shell" of hardened mass that she made, she's practically unkillable. Of course she's the one that gets subjected to things that would normally kill someone else, and always with a MajorInjuryUnderreaction.
* MsFanservice: Even compared to Melody and Darlene. She's the only one of the main seven with an actual redesign (which is justified, as EFFI's plot would be a hell of a lot harder if she was a [=2D=] sprite limited to computer programs -- what isn't is her inexplicable ''high height'' and larger bust),
* ObligatorySwearing: Fan enforced this -- she and her copies are the only characters in EFFI allowed to actually swear, simply because GPF thought it would be funny that ''she'' of all people was foul-mouthed. Melody lampshades this the first time she cusses.



* AttentionWhore: He basically did most of his trollish pranks to the main characters just so that they would be focused on him. He knew about the Cultist ahead of time, he just wanted them to focus on him more than her. It worked, at the cost of basically slashing nearly all of his life expectancy.
* WarmupBoss: He's the first ''real'' threat that isn't just some sort of island animal.

The AuthorAvatar of the guy who wrote the story. He's first found in the middle of the ocean, drowning.

* {{Expy}}: The start of his cameo plays out similar to the introduction of [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Kankri Vantas.]] Just swap out "troll social issues" with "can't stop talking about his own fan fiction and original stories to save his life."
* SelfDeprecation:
** As usual, his dialet is an exaggeration of Fan's online typing style. He overuses commas and words like "although," "basically," and "technically." And if he just learned a new word, he's quick to try to cram that wherever he can -- even if it's used incorrectly.
** His main role is to poke fun at how convoluted and bizarre his works are. And his tendency to constantly talk about them rather than himself or even his interests.
** The gag about [=.GIFfany=] being left completely speechless and actively wanting to get away from him is basically Fan's way of saying that even a machine literally coded to be interested in whatever its player does wouldn't like what he writes.

The villain of an extra "bonus chapter."



!! Gameplay

[...]

After the battle, as usual for Charged Emazhes, a prompt will appear asking the player to either ignore her or recruit her. Unlike most of the other Charge battles, Ninthee will gain her "second wind" if you chose ''ignore'', and will immediately join the team upon clicking recruit. She will not warn of this if the player clicks "recruit" immediately, but she will say it if they click "ignore."

Each time the player selects "ignore," Ninthee will keep telling them that they have absolutely no benefit strategy-wise from kicking her off the Band, as her second wind will only act as a follow-up to a difficult battle without any rest in-between, will not drop anything, and will not give the Band a powerful new recruit. She says that the only possible reason anyone would pick ignore is to attempt to prove her wrong. Even after picking ignore enough to initiate her on-foot battle and then defeating her, she will triumphantly assume that Carlson and Lizzen would simply "come back anyway" before zipping through the ground and disappearing in the game until Kristie's defeat.

If Ninthee is recruited, on the other hand, she will gladly join with the Band

VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaacAntibirth (Doodling up a character list) QUICK EDIT: I was not expecting [[folder:Adored By The Network: Toonvision]]
* The biggest example of network adoration would be ''Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ''. It went from being confined to the ''Xtreme'' block of programming to the only show used as schedule filler, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork screwing over everything]] from ''VideoGame/{{Tamagotchi}}'' to former network darling ''Bistrosity'', and having marathons for every occasion from Thanksgiving to Easter, despite only having 52 episodes. It got to the point where the show would cycle through all its episodes ''every month'' (and sometimes in ''one week!''). It finally ended when the rights to the show expired in 2016, but despite that, Toonvision marathoned every episode in existence before
it left the network for good just to actually give it a proper send-off.
* Following the departure of ''[[Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ Powerpuff Girls Z]]'', the new favorite seems to be ''{{InsaniWorld}}'', which took over ''Powerpuff Girls Z'''s slots on the network following its departure despite only having 13 episodes (however it has 26 segments).
* The first example would be ''WesternAnimation/{{Gumby}}''. The series would often
have a page considering how marathons for occurrences such as MLK Day, and would eventually run until 2008 before becoming one of the canon game's page first examples of being [[ScrewedByTheNetwork screwed by]] ''Powerpuff Girls Z''.
* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' was the ''Powerpuff Girls Z'' of early Toonvision along with ''Gumby''. It would marathon frequently wherever ''Gumby''
didn't seem fit, and the two shows would frequently take up the entire schedule.
* Original series-wise, ''Bistrosity'' was the first network darling; airing marathons whenever the network had an excuse and being run up
to list it from '''6-7 times a glance. I guess it won't be weird day''' in its prime and even ending with a movie that I'm doing this wrapped up all the plot threads before being screwed by ''Powerpuff Girls Z'' a few years after it stopped making new episodes.
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyokoEvolution'' was treated extraordinarily well by Toonvision unlike Creator/CartoonNetwork's handling of [[WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko the original show]]; it was even ''hyped up'' by Toonvision with a countdown timer not only running on Toonvision itself, but on After Dark as well (given that ''Code Lyoko'' appeals to a majority of After Dark's viewers, its no surprise). It's also one of the very few shows that ''wasn't'' screwed by the network's undying love of ''Powerpuff Girls Z'', as it went on to air every episode with each one massively hyped up in the timeslot of Wednesdays at 7pm, with repeats the following day at 5:30pm
before the game itself Thursday night premiere block. For the last few episodes of the series' run, it also aired a repeat as ''the first show on After Dark''. Leading up to the final episode, Toonvision marathoned every episode of not only ''Evolution'', but ''the original show'' as well, even ''preempting'' After Dark; the only time Toonvision has a page, since done so (not even the ''Powerpuff Girls Z'' send-off preempted the block).
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'' was served well through its 9 years on Toonvision, whether
it '''does''' was on the main schedule or the network's ''Xtreme'' action block. It got good promotion and several marathons, even though they weren't even ''Bistrosity''-level amounts of marathons.
* Following ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'''s screwing by Cartoon Network, the show moved to Toonvision where they proceeded to show the remaining episodes of the original show followed by the three sequel shows with heavy promotion and even marathons to allow people to catch up. It continues to rerun to this day, despite being confined to early mornings.
* ''Family Values'' was ''Bistrosity'' 2.0 during its time as a first-run program, with the network using any excuse possible to marathon the series. And it eventually came to dominate the schedule until it ended in 2011.
* During the remainder of 2005 (November & December) and most of 2006, Toonvision would play the TV movie ''WesternAnimation/FurbyIsland'' using every possible excuse from Valentine's Day to the Fourth of July. Since Thanksgiving 2006, ''Furby Island'' has not been played by the network and it has been revealed that they
have a page!

they didn't even air all the episodes. The show also changed timeslots erratically through its entire run, going from 3pm weekdays to 6am to ''exclusively'' on Saturday mornings at 6am, before being removed from the schedule. It was removed from the network website and they pretend like the show never aired in the first place. However, it ''did'' end up moving to Toonvision Classic, who has treated ''Alvin'' much more nicely.
** This has become Main/HilariousInHindsight as when the 1983 ''[[WesternAnimation/AlvinandtheChipmunks Alvin and the Chipmunks]]'' began airing in 2008, it was treated ''much more nicely'', having weekday timeslots for nearly ''two years'' until it became a victim
of characters controlled at the network's everlasting love of ''Powerpuff Girls Z''.
* ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaAndTheGroovieGoolies'' was never liked by the network. It went from weekday airings to
the same time. Jacob fate as ''The Alvin Show''; placed at 6:30am exclusively on Saturday mornings following ''Alvin''.
* When the sexual allegations against Bill Cosby hit in December 2014, ''WesternAnimation/FatAlbertAndTheCosbyKids'', which had made a return to the network a few months prior, was given a deliberate screwing over, going from healthy weekday morning slots to airing at 6am on ''Sundays'' before being removed for more ''Powerpuff Girls Z'' reruns.
* Whenever Toonvision can get its hands on ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'', they ''never'' seem to treat it well. It first appeared on the schedule in 2004 following its removal from Cartoon Network, and it was relegated to early morning slots unlike other shows such as ''The Centurions'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}'' before its removal in 2005. When it came back in 2014, things were initially better for the series with it having multiple weekend timeslots and one weekday slot...for a month, at least, until it suffered the same fate as ''Alvin'' and ''Sabrina'' in favor of more reruns of ''Powerpuff Girls Z''. It has since returned to Creator/{{Boomerang}}, who doesn't treat the show that well either.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelSuperHeroes'' has been treated horribly by the network ever since the first run ended. When the second run began, it would only show one episode ''every three months'', either at 6:00am on Saturdays or before After Dark began on Sundays. When the rights expired, the network didn't even bother to renew them, and not even its nighttime block After Dark could save the show (many fans of After Dark had genuinely enjoyed the show).
* ''Anime/GForceGuardiansOfSpace''
is the ''Smurfs'' of action cartoons when it comes to Toonvision. It ran exclusively at 3am on Sundays (before After Dark was around) from when it began airing in 2001 to when it was taken off in 2002 after just a few months. The show returned in 2007 as one with the "regular" pinkish-colored skin of most of the starters of the ''Xtreme'' block of action programming, where many hoped it would do better...only to be screwed by none other playable alter egoes than ''Powerpuff Girls Z''.
* ''Manga/{{Black Butler}}'' got this treatment during its final few months on Xtreme. It went through heavy censorship
and light brown hair, while Esau is was reduced to 10:30pm, the red-skinned one last timeslot of the block, with pink hair.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Afraid
no reruns, with no plans by Toonvision to air the even more brutal second season of the show.
* ''The Original Dolphin'' was the Main/NetworkRedHeadedStepchild of the first slate of Toonvision's original programming, having the shortest run of the three originals and being taken off the air rather quickly. It was fortunate enough to make a comeback to the schedule when Toonvision was celebrating its 10th anniversary, however it was taken off after two weeks for [[Main/NotMeThisTime surprisingly not]] ''[[Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ Powerpuff Girls Z]]'', but ''Ghostly Rock''.
* ''Psychotional'' is to date the only Toonvision Original Series to have been screwed ''while it was still airing''. Revolving around a group of convicted felons' daily lives at the Psychotional Correctional Facility, the show caused a massive uproar due to being marketed as a kids' show. Despite garnering a large cult following, the show was buried at 10:30pm in the Main/FridayNightDeathSlot and was cancelled after one season. The cult following of the series kept it from being written off and it continues to air on After Dark to this day.
* ''Insanity From the Mind of John Doe'' was Toonvision's answer to Cartoon Network's ''WesternAnimation/{{Mad}}''. It failed to capture ''MAD'''s audience and was cancelled and written off after one season. And yes, it was replaced with ''Powerpuff Girls Z'' reruns.
* After ''Family Values'' ended, it went from being ''Bistrosity'' 2.0 to the ''Smurfs'' of Toonvision original programming, changing timeslots erratically until it was overtaken for more ''Powerpuff Girls Z'' reruns.
* Toonvision's attempt at a preschool block, Funhouse, was hit ''bad'' by this. It started in September 2010 airing weekday mornings from 7am to 3pm. While it was definitely nice for people who didn't carry the Nick Jr. channel and couldn't access either Nickelodeon or Disney's preeschool programming, fans of Toonvision's other programming were ''not'' happy about its long airtime. Eventually, the network began changing the timeslots to odd ones such as Tuesdays from 6am to 7am to Saturdays from 6am to 6:30 am (containing nothing but 15 minute shorts) every other week. It was finally put to rest in June 2011, with Toonvision airing no preschool programming since then.
* ''Naruto: Shippuden'' was treated harshly by Xtreme, airing at 10pm from May 21 to June 25, 2011, making it through only ''six episodes'' before having its timeslot moved erratically from anchoring the block at 7pm to being buried in the middle at 9:30 until the block itself was cancelled on August 18, 2012. ''Shippuden'' was quickly ushered off for (unsurprisingly) more ''Powerpuff Girls Z''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Where do we begin? Hasbro gave Toonvision the rights to broadcast reruns the show due to low carriage of Hub Network/Discovery Family, but Toonvision made it their business to ensure that no one except ''really'' hardcore fans would ''ever'' have a shot at seeing the show. Not only did it frequently change time slots a la ''The Alvin Show'', but they would frequently take it off the schedule for as long as ''three months''! Eventually, [[Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ what happened next should be obvious]], and it ended up moving to ''Toonvision Classic'' of all places, which has even ''less carriage'' than The Hub!
* ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' seemed to be the most despised show the network ever brought to Xtreme. It was part of the launch lineup, but compared to shows such as ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' and ''Series/{{Zixx}}'', Xtreme made it their business to run ''Xiaolin'' into the ground. The block's programmers hinting that Toonvision executives ''forced them'' to air the series probably doesn't help matters.
* ''Furby Island Adventures'' was screwed over in its final season due to the decline of the ''Toys/{{Furby}} 2012'' line. The network assumed that since sales were declining, people would quit watching the show (even though it was still
getting Suicide King spectacular ratings rivaling those of Cartoon Network's ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo''), which is odd considering how its about the ''Furby'' of all things. While initially placing it at the tail end of the Friday night premiere block, the network ''destroyed'' the show's ratings by accident, seeing as they automatically use any cards or pills they come across? No worries, placing new episodes at 10:30am weekdays with no advertising whatsoever in the middle of the last season's run and dragged it does not spawn when playing as them.
on into oblivion. When it finally ended in June 2015, the ''minute'' after the final episode aired, the network removed the show from its schedule, replacing it with [[Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ the obvious]].

Kyu just kind of stared at him for a while, but then shrugged and went "Okay." and started walking towards the exit of the cave.

"WAIT WHAT!" Sasuke shouted. "BUT HE JUST TOOK OVER THE WHOLE WORLD! HE'LL-- HE'LL KILL ME! I HONESTLY DO NOT THINK I CAN VERY MUCH TAKE HIM ANY MORE :(!"

"Don worry." Kyu answered. "I got you covered. Guaridan angel/fairy, after all."

She walked past Naruto as he approached and got closer to sasuke and said "Yeah you bet your ass I'll be after taking control of her ass too. Because why leave just one person un-controlled in my new dictatorship-- uh... I mean clan restoration. I'LL BE THE GREATEST HAREM MASTER LORD IN--

A loud slam. Some kind of giant cave door neither Naruto nor Sasuke noticed before was closed.

And Kyu was still inside the fighting room, being the one that closed it.

Then she started adjusting what looked like locks to it.

"Manners. Makth. Man." She said as she locked it more. Then she turned to Naruto. "Do you know what that means?"

"It means you're trying to be a smartass! STOP! I DON'T LIKE THAT!"

Kyu began chuckling. "Look Naruto. I'll give you the same option I gave all those other tweens that... well, tried to take over something like you are and I had to be the ''last'' resort to stop them. Just put your weapon down, dismiss your spell, and I totally won't make you cry. Otherwise... well..."

She began laughing a lot.

"You'll ''really'' not like what happens next. And let's just say... you only get '''one''' shot at this. You might think you have unlimited tries, but I can read a Peggy Sue when I see one."

"ARGH! FUCK YOU I'M NOT GIVING THIS UP NOW THAT I'M SO CLOSE!"

"Yeah... keep thinking you're 'so close,' it'll make this job of mine a ''lot'' easier dude."

He rushed after her but then her eyes got that Light Sharingan thing Sasuke also gained and she gave a thumb's down like before. Suddenly, Naruto turned blue and found hiomself getting yanked harshly towards the ground. Then a bunch of these spike things with hearts for the tips stuck out of the ground, but kind of went through him like a ghost and was only doing damage in a weird one-at-a-time way.[[/quoteblock]]

[[folder:Adored By The Network: Toonvision]]
* The biggest example of network adoration would be ''Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ''. It went from being confined to the ''Xtreme'' block of programming to the only show used as schedule filler, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork screwing over everything]] from ''VideoGame/{{Tamagotchi}}'' to former network darling ''Bistrosity'', and having marathons for every occasion from Thanksgiving to Easter, despite only having 52 episodes. It got to the point where the show would cycle through all its episodes ''every month'' (and sometimes in ''one week!''). It finally ended when the rights to the show expired in 2016, but despite that, Toonvision marathoned every episode in existence before it left the network for good just to give it a proper send-off.
* Following the departure of ''[[Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ Powerpuff Girls Z]]'', the new favorite seems to be ''{{InsaniWorld}}'', which took over ''Powerpuff Girls Z'''s slots on the network following its departure despite only having 13 episodes (however it has 26 segments).
* The first example would be ''WesternAnimation/{{Gumby}}''. The series would often have marathons for occurrences such as MLK Day, and would eventually run until 2008 before becoming one of the first examples of being [[ScrewedByTheNetwork screwed by]] ''Powerpuff Girls Z''.
* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' was the ''Powerpuff Girls Z'' of early Toonvision along with ''Gumby''. It would marathon frequently wherever ''Gumby'' didn't fit, and the two shows would frequently take up the entire schedule.
* Original series-wise, ''Bistrosity'' was the first network darling; airing marathons whenever the network had an excuse and being run up to '''6-7 times a day''' in its prime and even ending with a movie that wrapped up all the plot threads before being screwed by ''Powerpuff Girls Z'' a few years after it stopped making new episodes.
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyokoEvolution'' was treated extraordinarily well by Toonvision unlike Creator/CartoonNetwork's handling of [[WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko the original show]]; it was even ''hyped up'' by Toonvision with a countdown timer not only running on Toonvision itself, but on After Dark as well (given that ''Code Lyoko'' appeals to a majority of After Dark's viewers, its no surprise). It's also one of the very few shows that ''wasn't'' screwed by the network's undying love of ''Powerpuff Girls Z'', as it went on to air every episode with each one massively hyped up in the timeslot of Wednesdays at 7pm, with repeats the following day at 5:30pm before the Thursday night premiere block. For the last few episodes of the series' run, it also aired a repeat as ''the first show on After Dark''. Leading up to the final episode, Toonvision marathoned every episode of not only ''Evolution'', but ''the original show'' as well, even ''preempting'' After Dark; the only time Toonvision has done so (not even the ''Powerpuff Girls Z'' send-off preempted the block).
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'' was served well through its 9 years on Toonvision, whether it was on the main schedule or the network's ''Xtreme'' action block. It got good promotion and several marathons, even though they weren't even ''Bistrosity''-level amounts of marathons.
* Following ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'''s screwing by Cartoon Network, the show moved to Toonvision where they proceeded to show the remaining episodes of the original show followed by the three sequel shows with heavy promotion and even marathons to allow people to catch up. It continues to rerun to this day, despite being confined to early mornings.
* ''Family Values'' was ''Bistrosity'' 2.0 during its time as a first-run program, with the network using any excuse possible to marathon the series. And it eventually came to dominate the schedule until it ended in 2011.
* During the remainder of 2005 (November & December) and most of 2006, Toonvision would play the TV movie ''WesternAnimation/FurbyIsland'' using every possible excuse from Valentine's Day to the Fourth of July. Since Thanksgiving 2006, ''Furby Island'' has not been played by the network and it has been revealed that they have wrote the movie off as of 2007.
[[/folder]]
[[folder:Screwed By The Network: Toonvision]]
* Toonvision's biggest screw was that of ''WesternAnimation/TheAlvinShow''. It premiered with [[InvisibleAdvertising little to no promotion]] and they didn't even air all the episodes. The show also changed timeslots erratically through its entire run, going from 3pm weekdays to 6am to ''exclusively'' on Saturday mornings at 6am, before being removed from the schedule. It was removed from the network website and they pretend like the show never aired in the first place. However, it ''did'' end up moving to Toonvision Classic, who has treated ''Alvin'' much more nicely.
** This has become Main/HilariousInHindsight as when the 1983 ''[[WesternAnimation/AlvinandtheChipmunks Alvin and the Chipmunks]]'' began airing in 2008, it was treated ''much more nicely'', having weekday timeslots for nearly ''two years'' until it became a victim of the network's everlasting love of ''Powerpuff Girls Z''.
* ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaAndTheGroovieGoolies'' was never liked by the network. It went from weekday airings to the same fate as ''The Alvin Show''; placed at 6:30am exclusively on Saturday mornings following ''Alvin''.
* When the sexual allegations against Bill Cosby hit in December 2014, ''WesternAnimation/FatAlbertAndTheCosbyKids'', which had made a return to the network a few months prior, was given a deliberate screwing over, going from healthy weekday morning slots to airing at 6am on ''Sundays'' before being removed for more ''Powerpuff Girls Z'' reruns.
* Whenever Toonvision can get its hands on ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'', they ''never'' seem to treat it well. It first appeared on the schedule in 2004 following its removal from Cartoon Network, and it was relegated to early morning slots unlike other shows such as ''The Centurions'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}'' before its removal in 2005. When it came back in 2014, things were initially better for the series with it having multiple weekend timeslots and one weekday slot...for a month, at least, until it suffered the same fate as ''Alvin'' and ''Sabrina'' in favor of more reruns of ''Powerpuff Girls Z''. It has since returned to Creator/{{Boomerang}}, who doesn't treat the show that well either.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelSuperHeroes'' has been treated horribly by the network ever since the first run ended. When the second run began, it would only show one episode ''every three months'', either at 6:00am on Saturdays or before After Dark began on Sundays. When the rights expired, the network didn't even bother to renew them, and not even its nighttime block After Dark could save the show (many fans of After Dark had genuinely enjoyed the show).
* ''Anime/GForceGuardiansOfSpace'' is the ''Smurfs'' of action cartoons when it comes to Toonvision. It ran exclusively at 3am on Sundays (before After Dark was around) from when it began airing in 2001 to when it was taken off in 2002 after just a few months. The show returned in 2007 as one of the starters of the ''Xtreme'' block of action programming, where many hoped it would do better...only to be screwed by none other than ''Powerpuff Girls Z''.
* ''Manga/{{Black Butler}}'' got this treatment during its final few months on Xtreme. It went through heavy censorship and was reduced to 10:30pm, the last timeslot of the block, with no reruns, with no plans by Toonvision to air the even more brutal second season of the show.
* ''The Original Dolphin'' was the Main/NetworkRedHeadedStepchild of the first slate of Toonvision's original programming, having the shortest run of the three originals and being taken off the air rather quickly. It was fortunate enough to make a comeback to the schedule when Toonvision was celebrating its 10th anniversary, however it was taken off after two weeks for [[Main/NotMeThisTime surprisingly not]] ''[[Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ Powerpuff Girls Z]]'', but ''Ghostly Rock''.
* ''Psychotional'' is to date the only Toonvision Original Series to have been screwed ''while it was still airing''. Revolving around a group of convicted felons' daily lives at the Psychotional Correctional Facility, the show caused a massive uproar due to being marketed as a kids' show. Despite garnering a large cult following, the show was buried at 10:30pm in the Main/FridayNightDeathSlot and was cancelled after one season. The cult following of the series kept it from being written off and it continues to air on After Dark to this day.
* ''Insanity From the Mind of John Doe'' was Toonvision's answer to Cartoon Network's ''WesternAnimation/{{Mad}}''. It failed to capture ''MAD'''s audience and was cancelled and written off after one season. And yes, it was replaced with ''Powerpuff Girls Z'' reruns.
* After ''Family Values'' ended, it went from being ''Bistrosity'' 2.0 to the ''Smurfs'' of Toonvision original programming, changing timeslots erratically until it was overtaken for more ''Powerpuff Girls Z'' reruns.
* Toonvision's attempt at a preschool block, Funhouse, was hit ''bad'' by this. It started in September 2010 airing weekday mornings from 7am to 3pm. While it was definitely nice for people who didn't carry the Nick Jr. channel and couldn't access either Nickelodeon or Disney's preeschool programming, fans of Toonvision's other programming were ''not'' happy about its long airtime. Eventually, the network began changing the timeslots to odd ones such as Tuesdays from 6am to 7am to Saturdays from 6am to 6:30 am (containing nothing but 15 minute shorts) every other week. It was finally put to rest in June 2011, with Toonvision airing no preschool programming since then.
* ''Naruto: Shippuden'' was treated harshly by Xtreme, airing at 10pm from May 21 to June 25, 2011, making it through only ''six episodes'' before having its timeslot moved erratically from anchoring the block at 7pm to being buried in the middle at 9:30 until the block itself was cancelled on August 18, 2012. ''Shippuden'' was quickly ushered off for (unsurprisingly) more ''Powerpuff Girls Z''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Where do we begin? Hasbro gave Toonvision the rights to broadcast reruns the show due to low carriage of Hub Network/Discovery Family, but Toonvision made it their business to ensure that no one except ''really'' hardcore fans would ''ever'' have a shot at seeing the show. Not only did it frequently change time slots a la ''The Alvin Show'', but they would frequently take it off the schedule for as long as ''three months''! Eventually, [[Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ what happened next should be obvious]], and it ended up moving to ''Toonvision Classic'' of all places, which has even ''less carriage'' than The Hub!
* ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' seemed to be the most despised show the network ever brought to Xtreme. It was part of the launch lineup, but compared to shows such as ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' and ''Series/{{Zixx}}'', Xtreme made it their business to run ''Xiaolin'' into the ground. The block's programmers hinting that Toonvision executives ''forced them'' to air the series probably doesn't help matters.
* ''Furby Island Adventures'' was screwed over in its final season due to the decline of the ''Toys/{{Furby}} 2012'' line. The network assumed that since sales were declining, people would quit watching the show (even though it was still getting spectacular ratings rivaling those of Cartoon Network's ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo''), which is odd considering how its about the ''Furby'' of all things. While initially placing it at the tail end of the Friday night premiere block, the network ''destroyed'' the show's ratings by placing new episodes at 10:30am weekdays with no advertising whatsoever in the middle of the last season's run and dragged it on into oblivion. When it finally ended in June 2015, the ''minute'' after the final episode aired, the network removed the show from its schedule, replacing it with [[Anime/DemashitaPowerpuffGirlsZ the obvious]].

* HilariousInHindsight:
** The game's development was of ''Rebirth'' and was worked on before ''Afterbirth''. With that in mind, some of the elements are... surprisingly prophetic. The alternate chapters to the Basement and Caves are, respectively, a water-themed sewer area and a mine with a lot of fire and lava. In other words, a switch of the Burning Basement and Flooded Caves. Then there's [[spoiler:Corpse, a dead version of the Womb... as the hidden "Blue Womb" ended up being.]]

Kyu just kind of stared at him for a while, but then shrugged and went "Okay." and started walking towards the exit of the cave.

"WAIT WHAT!" Sasuke shouted. "BUT HE JUST TOOK OVER THE WHOLE WORLD! HE'LL-- HE'LL KILL ME! I HONESTLY DO NOT THINK I CAN VERY MUCH TAKE HIM ANY MORE :(!"

"Don worry." Kyu answered. "I got you covered. Guaridan angel/fairy, after all."

She walked past Naruto as he approached and got closer to sasuke and said "Yeah you bet your ass I'll be after taking control of her ass too. Because why leave just one person un-controlled in my new dictatorship-- uh... I mean clan restoration. I'LL BE THE GREATEST HAREM MASTER LORD IN--

A loud slam. Some kind of giant cave door neither Naruto nor Sasuke noticed before was closed.

And Kyu was still inside the fighting room, being the one that closed it.

Then she started adjusting what looked like locks to it.

"Manners. Makth. Man." She said as she locked it more. Then she turned to Naruto. "Do you know what that means?"

"It means you're trying to be a smartass! STOP! I DON'T LIKE THAT!"

Kyu began chuckling. "Look Naruto. I'll give you the same option I gave all those other tweens that... well, tried to take over something like you are and I had to be the ''last'' resort to stop them. Just put your weapon down, dismiss your spell, and I totally won't make you cry. Otherwise... well..."

She began laughing a lot.

"You'll ''really'' not like what happens next. And let's just say... you only get '''one''' shot at this. You might think you have unlimited tries, but I can read a Peggy Sue when I see one."

"ARGH! FUCK YOU I'M NOT GIVING THIS UP NOW THAT I'M SO CLOSE!"

"Yeah... keep thinking you're 'so close,' it'll make this job of mine a ''lot'' easier dude."

"GRRR..."

He rushed after her but then her eyes got that Light Sharingan thing Sasuke also gained and she gave a thumb's down like before. Suddenly, Naruto turned blue and found hiomself getting yanked harshly towards the ground.[[/quoteblock]]

* Steven Universe isn't drawn on computer; it's actually ''hand drawn and inked on paper, and there are about '''10,000''' drawings per episode.'' [[http://charlesoberonn.tumblr.com/post/144701924827/land-of-deserts-and-metronomes-oh-shit Check it]].
* The show managed to parody everything related to pop culture, from ''Manga/InitialD'' to ''WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadrunner''. And it makes them ''work''. Very few other shows are able to do this without being completely self-aware, and no others could do this and hold on to a deep, coherent plot.
* That an ''WesternAnimation/UncleGrandpa'' and ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' crossover even ''exists''. Despite it being vehemently hated against by ''SU'' fans the moment it was announced, or that ''UG'' creators were trolled incessantly about its creation, the fact remains that it still got made. And because both ''UG'' and ''SU'' teams have such a respect for each others work, the episode seamlessly blended the two universes together for a hilarious non-canon enjoyment.
** And despite the backlash, there ''are'' fans of both shows that enjoyed the crossover and had genuine fun in watching it and making fanart about it (or shipping certain characters like Lion and Tiger).
** And the fact that now there's a Kickstarter to revive ''WesternAnimation/SwatKats'' [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1820796125/swat-kats-revolution from the creators themselves]]- after having been referenced in "Say Uncle"- it's likely that reference opened the floodgates for the fans of that show to start the ball rolling.
* The 30-second promo for the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgoyUxo61Vg "In Too Deep"]] event manages to combine this with NightmareFuel, by completely avoiding any hint of lightheartedness that ''Steven Universe'' commercials usually portray, including a really well-done DarkReprise of Pearl's lines "If you could only know, what we really are" from the extended theme. It also shows [[BehemothBattle Alexandrite fighting Malachite]], as well as Peridot and Steven using the drill to tunnel into the earth to confront The Cluster. All in all, it does its job of getting the viewer pumped for May 12th, and then some!
* The entire creation of Mystery Girl, which accomplished the seemingly impossible task of more or less killing all extant ships for Pearl, because everyone instantly fell in love with her new canon love interest. And keep in mind, this is for a character that has not had a single line of dialogue as of her introductory episode.

* {{Anvilicious}}:
** ''The Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage'' tries to give a ''genuine'' aesop (as it's the StylisticSuck ''SBIG'', this is rather rare) about being more aware of what you're ''actually'' doing versus what you ''say'' you're doing, never be quick to lump up anyone you disagree with as a sort-of hive mind enemy, and don't shelter yourself off from criticism. (And also not to let yourself get brainwashed by social media.) It does this by having Gravity Falls tear itself into two extreme opposing sides, both of which are ultimately shown to be in the wrong. The problem with this is that it ''roughly takes up half the story'', and the in-universe controversy of the Stan vs Melody election has to share screentime with... well, an action-themed storyline about ''preventing evil robot knockoffs of the main characters from causing the apocalypse'', so it feels rather forced in and a huge momentum killer.
** Fan admitted that ''361 Striking Degrees'' piled on the "don't automatically hate change" message a little too blatantly, and kind of over-promoted The Power of Teamwork as well.



* DeconstructionFic: While he says he's more fond of reconstructions, that does not stop him from getting more deconstructive from time to time.
** ''naruto the guy with the ninja'' staddles between this and a full-blown TakeThat at harem WishFulfillment "powerful [lead character]" fics ([[SelfDeprecation mostly due to Fan's own Old Shame]]) by portraying someone (in this case Naruto, a common subject of these types of stories) gaining some extreme power, a large amount of women, and control over the village as a bad thing. Naruto becomes a childish dictator thanks to the sheer overpowered abilities he's simply born with, and the focus is on a number of survivors trying to ([[spoiler:and eventually succeeding with]]) taking him down and restoring order to the world. The fic also goes over that if such stories try to play HardWordHardlyWorks straight... well, let's just say that Fan mentions hard work a lot ''for a reason''.
** ''Escape From Fanservice Island'' does this twofold, one towards the beginning and a different one towards the end. Interestingly, when one is at work, the other is handled in more of a reconstruction-y manner. Neither of which are exactly exclusive to ''Gravity Falls'', but fandoms in general.
*** The first is at the DracoInLeatherPants trope. In short, [...] The story does, however, end with some kind of middle ground: Fan doesn't think there's anything inherantly wrong with redemption in of itself, so long as there is an actual development towards it and the character doesn't just jump from an asshole to a sobbing, regretful wreck in the span between canon's events and the fic's events.
*** The second is towards contrived "Embarassed Naked Female (or Male)" stories, or any general fanservice that focuses on humiliation of being exposed in public. While the cast is on the island, it's at AffectionateParody levels -- Soos lampshades that he was not expecting a story where ''both'' the men and women end up in the buff, pointing out how American sitcoms (particularly animated ones like ''Family Guy'') tend to do the former more while anime tends to do the latter. After some jokes about how overly-contrived it is, the nudity immediately takes a backseat and the characters quickly just lose all shame completely. Then they leave the island and end up in public where they have to avoid cops, things change. The fic spends that first bit of them trying to make it to Piedmont going over how a NakedPeopleTrappedOutside situation would ''not'' be fun, not be sexy, and instead a horribly painful and scarring experience. While this only really applies for chapter 9, the rest of the story does not bother trying to reconstruct it. GPF reportedly did this because he had a preference towards ShamelessFanserviceGirl[=s=], but he got the idea that the ReluctantFanserviceGirl was ''far'' more popular. He wanted to write something where the readers are supposed to ''genuinely sympathize'' with the character(s, in this case six) being forced in the situation instead of oggling them.




to:

* TakeThat:
** Fan says that his all-time biggest fan fiction pet-peeve is TheStationsOfTheCanon, '''especially''' if the author resorts to reusing the same dialogue word-for-word. He's been relatively quiet about that in-story for the most part because he could not exactly figure out ''how'' to make fun of it, but he eventually found a few ways:
*** His short MS Paint ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' comic ''JUST DO SOMETHING NEW ALREADY!'' starts out in some hypothetical "final battle" between Steven and White Diamond where the former is sent back to the events of "Gem Glow" just as the latter is about to shatter him, and he's explicitely told by the same "excuse plot force" that did so that this is distinct from the way his previous time-travelling device worked and he ''can'' alter events without them happening again anyway. So what does Steven do? Nothing different. For the whole series. And when it seems like he ''finally'' has a chance to change it, contrivance gets in the way of it anyway.

''The King and the Hundred Naked Knights'' (NSFW for nudity, otherwise it's tamer than [[Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures its inspirations]]) is an MS Paint webcomic posted on the MS Paint Adventures forum's Artbound thread.

In the distant past, six demons were released from their dark EldritchLocation, but they were successfully "weakened" in a way that no witnesses managed to catch how. Some theorized that they were sealed inside some ruins. Others that they were transformed. Cut to the "present" -- which is actually somewhere around the Middle Ages of an AlternateHistory -- and the great, infamous [[FullFrontalAssault naked]] King Hendricks of a tiny independant settlement strikes fear into all criminals that try to go near it with his army of super-trained forces. All of which also go in the buff, and all of which have specialized mystic swords

Saying much more would be a bit spoiler-ific, aside from the minor inspiration drawn from ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', various survival games with a nude option, and oddly enough, ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService''.

!!

* TheAce:
** All of the Knights seem absolutely perfect. They can [=MacGyver=] themselves just about anything despite usually starting off in the nude with only their swords and the bracelets used to summon them (and even then, until the demons get involved, they only use the latter);
* DevilButNoGod: Unless the races of the non-human Knights count (and it's heavily implied that they are neutral figures that allied with humans), there are no "good" divine beings in the world thus far. There are, however, demons, although information of their exact origin is unclear and they seem completely unlike demons from any religion or belief. It's actually a minor plot point that the swords used by the Knights are the ''only'' known "true holy" artifacts on the planet.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: There appear to be a number of humanoid fantasy races integrated with humanity. When it comes to the Knights in particular, it's unclear whether there are even humans in their ranks at all -- the twenty-four ones with fully saturated-colored swords are ''definitely'' some sort of elemental-beings, but the rest of them are a bit harder to peg. Most of them being colored almost the same as their respective swords will do that.
* AnachronismStew: Very intentional, it's set in a ''really'' convoluted AlternateHistory. Great Pikmin Fan has yet to peg a specific year (he ''will'', hasn't decided yet, and is leaning to "1000-ish" out of the wide range "Middle Ages" gave him[[note]]He's considered 1077 simply because it's [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Philip J. Fry's pin number]][[/note]]), but there's an industrial-age factory in Asia that [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Nosfo]] takes residence in, as well as a working railroad running to the Great Pyramids. A city in modern-day Canada looks a hell of a lot like something flat-out futuristic (although it's implied aliens are involved in that), and at one point '''an airplane''' can be seen flying in the background.

* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** The demons at the beginning are associated with red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple -- it's the color ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes in the smoke. [[spoiler:Look at the Nine-Fold Council. While all of them are dressed in muted sepia colors, five of them have some kind of accessory or part of their outfit that isn't -- one red, one orange, one yellow, one blue, and one purple. Those five are all demons -- the other four are genuine representatives who had no idea they were working alongside the demons. The green one is Hendricks himself.]]
** It's said that each demon has a sort-of "element" directly based on the six Sage-powers from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime''. The Green One is based on "forest." [[spoiler:Recall that the story's "present" time begins with Hendricks getting up for his daily routine in his room -- which is ''flooded'' with plants.]]
** Hell, even look at the title. [[spoiler:It's ''The King and '''the''' Hundred Naked Knights. Towards the exposition, King Hendricks himself refers to them as the King and '''his''' Hundred Naked Knights. This implies that, eventually, he and the group will end up on different sides.]]
* ImprobablyFemaleCast: Par for the course for GPF (who stated that he hates both TheSmurfettePrinciple ''and'' when a story feels like it goes out of its way to have a completely 50/50 gender ratio), in this case the story attempts to justify this by claiming that most of the men in the kingdom were killed in war -- combined with its small size, there aren't even a hundred male ''citizens'', let alone male potential Knights. There is only ''one'' male Knight in the group.
* {{Jerkass}}:
** Quazzax. Most of the other demons are somewhere around CardCarryingVillain and generally give off vibes that they're having genuine fun with what they're doing. Quazzax, by comparison, just comes off as a grump who hates the undead.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Just like ''361 Striking Degrees'' and Fan's other, similar works, this features a huge cast of fighting characters that tend to work together during the screen-time. Unlike them, however, there is no distinguished group of "main twelve" -- he gives ''all one hundred of them'' at least some bit of detail and day in the limelight, to make up for how he downgraded his "colorful nude/near-nude army" down to "just" one hundred.
* MeaningfulName:
** The two Rweyeb Shards = RYB Shards. It's associated with the six demons, and they use the RYB color model. In contrast to the Hundred Naked Knights, which are color-coded based on using RGB for the "intervals."
* NotHyperbole: [[spoiler:The drink that the Knights all take a shot of after a major victory is called ichor. It's not just a fancy name -- it's literally divine blood, although in this case of demons.]]
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: They come from some kind of "shadow world," they can range in appearance from a completely enormous dog-furry to a man with an unusually long fish-like lower "half," to some kind of fleshy shadow monster.
* ShoutOut:
** After [[spoiler:Hendricks gets both Rweyeb Shards and reveals that he was actually evil]], he stands so that his new NightmareFace is in front of a large diagram of a six-petal flower. He then tells the Knights [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} "You idiots."]]
** As with the ''Crconikals'' installment, Fan basically uses the six elements from ''Ocarina of Time'' again. This time, the particular sextet is used by ''bad guys''.
* SignificantAnagram: Quite a lot.
** The last name of King Hendricks is "Lasmalss," which is an anagram of "Smallass." He's an expy of Hank Hill and has that same type of shrunk butt.
** The oddly-industrial-for-1077 fictional city of Yorctaf is an acronym of "Factory."
* WholePlotReference: Oddly enough, to ''VideoGame/PaperMarioColorSplash''. Our protagonist(s) have the aid of what is basically a sort of security system and try to unite six things that have been scattered along the land. They visit a vaguely western-styled canyon (despite this taking place long before the "Wild West" as we know it was even really a thing), a parallel world (though this is merged with the previous western-area), a fort out in the ocean,
* WrongGenreSavvy: It's a RunningGag that one character would "assume" the "genre" to be one thing, then get corrected by another character, only for ''that'' character to be corrected later on, with the chain repeating as such.

The order is a bit switched around here -- there's also a blue area associated with dying, but that must be visited ''after'' the "split," while in ''Isaac'' it's before. After all of that, you get to assemble a key that opens the door to a giant mega-boss, and from that is a battle against the grand TrueFinalBoss with the default form of a giant head that tests your skills against everything else in the game. There's also optional bosses based on the Sins, albeit super-boss versions of all of them. The greed one even has the largest butt, a reference to Ultra Greed's infamous ass.

With "flames" that have screaming or agonized faces on them. And a lot of Emazhes that are incredibly powerful and refuse to talk to you until after you've negotiated with them.

** Aformentioned "Ninthee does not show up at all, and the slightly changed cutscenes prove that this isn't a bug."
** "Shadow Fatephinal." If your seed has a "1" between two "6"s (in other words, has "616" in it in a way), and you're playing at night -- ''both'' in-game and in real life according to your system clock -- there is a small chance that a shadowy red-eyed figure that resembles Fatephinal would spawn in a random area (''except'' for the "safe haven" Dekstop, which would have probably been the least-eerie place to see her) and floats around aimlessly.

Even when he claims that he wants to kidnap Olivia, he can't even sum up the strength to so much as tap her, let alone carry her to a hideout or anything.

!! In General

After beating Ninthee, the Fountain will produce a huge surplus in Emazhes, who will also quickly extend the world so that it spans multiple planets. This is designated as the "Second Half" of a given run, which sees a huge increase in difficulty and mechanics. One of the first features of the Second Half is that the initial fourteen biomes would now have giant celestial-themed temples spring up, each led by a Charged Emazh that serves as a ''significantly'' stronger variation of the initial fourteen elements.

[[folder:Shout-Outs]]

* The game deals a lot to ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', which [[CrackFic (pretty much]][[InNameOnly indirectly)]] is one of its biggest inspirations:
** Alexia/Alexander is '''not''' intentionally named after show creator Alex Hirsch (Water says he just picked the first "A" names that came to his mind and stuck with it), but '''Force''' Forest takes that part of its name from '''Gravity''' Falls. There's no such pun of the name, though.
** One of the yellow-haired Charges is dealing with a manor being haunted by a ghost that can turn people in to pseudo-wood. Beth is '''[[LargeHam considerably]]''' different from Pacifica (or any Northwest, for that matter), but it's otherwise the same
** [[spoiler:During the minute you have control over the humans between Kristie's defeat and the proper Singularity fight, the "apocalypse" he initiates has him causing a giant cross of yellow-ish energy in the sky that resembles Weirdmageddon.]]
* ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' also gets its share:
** Water admits that everything from the battle with Ninthee onwards rips off the chapter structure of ''Isaac'' from the Mom battle onwards: You beat a boss, which gives you a number of options. Then there's another "standard" level (well, actually, anywhere from one to ''fifteen'' depending on how many, if any, of the Spatial Towers you go through before hopping to the Parallel Pocket) before that option actually determines where you'll go next. The order is a bit switched around here -- there's also a blue area associated with dying, but that must be visited ''after'' the "split," while in ''Isaac'' it's before. After all of that, you get to assemble a key that opens the door to a giant mega-boss, and from that is a battle against the grand TrueFinalBoss with the default form of a giant head that tests your skills against everything else in the game. There's also optional bosses based on the Sins, albeit super-boss versions of all of them. The greed one even has the largest butt, a reference to Ultra Greed's infamous ass.
** In ''Isaac'', the Polaroid and Negative both say "Fate chosen" when picked up. In ''Emazh In'', beating Ninthee -- giving you the four options to help in the ElementalRockPaperScissors for the mid-Second Half -- gives a message saying "Chose your fate." (Although you can get and craft the other three items in the same run, ''after'' you've beat their respective bosses ''Mega Man'' style.)
** The "Cihyimkay [CMYK] Tri-Beam" that Ninthee has a 1/3 chance of dropping is basically Brimstone from the game mixed with a triple shot. Lilith ''and'' Fatephinal can both drop similar, but more powerful items.
* [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} The closest the world has to a Santa Claus Emazh is robotic, someone who has extremely strict naughty/nice standards and obsessed with laser guns.]]
* Ninthee is basically a {{Cthulhumanoid}}. [[VideoGame/{{Terraria}} One of her pixel-images portrays her with her eyes having mouths, and her brain (which is just floating independantly) as having a heart with an eye inside it. She's also the landlady of the Lunar Sector of Infinity Amusement Park, making her a sort-of Moon Lady. Or, if you select HRT-9 to be the male Ninthan, a Moon Lord.]]

* AprilFoolsDay:
** The April 1st of 2027 update featured a new "Because You Guys Didn't Think the Original was Hard Enough" difficulty to Arena Mode, where every single enemy in every single wave was replaced with then-TrueFinalBoss Fatephinal. In addition, certain rooms would contain "DLC Boxes," which supposedly [[BribingYourWayToVictory charged a ridiculous amount of a new currency that required a comically large amount of real-life money]] (attempting to follow the link the game gives you just leads to a fake error message with Ninthee saying to come back tomorrow). Finally, the joke update added the option to have "Events!!!" which were a TakeThat at poorly-thought out random events that only really screw over the player (one such event was that you might ''randomly '''drop dead'''', in a game where your characters otherwise never die; another caused the game to fake-crash and then actually '''close itself''').



* InfinityPlusOneElement: ''Emazh In'' has so many of these that it might as well be the first game to have its own page to itself. To give a very brief, overly simple summary:
** Data (which is generally a unique hot pink, but can be solid or energy) is, bar none, the strongest element in the First Half. You only have access to it in the "last" (you're generally encouraged to do a pure biome, a dark biome, a light biome, and a toned biome, then Infinity Amusement Park -- you can go through the other biomes or even skip some, but the IAP is your end-of-First-Half target) area of the First Half. It gives ridiculously strong armor and can floor all fourteen of the original elements and all of their counterparts. Don't get too exited: Ninthee, the boss of this area, is drastically more difficult than any other First Half boss. [[SuspiciousVideoGameGenerosity You will]] ''need'' that Data. But then...
** The Second Half introduces stronger ''fifth'' space-themed variations of the original fourteen elements, but even those are curbed stomped by Parallelite. The stuff found in the Parallel Pocket, and its .
** Then there's the smaller circle of ElementalRockPaperScissors: the embodiments of the four "color varieties" themselves. Pureness, Shade, Tint, and Tone (the third is not to be confused with Light, one of the earliest elements you have access to). They're faux-"holy" or "unholy" elements, except spread out in a really weird four-way manner. Each of these could slightly beat what they're effective against, but completely stomp everything below them, including Data to a lesser extent. But then...
** Beating the main boss of each of those events nets you pieces to a drill-craft that sends you to Slowdeath Core. The place is practically an inversion of the Infinity Amusement Park, and thus its respective element is an inversion of Data -- Ignorance/Ignorite. Blue metal stuff that ''also'' shifts its appearance and phase.
** Beating Fatephinal, the Charged Emazh running the Slowdeath Core, ''finally'' grants access to Labostoep's inner buildings. (Labostoep itself could be explored, in brief, since the beginning of the game.) From there, you'll find the '''true''' Infinity +1 Element: [[spoiler:Originium. Apparently, it's a substance that has the power to cause entire big bangs, although for a number of obvious reasons you can't do this in the game.]]

* VariableMix: While ascending the inner StarScraper[=s=] of Labostoep, the theme goes through four variants that slowly turn it from a calm, "busy city theme" to a theme that would be more fitting for some grand godly battle.

!! Spooks

* The four Violet Biomes seem lovely at first. Then you notice that the centers of the flowers are actually blinking at you. And you realize that by being "meat-themed," the game doesn't mean "garden of animals," it means that the whole place is made out of some kind of weird purpleish meat stuff.

* Everything about Singularity, the TrueFinalBoss. Well, except his appearance -- he ''looks'' considerably non-threatening. Unless you count the fact that (and this isn't something the concept art portrays) he's roughly about fifteen-twenty feet tall. Oh yeah, he can assimilate the entire Emazh race, including Kristie and those that were barely created (via linking himself with the Fountain). The fact that '''Ninthee''' -- the same person who constantly teases people with divine powers, including the TopGod of them -- is afraid of him, despite being the person who friggin' created the thing.
** Perhaps the worst is the buildup. You've just beaten Kristie and could swear that this is ''finally'' the end of the game. Then a bunch of wires take her and pull her off to parts unknown, and Carlson and Lizzen are both stripped naked. You get the message: "Be prepared. The end is approaching." and the music completely cuts off. You spent the next solid sixty seconds with the option to explore anywhere else in the world, except everything's deserted and there is no music. Then you look up and notice the giant yellow X of energy in the sky, with faint numbers counting down the seconds. When it hits zero, you get Singularity's boss screen -- except instead of an even split, it's Carlson and Lizzen by themselves, facing away from the player, watching as several tentacles strike the ground and the monotonous-looking assimilated pile of Emazhes slowly fades into view.
*** The fact that the warning message that the Singularity battle is about to begin is a reference to a prank phone call from ''VideoGame/TheSims'' hardly makes this better:
** If you land an especially powerful attack on Singularity, there is a chance that he will, for a split second, shift his appearance from his "Gray Nepeta's Hat" look to a giant, pained skull. Considering who built him, this isn't surprising.
