At first seeming like a regular ol' newborn and a possible, well, ''hope'' for rebuilding the world, she turns out to grow way faster than a regular human being. By the time the gang's done with the first boss, on the Black Sea Arc, she's already a CreepyChild that silently follows the party everywhere. She disappears a bit after barring cameos, and soon enough she's at an "elderly" state where she effectively looks like a dried out husk that comes running at you at top speed and shrieks in such a way that would even make a [[Franchse/theLegendOfZelda ReDead]] shit itself.

* SurpriseCreepy:
** ''Ordinarily United'' is a romantic comedy (and no, not a horror story "pretending" to be a romantic comedy, it '''is''' fully considered one just with "mild" horror elements according to WordOfGod) features a pair of overpowered main characters, another "main"/major character that's a drunken idiot who likes making inappropriate pop culture references, a BigBad that's an utter pushover with an intentionally half-assed cliche BigRedDevil design, goofy villains, and it's literally a supernatural harem story. Oh yeah, that last part, the "haremettes" are HumanoidAbomination[=s=] from what's more-or-less hell itself that are inspired by a number of actual horror characters, like [[Literature/TheRing Sadako.]] And they're not ''exactly'' "moefied" either: their usual appearance gives them extremely sharp teeth, claws, intentionally uncanny and unnatural proportions, and they ''love'' putting on weird BodyHorror transformations to freak people out. Fan describes the Unitias as the offspring of [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls .GIFfany]] and '''[[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Alucard]],''' and that's a bit accurate. [[spoiler:Especially Unitia Origin's past self.]] Except unlike Alucard, the Unitias ''usually'' try to keep their kills quick and painless. When they don't... well, just ask Pantalite and how she slowly (but not in any detail and more-or-less "offscreen") gets mauled to death by weird fuzzy hairball... things the Unitias made, [[DisproportionateRetribution all for trying to put a pair of panties on Unitia Origin]] (well, she's also trying to wipe out humanity, but so are the other Demons and ''they'' end up with a "quick and painless" death). Or the Inventor, who met his end with an "ocean of maggots" that the Unitias all chipped in to make which is actually even squickier than the name makes it sound since it leaves out the other things. (It was meant to be an ironic punishment for them; he gropes people, so the Unitias thought he should "feel what it's like to have unwanted, slimy flesh touching him all over." [[LessDisturbingInContext By the time you read the part where his true colors are revealed, you would probably be rooting for him to get the OOM.]]) 90% of the time, the Unitias are meant to be seen as casual little dorks and act almost exactly like sit-com characters, but the few times where they ''genuinely'' hate someone mark the moments where OU suddenly swings from a 1 to an 11. And those are the heroes: once Last is introduced, [...] In summary one of the earlier chapters in the story mocks ClicheStorm creepypasta and has the guts to call "and then everything turned red and bloody" ''tame.'' Take that as a warning.
** ''Emazh In'' inverts this. The start plays off with Ninthee being framed as some ObviouslyEvil mad scientist-like figure that captures your player character, Mel, right from the start. When he tries to break out, she suddenly ambushes him and looks like she's about to ''flip...'' but then she calms herself down and instead sends him down in to a big, colorful city. Then we see Olivia's introduction, and any idea that the game might be purely horror with nothing intentionally comical is swiftly evaporated.



Or ShoutOut[=s/=]CounterpartComparison[=/=]{{Expy}}[=/=]HilariousInHindsight/etc/etc/etc that's just reaching too hard.

"You guys um OU is so obviously based on ''Neon Genesis Evangelion'' like uh there's two girls and one guy so already I'm questioning Water already copied Anno didn't he? Um, Carlson is a dude who is not like a testosterone-loaded Duke Nukem so by default that must make him Shinji. Uh, Stella is energetic so she's totally like Asuka, I mean her hair is brown and brown is like a ''kind of'' red if you squint so they're the same character. And Unitia One, like, has greenish hair but there's a tiny tint of blue so that means she and Rei are literally so identical. Oh what's that Water said he hasn't even seen the series and only plans to when he wants to add its characters to mega-crossover BHGHBAC? Well, some times he jokes and lies and he's a TrollingCreator so he's probably just trolling about that. Because 'trolling' means 'confirming something I don't want to see get confirmed.'"

* The entirety of the Unitias, and the general tone of ''Ordinarily United'' as a whole, can be summed up with the Unitias' reaction to [[TheDragon Last's]] sudden appearance over Hill Town: this ''gigantic'' island-sized "skeletonish angel" woman with ''four'' huge planets floating behind her and a number of BlackSpeech-chanting mouths and extra bodies growing out of her outer "bones" shows up floating above the center of the story's main town, spouting about "ruling over the physical, spiritual, and divine realms" and generally looking like something out of a fucking rapture. Stella is ''terrified'' and even Carlson is intimidated. Unitia One on the other hand dismisses this as "preachy nonsense" (even though the story has been heavily implying that [[CrystalDragonJesus "Greatism"]] is ''right''), casually approaches her, and tells her [[YouTalkTooMuch to stop talking.]] Unitia Two likewise complains that Last is ruining their sex, as "seeing a gigantic [[OxymoronicBeing angel-Demon]] talk about rocks really kills the mood." Once Last notices Carlson, she suddenly drops being formal and implicitely says he has a nice ass.



[[folder:Oh No, EI Edition]]

* Leather, again:
** Ninthee is by all means not just an invasive, manipulative, dangerous stalker {{yandere}}, but she's also an open {{sadist}} even ''before'' the events that served as her FreudianExcuse. While she isn't meant to be ''completely'' irrideemable, some players latch on to her very few positive quirks, act like they completely define her, while that the players and narrative itself that treats her as a dangerous stalker psycho-creep are just "overblowing" her negative qualities. A huge point of her character was to show that you can still be good to your own personal friends (Lithlaun and Fatephinal, who are ''hardly'' saints themselves) and still be a dangerous asshole to everyone else. When the trailer for a certain update/expansion shows her comitting actual murder up to and including killing [=NeedsMoreDeepWater=] and revealing that a lot of her own personal moveset when she's [[PromotedToPlayable playable]] consists of extremely brutal and painful attacks, there was outcry that

'''Mable the Typomonster/Pride Devil:''' Hey didn't you read ''Kids Fight the Trolls 2: Act 5 Vs Act 6''? Basically if you bring a lot of villains together they're not gonna always be best buds they're gonna try to kill each-other. In fact I hate my world's version of you.

Actually I would be extremely happy if that's the direction the sequel or whatever it is that's being teased will go because it means I don't have to write ''Emazh In'' if someone else "beats me to" the story of the huge array of color-coded and tint/shade sub-coded elements and stuff. Personally going by my guess I heavily doubt this thing could be compared to EI/RG at all, I'm picturing a "standard" horror game where ''maybe'' the gang from the last entry might cameo... but I don't really know. I don't want to try to predict shit because I've had a bad record with that: usually the opposite of what I'd like to see come true and if I try to predict something story ''wouldn't'' do as a "I want to do a fanwork that won't age badly when canon rolls by and is just an out-there crack concept" (this happened way too often with ''Steven Universe'', you wouldn't even believe. My idea for a Hyrule/Lorule-style dual world fan fic pretty much just predicted what Homeworld was already like)

There are two dead giveaways from the premise alone that ''Ordinarily United'' has LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters that warrant a split: that the villains are promised to be a group of one hundred ''and'' each of them will get at least some coverage; and that the main heroine doubles each day and at least fifteen of these "alternate Generations" get a good deal of screentime.

** Stella off-handedly refers to ''Anime/KillLaKill'' of all things as "tame." This happens long after we see what the general type of fiction by OU's 2060 (with a tiny bit of AlternateHistory) ''is,'' as it includes shows like ''Wavette'' that are considered children's entertainment. In fact, a running gag from that point is Stella pointing out that there's a kid's show that goes farther than anything that's "noted" for having a lot of [[FullyClothedNudity "nudity"]]

Even ignoring the age difference, which they don't, it's still obvious that the two of them aren't really compatable at all.

Urgh, the last thing I'd want if OU ever catches on is smartasses overblowing how "serious" and especially how "dark" it is and mocking people who "dare comit the crime" of liking naked demon women because they "don't understand."

If you don't care about the nudity and sex stuff that's fine, but for the Less Ones' sakes do '''not''' brag about it. Don't even act like it's a sign of a good writing that you "didn't even notice because you were invested in the story," hell if anything that might be a sign of poor writing. Specifically if you're going for fanservice in the first place but it just comes off as a distraction for the story instead of the story just being an excuse for the fanservice.

Oh what's that Water said he hasn't even seen the Less Ones' sakes do '''not''' brag series and only plans to when he wants to add its characters to mega-crossover BHGHBAC? Well, some times he jokes and lies and he's a TrollingCreator so he's probably just trolling about it. Don't even act like it's a sign of a good writing that you "didn't even notice because you were invested in the story," hell if anything that might be a sign of poor writing. Specifically if you're going for fanservice in the first place but it just comes off as a distraction for the story instead of the story just being an excuse for the fanservice.
that. Because 'trolling' means 'confirming something I don't want to see get confirmed.'"



Anyway, back to the story specifically and not just how everyone looks. Right. Carlson's stumbling upon the Unitias results in him getting "United" to them by accident. Instead of Uniting being a consensual, mutual agreement that's reversible any time and really only means that the human shares powers with the soul being they're tied to, in this case it's an accidental permanent ritual where he's stuck with her or visa-versa (they're stuck together and one of them is forcefully dragging the other around, that's all that matters)

From what I saw so far it was pretty much kind of a flash-in-the-pan thing. It suddenly was a thing on its page and became pretty popular quick and people were calling it like a sort of ''Homestuck'' spiritual successor... but then came 2018 and I haven't really seen anyone even so much as reference it, no long-standing memes... there probably ''is'' still a big fan group or something on Tumblr and/or Reddit that I just haven't looked around for but it's nowhere near the "it's everywhere you look on the Internet and everyone's throwing references to it in everything" level of popularity as some of those other things are.

I saw so far it was pretty much kind dunno

* Stella's debut in ''Extraordinarily'' is a B-plot
of her having to chase a flash-in-the-pan thing. It suddenly was a thing on its page and became pretty popular quick and runaway lawnmower.
* The MonsterOfTheWeek for "Movie Evening" is, just like Update 6.16 in IG, technology gone wrong. It's more-or-less an electronic-hijacking advertizement that will stop at ''nothing'' to get
people were calling it like to buy its product, and the whole thing is overblown as a sort of ''Homestuck'' spiritual successor... horror-esque scenario from Stella's perspective but then came 2018 a minor annoyance from Carlson's perspective. "Call right now and I haven't really seen anyone we ''WON'T'' charge you for watching this ad!"
** The sheer amount of loopholes and fines that the Ad tries to charge makes
even so much as reference it, no long-standing memes... there probably ''is'' still a big fan group or something on Tumblr and/or Reddit [[MoneyDearBoy Pay Peter]] say that I just haven't looked around for but it's nowhere near the "it's everywhere you look on the Internet and everyone's throwing references to it in everything" level of popularity as some of those other things are.even ''he'' thinks its attempts at getting its company payed is a little excessive.

* AudienceAlienatingPremise:
** ''The Dowsing Rod'' at first seems like a throwback to oddball SliceOfLife kid's cartoons in text form, set around the adventures of an imaginitive CloudCuckoolander boy and his friends as they muck around with an eponymous stick and see what kind of adventure of the week they can get in to. This is already bad enough since GPF had ''long'' since established himself as writing stories that are T-rated at lowest, full of swearing, nudity, and a bit of violence; something kid-friendly by him would turn off a number of ''Ordinarily United'' and ''Intriguing Group'' readers. Then in Chapter 4 it suddenly pulls a ''Anime/SamuraiFlamenco'' and [[spoiler:introduces a heavy story arc with '''real''' supernatural beings and a slightly darker tonal shift, although it's still light compared to some of his other work]]. People who were in to it because they wanted to see him try to pull off what's basically a "real world" kid's show in Fictionpress form would be turned off outright, readers who ''would'' want something that's [[spoiler:"less ''Clarence'' and more ''Over the Garden Wall''-ish kind of"]] (GPF's exact words) would not like getting through the intentionally lackluster first few chapters. And those who got spoiled and are expecting something new might not like how it follows the bare-base formula of GPF's "there's twelve color-coded enemies; fight them and best the BigBad at a city," especially since it still ''does'' live up to its K+ rating (although GPF, being GPF, stretches it a lot) so it feels like a "kiddy version" of ''Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group'', a story that predates it by years.
** [[StylisticSuck To a degree it's intentional,]] but the entire ''Unviewable Panties of Ishiko-Chan'' series gets hit with this. Although each installment is slightly ''better'' in this regard than the last. The premise of the first story is that a barely-18 highschooler (most of Fan's other protagonists are twenty-thirtysomethings, so this feels especially jarring) becomes obsessed with seeing the panties of an also-barely-18 highschooler who turns out to be a demon, and they both get wrapped up in a plot about fighting an underground Cold War-era communist band who takes over the United States of America. The sequel at first seems like it's a parody of TrappedInAnotherWorld stories, except while there are ''some'' elements the actual premise is more-or-less that you're sent to a dystopia version of the Mushroom Kingdom (well, a lawyer-friendly equivalent anyway), with some of the "Toads" being enemies working under the BigBad that regularly execute the citizens who refuse to directly serve under him, all with a lot of BlackComedy thrown throughout.
** ''Ordinarily United'' is a about a man who ends up being linked to a harem of naked, magical women from another dimension and the adventures that follow. If this sounds like a typical supernatural ecchi premise, well, Fan ''does'' genuinely think it's a romantic comedy, but a good chunk of the "comedy" consists of [[TakeThat bashing the ever-loving shit out of the "common" fanservice tropes that the author doesn't like.]] It's actually an extremely lengthy, character-driven and continuity-heavy web novel that comments on and deconstructs things like the abusive "tsundere" type (Yuullieke) or the "pervert with a heart of gold" character (Inventor) as side-plots. (The main plot, about fighting the Hundred Demons and building Carlson and Unitia One's relationship, is not as rooted on mocking tropes.) People who like these sort of things will get turned off by how harsh the story gets (''especially'' the Inventor), and people who don't would probably stay away from it as it plays fanservice straight in some points -- it just makes a point to ''not'' deliver that fanservice through glamorized sexual harassment or contrived clothing-destruction (apart from one part at the very beginning where ClothingDamage ''was'' pulled on Carlson thanks to an oddly-specific attack from Dagger, the first-seen MonsterOfTheWeek). Even someone who ''does'' want "fanservice handled slightly differently" will have to stomach through the occasional BodyHorror the Unitias pull off, which starts with one of them turning her eyes in to mouths for a split second with zero warning and only gets worse from there. Not to mention that the biggest fanservice providers are lanky, almost Slender Man-proportioned beings with sharp claws, MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily, and somewhat ''too'' large breasts. The fact that the most fanservice-y non-Unitia character (Stella) is chubby might also alienate some too.
** ''Bobby Hill Gets Hit by a Car''. The title is bad enough, although the actual car hitting happens very late in to the story and it's not nearly as graphic as one might expect. What makes matters worse is that this



* StrictlyFormula:
** Many of his original fiction -- and even a number of his fanworks, namely ''run:gifocalypse'', have the same general template story: set in a world similar to ours on the surface but has loads of crazy shit within it, usually with some AlternateHistory thrown in. There tends to be ''at least'' twelve of ''something:'' [[QuirkyMinibossSquad enemy-officers working under BLOODSHOT]] in ''Steve Buhvillen's Intriuing Group'' (which is twelve), Charged Emazhes making up the "Rainbow Ring" in ''Emazh In'' (fourteen, there's two more in addition to the actual spectrum of colors; possibly even more if one counts their light/dark/mechanical/nature counterparts), major teammates in both ''361 Striking Degrees'' and the ''5x5'' series, etc. If there is a gang of twelve+, then usually twelve of them fall under a color-coding based on the RGB spectrum, with each member being a different hue exactly 30 degrees apart from one-another: red, orange, yellow, chartreuse, green, aqua[[note]]Originally Fan kept true to what Wikipedia said and called it "spring green," but he wanted to make the color "feel more distinct"[[/note]], cyan, azure, blue, violet, magenta, and rose. Extra colors tend to include black, white, and possibly even gray or a "wildcard" color; if there is a multiple of twelve involved, expect additional colors to be ones ''between'' the red-to-rose spectrum. With ''Intriguing Group'' and ''Smokedrifle Tower'' being two of the few exceptions, they also follow his ColorCodedElements system and have a hard-structured associated biome[[note]]going by color/element/biome: red/fire/volcanic region; orange/earth/canyon; yellow/electricity/desert; chartreuse/light/some general mythical area, usually a "floating island(s)" of sort with yellow-green grass, factory optional; green/plants/forest; aqua/wind/valley with blue-green grass; cyan/"soap"/mountain spring or possibly just a hot spring building; azure/sound/swamp (if it's set on Earth, there's usually some blue flowers or other features so that it fits with the coloration); blue/water/ocean, beach, etc; violet/paint/jungle (again, with flowers to help color it); magenta/poison/caves; and rose/meat/either a waterfall-associated pasture with several flowers or just an outright WombLevel[[/note]]. Hero is initially unaware or barely-aware of this sort of thing even if they are part of that rainbow, but then finds out. They start in a populated area ranging from a small rural town (Gravity Falls town in ''run:gifocalypse'') to either the color-coded biomes outlined in the note, but whether or not their journey takes them across the color-coded areas a forest (usually near the beginning), desert, tundra, ocean, mountain, and lava zone are common. If the color-coding isn't used, then the main regions may be based loosely on ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', with there being a forest, volcano, lake/ocean, desert, "dark zone," and "light zone" corresponding with the Sages (if the "Sages" are used as inspiration then it's always in that order; Forest first, Spirit before Shadow). After going through "natural" locations, there may be some "less-natural" settings like places with a holy/unholy theme, but towards the end the final area is almost always a city of sorts associated with space (or floating high in the air, or both) that's even bigger, fancier, and far more futuristic than the city the hero starts out in. (Planet Negation Girl to Gravity Falls town in ''run:gifocalypse''; Buhvillen City to Brimcity in ''Intriguing Group''; Circle Land to Hill Town in ''Ordinarily United''; Labostoep to Dekstop in ''Emazh In''; etc). If not a city, then a castle of sorts (''Unviewable 2'' and both ''5x5'' installments). Artificial humanoids usually play a plot and are usually contrasted with at least one human character (''5x5'' and ''_Roy'' are the closest he came to writing a story set [[AfterTheEnd after human extinction]]; in the former it's ambiguous as to whether or not Lansord is the last human left alive and in the latter )
** He has a small handful of rules for his ''Homestuck'' fanworks. Namely, either Gamzee or Aradia is always the first one to die off while Nepeta "can't" die unless ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' ends (in real life) before Fan's done with the story. (The former rule is reflected in ''Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group''; the BLOODSHOT officers have the same RGB color theme GPF usually uses and that can also be found with the trolls; Darkhorse corresponds to Aradia's "hue" and he's the first of them to die.)

Speaking of designs, the Hundred Demons would almost all look almost completely human, with their main differences being what kind of armor they wear. The men are buff sword-users/gun-users with little variation, and the women (and instead of forty-nine, not counting UO, of them being women it's a smaller number like... 20ish at the most) are all cookie-cutter whip-using dominatrix archetypes who basically talk like Whipped Wanda but unironically and without Stella/the Unitias commenting that she sounds a bit cheesy.

cheesy. Maybe Scale Breath has the power to ''turn in to'' a dragon. Maybe Swinging Blade turns in to a fox -- actually, no, this version of SB is that "his only power is that he's good with a sword" thing played straight. Assily Blast is removed/replaced entirely, although you know what maybe that's not such a bad thing.

Anyway, back to the story specifically and not just how everyone looks. Right. Carlson's stumbling upon the Unitias results in him getting "United" to them by accident. Instead of Uniting being a consensual, mutual agreement that's reversible any time and really only means that the human shares powers with the soul being they're tied to, in this case it's an accidental permanent ritual where he's stuck with her or visa-versa (they're stuck together and one of them is forcefully dragging the other around, that's all that matters)

----

* The entirety of the Unitias, and the general tone of ''Ordinarily United'' as a whole, can be summed up with the Unitias' reaction to [[TheDragon Last's]] sudden appearance over Hill Town: this ''gigantic'' island-sized "skeletonish angel" woman with ''four'' huge planets floating behind her and a number of BlackSpeech-chanting mouths and extra bodies growing out of her outer "bones" shows up floating above the center of the story's main town, spouting about "ruling over the physical, spiritual, and divine realms" and generally looking like something out of a fucking rapture. Stella is ''terrified'' and even Carlson is intimidated. Unitia One on the other hand dismisses this as "preachy nonsense" (even though the story has been heavily implying that [[CrystalDragonJesus "Greatism"]] is ''right''), casually approaches her, and tells her [[YouTalkTooMuch to stop talking.]] Unitia Two likewise complains that Last is ruining their sex, as "seeing a gigantic [[OxymoronicBeing angel-Demon]] talk about rocks really kills the mood." Once Last notices Carlson, she suddenly drops being formal and implicitely says he has a nice ass.



No, I'm taking a page from ''VideoGame/SpookysJumpScareMansion''. Ask me repeatedly to put a whatever-based thing in enough times annoyingly and I will do it... but make it suck raw ass out of sheer spite.

In between every level, like ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' there's a board and a figure of the party being moved around. At the beginning I wanted to imply Soos was the one moving the pieces, you can tell from the arm. By the end when his is pulled to space it's instead [=.GIFfany=]'s arm. In the crossover part it's the "guide companions" per-story instead: "Journal 3" (or any of the Journals) puts Mabel's piece inside Lagann and adds the shades, but it's Mab'''le''' (obvious, the arm in that cutscene has that Anti-Spiral chalk look) that brings it to the galaxy thing for the showdown.

After spending most, if not the ''entire'' game (depending on secret bosses, if the player picked the other two first, etc) just fighting [=.GIFfany=] variants, this is a surprisingly badass and over-the-top change of pace.

[[folder:Let's get back to RG. Or, forward? Since this is the 2018 rewrite]]

''run:gifocalypse'' was a writing experiment to see how far the author can deliberately overblow and overwrite a [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime "Stakes"-inspired]] story to ''Gravity Falls'', except with various element-themed copies of [=.GIFfany=] rather than vampires, while still trying to avoid a complete InNameOnly territory.

Due to the serial, bizarre, and freely-available on fanfiction.net nature of ''run:gifocalypse'', '''all spoilers for either version are unmarked on this page. All spoilers for pretty much the entirety of canon are likewise unmarked.'''

(2018 remake)

!! Prologue (Chapters 1-2) and Arc 1 (Chapters 3-10)

* The entirety of ''run:gifocalypse'' (well, the reboot anyway) can be summed up right when Professor Rose is about to attack. After Mabel, Wendy, and Dipper keep pushing her around and demanding that she gives them the key-card out of Gravity Falls and to Kathody's domain, she has enough and reveals her powers. She does the usual [=.GIFfany=]-possession thing... [[WhamShot except instead of jumping in to an electronic, she leaps in to the gigantic tree at the end of her garden area.]] With a ton of green lightning (the story emphasizes that it's not [=.GIFfany=]'s canonical blue -- there's a reason for that) coming in to and linking the other trees, she suddenly grows the thing out to form a four-story tall, colossal twisting tree monster that roars at the entire party. Rose finally gets her own ''boss'' version of the MookDebutCutscene[=s=] added in the remake, with an '''alarmingly''' loud and ominous bell chime. (The higher-ranking and more powerful the [=.GIFfany=] copy, the louder her school bell sound effect is.) Scared as all hell, the party of four all hold on to their weapons nervously. It dawns on the reader that even though the Mystery Shack team is facing against this colossal botanical monster that's looming over the entire time, they're still going to take it on in a fight anyway ''and win.'' They do, and the fight's climax involves a motorcycle jump over the cliffs overlooking Gravity Falls. And this is the first "boss battle." Of what's officially considered the '''prologue.''' There's a good reason why GPF describes this as "''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' if it was written by Creator/PlatinumGames."
* Kathody one-ups Rose's Main Possession by ''ripping open a portal to Hell and summoning her personal ectoplasmic ghost minion.'' And this happens immediately after a fakeout implying that her fight is just going to be left at her possessing another [[VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon staircase.]]

!! Arc 2 (Chapters 11-18)

* Making her re...debut-ish '''way''' earlier than schedule, and one of the few twists that's even unexpected to people who read the entirety of the old version (as this is basically the same story beat-for-beat as the old version, just with more flash and less plot holes/inconsistencies), Melody suddenly shows up out of the absolute middle of nowhere from the end of Chapter 11. Turns out Natalie wanted to kidnap her, she managed to escape, and she ran over to Bubbles's place for refuge. [[AscendedExtra And she's a mainstay here.]]
* All four of the professors of Arc 2 are a tight-knit group called the "Four Friends," copies who actually knew a little of one-another prior to the Gifocalypse (and were basically the ''only'' professors that extensively knew each-other pre-Gifocalypse except Burnda and Burrda). In contrast to that, the Arc 1 professors are four misfits with clashing ideals who do not get along together at all, even when DefeatMeansFriendship settles in. Arc 2's climax has ''Dian'' [[ExtremeDoormat of all people]] convincing Bubbles, Leona, and Sonia that they should all just band together and attack the group at once and at full steam. Well, Kathody, Searah, Sandy, and Cardia (Rose was doing her own thing at the time, putting it mildly) object strongly to that. The result is an all-out ''four versus four battle.'' And since all eight of the professors lost their main possessions previously, they end up possessing completely new things to keep things fresh. A ghostly brain thing similar to the creature from "The Inconveniencing," a [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure Chaos-like]] water dragon, a huge pile of rocks, and a giant fleshy hand go up against a sprawling pipe-monster, a rainbow blob of paint, an evil harp monster, and some massive acid-spewing mushroom... spider... smoke thing, all in an ocean of poison. No wait, the "ocean's" just water after Searah's attack there. No, mud. No, drain cleaner. No, there's also ink, blood, ''ectoplasm,'' and what could only be described as '''liquid sound''' (also, tea) splashing around in there too. The entire fight is completely batfuck even by RG standards and blows the previous arc finale (another humans vs professor, in this case there's just one professor who "just" happens to be possessing a dragon) out of the water, and that's before the Four ''New'' Friends start kind of losing so the four humans jump on them and loosely guide/comand them to victory.

!! Arc 3 (Chapters 19-26)

* In the 2015 version, the fight against Shannon just consisted of the gang running away from her and hiding until she happened to break in and notice the Glitches, piece together that withdrawl from her own mirrors caused it, and then stopping the fight as she realized the whole thing was a misunderstanding. In this version, the group -- using the tools they've collected from the previous domains -- actually ''do'' get to fight Shannon. In her colossal, twisting reflection form. The whole setting also provides a nice backdrop; most of the previous battle areas were bright, sunny, colorful domains. Domain 11 technically is brightly-colored, but the (setting) sun's blocked out by the smoke coming out from the cooling towers, and the whole place is chaotic thanks to the copies losing their mirrors in-mass and becoming Glitches as a result. Granted, the fight still ends with Shannon just no longer attacking when she realizes that there's been a misunderstanding, but this time seeing the Glitched copies does ''not'' calm her down -- she simply assumes that the ''Pines'' are the reason to blame for that.
* Originally, there was some HandWave[=d=] rule in that settings that have been "corrupted" by Glitch copies could just naturally fix themselves on their own. While that's still the case, Shannon's healing light is able to slightly repair it. This means Shannon has the power to ''fix reality itself.'' And, albeit by accident, she has the tools to make copies ''break'' reality in the first place.
*

!! Endgame (Chapters 27-End)

* The sheer fact that Soos was even willing to take on the Rift-infused, godlike-[=.GIFfany=] with the power to rip holes across the fabric of spacetime.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Lines Again]]

!! ''The Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage''

* Not-Bill, a failed attempt at cloning Bill by Gideon and a parody of "humanized lover-Bill" from the fandom. [[NoYay He immediately becomes fixated on Dipper]] despite being an older teenager at the youngest (though the text confirms that "Not-Bill" is biologically 16, he looks considerably older and the webcomic version draws him as being even taller than Wendy), kidnaps him, and attempts to force him in to a wedding. At one point he outright sticks his tongue in Dipper's ear and, because of portal magic he made, the tongue comes out the other ear, making it look like he goes through Dipper's whole head. The ''real'' Bill naturally does not let this fly, claiming that "Not-Bill" is ruining his image to the point where he openly teams up with the gang just to get rid of him. Everything about Not-Bill is so over-the-top

!! ''Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group''

* All flashbacks about Steve's life being raised by [[BigBad The Blood King.]] The Blood King ''is'' a horrible, abusive piece of shit, but from the beginning of the story alone we see him sic a KillerRobot on him for laughs, remote-controls a random car to crash for the hell of it, and for Steve's thirteenth birthday Blood King punches him so hard that he's sent flying off the entire floating city, with the intent to kill him if not for the people of the Southern Forest coming to his rescue. Blood King is terrible but it's hard to take him seriously when his sadism is just presented in such a blatant, card-carrying manner.
* Everything about [[BigBadWannabe Tanker.]] She's a fourteen year old girl with a design that deliberately tries to slightly resemble [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse Peridot's,]] who wears a slightly-oversized military outfit and is prone to CatSmile[=s=]. Sounds like a standard-grade adorable oddball, right? No, she's also the biggest psycho BloodKnight in the entire story (gleefully throwing the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil out the window), gleefully slaughtering people left and right while also chain-smoking ''multiple'' cigars at once and somehow having one of the biggest swear counts out of everyone in the whole story despite her low amount of screentime. In fact, after writing the main chapter focused on her battle, Fan realized that there were some plans that he forgot to put in, so he basically went back there and made her even ''worse'' when he was about to start Volume 3. Her bio mentions that she loves forcing her own soldiers to play Russian roulette for her own entertainment and after said edits to the Volume 2 finale she's shown killing her various mooks for ''agreeing'' with her. Even her death involves a grown woman punching her with hyper-strength that makes her head fly off and her body outright ''explode,'' and her head spins around a bit before exploding in a chartreuse fireball because of the detonation chips planted in to every BLOODSHOT officer's head.
* Nosfo's aunt Villtennia,
* Master Master is the "token BDSM-themed character with a whip that says suggestive things" for IG. Except ''he's'' an elderly man (he's supposed to be ''ninety'' years old and just barely looks younger) constantly bragging about his sex life with people roughly as old as he is and goes in to loving detail about sagging breasts and gray hair. Even Hammithan, the closest the Intriguing Group has to a "perverted" character who doesn't really judge very much, is {{squicked}} out by the constant old man ass whenever he shows up. The out-universe reason for his old age is that he's ''also'' a parody of the "wise master" tropes, so he makes sexual puns about training people for martial arts and the like. [[BewareTheSillyOnes Oh yeah and then there's the tiny detail of his main superpower being that he can run literally faster than the speed of light.]]

!! ''Ordinarily United''

* Inspired by ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan'', the initial premise was to see if Fan could write a group of heroes (Carlson and the infinitely-doubling Unitias) so overpowered that their adventures wrap back around the being entertaining. [[spoiler:Early on, he somewhat dropped the rule -- Chapter 3 introduces a ''possible'' villain who could put up a fight with Carlson, but he gets killed out of his own clumsiness. Chapter 6 has two more villains that give Carlson an even fight, and then Chapter 7 has someone who can KO Carlson outright and fights pretty well against 2-3 Unitias (although he's utterly curb-stomped when the whole army of thousands at the time rushes after him). As the story goes on, thanks to the Shiny Rocks, more and more enemies show up that can ]]
* The Unitias gleefully ram the line up the ass of an eldritch monster from hell,
** When Unitia One/Origin is first introduced, she appears to have GodivaHair even though this is a text-only story. You know, to at least cover the issue or answer the question of how this naked woman-- [[SubvertedTrope The story does not even get to describe it for a sentence before she then gets annoyed and brushes it away,]] and the text gives a ''very'' in-depth description of her completely uncovered rack after that (hell, Fan even felt the need to tone it ''up'' and rewrote just that part to expand it a little). Before that, the first part about her that gets its introduction is her ass. Basically, she's so overly MazeGaze-[=y=] by that part that the web novel intentionally describes her face ''last.'' Keep in mind that this is a HumanoidAbomination that loves to intentionally throw on NightmareFace[=s=] to traumatize the hell out of people she really hates.
* ''The High-Splash Adventures of Wavette'' is an alleged children's show that features an absolute overkill of suggestive fanservice that would make a lot of actual ecchi look tame by comparison. [Blah blah blah] Another thing is that since this is apparently considered [=TV-Y7=] content in-universe, one must wonder what teen-aimed or mature shows are like, since most of what we see is either reruns of "old" actual shows like ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'', nature documentaries, GPF's other stories like ''Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group'' (which apparently ''is'' a TV-'''14''' soley because of the violence), or other kid-friendly works. Lampshaded in a non-canon crossover with the ''Unviewable'' series, where Taro and company are utterly freaking out over Hoodieath's lack-of-pants. (And Hoodieath has one of the most ''covering'' outfits in the whole story.) Stella's reaction is to laugh, and when the topic of what anime Taro likes to watch comes up, Stella laughs harder at the idea of him calling it "mature" and says that her world has a children's show that goes farther than "just" having innuendo and suggestive imagry.
* Jackass wannabe mass-murder comitting arson? Not funny by itself. Said guy being a hammy fox-man who intentionally looks like he came straight out of [=DeviantART=], and the house owner's reaction being to rush in just to make sure her dirty magazines are okay?
* Cryipasto's [[EpicFail "attack"]] is a huge TakeThat at uninspired and badly-written {{creepypasta}}, but the "pasta" itself falls under this. He teams up with an illusion-casting Demon (appropriately named Eellooshinist) to give Carlson and the Unitias the illusion that the episode of the aformentioned ''Wavette'' they're watching would start out "innocent" (by ''Wavette'' standards) but then slowly descend in to a horror show. Despite the intent being that it would take roughly '''two hours''' for things to set in, Carlson recognizes that something is off within roughly five minutes when Wavette's eyes turn red and the ocean turns to blood for a split second. Pissed off, Cryipasto starts yelling at them through illusion-Wavette and then goes on to say that he planned to murder the other characters. Cue him using Wavette's arms to casually guesture towards ''Zaeppil's corpse in a pile of blood'' with a fly buzzing around it, with Frank making a reference to that scene from ''Film/Troll2''.
* Assily Blast is what happens when one takes ToiletHumor to a ridiculous, over-dramatic degree and personify it as an '''utter intelligent badass'''. Normally a Demon who resembles
* Everything about Hoodieath's character: she's someone who wanders around in just a hoodie and pair of panties who yells [[NoIndoorVoice at top volume]] about how evil and horrible nudity censorship is in fiction, while simultaneously acting like violence in fiction is something universally-considered kid-friendly. She's sent fake severed arms to the mayor to try (and fail) to get her point across, she keeps coming up with weird groups to blame (including the fast food industry of all things)
* The Inventor is so [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace absurdly creepy]] that he wraps around to being nearly impossible to take seriously -- it helps that he quickly lands himself on the bad side of the Unitias, so you know karma's a-comin' after him eventually. He's apparently the director of a show, and from what we hear of it it's an overly-disgusting enslavement-fest. The credits of it list ''thirty-two people'' cast as [[DropDeadGorgeous "Sexy Corpse]] [[ILoveTheDead #[Number]."]] When he tells Stella that he personally wants to make her his love slave, she laughs it off and says she's not sure whether to call the cops, the ambulance after she's done kicking his ass, or the fire department for... some reason. Then there's his fate: [[spoiler:Someone getting forced in to an ocean of maggots and tentacles would normally be pretty bad, but considering what he's done up to and including trying to ''kill'' Carlson and Unitia One (and coming pretty close to killing Carlson), he completely deserves it. Not only that, but he keeps his usual Wrong Genre Savvy cockiness up even when Unitia One punches him to the moon... but when he sees the ball of Body Horror that the Unitias prepared for him as punishment for his groping, he finally drops his smug attitude, shouts "FUCK THAT SHIT!" and flails around hopelessly while the other Unitias laugh at him.]]
* Master Master's OU-counterpart is PETAL SQUAD FORCE, a group of fifteen HornyDevil[=s=] that enjoy openly making out with one-another right in front of everyone. They also look almost like palette swaps of ''[[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill Hank Hill,]]'' who is middle-aged and generally shies away from sex to the point where he does not even feel that comfortable talking about the word "love" with his own wife. The idea of someone like Hank being oversexualized fifteen times over, to the point where their FusionDance is a literal orgy, is just so ''wrong'' that it loops back to being... still wrong.

!! ''The Unviewable Panties of Ishiko-Chan'' Trilogy

[[AC:Unviewable 1/General]]
* Taro's attempts to see Ishiko's emponymous "unviewable" undergarments start out as genuine harassment. As he gets increasingly frustrated, he does things like ''create an entire tornado'' to attack the school just to try to blow Ishiko's skirt up, and he outright tries his hand at summoning a demon-thing.

[[AC:Unviewable 2: Another "Another World" Story]]
* The entire premise of the Flaos is a DeconstructiveParody of the "generic, identical Toads" in the [=3DS=]/Wii U era of ''Mario'' games. While ''Odyssey'' considerably mitigated those complaints with several completely new friendly NPC species, the Toads themselves still follow the same general appearance while they had been more varried in past games. So, this game takes the idea that the evil Flao King has imprisoned all women (except Flaoette), children, Flaos with petals that aren't of the standard red-yellow-green-blue-purple colors, Flaos that have so much as different body types, and "mutants." Unlike Toads, who are all good, the Flaos are cleanly divided in to the cowering friendly [=NPCs=] and the evil soldiers that willingly serve under the King; the latter aren't really encountered as common enemies (although five of them that have been beefed up via the Red Gem do make up most of the bosses) until the end of the game. In the final area, you're basically mass-murdering evil not-Toads in military uniforms armed with guns.
* Every single adult female Flao has ludicrous GagBoobs but otherwise has the exact same simplistic "stick figure look" as the rest of the species (so they're not exactly CuteMonsterGirl[=s=] and it's not meant to be sexy). In Snowfall Tundra, you can find a mother telling her daughter that she's "destined to have agonizing back pain in the years to come," and describes it like it's apocalyptically bad. Complete with going over and invoking ol' [[FourHorsemenOfTheApocalypse Famine, Pestilence, War, and Death.]]
* Mount. Tan has a sign in the far northwest portion warning the player about toilet humor to the west, but that it's the only toilet humor use in the whole game. Over there is a long walkway leading to a cliff with a toilet sticking off the edge in an extremely unsafe manner. The music that plays here is a full-arranged piano piece about the singer having diarrhea, and the song just escalates in to being about her apparently shitting out some kind of tiny EldritchAbomination. When at the toilet, Taro will gladly leap on it, pull down his pants, and start crapping in front of everybody, with no-one except [[OnlySaneMan Margaret]] reacting accordingly. Or, Ishiko will leap on herself, [[spoiler:which will also happen if you visit the place after Taro is killed by the Flao King]]. Moreso is that there is a really long pipe extending from the base of the toilet and going south. You can follow it through the first three areas of the game (it twists and loops around a ''lot''), eventually seeing that it leads to a hidden "mud lake" in Tox-Tick Woods. That child Flaos are unknowingly playing in. '''[[{{Squick}} Yeah.]]'''
* The entire Haunted House part of Handy Graveyard, where Purple Bufflao tries to use blatantly fake "corpses" of Flaos to make the place scary. In one room, there's one dummy lying out with holes in it and stuffing recolored red, which actually manages to get a surprised reaction out of Taro. The room immediately after that is a long hall full of fake corpses, with Taro saying "Okay, now you're just being a dick."
* The show that "the world is more brutal" in Hard Mode, Flao Town is a perpetually-burning wasteland where the inns and shops are replaced with cowering Flaos hiding under boxes. The guy who explains Generica to the party is now being used as a footrest by one of the Flao Soldiers that acted as enemies in Normal Mode.

extremely happy if that's in more than one arc the direction the sequel or whatever it is that's being teased will go because it means I don't have to write ''Emazh In'' if someone else "beats me to" the story of the huge array of color-coded and they all get killed tint/shade sub-coded elements and stuff.

It suddenly was a thing on its page and became pretty popular quick and people were calling it like a sort of ''Homestuck'' spiritual successor... but then came 2018 and I haven't really seen anyone even so much as reference it, no long-standing memes... there probably ''is'' still a big fan group or female, Ninthee somehow (intentionally) comes off as more fanservice-y than any of them despite being one of the few major Emazhes something on Tumblr and/or Reddit that goes I just haven't looked around fully clothed.

* The main focus of ''Desert City'' is the alternate counterparts of Steven and Connie, specifically how the various alternate world circumstances left them as ''enemies'' rather than friends, with the "main" Steven trying to desperately get them to end their war and see things through. Some instead like the alternate counterparts of the Crystal Gems and wish they get more focus, in addition to wondering what the "dry" versions of the other Gem characters would be like despite GPF's ShrugOfGod to all of them (it helps that the story was planned before even Lapis' debut, and the author thought the show was not going to go in the direction of an escalating myth arc). On the other hand, you have those that unironically like the "bleaker" and "edgier" world, and are [[spoiler:disappointed when the story has a happy ending with the "Desertverse" and "Beachverse" coming together, complete with the tree-growing meaning that ]]
* ''Escape From Fanservice Island: Redover Rewrite Remade and Reincarnated With Horse Armor DLC'' (actual full title):
** While a major purpose of the fic was to give canon's various Monsters of the Week a great deal of screentime as they're stuck on an island with Stan, Ford, Soos, Melody, and the Henchmaniacs serving as the villains, it's instead gathered more of a Henchmaniac fan-readership than a MOTW fan-readership.
** Some who sat through ''Total Zeksmit'' or ''Total Drama World Tour Rewrite'' and did not like GPF's portrayal of Ezekiel as a SpotlightStealingSquad compared to canon's major characters would read EFFIRRRR because Ezekiel has ''both'' an expy-character, Zeskit the Troll, who gets killed off one chapter after his introduction; and '''Ezekiel himself''' makes a cameo later on just to get hit (non-fatally) by debris. A fan fic pulling the TakeThatScrappy card is one thing, but said fan fic's "Scrappy" being that way in part due to writing from the ''same author?''

!! Best (This is embarassing)

* ''Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group'':
** Okay, the premise is about a magma-themed faux-[[NubileSavage cavewoman-like]] person who doesn't like clothes very much and fights against... um, her home society's new policy on clothing or something? And her powers are... um...
** There's also Witchita, the demon from hell that's ''technically'' covered everywhere but half her face and her arms with hair, yet is still nude under it, and the hair does blow away on occasion. It helps that she's the closest of BLOODSHOT to a fanservice character, since the rest of the female members consist of: a young teenager with an obsession with violence that licks Poixer's blood at one point; an identity-stealing hacker that stays fully clothed for the whole duration of the main story; a fifty-foot tall AxCrazy wolf-like woman that throws enough NightmareFace[=s=] so that even people who ''are'' part of the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom would be turned off; and an ''extremely'' hostile "idol singer" that blows the brains out of several people onscreen. For male members there's at least Xunter, Coward's Mask (if you don't mind the mullet),
* ''Emazh In'' summaries tend to be sorted in to one of three categories: those that go on about the {{Stripperiffic}} outfits of the Emazhes (with almost ''all'' of the major Charges -- and several who aren't -- even going around topless), how Ninthee somehow manages to feel more sexual than them despite being fully clothed, or both.
* If someone's not trying to "sell" the ''Unviewable Panties of Ishiko-Chan'' with the utter MindScrew that its latter two installments pull with their MultipleEndings, it's one of two things: the {{Stripperiffic}} CatGirl demon women who make [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Felicia]] look modest in comparison, or their SpearCounterpart[=s=] '''finally''' introduced in the third installment that love running around shirtless with extremely low-riding pants who are ''also'' subjected to the same fanservice scenarios that GPF normally avoids writing otherwise (he only did it with this in the first place to make fun of it, which to some degree [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing back]][[MisaimedFandom fired]]). Also, the story becomes an ArtifactTitle by the end of the first installment: at no point does it ever have a problem with PantyShot[=s=] of the rest of the cast, just Ishiko, and even then that's dropped at the end when she deactivates her in-universe MagicSkirt and flashes Taro. With a deliberately over-the-top description of her undergarments.

* As with Mudvin before and [=.GIFfany=] [[FanFic/UltimateChaoticMysteriousDarkPower (twi]][[FanFic/BobbyHillGetsHitByACar ce!)]], the "Mysterious Rival," Lilith Sahtabb, [some other examples] and technically Ezekiel after, OU has its own Creator/PlatinumGames-inspired MirrorBoss. In this case, Ninjssassin, who fights Carlson exactly four times. Each time just escalates from the last, getting way more batshit as they go on:
** The first battle takes place on Hill Town Outskirts, where she carves part of a cliff in to an arena as it slides down the side of the fucking enormous canyon. Carlson fights what is technically his first-ever ''real'' challenge that actually wants to kill him, while she quickly blasts away what little was already in the arena by first destroying most of the trees and then with her and Carlson's strike to one-another blowing the whole thing in half. From there, Carlson ''surfs'' on the chunk of rock to get after where Ninjssassin was at, and they conclude the fight on a tiny, spinning rocky platform that Carlson, less than five minutes ago, had his first bizarre conversation with the Eighth Circle. There's a good reason why, after finally witnessing the ''real'' power of a Shiny Rock after an... underwhelming "demonstration" by Swinging Blade, he charges in to the coliseum grinning as he prepares to fight Blazing Fast.
** In the second fight, Ninjssassin ambushes him at the peak of Cooper Domain's mountain, slicing off a colossal chunk of ice and using it as a boat going down an increasingly-fast river. Their battle, again on a moving platform, which takes them in to a cave, dwon in a lake, and eventually to a volcanic lava chamber. Oh yeah, and last fight, neither of them knew how to summon "familiars" from their Rock/boomerang; Carlson did not discover that unil the battle with Blazing Fast immediately after. Here? Well, Carlson tries making his "phantom horse," just to find out that Ninjssassin can make her own HellHorse too. The two phantom horses clash a ''lot'' in the background while Carlson and Ninjssassin fight on a shrinking ice platform that goes from a peak overlooking a giant jungle down to the depths of the Earth.
** The third fight, in Hellguy Village, starts out on what's basically a "sky train" that Ninjssassin derails.
** And ''then'' there's the fourth fight. [[spoiler:Last was just killed and her planets were shattered; Ninjssassin, one of the final three members of the Hundred Demons left alive, ]]

[[folder:Difficult]]

!! ''i can't draw'' -- "Hard Mode"

Near the beginning of the game, Tamiko will ask to give a "generic name, possibly for a pet, that will be important later." Entering "[=HardMD=]" for this name will start Hard Mode. (If you pick "[=EasyMD=]," however, you will get "Easy Mode." Unlike Hard Mode, which is a full alternate playthrough with some exclusive paths, Easy Mode is a simple joke game that is impossible to lose with only one real "battle," a fight against the Flao King where he instantly surrenders.)

* Usually, but not always (this is deliberate), enemies are replaced with stronger variations. Since their regular counterparts may remain, this can be considered doubling the amount of enemies in each region from five on average to ten on average (with the exceptions of Snowfall Tundra and Mount. Tan, which already have more enemies).
** The main bosses are the same "characters," but are replaced
* Saving at any time is disabled (places that normally disable menu saving, like the Thirty-Trial Test, will have the warning note remove to reflect this). Instead, the player must save at the former Healing Spots. They still fully heal the party, but they are single-use; they will "shatter" after being opened, regardless of whether or not the player actually saves. The mechanic also shows up in the Thirty-Trial Test in Normal Mode, where each of the three floors has a one-use savepoint so that the player does not have to clear all thirty battles in one sitting. This is meant to discourage save scumming.
** A new "Healing Spot" is added in Flao Town that is completely unbreakable. However, it simply saves the game, it does not heal the party. This is for the convenience of a player who needs to save in an emergency.
* Permadeath is no longer exclusive to just three final bosses (Ed's House Crush move, Monika's File Deletion that she will use after five turns, and Flao King's Execution (only used if Taro is picked to live in Mount. Tan)), Taro's potential death in the Mount. Tan choice, or self-sacrifice specials, but instead can be inflicted by regular enemies. There are multiple alternate branches of dialogue to account for any party member getting killed off.
** Having everyone dead except Margaret will open up the Sage Ending's Path, with the Sheldon Cooper/Sage of Water battle. However, this is non-canon (confusingly, it's "maybe canon" to ''Sheldin and Lenard Tock About Fysicks'' but is not canon at all to ''Ordinarily United''; the reveal after the main ending that the game was just something Stella played), and "''far'' from a 'golden ending.'"
* Taro now unavoidably dies after the fight against Green Bufflao DX. It is still technically possible to recruit Tamiko before this happens and have both of them in the party for a limited amount of time in Hard Mode, but considering how this requires beating the Thirty-Trial Test with Tox-Tick Woods-level of equipment and stats this is not recommended.
** The signs and dialogue foreshadowing his original possible death in Normal Mode have been altered to trick the player in to thinking this is the key to get through the game without anyone dying or by going on the Love Potion Route. Any references to "losing your head" are removed.
** Because of Taro's early death, the Meta Path (which, in Normal Mode, is only availble post-Mount. Tan and if Taro's life is spared) and the Love Potion Path (which is based on Taro turning evil) are both inaccessible, as a result they both lack events that trigger the route. "Tropes" will not spawn at all, and while the Dark Woods is still accessable, going there with Taro will have the Crow remark that this is "not [his] story anymore..." while going after his death provokes the same reaction the Crow will give if the player beat Tox-Tick Woods on the normal path.
** There is still a choice in Mount. Tan after beating the boss, however it is the Flao King capturing up to three party members and asking the player to kill them or kill the three shopkeepers, due to Taro's unavoidable death and the variable nature of the rest of the party.
*** The party members have a predetermined algorithm for which ones are chosen, in the likely event that some of them had already succumbed to permadeath attacks. If the game returns that a member is in the party, she will be picked, and if not the algorithm will move on to the next of the list. In order, this is: Moeko, Junko, Yoko, Hanako, Ishiko, and Tamiko. Margaret will never be selected. This means that for a full party, he will always hold Moeko, Junko, and Yoko hostage along with the three shopkeeper Flaos. If there are less than three "other" party members, then the remainders will be the ones captured, leaving Margaret alone. If Margaret is by herself, the Flao King will instead offer her to either kill the shopkeepers or give up her Sage powers, money, ''and'' items. Picking the latter will revert her from "Brenda" to a level 20 Margaret (regardless of Margaret's level prior to "awakening"). This will also lock off the Sage path.
*** Trying to "outsmart" the game by attempting to sacrifice a remaining party, then trying to complete the Thirty Trial Test with a solo Margaret and bring Tamiko for the end game will not work. If the algorithm picks Tamiko (which requires at least three other deaths) and she is not recruited, the Flao King will leap back in to Tox-Tick Woods, capture her, and hold her hostage. If Tamiko is spared, he will intentionally keep her in Mount. Tan rather than firing her to Sparkle Shores as with the others. Regardless of what action is taken, the Thirty-Trial Test will be closed off and Tamiko cannot be recruited for the rest of the game.
* While the main five Slimes (Green, Yellow, Red, Blue, and Purple) are not directly replaced on a per-type basis, random encounters with Slimes now consist of that original type plus their "hidden" type for each region (Gray and Green for Tox-Tick Woods, Orange and Yellow for Sandfall Desert, etc). Mount. Tan's Slime encounter is not a random pick of one of the five main types, but instead a group all of five of them at once, as with Normal Mode's Slime encounter in the King's Castle. "Bonus" slimes, however, ''are'' replaced with new variants, and fought in trios: the "new" Slime, their Normal Mode counterpart, and the one seen in the region throughout. The Slime Rush in the King's Castle is now far longer and includes all Slime types in addition to several more unique to the Rush.
* Beating the five secret Map Bosses will now allow access to a secret fight against Ninthee, a villain from ''Emazh In''. Ninthee is intended to be the hardest boss in the entire game, with high stats, powerful multi-hitting moves, and a strong resistance to the dark element used by the otherwise powerful Tamiko (meaning you can't cheese her with Sheol Strike). This is from the Completely Immovable Statue from Mount. Tan turning in to the Relatively Movable Door, which only opens when said Map Bosses are beaten. The Map Bosses themselves all have Hard Mode counterparts that are based on the same series, but with different character (for example, the one in Tox-Tick Woods is based more on Ryuko from ''Kill La Kill'', rather than Mako).
* The running gag in the first half of the game of Hanako blatantly pointing out each of the first three bosses' weaknesses (Burn Bombs for Green Bufflao, Bzzt Bombs for Yellow Bufflao, and Burr Bombs for Red Bufflao) is gone. At first this seems to be a parody of the nature of the game being "harder," the joke being that since the player likely cleared Normal Mode already they would know about the weakness, except it is an early clue that the DX versions of the Bufflaos are not as weak to the respective element.

!! ''Omega Toonwife Battle Simulator'' -- "Tear Mode"

Activated by choice rather than being protected by "password," from Lilith in the prologue. As ''Omega'' is a "bigger game" than ''i can't draw'', and Hard Mode was "making the game over again from scratch just about," this is not a major overhaul that replaces most enemies. Instead, it is similar to Pain Mode from ''Lisa: The Painful'', the base game with some changes to make it more difficult.

* Just like in Pain Mode of its inspiration ''Lisa: The Painful'' and Hard Mode of its predecessor ''another "another world" story'', save points are temporary.
* However, as they are the only random encounter enemies in the game, Springheads are buffed slightly, and come in new colors that are "in-between" the color of the ones encountered in that area and the ones in the next area. They may also be joined by several of the "Normal Mode"-tier Springheads. The full list is as follows:
** Red: Orange (Tutorimall)
** Blue: Purple (Bland Forest)
** Black: Gray (Platform Mountain)
** Silver: Pink (Metal Factory)
** Gold: Platinum (Sky Studios)
** Green: Yellow (Green Tower)
** Unholy: Demonic (Pitch-Black Ocean)
** Holy: Angelic (Ascention)
* Certain encounters have
* Shadows have a ''slightly'' higher chance of appearing, but all of them are still up to RNG.
* Some of the positive benefits of inns (getting extra Tickets up to and including a full refund; ) are removed. Inn effects are ''mostly'' "neutral" or "negative."
** There are some additional effects from staying at an inn: a party member (this will never happen with Ash, Mike, Lilith, any of the Sins (but it can happen with the Virtues), Cynthia, Granite, or Karla)
* Karla will demand that the party gives up their badges in addition to their armor when recruiting, but otherwise functions the same way.
* A form of "permadeath" is implimented in to the game -- party members that lose all health will become "critically injured" and cannot continue, with Eve being the sole exception (she's still knocked out and revived with Chocolate as usual). If Ash, Mike, and Lilith are critically injured, they will stay with the group for story-reasons, but other fighters will leave and will often be seen resting in the area they are recruited in.
** If this happens to Karla, the party still cannot equip armor ("It's a Nudist '''Vow,''' not a Nudist 'as Long as She's Not Around it's Okay to Break not Follow the Rule'"), and future members will strip as well.
* To "make up for" playing in the harder settings, Ultigarden is simply unlocked for beating either the White Key Path or the Black Key Path, with no need to recruit everyone.

[[folder:Gonna try cleaning up a thing on Broken Aesop/Western Animation; there's an example in there (the part about televised junk food), but as it stands there's a bit of Conversation on the Main Page and the first bullet is less "the story tries to tell a moral but the actual events break that moral" and more "a character in-story believes in one thing but also doesn't believe in another thing and other characters find that hypocritical," which is not the trope. "Intentional" also disqualifies something from being a Broken Aesop, it has to be unintentional]]

** Done subtly (and likely intentionally) in "Itchy and Scratchy and Marge". At first it seemed that Marge's crusade against cartoon violence was justified, especially when she was successful, getting the studio to stop doing it after the town supported her, and ultimately getting children to stop watching too much television. Unfortunately, after she refused to support another far more ridiculous protest against Michelangelo's ''David'' (claiming, justifiably, that ItsNotPornItsArt) she was called out on this, claiming she opposed one type of freedom of expression but supported another, and she couldn't defend herself. (In short, Marge was forced to admit she advocated an ugly thing that rigid MoralGuardians are frequently accused of advocating: Censorship. The show may have had a true Aesop, but it was ''not'' the one that Marge was trying to covey at all.)
*** Complicating the message further is that the MoralGuardians are actually shown to [[StrawmanHasAPoint have a pretty good point]]. ''Itchy and Scratchy'' is a very trashy show that does indeed inspire violence in children, and the people who make it are shown to be {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s who believe that kids just want to see blood. Thus, the moral becomes that "Though censorship, even in small amounts, may lead to obnoxious MoralGuardians trying to restrict great art for stupid reasons, no censorship whatsoever leads to hucksters flooding the media with televised junk food -- there isn't an easy solution and all actions have consequences."
*** It's important to keep in mind that it was Maggie, a baby and thus more impressionable than Bart, Lisa, and their friends, who inspired Marge's crusade. At no point during the episode are any older Springfield children shown to act on any violent impulses from watching ''Itchy and Scratchy'', nor is the middle ground of restricting viewership to an older audience and not letting Maggie watch it ever considered.

[[folder:"9. Unitia Origin" '''(Major Spoilers Within)''']]

[[caption-width-right:350:HE'S YOURS. TREAT HIM LIKE HE IS.]]

While Unitia One, who ''starts out'' calling herself "Unitia Origin" for the beginning part of the story, is a legitimate "traitor" to the Hundred Demons and is working on the side of good, she practically views her past self as a different entity. While technically being one and the same (and WordOfGod vehemently denies it being a case of LiteralSplitPersonality), Unitia Origin pre-"awakening" is so different and ''much'' more violent and evil that they are practically different characters, hence her own entry here. While Unitia One began taking the steps to get away from her stalker-past ''before'' the Hundred Demon project happened, this pre-development Unitia Origin is basically considered "the true Demon #9." The whole thing is complicated and symbolic anyway.

In the past, Unitia One went by the name/title "Unitia Origin" completely and was a highly-feared stalker who found over twenty different soul beings to obsess over, getting extremely sadistic when they stopped returning her favor. Initially "just" seen as a regular monster by their standards, after her soul existed for fourteen and a half years she suddenly gained a huge amount of power and became feared throughout all of the Parallel. It took until a soul being simply known as Fred, roughly one year after that (and exactly 14.5 years in ''his'' existence) before he would start to become someone who could actually compete on Origin's level. Fortunately for everyone, Origin began to

For information on her "current self," see Unitia One under [[Characters/OrdinarilyUnitedUnitiaOne her own page.]]

* BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind: Using Eellooshinist's powers, Wunhart makes a very vague template of Unitia Origin that attacks Unitia One. One's attempt to dispell the illusion only made things worse, as she ended up "filling the gaps" and created ''her own'' powerful mental enemy.
* EnemyWithout: Downplayed one to Unitia One. Speaking on a technical level, "Unitia Origin" in this context does not exist and never even physically manifest via clones or whatnot. All of her "appearances" are through illusions and dreams. She's not really an EnemyWithin either, as she never completely takes over Unitia One and is not treated as some kind of actual split personality, but rather a fear that One has not completely moved on from her past.
* {{Expy}}:
** Of [[ComicBook/ScottPilgrim NegaScott.]] Both are evil mirror entities resembling the main character (WordOfGod is that Unitia One is the "true" protagonist of ''Ordinarily United'' while Carlson is a DecoyProtagonist who quickly loses the spotlight starting around the third arc, and getting pushed to the sidelines even more by the fourth once One and Stella's "rift" gets worse) who represent their past mistakes. However, rather than dealing with her by [[SheatheYourSword sheathing her sword,]] Unitia One ''genuinely'' fights her but it's ultimately Carlson who finishes her off, representing how he accepts that One has moved on and became a better person than Origin.
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
**
* FullFrontalAssault: Inverted, as with many of the lategame Demons wearing clothes that make them look ''more'' meanacing. She has a shitload of arms, and uses them to form a pseudo-"dress" out of them. Her appearances with the arm-dress mark the closest times we have ''ever'' seen a Unitia wearing clothing -- the flashback barely counting since her "outfit" was overly-tacky, did not fit her, and she did not fully put it on -- and the result is goddamn unsettling after getting used to several chapters of the Unitias running around completely naked otherwise.
* {{Irony}}:
** In a meta sense, Great Pikmin Fan/[=NeedsMoreDeepWater=] came up with the actual Unitia ''One'' because he did not like it when a character with a design he liked was killed off or otherwise assigned as a simple one-off monster or character, and specifically made it a rule to not even ''hint'' that Unitia One would so much as die. When the story starts personifying her own past self as her own character, Unitia One effectively "kills her" by accepting that she's moved on. Because "Origin" is not really a soul being and just a figment of One's mind that Wunhart tricked her in to bringing to life, this means that Unitia Origin counts as the one character who really ''is'' DeaderThanDead.
* LoneWolfBoss: While she's grouped up with the rest of the Hundred Demons (likely simply to have "someone take the number nine slot" as Unitia One herself was double-crossing the group)
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: While the proper, present-Unitias can make however many arms they want, the past "Unitia Origin" by default had a ton of arms that she used to make a pseudo-dress out of. And these many arms are a short-hand indicator of how much of an unpredictable and unstable threat she was in the past, instead of the selfless heroine she became in the present.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Inverted, she's actually anywhere existing from about 18-ish years to '''1.''' (Unitia One/Origin's yandere tendancies did not really begin until after existing for about a year.) Soul beings just [[BornAsAnAdult start out as adults]] and do not age.
* {{Yandere}}: Oh lord, yes. Not as bad as GPF's other major yandere villains [[Literature/SteveBuhvillensIntriguingGroup Witchita]] or [[Literature/EmazhIn Ninthee,]] but in the past Unitia One/Origin was downright obsessed with certain soul beings [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe that showed her even the slightest amount of attention]] and would violently follow after them, becoming furious if they so much as spoke with someone else. Even though One started to develop out of this years before she met Carlson, "Unitia Origin" as a mind-illusion thing still likes One's current lover, Carlson. When One's attempt at dispelling an illusion just ends up "bringing her to life" as a seperate entity, Origin tries to convince One to go back to her old ways and treat Carlson possessively as well.

[[/folder]]

Eh (SPB/GTB):
* As a whole.
** Snowfall Tundra marks the point where the game starts building up its atmosphere and tweaks the "regular, quick, simple puzzles mixed with the party bantering with the Bufflaos" formula from the last two areas; Red just tries to throw fireballs and makes some tiles hazardous lava, and the game as a whole introduces a lot more gimmicks. ''Then'' comes Mount. Tan, where the StylisticSuck begins to fade in to a genuinely impressive mountain region building up to something. The game has a DifficultySpike, and by that point your party has long-since evolved and grown so that the game has become more complicated than the "hit and get hit; figure out the right element to use per villain and spam that" from the beginning. And ''then'' comes [[ClimaxBoss F.L.O.W.E.R. P.O.T.]] at the end and [[spoiler:the choice where you must sacrifice Taro or the three shopkeepers]] after that.
** The second installment in general compared to the first,
* The third arc, officially called the "Blast and the Past Arc,"[[note]]It came extremely close to being called the "New Wave of Heroes" arc back when Eighthback, Hoodieath, Eyebeam Man etc would have had a much bigger role. Then they turned out to be comic relief for the most part, so Fan made a title based on the Rock Holder, as the Cats and Dragons and Beam Duo Invasion Arcs would cover[[/note]] is where OU begins stepping out of the shadows of ''all'' of its inspirations and started feeling like it was its own original thing instead of leeching on plot points and elements of other stories: with the WhamEpisode of seemingly-ComicallyInvincibleHero Carlson ''losing'' (especially this relatively early in the story), no longer is it a parody of overpowered heroes in the exact same way as ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan''. The story abandons what little it was taking from the plot of ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'', for another thing, with the Rock Holder not really drawing any parallels with what would have been the Evil Ex by that point (Todd) and, in anything, being his opposite in terms of being a strategist rather than an idiot. With Carlson and Unitia One having their first-ever on-screen fight, the two turn out to ''not'' be SickeningSweethearts as the first two arcs might give the impression of and have a flawed, "more realistic" relationship where they both need to work together to overcome their flaws, their first actual major emotional obstacle that's not just something they can pin the blame on the Eighth Circle for. Also, [[DecoyProtagonist Carlson]] finally steps away from the center spotlight for a bit as Unitia One, widely considered a more interesting character anyway, steps in his place. By the time the Fuck the Jungle Arc rolled by, the slow/questionable pacing of the webnovel practically evaporates

Also, the "Mysterious Rival" that's been there since ''Unviewable 1''. The game effectively pulls a ''VideoGame/Bayonetta2'' once Tamiko breaks off his mask:
-->[[spoiler:GREEN GEM HOLDER]]\\
[[spoiler:TARO]]

Honestly I'd put something like ''Pikmin 4'' on an extra year's worth of delay to play the heck out of that, since I already play the heck out of the ''Zelda'' take that actually exists. Stan running around punching hundreds of gnomes, casting limit breaks as someone like Pacifica or Fiddleford on to Bill's minions, hell wrecking stuff as Bill himself since HW lets you play as villains too, [[spoiler:setting up Soos/[=.GIFfany=] or Mabel/Gideon on the same team just to be a giant fricking A-hole...]]

Not counting either run I died; whether it's getting the avatar from the previous or losing it.
* Hank: 5/25 -> 5/26 ('''2 days;''' died to Matriarch on 5/27)
* Brenda: 5/28 -> 5/29 ('''2 days;''' died to It Lives! on 5/30 curated daily (blindfolded Lost relying on bad familiars and also Rotten Baby's blue flies which ''are'' genuinely good))
* Sheldon: 5/31 ('''1 day;''' died to Orange/Red Champion Rag Man on 6/1 (that thing should not be the first boss in a run))
* Kamina: 6/2 -> 6/9 ('''8 days;''' died to Drowned Charger on 6/10 because Flooded Caves is utter hell and I had horrible luck with items)
* Alucard: 6/11 -> 6/12 ('''2 days;''' died to... I think Envy on 6/13 in AB. I survived AB+'s run but in AB I got almost softlocked when I completed a new heart container over a pit and negated Empty Vessel's flight, I blew myself up, Guppy's Collar brought me with just one heart and I got one soul heart just before getting ambushed by Envy in a tiny room. Turns out Envy in a tiny room with Epic Fetus is a bad combination.)
* Rose: 6/14 -> Ongoing
* Mis-Edventures: TBD
* Giffsters: TBD

So far the Kamina Era has set some gigantic shoes to fill.

-->'''Unitia Nine:''' ''(Slides in to room.)'' Are we yelling at bad writing in otherwise critically-aclaimed works of fiction? Because if we are, count me in!

!! Lemme try

* 1-8 still being viridian/jade/whatever, pink, yellow, blue, orange, rose (well since the meat/paint retcon thing), cyan, and magenta. That's fine. I wanted it to be slightly ''similar'' to RG's order but with some changes so that it's not the exact same.
* 9 can still be the black-haired one because of nine's significance, and Dove is the 9th one in the EFFI/''Ultimate''/possibly BHGHBAC order. I think it would fit a bit more than green, at least.
* After that:
** 10-12 originally being the chartreuse, green, and aqua (I'm getting sick of using "spring green," it feels weird that that's two words yet the other main thirteen RGB ring + black and white colors aren't)-haired ones is something I'm thinking of altering a tiny bit. To flip around the RG order chartreuse could come before aqua, so 10 can still be chartreuse, and 11 will instead be the aqua-haired one.
** '''Or''' I keep the "Four Friends"-based group close together. 10 would now be the azure-haired one and 11's the violet-haired one. It's still tweaked from RG's order and I do think that there's a "better effect" by intentionally saving the (other, Unitia One now adds one more main shade of green early on) greens and pure-red near the end.
* Okay,
** In Option A to the above, 12's azure and 13's violet.
** Going by Option B, 12's chartreuse and 13's aqua.
* With that sorted out the remaining three might be: white for 14, red for 15 (white comes before red in contrast to Burnda and Burrda), and the last one is the "Professor Rose/Alexia," 16.
* The whole list would mean that every single one of them would be in pairs according to their RG foil sets except for 9/16. Eh, I don't think that's too big of a deal/disbelief stretcher, especially since the "foil pair" thing isn't going to '''nearly''' come up as often as it probably will in new RG/in EI, and 1/2 is the only real main foil in OU and the only one where they noticeably play eachother in EU aside from 3/4. And even in 3/4's case it's to fit the blue and yellow thing.

This means jack-shit to the readers but it does mean a lot to me.

Okay, for future reference, the thing is called ''WesternAnimation/StrawinskyAndTheMysteriousHouse''.

''Jemjammer'' is an actual-play podcast set in the ''TabletopGame/Spelljammer'' setting of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. DMed by Kit Walker, it features the boisterous elven bard Cacophony (Man Weaver), the no-nonsense cleric Jylliana (Annie Craton), and the stoic human ranger Ælfgifu (Kit's mom Vicki) (pronounced “Alviva”). The podcast launched in 2018 after three of the ladies put their ''WesternAnimation/JemAndTheHolograms'' fancast ''The Jem Jam'' on hiatus due completing the animated series and comics.

!This podcast contains the following tropes.

* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: Cacophony pronounces Alana's name differently every time she says it. (Ala''na'', A''la''na, ''E''lana, etc).
* ActionGirl: All of the party, naturally.
* CoolStarship: The Kestrel, the ship that brought Alana and her crew to this planet.
* MyNaymeIs: Ælfgifu is pronounced “Alviva”.
* OrcRaisedByElves: A human raised by elves for Ælfgifu, actually.
* OverlyLongGag: When the group is ambushed and Cacophony has to rouse everyone from their sleep to fight back, Jylliana spends a good five minutes waking up and gathering up her stuff. It almost lasts into the fight itself!
* PettingZooPeople: Mr. Herst is a Giff, or hippopotamus-man.
* ShoutOut:
** When the party is ambushed whilst guarding the Kestrel, Cacophony bluffs that the group are searching for a [[Literature/ChroniclesOfNarnia white hart]] to become queens of the land.
** While Jylliana is trying to wake up at this time, Ælfgifu calls out [[Series/LostInSpace “Danger Will Robinson!”]]
* {{Transformation}}: Mr. Herst is encased as wood seemingly as a precautionary measure after the Kestrel crashes.
* VerbalTic: Cacophony calls others “my dear” and “my love” quite often. Jylliana doesn't like it.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Jylliana is afraid of spiders, which is a concern when the first encounter the group faces is a group of giant spiders.

Funny

* After Cacophony and Alana discover the ship's captain dead, Cacophony is at a loss to do.
-->'''Maq:''' I mostly get up there, look very serious, and flounce around uselessly.\\
'''Vicki:''' I'm having trouble holding “serious” and “flouncing” in my head at the same time.\\
'''Maq:''' It's Cacophony, so flouncing is about as serious as she can get.
* Jylliana shrieks when she finds the body.
-->'''Ælfgifu:''' Look at it this way, he's not a spider.\\
'''Jylliana:'''…this is an improvement on my day.
* Maq starts singing “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” while rolling her dice, then continues to sing while Kit tries to set the scene until Annie snaps at her. Then Maq defends herself by claiming it's “Wake Me Up Before the Spiders Show-ow”.
* After Jylliana [[spoiler: disintegrates her attacker with Wrath of the Storm]], the only PostMortemOneLiner she can muster is “It is TOO! ''EARLY''!”

Awesome

* After [[spoiler: disintegrating a dude with lightning]], Jylliana is able to scare the rest of the bandits away from the party.

** While a major purpose of the fic was to give canon's various Monsters of the Week a great deal of screentime as they're stuck on an island with Stan, Ford, Soos, Melody, and the Henchmaniacs serving as the villains, it's instead gathered more of a Henchmaniac fan-readership than a MOTW fan-readership.
** Some who sat through ''Total Zeksmit'' or ''Total Drama World Tour Rewrite'' and did not like GPF's portrayal of Ezekiel as a SpotlightStealingSquad compared to canon's major characters would read EFFIRRRR because Ezekiel has ''both'' an expy-character, Zeskit the Troll, who gets killed off one chapter after his introduction; and '''Ezekiel himself''' makes a cameo later on just to get hit (non-fatally) by debris.

* ''Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group'':
** Okay, the premise is about a magma-themed faux-[[NubileSavage cavewoman-like]] person who doesn't like clothes very much and fights against... um, her home society's new policy on clothing or something? And her powers are... um...
** There's also Witchita, the demon from hell that's ''technically'' covered everywhere but half her face and her arms with hair, yet is still nude under it, and the hair does blow away on occasion. It helps that she's the closest of BLOODSHOT to a fanservice character, since the rest of the female members consist of: a young teenager with an obsession with violence that licks Poixer's blood at one point; an identity-stealing hacker that stays fully clothed for the whole duration of the main story; a fifty-foot tall AxCrazy wolf-like woman that throws enough NightmareFace[=s=] so that even people who ''are'' part of the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom would be turned off; and an ''extremely'' hostile "idol singer" that blows the brains out of several people onscreen. For male members there's at least Xunter, Coward's Mask (if you don't mind the mullet),
* ''Emazh In'' summaries tend to be sorted in to one of three categories: those that go on about the {{Stripperiffic}} outfits of the Emazhes (with almost ''all'' of the major Charges -- and several who aren't -- even going around topless), how Ninthee somehow manages to feel more sexual than them despite being fully clothed, or both.
* If someone's not trying to "sell" the ''Unviewable Panties of Ishiko-Chan'' with the utter MindScrew that its latter two installments pull with their MultipleEndings, it's one of two things: the {{Stripperiffic}} CatGirl demon women who make [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Felicia]] look modest in comparison, or their SpearCounterpart[=s=] '''finally''' introduced in the third installment that love running around shirtless with extremely low-riding pants who are ''also'' subjected to the same fanservice scenarios that GPF normally avoids writing otherwise (he only did it with this in the first place to make fun of it, which to some degree [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing back]][[MisaimedFandom fired]]). Also, the story becomes an ArtifactTitle by the end of the first installment: at no point does it ever have a problem with PantyShot[=s=] of the rest of the cast, just Ishiko, and even then that's dropped at the end when she deactivates her in-universe MagicSkirt and flashes Taro. With a deliberately over-the-top description of her undergarments.

* As with Mudvin before and [=.GIFfany=] [[FanFic/UltimateChaoticMysteriousDarkPower (twi]][[FanFic/BobbyHillGetsHitByACar ce!)]], the "Mysterious Rival," Lilith Sahtabb, [some other examples] and technically Ezekiel after, OU has its own Creator/PlatinumGames-inspired MirrorBoss. In this case, Ninjssassin, who fights Carlson exactly four times. Each time just escalates from the last, getting way more batshit as they go on:
** The first battle takes place on Hill Town Outskirts, where she carves part of a cliff in to an arena as it slides down the side of the fucking enormous canyon. Carlson fights what is technically his first-ever ''real'' challenge that actually wants to kill him, while she quickly blasts away what little was already in the arena by first destroying most of the trees and then with her and Carlson's strike to one-another blowing the whole thing in half. From there, Carlson ''surfs'' on the chunk of rock to get after where Ninjssassin was at, and they conclude the fight on a tiny, spinning rocky platform that Carlson, less than five minutes ago, had his first bizarre conversation with the Eighth Circle. There's a good reason why, after finally witnessing the ''real'' power of a Shiny Rock after an... underwhelming "demonstration" by Swinging Blade, he charges in to the coliseum grinning as he prepares to fight Blazing Fast.
** In the second fight, Ninjssassin ambushes him at the peak of Cooper Domain's mountain, slicing off a colossal chunk of ice and using it as a boat going down an increasingly-fast river. Their battle, again on a moving platform, which takes them in to a cave, dwon in a lake, and eventually to a volcanic lava chamber. Oh yeah, and last fight, neither of them knew how to summon "familiars" from their Rock/boomerang; Carlson did not discover that unil the battle with Blazing Fast immediately after. Here? Well, Carlson tries making his "phantom horse," just to find out that Ninjssassin can make her own HellHorse too. The two phantom horses clash a ''lot'' in the background while Carlson and Ninjssassin fight on a shrinking ice platform that goes from a peak overlooking a giant jungle down to the depths of the Earth.
** The third fight, in Hellguy Village, starts out on what's basically a "sky train" that Ninjssassin derails.
** And ''then'' there's the fourth fight. [[spoiler:Last was just killed and her planets were shattered; Ninjssassin, one of the final three members of the Hundred Demons left alive, ]]

[[folder:Difficult]]

!! ''i can't draw'' -- "Hard Mode"

Near the beginning of the game, Tamiko will ask to give a "generic name, possibly for a pet, that will be important later." Entering "[=HardMD=]" for this name will start Hard Mode. (If you pick "[=EasyMD=]," however, you will get "Easy Mode." Unlike Hard Mode, which is a full alternate playthrough with some exclusive paths, Easy Mode is a simple joke game that is impossible to lose with only one real "battle," a fight against the Flao King where he instantly surrenders.)

* Usually, but not always (this is deliberate), enemies are replaced with stronger variations. Since their regular counterparts may remain, this can be considered doubling the amount of enemies in each region from five on average to ten on average (with the exceptions of Snowfall Tundra and Mount. Tan, which already have more enemies).
** The main bosses are the same "characters," but are replaced
* Saving at any time is disabled (places that normally disable menu saving, like the Thirty-Trial Test, will have the warning note remove to reflect this). Instead, the player must save at the former Healing Spots. They still fully heal the party, but they are single-use; they will "shatter" after being opened, regardless of whether or not the player actually saves. The mechanic also shows up in the Thirty-Trial Test in Normal Mode, where each of the three floors has a one-use savepoint so that the player does not have to clear all thirty battles in one sitting. This is meant to discourage save scumming.
** A new "Healing Spot" is added in Flao Town that is completely unbreakable. However, it simply saves the game, it does not heal the party. This is for the convenience of a player who needs to save in an emergency.
* Permadeath is no longer exclusive to just three final bosses (Ed's House Crush move, Monika's File Deletion that she will use after five turns, and Flao King's Execution (only used if Taro is picked to live in Mount. Tan)), Taro's potential death in the Mount. Tan choice, or self-sacrifice specials, but instead can be inflicted by regular enemies. There are multiple alternate branches of dialogue to account for any party member getting killed off.
** Having everyone dead except Margaret will open up the Sage Ending's Path, with the Sheldon Cooper/Sage of Water battle. However, this is non-canon (confusingly, it's "maybe canon" to ''Sheldin and Lenard Tock About Fysicks'' but is not canon at all to ''Ordinarily United''; the reveal after the main ending that the game was just something Stella played), and "''far'' from a 'golden ending.'"
* Taro now unavoidably dies after the fight against Green Bufflao DX. It is still technically possible to recruit Tamiko before this happens and have both of them in the party for a limited amount of time in Hard Mode, but considering how this requires beating the Thirty-Trial Test with Tox-Tick Woods-level of equipment and stats this is not recommended.
** The signs and dialogue foreshadowing his original possible death in Normal Mode have been altered to trick the player in to thinking this is the key to get through the game without anyone dying or by going on the Love Potion Route. Any references to "losing your head" are removed.
** Because of Taro's early death, the Meta Path (which, in Normal Mode, is only availble post-Mount. Tan and if Taro's life is spared) and the Love Potion Path (which is based on Taro turning evil) are both inaccessible, as a result they both lack events that trigger the route. "Tropes" will not spawn at all, and while the Dark Woods is still accessable, going there with Taro will have the Crow remark that this is "not [his] story anymore..." while going after his death provokes the same reaction the Crow will give if the player beat Tox-Tick Woods on the normal path.
** There is still a choice in Mount. Tan after beating the boss, however it is the Flao King capturing up to three party members and asking the player to kill them or kill the three shopkeepers, due to Taro's unavoidable death and the variable nature of the rest of the party.
*** The party members have a predetermined algorithm for which ones are chosen, in the likely event that some of them had already succumbed to permadeath attacks. If the game returns that a member is in the party, she will be picked, and if not the algorithm will move on to the next of the list. In order, this is: Moeko, Junko, Yoko, Hanako, Ishiko, and Tamiko. Margaret will never be selected. This means that for a full party, he will always hold Moeko, Junko, and Yoko hostage along with the three shopkeeper Flaos. If there are less than three "other" party members, then the remainders will be the ones captured, leaving Margaret alone. If Margaret is by herself, the Flao King will instead offer her to either kill the shopkeepers or give up her Sage powers, money, ''and'' items. Picking the latter will revert her from "Brenda" to a level 20 Margaret (regardless of Margaret's level prior to "awakening"). This will also lock off the Sage path.
*** Trying to "outsmart" the game by attempting to sacrifice a remaining party, then trying to complete the Thirty Trial Test with a solo Margaret and bring Tamiko for the end game will not work. If the algorithm picks Tamiko (which requires at least three other deaths) and she is not recruited, the Flao King will leap back in to Tox-Tick Woods, capture her, and hold her hostage. If Tamiko is spared, he will intentionally keep her in Mount. Tan rather than firing her to Sparkle Shores as with the others. Regardless of what action is taken, the Thirty-Trial Test will be closed off and Tamiko cannot be recruited for the rest of the game.
* While the main five Slimes (Green, Yellow, Red, Blue, and Purple) are not directly replaced on a per-type basis, random encounters with Slimes now consist of that original type plus their "hidden" type for each region (Gray and Green for Tox-Tick Woods, Orange and Yellow for Sandfall Desert, etc). Mount. Tan's Slime encounter is not a random pick of one of the five main types, but instead a group all of five of them at once, as with Normal Mode's Slime encounter in the King's Castle. "Bonus" slimes, however, ''are'' replaced with new variants, and fought in trios: the "new" Slime, their Normal Mode counterpart, and the one seen in the region throughout. The Slime Rush in the King's Castle is now far longer and includes all Slime types in addition to several more unique to the Rush.
* Beating the five secret Map Bosses will now allow access to a secret fight against Ninthee, a villain from ''Emazh In''. Ninthee is intended to be the hardest boss in the entire game, with high stats, powerful multi-hitting moves, and a strong resistance to the dark element used by the otherwise powerful Tamiko (meaning you can't cheese her with Sheol Strike). This is from the Completely Immovable Statue from Mount. Tan turning in to the Relatively Movable Door, which only opens when said Map Bosses are beaten. The Map Bosses themselves all have Hard Mode counterparts that are based on the same series, but with different character (for example, the one in Tox-Tick Woods is based more on Ryuko from ''Kill La Kill'', rather than Mako).
* The running gag in the first half of the game of Hanako blatantly pointing out each of the first three bosses' weaknesses (Burn Bombs for Green Bufflao, Bzzt Bombs for Yellow Bufflao, and Burr Bombs for Red Bufflao) is gone. At first this seems to be a parody of the nature of the game being "harder," the joke being that since the player likely cleared Normal Mode already they would know about the weakness, except it is an early clue that the DX versions of the Bufflaos are not as weak to the respective element.

!! ''Omega Toonwife Battle Simulator'' -- "Tear Mode"

Activated by choice rather than being protected by "password," from Lilith in the prologue. As ''Omega'' is a "bigger game" than ''i can't draw'', and Hard Mode was "making the game over again from scratch just about," this is not a major overhaul that replaces most enemies. Instead, it is similar to Pain Mode from ''Lisa: The Painful'', the base game with some changes to make it more difficult.

* Just like in Pain Mode of its inspiration ''Lisa: The Painful'' and Hard Mode of its predecessor ''another "another world" story'', save points are temporary.
* However, as they are the only random encounter enemies in the game, Springheads are buffed slightly, and come in new colors that are "in-between" the color of the ones encountered in that area and the ones in the next area. They may also be joined by several of the "Normal Mode"-tier Springheads. The full list is as follows:
** Red: Orange (Tutorimall)
** Blue: Purple (Bland Forest)
** Black: Gray (Platform Mountain)
** Silver: Pink (Metal Factory)
** Gold: Platinum (Sky Studios)
** Green: Yellow (Green Tower)
** Unholy: Demonic (Pitch-Black Ocean)
** Holy: Angelic (Ascention)
* Certain encounters have
* Shadows have a ''slightly'' higher chance of appearing, but all of them are still up to RNG.
* Some of the positive benefits of inns (getting extra Tickets up to and including a full refund; ) are removed. Inn effects are ''mostly'' "neutral" or "negative."
** There are some additional effects from staying at an inn: a party member (this will never happen with Ash, Mike, Lilith, any of the Sins (but it can happen with the Virtues), Cynthia, Granite, or Karla)
* Karla will demand that the party gives up their badges in addition to their armor when recruiting, but otherwise functions the same way.
* A form of "permadeath" is implimented in to the game -- party members that lose all health will become "critically injured" and cannot continue, with Eve being the sole exception (she's still knocked out and revived with Chocolate as usual). If Ash, Mike, and Lilith are critically injured, they will stay with the group for story-reasons, but other fighters will leave and will often be seen resting in the area they are recruited in.
** If this happens to Karla, the party still cannot equip armor ("It's a Nudist '''Vow,''' not a Nudist 'as Long as She's Not Around it's Okay to Break not Follow the Rule'"), and future members will strip as well.
* To "make up for" playing in the harder settings, Ultigarden is simply unlocked for beating either the White Key Path or the Black Key Path, with no need to recruit everyone.

[[folder:Gonna try cleaning up a thing on Broken Aesop/Western Animation; there's an example in there (the part about televised junk food), but as it stands there's a bit of Conversation on the Main Page and the first bullet is less "the story tries to tell a moral but the actual events break that moral" and more "a character in-story believes in one thing but also doesn't believe in another thing and other characters find that hypocritical," which is not the trope. "Intentional" also disqualifies something from being a Broken Aesop, it has to be unintentional]]

** Done subtly (and likely intentionally) in "Itchy and Scratchy and Marge". At first it seemed that Marge's crusade against cartoon violence was justified, especially when she was successful, getting the studio to stop doing it after the town supported her, and ultimately getting children to stop watching too much television. Unfortunately, after she refused to support another far more ridiculous protest against Michelangelo's ''David'' (claiming, justifiably, that ItsNotPornItsArt) she was called out on this, claiming she opposed one type of freedom of expression but supported another, and she couldn't defend herself. (In short, Marge was forced to admit she advocated an ugly thing that rigid MoralGuardians are frequently accused of advocating: Censorship. The show may have had a true Aesop, but it was ''not'' the one that Marge was trying to covey at all.)
*** Complicating the message further is that the MoralGuardians are actually shown to [[StrawmanHasAPoint have a pretty good point]]. ''Itchy and Scratchy'' is a very trashy show that does indeed inspire violence in children, and the people who make it are shown to be {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s who believe that kids just want to see blood. Thus, the moral becomes that "Though censorship, even in small amounts, may lead to obnoxious MoralGuardians trying to restrict great art for stupid reasons, no censorship whatsoever leads to hucksters flooding the media with televised junk food -- there isn't an easy solution and all actions have consequences."
*** It's important to keep in mind that it was Maggie, a baby and thus more impressionable than Bart, Lisa, and their friends, who inspired Marge's crusade. At no point during the episode are any older Springfield children shown to act on any violent impulses from watching ''Itchy and Scratchy'', nor is the middle ground of restricting viewership to an older audience and not letting Maggie watch it ever considered.

[[folder:"9. Unitia Origin" '''(Major Spoilers Within)''']]

[[caption-width-right:350:HE'S YOURS. TREAT HIM LIKE HE IS.]]

While Unitia One, who ''starts out'' calling herself "Unitia Origin" for the beginning part of the story, is a legitimate "traitor" to the Hundred Demons and is working on the side of good, she practically views her past self as a different entity. While technically being one and the same (and WordOfGod vehemently denies it being a case of LiteralSplitPersonality), Unitia Origin pre-"awakening" is so different and ''much'' more violent and evil that they are practically different characters, hence her own entry here. While Unitia One began taking the steps to get away from her stalker-past ''before'' the Hundred Demon project happened, this pre-development Unitia Origin is basically considered "the true Demon #9." The whole thing is complicated and symbolic anyway.

In the past, Unitia One went by the name/title "Unitia Origin" completely and was a highly-feared stalker who found over twenty different soul beings to obsess over, getting extremely sadistic when they stopped returning her favor. Initially "just" seen as a regular monster by their standards, after her soul existed for fourteen and a half years she suddenly gained a huge amount of power and became feared throughout all of the Parallel. It took until a soul being simply known as Fred, roughly one year after that (and exactly 14.5 years in ''his'' existence) before he would start to become someone who could actually compete on Origin's level. Fortunately for everyone, Origin began to

For information on her "current self," see Unitia One under [[Characters/OrdinarilyUnitedUnitiaOne her own page.]]

* BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind: Using Eellooshinist's powers, Wunhart makes a very vague template of Unitia Origin that attacks Unitia One. One's attempt to dispell the illusion only made things worse, as she ended up "filling the gaps" and created ''her own'' powerful mental enemy.
* EnemyWithout: Downplayed one to Unitia One. Speaking on a technical level, "Unitia Origin" in this context does not exist and never even physically manifest via clones or whatnot. All of her "appearances" are through illusions and dreams. She's not really an EnemyWithin either, as she never completely takes over Unitia One and is not treated as some kind of actual split personality, but rather a fear that One has not completely moved on from her past.
* {{Expy}}:
** Of [[ComicBook/ScottPilgrim NegaScott.]] Both are evil mirror entities resembling the main character (WordOfGod is that Unitia One is the "true" protagonist of ''Ordinarily United'' while Carlson is a DecoyProtagonist who quickly loses the spotlight starting around the third arc, and getting pushed to the sidelines even more by the fourth once One and Stella's "rift" gets worse) who represent their past mistakes. However, rather than dealing with her by [[SheatheYourSword sheathing her sword,]] Unitia One ''genuinely'' fights her but it's ultimately Carlson who finishes her off, representing how he accepts that One has moved on and became a better person than Origin.
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
**
* FullFrontalAssault: Inverted, as with many of the lategame Demons wearing clothes that make them look ''more'' meanacing. She has a shitload of arms, and uses them to form a pseudo-"dress" out of them. Her appearances with the arm-dress mark the closest times we have ''ever'' seen a Unitia wearing clothing -- the flashback barely counting since her "outfit" was overly-tacky, did not fit her, and she did not fully put it on -- and the result is goddamn unsettling after getting used to several chapters of the Unitias running around completely naked otherwise.
* {{Irony}}:
** In a meta sense, Great Pikmin Fan/[=NeedsMoreDeepWater=] came up with the actual Unitia ''One'' because he did not like it when a character with a design he liked was killed off or otherwise assigned as a simple one-off monster or character, and specifically made it a rule to not even ''hint'' that Unitia One would so much as die. When the story starts personifying her own past self as her own character, Unitia One effectively "kills her" by accepting that she's moved on. Because "Origin" is not really a soul being and just a figment of One's mind that Wunhart tricked her in to bringing to life, this means that Unitia Origin counts as the one character who really ''is'' DeaderThanDead.
* LoneWolfBoss: While she's grouped up with the rest of the Hundred Demons (likely simply to have "someone take the number nine slot" as Unitia One herself was double-crossing the group)
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: While the proper, present-Unitias can make however many arms they want, the past "Unitia Origin" by default had a ton of arms that she used to make a pseudo-dress out of. And these many arms are a short-hand indicator of how much of an unpredictable and unstable threat she was in the past, instead of the selfless heroine she became in the present.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Inverted, she's actually anywhere existing from about 18-ish years to '''1.''' (Unitia One/Origin's yandere tendancies did not really begin until after existing for about a year.) Soul beings just [[BornAsAnAdult start out as adults]] and do not age.
* {{Yandere}}: Oh lord, yes. Not as bad as GPF's other major yandere villains [[Literature/SteveBuhvillensIntriguingGroup Witchita]] or [[Literature/EmazhIn Ninthee,]] but in the past Unitia One/Origin was downright obsessed with certain soul beings [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe that showed her even the slightest amount of attention]] and would violently follow after them, becoming furious if they so much as spoke with someone else. Even though One started to develop out of this years before she met Carlson, "Unitia Origin" as a mind-illusion thing still likes One's current lover, Carlson. When One's attempt at dispelling an illusion just ends up "bringing her to life" as a seperate entity, Origin tries to convince One to go back to her old ways and treat Carlson possessively as well.

[[/folder]]

Eh (SPB/GTB):
* As a whole.
** Snowfall Tundra marks the point where the game starts building up its atmosphere and tweaks the "regular, quick, simple puzzles mixed with the party bantering with the Bufflaos" formula from the last two areas; Red just tries to throw fireballs and makes some tiles hazardous lava, and the game as a whole introduces a lot more gimmicks. ''Then'' comes Mount. Tan, where the StylisticSuck begins to fade in to a genuinely impressive mountain region building up to something. The game has a DifficultySpike, and by that point your party has long-since evolved and grown so that the game has become more complicated than the "hit and get hit; figure out the right element to use per villain and spam that" from the beginning. And ''then'' comes [[ClimaxBoss F.L.O.W.E.R. P.O.T.]] at the end and [[spoiler:the choice where you must sacrifice Taro or the three shopkeepers]] after that.
** The second installment in general compared to the first,
* The third arc, officially called the "Blast and the Past Arc,"[[note]]It came extremely close to being called the "New Wave of Heroes" arc back when Eighthback, Hoodieath, Eyebeam Man etc would have had a much bigger role. Then they turned out to be comic relief for the most part, so Fan made a title based on the Rock Holder, as the Cats and Dragons and Beam Duo Invasion Arcs would cover[[/note]] is where OU begins stepping out of the shadows of ''all'' of its inspirations and started feeling like it was its own original thing instead of leeching on plot points and elements of other stories: with the WhamEpisode of seemingly-ComicallyInvincibleHero Carlson ''losing'' (especially this relatively early in the story), no longer is it a parody of overpowered heroes in the exact same way as ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan''. The story abandons what little it was taking from the plot of ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'', for another thing, with the Rock Holder not really drawing any parallels with what would have been the Evil Ex by that point (Todd) and, in anything, being his opposite in terms of being a strategist rather than an idiot. With Carlson and Unitia One having their first-ever on-screen fight, the two turn out to ''not'' be SickeningSweethearts as the first two arcs might give the impression of and have a flawed, "more realistic" relationship where they both need to work together to overcome their flaws, their first actual major emotional obstacle that's not just something they can pin the blame on the Eighth Circle for. Also, [[DecoyProtagonist Carlson]] finally steps away from the center spotlight for a bit as Unitia One, widely considered a more interesting character anyway, steps in his place. By the time the Fuck the Jungle Arc rolled by, the slow/questionable pacing of the webnovel practically evaporates

Also, the "Mysterious Rival" that's been there since ''Unviewable 1''. The game effectively pulls a ''VideoGame/Bayonetta2'' once Tamiko breaks off his mask:

Honestly I'd put something like ''Pikmin 4'' on an extra year's worth of delay to play the heck out of that, since I already play the heck out of the ''Zelda'' take that actually exists. Stan running around punching hundreds of gnomes, casting limit breaks as someone like Pacifica or Fiddleford on to Bill's minions, hell wrecking stuff as Bill himself since HW lets you play as villains too, [[spoiler:setting up Soos/[=.GIFfany=] or Mabel/Gideon on the same team just to be a giant fricking A-hole...]]

Not counting either run I died; whether it's getting the avatar from the previous or losing it.
* Hank: 5/25 -> 5/26 ('''2 days;''' died to Matriarch on 5/27)
* Brenda: 5/28 -> 5/29 ('''2 days;''' died to It Lives! on 5/30 curated daily (blindfolded Lost relying on bad familiars and also Rotten Baby's blue flies which ''are'' genuinely good))
* Sheldon: 5/31 ('''1 day;''' died to Orange/Red Champion Rag Man on 6/1 (that thing should not be the first boss in a run))
* Kamina: 6/2 -> 6/9 ('''8 days;''' died to Drowned Charger on 6/10 because Flooded Caves is utter hell and I had horrible luck with items)
* Alucard: 6/11 -> 6/12 ('''2 days;''' died to... I think Envy on 6/13 in AB. I survived AB+'s run but in AB I got almost softlocked when I completed a new heart container over a pit and negated Empty Vessel's flight, I blew myself up, Guppy's Collar brought me with just one heart and I got one soul heart just before getting ambushed by Envy in a tiny room. Turns out Envy in a tiny room with Epic Fetus is a bad combination.)
* Rose: 6/14 -> Ongoing
* Mis-Edventures: TBD
* Giffsters: TBD

So far the Kamina Era has set some gigantic shoes to fill.

-->'''Unitia Nine:''' ''(Slides in to room.)'' Are we yelling at bad writing in otherwise critically-aclaimed works of fiction? Because if we are, count me in!

!! Lemme try

* 1-8 still being viridian/jade/whatever, pink, yellow, blue, orange, rose (well since the meat/paint retcon thing), cyan, and magenta. That's fine. I wanted it to be slightly ''similar'' to RG's order but with some changes so that it's not the exact same.
* 9 can still be the black-haired one because of nine's significance, and Dove is the 9th one in the EFFI/''Ultimate''/possibly BHGHBAC order. I think it would fit a bit more than green, at least.
* After that:
** 10-12 originally being the chartreuse, green, and aqua (I'm getting sick of using "spring green," it feels weird that that's two words yet the other main thirteen RGB ring + black and white colors aren't)-haired ones is something I'm thinking of altering a tiny bit. To flip around the RG order chartreuse could come before aqua, so 10 can still be chartreuse, and 11 will instead be the aqua-haired one.
** '''Or''' I keep the "Four Friends"-based group close together. 10 would now be the azure-haired one and 11's the violet-haired one. It's still tweaked from RG's order and I do think that there's a "better effect" by intentionally saving the (other, Unitia One now adds one more main shade of green early on) greens and pure-red near the end.
* Okay,
** In Option A to the above, 12's azure and 13's violet.
** Going by Option B, 12's chartreuse and 13's aqua.
* With that sorted out the remaining three might be: white for 14, red for 15 (white comes before red in contrast to Burnda and Burrda), and the last one is the "Professor Rose/Alexia," 16.
* The whole list would mean that every single one of them would be in pairs according to their RG foil sets except for 9/16. Eh, I don't think that's too big of a deal/disbelief stretcher, especially since the "foil pair" thing isn't going to '''nearly''' come up as often as it probably will in new RG/in EI, and 1/2 is the only real main foil in OU and the only one where they noticeably play eachother in EU aside from 3/4. And even in 3/4's case it's to fit the blue and yellow thing.

This means jack-shit to the readers but it does mean a lot to me.

Okay, for future reference, the thing is called ''WesternAnimation/StrawinskyAndTheMysteriousHouse''.

''Jemjammer'' is an actual-play podcast set in the ''TabletopGame/Spelljammer'' setting of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. DMed by Kit Walker, it features the boisterous elven bard Cacophony (Man Weaver), the no-nonsense cleric Jylliana (Annie Craton), and the stoic human ranger Ælfgifu (Kit's mom Vicki) (pronounced “Alviva”). The podcast launched in 2018 after three of the ladies put their ''WesternAnimation/JemAndTheHolograms'' fancast ''The Jem Jam'' on hiatus due completing the animated series and comics.

!This podcast contains the following tropes.

* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: Cacophony pronounces Alana's name differently every time she says it. (Ala''na'', A''la''na, ''E''lana, etc).
* ActionGirl: All of the party, naturally.
* CoolStarship: The Kestrel, the ship that brought Alana and her crew to this planet.
* MyNaymeIs: Ælfgifu is pronounced “Alviva”.
* OrcRaisedByElves: A human raised by elves for Ælfgifu, actually.
* OverlyLongGag: When the group is ambushed and Cacophony has to rouse everyone from their sleep to fight back, Jylliana spends a good five minutes waking up and gathering up her stuff. It almost lasts into the fight itself!
* PettingZooPeople: Mr. Herst is a Giff, or hippopotamus-man.
* ShoutOut:
** When the party is ambushed whilst guarding the Kestrel, Cacophony bluffs that the group are searching for a [[Literature/ChroniclesOfNarnia white hart]] to become queens of the land.
** While Jylliana is trying to wake up at this time, Ælfgifu calls out [[Series/LostInSpace “Danger Will Robinson!”]]
* {{Transformation}}: Mr. Herst is encased as wood seemingly as a precautionary measure after the Kestrel crashes.
* VerbalTic: Cacophony calls others “my dear” and “my love” quite often. Jylliana doesn't like it.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Jylliana is afraid of spiders, which is a concern when the first encounter the group faces is a group of giant spiders.
