[[folder:Wait, What the Hell Was That?]]

The general idea is that this should feel like a spinoff with a little more of an action adventure edge, combining ''Pikmin 2''[='=]s adventure-themed atmosphere and heavier focus on combat (through the caves) and Olimar's presentation in the ''Super Smash Bros.'' games. Basically a compromise with those who want more combat-themed elements in, yet it's not part of the "main series" so that those who like the resource and time management will still have sequels to look foreward to. Ideally it should have enough of its identity that it doesn't feel like "A ''Pikmin'' game where your player character happens to be a Pikmin," but isn't so distinct that it comes off as something that could be better suited as being slapped a ''Mario'', ''Zelda'', ''Kirby'', or original IP title so that it's more recognizable in the former three cases, or more "true" to what it "really is" in the case of the latter.

!! TYPES

''Portable'' once again sees use of Red, Yellow, and Blue Pikmin. And just like ''2'' and ''3'', you have two additional main types to care about. Here's your total party of five for the majority of the game:
* Red Pikmin: Still the strongest, still the first introduced (in 1-1), their fire immunity is still mostly optional. With Purple Pikmin still out of the picture for most of the game, their priority is in their strength. Pack most of your team with them if you plan on spending time beating enemies.
* Yellow Pikmin: Introduced in 1-2.
* Blue Pikmin: Introduced in 1-3.
* Aqua Pikmin: Introduced in 2-1.

!! PETALS

One of the action adventure elements could be something along the lines of a stat upgrade system. In this case, you'll find large colored petals that each correspond to the main types of

!! WORLDS

''Portable'' has a ''Mario''-based level mechanic. To try to combat any limitations with the [=3DS=] or any of its potential successors, there's a total of five "Zones" scattered around the planet much like what we see in the main game's overworld, except each is divided into six "Areas." Roughly, the first of these areas should be more lax than the game's norm by that point (eg there will ''usually'' be a difficulty fall if you compare X-5 or X-6 to Y-1, Y obviously being the Zone after X, then Y-2 will be about on par with X-5) and the sixth would simply consist of a short path leading up to a boss area. If you have all Pikmin on the field with you, then you can simply fly over from one Area to another in an in-game instant, taking up none of your day time. However, going from one entire Zone to another would require ending the day for whatever reason. Let's just say your Onion is exceptionally slow and would need to spend the nights in flight mode over to the next Zone. Ideally, each Zone should be formatted in a way that speedrunners could clear them in one day with a little extra time to spare. This would be a sort of intended expert challenge, maybe even one that the game actually keeps track of should it be easy enough, to encourage time saving and add replay value. With that in mind, this means that ''Portable'' can be beaten in five days, seven counting the bonus areas, and nine counting the "DLC."

Main Worlds in Brief:
* Zone 1: A regular backyard-style grassland/small "forest." You're introduced to the primary colors of Pikmin here. To reflect its status as a warm tutorial Zone that slowly gets you in the hang of the game, as you go further down the Areas it will slowly lose that "enclosed backyard" atmosphere and eventually give off to the open plains, to the point where the boss fight overlooks a huge horizon of a grassy field. We'll say the boss is a Burrowing Snagret, something still simple to get in the hang of things. This is associated with either Red Pikmin or Pikmin in general, containing a large number of flowers and various plants.
* Zone 2: A desert area, specifically a drier part of the world by some rocks. You start out around a canyon area, where you're introduced to the game's two new types of Pikmin. Eventually you work your way out to the base of the rocks and find the boss of this region close by a more open area suffering from a mild sandstorm. This is associated with Yellow Pikmin, with a lot of background features consisting of really high ledges, a dry atmosphere (dry = easier for static electricity to be noticed instead of being dissipated), and some broken electronics may be lying around.
* Zone 3: Starts out in a nice, humid forest. In 3-1, you go on a path that eventually leads up to an overlook of a small pond (which is gigantic from a Pikmin's perspective). 3-2 focuses on the shore of that pond, where it's more established as the sort of "Water Zone." All subsequent Areas take place on top of something out in the middle of the pond. This may seem like the whole Zone might as well be completely limited to Blue Pikmin, but most of the places you'll explore are rather dry apart from what's blatantly out of bounds. It's no more "Blue Pikmin Only" than, say, the Distant Spring or the Perplexing Pool. For some reason, I like the idea of this, out of all environments, to emphasize how tiny the Pikmin are compared to their own world. In 3-1 and 3-2, there would be what looks like these huge holes dug by animals in inaccessable parts of the area, and on occasion when looking down into the lake you might see a huge shadow or something swim by. The boss will take place on a large cluster of lillypads at the dead center of the pond. Obviously, this is the Zone associated with Blues, and in addition to being by a giant pond, there's several puddles of harmlessly shallow water acting as decorations.
* Zone 4: This place is set out in a snow-covered tundra.
* Zone 5:

Bonus Zones:
* Zone 6:
* Zone 7:

Either DLC or, if the Idea Pisses You Off, Just More Bonus Zones That Have a Different Unlock Requirement Than "Finish the Game:"
* Zone 8: The "DLC" Zones contrast greatly with the post-game Zones. 6 and 7 are both bleak, ran down, dark even during day and nearly pitch-black at night. This mostly takes place on a huge rock. However, you can dig into little cracks and the like to find a number of bright, shining gems and crystals. The boss area is surrounded in a rainbow of various crystals all dotting the landscape, a little detail inspired by ''VideoGame/EpicBattleFantasy 4''. This is associated with Rock Pikmin.
* Zone 9: I want this to be sort of like the ''Pikmin'' equivalent of that [=PS1=] ''Frogger'' region in the clouds. Mostly for the whole "you're in a high place overlooking a huge landscape" asthetic. It's set in a large city-like area, always high on buildings or construction zones. You get a great overlook of the area around, and can even see the sun set in the background if you angle the camera closer to a shoulder view or use the first-person camera for snapshots. Air travel is emphasized here, by means of crossing huge gaps. This is also supposed to be a semi-relaxing area that focuses more on gimmick over brutal difficulty (it's easier than Zones 6 and 7, but isn't ''super'' easy or anything). This is associated with Winged Pikmin. In general, Zone 8 goes for more of a "look at the tiny inner beauty in these little things" while Zone 9 is "look at this amazing huge landscape you live in and admire the massive scale."

* ArcNumber:
** A literal example is how four reoccurs often in Arc 2. This arc spans four chapters (5-9), and each professor has something regarding fours involved, depending on whether or not the professor herself is included: Bubbles ultimately ends up with four "bodyguards," Leona's domain is divided into four sections (Leona herself being in charge of the fourth), Sonia has three "barriers" needed to be passed before reaching her, and Dian's domain was split into four sections from the beginning but ends up getting hijacked by a team led by four [=AIs=].
* EarnYourHappyEnding: The story isn't exactly brutally dark for the most part or anything, but the times do get rough, and the gang ''does'' have to trek through ''fourteen'' areas (fifteen if you count Paricutin's lava tubes and summit as seperate domains). In the end, while most of the characters [[spoiler:]]

* LiteralSplitPersonality: Happens to Hank in an early chapter. Splitting him among [...] and [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness "Season 1 and 2 Hank."]] The latter, by the way, is described as [[ArtEvolution "looking slightly older and more washed out,"]] [[CharacterizationMarchesOn has a higher temper, is willing to eat from a grill that doesn't use propane,]] and apparently more prone to saying [[FountainOfMemes "stupid stuff that people on the internet make fun of to no end."]]

Even more random bullshit idea throwing:

* Rose and Dove: Over-passiveness, creation, and support vs over-activeness, destruction, and selfishness
* Kathody and Searah: shoving a given "taste" on someone vs locking out others for not having that same "taste"
* Sandy and Cardia: Laid-back atittude vs overworking atittude
* Bubbles and Dian: Being overly asshole-ish vs being kind of a huge pushover
* Leona and Sonia: Arrogance of your work vs being too reluctant to show your work
* Wendy and Shannon: Not bothering to change the harsh truths of reality and instead embrancing the stereotypes from it vs trying to change it via artificial drug-like simulation; to a lesser extent selfish heroism vs selfless heroism
* Burnda and Burrda: Extrovert to the point of obnoxiousness vs introvert to the point of being damaging
* Soos and [=.GIFfany=]: Jesus vs Satan in the context of this story (Bill's obviously the "Satan" of canon, being an actual demon that makes deals and stuff). No, really, though this wasn't planned at first. Soos's Jesus parallels are already canon. (No, really.) In this story [=.GIFfany=] is a powerful figure that later uses a pitchfork as a weapon, basically collects various souls (the AI copies of professors who failed or refused to capture the humans), offers temptation,

None of this was planned at first (except Burnda/Burrda; but there was planned to be some paralleling between Leona/Sonia and Dian/Bubbles, because of the whole visual art vs musical art and acids vs bases)

Trying:
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: On the surface, this really seems like a typical redemption fic bordering on DracoInLeatherPants in [=.GIFfany=]'s case. If you dig down and consider the final line of the Official Ending, however, [[spoiler:it's implied that she was bullshitting her "redemption" and it was all one big chessmaster game. Note that it's stated in detail that the [=AIs=] consider "Acting" a stat that can be raised, they see it as the same thing as lying skills, and that near the end [=.GIFfany=] has maxed out stats in everything. ''Including'' "Acting."]] The short was, did she really start the Domain Test out of generocity for her other copies, then grew genuine sympathy as a result from watching the events and having a body capable of human feelings? Was this even more idealistic and she was capable of that without the black magic-created body? Or did she simply get the other copies just to repair herself, sent them on the Domain Test just so that she could say she tried to help them in return, come up with a way to send them off, then wait until the Pines were out of the picture (IE Dipper and Mabel going home after summer vacation, Stan and Ford traveling the world together) so that Soos would have even less help should she go on another rampage? Was her saying "[[spoiler:everyone is exactly where I want them to be]]," the final line in the entire story, (well, not counting the Special Ending) a WhamLine confirmation of this or just her being creepy by accident? Fan has been extremely silent on the matter: All he says amounts to "The story doesn't at any point just split her into a 'Good [=.GIFfany=]' and an 'Evil [=.GIFfany=]' because that would be stupid." And considering [[KillEmAll her actions]] in "Game Complete" were unambiguously evil and selfish...

[[folder:What About that Other Major ''Gravity Falls'' Thing That I'm Planning?]]

Inspired very, very loosely by ''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann'' and ''FanFic/TheLightOfCourage'', ''The Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage''

* BreatherEpisode: Chapter 8, at least as far as this {{Bathos}} story goes. You would not ''believe'' that a chapter beginning with a blood-covered monster that bites someone in half would end up being of the ''lightest'' chapters in the story, but the actual plot outside of that beginning turns out to be fairly lax. It's right before a two-parter about some SurrealHorror [[spoiler:copy of ''Ed, Edd n Eddy: The Mis-Edventures'']] threatening to tear the universe up that almost ''everybody'', even the final BigBad, is afraid of.
* DecoyProtagonist: At best, Dipper could roughly be considered the protagonist ''of the first half''. The true main character is [[spoiler:Mabel, the only one of the "Pines Quadruplets" to lack a journal, but makes up for it by being the only one of them with proper Spiral Power]].
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: As a result of the story undergoing a ''drastic'' change in plans during a long pause before Fan resumed work on it, the first two chapters -- the first one especially -- are very tonally different from the rest of the story. They also have a slightly bigger emphasis on the talking journals and the key hunting, both of which were originally going to be much bigger plot elements. In general, it was much looser with anything resembling a plot, had more of a MonsterOfTheWeek feel (though it was always intended that Nzyvo would gather various past supernatural characters outside of her personal QuirkyMinibossSquad, and that the ghosts would be the only ones recruited before she starts aformentioned QMS), and bordered more on being a SadistShow. Chapters 3 onward had more of the usual feel of "A story that wants itself to be taken seriously, but can't" as with most other ''SBIG'' installments (such as ''naruto the guy with the ninja'' and ''Kids Fight the Zombies''), instead of "General bad crap just happening."
* NakedPeopleAreFunny:
** Soos gets his clothing destroyed a ''lot'', especially in the second half, and he does not mind this ''at all''. At one point he flies naked just like Patrick in the ''Spongebob'' movie.
** Stan's "Bill cosplay" in chapter 4. He wears replicas of Bill's hat, bowtie, and holds a replica of his cane. And wears absolutely nothing else. He spends the whole chapter like this.
** Chapter 8 in general might as well be "The Naked Chapter" with the exception of the primary antagonist group.
* ObligatorySwearing: Even by SBIG standards. Seriously, almost everybody swears in this story. [[spoiler:It's nothing short of amazing that this is a chronological sequel to ''Spooky's House'', since ''Spooky's'' has almost no swearing whatsoever]].
* OnlySaneMan: Of all characters, the Trickster tends to make more sense than anyone else in this story.
* RunningGag:
** It seems like all the members of Nzyvo's QuirkyMinibossSquad (except the Shape Shifter, [[spoiler:mostly because he was killed very early into the story]]) have some alien standards for what's attractive. The Trickster is at one point trying to use pickup lines on some kind of candycane mascot. [=.GIFfany=] hits on a ''television'' at one point, apparently gets rejected, and when the television falls on her she calls it a "fat bitch." And the pterodactyl is described as "affectinly rubbing against" both a giant bone and a ''Transformers'' poster.
* SelfDeprecation:
** Nzyvo and [=.GIFfany=] discuss that the plot of ''FanFic/RunGifocalypse'', another ''Gravity Falls'' fan fic by the same author that was in-progress during the run of ''Journals'', would be paper thin. [=.GIFfany=] laughs when Nzyvo brings up rumors that there are "only fifteen copies" released to the public, and cites canonical evidence that would go against that (despite Fan himself saying that ''rungif'' "assumed" certain things, basically explaining the very same fridge logic that his own later story would try to use as evidence). When she ''does'' gather an army of copy, Soos suggests that they use different hair colors and names to tell one-another apart, but they remark that they are just fine with numbers. [[spoiler:The copies just end up fighting one-another, making the whole "team-up" plan completely useless. While Nzyvo does revive the one that was killed in canon, she quickly uses that copy to "replace" all the others, basically marking a return to the status quo again, as with the usual [=.GIFfany=]-Nzyvo adventures in chapters 3-5 (Both the "Creepypasta Sonic" and "Cybernetic upgrade" prior were hit with similar reset buttons. The only difference is that this genuinely ''is'' a different copy).]] Unlike the other times Fan mocks himself, however, the subject of his mockery was ''not'' an OldShame at the time (as of August 2016 it still isn't), but rather was at the top of his own "recommended list out of the very things I wrote."
* ShipSinking: Poor, ''poor'' Dipper. Let's count the ships sunk with him:
** [[spoiler:The end of chapter 5 reveals that he and Pacifica are genetically related, making things way too squicky for them to get involved in a relationship]].
** [[spoiler:Wendy literally tells him to fuck off in chapter 4]].
**
* TakeThat:
** Nzyvo is a general dig at very unoriginal characters or evil counterparts, and was inspired by a rather strange theory of there being a "secret clone" of Mabel that randomly pops in to replace her.
** Late into chapter 4, Gideon attempts to give Bill a physical form. However, this goes pretty horribly, and results in the creation of what's basically a giant middle finger at Bill's fandom portrayal. He ends up making "some bishonen guy" who quickly becomes obsessed with Dipper to the point of holding him at knife point and acting like he just needs to "woo" him over. Dipper eventually says that he ''prefers'' the original, triangular, maniac Bill to that one, and aformentioned Bill ends up blowing the copy up. TheStinger has something similar happening with [=.GIFfany=], getting a "horrible waifu clone" that the original quickly kills.
** [=.GIFfany=]'s brother by adoption is a Sonic lookalike with blood coming from his eyes that has an obsession with blood. His abilities range from the ''totally useful'' skill of killing fictional characters, to making harmless blood come out of things, to summoning ''plushies'' of himself. While he still proves to be somewhat dangerous, nobody actually takes him seriously. [[VideoGame/SonicExe Hrm...]]
** ''FanFic/TheLightOfCourage'' was one of the story's biggest "inspirations," though not in a positive way.
* TookALevelInBadass:
** All of the "Power" users when it comes to their own skills and their "Power of X" abilities. [[spoiler:Dipper starts out barely able to use his Power of Courage to ''teleport away'', and only in a set location that he was in before (working identically to Farore's Wind in ''Ocarina of Time'') but gains power over both storm and forest alike. Also, he masters its teleportation to the point where he can zip just about ''anywhere''. (Like Farore's Wind... in ''Super Smash Bros'', but on crack.) Nzyvo's skills are ''already impressive'', using a combination of mild Spiral Power with the Power of Power to set shit ablaze, but as the story goes on she becomes even ''more'' dangerous and more credible of a threat. Pacifica, just discovering about barriers and water-related powers, and Mabel... well, let's just say the Power of Heart mixes in ''very'' well with Spiral Energy, and she's single-handedly the whole reason why the town was able to right Mab''le'' in a galaxy-sized mecha]].
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Out of the QuirkyMinibossSquad and the GoldfishPooGang, [[spoiler:While Nzyvo, the Trickster, and [=.GIFfany=] of the former and Gideon of the latter survive to the end, and the Pterodactyl and Bill die at the halfway mark and near the end respectively, the Shape Shifter is killed off after only one chapter's worth of spotlight. Very early into the third chapter at that. Could have been worse for him: The original plan was that he was going to be killed off at the very end of the second chapter as part of Dipper being "motivational" and using a "courage punch."]]
* WholePlotReference: It ''really'' isn't obvious at first, but this loosely follows after the plot of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. For the first half, anyway. The second half features a large spike in originality.

----

The mission's pretty simple. You're playing as a figure codenamed the Liberator. You have to destroy all clothing. Not just on the planet. Not just in the solar system. Not even in the ''galaxy''. Stop until all that evil clothing is destroyed.

Complicating things is that, much like [[VideoGame/{{OFF}} one of this game's inspirations]], the world it takes place in is utterly bizarre and barely fits in with our own. Unlike ''OFF'', everything's clearly there in some form -- you start out in Earth, which even has its own CN Tower (which is also the setting for the first boss fight). The differences are... well... you're in some kind of massive AlternateHistory where just about every body in space larger than a "regular" asteroid (and some "small" asteroids as well) has at ''least'' one humanoid sapient race on it, and they all basically intermixed with Earth's pretty well as of the day the game takes place. The ''past'', specifically October 26th of 2001[[note]]The release date of ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}}'' in Japan[[/note]]. As a result of having zillions of alien cultures influencing it, Earth itself has gotten some pretty bizarre city designs. The reason ''why'' you're out to destroy clothing is because the Liberator's creator, a 60-something year-old known as the Professor, had done research and discovered a secret breed of unaging space Cockroaches that existed since the universe's early life are really using clothing as means to mind-control sapient life. Things like interuniversal travel, regions outside of any universe that lack sense, meeting "myths," etc are considered part of ordinary life in here, and the concept of "infinities" is discussed pretty often. This is just scratching the surface of the world's weirdness, but the line until it becomes spoiler-y is a bit blurred. Oh, and was it ever mentioned that the playable character is technically a ''flower'', and the gray humanoid you see for most of the game is really a sort of armored suit/mecha for them?

Thus is ''Destroy All Clothing in Existance!'', a SurrealHumor 16-bit RolePlayingGame that can best be described as a bizarre inverse of ''OFF'' mixed with a bizarre inverse of ''Anime/KillLaKill''. It's an... odd title that definitely doesn't take itself seriously at all --

[[folder:The Liberator]]

The central player character of the game. A project by the Professor, an artificial wax soldier created to "liberate" people by slicing off the evil confines secretly placed on them by the Cockroach army. Actually a sapient flower placed into said wax body, used for carrying out the mission.

* CatchPhrase: Prefaces all battles with "Prisoners Spotted. Quantity:" Followed by the number of enemies. [[spoiler:The exceptions are the fights with Roylel, which is just "?," and the Giant Spiders, which is "!!!!!!!!!!"]]
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Thanks to their very isolated raising conditions and being raised by a conspiracy theorist, they're not the best at understanding certain situations.
** When finding Roach at CN Tower, he points to a sign reading "No shirt, no shoes, no service." Liberator somehow mistakes this as saying someone must fit all or none of the requirements. Them not wearing a shirt or shoes is obvious, but then they add on "...So I should refuse to give you service? Because that's what I'm doing right now, man."
** When you first encounter [[spoiler:a Giant Spider in the cleared areas]], Liberator's first concern is that [[spoiler:their silk may bypass the clothing-being-destroyed-by-the-Freedom-Towers, and not that there's spiders the size of buses roaming around]].
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: Every feature of their wax body (not the flower itself, which even has blatantly green petals) is some shade of gray. You have some degree of chosing ''which'' shades of gray, but ultimately the Liberator is a pretty monochrome character, and the only ''major'' monochrome character of note. [[spoiler:This is an early sign that he's connected to Roylel, as she's similarly just white. When you finally encounter another character with just as much of a limited palette, then you know something's off]].
* EideticMemory: When meeting with Sarai for the first time just before the World 3 boss, they instantly know she's a nudist from the start, since they have an eidetic memory and remember every single liberation target.
* {{Expy}}: Of the Batter from ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}''. They're both monochromatic, ''really'' devoted to their mission, and
* ImprobableWeaponUser: A giant sewing needle, which can only cut clothes.
* TheNudifier: Yep, it's their goal and the goal of the whole game, as stated clearly in the title. You cut the clothing off of random civilians for enemy encounters, and after beating a boss the whole overall setting of the world is nudified thanks to Freedom Towers.
* PurelyAestheticGender: Can be male or female, and this has no impact on anything gameplay or story-related.
* StrongFleshWeakSteel: Compared to the Assists. Either the Liberator's body is made out of some strong wax, or the Assists are made out of some weak metal. By default, they take the same amount of damage from attacks.
* TechnicalPacifist: The Liberator doesn't want to ''kill'' anybody or even hurt them. However, they won't stop hacking at people until they're rendered naked. They are legitimately shocked when [[spoiler:FAST]] is blown up after his optional battle. [[spoiler:This is thrown out the window with Roylel, though given how she threatened the Liberator's father figure and friends, she had it coming. Also, Roylel ''is'' clothing itself, which complicates things a little bit]].
* TomatoInTheMirror: [[spoiler:Liberator's wax body was made animate by a thread from the Massive Hat. Which is technically clothing]].
* TotallyRadical: Some of their dialogue crosses into this.
* VirtualPaperDoll: You can pick the Liberator's gender, hairstyle, very general build, etc as you please. Oddly for a game by [=TooMuchDeepWater=] (a guy known for being [[AuthorAppeal rather obsessed with]] colorful things, full rainbows/spectrums, etc), you're ''not'' free to change much of their color.

[[folder:The Professor]]

A man who, after discovering the truth about the Cockroaches and clothing in his early thirties, retreated to a hidden base he set up in Africa to hide out from an oncoming "apocalypse." A year later, he briefly peeked out of the shelter to see that, no, the Cockroaches have ''not'' turned the world into pure anarchy, and decided that there is still time to save existance. He spent the next few decades of his life experimentally creating the Liberator, the first (known) sapient form of life that was not derived from a humanoid construct. He raised the Liberator as a sort of soldier that would go out and prevent this supposed "apocalypse" from happening by slowly making more and more of the multiverse safe.

* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: That naked aging guy who had a laughably thin, hole-riddled theory about clothes being a conspiracy from immortal space cockroaches to control all life in the multiverse? Turns out to be totally correct. [[spoiler:The only thing he didn't account for was how ''clothing itself'' is also in on this, namely as it's all one sentient being known as Roylel]].
* TheOneGuy: If you chose Liberator to be female, he's the only major male character involved in the liberation project. (The Assists being simple robots.)

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Assists]]

A pentet of large, automated tools that help the Liberator out during their journey. For some reason, you can only have one of them out at a time.

* ColorCodedCharacters: Red is for offense (Thumell), yellow for health (Dexin), green for skill (Centrie), blue for speed (Sibang), and pink for status effects (Plinklee).
* ThemeNaming: Their names are all corruptions of fingers on the hand.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Kengrzee AKA "Paypay"]]

A traveling merchant, and your only ally that actively, frequently wears clothing. She appears shortly after you leave the Lab, and sells you items dressed in a spitefully heavy suit. While her prices always remain the same, she adds more to the items and equipment she sells in each subsequent appearance, so be sure to check on her often.

* {{Foil}}: Spends most of the game only found in pre-liberated areas, until [[spoiler:the Reveal with Roylel actually being all clothing]] and shows a remarkable calmness even in dire situations. This is in contrast to the Professor, who spends most of the game in ''post-''liberated areas and is paranoid at almost everything.
* OddFriendship: Goodness, she does ''not'' start off on friendly terms with the Liberator. The way she bargains with them to keep her clothing by saying she would refuse to sell if she was "Liberated," to her trollish atittude that overall makes Liberator question how much they really are devoted to their mission.
* OhCrap: She loses her cool after finding out [[spoiler:that all clothing is an extension of Roylel's being, meaning that she was basically "wearing" parts of that creepy corpse-like woman the entire time. She proceeds to instantly throw off all of her clothes and ''sets them on fire'', while saying "NO NO NO, GO AWAY YOU MONSTER THING!"]]
* PhraseCatcher: Four seperate times in the game, she manages to make Liberator grunt a frustrated "MMMMMMMMM..."
* TeleportSpam: Does this on her introduction to avoid the Liberator's... er... liberation.
* {{Troll}}: Seems to enjoy annoying or teasing the Liberator whenever she can.
-->'''Paypay, when met in World 2:''' Isn't Earth's Original Moon the best? Love that view of that whole planet you just set free?\\
'''Liberator:''' Woah, you put on a new outfit pretty quick. And an identical one, too.\\
'''Paypay:''' Oh, this? I watched your fight with Roach, then left right before you activated the Freedom Tower.\\
'''Liberator:''' ...So I wasn't tricking you into getting hit indirectly, so I wouldn't have to face the moral dilema of putting my mission on hold in order to make it easier against what the Professor wanted?\\
'''Paypay:''' I'll tell you what: If you can hit me with a blast from those, I'll still sell you everything. In fact, I'll throw half charge off! But I have access to a large chunk of existance. Way more than you'll ever explore. I can just keep zipping there while you...\\
'''Paypay:''' Well, right now you're basically going to Alpha Centauri on foot!\\
'''Liberator:''' Uh... huh...\\
'''Paypay:''' So, wanna buy?\\
'''Liberator:''' MMMMMMMMM...
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Isn't phased even by the things that ''would'' be considered unusual in the game's world. Like finding out the truth about the Cockroaches. [[spoiler:She finally gets a strong reaction when she finds out that her favorite outfit -- and all of her clothing -- was an extension of Roylel, capable of spying on her]].
* AVillainNamedZrg: A friendly alien, but it's the same principle, since her real name (IE not her "merchant name") has all three letters in it, one right after another.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sarai]]

A nudist engineer working at a university within the Local Bubble (World 3). Every third world, she upgrades your outdated cell phone given by the Professor.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Her Scan during the fake battle at the "Prep for World 7" sequence shows that she actually has the highest attack stat out of anybody in the game -- at '''40'''[[note]]The health and defense measured are the health and defense ''of the clothing'', but the attack power is all on the person themselves[[/note]]. By contrast, Preacher Roach, the strongest boss in the whole game (Blueoach is intentionally underwhelming and [[spoiler:Roylel]] utilizes [[spoiler:one hit per frame]] which means on paper her attack is ''1''), has only 12. Even some of the "extra" powerful enemies don't go higher than 17. [[spoiler:When Roylel has all of the Liberator's friends and allies trapped in the final battle, she's the only one that manages to set herself free, and briefly helps out during the fight]].
* BrainyBrunette: She's an engineer, and about the second smartest of the main cast, only behind the Professor (and the Professor is offset by being pretty nuts).
* {{Expy}}: Seems to be something of an adult [[VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac Eve.]] She's named after a religious figure (Sarah, the mother of Isaac...), bears a bit of a visual resemblance to her, had some ''slight'' issues with her mother (but in her case it's more of a number of trivial disagreements, like what carreer she should go for, nothing as bad as attempted murder), and had stuggled with gender identity issues at a younger age. Just beofre the midboss of World 11, which is basically the game world's version of the devil, she'll call the Liberator just to say "You have ''no idea'' how bad I wanted to see you do this" while grinning. [[spoiler:One of the many, ''many'' endbosses in ''Binding of Isaac'' is Satan himself, with a more powerful form known as Mega Satan]].
* GuestStarPartyMember: Teams up with you and follows you around during World 10-1 and 10-2, which also happens to be where the game's plot finally gets a bit more depth than just "Work your way to the Freedom Tower, beat the Roach at the end, repeat." This ends with an UnexpectedShumpLevel where she turns your phone into a jetpack and works with your active Assist to blast down some Pilots on their clothing jetpacks.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: At the end of the World 10 shooter game, she, Liberator, and the active Assist all end up falling on the ground. While all three of them land comically (including the Assist, a giant metal head-hand thing), she lands on her face with her ass in the air.
* {{Transsexual}}: A trans woman, both according to WordOfGod and implied in-game when she quotes her mother from a younger age. ("Most of my early life, she was trying to spoil me too much. From 'my baby boy doesn't need perfect grades in elementary school here have these toys instead,' to 'my tween girl should go for a relaxing class' to 'oh, my baby girl, try to pick a fun elective in high school.' I, uh. I liked to challenge myself. We disagreed on that front there.")
* ZeroEffortBoss: When she proposes a compromise to clothing, in the form of leaf-garments, Liberator goes into a fake battle with her. Here, Liberator will end up destroying the garment in one attack, and Sarai will refuse to attack you (instead staring in confusion).

!!! Antagonists

[[folder:Antagonists -- The Cockroaches]]

!! In General

!! Roach

-->''"Welcome to Canada. Now, if you would, please get the heck out."''

The first Cockroach you encounter and the boss of World 1. He's been sent to Earth after the Roaches have narrowed down that the one rebel attempting to spread "liberation" came from that planet overall. He doesn't actually find the Liberator until they reached Canada, where the Freedom Tower for the planet lies.

!! Armored Roach

-->''"BWAH HA HA! Fear me, Liberator! I'm afraid your journey has to end here!"''

A Cockroach with turtle-like features that fights within the Sun's plasma itself, and the boss of World 2.

!! Rising Roach

-->''"You? Aw man, you're killing my spook. I mean, nothing ruins the scare factory more than a crazy [man/woman] running around making everyone naked."''

An overseer of the undead that roams in the graveyards along by the Local Bubble, and the boss of World 3.

!!

!! Industrial Roach

-->''"Full steam ahead! Mostly just because I like steam..."''

A part-cyborg Cockroach that secretly oversees a particular factory at the core of the Milky Way Galaxy, acting as the boss of World 5.

!!

!!

!!

!! Quarterback Roach

-->''"Alright units! Remember the plan! Blue fifty one! Eight reddy-green! Hike! Preferably down that hiking trail!"''

The boss of World 9, a massive sports fan who set up a huge triple planet-like stadium in Laniakea.

* TheLadette: Loves sports, especially football, and even fights you in a football uniform.

!! Sailor Roach

-->''"Are you ready to see the power of a '''real''' dean?"''

A "magical Cockroach" guarding the Freedom Tower in the depths of World 10, at the center of the massive supercluster-spanning school system. She's a self-proclaimed "dean" but isn't actually one legally, thanks to no legal system knowing she even exists (at first, and as with the other Roaches).

!! Preacher Roach

-->''"May the watchers of the souls realize what you are doing is terrible!"''

A member of the Roach army impersonating a religious speaker, holding his place as guarding the Freedom Tower in Heaven, part of the Afterlife of Earth's universe. He's the boss of World 11.

!! Blueoach

-->''"So... you might be a bit disappointed in this but... here we go..."''

A blue-green PaletteSwap of Roach, and supposedly the leader of the entire army. He always guards the Freedom Tower that controls the fate of all clothing in the infinite multiverse/the spaces between universes/all of existance.

* ButtMonkey: For the leader of the Roaches, he has a laughably easy boss fight (assuming you're not doing a LowLevelRun)

[[/folder]]

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''' (The Final Boss)]]

!! Roylel

A strange monochromatic woman that appears fairly suddenly after beating World 5. She appears with weak stats, vanishes after being hit, and laughs about being closer around Liberator than they think.

It turns out that all clothing in existance is really some sort of part of her, derived from and given life by something called the Massive Hat -- an entity deep in the Interplane of existance that is immune to the Liberator's activated Freedom Towers and can keep all clothing inside immune as well. Taking advantage of this, Roylel survives the Liberator extending the final Tower's infinite reach and heads back towards the lab to try to capture all of Liberator's friends. She serves as the real final boss of the game, after an intentionally underwhelming battle with a color swap of the first boss.

* BackFromTheDead: If you pick "I am the exception," the Cockroaches sneak off some of Liberator's Massive Hat fiber and attempt to re-create a form of clothing immune to the Freedom Towers. The ending of this shows some freakish patchwork laughing with Roylel's exact laugh, implying that her last words about coming back were true.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Implied.
-->'''Roylel:''' When you hear infinite thoughts... infinite secrets across your customers... it all starts to blur together... you think things... you feel things... you feel everything, about everything. And then... you feel nothing. Kind of. Just boredom. Nice to have you to shake things up a little with your propaganda stunt, [brother/sister]!
* CombatSadomasochist: It's implied that she ''does'' feel pain, yet she sure as hell doesn't mind losing pieces of herself (likely because she's pretty good at regenerating quite a lot of mass in a short time) and definitely wants to inflict pain in the Liberator and their friends.
* DeaderThanDead: Maybe. Freedom Towers can also affect the afterlife, so clothing produced there would be destroyed. It's unclear if she even has a soul, let alone if the soul itself would be considered clothing. So... by destroying the last Massive Hat fiber in her, Liberator might just erase her from existance. Though if you return to World 11 in the PlayableEpilogue, Paypay will comment about Roylel may have a ghost there afterall, and is just hiding.
* DeathByAThousandCuts: Even in her powered up form, she still only does one damage. The difference is that she utilizes the "one hit point per frame" mechanic of the Children from this game, and Sans from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''.
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The only major character outside of the Liberator to be some form of grayscale (in this case, white, while the Liberator can be customized to be various shades of gray). This is one of the earliest hints that they are both connected -- in this case, they were both given some form of motion/life by the Massive Hat.
* {{Expy}}: Basically a four-way cross between [[Anime/KillLaKill Nui Harime,]] (her abilities, uncanny quality, popping out of nowhere, partly her true nature) [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Roxy Lalonde,]] (appearance) [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} Flowey,]] (partly personality, similar boss fight) and a rotting corpse (appearance).
* FinalBoss: The actual one, after Blueoach was only a RedHerring. Note that she is not a TrueFinalBoss -- no matter what you do, you end up facing her anyway.
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** In a very early cutscene just before heading out to World 1, look on the shelves in the Professor's laboratory. There's a very suspicious-looking doll there that wasn't there before, ''and isn't there in following cutscenes''. Roylel strongly resembles this doll.
** In some of the detailed cinematics, you may notice that a large number of the "standard" blue or yellow outfits a large number of the civilians wear has eyes on them. Yep, clothing itself can be looking at you.
** Your enemies for most of the game are basically ordinary people, or at least close to them. They have jobs, some skills related to the jobs, are seen in the overworld before battle, show energy... regardless of how far you go from Earth or how weird the alien designs are (and to drive the point home, there's always at least regular humans mixed in too), they're still just people. (Albeit ones that are a little ''too'' quick to attack the Liberator.) Roylel, however, does not move in normal combat, her encounters are disguised as RandomEncounters (in reality they're scripted), and overall has a large number of inhuman qualities to her. She's not really a person like these civilians are, but rather some kind of near-immortal clothing abomination.
** She describes Liberator as "A [brother/sister] that never gives up!" in her first appearance.This first comes off as her using it in a religious way or as in "group member." Since they're both given animation thanks to the Massive Hat, they could be considered siblings -- at least, Roylel does consider them to be, which explains why she calls Liberator a brother or sister but nobody else.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Her spying is definitely creepy as hell, but since it's just part of her biology and she doesn't seem to be actually getting a sick out of seeing the people who wear her naked, it does seem kind of hard to actually pin her as "evil" at first. Then, out of pure boredom, she ends up "challenging" the Liberator by threatening to kill all of their friends...
* HumanoidAbomination: While her story is vaguely something Earthly-related (sentient clothing), almost nothing else about her is. Because of the bizarre way this game's world works, the amount of clothing on the amount of sapient life is infinite, and as a result she's technically infinite in size until World 12 is liberated. An already eldritch concept that she repeatedly brings up a lot, even talking about how creepy it is to "suddenly feel limits and finity" when World 12 is cleared. She does a lot of fairly inhuman things in nature, and she ultimately came from some kind of cosmic hat thing.
* KnightOfCerebus: Turns from a quirky, lighthearted SurrealHumor RPG to a paranoia-inducing SurrealHorror-fest whenever she's around.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Played for horror, considering how she basically shrugs off having increasingly large portions of her disintegrate as you liberate each world, culminating in ''an infinite amount of her'' fading away in shreds at once as everything except the bubble protected by her Massive Hat thread is gone. In fact, she simply counts how long it takes before "all possible locations of clothes" are gone.
* MarathonBoss: Has ''Five million hit points'', in a game that otherwise uses ''VideoGame/PaperMario''-level stats. Thankfully, you end up getting the ability to ''divide her hit points by ten per attack'', which makes the battle go by much quicker.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign:
** In regular gameplay, she's the only enemy that never moves during a fight. Even the Giant Spiders have ''some'' kind of limited movement, and other enemies can even have HyperactiveSprites.
** During her ''real'' boss fight, she ends up invoking a number of realistic yarn imagry.
* SinisterSurveillance: Those clothes you probably have on your back? Good thing this game isn't real, otherwise she's making "eyes" out of those to spy on your right now. And you'll have no way of knowing this until it's too late.
* SurrealHorror: Her EstablishingCharacterMoment is her pulling a random encounter on you at the end of World 5 out of nowhere, then seemingly disintegrating in one hit. You don't get the proper answer to this until World ''10'', when she appears again mid-level. In her boss fight, she turns into a giant, photo-realistic plushie that pulls shot guns out of her mouth and swings around on vine branches, among many other bizarre attacks. And she talks about "being infinite in size" and the like, as if it's no big deal for her.
* TakeThat: Water did not like Roxy Lalonde for whatever reason. Keep that in mind and look at pretty much the rest of Roylel's entire trope list. If Roylel is counted as a Roxy incarnation and not as her own character, this isn't even the first time Water turned her into some kind of cat-eyed zombie monster. Or the second (but one of them was a strange "nightmare clone" created by an alien flower).
* UncannyValley: Invoked. She intentionally takes on a lifeless looking, rotting corpse of a design and does creepy things to test how much people still trust clothes after she gives TheReveal.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: This RPG is a very lighthearted one, set in a very technologically advanced and accepting utopia where an infinite amount of aliens and fantasy creatures are just a part of day-to-day life. Nobody really dies during the bulk of the game (unless you count FAST), and even the main bosses aren't "evil secret conspiracy controllers" so much as they are "kind of just making a dishonest profit and being a little invasive." Then comes Roylel, where the clothes themselves are stalking you, she tries to kill Liberator's friends, and uses a large amount of SurrealHorror imagry during her fight.
* WalkingSpoiler: The only character in the game that is this for 100% plot purposes, instead of just being a surprise boss character. Up to World 5-4, you're led to just thinking that it's only the Cockroaches you have to worry about. Then she appears, and you're left wondering about her for a good chunk of the game. Then her re-appearance in World 10-3 recontextualizes a good chunk of what happened earlier in the game... she's also the final boss.
* ZeroEffortBoss: In her appearances in Worlds 5 and 10. She has one hit point, only hits you with a weak attack for one damage, and no defense. Attack once, and just like that, she's gone just as suddenly as she came. Subverted in that if you goof off during the fight, she will launch an unavoidable attack that slowly drains away your health until you die.

[[folder:"Regular" Encounter Enemies/Civilians]]

!! Enemies in General

General format here is that the first line underneath the name of the enemies is their Scan description, with any necessary additional info (likely resulting from the Scan description being either vague or downright lying) being in the lines below.

* AmbiguouslyHuman: Because their traits are picked from a pretty extensive RNG (except for scripted, specific mook battles that have a cutscene beforehand -- so that the characters match up with their appearance in the cutscene), it's possible to get some enemies that look like they could be fully human, but the exact case isn't clear. Since Scan does ''not'' tell you an enemy's species, only the named characters or ones that are important in some way are named.

!! Introduced in World 1

!!! Children

Annoying training enemies.

* TheGoomba: The first enemy type you encounter, and the weakest in the entire game.

!!! House-Parents

Probably angry that you attack their kids earlier or something. I dunno.

!!! Office Workers

Have a rather boring job.

!!! Cops

People in uniform. Wait, uniform? You know the drill.

!!! Seniors

Beware their magic hits!

* BossInMooksClothing: Just one of them spells trouble. A full crowd of eight is tougher than the game's final boss.
* MightyGlacier: Have some of the slowest speeds of any enemy in the game, but hit ''hard'' and have pretty high health.

!! Introduced in World 2

!!! Cat Trainers

No, the cat's fur does not count as clothing.

!!! Teenagers

Horrible abominations from the darkest depths of the awfulest either dimensional pockets. They skate on your lawn and never follow the rules...

!!! Dragon Trainers

No, the dragon's scales do not count as clothing.

!!! Knights

Rather outdated suited warriors.

Smell that fresh industry smoke!

!!! Sailors

Employees of the spanning-university across the Universe Observable-Sphere.

* SailorFuku: The uniform of all of them.
* UniqueEnemy: They're only encountered in World 10. While there's a reason why they aren't encountered ''later'' (their whole fighting unit is disbanded after Sailor Roach is defeated; unlike the Guardians, who kind of operate on their own based on their respective afterlife), it doesn't really explain why they're not faced earlier, even under rare encounters.

More clothing showoff-ers. Are you getting close?

Huh. These people would have fit more in that sports-themed world... what was it... World 9, right?

!!! Nudists

Hey! Buddies!

These appear very, very rarely in both liberated and un-liberated worlds, but are slightly more common in the latter (which is ''definitely'' a good thing). They can't be attacked, and don't attack you. Instead, they hand out items.

* HelpfulMook: Toss you items or money randomly. In fact, they don't even attack.
* MetalSlime: Oddly, they're pretty rare, even though liberating an area eventually turns almost everyone in it into a nudist. [[spoiler:They're probably scared off by the giant spiders]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Couple]]

A zombie-Martian couple that spend a good chunk of World 3 being separated and want to be reunited.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''' (Cleared Area Enemies)]]

!! The Giant Spiders

AAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

The enemies that roam liberated areas. Each world has its own Giant Spider design, but they're mostly pretty similar apart from stats and them gaining one new move roughly every three worlds.

* BossInMooksClothing: They bear extremely powerful stats, and hit like a truck with a '''starting''' attack power of ''7''. Additionally, you cannot run away from them. While Liberator can get to a point where they can trivialize these things near the end of the game (yes, even the World 11 variants), towards the beginning you're just better off not returning to the worlds you've already cleared. No wonder why the Professor still hides out in his shelter even after the whole planet is made clothing-free.
* {{Expy}}: Of the [[spoiler:Secretaries]] from ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}''. They're both extremely powerful enemies that have a more realistic design to them which appear in areas that have already been beaten. And, while later it turns out to not be the case for this game, at first this implies that [[spoiler:the presense of the Giant Spiders means that the Liberator's mission isn't as good as you would think it is.]]
* FakeUltimateMook: The ones in World 11 are exceptionally huge, but by that point in the game it's likely that your rather quadratic leveling-up curve has long passed over their very slow, very ''linear'' "world-by-world power build." This was apparently intentional.
* GiantSpider: It's right there in the name.
* HardLight: Stated to be some kind of physical hologram projection from the Cockroaches.
* JumpScare: They're random encounters in a game that otherwise uses ''Paper Mario'' overworld-enemies, and have intentionally uncanny designs that can cause a bit of a startle. Everything about them just screams "KILL IT RIGHT NOW" (even their ''own Scan description'' is simply a scream, for all eleven varieties), which you unfortunately ''can't'' early on because they pack some pretty high stats.
* LostForever: Vanish after you liberate World 12, as Blueoach was their creator and he admits defeat after you beat him in battle there. This also means that World 12 lacks a Giant Spider variation.
-->'''Game Text After Clearing World 12:''' Also, All Giant Spiders have been exterminated. ''Thank God.''
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: The ones in Worlds 1-3 look extremely realistic in a game that otherwise mocks up simple 16-bit graphics. Once you "get used to that," Worlds 4-6 shake things up with weird, abstract, sketchy spiders. Then in Worlds 7-9 they have a faux-CGI effect. World 10 uses cardboard cut-outs, and World 11 goes back to the photo-realistic images.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''' (Bonus Boss 1)]]

!! Santa Claus

Yes, Saint Nick himself is one of your targets for liberation. Well, he does wear that big red coat, doesn't he? Normally a random encounter, but if you lose to him at a low enough level, he'll offer you a Santa Pass that will let you refight him. Not to worry, as by late-game he should be easy enough to defeat.

* BadSanta: Subverted -- he isn't exactly ''evil'', he just wants to see if you're good enough to end up "liberating" him as well.
* LostForever: Just with the other bonus bosses, he's only fightable in areas that have not been liberated yet. If you cleared all twelve worlds, he can't be faced.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''' (Bonus Boss 2)]]

!! FAST

A randomly-appearing wolf-like creature who, as his name implies, has a high speed stat. He appears to be a MetalSlime at first that's very prone to running away, but if you actually hit him he'll turn into quite the punch-packing bonus boss.

* BewareTheSillyOnes: Like all BonusBoss[=es=], he looks like a joke but he packs a huge punch.
* DefeatEqualsExplosion: He explodes when defeated. His last line of dialogue implies that he was actually detonated by some kind of higher power, but this isn't clear.
* {{Expy}}: Resembles [[Memes/SonicTheHedgehog Sanic.]]
* KilledOffForReal: Notably, he's the only character aside from the true BigBad to end up dying. Although in his case, he ends up randomly exploding for no reason. The Liberator did ''not'' plan this to happen.
* LostForever: Once you clear the whole game, as there are no more possible places he can show up (he only appears in un-liberated areas).

[[/folder]]

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''' (Bonus Boss 3)]]

!! Lucy

An animate skeleton that forms once you collect all of the bones lying around various areas and then assemble them at command, assuming you still have some worlds left un-liberated. She claims to be the source of all sapient life in existance, using her bone structure to prove it.

* LostForever: Cannot be fought during the PlayableEpilogue or after clearing World 12. As her battle involves liberating her from her clothing, and you have ended up getting rid of all clothing in existance by that point (except for, between the former and the latter, [[spoiler:the sphere Roylel made using the Massive Hat, but summoning her ''on top of'' battling Roylel would be so stupid that the game doesn't even let you do it]]).
* MeaningfulName: Named after the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucy_(Australopithecus) australopithecus fossil.]] Confusingly, she claims that she had that name "since creation," and that those "darn excavators stole it because of that stupid song," implying that in-universe the fossils were named after her instead of the other way around.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Predates humanity and all the other humanoid species, which is basically all of sapient life in the game's world (with the exceptions of the Liberator, whose true form is a flower, and [[spoiler:Roylel]]. Possibly [[spoiler:FAST]] as well, we have no idea what the hell he is).
* SmallNameBigEgo: Oh sweet fucking ''Jesus'', "arrogant" doesn't even ''begin'' to describe her.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''']]

!! The Massive Hat

A cosmological entity speculated to be older than existance itself, and certainly older than Earth's universe.

* CutsceneBoss: Though you do technically fight it as it's fused with Roylel.
* ShoutOut: Resembles [[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Ezekiel's]] teal toque.

----

!! Trying to do Worlds... [sic]

# Earth
# Solar System
# Local Bubble?
# Orion Arm?
# Milky Way Galaxy
# Local Group
# Local Sheet?
# Virgo Supercluster
# Laniakea
# Observable Universe?
# Universe -- Actually, one of infinite universes where Earth is (This world also includes the universe's afterlife)
# Beyond, AKA Existance, AKA for the boring cliche sci-fi people "Multiverse"

Generally I want it to be so that each world has a sort of "center" that you end up warping to to be the boss. With World 2, it's the Sun. With World 5, it's the galactic core. Exceptions are World 1 (while it would establish the general "there's society everywhere" tone of the game to head to the core, no, you're going to Canada for that one) and World 12 (there is no "center" or "edge" to the multiverse, just a certain checkpoint where the Roaches set up their main base at). So basically no "this group of stars, then the group of group of stars that that one orbits by" or whatever, because that would mean that the "center" in both cases would be the same location. This is also why Observable Universe has a questionmark by it even though it may seem like an obvious step in an escalating scale -- by definition the Observable Universe is what we... observe. A: This game takes place in a fuckin' nuts world where instantanous travel is absolutely normal, so the limit to what can be observed increases pretty much infinitely. And B: Even if that was somehow ignored, the center of that would logically be Earth if by "observable" you mean "observable to Earth."

Themes:
# Not much of a theme/closest to "normal" as the game gets
# Adventure themed, mild fantasy elements, action-y
# A lot more quiet, some mild "haunted" theme (towards the end you go to a graveyard)

''Human: Fall Flat'' is a [=3D=] SurrealHumor puzzle/platformer game by No Brakes Games, wherein you take control of an abstract stick figure-like man named Bob as he travels through his reoccuring dreams of falling. Bob is an ordinary human with no superpowers whatsoever, so he must rely on doing... er, ''totally normal human things'' in order to work his way through the various puzzles in his dream worlds and unlock the secrets in his mind.

The game currently only has a demo released, going up to the sixth level.

!! You Grabbed an Instructional Trope List. Hold on Tight!

* EasterEgg: Some areas have a number of hidden locations that don't really add anything except for decoration. Most areas also have some sort of dumpster, which can either be hidden or in plain sight.
* SuperDrowningSkills: The muddy waters in the sixth area function just like pits. Falling in one of them causes an instant respawn.

An old-fashioned propane salesman, a violent half-naked parody of anime schoolgirls, a nerdy physicist, a delinquent who started a world-changing rebel movement, an extremely powerful vampire, and a shape-shifting space rock all walk into a bar...

* BilingualBonus: The Japanese text on the scroll on the final episode roughly translates to "Super nude Brenda." So when Young Man was using that as proof that her name was apparently Margaret, it was either an error or he was full of shit.

The general idea is that this should feel like a spinoff with a little more of an action adventure edge, combining ''Pikmin 2''[='=]s adventure-themed atmosphere and heavier focus on combat (through the caves) and Olimar's presentation in the ''Super Smash Bros.'' games. Basically a compromise with those who want more combat-themed elements in, yet it's not part of the "main series" so that those who like the resource and time management will still have sequels to look foreward to. Ideally it should have enough of its identity that it doesn't feel like "A ''Pikmin'' game where your player character happens to be a Pikmin," but isn't so distinct that it comes off as something that could be better suited as being slapped a ''Mario'', ''Zelda'', ''Kirby'', or original IP title so that it's more recognizable in the former three cases, or more "true" to what it "really is" in the case of the latter.

!! TYPES

''Portable'' once again sees use of Red, Yellow, and Blue Pikmin. And just like ''2'' and ''3'', you have two additional main types to care about. Here's your total party of five for the majority of the game:
* Red Pikmin: Still the strongest, still the first introduced (in 1-1), their fire immunity is still mostly optional. With Purple Pikmin still out of the picture for most of the game, their priority is in their strength. Pack most of your team with them if you plan on spending time beating enemies.
* Yellow Pikmin: Introduced in 1-2.
* Blue Pikmin: Introduced in 1-3.
* Aqua Pikmin: Introduced in 2-1.

!! PETALS

One of the action adventure elements could be something along the lines of a stat upgrade system. In this case, you'll find large colored petals that each correspond to the main types of

!! WORLDS

''Portable'' has a ''Mario''-based level mechanic. To try to combat any limitations with the [=3DS=] or any of its potential successors, there's a total of five "Zones" scattered around the planet much like what we see in the main game's overworld, except each is divided into six "Areas." Roughly, the first of these areas should be more lax than the game's norm by that point (eg there will ''usually'' be a difficulty fall if you compare X-5 or X-6 to Y-1, Y obviously being the Zone after X, then Y-2 will be about on par with X-5) and the sixth would simply consist of a short path leading up to a boss area. If you have all Pikmin on the field with you, then you can simply fly over from one Area to another in an in-game instant, taking up none of your day time. However, going from one entire Zone to another would require ending the day for whatever reason. Let's just say your Onion is exceptionally slow and would need to spend the nights in flight mode over to the next Zone. Ideally, each Zone should be formatted in a way that speedrunners could clear them in one day with a little extra time to spare. This would be a sort of intended expert challenge, maybe even one that the game actually keeps track of should it be easy enough, to encourage time saving and add replay value. With that in mind, this means that ''Portable'' can be beaten in five days, seven counting the bonus areas, and nine counting the "DLC."

Main Worlds in Brief:
* Zone 1: A regular backyard-style grassland/small "forest." You're introduced to the primary colors of Pikmin here. To reflect its status as a warm tutorial Zone that slowly gets you in the hang of the game, as you go further down the Areas it will slowly lose that "enclosed backyard" atmosphere and eventually give off to the open plains, to the point where the boss fight overlooks a huge horizon of a grassy field. We'll say the boss is a Burrowing Snagret, something still simple to get in the hang of things. This is associated with either Red Pikmin or Pikmin in general, containing a large number of flowers and various plants.
* Zone 2: A desert area, specifically a drier part of the world by some rocks. You start out around a canyon area, where you're introduced to the game's two new types of Pikmin. Eventually you work your way out to the base of the rocks and find the boss of this region close by a more open area suffering from a mild sandstorm. This is associated with Yellow Pikmin, with a lot of background features consisting of really high ledges, a dry atmosphere (dry = easier for static electricity to be noticed instead of being dissipated), and some broken electronics may be lying around.
* Zone 3: Starts out in a nice, humid forest. In 3-1, you go on a path that eventually leads up to an overlook of a small pond (which is gigantic from a Pikmin's perspective). 3-2 focuses on the shore of that pond, where it's more established as the sort of "Water Zone." All subsequent Areas take place on top of something out in the middle of the pond. This may seem like the whole Zone might as well be completely limited to Blue Pikmin, but most of the places you'll explore are rather dry apart from what's blatantly out of bounds. It's no more "Blue Pikmin Only" than, say, the Distant Spring or the Perplexing Pool. For some reason, I like the idea of this, out of all environments, to emphasize how tiny the Pikmin are compared to their own world. In 3-1 and 3-2, there would be what looks like these huge holes dug by animals in inaccessable parts of the area, and on occasion when looking down into the lake you might see a huge shadow or something swim by. The boss will take place on a large cluster of lillypads at the dead center of the pond. Obviously, this is the Zone associated with Blues, and in addition to being by a giant pond, there's several puddles of harmlessly shallow water acting as decorations.
* Zone 4: This place is set out in a snow-covered tundra.
* Zone 5:

Bonus Zones:
* Zone 6:
* Zone 7:

Either DLC or, if the Idea Pisses You Off, Just More Bonus Zones That Have a Different Unlock Requirement Than "Finish the Game:"
* Zone 8: The "DLC" Zones contrast greatly with the post-game Zones. 6 and 7 are both bleak, ran down, dark even during day and nearly pitch-black at night. This mostly takes place on a huge rock. However, you can dig into little cracks and the like to find a number of bright, shining gems and crystals. The boss area is surrounded in a rainbow of various crystals all dotting the landscape, a little detail inspired by ''VideoGame/EpicBattleFantasy 4''. This is associated with Rock Pikmin.
* Zone 9: I want this to be sort of like the ''Pikmin'' equivalent of that [=PS1=] ''Frogger'' region in the clouds. Mostly for the whole "you're in a high place overlooking a huge landscape" asthetic. It's set in a large city-like area, always high on buildings or construction zones. You get a great overlook of the area around, and can even see the sun set in the background if you angle the camera closer to a shoulder view or use the first-person camera for snapshots. Air travel is emphasized here, by means of crossing huge gaps. This is also supposed to be a semi-relaxing area that focuses more on gimmick over brutal difficulty (it's easier than Zones 6 and 7, but isn't ''super'' easy or anything). This is associated with Winged Pikmin. In general, Zone 8 goes for more of a "look at the tiny inner beauty in these little things" while Zone 9 is "look at this amazing huge landscape you live in and admire the massive scale."

* ArcNumber:
** A literal example is how four reoccurs often in Arc 2. This arc spans four chapters (5-9), and each professor has something regarding fours involved, depending on whether or not the professor herself is included: Bubbles ultimately ends up with four "bodyguards," Leona's domain is divided into four sections (Leona herself being in charge of the fourth), Sonia has three "barriers" needed to be passed before reaching her, and Dian's domain was split into four sections from the beginning but ends up getting hijacked by a team led by four [=AIs=].
* EarnYourHappyEnding: The story isn't exactly brutally dark for the most part or anything, but the times do get rough, and the gang ''does'' have to trek through ''fourteen'' areas (fifteen if you count Paricutin's lava tubes and summit as seperate domains).

* LiteralSplitPersonality: Happens to Hank in an early chapter. Splitting him among [...] and [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness "Season 1 and 2 Hank."]] The latter, by the way, is described as [[ArtEvolution "looking slightly older and more washed out,"]] [[CharacterizationMarchesOn has a higher temper, is willing to eat from a grill that doesn't use propane,]] and apparently more prone to saying [[FountainOfMemes "stupid stuff that people on the internet make fun of to no end."]]

Even more random bullshit idea throwing:

* Rose and Dove: Over-passiveness, creation, and support vs over-activeness, destruction, and selfishness
* Kathody and Searah: shoving a given "taste" on someone vs locking out others for not having that same "taste"
* Sandy and Cardia: Laid-back atittude vs overworking atittude
* Bubbles and Dian: Being overly asshole-ish vs being kind of a huge pushover
* Leona and Sonia: Arrogance of your work vs being too reluctant to show your work
* Wendy and Shannon: Not bothering to change the harsh truths of reality and instead embrancing the stereotypes from it vs trying to change it via artificial drug-like simulation; to a lesser extent selfish heroism vs selfless heroism
* Burnda and Burrda: Extrovert to the point of obnoxiousness vs introvert to the point of being damaging
* Soos and [=.GIFfany=]: Jesus vs Satan in the context of this story (Bill's obviously the "Satan" of canon, being an actual demon that makes deals and stuff). No, really, though this wasn't planned at first. Soos's Jesus parallels are already canon. (No, really.) In this story [=.GIFfany=] is a powerful figure that later uses a pitchfork as a weapon, basically collects various souls (the AI copies of professors who failed or refused to capture the humans), offers temptation,

None of this was planned at first (except Burnda/Burrda; but there was planned to be some paralleling between Leona/Sonia and Dian/Bubbles, because of the whole visual art vs musical art and acids vs bases)

Trying:
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: On the surface, this really seems like a typical redemption fic bordering on DracoInLeatherPants in [=.GIFfany=]'s case. If you dig down and consider the final line of the Official Ending, however, [[spoiler:it's implied that she was bullshitting her "redemption" and it was all one big chessmaster game. Note that it's stated in detail that the [=AIs=] consider "Acting" a stat that can be raised, they see it as the same thing as lying skills, and that near the end [=.GIFfany=] has maxed out stats in everything. ''Including'' "Acting."]] The short was, did she really start the Domain Test out of generocity for her other copies, then grew genuine sympathy as a result from watching the events and having a body capable of human feelings? Was this even more idealistic and she was capable of that without the black magic-created body? Or did she simply get the other copies just to repair herself, sent them on the Domain Test just so that she could say she tried to help them in return, come up with a way to send them off, then wait until the Pines were out of the picture (IE Dipper and Mabel going home after summer vacation, Stan and Ford traveling the world together) so that Soos would have even less help should she go on another rampage? Was her saying "[[spoiler:everyone is exactly where I want them to be]]," the final line in the entire story, (well, not counting the Special Ending) a WhamLine confirmation of this or just her being creepy by accident? Fan has been extremely silent on the matter: All he says amounts to "The story doesn't at any point just split her into a 'Good [=.GIFfany=]' and an 'Evil [=.GIFfany=]' because that would be stupid." And considering [[KillEmAll her actions]] in "Game Complete" were unambiguously evil and selfish...

[[folder:What About that Other Major ''Gravity Falls'' Thing That I'm Planning?]]

Inspired very, very loosely by ''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann'' and ''FanFic/TheLightOfCourage'', ''The Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage''

* BreatherEpisode: Chapter 8, at least as far as this {{Bathos}} story goes. You would not ''believe'' that a chapter beginning with a blood-covered monster that bites someone in half would end up being of the ''lightest'' chapters in the story, but the actual plot outside of that beginning turns out to be fairly lax. It's right before a two-parter about some SurrealHorror [[spoiler:copy of ''Ed, Edd n Eddy: The Mis-Edventures'']] threatening to tear the universe up that almost ''everybody'', even the final BigBad, is afraid of.
* DecoyProtagonist: At best, Dipper could roughly be considered the protagonist ''of the first half''. The true main character is [[spoiler:Mabel, the only one of the "Pines Quadruplets" to lack a journal, but makes up for it by being the only one of them with proper Spiral Power]].
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: As a result of the story undergoing a ''drastic'' change in plans during a long pause before Fan resumed work on it, the first two chapters -- the first one especially -- are very tonally different from the rest of the story. They also have a slightly bigger emphasis on the talking journals and the key hunting, both of which were originally going to be much bigger plot elements. In general, it was much looser with anything resembling a plot, had more of a MonsterOfTheWeek feel (though it was always intended that Nzyvo would gather various past supernatural characters outside of her personal QuirkyMinibossSquad, and that the ghosts would be the only ones recruited before she starts aformentioned QMS), and bordered more on being a SadistShow. Chapters 3 onward had more of the usual feel of "A story that wants itself to be taken seriously, but can't" as with most other ''SBIG'' installments (such as ''naruto the guy with the ninja'' and ''Kids Fight the Zombies''), instead of "General bad crap just happening."
* NakedPeopleAreFunny:
** Soos gets his clothing destroyed a ''lot'', especially in the second half, and he does not mind this ''at all''. At one point he flies naked just like Patrick in the ''Spongebob'' movie.
** Stan's "Bill cosplay" in chapter 4. He wears replicas of Bill's hat, bowtie, and holds a replica of his cane. And wears absolutely nothing else. He spends the whole chapter like this.
** Chapter 8 in general might as well be "The Naked Chapter" with the exception of the primary antagonist group.
* ObligatorySwearing: Even by SBIG standards. Seriously, almost everybody swears in this story. [[spoiler:It's nothing short of amazing that this is a chronological sequel to ''Spooky's House'', since ''Spooky's'' has almost no swearing whatsoever]].
* OnlySaneMan: Of all characters, the Trickster tends to make more sense than anyone else in this story.
* RunningGag:
** It seems like all the members of Nzyvo's QuirkyMinibossSquad (except the Shape Shifter, [[spoiler:mostly because he was killed very early into the story]]) have some alien standards for what's attractive. The Trickster is at one point trying to use pickup lines on some kind of candycane mascot. [=.GIFfany=] hits on a ''television'' at one point, apparently gets rejected, and when the television falls on her she calls it a "fat bitch." And the pterodactyl is described as "affectinly rubbing against" both a giant bone and a ''Transformers'' poster.
* SelfDeprecation:
** Nzyvo and [=.GIFfany=] discuss that the plot of ''FanFic/RunGifocalypse'', another ''Gravity Falls'' fan fic by the same author that was in-progress during the run of ''Journals'', would be paper thin. [=.GIFfany=] laughs when Nzyvo brings up rumors that there are "only fifteen copies" released to the public, and cites canonical evidence that would go against that (despite Fan himself saying that ''rungif'' "assumed" certain things, basically explaining the very same fridge logic that his own later story would try to use as evidence). When she ''does'' gather an army of copy, Soos suggests that they use different hair colors and names to tell one-another apart, but they remark that they are just fine with numbers. [[spoiler:The copies just end up fighting one-another, making the whole "team-up" plan completely useless. While Nzyvo does revive the one that was killed in canon, she quickly uses that copy to "replace" all the others, basically marking a return to the status quo again, as with the usual [=.GIFfany=]-Nzyvo adventures in chapters 3-5 (Both the "Creepypasta Sonic" and "Cybernetic upgrade" prior were hit with similar reset buttons. The only difference is that this genuinely ''is'' a different copy).]] Unlike the other times Fan mocks himself, however, the subject of his mockery was ''not'' an OldShame at the time (as of August 2016 it still isn't), but rather was at the top of his own "recommended list out of the very things I wrote."
* ShipSinking: Poor, ''poor'' Dipper. Let's count the ships sunk with him:
** [[spoiler:The end of chapter 5 reveals that he and Pacifica are genetically related, making things way too squicky for them to get involved in a relationship]].
** [[spoiler:Wendy literally tells him to fuck off in chapter 4]].
**
* TakeThat:
** Nzyvo is a general dig at very unoriginal characters or evil counterparts, and was inspired by a rather strange theory of there being a "secret clone" of Mabel that randomly pops in to replace her.
** Late into chapter 4, Gideon attempts to give Bill a physical form. However, this goes pretty horribly, and results in the creation of what's basically a giant middle finger at Bill's fandom portrayal. He ends up making "some bishonen guy" who quickly becomes obsessed with Dipper to the point of holding him at knife point and acting like he just needs to "woo" him over. Dipper eventually says that he ''prefers'' the original, triangular, maniac Bill to that one, and aformentioned Bill ends up blowing the copy up. TheStinger has something similar happening with [=.GIFfany=], getting a "horrible waifu clone" that the original quickly kills.
** [=.GIFfany=]'s brother by adoption is a Sonic lookalike with blood coming from his eyes that has an obsession with blood. His abilities range from the ''totally useful'' skill of killing fictional characters, to making harmless blood come out of things, to summoning ''plushies'' of himself. While he still proves to be somewhat dangerous, nobody actually takes him seriously. [[VideoGame/SonicExe Hrm...]]
** ''FanFic/TheLightOfCourage'' was one of the story's biggest "inspirations," though not in a positive way.
* TookALevelInBadass:
** All of the "Power" users when it comes to their own skills and their "Power of X" abilities. [[spoiler:Dipper starts out barely able to use his Power of Courage to ''teleport away'', and only in a set location that he was in before (working identically to Farore's Wind in ''Ocarina of Time'') but gains power over both storm and forest alike. Also, he masters its teleportation to the point where he can zip just about ''anywhere''. (Like Farore's Wind... in ''Super Smash Bros'', but on crack.) Nzyvo's skills are ''already impressive'', using a combination of mild Spiral Power with the Power of Power to set shit ablaze, but as the story goes on she becomes even ''more'' dangerous and more credible of a threat. Pacifica, just discovering about barriers and water-related powers, and Mabel... well, let's just say the Power of Heart mixes in ''very'' well with Spiral Energy, and she's single-handedly the whole reason why the town was able to right Mab''le'' in a galaxy-sized mecha]].
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Out of the QuirkyMinibossSquad and the GoldfishPooGang, [[spoiler:While Nzyvo, the Trickster, and [=.GIFfany=] of the former and Gideon of the latter survive to the end, and the Pterodactyl and Bill die at the halfway mark and near the end respectively, the Shape Shifter is killed off after only one chapter's worth of spotlight. Very early into the third chapter at that. Could have been worse for him: The original plan was that he was going to be killed off at the very end of the second chapter as part of Dipper being "motivational" and using a "courage punch."]]
* WholePlotReference: It ''really'' isn't obvious at first, but this loosely follows after the plot of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. For the first half, anyway. The second half features a large spike in originality.

The mission's pretty simple. You're playing as a figure codenamed the Liberator. You have to destroy all clothing. Not just on the planet. Not just in the solar system. Not even in the ''galaxy''. Stop until all that evil clothing is destroyed.

Complicating things is that, much like [[VideoGame/{{OFF}} one of this game's inspirations]], the world it takes place in is utterly bizarre and barely fits in with our own. Unlike ''OFF'', everything's clearly there in some form -- you start out in Earth, which even has its own CN Tower (which is also the setting for the first boss fight). The differences are... well... you're in some kind of massive AlternateHistory where just about every body in space larger than a "regular" asteroid (and some "small" asteroids as well) has at ''least'' one humanoid sapient race on it, and they all basically intermixed with Earth's pretty well as of the day the game takes place. The ''past'', specifically October 26th of 2001[[note]]The release date of ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}}'' in Japan[[/note]]. As a result of having zillions of alien cultures influencing it, Earth itself has gotten some pretty bizarre city designs. The reason ''why'' you're out to destroy clothing is because the Liberator's creator, a 60-something year-old known as the Professor, had done research and discovered a secret breed of unaging space Cockroaches that existed since the universe's early life are really using clothing as means to mind-control sapient life. Things like interuniversal travel, regions outside of any universe that lack sense, meeting "myths," etc are considered part of ordinary life in here, and the concept of "infinities" is discussed pretty often. This is just scratching the surface of the world's weirdness, but the line until it becomes spoiler-y is a bit blurred. Oh, and was it ever mentioned that the playable character is technically a ''flower'', and the gray humanoid you see for most of the game is really a sort of armored suit/mecha for them?

Thus is ''Destroy All Clothing in Existance!'', a SurrealHumor 16-bit RolePlayingGame that can best be described as a bizarre inverse of ''OFF'' mixed with a bizarre inverse of ''Anime/KillLaKill''. It's an... odd title that definitely doesn't take itself seriously at all --

[[folder:The Liberator]]

The central player character of the game. A project by the Professor, an artificial wax soldier created to "liberate" people by slicing off the evil confines secretly placed on them by the Cockroach army. Actually a sapient flower placed into said wax body, used for carrying out the mission.

* CatchPhrase: Prefaces all battles with "Prisoners Spotted. Quantity:" Followed by the number of enemies. [[spoiler:The exceptions are the fights with Roylel, which is just "?," and the Giant Spiders, which is "!!!!!!!!!!"]]
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Thanks to their very isolated raising conditions and being raised by a conspiracy theorist, they're not the best at understanding certain situations.
** When finding Roach at CN Tower, he points to a sign reading "No shirt, no shoes, no service." Liberator somehow mistakes this as saying someone must fit all or none of the requirements. Them not wearing a shirt or shoes is obvious, but then they add on "...So I should refuse to give you service? Because that's what I'm doing right now, man."
** When you first encounter [[spoiler:a Giant Spider in the cleared areas]], Liberator's first concern is that [[spoiler:their silk may bypass the clothing-being-destroyed-by-the-Freedom-Towers, and not that there's spiders the size of buses roaming around]].
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: Every feature of their wax body (not the flower itself, which even has blatantly green petals) is some shade of gray. You have some degree of chosing ''which'' shades of gray, but ultimately the Liberator is a pretty monochrome character, and the only ''major'' monochrome character of note. [[spoiler:This is an early sign that he's connected to Roylel, as she's similarly just white. When you finally encounter another character with just as much of a limited palette, then you know something's off]].
* EideticMemory: When meeting with Sarai for the first time just before the World 3 boss, they instantly know she's a nudist from the start, since they have an eidetic memory and remember every single liberation target.
* {{Expy}}: Of the Batter from ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}''. They're both monochromatic, ''really'' devoted to their mission, and
* ImprobableWeaponUser: A giant sewing needle, which can only cut clothes.
* TheNudifier: Yep, it's their goal and the goal of the whole game, as stated clearly in the title. You cut the clothing off of random civilians for enemy encounters, and after beating a boss the whole overall setting of the world is nudified thanks to Freedom Towers.
* PurelyAestheticGender: Can be male or female, and this has no impact on anything gameplay or story-related.
* StrongFleshWeakSteel: Compared to the Assists. Either the Liberator's body is made out of some strong wax, or the Assists are made out of some weak metal. By default, they take the same amount of damage from attacks.
* TechnicalPacifist: The Liberator doesn't want to ''kill'' anybody or even hurt them. However, they won't stop hacking at people until they're rendered naked. They are legitimately shocked when [[spoiler:FAST]] is blown up after his optional battle. [[spoiler:This is thrown out the window with Roylel, though given how she threatened the Liberator's father figure and friends, she had it coming. Also, Roylel ''is'' clothing itself, which complicates things a little bit]].
* TomatoInTheMirror: [[spoiler:Liberator's wax body was made animate by a thread from the Massive Hat. Which is technically clothing]].
* TotallyRadical: Some of their dialogue crosses into this.
* VirtualPaperDoll: You can pick the Liberator's gender, hairstyle, very general build, etc as you please. Oddly for a game by [=TooMuchDeepWater=] (a guy known for being [[AuthorAppeal rather obsessed with]] colorful things, full rainbows/spectrums, etc), you're ''not'' free to change much of their color. Just about five shades of gray for skin and hair.

[[folder:The Professor]]

A man who, after discovering the truth about the Cockroaches and clothing in his early thirties, retreated to a hidden base he set up in Africa to hide out from an oncoming "apocalypse." A year later, he briefly peeked out of the shelter to see that, no, the Cockroaches have ''not'' turned the world into pure anarchy, and decided that there is still time to save existance. He spent the next few decades of his life experimentally creating the Liberator, the first (known) sapient form of life that was not derived from a humanoid construct. He raised the Liberator as a sort of soldier that would go out and prevent this supposed "apocalypse" from happening by slowly making more and more of the multiverse safe.

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Even ''before'' the whole apocalypse craze and locking himself up around 35 years underground, he's implied to be a pretty big nutcase.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: That naked aging guy who had a laughably thin, hole-riddled theory about clothes being a conspiracy from immortal space cockroaches to control all life in the multiverse? Turns out to be totally correct. [[spoiler:The only thing he didn't account for was how ''clothing itself'' is also in on this, namely as it's all one sentient being known as Roylel]].
* TheOneGuy: If you chose Liberator to be female, he's the only major male character involved in the liberation project. (The Assists being simple robots.)

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Assists]]

A pentet of large, automated tools that help the Liberator out during their journey. For some reason, you can only have one of them out at a time.

* ColorCodedCharacters: Red is for offense (Thumell), yellow for health (Dexin), green for skill (Centrie), blue for speed (Sibang), and pink for status effects (Plinklee).
* ThemeNaming: Their names are all corruptions of fingers on the hand.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Kengrzee AKA "Paypay"]]

A traveling merchant, and your only ally that actively, frequently wears clothing. She appears shortly after you leave the Lab, and sells you items dressed in a spitefully heavy suit. While her prices always remain the same, she adds more to the items and equipment she sells in each subsequent appearance, so be sure to check on her often.

* {{Foil}}: Spends most of the game only found in pre-liberated areas, until [[spoiler:the Reveal with Roylel actually being all clothing]] and shows a remarkable calmness even in dire situations. This is in contrast to the Professor, who spends most of the game in ''post-''liberated areas and is paranoid at almost everything.
* OddFriendship: Goodness, she does ''not'' start off on friendly terms with the Liberator. The way she bargains with them to keep her clothing by saying she would refuse to sell if she was "Liberated," to her trollish atittude that overall makes Liberator question how much they really are devoted to their mission.
* OhCrap: She loses her cool after finding out [[spoiler:that all clothing is an extension of Roylel's being, meaning that she was basically "wearing" parts of that creepy corpse-like woman the entire time. She proceeds to instantly throw off all of her clothes and ''sets them on fire'', while saying "NO NO NO, GO AWAY YOU MONSTER THING!"]]
* PhraseCatcher: Four seperate times in the game, she manages to make Liberator grunt a frustrated "MMMMMMMMM..."
* TeleportSpam: Does this on her introduction to avoid the Liberator's... er... liberation.
* {{Troll}}: Seems to enjoy annoying or teasing the Liberator whenever she can.
-->'''Paypay, when met in World 2:''' Isn't Earth's Original Moon the best? Love that view of that whole planet you just set free?\\
'''Liberator:''' Woah, you put on a new outfit pretty quick. And an identical one, too.\\
'''Paypay:''' Oh, this? I watched your fight with Roach, then left right before you activated the Freedom Tower.\\
'''Liberator:''' ...So I wasn't tricking you into getting hit indirectly, so I wouldn't have to face the moral dilema of putting my mission on hold in order to make it easier against what the Professor wanted?\\
'''Paypay:''' I'll tell you what: If you can hit me with a blast from those, I'll still sell you everything. In fact, I'll throw half charge off! But I have access to a large chunk of existance. Way more than you'll ever explore. I can just keep zipping there while you...\\
'''Paypay:''' Well, right now you're basically going to Alpha Centauri on foot!\\
'''Liberator:''' Uh... huh...\\
'''Paypay:''' So, wanna buy?\\
'''Liberator:''' MMMMMMMMM...
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Isn't phased even by the things that ''would'' be considered unusual in the game's world. Like finding out the truth about the Cockroaches. [[spoiler:She finally gets a strong reaction when she finds out that her favorite outfit -- and all of her clothing -- was an extension of Roylel, capable of spying on her]].
* AVillainNamedZrg: A friendly alien, but it's the same principle, since her real name (IE not her "merchant name") has all three letters in it, one right after another.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sarai]]

A nudist engineer working at a university within the Local Bubble (World 3). Every third world, she upgrades your outdated cell phone given by the Professor.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Her Scan during the fake battle at the "Prep for World 7" sequence shows that she actually has the highest attack stat out of anybody in the game -- at '''40'''[[note]]The health and defense measured are the health and defense ''of the clothing'', but the attack power is all on the person themselves[[/note]]. By contrast, Preacher Roach, the strongest boss in the whole game (Blueoach is intentionally underwhelming and [[spoiler:Roylel]] utilizes [[spoiler:one hit per frame]] which means on paper her attack is ''1''), has only 12. Even some of the "extra" powerful enemies don't go higher than 17. [[spoiler:When Roylel has all of the Liberator's friends and allies trapped in the final battle, she's the only one that manages to set herself free, and briefly helps out during the fight]].
* BrainyBrunette: She's an engineer, and about the second smartest of the main cast, only behind the Professor (and the Professor is offset by being pretty nuts).
* {{Expy}}: Seems to be something of an adult [[VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac Eve.]] She's named after a religious figure (Sarah, the mother of Isaac...), bears a bit of a visual resemblance to her, had some ''slight'' issues with her mother (but in her case it's more of a number of trivial disagreements, like what carreer she should go for, nothing as bad as attempted murder), and had stuggled with gender identity issues at a younger age. Just beofre the midboss of World 11, which is basically the game world's version of the devil, she'll call the Liberator just to say "You have ''no idea'' how bad I wanted to see you do this" while grinning. [[spoiler:One of the many, ''many'' endbosses in ''Binding of Isaac'' is Satan himself, with a more powerful form known as Mega Satan]].
* GuestStarPartyMember: Teams up with you and follows you around during World 10-1 and 10-2, which also happens to be where the game's plot finally gets a bit more depth than just "Work your way to the Freedom Tower, beat the Roach at the end, repeat." This ends with an UnexpectedShumpLevel where she turns your phone into a jetpack and works with your active Assist to blast down some Pilots on their clothing jetpacks.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: At the end of the World 10 shooter game, she, Liberator, and the active Assist all end up falling on the ground. While all three of them land comically (including the Assist, a giant metal head-hand thing), she lands on her face with her ass in the air.
* {{Transsexual}}: A trans woman, both according to WordOfGod and implied in-game when she quotes her mother from a younger age. ("Most of my early life, she was trying to spoil me too much. From 'my baby boy doesn't need perfect grades in elementary school here have these toys instead,' to 'my tween girl should go for a relaxing class' to 'oh, my baby girl, try to pick a fun elective in high school.' I, uh. I liked to challenge myself. We disagreed on that front there.")
* ZeroEffortBoss: When she proposes a compromise to clothing, in the form of leaf-garments, Liberator goes into a fake battle with her. Here, Liberator will end up destroying the garment in one attack, and Sarai will refuse to attack you (instead staring in confusion).

!!! Antagonists

[[folder:Antagonists -- The Cockroaches]]

!! In General

!! Roach

-->''"Welcome to Canada. Now, if you would, please get the heck out."''

The first Cockroach you encounter and the boss of World 1. He's been sent to Earth after the Roaches have narrowed down that the one rebel attempting to spread "liberation" came from that planet overall. He doesn't actually find the Liberator until they reached Canada, where the Freedom Tower for the planet lies.

!! Armored Roach

-->''"BWAH HA HA! Fear me, Liberator! I'm afraid your journey has to end here!"''

A Cockroach with turtle-like features that fights within the Sun's plasma itself, and the boss of World 2.

!! Rising Roach

-->''"You? Aw man, you're killing my spook. I mean, nothing ruins the scare factory more than a crazy [man/woman] running around making everyone naked."''

An overseer of the undead that roams in the graveyards along by the Local Bubble, and the boss of World 3.

!!

!! Industrial Roach

-->''"Full steam ahead! Mostly just because I like steam..."''

A part-cyborg Cockroach that secretly oversees a particular factory at the core of the Milky Way Galaxy, acting as the boss of World 5.

!!

!!

!!

!! Quarterback Roach

-->''"Alright units! Remember the plan! Blue fifty one! Eight reddy-green! Hike! Preferably down that hiking trail!"''

The boss of World 9, a massive sports fan who set up a huge triple planet-like stadium in Laniakea.

* TheLadette: Loves sports, especially football, and even fights you in a football uniform.

!! Sailor Roach

-->''"Are you ready to see the power of a '''real''' dean?"''

A "magical Cockroach" guarding the Freedom Tower in the depths of World 10, at the center of the massive supercluster-spanning school system. She's a self-proclaimed "dean" but isn't actually one legally, thanks to no legal system knowing she even exists (at first, and as with the other Roaches).

!! Preacher Roach

-->''"May the watchers of the souls realize what you are doing is terrible!"''

A member of the Roach army impersonating a religious speaker, holding his place as guarding the Freedom Tower in Heaven, part of the Afterlife of Earth's universe. He's the boss of World 11.

!! Blueoach

-->''"So... you might be a bit disappointed in this but... here we go..."''

A blue-green PaletteSwap of Roach, and supposedly the leader of the entire army. He always guards the Freedom Tower that controls the fate of all clothing in the infinite multiverse/the spaces between universes/all of existance.

* ButtMonkey: For the leader of the Roaches, he has a laughably easy boss fight (assuming you're not doing a LowLevelRun)

[[/folder]]

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''' (The Final Boss)]]

!! Roylel

A strange monochromatic woman that appears fairly suddenly after beating World 5. She appears with weak stats, vanishes after being hit, and laughs about being closer around Liberator than they think.

It turns out that all clothing in existance is really some sort of part of her, derived from and given life by something called the Massive Hat -- an entity deep in the Interplane of existance that is immune to the Liberator's activated Freedom Towers and can keep all clothing inside immune as well. Taking advantage of this, Roylel survives the Liberator extending the final Tower's infinite reach and heads back towards the lab to try to capture all of Liberator's friends. She serves as the real final boss of the game, after an intentionally underwhelming battle with a color swap of the first boss.

* BackFromTheDead: If you pick "I am the exception," the Cockroaches sneak off some of Liberator's Massive Hat fiber and attempt to re-create a form of clothing immune to the Freedom Towers. The ending of this shows some freakish patchwork laughing with Roylel's exact laugh, implying that her last words about coming back were true.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Implied.
-->'''Roylel:''' When you hear infinite thoughts... infinite secrets across your customers... it all starts to blur together... you think things... you feel things... you feel everything, about everything. And then... you feel nothing. Kind of. Just boredom. Nice to have you to shake things up a little with your propaganda stunt, [brother/sister]!
* CombatSadomasochist: It's implied that she ''does'' feel pain, yet she sure as hell doesn't mind losing pieces of herself (likely because she's pretty good at regenerating quite a lot of mass in a short time) and definitely wants to inflict pain in the Liberator and their friends.
* DeaderThanDead: Maybe. Freedom Towers can also affect the afterlife, so clothing produced there would be destroyed. It's unclear if she even has a soul, let alone if the soul itself would be considered clothing. So... by destroying the last Massive Hat fiber in her, Liberator might just erase her from existance. Though if you return to World 11 in the PlayableEpilogue, Paypay will comment about Roylel may have a ghost there afterall, and is just hiding.
* DeathByAThousandCuts: Even in her powered up form, she still only does one damage. The difference is that she utilizes the "one hit point per frame" mechanic of the Children from this game, and Sans from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''.
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The only major character outside of the Liberator to be some form of grayscale (in this case, white, while the Liberator can be customized to be various shades of gray). This is one of the earliest hints that they are both connected -- in this case, they were both given some form of motion/life by the Massive Hat.
* {{Expy}}: Basically a four-way cross between [[Anime/KillLaKill Nui Harime,]] (her abilities, uncanny quality, popping out of nowhere, partly her true nature) [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Roxy Lalonde,]] (appearance) [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} Flowey,]] (partly personality, similar boss fight) and a rotting corpse (appearance).
* FinalBoss: The actual one, after Blueoach was only a RedHerring. Note that she is not a TrueFinalBoss -- no matter what you do, you end up facing her anyway.
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** In a very early cutscene just before heading out to World 1, look on the shelves in the Professor's laboratory. There's a very suspicious-looking doll there that wasn't there before, ''and isn't there in following cutscenes''. Roylel strongly resembles this doll.
** In some of the detailed cinematics, you may notice that a large number of the "standard" blue or yellow outfits a large number of the civilians wear has eyes on them. Yep, clothing itself can be looking at you.
** Your enemies for most of the game are basically ordinary people, or at least close to them. They have jobs, some skills related to the jobs, are seen in the overworld before battle, show energy... regardless of how far you go from Earth or how weird the alien designs are (and to drive the point home, there's always at least regular humans mixed in too), they're still just people. (Albeit ones that are a little ''too'' quick to attack the Liberator.) Roylel, however, does not move in normal combat, her encounters are disguised as RandomEncounters (in reality they're scripted), and overall has a large number of inhuman qualities to her. She's not really a person like these civilians are, but rather some kind of near-immortal clothing abomination.
** She describes Liberator as "A [brother/sister] that never gives up!" in her first appearance.This first comes off as her using it in a religious way or as in "group member." Since they're both given animation thanks to the Massive Hat, they could be considered siblings -- at least, Roylel does consider them to be, which explains why she calls Liberator a brother or sister but nobody else.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Her spying is definitely creepy as hell, but since it's just part of her biology and she doesn't seem to be actually getting a sick out of seeing the people who wear her naked, it does seem kind of hard to actually pin her as "evil" at first. Then, out of pure boredom, she ends up "challenging" the Liberator by threatening to kill all of their friends...
* HumanoidAbomination: While her story is vaguely something Earthly-related (sentient clothing), almost nothing else about her is. Because of the bizarre way this game's world works, the amount of clothing on the amount of sapient life is infinite, and as a result she's technically infinite in size until World 12 is liberated. An already eldritch concept that she repeatedly brings up a lot, even talking about how creepy it is to "suddenly feel limits and finity" when World 12 is cleared. She does a lot of fairly inhuman things in nature, and she ultimately came from some kind of cosmic hat thing.
* KnightOfCerebus: Turns from a quirky, lighthearted SurrealHumor RPG to a paranoia-inducing SurrealHorror-fest whenever she's around.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Played for horror, considering how she basically shrugs off having increasingly large portions of her disintegrate as you liberate each world, culminating in ''an infinite amount of her'' fading away in shreds at once as everything except the bubble protected by her Massive Hat thread is gone. In fact, she simply counts how long it takes before "all possible locations of clothes" are gone.
* MarathonBoss: Has ''Five million hit points'', in a game that otherwise uses ''VideoGame/PaperMario''-level stats. Thankfully, you end up getting the ability to ''divide her hit points by ten per attack'', which makes the battle go by much quicker.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign:
** In regular gameplay, she's the only enemy that never moves during a fight. Even the Giant Spiders have ''some'' kind of limited movement, and other enemies can even have HyperactiveSprites.
** During her ''real'' boss fight, she ends up invoking a number of realistic yarn imagry.
* SinisterSurveillance: Those clothes you probably have on your back? Good thing this game isn't real, otherwise she's making "eyes" out of those to spy on your right now. And you'll have no way of knowing this until it's too late.
* SurrealHorror: Her EstablishingCharacterMoment is her pulling a random encounter on you at the end of World 5 out of nowhere, then seemingly disintegrating in one hit. You don't get the proper answer to this until World ''10'', when she appears again mid-level. In her boss fight, she turns into a giant, photo-realistic plushie that pulls shot guns out of her mouth and swings around on vine branches, among many other bizarre attacks. And she talks about "being infinite in size" and the like, as if it's no big deal for her.
* TakeThat: Water did not like Roxy Lalonde for whatever reason. Keep that in mind and look at pretty much the rest of Roylel's entire trope list. If Roylel is counted as a Roxy incarnation and not as her own character, this isn't even the first time Water turned her into some kind of cat-eyed zombie monster. Or the second (but one of them was a strange "nightmare clone" created by an alien flower).
* UncannyValley: Invoked. She intentionally takes on a lifeless looking, rotting corpse of a design and does creepy things to test how much people still trust clothes after she gives TheReveal.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: This RPG is a very lighthearted one, set in a very technologically advanced and accepting utopia where an infinite amount of aliens and fantasy creatures are just a part of day-to-day life. Nobody really dies during the bulk of the game (unless you count FAST), and even the main bosses aren't "evil secret conspiracy controllers" so much as they are "kind of just making a dishonest profit and being a little invasive." Then comes Roylel, where the clothes themselves are stalking you, she tries to kill Liberator's friends, and uses a large amount of SurrealHorror imagry during her fight.
* WalkingSpoiler: The only character in the game that is this for 100% plot purposes, instead of just being a surprise boss character. Up to World 5-4, you're led to just thinking that it's only the Cockroaches you have to worry about. Then she appears, and you're left wondering about her for a good chunk of the game. Then her re-appearance in World 10-3 recontextualizes a good chunk of what happened earlier in the game... she's also the final boss.
* ZeroEffortBoss: In her appearances in Worlds 5 and 10. She has one hit point, only hits you with a weak attack for one damage, and no defense. Attack once, and just like that, she's gone just as suddenly as she came. Subverted in that if you goof off during the fight, she will launch an unavoidable attack that slowly drains away your health until you die.

[[folder:"Regular" Encounter Enemies/Civilians]]

!! Enemies in General

General format here is that the first line underneath the name of the enemies is their Scan description, with any necessary additional info (likely resulting from the Scan description being either vague or downright lying) being in the lines below.

* AmbiguouslyHuman: Because their traits are picked from a pretty extensive RNG (except for scripted, specific mook battles that have a cutscene beforehand -- so that the characters match up with their appearance in the cutscene), it's possible to get some enemies that look like they could be fully human, but the exact case isn't clear. Since Scan does ''not'' tell you an enemy's species, only the named characters or ones that are important in some way are named.

!!! Children

Annoying training enemies.

Have a rather boring job.

People in uniform. Wait, uniform? You know the drill.

!!! Seniors

Beware their magic hits!

* BossInMooksClothing: Just one of them spells trouble. A full crowd of eight is tougher than the game's final boss.
* MightyGlacier: Have some of the slowest speeds of any enemy in the game, but hit ''hard'' and have pretty high health.

!! Introduced in World 2

No, the cat's fur does not count as clothing.

* UniqueEnemy: They're only encountered in World 10. While there's a reason why they aren't encountered ''later'' (their whole fighting unit is disbanded after Sailor Roach is defeated; unlike the Guardians, who kind of operate on their own based on their respective afterlife), it doesn't really explain why they're not faced earlier, even under rare encounters.

!!! Nudists

Hey! Buddies!

These appear very, very rarely in both liberated and un-liberated worlds, but are slightly more common in the latter (which is ''definitely'' a good thing). They can't be attacked, and don't attack you. Instead, they hand out items.

* HelpfulMook: Toss you items or money randomly. In fact, they don't even attack.
* MetalSlime: Oddly, they're pretty rare, even though liberating an area eventually turns almost everyone in it into a nudist. [[spoiler:They're probably scared off by the giant spiders]].

[[folder:The Couple]]

A zombie-Martian couple that spend a good chunk of World 3 being separated and want to be reunited.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''' (Cleared Area Enemies)]]

!! The Giant Spiders

AAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

The enemies that roam liberated areas. Each world has its own Giant Spider design, but they're mostly pretty similar apart from stats and them gaining one new move roughly every three worlds.

* BossInMooksClothing: They bear extremely powerful stats, and hit like a truck with a '''starting''' attack power of ''7''. Additionally, you cannot run away from them. While Liberator can get to a point where they can trivialize these things near the end of the game (yes, even the World 11 variants), towards the beginning you're just better off not returning to the worlds you've already cleared. No wonder why the Professor still hides out in his shelter even after the whole planet is made clothing-free.
* {{Expy}}: Of the [[spoiler:Secretaries]] from ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}''. They're both extremely powerful enemies that have a more realistic design to them which appear in areas that have already been beaten. And, while later it turns out to not be the case for this game, at first this implies that [[spoiler:the presense of the Giant Spiders means that the Liberator's mission isn't as good as you would think it is.]]
* FakeUltimateMook: The ones in World 11 are exceptionally huge, but by that point in the game it's likely that your rather quadratic leveling-up curve has long passed over their very slow, very ''linear'' "world-by-world power build." This was apparently intentional.
* GiantSpider: It's right there in the name.
* HardLight: Stated to be some kind of physical hologram projection from the Cockroaches.
* JumpScare: They're random encounters in a game that otherwise uses ''Paper Mario'' overworld-enemies, and have intentionally uncanny designs that can cause a bit of a startle. Everything about them just screams "KILL IT RIGHT NOW" (even their ''own Scan description'' is simply a scream, for all eleven varieties), which you unfortunately ''can't'' early on because they pack some pretty high stats.
* LostForever: Vanish after you liberate World 12, as Blueoach was their creator and he admits defeat after you beat him in battle there. This also means that World 12 lacks a Giant Spider variation.
-->'''Game Text After Clearing World 12:''' Also, All Giant Spiders have been exterminated. ''Thank God.''
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: The ones in Worlds 1-3 look extremely realistic in a game that otherwise mocks up simple 16-bit graphics. Once you "get used to that," Worlds 4-6 shake things up with weird, abstract, sketchy spiders. Then in Worlds 7-9 they have a faux-CGI effect. World 10 uses cardboard cut-outs, and World 11 goes back to the photo-realistic images.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''' (Bonus Boss 1)]]

!! Santa Claus

Yes, Saint Nick himself is one of your targets for liberation. Well, he does wear that big red coat, doesn't he? Normally a random encounter, but if you lose to him at a low enough level, he'll offer you a Santa Pass that will let you refight him. Not to worry, as by late-game he should be easy enough to defeat.

* BadSanta: Subverted -- he isn't exactly ''evil'', he just wants to see if you're good enough to end up "liberating" him as well.
* LostForever: Just with the other bonus bosses, he's only fightable in areas that have not been liberated yet. If you cleared all twelve worlds, he can't be faced.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''' (Bonus Boss 2)]]

!! FAST

A randomly-appearing wolf-like creature who, as his name implies, has a high speed stat. He appears to be a MetalSlime at first that's very prone to running away, but if you actually hit him he'll turn into quite the punch-packing bonus boss.

* BewareTheSillyOnes: Like all BonusBoss[=es=], he looks like a joke but he packs a huge punch.
* DefeatEqualsExplosion: He explodes when defeated. His last line of dialogue implies that he was actually detonated by some kind of higher power, but this isn't clear.
* {{Expy}}: Resembles [[Memes/SonicTheHedgehog Sanic.]]
* KilledOffForReal: Notably, he's the only character aside from the true BigBad to end up dying. Although in his case, he ends up randomly exploding for no reason. The Liberator did ''not'' plan this to happen.
* LostForever: Once you clear the whole game, as there are no more possible places he can show up (he only appears in un-liberated areas).

[[/folder]]

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''' (Bonus Boss 3)]]

!! Lucy

An animate skeleton that forms once you collect all of the bones lying around various areas and then assemble them at command, assuming you still have some worlds left un-liberated. She claims to be the source of all sapient life in existance, using her bone structure to prove it.

* LostForever: Cannot be fought during the PlayableEpilogue or after clearing World 12. As her battle involves liberating her from her clothing, and you have ended up getting rid of all clothing in existance by that point (except for, between the former and the latter, [[spoiler:the sphere Roylel made using the Massive Hat, but summoning her ''on top of'' battling Roylel would be so stupid that the game doesn't even let you do it]]).
* MeaningfulName: Named after the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucy_(Australopithecus) australopithecus fossil.]] Confusingly, she claims that she had that name "since creation," and that those "darn excavators stole it because of that stupid song," implying that in-universe the fossils were named after her instead of the other way around.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Predates humanity and all the other humanoid species, which is basically all of sapient life in the game's world (with the exceptions of the Liberator, whose true form is a flower, and [[spoiler:Roylel]]. Possibly [[spoiler:FAST]] as well, we have no idea what the hell he is).
* SmallNameBigEgo: Oh sweet fucking ''Jesus'', "arrogant" doesn't even ''begin'' to describe her.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:'''Spoiler Character''']]

!! The Massive Hat

A cosmological entity speculated to be older than existance itself, and certainly older than Earth's universe.

* CutsceneBoss: Though you do technically fight it as it's fused with Roylel.

# Observable Universe?
# Universe -- Actually, one of infinite universes where Earth is (This world also includes the universe's afterlife)
# Beyond, AKA Existance, AKA for the boring cliche sci-fi people "Multiverse"

Generally I want it to be so that each world has a sort of "center" that you end up warping to to be the boss. With World 2, it's the Sun. With World 5, it's the galactic core. Exceptions are World 1 (while it would establish the general "there's society everywhere" tone of the game to head to the core, no, you're going to Canada for that one) and World 12 (there is no "center" or "edge" to the multiverse, just a certain checkpoint where the Roaches set up their main base at). So basically no "this group of stars, then the group of group of stars that that one orbits by" or whatever, because that would mean that the "center" in both cases would be the same location. This is also why Observable Universe has a questionmark by it even though it may seem like an obvious step in an escalating scale -- by definition the Observable Universe is what we... observe. A: This game takes place in a fuckin' nuts world where instantanous travel is absolutely normal, so the limit to what can be observed increases pretty much infinitely. And B: Even if that was somehow ignored, the center of that would logically be Earth if by "observable" you mean "observable to Earth."

Themes:
# Not much of a theme/closest to "normal" as the game gets
# Adventure themed, mild fantasy elements, action-y
# A lot more quiet, some mild "haunted" theme (towards the end you go to a graveyard)
# Probably a nod to my whole "element" thing, with a tiny bit more emphasis on rainbow-colored environments.
# Industrial; at least around half of it is in a huge factory that has parts across the world's domain
# Undecided
# A "beautiful" theme; just lots of colorful scenery, flowers everywhere, usually in night settings, etc
# Undecided
# Sports-themed? Or just a general traditional game-themed area?
# A sort of arc about a corrupt university that spans the world's domain
# Afterlife-themed (distinct from World 3), faux-religion and myth, sort of good and evil but not that much
# Very bizarre and strange, deals with things such as "glitches" and abstractions; think of it as a sort of counter to World 1

''"...But they can not fly. And never will."''

''Human: Fall Flat'' is a [=3D=] SurrealHumor puzzle/platformer game by No Brakes Games, wherein you take control of an abstract stick figure-like man named Bob as he travels through his reoccuring dreams of falling. Bob is an ordinary human with no superpowers whatsoever, so he must rely on doing... er, ''totally normal human things'' in order to work his way through the various puzzles in his dream worlds and unlock the secrets in his mind.

The game currently only has a demo released, going up to the sixth level.

!! You Grabbed an Instructional Trope List. Hold on Tight!

* EasterEgg: Some areas have a number of hidden locations that don't really add anything except for decoration. Most areas also have some sort of dumpster, which can either be hidden or in plain sight.
* SuperDrowningSkills: The muddy waters in the sixth area function just like pits. Falling in one of them causes an instant respawn.

An old-fashioned propane salesman, a violent half-naked parody of anime schoolgirls, a nerdy physicist, a delinquent who started a world-changing rebel movement, an extremely powerful vampire, and a shape-shifting space rock all walk into a bar...

Main, if not being moved to the appropriate page:
* BilingualBonus: The Japanese text on the scroll on the final episode roughly translates to "Super nude Brenda." So when Young Man was using that as proof that her name was apparently Margaret, it was either an error or he was full of shit.

* LatePartyMemberSyndrome:
** Played straight with the "standard" bloodswap unlocks, whom all start at level 1, regardless of when they are found and recruited.
** The specieswaps and [[spoiler:limebloods]] in 2.0, since they're walled off to a midgame portion instead of being encounterable at any point, have some kind of downplay. They start off at level 15, the halfway mark before the cap.
* PurposefullyOverpowered:
** [[spoiler:The bonus Demon Nepetas. As a reward for the hellish (both literally and figuratively) sequence of unlocking them, you can burn through just about ''any'' possible route or ending. With the exception of the Meta Route, where they're pretty much required. To emphasize how powerful they are, you unlock them individually by fighting them... and compared to your army of ''eight'', just ''one'' of them is capable of ''slaughting'' you. And they're exactly as powerful when initially recruited as they are in-game]].
* [[VocalDissoance Pssh like this will have voice acting though]]: This was partly invoked. Fan said that he enjoys twisting {{fanon}} so several characters are confirmed to have voices that not only don't really match up with common fan portrayals,
** Nepeta has a mature voice with a thick Canadian accent. Even with her portrayal here as a [=6'05''=] (second-tallest character of the "core" 32, not counting various swaps or alts) adult with a model's body, it's jarring. Let alone as her slightly more common fanon portrayal of being rather short and either tiny or buff, as she's depicted as the former in one minigame. Also, most people just don't picture her as having a Canadian accent. Period.
** The ''tallest'' of the group, Jade, also has a pretty high-picthed voice to the point of sounding like a teenage ''boy'' going through incredibly awkward puberty. Again, in ''Bloodswap World'' she's an adult.
** Short, noodle-armed, and slightly pudgy John is given an extremely deep, manly voice. Of course, his voice definitely fits with his ''[[SuperStrength abil]][[RatedMForManly ities]]''.

Bosses: Something something about a pissed off Ezekiel.

* VocalDissonance:
** Professor Dove is described as sounding way too deep for any copy of [=.GIFfany=], though it's all-but stated that they can change their voices to some extent, and she picked a very low, meanacing voice just to sound intimidating. It ''kind of'' suits her status as a bit of a DrillSergeantNasty, but not her appearance.
** ...Buuuuuut Dove's expy in ''Rear's End'', Nathalie, flips it around. She has a ''really'' high-pitched and cutesy voice, which barely fits her general appearance (she's a full grown adult woman) but definitely not her role as a combat commander.

Was this even more idealistic and she was capable of that without the black magic-created body? Or did she simply get the other copies just to repair herself, sent them on the Domain Test just so that she could say she tried to help them in return, come up with a way to send them off, then wait until the Pines were out of the picture (IE Dipper and Mabel going home after summer vacation, Stan and Ford traveling the world together) so that Soos would slowly get have even less and less enthusiastic about help should she go on another rampage?

** [[spoiler:6-3]]. It's a massive pipe maze

[[folder:Wait, What the Hell Was That?]]

The general idea is that this should feel like a spinoff with a little more of an action adventure edge, combining ''Pikmin 2''[='=]s adventure-themed atmosphere and heavier focus on combat (through the caves) and Olimar's presentation in the ''Super Smash Bros.'' games. Basically a compromise with those who want more combat-themed elements in, yet it's not part of the "main series" so that those who like the resource and time management will still have sequels to look foreward to. Ideally it should have enough of its identity that it doesn't feel like "A ''Pikmin'' game where your player character happens to be a Pikmin," but isn't so distinct that it comes off as something that could be better suited as being slapped a ''Mario'', ''Zelda'', ''Kirby'', or original IP title so that it's more recognizable in the former three cases, or more "true" to what it "really is" in the case of the latter.

!! TYPES

''Portable'' once again sees use of Red, Yellow, and Blue Pikmin. And just like ''2'' and ''3'', you have two additional main types to care about. Here's your total party of five for the majority of the game:
* Red Pikmin: Still the strongest, still the first introduced (in 1-1), their fire immunity is still mostly optional. With Purple Pikmin still out of the picture for most of the game, their priority is in their strength. Pack most of your team with them if you plan on spending time beating enemies.
* Yellow Pikmin: Introduced in 1-2.
* Blue Pikmin: Introduced in 1-3.
* Aqua Pikmin: Introduced in 2-1.

!! PETALS

One of the action adventure elements could be something along the lines of a stat upgrade system. In this case, you'll find large colored petals that each correspond to the main types of

!! WORLDS

''Portable'' has a ''Mario''-based level mechanic. To try to combat any limitations with the [=3DS=] or any of its potential successors, there's a total of five "Zones" scattered around the planet much like what we see in the main game's overworld, except each is divided into six "Areas." Roughly, the first of these areas should be more lax than the game's norm by that point (eg there will ''usually'' be a difficulty fall if you compare X-5 or X-6 to Y-1, Y obviously being the Zone after X, then Y-2 will be about on par with X-5) and the sixth would simply consist of a short path leading up to a boss area. If you have all Pikmin on the field with you, then you can simply fly over from one Area to another in an in-game instant, taking up none of your day time. However, going from one entire Zone to another would require ending the day for whatever reason. Let's just say your Onion is exceptionally slow and would need to spend the nights in flight mode over to the next Zone. Ideally, each Zone should be formatted in a way that speedrunners could clear them in one day with a little extra time to spare. This would be a sort of intended expert challenge, maybe even one that the game actually keeps track of should it be easy enough, to encourage time saving and add replay value. With that in mind, this means that ''Portable'' can be beaten in five days, seven counting the bonus areas, and nine counting the "DLC."

Main Worlds in Brief:
* Zone 1: A regular backyard-style grassland/small "forest." You're introduced to the primary colors of Pikmin here. To reflect its status as a warm tutorial Zone that slowly gets you in the hang of the game, as you go further down the Areas it will slowly lose that "enclosed backyard" atmosphere and eventually give off to the open plains, to the point where the boss fight overlooks a huge horizon of a grassy field. We'll say the boss is a Burrowing Snagret, something still simple to get in the hang of things. This is associated with either Red Pikmin or Pikmin in general, containing a large number of flowers and various plants.
* Zone 2: A desert area, specifically a drier part of the world by some rocks. You start out around a canyon area, where you're introduced to the game's two new types of Pikmin. Eventually you work your way out to the base of the rocks and find the boss of this region close by a more open area suffering from a mild sandstorm. This is associated with Yellow Pikmin, with a lot of background features consisting of really high ledges, a dry atmosphere (dry = easier for static electricity to be noticed instead of being dissipated), and some broken electronics may be lying around.
* Zone 3: Starts out in a nice, humid forest. In 3-1, you go on a path that eventually leads up to an overlook of a small pond (which is gigantic from a Pikmin's perspective). 3-2 focuses on the shore of that pond, where it's more established as the sort of "Water Zone." All subsequent Areas take place on top of something out in the middle of the pond. This may seem like the whole Zone might as well be completely limited to Blue Pikmin, but most of the places you'll explore are rather dry apart from what's blatantly out of bounds. It's no more "Blue Pikmin Only" than, say, the Distant Spring or the Perplexing Pool. For some reason, I like the idea of this, out of all environments, to emphasize how tiny the Pikmin are compared to their own world. In 3-1 and 3-2, there would be what looks like these huge holes dug by animals in inaccessable parts of the area, and on occasion when looking down into the lake you might see a huge shadow or something swim by. The boss will take place on a large cluster of lillypads at the dead center of the pond. Obviously, this is the Zone associated with Blues, and in addition to being by a giant pond, there's several puddles of harmlessly shallow water acting as decorations.
* Zone 4: This place is set out in a snow-covered tundra.
* Zone 5:

Bonus Zones:
* Zone 6:
* Zone 7:

Either DLC or, if the Idea Pisses You Off, Just More Bonus Zones That Have a Different Unlock Requirement Than "Finish the Game:"
* Zone 8: The "DLC" Zones contrast greatly with the post-game Zones. 6 and 7 are both bleak, ran down, dark even during day and nearly pitch-black at night. This mostly takes place on a huge rock. However, you can dig into little cracks and the like to find a number of bright, shining gems and crystals. The boss area is surrounded in a rainbow of various crystals all dotting the landscape, a little detail inspired by ''VideoGame/EpicBattleFantasy 4''. This is associated with Rock Pikmin.
* Zone 9: I want this to be sort of like the ''Pikmin'' equivalent of that [=PS1=] ''Frogger'' region in the clouds. Mostly for the whole "you're in a high place overlooking a huge landscape" asthetic. It's set in a large city-like area, always high on buildings or construction zones. You get a great overlook of the area around, and can even see the sun set in the background if you angle the camera closer to a shoulder view or use the first-person camera for snapshots. Air travel is emphasized here, by means of crossing huge gaps. This is also supposed to be a semi-relaxing area that focuses more on gimmick over brutal difficulty (it's easier than Zones 6 and 7, but isn't ''super'' easy or anything). This is associated with Winged Pikmin. In general, Zone 8 goes for more of a "look at the tiny inner beauty in these little things" while Zone 9 is "look at this amazing huge landscape you live in and admire the massive scale."

* EarnYourHappyEnding: The story isn't exactly brutally dark for the most part or anything, but the times do get rough, and the gang ''does'' have to trek through ''fourteen'' areas (fifteen if you count Paricutin's lava tubes and summit as seperate domains).

* LethalJokeCharacter:
** [[VideoGame/HongKong97 Chin]] has, on paper, some of the ''worst'' stats of any of Great Pikmin Fan's characters: A shitty default run speed that's the same as his walk (he can ''technically'' run, but the two are identical in both terms of animation and effect), effectively one regular attack that consists of shooting a weak "energy bullet," and [[OneHitPointWonder one hit point.]] (Adding insult to injury, ''Glass of Water'' has ''ten''.) Oh yeah, and don't think this is offset by invincibility: He can be hit in just about every state he's in unless he's dizzy (simply because he wasn't expected to ever become dizzy in a regular battle, and whatever offending attack would do so would have just KO'd him right there). He has a whopping ''9999'' defense, but this means nothing thanks to aformentioned single hit point. However, he can store up to 100,000 power, which seems like a complete joke at first... just to find out that he packs some serious hypers. His weakest is basically a sort of shop, where he can negate his issues. At the cost of power, he can buy: A ''stackable'' speed booster which actually gives him a working run,
** Fan's [[OriginalGeneration Tagger]] character is much more meanacing than he looks, to the point where just spending one minute trying to fight his AI (and then several more trying to replicate that while ''playing as him'') will make the reason why he's found to be DifficultButAwesome apparent. His main gimmick is that he has extremely low health (500, half the typical ''MUGEN'' amount)

* ThatOneAttack:
** While Cheaper Edd has been getting steadily nerfed as Fan updates his loose "continuity," (the main limiting rule being that he can't be easier than the Edd he's an edit of in any aspect) his "Diablo" striker (basically a version of [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Dave Strider]] from the new ''Sweet Jade and Hella John'' who has gone completely off the deep end and became a murderer) has only ever became more of a giant pain in the ass. Normal Diablo has remained constant and laughable: He floats to about the center of the screen from where he's summoned, then he slowly descends and his feet deals 500 damage. This might seem like a lot, but that attack is easily telegraphed by the background being tinted dark red and him being visible harmlessly floating upwards. Diablo ''X'', however, was buffed into nothing short of a nightmare. He's faster, his foot attack now either [[HPToOne reduces your health to 1]] if you have more than 500 life (in which case, considering Cheaper Edd's guard damage for practically every attack he has, you might as well consider yourself dead) or insta-kills you if you don't, and he has an added (this was the aformentioned buff) [[VideoGAme/TheBindingOfIsaac Brimstone laser]] that deals the same 500 damage as the original Diablo. Basically, Cheaper Edd more-or-less covers your entire back half of the battlefield with a quickly-descending ceiling of pain, and depending on how far back you are you could either risk trying to run under it and possibly get the "soul-hitting feet," or just try tanking the Brimstone and have half of Kung Fu Man's lifebar shaved off from you. Oh yeah, and it's totally unblockable. If you see the Striker Gauge showing an emo-looking pixel figure labeled "???X," [[ThisIsGonnaSuck just be prepared.]] The 4.0 update to Cheaper Edd also adjusted the Diablo options so that Cheaper Edd can spawn him "defensively," meaning that instead of dropping by the center of the stage, he'll drop by the end Cheaper Edd is on. Except X's Brimstone can still hit you across the screen. Meaning you either have to lure Cheaper Edd over to your side and back hop like crazy to dodge the tail end of it, or charge foreward past him to slip behind Diablo X.

* Xs and solid vertical lines are other common occuring symbols, mainly tied with the 361-based stories. Usually, the former is for something related to negativity while the latter is something positive,
but this means nothing thanks isn't always the case, especially in ''Bl:oo<dswap''.
** In ''Bl:oo<dswap: Guess Who's Getting a Spinoff?'', Olive Nepeta's 33 motif is more-or-less exchanged with a general "3" theme, and nine other swaps each fill in a different digit from 0
to 9[[note]]Rust for 0, Bronze for 1, Gold for 2, aformentioned single hit point. However, he can store up Olive for 3, Purple for 4, Lime for 5, Jade for 6, Teal for 7, Cobalt for 8, and Violet for 9[[/note]]. The two exceptions are Indigo, who has a percent sign (which, like Equius, she uses for the letter "X," but ''only'' the letter and not things that make its sound), and Fuchsia, who's mouth emoticon symbol (which is a dead giveaway for their digit) is the letter "I." [[spoiler:Kurloz has Xs over his ears and using Black's Anti-Psychic blood to 100,000 power, cancel out the effects of other trolls works most effectively when drawn in Xs. Meanwhile, vertical lines appear as sort of portals, usually involved in Hemrit's plans]].
** In ''Bloodswap World'',
which seems like a complete joke at first... just is more-or-less ''Spinoff''[='=]s LighterAndSofter spiritual successor, Kurloz is revealed to find out that he packs have a particularly nasty-looking "X" marking across his stomach. This is also visible across ''all'' Kurlozes ("Midnight Bliss" Kurlozes, to be specific) in Chin's "Megabrigade" hyper in ''MUGEN''.
** In ''run:gifocalypse'', [[TheDragon Professor Dove]] not only fits most of her weapons with the diagonal crosses, but unlike every other professor she has her BlushStickers constantly replaced with Xs. (Most of them stick with [=.GIFfany=]'s design in canon -- circles usually, hearts
some serious hypers. His weakest times.) [[spoiler:After being captured and reconsidering her path of destruction, she switches the latter back, but is still okay with fitting her weapons with the sign]]. Vertical lines appear near the end, in the form of several coin slots, and are naturally pretty prominent on [[spoiler:the Planet Negation Girl, which is basically a sort planet-sized hyperarcade]]. The switches in the same spoiler-location also use an X to mean "off," and a vertical line to mean "on."
** ''Rear's End'', which is basically what ''Spinoff'' and especially ''Gifocalypse'' were "practice" for, finally gives these an in-story purpose for these. Namely, an X is considered something
of shop, a demonic symbol to fairies. To the point where he can negate his issues. At the cost of power, he can buy: A ''stackable'' speed booster which actually gives him a working run,
** Fan's [[OriginalGeneration Tagger]] character is much more meanacing than he looks,
they try to avoid anything equally cross-shaped if necessary, to the point where just spending one minute trying to fight his AI (and then several more trying to replicate that while ''playing as him'') will make four-way intersections usually have small curves making up the reason why he's found to be DifficultButAwesome apparent. His main gimmick is that he has extremely low health (500, half the typical ''MUGEN'' amount)

* ThatOneAttack:
** While Cheaper Edd has been getting steadily nerfed as Fan updates his loose "continuity," (the main limiting rule being that he can't be easier than the Edd he's an edit of in any aspect) his "Diablo" striker (basically a version of [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Dave Strider]] from the new ''Sweet Jade and Hella John'' who has gone completely off the deep end and became a murderer) has only ever became more of a giant pain in the ass. Normal Diablo has remained constant and laughable: He floats to about the center
two portions of the screen from where he's summoned, then he slowly descends and his feet deals 500 damage. This might seem like a lot, but roads that attack cross.

* VocalDissonance:
** Professor Dove
is easily telegraphed by the background being tinted dark red and him being visible harmlessly floating upwards. Diablo ''X'', however, was buffed into nothing short of a nightmare. He's faster, his foot attack now either [[HPToOne reduces your health to 1]] if you have more than 500 life (in which case, considering Cheaper Edd's guard damage described as sounding way too deep for practically every attack he has, you might as well consider yourself dead) or insta-kills you if you don't, and he has an added (this was the aformentioned buff) [[VideoGAme/TheBindingOfIsaac Brimstone laser]] that deals the same 500 damage as the original Diablo. Basically, Cheaper Edd more-or-less covers your entire back half any copy of the battlefield with a quickly-descending ceiling of pain, and depending on how far back you are you could either risk trying to run under it and possibly get the "soul-hitting feet," or just try tanking the Brimstone and have half of Kung Fu Man's lifebar shaved off from you. Oh yeah, and [=.GIFfany=], though it's totally unblockable. If you see the Striker Gauge showing an emo-looking pixel figure labeled "???X," [[ThisIsGonnaSuck all-but stated that they can change their voices to some extent, and she picked a very low, meanacing voice just be prepared.]] to sound intimidating. It ''kind of'' suits her status as a bit of a DrillSergeantNasty, but not her appearance.
** ...Buuuuuut Dove's expy in ''Rear's End'', Nathalie, flips it around. She has a ''really'' high-pitched and cutesy voice, which barely fits her general appearance (she's a full grown adult woman) but definitely not her role as a combat commander.

* LiteralSplitPersonality: Happens to Hank in an early chapter. Splitting him among [...] and [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness "Season 1 and 2 Hank."]]
The 4.0 update to Cheaper Edd also adjusted the Diablo options so that Cheaper Edd can spawn him "defensively," meaning that instead of dropping latter, by the center of way, is described as [[ArtEvolution "looking slightly older and more washed out,"]] [[CharacterizationMarchesOn has a higher temper, is willing to eat from a grill that doesn't use propane,]] and apparently more prone to saying [[FountainOfMemes "stupid stuff that people on the stage, he'll drop by the end Cheaper Edd is on. Except X's Brimstone can still hit you across the screen. Meaning you either have internet make fun of to lure Cheaper Edd over to your side and back hop like crazy to dodge the tail end of it, or charge foreward past him to slip behind Diablo X.
no end."]]



* DifficultySpike: In a run where you kill all professors, once you're hard-railed into this ([[spoiler:the point being if you killed Sonia]]), the game takes a huge spike in difficulty. [[spoiler:Enemies are replaced with more powerful variants in all domains except Paricutin, which is evacuated, and the revisit to Gravity Falls, a breather area before you take on the Construction Site. Wendy the AI becomes Armored Wendy, an ''extremely'' tough boss fight that could one-shot your whole party. Oh, and you can't use the "early Stan recruit" trick on this run either. Shannon fights you as a giant this time, once again having a huge stat boost compared to a neutral run (or a pacifist run, but you can simply skip fighting her altogether there). And the twins? They fuse to Blenda, who turns all elemental immunities on their head and frying you regardless on whether you packed fire ''or'' ice resistance. And you don't have the Stans on your side ''either'' -- they've been sent back to Gravity Falls. If you manage to survive ''all of those'', Dian will come at you with a "karmic poison" mechanic, hitting you with an ''uncurable'' form of poison that lasts her entire match, and hitting you with the hardest attacks in the entire game]].
* PaintingTheMedium:
** In a normal run, the human characters are on the left, your opponents are on the right. [[spoiler:Enter the route where you basically kill every possible killable character, including (and ''especially'') ones that refuse to fight you... well, once you're hard-locked into the game's version of a No-Mercy run, your characters will appear on the right side, the [=AIs=] and company will be on the left. By the time you ''finally'' get to [=.GIFfany=], the biggest asshole in this particular story, the fight mockup scene depicts both her and the Pines on the right -- neither side at that point could be considered good, one being an abusive yandere and the other murdered her whole family, including "redeemed" copies outright in the process of making the world a better place with no drawbacks, just because of guilt by association]].

in those exact words.



* MindScrew:
** ''Bl:oo<dswap: Guess Who's Getting a Spinoff'' is fairly unique in that there are MindScrewdriver[=s=] given out pretty often. It's just that... for every MindScrewdriver, there's another MindScrew waiting around the corner. WordOfGod says that everything ''will'' be answered eventually, but probably not until the absolute end of the story.
** Aaaaand ''Bloodswap World'' manages to blow nearly everything above out of the water, including what it's a sort-of derivative of, ''Guess Who's Getting a Spinoff?'' First, you'll have to understand a universe where everyone's blood swap co-exists. This is just scratching the surface:



YoutubePoop?
* Earl's incredibly blunt narration when introducing Homer Simpson:
-->''"That's Homer. Nobody likes Homer. [[PrecisionFStrike Fuck Homer.]]"''
* [[WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory Lloyd]] repeatedly saying "We got some Jon Snow in there... we got some Jon Snow in there... we got some Jon Snow in there... we got some Jon Snow in there... we got some Jon Snow in there..." as more and more Jon Snows pile up, until there's five in total. And Martin stabs all five of them in quick succession. In a later Poop, a drunk [[Series/TheBigBangTheory Sheldon]] starts singing about the elements that make up the universe. A blank table arranged like the periodic table appears over the screen, and as Sheldon lists off elements it's filled with images approrpiately fitting them... until he says "iron" five times, just like the aformentioned "Jon Snow" RunningGag. ''Then'' he starts listing other things, like five slots of Jon Snow in the table, the "shrimp" gag from ''Film/ForrestGump'',

[[folder:RE is a working title]]

And where locations could be seen from a distance. To make the world feel more "real" for the lack of a better term, have it set up so that areas that are visible in the background in sections of one storyline have a very high chance of being visited in later lines. Like, even something as small as a cluster of houses on a hill. Olivia's in Force Hills for one chapter and there's a small hillside residential area, then much later one of the residents asks her or her friends to help her get rid of some kind of monster thing attacking the place.

Connectivity would also be kind of important. To try to avoid having accusations of "pointless characters" or underutilization, we'll ideally never see a garunteed "end" for a particular character unless it's just some mindless hazard of the week that gets killed off. Familiarity is key -- characters should probably be introduced first through someone that the readers are already familiar with, but this should "branch" off in that even those introduced several chapters into the story would be made "familiar" enough to have side-stories with new characters in adventures mostly free of even Olivia. I'm basically just coming up with a way to avoid a sort of ''Adventure Time''-esque scenario of giving "background guy that appeared once gets his own adventure"

!! Going Back to Wishing I Could Write Good and Draw, Mostly Write Good

* ParanoiaFuel:
** Also, a meta example. Water is infamous for taking AnyoneCanDie to ''extremes''. To the point where he's ''disappointed'' when a story doesn't turn out to be as kill-crazy as hyped. His goal is to put readers looking for signs into dread that a major character is going to die even though he said he has no current plans to kill anyone off. He does this with a lot of derivative works killing Olivia off as an example (eg )
-->'''[=TooMuchDeepWater=]:''' Consider my early, purposefully poorly written fan fiction to kind of parallel with my less-early but still early-y stories. ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' teaches you that I don't hand out PlotArmor to the first characters introduced: We first meet Alucard, he gets a lot of focus for the first four chapters, and then he dies in the fourth, less than a third way through. Then comes ''Soap: The Lost Element'', where we meet Woat and Lum first and they're both the leads of the beginning. Then they die a quarter of the way into the story.\\
\\
''Gumball Vs Satan'' teaches you that I won't spare a character even if their name is in the title. Gumball dies in chapter 2. Yeah, it's out of only 6, but that's still a third of the way into the story. His body's re-possessed by Jealousy or something but that's more-or-less a completely different character anyway. Again, this also applies for my original stories that I tried to put quality into and not just shitty idea-hammering with someone else's characters: both ''''\\

[[folder:Chin and Allies]]

!! [[VideoGame/HongKong97 Chin]]

[[caption-width-right:120:This battle was brought to you by Coca-Cola.]]

* BulletHell: One of his Slot results is to spawn a shitload of energy bullets from five directions, much like Cheaper Edd's Cheaper Eddy X attack.
* EasterEgg:
** Since he's not meant to take damage in the traditional way and survive it, burning, shocking, freezing, or stunning him will cause odd images to show up. Dizzying is the most common of these, since by default ''MUGEN'' uses the dizzy animation during a "Continue" screen in Arcade mode. In that case, he just transforms into his portrait.
** His internal name is "Hong Kong [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys Bite of '87.]]"
** If you check his sprites, the first thing you'll see is [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Plank]] basically telling you
* InsaneTrollLogic: Refuses to wear red because it's the color of communism. This is also why his palette options include every color of the rainbow ''except'' red.
* {{Jerkass}}: Probably the worst of Fan's bunch, and that's saying a lot considering Template Man, Cheaper Edd, Even Cheaper Edd, Brenda, Tagger, Sheldon, and even '''the Homer Army'''. (Though Homer Army competes with him on more of a "personal assholishness" level; The Homer clones admit to [[WouldHurtAChild fighting children]]. Chin's goal is basically xenocide.)
* LethalJokeCharacter: In contrast to Glass of Water being a genuine JokeCharacter. Chin, when up against the right opponent, will instantly gain 100,000 power. With that he can either spam a powerful but short-ranged attack, effectively buy his way into invincibility, or try his luck with an attack that's basically Template Man's Slot on steroids.
* OneHitPointWonder: As he was in his base game. However, he can circumvent this by getting a ''Sonic''-style barrier that self-regenerates.
* PaletteSwap: Half the time, the "Communists" he fights use the actual sprites from his base game. The other half, they're just Chins with red shirts, effectively Chin in a palette he doesn't have (Chin is one of the characters that follows the "twelve RGB color" model, only in place of a red-shirted palette is his default white shirt, because red is the color of communist).
* RealMenWearPink: Just like all of Fan's characters, male or female, he too has some forms of pink-themed palettes. In this case, his shirt can be violet, magenta, or rose.

An abomination formed based on the infamous "Bee Shrek Test in the House" meme. Just like the Slot result in Template Man's roster that uses Shrek as the image, this is by far the most powerful of Chin's Slot attacks. And considering the ''huge'' boost Chin's Slot move has compared to Temps's, that's saying a ''lot''.

* LethalJokeCharacter:
** [[VideoGame/HongKong97 Chin]] has, on paper, some of the ''worst'' stats of any of Great Pikmin Fan's characters: A shitty default run speed that's the same as his walk (he can ''technically'' run, but the two are identical in both terms of animation and effect), effectively one regular attack that consists of shooting a weak "energy bullet," and [[OneHitPointWonder one hit point.]] (Adding insult to injury, ''Glass of Water'' has ''ten''.) Oh yeah, and don't think this is offset by invincibility: He can be hit in just about every state he's in unless he's dizzy (simply because he wasn't expected to ever become dizzy in a regular battle, and whatever offending attack would do so would have just KO'd him right there). He has a whopping ''9999'' defense, but this means nothing thanks to aformentioned single hit point. However, he can store up to 100,000 power, which seems like a complete joke at first... just to find out that he packs some serious hypers. His weakest is basically a sort of shop, where he can negate his issues. At the cost of power, he can buy: A ''stackable'' speed booster which actually gives him a working run,
** Fan's [[OriginalGeneration Tagger]] character is much more meanacing than he looks, to the point where just spending one minute trying to fight his AI (and then several more trying to replicate that while ''playing as him'') will make the reason why he's found to be DifficultButAwesome apparent. His main gimmick is that he has extremely low health (500, half the typical ''MUGEN'' amount)

* ThatOneAttack:
** While Cheaper Edd has been getting steadily nerfed as Fan updates his loose "continuity," (the main limiting rule being that he can't be easier than the Edd he's an edit of in any aspect) his "Diablo" striker (basically a version of [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Dave Strider]] from the new ''Sweet Jade and Hella John'' who has gone completely off the deep end and became a murderer) has only ever became more of a giant pain in the ass.

While walking through the apparently-blood-covered rooms with the "Leos," there's an extremely low chance of encountering these bizarre ghost-like enemies that only "attack" by healing you.

!! Admitting it's Already Doomed

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Over time ''run:gifocalypse'' became viewed as "just another '[=.GIFfany=] floods the world with copies of her game' story," and one that's bashed for the copies having almost no consistency or shared theme beyond shoe-horning the author's strange elemental system. The fact that Fan specifically avoided anime-type cliches entirely like the {{tsundere}} or the {{kuudere}} (though Dove was an exaggerated deconstruction of the former before being given more depth) made it age especially poorly, as the two leading stories were built on that and thus it felt more in-character to [=.GIFfany=] as a whole (one of which had an army of yanderes, the other an army of subverted common harem cliche types which, like ''[=RunGif=]'', had more complexity than a first glance). Some other fics that took on the idea polished what this failed at, such as being more down-to-earth in general, limiting what the [=.GIFfany=] clones can do, being more general audience-friendly, and falling much harder on whether she's redeemable or a total villain instead of trying to pull moral ambiguity but just coming off as criticising ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''[='=]s themes [[BrokenAesop while following most of them at the same time.]] At the time it was written, however, it was '''the''' "[=.GIFfany=] gathers millions of copies of her game and floods the world with them" fan fic -- literally. It was the only (as far as anyone, including the author, knew) published story with that premise for well around half a year. (In fact, its own TV Tropes page was the first result for Googling "[=.GIFfany=] copies.") Fan's real primary motivation for writing it is because ''no-one else had at the time'' despite sounding like obvious FanFicFuel. Now, it's seen as an especially out-there crazy SoBadItsGood CrackFic romp that uses "an elemental band" for [=.GIFfany=]'s particular minions/armies just like several other fics, with tasteless unfitting FanDisservice thrown in and a very jarring CerebusRollercoaster in its third act, and lacking popular characters such as Pacifica or Bill. There's also a growing sub-set of [=.GIFfany=] haters (this story being the primary reason why she went from an EnsembleDarkhorse to a serious BaseBreaker dwarfing even ''Mabel's'' status) who hate the genre in its entirety and wish the authors would focus more on the interactions with the human characters, and that trying to humanize [=.GIFfany=] or make her into a long on-going threat is going directly against the message of her episode. The closest it comes to being positively remembered is as being the biggest prototype to ''Rear's End''.

While the character herself is more of a tragic case with a good ending and a recruitable late-game party member, unlocking her requires going through the music-less cleared areas, with lots of slightly-off details (roughly one in ten of the readable things before will be noted to have been turned to absolute gibberish) to collect these "Leos." While walking through the apparently-blood-covered rooms with the "Leos," there's an extremely low chance of encountering these bizarre ghost-like enemies that only "attack" by healing you. With all of them in hand, going back to the forest of Gravity Falls for the thirteenth and final one, and using them on a Wire, you'll be sent to a mindscrew of a sub-dimension where you battle her and piece her together as a full party member]].

Toy around with it and there's a chance that either: The Brain Monster from "The Inconveniencing," a red-and-black distorted chalk drawing-like Uboa, or [[NightmareRetardant an apparent Mabel clone in a crappy "Creepypasta Sonic" mask]] will appear. As you could imagine, there's no explanation for this. If you get the second one and try to talk to it, the game intentionally crashes.

* AntiClimaxBoss:
** The first phrase of [=.GIFfany=] is damn-near laughable, considering how she's [[spoiler:possessing what's basically a Humongous Mecha larger than the planet]]. Regardless, you still have a party outnumbering her [[spoiler:seven to one, eight to one if you have Professor Eve]] and likely have some hard-hitters on your team. The phrase after that is tougher, but you can't say it's the game being merciful to avoid having two hard bosses in a row, because you get a chance to save and fully heal (free of charge!) between battles.

!! Admitting it's Already Doomed

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Over time ''run:gifocalypse'' became viewed as "just another '[=.GIFfany=] floods the world with copies of her game' story," and one that's bashed for the copies having almost no consistency or shared theme beyond shoe-horning the author's strange elemental system. The fact that Fan specifically avoided anime-type cliches entirely like the {{tsundere}} or the {{kuudere}} (though Dove was an exaggerated deconstruction of the former before being given more depth) made it age especially poorly, as the two leading stories were built on that and thus it felt more in-character to [=.GIFfany=] as a whole (one of which had an army of yanderes, the other an army of subverted common harem cliche types which, like ''[=RunGif=]'', had more complexity than a first glance). Some other fics that took on the idea polished what this failed at, such as being more down-to-earth in general, limiting what the [=.GIFfany=] clones can do, being more general audience-friendly, and falling much harder on whether she's redeemable or a total villain instead of trying to pull moral ambiguity but just coming off as criticising ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''[='=]s themes [[BrokenAesop while following most of them at the same time.]] At the time it was written, however, it was '''the''' "[=.GIFfany=] gathers millions of copies of her game and floods the world with them" fan fic -- literally. It was the only (as far as anyone, including the author, knew) published story with that premise for well around half a year. (In fact, its own TV Tropes page was the first result for Googling "[=.GIFfany=] copies.") Fan's real primary motivation for writing it is because ''no-one else had at the time'' despite sounding like obvious FanFicFuel. Now, it's seen as an especially out-there crazy SoBadItsGood CrackFic romp that uses "an elemental band" for [=.GIFfany=]'s particular minions/armies just like several other fics, with tasteless unfitting FanDisservice thrown in and a very jarring CerebusRollercoaster in its third act, and lacking popular characters such as Pacifica or Bill. There's also a growing sub-set of [=.GIFfany=] haters (this story being the primary reason why she went from an EnsembleDarkhorse to a serious BaseBreaker dwarfing even ''Mabel's'' status) who hate the genre in its entirety and wish the authors would focus more on the interactions with the human characters, and that trying to humanize [=.GIFfany=] or make her into a long on-going threat is going directly against the message of her episode. The closest it comes to being positively remembered is as being the biggest prototype to ''Rear's End''. And for actually having an ending instead of being discontinued or going on indefinite hiatus, which is the fate of even [[SturgeonsLaw the well-received]] "[=.GIFfany=] copy invasion" fics.

[[folder:Chin and Allies]]

!! [[VideoGame/HongKong97 Chin]]

[[caption-width-right:120:This battle was brought to you by Coca-Cola.]]

* BulletHell: One of his Slot results is to spawn a shitload of energy bullets from five directions, much like Cheaper Edd's Cheaper Eddy X attack.
* EasterEgg:
** Since he's not meant to take damage in the traditional way and survive it, burning, shocking, freezing, or stunning him will cause odd images to show up. Dizzying is the most common of these, since by default ''MUGEN'' uses the dizzy animation during a "Continue" screen in Arcade mode. In that case, he just transforms into his portrait.
** His internal name is "Hong Kong [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys Bite of '87.]]"
** If you check his sprites, the first thing you'll see is [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Plank]] basically telling you
* InsaneTrollLogic: Refuses to wear red because it's the color of communism. This is also why his palette options include every color of the rainbow ''except'' red.
* {{Jerkass}}: Probably the worst of Fan's bunch, and that's saying a lot considering Template Man, Cheaper Edd, Even Cheaper Edd, Brenda, Tagger, Sheldon, and even '''the Homer Army'''. (Though Homer Army competes with him on more of a "personal assholishness" level; The Homer clones admit to [[WouldHurtAChild fighting children]]. Chin's goal is basically xenocide.)
* LethalJokeCharacter: In contrast to Glass of Water being a genuine JokeCharacter. Chin, when up against the right opponent, will instantly gain 100,000 power. With that he can either spam a powerful but short-ranged attack, effectively buy his way into invincibility, or try his luck with an attack that's basically Template Man's Slot on steroids.
* OneHitPointWonder: As he was in his base game. However, he can circumvent this by getting a ''Sonic''-style barrier that self-regenerates.
* PaletteSwap: Half the time, the "Communists" he fights use the actual sprites from his base game. The other half, they're just Chins with red shirts, effectively Chin in a palette he doesn't have (Chin is one of the characters that follows the "twelve RGB color" model, only in place of a red-shirted palette is his default white shirt, because red is the color of communist).
* RealMenWearPink: Just like all of Fan's characters, male or female, he too has some forms of pink-themed palettes. In this case, his shirt can be violet, magenta, or rose.

!! The Shopkeeper/Governer of Hong Kong/"Not Chris Patten"

!! Omega Hank Hill

See his entry in his own folder. Chin is yet another character that can call him for "support."

!! The Megabrigade/Midnight Bliss Brigade (+ Diablo, Plank, and Bill Cipher)

A more powerful version of

Represented by a solid black icon with the word "Censored :(" written on it.

!! Omega Drew Pickles

See his entry in his own folder. He's one of the eight possible slot options during Chin's "slot" hyper.

!! VideoGame/TheWonderful101

Indicated by an image of Captain Falcon.

!! The Waifu Army

!! Shrek Berry Cory Johnny

An abomination formed based on the infamous "Bee Shrek Test in the House" meme. Just like the Slot result in Template Man's roster that uses Shrek as the image, this is by far the most powerful of Chin's Slot attacks. And considering the ''huge'' boost Chin's Slot move has compared to Temps's, that's saying a ''lot''.

* [[VocalDissoance Pssh like this will have voice acting though]]: This was partly invoked. Fan said that he enjoys twisting {{fanon}} so several characters are confirmed to have voices that not only don't really match up with common fan portrayals,
** Nepeta has a mature voice with a thick Canadian accent. Even with her portrayal here as a [=6'05''=] (second-tallest character of the "core" 32, not counting various swaps or alts) adult with a model's body, it's jarring. Let alone as her slightly more common fanon portrayal of being rather short and either tiny or buff, as she's depicted as the former in one minigame. Also, most people just don't picture her as having a Canadian accent. Period.
** The ''tallest'' of the group, Jade, also has a pretty high-picthed voice to the point of sounding like a teenage ''boy'' going through incredibly awkward puberty. Again, in ''Bloodswap World'' she's an adult.
** Short, noodle-armed, and slightly pudgy John is given an extremely deep, manly voice. Of course, his voice definitely fits with his ''[[SuperStrength abil]][[RatedMForManly ities]]''.



* Soos and [=.GIFfany=]: Jesus vs the Satan in the context of this story (Bill's obviously the "Satan" of canon, being an actual demon that makes deals and stuff). No, really, though this wasn't planned at first. Soos's Jesus parallels are already canon. (No, really.) In this story [=.GIFfany=] is a powerful figure that later uses a pitchfork as a weapon, basically collects various souls (the AI copies of professors who failed or refused to capture the humans), offers temptation,

!! Professor Eve

The copy owned by the leaker. She was somehow banished into Cyberspace after the leaker found out about her possessive nature, unable to return or die until the Gifocalypse occured and the other copies just so happened to start building "roads" through Cyberspace. After fragments of her form realized this, she went out to "haunt" the cleared domains until someone "fixed" her case and gave her a physical form too.

* GuideDangIt: Unlocking her is barely hinted at by a passing comment by Burnda (where she notes that Dove's spying team has picked up some "weird sightings" in the cleared domains) near the end of a passifist run, and not at all in a run where you killed a professor. The intent was that doing a passifist run will slightly "reward" you by giving you a nudge to finding a character you normally could in any run that doesn't involve killing everyone (the chests with the Leos in them do not appear until after you spare a professor for the first time)
* PurposefullyOverpowered: Benefitting as a bonus character that can't unlocked until the last one and a half levels of the game.

* "FUCK DAVE."[[note]]Water used to "leak" information of sorts about ''Rear's End'' on the Sandboxes of this very wiki, usually just to pound ideas out on some kind of editable site. Someone who had taken note of this eventually gave out details once the comic ''finally'' came out and started getting steam, which included plans of a HateSink character named "Dave." Basically, the "leak" in regards to him was "Be prepared in advance to ''really hate'' a guy named Dave..." After page after page and storyline after storyline passed, Water ''finally'' explained that Dave was actually an idea he already rejected, so the final comic will not have a Hate Sink character named Dave. Still, to mock this failed "prediction," it became common when asked anything related to the least favorite character to start bashing a non-existant person in the story known as "Dave." Basically, people who don't have a personal Scrappy can just turn to the now-imaginary Dave and bash on him, pretending as though he does exist and is the worst character imaginable. This meme was complicated a bit since an expy of his original plan, complete with the name, was the main antagonist of a later, smaller story Water wrote.[[/note]]

And where locations could be seen from a distance. To make
the Sandboxes world feel more "real" for the lack of this a better term, have it set up so that areas that are visible in the background in sections of one storyline have a very wiki, usually just high chance of being visited in later lines. Like, even something as small as a cluster of houses on a hill. Olivia's in Force Hills for one chapter and there's a small hillside residential area, then much later one of the residents asks her or her friends to pound ideas out on help her get rid of some kind of editable site. Someone who had taken note of this eventually gave out details once monster thing attacking the comic ''finally'' came out and started getting steam, which included plans place.

Connectivity would also be kind
of important. To try to avoid having accusations of "pointless characters" or underutilization, we'll ideally never see a HateSink garunteed "end" for a particular character named "Dave." Basically, unless it's just some mindless hazard of the "leak" in regards to him was "Be prepared in advance to ''really hate'' a guy named Dave..." After page after page and storyline after storyline passed, Water ''finally'' explained week that Dave was actually an idea he gets killed off. Familiarity is key -- characters should probably be introduced first through someone that the readers are already rejected, so the final comic will not have a Hate Sink character named Dave. Still, to mock familiar with, but this failed "prediction," it became common when asked anything related to the least favorite character to start bashing a non-existant person should "branch" off in that even those introduced several chapters into the story known as "Dave."

** Also, a meta example. Water is infamous for taking AnyoneCanDie to ''extremes''. To the point where he's ''disappointed'' when a story doesn't turn out to be as kill-crazy as hyped.

''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' teaches you that I don't hand out PlotArmor to the first characters introduced: We first meet Alucard, he gets a lot of focus for the first four chapters, and then he dies in the fourth, less than a third way through. Then comes ''Soap: The Lost Element'', where we meet Woat and Lum first and they're rarely encountered in both the story).

''Gumball Vs Satan'' teaches you that I won't spare a character even if their name is in the title. Gumball dies in chapter 2. Yeah, it's out of only 6, but that's still a third of the way into the story. His body's re-possessed by Jealousy or something but that's more-or-less a completely different character anyway.

Actually ''run:gifocalypse'' isn't as much of a ''Gravity Falls'' fan fic as it is a crossover between ''Gravity Falls'' and the first arc of ''Rear's End'', with a glimpse at the second arc near the very end.

No, you see:

Candy Nepeta (the "other" color out of the "fifteen," in this case a bright red) is just about the only character in the story that ''isn't'' scared of Lime Nepeta (the "chartreuse" color). Meanwhlie, in ''run:gifocalypse'', [=.GIFfany=] ("other" color, in this case pink) isn't scared of anybody ''except'' Shannon (the "chartreuse" character).



Look at me I already have this sort of made-up terminology involving real words specific to this AU like "professors," "students"/"followers," "Wires," "key cards," "the Illegal Prime Neutralizer," etc.

* DeathByAdaptation: Downplayed. The tie-in RPG Maker game has several optional added deaths, but these can all be avoided and you can still end up with an ending that kills off as many people as the original fic did. [[spoiler:By the way, yes, Ron Ejjert is still a lost cause]].
** One of the biggest changes is that after every professor battle, you're given the option to kill the given professor or spare her, whereas in the fan fic the gang automatically "spared" everyone. Note that unlike the obvious inspiration, the game presents this in a very morally ambiguous way -- apart from some dialogue near the end being altered, namely with Dove and Risen-[=.GIFfany=], there is no real reward for keeping everyone alive (though the ending shows that they do go on to use their powers for the improvement of the world, but this is hardly a huge game-changer and doesn't directly affect the main characters) and one of the game's themes is pushing to see if you'll pick that path or not just for the sake of pushing it. [[spoiler:However, it ''will'' punish you for chosing to kill all the professors -- once you reach Dian's and she's not at her desk, you know you've fucked up. Everyone from Prof. Wendy onwards would be unsparable, and Dian herself will become the hardest boss fight in the entire game. Even then, there's no sort of Fallen Child ending -- when Risen-[=.GIFfany=] is killed, everyone just moved on to their lives]]. This also reveals that the black magic-physical bodies of [=AIs=] turn into color-coded statues when killed.
** Part of the way sparing is encouraged, however, is that sometimes the clear-cut "friendly" characters from the town itself end up taking a hit if you chose to just rush through all confrontations with violence. Most notably, [[spoiler:during the first fight with Cardia, if you don't take the game's advice and try to get her to calm down and explain herself, she'll continue to fight you while possessing Waddles... and eventually burst out of him Japhet style. You can still spare Cardia herself after this, but Mabel would refuse to speak to her. While this would make Domain 5 a lot shorter (as you don't have to go through the slaughter room), you'll still have the guilt of indirectly killing a 12 year old's beloved pet pig all because you wanted to rush through things]].
** There's also an extremely obscure ending where [[spoiler:Soos ends up pulling a massive Heroic Sacrifice to save himself, also wiping out Risen-[=.GIFfany=] ]], but it's [[GuideDangIt extremely hard to find]], a borderline joke ending, and mostly clashes with the tone of the original fic.
** This gives you the option to kill off non-[=.GIFfany=] copy-monsters of the week too, like the Shape-Shifter or the second Trickster, or all of the new ones dotted around the domains. If the character appeared in the original ''[=RunGif=]'', they didn't die.

** Yes, Peppermint was being accurate when she said that no fairy's Ability can involve outright time travel or permenantly manipulating one's emotions/thought ways (though there are forms of mind control, but they're rarely encountered in the story). Water also went on to say that no Ability -- or anything within the story, for that matter -- can involve BreakingTheFourthWall (Peppermint doesn't mention this because that would require knowing that the fourth wall ''exists''). Water is '''extremely''' strict about this story not having any time travel[[note]]What's referred to as temporal manipulation in the story's events usually means manually making the matter slower, faster, or going backwards based on "memory" -- it goes out of its way to establish this as simply changing the way the mass moves, and not that time itself is a force being controlled[[/note]] and even moreso with meta elements.

* WordOfGod:
** And there's a lot about the Narrator/"Faux-Author," mostly because his... "writing" and how it was distinct from Fan's self-insertion was kind of confusing. Fan eventually settled on a small meta story:
*** All of the Narrators across all ''SBIG'' stories are the same person, [[RetCon and anything implying otherwise (such as the Narrator not knowing about a given other SBIG installment) are rendeered ret-conned and unofficial.]] It's one guy, male, who is not Great Pikmin Fan.
*** The Narrator is "some hyperactive perverted manchild that's actually still a teenager and in fact never ages." The in-universe backstory behind the existances of these is that Fan has finally drawn the line of what ideas he'd actually write down, so he sent a bunch over to some random guy he knew (the Narrator) and told him to go nuts so long as they followed certain conditions. ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals'', for example, was "going to be" a rather ordinary ''Homestuck'' AU where the players all lived together on Earth, the trolls still had their natural powers (Vriska could still Manipulate, Aradia still had telekinesis) but nobody had any Sburb-related abilities, and TheyFightCrime consisting of both canon and original villains. However, the Narrator's AuthorAppeal mutated it into the abomination we read it as. With ''[=EDventure=]'' Fan genuinely just sent out the idea out of curiosity, liked the result ironically, and tried sending the other ideas over the course of a while for a few more years after about a year has passed (said story in around a year being ''Zombie Attack!'').
*** Fan writes his own lines when his self-insert speaks, as well as the lines of the "sane" characters (Rip always, Dave in ''Sweet Jade and Hella John'', Jane in ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals'', etc).
*** The final chapter of ''Housestuck: The Split'' and its accompanying end card were the last things the Narrator posted before vanishing off the face of the internet.
*** The Narrator always changes his online names frequently, and they're always "long messes with too many numbers."

None of this was planned at first (except Burnda/Burrda; but there was planned to be some paralleling between Leona/Sonia and Dian/Bubbles, because of the whole visual art vs musical art and acids vs bases)

To put it briefly, Winnie the Pooh, Golden Freddy, [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} Sans,]] and a "five tentacled alien" are all the same person and best friends with George Washington, who thanks to a brief ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' clip is really Adolf Hitler, and according to the Nostalgia Critic there's a "Nega-Hitler" that did even worse things who lives ''on the moon'' which already crashed on the planet in 1987 which was covered up and somehow led to the rise of possessive sentient addictive dating simulators that are somehow directly injected into the bloodstream. After that it cuts to a voiceover of Dale Gribble saying "Too bad there's only twenty-four hours in a day!

-->'''Mat:''' ...The more familiar they are with you, the more talking to them adds to your Hunie Pot-- I feel like this whole game is bastardizing Winnie the Pooh's spel-- GOLDEN FREDDY. They're the same person. And you know who else is same? Sans. Sans is two letters off from being an anagram of "same." In this fan-made image, Sans talks about "president." Based on our timeline that places ''Undertale'' before the Bite of 76, which can only mean that they're friends with George Washington.\\
'''Artist:''' WASHINGTON! HITLER! WASHINGTON! HITLER!\\
'''Mat:''' Same person. Also,\\
'''Critic:''' There's a Nega-Hitler who did even ''worse'' things! And wasn't funny.\\

Earl's incredibly blunt narration when introducing Homer Simpson:
-->''"That's Homer. Nobody likes Homer. [[PrecisionFStrike Fuck Homer.]]"''
* [[WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory Lloyd]] repeatedly saying "We got some Jon Snow in there... we got some Jon Snow in there... we got some Jon Snow in there... we got some Jon Snow in there... we got some Jon Snow in there..." as more and more Jon Snows pile up, until there's five in total. And Martin stabs all five of them in quick succession. In a later Poop, a drunk [[Series/TheBigBangTheory Sheldon]] starts singing about the elements that make up the universe. A blank table arranged like the periodic table appears over the screen, and as Sheldon lists off elements it's filled with images approrpiately fitting them... until he says "iron" five times, just like the aformentioned "Jon Snow" RunningGag. ''Then'' he starts listing other things, like five slots of Jon Snow in the table,
table, the "shrimp" gag from ''Film/ForrestGump'',

* "FUCK DAVE."[[note]]Water used to "leak" information of sorts about ''Rear's End'' on the Sandboxes of this very wiki, usually just to pound ideas out on some kind of editable site. Someone who had taken note of this eventually gave out details once the comic ''finally'' came out and started getting steam, which included plans of a HateSink character named "Dave." Basically, the "leak" in regards to him was "Be prepared in advance to ''really hate'' a guy named Dave..." After page after page and storyline after storyline passed, Water ''finally'' explained that Dave was actually an idea he already rejected, so the final comic will not have a Hate Sink character named Dave. Still, to mock this failed "prediction," it became common when asked anything related to the least favorite character to start bashing a non-existant person in the story known as "Dave." Basically, people who don't have a personal Scrappy can just turn to the now-imaginary Dave and bash on him, pretending as though he does exist and is the worst character imaginable. This meme was complicated a bit since an expy of his original plan, complete with the name, was the main antagonist of a later, smaller story Water wrote.[[/note]]
* From the Kickstarter for the video game spinoff:
** "So please. Have a heart." Accompanied by [[StylisticSuck Shitty 3D Olivia's]] expression while saying this.[[note]]Olivia flat-out confesses that Water will probably release the game with the intentionally terrible placeholder [=3D=] models, no music or real sound effects, synthetic voice acting, and textureless single-colored objects anyway if he doesn't get the funding to make it look professional, and furthers the honestly by saying that Water would offer this game at a ''lower'' price because of its lower aesthetic value being a bigger entry barrier to buying it. She says that the only real reason to back it up would be if you have a heart, so she (after a saddened Water briefly slides on the screen) puts on a desperate expression and says the aformentioned quote.[[/note]]
** The game has a rep for being one of the few Kickstarter projects that effectively spoils its entire plot in the Kickstarter trailer.[[note]]To prove that it isn't "plot heavy" and to encourage people to actually buy it instead of relying off of (in other words, buy it for the fun playing experience)[[/note]]

* WordOfGod:
** And there's a lot about the Narrator/"Faux-Author," mostly because his... "writing" and how it was distinct from Fan's self-insertion was kind of confusing. Fan eventually settled on a small meta story:
*** All of the Narrators across all ''SBIG'' stories are the same person, [[RetCon and anything implying otherwise (such as the Narrator not knowing about a given other SBIG installment) are rendeered ret-conned and unofficial.]] It's one guy, male, who is not Great Pikmin Fan.
*** The Narrator is "some hyperactive perverted manchild that's actually still a teenager and in fact never ages." The in-universe backstory behind the existances of these is that Fan has finally drawn the line of what ideas he'd actually write down, so he sent a bunch over to some random guy he knew (the Narrator) and told him to go nuts so long as they followed certain conditions. ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals'', for example, was "going to be" a rather ordinary ''Homestuck'' AU where the players all lived together on Earth, the trolls still had their natural powers (Vriska could still Manipulate, Aradia still had telekinesis) but nobody had any Sburb-related abilities, and TheyFightCrime consisting of both canon and original villains. However, the Narrator's AuthorAppeal mutated it into the abomination we read it as. With ''[=EDventure=]'' Fan genuinely just sent out the idea out of curiosity, liked the result ironically, and tried sending the other ideas over the course of a while for a few more years after about a year has passed (said story in around a year being ''Zombie Attack!'').
*** Fan writes his own lines when his self-insert speaks, as well as the lines of the "sane" characters (Rip always, Dave in ''Sweet Jade and Hella John'', Jane in ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals'', etc).
*** The final chapter of ''Housestuck: The Split'' and its accompanying end card were the last things the Narrator posted before vanishing off the face of the internet.
*** The Narrator always changes his online names frequently, and they're always "long messes with too many numbers."
