Added DiffLines:


----

It might be aimed to be LighterAndSofter as well as, not to the point of being a full-blown {{ecchi}} fic, HotterAndSexier than [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls its original canon]], ''FanFic/RunGifocalypse'' still manages to provide

'''Unmarked spoilers ahead, and absolutely no spoilers from canon are marked. Including ''Gravity Falls: Journal 3''.'''

[[AC:General]]
* The fic's premise as a whole. You find a known supernatural, superpowered yandere out in the middle of the woods looking glitchy and distorted. But also having a physical form, something she lacked She has no memory of what happened and ''seems'' nicer at first, but as she regains memory her actions become more and more ominous. She, for all intents and purposes, finds another clone of herself that heals her. She gives that clone her own physical form and the two completely vanish. On the news, word is out that she now has an army of 15, and then she takes over the television by coldly saying that she will unleash millions of her clones on the world if she doesn't get her obsession. Just one of her was able to nearly beat you in the past. Think that over.
* Imagine that, because someone flipped a few switches by mistake, you end up being trapped in what looks like an empty black room. It's not a complete void -- there are invisible walls, an invisible floor, and an invisible ceiling. You are kind of sort-of [[TheNeedless Needless,]] so there will be no personal issues for at least a few weeks. And there's a single screen
* The sheer number of references to ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'' imply the story's sinister undertones to anyone giving it a first reading that knows about said game. Granted, [[spoiler:the good ending, if anything, is more of a complete opposite to how ''OFF'' ends and the bad ending is completely unlike the game]]

[[AC:"Gravity Falls Vs Anti-Gravity"]]
* The chapter ends with [[spoiler:[=.GIFfany=] popping the bubble the gang is on, sending them falling in to the inter-Wire void.]]

[[AC:"Game Over"]]
* Whatever the hell was that thing that attacked the Pines as they [[spoiler:fell through the void in between Wires.]] While every single other mystery in the storyline is solved or explained, this comes out of nowhere
** It's implied that this is "Professor Eve," a copy that definitely appears in ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage'', but only has some ambiguous cameos in this one. It's very telling that Fan doubled the "starter" amount of copies in ''Journals'' specifically ''just'' so that it would be ambiguous if Eve is even part of the "first generation" in RG or not.
* [=.GIFfany=]'s Main Possession. Without giving anything away, it's ''definitely'' a step up above animatronics. Giving everything away: [[spoiler:she turns the ''Planet Negation Girl itself'' into ]]

[[AC:"Game Complete"]]
* The entirety of "Game Complete" is an alternate ending where [=.GIFfany=] stops screwing around and goes on a rampage assimilating the other professors. It's bleak and especially hopeless considering how the very premise is that TheBadGuyWins, though the actual degree of which is unknown.
* This chapter is written almost ''entirely'' in first person, and ''completely'' lacks a closing note. Hell, even in the opening note, Fan... seems to have a different tone about the chapter.
** The entire meta schtick becomes NightmareRetardant if you think of it as a pissed off [=.GIFfany=] simply writing a RevengeFic, especially if Fan is viewed as less some kind of hijacked god of the world and more like one storyteller trying to stop her from taking over the whole plot.
* Hell, Fan said that he personally thinks ''this'' ending is more "canon-compliant" than "Game Over." Assuming that the [=.GIFfany=] army wasn't completely identical in every way (he admits this is a huge assumption), she'd probably end up hating them. and if she did gain that much power, well...

* There's something a little... off about the way Burnda breaks the fourth wall compared to the other characters. While with nearly everyone else, it's more of a tongue-in-cheek
tongue-in-cheek way that you would expect from a low-quality fan fic obsessed with fourth-wall humor. Burnda, on the other hand, shows a small bit of actual criticism of the story towards itself. Also, notably, she's the only character who correctly says [=.GIFfany=]'s name with the dot and the capitalization prior to chapter 6 (where there's a fake author's note specifically noting this).
* Ryan [[IronicName Christian]], the blatant expy of Brian Griffin and TakeThat at ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' as a whole. Most of the other presidential candidates are pretty much comically stupid -- from the Quimby expy that thinks he can make everyone rich by raising minimum wage to ''one million dollars'' to the old-fashioned [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill "Bank Bill"]] that single-handedly kills his popularity with a parody of the infamous Rick Perry "Strong" political ad to the '''actual''' Hank Hill. Ryan, on the other hand, is fucking nuts. He's basically what would happen if all the negativity in and criticized points of ''Family Guy'' were personified, toned up to PoliticallyIncorrectVillain levels, and ran for president in the middle of one in-progress apocalyspe (Nzyvo's attack) and another potential apolcaypse (the activation of ''Ed, Edd n Eddy: The Mis-Edventures''). Oh yeah, and he's Melody's final standing opponent in the primaries (Stan's was aformentioned Bank Bill, who, again, dropped out after realizing how much his ad killed his chances of winning). Making matters more surreal is how Fan constantly cites actual episodes of ''Family Guy'' that inspired parts of his speeches.
-->'''Question Guy:'''[[note]]Much like "Lawyer Guy," this seems to be his actual name[[/note]] Okay there's a lot of dumb kids in this country and smart kids in others. How will you fix this without just switching the names of United States and China like that Trembly guy tried.\\
'''Melody:''' I-- I really don't-- I-- er... I really can't-- I already said not to vote for m--\\
'''Ryan:''' WELL! I'll make it so that people under a certain IQ cannot have kids! Even if they want to, I WILL PERSONALLY ABORT THE WOMAN AND TAKE THE FETUS AND STEM CELL IT INTO '''SUPER CANCER'' AND GIVE IT TO [[CriticalResearchFailure THE COUNTRY OF ISLAM]] SO THAT EVERYONE WILL BE SCARED OF US!\\
'''Melody:''' ...''What?'' Guys, did you hear that? My opponent is a sociopath! Everyone, please, just move to Canada as soon as you can. If you can't by election day, out of everyone here... vote for me. I might have no idea what I'm doing, but I promise that it will be at least one week before just I run this country through the ground, that should give you more time. I also won't try to assassinate the pope.\\
''(She looks over at Ryan, who simply glares back at her.)''\\
'''Melody:''' Wait, you're ''really'' thinking of doing that? I was just joking about that last part!
* After Mable enters the picture, she creates a strange tesseract-like portal in the sky over Gravity Falls, which also warps the atmosphere so that the [[AlienSky sky is always purple and filled with giant, distorted, demonic Mabel/Mable/Nzyvo faces along with more "regular" rips in spacetim.]] Even works of fiction trying to maintain a "modern" time period have animated apocalypic sky-backgrounds. Certain cartoons in particular went as far as editing the sky in ''every single past episode'' to this to try to be "timeless," as their directors assumed that this would be permanent.



* As much of an ass as he might be, Journal 3's sheer panic as Nzyvo had just knocked everyone else out (and made Dipper flat-out ''wet himself and pass out'') and slowly starts walking over to him, preparing a Din's Fire blast. Of course, as the journals are made of paper, this would have basically spelled instant-death had Mabel not stepped in.

** Once again, Fan uses a sort-of [[TheWorfEffect Worf Effect]] in the form of "powerful character is scared/threatened by this new threat." In this case? The powerful characters are [[spoiler:the '''''gods''''' within the Journals and Mabel's Core Drill. That's right, even a quartet of Gods are scared of Mable.]]

* Once Mable's apocalypse starts, Dipper is more-or-less left alone with [=.GIFfany=]. Granted, she's been through a HeelFaceTurn, but being caught in the middle of an apocalypse that was indirectly caused because ''you simply refused to kiss someone'' and only having a former-{{yandere}} who has even more powers than she did in your first fight isn't really a good situation to be in.

* TheMonsterOfTheWeek on Mable's side[[note]]Pyronica and Teeth provide as two other Monsters of the Week in the form of a third party not affiliated with Mable[[/note]] is the "Archangel," an insanely powerful [[Wiki/SCPFoundation Clef's SCP-001 Proposal]] expy that . Granted, if the lack of research doesn't kill any scare factor,
* Leave it to this story to make even the fact that Bill Cipher suddenly "dies" in of itself into this. The reason? There's already a powerful RealityWarper trying to cause the apocalypse. [[EnemyMine Bill is actually one of the best potential opponents that could stop Mable's tesseract portal,]] but for reasons completely unrelated to the story, he dies. Which leaves the control of the universe to lean closer to Mable's.



* The only reason for why this "filler-y" chapter even exists is because the heroes, for all intents and purposes, are ''procrastinating saving reality from being ripped apart and their planet from being destroyed by a HumanoidAbomination''. (Respectively, ''Mis-Edventures'' and Mable.)
* The "President of Canada" is a ''very'' threatening force. When he sees Dipper's mooning as an insult to his entire country, he unleashes a ''flying saucer apocalypse'' on the United States. As he puts it best:

* The town's major social split. And no, it has nothing (or... very little) to do with the election B-plot. Or the growing apocalypse on Mable's part. It all started because of a ''mooning prank''. While other people outside of Gravity Falls barely give a rat's ass about the incident (given that this is supposed to represent a VocalMinority), Tambry and Manly Dan both firmly try to split the show's regulars and background characters to . Crosses into NightmareRetardant given how Dipper's solution to the problem, which actually works, is to [[spoiler:just break their phones]].

* Practically everything involving the Cathedral. After figuring out that the gateway to Tengen Toppa mechas lie within the "Giga Key," which is in a place called the "Cathedral," Kyu gives everyone a way to teleport over there. The place is a MindScrew, to say the least. It's full of

* Remember Professor Eve's "betrayal tendancies" that were seemingly dropped after being mentioned in chapter 4? Well... [[spoiler:]]



That too, yeah. When she asked "You can talk" I was thinking "Oh ''really'', ''you're'' the one to ask that." Hence, in RG, when Burrda finally says something instead of making electronics display messages, one of the frogs from Domain 8 -- of all people -- asks "You can talk?" And, because everyone thought it was just a frog, of course they're like "Well look at who's asking the question."

* In "Sassy Cat and Talking Bulldog Corps," she ''finally'' gets a chance to use her "special attack" without anyone knocking her over before she could do anything more than glow. [[spoiler:It's a series of spikes with hearts on the end that deal a tiny amount of damage on paper, but constantly deal that damage for the time contact was held -- in effect, it copies the "one hit per frame" mechanic used in ''Undertale''. Keep in mind that Kyu ''regularly'' uses these in her battle, and '''her''' "special attack" was a Brimstone laser so large that it splits the entire planet in half.]]

** Actually, there is a ''startling'' number of times where Mabel, even the specific character of Mabel Pines of ''Gravity Falls'', has her name mispelled as "Mable." Every time this accidentaly happens and said... post, edit, whatever ends up getting ''published'', you are making Mable the Typomonster stronger. Oh yeah, and correcting it will not solve the problem. She's powered by an all-too-common ''[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou spelling mistake.]]''

She's clearly [[HeroicBSOD bluescreened]] by it, and during her brief cameo at the end of the ''[=SBIGlet=]'' interquel, still hasn't completely recovered.]]

** One last not-secret: Soos has a [[Webcomic/SweetJadeAndHellaJohn "Pissed the Fuck Off"]]/"Rage Mode" mechanic. It's already bad enough that any version of '''[[OOCIsSeriousBusiness Soos]]''' turns into an unstoppable rage is bad enough; it's worse when said mode involves him growing in size, looking somewhat like someone with [[Manga/{{Naruto}} the Gate of Life opened,]] with veiny red skin and blank white eyes.
*** For obvious reasons, harm done to his loved ones is the fastest way to raise his meter. Dipper and Melody are the only "vulnerable" assists, and Melody does not suffer any real injuries aside from ClothingDamage, so Fan does not count that towards his score. Cue players summoning Dipper just to put him in harm's way over and over again to efficiently build up the Rage Gauge.
*** If the Rage Mode is not completely activated, you can cool the gauge down by using a hyper where he bathes with Melody, Rumble, and [=.GIFfany=]. Trying to use this ''while'' he's in PTFO Mode just results in him throwing the bath-tub away, with a scared shitless-[=.GIFfany=] rushing up to him to try hosing down his back. The grin she makes sells that she knows it won't work, but Soos ends up backhanding her anyway.

*** Lastly, there's a brand new addition: Professor Eve.

* A kick from Nzyvo can send Professor Dove flying a short distance. This might not seem bad, until you remember one of Dove's [[NighInvulnerable specialties.]] In ''run:gifocalypse'', she survives [[spoiler:getting mega-nuked with hardly a scratch]]
* As much of an ass as he might be, Journal 3's sheer panic as Nzyvo had just knocked everyone else out (and made Dipper flat-out ''wet himself and pass out'') and slowly starts walking over to him, preparing a Din's Fire blast. Of course, as the journals are made of paper, this would have basically spelled instant-death had Mabel not stepped in.
** The story at least tries to justify some of Nzyvo's shadier actions from the first half, if [[StylisticSuck poorly.]] But this? She already had everything she need. Journal 3 may have been rude to Dipper and constantly pressured him on missions, but he never really did anything ''evil''. Yet Nzyvo seemed ''sadistically'' hell-bent on attacking him. Why? This was probably already obvious since the "reveal," but is Nzyvo really as good as the narrative tries to paint her as? The fact that she [[spoiler:conveniently bailed out ''right'' before Kyu judged the gang]] is also suspicious.

She basically threatens to unleash several EldritchAbomination[=s=] to destroy the planet . Oh yes, and '''[[OneManArmy Nzyvo]] [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction Fucking]] [[ParodySue Northwest]]''', the same person who basically took on the ''entire'' first-gen villain roster of ''run:gifocalypse'' times two ([[spoiler:minus [=.GIFfany=] #9 having the rift]]) without breaking a sweat, is afraid of her.

[=.GIFfany=] sounds ''incredibly'' threatening and uses some sort of Gaster Blaster/Brimstone Grimace expy (it's also noteworthy that this is technically the first time [=.GIFfany=] ever "fought hard" specifically with her own tools in ''SBIG'', and not by possessing the environment, explaining why she uses the lasers ''now''). Melody... is more interesting. She seems to be regretful of something. Soos actually tries prodding at this, and she eventually lets something slip. The name Project '''Plank.''']]

** Get at least 3,000 power and try implimenting the cheat code used to bring Rumble to life[[note]]The code Dipper said out loud and the code written on the cabinet were both different; because of this, Fan made it so that entering either one of them would still work[[/note]]. Soos will appear to prepare a move. [[spoiler:Watch as ''the screen shuts off'' (like a television), a static background appears, and a [=.GIFfany=] dressed in a uniform with a slightly different color scheme suddenly pops up to stare directly at the player, smirking. She will say, in text with a strange red-green-blue shaking shadow effect, that she is thankful that you freed her. The game resumes as normally, except this copy will immediately bombard the stage with gigantic, blood-stained pixelly-knives. (They may just be sprites taken from ''Binding of Isaac: Rebirth'', but the sheer fact that they are pixel-like is an eyebrow-raiser. Everything else about this character, including this copy herself, keeps the intentionally crappy MS Paint art style.) Say hello to Professor Eve, who from this point until the match ends, has a 50/50 chance of replacing Soos's [=.GIFfany=] summon and may switch the "usual" lightning attack with throwing a projectile that resembles a screaming electrical face. Oh, and it the match ends and it's in a mode that sends you straight to the win screen/character selection, she'll tint the entire screen red. Oh yeah, this applies for outside of the match, and sticks until you start a new one. Did you know that UHS's victory portrait actually has a hidden giant smiley face that looks like it was drawn in blood? Well, the palette effect she throws on this will definitely show you that.]]
** It's not ''nearly'' as bad as Lime Nepeta's warnings that gradually escalate to a screen-filling NightmareFace, but as with most of Fan's characters, UHS's sprite sheet begins with a warning telling you that looking through his files may spoil some hidden secrets. Naturally, as the established four-wall screwer of the foursome, [=.GIFfany=] is the one to give the warning. Again, it's rather tame, she's portrayed as being sincere and never tries to pull any NightmareFace[=s=] or scare tactacs. But her last line ''does'' say that you might "free something that shouldn't be." [[spoiler:As the first sub-bullet indicates, she's talking about Professor Eve. Who is, again, somehow far more creepypasta-y than [=.GIFfany=]'s starter "haunted video game" concept.]]
** For a non-EasterEgg example: "[[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} Photoshop]] [=.GIFfany=]" shows up here as the strong version of her assist summon. While it's really made in Gimp, and follows more of a 16 bit-like design as opposed to a photo-realistic one, ''[[UncannyValley that giant pink eye]]''[[labelnote:For those curious...]]The sprite of the eye comes from the GainaxEnding of ''VideoGame/TrioThePunch'', just colored pink instead of orange. This is also where the hidden "YOU FIGURED IT OUT" comes from[[/labelnote]]. [[spoiler:Professor Eve's variation is, unsurprisingly, a hell of a lot worse, .]]
** Another non-secret is [[BewareTheNiceOnes Professor Shannon's]] cameo. Her Main Possession, where she ropes herself into some sort of exponential loop that involves possessing her own reflection, bringing it to life, and adding it on to her body, makes the end result look like something straight out of [[VideoGame/YumeNikki the White Desert.]] Oh yeah, and you get a warning when she's about to attack with her MP in the form of a siren. A very '''loud''' siren.

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Professors Kathody, Searah, and Shannon. Sandy is Ambiguously Pale. Cardia is Ambiguously Orange, and teeters the line between "something that could be a natural skin color" and "flat-out techncolor skin." Rose (pink), Bubbles (red), Leona (yellow), Dian (green), Burnda and Burrda (both cyan), Sonia (blue), Wendy (purple), and Dove (gray) are outright [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation technicolor,]] though. Fan's "concept sketches" show that even Rose's pink, Bubbles's red, and Leona's yellow are nowhere near realistic skin colors.
* DeliberateValuesDissonance:
** [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl None of the copies have any sense of modesty whatsoever,]] and their primary motivation for dressing up is to look nice. This presents a clash
** Professor Wendy's domain, which is populated by ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' fans who even take some of the more questionable things about the show to absolute heart, is and led by one. [[OneSteveLimit (Prof.)]] Wendy herself [[EstablishingCharacterMoment establishes]] this right away by embracing what Fan thinks is one of the more sexist episodes of the show, "Cheer Factor," and flat-out took the "cheerleaders should aim to pep up the football team rather than performing their own feats" idea and interpreted that as "Women should ideally just serve themselves as support for what the men do, because that's what really matters." And it goes downhill from there until she develops out of it. She has strong WouldntHitAGirl standards that she attempts to force on Dipper and Soos[[note]]None of the other copies find it any worse of an issue when they attack them, like Leona being more bothered about Dipper and Mabel vandalizing her work than Dipper trying to attack her. ''Nobody'' also notes that Soos, for all intents and purposes, ''threw Risen-[=.GIFfany=] into a fire'' in canon's events except Risen-[=.GIFfany=] herself and Professor Wendy, as the rest justify his action under self-defense.[[/note]] despite being physically stronger than either of them will ever be and the former being only 12 years old. Then she attempts to force the guys into a deadly, SeriousBusiness variant of American Football... Considering how the other [=.GIFfany=] copies up to and after this point have been remarkably neutral when it comes to gender (outside of Risen-[=.GIFfany=] targetting real girls, [[MurderTheHypotenuse but "that's because" it's the group Soos is attracted to]]), to the point where nobody bats an eye at three of the professors (Kathody, Dian, and Shannon -- note that Wendy's placement in the "professor daisy chain" is ''right between the latter two'', something Fan admits is a coincidence[[note]]He picked the three professors at random[[/note]]) being in lesbian relationships with their last (or rather current, but things get complicated in "Game Over" when all the professor meet with their players in-person again) players, this comes off as very jarring.\\
\\
[[HypocriticalHumor Ironically,]] Professor Wendy's domain also has a high amount of traditionally "masculine" activities that her all-female copy army are in, possibly second only to Dove's outright militant forces. Her student copies include American football players, (''flying'') car and other vehicle mechanics, vehicle builders, robot makers, and barbecue experts. [[InsaneTrollLogic Although her logic is that she's ultimately doing this to "support" her male player, so it loops back to the "cheerleading" thing.]]
* WorstNewsJudgmentEver:
** At the end of "Game Over," much like in a gag from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', [[spoiler:"Sapient Physical Artificial Intelligence Beings Agreed to Sharing All Technology With Humanity" is a side-line. The top headline? "TRILLIONS OF NAKED WOMEN FALL FROM THE SKY," which more-or-less describes the ''exact same event''.]]
** Immediately after the newspaper is described, the story also mentions that Dove kept local Gravity Falls newspapers[[note]]Everywhere else in the world mostly bought the cover-story that it was a leaked government mishap; the story became impossible to cover (read: the Earth-sized fortress was revealed and within ''clear'' viewing distance, the "entrance" being closest to the Earth and directly aligned with Gravity Falls)[[/note]] from the first three days of the Gifocalypse (the above-mentioned paper came out on the "fourth" day, or more accurately after the Gifocalypse-"invasion" was over) while undercover and asking Toby/Bodacious T. (who didn't recognize her) if she could collect them after he was done reading them. The front-page headline for the first day (the one with the world-wide broadcast) is "Full Pitt Cola Can Found in Lake -- Who Would Throw Away Such a Good Drink?" while a side topic (which was covered on the news station, as seen in chapter 1) is "Growing Band of Theives Steal Video Games; Make Cryptic Message Threatening Earth." By the second day, the Gifocalypse ''is'' moved to top-headline level news... except since there is no actual news on it, it's focused on various conspiracy theories instead, and titled "Missing Video Game Copies Signs of Cthulhu?"[[note]]Hey, at least they were right about tentacles being involved...[[/note]] with a side-article reading "Giant Space Craft Discovered Under Town -- Possibly Extra-terrestrial in Origin," which is ''much'' more definite and interesting than the Gifocalypse at that point. On the third? "Northwest Girl Eats a Sandwich" makes the top headline (the actual article is an overly-analytical essay about the "implications" of this), "Technological Wind-Person Sells Working Flying Cars and Jetpacks in India -- Also Aiming to Remove Greenhouse Gases" is on the side.

* {{Anvilicious}}: Picking which aesop has the most subelty to it is rather difficult, as they're all rather heavy-handed.
** "Don't fall into ruts and question if a 'tradition' is really harmless or just a sign of very backwards thinking" is one that's explored at least twice (Professors Cardia and Wendy), if not three times (Professor Sandy). This is also part of the greater "Don't lock yourself away from others," something nearly all professors are guilty of and they develop out of it when the gang, for lack of a better term, forces the group
* HilariousInHindsight:
** In the original chapter 6, Professor Bubbles nabs the journals, flips through #2, and melts them after finding out that Ford never wrote anything about [=.GIFfany=]. Well, ''Journal 3'' reveals that this is true... ''Ford'' never wrote about her. Bubbles effectively melted Soos's entry without even knowing about it. This got a nod in chapter 8's update retcon, where Soos briefly tries to mention that there ''is'' information on [=.GIFfany=] in general (or rather, the Risen One), but Bubbles refused to listen. [[BrickJoke Fast-foreward to "Game Over,"]] where Bubbles reveals that she melted the journals in front of both Ford and [=.GIFfany=], and the latter already knew about Soos's entry on her. Cue Ford being pissed off, while Risen '''goes ballistic'''.
* JerkassWoobie:
** Professor Dove is an unusual case in that, aside from several comments scattered in every chapter that imply that the other professors don't really like her, we find out about her "woobie" part ''before'' the jerkass part[[note]]This was intentional. Fan wanted a character that was "less 'here's an asshole, OH WAIT now here's how they became an asshole feel a lot more sorry for them' and more 'here's someone with a horrible story, OH WAIT they turned into an asshole because of that hrm'[[/note]]. Basically, she's the first ever copy of ''Romance Academy 7''. While the others all have memories of the "deletion incident," the fic gives an in-depth look at what happened while also explaining Dove's story specifically. Just after being given sapience,
** Hell, Dove's last player. He initially seems like a jackass fratboy that toyed around with the [=.GIFfany=] copy after finding out she was sapient out of sheer boredom and threatened to kill her several times. Then he appears in person during "Game Over," and suddenly he steps into a more sympathetic side. [[FreudianExcuse His father was killed by a rogue, malfunctioned robot with AI when he was only thirteen,]] so he doesn't take very kindly to sapient technology. As he outright tells to Dove (in a very similar manner to how Dove insulted humanity), it turns out his paranoia was proven right when he found out more about what the [=.GIFfany=] army has ''actually done''. [[spoiler:When it's pointed out that, ultimately, he had several other negative encounters with sapient programs to the point where ''none'' of them were good, much like how none of Dove's pre-Gifocalypse encounters with humans were good, the two of them both decide that they've done some wrong things and agree to make ammends.]]
* {{Narm}}:
** In a meta example, it's kind of hard to take this seriously if you know that the story's ''very own author'' not only wrote another fic which listed faults in the story's logic (or why [=.GIFfany=], copy army or no, would likely not do this) and had no backup counter-arguments, but said fic was a StylisticSuck one at that. ''The Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage'' makes more sense than ''run:gifocalypse'' depending on how you look at things.
** The portion of chapter 10 spent on Shannon's domain (which is roughly 3/4ths of the chapter to boot -- unlike chapter 3 attempting to give Kathody and Searah's domains roughly equal screentime, Fan thought it would be better-paced if the ''King of the Hill'' fanclub did not get as much exposure as the other location of the chapter) attempts to be a horror-fest, much like its inspiration of [[VideoGame/{{OFF}} Zone 3.]] It also attempts to throw in humor here and there. The end result falls under this. Probably the most jarring is when Shannon reveals herself -- Professor Wendy ''still'' insists on barging into fights to try stalking the humans (at least with the Glitch attacking her, it felt like it was better suited narratively), Wendy Corduroy at one point vacuums her anti-climactically (which is especially jarring since she was the one professor who actually would have '''won''' had she not had an emotional breakdown for thinking that her winning was impossible), and the story briefly pauses as it not only describes P. Wendy's self-inflicted ClothingDamage, but also cites the inspiration for them much like P. Wendy keeps citing the episodes her viewpoints are based off of. It was intended to be a mini-ShooOutTheClowns moment with P. Wendy being the "clown," but it really just kills off a good chunk of the tension when the group faces off with Shannon shortly after.
** "Kathody" and "Searah" are at least supposed to be viewed as more "regular lighthearted episodic romp"-ish villains of the week, so their overly forced pun names made sense. Burnda and Burrda, on the other hand, are post-CerebusSyndrome professors. The burn/burr pun, which was taken directly from ''Mario'' of all things, doesn't really fit well with moments that are supposed to be dramatic.
* StrawmanHasAPoint:
** Dipper is supposed to be seen as being [[SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers way too cynical to the copies]] in Arc 1 (he spends Arc 2 gradually mellowing out to them, to the point where he's actually willing to hear Professor Dian out even when Professor Sonia immediately before attacked him). The thing is, the evidence really does stack against the [=.GIFfany=] copies. Dipper already had an experience with fighting clones of himself over a crush, and had trouble dealing with ''one'' [=.GIFfany=]. This is millions of copies of a person with a confirmed unhealthy obsession, who have made it very clear that they intend to litter the world with a rather threatening message that the army broadcasted on ''every electronic in the planet''. Even after Rose's introduction and Dipper still thinks that she's the exception, not the rule, it's not completely unreasonable that he wouldn't greet Domain 2 with open arms even after seeing how nice the inhabitants of Domain 1 were. This isn't even mentioning the sheer number of copies that ''do'' attack the gang completely unprovoked: [[spoiler:Kathody, Searah, Sandy (who actually considered ''sacrificing'' them), Cardia, Leona, Sonia, to an extent Wendy, Dove, and of course [=.GIFfany=] herself. That's well over ''half'' of the professors.]] Nor is it mentioning that this fan fic marks a big idealistic leap compared to canon (this, to simplify things, takes place shortly after "The Last Mabelcorn"), which portrayed its Monsters of the Week as ruthless and unreasonable monsters.
** Professor Cardia. Yes, going nuts, locking yourself off from everyone else, and kidnapping Mabel's pet pig with the intent to kill him to show that pig meat can ''also'' be pretty tasty, and attacking the human group with a dragon she possessed was [[DisproportionateRetribution overkill.]] But the way her followers directly disobeyed her orders and switched to a different kind of meat without her permission ''was'' really dickish of them, as she's the manager of their entire fast food establishment. While she ends up learning to talk things out with her followers, as she ends up agreeing with the switch simply because she ''can't'' really argue with the benefits dragon meat has over pig/chicken/cow meat, it seems more fitting that her ''students'' could have learned about talking things out instead of leaping to crazy conclusions. If even one of them had just told Cardia "Hey, we found these dragons, their meat is tastier, self-preserving, easier to cook, they're more plentiful than some of the other least concern animals, they also really heal you and help you life longer, etc" chances are Cardia would have listened, not suffered from a breakdown, and would not have been hostile to Soos and company when they met her.
** Ford is supposed to be viewed in the wrong for the way he judges Stan and refuses to even consider him as a possible ally when they're both captured and taken on the Construction Site. The fact that he considered Burnda -- someone involved with [=.GIFfany=] and a person whom he only really knew about for two days (at the time he was asked this) -- as being more trustworthy than him was supposed to show how much he still held the grudge (considering how this splits from canon after "Last Mabelcorn," and thus Weirdmageddon doesn't happen and they don't make amends). Considering how Stan practically falls over and starts liking [=.GIFfany=] almost blindly, even though this is after he's told in-fic that she was the one who outright sent an animatronic badger out to attack him and used more animatronics to attack his family, Stan was virtually being TheLoad at that point. Contrasted to Burnda, who showed a far more rebellious side than Stan ever had by that point. By the time Stan ''finally'' reconsiders that he shouldn't basically move his business towards the ultimate project she was building, it took him walking in on her making out with a Soos dummy while holding a Melody dummy over a fake pool of sharks to convince him that, you know, ''maybe the psycho ex-girlfriend that tried to kill out of obsession and made this whole place out of the same obsession'' may not be the most mentally-sound person alive. With all of this in mind, Ford seemed absolutely right to give up on trying to get Stan on his side so easily.

AudienceAlienatingPremise

* A number of Great Pikmin Fan's works, while usually not squicky or controversial, fall under this usually by simply being ''weird'' or suffering heavily through ContinuityLockOut.
** ''The Hill King'' takes ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' and aims to go for a NarmCharm-filled CrackFic ride full of magic powers, the occasional canon {{Jerkass}} of the Week being made into some sort of magic enemies that ''also'' invoke MundaneMadeAwesome, but it also has continuity and a bit of a story arc. Fans of ''King of the Hill'' in general likely would not want to see their show, which made a special point of being "mundane," turned into something of a WidgetSeries-like romp. People who ''do'' like those sort of things tend to avoid ''King of the Hill'' fan fiction, again due to the show's mundane element. In effect, most people would only gravitate towards it if they've already read something else by Fan, especially if they want to know where the hell his ''King of the Hill'' RunningGag-related jokes come from.
** ''FanFic/RunGifocalypse'' has more of an Audience Alienating Execution. On paper, a ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' fanwork where [=.GIFfany=] is ascended as the main antagonist and commands an army of her copies to try to take Soos back by force isn't that bad on its own. However, its two biggest alienators (though they're heavily tied together to the point where they might as well count as the same thing) are the OC-centric-ness of the fic and how much of the canonical cast is absent until the last few chapters. In the case of the latter, the author warns readers in advance that several popular characters -- including Pacifica and even BigBad Bill Cipher -- will not be in for most of the story, with Dipper, Mabel, Soos, Wendy, Stan, [[spoiler:Ford]], and [=.GIFfany=] being the only canon characters with constant focus. All of [=.GIFfany=]'s copies except the one ''from'' canon are, for all intents and purposes, original characters that happened to share a backstory and some elements with [=.GIFfany=], and are related to her. They're not the ''main'' stars of the story and more like the QuirkyMinibossSquad, and they don't really have more than one chapter of main focus then have all screentime shoved off to them appearing at the end of a chapter, ''and'' they all ''do'' end up getting foiled in some way or another by the Pines twins and company. None of this changes the fact that there are more original characters than there are canonical characters that make an appearance until chapter 12 rolls by.
** ''Bl:oo<dswap: Guess Who's Getting a Spinoff?'' Take the issues of ''run:gifocalypse'', replace [=.GIFfany=] with [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Nepeta]] (and Bill and Pacifica with, for example, Karkat and Kanaya) and add on ''truckloads'' of DarknessInducedAudienceApathy, and you've got ''Bl:oo<dswap''. The idea that the original trolls are all replaced by a Nepeta with the same blood color sounds more suited for a short joke story. It's not -- from the get go, the whole thing aims to be a surrealistic MindScrew mystery where every chapter until the end is planned to answer some questions, but raise more. Most of the canon trolls have been shoved off to just be Dreambubble fodder due to the way the fic works[[labelnote:Spoilers]]This is a "proper-AU session" ('''not''' a doomed timeline, as Fan stresses) where the all-Nepeta session is actually the result of the trolls needing to Scratch more than twice -- a second Scratch, due to Meulin and her ancestor ending up "contaminating" the Cardinal Movement and being mixed in with it during the Scratch, created an all-Meulin session. They ended up Scratching, creating an all-Nepeta session[[/labelnote]], Roxy is made into a paranoid nutcase thanks to [[spoiler:Lime Nepeta]] having haunted her since she was a child, and AnyoneCanDie when it comes to the humans is in full effect. People who like a mystery and darkness would be put off by the silly-sounding concept of there being twelve Nepetas trying to play Sgrub together. Those that like Nepeta and want to see her dealing with multiple bloodswaps of herself would be put off by the bleakness and complexity of it all. There is a happy ending, but it takes until a lot of suffering before getting there.
** ''Steven Helps out the Ordinary Humans'' is pretty much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin -- episodes of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' centered around the issues with the human cast of Beach City and Steven helping them with little to no magic involvement or Gem-related businesses have been a... divisive point in the series. This fic paints such a subject as its selling point. Even though the title tries to trick the readers through ExactWords into thinking it's effectively one long "Shirt Club" or "Sadie's Song" when in reality it's Fan's standard fare adventure romps, this does more harm than good -- people who ''did'' want to just see a fic centered around the human cast without much magic would be turned off by the complicated CrackFic plotline, and those who wanted to see them Take Levels in Badass like Connie did and go on their own adventures would have enjoyed it much more if A: the beginning and ''title'' did not dissuade them before and B: ''more Gems becides Steven got involved with their missions too''.[[note]]Funny enough, ''Helps'' was the retooling of something that Fan thought nobody would really like because of its greater CrackFic nature. Given the name of ''...I Thought Those Were the Ingredients'', this [[/note]]
** He tries to make it an anual thing to have a CrackFic crossover. However, unlike well-known crack crossovers, he does ''not'' settle for taking two highly popular series at the time and crossing them together off of FriendlyFandoms[=/=]FandomRivalry[=/=]CounterpartComparison[=/=]etc. Usually ''(at least)'' one of the things isn't very popular in of itself. This has included, but is not limited to, ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' and his own ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' badfic; ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' and ''WesternAnimation/PerfectHairForever'' (this one eventually went on to have more sequel-related fics to its name -- a huge honor by Fan's standards, as he tends to not like giving his stories sequels); ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/BrandyAndMrWhiskers'' (though this one was based on an idea he had as a kid)
** ''naruto the guy with the ninja'' is unique among his StylisticSuck works in that it's actually a specific parody of a fan fic genre (the rest of the ''SBIG'' installments simply go from goofing off with vague ties to canon to a re-imagining of a plotline of sorts). In this case, "overpowered harem" fan fiction. For people that like these, the fic comes off as ''extremely'' insulting -- even Fan himself admits that it was never supposed to be him flat-out saying that harem fics are bad so much as him trying to write a DeconstructiveParody of it. To those that ''don't'' like fics which overpowered a certain character (usually the main one) and give them a number of two-dimensional love interests, it comes off as uncreative PreachingToTheChoir. As a ''SBIG'' installment, it also has the general point against it for Fan's intentionally sloppy style, which does ''not'' litter it with spelling mistakes, but Fan ''will'' [[ThrowItIn keep any genuine spelling mistakes he makes unless it makes the story too confusing to read.]]
** ''Paper John: Sticker Star''. It's bad enough that ''Homestuck''[='=]s popularity was in something of a decline (or at least its fandom activity) even before it ended, but crossing it with a ''very'' [[VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar divisive game]] with a wide hatebase just to poke fun at crossovers is practically a giant "do not read" sign right there. Even though the plot pulls a complete 180 and goes off on an original and bizarre direction, the combination of following the story of ''Sticker Star'' a little ''too'' faithfully for the first few chapters, combined with Karkat (taking the role of Kersti) being [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] to intentionally unlikeable levels put a lot of readers off.

* Original(/as [=NeedsMoreDeepWater=]):
** This is why ''Attacking the HRT'' was subjected to MagnumOpusDissonance. ''THE BEST FAMILY'' ended up working out because it was a sort-of compromise between Water's "usual subject matter" (large, complicated, continuity-filled plotlines) and a standard and more relatable sitcom romp. Plus, the concept of five ''vastly'' different households, all fantasy-like to varrying degrees, living right next to one-another on the same block worked out perfectly fine. ''HRT'', on the other hand, tried to be too many things at once. It was a very complicated, character-focused story that explored various fantasy worlds and repeatedly discussed the topic of making a utopia, with most of the major characters having their own opinions on how to do that and making unique systems for it. Basically like a LighterAndSofter ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'', minus the [[spoiler:Villain Protagonist]]. The large defining flaw is that all of the cast barring the TokenHuman (and even then, s/he still goes around wearing little) is a RidiculouslyHumanRobot (''sort of'')... that goes around nearly naked, and the exceptionally powerful leaders of the "domains" all outright have nothing but their respective "elements" covering their crotches -- breasts (unless you pick the all-male option) and butts are barred. People who wanted a character development-focused game with unique world settings were put off by the sheer nudity. Anyone expecting this to be a flat-out fanservicefest would be disappointed -- the characters are never really sexualized, the nudity is treated as a completely casual thing, and there's so much going on and so many characters to account for that you practically have to be paying attention to the plot. You could censor nipples or add clothing, but the damage to newcomers had been done. Much to Water's chagrin (the latter could be a huge pet peeve of his on a bad day and something he even considers an {{Acceptable Target|s}} on a good day), this loses points because the characters are ''[[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Shameless]]'' Fanservice Girls (or Guys, again depending on the options) rather than ''[[ReluctantFanserviceGirl Reluctant]]'' -- the latter tends to be far more popular when it comes to fanservice tropes.

''THE BEST FAMILY'' ended up working out because it was a sort-of compromise between Water's "usual subject matter" (large, complicated, continuity-filled plotlines) and a standard and more relatable sitcom romp. Plus, the concept of five ''vastly'' different households, all fantasy-like to varrying degrees, living right next to one-another on the same block worked out perfectly fine. ''HRT'', on the other hand, tried to be too many things at once. It was a very complicated, character-focused story that explored various fantasy worlds and repeatedly discussed the topic of making a utopia, with most of the major characters having their own opinions on how to do that and making unique systems for it. Basically like a LighterAndSofter ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'', minus the [[spoiler:Villain Protagonist]]. The large defining flaw is that all of the cast barring the TokenHuman (and even then, s/he still goes around wearing little) is a RidiculouslyHumanRobot (''sort of'')... that goes around nearly naked, and the exceptionally powerful leaders of the "domains" all outright have nothing but their respective "elements" covering their crotches -- breasts (unless you pick the all-male option) and butts are barred. People who wanted a character development-focused game with unique world settings were put off by the sheer nudity. Anyone expecting this to be a flat-out fanservicefest would be disappointed -- the characters are never really sexualized, the nudity is treated as a completely casual thing, and there's so much going on and so many characters to account for that you practically have to be paying attention to the plot. You could censor nipples or add clothing, but the damage to newcomers had been done. Much to Water's chagrin (the latter could be a huge pet peeve of his on a bad day and something he even considers an {{Acceptable Target|s}} on a good day), this loses points because the characters are ''[[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Shameless]]'' Fanservice Girls (or Guys, again depending on the options) rather than ''[[ReluctantFanserviceGirl Reluctant]]'' -- the latter tends to be far more popular when it comes to fanservice tropes.

Just quickly putting this down so I won't have to keep opening up chapter 4's file to get the quote:
* At one point Soos says "fu-I'm sorry I don't swear-cking" in place of a swear in chapter 4.



[[/folder]]

I've thought of something like this (''Binding of Isaac'' spoilers?):
* She'll judge Soos around chapter 7 or so of ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage'' (past the halfway mark cliffhanger, but not in the planned BizarroEpisode of chapter 8 or when they're already in space). He's the "good (enough)" example when it comes to "harem fics" -- she'll offer a beam of light-based transportation system to a cathedral.
* She'll try to judge Harold in a quick cameo near the end of ''Total Drama World Tour Rewrite'', but end up kind of confused at the fic's story and eventually decide that maybe he's not worth judging, especially as it seems like the "harem plotline" is crumbling apart.
* She'll judge Naruto at the end of ''naruto the guy with the ninja''. As Naruto here is a mass-brainwasher, she'll immediately find him guilty and spawn a trap door right below him leading him to a black cave where she'll lead him to a room where she basically [[AC:makes him have a bad time.]]
* She doesn't judge Carl in ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' because neither her game nor ''Undertale'' existed back when HUC was written. Same reason for the Rainbow Crew, on top of them mutally being a giant mess. Also, if the stories are connected via multiverse thing, I'd prefer just having one incarnation in that multiverse unless they're specifically part of the "reincarnation curse"[[note]]IE Dipper, Mabel, Creepypasta Sonic, Kyu, etc would be exclusive to Multiverse A (and the different timelines and such within, of course); Stan Smith, Cleveland Brown, etc are exclusive to Multiverse B; Isaacites, the ''Ed, Edd n Eddy'' cast, etc are exclusive to Multiverse C; and Jaws the Shark etc are exclusive to Multiverse D. With the exception of things like appearing in series and Silencer's ability to bring series to life.[[/note]]

It's different Kyus in all stories, think of it like how the Ezekiel in TDWTR is different from the Ezekiel in TZP or the Ezekiel in THI.

[[AC:General]]




[[AC:"The Summer of Light Brings a Summer of Courage"]]

[[AC:"Old Foes, New Tricks. New Foes, Newer Tricks"]]

[[AC:"Onwards to the Journey to the Final Boss"]]
* Not-Bill is a deconstruction of

[[AC:"Soos in Giffany Land"]]
* "Soos in Giffany [sic] Land" starts off as standard fare. However, once Soos, Melody, Rumble, and [=.GIFfany=] enter the eponymous "Land" to try to [[spoiler:reason enough with the poison-specialist [=.GIFfanys=] and get a cure for the poison inside Stan and the Trickster]], well... [[WordOfGod Fan describes]] the result as being to ''run:gifocalypse'' what ''Underfell'' is to ''Undertale''. Basically, every single professor is now a hostile {{yandere}} to Soos -- even though RG implied that they started off as yanderes to their respective players, some of them were significantly nicer to the protagonists (making it a very bizarre ''secondary character'' variation of ProtagonistCenteredMorality -- if they're being nice to the heroes, they're considered "morally good") as they were dealing with people who were not directly interfering with their "relationship" -- just delaying a bit of time, if anything. [=.GIFfany=] #9 (the canonical copy) tries to play along with them at first, and just seduces Soos instead of resorting to violence (until she threatens to use her "special attack," [[spoiler:which isn't revealed until "Sassy" in ''[=SBIGlets=]'']]), but after meeting the professors directly she's scared shitless of them and immediately tries to form a truce with the two humans to ''get the hell out of there''.
** What's even worse is that, again, in ''run:gifocalypse'', the copies had crushes on different people that held no relation to the Pines and company.[[note]]Except Dove and the twins -- all three of which blew off their players for different reasons. While Burnda and Burrda both mutually agreed that being so obsessive over a player no matter what instead of trying to get to know the player is stupid and started carying more about having fun than getting player affection (not that they were completely above player affection), Dove became a misantrope (not in the "anyone who can think is an evil dick" way, but "''real humans'' are terrible, virtual simulations are better"-sort of FantasticRacism) and started a group that blew shit up for fun while painting humanity as something even worse.[[/note]] In ''Journals'', they're all targetting Soos. The point is that if they ''were'' obsessed with people that Soos's group ''knew about'' and were convinced that they were being pried away from them, [=RunGif=] could have very well ended up like it was here.
** This really shows off the worst in the professors, and the worst in [=.GIFfany=]. They lighten up and eventually become the more sympathetic portrayals as they were in [=RunGif=] and most of them are played for laughs, but until then, ''holy shit''. To wit:
*** Burrda is completely silent, spending the beginning of her short appearance with her face completely blackened aside from a simple ASCII smiley blinking and glowing from it -- the implication being that she completely lost her mind.
*** Of course, Burnda is right by her side, talking about how the two of them "share a link" and implies that she outright wants to assimilate herself, Burrda, and Soos together.
*** Sandy becomes a [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Gamzee]] expy of sorts. In RG, Sober-Sandy was a wannabe philosopher and a very intellegent geologist. Here, as the effects of her tea wear off, she becomes increasingly deranged, talking about the "Great Starry Love Goddess in the Skies" and talking about performing sacrifices and rituals to get Soos to fall for her.
*** Kathody plans on making Soos's own personal life "terrifying" until he finally goes into her arms, and still tries to send JumpScare[=s=] into his life so that he can always be leaping into her arms.
*** Shannon has, for all intents and purposes, ''became addicted to her own mirrors''. She spouts nonsense of the fantasies she sees in them, and yes, [[spoiler:she too has a Glitch state.]]
*** Rose establishes the setting -- she interrupts [=.GIFfany=]'s "Special Attack" and traps the foursome in vines. Slowly drawing in closer, talking about how they are not allowed to fight back at all. The group's only saved by the other professors attacking ''her''.
*** Wendy M (or rather, W, as the copies here have the last name Watch -- as in, Mr. Game and Watch -- instead of [[WesternAnimation/{{Archer}} Miyazumi]]) re-creates both that stalker Bobby Hill once had during "Talking Shop" and the far more insane Trip Larson from "Pigmilation."
*** Bubbles mentions trying to literally wash his brain to make him want to play with her.
*** Sonia's comments are tamer than the others, but she attempts to lure Soos in siren-style. In a foggy swamp.
*** Searah also isn't that bad threat-wise, but she can jump out of practically ''any'' water. Including sink water.
*** Cardia seems to be just as dilusional as she was at the beginning of "Brains, Heart, and Guts of the Group," though now she talks about ''butchering'' anyone who gets in the way of her and Soos.
*** Dian is something of a StepfordSmiler: she seems to be as laid-back and neutral towards everything as her ''Gifocalypse'' counterpart, but in reality has a whole underground factory where she tries to brew potions that force Soos into loving her. (Between this and Bubbles, you can tell that Fan '''really''' doesn't like love potions in any way.)
*** Leona would have been one of the tamer ones if not for the extremely long StalkerShrine hallway with artwork she made of Soos -- paintings of him filling up the walls and ceilings, busts all lining the sides, and the floor is a carpet bearing some sort of suit card-like depiction of him.
*** [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Dove... doesn't change much, if at all.]] Despite being a bundle of unprovoked hostility in [=RunGif=], she's actually one of the ''tamest'' professors in ''Journals''. Which is an uncanny thought for a number of completely different reasons -- the woman who [[spoiler:''blew up Gravity Falls'']] keeping her personalty yet being the ''least'' fucked up of the fourteen speaks volumes about the rest of them.
*** Lastly, there's a brand new addition: Professor Eve. Take the unprovoked hostility of Dove or [=.GIFfany=], add a backstory of [[spoiler:being "banished" to a technicolor void ]]

* '''Animatronic Rush:''' (Uses 1000 power)
* '''Rift Steal:''' (Uses 1500 power) [=.GIFfany=] reveals that she has snuck into the Mystery Shack to steal the rift [[gravityfalls.wikia.com/wiki/Interdimensional_rift (this thing)]]. She attempts to merge it with herself, but drops and breaks the globe containing it, causing an X-shaped portal to appear in the stage. Every one of her regular assists (including the animatronics for some reason) can come out of this rift at intervals, as well as various other assists:
** '''Gnome:''' Specifically, Jeff. He stands in place for about a second before running off, gathering other gnomes to form the "giant gnome" combination. Rushes across the screen, dealing mild, but unblockable damage. Attacking Jeff cancels the attack.
** '''Gobblewonker (Real):''' A sprite alteration of Dipper's Gobblewonker (Robot) assist.
** '''Manotaur:''' Hits the opponent with a short range Completely Not Falcon Punch.
** '''Time Baby:''' Rare. Freezes the stage, barring [=.GIFfany=], for three seconds. It is worth noting that this also works on her allies.
** '''Nzyvo Northwest:''' Rare. Strongly resembles Mabel, with the only differences being black hair and a nose that looks more like Pacifica's. She's Pacifica, Dipper, and Mabel's successfully engineered long-lost quadruplet sister and a parody of uncreative original characters.
** '''Bill Cipher:''' Rare. The stage is tinted red. He proceeds to summon a much larger rift, which leads to a stage-filling hazard as his Henchmaniacs drop into the arena. All of them can be dodged, but doing so is very difficult.
** '''[[Film/KungFury Arcade Machine:]]''' A living arcade machine robot with a constant angry face and middle finger-guns. Will fire three exploding lasers before Kung Fury himself rides in on a keyboard and knocks him offscreen.
** '''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Ezekiel:]]''' A poorly-drawn sprite of Ezekiel appears on the stage. Deals a very weak arrow attack. Will be knocked off the stage if attacked.
** '''''naruto the guy with the ninja''-Naruto:''' Rare. Does nothing. He attempts to leap out of the rift, but gets caught and yanked back in by Kyu Sugardust of ''[=HuniePop=]'' fame. This is a reference to Fan's intentionally poorly written ''naruto the guy with the ninja'', where Naruto is an antagonistic force and Kyu ultimately leads to his downfal.
** '''[[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill Hank]] and [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Rip:]]''' Rare. Based on ''Sweet Jade and Hella John'', an intentionally poorly written comic-turned-text fic where Hank Hill and Rip Van Winkle are archenemies, among other things. Both of them have no effect on the fight, and the latter teleports away using ''Ed, Edd n Eddy: The Mis-Edventues''.
* '''run:gifocalypse:''' (Uses 1500 power) [=.GIFfany=] summons a Wire (matching the hair color of that palette), which specifically summons random professor copies from Great Pikmin Fan's "AU" ''run:gifocalypse'', about multiple copies of her aiming to take over the world. Regardless of [=.GIFfany=]'s palette (except the digital one, where they are all black and white as she is), their hair color remains the game. Like Rift Steal, only one copy can be out at a time, the copies are summoned at intervals when one is de-summoned, and the Wire remains out for the rest of the round. [=.GIFfany=] '''can''' summon her regular assists and '''can''' stack this move with Rift Steal (for exceptionally long fights).
** '''Burrda:''' A copy with '''white''' hair. Her attack is similar to that of Lyn as an Assist Trophy in ''Super Smash Bros.'', where she stays in place for a moment before zipping to the enemy's location with a powerful slash. She is coded to deal a greater amount of damage if Cheaper Edd is an opponent, supposedly representing that the attack can cut through both his defense and his greater health amount, however it deals near-lethal levels of damage if he's allied with another character of "average" health and defense. Also freezes the opponent if hit.
** '''Burnda:''' A copy with '''red''' hair.
** '''Sandy:''' A copy with '''orange''' hair.
** '''Kathody:''' A copy with '''yellow''' hair.
** '''Shannon:''' A copy with '''chartreuse''' hair.
** '''Rose:''' A copy with '''green''' hair. She sends a possessing stream of electricity into her own leaf outfit, then grows an entire tree out of it, which hits in a straight line in front of itself. While Rose remains with the tree growing out of her outfit a while after, this does no damage outside of the initial sprouting.
** '''Wendy:''' A copy with '''spring green''' hair.
** '''Bubbles:''' A copy with '''cyan''' hair.
** '''Sonia:''' A copy with '''azure''' hair.
** '''Searah:''' A copy with '''blue''' hair.
** '''Cardia:''' A copy with '''violet''' hair.
** '''Dian:''' A copy with '''magenta''' hair. Harmless unless attacked, then sends a large cloud of poison sliding across the screen. She also disappears in this poison cloud.
** '''Leona:''' A copy with '''rose''' hair.
** '''Dove:''' A copy with '''black''' hair. Tints the stage purple (if, by some extremely rare chance, she and Bill are out on the stage at the same time, Bill's red tint takes precedence)

!! Trivia

* Like every other character by Great Pikmin Fan, [=.GIFfany=] has an anti-cheap mode against Naruto-kun, Sasuke-kun, Super Mario 64,
* All of [=.GIFfany=]'s regular supernatural assists (bar the animatronics) are monsters that were recruited by Nzyvo in Fan's intentionally poorly written ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage''. Nzyvo herself makes a brief cameo as a ''very'' rare possible assist in the Rift Steal hyper.

to:

[[folder:Maybe That too, yeah. When she asked "You can talk" I was thinking "Oh ''really'', ''you're'' the one to ask that." Hence, in RG, when Burrda finally says something instead of making electronics display messages, one of the frogs from Domain 8 -- of all people -- asks "You can talk?" And, because everyone thought it was just a route inspired by [=FourthRhyme=]'s Papyrus frog, of course they're like "Well look at who's asking the question."

* In "Sassy Cat and Talking Bulldog Corps," she ''finally'' gets a chance to use her "special attack" without anyone knocking her over before she could do anything more than glow. [[spoiler:It's a series of spikes with hearts
on ''MUGEN'', specifically the end that deal a tiny amount of damage on paper, but constantly deal that damage for the time contact was held -- in effect, it copies the "one hit per frame" mechanic used in ''Undertale''. Keep in mind that Kyu ''regularly'' uses these in her battle, and '''her''' "special attack" was a Brimstone laser so large that it splits the entire planet in half.]]

''Journals'': canon's [=.GIFfany=] summons a Wire (matching was the hair color earliest redeemed one, and allies with the Pines and company out of sheer fear. The entire rest of the army are all {{yandere}} for Soos. Fan disagrees, saying that the whole point of that palette), which specifically summons random professor copies from was to parody overly edgy [=AUs=], and that he would find a huge variety in anti-villains while the main antagonist was a canon villain who spent most of the story... ''still'' being unpleasant would be more interesting and more "suitable" to canon.
[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:Alienation Folder]]

AudienceAlienatingPremise

* A number of
Great Pikmin Fan's "AU" works, while usually not squicky or controversial, fall under this usually by simply being ''weird'' or suffering heavily through ContinuityLockOut.
** ''The Hill King'' takes ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' and aims to go for a NarmCharm-filled CrackFic ride full of magic powers, the occasional canon {{Jerkass}} of the Week being made into some sort of magic enemies that ''also'' invoke MundaneMadeAwesome, but it also has continuity and a bit of a story arc. Fans of ''King of the Hill'' in general likely would not want to see their show, which made a special point of being "mundane," turned into something of a WidgetSeries-like romp. People who ''do'' like those sort of things tend to avoid ''King of the Hill'' fan fiction, again due to the show's mundane element. In effect, most people would only gravitate towards it if they've already read something else by Fan, especially if they want to know where the hell his ''King of the Hill'' RunningGag-related jokes come from.
** ''FanFic/RunGifocalypse'' has more of an Audience Alienating Execution. On paper, a ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' fanwork where [=.GIFfany=] is ascended as the main antagonist and commands an army of her copies to try to take Soos back by force isn't that bad on its own. However, its two biggest alienators (though they're heavily tied together to the point where they might as well count as the same thing) are the OC-centric-ness of the fic and how much of the canonical cast is absent until the last few chapters. In the case of the latter, the author warns readers in advance that several popular characters -- including Pacifica and even BigBad Bill Cipher -- will not be in for most of the story, with Dipper, Mabel, Soos, Wendy, Stan, [[spoiler:Ford]], and [=.GIFfany=] being the only canon characters with constant focus. All of [=.GIFfany=]'s copies except the one ''from'' canon are, for all intents and purposes, original characters that happened to share a backstory and some elements with [=.GIFfany=], and are related to her. They're not the ''main'' stars of the story and more like the QuirkyMinibossSquad, and they don't really have more than one chapter of main focus then have all screentime shoved off to them appearing at the end of a chapter, ''and'' they all ''do'' end up getting foiled in some way or another by the Pines twins and company. None of this changes the fact that there are more original characters than there are canonical characters that make an appearance until chapter 12 rolls by.
** ''Bl:oo<dswap: Guess Who's Getting a Spinoff?'' Take the issues of
''run:gifocalypse'', about multiple copies of her aiming to take over the world. Regardless of [=.GIFfany=]'s palette (except the digital one, where they are all black and white as she is), their hair color remains the game. Like Rift Steal, only one copy can be out at a time, the copies are summoned at intervals when one is de-summoned, and the Wire remains out for the rest of the round. replace [=.GIFfany=] '''can''' summon her regular assists and '''can''' stack this move with Rift Steal (for exceptionally long fights).
** '''Burrda:''' A copy with '''white''' hair. Her attack is similar to that of Lyn as an Assist Trophy in ''Super Smash Bros.'', where she stays in place
[[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Nepeta]] (and Bill and Pacifica with, for a moment before zipping to the enemy's location with a powerful slash. She is coded to deal a greater amount example, Karkat and Kanaya) and add on ''truckloads'' of damage if Cheaper Edd is an opponent, supposedly representing DarknessInducedAudienceApathy, and you've got ''Bl:oo<dswap''. The idea that the attack can cut original trolls are all replaced by a Nepeta with the same blood color sounds more suited for a short joke story. It's not -- from the get go, the whole thing aims to be a surrealistic MindScrew mystery where every chapter until the end is planned to answer some questions, but raise more. Most of the canon trolls have been shoved off to just be Dreambubble fodder due to the way the fic works[[labelnote:Spoilers]]This is a "proper-AU session" ('''not''' a doomed timeline, as Fan stresses) where the all-Nepeta session is actually the result of the trolls needing to Scratch more than twice -- a second Scratch, due to Meulin and her ancestor ending up "contaminating" the Cardinal Movement and being mixed in with it during the Scratch, created an all-Meulin session. They ended up Scratching, creating an all-Nepeta session[[/labelnote]], Roxy is made into a paranoid nutcase thanks to [[spoiler:Lime Nepeta]] having haunted her since she was a child, and AnyoneCanDie when it comes to the humans is in full effect. People who like a mystery and darkness would be put off by the silly-sounding concept of there being twelve Nepetas trying to play Sgrub together. Those that like Nepeta and want to see her dealing with multiple bloodswaps of herself would be put off by the bleakness and complexity of it all. There is a happy ending, but it takes until a lot of suffering before getting there.
** ''Steven Helps out the Ordinary Humans'' is pretty much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin -- episodes of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' centered around the issues with the human cast of Beach City and Steven helping them with little to no magic involvement or Gem-related businesses have been a... divisive point in the series. This fic paints such a subject as its selling point. Even though the title tries to trick the readers
through both his defense ExactWords into thinking it's effectively one long "Shirt Club" or "Sadie's Song" when in reality it's Fan's standard fare adventure romps, this does more harm than good -- people who ''did'' want to just see a fic centered around the human cast without much magic would be turned off by the complicated CrackFic plotline, and his those who wanted to see them Take Levels in Badass like Connie did and go on their own adventures would have enjoyed it much more if A: the beginning and ''title'' did not dissuade them before and B: ''more Gems becides Steven got involved with their missions too''.[[note]]Funny enough, ''Helps'' was the retooling of something that Fan thought nobody would really like because of its greater health amount, however CrackFic nature. Given the name of ''...I Thought Those Were the Ingredients'', this [[/note]]
** He tries to make
it deals near-lethal levels of damage if he's allied with another character of "average" health an anual thing to have a CrackFic crossover. However, unlike well-known crack crossovers, he does ''not'' settle for taking two highly popular series at the time and defense. Also freezes crossing them together off of FriendlyFandoms[=/=]FandomRivalry[=/=]CounterpartComparison[=/=]etc. Usually ''(at least)'' one of the opponent if hit.

* Like every other
bad so much as him trying to write a DeconstructiveParody of it. To those that ''don't'' like fics which overpowered a certain character by Great Pikmin Fan, [=.GIFfany=] (usually the main one) and give them a number of two-dimensional love interests, it comes off as uncreative PreachingToTheChoir. As a ''SBIG'' installment, it also has an anti-cheap mode the general point against Naruto-kun, Sasuke-kun, Super Mario 64,
* All of [=.GIFfany=]'s regular supernatural assists (bar the animatronics) are monsters that were recruited by Nzyvo in
it for Fan's intentionally poorly written ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage''. Nzyvo herself sloppy style, which does ''not'' litter it with spelling mistakes, but Fan ''will'' [[ThrowItIn keep any genuine spelling mistakes he makes unless it makes the story too confusing to read.]]
** ''Paper John: Sticker Star''. It's bad enough that ''Homestuck''[='=]s popularity was in something of
a brief cameo as decline (or at least its fandom activity) even before it ended, but crossing it with a ''very'' rare possible assist in [[VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar divisive game]] with a wide hatebase just to poke fun at crossovers is practically a giant "do not read" sign right there. Even though the Rift Steal hyper.
plot pulls a complete 180 and goes off on an original and bizarre direction, the combination of following the story of ''Sticker Star'' a little ''too'' faithfully for the first few chapters, combined with Karkat (taking the role of Kersti) being [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] to intentionally unlikeable levels put a lot of readers off.

* Original(/as [=NeedsMoreDeepWater=]):
** This is why ''Attacking the HRT'' was subjected to MagnumOpusDissonance. ''THE BEST FAMILY'' ended up working out because it was a sort-of compromise between Water's "usual subject matter" (large, complicated, continuity-filled plotlines) and a standard and more relatable sitcom romp. Plus, the concept of five ''vastly'' different households, all fantasy-like to varrying degrees, living right next to one-another on the same block worked out perfectly fine. ''HRT'', on the other hand, tried to be too many things at once. It was a very complicated, character-focused story that explored various fantasy worlds and repeatedly discussed the topic of making a utopia, with most of the major characters having their own opinions on how to do that and making unique systems for it. Basically like a LighterAndSofter ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'', minus the [[spoiler:Villain Protagonist]]. The large defining flaw is that all of the cast barring the TokenHuman (and even then, s/he still goes around wearing little) is a RidiculouslyHumanRobot (''sort of'')... that goes around nearly naked, and the exceptionally powerful leaders of the "domains" all outright have nothing but their respective "elements" covering their crotches -- breasts (unless you pick the all-male option) and butts are barred. People who wanted a character development-focused game with unique world settings were put off by the sheer nudity. Anyone expecting this to be a flat-out fanservicefest would be disappointed -- the characters are never really sexualized, the nudity is treated as a completely casual thing, and there's so much going on and so many characters to account for that you practically have to be paying attention to the plot. You could censor nipples or add clothing, but the damage to newcomers had been done. Much to Water's chagrin (the latter could be a huge pet peeve of his on a bad day and something he even considers an {{Acceptable Target|s}} on a good day), this loses points because the characters are ''[[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Shameless]]'' Fanservice Girls (or Guys, again depending on the options) rather than ''[[ReluctantFanserviceGirl Reluctant]]'' -- the latter tends to be far more popular when it comes to fanservice tropes.

* '''A DEAL'S A DEAL:''' (Uses no power; drains 1/2 of his remaining life) Dipper "suddenly gets amnesia of the events of 'Sock Opera'" (Fan's words) and allows Bill to possess him to give him an upper edge of the battle. From there, "Bipper" more-or-less acts as a weaker version of the Bill boss character. This move can still be used even if Bill is an opponent. This is similar to Homer Simpson's "BEER RIOT MODE."

* '''Raise the Dead:''' (Uses 1000 power) Dipper reads off a chant to raise zombies. The ground splits, and several waves of the undead rush across the stage.

[[folder:Alienation Folder]]

AudienceAlienatingPremise

* A number of Great Pikmin Fan's works, while usually not squicky or controversial, fall under this usually by simply being ''weird'' or suffering heavily through ContinuityLockOut.
** ''The Hill King'' takes ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' and aims to go for a NarmCharm-filled CrackFic ride full of magic powers, the occasional canon {{Jerkass}} of the Week being made into some sort of magic enemies that ''also'' invoke MundaneMadeAwesome, but it also has continuity and a bit of a story arc. Fans of ''King of the Hill'' in general likely would not want to see their show, which made a special point of being "mundane," turned into something of a WidgetSeries-like romp. People who ''do'' like those sort of things tend to avoid ''King of the Hill'' fan fiction, again due to the show's mundane element. In effect, most people would only gravitate towards it if they've already read something else by Fan, especially if they want to know where the hell his ''King of the Hill'' RunningGag-related jokes come from.
** ''FanFic/RunGifocalypse'' has more of an Audience Alienating Execution. On paper, a ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' fanwork where [=.GIFfany=] is ascended as the main antagonist and commands an army of her copies to try to take Soos back by force isn't that bad on its own. However, its two biggest alienators (though they're heavily tied together to the point where they might as well count as the same thing) are the OC-centric-ness of the fic and how much of the canonical cast is absent until the last few chapters. In the case of the latter, the author warns readers in advance that several popular characters -- including Pacifica and even BigBad Bill Cipher -- will not be in for most of the story, with Dipper, Mabel, Soos, Wendy, Stan, [[spoiler:Ford]], and [=.GIFfany=] being the only canon characters with constant focus. All of [=.GIFfany=]'s copies except the one ''from'' canon are, for all intents and purposes, original characters that happened to share a backstory and some elements with [=.GIFfany=], and are related to her. They're not the ''main'' stars of the story and more like the QuirkyMinibossSquad, and they don't really have more than one chapter of main focus then have all screentime shoved off to them appearing at the end of a chapter, ''and'' they all ''do'' end up getting foiled in some way or another by the Pines twins and company. None of this changes the fact that there are more original characters than there are canonical characters that make an appearance until chapter 12 rolls by.
** ''Bl:oo<dswap: Guess Who's Getting a Spinoff?'' Take the issues of ''run:gifocalypse'', replace [=.GIFfany=] with [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Nepeta]] (and Bill and Pacifica with, for example, Karkat and Kanaya) and add on ''truckloads'' of DarknessInducedAudienceApathy, and you've got ''Bl:oo<dswap''. The idea that the original trolls are all replaced by a Nepeta with the same blood color sounds more suited for a short joke story. It's not -- from the get go, the whole thing aims to be a surrealistic MindScrew mystery where every chapter until the end is planned to answer some questions, but raise more. Most of the canon trolls have been shoved off to just be Dreambubble fodder due to the way the fic works[[labelnote:Spoilers]]This is a "proper-AU session" ('''not''' a doomed timeline, as Fan stresses) where the all-Nepeta session is actually the result of the trolls needing to Scratch more than twice -- a second Scratch, due to Meulin and her ancestor ending up "contaminating" the Cardinal Movement and being mixed in with it during the Scratch, created an all-Meulin session. They ended up Scratching, creating an all-Nepeta session[[/labelnote]], Roxy is made into a paranoid nutcase thanks to [[spoiler:Lime Nepeta]] having haunted her since she was a child, and AnyoneCanDie when it comes to the humans is in full effect. People who like a mystery and darkness would be put off by the silly-sounding concept of there being twelve Nepetas trying to play Sgrub together. Those that like Nepeta and want to see her dealing with multiple bloodswaps of herself would be put off by the bleakness and complexity of it all. There is a happy ending, but it takes until a lot of suffering before getting there.
** ''Steven Helps out the Ordinary Humans'' is pretty much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin -- episodes of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''
** He tries to make it an anual thing to have a CrackFic crossover. However, unlike well-known crack crossovers, he does ''not'' settle for taking two highly popular series at the time and crossing them together off of FriendlyFandoms[=/=]FandomRivalry[=/=]CounterpartComparison[=/=]etc. Usually ''(at least)'' one of the things isn't very popular in of itself. This has included, but is not limited to, ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' and his own ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' badfic; ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' and ''WesternAnimation/PerfectHairForever'' (this one eventually went on to have more sequel-related fics to its name -- a huge honor by Fan's standards, as he tends to not like giving his stories sequels); ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/BrandyAndMrWhiskers'' (though this one was based on an idea he had as a kid)
** ''naruto the guy with the ninja'' is unique among his StylisticSuck works in that it's actually a specific parody of a fan fic genre (the rest of the ''SBIG'' installments simply go from goofing off with vague ties to canon to a re-imagining of a plotline of sorts). In this case, "overpowered harem" fan fiction.

To those that ''don't'' like fics which overpowered a certain character (usually the main one) and give them a number of two-dimensional love interests, it comes off as uncreative PreachingToTheChoir.

!! FUCKING RG REFERENCE TALLY

* ''OFF'': Hold on to your seats, this is a long one. Domain 9 is loosely based on Zone 1. The PNG(/"Domain 15") is loosely based on Zone 2. Domain 11 is strongly based on Zone 3. The Memory Banks portion is based on the Room. Cardia is similar to Japhet: Both went insane because of something the people they're looking after have done, both possess an animal that's dear to one of the main characters. (Mabel's pet peg; Judge's brother.) Shannon is like Enoch, both of them can change size, both are really friggin hard to fight, both seem like hopeless battles at first then pull a jump scare and have the "real" battle after being "weakened." Dove is like Dedan; foul-mouthed, associated with time, a kind of "body made of steel," asshole boss to followers. The "main area" of Domain 15 is a historical place similar to the Great Library of Zone 2, and in fact a library makes up a good portion of the Romance Museum. The Memory Banks has six chapters in descending order, from 5 to 0, and is a giant mind fuck. Domain 11 is manufacturing a drug, but it's basically called and affiliated with something generally not considered a drug in real life. It has horrible withdrawl effects. Domain 11 is also made of various sections traveled by monorail. The diagram showing how the mirrors work depicts ordinary humans in a manner resembling Elsen, with white coloring and a square head, while the diagrams in other domains (IE not the one with the strongest ''OFF'' inspiration) use [=.GIFfany=]'s "standard" blue and red stick figures. Domain 9 manufactures four different components of poison, when the group is told about each component, the expositor tells them that they are each the "first of four" and an important component, similar to the elements of ''OFF''. One of those components is smoke, like how ''OFF'' has smoke as an element. The smoke area is ran by a copy who named herself Daminna, a play on "Damien," the part of Zone 1 with the smoke mines. The final runner in Domain 9 calls herself Alma, directly named after the fifth and final section of Zone 1.
* ''King of the Hill'': Professor Wendy and her followers love the show. It's directly mentioned by-name and said copies run a fanclub of it in Domain 10. I mean, I'm not really sure if it counts as ''references'', but... the sheer blatancy of it makes me feel like placing it above everything except ''OFF'', because with ''OFF'' it's so frequent you might as well say it's a knockoff.
* ''The Wonderful 101'': Dove's chapter takes a huge page from Operation 008 in ''101''. The final battle takes a huge page from Operation 009-C. Wonder-Pink is one of [=.GIFfany=]'s "cosplays" just before said final battle.
* ''Perfect Hair Forever'': The twins heavily take their design from Brenda, and in fact they are two of the only copies (well, aside from Kathody, but Kathody's named after/based on an OC to begin with, so...) to be inspired from the character they were named after. Burrda actually acts more like her: Silent, kind of just does what someone else says (Uncle Grandfather/Burnda), uses a sword, apparently really easy to convince to go out and fight. Burnda's just her sort-of opposite. Heck, their fusion is named Blenda, just one letter off.
* ''The Legend of Zelda'': A big thing is in the sky and going to "activate" in three days, with a big "final warning" on midnight of the third day (the Moon in ''Majora's Mask''). Technically Sandy's "PUNISH THEM! PUNISH THEM!" thing is a self-nod to ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals'', which is what the Pikmin threaten to do with Jake (laser his groin off, but the Rainbow Crew step in and save him just in time),
* ''Super Mario'': Hijacker Peachaulinsalinaisy's name is a blatant portmanteu of Peach, Pauline, Rosalina, and Daisy. She runs an area similar to the Duel of 100 from ''Super Paper Mario''. Speaking of said game, immediately after her the gang faces Hijacker Alma, who's ability is being able to "flip" much like the dimension-flipping in said game. Towards the end the fic takes the piss on the later ''New''-styled things such as the greater limitation on Toad designs and the repeated re-use of the Koopalings, etc, but these are more on the TakeThat scale.
* ''Undertale'': Hato is inspired by Burgerpants in that they're both stuck at fast food jobs that they hate (though Hato is an asshole and kind of fucking insane). Humans are associated with upright hearts, the non-human "monsters" of note (the copies) are associated with inverted hearts, though the latter comes in several different colors. [=.GIFfany=]'s Main Possession and that black void sequence leading up to it are partly inspired by the Neutral Run final boss. (Partly inspired by some of the work of her canonical designer, Paul Robertson. Also, partly inspired by the final boss of ''Wonderful 101'', see above.) The bulk of when ''Undertale'' comes up, if anything, is more of a mock of the game rather than a complete inspiration. Mainly a lot about Dove.
* ''[=HuniePop=], AKA That No-No Game Markiplier Played'': This was unintentional until like minutes ''after'' I actually typed it down, but it's a retroactive reference: Leona's followers prank [=.GIFfany=] by vandalizing one of her skirts and making it a deep red. Which would make it resemble '''T'''iffany's skirt/uniform in general. By an amazing (in-universe) coincidence Kyu is one of [=.GIFfany=]'s "outfits" during her rapid black void flash before the final battle. Dove is called a giga-bitch... like with the phrase "mega-bitch" used to describe Audrey.
* ''Homestuck'': Rose, Dian, and Dove got their names taken from... Rose, Dirk, and Dave respectively, with the latter two being sort-of gender bent names ("Dian" being a weird mispelling of "Diane" just to fit the four-letter theme). However, the names are all they have in common. Ron Ejjert is clearly based on John Egbert but this is by no means a respectful homage. Although Dove's online handle is tableturnGigahead -- similar to Dave's turntechGodhead.
* ''Ed, Edd n Eddy'': Searah is named after Sarah, but that's where the similarities end. Like with Rose, Dave, Dirk, Kathy, and Wendy, the names are just nods to the "overly complex family tree" and were actually thought up back before I really planned to give the professors that much depth. In other words, a lot of them were kind of throwaway names for what was going to be one-off monsters. Anyway, Brenda is an exception because Burrda is more heavily based on her. See above. (Sandy, Cardia, Bubbles, Leona, Sonia, and Shannon are not particularly named after anything, and are just puns related to their elements[[note]]Sandy = Sand = Dirt/Earth. Bubbles = Soap makes a lot of that shit. '''Leona'''rdo Da Vinci. Sonia... one letter off from "Sonic." Shannon, probably the only one that isn't completely obvious: Shine-on[[/note]].)
* Misc (Too short to really give its own thing): Kathody's domain is a large love-letter to ''Spooky's Jumpscare Mansion'', considering that it has cheap cardboard cutouts before moving on to more real horrors. The first of the 100 duelers ("Wire Untangler") has a design heavily based on Paimon from ''Magi: Labyrinth of Magic''. The second ("Keyboard to One's Heart") is based on "Sunglasses" from the ''Creamsicle''/''Normal Girls/Other Girls'' meme. Victoria and Kimberly, two of the prior players (Kathody's and Shannon's, respectively), were named after the female nude [=NPCs=] in ''Epic Battle Fantasy'' (from the fourth and third game, respecitvely).
* ''Yandere Simulator'': A minor character (as in, all she really does is call Professor Sandy an idiot) shares the name and (sort of) hair color of a minor student in ''Yandere''.

As you can see, just because it's about a yandere doesn't mean I'm going to jump in and reference ''Yandere Simulator'' as much as I can. Especially as... well... there actually isn't much to reference on its own yet, especially because the game isn't finished. I mean, what could you reference? The fun bonus modes? Those are already references to something else. The whole "yandere killing things to go after obsession?" That's, judging from how many ill-fitting, failed-to-kill, one-off examples I've read in the yandere trope lists, not too common but not something specific to the game. School girls? Multicolored hair? Panty shots? Clubs? That's so vague it could be to anything.

This has included, but is not limited to, ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' and his own ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' badfic; ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' and ''WesternAnimation/PerfectHairForever'' (this one eventually went on to have more sequel-related fics to its name -- a huge honor by Fan's standards, as he tends to not like giving his stories sequels); ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/BrandyAndMrWhiskers'' (though this one was based on an idea he had as a kid)
** ''naruto the guy with the ninja'' is unique among his StylisticSuck works in that it's actually a specific parody of a fan fic genre (the rest of the ''SBIG'' installments simply go from goofing off with vague ties to canon to a re-imagining of a plotline of sorts). In this case, "overpowered harem" fan fiction. For people that like these, the fic comes off as ''extremely'' insulting -- even Fan himself admits that it was never supposed to be him flat-out saying that harem fics are bad so much as him trying to write a DeconstructiveParody of it. To those that ''don't'' like fics which overpowered a certain
character they were named after. Burrda actually acts more like her: Silent, kind of just does what someone else says (Uncle Grandfather/Burnda), uses a sword, apparently really easy to convince to go out (usually the main one) and fight. Burnda's just her sort-of opposite. Heck, their fusion is named Blenda, just one letter off.
* ''The Legend
give them a number of Zelda'': A big thing is in two-dimensional love interests, it comes off as uncreative PreachingToTheChoir. As a ''SBIG'' installment, it also has the sky and going to "activate" in three days, with a big "final warning" on midnight of the third day (the Moon in ''Majora's Mask''). Technically Sandy's "PUNISH THEM! PUNISH THEM!" thing is a self-nod to ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals'', general point against it for Fan's intentionally sloppy style, which is what the Pikmin threaten to do does ''not'' litter it with Jake (laser his groin off, spelling mistakes, but Fan ''will'' [[ThrowItIn keep any genuine spelling mistakes he makes unless it makes the Rainbow Crew step in story too confusing to read.]]

* In "Sassy Cat
and save him just in time),
* ''Super Mario'': Hijacker Peachaulinsalinaisy's name is
Talking Bulldog Corps," she ''finally'' gets a blatant portmanteu of Peach, Pauline, Rosalina, and Daisy. She runs an area similar chance to the Duel of 100 from ''Super Paper Mario''. Speaking of said game, immediately after use her the gang faces Hijacker Alma, who's ability is being able to "flip" much like the dimension-flipping in said game. Towards "special attack" without anyone knocking her over before she could do anything more than glow. [[spoiler:It's a series of spikes with hearts on the end that deal a tiny amount of damage on paper, but constantly deal that damage for the fic takes time contact was held -- in effect, it copies the piss on the later ''New''-styled things such as the greater limitation on Toad designs and the repeated re-use of the Koopalings, etc, but "one hit per frame" mechanic used in ''Undertale''. Keep in mind that Kyu ''regularly'' uses these are more on the TakeThat scale.
* ''Undertale'': Hato is inspired by Burgerpants
in her battle, and '''her''' "special attack" was a Brimstone laser so large that it splits the entire planet in half.]]

I've thought of something like this (''Binding of Isaac'' spoilers?):
* She'll judge Soos around chapter 7 or so of ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage'' (past the halfway mark cliffhanger, but not in the planned BizarroEpisode of chapter 8 or when
they're both stuck at fast food jobs that they hate (though Hato is an asshole and already in space). He's the "good (enough)" example when it comes to "harem fics" -- she'll offer a beam of light-based transportation system to a cathedral.
* She'll try to judge Harold in a quick cameo near the end of ''Total Drama World Tour Rewrite'', but end up
kind of fucking insane). Humans are associated confused at the fic's story and eventually decide that maybe he's not worth judging, especially as it seems like the "harem plotline" is crumbling apart.
* She'll judge Naruto at the end of ''naruto the guy
with upright hearts, the non-human "monsters" of note (the copies) are associated with inverted hearts, though the latter comes in several different colors. [=.GIFfany=]'s Main Possession ninja''. As Naruto here is a mass-brainwasher, she'll immediately find him guilty and that black void sequence spawn a trap door right below him leading up him to it are partly inspired by the Neutral Run final boss. (Partly inspired by some of the work of a black cave
* She doesn't judge Carl in ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' because neither
her canonical designer, Paul Robertson. Also, partly inspired by the final boss of ''Wonderful 101'', see above.) The bulk of when game nor ''Undertale'' comes up, if anything, is more of a mock of existed back when HUC was written. Same reason for the game rather than a complete inspiration. Mainly a lot about Dove.
* ''[=HuniePop=], AKA That No-No Game Markiplier Played'': This was unintentional until like minutes ''after'' I actually typed it down, but it's a retroactive reference: Leona's followers prank [=.GIFfany=] by vandalizing one
Rainbow Crew, on top of her skirts and making it a deep red. Which would make it resemble '''T'''iffany's skirt/uniform in general. By an amazing (in-universe) coincidence Kyu is one of [=.GIFfany=]'s "outfits" during her rapid black void flash before the final battle. Dove is called a giga-bitch... like with the phrase "mega-bitch" used to describe Audrey.
* ''Homestuck'': Rose, Dian, and Dove got their names taken from... Rose, Dirk, and Dave respectively, with the latter two being sort-of gender bent names ("Dian"
them mutally being a weird mispelling giant mess.

It's different Kyus in all stories, think
of "Diane" just to fit it like how the four-letter theme). However, the names are all they have Ezekiel in common. Ron Ejjert TDWTR is clearly based on John Egbert but this is by no means a respectful homage. Although Dove's online handle is tableturnGigahead -- similar to Dave's turntechGodhead.
* ''Ed, Edd n Eddy'': Searah is named after Sarah, but that's where the similarities end. Like with Rose, Dave, Dirk, Kathy, and Wendy, the names are just nods to the "overly complex family tree" and were actually thought up back before I really planned to give the professors that much depth. In other words, a lot of them were kind of throwaway names for what was going to be one-off monsters. Anyway, Brenda is an exception because Burrda is more heavily based on her. See above. (Sandy, Cardia, Bubbles, Leona, Sonia, and Shannon are not particularly named after anything, and are just puns related to their elements[[note]]Sandy = Sand = Dirt/Earth. Bubbles = Soap makes a lot of that shit. '''Leona'''rdo Da Vinci. Sonia... one letter off from "Sonic." Shannon, probably the only one that isn't completely obvious: Shine-on[[/note]].)
* Misc (Too short to really give its own thing): Kathody's domain is a large love-letter to ''Spooky's Jumpscare Mansion'', considering that it has cheap cardboard cutouts before moving on to more real horrors. The first of the 100 duelers ("Wire Untangler") has a design heavily based on Paimon from ''Magi: Labyrinth of Magic''. The second ("Keyboard to One's Heart") is based on "Sunglasses"
different from the ''Creamsicle''/''Normal Girls/Other Girls'' meme. Victoria and Kimberly, two of Ezekiel in TZP or the prior players (Kathody's and Shannon's, respectively), were named after the female nude [=NPCs=] Ezekiel in ''Epic Battle Fantasy'' (from the fourth and third game, respecitvely).
* ''Yandere Simulator'': A minor character (as in, all she really does is call Professor Sandy an idiot) shares the name and (sort of) hair color of a minor student in ''Yandere''.

As you can see, just because it's about a yandere doesn't mean I'm going to jump in and reference ''Yandere Simulator'' as much as I can. Especially as... well... there actually isn't much to reference on its own yet, especially because the game isn't finished. I mean, what could you reference? The fun bonus modes? Those are already references to something else. The whole "yandere killing things to go after obsession?" That's, judging from how many ill-fitting, failed-to-kill, one-off examples I've read in the yandere trope lists, not too common but not something specific to the game. School girls? Multicolored hair? Panty shots? Clubs? That's so vague it could be to anything.

[[folder:Journals]]

'''Be warned:''' This pretty much contains unmarked spoilers for the entirety of ''Gravity Falls''.

''The Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage'' is the fourteenth (as well as the third-to-last) installment of the StylisticSuck ''[[FanFic/SBIGSeries SBIG]]'' series, and the first of two ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''-centric installments. It was initially published on September 13th of 2016.

The plot line itself, this time, is a bit... hard to track. The storyline, taking place between "Little Gift Shop of Horrors" (which is also "canon" here) and "Society of the Blind Eye"[[note]]This was around the timeframe Fan started on the first chapter. He stuck with this time frame[[/note]] moves Dipper and Mabel's birthday to mid-summer, instead of the end of summer, and during the midnight of this day, the journals come to life. All of which leave the Shack's basement lab and head off to a designated "holder." By coincidence, Journal 3's "holder" is Dipper himself. And said journal is... rather impatient, getting Dipper to wake up in the middle of the night to go hunting for "keys." However, the key hunt is soon interrupted by a strange girl who highly resembles Mabel and calls herself Nzyvo, who also has a MiniMecha. Nzyvo is the "holder" of Journal 2, and is after the same keys Dipper is. After foiling her plans, Nzyvo enlists the help of several past canonical [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] to try to go at Dipper and his friends. Along the way, Mabel finds a Mini Mecha of her own -- none other than the [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Lagann]] itself.

From there, the plot of the first half is actually largely about the bizarre shenanigans of the Mystery Shack team going key-hunting while dodging increasingly cartoonish traps set up by Nzyvo. Also, Gideon and Bill are involved as a sort of third party.

!!

* AlternateSelf: Nzyvo appears to be some sort of parallel version of Mabel, complete with her name just being Mabel's in an Atbash cipher. [[spoiler:This is subverted -- she's not a parallel counterpart, but rather a long-lost sibling.]]
* CrackPairing: It's a ''SBIG'' installment. You can't really expect otherwise, it's either this or NoHuggingNoKissing:
** [[spoiler:Stan/Summerween Trickster. Comes the hell out of nowhere in chapter 5. And yes, they do it (offscreen). In that same chapter.]]
** [[spoiler:Chapter 5 also has a Rumble/[=.GIFfany=]/Soos/Melody foursome, which becomes a sort of billions-some when the second invites her other copies in on the fun.]]
* DeathByAdaptation:
** [[spoiler:The Pterodactyl is flat-out killed instead of left underground. Also, it's revealed just before his death that Nzyvo gave him intelligence while adding the cybernetic implants.]]
** [[spoiler:The Shape Shifter also fully perishes, instead of being frozen cryogenically.]]
** Confusingly, [[spoiler:this happens to Ma and Pa despite already being ghosts. Apparently, they're a special type of ghost that can only "undead-live" in a place they haunt. Once that place is destroyed, the ghosts have heart attacks (as with ''Death Note'', heart attacks are a sort of "default death" in the ''Journals''-verse) and... their ghosts end up raising from the ghosts and float up to the sky, where they say they will haunt Dipper and Mabel.]]
* HonorBeforeReason: Nzyvo holds a lot more respect towards [[spoiler:[=.GIFfany=], Rumble, and the Trickster even though ''they outright betray her'' and end up shacking up with people from Gravity Falls while they were supposed to be on important missions, than Gideon for attempting to stay in an alliance with her, but taking off through an escape pod. Apparently trying to save your own life is worse than "taking a direct hit," surviving thanks to super powers, and going to work for the enemy because of disagreeing with that bizarre standard.]]
* HotBlooded: The story slowly transitions into this after starting off as what could best be described as a ''very'' bizarre ''Zelda'' parody. Going by specific characters, Mabel and Nzyvo take the cake with this.
* LargeHam: The Journals, in part thanks to having very little [[NoIndoorVoice indoor voice]]. Nzyvo also gets very hammy during the showdown in chapter 5.
* LongTitle: The story itself and every single chapter title except for the last one, which is simply called "End."
* SuddenlyVoiced: [[spoiler:Turns out that Nzyvo's cybernetic implants on the Ptyrodactyl also gave him sapience and the ability to talk. His only line comes right before he's about to die.]]
* TakeThat:
** Nzyvo's entire character is a mild one at bland PaletteSwap original characters, and a slightly bigger one to [[spoiler:poorly written, unbelievable redemption arcs/Good All Along reveals.]]
** Chapter 3 has one so blatant and contrived that the joke is actually about the blatancy and contrivance. When Mabel has ''finally'' assembled Shackatron Lagann and is fighting the Pterodactmech, she knocks the dinosaur into a number of billboards. First a ''Twilight'' one, then a ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' one, then she specifically avoids smashing his mech into a ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' billboard. When she comes across a ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' one, she scribbles [[SeasonalRot "Seasons 5+"]] on it before the smash. When she comes across a ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' billboard, the ''entire'' team (and the Trickster!) go into a huge debate over which seasons she should scribble on, since they have drastically different opinions on when the show entered a slump and whether or not it recovered.
** The B-plot in chapter 3 deals two: One at {{narm}}y creepypastas in general/''VideoGame/SonicExe'' specifically, and one towards ''WebVideo/GameTheory''. In the former, Nzyvo quickly decides she's fed up with [=.GIFfany=] and fires her (they get back in the end), replacing her with her younger (adopted) brother... "Creepypasta Sonic." C. Sonic ''cannot'' move to any other electronics becides the one his cartridge is inside, all he can do outside the game world is make things bleed or summon near-harmless plushies of himself, and while he ''is'' pretty powerful in his game world good luck finding anyone stupid enough to go inside. He's the only character in the entire story whom ''weakens'' Lazangann (or either --ann mecha, for that matter) when combined, instead of getting a boost from the combination. [[spoiler:As revealed in ''Housestuck: The Split'', he's actually a bit of a Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass. And his ''physical form'', while he has more diffculty getting one than [=.GIFfany=] or Rumble, is actually more powerful than both of them combined.]] As for ''Game Theory'', when the gang encounters him Soos goes out on a far-fetched theory using very minimal evidence and tries to insist on things that have already been jossed. He closes this by stating "But wait dudes, that's just an idea. An idea about storylines!"
--->'''[=.GIFfany=]:''' That blue edge-ball things he knows so much about horror! There is more to horro [sic] than [[BloodyMurder blood]] and [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver black]] and [[NumberOfTheBeast 666!]] People say I do a better job at being scary ''without even trying''! [[RunningGag And for the sake of fuck,]] the number might be 616! [[BreakingTheFourthWall Why is Great Pikmin Fan the only person who knows this?]]
** The first half of chapter 4, before it becomes a WholePlotReference to ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', is about Gideon trying to give Bill a physical form with a "Not clone-ish ray." All this ends up doing when fired at Bill's dream avatar is creating Not Bill, a self-described "handsome bishie..." that's batshit infatuated with Dipper to the point of capturing him. (Interestingly, when fired at ''humanoid'' characters, their Not counterparts are in the form of triangles similar to Bill's default appearance.) Fan makes ''no'' secret that he's not fond of Bill's overwhelming DracoInLeatherPants status and the frequency with which he's paired with Dipper or Mabel. Hell, (Triangle-)Bill is more pissed off when he sees what Not Bill is like than he is at the ''Time Baby''. He also off-handedly mentions this two chapters later, directly mentioning events from canon (that technically did not happen here).

!! ''Journals''

* There's something a little... off about
the entirety of ''Gravity Falls''.

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

* Chapter 5 is
the first of two ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''-centric installments. It was initially published on September 13th of 2016.

And said journal is... rather impatient, getting Dipper to wake up in the middle of the night to go hunting for "keys." However, the key hunt is soon interrupted by a strange girl who highly resembles Mabel and calls herself Nzyvo, who also has a MiniMecha. find Nzyvo is ''staring right into the "holder" of Journal 2, camera, and '''pissed off'''''. And hell, in spite of Nzyvo's ParodySue abilities, there is after ''no'' explanation for how the same keys Dipper is. After foiling hell she was able to know that.

!! ''Spooky's''

* ''SBIG'' is no stranger to TheWorfEffect (often played for laughs), but what takes the cake is that [[spoiler:Spooky and
her plans, Nzyvo enlists the help of several past canonical [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] to try to go at Dipper and his friends. Along the way, Mabel finds mansion are so powerful that not even ''Bill Cipher'' can find a Mini Mecha of her own -- none other than the [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Lagann]] itself.

From there, the plot of the first half is actually largely about the bizarre shenanigans of the Mystery Shack team going key-hunting while dodging increasingly cartoonish traps set up by Nzyvo. Also, Gideon and
way out (at first). And keep in mind that Bill are involved as a sort of third party.

!!

* AlternateSelf: Nzyvo appears to be some sort of parallel version of Mabel, complete with her name just being Mabel's in an Atbash cipher. [[spoiler:This
is subverted -- she's not a parallel counterpart, but rather a long-lost sibling.even physically there.]]
* CrackPairing: It's ** It gets even worse when you consider ''SBIG''-Bill's true identity. [[spoiler:Several alternate versions of Dark Magic (the predominant personality), but also several alternate ''Crconikals''-Nepetas (AKA genius experts, each of whom crafted their own guides to solving the supernatural and they regularly think together in the form of Yggdrasil) and ''Crconikals''-Hank Hills (AKA Sages, realized Sages at that with fairy-related powers that should have some sort of magic counter-balance). Granted, being in a ''SBIG'' installment. You different multiverse might have something to do with it, but even with all those Dark Magic Entities tapping into the knowledge of all the Nepetas and Hanks, Bill ''still'' can't really expect otherwise, it's either this or NoHuggingNoKissing:
** [[spoiler:Stan/Summerween Trickster. Comes the hell
find an actual way out of nowhere in chapter 5. And yes, they do it (offscreen). In that same chapter.so he just plays along with being a specimen.]]
** [[spoiler:Chapter 5 also [[spoiler:Speaking of characters unable to leave the mansion, Spooky and GL Labs are implied to have fallen under this "curse" themselves in this fic's incarnation of the game. Really makes you wonder: Is Spooky running the specimen, or are the specimen running Spooky? Which specimen is responsible for this? (Though the story strongly implies 9.) Or is it the mansion itself, and not a single specimen within?]]
* [=.GIFfany=]'s return. Okay, so a general pattern in Fan's works is that her returns are caused by undoing her disc's destruction in some way. ''run:gifocalypse'' takes place after "The Last Mabelcorn" and Gideon brings her disc back. ''Journals''
has Nzyvo roughly doing the same, except that takes place after "Gift Shop of Horrors." ''Sassy Cat and Talking Bulldog Corps.'' is a Rumble/[=.GIFfany=]/Soos/Melody foursome, sort-of sequel/spinoff to ''Journals'', and bottom line, takes place after. This... [[spoiler:is a '''prequel''' to ''Journals''. [=.GIFfany=] mostly seems to be bound by electronics at least, unlike other "upgrades," but how the fuck is she able to leave the Fight Fighters cabinet without Nzyvo's "revising" skills? Hell, by the time ''Journals'' rolls around, did she still keep the powers she absorbed from Specimen 4?]]
* Specimen 7, rather than being a single "wall" of sorts, is described as being a large flood of undead red bodies that chases after the trio.
* Dipper's [[CurbStompBattle "fight"]] against Spooky. She completely and utterly ends up humiliating him, first by tossing him all over the place, then by [[spoiler:''slicing off his arm'' after he attempts to call a truce. Oh yeah, and said arm injury? It sicks -- the reason why it's not mentioned in ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage'' before chapter 5 is because he got a very convincing prosthetic.]]

!! ''Sassy'' (Related [=SBIGlet=])

* Tad watching the four heroes showering (with his eyes widening when Melody mentions him being there) gets another layer of fucked up when you realize [[spoiler:he was perving on ''his son's romantic partners.'']]

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Professors Kathody, Searah, and Shannon. Sandy is Ambiguously Pale. Cardia is Ambiguously Orange, and teeters the line between "something that could be a natural skin color" and "flat-out techncolor skin." Rose (pink), Bubbles (red), Leona (yellow), Dian (green), Burnda and Burrda (both cyan), Sonia (blue), Wendy (purple), and Dove (gray) are outright [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation technicolor,]] though.

But then... we'll keep returning. And returning. And returning. Eventually us showing up will go from fandom-rejoycing fuel to "Argh just give us new fucking characters already! I mean [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] also toned down on new characters but at least they were doing a shit job at it!" and a sign of being compltely unoriginal, repetetive [sic], and predictable.\\

** WordOfGod was that, while he has nothing against Pacifica or Dipper individually, he easily got sick of the Dipper/Pacifica "oversaturation" and calls the pairing "Kind of a sort of almost-cliche," so he [[spoiler:had the two of them turn out to be related biologically -- Pacifica was adopted by the Northwests, her birth parents were the same as Dipper and Mabel's. This is actually an important plot point, as she's Nzyvo's twin sister and the person Nzyvo spent the first half of the fan fic looking for.]] To rub salt into the wound, [[spoiler:''Spooky's Jump Scare M-- OH LOOK IT'S BILL CIPHER?'' The other ''Gravity Falls SBIG'' installment, which ''does'' have a lot of ship tease moments between the two? It's a prequel to this. So all those teasing moments were between a biological brother and sister.]] This story, in general, isn't very kind with ''any'' Dipper ship as part of a RunningGag.
** Chapter 9, which partly takes place inside a LotusEaterMachine[[note]]Think less "Bill's bubble for Mabel" and more "the Multidimensional Labyrinth from ''Gurren Lagann''"[[/note]], deals one at attempted ForWantOfANail or other rewrites/remakes that spend most of the story, especially near the beginning, [[TheStationsOfTheCanon copying from canon to the point of stealing dialogue word-for-word, with changes coming pretty far into the story if ever.]] Basically, for all her feats and skills, Wendy has a really shitty imagination and tries to re-envision her way of making canon's events "better..." but just ends up throwing in a blatant selt insert ParodySue (even in scenes she was already in) and either having no impact on the story at all or just making a large mess in general.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Spooky]]

* AscendedExtra: Specimen 11 is the one enemy that, for all intents and purposes, gets his own chapter (chapter 4, "[=McDonalds=]").
* TheDragon: Specimen 9 is portrayed as being this to Spooky. No, not just because he's the "final test," but also in the way of him being some kind of commanded soldier under her wing.
* FullFrontalAssault: Specimen 4 spends more time attacking in the buff thanks to losing her outfit early on (this is a nod to two of her proposed designs having her attack in the nude, if with BarbieDollAnatomy). Specimen 13 is just as naked as she is canonically. When the two of them double-team Pacifica and the Pines, Dipper lampshades this.
* InformedAbility: Invoked and parodied with Pacifica. She is ''literally'' shoe-horned into the story (considering [[AbusiveParents her parents]], no, this isn't as bad as that sounds),
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Thanks to this story being a crossover between ''Spooky's'' and ''Gravity Falls'', this means that there are at least ''four'' known "flavors" of ghosts, and could be anywhere up to ''twelve'' counting the journal's ten levels or more depending on how the specimen are counted. There's Spooky's CuteGhostGirl, Specimen 4 being a StringyHairedGhostGirl, Ma and Pa Duskerton, and the Lumberjack Ghost.
* StealthSequel: [[spoiler:This is actually a Stealth ''Prequel'' to ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage''. The ending to the story outright shows Nzyvo wandering through Gravity Falls and Dipper remarking that his mid-summer birthday is coming up. And no, this isn't something like the post-closing notes preview. This fic ''already'' has one of those (to ''Paper John: Sticker Star''), and this part happens before the closing AN... and said notes has Fan confirm that it, indeed, is within the same universe and timeline as ''Journals''.]]
* SurpriseIncest: [[spoiler:Dipper and Pacifica, as they turn out to be biological siblings thanks to this taking place in the same universe as ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage''. Mabel outright does blood tests, finds out that they're related, and ''immediately'' jumps ship from trying to matchmake them, hoping that they would lose interest themselves. Once the sixth chapter of ''Journals'' comes out, Mabel directly mentions the events of ''Spooky's'' (keeping the fact that they are related a secret through both the end of this and the first half of ''Journals'') by saying "You know how I used to try to pair you two up but since we went to that haunted mansion I kind of suddenly stopped doing that?" when asked why she wasn't ''that'' surprised to find out that Pacifica was Nzyvo's twin. (She was still surprised, as she was certain Nzyvo was an alternate universe counterpart, not a total flesh-and-blood sister.)]]

[[folder:Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's... oh wait nevermind it's not even worth looking up for]]

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Melody's status as this is lampshaded twice in the story: first by
* ArtisticLicenceBiology: Melody's backstory and explanation for her powers is that, while working at Meat Cute, she got bit by a radioactive rooster. Apparently the radiation made the chicken [[YouKeepUsingThatWord "evolve"]] teeth, and Melody has powers that quickly go from meat-related to anything regarding animal cells whatsoever. Like being able to grow temporary fins. Or talking to (non-sapient) animals in one case, which happens right before she acts like it's obvious that she can't talk to animals.
* AssholeVictim: Despite being a ''cat'', it's very hard to feel sorry for Chieffster's murder considering how he spends nearly all of his screentime being an ass to ''Soos'' (and the rest of the hero squad). [[spoiler:And this is all ''before'' they find out that Chiefsster used to work for the KKK...]]
* BigBad: [[spoiler:Tad Strange. Interestingly, this marks the first ever male Big Bad for one of Fan's ''Gravity Falls'' fanworks.]]
* BoringButPractical: The BigBad operates this way, as an attempt at aiming to be the inversion of Bill's flashy chaos. They simply coat themselves with invulnerability and "a single laser that just zaps someone away." Although this is only ''after'' [[spoiler:he loses the giant floating head-island he was riding on.]]
* TheCameo:
** The story very, very briefly checks up on what [[spoiler:the Northwest twins]] were doing.
** The professors from ''run:gifocalypse'' make yet another cameo.
* CaptainObvious: Tad Strange. Both as the fifth "partner" to the hero squad, [[spoiler:and after he reveals himself as the Big Bad.]]
-->"If you die outside of the dream, YOU DIE IN REAL LIFE!"
* CaptainObviousReveal:
** The fact that the heroes at the beginning are Soos, [=.GIFfany=], Melody, and Rumble. Considering how the narration flat-out describes them as looking said like people with masks on, and the writing intentionally slips up and calls them by their civilian names. The most surprising thing about this reveal is the fact that the fake-author thought it would be surprising.
** It's not as obvious as the way ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' handled [[spoiler:Walter being a traitor, even to those unfamiliar with ''Hellsing'']], but the fic does not try to hide [[spoiler:Tad Strange being the true Big Bad]] at all. Even if you're unfamiliar with how fans latched on to his name before it was confirmed that he was just a three-appearance joke character and thought of him to be some sort of relative to Bill. If you ''are'', [[spoiler:the fact that Chieffster's killer has a blue square tattoo is a dead giveaway, and the fact that said killer can time travel does more harm to his name than good as it's an easy way to explain how he can be in two places at once.]]
* ConspicuousCG: Mentioned ''in-universe'', despite being a text-only story with no visuals. [[spoiler:Tad Strange]] takes control of the Tooth-island, the latter is said in-text as being in CGI while the former is "stil [sic] [=2D=] traditional animation." There's even an in-universe SpecialEffectsFailure as the "camera pans on," which treats him as a two-sided ''VideoGame/PaperMario''-esque sprite. [[spoiler:Keep in mind that this is ''still'' while he's human, before he transforms into an actual two-dimensional "awake demon."]]
* TheKlan: [[spoiler:Soos and the gang... pay them a visit as Chieffster was an ex-member, and they seemingly know how to defeat Tad Strange. They are portrayed as complete idiots, with the leader even thinking that the Earth is flat and mistakes Rumble for a pirate because of his eyepatch.]]
* PatchworkMap: Gravity Falls is both part of and, in of itself, an example of this (partly natural, partly a bizarre town variation that's a patchwork of different town types). Not only is there a tundra, desert, swamp, jungle, giant cavern, and so much more all within a 10-20 minute horse ride's worth distance (let alone the time it takes to travel in the Bullcatmobile or Shackan-Lagann), but the town itself has a single street bordered by randomly tall, gitty, smoke-surrounded buildings that acts as the "bad part of town." This makes a return from ''Journals''. Also present [[spoiler:and making a return from its steal prequel ''Spooky's'']] is the "New York side of town," a block of skyscrapers with its own train system leading to a "Downtown Gravity Falls," a metropolis that's not physically connected to the town (it's a two+ hour drive away, the train's just really fast) yet still part of its legal territory. The latter is a SelfDeprecation at the old version of ''Carl Steven's Universe'', where Fan somehow found himelf convinced that [[WesternAnimation/StevenUnvierse Beach City]] had a large metropolis area.
* {{Polyamory}}: Directly continuing off of ''Journals'', Soos, Melody, Rumble, and [=.GIFfany=] are in a polygamous four-way relationship. And SickeningSweethearts at that. All four of them appear to love one-another equally, though Melody and Rumble admit that they have trouble really ''talking'' when it's just the two of them, and they consider Soos and/or [=.GIFfany=] as "glue" that helps bring them close.
* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: Not that most of ''[=SBIGlets=]'' isn't this (a possible Spartan Squad spinoff for ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'', for one thing), but this makes it pretty clear that Fan wants to do something bigger and more serious with Soos, Melody, and the video games in the near future.
* PutOnABus: Dipper and Mabel themselves, as this takes place after ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage'', they are [[spoiler:sucked into the timeline of ''Housestuck: The Split'']] during this fic's events. This is actually the job Soos took to try to get extra money to speed up Ford and Nzyvo's project to save them. [[spoiler:Pacifica and Nzyvo Northwest, two other key characters in ''Journals'' (the former moreso in the latter half, as she's absent in the first half), do get small cameos.]]
* RunningGag:
** Whenever someone assumes a mystery figure to be male, [=.GIFfany=] would correct them with gender-neutral variations. In all instances except [[spoiler:one]], the person actually did turn out to be male. [[spoiler:In most cases, said mystery figure turns out to be Tad in one way or another.]]
** "Because this is a spinoff I'm trying to make things smaller than the original ''Journals''." Not only is this hypocritical when you compare ''Housestuck Hurrcain crconikals'' to ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' (the former, the spinoff, being twice as long in chapter count and around ''ten times as long'' in word count), [[spoiler:but he fails to keep this promise. The final battle is somehow even ''more'' over-the-top than the final battle in ''Journals''.]]
* SelfDeprecation:
** The fact that Gravity Falls also has a bustling metropolis area connected by train is a self-knock at the original version of Fan's ''Carl Stevens Universe'', which made the huge mistake of assuming Beach City had a large... well, city portion. And its own huge train station.
** As is tradition with the StylisticSuck ''Gravity Falls'' installments, Fan once again mocks how thin the premise of ''run:gifocalypse'' stretches the WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief, and the general stupidity of the plot in general. Such as when
** The final battle with the main antagonist takes place on top of a jumbo jet. Anyone familiar with Fan's track record of this trope should now where it's going with this -- ''Total Drama World Tour Rewrite'' is like the ButtMonkey of his stories. Near the end, Soos remarks that "That was cooler than ''Total Drama World Tour Rewrite''!" [=.GIFfany=] replies with a rather uncharacteristic "Soos. Anyone can write about a plane taking a shit and that would be a better plane-related story than ''Total Drama World Tour Rewrite''. Compliment harder."
* TookALevelInBadass: Somehow, the gang managed to do this over the span of a few in-story hours. Their battle against the "Suicide Squad" at the beginning was an embarassment, as even when they drop into the fight one-by-one, they keep getting hit by attacks that are pretty mundane and weak by ''SBIG'' standards. In their next mission, on the same day,

[[/folder]]

----

"Oh. Hey. If it isn't [=.GIFfany=]. The anti-me. Whassup girl? Enjoying Haremageddon?"
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Professors Kathody, Searah, and Shannon. Sandy is Ambiguously Pale. Cardia is Ambiguously Orange, and teeters the line between "something that could be a natural skin color" and "flat-out techncolor skin." Rose (pink), Bubbles (red), Leona (yellow), Dian (green), Burnda and Burrda (both cyan), Sonia (blue), Wendy (purple), and Dove (gray) are outright [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation technicolor,]] though. Fan's "concept sketches" show that even Rose's pink, Bubbles's red, and Leona's yellow are nowhere near realistic skin colors.
* DeliberateValuesDissonance:
** [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl None of the copies have any sense of modesty whatsoever,]] and their primary motivation for dressing up is to look nice. This presents a clash
** Professor Wendy's domain, which is populated by ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' fans who even take some of the more questionable things about the show to absolute heart, is and led by one. [[OneSteveLimit (Prof.)]] Wendy herself [[EstablishingCharacterMoment establishes]] this right away by embracing what Fan thinks is one of the more sexist episodes of the show, "Cheer Factor," and flat-out took the "cheerleaders should aim to pep up the football team rather than performing their own feats" idea and interpreted that as "Women should ideally just serve themselves as support for what the men do, because that's what really matters." And it goes downhill from there until she develops out of it. She has strong WouldntHitAGirl standards that she attempts to force on Dipper and Soos[[note]]None of the other copies find it any worse of an issue when they attack them, like Leona being more bothered about Dipper and Mabel vandalizing her work than Dipper trying to attack her. ''Nobody'' also notes that Soos, for all intents and purposes, ''threw Risen-[=.GIFfany=] into a fire'' in canon's events except Risen-[=.GIFfany=] herself and Professor Wendy, as the rest justify his action under self-defense.[[/note]] despite being physically stronger than either of them will ever be and the former being only 12 years old. Then she attempts to force the guys into a deadly, SeriousBusiness variant of American Football... Considering how the other [=.GIFfany=] copies up to and after this point have been remarkably neutral when it comes to gender (outside of Risen-[=.GIFfany=] targetting real girls, [[MurderTheHypotenuse but "that's because" it's the group Soos is attracted to]]), to the point where nobody bats an eye at three of the professors (Kathody, Dian, and Shannon -- note that Wendy's placement in the "professor daisy chain" is ''right between the latter two'', something Fan admits is a coincidence[[note]]He picked the three professors at random[[/note]]) being in lesbian relationships with their last (or rather current, but things get complicated in "Game Over" when all the professor meet with their players in-person again) players, this comes off as very jarring.\\
\\



* {{Narm}}:
** In a meta example, it's kind of hard to take this seriously if you know that the story's ''very own author'' not only wrote another fic which listed faults in the story's logic (or why [=.GIFfany=], copy army or no, would likely not do this) and had no backup counter-arguments, but said fic was a StylisticSuck one at that. ''The Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage'' makes more sense than ''run:gifocalypse'' depending on how you look at things.
** The portion of chapter 10 spent on Shannon's domain (which is roughly 3/4ths of the chapter to boot -- unlike chapter 3 attempting to give Kathody and Searah's domains roughly equal screentime, Fan thought it would be better-paced if the ''King of the Hill'' fanclub did not get as much exposure as the other location of the chapter) attempts to be a horror-fest, much like its inspiration of [[VideoGame/{{OFF}} Zone 3.]] It also attempts to throw in humor here and there. The end result falls under this. Probably the most jarring is when Shannon reveals herself -- Professor Wendy ''still'' insists on barging into fights to try stalking the humans (at least with the Glitch attacking her, it felt like it was better suited narratively), Wendy Corduroy at one point vacuums her anti-climactically (which is especially jarring since she was the one professor who actually would have '''won''' had she not had an emotional breakdown for thinking that her winning was impossible), and the story briefly pauses as it not only describes P. Wendy's self-inflicted ClothingDamage, but also cites the inspiration for them much like P. Wendy keeps citing the episodes her viewpoints are based off of. It was intended to be a mini-ShooOutTheClowns moment with P. Wendy being the "clown," but it really just kills off a good chunk of the tension when the group faces off with Shannon shortly after.
** "Kathody" and "Searah" are at least supposed to be viewed as more "regular lighthearted episodic romp"-ish villains of the week, so their overly forced pun names made sense. Burnda and Burrda, on the other hand, are post-CerebusSyndrome professors. The burn/burr pun, which was taken directly from ''Mario'' of all things, doesn't really fit well with moments that are supposed to be dramatic.



* ''[=HuniePop=], AKA That No-No Game Markiplier Played'': This was unintentional until like minutes ''after'' I actually typed it down, but it's a retroactive reference: Leona's followers prank [=.GIFfany=] by vandalizing one of her skirts and making it a deep red. Which would make it resemble '''T'''iffany's skirt/uniform in general. By an amazing coincidence Kyu is one of [=.GIFfany=]'s "outfits" during her rapid black void flash before the final battle. Dove is called a giga-bitch... like with the phrase "mega-bitch" used to describe Audrey.

[[folder:World Settings & Liberated Worlds]]

* In World 11, the Liberator goes to {{Hell|gate}}. Multiple Hells. It's... not ''as'' bad as one would expect,
* World 12. For starters, since World 11 is "Universe," you're left unsure what even ''could'' be the escalating setting for the final area. Turns out it's called "Beyond." But that's not all. The place is a complete MindScrew, set within concepts like patches between universes
* The concept of the Giant Space Cockroaches going back to the "liberated" areas and unleashing giant spiders that specifically target the Liberator may ''sound'' silly, but the way it's handled isn't.

[[folder:Roylel]]

* The plot seems pretty straight-foreward if [[ExcusePlot Excuse-y]] for the most part. Then you beat the boss of the otherwise harmless (despite being partly inspired by one of the creepiest parts of ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'') World 5, and find yourself having a random encounter (in a game where, Liberated Worlds aside, has ''all'' encounters appear on the field). You're met with this... ''thing'' that looks somewhat vaguely like an unmoving woman (again, every other enemy in the game has an idle animation, and they're often rather expressive at that) stitched together, with two extra eyes and appearing to also be stitched with cat parts. She's clearly not this game's version of a zombie -- you encounter a family of them in World 3. Scan reveals that she only has one hit point, one attack point, and no defense, and attacking her causes her to instantly turn into pieces of pink cloth. This is the first encounter with Roylel. It comes the hell out of nowhere, and you're not given a proper explanation of it until World ''10''.
* Roylel finally reveals who -- or rather, what she is -- with a simple WhamLine during her second encounter in world 10. She is clothing. All clothing. Even, [[EldritchAbomination somehow,]] makeshift clothing. Cue still images of various citizens around Existence seeing their clothes suddenly grow eyes, mouths, and limbs -- every type of proper garment in existence is her, and she can transform and control any one of them at will.

* CowboyBeBopAtHisComputer: Sometimes known to goof up his fact-checking, or not fact-check.
** He admits that in the original ''Total Drama World Tour Rewrite'', he attempted to partly re-create the opening partly from memory, rather than looking up a transcript. He ended up thinking this was a ''good'' thing -- he finds ripping something word-for-word from canon would become a '''major''' pet peeve of his[[note]]Unless it's through a short FlashBack to canon, a sort of IronicEcho, etc. Note that ''run:gifocalypse'' does both, and near the end[[/note]] and he did not want to be held as a hypocrite because of it.
** ''Carl Stevens Universe'', before its rewrite, claimed that Beach City had a large metropolis area that was, while not mentioned in-fic, "very close" to Beach City. Fan says that getting rid of that was his biggest motivation to writing the re-write. It's also one of his most-often [[SelfDeprecation self-mocked]] elements of any of his stories behind ''Total Drama World Tour Rewrite'' as a whole.
** Kamina's appearance in ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' was written before Fan actually watched ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. It... [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness kind of]] [[ShallowParody shows.]] His first action after revealing he's the true identity of the Master Chief (just ignore this for now) is to whip a Giga Drill Break out of nowhere. It's ''technically'' true that Kamina invented the technique, but he only got one use out of it [[spoiler:before dying]] and it became the signature move of ''Simon''. He also does this mechless, and as a result doesn't even have a pre-existing drill to turn into a break. Also, he calls it Giga Drill ''Breaker'', after an often-used misunderstanding. Notably, the ''SBIG'' series tries to pull this off intentionally (see below), but this was admitted to be a complete accident.
** Another accidental example in the otherwise-intentional HUC is that the Vampire Priest (referred to as "First Boss") ends up attacking a generic forest, rather than the village of Cheddar. Even in the "Great Typo Cleanup," this mistake was left in (as with Kamina's Giga Drill Break creating a drill out of ''nothing'') because of "staying true to that particular fuck-up."
** ''SBIG'' does this a lot, and [[StylisticSuck intentionally.]]
*** According to ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals'', the ''Halo'' series was developed by Nintendo, Liquid Snake is one of three clones of Solid Snake (along with Gas Snake and Plasma Snake), Samus is Mega Man's mother,

!! The Spooks of Something Unrelated to the Above

'''All spoilers are unmarked.'''

[[folder:World Settings & Liberated Worlds]]

* In World 11, the Liberator goes to {{Hell|gate}}. Multiple Hells. It's... not ''as'' bad as one would expect,
* World 12. For starters, since World 11 is "Universe," you're left unsure what even ''could'' be the escalating setting for the final area. Turns out it's called "Beyond." But that's not all. The place is a complete MindScrew, set within concepts like patches between universes
* The concept of the Giant Space Cockroaches going back to the "liberated" areas and unleashing giant spiders that specifically target the Liberator may ''sound'' silly, but the way it's handled isn't. If you return to an already-cleared world, which is completely optional unless you count the return to the Lab for the final boss,

[[folder:Roylel]]

* The plot seems pretty straight-foreward if [[ExcusePlot Excuse-y]] for the most part. Then you beat the boss of the otherwise harmless (despite being partly inspired by one of the creepiest parts of ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'') World 5, and find yourself having a random encounter (in a game where, Liberated Worlds aside, has ''all'' encounters appear on the field). You're met with this... ''thing'' that looks somewhat vaguely like an unmoving woman (again, every other enemy in the game has an idle animation, and they're often rather expressive at that) stitched together, with two extra eyes and appearing to also be stitched with cat parts. She's clearly not this game's version of a zombie -- you encounter a family of them in World 3. Scan reveals that she only has one hit point, one attack point, and no defense, and attacking her causes her to instantly turn into pieces of pink cloth. This is the first encounter with Roylel. It comes the hell out of nowhere, and you're not given a proper explanation of it until World ''10''.
* Roylel finally reveals who -- or rather, what she is -- with a simple WhamLine during her second encounter in world 10. She is clothing. All clothing. Even, [[EldritchAbomination somehow,]] makeshift clothing. Cue still images of various citizens around Existence seeing their clothes suddenly grow eyes, mouths, and limbs -- every type of proper garment in existence is her, and she can transform and control any one of them at will. Be thankful the game isn't real.
-->'''Liberator:''' Wait. You- you're... made of clothing?\\
'''Roylel:''' I'm not made of clothing... ''I '''AM''' CLOTHING!''

[[folder:Related to the Liberator and the Professor]]

* While the Professor [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight was absolutely correct about clothing being a mind-control conspiracy]] in this game's world, the fact that the Liberator unquestionably follows everything he says and treats it as absolute fact in spite of how much of a blatant nut the Professor is

* CowboyBeBopAtHisComputer: Sometimes known to goof up his fact-checking, or not fact-check.
** He admits that in the original ''Total Drama World Tour Rewrite'', he attempted to partly re-create the opening partly from memory, rather than looking up a transcript. He ended up thinking this was a ''good'' thing -- he finds ripping something word-for-word from canon would become a '''major''' pet peeve of his[[note]]Unless it's through a short FlashBack to canon, a sort of IronicEcho, etc. Note that ''run:gifocalypse'' does both, and near the end[[/note]] and he did not want to be held as a hypocrite because of it.
** ''Carl Stevens Universe'', before its rewrite, claimed that Beach City had a large metropolis area that was, while not mentioned in-fic, "very close" to Beach City. Fan says that getting rid of that was his biggest motivation to writing the re-write. It's also one of his most-often [[SelfDeprecation self-mocked]] elements of any of his stories behind ''Total Drama World Tour Rewrite'' as a whole.
** Kamina's appearance in ''Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals'' was written before Fan actually watched ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. It... [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness kind of]] [[ShallowParody shows.]] His first action after revealing he's the true identity of the Master Chief (just ignore this for now) is to whip a Giga Drill Break out of nowhere. It's ''technically'' true that Kamina invented the technique, but he only got one use out of it [[spoiler:before dying]] and it became the signature move of ''Simon''. He also does this mechless, and as a result doesn't even have a pre-existing drill to turn into a break. Also, he calls it Giga Drill ''Breaker'', after an often-used misunderstanding. Notably, the ''SBIG'' series tries to pull this off intentionally (see below), but this was admitted to be a complete accident.
** Another accidental example in the otherwise-intentional HUC is that the Vampire Priest (referred to as "First Boss") ends up attacking a generic forest, rather than the village of Cheddar. Even in the "Great Typo Cleanup," this mistake was left in (as with Kamina's Giga Drill Break creating a drill out of ''nothing'') because of "staying true to that particular fuck-up."
** ''SBIG'' does this a lot, and [[StylisticSuck intentionally.]]
*** According to ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals'', the ''Halo'' series was developed by Nintendo, Liquid Snake is one of three clones of Solid Snake (along with Gas Snake and Plasma Snake), Samus is Mega Man's mother,
*** ''Hecksing: The Dawn'' features "The Demo Run," where Lex Luthor attacks Hecksing with his minions. Said minions? Catwoman, Mystique, and '''the Flash'''. Also, [[CatsHateWater Catwoman can be defeated by having completely ordinary water splashed on her.]]
