->What happens when a [[{{Delinquents}} local teen miscreant]] starts getting straight A's and joins the swim team, all because his parents wished it - and as a result, he's [[EmptyShell some kind of automaton]]? Or when an overweight woman wishes she could lose weight, and wakes up at [[NothingButSkinAndBones a dangerously low 90 pounds]] and goes into insulin shock? Or anybody who goes into the local library finds their voices stolen, because the librarian wished that everybody would just ''be quiet?'' [[FountainOfYouth Old people become young again]], but are still afflicted with things like arthritis, cancer or Alzheimer's. Or [[WeatherDissonance a blizzard strikes in June, or it becomes a blistering 100 degrees]] because someone wished for a change of seasons.

->''Angwe taught them the error of their ways. He was like dropping Libertarians into Somalia: the embodiment of everything they claimed to want, and it was killing them. He camped a bottlenecked rout to Menethil Harbor, the only path to a couple of mid-level Alliance destinations, and murdered every single person who passed every single time they tried.''

->''There are two main types of MMO. In Player vs. Environment (PVE), everyone's in it together fighting the monsters, and in Player vs. Player (PVP), you can kill each other...because everyone thinks they're going to be Franchise/MadMax instead of the guy who tries to catch the razor boomerang.''

->''There was more online rage against Angwe than against everyone else [[GodwinsLaw who's ever been compared to Hitler combined]]. There is no body part he hasn't been accused of sucking, eating, being or enjoying his mother's. He received death threats, but VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft death threats are less worrying than fireballs, which can at least pretend to hurt something. Angwe even had an Alliance account so he could listen to his victims, and in an act of combat dickery worthy of the U.S. Army Psychological Ops division [[HiddenInPlainSight it was called "Angwespy."]]''

->''He was the incarnation of Player vs. Player. People asked if he ever worked. Some wondered if he even ''slept''. They wrote entire [=FAQs=] on how to get past him involving teleportation stones, clone characters and leaping from the boat and swimming along the shore instead of going through the port. Players regularly went through more hassle to get past Angwe than real people did to get into America. He was less a dick than a force of nature, a landscape-altering dick deforming the entire world like Zeus or Odin. Beating him was an achievement back before that was a thing.''
