* AddledAddict: It’s impossible to tell if Eightball is this or a slightly terrifying form of FunctionalAddict. Even after he goes cold turkey, he’s as bizarre in his behaviour as ever.



* AIIsACrapshoot: D.W.I.C.K, apparently. It briefly appeared to have taken over Dwick Dwickcast Syndykyt. Terrorbyte activated it during his short-lived coup attempt following the real Dwick's multi-day disappearance. Hijinks ensured.
