...by Brian Clevinger himself. Assuming that there is no sudden double-twist on one of the most massive anticlimaxes ever to walk the earth, readers of ''8-Bit Theater'' will be directed to his other comics under the pretense of "Now, want to see what Brian can do at the top of his game while ''not'' going to elaborate lengths to mess with his audience?" Anyone not reading them already will rush over, hoping that he'll do it "right" this time. Only time will tell if they are walking into the same trap. (This, of course, assumes that he had the likes of ''AtomicRobo'' and ''HowIKilledYourMaster'' in mind way back in 2001 and simply chose not to act on them until relatively recently, because The Plan dictated as much.)

Black Mage will attempt one last time to impress White Mage by doing some genuinely good deeds. Of course, this being Black Mage, this deeds won't ''actually'' be genuine and just an underhanded scheme to trick her and earn false credit for everything. Tired of dealing with him, White Mage crosses over to our world and watches ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', asking an unseen someone "...And they always watch things like this?" Returning to their world, she then turns Black Mage, Fighter, Thief and Red Mage in {{Expy}}s of the MST3K crew and sends them off to the same fate, finally explaining the ''Theater'' part of the title!

Pointless, an anticlimax to both the strip (being the epilogue) and the wait (several weeks at least), and, well, [[AmericanCustomaryMeasurements 12/25]].

In the epilogue, White Mage is looking for Black Mage and Fighter. She will eventually find them. The universe will proceed to turn on its axis and all reality will combust as she and Black Mage make mediocre love in a location that will provide for maximum humor. Their child, born from the union of goodness and ultimate evil, will be [[TrueNeutral Grey Mage]], and will go on to create the [[{{Futurama}} Neutrals]].

They are like the blood-filled prop knives, only they don't retract much and they contain HealingPotion. It's been shown that smashing a healing potion into one's face is enough to get the effect, and so it could be that it just needs to get into the blood. Healing Shivs may run out; if they don't, then the healing potions could be [[{{Futurama}} the excrement of a slug]], and little slugs are contained in the handles of every HealingShiv.

Quite likely DungeonsAndDragons, or a similar tabletop game that works according to Red Mage's ideas of how the world should work (a ''{{Munchkin}}'' RPG, perhaps?) If the inside of the holes are a pocket dimension, and the outside of each hole is on the inside of the other hole, there need be no connection to the world of 8BT, and Sarda could just assume they were dead since they were no longer in the universe.
