%%* AudienceAlienatingPremise* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Chick Tracts are about a world where the devil literally controls everything and anything, people are almost always amoral idiots, monsters roam the night, and the only path to salvation is a tiny, fringe religious denomination that is entirely fine with over 99% of the rest of the world population going to hell if they don't decide to convert.


Added DiffLines:

* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: A lot of religious skeptics (y'know, some of Chick's favorite targets of criticism) enjoy these tracts just for the sheer hilarious {{Narm}}. "Dark Dungeons" is also popular among tabletop gamers for the same reason.

* KarmicMisfire: the unintended message is that God will send even good people to hell for not expressly accepting a very specific set of Independent Baptist teachings while people who unapologetically live their entire lives in a manner that's destructive to themselves and others will get off with no punishment or consequences of any kind if they accept Jesus by saying the correct magic words right before death.

** The notorious "Dark Dungeons" made roleplaying out to be an exciting life-or-death scenario that introduced real occultism and gave players fabulous supernatural powers that they can use to [[MindControl brainwash]] their parents into buying them stuff. More than a few roleplayers love the tract and it has been parodied and affectionately referred to in innumerable ways among the subculture.

* CriticalResearchFailure: Pretty much everything. Like many religious fanatics, Chick has no interest in such boring things as facts or reality if they get in the way of a good tirade:

* CriticalResearchFailure: "Dark Dungeons" is similar to the film ''Film/MazesAndMonsters'' in that it bears little resemblance to how RolePlayingGames are actually played. For example, Marcie is instantly declared dead and does not even get to make a saving throw to see if she survives. Generally, instant deaths in role-playing are reserved for important non-player characters. She is also treated as though she "no longer exists"; it's not like she could take her character and go to ''another'' gaming group, or even have someone here pay for a resurrection! Or, y'know, ''roll up a new character'' instead of getting booted from the gaming group.
