[[http://thewrightway.deviantart.com/gallery/30693738 The CRONIES]] is a fanfiction series that takes place primarily in the [[SonicTheHedgehog Sonic universe]]. Written formally by a trio of fanfic writers called "The Triple Peeps", this tale was originally meant to be a '"Friends"' parody, hence why the title card looks like that.

Sonic and Shadow were sitting in the [[GreasySpoon Eggman Cafe]]. Shadow comments that the coffee tastes like Eggman, Sonic asks him ''how'' he knows what Eggman tastes like, and then a random person busts in and yells that the bank's being stolen (building and all). Henceforth, the two of them decide to make up their own superhero team, consisting of their pals, Amy Rose as the adorable "team secretary", and "[[MyFriendsAndZoidberg sometimes Eggman.]]"

From there, comedic adventures occasionally fueled by an ongoing arc/plot would occur. Villain(s) will rear their ugly heads, asses will get kicked, the villain(s) will be trounced afterwards, and [[NonSequitur commercials will happen inbetween.]]

There are a couple of 'Side-stories', per se, that fit into the 'Croniesverse', but are hard to gauge where they exist in the timeline. They are:

- [[http://www.angelfire.com/realm/jonnyquest/fics/JQ_Vs_L_S.html Jonny Quest Vs. Li Syaoran]] ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. The official prequel, so to speak, of Eggman Adventures. [[WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures Jessie Bannon]] tells Jonny about a young martial artist named Li Syaoran who could beat him up. Meanwhile, a dinner at Sakura's house goes awfully awry when Syaoran mixes it up with her big brother, Touya. And WHY were Shadow and Eggman in the neighborhood at the time??

- [[http://mediaminer.org/fanfic/view_ch.php/73726/237238#fic_c Sonic Iron Chef!]] ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. [[CookingDuel Sonic and Shadow challenge two of the original]] [[IronChef Iron Chefs]]. The commercials were food related, and was also the starting point of [[VideoGame/TalesOfEternia Farah Oersted]]'s unerring hatred towards Eggman. Takes place somewhere before Eggman Adventures 3.

- [[http://www.mediaminer.org/fanfic/view_ch.php/73727/237239#fic_c Eggman... on ICE!!!]] Eggman decides one day to make a skating version of his life story, and [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters EVERYONE'S]] [[MegaCrossover INVITED TO WATCH!!]] WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong? Takes place somewhere before Cronies 7.

- [[http://www.mediaminer.org/fanfic/view_ch.php/73728/237243#fic_c The Davis and Akuma Chronicles]] This one-shot story takes place after the events of Eggman on Ice, and during [[spoiler:the "Eggman betrays the gang and Shadow and Rouge were in on it all along, just so they could abduct Tails"]] arc, a.k.a. after Cronies 9. A day in the life of [[BloodKnight "The Master of the Fist",]] [[StreetFighter Akuma]] and happy-go-lucky Digidestined, [[DigimonAdventure02 Davis Motomiya]].

Recently {{Uncanceled}} with the posting of Cronies TRY 8.
----
!!Tropes found within the CRONIES:

* [[http://www.mediaminer.org/fanfic/view_ch.php/73727/237239#fic_c Eggman...]] OnIce!!
* AbsurdlyHighStakesGame: When the villain of the day was [[Manga/YuGiOh the manga Yugi Mutoh]], the one who killed people with his Shadow Games before "Duel Monsters" was introduced, [[SeriousBusiness he challenged every single member of the Cronies to Shadow Games.]] And suffer they DID... Up until Manga Yugi was [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice hammered with extreme prejudice]] by Amy Rose. In the '''crotch.'''
* AdaptationalBadass: Tails, oh so much. His GadgeteerGenius traits have reached Reed Richards levels and his story paths in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' and ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'' are considered canon, rather than SelfServingMemory.
* AirborneAircraftCarrier: Eggman's Egg Carrier. As well as Il Palazzo's massively floating fortress in Eggman Adventures 5 and 6.
** [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic The Tuatha de Danaan,]] a high-tech submarine, has a ''secret airship mode'' utilized by Tessa Testarossa as a plan to [[MurderTheHypotenuse get rid of Kaname.]] She was convinced by Gauron to do it, though.
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: {{Kirby}} and friends, [[{{Metroid}} the Space Pirates]], and [[PhantasyStarOnline the people of Pioneer 2]] can all converse freely with the characters.
* AlternateUniverse
* BadassBystander: Hungry Phil, a hobo whose face we never really get to see. He especially proved his worth as both an Eggman Death-General, and with his HeroicSacrifice as he fought the horde of Anime/{{Hamtaro}} hamsters. He reappeared in an Eggman Adventures 4 commercial. Yes, he had an extra life.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Knuckles and Rouge, played with since their initial encounters from Sonic Adventure 2. And the way they insult each other/going into random make-out sessions put this easily into WillTheyOrWontThey territory. But in the end, Rouge doesn't really want any of that, and Knuckles doesn't get the hint...
* BerserkButton: All in all, most characters have a vice that triggers this.
** Don't piss Tails off, neglect/insult his inventions, or destroy his house right in front of him.
** Never refuse to buy a flower from [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Aeris]], and especially don't call Sephiroth "[[EmbarrassingNickname Sephy]]" because [[BewareTheNiceOnes only she's allowed to call Sephy "Sephy".]]
** Don't call Sonic crazy, or endanger his friends, or remind him that he can't fly, glide, swim, teleport, or anything else that'd make him seem inferior to Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, etc.
** Don't mention Eggman's name (or BE Eggman) in front of [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Tomoyo Daidouji]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfEternia Farah Oersted]], [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Daigo Kazama]], [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Kaname Chidori]], and many others.
** Shadow doesn't like Knuckles...
** [[StreetFighter Akuma]] has Davis. Everything he does annoys him, but he won't let anyone else kill Davis...
* BigBad: The Moon Kingdom in the last few chapters of CRONIES and Eggman Adventures, but its their benefactors, The Axis of Evil, who are revealed to be behind the assault. In TRY, it's straight-up the Axis of Evil.
* BigDamnHeroes: There are a few times that this trope gets invoked.
* BigNo: Used to some effect at times. Sometimes seriously, sometimes for a laugh.
* BizarroUniverse: "The Inter-Companions" feel like this to the Cronies. Because of their kindness, they even make Amy defect from the Cronies... until she discovers their twisted tendencies and [[LawfulEvil they decide]] [[BitchInSheepsClothing that the world]] [[KillThemAll isn't worth saving]]...
* BrilliantButLazy: The Cronies, when they have to, can really put their game faces on and save the day, but they really wish they could just be lazy and just do whatever they want. Their laziness, however, can put them at a disadvantage in the beginning, and it usually takes a beating or an Amy-abduction for them [[LetsGetDangerous to get their act together.]] Averted during TRY, where they actually try to stop their enemies on the first try.
** Kirby and [[VideoGame/TalesOfEternia Reid Hershel]] have always been this. Prominent and deadly fighters, but the former just wants to eat and sleep all day, and the latter wants to stick to his carefree and simple schedule.
* BulletHell: Amy suffered under one when she was piloting the {{Ikaruga}} against Eggman's automated battle fleet. [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard The Boss Ship fired rainbow-colored beams and bullets at her...]]
* CallingYourAttacks
* ClusterFBomb / PrecisionFStrike / AtomicFBomb: Characters are not shy when it comes to swears...
* ComedicSociopathy: Present throughout, though Shadow and Tails are the major offenders.
* ContinuityNod: So many, since the series accepts most of the Sonic games as having happened, as well as continuities from games, anime, and even within the contained Cronies universe as well.
** One important example: the existence of the rap crew who rapped for Knuckles's stages during Sonic Adventure 2. They rap the opening of the first opening theme for CRONIES episodes, and again for the CRONIES TRY theme. They also DESTROY [[DonkeyKong64 Donkey Kong's Rap Crew]]...
** The mention of the Space Colony ARK, of Station Square, of Chaos destroying Station Square, of [[SonicBattle Amy's apartment in Central City]], etc.
** Davis living with Akuma on his secluded island after the events of "Eggman... on ICE!!!"
** Cream saying that Amy used to be so much nicer, before Sega magically aged her 4 years for VideoGame/SonicAdventure.
* CoolCar: The Cronari. It has jet engines inside it so it could go really fast. It was a given since without it, Sonic and friends would just be able to outrun it. Lasts until the beginning of Cronies TRY. There's also the [[CoolBoat Cro-boat]], complete with tank treads for on-land purposes, the Cro-sub (which is a supremely upgraded version of Tails's [[TailsAdventure Sea-Fox]] submarine), and the space-faring [[CoolStarship Cro-shuttle]], capable of travel all the way to Pioneer 2 and the planet Ragol.
* CoolTeacher: In his own, CloudCuckoolander way, Captain Falcon is very much this. Also a BadassTeacher.
* CourtroomAntic: Sol turns up to pull ''several'' in one chapter. Possibly just to screw with the judge, who happens to be his main rival.
* CreepyDoll: Tails Doll, of the "psychic monster" variety.
-->'''Metal Sonic''': It hugged me and didn't dismantle me on touch, so I guess its on my side! I'm actually kinda grateful about that.
* [[EldritchAbomination Culinary Abomination]]: "[[DeepFriedWhatever The Deep-Fried]] [[MountainOfFood Mountain]] [[AwesomeMcCoolName O' Stuff.]]" VideoGame/{{Diablo}} [[TooSpicyForYogSothoth broke a tooth eating some of it.]]
--> '''Eggman''': [[ItTastesLikeFeet It tastes like shit.]]
* CutawayGag: It's present in either the "Next Time, ON..." segments, the rare "Previously, ON..." segments, the commercials themselves, or sometimes in the main story, as described by certain characters. An example was the short skit of how Dr. Eggman tried to kill DoctorDoom because he wasn't paid royalties for all the Doombots he helped make for him.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Sailor Mercury's is mocked by Rouge, who [[{{Stripperiffic}} is hardly one to talk.]]
--> '''Sailor Mercury''': Oh, I'M indecent, Ms. "heart-shaped barely large enough halter top?"
--> '''Rouge''' (gasps): You bitch!
* EldritchAbomination / FromNobodyToNightmare: SIX FISH. Thanks to Gauron throwing an intact plastic six-pack holder into the ocean, six normal fish get tangled up inside it. They then [[TookALevelInBadass start working in tandem to terrorize the sea and eat sharks...]] [[BodyHorror Now they're a six-headed, serpentine sea horror]], its former shackles now a monstrous collar.
* EraSpecificPersonality: {{Magneto}} turns up in his relatively ridiculous incarnation from WesternAnimation/TheFantasticFour1978.
* EvasiveFightThreadEpisode: Ky shows up to fight [[SuperMode Gold]] [[SNKBoss Sol]] and uses the Chaos Emeralds to try and keep up while the Cronies flee in terror. It's unlikely he won, but who can say?
* [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace Everyone Can Breathe In Space]]
* {{Expy}}: Random Person A is pretty much [[ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}} Loud Howard]].
* FaceHeelTurn: Knuckles, Shadow, Rouge, and Amy, under Tomoyo's "Eggman Empire", during Eggman Adventures 1 and 2. They changed back after getting defeated. [[spoiler:Shadow and Rouge again, at the end of Cronies 9, because they revealed to be working with Eggman all along to aid him in conquering the world. They came back to the good side after Eggman flashed his junk at them for their 'reward'...]]
* TheFaceless: Bob (Eggman's Scottish Cameraman), and Hungry Phil.
* FanNickname: In-universe, Sonic has called the giant orca in Emerald Coast 'Dreamcast'.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Dr. Eggman
* FiveManBand: A little difficult with six/seven, but it is doable.
** TheHero: Sonic
** TheLancer: Shadow
** TheSmartGuy: Tails (oh, so, very, much!)
** TheBigGuy: Knuckles
** TheChick: Amy Rose (for kidnapping purposes; she is NOT the heart of the group...)
** ActionGirl: Rouge, Blaze (also the SixthRanger as of TRY), and Amy (when she's not kidnapped)
** TokenEvilTeammate: Eggman
* ForgotFlandersCouldDoThat: Knuckles, of all characters, manages to temporarily defeat Manga Yugi by trapping him in a penalty game. This being [[ButtMonkey Knuckles]], it eventually backfires.
* GadgeteerGenius: Tails, as per his nature, but taken UpToEleven. All of his vehicles, he's created in spans of either twenty minutes, to the latest of a sleepless night.
--> '''Knuckles''': Build us a "Cro-shuttle", stat!
--> '''Tails''': Give me twenty minutes!
--> '''Blaze''': [[FlatWhat Twenty minutes?]]
--> '''Sonic''': He's giving us the worst-case scenario. He'll probably be done in five.
* GreasySpoon: Not exactly grimy, but the notable ones are the Eggman Cafe in Station Square, the Bowser Cafe in the Mushroom Kingdom, and the (comparably nicer) Il Palazzo Cafe in the City of Fukuoka. A more straight-forward example, introduced in Eggman Adventures 10, is '''"Knuckles the Echidna's Pancakes and Steak: Together at Last!"'''
* TheGunslinger: Shadow becomes obsessed with his mail-order pistol in time for his self-titled game. Later, Nack the Weasel and Noel Vermillion get in on the act.
* TheHeartless: [[KingdomHearts THE Heartless, natch.]] During Ansem's attacks in Eggman Adventures 5 and 6. And The Nobodies, since Xemnas is in league with The Axis Of Evil.
* HeelFaceTurn: Sometimes, the villains the Cronies defeat will either become their friend, or cut their shit out. Tails personally dubbed this [[BreathOfFireIV "The Fou Lu Theory".]]
* HeroesUnlimited: The Associates, consisting of [[TheLeader Sephiroth]], [[TheChick Sailor Mercury]] (cementing her HeelFaceTurn), [[MeltyBlood Shiki]] [[KnifeNut Tohno]], [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Sousuke]] [[CrazyPrepared Sagara]], [[{{Slayers}} Xellos]], [[TheLancer Vect]][[{{Vectorman}} orman]], and [[WorldOfWarcraft Captain]] [[SixthRanger Placeholder]]
* HeyItsThatVoice: While it's not voice-acted at all, one can't help but picture the character's last heard of media voice when reading this.
** In Knuckles's retarded flashback in Cronies 9, he narrates himself as he's being voiced by DanGreen.
** In Tomo's retarded flashback in Eggman Adventures 10, she imagines Sonic being voiced by Jaleel White.
* ILied: Played with. Genis and Lloyd, sensing that Raine was coming for them, told outrageous half-truths to Captain Falcon to dehumanize her, like teaching in a one-room schoolhouse, continuously slapping the both of them, [[BlatantLies beating Lloyd to the point that his digestive tract doesn't work properly]], and [[BrotherSisterIncest even going as far as saying that Genis was molested many times by her]], [[CrossesTheLineTwice especially to Lloyd's surprise.]] After Captain Falcon saves the both of them from Raine, Genis is surprised to hear that [[{{Shotacon}} she really DID molest Genis at least twice, while he was sleeping]]. Lloyd believes it's Karma using his voodoo powers to punish Genis for lying to Captain Falcon. [[HeroicBSOD Genis, however...]]
* ISeeDeadPeople: Sakura Kinomoto's brother, Touya. In "Jonny Quest Vs. Li Syaoran", he [[ZergRush sics his ghostly undead buddies]] on Syaoran. Touya ultimately lost.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Davis gave up a chance to be in a relationship with Yolei (someone he really liked), because he knew Ken liked her as well, and he doesn't like hurting his friends...
* JumpRopeAntics: This was a running gag in the early chapters, where Dr. Eggman skips rope while singing 'slightly modified' children's jump rope songs. With painful results.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Most of the times, when it's ever brought up, it's subtle.
** BreakingTheFourthWall: Except for...
--> '''Tails:''' Oops, sorry! I certainly didn't want to insult our readers' intelligence.
--> '''Knuckles:''' Yeah, [[TakeThatAudience all two of them!]]
--> '''Shadow:''' Dude, fourth wall!
--> '''Knuckles:''' KNUCKLES CLIMBS '''ALL WALLS!''' '''''ESPECIALLY''''' THE FOURTH!
** And this little gem from Eggman Adventures 10:
--> '''Eggman:''' And why the hell am '''I''' not the main feature in this final chapter?
--> '''Sonic:''' CUZ YOU'RE ALWAYS MOOCHING OFF OF US IN THE CRONIES CHAPTERS!!
--> '''Eggman:''' '''I'M HILARIOUS!!'''
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters
* {{Lolicon}}: [[Franchise/SailorMoon Tuxedo Mask.]] He ''loves'' his Sailor Scouts, not to mention HIS commercials are... [[{{Squick}} interesting...]]
** And if you're a {{Lolicon}} or {{Shotacon}}, Captain Falcon '''will''' hurt you.
* MegaCrossover
* TheMovie: Eggman Adventures Episode 5 was the prelude leading into the lengthy and epic Episode 6, and is thusly titled "[[TitleDrop The Movie]]".
** In terms of length and mass, "Eggman... on ICE!!!" is also considered a movie, especially since it took the writers almost a ''full year'' to finish it.
* TheMunchausen: Just like {{Nabeshin}}, Dr. Eggman apparently knows everyone in the universe, whether they think of him as good or evil. [[AvertedTrope Except he never knew who Nabeshin was until he met him for the first time.]]
* NamesTheSame: The faceless Scottish cameraman for Eggman, Bob, is not the same as [[{{Tekken}} a certain blond and rotund martial artist...]]
* NonSequitur
* NoodleIncident: We'll never get to figure out how some people, like Shadow and Sephiroth, know what Eggman tastes like.
* NotSoStoic: [[GuiltyGear Ky Kiske]] tends to lose his grip on the SanityBall whenever Jam plays her MsFanservice routine, and Sol remains his BerserkButton. [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Ion]] also lost his cool after getting kicked in the nuts by Luke.
* OhCrap: Many moments where this has been invoked.
* PowerTrio / ComicTrio / TerribleTrio: Eggman, [[SuperMarioBros Bowser]], and [[Manga/ExcelSaga Il Palazzo]], whenever they team up. Eggman usually comes up with his villainous plans, Il Palazzo calls out the flaws, and Bowser's in the middle of either agreeing with Eggman, or siding with Il Palazzo (although the three of them are pretty much even with each other). They are quite a dangerous trio when they get their gamefaces on, though. Eggman's the MadScientist with [[MoreDakka a lot of guns]]; Bowser's TheBrute and has his vast minions and fire powers. And Il Palazzo retains his subtle BadAss stylings as he uses magic and guns. And since they were friends since high school, the three of them pretty much get each other. All three of them have also, at times, reduced themselves to being bumbling idiots who go off tangent.
** PowerTrio: Sonic (speed), Tails (flight and brains), Knuckles (brawn)
** TerribleTrio: The heads of the Axis of Evil: [[spoiler:Eggboy, [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII Xemnas]], and the head of TabletopGame/{{Monopoly}} himself, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Mr. Moneybags]]...]]
* TheScrappy: In-universe, [[SonicX Chris Thorndyke]] to the Cronies. Amy Rose even ditches him over at [[GuiltyGear Jam]] [[{{Shotacon}} Kuradoberi]]'s restaurant to get rid of him, leaving an annoyed Sonic to go rescue him. Also Nickelback and Theory of a Deadman.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Knuckles and Shadow.
* SeinfeldianConversation
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: And she isn't.
-->Sonic: WHAT?! Amy's... NOT... MY FLOOZY!!!
* ShipTease: For many, many pairings. Knuckles/Rouge is tossed around a lot, Rouge toys and flirts with Tails, Amy thinks too much about losing Sonic to Blaze, Luigi doesn't like how Mario has Peach and hates being reminded he has Daisy to look forward to, [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Captain Falcon]] tries constantly to get on [[{{Metroid}} Samus]]'s good side, [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Edge]] can't seem to get [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Akira]] to notice him, etc. Given the dysfunctional relationships, it seems appropriate that [[VideoGame/MegaManX X and Alia]] are the closest thing to a normal relationship.
* ShockAndAwe: Sailor Jupiter, Ky and Luigi (green fire from MarioKart : Double Dash, and his lightning abilities from MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga)
* ShoutOut / {{Homage}}: So, so, SO many to count, especially from games, anime, and other various sources. Three chapters alone are a tribute to PhantasyStarOnline.
* SkywardScream: Sometimes used seriously, sometimes for hilarity.
* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: Strewn around. The first villain they come across? [[ArchieComics Archie Andrews]], and he was merely just stealing a bank. The second antagonist? [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth.]] That's a major jump up from a geeky ginger teenager. But then when you follow it up after with [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Tomoyo Daidouji]] manipulating the Eggman Empire, the Cronies' bizarro counterparts, and [[GameAndWatch Mr. Game and Watch]] shortly after, you'll think "How the [[CurseCutShort 'EFF']] did Sephiroth lose to Sonic and friends?"
* TheStoic: Averted with Metal Sonic's [[MeltyBlood Mecha-Hisui]] [[NotSoStoic he stole]] [[AIIsACrapshoot and reprogrammed.]]
* SuperMode: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Shadow became Super once again to defeat a really pissed-off Sephiroth.
* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: Tails had a tape recorded and set up in case Eggman betrayed Sonic and friends as expected. It corrected one of Sonic's overreactions, told Sonic and Shadow not to name his {{Ikaruga}} a stupid Cronies-type name, and at three separate times, told Knuckles to stop reading the fox-boy's hidden porn cache and pay attention. Third time around, however...
--> '''Knuckles''': Oh, fuck you, Tails, you're a pre-recorded image!
--> (Suddenly, a tiny laser is emitted from the magazine to Knuckles's head. Knuckles's eyes roll back and he falls to the floor, convulsing.)
--> '''Shadow''': '''Cool!''' I want one of those!
* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: Dr. Eggman, and to a lesser extent, the rest of the Cronies to Tails. They all crash at his house in the Mystic Ruins, eat his food, mess up his place, and occasionally lead to having his precious house destroyed. All while they dub it as their base.
** Theory of a Deadman, to [[Comicbook/DoctorStrange Dormammu.]]
-->'''Dormammu''': "And I '''JUST''' got rid of them, too..."
* TimeParadox: Silver's ill-fated attempt to rid the world of VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 leads Tails to try to explain the concept, with little success.
* TooDumbToLive: Sometimes other characters will have moments where lapse into this, but Knuckles is the biggest contender, followed closely at times by Eggman.
* TookALevelInBadass: Nack the Weasel appears in the most recent chapter, having stepped up from his pathetic cork gun to a HyperspaceArsenal of [[MultiRangedMaster assault rifles, pistols, sniper rifles...]]you get the idea. Amy responds in alarm to the change. Anzu also stepped up from being a hanger-on of Yugi Muto, to being a respected Space Pirate commander.
* TransformationTrinket: Captain Falcon's helmet - in his "normal" form, he's actually a sane, polite gentlemen - but his attacks are useless.
* TransformingMecha: Three components make up the almighty and devastating [[FunWithAcronyms Grand Omelet Deluxe]], aka, [[RecursiveAcronym G.O.D.]]
* TwoLinesNoWaiting: Most chapters will shift away from the focus of the main characters to the other characters and their subplots. Sometimes the plots will coincide, the heroes will meet up, and they'll work together to kick the crap out of the villains.
* UnreliableNarrator: Knuckles and [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Tomo]] became these when they were telling their made-up flashbacks that tried to make themselves look good after a considerable mess-up. Shadow and, surprisingly enough, [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Osaka]] are ''reliable'' narrators when they tell the correct flashbacks.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Just like what happened to [[GuiltyGear Johnny]], Knuckles discovered Bridget's true gender due to a not-so-innocent grope.
--> '''Knuckles''': Must bleach hands until burning!
** Kaname and Farah also got embarrassed when they were charmed by [[OuranHighSchoolHostClub Haruhi]] [[{{Bifauxnen}} Fujioka]].
* UpdatedRerelease: The chapters that are listed on deviantArt are slightly polished up compared to the originals, and have had little modern touches added to them as well. One example is the adding of "Next Time" skits to Cronies TRY 5 and 6. Another is having Tuxedo Mask trying to summon Dormammu instead of Diablo (the net result of summoning Theory of a Deadman is still there).
* VillainExitStageLeft: Pretty much why Sephiroth (as well as Aeris) made their first appearances in this series.
--> '''Sephiroth''': In my world, I was the main antagonist. I died. Just think about this: if you're evil, you don't want to die! So I said to myself, "Fuck it, I'm leaving!"
* [[MonsterOfTheWeek Villain of the Week]] / RoguesGallery: Every episode or two-parter has a central villain of the episode, unless it involves the BigBad.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] during the Moon Kingdom arc during Sailor Mercury's HeelFaceTurn - Shadow nearly kills her for it!
