This one's for ''Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group'' but the stuff below it until the line-break is about ''Emazh In''.
* UnstoppableRage: Averted with Treemasters; subverted with other characters. Usually, when someone becomes enraged in battle over a lost relative or friend, they tend to lose horribly, as they fight without thinking rationally. This goes in hand with one of the story's goals being to avert HardWorkHardlyWorks. In the case of Treemasters, their powers are somewhat controlled by emotion ''in the sense that'' complete loss of composure results in roots, branches, and vines growing around the Treemaster out of their control and immobilizing them until they manage to calm down. Anger here and there is fine, but a total berserk rage to the point of less clear thought is something Treemasters try to avoid.

* PrecisionFStrike:
** Done in the game's bad ending route. ''Emazh In'' otherwise doesn't even have an "ass" or a "damn." (It ''does'' have a couple of "hells," in the form of comparing half of the red regions to a FireAndBrimstoneHell.) [[spoiler:But then it drops the big guns when you challenge Izjjen. When '''she''' of all people drops "There's only one problem with this plan. You see... '''I really fucking hate Ninthee,'''" then you ''know'' you're going to be in for a real fight.]]
** That's the only swear ''in-game'', but there is an additional one in the game's soundtrack: [[spoiler:the regular theme for Infinity Amusement Park is just "Welcome to Infinity Amusement Park." Ninthee's boss theme, however, is "Welcome to Infinity Amusement Park... ''MOTHERFUCKERS!''" Not too coincidentally, both F-strikes are tied to IAP (it's where the Izjjen fight starts, and it's where the entire Ninthee battle takes place).]]

[[folder:Shout Out]]

* A few to ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'':
** If you end up Challenging Izjjen, [[spoiler:her attacks and general fighting style are based on the Bloat, but turned Up to Eleven. Also, rather than the normal sound used for lasers, it plays a sound effect closer-but-not-identical to the familiar "Brimstone" laser. She also has the same "diagonally-moving objects bounce around the arena for the entire fight" gimmick, except there's four of them, and each of them fires a "Brimstone" laser if Olivia flies too close to them.]]

* The plot of the "dark" counterparts to the Flame/Freeze duo is that, rather than being best of friends [[spoiler:and Lhaurflame being an overly-apologetic and defensive atoner for Lhaurfreeze]], the two ''here'' are actively competing tourist-trappers. Unlike almost every other store in the game, their merchandice is very obviously cheap -- the outfits are all just generic white shirts with something badly scribbled in pen on them.

* The player has the option to have Olivia tell Maria that [[BlatantLies Dan is an Emazh.]] Maria knows that this is a lie ''for sure'' (the rest of them, she doesn't count as "100% proof") because Dan wears an outfit that covers his butt.

!! Infinity Amusement Park

* Ninthee's secret room is mostly just an unsettling StalkerShrine, but there ''is'' one little self-jab at [=DeepWater=]'s "prototype" to the game, if you read a certain door-stopping book.
-->"This is just fan fiction. Someone (Ninthee) apparently thought it would be a good idea to take a one-time villain, make up all these long-lost relatives for her, and have them all [[SpotlightStealingSquad hijack the spotlight to the point where the original main characters are reduced to just cliffnotes.]] Also, what seems like a simple lesson about your social life from the episode is bloated in to some overly-analytical essay on how mankind and technology interact.\\
"You cannot think of any way that this would be a good idea. Even turning it in to an original story seems kinda dumb at this point. You don't find yourself liking any of these new characters, anyway."

* Normally, Lilith's unusual fixation on squeaky toys is played for drama a bit. But the game crosses the line twice when you're "stealthing" around and end up triggering the Challenge early by stepping on one of them. Olivia's OhCrap reaction sells it; even ''Ninthee'' looks a bit worried if you have her in your party.
** It's implied that she won a good percentage of them from the Infinity Amusement Park, and that Ninthee stopped offering anything that squeaks as a prize not just because she developed a way to mass-produce a variety of video games for prizes instead, but because she was getting concerned of Lilith's aggressive plays whenever she visited IAP. Really kind of goes to show that, for however AxCrazy Lilith and Ninthee are, they're pretty good friends to one-another. (Ironically, unlike [[FanFic/RunGifocalypse Eve]] and [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls .GIFfany]], their prototype and inspiration respectively.)
** For a less-intentional one, it's hard to take Lilith's big speech about existence, tradition, and hate seriously when she doing so holding out an adorable looking blue frog toy to the camera and squeaking it. It makes her quickly going from "cold and emotionless" to "pissed the hell off" seem more goofy, than anything.


[[folder:"Normal Route" Part 3 (Four Extremes -- Sloeth Core)]]

!! Part 3 Intro

* Olivia seems to be just a tiny bit GenreSavvy -- after the Lilith fight, the second absolutely ''major'' boss in the game, she wonders if everything has gotten harder and is now filled with ''much'' stronger enemies, like the good ol' fourteen zones were after beating Ninthee.

!! The Bright Extremes

!! The Dark Extremes

!! The Light Extremes

!! The Dull Extremes

!! Sloeth Core

* Fatephinal introduces herself by saying that the place was originally called "Slowdeath Core," but felt that it wasn't that subtle. So she just dropped the fourth, fifth, and seventh letters and called it a day.
** Shortly after that, she invites the humans, Olivia, and Olivia's "Band" for a glass of coffee (she hates tea). Keep in mind that Fatephinal is supposed to be an extremely powerful Emazh that wants to start a war on humanity, is somewhat symbolically linked to Satan, and is a SealedEvilInACan; you've spent the last part of the game fighting five to eight bosses that are tough on their own right and are afraid of her. Yeah, Fatephinal is ''definitely'' AffablyEvil.
* If you've been to Haria in Part 1 (or, just before going to Sloeth Core, but mainly in Part 1 where Pre-Hardmode Haria is actually threatening to the player) and have Bethany in your party, Fatephinal will gladly and casually confess to being that one unexplained "powerful spirit"/ghost in Bethany's office area. Not only is this a parody of RealAllAlong, it serves as a pretty lengthy BrickJoke.


[[folder:"Normal Route" Part 4 (Endgame: Labostoep Revisited -- Kristie battle)]]

!! Hardmode Labostoep

* To prevent a knowledgeable player from just heading in to Labostoep right before fighting Fatephinal, breezing through what's basically pre-Hardmode enemies there, and setting up a warp point at the very end to effectively skip "Hardmode Labostoep" (as, unlike every other area in the game, Labostoep does not increase in difficulty after beating Ninthee; it increases after beating ''Fatephinal''), warp points involving Labosteop are deleted as soon as the player wins the Challenge against Fatephinal. If the game needs to do that in the run, Olivia and Dan will both look ''very'' annoyed upon getting the news.

!! Galactic Core

* Kristie seems extremely intimidating at first, even after the reveal that [[spoiler:she's not really the expected god-like figure you've been led to believe all game and instead just wants to not have any pressure of her powers]]... then she turns around, revealing that her outfit just cuts off for the back half. She walks around with her ''enormous'' butt out for everyone to see.


[[folder:"Friendship Route" (All Four Parts)]]

!! "Rainbow Ring" Regions

* While most of the characters you befriend kind of pack their bags and move off to Dekstop [[spoiler:and later, Infinity Amusement Park]]. Even the "hijackers" kind of do this. The one place that isn't ''completely'' empty, however, is Izjjen's tiny "office" that's just a desk out in the middle of the cave entrance. She's still there, showing little to no interest in how she's technically the only sapient life on the satelite if you leave.

!! Infinity Amusement Park

* The fact that [[spoiler:Izjjen is pretty much one of the hardest bosses in the entire game, yet does not at all seem to be aware of that.]] She keeps a casual tone through the entire fight. Heck, even the way you begin is an anti-climax, and you can even choose to just say "no" to her Challenge offer and walk right past her, although doing so will kick you out of the route if you decline Ninthee's demand to go back.
* Late in to the [[spoiler:Izjjen]] fight, she starts to pity you and thinks it would be easier if she telegraphed her attacks "more clearly" by outright telling you what attack she's going to do next. [[spoiler:Not only does this make things ''worse'' in that the player would likely be distracted reading her text, since she only says the attacks while she's fighting you, but she's effectively kicking your ass despite you knowing her move a few seconds in advance.]]
* Ninthee's response to bailing out of the path at the absolute last second by [[spoiler:turning down her offer and Challenging her.]] She gives this over-the-top offended look and tries ''pretty hard'' not to just break down swearing like a teenager. It almost makes [[spoiler:winning the Challenge against Izjjen]] worth it. ''[[BonusBoss Almost.]]''
** [[spoiler:Izjjen slowly giving up on being the final Emazh who doesn't roll along with Ninthee's plan to basically trap the humans she wants in her amusement park seems a bit bleak, especially considering how you're effectively the reason why, but it becomes less bleak if you decide ''not'' to follow through with that. Everyone reacts strongly to you turning down Ninthee at the last second, ]]

!! Post-IAP

* All members across the (for context, pretty dang alien-feeling even by the [[WidgetSeries standards of this game]]) Four Extremes seem utterly puzzled by your and Ninthee's ThePowerOfFriendship approach. What was Part 3 in the normal path becomes a massive anti-climax that's solved in less than five minutes if you


-->"I give, I give! I quit. Okay, ow. Yeah, I was completely expecting that. Look... I was already pushing myself farther than recommended for Emazhes, anyway. So I guess I should just give in and, uh, skip straight to joining in your Band? Yeah...\\
"Hey, Olivia. I'm not gonna say 'no' anymore. I'm gonna trust your judgement. But, I just want to say one thing. Whatever you do... whatever direction you go... just... don't turn in to me, okay?\\
"Oh, forget it.\\
"So, boss, what do you want to do now?"

* AffablyEvil: She basically wants to see humanity crumble, and her opinion on Emazhkind isn't really that positive either. Despite this, going purely by everyone pre-character development, she's among the nicest characters in the entire game. She offers


[[folder:"What are you talking about?"]]

* UnexpectedCharacter: GPF has been doing this more and more often, as part of his TrollingCreator status and to fit in with the general tone of a given story:
** House, MD showing up at the last second in ''Sweet Jade and Hella John'', [[spoiler:also confirming that the ''Dream House'' [=SBIGlet=] takes place in Multiverse B.]] This is still a surprise even though Fan wrote a ''[=SBIGlet=]'' where House, and others, are in.
** The one of the major villains of ''ACT 5 VS ACT 6'' is WesternAnimation/AssyMcGee. Great Pikmin Fan had, prior to publishing that story, never even so much as spoke a ''word'' of the show. It's justified in that he came out of Caliborn's attempt at a multiversal portal that was supposed to bring together a bunch of Cartoon Network villains, before a switch was accidentally flipped and several [adult swim] sociopaths came out. Assy being one of them, was inexplicably the strongest, and hijacked the portal so that it caused an ass-themed apocalypse that takes off of Weirdmageddon. In other words, Assy was an unexpected out-of-the-world threat even in-universe. Since [=A5VA6=] was written before the final part of Weirdmageddon came out, Fan did his own sort of GeckoEnding for that, where [[spoiler:Doc Brown (he showed up in the prior story) drives the kids and trolls ''straight'' to the portal leading to Assy's dimension, and Peter Griffin and Plank suddenly hijack the plot at the last second and act as the true Big Bads]].
** '''The Jonas Brothers''' randomly show up near the end of ''KIDS FIGHT THE ZOMBIES'', a one-off ''SBIG'' story, to help Jade, Rose, Dave, Roxy, and Jane fight against [[BigBad Rick Abs]] and [[AdaptationalVillainy an evil mad scientist Karkat Vantas.]]
** Absolutely nobody going in blind has predicted that [[spoiler:Kyu from ''[=HuniePop=]'']] would not only show up in both ''naruto the guy with the ninja'' and ''Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage'', [[spoiler:but she also turns out to be extremely important in the former and acts as a Sans expy that, despite having "low stats," manages to drive Naruto in to frustration.]]
** ''Housestuck: The Split'' finally reveals what the fic's portrayal of Mars was like, something raised back in ''FanFic/HecksingUlumateCrconikals'' over six years ago and never addressed in either ''Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals'' or ''Hecksing: The Dawn'' despite said fics being intended to expand the world of HUC a bit (which they do, ''for Earth''). And it's like the Mars from ''VideoGame/LesbianSpiderQueensOfMars''. And the Spider Queen and Tarantua Queen play major roles in the plot, hunting down Carl [[spoiler:as he's a wanted fugitive]]. There is absolutely no foreshadowing of this whatsoever, and the only other fic they have appeared in so far by this guy is ''Bobby Hill Gets Hit by a Car'', which intentionally throws in so much crossover that it's kind of easy to forget they're there most of the time. ''Most'' of the time.
** Being a massive crossover, ''Bobby Hill Gets Hit by a Car'' has several. What? You thought GPF was going to stick to mainstream material and things that have large fan fic followings? It's intentionally supposed to be a wild ride.
*** Fan said that he deliberately thumbed through ecchi shows or adult visual novels just to make their characters pop up and have major crossover chapters clash heavily with things they are featured near. We could have serious work, serious work, then suddenly an ecchi series that GPF has ''never'' mentioned before ''anywhere'', with little to nothing implying that he knows about it.
*** Same goes for relatively obscure stuff. When [[VideoGame/MightyFlipChamps Alta]] showed up as a semi-major character no less, the author commented that he thought few people would expect her because they wouldn't even know who she was in the first place.
*** Even series he said he openly did not like, he threw in anyway, and actually portrayed the characters decently rather than ''blatantly'' just bashing the ones he wasn't fond of.
*** While GPF had hinted that his own stories will be crossed over (but never through full chapters; he doesn't want his own content to overtake the various fandoms, as he feels that would be the exact wrong kind of SpotlightStealingCrossover), nobody expected his deliberately sloppy ''Unviewable Panties of Ishiko-Chan'' to be the '''first''' on that list. [Probably won't do the following:] Much less is ''this'' bombshell:
---->'''Hanako:''' Margaret! Once we caught up with you, you have a lot of explaining to do! More than I usual exposit, being the exposition member of the Demon Underground.\\
'''Geraldine:''' Who? [[spoiler:I keep telling everybody. Her name is Brenda.]]\\
'''Young Woman:''' [[spoiler:No, her name is Margaret.]]\\
'''Hanako:''' [[spoiler:Yes! Yes it is! Margaret, of the Demon Underground! Where the hell have you been?]]\\
[[spoiler:'''Brenda/Margaret:''' ''Shit.'']]
*** Perhaps one of the biggest of them all, which is an accomplishment: [[spoiler:Sheldin and Lenard. No, not Sheldon and Leonard from ''Big Bang Theory''. Or their genderbent counterparts that were hinted at back in the first arc and revealed in the fourth. But the Stylistic Suck comic GPF did of ''Big Bang Theory'' a ''long'' time ago back around 2012. There's a reason why he revived it before starting -- turns out that, ''to an extent'', ''Tock About Fysicks'' is actually canon to BHGHBAC, even if it's not canon with most of the other ''SBIG'' installments.]]


Possible. Might not even break these in to "acts," but the works that the "Sages" are from (''Steven Universe'', ''Hellsing'', ''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann'', ''The Big Bang Theory'', and ''Perfect Hair Forever''; ''King of the Hill'' is the odd one out and the fight against Lucky will act as the sixth "checkpoint") will still be major "checkpoints."

Everything from Intermission 1 to Act 3 (Act 1) is based on the old ''Sweet Jade and Hella John''[='=]s plot progression, minus the subacts and subintermissions of the first intermission: First, a ''Mario''-themed Intermission in some way. Act 2 is divided in to three subacts where one is light but ends on a "dark" twist, Intermission 1 is a group narration to tie up ends before they go out of control, the second subact continues the dark twist set up in [=A2A1=] and ending with the downfall of several kinda-major villain, Intermission 2 is based on Hell loosely, and the third subact is the battle with the leading figure behind the twist thing and pretty short. Oh, and Act 3 kinda starts out picking where Act 2 left an end of fighting another villain, but by 3-2 things split off from there.
* Act 1: "Get Your Feet Wet" (This is the only "act" where the crossovers have a theme, in this case, "internet-popular," culminating in ''Steven Universe'' as it's the only one with a Sage)
** (Intro)
** (Eve, but I'm not sure if I'll do full ''Binding of Isaac'' just yet, since it doesn't really fit with the "big internet fandom" theme)
** (''Homestuck'')
** (FNAF?)
** (''Cuphead''?)
** '''(''Steven Universe'')'''
* Intermission 1: "Two Princesses, a Mayor, and Whatever the Hell Rosalina is " (Intermissions are planned to only be single chapters, and won't be divided in to what worlds are being visited.)
* Act 2:
** Act 2 Act 1: "This is a Terrible Home"
** Act 2 Intermission 1: "Lawyer Guy Lawyers You"
** Act 2 Act 2: "Sure is Dark in Here..."
** Act 2 Intermission 2: "What's 'the Heck?'"
** Act 2 Act 3: "Souldown Showdown"
*** '''(''Hellsing'')'''
* Intermission 2: "Eve's Meal Fun" (Really short, just a joke chapter, unlike the prior intermissions)
* Act 3:
** Act 3 Act 1: "Well, Isn't This Art?"
** Act 3 Intermission: "Nobody Rejects!"
** Act 3 Act 2: "Spin On"
*** '''(''Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann'')''' -- Like the last subact of Act 2, this consists entirely of the final showdown and the Sage-related battle.
* Act 4: "Buckle Up; this is Gonna be Long Ride"
** [Lots of other stuff]
** '''(''Big Bang Theory'')'''
* Intermission 3:
** Intermission 3 Act 1: "Blame Costco" (All of these are really short, and just getting to Lucky and stuff. Might move between Act 5 and Act 6, since 6 is supposed to be really short.)
** Intermission 3 Intermission 1: "Back to Our Gang, but Briefly"
** Intermission 3 Act 2: "Not Mudvin"
** Intermission 3 Intermission 2: "Exes and Ohs"
*** (''Scott Pilgrim'')
*** (''Pikmin'')
** Intermission 3 Act 3: "Skill, Not Luck"
** Intermission 3 Intermission 3: "Let's Count to Four. Er, Five" (Thinking of having its only chapter just burn through several different subacts and subintermissions, like I thought [S] GAME OVER was gonna do when it first switched to "Act 6 Act 6 Intermission 3")
* Act 5: "Sheol and Cathedral"
** [Lots of works. This is long as hell.]
** '''(''Perfect Hair Forever'')'''
* Act 6: "Finally"
** '''(Just ''King of the Hill'', sorta)'''
** End of Act 6: "Fucking Hell, Lucky. Really?"
* Act 7: "REMEMBER ME, HANK?!"
* Post-Story: Misc crossover junk, "filler," this is pretty much after the main story ends and I'm gonna keep it going until I lose interest.


Context for the cameo: Scott and Ramona actually go to Roxie's art gallery where there's a ton of other asshole artists there. Leona's there too, disguised in painting form. Dian and later, Bubbles and Sonia, pull her away from attacking Scott.



[[folder:Rick Abs]]

-->First appearance: ''KIDS FIGHT THE ZOMBIES''
-->Appears in: ''KIDS FIGHT THE ZOMBIES'', ''Housestuck: The Split'',

A douchebag surfer with an unhealthy fixation on Jade.

* ColorCodedCharacters: Yellow, as it's the last "bright major color" not used by any of the human characters. Obviously, this would make his text hard to read -- and once GPF revealed his text color as something that's deliberately a dull tone of yellow and thus it would blend in with MS Paint Adventures' default background, that is exactly the case. Which is exactly why Fan chose that -- Rick's words are meant to be a pain in the ass to even ''look at''.
* DemotedToExtra: [[WordOfGod Great Pikmin Fan]] said that he was planned to show up in other, relatively more serious ''Homestuck'' Crack Fics that were not intentionally poorly written as an antagonistic foil to all eight of the human Sburb players. However,
* NightmareFace: Good ''God''. Not only does he have a near-permanent SlasherSmile once his true self is revealed, but remember Grimdarkness? According to the logic of ''KIDS FIGHT THE ZOMBIES'', there's three levels of it. Rose just went through the first in canon. Rick has two more: the second is just with spiky purple hair, but the ''third'' involves half of his face melting to skull.
* ParodySue: In a more blatant, yet also antagonist, manner compared to Carl. He's good at a lot of things and is an obvious parody of ''Homestuck'' self-insert fan characters to a degree, except he's obviously evil and obsessed with Jade.
* {{Yandere}}: He usually starts out seemingly friendly, and


[[folder:Set to be out in January, maybe]]

!! This story provides examples of:

* ArtifactTitle: Managed to be one thanks to WhatCouldHaveBeen. One of the earliest prototypes for this story was going to be something completely different: a deliberate bizarre high school-set story called ''Ordinary High School'', with the title being a [[BlatantLies Blatant Lie.]] There, the premise was about a high school where weird shit happened, most students were obsessive and clingy, and even killed one-another -- yet always respawned shortly after. He considered moving the setting to a university level, then ditched the entire school setting completely and had it focused on people in their early twenties with jobs training to fight evil. The whole world, not just the area with the "students," became weird, so the fish out of water aspect of the main character was dropped. Without that, the contrast of their world to ours seemed less off, so the title doesn't make much sense. And, since it's not in one single school setting, the new name was picked to be something more generic. The "Ordinarily" is still a joking lie, and "United" refers to both the Unitias and the relationship between Carlson and Stella.
* CreepyGood: The Unitias are an ocean (literally infinite in the Unit-verse, but they are limited in how many of them can become physical at a given moment in time, even if that number is slowly growing) of naked women with razor-sharp claws and sharp teeth, that admit to loving the taste of blood. They're also surprisingly good people and amazingly friendly, although Unitia Origin can be a bit stubborn.
* {{Expy}}: As with GPF's other "major" original story projects released roughly around the same time, few of the main characters are that original, but several of the side characters are:
** One of the many inspirations is [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls "Soos and the Real Girl,"]] and it really shows with three key characters: Stella is like Melody in being a heavy-build human BadassNormal that hates adulthood and responsibility (except this is her character arc, learning how to deal with growing up emotionally, [[spoiler:and eventually becoming the C.E.O. of Stelkazh]]); while the Unitias as a whole are inversions of [=.GIFfany=] in that they appear like creepy monster ''immediately'' and with zero subtlety, but are actually friendly and help get Carlson ''out'' of a bad relationship (in this case, with Yuullieke, who isn't really like any ''Gravity Falls'' character). Carlson himself could be described as a very odd blend of an adult Dipper and Soos, if they were an ExtremeDoormat with [[TheAce ridiculous amounts of talent.]] On that note, the Inventor is a hell of a lot like Gideon, in being a deconstruction of the [[EntitledToHaveYou "nice guy"]] who is an all-powerful stalker creep.
** The Unitias are admitted to be based on a large mix of ShamelessFanserviceGirl[=s=], minus traits about them Fan doesn't like (such as them not being naked. The Unitias are literally nude the whole story). But he says that their general design had a lot of help from [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Felicia.]]
** Most of the [=HRTs=] take their designs and/or personalities from somewhere:
*** Like Xunter but with animal people rather than anime swordsmen, HRT-1 is Fan's general idea of a stereotypical "young male tween" appeal hero, except he got his hammyness from [[ComicBook/ScottPilgrim Matthew Patel.]] Fan even ''strongly'' considered having HRT-1 introduce himself in a very similar manner to Patel, but he decided instead to put that particular ShoutOut in ''Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group'' instead.
*** HRT-4 is a recycling of an earlier character idea from ''SBIG'' (not ''Steve''; the series that tries to pull off SoBadItsGood on purpose), who also went by "DEATH MECHA" in all caps. [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Also, his dialect is inspired by Tommy Wiseau.]]
*** HRT-5 is inspired by the [[VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey Ruined Dragon.]]
*** HRT-6 doesn't have any specific 1:1 counterpart (neither does -7), but Fan says that [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Latula Pyrope]] played a good part in
* FirstEpisodeSpoiler: Notice that there's a reason why the description says that no spoilers for Chapter 1 will be marked at all. The first chapter drops plenty:
** Carlson gets out of his toxic relationship with Yuullieke near the end, and he does it because it's what the Unitias suggested was best for him.
** "HRT-1" is not a joke villain. In fact, he's the first person since Carlson hit his significant "14.5th birthday" that can ''successfully'' land a good hit on him. Also, he's not evil; he's just brainwashed, and once Carlson takes off the bug that's been injecting an AI-altering virus in him, he immediately panics about HRT-8 being some big, scary figure before a giant hand (HRT-8's) pulls him in through a similar-looking three-dimensional portal as what the Unitias used.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: [[spoiler:This is how both Yuullieke and the Inventor die, the story's two most prominent villains.]]
* HotterAndSexier: Great Pikmin Fan had already started becoming significantly more bold starting around late 2015 with ''FanFic/RunGifocalypse'' slowly upping its fanservice content (starting out with a beginning family-friendly enough to almost pass for being on Disney itself, and ending with [[spoiler:the story openly describing [=.GIFfany=]'s bare chest, Fan claiming this still gets away with a "T" rating because it's the only time female nipples are mentioned directly and it's in a case that isn't really sexualized]]), but this puts almost everything else he wrote to absolute shame. The ''first chapter'' alone introduces EthicalSlut Stella as she eventually does a one-time guy (Ritch), with a ''somewhat'' intense description of their lovemaking after the Unitia fight. And then there's the Unitias themselves, who spend the entire story and indeed their whole lives completely butt-naked (except for Origin, who wears spats most of the time and was directed by the Inventor to try out maid outfits before coming to the conclusion that she ''really'' did not like clothing), and draw attention to their enormous asses.
* LargeHam:
** Every single one of the [=HRTs=] when under the effects of the Inventor's mind controlling bug. HRT-1 takes the cake, as he ''specifically'' rehearses his opening speech to Carlson all Saturday and the following Sunday when he fails to find him.
* NotSoStoic:
** Part of Carlson's character arc is that he's been through so much shit that he just builds a stoic shell as he tries dealing with it all. Once he gets to relaxing a bit without Yuullieke in his life, he slowly begins to let that fall, and it turns out he's actually quite the goofy guy.
** Unitia Origin is a darker example. She
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: The latter HRT units, specifically -6 and -7, almost seem completely human. A very obvious trend when looking at the HRT series in numberical order is that, the further along they go, the more organic they seem. HRT-1 is all gray and has a number of obvious metal plating spots. By HRT-4, Inventor took the time to give a bigger color range. By -5, he simulated scales and made a realistic-looking giant dragon. And by -6 and -7, he made humanoids ''considerably'' more realistic than HRT-1. HRT-9/Unitia Origin was also originally indistringuishable from a human, and even after she gave herself exaggerated proportions to look a little more like some kind of horror movie monster, she still definitely does not look like a robot despite technically being one.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: It's easier to list the characters who ''aren't'' confirmed to have no problem being exposed. Not even simply wearing an outfit in most of their appearances can rule someone out, as seen with Yuullieke's comfort in Chapter 3.
** The Unitias are the most obvious examples. Origin walks around in nothing but tight bike shorts, and that's mainly because her crotch could potentially act as a very mild BrownNote to people inexperienced with dealing with nudity. Her infinite creation of Unitias, on the other hand, run around completely naked at all times -- the narrative flat-out states on their introduction that there was never a point where any of ''them'' wore clothing, and there never will be (although Origin did wear clothes in the past back when she followed the Inventor, and hated it). Unlike most examples, they do not become more shy of this as they develop feelings towards the leads.
** Stella always leans towards the bare minimum dress code for a given situation, and since nudity is legal in several places of the story, this amounts to her casually walking around butt-naked herself some times. Other times, she tries to get around regulations with see-through clothing. There is never a point in the story where she's embarassed at anything -- Carlson even jokingly asks her if it's possible for her to feel embarassment. She has to think for a while before she answers with "No...?"
** Carlson himself has a wardrobe mostly limited to a pair of swim trunks and... two heavy suits (one of armor, another a space suit), but he only wears them as a handicap because he thinks fighting is even ''more'' effortless without them. He only even has the shorts on in the first place because they "feel soft enough to be more comfortable," and to minimize GroinAttack risk. When HRT-1 manages to induce ClothingDamage on him, he's more surprised at the fact that -1 even hit him at all than he is about him being nearly naked.
** Kameel Kick does not mind wandering around in a skirt that completely flips over most of the time. Ironically, she's the only main character never seen completely naked in ''Ordinarily'' (that would have to wait for ''Extraordinarily''), though she has been in her underwear in her own home a lot when Carlson is around, and does not care even though her relationship with Carlson is strictly platonic.
** Yuullieke, despite not looking like it at first and being based off of the type of characters who normally do not fit this trope. She gives a FullFrontalAssault in Chapter 3 as she attacks Carlson right after she took a shower, not bothering to get dressed. She does not care that the people in the restaurant see her naked. And frankly, nobody at the restaurant cares that some nude person just tore through the roof with a knife in hand demanding to take down some guy in gold swim trunks, implying that this is ''another'' common sight in the story's world. (Which a FullyBackgroundEvent in the spinoff would imply further.)
** Even the Inventor completely doesn't mind being seen naked, but his unhealthy build (to the point where someone unfamiliar with the series could be told he's some sort of zombie and believe it) and his horrible stalker attitude make him FanDisservice.
* ToiletHumor:
** Justified example. One of the early [=HRTs=] is designed to resemble an overweight, naked man that's also attatched to a toilet. Unlike the other [=HRTs=], Carlson completely curb-stomps him and his fight is a GilliganCut. The reasoning for this is to reflect on how the [=HRTs=] units were designed early in the Inventor's life (when he was even more immature; he's still pretty childish as an adult), and HRT-3 was during a phrase where he really liked poop jokes.
** Stella apparently has a bad habit of discussing toilet-related matters, although she only does this on-screen once and notes that she's trying to fight against it. That one time is after Carlson hears her screaming from the bathroom:
--->'''Carlson:''' What is it?! Is it HRT-5?!\\
'''Stella:''' No, it's...\\
'''Stella:''' You know how when you're on the toilet dropping bombs, and some water splashes up back to your ass?\\
'''Carlson:''' ...''(Confused)'' No?\\
'''Stella:''' You don't? Wow, you really ''are'' the luckiest man in the world.
* YouAreNumberSix: The [=HRTs=] each go by two names that they switch around pretty often: a "title" usually relating to their powers, and their HRT-# name. They flip them around fairly evenly, but Fan tends to gravitate towards using the HRT number term to describe them. The exception is Unitia Origin, who is not called HRT-9 very often, reflecting her own desire to break apart from the Inventor way before the others did, and the brainwashed [=HRTs=] hating her because of that.

!! ''Extraordinarily United''

* LighterAndSofter: ''Ordinarily'' covered topics such as abusive relationships and stalkers, and the Unitias were made to really push the "creepy" in "CreepyGood." Also, the heroes constantly get in to misfortune until right around the end, to the point where they rarely stay in one comfortable living place for long. In ''Extraordinarily'', the Unitias do not speak as morbidly, the villains are a lot more harmless, and the protagonists actually get to '''relax.'''
