-->--A reader, commenting on the plot of the comic.

[[http://unichat.cfw.me Unichat]] is a text-based {{webcomic}} about a group of people who communicate on a chat program called Unichat (with the entire comic consisting of their fictional chat logs). It is set in the near future, starting in the year 2089 and featuring a lunar colony where the character Sonja (alias [=SonjaOfTheMoon=]) lives. The comic is recently "back from the metaphorical grave" after more than a year of being an OrphanedSeries.

----

Unichat provides examples of:

* AerithAndBob: Variant. The names of characters revealed are quite mundane, but since most characters are only known by their chat names, very few of them sound as such.
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: Those who have absolute control over warp energy are described as basically having become gods.
* CardCarryingVillain: The Space Pirates.
* CerebusSyndrome: [[http://unichat.cfw.me/comics/21 This page]] is even ''titled'' "Cerebus".
* TheChessmaster: In what is at ''least'' a three-way battle, between Admiral Pancake, [=OITHEOI=], and [=GodsOfOlympus=], with other possibles such as [[spoiler: meta's dad]].
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: What some of the characters initially appear as. However, in most cases, [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight what they say has basis in fact]]...
* ColorCodedCharacters: Each character has their own chat color.
* DamselOutOfDistress: Sonja, holding the MacGuffin, knows how to use it, so when her captors [[TooDumbToLive give her an opening]], she takes it.
* EvilCounterpart: Though not strictly evil, multiple characters tend to have parallels to the four kids.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Sonja's username is [=SonjaOfTheMoon=], and she lives on the moon.
* InstantAIJustAddWater: The first sufficiently complicated [[spoiler:@hena program]] becomes an AI.
* KudzuPlot: Admiral Pancake, [=GodsOfOlympus=], @hena, [[spoiler:meta's dad]], [=OITHEOI=], and probably [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters other factions]] all have their own goals and objectives.
* LeetLingo: sentientconspirator talks in an ''[[UpToEleven extreme]]'' version of this.
* NarrativeProfanityFilter: The chat client has a filter. Often used for jokes.
* NoNameGiven: Most of the characters. [=EntropicPhantom=] and pwnz0rz are known to be named Alex and Luke respectively, and [=SonjaOfTheMoon=]'s name is in fact Sonja, but otherwise, no one's name is known. [[spoiler:meta's dad]] takes this a step further by not even having a ''username''.
* OurGraphicsWillSuckInTheFuture: Despite the comic being set in the year 2089, text-based chat is still used... Even between space ships.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Averted--Though they may appear not to be active, Admiral Pancake's pirate conspirators are actively working to fulfill his agenda.
* RealityWarper: Anyone who can control warp energy. Some can do this purely mentally; others rely on a [[LanguageOfMagic programming language]], which is harder to use but more powerful.
* RunningGag: ...AND STAB UNICHAT'S FILTER IN THE CENSORED!
* SpacePirates: Lead by a man known only by his Unichat handle "Admiral Pancake". They were seen attacking a shuttlecraft carrying Sonja's family when they were going to Earth for shore leave.
* StrangeSyntaxSpeaker: stealthyconspirator uses semicolons in place of most punctuation, except at the end of a message.
* ThemeNaming: The pirate [[EvilMinions underlings]] use Unichat handles consisting of a word that starts with "s" and "conspirator". This convention came from the author's friend posting a comment as "silentconspirator" [[WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants (as did the entire idea of having the underlings as full characters)]].
* ThirtyGambitPileup: At least three warring factions exist, with multiple other agendas involved.
* TrueCompanions: The four kids, Entropic, Sonja, pwnz0rz, and meta.
* VerbalTic: @hena, using Sonja's account, compulsively uses [[NoIndoorVoice ALL CAPS]] and spams the letter "G".
* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants
* WebcomicTime: Averted - There are time-stamps on all comics after a certain point.
* WeirdnessCensor: On occasion, usually related to the pirates.
* WhatTheHellHero: After [[spoiler: Sonja was thought dead]], [=EntropicPhantom=] and pwnz0rz call out [[MeaningfulName GodsOfOlympus]] on his uncaring attitude.
