The Adventures of Dr. McNinja
The Adventures of Dr. McNinja
"continually tops itself"
Knocking out a giant lumberjack in one punch.
Using a soda machine as a makeshift smoke bomb.
Doc's return from death's door in the second part of DARE.
How about this? (This is three pages just linked like this for your convenience.)
This comic and the next six that follow it.
"Yeah. Bite me. Bite my arm. I just ripped your jaw muscles from your skull. Bite me. I severed your spinal cord too. Bite me. Uh huh. Yeah."
Suck it Frodo!
Even the Fox News Weatherman has his own moment.
Punching Dracula in the face.
"I talked to Bruce."
Surfing on a robot clone of Dracula back into the Earth's atmosphere.
A robot death bear being killed by Gordito with a thunderstorm.
Dan McNinja escaping capture by lighting himself on fire.
"We are on eastern pain time, and it is Dan o'clock."
Remember that thing about Dan lighting himself on fire? Yeah. Laughing.
The end of the McNinja Family versus the pirates:
(After Mitzi McNinja has just blown up a pirate ship) Dr. McNinja
: Hey, nice one, Mom, my sword was still on board.
Sean "Dark Smoke Puncher" McNinja
: And probably mad pirate loot, too!
(Dr. McNinja's sword falls back into his hand, while his kid brother Dark Smoke Puncher gets walloped by a falling pirate treasure chest) Mitzi McNinja
: What is your mother's expertise?
: Pickled beets.
: Precisely aimed demolitions.
A mobster with a swordfish through his chest threatens the good Doctor with a gun if he doesn't treat his...."condition." The Doc's response? Casually disarm him without even being SEEN.
Anything that Martin Monster does after this part, which doubles as something of a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming.
Agent Bearclaw's status as an Ascended Extra is solidified with his re-entrance to the series: Taking down Judy and Yoshi single-handedly (literally in Yoshi's case), even if his role seems to be quite short.
The dolphins get one when they save Bearclaw and carry him to an island, and then
shoot him. The titular doctor casually punching out a birdosaur as he walks along. Not one minute after flying a jet through a hurricane, a barrage of anti-air missiles, and birdosaur attacks.
This page is what happens when someone tells the doctor "All Perish Here".
The real Knife Eye Attack.
His eulogy for the Benjamin Franklin clone. What's best is that the comic built up naturally to this point: "Benjamin Franklin II was killed by the very thing he was trying to stop . . . death. He was a, um, clone. And he was not as famous as his first version . . . But he was still a great man. Our city was lucky to host him in his final days so . . . so suck on that Philadelphia."
Epic motorcycle skills.
"What" It says something about this comic when Doctor McNinja smacking a guy in the head with a motorcycle is treated as so commonplace it only gets one panel. And no one bothers mentioning the child-bandito riding a velociraptor fighing Mafiosos on the back of a speeding train.
King Radical delivers his own version via backflipping off his bike and sending it flying at the face of Blizzardbeard the Frost Wizard (really Dark Smoke Puncher).
Dan McNinja can eat poisoned foods at will. He sucks the poison out and stores it in his eyes. So he can shoot it later like a TOAD.
Peg faces for everyone!
Here's a Top 10 made by the author.
Dark Smoke Puncher exploding an air pirate's head with logic.
Mongo the uber-ninja throws a grappling hook onto a passing jumbo jet, and uses that to swing into the cab of an 18-wheeler and throw out the driver. Just....holy crap.
YO HO, MOTHER-HE SAID A BAD WORD!
"Aren't you lucky you live in the only town in the world prepared for a zombie invasion."
: That's awesome! Seriously? There's, like, a zombie defense system?
: (while pulling out a pair of shotguns) Yeah.
It's us. Another gem from that story:
Gordito: Oh noooo! We left Yoshi behind! Are dinosaurs immune to zombies?
Dr. McNinja: Uhmm... YES.
(Cue shot of Yoshi scaring several zombies shitless)
Bah. Franz may be Dangerously Genre Savvy, but Doc? Genre Savvier.
Judy (the gorilla) chasing off an Uber-ninja by wielding a rocket launcher? The greatest mathematical equation ever.
A meta-CMOA. Every few years the Boy Scouts of America have a campout called the National Jamboree. Each council will form a makeshift troop, and everybody gets custom council patches to trade with each other and represent themselves. What does the Potomac Council, home of Cumberland, Maryland use for theirs? Why nothing less than The Good Doctor and his merry staff ◊. These will probably run at a premium come jamboree, and be worth an arm and a leg afterwards.
From Gordito: "Don't."
Doc wasn't understating when he called Gordito the Effing Bad Ass Kid:
Gordito: You left me on the ship. I took out every single member of the crew individually until I was the only one left.
The Alt Text of this strip says it all:
I had a really hard time writing this page until I just decided to draw some dinosaurs with jet packs and guns.
Mitzi can taste your lies..
Doc taps his own personal Theme Music Powerup by humming the Ghostbusters theme. Then, "I AIN'T AFRAID OF NO GHOSTS!"
And since that wasn't enough awesome, the grand finale reminds us why you don't screw with a highly-trained ninja.
Probably commonplace, given all the Crazy Awesome scattered through the comic, but... the Doctor, armed to the teeth, takes on an army. He's a ninja. So are they. It is awesome.
"Would you believe you've got the wrong guy?" "No." "Pity. It's true."
In the Bad Future, Gordito mentions that Dan and Mitzi McNinja went out "spectacularly". He wasn't ◊ kidding.
The Doc brings in some old 'friends' to help deal with the dinosaur problem.
The Nasaghast is back with a vengeance. And it's killing the second horrorsaurus with a vengeance.
Yoshi! The McNinja reunion tour continues. First part of his plan was bringing back the Paul Bunyan disease patients to fight the dinosaurs. The second part? As if that wasn't cool enough, both McNinjas pull off an Calling upon Dracula to break the shield holding the Ultimate Diplomat with his Moon Laser. At first it looks like it isn't working, but then... Unflinching Stand.
"Hey Sean! It's me! Your brother! I'm alive!... While we're at it that spoilered bit is another great Whatcha doin?" Unflinching Walk.
The Ultimate Diplomat pulls one off with his very first sentence.
"I don't believe in mimes!
Dr. McLuchador's methods of medicine.
Dan McNinja has no time for your delicate procedures.
Dark Smoke Puncher knows how to deal with eldritch horrors.
Genuine Egyptian Mummy who can easily curse highly-skilled ninja? Not a problem for KING RADICAL.
Two words, DUBSTEP. QUARTET. Yes, King Radical weaponized dubstep.
Although it's just be an April Fools joke, but this ◊ page is probably the best one ever. Even the author admits on the next page's alt text that he wish it were canon.
Behold! HOUSE BOT
