Penny, Pamela, Momoko. There! After just keeping it at Eve, Ash, Mike, Rain, "strong possibly-horse themed one" (currently named Marie), Karla, and Lilith, I've finally came up with three new party members just from having a "test group" that you get at the first inn/"hotel." Penny's name is a pun because you get her from paying her (although the currency in Omega is Tickets). Pamela challenges you to an easy fight. Momoko right now asks for just one copy of the basic healing item but that might change — basically, they and Rain (Rain is recruited outside of the inn) are your "tutorial" for the jist of how recruiting party members would "mainly" work. There are several you just flat-out pay, there are some that you either have to fight or go fight something, and some will join you if you exchange items. Maybe the next two hotels should have one of each of those, just as "quick access to grab more people," but they get more complex. The Ticket-based one in Platform Mountain asks you for way more than just twenty, the fighter hits harder, etc. I definitely want a multi-armed party member that, at a glance, could probably be confused for an adult Monoko minus the fucked up face and stomach-vortex, but I'm not sure if I want Momoko to be that or just a generic food lover. Also I want a character that's like Enzo in that they're the comic relief and specifically mostly just appears for the very beginning and the very end. It's like "Okay, Eve has this one buddy before going on the mission, but then she's on her own... nah, she meets Ash and Mike shortly after and they're the real main group." Testing holy biscuits batman they have a page for me and my entire fucking army of OCs this is a dream come true Tropes that apply to me (I won't reveal anything personal)

Even when the quest is finished, she still keeps close ties with Goku and his friends and helps out whenever possible. Which, considering she's a mechanical whiz, is quite often.

- Fire = Time (Guarantee; goddamn Uchihas)
- Shadow = Space (Likely; Shadow and Space are both associated with vampires in SBIG)
- Forest = Heart (Forest's the "main one" in SBIG, Nepeta's the "main one" in SBIG/always)
- Spirit = Breath (Forgot why; I think Tavros had something to do with it)
- Water = Light (I recall trying to specifically avoid Light = Light because it seemed obvious...)
- Light = Life (By proxy; also, the Sage of Light of SBIG, just like the rainbow of twelve elements, is associated with healing and shit. Also also, Rose Quartz. Heals and loves life.)
I generally care less about spoilling Ordinarily United before its first chapter is even out than I do about spoiling Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group. So here you go, pretty much the full story right here. Just about. ...On second thought I MIGHT flip things the other way around as I'm really in to the new OU, while on the brief occasion I kind of even forget about SBIG's existence. So enjoy these spoilers while they're still here.
Stellar Silver Knights, Carlson and his Unitia "Harem"
The Stellar Silver Knights as a Whole
A group of heroes that officially became a band branded as the Stellar Silver Knights during the invasion of the Hundred Demons.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: The "Main Four." Stella is Sanguine, Unitia Two (and hell, most of the Unitias that are not Origin/One) is(/are) Choleric, Unitia Origin also seems Choleric at first but is really Melancholic, and Carlson is all over the board but starts out Phlegmatic.
Sir Emilleabora Carlson (PHD), "The Astronaut Knight"
The story's main character (who thinks his first name is a little weird, so he goes by his last name). A guy who is ridiculously good at almost everything he does, and also just so happens to have been born with what is called a "Silver Gene," enabling him to do considerably more damage to demons with his bare hands than any other human. Also, he has the mysterious "Grayscale Boomerang" that is a pretty damn good weapon with killing demons, except it only works properly from his Silver Gene. Not wanting to have a target painted on him by both humanity and demon-kind alike as being the only one ever who has to take on the 99 demons, Carlson founded the Stellar Silver Knights. And the "Knight" in the title comes from how he went through a few things to try to get legally knighted, and succeeded when he managed to stop a kaiju from attacking Europe.
- The Ace: Exaggerated, as he almost comes off as a parody of a fan fiction character even though this is original fiction. Near the very beginning, there is a montage showing just a tiny fraction of his feats: He's a good swimmer... and then he's shown swimming up a waterfall. And he can win in a chess match while blindfolded, only able to use the sounds of which pieces land where to figure out the board.
- Always Someone Better: He's looking for a challenge, and someone who can best him at something becides cooking (the one talent he can't quite instantly master). He gets his wish. A lot. To the point where it's hard to really say OU is about an overpowered hero. (Unless one is talking about the Unitias.)
- Unitia Origin is an obvious foil to him, and shares a number of backstory elements when it comes to being "overpowered." It's fairly obvious that she's way better than him in some aspects (namely, anything to do with atoms and subatomic particles), but the difference is not that significantly big. She's pretty much his counterpart among the demons. His good counterpart among the demons. For an evil one, see below. However, when it comes to sparring, even if Origin has millions of other Unitias at her side, Carlson's super-fast Grayscale Boomerang protects him from all directions and manages to home in on and whack each Unitia effortlessly.
- The Eighth Circle. Oh, Carlson was born with a body that is far more effective at fighting the demons physically? Well, Eighth Circle trained his body (somehow) to be immune to that very same weakness Carlson explores.
- The moment Assily Blast breaks the Grayscale Boomerang and punches the shit out of Carlson (in previous fights, the enemy is lucky if they can even make a visible scratch; AB is the first foe to really make Carlson bleed, and he even breaks his nose), it becomes apparent that this is not strictly an "OP main character always wins and it's more 'how' than 'if,'" but that Carlson finally got his wish in the worst possible way and he must use a lot more strategy. In fact, this sort of thing is what makes him overthink his team's hike to the jungle, as in certain aspects Flower's Chest is not as powerful as Assily Blast.
- The Inventor is also significantly better than him combat-wise, as he was able to punch a hole in him (Carlson survies thanks to a technological invention by the Unitias) and
- Ambiguously Brown: He has some kind of slightly tanned skin, but what exact race he is is never made clear. According to Word of God, he hasn't even decided anything.
- Ambiguously Human: As with the Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage and Escape From Fanservice Island-incarnations of Soos, he has a lot of odd talents and traits that could make one question if he's really fully a human. Most glaringly, his "silver gene," which somehow means that his very body has some chemical properties of silver that enable him to deal significantly more damage to soul beings, as silver is one of their weaknesses. While Ordinarily ended without confirming anything, and Extraordinarily seems to be similarly tight-lipped on the matter, the Eighth Circle's theory — which the story implies — is that Carlson is essentially a full human. The Great One just blessed him with a stupid amount of power to see what would happen.
- Art Shift: In the comics. Most of the characters are animated in a bizarre, "obviously made in a computer drawing program"-style and keep this up consistently, even during goofy events. Carlson by far changes art style more often than the others:
- He looks extremely detailed and has more effort put in to him when his facial hair grows out too much, and he's drawn looking like something out of a testosterone-poisoned shonen.
- He looks like he's flat-out drawn in MS Paint when he's in sheer disbelief or shock at something. Notable examples include the story's cover art on Fictionpress and the panel of him telling Hoodieath that she's an asshole.
- Carlson in general is like some sort of art style-mood ring. He pulls off a lot of expressions that are drawn outside of the usual style, where his eyes can become single dots if said appearance necessitates it, etc.
- Berserk Button:
- He becomes a bit less stoic and more mad if your villainous plan involves interrupting him watching Wavette. Mostly as it's one of the very few things he feels enjoyment of when he watches its new episodes, as most activities bore him due to how easy they are, while Wavette is so unpredictable and just all-around moronic (an in-universe So Bad, It's Good work) that he actually gets some like out of seeing where it goes next.
- For similar reasons, he really hates being denied "an actual challenging fight." Swinging Blade falling on his own weapon and getting killed just made him stunned at the sheer anti-climactic-ness of it all, but the brief moment in Chapter 6 where he and Stella get stuck on his way to fight Blazing Fast is one of the very few times he's angry.
- The Chosen One: Deconstructed. He's not fated by any sort of prophecy directly, but he was naturally born with a specific sort of gene that lets him take down the demons more easily than other people. The thing is, he somewhat doesn't like the idea of being the only person (Unitias or no) that can fight off a strong army of 99 enemies, so the plot after his first unambiguous loss is about him desperately trying to round up who he can for backup. Also, he finds no joy in competing with people who aren't the Unitias, as he can win almost any game or challenge with them that does not involve cooking.
- Color-Coded Characters: Gray. Even his hair is gray. Other people insist it's "silver," but he prefers calling it gray and even uses color sheets to back his stance upnote .
- Comically Invincible Hero: He's far from completely invincible, but the number of enemies he's faced in his entire lifetime that give him a real challenge can still barely be counted on two hands. The only major characters that can give him a genuine challenge are the Unitias, and they're not evil. He still enjoys their company for, among being genuine friends, the fact that they can actually give him a good workout.
- The Comically Serious: At first. He goes from being rather stoic no matter what happens around him to just rolling around with and having a bit of fun when it comes to the Unitias to outright embracing his sillier side by the end.
- Decoy Protagonist: As is Great Pikmin Fan's tradition, although he's a downplayed example compared to others like Jim Unfel or [...Hrm, I'll need more...]. While the beginning builds him up to be the main character and Unitia One as the mysterious love interest, if anything it's the other way around. The issues he has with the Unitias get resolved quickly and anti-climactically (such as his "I'm more monogamous than you want me to be;" it's hinted at in Chapter 1, revealed in Chapter 2, but then they talk it out over Chapter 3 and after that it's more-or-less settled), but Unitia One has to overcome far more of her own issues, and pretty soon we find out enough about her so that she feels like Stella-levels of Audience Surrogate, while Carlson soon turns out to be an enigma on his own.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: Downplayed. He's still clearly a good-hearted person and never crosses the line in to being a dick (the worst thing he ever does is call people assholes; most of them are either Demons that plan on comitting genocide, which obviously falls under "asshole" as Unitia Origin/One believes; or are Hoodieath right after she admitted that ), but he's also extremely stoic and generally puts on a tough exterior. The Unitias warm him up over time and it turns out that he's actually a goof, he's just not outward about it because he's been through so much boredom and loneliness from being overpowered that he kind of "forgot" what goofing off was even like. Carlson from the first chapters and Carlson from the endgame feel like two completely different characters, unless one pays attention to how he's significantly happier when around Unitia Origin.
- Embarassing First Name: He's not that fond of it. The Unitias are the only people who can really get away with calling him that, and it's usually in the form of a Full-Name Ultimatum.
- Establishing Character Moment: He's woken up by a loud crash in the middle of the night (Unitia Origin's Tomb landing by Carlson's neighbor's house). His response? To spin-jump out of bed, throw a coin so that it ricochets around so that his shaving razor ends up in his hand. He runs while shaving simultaneously, and not only practically flies to his front door and opens it just as his neighbor is about to knock, he also perfectly shaves his face with no leftover hairs or cuts.
- A guy that's just seemingly perfect at several skills but is facing a crisis because he thinks he's too powerful? The guy is Saitama minus the super durability (he can still be injured by "regular" attacks, it's just that Grayscale does a stupididly good job at protecting him).
- The character concept of someone who is really good at a lot of things to almost Parody Sue levels compared to the rest of the cast and who uses a boomerang as their main weapon was recycled from a scrapped idea Fan had in his Total Drama fan fic Total Zeksmit: Campsites Around the World, where one of the newcomers was going to be a "genetic experiment" that is good at almost anything and carved her own boomerang out of pure diamond while stranded on an island that acted as the first destination of that game.
- GPF also cited Link's incarnation from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as an inspiration.
- Believe it or not, of Soos, even though they have the opposite personalities. Specifically, in The Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage. That fan fic's Soos is a blatant Parody Sue in sharp contrast to Dipper. He ends up with a massive harem of superpowered beings, and finds out that he himself is "blessed" in at least one major way (he's one-fourth love fairy)
- Happily Married: With Unitia One by the end, as they were not allowed to be "officially" recognized as married until all of the other ninety-nine Demons were taken care of. The final chapter consists of their "Grand Wedding." This continues in to Extraordinarily.
- Has a Type: He's in to women taller than him, which is a bit of a small pool given that he's already about six feet tall. Both Yuullieke and the "default form" of the Unitias are women taller than him. The confirmation happens early on the chapter that introduces Black Charm, who tries to seduce him and is a bit shorter than he is, which just goes to add on to how "unmatching" she is to his interests (in addition to Carlson not being the type of person who would be Distracted by the Sexy).
- In Spite of a Nail: Extraordinarily's "Alternatively United" series of chapters pose a bunch of "what-if" scenarios and situations, most of which involve altering the characters by quite a bit. Yet there's a number of constants with this guy. Same with everyone, really, but it's especially obvious with the "overpowered trio:"
- All Carlsons end up meeting with their respective Unitia eventually. Even in the situation as to what if they don't meet at the specific moment Carlson met them in OU proper. This might seem like something the Great One rigged up, but it's later implied to be the exact opposite. Great One apparently hates the idea of the two together for whatever reason, if the Tablets are correct about the religion. Whether their relationship ends up being positive or negative is a different story.
- His constant thirst is always an issue to some degree (although Unitia One and the Eighth Circle don't have a lack of this, as when they're both humans, they drink a lot too), even though it's explained to be sweating from how his "overpowered state" involves a bit of sweating. When he's a soul being, he's just a really "dry" species of soul being, and when he lacks the "overpowered state," it's because of his job as a cyclist leaves him sweating a lot anyway.
- The guy is a literal knight in shining armor (as in, he's been officially legally knighted and he tends to wear a suit of silver armor as a handicap) yet he does not at all act like one is typically portrayed. While he is willing to help people and nobody really considers him an outright asshole and he isn't even cynical, he does not take his unofficial job seriously (he does, however, care much more about his actual job in house-building), he never rescues any outright damsels in distress (unless one counts him flatly saving Ritch, a man Stella was dating at the time, from a fall in Chapter 2), and overall acts like damn-near the opposite of what one considers
- Relationship-wise, Carlson could make most Harem Seekers uttery radiant emerald with jealousy. He has an actual harem — not just a handful of women that are all crushing after him, but an infinitely-growing number of women that all agree to date and have sex with him together, there's no major yandere-related catch (they worst they ever do is get a little competetive ("territorial" is the word Great Pikmin Fan uses) over him when he announces that he'd rather be with Unitia One, but they're ultimately harmless), all of them are open about themselves, and they never even hit him (aside from the very rare, not-even-harmful, obviously friendly arm-bump; sparring matches they both initiate do not count). Yet he's far from a Harem Seeker. He sees his relationship with Unitia One as something genuine and monogamous, as One kept the Generator's replication a secret from him, intending to save the harem as a surprise present.
- Instant Expert: He can become an instant expert at almost anything he sets out to. For something like swimming, he goes above and beyond and can swim up Niagara Falls.
- Interspecies Romance: He's a human (just one that's ridiculously good at almost everything) and he has a harem of all the Unitias, which are considered soul beings.
- Locked In To Strangeness: It's heavily implied that whatever it is that "makes" him so talented at nearly everything also gave him gray hair as a side-effect. Neither of his parents and none of his grandparents have gray hair, even when they were much older than him.
- Mook Horror Show: He might not look like it at first, but the guy can put on an eerie face himself despite not being a soul being. This is first seen in Chapter 5 where he hunts down Cryipasto.
- Muscles Are Meaningless: The guy normally looks somewhat on the skinny side (for humorous purposes, however, he'll sometimes appear very muscular; notably when he takes off a necklace and suddenly reveals much more muscle, where the text version says that the joke would be a lot funnier if it were visual), yet his strength is all-but explicitely called superhuman, and he can tank like nobody's business.
- Never Gets Drunk: Type 3. One of his many, many odd talents is that his body is somehow able to "make quick use" of alcohol, meaning that any sort of effects are barely, if ever, even in him. He considers alcohol a waste of his time because of this.
- Not Distracted by the Sexy: Roughly 99% of his allies don't wear very much. He doesn't care, he's used to it seeing as he spent a year with the butt-naked Unitia Origin. Actually, he's not distracted by the Unitias — his reply to seeing Origin sticking her ass out of the portal at first is to flatly ask if she's a "butt alien," he asks if she wants to get dressed and accepts her Precision F-Strike answer. And even before that, he's lived around a lot of nudists. His Erotic Dreams that he has after working with them for a while suggests that he's "repressing" any attraction he has.
- Not So Above It All: It's a large theme in the story that he's more laid-back and goofy than he appears to be. He slowly goes from being stoic and appearing cynical to showing off more of his lighthearted and upbeat side — and even near the beginning, he shows a lot of that around the Unitias.
- Not So Stoic:
- He's visibly terrified upon seeing Eighth Circle's sheer enormous size in the ocean in Chapter 3.
- While easily able to kick Yuullieke's ass, he's noticeably unsettled when he was around her in the fourth arc.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Happens a lot, even if one does not consider his general lightening up as the story goes on:
- Grim or goofy, Carlson never swears. This is especially noticeable seeing as Stella swears all the time. So then
- The number of times Carlson has shown anything remotely resembling fear can be counted on one hand. And one of those times was when he went in to the ocean, put on the "ultra water goggles," and got a look at how gigantic Eighth Circle is.
- Polyamory: He's screwing all of the Unitias. Which, even rather early on in the story, number at the millions.
- Precision F-Strike: Unlike most of the cast, Carlson rarely swears. Which makes it so much more impactful when he specifically does:
- He cries out "WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT THING?!" after he finally gets an idea of just how gigantic the Eighth Circle is in his default form.
- Right before the fight with the Inventor that he has to sit out on, due to being given an otherwise fatal injury but being saved by the Unitias' recovery system, he bluntly tells the latter "It's still possible to take out a bunch of monsters yet still be a piece of shit."
- Precision-Guided Boomerang: Justified with the Grayscale Boomerang (or, sometimes just called the Grayscale). It's explicitely controlled either by him or by its own highly self-aware (to the point where Word of God is that Carlson suspects it of being sapient, and even locks it away tightly when he's not using it out of paranoia) lock-on system; Carlson can switch which one at will depending on whichever is more convenient. The Grayscale is also an exaggeration, as it can move around at extremely fast speeds so that it can deflect anything and everything around it.
- Real Men Wear Pink: His favorite hobbies are gardening and trying to improve his cooking skills. Specifically, cakes.
- Running Gag:
- He's really thirsty, a lot of the time. Whenever he's on a lengthy mission, except the story to give some comment about being unable to find water. Or him commenting on the quality of water. This happens more often when he's on ocean-related missions. He also hates deserts and badlands for very obvious reasons.
- Sex God: One of the few talents he definitely has above the Unitias, to his dismay. For comparison: the Unitias are practically Horny Devils in all-but-name, taking enjoyment feasting on sexual fluidsnote , having exaggerated sexualized designs by default, and most importantly being really good at pleasing others — seen with Unitia Origin and her many past lovers, all of which are stunned by her. Yet Carlson completely blows them all out of the water: he can take on billions of them and leave them as slobbering wrecks with sore legs. (It's implied that being United with them is somehow tied to "boosting" his skill, so it fits with the Unitias exponentially multiplying.) The cost of this is that it makes genuine lovemaking with them difficult, especially when it's just him and one of the Unitias.
- Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: He has above-average height himself, but the Unitias are enormous, standing at over eight feet tall. While each of them also weighs more than him, Word of God is that they would have weighed less if it were not for their enourmous breasts and butt cheeks. It's confirmed halfway through the story that he's a macrophile.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Soups that involve loads of meat, and he's especially weak if they have at least one egg in them. He loves egg white cloaked in broth. Much more often than that, he's seen drinking a ton of water — as his physical skills result in him sweating a lot, he needs to keep himself hydrated. The water reflects his Boring, but Practical approach to fighting monsters; the soups he eats are described as first looking like simple murky pools before a huge variety of food is apparent, reflecting his Hidden Depths and how he has way more of a joyous personality than he initially appears to have.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: After a bit of an edit to the first few chapters, he became this as soon as his knight armor was destroyed in Chapter 1. He tends to wander around in only a pair of gold swim trunks and nothing else. Which is, of course, modest compared to the Unitias' permanent nudity. Originally, he would wear a replacement armor built in between the events of the Dagger fight and Chapter 2, but Fan got sick of having to elaborate whether or not Carlson was in "knight uniform" and just had the knight suit be a one-time thing subjected to Clothing Damage, much like Bayonetta's nun outfit at the beginning.
- Weirdness Magnet: Becomes especially apparent when the second arc rolls by, and he suddenly just-so-happens to encounter a water-spirit person, a sky-spirit person, a ghost-like woman, someone who can use her teeth and bones as weapons, a partial digital also-ghost-ish figure, and a powerful psychic, among others. And unlike GPF's other works, this world seemed "normal" at first aside from Carlson's own overpowered skills and the Demons. He also briefly discussed mentioning people who have "mutated" or "evolved" differently, but those are background elements.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: He's a self-proclaimed "macrophobe." He doesn't like gigantic (like, bigger than a three-story house) monsters staring right down at him too much. Especially if they are sea monsters. Naturally, his eyes slowly adjusting to his ultra water goggles and seeing how huge the Eighth Circle is freaks him out a little.
- Would Hit a Girl: Nearly half of his 99 targets are female (this is just going by the Hundred Demons, not even counting side-villains like the Gatherer), so this is a given even not counting the Unitias as harmless sparring partners. In fact, when Carlson finally comes across another wannabe hero who does not want to fight a female Demon, he openly tells him that having that kind of attitude will get him killed in seconds, considering what some of the Demons — male or female — are capable of. It helps that this happened in the arc where Flower's Chest was the main villain of it, and she was one of the most powerful of the demons seen yet.
- Younger Than They Look: He's 22, but his gray hair color and his general "exhausted" look can, at times, make him appear to be older than he is. Lampshaded as Stella's not afraid to say that he didn't really age that well already.
Unitia Origin/Unitia One, "The Jade Flame"/"The First Sphere"/"Archangel U-nine" (and the species in general)
The Unitias are a species of soul being that initially started out as just a "Generator" (a strange stone-like block item, although the material it is made out of is apparently not even close to stone) and Unitia Origin, one humanoid. After being given physical form, the Generator gained the ability to just create additional Unitias out of nothing. It does so at a slowly expanding exponential rate; every day, the number of Unitias double. Unitia Origin (or "Unitia One," as most of the other Unitias call her and is technically her "more accurate name") was the first Demon Carlson tried to take down, and the only one he encountered while the rest of the Hundred were in their "Hibernation." However, he found that unlike the rumors of the other Demons in the future (most of which was information from Origin herself), the one he found felt no need to immediately attack him. After a bit of an average start and through knowing each-other from a lot of training, Carlson and Unitia Origin ended up falling in love and entered a heavy relationship. However, shortly after Hibernation's end, all was not as it seemed. Unitia Origin has a number of past demons haunting her
- The Ace: Where Carlson excells in more "mundane" skills, she's great even by the already high soul being standards. [...]It says a lot in that the threat of something bad happening to her is so low that Word of God outright confirmed early on that she will not die, although that's mostly because of his distaste towards killing off a love interest for the purpose of furthering the main characters' growth. And his unwillingness to kill off his Author Appeal characters in general.
- The Atoner: The whole reason why she even agreed to go on the mission to Earth was to try to make amends for her actions in the Parallel. She apologizes a lot, but Carlson — the only human she confessed to — doesn't see the big deal as long as she's honest about her new life on Earth. [EDIT: Nah. Also, shoot, I found the old name I placed for the Soul World! The Parallel! And... now I'm not sure which one I like better. Could both be used names, and the Parallel is the "official" name for the entire universe?] [EDIT AGAIN: Double nah? The first "nah" was that she didn't even do anything evil to get accepted under a lie or whatever, Eighth Circle just saw her name and she's famous for being OP so he instantly hired her. But then I have the thought of her doing some mildly bad crap in the past...]
- Author Appeal: A lot of her design is this. Part of it also comes from gleefully inverting or twisting what's normally considered "hot," especially in the moe sense. Want a short, flat-chested schoolgirl who is helpless and in need of protection? Nah, have a tall, oversize-breasted, sharp-tooth warrior who is clearly beyond college and can not only protect herself (hell, at one point she gets "kidnapped" on purpose just to hack in to the demon's computer, she breaks out and proceeds to annoy him to much by eating his food and the like that he actually tries to kick her out), but also has a design that says "kidnapper" more than "kidnappie." Oh, you think she's naked because she was forced that way and the main character's going to be nice and put clothes on her? Fuck no. She's naked because she likes being naked, wants to stay that way, and will stay that way for the entire story.
- Badass Armfold: The Unitias do one-armed variants, as their other arms are usually used to cover their crotches. The "badass" is amplified when Unitia One has her "realization" and comes back to finish off Wunhart, and does the first-ever two-armed armfold by any Unitia.
- Barbie Doll Anatomy: The Unitias are nipple-less in the aplty-titled "Nippleless Version" (it and the uncensored version are both equally free — the former just exists if one wants to read it around "a relatively larger group of people") and in "general concept art" for certain websites. So are everyone, including the men, but the Unitias stick out as they are constantly naked all the time.
- Battle Harem: The Unitias are all completely nude women who are often screwing Carlson, and they are easily among the most powerful characters in the entire story.
- Berserk Button:
- Trying to put clothing on her (or any Unitia) is an extremely bad idea, to the point where even the Eighth Circle advizes the other 98 that she's especially happy to go around naked. Because unlike the other Demons/soul-beings, the Unitias are flat-out irritated by legitimate clothes. (They especially hate panties for whatever reason; it comes as no surprise that the panty-obsessed Pantalite pisses them off just by hearing her name.) And they just love going around naked in general. She was fine with the press suddenly coming over to her Tomb over the year, but when the same person asks her to Please Put Some Clothes On twice, she yells at everybody (except Carlson) to Get Out.
- Don't get basic science facts wrong around her. The other Unitias aren't fans of it either, but Origin in particular flips out when someone describes beams of light as being made of "oxygen atoms."
- She gets pretty corrective when someone compares her sex-shifting to involuntary genderbending comics/media etc, as she strongly believes in free will and isn't fond of seeing people get altered against their wishes, especially for fetish purposes. This only really comes up with Shasiffift.
- Getting in the way of any Unitia's time with Carlson or acting as a moment-killing "third wheel" is a good way to get your ass kicked by one.
- Sexual harassment or peeping on someone. There's no Accidental Pervert situations since they actually work out misunderstandings and all Unitias are living lie detectors. However, if they see someone deliberately trying to spy on somebody naked or grope breasts... well, their reaction is not so much "angry anime girl that hits the guy," they (this is mostly just seen with Origin) are more like "Satan himself about to take a soul to Hell and torture them." While sexual harassment could upset almost any bystander, this is noteworthy for the Unitias in how it's one of the few ways to see a Unitia genuinely angry. Not even in the usual "annoyed" way.
- Interfering babies or children, especially if they're crying. Unitias One, Nine, Eleven, and Fourteen are not real child-people, in case their design being not suitable for minors (even if you have nudist opinions, they might also come off as "too scary" and their actions do have a layer of sexualization, so it's not just the nudity) was not a bit of a meta clue. The rest of the Unitias are relatively patient towards children but on a good day if a kid runs the risk of messing up a battle with a Unitia she'll just fast-open a portal and teleport them away. Wunhart is normally very adamant about pushing for everyone to try to be two-point-five kid, white picket fence nuclear families, but she knows that the Unitias' general dislike of even being around kids is not worth trying to talk her out of. Ironically, they tend to be pretty good therapists for crying adults.
- Finally and to a lesser extent as most of the others on the list, none of the Unitias are that fond of anything remotely tied to Toilet Humor. Well, ass jokes are fine, as long as it's in a sexual manner and not related to things coming out of the ass. Origin threatens to kill Swinging Blade in a more painful manner than her trademark finger-flick when he calls her fire conjuring "fire-farts" (it is revealed significantly later that the magic is at its most concentrated and easiest to use in any given person's rear, but Swinging Blade had no idea about that and the fire obviously first appears near a Unitia's hand, if not far away from her as they make it long-distance), Origin stops being "playful" with Cryipasto and gets pissed when she finds out about his "wish" that he makes the Unitias piss themselves in fright, and of course Assily Blast in general is a huge walking piss off-button for them. The latter makes them especially angry since, while the former two are Butt Monkeys, Assily Blast is one of the very few of the Hundred Demons that can put up something resembling a decent fight with a Unitia.
- Big Good: Becomes the leader of the Stellar Silver Knights in Chapter 5, after Mayor Green gives up his brief title as "Executive Manager." She's also the assigned leader of the Unitias, and to an extent she even tells Carlson what to do. Even the Prime Minister does not really qualify, as he's busy with the less-magical side of things. Notably, Unitia One spends the first four arcs seeing herself as the Greater Scope Villain and the ultimate root of Eighth Circle's evil if anything.
- She has a fondness for specifically introducing herself with "Oh, hi there!" as those were .GIFfany's first on-screen words. The Eighth Circle says this often too, and it's heavily implied and later confirmed that he got that from her. Along with a lot of other things.
- Variants of both "You'll get used to it" and "Those are terrible people," which border on Arc Words moreso starting around the third arc.
- Color-Coded Characters: The same sort of greenish-blue shade as her hair. The other Unitias are usually color-coded according to their hair too, but occassionally their whole palette or another aspect is used. One of her earliest "incarnations," the Curse Woman from Sweet Jade and Hella John, was color-coded according to her skin.
- Creepy Good: The Unitias look like something out of a horror movie that uses Fan Disservice: they're naked women, but they're also otherworldly afterlife beings with long, sharp claws and rows of sharp teeth. However, they're not actively malevolent, and given enough time they really come off as more just plain taunting/sexy than creepy. Their biggest "creepy" factor comes from their opinions on perverts.
- Cute Monster Girl: Many of the demons are humanoid, but they have odd traits like animal-like heads, bodies made of ice chunks, or generally have a number of inhumanoid features. Even the female demons are not immune to this — as lower halves that are clusters of flowers or [...I need to think of additional examples.] The Unitias, on the other hand, are just... tall and have sharp claws and teeth. Which is downright normal compared to what many of the other demons look like, even the humanoid ones. It's explored a bit more than the norm for this trope, as it's revealed early on that she takes advantage of her looks to try to make up for her being rather socially awkward.
- Death Is Cheap: If she or another Unitia is killed and the Generator is still around, then their souls would simply head back to the Generator and have a new body built. Hypothetically (this never happens in story), if they're dead and the Generator is gone, then they are for all intents and purposes killed for good. Still, they'll just go back to the Soul World, without much of a way to get to Earth.
- Decon-Recon Switch:
- Of harems in general, and of "magic harems" specifically. On the decon side, Unitia Origin spent the entire Hibernation year not even mentioning about the other Unitias that will be made by the Generator, in an attempt to surprise Carlson. Unfortunately, that all lied under the assumption that he would like the idea of a growing harem. Instead, it freaks him out, and he's worried about the one Unitia that he spent an entire year getting to know and fall in love with just sinking with an ever-growing sea of naked women and pushing herself in the background. Which she kind of does over her guilt for her past life as a clingy stalker. The result is that instead of "Oh, awesome, I have my own growing harem of superpowered women who are tied to me both in and out of battle," the relationship suffers from a huge amount of strain. Especially as Carlson can't quite figure out how to break the news to the Unitias, since he does not want to hurt any of them. It's eventually reconstructed with Unitia Origin coming to terms with how she's become better than her past self, eliminating her desire to "replace" herself on the relationship with the harem, and Carlson regarding the other Unitias individually.
- Origin in of herself is this to the Manic Pixie Dream Girl: she's effectively one to Carlson, and from her point of view Carlson is this to her given that she regards Earth culture the same way someone would regard "RPG/fantasy world mechanics."
- Establishing Character Moment: Her ass is the first thing the readers see/get a description of, as she spawns out of a portal from the shared Unit Verse. Following that (especially after Chapter 1 was partly rewritten), she at first seems to taunt Carlson, but she softens after finding out that he reacts stoically to her. When openly asked if she wants clothes, her response is a very blunt "Fuck no. I hate clothes," complete with a Slasher Smile. So, she's naked of her own free will, and she completely knows and does not have an interest in getting dressed. Right off the bat, you can cross off her being an Innocent Fanservice Girl or a Reluctant Fanservice Girl. Finally, the very first scene with her ends with her saying that she wants to make things clear with Carlson meanacingly before it cuts to the beginning of the Dagger-fight, implying that she was about to attack him or do something. It's not until the next scene that it's revealed that she was not trying to kill Carlson, but instead wanted to give him exposition about the Hundred Demons.
- She's all-but a good-natured inverted expy of .GIFfany. Not just of GPF's past fan fiction, she's a clear-cut inverse of her canon self: .GIFfany initially appears as an "adorable" sprite schoolgirl with a Vague Age that turns out to be a possessive, manipulative, and abusive yandere that wants to download her player in to her game. Unitia Origin originally appears as an extremely tall, "creepy" looking ghostly thing that soon turns out to be nice and understanding, and she wants to leave her own world (because it's crowded) and settle on Earth. Hell, Origin's hair color was based on inverting .GIFfany's.
About the fan fiction, it's played straight. A lot of the Unitias' powers are taken almost directly from either what's established in run:gifocalypse or the "soft reboot" that Escape From Fanservice Island uses: both groups are self-replicating and they can matter synthesize (although it starts out as color-coded "flames" for the Unitias, which ), they're both groups of geniuses,
- Fan claims he didn't realize it at first, but she's a lot like a harem full of naked female Alucards. Practically unkillable, has a certain admiring look on humanity (compare how she feels about "the living" with Alucard's belief that only a man can kill a monster), taunts the shit out of their enemies, can make themselves look fucking horrifying, and hangs out with an Ambiguously Brown human they're close to in addition to a relative newbie when it comes to fighting the supernatural.
- Great Pikmin Fan also realized that she is kind of a good counterpart to Witchita. Extremely powerful constantly-nude women with telekinesis and a fondness for color-coding. Both of them also have exes that they are trying to kill; Steve for Witchita, and the Eighth Circle for the Unitias. There's also their "prototype" from the original Sweet Jade and Hella John, the Curse Women, who sort of "split" to Witchita and the Unitias. The Curse Women even had the ability to replicate, and said replicas differed by color scheme.
- After playing Bayonetta a bit after starting the first couple of chapters, Fan threw in some retroactive references to the title character. Originally, the Unitias did not
- She's all-but a good-natured inverted expy of .GIFfany. Not just of GPF's past fan fiction, she's a clear-cut inverse of her canon self: .GIFfany initially appears as an "adorable" sprite schoolgirl with a Vague Age that turns out to be a possessive, manipulative, and abusive yandere that wants to download her player in to her game. Unitia Origin originally appears as an extremely tall, "creepy" looking ghostly thing that soon turns out to be nice and understanding, and she wants to leave her own world (because it's crowded) and settle on Earth. Hell, Origin's hair color was based on inverting .GIFfany's.
- Fan Disservice: Word of God is that she's supposed to toe the line and it really depends on the readers' tastes; he would not consider it unusual to be genuinely aroused by the Unitias even with their sharp teeth and exaggerated proportions, but he's not surprised that some find it a bit off. She plays this straight when she's pissed off beyond reason in response to someone groping or otherwise sexually harassing another person. The Unitias are still naked, but they turn in to even bigger, bulky monstrous looks with faces all of them and bloodshot, pupil and iris-less white eyes growing everywhere. That also have spider leg-like tentacles growing from them.
- False Friend: Carlson is the only non-Unitia person she is not this to at some point or another.
- She snuck on the Hundred Demons with the extremely blatant intent on betraying them and stopping them from killing humanity. Despite Origin/One generally being pretty good at blending in to things socially and "disguising" herself, her reputation as a human life-defender and atoner for her past actions was so known that all of the other Demons saw right through it and nobody was shocked when she killed her first target (who she wanted to be Pantalite, but it ended up being FY) and, just prior, announced that she was hunting down the Demons. The Eighth Circle, on the other hand, fell right for it, and continued to keep up his denial until Carlson explicitely told him the truth in Chapter 6. It's intentionally left to interpretation as to how much of each trait, if it were any at all of them, that this denial was influenced by Eighth Circle and Unitia One's past relationship thinking she was going to take him back, Eighth Circle being amazed at someone that powerful joining, or Eighth Circle genuinely being guillable/way too willing to trust people as friends.
- As revealed in the Fuck the Jungle Arc, she quickly regretted hiring Stella as "potential backup," especially after the arc itself finally saw her getting a boost in self-confidence. She never really liked Stella,
- Foil: To Carlson. The first chapter goes over their lives before the 100 attack, and it's pretty similar. They spent their first years living "normally," but they slowly found themselves getting better and better at various things rapidly (except intelligence, which was always high). They each also have skills that would be overkill in terms of power individually, let alone together. However, while Carlson soon ends up bored because he's without a challenge (aside from cooking, which he keeps practicing at), Origin takes delight in being skilled at everything (except proper gardening). While Carlson is normally rather good at making friends aside from his high social status making people afraid of him, Origin is pretty terrible at it and annoys the demons around her (she also has a low social status, as the main demon everyone was hyping up was Eighth Circle).
- Full-Frontal Assault: Listed seperately from the other Demons/soul beings because she and the other Unitias are ALWAYS naked, apart from a brief flashback where Origin tried out clothes before finding out that she hated them. Several of the Demons have very non-humanoid bodies and some of them are blatant examples of Nonhumans Lack Attributes; the Unitias are exceptions to both. Even on top of that, they still technically "wear" a single finger (or sometimes two, or under stress/quick-reaction a whole hand) over their crotches when it's not just them and Carlson, so you know shit's about to get real when one of them — initially seen with Unitia One, fighting Wunhart — instead crosses both arms and fully exposes her crotch, shit is about to get real.
- Gag Boobs: The Unitias blur the line between this and Buxom Is Better (Fan specifically said that he was aiming for "what's usually considered the perfect breast size... and then maybe just a few sizes larger just to be mean). On one hand,
- Gainaxing: The Unitias as a whole are mentioned doing this from time to time. Origin's introduction begins with this being the second thing she's ever seen doing. The first is her ass entering Earth's plain of existence from leaving her pocket dimension.
- Get Out: She'll yell this at anyone dumb enough to ask her to put on clothes twice. And that's on a good day.
- Hand-or-Object Underwear: The closest thing she and the other Unitias have to an "outfit" is keeping a single finger right over their vulvas. In their male form, they have to cup most of a hand around their penises. This is how the comic version shows them regularly, as the comic does not (directly) depict genitals despite showing everything else. When they need both hands for something, Scenery Censor comes in to play. Or, in the first case where Unitia One does a full Badass Armfold after declaring her past as "Unitia Origin" was dead, she gets a gigantic Lens-Flare Censor.
- He's Back: She goes through a one-and-three-fourths chapter long depression in the second half of the Fuck the Jungle Arc. She leaves Carlson because she feels that she just spent her recent life running away from her problems and took poor-to-no steps in actually improving herself, and does not want to leave a bad impersonation
- In Spite of a Nail: Across the various alternate Unitia Origins seen in Extraordinarily's chapters devoted to "what-if" scenarios, they all have several things in common:
- They have all spent their whole lives naked, human or soul being. That one flashback in Ordinarily proper where Unitia One briefly tried on clothing was the only time across all multiverses where any Unitia is canonically seen wearing clothing. To the point where Word of God is that any fan work where Origin/One puts something on instantly becomes "100% entirely non-canon and will never be canon," no matter how much he likes it.
- Her human form is still tall, but more along the lines of "seven feet" than "nine feet." She still has sharp claws,
- When she lacks the Great One "blessing," Generator can still make other Unitias in an infinitely-doubling rate when given a physical form, it's just that the other Unitias are similarly not "overpowered." They are held as risking "overcrowding" the planet. Unitias still return to the Generator upon "death' and only truly die if the Generator is also destroyed, it's just that both are much easier to do
- She retains matter-creation, it's just nowhere near as powerful or instantaneous as it is in the main canon.
- Let's Get Dangerous!: All Unitias love covering their crotches with a single finger, in a manner similar to the half-assed "because it's the law but here's a loophole" found in explicit material from Japan (which partly inspired it out-universe). This means that they fight using just one hand, and they are so ridiculously powerful that they can get away with it. If a Unitia ever ends up using two hands and she's not just having a play-fight with Carlson, not only does it mean that they're putting genuine effort in to it, but it's also one of the highest forms of respect they can give a person. Or it means the opposite: that they're really pissed off at who they're facing, drop the "teasing" act entirely, and utterly want their enemy dead, as seen with Pantalite, the Inventor, Yuullieke (twice; Carlson interrupts Unitia One both times, first to try to defend Yuullieke, and second because he wanted to kill her himself), and Wunhart. In the case of the latter two, it's just Unitia One. In the case of the former, all of the present Unitias at the time team up and use both hands, just to ensure that Pantalite does not put a pair of panties on any Unitia.
- Male Gaze: Outright parodied.
- The first we ever see of them is Origin's ass sticking out of a portal (to her pocket dimension), followed by her breasts. And we see her face last. Then there's the fight with Dagger near the beginning, where both of them have the demon pinned down (Dagger is long, so Origin ended up on his face while Carlson ended up lower on his body). We see the scene from Carlson's POV, and he's looking right at her enormous ass.
- The "cover" for "Volume 2" shows a fully-body shot of Origin's male form from behind, and "Volume 3's" cover does the exact same thing with Origin's female form (with the biggest difference being that she's looking right instead of left).
- Fan thought that, despite literally running around naked for the whole story, the Unitias weren't sexualized enough compared to other fanservice-parodies, so he went back to the early chapters and added even more emphasis on their naked bodies. And this does not have the excuse of being from Carlson's perspective, as while Carlson does think they are attractive and sleeps with them on a regular basis, he does not really spend that much time oggling them.
- Manic Pixie Dream Girl — Er, Manic Pixie Dream Woman:
- Deconstructed and reconstructed. She can be considered a literal woman from "heaven" that dropped right near Carlson's house, with magic powers beyond even his own that indirectly (and regrettably) helps him find friends and an all-around less-lonely new life... except she has a ton of baggage and is far from the most mentally-stable person Carlson meets. They also still have bad habits with their past relationships — Carlson's been all-but conditioned in to being a doormat thanks to Yuullieke's abuse when they were teenagers, and Origin's clingy to almost yandere levels and really hates anyone who isn't Carlson or another Unitia. Both of them ultimately want sheltered lives with only themselves around, and their Character Development involves both of them opening up to different people in different ways. Her by being less rejective (although she is still portrayed as being somewhat justified, namely that about half of her criticisms aimed at Stella are genuine flaws that she works on), and him by being less paranoid and closing people off. After their character arcs,
- Subverted altogether in that her personality is completely unlike a usual MPDG. She's hyper-intelligent, [...] She's also her own person with goals that have nothing to do with Carlson, in an attempt to write a main relationship with both characters can stand by themselves and either of them is completely defined by being "the love interest," nor does one of them feel like the "reward" for the other. For starters, they enter their relationship at the beginning of the story and it's clear that they're far from done with their arcs just because they're hooked up.
- Meaningful Name: Her name can be spun in a few different ways:
- "Unitia" with the "United" in the story's title are obvious ones (Fan thinks that her "full title" having reversed initials from the story's title is a coincidence; also, the pun of "United = U-Knighted," which he later used as a form of Portmantaeu Couple Name), and she is the first Demon of the 100 to Unite with a human. And it's the first seen Unity in the story.
- Get rid of the "ia" and you'll have "Unit," and given her person-creation powers, they are effectively units to a greater whole. They and Carlson both rely on power of numbers, and have a nack for precise counting and individual management. So, unit measurement plays an important part in her life.
- "Origin" fits her in being the first out of the Unitia line once she starts making them, but in-story this does not happen until after she enters Earth, which is more than two decades in to her life. The actual title came from her ability to generate matter from nothing (which is apparently a common demon thing, so she has a rather common demon title outside of the 100), and she functions as an "origin" there.
- Ms. Fanservice: The story absolutely isn't lacking in fanservice involving both sexes, but Unitia Origin hands-down provides the most of both female and male fanservice by far, the latter through her sex-shifting (which does not happen that often, but when it does, it does). She permanently walks around naked, and being one of the main characters, she has more screentime with that nudity. Combine the two and that means we see her naked body a lot, with the only censorship being a tiny finger's worth over her crotch. While the entire story doesn't shy away from sex scenes (especially given that Stella is an Ethical Slut), Carlson has sex with the Unitias a lot (and with Origin once a day over the rest of the Tomb hibernation, a few days after they enter a relationshipnote ), and Fan does everything short of describing what's going on with the really intimate organs (and even then, we see the resulting fluids a lot).
- My Hero Zero: As Carlson points out in the first chapter, "Origin" could technically mean "zero" rather than one if one goes by graphing terminology. This does a good job at reflecting how Unitia One sees herself, when she went by Unitia Origin.
- Numerological Motif: Oh boy. She and the species in general are heavily associated with the number nine, and she herself with zero and one. Fan said that most of the connotations listed on the page are coincidences; he just did the zero/one symbolism as reflections of her growth, and the nine Arc Number throughout was just to be cool at first.
- As Carlson points out in the first chapter, she calls herself "Unitia Origin," and on a graph at least, the origin marks the very beginning/zero point of the entire thing (0,0, with additional zeroes depending on the dimensions).
- The most obvious is that Origin's Demon #9.
- "Unitia One" has nine letters total, and is for all intents and purposes her "real name." As does Unitia Two. This was admitted by Great Pikmin Fan to be a coincidence.
- In Carlson's timezone, her Tomb landed on Earth on 1:09 AM, as explained in Chapter 2. A year later after the Hibernation (this goes for the other Demons), she became physical, and every subsequent 24 hours the Unitias multiply by 2. In other words, 1:09 is the time more Unitias are made. This also works in military time.
- Of the Hundred Demons, she's the one that is a complete traitor in that she flat-out refuses to harm (innocent, she's absolutely fine battling Lock-On, Inventor, Gatherer, and Yuullieke, and even kills Inventor) human life, leaving her with ninety-nine actual targets to take down.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business:
- Virtually any time Origin drops her usual cheery attitude is a bad sign. Moreso for the other Unitias, as they aren't as guilt-ridden about Origin/One's past and so they're more cheery than Origin is.
- The Eighth Circle utterly pisses her off beyond reason. It's quite telling something is very wrong when she resorts to belting out and screaming at Carlson over the radio to kill the Eighth Circle when he's around him while she's preoccupied with another mission.
- A Unitia covering her crotch is regular game. A Unitia covering her breasts too? Run. Run far away, or the things she'll pull off will traumatize you for years. Unless you've groped or peeped on someone, in which case, you're the reason why she's doing that. And in that case, the only thing you can do to spare yourself from her physical and psychological torture is killing yourself.
- Perpetual Smiler: The Unitias are usually seen grinning or, at the very least, smirking. Even to some of the more powerful enemies.
- Pocket Dimension: The Unit-verse, a side-dimension that can be access from anywhere by the Unitias. There are actually two "types" of these: a finite (but still enormous) dimension that each Unitia has personal access to, and an infinite one that they all share, which is where they hang out when they become too much in number for the planet to handle.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Since Carlson is almost always a general "blue" early on and Unitia Two is a general "red," Unitia One's place in relation to them is a bit... complicated. Going one at a time:
- She's usually the red to Carlson's blue, as she's far more outgoing, energetic, and "playful" than he is, while he's pretty laid-back and stoic. They switch when she's in a bad mood and/or he's in a hyped mood, but this usually never happens around the same time, unless the Eighth Circle is involved.
- She's almost always the blue to Unitia Two's red, which coincidentally is close to their thematic colors. Unitia Two is far more upbeat and teasing than One is,
- Reed Richards Is Useless: Averted. She can make fully-functioning matter out of nothingnote , and even fully-working food with no problem. And there's plenty of her that can do the same. Origin alone ends up solving world hunger and other problems offscreen the first day after Hibernation, and the Unitias as a whole slowly turn Earth in to a utopia. Just a utopia that's being threatened by a continent-sized monster.
- Running Gag:
- Despite her intelligence, Origin (and seemingly only Origin) is bad at decision making. She claims that she has a "thing" where, once she picks something, she absolutely sticks with it and does not change her mind for any reason. Otherwise she'll spend even more time trying to chose. The beginning of Chapter 6 shows her at a store pondering what kind of sporting equipment to try out, and when she's "locked in" a choice Carlson brings up a third option and she goes back to sitting down looking back and forth at them.
- The favorite method of the Unitias in general but Origin/One specifically for killing enemies is to simply flick a finger at them, and either the finger itself or the shockwave from them makes them burst.
- She wants to give herself an Animal Motif, but can never settle on one. She considers ants, then cats, then
- In fact, Origin is surprisingly bad at making choices despite being an Ace everywhere else and generally having unlimited resources. It's stated that because she can normally make whatever she wants out of magic/nothing, she's not using to having to pick one thing or another.
- Satellite Love Interest: Actively defied. Fan wanted to make sure that Unitia One came off as her own character first, and was not mainly defined as "Carlson's girlfriend." This is mainly why the two of them go on separate adventures quite often, out-universe.
- Serial Escalation: At the beginning of the story, there's only four Unitias — well, there's just one for most of the first chapter, then it's revealed to be at four in the In Medias Res opening segment where Carlson fights Dagger. In Chapter 2, it becomes eight at the beginning, and sixteen halfway through. From there, Fan has fun with the powers of two as their numbers quickly enter the hundreds, then thousands, then millions, billions, trillions, quadrillions, etc. The reason for the short timespan after the Hibernation — unlike Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group, the "bulk" of the story does not take place over the span of one year — is because the Unitias exponentially grow so much that they can utterly destroy almost any of the Demons.
- Sex Shifter: The Unitias have some limited form-changing, but one thing they have the most control over is that they can give themselves male forms.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: Exaggerated. The Unitias go around naked at absolutely all times — in One's introduction, the narrative itself openly says that she will never put on any clothes in the story's future. The one exception to their total nudity was a flashback (which fit in line with her not being dressed in the story's future) when Origin briefly tried on clothes, but found that she utterly hated them, so she vowed to never wear anything again. Great Pikmin Fan even has a rule written that they will never permanently be clothed, or even really temporarily outside of said one flashback instance.
- [Blah blah blah Giffster crap goes first]
- The first three other Unitias made by the Generator have pink, yellow, and blue hair — this is kind of a nodnote to Kings of Power: 4 Billion%, where three of the heroines nearly follow that color scheme; some of Unitia Two-Four's "triple-team attacks" are also what they pull off (and the inspirations even get naked for at least one of their attacks). Like the Unitias, the women are near-identical and only differ in color.
- Fan said that her One-Winged Angel form against perverts is partly inspired by Bad Batter.
- Showy Invincible Hero: In contrast to Carlson being comically invincible and finding boredom from his fights, Unitia Origin (who does dip in to the comical side, mainly earlier in the story where the villains did not feel as threatening) falls under here more often. Where her invulnerability is played as a badass feat rather than for laughs, and she usually finds "creative" ways to play with her opponents before taking them out with the flick of a finger. Oh yeah, and like Carlson, she's immune to reality warping.
- Smart People Play Chess: She plays the soul-being equivalent, "Mushroom," and is apparently undefeatable at it. Predictably, she beats Carlson at it, while he beats her at "regular" Chess. So they end up making a combined version that also includes a complicated economic system and the ability for players to generate/craft pieces similar to Minecraft (complete with the 2x2 grid becoming a 3x3 grid around rooks). Since their game also involves players being able to indefinitely make their own extensions of the board, the resulting play lasts several hours despite both of them moving fast and short turns, and ends up extending all over to the walls of the entire Tomb. Carlson wins.
- Speed Sex: Gender-inversion. They are normally able to pull this off on other people, as briefly seen with Unitia Origin and the soul beings she used to have unhealthy attachments to. However, sex turns out to be one of the things Carlson definitely is more talented in than any of the Unitias — whenever he actually puts in effort, they barely last. This is also how he's able to satisfy them even when their numbers start touching the millions — another reference to Soos in Journals.
- Statuesque Stunner: One of the main sources of fanservice in this (which is a very tough competition, even with all the Fan Disservice going around) and she's eight feet tall.
- Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl: Has this appearance at first, but it's soon revealed that she's not even remotely hostile.
- Take That!: Most of the overall Unitia design is Author Appeal, but part of it is was to be a mockery of "moe"-type characters, so the Unitias are the exact opposite of that. Instead of being submissive, childlike, small, quick to cry, defenseless/helpless, and invoke an "I want to adopt her!" mentality, the Unitias are freaking giants with exaggerated proportions that are very intelligent (the story constantly reminds the readers of this, with their constant medical work and talk about chemistry and physics). They are among the most powerful characters in the story by far, clearly do not take crap from anybody, and are very much unambiguously adults.
- That Man Is Dead: After having a less-than-chapter-length Heroic B.S.O.D., Origin comes back in to battle claiming that her old self — Demon #9 on the list — is dead. And she cements this by going by Unitia One now, rather than Origin.
- Token Heroic Orc: The only definitely good Demon from the 100. Neutral demons or morally-gray ones have been encountered, notably the crew United with the Gatherer. And there's the soul beings not part of the 100 — it's implied that those that did not have any interest in wiping out humanity are in the majority.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Disregarding the sexual fluids, she loves meat (a lot of her own matter-synthesized food for her own enjoyment is meaty), more specifically sea food (a nod to .GIFfany, as she's part-octopus in-game and in Journal 3 Soos describes eating sushi with her), and is especially fond of anchovies. That's near-universal among the Unitias; Origin specifically is also obsessed with strawberries. As with Carlson and Stella both having an "associated food that reflects them," in Origin's case the huge quantities of meat reflect her being the most "beastly" of the three, and anchovies -> fish -> ocean -> she's mysterious, dark, "huge" (in the sense of her replication), and just as most of the ocean was unknown at the time of OU's writing, she starts out having a lot of mysterious.
- Tranquil Fury: She's seen playing this up a little when she encounters a groper. She keeps up her grin as she starts a grotesque transformation, threatening the person. Hard.
Unitia Origin: (Fit of laughter.) Oh, I'm sorry. I must have confused you for a human. Yeah, it happens some times. But you're not a human, are you? You're just a piece of shit. Shit that deserves to rot in the ground so that something more pleasant grows from you, like weeds.
- Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Downplayed inversion. Carlson has an average-to-attractive build, if being on the lanky side. He's also considered very attractive in-universe, and was apparently an unwanted Chick Magnet back in high school. While the Unitias are Cute Monster Girls and are certainly more humanoid-looking than a bulk of the other soul beings seen in the story, their design really has more "monster" than "cute," and they are inspired by "troubled spirit" monster women from horror media. Also, they aren't husband and wife until the end of Ordinarily and the events of Extraordinarily.
- Unreliable Narrator: In her flashback at the beginning. Carlson covered just about everything needed to be known about him for the beginning of the story. Origin's is a bit longer, which at first makes it seem like she tells more about her life, but her life was actually considerably more eventful. Specifically, she dated the Eighth Circle.
- Unusually Uninteresting Sight: You would think that just one unnaturally tall, permanently nude woman who is of a demon-ish species from the afterlife just casually walking around would cause more commotion. There are some people that tell her to put on clothes, but not as many as you'd think. It helps that public nudity is legal in OU's future world and the population had the whole Hibernation year to get used to the Unitias beforehand — not to mention that Carlson was the one giving information about the Unitias, and he's highly respected. Also, the people who are prejudiced against them are surprisingly low.
- Wrong Name Outburst: While in a heated argument with Carlson, she ends up calling him Fred by mistake — the name of the Eighth Circle. Carlson, out of spite, retorts that by calling her Yuullieke based on her somewhat possessive actions leading up to that. Both of them regret the accidental/intentional misnaming shortly after they say it; in fact, Carlson's insult comes right when Origin in genuinely sorroful for everything.
Unitia Two, "The Galactic Trumpet"
The first of the "extra Unitias" made by the Generator, twenty-four hours after Hibernation ended.
- Ascended Extra: In Extraordinarily, where she goes from being Origin's sort of "filter-less, guilt-less foil" to more of her own person, and even gets more spotlight than Carlson himself. (Also, Stella, but Stella has a habit of getting Out of Focus, so that's not saying very much.)
- Berserk Button: In addition to the standard set of the Unitias (excluding some of Origin/One's points), Two has a few unique ones of her own:
- Calling Unitia One and her "Thing One and Thing Two" does not roll well with her.
- She's the only Unitia, "Main Sixteen" or otherwise, who is explicitely seen not taking it too well to the fact that Carlson is supernatually good at lovemaking even compared to the Unitias.
- Do not treat the Unitias as one person, or forget the others when counting a whole group like the Knights/the harem. She's fine with someone specifically only counting Carlson and One if they're isolating them for whatever reason, but she does not take kindly to things like "the three of us" said by Stella. She gets uncharacteristically grumpy
- Cat Scare: She scares the shit out of Carlson by sneaking in to his bed in the morning along with Unitia Origin on the second post-Hibernation day. They both thought it would be a fun little surprise to announce the Generator's replication ability, but seeing how Carlson was genuinely sent in to attack mode upon feeling that someone else was in bed with them, they appologized and try not to outright startle him like that again.
- Catch-Phrase: Starting in the Knight-Building Arc, she has a habit of saying things along the lines of "That looks like a lot of fun..." Usually in a sexual content, like if Carlson and/or other Unitias are watching/reading pornography.
- A Day in the Limelight: The flashback in Chapter 6 to the Dungeon Gang shows her first individual Demon kill(s). She also gets this as she's ultimately the one who faces off against PETAL SQUAD FORCE and kills them off for good, namely with their "final battle" consisting of her watching their... "fusion dance" and then finger-flicking the fifteen of them in disappointment.
- Divergent Character Evolution: In-universe as well as out. She starts out as literally a second Unitia Origin, but slowly becomes her own person. All Unitias go through this apparently, but hers is the one that is shown the most by far.
- Everyone Has Standards: Like all the Unitias, she's very sexual in nature and, as one of the Running Gags states, she really likes sex. PETAL SQUAD FORCE — a group of fifteen soul beings (that are counted as one for... a similar reason that the Unitias are grouped together) that all resemble middle-aged men, Hank Hill specifically — all have a Fusion Dance that's more-or-less them starting off with a dance that gets increasingly erotic until they have a literal orgy. Unitia Two's response is to drop her jaw and slowly clap. It helps that the actual fusion process with the Unitias is surprisingly simple and non-sexual, where they simply turn in to flame and merge together.
- Word of God is that, once again linking back to the Gravity Falls prototype fics, she's more or less the result of "splitting post-redemption .GIFfany in two" and giving the "guitless, playful, kind of clingy, shows some signs of her past self" aspects to her (mostly seen in Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage) with the angsty side that thinks the universe went too easily on her was given to Unitia One (mostly seen in Escape From Fanservice Island, both pre- and post-remake). This is as, going by colors, One corresponds with Eve (.GIFfany's literal photo-inverse, except as Eve is mostly defined by being the Token Evil Teammate, Fan thought that that would be a tricky thing to try to apply to the Unitias, although Unitia One does in fact end up fitting the bill by the first half) and the other corresponds to the original.
- In an aversion, Word of God swears that she was not a reference to Zero Two, and the pink hair, numerical-naming,
- Foil: To Unitia One. Of the two of them, Unitia One is relatively more serious,
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Her unofficial hero title, "The Galactic Trumpet." It sounds silly, but it's confirmed to be based on the Biblical trumpets to cue the apocalypse. So basically her title is a word-salad way of saying "potential destroyer of the galaxy."
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: Starting from the tail-end of the second arc, she competes with Unitia Nine for having the foulest mouth out of the main gang of Unitias. Stella, who cannot for the life of her remember any of their numbers except One, refers to her as "the pink-hair one that says 'motherfucker' a lot."
- Troll: She fucks with everyone. Including the other Unitias. And especially Origin/One. She does mean well, though, the biggest evidence being that she is the only character that near-consistently calls Origin "Unitia One," (well, along with... the other Unitias, but still, she is shown saying it way more often) figuring out Origin's whole deal with her past life being "dead." (See That Man is Dead, under One's folder.) The one exception to this is Carlson; she can never, ever say anything that bugs him. In fact, he usually ends up screwing with her.
The "Main Gang," Unitias Three-Sixteen
The Main Gang as a Whole
- Color-Coded Characters: Including One/Origin and Two:
- Unitia One/Origin: Deep jade green
- Two: Hot pink
- Three: Yellow
- Four: Blue
- Five: Orange
- Six: Violet [MIGHT swap with Fourteen as part of the meat/paint color switch thing]
- Seven: Cyan
- Eight: Magenta
- Nine: Black
- Ten: Chartreuse
- Eleven: Green
- Twelve: Spring Green
- Thirteen: Azure
- Fourteen: Rose Red [See Six]
- Fifteen: White
- Sixteen: Red
- Elemental Powers: While all Unitias are capable of any "element" — including those that they made up — the Main Gang specifically loves to assign themselves to specific "sub-squads" where they would use a given element slightly more often than the others. Of course, being that they are each meant to be intentionally overpowered characters, this means that flashy element-based toying around fights along the likes of Emazh In and, to a lesser extent, the antics of the .GIFfanys in the remade run:gifocalypse and tail-end of Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage don't happen. Except for the odd Unitia-versus-Unitia (or Carlson-versus-Unitia fight).
- Expy: Three through Sixteen are effectively the professors of Fan's various Gravity Falls fanworksnote , and specifically based on their Lighter and Softer interpretations in his "shitpost" or "joke" stories. Unitia Nine, for example, edges more towards being like Dove's joke-y "I try to sound very professional and organized but I tend to goof a lot" rather than her misanthropic, considerably angrier self in run:gifocalypse. As noted above, .GIFfany herself is split down the middle between Unitias One and Two: One representing the regretful atoner characterization "shoved" on her in Escape From Fanservice Island, and Two being more her direct and assertive "I just want to sleep with my guy and nothing else, really" self from Journals.
- Those Two Guys: Out of the sixteen, Three and Four are probably the most "normal" of them (emphasis on the quotation marks). They tend to be together a lot,
- Making a Splash: The leader of the "Water Sector."
- The Quiet One: By far the least-talkative out of the main gang. She's even the first one who experimented if it were possible to add a line in Unit Chat without saying anything.
The Other Unitias
- Amazing Technicolor Population: Many of them have unusual skin colors, after the initial sixteen mostly use realistic skin colors, with Eight's really pale tone being one possible exception.
- Born as an Adult: This applies to all soul beings (who are first generated as souls out of seemingly nothing — not even the top demon scientists can figure out where they came from), but it's especially noticeable with the Unitias as they are the only "just made" demons of note we actually see. Origin is the second-youngest out of the Hundred with Eighth Circle as the youngest, and even they existed for a full 20/19 years respectively.
- Conservation of Ninjutsu: Defied. If Carlson and Origin are getting their asses kicked in a two-on-one battle, calling other Unitias pretty much never puts them at a disadvantage. Being GPF's token faux-genre savvy character of this story, Tony is expecting the odds to be in his favor because he's fighting more Unitias at once. He can't even punch one of them before they beat him to a pulp.
- Divergent Character Evolution: They have their slight differences from Origin, but this really comes in to focus in the Lighter and Softer spinoff/sequel Extraordinarily United.
- Fanservice Extra: It's difficult to say that they are important to the plot becides the same "power of numbers" gimmick from Slisalime in Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group, but the army themselves could almost count as one character. Aside from some certain higher-rankers that are "sub-leaders" of sorts.
- Really Was Born Yesterday: None of them exised longer than the end-of-year Tomb period, as Origin could only "make" them after she got her fully-physical body. However, all of them act as adults, and have no trouble with understanding anything.
- Screw Yourself: Subverted, since they're apparently not related, even though they are made with the same Generator of sorts. And they make out with one-another all the time. One calls them "different computer programs coded by the same computer," with the Generator being the "computer."
- The Worf Effect: Averted. You'd think that being hundreds/millions/etc (their numbers are constantly growing) of fighters would mean that they're just a Red Shirt Army. But more often than not, they make for a powerful army of backup. The only times they've lost something, Carlson and Origin (the usual fighting duo) do not do any better just by themselves.
- You Are Number 6: The further Unitias go by "Unitia [number]," starting with Two. Carlson points out that "Origin" is more associated with zero than one, and the aformentioned first Unitia agrees; she'll take "Unitia One" as an alternate name and the Generator could be considered their "zeroth," she just thinks that Origin is a cooler title. She starts taking Unitia One or Prime as far more of a title towards the end, and even jokingly says that Carlson should call her it now (which he does). In a way, this reflects on her development: she sees herself as more of a "zero" near the beginning for her actions in the past and how she measures up compared to the Big Bad. But much like Carlson switching from silver to gold, she steps out of the shadow and figures out her place at the top.
Unitias are able to fuse, just like their "prototypes."
- 11th-Hour Superpower: Unitia Infinity. Specifically, it's the name given to all currently-existing Unitias fusing together — hypothetically, if One and Two had fused when it was just them, that would have been "Unitia Infinity," but whenever they fuse after the others are made, the result isn't. As that name requirement would imply, it would get harder to pull off combining all Unitias together. Which does have benefits becides the number as then the Generator can be slightly "merged" as well. Regardless, Unitia One manages to pull it off in the final battle, signifying the end of her character development (being able to "be at one with all [her] shades"), and even in the following weeks she's shown to fuse in to Infinity pretty well.
- Fusion Dance: As the name implies, Unitia Fusions are combinations of two or more Unitias.
- Mundane Utility: One of the most common uses for the Unitia Fusions is for having sex with Carlson, because fusions "last" longer than individual Unitias. According to him, they're also somehow better lovemakers.
- Summon A Bigger Fish: Unitia Infinity is ultimately the key to taking down the Eighth Circle. The resulting battle is an utter curb-stomp that makes even the earlygame's Unitia One finger flicks seem impressive by comparison.
The Grayscale Boomerang
Also called "Grayscale" for short. A mysterious object that Carlson ended up discovering halfway between his 14th and 15th birthdays (which is also around the time he started developing his ridiculous physical skills in addition to his mental skills). Specifically, it came from a glittering silver treasure chest that fell from the night sky. It can be controlled, but only by him, due to his "silver gene." While not confirmed to be sapient, neither the story nor Word of God specifically rule out that it is. Whether or not the boomerang has a mind of its own is up for the reader's interpretation.
The Generator/The "True" Unitia Origin
A mysterious giant stone/metal-like glowing slab/"soul being" that created Unitia One back in the Parallel. After becoming physical in the Eighth Circle's experiment, it ended up doubling the number of Unitias every twenty-four hours. Much like the Grayscale Boomerang, it's not a definitely sapient being, but it might be. And that "might" is supported by some of the traits it shows over the story, giving it enough character on its own.
Other Stellar Silver Knights MembersAntics resulted in Carlson and the Unitias no longer being an independant anti-crime team that the mayor just showers with approval and love; they became an "official organization" overseen by the very Prime Minister of Canada himself. This all started with Stella, who is considered one of the "main characters" along with Carlson and Unitia One themselves. As for the rest of these Knights... not so much.
"Side-Members" as a Whole
- Color-Coded Characters: The "secondary eight" are each given distinct colors. When listing in the "Main Sixteen Unitias," there would be overlap, except these are two "different spectrums" according to Word of God. Notice how these are the exact same colors as the Shiny Rocks, just in a different order. This is not a coincidence out-universe (it is one in-universe, though, which Stella lampshades); the story is leading up to them using the Rock of the respective color to gain/increase their powers and help fight the Eighth Circle.
- Stella: Black (she wears a bigger variety of colors than most other characters in this, but is usually seen with at least some black, or most often in just a black undershirt and nothing else. Her "default outfit" includes a gray shirt, which is significantly darker than Carlson's armor)
- Eldbrash: Blue
- Kameel: Purple
- Ruby: Red
- Leon: Yellow
- Hex: Green
- Transparaghost: Cyan
- Her Bone: Orange
- Overshadowed by Awesome: Sure, the "secondary eight" could make a pretty nice Badass Crew on their own... except that Carlson, as a parody of the trope, is leagues and bounds ahead of all of them. And then just one Unitia utterly outclasses them all.
A woman working at Stelkazh, a Starbucks-like counterpart (only with considerably more features and bizarre rules), who ends up crossing paths with Carlson and Unitia Origin when a group of thugs serving the Gatherer attack her on a date. With her being impressed by the duo and, to a lesser extent, visa-versa, they somewhat team up and she volunteers to take down some of the Demons. After an attack by Tony the Bear while Carlson and the Unitias leave for a "possibly important, possibly nothing" mission, Stella gets the idea to make them an official group — mainly after Mayor Green witnesses her battle with Tony the Bear and is impressed that other people do, in fact, stand a chance against the Demons. Of course, helping was that the gang also ended up partly "recruiting" the chilled water spirit Eldbrash.
- Acrofatic: She's a bit thicker than even her inspiration (possibly, it's hard to tell since Ordinarily United and Gravity Falls have drastically different art styles), but she's shown pulling off considerably more athletic feats. Her Establishing Character Moment is her beating up three thugs in a fancy restaurant that's high above the city, and she's nearly thrown out of the tower-building but clings on and leaps back in.
- Aesop Amnesia: Downplayed, as it's a deliberate plot element (that's mentioned a lot) that Stella forgets to make sure that an enemy she attacks is dead. This happens three times before the third time is so consequential that she actually takes care to memorize it for future battles, making absolute certain that her target is dead. Specifically, this happens to Tony the Bear after punting him across the street, [I need to think of another example], and Jiller just before the battle with the Gatherer.
- Ambiguously Brown: Like Carlson and her own inspiration, it's not exactly clear what race she is. Her last name is no help at all, as it's a completely made-up name that's just a play on "Fortissimo."
- Audience Surrogate: According to Great Pikmin Fan, she's supposed to be the main way that exposition about the Unitias and even Carlson is given to the readers after the first chapter, as even Carlson — the supposed "main lead" — has a lot of elements shrouded in mystery. If Stella finds something out, the audience does too.
- Badass Normal: By far the most important (well, part of it was her being the first) of the Powerlesses that make up the Stellar Silver Knights. Her establishing character moment is her beating three thugs more-or-less by herself (Ritch was trying to help, but was very ineffectual) and only taking one punch in the battle.
- Berserk Button:
- If you value your life, do not harm her Porn Stash. Seriously, it's something she values over her own house. Or car.
- She's also not very fond of lag. While most people don't like it, it's noteworthy for Stella because it's a way to make her outright fume. Which isn't common for her.
Stella: DAMMIT YOUTUBE, I CLICKED THREE TIMES AND YOU STILL WON'T PAUSE! DO YOU NOT KNOW WHAT THE FUCKING PAUSE BUTTON IS?!
Stella: N- NO! I DID NOT WANT TO GO FULL SCREEN, DAMMIT! I WANT YOU TO PAUSE! PAUSE!
Stella: Argh, fuck, the video's over, and now it's about to auto-play something. I clicked to turn the damn auto-play off, but you have to fucking wait for that or else it will come back on. Come on, don't load, don't load-
Stella: Oh, and it's another shitty top ten video. Now I need to nuke my cookies or I'll have thousands of recommendations for top tens.
Stella: And now the goddamn thing pauses!
- She really doesn't like people who are smug about being vegan/vegetarian, partly because her parents were extremely nature-concious and tried raising her with a vegetable, grain, and on the rare occasion fruit-based diet. Once she moved out and had her first bite of pizza, she never looked back, and does not want people to try to convince her that switching back is "the right thing."
- Beware the Silly Ones: When up with a six-foot-something literal knight in shining armor and an army of huge women that can make stuff out of nothing, Stella might seem downright pathetic compared to them. But she starts out as one of the biggest powerless badasses in the entire story and just grows from there, eventually managing to impress even the Prime Minister. She even lampshades this during her fight with Scale Breath, where she sees her reflection in one of the Demon's claws, and takes a moment to awe at how she was the exact same person that was "just" fighting three thugs at a fancy restaurant that was clear across the world (Stella, by the beginning, was also not much of a traveler).
- Big Beautiful Woman: Yeah, she's heavier than the norm. But the story treats her as roughly as fanservice-y as any of the other heroes (including the "more conventionally attractive" Her Bone and Transparaghost, the slim Ruby and Carlson, the buff Eldbrash and Kameel, the downright lanky Hex and Leon — Leon himself was at one point either going to be muscular like Eldbrash ended up being or fat on the lines of Stella, and the blatantly exaggerated proportions of the Unitias). In fact, she's the number one source of chubby fanservice in Ordinarily and especially Extraordinarily United.
- Empowered Badass Normal: In the finale, she uses the Black Shiny Rock to power up, along with the other "Main Eight" non-Carlson/Unitia Knights using a respective Rock that corresponds to their color-coding to work.
- Establishing Character Moment: She's on a date with this nervous-looking guy when three large, seemingly random thugs approach them, grabbing her by the Standard Female Grab Area. Her date tries to fight them back, but can't even get them to move. Stella barely seems concerned, similar to how Carlson barely cares about the Demons he's fighting. Suddenly, Stella breaks from the hold, kicks all three of their asses one-on-three with her batons, and even tries to sneak in a movie reference — the only time she gets hit is when she tries to be smart and insert a pop-culture joke mid-fight.
- Evil Costume Switch: Subverted. While she does swap to a more meanacing-looking costume when she and the other "Background Knights" become the Real Skies (complete with spikes), she's not evil or brainwashed. She does, however, take Carlson on in a fight to try to prove a point with Unitia One.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: By the beginning of the story, she's still a badass, yet she's ultimately "just" a coffee place worker that occasionally jogs, trains for combat, and can beat up a few thugs if things get heated. By the end, she's the leader of her own heroic organization, has a number of hard-hitting tools with her, and is the only completely powerless human being who has taken Carlson on in a fight and won. And keep in mind that even powerful monsters from the afterlife have lost to him.]] It reaches the point where Ninjssassin originally thinks that she's the joke of the team and the utmost weakest link; towards the Beam Duo Invasion arc, however, she starts treating Stella above the likes of even the Supers, and considers her a Carlson-level threat.
- Large Ham: The hammiest of the main trio/four. Compared to Carlson, that's an easy feat, but compared to Origin and Two, it isn't.
- Offscreen Teleportation: Subverted in Chapater 2. She seems to do this, suddenly showing up from point A to point B, but in the three times it's happened, she always has an explanation/established shortcut as to how she got there so fast.
- Platonic Life-Partners: With Carlson, although she does think he's attractive (but she likes the Unitias way more, which is implied by how much more often she gushes over them, and outright confirmed by Word of God). Him, not as much conciously. Subconciously, he ends up having erotic dreams about her later on — and he has erotic dreams about all of the other Knights.
- Punny Name: Her surname is a corruption of "Fortissimo," and Word of God is that the music term doesn't really mean anything other than to reference the character she was originally based on. And that she can be pretty loud some times.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: She doesn't see anything wrong with walking around in thin, tight, nearly see-through (and she has some pairs that are) yoga pants with no underwear. Or just hanging out naked if it's hot enough. She barely knows Carlson for a day yet goes around him completely nude. In her defense, she cites the Unitias walking around naked, Carlson also being naked at the time, and that they were planning on giving the house away to her anyway since her house was burned down by Swinging Blade.
- Shoo Out the Clowns: Stella plays with this trope a lot.
- In Chapter 5, Stella and the other non-harem Knights are sent on a mission while Carlson and the Unitias sit back and try to watch a Wavette marathon. Cryipasto attempts to invoke this, by saying that the gang doesn't have "that funny lil' Stella" to help tone down the "horror," and thus his scares would hit Carlson and Origin even harder. This turns out to be bullshit, as Carlson isn't scared in the slightest. Hell, he's enraged that he missed his favorite show and will have to Archive Binge it thanks to its status as something gigantic.
- Near the end of the Fuck the Jungle Arc, Stella's still in the picture, but she permanently leaves the group and takes out the comic relief-y other members of the Knights, who call themselves the Real Skies afterward. Carlson and the Unitias have to face characters like the Gatherer and Flower's Chest by themselves, not to mention the ongoing plot of him struggling to stay "supported" by the country when there are more heroes on the rise. Fan says that with there being less members of the Stellar Silver Knights proper, it's supposed to feel like the harem has less of a "security net." Stella accurately sums it up in her last words towards the team before she leaves and takes the bulk of the party with her:
Stella: You're on your own.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: She cusses more than any other major character in the story. And casually peppers some of her lines with swears, too.
- Start My Own: Annoyed that Unitia Origin lashed out revealing that she never actually saw her as a friend or even liked her, she took the other Knights not involved with the harem and split off to form the Real Skies.
- 10-Minute Retirement: Near the end of the time the team spent in Cooper Domain, she gets utterly fed up with Carlson and his "harem" after an increasingly heated argument with Unitia One. She technically quits and takes every non-Carlson and non-Unitia member with her; but it's really more like she kicks Carlson and the Unitias out. She just makes her own group under a new name because she thinks that Stellar Silver Knights fits them better than her. The trope is ultimately subverted after the Scale Breath fight. Even after she and Carlson "make up" from their fight, she still thinks that it's better for everyone if they stay as two seperate hero groups.
- The Thing That Would Not Leave: She slowly became this in Chapter 2 to Unitia Origin after "staying over" for several days in a row despite having her own perfectly good house that, if anything, is better than Carlson's house at the time (later in the story, Carlson practically gets his own castle, so that does not apply anymore). Although it was justified at first in that Swinging Blade burnt down her old house, within less than a day her insurance company managed to get her a new, even fancier house. Origin is the first to get fed up with her despite being the one who gave Stella her number and the way to get to the house in the first place. Carlson later minds her after she starts prodding at his and the Unitias' sex life and delving a bit too personally. Near the end of the chapter, especially after the events of Chapter 3 where the Unitias just flat-out make their own home that grows in to a colossal galaxy-city, they both lighten up towards her once she promises not to stay over excessively. Origin described Stella's problem as "being everywhere."
Unitia Origin: [This is probably not how the actual quote goes, unless I copy-pasted it without remembering.] I don't know how she does it exactly, but it feels like she's everywhere I look! Whatever room I enter or hallway I walk down... half the time, Stella's right there! Chewing something loudly, playing music loudly, playing video games loudly... I know we all do that, but this is our place. Stella's the guest,
- Took a Level in Badass: She was already pretty tough considering that the first thing she's seen doing is winning in a battle against three thugs who turn out to be magic criminals, and considering what one of her ex-lovers was like, but she could still be overpowered by a motorcycle-soul being. Towards the end of the story, she effortlessly takes down a dragon and manages to give Carlson a decent fight without a Shiny Rock. And then she whips out four of them on his ass.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Pizza, and she loves lemonade. This is to highlight her borderline womanchild nature, and like her inspiration, she hates her adult responsibilities. She notably also hates coffee because it reminds her of her "boring" job.
- Vapor Wear: As with almost every other major heroic character, she rarely wears undergarments (most of the others have plainly visible undergarments, but she's one of the former), and sometimes wears see-through clothes (albeit through being worn down, rather than an intentional design choice — she just picks what's comfortable and hates shopping for new clothes) that make this painfully obvious.
A "Chilled Water" Guardian first seen battling with Demon 11, Swinging Blade, after the latter infiltrates the area of the lake he's guarding to attack a random citizen.
- The Comically Serious: This guy rarely even cracks a smile, yet he's subjected to
- Elemental Baggage: Averted, he can create water out of practically nothing. But he is more effective with water actually there he can manipulate.
- Heart Is an Awesome Power: It's commented upon that "can make small globs of cold water" isn't too impressive compared to the Unitias being able to make anything out of pure magic (which can duplicate itself from nothing, so in effect they make matter out of nothing) or Carlson's razor-sharp Grayscale Boomerang, but he manages to make it all work.
- Making a Splash: He's a Chilled Water Guardian with water-based powers.
- Running Gag: In his introduction, every tiny thing Carlson and the Unitias do makes him feel like he owes his life to their combined group, which adds up to four "layers" of him owing the band. He will do four general requests provided by Carlson or the Unitias, and missions do not count. This annoys the hell out of most of the Unitias in general and Origin/One specifically, so she wants to blow them off on stupid things so that he won't feel in "debt" to her. In later chapters, she ends up making further actions that "adds" more "favors" back. This comes to an end when Stella breaks off the Real Skies from the Stellar Silver Knights. Eldbrash tries to come up with a Loophole Abuse saying that he "owed" the Knights, and that when Stella split she "took" the favors with her. Unitia One does not care at that point.
- Stripperiffic: His usual outfit consists of a bizarre complex of straps made of ice [hang on I need to look back, maybe edit Chapter 3 if I forgot this when I wrote that], but they just barely really cover him.
A former cop that was laid-off due to very drastic budget cuts after one of the demons blew up the city she works at. Desperate to find a job in any way similar to her previous skills, she joins the Knights. She has the ability to create short-distance portals, and can kick hard.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: As she is a "Sky Guardian," her skin is a very deep reddish pink, that borders on the line of "real skin tone (but highly flushed/with a 'sunburn')" and being flat-out fuchsia.
- Kick Chick: As it's in her "superheroine name."
- Overshadowed by Awesome: It's made more explicit with her than some of the others in how her skillset is close to being a direct, inferior version of the Unitias'.
A training "gothic" (but not really) telepath who has the ability to read minds and mind control other people. Unfortunately, what would have been an effective weapon against the demons is dampened by the fact that it can't work against the demons themselves. She also has the Tele-Staff, a weapon powered by her own psychic energy that can hurt things hard. Assuming she has the time to charge it in the first place.
- Awesome, but Impractical: Her Tele-Staff can break something even Carlson, a man with superhuman strength by default and a biological weakness to the soul beings, cannot. However, it takes three full days to charge. Unitia Two initially "shortens" it from 72 hours to 71, and later to a few seconds, but there's still a three-day wait between the first two times it's seen being used.
- Big Damn Heroes: Averted, but she thinks she's this at first. She ends up attacking Bricka to "save" Stella, Eldbrash, and Kameel in her introduction, but those three were already being overseen by the Unitias anyway, who could have just finger-flicked her if things were too dangerous.
- Boring, but Practical: She does not have telekinesis despite many people confusing her powers with telekinesis, but her mind-changing is pretty helpful despite not being a particularly exciting power and being unusable against demons. Her Tele-Staff is just a "hard-hitter," but it can blow holes in walls, so it's pretty damn effective.
- Stripperiffic: Her outfit might seem like a normal dress when looking at it from the front or side, but it's actually just two long cloths stuck to her shoulders and barely tied by a single string.
- Vapor Wear: she doesn't wear anything except for her two strips of cloth. Which becomes very obvious given that this story averts Magic Skirs and her back cloth flies back whenever she uses her Tele-Staff.
A werewolf-like transforming man that's powered by the Sun (he just needs a lot of direct sunlight) that can be a bit dense.
- Awesome, but Impractical: Compared to most of the other secondary Knights, his power seems outright impressive. Near-instant regeneration, he can grow to twice the size of a human being... he seems like a relatively smaller version of Revealica from Great Pikmin Fan's sister story. But he can only do so under direct sunlight. Simply putting an umbrella over him will reduce him to a powerless, naked state. And his whole body must be in sunlight (well, a lot, since it's physically impossible for every inch of him to be in sunlight without his own shadow covering him).
- Cloudcuckoolander: Dear lord, he's even worse than Stella in this regard.
- Expy: Of Fan's portrayal of the Captain from Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals. They're both loud, highly emotional manchildren that are actually powerful shape-shifters who can enter wolf forms. They are also used to fly other people around.
- Ironic Name: He's actually a werewolf, even though the name would indicate something along the lines of a cat-beast.
- Naked First Impression: The first we see of him is in a clothing store, asking if it is a clothing store. And we find out that it's because he's naked. Given that the Unitias are major characters, this isn't even that unusual to veterans of the story.
A "dimensional caster" former AI progran experiment that doesn't really have much an idea of what she's doing. She kind of wandered in to Carlson's place by accident.
- Green-Skinned Space Babe: She's from Earth, but her general 'digital' look gives her this appearance.
- Stripperiffic: The most she ever wears in the story is a pair of thin diamond-shaped pasties on her breasts and one over her crotch. And even then, she takes those off often.
- Verbal Tic: She by far has the biggest stuttering problem out of anyone in the whole webnovel. But this fades considerably when she's being seductive.
- You Are Number 6: It's later revealed that she's part of a series, that are each named roughly after numeric prefixes. The fact that her name is also a play on "hex" like a spell and that she's the first and most important of that group seen is a coincidence in-universe.
A medium that can focus on dead spirits, communicate with them, and fire large blasts of energy. Her code-name comes from her see-through outfit.
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Gets the distinction at first for being one of the few heroic/friendly characters that does not instantly hold Carlson as some sort of big hero, which he found a refreshing change of pace. Then Stella describes him by talking about how "atypical" he is compared to some other people. Stella describes him in a similar way a writer or reviewer would describe a character in a story.
- Stripperiffic: Just some see-through cloths, especially considering how the lower part of the outfit barely even covers her if it were opaque.
A chimera (in the sense of having two sets of cell-types, not in the sense of the mythical being) with the ability to near-limitlessly grow and regenerate teeth and bone matter.
Various people with no powers who joined up anyway. Most of them
- Fanservice Extra: A good number of them, male or female, do not dress in very much. Thongs are a very common outfit among them. Some of them go around in see-through clothing, just like Transparaghost.
Other Various Supers, Etc
Tangersine [Might cut this character out completely, I can't think of anything to do with her becides mocking the "one member of the group is a kid" thing and Icesky and Tanker already do that in 361 Striking Degrees and Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group respectively, so it's just beating a dead horse. Fudge, Hex might even have her planned ability of shielding and stuff.]
A young girl that is a geometrical expert who can fire laser beams and put up energy shields. Unfortunately, due to being a kid, Carlson has strong objections to her serving in battle with him. Especically since she is nowhere near as good at her powers as she thinks.
- Awesome, but Impractical: Her ability to both create energy shields and laser blasts would be a godscend, especially since she can effortlessly do both at the same time. However, not only do her blasts not to much against demons (her shield, on the other hand, could cut some of the weaker ones in two), but she has a very limited range which she can use them. Her "barrier" is far from a sphere at all, and is more of wedge shape.
- Butt-Monkey: Very little goes her way. She
- Kid Hero: Deconstructed. Ordinarily United
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Everyone in the gang wants her out of the battlefield given that it would not be appropriate to have her out there. Given that she's a kid and this story is... well... definitely not child-friendly, it seems like they're talking about the audience of the story itself at times.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Word of God is that he wanted to create a young girl character with an ego, but intentionally so that her ego does not come off as amusing and instead very obnoxious. She's very rarely not seen being smug and she even wants to become the mascot of the group even though they all do considerably more work than she does. And she thinks she'll be the one who can kill the Eighth Circle, one on one. It says a lot that Carlson openly (if reluctantly) admits that he finds Hoodieath to be far more mellow of a person to be around. Although he feels the same way when comparing Hoodieath to Leon, too.
- Start My Own: Her atittude after being rejected by the Knights. It's not going so well... however, she ends up with an extremely powerful "lava spirit" late in the story that dwarfs Eldbrash's water spirit powers.
An American Football-themed superhero that "respectfully disagrees" with Carlson's approach to heroics and wants to start his own branch, which relieves Carlson due to him being his own leader. His specialty is cloning himself. Aside from kind of having Tangersine as a recruit, he has little to no such luck gathering other supers or even just regular people in costumes.
- Color-Coded Characters: His uniform has a lot of red and green. He's mainly associated with the latter color.
- Eagleland: He mostly fits with a "The Beautiful" American stereotype (football, associated with space, has a freedom X, strong link with horses and lassos), with some things that clash against it (overly bright green coloration, his low voice, obsession with baking, etc). Odd is that this is an American-written story that mostly takes place in Canada.
- Fantastic Racism: His true reason for rejecting Carlson's offer to join the Knights is because of Carlson Uniting with a demon a year ago. He's fairly certain that Unitia Origin is going to betray Carlson at some point, if not soon then right at the very end after Eighth Circle's defeat.
- Me's a Crowd: Averted. He says that he wants to share the responsibility with his clones, rather than use them to get tools across. He is a firm believer in Clones Are People, Too, although that applies more towards the Unitias (the "clone" term is debatable) than his own copies.
- Oh, Crap!: There's a lot of moments where he just goes "Aw... fuck."
- When meeting Eldbrash for the first time, and finding out that he's more buff than him.
- The Quiet One: When he does speak, it's in a low voice that's described as barely being louder than a whisper.
- Tesosterone Poisoning: Subverted. He might be geared as this given his American Football motif, but he's not nearly as much of a "manly parody" in the same lines as Eldbrash or, to a lesser extent, Leon.
- Vocal Dissonance: At a glance, everything abou this guy screams "ultra-macho manly man." Which is why his soft voice that most people can barely hear comes off as a jarring contrast.
A woman with "cloth powers" that goes around in nothing but a hoodie and a pair of panties. She is extremely opposed to nudity-related censorship in media and will blow a fuse over bowdlerization. She is also powerful, but her main focus is on fighting censorship rather than killing the demons. Her saving Carlson's entire group from an especially tough demon convinces Carlson to try looking for her, which is the basis of its own entire arc.
- The Ace: Possibly even better than Carlson himself. She's just too self-absorbed and cares more about Double Standards in portraying nudity in fiction than she is about genuine heroism.
- Ambiguously Gay: She has a strange fixation on "toning up" on nudity, but she almost exclusively talks about censorship of female nudity. One could say that it's because it's far more noticeable, but there's still the whole layer over how much she's doing this just for her own sexual interests. She has never shown any attraction to any other character. Notably, Word of God is that Carlson, Stella, and the Unitias are all bi (but the former two prefer women), but he has yet to comment on other characters, saying that it "doesn't really matter." Hoodieath included.
- Berserk Button: She just barely doesn't qualify as having a Hair-Trigger Temper, but she's close. Here's the tip of the iceberg on what pisses her off:
- Establishing Character Moment: Manages to even save Carlson. However, the first words out of her mouth are angry ranting at Assily Blast. Not because he was trying to beat Carlson to death, but because of how it's more okay for men to be seen naked like AB is than women, and she starts rambling about a hypothetical situation where some TV series would be more willing to accept AB's design if he were a man... before realizing that she's also talking about someone on the toilet, and gets squicked out imagining a sexualized character taking a dump.
- Everyone Has Standards: She might be saving her world-saving skills for just trying to get her message across, but at least she does something other than making fun of groups of people on the internet. She really doesn't like those "Street-Corner Guys" that mainly just insult various characters (except Stella, because she draws their ideal type of porn more often than she goes around naked in real life) for being "offended." You'd think there would be some overlap, right? They dismis her as a Straw Feminist despite the two parties almost being on the same side. All Hoodieath's response is is this:
Hoodieath: Do you guys have anything better to do than say the same five words at everyone? Get a fucking life.
- Exotic Eye Designs: Her pupils are shaped like tildes for some reason, supposedly representing curved threads.
- A pink-haired Action Girl that runs around with her undergarments exposed, seems like a loose moral cannon, and at one point manages to land an attack on the main lead's ear (but does not sever it). She's another one of Fan's references to Brenda, and a chunk of her "more powerful than the main characters yet cares more about social issues than physical war" is similar to Diane Mohdez, who was something of a Brenda expy as well. She just talks more than Diane (and far more than Brenda) and is a lot more rude, aggressive, and solitary.
- If the Unitias are of the way .GIFfany was presented in Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage and Escape From Fanservice Island (turning from a single AI yandere -> an army of fanservice-y black magic warriors that help out the main characters and build a cool city from scratch), then she's closer in terms of personality to her Ultimate portrayal, as someone who will flat-out not shut up about the way female nudity is censored/age-restricted in television and games way more than male nudity, yet is regardless one of the strongest characters in the story.
- Foreshadowing: She's hinted at back near the end of Chapter 2, when Carlson talks about the comic he's reading (and obvious reference to Gravity Falls, specifically a pseudo-sequel to "Soos and the Real Girl"). Back then he thought she was just some random ranter on the Internet. Two entire arcs later, when they finally meet in-person, Carlson manages to recognize her as "that angry obsessive woman who doesn't wear pants."
- Grammar Nazi: Has a short temper about improper writing. Bad English pisses her off more than bad science pisses off the Unitias.
Hoodieath, typing: NOT EVERY SENTENCE ENDS IN A QUESTION MARK.
DON'T USE "LITERALLY" AS EMPHASIS.
AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AT LEAST CAPITALIZE THE FIRST WORD OF EACH SENTENCE. CAPITALIZING NAMES AND THE WORD "I" WILL NOT LITERALLY KILL YOU EITHER.
AND THAT'S PROPER USE OF THE WORD "LITERALLY," BECAUSE I AM SAYING IT WILL NOT KILL YOU.
Unitia Two: Are you sure those aren't exclamations?
- Jerkass: Carlson openly points this out on her introduction. That she would actually like to fight off the demons and keep the population safe, but she's deliberately witholding doing so unless televsion and film meet with her demands and loosen their "strict" standards on rating based on nudity. She even outright shoves Eldbrash in to conflict to make him save a kid even though she was considerably closer and far more qualified herself. Carlson bluntly states "Oh, so you're an asshole then." and she doesn't even try to challenge it.
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall:
- One of her rants about censorship is when female nudity is only mostly shown from the neck/shoulders up. Guess how much of her is showing in that panel.
- The story at first seems to be hiding her breasts with her jacket once she unzips it, but then she complains about "magic breast-glue clothes and hair" and the very next panel (at the end of one page) exposes her areola. The next page after that is a full bust shot as they just kind of slip out. And no, neither she nor her opponent specifically opened her top.
- Punny Name: Hoodie + death. Given that she's one of the most powerful characters in the story, the name makes a lot of sense.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: She only wears the hoodie in the first place as a weapon, and the panties to make some sort of statement against overly-blatant Magic Skirts in fiction.
- Shock and Awe: One of her many sub-weapons is an electrical adjustment strap that resembles a pair of wires.
- Story-Breaker Power: Her main feat is that she can "store damage" so that it all adds up and comes at the opponent at once as a major attack. For example, if she uses this technique to strike someone twice, rather than feeling two strikes, they will feel a single strike that is twice as powerful. It's implied that the limit is only based on a time limit she has in "storage mode," but she can practice to both extend that time limit and pull off more hits in a given period. Oh, and this is on top of her already having serious Super Strength in a story where such a thing is oddly rare. With just 32 stored hits, she was able to push Assily Blast down to the mantle of the planet. And she stated that she can deal up to 256 stored hits. The Eighth Circle implied that a 256 stored-hit attack would probably be enough to blow off a limb of his, which is an extremely impressive feat in this story's world.
- Vapor Wear: She wears nothing under her hoodie. The webcomic parodies this when she actually opens it up due to the heat, where at first it seems to defy gravity and wind force (she's fighting against a demon that technically uses wind, Assily Blast) to keep her nipples covered, but then in one small panel her areola slips out. And in the next page, her hoodie stops magically covering her breasts.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Pink.
- Awesome, but Impractical: The eyebeams that he's codenamed after are apparently hotter than the outer layer of the Sun, and are fired in gigantic beams. His other powers, such as his "absolute zero breath" and "iron punch," are also ridiculously powerful. The one obvious downside is that he causes a great amount of property damage.
- Does Not Know His Own Strength: Unlike the Unitias, which can generally keep things with minimal side-damage, this guy pretty much destroys every arena he battles in. There's a reason why he's never called to save cities (and why it's instead Carlson that is primary regarded as humanity's greatest hero prior to the Knights settling in general), and only used as an absolute last resort. Notably, he's not stupid, he just has a poor time contstraining his powers.
- Lonely at the Top: He went from rags to riches but he's so lonely that even his own building has several useless floors with nobody in them. He doesn't even have secuirty guards, as his six robots do a pretty good job at that.
- Mythology Gag: His name came from a deliberate typo in Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage writing "Patreon" as "Petereon," and that was named after Peter Griffin. Fittingly, he looks kind of like Peter, and he mentions a site an awful lot like Patreon briefly, although he's more of a comment on official anime with heavy censoring that a blu ray release lacks than he is about web artists who use Patreon.
The 100 DemonsA year before the events of the story, one hundred strange buildings known as "Tombs" (by the demons) appeared on the world, coming out of strange purple portals.
The Demons in General
- Arc Villain: The Shiny Rock Holders.
- Swinging Blade is the only aversion, as the Trio Introduction Arc is more about introducing the "trio" of Carlson, Unitia One, and Stella than it is about fighting any one specific Demon group, and he's one of the few Holders that has nothing resembling a gang. Still, he's the first of the Rock Holders to be mentioned by-name, is talked about in both of the chapters before he's faced off against, has a large impact in destroying Stella's old house, and his "fight" with Carlson and the Unitias was a wake up call that finaly let Carlson realize, along with "sensing" the sheer power coming from the Eighth Circle for the first time, that real strong enemies were indeed out there.
- Blazing Fast is the main focus-Demon of the Building the Knights Arc, although he has little to do with the introduction of the side-Knight characters so much as he's tied to both Carlson and Unitia One's character growth. To a lesser extent, Stella's, as he's introduced around the time where it's really hammered in that while Carlson and the Unitias see almost all of the Hundred Demons as jokes, that does not mean Stella would have an easy time with them.
- Assily Blast is one of the major villains of the New Wave of Heroes Arc, although he shares this role with the Inventor. His Curb-Stomp Battle with Carlson and Hoodieath saving his life from him
- Flower's Chest takes note for being one of the few Holders seen before her arc (along with Ninjssassin), is the leader of a powerful and relatively big Demon gang, and turns out to not be the "real" arc villain as DEATH MECHA hijacks that role from her.
- Back for the Dead: In-universe, the first few of the Demons taken out had just been "given life" for the first time in the sense that they have physical bodies. Yet Carlson/the Unitias/Stella took them down.
- Development Gag: Swinging Blade, Blazing Fast, Assily Blast, DEATH MECHA, Scale Breath, Girlaser, Dudenergy, and the Eighth Circle were all part of the original group from a planned prototype of this (the Unitias were also part of the group). It's no coincidence that those Demons are usually faced as major "checkpoints" often being at the end of an arc. Or, in the case of Assily Blast, the beginning of an arc... and be re-fought at the end. Also, these Demons, minus Eighth Circle and plus Ninjssassin, are the Shiny Rock holders.
- Fan Disservice:
- With the exceptions of Blazing Fast and Unitia Origin (who is downplayed enough to at least count as fanservice to a "broader" audience), most of the humanoid demons have some kind of bizarre, hyper-"sexualized" element to them, and are usually mixed with inhumanoid features. Also, most of them are bloodthirsty.
- Full-Frontal Assault: Each and every single demon attacks butt-naked. Most of them don't really have any strong opinions on clothing either way, but the Unitias hate them, and Word of God is that they will never end up in a permanent outfit, or if they get clothes in the first place (a big if), it won't even last a quarter of a chapter.
- Gag Boobs: Several of the female soul being species have this. Most of the exceptions are ones that do not have even remotely humanoid bodies, like Bricka.
- Gag Penis: Implied with most of the male soul being species.
- Gender-Equal Ensemble: There are 50 male demons and 50 female demons in the group, which is a coincidence in-universe. Oddly, this is one of the few times Great Pikmin Fan played this trope straight, as even in this very story he intentionally wanted an unbalanced ratio with the Knights (there are usually more plot-important women than men, Unitias not counted). The Unitias can sex-shift, but they still identify as female, are counted as the 50 females (or technically, only Origin; the 100 does not count clones or creations as their numbers, and the other Unitias are the latter). "Balancing" that is that one of the other demons, Shasiffift, identifies as male by default and can sex-shift as well.
- Horny Devils: They have some elements of this, particularly the Unitias. They do bear rather grotesque and exaggerated sexual feaures (most of them), but Origin claims that most of them could modify themselves to be "more seductive." While they get great nourishment from eating any part of a human (IE blood-drinking), by far the best for them is sexual fluids, which typically does not involve ripping the person open as drinking blood or other fluids would.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Unitia Origin wrote a list of all of them, from memory (which is eidetic). She notes the male demons with blue, and the female demons with red. In a meta sense, Fan says that this is also how he quickly tells their gender in his own cheat sheet, which he posted once every single demon was revealed.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Part of the story's One-Punch Man inspiration shows in that a number of the demons are killed off shortly after their introduction, especially when Carlson fights the weaker ones. Word of God is that he will reveal the numbers, titles, and appearances of them all, but that does not mean that there won't be some that fail to show off a decent fight before they're killed. Extraordinarily subverts this by showing some more side-adventures with them.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Group 11 elements. Copper's good for a general scratch-maker, silver can work in emergencies, they're outright weak to gold, and roentgenium apparently works wonders against them... but good luck getting your hands on the latter element and putting to use given its unstable form. [I'm not sure how much of this I want to be in the final story... the stuff about Carlson using gold originally can probably be scrapped.] Carlson originally used gold against them, but switched to silver because gold was feeling too easy. As he encountered harder demons, he understood how bad of an idea that was. Also, with the exception of copper, these elements are rather stupididly rare at the time of the demon invasion (mostly as a certain mayor funded construction for a gigantic gold statue of himself that people find just seemingly will not melt), making it an inversion of Kryptonite Is Everywhere.
1. The Eighth Circle/Fred
[There might be some contradicting details as he was originally planned to be a legitimate asshole, just a lazy one that came off more like a sit-com character. It wasn't until a bit later that I wanted him to be a villain that was unambiguously in the wrong, yet context aside comes off like a genuinely nice and friendly guy.] The leader and founder of the Hundred Demons, he's a highly-intelligent soul being that got a bit tired of "living" an eternity (or, specifically, just nineteen years) in the Parallel and actively wanted to make a way to get living bodies to live in a less-crowded planet. As space travel was very difficult in the Parallel's universe without a physical body, he started the Tomb project, which uses a very specific form of magic to give the souls bodies. While he was at it, he decided to travel to Earth specifically. The idea first came to him when a certain past lover told him what Earth was long ago, when he was just created and years before they even entered a relationship. He is a bearded, heavyset red man with, by far, the closest to a "typical" Devil appearance — horns, tail, the works, and even owns a giant cape and a pitchfork. His default size is roughly around that of Australia, but when exploring the planet in detail, he takes on a more human-like size. Unlike the entire rest of the Hundred Demons (except Unitia One/Origin, the "traitor"), he does not attack humanity at all — he is very lazy, so he effectively spends his time goofing off, swimming around at "The Pit" (a location near Antartica where his Tomb landed, and proceeded to cause a giant crater in Earth), or entering his human size to watch the wildlife up close. He will not become "active" until every single other Demon is either dead, a betrayer/traitor, or goes inactive themselves. Until then, however, attacking him is very difficult — the guy turns out to have Carlson and Unitia-level "overpoweredness," which includes a heavy durability and immunity to what is otherwise the one and only definite weakness of the soul beings. Finally, he's Unitia Origin's last ex prior to meeting and dating Carlson.
- Affably Evil: He wants to conquer the planet. And he's the size of Australia. But he acts like some sort of laid-back, done-with-this-shit sitcom character. The very first words he says to Carlson? "Sup, dude." When he, Carlson, and Unitia One are all at the exact same place for the first time (second if one counts how horizontally close they were when Unitia One took Carlson to see the Eighth Circle underwater for the first time, although One was several miles above both of them while Carlson was down, and Eighth Circle was several miles below both of them), he even offers both of them a drink and calmly explains his situation, saying outright that he does not want to resort to violence against Unitia One or Carlson, after getting to know him, unless he's absolutely forced in to it.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: His skin is red, one of the many "Satan-like" elements to his appearance.
- Anti-Villain: Of the "Noble" type. In stark contrast to nearly all of the other Hundred Demons, he just sees the gang as casually displacing humanity to another part of the afterlife so that they can have an entire non-crowded planet to themselves. Even going by this logic, his actions are at absolute best a forceful eviction, but it's hard to deny that he genuinely cares about the wellbeing of the planet.
- Apologetic Attacker: The entire web book leading up to his battle is more-or-less him stalling his fight with Unitia One, as his lifelong (literally; the idea of going to Earth has been on his mind since Unitia One told him about it the day he spawned in to existence) dream of taking the planet conflicts with what his ex last wanted before the breakup. It's clear that he's very hesitant to go through with fighting Carlson and Unitia One at all, as his attacks generally get weaker and weaker until his Berserk Button is pressed.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the leader because he founded the whole project to bring soul beings with "permanent" bodies that, rather than deteriorating, are only destroyed through violence. He also happens to be the most powerful by a long shot, to the point where even the brainy and never-forgetting Unitia One struggles to think about who is the strongest after him and her when Blazing Fast asks.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Oh holy fucking hell, this guy when in his "human-size" and taken out of context does not seem even remotely threatening. He's polite (even to humans), goofy, says everything in a casual tone, and none of this is really an act. He's also extremely reluctant to harm the Unitias, as he dated Unitia One, she broke up with him over his want to wipe out humanity and take over the planet, yet his feelings for her get in the way of his combat. But there's a damn good reason why even the Unitias think he's nearly impossible to beat. He could wipe out entire planets with the blink of an eye if he wanted to (he does not destroy Earth because taking over the physical world itself is his goal, so that would ruin it), his default size is the size of Australia, and he has high regeneration on top of that.
- Big Bad: He's the leader of the Hundred Demon invasion project; the other 99 Demons are all his lackies (sort of), with the exception of 100% clear-cut traitor Unitia Origin/Unitia One. He's the most powerful of them all, but he keeps himself locked in the ocean in a way that not even Carlson could easily get to, waiting to be faced at the very end of the story. Although he does rarely leave the ocean, mostly just to sightsee a bit and plant flowers.
- Big Red Devil: His default appearance. Out of the Hundred, he by far fits the closest description to a "Hollywood" portrayal of Satan, with the red skin, horns, tail, and even donning a pitchfork.
- Blue and Orange Morality: He justifies his end goal of human genocide by saying that Death Is Cheap; he managed to bring life to one hundred beings that technically did not have it in the first place, proving that death is hypothetically not permanent, and humans could possibly devise a similar method to the Tombs in their (unknown) sector of the afterlife, especially since the materials Tombs are made out of is apparently a constant across the soul world. The only gray area is that humans do not go to the exact same sector of the afterlife as soul beings, and their destination is a mystery, but the ending implies that Unitia Two had finally figured out. Gatherer also mentioned in her last words that she somehow already knew about the afterlife Earthlings are sent to, but this was never elaborated upon during Ordinarily.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He has chronic getting backstabbed disorder: Unitia Origin is the most obvious and biggest rebel (who was only pretending to support him in order to have a reliable, "fast" (compared to other methods of travel) way to Earth); but the demons that United with Gatherer are additional rebels as they work completely against his own plans to take over humanity. Then there's the Single Digits, who believe that they are so special that they're above Eighth Circle... because Eighth Circle himself picked them before anyone else.
- Color-Coded Characters: Blood red, just like the Blood King — the Big Bad of GPF's "sister story" to this, Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group. It's all a red herring. He's not nearly as bloodthirsty or violent as the choice of color would imply.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: There's a damn good reason why Unitia Origin keeps insisting that Carlson takes him seriously. The guy may be a lazy goof, but he's also an utter ass-kicker. He can even blow up freaking planets, when he's not even at his current power level.
- Establishing Character Moment: Outside of a flashback in the first chapter, his debut is when Carlson drops deep in to the Pit and sees him in person. He's stated to have shrunk yet he's still so enormous that Carlson can only see his pupil even when using special Unitia-made cameras that can show much wider angles. He telepathically speaks to Carlson and hijacks the Unit-Chat, yet he just introduces himself to Carlson and tries to reassure that his wipe-out of humanity will just send him to a better place. Rather than considering the Unitias traitors when he figures out that they're the ones in the Unit-Chat, he denies what he's been explicitely told by some of the other Demons (he's the only one that does not believe they are rebelling for a good while, which sticks out considering how most of the Demons who saw Unitia One by this point call her a traitor or something along those lines) and instead thinks Unitia One might be trying to take her back.
- Evil Counterpart: To Carlson. Both of them are considered "special" and "chosen" by their respective species, and are specifically "selected" for attacking the other party. Both of them want to get a group of others to share the task they are expected to do, yet were bored with everything being "too easy" prior. Both are also great at nearly everything they try. However, while Carlson grows to genuinely fear his safety and wants backup so that they can help him stay alive (mainly since the third arc, but there's traces of this in the second arc as the "secondary seven" are added and Carlson prepares to fight Blazing Fast), Eighth Circle is just lazy and wants other demons to do the work for him (which is why he refuses to go out on the battlefield until they're down to just him). Carlson's pressure is on defending, Eighth Circle's pressure is on attacking.
- While six of the "major Demons" are inspired by the Seven Evil Exes as explained by Word of God, this guy might seem like he'd fit in where Gideon is. (Bonus points for being the only Demon who is an actual ex to the technicolor-haired heroine, although this is pointed out in Chapter 3 when Carlson asks if Unitia One's fixation on Swinging Blade at the time is because if they used to date) In reality, he's more like Asgore Dreemurr from Undertale: both are invoked Devil figure-like characters who are built up ominously yet turn out to be much nicer than others in the story imply. Especially their exes. For that matter, the Unitias — Origin/One especially — share a bit with Toriel. Eighth Circle's battle is preceeded by eight containers holding the Shiny Rocks appearing through the ground, in the same manner as the soul containers from Undertale before the fight with Asgore, as a Shout-Out to further the nod.
- GPF also took a few cues from Rando later on in the story. They started off as soft-spoken guys who look up to one of the main characters of the story proper, and ended up becoming extremely powerful leaders of their respective armies. Both of them
- Fan Disservice: Ever wanted to see the ass of a large, not exactly in-shape man? Especially up very close, given that he's the size of a continent usually? No? Well, too bad. Just about every flashback with him in it focuses on his ass; although he spends most of his appearances in the present lying down on his back.
- Final Boss, New Dimension: Like the Unitias with their Unit-Verses, he has his own "Circleverse" pocket dimension, which he deliberately makes colorful just because he likes the look. The final battle with him goes from flipping betweem the equally-colorcul "shared" Unit-verse and Earth's dimension to ending up firmly in his Circleverse... and briefly even crossing in to the Parallel, marking the first time Carlson's actully been to the place. It turns out he goes through everything, as none of it is physical.
- From a Single Cell: His regeneration is so impressive that it even makes the Unitias' and Inventor's healing skills look like shit in comparison. He can apparently regenerate from atoms, in a matter of seconds.
- Full-Frontal Assault: Inverted. The fact that he's one of the very few soul beings as a whole, let alone of the Hundred Demons specifically, that is willing to wear clothes "regularly" in the first place should feel jarring and alarming at first. Especially since it's not a "gag" outfit such as Res's wizard costume or PETAL SQUAD FORCE's over-the-top Super Sentai/Hank Hill/Mario blends. Before his battle, he puts on a cloak that covers his entire body, and looks a hell of a lot more ominous than being a naked fat man.
- Go Out with a Smile: He happily accepts his defeat and says that he feels relieved that "Yunney" found happiness with Carlson.
- Horned Humanoid: One of his several "Hollywood Devil" traits.
- Kavorka Man: Not that much of the looker, but he apparently slept with a lot of demons back in the Parallel/Soul World. Including Unitia Origin/One, although that was a genuine relationship. The only one that left him heartbroken when it ended.
- Knight of Cerebus: Inverted. The Fuck the Jungle Arc and the Hoodieath Search Arc both make it seem like the story is about to finally go full Cerebus Syndrome, with the lighthearted moments slowly dwindling and genuinely powerful demons starting to emerge. Then we find out more about the main villain, and he's almost impossible to take seriously. And the humor starts to return. This was all apparently intentional, to highlight what a lazy ass he is and how he can diffuse any tension just by opening his mouth and talking.
- Large and in Charge: He's the size of Ausralia, and the leader of the 100.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Demon #1: The Eighth Circle. Although his real name is Fred and both "Demon #1" and "The Eighth Circle" are titles he gave himself, both are still really good indicators that he's not the sort of person one would want piss off. Nevermind that it's difficult to piss him off in the first place.
- Nice Guy: He's probably one of the nicest characters in the entire story, just considering how he is around the other soul beings and leaving out the... human-extinction/genocide. To the point where, despite knowing full well that they want to kill him, he tries to chat up Carlson and Unitia One several times over the course.
- No-Sell: He's completely immune to Group 11 elements, the usual weakness of other demons. Even the one and biggest saving grace won't work against him.
- Non-Indicative Name: His "name" is actually a reference to his power level. He is not a circle, and he is not eighth in a line of other "Circles." He simply reached enough power to be considered in the "Eighth Circle of Power," according to him.
- Power Levels: He explains that his title correlates to how much power he has "ascended." He started out as the First Circle, but grew and changed his title accordingly. Should he "ascend" to the Ninth Circle, he will become completely invincible and omnipotent. Apparently.
- Psychopathic Manchild: Downplayed. He treats the destruction of humanity as an elementary schooler would to an annoying homework assignment, but aside from that he seems to act perfectly reasonable.
- Satanic Archetype: He's huge (even in his "human sized" form), red, has horns and a tail, is naked, and leads a group of beings from a section of the afterlife that call themselves the "Demons." His self-given title is inspired loosely by Dante's Inferno, although Fan admits that any actual resemblance to the Nine Circles of Hell is a coincidence. He's the Big Bad of them all and was intentionally designed to, out of the entire one hundred, by far look the most like a "typical" devil figure. Which makes his genuinely nice personality come off as jarring.
- Shipper on Deck: While he's still heartbroken over Unitia One breaking up with him over their different opinions on humanity, he's generally mature about it and accepts that she found new love with Carlson. He openly says that he's happy for the two of them, and midway through the final battle, he finally learned from his one big mistake.
Eighth Circle: Look... she might think otherwise, but Unitia One really is a great person. Don't let her go, okay? I mean it when I say that I want you two to be happy. Please... don't make a mistake like I did. I was an idiot.
Carlson: ...Okay? I mean, it's not like I'm planning genocide or anything...
- Sloth: The main reason why he generally sticks to his Tomb despite having the potential to chop the planet in half? He's "just a really lazy asshole," in Unitia Origin's words. Also, he just wants humanity gone — he does not want to harm any other species unless absolutely necessary.
- Tom the Dark Lord: His real name is Fred. He's also the only demon of the 100 with a completely "regular" Earth name that's not some kind of corruption. Unlike everyone else, "Eighth Circle" is just a title.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: "Kid" is not an accurate title as soul beings are born as adults and do not age. But holy shit, the Eighth Circle was a teddy bear (and not like Tony, either) right up until he got the idea to try to replace human life with his own and the lives of the other ninety-nine soul beings lucky enough to come to the world. He and Unitia Origin ended up bonding together right when she was starting to feel guilt for her past actions and he went through the loss of his job, home, friends, and everything that mattered to him.
- Walking Spoiler: Mainly for subverting the expectations one would usually have for the Big Bad, by not being the typical "quiet, sadistic person who wants to wipe out humanity just because" by a mile.
- The Worf Effect: Inverted. Right before the final showdown with him, Apocalytalvin, an outsider soul being that's made appearances in the previous arc, suddenly shows up to try to hijack the plot and act as a more "serious villain," growing to be bigger than the planet. Eighth Circle is not intimidated at all and instantly kills him with a single finger flick (which, as it's revealed shortly after, he got from Unitia Origin — who dispatches most of the Demons she fights with a similar move), getting a completely shocked reaction out of Carlson and a slightly surprised reaction from the Unitias.
- Younger Than They Look: He looks and acts like someone well in his thirties or even forties. He's actually the youngest of the "overpowered trio" consisting of himself, Carlson, and the Unitias, as he's only existed for nineteen years. This is justified in that soul beings are generated as adults and do not age, and while he's one of the ones that can shape-shift it's lightly suggested (Fan's not sure if he wants this to be a hard rule or not, which is why it has yet to be stated outright) that shape-shifters feel more comfortable in their "default" forms.
- Eldritch Abomination: Subverted. She certainly looks like your typical tentacle horror, but actually has no real advanced powers becides pretty good combat skills and is one of the tamest Demons ability-wise in the entire story. Especially noteworthy since she's built up since Chapter 3 as a colossal threat at first.
5. Tony the Bear
- Butt-Monkey: Not only does Stella refuse to take him seriously even after he Turns Red, but Carlson takes him even less so and laughs when he sees video footage of Stella more-or-less spanking him to death (not in an intentional way, it was the most convenient way to get rid of him considering how he was stuck... inside the very wall he tried to tear through). It's also contantly pointed out late in the story that he's the only single-digit numbered member (becides Unitia Origin) who is not fought near the end,
- The Comically Serious: He tries his hardest to get people to take him seriously. But, like with most of the Demons, he looks ridiculous.
- Epic Fail: Stella laughs her ass off when he tries to tear through a wall just to get stuck in it.
- Hypocritical Humor: For a guy who insults Stella's weight, he answers to a chubby Demon specifically, and both of them answer to the Eighth Circle, who also appears to be a bit heavy. In addition to that, his own body is too damn big (albeit through muscle mass) to even fit in doors, and his size-shifting causes a ton or problems with him either being too big or too small for a given task.
- Killer Teady Bear: Although he's an extremely unthreatening and pathetic one. The Demon Stella fought before him, what can best be described as a target monster, came off as a bigger struggle than he did. (Chrologically, the fight with Tony took longer than the fight with Cowiris, but that's counting the times Stella was just laughing at him and when he was outright running away.)
- Politically Incorrect Villain: Unlike most of the Demons, who are generally neutral towards whatever type of opponent they face against, this guy really has it out for overweight people for some reason (which is suicidally stupid as his definite boss (Eighth Circle) and unofficial "small group" boss (Ninjssassin) are both fat to varrying degrees), deliberately goes out of his way to piss off the physically disabled, and after Ninjssassin fires him and Stella gets a few baton-whacks in he takes his anger out on women in general.
- Starter Villain: In the sense that he's the first demon to be the focus of a whole chapter (the third one), while the first chapter was divided a lot between different heroes taking down different demons (Carlson and Origin's fight against Dagger in the first chapter, which also covered general exposition; the second chapter had flashbacks of some of the demons Carlson and Origin fought pre-Dagger, Stella's introduction, and ended with some more random one-off fights). He's slightly more threatening than the previously-seen hostile demons, but only slightly. And he's small potatoes compared to the later demons.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: This poor schmuck thinks he's in a demon-based horror story played completely straight, and even openly announces so when he's stalking his victims. He's actually in a Deconstructive Parody of shonen/ecchi (Fan admitted that originally many of the demons were going to loosely be horror/horror-monster themed, but he gave up on that and made sillier villains that would not seem out of place working under BLOODSHOT from Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group), but it's not the kind of deconstruction where there isn't a guy that could easily kick his ass.
6. Mount. Man
- Mythology Gag: His name has the same general deliberately bad "mountain" pun as "Mount. Tan" from i can't draw, GPF's experimental first RPG Maker game.
- That's No Moon!: He's initially disguised as a rock on a mountain. Carlson expects him to be the entire mountain, especially right when Unitia Two correctly deduces that he's the Demon behind the ground rumbling, and is disappointed when he finds that the soul being is slightly shorter than him.
- Berserk Button:
- She is extremely sensitive about her weight. And doesn't even like other people being mocked for their weight. Tony the Bear calling Stella "fat" [might not be the exact term; I'll look it up in a bit, if I can remember this] and later calling her a "lardass" made Ninjssassin break off ties with him and kick him out of the Single Digits, which eventually ended up costing him his life. While her reactions to his blatant sexism are unknown, Word of God is that that bothers her a lot less than any comments about people's weight.
- Even more sensitive than that is her hair color. It's acually gray, she just uses the Black Shiny Rock's power to "quick-dye" it. This can be seen whenever Carlson temporarily "defeats" her in battle.
- Do not tell her that a ninja and an assassin are "practically the same thing." She'll go ballistic.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Oh, you thought she was just a joke Big Bad Wannabe, since in her first appearance Unitia Two quickly hijacked her camera? That she's "just" some Fat Bastard who hates Tony the Bear's various comments? Especially since she sent Tony the Bear as a "test" to fight Stella? Well, the end of Chapter 3 reveals that she's a Shiny Rock Holder, and it's implied that Shiny Rocks are guaranteed ways to power people (human or Demon) to Carlson or even Unitia-tier strength. Enter Chapter 6, where she finally makes her debut to the Stellar Silver Knights (and thus becomes worthy of Boss Subtitles — the Boss Subtitles give an Oh, Crap! reaction), where she sneaks up on super-instinct user Carlson by carving out a chunk of a mountain, and gives him a tough mirror-match while the chunk is falling down the cliffside.
DEMON #7: NINJSSASSIN
HOLY FUCKING SHIT
- Bizarre Alien Biology: Both her "scarf" and her "hair" are really additional arms/limbs. Her sword is also a part of her biology, evident by the brief fleshy stuff seen inside it when Origin sets it on fire (before she heals it), and yet the sword isn't actually physically attatched to her body.
- Chekhov's Gunman: She appears way before the Knights actually fight her. This applies to all of the Single Digits except Tony to some extent, but as the unofficial "leader" of the group, she has the most focus of them back then, and much later on in the story's final full arc.
- Co-Dragons: Like Last, she's one of the final Demons fought in the entire story, and is one of the toughest of them all. Unlike Last, who was simply powerful on her own strength, Ninjssassin is a Shiny Rock Holder, appears multiple times through the story, is rogue as all hell, and is fought right before Eighth Circle himself, not counting one last "joke battle" with Res.
- The Dreaded: Even many of her co-Demons are afraid of her, and the few willing to stand up to her (like Tony the Bear) get yelled at by her as they also tend to push her Berserk Buttons.
- Of Roxanne Richter. Both are technically "half-ninjas" (look at her name) with short tempers that
- Seven of the Demons are loosely based on the Seven Evil Inner Devils from Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage (which is the Stylistic Suck, Gravity Falls "prototype" to this), and they are in turn based on the Evil Exes. Ninjssassin fits Gluttony Devil, which is also why her hair is black.
- She fulfills the "recurring rival fight" that was seen with Mudvin in OU's "sister story," and inspired by Jeanne and Prince Vorkken.
- Mirror Match: Out of all the Shiny Rock Holders, she's the closest to Carlson's equal. She even has a dark counterpart to his "Shining Armor" form. In fact, Word of God was that the sole reason why he went with the idea of something like Shining Armor was just so that Ninjssassin could have her own version in their final battle to show that things got serious. Not bad for someone who wasn't even really thought up until after the first chapter was already published.
8. The First Square
- Boring, but Practical: You'd be surprised at how effective her "crushing" movements are. She's the only one of the Single Digits, not counting Eighth Circle, that Carlson actually had some trouble dealing with.
- Expy: She's inspired by the Thwomps and related enemies from the Mario series, although instead of being made of stone she's made of "solid energy" similar to Fan's game idea Colored Cubes.
9. Unitia Origin
See the page on Unitias.
- Berserk Button: Anything related to him failing to meet the qualifications for the Single Digits. Such as most of the actual Single Digit members (save Ninjssassin; she scares him and she's the only one he thought "deserved" the role), Unitia Origin for "meeting the qualifications" yet "blowing it" by being a traitor,
- Meaningful Name: A heavy corruption of "shift." While it's suggested that shape-shifting is a common soul-being ability, he by far has better control over it.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: And he can induce involuntary shapeshifting on other people.
11. Swinging Blade
A humanoid man with a fox-like head that has no outstanding powers (although he might have a kind of super speed and reflexes) but boasts about having good sword skills. He's notable for being the first demon to give Carlson a decent fight, and his tampering with a lake-area awoke the wrath of Eldbrash.
- Accidental Misnaming: He calls Stella "Stejja" when first meeting her, although he soon ends up being corrected.
- Brick Joke: At the beginning of Chapter 3, Unitia Origin says that he's probably the only Demon that will get killed out of his own stupidity. This turns out to be technically true at the end of the chapter, except he's killed by tripping and landing on his own weapon, not so much a mistake that he actively did.
- Butt-Monkey: He is the least-seriously taken out of all the Demons to ever hold on to a Shiny Rock, and possibly one of the least-seriously taken of the Hundred Demons in general. The muggle he attacks is afraid of him and Eldbrash considers him a decent challenger, but he gets his "musical number" interrupted by Carlson headbutting him, and Unitia Origin outright says that his annoyance would have convinced her to kill him before getting information about the "strange signals" (the Shiny Rock he was holding).
- Character Tics: He really likes raising and lowering his eyebrows, which eventually starts annoying even Eldbrash, who otherwise keeps calm in any situation.
- Small Name, Big Ego: The guy is clearly not as powerful as many of the other demons faced in the story, and even ones like Dagger that are seen before him are more threatening. He thinks that just being good with a sword pits him above Eighth Circle, which is the size of a continent. He also believes that Unitia Origin is nowhere near as powerful as people say she is and that she got in soley because she's Eighth Circle's ex. That is partly true, but also because Origin really is that tough.
- Walking Spoiler: Of the early story, but the fact that there are more weapons similar to the Grayscale Boomerang/the use of the Shiny Rocks at all is meant to come across as a shock, especially since the first chapter deliberately misleads savvier readers in to thinking that the Unit Blades are the counterparts to Carlson's weapon.
- When All You Have Is a Hammer...: He's over-reliant and over-confident about his sword. When he utilizes the power of the Shiny Rock he has, all he really makes with it is a bigger sword.
- Author Appeal: Great Pikmin Fan loves color-related things, and apparently the Unitias by themselves (and, to an extent, the billiard-themed PETAL SQUAD FORCE, although their billiard motif takes inspiration from the RYB Color Model, which GPF hates) weren't enough, as he added that too.
- Mad Artist: She can impale people with "solidified" beams of light.
- Mythology Gag: Her power is based on this very old idea Great Pikmin Fan had for ''
13. Lucky Jones
- Book Ends: Chronologically. Dagger is actually the ninth Demon that Carlson and Origin fought, not counting Carlson's encounter with Origin at the beginning (we just don't see the ones they faced before Dagger until Chapter 2). Digger's the ninth-to-last; Fan really had to count things out to make that work. They both look very similar.
- Improbable Weapon User: She uses shovels. But never actually digs with them, so much like Carlson pointing this out with Dagger, he also points out that her name isn't very accurate either.
15. Moth Reaper
- The Cameo: As with Darkhorse being recycled in Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group, Moth Reaper was a character from Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals. He shows up more-or-less just like his HHC counterpart, except without the "three lives" system.
16. Dark Water
- Border Patrol: He's modeled off of them. He's found in the deep ocean,
- Aerith and Bob: Most of the demon names sound like some fancy supervillain names. Hers is based on a real-world name. As with "Carl" being a common Martian name in Crconikals, "Sally" is apparently a common soul being name, she just had a different name picked due to her snake traits.
- Sssssnaketalk: Subverted, considering her name and the long amount of buildup between that name and when the Knights find her in the jungle.
19. Ms Mist Maid
- Censor Steam: Averted. Her mist either covers all of her or a few select places that are obviously not in the name of censorship. At one point, the mist covers everything except her breasts. And when the fog is blown away, she's covered by completely different forms of Scenery Censor. Which makes sense given that she was hit by a powerful wind attack, so there's literally no in-universe reason as to why a stubborn patch would stay by her crotch.
- His Name Really Is "Barkeep": The "Ms" is not written with a period at the end, because it's not short for anything. It's also pronounced "Miss."
- Nightmare Face: The first demon since Dagger, way at the beginning, that pulls this off. Although unlike Dagger, it's not her default expression.
- Evil Counterpart: Her open obsession with panties makes her one to Hoodieath, and they even look similar. (Except she has more of a purple color scheme than a pink one.) However, she's killed off shortly before Hoodieath is revealed.
- Aliens Steal Cattle: Inverted. She looks like a flying saucer in some way, but she hates even being near cows. It's even her main weakness.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Screws over Stella, Eldbrash, Kameel, Ruby, and Leon.
- The Lad-ette: A female Demon that loves riding around on loud motorcycles, is tattooed all over half of her, and likes... mild beer.
- Punny Name: Heavy corruption of "motorcycle" mixed with "psycho."
- Take That!: Fan has very little patience for those who have very loud motor vehicles and really lets it show here.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: To Stella's group in Chapter 5. While the Unitias are making a laughing stock out of Cryipasto, Stella, Eldbrash, Kameel, Ruby, and Leon all try to stop her small "band" and utterly fail to take her out (but they do take down the "Moth Duo"). She's notably the first, and one of the few, fights Stella's been on where she unambiguously loses and eventually has to get bailed out by the Unitias. Lampshaded when things seem increasingly dire and yet Stella insists that they don't have to call the Unitias.
- Size Shifting: It's her main ability. She has a far greater control over it than Tony the Bear, who just has "Big Mode" and "Small Mode."
- That's No Moon!: He's a gigantic pile of an algae-like substance. Carlson initially mistakes him for a lake before Unitia Origin points out that that's actually Demon #25.
26. Blazing Fast
- Cute Monster Girl: Male example. Of all the demons, he's the most humanoid seen as of the latest update, looking even more "normal" than the Unitias.
- Evil Counterpart: He's one of the several "anti-Unitias." In his case, their similarities are in how they are among the most human-looking of the Demons (he is the most human-looking by far, with his red hair being the only "odd" thing about him, while the Unitias have their exaggerated proportions in their default form) and are very jaded about their opponents. The Unitias in general begin the story thinking that the Eighth Circle is completely invincible... just as Blazing Fast thinks the Unitias are unstoppable, and could beat even the Eighth Circle due to the latter being really frickin' lazy.
- Only Sane Man: He's one of the few Demons who does not let ego (most of them) or denial (the Eighth Circle; there is a combination of ego and denial for a lot of them) get to his head. He knows that the Unitias are especially powerful, make nearly all the other Demons look like jokes, and could wipe out almost all of their competition on day 1 if not for how that would cause the Eighth Circle to awaken way ahead of their schedule. Great Pikmin Fan stated that he's a parody of "overpowered protagonist" shows where opponents always seem to think they can take the protagonist on, regardless of how many feats they've shown and even if the difference in power should be obvious if the enemy knows a lick of information about their target.
- Playing with Fire: The "Blazing" part of his name, and a variant in that he's hit hard with Elemental Baggage. He cannot generate fire on his own (unlike the Unitias, whose creations "default" to fire yet they can generate any form of matter and then some out of absolutely nothing), but he can start fires from his sheer speed/friction.
- Super Speed: The "Fast" part of his name. His speed also picks up fires, which he can use as projectiles.
- Always a Bigger Fish: Compared to Vineeythruhp, who was already huge enough to swallow a Threatening Shark whole. It doesn't help that he has two mouths, and a freaking laser cannon attatched to his head.
- Expy: Taken from an idea for a video game Border Patrol system Great Pikmin Fan had as a kid, where this guy's type of thing was a sort of "third-level" enemy.
- Expy: Taken from an idea for a video game Border Patrol system Great Pikmin Fan had as a kid, where this guy's type of thing was a sort of "second-level" enemy.
- Meaningful Name: It's a corruption on "Venus Fly Trap." Despite being a giant red shark-ish thing, he also has a good number of plant-like traits.
- Hellfire: She insists that her "thermal hell" is nothing like regular fire.
30. Booze Bruiser
- Attack Its Weak Point: He not only has this mentality when it comes to striking his opponents, but he is also obsessed with weak points in general. To the point where he tried to train to "remove his own," but that just amounts to trying to shield it psychically. Origin remarks that if there is no obvious weakpoint, then just hit anywhere, but hard.
- Drunken Master: Subverted. He seems like this at first, but it's heavily implied that he's a better fighter while sober. He's just really picky about his alcohol, and loves showing off his knowledge of trivia on it.
- Improbable Weapon User: Coins. That he created. Also, it's not much of a surprise that he's a master at counterfeit money creation.
32. Solid Death
- The Grim Reaper: Invokes this image, with her half-skull face, name, and carrying around a huge scythe.
- Cats Are Mean: Well, lions, but he is feline-ish in nature and also a colossal asshole. Even by the Hundred Demon standards.
- Chekhov's Gunman: He initially just seems like more fodder, especially since he's one of the few Demons introduced in the Fuck the Jungle Arc that's not part of the Jungle Gang and, in fact, not even encountered at Cooper Domain.
- Shout-Out: Well, a self-shout out since they're by the same author, but his name is a reference to Fate'phinal from Emazh In.
An illusionist (her name is a corruption of that word, in fact) that is part of the Jungle Gang and first seen trying to team up with Cryipasto to
- The Swarm: Her favorite method of freaking people out is to try to give them illusions of being surrounded by bugs and spiders. When she starts "intensing up" on her illusions as Carlson gets used to them way too quickly, she barely even throws on the blood or scary faces — all she does is make him see the rooms getting flooded with bugs, and he still barely gives a damn since he knows they're not real.
- Boring, but Practical: Other Demons can use his holograms to project themselves live giving messages to other people. This does an amazing job at keeping them out of the wrath of the Knights themselves, including the Unitias until One finally figures out how to hack in to them as the Unitias already knew with cell phones. They're introduced with Swinging Blade using them so that he can brag about setting Stella's house on fire, without physically being there and thus being at the risk of being insta-killed by Carlson or a Unitia. Of course, what's less "boring" is that all of the hologram-projecting discs could be bombs. The fact that they can all explode backfires horribly after Unitia One figures out how to hack in to them.
- Foreshadowing: He's hinted at back in Chapter 2, when Swinging Blade just uses his holograms to communicate with Stella, Carlson, and Unitias One and Two after burning the former's house.
- Troll: He loves fucking with people through spamming his holograms of the other Demons everywhere.
A demon with the appearance of a sapient collection of bricks.
- Agony of the Feet: Happens to almost anyone who tries to attack her. Carlson, who could punch holes in some other demons with ease, finds this out the hard way. The pain in his fist is the first thing that makes him cry.
- Boring, but Practical: She's one of the trickiest foes in the story. But also intentionally bland. Even her design looks half-assed, in contrast to most of the demons just "looking silly" or, in the case of Dagger, actually looking far more original and detailed.
- Stone Wall: Literally and figuratively. In her "assembled form," she just looks like a wall of bricks with a face and short arms. She does not provide much in the way of offense, but she's really sturdy and tough.
38. Assily Blast
- Wake-Up Call Boss: Despite looking silly, he's the first demon who unambiguously kicks Carlson's ass, even with an army of Unitias to help him. Also, he's notably the first enemy who successfully breaks the Grayscale Boomerang (but it can reform, slowly) It takes the arrival of Hoodieath to save him and his entire organization.
- Walking Spoiler: Mostly due to the fact that he's the first enemy that unambiguously kicks the shit out of Carlson. What, you thought this was going to be an OP hero romp/parody where absolutely nothing stands against him? This guy alone makes the Eighth Circle seem that much more ominous, as it suddenly becomes far less likely that Carlson and Origin would just curb-stomp him.
- Meaningful Name: It's based on "Bull's eye." And no, she has nothing to do with cows or irises. She's target-themed.
- Warmup Boss: For Stella, at least. She's the first Demon she actually plays a role in fighting. (Stella was around when Tankah attacked, but Unitia Origin fought him entirely by herself; Stella didn't get a chance to go near him.)
- Dishing Out Dirt: Can use the power of "red earth." Like Fwater, Booze Bruiser, and Thermilisha (in other words, all four demons Gatherer United with), she insists that this is an entirely new form of element.
- Eye Scream: Subverted. He may resemble a large ball of eyes, but each eye is actually well-protected by clear shells that act as "lids." It's the mouth that's the vulnerable part.
- Beware the Silly Ones: She just looks kind of like a stick-thing with various animal-related objects from her "limbs" (scales, feathers, etc). She's one of the toughest of the demons, in many ways kicking Carlson even worse than Assily Blast did.
43. DEATH MECHA
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Yes, he's part of the Hundred Demons, which means that he's definitely trying to end human life. Yet he at least appears to be a very loyal member of the Jungle Gang. In reality, that's a lie. He ends up betraying Flower's Chest just before she actually endangers Carlson's life, steals her Shiny Rock, and turns out to be the real Rock Holder antagonist for the arc. He's one of the few Demons that's an outright dick to his other co-Demons; Blazing Fast may not really care if the ones that are Too Dumb to Live throw themselves at the Unitias out of sheer ego, but he at least never flat-out insults them unless they're closed to getting killed out of cockyness. Hurting even more is that he initially seems like one of the few Affably Evil ones, almost as "nice" as the Eighth Circle himself.
- Humongous Mecha: Appears to be as such, despite being a demon. The "metal" that forms him is considered genuine metal... yet at the exact same time, it's his "skin." Demons can have weird biology.
- Vocal Dissonance: Who the hell would expect a giant, deadly, demon mecha to sound like Johnny?
- What the Hell Is That Accent?: Word of God is that his odd talking style is loosely based on Tommy Wiseau with a tiny bit of "accent inconsistency." The story plays around with this by setting up what seems like obvious references to The Room, only to not do them. For example, when he tries to tear Stella apart:
DEATH MECHA: I am going to TEAR YOU a lot, and it will be pretty painful, okay?
- Fur Against Fang: She, a vampire-based demon, takes on Leon, who is very werewolf like. (Just with a lot of twists on the mythology.) Given how the fight took place in the dark with her gaining way more power in the dark while he needs to be in total sunlight to work, the fight was a curb-stomp on her favor.
- Our Vampires Are Different: She's the closest this story has to a vampire,
45. Orange Whirlwind
- Punny Name: She's a humanoid tornado creature of oranges, as in the fruit. But she's also slightly orange-colored. Namely, the "wind" part of her, not the planet part.
46. Suddsy Slow
- Foil: He's effectively the inverse of Blazing Fast.
- Punny Name: It's a play on "enormous." She's pretty large, even slighly bigger than Kilomega's giant form. They get in to an argument over this, in addition to dragging Solid Death in.
48. Jack's Room
- Expy: Of a room, of all things. Room 1408, specifically. In fact, get rid of the first and third digets and look at his demon number.
- Genius Loci: Subverted. He's just a "room-shaped demon," and can slightly change his form to a giant.
- Insistent Terminology: Not a room-that's-alive and certainly not a "living room." He is a room-shaped demon.
The demon seen near the beginning that Carlson takes down. Appears as a "shadow stalker" before anti-climactically getting the tar beat out of him by Carlson for trying to attack him while he had a headache.
- Establishing Series Moment: He's built up as some kind of invincible horror monster. Then Carlson fails to take him seriously, and he and Origin manage to make short work of him (through a bicycle battle). This is indicative in how the main character sees the monsters as more of a chore than an honest obstacle, and that this story will flat-out refuse to take itself seriously. If anything, his fight is too tense, in that he can actually move Carlson around and even destroys his armor. The demons between him and Assily Blast put up considerably less of a fight. Fan just wanted an Action Prologue, and a tiny bit of Early Installment Weirdness was involved.
- Knife Nut: They're not daggers, according to Carlson and despite the demon insisting otherwise.
- Non-Indicative Name: Carlson calmly points out that his weapons are not technically daggers, but "regular" knives.
51. Flower's Chest
- Arc Villain: She's the first demon to have her own mini-arc. Namely, the "Fuck the Jungle Arc," as its official name is. It's shorter than the average arc (and this is saying a lot, as apart from the Stellar Silver Knights Buildup Arc and the Laser-Energy Duo Arc, none of them are that long), but it's still one.
- Even Evil Has Standards: When one of her flunkies mistakes an image of Carlson showing up as a dog (it's because the dog jumped in the way of the camera) to mean Carlson himself was a dog, she brought the dog over to Flower's Chest. She remarked that even if the dog really was Carlson, she could not bring herself to kill it. After all, the mission was to wipe out humanity, not all life on Earth.
- Gag Boobs: As her name would imply. Her breasts are easily bigger than
- Plant Person: Actually appears as a bush shaped like a tank, with several flowers that have her humanoid body within.
- Meaningful Name: It's a play on "pecs," and he has huge pecs... in addition to an oddly tiny, oddly "simplistic"-looking head.
53. The Orange Piyipe
- Beware the Silly Ones: He's one of the last Demons faced and comes after a pretty large gauntlet of weaker-than-they-look Demons. Yet his pipe-attack can pretty much extend indefinitely, impaling almost anyone who isn't a Unitia.
- Shout-Out: He's a nod to the old Windows "3D Pipes" screensaver. It's how his ability to make several strings of pipes works.
54. Hardened Meteor
A demon made of a hard orange "rock" that can generate meteors to strike the ground.
55. Shayot Banx
- Bloody Murder: Partly as expected given her "muscle"/"skinless" theme.
- Body Horror: Resembling a floating, if closed-in shell of skin with no eyes or visible apparent internal organs at all.
- Shout-Out: Fan took her concept of walking skin from Dwarf Fortress, an Ascended Glitch as the creator of that game thought that living floating skin made as much sense as a living skeleton. And this story has both.
59. Scale Breath
A giant dragon-demon. He can sort of-"split" similar to Unitia Origin.
- Call-Back: Remember Mushroom and Mushroom Chess, the tabletop games discussed near the beginning of the story? Yeah, she's obsessed with them.
- Smart People Play Chess: Parodied. It's suggested that she "would" be a Chess-themed villain... if the Demons were based on real-world culture. But instead, she has the counterpart played by soul beings specifically in the region Unitia Origin lived in, Mushroom.
An unusual demon that resembles a computer key reading "FY" (standing for "Fuck You," and a joke about the F1, F2, etc keys) for a "head" with a black stick figure-like "body." He's far more of a skilled fighter than he looks.
63. Analavian(, King of Birdshit)
- Expy: He's taken almost directly from The Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage, although he was a very minor character back there.
- Big Red Button: She's themed after pushing buttons, so it makes sense that she'd include one. It doesn't actually do anything.
- Boring, but Practical: She can make gigantic stone wheels around herself, that roll around and cause carnage. This is pretty much most of what she does. Yet she's able to outrun Carlson, and even put up a good chase against his Grayscale Boomerang.
- Expy: He's like Creepypasta Sonic from GPF's previous fan fic The Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage (which is one of the biggest inspirations for this). He's a dig at by-the-numbers creepypasta cliches, isn't taken seriously by anyone, and he relies way too much on trying to make things bloody for horror value.
- Gosh Dang It to Heck!: In sharp contrast to most of the other characters in the story really laying on the F-bombs, Cryipasto keeps himself to saying things like "eff" in place of "fuck." The one exception to this was when the Unitias begin suggesting ideas to make his illusions creepier, where he replies "What the fuck is wrong with you?!"
- Number of the Beast: Referenced in him being Demon #66. However, this is yet another Red Herring of how powerful he is; the guy is a wimp, especially considering that he's introduced shortly on the heels of the Shiny Rock reveal, and one chapter after it's established that Blazing Fast isn't an idiot.
- Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: Stella admits that if they ever crossed paths, his ideas teamed up with Eellooshinist's illusion-powers probably could have genuinely scared her. Unfortunately, they try their combined "horror vision plan" on Carlson and the Unitias, whom are all far more fearless and powerful than Stella is. The result is that, no matter what disturbing stuff he makes his Wavette visions do, none of them are even phased. And then the trope comes in when the Unitias start trying to give him "suggestions," which majorly squick him out. He calls them "sickos" and is waiting for them to kill him.
- You Talk Too Much: Unitia Two thinks of this of him. And this is when his "illusion plan" was thrown Off the Rails; he was going to have a long buildup to it, but Carlson and the Unitias figured out that something was wrong with the "episode of Wavette" they were watching in an instant.
- Platonic Life-Partners: With Dudenergy.
68. Large Avian
- Non-Mammal Mammaries: She's a bit more bird than humanoid, yet she has a notable pair of breasts. With nipples even, as closer inspection reveals that it's just bare pale skin that is not covered by feathers. This is invoked as part of the 100 having exaggerated sexual features, given that one of the few demons that aren't include a living brick.
- Punny Name: Her name is totally not a Big Bird reference. Not one at all.
69. Useless Bob
- Butt-Monkey: Not as much as Cryipasto or especially Swinging Blade, but he really does live up to his title "useless" and his one and only fighting sequence results in him falling flat on his ass.
- Mythology Gag: He was originally a joke villain from Ed, Edd n Eddy's Awesome Edventures, an old, scrapped Stylistic Suck fan vid idea.
- Baseball Episode: Parodied in that he challenges the Knights to "a really long baseball match!" Carlson just bypasses this by slicing him in half with Grayscale. Stella's slightly disappointed when she finds out about this in the future, but Unitia Origin was just relieved that she doesn't have to risk putting on a uniform (although she doubts Home-Run would actually do so).
- Alpha Bitch: Her actual personality is closer to this, because Fan said he was sick of having the "cute-types" turn out to be "sadistic" (Icesky, Tanker, Lil Stalin) so he wanted one that was closer to being an asshole. She even comes with her own... unique annoying laugh, which even Stella can't defend as she thinks it's a pain in the ears.
- Foil: She's almost the opposite of the Unitias. While the Unitias are largely their own bosses, go around completely naked, are geniuses, take crap from nobody, and are intentionally meant to have a mildly "creepy" asthetic when taken out of context despite being friendly (for the most part, Origin/One can be a bit of an ass some times to people who don't fit her high standards), Server is a relatively "small" and submissive maid-type that usually wears more clothes than most of the other Demons (PETAL SQUAD FORCE being the biggest exception(s)), is an idiot, and is supposed to have a "cute" asthetic at first when taken out of context except she's a colossal Bitch in Sheep's Clothing.
- The Ditz: She's regarded to be the dumbest of the 100, and that she was only registered in the first place because her physical skill outweighed any of the knowledge tests. Sure enough, she's really damn durable.
- Naked Apron: Her only attire in one of her two "forms." Interestingly, the Knights have four people (one man, three women) with this "uniform," just that it cannot shift in to a maid outfit as well.
- Verbal Tic: She likes punctuating things with a laugh that's written as "Ah. Ha ha fa fa na na ra ra MAHHHH!" The Unitias being annoyed by it is a given, they have a low tollerance for bullcrap. With Carlson it's not that surprising either. But when Stella finds something annoying, that says a lot.
72. Hot Ice
- The Dragon: To Flower's Chest. He's the last of the demons faced in that particular jungle right before heading up to Flower's Chest for the showdown of that arc, and he's the strongest of that group of mooks.
- Feed It with Fire: Stella believed that, since he looked like an ice monster, chucking him in a volcano would be a good solution. He was intentionally keeping secret the fact that he's actually a "hot ice" monster, meaning that heat only makes him stronger.
- Foreshadowing: A bit red flag that Stella's plan to shove him in to the jungle's volcano might not be what does him in is the fact that his name isn't even really revealed, nor that he gets that "DEMON #[Number]: [Name]"
- Deliberate Values Dissonance: She doesn't give a shit what you believe in, or what you're like: if you're a woman, she thinks that you're not "really" happy unless you settle down to a suburb and have two/three kids. It is her unironic dream with Carlson,
- Distaff Counterpart: She's close to a female version of the Inventor (or another Yuullieke, but she has more in common with the Inventor than Yuullieke). Both are Hate Sink villains in a story that tries to otherwise invoke Laughably Evil with even a main antagonist that's complex and rounded. Both are meant to be criticisms of sexist views the author finds slightly creepy: "white knighting" faux-nice guys for Inventor and gender roles such as women being pushed to be stay-at-home-mothers (and nothing else) for Wunhart. Both are some of the very, very few characters who have legitimately got Unitia One angry for reasons unrelated to the Eighth Circle, although while her response to the Inventor was to go on an all-out rage while intentionally giving herself a Body Horror form, her reaction to Wunhart started as Tranquil Fury before turning in to straighter triumphant badassery.
- Expy: She's extremely similar to the Lust Devil from Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage in how her battle plays out, what with the illusions, her interest in breaking a relationship, and how the battle ends with a Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann reference.
- Faux Affably Evil: She initially appears to be one of the nicer members of the Hundred Demons, even casually offering relationship advice to Carlson and Unitia Origin when they seem to be in a rough spot (specifically, Unitia Origin had just called herself a "terrible person" and left Carlson/the other Unitias/all of the Knights in the prior chapter). In reality, she's a manipulative asshole who just wanted Carlson for herself and spends her time trying to outright brainwash people in to being near-identical nuclear family types.
- Shipper on Deck: Deconstructed. Her "preferred couples" really just lead to overly-controlling behavior, a number of (failed) attempts at brainwashing, and it's plainly obvious that the one thing she really cares about is just getting in to a relationship with Carlson.
- Small Role, Big Impact: She's ultimately a single-chapter Demon that even relies on the abilities of another Demon (Eellooshinist), but her battle is what marks the completion of Unitia Origin's "I am/was a terrible person; 'Demon #9: Unitia Origin' is now dead, I'm Unitia One" character arc that spans for about the entire first third of the story, and acts as one of her biggest stepping stones in character development.
- Took a Level in Kindness: She goes from one of the most dickish Demons to one of the nicest ones in Extraordinarily, as her defeat helped "prove" to her that an "ideal relationship" is ultimately subjective, and she could live (er, post-live) on knowing that she's not obligated to fulfill the requirements she thought were the end-all determiners of love.
75. Derek Shallowadow-wood
- Nonstandard Character Design: As he's a reference to the M.U.G.E.N line of characters by The_None (under his previous username Most_Mysterious), and Dink Smallwood specifically, he is drawn in a way that emulates the MS Paint art style. This is lampshaded in one panel where Carlson is drawn in the same way (as Carlson's art style can change wildly) and someone talks about how close alike they look.
- Totally Radical: He is one of the most slang-riddled of the demons, and
77. Black Charm
- Butt-Monkey: None of her attempts at charming anybody work. The Unitias are completely due to being fellow demons, Carlson's been around zillions of completely naked women so she comes off as relatively unimpressive,
- Expy: The joke about her trying to be a sensual Ms. Fanservice while failing to realize that there are far more' sexualized characters than her at being stunned about it when she finds out was lifted directly from Revealica from Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group. Except that Revealica is a bloodthirsty wolf-monster giant that loves crushing things and is a brutal, borderline Bishoujo sadist. Black Charm is far more Affibly Evil, looks more conventionally attractive,
- Irony: Despite her claims of "charming people" and being a "sexually active enemy," she's one of the few soul beings that wears clothes, and one of the fewer of the Hundred Demons in terms of statistics (as a larger number of soul beings not allied with the Demons do wear clothing; almost a fourth. While only a tenth of the ones that make up the Demons specifically wear clothes.) "Cleveage and shorts" might appeal to some people that are turned off by the direct-ness of the Unitias, yet you would not have anyone saying "that costume is so revealing!" when right up against people not wearing anything at all.
78. Toa Fro
- Beware the Silly Ones: Subverted. He's faced pretty late, he looks almost like a regular toad/frog, and this is long when a pattern of villains who are more serious than they look have emerged. He goes down easily and his one ability, his quick punch, isn't really that impressive.
79. The AWESOME Puzzler
- Berserk Button: Do not call her main weapon "acid." It's fire-water.
- Evil Counterpart: To Eldbrash, seeing as both of them are heavily tied to a liquid and are associated with a lot of blue. However, Eldbrash is a very honor-following man
- Grimy Water: Her "fire-water" is an opaque tealish color, which is based on a certain water area in The Simpsons: Hit & Run (specifically, in level 1). It also runs as a stark contrast to how (bottled and tap; but even natural water is almost universally depicted as being greener) water is portrayed as almost completely clear.
81. Like a Big Cluster of Neutrons
82. Good Chef
- Beware the Silly Ones: He is really good at tempting people, better than the actual "I have a magic power that lets me charm others" faced later in the story (Black Charm). Turns out the Unitias — well, mainly Origin — have a bit of difficulty refusing anchovy pizza.
- Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: He knows that Stella loves pizza and the Unitias love seafood. He combines them both with anchovy pizza. And, after struggling a bit, he figures out how to combine Carlson's favorite food (meaty soups that have eggs in them): inventing a "soup pizza." After Good Chef's defeat, the gang notes that the invention is actually pretty damn good. For all three of them.
- Eldritch Abomination: He's one of the least humanoid demons, and looks pretty damn strange. With that being said, he's also really nice by the 100 standards.
- Purple Is Powerful: Claims to be this with her eggplant (IE, purple) coloration. She goes down with just as much effort as the non-major demons (IE Assily Blast and Flower's Chest).
- Wrong Genre Savvy: She insists that she's some sort of villain in a children's show episode about eating healthy. Carlson is actually amused by this at first, to the point where he considers going light on her... until she attacks a child.
- Gag Penis: He's got a tank cannon for a dong. He can shift it out for a gattling gun, a grenade launcher, and a flamethrower. None of these have any effect on Unitia Origin at all.
- Shout-Out: To Wii Play's "Tanks!" game, just like Tanker of Steve Buhvillen's intriguing Group. Even his number is one — 84 is the total number of tanks in the first twenty missions.
A tooth-ish monster thing.
- Evil Counterpart: She's one to Her Bone, since both of them have remarkably similar abilities and they even duke it out a bit in the latter's introduction chapter.
86. Big Dawg
- Boring, but Practical: He's able to whoop Carlson with just super strength alone and nothing else (which Stella thinks is a really "boring" and "overused" superpower), and he's able to fend off against Unitia One a bit. While he can do flashy things like carve huge canyons with his strength, he'd rather not, as he lacks the durability that most of the super-strong Demons have and thus and fall that could kill a normal human could also kill him.
87. Pink Watch
- Insistent Terminology: His technical ability is affecting the speed of things, but he claims to control time. The Unitias and Carlson are very quick to correct him about this.
88. PETAL SQUAD FORCE
A demon that, similar to the Unitias (and Scale Breath), can "generate" other beings similar to him. Except he can only do so with fourteen others, and together they all form a squad of fifteen. All of them have to be killed at nearly the same time, or else the leader will re-clone/revive them, and the clones can revive the leader.
- Expy: Heavily based on the "_ank _ills" (color-coded and billiard-based copies of Hank Hill initially from GPF's Escape From Fanservice Island, although Bank Bill by himself first debuted in Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage). Basically, they are to the _ank _ills what the Unitias are to the .GIFfany Army.
- Naked People Are Funny: Noted here because they are among the most humanoid of the demons, and they are some of the few that do have clothes... specifically, each of them wears a belt, a pair of gloves, a pair of boots, and nothing else.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: Invoked, as they in of themselves would be a supervillain team all on their own.
89. Empty Fin
- Curb-Stomp Battle: She jumps on Carlson's ship as he and Origin are out to try to find Eighth Circle. Origin takes her out witha single fire ball.
- Non-Indicative Name: She has a fin as she's shark-based, but "empty" does not fit the expected physique at all. She's quite buff.
- Petting Zoo People: A large, buff shark-woman.
- Animalistic Abomination: She's one of the more animal-like of the 100 Demons. However, she barely resembles a real species: just some lengthy, sausage-shaped indigo thing with four really long legs that each have multiple knees.
- Eldritch Location: She can send people to a Pocket Dimension called a "Lost World." She prefers doing this to people that are already lost, so that they don't even realize that they're in another dimension.
- Meaningful Name: It's a corruption of "misdirection."
- The Eeyore: While most of the Demons are Evil Is Hammy incarnate, this guy can barely even be half-assed to lift a finger to fight. Being made of steam means that he can't really be hit with solid objects that good, yes (it's the main reason he was accepted to the 100), but it also means that he has trouble touching others. So he doesn't even bother. He's an even bigger downer than Blazing Fast, the Arc Villain of the previous arc.
92. Hero Man
- Body Horror: It's bad enough that her entire head is basically like a spider's body, but it's worse seeing that her hands can morph to look similar to that, and her body proper is full of eyes.
- Shout-Out: To The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon. Which is why he uses spoons as his main weapon.
- Evil Counterpart: To Unitia Origin, as the name might imply. However, while she's a shadowy being with similar abilities to the Unitias, she can not replicate.
- Non-Indicative Name: The name indicates that she has some kind of fist-based theme. She actually has giant spiked balls for hands.
A turtle-based humanoid demon that can guard herself in extremely powerful shells.
99. Larzhjock the Hard
- Expy: He looks somewhat like a dark purple Pikachu.
- The Dragon: To Eighth Circle, in terms of "rank" and serving. The story builds her as the final demon faced before the Single Digits (minus the defecting Unitia Origin and Tony, who was one of the first ones faced), which is before the grand showdown with the Eighth Circle, and she's the final Demon that's completely loyal to the Eighth Circle. As well as... well, one of the few Demons that's completely loyal to the Eighth Circle. She's one of the most powerful. The 100th also being one of the last ones faced is not a coincidence: Eighth Circle mentioned looking very carefully for the last one of his group, so that he could "finish strongly." When it comes to the story, she's Co-Dragons with Ninjssassin,
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: She's the final Demon introduced and the final one to have her own Boss Subtitles if one counts Eighth Circle's Boss Subtitles as the ones in Chapter 3 when he first sees Carlson, and not the "Demon #1... ... ... Fred" right before the final showdown. She's also one of the few who definitely, unironically follows the Eighth Circle to the end, and agrees with all of his seemingly conflicting choices. She, too, has some denial over whether or not Unitia One was a traitor.
Buck, Miller, and Jiller
Three people who at first seem like random mooks, but are actually servants under the Gatherer.
- Butt-Monkey: Their first fight with Stella is played relatively seriously. However, after that they become more and more joke-like as they show up and get beaten, having new injuries to show per battle.
- Chekhov's Gunman: They seem like random one-off thugs, much like the people that the "secondary" and "minor" Knights face off against starting at the Building the Knights Arc. Not quite; while still small fish compared to the other villains and even the Shiny Rock Holders, they are servants of the Gatherer and show up pretty often. This is blatantly foreshadowed in their introduction when they leave via teleportation, preceeded by Buck chanting something odd ("Fire, water, earth, and alcohol").
- Dirty Coward: Buck abandons Miller and Jiller and leaves them both to be killed by Stella. Even Stella herself is disgusted, and is almost hesitant to kill them. Then the pair mention their criminal record and that convinces Stella to finally finish (one of) them off.
- Expy: Buck bears a few similarities to Tanker from Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group. They are both early villains that foreshadow that the story has quite a bit more "depth" than it initially appears to be, and their actions help establish just what kind of story this is in ways prior villains... didn't quite (although Inflatable Tube Guy and to a much lesser extent Dagger did establish them well as-is). Perhaps the most obvious is that Buck and Tanker meet their ends in almost the same way — by disgusting a certain powerful someone by abandoning their allies. Tanker uses all of her followers/soldiers as "bait" to try to distract Diane after finding out just how powerful Diane really was, which backfired spectacularly as Diane instead rushed over to Tanker and literally blew her up with one punch. With Buck, he uses Miller and Jiller as human shields against Stella. Stella does fight the "blockade," except it's his boss that's disgusted with his actions and kills him (meanwhile, Tanker's boss — the Blood King — is just as much of a coward with just as low standards, so he admires Tanker trying to use her mooks to get the hell out of there).
- Goldfish Poop Gang: They're not that pathetic on their first appearance, and one of them even manages to deck a hit on Stella while she's distracted. As they show up, they Can't Catch Up to the more powerful Demons, the developing skills of Carlson and the Unitias, or the growing Knights, so they seem like downright nothing compared to everybody else. Their boss, on the other hand, is right up with the heroes.
- Odd Name Out: "Buck" and to a lesser extent (going on a last-name basis, which is not that unusual considering Carlson) "Miller" are actual names. "Jiller," however, is not. Looking at it another way, Buck is the one that does not fit, as the other two follow an obvious _iller pattern. Great Pikmin Fan joked that this paradoxically makes Miller also an odd name out, as he's the only one who otherwise fits both other themes. So, he's the only one whose name doesn't stand out... which makes his name stand out.
- Scars Are Forever: Their injuries from their first battle with Stella last through most of the story. While this is normally not a big deal as all their injuries last, in their first appearance they were simply beaten up, rather than outright being maimed like they were in subsequent fights. Subverted when Gatherer heals them just before Buck and Miller's last stand. However, Jiller ends up surviving with a different set of injuries than what he accumulated over the story pre-healing.
- Small Role, Big Impact: They're just three random thugs that exist to subvert the "guy 'mans up' and saves his girlfriend" with Ritch and Stella. Without them, however, Carlson and the Unitias would have... probably still met Stella eventually, but not nearly as early as they do in the story proper, and Stella's interactions with them start a snowball-roll of Carlson and the Unitias' emotional arcs. Jiller ends up playing a more important role in the Cats and Dragons Arc, but even then he's just a Big Bad Wannabe at absolute best and he ends up getting eaten by Scale Breath, the actual main focus Demon for the arc.
- Sole Survivor: Unlike Miller, who was killed by Stella, and Buck, who the Gatherer openly blew up out of disgust, Jiller ends up surviving the final double-fight with Miller, swearing revenge. This also makes him the final member of the original Gatherer's Cult to survive, and he ends up starting his own (smaller) branch to try to get the Yellow Shiny Rock from Scale Breath.
- Those Two Bad Guys: The first recurring villains to show up, the first signs of one of the non-Demon antagonistic forces (specifically, Gatherer; while Lock-On technically outlives her, she's still the "biggest" of the three in the organic/magic/robotics trio for how much focus she gets and how many arcs she spans being an actual threat), and they're pretty basic as far as they go. Their roles as the exposition people do not come until their second actual battle,
- Villain: Exit, Stage Left!: All of their battles end with one of them — usually Buck — using the Gatherer-Uniting chant of "Fire, water, earth, and alcohol" to warp them away. Except for the last fight, as they already used their warp for the 24-hour period (using Unity with a soul being to teleport over to them or visa-versa only works once every twenty-four hours). Buck just runs away and leaves Miller and Jiller as shields.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Gatherer kills Buck off after Stella finally manages to kill Miller and almost kills Jiller; mooks not taking bullets for one-another is a huge Berserk Button of the Gatherer.
A former "geek" that went to the same high school Carlson did, with a rather... warped view on morality. Thought of as a "nerd just having revenge," he's blamed the "jock-like" Carlson for most of his problems in life and wants to take things over.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Oh boy. He's first introduced as another genuine hero that was emerging around the same time as the demons that could put up a good fight against Carlson show up (helping matters is that his introduction was after Hoodieath's, a "genuine" heroine, so it first seemed like he was in the same boat as "dethroning" Carlson's popularity). Then you read his views on women and suddenly his image plumets. And that's before he starts attacking the Knights for petty reasons, complete with him punching a hole in Carlson's body, which would have killed him if not for Origin quickly freezing him with the cryo-hold gel and sending him off to be recovered.
- Deconstruction: Of nerd/underdog revenge stories, showing how it's entirely possible to become just as bad, if not worse, than the people you are against. Also, being the "underdog" does not mean that being a boundary-ignoring, perverted asshole is any less "harmless" than the perverted actions of manly men.
- Expy: He's like Rick Abs, from a handful of GPF's previous Homestuck fan fiction. Except whereas Rick was supposed to be "a genuine jock-asshole who would consider himself above video games like Sburb hypothetically," he's more of a geek than the bulk of the cast
- Eye Scream: Once Unitia Origin wears him down enough, she blows up every cell of him except for one eye — a reference to Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group, when Diane takes out all of Evol-Fish except for an eye. Unlike Evol-Fish, Inventor does not get a chance to fully regenerate. He turns the eye in to a giant white mouth-sphere so that he can deliver his final words, and then Origin steps on the eye, killing him off for good.
- Hate Sink: Great Pikmin Fan said that he wanted to try to make a former high school underdog bully victim completely unlikeable, namely by having him grow up to be just as bad if not worse than the people that mistreated him, and by deconstructing/mocking the "they're geeks, the 'good guys,' so their iffy perverted behavior isn't that bad"-kind of tropes seen in old movies or in manga/anime.
- Healing Factor: Not only can he heal at an incredibly fast rate, but if a significantly strong attack leaves a lot of blood from him, the blood will "morph" in to some sort of combat tentacle. This is the main reason why Unitia Origin has so much difficulty fighting him in their battle.
- Humans Are the Real Monsters: Going purely by attempt-kill numbers, the Eighth Circle is worse than him, as he wants to wipe out all of humanity. But Eighth Circle is presented in a far more comical fashion than the Inventor is: the latter is a brutal, torture-happy groper who has an extreme case of Moral Miopia. Plus, Eighth Circle's appearance is intentionally just kind of half-assed and looks more silly than it does threatening; Inventor looks unsettling to begin with, then busts out his Emergency Mode.
- Light Is Not Good:
- Two-Faced: His emergency mode has half of his face melting to the skull as a side-effect.
- The Unsmile: He's regarded as having an honest-to-goodness, genuine smile. However, combined with the constant death-look of his eyes, he comes off as slightly unsettling. It says a lot that even Carlson's creeped out by him, before he reveals his true colors. This was directly inspired by the Captain. Not the same Captain that indirectly inspired Leon.
- Would Hurt a Child: Not only does he break Tangersine's jaw, but he also doesn't mind attacking kids at an elementary school.
A woman who is trying to ally with a few select demons and use their powers to create a "superior world." What seems like a utopia plan is crushed by her distaste towards humans. Having four (by the time Carlson encountered her; her numbers had since grown and shrank) demons United with her, she is the human holding the record for the highest number of United demons.
- Expy: She's effectively the Lightning Cultist from Fan's previous Gravity Falls fanworks. A human that has an obsession with one of the Heel–Face Turned former supernatural beings, and is potentially way more powerful than her? Check. Has the supernatural on her side and even considers them superior to humanity? Check.
- Disney Villain Death: Subverted. Carlson just shoves her off a cliff leading in to several explosives, and then decides that that's not enough payback for the years of abuse and her attempting to shoot a child, so he cuts her in half with Grayscale.
- Ironic Name: It's a corruption of "you'll like." She's a Hate Sink.
- Jerkass: She was quite the asshole to Carlson back in high school, and is still one in the present.
- Lone Wolf Boss: She's one of the few villainous characters who has nothing to do with the Hundred Demons whatsoever (Gatherer wants to try to work with them to make her new world, and the few she allied with thinks that that's a better plan than going through the trouble of wiping out human life manually; Inventor killed a few of them, but that's mostly just to try to defend his public image; Lock-On )
- Scary Shiny Glasses: They normally look more like "hipster glasses," but they'll occasionally glare over when Yuullieke means business.
- Small Role, Big Impact: Only really shows up in a grand total of one-third of the story's arcs, and in all of them she appears very rarely aside from the Ex-Ex-Ex Arc. Yet she pretty much made Carlson who he was emotionally, and gave him a good deal of the issues he had to overcome even after her death. Definitely for the worse.
- Would Hurt a Child: In addition to her physical abuse and emotional manipulation, she's shown in the present to be driven to such drastic measures that she actually threatens to fire a gun at a kid if Carlson rejects her again, when he once again passes on her threat to get him kicked out of the house.
A scientist who has developed a special kind of "eye" (actually more like eyes attached through a simplistic organ system to a heart) that lets him copy most of what he sees. Saying that he has a high opinion of himself is a colossal understatement. He's a saint compared to the Inventor or even the Gatherer, but he's by no real definition a "good guy."
- Power Copying: Exaggerated. Like Mudvin, he's able to copy even otherwise "unique" magic feats. Just by staring at them long enough.
Canadian Mayors and the Prime Minister
Mayor GreenThe mayor of Hill City, and usually the guy who ends up dragging Carlson to missions.
- Colorful Theme Naming: Subverted as the Building the Knights arc goes on and reveals that Hill Town is really one in a set of seven when it comes to cities with coliseums that the Demons like hanging out around.
- Mayor Pain: He's implied to be a damn good mayor for the city overall, but he's quite honestly a huge dick to Carlson, using his image just for monetary/popularity gain and sending him on missions. There's a reason why the Unitias have negative knee-jerk reactions to him. He is nice in trying to get the Unitias recognized as official citizens, but even then he intentionally holds off making Unitia One allowed to get married to humans (see: Carlson).
The Prime Minister
In GeneralStella sleeps around a lot, but half the time she tries to at least get to know the person via a quick date. For the first few arcs, she's usually seen trying to bed one person per chapter. The main exception prior to the Ex-Ex-Ex arc is Chapter 1, where Stella was not even introduced yet.
- Ascended Extra: All the ones Stella dated in Ordinarily get more screentime in Extraordinarily, which also adds new dates on top of that.
- Fanservice Extra: Stella's dates are used for an increasing amount of fanservice as the story goes on — there's almost none with Ritch in Chapter 2 and little with Kelly in Chapter 3. The chapter designations are important as this is not some sort of "Stella just screws sexier people as the story goes on," as when prior dates show up in later chapters they're used for more fanservice than previously.
- Girl of the Week: Subverted. None of them are One-Shot Characters and they tend to show up quite often after their debut chapters; Ritch's cameo in Chapter 3 when looking at the Purple Shiny Rock's energy wave is an indicator that the United franchise won't just forget characters outright. Unless you're one of the minor Hundred Demons. And even then, that's what the spinoff is for.
- Informed Flaw: Stella's comments early on imply that most of the people she slept with prior to the events of Chapter 2 turned out to be clingy and obsessive. Most of the ones we see in the story's present are considerably better than that. This was a bit of Early Installment Weirdness at first, but Fan found a way to make it intentional retroactively. Turns out the Gatherer was the only real asshole, she was just
- Rescue Romance: Stella usually either meets them by saving them in a Demon/random thug fight, or she ends up fighting a Demon/random thug while they're dating. Subverted in that these aren't exactly "romances."
- Rule of Symbolism: Each of the early dates roughly corresponds to a theme of the chapter, whether it's related to Stella herself or the story overall by that point:
- Ritch is a wannabe hero, clearly at the beginning of his "journey." He represents Stella starting off with the Hundred Demons.
- Kelly means well and ultimately does work to defeat Tony the Bear, yet she's still taking on monsters way stronger than she could reasonably fend off and has to get bailed by Stella herself, a much more experienced fighter. She represents Stella's "risks in over her head." Sure, Tony the Bear was a joke of a fight, but
RitchThe first seen of Stella's many one-night stands seen over the story, and one of the more important ones. While Chapter 2 sets him up to be some sort of "fourth member" (not counting the additional Unitias) to the initial gang, he somewhat disappears after he sleeps with Stella, and shows up again a bit later.
- Ironic Name: He's actually pretty damn poor, and works with a hole-in-the-wall fishing crew that barely makes enough to earn a living. There's a reason why people think he's homeless when they see him.
Kelly TeetalerA pot-loving woman that Stella encounters in Chapter 3 while fighting Tony the Bear. Later revealed to be a mortician.
- Drugs Are Bad: She confesses to being high when she sees Tony the Bear with no context (a soul being with the body of a buff man (at the time) but the head of a teddy bear) and is completely serious about it. Following that, she acts like a wreckless idiot. Stella even openly says when explaining her story to Carlson and Origin (after returning from the brief Empty Fin mission) that she hated Kelly until she sobered up, then
- Ironic Name: Which she lampshades in Chapter 3. Her last name sounds like "Teetotaler," but she's a stoner and a very hard alcohol fan.
VeronicaAn industrial worker that was at the same factory Ruby "reveals" herself by during the Larzhjock/Bricka/Analavian battle in Chapter 4 (and sticks in the story for Chapter 5). She really does not like nature, and instead thinks that factory settings are genuinely beautiful.
"Natural" NatalieBasically Veronica's opposite; someone Stella met in the desert trail in Chapter 5 complaining about the place, who deeply enjoys nature and walks through all kinds of settings. Basically, she proves that Stella can even get with two different people that have opposing viewpoints.
"Whipped" WandaInitially seeming to be one of the Powerlessess signing up for the Stellar Silver Knights, it turns out she was not interested in heroics and all and confused them for some kind of BDSM club. She's Stella main fling for Chapter 6,
A wannabe web celebrity trying to get as many views as possible.
Various races that were unknown to mankind until Carlson, being Carlson, happened to stumble upon them in his mission to get rid of the Hundred Demons. They come in nine-hundred varieties of humanoids with many different aspects, several of which seem extremely similar and "overlap." Eldbrash is a Chilled Water Guardian, and Kameel is a Sky Guardian.
- Gag Boobs: All of the seen presidents are gigantic compared to their citizens (which is part of their election ceremony), and all three of them have enormous, bare racks.
A holographic AI created by Lock-On
- The Cameo: He's as close to a Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group crossover that's part of the main OU storyline canon as you'll get.
The Great OneA very mysterious, rumored deity that is widely speculated by both the Eighth Circle and the Unitias to be the reason for their and Carlson's inexplicable overpowered abilities manifesting after fourteen and a half years of them(/the Generator, in the case of the Unitias) existing.
- Author Avatar: Heavily implied to be some kind of self-insert god of Great Pikmin Fan himself, considering how they both share the term "Great." Great One is also stated to be obsessed with color spectrums, color-coding, large numbers, and nudity, all of which are things GPF admits to being fond of. In this case,
- The Ghost: Does not appear in Ordinarily proper, unlike Kristie of Emazh In, GPF's "other" major god-like beingEmazh In spoilers . Fan implied that he might show up in Extraordinarily, although it seems very unlikely as of the first seven chapters.
- Greater-Scope Villain: It's unclear where he stands morality-wise (if it's even comprehencible at all), but if the myths are true, he is the cause of the Big Bad's powers. As well as most of the Big Good's. He probably leans closer to the "Big Neutral" if anything, if not for the implication that he gave a man the tools needed to be a powerful leader towards human extinction just to see what would happen. It's implied that he's a huge dick and none of the Less Ones even like him, so they're not around him.
- Humanoid Abomination: He somehow existed before time, space, forces, etc were even a thing. Those aspects — and most things in OU's verse, according to the myths — were actually created by the Less Ones. All the Great One really did was weird the Less Ones out and, out of boredom, "blessed" Carlson/the Unitias/Fred, and made the eight Shiny Rocks.
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall: He's not actually "the author of the story as a character," but what little we know about him fits Great Pikmin Fan perfectly. Basically, Ordinarily United is GPF breaking his own rules about overpowered "chosen" characters out-universe for fun; in-universe, a god that's like GPF decided hey, wouldn't it be funny if he made some characters absurdly overpowered? The same situation.
- The Older Immortal: The mythos say that while the six Less Ones are older than the universe itself and the "space" (as in, the currently-existing galaxies) of the Parallel, the Great One's "creation" marks the start of all existence.
- The Gods Must Be Lazy: All he really did was made three people overpowered, one of which can exponentially grow in number. Then he just sat back and watched the fireworks go off between the three of them.
- Self-Deprecation: Like Professor Dove, he's the closest thing the story has to a "direct" self-insert. And he's almost unversally considered to be an asshole. A favorite-playing asshole, referencing how much Fan worked on Ordinarily United at the expense of almost all of his other stories slowing in production a lot, if not going on hiatus completely. Also, his own "Less Ones" hate him, according to the myths said by Blazing Fast and further elaborated by the Eighth Circle; they refuse to serve him and prefer living existences on their own.
- Top God: Even if one does not count the soul beings as "gods," all depictions of him by soul being-kind show him with six smaller figures — one green, one red, one blue, one yellow, one pink, and one cyan. Eighth Circle says that they are are "Less Ones" that are still extremely powerful and control aspects of reality itself, but they're small cookies compared to the Great One. There are much more detailed, gigantic statues of these things in each of the Coliseums around the seven continents (the seventh, in Antartica close by the Pit, has an even bigger statue of Great One himself) that all show them as topless women who only wear skirts with nothing underneath.
- Troll: It's suggested that he made three people — one human and two soul beings — so absurdly powerful just for the hell of it, to see what they would do.
- Walking Spoiler: Ladies and gentlemen, the reason as to why Carlson, the Eighth Circle, and possibly the Unitias are as over-the-top powerful as they are. Or, probably. It's what the Big Bad thinks. An even bigger spoiler is that when Carlson, Eighth Circle, and Unitia One all contact one-another, they end up being teleported to a floating platform with the Less Ones all on it, and a bright light implied to be the Great One above.
Less OnesSix powerful deities that represent "abstract aspects of stability:" existence/"dimension" (green), motion/"strength"/"time" (red), logic/"math" (blue), space (yellow), void (pink), and life (aqua).
- Expy: Keeping in line with the very vague Zelda-esque lore, these people are the Golden Goddesses times two. Except that there's one "god" above them, and the six of them hate him.
- Last Episode, New Character: They do not appear proper until near the end of the penultimate chapter in the story, and only briefly. It is implied that a later storyline of Extraordinarily will focus on them, but it's been more of a Monster of the Week ecchi hybrid as of Chapter 10.
- No Name Given: They don't
Show Within a Show Characters
The lead protagonist of a "children's" Show Within a Show titled The High-Splash Adventures of Wavette. Her series is the Ordinarily United counterpart to Woah! from Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group. They're both over-the-top absurd shows within the stories that would obviously not be accepted in the real world as a regular public television series, and clips of them are shown every so often (per chapter here; per volume in SBIG). This because of its raunchy content, but Woah! because it's just a pretty stupid show in general.
- All Anime Is Naughty Tentacles: A variation in that it was created and produced in America (and Ordinarily United was written in America, but it's set in Canada). More than one clip seen here has Wavette and her entire crew being stripped and attacked by a tentacle monster. Ironically, it has more tentacle jokes than the universe's actual anime parody, The Unviewable Panties of Ishiko-Chan. It's implied that tentacle-fetish work is a global thing in OU's world, not just something mainly found from Japan or the US.
- Expy: Wavette is effectively a "cute-ified," good guy Rip with bluer hair.
- Long-Runners: In-universe. It's been going on since the 70s. Unlike Steve Buhvillen's Intriguing Group, which takes place in the "present year" but of a radically different timeline, this takes place slightly in the future... of a slightly different timeline where Canada took over most of the world shortly after the release of the first Pikmin game (the Pikmin series was tied to this).
- Making a Splash: Wavette herself has the ability to use water.
- Subverted Kids Show: Her series is considered a childrens' show in-universe, but it definitely would not fly as one in our world. In just about any country. This is pointed out when it debuts, with Carlson being overjoyed to see a new episode of
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: And it sticks with the trope name. Her allies similarly have hair of various colors. Some of the later-introduced characters have more than one hair color, much like the Unitias. It's implied that Wavette's crew was later based on the Unitias.

EFFI Origin Story
It started off as, like, a joke thing that might have originally been a low-effort "shitpost" story similar to Axe Effect: Giffillions. Something where maybe .GIFfany tricked Soos in to thinking she was nice, but then wrapped him up with wire and dragged him to get downloaded to her computer. It'd be a black comedy. While dragging him, she'd come across Darlene dragging Stan in a wrapping of spider web. Darlene would look at .GIFfany, smirk, and say something like "Men, am I right?" Then I thought about rounding things off with Pyronica finding a way to capture Ford or something stupid like that. Then I thought back to this old copy-pasta I saw on GameFAQS's Super Smash Bros. Brawl boards, about Link spying on people in the shower. I think the "original" was with Peach, Zelda, and Samus, but I also found a variation where he was spying on Captain Falcon and... two other dudes, all I can remember was the line "Captain Falcon swung his sweaty *** from side to side." (The original was about Zelda's hair; and yes, the censorship was part of the post.) I thought "Imagine if someone did something like that, but it was Dipper or something, and he was peeping on like, Pyronica, .GIFfany, and Darlene. And then they found out and promptly kicked his ass. (I hate pervert characters. I know Dipper is canonically better than that, but making him in to some straw pervert played for laughs sounds exactly like the kind of stupid crap I'd expect from the sort of cheap fan fiction that hypothetical story would have made fun of. So I'm not mocking Dipper's character, I'm mocking that sort of stuff.) But both of those got me thinking about a semi-legit, kind of long-ish story involving the three of them. Especially as I had looked around and found that, to my knowledge, nobody has actually done a story about the three of them. (Nothing was advertized as such on fanfiction.net. In Archive of Our Own, with unlimited character tagging, it's more definite — there's barely any .GIFfany-tagged fics, and fewer Darlene ones. By the way, no, copy-paste "It's really similar to the events of the show down to conversations happening word for word but I swear after 39 chapters totally new content will happen! See! Dipper and Pacifica actually kiss here! They didn't in the show! Yes, all that copy-paste was completely necessary for that!" doesn't count.) So I think I ended up with the embrassing honor of writing fanfiction.net's first-ever fic with naked .GIFfany, naked Melody, naked Darlene, and Pyronica (who was already naked) at the same time and antics about Ford and Soos' asses with Stan's "Stanhood." (When I say "antics about Ford and Soos' asses with Stan's 'Stanhood,'" I don't mean like THAT. There's no fhacking going on between man and brother, or man and son-figure. If you want Stan fhacking then there's Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage, but it's not with another Pines it's with the Summerween Trickster.)
- Rose: Low and kind of "motherly"
- Kathody: Just think of any "energetic showoff" voice.
- Sandy: Low, like a female version of your "stereotypical hippie" voice.
- Cardia: Actually, really kind of high-pitched and all over the place.
- Sonia: Low and quiet. Hell, even post-character development.
- Wendy: Hrm... now that I think about it, giving her a Luanne-esque voice but with more of a DRAMATIC SHOUT would be kind of funny.
- Burnda: Brenda's voice from Perfect Hair Forever. "But Brenda doesn't talk!" She talks like once, in Japanese.
- Burrda: See Burnda.
- Dove: I can't help but picture her sounding like Gimme from Wonderful 101 but that's not it.
- .GIFfany: She sounds exactly like .GIFfany from Gravity Falls. That episode did the perfect job at capturing the voice I had in mind while I was writing run:gifocalypse. It's almost like she was a character from canon that I directly put in to the fic.
(The things in brackets are the "symbols" at the corners of the cards. Like the Undertale Tarot cards.)
- Fool: Stella [Baton, pizza slice, an "XXX" symbol, winking emoticon]
- Magician: Lock-On [Robotic eye, his Lock-On eye insignia, a jungle tree, a crosshair]
- High Priestess: Gatherer [Her "X" icon, the Slashed Spade icon, a simplified design of her "New Earth", a broken heart] [(OR a flame, water drop, rock, and a bottle of alcohol considering her teleport-catchphrase- nah...)]
- Empress: Unitia One [The number 1, the coordinates "(0,0)," a flame, an inverted heart]
- Emperor: Carlson [The letter C, a boomerang, a water bottle, an upright heart]
- Hierophant: Hoodieath...? [Pair of panties, a slashed rectangle representing a broken censor bar, a hoodie, and a... "shockwave symbol" representing her main ability to "store hits"]
- Lovers: Unitiakind; Three and Four in the center specifically ["3+4!," "C+1!," "Harem!," and several small hearts together]
- Chariot: Inventor [Nerve cell, "A+," a hand in a "grabbing pose," his "I" symbol]
- Strength: Leon [A dog-like face, his hat, a fang, smiling emoticon]

- Death: Hundred Demons (all of them in general; except Eighth Circle) [Tomb exterior, paper representing the list, the number "99," Eighth Circle's eight-concentric circle logo]
- Temperance: Her Bone [Bone, mouth of sharp teeth, drill, bag/"wallet bag"]
- Devil: Eighth Circle [Horns, pitchfork, "devil tail," flower]
- Tower: Yuullieke [All four corners are just "YES"]
- Star: Transparaghost [Bedsheet/Pac-Man esque ghost, circle half-filled in while half-empty (duality thingy), ribbon, spotlight]
- Moon: Ruby ["Psychic energy wave" symbol, leaping stick figure, cake, knife]

... Reading Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage/Escape From Fanservice Island/Ultimate Chaotic Mysterious Dark Power isn't required to understand Ordinarily United at all but it would kind of help. Although shit like the Unitias being solar-powered might feel like a very redundant explanation if you've read that.
Not YET but it's my planOkay, I updated Four Edges to be stupider. Now "Satan" inexplicably survives Nzyvo's attack, kidnaps Soos, and strips him naked through slow and gradual clothing damage. I know I don't like that stuff and Dove's writing the story in-universe yet Dove's also supposed to kind of double on my opinions in a self-deprecating way, but let's just say Dove's kind of a hypocrite that will write about her husbando getting I'd like to think that RG is a simple or possibly complex story told in a simple way but in all honesty maybe it just is a simple story told in a (needlessly) complex way.
- Rose: Hands of other copies (she's the most liked of them by the other copies with the largest number of followers)
- Kathody: Seals, but they're not on her, instead they're floating around dramatically.
- Searah: Water that is arranged to form the "perfect coverage," as she's a perfectionist.
- Sandy: Various "tribute" artifacts to the "Lightning Goddess"
- Cardia: Blood splatters.
- Bubbles: Bath steam, in contrast to her usual bubbles.
- Leona: Like someone brushed censor-paint over her.
- Sonia: Floating magic music notes.
- Dian: Smoke, distinct from her usual clouds of purple poison, resembling an inverse of Bubbles'.
- Wendy: Hamburgers are covering her ("Sug Night")
- Shannon: Glares of light
- Burnda: Outright censor bars (she's the meta one)
- Burrda: Burnda's hands (the "white-knighting" of her pre-developent)
- Dove: She's very deliberately placing objects to cover her even in mid-combat, reflecting how it's kind of a "habit" of hers
- Eve: It's "glitched" out/with an odd lines/"pixel" effect
Might move elsewhere — possible new Emazh In form of biomes
The old "system" was that out of the rainbow ring etc, each biome would start with a bright/"pure-color"/"nature" variant, a dark/"shade"/"dark magic" variant, a light/"tint"/"light magic" variant, and a dull/"tone"/"technological" variant. But something rubbing me the wrong way about how the two magic ones are, to some degree, possibly "natural." So I just took a page from Dwarf Fortress and replaced "benign" with "technological." Think of it kinda like the time periods of Sonic CD: Dekstop, Labostoep, Infinity Amusement Park, the Parallel Pocket, Sloeth Core, and the Center of the Galaxy do not have alternate variations/counterparts.Omega: Possible name of the "Scarlet Stone-Weapon." It's the same "base" twelve: Red, orange, yellow, chartreuse, green, jade, cyan, azure, blue, violet, magenta, pink. But what specific things he does depends on the story, where they do appear. In 361 they're flanked by twenty-nine other hues in between them for a full, gigantic spectrum circle, even if the differences going from color to color are practically invisible. In Emazh In there are a few in-betweens, but less ones of note (certainly not a full 360 in total), but each of the main twelve has a whopping eight counterparts based on hue and saturation.
Clear the "center"(/plain) biome of the group — the main Charged Emazh in the rainbow ring — to get a full health up, adding another red heart. The eight "other" biomes in the group, however, each just give a quarter of a health upgrade. Four of those must be collected to get an additional red heart; they do not add quarter-hearts individually. Thus, each sector has three red hearts to gain — one from the main Charge, and two from the eight Charges leading up to her. Across the fourteen sectors, forty-two hearts can be obtained in Part 1, leading to a total possible health of forty-five red hearts counting Olivia's starting three hearts. However, when it comes to Part 1, the only way to obtain that much health is through going near the Friendship Route. Due to the requirements of setting up the Iris fight, this means having forty-four red hearts. This also makes Iris the only boss fight in the entire game to have a specific fixed amount the player may likely have when facing her, although it can be lower if the player simply does not collect the heart-extenders after the bosses. In Part 2, red heart containers may be freely extended through just finding
|Technology||Natural/"Light Nature"||Heavy Nature|
|Light Magic||Guiding Code||Fantastic||Binding Love|
|No Magic||System||Plain||Thrashing Wilds|
|Dark Magic||Corrupted Code||Ominous||Eldritch|
No Magic/NaturalRelatively easy to understand, especially a combination of both. This is the closest to our world — with most of the plant and animal life being without fantastic elements (no magic) and not being made from cyber code/gigantic (or tiny) beast (natural). Ironically, the "plain" biomes are the ones that the main characters out of the satelites live in, and are the most important
Heavy NatureClose in terms of general themes to Dwarf Fortress's "savage" biomes, filled with overgrown plantlife and containing animal life that could be giant (as well as tiny counterparts). Heavy nature-biomes tend to

This also makes Iris the only boss fight in the entire game to have a specific fixed amount the player may likely have when facing her, although it can be lower if the player simply does not collect the heart-extenders after the bosses. In Part 2, red heart containers may be freely extended through just finding
??? (MUGEN, again, sort of)
- Author's Saving Throw:
- With their appearances in Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage and Escape From Fanservice Island, it seemed as though the Professors were undergoing Villain Decay and/or Badass Decay — especially Dove, who in run:gifocalypse was a legitimately ominous and intimidating villain that had several chapters worth of buildup, only being spoken about by occasion from the other professors. When she finally appeared, her Establishing Character Moment was her swearing out at Mabel and effortlessly firing a beam that blew up the entire town of Gravity Falls, although she still had hints of her goofy self (especially after being subject to Defeat Means Friendship). Journals and Escape, in addition to Fan's oneshots, somewhat flanderized her in to being a goof who was utterly never taken seriously. This ended up coming across as turning the professors from their intent, of being a seemingly Quirky Miniboss Squad that had a lot of depth and genuine threat to them, in to utter jokes. Fan rectified this by slightly retconning them as of Ultimate, firmly establishing that retcon in the new run:gifocalypse (which, long story short, pretty much killed off the SBIG series for good), where in both stories they are back to being threatening, yet still having their humorous quirks. Fan's original story expies of them were "split" — the character-based ones that could be very intimidating became the Rainbow Ring of Emazh In (and the number of "professors" of note exploded), while the more goofy, laid back jokes that bicker a lot became Unitias Three-Sixteennote .

If I had to guess:
- GPF's Author Avatar, mostly because the real Fan's uncertainty of how to write him (the character) results in him flip-flopping between being a jerkass to the other cast or being a bit obsessive with his personal "meme/injoke characters," neither of which is considered that amusing. He is killed off in all of his appearances in what's supposed to be a Take That, Scrappy!, but even that got old. It's generally thought that Professor Dove does a slightly better job at being the "jerkass nobody likes who also shares the opinions of the author, just grotesquely exaggerated," as well as her two successors Maria (who is based on Dove's initial characterization as an ominous and powerful threat) and Unitia Nine (who is based on her temporary Flanderization in Journals and Escape From Fanservice Island as a goof that tries too hard to come off as smart).
- Omega Toonwife Battle Simulator:
- Most of the party members have lukewarm opinions at worst (and even they have minor, minor followings), but one character almost unanimously hated is Karla Tonn. Her gimmick is that there are no sidequests or payment or items needed to recruit her at all and that she's by far the strongest party member in the game, but she comes at the steep price in that recruiting her permanently makes the entire party "naked," in that they cannot wear any armor or even badges. While this is negligible if you've been chowing down on Defense Jellybeans (which are permanent stat-ups just like the Beans from most of the Mario and Luigi games), it still takes a lot of the game's depth out as straight-up items and party setup become the only customization options. While she can be ignored for the "White Key" and "Black Key" endings — and she usually is — she's required for the Ultigarden as you need all party members to reach it, and while Word of God is that it's not meant to be a Golden Ending or even a "True Ending," players consider it so since it is a Brutal Bonus Level. In other words, entirely thanks to this assbag, sacrificing a key game element and making it a more tedious, less customized "hit and get hit" system is part of the "extra content." None of this is even getting in to how much of a jerkass she is to Eve and Lilith, if you head over to Karla after Lilith's Defeat Means Friendship just before the Sky Studios. Even her gimmick of being a powerful nudist is not that special, as there are several other "naked" party members even without Karla forcing the whole gang to strip (although most of them aren't technically human).
- Out of the "tag-along not-really companion" characters that harmlessly bug Eve and company throughout their journey through the Order of the Plant's empire, Traesop (the sole "companion" in Bland Forest) is considered the most forgettable by a long shot. Which is an accomplishment, since he's the first. Compared to the quirky and genuinely nice Office Workers/Anibuds in the Platform Mountain, the initial strawman-seeming Polygon Meme Band and Fighters of Sensitivity before you find that their respective leaders both have Hidden Depths at the Metal Industry, and Logo's Good Twin Fu at Sky Studios, this guy's main gimmick is that he's a wannabe villain who critiques the "plot of the game" itself like it is a game, and he has a specific fixation on the "moral" it might be teaching others. It's a gimmick generally agreed to wear thin and he especially sticks out like a sore thumb compared to LegBoot OriginalPants, who is generally considered the most humorous of the characters that is eventually fought as a boss due to how far his "easter eggs" (really more like in-universe ripoffs of various other indie games) get thrown Off the Rails every single time and his sudden, out of nowhere sexual advances on Eve.
- Nzyvo Northwest in Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage was intended to be a Parody-Villain Sue and deliberately meant to be hated as a villain or a hero. In the former case, in that she's a spotlight hogging Replacement Scrappy for Bill Cipher (who was still in the story, just heavily demoted) as well as being a ludicrously overpowered "edgy recolor" of Mabel. In the latter case, it's as she's Easily Forgiven and generally was meant to feel more like an edgy plot device with a shoehorned "tragic story." In both cases, she's meant to draw ire for being unreasonably cruel to Dipper (although this is part of SBIG's love for tearing at "underdog"-esque characters that get strong attatchments from the fandom, in some cases even to the point of washing away their flaws)
- Despite being meant to feel like a Scrappy character and definitely being hated in-universe, she's still not cared about at all and even Great Pikmin Fan isn't really that fond of her, greatly prefering Mable the Typomonster as the actual Big Bad and Evil Counterpart to Mabel. To the point where Nzyvo initially had no real role in Chapter 7 and Fan would remark that he had trouble involving her in the story when it became less "Light of Courage" and more "Gurren Lagann meets Scott Pilgrim."
- Awesome Mc Cool Name: Rain Perthrocard.
- HRT-1: Swinging Blade
- HRT-2: Blazing Fast (who was actually going to be more like a robot kinda shaped like the number "2" — I didn't finalize anything with his old design, I just wanted it so that if you looked at everybody from the right, they'd loosely be in the shape of their numbers in some way)
- HRT-3: Assily Blast (made while Inventor had a toilet humor phase)
- HRT-4: DEATH MECHA (was originally not going to talk like that guy from The Room)
- HRT-5: Scale Breath (originally "The Dragon")
- HRT-6: Girlaser
- HRT-7: Dudenergy
- HRT-8: Eighth Circle (originally "Big Suit" and did not look even remotely Satan-y)
- HRT-9: Unitia Origin (basically a completely different character from what she is now. If you think UO/U1 is kind of an asshole, she's a saint compared to her prototype...)
- Unitia One: Sorry about that. Cryipasto is not my younger brother — he existed for a thousand years before my SOUL came in to existence — but... let's face it, he might as well be. The guy is an ass. Anyway, I'm UNITIA ORIGIN. I watch over the RUINS, looking for any humans that fall down here.
Blazing Fast: Look, I'm supposed to be on the watch for humans, but... eh. I don't care. You guys are all clearly going to wipe the rest of us out anyway. So all I do is wait for that and smoke. Now, my... "buddy," Swinging Blade... he's a human-hunting fanatic. Trust me, it gets old.
Swinging Blade: HUMAN! It is I, the amazing SWINGING BLADE, who will obtain top position as the head of all the Underground! Unlike that stupid Unitia Origin, who was CLEARLY just kept alive out of nepetaism!
Ninjssassin: As long as you are IN MY SHADOW you cannot escape!
DEATH MECHA: Okay in The Room what's the name of the woman who is tearing Johnny apart? A: Marka. B: Buddy. C: Lisa. D: Meg.
And the absolute most obvious one, Eighth Circle: Carlson. It was nice to meet you. Goodbye. (Puts cape on, whips out pitchfork, destroys the MERCY button.) It's a trend of "mirror matches." Steve vs Mudvin. Carlson vs Ninjssassin. Eve vs Lilith. ... No, I swear that's all a coincidence. They're actually inspired by .GIFfany and stuff, from Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage. I wanted the first one to kind of not have the same pink color scheme, so I went with inverting the hair color — dark jade green. Then figured, what the fuck, there's going to be billions and billions of them so pink will have to be used eventually, so I just made Unitia Two the pink-haired one to get it out of the way.
Brooke was never actually intended to be a recruitable party member. I mean, ever. It's not even a "scrapped idea," it was something that never once crossed my mind. Insa and Sam were both also just meant to be side-people that weren't recruitable.
[Eh, if I decide to kill all of the Single Digits bar Res, Ninjssassin, and obviously Eighth Circle and Unitia One before the final arc:] The last handful of Demons left standing represent the six unique pieces of a Chess board.
- Eighth Circle, King:
- Last, Queen:
- Ninjssassin, Knight: Obvious as Carlson's foil, and how she attacks with
- Res, Bishop: The "mage"-themed guy is "close enough." But his "attack from an odd angle" strategy, even though it fails spectacularly, summarizes how Bishops attack diagonally.
