Fridge: South Park: The Stick of Truth

Fridge Brilliance

  • When entering your character's name, Cartman insists that the player's name is 'Douchebag'. Of course, only a douchebag would want to put himself into an episode of South Park as The Hero.
    • Or maybe the developers didn't want to provide voices for every possible name you'd wish to enter.
    • Also, the player character can do some pretty lousy things during the game, at least some of them are required to progress the plot. A valid way to interept his character is that he really is a bit of a jerk.
  • "Princess Kenny" seems out of left field and seems to have been done just because it's funny, until you realize that Kenny is a Lovable Sex Maniac and the crossdressing is likely due to his obsession with titties and women in general, which makes even more sense when you consider his I Have Boobs, You Must Obey! move.
  • After defeating the penultimate boss, you unlock ninja stars. At first it seems like just another reward, but those were the weapon that Kenny bought in "Good Times With Weapons." Considering just who the final boss is, they are more than appropriate.
  • Why is Craig the only one who switches sides & joins with Clyde? As the saying goes, there is no honor among thieves.
  • Why the Military is unable to defeat the zombie outbreak and all the insanity that happens in South Park, while the children are able to fight with toy weapons? The children have the Stick of Truth. Whoever controls the Stick, controls the Universe. Since it has been used into a LARP game, only LARP players are able to do a damn thing. The game has become so Serious Business, it's affecting reality itself.
    • In the YMMV page, it has been mentioned that the Big Bad Government Guy really believed that the stick was some sort of magical weapon. But, if you really think about it, even though he isn't a player, he still was able to do something important with it: since BBGG isn't a player and can't play, the temptation of the Stick converts a player to his side - Kenny. And BBGG is in full control even after Kenny zombifies himself.
  • Being a video game adaptation, this is to be considered an Alternate Continuity, right? Not necessarily, since the end of the game gives a very good reason why The New Kid doesn't appear in the actual show.
  • The New Kid telling the other boys "Screw you guys, I'm going home" at the end of the game makes a lot of sense when you remember they've happily been calling him "Douchebag" for three days instead of his actual name.
    • Though it's possible that he just had a lot on his mind, given he just found out about his past and probably has a lot of questions about it to ask his parents. Considering he's cool to play with them the next day in the post-game, maybe he's fine with being called Douchebag.
  • While it might seem odd (but funny) that Kenny is electing to play as a princess, this is not the first time he expressed some feminine interests. In "Tweek vs. Craig," he was quite happy being in Home Economics which was really all about how to secure a rich husband
  • That butterfly in Butters skill where turns into Professor Chaos. There is a theory about how a flap of a butterfly's wings can cause a tornado in the distant future. The theory is commonly known as "The Chaos Theory". Guess what Prof. Chaos is about?
  • Tweek is a Barbarian. In 3rd Ed. of Dungeons & Dragons, Barbarians have the highest speed, but not necessarily a high Dexterity to do fine tasks.
  • The New Kid's real name becomes much funnier when considering that when Skyrim was released, Bethesda offered free games for life to anyone who named their child Dovahkiin, and at least one person took them up on that offer.

Fridge Horror

  • If you remove the meta-humor for it, being trapped on an alien spaceship after being abducted for so long with no food that you're forced to subsist on mutagenic goo is pretty horrifying.
