Funny: Wiki Sandbox
Generic MUGEN-ish info. X: Light punch; Y: Medium punch; Z: Heavy punch; A: Light kick; B: Medium kick; C: Heavy kickEverything below here I didn't even really start on.Zapp Brannigan is a male example of Dangerously Short Skirt?
- Life: 2000
- Power: 10000
- Attack: 240?
- Defense: 200?
- Striker Gauge: Yes. (Cheaper Eddy, Hank Hill Smoking, Diablo Strider, Giffany (Sprite isn't finished; she looks cut off in several spots), Red Bull (Sprite isn't finished), future: Cheaper Ed and X versions of all strikers.)
- Normal colors/"Orange"
- "Digital" (Everything pitch-black save for outline and other parts, which are green, creating an odd "neon sign" image)
- "Inverted" (Inverted colors)
- "Gray" (Grayscale)
- "Rainbow" (A lighter version of the grayscale palette, by default set to change different colors)
- Kamina and a Falcon Punch-giving Captain Falcon fly into eachother quickly. There is a flash of light, and suddenly Cheaper Edd is in the location they meet, just standing up.
- Naruto(-kun), Sonic 1-styled Sonic, Arcade game-styled Homer Simpson, and Mario Teaches Typing-styled Mario are standing in the place of the player. Cheaper Edd runs over to them, the screen turns black with white flashes, and they are all gone sans Cheaper Edd, who is now in proper position to begin the fight.
- The Hungry Pumkin is standing there and stays "I'm very hungry!" Cheaper Edd then runs up to him and kicks him from behind, and he quickly flies off the stage.
- A normal Edd standing there, then seven Chaos Emeralds fly into him. After a flash of yellow, he appears to be glowing, yet is crossing his arms and shaking his head disaprovingly. Suddenly, many more Emeralds fly into him, and he turns into Cheaper Edd (though if you use the first palette, there does not appear to be any visual difference).
- A rare one-in-100 chance intro is him simply in his "shocked" pose (as in surprised, not electrocuted) shouting "Oh my lord!" This is supposed to lead into an intro where a normal Edd prays, gets infused with some power, then hijacks that power source and becomes Cheaper Edd.
Homer Simpson Army
- Life: 10000 (Supposedly 1000 per clone, but it doesn't work right)
- Power: 4000
- Attack: 100
- Defense: 100
- Striker Gauge: No.
- Homer Army has two new palettes right now. Here's the first: Pink pants, which I have dubbed "breastcancer." Future palettes may include Gamzee Makara from Homestuck and at least one more to give a good, round twelve, the limit (unless you have some odd workarounds) for how many selectable palettes a character has.
- Mostly dark gray, aside from some key red parts (starting with the eyes but changing to everything else so that the character's coloring would look nicer), dubbed "Dark." Similar to Cheaper Edd's black palette. As a "bonus," the waves caused from his Hell Candy Bombs are also red. This is planned to be the only palette right now to change that, but if I'm bored I might edit the others to have the shockwaves match their pant colors.
- The others/first nine are the same as S.M.R.T. Homer: Blue, green, red, orange, purple, spring green, gray, dark gray, and Peter Griffin (the latter being the only one with more than a pant change: Along with dark green pants, his shirt is even whiter and his skin is tan).
Differences From Rox Howard Clones (Currently; in the future they'll work in more similar ways)To be changed:
- Spawn from the top of the screen instead of either side, but still seemingly at set points.
- Slowly fade away instead of binking away when knocked out.
- Instantly revert back to their stand pose when the round ends, regardless of if they win or not.
- Maybe this is because they are set to each have the full health of a regular Homer (originally it was 100 apiece, but during my test runs every single attack knocked the clone out), but these guys seem to be almost impossible to kill just by damage alone. However, knocking them on their backs seems to wipe them out at very low damages.
- If two or more clones are defeated at the same time, only one tenth is subtracted from their overall lifebar instead of the more balanced and less buggy "one tenth for each clone." Thankfully, clones that are defeated apart from eachother do not have to face this.
- When played by the AI, each clone can act individually. In fact, this may have something to do with the AI, but it even seems like each clone gives themselves a specific task at some times, like one of them tosses donuts while another charges or a third keeps spamming the hypers. That's pretty cool. When played by a player, all clones all act at the same time unless desinced through action. The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard? Probably, but I don't really want to fix that.
- Actually this is more of a similarity (as both have misleading images, well when it comes to the tiny selection icon), but whatever: Instead of an army of Homers or whatever, the portrait is Hank Hill smoking with his memetic "You see Bobby? Slooooow" face. His win portrait is a picture of Hank's naked butt. The character select icon is a sprite of Hank but this is just a placeholder, since that sprite is from Deviantart and I don't want to release a full character that uses that without technically getting permission. (Though stealing shit from KOTH screencaps is fair game. Heheheheheh.)
- Life: 2000
- Power: 5000
- Attack: 50 (Or was it 75; I'll have to check. Either way it's below average)
- Defense: 100
- Striker Gauge: Yes. (The Ghosts of Cheaper Edd's Victims, Missiles, Nude Bart Skateboarding.)
- "Full GPF" (Basic standard; everyone gets some unique text color. A1 trolls have a slightly different color scheme, counterparts to the humans are mostly different colors, guardians get slightly altered shades, ancestors also have minor variations, counterparts to the descendant trolls are light versions of those colors, counterparts to the ancestors are dull/gray versions of the original descendant colors.)
- "Counterpart Swap" (Every character slot switches places with their counterpart/original; everything else (EG the colors not directly associated with one HS character, like Hank Hill's slots) remains the same. EG John now has the color scheme of his counterpart.)
- "Guardian Swap" (Every character slot switches places with their guardian/ancestor self; everything else remains the same. EG John now has "Poppop"'s (AKA Harl in this case) color scheme.)
- "Diagonal" (Every descendant original switches places with their ancestor's counterpart, and every descendant counterpart switches places with their ancestor's original; everything else remains the same. EG John now has "counter-Poppop"'s color scheme.)
- "Trollstuck, Tinted" (Every HS character is one of twelve tints of gray, each corresponding to the closest non-mutant blood caste of the trolls. Everything else is the same aside from Hank Hill, who has a purple (Gamzee-caste) tint and black hair.)
- "Trollstuck, Not Tinted" (Every HS character is the same shade of neutral gray, Hank Hill is also changed accordingly and still retains the black hair.)
- "Merry Christmas" (Every HS character is either a pale red or a light green based on the result of making a checkered pattern in the palette list. More saturated shades of red and green appear on some accessories, like the sword, but other than that everything else is the same. Even Hank Hill.)
- "Peachy" (Every HS character is white, as is Hank Hill and he has black hair. Everything else is the same.)
- "Okay, Fine, Canon" (A1 trolls now have the same color as their A2 stand-ins, guardians and ancestors share the same colors as their respective descendant selves. Counterparts do not share, but the general style has changed to match their originals. Everything else is the same.)
- "Obligatory Invert" (Every single color is inverted, even ones that aren't tied to the HS characters.)
- "Nepetaswap" (Every HS character is now colored like Nepeta, as with Hank Hill.)
- "Spooky Shadow" (Everything, HS character and otherwise, is pitch-black aside from certain parts of red, most commonly the pupils. This is a 12P mode that will summon an invincible Waterwraith to run over enemies when Cheesecakestuck is against someone declared cheap.)
- Just one, probably: A poorly drawn image of the GEICO Gecko (not actually small though; about the size of Kung Fu Man) moonwalking into the stage while "Cheesesteak, cheesesteak!" plays in the background (The "cheesesteak shuffle"). He stops as a buzzer sounds, the word "CHEESECAKE" appears over him with the "CAKE" part underlined, and he looks at the player with a shocked expression and his hands at his cheeks. Then he akwardly moonwalks away. Cheesecakestuck itself drops into the level after.
- There might also be character-specific intros.
- Probably the one that makes the most sense. There's a flash of light, and everyone is now seperated and posing together as a team.
- Turns into Hank Hill, a large image close to the screen (as with one of Dee Bee Kaw's intros), who tells the viewer that what they just saw might have contained some brief nudity.
- Turns into a poorly-drawn MS Paint replica of the infamous "Excorcist Girl," while a lame "Boo!" sound effect plays. The picture does not even take up the whole screen.
- Turns into John (well, John's Cheesecakestuck version anyway), who moons the players, then the character cycles through all members of the lineup, all in the same "mooning" position as well.
- Spongebob (again, represented through bad MS Paint work) dashes into the stage, and suddenly a giant black screen reading "This video has been removed for violating copyright rules. Sorry about that" (or however that message does), complete with the frowning red Youtube rectangle, appears and takes over the screen. This might only be available when the entire match is over, like Dooby Dummy's "New World Order" message.
- Life: 500
- Power: 1000 (currently 3000, but that will be fixed)
- Attack: 100?
- Defense: 100
- Striker Gauge: No.
List of TagsThe first sixty, and the numbered tags, are the ones that he uses as his "main attack." Everything after is in another situation.
- Life: 1000
- Power: 3000
- Attack: 100
- Defense: 100
- (He's supposed to be a "Boring" character in those regards)
- Striker Gauge: Yes? (Haven't decided who though.)
- Life: 1200
- Power: 3000
- Attack: 100
- Defense: 100
- Striker Gauge: No. One of her hypers will have a similar "random attack" factor, and I don't want two major randomizers unless that's the character's key gimmick. Which it isn't.
- Plays like a Smash Bros fighter: X does regular attacks, Y does specials, Z does hypers. For smash attacks, A is used. A and X have the same attacks in the air in all cases. B is to shield (which can turn into a brief dodge roll or step if pressed down, left, or right; can also air-dodge if used in the air) and C is to grab/throw.
- Lethal Joke Character.
Changes From Her Super Smash Bros variant
- (Asthetic) The biggest and most obvious is that, as the name implies, the skirt part of her dress is missing. This is a reference to a testing feature in Melee and Brawl that made her skirt invisible, presumably to test animations better.
- (Asthetic) She's drawn with original-ish sprites.
- (Asthetic) Up-special changed to riding on a rocketing Rosalina and using a hang-glider from Daisy to get back down.
- (Nerf) Cannot move in the air while gliding down, and cannot re-toggle the gliding state after disabling it.
- (Nerf) Pitiful shield power.
- (Buff) Peach Blossom is not available with this character, but it is instead replaced with four hypers that loosely correspond to her specials.
- (Nerf) Vegetable is always a new face that does rather weak damage, and instead of carrying it around (despite Fan claiming that it's likely possible within MUGEN's engine), she tosses it instantly, making it function as a projectile with a lot of starting lag.
- (Buff) Peach Bomber now has Rosalina and Daisy using the move becide her, expanding the vertical range.
- (Serious Nerf) Currently can no longer hover, but an update is planned to give her hovering.
(Nerf)(Asthetic) Taunt is her "Aw, did I win?" quote.
- (Notice) Smash attacks currently cannot be charged up but apparantly use their fullest possible variant, and are planned to be chargable in the future. This is not a buff as it is temporary and it could fuck up people used to Smash physics.
- Yeah, Um, Some People Want You Out of NSMB Because Wario and Waluigi or Something Like That (AKA Toad): Y. Summons Toad, which normally does nothing, but releases spores when hit. Counter move.
- Ass Tag! You're It! (AKA Triad Bomber): Foreward+Y or Back+Y. Skirtless Peach does the regular Peach Bomber, only with Skirtless Rosalina above her and Skirtless Daisy below, expanding the hit box.
- Oh Heck No I Hate Vegitables — Fun Trivia in SSBB at Least Did You Know that All of These Had Two-Sided Faces? (AKA Vegetable): Down+Y. Plucks a vegetable from the ground. Unlike her Smash counterpart, she immediately throws it and the attack is treated as a regular projectile. The vegetable always has the infamous "B^U" face from Ctrl+Alt+Del.
- And That is How I Met Your Mother (AKA Triad Lift): Up+Y. Asthetically works similarly to her parasol move, but pulled off in a completely different fashion and has a bit of starting lag. Skirtless Rosalina jumps under Skirtless Peach and uses a launch star-like move to propell them upwards, then Skirtless Daisy hops on Skirtless Peach's shoulders, whips out a glider, and they can glide toward. Pushing down cancels this move. Currently (actually no this character doesn't exist yet), if the gliding part ends or Peach is attacked at any point, Daisy and Rosalina vanish, but a later update is planned to add proper retreating animations.
HypersAll hypers use 1000 power.
- Forget About Me? Z. Skirtless Pauline appears, stands for about three seconds with her arms crossed. If touched, a sequence similar to Sasuke-kun's Kakashi move (only thankfully without the godawful waiting time) will trigger, where she launches an unavoidable barrel spam.
- Yes I Chose Them Over Bubblegum DEAL WITH IT. Foreward+Z or Back+Z. Gets out a whistle and seven characters who look suspiciously like... well, skirtless versions of humanizations of the Sprixies Princesses will all rush in, one after another, doing a variation of the Peach Bomber.
- Item Pluck: Down+Z. A roulette looking similar to the Striker Gauge cards (but with the colors flipped: black border with white edges) pops up cycling through items. This is purely cosmetic and has no effect on the game, and can't be stopped manually. However, it randomly lands on one of these, which Peach then pulls out of the ground:
- Red Carrot: A small red carrot with a long nose-like fixture on it. Peach throws it, and it explodes, doing exceptional damage. Enemy is "burnt" and plays that animation if they have it. Red Pikmin reference.
- Yellow Carrot: A small yellow carrot with a pair of ear-like fixrues on it. Peach throws it, and it goes higher than usual and deals more damage than the average turnip. Enemy is "shocked" and plays that animation if they have it. Yellow Pikmin reference.
- Blue Carrot: A small blue carrot with a pink mouth-looking part on it. Peach throws it, and it can stun the opponent. Deals as much damage as the Yellow Carrot. Enemy is "frozen" and plays that animation if they have it. Blue Pikmin reference.
- Super Mushroom: Grows in size and automatically charges foreward a few steps, then shrinks. Invincible during this state.
- 1-Up Mushroom: Heals 120 life, ten percent of her maximum health.
- Hank Hill Smoking: SLP plucks out that picture, and it instantly vanishes. The stage briefly starts glowing in different colors (ideally, red, then green, then blue. No real reason for the order, just preference) while "rave music" plays. Effect is temporary and does not change the game at all.
- Oh, Screw This: Gets on her parasol and takes off into the sky. Then the screen darkens and a countdown starting from "3" appears. A giant, 8-bit Bowser will rush across the stage once it ends at "1" and needs to be dodged or parried at the right time. Sadly, certain characters, including Kung Fu Man, are garunteed to be hit by this due to a lack of a proper dodge mechanic.
Palettes(Dais. and Ros. are technically Skirtless Daisy and Skirtless Rosalina, but let's keep things simple. These two are also the only characters that will be affected by SLP's palette.) As with Warner's Leela, the general sprites use palette tricks to make cosmetic changes in the outfit itself. Default:
- Normal Pink (Yellow Daisy and Cyan Rosalina)
- Yellow (Cyan Daisy and Pink Rosalina)
- Cyan (Pink Daisy and Yellow Rosalina)
- Red (Green Daisy and Blue Rosalina)
- Green (Blue Daisy and Red Rosalina)
- Blue (Red Daisy and Green Rosalina)
- Thong Pink (Same color scheme as #1, with skimpier outfit. Daisy and Rosalina are affected too palette-wise, and the other "Skirtless" characters have changed sprites to match this. A notice about this variation and how it is, in fact, another set of palettes despite a quick glance leading otherwise will show up when this or 8-12 is selected, as well as a redirect to the readme for further info)
- Thong Yellow (Same color scheme as #2)
- Thong Cyan (Same color scheme as #3)
- Thong Red (Same color scheme as #4)
- Thong Green (Same color scheme as #5)
- Thong Blue (Same color scheme as #6)
- Thong White
- Thong Black
- Thong Orange
- SSB4 (All three of their legs are completely blackened out, all use default color scheme. This has no effect on the other strikers)
- Base (Fugly as hell coloring that only serves to be the base, for things like with how in order to make 7-12 out of 1-6 some things will technically be the same color, yet to initially save them and for a shorthand guide these will be colored differently)
- She only has one intro. A normal-looking Peach, Daisy, and Rosalina are standing by. Peach smirks at the opponent, all three of them rip off their skirts, and Rosalina and Daisy both jump backwards out of the arena.
- Similarly-dressed Palutena, Zelda, and Samus drop into the stage. A fake-credits screen appears saying "Special Guest Star: These Three," with a line underneath reading "Assistant Manager: Great Pikmin Fan." The latter is a reference to a part of Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals.
- SLP is crushed by a giant statue of a nude Hank Hill mooning the viewers.
- "I CAN BEAT YOU WITHOUT PANTS."
- "sweet sweet sweet sweet sweet sweet sweet?"
- "oh did i win?"
- "You say 'sexist,' I say 'funny as hell.'"
- "I'm the Seinfeld of your roster: The character about nothing."
- "lalalalala la!"
Omega Drew Pickles
- Gimmick: Generally weird as hell. Also has a limited amount of time per match he can block or crouch. He has a visible "Duck meter" and "Block meter" towards the bottom-left (or right if he's on the "player 2 side") of the screen, divided into ten segments. Each segment is depleted after about a whole second worth or guarding or crouching, giving him only a fraction of the time in a timed match to play defensively with ease.
He is entirely "voiced" with Speakonia, though some of his other sound effects come from different sources.
Housestuck Full Game
Honestly this is probably gonna stay blank for a while.
Quick Time Events (Advanced Coding)
Cheaper Edd — Bowser PunchCheaper Edd actually does this a bit differently, which is why I'm listing it last instead of first or near-first like Cheaper Edd usually gets. He still has the "30% health or lower" requirement, but 'you are the one that has to do the QTE prompt. In this case, Bowser punches the opponent when the attack is called, and Bowser continues flying offscreen while Cheaper Edd jumps offscreen and the opponent is sent flying a bit, then ends up in their dizzy state. This is where things get complicated. This next part plays out a bit like a Mario & Luigi game, where the opposing player has Mario, Luigi, and if I'm feeling nice each of them have two palette swaps (in lines of three, in other words three chances to belt each enemy line) standing in front. X, Y, and Z make Mario or a given clone jump, and A, B, and C are for the three Luigis. Goombas and Paratroopas will move over, and the Goombas must be jumped on by a given Bro. If all three Bros. in that line jump over them, or they're all down, then the Goomba will go to Cheaper Edd's enemy and do a chunk of damage to them. Paratroopas are harmless to Cheaper Edd's opponent (they will simply fly up after getting close enough), but touching one as a Bro. has the same effect as touching a Goomba. Namely, the Bro. instantly falls off the screen and can no longer be used to defend Cheaper Edd's opponent. To avoid depth problems, enemies going after the "Luigi" path are colored green or have green shells, and those that are on the "Mario" path are colored red. This attack is unique not just out of these QTEs but out of Cheaper Edd's hyper roster in general in that its duration is entirely dependant on how much power he has, though it requires at the minimum 3000 to activate it. Unlike all of his other hypers, said requirement is not deduced upon activating it, but it instead drains as the sequence goes on. Because of this, when it ends Cheaper Edd will always be powerless, so the move is recommended to only be used as a last resort against other cheap characters thanks to C.E.'s huge reliance on mastering his hypers and other power-dependant moves.

I've Had Said Bloodswap Idea Going for a While Now, But it Wasn't Until 2/ 27 that this Title was Thought of. Trope List? Nah, Characters First
The Nepetaswaps as a Whole
BurgundyThe first of the Nepetaswaps introduced and distinguished by wearing a heavy snowsuit with a swarf wrapped around her head.
LimeThe most psychicly-powerful of them all and the last one introduced bar the elusive olive-blooded Nepeta.
OliveBy the beginning of the story's events, this original Nepeta has not actually appeared yet, nor was she even sighted among the meteors. The entire plot is kicked off with the rumor that "Unity of the idols" can bring information on her location, and it's implied that she will be involved in the story by the end, but as of now things are especially complicated with Sgrub's introduction.
FuchsiaThe descendant of the current holder of the Alternian throne, but she is also easily the moodiest and most hostile of the eleven Nepetas. (In contrast to her ancestors, the nicest of the twelve.) She's also the only one who is openly bloodist, hating her own ancestor for abolishing the hemospectrum as it is what meant she is the first fuchsiablood to not be a garunteed heiress in a long time.
Karkat VantasThe main character of the story and the only one so far who does not seem to have a Nepeta replacing his role.
The Twelve Sagettes/Meulin Leijons?A duodecet of trolls heavily implied to be the ancestors of all the Nepetas, including an additional one representing the long-extinct (for reasons unknown, instead of lime) olive caste.
The Signless/Sufferer/Kankri VantasAnything about this incarnaiton of the Sufferer is currently unknown, but it is implied that he was "born" before the Sagettes were and had something to do with the extinction of the olivebloods.
Nah, Trope ListBl:oo<dswap: Guess Whose Getting a Spinoff? (Officially abbreviated to "Bl:oo<dswap GWGAS," pronounced "Gwigas," homophonism to "Giygas" probably unintentional) is a pretty bizarre Homestuck fan fiction that took a simple concept the author emplored on in one of his past works: Bloodswapping is a pretty common Fandom-Specific Plot. You take the trolls and have them live with different blood colors, see how that would impact their personalities, quirks, lifestyles, or even abilities, and of course how that ties into the plot. But this takes it in a different direction: What if Nepeta was given the highest blood in the hemospectrum? And the lowest? And ceruleanblood? And limeblood? As the title's odd insertion of characters may imply, the gimmick is that instead of swapping around characters, most of the trolls are replaced by Nepeta with their respective blood color. Oddly, this includes the canonical Nepeta herself, whose "place" is filled in by one with lime blood, a caste that was extinct canonically but here that part has been replaced by the olive green she used to have. Despite what it sounds like, the story is present in a rather serious matter from start to finish, yet it's still clear enough that it knows the premise is silly and runs with it. Yet it also branches out into its own and rather bizarre tale that involves some sort of reincarnations of creation-spirits, and yet again heavily ties into the author's 360 pseudo-series. It can be found [[ here.]] There are planned to be only thirteen chapters in total.
- Art Evolution: More like design, but the tag-in promotional image does have a noticable step-up in effort compared to the Crconikals comics, and they are in turn a step-up from Sweet Jade and Hella John and Sheldin and Lenard Tock About Fysicks. The swaps have all come a pretty long way from their debut in Sweet Jade and Hella John and are no longer simply Palette Swaps.
- Concept art example: Karkat's eyes are obscured most of the time, and when they are seen, he's usually in the distant background and they appear larger than his usual self.
- The fact that Karkat's blood is never described or he's hit away from anybody else just seems like it's about his canonical mutation. Then he's actually stabbed and the story pretends his blood color is still unknown. Also seems like canon recycling but keep in mind the author hates that, so there has to be a reason why his blood is being kept secret again. It actually being olive-green is a pretty good reason.
- Once again related to The Reveal with Karkat: He's introduced with "Once you find out about this world, it might look like it makes less sense to introduce this character first, but even further down the road it makes perfect sense."
- Mind Screw: The reveal that this is a Sburb session should not be so strange since meteors were mentioned back in the prologue. What is is that the session so far has played out in a very bizarre manner. And this is also ignoring the bare-bones premise of there being eleven, possibly tweleve, Nepetas at once.
- No Antagonist: So far, the fuchsian-blooded Nepeta is the closest this has to a villain. And even then, she's more of a jerk than she is an actual threat.
- Wham Episode:
- Chapter 6. Turns out that the Olive Blooded-Nepeta was Hidden in Plain Sight — she was Kakrat the entire time, faking her own death and coming up with an "overly elaborate alter ego" to hide out, to avoid cultists from trying to capture all twelve of them and unite them. Not only that, but Lord English himself appears to exist too, sealed under Olive's cave-hive by twelve color-coded chains that break whenever one of the Leijons enters the session.
- Chapter 9. Teal gets a bit carried away in a fighting match and kills John. Both LOWAS and his own Prospit are gone as well, making revival extremely unlikely.
- Wham Line:
- In leu of a similar twist in Gravity Falls, the headline of an Alternian newpaper: "GREEN DESCENDANT LEIJON DEAD. (Prophecy might be doomed.)"
- CG: :33 < karkat vantas does not exist. The change in typing style alone would qualify, but the message hammers it in.
- Anti-Climax Boss:
- After a ton of buildup (the majority of the fan fic, and it is one of the longest fanworks in the Homestuck fandom by the time it's finally finished), the final battle with Doc Scratch just amounts to shooting him with a light arrow after a weak attack from his part, and the Crew beat him down. There is a showdown with Lord English shortly after... only he gets beaten worse, not even being able to get an attack in before the same process is repeated.
- The Troll Empress gets some buildup as a major threat through seasons four and six. After taking down her "Trollcopter" in chapter 20, she's quickly bisected and never actually takes on a single member of the Crew in hand-to-hand combat save for one quick battle with Condesce in chapter 18. She doesn't even survive half of the storyline where she's supposed to be a major antagonist.
- Ho Yay: Alucard and Kamina. Well, probably on Kamina's end (the irony being that Kamina is often on the recieving end of Ho Yay)
- Berserk Button:
- 360 Series:
- 360 Degree Duck: Never harm children around Duck. Even a powerful ice person learnt this the hard way.
- That same ice person in that same chapter of that story also learnt that mortally endangering a member of the 360 (in this case, her own older sister, Red), is a good way to get the entire team to come down on your ass and completely avert Conservation of Ninjutsu. Icesky got her ass whooped by a "minor" member who hasn't even been introduced before this. Keep in mind that "less average screentime" does not always equate to "weaker, Can't Catch Up and victims of The Worf Effect."
- Blue in general has a surprising number of these, in contrast to the rest of the major team members being consistently more level. In general, most of what Icesky says. Though she has more trivial ones like getting the names of of teammates wrong/mixing them up.
- Twisting around a usual use of the trope, both Cyan and to a lesser extent Yellow hate being assumed that harm to them is automatically a Berserk Button to Magenta and Blue respectively. Cyan doesn't like being seen as a passive member to be protected by someone else, and Yellow didn't at first but did after she stopped letting Blue control her around in chapter 2 of 360 Degree Duck.
- Witchita is such a Card-Carrying Villain that she hates it when her villainy is underestimated. The top of the list, though, is believing that she isn't "scary."
- Not to levels of "berserk," but even mentioning Icesky sours Red's mood considerably. Outright claiming Icesky's better than her, however, is pretty much the only real thing that gets her mad.
- A Slash of Mortality:
- Eve has a few things and habits she doesn't like, but the one thing that actually pisses her off is insulting Adam. When Joe begins ranting on about how much of a failure Adam "turned out to be" for not living up to the "character" of sorts he had in mind, she tossed a sword at him (despite being, you know, the god of ASOM's dimension) and sternly told him "YOU DON'T TALK THAT WAY TO MY BROTHER. EVER!" It's clear that she's not just being her usual hammy self but instead infuriated, since she's usually not this direct. Or uses contractions, for that matter.
- Mary probably hates tyrant-like leaders more than any other major character, partly because as a kid (all sentient life at that point was only a few kids in a mountain society, so her being a kid leader wasn't as inexplicable as it sounds) she used to be on the path of becomming a pretty mean ruler herself.
- Joe himself has a huge list, frankly. Derailing his planned "story" of sorts, for one (which is what about 99.99% of ASOM is on a technical level), the Spring People believing they shouldn't have to listen to him, the Guardians getting his commands wrong, and worst of all trying to bring up his home dimension to him, especially attempting to analyze why he is how he is if you manage to get his mother's affair on his father correct.
- The Five Researchers don't have much in common, but one thing they do have is that they hold very high sentimental value to any kind of currency. Knowlingly and intentionally destroying any form of money (including Teleport Matter, though converting it to material doesn't count unless, again, it's just done for the sake of destroying it) within their sight will have all five on you at a finger snap.
- Fan's own Author Avatar is normally a huge pussy who eventually ends up getting killed in all of his fan fic appearances so far, almost always by minor or secondary villains and not even having the bragging rights of dieing to the Big Bad. He also normally can't fight at all. Normally. If you attempt to invoke a Reset Button, especially if it's specifically supposed to re-rail events to be more like canon, he will punch you with enough force that you'll fly through and destroy at least four Baby Planets and essentially wipe out an entire mini-solar system. And if you're a God Tier, he'd spitefully force the clock to read Just even if it was already going to be Heroic (basically both of them still means the dead person isn't going to be reincarnated). If Dead Aradia hadn't tried to prevent Karkat's death in Homestuck Rewrite, she'd still be called Doomed Timeline God Tier Aradia. This is actually based on the Real Life-GPF, who has reset buttons and magically undoing anything as a large Pet Peeve Trope of his own. So trying to push a Reset Button will only result in pushing another button insteadnote .
- From the same character in a downplayed example, claiming any of his stories to be doomed timelines (Homestuck ones) or how they correlate to canon (basically anything, Homestuck included) will get at least five paragraphs from him explaining why they aren't.
- 360 Series:
- Crosses the Line Twice?
- Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals is built around this. The Rainbow Crew uniforms would not be as entertaining if most of them were standard Sexy Whatever Outfits, but instead very absurd designs like Highblood simply having a balloon carefully float in place or Mindfang first making herself into a pile of her journal pages before that's deemed "not revealing/teasing enough" and switching to an outfit made entirely out of spider webs. There's also Hank Hill, who is a near-nude fairy that wears nothing but leaves and is treated seriously in-unvierse, which gets even worse when he dramatically removes his leaves with a nine year old right by him (because the leaves were "limiting his power for his own good" and this was a sort of Eleventh Hour Superpower, but still, it barely makes sense in context). And this isn't even getting into how the plot intentionally crosses the stupidity line twice thanks to having one of the dumbest villains in fan fiction history, and he's based on a character who is canonically omniscient.
- Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals has a bit too. Alucard's backstory, for one, is a Hilariously Abusive Childhood where his Bro punched him so hard that he flew across an entire ocean and somehow got "stranded" in England.
- Both of the Steven Universe SBIGlets so far are built on this:
- The Crystal Gems Kicking Ass You Guys!!!!!!!!!!!! is, frankly, a borderline Take That at suggestions towards the show leaning more towards a heavy action-series that would ideally involve the Gems taking on more traditional Big Bads. It tries to avoid being offensive about this by ramping up that concept as much as possible via Testosterone Poisoning, so the result is having Duke Nukem side with the Gems, military vehicles and explosions everywhere, Amethyst inexplicably being harsh towards Steven and telling him "Get your feels fest outta here this is slightly more serious," and a villain literally named "Dogick the Evil Gem," who is evil for the sake of being evil and, Aizen-levels of unbeatable, and yes, makes her debut by kicking a dog. So hard that the dog flies into a mountain. And they both explode.
- Steven the Secrets Guy. One eponymous "secret" is that Connie's parents are really Nudist Beach-esque resistors who reveal this while undressing in front of the whole city in the middle of a dead-serious conversation. Then Connie herself joins, and this is revealed via her crashing into the car wash naked on a motorcycle and ordering Greg to "Get on and possibly strip down yourself." He reluctantly does the former, and they are chased by a freeway's worth of cops who misunderstand the situation, but this comes to an end when a red light causes the cops to spiral out of control and have a pileup so large it puts Blues Brothers 2000 to shame and has about three paragraphs describing the events. (Surprisingly, without any casualties. Though one of them crashes into a lawyer's house and he (the lawyer) shouts "Oh, JACKPOT!") This isn't even covering the Big Bad, a sentient sock whose plan is to blow up pet stores around the world. In other words, the plan is an exaggeration of the literal term Kick the Dog.
Also, it turns out the cops weren't even after Greg because they saw him riding with a nude girl out of context. They were after Connie for "driving without a liscent [sic]," because they automatically assumed naked people can't have licenses with them.
- SBIG's general habit of killing off major characters. Major spoilers. In Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals, Alucard is offed because a minor villain did not want to face the familiar of his brother, so he set a robotic arm to nuke Alucard. Alucard himself attempts to escape, but finds out that the tank he's been driving around the story with has stalled on him, and while he's dying his Big "NO!" is "mispelt" as "MOOOOO!"
- naruto the guy with the ninja gets away with parodying the "overpowered Naruto Team 7 bashing" trend despite actually overpowering him by A: making him the Big Bad (more important of the two) and B: by exaggerating his "new powers" so much that he effortlessly takes over the world. His insults also go from mean-spirited to impossible to get offended by when he eventually resorts to throwing weak attacks at people in almost every sentence putting a stereotypical Xbox player to shame, and even calls Sasuke "You bitch-bitching bitcher asshole meanie" more than once despite Naruto clearly being the worse of the two at this point. (And, despite his base-breaking canonical self, Sasuke hasn't ever actually done anything wrong here despite starting off as a Card-Carrying Villain who "wanted" to be evil before Naruto's world-domination made him change his mind.)
- Rage Against the Author:
- The only times this happened outside of SBIG were in a joke and non-canon ending of Total Drama World Tour Rewrite (where Duncan gets on a bus and leaves to "a fan fic by a different author who would respect him more."), and as a mild plot-point in Hair Idealization where Catman claims that he can help Leonard leave the THI world somehow and reset everything back to normalcy. They come across some machine that can apparantly alter reality, but Uncle Grandfather stops both of them from activating it.
- In two different SBIGlets, a character was implied to try to leave the story alltogether. The first instance might have succeeded (he is not mentioned again), but either the second failed or the pseudo-author forgot the fourth wall gag was a fourth wall gag and made it into a plotline. Or it was just made into an important plot point from the beginning. (Seeing as he no longer seems to oppose the plot at all.)
- During Steven the Secrets Guy, Dewey at one point gets so annoyed by the frequent monster attacks that he says "That's it, this story has gone too far. I quit." And isn't heard from again.note
- In Clothing, when Satsuki announces a "Surprise round in the King of the Hill Final Battle Tournament" (which is Nui), most of the Elite Four do the "Yep" that a certain similarly-named show has as a famous Once an Episode part. All except Uzu, who only says "You guys suck," walks off"screen," and then the story says that a car sound plays and he says "I'll be back for the next story but you don't have to pay me." He later appears being rescued from a COVER and basically functions as a Deus ex Machina as he also apparantly found a device that lets Ryuko do Unite Morphs, which saves humanity from the Spider Queen. If context helps, both Satsuki and Ragyo appear to hold an unexplained distain towards King of the Hill references.
- Running Gag (SBIG):
- Whenever there's a "credits free frame," the phrase "Assistant Manager: Great Pikmin Fan" will pop up, even though Assistant Manager is not really a title when it comes to credits. It serves as yet another King of the Hill reference.
- There's fewer and fewer installments where Hank's appearance was not accompanied by him doing something and then trying to explain that it's "American," refusing to elaborate further.
- Canada is usually portrayed as being completely backwards in terms of almost everything when compared to the United States. Cars stop on green and go on red,
A More Minor Story (Might move this to another Sandbox next edit)
The Four Players(I'm using quotes from the old/current version. Well except Gerald's.)
- "Okay, what is this? Sheldon, is this an elaborate prank?"
- Butt Monkey: The two challenges that involve actual, physical skill (the archery and the desert fight) utterly floor him. He's better in the Halo and physics quizzes (though he still loses the latter thanks to a trick question about the color of the sky) and does decently on the rap battle, even if Penny unknowingly damages them a point by spending more of it dissing him and overall giving them a negative score, however the rap is judged.
- Only Sane Man: He and Catman are the only consistently sane characters in the story, and the only one who questions all of the weird crap he's put through.
- "Well, you know, this game sounded pretty badass for a guy like you and... I just had to join in! Pretty romantic, too!"
- Action Girl: She manages to single-handedly outscore both Gerald and Brenda in the horseback archery competition, and holds her own against both of them in the desert fight and the launch against Coiffio/Kripkie.
- Clothing Damage: Loses her shirt in the final game (and following battle), leaving her out in only a bra. Which parallel's Brenda's pretty much pantlessness.
- Instant Expert: At archery, it seems. And sword fighting. And, as in canon, Halo.
- Unusually Uninteresting Sight: She is probably the BBT character who embodies this the most, having barely the faintest reaction at any of the odder stuff that happens. She treats the entire game like it's a fact of life despite how weird it is that two entire universities are betting themselves on the fate of two people, and only one of them actually works at either of them.
- Determinator: This would somehow help him get hair.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Apparantly the last two canonical episodes of his own show did not happen (evident by his verse in the rap battle). He's not willing to kill anyone over an interest in his crush, and he's slightly more rational in general.
- "E-e-earth's mass would scrape exactly half of Mars's if... hai."
- Hidden Depths: She seems to have a big knowledge about physics, being able to tie up with Leonard during the physics trivia event.
- The Bus Came Back: He vanishes when the first four games start. Then he re-appears in the interlude. Then vanishes for the final showdown, but appears in the epilogue.
- Jerkass: He essentially forced Leonard into the game, using him as a sheild to back up his own claim while not having to do something himself.
The Shrek Statue
- "AIGH'T. NOW FOR THE BLOOD SAMPLE."
Alucard and Kamina
- Shoo Out the Clowns: They leave around the time of the final battle. Subverted in that the fic never completely takes itself seriously.
- Those Two Guys: In spite of the former being a powerful vampire and the latter being a badass freedom-fighter, neither of them have their skills come up and they are ultimately spectators in the match.
Nepeta and Elitaa
- "Ha ha, no no no no no. There are a lot of things about the world you do not need to know. And a lot you barely need to know. Like these! [Fast] Realities run parallel worship the second coming of the Homer I called security on you buy gold, bye!"Nepeta, believe it or not"[Hisses] This is my game, you hear me? MY game!"Elitaa
- From Nobody To Nightmate: Word of God is that Hair Idealization "might just actually" take place in the same world as Sleptover, meaning that Elitaa will successfully murder several other characters.
- Irony: Oh, quite a number. Nepeta being creatly opposed by Catman of all people is just a start.
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Elitaa isn't actually a refugee from SJAHJ trying to get into another story alltogether, no. She's just some abandoned nut attempted to end up famous (again?).
- Self-Deprecation: Fan utterly hates having came up with Elitaa for reasons unknown, so she's portrayed as some partly-feral Ezekiel knockoff who is trying to work her way into other big moments.
- Villain Teleportation: Elitaa has the ability to teleport.
- "I have one gear: GO!"
- "YO YO YO! Wassup!"
- One of the first rooms contains an "ambush" by a few tough villains. Who will later fight you one-by-one at different points in the dungeon. Unfortunately, they initially don't look threatening: A seemingly ordinary snowman (not even an anthromorphised one), a tiny looking guy with a stick for a weapon, and a Palette Swap of the Large Ham Warmup Boss. Not very intimidating.
"oh snap that happened in homestuck too well ya' shoulda caught up"Just an idea, nothing that'll really be acted upon anytime soon:

Transformation SequenceThroughout SBIG, Kamui have had a seemingly unconnected series of activations, though all of them have ended with some variation of the Wonderful 101's Unlimited Form, where the transformer would usually hold out a thumb's down, then change it to a thumb's up. The Spartans all go by this, as does Ryuko, while Lucky, Satsuki, and the Spider Queen invert it by starting with a thumb's up then changing it to a thumb's down.
List of Known Kamui in SBIG
SenketsuAs with his canon self, Senketsu is worn and used primarly by Ryuko. He makes his debut in Clothing and helps her make it to Evil Island, but eventually the fake-author forgets from time to time that he is sentient and gets treated as a powerup. Ryuko's DNA being imbuted in him prevents him from being eaten by the Spider Queen (well, not really, she just hates the taste: she remarks that he "Tastes like badly written angst Hedgehog," a reference to Ryuko's resemblance to Shadow the Hedgehog.) and enters Emergency State, which allows him to assist in using Unite Morphs. For some reason, killing the Spider Queen turns him into a "real boy," (which despite his voice actually appears to be young)
Spider Queen ExoskeletonAs with the Spider Queen being a bizarre replacement of/"one step further" to Ragyo, her exoskeleton acts as her own Kamui of sorts. In her case, it is apparantly psychicly linked to all other Life Fibers of the world, including Senketsu and Life Fiber-hybrids, granting its wearer all of the abilities utilized by all particular Life Fibers. In the Spider Queen's case, this gives her all demonstrated powers, including those of Satsuki, the Elite Four, and Nui.
Spartan Under-uniforms/Secondary Armor LeoThis is stated to be utilized by all members of the Spartan Time Traveling Force, but only the 360, Kamina, and Simon are depicted using it (Cortana is outright stated to not have one and Yoko is yet to be seen using one). Underneath the standard Master Chief-like suits is a specialized "last-resort" suit that all members are required to wear at all times while on-duty, to enter an emergency form in the event of facing a powerful enemy and/or the destruction of their squad. Despite not formally being introduced into the 360 2-parter, it was mentioned back in chapter 20 of Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals when Rip gives the illusion of the 360 to Jake and tries to convince him that he simply dreamed the prior events of the story, and that was reality. Pre-transformation, the Kamui itself only appears as a small and highly revealing black thong apparantly connected to a pair of star-shaped stickers. After transformation, these gain a slight tint of the wearer's associated color (EG crimson red for Kamina), and a cape in their color spawns during the transformation sequence. By the end, all transforming members stick a downwards thumb out, then flip it to a thumb's up, causing the cape to appear to explode yet actually expand and have its end go into flames. Said flames are, again, matching in color to what the user is associated with. Whether the color adapts to the given person somehow or it's custom-made to tint in that coloration is not known, though given Lucky's corruption of the weapon it might be the latter. The transformation is only activated twice in the two-parter, and near the final confrontation of each part. First when fighting against Elvin, Mudobber, and Siri in the Pyramid-replica after the Gunmen were destroyed, and second after finally chasing Lucky down to Planet Lawyer Guy (after Lucky himself engages his transformation). They retain this shortly after Zattrag's reveal, but as his mech fuses with the planet to create an exceptionally large enemy, they forgo the form and try Cortana Gold as means to defend their squad and the planet Earth.
Kamui KleindschmidtLucky's custom-made Kamui and a modification of the Secondary Armor Leo he used to have. While not officially touched up along the lines of the other Spartan uniforms, Lucky himself added customizations to the point where it is stronger than the Armor Leos. Additionally, it's custom made to only be able to take in Lucky's blood as an activation to prevent anyone else from stealing it. (Though the fact that it touches Lucky's skin is probably enough to convince people not to wear it anyway.) Unlike the Spartan Under-uniforms, the cape part of Lucky's outfit is always visible, but lacks the length and flame-style at the end. These return whenever he activates it. The thong, stars, and cape are all colored indigo even when not activated, while the former two parts are black for the proper squad. Like the other Spartan-related Kamuis, Kleindschmidt does not demonstrate any sort of sentience but is presumably alive and self-aware given Lucky's worry about being "taken-over." Lucky only transforms with this once in the story itself, but he says "Life Fiber Override!" before initiating it. As with "Unite-Synchronize!" with the Armor Leo, the significance of this is unknown.
Sam KetchupBrenda's Kamui and clearly named after the joke-video Bully La Bully. As with the joke edit (a parody of 4kid's habit of toning down a given anime's content), the activated form resembles a giant hot-dog suit. Initially. Despite technically being her main outfit most of the time, it is not revealed as a kamui outside of naruto the guy with the ninja. It is unknown if she has similar abilities in Fox Crew or Hair Idealization, but given the eventual pressing circumstances yet her refusal to activate it if present, it is likely she doesn't. While dormant, it resembles her canonical sailor uniform with a skirt that ends at the waist and fails to cover her lower half, and it is unknown if the thong is part of the Kamui or not (given the Spartan uniforms, it probably is). When activated, the hot dog suit resembles Action Hotdog. Little is known about Sam Ketchup other than that it can apparantly be worn by anyone, requires little blood to activate, and that it has the power to take down one of Naruto's inner barriers. This was so far only activated once. Given how Damara's Rainbow Crew outfit in Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals is a clear reference to Brenda's, it is unknown if that is a kamui as well. But it is confirmed that they exist in the Crconikals world in some way, and Nepeta even opposes them outright (to the extent that she is an unofficial member of Nudist Beach).
- Relax-o-Vision: A strange textual example. After basically losing a bet... to himself, he finally wrote an explicit fanwork for Archive of our Own but made a "cleaner" mirror for fanfiction.netnote . In the latter, all X-rated scenes are replaced with the guys from King of the Hill talking about random subjects, on occassion somehow related to the censored act in question. Anything that isn't a full-blown scene yet discusses mature matters is replaced with the characters talking about propane, grilling, lawn care, or something else Hank or one of his friends are interested in. Subverted near the end, where the original does have a straight-up conversation about propane, and the edit needlessly changes it to something more explicit. Apparantly the KOTH sequences also doubled as a test to see if the author could "make a sort of story that only has the guys in the alley," a sort of Bottle Episode. On Archive of Our Own, the King of the Hill discussions themselves were eventually posted as a seperate story.
