     1001 Hank Hill Quotes 

  • "Heh heh, I look like a jackass."

"YOU'RE FIRED."

End.

    Idea Jotting About my own Stuff, Nothing Here's Garunteed at All Unless it Already Exists 

  • And So We Fight

  • Complexity Addiction:
    • The ninjas that have been harassing Mituna back in chapter 5 and re-appear later in the story have set up an overly-elaborate building to keep the things they've stolen from inside, and require any given hero to set up a complex heist method just so they can ambush them at the end. However, this backfires when Crowbar's plan to break in just amounts to Cans breaking down the wall.

  • Jossed. In Ed, Edd n' Eddy: the Mis-Edventures: Deluxe Edition's "The Walking Ed," according to Jerry Whinefeld, Eddy represents all seven sins. Or, at the least, he was victim to all seven of the "minigames"/"cutscenes" about the sins.
  • Not really. According to Word of God, there are not going to be any "This is our world's version of [real world holiday/event]"-style chapters, not in Spring Shorts and espeically not in the sequel to ASOM if it happens. This applies double for Christas-themed chapters.
  • Originally, the 360 was said to each be born a day apart around 1776, starting from December 15th (Flare's birthday) to December 9th of the following year (Red's). Leap Day, 12/12, and the two days both before and after the latter are the only days of the year to not have one of their birthdays on it. Originally, the majority of the births were to be on 1776 itself. But 1776 was a leap year.

  • Punny Name: Instead of "Rebel Robot Ranch," the second bonus level is "The Walking Ed." It's a very similar stage (meaning, it is a robot-themed level, and also there are no zombies and it has nothing to do with The Walking Dead), except at the end Jerry's self from "Whinefeld" of Stay Tooned! gives the Eds a lecture on the seven deadly sins.

Lee Kanker

  • Evil Counterpart: Interestingly, to Nepeta. Both of them have a habit of hijacking plotlines (Fan even explicitely says that with the Kankers he's a lot more confortable of having them be the final antagonists of more than one fan fic than nearly any other character), and as of Gumball vs Satan Lee and Nepeta both have a habit of making several clones of themselves/their relatives with slight differences (different appearances alltogether for Lee, bloodswaps of the microscopic Nepetites for Nepeta)


Lololololol:
  • Tier-Induced Scrappy:
    • Of this guy's creations, Nepeta. She's a Lightning Bruiser with above-average health and defense and can very easily combo the hell out of most opponents. It doesn't help that her fighting style makes John (who has a similar close-range base) almost obsolete. Her only two weaknesses, horrible air game and the lack of a projectile/major long-range attacknote , are very irrelevant since A: MUGEN is largely a ground-based game and B: she can just rush up to an enemy. Speaking of rushing up, she's faster than Rare Akuma (a character intentionally made to be broken), and of all GPF characters her speed stats are second only to Cheaper Edd (Fan's own attempt at an intentionally broken character). She also has Scrappy in other aspects, such as being the third Homestuck character he made, and getting priority over anyone who isn't John or Karkat (the previous two HS characters, not counting the bizarro joke Cheesecakestuck). Especially Vriska. The fact that her "trailer" opened with a knocked-out Vriska and then having her (Vriska, not Nepeta) note something along the lines of "Well, if you want her in the game, make her yourself" helps even less.
    • Cheaper Edd is this by intention, a very difficult character with high stats that takes a lot of effort, time, and generally fighting flawlessly to defeat.
    • The other side of the spectrum has Red Pikmin, who is hit very hard with Early Installment Weirdness and uses the default AI setting, plus it has no outstanding features. It's a Mechanically Unusual Fighter in that it relies on its assist specials, but this only makes it a huge pain in the ass to use and with very little reward. (Averting Difficult but Awesome.) The guy also refuses to give it any major buffs. This is also not an intentional Joke Character, despite canonical Pikmin being One-Hit-Point Wonders without any outstanding skills.
  • Take That, Scrappy!:
    • This guy's Nepeta of all people (despite her canon self's Ensemble Darkhorse status) entered the Scrappy heap pretty hard thanks to being ridiculously overpowered by comparason to some other creations and generally making play pretty difficult. Same creator later made a character called "Skirtless Peach." How does the latter's "trailer" open? By her giving an Ass Kicks You to Nepeta. This doubles as having some Laser-Guided Karma elements if you're familiar with the maker's prior fan fiction, as Nepeta has a habit of using her butt as a very deadly weapon and was, to put it in very simple terms, intentioanlly supposed to swap roles with Vriska when it comes to plot-commanding and screentime hogging.

I'm not too sure:
  • Lethal Joke Character:
    • Ωmega Drew Pickles. He's a poorly-drawn cartoony (well, cartoonier) attempt at making Drew Pickles, and he even has a finite guard and crouch before he can no longer do that respective action for the rest of the round. Yet, he's Difficult but Awesome. With everything properly managed, he can and will soundly pummel almost every character in his way. Hell, with the right AI, he can even go toe-to-toe with another Omega/Ωmega in the form of Omega Tiger Woods.
    • "Alucard Badguy." It's Alucard in a tank. Yet he's also a boss-type character who may have a very low number of moves, but they're all pretty tricky to dodge.
    • Cheaper Edd. The name's not a joke: This guy has immortal strikers, an invincible wagon hyper, scary stats, and overall had to be nerfed several times and still ends up being able to oust Most_Mysterious-tier characters. Mainly thanks to his wagon hyper.
    • Actually any Fanservice-ish character by this guy may qualify (many of them are parodies though):
      • Brenda from Perfect Hair Forever, a blatant parody of anime fanservice. Her design here is no less absurd than in canonnote , with a skirt that fails to cover anything. But she's a tough clone/emulation of Marth's moveset from Super Smash Bros with additional "traditional" fighting game moves, and has some pretty good speed at that. Her hypers are also devastating, such as the full-screen Cat-Bun War move.
      • "Cheesecakestuck" is a clusterfuck of Homestuck characters redesigned as poor, intentionally crappy/MS Paint-stickfigure looking adult women who fight entirely in their underwear, and the given character rapidly changes all the time. Yet this... thing is also loaded with screen filling moves, and while it's the weakest character of this guy's roster attack-wise and has a finite guardnote , it compensates with AI that gets increasingly insane as Fan learns more about how coding it works.
      • Skirtless Peach. It's Princess Peach without the lower half of her skirt. Then you look at her stats...
      • Pimp Cody could be considered something of an Evil Counterpart to Cheesecakestuck. His gimmick is that he summons nude (but always strategically covered) MS Paint drawings of famous female characters, like Wonder Woman, Lois Griffin, or... Ms. Pac-man. Unlike Cheesecakestuck, whose eponymous cheesecake-characters count as the fighters doing the attacks, Cody's are more-or-less projectiles that he constantly spams and floods the screen with to keep him well-guarded. And unlike most other characters made by this maker that fall under this, he has no real downside or Crippling Overspecialization.
      • Fanservice Felicia was made specifically to see if he could make a character that, on average, could beat Cheaper Edd. Cheaper Edd is listed above on here. You thought he was bad with Wagon spam? She makes wagons rain on you. And they work the exact same way as his regular Wagon move/projectile. At least according to the backstory, she's supposed to be the Good Counterpart to Cheaper Edd.
  • Fighting Clown:

  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits:
    • Sasuke's band of a loudmouth idiot (himself), a grumpy octopus who can breathe out of water and was tormented by his sponge and seastar neighbors, a teen who became a smoking-addict emo after his three closest friends were brainwashed by the Big Bad, a supersoldier probably from the future, and a wisard who started off being racist against muggles.
    • Hank's "rival gang" is probably worse. A man who holds up to tradition even after the apocalypse,

(This one is unlikely because enough people rip off Kamina and Simon already. Or, they're going to.)
  • Crack Fic: How about anything with this quote?
    Isaac: Ted Mosby is dead. He's not here anymore. BUT! He's on my back. And in my heart. TOGETHER WE WILL LIVE ON AS ONE! You can't cling to the past. No matter how tightly you hold on, it's already gone. If there is one rule to being an architect, it's that you can't make a building look like a penis! Who am I? I am myself. Not my later caretaker Ted. I AM ME! ISAAC, UNBOUNDED! HAAAAAAAVE YOU MET ME?

    Finishing move. GIGA! STORY! BREAAAAAAAAK!
  • What Could Have Been:
    • The first half of Isaac Unbounded was supposed to mirror more of the original Gurren Lagann series more with how the Isaacites fight off the Sins, but thought that "rehashing" for too long would become strainful, so he did what the movie did and had all of the Sins save for Wrath (who was dead by then) and Pride (the Big Bad) ambush them at once, shortly after dealing with the Sloth fight. (Unlike the other Sins, Sloth does not correspond to a General, Viral, or Lordgenome, but has a completely original role in the story.)

  • I Resemble That Remark: One of the first things Joe says is that D. Meulin is obsessant over classes and aspects. Both of her verses have her constantly working in the names of the twelve classes and aspects she has control over.

  • Famous Last Words, HHC:
    • "Misa gonna go into the movies now! Bye bye!" Damara's HRG Tattoo.
    • "What the—" Gamzee in chapter 12. He's revived by a magic ghost in the same chapter.

    • "Fatal error detected. Loading final words: Watch your fucking language." Censorbot.
    • "Well, I might not strickly be YOUR bully, but you stood up to A bully. I have to say. I'm kinda proud. Good job, you have a good life ahead of you." Rick Abs.
    • "Urgh. 'M a bit seasick now mates." Jaws the Shark.
    • "ARGH FUCK! Pardon my French. OR SHOULD I SAY ENGLISH BECAUSE..." Doc Scratch.
    • "WHO WANTS TO GET SHOT?" Caliborn/Lord English.

  • Famous Last Words, 496note :
    • "SELF-DESTRUCT WILL COMMENSE IN EXACTLY FOUR HUNDRED AND NINETY SIX SECONDS." Tumorsprite.
    • "Meenah, what the hell?" Duplicate Porrim.
    • "What? Do YOU wanna starve to death in here? Those are our only two options." Duplicate Meenah.
    • "Halt! And just who goes there?" Grandpasprite.
    • "Does this mean I'm next?" Momsprite.
    • "And remember this: Everything will be fine in the end." Cueballsprite.

    • "That way." Ruanozsprite, before self-desctructing.
    • "So this is how it is to know your existance is near an end. The rest of life... meaningless and short." Dirk's Auto Responder.
    • "You think that just because I'm not a dream self that means I'm not a part of you? Listen, Dave. I still exist inside you. And will live on in you. Always. Just you wait." "Diablo," Dave's clone result from a really weird spore-creature.
    • "...Didn't see that coming." Duplicate Meulin.

  • Famous Last Words, 360DD:
    • "No, I made my choice. When I die, I'll go on and through the portal. You focus on getting up here with me in mind, and I'll focus on exploring the unknown with you in mind. We may be lightyears apart, and I may be a ghost, but we can still be close lights. Colors." Dirk Blaque. "Colors" is the first word he said to the people he's talking to when the first met, back when they were all very little.
    • "If that wasn't worth a promotion, I don't know what is. Ha ha ha, nice!" Malcolm.

  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • The Glitch Bonus Boss. Mostly because it's done in such a way that you'd think the game itself was screwed over even shortly after beating the boss: Malcolm re-appears to give the tutorial on dodging and countering attacks again even though he's likely dead at this pointnote , there is no music, the cutscenes before and after treat it as though you're fighting The Goomba of the game, characters re-use dialogue from earlier or later points in the game that are not fitting with what's being fought at all, and the enemy itself appears as nothing until it attacks (or if you're using an attack with an action command that requires pushing something relative to where the enemy's at, where it turns into a solid line to let you know when you should press the button), during which garbles of glitch blocks either rain down or get fired over with very little warning other than the required tell. The only upside is that this boss is confirmed to be non-canon by Word of God, and that in-story that mysterious door only contained a trivial enemy as the cutscenes said.
      • The enemy preparing to attack just to have a text block come up saying "WAIT!" might even qualify as a Jump Scare, since you're at the point where battle tutorials are things of the distant past and unlike the "actual" tutorials there is no indication that someone is even there to instruct you until Malcolm comes out of nowhere to tell you to jump over an attack that's raining down on you.

  • Wham Episode:
    • "Icesky." The eponymous character is Red's youngest sister that she briefly mentioned back in the first chapter. After four chapters of what seemed like an episodic romp until then, Icesky nearly kills Red, establishes herself as a major threat if not the whole Big Bad of the story, and appears to know some hidden secrets of the universe, and we finally find out a little more on Duck's life.
    • "Green Witch, Orange Witch," the second part of "Icesky" and the end of the first arc. Icesky herself briefly returns, the Pearl Comet plan goes into action, we're finally introduced to Witchita's close friends/allies Summer and Sandstone, Malcolm dies, we find out about the 360's past human friend Dirk, Fusion makes her first appearance, and Icesky takes off presumably in the direction of the Interstellar Graveyard. And just before the end, we're introduced to the Cattites and Seecon.
    • Fast-foreward to "Dodging Rain." Icesky is back.

  • Single-Target Sexuality:
    • Jade in Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals only had any romantic feels at all towards John. And later Jean, who is basically part of John's personality given life or something like that. To such an extent that before they met, she thought she completely lacked attraction period.
    • Both of his yandere original villains, if less obvious. Rick, the more blatant of the two, is Jadesexual. He only really took offense when she turned him down, and doesn't seem to care for the small crowd of girls that was after him in flashbacks. Additionally, the group's trip into his mind in chapter 7 revealed that the deepest part of his subconcious was littered with Jade statues and pictures everywhere. Including male Jades. Hell, when making Opposite-Sex Clones of the leads he even stares over at Jade's clone (while still in stasis in a tube) and remarks that he "looks just as good as the original" while leaning against the tube. Bororo, on the other hand, only appears to care about Gamzee or his relatives (whether or not Rick likes any of Jade's family other than her isn't clear because in two of his appearances, Jade does not appear to be related to any of the other characters. She is Dean/Pa's daughter in Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals, but Dean and Rick do not have any real interactions), and targets after him exclusively.
  • Stealth Pun: Joe's "Master Worm" form is more like the worm on a fishing hook. It's a lame "Master Bait" joke.

  • Replacement Scrappy:
    • In general, and more towards a series concept, this was the general reaction to Fan saying that, in short, he's probably no longer going to make more Homestuck AUs but instead take any further Loads and Loads of Characters concepts with 360 Degree Duck AUs instead. This is mostly because the announcement came right after a beard-growing moment where he finally got two of the former down that had something of a following. In particular, Red or any given incarnation is harshly compared to all "leader"-type figures, saying that she has a very generic and overdone personality compared to Homestuck's canon-debated leader-type characters like John, Karkat, Meenah, or even Jane.
    • Carl to Alucard or Pip (mostly Alucard) in the Hellsing portion of the Crconikals world, though this was probably intentional.
    • Nzyvo to Gideon in Journals of Wisdom, Power, and Courage, who lacks anything that really makes the latter, canonical villain interesting and comes off as a Villain Sue. The whole story might be poorly-written on purpose, but that already doesn't really excuse that she's also bland and just unfun to read. There's also the fact that she brings in even more Gurren Lagann-esque content to this guy's general overall works and worlds.
    • Rosalina for Yoko in Fox Crew. The latter was a badass, enjoyable, relatable Hero of Another Story who is often recognized as a fanservice character and thus fitting to lead the group. She accomplishes a lot and shows her competance and seriousness for the story. The former, for some reason, comes off as a character from a poor attempt at a comedic fancomic. People did not like her exaggerated face reactions to everything, the inexplicable promotion to her as the leader after Yoko's death, her mostly-lack of any fanservice (from the perverts — others see this as something of a relief), and how a lot of her decisions are Idiot Ball-held at best and outright What the Hell, Hero? at worst (like knowingly sending Lumpy Space Princess to her death just for annoying her). Lastly, unlike Yoko, she's so vastly different from her canonical self that it's a wonder why she's even in this story at all.
    • Possibly Hank Hill to Homer Simpson, as Hank (or generally King of the Hill) is getting shoved into everything considerably more often after Simpsons has been declared "retired." A variation of Vindicated by History also exists wherein some of his last few appearances (most notably the Housestuck: The Split-related storyline) gave him a Crosses the Line Twice Memetic Molester personality. What's puzzling about this is that Fan admited that there are times when watching reruns that he can't stand Hank, so God knows why he's chosen above characters like Dale or Boomhauer that he likes to represent the show.
    • Amazingly, Nepeta somehow pulled this off when compared to Vriska's canonical self. Waaaaay back in the original SJAHJ, the gag with the two of them is that they switch relevancies, so that Vriska is off doing very irrelevant filler involving making up for the bad things she's done in the past (initially not doing a very good job at it as part of the joke, then Characterization Marches On and karma's Serious Business to her) while Nepeta goes off making deals, being Ambiguously Evil, and trying to manipulate the plot as a whole and succeeding very well. The problem is, Nepeta lacks a lot of what makes the canonical Vriska interesting, such as not having the same backgrounds. Instead of being forced into her life by her lusii and raised with Alternian-highblood standards, she lives self-reliantly and with a relatively harmless lusus. Also, unlike Vriska, she comes off as a huge control freak that puts Aranea to shame with her "This has to go by my plans!" atittude and having an extreme opinion on absolutely everything. It doesn't help that nine times out of ten, said plans work (even when they honestly shouldn't), and when they don't she just generally acts very unpleasant. To almost Yandere-ish levels. Staples being her infesting given stories with clones of herself as well as being immortal until The Simpsons ends in Real Life (yeah... about that...), and said latter element actually being an important plot device do not help. At least Vriska stayed dead and in the Furthest Ring for a long while. Nepeta. Never. Leaves.
      • Fan may have finally caught on by Calliope's Back Story. She's much less relevant as of chapter eight, and while she does do things she is neither The Hero nor some secret backstage plot manipulator. Additionally, in 496 she's the Decoy Protagonist, while the real hero Meulin is written in a surprisingly more tollerable manner. Hella John: Sticker Star also gives her a minor role... in a way, the Bigger Bad was still using her as a puppet (but without her knowing about it). In HJSS she still gets more lines of dialogue than all human characters combined, which isn't saying much since the other characters do all the time.
  • Author Appeal:
    • Fan also admited to liking Cute Monster Girls. Especially when skin color is played around with. This is why the varrying previous incarnations of Eoflitt's friends have all had them match colors of their elements and generally seemed like they were part-element hybrids, the elemental class system in Total Zeksmit, why Life Springs from Slash of Mortality have such a bizarre output of human body types like multiple arms or just strange looks all-around, the 360's technical differences, the whole "360 race" system from Hill King, and possibly even why the Homestuck AUs following Sweet Jade and Hella John opt for a technicolor skin system for the humans.

The Hill King?
  • Always Chaotic Evil: While any given person of any of the 360 races could be good or evil, anything made by Icesky is villainous. This is justified in that they are really more like parts of her that carry out her will, more comparable to robots she programmed.
  • Crack Fic: A King of the Hill story about hunting various monsters of the week to prevent an evil ice goddess from killing 360 good goddesses and overtaking the universe.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Just about every sentient non-human character. Semi-justified in that they, along with humanity, were each made in the image of several Cute Goddess Girls. An exception to this is Icesky, who started off looking like a Palette Swap of Red before turning herself into a disturbing angel/skeleton-like hybrid.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: At the beginning, Appleseed tells to Hank about the world being created from a mysterious orb appearing out of nothing and then breaking into pieces that eventually became the 360 Goddesses and Icesky, then each of them made the universe with a patronee species made to resemble them and with given added traits of their choice. It turns out that the only thing he (and his group) got wrong was that the red, demon-looking one was actually one of the patron goddesses and even the unnofficial "leader", and not the angelic white-azure one. (Who was actually the villain.)
  • Fix Fic: It's not that evident, especially compared to some of the older concepts, but some elements of this show. Examples include preventing Luanne and Lucky from hooking up together and generally portraying Luanne as she was in the earlier seasons instead of her womanchild personality Flanderization threw upon her.
  • The Goomba: Spikes are an invocation of this, supposedly the weakest and most harmless of Icesky's forces, but to any ordinary people they're rather powerful.
  • Growing the Beard: The first chapters feel incredibly odd and jarring compared to the story proper. Back around then, it was still using the very last of the original concept of making "corruptions" of canon King of the Hill episode, and crammed them all together to the point where only one chapter out of this batch of seven was original (the fifth one, to be specific, and even that was a Minimalist Cast chapter soley about Hank and co. trying to kill a magic fish that adapts to any weapon used on it ala SCP-682). It also fell far too much under a status quo-following Monster of the Week romp to really feel that enjoyable, it was far too goofy for what it was worth, and the concepts of all the races and the goddesses felt wasted around then. It's not until chapter eight where major changeups happen to the King of the Hill cast and the ball gets rolling.
  • Lighter and Softer:
    • Compared to both Everburn and Fox Crew. This focuses more about the sillier side of King of the Hill magic-adventure fics, while Everburn is far more focused on the angst and, to a lesser extent, Fox Crew can get very serious at times.
    • The story treats the "Arlen-like" parts considerably more lightly and ideally than canon does at times. A lot of the Serious Business characters are more openly labeled as freaks and it generally portrays having different hobbies from the "norm" as, you know, something that wouldn't really kill you to do. Though some of the distant lands do lean more towards distopias, and everyone even in Arlen is as fight-happy as they were before.
  • Loads and Loads of Races: 360 of them, counting humanity. 361 if whatever race each of their patron deity's is are counted. (Goddesses?)
  • Pals with Jesus: Many of the Goddesses save for the Big Bad Icesky are rather friendly, especially ones like Red or Blue, so this is a given.
    • Red comes to good terms with Hank very early into the story and even sees him as a little brother, though it's one-sided until Hank warms up to her.
  • Rotating Protagonist: Unlike Everburn, which is more about Bobby, Joseph, and Connie; or Fox Crew, which is more about Hank, Dale, Bill, and Boomhauer, this cycles between the four Hills (Hank, Bobby, Peggy, and Luanne) a lot.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • The initial story was completely different from how it would later become. At first, it was planned to simply be Mind Screw-ish redoes of established episodes. Then it became a mix of that, but also an alternate universe where Hank was married to a considerably nicer Rip from Hellsing instead of Peggy, and Bobby turned out a vampire son (somehow) that spends most of the story figuring out his powers. It was going to have more of an arc around there, but not an outright story like it is here.
    • Before that was SIMPSONS, where it would start out as attempted Crosses the Line Twice "redos" of episodes the author did not personaly liked before everything connects to eachother and grows into an arc with Lisa being some sort of Eldritch Abomination and Bart having uncontrollable self-replication curse put on him.
    • Scrapped chapter concepts: A revise of "Sug Night" about entering Hank's dreams to get information on something Buck really needed him to remember (this was back in the Hellsing pseudo-crossover), "Three Days at the Kahn-do" only Hank, Dale, and Kahn have to deal with a shape-shifter (this too), "Bobby Goes Nuts" except with Bobby constantly going back in time to try to change things (this was around when he abandoned the crossover with HLS and went with a 360 Degree Duck-ish crossover, and the whole point of the chapter was supposed to show how stupid Time Travel can get), and an entire arc with Lucky as a deliberate Card-Carrying Villain who goes around in nothing but a thong and cape and he was trying to revive Debbie Grund. The latter would become a Witchita expy. Yes, really, this was going to be far more crack that it actually is. Aformentioned thong-Lucky villain got pushed over to SBIGlets.

  • Creator's Pet:
    • Played for laughs/invoked with Cheaper Edd. On his maker's download page, his "banner" is always on top (even though he's not the first character made, and they are ordered left to right and top to bottom by who is made) and three times as large as if to promote him more, his preview images show him wailing on the maker's other characters whereas their previews are always them beating Homer Simpson, and his description isn't nearly as factual as it is with every other non-joke character and instead written with glowing Purple Prose about how awesome he is. In-game, as the "cheap(er)" implies, he's intentionally made to have overpowered stats and comes off as being immortal to any regular fighters. Plus, eventually, he is the first character by this guy to have a full 99 victory quotes. Ultimately subverted as he's the closest thing there is to the Big Bad of his MUGEN 'verse and the other characters all seem to despise him, even if some of them confusingly appear in one of his hypers.
    • Hank Hill might be a straighter example. While he's supposed to be a Glass Cannon in-game, this is very much not evident thanks to the lower health and defense not at such a degree where it's even noticable. The maker also prioritized making him over most other characters, with Homer Army (an edit of Homer Simpson with a clone coding that was then touched up to fix some bugs, AKA someone that doesn't take that much effort to code), Glass of Water (a Joke Character that doesn't do anything and dies in one hit AKA someone that doesn't take that much effort to code), and FY (stick figure with simple sprites and movement, and is a slightly modified Kung Fu Man edit, AKA someone that doesn't take that much effort to code) getting higher priority than him. He also has special victory quotes and intros against every single other creation by the author (something nobody else has), and appears more often than anyone else in "Cheesecakestuck." Finally, he works the memetic picture of Hank smoking in all of his characters. Ironically, the guy says that he doesn't really like the canonical Hank that much, but that this is more of a case of a Creator's Pet Series.
  • Butt Monkey: Heightened even more than before when he gave his MUGEN projects Sburbian titles. Glass of Water, the intentional Joke Character who cannot attack and dies instantly from anything, is... Thief of Light. Virksa has fallen so far down the Butt Monkey pit in his fanworks that she's directly comparable to a completely harmless, non-living glass of water.

Now what is this?

  • Status: Deceased in Hella John: Sticker Star and his non-living cameo in Total Drama Race, presumed "alive" (AKA still intact) in all other stories.

History

Long before the events of Sticker Star, a strange merchant appearing to be Jack went into the woods of "World 3" and sold Nepeta a triad/quartet of items. Said merchant was really Bluetail himself, possessing Jack through unspecified long-range telepathy and later convincing him to break up the Sticker Comet when it passes. A few years later, the events of the story proper happen. Bluetail is first "seen" when John and Karkat explore the woods only to find a sleeping Nepeta blocking their path, with Bluetail's head watching them as they go back to Miracle Fortress to get the Trumpet Thing.

The rest of the story plays out in the background, with Bluetail being around while Nepeta transports John and Karkat over to the ocean rocks to kill a Royal Sticker-powered Vriska and later helping them fly off to the skies where Jack's Sky Ship lies. Shortly after Jack's defeat and Rose's rescue, the now-triad return over by the entrance where Nepeta complains about having some back and feet pain, as well as a worsening headache. They go back to her tree/cavehouse only for her tail to suddenly stick out straight and send a shock that knocks her out. Here, Bluetail briefly assembles and reveals himself, then stucks John, Karkat, and Rose inside of him, and shrinks himself and all three of them to go into Nepeta's body. In a lengthy battle, John manages to beat him, just for him to rush off with Karkat and retreat back in Jack's Sky Ship, now using it to resurrect an ancient castle he apparantly held in the past. The second battle is considerably longer, Nepeta tags along (to help the group chase Bluetail), and this time it ends with Karkat sacrificing himself so that John could have a power boost used to counteract with Bluetail's Royal Sticker.

Personality

Bluetail is incredibly patient, still, and calm towards almost everything. He handles even his personal losses in a steady manner and often breaks his plotting for tea. He does not mind pretending to be clothing accessories for years.

Appearance

Bluetail is primarly made of the blue pieces of Nepeta's usual outfit, because he is those pieces of her outfit. His feet are in the form of blue shoes, his head is her hat slightly re-arranged, and he bears a tail. Between all of these is a solid-blue stick figure body, including a pair of arms. Because of this, he slightly resembles Fan's M.U.G.E.N. original character FY. FY even has a blue palette in reference to him.

Bluetail's face can move and he even blinks frequently, but is almost always giving the default expression back on Nepeta's hat.

Abilities

Bluetail's primary abilities involve puppetiering other people, being either carapases or trolls. During the first of his two fights, he's also able to use this on humans, being able to make John hit himself. He can seperate key parts of himself as accessories to be worn by others, removing the "stick figure" part entirely. In fact, said stick figure is more of a series of temporary branches that link them all together.

Trivia

  • His role in the story may be a reference to Majora's Mask, in the Zelda installment that bears the same name. He initially appears as an article of clothing (or three, or four if you count each seperate shoe) attatched to a central character before revealing himself as the actual villain near the very end.
  • The concept behind him nods at a fanon theory that Nepeta's tail was a robotic extension of her spine created after Equius accidentally crushed it, given that he knocks Nepeta out by making the tail give a powerful shock to her spine. However, said theory does not apply in this world, and doesn't seem to apply in any other fic by this author so far (as, with the exception of the original SJAHJ, she's been tailless in all of them at least once, and even in the original she was later confirmed to not have that either).
  • Even as accessories, he does not appear in Sleptover or Kids Fight the Zombies and has yet to be in Calliope's Back Story, despite Nepeta being in all three of them. (She opts for a "lab outfit" in her brief appearance at the end of KFTZ, she's in her "pajamas" for the entirety of Sleptover, and in Calliope's Back Story she's often in her worker's uniform which only includes a more generic tail, or nude.)
  • This is one of the few blue characters in any GPF-related continuity that lacks a yellow counterpart. However, Fan confirmed that counter-Nepeta would have yellow versions of the hat, tail, and shoes, despite the fact that colors otherwise remain the same other than theme/text-related coloring.


  • The first few chapters were clearly shooting for a lot more of an aesop-ish situation, and even tied at least one of its villains to the moral (ie the first chapter just went for something generic about trust, its Monster of the Week was the Bad Boss of the 360; the second chapter had a sub-plot about Yellow not letting Blue decide everything for her and even tell her how to feel, the villain is a criminal who uses a magic that automatically paralyses people with fear while he steals valuables (eg, controlling their emotions)). This sort of dropped after the first arc and it became a lot more action based, mostly because the author felt he was poor at handling aesops and even now has no idea what, if any, message should be taken from the first chapter.
  • Cowboy Bebop at His Computer: As always, invoked.
    • Act 5 Vs Act 6 might be the worst offender of the series yet, and that's saying a lot. While it's a lot more respectful to Homestuck in a way than the other installments (which isn't saying much, it's still a weird AU based on Sonic 3 and Knuckles), towards the end a massive crossover portal opens that supposedly only includes Cartoon Network characters. Here's where the problems set in:
      • Timmy, Cosmo, Wanda, Spongebob, and Patrick are among the characters that step out of the portal. All five of them are from a Nickleodeon series.
      • It dis-considers Total Drama or any other Canadian-aired shows for not being actual Cartoon Network originals, only to go on and include some of their Toonami anime lineup.
      • The story delivers a quick Take That to Teen Titans Go!. Basically, the joke is that Vriska hears about the Titans being knocked out, getting concerned, then the said informer goes on and says it's their Go! incarnations, and then Jay Sherman jumps out of nowhere to say "And nothing of our value was lost." The whole joke being that there's a lot of problems with this. First: He's not a Cartoon Network character. Second: He's not from The Simpsons, that was only a crossover brought on by Executive Meddling. Third, he's "mis-named" Jay Leno. Fourth: That's not how the meme goes. Fifth: He also says "Well, that escalated quickly," and his show isn't even where that meme came from.

Snirk, no.
  • Memetic Molester:
    • Bluetail from Hella John: Sticker Star, presumably (this was never explored in-story) because he gets a good view of Nepeta every time she changes without her realizing it until the reveal. He also generally has a fondness for capturing kid characters (he technically order Rose's kidnapping on Jack's part, and in the climax he kidnaps Karkat for no discernable reason). Worse, unlike some other incarnations, this Nepeta takes her canonical age at only six sweeps/thirteen years old.
    • For that matter, Nepeta herself. Her using her butt as a One-Hit Kill attack (thankfully not in MUGEN though) probably had something to do with that.
    • Aranea and to a lesser extent Vriska have each had the role of a Slender Man-like figure, with several Combat Tentacles, arms, and other things like claws. The jokes practically write themselves.
    • Rick Abs. His bulk, his grin, his Yandere atittude towards Jade in almost all three of his appearances (though his normalest one so far had him learn more towards a Tsundere)... just about everything seems to be an invokation on this trope. But it isn't.
    • Karkat during Kids Fight the Zombies, mainly because he rivals Rick's levels of yandere-ness from that story and because he also crushes on Jade while in the form of a pink Godzilla.
    • Carl from Crconikals, since a scrapped ending for Hecksing would have implied that he was simply brainwashing Seras, Rip, and Zorin into loving him thanks to his "Gary Stu powers."
    • Judas in Isaac Unbounded of SBIGlets. After the second timeskip, one of the first things he does is punch Eve out of her towel during a post-P.E. shower. Granted, he was actually just trying to trigger her powers so that he could fuse them with his own, but still.

  • Obvious Judas:
    • Invoked with Walter. As a Running Gag, he would often quickly claim that he has no ties with the Millennium whatsoever after almost every mentioning of them.
  • Take That:
    • In chapter 20, when Itchy tells Dave that the item his group retrieved is called a "time bomb," Dave remarks that it sounds like something out of a bad Sonic game. Probably this one.

Okay, maybe:
  • Faux Action Girl: Actually invoked with Red. Despite being stated to be something of a good fighter with fire-related magic and claimed as a good leader, she spends about half of the story sleeping or sticking around at home or generally being less active than her more genuine Action Girl companions. Which is... well, what happens when you have a bit of a lazy lead. This bites her in the ass when Icesky tries to shame her by using her laziness against her, and when it comes to battles Red's about as incompetant compared to her allies (who quickly turn the fight around — Green, Blue, and Vermilion each outbeat her) as you would expect someone who doesn't go around that much. Turns out that she's considered The Hero simply because of the way she thinks, and how she's one of the only constantly clear-headed demons among their Disfunction Junction, full of people who don't take things too seriously or otherwise have some odd personality quirks.
  • Nominal Hero: Icesky from her perspecive and the perspective of others. While all of the actual heroes know right off the bat that she really hasn't done much heroic even before coming to the surface, she repeatedly claims to be a

  • Our Angels Are Different:
    • The closest we've seen to an angelic character in Crconikals (Cherubim appear to be a completely seperate and unrelated race, likely stemming from the alter ego having no idea that the two are connected) is Walter, who turns out to be a fallen angel and his "Angel of Death" title wasn't a lie. Word of God also states that he was kicked out of Heaven at the age of 15 for drunk driving, and four years later he met Integra. Possibly related to them are star spirits, but we've only seen one of them, Geno, and he does not last long to get much information on.
    • Ship But Not Romance has Dark Pit appear out of nowhere, although what exactly he is isn't left clear and he's mostly there just to die.
    • There are no angels in 360 Degree Duck so far (and in fact no concrete afterlife since demons are revealed to just be highly magic-infused people and all ghosts just sort of drift to a given planet's core), though the 360's ex-boss and the first chapter's Monster of the Week goes by the title "Anti Angel." Much later on is Icesky, who has somehow reversed her energy into "negative energy" and gives herself several angelic traits. She even calls herself an "anti demon." Because she's probably the Bigger Bad of the story, this is a case of Light Is Not Good.
    • A Slash of Mortality: The closest thing the story has to angels is the dopplegangers from the penultimate chapter, as this is what Joe refers to them as. (Though everybody else refers to them as "mirrors," "copies," etc.) Here, there is a counterpart to each person who enters Joe's parallel universe created, and they look like them aside from having a black and red color scheme. They also automatically drain away teleport matter, and increase in size if necessary to fight their corresponding person. Finally, they can almost instantly become stronger than their original self when in combat.

  • Wolverine Publicity:
    • In a bizarre mix of averting this to a large extreme, Fan actually removed a few references to My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic in Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals (the largest being the game John, Jade, and Rose played near the beginning, which was a pony MMORPG before it became a generic World of Warcraft knockoff that was intentionally blatant in how much of a ripoff it is). There was also the planned Five Nights at Freddy's nod at the beginning of the final chapter of Hecksing: The Dawn, where Kamina would have taken a night shift job for just a tiny bit of extra money to buy a gift, then have to fight Freddy when he runs out of power shortly before 6:00 am. This wasn't written — Fan initially forgot to put it in, but after remembering he had second thoughts. Both cases were because he did not want the references to overshadow what the stories are actually about in the small chance anyone actually reviewed, that HHC isn't "That Homestuck fan fic that begins with a pony game" and all comments on HTD won't be about the cameo. This alone is also why he's hesitant on doing anything FNAF-related in SBIG, even a Shout-Out until its popularity dies down a little. (While for FIM, it's also because he's a lot less familiar with the source show.)

  • Creator Backlash:
    • He still loathes Total Drama World Tour Rewrite, especially the first version of it that was published, and will go to great lengths to have characters break the fourth wall in his Stylistic Suck stories to mock it. Homestuck Rewrite primarly exists to make fun of it. He even considered killing the story outright if not for his disappointment in the selection of Fix Fics available at the time. Even so, the revamp that started in 2013 is a lot less positive towards its leads, particularly Harold. Overall, it reads less like a story in its own right and more like a 26-chapter long ad for his far more liked (aguably too much more liked) work in the fandom Total Zeksmit.
    • He also wants to distance himself from Sweet Jade and Hella John as much as possible, even if that's technically where most of the Recurring Elements made their debut. A "remake" that's damn-near a completely different story alltogether (the only similarity is the large number of permanent Character Death and that Dave, Rose, Roxy, and Dirk are still anagonists, neither of which happens until the second half), the original effectively being disowned and hit with Negative Continuity, most would-be references being scrapped, etc.
    • And with Onionstuck, the following MSPFA. In fact, this has the honor of being the first published fanwork that he completely discontinued until further notice. While Development Hell and Series Hiatus happen a lot (this guy tends to spend months between publishing anything unless it's a Crconikals "season" (and even then there's a span of several months), and said stories that come out might not be related, but this is the first time something has been outright claimed as discontined). He might make a Sburb fansession to replace it, but details aren't clear.
  • Jerkass Woobie:
    • Eve at the beginning before she snaps out of her Heroic BSOD (where she fits more under Iron Woobie instead). Yes, she took three people on a sudden and dangerous ride down a mountainside, and generally spent most of the early chapters trying to shove people into situations they didn't want to be in. But it's revealed that she discovered Spring-Immortality pretty early after survivng an accidental fall that also killed a pig, slowly came to the realization that she couldn't die, actually didn't like the idea of living forever, then put on her Kamina-esque act to try to convince others as much as possible that eternal life isn't something to fear because she didn't want anyone to feel as worried as she did. Once Matrarx tries to scare her off by finding a way to kill a Spring person (said person being Sarah, the closest Eve had to a mentor), Eve is absolutely devastated, blames herself for introducing the death of sentient life into the universe, and enters a state of depression that lasts for months. Even after completely breaking out of it and generally acting a lot nicer and more honest to her commerades, she comes back from the battle that saved the galaxy from being put into stasis just to get blamed for "trying to steal credit" and insulted for not being in the fight during the beginning. She doesn't really take a break until the story's end.
    • Mary. She genuinely tries to do the right thing, but her very bizarre cynic outlook earlier on means that she tries to force her leadership into bad situations thanks to her belief that it's impossible to have an outcome that doesn't have at least some consequence. She also tries to make up for her previous Lowyuist atittude when she was ten years old, but in the first half she tends to get haunted and mocked with it.
    • Even Joe. He first comes across as a massive dick of a god who threatens everyone and everything by him with existential erasure for not complying with his rules. Then it's revealed that, as his teenage appearance implies, he Was Once a Man in his home dimension who, as with the King of the Hill character his name and appearance are based on, was born through a secret affair with his parents. Unlike Joseph Gribble, he found out, and was broken over it. At some point after or before there he found a magic fruit that can grant near-divine powers, ate it, went to an empty dimension so that he could hide away there and work with creations, and thus started ASOM's world. The woobie part comes from how his home area is implied to be far more hostile towards other ideas than Arlen is, Joe really can't tell his state to anyone, and he gives himself this Blue and Orange Morality where he sees the people he created as no more real than Sims who have gone off the rails (while the previous ten chapters before his appearance confirm that they do have a lot of sentient thought on their own). His obsession with re-creating humanity and the Adam and Eve story specifically both came from him wanting a "do-over" in life yet being unable to figure out how to pull a complete Reset Button on all parties involved. In short, playing God is the closest thing he has to vent otu frustration on everything, since he's been geared by his society to believe in men not admiting emotions or even seeking help, which that combined with an addiction to ASOM's world seems to really be wearing him down.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Crossover:
    • SBIG was dominated by Homestuck from 2012 to about 2014. It has a total of seven installments primarly focused on itnote , while Ed, Edd n Eddy and Hellsing both tie for second at two each. Additionally, two of them (Sweet Jade and Hella John and Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals) are among the longest stories. This is planned to tone down a lot thanks to a large decline in interest in aformentioned comic, although it's admited to take a while since out-installmenting Homestuck can't really be instantanious due to how much it's already in. It's representation is noticably toned down as well, having only one major or secondary character (Dave) in naruto the guy with the ninja and even then he's heavily changed to the point of being unrecognizable.
    • King of the Hill, and it worms its way into serious stories as well. Both Mega Crossover fics so far (Everburn and The Fox Crew) are heavily KOTH-centric — though the former in a Rotating Protagonist sort of way — and often tend to get high focus whenever its characters are around. Additionally, SBIG fics often at least have a cameo from Hank in some way, even though KOTH as of now does not have a full installment or even a SBIGlet to its name yet. Hell, even in the "gang" in naruto the guy with the ninja, Hank is the designated leader for some reason (even though his team has a theoretical physicist, a badass Humanoid Abomination vampire, an Action Girl Badass Normal, and a Hot-Blooded man who doesn't take crap from anybody and even became the leader of his own team in canon. All four other characters honestly qualify as better leaders than him, as all he brings is his Boring but Practical lifestyle that can't really do much in the post-apocalypticish setting). Fan even made Hank in MUGEN above all characters except for two "tests" that don't take much effort to begin with, and he has pretty high stats. This gets so bad that a character in an otherwise Homestuck fan fic is a sprite that has part-Hank in him and has the bonus of holding omnipotent First Guardian powers, all hand waved because Meenah apparantly had a "phrase" where she like the troll version of his show and kept a standie lying around her house for some reason and prototyped it to shut up Meulin's then-sprite.
    • The original works are even more blatant in this regard. 360 Degree Duck is in almost everything in some way, despite (or maybe because of) claiming that he wasn't really satisfied with the way he built the initial story's world and seriously thinking of a major reboot since he was only one chapter in. Variations, cameoes, and the like of the 360 make an appearance a lot, and are even the driving force of the plot of The Hill King. They were even considered to be the players of the rebooted Onionstuck, replacing the Pikmin.
  • Took the Bad Film Seriously: In-universe.
    • SBIG has/had a Running Gag of at least one character being remarkably more sane than the others and speaking without any typoes. Since the series as a whole has toned down greatly on its intentional spelling mistakes, even avoiding some Throw It In cases, it's a lot harder to notice that particular aspect, but it's still easy to notice how much more detailed and rational sounding they are even when discussing very absurd plot points.
    • The author himself in The Fox Crew. He takes a Crack Fic about Hank Hill and his friends forming a mega crossover organization to fight off crime. For its premise alone, it takes itself pretty seriously and writes itself off as an otherwise normal action fic. For specific characters, you would have no idea that Winter and Summer originated from a joke meme on Tumblr considering how much genuine development they get. With cases like this and a few other stories he's well more than aware that it's a dumb idea, but rolls with it anyway.

  • Accidentally Accurate: Alucard's family's last name is Badguy, and Flanders even refers to him as "Mr. Badguy" in the first chapter. This is neither a reference to Sol Badguy nor its inspiration of Freddie Mercury's Mr. Bad Guy.

  • Energy Being: According to the scanners, Joe is 98.68% strange energy, with only a small amount of organic matter within him.

Both versions/Pre-Remastering (The version that currently exists)

  • Crack Fic: To the extent that Fan's still not actually sure why he wrote this.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Brenda's eyes flash red during the final battle, shortly before charging at the BBT couple.
  • Spiritual Successor: To Carl Stevens Universe, another bizarre crossover with very unfitting series (Steven Universe and the author's... sorta Hellsing AU from a fan fic made bad on purpose). It will be succeeded by New Super Dale Gribble U, though that one takes itself more seriously than this or CSU.
  • Whole Plot Reference: "The Sweaters" from The Amazing World of Gumball.

Post- (Summary because it might get a page?)

  • Avoid the Dreaded G Rating: The plot's actually pretty clean and tame. But it throws in references to infamous Shrek memes and has quite a bit of perverted humor when it comes to Penny and Brenda to try to justify its "T" rating.
  • Foreshadowing: Not to this story, but Hank Hill, Kamina, and Alucard all make very quick cameo appearances as a tight group together in the audience. They would then team up with BBT and PHF characters in naruto the guy with the ninja, who attack Sasuke's group in chapter 2 and have minor recocurring roles after that.
  • Mind Screw: There's suddenly another university and a bunch of people come out of nowhere to challenge the main leads to a series of needlessly complicated matches. And there's weird crossover. Notably, characters are implied to be able to mind-screw eachother and not just the only sane men: When Penny and Gerald break into an argument over whether anime or western cartoons are better, Brenda actually shrugs when Leonard asks where the hell that came from. The entire audience is equally confused.
  • Only Sane Man: Catman reprises his role from his canon self, and even tries to help Leonard escape the story's bizarre plot.
  • Ship Tease: Believe it or not, at the very least every combination of the four playing the tournament (Leonard, Penny, Brenda, Gerald) has been teased at some point or another. With Sheldon tossed in for some good measure. Curiously, all of them save Gerald (so far, anyway) appear in naruto the guy with the ninja, yet have very little interaction.

  • Just Here for Godzilla: Strangely, this is the opinion held by the author himself. He says that he was mainly motivated for writing this because he thought up a "rival gang" idea and really wanted to reach that point after deciding this should be where they make their appearance. He even thought of giving Hank and co. a spinoff for liking that ensemble more than Sasuke's, and already started on a joke fic that devoted itself to crack/Crossover Ships of all 10 combinations of Hank's group. Well, probably now fifteen, considering Penny's addition.
  • Running Gag:
  • Testosterone Poisoning: The Crystal Gems Kicking Ass You Guys!!!!!!!!!!!! is a very short chapter supposedly of what would happen if "Steven Universe listened to a lot of suggestions." To keep it simple, it starts with the Gems aboard a cloud's worth of helicopters carrying giant aircraft carriers armed to the point of overflowing with tanks that each have cars inside of them. This isn't just a flowery description for show, either: after landing in "The Bad Gem"'s base, every single one of those will be used plus a ton of guns and explosions that would even put Michael Bay to shame if this were animated. And yes, the Gems kick ass. A lot of ass. Too much within the short span of it, in fact. Also, Duke Nukem replaces Steven. The whole point of this was Fan trying to defend the show's comparative lack of action and sentient enemies, by saying that while those might be nice, focusing too much on making it an adventure could be very detrimental to what it's built itself up as.
    • Duke's appearance is a nod to how similar Fan's web story 360 Degree Duck may come off as being to Steven Universe, as its male lead started off as a joke expy of Duke before the story was written but then got retooled into someone new, who still kept the name. Everything else is just wow.
  • Trolling Creator:

Sounds like something you'd hear in Super Smash Bros..

  • Easy Evangelism
  • Personality Powers? Averted. The elements are personalities were thought of seperately. Red a fire-using character who is incredibly laid-back, lazy, and sleeps for about half her screen time; Blue is a water-user but a bit of a geek that

Very general color chart:
  • Red: The Hero.note 
  • Light Azure: Ultimate, personal villain of the hero's.
  • Blue and Yellow: Duality, tied link to eachother. In some rare times, they act against eachother, but are tried to see if they can actually work together.
  • Gold: "General" evil.

That's it for right now.

    Idea Jotting Part Two? 

  • Complexity Addiction: In a (non-"canon") SBIGlet, the Crew tries to fix up the events of chapter 10 of the Split or at least make a more ideal timeline by seeing what happens if they use Die's doll to avert Alucard's death (which is kind of the most they can do, since said character is the only major hero who dies that wears a hat most of the time). Nepeta's attempt is simple: She shouts at him not (oh screw it unmarking spoilers) to show Jan Luke, but Jan finds out Alucard has Luke absorbed anyway, and detonates his robo-arm for the same reason. Then she tries to be more vauge and tells Alucard not to use the state that shows Luke, but he remarks that because Jan insulted his hat and glasses, it's personal. She repeatedly does very trivial or unnecessary things, even fixing up his tank so it wouldn't stall on him (which fails because it turns out his tank was low on gas anyway, and this didn't come out of nowhere — Integra mentions it back in Split. Also apparantly vampires can drown). Other characters try incredibly complex mechanics as well, yet this still fails. Giving up, Nepeta comes to the conclusion that Alucard's death is one of the few, if only, events that cannot be changed with Split itself being the "only" exception (comparing it to "The Time Traveler's Pig,") then Virkso snatches the doll and simply bludgeons Jan to death with a silver baseball bat. With that, Alucard's fine and this creates an ideal timeline where all diseases are cured within a year after the Millennium war, everyone has a house, and Futurama gains a lot of success with several episodes and is still ongoing by 2018 at the least. (It also covers some of the changes to the Crew, like how the Troll Empress would have never noticed them due to Alucard at least being alive for the jury duty experiment, and thus none of season four would happen, and the Crew would take down Scratch a lot earlier.) It turns out that Alucard just went into the battle in a very crappy tank condition.
  • Continuity Lockout: Good luck reading either Hecksing: The Dawn or Housestuck: The Split without Ulumate or Hurrcain Crconikals first. (And in the latter case, the 8ackstory that ties HHC with HTS, where the first generation uses the Ballad of Duality and everyone fights the Shadow Hourglass as part of Hank's test) You'd be confused at the most basic things, such as:
    • Hecksing: The Dawn: The significance of Alucard's tank, who the hell this "Carl" guy mentioned in the flash forewards is, why Rip is such a Heel-Face Revolving Door, the significance of Kamina and his time traveling (although originally Ulumate Crconikals never mentioned Chief/Kamina's work as a time traveler), what the hell Ned Flanders is doing there, why Cortana is with Kamina, and what the ending signifies. Then there's the backstory, like who Alucard's Bro is and why everything just generally feels so weird. It's the consequence of making a universe with continuity out of minor jokes like Alucard getting punched across the ocean. Granted, many of these Make Just as Much Sense in Context, it's just that the story appears a lot more random when the continuity it's based on is unknown.
    • Housestuck: The Split: Why there are two of everybody (or four depending on what you count) and they can change their sex at will or split into two yet again but in a different way from these "counterparts," why the Felt-lephrechauns are suddenly chummy with the Rainbow Crew, why there's a fairy-like Hank Hill flying around naked, why he's so obsessed with Homer Simpson, how Latula knew about Tony Hawk being an actual were-hawk, why Dave and Roxy each jump in on some seemingly random couple in bed and interrupt them, what a "Zergizock" is, how Xenomorphs fit into this and why two of them act crazy and feral while the others are fairly intelligent, why this minor character from Hellsing is suddenly a major threat, what the "Bond of Ichigo" is, jokes about Nepeta's door knock— hell, half of the Nepeta-related jokes in general, and how the hell time travel works in the Crconikals continuityIt's actually kind of simple . Hint: HHC's in-fic summarynote  is all bullcrap, as is the cover image. The entire continuity growing into something needlessly complicated does not help.
  • Fridge Horror: Nepeta being able to take Gamzee out with her ass seems like a one-off joke and a very oblique reference to someone's headcanon drawing, but this very same story has Gamzee survivng a direct hit from a nuke like it's nothing. What the hell is wrong with that girl?
  • Mind Screw: Believe it or not, you can make sense out of this continuity. The individual stories go on and make something resembling internal consistency that's actually followed decently (To the point that Fan deems even the slightest contradictions "unacceptable" and works around them ASAP). You just gotta piece everything together. What's confusing is that some stories are closely related to eachother, some aren't at all, and you can't be sure if a story with the same characters means it's a different incarnation or it's a Stealth Sequel or Stealth Prequel. It's even more confusing thanks to SBIGlets, which is a series of short stories meaning far more installments. At least, whether or not something takes place in the Crconikals universe is made openly clear. However, Crconikals has at least two major timelines, and aside from the "main" four (HUC, its prequel HTD, HHC, its alt HTS, the latter being the only one that takes place in the split timeline), good luck figuring out which of them if any it's supposed to take place in.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Die's doll apparantly has a switch that goes from "summons a new copy of a dead person" and "warps to another point in time/another timeline where that person is alive or dead." The reason why nobody, not even Die himself, noticed prior to Gamzee pointing it out is because the switch is located by the groin. Subverted in that this feature is not actually used, but it is toyed around with in a rather confusing SBIGlet where Nepeta tries to undo Alucard's death by making a pin based on Alucard (Pretty much the only major heroic character unless you count Kamina's Master Chief uniform to wear a hat, to have a hat, as Nepeta goes hatless for most of the story as does everyone else).
  • Potty Emergency: Chapter 19 ends with the entire Rainbow Crew getting poisoned by Bororo tainting local Alternian food with both ipecac and laxatives. They rush all the way back to Chicago on one of their many flying ships (piloted by Gamzee, the only one who became sick on the previous day and is now feeling better. Karkat points out how terrible it is to them that the only one who doesn't have to go is the one controlling the speed), just to run out of gas, crash into a lake, and are forced to make a large hole at the bottom of the boat to go out on. This all happens in the text-equivillent of "offscreen" (it says that focus is mostly on Gamzee, and the comic version supports this by only showing the outside of the ship during this), though Rose does barf onscreen and as the Crew leaves the lake a greenish-brown puddle is said to be expanding under the ship.
    Rose: John, Jane, keep rowing. NOW!
  • Serious Business: These are all played for laughs.
    • Golf in Illinois (or maybe just Chicago; it tends to very from unvierse to universe) is very serious business.
    • Futurama. Insulting it will get you branded as a freak by random citizens, though maybe your friends will still like you. Mostly if you've saved their lives prior (sort of like Nepeta. Who saved the other trolls twice, even). At one point Flanders has an idea to let Alucard launch him from a tank turret (Flanders has strong religion-magic, so it's not as stupid as it sounds), and Alucard refuses to since he doesn't want to harm him. Then Flanders says he hates Futurama, and Alucard's unwillingness to fire him plummets.
  • Spoof Aesop: Surprisingly, each chapter of season six "tries" to have some simple moral along those lines.
  1. # War Is Hell, but this is intentionally broken by having the Crew comit several heroic actions that are glorified near the end.
  2. # COUNTRIES WHERE YOU CAN GET EXECUTED FOR KILLING A SHARK IN SELF-DEFENSE ARE BAD.
  3. # Your mother can sleep with whoever she wants as long as it isn't cheating or just illegal, but you don't have to worry about her dating a jackass rockstar vampire from Mars.
  4. # Don't trust rumours on the street, even if they sound like very convincing ones about the dangers of time travel.
  5. # Censoring nudity is equal to pollution... somehow.
  6. # DON'T MAKE DEALS WITH SUSPICIOUS VAMPIRES!note 
  • Wham Episode:
    • Chapter 10. It seems to be gearing towards the Crew's showdown with the Troll Empress, while Hecksing goes on to fight Rip. Then things go... off. Walter finally betrays Hecksing at a key moment, killing Integra. Except by this point, Carl (not a big deal), Seras (a much bigger deal), and Cortana are killed in the assault. The latter when the plan to hit Rip with a virus-loaded mustke backfires when Rip is tipped off about this and flings it into the hologram instead. Denise and Kaitana's ambush fails when Jaws sneaks up and kills them, too. When T.E. actually gets an upper hand when her fight crosses with Rip's and ends up frying the Captain, Rip gets incredibly pissed and uses telekinesis to throw the neighboring galaxy into the Milky Way like a shuriken. Earth crashes into the old Alternia, several black holes are now dangerously close to both planets, all of Hecksing is dead save for Alucard and Kamina, the Troll Empress is killed in the split timeline too, and finally, Yoko finally makes an appearance. Rip also has a similar reaction to how she did in the loop timeline by being added by Jude's breakdown, except instead of giving a big speech about turning her life around and spending the rest of it doing good, she floats away. There's still three chapters left, and Fan confirmed that this will not be reseted away.

General?
  • The Woobie: Aradia. Seriously, nothing ever goes her way in any of this guy's stories, and she almost never gets a happy ending (496 probably being the only exception). She dies often, usually after coming back to life, and usually in pretty painful (physically or emotionally, mostly the latter) ways. Like in Sweet Jade and Hella John HD, where Roxy pushes her into the Despair Event Horizon by having more and more of her clones invade the hall she's in while threatening to conduct an experiment to turn her into a living object in an And I Must Scream state, just to have Jake sneak in a dreamself to shoot her soley to put her out of her misery.

This may not happen since it could be too much of a ripoff of Sonic Zombie Shopping Mall. It might be modified considerably, but the whole very general "rival gang" concept will still be wormed in. guy with the ninja [sic]:
  • Affably Evil: Hank's entire group. Leonard admits that he was just following around Hank for directions and trying to survive in the apocalypse, and gets knocked out by the Master Chief. Alucard might have terrified Squidward, but he (Al) accepts defeat when Squidward lies and says that his pirate-speek is racist against sea-creatures. Brenda just goes around grilling charcoal burgers, even when Dave outright challenges her to a fight, but only ever proposes a non-lethal competition before Dave suddenly knocks her out (this actually causes her to sneak up on him and stab him through the back after waking up, which would have killed him if not for Harry and Sasuke). Kamina actually re-considers any kind of conflict with Sasuke's group and offers a truce with Harry, but Harry has a Stupid Sexy Flanders moment and spaces out on the conversation to try to distract himself, so when Kamina offers a handshake he's alarmed and knocks him out too. Hank himself is the only one that is constantly hostile to the whole gang.

Hella John: Sticker Star, originally this was just going to cover stuff related to the twist but then....
  • Adults Are Useless: We don't even know who raises who in this AU, as none of the guardian figures of any of the humans or trolls have been covered.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation:
    • Is Jade just generally being elusive and not really wanting to stick around any given place for good, or is she an Only Sane Man who wants to be involved as little as possible with the story's plot and thus running away whenever she notices the "main characters?" Yes, the latter interpretation actually is valid, seeing Rose's apparant self-awareness and dislike for the storyline, and how this entire fan fic is not meant to take itself seriously at all.
    • Is Nepeta really a huge ditz and as childish as the story presents herself, or was Bluetail secretly one big plan of her's all along that somehow backfired, and she's really the same behind-the-scenes manipulator Fan always writes her as?
    • Similar to the Jade example, when Karkat remarks near the beginning that he would "leave if he could," is he talking about just John or the entire story as a whole?
    • Where are the guardians? Or lusii?
  • Demoted to Extra: It's probably easier to list the characters who have long roles in the story. Probably: John and Karkat. That's pretty much it.
    • Jade gets this harder than anyone else despite being one of the earlier main characters of canon. She's the Luigi of the story. Meaning, she gets zero lines and only five very brief appearances in the whole story that amount to cameos.
    • Vriska is simply cast into the role of Gooper Blooper, just being a boss that shows up and gets defeated/killed with very little lines. Unsurprising, since this is Fan we're talking about, who has made Vriska irrelevant as a gag way back when and then Flanderized that.
  • Dude, Not Funny!:
    • Karkat referring to Nepeta as a "fat bitch" got this especially when, according to Fan's headcanons (which this story is no exception to), she isn't really fat at all. In fact, she's probably slimmer than the majority. At least with Terezi there was some justification since A: Unlike Nepeta (who was simply sleeping at the forest entrance) Terezi was crushing him and trying to kill him, and B: the Green Royal Sticker transformed Terezi into a bloated plant monster. Then again, this might have been the point; if Karkat were to act enjoyable and not just offensive and even borderline Caliborn-ish, he would provide genuine and most importantly constant humor (since, unlike the only definite self-aware character Rose, Karkat's around for the whole trip) that would make the fan fic feel less ironic than it is and turn it to "Sticker Star, but with Karkat commentary replacing Kersti's."
    • The way Aradia's death was handled in general. John killing an Ill Girl without giving it a second thought or trying to come up with a third option to stop her bones from dissolving just came off in bad taste.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Like Mizzter Blizzard before her, Aradia gets this for being one of the few, if not only, characters with any actual characterization whatsoever and having a surprisingly harsh and woobie-ish life prior to the events of the story. Sadly, Fan's atittude towards her still hasn't changed.
    • Bluetail, for coming the hell out of nowhere and being a twist that Crosses the Line Twice in how weird it is. The Big Bad is Nepeta's hat?
  • Esoteric Happy Ending: Rose is saved and the Comet Festival rings on, but more than half of the trolls have been Killed Off for Real (Gamzee, Equius, Vriska, Aradia, Terezi, Feferi, Eridan, and Karkat — granted all of them except Karkat were in the role of a boss fight, Bowser Jr., and Kamek respectively, but still, this is more than canon), Dave is still probably getting his ass kicked around, Kanaya might have lost her house, Aradia in particular simply wanted a new body but got killed again for the sake of her Royal Sticker, there's nothing stopping another member of Bluetail's species from trying to hijack someone again, and overall the end situation is something surprisingly bleak for a story based on the lightest Paper Mario game in the series.
  • Hidden in Plain Sight: Nepeta is technically wearing the Big Bad and she doesn't even know it.
  • Minimalist Cast: There are only eighteen characters of any note at all in the whole story: The original four kids, the original twelve trolls, Jack, and Bluetail. There are twenty-one chapters. This marks a first for the creator, coming up with something that has more chapters than it does characters even if Total Zeksmit is lumped up and even counting 496 Reasons. (Both of them thanks to having Loads and Loads of Characters.)
  • Mythology Gag: Even though the actual Sticker Star abandoned many Paper Mario traditions and recurring gags, you can still find the occasional GPF joke in here.
    • Vriska is, unsurpiringly, irrelevant and has a very minor role just to fill out space. What's a little less expected is that she carries on Aranea's role from Sweet Jade and Hella John (HD remake or the original) in turning into a Slenderman-esque squid monster.
    • Gamzee still remains the first one to get killed off. Aradia is also subject to They Killed Kenny Again.
  • Off the Rails: After about twenty chapters of following Paper Mario: Sticker Star's story rather closely, suddenly Nepeta's blue items (her hat, tail, and shoes) reveal to be alive, and a creature known as Bluetail. He proceeds to burrow microscopic "roots" into Nepeta to put her into paralysis, then shrinks down in her and fights John as well.
  • The Scrappy: Karkat is made into this. By intention, he wasn't meant to be liked at all. But here he's outright abhorrent. He casually insults almost everybody in ways that reminise Caliborn's insults more than his canon comments, like repeatedly calling Nepeta, Terezi, and Aradia "fat bitches" for seemingly no reason. Like Kersti, he's also incredibly rude to John and somehow captures her Guide Dang It moments by letting John cluelessly wander around a given area more than once because he refuses to give advice that doesn't amount to stating the obvious. The worst part about this is that, since John is made into a Heroic Mime, Karkat is the only constantly re-occuring character with any dialogue at all.
  • Stylistic Suck: Not in the way of Troll Fics filled with spelling and grammar errors, but the whole story is intentionally written to be as boring and uninteresting as possible until a twist near the end.
  • Suddenly Voiced: Inverted with John, Jade, and most of the bosses, who are made silent (or, in the boss's case, just give about one line that usually involves "shine") despite having dialogue in canon. For no apparant reason other than to make the story even duller and emptier than it is, and to nod to canon.
  • Surprise Creepy: To explain things like how Vriska can possibly fall under the role of Gooper Blooper, Royal Stickers now have very unsettling mutations to the infected person. Vriska herself resembles Slenderman. Also, eight of the trolls are Killed Off for Real and the true Big Bad has a rather morbid plan.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion? Bluetail has been mistaken as female, probably because he disguised himself as accessories to a female character. Only Word of God confirms he's male, as he is never referred to by pronoun in the story.
  • Walking Spoiler:
    • Bluetail is the real Big Bad and the only actually original character to the story. He's a WS because he completely derails the Sticker Star-based story and sends it in a completely new direction.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: All of this was intentional, to reflect the original Sticker Star's take on this as well. Pretty much every character aside from Karkat and maybe Nepeta fall under this.
    • Want to see more of Gamzee, Equius, Vriska, Aradia, or Terezi? Too bad. They're seemingly randomnote  appearances only near the end of the respective "world" section and, aside from Aradia, have almost nill characterization and very little lines that aren't about shiny things. The fact that the bosses actually die after John defeats them just makes this a lot worse.
    • Eridan and Feferi only get three appearances each, taking on the roles of Kamek and Bowser Jr. respectively for some reason and not getting much done. They are also permanantly killed after John's fights in Jack's Castle and Feferi's Airships respectively.
    • Jack is the Bowser of the story, and because of this it's almost inevidable that he would be wasted too. Unlike Bowser, he doesn't appear at the beginning — there's a freak storm and suddenly Rose is gone, with little indication other than a feather that Jack did it. Additionally, he is portrayed as a mindless brute with no personality and has a whopping total of zero lines in the entire fan fic.
    • Rounding off the trolls, Karkat may be the Exposition Fairy and Nepeta takes on the rather important role Wiggler had, and Sollux is the shop keeper (all of them), but Kanaya and Tavros are shoved off to random NPC roles. Kanaya's simply replacing the Toad in Drybake Oasis and Tavros the onlooker in the Lookout Point, the latter having no role in the plot but to exposit that the poison in the forest is coming from something out by the rocks.
    • The humans don't fare much better. John may be The Hero, but he's made into a Heroic Mime for no reason other than to spite the readers and has little characterization becides nodding whenever Karkat "suggests" the next location to go. Jade only makes a few lineless cameoes and doesn't do anything except walk away whenever John and Karkat notice her. She's just there to be there. Rose and Dave do talk, and Dave has the role of the Traveling Toad, but Rose's only role in the storyline is to get kidnapped at first and she only really does anything of significance after the story' been derailed.
    • Want to see anyone introduced in Act 6? Any of the guardians or ancestors? Carapases becides Jack? Anyone? Once again, no such luck. As far as this story's concerned, basically everything not introduced before Act 6 exists, and even older canonical characters don't get attention.
    • Even the one original character who turns the story Off the Rails counts as this. Bluetail. The concept behind him is very bizarre and unique — the plot is hijacked by Nepeta's hat, of all people or objects, and he sends everything into a completely new way. Unfortunately, even when it looks like more "signature GPF elements" are going to be put in, Bluetail's actions just amount to two more fights and bam, the story's over.
  • Womb Level: Most of the real final battle takes place with John and Karkat shrunken and inside of Nepeta.

  • One Steve Limit: Aversions by crossover:
    • Edward: Ed, Edd n Eddy (times three! The show itself averted this!), and Cullen (HHC).
    • Connie: Maheswaran and Souphanousinphone (EB).
    • Sadie: Steven Universe and Total Drama (a short little joke project about many stories being in Total Drama, though the Sadies never actually interacted with eachother).
    • Eve: The Binding of Isaac and Fan's own story, A Slash of Mortality (a SBIGlet mega crossover, that was specifically SBIGlets vs original web fiction the guy wrote. The name similarity is never pointed out in-story, but the two's personalities are so different that it's pretty jarring to see them interactnote .)
    • Simon (but pronounced differently): The digger and the American Idol judge. (As a one-note joke.)
    • Kenny: McCormick and the Hacker from Hecksing: The Dawn. The latter is not to be confused with Haxxor.
    • Violet: The 360/360 Degree Duck, and this name is given to any AU versions of the post-scratch Rose Lalonde (See: Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals (she also goes by Sis by the narrative and other Rainbow Crew members, but her past self is referred to by her actual name and older characters call her that in the present), Calliope's Back Story). But she goes by Vlie, to fit the four-letter theme.
    • Margaret, though they go by different names: Peggy Hill from King of the Hill and Icesky from 360 Degree Duck. Possibly Brenda from Perfect Hair Forever. It should be noted that Icesky's real name was actually based on Peggy's, she was named such because of how the character shares Peggy's arrogance.
    • Dale: Gribble and Strider/Coolkid (Fan's name for Bro when he and Dirk are supposed to co-exist, as one straighter example of the trope is renaming guardian and ancestor variations of everyone so there won't be the massive coincidence of 32 people with the same names as another 32).
    • Dirk: Strider and Blaque.
    • Name changes to play this straighter: Before Desert City was finished, Amethyst's Desertite counterpart was named Peridot, but that changed thanks to "Warp Tour." The eponymous city actually was still going to be named "Desert City" before that name was dropped in canon, and it's a retroactive nod to that line. Rick Abs was originally named Joey, but Hiveswap has a character confirmed with that name. If this happens again I'm just giving him a five-letter name.

  • Odd Name Out: Because new names are given to the guardians and ancestors, there are some cases where three of the names may seem to have something in common, then the fourth... doesn't.
    • Striders/Coolkids: Dave, Dirk, Dale, and... Burt. Though this might have been a coincidence seeing as Dale is named after Dale Gribble.
    • Lalondes/Drunkies: Rose, Violet/Vlie, Lily, and... Roxy. The latter is the only one without a floral theme naming.

  • Canon Discontinuity:
    • The original Sweet Jade and Hella John, frankly, does not exist at all in the overall continuity of this guy's stories. To the extent that a crossover idea with Gumball Vs SatanExplanation  was scrapped completely with a note explaining how it would have gone. Even moreso in naruto the guy with the ninja where Hank remarks that he's the only member of his group that has had no incarnation fo him die yet, when he was shot and killed by Aranea. HD acts as its "replacement," although the original has a tiny amount of references to it in future works.
    • While Total Drama World Tour Rewrite is part of what counts as the "overall continuity," the story itself is referenced considerably less often than anything else, especially his pet Total Drama fanwork Total Zeksmit. When it is, chances are it's through Self-Deprecation. Fan even outright said that when it comes to referncing TDWTR he has little to nothing for it that makes the story "stick out." "What would be a way to represent it? Poorly written polygamy?" This went to the extent that Homestuck Rewrite existed soley to self-mock TDWTR.
    • And Homestuck Rewrite itself was planned right from the beginning to be All Just a Dream (and to add insult to injury, it's confirmed that the "real world" the dream was in is not going to have a Sburb session and is nothing like HR's world at all). This was planned as HR was going to be pretty crappy.

  • Surprise Creepy:
    • The first half of Sweet Jade and Hella John HD is remarkably friendly and nothing bad happens to the given characters. Then the second half takes a large plunge into Black Comedy. We have Rose turning into a creepy, headless vampire, Dirk slowly getting taken over by his own Auto Responder and turning into a cyborg monstrocity, Dave is made into a deranged maniac from Jade's incredibly rude bully and turns into the paranoia-inducing, hero killing Big Bad, and Roxy into an equally-crazy Mad Scenientist who creates a huge sum of clones of people just to stitch them together in horrific monsters and occasionally throw in other disgusting changes to them to make them into living weapons. The second half also has such light-hearted fun as Roxy threatening to make Aradia into a living wall-mount, Dave eating the multiverse, Dave cutting through previously major and fleshed out characters from the first half like nothing, and a very bleak and hopeless world. The crazy part is that this is all foreshadowed through subtle clues in the Pesterlogs, it's just that there is absolutely no indication that this is what the story is leading up to (for example, how the hell is Roxy talking about four eyes all the time and mispelling a Cat Smile as ::3 supposed to be taken as a sign that she'll stitch cat parts and extra eyes on herself?)
    • Hella John: Sticker Star. Fun (Actually the story was intended to be as boring as possible until the end) based on Paper Mario: Sticker Star, and the original trolls and kids all live within the same town together (save Nepeta, who lives by the woods). Now watch as John, who grew up with all of them as at least acquaintances, finds out that over half of them have either seeked a Royal Sticker for one reason or another and gone mad with it, or were very quick to betray him in the first place to serve Jack. And they'll all killed off during the story. Including a girl who was, basically, terminally ill and only wanted to stay alive.


The Obligatory self-insert

Great Pikmin Fan is the author of all of this madness. He occassionally appears in some fan fics or even rarer original stories, usually the sillier ones, as a mild form of comic relief. He always takes on the appearance of a green Pikmin with no features at all (save for a mouth back in the original SJAHJ) and it has been confirmed that he has a running gag of eventually getting killed in all of his appearances.

Appearances

Sweet Jade and Hella John

Great Pikmin Fan's largest role in any given story was SJAHJ. He usually provided the recaps of it (while later fics would have a more major or appropriate character do it), but he was later revealed to be housed in Springfield as one of Caliborn/Edmund's servant Pikmin. While it is reasonable that his character was "born" through the Mario session > Prospit as Pikmin seeds were available and brought to existance in the former then harvested in the latter, it was later confirmed that this may or may not be the case and the real-life GPF is not sure exactly how his self-insert comes into existance in any of his stories.

He is first seen when Jade is running through the prior Mario worlds to catch up to John's location after Karkat mistakeningly sends her back to the beginning of the game. He explains that this "running through several locations in quick succession" gag was admitedly somewhat stolen from another fan adventure, and Jade crosses into his room. He asks how this happened, she doesn't give an answer and ignores him, but it is later revealed that she stumbled into portals that linked them over. Much later, he makes another appearance, and is quickly quieted by Edmund demanding him to stay silent. [Not sure about this last sentence. This is mostly by memory, or in the other sections planning some stuff in the future.]

When Aranea reveals herself as a hidden Millennium spy and launches an attack on Springfield to assist Millennium's war, she and her mind-controlled troll army ambush Pikmin Fan and get him killed. This is so that she can steal his recaps, and gain foresight on future events. Which was the final step in her plan before pulling a double-cross on the Millennium and slaughtering the Simpsonians. After that, his ghost returns to the curtain/astral room, and he explains to Rufioh's ghost on how the curtains work. His final appearance is him typing up the final recap, and generating an epilogue for the comic itself. He is one of the few characters technically not seen in the epilogue proper, though his last role is right before it begins.

Sweet Jade and Hella John HD

Fan's screentime in the official replace has significantly diminished and his role as the recapper is replaced by Jane for the first two, then Nepeta for the last two. He only has three appearances, and they are all cameoes: During the pseudo-walkaround "[S] Karkat: Seek the COOLSHADES" and related pages, he appears as part of the audience of Dave's pseudo-theater. When Karkat interacts with him, he only gets the same "........." that the actual dummies give him, even though he is obviously alive and not another fake like they are. The dots are colored in his "quirk:" They have a green background, and three are red, three are yellow, then three are blue.

When Roxy is unleashing her genetic abomination army on the hemisphere, Fan's corpse is seen among the group that is left impaled by Dave. Presumably, one of Roxy's clones killed him, and Dave came back to impale the remains as he usually does. Dave was likely not the killer as Fan is not cut in half.

After Dave's Effigy-Nuke, there is a quick scene showing Hussie leaving a bomb shelter perfectly intact. In the bottom left corner of these pages, Fan's burnt head can be seen lying on the floor.

Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals/Aranea's 8ackstories

Pikmin Fan is revealed to be the "viewer" of Aranea's 8ackstories after Aranea finishes reading all four tales. Unlike the original Sweet Jade and Hella John, wherein he seemed to hold omniscient knowledge on its events, here he's more of a clueless reporter trying to get information from "this cool story idea" of his. On his way out, he is accidentally killed during a raid attack by Cartman.

496 Reasons

During Equius/Rose, one of the many other sessions encountered was one with "carrot-ant creatures" who are obviously Pikmin (but never referred to by name, even though Roxy is familiar with it canonically and this very fic aknowledged that prior. Roxy herself never encounters them onscreen, but presumably did some time that was not shown). This is all a nod to Onionstuck, including Meenah's comments on how their session seemed to fail as soon as the species playing the game turned out to be them. Fan is with them, claims to not be a real part of the session so much as an onlooker, and is already dead. This counts for the "death" of the story. The character himself is initially very reluctant to talk to anyone, but breaks into a massive essay once Rose asks to describe something he wrote. She then exploits his sheer change in dialect for brief humor.

His summary of an obvious 360 Degree Duck clone also contains some exposition of how he is in the fic proper, namely that this particular instance of him was from a doomed timeline yet might also be the only instance of him in 496's multiverse, and he describes how he was crushed after trying to take on the Black King by himself to stop Skaia's scripted loss. This is a reference to Fan's tendancy to enjoy breaking the rails of something as much as possible, and Onionstuck itself being about a "White Session" where Prospit wins.

Fan is not seen after this and was presumably absorbed into Duplicate Meulin like the rest of the Furthest Ring, then freed at the very end.

Calliope's Back Story Verse

He appears in a non-canon tag-along titled Into the Mind of the Maker where Calliope discovers him passed out in the woods. After some more trivial events, he is awakened and retreats over to a hidden "workshop" of his burried underground. The place turns out to be more of a factory crossed with a lab. When asked what he is doing, he replies by saying that this is the final Homestuck AU of his and he will move on to doing "similar-ish story ideas" with 360 Degree Duck, and he remarks that he might even end this on a sour note so as to advertize others to switch over to DD instead. The heroes protest this, and this results in a sequence where Great ends up knocked out again. Calliope decides to use her Spiritual Taps to enter Fan's mind and see if they can further talk things out, and brings the entire group along with her. His dreamscape appears as a vast jungle-like area full of giant flower vines and branches made of leaves clearly inspired by the Pikmin series. The enemies are all hybrids of the protagonists of his original stories (EG "Woavors" = Woat from Soap + Trevor from Ant Infestation). The "Boss" of the area is Fan himself, using the 360 as an army akin to both Pikmin and the Luiginary attacks from Mario and Luigi: Dream Team. The fight ends with Fan losing and accepting defeat. He wakes up and surrenders...

...Only for him to try to use his 360-"creations" that were made in the proper factory and launch a surprise attack. This fails, they end up breaking several support beams due to too many of them flooding after the heroes at once in a cramped space, and cause the whole factory to become unstable and collapse. The heroes leave through the exit door, the 360 replicas all take a transportalizer with an unknown destination out, but Fan himself is left unable to escape and dies when the whole place crashes on him.

Ant Infestation

He's mentioned in passing during Ant Infestation when Trevor is knocked into a building. The story says he passes "a weird green guy with a stem and leaf from his head," then runs by without giving much thought. Fan is swallowed by the ant swarm chasing after Trevor and is presumably killed by them.

Curse

He appears in hall 3D of Curse (a reference to 360 Degree Duck). When the Curse Woman was suggested to talk to him, as he seemed to be the only other person in the hallway, he replies with the same "........." he gave Karkat in Sweet Jade and Hella John HD. It's not written in a usual Dialoguebox, but instead through a rather pixel-like speech balloon with a dark green background. The text itself is also colored appropriately. He is presumed to be killed when the Curse Women finally break free from the building and blow it up.


  • Funny Background Event:
    • Hecksing:
      • Before Alucard arrives and scares the Geese, you can see him in the hallway correcting tilted paintings. This is a reference to Team Fourstar's abridged series, and how Alucard is actually so unlike his personality there that he's basically an inversion.
      • In the flashback of Rip giving Carl her musket, Seras and Zorin are seen wrestling over space in the coffin. A minor note, but this also confirms that the flashback takes place after Integra shooed everyone away from her bed.
    • Housestuck:
  • Non-Standard Character Design: In the comics.
    • Sonic is represented by "Sanic" copy-pasted over, representing his increased levels of idiocy in the story. Everyone else not only is originally drawn (if though sloppy MS Paint), but are not copy-pasted.
    • Kamina actually looks a lot better than most other characters, and seems to be the only one with any effort actually put into drawing him.
    • An aversion is that this is the first time Death Mecha and Darkhorse have actual, full MS Paint-drawings and aren't images copy-pasted over. After SJAHJ did the latter, the difference is rather jarring.
  • Running Gag: After SJAHJ was more-or-less equal about this with Curse Woman's bars covering about as much as Bank Robber and Homer Simpson's, the comic tie-ins to these have blatant censorship discrimination played for laughs. Namely, unattractive ones like Kenny or (justifiably) underage characters like the boy who owned the Geno doll get very large boxes that cover a considerable amount of them, while characters that are either more attractive (Seras, Rip, the whole Rainbow Crew) or ones that you're supposed to find attractive but look weird (Carl) just have tiny little boxes that would just barely pass doing their job if this actually had anatomy rules to go by. This only goes for the front: Everything from the back in uncovered, so trying to take advantage of censorship to also hide as much of Kenny the Hacker's filthy-looking gut without making it look weird as possible is kind of negated by the fact that you see his fat, naked ass several times in Hecksing: The Dawn.

Aerith and Bob: The two hacking-themed villains are named Haxxor and... Kenny.

  • The Scrappy:
    • Roxy fell straight into this, because this incarnation of her suffers from Aesop Amnesia constantly (unlike anyone else from the Rainbow Crew, whose "lessons," as Stylistic Suck and silly as they were, at least stuck: Porrim stopped being a ditz stereotype after reading up, Cronus started acting better and even got better driving skills after feeling guilty of nearly failing to save Mituna from drowning, Kankri stops being such a hypocritical jerk from one sentence from Latula, etc) and pulls a Never My Fault whenever it seemed like she would learn something out of what happened. To the point where her own counterpart, guardian-variation (who is actually Rose's parent), and her own guardian all get development sooner than her despite not being introduced until around halfway through the story. It takes until her biggest, dumbest moment, unleashing a Hate Plague on the Crew (she was fairly convinced it was a love potion, so it wasn't as stupid as it sounded; still, the story makes it pretty clear that love potions are generally treated as a bad thing akin to mind-altering drugs) that she finally learns something. Sadly, that was after the timeline splits, meaning that once Housestuck: The Split rolls around, she might still be like her old self. And this development doesn't even happen until the fourth-to-last chapter of the story. Finally, and most importantly, her base personality is very creepy and unlikable, constantly making jokes about who will be dating who or if someone's aroused at being the only guy/girl in a group (and Everyone Is Bi in the Crew, so that doesn't even make sense).
    • Porrim and her counterpart Porsiv. The former started off as a bland, generic "dumb not-blonde" stereotype. Thankfully, chapter 13 has her suddenly taking a level in smartness... just to become a borderline author mouthpiece who has no real interesting traits by herself. Porsiv is inexplicably a New-Age Retro Hippie stereotype, which was a gag that ran on too long and would be more fitting for a counterpart like Gamzee's (who is instead like a flanderized canon-early-stoned-Gamzee).
    • Jade. She's hit hard with Unintentionally Unsympathetic, which would be bad even if she's not supposed to be the lead of the story (or at least, the more "morally correct" between her and John). Unlike most of the Rainbow Crew, she provides little to no actual comedic material or distinction and is hardly defined by anything other than being picked on in the past and her Single-Target Sexuality crush-arc with John (which came off as squicky and alienating despite the fact that neither of them are related biologically or adoptively in this universe — in fact, Jade was the last person of the "Housestucks" John met, not until late in middle school). Said past with John is very clumsily written, which might seem like something that fits up the alley of a fan fic shooting for So Bad, It's Good, but since it's at the point where the story is supposed to give itself more continuity it just feels inexcusable. Porrim may come off as preachy sometimes, but at least she had some actual distinction and interaction with the other characters that didn't really feel as akward as Jade's. (And Jade does not interact with other characters that often outside of John.) Nor does Porrim feel overtly smug. Probably reaches its peak in chapter 23 where Jade spends most of her subplot wangsting around while Tavros fights against a killer Jerk Jock and Nepeta, Karkta, Jude, Rose, and others all fend off against a Hate Plague apocalypse. It's almost insulting that her own counterpart, who is based on Jadesprite and even lacks the promise of any First Guardian or God Tier powers, is considered superior and more tollerable than her.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap:
    • Fan caught on to how much of a Bad Boss Rose is despite being one of the good guys, and had Rose turn around when Dave attacks her for hitting Jade in chapter 14. She still gives a lot of negative snarky comments, but never again does outright spiteful things like holding a gun up to Aranea for breaking a TV. Then, in chapter 18, she and her counterpart both resign from the rank of Rainbow Crew leader, bringing Dirk and his counterpart upfront instead, meaning that Rose doesn't even have the unfair power over the Crew anymore.
    • Housestuck: The Split. Actually, before that, with the Aranea's 8ackstory that tied HHC to HTS. Roxy actually learns a lesson very early on and it finally sticks, Porrim and Porsiv have a lot more distinction beyond being Simpsons-ian types, and Jade feels much more like another member of the Rainbow Crew instead of a poorly-written John-obsessed love interest that stuck out of the gang like a sore thumb.
    • Seras's callous and abusive behavior as well as Carl's perversions and jackassery (towards Seras and Rip only, though, he's still a sleaze around people he's less familiar with) are both toned down during the Hecksing-Rainbow Crew crossover of Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals.

Pretty sure this is a no but I'll plauge it anyway:
  • Narm Charm:
    • Isaac Unbounded in SBIGlets. For a fan fic author who plays Surprise Creepy and Anyone Can Die a lot, this goes out of its way to ensure Isaac from Binding of Isaac gets a happy ending and earns it. Yes, he basically had Ted Mosby as a father figure who gave him a ferari and magic ocarina, yes there's guns, yes Eve is a walking parody of Shadow the Hedgehog. But there's that part where Isaac of all people stops crying, and everyone else one-by-one gets rid of their tears as they finish off the sins.
    • The ending of chapters 25 and Grand Finale 26 of Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals. It's a fan fic that's been pretty badly spelt for around the first half, full of very unexpected and senseless crossover (including Xenomorphs), and crack pairings galore. Then... there's the graduation sequence in the former chapter, and the final party in the latter, which try to add a lot more emotion to the story unexpectedly and basically say "Yeah, this is over with now."
      • In the final AN, the author says that if for whatever reason he came up with HHC independantly, or didn't tie it to HUC's world, the graduation would have been the ending and there would be no Distant Finale. It would finish on an appropriate note of the Crew looking out into the open field after their graduation, realizing that with Scratch's downfall they are finally free. Which is oddly fitting for a story all about Screw Destiny and poking fun at Stations Of The Canon.

  • The Reactor causes the camera to serverly glitch up when it's nearby thanks to some vauge "electromagnetic interference," which would normally not be a problem if not for how this segment is supposed to be in a "found footage" style that uses the recording software as an In-Universe Camera. Normally, the Reactor itself is glitched to being incredibly hard to see, though it could be assumed that the core is just an ordinary green sphere. However, there is exactly one frame in one panel where a picture of its core is absolutely clear. You can see Joe's face in it. Joe from A Slash of Mortality. AKA the omnipotent Big Bad of that story who nearly tried to wipe humanity extinct just because they didn't follow his "story". Granted, he may have been a pushover to fight, but that was from the perspective of Eve and her group. The heroes of this story are far less competant.
    • And now Ted talked about seeing "the face of God" in that reactor. Cue checking back, analyzing the image, then seeing a clear-as-day picture of Joe's Anti-Spiral like face staring you down for exactly one frame.

Nah it kind of is a Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann ripoff. I mean some of these at the very least weren't by intention, like Teleport Matter/Spiral Energy and how Joe and Anti-Spiral have a lot more in common than I thought even before said concepts were introduced, but a lot of the storyline is.
  • It begins with the heroes at an unpleasant place with kind of a jackass leader. They leave near the beginning of the story.
  • Early on we're introduced to a major villain who at first seems to overpower the group's "Kamina." (Actually Eve might be more like the "Simon" but that's a completely different story.) There is a slight difference between Matrarx and Viral, though, in that Matrarx at the time of her introduction genuinely seems like the top threat.
  • Villain makes a surprise counter-attack during a second fight against them, and kills an inspiration figure. Hero goes in despair as a result.
  • New villains are introduced during one of the lead's despair moments, though here the Five Researchers are probably the most original of the four Arc Villains. Tone shifts from a vauge goal and fighting everything in the way to taking on a set number of opponents with weapons/fortresses even larger than before.
  • The tone/theme/feel/whatever of the Rossiu arcs and the ton of the Nia arcs are actually flipped, but are still very similar. The Five Researchers primarly takes place in more industrialized settings, is a little more deconstructive than the rest of the story, and even has the heroes getting arrested (though here it was blatant false data). And while arrested, they meet one of the main villains from the first arc and slowly start a team-up with them. Difference is that Matrarx does not become part of the hero group until near the very end and after Eve snaps out of her depression at Sarah's death.
  • The Researchers want to put the entire galaxy into stasis and hook them up to computers. Sounds a little like what the Anti-Spiral race did, except here they would be forcing it onto others.
  • Hero who was previously too grief-stricken to fight comes up with a realization, and even claims that the dead character will live on as part of them.
  • That's it for the Researchers, now moving on to the Guardians. They're a villain-band of elemental-themed enemies, much like the Four Generals. They also have both a "flagship"-type base and a more standard-sized enemy mecha.
  • Heroes hijack the first major base they see. One difference is that instead of destroying the rest, Team Eve hijacks the other seven flagships they come across and combine it with their own, eventually making a super-flagship that can plow through an army of the originals in no time flat.
  • The reviving method is new. Obviously, this and TTGL have very different viewpoints on bringing people back from the dead.
  • When the first four are defeated (that period probably being the most original part of the story since the encounters are rather unique), the wind, fire, earth, and water elementals remain and ambush the heroes at once. This didn't really happen in the TTGL anime but it is similar to the first movie's climax.
  • The base of the villains attacks the characters. Granted, the Citadel's attack is very different from Lordgenome's base and even more Death Star-ish, but it's still another point. It also has the ability to spawn several mecha.
  • The actual confrontation with the eight Guardians re-grouping and attacking at once is fairly new since it was handled differently than the movie ambush (it more-or-less had to since said ambush was already ripped off), so that leaves the fourth and final arc: The villain with near-infinite power. Going even further, and something I did not realize until after watching the whole anime and looking through its WMG section, is that there can be parallels drawn between evil gods and the Anti-Spiral. And Joe is a blatant evil god.
  • Joe is openly criticised for sheltering himself off from most of the outside world like a child. Simon says the same thing about AS.
  • Ten Plague copying is ironically rather original (going by Gurren Lagann. Though Joe ripping off the Bible was actually handled in a new way and it fits his character, so that can slide), what isn't is how the occasional mecha-related waves and the meteor storm/"Storm of Fire" are a lot like Mugann attacks.
  • The main villain is hiding out in a parallel universe. (Well, this is taked a little more literally, in that "universe" is defined as "as much crap as the universe as we knew it has," everything outside of that was an infinite black void like most of outerspace until Joe made a replica of the matter in the universe right next to the existing one. There is no actual dimension crossing) Worse is that unlike Anti-Spiral, Joe has no real reason to be doing this. He's just trying to toy around with the heroes and doing an incredibly bad job at it.
  • Mirrors/copies/angels may seem like a new concept Gurren didn't touch, but they bear striking resemblance to those realistic face-ships that ambush Team Dai-Gurren once they make it to the AS Dimension. Those did not openly sap Spiral Energy, but in both cases these are still dark-colored enemy mooks that ambush the heroes and provide partial reason for why they can't just teleport directly to AS/Joe's location even though they have the right technology for it.
  • Tree of Knowledge's anti Teleport Matter liquid = Sea of Dispair/Death Spiral Machine. Only difference is how the problem is solved.
  • Upon the main hero and final villain finally meeting face-to-face for direct confrontation, one of the sides proceeds to enter a series of Meta Mecha, ending it with a new one that is of an astronomical size. Meanwhile, the other party creates one of matching size right away. The only difference in this is that it's the villain who uses Meta Mecha, while the heroes are the ones with the counterpart almost made on the spot. Making it only one foot taller than the enemy's mecha even though they're each about the size of the universe just to piss him off is a good touch.
  • The Super Mario 64-esque swing was an unintentional one. It can be compared to "I HAVE THE GREATEST WIFE IN THE UNIVERSE SWIIING" even if that's not the intended reference.
  • Both side's weapons start getting broken apart as the match goes on, shrinking from astronimical scale to person-by-person.
  • Title drop.
  • Battle proper ends with a simple fist-fight, like in the second movie.
  • Main villain gives out last words when he knows he's screwed and mortally injured by his abstract standards.
  • Big Bad goes down in a very colorful explosion.
  • Hero loses something they had with them since near the beginning: Simon's goggles turn into the star-shades, which break. Eve's cape (even though she had many different capes over the course of it, they were only replacements to eachother and all meant the same thing) is transformed into the Crimson Blade, which Eve willingly blows up as a final guesture to the villain signifying that she completed everything she set out to do.
  • Speaking of which, and this is breaking the chronological order of ASOM for a bit, "Crimson Blade." "Gurren" means "Crimson," roughly.
  • Central protagonist in one aspect (or at least the one who dealt the finishing blow to the villain) goes on and lives a rather mundane life compared to the super moves he/she pulled throughout the story. Well, maybe not. ASOM has a sequel in planning that might bring Eve back to becoming a warrior instead of a fisherwoman who doesn't actually need a job anymore.

And general:
  • Eve = Kamina then became Simon-ish.
  • Sarah = Kamina if he was honest.
  • Mary = Rossiu towards the beginning before she just rolled with everything.
  • Rain = Simon, probably started off more akin to Nia though.
  • Opposite sex lead is a teacher. But that's really the only thing Adam and Yoko have in common. Like, at all.
  • Come on, Joe even looks like what would happen if Joeseph Gribble was drawn in the style of the damn Anti-Spiral.
  • Teleport Matter might be an unintentional ripoff of Spiral Energy. Both of them can allow for warping faster than light, they are self-replicating, can generate objects out of nothing, are often associated with green (in TM's case it's given a reason that it glows the color matching up to whatever Spring its user comes from, but about half of the main cast came from the green Genesis Spring), can probably both be used to revive people, and on top of that it's implied that Spring-DNA can be used to power TM just like evolution or something powers SE. Hell, this isn't even covering the issue of the strange life substance that usually keeps all Spring people immortal but can be disrupted, something could be drawn from that too.

That's the original plan and as it stands, which is why such heavy change consideration is in place. The similarity list is almost crushing in how long it is.

Each of the main Gems have an associated classical element, and all of the other ones introduced will fit under that as well

  • Garnet: Fire (She's the only one who can swim through lava, her course in "the Test," she takes Steven through a room full of fire and spikes in "Serious Steven")
  • Pearl: Water (Her room?)
  • Rose and Steven: Earth (Plant associations, Rose is a Friend to All Living Things and Steven, interacting with humans more often, is in a way a lot closer to earth the planet, )
  • And that leaves Amethyst: Wind. I really don't have anything for that.

  • As for the later Gems filling under one of them as well, Lapis Lazuli is obviously water. Peridot... no idea.


  • Growing the Beard/Surprisingly Improved Sequel: Plains was plagued with an uninteresting selection of characters who make it to the final five, a very slow updating rate, was filled with dialogue and otherwise boring parts, and in addition to that it repeated several flaws the canon Total Drama Action had (such as removing around half the cast and eliminating the popular characters that remained, but thankfully it avoids rampant Flanderization and even tries to go for a Jerk with a Heart of Gold/Defrosting Ice Queen personality for Courtney). The ending being rather predictable and anti-climactic does not help. Then the special comes and gives it much more of an adventerous atmosphere. And Island comes along and fixes most of these problems: The initial heroes of the first season (Beth, Courtney, and Izzy) are shilled far less and break out of their unlikable jerkass habits early in, while the eight canon male contestants of the first three seasons still don't make a return (it's still just Ezekiel, Justin, Geoff, and Harold) a large ensemble of original characters who at least don't feel like clumsy self-inserts or one-note gags are added to try to fill the void, the Big Bad doesn't feel like an Invincible Villain this time around and is overall more likeable than Eva, and the chapters were churned out faster on average.

  • Ending Fatigue: Just about the first 90% of the final chapter consists of the showdown with Joe. What makes this worse is that nearly all of the second-to-last and most of the third-to-last was about simply getting to his location.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The concept behind Joe brings several new ideas the story previously unexplored, covering themes such as how fiction can impact a person positively or negatively, and the consequences of an over-reliance on escapism. It also works as a nice medium/work around to "this whole story was all part of this imaginitive/post-apocalyptic/etc kid's imagination" while keeping the actual, as-present events of the story as happening (a story in his imagination is how Joe sees it, but since this is more akin to a god creating a universe, the others feel as though their adventures were more than just an Off the Rails of his script). Unfortunately, this only happens in the final three chapters, and the rest of the story just seemed like an Excuse Plot about fighting off these universe-controllers who previously had very little reason for hating technological progression aside from some very brief foreshadowing throughout.

    Most Mysterious's Characters 

While several of them have some basis to a canon, they are so vastly different from their original incarnations that they might as well be considered M.U.G.E.N. instead.

In General

  • Lethal Joke Character: For most of them looking like weird MS Paint creations, they sure pack a punch:
    • Dink spams projectiles and can easily push any enemy off to the side without a wide chance to fight back.
    • Dooby locks into fast combos, giving very little breathing room.
    • Fiunn has hard-hitting projectiles that fling enemies into the sky, attacks fast, and a teleport move that does auto-damage if it isn't blocked just in time.

  • Gravity Screw: He can completely flip the Earth around/reverse gravity, making his enemies fall into the sky and return with a lot of damage.
  • No Ending: He has an intro for arcade mode, but lacks a proper ending.
  • Teleport Spam: He can warp over to an enemy, disappear in a blur, and hit multiple times. The only downside to this moves is that Fiunn himself is damaged if this is blocked.

    Omega Tom Hanks 

"Hey, everybody! I'm invincible!"
—Arcade mode intro.

An intentional Game Breaker, this is a character resembling Tom Hank's head on a cartoon dressed in a suit. He is completely invincible, and attacks with both flying posters of films he starred in and insta-nuke Hooch bombs. (Which, oddly, make Yoshi sounds.)

(Yes, this character actually exists right now.)

  • Action Bomb: Hooch, an exploding dog.
  • Development Gag: He kills three abandoned work in progress projects that the maker had as one of his two intros.
  • Excuse Plot: He just flies around saying "HEY, EVERYBODY! I'M INVINCIBLE!" That the closest thing he gets to a storyline.
  • Foregone Conclusion: Normal fighters cannot kill him without the use of debug keys.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: When up against him. Mirror matches, or against characters like Rare Akuma (who are immune to his attacks yet still cannot damage him), are complete stalemates.
  • Game Breaker: Invoked. He's an April Fools' Day character intended to be so overpowered that he can't even be fought.
  • Lethal Joke Character: Definitely not the only invincible character in MUGEN, but one of the first and most well known.
  • One-Hit Kill: The Hooch Bomb attack is an instant kill, probably to cut a fight with an inevidable ending short.
  • Power Glows: He's constantly followed by a blue after-image trail. His powers are followed by purple{?}.
  • Widget Series: Widget Character. He's a celebrity actor made invincible and uses floating posters to attack, plus he has the power to fly and drop exploding insta-kill dogs on people. His arcade intro is simply him flying through the air shouting "HEY, EVERYBODY! I'M INVINCIBLE!"

    Kamina's Co-Worker Spartans/The 360 (Not MUGEN) 

  • All Love Is Unrequited: With them, only. Jenkins is heavily implied to have had a thing for Kamina, who in turn also liked Yoko but the latter died before(?) they could get together.
  • Ascended Extra: They have a much bigger role in Hecksing Hot Springs Special and Housestuck: The Split.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Chapter 6 of Hecksing: The Dawn and 22 of Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals, the former being their first appearance.
  • Development Gag: The names of the primary/secondary/tertiary 12 are the original surnames Fan had back in 360DD, before realizing that giving a very long-standing series of empires names of random origins would be a little weird and the hand waving would be too much.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Their debut was intended to be out after 360DD, so their first appearance was made one to aformentioned original story when things didn't quite work out. There, they have far less sexualized designs.
  • Fanservice Extra: They weren't that relevant to Dawn or Hurrcane Crconikals and didn't even appear at all in Ulumate Crconikals, and they're mostly just there for even more "fanservice." In case, you know, Seras, Rip, or the whole Rainbow Crew didn't provide enough. Downplayed in Hot Springs Special where the fanservice is a lot more legit, but they have a bigger role in the plot.
  • Stripperiffic: Averted when they're in the full-body Spartan armor and generally look exactly like Kamina/Master Chief, just with different colors. Played straight as their casual outfits — all 360 of them — are tiny thongs that are completely invisible from the back due to being floss-string thin. And no tops. But they spent more time so far either in full body armor or just helmetless than Kamina did. (Mostly because with Kamina, it was more of a reveal.)

    Bricks and Whatnots 

  • Brick Joke:
    • 5word claims that all the negative effects of the story could have been solved by more Links. 11word does just that. And the Links all nearly crush eachother to death because there are too many of them.
    • In Isaac Unbounded, a quote from Ted in a flashback is that "Good people make good buildings, badguys don't have foundations in their buildings because they don't have foundations in their hearts." Pride built his Evil Tower of Ominousness without a foundation, which results in his death.
    • Gurren Lagann is a Drunk has a literal one. It opens with Kamina throwing a brick, which also travels into a portal he opened that will "hit a destined enemy" of his. Five stories later, and in the end Alucard is hit by a brick flying out of a portal from nowhere.

  • Brick Joke:
    • In the prologue, Smuppetsprite claims that he refuses to act as a proper sprite in any way until after someone feels his(...?) butt. Much later, the Big Bad gets fed up with him and tries to slap him, but misses and accidentally slaps his ass. The sprite finally stops grinning, goes silent, and calmly floats over to Skaia, like he was supposed to about an in-universe month ago.
    • Also related to the same character: John notes in the prologue that, while going through Dave's house, Smuppetsprite infested it with puppets, and some of them even looked like the player group. Smuppetsprite would later have a fic-within-a-fic set up where the smuppetizations of the characters would go on adventures (a self-nod to many things the author has done, most notably Calliope's Back Story), then Hanksprite put his metaphorical foot down on it and this marked the beginning of their actual but very weird interactions beyond Smuppetsprite simply annoying an ignoring Hanksprite.
    • One of the first monsters of the week resulted from cross-contamination of a very dangerous and mutantious Alternian disease (long story) with the common cold Jane had. Somehow, this grew into a pair of eggs, one blue and one yellow. The yellow one rolls into a deep crack in the meteor while the blue one hatches into aformentioned Monster of the Week and is killed pretty quickly. Much later, in fact the final obstacle before returning to B2, a much larger, older yellow variation bursts through from the core and has to be fought off and killed as well. The majority of the story happens between these points, so unless you think Fan didn't outright forget it and/or know his blue/yellow duality theme it's very easy to forget this. Also serves as Book Ends to the meteor trip.
    • Inspired by a comment on the Sonic Boom playthrough of Game Grumps, very early into the story the characters discuss failed timelines that happened in the A1/A2/B2 jumps over. Damara mentions that one of her doomed offshoots got so sick of Gamzee that she flung him out into the Furthest Ring, and he probably hasn't been erased from existance and went around befriending any ghosts he drifted past. Towards the end of the story, just before the characters are about to enter the door, a very old-looking Gamzeenote  crashes into the platform and nearly kills John. Though there is one mention of this in-between, by implying: Meulin wonders if any living people around in the Ring by the time her Duplicate consumed everything would still be around floating like normal, and Rose re-assures that regular players not in any universe would be just fine, if the situation ever comes up.


  • Apparantly Fan thought it would be funny if Steven randomly tried fusing with a human, only to find that to his surprise it worked. Fan didn't actually even write that or mention it, but he was pleasantly surprised to see it canonically happen before I Thought Those Were the Ingredients.

  • Broken Aesop: Played for laughs/intentionally when a Show Within a Show has man taking out the villain of the week and then immediately giving an anti-gun aesop.

Answering questions about my own stuff

Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals
  • Why are the guardians so shocked at Carl only being into ladies when A: They already knew him for a day, and B: Jade has Single-Target Sexuality, so they already technically know someone who is monosexual?
    • All it said about the guardians as a whole was that they all looked at eachother aside from Dean (which makes sense since he's the Only Sane Man and Jade's father). And Beth, since she wasn't there. Dale was an idiot who had another one of his conspiracies, Lily might have genuinely not really cared/never asked considering her personality and lack of interactions with Jade, Vlie and Burt were probably trolls waiting to see Dale's reaction (and the comic tie-in supports this: they both look at him), Harl is also an idiot, and Kate probably knew Harl and Dale's reactions and was bracing for what they had to say.
  • How do Beth, Disciple/Aurink, etc get re-dressed after entering water?
    • They don't. (And the comic confirms this.) Considering their personalities, it makes sense that they out of everyone wouldn't mind wardrobe malfunctions as much. The same question can actually be applies to a lot of the Crew, since water could easily screw up their costumes (Mindfang/Bezedu, for one). Then again it was implied that Beth kept a spray can of whipped cream at all times...
  • Why is Jade generally portrayed as a chickification parody yet also associated with militant-elements? (Her RC outfit.) Seems to be contradiction of the fake-author's own stupidity.
  • Wouldn't the Sisters be giving a very bad image of themselves if they go around attacking Porrim unprovoked? Especially right in public by a large crowd, in chapter 13? And trashing up a library? Unlike the other villains, they are basically supposed to be an extremist, negative political group, so they should think that negative attention is exactly what they would want to avoid.
    • They're not so aimed on persuading opinion change as they are forcing by fright. So they are being effective in their eyes. Going after Porrim, a powerful regenerative vampire (until her death and revival in chapter 18 took that all away) isn't saying "We're all a bunch of nutjobs," it's more like "OBEY US OR WE'LL HUNT YOU DOWN TOO!" Because they do come off as jerks like that. Sort of like Icesky.
  • Why didn't any of the other Xenomorphs tell John, Jade, and the Sisters that they were being hijacked by one of the two brothers?
    • They were all afraid that the jerkass one would kill them all. They were still hostages, after all.
  • Trolls and Martians look very humanoid. Xenomorphs and zergizocks do not and actually resemble eachother. Humans, Martians, and xenomorphs are from the Milky Way Galaxy. Trolls and zergizocks are from the Andromeda Galaxy. There is no appearance consistency.
    • Sentient life can either evolve in one of two ways, or limited. Basically, looking sort of like Xenomorphs or looking sort of like humans.
  • If vampires are derived from jadebloods/rainbow drinkers, why are they weak to things declared "holy," and at that objects that are powered differently depending on the religion used?
    • It was never said that rainbow drinkers were just "people but with increased form and powers and little actual supernatural stuff like an inability to see reflections" like how "vampirism" works in a lot of this guy's other stories. They are probably weak to holy objects too. Throw a Bible at Kanaya or Porrim (pre-chapter 18, anyway) and it would probably hurt them like hell.
  • For that matter, why are there even multiple religions in Crconikals since knowledge of the afterlife is common place? Brian Griffin can be excused for being a Flat Earth Atheist since it's a nod to how he didn't believe in God in a world where He can be found picking up women in bars, but just about nobody else really has reason to think that it works any different from how it is, unless it's all based on possible higher powers than the afterlife.
    • Denial or issues about if there is something higher than whatever rules the afterlives. Which still has not actually been elaborated on.
  • Why are "live" vampires unable to see ghosts outside of the afterlives but unpowered humans can? Shouldn't it be the other way around?
    • That's the joke. Also a parody of Rule of Drama, since it was introduced by Pip saying that Seras cannot see him, thus keeping the two apart even more in favor for Carl/Seras.
  • So Kurloz gets hit in the ass with a dead porcupine for indirectly making the Pikmin rage out (not even knowing that he put Jake's well being in danger — maybe), but Vriska gets off with nothing for killing Tavros? Eridan was outright possessed (well, now anyway) and Gamzee had a brain-hit that screwed hit personalities back up, but Vriska has no excuse. And Pavlig throwing her into a house after hearing about it doesn't count, since the whole Crew apparantly didn't care for it.
    • Terezi killing her was considered good enough. Tavros must have a similar Easily Forgiven atittude Jake has in Crconikals. In fact this was openly addressed just to shoot down any "because they're Pages" ideas.
  • If Roxy wanted to out-do the other Crew members in outfit absurdity, why didn't she just... pick something else after the presentation?
    • It might be because she doesn't really have anything weirder, and doesn't have much effort to get it. Also, this version of Roxy is an idiot.
  • It was implied that the Zodiacs did everything by seperation (Tavros and Terezi being the only two by the Felt Apartment when the "Housestucks" fell out, Karkat's comments about Nepeta's mission), as did the Alphas (Damara being the only one to stop scratch), when the Rainbow Crew just about does everything in groups or splits them to different squads. Why the sudden change?
    • Pre-end of chapter 18: Rose is a pretty mean ruler. Post: Dirk is a traditionalist, and he considered the Housestuck/Rose-era Rainbow Crew to be "tradition" and not either troll gang even though they're both implied to be along longer.
  • If all of the Zodiacs live in Chicago, then why the hell do they go to the Grand Canyon for their meetings?
    • Seasons 1-3 answer: That's the joke. Seasons 4-7 answer: Like the other more unexplained aspects, this was explained by retcon. The Zodiacs usually use holograms, but if they suspect that Doc Scratch is trying to hunt for them, they "disappear" so to speak into the Canyon in person. Tavros and Terezi's actual mission when the Housestucks encountered them was to check around and see if the coast was clear. As was Kanaya's, but her date with Edward distracted her.
  • Why the hell would Kanaya — or anyone, for that matter — fall for Edward Cullen? Even if she didn't know about his creepy parts, and even ignoring the elephant in the room about this (well, one of them, at least), Edward here talks in a very bored, pausing monotone. Plus, she has eleven available dates since the Zodiacs all appear to be very chummy with eachother, and even get into a twelve-way relationship in chapter 12. Plus whoever else is dating who.
  • How did Scratch turn the Felt Apartment into the Felt Tower (either variation, before or after the Six Barriers) when he's an idiot pothead, and most of the rest of the Felt seem a bit dumb too? For that matter, how did Scratch even keep Damara held at his house for three years when the guy himself can barely put on a disguise to get pot?

naruto the guy with the ninja
  • It's been implied that some characters share the same origins as they did in Crconikals, and confirmed for virtually all of Hank's "rival gang" (if they did appear in Crconikals, that is, but either way their country of origins have been confirmed). Because of this, there's just a lot of general confusion. Alucard is ultimately a (hoo boy... Sdrawkcab Name of Dracula, title of Vlad III Tepes, Vlad =...) Slavic name, yet he was raised in America and by a family implied to be German or Austrian considering... his Bro. Kamina is from Greece, born and raised there with a Greek family (yes it's an enlongated Halo-Spartan vs real Sparta nod to his previous role as the Master Chief from HUC), yet has a name derived from Japanese (Kami = "above"). Brenda's name possibly comes from Old Norse yet she's been in Japan all her life, considering how the five lands are part of Japan in this.
    • According to Muppets Most Wanted, "Badguy" is French. Then again, Alucard/Bro's surname is pronounded "Bad guy," while Domonic says it's "Bad-Gee." Also, the surname sharing is a coincidence, as MMW was not out by the time HUC was written.
    • naruto the guy with the ninja takes place some time between the present day and Futurama's day. That might qualify as an answer alone, since Futurama is supposedly "canon" in it even though it exists as a show. But it raises a lot of other questions, such as:
  • Naruto put the Leaf Village under a major imprisoning spell, and endangered the Land of Fire. Problem with this, because of Naruto's world being made into a small speck of "our" world (EG all together they're just around one continent more-or-less, and other major countries like Russia or the United States or India still exist around but probably geographically shifted)
  • This takes place between our world and Futurama's time. (Pinned down to 1496, to be specific.) Ignoring that plate shifting isn't that fast, this story's world has been re-arranged. Futurama's has not.
    • Let's just say 2199: Major Ten Tails-attack or something completely screwed up the Earth. ~2800: Very powerful charka use(s) decide(s) Status Quo Is God and reverts the Earth's landmasses to structures more "familiar" through history.
  • If this was written by the same alter ego who did Crconikals, seeing all the very deep in-jokes that can't possibly have "because Pikmin Fan" as the in-universe explanation, why the sudden inconsistency with the capitalization? Why is this the only installment with all lowercase letters, especially seeing as the story proper has nearly zero problems with capitalization?
    • It still doesn't have to be. Let's say that the "world" these alter egoes take place in, they find eachother's ideas off the web and think "Hey, this seems like something I'd want to take from." Boom.

Isaac and co. are also Kreugers/Striders/Ikanames when it comes to unifying worlds

Not based on Isaac himself, but his allies from the Isaac Unbounded SBIGlet. Piece them together — or hell, just use Eve by herself — and there's enough similarities that was good enough to draw some ties. Judas covers most of them being betrayers or Face-Heel Turning (Kathy to Ezekiel, Dave and Dirk to everyone in SJAHJ, Carrie to everyone in GVS, etc) and uses the Crying Blood/ general Bloody Murder trope, Samson has the "broken strength," Eden is confirmed to bear a hair style that is similar to Carrie's old hair, Lazarus has red hair (Jib, Emo-Dave, Kathy), and Eve has multiples of these.
  • None of them so far really liked guns though, while Isaac and co. are gun crazy.

  • Joke Character:
    • "Silver." He/she (as with most player characters, you can pick male or female variants) is implied to be a street performer who paints themselves as a robot and acts as one. However, Silver also acts like the NES Silder Surfer. S/he dies in one hit, and can die from touching the walls when in dungeons.

  • Critical Research Failure: [invoked, intentional, blah blah blah.]

Wings Of Vi (This time I'm actually not planning on starting the page, I just wanna check if the page is made. I'm still thinking of something with Air Control though.) This was made by the same guy who did an I Wanna Be the Guy fangame I Wanna Be The Boshy? Hang on, um... it's apparantly Nintendo Hard (sure looks like it even from the start), and the main character's a Walking Swimsuit Scene. (Or looks like one.) That's a trope-related start. EDIT: As you can tell from the navy-blue coloring, this was created now! My work for that exact work page is done.

  • Convection Schmonvection: This isn't actually in the game (at least to my knowledge: You can never really be sure what the hell isn't in the glory that is Air Control) I just want this right now for a quick reference on how to spell the title until I memorize it.

  • Mind Screw: Uppercut, a character who, on the surface, only attacks with uppercut moves. Sounds simple? Yeah, well, its standing sprite flickers between several variaints of Ryu, it changes its appearance a lot, and every time it connects an attack you hear the YEAAAAAH! meme from CSI: Miami.

    Lots of Bosses, few Enemies (YKTTW? I don't know exactly how to define this though) 

This doesn't count things that aren't, I don't know, "living" obstacles? Like Spikes Of Doom don't count.

  • I Wanna Be the Guy has enough bosses to make a rush out of it, but only a select, rare number of enemies that can actually be killed. It does, however, feature a number of obstacles that seem to defy physics to try to kill you.
  • Conkers Bad Fur Day has just about a boss every chapter, but until the last few levels there isn't really much that could be considered basic mooks. Conker's upgrading from a Frying Pan of Doom to guns during those portions of the game probably helps, since a much better, long-range weapon would allow for more combat. The remake tried to avoid this by adding defeatable wood-wearing imps along with strange possessed dolls in varrying points of the game.

  • Pikmin 3 removes the threat of falling enemies, but it has one element that may or may not be a glitch. While fighting the final boss, looking at the Kop-Pad reveals a second circle used to represent a boss far out of bounds. Is there something equally as unsettling as the Plasm Wraith out there? Is it the true true form of the Plasm Wraith, and everything you were against to that point was another illusion along with the enemies found in the area before?
  • [Gotta work this in somehow, on some page.] At the end of the first day of the third game, Alph hears something odd (like a distorted stomach growl) that alerts him about the sunset. It's used in-game to tell you about the day's time limit, but consider that nothing in the game you encounter makes a sound like that. Are there other, unseen predators lurking around, and the familiar enemies seen during the takeoff are just what awakes at the beginning of the night?
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: In battle, the Bros. have a cannon-like item that shoots them pretty high into the air. On the overworld, there are a number of high jumps that require a move called the Ball Jump to get over, not introduced until long after getting the cannon. Why Mario and Luigi cannot simply, say, aim the cannon over by the entrance of Somnom Woods might have to do with how the plot simply needs them away from that location for now, especially as they cannot progress any further in anyway until the plot requires them to.

  • Sonic the Hedgehog: Omochao Edition is a Take That at annoying exposition guides as well as encouraging a low-score challenge. It does this by having Omochao follow Sonic around and point out every individual ring he touches, badnik he destroys, monitor he breaks, or even spring he uses. Each time, the game (save for the clock — its ticking up to ten minutes is the punishment for doing all the things that triggger Omochao) pauses while a one-up jingle plays. Said jingle gets longer every following Omochao interruption. It sounds infuriating, but his annoyance is so blown out of proportion that it's hilarious.
