    In General 

    Rust 

0 Rust Nepeta Leijon 0

A hiveless wanderer that always dresses in heavy winter outfits, carries a sword around, and likes to draw potential manga on her spare time. Completely unknowing to her, said manga is usually prophetic of the human's session, particularly Dave's Speaking of the Strider, she's his patron troll. Her trolltag is acetoneAlleycat. Her associated 360 member is Red/360, and her corresponding "One number" is 0 at first, but later becomes 10.

:0 < types in quick sentences and replaces the letter "O" with a zer0!
:0 < like all 0nes she prefaces her lines with a lusus-like face, in this case her usually sh0cked telepathcat
:0 < 対話は日本語で書かれています。note 
:10 < after chapter f0ur she adds a "1" in fr0nt 0f the lusus face t0 represent her scar and will n0w change any "I" 0r "L" t0 a 1 if its near a O/0
:10 < this even g0es f0r w0rds separated by spaces eg "wel1 0bserved"
:10 < after the time skip her sp0ken dia10gue is in english

  • Intelligible Unintelligible: In-person and before the three year skip, all of what she says is technically in a "thick east Alternian accent" that, like Damara, is portrayed as being written in Japanese. But that can be Google translated — when she has the scarf off. With it on, she basically sounds like Kenny and everything is written as an untranslatable "mph hmmph fhmm"-like text. All the other Ones, except Fuchsia at first but including Olive and Lime (who haven't known her that long) understand her perfectly.
  • Meaningful Name: "Alleycat" should be obvious. "Acetone" is a highly flammable liquid, which makes sense since she's technically associated with fire twice if not three times over (her associated 360 member, and both the Aires and Leo signs have the fire element).
  • Red Herring: She has nothing to do with the Teen doll despite dressing very similarly.
  • Shout-Out: According to concept art, her pre-time skip outfit is a dark red palette swap of Ezekiel's, just minus the toque and plus a really thick scarf. (Apparantly it's "highly symbolic" that Olive is the only One normally with a hat.) She swaps it out for a generic snow suit after though.

    Bronze 

1 Bronze Nepeta Leijon 1

    Gold 

2 Gold Nepeta Leijon 2

    Lime 

5 Lime Nepeta Leijon 5

  • Berserk Button:
    • Do not try to mess with her strange orbs. She doesn't know what they're supposed to do, just that if you put a One's DNA in one of them, it will glow the color of their tied 360 member. And all Ones near them somehow know which one gets what DNA. But it's Lime's opinion that they are very important, and you do not mess with them or try to destroy them. Oh, and she has incredibly strong psychic powers and the ability to teleport stuff around as long as it doesn't involve Eldritch Locations. Don't piss her off.
    • Downplayed, but for some reason her mood is really soured whenever talking to or around Meenah. She even refers to her as a "monster" behind her back. This has yet to be explained, and said spoiled character is the only one that enlicts this reaction from Lime.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Her introduction seems to establish her as just being very hyper and playful, along with trolling around with their session's Jack. A flashback reveals that she also likes to screw around with other's heads, has sadistic tendancies, and overall acts fairly rude.
  • Cassandra Truth: In chapter 5, she tells Dave "Oh, I'm just waiting for the day you kill your best friend." Turns out this really does happen near the end. Sort of, as it was his body possessed by the Big Bad, and John was already long since dead at that point.
  • Expy: Fan says that, at some point when first writing chapter 3, he got the idea to design her character as "a toned down Bill Cipher that genuinely cares about some friends but at the same time uses them as playthings." The signs are there: She's the most dream-based of everyone (down to breaking the rule of Space players waking up first by having her dreamself be the only one active before Nepetasprite put them in the Safe Chest), spouting conspiracies, and freaking people out. This may be a nod/foreshadow to Housestuck: The Split, where's it's revealed that an alternate version of Nepeta (several of them, actually) do each merge with a Hank and dark magic or something and they make a dream projection to other multiverses in the form of Bill.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: The last of the twelve Ones introduced, yet she's vastly different from the rest of them. First, her life is comparatively more sheltered — even Olive spoke to the other Ones as Karkat, while Lime pretty much only befriended Olive. Her blood caste is not shared by any Homestuck canon color, and it isn't even known as to why she's limeblooded in the first place and not a mutant.
  • Villain Teleportation: Downplayed. As long as the Furthest Ring or anything in Hemrit's domain aren't involved, she can teleport herself, people, and objects freely. But she's easily the most morally ambiguous of the Ones

    Olive 

3 Olive Nepeta Leijon 3

  • Red Herring: The first one and a half chapters try to trick the reader into thinking that Karkat really is among the Nepetas, and that the "mystery player" is simply Olive herself, as she has been confirmed to exist near the end when she's seen tagging along with Dave. The real situation is a lot more complicated than that.

    Jade 

7 Jade Nepeta Leijon 7

    Teal 

6 Teal Nepeta Leijon 6

Strangely, even though Fan has shown to be aware of Terezi's associated number being seven and Kanaya's being six, the Nepetas of their respective caste are swapped. But this was supposedly so that Fan could give a "616"-theme to the one that's tied to leetspeak.

    Cobalt 

8 Cobalt Nepeta Leijon 8

    Indigo 

% Indigo Nepeta Leijon %

240/Blue, and her corresponding "One number" is eventually confirmed to be 11 (after having an ambiguous, odd note with her "mouth" represented as a percent sign).

    Purple 

4 Purple Nepeta Leijon 4

    Violet 

9 Violet Nepeta Leijon 9

    Fuchsia 

I Fuchsia Nepeta Leijon I

  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Rust flies up a staircase she's been spending minutes on climbing? Fury of anger. Lime walks around naked? Fury of anger (see Hypocritical Humor below). Jade the human doesn't like being called Salty so that the Ones can distinguish her from Jade the Nepeta? Fury of anger.
  • Jerkass: Certainly one of the less pleasant Ones of the twelve. She enjoys tries to pull the other swaps around and virtually everything pisses her off. Plus she's incredibly unfriendly with most of the humans.

Antagonists

    Hemrit (Warning: All Spoilers Unmarked) 

Initially teased at in chapter 3 from a few name drops,

  • Disproportionate Retribution: So your lover was reincarnated across the second scratch as A3 Muelin and A4 Disciple, and has no ghosts in the dream bubbles. Does this sound like the perfect reason to alter the laws of reality and summon a number of kaiju to try to destroy everything?
  • Expy:
    • Take your average Yandere, give him the Anti-Spiral's abilities, and a hint of Sylar's powers too. That's Hemrit in a nutshell personality-wise. With emphasis on the Anti-Spiral.
    • He filled in for the reason why the troll session we see, which is actually A4 and not A2 as lead to believe, couldn't finish. As Bec Noir did. Unlike Noir, he's a lot better at hunting down players, though he normally doesn't resort to blowing up planets.
    • He's apparantly Fan's answer to Lord English, supposing to address criticisms Fan had with how he was handled as a villain.
  • Good Colors, Evil Colors: As with Great Pikmin Fan's usual "new" antagonists, he's associated with a "sickly" yellow-orange color, the web color gold. Fan usually uses this to signify villains but at times he likes changing it up.
  • Reality Warper: He takes it a step above most reality warpers in that he can even change exactly what constitutes reality. He could chose to alter virtually anything, like how timelines would work, what physics would allow, physical constants across Paradox Space, etc. He's all-but completely omnipotent.
  • Tron Lines: Loads of yellow-orange lines glow across him.
  • Walking Spoiler: Not hinted at existing in the first two chapters. Later he's tied behind some cryptic stuff. And this isn't even getting into the fact that he has the souls of two heroes locked up and controlled by Kurloz, who is the main spirit manipulating the body.

    Spoiler Character (Chapters 5 Onward) 

Corrupted Ones/Nepetas: General Tropes

Nepetas created by Hemrit himself, but plagued with a "corruption" that turns them into giant kaiju under extreme circumstances. Lime somehow knows how to cure them and revert them to normal, also getting rid of the corruption.

White Nepeta Leijon/Nepetazilla

The first of the Nepeta swaps that doesn't correspond to any usual blood color. She's found by the gang near the end of chapter 5, where she soon transforms into a Godzilla lookalike. Lime quickly manages to cure her, and she stays with the group in the background.

run:gifocalypse is will be a fairly bizarre Gravity Falls fan fiction by Great Pikmin Fan.

  • Almighty Janitor: The original .GIFfany herself, seeing as all other "bosses" are professors (that look like palette swaps of her) yet she's, in game, still classed as a student.
  • Brick Joke:
    • In the penultimate chapter, after capturing Professor Dove, Dipper says that if he sees one more "pair of anime girl underwear," he's going to throw up. This does happen in the ending when the original .GIFfany climbs over the twins to escape her computer screen. .GIFfany doesn't seem to notice.
  • Downer Ending: The Pines (and probably other characters — all we know is that Soos is a projection since we see his real world self in the twist ending) are trapped in a computer screen with only a possible chance of getting out that involves a deal with a demon. While the .GIFfanys did not destroy the world, they can in fact leave the computer and it's implied they will do the same with the real world. Soos was effectively brainwashed. In Gumball Vs Satan, it's implied that the .GIFfany army does destroy the world for real shortly after this story's events, and Cheaper Edd sees this and potential in them — potential to hire them to his gang. Hell, one of Cheaper Edd's victories in MUGEN involves an army of her flooding into the world — they're probably going to destroy that one too, especially seeing as Cheaper Edd himself teleports away when this happens.
  • Deconstruction: Of Trapped in TV Land.
  • Everybody Knew Already: When it's revealed that the original .GIFfany is the real Big Bad and that glitchy-staticy-girl from the beginning, Mabel is the only character that's actually surprised. And that's because she thought the "twists" would be too predictable.
  • Expy:
    • Fan notes that Dove is a shameless Gimme ripoff. They're both the respective Dragons, have a gray-and-black-themed color scheme, and the area they're fought in is a broken-up cluster of various past locations, hit under some kind of powerful laser.
    • Professors Burnda and Burrda make up a pair of fire/ice themed sisters that can fuse (into Blenda) and are weak to the other's extreme temperatures. In other words, Koume and Kotake/Twinrova.
  • Foreshadowing: The Reveal didn't really come out of nowhere.
    • Dipper explicitly points one out in the final chapter: Running around different "themed" areas, each with a boss and some Plot Coupon to protect that's useless and plot-irrelevant by itself, sure does seem a lot like something out of a video game, doesn't it?
    • When Mabel summons Bill, he mentions that the reason why the world isn't in grayscale as it usually is when he's around (AKA in the Mindscape) is something she really doesn't want to know. It's not a regular world per-say, she's contacting him within a game's world.
    • Right after the twins are knocked out, there's a few lines of pseudo-code. This is easily forgettable and could just be seen as how .GIFfany usually sees things, but the twist ending implies that this is the army coding the VR game for the twins.
  • From Bad to Worse: The premise. Thought one dating sim monster was bad enough? Try over a billion. But thankfully they're limited on screen appearances. Except now they can leave their computers and walk physically. At least they can only posess electronics... and objects... and living beings.
  • Ironic Name: Professor Dove is easily the most hostile of the professors, and her own catchphrase is that she doesn't fuck around. Her Establishing Character Moment is ripping out the entire western hemisphere down to the mantle. Doves are seen as symbols of peace.
  • Knight of Cerebus:
    • Just about the only thing played for laughs about Professor Dove is how over the top she is. And her relatively foul mouth. Her introduction is when the fic stops being a Monster of the Week romp and gets into more disturbing implications.
  • Mandatory Twist Ending: As Fan is becoming known for. The .GIFfany army didn't destroy the world. That was just a video game — that the Pines family (and possibly other characters) were trapped in, they've somehow brainwashed/abused Soos into doing what they want, and the ending stongly implies that they'll make what happened in the game into a reality. From there the timeline possibly splits (the story ends without really showing much of the "REAL real world," Carrie in Gumball Vs Satan confirms that in one timeline Cheaper Edd found the army and hired them as part of his brigade.
  • Meganekko: All of the professors have huge, round glasses.
  • Mythology Gag: Hoo boy.
    • Most of the professors are named after various relatives Dave/Carrie/Ed (and yes, those three in particular are part of the same family tree... sort of) are revealed to have in the SBIG series, or puns of the names. The first twelve/thirteen are also based on the main twelve members of Fan's recurring 360 characters (Burrda is based on Icesky though, normally the main enemy to all of them), if only really by elemental ties (and even then, some things change around, like the "Cyan" one being food themed more than soap themed).
  • Oh Crap!: This is Dipper's reaction to virtually any new development. To wit:
  • Production Foreshadowing: The entire fic was mentioned in brief by Carrie in Gumball Vs Satan, in rhyme form. It also mentions that after its end, Cheaper Edd recruits the .GIFfanys for his own battles.
  • Punny Name: Most of the professors, though Dove has an Ironic Name. Most of the names are actually based on Fan's running gag of having various characters turn out to be related to, ultimately, Dave Strider is in intentionally poorly written crossover crack fics.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: Two major plot elements are rendered pointless.
    • The Pines twins battling the Professors and getting their Shards of Heart. Turns out that the Shards might just mean jack squat. Dove, The Dragon, breaks up the hemisphere and pretty much dooms planet Earth in a few mere in-story minutes after her appearance.
    • While it may initially seem like a good thing that Dipper, Mabel, Stan, Ford, and possibly others were just trapped in a video game and .GIFfany didn't invade and destroy the world with an army of her, it's heavily implied that this will happen in the real world anyway.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Twice, a .GIFfany clone breaks a TV with an episode of Futurama playing. Respectively, these are the episode about live being like a video game and about the Lucy Liu-bots. (The latter the clone appeared to take extreme offense at, for a reason obvious to anyone familiar with the episode.)
  • Take That:
  • That's No Moon!: When reaching the Volcanic Base, Dipper and Mabel first think that the floating thing under the ice is Burnda's reflection (with different-colored hair for some reason, white instead of red). Then they notice that they don't have reflections. Turns out that's not reflective ice, but a clear sheet. Burrda is just mirroring Burnda's movements perfectly.
  • Wham Episode:
    • In chapter 2, the twins encounter their first Professor. Rose. It seems like a normal battle until she jumps into a tree. A non-electronic tree. And turns it into a carnivorous plant.
    • The penultimate chapter. These two lines sum it up:
      Professor Dove: Within seconds, your entire continent will be the latest victim to my Gravititan Technique.
      Dipper: You'll— wait, did you say seconds?

  • Most of the major threats are "Professors." This game from Fan reading about ''Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon" and mis-reading the "Possessor" bosses as "Professor."

    CE 

Story/General Tropes

In-game

  • Damage-Sponge Boss: Having slightly buffed defense and 1,500 life instead of the default 1,000, he takes a number of hits.
  • Final Boss: Intended to be the final boss of any GPF-themed campaign. Most of his other characters have their arcade endings begin with that character standing over a defeated Cheaper Edd, complete with his shades being knocked to the floor.

    TM 

Story/General Tropes

  • Confusion Fu: Attacks include throwing asses (or whole Felicias), turning into an invincible, giant Charlie Sheen head, and doing a bow that for some reason summons a single spinning slot that has eight different possibilities.

In-game

  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: Use his roulette, and look at the results. For a split second, .GIFfany appears though the roulette will never land on her. It's confirmed that Cheaper Edd is using .GIFfany to spy on Template Man for the whole fight.

    T 

Story/General Tropes

  • Badass Normal: Template Man has the Mark of Template. Hank, Brenda, and Sheldon are usually this but some incarnations have Sage or God Tier powers. Other characters are obviously inhuman with abilities to match. This guy, however, is "just" a graffiti artist that made the tag tools as his own invention. And he knows how to call Omega Hanks, though they're not on friendly terms.

In-game

    RP 

    HRH 

Story/General Tropes

  • Fighting Clown: Attacks include sending his lawn mower after the enemy, kicking a bag of charcoal that spontaneously appears, and running away from a nude Nancy. These aren't just in-game hypers for the sake of making Hank more than a physical fighter — they also show up in this fan fic tie-in.

In-game

  • Mighty Glacier: He's the slowest character Fan coded that can actually move. But also one of the sturdiest.
  • Stone Wall: His attack is meh but his defense and life more than make up for it.

    BK/MK 

Story/General Tropes

  • Flanderization:
    • Let's say that Fan went a bit overboard with the fact that her outfit is canonically blue and yellow (and white. Can't forget white). Most of her derivatives even play up the blue/yellow a lot more.
  • Unexpected Character: Even by MUGEN standards. She comes from a really obscure show (Fan says that he even once used her to stump 'Akinator — that says a lot). Though if you're familiar with Fan's fan fiction, this might not come off as that much of a surprise.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Pink. If her eyebrows are any indication, it's dyed.

In-game

Gameplay

"Teen Titans Go" is a fairly bizarre character, and attacks in equally bizarre ways. Instead of running, it turns into a picture of Homer Simpson falling that does a short foreward hop on the stage. Trying to

  • Canon Welding: Chapter 4 of Gumball Vs Satan confirms a few things:
    • Kids Fit the Trolls takes place in the same universe as The Eds' EDventure and Zombie Attack!, just decades in the future (Kids Fit: 2012, EENE pair: 1970).
    • In one timeline of run:gifocalypse, Cheaper Edd from GPF's MUGEN continuity sees the .GIFfany army's destruction of the world, finds it impressive, and hires them. Turns out that this is the specific "AU" that .GIFfany came from.


First, thank you both for answering.

I assume that both of you are referring to the part of Sinkhole entitled Changing the display text of a trope in a list, right?

If I'm reading it correctly it only bans changing the apparent name of the trope via a Pot Hole. The example given is pot holing Sealed Evil in a Can to Frozen Evil In A Lake, because it "...messes up alphabetization (does that example go under S or F?), makes it harder to find tropes, causes confusion over what the trope's actual name is..."

I agree that doing that is completely illegal. However, unless I'm reading it wrong it does not appear to ban Pot Holing a trope's name under all circumstances, just when you change the name that's displayed.

What I'm asking can't have any of the negative consequences mentioned because the trope name is not changed at all. It just sends the troper clicking on it directly to the trope sub-page where the example is so they don't have to click on the sub-page link when they get there.

In other words, based on how the rule is written I don't think it was intended to ban what I'm suggesting. I suspect that it was interpreted as an absolute ban because no one considered the possibility of using a Pot Hole that didn't change the trope's name.

I would appreciate the guidance of any moderators reading this.
