Zeldas Honor
  • Ambiguously Human:
    • Ezekiel at this point. He retains his already strange canonical "abilities" of being able to vanish quickly, have his eyes glow red, cling on the underside of a jet in the middle of a storm, and survive falling into lava, but he now has these weird regenetive skills and appears to be all-but unkillable. And he bleeds green in at least the Zeksmit series (whereas in World Tour Rewrite or Race, he's never shed blood, interestingly enough). Even in TZ, which has its Elemental Powers system that makes for some pretty different-looking humans, they all still bleed red.
    • Usually in his Homestuck-centric works (and some crossovers, while others do give them normal skin tones), the human characters are given skin and hair the same color-tones as their text. Technicolor people are also common there in general. They're still apparantly normal humans otherwise though, and/but a few comments imply that it's not just for stylistic reasons and instead that humanity really has several additional technicolor races.
    • The 360 in 360 Crconikals are supposedly human, but not only are they technicolor as with the Homestuck characters, but they have additional horns, tails, and wings. Carl from the same universe is a Martian and those are considered to unmistakenly not be the same species as humans, even though the only external difference (and nothing's given about internal, though that might be the same too) is the green skin and antenne. In other words, Crconikals-Jake English barely looks more human than him, Crconikals-Green looks less, yet neither are aliens.
  • Catapult Nightmare:
    • Done by Nepeta in one short after dreaming about Ezekiel and Karkat bonding over their unusual blood colors, then almost making out. For context, Ezekiel pisses off Nepeta... just as much as he pisses off everyone, frankly.
    • Total Drama World Tour Rewrite proper has Harold waking up from a bad nightmare that, near the end, involves Ezekiel trying to bathe with him. That guy seems to be a magnet for this in the pseudo-series.
  • Faux Symbolism: A lot of the "religious" references in Sweet Jade and Hella John HD, such as the Red and Red Team each representing the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, have been confirmed by Word of God to be nonsense just added for the sake of giving the band a "theme" of sorts.
  • Hidden in Plain Sight:
    • Get Dressed: The Game (Webcomic)! clearly shows the final Big Bad of A Slash of Mortality before aformentioned story gave anything more than the slightest cryptic hints at his existance. You know that weird exposition guy who tells you about how the "game" plays? Well, Fan made concept art of Joe, and the two share some Nonstandard Character Design quirks...
    • In Sweet Jade and Hella John HD:
      • Dave's "emoified" appearance Diablo makes a blatant appearance during an early school crowd shot. Back then, he just looks like a generic student, but he's actually the fanventure's Big Bad from the future. This is especially because, up to this point, the only characters of note either have glasses or are canon characters.
      • Nepeta's cave-hive/house (due to the whole two species living on Earth deal, and that it's a cave, the exact terminology is unclear) also has a large, hard-to-ignore drawing of the Relic long before it's even named and definitely before the long quest to unite all twelve pieces. Even then, the fact that there's an object that has that twelve-coloring style should give a big cue that something's up, given that everything that uses the same or a similar palette is pretty important.
  • There Is No B In Movie:
    • Ant Infestation is basically a weird parody of B-movies.

[[Folder:

Spoiler with the same content

There's a glitch where folders and notes with the same content will open the first one even if the second is clicked. Does this also apply for clicking off spoilers?

  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy:
    • SJAHJHD: This is probably intentional. The author thought that people were overreacting to canon's darkness. So he made a story that's a full Could Have Avoided This Plot (there is no Because Destiny Said So guiding any of this: The apocalypse, major character deaths, etc were all ultimately in the fault of one of the eight kids instead of by outside forces or antagonists), about the human kids killing eachother rather than the understandably more common trolls, the heroes are almost completely powerless compared to the villains, and to lump it all together it starts off as something far more innocent for its entire first half. Additionally, any sympathy the Big Bad might have is ruined by the way he verbally abuses his almost entirely helpless brother, who is also being possessed and taken over by his own invention.
    • Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals is a little less intentional. The major members of the Rainbow Crew are incredibly unsympathetic: John is a hidden manipulator whose been toying around with at least Jade (and possibly Dave) for as long as he knew her; Jade herself doesn't actually get that much lines later down but she's very stuck-up and constantly acts like she's better than others, and has a rather creepy crush on John (this is ignoring their canonical relationship and they're not related here, it's still creepy thanks to how much she fixates on him) that also is most of her defining trait; Rose is a huge Jerkass who mostly just tries to make herself better on her own terms and just gets off with an attack from Dave. The Crew itself is vast and has a lot more sympathetic members (Dave included), but they are mostly reduced to one-liners and the Crew tend to do things together and along the same time. Add to that its sheer length (well over 200,000 words and having a possible spinoff in the works, not to mention that it's already a spinoff itself to something else that has a prequel, and both of those are 30,000 words each) and the humor that clearly is not meant for everyone (the sheer amount of incest jokes, for one thing, and that it begins with pairing Kanaya with Edward Cullen) and it's obvious that this isn't the kind of fan fic that most, if any, people would stick with to the end.
  • New Powers Are The Plot Demands: Some/most/a few/possibly even all members of the Rainbow Crew are suddenly revealed to be able to repair a car from "jalopy" to "working incredibly" within the span of a few minutes and while being chased by four different threats.
  • Piss-Take Rap:
    • Alucard's "My name is Alucard" rap starts out with him rhyming his own name with "card," and then only gets worse from there.
    • Everything Jade says in Sweet Jade and Hella John HD. The original as well, but she didn't rap as often.
    • Conker the Squirrel does this a lot in HHC, for some reason everything he says in the movie-within-the-fan-fic is some very poorly written rap.
      "HEY!" rapped Conker's Bad Fur Day. "I may be a fan of all kinds of legil drugs. But second hand pot? Really cuts down the life that I love! You punks betta stop that shit, or you'll neva see jugs. My advice is that as kids you didn't get enough hugs!"
  • Race Lift: Self-done-examples for some reason. While everyone else retains their race, Dave and Dirk have been made to be half-Japanese on their father's side in Sweet Jade and Hella John HD.
  • Running Gag:
    • Chapter 19 mentions the Haters who are gonna hate. Every time the "Haters" come up, something along the lines of "who are gonna hate" follows.
    • Similarly, chapter 21 has the Power Glove (it's so bad). Every time the Power Glove (it's so bad) is mentioned by the narrative, it's followed by "it's so bad." The same does not happen when characters speak the name.
    • Chapter 21 also has Dave repeatedly thinking that he can de-summon Hank Hill by "rapping" "Yo yo yo charcoal and tennis and Canada." He's technically right, but it's not an actual de-summoning spell so much as it is Hank getting annoyed at Dave's stupidity and warping away. Unlike the above two, this appears more than just the debut chapter and a Call Back in the final season. Hank finally explains that simply saying "Go away" would be good enough to make him teleport away unless summoned again.
  • Serious Business:
    • "Defaming beef" is apparantly a serious offending crime. This fan fic's Ren and Stimpy Show Within a Show is a kid's show with uncensored swearing, a lot of extremely blatant sexual jokes, worse content than the fan fic it's a part of (which isn't saying much since other Troll Fics are far more offensive, but by this author's standards it's a lot edgier), and the last scene clip manages to turn the torture scene from Grand Theft Auto V Up to Eleven. What gets Moral Guardians to complain about it in 2041 (Right after winning an award in an unrelated episode)? Ren breaking the fourth wall to make up false facts about meat. A few chapters before, Candy is arrested for "Causing traffic disturbance, attempted murder of over ninety teens, and defaming beef." Of course, this is another King of the Hill reference, as Hank managed to get a photo of his colon x-rays taken down from an art showcase after claiming it to be defaming beef.
    • According to Nepeta, golf is serious business in Chicago. As well as surfing, despite the fact that their state is nowhere near an ocean. Naturally, obligatory Jerk Jock Rick is skilled at both of them. This reaches such levels that football and baseball are both considered Acceptable Targets in-universe by players of those respective sports. When finding out that Dave has a hidden talent that lets him instantly score holes-in-ones for average-sized courses, he says that he never spoke about it because he was afraid that the government would disect him. And this is a world where vampires, werewolves, aliens, wraiths, robots, leprechauns, talking squirrels, time-travelers, and whatever the hell Darkhorse is run amuck, among other things. Then again, HHC's Dave is a huge conspiracy theorist, so chances are he's just overreacting about that.
  • Shameless Self-Promotion: Chapter 21 pimps out both Hecksing: The Dawn and 360 Degree Duck, the latter even lampshading this and having the story compare itself to Youtube ads.

  • Bowdlerize:
    • Kids Fight the Zombies is so far the only installment to have something removed outright, likely because the site it was meant for has slightly higher standards than fanfiction.net. A conversation about Dave confessing that he lacks a little down there was cut and altered a bit (believe it or not it's actually plot relevant, since he notes the team about a plane at this), the zombie virus was changed from originating from an STD to originating from a nanoweapon for some reason, and it changes the hero's sleepwear from their underwear to more reasonable pajamas (as the Doofenshmirtz-controlled zombies dump them out of the tent while sleeping and they basically spend the rest of the story like this). The original plan was instead posted on Archive of Our Own and fanfiction.net, under the "Kids Fit Subseries."
    • Housestuck Hurrcain Crconikals. During a major edit to the first five seasons to ret-con a few things and structure the plot so that it fits with seasons six and seven better, a tiny amount was toned down. John's mom does not crush on him as blatantly anymore, and Jade's dad does not crush on her at all (this was was to make one of the guardians into an Only Sane Man). In an inversion, something Damara said to John in chapter 9 was originally "bleeped," but it was replaced with actual dialogue. This is parodied in Censorbot's proposal in chapter 22, which shows the beginning of the story completely uneditted (as it was considerably more family-friendly near the beginning, aside from Alucard burning Edward), then showing random later parts of the story with so many scenes cut that it doesn't make sense anymore.
  • Butt Monkey: Virtually everyone.
    • Peter Griffin has at least been: Killed in a car crash from the moon (It Makes Sense in Context), considered part of an evil army, crushed by a giant organ, shot twice, considered a useless idiot, and stabbed in a game-within-the-fic by a ghost, among other things.
    • In Homestuck installments, this alters between Karkat, Vriska, Aranea, and Roxy. Most commonly Vriska and Roxy. Dave and Jane might dip into this too.
    • Dipper in Journals, who is not only harassed by the usual Monster of the Week, but also frequently bossed around by his Jerkass sentient journal. In Spooky, it more-or-less becomes Mabel's turn to have all the slapstick, but Dipper and Pacifica are basically trolled by Spooky, Bill, and Giffany throughout the entire story.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The first two installments in general had a lot, but to sum it up, they were both inconsequential little short stories that didn't have much dialogue or lead into something else, while every following fic at least makes some attempt at internal consistency and has a story arc, even if none of it is meant to be taken seriously.
  • Flanderization: Dave Strider gets this pretty hard, even ignoring the intentional Ron the Death Eater... itization in SJHAJ(HD). In Kids Fit the Trolls, he makes a random rooster noise when he's told "Don't be a cock," and he occasionally acted odd in the first chapters of Housestuck (thinking that a Bad Santa he thought up was real and actually trying to kill him), but otherwise was pretty down-to-earth especially in the first season. In later Housestuck seasons and in some other SBIG installments where he appears, he is almost entirely a nut who believes in any given conspiracies and has a borderline sitcom manchild personality (but he's almost always a kind one who doesn't fall under Too Dumb to Live, thankfully). This stemmed from the common fandom misunderstanding of taking Dave's canonical personality at face value when he's really not a coolkid played straight, but he's so ridiculous in the SBIG series by now that it's hard to imagine that Fan actually tries to write him in-character for the more serious works.
  • Once an Episode: Either Peter Griffin makes an appearance or there's at least some mention of Family Guy in all installments so far:
    • TEE: Peter helps Eddy get revenge on the Kanker Sisters.
    • ZA: Peter's one of the villains in the Kanker's army.
    • HUC: The series is mentioned in the epilogue. Carl does not like how a "more intellegent show" like it was canceled while Simpsons lived on.
    • SJAHJ: In the original, Peter Griffin was a member of Hank Hill's fighting group the Fox Crew. In HD, as part of the "no crossovers" rule, he merely gets a cameo on a "coming up next" part in television.
    • S&L: Peter appears on a television in the background.
    • KFTT: Dave and Rose warp into the 'verse looking for assistance, but then warp out just to see Peter naked and trying to make a painting.
    • HHC: Peter Griffin is crushed by Doc Scratch's piano by complete accident in chapter 25, which supposedly explains his show's ending by the Distant Finale of Crconikals.
    • GVS: While trying to save his family, Darwin mentions that he's a "family guy!" And this causes Peter Griffin to appear out of nowhere, brag that he's a family guy, and then drives off, all the while Carrie glares at him.
    • HTD: [Oh crap... this one will have to be taken care of in an edit]
    • SBIGlets: The individual stories finally break this trend (the first, 5word, does not mention it at all), but overall Peter Griffin is a minor antagonist in Dexter Vs the Elementals. Before that, in Ship But Not Romance Peter makes a cameo in the program that's "a revival of Futurama" that actually turns out to be a 30-minute long Rick Roll with pictures of him flipping the bird randomly appearing.
    • A5VA6: Dave and Rose's brief trip to Peter is briefly mentioned as a Continuity Nod.
    • KFTZ: The show is mentioned on television in the epilogue.
    • Journals: Nzyvo tries to see if she can get Giffany to hide in a television while FG is on, but she refuses to enter.
    • naruto: Briefest one so far. Hank quickly mentions "that fat guy in green pants" that he had to fight off to get fuel filters. Said guy was confirmed to be Peter Griffin by Word of God.
    • SHooLiBC: Mall of the Spook in this verse now has a Peter Griffin NPC that gets killed. Dipper attempts to use the code from "Fight Fighters" to try to bring either game-Spooky or game-Peter to life, but this results in "a hyper-realistic Peter Griffin picture" popping up followed by the arcade machine exploding.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Take That: Despite being poorly written on purpose, none of these really mock fan fiction in general. Fan also said that no installment is meant to be a complete dig at its given base work(s), but rather the opposite: Writing one or more means that he likes them in some way and just wants to toy around with the characters/setting in something meant for low expectations to begin with, and if he does not like something he outright "retires" it and doesn't have its characters appear until further notice. (Which only happened once so far.)
    • Carl in Hecksing is the classic Parody Stu of sorts. Except exaggerated. For one, in a Hellsing fan fic he's a stereotypical green man with antenne from Mars, and already sticks out of the cast like a sore thumb.
    • Act 5 Vs Act 6 deals one at Teen Titans Go! near the end.
    • The beginning of Kids Fight the Zombies might be a more lighthearted Take That at fluff works, as it starts out claiming itself to be an overly sweet Thanksgiving fluff before zombies suddenly rip John's head off. Twice, somehow.
    • Journals: A certain evil Sonic-derail is hired by Nzyvo to be Giffany's replacement after the former fires the latter over personal disagreements. His only abilities are to control plushies of himself and to make things bleed, and he's generally treated as a pretty poor replacement before he attacks both the Mystery Shack and Nyzvo's group, and Giffany kills him and gets re-enstated as a reward.
    • Spooky's House of OH LOOK IT'S BILL CIPHER:
      • Decks a few take thats at Cliché Storm creepypasta fics ("Hyper realistic" is often used when it's not tied to either work being crossed over), and Parody Failure jokes. When Stan uses the Statefarm Jingle to repair his car, the narrative said "See it's funny because I just took this thing and used other characters for it."
      • Given the original game, more shots at cheap jumpscare-related games are common, such as, once againnote , the Arise series.
      • Original Character Rudy, who is what would happen if Carl from Hecksing was Wrong Genre Savvy and not the type of self-insert who had everything handed to him on a silver platter. As with Carl, he's a mockery of self-inserts, only he's completely despised by everyone (so was Carl eventually, but he was genuinely liked at first and still has Seras and possibly Rip supporting him) and seems to believe he's in a self-insert romance with Spooky. His Establishing Character Moment is trying to look up her dress, then things go downhill from there and he's killed before the end of the first chapter.
      • The same certain evil Sonic-derail makes another appearance here. While he does have a physical form and isn't limited to appearing on screens this time around, he's still considered absolutely pathetic and ability less. He has the same "powers" as before, as well as a new one... to make temporarly things look hyper-realistic. He's also the only character that irritates Bill more than Grenda.
      • One of the "horrors" earlier in the house is that instead of good movies, they just have "poorly-made CGI ripoffs," a take that at Mockbusters such as Video Brinquedo (which John from SJAHJ at least is fatally allergic to, apparantly). Mabel puts it in. It shows a "CGI dog flying around and clipping through the ground, then the voice sounds like some random guy off the street's dad and there's clipping and the plot is bad-to-nonexistant."
    • Housestuck: The Split:
      • In a very strange form of Take That, Audience! not aimed at the audience of Crconikals or SBIG (as it is pretty frequent with action and fight scenes, even if they're purposefully poorly written), early in the first chapter Rose is trying to write a novel and Dave tells her, "Don't even bother with the plot. People will eat up anything as long as it has a lot of cool fightings and things move by quickly." On the flip side, John's advice is the exact opposite: "If the characters look cute and like 'I can make distinct fanart of them,' you'll have a lot of people who make up adventures with them and not care about the plot or their real personalities too much," which is also a self-dig at the Housestuck sub-series itself.
      • This once again mocks any work of media that uses grossing out the audience with violence or general disgusting elements as ways of entertainment, though hypocritically since Rip herself does purposefully invoke terrible transformations to herself that wouldn't look out of place in a modern Spongebob episode just to freak people out. Rip and some very mild Toilet Humor in chapter 19 of HHC aside though, all four Crconikals stories (five counting the pseudo crossover fic with Steven Universe) are actually fairly tame when it comes to disgusting the audience.
      • And chapter four deals one at poorly-done Youtube Poops. "Breaking my ears is not comedy, try to actually be funny before posting to the web." The narrative then goes on to say "HHC HUC HTD and HTS might not be funny but I garuntee if they were in a form of media that had sound they wouldn't be playing loud noises and shoving bright things in your eyes."

  • Widget Series: A handful of them have regular premises (Beautiful Space), but some of the stories are... out-there.
    • 360 Degree Duck: The world already has a sub-group of magic using humans dubbed witches, but there's also a Hell underneath that works pretty differently and has demons that are basically witches, but more powerful. In the first chapter, someone who manages souls or something sends his workers up to the surface and trick them into helping him try to take over the planet. After defeating him, all 360 of said workers and a sort-of superhero with engineered regenerating powers and enhanced strength and resistance all live together in a pretty crappy appartment, while going around fighting random criminals. Later chapters introduce a trio of catsuit-wearing over-dramatic burgulars, an art-obsessed guy with powers over dye, and the female lead's jackass sister who somehow reversed her energy into "anti-energy."
    • THE BEST FAMILY is about a suburbian family with a Buttcuckoolander mother that is also skilled at just about every weapon imagionable, finding a spellbook and getting involved in a bunch of strange paranormal stuff (that is apparantly commonplace in their world) and/or criminal organizations. Not to mention that their world/at least cities are very oddly shaped. The author calls it "A crappy Gravity Falls ripoff with chainsaws" and even admits that the three son's B-plot in the first chapter is a knockoff of "the Inconveniencing," right down to similar morals.
    • A Slash of Mortality, where humanity comes out of puddles of strange liquid, are usually damn-near unkillable, and get into inter-galactic wars with the power of a strange substance that allows faster-than-light travel. And The Reveal does put a more "our world" perspective yet still makes the story even weirder: an expy of Joseph Gribble from King of the Hill has found a fruit that gives him omnipotence after what is implied to be finding out about his mother cheating on his father, then shelters himself in an alternate universe he made where the events of the story take place. It turns out that this was his attempt at a romance novel based on the story of Adam and Eve yet having gone serverely Off the Rails early on.
    • Soap: The Lost Element is a somewhat-standard grade odd fantasy, except the Big Bad has a bowl of soup for a head, and that it unexpectedly gets dark. Apparantly the author was trying to prove a point that a story's darkness is not relative to its quality, but it still comes out of nowhere and involves the two apparant main leads getting Killed Off for Real before the halfway mark.
    • Ms, a closer to family-friendly story about quadruplets who get involved in extra-dimensional trips and several alternate selves after getting lost in a corn maze actually devised by someone trying (and repeatedly failing) to kidnap a military-expert princess. Basically an extremely weird answer to Super Mario Bros. and based off of at least three old Windows '98 screensaversnote .
    • Get Dressed: The Game Webcomic! An MS Paint Fanventure that's kind of Exactly What It Says on the Tin; a brother-sister pair are knocked out of their appartment while nude for various reasons and have to find clothes. Also, the reason why they were knocked out was because some warring agents hijacked the entire building and turned it into a mecha, and on their quest to get clothes the duo also takes down giant robots and swarms of evil alien wasps, among other things.

  • Jerkass:
    • The Homer J. Simpson Clones, according to their readme. Unlike their canon selves, they knowingly go around picking fights with random people and then moon whoever they knock out. (And technically the player if they win, their mooning being represented by a picture of Hank Hill's bare behind.)
    • Pimp Cody. He mistreats basically everyone on his side by implication (unlike GPF's other "combo-platter character" Cheesecakestuck, he throws the characters working with him at the enemy) and most of his intros involve kicking someone else just because they're in his way.
    • Potentially Brenda as well. Not present in the character portrayal herself, but in a cameo of Skirtless Peach's arcade mode intro. As revealed in the translated version that plays in the endingnote , she's incredibly rude to Peach for some reason (despite sharing some fashion choises with this incarnation of Peach), especially given that that's Mushroom Kingdom royalty she's talking to.
    • Cheaper Edd is probably nicer than all of the above, but he's still an Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy that picks fights (though unlike the Homer Army, he only fights if they accept his offer) and will repeatedly humiliate his opponents via his Wagon of Death/Gurren Wagon all while wearing a grin on his face and putting on his Kamina shades. Though since he's implied to be a Humanoid Abomination with multiple methods of creation and several of him co-exist at once, he's surprisingly nice by eldritch-character standards.
    • Template Man morphs into Hank Hill just to tell people they're LOSERS! And, before the start of all his fights, he casts an "illusion" over the stage that color-codes it (based on his life, the opponent's life, and his power) primarly to annoy the opponent. His other victories also involve a bit of trolling, like telling them to "git gud."

  • Shaggy Dog Story: Two quickies so far have had variants:
    • Homestuck in Jaws: The entire marine mission was completely pointless. As it turns out, the shark didn't kill Ezekiel; it merely dragged him out very far into the ocean, then Ezekiel somehow adapted to breathing and living in seawater (as he for some reason has SCP-682-esque abilities) and killed it. It turns out that all other "shark" sightings, like when a group of canoers felt a bump from beneath the surface, was really just Ezekiel trying to get attention and a guide back to shore. The hunting gang do not realize this until after several of them die from mishandling their own equipment and their ship is on the verge of sinking, and it takes a rescue raft to save this from being a full-blown almost-everyone dies scenario.
    • The Last Propane Salesman on Earth: Hank and co.'s entire journey didn't matter in the end, because regardless of what they would have done Ragyo and Anti-Spiral would have still fused, still opened the box, and still died. This is lampshaded endlessly. Hank had to endure a bunch of fanservice-parody shenanigans for nothing.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Apparantly the Five Researchers take a few thematic cues from the Elite Four (though their unofficial leader is more along the lines of Rossiu than Satsuki). Ironically, none of them share the same loyalty. Quite the opposite in fact.
    • Jamie specifically has the same visual characterisitcs as a Rhulloian, with purple skin, a forehead eye, and all three eyes are bright blue. Her home Spring is even on a comet.

  • So when the second generation of the Crew goes to the past, it's before any of them are concieved. They went back exactly 17 years in the past, and go 17 years plus their time in the past (one week) to get to the present. John himself was 17 (and he was said to be the Rainbow Crew's oldest, with Jade coming in at second by only a week) yet turned 18 in the 360 chapter, since his birthday was still April 13th. (And he's possibly the only character to retain his canonical birthday.) Chapter 21 took place near the end of February, and Beth was not pregnant with John back then. Does this mean that she had the fastest pregnancy ever? Same goes by whoever Dean knocked up, given that the span from March to April is obviously not nine months.
    • This actually got an explanation by Calliope in the final chapter, saying that it was all part of the "Trifold Powers" that the human members of the Rainbow Crew had (the pregnancy was somehow "safetly sped up," and there was a Do Not Try This At Home Disclaimer). As for the trolls, we don't know how they mature, suffice to say that they don't stay in pre-born/egg state for long.
  • If the Rainbow Crew trolls were all ditched by their ancestors, how did, at the very least, Nepeta know she was born on Valentine's Day? The same goes for the ancestors, given that they don't even know about them being the direct descendants of the Troll Empress and for a very good reason given their origins.
  • The epilogue of Hecksing just says that "Sonic died" for that character, and refused to elaborate further. This was originally open-ended as a joke, but similar to Pip's re-appearances as a ghost, even this got more elaboration in Housestuck: he died in a Heroic Sacrifice that saved Jane from one of Doc Scratch's Vitamin Scratch Lazer Blasts.
  • You wouldn't think a Stylistic Suck fan fic could have clearly-hated characters, but it does. Some cast members stand out:
    • Roxy. She basically has every single flaw of her canon self turned Up to Eleven, has almost none of her redeeming qualities, and takes until the fourth-to-last chapter to show any signs of sticking Character Development whatsoever (all previous instances get wiped out by means of Aesop Amnesia). She's hated most of all for attempting to mendle John and Jane's fauling relationship with a love potion that turned out to be a hate potion which nearly got the whole Rainbow Crew killed, which is seen as creepy relationship manipulating. To add insult to injury, her counterpart and guardian-like expy (as well as her own guardian, Sis) go through character development faster than her, despite not being introduced until around halfway through the story while Roxy was introduced back in the beginning. This might actually be a side-effect of the author's own projection: He apparantly finds the character overrated, ranked her very low on his entry in the "Popularity Tier List," and this is probably the kindest Fan wrote her as in the SBIG series (she's usually outright villainous). While Roxy does claim to make herself into a better person after said Hate Plague incident in chapter 23, the spinoff the Split taes place in a timeline that basically means the events of chapters 22+ didn't happen, which means she could be reset all the way back to square one.
    • Jade falls a lot more under the Unintentionally Unsympathetic side. (Roxy was at least intended to be seen as pathetic, but not dispisable.) She's supposed to be seen as one of the "better" members out of the "B2" group (alongside Dave), but this falls flat given that she's the closest thing the Rainbow Crew has to a Lisa Simpson expy. Complete with some occasional preechyness in chapter 15. Add to this that she's almost entirely defined by her crush on John in the earlier chapters and her incredible weird "I'm always right" atittude in the later, and her extremely-poorly written/explained way how she was ret-conned from having Single-Target Sexuality to John (and later his counterpart Jean) just "making her more open to relationships in general," and she's easily one of the less liked members.
  • The Woobie:
    • Nepeta probably has the roughest life of the whole Crew, with Damara as her only close competition. As revealed near the end, she had witness several previous groups of friends get Killed Off for Real and having not been revived in any way so far (one of those groups was when they were about eight), and wrote the journal to prevent this from happening. And failing. Repeatedly. A flashback comic briefly shows that Nepeta herself would have been killed if not for the Simpsons-immortality code, and was injured horribly and had to recover via the code. It was also implied that she made a deal with Rip, which temporarly left her in a horrible state (at least her eyes are completely black and her arms are turned to tentacles, and based on the expression whatever transformation Rip did to her is extremely painful). The final image of the comic shows her in a dark room with the journal on the table and her head face-down on it, looking completely miserable.
  • Cerebus Retcon:
    • Two of the fates in the "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue of Hecksing Ulumate Crconikals are given context: Cartman and Sonic's fates. It turns out that they both died in 2011, and not somewhere in the long span in the future towards 2041. Cartman tried to attac the Crew and Hecksing in chapter 24 and was the biggest cause of conflict, while Sonic went down in a Heroic Sacrifice to save Jane.
    • Basically everything related to Nepeta. Her dislike of clothes? She had a group of friends that were eaten by Kamui. Her lower relevancy in the first half? A form of Obfuscating Stupidity, she doesn't want to be spotted out and considered a major target. Her not being killed (and then revived) in chapter 12, unlike most of the other canon-dead-trolls? There's a code established in a completely unrelated fan fic that somehow influenced the world of this: She has immortality, and already hates in at the age of 17 at the latest. Her journal calling Rip an asshole and leaving it at that? It turns out that once upon a time, Rip didn't just limit her dealing group to the Housestucks, and made some deal with Nepeta that is yet to be specified but apparantly involved Nepeta temporarly having some Body Horror. Her general atittude? Practically a mask. As with Eve from Slash of Mortality (at least in the first three chapters), she's actually incredibly depressed because she's afraid of the entire Rainbow Crew dying and her losing another group of friends with something that she survives with horrible injuries, something that almost happened in chapter 18 (which prompted a major breakdown from her), and wants the Crew to enjoy their finite lives as much as possible. What a fun character, no?

Cheaper Edd's portrait, Edd edited to have poorly-drawn Kamina shades on

Cheesecakestuck the RPG.

  • Absentee Actor: Neither major Cherub from canon makes an appearance, which is odd since virtually every character except the sprites do in some form (including each form of Jack).
  • Anti-Frustration Features:
    • Despite tossing a lot of pro-frustration features, the game also tries to make itself relaxing. It warns you ahead of time (by implication) that one of the party members will be Lost Forever if you don't get her before beating the first boss, John refuses to leave the first dungeon without getting Dave (who is in a chest), and all party members except aformentioned Dave are clear and blatantly in the open.
    • When first seeing Aurink, she's missing her bikini bottom and wants you to get a new one. If you turn back and try to explore the town, she will tell you "Um, no, you should look in the tower. It's there. I know it."
  • Astral Finale: The last three dungeons take place in increasingly higher areas: First the sky, then in space just above Earth, then in deep space with galaxies visible in the background.
  • Bait-and-Switch Boss: After reaching the top of the Northern Tower of Void, Nix is revealed to have been killed by Ezekiel, who takes her place as the boss of the region.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment:
    • The Mushroom Samba in the Eastern Tower of Light. John goes solo on an acid trip through about three screens of colorful gibberish, fighting evil save points while talking to "good" save points (that still don't save the game), and the boss is a toilet. In addition, you only go through it because the man selling you the mushroom is also blocking your path.
    • After beating Hephaestus, the entire Cheesecakestuck team is sent back in time and Dave kicks Hitler in the groin. There is no plot significance of this whatsoever, but it does lead to one of the few genuinely voice-acted moments in the whole game: "OOSH! MEESH NEINS!"
  • Bonus Boss: Hidden throughout the overworld are seven computer systems, which need to be "deactivated" to open a gigantic red door at the start of the Disc One Final Dungeon. Inside you find the player-four's "canonical" selves (Jade noticably still doesn't appear to be merged with Bec), who are not happy at all with the CCS derivative-changes. Beating them means rescuing the counterparts, which translates to adding a whopping 64 more recruits to the whole game, doubling even the endgame amount.
  • Bragging Rights Reward: The Counterpart Collab. It is the strongest special attack in the game, but you get it by beating the Bonus Boss. Since it's likely that the final boss is beaten beforehand and there are no other optional fights in the same remote tier list, this is really only useful if you target the bonus boss as soon as possible and have the rest of Cheesecakestuck rescued, except without the leveling of the final three dungeons the bonus boss is incredibly brutal.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall:
    • After rescuing Dave from the chest, she comments on how long it took John and co. to get there. She begins by saying "I was here for..." then says "I'm gonna be nice and assume that you took less than an hour to beat this level." Might be Leaning on the Fourth Wall instead.
    • If you go to the final boss area after beating the game, it's rebranded as a dance studio with Never Gonna Give You Up playing. John comments on being Rick Roll'd, disgusted at it, which seems a lot more like she's talking about the game itself and not the dance floor.
  • Broken Bridge: The game claims that it is open-ended and you can do the dungeons in any other, but that's obvious bull. Every single path is blocked by some river or something that requires you to kill the Denizen responsible to get a way over. Not that this matters too much, given the short length of the dungeons.
  • Butt Monkey:
    • Dave is frequently the butt of several jokes and she's the only party member outside of the counterparts that's captured. The rest of them are either found sleeping, trying to do the mission solo, or generally hanging around somewhere.
    • Mindfang Bezedu, despite being an optional member, still manages to be this. She's nearly crushed by a meat processor upon introduction, is scared of spiders, and as of the ending there is a photo of her exposed nethers circulating the internet, all because a newspaper photographer accidentally took a group shot at the exact wrong moment in time.
  • Checkpoint Starvation: The later dungeons get a little ridiculous in their lack of checkpoints, with the last two only having one save point at the start, one before the miniboss, and one before the end boss, which also gives away their positions.
  • Continuity Lock-Out: The reward for the Bonus Boss makes a lot less sense if you're unfamiliar with the maker's "counterpart" concept, which is basically just a sort of Alternate Self of the character with a slight (or major, or intentionally Flanderized) personality change.
  • The Dev Team Thinks of Everything:
    • After beating Typheus, a path behind him leads straight outside the tower and to the overworld. John refuses to go through this until you've rescused Dave, in a visible treasure chest off to the side. If you try to go the long way out the dungeon and through the door you came, John still refuses.
    • Certain conversations can change depending on optional party members, such as if you have Vriska and/or Bezedu with you when fighting the spider miniboss or not.
    • At the final level, Dark Post-Scratch Dad referrs to the team by the number of members with them. If it is between 64 and 128, meaning that you have the counterparts but not everybody, he'll take note that you "Got the order wrong".
  • Disc One Final Boss: Ezekiel. You're barely more than halfway through the game (6/9 dungeons cleared, and those last three are longer on average), even though the Northern Tower of Void seems like the final area and if you've been recruiting members you'll have every non-counterpart character, and even the counterparts are just one computer terminal away (it's not available until after beating Ezekiel).
  • The Dragon: Hemera to Nix, Abraxas to Yaldabaoth, and Dark Post-Scratch Dad to Satan (close enough).
  • Duel Boss: John vs the Lo-Flow, as she's taking a bad acid trip and she's the only one that thinks the lo-flow even exists. Similarly, John Vs Jade.
  • Dueling Player Characters: John fights Jade late into the penultimate dungeon. She's its miniboss, in fact.
  • Everything Trying to Kill You: Puppets, statues, skateboards, posters, and the like are the real threats of the game, while the giant canonical Sburb constructs are extremely weak. When John takes a "Super Mushroom" and starts tripping out, the only enemy of that portion is malicious save points, and the boss is a poorly-working lo-flow toilet.
  • Exposed to the Elements: All of Cheesecakestuck spend the whole game fighting in bikinis, as the MUGEN character does. There was going to be some reasoning that combat suits over heat them greatly, but Fan thought it would be funnier if they were going around like this for absolutely no reason at all.
  • Fake Ultimate Mook:
    • The "large" enemies like ogres, liches, and whatthehells are actually complete pushovers, while things like imps, salamanders, and evil save points (through a bad hallucination) can wipe out any unsuspecting party.
    • Satan only has one hit point and an extremely weak attack. Metal Satan, on the other hand, is more along the lines of a proper final boss.
  • Faux Symbolism: Parodied — the locations of the six initial towers forms a cross.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: Echidna and Hephestus fight in the buff and are the only Denizens with anything worth censoring, but covered by pixellation and his important parts being on fire respectively.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation:
    • Cheesecake Alpha Mode supposedly gives all members of Cheesecakestuck enourmous boosts in powers and skills, and allows them to pull off "impossible" and "immortal" feats. In-game, all it does is provide a way to fully heal health and special before each major boss.
    • When John fights Jade, her stats are absurdly high and almost at the levels you'd get after some serious endgame enemy grinding.
    • When Kanaya is first found, she's fighting off three imps with a chainsaw and single-handedly knocks them out. Her actual skills in game (based on the usual Stat Buff you get from getting a new party member) are nowhere near this powerful.
    • The most blatant parody is that Aurink is first seen missing her bikini bottom and wants the team to retreive it before she can join the party (and she's a mandatory member). Despite the fact that stores can sell "updates" to the character's swimsuits that act as armor, and how it's implied that there isn't really anything special about the swimsuits CCS wears, you absolutely need to find the garment later in the dungeon and kill a (live-sized) spider on it.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Again with the bizarre character concept as a whole: Everyone retains their canonical name this time.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere:
    • Most of the minibosses, which include a poorly-working toilet from a drug hallucination, WV in a mecha made of cans, a killer spider on Aurink/Disciple's swimsuit bottom, and Jade suddenly having a personal disagreement out of the blue.
    • Ezekiel comes out of nowhere and is one of the few characters in the whole game not connected to Homestuck at all, and the only one that is a crossover from another seriesnote .
    • The final boss is Satan. His One-Winged Angel form is called "Metal Satan," which just looks like him but with an electric guitar.
  • The Ghost: Nix is killed before being seen, her information file only shows her grave (as with the ending credits picture, with Ezekiel on top of the tombstone), and in a flash back she's obscured by self-made void powers.
  • Goddamn Bats: Luck You Bots. As what happens when you switch a letter in their name implies, they are added just to peeve off the player. Their attack is in the single-digets, but they have incredibly high evade and for some reason they automatically disable the running option. Fighting them is more along the lines of waiting for them to die, which is a Luck-Based Mission. People with really bad luck can take about one minute per encounter, and the Eastern Tower of Light is infested with them.
  • Interface Spoiler:
    • Aversion: The "achievement" for beating Ezekiel is labeled "Queen of Void," which fits with the theme of the other Denizen boss battles. You have absolutely no idea that he'll jump out of nowhere and be fought in that place.
    • Another aversion, though not from the interface so much as game mechanics: The member counter says [number you have]/128. When beating the Disc One Final Dungeon, this should still only be at 64, implying that this is all roughly halfway through the game... it might be, but you don't get any new members in the last three dungeons. Instead, it's the Bonus Boss and the reward for them. Despite that, if you manage to get the reward before defeating Abraxas, and it seems like the game's near the end, but there's still two more to go.
    • Played straighter with achievements implying the existance of at least two more end-game bosses: "Snakey Snake" and "The Angry Sun" heavily imply that the last two known Denizens are in the game as well, and "John's Two Daddies" gives away a particularly large plot twist and hints at the final boss.
  • Killer Rabbit: At one point, Cheesecakestuck is attacked by a single spider. That only appears to be slightly bigger than a real-life spider (hard to tell even with Aurink's swimsuit being part of the battle sprite and offering size comparason, though Aurink herself appears to be one of the thinner members), yet is still treated as a normal boss. Gets odd considering Jade and Rose are shooting bullets/magic respectively and Dave is cutting it up yet it's somehow not being killed by the blows yet take them. Also, the way Aurink's bikini isn't damaged from this in any way is not discussed.
  • Large and In Charge: The Denizens are pretty huge. Their overworld sprites just consist of the bases of their tails, as they are probably large enough to take over the screen. It's only when fighting them that a clearer full view of all of them comes into play. Fittingly, Yaldabaoth is the largest of them, and the leader.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: 128 party members (but only four actually fight/are playable; the rest are glorified stat boots with occasional lines), nine major bosses, and a commander and his Evil Twin.
  • Lost Forever: This game is intentionally designed to mess around with completionists a little, so this is a given.
    • You can collect "files" on all enemies by using a move called scan, whereupon they can be viewed in a little gallery of sorts. Bosses cannot be gotten from scanning, but they can be bought, as well as other major characters and Unfought opponenets. However, the evil save points will be lost forever since they only appear in an area while John is high, that cannot be returned to.
    • If you neglect to get Roxy before defeating Typheus, the plateu she's located on is inaccessable. The reason for this is that his oil river also causes a small bridge of sorts that actually leads into the air; without it, the chunk of concrete that would have led up now stands flat on the ground, and Roxy is now on a ledge about as high as the playable characters yet cannot reach up it in any way. Trying to talk to her lampshades that you're pretty much screwed, though you can still get her counterpart by clearing the Bonus Boss.
    • At the very beginning of the game, you start in a room with a treasure chest containing twelve megalixirs. Which are also items that cannot be found anywhere else in the game, even as rare drops. If you leave the door to this room, it becomes permanently locked. Doing this without getting the megalixirs prompts a response from Nepeta lampshading it, and thanks to how long the oppening sequence is it's discouraged to start all over.
  • Mind Screw: To sum it up, the entire goddamn game.
    • After being sold a magic mushroom that supposedly heals all injuries (which is apparantly true since John is healed in both HP and SP), John undergoes an acid trip where she walks along what looks like a bunch of colors splashed together in MS Paint, fights evil save points, and goes up against a toilet that attacks by... taking more than one flush to remove waste.
    • If you're unfamiliar with the character concept of Cheesecakestuck or especially the backstory behind why there's basically four of every player, then this counts too. The Bonus Boss is a mind screw on its own since the characters are fighting "canonical" counterparts out of nowhere that are behind a door with seven seals that looks incredibly Satanic, but beating said boss unlocks the counterparts. You should probably know what "counterpart" in this context means.
    • The Bonus Boss. You fight God-Tiered, younger, no-longer all-female literal white-skinned versions of John, Jade, Rose, and Dave, who are referred to as "Canonical?" (always with quotes and a question mark) and are found from within a dark void behind a blood red door that requires shutting off random computers to unlock. What is even with the red void they are fought in isn't clear, as when they're defeated they simply vanish and what's inside afterwards is a completely normal room. Absolutely nothing in the game or from the author elaborate on this.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • The maker's fan fics:
      • Believe it or not, this isn't the first time an incarnation of Dave has been trapped in a treasure chest.
      • "Still way too reliant on MS Paint."
      • Housestuck: The Split: An incarnation of Mindfang that's arachnophobic.
    • The original MUGEN character:
      • Before every area boss, John orders Cheesecakestuck to enter a "form" accessed through nanobots or something that fully heals the whole team, the explanation for why this isn't spammed being that an overuse of it will cause the bots to ignite on fire and explode, also blowing up the members. Similar to this, when CCS is fighting a cheap opponent in MUGEN, the opening will be John apparantly activting a similar move, then the character starts the round with full power (but not full health in the case of survival or turn battles).
      • Your "reward" for clearing the gallery is a photo of all members of CCS mooning you. When you get a perfect in a match, something similar to this happens, except instead of being bunched together they are morphing across the character list.
  • Non-Standard Character Design:
    • John's Dad is the only character in the entire game that actually uses an image of his canon self. In his case, for his talking portrait.
    • Similarly, effort was made to make Ezekiel's sprite resemble his canon self. Given that Total Drama has a vastly different art style than the game, this is apparant.
    • Typheus is drawn with an Animesque, Bishōnen expression.
  • One-Winged Angel: Metal Satan.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: Averted with the counterparts, who not only are apparantly not alternate selves this time around, but get along just fine with their "originals." The "canonical" selves do not take kindly to their CCS variants for whatever reason. It's even implied that they locked up everyone's counterpart-ish characters out of spite.
  • Party in My Pocket: Everyone, including Jade, Rose, and Dave (who are controllable in battles), goes into John in the overworld after being made part of the party. This seems to work in-universe, with the first time this happens distressing John a little since she forgot how it worked, as well as John being reluctant to have a large number of characters get back inside her at once. Believe it or not, this is somewhat consistent with how the original Cheesecakestuck character opperates, turning from one person to another as a result of some similar pocket dimension-ing.
  • Pixellation: Echidna, since she fights with bare breasts. Technically all of the Denizens are naked, but she's the only one that's anatomically correct in this way. Nix might not be an exception either, given by a partially obscured sillouette in a flashback she looks almost identical to Hemera.
  • Playable Epilogue: The game can still be played as normal after beating the endboss, and the characters even lampshade that there's very little reason to do so unless you haven't recruited all optional members and/or beat the Bonus Boss. Oddly, while the final dungeon is supposedly revived as a disco club, all rooms other than the first and boss area are still filled with enemies. Going to the area the final boss is fought results in a populated disco area, with Never Gonna Give You Up playing in the background.
  • Rick Roll: This happens to you if you go the final boss's area after beating the game.
  • Shout-Out:
    • The mushroom that sends John on a bad trip resembles the creepy-looking mushroom from the Mario creepypasta I HATE YOU.
    • The lo-flow toilet boss fight that follows is based on an episode of King of the Hill. Showing restraint from the author, this is the only KOTH reference in the whole game.
    • How does the final boss end? A Beam-O-War with galaxy-dwarfing drills.
    • In the epilogue, the team is awarded with a "Pure Platinum Medal." Confirming 101 specifically, the head to the newspaper even reads "HEROES STAND STRONG."
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Virtually everything out of Yaldabaoth's mouth is a swear of some sorts.
  • Surprise Creepy: Inverted. It presents itself as a "survival horror RPG" and the title screen is soaked in blood, but once you see the player character it instantly becomes apparant that this is not meant to be taken seriously at all.
  • Suspicious Video Game Generosity:
    • When John says "Engage Cheesecakestuck Alpha Mode" and you see "HP and SP fully restored!" do not rejoyce. The bosses are so tough that even at your fullest you're probably screwed against them.
    • The Very Definitely Final Dungeon parodies this by the final walkway to the endboss: It's a long hall filled with save points and shops, even though the shops all sell the same thing and the redundancy of the save points should be self-explanatory.
  • And That's Terrible: Parodied. "The Lo-Flow Toilet took four flushes to remove waste! That is terrible plumbing design!"
  • That One Boss: Ezekiel is surprisingly brutal. In addition to being able to defy sense and attack twice, his arrows can inflict any given status effect in the game, something even the Bonus Boss isn't capable of. This is lampshaded in-game, where no matter how well you actually do, beating him gets this conversation:
    Cronus: U.S.A! U.S.A!
    Jade: Are you serious? He kicked our asses when he was outnumbered and didn't have a super special power form!
    John: We only won by the skin of our teeth. If we're going by that fight, Canada is clearly the better country.
  • Too Awesome to Use:
    • Right from the start, if you notice the (rather clear) treasure chest, you can get twelve megalixirs, which fully heal the whole party's HP and SP. The thing is, this is the only point you can get them. They are not available through drops, shops, or in other treasure chests, and cannot be won at minigames. And considering the number of fake endings this has, false final battles, you could easily be up to Metal Satan yet still think the game goes further and have held on to about seven of the things, and the only reason why the previous five might have been used was because you were sure Ezekiel, Abraxas, or Yaldabaoth were the final boss.
    • After beating Typheus and rescuing Dave, you get something one step higher: The gigalixir, which does everything the megalixir does, revives dead members with full health, fills everyone's limit break bar, and "summons a ghostly image of Kamina that does massive damage." But like the megalixirs, that point is the only time you get one. So not only do you have dosen of the second-most powerful healing item in the game, there's also just one of an even more powerful healing item one dungeon later that taunts you for practically the whole game.
  • Trolling Creator: The game goes to great lengths to troll the player. This includes going three screens to get to a treasure chest that gives you an item that's extremely useless and low-level at that point, having the most odd-looking of enemies kill you, enlongating the plot with little warning, a boss warning you about saving if you haven't but then said boss rushes you down and starts the fight before you get the chance to get near that save point, and refusing to show Nix, among other things.
  • The Unfought:
    • Nix is killed offscreen by Ezekiel. You fight him instead, on top of her enormous grave.
    • Dark Post-Scratch Dad is not fought either. He just summons Satan, gets crushed by him, and you have to fight said devil instead.
  • Video Game Settings: Based loosely off of the Lands in the cases of the first six towers:
  • Wardrobe Malfunction:
    • Aurink suffered one sometime before you meet her proper. It's extremely hard to tell due to the sprite style, but according to character's comments she's resorting to leaning against a random wall of the dungeon and covering herself with her hand.
    • By the end, Bezedu has a censor bar over her in the newspaper shot, implying her swimsuit with slipped away or rode up too much.
  • Worst News Judgement Ever: Apparantly a team of heroes saving the world ranks second to accidentally photographing them when one is suffering from a Wardrobe Malfunction: After the shot closed-in on "HEROES STAND STRONG" there's another zoomed out to reveal the whole newspaper. The top headline reads "CHEESECAKESTUCK MEMBER EXPOSED!" which uses the same picture as the "HEROES STRAND STRONG" onenote .
  • Where the Hell Is Springfield?: You're never told just where this game takes place becides "the United States." This is lampshaded exactly once: when it's revealed Ezekiel is Nepeta's ex, Jake asks what state this is in to determine if the former is even legal for the latter thanks to her being about six years older in this universe (she's 22-24 while he's his canonical age of 16). Nepeta, flustered, replies "The state of back off!"
  • Your Princess Is in Another Castle: First you're led to think that the Void Tower of the North is the final dungeon, then Nix is killed by Ezekiel and you think he's the final boss, then comes the fight in Abraxas's new tower, then Yaldabaoth's, and you're finally send into outer space to fight Satan. Excuse me, Metal Satan.

    MUGEN (Again) 

The future?
  • Berserk Button:
    • Cheaper Edd really hates invincibility and One-Hit Kills (considering them "on the way of making cheapness not a contest of who has the best attacks, but who can code the quickest-killing character"), and this is reflected by how the character is made to combat with both of them. Anything that does substancial-enough damage aside from Cheaper Edd's own "Diablo X" striker will fully heal him instead of killing him, and the character checks to see if his opponent has any "get hit" animations. If said opponent does not, then he will cross his arms, shake his head, and walk offscreen, and the game crashes shortly after with the message "You're trying too hard -- C.E."
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: An edit of Edd referred to as "Cheaper Edd" will repeatedly and frequently adress the player directly without ambiguity. Notably, he and Lethal Joke Character Cheesecakestuck are the only two characters in the particular maker's whole group that does this. He often just trolls them, like saying "Face it. I'm like the Sasuke Uchiha of your roster!" But he can be a little more threatening. He claims to only fight those who clearly take him on, but he's implied to threaten the life of the creator ("Why yes, my maker does have too much time on his hands. Or so he thinks. He is mortal, after all...") and if he's against an invincible opponent he will cause the game to crash and address the player directly. Not to mention one of his strikers is Giffany, who is established to posses electronics... but only seems to appear personally from within the electronics... yet appears personally and large in-game... and your computer is an electronic. The cherry on top is the fact that, if left alone for a while, her "Striker Gauge Picture" will corrupt for a split second, and nobody else's does.
  • Glass Cannon:
    • Joke Character "Mojito," which is taken from a one-off Family Guy. It's actually Brian, but apparantly confined to a chair (he can jump one million timesnote , but cannot move left or right) and repeatedly tosses out the eponymous drink at enemies. He virtually dies in one hit, but his drinks are also one-hit-killers. There was a later variation that downplays this, a one-off gang from The Simpsons ("Bombardment"), who can move around, doesn't die in one hit, and rapidly tosses dodgeballs that don't do much damage by themselves but can easily trap the opponent.
  • Lethal Joke Character:
    • Pimp Cody. His portrait looks like a cheap joke: MS Paint-added cigar, shades, and with marajuana leaves in the background, and a crappy purple cape added. In-game, he routinely throws other people at his enemies and has rather terrifying hypers, and is considered an SNK Boss.
    • Cheesecakestuck, the Good Counterpart to Pimp Cody, is probably worse. The sprites are a giant
  • Trolling Creator:
    • And he replied to complaints about Skirtless Peach by making another Lethal Joke Character in the form of "Stripper Mario," who is not only Exactly What It Says on the Tin, but also exactly as Fan Disservicey as he sounds. He relatedly said that complaints about Jade's Modesty Shorts would result in him editting her sprites so that what's under her dress is more revealing (but given how it's still unchanged, he was probably joking). On a related note, requests about Jade using more of her Witch of Space powers had him release an intentionally crappy edit just called "Witch of Space," who hadokens badly compressed JPGs of galaxies, does other nonsensical attacks, and overall goes on the opposite extreme and removes any ties to Jade's original character (or title, since none of her abilities here were used in-comic at all).

  • Jossed. The intro now includes a brief flashback to CCS-John's life back when she was seven (younger than her canon self's starting age), and she was a girl back then too. Either situation could still be true on their own, but there is no "canon divergence." It's a flat-out AU.

Cheaper Edd:
  • Time: Because of his high health and above-average defense, as well as his frequent use of the invincible Wagon attack, Cheaper Edd's medal requirements give you far more time than usual.
    • Platinum: 2:30 or below.
    • Gold: 2:31—3:00.
    • Silver: 3:01—3:30.
    • Bronze: 3:31—4:00.
    • Consolation Prize: Needing more than four minutes to beat him.
  • Combo: Same as the average fighter/default setting.
    • Platinum: 100 or higher
    • Gold: 71—99
    • Silver: 51—70
    • Bronze: 33—50
    • Consolation Prize: Below 32 (As in all the default cases, using Basic Rush/I'm Gonna Ass Your Kick is a garunteed bronze)
  • Damage: Because of his higher attack power and quick combo skill, these may seem a little more loose than normal (divided evenly instead of on account of gold going away after about three regular hit's worth of damage), except that his lightest attacks will deplete even Cheesecakestuck's high life count at terrifying rates.
    • Platinum: No damage, as always
    • Gold: 1—500 (3/4ths or more health remains)
    • Silver: 501—1000 (1/2 or more health remains)
    • Bronze: 1001—1500 (1/4th or more health remains)
    • Consolation Prize: Taking 1501+ points worth of damage (Less than 1/4th of a full life bar remains)


A self-made fan fic adaptation of the crap I'll try to do for the MUGEN [sic]. Character sheet.

  • Action Girl: Implicitely all of them, combatting together for once.
  • Confusion Fu: They often, but not always, all fight when fused together. Instead of looking like an actual combination of all 128 of them, instead the character appears to flicker rapidly between all the individuals who make them up ala Uppercut, and does weird things like throwing giant stone heads at enemies.
  • Exposed to the Elements: They fought in swimsuits. Though 19 years ago, when younger and their numbers were only at four, they had full body suits and even named their then-group after those costumes.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: In-fic, when fighting Cheaper Edd they all enter "final punch," which supposedly matches up their stats to Cheaper Edd's own and allows them limited ability to also engage in galaxy-sized fights. In M.U.G.E.N., nothing's at a galactic scale ala the end of Gureen Lagann, and instead all the mode really does is give them a full hyper bar at the start of the round (though if one is good enough with hypers, this can lead to a devastating series of first attacks).
  • Gender-Blender Name: Everyone retains their original names, so this is a given. Probably the first time in the author's continuity that someone named Joan averts this.
  • In Name Only: Though the fic adaptation tries to keep them closer to canon than their original MUGEN bases, but this still doesn't mean that they aren't closer to Homestuck than they are Wonderful 101.
  • Multiple Choise Past: According to GPF himself, "The stuff about Pimp Cody is only really canon whenever he's around, and they might have a different story." This also goes double for the other characters who have their own canonical bases, explaining why Hank Hill doesn't really seem to care about the guy who blew up the place he worked at when in-game.
  • The One Guy: Hank Hill seems to be the only male permanent member. John's father might have counted back when Cheesecakestuck was simply the Four Suits, albeit as someone who didn't want to get into the action unless necessary, but he died long before John found out about Hank's existance.
  • Revenge: Subverted in John's case. She quickly gets over trying to blindly avenge her father's death at Pimp Cody's orders and tries to make saving whoever he endangers next a higher priority than getting revenge on him.
  • You Killed My Father: Pimp Cody basically led to John's Dad's death.


PC (Not Personal Computer)

  • An Arm and a Leg: If you look closely in his sprites in-game, his right leg is gray/robotic when his long pant legs aren't obscuring it. Cheesecakestuck-John blew it off in a fit of rage at killing her dad. She also knocked out a tooth.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: It's implied that, while Cheaper Edd is just a straight-up stronger and more jerkass version of Edd, Pimp Cody is merely Cody but mind-controled in some way.
  • Cerebus Retcon: On the surface he looks like a standard wacky joke character, but... if the fan fic tie-in is any indication, he pretty much did something terrible to every character GPF made. He killed Cheesecakestuck-John's father, enslaved Brenda for an unspecified period of time, blew up Strickland Propane (the stage being hand-waved as a re-started establishment, complete with Strickland Propane 2 opening not too far away from it but offscreen), and antagonized a large culture of Pikmin. The only major exceptions (aside from obvious one-off test characters like FY, Template Man, Mojito, etc) are villains or implied villains like Cheaper Edd and the Homer Army.
  • The Dragon: To Omega Drew Pickles.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Cheesecakestuck. They both utilize other people that rapidly shift into one-another and they are Affectionate Parodies of Self-Fanservice, except he abuses his other "teammates" and clearly shows disregard towards others, while Cheesecakestuck is more-or-less your average camp superhero(ine) group.
  • Expy: To both Doc Scratch and Lord English. He's an all-powerful "pimp"-looking character who enslaved a little girl and made her induce fear in exchange for a way out,
  • Older Than He Looks: He appeared in a flashback 19 years ago still looking like a teenager with his canonical appearance, meaning he's at the very least 35.
  • Purple Is Powerful: The organization he's from uses a color-coded scaling system extremely similar to the hemospectrum. There's the "mooks," six tiers (sixth to first in order of lowest to highest) that cover dark red to jade green. Then three "fighter" tiers, teal, cerulean, and navy blue. Then there's only one "co-pimp" at a given time (indigo), and only one of his rank of "pimp" (purple), and just one "supreme macdaddy leader" (royal-purple). In-game, Cody's default outfit of purple is in truth a symbol of his rank, though his other eleven palettes each have a different color. Mooks have rags that are intentionally torn by the end and barely cover their backs, fighters get meh-ish capes that go down to their knees, the three high-rankers have fancy and comfortable capes that can fall to the floor. In the past, Cody was a mere fourth-tier mook in yellow when he killed Dad Egbert, yet that murder promoted him greatly since he was a large enemy.

     Lots and Lots of Trees 

  • I Resemble That Remark:
    • Joe marks down Duplicate Meulin for being obsessant over classes and aspects on his first verse. In both of her verses, she's constantly working in those titles in some way, annoying the crap out of him.
    • Icesky attempts to accuse others of living up to her insults all the time. One particularly nonsensical moment is when she flat-out states that "Of course, anyone who opposes me will try to complain about me, but that's the point!" not being any more specific than that. Blue, who is usually incredibly insistent on pointing out all of her logical fallacies (no matter how many times Red/Yellow/Magenta/whoever says it's futile since Icesky never listens), is rendered speechless by it.
  • A Rare Sentence:

Mythbusters vs Ghostbusters.

  • This is parodied with new "advanced techniques" being discovered with names such as "air-grounding," "ground-airing," "walk-cancelling," "cancel-cancelling," "vampire backwalk," and "jump-Marioing," among others.

What A Cartoon

Oh Yeah! Cartoons

Unfortunate Implications is not "Stuff a story implies that is disturbing." That's probably Fridge Horror. It's "Story accidentally comes across as carrying offensive views."

     
Nah because it would be kinda cliche if the Desert-Gems were all just standard-grade evil selves. And this is coming from someone who likes alternate selves and evil counterparts. I really don't think both on the same character/character group would work well. So the Desertite world is more of a For Want Of Nail (which due to canonical events I had to change drastically, probably making it more tragic) and the only character who is really an evil version of an existing one is dead/without a physical form. Becides if you want to see Gems fighting Gems canon seems to be heading that way and there was already a Mirror Fight with water clones. I don't really see how "another mirror fight, but with implied vampire powers" would be that much different. I could see how everyone would think the fullblood's counterparts were wasted in the story arc but I honestly couldn't think of anything with them that couldn't just already go for the Beachverse's selves.

Its Hurting My Eyes, I think that's it's name. A weird game with crossover and Johnny from The Room throws you and there's a Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann poster in it.

"Even when trapped by karma's cycle, the dreams we left behind will open the door! Even if the universe goes against us, our seething blood will cut through faith! We'll pierce through time and space and defy all who withhold us to grip hold of our path! TENGEN TOPPA... GURREN LAGANN! JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE?"
