BitF City is a Play-by-Post Game occuring in the forums of Brawl in the Family. There are multiple characters participating. The main characters of the posters include: Professor SSBBrawler, Kiwi, Rac Wade, Manty, JanusAlpha and his alien companion Psi, Etaoin, the previously-unnamed-droid, the Cree, Roboguy and Crafty, Joe, Fauna, Flora, Ella, Glyde, and Fungus.However, due to various reasons, the main cast has shrank considerably. The remaining, active crew now consists of: Professor SSBBrawler and his young ward, NotarRoboguy and Crafty, Poppy the fairy, Boom, and Gaizo.It is about the eponymous city and its inhabitants, centering around their daily lives. However, none of their lives are normal in the slightest, with constant threats attacking the city, including aliens, villans, and even themselves. Even with all of this happening, the city always is left standing, though that has begun to change.As of late, the plot has begun to not involve as much destruction of the City and when the city is involved, there is destruction aplenty.Unfortunately, the first 500 or so pages were deleted due to some faulty coding, removing a large portion of the plot. Oddly enough, the removed content is still canon, creating a very confusing read for newcomers. It has been reopened, albeit with the post quality standard raised considerably. It has also been locked permanently on the BitF forums.A new RP called City Redux has begun, with a rebooted continuity and a lineup composed of Cityverse veterans and newcomers alike. The all-new cast includes: Basil, Architect, Seth, Alistair Dante, Lore Master Aeon, JoAnn/Martius, Check, Lee, and Vivian.
BitF City provides examples of:
Affably Evil: The nameless' methods of 'reproduction' and their usually callous personalities pretty much make them evil, but the one in the City genuinely wants to apologise for its previous actions.
Alternate Universe: The fourth dimension, which resulted in the creation of the Shadow Professor and Shadow Notar, along with Aro.
Big Eater: The Vorapalsnatker, a dragon-like being that lives in the tunnels of Deevil Mountain lives on a diet of un-nutritious foods, because of a polarity swap caused by Ultimateum radiation. It eats. A lot.
Blob Monster: The nameless creature, when it was inside the Nothing.
Blow You Away: One of Kukaki's three major Magic alignments that she uses is wind.
Redux character Basil also has this power.
Calling Your Attacks: Done often by characters controlled by the user Swervestar. This has been done by, at minimum, Avlana, Rain, Ezekiel, Bola, and even Swerve himself.
Book Dumb: Manty. While he seems too dumb to live on the outside, he is actually a highly gifted individual (he skipped three grades and plays the keyboard very nicely).
Broken Record: An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion. An Onion.
Camp Gay: Sinnet. Pushed even farther when, on the day before Valentine's Day, he sends Roboguy a text message about a "special surprise" at Triglo Island.
Charm Person: Marissa and Kukaki are these, apparently, using infatuation caused either through their beauty or from Love Magic to keep foes distracted. It's easy for Kukaki sinceshe'spromiscuous. Marissa only uses hers on enemies because she finds their reactions funny. Valencia has been known to dabble in this, but not as often.
During one of King Deevil's raids on the City, he fires off so many cannons it makes a literal bullet hell. Rain asks if Poppy had ever played Touhou, implying she'd need skills in an actual bullet hell game to weave through the fire. Poppy says no, but Avlana says she's played some of the Touhou fighting games. Lampshaded when Bola says "You're completely missing the point..."
Right before the wipe, right before Deevil's castle exploded, the Future Professor said, "This castle's gonna blow..." to which the Games Master responded, "Yeah, this place sucks pretty bad."
Janus and Psi can fuse together to form 'Janus Shade', but each time they do so, the darkness that forms Psi's body further pervades Janus' mind, making his emotions more unstable and his moral boundaries increasingly unclear.
Dark Virus is also described to be very similar to this.
CrossPlayer: Swerve Star, despite being male, has mostly female characters. However, his user representation is still male.
Cute Witch: Arguably subverted with Analaya. She's an adorable 11 year old girl, but she has gray-ish hair and a large, unusual birthmark. Plus, she plays with frogs and toads. Other than those few details, she's very cute.
Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Ralph has a fair few metal parts. He's also unashamedly pure Id. Though this is probably more to do with the lack of anaesthetic during the installation of his cybernetics. [[supersecretspoiler:And because he has the soul of Raphael, a Slaughterer.]]
Emotion Eater: Black Wade used to feed off Rac Wade's inner dark mana, which is accelerated whenever he feels angry, sad, or frightened. When those emotions were sealed, Black Wade was able to draw enough power to become the dominant personality.
Shades, the species that Psi belongs to, are simply dark magic given sentience and an indefinite form. Due to their volatile nature, their emotions are unstable and they get into fights easily. Their planet is embroiled in constant war, and even close friends can end up as opponents. They're also particularly susceptible to mind control, often of the partial variety.
Professor SSBBrawler. A being of pure energy, it can be used to enhance his strength and bring life to others, and various unknown uses.
Order and the other Shadows are formed of Light and Nothing (yes, they're differentiated with capitals), and can change shape somewhat.
Y'know, what with the Shades being dark, and the Everians being light...would Psi and Professor's theoretical love-child be a Shadow?
Everybody Was Kung-Fu Fighting: Fanterra is like this. The aim of that world is to appear like modern day society, but with magic and weapons and inhuman stuff.
Excuse Me While I Multitask: Even when she doesn't attack with her gum, Marissa blows bubbles with it during battle. Murasashi blows bubbles while doing everything BUT fighting, unless, of course, she's using the bubble for an attack. Also, Illia sometimes eats while she fights. Swerve enjoys chatting while he fights, but not as a free action, instead doing both simelotaneously.
Expy: Every Basement Monster bears an at least slight resemblance to the citizens.
There are Humans, Robots, Everians, Triglonians, and other people from various worlds. Swerve Star's characters are from a world that's already a Fantasy Melting Pot, and from it comes various creatures such as Fairies, Witches, Succubi, and Vampires.
Unreality also has a metric poo-ton of species, though most of these are kept separate from each other.
Flanderization: Manty went from generally friendly and an occasional jerk (to enemies) to a huge Jerkass with a penchant for swearing and a terrible attitude to new friends. The introduction of Jay has slowed this down, however. Also, Sinnet went from bright yet sometimes forgetful to a complete ditz, showing very little to no brightness.
The Future Professor from 200 years in the future.
Evil Me Scares Me: This is even more specific, as the Future Professor is, in fact, evil.
Genki Girl: Flora is like this, especially when she's with her friend, Juniper.
Genre Savvy: Psi, Janus' alien companion, who always marvels at the convenience of the Professor's inventions, and Janus himself, who is fully aware of the fact that barely a day can ever pass without something big happening.
Harmless Freezing: Avlana's Cold Magic can freeze targets. She fires a blizzard at Dracobliss and freezes her from the shoulders down. Avlana then says everything she wants to say, then after coming to an agreement with her, she thaws out Dracobliss almost instantly with no lasting damage.
Heel-Face Turn: A bit of backstory, here: Jay was originally one of Deevil's henchmen. He got in the way of Manty so much, that the reason he converted to the good side was seeing the poor mantis struggling to walk after one of their fights.
Kukaki and Illia. Kukaki and Illia fight for good, despite truly being evil. Succubi from their world also don't need to feed, and can feed on only the physical result and cause no harm if they desire. Kukaki appears to still act like an S-L-U know what, but Illia seems to act normal in this regard.
Jocelyn, also recently introduced, is a Succubus, but she's a knight. She acts mostly emotionless instead of seductive... Unless she's alone with Illia.
Hollywood Nerd: Alex, type 2. He's a technological genius, but he has a girlfriend and he's considerably good-looking.
I Need A Drink: When she says her last goodbye to Xavier, Valencia says that she wants a drink from the HP Bar. She doesn't specify what kind, but Swerve planned to make her get something alcoholic since "[She's] 106 years old, [she] can take it." Of course, it doesn't actually happen, seeing as when she gets to the HP Bar, it's still in ruins from the fight where Kirzal got angry at Ralph.
Janus is cold and indifferent to strangers, often outright antagonistic. But to those who somehow manage to gain his trust, he's loyal to the end. Even then, however, he is rather snarky and often speaks harshly.
King Deevil, despite hating Manty to the point of an obsession of trying to kill him, has done some nice things once in a while.
Made of Iron: Manty can be shot several times, hit in the chest with a 15-pound weight bar, have his eye gouged out by a lacrosse ball, fall into a propane explosion, and get his head chopped off and still keep going.
Magic Hat: Taken to an extreme with Joe's hat. It houses an entire world within it, including a warehouse where the hat initially drops off in. Fauna will eventually obtain one as well(possibly from her dad, Joe).
Jay has a rather normal, if not slightly athletic physique, but is probably the physically strongest character out of the cast.
It IS possible that Avlana is stronger, but she was powered by rage when she punched a hole in the brick wall, so it's debatable. Of course, Jay hasn't really had a chance to show his full potential, so... Anyway, a few of Swerve Star's characters show rather powerful strength despite looking rather weak. Of course, their attacks COULD be backed by magic, so again, it's debatable.
It's also noted that Fauna is insanely strong as well. Perhaps not as strong as Jay, but still strong enough to lift up objects and the like several times her weight.
Morty is yet another character who is positively puny, but packs a punch.
There's a few. Joe's Beast Form, Marissa's "Beast Siren" Form, and Crimson has a couple...
Fauna also has one, she just never uses it unless she has good reason, which is rare.
Oral Fixation: Murasashi is virtually never seen without bubblegum, and neither is Bola to a (somewhat) lesser extent. Could be handwaved in that it also functions as a weapon. Oh, and Marissa likes gum too.
Illia is constantly eating, and says she just likes eating especially chewy food and food you really have to bite. Plus, she likes Watermelon Seed Spitting.
Our Vampires Are Different: Rain the Vampire detests drinking blood. She prefers Cherry Soda. Also, sunlight doesn't effect her at all. And she claims to hate Twilight.
It's actually power, BTW. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you obviously haven't seen what Kukaki can do when she blows a kiss. IT EXPLODES. It's referred to as Love Magic. Bola has claimed to be able to use Love Magic, too, but as of yet has not.
It's what Fauna's Sugar Rush is powered by.
Valencia, being a nature spirit that supposedly represents Valentine's Day in some way, naturally has great skill in Love Magic, too.
Marissa uses it, too. Mostly because she likes how enemies react to it.
Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Ezekiel. He tends to go in and out of overly verbose language. It's gotten to the point where Bola automatically "translates" the majority of the stuff he says without being asked.
Serious Business: Played around with. It's arguably not used, but Avlana said the line, and I quote "And before anyone asks, this whole 'first kiss' crap is serious business!"
Shrinking Violet: Illia, sort of. It's not because she's shy, it's more because she doesn't pay attention. Usually, she'll immediately shows her sweet side once you say her name or otherwise directly address her. (Though, that side can be fairly blunt, too)
All of the Shades are named after the letters of the Greek alphabet. The three known examples are Janus' companion Psi, his dead best friend Gamma, and GeneralSigma, the villain responsible for Gamma's death.
Avlana. She swoons sweetly whenever Rac is around, but can punch a hole in a brick wall.
Recently discovered with Jay. When he's not around somebody he loves, he's extremely grumpy and could probably bust a hole through a steel wall if he tried too hard.
The Unintelligible: Psi, who 'speaks' in a series of crackling noises that only Janus can understand. He is capable of using telepathy to communicate with others, though, so it's not really an obstacle.
An RP named BitF World started on 6 June 2012, taking place in Bit F City 10 years after the titular RP. It introduces new characters, as well as new users. It has also introduced a more organised plot system, which divides the story into chapters.
Noodle Implements / Noodle Incident: 'A series of unfortunate events triggered by a pair of pliers, three screws, a staple gun, nineteen and a half sandwiches (all bologna), and a smiley face drawn on a 2x4', which caused Doctor Schaden to go back in time in Episode 344.
