Trivia / Sonichu

  • Flip-Flop of God: Due to the fact that all the details of Sonichu really only exists in the author's head and is always subject to his whims and fancies at the time, virtually everything is subject to changes that really only make sense to Christian, and due to his autism, he assumes that the audience will automatically understand his intentions.
  • Name's the Same: Crystal Weston Chandler and Crystal Weston Chandler, Chris-Chan's sister and daughter respectively.
  • Schedule Slip: Many issues took up to a year to be completed.
  • Streisand Effect: Much of the comic was fueled by Chris's attempts to fight back after 4chan and Encyclopedia Dramatica tried to troll him, creating an infinite loop where he would create new material, which would lead to more trolling, which would lead to more material...
  • Tribute to Fido: Patti-Chan is based on Chris's dog, Patti.
  • Write Who You Know: Most of the characters that aren’t Pokémon or hedgehogs are derived from people the writer has met or “known” in real life. The closet thing to a completely original character that Chris came up with would be Count Graduon (who's supposed to be based on his feelings towards his High School Graduation).
  • Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: The Random Events Plot certainly owes to its creator doing everything on the fly, basically hearing the characters as they bump into his mind.
  • What Could Have Been: Metal Sonichu was planned to return while taken over by Count Graduon.
    • Silvana Rosechu's entire backstory was meant to be different. Silvana was to be a space-traveling Pikachu who crash landed on the moon, and was hit by the Rainbow created from the collision of Super Sonic and Pikachu, transforming her into a Rosechu with a Pikachu's tail. She would have created a spaceship out of the spare parts of her destroyed ship, and traveled to Earth to abduct all the Sonichu's on the planet, to fill the gap of loneliness she holds while being on the moon for so long. Because of outside influences however, the author has scrapped this backstory and created the Shapeshifting Silvana Rosechu we know today.
  • Why the Fandom Can't Have Nice Things: Chris stopped making Sonichu comics in February 2010 due to his (justifiable) belief that his fanbase consisted solely of trolls. He has stated that he feels the fanbase sabotaged his attempts to court a female acquaintance just so he can make more comics. While he drew and released some pages for the eleventh issue of the comic in September 2015, it is unclear if it will continue.
  • The Wiki Rule: CWCki, while mostly focusing on the bizarre life of its creator, also has a large section devoted to his comic.
