* CreatorsPest: It's rather clear Chris hates Bananasauros, who was designed by a Patreon backer. Chris wrote him out of the comic in the same episode he was introduced, and called the paid advertisement for the Bananasauros video game "out-of-context, outdated and juvenile" on the same page as the ad itself.
* DearNegativeReader: In Issue 10, [[Series/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw Marvey]] [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Blaziken]] [[http://sonichu.com/w/images/0/09/SchuComic10P88.jpg non-subtly calls out those who complained]] about the [[ScheduleSlip lack of updates]].
* FlipFlopOfGod: Due to the fact that all the details of ''Sonichu'' really only exist in the author's head and are always subject to his whims and fancies at the time, virtually everything is subject to changes that really only make sense to Christian. He seems to assume that the audience will automatically understand his intentions.
* InMemoriam: ''Sonichu'' 12 had Chris dedicating the issue to his late father.
** His tribute to his dog, Patti as well.
* NamesTheSame: Crystal Weston Chandler and Crystal Weston Chandler, Chris-Chan's twin sister in the comic and future daughter respectively.
* OldShame: Present-day Chris' feelings about how he handled the guys behind Asperchu and Alec Benson Leary, his over-the-top homophobia, and a few other things. However, some feel his contrition can also be more self-serving than genuine remorse (but it's better than nothing).
* OneBookAuthor: The only webcomic by Christian Weston Chandler. Given that it's one of the most hated webcomics of all time, Chris himself is one of the most infamous members of the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' fandom (if not the ''entire'' internet, to the extent people may know who he is even if they have only vaguely heard of the webcomic), and the numerous memes mocking Sonic, it's not surprising.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Although a lot of events and characters are inspired by Chris's real life, one notable incident would be when a troll bought ad server space on Chris's wiki and filled it with gay porn and offensive art in order to force Chris to kill off a character taken from his "fan" art and genderflipped without his permission.
* RealitySubtext: Around 2016, Chris started identifying (no one knows if it's true) as a Transgender Lesbian. This lead to their AuthorAvatar becoming a female and Robes Rosee evolving into Robert Rosechu.
* SavedFromDevelopmentHell: ''Sonichu'' issue #11 was on a hiatus with little work completed for over six years. Financial motives and Chris finding new inspiration in the LGBTQ sector finally brought the series back.
* ScheduleSlip: Many issues took up to a year to be completed. The Christmas Special, featured in ''Sonichu'' #11, was completed ''eight years'' after it had been started (it was originally illustrated in 2009; after a sudden burst of motivation, Chris-Chan began work on the comic again in 2017).
* StreisandEffect: Much of the comic was fueled by Chris's attempts to fight back after Website/FourChan 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...
* TributeToFido: Patti-Chan is based on Chris's deceased dog, Patti.
* WeirdAlEffect: Many people didn't realize that the bizarre CutawayGag with Chris's fat(ter) lookalike "Sammy" in Issue #7 is a parody of ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters''' TransformationSequence.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: Most of the characters that aren’t Pokémon or hedgehogs are derived from people the writer has met or “known” in real life. The closest 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).
* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: The RandomEventsPlot certainly owes to its creator doing everything on the fly, [[IJustWriteTheThing basically hearing the characters as they bump into his mind]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** 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.
** Chris' original plan for Issue 9 involved Punchy and Layla Flaaffy having sex in the handicapped stall of the women's bathroom at the UsefulNotes/McDonalds substitute [=CWCee=] Dees, and Reginald Sneasel [[InterruptedIntimacy walking in on them]] and slashing Punchy's tires.
** [[https://sonichu.com/cwcki/DStecks#Donation As noted here]], a Canadian Website/{{YouTube}}r by the name of [=DStecks=] who had become rather popular due to reviewing Sonichu started to have mixed feelings on his reviews of all of Chris's Sonichu comics (somewhat bordering on OldShame), so after reviewing issue 10, he singlehandedly financed the production of issue 11 - as he was the sole executive producer, he could not review issue 11 without violating personal ethics ([[FlipFlopOfGod only to do so a few months later]] as a part of reviewing the last thing he was not involved in the production of, the Sonichu Christmas special). [=DStecks=] donated $1,000[[note]]technically, [=DStecks=] donated a total of $1,200, from a combination of his own savings and Patreon money; however, due to the differences in exchange rates between USD and CAD, the end donation was around $1,000[[/note]], and as a result, Chris was obligated to create ''100'' pages, but failed to deliver on his end, only producing 16 pages[[note]]it's possible that while this was enough for DStecks to decide against doing a seperate video on issue 11, Chris's failure to produce the other 84 pages was not enough to make him decide against showing the 16 pages in the video[[/note]]. Who knows what the end result for issue 11 would've been like had Chris actually drawn all 100 pages?
** The 13th issue was going to have a crossover with ''WebVideo/PlanetDolan'', but outward drama involving some of the castmates changes it to involve a crossover with ''My Little Pony'' instead.
* WhyTheFandomCantHaveNiceThings: Chris stopped making ''Sonichu'' comics in February 2010 due to his (justifiable) belief that his fanbase consisted solely of [[{{Troll}} 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 was unclear if it will continue. As of May 2017, Chris appeared to have start work and added more pages for the eleventh issue, and the cover for a twelfth comic was created. At the end of June, the 11th issue is [[SavedFromDevelopmentHell finally completed after almost eight years]].
* TheWikiRule:
** [[http://www.sonichu.com/cwcki/Sonichu_%28comic%29 The CWCki]], while mostly focusing on the bizarre life of its creator, also has large sections devoted to his comic. Be warned though, it can be ''very'' negative.
** Chris also created his own official wiki called the [=CWCipedia=]. It's officially dead, but an archived version can be found [[http://archive.sonichu.com/cwcipedia/index.php?title=Main_Page here]].
