Tropers / Lewa 0111

Hey everyone, Lewa0111 here! I am a Troper who is most well-known outside this website for my comedic Bionicle fanfictions found on BZPower. Though most of my works have drifted due to lack of time for updates, I'm still around (I swear!!) and will get around to writing them. Eventually. My works run the gamut from mostly plot-focused with comedic elements, to entirely comedy-based with an Excuse Plot, to Bionicle-themed parodies of other media, and to even the occasional serious story (though these are extremely rare.)

The username here is the same as mine on BZP, coming from my favorite Bionicle character, Lewa (Toa of Air) and a few random numbers that looked cool because when I was little and first came up with the name, plain old "Lewa" was obviously taken. So I typed a few numbers and it kinda stuck. I'm also known as Lewa# for short.

Outside of the internet, I have a lot of interests, mostly anything with a good story and lots of action and adventure. I'm also a musician and a recent college graduate who hopes to eventually get into medical school once I can afford it. I've also been working on writing a science fiction novel in my spare time, which I hope to get published someday. In summation, I have a lot of hopes. XD

But enough about me! If you're here, you are either very bored or are looking for tropes about my Bionicle comedies, so here's a few links to the current "active" (read: updated within the past year) ones:

The Nuva Inn: Current remake of my very first comedy and sort of the Codifier for most everything in my comedy multiverse as a whole. Has more of an Excuse Plot feel and focuses on the Toa Nuva (and various other characters) trying to run a hotel, because Lewa wants to make money, and Hilarity Ensues.

Ask Matau!: Yes, the exclamation mark is part of the title. Ask Matau! is a remake of my second comedy, which is Exactly What It Says on the Tin: People submit questions for Toa Matau to answer, and he answers them via e-mail from his home, while fending off viruses, caring for his pet Visorak, and unsuccessfully hitting on Nokama. Another Excuse Plot comedy.

The BZ-Nui Hack Wars: A bit of a departure from my usual fare, this is a much more plot-focused work Very Loosely Based on a True Story of hackings that temporarily banned myself and many other members from the BZP forums several years ago, taking place in an oddly realized version of the Internet as a Bionicle-style island world. Most of the jokes might be hard to get without being familiar with Internet forums, if not BZPower specifically, though.

Mata Nova: A Bionicle-themed parody of the (unfortunately short-lived) TV show Terra Nova. This is also more plot-focused and attempts to justify the parody with the official Bionicle timeline...sorta.

There are also many less-active comedies on the old BZPower forums. Here’s a quick list (Warning: There’s a lot)

The Nuva Inn: Original topic for the first Nuva Inn. Warning: This version is very bad and was the first-ever thing I wrote. Hence the need for a remake.

Ask Matau! (Note: Link is currently not available due to BZP server reasons): Original topic for the first Ask Matau!. Just like with the first TNI, this version is hilariously bad. Thus, the remake.

AxXon: A comedy about Axonn (who changed the spelling of his name for spoof reasons) and some other characters running a gas station.

Comedicle: Also known as Quest for the Comedy Jokes of Power/QFTCJP, this is a BZPower-ish spoof of the entire BIONICLE storyline…Or, it would have been, anyway. Right now it’s barely into ’03 and will remain so until further notice. One of my most popular works.

The Bionicles And Me: (Shut up about the word “Bionicles.”) I, Lewa0111, live in my house as usual, except for some reason my Bionicle sets come to life and run around getting into zany adventures.

Ga-Metru School Musical: BIONICLE-themed spoof of High School Musical. Has a sequel as well that is currently hiding wherever the original Ask Matau! went off to.

(Everything below is currently not available as well.)

Crazy Bionicle Series: Group of one-shots involving groups of 2006 characters generally acting stupid.

Holiday Series: Holiday specials usually featuring characters from one or more of my other comedies.

Lewa0111’s School of Comedy: Ginormous crossover involving characters from more or less all of my main comedies going to school together for various reasons.

The Visorak on the Mysteries of BZP: Ask Matau! spin-off starring the six Visorak from that comedy as they come up with Epileptic Trees relating to various aspects of Bionicle and BZPower.

Noob Comedy Series: Three one-shots written in Stylistic Suck format.

Web of Silliness: Spoof of the third Bionicle film. Another one of my earliest works.

Island of Dume: Spoof of the first Bionicle Legends book; eventually discontinued once Comedicle was born.

Pokerahi: A Bionicle-related spoof of the Pokemon anime.

2009 Theories: Bionicle characters have accounts on the BZPower forums and debate theories about future storylines. As the name implies, this was written in 2008, and so all theories are regarding the 2009 storyline.

My comedies in general provide examples of the following:

  • Actor Allusion: Matau makes the occasional It's Over 9000 reference. His voice actor from the second and third Bionicle films is the same voice actor who said the immortal Dragon Ball Z line.
  • Aerith and Bob: While most of the characters have normal names, being canon Bionicle characters, recurring villain Bob the Pirate (pirate emoticon) is a literal Bob, and one of the few characters with a more-or-less normal name.
  • Affectionate Parody: I am, obviously, a big fan of Bionicle, as well as a fan of the targets of my other spoofs.
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: All over the place, but most notably Lewa as a very lazy "hero" who really just wants to get rich quick, Nokama as a Tsundere with a secret crush on Matau, and absolutely EVERYONE in Comedicle.
  • Attention Whore: Matau, so very much. Oohnorak tries to outdo Matau in this department, but isn't very good at it.
  • Author Avatar: Lewa0111 shows up in most comedies as an all-powerful Author Being who tends to abuse his powers just to mess with the characters or for other reasons. Apparently, each individual comedy has its own Lewa0111, as seen when the Lewa0111s from Ask Matau! and The Nuva Inn meet up.
  • Berserk Button: The running jokes involving randomly appearing characters tend to be caused by this. For Keetongu, it's someone copyrighting something (as he himself has copyrights copyrighted), for Turaga Matau, it's someone saying his catchphrase, etc.
  • Big Bad: Over my comedies as a whole, Bob the Pirate (pirate emoticon) comes the closest.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The "Noob Comedy Series" as a whole was this compared to the others, though there are several examples within the comedies themselves.
  • Bizarro Episode: The "Special Edition School's Out Chapters," originally written once every June, were this in The Nuva Inn, being considered strange even by the comedy's standards (which is really saying something).
  • Bizarro Universe: Whenever anyone ends up in the human world for some reason, they see it as being this.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: As though there is any wall to break anymore. Onua in TNI regularly argues with the narrator over things like the title of the chapter and the "The End" card being incorrectly spelled/punctuated, among other things.
  • Brick Joke: In The Nuva Inn, the end of one chapter features Kohrak-Kal, a Bohrok who had not been seen before in the comedy, showing up and pleading to be a character but being rejected. Several chapters later, Takanuva ends up with a Bohrok Charming Kit (It Makes Sense in Context). Guess who shows up when he uses the kit?
  • Butt-Monkey: Onewa and Pohatu. ...I swear I have nothing against Toa of Stone!
  • Call-Back: Occasionally, characters will make references to things that happened in an earlier chapter, often mentioning the chapter number specifically.
  • Captain Obvious: Literally: a superhero named Captain Obvious will usually appear to say "You're welcome!" in response to characters sarcastically muttering "thanks, Captain Obvious." He then immediately flies away.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Matau, so very much.
  • Catch-Phrase: Anyone who's read Nuva Inn or Ask Matau! can easily identify who says any and all of the following:
    • "Pie!"
    • "Chugalabanigerf!"
    • "Welcome to The Nuva Inn, can I take your order?"
    • "And now it's time for Ask Matau!..."
    • "I love exclamation points and question marks together!"
    • "Cheese!"
  • Character Exaggeration: If it isn't Alternate Character Interpretation, it's this. Matau is a prime example.
  • Christmas Special: Naturally, a few crop up in the Holiday Series, with the most recent being The Night Before Naming Day, featuring Matau, Nokama, Onua, and Tava (with various others chiming in) attempting to write a Bionicle-ized version of the famous Christmas poem. As usual, Hilarity Ensues.
  • Clip Show: The original Nuva Inn had the characters watching an in-universe one of these for their 50th Chapter celebration.
  • Continuity Nod: References to things about the characters from the official Bionicle storyline crop up every so often.
  • Couch Gag: In The Nuva Inn, the opening and closing sequences (before the title card and after the "The End" card, respectively) almost always feature Onua arguing or otherwise being annoyed with the narrator over some aspect of the chapter, the title, or both. Lampshaded several times when they actually end up agreeing on something instead.
  • Crossover: Besides Lewa#’s School of Comedy, a saga occurs between The Nuva Inn and Ask Matau! wherein the casts of both comedies meet and team up.
  • Departmentof Redundancy Department: Zeskii, a character from BZ-Nui Hack Wars, has "Redundancy is redundant!" as his catch phrase, triggered usually whenever someone does something redundant.
  • Didn't We Use This Joke Already?: Several times, but one particular example occurs in The Nuva Inn, when Tahu uses the "I Accidentally X" meme and Lewa comments that they did that joke in an earlier chapter. Tahu then protests that he wants to make the meme his catchphrase, but Lewa says it will never happen.
  • The Ditz: Pohatu, as well as Matau on occasion.
  • Drinking Game: Take a sip every time a character randomly appears, someone gets chased, or the fourth wall is broken. Two sips every time Keetongu says his catchphrase. (Applies to every single one of my comedies.)
  • Drives Like Crazy: Tahu and Matau.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: A weird version, but Lewa imitates Strakk from the fourth Bionicle film, which was released in late 2009. The chapter in question was written well past that date, but it was a remake, with the original chapter having been written in 2006. Lampshaded by Gali, naturally.
  • Eldritch Abomination: As in the original storyline, Tren Krom whenever he appears.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: Seems to be the eventual result of the "Pieism" takeover if the cast of TNI and Ask Matau! don't stop it.
  • Enemy Mine: Bob the Pirate (pirate emoticon) has teamed up with the heroes on a few occasions whenever a villain who isn't him threatens the comedy.
  • Evil Twin: The Rahkshi are this to the Toa Nuva as a whole. In The Nuva Inn, when the Rahkshi take over, there is an Evil Twin for every good character, including the author, narrator, and Caption Writing Guy!
  • Excuse Plot: About two-thirds of my comedies are this.
  • Family-Friendly Firearms: "Toa tools," not weapons. Parodied constantly.
  • Filk Song: Oddly enough, present in text-based comedies. The Toa have a Christmas song contest in The Nuva Inn, with new lyrics written for classic songs, and every song in High School Musical and its sequel get new lyrics in their respective parodies as well.
  • Flat "What.": Tahu says this when Gali explains what caused the reset at the beginning of the TNI remake.
  • Follow the Leader: The Nuva Inn spawned a few other hotel-based comedies, and of course Ask Matau! was originally this to the old comedy Ask Tahu. 2009 Theories also spawned a few imitators.
  • Fun with Subtitles: Suukorak, who speaks entirely in ellipses, has subtitles that translate what he is saying, but no one notices them until they are pointed out. It still takes Matau a while to notice even then.
  • Genre Savvy: Boggarak and Onua, for their respective comedies.
  • Hammerspace: All over the place, but special mention goes to Tava's ability to conjure seemingly infinite amounts of pies from nowhere (even before becoming a Toa of Pie) only to immediately eat them all.
  • Hiroshima as a Unit of Measure: Time is measured in chapters for the most part.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Often.
  • Inherently Funny Words: Pie/Pi.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Matau's "plans," as well as anything Tahu says or does.
  • IN SPACE!: One arc in the original TNI featured a trip to the moon...that quickly somehow turned into a Star Wars parody.
  • Insult Backfire: Matau often assumes words like "egotistical" and "arrogant" are compliments, though he doesn't know what they actually mean.
  • It's All About Me: Matau, as well as Lewa to a degree.
  • Lampshade Hanging: All over the place.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Happens at the beginning of the Nuva Inn remake; Gali is the only one who remembers the events of the original TNI in detail, then immediately forgets them all after explaining it.
  • Left the Background Music On: Onua tends to cause this, as he seems to carry around a boom box for no apparent reason, usually loaded with such C Ds as "Dramatic Music Vol. X," "Greatest Angel Choruses Y," and "Suspenseful Sound Effects."
  • Magnum Opus: I consider Comedicle to be this, though most seem to think it's The Nuva Inn instead.
  • Memetic Mutation: Original character Tava, as well as several of the general Lewa0111 running jokes, have started popping up in other comedies and places in the Bionicle fandom from time to time.
  • Metafiction: Ask Matau! is this even more so than the others, especially once it gets to the point where Matau collects merchandise from the Ask Matau! in-universe show, and even watches a DVD of "Ask Matau! season 1" at one point.
  • Milestone Celebration: TNI gets one for the 50th chapter. Which, due to a numbering error on my part, was actually the 54th chapter.
  • Motor Mouth: BEC, a fan-submitted character, talks like this whenever he is on a sugar high. Which is 99% of the time.
  • Mr. Exposition: When he/I am not busy messing with the characters, the in-universe Lewa0111 serves this role.
  • National Stereotypes: In-universe, with reference to the various Bionicle species/cities. Especially with fire-element characters and their constant pyromania.
  • No Fourth Wall: Pretty much a given. The author, narrator, and Caption Writing Guy interact with the characters regularly, and they often make reference to “chapters” (such as mentioning something happened “X chapters ago”).
  • Not So Different: Onewa and Matau.
  • Oh, Crap!: Every recipient of the Literal Elemental Mail in Ask Matau!; usually Onewa.
  • Overused Running Gag: I'll admit it, a lot of the jokes do get used quite often.
  • Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: How often do we really see any of the characters in The Nuva Inn or Ax Xon actually doing their jobs? Lampshaded in The Nuva Inn when, after 25 chapters, no one has any idea what Onua's job even was.
  • The Power of Friendship: Or unity, in Gali's case, but close enough.
  • Rage Against the Author: Onua, but especially Matau, in keeping with the concept that Ask Matau! is an in-universe show. Matau gets extremely annoyed with me whenever I take too long to write the next chapter. Who knows how he'll react once I come back from the current one...
  • The Remake: The Nuva Inn and Ask Matau! have each gotten one so far.
  • Remember the New Guy: Whenua shows up in the Ask Matau! remake, though his existence was never even acknowledged in the original.
  • Reset Button: This apparently caused the remake for The Nuva Inn, judging by Gali's comments at the beginning of the first chapter.
  • Rule of Funny: A good chunk of the jokes run on this.
  • Running Gag: Many, MANY of these within each individual comedy, but over the “Lewa0111iverse” as a whole, there is O RLY? who shows up to bop people who say his name over the head with a rubber mallet; Pohatu from The Nuva Inn, who shows up in other comedies when people use exclamation points and question marks together; Keetongu, who has copyrights copyrighted; and Cameo, who shows up for no real reason to play practical jokes on people, usually involving random electrical appliances.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Krekka THINKS he can do this, but fails miserably.
  • Schmuck Bait: The "Literal (insert element here) Mail" Matau and co. send to spammers. As soon as the recipient opens the attachment, it blasts them with said element.
  • He Is Not My Boyfriend: Nokama, about Matau. Matau begs to differ.
  • Shout-Out: All over the place.
  • Show Within a Show: Matau's In-Universe show is this.
  • Start My Own: Oohnorak tries to write his own comedy at one point, starring himself. It is immediately locked by the moderators.
  • The Stinger: Once an Episode in Nuva Inn, usually involving more Onua-Narrator banter.
  • Stylistic Suck: The "Noob Comedy Series."
  • Take That Me: The characters often make digs at my terrible Schedule Slip. I'm the one writing their dialogue, of course. Also, the discussion about my accidentally calling several chapters of the original TNI "Chapter 7" in a row.
  • The Wiki Rule: Made by my real-life and BZP friend Toa Gabriella as a birthday gift a few years back; can be found [[ here]]
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Tava and his pies. Strangely, he’s also a big fan of the number pi. Taken Up to Eleven when he starts a religion based on pie that gets out of hand. Roporak also has a cheese obsession.
  • Trade Snark: A Running Gag in Comedicle.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: Matau and Nokama.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Happened often in the original Nuva Inn; Lampshaded constantly in the remake whenever it happens.
