BANZAI PECAN: The Last Hope for the Young Century is an indie, fanservice-ladenbrawlerparody by SERIOUS☆IMPACT WORKS.Set in the year 20XX, Pecan Apple and her new boyfriend Cinnamon Basil were out a date one day until a leader for a group of succubi calling themselves the Sexilicous Seven appears out of nowhere and kidnaps Pecan's boyfriend, something about being the key to an even bigger plan. Not one to sit idly by and let these demonic harlots steal her boyfriend while releasing chaos unto the world, Pecan invokes the powers of the Banzaider, the "super-soldiers of justice", and transforms into the buxom, badasssuper-heroine of justice, Banzai Pecan.Development for the game started roughly in 2008 with a release window originally intended for a late summer 2008 release, with a rather minimalistic presentation with small and simple sprites. In 2009, the developers used a new engine for the game with improvements in the sprite-work and the game itself. On August 6th, 2012, the game was finally released for Windows PC and it is currently available on DESURA and Indievania.
Art Evolution: During its development in 2008 the game use small sprite and simplistic visuals, similar to Vigilante. In 2009, and the use the Multimedia Fusion engine, the sprite-work was retooled to use larger and higher resolution character sprites.
Ass Kicks You: One of Pecan's Stylish Finishers and her dash attack. Ash Bunny and the Hunny Bunnies can use their posterior to attack Pecan as well.
Meganekko: Pecan again when she's not fighting as Banzai Pecan, and Flan Nougatt.
The Merch: T-shirts and stickers with Pecan parodying Rosie the Riveter, another with Pecan shooting a Burning Star Shot, and one where Pecan facing off against Sugoi Maple are being sold at Red Bubble. A poster of the former can also be purchased.
Mercy Mode: An update adds a "Green Zone" difficulty which removes Jennies and Fire Bunnies from the game, you always start with full power and an auto-revive, and bosses will be weakened for you. The trade-off however means you miss out on the overall experience (cutscene, certain stages, etc.) and the final boss battle.
Mini-Game: A button-mashing shaved ice eating contest with a Hunny Bunny. Complete with a brain freeze meter.
This scene when Pecan tries to invoke her powers of the Banzaider to save Cinnamon Basil from Spicy Jalapina:
Pecan: "Banzai Brace Activate!" (An awkward silence from Flan, Spicy, and Cinnamon) Pecan: "Banzai Prism Power!" Flan: "Those don't work!" Pecan: "By the power of Grayskull!" Spicy: "..... (snicker)" Flan: "Give it up, Pecan. They won't work for you." Pecan: "Banzai Lavenda wouldn't give me a broken power-up. They have to work!" Spicy: "You're hilarious..." Hot Guy...? (Cinnamon): "For the love of God! Get out of here before she kills you!" Pecan: "Damn it! AAAAUGH! It's Banzai Time!Henshin-A-Banzai, baby! Shazam! Banzai Smash! Summon up the power of the Banzai! Armor of Banzai!"
To an extent, Lady Strawberry. She's obviously bonkers.
Statuesque Stunner: A few of the Sexilicous Seven like Sister Spearmint are taller than Pecan.
Stripperific: Let's just say "modesty" isn't a part of some these characters' vocabulary.
Super Mode: After being revived, Pecan's Awakened Mode before the final boss. Also, it is unlockable after beating the game.
Taunt Button: Not just a "flaunting" extra, but it actually ticksoff EVERYTHING in the game when you do that. In v1.2.0., it now fills up your Heat Meter similar to how taunting enemies in Bayonetta and Devil May Cry works.
Tempting Fate: Played for laughs when Lady Strawberry broke in the Taco Hut to kidnap Cinnamon Basil.
This Is a Drill: French Vanilla uses one during the Rapid Justice sequence, and she punishes the player for failing by using drilling them.
You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Spicy Jalapina, Sister Spearmint, and Lemon-Lime of the Sexilicous Seven have green hair. Ash Bunny has violet hair. Our heroine's faithful Fangirl and a friend of Pecan, Flan Nougatt, and the Sexilicous Seven's gun-toting Bitter Almond has Multicolored Hair.
Zettai Ryouiki: Sugoi Maple, Sister Spearment, Mistress Mocha, and Lady Strawberry all wears Thigh-High Boots. Red Devillettes also wear them as well. Lemon-Lime, Tartar, and Pecan in her normal form plays this trope straight with thigh-highs.
