Spoony committed suicide at the end of the Final Fantasy VIII review.Spoony had already been driven insane as the review approached the end, to the point where not only had he adopted the alter ego of Dr. Insano, he was now seeing him as if he was a separate person. The end of the review pushed him over the edge, and he killed himself, thinking in his own mind that it was Insano killing him using Squall as an assassin.
Dr. Insano's multiple choice past is due to Linkara punching the wall playing out all at once.Although Linkara remembers Insano being a woman, Insano wasn't just a woman. s/he was many things, but the punching of reality caused Linkara to forget all but the second to last and the last. We're watching him at various altered timelines.
Dr. Insano is a memetic life-formSpoony has said several times that Insano is an idea, That there is no continuity, there is only Insano. Being a memetic life form explains this, and also explains why he can possess others on occasion, though Spoony is his favourite. Of course mentioning Insano tends to mean "SCIENCE!!!" ..he turns up.
The Spoony that appears in Kickassia is a clone.Linkara created more than one clone of Spoony. One of the clones went back in time and became Dr. Insano (not necessarily in that order). But in any case, he shows up in Spoony's new place to review The Clones of Bruce Lee with him and Spencer D. Bum (another Spoony clone). Later on, this particular clone decided to give up being Dr. Insano and be Spoony again. He ends up being the one who answers the Nostalgia Critic's call, and of course, at the urging of Angry Joe, fell off the 'Insano' wagon and became Dr. Insano again. Supposedly, he 'got better', but then he showed up along with a number of alternate universe Insanos during the Warrior #2 chaos.
There really is an Black Lantern Insano.And is More Evil and More Insane than the both of them.
All three alive Insanos are different personality-wise.The one living with Spoony, though still a bit evil, is more toned down thanks to his son, Mechakara aside. the Chronal-Locked one is murderous and planning Spoony's murder because he spent 100 years in that mad state, losing all traces of humanity and wanting to kill his last bit. Finally the split personality is the medium, the original unaltered Insano.
The Cop who Beats the Crap Out of Insano in the Ferris Bueller Review is Officer Spoony from the SWAT IV Reviews
Spoony came back to life because Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs screwed up again.Well that is technically what killed Spoony, wasn't it? It's definitely something DoIOF would do.
Spoony is an avatar of SlaaneshSee Spooning With Spoony
There is but one Insano, and he was ALWAYS a clone!When Linkara was making the Spoony clones, one prototype clone went bonkers and immediately made a machine that shot him back in time. The explosion from that leap at least helped fracture reality so that Harvey Finevoice and 90's Kid were sent to the present and fictional characters could appear in the reviews of AVGN, NC, Linkara and Spoony. Insano arrives in the past and appears in the first 'Previously on AT4W'. Presumably he told Spoony that he was the future original, explaining the line "You can't kill me! YOU'RE me!" Eventually he managed to suppress his dark side enough to be a normal Spoony clone. Come the events of Kickassia, Spoony was actually too busy to come and so sent 'Insano' in his stead. Since then, Insano has been back to normal, only experiencing brief moments of lucidity.
Doctor Insano never taught Spoony about science after Final Fantasy 8When Insano came from the future, he simply ran away and shaved his hair. There are now three Spoonys: Black Lantern Spoony, Clone Sponny, and Jekyll and Hyde Spoony (aka Insano). Jekyll and Hyde Spoony is the Spoony that appeared in Kickassia... all other origin stories for Insano actually incorporate aspects of Black Lantern Spoony's origin/lies spread by Insano.
Spoony is crazy and imagining the weird stuff happening to himIn Spoony's earliest reviews, there were no unusual events happening around him, he more or less just talked about the games, and he seemed fairly calm and stable in comparison to his later work. However, as he continually subjected himself to increasingly bad games and movies, his mind began to fracture and he became paranoid and started hallucinating. The reviews themselves are real, but the mad scientists, famous wrestlers and fictional characters attacking him are all imaginary. The other TGWTG reviewers humor him so he doesn't completely snap. Remember that in-character he's confessed to at least two killing sprees.
Spoony will get to review Final Fantasy XV immediately after release.He's getting through Final Fantasy X much faster than Final Fantasy VIII, and will likely skip Final Fantasy XI (the MMO) and Final Fantasy X-2 (not a true installment). Final Fantasy XII and Final Fantasy XIII will likely take a total of five years for him to finish, which will coincidentally be the amount time it takes for XV to come out. Spoony would have to skip Final Fantasy XIV (another MMO) and XIII-Versus (will probably come out after XV) for this to work. Reviewing XV when it's released will allow Spoony to tear it a new one as before it's fanbase even matures.
One of the Multiverse Dr. Insanos is in the Pokémon world.During the episode A.I. Warrior Porigon (The one which was banned after causing seizures in several children in Japan) we are introduced to the scientist who created the Pokemon transfer system in the Pokemon Centers. He has the spiral glasses, talks about science and is crazy. Admittedly he seems to be a good guy but in a Multiverse of Insanos there are likely a few of them here and there. Take a look at a screenshot of him here◊. Plus, you never know when Dr. Insano will show up to take over the world with SCIENCE!
Spoony will get a Green Lantern Red Ring of Rage.Considering that Chuckles has a Yellow Ring of Fear and Real Spoony has a Black Ring of Death. If it keeps up, it may end up one epic fight with other Ring Holders (and let's face it...when you think Spoony, you don't think the Blue ring, that's for sure.)
Spoony never left the Blag'ole.This would explain the recent Highlander related stuff, the Blag'ole is showing him his worst nightmare.
In the year 2021 Spoony will change his name to Stormy.And anyone looking for can find him in the sealab, underneath the water.
Dr. Insano will run for re-election against Angry Joe in the 2012 election.And it will be the most epic cross over since Kickassia!
Spoony is on Lord Vyce's ShipSpoony teleported shortly before Lord Vyce's ship appeared in our dimension. It's possible that Lord Vyce latched on to the transport signal in order to get into our world, and now has Spoony as a hostage in case he needs leverage with Linkara. Alternatively, the ship could have simply got in the way of the signal and Vyce doesn't know Spoony is on his ship, which could lead to a Die Hard on an X situation.
The SCIENCE! that Insano refers to is not actual science as we understand it, it's the name a deity that Insano is the last worshiper of.That isn't a generic mad scientist costume, it's the ancient traditional raiment of a priest of SCIENCE! Calling upon the name of SCIENCE! grants his followers strength and the power to warp reality at the cost of their sanity. The resemblance to real scientists is due to lingering memories of the church of SCIENCE! This explains his insistence that he's a "real" scientist despite never explaining how anything works.
There will be a war of the Lantern Rings at some point...Nearly all of Spoony's characters have lantern rings of some sort (Black Lantern Spoony may no longer be a factor, but Chuckles and the Gatekeeper have Yellow Rings, and Insano had a Green Ring in the Dungeon Master review, and above you can see someone guessed Spoony himself would come into possession of a Red Ring) Who knows what this could mean review wise, but it hardly seems coincidence that everyone is suddenly getting their hands on those things.
Every Insano that has appeared is from a different continuityWe know of at least these different aspects of Dr. Insano:
Black Lantern Spoony still exists.We saw in Brightest Day that the resurrected still had traces of their Black Lantern selves. And Black Lantern Spoony wasn't eradicated, rather merged with Spoony Beta. Its pretty damn unlikely Spoony isn't suffering any side-effects, and just like the Insano personality Black Lantern Spoony becomes a split personality. And he wants his own body...
The Gatekeeper is/was a Guardian of The Universe.Its why he's able to manipulate the various rings, even if who they go to makes little sense(the Ultimate Warrior got a red ring, despite the fact red rings go to those who develop rage through personal loss/pain: Warrior is just nucking futs.) Either The Gatekeeper was banished from the main DCU, or the Guardians of The Universe exist in the Channel Awesome-verse as well(along with Doctor Who and Power Rangers).
Dr. Insano is Dr. Insano.I mean really people.
Spoony is somehow related to Hugh Laurie.In this video, (start at 1:25) younger Hugh Laurie looks oddly like Spoony, as well as showing a couple very familiar-looking mannerisms. Maybe it's just a comedy thing, but this sounds way cooler.
Possible wielders of the power rings.
Hulk Hogan and or Spoony did something ungodly horrible to The Ultimate WarriorConsidering the Red Rings are fueled by the rage of loss, this seems obvious. And since the two people he's concerned might interrupt the summoning of the Guardian are said individuals (most likely The Hulkster, or at least Spoony's parody version of him) his rage is most likely centered towards one of them.
When Spoony reviews Final Fantasy XIII...He'll randomly scream "MA-TI!!!" and break down in tears as a Call Back to the ending of Suburban Knights, where he is seen doing that exact thing.
The black figure at the end of Final Fantasy X-2 part 1 is Sephiroth or Reno.
The black figure at the end of Final Fantasy X-2 part 1 is...
During the Final Fantasy X-2 review, someone will use a Dr. Insano dresssphere.In part one he complained the hell out of dressspheres, so someone will use one to piss him off. And it will be a dresssphere created by Dr. Insano to transform the user into Dr. Insano, or an Insano version of the user. Complete with FOR SCIENCE! of course.
The Ultimate Warrior is a Humanoid Abomination.Think about it: his Warrior Comic has warped hyperspace itself. It defies all causality and logic. It almost remade the multiverse. Dr Insano even calls it the Anti-Comic Equation. Jame Hellwig isn't a proper human at all, but rather the embodiment of insanity and non-logic in human form. The reason why reality doesn't fall apart by his mere existence is because, since insanity and non-logic isn't tangible, it needs an outlet in the form of ideas. Aka comics. The Ultimate Warrior may have always been this, or he's simply so insane he became a cosmic horror. Or he's descended from Nyarlathotep.
Sepiroth is using Spoony's hatred of the series to power a new killer meteor.And it will lead to Spoony having to admit even though he's done nothing but constantly bitch about the series since his career started, he still loves the series.
Lighting won't try to kill Spoony
Sephiroth is seeking revenge for Spoony's insulting of Final Fantasy VII and its, and, more importantly, his, fans in one episode of the VIII reviewHis saving Spoony was Cruel Mercy, as he knows that keeping Spoony alive but forcing him to review XIII is greater punishment than killing him. He hasn't shown up until now because he hasn't needed to.
Spooniroth's reason for making him do Final Fantasy XIIIHe's trying to keep him busy enough for him not to tear apart the Compliation, mainly Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII or Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.
Spoony is trapped in a virtual world, that is slowly becoming unstable.Based on the end of the Game Over review. The Spoony Experiment is to see how a person can handle living in a world populated by fictional characters and oddballs like Dr Insano. Whoever controls this world is slowly losing control; the conflicting origins of Dr Insano were the first sign, but it's getting worse with events such as the finale of the Final Fantasy X-2 review, with Yuna nearly killing Spoony. That's why Sephiroth was sent in; to try and reel come control back in. Burton is actually a tool used to keep the virtual world stable, as well as to monitor Spoony; when he went missing, it was to be properly recalibrated to account for the new events in an attempt to retain control. The Meteor Sephiroth saw at the end of the FFX2 review? It's the start of the virtual world's total breakdown.
Dr. Insano is Spoony's father.Hence the title The Spoony Experiment. Insano conducted an experiment in which he raised his son, as Spoony puts it, on video games and action movies to see what kind of person he would turn out as, all in the name of SCIENCE!. The reason they don't acknowledge it is because the experiment is still ongoing - Insano doesn't want to affect the results by telling his test subject the truth about his life.
All the drama with TGWTG and Spoony's change in out of character attitude is all to tie into the Ultima 9: Ascension review.Since it does seem to have some pretty apocalyptic vibes coming off it, and there does seem to be a lot of emphasis in the review about how things have changed and seemingly worsened for Spoony as time goes by. At least, that's what this Troper hopes. Because it might mean a happy resolution to all the conflict that's played out.
The Avatar Saga is part of an extended crossover with Linkara's current storyline.
Spoony is indoctrinated.During the Sanity Slippage moment about ten minutes into the second half of his The Ring Terrors Realm review, one of the noises used for the static cuts is a Reaper siren.
Sephiroth has trapped Spoony in the Virtual Reality since Final Fantasy VIIIIt would make more than enough sense why all the different characters are coming alive and wanting to kill Spoony since, before the FFVIII Finale, he had never experienced those sort of encounters before. Now, they're just normal to him. Sephiroth might have also found out how to harness Spoony's rage somehow to use it with that black comet, with his rage towards bad video games and movies, but his full potential of rage coming from the Final Fantasy (and subsequently Ultima 9) games and with his rage becoming more and more stronger with each iteration, his final fuel for the black comet is Final Fantasy XIII. This could also explain the ending for the first few parts of the Final Fantasy X-2 review, where we see Sephiroth looking at multiple screens of staticy images that form the TSE logo, it's him looking at multiple reviews that Spoony is doing in the VR world.
When we get to the end of the FF 13 review, Lightning will be played by April
Linkara will be a major part of the Spoony arc.Okay, this isn't really that wild... Nightmare Fuel vision of the future which had a Red Lantern Spoony in it. As for how it could go:
Spoony's in a Lotus-Eater Machine like Minority Report
The Minority Report red ball gag will make a comeback when he does Final Fantasy XVThe two main characters are apparently going to have the ability to forsee people's deaths, so it'll be fitting. And almost certainly far away enough that it won't feel tired.
Spoony's cry of BETRAYAL! is the primary reason we got a real X-Com game.Let's face it: his reaction at the initial reveal of a sixties themes FPS freaked out Angry Joe. This got the attention of the development team who correctly anticipated the internet nerdrage to come and repurposed the game into its own story and created a second game that became the critical success X-Com reboot.
Spoony will learn of Sephiroth's plan in Final Fantasy XIII-2But he won't be able to stop it until the Lightning Return's review. Explaining the delays, he's waiting fro the game to come out so he can review it. And just like in the game Spoony will be on a time limit before the end of the world.
The Black Hole of Board Games was a self-imposed mental prisonSpoony was trapped reviewing crappy VCR games not because of an external force, but because of his own compulsion, and finally escaped when Gone Birding! broke him and he realized that he doesn't have to do this.
Spoony's enemy for the FFXIII review will be Officer Reynolds.It'll be revealed that he's the ultimate evil, and that all those times he said "You're in my way" were actually threats, as Spoony was the person standing it his way of complete domination.
The entire ongoing story about Sephiroth trying to force him to destroy the world with his hatred is all a build up to a review of Final Fantasy 7Spoony started the Final Fantasy review series by criticising a beloved game nobody else dared to, this is what led to his large increase in popularity and was one of the things he's best known for. However he's mentioned that as he's continued on in the series the fans are now largely agreeing with everything he has to say, he's not reviewing them so much as just repeating what the bulk of the fandom already thinks. This will result in him 'returning to his roots' and reviewing Final Fantasy 7, the most popular game of the series, likely as a screw you to Sephiroth for the whole thing, and ripping into every flaw the game has, same as he did to 8 when he first started. Not only will this upset the fanboys but the review will be much less time consuming since he's already well aware of the plot to 7 and can find full playthroughs of anything he could want to see already online.
