Note that the
archives only go up to page 252, further pages can be found on
ObstinateMelon's Deviantart page. Contains examples of: Affectionate Parody Alt Text: Only on the first few pages, then they're replaced by real text and are absent completely from the deviantART page. Ambiguously Gay: Cloud has his slips every now and then, much to Tifa's irritation. Ascended Extra: Johnny. Beautiful All Along: Averted by Aeris, if Cloud's reaction (or lack thereof) is any indication. "Blind Idiot" Translation: Referenced every now and then. Aeris's "This guy are sick" line is left intact, coupled with the derpiest expression imaginable. Berserk Button: President Shinra flips out when Barret spits on him. Brick Joke/ Chekhov's Gun: Jessie's ID card Also, Cloud sending Yuffie flying during the battle with Bottomswell. The Cameo: Jeez. *Deep breath*, Bomberman, Bomb Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, Firion, Bartz, Ultros, Frog, Solid Snake, Lightning, Mario, Edgar and Sazh just to start with. Cat Fight: Aeris and Tifa at the end of the Midgar arc. A Mud Wrestling fight between Aeris and Elena is later denied. Chivalrous Pervert: Cloud. Oh Cloud. Chocolate Baby: One of the kids Mog and Mogrita have is yellow, unlike the other white ones.
Aeris: "Mogrita, you WHORE!" Cloudcuckoolander: Aeris. It is at least given some explanation due to her growing up entirely in Midgar; a lot of the things the party sees is new to her. Death Glare: Sephiroth literally does one in Cloud's flashback. It makes a dragon's head explode. Destruction Equals Off Switch/ Cutting the Knot: One strip has Cloud stab a control console to make a door open. In the game, one has to complete an irritating puzzle to open said door. Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: At the Train Graveyard, Tifa fights off Doomtrain by performing a full suplex on it. Cloud and Aeris are utterly awestruck by the sight (and in the former's case, aroused). The Ditz: Aeris. Doomed by Canon: Aeris is, of course, going to die. Like nearly everything else, this is Played for Laughs. Fan Disservice: Hojo in Costa del Sol. Tifa and Aeris even cast blind on themselves. Genki Girl: Aeris, surprisingly enough. Gilligan Cut: Cloud plays Yuffie in Street fighter. Giving Up On Logic: Cloud does it at the end of this comic. He keeps falling into the major error of trying to understand the universe he's stuck in. Unfortunately, that's not gonna happen. Gory Discretion Shot: Poor Wedge... But he lives! ...well, until everyone in the sector gets crushed. Biggs gets one when he blows himself up with a grenade to take out several troops in pursuit of the heroes. Groin Attack: First Rufus and later 'Sephiroth' do this to Cloud. Hello, Nurse!: Unlike the original game, people tend to notice that Tifa is unusually buxom and Stripperiffic. Actually lampshaded by Cloud at one point: Cloud:
, Tifa! What are you wearing?!"
"You don't like it? But business has nearly doubled!"
This gets a callback in the Nibelhim flashback, when she shows up wearing the cowgirl outfit. Hypocritical Humor: Yuffie, the former Trope Namer for Wutai Theft, complains about an area filled with enemies who steal. Idiot Hero: Cloud. It'd be more accurate to say he's an idiot with occasional heroic tendencies. Innocent Fanservice Girl: Having lived all her life in the slums, Aeris doesn't know how beaches work, and ends up undressing completely. Knight of Cerebus: For a affectionate parody and comedy rendition of the story, the author managed to make Dyne WAY creepier. Let's Split Up, Gang: Now provides the trope picture.
Red XIII: Lol k bye! Never My Fault: When its revealed that the plan to drop Sector Seven was mostly a failure, President Shinra blames Reeve for coming up with it. No Fourth Wall: "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: "Actual (adjective) (character) quote of the day!" Only Sane Man: While None of them seem to be able to keep hold of the Sanity Ball for very long, some manage to keep it longer than others. Plot Based Photograph Obfuscation: when Cloud meets Zack's parents in Gongaga, Mrs Fair shows him a happy family portrait with a young Zack conveniently censored by a simple question mark point on his face. Road Trip Episode: page 271 has everyone pile into The Buggy and do stereotypical road trip things like suggest travel games, ask "are we there yet?" incessantly, sing "99 bottles of beer on the wall", and get carsick Running Gag: Cait Sith keeps getting destroyed. Yuffie puking. Shout Out: There's in the seven second page! Solid Snake, Captain Falcon, GI Jane, Mr T, of course, Wedge and Biggs (started from Star Wars and Final Fantasy IV onwards), Bubba, and rebel scum. Spell My Name with an S: A constant source of jokes, and not just with Aeris/Aerith. Butz/Bartz also makes a cameo appearance. Spoofed With Their Own Words: Melon loves using the bad translations to spoof the game. Straight Gay: Don Cornelo picks "Cloudia" out of the lineup, of course... Hilarity Ensues. Suplex Starter And Finisher: On a demonic train, no less. Symbol Swearing: For some reason Cid does this, while Barret can turn the air blue as he likes. Taking You with Me: Played for dark laughs by Biggs here. There Is Only One Bed: Spoken word for word by Tifa, in regards to her and Cloud's prison cell having only one bed. Thousand Yard Stare: Played for laughs and lampshaded here. Transparent Closet: He doesn't deny it, but the officer who orders Cloud around doesn't confirm it.
Cloud: "... By the way, watching me the whole time while getting undressed? Really creepy, dude."
Officer: "Nonsense, it was completely necessary." Vitriolic Best Buds: Lampshaded. After mocking Barret's command decisions for most of the comic so far:
Cloud: "Hey! Stop harassing my freaky-techno-buddy!" *punches Loitering Lou in the face* Tifa: "Wow, did you just act out of character for Barret?" Cloud: "Of course. I'm the only one allowed to push him around." Vomit Indiscretion Shot: Lampshaded. Cloud wonders if "this comic is going to stop puking everywhere". Webcomic Of The Game: Of Final Fantasy VII What Were You Thinking?: WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?! Who Writes This Crap?!: Characters are often seen reading and commenting on the game script. Cloud
: Aeris, that's the dumbest idea I've ever- wait.
YOU said that?
: I'm sorry!
*holds up papers clearly labeled GAME SCRIPT*
It's this script!
Wimp Fight: The aforementioned Tifa/Aeris Catfight. Made funnier when you remember Tifa is an expert Martial Artist. You Can Talk?: Cloud to Red XIII
Cloud: "... This dog is
Your Head Asplode: See Death Glare above. Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: Given what it's based on, this is a given.
