This meme provides examples of: Affably Evil: Despite its ruthless streak (dissenters are ordered decapitated, pureed, barbecued...), Lord Inglip seems pretty generous ◊ to its faithful ◊. It even mourns those who fall in its name ◊. Anything That Moves Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Hinted at this comic strip that it may have been a mortal in its former life, or descended to the mortal plane for a time in some form. Eventually confirmed ◊. Authority Equals Asskicking: Despite its fearsome army, Inglip needs no one to defend itself ◊. Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: Henry VI, apparently ◊ The Berserker: Shaskel's ◊ followers are like this, possibly. Bizarre Alien Biology: Among other things, it feels mammals as emotions ◊. Black Speech: Inglip's native tongue, Plasper ◊. Blue and Orange Morality / Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Lord Inglip commands considerable respect and admiration, but its commands and requests ◊ can sometimes be somewhat ◊ odd ◊. Body Horror: The Mantank is by far the most gory creature the dark lord has ever created. Part robotic tank and part humanoid cyborg, it stands several stories high and is made from sacrificed enemies, including their souls. Brown Note: The word slasessa is Chydrego's weapon of choice. ◊ It is more potent if uttered by experienced priests. Care Bear Stare: The 'E' note ◊, as impossible as it sounds. Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Its commands ◊ can tend towards the strange ◊ and even whimsical ◊. Cool and Unusual Punishment: If Inglip breaks from the usual cavalcade of straightforward bodily harm to traitors, it's usually something ◊... very ◊ very ◊ (warning: kinda NSFW) creative ◊. Cult: The Dectrip Faith, the adherents of which are called gropagas. Cute Bruiser: The Nyanja. ◊ Eldritch Abomination: Probably one itself, but it also commands a number of them, including the Lervidan. Special mention also has to go to DL'GOKN ◊, who seems to drive its followers into suicidal frenzies that turn them into reality-warping bombs. Eldritch Abominations Out Shopping: A major source of its appeal, which takes the edge off of its Evil Overlord tendencies. Inglip often shares details ◊ of its day-to-day life ◊, and seems rather ◊ pleasant ◊ when it's not giving commands or dealing with dissent. Embarrassing First Name: Call it Inglinf at your own risk. ◊ Emotion Eater: ... Maybe ◊? The End of the World as We Know It: Unlike most cosmic horrors, this is something Lord Inglip is trying to . According to its word, one of the signs of the end-times would be, interestingly enough, prevent ◊ Palin University ◊. Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Inglip's wife, Queen Ellinus and the rest of its family. Even The Subtitler Is Stumped: Sometimes ◊. Evil Overlord: Inglip is also the ruler of its own country called Trathira which tend to have a habit of conquering places. Foreshadowing: Once considered an empty threat, Chydrego's promise of the Inglipse ◊ was, for a time, quite real, thanks to the outcome of the Great Battle of Trathira ◊. Hanson: Three of Lord Inglip's prophets. Girl on Girl Is Hot / Lipstick Lesbian: saffica necessary. Go Mad from the Revelation: Happened to a Gropaga who asked too much about Shaskel High-Class Glass: nSIfo ◊ is a very polite greeting. Humongous Mecha: The Mantank and the Grigan ◊. I Know You Know I Know: Inglip thought one loop further than Chydrego. I Love the Dead: Inglip: the Nonalive Improbable Weapon User: Aside from the seven falchions, gropagas have been commanded to use the trident-like sclivel ◊ and the pailbat ◊. Jumped at the Call: Poor Estitedo... ◊ Katanas Are Just Better: Averted. It prefers falchions ◊. Seven of them to be precise. Kill Sat: The Beam Scumany ◊. Laser Blade: The newest weapon in the Grisidly Army's arsenal: the Xandit Lightsabers! Light Is Not Good: Chydrego is a god of light, but relies on brainwashing and mind control to gain followers. Manly Tears: For Garkee. ◊ Mix-and-Match Critters: The gropagas have a genetic engineering facility ◊ which most of the creatures it produces are amalgamations of different animal parts and some odd ones like a living tea pack with Pikachu appendages. The Multiverse: Over a hundred realities. ◊ Mundane Utility: The ability to possess people comes in handy when signing for packages ◊. Mushroom Samba: Apparently "cracke" ◊ (not to be confused with crack) has this effect. Ninja: Lord Inglip has a personal squad of elite ninjas, the Fujin Edersix. Overly Long Gag: You would expect that captcha gibberish couldn't be milked for a repeating gag? Prodlly thinks otherwise. (Those were "Ent" gags #11, 12 and 13 and he begins to lampshade them...) Pardon My Klingon: Scrompla you ◊, blesag! ◊ The Power of Rock: Improves morale! Omniglot: Inglip has made proclamations in Belgian ◊, Tagalog, Italian, Spanish, and English, none of which are its native language, Plasper. One of Us: If Inglip were real, it ◊ totally ◊ would ◊ be ◊. (Context for those not in the know, from first to last: Firefly, The Office, Twilight, and LAN parties.) It also seems quite averse to Internet Explorer ◊, and it suggested watching ◊ Inception. Red Oni, Blue Oni: Inglip and Chydrego are both eldritch abominations who command mortals to do their bidding through captchas. Inglip prefers direct confrontation and brute force while Chydrego prefers trickery and mind control. Red Wire Blue Wire: Subverted, since Prodlly is naturally a fan of TVTropes. Religion of Evil: Quite possibly. ◊ Rule Of Cool: The Saga of Rad ◊ jumps ◊. Rule 34: Lord Inglip's a fan, apparently. Squick: Apparently even Inglip has its limits. ◊ Self-Referential Humor: Mind blown...rebooting... ◊ Take That: Against ◊ Zalgo. Troll: Apparently, Inglip is not above taking potshots ◊ at its minions ◊. Or other people ◊, for that matter. Chydrego and his followers also live for this purpose. And of course Prodlly, a one-troll army. The Ultimate Showdown Of Ultimate Destiny: The Great Battle of Trathira ◊ ended up pruning many of the captcha deities that had been cropping up. Weapon of Choice: Seven Falchions ◊. Well-Intentioned Extremist: As mentioned above, Inglip is trying to prevent the end-times ◊. Its expansionism and accumulation of people and materiel is likely an effort towards this end. It also works toward Locisi, a time where all can coexist in peace and harmony ◊. Xanatos Gambit: Chydrego pulled a masterful one here ◊. No matter who won, he was poised to pick up the pieces, and was, for a time, once more the second-greatest threat to the Dark Lord, next to the savage Shaskel. Zombie Apocalypse: A source of troops for Inglip's army, along with sharks. And gay ghosts. And Tom Selleck clones.
