Several years have passed since the vengeful alien Giegue had been defeated by Ninten, Ana and Loid. All seems good, until Ninten accidentally gets Ana pregnant. Little do they know, that the baby is apparently the Chosen One destined to save the world in the near future. Giegue finds out about this using the Apple of Enlightenment, and realizes that his future plan of conquering the universe is in danger. His first plan is to kill the chosen boy before he is born, but that doesn't work out. When all hope was lost, his future self, already defeated by The Chosen Four in the future goes back in time and gives him a special ability that will ruin the timeline and make it impossible for Ness stop him. And for the practically the entire duration of the story, Ninten and Ana have no idea about what's truly going on. As a result, there is nothing they can do about it.Mother 2 and a Half is a MOTHERFan Webcomic created by PsiPaula4. The first page was uploaded to DeviantART on May 8, 2010, and is still going. The comic is divided into several chapters, each around 70-80 pages long. After Chapter 4, the comic has undergone much Art Evolution, and much more detail has been put into each page. The creator is attempting to remake the earlier chapters so the style matches the later ones, but it's taking a long time. In the meantime, the middle of Chapter 1 to the middle of Chapter 4 is of much lesser quality than other parts of the comic, but it is still a work in progress.Has a Character Sheet.
This comic contains examples of:
Affectionate Nickname: Ninten and Ana have given each other pet names; Nintey and Annie. Though, they rarely call each other these pet names post Chapter 1. Especially Ninten.
Anti-Hero: Ness could be considered Type 1, because he doesn't exactly use his powers for heroic deeds. He has used his powers mainly to steal food and for self defense. It is also noteworthy to mention that he has used them to badly injure a kid who called him fat, and then stole his money to buy ice cream. The true hero of this story is actually Fluffy.
Art Evolution: As mentioned above, there has been a lot of Art Evolution since it started. The early pages had no backgrounds drawn on a majority of the panels, and since the drawings didn't start with a sketch, the drawings were of low quality, and 1-3 pages were uploaded every day since it took only a few minutes to create each one. In the middle of Chapter 4, the creator started sketching the pages first and increased the amount of panels per page from 6 to 12, so much more effort was put into each page and now about 1 page is uploaded a week. Compare this early page to this recent page. Not only that, but some characters got updates to their main designs. Ninten's mustache a little thicker and has larger sideburns, Ana's hair looks a bit different, Ness's bangs are rounded like on his official clay model, baby Ness has shorter legs and the aforementioned rounded bangs, Fluffy's fur tuft points up instead of down, and Giegue is slimmer. And in general, the shape of the heads aren't as round.
Break the Cutie: While most characters that apply for this trope are broken by someone else, Ness broke himself. As the story progresses, he gets more and more miserable, to the point where he cries on almost every page, either out of fear, hunger, or longing to see his mother.
Calling Your Attacks: Every PSI user has done this besides Giegue. It's especially weird when Ness does it, considering that nobody told him the names of his attacks. Justified with PK Rockin though, since he is the one who named it.
Chase Fight: Ninten becomes both unarmed and PSI Blocked at one point during a fight with a group of Starmen. He then has no choice but to run. While running, the Starmen are fighting him, and he dodges their attacks.
Cut a Slice, Take the Rest: While Ness was staying at Pippi's house, Ness says he must cut a tiny slice of cake for himself. He cuts very thin slice of cake, but takes the rest and devours it. Then he eats the leftover very tiny slice.
Daddy DNA Test: Loid does this to figure out if Ninten was the one who got Ana pregnant. It came out positive, much to Ninten's dismay and Ana's rage.
Deus ex Machina: Done when Ness is trapped in a corner by Boog; all seems to be done for in Ness's case; but then, he suddenly realizes the power of PK Rockin and blasts Boog with it, giving distance for Ness to run away.
Extreme Omnivore: Ness applies for the milder form, as he isn't hesitant to eat food from garbage cans. Once, in a desperate attempt to feed himself, he tries to eat grass... cue him spitting it out and wishing he had real food.
Five-Man Band: While the comic's main plot stars only four characters, the wedding battle scene had five fighters as follows:
Improbable Weapon User: Ninten can kill anything with the swing of his mighty... baseball bat? Ana uses a frying pan. Ness finds Ninten's bat on the ground during his second encounter with Boog, and uses it.
Midnight Snack: Ness is shown to do this twice. Both are plot points. The first time is in Chapter 2, when Ness gets up in the middle of the night to have his nightly binge. He eats all of Ninten's Oreos, and just as he finishes them (and was 2 seconds from getting more) Ninten comes through the door. It wasn't a pretty sight, and it contributed to Ness's decision the next night of running away. The second time is in Chapter 4, when Ness and Fluffy are staying at Pippi's house. Ness gets hungry in the middle of the night (of course) so he looks for something to eat. He tries to have something small so Pippi doesn't notice, but his stomach overpowers his mind causing him to eat everything except the pantry food, since he doesn't know where it is. Ness promptly realizes what he has done, and gets scared. He then leaves Pippi's house.
Only Known by Their Nickname: His name is Kenneth, but everyone calls him Ninten. Calling him Kenneth activates his easy to hit Berserk Button. The ONE time where Ninten was called Kenneth not for the purpose of activating it is "Kenneth, do you take Anabelle as your lawfully wedded wife?" Speaking of that, Anabelle is always called Ana except a few times by her father.
