Chase Connors. Power: Having moxie.
Created by some artist cough, Scott, cough
, Nerf This
follows the adventures of the aggressively stylish Chase Connors, his horribly adorable pet monster Monty
and their group of oddball friends
. Updating Monday. Wednesday and Friday, this Webcomic
has been running since March 2009 and is still being updated regularly.
The series is notable for its Mundane Fantastic
universe and its later strips being more plot oriented
as opposed to a joke-per-strip comic.
Nerf This contains examples of:
- Abandoned Info Page: The cast page is a few story arcs behind and missing several main characters.
- A Date with Rosie Palms: Zoey's defining trait.
- Ambiguous Disorder: Chase has this in gallons.
- Anthropomorphic Personification: Taryn's mother, Destiny, may or may not actually be the universal force known as destiny.
- Art Evolution: Later comics are noticeably sharper and more detailed than the earlier comics.
- Badass Mustache: Mr. Mills and Tony's dad. Nergal sports one of a more dapper variety.
- Beta Couple: Tony and Steph, engaged almost from the get-go.
- Bifauxnen: Taryn's friend Aiden gets confused for a guy by multiple characters.
- Birds of a Feather: Taryn and Chase, so alike it's creepy.
- A Boy and His X: Chase and his pet monster, Monty. Also, Taryn and Snarky. And Tony is the Mayor of Pizza.
- Can't Act Perverted Toward a Love Interest: Averted, Chase is often at his worst with Taryn, even when they first meet.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Snarky, Taryn's pet, hasn't been seen for a while.
- Referenced, then averted.
- Though the koalas haven't shown up for a while either...
