Webcomic: The Ten Family
The Ten Family is a webcomic on the EarthBound fansite, Starmen.Net. Meet Mr. Jupiter, a studious, socially awkward freak who hasn't been left alone since moving to Saturn Valley. Until Jimmy, a Jerk Ass crow, swoops down on him while he is hard at work studying. He asks Mr. Jupiter to meet him at the shed the next day. Mr. Jupiter is then thrown off a cliff into a Tenda village and meets another misfit named Dattin. Hilarity Ensues. The comic can be found here.
This webcomic provides examples of:
- Flat "What.": Jimmy delivers one when Jupiter's mother requests to see him.
- Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Every character in the comic has a small accessory such as a hat, a tie or glasses, but no one is fully clothed.
- No Fourth Wall: Dattin's younger brother, Dan, is seen playing EarthBound.
- Dan is also seen browsing TVTropes.
- One of Us: Dan, Jupiter and Dattin. As evidenced by Jupiter's studying, Dattin's owning PaRappa the Rapper and EarthBound, and Dan's habit.
- Smoking Is Cool: School bully Jimmy the crow is shown holding a cigarette on the second page. Most likely a throwback to the Crow enemy in the first Mother game, whose cigarettes were removed from the sprite in the English prototype.
- Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Possibly subverted in the case of Dattin and Jupiter, as neckties are generally associated with males while hair ribbons are generally associated with females.
