YMMV: David Gonterman
  • Copy Cat Sue: Johnathan Brisby is, perhaps, the most blatant example of this trope in action. In his original incarnation in The Rangers of NIMH (a Crossover fanfic of Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers and The Secret of NIMH), he's essentially a Generation Xerox of the canon Jonathan Brisby (but spunkier!). Then he undergoes Canon Migration (so to speak) to become a shameless ripoff of the character in Fauna Force. This will no doubt be the case for whatever upcoming story Gonterman has planned for the re-envisioned "Johnny Briz".
  • Crazy Awesome: With his sheer amount of output, eventually there had to be one moment like this - A werewolf riding upside down through a dimensional portal, on a rocket-propelled Harley, after having a beer and bragging about getting laid the night before to a king, a scientist, and the American President; is one of those things that is so unabashedly ridiculous it loops back around to awesome.
  • Designated Hero: Copper Mystrian, Adam's adoptive father, uses hypnosis to assemble an army of girls dressed like dolls (along with a few guys), he uses some of these girls as a harem, which typically confers insta-villain status. And he's still one of the good guys. Gonterman writes this off as just a vice.
  • God-Mode Sue: Scarlet, Davey, everyone.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Sentient fursuits? An army of young girls dressed like dolls and used for many things ranging from assassination to sexual pleasure? The glazed over look in everyone's eyes?
  • Never Live It Down: The homophobia from American Kitsune
  • Snark Bait: Most of the "fanbase" is based on this.
  • So Bad, It's Good
  • Squick: Let's list them.
    • In the latest incarnation of BAM, Eric/Davey has sex with a human woman... after he's turned into a furry.
    • Also the incestuous relationship of Davey and Usagi in American Kitsune.
    • Sexbots show up quite a bit.
    • Oh, and the mind control stuff, too.
  • Suetiful All Along: Gonterman's attempt at Lampshade Hanging in Baka Breakers.
  • Thirty Sue Pileup: Goes without saying. The original Blood and Metal series had plenty of Sues, including ones modeled after friends of his.
  • Took The Bad Film Seriously
  • Unfortunate Implications: Gonterman's portrayal of women as being Living Props for his self-inserts.
    • American Kitsune has a whole lot of Bury Your Gays.
    • The Piasa Bird. Dear God, The Piasa Bird. For starters, we don't know the legend dealing with the bird (which actually looks more manticore-like), but we do know that birds are a common motif in the Eastern US cultural complex. (If it's related to thunderbirds, then it's not necessarily evil.) Moreover, much of it is Author Filibuster about racism against white people, almost implying that the more classical version of racism doesn't exist anymore. Which is all the more wonderful as it's told from Zack's perspective.
