* UnstableEquilibrium: Bird Jesus shows exactly ''why'' Pokémon players will usually end up with a OneManParty unless they make an effort otherwise: what started as a small level advantage ended up making it the only one that could survive most battles, [[CantCatchUp overleveling it even further.]] [[CrutchCharacter Then]] they ran into Ghost-type Pokémon, [[PoorPredictableRock which Bird Jesus' movepool was unable to damage at all.]]

''[[LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemon Twitch Plays Pokémon]]'' (TPP) is a social experiment in which commands representing buttons on an original GameBoy (up, down, left, right, A, B, start, and select) are entered into a chat on Website/{{Twitch}}, and then translated into a game of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Pokémon Red]]'' via an IRC bot. In short, [[HilarityEnsues over 100,000 people are fighting over a controller]]. Throughout its life, ''Twitch Plays Pokémon'' has spawned hilarious characters, memorable moments, and even a few religions.

** [[SealedEvilInACan Sealed Evil In A PC]]: Flareon, considered to be an AppleOfDiscord and the AntiChrist [[TheMole sent by]] Dome, was stored in the PC. Drowzee got stored together with him, becoming [[YouShallNotPass the Keeper.]] Later on, Flareon got [[KilledOffForReal released,]] and Drowzee retrieved, leading to [[Literature/LordOfTheRings Gandalf]] references where Drowzee killed Flareon and emerged from [[SealedGoodInACan the PC]] victorious.

* IntellectualPropertyReligion: The majority of the viewership and Red himself are worshipers of the Almighty Helix Fossil, consulting it for advice before most actions. There are, however, some misguided souls who have turned to the ways of Dome-acracy. A fierce rivalry exists between the two religions.


* AppleOfDiscord: [[TheMole Flareon]] (formerly Eevee), who caused endless debate on what to evolve it into (Vaporeon or Jolteon were the main arguments, but [[ShaggyDogStory it ended up a Flareon anyway]]) then a trip to the PC that ended up releasing two Pokémon and almost losing a third. Some claim that Flareon [[RuinedForever ruined]] ''Twitch Plays Pokémon''.

** To hammer the point home ever harder, the direction the story has taken would fit right in with the CthulhuMythos. An insane and insomniac protagonist, bizarre religions formed around equally bizarre things with bizarre names (it's all too easy to compare the Helix Fossil/Omanyte to [[TropeNamer Cthulhu]] himself at this point), and strange and dangerous creatures everywhere are all hallmarks of something Creator/HPLovecraft would write.

* BellyOfTheWhale: Rocket Hideout. The first area where success looked truly hopeless. This trial would teach the mob what the adventure ahead of them demands.


* CurbStompBattle: AA-j against Blue's Blastoise on Route 22. [[OneHitKO It went]] [[ElementalRockPaperScissors about as one]] [[ForMassiveDamage would expect]].

Added DiffLines:

** A sizable portion of the fandom have referred to the PC as [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 the Blood God]].


* TheScapegoat: Obviously Eevee/Flareon isn't responsible for the choices forced upon Red by the chaotic hivemind of 50,000 people, but because of his BaseBreakeringCharacter status combined with the fact that he occupied the last party slot, the PC trip that ended with Abby and Jay Leno's release have become associated with it, and solidified its place in the fandom as the AntiChrist to Bird Jesus' MessianicArchetype.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: After 16 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes of sleeplessness, insanity, kicking ass, and getting his assed kick, along with more than 50,000 people screaming at his head and telling him what to do, Red was finally rewarded with the sweet victory known as silence after defeating the Elite Four. You earned in buddy, you earned it.
