Courtney, better known by her online handle, Project SNT, is an artist/Youtuber who makes videos. She has two notable series on her channel:

The first is SNT Comics, in which she reviews her old comics about Sonic the Hedgehog and her fan character, SNT. The first was hand-drawn, and the rest were Sprite Comics.

Her other main series is Sylveon Trolls Everyone, where Sylveon roasts various Pokemon, their Alolan variants, their original Gen 1 sprites, their Shiny forms, Yo-Kais, Digimon, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters, and even her fans. Sylveon is also known for her hatred of Lucario.

You can find her YouTube channel here.

Tropes about her channel in general

  • Cat Girl: Her online persona is a catgirl, complete with cat ears and a tail that both match the color of her hair.
  • Early Installment Character-Design Difference: Her Author Avatar used to simply wear a long-sleeved sweater dress, a cat bell collar, and thigh high stockings. In January 2021, her design was updated to a more 90's-inspired outfit, though it still has the hand-hiding sleeves her old one had. She stated on the livestream where the new design was unveiled that this is because she didn't feel her old design accurately reflected her personality.
  • Retraux: She once made a list of her top five favorite Pokémon that not only looks like a classic 2000's-era YouTube video, but is made using software that is time-appropriate (so, for example, she had to use software emulating the MS Paint that would have been available in the 2000's instead of the one that came with her computer to draw her character).
  • Advertisement:
  • Thing-O-Matic: She directly cites the trope title on TV Tropes in a video where she explains and rips apart a home video she made with Hamtaro toys, where she calls Hamtaro's cloning machine the "Clone-O-Matic" (which is just a complicated way of explaining why she has two toys of Hamtaro himself).

Tropes about the SNT Comic series

  • The Ace: SNT is shown to be just as fast as Sonic, is incredibly strong, has two tails like Tails and can also fly like him, and Sonic gets a crush on her shortly after meeting her. Her Sueness is something Courtney frequently lampshades.
  • Berserk Button: In Part 4, after Eggman gives him fire powers, Knuckles insists on being called Flaming Knuckles and gets angry when anyone just calls him Knuckles.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Implied to be the case with Knuckles, given that he doesn't remember what he did as Flaming Knuckles and claims "I don't know what Eggman did to me."
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall:
    • Done in the hand-drawn comics, where Sonic remarks how he said something eight panels ago.
    • In the sprite comics, the top of each comics contains a mini-scene. Often it's a new arrival remarking on their entry into the comic.
  • Catchphrase: Whenever SNT does something improbable, expect someone to react to it with "Because she's SPECIAL!"
  • Characterization Marches On: SNT tends to change characterization from time to time, depending on the scene. She can go from an Action Girl, to a Deadpan Snarker, and even to a Shrinking Violet. This could all happen in the same scene, given the circumstances.
  • Clueless Dude Magnet: SNT gains the affections of Sonic and Shadow. She never realizes it, even when Sonic is doing the obvious "he's in love" tropes.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Sonic completely misses the Ship Tease subtext between SNT and Amy at the end of the comic, referring to it as "gals being pals". Shadow lampshades it.
    Shadow: Sonic...you're an idiot.
  • Contrived Coincidence: When SNT lands on Sonic in the hand-drawn comic, they were conveniently right on top of a trap door that lead to Eggman's underground base.
  • Damsel in Distress: SNT becomes one in the first arc of the sprite comics, getting kidnapped by Eggman and Rouge.
  • Distress Ball: Twice in the original hand-drawn comic. Sonic doesn't attack the robots who are attacking him, giving SNT a chance to rescue Sonic from the robots.
  • Driven by Envy: Most of Amy's actions towards SNT are driven by her jealousy over her getting Sonic's attention.
  • Dramatic Reading: Courtney and her friends provide voice overs for the characters.
  • Escaped from the Lab: SNT's backstory involves her being created by Dr. Eggman, by combining the DNA of Sonic, Knuckles, and Tails. The first comic starts off with her escaping by blowing up Eggman's lab.
  • Flat "What": Cream responds this way in Part 4 when Flaming Knuckles accuses her of mocking him.
  • Fun with Acronyms: SNT actually stands for "Sonic, Knuckles, Tails", whose DNA SNT was created from. It was coined by Courtney's cousin, who didn't know "Knuckles" started with a K. It stuck nonetheless.
  • Gemstone Assault: In the fight between Shadow and Flaming Knuckles, Shadow throws a chaos emerald at Knuckles.
  • Hand Wave: When Sonic asks why Eggman kidnapped Chocola, Eggman claims "You'll never find out!" According to Courtney, this was to cover up the fact that she never had an explanation.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: Flaming Knuckles demolishes not only SNT (even though she'd handily defeated Knuckles earlier), but also Shadow. In the end, instead of being defeated through combat, he has to be brought back to his senses.
  • Inventional Wisdom: The training room Tails built can be flooded at the press of a button. Courtney questions why he'd even include this, along with other unnecessary and dangerous features.
  • Jerkass Ball: Knuckles in Part 4 suddenly thinks girls are weak just so SNT has a reason to beat him up and lead to his transformation into Flaming Knuckles.
    Knuckles: Apparently I'm sexist!
  • Lampshade Hanging: Courtney and the other voice actors often lampshade various improbable moments in the SNT stories, like when someone is acting OOC.
  • Love Dodecahedron: Within the lore of the comic series, there was a Love Triangle between SNT, Sonic, and Shadow, with Amy being portrayed as the Clingy Jealous Girl for Sonic. In finale of the sprite comics, fans vote for SNT to get together with Amy, with Sonic being completely oblivious as Amy turns from a Clingy Jealous Girl for him into a Tsundere for SNT.
  • Love Triangle: Amy is trying to get SNT out of the way of Sonic, who has completely forgotten about Amy in favor of SNT. Thanks to popular demand, it ends on a bizarre note, with Amy and SNT falling in love with each other and Sonic still crushing on SNT.
  • Made of Indestructium: In the original comic, SNT claims she can't break a wall because it's made of plexiglass, which is apparently this in the comic universe.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Amy tries to get SNT killed in the training course so she can have Sonic for herself, and comes close to straight-up attacking SNT when that fails.
  • Non-Lethal K.O.: In the sprite comics. Eggman is seemingly killed by Sonic and friends, as he explodes. And yet Sonic says everyone should leave before he wakes up, and sure enough, Eggman is fine.
  • Not the Fall That Kills You…: Sonic saves SNT from a fall by catching her at the last moment, which Courtney notes should have seriously injured or killed both of them.
  • Only Sane Man:
    • Amy seems to be just as annoyed by SNT's Sue-ness as Courtney herself is. She's also annoyed by the fact that SNT's "arrow dynamic" design barely looks any different at all.
    • Courtney brings up several times that despite being only a child, Cream seems to be the smartest character in the comic. This comes up again when her idea proves instrumental in calming down Flaming Knuckles.
  • Original Character: SNT is Courtney's old Sonic the Hedgehog fan character that she made when she was younger. Originally she treats her and the comics as invoked Old Shame, but as videos regarding them progress SNT slowly grows on her again, and she became something of a channel mascot.
  • Pair the Suitors: In the series finale, former romantic rivals SNT and Amy Rose end up getting together.
  • Playing with Fire: Flaming Knuckles, as his name would suggest, can control fire. He can still do so even after turning back to normal.
  • Running Gag:
    • Saying "Because she's SPECIAL!" in response to SNT doing something improbable.
    • Knuckles always corrects someone when they call him something other than Flaming Knuckles.
  • Strong as They Need to Be: A variant of it. One minute, SNT is able to dodge a cage trap. The next minute, she is caught by it.
  • Talking Is a Free Action: In the hand-drawn comic, SNT spends three panels sassing a robot before running away, but it doesn't attack her in that time.
  • Theme Music Powerup: A variation. How does the gang finally stop Flaming Knuckles? By all singing "Unknown From M.E." at him.
  • Tsundere: Amy Rose is hostile to SNT for most of the series, but becomes her love interest in the end.
  • Wheel of Decisions: In the livestream ending, Courtney uses one to determine who "thinks of something" when Shadow is defeated by Knuckles. It's Cream.
  • Who's on First?: The SNT Vs. Knuckles livestream has a bit of fun with coin-flipping and Tails the fox.
    Courtney: Shadow is heads; Knuckles is tails.
    Zedrin: Wait, when was Knuckles Tails? I thought Knuckles was Knuckles.
    MEMJ0123 as Tails: If Knuckles is Tails, then who am I?
  • The Worf Effect: Flaming Knuckles utterly demolishes Shadow when the latter tries to protect SNT, with Shadow getting only one hit in. The battle's outcome was decided by a series of consecutive coin flips — apparently, luck just really wasn't in Shadow's favor.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Eggman was apparently killed by Sonic and friends in the Chaos Hungry Saga, yet he is fine later.

Tropes about the Sylveon Trolls series

  • Bait-and-Switch: In her April Fools 2018 video, Sylveon PLAYS - Bendy and the Ink Machine (April Fools 2018), she starts the video leading people to belive that she might play the titular game due to fan request. When she gets to the actual game, it turns out to actually be a poorly made RPG Maker game based on the game called "Origins of Bendy".
  • Berserk Button: Any mention of dragon-type Pokemon causes Sylveon to become bloodthirsty.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: The pink Pokèmon herself. She may seem cute, but in reality she is a textbook example of a Jerkass.
  • Censored for Comedy:
    • Starting with Sylveon Trolls Everyone - Hoenn Edition, she blurs out parts of some Pokémon (like Medicham, Manetric, and Vespiquen) because she fears YouTube could see them as... something else.
    • In response to a comment claiming that she's afraid to swear in Sylveon Trolls The Comments 4, she responds with a Cluster F-Bomb, punctuated with the word "wiener". The latter is the only word she bleeps out
      Sylveon: You really fucking think I'm too goddamn afraid to swear? Bullshit! Wi*ner.
  • Christmas Episode: "Sylveon's Twelve Days Of Trolling", where she sings a version of "The Twelve Days Of Christmas" interspersed with her trademark roasts.
  • Discredited Meme:
    • In-Universe. In "Sylveon Trolls Super Smash Bros.", she stops herself in the middle of making a "Sans is Ness" joke towards Ness after realizing how played out it is.
      Sylveon: Everyone, look! It’s Sans Undert- You know what, this joke is old, let’s not.
    • When she gets to Mudkip in Sylveon Trolls Everyone - Hoenn Edition, she of course mocks the "I Herd U Liek Mudkips" meme, which as of the video's upload, hasn't been relevant in years.
      Sylveon: Do you leik dead memes?
  • Enforced Plug: Parodied in Sylveon Trolls Everyone - Unova Edition for Palpitoad and Seismitoad, saying they may need help from today's sponsor, Curology, only to immediately say she's kidding afterwards, asking "Who in their right mind would sponsor this show?"
  • Insult Backfire: In "Sylveon Trolls The Comments 3", when someone calls her "a Barbie doll in Pokemon form", a dig at Sylveon's girlishness, she becomes honored that she's being compared to one of the most successful doll franchises in the world.
  • Insult Comic: Sylveon herself. Her entire schtick is roasting other Pokémon and other characters.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Briefly lampshaded in Sylveon Trolls the Comments 3, in response to a comment regarding her species' Shiny variant.
    Sink bomb girl / pinkshadow Delgdo: So wait so sylveon is a guy now since her shiny is blue
    Sylveon: Yes, because when something is blue it automatically means they have a penis.
  • Precision F-Strike: The first Sylveon Trolls video ends with Sylveon saying "Fuck you, Lucario.”
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: In the video "Sylveon Trolls Alola", she leaves the screen when an Alolan Lucarionote  shows up.
    Sylveon: (off-screen) Nope, not dealing with this today!
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Lucario. At the end of many of her episodes, Lucario shows up, and she reacts negatively. (This is because Lucario is a Steel-type, and Sylveon, a Fairy-type, is weak to Steel.)
  • Shout-Out:
    • "Ah, yes, the Mouse Pokémon... Mario."
    • She roasts Crabrawler by saying "BIG... MEATY... CLAWS!"
    • This exchange from "Sylveon Trolls Shiny Pokemon" about the abundance of green Shinies:
      Sylveon: Go collect some Pokemon and change them into your favorite color!
      Offscreen Voice #1: Blue!
      Offscreen Voice #2: Red!
      Offscreen Voice #3: Green!
      Sylveon: Green is not a creative COLOR!
    • She compares Shiny Sandslash to Knuckles the Echidna.
    • Her segment on Pac-Man in "Sylveon Trolls Super Smash Bros." is a reference to the Bloodhound Gang song "Mope".
    • In "Sylveon Trolls the Comments 3", after a failed attempt to insult Sylveon, the "Failure!" sound clip from Super Smash Bros. Melee plays.
    • In Sylveon Trolls Everyone - Hoenn Edition, she throws shade at Grovyle for not coming up with a good plan before traveling back in time.
    • When Amoonguss shows up in Sylveon Trolls Everyone - Unova Edition, her response is as follows:
    • When she finally gets to trolling herself in Sylveon Trolls...HERSELF? - Kalos Edition, after she says "There, I trolled myself. Happy?", the "Success!" voice clip from Melee plays, followed by that game's "Stage Clear 2" fanfare, as a callback to Sylveon Trolls the Comments 3, where the "Failure" voice clip plays after a commenter's failed attempt to roast her.
  • Take That!:
    • "Congrats on your new game! Otherwise you'd just be known for that terrible ripoff... Mambo No. 9."
    • She insults Fox and Falco mains by saying "this isn't a Melee tournament!"
    • On Sonic the Hedgehog's inclusion in Smash Bros.: "It's okay. There's nothing wrong with hanging out with a more consistently successful franchise."
  • Take That, Audience!: Sylveon has four whole videos dedicated to making fun of people's comments.
    • She takes joy in making fun of people who can't use good grammar. In fact, there's a whole section of the second video dedicated to making fun of people who can't spell "Sylveon" right.
    • Courtney asks people not to roleplay in the comments, and Sylveon insults the people who did it anyway.
    • She also dedicates a portion of the first video to making fun of "edgy" comments.
    • The second video repeats this, but Sylveon explicitly states that they're so weird they don't need her commentary.
    • Sylveon mocks people who use pony doll makers to make their Original Characters.
  • Tempting Fate: In Sylveon Trolls...HERSELF? - Kalos Edition, she responds to Fennekin hoping it doesn't evolve into a biped "otherwise we'll be in big trouble", only for it to do exactly that by evolving into Braixennote .
    Sylveon: Aaaand there goes the internet.
  • Troll: As the title implies, Sylveon is a self-proclaimed troll.
  • Video Game Perversity Potential: In "Sylveon Trolls Super Smash Bros.", she claims that the only reason people play as Miis in Smash is so that they can play as Miis with inappropriate designs, as demonstrated by showing a Mii with a blurred out face next to her.
    Sylveon: Literally the only reason people play as Miis is so they can play as a character with a PINGAS for a face.
