Darth Wiki / Bolt the Pikachu

Go To

What would happen if Sonichu was... good?

This is not that answer, but it's the closest one we've got. At least that's what the author thinks. Our story starts out upon the little village of Yellow forest, inhabited by little adorable creatures called Pikachu. All of them named Pikachu for some reason. Most of there hobbies involve running with sharp objects, doing back flips into the local shallow pond, and having staring contests with Bob. That last one doesn't seem to bad until you realize that they named the sun Bob.

Anyway, This story focuses on one Pikachu in particular. You see today is his wedding day. He's getting married to a beautiful female Pikachu. Today is going to be the best day of his life, right?

Wrong.

The alien race known as the Kragdor abduct him and inject him with DNA of several different races, Although, it's mainly Mobian. He reacts unwell to the sudden DNA interjection, and almost kills all of the aliens on the ship and himself. Until of course, a man named T saves him by taking him to the interverse and allow him to stabilize there. After the Pikachu is stabilized he is brought back to his home village. But he is not welcomed back with a smile. In fact, He is outright rejected by his little home village. Everyone hates him. Even his fiance Pikachu. No one wants a freak like that around, right?

Not exactly. The man who rescued him, T, offers him something. A sort of job. T works for God Himself as a Guardian of sorts. His latest job is trying to take down the Kragdor and their leader, the Dictator, from taking over the Multiverse. Anyways, T offers the Pokémobian, to come with him to help take down the Dictator. The Pikachu, having nowhere else to go, takes T up on his offer and renames himself Bolt.

This work will provide examples of:

  • The Ace: T is this. Almost to the point where some people say he's a Mary sue, in-universe.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Played with.
    • It's Averted with Silver, his character was a villain in the comic.
    • With Mary Lee Walsh it's Inverted in that she is an Anti-Hero. Then averted when she is possessed by Count Graduon who is an aversion of this trope.
    • With Jason Kendrick Howell it's inverted once again. He's an Anti-Villain.
    • Played straight with the Dictator, who is really Christian Weston Chandler.
  • Author Avatar: Like in the "Original" Sonichu comic, The author of this story has himself in the comic and has near unlimited powers. Unlike Sonichu The Author Avatar is not named after the author himself, Has a completely different back-story then the author and is actually likable.
  • Author Appeal: Like the comic, the author has shoved in a thing or two about things that he likes.
  • Beach Episode: Just like the comic, there is a beach episode that really has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the main story. It's even placed in the 4-cent Garbage Arc. Unlike the comic, there are no sex scenes.
  • Berserk Button: Don't ever kill a large amount of people, weather innocent of crime or not, just for fun in front of T. You will be lucky to be alive otherwise.
  • Big Bad: At least four, each one based off of a character in the comic.
    • Silver, who is the leader of team rocket, and is based off of Naitrihc.
    • Mary Lee Walsh, who is based off of... Mary Lee Walsh.
    • Jason Howell who is based off of... Jason Howell.
    • The Dictator, who is based off of, actually, he is Christain Weston Chandler.
  • Captain Ersatz/ Expy: Almost all of the characters in this are these to the Sonichu comic. It'd probably be easier to list the character who don't follow this trope.
    • Tenebrea is not an expy of anyone in the comic, but the author says that Tenebrea was taken from Vantias and Terra Design wise, and the Green Lantern in power-wise.
      • T is not this, despite T filling in the role of Christian. The author came up with this character long before he heard o the Sonichu comics.
      • Comically, the main character himself, Bolt doesn't follow this trope. His character was thought up as well before the author knew of Sonichu, and this story is actually his beginning.
  • Cosmic Keystone: The Master Sunstone. Just like the original comic it is forgotten after it's introduced. Though, unlike the comic it is justified because that it is located in another Universe and the main characters have to deal with their own problems.
  • Cyborg: Silver becomes one of these.
  • Darth Vader Clone: The Dictator is an unintentional example. He does where Dark Armor that makes his voice deep, but that expands his Strength and is just cool looking and sounds neat. He also is a Fallen Hero. And as it turns out is Bolt's father.
  • Deus ex Machina: Just like the Sonichu comic, although it is actually done by the man filling in for Chris' role in the story, T as opposed to Magi-Chan's role holder Mewtwo. T is also called D.E.M. in-universe.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: T sees the possession of Mary Lee Walsh in one of his dreams. This causes him to grab Mewtwo from his execution in Metru-Nui and his apprentice, Tenebrea, to save the day.
  • Evil Twin: Blake is this to Bolt. Same as Black Sonichu.
  • Evil Tower of Ominousness: The 4-Cent Garbage Headquarters is in this story as well, all 72 floors of it.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Just like in the original work, Jason has one of these. Unlike the original, we see how he got it.
  • Five-Man Band
  • Flying Brick: T, in spades.
  • Freudian Excuse: Mary Lee Walsh has one, but it's not at all like her Sonichu counterparts.
    • Jason leads the 4-cent garbage company because he was a bum off the street and the entire point of his plans is to help raise funds to help out the homeless.
      • Silver has an excuse now. Giovanni, his father, left him when Red defeated him for his eighth gym badge. He was young at the time and he misinterpreted that his dad was leaving because he thought that he was talking about him being weak, not team Rocket. Now he leads Team Rocket in order to prove he's strong and worth something.
      • Even the main villain has one of these. Christian believes that if he takes over the Multiverse, He'll be able to make it better then the Crapsack World that is there now.
  • Informed Ability: T has the ability to use every mask power in the Matoran Universe, Many Elemental Powers, Shape-shifting and going though time. Although the last two are semi justified as they require a lot of energy and time to use properly.
  • In the Hood: Just like his comic counterpart, Jason has one of these. Of course, he doesn't get one 'till we see him as a villain.
  • In the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ: used several times. At first it's used to get Graduon out of Mary's body. Then, Chanlee say this to get Graduon to give himself a wedgie. It's at this point that Graduon, as a spirit, shoots lightning at Chanlee and misses.
    T: God doesn't work like that you moron.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: T can do this, but Bolt does it more frequently with Electro Ball, which, yes, is a Pokémon move.
    • The Dictator can do this as well. Just like his comic counterpart.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: The Dictator is Bolt's, and by extension, most of the Chaotic Combos', father. He was responsible for their mutation into Pokémobians. It later turns out that he is secretly Christian Weston Chandler and his motives behind mutating them were to turn them into expy's of the Sonichu cast. This is later Subverted, by Bolt saying that Christian created Sonichu, and he is not Sonichu. He is Bolt.
  • Most Common Super Power: Done to a comical extent. At first Mary's bust is average in size. Then when she is possessed by Graduon, and transforms her bust is expanded as well. When she is freed of his possesion, her bust size goes back to normal.
  • The Multiverse: This entire thing takes place in a Multiverse. However they are divided into two sub Universes. Temporal Universes. and Dimensional Universes.
    • The Plant Kingdom is one where Cosmo rules over Metru Nui After the final battle with Dark Oak and the death of almost all of her friends.
    • Pokéarth is just the Pokémon version of earth.
    • The unnamed earth where Jason Howell resides. This ones a lot like our earth.
    • The unnamed dimension that T and the Dictator get stranded in.
    • The Interverse is a Universe where Physics, Gravity, Genetic DNA, Biology, Logic and Pineapples Don't work right.
    • Sonichu's Universe is in this large Multiverse as well. In it, everything is wonky. The Universe is quarantined from the rest of the Multiverse. Even people who could logically go anywhere they want aren't allowed in there. Not that they would want to go. And if anyone is wondering why the Universe is quarantined, it's because... It's the Sonichu Universe! There everything looks horrible, Logic doesn't work the way we'd think, Laws of Biology is thrown out the window. Basically, the universe is exactly the same as it is in the comic.
    • Then there is the Universe where the Dictator came from.
  • Number of the Beast: Like the comic, the 4-Cent Garbage Headquarters is "66+ 6" stories tall. However on a larger scale, the Sonichu's Universe is titled Universe 666, and is quarantined.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Blake to, surprisingly, Mewtwo.
  • Parental Abandonment: Giovanni and Silver
  • Psychic Powers: Mewtwo becomes a main character eventually.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Count Graduon.
    • Oddly enough, the Kragdor race.
  • Shock and Awe: Bolt, Amprissa, and Blake are lightning users. Unlike the original comic, None of the other Chaotic Combo are able to use Electric type moves, except for Chanlee, who can use Thunder Punch Ala his Hitmonchan half, and, oddly enough, Treecko, Who can also use Thunder Punch. Semi-justified though as Treecko can learn it in the games, but only via Black & White 2 move Tutor.
  • Unstoppable Rage: T does this to the Dictator while they are trapped in another dimension.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: The Dictator's motive.
  • Shout-Out: During the 4-cent Garbage arc, Treecko has confirmed that he watches Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. When T gets back he asks which one he watches, the "1987 series," the "2003 series," or the "2012 series?" To which Treecko does not reply due to the fact that he doesn't know the answer.
  • Start of Darkness: Christian Weston Chandler was friends with Sarah Hammer, Wes Iseli and Mary Lee Walsh in Charlottesville, Virginia. He was kinda the Butt Monkey of the group, but he was not hated. He had many ideas on how to make his hometown better a place by putting in certain laws. He had told many people these ideas, including the mayor, all of which shot them down because people had to vote on these laws and they probably wouldn't vote for them. Christian, Sarah, and Wes later found out that they were the Chosen Ones to stop an ancient Evil and were given super powers. Christian, thinking that if he was mayor he could place the laws ideas he came up with, attacked city hall in hopes of taking the position of Mayor by force. Sarah and Wes stop him from almost accidentally killing the mayor and he runs of to the outskirts of the city. He is then abducted by the Kragdor and kills their leader with his newly acquired powers. Rather than be enraged at the human, the Kragdor crown him as their leader. He later finds out about alternate Universes and finds one Universe in particular that intrigues him. Universe 666 or rather, the Sonichu Universe. This Universe has all of the laws that he had come up with and was doing really well, especially with that universe's Christian as mayor. He believes his rules to be the right idea and leads an attack for power on his hometown, hoping to concur it in the process. He accidentally destroys it and goes off into the Multiverse to create his empire to make it a better place.
  • Strawman News Media: Jason is the president of a news company and they continuously bash on Bolt and his friends on their news stories.
  • Wham Episode: The end of the fight against Mary Lee Walsh.
  • What Could Have Been: The explanation for why every thing is whacked out in Universe 666. The reason that Sonichu's universe has bad physics, logic, biology science, why everyone looks crappy, and just about everything else in the universe is so horrible can be blamed on one person. Christian. Weston. Chandler. Originally, Christian Weston Chandler was going to act as a Universal Tumor of sorts. As long as he was present in a universe, the Universe would bend to his will, most likely unintentional. That's right. He would have been a literal Black Hole Sue.
