Darth Wiki / Winnie the Pooh's Home Run Derby

Go To

  • Animalistic Abomination: All of Christopher Robin's minions.
  • Badass Adorable: The hardcore bear mentioned above is Winnie the Pooh. Christopher Robin and his minions also look the part.
  • Badass and Child Duo: Kanga and Roo are the first to demonstrate the group's reality-warping powers, proving to Pooh that Eeyore, Lumpy and Piglet were just warm-up sessions.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Winnie the Pooh eventually defeats Christopher Robin, but his mind has been completely shattered from the horrors he has endured.
  • Black Magic: One possible reason how they can throw those ridiculous pitches.
  • Cats Are Mean: Tigger, the strongest of Christopher Robin's minions. A few steps below his dark master, Tigger will try his damnedest to beat Pooh... or die trying.
  • Cosmic Horror Story: No matter what happens, Pooh will never triumph over Christopher Robin.
  • Cruel Elephant: Downplayed with Lumpy. He's only slightly harder than Eeyore, but he's still a minion in Christopher Robin's hellish band.
  • Determinator: What Pooh (and the player) becomes by overcoming each and every one of Christopher Robin's minions and, with the smallest chance, beating the Harbinger of Winter.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Beating Christopher Robin is harder than beating a god.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Each pitcher smiles as if they're just having fun and not eating your soul, and Pooh also smiles despite the torment.
  • The Dragon: Tigger is just behind Christopher Robin in terms of sheer destructive power.
  • Feathered Fiend: Owl, the second-strongest minion, and not at all someone to be trifled with.
  • Full-Boar Action: Downplayed. Piglet's as small as his name suggests, but his pitches are what make Pooh realize the graveness of the situation before him.
  • A God Am I: Christopher Robin finally makes good on his subtle threat from decades ago in Winnie the Pooh's conception.
    "There is no God here today. Just me."
  • Hair-Raising Hare: Rabbit, the third-to-last foe before Christopher Robin steps down. His balls have the uncanny ability to slow down before suddenly speeding back up.
  • The Heavy: Owl and Tigger are the most powerful minions at Christopher Robin's disposal. Only once they are defeated will the Harbinger of Winter appear.
  • Hellish Horse: Eeyore, despite his lesser difficulty, is still a minion of Christopher Robin.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Christopher Robin might as well be madness embodied.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Kanga ushers in the Reality Warpers and Christopher Robin is Satan himself.
  • Mind over Matter: Another likely explanation how Pooh's "friends" can make the balls defy the laws of physics.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: What better way to kill several Animalistic Abominations and the human incarnation of pure evil than by playing baseball?
  • Odd Job Gods: Christopher Robin is the cruel, monstrous god of... baseball.
  • Ominous Owl: Owl is only the second-to-last minion that Pooh faces, but his wave-like pitches are bound to leave Pooh scarred for life.
  • Panthera Awesome: Tigger is the greatest of Christopher Robin's minions.
  • Physical God of Evil: Christopher Robin.
  • Red Baron: Christopher Robin, the "Harbinger of Winter".
  • Satan: Christopher Robin is the Big Bad controlling his evil minions. With his unholy powers, he will pull every dirty trick imaginable and unimaginable. He is merciless, and his demands (40 homeruns out of 50 pitches) are unreasonable and unfair. He's toying with Pooh, intending to drive him insane by making him play a hopeless game.
  • The Sociopath: Christopher Robin, who takes immense joy in tormenting the Pooh, and forces his pitchers to engage in an endless game to torment their closest friend.
  • Sorting Algorithm of Evil: You start with Eeyore, the easiest (but still tough) pitcher, and gradually face more difficult ones, until you finally get to meet the all-mighty Christopher Robin.
  • Soundtrack Dissonance: The music is very calm and sweet for such a cruel, soul-crushing game.
  • Starter Villain: Eeyore. He's the easiest of Christopher Robin's minions, but he's merely the calm before the storm.
  • Sugar Apocalypse: The fate of the Hundred Acre Woods and all the lives in it rest on Pooh's skills at baseball to defeat Christopher Robin and his minions.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss:
    • Piglet, the last of Christopher Robin's lesser minions, has pitches quick enough to catch Pooh off-guard.
    • Kanga and her dark spawn Roo are the first of Christopher Robin's true god minions and the first to bend reality to her will to try and beat Pooh before he becomes too powerful.
    • Rabbit is a good deal more powerful, able to slow his ball down to a snail's crawl before suddenly pushing it forward again. Unlike the previous opponents, Rabbit will accept no less than half of Pooh's success.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: The pitchers with the exception of Christopher Robin have been brainwashed and forced to play in an endless, painfully horrible game.
