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.
  • 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.
  • Complete Monster: Christopher Robin appears in the shape of a young boy, initially pretending to view his creation Winnie The Pooh as a friend, but is in truth a sinister abomination of no known human origin. After years of playing with him, Pooh is forced to partake in a twisted baseball game. Winnie The Pooh's soul is trapped in an eternal purgatorial state, where he must battle against his perceived friends in an impossible and horribly painful ordeal, undergoing centuries of torment as Christopher taunts him and laughs at his suffering.
  • Cosmic Horror Story: No matter what happens, Pooh will never triumph over Christopher Robin.
    • Lovecraft Lite: If you do end up defeating the Harbinger of Winter.
  • Cruel Elephant: Lumpy.
  • 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.
  • Five-Man Band:
  • 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.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Christopher Robin might as well be madness embodied.
  • Advertisement:
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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: 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.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: The pitches with the exception of Christopher Robin have been brainwashed and forced to play in an endless, painfully horrible game.
