General Fics

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

Bad Beat by innodle

  • Recommended by Tomaton
  • Status: Dormant; last updated September 2018
  • Synopsis: One month has passed since Cuphead and Mugman fought for their souls when a deal with the Devil went awry. After the commotion surrounding their tremendous feat died down, the boy’s lives have settled back into a usual carefree swing. Cuphead knows he should be thankful, but has grown bored and secretly yearns for some thrill in his life again. Meanwhile, a certain lackey is still coming to terms about losing everything. With King Dice’s life changed and his relationship with the Devil in tatters, what will happen when their paths cross once more?
  • Comments: A very well written fic with some quality world-building and characterisations. The author has perfectly captured the spirit of the characters, particularly King Dice who they make a point to portray as sympathetic and still a jerk at the same time. Some original characters to drive the plot are present too, who fit into the Cuphead world seamlessly.
