Bulma: [Holding Phone]
If you boys won't help me, that's no problem. I have other ways to get what I want. Vegeta:
Hey, wait! Who are you calling?! Bulma:
Oh, hi, sis! Vegeta & Goku: Bulma has a sister?!
What are you talking about? Of course you've seen him before
! He was there when we all celebrated Pinkie's birthday, don't you remember? And he was there when we all went to Cloudsdale together. And he showed up that one time Pinkie went insane for a day. (picture of Shining Armour taped onto those scenes)
It's not like my brother just appeared out of thin air and now we're pretending that he was there the whole time. Pinkie Pie:
That never happened! Phhh, lazy writers
I'm their best mate. The Doctor:
Then why don't I know you?
"Ha haaaa! Fancy meeting you here, Princess. Remember me?" Aunn:
Oh, miss Marisa! Hello! Miss Reimu is out at the moment. Marisa:
Who the heck are you? Aunn:
Oh, don't be like that! I'm Komano the komainu! Although this is our first time talking. Marisa:
Is it, now. Aunn:
I may not look it, but I've been quietly protecting shrines and temples for quite some time now!
"I don't know who Anisa is either, but it's heavily implied she became Jasmine's mother figure after she lost her actual one. If Anisa is that important, why have we not heard of her for 15 years? You can't just invent a character like this when so much already exists without her. Where was she at Jasmine's wedding?" "When Caine Wise first appears in this movie, it really does feel like the film wants you to think, 'Ah, yes, my favorite character, Caine Wise. How we've grown with you over the years. I hope you succeed again, old friend'." Leon:
Maybe it's about time you told me the reason you're here? The Dark Id (as Leon):
You know, since you're an actual reoccurring character and not someone pretending to be one?
Ah, my old nemesis: Cheetah Lee. Cheetah Lee
: Um, who is this? Bruce:
You thought you had defeated me for good, but I, Bruce, fought back from the grave. I will take over the world and take my revenge on you! Cheetah Lee:
I don't think we've met.
Those bullies are being mean to Gary Stu! Joey:
Who the hell is Gary Stu? Yugi:
I don't know, but apparently, he's my best friend.
"A new character is brought in without warning, and everyone acts like we've always known him. It's actually quite perplexing. Valve has done a great job making us empathize with all the major NPCs so far, so being introduced to a new one at this late stage is like coming home from school to find a walrus sitting at the family dinner table and you're the only one who seems to notice." Nostalgia Critic:
These two characters are Vexy and Hackus, played by Christina Ricci
and J.B. Smoove. I'm introducing them to you because the movie forgot. We didn't see them made, we know nothing about them. We're just stuck with these two characters that never, ever got an introduction. *sighs* Don't you hate it when that happens, Bill? Bill:
(nods) Mmm-hmmmmm. NC:
*scoffs* Thats so Bill.
Break into the Headquarters Playset? Impossible! Crackotage:
Maybe for us, but not for... my evil twin brother, Subtlefuge!
[music sting] Silent Rip:
The leader of the Topplegangers!
[music sting repeats; Chirping Crickets
] Silent Rip:
Still nothin'. Crackotage:
(impatiently) The sometimes-good-guys sometimes-bad-guys whose only loyalty is to the highest bidder?
[music sting repeats very slowly] Silent Rip:
(as if now remembering) Ohh! Gunhaver:
Yeah! And they can help us open a new restaurant!
"Oh, uh, that's Minimoose, my other sidekick. Mm-hm. Yep. Been with me the whole time!"
