Recap / Meta Runner Special Fast Food Fight

Go To
An animation about action, drama and hamburgers.

In this special short, Sofia sends Tari into the game Fast Food Fight in order to practice her problem solving and social interaction skills with NPCs, by trying to settle the sandwich-related differences between TheOdd1sOut and Arin. Hilarity Ensues.

The special contains examples of:

  • Absentee Actor: With the exception of Sofia, the rest of the regular cast is absent from this special.
  • Art Shift: TheOdd1sOut and Arin show up in the game as their cartoon avatars with limited movement animation.
  • Bland-Name Product: Sooubway and Wondy's. This is lampshaded twice, first when TheOdd1sOut shows up:
    Tari: Don't you mean a Sub-
    TheOdd1sOut: Nope, I definetly meant Sooubway! *its a legal thing...*
    • And again when Arin shows up:
    Arin: Have you heard about our lord and savior Wondy's?
    Tari tries to speak up about the name again
    TheOdd1sOut: *legal thing...*
  • Canon Discontinuity\Fake Crossover: Like Tari's Live Stream, the events of the main show would make this special unlikely to happen within its plot (Tari would most likely be busy training for the Tempest tournament), but again, it's merely a fun little short.
  • Crazy Consumption: Arin's sandwiches. In particular the frosting-filled burger that causes Tari to gag.

  • Funny Background Event: While Tari is preparing her sandwich during TheOdd1sOut and Arin's fight, Arin chases down TheOdd1sOut with a freaking dragon.
  • Fun with Subtitles: The YouTube comments lampshade the above moment with the dragon (at 4:17):
    (where did Arin get a dragon?)
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: After Tari manages to get TheOdd1sOut and Arin to stop fighting with a grilled cheese sandwich, Sofia congratulates her with her disembodied voice, which causes TheOdd1sOut and Arin to freak out. Tari then tries to explain how they're actually in a video game, which only causes TheOdd1sOut and Arin to freak out more and question their existence.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Arin briefly looks right at the audience demanding Wondy's to make him a sponsor. Halfway through his outburst the camera cuts to him looking off into nothing.

  • Lighter and Softer: Especially coming off the season one finale.
  • Order Versus Chaos: The conflict between TheOdd1sOut and Arin:
    TheOdd1sOut: Being a sandwich artist is about mixing the ingredients that you have in bigger and better ways, not just throwing things together!
    Arin: Maybe, if you're boring. The art of the sandwich is to take anything, and make something beautiful with it, like a burger filled with frosting.

How well does it match the trope?
