Roleplay / Welcome to My World

Go To

Welcome to My World (formerly Sonic Singers/Rappers Universe) is a Sonic the Hedgehog Journal Roleplay on the Scratch website hosted by user Jackal-Squad, taking place in an Alternate Universe where every Sonic character (including the ones from the comics and cartoons) exists in (presumably) the real world and is an adopted child of a musician. Yes, you read that correctly. It is inspired by the Sonic Fanvids Jackal-Squad would watch.

The roleplay works by asking questions in the comments of one of the "Ask (character)" projects, in which Jackal-Squad takes in the role of the pertaining character and answers the questions. It doesn't stop there. The answers not only reveal the characters' live in the Worldnote , but also reveal what is going on in the World, depicted by inclusions of other characters' responses and actions, allowing the users to experience and take part in the World. Jackal-Squad also uploads projects containing bonus information and art about the World.

Besides occasional pokes at the Sonic characters, their musician parents, and the music industry as whole, there are also regular Summoning Rituals, constant vampire attacks, the eventual fact everyone is living on a Band Land supercontinent with a big forest in the middle, the seemingly-Canon '06 Universe attacking the World, your favorite Sonic characters becoming vampires as result of said occurring vampire invasion, your favorite musicians also becoming vampire Mobians, an evil T-Series, and many more confusing and bizarre occurrences...

Jackal-Squad has also set up another roleplay, Pokemon Let's Go, Sonic!, which takes place in another Alternate Universe where every Sonic character owns a Pokémon, and also separate from this roleplay. She also runs several YouTube channels which also feature the characters from the World, but in a separate continuity.

Records of some roleplaying scenarios can be found in the Recap page.

'06 Universe inhabitants

The '06 Universe is an Alternate Universe where the Sega canon presumably takes place in. However, as you sink deeper into their minds, the allegedly canon Alternate Selves prove to be more sinister than you think. In fact, they're the main antagonists of the World.

Welcome To My World contains examples of:

  • Achilles' Heel: Besides normal vampire weaknesses, vampires have their own invidual weaknesses that if met with, must either fight or die off. A common weakness would be losing loved ones.
    • Weaksauce Weakness: The weaknesses some vampires have are just plain silly. For example, Sonic is weak against the presence of Kanye West, and Infinite and his Jackal Squad are weak against being called "weak".
  • Actual Pacifist: Silver Timberlake is the only one who never fights, because he makes an easy target for others, making him the most vulnerable.
  • Adaptational Heroism:
    • While Infinite in the canon is a merciless monster who has no problem with murdering innocents, Infinite in the World is rather harmless and friendly. He even saved his future girlfriend, Tangle, during the Shadows' ambush.
    • Mephiles after Taking a Level in Kindness. He's now friendly to most people, especially to Silver, whom he saved during the Shadows' ambush.
    • While Mimic in the IDW comics is an Ax-Crazy serial killer who desperately wants Whipser and her friends dead, he in the World, despite looking like Sonic EXE, is very benevolent and geniunely loves Whisper really much. Instead of slaughtering them, he only chased away the Diamond Cutters. His knife is only there for self-defense.
    • Even Mephiles the Dark in the '06 universe has received this. Since his enemies have turned aggressive to the World, Mephiles has used his opportunity as the villain of the '06 universe to defend the World from '06 attacks. (About the other villains, they're on the "heroes"' side.)
    • Really, anyone in the World who is a villain in the canon. They've learned to get along with others and remain kindly. Special mentions go to Scourge and Fiona.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Maria is nastier than her canon counterpart, with her personality rougly same as Shadow's current one. She would be happy about abandoning an unwanted baby to the murderous '06 universe.
  • Adaptational Villainy:
  • Adaptation Personality Change: While Mephiles the Dark in the canon is an irredeemable monster, Mephiles West was more of a Jerkass and Anti-Villain type, initially, before Taking a Level in Kindness.
    West is easily ticked off because of Bi-Polar disorder (reminds you of someone, right?), where Dark is just plain evil.
  • Adaptation Species Change: Downplayed example. Mephiles in the canon is a demon taking form of a hedgehog. Mephiles in the World is a regular hedgehog with No Mouth.
    • Additionally, "the Dark" has been appropriated to refer to any evil hedgehog rather than a demon, which means Mephiles the Dark is just a hedgehog with supernatural powers and Shadow Mathers is a Dark.
  • All Just a Dream:
    • The incident in which Mephiles West summoned Mephiles the Dark and had him murder Silver was only a nightmare occurring within Mephiles.
    • In fact, most the time, Mephiles' summoning of the Dark is revealed to just be a nightmare.
    • PewDiePie suddenly comes to the World, much to Jericho's big delight... Then Jericho wakes up.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Marina was disliked by others because she was simply a Kanye West fangirl, whom everyone else feared after the Silver/Blaze incident.
    After everyone else saw her, they all saw what her shirt said. In black ink, it wrote YEEZUS. They all knew what this meant and panicked in fear because they all knew how Kanye was with anyone who didn't like him.
  • Alternate Self: Everyone has their alternate selves in the '06 and Pokemon Let's Go! Sonic universes. Some can ever Summon their alternate selves.
    Mephiles the Dark: (spotting Mephiles West) GUYS, I TOLD YOU THERE WAS ANOTHER ME!
  • Alternate Universe Fic:
  • Always Night: After most of the vampire invasion is complete, Sonic, with his Sun Manipulation powers, sets the sun and keeps the moon up 24/7, so vampires can walk freely without being burned.
  • An Aesop: "Don't go on land that doesn't belong to you unless you're invited", or else Jericho will trap you in his cage for eternity.
  • And Now You Must Marry Me: Part of Jericho's Evil Plan is to force Mephiles' wife and whom Jericho has a Villainous Crush on, Marina, to marry him. And he succeeds, though he doesn't do this right away and lets Marina fall for him first, Subverting this trope.
    • Shadow the Hedgehog plans to force Maria to marry him after killing off everyone else in the World.
  • Animorphism:
    • Mephiles and Marina both have the ability to transform anyone into a Mobian hedgehog by touching them, as shown with the West family here. Most of the time, Kanye and Kim Kardashian West and their children appear as hedgehogs.
    • Shadow also has the ability, but only to those he has a strong relationship with, leading to the fandom-known Maria the Hedgehog.
    • Eventually, for some reason (probably vampirism), every human turns into a Mobian of the species of their related adopted Mobian (for example, Tyler Smyth is a jackal).
  • Anti-Villain:
    • Mephiles at first. He was an aggressive Jerkass with a Hair-Trigger Temper and tendecy to attack others, but he's not truly malevolent.
    • While hard to believe at times, Jericho is this also. He can also get very hostile and inflict mean acts onto innocents, but that's only if he's provoked. Otherwise, he's harmless.
  • Arch-Enemy:
    • Shadow and Mephiles, due to their conflicting parents.
    • Jericho and Eclipse, to reflect the PewDiePie and T-Series rivalry.
  • Ascended Fangirl: Marina was just a Fangirl of Kayne and Mephiles West, and now Mephiles' her husband.
    Marina: I knew I would get married one day, but I never thought it would be to MY HEDGEHOG IDOL! I got into him from Kanye West music and had crushed on Mephiles ever since. I never thought I would be able to meet him or him love me back. It was a dream come true when he proposed to me.
    • Pretty much anyone adopted by a musician. They were fans of them, so they left their parents to be adopted by them.
  • Assimilation Plot: T-Series' Evil Plan is to hack into everyone's computer and subscribe them to T-Series and unsubscribe from PewDiePie, according to their Dragon, Eclipse.
  • Author Appeal:
    • Jackal-Squad is a Kanye West fan herself and her favorite character is Mephiles, which contributes to the big personality and roleplay time Mephiles West has.
    • She is also largely interested in vampires, which is why Jericho the Vampire Hedgehog is here, as well as everyone else becoming vampires.
    • Jackal-Squad is a big fan of Sonic fan artist Tri-Jean, the reason why so many of her characters are in the World, despite not having a musician parent.
  • Author Avatar: Marina is basically Jackal-Squad's counterpart in the World. Her Backstory even shows she was from another universe and was in love with Kanye West and Mephiles at a very young age. Jericho's Villainous Crush on Marina is based on Jackal-Squad's Perverse Sexual Lust for Jericho.
  • Ax-Crazy:
    • Shadow, and formerly Mephiles, won't hesitate to Summon someone and order them to kill someone else, whose usually not supportive of their parents. Jericho, a bloodthirsty vampire, will also attack others unprovoked.
    • Not to mention Shadow's now favorite pastime is shooting laser beams at cats.
    • None of these examples match up with Shadow the Hedgehog, displaying disturbingly psychopathic tendacies such as kidnapping Amy and Silver and subjecting them to horribel conditions, electrocuting his dog for a weak reason, and firing killer guns at his enemies.
  • Badass Pacifist: The simple presence of Maria is enough to make the menacing Shadow the Hedgehog surrender.
  • Band Land: Inevitable for a premise focused on musicians, the whole World is obviously this. Each province of the supercontinent is themed after a music genre and their culture: Pop, Classical, Country, Children's, Electronic, Holiday, Gospel, World (all Trisha's side); Hip Hop, Novelty, R&B, Rock, Jazz, Blues, and Reggae (all Jericho's side). The provinces are further divided into counties based on specific music genres, such as a Trap Music county in the Hip Hop province.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Mephiles can be put off by anything, but anything that proves negative of Kanye West, including Taylor Swift and Blaze, is enough to get him to summon the Dark.
    • Any Non Setiqur (read: random, no-relation-to-World) questions for everyone in the World, to the point when a massive wave of them was sent, the comments were temporarily disabled and a rule was placed banning such questions. Except for Gadget. He loves asking Infinite those, so he'll happily redirect them to Infinite.
    • Cats for Shadow, just because he's allergic to them. He targeted Silver only because he dated a cat, regularly shoos cats off his property, and will disable his comments if cats are mentioned.
  • Beware of Vicious Dog: Shadow's pet Talking red-eyed husky, who happens to be Smile Dog. The only ones he's friendly to are Shadow and Maria.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble:
    • Shadow the Hedgehog of the already evil '06 universe. Unlike Shadow and Jericho, who don't cause big damage and are just aggressive, Shadow the Hedgehog, and the '06 universe he's leading, really do pose a real threat and want to destroy the World for once and for all.
    • T-Series, though they don't post any real threat besides to the World's subscribed channels, and it's really just a silly re-imagining of the Great Subscriber War.
  • Big Damn Heroes: During the omnicidal attack by Shadow Mathers and the Hedgehog, Mephiles goes off warning everyone of them. When Shadow ambushes on Silver and Floee, Mephiles Takes the Laser Beam and manages to summon everyone from the '06 universe.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: At first, the '06 universe inhabitants look like the friendly and happy video game heroes you've grown up with. Hidden inside, they're really envious of and hellbent on invading the World and wiping out the inhabitants there.
  • Blank White Void: Mobius, where every Mobian (and a Token Human, a Seedrian, and a Blacks Arm humanoid) came from. It's literally a blank space with nothing in it.
  • Brainy Baby: Weeks-old vampire children will often be intelligent enough to use the potty on their own, play video games, host sleepovers, and talk fluently, thanks to their vampire abilities that allow them to age mentally much quicker.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Unusually Averted for this type of premise and setting. The characters still have their canon superpowers, but they're barely used.
    • Played straight for Silver, whose psychic powers were stolen by someone else when he was young. This is one of the reasons he's an Actual Pacifist.
  • Cock Fight: The female echidnas do a good ol' fight over Knuckles regularly, though he's already married to Rouge.
  • Co-Dragons:
    • Shadow the Hedgehog's major allies, such as Sonic, do count, as they follow his orders.
    • Eclipse and Reveron, who serve T-Series and have gotten to the World just to carry out their work.
  • Crack Fic: And it gets even weirder than the "Sonic characters living with real-life musicians" premise.
  • Crapsack World: The eponymous World is a Played for Laughs example. No laws, law enforcement, and the legal system exist, which means anyone can get away with any crime. Fighting is commonplace. Attempting to murder someone by Summoning someone else to do the job is a regular practice. Not to mention Jericho, who is free to ambush and transform innocents into vampires if he wishes. Jackal-Squad once described her World as "The Purge but more lighthearted".
    • Mobius, a Blank White Void where every Mobian came from, is a less comedic, yet not as dark, example. Everyone didn't have a home and could only wander around. There were no necessities, not even food, to be met. Love was very rare. The only entertainment people had were songs they made up from their minds. The only other pastime besides wandering around was fighting the villains, who eventually stopped attacking and made Mobius more boring.
  • Crossover Alternate Universe: Technically, Welcome to My World is a Crossover between Sonic the Hedgehog and Real Life musicians, so there. The Pokemon Let's Go, Sonic! universe also applies. This becomes more literal when it is Revealed the Sonic characters were originally from the Mobius universe and the musicians from another universe.
  • Crystal Ball: Floee owns one, which gives an accurate image of the future of whoever rubbed it. She regularly shares it with others to see their futures.
  • Death by Childbirth: Blaze's biological mother died when she was pregnant with Blaze's would-be brother.
  • Death Is Cheap: If one manages to have the resurrecting Chaos Emeralds (which is usual), characters, such as Maria and Silver, don't stay dead permanently. However, Subverted when it is revealed if a character dies the fourth time, they're dead for good.
  • Denser and Wackier: In the World, some Sonic characters are given ridiculous personalities, treat their parents and interests as Serious Business, get into crazy quarrels into each other, and even go Ax-Crazy, all which ascend into Refuge in Audacity levels.
  • Disney Death:
    • The Jackal Squad were not actually killed off by Shadow. They were just sent off into the Null Space.
    • The first murder of Silver was All Just a Dream.
  • Divorce Is Temporary: At least for Jericho and Trisha. Since their large fallout over a petty incident, Trisha decided to give PewDiePie, whom she was afraid of for a long time because of his playthrough of Sonic EXE, a watch and ended up liking his videos. Jericho and Trisha then decide to give their then-strong relationship a second chance.
  • Dhampyr: Shadow the Hedgehog is part-vampire. Yeah...
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Jericho tries to act friendly to Marina, his forced bride, and proclaims he loves her more than her husband, Mephiles, will, and that he'll never hurt her. This doesn't work at first, because of Marina's deep fear of vampires, but she slowly falls for him. It turns out his love for Marina was genuine all along.
  • Don't Go in the Woods: Don't go in the giant forest, because Jericho will be waiting there, and if you're not part of the World, he will trap you.
  • The Dreaded:
    • Mephiles and all Kanye West fans. After forcefully separating Silver and Blaze and threatening death if they get back together, people became fearful of them, even of his father's fans, including Marina, just because of Guilt by Association. Fortunately, this died down after a while.
    • Jet Brown. After the 2009 incident, everyone else, but his only friend Sonic and his love interest Wave, are scared of him, believing he will go Ax-Crazy and beat others to unconsciousness.
    • Jericho. He's a vampire prone to attacking anyone else, except for Marina and Blade. People will often warn of him, especially in the country occupying half of the forest where he lives.
  • Driven by Envy: The main reason the '06 universe wants to invade the World and kill off its inhabitants is that they weren't getting much attention as the World's.
  • Evil, Inc.: T-Series is portrayed as this.
  • Evil Is Petty: Many villains are also plain old Jerkasses. For example, as Shadow the Hedgehog's plan once he succeeds in Taking Over The World:
    I can talk about how my video game is the BEST SONIC GAME in existence and will forever be until SEGA learns that there needs to he a sequel of that game.
  • Express Delivery: Pregnancy in Mobian hedgehogs last only a week. On top of that, childbirth lasts for 2 days.
  • Face–Heel Turn: In a hilarious reversal of the canon example, all of the Diamond Cutters, except for Mimic, turned against Whisper and tried to attack her.
  • Face of a Thug: Mimic in his Game Face Sonic form resembles Sonic EXE, so much that everyone was scared of him and ready to banish him out of the World. Whisper was the only one who was able to find Mimic as friendly first, and was able to convince everyone else but Trisha of his true nature.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Maria was killed by Shadow's birth father. Let that sink in. No wonder Shadow ran away and became dark afterwards.
  • Fandom Rivalry: In-Universe with Kanye West vs. Eminem in the Hip Hop province, to the point Mephiles and Shadow outright Rival and hate each other. Rappers and their Mobians often can't decide the King of Rap and bow down to either one.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Jericho flashes his sharp vampire fangs whenever feeling angry.
  • Fantastic Racism: Wolves are viewed by everyone else as shifty and thus discriminated against, just because two are cybercriminals and one just likes to annoy his neighbor to death. Even the friendly ones like Gizmo and Whisper receive this treatment.
  • Fictional Earth: There's just one big supercontient with an absurdly giant forest in the middle. It's split into two countries, one with Jericho (and prone to vampire attacks) and other with Trisha (the safer one). Each country is divided into provinces based on music genres. The planet itself is slightly smaller than Earth.
  • Fourth Date Marriage: In the evening of the day of Mephiles and Marina both met, Mephiles proposed marriage to Marina and she accepted.
  • Friendly Rivalry: Sonic and Jet, based on their parents' relationship. They are mutual friends, but will go into a harmless shuffle once in a while.
  • Full-Name Basis: The characters address themselves by both their name and their parents' family name, and occasionally address others by this as well.
  • The Gadfly: Gadget loves asking his neighbor Infinite annoying questions a lot, which is the reason he's the only one who accepts such questions.
  • Game Changer: Maria, Shadow's Lost Lenore whose death led to his villainy, is ultimately resurrected, which softens Shadow's personality and leads to many things changing for better.
  • Gun Nut: Shadow the Hedgehog keeps every gun he has used in his solo game and will fire upon the inhabitants of the World with them.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Mephiles can be provoked and angered by something at least playfully annoying, often hissing and shutting his laptop off. Justified as like Kanye West, he was bipolar disorder.
  • Jericho. Trisha warns that people should be careful about what they say around Jericho, as a few seemingly-harmless words will enrage him to full vampire mode. She learned this the hard way.
  • Harmless Villain: Zig-Zagged with T-Series and their Co-Dragons. Most of the time, they're only seeking to hack everyone's computer for a petty reason, but when the '06 universe comes attacking, they'll be happy to assist them.
  • Hates Wearing Dresses: Marina, a Tomboy, despises dresses, only wearing a white one if she's the bride at a wedding.
  • History with Celebrity: Taken Up to Eleven. All of their adoptive parents are celebrities.
  • Humanlike Animal Aging: Subverted. Given Mobians are Funny Animals, Mobians develop the same as humans. However, while their ages are in normal years, they age in Mobian years and a normal year is about 1.28 Mobian years. This is to Hand Wave how Mephiles and Marina were able to marry and have a baby at the age of 14 (they are 18 in Mobian years).
  • Hybrid Monster: Eclipse the Vampire Werewolf.
  • Just Friends: Jet and Wave. Jet once tried to ask Wave on a date, but she swiftly rejected. Considering the history of their parents' relationship, this is understandable. Later on, as Jet and Wave get together and decide to not let their parents' troubles affect them.
    Wave: I would have dated Jet if his dad didn't do what he did to my mom. Jet's dad was mean to my mom.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • Shadow Mathers summoning Shadow the Hedgehog, then the pair turning super and attempting to eradicate anyone isn't an Eminem fan.
    • Jericho biting and turning Saint West into a vampire, his first victim who just wandered into the forest innocently.
    • Shadow the Hedgehog kidnapping Silver and Floee's German Shepard puppy and then electrocuting it. Yep, literally kicking the dog. Though Shadow reveals the puppy's his and he electrocuted it just to keep it from running away, it's still a cruel act.
    • Shadow Mathers and the Hedgehog attempting to murder an innocent person, and ending up killing Silver.
  • Leitmotif: Each character has a theme song, each by their parent (all of them can be heard here):
    • Sonic: "God's Plan"
    • Tails: "I'm Just a Kid"
    • Knuckles: "I Hate Everything About You"

    • Julie-Su: "Try Everything"
    • Cosmo: "Stressed Out"
    • Eclipse: "Exposed" by Nigahiga
    • Eclipse the Darkling: "Steve"
    • Mephiles the Dark, Mephalor, and Mephalina: "Violent Crimes" by Kanye West
    • Reveron: "T-Series" by JusReign
    • Gold: "Shatter Me"
    • Rough and Tumble: "Bangarang"
    • The '06 Universe: "His World" (once you hear it, you better start running)
  • Lightmare Fuel: Characters attempting to murder others by Summoning entities and commanding them to go after, and a not-so-friendly vampire are generally sources of nightmare fuel, but here in the World, because of how ridiculously they're played out, they end up as hilarious and into Refuge in Audacity. However, the '06 universe is rather different.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Sonic and friends tend to share personalities with their parents. Mephiles is the most blatant example, being egotistical and rude. This becomes more literal when their parents' Mobian forms resemble after their adopted children.
  • Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!: Initially, Mobians are seen co-existing with humans. This later is reverted when every human becomes a Mobian.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: The roleplay seeks to include every Mobian characternote  that has debuted in the video games, comics, and cartoons, not to mention Original Characters are accepted too. Also considering the high amount of popular contemporary artists...
  • The Lost Lenore: Since Maria's death, Shadow had kept a cold and sinister demeanor since, and declared himself to never fall in love ever again. Fortunately, Maria was brought back to life via Chaos Emeralds and Shadow has shed this off.
  • Love-Obstructing Parents: Since his divorce, Shadow's biological father didn't want his son to date anyone. When he caught Shadow hiding with his girlfriend, Maria, he murdered her.
  • Love Theme:
    • Sonic/Blaze: "If I Can't Have You" by Shawn Mendes
    • Mephiles/Marina: "Criminal" by Britney Spears
    • Silver/Floee: "Our Song" by Taylor Swift
    • Jericho/Marina: "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" by Elton John
    • Mimic/Whisper: "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran
    • Infinite/Tangle: "I Like Me Better" - Lauv
  • Love Triangle: Mephiles, Marina, and Jericho. Mephiles and Marina are already married, while Jericho has a Villainous Crush on her. Though they eventually try to solve the love triangle by having Marina marry Jericho also, Mephiles and Jericho still show serious disdain to each other.
  • Magical Accessory: Marina's pink hair bow allows her to have Mephiles' superpowers.
  • Married in the Future: Floee's Crystal Ball reveals that Silver and Floee's daughter, Moon, and Jericho and Marina's son, Blade, will be married in the future.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Infinite mistakes Gadget as gay, because Gadget keeps asking weird questions to him. Gadget really is heterosexual and just likes provoking Infinite. (In the World no one is homosexual.)
  • Monster Progenitor: Jericho's parents were the first vampires, though their son, Jericho, was the one who turned the whole World population into vampires.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Jericho attempted this to his Love Triangle rival, Mephiles, twice. The first time, he had to retreat back to the forest at sunrise. The second time, he knocked Mephiles and his family unconscious and escaped with Marina. Afterwards, he focuses more on biting Mephiles rather than bringing him down.
  • Narrative Profanity Filter:
    Mephiles: YOU'RE LUCKY THIS IS SCRATCH AND I CAN'T SAY WHAT I WANNA SAY!
  • Never Live It Down: In-Universe with the Real Life 2009 incident of Chris Brown beating Rihanna. His adoptive son, Jet, has been feared by everyone else since then. Even Wave, his (formerly) unrequited love interest, refused to date him all because of that.
  • Nice Guy: Silver Timberlake is the nicest of the Sonic characters here. He'll do anything for his beloved, Floee, and is also an Actual Pacifist.
  • Nobody Poops: Sonic's answer to if anyone ever needs to go to the bathroom:
  • Official Couple: Sonic and Blaze (formerly Amy, Happily Married), Marina and Mephiles and Jericho (all Happily Married), Knuckles and Rouge (Happily Married), Tails and Cream, Silver and Floee (formerly Blaze, Happily Married), Shadow and Maria (Happily Married), Scourge and Fiona, Mimic and Whisper, Infinite and Tangle, Jet and Wave, Fang and Amy
  • Original Character:
    • Marina by Jackal-Squad (and her Author Avatar), and Twilight and Blade also by Jackal-Squad. There's also Floee and her daughter Moon, belonging to another user.
    • Jericho, who doesn't belong to either Jackal-Squad or any roleplaying member, but rather to DeviantArt user Tri-Jean. Jackal-Squad just found and became interested in him, eventually deciding to add him to the World.
      • Trisha, Eclipse, and Reveron are also by Tri-Jean.
    • Mephalor and Mephalina, the siblings of Mephiles the Dark, which are by a YouTuber Jackal-Squad's a fan of.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Vampires in the World, with Jericho the Vampire Hedgehog and his son Blade being the only born ones, live on blood, are immortal, able to turn others into vampires via bitenote , can burn in sunlight, show no reflection in mirror, are weak against Wooden Stakes, garlic, and their invididual Achilles Heels, hold various supernatural powersnote , accumulate intelligence faster as they grow, and have sparkly skin.
    • Fortuantely, for those transformed via Viral Transformation, they can be reverted back to their normal forms if their transformer bites them again.
  • Parental Abandonment: Inverted. Everyone decided to leave their biological parents at their will and be adopted by their favorite musician, apparently because they were jealous of Mephiles doing so.
  • Pet the Dog:
  • Police are Useless: Taken to the next level. There are no police and any sort of law enforcement in the universe, which means folks like Mephiles, Shadow, and Jericho can get away with their Ax Craziness.
  • Polyamory: Because there are no laws, this relationship type is allowed. Marina has two husbands, Mephiles and Jericho, as the solution to the love triangle. Jericho is also in a relationship with Trisha.
  • Rage Quit: Those with higher temper will tend to shut off their laptops if they receive an annoying question. Jericho takes this Up to Eleven by slashing his laptop, and then spawning a new one out of thin air. He has a closet filled with slashed laptops already.
  • Real-Person Fic: While the roleplay is centered about the Real Life musicians' lives, it focuses on the Sonic characters more than them and how their lives are influenced by their parents.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Some of the antics some of the characters go into are so ridiculous to be taken seriously. For example, Jet stealing everyone's Summoning Ritual instruction books, Shadow triggering a power outrage at Mephiles' wedding and breaking everyone's electronics just to get some wires, and simply the idea of summoning someone and commanding them as a murder method.
  • Resurrected Romance: Shadow was able to resurrect his long lost Maria with Chaos Emeralds, and boy, do things get better.
  • The Reveal: A big one. Every Sonic character and their Real Life parents were originally from other universes. Originally, the World was just an empty supercontinent with a big forest in the middle where Jericho and Trisha lived, until suddenly everyone else appeared out of nowhere and moved into what Jericho claimed to be his land. He states this to be the reason he enjoys attacking others. This leads to implications that the World is apparently Jackal-Squad's imagination in physical form (hence "My World" and all sorts of craziness that happens).
    • The real reason Jericho had a big Villainous Crush on Marina: Before everyone moved in, Marina appeared in the World and met Jericho, who fell in love with Marina. Marina later kept this as a secret.
  • Running Gag:
    • Mephiles summoning the Dark whenever he is ticked off.
    • Mephiles (or someone else) hissing/growling and shutting off his laptop (or if Shadow or Jericho, destroy them).
    • A wolf character howling and then all of the other wolves howling also.
    • A remote controller found to be chewed on, by Eclipse.
  • Satellite Love Interest: Marina was only introduced to be Mephiles' girlfriend (later wife), while Mephiles was offered a cat girl as a potential girlfriend.
  • Savage Wolves: Played with. Many, especially Tangle, view and discriminate wolves as scary and dangerous creatures, though the ones that pose the most threat just like to hack computers most of the time.
  • Self-Deprecation: The World has plenty of lawless violence and even attempted murder. Silver the Hedgehog of the 06 universe's reason for disliking the World: "It's WAY too violent."
  • Serious Business: Some Mobians take their interests too seriously:
    • Kanye West for Mephiles, and the most blatant example. He prefers and will only associate with everything related to him over everything else. He only went with Marina because she was a Kanye West Fangirl. He'll also gladly exterminate anyone who's not a Kanye West fan with the Dark.
    • To a lesser extant, Eminem for Shadow.
      Shadow: Where else? To destroy everyone that's not ourselves or PURE Eminem fans.
    • Jericho is an avid PewDiePie fan and broke up from Trisha just because she told him to stop watching PewDiePie.
  • Shock and Awe: Eclipse uses electric attacks, which is why he bites on electric wiring frequently (to charge up the attacks).
  • The Shut-In: Jericho, because of him being a burnable-by-sunlight Vampire, has lived most of his life locked up in his own house alone in the dark forest watching PewDiePie. Trisha is also this, because of how much she is used to the dark.
  • Small Reference Pools: Most of their parents are well-known musicians an average person can name. However, some, like Tails', Knuckles', and Infinite's, are rather obscure to the general public, consisting of musicians only popular within certain genres, One Hit Wonders, indie musicians with some online presence, and otherwise small-name musicians.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers:
    • Silver and Blaze. They fell in love at a young age and were together, until one day, Mephiles moved next to them, intervened with their relationship, and due to his hatred against Taylor Swift (Blaze's mother), viciously separated them. Under the threat of Mephiles summoning the Dark if Blaze and Silver were to get back together, they were forced to move on from their relationship.
    • Sonic and Amy has now suffered the same fate, because of Sonic's father's heated beef with Mephiles'.
  • Summoning Ritual: Mephiles and Sonic, the only ones capable of summoning at this point, can summon someone from the '06 universe by drawing a giant star, placing a candle on each point, placing hand in the middle, and chanting a rhyme. The rhymes currently known of can summon either Mephilesnote , Shadownote , Silvernote , or everyonenote . Everyone used to know how to summon, until Jet stole everyone but Mephiles and Sonic's ritual instruction books.
  • This Is a Work of Fiction: Jackal-Squad regularly ends her comments with something like "(ROLEPLAY PURPOSES ONLY!)" whenever there's some violent action, reference to violence, or suggestive themes, just to make clear that they're all fiction and not let the strictly-minded Scratch Team take them out of context.
    • If an artwork of a character depicts them in a menancing way, usually with a deadly weapon, Jackal-Squad will add a statement that the character is benign in the World and won't harm the askers.
  • Toilet Seat Divorce: Jericho and his ex-girlfriend, Trisha, were in the strongest bond ever and would risk their lives for each other. They broke up because she told him to stop watching PewDiePienote . Though later Subverted, as it is Revealed they also broke up because she emailed the instructions on crossing into the World with (fortunately, accidentally) everyone in the other universes, much to the extremely severe dismay of Jericho, then Double Subverted as Jericho cares more about if Trisha likes PewDiePie or not. (Fortunately, Trisha and Jericho have decided to rekindle their relationship.)
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Marina and Trisha, Jericho's two Love Interests. Marina only wears masculine clothing, hates makeup, and enjoys playing video games. Trisha is more shy, adores makeup and dresses, and can be scared easily, especially of Sonic EXE.
  • Utility Magic: Jericho is able to run plumbing, heating, electricity, and Internet connection in his house with his vampire powers.
  • Wedding Day:
  • We Will Meet Again: Shadow the Hedgehog after his defeat in the first battle:
    It seems you guys have gotten better at fighting since our last encounter. You may have won this time, but next time, you won't be so lucky.
  • Wham Episode: Shadow the Hedgehog kidnapping Silver and Amy into his home universe. The inhabitants of the seemingly-Canon '06 universe suddenly are revealed to not be so friendly after all.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Marina does, under that giant YEEZUS shirt.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?:
    • Mephiles the Dark is scared of demons. Interestingly, his canon counterpart is a demon.
    • Tangle the Lemur is scared of wolves, partly because of her boyfriend's attitude to them. This was enough to end her friendship with Whisper, whom she thought was a jackal.
  • World of Weirdness: The eponymous World. Summoning Rituals and vampire attacks are just some part of it.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Ironically for someone related to Chris Brown, Jet, who is quite agressive, would never attack a girl, despite what the public perceives him.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Even Mephiles, who likes to hurt others with his summons, won't dare to hurt a child like Cream.
  • You Won't Like Me When I'm Angry:
    • When Mephiles is enraged enough, no matter how severe your offense was, he'll summon Mephiles the Dark from the '06 universe and let him wreck chaos (or not really).
    • Shadow will equip Frickin' Laser Beams and also be happy to summon his '06 self.
    • Jet, reflecting his father's violent tendencies, will hit someone (except for Sonic, Mephiles, and girls) when he is angry.
