Welcome to the Piterpicher sandbox! A sandbox for a guy named Piterpicher, it contains drafts for work pages, pantheon profiles or other stuff he wants to finish, but he is lazy or moved on to something else. He sometimes finishes them, though.

This is a very in use sandbox, please don't cut it unless it wasn't edited in three years, or something like that.

  • Allies on Wheels: Other vandals, GUAE Trollkaiger
  • Enemies on Wheels: Wikipe-tan, Wikipedia admins (including Jimbo Wales), Twilight Sparkle, Rabbit, most deities in the Justice house
  • The legendary Wikipedia vandal who joined in August 20, 2004. His first vandalism was replacing page content with "Pagename has been vandalised by the Willy on Wheels". Later, with different accounts, started to move lots of pages to "Pagename on Wheels!". Some of his more risque trolling involved posting pictures of penises.
  • He uses Mozilla Firefox and a 64-bit machine, later upgraded to a Mac Mini. Tabbed browsing also helped him a lot.
  • His vandalism record on one account before being blocked is 175 pages. He wanted to reach 500, and even created a "Willy's 500" event! The winner would apparently have won a wind-up Willy on Wheels.
  • As a joke, he was once nominated for adminship. He earned 18 support votes, 5 opposition votes and no neutrality votes.
  • Surprisingly enough, one of the Wikipedia admins, Larry Pienazek, actually thought his vandalism was funny.
  • And if you though he was limited to the English Wikipedia, think again. He attacked the German Wikipedia on 18th December 2004, the French Wikipedia on 5th January 2005, the Polish Wikipedia on 19th January 2005, and the Esperanto Wikipedia on 15th February 2005.
  • Since he's so popular, he has found many imitators. Even nowadays, many people are making pages on Wheels. If you make an account name that contains "On Wheels", you may get banned quickly.
  • Luckily, he left TV Tropes untouched. But we do know he exists, see an example on Funny.Wikipedia.
  • A document by himself, on himself, can be found here.
  • He has a user page on Uncyclopedia here, and he was an actual contributor there until 2006, even getting some positive recognition.
  • He is Jimbo's worst nightmare. Even after over a decade, he still haunts him in his dreams.
  • He must Construct Additional Wheels.

    Video Game/And Everything Started To Fall (Status: Definitely tropeable) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2478_v3.jpg

And Everything Started To Fall is a video game released in 2009. It's a vertical platformer in which you play as a boy, who grows up, and as he does, the platforms start falling.


This game provides the following tropes:

  • Block Puzzle: There are simple "push blocks to get more height" puzzles in the old age section.
  • Death Is a Slap on the Wrist: Dying results in making the protagonist return to the start of the previous section, but they aren't long and there are Infinite lives. The actual death at the end is not this, though.
  • Foregone Conclusion: You die. This should be expected in a game about life and growing up.
  • Retraux: The graphics are mostly blue, white, black, and Atari style.
  • Rise to the Challenge: As the title suggests, everything is falling and you have to keep jumping up to survive.
  • You Have Researched Breathing: Each stage of life gives you new abilities which seem very basic. Now, a baby not being able to jump is understandable, but it's odd how being a teenager is needed to crawl, an adult to swim, or an old man to push boxes.

    Video Game/Pokemon Topaz (Status: Definitely tropeable) 

Pokemon Topaz is a video game released in 2007.

This game provides examples of:

  • Big "OMG!": Chav Hayden's response to losing is a simple "OMG!"
  • Cool Car: Instead of a bike, you can get a 4X4 or sport car as means of faster movement.
  • Darker and Edgier: This hack has you steal things from others, goths slitting their wrists and lots of swearing. Clearly not kid friendly, unlike the official Pokemon series.
  • Forced Tutorial: Fellow Team Rocket member Seth ask you if you know how to catch Pokemon, then shows how do it anyway.
  • Hero Antagonist: The police is this game's equivalent to an evil team.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie: The Hippies. They use Grass type Pokemon and accuse you of thinking they're gay.
  • Odd Name Out: If you're playing as a boy, you have four default names: James, Alex, Joe and Hyoma.
  • Surfer Dude: The Surfers. Surfer Edmond even starts his battle by saying "Ride my waves dude!"
  • Villain Protagonist: In this game, you're a Team Rocket executive who steals money and items from other trainers.
  • Wanton Cruelty to the Common Comma: The word "I" when used in first person is often not capitalised, and there's a bunch of missed apostrophes.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Instead of trees, kids block your way. So you have to Cut... er, Slice them so they disappear.

    Video Game/Reactance (Status: Almost ready to launch) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/reactance2bullethell.jpg
The amount of Bullet Hell you can expect from the second game.

Reactance is a video game created by Apprentice Chief for Kongregate in 2011. It's a monochrome top-down shooter in which you control a spaceship dodging bullets and buying upgrades with money.

The game received a colored sequel in 2012, with much more customisation, more levels, and overall improvements.

Play the original here, and the sequel here.


The games provide examples of:

  • Bullet Hell: Not at first, but the bullet density gets very thick after a while, and it's ridiculous by the endgame.
  • Fragile Speedster: The Bullet hull. It has the highest speed and rate of fire. However, its HP, speed, and damage are low.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: The Laser hull. Its stats are mediocre across the board, with the exception of focus.
  • Marathon Boss: The last three bosses have a huge amount of health, and their bullet patterns are really tough.
  • Mighty Glacier: The Rocket hull. It has lots of health, high regen, and a weapon that deals high damage. However, it has the lowest speed, fire rate, and focus.
  • Nintendo Hard: You've got plenty of features that may seem like they'd make this game a cakewalk, such as regeneration, focus, upgrades, bombs, and mouse control. However, the amount of bullets and the bullets they dish out, as well as the bosses with lots of health will really put your skills to the test regardless of the previously mentioned help.
  • No-Damage Run: Levels can be cleared without taking damage, any that are cleared that way will be marked with a star.
  • Regenerating Health: Your ship regenerates health slowly and you can upgrade it to be faster. If you're not going for a no damage clear, you'll need it.

    Video Game/The Mask (Status: Definitely tropeable) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/masksnes95.jpg
Smokin' on the SNES.

The Mask


This game provides examples of:

  • 1-Up: Picking up an additional mask grants an extra life.
  • Boring, but Practical: The punch. It doesn't do a lot of damage, but it doesn't require any points to use, so you'll rely on it often.
  • Boss Warning Siren: The Mask's facial features will fly out when he sees a boss.
  • Drop the Hammer: The Mask can use a hammer. It's main purpose is breaking alarm clocks.
  • Plot Hole: The final boss is Dorian wearing the mask, yet you are controlling Stanley wearing the mask. This makes no sense since the mask can only be worn by one person at one time.

Eevee voiced by: Aoi Yuuki

Eevee is an adorable mammalian Pokémon that is unique in the Pokémon world as it has the potential to evolve into many branching evolutionary paths. Originally it had three, but has steadily increased in number and now there are currently eight known members. They are collectively called Eeveelutions by fans, and later in the games and other official material. Eevee and all of its evolutions are designed with a very cute, basic sort of appeal and remain fan-favorites.


Shared Tropes

  • Action Initiative: Eevee and all of the Eeveelutions can learn Quick Attack. Eevee also learns Baby-Doll Eyes while Glaceon also gets Ice Shard.
  • Badass Adorable: The Eeveelutions are small, cute dog- or cat-like creatures... with a base stat total of 525 (which is the same as Lucario's, and very slightly lower than most fully evolved starter Pokémon).
  • Breakout Character: Eevee is one of the most popular Pokémon, and it and its evolutions get marketed almost as much as Pikachu, Lucario, and the starters. In Yellow and several spinoffs, including Pokémon Conquest, Pokémon Colosseum, and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, and the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series and Pokémon Quest, an Eevee or Eeveelution is even used alongside or in place of other, usual starter Pokémon. Another spinoff, Pokémon GO, turned Eevee into one of the more-common Pokémon to find in the real world, though it is still far from being a Com Mon.note  Several important characters in the anime, such as Ash's companions and rivals, have or had an Eevee on their team at some point before evolving them into one of their forms. It eventually got to the point where Eevee co-stars alongside franchise mascot Pikachu in the Nintendo Switch title Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!.
  • Cartoon Creature: It isn't clear what kind of animal they're supposed to be based on, but they take inspiration from dogs, foxes, cats, rabbits, and, in Vaporeon's case, fish. Flareon in particular acts a lot like a dog in Pokémon-Amie/Refresh.
  • Combat Medic: They can be bred to know Wish and be tutored to know Heal Bell.
  • Elemental Powers: Eevee itself is a Normal-type. It changes to one other type, based on its elemental affinity. Vaporeon is Water. Jolteon is Electric. Flareon is Fire. Espeon is Psychic-type, but also has an association with the Sun and Light. Umbreon is Dark and more closely associated with the moon and darkness compared to most Dark-types, although it still learns some of the underhanded moves typically used by them. Leafeon is Grass. Glaceon is Ice. Sylveon is Fairy.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Eevee's Gen 1 Eeveelutions all incorporate its mane in some way, and they all have the same dark eyes. This pattern was dropped for all the other Eeveelutions, which lack manes and have distinct eyes.
  • Family Eye Resemblance: All Eeveelutions have distinctive almond-shaped eyes with white highlights.
  • Later Installment Weirdness: The later Eeveelutions that debuted since Gen IV have incoporated distinctively-colored paw markings, which earlier Eeveelutions don't have.
  • Make a Wish: They can all learn Wish through breeding, but Vaporeon and Umbreon do the best job of passing Wishes to their teammates due to having the highest HP stats.
  • Signature Move: Oddly, Shadow Ball tends to be associated with them a lot in the anime specifically, likely because of its notability as one of the few coverage moves the entire family can learn. The entire family is notably associated with Baton Pass and Wish.
  • Starter Mon: In a couple of games, such as Pokémon Colosseum, Pokémon XD, Pokémon Conquest, and most notably Let's Go, Eevee!, Eevee is the starter Pokémon rather then the typical starters (which are a trio of Grass, Fire and Water Pokémon). This works well since Eevee is able to evolve into a number of types. They also appear as the rivial's starter mon in Pokémon Yellow.
  • The Team: There tend to be groups of trainers, sometimes even a Sibling Team, that use each of the evolutions in both the games and spinoffs. They began as a Power Trio in Generation I with Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon. Then became a Three Plus Two Five-Man Band with Espeon and Umbreon. Followed the Rule of Seven in Gen IV after Leafeon and Glaceon appeared. And now they sit at 8 with Sylveon.
  • Third-Option Adaptation: In spinoffs which don't use the official starters, Eevee or one of its evolutions have been used as a starter Pokémon instead.Explanation  This even carries over to the main series; Blue starts with an Eevee in Yellow rather than Charmander, Bulbasaur, or Squirtle.

Species specific

  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Subverted with Sylveon, since its accessories are actually part of its body; the trailing ribbons are feelers.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Eevee's unique Z-Move "Extreme Evoboost" has it be empowered by all the Eeveelutions and buffs all of its stats to maximum (with the exception of Evasion and Accuracy). Granted, Eevee's base stats still stink, making the boosts not too useful... but that's where Baton Pass comes in.
  • Anti-Magic: Espeon's Hidden Ability, Magic Bounce, reflects all non-damaging moves aimed at it back to the user.
  • The Artifact: In the Spaceworld 1997 build of Pocket Monsters 2, Umbreon was a Poison-type. In the final version (as Gold and Silver), Umbreon's type had changed to Dark, yet its Pokédex entries still mention its "poisonous sweat".
  • Berserk Button: Touching Espeon's forehead gem or the yellow bands on Umbreon's ears in Pokémon-Amie/Refresh will result in a Death Glare.
  • Boss Battle: Sylveon is Valerie's, the sixth gym leader of Kalos, signature Mon.
  • Carbuncle Creature: Espeon sports a red jewel on its forehead.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Umbreon likes to throw its poisonous sweat in enemy eyes, as well as going for the throat.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Nowhere is it stated that Umbreon is malicious, cunning, or evil in general like most Dark-types. It even evolves with max happiness.
  • David vs. Goliath: Sylveon's Ultra Sun Pokédex entry states that it's known to pick fights with dragon Pokémon much bigger than itself. Being a Fairy-type, it'll probably win.
  • Determinator: Flareon's Hidden Ability is Guts, which boosts its Attack when afflicted with a status ailment.
  • Elemental Absorption: Jolteon and Vaporeon get healed from Electric and Water moves, respectively, thanks to Volt Absorb and Water Absorb. Flareon uses Flash Fire to power up its own Fire-type moves.
  • The Fair Folk: Some Dex entries and comments in other places showcase that Sylveon can have a manipulative and sadistic side, much like with classic depictions of fey.
  • Feed It with Fire: Flareon's ability Flash Fire makes it immune to Fire attacks and powers up its own.
  • Foil:
    • Gen II's Espeon and Umbreon. Both are friendship-based Eeveelutions with Synchronize as their main abilities who revolve around day and night and specialize in Special Attack and Special Defense respectively. Espeon is a Fragile Speedster and Glass Cannon combo built around making use of its offensive potential, while Umbreon is a Stone Wall with middling offensive stats who is rather skilled at causing debuffs.
    • Gen IV introduced Leafeon and Glaceon. Both of these Eeveelutions come to be when leveling Eevee up near a certain rock: a moss-covered rock for Leafeon and an ice-covered rock for Glaceon. Leafeon is more physical-based and works well in Sunny Day while Glaceon is special-based and works better in Hail.
  • Healing Factor:
    • If Vaporeon has the Hydration ability and heavy rain is in effect, it will be cured of Standard Status Effects at the end of each turn. It also learns the move Aqua Ring, which gives it a small amount of HP each turn.
    • If Glaceon has its Hidden Ability, Ice Body, it will regain some HP at the end of each turn during Hail.
  • Hoist by Their Own Petard:
    • Espeon and Umbreon's Synchronize cause an opponent who burned, paralyzed, or poisoned them to suffer with them. Espeon's Hidden Ability Magic Bounce reflects status moves back at the attacker.
    • Jolteon and Flareon's Hidden Abilities Quick Feet and Guts boost their godly Speed and Attack, respectively, when they are afflicted with a status condition.
  • Invisibility: Vaporeon is able to camouflage in water.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: Glaceon. This trait fits as it's an ice-type.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Glaceon like to cover themselves in very sharp icicles, then rush their enemies.
  • Informed Ability: Umbreon are supposedly able to spew toxins from their pores, and they even boast about it Mystery Dungeon, but the only Poison move they're able to learn is Toxic, and only via TM. This is actually a remnant from a certain point in development. Umbreon was originally intended to be a Poison-type, but they didn't change the Pokédex entries when its type was switched to Dark. note 
  • Kill It with Fire: Flareon in the wild like to roast their prey before snacking down on them.
  • Late Character Syndrome: Thanks to Ice Rocks being location-specific, and the general late-to-endgame availability of Ice-types and ice-themed areas, poor Glaceon often ends up coming in at too late a point for most players to consider using it on their team. So far, the rawest deal it has yet is in Pokémon Sun and Moon, where the Ice Rock isn't found until deep into those games' equivalent to Victory Road.
  • Lunacy: Umbreon and Sylveon are both strongly associated with the moon, the former evolving through high happiness at night and being capable of learning Moonlight, while the latter, like many Fairy-types, shows its lunar association through Moonblast. As mentioned below, both of them resemble the mythical Moon Rabbit.
  • Magikarp Power: Zigzagged. Naturally, Eevee are encouraged to be evolved and are more average and underpowered compared to their evolutions. They do, however, learn a small normal-type movepool of their own in case you want to keep them as they are, which expands in later installments. Also, since a large part of all the Eeveelutions' attacks are Normal-type anyway, they profit more often from same-type attack bonus.
    • In Sun/Moon, Eevee (and only Eevee) has access to an exclusive Z-move, Extreme Evoboost, that raises all of its stats by two levels.
    • Eevee itself leaves much to be desired... until it learns Last Resort, a 140 Base Power move. Which it gets STAB from, being a Normal-type, and does double damage if said Eevee has Adaptability. To put this in perspective, Adaptability-powered Last Resort has 30 more base damage than Explosion. Sure, its base stats hold it back a bit, and Last Resort requires using the rest of Eevee's moveset first, but few Pokémon ever get a move with that much punch.
  • Master of None: Unlike most Normal-typed Pokémon, Eevee is normally unable to learn most elemental attacks outside a few exceptions. This is mostly to prevent its evolutions from learning attacks outside of their types. The biggest exception is the Partner Eevee you get in Pokémon: Let's Go Eevee, who has access to a number of elemental moves exclusive to it. However, this Eevee cannot evolve into its many forms.
  • The Medic: Umbreon, Espeon, and Leafeon are capable of self-healing, and their moves are effectively identical, with different namesnote . The entire family is also capable of learning Wish to pass healing to a teammate.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Vaporeon is a mermaid fox cat-fish... thing.
  • Moon Rabbit: Umbreon is based on the legend about it. Sylveon has hints of this too, being rather rabbit-like and associated with the moon.
  • Mundane Utility:
    • Sylveon seems tailor-made to deal with Horde Battles in Gen VI. It learns Skill Swap at a much earlier level than anything else that gets it naturally, letting it scan each individual member of the horde to find out what abilities they have, and thus if there's something worth catching in this group. If not, it has Swift and Dazzling Gleam, which, with its high Special Attack, will wipe out all enemies instantly, letting you move on to the next battle.
    • Sylveon's normal Ability is Cute Charm. While its usefulness in battle is very situational due to requiring the opponent to be the opposite gender to take effect, it has the useful property of causing Pokémon of the opposite gender of the owner to appear in wild encounters (if the user is in front of the party) more frequently. It is also the only Pokémon with this ability that is predominately male, making Sylveon very useful if you need to find Pokémon with low female/male ratios like the starters in the Friend Safari.
  • Nocturnal Mooks: Umbreon can show up at night as a rare encounter when wild Eevee do an SOS Call, making it and Espeon (during the day) the first Eeveeulutions that can be found in the wild.
  • Nonstandard Character Design:
    • In Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, there's a special female Eevee, if picked as a starter, with a larger light patch on the tips of her tail that resembles a heart shape, similarly to female Pikachu (and Cosplay Pikachu). This trait is unique and isn't carried over to other female Eevee.
    • Jolteon is the only one lacking a tail.
  • Not Completely Useless: Sylveon's Hidden Ability Pixilate, which turns Normal-type moves into Fairy-type and boosts them. It doesn't seem all that great due to its lack of Normal moves to abuse. That is, except Hyper Voice, which turns into a 117 Power Special Fairy move that goes through substitutes and barriers — much stronger than Moonblast. And if Hyper Voice isn't available, there's also Swift, which, with STAB and Pixilate's bonus boost, becomes essentially a sure-hit Moonblast that hits all targets in Doubles and Triples.
  • Odd Name Out: In Japanese and Korean, Umbreon stands out from the rest of the family, as unlike the Elemental Theme Naming, it's simply Blacky, which only refers to its appearance (and possibly lucky, though it's not clear). This is fixed for all other languages.
  • One Steve Limit: Jolteon's Japanese name is almost the same as Zapdos'note , the only difference being the letter "S".
  • Planimal: Leafeon has leaves growing on its body and its ears and tail are made of leaves as well.
  • Poisonous Person: Umbreon is not a Poison-type, but the Pokédex states that it has the ability to spray poison sweat from its pores. It can learn Toxic, but then again, so can pretty much every other Pokémon in existence capable of using TMs, and Synchronize requires it to be poisoned before it can poison something else.
    • This was eventually explained by the release of a very early version of Gold, in which Umbreon was originally a Poison-type that evolved with a Poison Stone; when subsequent development changed Umbreon to a Dark-type that evolved by friendship at night instead, these mentions became the only remnant of the earlier design.
  • Polar Opposite Twins:
  • Poor, Predictable Rock: An underlying problem for all of these Pokémon, who are all hindered by having utterly pathetic movepools. Outside of Shadow Ball, Iron Tail, and two of their Egg Moves (Stored Power and Synchronoise), they don't get many strong options outside of their STAB moves. While some can use Hidden Power to make up for this, those with low Special Attack (namely, Umbreon and Leafeon) are left out of luck.
  • Power of the Sun: Espeon and Leafeon both have a strong association with the sun, the former due to evolving from max happiness during the day and knowing the move Morning Sun, while the latter have both its normal and Hidden Abilities be associated with Sunny Day. Both of their Pokédex entries state that they need sunlight, the former for its powers and the latter for its nutrients.
  • Power Up Let Down: While Espeon recieved Magic Bounce, one of the best abilities in the game, as its Hidden Ability in Gen V, Umbreon was left with... Inner Focus, which is highly situational at best, and worse than Synchronize at worst. At least Umbreon is slow and sturdy, and thus has lots of chances to flinch during battle (which Inner Focus prevents), making Inner Focus not an outright Useless Useful Spell for it.
    • Poor Flareon... it received Guts in Gen V and finally received the coveted Flare Blitz in Gen VI, but because it is a Fire-type, it cannot be Burned to activate Guts, making it rely on Poison or the inconsistent Paralysis and Sleep. Poison damage combined with the recoil from Flare Blitz with its already poor HP stat means that even though Guts-boosted Flareon can hit like a truck, it can't do so for very long before knocking itself out.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Male Sylveon are very capable fighters despite their pastel colors and ribbon-like feelers. Most of the Eeveelutions appear to look feminine despite the 7 to 1 gender ratio favoring males.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Umbreon has red sclerae and black pupils, which gives it a menacing look to it. It is also the only Eeveelution with visible pupils because it would be legitimately creepy if it had the same kind of eyes that its relatives have.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Eevee itself has always been popular due to its adorable looks. People have also wondered what kind of mammal it's supposed to be based on for years. This trait isn't lost on its evolutions, either.
  • Secret Art:
    • Morning Sun for Espeon and Moonlight for Umbreon (both attacks are HP restoring moves), during their debut Generation.
    • Apart from Pikachu, they are the only Pokémon to have been given away at events knowing Celebrate.
    • In Sun and Moon, Eevee gains the unique Z-Move "Extreme Evoboost". Unlike most Z-moves, it sharply raises all of its stats instead of dealing any damage. (This is made even funnier in that the move required to use it, Last Resort, is a damage-dealing move.)
  • Silk Hiding Steel: Sylveon loves to cling onto its loved ones with its feelers, which it also uses to becalm other Pokémon. Along with its serene, airy appearance and pastel color scheme, you really wouldn't expect this thing to be an absolute tank when it comes to its special stats.
  • Theme Naming:
    • All the evolution names end in -eon. In fact, Eevee's original English name was even going to be Eon.
    • Meanwhile, each generational set of Eeveelutions' Japanese names have the same ending — "-er(s)" in Generation I, "-ie/y" in Generation II, and "-ia" in Generations IV and VI.
  • Tron Lines: Umbreon's yellow marking glow. It's especially evident in the Stadium series.
  • Uncatty Resemblance: According to Ultra Moon's Pokémon entry for Eevee, because of how its form is influenced by its surroundings, "Even its face starts to look like that of its Trainer."
  • Uniqueness Decay:
    • In the earliest games, Eevee was a coveted Pokémon, as you could only receive one per play through of a given game. In Gen II, it was still rare, but you can now breed them. Gen IV allowed you to find wild Eevee under specific circumstances, and in Gen VI, even this restriction was removed and you can encounter them like any wild Pokémon.
    • In Gen I, it was the only Pokémon with a branching evolutionary family. Later generations took away this distinction, but it still has the most branches by far.
    • Umbreon in particular suffered from this. In its debut generation, it had the coveted Dark-type, and was an excellent tank, but as time has gone on, its poor offenses and the introduction of more Dark-types has led to Umbreon becoming eclipsed by other Dark-types.
  • Unstable Genetic Code: Which led to it having many evolutions.
  • Useless Useful Spell:
    • Through breeding, Umbreon can use Synchronoise. Synchronoise only inflicts damage on Pokémon of the same type. Synchronoise is also a Psychic-type move, which Dark-types are immune to. It's not impossible to do that, though.
    • Due to all eight of them sharing the same pre-evolution, some of Eevee's egg moves do not translate well between the Eeveelutions. For instance, Curse would work very well with Umbreon, but is completely useless for Espeon and Jolteon.
    • Sylveon's normal ability (Cute Charm, which infatuates an opposite-sex opponent that used a contact attack) is very situational due to requiring the opponent to be the opposite gender and hit Sylveon with a contact move. Even then, it only activates 30% of the time and Sylveon's bulk on the physical side (almost all contact moves are Physical attacks) is pretty average, so it can't try to fish for the effect without the risk of getting KO'd — and if it does get KO'd, any infatuation it has inflicted automatically ends (which also means that the attack which KOs Sylveon can't trigger Cute Charmnote ).
    • During Gen II, Espeon was the only Pokémon capable of learning Morning Sun. Aside from Espeon being a bit too squishy to be able to effectively use the move, Morning Sun originally depended on both time and weather to calculate how much health it restored. The problem is that, outside of harsh sunlight (which Espeon can't really abuse), it worked best when used in the morningnote , restoring a paltry 1/4 total HP under other circumstances. Not only did its counterparts have longer windows of time during which they were useful (Synthesis had eight hours and Moonlight had ten, compared to Morning Sun's seven), Morning Sun's active hours mostly took place at times when most people were still asleep. Later generations distributed the move to Mons more capable of using it than Espeon and also made it purely dependent on the current weather.
  • Weather of War: Both Glaceon and Leafeon's abilities are heavily associated with weather, Hail and Sun respectively.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: Eeveelutions generally have barren movepools, but they have just enough to be effective. Flareon in particular was hit hard by this, lacking any real good Fire-Type moves to make use of its sky-high Attack. It finally received the long-coveted Flare Blitz in Gen 6, and it was what it needed to become effective.
  • Youkai: Espeon is based on a nekomata.

Winter Form Sawsbuck

Unlike the regions of games past, Unova experiences seasons, each one lasting a month in-game. This Pokémon changes its appearance depending on which season it is currently. As a Deerling, its scent changes and its coat changes color. As a Sawsbuck, its antlers grow and shed leaves much like a deciduous tree. Its signature move is Horn Leech, which works like Giga Drain except it works off its physical attack.


  • Animal Gender-Bender: Male and female Sawsbuck share the same model, despite (With some exceptions) only male deer having antlers in real life.
  • Bambification: Deerling looks so much like the Disney character Bambi, it's unbelievable. Sawsbuck, on the other hand, looks more or less like a deer would in real life.
  • Fragile Speedster: Even moreso in the sun if it has the Chlorophyll ability.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Sawsbuck. (Summer/Autumn/Winter/Spring)
  • Glass Cannon: Sawsbuck has great Attack, but mediocre defenses
  • Green Thumb: Grass-type, but Deerling isn't as good due to its lack of usable Grass-type moves until it evolves into Sawsbuck.
  • The Marvelous Deer: Sawsbuck is rather impressive-looking whatever the season.
  • Non-Elemental: One of the few with a second type that isn't Flying.
  • Palette Swap: Deerling's seasonal forms are color coded.
    • Spring Form has a Pink color in reference to the Cherry Blossoms that symbolize Spring in Japan.
    • Summer Form is Green due to the plants having the most sunlight to thrive.
    • Autumn Form's orange coloration refers to the color of the falling leaves.
    • Winter Form is a dirt brown as all the leaves fall off and leave only the bark and dirt.
  • Planimal: Their antlers change with the seasons like a tree's branches.
  • Powerup Letdown: Gets Serene Grace as its Hidden Ability, which doubles the likelihood of any attack's secondary effect. Unfortunately, Sawsbuck only has five moves that apply the bonus: The first being a widely distributed but lackluster move (Rock Smash), the 2nd being a relatively inaccurate move that executes in two turns (Bounce), the remaining three (Shadow Ball, Energy Ball, Snore) being moves utilizing its awful Special Attack, not to mention the last one cannot be learned in Pokémon X and Y and is weaker than Tackle.
    • Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have somewhat rectified this as it now gains access to Headbuttnote  via breeding.
  • Pretty in Mink: Winter Forme Sawsbuck looks like it's wearing a fur coat with white trim.
  • Seasonal Baggage: Changes looks depending on the season. They don't actually change until you load the game with them in your party.
  • Secret Art: Horn Leech, until Generation VI.
  • Stealth Pun: A fawn with a flower, influenced by the season? Hey, it's Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather.

Draft for Characters.I Dream Of Mimi (The anime really needs a characters page)

    open/close all folders 

Main characters

    Akira Takaoka 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akiratakaokaplus.jpg

Voiced by: Yuusei Oda (Japanese), Oliver Wyman (English)

"I want to explore the world. […] Yeah! I'm going to access information from all over the world on the internet!"

The main protagonist of the series. Akira Takaoka is a nerd who goes to college and wants to buy a computer, but they sell out. He eventually buys a box from a shady man in the streets, but in it, he finds more than he could have expected…


  • Adorkable: Not only is he a huge nerd, but he also makes some great facial expressions and ends up in many humorous situations.
  • Bad Liar: He has to make plenty of lies to hide who Mimi really is, and let's just say he's not great at it.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He often comes off as harsh and he was very opposed to Mimi at first, but he warms up to her eventually.

    Mimi Takaoka 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mimitakaokaplus.jpg

Voiced by: Tomoko Ishimura (Japanese), Debora Rabbai (English)

"Thank you very much for purchasing this fine product. […] I am NBC personal computer 2198AX."

A gynoid Akira found in a box. Mimi Takaoka is always willing to follow his commands, though she always gets furious when she thinks he's paying more attention to Shimada rather than her and she requires his "active molecules" to refresh her memory.


  • Badass Adorable: Don't let her cute looks and sweet voice deceive you, she's a very strong combat robot that can use powerful beam attacks.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She really doesn't want Akira to get close to other women, especially Shimada.
  • Dude Magnet: Pretty much every boy at Akira's school is interested in her.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Even the girls at Akira's school fawn over Mimi, who is posing as his distant cousin from Colombia. They're totally unaware that she's a robot.
  • Godiva Hair: Her hair is pretty much the only thing that covers her breasts often.
  • Ms. Fanservice: A redhead with a pretty face who not only gets a lot of naked scenes, she also has a very fanservicey transformation into her battle armor, which is skimpy itself. The manga also has many fanservice covers with her, and in Volume 2, she wears an outfit very similar to Chun-Li's, who's a Ms. Fanservice in her own franchise.
  • Naked First Impression: Akira first sees her naked after opening the box.
  • Nice Girl: She's loyal to Akira, very willing to greet his friends, and overall comes off as very kind. Her only real flaw is how she's jealous of Akira, but she's still the friendliest out of all the gynoids.
  • Sexbot: She was designed as one, due to a manufacturing oversight. She also constantly needs Akira's semen to refresh her physical memory.
  • She's Got Legs: Her legs are quite long, and episode 1 really shows them off with her skirt.
  • Undying Loyalty: She will be loyal to Akira for the rest of her life ever since he put a protection ring on her finger.

Humans

    Junpei Kuraka 
Voiced by: Nobutoshi Canna (Japanese)

"This is a new kind of virus, a worm! Instead of eating dirt, it eats data! See?"

    Sakaguchi Futoshi 

  • Fat Comic Relief: He has some humorous moments and a rather comical accent, plus he's easily the fattest character in the series.

    Shimada Kanako 
"Are you talking about computers again? How come you aren't bored yet?"

A girl who hangs out with Akira, Junpei and Futoshi. Captain of the tennis club. She's jealous of the attention Mimi gets and isn't very skilled with computers.


  • Adaptational Dye Job: Her hair was blond in the manga and brown in the anime.
  • Spanner in the Works: It's thanks to her Akira and Mimi are victorious in Episode 3, because of the virus she unwittingly put in the computer.
  • Token Wholesome: In the anime, she fulfills this role, having no fanservice moments whatsoever. Averted in the manga, where she gets some fanservice in Access 5.
