VS Cassandra is a Friday Night Funkin' mod created by RamenNoodiles, MagnusStrom, and TheFlipMan using the Project FNF Engine. After the events of Pico's past revolving around the school, the evil rival to Pico strikes back again from the dead years later with a brand new look! Instead, she's going after our favorite blue-haired rapper for dating her sister, Girlfriend. Apparently, Cassandra had some past beef with her and tries to convince Boyfriend that she's no good to date. Will you defeat her and save your Girlfriend? Or will you understand the perspective of the red-headed goth? It includes three songs, Berzerker, Possession and Takeover.
There's a lot hidden under the surface, With the creator, Ramen Noodiles, posting videos about the lore, The playlist for that, and the mod's songs, can be found here. There's also plans for a week 2, with Cassandra rap battling against Pico.
The mod can be downloaded on GameBanana here.
- Upcoming Song
This mod provides examples of:
- Adaptation Species Change: Has gone from a Penillian (or a human turned Penillian in A Pico Thing), to a demon of the Dearest Family Manipulated or possessed in someway by a Penillian. Even her "Penillian" form has been changed, going from a giant Hermaphrodite with a Gag Penis to a roach-based Insectoid Aliens who is actually just a demon controlled by an actual Penillian. It's confirmed in a stream, however, that her DNA was changed with alien DNA, ala A Pico Thing.
- Adaptational Sympathy: Cassandra seems to be genuinely regretful of her actions in Pico's School, and seemed to be controlled in some way by a Penillian rather then being one.
- Alien Among Us: Subverted, as Cassandra is a demon due to being Girlfriend's sister rather than a Penillian. Though one is controlling her in some way.
- Alternate Universe: Due to Cassandra's backstory, in this case being part of the Dearest family, being thought of before recent confirmations by Tom Fulp, primarily Love Conquers All, it counts as this trope. Which is confirmed in a recent youtube post.
- Back from the Dead: Stated as such on the mod description.
- Berserk Button: Girlfriend is this to Cassandra, and what initializes the conflict this week.
- Big Creepy-Crawlies: Her Alien form is a drider-like roach monster.
- Cain and Abel: Cassandra is the Cain to Girlfriends Abel, having grown a hatred for her due to her getting more attention from their parents.
- Contralto of Danger: During "Possession", Cassandra sings in a very low voice.
- Creepy Cockroach: Her Alien form is a drider-like roach monster. The Creator, RamenNoodiles, even calls this form Roachy.
- Demonic Possession: Done to a demon, ironically enough, by a Penillian, hinted at the names of the songs Possession and Takeover.
- Fake Boobs: Girlfriend stuffs her bra, according to Cassandra in the lead-up to Possession.
- Hidden Depths: There's a lot more to this former school shooter than one might think.
- Insectoid Aliens: Invoked, at least, by her Alien form.
- Morphic Resonance: Her Alien form moreso then then her game of origin, as her humanoid upper body is more feminine in outline and keeps the inverted crosses.
- My Sister Is Off-Limits!: An interesting variation, as unlike her parents who are trying to protect her sister from Boyfriend, Cassandra's trying to protect Boyfriend from her sister.
- "Not So Different" Remark: Boyfreind tells Cassandra that she's not alone in regards to being The Unfavorite, as he too knows what it's like to be distant from a sibling and being forced to keep higher expectations in the family.
- Parental Favoritism: Her parents cared more about Cassandra's sister, Girlfriend, than Cassandra herself.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Cassandra fills the red oni role to Boyfriend's blue oni, moreso than Whitty, as Cassandra has a red and black color scheme and starts the conflict rather than Boyfriend.
- Related in the Adaptation: Neither Cassandra nor Girlfriend are stated to have any siblings in their respective canons. Here, they are (half-)sisters.
- A school bell can be heard ringing in the background of Berzerker, in a reference to Pico's School, the game Cassandra originates from.
- In the revised dialogue before "Takeover", Boyfriend mentioned that among the people he had already dealt with were "a bomb, a toaster, a skeleton horse man", and "some fucks that look like ice cream cones".
- Spared by the Adaptation: Cassandra, of course. It's indicated this mod is operating on base Pico's School, and thus the school shooting went through. She was able to survive since pico actually killed off the Penillian, but her comrades weren't so lucky.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Downplayed, but her alien form has similar eyes to her parents, just being yellow rather then red, and has red hair like her mother and sister, though a brighter shade of red.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Cassandra is the aggressive tomboy who dressed in punkish fashion and had short spiky hair Contrast to her sister, Girlfriend, who is a sweet Girly Girl dressed in feminine dress and heels and had long wavy hair.
- Wham Line: In the cutscene leading up to Berzerker:Boyfriend: Ski beep bop.Cassandra: You're here with your girlfriend? Cool...Cassandra: Wait a second...Boyfriend: ...Beep?Cassandra: Sis?
