"Look, doc. You can turn things around! You're the chosen one!"

The Matwix is a webtoon from Looney Tunes that stars Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd and is a spoof of The Matrix, which came out two years before the cartoon. It is notably the only webtoon from 2001 to 2003 to never get a DVD release.

Contains examples of:

  • Alice Allusion: "You want answers? Just follow the rabbit."
  • Bullet Time: Hilariously lampshaded by Bugs Bunny.
  • The Chosen One: Bugs constantly referred to Elmer as this.
  • Crapsack World: The world is shown to be ruled by technology and Salesmen that force people to buy every discounted product.
  • Downer Ending: A hilarious example. Elmer gives his credit card to the Top Salesman, making mankind lose.
  • Follow the White Rabbit: A literal example. Elmer is relying on Bugs Bunny.
  • Or Was It a Dream?: The ending after Elmer wakes up in a pod facility.
  • Red Pill, Blue Pill: In this case, Red Donut and Blue Donut. If Elmer ate the red, he will see the reality. If he ate the blue, he will see something else.
