"Fanfiction: the final frontier. These are the exploits of the web series Bad Fanfiction Corner, her thirty year mission to seek out ridiculous fanfiction, to build new criticisms, to make fun of everyone in the universe; to boldy go and do what no webshow should ever do again."
— Intro Narration, Star Trek X Part 1

A webshow by Reputable Dubbing Pictures built around reading and riffing on bad fanfics, often centered around the Sonic the Hedgehog universe (as it is read by mostly members of the Sonic Paradox community).

You can find it here.


Tropes:

  • 10-Second Retirement: Having already been reading for a while before recording, Smegerama's voice gives out in the first episode of "Sonic.EXE", at which point Silentlyvocal takes over narrating for a while.
  • All Just a Dream: Silentlyvocal's alernate ending to "Light's Lost Memorys"...to an extent.
  • Author Appeal: Light's conveniently flexible powers in "Light's Lost Memorys".
  • Bad "Bad Acting": Occasionally, the crew will change a character's voice if it doesn't work.
    • Especially Silentlyvocal's attempted impression of Stimpy.
  • Berserk Button: In "Sonic.EXE"
    Smegerama (in response to the narrator not having seen his friend in two weeks): For two, WHOLE, WEEKS...oh, well that's terrible I guess. I already hate this person.

  • Being Watched: Eggman Nega in "Light's Lost Memorys".
    Silentlyvocal: Kay, I'm intrigued by this: 'yes, even the bathrooms!'. I created the toilets to watch your butt while I was examining you, so I could best learn how to make you have diarrhea!"
    Smegerama (as Eggman Nega): I can see your bum!
  • Big Brother Is Watching: In the end of "Sonic.EXE"
    Silentlyvocal (in an over the top sonic voice): Try to keep this interesting for me, Tom.
  • Black Comedy: The narrator of "Sonic.EXE" possibly being crazy, and strangling his mother to death after she tells him to be quiet.
  • Call-Back: Often to certain running jokes established in previous episodes.
    "Bleeding black and red eyes."
  • Call-Forward: Sometimes to stories the crew read in the past and are planning to revisit as episodes.
  • Cluster Bleep-Bomb: Came close with Silentlyvocal's mockery of Knuckles in "Sonic.EXE"
    Silentlyvocal: Sh*t's f*cking crazy dude.
  • Advertisement:
  • Continuity Nod: "That horrible Kefka laugh" is mentioned in every episode.
  • Crossover: Star Trek X, a Sonic/Star Trek crossover.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Happens, as noted by the crew, hilariously early for the narrator of "Sonic.EXE"
  • Dull Surprise: Several times in "Sonic.EXE"
    Silentlyvocal: WHAT WAS GOING ON?!
    Smegerama: I don't know, why don't you tell me?
  • Eldritch Abomination: Silentlyvocal's picture of Light at the beginning of "Light's Lost Memorys". Dear God, what IS THAT?
  • Family-Unfriendly Violence: "Sonic.EXE". And how!
  • Fan Nickname: A reference to Mystery Science Theater 3000 in "Light's Lost Memorys".
    Smegerama: Joe Don Baker is Micha! (cue clip of Crow saying "Joe Don Baker is Mittens")
  • Fast-Forward Gag: Silentlyvocal's incredibly quick read through a section of "Light's Lost Memorys" that he had accidentally skipped to earlier might count as this.
  • Forced Meme: "For like [X] HOURS/DAYS/WEEKS/MONTHS/YEARS/etc." due to Sonic.EXE's habit of repeatedly describing events as lasting unreasonable periods of time.
  • Foreshadowing: In "Sonic.EXE"
    Smegerama: I'm going to guess he gets sucked into the game.
  • Gag Censor: More like, "When Smegerama remembers to do it".
  • Genre Shift: When a serious discussion is started. This doesn't usually last very long.
  • Heroic BSoD: Light's reaction to finding out his friends are actually robots in "Light's Lost Memorys".
    Silentlyvocal: I still don't believe you! (snickering)
  • Hidden Depths: When somebody accidentally does a good impression/voice.
  • I Am the Noun: "I AM GOD."
  • Left Hanging: When somebody attempts to make a joke, only to be unheard.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: As pointed out in "Light's Lost Memorys".
    Silentlyvocal: Where did YOU come from?
  • Man of a Thousand Voices: Smegerama, to some extent.
  • Mood Dissonance: Sonic.EXE's choice of visuals and occasionally vocabulary.
    Silentlyvocal: Of all the words you could have used, you used "wacky".
    • If the story is to be believed, the Kefka laugh is literally the most horrifying thing that has ever existed.
  • Moral Dissonance: As pointed out, Sonic's murderous personality in "Sonic.EXE"
    Silentlyvocal: You realize how IMPOSSIBLE this is.
  • No Pronunciation Guide: Most of the OC's.
  • The Power of Friendship: Smegerama's alternate ending to "Light's Lost Memorys" is based pretty heavily on this.
  • Running Gag: Several from "Sonic.EXE" are featured in nearly every installment.
    "Bleeding black and red eyes."
    "For like [X] hours/days/weeks/years/etc."
    • "That horrible Kefka laugh" is especially common.
  • Sanity Slippage: Oh, Smegerama.
    Smegerama (deadpan): I want to murder the person who wrote this.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Used occasionally for comedic effect, never lasts long though.
  • Seinfeldian Conversation: Often when berating flaws of the story at hand, or just random side topics that are thrown into the mix.
  • Series Hiatus: The series was first announced as a way to put out regular content while their main project, "Sonic The Other Movie", is being produced.
  • Smash Cut: Some of the episode endings.
  • Smoking Hot Sex: Mentioned by Silentlyvocal when discussing stereotypical "OC x Canon Character" pairs commonly found in fanfiction.
  • Something Completely Different: In "Sonic.EXE"
    Silentlyvocal: So I took a break!
    • The obviously exaggerated alternate endings at the end of "Light's Lost Memorys"
  • Space Is an Ocean: Lampshaded mercilessly in Star Trek X Part 1.
  • Theme Tune: Both Star Trek X and Suicidemouse.avi have their own theme songs.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: Just looking at the title "Light's Lost Memorys" pretty much clues you in on what they're in for.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: In "Sonic.EXE"
    Silentlyvocal (as Sonic): You're in my world, bitch!
  • Twist Ending: Technically "Light's Lost Memorys" despite the actual story never being finished.
  • Violence Is the Only Option: In the announcement video, when a security guard finds Silentlyvocal in the Janitor's closet and proceeds to tazer and beat him.
  • Violation of Common Sense: Somewhat subverted in the case of "Sonic.EXE" seeing as the narrator does all in his power, only to get into a worse situation or, as the crew points out, overreact and go into a schizophrenic fit.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Kyle in "Sonic.EXE"
  • Weapon of Choice: As pointed out, Light's tendency to rely on his "powers" for just about every conceivable task he is faced with.
