Wham Line / Atop the Fourth Wall

Go To

Do not hide spoilers here; Wham Line is by its very nature a spoileriffic trope, so hiding spoilers here would be repetitive.

  • "He's coming for you, Linkara..." At that point, it's apparent that Mechakara wasn't just an elaborate Shout-Out to The Terminator.
  • Dr. Linksano got a rather good one at the end of the first Tandy Computer Whiz Kids review:
    "There are forces in The Multiverse far beyond anything you've ever dealt with. Ancient, mindless evils that fill in the cracks and eat dimensions just for a snack. Monstrous deities and empires spanning Universe after Universe have risen and fallen in the span of forever! But there is still one individual, one being that they are all horrified of! When I saw him coming near my universe, I fled. Muhahahhahahha. Weep for your Universe, Linkara! Weep for all Universes! For Lord Vyce is coming! Hihihi. And all that he sees, he conquers! HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!"
