List of unheroic protagonist actions

From CWCki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A recurring tragicomic element of Sonichu is how Chris tries to characterize the protagonists of his comic as badass, insightful, and heroic yet instead unfailingly depicts his heroes as immature, maladroit, and at times nigh on morally bankrupt. Over time, the characters have engaged in enough unintentional buffoonery and villainy to easily fill an entire list of unheroic protagonist actions. While any protagonist worth reading about will have some flaws, from Donald Duck's temper to Sonic the Hedgehog's hyperactivity, the number of vices the Sonichu characters possess are too numerable to shrug them off as portrayals of flawed but ultimately heroic characters, but rather show them as obliviously yet undeniably evil.

Recurring Shenanigans

This is neither the first nor the last time Chris further abuses a defeated opponent.
  • The Pokémon in this series often are at least as intelligent as human beings, yet various humans tote and order them around as personal servants. This was a problem with the original series as well, but Chris doesn't even attempt to address this issue in his comic. This creates stupidity like the comic finding nothing wrong with Trainer Kel pimping out her Dragonite to slake Rosechu's lust while simultaneously finding it unremarkable that human children can date Pokémon.
  • The protagonists are completely submissive to their raging libidos. The characters are extremely quick to hop in the sack with whoever strikes their fancy, often having known their partners for mere days or even hours beforehand. Aside from showing a lack of self-control, their hypersexuality has directly led the protagonists into danger. They tend to become uncontrollably aroused at the drop of a hat, even in the middle of an invasion of their precious city or confronting their adversaries. Needless to say, it's all very telling of the author's own twisted views on sex and relationships.
  • The characters are overly vindictive when they have any sort of advantage over their foes. Mutilation, sexual assault, and of course mass murder are always on the table no matter how mildly they were originally antagonised. This is in marked contrast to the basic morality of any non-ironic hero, where instigating or escalating a fight or seeking any revenge past what's necessary to stop a villain from committing crimes is a huge no-no.
  • The heroes show absolutely no aptitude for any fighting strategy that's not 'run up to the bad guy and use superpowers until they stop'. They're unable to anticipate special techniques or strategies from their foes, have trouble doing basic coordination of attacks (unless it's to gang up on Black Sonichu), and can't perform any combat feats not constrained in the paradigm of plot-device items or the narrow application of Pokémon moves.
  • CWCVille's "government" is a nightmarish monstrosity of human rights violations and poor resource allocation that, unsurprisingly, fails to provide basic safety for its citizens. By far the most popular stock parody of Chris's work is to depict the city as a Kafkaesque dystopia that only exists to fulfill the puerile whims of its dictator-for-life mayor. What's more, this only requires a slight exaggeration of CWCVille's unsavory traits. None of the heroes, of course, have a problem with how CWCville is run, and in fact are shown to be the mayor's cronies, with complete immunity from the law, and receive free houses, credit cards and other gifts from the mayor, not unlike Soviet nomenklatura.
  • Fight scenes involving the main characters often have them beating up jerkops, innocent, mentally handicapped people who've been brainwashed into becoming Mary Lee Walsh's evil minions. It's not until Sonichu #9 that anybody even tries to cure them of their brainwashing. Even then, it's explicitly mentioned that the "heroes" have killed several jerkops, knowing full well they are victims rather than villains.

Sonichu #0

Episode #1: Sonichu's Origin

  • Sonic just sort of disappears after crashing into Pikachu, and takes the credit for Sonichu's fight against the Perfect Chaos Monster. Sonichu isn't bothered by this and even names himself after the guy who ran him over and immediately abdicated an important battle.

Episode #2: Sonichu in 'Genesis of the Lovehogs'

  • Sonichu stalks Rosechu to her home and spies on her through the window rather than introducing himself to her like a normal person.
  • Kel straight-up pimps out her Pokémon to each other. To be fair, this happens in the video games, but it's rather jarring to see outside of a game mechanics context.

Episode #3: Sonichu vs. Naitsirhc

  • Giovanni's son Naitsirhc is shown to have at least two Legendary Pokémon (Zapdos and Raikou) and sports even more in the team Chris describes him having. Combined with how no trainers from the video games or the anime appear in the series, this places Sonichu in a grimdark world where Team Rocket was victorious over Ash and friends, whose bodies are presumably decaying in shallow graves somewhere outside Saffron City. That, or for whatever reason, the heroes are simply not doing anything to stop Team Rocket from holding power over the world, which while less grim, is no less questionable from an ethical standpoint.

Classic Sonichu Strips

  • Rosechu, a protagonist, is shown as a vampire, an undead monster that sustains its existence by draining the blood of others.
  • When the comic was originally written, no reason was given in the fiction for Chris and Sonichu to attack Mary Lee Walsh. She is not depicted as doing anything more evil than merely existing and saying "Hee Hee" and "Want a girlfriend? Tough lightning!"
  • No reason is given as to why Chris and Sonichu only get one shot at defeating Mary Lee Walsh. If they had missed, would they simply have left Mary to do whatever presumably evil thing she was doing?
  • Rosechu does nothing but look on and say "Oh no!" while Chris is being beaten by Mary Lee Walsh's mecha-Jerkops, despite supposedly having equal power to Sonichu.

Sonichu #1

Episode #4: Black Sonichu in Darkness, Speed, & Lightning!

  • Did Giovanni snip off Black Sonichu's balls like a naughty poodle after he mildly sassed his son? Chris-chan sets up a potentially interesting plot twist -- a clone pretends fealty to their evil creators only to bide his time and betray them -- but then takes his sweet time resolving this subplot while Blachu sublimates his role as the villains' bitch. If Black Sonichu realized that he was forcefed a pack of bullshit and propaganda, why did he cheerfully go along with his handlers for so long before joining the forces of "good"?

Episode #5: Sonichu in Informal Meeting

  • A map of the area on page twelve shows that Sonic lives fairly close to Giovanni's undisguised headquarters. Why Sonic remained oblivious of and/or ignored the existence of Pokémon's biggest villain for so long is an exercise left to the reader.

Episode #6: Sonic and Sonichu in Black Metal Combat

  • This issue is the first to show Chris's curious habit of having a character with explicitly better superpowers than their opponent or ally being totally outclassed, i.e. Sonichu's dismal performance versus Sonic the Hedgehog's unstoppable rampage, Bionic contemptuously dispatching Reldnahc, Wes-Li effortlessly beating up Chris-chan, etc. While this is a common theme in fiction to show that you can't always brute force your way through problems and that cunning, strategy, and determination can triumph over raw power, this dissonance seems to happen in Sonichu simply for the sake of making the antagonists look a bit less impotent than they really are. Due to Chris's predictable and boring style of writing, the villains are almost invariably defeated and subsequently cast aside when they and the protagonists next meet.
  • Sonic, a seasoned superhero, not only lets the much more inexperienced Sonichu go in ahead of him but does so even after suspecting that they're walking into a trap. Letting Sonichu take point and even springing the aforementioned trap without so much as a warning was pretty weaselly on Sonic's part.
  • After a long and arduous battle complete with SONIC SPEED and ZAPPING TO THE EXTREME, Sonichu, Sonic, and Rosechu finally have two globally infamous criminals cornered. And... the comic just forgets about them in lieu of a shopping spree at the CWCville Shopping Center.

Sonichu #2

Episode #7: Sonichu in Anchuent Prophecy

  • Wes and Sarah get personal training in how to use their hedgehog powers from the spirits of their ancestors; Chris isn't so lucky. The Ancient leader of the Cherokee Clan is more than happy to leave Chris to fend for himself. To his credit, Sonichu does at least help Chris get elementary training. Nonetheless, the clan leader's selective neglect of his disciple leaves Chris unaware of at least two superpowers that would've made things a lot easier on Chris. Not that he needs more deus ex machinas in his corner, but still.

Episode #8: Christian Chandler in Chaos & Serenity

  • Sonichu disappears for a large portion of the battle between Wes and Chris-Chan for no good reason. Considering that Wes was trying to kill Sonichu's "father", his help would've been much appreciated.
  • After Wes goes on for some time about why he's behaving evilly, Chris goes on a self-aggrandizing rant and tries to paint himself as an innocent victim in the love triangle, rather than trying to negotiate with Wes or calm him down. Chris clearly is more concerned about his own ego than getting his and Wes's shit together to fulfill the Anchuent Prophecy.
  • Sarah, despite being told that her role in the upcoming events was to be a peacemaker between the other two humans-turned-hedgehog, decides not to intervene until her partners almost kill each other.
  • Chris gets his ass kicked in less than a page by Wes in spite of having more and better superpowers than his rival.

Episode #9: Chris-Chan, Saramah, & Wes-Li in The Evil that Stomped CWCville

  • Sarah very stupidly decides to dump Wes Iseli right before the prophesied evil takes place, causing Wes's heart level to collapse right before the fated battle with Mary Lee Walsh and Count Graduon. To be fair, you could argue that it wouldn't be right to romantically string someone along just to cajole them into doing the right thing... except that she had no problem inflicting this sneaky tactic on Chris at the end of the issue.

Sonichu #3

Episode #10: Sonichu Babies

  • Punchy unambiguously murders Mypoe.
  • That said, as much as we wish agony and woe on those obnoxious Sonees and Roseys, Punchy's violent reaction to Mypoe mutilating him shortly after his birth is completely understandable. The real question is this: what kind of dojo is Shinabe running here?
  • Unless he has one hell of an explanation for his actions, Mewtwo stole Magi-chan's childhood and sculpted him into the borderline-autistic he is today for his own reasons. Not that we'll ever know these reasons.

Episode #11: The Chaotic Combo in When Hedgehogs Meet

  • Why is something as powerful and calamitous as the Legendary Master Sunstone just sitting out in the open, guarded solely by a powerless parrot? At the very least it should be placed somewhere hidden. Then again, the Sunstone ceases to become an issue after this comic so maybe the mayor did something smart for once and squirreled it someplace more secure.
  • Speaking of Flame the Sunbird, he's only able to fly for about 20 miles (the distance between the shores to where Bubbles is) before being winded. For a bird, especially one that's a self-styled guardian, this is a pathetic level of physical fitness.
  • Every single member of the Chaotic Combo pile on Black Sonichu at the end and just beat him to a bloody pulp. While he overpowered them one on one, Black Sonichu getting dogpiled by half a dozen mutants and left bleeding and disfigured doesn't exactly suggest an even fight between a team of heroes and a powerful villain. Besides, Black Sonichu didn't even mean to aggravate them.

Sonichu #4

Sonichu #5

Episode #12: Christian Chandler in My Best Friend's Cherokian Wedding

  • Chris is invisibly spying on the wedding. Meaning that he wasn't invited and decided to just show up anyway or that he was but just likes creeping around for no reason.
  • What exactly was stopping Chris from deploying another Trap Card, or at the very least, warning the crowd when he realized that his reasoning wasn't getting through? Innocent bystanders might have gotten hurt or even killed.
  • With all of the craziness that happens in CWCVille, Sarah Spicer was careless to not have her lightning bracelets at arms length whether or not they clashed with her wedding gown. Chris evidently believes women care more about matching their outfits than about protecting the people they love. Also, why couldn't she just get a gown that didn't clash?
  • Boy, those Yu-Gi-Oh! cards sure came in handy this chapter and previously in episode #8. All of those versatile, powerful, yet easily-deployable effects should make protecting CWCVille and saving innocents a breeze! Too bad Chris lost interest in the franchise after this issue, so they'll never be seen or even mentioned again.

Episode #13: Smashed Hearts & Entrapment

Sonichu #6

Episode #12.5: One Lucky Dog

  • Chris resurrects his pet dog. In-story she merely turned from a dog into a magical talking dog, but Chris doesn't hide what he's really doing. Regardless of how many people die in the comic's pages--from innocent bystanders, to victims of circumstance, to real-life gal pals--CWC has only extended this mercy once more.
  • With the introduction of Allison Amber, it becomes obvious that even in his fantasy world, Chris is too lazy to do any of his mayoral duties that won't help him look cool or punish his enemies. What's more, an unelected city employee way down the chain of command has been promoted to Vice Mayor, although we were led to believe she was just an overpowered secretary for a long time. Allison performs almost literally all of Chris's mayoral duties, which is highly illegal because she doesn't have the relevant authority.

Episode #14: Evil is Afoot!

  • Allowing his defeated enemy mercy and attentive medical treatment is probably the most uncharacteristically nice thing Chris does in this comic. Unfortunately, the magnanimity of this gesture is ruined by the fact that there's absolutely no security in Reldnahc's room during his convalescence, leaving Chris's arch-nemesis free to just walk out of the hospital.

Sonichu #7

Episode #15: Sonichu, Magi-Chan, and Christian in Time for a Ball

  • Bionic (Chris's first bastard child) makes the highly progressive assumption that women always put out after the third date.
  • Chris and Magi-Chan introduce a convenient plot device to help them solve their seemingly nonexistent problems. The question here is that if they knew about them this whole time, why wait until now to 'search' for them? Chris could have easily used them in the past to stop villains in the past, yet decided to postpone it to the point where it would cost countless lives.

Episode #16: C.W.C. and Sonichu in Time Hogs

  • Sonichu and Magi-Chan are too busy discussing sex to realize that Chris has been flung out of the time sphere, giving no thought to helping him. Magi-Chan should have been able to sense it telepathically or whatever.

Sonichu #8

What does your existentialist philosophy say about FURRY FACE RAPE, Jason?

Episode #17: Rage against the Garbage

  • Rosechu is so ignorant about how the Internet and trolling works that she thinks that taking nudes of herself is going to overwhelm the flow of shemale pictures. Amusingly, this is one of the few instances where a protagonist is immediately broken of their delusions.
  • Sonichu, Wild, and Rosechu plot burglary without even trying to negotiate for the Sonichu Balls. As far as we know, Jason is the rightful owner and Sonichu's crew are a bunch of thieves.
  • Wild's family is harassed by arsonists and his father is kidnapped by poachers but the putative Mayor clearly can't be bothered to stop stuffing his face with chicken nuggets long enough to take care of the problem.
  • For that matter, Wild couldn't even be assed to look for his own damn father himself. Even if he was still too weak to mount a solo rescue, at this point in the comic he knows at least ten other characters with powers similar or superior to his own and has no excuse for not resuming his quest. Then again, Wild probably knew that his 'friends' were too self-absorbed to give a shit about anyone else anyway. Hell, Sonichu and Rosechu couldn't be bothered to do anything more than go 'oh, that sucks' at Wild's tearjerker.
  • Sonichu, Rosechu, and Wild very stupidly schedule the latter's infiltration at the same time as their meeting with the owner of 4-cent garbage. Jason knows that they will be here, so why would they undertake this dangerous and important mission when he's on alert? Then again, Wild doesn't meet any resistance more stringent than a locked safe so it doesn't matter anyway.
  • On several floors, Sonichu, Rosechu, and even Chris physically attack people whose only crime is uploading pictures to the Internet.
  • Jason Kendrick Howell flat-out admits that he owns an underage sex slave that he does illegal things with. Sonichu and Rosechu can't even give the tiniest of shits about this grievous affront to human dignity. They're only concerned about Rosechu being drawn with a penis.
  • After Jason taunts Sonichu and Rosechu, both attack him and in the latter's case attempts to rape/kill him. Jason only survives thanks to dark forces keeping him alive.
  • The 19th Amendment, securing the right of women to vote, apparently doesn't apply to CWCVille. You know, a city supposedly existing within the borders of the United States.
  • Rosechu thinks that laws preventing a 14-year old from being able to assist in nude protests are "dumb".

Episode #18: Spring Break 2008

  • The protagonists are overly quick to forgive Blake. Granted, being a Saturday morning cartoon villain, his villainy hasn't exceeded 'kidnap Rosechu and get his her teeth knocked out' -- a far cry from the mass murders the heroes cause in Sonichu 10 to be sure. Nonetheless, it's still dumb for the other protagonists to implicitly trust someone who was only a few months ago working for two of the biggest criminals on the planet.
  • Bubbles is astonishingly stupid and careless when dealing with Silvana-Blake. Despite getting two credible warnings from Magi-Chan and Jiggliami/Blake that she was about to fuck an impostor, she's still not convinced.
  • Blake has more of an excuse than Bubbles than his actions, but wasn't he the tiniest bit suspicious that Bubbles aborted her mission in order to have nasty furry jungle sex?

Sonichu #9

Episode #19: Date Ed (Even Though the Idea Sounds Dated)

  • This is not the heroes' fault, but the Dating Education class is mind-meltingly idiotic. The coursework is piss-easy what with fifty-word essays, the IM portion being unsupervised, and an enormous douche like Reginald almost getting a perfect score. If the characters had an ounce of self-respect they would have dropped this worthless class by day two and demanded their money back.
  • Ivy refuses to pair up with anyone because she is holding out for Chris, despite this nominally being just practice. Since the class has equal amounts of boys and girls, this means George Philip, the boy she got paired up with, is being screwed over. Somehow, Ivy still gets a 99% in the class.
  • The heroes apparently have trouble discerning the identities of people with extremely obvious screen names, which doesn't speak well of their intelligence. Gee, I wonder who DigDugette416 could be?
  • Reginald Sneasel is, and let's be frank here, a fulminating asshole. Reginald lets down his IM partner and classmate FlorDora217 because of his Layla obsession, intentionally spreads scurrilous rumors about her, sabotages school equipment, and stalks the two on their date. By contrast, Punchy decides to cooperate with Layla and tries to keep an open mind about her despite also having his eye on someone else, foils Reginald's cunning plan with his counter-gambit of 'have his best buddy ask Layla directly', and acts like a perfect gentleman on his date. How sad is it that you come off as more of a jerk than a sex-crazed, sadomasochistic Knuckles headswap? This wouldn't be so bad if Reginald was set up to be the typical jealous-yet-hapless rival suitor that potboiler romantic comedies thrive upon, but given his fate in this episode and the rest of Sonichu 9, he's clearly meant to be a sympathetic character.
  • Ms. Jackaras just abruptly dies halfway through the narrative and nobody even reacts except her sister, who replaces her instantly for some reason. Her sister mourns for precisely one panel.

Episode #20: CWC-Defense

  • Sonichu gets a glimpse of his wife's panties while she's doing laundry and turns into a drooling pervert. Very classy of you, sweet-bolt.
  • Sonichu goes on an unprompted, uncomfortably long homophobic tirade that makes him look violent and psychopathic, complete with breaking the couple's property.
  • Why hasn't CWCville elected or at least appointed a new interim mayor yet? It's been several months since Chris was trapped in the time void, and there's no reason to think that he'll be back anytime soon, or even at all at this point. Again, the city is forced to dump way too many important decisions on an over-promoted secretary. This gets discussed further in the next section.
  • Prower can transform into a giant robot and was very close-by, yet he failed to help Punchy and Layla when they were surrounded by Jerkops. Punchy was able to take care of himself, but Layla was clearly unused to fighting and almost got her head handed to her.
  • CWCVille's hapless defenders are completely blindsided by the PVCC, sending their heavy-hitters on wild goose chases all around the city while apparently not thinking to leave the CWCville Shopping Center, the seat of the municipal government and the main target of the invasion, with any better defenders than a skanky tween girl and a half-naked zombie dog.
  • When the combined forces of Sonic recolors and Autobot rejects prove to be inadequate for defending the city, Allison Amber doesn't even bother to let the media know, let alone try to get assistance. Bionic and Darkbind for instance, only realize what's going on as the conflict starts spilling out past the city borders.
  • Even if Chris is the one fated to personally stop Graduon and Walsh, there's still no reason for Sonichu to just let her fly away and regroup, especially when he literally had her at arms' length and in a position to easily capture or otherwise finish off.
  • After the battle is over, the Electric Hedgehog Pokémon show basically no concern about the destruction that has befallen their city.

Sonichu #10

Having a little girl torture her grandpa? Totally normal behavior from your heroes!

Episode #21: Christian Chandler in Director Amenities

  • The amount of sheer evil the "protagonists" exhibit in this issue clearly shows their transition from bumbling yet harmless goons to terrifyingly violent and sadistic psychopaths. From rape by deception to genocide, this issue has it all.
  • Chris poisons the planet's water supplies with his "straight" blood, thereby initiating a genocide against homosexuals, bisexuals and asexuals worldwide. Aside from being ethically perverse, this scheme shows an inexcusable ignorance of simple science. Those few crates would barely be enough to infect a modern city's water supply for a few days, let alone worldwide. Transferring a vaccine through the water supply is also ludicrous; not only would the treatment facilities dilute and kill the immunizing vectors, blood-stomach ingestion is one of the weakest ways to transmit a disease.
  • Chris rapes his future self's wife by pretending to be his future self.
  • Chris blows up a building filled with "devil trolls", sealing it up beforehand as well to ensure that none can escape as he does so.
  • Chris (by now you're probably realizing it's almost all Chris) breaks a man's teeth because he parodied him.
  • Chris violently injects his own blood into his nemesis, in some sort of harebrained scheme to turn him straight.
  • Chris then teleports Reldnahc straight into the domicile of Kel without so much as a trial or medical examination, under the excuse that his evil behavior was due to his recent transformation into an evil homosexual hedgehog. Though stripped of his Anchuent Prophecy-granted powers, Reldnahc was already on the side of the bad guys before his transformation. Thus Chris just delivered a world-class Pokémon trainer working for one of the biggest criminal organizations straight into the arms of one of his unsuspecting friends!
  • Chris and the Hedgehog Boys destroy a populated high-rise building, killing and injuring hundreds of innocent people in an act of extreme terrorism, because they drew pictures of his imaginary friends with pee-pees.
  • Chris punches someone in the face hard enough to knock out his teeth, for sardonically referring to him as 'miss'.
  • Chris and Sonichu trespass in Alec Benson's Leary - Alec Benson's... Try saying that three times fast with plurals. Heh. Chris and Sonichu trespass in Alec's house, before Chris destroys all of his computer data and then the computer itself.
  • Chris and Sonichu then plagiarize all of Alec's TRUE and HONEST creations, followed by having them beat the shit out of Alec and accusing him of keeping female prisoners in his basement.
  • Collosal Chan breaks into an old woman's house completely unprovoked, and brutally attacks her to the extent of causing permanent paralysis, before having her stripped of her powers and sent to a maximum security prison with no trial.
  • Collosal Chan also willingly smashes the staff Count Graduon is sealed in and releases him at Mary's request, so she can "punish [Graduon] another day."
  • Magi-chan shows no sympathy for Silvana's literal emasculation. To be fair, Silvana being gender-changed against her will (she refused a previous offer) is an unavoidable side-effect of stopping the mad Count Graduon, but that's no reason for him to be so gleeful about it.
  • Magi-Chan, the inhuman monster he is, informs an infant only minutes old that her mother was murdered by 'Evan'. That's right, even infancy doesn't get you out of your duties as Chris's personal bodyguard.
  • Chris and his corrupted officials have a show trial for four innocent men, before having them sentenced to death, with little to no evidence against them.
  • Chris and his entourage, including a one-week-old girl and a preteen, brutally execute four people in violent and inhumane ways. Remember, this is a comic Chris claims is aimed at children.
  • Chris disrespects a national holiday by being an egotistical jackass.

Sonichu #11

Episode #22: A Sonichu Christmas


  • Cerah makes a big deal about making a special cookie for a Jewish kid named Kevin in an uncomfortably awkward attempt at sensitivity. The cookie, made in the vague shape of a candle, bears no resemblance to any Jewish symbol. The cookie is vanilla-flavored, in case the kid has some kind of food allergy. Rosechu and Cerah do not consider that anyone other than Jews might have food allergies.

Episode #23: Simonchu & Bananafunkle

  • When Simonchu returns to see his sister, he is met with extreme hostility by both Sandy and Wild, with Sandy threatening to use Horn Drill to kill him and Wild even knocking him unconscious on sight. It's only until after Simonla shouts at them do they back down. It should also be made note of that since Simonla never died, neither Wild nor Sandy have any reason to act as violently as they do.
  • After an intense night of fucking, Reginald Sneasel evolves into a Weavile and proceeds to destroy everything in the church. When Angelica wakes and finds him, he says he's too far gone as some sort of monster. Later in the episode, he hooks up with Layla and seems to have full control over his new form. It should be known that Weavile don't become more vicious upon evolving, so that means that Reginald effectively used his evolution as an easy way out after ripping apart Angelica's church and breaking up with her.
  • Simonchu apparently discovers a fossil of an undocumented Pokémon, which has been brought back to life. Said Pokémon also apparently used to be human high school senior and was hit by a car before being brought back as a new Pokémon... somehow. Rather then give it to proper researchers of the field for further study, Simonchu dumps it on Punchy Sonichu because he's apparently the only one who can understand it.
  • Punchy agreeing to bring Bananasauros to his home to live with him wouldn't be all too terrible... if Layla, his girlfriend, wasn't also living with him. And of course, he didn't call ahead to say he was bringing company; let alone some weird banana dinosaur.
  • While Bananasauros is effectively an animal who has little control over the situation, he is fully aware that him being there is straining Punchy and Layla's relationship. He doesn't bring it up or care, instead mooching off of Punchy's welfare and just sitting on the couch and gaming. In the end, Layla does indeed move out, and he shows no remorse for causing it.
  • For the sake of science and research, Punchy gets Bananasauros to fuck a Ditto to make some eggs. Remember that this is a human mind inside of a dinosaur banana's body, being forced to have sex for whatever the hell species he is now.
  • Before leaving, Layla flat-out punches Bananasauros in the face. While Layla has every right to be angry at Bananasauros, he'd done nothing to instigate that.

The Clip Show: Catching Up

Sonichu 12

Episode 24, Part 2: The Clip Show: Catching Up

  • Sonichu has a dream where Rosechu and Chris are both trapped in a fire, and he only has time to save one of them. If he saves Chris, then Rosechu will die, and Sonichu won't be able to live without her. If he saves Rosechu, then Chris will die, and CWCville will have no mayor and cease to exist, killing everyone in it leaving everyone "lost in a void forever". Sonichu then saves Rosechu, abandoning everyone to their fate for the sake of someone who, for the record, will die anyway as a result of his own actions.

Sonichu Specials

  • In Sonichu Special 4, Chris decides to take matters into his own hands rather than contacting the local police and/or sending in an ally that could get to Kacey's kidnapper's location faster than he could driving at the speed limit.
  • After Chris disarms and wristlocks the kidnapper, Chris intentionally trips him and shoots him in each knee. This is at the very least maiming; Chris is fortunate that his opponent survived to star in CWC Defense, otherwise he'd be facing charges of 2nd or even 1st degree murder. Or not, since CWCVille is effectively an absolute monarchy; Chris rules with undefined power and is of course above the law.


  • One needs to read Mailbag 5 in conjunction with Sonichu 10 to really grasp the scope of this problem, but the CWCVille municipal government is extremely flawed. There are at least three major problems with the administration: the first is that after being thrown into the Time Void, an interim mayor should have been appointed from the city council's ranks if Chris was going to be gone for so long. Who this would be varies depending on the city's charter but this person is typically the chief administrator officer -- which for a city of CWCVille's size would be an elected position (and not Allison Amber) unless the democratic trappings are even more of a sham than we thought. The second is that we never actually see them doing any work. Why, for example, was city defense left (again) to Allison Amber instead of the chief of police? The third is that the city council didn't do anything to stop or inform others Chris's plan to commit mass murder despite him flat-out telling them; even an amateur paralegal would be able to get charges of conspiracy and accessory to murder to stick.
  • In gross violation of the 1st, 4th, 5th, and 14th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution Chris reveals that Magi-chan is engaged in psychic surveillance on CWCVille's populace to ensure that homosexuality is - as it in the author's own mind - thoroughly suppressed.
