Lost media refers to media that once existed but has been lost or destroyed or media that has never been released publicly. This article aims to document the following kinds of lost media:
- Media made by or featuring Chris which was once publicly available on the internet but has since disappeared or is fragmentary.
- Media made by or featuring Chris which is known to exist but which has never been released to the public.
- Media made by trolls that Chris has responded to or acknowledged.
- Relics of Fail whose current whereabouts are unknown or were destroyed (excluding those that Chris is known to have sold to fans).
Because of the broad scope of the article, it is unlikely to ever be complete. Of course, some lost media is of greater interest to Christorians than other lost media.
Pre-internet discovery Lost Media
The Autism papers were a series of papers detailing the mental state of Chris and to what extent he has autism. Most of these papers appeared to have been destroyed in the 2014 house fire as none of them have appeared since. Even if not destroyed in the 2014 house fire, the hoard that is 14 Branchland Court makes finding these papers next to impossible, making these papers almost certainly lost. However, one paper from 2004 survives as it was e-mailed to Kacey by Chris who passed it on to Liquid Chris who then distributed the paper online in November 2009.
Christian Weston Chandler...Yep, I'm on TV :) (Master Copy)
An extended edition of Chris's 2007 homemade DVD allegedly featuring over six hours of original content. Chris offered to share it with Regina in their emails. It is unknown if it survived the 2014 fire.
CWC's Diary refers to a series of entries published between 2004-2005 in a diary format. It is unknown if these entries came from a physical diary or from Chris's blogs on MySpace and Facebook. It must be remembered that the entries available are the ones Chris made public on Encyclopedia Dramatica and that the diary in its entirety has not been found. With Chris's MySpace being deleted in mid-2008 and a physical diary not emerging CWC's Diary in its entirety is lost.
CWC's Pokésite 1
CWC's Pokésite 1, originally known as CWC's Pokésite, was Chris's first website launched between the 25th of April and the 3rd of July 1999. Chris appears to have abandoned the site in late July as on the 22nd of July CWC's Pokésite 2 was launched. The content of CWC's Pokésite 1 is lost as the site is no longer up and the archive of the site only has three pages with the rest not working. Also, the site guestbook is still available. A Spanish version of the site also existed, however, the site is down and it was never archived making this lost as well.
How to Attract an 18 - ... -Year Old Female Companion Without Saying "Hi" (For the Very Shy Man)
The work is a pamphlet created by Chris on how to attract women. The date of creation is unknown however as Chris uses the pseudonym "Reldnahc Netso' Naitsirhc" a misspelling of Reldnahc Notsew Naitsirhc which was created on 24 March 2005 it is likely that the pamphlet was created sometime after though a terminus ante quem has not been established. While the front cover exists the rest of the pamphlet has not emerged either because it does not exist or because it is lost.
The report cards are a series of papers from Chris's education detailing his grades and academic progress. There has been no mention of these documents since the 2014 house fire, likely being destroyed and thereby lost. Even if not destroyed Chris, claimed before the house fire in 2009 within Mailbag 19 that he could not access the documents. Considering how cluttered 14 Branchland Court is and Chris not having access to the documents, to begin with, it is unlikely that the documents can be found, making them lost if they have not been destroyed. However, Chris's grades can be seen in the assignments that have survived in the Manchester High Leaks, so Chris's grades are not entirely lost.
Sonic the Hedgehog Watch & Win Sweepstakes (items)
The Sonic the Hedgehog Watch & Win Sweepstakes was a contest held in 1993 in which the person who wrote down every "Sonic Sez" segment and sent it in would get the chance to win certain prizes, with the biggest prize being a $1,000 shopping spree at Kay-Bee Toys. Chris won this contest in 1994 and got the $1,000 shopping spree; however, only five items have been known to be purchased:
- Batman Returns ($49.99)
- Sonic CD (unknown price)
- Sonic Spinball ($49.99)
- "Star Trek" (probably Star Trek: The Next Generation: Echoes from the Past) (unknown price)
- "Power Rangers Megazord" (unknown price. Estimate $29.99)
It is unknown what other items Chris bought with the remaining $857.04 (not including the prices of Sonic CD and the Star Trek game) and are thereby lost. Furthermore, as revealed in a 21 June 2021 message on The Place Discord server, only Sonic CD was still in Chris's possession at that point, with the rest either having perished in the fire or sold off.
Post-internet discovery Lost Media

Two DMs are known with the former, leaked on 23 December 2019, only having one quote from Chris preserved with the rest of their communication being lost.
eBay Purchases and Listings (2001-2008)
Chris has been using eBay since all the way back in 2001. While this wiki has archived most of Chris's eBay listings (and purchases) from 2008 onward, the same can't be said for his previous ones prior to that year. There have been a few records of his purchases from that era, but not a whole lot, and especially nothing of his potential listings. Chris's bans and suspensions from eBay, as well as potentially using sockpuppets, also make archiving these difficult, so it's possible these bits of info are lost.
Fiona Facetime Video
One video of Fiona and Chris interacting over Facetime, Hair Twirling, was censored by the CWCki due to a policy at the time which called for censoring Fiona's appearances. The source for the original video is unknown.

Julie Reveals Herself (Video)
Julie Reveals Herself is a Mumble chat between Bluespike and Chris on 3 March 2009 which involves shoving the Sonichu Medallion up his rectum and Julie revealing herself to be a boy. While the audio of the chat exists, the video that accompanied it, which includes footage of Chris shoving the Sonichu Medallion up his rectum, is lost. It's worth noting that Chris claimed he didn't record himself doing so, so it's possible a video recording never existed to begin with (and given the rest of the trolls were disgusted at what was going on, it's possibly unlikely they didn't have a recording of it either).
My Half of A Whole New World for Kacey (Kacey's Part)
On 31 October 2009 Chris made a video singing the male part of the lyrics to the song "A Whole New World", in response to Kacey uploading a video singing the female part of the same song. While Chris's video is available, Kacey's video has been taken down by YouTube and is currently lost.

There are other files aside from Red Forest to have existed with the only known one being revealed by Wise in the Idea Guy Q&A in which Wise used Chris's audio in an altered form to manipulate him. This audio has never been realized and it is unknown how many other audio clips existed as none aside from Red Forest have been leaked making them lost.
Simonchu was a parody comic of Sonichu staring the eponymous character Simonchu created on 26 August 2008. As the comic was hosted on Asperpedia which shut down in 2010 and the archive of Simonchu has its file link request invalidated the comic is lost aside from some fragments.

Sonichu's Live PS4 Broadcast
The "Black Tape"
It is said that Marvin and other trolls, using the Jackie identity as a catfish, attempted to contact Chris over the phone shortly after Bob's death for unclear reasons; Chris was noted to be audibly upset as he cried throughout the conversation. While the audio was recorded and archived on what is referred to as the "Black Tape" by some Christorians, the contents of the call were never released publicly due to Chris's miserable emotional state. The trolls who participated in the call realized after the fact that it was simply too soon to try to reach out to Chris in this fashion and, for a change, opted to respect his privacy for once. The Black Tape either still exists in the hands of the trolls who participated in its creation, or it has been lost to time.
The Sonichu Chronicles (Slides)
The Sonichu Chronicles was a PowerPoint presentation made by Chris in January 2009 and was presented to Shigeru Miyamoto and Reggie Fils-Aimé as to give ideas on a Sonichu game. The transcript of the texts of the PowerPoint slides is available. However, the PowerPoint file is missing, making the slides currently lost. However, an image of the intro slide is available.

Unreleased Jackie E-mails
Between 5 April 2010 to 7 September 2011, Jackie and Chris interacted with each other over emails which have been compiled into 31 sets. However, the emails present are the ones Alec Benson Leary compiled and it is confirmed that Jackie and Chris had email conversations that Alec Benson Leary omitted due to them being irrelevant. Considering how long ago these events happened, it is likely that these unreleased emails will never surface, making them lost.
Unreleased Miscreant Interactions
The Miscreants were a group of trolls consisting of many of the most notable, including Clyde Cash and Liquid Chris. While many of their interactions with Chris are known, Marvin has confirmed that a significant amount of chats and calls the Miscreants and Chris had have not been released. Considering how long ago these interactions happened and the fact it is unknown if anyone has these unreleased chats and calls, these interactions are likely lost.
The Asperchu Medallion was a variant of the Sonichu medallion featuring Asperchu instead of Sonichu sent to Chris by Alec Benson Leary. It is unknown when Alec Benson Leary sent the medallion to Chris however the medallion was first seen in Chris's Magical Man Potion video uploaded on 24 February 2010. Chris revealed in a Facebook post made on 2 August 2014 that the Asperchu Medallion was destroyed in the 2014 house fire, making it lost.
The Attraction Signs were a series of signs detailing his desire for a boyfriend-free girl that Chris used from 2004 to 2014. All the signs made before the 2014 house fire have not appeared since likely being destroyed in the event, thereby making them lost. One sign has been made since the 2014 house fire on July 2014 on Chris's OkCupid account, however, it has also not appeared since likely making it lost.
Heart Torch of Fail
The Heart Torch of Fail was a torch made of Pixelblocks that has an unknown significance to the Love Quest. The torch was made sometime before or during 2005 as it appears in Sonichu 4, which was produced in the year 2005. Since its appearance in 2005, it has never been seen since likely, being destroyed in the 2014 house fire, thereby making it lost.
The Medallions refers to the Sonichu Medallions made by Chris over the course of his life. The prototype medallion which Chris wore in 2004 as it is mentioned in the Autism papers disappeared after this year and is believed to be lost in the literal sense. The 4th iteration of the Sonichu Medallions, which was made after April 2017, was last seen with Chris's arrest on 1 August 2021. It is unknown what happened to this medallion as Chris has made no mention of it since and has not been seen with it in his mugshots. Therefore it is possible that this medallion was destroyed or discarded by the authorities, making it lost.
Red String of Fate
The Red String of Fate was a string with a paper heart attached on the end designed to attract a boyfriend-free girl that Chris created on 1 August 2004. In anime like Excel Saga, of which Chris likely got the idea from as he watched Excel Saga before creating the Red String of Fate, the red string is used as a metaphor to in courting love. However, Chris did not see the metaphor and would throw the red string at women in the hopes of "reeling" them in. On 5 August 2004 a mall security guard confiscated it and it has never resurfaced, likely being destroyed and thereby lost.
The Wall of Originals
The Wall of Originals was a wall covered in Chris's customized Pokémon cards. Most of the cards from the wall were destroyed in the 2014 house fire, although some survived as revealed in a July 2017 tweet and Chris listing the surviving cards on eBay in June 2018.

ShecameforCWC.JPG is a pornographic drawing consisting of Chris vaginally stimulating Megan Schroeder uploaded to Encyclopedia Dramatica on 11 November 2007. On 4 November 2013, Chris announced that he would destroy ShecameforCWC.JPG, leading to the belief that the original drawing had been lost, which was confirmed by a tweet Chris made on January 2018, confirming he had destroyed ShecameforCWC.JPG. However, on April 2018, Chris listed ShecameforCWC.JPG for sale on his eBay, which was bought by the Teen Troon Squad. It turned out that Chris had not destroyed the drawing but cut it up into squares - making it easy to reassemble - before placing it in the Crumple-Lope, rendering it lost but not destroyed. It is unknown what the Teen Troon Squad have done with ShecameforCWC.JPG but it can be presumed they still own it, though they have not shown it off.

Unknown Lost Media
While this article has listed lost media associated with Chris, this is the only lost media known to have existed and is now lost.
