Megagi La Skunk (pronounced [mɛˈgɑːdʒi], "meh-GAW-jee") is one of Megan Schroeder's furry-inspired characters, who first appears alongside Megan as her Sailor Fighter "partner" and later begins dating Bionic the Hedgehog. She has outlived her creator's presence in the comic, similar to Jiggliami, except Megan was
(probably) not a troll a far greater troll than Blanca.
Megagi was originally called Spunky Skunk; the reason why Chris changed her name is unclear (although most likely an obsession over someone with a similar name). She also did not have breasts in her original drawing or first appearances in the comic, but Chris added them in later for unknown reasons.
Given her name, color scheme and species, she likely constitutes a plagiarism of Tiny Toon Adventures character Fifi La Fume. She may also be a ripoff of the Sonic character Fang the Sniper (Nack the Weasel), given her color and design. Funnily enough, her colors are also the same as those used to symbolize bisexual pride.
Megagi used to have a somewhat different personality from the other female characters; she seemed to be the tomboyish type, and Chris described her as being like an "Army Soldier". In Sonichu #6, she calls Chris out on his shit, and she chews him out for ogling Megan when he should be saving the day. Although the rough-and-ready tomboy archetype is not exactly original, it was at least different from the typical Rosechu who just liked shopping. However, in Sonichu #9, she gets watered down just like the rest of them – girly and no personality – and later on in the comic she is further reduced to being Bionic's personal cheerleader.
When Megan drew the character, she wrote the words "Parody Island" next to it. This appears to refer to the place where she lives, which was renamed by Chris as "Parodyse Island". Along with three other unnamed individuals, she serves as protector of the island. She's described by Chris as being physically strong. Her scent attack is of lesser power, but is still potent. It should be noted that said scent attack was never seen in the comic itself.
According to her CWCipedia page, she came "from a mysterious land far, far away with her partner Megan Schroeder". However, it should be noted that her CWCipedia biography was not authored by Chris.
Bionic the Hedgehog asks Christian to create a girlfriend for him, leading CWC to suggest that he should date one of Megan's characters.

Turning on her Sailor Fighter partner
In a series of increasingly vitriolic Facebook posts directed at Megan, Chris claims to have talked directly with Megagi, who has some particularly nasty things to say about her original creator. Whilst Chris is known to believe that Sonichu and the other comic characters are real to an extent, it's still somewhat unsettling to see it weaponized to justify threats and slander.
