We're back.

When you think about it, being a villain is a lot of hard work. You need to build up a base, and army, develop some kinda superweapon and then watch it all burn down and start again for the sequel. They must have some serious financial safety nets.

BM is right though. How do we know the main villians of games dont plan doing some evil plot together to take over the world? Maybe they join in some secret place or something.
JokerJay779 (Guest) edit delete reply
Good point CidYoshi.But another question is who is the leader of all of them?

CidYoshi
...Flowey?

Nah I am pretty sure that *UNDERTALE SPOILERS DO NOT READ THE REST OF THIS COMMENT IF YOU HAD NOT FINISHED PLAYING UNDERTALE AND HAD NOT GOTTEN THE TRUE PACIFIST ENDING YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!*









































Flowey is not really a bad guy anymore after the True Pacifist ending.

How do you know that ending is canon to Level 30's world?
NiGHTcapD (Guest) edit delete reply
There's a cannon ending? Cool!
JokerJay779 (Guest) edit delete reply
WHAT?! But that ending is best ending. For Undertale anyway. Besides Chara is the bigger threat I tell you what.
JokerJay779 (Guest) edit delete reply
Also it has been confirmed that True Pacifist Ending in Undertale = the canon ending. Also I would love to see Flowey going to Dr.Gardevoir for therapy sessions. He of all people need it.

no, asgore would need twice the counciling of a soulless flower. in one day, two of his children died, his life left him, he declared war on the people who killed his child, and all this after being forced to live underground for all eternity. he would be messed up
JokerJay779 (Guest) edit delete reply
By the way CidYoshi. Clearly the leader of such a video game villain group would be Dimentio.
Infernal_Translator (Guest) edit delete reply
Hmm… Good question. It would have to be someone well versed in interpersonal relationships, someone able to find compromise between two or more members. Someone who obviously isn't an egomaniacal sot.

In the immortal words: "King? I thought we were an autonomous collective"
JokerJay779 (Guest) edit delete reply
Who are you quoting?
apstorm (Guest) edit delete reply
Fairly sure it's from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the only scene where mention of an autonomous collective makes sense. Perhaps the most memorable part is where one of the characters of said collective says, "Help, help, I'm being repressed!"

Maybe villains are secretly only good at Logistics, and therefore can't focus on making their plans perfect because they're too busy making everything run.

Was Cortex's appearance planned long before Crash's return was actually announced? If so, congrats for another correct prediction!

I said it before and I'll say it again. We are game predicting wizards.

What are you talking about, we were completely correct then, the plan to bring back the bandicoot crashed into a brick wall and burned.
apstorm (Guest) edit delete reply
Sounds like there's an HD Remake series coming, and there's also his appearance in Skylanders.

Would agree with Gardivoir's logic but that only works for incompetent villians. It's the more serious villians like Ganandorf or any villian from a Square Enix RPG game you have to look out for. Also speaking of that would the Disney characters count as exsisting in this world since there in Kingdom Hearts?
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
Disney's legal team is more powerful than any dimensional merger so no Disney movie characters. Sora's ok and that guy from Spectrobes is too (anyone remember that?)
DragonMaster77 edit delete reply
DragonMaster77
Also are BM and Gardivoir in the Invertory? Cause that would be awesome ^^

What about hacks and scarped content and creepypastas in gaming
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
Do they count in the "gamingverse"?
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
I mean the comic
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
Also im sorry this is my first time commeting here and do you count hacks glitches scaped content and gaming creepypastas in the gaming world
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
Welcome aboard!

To answer your question, Missingno. appeared in an earlier comic. As for Scrapped content, maybe. Creepypastas, not typically.
JokerJay779 (Guest) edit delete reply
So are the scrapped content and beta content and what not all end up in some Wasteland like place?
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
Thank you and I imagine that they hang out in somewhere remote like a hidden forest or a secret place
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
Also does games that are from tv and the internet and tablet games
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
Alsi do they count sorry that this continues in two comments
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
I mean also and I think tgat the leader should be sonic exe insted of fliwey because sonice exe is more serious and eviler and since hes a creepypasta he dosent have an actual game and that means he could do whatever he wants
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
Sorry that I just ranted

MightyBox, do you go on twitch often? I've seen a user by the name of "The MightyBox" and have been curious if it was you.
TheMightyBox edit delete reply
TheMightyBox
I literally only frequent one stream, but if you're talking about Lythero, then yes that's me.
(Guest) (Guest) edit delete reply
That is exactly who I was talking about. Co-incidences are funny.
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
Mighty, do charecters from games that are made from different types of media live in this comic too?
TheMightyBox edit delete reply
TheMightyBox
Nope.
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
Ok then
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
Ok mighty,do computer games live in this comic?
TheMightyBox edit delete reply
TheMightyBox
Uh, computer games like Space Quest? Or, TF2?
Because, yes.

Hey MightyBox? Do Warframe Characters count in this? Cuz I really wanna see how Alad V does with his unfortunate nickname of Salad V... Or any of the Tenno and their issues, like maybe Valkyr post-Corpus experimentation...

Although I haven't seen 117 make an appearance yet... Wonder when's he getting on the couch?
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
Ok then
InfernapeK (Guest) edit delete reply
About the video games with cartoon, anime, or manga counterparts, are they represented, or just the video game version?
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
Ok here we go.

It's a personal peeve of mine when gaming crossover works start getting in movie and anime characters on technicality of them having been in games so it's (for the most part) only characters that debuted in games.

Exceptions are Strider Hiryu who was a manga/game collab, Sam & Max who were an obscure comic before getting made into adventure games and Officer Jenny who debuted in an anime adaptation of a game and is used because of recognisability (and appeared in Pokemon Yellow).

Come to think of it, Chansey and Audino could also count as the idea of them being nurses debuted in the Anime.
InfernapeK (Guest) edit delete reply
Also, we seem to have a lot of questions, sorry about that

Death (Guest) edit delete reply
Well, since this has pretty much become "ask the team" time, and because of that thread about *shudders* Undertale, I'm curious. How do you guys determine canon in this universe for games with multiple endings? Is it "We like this one, so it's this ending," do you go with the Dragon Break idea used in Elder Scrolls lore, where all endings happened at once, what?
TheMightyBox edit delete reply
TheMightyBox
I don't get how people can consider the Neutral and No Mercy endings canon, they both end with the game essentially telling the player "Alright now do again." and booting them back to the beginning of the game.
TheMightyBox edit delete reply
TheMightyBox
Oh wait, I misread.
You're asking about games with multiple endings just in general.
In that case, it just depends :0
lunar the umbreon (Guest) edit delete reply
I wonder whos gonna be on the couch next?
InfernapeK (Guest) edit delete reply
Before ask the team ends, I'd like to ask one (hopefully) last question. Where do the game destroying glitches that make missingno seems tame end up, such as CharizardM or some other glitch I don't know about and how are they not destroying the world?
TheMightyBox edit delete reply
TheMightyBox
I dunno. Most of the worldbuilding we have is stuck in Guy's head/some old old documents buried at the bottom of a dropbox.

I presume the .hackers are on the case tho.
InfernapeK (Guest) edit delete reply
Thanks for the question answering session guys, it was nice to figure out some of the lore and how this world works
TheMightyBox edit delete reply
TheMightyBox
I mean, y'all can ask questions whenever you want, so long as they're not the same question over and over I try an answer them.
I guess I'm kinda the unofficial pr guy, by which I mean I have the most free time :0
