This isn't even close to being everyone.

Have you ever messed with one of those silly 12-character memes and gotten a "what if character X got character Y pregnant?" question, and then wondered what would have happened if that child was actually born?

The intrepid weirdos of a certain Fanfiction.net forum did. And this is the RP (found here) they created based on that idea.

You might want to run now.

Now has its own Shout Out page.

Tropes found in this roleplay include:

A-E

 "I like [Madigan]- not the way that Wilson apparently does, but still. She's like a sister."

 "How did you-never mind. With the way my luck has been, [Newt figuring out his real name] is the least of my worries."

Cquote2.svg
    • Wilson, too. Part of it's due to his cowardice, but part of it's also due to his roleplayer's lack of attention to what is going on.
    • Dorian was specifically designed to be slapstick fodder.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Dusk seemed to have this problem with telling Piper that he wanted them to be more than Just Friends.
  • Cast From Hit Points: If Thaddeus goes overboard with the casting, this happens.
  • Catch Phrase: Susan's is a variation of her dad's:

 Dusk: "Mathew, she's calling you an a-"

Siren: "Alejandro. Nice choice."

 Kyle: Well, where would you suggest we start looking? It's not like the guy's in the motherfucking phone book.

Xavier: Watch your goddamn language!

K-O

  • Katanas Are Just Better: Kyle and Delon believe this.
  • Kill It with Fire: Mathew attempted this on Kurgan Junior. For obvious reasons, it didn't work.
    • Ellen had a flamethrower with her at one point and used it against some of the Husks.
    • What Ellen, Call, and Ripley almost did to Konrad.
  • Kitsch Collection: Delon has a lot of dragon memorabilia.
  • Knife Nut: Inochitori.
    • Rowan, sort of, although a more accurate term would be Scalpel Nut.
  • Lame Comeback: Augustin is bad at coming up with comebacks.
  • Laser Blade: Jezebel has one.
  • Laughing Mad: Kyle had a brief bout of this when he first learned that he Has Two Daddies.
  • Lolicon: Played disturbingly straight with Dusk's parents. However, given how vague his father has been about the details on his mother, it's safe to say that he doesn't know about this.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Piper was quite shocked when Jim told her that Salvation was her half-brother.
    • Kyle didn't react too well to finding out that Xavier was his half-brother. His reaction included much profanity, and attempted murder.
    • Kyle was also surprised when he heard from his Disappeared Dad, "Russel".
    • When Bernie's father revealed that Kurgan Junior was technically his step-sister, not only was Bernie shocked, but about half of the group was as well. Kurgan Junior didn't believe it either when she was told about it.
  • Lovable Coward: Dusk, Tempest and Danger (the latter is not a mistake, though).
  • Love At First Sight: Ted immediately started crushing on Delta when he first saw her.
    • Similarly, Rowan became instantly, er, interested in Wilson.
  • Love Confession: Dusk did...something like that with Piper. She ended up returning the feelings.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: The eight tentacles in Anurto's chest can be used as weapons.
  • Love Dodecahedron: Kainashi seems very attached to Rowan, but Rowan is much more interested in Wilson. Jezebel might also arguably like Wilson, but she might also like Thaddeus, whom may like her back. Wilson also had that disturbingly Out-of-Character Moment where he said he liked Madigan (which his roleplayer said was a joke, but since there still seems to be no decent in-canon explanation for said confession...), but Siren ships her with Bernie (which seems to aggravate him). Wilson and Augustin both seemed to show some interest in Ellen Junior, but then she and Kyle ended up becoming an Official Couple. Augustin seemed a bit upset with hearing that, but then Cass came along and he started to take some interest in her (or at least Mathew thinks so, and he seems to be right).
  • Mad Scientist: Rowan and Chester.
    • Augustin's "mouse father" was one.
    • One of Zetta's fathers was one as well.
    • While not a parent to her, there was a mad scientist who managed to get (read: almost force) Piper's parents together (one by the name of Dr. Insano, who just so happens to be Zetta's mad scientist father). Something similar happened when the alternate-universe, mad scientist counterpart of Bernie's father managed to find a way to make his parents get together...without his father's consent.
    • Siren's Parental Substitute, Dr. Jumbaa.
    • Ellen's father counts, given what she witnessed towards the end of the scrying session after watching her father kidnap her mother.
  • Magic Versus Science: Thaddeus is obviously on the side involving magic, some of the others are on the side involving science, and both Jezebel and Bernie are for both.
  • Make a Wish: How Heather came to be.
  • Maligned Mixed Marriage: KJ's mom (African-American) and Bernie's dad (British caucasian) are Happily Married, but they have reportedly dealt with a few problems that others have had concerning their marriage. It's not been mentioned with any character within the roleplay itself, and given the other kinds of relationships that have been in this, it's not nearly as unusual as some of the other things going on, so even if it does get brought up, nobody will probably be that bothered by it.
  • Man Child: Mathew draws fantastically colorful pictures with crayons. Pictures that often depict truly bizarre and sometimes horrifying images.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Dusk and Piper have this dynamic.
  • May-December Romance: Thaddeus's father was in his mid thirties while his mother was in her late twenties when he was born.
    • Dusk's parents would be a disturbingly exaggerated version of this (his mother was not a teenager yet, and his father is goodness knows how old). Dusk doesn't know about this, either.
    • The age difference between Bernie's parents was about the same as that of Thaddeus' parents. However, there wasn't any actual romance involved in it. At least not on his father's part.
  • Meaningful Name: Siren is, fittingly, a beautiful girl (sort of) who can charm most anyone with her voice.
    • "Inochitori" is Japanese for "deadly mistake".
    • "Kainashi" means "worthless".
  • Merlin and Nimue: Thaddeus and Jezebel, though the age difference isn't very large, like some of the other examples.
  • Mind Manipulation: Anurto can do this, but it hasn't surfaced yet.
  • Mind Rape: Xavier can do this, though it comes with a price...
  • Mismatched Eyes: Rowan (one green, one black) and Madigan (one red, one button). This is no longer the case for the latter.
  • Missing Mom: Dusk, Kurgan Junior, Roxy, Xavier, Inochitori, Jezebel, Salvation, Mathew, Fawn, Delon, Thaddeus and Bernie.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Rowan, until proven otherwise...
    • Kainashi, too, after he and Rowan ended up sharing a room in Thaddeus's house.
    • Siren suspects that Bernie's father, Reginald, is gay. Given who he mostly resembles (and Siren mistakes him for), it's safe to say that it's not the first time that he's had that happen to him, either.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: There are a couple of these.
  • Moment Killer: Dorian does not like having people acting romantic when he's around.
  • Motor Mouth: Dorian. Just. Does. Not. Shut. Up.
    • Susan is so talkative that Thaddeus had to cast a silencing spell on her just to get her to shut up.
  • Mister Seahorse: Happened with poor Augustin's father. Well, one of them...
    • Rowan came into being via this, too. No one on either side of his family likes to talk about it.
    • Kyle's parents probably had this happen with him too.
    • Grover's had this happen with him as well.
    • Yuuka's dad was the one who gave birth to her. What makes her different from the rest is that her other parent is a woman.
  • Multicolored Hair: Inochitori (half brown, half turquoise), Avalon (rose colored with black stripes), Danger (dark purple with black stripes), Jezebel (brown with blonde streaks), Mathew (black and orange tiger stripes), and Faeton (black with white stripes).
    • Piper could arguably apply, considering her Furry Female Mane is orange while the rest of her fur is brown (with a couple of orange patches, but they aren't usually visible).
  • Mundane Utility: The Eldritch Abomination under Thaddeus's sink serves as a garbage disposal.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Rowan plans on doing this to Wilson's toothbrush, an object that the latter seems to pay much more attention to than...most anyone else, really. Which would technically make this an odd justified case.
  • Mysterious Past: A few of the Mistakes have these.
  • Nakama: What Mathew is trying to get the Mistakes to become.
  • Natural Weapon: Siren's claws (which are conveniently hidden under her gloves).
  • Necromancer: Thaddeus. Xavier is a better example of a "historical" necromancer who deals with shades for information.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Once you get over the Squick involved in their conceptions, a lot of the Mistakes are really cool hybrids.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Kurgan Junior gave one to Dorian, something that even upset Susan, who says that it doesn't prove that she loves him.
  • No Kill Like Overkill: When Thaddeus kills someone, there's no evidence left to prove that he did it.
  • Noodle Incident: It's never fully understood what exactly was said in the conversation between Augustin and the fifth Russel Nash, but we probably don't want to know what he said, either...
    • We know that Siren was almost successful in seducing Piper's father and that she stopped it, but we don't know much about it aside from that. According to what Kyle and Xavier found out about it, the details are probably better left unsaid.
  • Not That Kind of Mage: Not many people seem to understand what Thaddeus does.
  • Not What It Looks Like: During the fight with KJ, Ellen and Kyle accidentally land in a rather awkward position.
  • Oblivious to Love: Wilson. Dear God, Wilson. Not only is he oblivious to others who love him, but he seems to be oblivious to others who are in love in general. (See also: The Last of These Is Not Like the Others.)
    • Piper was oblivious to Dusk's crush on her until he finally spit it out. It was more obvious to a few others.
  • Odd Name Out: Kurgan Junior's, until proven otherwise; concerning the little family chain she's in, her mother's name is Anna, her technical step-father's name is Reginald, and her step-brother's name is Bernie, all of which are related to musicians of a sort. However, her own roleplayer never thought of a real name for her until some of the others mentioned Tina being a decent one. Even then, it still applies given that she renamed herself after her dead dad.
  • Official Couple: Dusk Boogie and Piper Cheeks.
    • Later, Kyle Macleod and Ellen "Newt" Ripley Junior.
    • And even later, Xavier Draven and Yuuka Kralie.
  • Older Than They Look: Dorian looks about thirteen, but he's really somewhere between his late sixties and early seventies.
    • Siren suggested that it might have been the case with Bernie in a pathetic attempt to justify her sudden interest in him, to which he immediately tells her that he really is only fourteen.
    • Kurgan Junior is a less obvious version; she appears to be in her late teens or early twenties, but she's technically twenty-six.
    • Master II is one-hundred years old and he doesn't look like it at all.
    • Nana-tsuki may look about twenty-six, but he's actually over four-hundred years old.
    • Kyle's dad "Russel Nash", for sure.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Salvation takes after his father - who just happens to be Harbinger.
    • Kainashi is one, as well.
  • Only Sane Man: Out of all of the "Mistakes", Yuuka comes the closest to being sane.
    • Jim, in his own opinion. In truth, he's actually more like the Unfazed Everyman.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Anurto is a ghost-like alien hybrid.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: This one feeds on human emotion, is a wraith that has risen from the dead, is immune to sunlight, and loves snuggles.

P-T

  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Rowan tries disguising himself by turning his coat inside-out, wearing gloves, sunglasses, speaking with a fake British accent and calling himself Keith.
  • Parental Abandonment: Salvation's father disowned him for being "half-organic."
    • Xavier's mother also dropped him off in the Shadowlands and fled into the night.
    • Bernie's mother left him with his father. (Not that either of them mind.)
    • Zetta's father (well, one of them) traded her off to the other parent.
    • It was arguably what happened with Kurgan Junior's mom, but as it turned out a Mad Scientist separated the two of them and dropped her mother off in a completely different time, leaving KJ by herself in her own time.
  • Parental Favoritism: Faeton's father prefers her over her brother, Anurto, much to her dislike.
  • Parental Substitute: Siren was raised by her creator Dr. Jumbaa Jookiba.
    • Kyle had one as well in the form of a woman named Amanda Reese.
    • Thaddeus was raised by foster parents, for a chunk of his life.
    • Inochitori was raised by the Vocaloids due to the fact that both of her parents are dead.
    • Master II has had many adoptive parents over the years.
  • Parody Sue: Siren is supposed to be one.
  • Patchwork Kids: A lot of the Mistakes work this way.
  • Portmanteau: Augustin's species name, "mourat", is a combination of "mouse" and "rat", the two respectful species of his, er, parents.
    • Similarly, Word of God has refered to Mathew as a "wolfer", a wolf-tiger.
    • Fawn's creator calls her species "reincat" as a combination of reindeer and cat.
    • Heather's roleplayer has refered to her as a "crickouse", a cricket-mouse.
  • Powered Armor: Jezebel has a battle suit that is gray with light blue accents. It comes with a Cool Helmet, too.
  • Power Perversion Potential: Kyle encourages Xavier to do this with his "synching" abilities. No one is amused by this.
  • Professor Half-Squirrel: Chester performed many of his experiments on himself.
  • Psychic Powers: Xavier has quite a few different psychic abilities.
    • Through testing his own experiments on himself, Chester managed to gain the ability to use Telepathy. However, he cannot use this power for very long elseways he'll be weakened.
    • Faeton has a form of Telekinesis that she inherited from her father.
  • Put on a Bus: Angelo Kisaragi.
    • Roxy Krueger, too.
  • Quizzical Tilt: Augustin and Mathew are prone to doing these.
    • Madigan's done this twice; first at the coffee shop, then later at Thaddeus's house, which was shortly followed up with a Big "What?" upon finding out that Bernie and Kurgan Junior were long-lost step-siblings.
    • Dusk did this once when he heard that Rowan wanted to borrow something from Wilson while the latter was sleeping.
    • Heather has done this at least once.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: Played with quite a bit.
  • Reference Overdosed: It has its own Shout-Out page!
  • Relationship Upgrade: Piper and Dusk went from being Just Friends to Official Couple.
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: Xavier seems to think so.
  • Right Behind Me: Xavier calls Jim a Robosexual...as Jim is standing behind him.
  • Robot Buddy: Jezebel has one named Ted (short for Technical Evaluation Droid).
  • Running Gag: "Deformed Flipper Person", "Deformed Flipper Babies", and all it's other variations. Often coupled with I'm Going to Hell For This.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: He never specifically drops the title, but Bernie has made it clear that Madigan is not his girlfriend.
    • Gender-flipped between Piper and Dusk towards the beginning of the roleplay.
  • Shipper on Deck: Siren seems to like shipping Bernie with Madigan. Thaddeus and Mathew might be having similar thoughts, but it's not entirely clear if they are or not (not even to their roleplayer).
  • Ship Sinking: Whatever chance that there was for Rowan to hook up with Wilson was demolished after Rowan caught Wilson with Siren and then tried to kill him.
    • Before Ellen began dating Kyle, Augustin expressed interest in her. However, Augustin ended up with Cass.
  • Ship Tease: Well, with a cast this big, there's plenty, intended or otherwise.
  • Shotacon: Averted when Siren tries making advances on Bernie and he's clearly not comfortable with it.
  • Shown Their Work: Augustin's roleplayer has done research on mice and rats in order to know more about both and know more about some of the physical aspects that he would inherit.
    • Similarly, Mathew's roleplayer has done his research on wolves for Mathew, badgers for Tumnus, and mice for Cass.
  • Shrinking Violet: Dusk (though now he doesn't act quite as shy as before), Tempest, Anurto, Zetta and Danger (the latter of which is not a "mistake").
  • Slap Slap Kiss: Although it was more of a Slap-Kick to the Groin-Kiss between Augustin and Cass...
  • Split Personality: Madigan.
    • Xavier, to an extent.
  • Spoiled Brat: Dorian's mother has spoiled him too much.
    • Chester's parents have done this to him as well.
    • Averted with Faeton; her father tries spoiling her, but she doesn't accept it.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Jennifer looks very much like her mother, Lucy.
    • Kyle looks a lot like his dad, Connor MacLeod/"Russel Nash".
    • Xavier's looks are identical to those of his father, Eric Draven.
    • The Master II resembles actor Anthony Ainley whom played The Master in the classic episodes of Doctor Who. However, he doesn't have a beard like his father.
    • Bernie looks an awful lot like a younger, blond version of his dad, Reginald Stewart.
    • Dusk looks so similar to his dad, Oogie Boogie, that some of the roleplayers have assumed that he's also dead/undead and has burlap skin. His roleplayer is a bit irked by said assumptions.
    • Ellen Junior looks like her mother, Ellen Ripley.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: Rowan says that he's straight; honest!
    • Also, all of Rowan's patients? Yeah, they all definitely died on accident. Yep; every single one of them.
    • Susan's comment about being the only one allowed to beat up Dorian is not an indication that she likes him, no way.
  • Sweet Tooth: Yuuka has one for brownies.
  • Teach Him Anger: Mathew had to go through this when confronting Kurgan Junior.
  • Team Mom: Piper, arguably.
  • Team Pet: Mathew and/or his parrot, Squawky.
  • Tell Me About My Father: Part of why some of the "mistakes" were at the Shady Abortion Clinic, though Dusk's reason for being there was a gender-flipped case.
    • Ellen Junior eventually found out about her father and what happened to him.
    • Delon and Fawn would also like to know more about their fathers (and Fawn wants to know more about her Missing Mom as well).
  • The Alcoholic: Kyle is this. As is Rowan, who is considerably more lighthearted about it.
  • The Alleged Car: Jim's pick-up truck, evidently.
  • The Apprentice: Bernie, now that he's studying under Thaddeus.
    • Faeton was her father's apprentice, for a while.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: When Dusk was listing off certain events that Delta missed, he mentioned that Kyle and Xavier were long lost half-brothers, "Keith" was someone they recruited to drive Kyle's bike back from the bar, Kyle's father talked to someone who sent a group of Husks after them, and that Wilson wet his pants (Piper shortly afterwards explained that he just had a drink spilled on him at the bar). Okay...Why was that last one important?
  • The Load: Wilson Wilson. He's half-Jedi, his wounds can heal themselves within twenty-four hours, but he is cowardly and hesitant, so he doesn't seem to live up to his full potential. Some of the other characters are trying to change this.
    • Yuuka, though she hates herself for it. In her defense, she is a fairly average teenager who doesn't have any sort of unique powers or strengths like some of the others.
  • The Matchmaker: Siren, of all people, occassionally does this when she can't get someone for herself (usually with an underlying hope for a possible threesome later).
  • The Mean Brit: Not really played straight at first; Rowan pretended to be one for a while, but he isn't really British, and Bernie, who really is British (well, half), isn't mean. However, it is played straight with Dorian, who is both British and a tremendous pain in the ass.
  • The Nicknamer: Kyle. He rarely calls anyone by their actual name.
  • The Obi-Wan: "Russel Nash" acts as this for the mistakes.
  • The Power of Rock: Xavier has it.
  • The Smart Guy: Kyle has dubbed Augustin as such.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Piper, Faeton, and Kurgan Junior look quite pretty in their concept art, despite their respective fathers being a deformed flipper person, a creepy-looking alien, and a barbaric immortal.
  • The Unfavorite: Anurto is his father's unfavorite, as he prefers Faeton.
    • Mathew is Kate's unfavorite.
    • Xun Li is the unfavorite of his mother, Ginger, which has a rather disastrous result...
    • Wilson has been (jokingly) called his roleplayer's unfavorite due to the severe lack of attention and Character Development that he gives him in comparison to the rest of his characters.
      • This has now been confirmed as true; he even admitted that he should've given him to someone else.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch: Kyle's done this a few times...

  Kyle: Bitch, I'm fucking immortal.
