  • >

    About

    Bonus Ducks is a voice line by the non-playable character Merasmus from the first person shooter Team Fortress 2(TF2). In one of the minigames from the game’s 2014 Halloween update, the line would repeat various times without a cooldown in a similar fashion to Overtime,. The line is associated with the Duck Journal Event released in December 2014.[3]

    Origin

    The Team Fortress 2 Annual Scream Fortress VI update was released on October 29, 2014, and featured a carnvial-inspired map where, every time a team won a round, a bumper car minigame was triggered with several variations.[5] One of the variations, “Looting Gallery”, featured a large figure-8-shaped race track where the teams had to collect 200 golden rubber ducks in order to win. When a player dealt damage with the car by crashing into another player, “bonus” golden ducks would appear, along with the audio clip “Bonus Ducks!”, as spoken by the NPC Merasmus.[2] The clip lacked a cooldown, however, meaning whenever a car collided with another car, the clip would play continuously. A cooldown was added on November 7, 2014.[6]



    Spread

    On November 1, 2014, Youtuber Uncle Dane uploaded a video titled “Bonus Ducks Hitsound”, featuring the voice line as hitsound and givind a link to download the mod. On November 8, 2014, YouTuber Purple doom uploaded a video titled “CS:GO BONUSDUCKS!”, where the voice lineis mixed with kills from Counter Strike: Global Offensive. As of March 9, 2015, the video has over 7,000 views. On the Team Fortress 2 subreddit /r/tf2, the upvote arrow was replaced by a duck, and duck flairs were added in November, 2014.[7]



    End of the Line Update

    On December 8, 2014, the End of the Line update was released, which featured the Duck Journal event, where whenever the player was killed, ducks were spawned and could be picked up.[4] These ducks gave experience points, though being able to view one’s level was only available by buying a Duck Journal in the game shop. This was poorly received by the fans, who saw this as a Pay to Win event.[8][9]



    The next day, a Bonus Ducks game page was created, where one can click the ducks to hear the voice line.[1] On December 12, 2014, YouTuber MrBreadedchicken uploaded a video titled “BONUS_DUCKS.exe.avi.mov.mp3”, in which he parodies the event by changing his name and avatar to Merasmus. As March 9, 2015, the video has over 48,000 views. On December 14, 2014, YouTuber Dapper Dog uploaded a video title “BONUSDUCKS!”, featuring a remix of the voice line.

  • About

    Foxy, or more specifically Foxy the Pirate Fox, is an animatronic mascot[1] character resembling an anthropomorphic fox in a pirate costume and one of the four antagonists from the 2014 point-and-click horror game Five Nights at Freddy’s, who managed to gain a significant online following compared to the rest of the game’s cast. Foxy is unique to Five Nights at Freddy’s, as unlike the other animatronics he will hide for a while before coming to attack the player, making him a more surprising animatronic for first-time players.

    Origin

    The game Five Nights at Freddy’s was released on August 8, 2014 on Desura (and later on August 20, 2014 on steam after being greenlit)[2] featuring 3 animatronics, named Freddy, Chica and Bonnie, along with a secret one named Foxy, due to the secret nature of Foxy, only appearing once certain events were triggered, it gained infamy amongst Lets Players of the game due to his surprising nature. Foxy the Pirate Fox, as the name suggests, is an animatronic Pirate Fox, with reddish-brown, ripped fur. He has a hook for his right hand, and an eye patch he can lift up. On the second release of the game, Foxy made another appearance in a more damaged version along with a pattern change, the game also features a genderbent and more damaged version of Foxy called Mangle (or Toy Foxy by some fans).[3]

    Foxy´s first online appearance was in Markiplier’s gameplay video of the game where he is shown (at minute 16:10) running through a hallway at the player (later on being his characteristic by fans) and promptly letting out a high-pitched scream at the player which triggered the game over screen.



    Spread

    After the release of the game, Foxy became one of the fandom’s favourite characters, which quickly resulted in fanworks being made of the character. A popular trope associated with Foxy is he “Bite of ’87” which is referenced in the game as an event that occurred in 1987, where Foxy malfunctioned, resulting in a child getting their frontal lobe bitten off. This accident resulted in Foxy being put “out of order” indefinitely.

    On Aug 30, 2014, Youtube user Foxy The Pirate Fox uploaded a video of a comic featuring Foxy which gathered 1,768,012 views and 11,705 likes (Shown Below left), on November 29, 2014 user Vetario SFM uploaded a video featuring Foxy singing the song “You are a pirate”[5] from the tv children show “Lazy Town” made in Source Film Maker(Shown Below right) which gathered 2,983,487 views and 17,055 likes.



    On December 30, 2014 a remix of the song was uploaded by user NewBlu featuring a compilation of Foxy gifs and fanart, it gathered 529,534 views and 6,745 likes.(shown Below)



    Related Memes

    Fanart of Foxy was drawn, and many jokes have spawned from /vg/‘s 5N@F general thread, such as "I’m a good fox" spawning from a panel of a webcomic. This resulted in parodies of the webcomic.

    Other fandom jokes around Foxy consist of the “knot”, a NSFW joke referencing an erect canine penis. The knot has also been referenced in fanart, and has become an in-joke.

    An exploitable comic has also seen many variations (shown below)

  • 03/10/15--10:05: T-Rex's Short Arms
  • About

    T-Rex’s Short Arms, also known as T-Rex’s Tiny Arms, Sad T-Rex, or just T-Rex Arms, refers to a running joke, often illustrated, in which a tyrannosaurus rex can’t accomplish a human task that would otherwise be simple, due to the length of the creature’s arms in contrast with the large size of its body. The most common instances of the joke refer to the T-Rex not being able to masturbate or remove its party hat after a birthday party. Often times, this inability causes the T-Rex to become sad.

    Origin

    The first known instance of the joke online comes from the Apr 7, 2007 posting of a clip by the user “tallworm” from the 2007 Disney film Meet The Robinsons. In the clip, the character Tiny the Dinosaur chases Lewis Robinson into a corner, but can’t grab him because of his small arms. Tiny, voiced by Joe Mateo, says “I have a big head, and tiny arms. I’m just not sure how well this plan was thought through.”[1]



    In comics, the first appearance was a one-panel in The Far Side, the comic by Gary Larson, circa the mid 1980s.



    Spread

    In 2009, a comic called “Sad T-Rex” by Christian Blethen, was posted to /r/funny and received 148 votes (84% upvoted).[2]



    .

    In 2011, the comic was reposted first by Fuck_You_Im_Scottish, then by user wrong_game, netting 366 points (88% upvoted)[3] and 581 points (86% upvoted)[4] respectively.

    As the comic gained in popularity, people expanded the joke. On January 22, 2012, the Tumblr “T-Rex Trying” was founded by Hugh Murphy, devoted to comic sketches of a T-Rex attempting different tasks. Of the five images he posted that day, the two most popular received 31,182 notes[5] and 13,201 notes[6]. Murphy published a book of his drawings on October 7, 2014 [7].

    Since the popularity of these two examples, many other examples have been created by other webcomic authors, and many of these have been collected on Reddit or Tumblr.

    In 2014, the browser Chrome Canary featured a T-Rex with Short Arms on the “Can’t Connect to the Internet” page. While waiting for their connections to resume, users could click the dinosaur and play a running game offline [8].

    About

    Hyperdimension Neptunia is a series of JRPGs based on the Console Wars. Featuring Moe Anthopomorphisms of various consoles, handhelds, game development companies and aspects of piracy and gamer culture

    Origin

    In 2006, a company called Idea Factory collaborated with Compile Heart, a subsidiary, to release a Game called “Hyperdimension Neptunia” on the Playstation 3 Console. The plot involves Neptune (based on an unreleased SEGA product codenamed “Neptune”) a CPU (Console Patron Unit, one of 4 goddesses in the game’s setting) who lost her memories following a defeat that ousted her from Celestia from the other CPUs and sent her falling to the landmass below, called “Gamindustri”. There she meets Compa and IF (Representing the primary developers and trio go on an adventure to restore Neptune’s memories, meeting the other 3 CPUs, Noire, Vert and Blanc (Based on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii, respectively) as well as Arfoire (based on the R4 card for the Nintendo 3DS or the Majikon with her original Japanese name) , the game’s villain, Histoire, a powerful tome-fairy and ally to the goddesses, and other characters representing other game companies. The game was published by SEGA in Japan and Nippon Ichi Software in Western territories.

    The plot, which included several jokes and references to video games, and the appeal of the characters contributed to the game’s success, and in turn warranted a sequel.

    History



    Since the release of the first game, there had been 2 subsequent games with a fourth game coming out. The first of which, Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 introduced 4 new characters Nepgear, Uni, Rom and Ram, the sisters of 3 of the CPUs and based on the SEGA Game-Gear, Playstation Portable and Nintendo DS, respectively. as well as new supporting characters and villains. This game focuses more on software piracy, and has Arfoire’s impact on the story increased as a result.

    Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory returns to the Console Wars theme of the first game, but based around the 16-bit era. Several years after the end of the second game, Neptune is thrust into a parallel dimension that features a version of Gamindustri set in 1989. This game Introduces 2 new playable CPUs, Plutia (based on the Sega Genesis) and another one based on the Turbo-Grafix16, known as the PC Engine in Japan as well as having a third CPU as the primary antagonist, and based on the Atari 2600 (yes the 2600 of bad Pacman, ET, and Great Crash fame)

    Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory II is an upcoming installment to come out in Japan in April 23[1]. It features an Older Human counterpart of Neptune and a CPU based on the SEGA Dreamcast. as well a new transformations for the goddesses. The game will take place throughout three different and completely new dimensions.

    There are also several spin-offs games, including a Senran-Kagura like Beat-em-up, an Idol Sim game, mobile spinoffs, a Strategy RPG focusing on Noire, and remakes of the 3 currently released core games for the Playstation Vita (with the first one ported to Steam and the next installment on the way[2]) These games take place in alternate universes that are more or less the same as the originals, but exist seperately to account for the abundance of new characters added ever since the first game came out. There are also several manga adaptations of the games.

    Anime

    An anime adaptation was produced by David Entertainment in 2013. It’s plot and continuity are separate from those of the game, but elements of the 3 games released at the time of its airing are in the anime. It will be dubbed by Funimation[6]

Another voting contest was held recently from November 6th, 2014 to December 4th, 2014 on Compile Heart’s website that once again asked fans to vote for their favorite character, who would be cast as the next lead in another spinoff game[15]. This time around, Blanc took 1st place, which means we’ll be getting a title sometime in the future that centers around her[16].

  • About

    “Listen And Believe” is a phrase coined by internet personality Anita Sarkeesian during her Feminist Frequency panel at 2014 XOXO Festival in order to argue against the concept of victim blaming towards women and their experience with gender discrimination by inviting people to believe in what they have to say about it instead of flat out rejecting everything. The phrase has been taken over by GamerGate advocates mocking its seemingly preaching nature while criticizing the claim that every woman’s testimony has to be trusted on the issue no matter what.

    Origin

    Between September 11th and 14th, 2014, the annual art and technology conference XOXO Festival was held in Portland, Oregon. Among the various attendees was Anita Sarkeesian presenting a panel about her Feminist Frequency projet and her own experience dealing with online harassment. Sarkeesian ended her panel with the captions “Listen and Believe”, inviting her audience to take a first step and simply believe women’s accounts and experience of online harassment and sexism. A video of the whole conference was uploaded to the official XOXOYoutube channel on October 7th (shown below).

    Spread

    On September 13th, A Reddit thread was started on the KotaluInAction sub-reddit about the panel, discussing the arguments made by Sarkeesian. The same day, redditor hockeyday13 commented on the “Listen and Believe” segment, comparing the phrase to Georges Orwell’s novel 1984[1]. On September 14th, Kotaku writer and model Liana Kerzner made a video about the panel and its relationship with the GamerGate movement, asking Sarkeesian to “practice what [she] preach[es]” (shown below, left). Another video was made by Blistered Thumbs editor Micah Curtis discussing the quote and GamerGate that same day (shown below, right).

    On september 15th, Buzzfeed writer Cate Sevilla posted an article about the panel, supporting the phrase[2]. In the following months, several Sarkeesian detractors wrote opinion pieces about the panel mocking the phrase, such as Men’s Rights website A Voice For Men[3] and Lazy Gamer[4]. On November 20th 2014, Youtuber Sargon of Aakad uploaded a video criticizing it (shown below).

    On February 9th, 2015, Liana Kerzner wrote a followup article on Metal Eater[5] in which she states:

    For a long time I was afraid to publicly say what I really believed. Then Anita Sarkeesian encouraged the audience in an XOXO talk to “Listen and believe women” who claim harassment and abuse. Only women. That hit a nerve. I know three different men who have been falsely accused of abuse, and they had their lives dragged through the mud because too many people just took the woman’s word regarding what happened.
