    The Sabin Train Suplex is a moment in the game Final Fantasy VI for the SNES during which the game’s character Sabin performs a suplex on an enemy boss called the Phantom Train. The absurdity of Sabin performing a wrestling move on a moving train with succes and the battle animation of seeing him lift up a train in the air made the fight one of the most memorable moments within the game.

    Origin

    Final Fantasy VI[1] was first released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in April 1994, followed by a North-American release in October of the same year. In the game, the player comes across the Phantom Train,[2] a dungeon and similar named boss fight with a sentient train locomotive that carries the dead to the other side. During the fight, in which the party is running away from the still moving train, the monk Sabin[4] is able to perform his move “Suplex” (renamed “Meteor Strike”[3] in later versions) on the locomotive, lifting the entire train up into the air and slamming it into the ground. The fact that Sabin is able to perform this move on the train can be considered an oddity within the game,[10] as most large enemies and bosses are immune to the attack.

    the game was a game made with a group on deviantart in 2011,in 2012 attracted a player who’s account name was “DawsonShively2-0”. when he joined the chatroom he was greeted by the community,the next day however…ruined and scarred his life When he joined the next day,he tried “The battle System”. he made incorrect item combos. The community started to get angry at Dawson. soon enough Dawson made an angry journal about his experience, When Andre[2] saw Dawson’s journal, he banned him from the game (sadly this was his first time roleplaying.) Dawson then tried multiple ways of trying to get back in. Dawson soon gave up…however Dawson decided to make a RPG game of his own. This angered Andre to the bone, so he started making fun of his failures such as a game called “The Misadventures” and other deviantart group games similar to dafight. Dawson wanted to apologize for his rude actions, he defended himself by saying quotes and cusses, Andre soon then started to laugh at him more,saying and calling him “Retarded” and “Dumbass”. Dawson was then developing depression and emotional scars. Dawson then started to apologize even more. all rejected by Andre. Andre then kept making fun of him. On March 1st,2013 Dawson decided to go into rehabilitation for his depression. after he got out he made an account called “DepressedDawson” due to his nickname. his first ever page comment was from Andre saying " :D your a loser XD" but nothing beats this part… On December 16th, 2013(Dawson’s Birthday) Andre made a horrible comic strip of Dawson.

    a person was having an argument with Andre,
    in one of the comments said
    “because it was fun?”

    right after the person said

    “Then why did you make this?”

    Dawson was then never heard from again, but he was sent to another rehabilitation in January 2014. and got out February 2014
    This game still continues to bicker and make fun of him(sadly)

    Development
    over the time da-fight started to get more members who were blind about the truth, its sad enough to see it continue seeing that andre’s attitude is a harsh one to all people, they’re members started to join without knowing the story….the true story.

    Overview
    This game may look great and all but would you like to get emotional scars when you join this game? i think not, best way is to leave the group alone, all the creator wants is your attention,its best to just ignore. and for proof that he wants your attention, is this pic posted a few hours on facebook

    About

    Calvin and Hobbes Log Bridge Parodies are a series of fan art illustrations depicting two fictional characters crossing a creek over a log bridge, as originally seen in an iconic Calvin and Hobbes cartoon drawing by Bill Watterson.

    Origin

    The original drawing stems from Calvin and Hobbes, a daily comic strip illustrated by American cartoonist Bill Watterson that ran in more than 250 U.S. newspapers from 1985 to 1995.[4] During its decade-long run, Watterson developed a recurring visual motif in which Calvin and Hobbes are crossing a body of water over a makeshift bridge. This image originally shows up in 1988 Sunday comic collection: The Calvin and Hobbes Lazy Sunday Book.[13] A very similar version of this image is found in a comic strip published on April 19th, 1992,[3] and this “Log Bridge” instance being one of the most widely recognized iterations in the series.



    On October 27th, 2007, DeviantArt user spacecoyot[1] uploaded a historical fanart illustration of Renaissance thinkers John Calvin and Thomas Hobbes, after whom the cartoon characters were named, crossing a log just like in the original drawing.[2]



    Spread

    On April 1st, 2008, Three Men in a Tub[5], a sketch blog run by artists Ted Dawson and Wes Hargis, published a post titled “Calvin and Hobbes Goes Manga” with an illustration of the pair on the log reimagined as Japanese manga characters. The post announced Calvin and Hobbes would be released as a manga, but it was eventually revealed to be an April Fool’s Day prank.



    On March 4th, 2012 Threadless T-shirt artist CoolJohnny[6] submitted an illustration for consideration for a potential T-shirt printing titled “Bilbo and Gandalf” which featured the Lord of the Rings characters crossing the log. The submission was scored by over 500 people and received a T-shirt printing(shown above, right).

    On January 6th, 2014, Dorkly[7] published a post titled “30 Incredible Calvin and Hobbes Mashups” which included illustrations that replaced Calvin and Hobbes with characters from Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad.

    Notable Examples

    Calvin and Hobbes are often swapped out for characters in sci-fi and fantasy movies and television shows including Matthew Waite’s[8]Batman and Breaking Bad versions, Joel Watson’s Walking Dead take, Oliviero’s[10]Pokemon mash-up, iamleche[11]Adventure Time version, and SimonDiff’s[12] Last of Us take.
