Sonichu is a webcomic series created by infamous vlogger and trolling victim Chris-Chan . Its storyline initally revolved around adventures of eponymous Electric Hedgehog Pokemon (fusion of Pikachu and Sonic the Hedgehog) and was not that much of a trollbait before it turned into author’s ‘enhanced’ (with superpowers and mystical prophecies) autobiography.
Content of the comics
Sonichu, as many unsuccesful webcomics, was characterized by bad drawing and unoriginal (most of it was ‘borrowed’ from Pokemon, Sonic, Dragon Ball and Excel Saga while certain dialogues were taken directly from countless other sources), chaotic story. It was widely ignored before Chris’ videoblog and personal life gained internet infamy and comics departed from their original storyline to describe Sonichu’s sex life (they’ve contained explicit content, while Chris kept saying that they are meant for children) and author’s own, personal problems (mostly connected with unability to find ‘a boyfriend-free girlfriend’). Since Sonichu 8, war against trolls became one of the most important arcs of Sonichu. It ended in Sonichu 10, where main characters violently murdered the trolls.
Chris-Chan in Sonichu
Paradoxically, Sonichu is not the main character of the series. Since Sonichu 2 (actually the third issue, first was Sonichu 0), most of its story focused on Chris. The author portrayed himself as superhuman, extremely intelligent, blessed by God (literally) major of CWCville (which is supposed to be utopia, though while judged by objective standards is an extreme case of totalitarian communism).
Attack of the Trolls
Around 2007, Sonichu and Chris were discovered by trolls, who riddiculed both the comics and Chris’ behaviour. This was soon followed by an Encyclopedia Dramatica article. Upon its discovery, Christian attempted to convince ED to remove the page. When this failed, he began vandalizing parts of the article in attempt to better his image. He also began to post pornographic artwork of his own creations as a means to protest against it. While this artwork mostly portrayed Sonichu characters, there was one in particular that portrayed him performing a sexual act with a friend from his real life (which later resulted in said friend breaking off contact from him). This led to extensive trolling by ED and 4chan (especially /b/ and /v/). As the time passed, the trolling community became obssesive about ruining Chris-chan’s life (or rather those parts of his life he couldn’t ruin himself) which resulted in its isolation from the rest of the internet community.
During the early years of CWC trolling (before the trolls devoted their lives to follow every step made by Chris and post thousands of videos with CWC’s face photoshopped onto Metal Gear Solid cutscenes), many parodies were created. The most notable included:
*Simonchu – troll fiction its main character was turned into a female by Chris and included in Sonichu, which resulted in even bigger conflict between Evan (Simonchu’s creator and Chris)
*Asperchu – troll fiction, presenting Sonichu’s story in non-idealized way
*’pickle’ fanart – drawings sent to Chris by e-mail, portraying Rosechu (Sonichu’s girlfriend) as hermaphrodite; Chris responded to it angrily, using later parodied sentences like ‘she is a girl, she does not have a pickle’ or ‘draw her masturbating and squirting’
*The Girl Who Brought Down The World – story by Vivian Gee (before she became a dedicated troll), dystopian fiction realistically depicting ‘what if CWCville was true’; the story was meant to show Chris what he was doing wrong, but was probably never read by him
In addition to the infamous Encyclopedia Dramatica article, Sonichu’s and Christian’s “Popularity” has reached to the extent that there are at least two wikis ( Asperpedia and CWCki), and a TV Tropes page.
