Tropes

  • Actor Allusion:

  • Black Comedy: TBD
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Fluke is this.
  • Escaped from the Lab: Basically, the beginning of the game showed Fluke escaping.
  • Evil Knockoff: Nexus qualifies as one, since he was made to resemble Fluke, therefore, becoming his nemesis.
  • Freak Lab Accident: Fluke.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Just like other WBIE, there has been adult jokes here and there. For example...
    • Christoph Dumas. Look at his last name. Now, add a "B" and a second "S"...
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Erad and Purge.
  • Jerkass: Christoph Dumas.
  • Mad Scientist: Lena Austin.
  • Mega-Microbes: Since Fluke and the other virus/bacteria-like creatures are basically modeled after... well, viruses and bacteria, they would count as this.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Anna Lois is considered to be a pretty hot character.
  • Official Couple: Anna and Luke, starting in New Breed.
  • Private Detective: Anna Lois.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: Daisy is this as she is shown stalking Anna since she is a huge fan of private detectives.

Trivia

  • Creator's Favorite: In an interview, Diane stated that her favorite character of the franchise is... well, Fluke himself.
  • Dawson Casting: The young adults in this are voiced by full-grown adults.
  • Fan Nickname: TBD
  • Playing Against Type: Mark Hamill as Fluke, the primary source of comic relief, especially considering he's better known for playing heroes like Luke Skywalker and Skips and villains like the Joker and Fire Lord Ozai.
  • Rule 34 - Creator Reactions: Diane has admitted to have seen "icky stuff" across the internet featuring her characters, mainly Anna. She limited to reply "nothing against it, but it sorta weirds me out. But hey, it's the Internet after all and I've seen worse than that".
    • When she discovered that Stella McDonnell did some, she drew a short comic with Charlotte doing "secret stuff". She also added a comment saying "Stella, I know it's your stuff, but couldn't you keep them private?".
  • What Could Have Been:
    • While Fluke was in production, Diane tweeted that she originally planned Anna to be either a regular college student or a fry cook at a fast food restaurant.
      • Before that, Fluke was intended to be an evil alien who wants to take over his own planet, but has to deal with his rivals who also want to take it over. However, those plans were later scrapped because Diane thought it would be too similar to Invader Zim.
    • Diane once tweeted that she once considered voicing Anna Lois and Dr. Lena, before Warner Bros. insisted on professional voice actors for both of them.

WMG

These are fan theories for Fluke.

  • Fluke (excluding Nexus) wasn't the only attempt to create an artificial creature.
    • This ended up being true, as it has revealed in The Lost Lab that there are other artificial creatures like Fluke in a lab that was abandoned after an incident caused by Erad and Purge.
