The Nintendo Power is a reference to a challenge that was put out to beat the game with four white mages, Black Mage was seen reading it while Fighter was getting beat up by the first giant they encountered stating that the four white mages party would never work. Ever since the quest got under way White Mage flat out said she was going to just follow the Light warriors around so they could take care of the monsters on the way to destroy Chaos, which was the goal of her Order of White Mages. Granted, a LOT of this stuff was done near the begining of the comic, Black Belt was still alive and well and they hadn't even mentioned the elemental orbs yet.

All of your theories are obviously wrong. Dragoon will come back on the golden chocobo and Black Mage will get credit for killing Chaos with his sneezedoken. King Steve will continue on an endless cycle of giving away the kingdom to inanimate objects before "killing" them. Black Mage will also show his insensitivity to timelines and kill the Onion Kid. White Mage will be pregnant (the father is anyone's guess) and will give up her vows so she can hammer at will with top priority.

And Brian will be the true final boss (anybody who's played Dink Smallwood knows the best final battle is fighting the creator.) And Red Mage's plan to kill him will be so elaborate and stupid that reality will start to tear until one of the "rip rifts" hits Brian, after leveling half of the world.

And somehow, it fits the main characters. They all seem like they have an attention span of five seconds, and the fact the comic meanders and goes off on tangents and asides and that everything seems to be taking one step forward, two steps back and one to the side, fits them perfectly. It's what these guys would do.
It's approaching 9 years now.

I'm tiring of this. The jokes, while still funny, aren't that fresh anymore.

Brian needs to stop while he's still in Calvin and Hobbes territory, before it veers into undead zombie Garfield/Peanuts range. I hope it's nearing that, instead of just dragging this on and on.

Anyway, registered after about 8 years of reading, just to say that.

The different backgrounds are probably the most notable.
All that and the humor kinda changes along the way, or it seems that way to to me.

Just no. I think you have a very difficult time of letting go. It's been 9 years and the final battle's been fought. Get ready for the epilogue of epilogues and be ready to move on.

Maybe it will go in the direction of a Atomic Robo/Marx Brothers plot features and get better. Just sayin'.

It's 8-bit theater. How can I? I actually think that ending 8-bit is bad for the country. What if it demoralizes the troops in Afghanistan? What if it sabotages our national defenses because the key people are demoralized? I don't want the terrorists to win, especially if it's caused by that.
