Gardevoir becoming half Fairy derailed a lot of potential gags for her being disproportionately scared of bugs or darkness- and I can't replace those with her being scared of Steel or Poison because EVERYONE is scared of being poisoned or stabbed. Fortunately, I can make other jokes.

Creds to Box and 404 for adding their own little touches like Roll's hand phone and glowing eyes.

We could always make fun of dragons.

Hey.
Hey guess what happened to me this weekend, huh, I GOT F***ING SICK.

Okay it's not that bad, the only real problem is that my heads full of snot so my brain hurts and I can't breath.

Colors, right. The skulltulas were kinda a problem because they've got those N64 gradient colors so I tried my best to reproduce them but they look kinda horrible close up. Fortunately you can't see all the problems with the legs when it's scaled out this far.
The eye thing was probably a subconscious result of the Mega Man trailer for Smash 4, but mostly because she's a robot and every robot needs glowing eyes.

Okay...is it just me or does Roll get more adorable the more angry she is? I mean, she probably shouldn't be this mad...BUT IT WAS SO CUTE TO DRAW.

Besides that, I thought the hand phone was hilarious. Every robot should have one.

Also, Box did AWESOME on the colors for this one. Great job! I love the glowing eyes.

I just want to come back to this comic for a second, not because it's probably my favorite, but because I JUST now got the title.

She probably ought to use a Thunderbolt TM just for these situations.

Also, Roll's reactions are perfect. In the words of another comic: "Wake me up [only] if I'm on fire."

Roll, just because certain attacks are only normal effectiveness doesn't mean they can't kill/grevously injure the victim. And if you're that worried about too little power, then turn off the eye glow!

I do like the hand phone. That's seriously awesome.

Hmm, from her mega form ability Pixilate, I THINK Gardevoir's supposed to use all those voice moves now instead of just psychic.

She's being rather calm considering the skulltulas. Skulltulas in the bathroom? *shudder*

You can't do the scared of bugs/darkness thing anymore, but I bet she's still scared of ghosts...
Also, since Roll is a robot, would that make her Steel? That could strain their friendship a tiny bit (but not as much as waking her up at two in the morning.)

Roll is meant to be as human as possible so I'm betting her skin is all advanced synthetics. Her more industrial and/or combat based brothers... Well, we'll see.
