 "If a man yells loud enough, he can do anything!"

Straight from the mouth of a bee with big eyebrows comes a tale of courage, friendship, and the kind of silliness that will have you rolling on the floor! Will Giygas prevail or will the world's last hope band together and strike this intergalactic foe down? It all rests...upon the Chosen Four!

The Chosen Four is a fancomic based on the Nintendo video game Earthbound. It is posted at Starmen.net by Darrow and is currently over 600 pages. The comic can be found and read here. Also, the forum thread where the comic is originally posted by the author is quite entertaining in its own right.


This series contains examples of:

  • Adaptation Expansion
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: Subverted by Ness, who works up the courage after a while, but he then stutters and Paula loudly interrupts him and plays it straight.
  • Anti-Villain: Shrooom!, an Adorkable Shrinking Violet. He even pulls a Heel Face Turn when he's defeated, and is left alive as a result.
    • Thunder and Storm. They only wanted to make people laugh, a desire that was twisted and warped by Giygas. They're also left alive, albeit heavily injured.
  • Arc Words: "If a man yells loud enough, he can do anything!"
    • Parodied later with, "If a man dances hard enough, he can disco anywhere!"
  • Art Evolution: This is what it used to look like. This is what it looks like now.
  • Battle Aura: Ness sometimes gets one of these. At least once, he triggers it just to scare monkeys. No, seriously.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Paula. Learned the hard way by Pokey and the Jerkass delivery man in Threed, among others (including, of course, Giygas' minions).
  • Berserk Button: Don't take Ness's hat.
  • Bishie Sparkle: Venus. A lighting effect, or maybe she's just that good.
    • Gorgeous later shows off some of those sparkles. Lucky tells the heroes he got them from Venus.
  • Bishounen: Ninten. No, seriously.
  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: Thunder and Storm.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Heck, there's practically no fourth wall! One of the funniest examples of this is when Paula steals a baby picture of Ness from his second Your Sanctuary.

 Ness: With the melody recorded I guess we should move on, then! It's a good thing the inner images only appear to me, though, otherwise... Hey! You're not supposed to see this! How did you even do that??

Paula: Why bother worrying about logic at this point of the story? Help me carry this home so I can hang it in my room!

 Jeff: Well, I should probably go before you flood this panel with bubbles.
