Why is it every time I go to a race a fight breaks out.

Well, if you stop throwing the first punch…

Pft, he just flat out tells them they need a new strategy to beat him.

Hey, at least it's better than outright telling his opponent how to beat him like he did in SM64DS.

Well, it's half past Word O'clock and I have a minimum safe distance to run to. Bye!

Shrapnel seems to enjoy the Boss Banter.
I think Go and Palma's best bet is to go for the legs; those pants look to be hiding something!

Could they be hiding... LEGS?! :P

True story, one of Shrapnel's early designs featured tank treads

Seems like Shrapnel is channeling Thrive with his monologues and interest in Palma. Or maybe the supervillain types just love to hear themselves talk.
the_unchosen_one 7th Jul 2012, 8:30 PM edit delete reply
Thrive was a military experiment gone wrong. Boss Birdo was an outlaw, and cared more about Sasha. Shrapnel was a military commander, now working with possible government agents. I think it seems likely there's something we don't know about Palma yet that the big guys do

They should break off his shrapnel crown making his shrapnel kingly might to become just a pile of shrapnel.
That guy 7th Jul 2012, 4:12 PM edit delete reply
Try flaming his pants.
Super Mariachi Bros. 7th Jul 2012, 4:43 PM edit delete reply
The last thing I want to see is Shrapnel in hot pants.
the_unchosen_one 7th Jul 2012, 8:23 PM edit delete reply
Are you sure? Because I think Wario in hot pants would be worse
Super Mariachi Bros. 7th Jul 2012, 9:55 PM edit delete reply
Yeah... that WOULD be pretty awful.

If he ever had to show up, I'd hope it'd be as part of a battle that was more of a background fight with Luigi or Mario... one where neither combatant had paid any attention to the Chainless at all; Martello and the crew would just be unlucky. Naturally, whatever hijinks the crew are getting up to would have to stop abruptly as they got out of Dodge.

Check out what I found! This is why I love Google.

With the conversation that was going on, I'm slightly concerned about what you may have typed to find this picture... And the other pictures that may have come along with it
Super Mariachi Bros. 8th Jul 2012, 1:53 AM edit delete reply
Hardyhar-har. I just looked up Mario vs. Wario, and it was on the top of the list.

The old "I'm not the bad guy, I'm on your side!" Trick?
I'm guessing he's the distraction, not the main event this time though.

Also, Palma Badassery! Doesn't seem to be achieving much at the moment, but we shall see about that!

There was a Taco Bell commercial a while back, where they were in a court room. The lawyer said "Great taste and fullness from a value menu. I do beleive I rest my case!"

Any time the King Bo-Bomb speaks, I sorta imagine him having that lawyer's voice.
the_unchosen_one 7th Jul 2012, 9:14 PM edit delete reply
He's supposed to be more along the lines of a Southern gentleman. I'm waiting for him to start adding like to the end of adjectives, so he'd sound a bit more properlike. Also, he needs to start opening sentences with "I do declare"
Guest 7th Jul 2012, 10:48 PM edit delete reply
I do declare that would be coollike.

...

That didn't work as well as i'd hoped... Coollike reminds me of something but I can't think what...

Actually, I just realized there was an easier reference for his voice:

Foghorn Leghorn.
the_unchosen_one 7th Jul 2012, 9:15 PM edit delete reply
He said his head/torso joints were readjusted... That means... GO FOR THE KNEES! I used to be a King like you, until I took a fireball to the knee

Got bored, and started looking at random pages. Found this Morg's "Author's Comments" from page 72, near the end of chapter 2, right before Boss Birdo is finished off.

"Major payoff is on the way, though, and the end of this chapter is going to be the start of something much, much bigger."

Anyone else think we're not even close to as big as it's going to get?
guest 8th Jul 2012, 6:45 PM edit delete reply
Been reading off and on, but Shrapnel doesn't seem too bad a guy. And everything he did in the past was when he had been working for the army. Now that he's been broken down and rebuilt, is Shrapnel going to join the Chainless?
guest 8th Jul 2012, 6:47 PM edit delete reply
Haha. Perhaps it would have been better to say: Would he be able to be convinced to join the Chainless?
Super Mariachi Bros. 9th Jul 2012, 12:44 AM edit delete reply
I have a feeling Martello'd be just a little be reticent about allowing a giant, explosive former opponent on as part of her crew.
DemonBlood 9th Jul 2012, 9:39 AM edit delete reply
But it would be so cool!

My clock's running a bit slow, I'm only words past words o'clock over here.

And what does he mean "cheap tricks"? Their previous tricks were rather pricey.
the_unchosen_one 9th Jul 2012, 2:36 PM edit delete reply
I think he means that last time, rather than actually defeating him by their own power, they made him blow up

I find it creepy that Shrapnel is being so civil to the very lady he piledived not too long ago.

She shouldn't take it personally. After all, it was just business. :P

Morg made us all waffles!
And you missed out :(

They were delicious.

I tried to destroy the planet, but was taught the true meaning of your human friendship instead.
Also yes, the waffles were pretty good.
the_unchosen_one 10th Jul 2012, 7:23 PM edit delete reply
It was a team effort on the teaching. And waffles made by anyone else have been ruined for me

Lessee, i died like 20 times.
in a row.
...I got better.

but the most shocking news is...


VG cats updated! =P

Yeah, the update was they took a comic DOWN

20 times? Did you travel to Australia or something? :P

I'm just as surprised at that as you are

I LOVE this villian! He is polite, well spoken, hits like a run-a-way freight train, pretty smart, AND he can hand out beatings WHILE MONOLOGING! Even Doc Doom has to pause the fight while doing his monolog but this guy? Notta Chance.

You know, this is the only webcomic that I have dreams about.

Can I take this image of Shrapnel and post it all over the internet when talking to my wordy friends? I'm sure they'll ask ;) (Side note: the clock, obviously.)
