Spark the Electric Jester Hatedom
Spark the Electric Jester is an action-platform video game developed and published by Brazilian studio Feperd Games. After being funded through Kickstarter, the game was released in 2017 for Microsoft Windows. Primarily developed by Felipe Daneluz, the creator of the Sonic: Before the Sequel, Sonic: After the Sequel, and Sonic Chrono Adventure fangames, the game incorporates elements from the Sonic the Hedgehog, Mega Man X, and Kirby series. The game tells the story of Spark, a former circus performer with electric abilities, as he tries to hunt down the robotic clone who replaced him, Fark. This game was praised for its gameplay and soundtrack, but it developed a toxic hatedom.
Why They're Electrically Toxic
- They think that Spark the Electric Jester is a reskin of Lake Feperd’s previous Sonic fangame’s like Sonic Chrono Adventure when Spark the Electric Jester also has elements that are inspired by Mega Man X, Kirby and Most Importantly, The Main Sonic Games , not just the fan games. That's almost as stupid as saying Undertale is a reskin/ripoff of Earthbound.
- They call the game stupid nicknames such as Poor Man's Sonic or Spark the Electric Hustler which is rather ridiculous. They also make fun of the titular character by calling him a Sonic and Kirby fusion.
- They even used Ristar to make fun of the main character.
- Some of them could be part of the Sonic the Hedgehog Fandom since this game is mostly inspired by the Sonic games. They can also be part of the Freedom Planet Fandom as well.
- If you were to defend this game, there would be a chance that they could bully you.
- They complain about the game's overall presentation as soon as the game got released. Really now, just because certain problems occurred during the game does not mean that the game is bad in general. Besides, no one is perfect.
- They dislike the game just because of how Spark's rival being named Fark thinking that "it's an awful name for a rival character" or "not edgy". Really now, do you really need rival characters to be overly edgy? In fact, if a video game character becomes over-edgy, the results would not be positive. One example would be Infinite from Sonic Forces who all he does is being underutilized and do edgy talking.
- Some would go as far as trying to not recommend or forbid anyone to play the game. Now listen here, if they would find the game interesting to them, please leave them alone because they have the choice if they want to play the game.
- Irony: They dislike Spark the Electric Jester for being a "poor man's Sonic" yet they don't seem to realize that some of them would make some horrible fan-made Sonic games such as Sonic World, Project X : Love Potion Disaster (This one features Sonic characters), Sonic for Beginners, or Elias Epic: Revival Mix (an indie game and a Sonic fangame). So who's being the "poor man's Sonic" now?
- Hypocrisy: They hate the game just because it was inspired by Sonic yet they like games like Freedom Planet which was also inspired by Sonic.
- The Fandom became even more toxic when the game got a sequel, Spark The Electric Jester 2.
- They are not very widespread since they are mostly overshadowed by the fandom (the fandom is actually mostly healthy) to be honest with you.
- They may have a point about the performance in the actual game.
- Some can tolerate positive viewpoints about the game.
- Some still understand that this game is heavily-inspired by the Sonic games.
