|Why wear clothes when you got fur, indeed?|
Walk for a thousand miles down this road
I don't know where it's taking me
I feel I must carry on
So that I can justify my everything
Past is what, past is what will make us true
Be alright, be alright, 'cause I'll be me
'Cause I know, 'cause I know that I'll prove myself
In the end, I will be standing here...
All my life, I've been so wrong
This is the path I have to take
Shan't go back to who I was
This is my time to break away!

The rebooted Super/Lux Klonoa universe. A Klonoa/Undertale/MLP:FiM crossover universe, with Chrono Trigger's Lavos as the current main antagonist.
Current fic: "All My Life"
After getting hurled out of Equestria by the alien being known as Lavos, Rainbow Dash wakes up to find herself lying on a bed in an unknown house: that of Klonoa's. Unable to move due to her wing being broken (again), Dash then learns that Klonoa has a Super form of his own. Klonoa then proceeds to tell her his life story, with the revelation that he is Asriel Dreemurr from a thousand years ago.
Meanwhile, Asriel's mother, the immortal boss monster Toriel, is learning that her long-lost son may be back from the dead...
The concept formerly known as Super Klonoa, now known as Lux Klonoa. "Lux" is the Latin word for "light."
The Dreamer of Light and the Soul of the Wind.
My fanonical (and NOT an OC) concept of a badass transformation for Klonoa. The general super transformation concept was originally made by a friend of mine back in 2003 as a joke, parodying the Super Saiyans of Dragon Ball. It continued to be a joke, until two years later, I adopted it as my own for one of my fanfics at the time, concluding that the only way for Klonoa to defeat the antagonist of the fic was to go super. And mind you, it wasn’t merely a “pulling shit out of my ass” maneuver or a Deus Ex Machina at all. It was heavily hinted throughout the fic that he had some hidden power lying inside of him.
And that power was the energy of the Chaos Emeralds. Back then, in my first two (three if you count me rebooting the first) fic universes (“Super Klonoa Unleashed” was one of them), they were Sonic/Klonoa crossovers. And even when I redesigned Super Klonoa’s appearance from golden yellow with blue eyes to pure white with red eyes in 2011, he still used the power of the Chaos Emeralds (much like how Super Rainbow Dash first used them in the same year before she was rebooted to have the Soul of Harmony inside of her).
But now, no longer. I’ve moved him away from Sonic, due to Sonic’s bad reputation and him being the Internet’s biggest punching bag. I do not wish to be associated with him at all, and I have had seven years of drama with the Klonoa fanbase (who happen to hate Sonic). So with these, again, I have made the decision to reboot Super Klonoa, now known as Lux Klonoa.
Yes, Klonoa is still unclothed like a Sonic character, and yes, his Lux form still is Sonic-esque. But those two things aren’t exclusive to Sonic. I shall point to stuff like the Looney Tunes for unclothed animal characters and the big-ass wide collection of superheroes for Super forms. And Dragon Ball, since it’s nowhere near as hated as Sonic is currently. As I’ve always said since a certain incident, “Nothing is original. Everything is permitted.”
Now, again, no longer powered by the Chaos Emeralds, Lux Klonoa's new origin is now part of a crossover with 2015’s Internet phenomenon: the indie RPG, Undertale.
In the new fic universe, “The Soul of the Wind,” Klonoa is the reincarnation of Asriel Dreemurr, who was the original Dream Traveler and the Dreamer of Light, of which Asriel became a while after Frisk saved him by giving him their own soul and their determination as a result. With this determination inside of him (barring the ability to reset the timeline) and being appointed by the god of dreams, Asriel was able to vanquish many nightmares in the dream dimension, through either pacifism or erasing them outright because they were absolutely irredeemable. Until later, he died as a sacrifice to save the world. Asriel’s body had turned into dust, but his determined soul, with all the power and skills he had gained still in it, had persisted, resting in the hands of the god of dreams. A thousand years later, due to a resurgence of nightmares in the dream dimension, the god of dreams decided to reincarnate Asriel in a new body: that of a long-eared cat that had yet to be born in a village called Breezegale.
At first, Klonoa doesn’t remember being Asriel or why he is fated to be the Dream Traveler, being even more confused at the whole “legendary all-powerful Dreamer of Light” thing whose body was supposed to be white as light itself and with determined red eyes. Traits which he lacked except for his ears, face, hands, and feet. But when Klonoa finally remembers and unlocks his powers during the battle with a remnant of Asriel’s darkness:
-His black fur goes pure white and his eyes go ruby red. The lines on his ears remain.
-His hair bangs spike upward.
All of which resembles his old self, along with the unclothed nature that his old self was also in.
As shown above this widget, Lux Klonoa’s unofficial theme is “All My Life” from Gran Turismo 6, with “5OUL ON D!SPLAY” being secondary.

The concept and design of this form may be made up by me, but the overall character still belongs to them. It was not anywhere near difficult to design such a transformation anyway, and as such, they could easily design him like this if they wanted to.
So as far as I understand, Namco Bandai (and all related affiliates) is well within their legal rights to use such a concept if they wish. I cannot exactly sue them over such a commonly-used concept of a form as well as many design aspects of him that are common as well. Unless their legal system goes deeper than I can understand, they are free to claim ownership of it as they wish.
Klonoa, in one of his main appearances in the "Soul of the Wind" universe. He will switch between this and his blue outfit every now and then, taking the latter off to either cool off, be his natural furry self, or to transform into Lux Klonoa.
Just his hat, collar, gloves, and shoes on. Unlike in official material and especially in "Door to Phantomile," he does not wear shorts or any form of pants at all. He is literally naked, but furred like a classic cartoon character.
Klonoa's soul, and his original self and body in the "Soul of the Wind" universe, one thousand years ago.
After the True Pacifist events of Undertale, in order to save Asriel from becoming Flowey again, Frisk ultimately sacrificed himself, giving Asriel his soul and enabling him to live a normal life again with Frisk's memories and persona taking an eternal sleep within the soul. Sometime after Frisk's sacrifice, Asriel then went on to become the Dream Traveler and the legendary Dreamer of Light. A title he gained and embraced after people saw his white furry body when his clothes got destroyed in a battle. From that point on, he wore only a red hanging scarf and a pair of red bracelets on his wrists and feet. Like his future self Klonoa, Asriel is literally naked, but furred.

Eyes go shut
Into thin air leaving no trace
Why don't you just save your breath?
All of your words feel like a jail
That blocks the sun and makes me stale
Not enough gold in all the world
So why have I surrendered
To your abusive ways
The cracks have opened up to the core
Is there anywhere to go from here now?
Sick with the lies consuming our souls...
Give me one reason to take the breath we breathe for granted
Hold it in so long that you forget to say
Give me one reason to remain confined within the fences
Here with you and my soul on display...
Life is too precious to waste...

The Destined Flame and Soul of Harmony, in "Harmonic Spectrum."
My fanonical (and NOT an OC, btw) concept of an uber-powered transformation for Rainbow Dash. Originally spawned out of my head in summer 2011 (and predating Hasbro's Rainbow Power) as a need to further match Sonic the Hedgehog, as the two of them are extremely similar to each other.
Super Rainbow Dash originally appeared in two of the fanfics in my old Super Klonoa universe, at first using the seven Chaos Emeralds from the Sonic franchise to transform. However, because the Sonic franchise's reputation had dropped in recent years with a series of badly developed games, because Equestria Daily's visitors and pre-readers REALLY don't take kindly to Sonic or anything relating to him such as the Chaos Emeralds appearing on the site at all, and due to some very interesting theories I've heard on Rainbow Dash (see them here: super-rainbow-dash-z.deviantar…), I decided to retcon those two fics and had, since 2012, been working on a fic that has her transforming through the Elements of Harmony instead, basing it on those same theories, that'll also hopefully meet EqD's high quality standards as well (this has since been abandoned, however, since EqD's pre-reading policy has become unfavorable). The fic is titled "Harmonic Spectrum."
You can read the complete rough draft version of the fic on my gallery here, or the improved version on my FiMFiction page: www.fimfiction.net/story/22568…
As seen in this art collection of her and in "HS," the appearance of her transformation is as follows:
-A pure white coat with ruby red eyes. (required) She basically becomes an albino, and was based off of Lux Klonoa, who in turn was inspired by the various albino characters in various anime such as Soul Eater and Fullmetal Alchemist.
-A waving, rising, flaming rainbow mane and tail that emits embers from them (or simply a spiked-up rainbow mane, if artists so choose). (required) Inspired by Twilight Sparkle's enraged burning form and the Super Saiyans of DBZ as well as Super Sonic (especially if artists choose the spiked-up rainbow mane instead of the waving flame and embers, or a combination of both. Depends, really).
- The cloud part of her cutie mark changes from white to storm grey. (required) Since the vector of her by GeoNine, artists have begun to do the same afterwards, by changing the cloud part of it to storm grey in order to avoid blending in with her white coat. Character-wise, by making it storm grey, it symbolizes the great, sheer, Harmonic power that is wildly swirling within Super Dash.
-The Element of Loyalty necklace on. (optional) Since I originally made her transform through the Chaos Emeralds, I was at first going to go without it. But then, I got a suggestion from someone to include it and it stuck ever since. Now in "Harmonic Spectrum" and onwards, the true hidden potential of the Elements of Harmony gets unlocked by Dash, and so the Harmonic energy from the other necklaces and the Crown of Magic gets siphoned into her own necklace and into herself as well, siphoning enough to make her transform.
-Large pegasus wings. (optional) Inspired by fanart depicting normal Dash with large wings instead of her normal small ones. Combined with her being white, it certainly makes her look almost angelic, no?
The styling of the flames/mane and the size of the wings may vary in artwork of her, as well as the exact shade of white.
As shown on the poster above, my personal unofficial theme for Super Rainbow Dash is "5OUL ON D!SPLAY" from Gran Turismo 5.

The design of her Super form may be made up by me, but the overall character still belongs to them. It was not anywhere near difficult to design such a transformation anyway, and as such, they could easily design her like this if they wanted to.
So as far as I understand, Hasbro is well within their legal rights to use such a concept if they wish. I cannot exactly sue them over such a commonly-used concept of a Super form as well as many design aspects of her that are common as well. Unless their legal system goes deeper than I can understand, they are free to claim ownership of it as they wish.

Q: Can I use your concepts of Super Rainbow Dash and/or Lux Klonoa? Pretty pleeeeease? *puppy dog eyes*
A: There's no need to ask me at all. Feel free to use them as you wish, and you don't even have to credit me at all unless you want to. Just do not claim them as your own, as they still belong to Hasbro and Namco Bandai.
Q: Regarding your unclothed Klonoa/Lux Klonoa/Asriel concepts here, when I request or commission art of them, do you mind if they're drawn in a more realistic, more humanoid style?
A: I put up this question because earlier, a friend of mine had pretty much threatened to stop being generous because I didn't like what the artist that he commissioned had drawn, which had made them pretty pissed off towards me. So I had no choice but to fave the pic to make them both happy again.
The truth is, I find such realistic art of Klonoa/Asriel to be really, really cringeworthy. I mean, both characters are three-foot-tall animal cartoon characters. Unless Asriel is his adult God of Hyperdeath self, it's really unfitting to see both characters with man breasts, hips, etc., IMHO. =/
So please don't make the same mistake as the aforementioned artist did. I should've put this up earlier because if I did, I wouldn't be receiving these threats from a fellow friend that I recently value. =/
From now on, if I see anymore realistic art of them, I will say nothing of it and ignore it to avoid pissing anybody off. And given my long history of being involved in drama, pissing anyone off, especially if they're friends, is sorely the last thing I want to do here.
Q: So why is he "Lux" Klonoa now? Didn't he used to be called Super Klonoa?
A: Yeah, he used to be called that up until 2016. The reason I changed it is because I didn't want the concept to be associated with Sonic anymore. That, and some fans agreed on that front that the name reminded them too much of Sonic, so I gave him a more unique name. Given the Final Fantasy franchise's strong tradition of using the Latin language to name nearly everything in their games, I decided to do the same: pick out a word more suitable for this white-furred transformation of Klonoa. I Googled the Latin word for light, and it gave me "lux."
And plus, I think Namco and their affiliates are heading down this direction as well anyway, given the title of their webcomic, "Klonoa: Dream Traveler of Noctis Sol," and that there is a character named Tenebrae in it, being Latin for darkness.
Fun tidbit, btw: I could've chosen to derive from any other language, and I did consider that. There were words for light like, "Argi," "Solus, "and "Claro." But given how Final Fantasy makes the Latin language sound epic and fun, I ultimately went with it. XD
As for Super Rainbow Dash, well, it's too late for me to rename her as she is widely known at this point, unlike Lux Klonoa (and Klonoa in general). If I had the chance, though, I'd have renamed her to simply "Harmonic Rainbow Dash."
And as for why I'm trying to get away from Sonic, see the below question.
Q: What happened to all of the Sonic stuff on your gallery and favorites? Your art groups? Are you still a Sonic fan, even?
A: Due to Sonic, both the character and the franchise as a whole, being continuously shitted upon as the Internet's biggest punching bag, something that even SEGA themselves decided to embrace, no, I'm not a Sonic fan anymore. I thought that after the success of both Colors and Generations, the franchise would be back to the way it was before Shadow and Sonic '06. But with the mediocre release of Lost World and the catastrophic failure of Boom, things quickly fell back down again. And I'm sick of it. That, and with how the Sonic fanbase continues to be regarded as the worst fanbase in the world with a bunch of strange people in it, well, I don't want to be suddenly thrown in with the rest of them when I have done nothing to deserve it. Save for my long history of causing unnecessary drama, that is. But that's another reason why I'm distancing myself from Sonic, as I was once really obsessed with seeing both Sonic and Klonoa together in a game.
Super Rainbow Dash and unclothed/Lux Klonoa may have been inspired by Sonic in the first place, but that's it. They are both no longer crossovers with Sonic. And besides, Sonic didn't exactly invent the things that I love anyway. That honor goes to Felix the Cat for the unclothed cartoon animal trope and Dragon Ball for the Super form trope. In other words, Sonic merely made me love those two tropes, and I learned to love them without him.
As for me going to Sonic artists for Klonoa, it's because I feel that they're the only ones who can draw him properly. It does NOT mean that I'm secretly still a Sonic fan.
Q: I'm a Garry's Mod/Source Filmmaker user. Is there a model for Super Dash that I could use?
A: Yes, there is one by RainbineDashie on my gallery:
Q: Any plans to go. Even. Further. Beyoooond?! (I.e. a Hyper Rainbow Dash)
A: Other than some existing animations here, no, I absolutely have no plans for that, and it's overall pointless for her when she can just keep on training and improving her Super form.
Q: What about the rest of the Mane Six? Will they also have Super forms as well, not counting the awful Rainbow Power forms?
A: Other than maybe Twilight Sparkle trying to gain control of her burning form, nope, no plans. Besides, there's a very good reason why only Dash can go Super, and that's because she's pretty much the full representation of all six Elements of Harmony, with Loyalty still being her strongest. She's the destined and long-lost Flame and Soul of Harmony, in other words.
Q: Do you do requests or art trades of anything?
A: I don't do any of those, as I'm only a commissioner who goes around commissioning people to do Lux Klonoa and Super Dash. I cannot draw in real life because I'm a disabled person. Therefore, I can only write fanfics, and even then, I don't do requests on those. Sorry.
Bu-but even disabled people can do stuff! I'm sure you can draw.
Honestly, the last person who said that to me several years ago grew to be a total asshole who automatically assumed that every person can still do stuff no matter what the disability was. This was also the same person who pretty much went rampant on certain sites, saying that my stuff at the time was deemed worthy to be satirized the hell out of. This was at a time where bronies didn't exist yet, btw.
In short, don't be a fool like she was and assume stuff about me. I cannot draw. At all. And I hope you respect that instead of trying to convince me otherwise.
lololololololol you can't draw and only post commissions, while other people can. sucks for yooou
...My response? This:
Not only is that statement seriously offensive to us disabled folk, but it really screams that you have some sort of superiority complex or similar flaw. =/
Q: I heard that you (insert rumor here) and that you (insert another rumor here). Are they true?
A: It depends on what the rumors are about. Please comment on my page with details and I will answer.
If the rumors are something ridiculous like, "He wants Sonic and Rainbow Dash to engage in eternal sex and pleasure," then they're definitely NOT true at all. =/
I'm seeing you on (insert site here) causing drama and havoc and generally being immature. Is this really you here?
Chances are, it's not me and more likely someone impersonating me. I've made the decision in 2014 not to post on anymore message forums except for one: GTPlanet. Anywhere else, it's someone else who is either a fan of mine or is impersonating me.
I hear you have a mental problem of some sort?
In other words, do I have autism? No, I do not. I never was diagnosed with it in my life, just my physical disability. And I never even heard the term before Chris-chan came around. Now that guy is more than just autistic, and to even see someone compare me to him is just really wrong and off. =/
I can be obsessed. I can be ranty. I may even have some unusual, but sensible things that I do here (which I would be forced to delete if it blows up in my face here). But they do not automatically classify me as having such a disorder. Many famous people today and historical figures in the past have had these traits. If I am autistic for having these traits, then I guess they are/were as well.
(And I guess that includes the majority of bronies as well, considering that we like something that was originally intended for little girls. Welp, that's trolling 101 for you: misdiagnose someone to bring him or her below you, so that you feel superior to them in your mind. Kinda sad, really)
Any more FAQs will be added here if people ask them enough or otherwise.
