... Wait, what? Oh. Right. Entering the Hiimdaisy article, or whatever.

Hiimdaisy (pronounced "Hi, I'm Daisy!") is a webcomic that specializes in making super serious games much funnier.

The artist, known as Gigi Digi (formerly Peachi), has done several comics, which have gained much fame on a certain Web site. Her comics cover Metal Gear, Professor Layton, Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend of Zelda, Persona 3, Persona 4, and Ace Attorney (and sometimes, Mother 3).

The series was discontinued so that she could focus on Cucumber Quest.

Strips are hard to come by, since the original website locations have been taken down, but there are video comic dubs published on YouTube that cover at least the Metal Gear Solid series and Persona 4.

Art from Hiimdaisy has also been featured as Trope Pictures for the following pages:

Not to be confused with a Rule 63 version of SHeDAISY.


Hey. Maybe you should try writing examples provided by this webcomic.

THOU ART THEE ART THOU WRITE THE EXAMPLES BELOW DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT

"No need to be so formal! I've seen you naked."

  • Adorkable: Generally Otacon's portrayal in the Metal Gear comics. Especially in the Hyperdub.
    • Young Ocelot too. He just tries so hard to be cool (and fails).
  • Affectionate Parody: It's clear that Gigi loves the games, or she wouldn't be doing such a good job mocking them.
  • Anachronism Stew: In Lets Destroy The Shagohod!, you can see Ocelot using a cellphone to take a picture of Snake being tortured, and he also mentions "The Home Shopping Network", all in a parody of a game that takes place during the Cold War.
  • Animals Hate Him: Solid Snake and his tendency to get wolf-dogs surround and bite him all over.
  • Arson, Murder, Squick: The Pain.

Tommy Gun! Grenade! Beekini!

  • Art Evolution: Just compare Let's Destroy Metal Gear! and Let's Destroy the Shagohod!.
  • Art Shift: An odd variation, with only two characters concerned. Both are extremely plot important, however, and work as a bit of Fridge Brilliance on Peachi's part. Notice Dojima's face? It goes from being rough, beardy, and frankly ugly to being smoother and better looking as the revelation about his dead wife comes to the fore. In addition, Adachi goes from being drawn in a beautiful, sparkly style to having extremely scary expressions as his true nature starts to slip out, ranging from mocking Dojima over his dead wife to scaring the Investigation Team.
    • A straighter example happens while the Investigation Team are on camp, after Kanji has joined the team. Him, the main character and Yosuke are sharing a tent, and while we see Kanji and the MC wondering why Yosuke's panicking in the normal art style, Yosuke sees them differently.
    • During the scene where "you wonder why the voice acting is so hard to hear during animated cutscenes", the protagonist's face is drawn Bishounen-style, probably to poke fun at the fact that the art style in the cutscenes is pretty different from the in-game art.
    • The unmasking of Raiden in Let's Destroy Metal Gear again! is another good example.
    • METAL GEAR!!! as done by both Snake and Raiden.
  • Attention Whore: Vamp, possibly, what he does sums it up.

Vamp: I'M BORED AND I NEED ATTENTION
(He then stabs Emma in the back)

Kanji: "You sayin' I like dudes? TAKIN' YOU PUNKS DOWN RAAAAAAAAA"

"Hey guys shouldn't we stop her now before we have to fight her sha-"
"UM YOU GUYS WE SHOULD REALLY TRY-"

Chie: Hey, there's a noose here!
Narrator/Protagonist: Spooky. Your thoughts, Yosuke?
Yosuke: Nooses are bad.
Narrator/Protagonist: Super!

    • Later:

Adachi: Um, so what do we know about the case so far?
Dojima: The perp is probably in Inaba.
ACE DETECTIVE

Sniper Wolf: Snake, we've got to battle like sniper warriors!
Snake: Actually I'm going to hide behind this rock and fire remote-controlled missiles from where it's impossible for you to hit me.
Sniper Wolf: *BOOM* What!

Yeah, so for dinner tonight, I'm thinking spaghetti...

Yukiko: "Hey, Kanji's gone missing! What do you think?"
Protagonist:
[ ] "I dunno"
[>] "He's in the TV"
Narrator: "You wanted to say that, but you don't have enough Common Sense."

  • Groin Attack: How Chie introduces herself. Fortunately, she isn't targeting the protagonist. Unfortunately (maybe), she's targeting Yosuke.
  • Have I Mentioned I Am Heterosexual Today?: Kanji has trouble getting people to believe he likes girls after his Shadow-self pretty much admits that he's gay. During the camping trip he even tried to jump into the girl's tent completely naked. After he joined the team, Yosuke started showing hints of this as when he was afraid of catching Kanji's gayness.
  • Hollywood Heart Attack: The Metal Gear comics have a lot of HHHNNNNNNNGGGGG induced deaths.
  • Hurricane of Puns: Teddie from Persona 4 still does this, and the joke that portrays this habit -- which has him using Bear as a synonym for everything -- is accompanied by quite possibly the best face anyone's ever done on Teddie in a comic.
  • The Hyena: Yukiko.

Shut up. It's an endearing character trait.

Emma: What about me?
Raiden: Oh, Emma. We have to get out of here before-
Emma: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-
Raiden: Uh, Emma, we really need to get out...
Emma: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-
Raiden: Here, just take a deep breath...
Emma: *Underwater* GRHLBHRGLRBRLG

The Boss: (About The End) Once he's done taking his nap, it'll be The End for the boy... Yeah, that was pretty good, huh.
Snake: T_T T-The Boss and I used to make bad puns together...

    • Another one after Snake loses his eye:

Paramedic: Snake, have you ever seen Dracula?
Snake: No!
Paramedic: Well, I guess you can only see half of it now!
Sigint: OOOOOOOOHHHHH.

Meryl: Since Psycho Mantis screwed with my mind, I can see where the mines are!
Snake: You might call yourself... a mine reader.

  • Snake and Meryl share a brief laugh before she punches him* *PFFFFT*

Snake: OK I got a Mine Detector! HERE I GOOOOOO!!! (steps on a mine)
Gray Fox:'I'm going to kill everyone in this hallway indiscriminately for no reason! (confronting Otacon) OK HERE I GOOOOO!!!

Shadow Teddie, Protagonist, Kanji, and Yosuke singing: Your futile exis-tence has no meeea-ning~

  • Nobody Here But Us Birds: Naturally occurs in "Let's Destroy the Shagohod", but Peachi makes it outright hilarious by having it succeed despite Snake not even trying. For example, saying "Caw." while a guard is looking right at him, or saying "I'm a tree" while holding a couple of branches, again while a guard looks right at him.
  • "No. Just... No" Reaction: The MC's response to being asked to join the sports club and band club.
  • No Name Given: The Persona 4 Protagonist.
  • No One Could Survive That

I am Sniper Wolf, and somehow I am unharmed after, like, 8 bullets to the face. Look at my boobs.

  • Noodle People: "Can I touch your hannnnnnnnnnd?", asks the Gas Station Attendant as her arm makes contortions a tentacle would be proud of. Igor has a Noodle Nose. Ocelot has a noodle neck.
  • Obviously Evil: Let's just say that Adachi is more obvious in this adaptation.
  • Only Sane Man: The Protagonists of each game are forced to weather the insanity of the other characters. The Persona 4 Protagonist has it the worst so far. By MGS2, Snake states that he just stopped asking questions.
    • Though, to be honest, Snake's sanity seems to have slipped a bit by MGS2 (Probably a side-effect of Raiden becoming the main protagonist, and therefore, the new Only Sane Man)
  • The Other Darrin: Volgin's voice actor is different in the Broad Spectrums version of Lets Destroy The Shagohod part 2.
  • Pass the Popcorn: The Protagonist, Yosuke, and Teddie do this while watching Chie and her Shadow argue.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Shut up, Adachi."
  • Porn Stash: Yosuke's impression of the Persona 4 Protagonist has taken a critical hit... since it's not even porn.
  • Potty Emergency: "I have to pee!" "I HAVE TO PEE!" "YOU GUYS! I HAVE TO PEE! SO BAD! I'M GONNA PEE! RIGHT! HERE!"
    • Subverted "Ok, nevermind."
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything:

Dojima: All this work is such a pain. It's like people expect the police to solve crimes or something. Nanako, get Daddy another beer.

A mysterious mass of energy is gathering...
The powerful emotions of your friends and loved ones are flowing into your heart...!
Gourmet King: I thought about you when I farted.

Chie: TRIAL OF THE DRAGON! *WHAM*
Yosuke: *in crippling pain* Oh, motherfucker...

(About Chie's Shadow)" "Dominatrix Banana Head!"
(About Yukiko's Shadow): "It's symbooooolic~!"
(About Kanji's Shadow): "It's still symbooooolic! (you know, because he's gay) (do you get it)"

  • Running Gag:
    • "And no one ate dinner that night."
    • SOCIAL LINK GO!
    • DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDE!!!
    • "Let's accomplish an objective!" -ring ring- [CALL] "OF COURSE."
    • Adachi wants to talk about MURDERS! (Yaaaayyyy!)
    • "Did someone say (insert something here)!?"
    • "No fighting!"
    • "[Enthusiastic mention of Junes]"

YAAAAAAAAY!

    • STEAK.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Yeah, you'd be surprised how many people don't realise that "Hiimdaisy" is a contraction of "Hi I'm Daisy" and think she's a dude.
    • Or assume the LJ name is a reference to the Mario Kart meme and has nothing to do with her real gender.
  • Schedule Slip: Not that there's an apparent schedule, but gaps between updates tend to be very long. In fact, the last update was in May 2010.
    • Explanation for the current slip here.
  • Shoehorned First Letter:

Shadow Teddie: The word of the day is: FUTILE! As in: "Your futile existence has no meaning." Chie, do you know any other words that start with F?
Chie: Fsteak.
Shadow Teddie: Excellent.

Snake: Kid! Emma's being stabbed! She's gonna die!
Raiden: Why am I even trying anymore?

Chie: WHO SAID STEAK?

Snake: Naomi, what happened--
Naomi: I DON'T KNOW, STOP ASKING ANY QUESTIONS!!
Snake: Naomi--
Naomi: I DON'T KNOW, LEAVE ME ALONE!!
Snake: ... That doesn't answer my question...
Naomi: STOP CALLING ME!!!

Kanji Tatsumi: "What? You saying I like dudes? Because..."
Naoto Shirogane: "Did someone say girls? Because I'm a boy just so you know.

Yosuke: "By the way... Chie or Yukiko? Which one's your type?"
Chie: STEAK STEAK STEAK KUNG FU STEAK!
Yukiko: HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
Chie
Yukiko
Both
> Can I wait until I have more girls to choose from?

Snake: "Time to find that Metal-"
[CALL]
Snake: "Oh boy."

    • Also this:

Soldier: Oh boy, I hope I don't get shot in the face.
Ocelot: Shot in the face, you say. *does so*
Soldier: OW Why would you even do that

Kanji Tatsumi: I! LOVE! WOMEN!

Chie: STEAAAAAKSTEAKSTEAKSTEAAAAKSTEAKSTEAKSTEAKSTEAAAAAAKSTEAKSTEAK!!!

  • The Problem with Pen Island: Not in the comics themselves, but there are people who will write and/or pronounce the artist's LJ name as "him daisy" rather than "hi, I'm Daisy".
  • Troll:

News anchor: "Hey, Dojima! Remember that time your WIFE got RUN OVER BY A CAR?"
Dojima: (shatters coffee mug)
(And no one ate dinner that night.)

Big Boss: "Get Out!!"
