|“||THEY KILLED SKECHERS??? THAT'S JUST TOO FAR!||”|
The Pet War is a war that spanned from August 25 to September 9, 2020, in which members of L'Manberg fought against members of the Dream Team SMP due to the fact that Sapnap killed many of L'Manberg's pets.
On August 25, 2020, Sapnap toyed with Niki's fox Fungi by continuously firing shots with his bow right next to the fox. On the fifth shot, he accidentally shot and killed Fungi. On that same day, he also killed Harold, Tommy's cow, thinking it was a random cow.
Tommy, upon hearing about the killing hours later, griefed Sapnap's house, breaking windows and flooding it. Around this time, Niki logged on and learned from Tommy about Fungi's death. Niki became angry upon hearing the news and vowed to take revenge, intimidating Tommy since he had not seen her angry before.
After Tommy finished griefing Sapnap's house and returned to work on Vape Tower, Niki returned to take action. Niki decided to take Sapnap's fish as leverage and make demands. Working together, Niki, Tommy, and Tubbo gained possession of Beckerson (George's fish) and Mars (Sapnap's fish). With the fish in their possession, Niki and Tommy decided on their demands. Niki stated that she didn't want to make enemies and only wanted a written apology. Tommy stated that he wanted to use the opportunity to regain his discs, and the three agreed on a plan and attempted to put their plan into action.
Failing to get ahold of Sapnap, the three attempted to contact George and Dream. Dream picked up, and the three began making demands by telling him that they had possession of the two fish. Niki asked for a simple apology, and Tommy proposed that Dream return his disc for the fish. After Dream taunted Tommy and Tubbo by playing Tommy's "Mellohi" disc he later claimed as fake, the situation escalated into a new conflict where Tommy and Tubbo (aided by Jack Manifold and Niki) attempted to get what they thought was the real disc from Dream. In the end, Dream got the fish back, and Tommy got his real "Mellohi" disc back. Niki figured that she would have to speak to Sapnap directly for an apology, so the matter was left unresolved.
The next day, Sapnap logged on and found his house griefed. Niki, Sapnap, and Tommy joined a call, and Tommy and Niki demanded for an apology. Sapnap briefly apologized to Niki for killing Fungi, but remained focused on getting revenge on Tommy for the griefing. Dream then entered the call and explained the events from the previous day. Sapnap killed Tommy, demanded for an apology from Tommy, and attempted to look for Henry, Tommy's cow. He failed and decided to end it there, telling Tommy to take the death as a lesson.
Fundy logged on the server days later on August 28 after a brief hiatus, surprised and furious when Niki told him what happened. Niki wanted to calm him down and deescalate by telling him about Sapnap's apology, but failed. Fundy also had great attachment to Fungi, causing him to want proper revenge, so he convinced Niki to help him.
Fundy looked for ways to get revenge, including an attempt to ask Dream for Sapnap's fish. Dream refused to hand the fish over, stating that they had to be protected due to them being the first named fish on the server. Dream instead lead Fundy to the community pet house, showing Fundy the Dream Team's pets and telling him to figure out which were Sapnap's. Dream walked out after Fundy mentioned killing the pets, and Fundy verbally led Niki to the house. Following Niki's arrival and Dream confirmation through in-game chat that Skechers was Sapnap's, Fundy pressured Niki into killing Sapnap's favorite fox, Skechers. After killing Skechers, Niki and Fundy hid their valuables and improved Fungi's grave.
The next day, Sapnap logged on and began getting revenge. Sapnap killed Niki's pet chickens and Leonard, Fundy's pet enderman who had resided Fundy's house for a long time. In addition to killing their pets, Sapnap also destroyed the diamond block on Fungi's grave, burning it in a lava pit in the Nether. After taking revenge, Dream and Sapnap moved their pets to a secret location as a precaution.
Formal declaration of war
Fundy soon took out his anger on Punz in his Bee Game that resulted in the death of Punz's bee, Beenus. During the bee game, many events happened. Tommy and Tubbo interfered, and Punz lost all his things to them after accidentally falling off his tower. Fundy then manipulated everyone there to make them believe that Punz was in the wrong, which resulted in a small portion of the latter's tower being destroyed. However, Fundy also took a loss during this situation by losing his pair of netherite leggings, "drip but brown."
After messing with Punz, Punz asked, "Fundy, what the hell, what've you started Fundy?" Fundy responded with, "Oh, it has three letters and I want you to say the word." Punz responded with, "War." This was the formal declaration of the Pet War.
Confrontation and escalation
While Dream and Sapnap ran off to hide their remaining pets days before, George was streaming at the time. George did not follow the two, but, Fundy, watching George talk to his stream on top of the Community House in third-person perspective, noticed the tiniest purple pixels and an orange one in the background heading west near Eret's castle. Fundy recognized the pixels as Dream and Sapnap with a fox, and logged on to search for the hidden pets. Fundy and Niki ran off in the direction that Dream and Sapnap had gone, and after a short amount of time, Fundy found the bunker with all the animals. He and Niki took most of the animals hostage to an unknown location and left Kristen behind as a warning.
After hiding the Dream Team's pets, Fundy and Niki found a bee that they adopted and named Beelloon. The two agreed that Niki would be the one to keep and care for it, but realized that they would have to protect and hide it for a while due to the war. The two named the bee with a name tag and began finding a place to hide it. Sapnap soon logged on, forcing them to rush to hide Beelloon underground in a secret bunker located across the L'Manberg docks.
Sapnap, seeing that his pets were missing, was furious and yelled for Fundy. He regrouped with Punz, noting that Punz was in mere diamond armor instead of his netherite. Sapnap asked him where his good armor was, and Punz responded saying that it was stolen by Tubbo and Tommy. Sapnap, even angrier at the L'Manbergians, demanded Fundy again. Punz then gave Sapnap Fundy's "drip but brown" as leverage, and Sapnap repeated his demand, now threatening to burn the drip.[Citation needed]
When Fundy finally responded, Sapnap demanded his pets be returned in order to save "drip but brown." Fundy said that some of the pets may have perished in an attempt to scare him, but the statement only infuriated Sapnap more, leading him to ask how many while taking Niki's fish and killing multiple of Niki's chickens. Fundy, realizing his attempt at scaring Sapnap backfired, backtracked and said none had died. Sapnap, not believing him, threatened to blow up Fungi's grave, and the two argued there.
During the argument, Fundy made fun of Beenus' death in front of Punz, who still partially believed Beenus was alive. Sapnap then called the L'Manbergians scum, adding that Tubbo also took Punz's items and helped escalated the situation. Fundy's attitude immediately switched as he yelled that Punz wouldn't have dared say that if the other L'Manbergians were there and that Sapnap only said that because he, along with Punz and Karl, surrounded him and were ready to kill him. Sapnap then trapped Fundy in a box, leaving one block so Fundy could see Sapnap blowing up Fungi's grave. Upset, Fundy logged off and challenged Sapnap to a duel to settle the matter.
|“||Sapnap, if you win, you get your pets back, I will accept my defeat and move on. But if I win, I keep your pets, get my stuff back and you get the fuck out of L'Manberg.||”|
—Fundy, setting the terms of the outcome of the duel
Over the course of a few days, Fundy built the arena where they were to fight, stating that it was built to be similar to the one from Dream and Technoblade's Duel. On September 9, 2020, Fundy and Sapnap met to duel and finalized the terms. Tubbo was given the role of referee for the duel. The two would fight five times using a given a set of items:
- Bed (for spawn reset)
- Full iron armor
- Iron axe
- Diamond sword
- Crossbow (loaded with an arrow)
- 20 arrows
- 12 cooked mutton
Fundy then told Sapnap the conditions of the duel, stating that if Sapnap won, he would get his pets, keep everything that was stolen from Niki and Fundy, and Fundy's golden leggings (which Fundy called the "drip"). If Fundy won, he would get Niki's fish and his "drip but brown" while also keeping Sapnap's pets. Sapnap would also have to rebuild Fungi's grave and be banned from L'Manberg after. After some deliberation, Fundy agreed to the conditions. Tubbo was given the items set in the conditions, and the two started preparing for the duel.
Sapnap won the first two rounds, and Fundy called for a break and got advice from Tubbo. After losing a third, Fundy challenged Sapnap to a rematch, offering "His longer schlong," his shovel that he had since day one. Sapnap accepted, and Fundy then won the next three battles, putting them on equal grounds. Following a break, the two returned to battle for another match to settle the matter. Fundy won the first battle, but then lost the next two. Fundy then won the third, resulting in a tie. Sapnap won the fourth, winning the duel and all the items.
Following the exchange of items, Sapnap messed with Fundy. Sapnap built a netherrack fire pit and asked Fundy if he remembered the bee game he forced Punz to play. Standing inside the pit, Sapnap then asked Fundy which fish he considered more valuable. Fundy refused to answer, stating that it was not part of the agreement and that it would reignite conflict. Sapnap then gave back Niki's fish to Fundy as a sign of peace and complemented Fundy before leaving. Fundy then declared the war over.
