Kernel Redenbacher is a popcorn kernel created by the Backup General-Later. When his creator falls asleep watching Alita: Battle Angel, Kernel Redenbacher, recognizing that the Backup General-Later is asleep and very drunk, decides to go out into the world and explore. He finds an open window and sneaks out, hitching a ride on a popCorvette’s tail engine, and heads to the local popcorner bakery, seeing a gorgeous, knock-out, saltry butter packet. He is smitten as can be, but notices that she is with a cruel domineering roll. He walks over and asks their names. The butter packet starts to answer, but the roll cuts her off and says he is Orvillain, and that Redenbacher is not welcome here. They start fighting, for hours, at the end of which Orvillain throws a blow at Redenbacher, knocking him out. When he wakes up, he drags his old and beaten body back to the Backup General-Later’s home, crawls in, and says to the rest of the much younger kernels : "sometimes the bad guys win, sometimes, do the heroes always win ?". Then the Backup General-Later wakes up and eats them all.
