If I wasn't convinced that E.C Meyers based his BTD characterization of Neptune off of #Rwby
Chibi before, Neptune literally putting on a mustache and saying he's going to go undercover confirms it. And just like in Rwby Chibi, Neptune is treated like a joke in BTD.

Now while it was revealed that Neptune put effort into being cool, It didn't change that externally he WAS that cool guy. He was able to project what he wanted successfully. In BTD not only does no one think he's cool, but he's treated like an incompetent & clowned by everyone.
In V3 not only is Neptune shown to act confident and cool in front of a ton of people applauding him, but we see he even has fangirls. He only started to "lock-up" and lose his cool when his water phobia was a factor, yet in BTD he gets embarrassed and locks up for a few people.
I won't really get into the controversial water phobia torture moments with Neptune in this book because many others have already talked about it. With these I'm just debunking the idea that Yatsuhashi and Fox didn't know about his phobia, and that Yatsu was *truly* remorseful.
Even after Yatsuhashi apologized to Neptune, he was STILL going to use his phobia against him. Neptune was forced into giving Yatsu & Fox what they wanted just so he wouldn't be tortured again. Yatsu didn't really care about Neptune's phobia, he was just slightly better than Fox.
If you were to ask me why was Neptune done so dirty in Before the Dawn, I would tell you that it's because he's best friends with Sun, and we know what Meyers thinks of Sun.
