A comic strip by Nam Nguyen for the campus newspaper ''The Daily Texan'', Psychobevo parodies the University of Texas' already-fanatical school spirit UpToEleven. In the comic's universe, UT's longhorn steer mascot Bevo exists in two incarnations: one a terrifying demigod that devours anything in sight, the other an AxCrazy psycho killer. Both work in unison to terrorize the campus with massive amounts of meticulously-drawn violence. If students appear, they're usually about to be slaughtered.

Although there isn't usually an obvious plot or continuity, the topics in each strip tend to line up with current events at the university (nightmarishly exaggerated, of course). High-profile football games are portrayed as epically violent affairs, and Student Government elections are loaded with conspiracy. But none of these things can compare to the simple horror of seeing a beloved mascot turned into a world-destroying abomination. Once you get a dose of Psychobevo, you'll never look at burnt orange the same way again.

''Psychobevo'' contains examples of:

* AffectionateParody: It's hard to tell. The artist may go to the school, but everything about it is outrageously skewered.
* AnAesop: A lot of strips give helpful reminders to vote in the Student Government elections or "clear your registration bars." No telling how seriously these were meant to be taken.
* AncientConspiracy: The Eyes of Texas, whose members wear masks emblazoned with giant eyeballs and hypnotize the students into worshiping Student Government.
** Amusingly, they're based on a real organization at UT.
* AxCrazy: "Hook 'em," the cartoonishly-drawn Bevo. He's even holding bloodied axes in a few strips.
* EldritchAbomination: Bevo
* HypnoticEyes: The Eyes of Texas
* MindScrew: And how!
* [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]]: The football players of UT's rivals, A&M and OU, seem to be portrayed this way.
* WardingGestures: UT's "Hook 'Em Horns" gesture (which fittingly resembles "devil horns") is constantly and hilariously used by every character, ''even when they're in agony or dying.''
