Together, they plan escape from the insane asylum where they're being held against their will.

** On the StealthParody side, you have WordOfGod, intermittently. On the ParodyRetcon side, you have pretty much every other film Snyder has ever made, which universally play every trope claimed as satire here completely straight.

Nazi Zombies is a work. Please re-add only if the correct trope is found.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Babydoll's first action sequence features one of the gigantic samurai wielding a [[GatlingGood minigun]], while the second pits the girls against SteamPunk NaziZombies.
