''[[http://www.youtube.com/show?p=H4Z8Vj7XZOc&s=1 Arby 'n' the Chief]]'' is a {{Machinima}} series created by [[http://joncjg.blogspot.com/ Jon Graham]] (formerly known as "[=DigitalPh33r=]"), who also produced ''Machinima/DeusExMachina''. The series follows [[LivingToys two figurines]] based on Bungie and Microsoft's ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' series coming to life while their owner is away. As the title suggests, the main characters are based on Master Chief (a LeetLingo-speaking {{Jerkass}} whose only concern is how much he "pwns" in any given game, something that he is completely incapable of actually doing) and the Arbiter (a DeadpanSnarker who often acts as the voice of reason to the Chief's mindless ranting). One of the unique features of the series is that many of the characters actually speak through a [[SyntheticVoiceActor PC voice synthesizer]] instead of acted voice-overs. The series is based on Graham's previous shorts, ''Master Chief Sucks At Halo'', where the series' trademarks (including synthesized voice-overs and the Chief's personality) were developed. This is the show that has made Graham a internet wide phenomenon, rivaling Creator/RoosterTeeth in popularity.

** In the same episode, she later gives another one to Arbiter.
--> '''Arbiter''': Sigh. Really hoping this leads to a point where Chief's behaviour is significantly less retarded. If only for his own sake.
--> '''Cortana''': Must you use terms like that, Arbiter?
--> '''Arbiter''': Huh?
--> '''Cortana''': Come on, you've proven that you have a wide vocabulary. Surely you can dig around for alternatives that express your feelings more tastefully.
--> '''Arbiter''': Seriously? Chill out. I don't see anybody around here likely to take offense. I don't see any cameras on me either, do you? It's just us in here.
--> '''Cortana''': Yes. And I find it offensive.
--> '''Arbiter''': Why? You must know that my intention isn't to be derogatory
--> '''Cortana''': Of course your intention is to be derogatory. You're associating something that you don't like and look down upon with mental retardation. You're almost as bad as Chief sometimes.
--> '''Arbiter''': That's a mighty big leap, Cortana. I think you really ought to lighten up.
--> '''Cortana''': I think you need to shake off some of that low-brow attitude that has obviously rubbed off on you from Chief throughout the past few years.
--> '''Arbiter''': Fundamentally, I don't associate the word "retard" with the mentally handicapped. I use it and others like it because they're popular slang that pack a slight punch and inject a tiny bit of amusement into my empty existence.
--> '''Cortana''': Really? You're that unimaginative that you consider speaking crudely as the only method of enriching your life?
--> '''Arbiter''': What the fuck is your problem? Great work making an otherwise fine day awkward, Cortana. Having a nice time is so overrated.

* Bookends: Both the series pilot, and what at the time was the series finale, have a scene where someone at least claiming to be a delivery boy knocks on the door.

The series was a massive hit among Machinima subscribers and has garnered a substantial following which helped propel the series to greater heights and wider recognition. Even though Jon Graham is working on future projects such as ''Chemotheraplay'', ''Arby 'n' the Chief'' is already being labeled his MagnumOpus. In fact, many consider it to be one of the best shows that Machinima has featured on their channel.
