''LastExile'' has a couple AbridgedSeries.
----
!!![[http://www.youtube.com/user/Unwardil Unwardil's]] Series

->LA-A-A-A-ME!
----
This show provides examples of:
* AuthorAvatar: Unwardil plays himself, trying to attract enough attention from the WGA so that the actual ''Last Exile'' series will be given a better DVD release. It doesn't work out so well.
* AnythingThatMoves: Lady Batshit-Thane is said to be an aggressive nymphomaniac. If the butler is to be believed, even inanimate objects aren't safe.
* ButtMonkey: The Silvana tech crew pulls this on Mullin to degrees well beyond the original series.
* CrucifiedHeroShot: Alex, as in the actual series. The difference being this time around, Alex does it to himself intentionally as part of his crazy screenwriting method.
* EasyEvangelism: Apparently off-screen everyone converted to Goatslam at one point, a religion built around the Lame Goat.
* {{Fanservice}}: "...and no one looks good in a one-piece G-suit!"
* GenreSavvy: Par for the course with an abridged series, but taken in a peculiar direction as the characters are less savvy of the genre of Last Exile and far more savvy of abridged series elements.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Sophia is part this, part {{Badass}}. Over the series she goes from being somewhat overly forceful to being a demented, power-mad sadist.
* HonorBeforeReason: The Aristocracy just loves this. One officer decries a change of plans (that will cost face but save a vast number of lives in a battle) with "Won't someone please think of the Chivalry!"
* ILoveTheDead: Lord Batshit-Thane's daughter remarks that "dead things turn [her] on". Later she becomes a nurse. The post-plot montage remarks that the death rate at her hospital has never been higher.
* LarynxDissonance
** Partly averted later on by Dounia, who is guest-voiced by Cassius614, an actual female.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: Even his unconvincing ladies' voices have a variety to them.
* MedalOfDishonor: Mullin is proud of his survivor medals until Lavie points out that their existence means his military has so little expectation of men that it can afford to give out gold participation awards.
* MusicalEpisode: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2LCdDAaldg And how!]] She Who Must Be Obeyed later makes Unwardil summarize it the normal way.
* ReferenceOverdosed: Which got called on by the lame goat, until it stopped working.
* RuleOfCool: Actually a power in this series, competing against the power of lame.
* RunningGag: The "Lame" Goat, Alvis' stuffed toy with an infuriating sense of comic timing.
** OverusedRunningGag: Lavie breaks the "Lame" Goat, leading to an ornate funeral ceremony.
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: Virtually every sound effect, a trademark of Unwardil's videos.
* SelfDeprecation: Unwardil has characters remark he relies too much on lame references.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Considering this is Unwardil, everyone is prone to falling victim to this trope on numerous occasions.
* FailOSuckyname: The nobles are grilled about leaving an important defense post in the hands of Duke Mad/Batshit-Thane, citing that they're putting everyone's lives in the hands of a man whose name means "crazy prince".
* TooDumbToLive: "Chivalry!"
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The fourth Mysterion is mentioned once, and then completely forgotten.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: "Through the Steam and Clouds", a parody of "[[Music/DragonForce Through The Fire And The Flames]]" on a fiddle and a doumbek (both played by Unwardil). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAgEUbn20X4& 6:04 - 7:40.]]



* EarWorm: "Chocobo On Rye", for a start.



* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Alex as a writer lives and breathes this trope. Most of the more symbolic things that happen late in the series are a result of Alex's strange vision.
** Alex's insane, incomprehensible art is actually part of the plot. Unwardil thought getting him to be the writer would make [[SpringtimeForHitler make his judgment more valued so he could resume saving the series]]. Too bad She Who Must Be Obeyed loved Alex's writing.

* DidNotDoResearch: Played with InUniverse. Wina Lightening, the main crew's sonar operator informed Sophia that sonar would be inherently useless on an airship since it lacks a liquid medium. Sophia instead decided Wina must be a drug addict.
