''Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ'' is a RailShooter made by companies Enjoy Up and Gammick for the NintendoDS in 2008. It is quite possibly one of the strangest and most inventive titles for the system, and not just for its title.

The story: since Little Red Riding Hood and the Woodcutter had killed the Big Bad Wolf, everything went along nicely in the Fairy Tale kingdom... but then something happened. The Woodcutter died and a mysterious plague began infecting the residents of the kingdom, turning them into zombies or mindless monstrosities. Red then, along with her friend Momotaro from the Japanese folktales, decided to stop this ZombieApocalypse at all costs!
----
!!The game provides examples of:

* {{Animesque}} - This game surely comes from Japan, does it? ...Nope, it's Spanish!
* BadSanta - He's one of the bosses.
** NinjaPirateZombieRobot - Naked zombie Santa on a flying robotic sleigh.
* BlobMonster - The blobs in stage 5, when you shoot them they act like an AsteroidsMonster.
* CreepyDoll - Some enemies are giggling, floating dolls that teleport over you.
* CrosshairAware - During the fight against the Three Little Pigs' tank.
* DirtyCommunists - The Three Little Pigs have turned into this, for all intents and purposes. They attack with a SinisterScythe, [[ChainsawGood Chainsaw]] and some kind of high-tech wall mechanism/tank.
* FanService - Every time Red crouches while standing still, she'll [[PantyShot show her panties]].
* FlungClothing - At the beginning of every level, Red Riding Hood throws away her red cape.
* FracturedFairyTale - ''Oh yeah''.
* GogglesDoNothing - Momotaro's fashion choice, keeping with the Animesque setting.
* GraphicsInducedSuperDeformed
* GrievousHarmWithABody - Gretel, the second boss, can attack among other things by whacking the player with her brother Hansel's leg. [[{{Squick}} She ate him, and the witch too]].
* HauntedCastle - The Infected Castle, home of the fairies and of Literature/SleepingBeauty.
* LittleRedFightingHood
* MarathonBoss - Level 3-1 consists entirely in a fight against a huge, horrific puppet that is walking on the docks besides the player.
** It then turns into a PuzzleBoss. It stops and begins throwing at the player giant explosive wrecking balls: the player must shoot at them, making them explode while they're swinging back, damaging the puppet in the process.
* {{Ninja}} - Momotaro of course.
* SequentialBoss - The Three Little Pigs' tower-shaped tank. May also count as CoresAndTurretsBoss.
** Also Zombzilla. When he's defeated, he comes back with cybernetic arms.
* ShowsDamage - Most of the zombies, when shot, lose their arms before exploding and leaving only their legs behind.
* ShoutOut - Possibly to ''MetalSlug'': the choice of weapons is quite similar (machine gun, flamethrower, shotgun and laser beam), and the characters shout their names before using them (sadly, no ''[[MemeticMutation Rocket Lawnchair]]'' for you).
* SpiritualSuccessor - ''ZombiePanicInWonderland'' for the Wii by Akaoni Studio. In fact, this company is made of some of the people behind LRRHZB, so it counts as a sequel of sorts.
* SpritePolygonMix - Entirely poligonal stages and pixel sprites.
* SugarApocalypse - Among the levels there are magical forests, castles, Santa's toy factory...
* TheTokyoFireball - The last stages have nothing to do with fairy tales, but instead are set in a half-destroyed Tokyo infested with zombie salarymen, robots and weird creatures. You meet ''[[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Zombzilla]]'' at the end.
* TrueFinalBoss - Complete the game on Hard to get the real ending.
* WordSaladTitle - Averted, according to WordOfGod the 'BBQ' part of the title refers to the flamethrower weapon that can burn the zombies to a crisp, "barbequing" them.

* WhiteHairedPrettyGirl - Red Riding Hood. We can't call her "Little", since she became a {{Stripperiffic}} gun-toting heroine... with GirlishPigtails.

* AcceptableTargets - Italians (at one point in Pinocchio's stages some crazy drivers try to run Red and Momo down) and Chinese people (the fourth level looks like a "parody" of Communist China). YourMileageMayVary on those, though.
* AccidentalInnuendo - In the player selection screen, upon choosing Red, she'll say: "Let's do it!". Maybe not so accidental, after all...



* DemonicSpiders - Two enemy types introduced in the second-to-last level before the final boss. The first one is a giant flying insect that shoots homing energy balls, takes a ludicrous amount of damage with the basic weapon, and is often positioned in the upper DS screen so that you can't hit it with the powerful close range weapons or the grenades. You often fight two or three of these at one time. The second one is a Cthulhu-headed mutant that stands still while shooting lanterns that home on you; when you kill it the tentacled head detaches from the body and runs after you! Of course you'll find them coupled with the above insects, other annoying enemies (flying heads that shoot bullets) and environmental hazards, making for a [[FakeDifficulty short but nasty]] level.



* MostAnnoyingSound - The continuous giggling of the evil dolls. Having more than two on the screen at one time can drive a player crazy!
