A SubTrope of GagDub, that deals specifically with shortening works of fiction, and [[AffectionateParody making fun of it]]. The first of these was ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', which posted its first episode on Website/YouTube in 2006 however, the idea of abridging works for fun started [[OlderThanYouThink way earlier]], dating back to Theatre/TheCompleteWorksOfWilliamShakespeareAbridged (a play first performed in 1987), as well as UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash cartoons in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Other Youtubers who liked ''Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged'' began abridging other popular series. Originally, abridging was simply a FollowTheLeader, but over the years has become [[FromClonesToGenre a genre in itself]]. In the mid-2010s, a sub-genre based on "[[WebVideo/CodeMENT MENT]]" emerged.

->'''Joekage:''' First, one guy makes a bridge. And everybody uses it, they're like, "Ooh, look, a bridge. That's new." So, like, these other two guys make another bridge. And it's kinda like the first one, but people use it anyway because the first guy is like "Oh, their bridge is pretty cool too, check it out." And then these three other guys are like, "Oh, we're going to make the best bridge ever, we're going to combine our talents and be like, "Oh, look at our bridge, it's totally amazing, ooh." and it's like, it turns out really good, and it's like the best out of all the other bridges. Everybody subscribes to it.\\

'''Joekage:''' I mean, uh, everybody crosses it. Because it's a bridge. Yeah. And before you know it everybody and their mother is making a bridge! So there's a bridge. Everywhere. Nobody even knows why they're making a bridge anymore. They just want people to cross it. They don't care where they're going. The first guy is like, "I'm going to go to conventions to promote my bridge!" It's like, it's just a bridge. It's not a big deal. Get over it.'''
