** The [[BonusBoss Bonus Bosses]] in the first game are pretty much walking Shout Outs, from ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' to ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'' to ''Film/ShortCircuit''.

* OnlySaneMan: Ophelia in the third game. While Alan generally doesn't ask any questions and comes off as barely smarter about his patients, Ophelia is constantly shocked and amazed by the situations they get themselves into and is quick to call them out on their stupidity/insanity.

''Amateur Surgeon'' is a series of medical based action puzzle games on [[Creator/AdultSwim Adult Swim]].com (or to put it simply, ''Videogame/TraumaCenter'' with idiots). The series centers around former pizza boy Alan Probe and his life after discovering the world of surgery. The games provide plenty of examples of morbid, gross-out humor with a unique difficulty curve. The series goes for more scatological and dark humor, easily seen with Alan's arsenal of improvised medical tools. The most iconic is a pizza slicer he uses as a scalpel.

The third game is available for mobile devices and deals with Alan's apprentice, Ophelia Payne. There's also a Facebook game focusing on running one of Alan's "Bleed Everywhere" clinics.



* {{Back Alley Doctor}}: The premise for the whole shabang. And we should also mention Back Warehouse Doctor, Back Old Folks Home Bathroom Doctor, Back Chicken Coop Doctor, Back North Pole Doctor... the one time Alan performs onscreen in a hospital it's an ''{{Abandoned Hospital}}!''

* {{Back Alley Doctor}}: AssistCharacter: The third game features Tag Team Partners, who can grant various abilities, such as healing the patient for a set amount of health, stopping time and even bringing the patient back to life with voodoo magic.

After the events of the first game, Alan started opening back alley clinics.



* FramingDevice: The third game's story is Ophelia and Alan telling the players the events of the past few weeks.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: In the sequel, Alan tells Bradley that they made a video game about him at the height of his fame. Bradley's played it, but laments that he never got the hang of the corkscrew and hopes that if a sequel is ever made they replace it with "something less awful." Then they both wordlessly look at the player. This is followed almost immediately by the level that introduces the syringe, which replaces the corkscrew.

* NoDamageRun: Required in file 2, patient 8 (Karl) of the original game (once you get inside him). Karl is a coffee addict, and as a result, his heart rate gets faster as time passes, rather than slower. You have to remove the coffee beans and drain (and suction out) the poison to stabilize his heart rate, then heal all the cuts you had to make. Dr. Bleed warns that the slightest injury (that means ''any'' unnecessary damage) will kill Karl. He also dies if you let his heart rate get to 200. Add that to the fact that each patient is a TimedMission anyway, and you've got yourself a NintendoHard level.

* {{Open Heart Dentistry}}: Alan is the only source for criminals to get medical care, ranging from lacerations to poisonings. With the occasional extreme body piercing and mechanical restoration.
* {{Significant Anagram}}: Flip the ''lan'' in Alan's name and you get... well, at least it's not called ''Amateur Proctologist.''

After crashing his private jet into the North Pole Alan sets about pulling christmas lights out of an elf, reanimating a reindeer carcass with candy canes and coat hangers, and patching up Santa with wrapping paper.

* {{Turbine Blender}}: In the introduction of the Christmas Edition (a sendup of the intro to the first game) Alan Probe, flying his private jet distractedly while reading an article about his rise to fame, collides with Santa's Sleigh. One of the reindeer is sucked into the turbines and shredded, causing Alan's jet to crash into Santa's Workshop.

* {{Heal It With Fire}}: One of Alan's tools is a lighter, a respectable cauterization method. Yet this also repairs bones, cuts in vital organs, and metal. The guy is a frickin' genius.
