''Lollipop Chainsaw'' is a 2012 game from Grasshopper Manufacture directed by {{Suda 51}} and written by [[Film/{{Slither}} James]] [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Gunn]] for the {{PlayStation 3}} and the {{Xbox 360}}. Suda wanted to create something different from the standard zombie fare with this game; as part of what he brands "a piece of pop zombie entertainment", zombies explode into bright, multicolored displays of light and glitter instead of blood and gore (instead a mix of the two for the English release). He also tried to push the limits of how much he could blend pop music sensibilities into a zombie-themed BeatEmUp.

...well, there's the minor matter of a zombie apocalypse tearing through San Romero High--which has claimed her boyfriend, Nick, as a casualty. But fear not for dear Juliet: the not-so-average cheerleader has enough knowledge of magic to separate Nick's head from his infected body while keeping him alive. Why? Because she's a zombie hunter, duh.

Juliet Starling never had it so good. She's a popular cheerleader at San Romero High School, California. She's smart, athletic, has a supportive family, a cute boyfriend, and most of all, it's her eighteenth birthday party! What could go wrong?

Well, there's a ''small'' matter of the Zombie Apocalypse that's tearing through San Romero High, which has incidentally claimed her boyfriend Nick as a casualty. Luckily for Juliet, Nick, and all players of HackAndSlash games, our (not so) average cheerleader happens to have a chainsaw to dissuade any undead gropers, and a thorough enough knowledge of magic to separate her boyfriend's head from his infected body while keeping him alive. Why? Because she's also a zombie hunter, duh.

Now armed with her magical chainsaw, and the support of her family and utterly bewildered disembodied boyfriend, it's up to Juliet to stop disgruntled classmate emo-goth-wannabe Swan and the Dark Purveyors, a group of Rock and Roll Zombie Lords he's summoned, before they eat everyone in San Romero, California, and the World, and more importantly: ''ruin her birthday party!''

Suda looked to create something a bit different from the standard zombie fare with this game. As part of what he brands "a piece of pop zombie entertainment" zombies explode into bright, multicolored displays of light and glitter instead of blood and gore (instead a mix of the two for the English release), and he intended to push the limit of how deeply Pop Music sensibilities could be blended into a zombie-themed BeatEmUp.

!!Provides examples of:

* AbhorrentAdmirer: Juliet and her dad, Gideon have a number of these amongst the zombies. The farmer zombie photoshops Juliet's head onto swimsuit model bodies, while the female police officer zombie gets off with her nightstick while looking at class photos of Gideon. Swan also crushes on Juliet leading to the whole zombie mess, which is why getting rid of Nick is one of his goals.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Juliet's chainsaw is used at various points throughout the game to cut through entire four-door sedans, chain-link fences, steel security shutters, stacks of trees, concrete pipes, bus doors, and I-beams. She repeatedly uses it to cut flying cars in half before they can hit her. [[JustifiedTrope It's an explicitly magical weapon, of course.]]

-->'''Nick''': How am I still talking WITHOUT A ''FUCKING THORAX''!?
* ArtShift: Several things in this game like the menus, loading screens, and Game Over screen are depicted in the style of a vintage comic book from the 70's or 80's. And then during Chapter 2, there's an Art Shift that happens during ''gameplay'': Whenever Juliet--a semi-realistic-looking character--[[XRaySparks gets shocked by electricity or lightning]], viewing from the front reveals that she has a cartoonish skeleton.

* SpoiledSweet: Juliet appears to cater to this from the various cutscenes. She's obviously got top tier social standing within the school, but doesn't seem to have AlphaBitch tendencies...excepting Swan and his minions, of course.

** Not JUST looking up her skirt... she talks to him by turning her back to him and bending forward, while he crouches to enjoy the view. He also makes her wear cotton underwear with a teddy bear print every lesson. And remember this is her birthday, meaning she was still underage (depending on which state the game takes place in) while he was doing this...

* Bilingual Bonus: The Dark Purveyor's death speech explicitly tells you what's going on and the identity of the final boss. However, even if you know Latin, you probably will miss the meaning of the latter until the third or fourth time.

** Do note that she's not distinctly rude to Nick, as the trope would imply, but later on it's clear [[spoiler: that Nick finds being just a head hard to bear, and wants Juliet to kill him or leave him so he wouldn't hold her back. Also, earlier than that, it's shown that despite being insensitive about Nick's feelings from time to time, she really does worry about him, her nightmare was him turning into a zombie.]]

* SpiritualSuccessor: Suda is definitely exploring familiar territory. The hack and slash combat is very ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'' and the unusually stylized take on zombies was also present in ''VideoGame/{{Killer7}}''.
