* BreakTheCutie: The "Hellathon" episode was dedicated to trying to make Pepito turn from a WideEyedIdealist into someone who sees that HumansAreBastards. [[spoiler:It works]].



** "But alas, it is 1888, and I am but a woman who..."

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: The "Hellathon" episode was full of examples. As well as a ShootTheDog (by drowning it) ...


Added DiffLines:

* WaxingLyrical: Pepito mostly talks using nothing but song lyrics ... at least until [[spoiler:he snaps and goes on a killing rampage]].

* RecycledAnimation: The saved costs of doing this are lampshaded in one episode, by employing the tactic twice and showing the actual costs. A straighter example is done more cleverly, by using a skit of a businessman in an apartment (who lives with an expressive goldfish) on the phone and just changing the dialogue. It still feels natural.

Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor: A cold opening has Mr Hell in disguise trying to trick the viewer into giving money for a charity to fight "This Terrible Disease". A sentient bacteria tears off his disguise and utters the TitleDrop, only for Hell to utter in disgust, "You people really are the ''lowest'' form of life!" Well, morally speaking, Mr. Hell ...

* ValuesDissonance: Invoked in "Diary of a Victorian Lady Detective". In fact, using this trope to deconstruct actual Victorian female detective novels is the entire premise of these sketches. For example, her dress blows upwards slightly during a heated chase scene, and a nearby vicar and a bishop arrest the title character for indecent exposure on those grounds (which, in those days, amounted showing an ankle).

* WhoWritesThisCrap: After a round of increasingly questionable sexual exchanges during the tail end of one episode, a female character calls out this trope, then accuses "a gang of spotty boy virgins hiding their latent sexuality by sniggering at girlies!"

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitch: The 'Golden Baby' skits combine this with DeusExMachina to produce positive results from negative situations, including what could have been a prison rape joke.

Added DiffLines:

* ManipulativeBastard: Oh, Mr. Hell, '''maliciously'''. In separate episodes he coerces a broke, jobless man into downing exotic drinks he can't pay for, and a temporary girlfriend into giving him money for strippers, under the guise of buying flowers for his 'grandmother'.

* GirlOnGirlIsHot: The main plot in one of the episodes ends this way because Mr. Hell says so.



* {{Pixellation}}: Mr. Hell's genitals get blurred out in one sketch.

Before the days of ''RobotChicken'', there was the Mr. Hell Show. A 2001 animated British sketch comedy based on a character from a line of greeting cards by Hugh [=MacLeod=]. The show tends towards a middleground in terms of connectivity between the sketches, with occasional links provided by interjections from the show's title character, a scheming, unscrupulous and rather out-of-touch-with-humanity devil known as Mr. Hell. The sketches themselves provide parodies of various aspects of culture without providing direct references all the time, with occasional recurring sketches.

* BerserkButton: If anything even vaguely reminds Serge the seal about the murder of his parents, expect him to go on a psychotic shooting rampage.
