->[[CatchPhrase POWER RESPECT!]]

''Bravest Warriors'' is the second cartoon from Pendleton Ward, creator of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. The show is about four 16 year-olds--Chris, Beth, Danny, and Wallow--who journey across the universe saving alien worlds with the power of their emotions. Did we mention this is from the creator of ''Adventure Time''?

As with ''Adventure Time'', it started out as a short on Nickelodeon's Random! Cartoons, but never got picked up. It is now a web series being distributed on the Website/YouTube channel Cartoon Hangover, with a new episode every Thursday. There is also a comic book series from Boom! Studios, written by [[Webcomic/ASofterWorld Joey Comeau]]. The show itself is written and directed by Breehn Burns (of DrTran fame), and is executive-produced by FrederatorStudios and WillMcRobbAndChrisViscardi.

It should be warned that the animation and the comic book, while having roughly the same styles, have a different approach to humor. The comic is more family friendly while the animation tends to get a little vulgar in places.

The production blog is [[http://bravestwarriors.cartoonhangover.com here]], and you can view the original short [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypJOq2vYfe8 here]]. And the [[TheWikiRule wiki]] for it is right [[http://bravestwarriors.wikia.com/wiki/Bravest_Warriors_Wiki here]].

!!!''Bravest Warriors'' contains examples of the following tropes:

* ActionGirl: Beth, of course.
* AllThereInTheManual: A lot of the information about the show is only found in production art so far.
* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: In the pilot Chris gives one to Beth in order to defeat a monster that feeds on pent-up emotions. Subverted in that she doesn't hear it over her laughter.
* ApocalypseMaiden: Early production art reveals Beth is a threat to all life and isn't aware of it.
* ArtEvolution: A lot of it between the short and the series, as usual.
** Chris kept his old body type but his hair style changed.
** Danny kept his old bodytype and his hair style changed as well as his skin becoming darker.
** Beth became [[HotterAndSexier curvier]] and shorter.
** Wallow became musclebound and gained a few inches on the rest of the group.
* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: Phobos and Deimos are presented as much larger than they actually are in the Martian sky; Deimos in particular would be hard to pick out without knowing what you were looking for, while Phobos would be much smaller than the Earth's moon.
** Along with the above, nobody on Mars seems to have the anticipated height gains from growing up in 1/3 Earth gravity.
*** Though in a DreamSequence, Danny punts several children much farther than would be possible in Earth gravity.
* AssimilationPlot[=/=]EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: Wankershim becoming large enough to encompass the entire universe is treated as both of these tropes by the Emotion Lord, but in practice nothing really changes, besides...
-->'''Wallow:''' Does anyone else feel kinda...tender?\\
'''Danny:''' I guess he's everywhere now.\\
'''Wallow:''' ''(scratches head)'' ...Rad!
* AnAxeToGrind: Wallow wields a Falcon Axe.
* BadassCreed: The Bravest Warriors Pledge.
* BigOlEyebrows: Danny.
* BlackBeadEyes: For most of the character designs.
* BlessedWithSuck: Subverted. In "Lavarinth", the emotion lord "grants" the team's opponents the ability to read their minds, much to the chagrin of the team. [[spoiler: Fortunately, they all become friends because of said power. Sorta.]]
* CallARabbitASmeerp: "Space Chickens" appear to be nothing more than pigeons.
* CallingYourAttacks:
-->'''Chris:''' Giant Bumblebee STORM TO THE EYEBALLS!
* CerebusRetcon: In the second story arc of the comic, Danny [[spoiler:is feeling tremendous guilt for exploding the planet of sexism from the first issue, resulting in dreams were he tries to change the outcome peace-fully (he fails)]].
* ChippendalesDancers: ''Unicorn'' Chippendales dancers appear in Beth's butter lettuce fantasy in "Butter Lettuce".
* ClingyJealousGirl: Beth to Chris, according to the production sketches.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: The Emotion Lord is a very ridiculous and strange person, but can get serious if he wants to.
* ColorCodedCharacters: Each Warrior wears a different color: Chris, blue; Beth, green; Danny, red; and Wallow, orange.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: This exchange in Ultra Wankershim:
-->'''Martian News Reporter:''' How do ''you'' think this will effect the Martian Tourism Industry?
-->'''[[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Catbug]]:''' He says he wants MORE carrots and BREADCRUMBS!
* CoolStarship: In the shape of an orca whale.
* CuteKitten: Well, a cute Catbug, at least.
* DevelopmentGag: Chris's father wielded the lightning sword Chris had in the pilot.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Plum was featured in the comic as the fifth member far before she appeared in the cartoon. Also in issue three of the comic, the New Miami Hackers were mentioned by name before they appeared in the eighth episode.
* EnergyWeapon: The Warriors summon weapons by rubbing heat-sensitive stickers on their suits. Danny has the Dog Sword, Beth has the Cat Lashes, Wallow has the Falcon Axe, and Chris has...Bee With Excellent Leadership Skills.
** In the original short, their weapons weren't animal-themed. Beth still had a whip and Wallow still had an axe, but Danny had some shadow blades and Chris had a lightning sword.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Between Chris and Beth, even though Chris CannotSpitItOut and Beth may not even realize her attraction.
-->'''Wallow:''' You fools are meant to be together. Like, all in a soft rock, soulmates-in-puberty kinda way. Everybody knows it.
* EverythingIsAnIpodInTheFuture
* FailedASpotCheck: Beth brushing her teeth in the Holojohn in "Butter Lettuce"... too sleepy to notice the guys are in there with a "30% sexier" hologram of herself.
* FailOSuckyname: Professor Fartsparkles.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: In Danny's dreams, [[spoiler:he goes back in time to stop the team from destroying the planet of sexism and formulate a peaceful solution. Unfortunately, the planet's inhabitants kill themselves in a massive war that wipes 99.9% of them out]].
* FamousAncestor: The Bravest Warriors' parents were called the Courageous Battlers.
* FiveManBand: Discussed.
-->'''Chris:''' So... you're the cool one, you're the funny one, and you're the...\\
'''Beth:''' [[LampshadeHanging Girl.]]
** Chris: TheLeader.
** Beth: TheChick.
** Danny: TheLancer[=/=]TheSmartGuy.
** Wallow: TheBigGuy.
** Plum: SixthRanger.
* FiveTokenBand: Chris (white), Beth (Asian), Danny (Hispanic), Wallow (Samoan).
* FlippingTheBird: Danny does this twice in the first episode.
* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** In "Emotion Lord," Beth says that Chris was standing too close to the Emotion Lord for her to get an accurate reading. [[spoiler:The reality is that the Emotion Lord ''is'' Chris.]]
*** In "Time Slime," Chris is the only one actually reacting to the emotional pain of the Fartsparkles Time Generator.
** In "Gas-Powered Stick" when [[spoiler:Plum kisses Chris, Chris is able to use his x-ray vision to see that Plum has ''two brains'' inside her skull]].
* FourFingeredHands: Pretty much everyone who has human-like hands, with the bizarre exception of Wallow, who has a full compliment.
* FreezeFrameBonus: See OnceAnEpisode.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Wallow.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: In comic issue #1, the Bravest Warriors bake two disturbing sentient cupcakes conditioned to fight each other to the death. Orange cupcake hammers green to pulp, but that's not the end of them. As the Warriors search for a sufficiently frightening movie, an undead, levitating green flash-burns orange with a death ray just as orange uses its bionic arms to retrieve a binder labeled "codes" from the Warriors' safe.
** [[spoiler:Which later ends up being actually relevant since the orange cupcake was piloted by the Warriors, and the green was being controlled by Sadness.]]
* FutureMeScaresMe: [[spoiler:It takes a while for Chris to accept that the Emotion Lord is his future self.]]
* GentleGiant: Wallow likes bringing home aliens as pets and is trained as a Nursing Assistant.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: A relatively benign variant: Beth's horse has been catatonic since it realized the true nature of the universe when she was seven. On the plus side, the horse seems to be [[TheAgeless effectively immortal]], since it doesn't seem to have aged and, according to Beth, [[NobodyPoops it doesn't poop anymore.]]
* HeldGaze: Chris and Beth does this in "The Bunless".
* HelloNurse: Plum for the guys.
* HeroesPreferSwords: In the pilot, Chris has a lightning sword. In the series, Danny gets a Dog Sword.
* HeroicBSOD: In issue 6 of the comic, [[spoiler:Danny begins to have regrets over destroying the planet of sexism from the first issue and laments not being able to save them]].
* HomeBase: They live in a giant invisible robot. On Mars.
* HotterAndSexier: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] with 30% and 40% sexier Beth. 9000% sexier loops around to [[FanDisservice disgusting]].
* IDontWantToRuinOurFriendship: Chris feels this way.
* InterspeciesRomance: Wallow and Supreme Concillor Gayle go back some way.
* JustFriends: Beth (supposedly) feels this way about Chris.
* LoveConfession: Chris uses this to defeat the Tickle Monster, but Beth doesn't hear it.
* LoveTriangle: Danny is crushing on Plum, Plum has a crush on Chris, and Chris is in love with Beth.
* MenDontCry: Averted with Chris, who's not afraid to shed a couple of tears while kicking ass.
* MissingBackblast: Averted in "Lavarinth", when Wallow turns the Falcon Axe into the Falcon Rocket Launcher. He aims it around a corner, and we can clearly see the smoke flying out of the back end.
* MusicalisInterruptus: In "Gas Powered Stick", Chris temporarily gains X-ray vision and sees Beth shaving her armpits and decides to sing about it until Plum comes out of the room
* MundaneMadeAwesome: '''Gas powered stick!''' '''''IT NEVER RUNS OUT OF GAS!'''''
* MythologyGag: The first issue of the comic opens with the Bravest Warriors destroying a planet to eliminate sexism like they did in the pilot episode.
** Also in the pilot, the [[StrawVulcan nigh emotionless]] aliens call Chris the "Lord Of Emotions". An Emotion Lord shows up in the second episode of the actual show. [[spoiler:It turns out they're right about him becoming an Emotion Lord, give or take a couple hundred years.]]
* NoodleIncident: That time on Venus between Wallow and Gayle.
** Exactly how does Chris become God to one set of people and Satan to another?
* NoodlePeople: Goes without saying, since it's a Pen Ward cartoon.
* ObliviousToLove: Chris is totally in love with Beth, but she doesn't notice. Danny and Wallow, however, do.
* OhNoNotAgain: In "Dan Before Time", When Future Danny travels back to the moment Danny is about to use his time machine and destroys it to prevent him from creating a TemporalParadox or a TimeCrash.
-->'''Wallow:''' This happens every time you invent a time machine.
* OnceAnEpisode: Like the snail from WesternAnimation/AdventureTime, there's a mysterious man wearing a space helmet called "The Passenger" hidden in each episode watching the Bravest Warriors. He even manage to appear inside their home without them noticing him.
* OperationJealousy: Saves a planet in "The Bunless".
* OutOfFocus: Since the first episode, Pixel has since only appeared in the "Lost Episode", Sugarbellies.
* ParentalAbandonment: The Bravest Warriors' parents, who were a team called the Courageous Battlers, were trapped in another dimension called the See-Through Zone and have remained there for two years, hence why a bunch of teenagers are living by themselves. The first season finale hints that there may be a way for them to save their parents.
* ThePowerOfLove: How the Tickle Monster is defeated.
* RealityWarper: Emotion Lords. They might also be PhysicalGod[=s=]. Not much is known about them except they're very emotional, and very powerful.
** Thirty space chickens, go!
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Catbug.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: At the end of "Time Slime", [[spoiler: the Warriors see that they've been killed ''twice'' trying to stop the malfunctioning time vortex, and decide to give up and go home.]]
** Also, the rocket bus driver in "Memory Donk" bails out because he can't remember how to fly (unfortunately, he tries this in the vacuum of space). Later, Jelly Kid bails out over Neo-Mars City when Danny asks it to help fight the Memory Donk.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: [[spoiler: Subverted! The Emotion Lord was just kidding. [[CloudCuckoolander Or was he really?]]]]
* ShoutOut:
** Wallow yells "[[Franchise/EvilDead Give me back my hand!]]" at one point.
** Chris's last name is [[Franchise/StarTrek Kirk]][[TheKirk man]].
** Beth's last name is [[OsamuTezuka Tezuka]].
** Episode 3 features [[VideoGame/GoldenAxe a little thief walk by, pausing and looking around before Wallow kicks him and meat falls from his bag]].
** "Lavarinth" includes a [[spoiler: time-travelling]] character who [[Series/QuantumLeap repeatedly speaks to a hologram sidekick only they can see or hear, who is later shown disappearing through a doorway of light.]]
** Issue three of the comic had [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy the Warrior's spaceship, a giant whale, land on the clown planet along with a potted plant.]]
** Beth's appearance as a kid in "Cereal Master" is based off Gertie from ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial''.
*** The opening of that episode references the repeated off world colony ad from ''Film/BladeRunner''.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Beth, since Plum is not a regular cast member. Beth even lampshades it when they lose their memories at one point, saying her role on the team is just being the girl.
** Though this is subverted in the comic series since Plum makes more regular appearances.
* SplitPersonality: Plum.
* StealthHiBye: The Emotion Lord. He frequently pops up and leaves without expectation.
* SpeakingSimlish: The team speaks random gibberish in "Sugarbellies" [[spoiler: until it's revealed that the whole episode was a plot to reverse said impediment.]]
* SubvertedKidsShow: While the original short is for kids, the internet series is confirmed to be a bit raunchier (think ''Adventure Time'' with no censors). Not surprising considering it's on a channel called ''Cartoon Hangover''.
-->'''Beth:''' Come on, [[FishPeople Plum]]. [[AllMenArePerverts Let's hang out in my room]] [[AllMenAreRapists before we get pregnant.]]
-->(from Butter Lettuce) '''Wallow''': See that? This'll take hella fortnights. And you'll get prolapsed anus from sittin' there all day. AND I WON'T LET THAT HAPPEN! GO, FALCON AXE!!
** Other examples include casual swearing, Aversion of NeverSayDie, and even in the first episode, Wallow having a sentient male AI in his left glove that is [[ClingyJealousGirl clingy and jealous]].
* TemporalParadox: This is mentioned more than once as a danger that can be caused by time travel, though the Emotion Lord maintains that creating a [[{{Pun}} Temporal Pair-a-socks]] is far worse.
* TickleTorture: The monster in the original short does this.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Butter lettuce to Beth apparently.
** Soft tacos in general for the Warriors seem to come up fairly often.
* TookALevelInKindness: The original pilot has Wallow and Danny be almost interchangable {{Jerkass}}es to Chris, but in the show proper they're much more mellow and well rounded.
* TheUnintelligible: Everyone was this in the majority of "Sugarbellies" because the planets of the aliens asking for help were not align.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: The Warriors seems to be pretty blase about Catbug constantly zapping in and out of their dimension.
* VocalDissonance: One hideous, slime-oozing, fang-mouthed alien newscaster has a very pleasant-sounding female voice.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: Happens in "Butter Lettuce", when Wallow makes the Beth hologram 9000% sexier which is so hideous it makes Danny vomit.
** In "Dan Before Time", when Danny was a kid, a bully hacker stole his dad's garage door opener remote and hacked it to make Danny vomit anytime he presses the button on the remote.
** This happens again in "Catbug". Danny vomits a lot.
* WhamEpisode: "Lavarinth". [[spoiler: The Emotion Lord is revealed to be an older version of Chris from 184 years in the future]].
* WhipItGood: Beth's Cat Lashes. [[VisualPun A cat o' nine tails made of cats]].

-->(from Butter Lettuce) '''Wallow''': See that? This'll take hella fortnights. And you'll get prolapsed anus from sittin' there all day. AND I WON'T LET THAT HAPPEN! GO, FALCON AXE!!
** Other examples include casual swearing, Aversion of NeverSayDie, and even in the first episode, Wallow having a sentient male AI in his left glove that is [[ClingyJealousGirl clingy and jealous]].
* TemporalParadox: This is mentioned more than once as a danger that can be caused by time travel, though the Emotion Lord maintains that creating a [[{{Pun}} Temporal Pair-a-socks]] is far worse.
* TickleTorture: The monster in the original short does this.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Butter lettuce to Beth apparently.
** Soft tacos in general for the Warriors seem to come up fairly often.
* TookALevelInKindness: The original pilot has Wallow and Danny be almost interchangable {{Jerkass}}es to Chris, but in the show proper they're much more mellow and well rounded.
* TheUnintelligible: Everyone was this in the majority of "Sugarbellies" because the planets of the aliens asking for help were not align.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: The Warriors seems to be pretty blase about Catbug constantly zapping in and out of their dimension.
* VocalDissonance: One hideous, slime-oozing, fang-mouthed alien newscaster has a very pleasant-sounding female voice.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: Happens in "Butter Lettuce", when Wallow makes the Beth hologram 9000% sexier which is so hideous it makes Danny vomit.
** In "Dan Before Time", when Danny was a kid, a bully hacker stole his dad's garage door opener remote and hacked it to make Danny vomit anytime he presses the button on the remote.
** This happens again in "Catbug". Danny vomits a lot.
* WhamEpisode: "Lavarinth". [[spoiler: The Emotion Lord is revealed to be an older version of Chris from 184 years in the future]].
* WhipItGood: Beth's Cat Lashes. [[VisualPun A cat o' nine tails made of cats]].

** This troper believes it was simply two different reactions to Chris "magically" appearing in their world. One group viewed him as a divine being, the other group as a creature of black magic.

* BlessedWithSuck: Subverted. In "Lavarinth", the emotion lord "grants" the team's opponents the ability to read their minds, much to the chagrin of the team. [[spoiler: Fortunately, they all become friends because of said power. Sorta.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SpeakingSimlish: The team speaks random gibberish in "Sugarbellies" [[spoiler: until it's revealed that the whole episode was a plot to reverse said impediment.]]

-->'''Wallow:''' You fools are meant to be together. Like, all in a soft rock, soul mates, and puberty kinda way. Everybody knows it.

* EarlyBirdCameo: Plum was featured in the comic as the fifth member far before she appeared in the cartoon. Also in issue three of the comic, the New Miami Hackers were mentioned by name before they appeared in the eight episode.

* DivideByZero: In "Butter Lettuce" Wallow's attempt to make the Beth hologram 9000% sexier instead turns her into a flatulent blob.
