* DynamicAkimbo: Parodied to an extreme with Arms Akimbo, whose arms are permanantly in this position due to his work as a model. One might well wonder how he manages to dress himself.

* CreatorProvincialism: In one episode Freakazoid finds himself traveling back in time. He winds up stopping the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and declares that he prevented WorldWarII, despite the fact that the attack only catalyzed the US entrance into the war, which had been going on for a couple years already by that point.

''Freakazoid!'' is a parody of the {{Superhero}} show, produced by the people who brought you ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' and the creators of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}},'' Creator/StevenSpielberg and Creator/WarnerBros Animation. It follows the adventures of Freakazoid, an entity created by the addition of [[HilariousInHindsight all the information on the Internet]] [[note]] This was back in 1995, so his head probably didn't explode thanks to the fact that hentai and {{Widget|Series}}s hadn't become synonymous with UsefulNotes/{{Japan}} yet. He probably just went insane from all the Usenet groups. [[/note]] to a mild mannered computer nerd, along with weird energy based powers and a goofy sense of humor. [[PostModernism It parodied, lampshaded, or subverted every trope of superheroics at the time.]] [[Creator/BobChipman MovieBob]] describes him as [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/the-big-picture/6335-The-Prophesy-of-Freakazoid "an anthropomorphic fusion of 4chan, TV Tropes, and I Can Haz Cheezburger years before any of those things existed."]]

** Also done in the "Freakazoid and Friends" musical number, which parodies the theme song to ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. The lyrics mention, among other things, that the show is very dumb and that it isn't doing very good in the ratings.
