** Lampshaded by Rusty. When he organizes an event for fans of hi adventures, he warns Hank and Dean not to tell them that he has children as the kids' heads would explode upon discovering he has had sex.

** King Gorilla trying and failing to rape the Monarch in prison (he proved unable to because The Monarch was too feminine for his tastes), even funnier as the Monarch also seemed disappointed. Even worse, King Gorilla was in prison because he "decapitated and sodomized" [[MotleyCrue Vince Neil]] on national television.

''The Venture Brothers'' (2003-present) is a cartoon series on Creator/AdultSwim[=/=]Creator/CartoonNetwork that focuses upon the lives and adventures of the Venture brothers (snarky Hank and brainy Dean) and their father, scientist/adventurer "Dr." Thaddeus "Rusty" Venture (who has grown bitter and abusive towards his own children due to his failure to live up to the legacy of his super-scientist father Jonas Venture, making him a sort of pulp version of a FormerChildStar). They are followed by their government issued bodyguards: first Brock Samson, an ex-black ops agent (described by arch-enemy the Monarch as a [[HeroicComedicSociopath "Swedish murder machine"]]) and then Sergeant Hatred, a former super-villain/recovering pedophile who was drafted by the military to replace Brock when he quit the job.

* GenreSavvy: Almost all of the cast is genre savvy, some (like #21 and #24) dangerously so. In other cases, such as Dean and Hank, they're genre savvy to the point of it interfering with their social lives.



* MauveShirt: #21 and #24. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] with that page's quote. By the season three episode "The Lepidoperists" they become DangerouslyGenreSavvy, though. [[spoiler:#24 has since died (probably) for violating one of the rules.]]

* PowerPerversionPotential: Orpheus's Master is a shape-shifter and [[GenreSavvy well aware]] of the benefits. First demonstrated when he takes the form of Cerberus and one of his three heads continuously licks his genitals, which he admits to loving (but he can also taste it, which is maddening). Then later when he takes the form of Catherine the Great's horse (a scene that was mostly cut, but is included in the DVD extras), and finally [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when he takes the form of Orpheus's surprisingly ''still hot'' ex-wife and claims he's going to jump rope naked in front of a mirror, in her body, after Orpheus leaves. "I mean would you look at these breasts? You could bounce a penis off these!"

* SkyFace: An episode featured Dr. Killenger's face in the sky at the end reciting Shakespeare's "all the world's a stage" monologue, followed by General Manhower laughing and telling us we can read all about it in the Bible. [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment It's entirely unprovoked and unexplained.]]

** Brock Samson himself: while his name is mostly meant to bring to mind "Race Bannon", he's an immensely strong guy with long hair, like the biblical Samson. The name "Brock" sounds like "brick" and "rock," and also means "badger," which all speak to his toughness. Finally, as Brock has been established as being of Swedish heritage, it's worth noting that Swedish surnames are (or were) often literal - "Johansson" means "son of Johan," "Swenson" means "son of Sven," and so on. This would make Brock Samson the "Son of Sam," a possible reference to David Berkowitz, the Son of Sam serial killer. Given Brock's over-the-top violent predilections, this seems quite fitting.

Also, given Brock's love of smoking, it's an interesting coincidence that both "Brock" and "Samson" are name brands for loose leaf tobacco.
