* VocalEvolution: Xavier's voice is more of a direct parody of a MagicalNativeAmerican in the earlier episodes, but steadily becomes more lilting and atonal to fit with the ever-increasing MindScrew of the series.

Angel]]''''' [[DescribeTopicHere here]]?



Created by PFFR (the minds behind ''WonderShowzen'') for Creator/AdultSwim, ''Xavier: Renegade Angel'' is ostensibly about an angel defected from Heaven; good luck finding out what it's ''really'' about, though. The eponymous Xavier is either an actual fallen angel or just some sort of cosmic abomination that was abandoned at birth. Forced to WalkTheEarth because everyone hates him, Xavier tries to help people -- but at worst, he invents problems where none exist and causes tons of carnage, and at best, he somehow gets ''everyone'' to put aside their differences towards the common goal of ''beating him senseless''.

Probably the weirdest show Adult Swim has ever produced, the show was largely one huge MindScrew, with Xavier speaking in a near-continuous, stream-of-consciousness...well, ''stream'' of narrative/conversation/wisdom/puns/portmanteaux/"unintentional" double-entendre/callbacks. The show's only real narrative story is a ongoing subplot involving Xavier's incredibly screwed-up childhood and the death of his adoptive mother. Xavier was able to talk to himself as a child via a tear in the fabric of space-time, and this meeting caused Xavier's younger self to become a clingy freak of nature towards his apathetic adoptive mother, which drove her to drink and take pills to cope with life. Xavier convinces his younger self to switch his mother's pills with placebos, but just a few years later, Xavier tells his mom what he did; this causes her to think that she is hallucinating Xavier's existence. At this point, Xavier causes a fire to spread from the present into the past, which ends up killing his mother (since she believed the flames, like Xavier, were a mental hallucination).

''Xavier'' is uniquely abstract, showing concepts in a way that -- instead of using aspects such as plot -- creates connections in various patterns to prove a point. A good example is the episode "Signs From Godrilla"; this episode explores the aspects of choice and free will by using various themes, including recursion and mind/body dualism, to aid in its expression.

The show was animated in 3D with (some) motion-capture all done in {{CGI}}, which allowed for a vast range of [[UncannyValley strangeness]]; [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs it's all pretty damn trippy]], in any event. Do not take this as license to WatchItStoned: it might make more sense, but it's just as likely you'll be utterly terrified from the sensory overload. A third season was rumored to be in development after the second season's end, but those plans seem to have fallen through.
