->''"It's time for me to live up to my family name and face [[TitleDrop FULL LIFE CONSEQUENCES!]]"''
-->-- '''John Freeman'''

What began as an innocent {{fanfiction}} titled ''VideoGame/HalfLife: Full Life Consequences'' (by an allegedly nine-year-old kid with the handle squirrelking) was turned into [[SoBadItsGood something great]] as soon as a {{YTMND}} user found it. In mockery, he did a dramatic reading of the story, and a legend was born.

Naturally, seeing that squirrelking had created other fanfics, most notably in the same storyline, other YTMND users had a crack at the dramatic reading thing. Over time, these narrations were turned into [[http://vegeta897.deviantart.com/art/HL-FLC-Part-1-61174719 animations]], but the most impressive series of animations came from machinima artist [[http://www.youtube.com/user/djy1991 djy1991]] using Garry's Mod. Thus begins the most famous telling of John Freeman's story.

The first half of the saga tells the story of Gordon Freeman's brother, John Freeman, [[JumpedAtTheCall who rushes from his job]] to rescue Gordon Freeman in Ravenhol[[strike:d]]m. The second half, entitled "Hero Beggining [[YouMakeMeSic [sic]]]", takes places some time later, during which the Combine have succeeded in conquering the [[strike:human]] humen race. Henry Freeman takes it upon himself to continue the legacy and lead the resistance against the Combines.

These videos make up the most popular adaptation of the ''Full Life Consequences'' saga, each having been featured on numerous gaming websites. They combine dramatic readings performed by other users and music from the album ''Production Music from [[RenAndStimpy Ren & Stimpy]]'', creating a distinct SoundtrackDissonance. The first video combined the low audio quality of the narration and the upbeat music to create an old-time radio drama feel. Subsequent videos strayed from this design for more straightforward presentation. Several line readings from it have been adapted into not one, but two surprisingly awesome and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCuLpdg9aIk well made]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Po_v4jXZaD8 Drum and Bass]] [[note]]The download link provided in the second video is down due to Renard's web address change. Fortunately, the track and others can still be downloaded in the album "The Best! The Best!" at their {{Bandcamp}} [[http://lapfoxtrax.com/ here.]] (It's linked at the top, under the button "32 FREE OLD ALBUMS"). [[/note]] tracks by a professional DJ known as [[Creator/LapfoxTrax Renard]] (under the alias "Furries in a Blender"), neither of which would sound out of place at a rave.

''Full Life Consequences'' was sufficiently popular to inspire a LiveActionAdaptation; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5HmujaPtKI see the results for yourself.]] There was also a few {{animated adaptation}}s of the first chapter, [[http://vegeta897.deviantart.com/art/HL-FLC-Part-1-61174719 a Flash animation]] one by Vegeta897, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gk9QYnVw6oc another]] by amazingtrout. The latter uses a very similar formula to Djy1991's machinima, and both actually ''[[OlderThanTheyThink predate ]]''[[OlderThanTheyThink it by at least half a year]], although you probably wouldn't tell from the Website/{{Youtube}} comments.

Solo machinimator Gaz6231 released alternative adaptations of the ''Hero Beggining'' chapters several weeks before the Djy1991 versions. They take a very different style than the above adaptations, favoring intentional NarmCharm and increased body animation over jovial mockery and lip movement. Gaz6231 himself describes it as "the Creator/MartinScorsese to their Creator/MichaelBay". While the ''Hero Beggining'' video is [[SpecialEffectsFailure clearly Gaz6231's first work]], the ''Free Man'' video is [[GrowTheBeard much more polished and has earned its own following]]. Also unlike the Icton Entertainment videos, all animation, editing, and voices are created by one man. [[BrokenBase There is a bitter dispute as to which series is better]], especially in the case of ''Free Man''.

Tropers/ManWithoutABody did a straight-up reading with very little visual component but loads of [[LargeHam ham]], which can be found right [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OleqvzDNGxY here]].

Tropers/{{Seaport}} wrote a "serious" version of the fic, as [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4067416/1/Doom_Repercussions_of_Evil_Mark_II further]] proof of the FictionIdentityPostulate, which can be found [[http://fav.me/d4w1wuo here]].

Other machinmas and dramatic readings of the various chapters exist, but [[SturgeonsLaw few of them have the notability of the above authors.]]

Compare ''Fanfic/DoomRepercussionsOfEvil''. And Creator/PeterChimaera's other fic, ''FanFic/QuarterLifeHalfwayToDestruction''. Although it may well be [[FollowTheLeader a cash in]] on Full Life Consequences, it is amazing in that he only wrote it after [[Wiki/{{Uncyclopedia}} Uncycylopedia]], an online encyclopedia like Wiki/{{Wikiped|ia}} said he was writing it and decided 'Yeh, ok' and the BigBad's evil plot is to destroy Dallas.

One fan wrote a fic called, "[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5235619/1/QuarterLife_Origin_of_Doom Quarter Life: Origin of Doom]]", which ties the Quarter Life and Full Life series together. It too, got the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8G04fz2JxsM machinima treatment]].

[[spoiler:[[http://web.archive.org/web/20090909011140/http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3196540 It eventually turned out to be written by Mattimer, one of the greatest trolls of our time.]]]]

!!The original writings provide examples of:

* AlasPoorVillain - In-universe "John Freeman felt sorry for them becaus they couldnt live there anymore because they were zombie goasts so he blew up the house and killed the zombie goasts [[MercyKill so they were at piece]]."

* AliensAreBastards - The Combines hate "humens" for no apparent reason.
* ActionFilmQuietDramaScene - The death of Gordon Freeman.
* {{Asspull}} - The characters have an uncanny tendency to find wepon on the ground just before entering a battle zone.
** John Freeman put the laser gun on his motorcycle and his machine gun and his rocket gun that he found on the side of the motorcycle.
*** And also, when John Freeman is stopped by the headcrab zombie police officer, he's able to shoot him in the head with something, despite apparently not having a wepon until he gets to Ravenholdm.
* AttackItsWeakPoint - "The next boss was laughing at John Freeman so John Freeman said '[[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu YOU WILL NOT LAUGH AT ME!]]' and shot a rocket at him since that was his weakness."
** [[StuffBlowingUp Large explosives]] are perhaps one of the most common weaknesses among... things made of matter.
* AuthorAppeal: Motorcycles and doing backflips.
* AuthorCatchphrase - Doing "what has to be done" is a common theme of squirrelking's protagonists.
* AttackAttackAttack - Some of the rebels get killed during the uprising but they keep on going because they have to [[InnocentInnuendo do it.]]
* BackFromTheDead - [[spoiler:Gordon Freeman.]]
* BadassBiker - John Freeman
* BadassFamily - The Freemans.

* [[DarkerAndEdgier Darker And Scarrier]] - The second arc involves the future of the [[strike:human]] humen race, unlike the first arc that mainly revolved on revenge. The main threat of the first two chapters were the bosses and the zombie goasts, which are nowhere to be seen in the second half of the saga spearheaded by the takeover of the Combines. Not to mention heavy casualties on both sides given in detail.
* DecoyProtagonist - Hero Beggining, the next-to-last part of the FLC series, follows Henry Freeman shoting at Combines, throwing stiders with gravity guns, and eventually climaxing with [[spoiler:John Freeman's appearance (out of a portal ''in the sky'') yelling [[WhamLine "Combines leave my son alone."]]]]
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment
** It's a good day to do what has to be done by me and help my brother to defeat the enemys.
** John Freeman loked back and saw Gordon get steppd on by the next boss and he was mad and angry.
** John Freeman drove in and did another flip n jumped off his motorbike and the motor bike took out some headcrab zombies infront of John Freeman.

** John Freeman walked to wards Combines and made fists with hands.
** "Zombie goasts."
** "''Dead'' zombie goasts."
* {{Determinator}} - [[spoiler:John Freeman braved the Combines' assault of [[strike:machine]] masheen guns and '''rockets''' to try to disable the tower and save [[strike:mankind]] humenkind. At one point, John Freeman is backstabbed by a Combine, but not only does this fail to slow him, but John Freeman [[LodgedBladeRecycling pulls the nife out]] and [[strike:brains]] ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome branes the Combine with it]]''.]]
** ...One rocket hit [[spoiler:John Freeman]] but he got up... Yes, very determined.
* DeusExMachina - At the end of ''Hero Beginning'' and at the start of ''Free Man'', [[spoiler: John Freeman [[strike:pops out from a portal]] '''backflips''' out of the sky to tell the Combines to leave [[LukeIAmYourFather his son]] alone.]]
* DiabolusExMachina - After killing the final boss, the "next boss" appears out of nowhere and step on Gordon Freeman.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu - Gordon Freeman kills the final boss by punching it in the face. No really.
** After being shot ''by'' bullets in the eye from '''teh gun''' by John Freeman, mind you.
* DisSimile - "Combines were robot things that werent robots..."
* DownerEnding - At the end of ''Full Life Consequences'', Gordon Freeman is [[DroppedABridgeOnHim killed immediately]] [[ShootTheShaggyDog after John Freeman rescues him.]] At the end of ''What Has Tobe Done'', he is reanimated as a zombie goast. [[spoiler:The ''Hero Beggining'' arc reverses this.]]
* DyingAsYourself - In his final moments, [[spoiler:Gordon Freeman is free of both the Combine "science" in him and the headcrab]].
* {{Engrish}} - The author says he started speaking English a short time ago in his profile. This shows a '''lot'''.
* EpisodeTitleCard: Always consisting of official Half-Life artwork with John Freeman's head taped onto Gordon's body (and Henry Freeman's head taped onto Alyx's body when he appears.) Quarter-Life parodies this by having Gordon's head taped onto his own body.
* EverybodyLaughsEnding - Subverted. "The laughed overed quickly" when John and Gordon were attacked by the next boss.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep, UnnamedParent: Henry Freeman's mother, [[spoiler: John Freeman's wife]].
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Lots of backflips happen throughout the fic.
* FacingTheBulletsOneLiner - Played with in that [[spoiler:Henry Freeman's mother delivers her last message to her son ''after'' her head was shot off.]]
* FinalBoss - The ([[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil not so]]) aptly named BigBad of the first chapter.
* ForTheEvulz - The Combines beat the humen girl in the street and [[spoiler:kill Henry Freeman's mother]] for no apparent reason, other than the fact that [[spoiler:Mom]] and the girl were humen and the Combine were [[AlwaysChaoticEvil evil]] Combines from science and outer space and hate humens.
* {{Foreshadowing}} - Henry Freeman mentions the family name, but if it wasn't obvious at ''that'' point...
* FriendToAllLivingThings: John Freeman notices a nest of eggs on the ground after cutting down a tree and puts them "back home safe."
** He is even a friend to non-living things, as he feels bad about killing the zombie goasts.

* GiantFootOfStomping - The next boss's means of attack.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere - the Next Boss in the first series.
* [[GoOutWithASmile Go Out With Smiles On Face]] - [[spoiler: Gordon Freeman]]

* [[spoiler: TheHeroDies]]
* HeroicSacrifice - Gordon Freeman warns John Freeman to flee just before he's crushed by the [[TrueFinalBoss "next boss"]].
** Also, [[spoiler:John Freeman in ''Free Man''. "John Freeman, Saver of Humens". * sniff* ]]
%comment%* - [[spoiler:"John Freeman [kicked] Gordon Freeman...The science flew off Gordon Freemans face and landed and blowed up in a boom...." Yes, John Freeman beat the science out of Gordon Freeman to save him, whatever that means.]]
%comment%** Apparently, "science" is supposed to refer to [[spoiler:the Combine implants that Gordon Freeman received]], although if that were true, [[spoiler:''kicking them off'']] wouldn't make sense either.
%comment%** And John Freeman shoots at the final boss with some bullets that in turn shoot the final boss in the eye.
* [[HopeSpot Hop Spot]]: In Hero Beggining, humenkind seems to be winning, only for more Combine to come, and surround them. [[spoiler: Subverted by the fact John Freeman comes afterward.]]
* [[IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight "I Kno You ARe In There Somewhere Bro" fight]] - [[spoiler:John Freeman vs. Gordon Freeman]]
* ImprobableAimingSkills - Averted. The [[LaResistance Resistance]] [[RedShirtArmy Army]] led by Henry Freeman is described as successfully hitting Combine troops "sometimes". That would make sense, seeing as how they were more of a mob that suddenly acquired [[strike:armaments]] wepons.
* InNameOnly: The only character from the actual ''Half-Life'' games it features is [[HeroicMime Gordon Freeman]], and its connection to the games' canon seems generally pretty specious (the Combines and zombie goasts of the fics seem pretty different from the ones in the games).
* JumpedAtTheCall - Gordon Freeman's email was all it took for John Freeman to abandon his workplace to go fight bosses.
* KidHero - Henry Freeman (implied)
* LaResistance - Henry Freeman leads a mass insurrection in the third chapter to liberate humenkind, giving them hop!
* LamarckWasRight - John Freeman and Henry Freeman either have a knack for acrobatics and combatting unconventional enemies or got their skills the same way Gordon Freeman got them.
* LargeHam - John Freeman has no qualm with announcing his intentions to kill an evil boss at the top of lungs. Also when he addresses the zombie goasts in ''What Has Tobe Done:''
-->'''John Freeman.''' Zombie goasts, I have killed your friends at the old house and I don't want to shoot your heads. [[LastSecondChance Move near the countrysides and you will be friends of John Freeman!]]
* LastStand - In ''Free Man'', [[spoiler:John Freeman]] realizes that stopping the tower's activation is impossible, so he sends the humens off and stays to keep the Combines at bay as the humens escape.
* LateArrivalSpoiler - Averted. ''Hero Beggining'' was not titled as part of the ''Full Life Consequences'' saga to hide [[spoiler:John Freeman's surprise appearance at the end and his subsequent role in the final chapter, which restored the label.]]
* LightningBruiser - John Freeman does everything fast, but don't think he's a FragileSpeedster. See MadeOfIron, below.
* MadeOfIron - While fighting the Combines in ''Free Man'', [[spoiler:John Freeman is hit by a rocket, backstabbed, and shot with [[strike:machine]] masheen gun fire, yet carries on fighting.]]
** There is some credence to this in that, in the Half-Life game universe, a character with full health and armor can take a whole lot of punishment, especially on lower difficulty settings.
* MoeGreeneSpecial - Performed by John Freeman on the final boss.
* MoreDakka - John Freeman loads up with a laser gun, a machine gun and a "rocket gun" for his second journey to Ravenholdm.
** Subverted in ''Free Man'': [[spoiler:John Freeman, needing to "kill fast" suddenly decides that "bullets too slow", so he drops his wepon and proceeds to kill the Combines in his way with his [[strike:bare]] bear hands.]]
* NeckSnap - In ''Free Man'', there's mention of John Freeman ''barking'' necks as he kills Combines with his bear hands.
* NegativeContinuity - It's noted that John Freeman doesn't have a weapon. This doesn't stop him from shooting the headcrab-possessed police officer a few lines later. [[spoiler:Freeman also dies by getting stomped on by a boss, but in the next story, he got headcrabbed.]]
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot - Zombie goasts. Zombies that are also [[OurGhostsAreDifferent "goasts"]].
* NoKillLikeOverkill - When he encounters zombie goasts for the second time, John Freeman shoots them before running off to face his real enemy. When the zombie goasts taunt him, he then turns back, laughs at them and rockets them. Even though they're already dead.
** Well they're zombie goasts. They've already been dead at least two times over.
*** ThirdTimesTheCharm.
* NonindicativeName - The final boss. It isn't actually the last boss.
* NotAfraidOfYouAnymore - In ''Hero Beggining'', Henry tells the Combine that the humen race is "not scarred no more"
* OurFounder - At the end of ''Free Man'', [[spoiler:Henry Freeman is elected president and a statue of John Freeman is erected in the new city.]]
* PapaWolf - [[spoiler:John Freeman]]
* PlotHole - John Freeman is able to shoot the Headcrab Officer in the head, despite not having we'''a'''pon.
* PoliceAreUseless - The only authority figure to ever appear in the entire saga is a lone police officer. Who is headcrab zombie.
** Then again, he was manning his speed trap even after becoming a headcrab zombie. That's a dedicated police officer right there.
* PreAssKickingOneLiner - Gordon Freeman said "its time to end this '''''ones and for all!'''''"
** "I have to kill fast, and ''bullets too slow."''
* [[PrepareToDie Prepair To Die]] - The Dark Man said.
* [[RunDontWalk Walk Fast]] - The word "run" is sometimes spoken but never actually done in the first two chapters.
** John Freeman has two speeds: "Walk fast", and "backflip".
*** He frontflipped one time too.
*** Don't forget the time when he walked slow like a turtle.
* RecursiveAmmo - John Freeman shoots bullets from the gun, and then the bullets shoot the final boss.
* {{Retcon}} - At the end of ''What Has Tobe Done'', [[spoiler:Gordon Freeman becomes zombie goast. When he retells this to John Freeman in ''Free Man'', he says that he became headcrab zombie. Mind you, he ''did'' get turned into zombie goast by headcrab...]]
* TheReveal - [[SincerityMode In possibly the best twist to ever grace poorly written fan fiction]], the last line of ''Hero Beggining'' reveals [[spoiler:John Freeman to be the father of Henry Freeman]].
* [[RockBeatsLaser Rock Beats Lazers]] - In ''Hero Beggining'', the humen were wining against the lazers gun-equipped Combine despite having to rely on rocks as wepon.
** It may have meant to say "rockets". But with squirrelking, you can never be sure.
*** Then again, he said "rackets" instead of rockets in ''Free Man''...
* RougeAnglesOfSatin - In ''droves''.
* SacrificialLamb - [[spoiler: Henry Freeman's mom.]]
* ScienceIsBad - The Combines came from "science and [[strike:outer]] outter space" to enslave humens.
** Combine "science" in [[spoiler:Gordon Freeman]] turns him evil.
*** Oddly enough, it's a tangible object, like it is in Fanfic/LightAndDarkTheAdventuresOfDarkYagami, but it's unclear what it is exactly (The Djy version has it as a Metrocop mask, while the GAZ version has it as a cybernetic eye).
**** [[spoiler: Gordon Freeman]]'(a scientist)' is actually a hero. It seems like only Combine science is bad and made you tricked, bro.
* SelfDestructMechanism - The button the Dark Man pushes that makes the tower start glowing and eventually [[strike:explode]] explod.
* StealthParody - Some signs point to the series being one, such as squirrelking's writing actually becoming ''worse'' in the span of three years (See the Flanderisation entry above) and the usuage of [[MemeticMutation "Do a barrel roll!"]] in one of squirrelking's other fanfic, ''Halo: Halos in Space''.
** [[http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3196540 This]] Website/SomethingAwful thread confirms that it is.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge
-->'''The Dark Man:''' [[spoiler:Henry Freeman's Mom]] is shot in head.
* SupportingLeader - Henry Freeman.
* TeleportersAndTransporters - [[spoiler:"Gordon Freeman teleportaled to John Freeman and hit him with crow bar."]]
* TimeSkip - ''Hero Beggining'' starts an unspecified amount of time after ''What Has Tobe Done'', and some events in between, such as [[spoiler:John Freeman's marriage, the age of Henry Freeman and how John Freeman escaped zombie goast Gordon Freeman]] have not been clarified by the series' conclusion.
* TitleDrop:
** "its time for me to live up to my family name and face '''full life consequences'''"
** "Gordon Freeman is now these hands... i must kill the next boss and live up to '''full-life consequences'''!"
* TookALevelInBadass - Henry Freeman was a grown man who still lived with his mom. Then he became the leader of a rebellion against the Combines.
* TrollFic - The saga was suspected by some to be this, as squirrelking's spelling got ''worse'' with each story. [[spoiler:It was later confirmed to be as such as noted above.]]
** For example, "wepon" is initially a simple misspelling of a word that he usually manages to spell correctly. A few stories later, and "wepon" pops up in all of his stories, often with fanfare.
** Also, squirrelking uses the word "human" multiple times in ''Halo: Halos in Space''. Yet suddenly, when ''Hero Begginings'' turns around, they're "humens"!
* TropeOverdosed - Compare the length of the four fics combined to the length of this page.
* TrueFinalBoss - The "next boss" shows up immediately after the final boss fell.
* UnnamedParent - Henry Freeman's mother is only referred to as Mom [[spoiler:or Wife.]]
* VillainBall: Information about [[TrueFinalBoss The Next Boss']] weakness can be found on the internet. Be careful what you post on Facebook, Next Boss.
* VoiceOfTheLegion - A "big Combine army with lots of striders" collectively asks LaResistance what it plans to do. In a rare heroic example, the "people" later tell John Freeman they would rather fight than let him face the Combines by himself.
* WeHaveReserves: The humens send many people after the button in spite of some of them getting killed, only stopping when Combines come out of the "hug tower".
* [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman What Measure Is A Non Humen]] - John Freeman kills the zombie goasts and blows up their house.
** But he does it so the zombie goasts will be at [[IncrediblyLamePun piece]].
* WhamLine: In "Hero Beggining": [[spoiler:Combines leave my son alone!]]
* WeaksauceWeakness: As John Freeman found out on the internet, the next boss' weakness is rockets. Bullets fired from teh gun, lazer guns, masheen guns, crow bars, and other wepons just won't work on it.
* WordSaladTitle - The "full life consequences" are alluded to several times in the story but never explained in detail.
** This could be referring to [[spoiler:Gordon Freeman's death, and John Freeman's HeroicSacrifice.]]
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle - After John Freeman kills the BigBad of the second chapter, Gordon Freeman comes back to life as a zombie goast because "[he] got there slow".
** This may also be a CallBack to the original, where Gordon Freeman jokingly says to get there faster next time. Perhaps it's a FunnyAneurysmMoment in-universe.
* YouWillBeAssimilated - "You will be one of us!" yelled the dead zombie goasts.
** Also, in Free Man, [[spoiler:Combine Gordon Freeman plans to make John Freeman and Henry Freeman headcrab zombies.]]


!!The machinimas provide examples of:

* AdaptationExpansion - Djy1991's version of ''Free Man'' contains about seven minutes of entirely added-in carnage, wherein John Freeman meets and then kills a bunch of Combines, hijacks a bioflyer, ''throws a freight train'', meets [[RunningGag and then kills]] [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} GLaDOS]]...
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever - The next boss.
* BigDamnHeroes - [[spoiler:John Freeman]] in Hero Beggining.
* BigNo - Averted, Gordon's "NOO!" is quite small, especially in the dramatic reading.
** Played straight in ''Free Man'' when [[spoiler:Combine Gordon Freeman angers at John Freeman]] in the Gaz6231 version.
* BigRedButton - Which John Freeman pushes ''with his face''.
* BodyHorror - Tell me the sight of the [=Gmod=] models bending in ways that humen joints don't allow isn't creepy.
** It's ''hilarious''.
* BrickJoke - At the end of ''Free Man,'' we see many of the characters who died in the series as angels on their way to Heaven, including the pants that were dead in the first FLC.
* TheCameo - In the Djy1991 version of Free Man, [[spoiler:Spider-Man, the Sniper, Ronald [=McDonald=], The Dancing Banana, [[VideoGame/Left4Dead Bill, Zoey, Francis, and Louis]] and even Creator/{{BILLY MAYS}} appear for sight gags, there ought to be a list of Cameos, you know that?]]
** Characters from other Valve games are members of LaResistance.
** Also, I don't think all of them are sight gags, I think some of these cameos are rebels.
*** Also also, [[spoiler: [[Machinima/TheGModIdiotBox Dr. Hax]] near the end of the story. He isn't the final boss because only his head is big, and his eyes are intact.]]
**** Finally, also in Djy1991's Free Man, Gordon Freechman's [[spoiler:fellow scientist coww-orker Jimm]] and [[spoiler:bad guy from the game]] from his other half-life fanfic adaptation ''FanFic/QuarterLifeHalfwayToDestruction'' are seen [[spoiler:rising to heven]] with everyone else. And [[spoiler:bad guy from the game]] is still doing his [[spoiler:isotop holding pose]].
* {{Catchphrase}} - "It's time for me to live up to my family name!"
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower - John Freeman lifts a train of its tracks and throws it into a ravine with his bare hands. Not the engine, not one of the train cars, THE ENTIRE TRAIN.
* DancePartyEnding - The DJY adaptation of Free Man.
* TheDoorSlamsYou: John freeman knocks on a door. Gman kicks it open and sends John Freeman flying for hundreds of miles.
* [[EvenTheSubtitlerIsStumped Even The Narrator Is Stumped]] by "normal people close."
* EverythingFades: [[spoiler:Henry Freeman's mother]] in the Djy version.
* FingerTwitchingRevival - John Freeman after he crashes the dropship into the train in the DJY adaptation of Free Man.
* {{Flight}} - John Freeman, for little obvious reason.
* FoeTossingCharge
* FunnyBackgroundEvent - Loads in the Djy series, in fact they're popular in pretty much all [=GMod=] machinimas.
* GoForTheEye
* GunsAkimbo - John Freeman in the Djy adaptation.
* MustMakeAmends - John Freeman disturbs the eggs on a tree while test-firing the laser gun. He puts them back home safe, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny but the machinima disagrees.]]
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg - [[spoiler:"Save humens, and Henry Freeman!"]]
* MythologyGag - In Djy's adaptation of ''Free Man'', [[spoiler: after the world's peaceful]], Grigori appears next to a bear when they say the people and animals lived in peace, there's a reason that Grigori is described as an animal in the Adaptation: [[spoiler: It was a ThrowItIn gag in the original GarrysMod, where Grigori was placed as an animal rather than an ally, to be fair, [[CrazyAwesome it wasn't that far from the truth]]]].
* OffhandBackhand - Pay close attention at around 1:45 in the Gaz6321 version of Free Man; John Freeman gets off a headshot variation.
* PragmaticAdaptation - Two ways, the Djy machinima makes the whole thing comedic, given it's narm and misspelling, good for gags. The Gaz version of Free Man manages to pull of the drama and make certain scenes work.(but it's still pretty funny!)
* RuleOfCool- John Freeman seems especially fond of pulling off improbable motorcycle stunts (particularly of the backflip variety), especially if it kills zombies in the process.
* SerialEscalation - Even more visible in the Djy1991 adaptation of ''Free Man'', where, among other things, John Freeman '''''pile-drives a train'''''.
* ShoutOut - Watch the music video at the end of Djy's adaptation of Free Man until you get to "the birds and the sun was almost down from the top of the sky" and look at John Freeman's pose. Remind you of [[Series/KamenRiderKabuto a certain other God Mode Sue?]]
** A possible one is when the Combines are said to be "too strong and big", echoing a similar line from an infamous botched translation of Star Wars Episode III, known as "The Backstroke of the West".
* SpitTake - For Djy's video:
-->"''STOP THE HUMENS!''"
* StupidStatementDanceMix - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCuLpdg9aIk]]
** The Djy's version of ''Free Man'' includes a music video of it.
** WEPON! WEPON! WEWEPON PON WEPONWEPON!
* StylisticSuck - Some of the animations at the end of the Djy adaptation reveal that [=Gmod=] is capable of subtle and realistic movement -- but watching character mods flail around wildly is more funny and reflects the poor writing of the source material.
** Djy's version also invokes a bit of this - this is one of the few scenes where John Freeman's face doesn't contort sporadically.
* ThisIsMySide - [[spoiler:[=GLaDOS=] attempts to invoke this in Djy's version. Doesn't take.]]
* TubeTravel: How John Freeman gets into [[spoiler:[=GLaDOS=]'s chamber]] in Djy1991's version.
* UncannyFamilyResemblance - The Gaz6231 videos use the same model for [[spoiler:Henry Freeman and John Freeman]].
* VisualPun - The Gaz version has several of these.
** So does Djy's version.
** Gaz and Djy ''both'' do. Ex: '''''BEAR HANDS!'''''
** "The pants were dead."
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse - It isn't clear what happened to The Dark Man in the Gaz version of ''Free Man''.
** Lending evidence to the theory that he and [[spoiler:Gordon Freeman]] are the same.
* WimpFight - When Gordon fights the final boss in Djy's version, the Garry's Mod models just flail at each other.
* YeahShot: The Djy adaptation of ''Hero Beggining'' provides the current page image for that trope.
* YouMakeMeSic - Appears to be compulsory in any visual adaptation of fan fiction like this.
