''Dramatic Hearts'' is a {{Machinima}} WebAnimation of the AffectionateParody variety, based (''very'' loosely) on the story of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''. The series, which started shortly after the game's Japanese release in December of 2005, is essentially composed of edited cutscenes in the original Japanese with different subtitles that tell a story of their own. Most famous as a radical case of RefugeInAudacity / VulgarHumor, just about any filthy, racy, Not-Suitable-For-Children subject matter you could think of is elaborated on, and frequently.

The new story is centered around a young boy named Luke--wielder of the mighty Dildo Blade--and his friends Ronaldo and Poofy, as they travel about saving the world from Negro Slaves, the Jackson family, and a dastardly and mysterious order of Jewish Bankers, among many other assorted villains and wackos.

The main series itself had three "seasons", with the occasional special episode here and there. A fourth (and "final") season was planned, and would have presumably been made entirely with ''TheBouncer'' cutscenes, but it was scrapped for unknown reasons after the first episode was posted online in Summer of 2006. Later on, after the ''RE: Chain of Memories'' was released, another series, called ''Dramatic Hearts XD'', was produced. So far there has been no word on whether any plans exist to expand the series further with scenes from ''358/2 Days'' or ''Birth By Sleep''.

This series contains examples of:

* AerithAndBob: Some characters' names are based on the KH character's name, but the rest come from a wide variety of places, which means we have Luke, Andrew, and Joanna in the same world as Mansex, Hardon, Malifacent (sic), and Dickey.
* AnimateInanimateObject: Sort of. Apparently, [[strike: Namine]] Betty is a book who murdered Austin's mother and [[{{Squick}} is wearing her skin]]. Also, Malifacent is a living door. Yes, really.
** CargoShip
* AnythingThatMoves: A lot of characters, but especially [[strike: Olette]] Onit.
-->'''Tom''': "So you did...?"
-->'''Onit''': "Everyone here."
* AppliedPhlebotinum: [[spoiler: Brandon's]] "Originalization" beam.
* BigBad: [[spoiler: Mansex, leader of the clan of Jewish Bankers.]]
* BlackComedyRape: Poor BHK!Luke, always getting raped and nobody seems to care all that much.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: "I can't see the subtitles!"
* ChristmasSpecial: The two-part special entitled "The Best Kwanzaa Ever", in which the racial humor is taken UpToEleven.
* DepravedHomosexual: Sephiroth, Mansex.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: A variety based on sexual deviancy: In the special "Showdown of Sexiness", when [[strike:Tifa]] Titties tells Sephiroth she's done a Cleveland Steamer, [[DepravedHomosexual Sephiroth]] calls that (with a completely straight face thanks to game engine graphics) completely disgusting and says that not even he would do that shit.
* FandomNod: Xemnas' ''Dramatic'' counterpart being named Mansex is not only a very appropriate anagram given the nature of the series and character, but also a ShoutOut to those who use it as a FanNickname for Xemnas. Likewise with the "Luke" of season 1, who is later referred to as BHK for similar reasons.
* FreudianExcuse: Mansex's reason for wanting to [[spoiler: destroy all yuri? His "horrible" mother was a lesbian.]]
* FunWithSubtitles: Of course.
* GagSub: The modus operandi of the series.
* GenreSavvy: Mansex.
-->"According to the evil villain code book, I'm required to fight you one last time..."
* IdiotHero: Luke
* JerkAss: Pretty much [[CrapsackWorld everyone.]]
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: "This town's really fucked up".
** In fact, every time a character actually points out how fucked up everything in this series is, it probably counts.
* MediumAwareness: Numerous times. Among them, Luke gets teary-eyed when "Dearly Beloved" starts playing at the end of Episode 2x02.
* MrExposition: Father Porn
* PowerTrio: As with their game counterparts: Luke, Ronaldo, and Poofy.
* PublicServiceAnnouncement: One of the specials is a PSA that essentially exists as a big TakeThat to every single perceived ''Dramatic Hearts'' rip-off on Youtube.
* PunnyName: King Dickey, Handsome
* RealSongThemeTune: "Rewrite" by Asian Kung-Fu Generation is the opening theme tune to Season 2.
* RefugeInAudacity
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: In-story.
* SeinfeldianConversation: Handsome and DIZ talking about ''{{Lost}}'' in the first season.
* SoundtrackDissonance: Thanks to the series' practice of using the raw cutscenes from the game. Most notable in Episode 3x08 when Mansex's line "Next you'll say your dick feels like corn" is met with operatic fervor by "Darkness of the Unknown".
* SpaceWhaleAesop: Not quite, but close--the description for Episode 08 presents the following moral quandaries: "Is it wrong to call a black man a crook if he stole from you? Is that racist? What if he was invisible and only you could see him?"
* SpySpeak: King [[strike:Mickey]] Dickey in Episode 2x02.
-->"You must keep quiet. Remember the code word! Waffles."
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial:
-->'''Luke''': ''(waking up)'' What happened?
-->'''Fuu''': Nothing.
-->'''Rai''': We didn't put you in a dress.
* TemptingFate: "If there is a God let him kill me with a rock!" Made all the more hilarious if you played ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' first and know what happens later in the scene...
* TitleDrop: Frequently from Episode 1x12 on, after it is revealed that [[spoiler: Dramatic Hearts is the name of the Yuri channel DIZ and Handsome are determined to create.]]
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist
* UpToEleven: The already over-the-top nature of the sexual humor is taken to new extremes in the special episodes "Showdown of Sexiness" and "Insert Title Here".
** The two-part "Best Kwanzaa Ever" episode does the same for the racial humor.
