''In a time long ago, in a place far away... there was a man who stood up to injustice... but few know of his humble [[YouMakeMeSic beginnings]]... this is that story... the story of... [[TitleDrop Reynaldo the Assassin!]]''
-> TheNarrator

''ReynaldoTheAssassin'' is a 25-part {{machinima}} series based on ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind.'' Made by a single college student working from his basement in his spare time, it chronicles the story of Reynaldo, a young man who discovers that he is the bastard son of an assassin. Reynaldo sets out to find the father he never met, and begins a series of strange quests (which turn out to be [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "A complete waste of time, effort, and demon magic."]])

Reynaldo finds his dad, who then sends him on a series of training missions to become an assassin. Rey's dad also teaches Rey how to summon a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demonic sidekick]], a DeadpanSnarker "lesser demonoid of the subtype Scampus" whom he names Lil' Rey.

Though the [[LimitedAnimation characters hardly ever move except off-screen]] and the creator Oneclipleft is TalkingToHimself throughout the whole thing, the series manages to be quite funny due largely to the wacky characterizations.

''This series provides examples of'':

* {{Asspull}} - Come on, Onclipleft. An army of robots? Really?
* BigNo - [[spoiler:Reynaldo, after realizing he killed Lil' Rey.]]
* BlackComedy - Way. Seriously, at one point [[spoiler:Reynaldo kills his best friend]], and this is ''played for laughs.'' And, '''it works!'''
** It helps that DeathIsCheap
** Let's not forget that Reynaldo is a HitmanWithAHeart with a demonic familiar, and they fight alongside pirates in a gang war!
* BrainwashedAndCrazy - [[spoiler:The Thief guildmaster brainwashes Reynaldo using "hypnotic frequencies" from his helmet's built-in-radio to kill all of Rey's TrueCompanions.]]
* CrackFic
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass - Reynaldo
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon - "I will carve them each like Thanksgiving turkeys. In fact, I'll carve them into the shape of a Thanksgiving turkey!"
* DeathIsCheap - What with those "Get out of the [[TheNothingAfterDeath Abyss]] free." cards that the afterlife commitee keeps handing out.
* DemBones - DemBones talk, by the way. They talk entirely in [[HurricaneOfPuns bone-related puns.]]
* FanFiction - Falls firmly in "CrackFic" territory.
** Even crackier is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnAGFYFn1vE the so called "lost episode"]], which is a FanFiction of ''ReynaldoTheAssassin.'' So, a fanfiction of a fanficiton.
* HitmanWithAHeart - Reynaldo and his dad.
* HurricaneOfPuns - In one episode, Reynaldo and Lil' Rey encounter [[DemBones a talking skeleton.]] Bone jokes ensue.
* InsultBackfire - The Thieves' Guild master is quite pleased when Reynaldo calls him demented.
* {{Ninja}}
** '''Reynaldo:''' There's a Ninjas' Guild?
** '''Assassin Boss:''' Yes. And if you're thinking of joining them because you think [[RuleOfCool they're cooler]], then we'll assassinate the crap out of you.
* NoFourthWall - Justified. Reynaldo has a bizzare dream in episode 3 that literally causes the fourth wall to break (with a loud crashing sound), and it never ends up getting fixed.
* GainaxEnding - One gets the impression that Oneclipleft approached the final episode with a "Let's get this over with" mentality.
* {{Hammerspace}} - Reynaldo's sword just sort of comes out of nowhere during fight scenes, then dissapears.
* LampshadeHanging - and lots of it.
* {{Machinima}}
* ManchurianAgent - [[spoiler:Reynaldo]]
* NonHumanSidekick - Lil' Rey
* OlderSidekick - "Lil' Rey" is thousands of years old.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent
* {{Pirates}}
* ThePlan - The master of the Thieves' Guild has Reynaldo sent out to exterminate the Ninjas' Guild, claiming that the latter have been taking all the former's clients. [[spoiler:It turns out he just wants the name.]]
* {{Portmanteau}} - Dadsassin (a dad who is an assassin) and swordsassin (an assassin with a sword)
* PostModern
* PropheticNames - According to Captain Pirate (first name Captain, last name Pirate), "I guess my parents just figured I would be a pirate captain."
* PsychoSidekick - Lil' Rey.
* SecretLegacy - Reynaldo spent most of his life not knowing who his real dad (a professional assassin) was.
* SmallAnnoyingCreature - The Pack Rat
* SnarkyNonHumanSidekick - Lil' Rey
* TalkingAnimal - The Pack Rat
* TalkingToHimself - Every single character (even the females) is played by Oneclipleft.
* TheDragon - ''Reynaldo himself'' in Season 2.
* TheFool - Lampshaded. After the ninjas fail to teach Reynaldo any new fighting techniques, they note that he is retarded--but that he can still beat them due to his incredable luck.
* TheImp - Lil' Rey
* TheObiWan - Reynaldo's dad, though he never actually dies.
* TheNothingAfterDeath - And yes, this is [[BlackComedy played for laughs.]]
** Unless you die on the open sea, in which case you go to Davey Jones's Hand-Crafted Mahogany Cabinet built especially for Davey Jones by the Finest Craftsmen of the East. Davey Jones had style, laddie.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything - Actually averted with Reynaldo himself, who does indeed assassinate people. And the pirates, who really do plunder ships. The ninjas, however, don't do anything. They just "hang out and talk about movies and blay bingo. That kind of stuff."
* VagueAge - Reynaldo. He is going on a Hero's Journey, and is just leaving home for the first time in Episode 1, yet he's also bald and looks somewhat weathered.
* YouDoNotWantToKnow
* YoureInsane
