->'''C.C.''': I still don't follow any of this.
->'''Lelouch''': Look, it's really simple. I'm the son of the King of Britannia.
->'''C.C''': Then why are you in Japan?
-> '''Lelouch''': Let me break it down for you. Every nation belongs to one of three major Empires ([[FreezeFrameBonus Australia NO!]]): Britannia, The Chinese Federation, Britannia, Santa Mario, Kazakhstan ([[FreezeFrameBonus President: Nursultan Nazarbayev... Learning You Some Knowledge]]), [[RuleOfThree Britannia]], [[StarWars Alderaan]] (Not found), [[RunningGag Britannia]], [[VideoGame/StarFox Corneria]] and [[OverlyLongGag Britannia]] (shows picture of Earth).
-> '''C.C''': I don't even know why I bothered to ask.

''Code MENT'' is a relatively young ''Anime/CodeGeass'' Abridged Seri-er... abridge''ment'', created by [[http://www.youtube.com/user/purpleeyeswtf Purpleeyeswtf]] (also the creator of ''NonePiece''), and is one of the more bizarre abridged series out there. It combines standard abridging with faster-paced, non-sensical comedic editing to create a very unique flavor reminiscent of Monty-Python sketch comedies, but without censorship. ''Code MENT'' very loosely follows the actions in the original series--in general, while the events and outcomes are the same-ish, characterization and motivations are jettisoned for the sake of comedy, with all the characters acting considerably stupider and editing scenes from several episodes or other series into the continuity, creating a melting pot of insanity. The series is considered a "parody of a parody".

While it sounds wacky on paper (and is even wackier onscreen), purpleeyes is known to hold himself to high standards for a youtube abridger. The series is notable for purpleeyes's impressive voice-work (giving each character in a cast well known to contain LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters his or her own distinct voice), its fast paced humor, high-quality editing and excellent comedic timing.

Fifteen episodes so far (not counting the re-edits, of which there have been two [for episodes 10 and 13]): [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6BA3366BBC0ACDAC Watch it here]]. The non-canon "fifth" episode of ''NonePiece'' is also considered the equally non-canon episode 14.5 for ''CodeMent''.

Recently it has become another progenitor for a new wave of abridging series, just like little kuriboh, known as abridge'''MENT'''s, with distinctive voice actors, fast paced non-sequitur humor, heavy editing, and [[RefugeInAudacity pushing the envelope]] to it's [[CrossingTheLineTwice breaking point]]. So far, WebVideo/SupernaturalTheAnimationAbridged, [[InfiniteMENT Infinite Ment]] and [[WebVideo/MedakaMENT Medaka Ment]] follow the mold.

Now has a [[Characters/CodeMENT character page]] under construction.

Not to be confused with the other ''Anime/CodeGeass'' AbridgedSeries: ''WebVideo/CodeGeassTheAbridgedSeries''.
----
!!Tropes:
* TheAbridgedSeries: Erm, [[InsistentTerminology AbridgeMENT]].
* AbnormalAmmo: One decides that Kallen's idea is a fantastic idea: A gun that shoots another gun that in turn shoots "chainsaw bullets".
* AbusiveParents: The crazy woman in the park from episode 9 tells her son he needs to get reacquainted with his father's nine iron. For frolicking.
* AchievementsInIgnorance: Lelouch manages to corner Clovis in his G1 base without actually knowing how he managed to do it.
** In Episode 14.5, he manages to get a helicopter into the air by randomly pushing buttons.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Mao and Lelouch are actually friends in this version. He ''did'' give Shirley a gun for no apparent reason and then tried to shoot her, however.
* AllAccordingToPlan: Subverted.
--> '''Lelouch:''' "Aha! Burying the enemy alive in a rock slide! Just like I totally planned!"
--> '''Ohgi:''' "I thought you said you only wanted to kill the right people."
--> '''Lelouch:''' "What?"
--> '''Ohgi:''' "You buried our would-be-allies-"
--> '''(cut to) Liberal Japanese Leader:''' "Someone get the shovel."
--> '''Ohgi:''' "- and leveled the city at the bottom of the mountain."
--> '''Lelouch:''' "TITS!"
* AllMenArePerverts: Lelouch tricks an enemy into coming out of his mech by claiming to have a [=CD=] with "over 12 terabytes of pornography." Which is impossible, of course, because CD's can't even hold ''one'' gigabyte; the guy's brain [[DistractedByTheSexy didn't get that far]], apparently.
** In episode 15 he's calling tech support for that very CD as well but withholds the truth of what's on it.
* AlternateDVDCommentary: Sort of. Purpleeyes does one for episode 14 in the form of annotations in the video, with his comments ranging from [[DontExplainTheJoke pointing out the jokes]], to making snarky comments, to at one point leaving to go get a bag of Fritos. Also, he mentions Romania a lot.
* AmericanAccents: Cornelia had a very deep Texas accent, to the point of almost be a SouthernBelle.
* AssPull: Mocked by Lelouch in universe during episode 11 as C.C. distracts Suzaku.
--> '''One:''' "Oh of course, telepathy, ''silly me'', and here I was expecting something that '''made sense.'''"
* AudibleSharpness: That noble in episode one has a case of this.
** Also, episode 10 has a little FascinatingEyebrow whiplash duel between Deithard and Jeremiah.
** C.C also scares Lelouch by blinking at him.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abe-lincoln-steampunk-336x283_9137.jpg The previous leader of Japan]]. Too bad he sired Suzaku, otherwise he would have won.
* AuthorityInNameOnly: Emperor Charles is shaping up to be this.
* AxCrazy: while there is plenty of crazy the soldier trying to get some junk food takes the cake
--> '''Soldier One''': (aiming his gun at half a dozen civilians) I just walked a mile to get here! If I don't see a pizza in the next five seconds-
-->'''Soldier Two''': Come on man don't do this
-->'''Soldier One''': People! I have killed before! And I will kill again!
* [[spoiler: BawdySong]]: You will never be able to hear "Whole New World" with a straight face ever again.
* BelligerentSexualTension: In-universe, Lelouch and Kallen seem to refer to themselves as having it in Episode 3 (though Lelouch seems to ignore it after this point).
* BerserkButton: Just try saying "Team Deathmatch" in front of Jeremiah. [[SchmuckBait Just try it. See where it gets you.]]
** In Episode 11, Suzaku starts shooting wildly after C.C. subjects him to old Madonna music videos. [[HeroicBSOD The look on his face says it all.]]
** Lelouch constantly referring to [[SoulEater Death]] the [[TheCameo Kid]] as [[InsistentTerminology "Ying"]] doesn't do well at quelling anger, either.
---> '''Death The Kid''': Oh, don't start that shit again!
** Lelouch just wants to make sure that C.C. understands a few things... like [[NoIndoorVoice DON'T TOUCH HIS STUFF!]] Also, he doesn't really understand her outfit in Episode 14.
* BigEater: Suzaku. He can live entirely on a diet of crayons and lighter fluid. Also Lelouch's best silverware. ''Do you think [=McDonalds=] is open? I gotta get my Big Mac on.''
--> '''Lelouch:''' "That wasn't eating. I've seen eating. What happened in there was pure chaos."
* BearsAreBadNews:
--> '''Lelouch:''' "We better get out of this cave. Bears live in caves. And [[TitleDrop bears are crazy]]"
* BlatantLies: The ending of the first episode, which is rather normal by AbridgedSeries standards, proclaims that "Well, look on the bright side... at least it can't get any weirder." It... does.
** The narration in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OU6s45Lbgg8 "An introspective look at the dynamic between 0:06 videos and giving minimal information"]]
-->'''Suzaku''': Hey, wanna go to a convention?
-->'''Lelouch''': ''(angrily)'' No!
-->''Yes he does.''
* BloodKnight: Cornelia.
-->'''General''': ''Madam, we discovered that there is a tunnel bellow the hotel which we can use to infiltrate''.
-->'''Cornelia''': ''I hear you loud and clear. Let's fire a missile in there and be done with this''.
-->'''Dalton''': ''But Madam, we found that your sister is among the hostages''.
-->'''Cornelia''': ''I hear you loud and clear. Let's fire a missile in there and be done with this''.
-->{{Beat}}.
--> '''Cornelia''': '''''Fine'''''.
** Also, Guilford.
-->'''Guilford''': "Let me at 'em; I'll f*ck 'em up!"
* [[BottomlessMagazines Bottomless Magazine]]: In episode 8 [[spoiler: One (Lelouch) fires probably around ''100 shots or more'' from his ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny pistol]]'' before running out]] (there's roughly seventy shots) Subverted at the last second, [[spoiler: when he's about to shoot Euphemia, and the gun clicks.]]
* BrainBleach: Episode 14.
-->'''Lelouch:''' "Call my therapist. Tell him he's a rich man."
** Again in episode 15
-->'''Lelouch:''' (having looked at the 12 terabytes of porn) It's mostly Todd Phelps and Michael Bay trying to run train on Megan Fox. I tried scheduling some electro-convulsive therapy, but apparently trying to inadvertently wipe your memory to forget the Hangover 3 is FROWNED UPON!!!
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Episode 10. "Oh please, this series was dead long before he got here."
-->[[spoiler:'''Ghost Nappa:''']] "I'm in your show, fucking it up."
** Also Episode 1: "What happened? Did the animation budget run out again?"
** From the re-cut of episode 13
--> Naw dude, didn't you read the caption? It's a U.V.A.R.D
* BrickJoke: ''Linked''
** In Episode 6:
-->'''Guilford''': Hell, I stole your watch before you got in here.
-->'''Jeremiah''': So that's where that thing went.
-->'''Guilford''': Yeah, I lost it though.
-->'''Jeremiah''': Damnit, that was a Rolex!
** Then Later:
-->'''Lelouch''': You see a Rolex I lifted off some guy yesterday? You'd better not be touching my stuff.
** In a later episode:
-->'''Lelouch''': Suzaku, listen '''very carefully'''. I'm about to get ''seriously effed'' right now, so I need you to relay a message. Tell the girl with green hair in my room to '''NOT TOUCH MY STUFF!!!'''
** After meeting C.C. dressed in Lelouch's "One" clothes later:
-->'''Lelouch''': Blargh! Who are you?!
-->'''C.C.''': [Unmasks] You really are a moron, aren't you? Well, what do you have to say for yourself?
-->'''Lelouch''': '''[[{{Beat}} ...]]'''
-->'''C.C.''': Oka--
-->'''Lelouch''':'''DON'T TOUCH MY STUFF!!!'''
** In Episode 3, Milly says that Kallen is being indicted into the Student Council. Lelouch calls her out for using the wrong word (inducted vs. indicted) at the start of Episode 8.
-->'''Milly''': But that was three months ago. And now all you did is prove to us that you didn't know ''both'' words at the time.
-->'''Lelouch''': D'oh!
* BrokenRecord: Suzaku at the beginning of episode one. "Forever? Forever? Forever? Forever?"
* BrownNote: Old Madonna music videos have this effect on Suzaku and Lelouch.
* [[BumblingDad Bumbling Emperor]]: As expected, Emperor Charles has more than a few loose screws and seems to suffer from some case of senility. When trying to remember about Lelouch and Nunally:
--> '''Emperor Charles''': /''What was I thinking about just now?... something.. about... Japan.''/ We're taking over Japan! /''Boooyah''.//
* BuriedAlive: [[spoiler:Shirley's dad]] definitely PlayedForLaughs.
* ButHeSoundsHandsome: In episode 6:
-->'''Suzaku:''' "Who knew they'd put the death of Clover's murder on that stupid One guy?"
-->'''Lelouch:''' "That One guy '''sounds like A REALLY ''AWESOME'' DUDE!"'''
* ButtMonkey: "Rivalz, die in a fire."
* CallingYourAttacks: Kallen.
* CaptainObvious: Shirley in episode 9.
* CatchPhrase: "Team Deathmatch!" for ''a lot'' of the characters.
** Almost to the point of being ArcWords.
** '''''LAZER-ARM'''''
** SEVEN MINUTES!?
* CaughtWithYourPantsDown: Handled the 'Table-Kun' incident with the amount of tact and subtlety one would expect from an AbridgedSeries:
-->'''Nunally:''' I think Nina's really sick. I walked in on her in the Student Faculty Room and she sounded like a dying coyote.
* ChainsawGood: Lelouch points out that somebody needs to make a gun with chainsaw bullets quickly and gives Kallen a robot because she came up with the only thing greater than that: a gun that shoots a gun that shoots chainsaw bullets.
** In episode 15, Mao is talking with a shop owner. He mentions his target to kill is an immortal witch, which the shop keeper thinks he means an ex wife. He then offers Mao a chainsaw. Mao's response?
--> Oh ho, woah, buddy, buddy, look at me, look at me, look at me. Yes.
* [[SurpriseCheckmate Checkmated]] [[KilledMidSentence Mid-Sentence]]: On Episode 14, this happens in the middle of Lelouch's TrashTalk.
--> '''Lelouch''': A bold move. But you're about to be eaten alive, my little guppy friend--
--> '''Mao''': Checkmate.
--> '''Lelouch''': '''FUCK YOU!'''
** Purpleeyes said that Lelouch would've said this even if he won (joking that he himself does regardless of winning/losing), just with the line being inflected differently.
* [[spoiler: CoitusUninterruptus]] : Nina in the middle of her table related activities is interrupted by Nunnally... [[spoiler: She then continues seconds later with Nunnally still in the room]].
* ColbertBump: The number of viewers jumped by quite a bit after Takahata101 and LittleKuriboh (separately) recommended it.
** On the other hand, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2n9W6g1eEU YouTube videos]] of any music used in a ''Code MENT'' episode tend to see a spike in traffic after the episode is released, with many commentators quoting lines from the series.
* ContinuityNod:
--> '''Lelouch''': Damn continuity, damn it to hell!
* CorruptTheCutie: [[{{Foreshadowing}} "It's gonna be a miracle if that girl doesn't grow up to be a psychopath."]].
* CriticalResearchFailure: In-universe with Suzaku (naturally) and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SGuyncYIJc his explanation of HD televisions]].
* CrossOver: Multiple CM characters appear in episode five of ''NonePiece''.
** We get another crossover with ''NonePiece'' in episode 15. Luffy appears hiding in some bushes during a brief cut to Shirley. In episode 7 of ''NonePiece'', we see the scene from Luffy's perspective. [[spoiler: He's trying to snipe Lelouch]]
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Invoked at the start of episode five and subverted by Kallen's singing. [[invoked]]
* DanceBattler: Kallen turns into this in Episode 11.
* DeaderThanDead: Empress Marianne vi Britannia
--> '''Young Lelouch''': Dad! Dad! Mom is dead.
--> '''Emperor Charles''': How dead?
--> '''Young Lelouch''': Dead enough to cause Nunally to go blind.
--> ''' Emperor Charles''': That's ''pretty'' dead.
* DescriptionCut: Lots. Mostly of the form "A says B is smart, cut to B acting incredibly stupid."
-->'''Lelouch:''' "Who knows what kind of masterminds are behind all this?"
-->''Cut to:''
-->'''Lloyd:''' "KEYS!"
** Episode 5:
-->'''Euphy:''' Seriously, how are you still part of the army? I thought you had to be at least ''somewhat'' smart to be in there!\\
''Cut to:''\\
'''Soldier 1:''' Yo man, who is this fat f*ck?\\
'''Soldier 2:''' I dunno, but whoever he is, his fat ass is weighin' down this plane!
** From Episode 7:
-->'''Newscaster''': In an effort to capture the criminal mastermind known as ''One''-\\
''Cut to:''\\
'''One:'''OH-MY-GOD-MY-SHOES-ARE-ON-FIRE!
** Episode 9:
--> '''Cornelia:''' "This One guy seems to be our biggest threat."
--> Cut to:
--> '''One:''' "HOW DID I GET UP HERE?!"
** Also from Episode 9:
--> '''Kallen:''' "It's a good thing I have One to look up to. He's a great role model."
--> ''Cut to:''
--> '''One:''' "We need to score some drugs."
** Episode 10.
-->'''Cornelia:''' "Well, we'll have to concentrate on the army with the most competent leader."\\
''Cut to:''\\
'''Liberal Japanese Leader:''' "I stepped on a nail!"\\
''Cut to:''\\
'''One (while hitting himself repeatedly):''' "Dammit! [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Must. Learn. To. Read!]]"\\
''Cut to:''\\
'''Cornelia:''' "Or... just flip a coin or something..."
** DoubleSubverted at one point, in episode 14.
-->'''Cornelia''': They're probably off somewhere laughing at us right now!
-->''(cut to Tamaki laughing...except he's just [[TheStoner high on drugs again]])''
** Subverted in Episode 15:
-->'''C.C.''': You'll never get away with this Mao. I'm friends with Lelouch too, you know. He's probably mounting a rescue as we speak.\\
''Cut to:''\\
'''Lelouch:''' I friggin' plugged it into HDMI!\\
''Cut to:''\\
'''C.C.''': Oh god, I'm gonna die.\\
''*Then Lelouch appears on the fair's display next to C.C. and Mao, just as planned.*''
** From the same episode, we get two in one scene:
-->'''C.C.:''' I know you're gonna think I'm crazy when I say this, but Mao has the ability to read minds... I know because I'm the one that gave him that power. And ever since I did, [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead he's slowly]] [[PowerIncontinence been going crazy]].\\
''Cut to Mao listening to Gordon Lightfoot's "If You Could Read My Mind" on an MP3 player:''\\
'''Mao:''' OH MY GOD THIS ZUNE IS GREAT!\\
''Cut back to Lelouch and C.C.:''\\
'''Lelouch:''' Just so we're a hundred percent clear on the situation, [[SelectiveObliviousness I have not heard a word you've said]].\\
'''C.C.:''' Mao's gonna kill us.\\
'''Lelouch:''' That's nice.\\
''Cut back to Mao in a gun store:''\\
'''Mao:''' Hi, I'm here to kill some people.
* TheDeterminator: When it comes time to rouse the Dark Knights, Lelouch actually does manage to spring into action:
--> '''Kallen''': One, it looks like the Britanians are retreating!
--> '''One''': Like Hell we are! We're going after them!
--> '''Kallen''': But we're in a submarine! There's no way we'll make it in time!
--> '''One''': [[PrecisionFStrike FUCK that!]]
* TheDitz: '''All of the characters,''' but especially Suzaku, who gets extra points for mental retardation.
--> '''Lelouch''': Well Suzaku, it was great to have you over for dinner. Although there was really no need for you to eat all of the silverware.
--> '''Suzaku''': I need to be under constant supervision.
** During one point, Suzaku is in questioning with Jeremiah who is repeatedly assuring Suzaku they just want to ask a couple questions and let him go. Suzaku instead takes this as a hostile attack and begins belligerently attacking Jeremiah with nonsensical words before making an extremely annoying and incredibly indescribable noise. It's a vuvuezela. For which Jeremiah immediately decides, fuck it, execute him.
** Kallen's Mother (her actual one from the show) is especially eccentric. She accuses stepladders and vases of attacking her. And then she teaches them violent lessons in pain.
* DrivenToSuicide:
** The soldiers at the end of the first episode after Lelouch confronts them with ''[[CSIMiami CSI.... MIAMI]]''.
*** Guess that means... CSI Miami was to die for... ''[[RunningGag Yee]][[TheWho eeee]][[BigYes aaaaaa]][[OverlyLongGag hhhhhhh!]]''
** [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Oompa Loompas]].
* DrivesLikeCrazy:
--> "Look! No hands!"
** Episode 10:
-->'''Liberation Member''': "Sir, for the love of god, open your eyes!"
-->'''Tohdoh''': "I won't lie: I've been drinking again."
* DrivingStick: Episode one.
---> "Oh shit. This may be a bad time to tell you but I can't drive stick." ''[crash]''
* DubNameChange: Zero is now "One".
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: Jeremiah's "death" at the end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IblwlpnWmEk&t=8m08s episode 10]] is way more '''''[[BadassNormal badass]]''''' than in the original show. And this might actually be a death, seeing as purpleeyeswtf neglected to include the footage of him surviving...
--> "NOW IF YOU'LL EXCUSE ME, ''I'LL SEE YOU IN HELL!''"
** Shown to be at least a temporary death, as he ended up in the realm of reaped souls in the Soul Eater one-shot, but the ending implies he came back to life.
* EveryCarIsAPinto:
--> '''Jeremiah:''' "If I'm back here, and you're back here, who's driving the car?"
-->''Cue fiery live-action car explosion''
* ExactWords: This little treat from episode 12, after Lelouch has been informed that the group hasn't received any added funds since their last battle:
--> One: But Tamaki, I thought you said you were getting a lot of ''use'' out of our drug operation!
--> Tamaki: ''[speaking unnaturally slowly]'' We should go to 7-11 [[PunctuatedForEmphasis RIGHT. NOW!]]
--> One: [[FacePalm (resigned in unenthusiasm) Okay.]]
--> Tamaki: [[CrowningMomentOfFunny We should get a DOG!]]
* ExtremeOmnivore: Suzaku. He's been known to consume plastic, cyanide, glass, crayons and lighter fluid, among other things. Oh, and silverware. And a whole end table.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: PlayedForLaughs. Seems to be the code of conduct for all of Purpleeyes's works. It's perfectly acceptable and forgivable to stab people, shoot people, lie to people, manipulate people, sexually harass people, insult the dignity of people (note that 'people' can include your own friends). But don't you ever ''ever'' interrupt someone; it's just rude.
** Toudou was much more upset over the enemy cutting his cable than the fact they kill hundreds of his soldiers and buried part of his group under a mountain. Then again, it ''is'' [[CloudCuckoolander Toudou]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In episode 6, Lelouch says that his blaming Suzaku for his own actions will never come back to bite him. This statement is immediately followed [[LampshadeHanging by the words Epic Forshadowing flashing across the screen in big red letters with a siren playing behind them.]]
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: "What are you all looking at? Is it that horse guy again?"
* FutureSlang: Refrain.
-->'''One''': Tamaki, I don't know what kind of lingo you kids think is ''hip'' nowadays, but let's just call it ''meth'' like everybody else!
* {{Gasp}}: Lelouch ''says'' "Audible gasp!"
* GeneralFailure: The vast majority of military leaders in the series, on all sides.
* GilliganCut: Someone mentions how much of a criminal mastermind One is, cut to One doing something stupid.
-->'''One:''' Oh my God! ''My shoes are on fire!''
** Or if C.C. mentions how crazy Mao is.
-->'''Mao:''' Oh my God, this Zune is great!
* GroinAttack: According to episode fourteen's annotations:
--> "Don't worry, [Lelouch] got shot in the penis. It's broken so it doesn't matter."
* HalloweenEpisode
* HasTwoMommies: Kallen and Suzaku. Kallen doesn't actually understand the concept of fathers.
-->'''Milly''': Kallen, where do babies come from?
-->'''Kallen''': When a woman and another woman love each other very much they-
-->'''Milly''': Okay, never mind, it all makes sense.
** Except that Suzaku has at least one father, so maybe he just has no idea what genders are.
*** Well, both his moms are dead.
* HypocriticalHumor: Nina and Rivalz saying that Suzaku has a stupid voice. [[note]]He does, but theirs are even worse.[[/note]]
** A random creep in a car propositions Lelouch:
-->'''Man:''' Get in the car, I'll give ya some candy.
-->'''Lelouch:''' Dumbass! You just lost yourself some candy!
* IdiotSavant: Suzaku, the mental retard giant robot pilot extraordinaire.
--> '''Suzaku''': [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext ''Koo-koo- kachu Mrs. Robinson'']].
** According to at least one gag, they need Suzaku to pilot it because he's so dumb that he's immune to pain.
* IMinoredInTropology: ''Doctor'' Jeremiah, with a [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority PhD in Asskicking]], a Bachelor's in Pain, and a minor in [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Women's Studies.]]
* ImpracticallyFancyOutfit: Issuing miniskirts to the women as the standard uniform. Made more funny because ''it shouldn't'' be a problem in the first place, since they don't impair running. [[CaptainObvious Giant bullets shot from Mechas are another matter of course]].
* IntentionalEngrishForfunny: "All your drugs are belong to us!"
** [[StealthPun Snrk.]]
* IntoxicationEnsues: "I'm tripping balls!"
* IntrepidReporter: Camera 3.
-->'''Deithard''': Hey, where the hell is Camera 3?
-->'''Assistant''': He said he was gonna get some "action shots".
** cut to collapsing building:
-->'''Camera 3 Man''':[falling to his death] "THIS-IS-GONNA-BE-THE-BEST-SHOT-EVER!!"
* InsaneTrollLogic: Overall this series is fueled almost entirely by this trope. Heck it pretty much IS InsaneTrollLogic.
** Lelouch ''all the time'':
--> '''Lelouch''': So you are going to shoot me huh? Well [[spoiler: the only person who shoots me is me! (points a gun at his head) Good luck trying to shoot me WHEN I'M ALREADY DEAD!]]
--> '''C.C.''': ...you are a whole new level of stupid.
--> '''Lelouch''': Ah, but who is stupider? [[spoiler: The one trying to kill himself, or the person trying to kill the person trying to kill himself?!]] *beat* That's what I thought.
** Suzaku is just as bad..
--> '''One''': Suzaku, listen! It's me!
--> '''Suzaku''': No, it is not! Because I'm me! And that makes you not me!
--> '''One''': What the f***?
-->({{Beat}})
--> '''One''': You know what, just kill me.
** Lelouch again:
--> '''Lelouch''': If I'm out there, then who's in here...? *GASP* ''I'M MAGIC!''
* LameComeback: In episode ten.
--> '''Deithard:''' "Oh, it's you two idiots. What do you want?"
--> '''Jeremiah:''' "You're the idiot." ''I am so good at come backs.''
* ItMakesSenseInContext: For certain definitions of "sense" and "context".
** MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext
* LargeHam: Lelouch and Jeremiah all the time.
* LarynxDissonance: There isn't even any effort to make female voices and it '''IS GLORIOUS'''. Though his husky C.C. voice does sound sufficiently feminine.
** [[ManOfAThousandVoices Milly's and Nunally's actually work too.]]
* LeeroyJenkins: Suzaku
--> Cuckoo-cachoo, Mrs. Robinson!
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Even though she died, Lelouch's mother sure didn't seem to express much pain.
--> '''Lelouch's Mother''': That smarts!
* ManOfAThousandVoices: All the voices are done by Purpleeyes, and he does a pretty damn good job at it. Though some of the female characters sound kinda similar. Kallen (and one of her Moms) sound like Mickey Mouse.
* MediumAwareness: During XIII-2:
-->'''Soldier 1:''' (As a submarine flies towards them) Is that a sub?
-->'''[[InsistentTerminology Soldier 2:]]''' No, didn't you read the caption earlier? It's a UVARD.
-->'''Soldier 1:''' [[PrecisionFStrike The fuck is a UVARD?!]] *hit by UVARD*
* {{Metaphorgotten}}: Episode 8:
--> '''Lelouch/'''[[strike:Zero]] '''One:''' We are the Dark Knights for justice. Because as children we were nursed on the milk of justice, and as we grew up we acquired a taste for justice. Now as we get older we once again desire the taste of justice... but we cannot find the milk! So we go to Starbucks! And we get a coffee! But it's not the same thing! IT SUCKS! WHY DID I ORDER THIS!? IT'S TERRIBLE! And now you all understand what our mission is. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis And. What. We. Must. Do.]]
** Also, Episode 2:
-->'''Lelouch''': "Like making babies from a candy! Mmm, candy."
** Episode 9:
-->'''Lelouch:''' "Don't flatter yourself. I was just trying to bite your tongue off so I wouldn't have to hear your ugly face anymore."
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: "NO ONE CARES ABOUT KALLEN!"
* NeverLearnedToRead: Lelouch, Suzaku, and Kallen.
** C.C. is the only character in the entire series that has proven she isn't illiterate, which might explain a lot as to why why she seems to be the smartest person around (although it helps she's also the only character who isn't insane).
*** Ohgi reads Lelouch's plans in episode ten but considering that Lelouch can't spell (in English anyway) Ohgi might just be as bad as he is.
* NoodleIncident: There are multiple references to an incident from Suzaku and Lelouch's childhood involving a Slip-N-Slide. [[spoiler: He set it on fire. While Lelouch was on it.]]
** "And that was the third time I tried meth." (Lelouch)
** "And that's why I'm not legally allowed to use scissors anymore." (Suzaku)
** The conversation the Japanese guards have while [[spoiler:Lelouch kills their leader]].
-->'''Guard:''' "...and it took a ton of hair spray... Could you believe it? I had to run and get the hose... but thank god I knew were the ax was... banana shoes..."
* OffTheRails: It's about as related to the original plot as the TableTopRpg of the SamuraiPizzaCats with the original Japanese abridged SourceBook translated by a barely literate korean farmer in both idioms ina session with a bunch of amateur noobs.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: C.C. all the way. [[OnlySaneEmployee Kewell]] has this role whenever he shows up.
** Euphemia's pretty sane too. After that whole suicide thing, anyway--or perhaps because of it...
** Ohgi seems to know what he's doing. Also, though she's just the student body president, Milly is pretty on the ball.
** [[Manga/SoulEater Death the Kid]], especially in comparison to his relatives.
** ''Mao'', of all people, is actually a pretty sane and rational guy. He's pretty friendly too.
** Lelouch seems to have been this as a kid.
* OhCrap: Deithard has an understated one:
-->'''Tamaki''': [[EvilLaugh AHAHAHAHAHAHA--]]
-->'''Deithard''': Has anyone seen One?
-->''[[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Tamaki continues laughing as an Oompa-Loompa dances to Perov Stelar's "Booty Swing" on the table.]]''
-->'''Deithard''': [[DramaticDeadpan So it begins.]]
* [[ParodySue Parody Stu]]: Lelouch. He's a prince [[BigScrewedUpFamily who's also related to]] [[Manga/SoulEater Death the Kid]] and [[{{Hellsing}} Alucard]] with incredible power and influence over others, gets away with stuff that can only be described as ''batshit insane''... and yet he spends most of his time just being a Jerkass, scoring drugs, blowing stuff up, and contributing nothing but menace to society.
* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: Lelouch mentions in passing that Suzaku actually does always use "Swordfish" as his password.
* PreviouslyOn: "Last time!" Parodied in the beginning of episode 5. None of it happened, of course... [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs we think]].
* PsychopathicManchild: Lelouch, mostly. He's very easily distracted. Despite driving the plot, most of his insane stunts are done on a whim. Lloyd as well.
* RapidFireComedy: Part of what makes this series so different from other AbridgedSeries out there. It's rare for a single character to speak for more than a few seconds at a time.
* ReCut: All of the first 8 episodes were redone to meet purpleeyes' growing skill and standards. Some jokes were lost in the process but ultimately the final versions are superior. Episode 10 has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zi9zopO0q0k a good example of an extended cut]].
* RuleOfFunny:... it's an abridged series.
** Kallen and Lelouch's inability to pronounce "Britannia" in the recut of episode ten
* RefugeInAudacity: There is not a single plot in the entire series that hasn't made extensive use of this.
* {{Robosexual}}: In episode ten, Lelouch's computer says "Thank you for waiting... my love."
* RunningGag: Team Death Match!
** ExpospeakGag: One soldier launches into a [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness long and elaborately-worded speech]] about their military situation, which he sums up by declaring that they are all in a great big Team Death Match. Jeremiah [[BerserkButton shoots him for his troubles]].
-->'''Mook''': Well basically, we're fighting a native people who's overthrown by our imperialistic government which is situated elsewhere. Our nation desires to maintain these various underlying colonies. In particular this former state has multiple resistance factions which ultimately fight for an independent sovereign nation. Meanwhile we fight to eliminate their unruly resistance to our supressive discriminatory governance. Therefore and thusly, we are all stuck...in a giant...[[ArcWords team deathmatch]].
** Lelouch breaking every door he opens.
* SanityBall: More than a few people get it, but surprisingly, Lelouch seems to hold it most. He's often playing the OnlySaneMan to even crazier. Which is often. Or when he's lampshading anything about CC.
* SayMyName: "JAAASSSSSPPPPPEEEERRRRRR!"
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Mao says this word for word in Episode 14 when a MexicanStandOff between Shirley, Lelouch and himself goes bad. You know, as far as one can go 'bad' when the situation is a MexicanStandOff.
-->'''Shirley''': Nobody move until I figure out what I'm doing!
* SelfDeprecation: After seeing a clip of ''NonePiece'' Lelouch shouts "THIS IS AWFUL!"
** During the fake TAC awards:
-->'''Jeremiah:''' Here's a list of the categories we've won. 'Best Stolen Idea Since Facebook'.
-->'''Suzaku and Lelouch:''' HOORAY!
-->'''Jeremiah:''' Okay, ''that'' award shouldn't have warranted that particular reaction from you two.
-->'''Lelouch:''' Hey, I'll take them where I can get them.
-->'''Jeremiah:''' Moving on. The 'Burns My Eyeballs Just Watching It' award.
-->'''Suzaku and Lelouch:''' YAAAAY!
-->'''Jeremiah:''' ''(as the other two continue to cheer in the background)'' Well, let it never be said that you two can't be optimistic.
** The introduction of episode fourteen has the tag line: ''Like WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries, only worse!''
*** Which, humorously enough, got a ShoutOut in the intro to Episode 56 of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''; Yami's opening narration is [[IronicEcho "Like Code MENT, only worse!"]]
* SeltzerAndFriedberg: Jeremiah is arrested for trying to kill them in Episode 6. [[TakeThat By his own admission, this is not the first time this has happened.]]
* SerialEscalation: Think of all the shenanigans done so far. Purpleeyeswtf managed to top all of them in the first ''9 seconds'' of episode 12. And it goes even further from there.
-->'''Lelouch''': Getting kicked off the internet for this one.
* ShockSite: "Hey what's goin on over here...? What's she doin' with that cup...? OH GOD I'M GONNA BE SICK!"
* ShoutOut: Like all Abridged Series there are an absurd amount of them. Here are some:
** The whole Skype call in episode 8 seems like a hilarious homage to SpaceGhostCoastToCoast
** Also, I'm pretty sure Raymond Philips from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zi9zopO0q0k Ep 10 (non-canon edition)]] is a shout out to [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Senor Cardgage]].
** Jeremiah's "seven minutes" rant:
--> '''Jeremiah:''' [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil5 "SEVEN MINUTES IS ALL I CAN SPARE TO PLAY WITH THEM!"]]
** The Japanese leader telling people [[RedLetterMedia to email him if they want him to send them a pizza bagel.]]
** Jeremiah (while high on PCP) screaming that [[{{Inception}} "the dream is collapsing"]].
** [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer "Bored now."]]
** In episode 10:
--> '''Tamaki:''' [[Film/ASerbianFilm "If you own a baby, keep it the hell away from Serbia!"]]
** Also from episode ten: Death The Kid from ''Manga/SoulEater'' makes an appearance, as do two characters from ''Anime/{{Hellsing}}''/''WebVideo/HellsingUltimateAbridged'', [[spoiler:Ghost Nappa]] from ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' and Lelouch's computer says that it's connecting to [[{{Terminator}} Skynet]].
** "[[Film/TheMatrix I need to get out of here. It's the smell...]]"
** Notably, from episode 13:
-->'''Suzaku:''' [[CaptainObvious Somebody died]], [[AmateurSleuth and it's up to me to find out who it was and why!]]
-->'''Lelouch:''' (nonchalantly gazing at his [[BrandX iPony 2]]) Shirley's Dad and he was buried alive. There, I'm a regular ComicStrip/DickTracy.
-->'''Suzaku:''' [[SmallReferencePools Five people left on the planet]] [[LampshadedTheObscureReference know who that is]] [[BerserkButton and I'm not one of them!]]
** [[KungPow "I implore you to reconsider"]]
** Episode 14:
--> '''Mao:''' [[Series/{{Firefly}} "You just sit here and stay shiny."]]
** Lelouch's ringtone is [[FriskyDingo Cat Party]] for a few episodes.
** To ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' in Episode 12:
-->'''Security Guy with Deep Voice:''' Attention assholes, anyone caught screwing with the old man gets shot by our very visible guns.
* SimpletonVoice: Suzaku.
* SpicyLatina: Viletta.
* StupidSurrender: [[spoiler:Mao]] does this at the end of episode 15 even though he's gotten out of worse [[BulletHell it doesn't him much good]]
* TheStoner: Tamaki. Taken to an extreme in episode 12 where he consumed all the meth they stole instead of selling it.
* TakeThat: Diethard complains about how they cancelled ''MegasXLR'' so Cornelia could broadcast the Shinjuku Massacre.
** Lelouch referring to the complete script of ''StarWars ThePhantomMenace'' as the exact opposite of clever.
** In episode 10:
--->'''One:''' Here, Kallen.
--->'''Kallen:''' What's this?
--->'''One:''' It's a flash drive containing the mix of all the best Music/OwlCity songs for our journey to Shatter Mountain.
--->'''Kallen:''' But it says it's only 1 megabyte big.
--->[[{{Beat}} *beat*]]
--->'''Kallen:''' Oh.
** ... and episode 11:
--->'''Lelouch''': Ohgi, is the robot okay?!
--->'''Kallen''': I'm fine, just a couple of bruises.
--->'''Lelouch''': Yeah, that's cool, I guess, but IS THE ROBOT OKAY?!
--->'''Kallen''': I don't know. The status screen just says Creator/JessicaAlba's movie career.
--->'''Lelouch''': Damn, that bad, huh?
** Plus, episode 4:
--->'''Lelouch''': (finishing his monologue)... but you can call me... Creator/AdamWest!
--->'''Kallen''': Noooo.
--->'''Lelouch''': Uh, call me 5?
--->'''Kallen''': Lower.
--->'''Lelouch''': 4.
--->'''Kallen''': Lower!
--->'''Lelouch:''' 5!
--->'''Kallen''': Oh my God, no!
--->'''Lelouch''': 2?
--->'''Kallen''': Lower...
--->'''Lelouch''': Colin Farrell!
--->'''Kallen''': Not ''that'' low!
** In Episode 11, listening to old {{Madonna}} songs is a BrownNote for both Suzaku and Lelouch.
** Episode 4 has a rather interesting case:
---> '''Lelouch''': What are you talking about? I spent the entirety of yesterday watching the funny episodes of ''[[EverybodyLovesRaymond Everyone Loves Raymond]]''. [thinking to himself] ''You fool! Everyone KNOWS those don't exist!''
---> '''Kallen''': [[SubvertedTrope Okay, your story checks out!]]
---> '''Lelouch''': [thinking, filled with satisfaction] ''Like I was saying, you're a genius!''
** Episode 13 has one for the iPad...sorry, [[BlandNameProduct "iPony"]]:
---> '''Lelouch:''' These things are clearly too big for conventional pockets, and clearly too small to be real computers. ''What is the point of this thing?!''
** ...And to keep things fair, Windows 7 takes the blame for some technological failures.
---> '''Lelouch''': DAMN YOU WINDOWS SEVEN!
*** ...except that [[FacePalm Lelouch has a Linux.]]
** Another crack at Microsoft from Episode 15:
--->'''C.C.:''' I know you're going to think I'm crazy when I say this, but Mao has the ability to read minds. I know because I'm the one that gave him that power. And ever since I did, he's [[SanitySlippage slowly been going crazy]].\\
* Cut to Mao*\\
'''Mao:''' Oh my God, this [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zune Zune]] is great!
* TangledFamilyTree: even more so than the original series, since Lelouch's paternal uncle and cousin are Death and Death the Kid, and his maternal uncle is Alucard
-->'''C.C:''' It's official, this shit makes no sense at all
* TemptingFate: In episode fourteen:
-->'''Mao:''' You know, I thought today was gonna suck, but it turns out I'm gonna find the girl I've been looking for forever and I got a new best friend. ''[Lelouch looks through the window behind Mao to Shirley pointing a gun at him]'' [{{Beat}}] OH JUST FUCKING BALLS!
* ThatCameOutWrong: In episode six, when Lelouch is chasing a cat that stole his One helmet.
-->'''Lelouch:''' "That pussy's got my head's protection! Wow. That did not come out right." [falls into a bush] "Well this figures. I'm supposed to be chasing pussy but instead I'm stuck in the bush." [{{Beat}}] "What is wrong with me today!" [finds Suzaku] "Suzaku, what are you doing here?"
-->'''Suzaku:''' "I'm here to kick ass." [hears meow] "Now let's go take care of your pussy problem!"
-->'''Lelouch:''' "Well, at least, it's not just me."
* TheTalk: In Episode 12, Lelouch explains to Nunnally what happens when a woman and a table love each other very much.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Jeremiah, in Episode 5.
-->'''Jeremiah''': Let's hug it out, bitch!
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: The pair of soldiers from episode 1 have a tendency to pop back up every now and again. It's like a combination of Jules and Vincent on ''lots'' of meth and [[Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle Harold and Kumar]] but with pizza bagels instead of White Castle.
* TitleDrop: In episodes 2 - Big Trouble, 6 - The Smell Of Victory, and 11 - Bears Are Crazy.
* TooDumbToLive: Kallen and Suzaku.
** Lelouch forgot to put airholes in his helmet.
* TooSoon: Suzaku in the flashback in episode 6, while Lelouch is carrying his blind and crippled sister (which was caused when their mother was shot to death).
-->'''Suzaku:''' "Hey Lelouch, hey Lelouch, hey Lelouch!"
-->'''Lelouch:''' "What?"
-->'''Suzaku:''' "You know what would suck?"
-->'''Lelouch:''' "What?"
-->'''Suzaku:''' "Being blind."
-->'''Lelouch:''' "..."
-->'''Suzaku:''' "You know what would suck even more?"
-->'''Lelouch:''' "..."
-->'''Suzaku:''' "Being blind and crippled."
-->'''Lelouch:''' "..."
-->'''Suzaku:''' "You know what suck even more?"
-->'''Lelouch:''' "..."
-->'''Suzaku:''' "Being blind and crippled because your mom got shot to death!"
-->'''Lelouch:''' "Suzaku!"
-->'''Suzaku:''' "..."
-->'''Lelouch''': [[SubvertedTrope "You're absolutely right."]]
* UnexplainedRecovery: Jeremiah and Villetta are involved in a pretty horrific car crash at the start of episode 4, of the 'giant fireball of death' variety. They show up later again with nary a scratch on either of them.
-->'''Jeremiah:''' Sorry I'm late you guys, car trouble.
* UnusualEuphemism: Lelouch's mind is so warped from using so many that when hearing someone was going to be indicted (Milly meant to say "inducted"), his response was "Milly, that's disgusting!"
* WhatIsThisFeeling: Lelouch's computer asks this before referring to Lelouch as "my love".
* WhenIWasYourAge: [[RuleOfFunny For some reason,]] this seems to be the catchphrase for One.
* YourMom:
-->'''Cornelia:''' "Lloyd, you're our top researcher."
-->'''Lloyd:''' "Your ''mother's'' our top researcher!"
-->'''Cornelia:''' "You do know I'm the new princess in charge of this area?"
-->'''Lloyd:''' "Your ''mother's'' the new princess in charge of ''my'' area!"
* YouShouldHaveDiedInstead:
-->'''Dark Knights Soldier:''' We've already lost Lieutenant Nielson.
-->'''Lieutenant Nielson:''' I am content. *dies*
-->'''Lelouch:''' Why can't it ever be Rivalz!? WHY!?
