The Saturday Video Entertainment System (SVES) was a block of action animation (both Anime and Western) [[{{Toonami}} similar to another block currently airing at the time]]. The block aired on Saturday nights from March 2003 to April 2004. It featured bumpers reminiscent of older arcade games with a [[{{Metroid}} Samus Aran]]-like character in a space fighter craft.

!!The Saturday Video Entertainment System provides examples of specific tropes:

* SamusIsAGirl: At the end of the block, the pilot would take off their helmet, revealing it to be a female character.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Acted pretty much the same as {{Toonami}} (and even DID air many of its same shows), except airing on a Saturday.
** WordofGod states that the {{Toonami}} staff actually developed and worked on SVES.
