[[caption-width-right:350:Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er.]]
Die Antwoord ("The Answer") is a South African satirical rap group, with lead [=MC=]s Watkin Tudor Jones aka [[StageName Ninja]] and Anri du Toit a.k.a. [[StageName Yo-Landi Vi$$er]]. DJ Hi-Tek often appears with them, but has not been confirmed to be either a real musician or an actor in costume.

One of the many musical projects Watkin has had. They started as Max Normal, later Max Normal.TV, doing "motivational raps" in Power Point presentations in local festivals. This eventually morphed into Die Antwoord, finally catching the attention from international media.

The group uses "zef" imagery, which [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zef That Other Wiki]] defines as "a white, lower-middle-class subculture that glorifies cheap stuff". They are known for their HighConcept videos and having a dedicated cult of followers.

'''Albums So Far:'''
* ''$O$'' (2009)
* ''Ten$ion'' (2012)
* ''Donker Mag'' (expected February 2014)

They have been championed by Xeni Jardin of popular website [[http://boingboing.net Boing Boing.]]

----
!! Die Antwoord and their music contains examples of:
* BlackEyesOfEvil: In "I Fink U Freeky". Yo-landi also had them during [[http://www.mtv.com.au/news/celebrity-spotting-front-row-new-york-fashion-week-spring-2013/ NYC Fashion Week 2013]].
** HellishPupils / WingDingEyes: Yo-landi's yellow "dollar-eyes" in "Fatty Boom Boom"
* BilingualBonus: They frequently rap in Afrikaans. "Evil Boy" also features a verse in Xhosa. "Fok Julle Naaiers", off of ''Ten$ion,'' translates to "Fuck All You Fuckers."
* BlackComedyRape: ''DJ Hi-Tek Rulez''
* BoastfulRap
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Yo-Landi's persona in the video for "Baby's On Fire"
* CatchPhrase: "Zef."
* ClusterFBomb: Frequently.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Yo-Landi.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: The owner of the wheelchair store, from their "Umshini Wam" short film. He might have been a bigoted old prick, but it takes ''balls of steel'' to stare into the barrel of a gun and say: "No. Fok YOU!" Doubles with VillainousValour
* {{Fanservice}}: Intentional or not, Yo-Landi is scantily clad in most videos.
** FanDisservice: She's also usually covered with filth and/or wearing creepy makeup prosthetics and/or covered in unsettling animals like rats and giant moths and/or doing things like using the toilet and/or making NightmareFace[=s=]. Ninja is all fan-disservice all the time.
* FanCommunityNickname: "Zeflings".
* GagPenis: The video for "Evil Boy"; the '''EVIL THING''' in "Fatty Boom Boom" has ''two of 'em''.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: As the page image shows, Ninja towers over petite Yo-Landi.
* IAmSong: "Enter the Ninja."
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: In the "Baby's On Fire" video, in which Ninja manages to miss a non-moving human from five feet away.
* IntercourseWithYou: "Beat Boy", "U Make A Ninja Wanna Fuck" and part of "Evil Boy".
* IncestSubtext: Played with in the video for "Baby's On Fire," in which real-life married couple Ninja and Yo-Landi play brother and sister, and Ninja chases every single boy Yo-Landi wants to hook up with out of her room with gradually intensifying weapons.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The drummer in "Fatty Boom Boom" has Ninja's favorite words written on him; they include "peace", "care", "love", "play", "respect", "kindness", and "joy".
* TheMovie: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMVNjMF1Suo "Umshini Wam"]],a short film they did with Harmony Korine.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: The video for "Baby's on Fire" plays with the DoubleStandard this trope creates: Ninja sleeps with every floozy in town, but flips out the moment Yo-Landi tries to have a sex life.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Yo-Landi is 28,but looks 15/16 ''at most''. Ninja is almost 40 and still looks like he could be in his early-mid twenties.
* ProtestSong: "Evil Boy," against the Xhosa practice of ritual circumcision of adolescent boys, often with dirty tools and without anesthetic.
* RefugeInAudacity: Any of their songs fall under this. If you have a working knowledge of Xhosa, Zulu and Afrikaans... HOO BOY!
* RichBitch: They have a song with this title.
* ShirtlessScene: '''Ninja'''. Even when he's wearing a shirt in "I Fink U Freeky" it's got holes for his nipples.
* ShoutOut: To pop culture and their favorite artists, plus:
** "Rich Bitch"'s video could be a parody/homage to {{Sublime}}'s "Wrong Way": both have girls trapped in poverty with their horrible father and brothers and take the wrong way out -- "Wrong Way"'s heroine is forced to become a prostitute who hooks up with the wrong guy while Yo-landi [[spoiler: sets her house and family on fire]].
** "I Fink U Freeky" seems to take at least a little inspiration from [[http://www.rogerballen.com/image-gallery/platteland-images the photo of two inbred South African brothers]] (lower right).
** "Fatty Boom Boom" has a reference to ''Film/DistrictNine''. They're apparently fairly close friends with Neil Blompkamf.
** Ninja's mustache(?) looks kind of like a [[Franchise/StarTrek Klingon's]].
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: In "Evil Boy,"
--> ''Even though you lying down, I can make you stand up!'' -
* StealthParody: They are actually a ''satirical'' musical project, one of the many Watkin and Anri already had, but a lot of people, including even media specialized in music, are not aware of that fact. Overlaps with StylisticSuck.
* TakeThat: "Fok Julle Naaiers", which is a shot at... everything, really.
** To Music/LadyGaga directly in "Fatty Boom Boom" (she had asked the duo to open for them in South Africa - the pair responded by having a fake Lady Gaga drag queen get chased around South Africa, pull prawns out of her vagina, and eaten by a lion); to Music/NickiMinaj, Music/KanyeWest, Music/LilWayne(?), and Music/PitBull plus Gaga as a [[Literature/TheBible multiheaded Beast of Revelations-type monster]] with two giant GagPenis[=es=] that's shitting out TheBlackEyedPeas on a mural titled '''"EVIL THING"''', which is getting shot by Archbishop Desmond Tutu's ''automatic Bible'').
** To Dr Dre's headphones in "I Fink U Freeky". Reportedly, they have beef with the director in charge of marketing Dre's headphones.
** To Ludacris in "Hey Sexy".
* UglyGuyHotWife
** [[SheCleansUpNicely They Cleaned Up Nicely]]: [[http://nisuh.buzznet.com/photos/evolutionofyolandi/?id=65339961 Yo-landi]] and [[http://nisuh.buzznet.com/photos/evolutionofyolandi/?id=65339971 Ninja]], pre-Die Antwoord.
* TheVoiceless: DJ Hi-Tek, who never speaks and almost always wears some sort of mask.
--> '''Ninja:'''...when Hi-Tek walks in the motherfucking room like: "..."
* YouDirtyRat: Averted. Yo-Landi loves them, and they frequently show up in her parts in videos.
