[[caption-width-right:300:"This is The Console. Pixelface Games now loading..."]]

Set in the imagined world inside a games console, ''Pixelface'' is a CBBC sitcom spin-off from the sketch show ''Sorry, I've Got No Head''. The show follows the on-and-off-screen lives of a group of computer game characters, each from a different genre. There's Aethelwynne, a questing elf; Claireparker, a zombie battling waitress; Rex Dynamo, a marsupial hybrid who collects apples; Sgt. Riley, a space marine; Lady Alexia Alderton, a glamorous legend hunter; and Kiki Nova, an incredibly upbeat and enthusiastic dance star. ''Pixelface'' shows the characters waiting to play their game and reacting when their console is invaded by the likes of an evil bug or a Premiership football team.

!!''Pixelface'' contains examples of:

* AccidentalAthlete: In "Rex on the Bench", Rex becomes the mascot for a football team, and is forced to make a penalty shootout. Alexia is able to get him to score the winning goal by telling him not to break the goals as, every time he is told not break something, he immediately does.
* AdventurerArchaeologist: This is Alexia's occupation in her own game.
* AirVentPassageway: Used by the entire main cast when the zombies from Claireparker's game invade the console. Of course, the vents weren't designed to take that much weight and everyone ends up crashing through the ceiling.
* AshFace: Aethelwynne after he turns on his electric lyre in "Rock Star".
* BalefulPolymorph: Alexia is transformed into a yeti by a magical beauty cream in "The Ugly Truth".
* BrownNote: Romford claims he can play a tone that will cause someone to wet themselves.
* CleavageWindow: Alexia's outfit.
* ClipShow: "HAL". An incomplete update cause the Console to go insane. As she torments the characters, she keeps playing clips from her "archive" to illustrate her points.
* CloudCuckoolander: Rex
* CompanionCube: In "Out of Sight", a glitch in the system renders Claireparker unable to be detected by the rest of the occupants of the console. Starting to crack up, she begins talking to the rubber duck she picked up in the last session of her game.
* CosmeticCatastrophe: This is the result when Kiki performs a makeover on Alexia and Claireparker while they are asleep in "Two Aethelwynnes".
* CrashCourseLanding: Kiki gets trapped in a flight simulator game and has to be talked through the landing procedure by Rex. However, being the CloudCuckoolander, Rex is only able to do after first constructing a mock-up of the flight controls made entirely of fruit.
* DidYouGetANewHaircut: Happens when Kiki has illegally eaten one on the power-up fruits from Rex's game and turned into a giant. Rex sees her and comments that there is something different about her: her hair is glossier. A few seconds later, he realises that she is also six times her normal size.
* TheDitz: Kiki Nova
* DIYDisaster: Romford's attempt to 'upgrade' the kettle somehow results in the toaster launching ProjectileToast at Alexia.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: The Quartermaster, a.k.a. QM.
* {{Expy}}: Each character seems to be an expy of several well known video game characters:
** Aethelwynne is based off Link from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''. He is also scarily similar to [[Series/RedDwarf Rimmer]] in personality and has a name reminisant of the elves in ''Literature/LordOfTheRings''
** Claireparker is based off most protagonists in a SurvivalHorror Zombie game such as ''Franchise/ResidentEvil''.
** Rex Dynamo is based off platforming characters like [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] or [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]].
** Sgt. Riley is based off many protagonists in any SpaceMarine game.
** Alexia is based off [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]].
** And Kiki Nova is based off any character in a dancing game such as ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution''.

-->'''Claireparker:''' It's a drawing, Rex. Any other questions?
-->(Rex's hand goes up)
-->'''Claireparker:''' They're all drawings, Rex.
-->(Rex's hand goes down)
* HatOfPower: In "The Game's Up", QM comes up with a hat of invisibility that renders the wearer invisible. The drawback is that the hat itself remains visible.
