No, this is not related to Jujubes candy, nor to the [[NamesTheSame Tak]] from [[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim another Nicktoon]].

''Tak and the Power of Juju'' is a series of {{platformer}}s that was later adapted into an AllCGICartoon TV series made in 2007 by the Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} network. In the game, Tak is a boy who is the apprentice of a jungle-dwelling tribe's Shaman. When the tribe's patron Juju (god), The Moon Juju, is captured by the evil shaman Tlaloc, she is supposed to be rescued by a prophesied hero. But the tribe's greatest warrior, Lok, was also turned into a sheep by Tlaloc. So Tak gets sent in a series of quests to find the means to restore him to normal. It eventually turns out that it was Tak himself who was the hero all along. The game has had four sequels so far.

The cartoon, which serves as the 24th member of the Franchise/{{Nicktoons}} brand, drops most of the adventure elements from the game and instead focuses on the comedic ones. ''Everyone'' in the show is an idiot, though some are dumber than others. [[RapidFireComedy The gags come fast one after another]], with common sense and even reality taking a backseat. In most episodes (each of which contains two stories) Tak himself is to blame for the problem going on, by causing them or making them worse. Tak is often helped by Jeera, the {{tomboy}} daughter of the tribe's chief. The [[NightmareFuel utterly bizarre]] Jujus are also usually involved. Lok is also in the series, still admired as a hero when he's really just a boastful coward ([[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist not that Tak is much better]].) Some of the jokes [[RefugeInAudacity cross the line of good taste]] occasionally.

!!Tropes seen in games and TV series include:

* AbsurdityAscendant: The TV show is full of this.
* TheAce: Lok is presented as such in the first game... [[ButtMonkey and proceeds to be mocked relentlessly from then on]].
* AllJustADream: The entire second game. OrWasItADream
* AnimatedAdaptation
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: When Jibolba describes the plight of the Pupanunu people in the first game, he calls the Moon Juju "good, and wise, and pretty." Then he mentions Tlaloc having imprisoned her, and states that Tlaloc isn't good or wise, "and he's ''certainly'' not pretty."
* BalefulPolymorph: Tlalok's sheep curse. He turns Tak into several different animals in quick succession during the first game's final boss fight.
* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: Tak uses Tlaloc's own tricks to defeat him.
* BorderPatrol: The electric jellyfish in the original game.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: The first game opens with Jibulba summoning a mighty Juju to guide Tak through his adventure. This turns out to be the player. Jibulba marvels at the "power stick" the player holds, and the "mystic box" the player watches him on, noting that it is clearly "the most important thing in your hut."
* ButtMonkey: Tak, Lok and basically everyone else at one point or another.
* TheChewToy: Lok tends to get screwed over pretty much all the time.
* CanonForeigner: The majority of characters from the show.
* TheChosenOne: Jibulba names Lok as the Mighty Warrior of the Pupanunu People's Prophecy at the start of the first game. He's wrong. It's Tak.
* CloudCuckooLander: Pretty much everyone who isn't Tak... and even he has his moments.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Lok may be a self absorbed idiot, but he actually ''can'' back up his talk when he decides to fight, proving to be both stronger and a better warrior than Tak. He ''was'' thought to be the chosen one after all.
* TheDitz: Lok
* DoggedNiceGuy: Tak in the TV series towards Jeera.
* DumbMuscle: Lok is a class-A idiot, but he's also incredibly strong.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: A curse turns the Chief into one.
* FatBastard / FatIdiot: Chief
* FakeUltimateHero: Lok
* FetchQuest: The ''entire'' first game is a long string of fetch quests.
* GRatedDrug: The love potion from "Love Hurts".
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Plenty all over the place.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Tak beats Tlaloc in the first game by [[spoiler:Having a polymorphed Flora [[TreeBuchet fling Tlaloc]] into his own giant Bad Juju cauldron, turning him into a sheep.]]
* IdiotHero: Tak becomes on in the TV show.
* ItWasWithYouAllAlong
* JerkAss: Quite a few characters, particularly in the show.
* LifeMeter: Exhibited by changing colors in the feather on Tak's head.
* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: Tak has appeared in two titles THQ's ''NicktoonsUnite'' crossover game series.
* NinjaButterfly: Juju Flora. Flea!Jibulba in the real world in the second game. In the dream world, it's the Dream Juju. [[spoiler:AKA Tlaloc.]]
* OnlySaneMan: Tak in the games. Jeera in the TV show.
* SaveThePrincess: The second game appears to be a basic SaveThePrincess plot, with the dream world thrown in for flavor. Turns out [[spoiler:there is no princess, just Pins and Needles [[TotemPoleTrench on top of each other]], and the "Horrible Beast" Tak takes out is the Dream Guardian. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Oops.]]]]
* SuperDrowningSkills: Lok takes damage whenever he enters water in ''The Great Juju Challenge'' -- not because he can't swim, but because he attracts angry fish. (If the water is full of gators, Tak's no better off.)
** SuperNotDrowningSkills: The Lobster Suit lets Lok walk around underwater indefinitely.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Fauna and Flora
** In the TV series Jeera and Zaria.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Lok bullies Tak in certain episodes of the animated series whereas in the games he was, while obnoxious and only occasionally helpful, very supportive of Tak to the point of being a wannnabe BigBrotherMentor.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Pins and Needles.
* TreeBuchet: Used in the game.
* TrickBoss: The second game has you fight [[spoiler:Tralok in his sheep form and a herd of black sheep, before both Tak and him turn into [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons dragons]] for the real battle.]]
* TwentyBearAsses: Those blasted Yorbels... and you need a ''lot'' of them.
* UnexpectedGameplayChange: Powder Canyon and Numa Dunes change the game from a platformer to ''Tony Hawk''-style extreme sports. Similarly, the boss fights against Pins and Needles later in the game take the form of fighting on ostriches or a VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution-style dance-off.
* TheUnintelligible: Needles.
