-->-- ''[[Videogame/TraumaCenter Awesome Center: Under the Awesome]]''

Nonsensical, almost WebAnimation/{{YouTube Poop}}-ish animated shorts parodies, created by Creator/{{Egoraptor}}. Usually {{affectionate|parody}}, mostly hosted on Website/{{Newgrounds}}, starting with the Metal Gear Awesome series and, like TheAbridgedSeries, spawning Awesome clones. Titles often go as such: [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto Grand Theft Awesome]], [[Film/{{Cloverfield}} Awesomefield]], and so on.

Their main weapons are exaggerating characters and flaws as well as random humor.

Find them [[http://www.newgrounds.com/collection/awesome.html here]].
!!Provides Examples Of:
%%* AffectionateParody: Usually.
* AluminumChristmasTrees: A lot of fans who didn't know much about ''VideoGame/TraumaCenter'' thought the bit where the doctor is asked to defuse an atom bomb was just a joke. It's really only a minor exaggeration of something that ''actually happens'' in the game.
* {{Angrish}}: Gears of Awesome
* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: [[invoked]]
** [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Legend of Awesome]] has Link doing this to Navi.
** [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Metal Gear Awesome]]
** [[VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus Shadow of the Awesome]]: "Hey asshole, if I wanted your help, I'd buy a fucking strategy guide!"
* ArtEvolution: The animation quality has noticeably improved since the first few installments. This was deliberate. While Metal Gear Awesome was animated with limited knowledge of flash animation, subsequent awesome cartoons were purposefully done sloppily at the request of MTV, who originally hosted them. Once Egoraptor was no longer animating for them, he was free to do them with as much production value as he cared to, compare Awesome Crossing and Awesome Center with their Reduxes and Awesome the Hedgehog to Awesome Chaotix (the 'sequel').
* ArtShift: When Snake says [[http://i.ytimg.com/vi/eEaxavOyq38/maxresdefault.jpg "Fine, jeez."]]
* AscendedMeme: Creator/DavidHayter saying "OHMYGODHOTNESSIWANNABANGYOU!" Even better when ''Egoraptor himself'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4NJ4KhWQNo says it BACK to him]].
* AxeCrazy: Marcus and Dom in ''Gears of Awesome''.
* BarelyThereSwimwear: In ''VideoGame/{{Dead or A|live}}wesome Extreeeme'' the three players have the option of actually playing beach volleyball or relaxing by the pool. The player character then asks what type or bathing suit they want her to wear.
-->'''Player Character:''' Would you like me to wear this elaborate, well designed bathing suit that shows off none of my body, OR this one that's just a bunch of strings?
-->'''Players:''' (in unison) Isn't it obvious?
-->'''Player Character:''' Well then, you'll just have to '''actually play the game! Ha haha!'''
* BecauseDestinySaysSo / TheChosenOne: Legend of Awesome.
-->'''Navi:''' You have to saaaaaaave the world.
-->'''Link:''' That's FAN-'''FUCKIN'''-TASTIC!
-->'''Navi:''' It's your responsibility.
-->'''Link:''' Oh, well I guess that makes sense.
* BerserkButton:
** In ''[[VideoGame/LANoire Awesome Noire]]'', mentioning to the police chief that he has a "double-chin thing".
** The release of [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} PokeAwesome]] happened to coincide with ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'''s release and the arrow to the knee meme, so the inevitable 'I took a solar beam to the knee' comments really pissed Arin off, especially since it was not intended to be a Skyrim reference.
* BigOlEyebrows: Snake's eyebrows defy description.
* BigOMG: The Villager in Awesome Crossing Redux, when Bianca asks him to draw on him.
* BigWhat: A rather epic one from Derek in Awesome Center Redux.
* CharacterExaggeration: Ranging from the ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' being raging jocks in ''Gears of Awesome'' to Mei Ling being annoying.
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Averted in ''Awesome Gaiden''.
* DerangedAnimation: All of them, but reaches its zenith in the completely insane Awesome Reach.
* TheDitz: [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Ash]] is [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] to this from his usual IdiotHero personality.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Just try listening to Awesome Reach and not think of a seriously hardcore gay sex scene.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:Vector]] in ''Awesome Chaotix''.
* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies
--> '''[[Videogame/TraumaCenter Tyler Chase]]:''' Doctor, my sister has cancer... ZOMBIE CANCER!!!
* ExtremeOmnivore: Solid Snake eats a gun in ''Metal Gear Awesome'' and a locker in ''Metal Gear Awesome 2''.
%%* EyeTake: Happens numerous times when the characters are shocked by some revelation. Lampshaded in Metal Gear Awesome.
* {{Fanservice}}:
** Mocked in [[VideoGame/DeadorAlive Dead or Awesome]]: EXTREEEEME
** Mocked differently in ''Awesome Gaiden'':
---> '''Ryu:''' ''HEY!'' There's a ninja with huge boobs over there.
---> '''Ayane:''' Hi.
---> '''[=EgoRaptor=]:''' A-ah cool?
* FastForwardGag: Used as a quick joke in ''VideoGame/MetalGear Awesome'', skipping over the scene where Otacon narrates his backstory... and pausing halfway to find Snake and Otacon about to make out.
* FlatJoy:
-->'''Navi:''' You ''saaaaved'' the ''wooorld!''\\
'''The World:''' Whoo-hoo.
* FollowTheBouncingBall: Gears of Awesome. "''WHERE'S MY WIIIIIIIIIFE?!''"
* FollowTheLeader: Many fans have tried to emulate his style, with varying results. (Examples: Franchise/{{Halo}}: Awesome Evolved and [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Awesome's Creed]])
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'': Guns of the Awesome was pretty good too.
* FreezeFrameBonus: Across several videos, even the stand-alone shorts. The credits to ''"Mr. Literal"'', for example, features part of the Pokerap (Electrode to Butterfree) as well as part of the credits to the movie ''Film/AmazingGrace''.
* FiveManBand: Awesome Chaotix, nigs
** TheHero - Knuckles
** TheLancer - [[VideoGame/{{Vexx}} Vex]] (or Vector)

* GeniusLoci: The Earth in Legend of Awesome, giving a flat "woo-hoo" upon being saved.
* GuideDangIt:
** [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Metal Gear Awesome]]
--->"Do you seriously think this is fucking fair?"
** Ironic, since The Colonel was supposed to tell Snake how to contact Meryl (and, in the sequel toon, how to defeat Psycho Mantis), but he killed him.
** And in [[VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Awesome Gaiden]]:
--> "Hey you bitch, I'm the strategy guide. You can't mess with me!"
--> "Thank god you're here."
--> "Don't worry pal, I'll sav--[stab]"
%%* {{Gorn}}: [[VideoGame/GearsofWar Gears of Awesome]]
* HaHaHaNo: Metal Gear Awesome.
-->'''Snake''': "Why is there a helicopter in the background?"
-->'''Miller''': "That's my stomach, I'm hungry."
-->'''Snake''': "Hungry for worms?"
-->'''Miller''': "No, hungry for wooooooords!"
-->[=*Both laughing*=]
-->'''Snake''': "[=HahahahaSHUT=] UP!" >:(
* HypocriticalHumor: In [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} PokeAwesome]], Pikachu yells at Venusaur for attacking him because his trainer said so and criticizes him for not walking away, but Pikachu was following Ash's orders and throwing Venusaur like a ragdoll because Ash told him to. Plus, he attacked first.
* HoYay: In-Universe in "Metal Gear Awesome", between Snake and Otacon while Egoraptor tries to fast forward through the game
--> '''Otacon:''' ...are you coming on to me?!
--> '''Snake:''' ''[To Egoraptor]'' Grrawwl, ''what?!'' Why the ''fuck'' did you stop on this part?!?!
--> '''Egoraptor:''' Oh, sorry...
%%* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming
* IFellForHours : In [[VideoGame/CrackDown Awesome Cracks Down]]
-->'''The Agent:''' Why the hell are you making fun of me? I just got exploded. Seriously. I mean look at me, I'm still flyin' through the air, and who knows where the hell I'm going to land. And even then I'm still going to be on fire. God.
** The [[Franchise/PrinceOfPersia Prince of Awesome]] is basically the eponymous Prince falling down a cliff for about a minute, at which point he resets time and gets dragged back up the cliff, before falling down the cliff again.
* InsurmountableWaistHighFence: Lampshaded in [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Resident Awesome 4]]
* JesusWasWayCool: Jesus appears in Metal Gear Awesome and fixes Snake's ear and talks like a hippie.
* JiveTurkey: [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog Awesome the Hedgehog]]:
--> '''Sonic:''' "Hey maaaaan, let's go save the world duuuuude, fo' rizzle!"
--> '''Knuckles:''' "Yo yo yo B boy, that shit's fo' ''reel'', mothafucka! ''Shit''. ''Bitch''. Fuckin' ''ass'' and blat blat!"
** Pretty much 90% of the dialogue in [[VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix Awesome Chaotix]]
** Gray Fox/Deepthroat in Metal Gear Awesome 2 (but not in the original).
** Barret in the prototypical VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII parodies.
%%* LiteralMetaphor: Mr. Literal.
* MinorInjuryOverreaction: Pikachu freaks out over a knee injury in [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} PokeAwesome]]: Just A Pokemon Battle.
%%* MoodWhiplash: Awesome Chaotix.
%%* MushroomSamba: [[SuperMarioBros Super Awesome Bros.]]
* NintendoHard: [[VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Awesome Gaiden]].
--> '''Ryu:''' Oh, you think ''that's'' hard!? ''I'M JUST THE TUTORIAL LEVEL! THAT'S THE NEXT LEVEL OVER THERE!'' *cut to army of buff ninjas*
--> '''Buff Ninja:''' What's up?
--> '''[=EgoRaptor=]:''' Oh God, help me!
--> '''Ryu:''' ''GOD CAN'T HELP YOU NOW!''
* NotWithTheSafetyOnYouWont: Metal Gear Awesome.
--> '''Snake''': ''(to Meryl)'' The safety's on! ''(grabs her gun, twists it into a balloon dog, and'' ''eats it)''
* OhCrap: Awesome Gaiden
--> '''Strategy Guide:''' Hey you bitch! I'm the Strategy Guide! You can't mess with me!
--> '''[=EgoRaptor=]:''' Thank God you're here!
--> '''Strategy Guide:''' Don't worry, pal. I'll sa-''*stabbed, Ryu stares menacingly*''
--> '''[=EgoRaptor=]:''' Oh God...
* OnlySaneWoman: [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Tifa]] in Awesome Fantasy 7. Though it's not so much "sane" as "willing to actually fight without angsting".
* PalsWithJesus: Metal Gear Awesome shows Jesus aiding Snake a couple of times.
-->'''Jesus:''' It's cooool.
* PlayedForLaughs: The entire point of the series.
* PokemonSpeak: Enforced... sorta. Venusaur and Pikachu are both capable of speaking proper English. In Venusaur's case, he'll say what he means, and then correct himself with "I mean, Venusaur." In Pikachu's case, he doesn't start speaking English until he takes a solarbeam to the knee.
* PrecisionFStrike: Eggman in Awesome the Hedgehog
-->'''Eggman:''' Sonic will fall right into my trap.
-->'''Minion:''' But Tails is with him, sir!

--> *Jumpman takes Pauline*
--> '''Kong:''' Fuck.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: Gears of Awesome: "WHERE'S! MY! WIFE!"
** Complete with a sing-along bouncing O-face... dude... guy... thing from Awesome Center.
** From Awesome Reach:
--->"Ready doesn't even! ''Fucking!!'' '''''DESCRIBE IT!!!'''''
* ReCut: Awesome Crossing and Awesome Center got reduxes, which are extended versions of the original shorts with extra jokes and ''much'' higher quality art.
* RecycledINSPACE: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73vVm3pwD4w Metal Gill Jawesome]]: It's Metal Gear Awesome [-WITH MARINE ANIMALS!-]
%%* RuleOfCool: [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Awesome May Cry]]
%%* RuleOfFunny: {{Flanderization}} occurs to abide by this rule.
* ShownTheirWork: Many of these parodies, no matter how deranged or random, show that Egoraptor ''has'' played the games before. For example, Snake hiding cigarettes in his stomach, ridiculous as it sounds, was actually in the game, and Meryl's Codec number is actually the same one from the game.
* SuddenlyShouting: The transition from seriousness to weirdness in ''Awesome Center'' is rather... abrupt.
-->'''Angie:''' There are deep lacerations in the sternum... ''WHERE ALIENS HAVE TAKEN OVER HIS BOAAAAAAAADYYY!!!''\\
'''Derek:''' ''[[BigWhat WHOOOOAAAAAAAAT?!]]''
* SurrealHumor: The parodies of the subjects are so extreme that they become this, as well as the expressions. Dear God, the expressions.
* TakeThat:
** Awesome Reach is essentially one long insult to fans of ''VideoGame/HaloReach''.
** ''[[Film/{{Cloverfield}} Awesomefield]]'', a fan-made contribution, has a low opinion of the movie.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a10vdAZPxqU PSP Squirrels!]]
** Egoraptor hates ''VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix''. So...
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch:
** Awesome Gaiden: "Hey, you bitch! I'm the strategy guide!"
** [=PokeAwesome 2=]: After Brock gives Ash a gym badge for his resourcefulness, he tries to convince Ash that he really wasn't defeated, even though Ash wants to display to the world that he defeated Brock. Later that night, he finds Ash fucking his wife.
-->'''Ash:''' DEFEATED NOW, BITCH!?
%%* TrialAndErrorGameplay: Metal Gear Awesome again.
* UnstoppableRage: Clyde from Pac Awesome
-->'''Pinky:''' Wow, dude. You suck.
-->'''Clyde:''' [+'''SHUT THE FUCK UP!'''+] *Bites off Pinky's head*
-->*Blinky backs away slowly*
** What about Ryu In Awesome Gaiden? Not even the Strategy Guide could stop him!
* ViewersAreGeniuses: The "Hungry for Worms?"/"Hungry for Words" exchange in Metal Gear Awesome, at first glance, seems like a case of the Awesome Series' usual utter nonsense, but it is actually an obscure reference to a set of 1980's [=PSAs=] from the "Reading is Fundamental" educational campaign. According to one interview with Egoraptor, "Itís one of those things that when you are a kid, sticks in your head and for some reason known only to you, it remains funny."
%%* VolumetricMouth: Often.
* WaterfallPuke: Pikachu in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHG-JO8gIGk PokeAwesome]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Pikachu delivers one to Ash and Venusaur after his knee injury, pointing out some of the FridgeLogic behind the Franchise/{{Pokemon}} series.
* YouJustToldMe: From the first Metal Gear Awesome:
-->'''Psycho Mantis:''' You like men!
-->'''Snake:''' ''You can see into my mind?''
-->'''Psycho Mantis:''' No.
-->'''Snake:''' Fuck.
