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

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

Their main weapons are [[{{Flanderization}} exaggerating characters and flaws]] as well as random humor.

Find them [[http://www.newgrounds.com/collection/awesome.html here]].
-----
!!Provides Examples Of:
* AffectionateParody: Usually.
* {{Angrish}}: Gears of Awesome
* 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').
* AscendedMeme: DavidHayter saying "OHMYGODHOTNESSIWANNABANGYOU!"
** [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Even]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome better]] when ''Egoraptor himself'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4NJ4KhWQNo says it BACK to him]].
* AxeCrazy: Marcus and Dom in ''Gears of Awesome''.
* 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 ''[[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 [[DeadHorseTrope 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.
* CharacterExaggeration: Ranging from the [[GearsOfWar Gears]] being raging jocks in ''Gears of Awesome'' to Mei Ling being annoying.
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Averted in ''Awesome Gaiden''.
* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: In Awesome Kong, Pauline refers to Mario as a 'plumber' despite the fact that, in that game, he was a carpenter. Also Donkey Kong calls Pauline 'Princess', when Pauline was just Mario's girlfriend.
** He could be snarking about the princess comment.
* CreatorBacklash: Egoraptor claimed that, of all his Awesome cartoons, his least favourites were Awesome Cracks Down and Awesome Rising.
* DerangedAnimation: All of them, but [[{{Pun}} reaches]] its zenith in the completely insane Awesome Reach.
* DevelopmentHell: Egoraptor has hinted many times before of the rumored Metal Gear Awesome 3 and if he really has been working on it, It's taking an awfully long time.
** He recently stated he only has one joke for the proposed Metal Gear Awesome 3, so it might be a mild case of writer's block.
** A recent Q&A at {{Reddit}} reveals that he's working on it.
* TheDitz: [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Ash]] is [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] as this from his usual IdiotHero personality.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Just try listening to Awesome Reach and not think of a seriously hardcore gay sex scene.
** That scene was meant to illustrate intense gaming of two Halo fanboys, but I guess FreudWasRight.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mo1b9jhFzTU Indeed.]] (NSFW)
* 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?
--> '''Ryu:''' ''[[CurbStompBattle IT WOULD BE IF YOU WEREN'T GETTING YOUR ASS KICKED SO HARD!]]''
* FastForwardGag: Used as a quick joke in ''Franchise/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!''\\
'''[[GeniusLoci The World]]:''' Whoo-hoo.
* FollowTheBouncingBall: [[GearsOfWar 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]])
** MetalGearSolid4: 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 - [[{{Vexx}} Vex]] (or Vector)
** TheSmartGuy - Mighty
** TheBigGuy - Espio
** TheChick - Charmy
* FridgeLogic: {{Lampshaded}} In-Universe, as depicted players and game characters often have their moments mid-scene.
* GagPenis
** Awesome Man
** Awesome Reach
* GrossUpCloseUp: taken UpToEleven levels in Awesome Reach
* GeniusLoci: The Earth in Legend of Awesome, giving a [[FlatJoy flat "woo-hoo"]] upon being saved.
* GenreSavvy: Mega Man in Awesome Man.
-->'''Wily:''' OOHOOHOOHOO! I have created-
-->'''Mega Man:''' Eight Robot Masters and you plan on taking over the world. *sigh* Look, can we just get this over with? My balls hurt.
* GuideDangIt: [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Metal Gear Awesome]]
-->"Do you really think this is fucking fair?"
-->"YA KNOW? SERIOUSLY. I'M GETTING A LITTLE ''FUCKING'' PISSED OFF!"
** 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 [[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}}: [[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 [[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.
* {{Jossed}}: In a sense. Some of Egoraptor's fans asked if he would do an awesome cartoon based on an animated series, which Egoraptor stated he didn't want to do as the Awesome series is very video game based.
* JiveTurkey: [[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 [[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, natch.
* 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: [[NinjaGaiden Awesome Gaiden]], natch
--> '''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'' ''[[ExtremeOmnivore 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-''*[[KilledMidSentence stabbed]], Ryu [[DeathGlare stares menacingly]]*''
--> '''[=EgoRaptor=]:''' Oh God...
* 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!
-->'''Eggman:''' Ffffffffffffffuck.
** Also used in [[VideoGame/DonkeyKong Awesome Kong]]
--> '''Kong:''' Ah, it's no big deal, I mean, what are the odds...
--> *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!!!'''''
* RecycledINSPACE: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73vVm3pwD4w Metal Gill Jawesome]]: It's Metal Gear Awesome [-[[UnderTheSea WITH MARINE ANIMALS!]]-]
* RuleOfCool: [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Awesome May Cry]]
* RuleOfFunny: {{Flanderization}} occurs to abide by this rule.
* ScheduleSlip: ''Metal Gear Awesome'' Part Two... postponed for ''one year''... on account of hiccups.
* StopHelpingMe: [[invoked]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Legend of Awesome]] has Link doing this to Navi.
** [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Metal Gear Awesome]]
-->"SHUT UP, FOR CHRIST'S SAKE, I KNOW HOW TO CLIMB A LADDERJESUSOWMYEAR."
-->"STOP FUCKIN' CALLING!"
** [[ShadowOfTheColossus Shadow of the Awesome]]: "Hey asshole, if I wanted your help, I'd buy a fucking strategy guide!"
** "{{VideoGame/Mega Man|Classic}}! Mega Man! There's a hole in the zipline that" *punch* "No, SHUT UP! I don't NEED you!"
* SurrealHumor: the parodies of the subjects are so extreme that they become this, as well as the expressions. [[UpToEleven 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!]]
*** Which [[Series/TheTester Sony]] probably didn't take too well...
** Egoraptor hates ''VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix''. So...
* TropeName: CRYPTIC METAPHOR
* 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 [[PublicServiceAnnouncement PSA's]] 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.
