WHAAAT is this page?

A bizarre series created by Creator/{{Egoraptor}} that parodies and [[DeconstructorFleet massively deconstructs]] poorly animated and dubbed {{Shonen}}. It currently has three episodes and a fourth episode was planned, however, Egoraptor stated [[http://youtu.be/sMnnYth3X-A?t=27m40s here]] that the show is on [[SeriesHiatus permanent hiatus.]]

It follows the adventures of Kenstar and his TrueCompanions on a vaguely defined quest to kill the BigBad Galacticamaru.

Episode 1 can be seen [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/484273 here]], episode 2 [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/510074 here]] and episode 3 [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/533395 here]].

[[TheWikiRule Has a]] [[http://girlchan.wikia.com/wiki/Girlchan_Wiki wiki.]] Seriously.

Compare to: KawaiiBattleStars and LargeBagel.

-----
!!WHAAAAAAAAT are these tropes?

* AccentOnTheWrongSyllable: Kenstar and Yusuke fall victim to this frequently.
--> '''Kenstar''': What IS this!? WHAT is this secret powUR!?
* ActionBomb: [[spoiler:The Green Guy's number one ability.]]
* ActionHoggingOpening: The opening contains a lot more action and scenery than the rest of the show.
* AnimatedActors:
** Kenstar begins to quote The Green Guy before realizing that it's not his line in episode 3.
** Taken into full-effect when [[spoiler:The Green Guy's actor is pissed over his character's HeroicSacrifice, thus removing him from the story after three episodes and only allowing for a flashback... in episode 23.]] He is not amused, leading to an understandably [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]] use of a DubInducedPlotHole and ViewersAreMorons.
* AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle: At the end of episode 3.
* AnimationBump: Yusuke is actually pretty well animated compared to the other characters and usually actually has lip-syncing consistent with whatever he's saying.
* AnimeHair: Including your typical ShonenHair, Kotomaru's [[HairAntennae twin antennae]], Galacticamaru's Guile-esque flattop and Girl-Chan's incomprehensible hairdo. One of the punks in Episode 2 also has a ''sideways'' pompadour.
* {{Angrish}}: "That Kotomaru... '' WOOOAAHHHHH GRRAHAHHHH! ''... he really steams me up!"
* ArtEvolution: Episode 2 is much better-looking than episode 1, and episode 3 looks better than that.
* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: The "Japanese" in episode 2 is "...just a bunch of gibberish, like an amalgamation of sounds [Egoraptor] just conjured up from [his] memories of so many animes." Subverted in the last line, which fits the situation rather well.
--> ''Oh shit! Sore wa Kenstar-kun, senpai! Hayaku, iku ze!''
--> Oh shit! It's Kenstar, senpai![[note]]Literally Upperclassman, but Boss works here[[/note]] Hurry, let's go!
* AttackAttackAttack: Yusuke's usual strategy. It never works.
* AuthorAvatar: The Artist.
* AxCrazy: In Kotomaru's case, Gun Crazy.
* BadBadActing: Lots to go around.
* BetterThanABareBulb
* BigBad: Galaticamaru.
* BlatantLies: "It's simple."
** "That explains everything!"
* BlushSticker: Both the green guy and Girl-chan.
* ButtMonkey:
** The green guy.
** Yusuke as well, whose constant attempts of "attacking head on" always [[WorfEffect ends with him being knocked back]].
*** Or falling down a flight of stairs, [[RuleOfFunny even if there isn't one]].
* CampGay: Fire Guy. [[JustForPun He's a flamer!]]
* CallingYourAttacks: ULTIMATE! PENCIL! A-BREAK!
* CatchPhrase:
** "WHAAAAAAAT is this X?"
** "WHHUUUT!!?"
** "That explains everything!"
** "I'm going to attack him head on!"
* ChekhovsGun: In episode 2; it's done in a somewhat deliberately forced manner. "THERE... is a bucket of water, over there."
* CreditsGag: Presented as if it's a real localization of some obscure fighting anime, complete with Korean names (including [[TheKingOfFighters Kim Kaphwan]]) for the outsourced in-betweening animation.
* CulturalTranslation: {{Parodied}}. The team is quite blatantly eating sushi, but refers to it as "hot dogs" and their chopsticks as "flavor sticks." [[ExaggeratedTrope And THEN,]] Kotobaru-san-sama gives Yusuke some "flapjacks and syrup" (rice and soy sauce, respectively). Galacticamaru even mistakenly identifies the "hot dogs" as "hamburgers".
* CurbStompBattle: Kenstar against the AuthorAvatar no less.
** Yusuke's MegatonPunch to Galacticamaru.
** Kenstar defeating all but the last Bushido Blaster (and Yusuke) with one kick in Episode 3.
* CurseCutShort: Lampshaded in episode 3. Yusuke draws out his "FFFFFFFF..." but proceeds to finish the curse anyways.
* DeconstructiveParody
* DefeatMeansFriendship: [[{{Dissimile}} Except without the actual "defeat" part.]]
** Kotomaru seems to be first introduced as a villain ([[EvilIsPetty apperently he destroyed a]] [[MundaneMadeAwesome WHOOOOOOLE KITCHEN]] and they ask Kotobaru-san-sama to defeat him). He then joins the party for no reason (though his inner monologue suggests he's some kind of TheMole, like ''everyone else''). Or the two could just be friendly rivals with a common enemy.
** Yusuke turns out to be in league with Galaticamaru. Him and Kenstar are going to fight. They don't actually end up getting to it, and Kenstar simply askes Yusuke to join them [[HeelFaceTurn which he agrees to for no reason]].
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment:
** Used fairly often, with the biggest example being in episode 3.
---> '''Kenstar:''' His true power is unleashed! His true power has taken off the leash! His true power has beeeeeen activated! His true... his true power...
---> '''Crew member:''' [[BreakingTheFourthWall You okay there, sport?]]
---> '''Kenstar:''' I'm fi... His true power is incredi... ble...
** The title of the theme song is "Hot Heat". (The title of the closing theme is "Cold Heat".)
* DerangedAnimation
* DetachedSleeves: Kotomaru has no shirt, only sleeves.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: Green Guy.]]
* DistaffCounterpart: Maytag in episode 3 is one of Kenstar, in appearance.
* DramaticWind
* DubInducedPlotHole:
** Kenstar calls Yusuke "My brother, but also my biggest rival" in the first episode, but later, in the same one, doesn't know who either of Yusuke's parents are, or that Kobayashi-sama-san-chan was his brother. In the second and third episodes, Yusuke calls Kenstar his brother.
** An even better example is the poorly-executed attempt to write the green guy back in [[spoiler: after his death]].
* DullSurprise: Ken-Star's blank-looking face most of the time.
** Kotomaru, who sometimes takes his stoicism a little ''too'' far (though eventually subverted with his FreakOut in episode 3.)
--> '''Kotomaru''': *in the middle of a mass OhCrap reaction* "Huh. Oh no. Huh."
* {{Expy}}: Kotomaru suspiciously resembles [[Manga/ExcelSaga Il Palazzo]], complete with the long grey hair, [[{{Megane}} sexy glasses]], pseudo-badass attitude... and the gun.
* FaceFault: In episode two after Kenstar's OffscreenTeleportation to the roof.
--> '''Punk:''' The roof ''is'' kinda slippery.
* FanService: Parodied with Girlchan.
* FanserviceCover: Newgrounds uses pictures of Girlchan's breasts and behind as thumbnails for the second and third episodes, respectively.
* FilmingForEasyDub: It is staggering how often this is used.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Kenstar;
** TheLancer: Yusuke;
** TheSmartGuy: Kotomaru;
** TheBigGuy: Kotobaru-san-sama;
** TheChick: Girlchan;
** TagalongKid: The Green Guy.
* {{Flanderization}}: Yusuke is introduced into the series as a parody of a typical {{Rival}}/AntiHero character with a MysteriousPast who lacks the strength to put up with the main hero, but eventually becomes the overconfident ButtMonkey who [[TheWorfEffect never actually gets to beat anyone]]. {{Lampshaded}} by Kenstar when Yusuke manages to defeat Galacticamaru during lunchtime.
* FreakOut: Kenstar at the end of the second episode.
* GagBoobs: Girl-chan. Taken UpToEleven in the second episode.
* {{Gainaxing}}: It's Girl-chan's thing.
* GilliganCut
* GogglesDoNothing: The Green Guy.
* GratuitousEnglish / GratuitousJapanese: In the same conversation.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Yusuke's father had an affair with the goddess of wisdom. [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope But then it turns out that she had an abortion and he just later slept with some random woman.]]]]
--> '''Yusuke:''' It's true. It's my...TERRIBLE SECRET PAST!!!
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Yusuke changes sides at least OnceAnEpisode.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: The Green Guy's]] number one ability... and apparently his ''only'' one.
** Probably better called StupidSacrifice. He used his number one ability to kill a girl whose power was putting price tags on things.
* HighClassGlass: Kotobaru-san-sama.
* HongKongDub: It's rare that the voices will actually match the lip flaps. Kenstar and Kotomaru are the biggest offenders.
** Completely averted with Yusuke, and ''only'' Yusuke.
* HospitalityForHeroes: The heroes temporarily defeat a villain, and the restaurant manager gives them a free meal. Kotomaru shoots him, correctly reasoning that the owner would never give out anything for free. They find the real owner tied up in a closet, and free him. As thanks, he gives them a free meal. [[spoiler:He gets shot too.]]
* HotBlooded: Even the author is HotBlooded.
* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: Yusuke does this to ''himself'' with Kotomaru's gun when he hears he ran out of bullets (he gets better).
* InconsistentDub: Are they Captains or Bushido Blasters?
** Or Taishos? Or [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs Bushido Captain Blasters? Or Captain Taisho Bushido Blaster Busters?]]
* InformedAbility:
** Kotobaru-san-sama is supposedly a skilled fighter, is said to be the only one able to defeat Kotomaru and apparently mastered the Shiken-batsu-baku-matsu-hatsu-datsu technique, but none of this is ever actually seen on-screen.
** Kotomaru himself as well. While he has shown his ''secret power'', he has never put this power to use and like Kotobaru-san-sama, he mainly stays in the background. And shoots people with a gun. Usually not the bad guys.
* InsistentTerminology: ''They are hot dogs!''
* InternalMonologue: Used frequently.
* InnerMonologueConversation: the episode 2 instance of it provides the page quote, and is an example of ''both'' types of responses.
* JapaneseHonorifics: [[GratuitousJapanese Shamelessly abused]], especially with names like Kotobaru-san-sama and Kobayashi-sama-san-chan.
* {{Keet}}: Green Guy typically talks like a wacky cartoon character.
--> '''Green Guy:''' Wowie wowie zowie!
* KillItWithWater: Kenstar does this to defeat the [[WeaksauceWeakness "invincible"]] first Bushido Blaster, whose "unstoppable" secret technique is [[ManOnFire catching himself on fire]].
* LampshadeHanging: A couple of times. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] when Kenstar calls [[DistaffCounterpart Maytag]] beautiful.
--> ''Yusuke: You're only saying that because she looks just like [[BaitAndSwitch a pretty]] [[CompletelyMissingThePoint girl!]]''
--> ''Kenstar: That would be why I said it!''
* LargeHam: Pretty much everyone in the series.
* LateForSchool: "I am late for the end of school! *runs to school with a piece of toast in his mouth, with the toast ''still in the toaster''* *final bell rings* Oh, I am ooooon time."
* LimitedAnimation: Parodied with Green Guy [[spoiler:after his voice actor demands that he be rewritten into the show]] "as cheaply as possible". In the form of a cut out with the lower half missing.
* LipLock: Its use is especially noticeable at the end of episode 1.
--> '''Kenstar:''' I'm going to have to use my sup... my secret technique... that only I can use because of my-... *sneezes* my bloodline!
* MadLibsCatchPhrase:
** "(Hello) Puny, humans / mortals / eukaryotic beings!"
** "Galacticamaru isn't a human / is immortal / is a prokaryotic being! That explains everything!"
* MegatonPunch: Yusuke to Galacticamaru in Episode Three.
** ATwinkleInTheSky: Same.
* MisterBig: Galacticamaru is revealed to be about six inches tall in episode 3.
* TheMole:
** Yusuke, as Captain #31, is Galacticamaru's mole in the TrueCompanions.
** Turns out [[spoiler: Swirly Glasses]] is Captain #1.
** Obliquely referred to in regards to Kotomaru in episode 2.
--> '''Kotomaru:''' (inner monologue) Huh. They were right about him. He really is the one.
** And again:
--> '''Kotomaru:''' (inner monologue) Huh. Kenstarreallyistheonenobodybuthimcouldhavedonethat.
* MoodWhiplash: Girlchan goes from funny and hot to [[FetishFuel creepy and hot.]]
* MrExposition: Kotomaru.
* MsFanservice: Girlchan takes this UpToEleven.
* MysteriousParent: Kenstar and Yusuke's Mom.
* MysteriousPast: Yusuke.
* NarratingTheObvious:
-->'''Kenstar:''' Yusuke is bowing to Galacticamaru right in front of us on his knee there!
* NegativeContinuity: Some degree throughout the series, but most notable between episodes one and two. Episode one ends with Yusuke revealing his allegiance to Galacticamaru, Kenstar about to use his bloodline power... and then episode two completely forgets it ever happened, including it coming as a surprise that Yusuke is a Bushido Blaster.
* NoodleIncident:
-->'''Yusuke:''' Do you remember the playground we went to as a kid?
-->'''Kenstar:''' AAAAAAAAH, so ''that'' was the...
-->'''Yusuke:''' Yes, now you understand! [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment And now we must fight, right now!]]
* NoNameGiven: The fellow in the green clothes and goggles doesn't really ''have'' a name, although Egoraptor sometimes calls him "The Guy". On this page, he's called [[FanNickname "The Green Guy"]] so you know who we're talking about.
* ObliviousToLove: Yusuke. Girlchan wishes she could be his love interest, but he is "incapable of love, due to his [[MysteriousPast dark and brooding past.]]" Episode 3 suggests he might just despise her.
* OffModel: Occasionally, the animation, especially the mouth movements, will go OffModel, or fill the screen with bizarre shapes.
* OnlySaneMan: Kenstar has some lucid moments, although he doesn't always act like that.
* OnTheNext: A particularly poorly executed one in episode 3.
* OpaqueNerdGlasses: Swirly Glasses [[CaptainObvious has the kind marked by spirals.]]
* OverlyLongName: Kotobaru-san-sama uses this in episode 1:
-->'''Kotobaru-san-sama:''' I used up all my strength, using the Shi... Shiken-batsu-baku-matsu-hatsu-datsu technique.
-->'''Green Guy:''' What?! The Shiken-batsu-baku-matsu-hatsu-datsu technique? Are you serious? How did you even manage?
-->'''Kotobaru-san-sama:''' I've recieved training... from the [[NinjaPirateRobotZombie Mythical Bobcat Dragon Demon Clan]]... on the peak of Mount... Hutsu-maku-hentaku-benkai...
* OutOfCharacterAlert: Kotomaru immediately identifies the imposter restaurant owner and kills him because the real owner would never give out a free meal. PlayedForLaughs when the gang finds the real owner, who offers a free meal as repayment and promptly gets shot too.
* PointlessBandaid: Kenstar wears one across the bridge of his nose, as does Maytag, his DistaffCounterpart.
* PrecisionFStrike:
-->'''Yusuke:''' Ffffffffffffffff...
-->'''Kenstar:''' [[LampshadeHanging Is this the episode where we say the F word]]?
-->'''Yusuke:''' Do you mean ffffffffffffffffuck?
** Also PlayedForLaughs since that word was used once before and after that occurrence, along with it being written in episode one.
* ProductPlacement:
-->'''Kenstar''': There...is a bucket of water over there!
-->'''Yusuke''': Who cares about stupid water you fools? We're not defeating thirst!
-->'''Kotomaru''': '''''I AM!''''' ''[dramatic close up of a C.C. Lemon bottle]''
* ReactionShot: Someone is shocked on average every 30 seconds in the show.
* RecklessGunUsage: Kotumaru's hair trigger was bad enough, but then we have [[PlayedForLaughs this gem]]:
-->'''Kotumaru:''' "I'm out of bullets, anyway!"
-->'''Yusuke:''' "Then that means I... can do this!" *''[[TooDumbToLive BANG]]''*
** [[UnexplainedRecovery He gets better.]] five seconds later.
* RedOniBlueOni: Kotobaru-san-sama and Galacticamaru. Perhaps literally.
* TheReveal: "That ''EXPLAINS'' everything!" [[{{Subverted}} It usually doesn't.]]
* TheRival: Yusuke is both this and TheLancer to Kenstar.
* RunningGag: "THAAAAAT explaaaaaaains everything!"
* SacrificialLion: Subverted. [[spoiler:The Green Guy]] dies in episode 3, but is written back in not even two minutes later with the explanation of, and we quote, "[[HandWave I am no longer dead]]."
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: [[spoiler:Swirly Glasses]] upon revealing that he is the last captain.
--> '''[[spoiler:Swirly Glasses]]:''' Lightning... pchuuuu...
* ScheduleSlip:
** Episode 3 was supposed to come out by the end of March 2010. Due to unforeseen circumstances, it took until April 14th to finally come out.
** And Episode 4 sure is taking a while.
* ScriptBreaking: Kenstar gets tired of fighting the 32 captains one by one, causing him to roundhouse kick the picture of all the remaining dark silhouettes, which somehow defeats them all at once, except for [[TheDragon # 1]].
* SecondaryCharacterTitle: Girl-chan only appears a handful of times and accomplishes absolutely nothing, while the real main character is Kenstar.
* ShoutOut: The opening theme contains lyrics from the ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' theme song. ("Listen to your heart, listen to the beat, listen to the rhythm of the street")
* SingleMindedTwins: The thermopylae twins in episode 3. Mostly.
* SinisterSilhouettes: 31 of the 32 Captains are shown as this, along with a completely normal picture of Yusuke.
* SkywardScream: "MOTHERRRR!!!"
* SmugSnake: Kotomaru.
* SplitScreenReaction: Episode 3 has a truly impressive one.
* StockFootage: Pretty much everything. A notable case in episode 3 has Yusuke falling down stairs, while fighting ''outside''.
** Kenstar is almost always seen in the same pose with the same vaguely determined expression, and Kotomaru is almost always seen in the same arm-crossed, eyes-closed, sort-of irritated pose.
* TheStoic: Kotomaru is this, even when startled. [[OutOfCharacterMoment Subverted once]].
-->'''Kotobaru-san-sama:''' [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer Dude, just because you have the gun]]--
-->'''Kotomaru:''' I DON'T CARE! OKAY?! I'M OUT OF BULLETS ANYWAY!
* StylisticSuck: The voice acting and animation.
* SweatDrop: Kotobaru-san-sama has one of these, and then he eats it. Seriously.
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted.]] While the heroes are talking about [[{{Irony}} needing to do something to stop him from powering up,]] [[spoiler:Swirly Glasses finishes powering up.]]
* TechnoBabble: Kotomaru gives a long-winded, nonsensical explanation to the origins of the Bushido Blasters, involving giant equations and the phases of the moon. Kenstar, of course, remarks [[BlatantLies "That explaaaaaaains everything!"]]
* ThemeNaming: Kenstar is also the name of a brand of appliances; his DistaffCounterpart, Maytag, shares this.
* ThereWasADoor: Galacticamaru always appears before the G-Fighters by breaking through a brick wall, even if they're nowhere near one.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: An in-universe example. When [[spoiler:[[AnimatedActors Kenstar is arguing with the Green Guy]] about his HeroicSacrifice in episode 3]], he invokes this trope, saying that they have fans who are devoted to the integrity of the original series. The Green Guy counters by invoking [[ViewersAreMorons another trope]].
* ThoseTwoGuys: Kotomaru and Kotobaru-san-sama. They're often in the same shot together and talk to each other, and sometimes even {{MST}} the show. They also don't really do anything to contribute to the plot.
* TwinTelepathy: The twins in episode 3 play with this. It starts out played straight when they [[FinishingEachOthersSentences finish each others' sentences]], then it's subverted when the second twin finishes one incorrectly.
* UnexplainedRecovery: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] (or [[EnforcedTrope Enforced]], from an in-universe perspective). [[spoiler:Green Guy demands that his character come back from the dead, because he needs the paycheck.]]
* VerbalTic:
** Swirly Glasses and his "Nyeeheeheeheehee!"
** Also, Kotomaru's "Humph"s and "Huh"s.
** Galacticamaru has a habit of extending the voiceless alveolar sibilant at the end of his sentencesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss.
* ViewersAreGeniuses: Galacticamaru described the TrueCompanions as "puny eukaryotic beings", prompting Kenstar to realise that Galacticamaru was a "prokaryotic being". These are indeed mutually exclusive.
* ViewersAreMorons: Invoked by Green Guy's voice actor after [[spoiler: his character is killed in episode 3]].
--> These stupid kids ''cannot'' tell the difference, you ''know'' they can't!
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Yusuke, Kotomaru, and Kotobaru-san-sama.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Maytag's power is to put price tags on people.
** The other two Bushido Blasters who appear (aside from Yusuke and [[spoiler: Swirly Glasses]] count, being able to catch on fire and...owning a giant pencil. Being the kind of show it is, the party treats them all as serious threats, prompting the party (except Kenstar) to flat-out give up on one when Yusuke's [[AttackAttackAttack head-on attack]] doesn't work, and causing [[spoiler: Green Guy to perform a HeroicSacrifice]] for another.
* WidgetSeries
* WreathedInFlames: One of the enemy captains when he powers up.
* WordSaladLyrics: The lyrics to Hot Heat, which includes part of the opening to WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}.
--> Fisting my heart so angrily
--> It's alpha rays now, can't you see
--> I have a rival named Yusuke
--> [[ButtMonkey He's kind of strong, but mostly gay]]
* WordSaladTitle: Parodied. While there is a character named Girl-chan, she's a minor one at best. And no paradise has been sighted yet.
* TheWorfEffect: Yusuke's role in the series. {{Lampshaded}} in the third episode when he actually beats someone. Later he loses to ''a flight of stairs''. Lampshaded again when he attacks Captain #1 and immediately [[CrowningMomentOfFunny falls down the same stairs.]] ''[[StockFootage That weren't there.]]''
* WorfHadTheFlu: Kotobaru-san-sama can't defeat Kotomaru because he used up all his power using the Chicken-Patsu-Baku-Matsu-Hatsu-Datsu Technique.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* YourLittleDismissiveDiminutive: Galaticamaru always calls the heroes "Puny [X]" with X being humans, mortals, or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking eukaryotic beings]]. [[spoiler: Ironic, since when we do finally see him beside the other heroes in the third episode he's only about the size of a tennis ball, and even Yusuke can kick his ass pretty easily.]]
