''Link and the Hyrule Gang'' is a series of YouTubePoop videos created by [=MechaWeegee91=] focusing on TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames, notable for their use of ManipulativeEditing to give the characters complete scripted lines, giving the [[DiscreditedMeme normally-tired characters]] a fresh feel. There are thirteen videos total, the first of which can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ry3HoIMkMYY here]].

!!This series contains examples of:

* AnimatedActors: In Episode 5, Gwonam dreams about a recreation of the original cutscene, with the wrong characters playing the roles.
* BerserkButton: Harkinian ''hates'' when Link says [[DiscreditedMeme "Gee, it sure is boring around here"]].
** He also goes ''nuts'' in Episode 4 when he finds out that his [[TrademarkFavoriteFood favorite cereal]], [[MythologyGag Munf Munf]], isn't being made anymore.
* BigBad: Parodied with Mario Head in Episode 8. Apparently, he's a serious enough threat to make King Harkinian scramble for his [[MythologyGag dinner blaster]].
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: The King's ListSong contains a few.
--> "Unmatched socks and dodongos, saying '[[CatchPhrase Mah Boi]]' and banging hoes..."
* BrickJoke: Several.
** Earlier on, Gwonam is ringing a bell in the background to Harkinian's annoyance. He does it ''again'' in Episode 9... in the bathtub.
** Episode 7 has Harkinian informing Link about stacks of money inexplicably in the fridge. Cue Episode 12, where he's tricked into taking the cinnamon challenge and is desperately trying to find cold water...
** Within Episode 12, Harkinian is irritated by Gwonam's fake PreviouslyOn speech and tells him that he'll kick his ass after the show. Then, at the end:
--> '''Gwonam:''' Kick time?
--> '''King Harkinian:''' Kick time! Ho-ho!
-->'''*smack*'''
-->[[{{Beat}} *beat*]]
--> '''King Harkinian:''' Told you I'd [[LiteralAssKicking kick your ass]].
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Link does this a ''lot''.
* CoolTeacher: Or... principal, rather, in [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Frollo]].
* CloudCuckoolander: Harkinian and Link.
* ClusterFBomb: Link delivers one after being denied pizza due to not having any money.
--> '''Link:''' Fuck fuckity fuck fuck fuck.
* CreepyChild: Link, at times.
--> "Why can't I just stay here and play with needles like every other normal kid?"
* DancePartyEnding: Parodied in Episode 2 when Link pulls out his iPod.
--> '''Operator:''' 911, emergency?
--> '''King Harkinian:''' Yes, I'm under attack by the [[TakeThat evil forces]] of Music/RebeccaBlack! Save me!
* DeadlyRoadTrip: [[spoiler: Ganon's resort]] in Episode 10 turns out to be one.
* DudeNotFunny:
** in-universe example in Episode 5, when Gwonam overhears Harkinian on the phone to Dr. Mario about Link.
-->'''Gwonam:''' Ooh, did he die yet?
-->''(beat)''
-->'''King Harkinian:''' So not funny, it's sad!
-->'''Gwonam:''' Ah, fuck you, Harkinian! You're not fun.
** In Episode 10, [[spoiler: Gwonam and King Harkinian fake their deaths.]] Zelda is not amused.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first half of the series tends to be more traditional... [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs in the YTP sense]], at least.
* EvilTeacher: Michael Rosen.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Michael Rosen is rude to his students, has downright tyrannical classroom rules, kills students for no apparent reason...but who can deny his humor and his enthusiasm for the career field he works in?
* FlatWhat:
--> '''Gwonam:''' Do you know why we're in a field today, Friend Harkinian?
--> '''King Harkinian:''' Hmmm... No. I wonder...
--> '''Gwonam:''' I'm going to torch your face.
--> '''King Harkinian:''' What?- OH! MY FACE! MY FACE IS ON FIRE!
* FreezeFrameBonus: Even if Link ''could'' read, his cookbook probably wouldn't have helped much.
** Rosen's classroom rules... fit his portrayal.
* GainaxEnding: Episode 11.
* HalfwayPlotSwitch: Episode 3 cuts to a ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' poop partway through, and then back.
* HeelFaceTurn: Gwonam, in a {{Flashback}} in Episode 5. He wasn't villanous, per say, but his attitude about Link sure changed.
* InstantHumiliationJustAddYouTube: Happens to poor Harkinian ''twice''. Episode 9 has his face torched by Gwonam on camera, and episode 12 has him tricked into taking the cinnamon challenge. The latter spreads enough to give the poor king a ZeroPercentApprovalRating.
* JerkAss: It would be easier to list who ''isn't'' a {{Jerkass}}. Even characters like [[CloudCuckooLander Link]] dip into this territory at times.
* JerkassRealization: Gwonam has one in Episode 5 when [[spoiler: it's revealed that Link is mentally ill, after the former cracked a joke asking if Link died yet]].
-->''"Oh my...I feel so awful."''
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: King Harkinian, particularly in Episode 12.
* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: In Episode 8, when a sad melody plays as Harkinian explains how scared he was of Mario Head.
--> '''King Harkinian:''' Who's playing that shit?
--> *{{Beat}} as the screen cuts to Gwonam with a record player*
--> '''Gwonam:''' ''What?''
* ListSong: The king sings an ''epic'' one in Episode 6 about things he likes, much to [[OnlySaneMan Gwonam's]] dismay.
* ManChild: Link.
** The King, at times.
* MyNameIsNotDurwood:
** Meta-example in Episode 10 as the annotations purposely get Link's name wrong. Some range from simple misspellings (Lank, Lunk) to completely different names (Buford).
** Among [[TheBully the other things]] he does to make Link's life miserable, Mary-O continues to call Link "Buttwad" throughout Episode 12. This penchant of his leads to a RantInducingSlight by Link near the end of Part 2.
** Link can't get Principal Frollo's name right. Lampshaded when Link leaves the principal's office.
--->'''Frollo:''' Is my name really that hard to understand?
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: "My squada-senses are tingling. What up?"
* MythologyGag: The series is rife with jokes about characters' meme-induced traits, even with [[ShoutOut specific references]] to other poops.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: The king has his bath interrupted in Episode 9 by Gwonam... who's also taking a bath.
* NoExceptYes:
--> '''Link:''' I gave up on your royal ass ''years'' ago.
--> [[{{Beat}} *beat*]]
--> '''Link:''' I still love you, though.
* NoFourthWall: Often, the characters manually provide scene transitions, speak directly to the audience, and whatnot.
* OnceAnEpisode: At the end of each installment starting with Episode 2, the characters join in with King Harkinian's memetic laughter, affectionately referred to as OAH-ing.
* OnlySaneMan: Gwonam and Harkinian, on a good day, regularly trade this role. For the most part, this role is left to Zelda.
* PaletteSwap: "Mary-o", TheBully of Episode 12.
* ParodyCommercial: For Linky-O's in Episode 9. After all, Linky-O's are filled with great stuff like vitamins and shit.
* PreviouslyOn: Played straight in Episode 8, and parodied brilliantly in Episode 12 Part 2.
* RantInducingSlight: From Episode 2.
--> '''Link:''' [[DiscreditedMeme Gee, it sure is bori-]]
--> '''King Harkinian:''' Enough! I'm going to go crazy if you don't stop saying that evil phrase at the start of each poop!
--> {{Beat}}
--> '''Link:''' Gee, it sure is b-
--> '''King Harkinian:''' ''UGH!''
--> '''*smack*'''
* ReadingTheStageDirectionsOutLoud:
--> '''Gwonam:''' Ganon!
--> '''Zelda:''' Ganon!
--> '''King Harkinian (looking over a script):''' Hmmm... "gay-nun".
* RunningGag: Gwonam's Koridian lingo. The others eventually can't take it any moreidai.
* SchmuckBait: A case of ground cinnamon ''just happened'' to be laying on the [[AdiposeRex food-loving king]]'s table.
* SelfDeprecatingHumor:
--> '''Zelda:''' You know this episode of ''Link and the Hyrule Gang'' sucks monkey fuck, right?
* ShowWithinAShow: Harkinian's own Youtube Poops in Episode 7.
* {{Squick}}: In-universe. Characters tend to not react well when the series displays ToiletHumor.
--> '''Gwonam:''' Ew. What in the holy mother of fuck is wrong with you?
* StylisticSuck: The king's ''first'' Youtube Poop in Episode 7. The others don't take it well.
--> '''King Harkinian:''' How was I supposed to know y'all'd [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext turn into self-destructing glass]] [[VideoGame/MarioIsMissing Weegees]]?
** Link later makes one in Episode 10.
* TakeThat: Several examples; against Music/RebeccaBlack in Episode 2 and the CD-i in general in Episode 7.
--> '''Morshu:''' CD-i, Zelda, Mario. You want it? It's yours, my friend, as long as you have enough stupid.
--> '''[[CloudCuckoolander Link]]:''' I'll take it!
** Link even pulls one against ''other Youtube Poops'' in episode 10; one of the reasons he likes being alone is "no [[RefugeInAudacity generic sex jokes]]".
* TemptingFate:
--> '''Gwonam:''' Agh! I done scrubbed the flooridais. What you gonna do, dirty them up again?
--> *Cue sounds of a dump truck pulling up and dumping its load.*
--> '''King Harkinian ([[JerkAss behind the wheel]]):''' ''Scrub.''
--> '''Gwonam:''' Ah, fuck...
* ToiletHumor: Usually averted. When it isn't, [[DudeNotFunny characters call each other out on it]].
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: At the beginning of Episode 12 we learn that Impa's in the hospital. It's never revealed at the end what it was for.
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: The king's subjects ''aren't'' happy when he's tricked into taking the cinnamon challenge [[InstantHumiliationJustAddYouTube on camera]].
