[[caption-width-right:250:Meet the team: [[NationalStereoTypes Tails]], [[NoGuyWantsToBeChased Amy]], [[MsFanservice Rouge]], and [[IdiotHero Sonic]].]]
The '''''Sonic Zombie''''' series is a saga of StylisticSuck videos made in ''[[GarrysMod Garry's Mod]]'' featuring Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog and friends in the mist of a ZombieApocalypse. They were created by [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Balenaproductions Balena Productions]], who became famous for his ''Sonic in {{Film/Jaws}}'' video.

!!Tropes that appear:
* AbnormalLimbRotationRange: Happens with just about every character at some point, intentionally or [[SpecialEffectsFailure not]] thanks to always being dragged around by their heads.
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: [[spoiler:Cream and Knuckles, the later becoming the BigBad of ''Zombie Origins''.]]
** Some could say [[spoiler:Eggman, since in ''Vengeance'' he is the one that signals the Zombies' initial attack in the the large building, and later on he tries to use one to make Sonic a zombie himself. The experiment [[GoneHorriblyWrong malfunctions]], instead making Sonic into a "[[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed Hornhog]]" that takes delight in [[SerialRapist raping]] his victims to death. And since the Hornhog is not a full Zombie, Eggman cannot control him.]]
* BackFromTheDead:
** In ''Vengeance'', a record total of '''three''' characters ([[spoiler:Knuckles, Eggman, and Silver]]) are revealed to still be alive after the events of the previous videos.
** [[spoiler:Before that, in ''Diaries'', Shadow survives the implied DisneyVillainDeath he receives in ''Thing''.]]
** Now taken to the extreme with [[spoiler:the clones that appear in ''Space'', where a clone that is activated takes on the personality and memories of their real self's past life. Unfortunately they, minus the first Shadow clone, ally with a Dr. Eggman clone, forcing the heroes to destroy them]].
** It's also shown that [[spoiler:Silver survived [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice being impaled onto several telephone poles]]]].
* BadBadActing: This series is ''built'' off shoddy acting. Here's an example form ''Vengeance'':
--> '''Knuckles''': Sonic man, I got an idea. We can take up to that.. that crane thing up there that's what it's called I think a crane.
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:Silver's ultimate goal in ''Vengeance'' revolves around this. He knew that Sonic and co. would arrive on the island in search of food and shelter, only for zombies to attack, this attack forcing the group to divide up, with Sonic going alone and winding up captured by Eggman, who accidentally makes him into a Hornhog. This transformation eventually triggers Knuckles' appearance on the island (who became a vampire after surviving the nuclear explosion from ''Origins'') leading up to a brawl between Hornhog Sonic and Vampire Knuckles, eventually crossing over into the front grounds where Silver awaits for Sonic to finish off Knuckles, freezes them both at the last second, and snatches both their powers to become the MonsterOfTheWeek.]]
* BerserkButton: Don't ever say you used Tails' tacos to summon a giant monster.
** Or say you're hungry for one yourself. Amy found this out the hard way.
* CameraAbuse: In Gmod, the camera works very much like a tripod. Cue the numerous moments when someone decides to touch it and the camera topples over, sometimes sending it into a spinning frenzy or launching it across the room.
* CompanionCube: Tails' tacos.
* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler:Both Shadow and Eggman die in ''Thing'' this way. The former returns in ''Diaries'' and the later in ''Vengeance''.]]
* DullSurprise:
--> '''Sonic''': (in ''Origins'' [[spoiler:after Cream becomes zombified]]) Look out behind you.
* EpicFail: Due to the StylisticSuck nature of the videos, these are all over the place.
** The camera repeatedly getting [[CameraAbuse knocked over]] from moving the characters.
** Characters being locked up in place when the narrator tries to move them.
** As Sonic [[spoiler:and Baby Sonic]] battle the zombies in ''Diaries'', the narrator accidentally collects a zombie as he moves [[spoiler: the two]] Sonic[[spoiler:s]] around.
** When Rouge goes to greet Sonic at the front door in ''Origins'', she ''rips off the door''.
** Sonic destroying the table when he attempts to place down a large present in Rouge's house.
*** Shadow later does the same thing in Knuckles' cabin in ''Vengeance'', minus the present.
** ''Vengeance'' opens up with the main characters on a boat. Take a guess what happens.
** Both ''Diaries'' and ''Vengeance'' end with the heroes leaving via aircraft. ''[[spoiler:Both vehicles crash onscreen]]''.
** ''Space'' at one point has ''a door shut itself on all the characters'' as they try to enter a room. And then as they leave, a door shuts itself right on top of [[spoiler:Blaze]].
* EvilTwin: A plot point in [[spoiler:''Space'', where Amy accidentally releases a legion of evil clones controlled by a Dr. Eggman clone]].
--> [[spoiler:'''Evil Shadow''': And not only am I a clone, but I am an ''Evil Clone!'']]
* EveryEpisodeEnding: So far, every episode ends with the currently-alive cast escaping in aircraft. Helicopters are the most common..
--> '''Knuckles''': Wow, man that's kinda lucky, how often do you really think anyone would find a helicopter?
--> '''Amy''': Well actually we find one at like, the end of all these videos.
** Averted with ''Space''. While the characters do use a miniature spacecraft to depart form [[spoiler:Blaze's starship]], it is not where the episode ends.
* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies
* [[spoiler:FeedItABomb: After going Super, Sonic is instructed by Shadow to throw a bomb inside Knuckles to kill him]].
* FurAgainstFang: [[spoiler: Knuckles (who is revolved to have become a vampire after surviving the events of ''Origins'') and Sonic the "[[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed Hornhog]]" fight each other in ''Vengeance'' for a brief time.]]
* GagBoobs: To become Super Sonic in ''Origins'', Sonic grabs and forcefully rubs [[MsFanservice Rouge's]] boobs.
--> '''Sonic''': [[BreakingTheFourthWall This is gonna make one great preview image!]]
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Many of the monsters the heroes meet appear with little to no backstory, and are there [[MonsterOfTheWeek just to give the heroes something to fight]].
* GoForTheEye: When [[spoiler:Monster Silver suddenly appears on Blaze's starship, Sonic promptly throws a [[LaserBlade lightsaber]] into his eye]].
-->'''Sonic:''' May the hooba be with you.
* HilariousOuttakes: It is implied that every scene across the series is done in one take, and with no script, leaving anything in that would be considered an Outtake by normal standards.
* HollywoodToneDeaf: ''Origins'' gives us this:
--> '''Sonic''': Douching through the snow, driving my Hummer, which I don't really need, cause I'm only a single guy!
* [[ImAManICantHelpIt I'm a Woman, I Can't Help It]]: During the entire series Amy repeatedly requests to have sex with Sonic, hitting her breaking point in ''Space'', prohibiting her from getting any sleep during the night [[spoiler:on Blaze's starship, prompting her to get a clone of Sonic she could have sex with, accidentally releasing a legion of evil clones]].
* [[spoiler:ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: What finally defeats Silver after two attempts of world domination. He somehow [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat comes back]] in ''Space''.]]
* InterspeciesRomance: Sonic and Rouge both have sex out in the woods in ''Diaries'', [[spoiler:resulting in Rouge getting pregnant]].
** Tails attempts to get it on with [[spoiler:Blaze in ''Space''. It ultimately ends in tradegy following Blaze's discovery of [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Amy releasing all the clones the main cast had to kill]], despite receiving a congratulatory kiss from Blaze after Tails defeats all the clones of himself that also had the hots for Blaze]].
* {{Jiggle Physics}} / {{Ragdoll Physics}}: All over the place. Literally every character is dragged around by their head, leaving their other parts to swing around.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Cream is by far the only character that died and doesn't get resurrected in a future episode.]]
* KillTheCutie: [[spoiler: Baby Sonic and Cream are killed off only moments after being introduced.]]
* LukeIAmYourFather: Parodied in ''Space'' with Robotnik and Sonic.
-->'''Robotnik:''' They never told you what happened to heccch!
-->'''Sonic:''' They told me enough. They told me hooba dooba!
-->'''Robotnik:''' No! I am the heccch!
-->'''Sonic:''' No.
* MadeOfIron / NoOneCouldSurviveThat: Let's see exactly ''how'' our BackFromTheDead characters listed above were initially killed off:
** [[spoiler:Knuckles was bitten, died of disease, [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie became zombified]], [[OneWingedAngel morphed into two powerful monsters]], and [[EatTheBomb ingested an entire bomb]] that ''blows up in his stomach''. And then he's all fine by ''Vengeance'', save for now being a vampire, which ultimately becomes undone over the course of the video]].
** [[spoiler:Shadow and Eggman survive [[DisneyVillainDeath a lethal fall from a giant skyscraper]] that would surely kill any normal person. Not as awesome as what Knuckles had to go through, though]].
** [[spoiler:Silver got stabbed and thrown into the air with rather incredible force by Satan. Easily the least interesting of the survived "deaths" thus far]].
*** Later shown that [[spoiler:Silver still in his Monster form survived being impaled on several poles that he shouldn't be able to free himself from and comes back for the finale of ''Space'']].
* MaleGaze: Every time [[MsFanservice Rouge the Bat]] is in focus, the camera will almost always zoom into her breasts, often with sexual remarks from the narrator.
* MayTheFarceBeWithYou: ''Space'' is a very obvious parody of ''Main/StarWars'', with Blaze's starship being the Death Star and Sonic battling [[spoiler:a clone of Dr. Eggman]] with a [[LaserBlade Lightsaber]].
* TheMole: [[spoiler:Robotnik in ''Zombie Thing'', Silver in ''Zombie Diaries''.]]
* MonsterOfTheWeek: Every entry in the series has at least one. [[spoiler:[[Film/{{Alien}} Zombie]] [[VideoGame/MonsterHunter Knuckles]], {{Franchise/Godzilla}} with [[VideoGame/Left4Dead the Tank]], {{Satan}}, then [[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed Hornhog Sonic]] with [[OneWingedAngel Monster Silver]].]]
* NationalStereotypes: All over the place. The easiest and probably most offensive is Tails' Mexican heritage.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In yet another attempt to "do'' Sonic, Amy instead decides to [[spoiler:have sex with one of the many Sonic clones on Blaze's starship, accidentally releasing everyone else's clones, including Dr. Eggman's]].
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler:Sort of. If Satan didn't go and announce he used the power of Tails' tacos, he wouldn't be beaten to death by a young mexican fox who suddenly went insane.]]
* OhCrap:
** Cream when she meets a zombie face-first [[spoiler:and becomes the first victim in the series]].
** Rouge when she sees Cream being attacked [[spoiler:and Eggman's raped and dead body on the floor]]. Cue MaleGaze.
** Tails discovering his Tacos have vanished.
** Sonic when [[spoiler: Rouge reveals she got pregnant]].
*** And then Amy when she finds out.
** Tails' reaction to the initial zombie attack in ''Vengeance''
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:Zombie Knuckles and Monster Silver in ''Origins'' and ''Vengeance'' respectively.]]
* OurSloganIsTerrible: Sonic in this series is an employee at Pizza Hut, and throughout ''Thing'', he makes up many poor slogans.
* OverlyLongName: Given by the narrator via some [[SirSwearsALot colorful dialogue]] to Eggman in ''Vengeance'':
--> [=Dr. RoFatassf***ingFatFattyFatf***ingf***ingFatSonOfAB****F***ingFattyFat…=] Yeah, he’s pretty much [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment fat]].
* PantyShot: Unintended. Amy has these thanks to the RagDollPhysics of the characters.
* PerpetualPoverty: In effect starting from ''Vengeance''; the team repeatedly mentions not eating for days, but no one has shown signs of starving or being physically weaker from the lack of food. For instance, even on an empty stomach, Knuckles is still able to defeat a gang of zombies without receiving any type of body damage or bites.
* PowerIncontinence: Sort of. [[spoiler:Sonic's "[[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed Hornhog]]" form in ''Vengeance'' causes him to become hostile and having a thing for [[SerialRapist raping his victims]] to death. He can still speak and even questions what happened to him, though the main characters remain scared to approach Sonic in Hornhog form.]]
* RecycledInSPACE: ''Sonic Zombies [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin in Space]]''
* RedShirt: [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]], [[Franchise/SpiderMan Spider Man]], and [[Disney/WreckItRalph Ralph]] are brought on-screen for only a few seconds before they are axed off by the current MonsterOfTheWeek.
* RedSkyTakeWarning: What signals the appearances of [[spoiler:{{Godzilla}} in ''Thing'' and the zombies as a whole in ''Diaries'']].
* {{Satan}}: the BigBad of ''Diaries'', [[spoiler:summoned by Silver]].
* SealedEvilInACan: Thanks to the logic that [[spoiler:any of Blaze's clones that has a living counterpart on Earth that dies in some way inherits the memories of their deceased counterpart, the clone of Dr. Eggman accidentally released by Amy is just as dangerous as the real one Sonic killed an episode prior.]]
* SerialRapist: [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed Hornhog Sonic]]]]. The only one that sees this as a good thing is [[spoiler:Amy, since she is constantly trying to get near Sonic]].
* SkywardScream: Tails gives out one after his [[CompanionCube tacos]] go missing [[spoiler:thanks to Silver]].
** Sonic too when [[spoiler:Baby Sonic dies]].
* SorryImGay: Early in ''Origins'', Amy asks Sonic if he could "comfort her", followed by Sonic answering with this trope.
* {{Spexico}}: How Tails is portrayed.
* SpoilerOpening: The preview images for both ''Origins'' and ''Vengeance'' reveal several key plot elements. ''Origins''' reveals that [[spoiler:Knuckles will become zombified and Sonic will have to power up using Rouge's boobs]], while ''Vengeance'' spoils [[spoiler:Sonic becoming a "Hornhog" and the return of both Knuckles and Silver after they were killed off in prior episodes]].
** Sonic even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the spoiler-tier thumbnails in both ''Origins'' and ''Vengeance''.
* SwallowedWhole: In ''Vengeance'', [[spoiler:Monster Silver kills Shadow this way, however Silver is later [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaled]] on some poles, meaning Shadow could still be alive and escaped from Silver's dead body offscreen.]]
** The next episode ''Space'' conforms that [[spoiler:Shadow did indeed die inside Silver's body, since according to Blaze, Shadow's life readings have dropped to zero, resulting in the team picking up a clone of Shadow during their visit on Blaze's Starship]].
* TakeThatAudience: Near the end of ''Vengeance'', Sonic makes a quick stab at viewers who take the series seriously and don't see it as a StylisticSuck series. Another such stunt would appear in ''Space''.
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:Knuckles. While watching over Cream's dead body, he doesn't realize that eventually her corpse would spring back up to bite Knuckles in the arm.]]
** Amy to a certain extent, as revealed by her little "stunt" in ''Space'' [[spoiler: where she unleashes all the clones while trying to get herself a Sonic clone to have sex with.]]
* UnlikelyHero: [[spoiler:In ''Diaries'', it is ultimately Tails that defeats Satan.]]
* VerbalTic: Sonic's "Whooba Dooba Doo" phrases, especially in ''Vengeance''.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: For a series based around zombies, the only scene to contain any form of zombie attack in ''Space'' is the opening attack in the deserted city's sewers. The rest of the episode has the team dealing with [[spoiler:clones]].
* [[spoiler:YourSoulIsMine: a "Just The Soul" variety. Silver successfully drains both Sonic's "Hornhog" powers and Knuckles' recently revealed vampirism during their duel. Sonic and Knuckles are BroughtDownToNormal as a result.]]
