* AssPull: Batman [[spoiler:surviving the Earth becoming crushed]] in ''How The Avengers: Age of Ultron Should Have Ended'', and [[spoiler:shrinking]] in ''How Ant-Man Should Have Ended'', with literally no explanation other than, "Because I'm Batman!" Of course, [[LampshadeHanging Superman already has this reaction]], and it's [[RuleOfFunny completely on purpose]].
* BaseBreakingCharacter: Either HISHE'S Batman is CrazyAwesome personified or an obnoxious individual with a stale catchphrase.
* BetterThanCanon:
** Their parody of the ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}''[=/=]''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' crossover is generally considered much better than the later ''Terminator'' films, and especially than ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'', which had a very similar premise.
** The HISHE Review of ''Film/{{Justice League|2017}}'' has a brief sequence, complete with pre-rendering, storyboards about how they believed ''Justice League'' would have turned out based on the {{Foreshadowing}} in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' and many of the comments believe that their take [[spoiler:i.e. a Superman CameBackWrong being used by Steppenwolf and fighting the League before Lois brings him back, was a more interesting film than what actually got made, even if the producers make it clear that they weren't too keen on that direction, since it relied on "Evil!Superman".]]
** There's a crowd that feel that the HISHE's rendition of ''The Last Jedi'' is better than the actual film, especially since Admiral Ackbar plays a greater role in some major plot points [[spoiler:rather than be anticlimactically killed off when the bridge explodes and being replaced by Admiral Holdo, going so far as to perform her iconic Heroic Sacrifice instead and using his memetic line in the process]] and addressing idiot plot moments, notably [[spoiler:Rose and Finn land the ship in the tall grass rather than on the beach so they don't get arrested for illegal parking]]. Lastly, [[spoiler: the final battle has Luke and Rey actually battling and curb-stomping the [=AT-ATs=] by having Luke stopping their blasts and striking them back instead of Luke simply distracting Kylo Ren and the First Order by sending a force projection.]]
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: One of the endings to ''Film/{{Logan}}'' is a musical number showing the titular character joining the rest of the X-Men in the afterlife. Even the end credits acknowledged how odd it was.
* BrokenBase:
** It can easily be found to divide fans due to how their HISHE episodes are done. Several claimed that HISHE ruined their enjoyment of several movies.
** "Because I'm Batman!" is either still absolutely funny after all these years, or it has gone on for too long, and become an annoyance. It's even lampshaded by Superman, who has become increasingly exasperated by the gag, and Batman, who doesn't seem to understand why.
** The episode they did for ''Film/{{Logan}}''. Some consider it a well-done, touching tribute to the film and Creator/HughJackman's career as Wolverine while others felt the whole ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' parody was a BigLippedAlligatorMoment and the episode didn't have enough humor. Then there are those who felt the [[spoiler: Deadpool cameo ]] was either the best part of the video, or a random gag that ruined what was a good tribute to Creator/HughJackman's portrayal as Wolverine.
* CharacterDerailment: PlayedForLaughs when Superman snaps the neck of Adam Warlock/Martha with Batman giving a big fat lampshade of this.
--> '''Superman:''' [[CallBack You just got served! Some justice!]]\\
'''Batman:''' OH MY GOSH! Have we learned nothing?!
* CrossesTheLineTwice:
** Mowgli getting eaten shouldn't be funny. It then gets funny when everyone tells Bagheera that he murdered a child while singing about how wolves eat babies.
** Vanessa in ''Film/Deadpool2016'' getting killed by getting crushed. Darkly funny. Vanessa gets crushed by ''every piece of rubble from the explosion.'' HYSTERICAL.
** The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actually using their weapons to murder Krang is morally questionable. But when Michelangelo suddenly '''whips out a random pistol out of nowhere and unloads all of its bullets''' into Krang, that's when it's hilarious.
* EarWorm:
** "Spider-Man! He's the man with a plan!"
** "I'm just a lonely zombie / I'm just a lonely zombie / In this hallway / Wishing I could eat some brains / Some brains"
** Lapidus' theme.
** Who knew [[Film/TheHungerGames Peeta]] could create one of these?
---> Camo, camo, camouflage! Camo, camo, camouflage! Painting camo, camo, camouflage! Pa-aaa-inting camo-ooo-uflage!
** [[WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie Everything]] Is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOQxxNYSHR0&t=2m29s Batmaaaan]]
** In-Universe, ''Frozen'''s "Let It Go" (or the copyright-safe rewritten version) is this to The Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters. Many years after attending, many heroines are singing it together, and sheepishly stop when Wolverine enters, [[spoiler: only for him to join in as well]].
** ''"If I could save time in bottles of time, then I could save all of the time..."''
** "Watch out! Here comes my arrow!"
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Unsurprisingly, Wonder Woman is already wildly popular due to being the OnlySaneMan and her happiness at getting to attend the Cafe. At least a few fans found themselves just as attracted to her HISHE counterpart as her film counterpart, and then there's her {{Adorkable}} dancing. Some fans are even clamoring for her to join Batman and Superman as a regular.
* EsotericHappyEnding: One of the endings in ''How Captain America: Civil War Should Have Ended'' has the fight with Iron Man against Captain America and Bucky averted, and the ending plays things as though everything is happy and Zemo's plans are thwarted. This completely ignores that the heroes who sided with Captain America are still fugitives just like in the movie.
* FridgeBrilliance: At one point in the "Bat Blood" video, Batman notes that "Band-Aids don't fix [[{{ItMakesSenseInContext}} building holes]]". This may come across to some people as being a bit of a weird thing to say, but this is ''[[{{CrazyPrepared}} Batman]]'' who's saying it. If anyone would know if you could fix major structural damage with Band-Aids, it would be him.
* FridgeHorror: ''How Back to the Future Part II Should Have Started'' provides a rare example ''not'' lampshaded by anyone in-universe. Doc's claim that giving Marty vague hints about life in 2015 could alter it drastically might make one wonder if he should claim responsibility for Princess Diana's failure to become queen of England (negating a prediction of the ''USA Today'' paper Doc that purchased on October 22, 2015). Then again, he doesn't name-drop her when he describes some of the events becoming undone...
* FunnyAneurysmMoment:
** In ''The Amazing Spider-Man'', Batman and Superman laugh at Spidey for his "But those are the best kind" line [[spoiler:regarding breaking the promise he made to Captain Stacy to stay away from Gwen and continue dating her.]] This becomes inherently less funny in the sequel, [[spoiler:when Gwen dies as a consequence of this promise being broken.]]
** The ''Iron Man 3'' video has Superman prepare for ''Man of Steel'' by removing his UnderwearOfPower, then flying out through the Super Café ceiling. The hole he leaves behind, and the others pointing out his lack of an apology for making it, now seem like unintentional foreshadowing of DCEU!Supes' disregard for property damage
** In ''Batman v Superman'', the part of the spoof where Flash comes back and warns Batman about "Rotten Tomatoes everywhere", based on a scene from the film that seemed to foreshadow ''Film/{{Justice League|2017}}'' and that was used to mock ''Batman v Superman''[='s=] negative reception, becomes this when ''Justice League'' came out and got a similarly negative reception and flopped at the box office.
** In their ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' spoof, the scene where [[spoiler: Luke pops up before Kylo can kill Han and skewers him]] becomes somewhat cringeworthy after ''Film/TheLastJedi'' came out, where we learn that [[spoiler: Luke almost did this in ''canon'' because he feared the darkness within Kylo.]]
** In the ''Harry Potter and the Best Picture Summary'' video, Harry, Dumbledore, Snape, and Voldemort complain how ''The Deathly Hallows Part 2'' wasn't nominated for any major awards at the Oscars. When Hermione mentions that they were nominated for Art Direction, Makeup, and Visual Effects, they scoff it off, saying that they could win those with their eyes closed. As it happens, the film didn't win any of those Oscars either.
** In ''Thor'', when Superman and Batman point out Odin's mistakes, Thor quips, "Well at least I ''have'' [[DisappearedDad a father]]. Come ''Thor Ragnarok'' [[spoiler:and Odin has died.]]
** In ''Thor Ragnarok'', Loki tells Batman "Do you think I'm going to get people's hopes up and then ultimately let them down when the time comes?" where Batman answers by saying "Yes." Come ''Infinity War'' [[spoiler: where Loki dies in a failed attempt to kill Thanos.]]
* HarsherInHindsight:
** In ''How Fast & Furious 6 Should Have Ended'', everyone except The Rock and Vin Diesel dies against the tank. Including Paul Walker's character.
** In ''How the Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer Should Have Ended'', Ultron terrifyingly quoting Disney films prompts Black Widow to exclaim "You're ruining my childhood". ''Series/AgentCarter'' revealed the Black Widow program used Disney films to teach the girls english, mixed with subliminal messages.
** In ''How Star Trek Into Darkness Should Have Ended'':
*** The comment on milking Leonard Nimoy for multiple sequels becomes harsher upon his death in February 2015.
*** The same HISHE also features [[spoiler:Han Solo dying]], which becomes harsher after the events of ''Film/TheForceAwakens''.
** The tenth episode of the ''Superhero Café'' predicted the biggest spoiler for ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' that [[spoiler:Han dies]] eight months before to the movie's release.
** Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man being happy that he's going to be in the MCU starts looking kind of sad when you realize that the Spider-Man for the MCU has been recast with Tom Holland.
** In ''A New Hope'', Dodonna angrily calls out Leia for leading the Empire to the Yavin base, which then gets destroyed by the Death Star. Shortly after the release of the Special Edition, Carrie Fisher suffered a massive heart attack and passed away.
** In ''Return of the Jedi'', during the Rebel Briefing scene, one of the rebel soldiers bitterly comments that "all we rebels ever do is die to accomplish things...except for the A-Team (the saga's heroes) over there". Come ''Film/RogueOne'', a story about a group of rebel soldiers who would've been nothing more than side characters in the main films, [[spoiler: who all died in a grueling battle to steal the Death Star's plan, and the only people who survived are the major characters who are guaranteed to make it to other films, aka the 'A-Team' heroes.]] It crosses into HeartwarmingInHindsight as in their own take on ''Rogue One'' [[spoiler:EverybodyLives]].
** In one scenario on the ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'' skit, [[spoiler:Rocket is the only Guardian who is killed. Come ''Infinity War'', he is the only surviving member of the Guardians.]]
** "The Dead Pool" has the Marvel villains, along with [[Franchise/StarWars Palpatine]], [[Film/TheDarkKnight The Joker]], [[Franchise/HarryPotter Voldemort]], and [[Film/ManOfSteel Zod]] bet on who Thanos will kill in ''Infinity War''. Joker bets that Loki will kill Thanos after faking his death, Zod openly admits that he would be pissed if [[BadassAdorable Groot]] dies, and Deadpool dismisses the notion that Marvel would kill off Black Panther, going so far as to call it commercial suicide. Come the movie [[spoiler:Loki, Groot, and T'Challa, alongside many others, end up biting the dust, with Loki dying in a failed attempt to kill Thanos. Of course, for the very reason Deadpool pointed out, almost no one expects T'Challa to ''stay'' dead.]]
* HilariousInHindsight:
** Iron Man trying to justify the murder of Obadiah Stane by reminding Superman and Batman that if you throw a criminal in jail, he'll just swear revenge on you and break out, is a twofer in that this bit of GenreBlindness takes effect in ''Iron Man 2'' when dealing with Whiplash, and the conversation Superman has with Iron Man about [[spoiler: killing your villains]] is even funnier after ''Film/ManOfSteel'' came along.
** [[Creator/AndrewGarfield "I am not a joke!]] [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan I am Spider-Man!"]] And after the announcement that Jessie Eisenberg joined the cast of ''Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'', the response to that is "yeah, well I'm ComicBook/LexLuthor!''.
** Iron Man objected to Superman comparing Siri to JARVIS, but now JARVIS also has an [=iPhone=] app.
** How ''Film/{{Thor}}'' should have ended? At that point when he got his powers back, and he had to return to Asgard to fight against Loki... Thor looks back at his hot girlfriend, and decides to leave all behind to stay with her. Besides the other surprises and differences in context, ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' ends basically that way.
** ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' having Nick Fury quote ''Film/PulpFiction'' is even funnier after ''Captain America: The Winter Soldier'' [[spoiler:showed the Ezekiel 25:17 quote on his [[FakingTheDead "grave"]].]]
** In the "thanks for watching" section", Clark is floating in the sea with the appearance of Cominbook/{{Aquaman}}, whispering, "Justice League..." at the end. It was later confirmed that Aquaman was indeed the one who helped Clark after the oil derrick scene and there will be a ''Film/{{Justice League|2017}}'' movie in which Aquaman will appear.
** The happy ending epilogue for ''How Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2 Should Have Ended'' jokes that Sony made a deal with Disney so Spider-Man could appear in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. A few months later this actually happened.
** ''How Terminator Should End'' suggests it's only a matter of time before machines wisen up and send a Terminator to kill Sarah Connor in her childhood. ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'' did exactly that.
** A parody music video with Batman singing a version Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" called "Bat Blood", before the announcement of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBadBlood''.
** At the end of the "Bat Blood" video, Batman hints that he and Music/TaylorSwift had a thing going, which Superman doesn't buy at all. Swift would later date [[Creator/TomHiddleston an actor]] known for playing a comic book character.
** The ''Winter Soldier'' parody ended with Superman and Batman warning the Marvel heroes about their movies' overuse of the DisneyDeath. Flash forward to ''Batman v Superman'', [[spoiler: which ends with Superman himself "dying" to stop Doomsday.]]
** All of Batman's jabs at Superman for killing in ''Film/ManOfSteel'' comes back to bite him after ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', where Batman was shown to have zero problems with using lethal force to defeat his enemies. The "How ''Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'' Should Have Ended" episode had Deadpool lampshade this and gives Batman an IronicEcho about him killing his enemies after Batman basically stated to Deadpool that killing your enemies is wrong in "How ''Film/Deadpool2016'' Should Have Ended."
** ''How Film/XMenApocalypse Should have Ended'' leads up to Magneto learning that Quicksilver was his son, and gushing about it to everybody, even asking Xavier "Charles, do YOU have a son?!" Xavier replies "[[Series/Legion2017 Not at this time...]]"
** ''How Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron Should Have Ended'' has Spider-Man show up to stop the train, and Magneto arrive to defeat Ultron and his robotic army, before pointing out that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are his children and that they are "mutants". In 2015, Marvel made a deal with Sony for Spider-Man to appear in the MCU, and the rights to the X-Men eventually reverted to Marvel in December 2017.
** ''How Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Should Have Ended'' shows Peter Quill having traded in his Walkman for an iPod prior to meeting Batman and Superman at the Super Cafe. In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'', after said Walkman [[spoiler:gets destroyed by his father]] he replaces it with a Zune, Microsoft's short-lived competitor to the iPod during the last few years of the TurnOfTheMillennium.
** In "The Dead Pool" short:
*** Palpatine predicts that Thanos [[KillEmAll will kill everyone]] except Ant-Man who goes back in time and teams up with Captain Marvel in the Avengers sequel. It turns out that Palps was (somewhat) right [[spoiler:when most of the newer heroes are killed (with only the original Avengers, Rhodey, Rocket, and Nebula being explicitly shown to survive) and TheStinger shows Nick Fury sending out a distress signal to Captain Marvel, who will be appearing in the Avengers sequel.]]
*** Red Skull may not have gotten his wish of Cap dying three times, but at least [[spoiler:he actually appears in the movie long after everyone had given up hope of ever seeing him again.]]
** After the ending of ''Film/{{Deadpool 2}}'', [[spoiler:Deadpool coming back in time to save Logan]] makes a lot more sense.
* HoYay: The Super Café segments involving Superman and Batman. Indeed, in ''The Amazing Spider-Man 2'' parody, [[spoiler:a deranged Spider-Man extorts Superman to turn back time to bring Gwen to life by pointing a gun to Batman's head and threatening to kill him.]]
* MST3KMantra: Though the primary purpose of the series is to point out FridgeLogic, it's not above ignoring certain facts about the parodied series and creating its own Fridge Logic for the sake of a joke.
* PanderingToTheBase: People who don't like particularly divisive movies such as the Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse or ''Film/TheLastJedi'' are very likely to love the show's inputs on them. It looks like it's more about roasting these movies than finding funny alternate endings to them.
* RootingForTheEmpire: Quite a few were rooting for the villains against Batman in the Boss Battle episode for Villain Pub. It helps that Hishe!Batman is an incredibly obnoxious fool most of the time, and the video specifically parodies and makes fun of his "Bat-God" CrazyPrepared reputation. The Emperor getting the best of Batman is even a moment of awesome in its own right.
* {{Sequelitis}}: General opinion of ''[[WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie The LEGO HISHE 2]]'' is that, while still funny in its own right, it isn't nearly as funny or creative as the first ''The LEGO HISHE''.
* SpoiledByTheFormat: "How ''The Jungle Book'' Should Have Ended" credits Jon Bailey as Kaa before Kaa shows up in TheStinger. [[spoiler:Averted for Winnie the Pooh.]]
* {{Squick}}: Grendel's mother in ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf|2007}}'', um, ''bubbles'' from a wrong location.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Any time you hear an iconic theme in this series it won't sound ''exactly'' like the original, because of copyright rules.
* TakeThatScrappy:
** With one for ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', you could bet that ''something'' was going to happen to our "lovable" Jar Jar Binks. In fact, Jar Jar gets it in every HISHE for the prequels.
** After Deadpool gets kicked out of the Villain Pub, he gets back at the patrons by seating [[spoiler:his in name only ''X-Men Origins: Wolverine'' incarnation]] in his place. Everyone promptly runs away in disgust.
** Superman and Batman inviting all the DC heroes to join the Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse suddenly gets really awkward when Green Lantern shows up. [[spoiler: Even Green Lantern admits it was a joke, switching to Deadpool's costume and saying that "[he's] not doing that anymore."]]
** Wonder Woman eventually calls out Batman for using his "Because I'm Batman!" schtick far too many times rather vehemently in her own short. "IT'S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT YOU BRUCE!"
** Holdo is hated by many in ''Film/TheLastJedi'' due to withholding information from the rebels [[IdiotBall for no reason]] other than the plot demanding to teach Poe a lesson. Fans rejoiced when Admiral Ackbar replaced her as the temporary leader and actually tells the rebels of Leia's intentions while simultaneously shoving Holdo aside where she is ignored by the rest of the cast.
** The Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse version of Lex Luthor is a very divisive version of the character. Come to ''How Film/{{Justice League|2017}} Should Have Ended'', Lex Luthor is brought to the Villain Pub, but is immediately kicked out.
* UncannyValley:
** Purposely done to baby Renessmee in ''Breaking Dawn Part 2'', mocking the use of CGI in the actual movies.
** Tobey Maguire in ''How Spider-Man: Homecoming Should Have Ended''. While his face has been given an updated model, his Spider-Man suit hasn't. As such, Maguire looks off compared to Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland.
** Superman in ''How Justice League Should Have Ended'' is given a ''WesternAnimation/ClutchCargo'' SynchroVox-like mouth at the beginning, mocking the poor CGI used to hide his actor's mustache.
* UnexpectedCharacter: When talking about the events of ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'', Creator/TomHolland has a discussion with Creator/AndrewGarfield and Creator/TobeyMaguire, the previous Spider-Men. Holland is completely sure that it was unfortunate for them, but at least ''he'' won't be replaced. And then [[spoiler:ComicBook/MilesMorales]] says "Don't be so sure of that!"[[note]]Miles Morales was introduced in the ComicBook/UltimateMarvel imprint, and became Spider-Man after the death of Peter Parker. His uncle Aaron Davis has appeared in the film, and called him by phone, so his existence in the MCU is confirmed.[[/note]]
