Creator: Saturday Video Entertainment System
The Saturday Video Entertainment System (SVES) was a block of action animation (both Anime and Western) similar to another block currently airing at the time. The block aired on Saturday nights from March 2003 to April 2004. It featured bumpers reminiscent of older arcade games with a Samus Aran-like character in a space fighter craft.

Programs aired during the blocks run included:


The Saturday Video Entertainment System provides examples of specific tropes:

  • Samus Is a Girl: At the end of the block, the pilot would take off her helmet, revealing it to be a female character.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Acted pretty much the same as Toonami (and even DID air many of its same shows), except airing on a Saturday. Wordof God states that the Toonami staff actually developed and worked on SVES.
