Funny: Obscurus Lupa
  • Throughout Obscurus Lupa's review of The Room she uses an "Oh hey" counter to count the number of times the characters say "Oh hey". When several characters greet each other with "Oh hey" in rapid-fire succession, the counter overloads and makes the movie spontaneously combust.

    • And this:
    Cinema Snob!Wiseau: You're TEARING ME APART, LUPA!
    Lupa: What.
    • The Critic's take on the character deserves special mention. It's a mixed bag of childlike idiocy and Steven Wright-esque jokes.
    "[Coconuts] are a type of chocolate."
    "I was flying over New Mexico once. Not in a plane, just flying."
    "Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night because your knee is jerking? I think that's because of the knee elves."

    • "Here, you'll notice that John Barrowman has two acting modes, one being 'shiny teeth' and the other being 'hammy'."
    • "I was just hanging out in my low-cut sexy top, doing marine biology. Won't you come in and ogle me?"
  • Trapping Angry Joe in footage of Gerry if nothing else for Joe's reaction.
  • During her review of Blood Red Moon, a Twilight ripoff, she makes the following quip regarding the protagonist. "Unfortunately for Meagan if Bella has the personality of a paper bag, in comparision she has the personality of the tree it was made from."
    • Also: "He (i.e. Victor) was transformed as a teenager with no social skills! He's doomed to be perpetually mediocre!"
    • "That's not a blood red moon! Touché, movie - you've thrown me in for a loop!"
    • "The special features include, but are not limited to, 'Behind the Sceens'".
    • "If you ever wondered what Twilight would look like if it was shot in Canada and the actors were paid in silly string and broken dreams, look no further than Blood Red Moon!"

    • 'LOL CAT SALUTE'
  • The review of another Z-grade vampire movie movie Vampegeddon is chock full of these:
    Liz: (brings out alcohol) Thanks to my parents, tonight's going to be very memorable.
    Lupa: "You know you're old enough to buy it yourself now, right?"
    • And later...
    Lupa: They are supposed to be in high school? I was joking earlier!
    • She also constantly points out how the actress playing Mona, a rather busty woman, looks like a porn actress.
    Lupa: By the way, I may be wrong but... I'm pretty sure "Sugar Cox" isn't that actress's real name.
    Later, while Mona is taking off her shirt...
    Lupa: You know, it occurs to me that she probably wasn't hired for her acting talent.
    Melissa: I thought we were close this time...
    Lupa: Damn you, Anne Rice! Your fiction has fooled me again!
    • At one point in the movie, the main villain begins to perform some ritual that forces him to strain his body. How does Lupa make this otherwise boring scene hilarious? She plays random fart noises while he's doing it.

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer: "Oh, what charming rubes they are. I know I like guys who are constantly drunk."
    • Anytime she points out how incredibly creepy almost anything Merrick does is. There's even a montage!

    • "Not just any running - slo-mo shirtless running!" [Baywatch music]
  • The training montage during the Lady Dragon 2 review. Especially Jeremiah as "RICHARD NORTON". This is done with a piece of paper with the words RICHARD NORTON written on it and taped to his shirt. The look of utter disinterest on his face tops it off.
  • The cameos in the Birdemic review:
    Oancitizen: That was a good movie, An Inconvenient Truth.
    Nash: [smiling] What a day! The sun is bright and shining, I just won the lottery, and there is nothing bad happening in Florida. All is right with the world. [killed by a kamikaze bird]
    Todd: I'll save you, Lupa!
    • After the cameos, Lupa tells the viewers that they dramatized some "real" consequences of global warming.
  • From her joint review of The Asylum's Sherlock Holmes with the Cinema Snob:
    Cinema Snob: Uhhh, this is gonna be one of those kinda movies, isn't it.
    Lupa: *Grins wildly at him*
    • "Sherlock himself is played by Ben Syder, an actor's man, an everyman, a man you should recognize from his stunning role on nothing, nothing at all, because he has had no other roles."
    • From the same, when Holmes and Watson face the gas trap.
    Lupa:"..and then Holmes and Watson are attacked by a giant fart."

    Lupa: *giggles* "Yes."

    • "Next thing you'll tell me he throws a dragon at them-" *Shows dragon* "OH COME ON!"
    • "I'd never thought i'd ever say this but the climax of the film involves Holmes in a hot air ballon fighting Iron Man in a giant robot dragon while Watson rides on horseback to stop an android from blowing up Buckingham Palace. I can't even make a joke about that!"
    • "How exactly do you plan to frame him for your giant robot dragon?"

    • When Jesse Eisenberg begins climbing the walls (just like a real werewolf):
      • "Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can..."
      • Made even funnier by the fact that Eisenberg's costar from The Social Network - Andrew Garfield - Is Reboot!Spiderman.
    • "Are you okay?"
  • From the Gooby review:
    Iron Liz: I know what this is. This is the last known footage of the kid, isn't it?
    Lupa: Aw, snap! This is going into Slender Man territory!
    • Iron Liz comparing Gooby to Pedobear.
    • Lupa and Liz passing the curse to... someone else.

  • From American Ninja 3:
    • "Okay. It's an American Ninja movie, so there are going to be montages. But that doesn't mean they have to be good ones." Cue fight scenes set to "Kiss the Girl", "Toxic", "Blue on Blue" by Bobby Vinton, Backstreet Boys, "How I Beat Shaq" by Aaron Carter, and finally, long fart noises.

  • American Ninja 5: Lupa's unstoppable hatred for Hiro.
    Lupa: "I will murder this child!"
  • While Lupa's livestream isn't as well-known as Lord Kat's or Jew Wario's, it has still given us a number of comedic gems:
    • Lupa's "impressions" of her TGWTG coworkers, all of which consist of her saying, "Hi, I'm [insert name], and I [insert job]!" in the same high-pitched voice.
      • She once demonstrated her "Spoony voice" for the man himself on LordKat's livestream chat:
      Lupa: [high-pitched voice] Hiiiiii, I'm Spoony, and I play video games! Mah spoon is too big!
      Spoony: [cough] Wow, Lupa. It's uncanny.
    • On one occasion, Lupa's cat was sitting next to her computer, listening intently to the chat. The cat began meowing loudly...prompting another Skyper's feline to do the same. So, Lupa held the microphone up to her cat and let the two animals "talk".
    Person in chat: I'm awake at 4 AM listening to cats meowing on a Livestream. Yup, my life is headed in the right direction.
  • Her cameo in dascottjr's literal video for Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box".
    Blonde Girl: I put a tree baby in this guy's IV! Ha ha ha! Isn't that funny?
    Kurt, Dave, Krist: No.
  • The Nostalgia Chick and Lupa reviewing Honor and Glory. After Lupa decides she needs someone classier to share the film with, we see the Chick lying in bed wearing a stylish evening gown, drinking wine and reading a book...and then the pillow behind her slowly lifts up to reveal Lupa with the goofiest grin you have ever seen her wearing.
    • Lupa's hilariously creepy Slasher Smile when the Chick demands to know how she got into her apartment.
    Chick: Have you been there all night...and day? It's like five p.m. (And Lupa just keeps smiling at her).
    • Chick attempts to analyze the deeper elements of the movie. Lupa just farts at her.
      • The commentary reveals that, despite playing the serious, deeper character who can't just let go and have fun, it was Lindsay who made all the fart gags.
    • Nella's reaction to a Cynthia Rothrock movie.
    Nella: I'm going to go make celebratory cookies!
    • Which later turn out to be cheetos.
    • Chick, Lupa, Nella, and Elisa reenacting a scene from the movie with intentional Bad Bad Acting, bad lip-syncing, and bad camera movements. At one point someone farts, and Chick almost breaks character trying not to laugh.
    • During the fight, Obscurus Lupa takes Nella hostage... only to clearly feel guilty about it and have a friendly chat with Nella, to the Chick's irritation.
      • Chick also doing the Home Alone face when Nella gets grabbed.
    • The characters in the movie have a green bean fight. Thus we cut to the Chick fantasizing about her and Todd doing the same, but with cheetos.
    • Todd suddenly appearing, as he is wont to do when Lupa is around, and descends into Gibberish of Love. When Lupa lays into him for persisting, the Chick cracks her knuckles and a fights Lupa in defense of "her man". While they're both wearing Twilight shirts
      • Said Cat Fight is a Call Back to Undefeatable. Including the opening, with the Chick licking a knife.

    • Todd decides to ignore the two women fighting over him to take up Nella's offer of cookies.
    • Lupa and the Chick's inner thoughts:
    Chick: One day, you whore, I will avenge the dignity of my love. One day...
    • Paw Dugan / Elisa saying "CAMEO!" in The Stinger.
    • From the bloopers: Lindsay has her arms wrapped around Todd's head so that nobody can see his face, and sings "I am the mask you wear".
    • From the commentary: Lindsay saying that the first thing anyone tells her when they meet in real life is how short she is.
    • The fact that everyone seemed to be hiding in Chick's bedroom without her knowledge. Meaning that she was unaware that Lupa, Nella, Todd, Paw, and possibly Elisa were all in the room with her without her noticing.
  • Using the Jeopardy Theme to illustrate how long it takes Leatherface to kill someone in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation.
    • "Dialogue hurts!"

  • From Fright Night Part 2: "Charlie uses bookcase, but it's super ineffective!"

    Lupa: Ah yes, the first reaction you have is to chase her down like you're going murder her.
    *Later on*
    Director(?): [...] For example, in your first scene you'll be gang-raped by four monsters.
    Lupa: *Impersonating him* -Yes, and all of them are played by Donny. Funny, he really wanted that part.
  • From The Howling V, her summarizing a seven minutes of the film:
    *Overlapping* "Pip-pip, cheerio, we're in a castle, I'm mildly interested in things, Oh I say!"
  • In The Howling VI review: *Pointing out a boom mic* OH HAI
  • Allison's Halloween Candy Spooktacular:
    • Her cat, who was previously "killed" by a werewolf, jumping on things in the background. "Suddenly, alive again! Aaah, continuity!"
      • And then it starts meowing. "I know he's excited! You want some candy? Yeah? Mm, candy's good for cats, I heard."
    • Total jaded, bored reaction to the noisy candy dispensers that go off every time there's movement. Which don't turn off. She bought them a twenty-minute drive away. "Twenty minutes."
    • Mixing together all of the novelty Kool-Aide things into "sewer green".
    • Complaining that the booger candies do not taste like real boogers.
  • In the end of The Howling VII review, her reaction upon learning that there is one more sequel left to review

  • The Blooper Reel for Lupa and Oancitizen's "Hamlet the Vampire Slayer" reveals that Lupa is a CMOF incarnate in real life, as Kyle has serious trouble keeping a straight face. He's Corpsing nonstop, and a couple times she points out that he was in film school, yeah right.
    Kyle (trying to contain the laughter): Just... just let me hear the line.
    Lupa: It's funny because its poop!
    Kyle: Again.
    Lupa: It's funny because its poop!
    Kyle: Again.

    • Pretty much anything she says as Radu is gold, especially "boobs".
      • And DAMMEET!
      • Her portrayal of Radu as an awkward Man Child who just wants to get laid is hilarious.
    • "I think [this scene] pretty much sums up this series. There's Mummy Radu laughing her ass off at things that aren't even remotely funny, Michelle screaming and crying, and Radu standing there with the most ridiculous face he could think up at the time."
    • Her reaction to complaints about the "titty bars": Censor bars EVERYWHERE!
    • The Flying Radu!
  • The Top Ten Hottest Animated Dogs. Let that sink in.
  • In much the same satirical vein as the above, her review of Star Wars: A New Hope, a film so terrible that it "fell into rightful obscurity". Though she does praise its few good points, like the budding romance between Luke and Leia, and how Greedo shoots first.
  • Lupa has brought back Radu to review other movies. And it is hilarious.
  • Her ecstatic reaction to the frog band from Return to Frogtown
  • Heidi 4 Paws, which includes her reinterpreting the Grandfather as plotting Heidi's demise. And racism against pomeranians.
    • "Anyway, this is Peter the goat-herder who is in charge of the- *sees the 'goats'* dear God no."
    • Good God, so many in the Heidi 4 Paws review. The "Biscuit? Biscuit?" montage. The Pomeranians plotting the murders of their caretakers, especially Heidi after she calls one of them fat. "I poisoned your cheese." "Someday you'll pay ... you'll all pay." Not to mention the Psycho violin sting playing while the goat Pomeranians pop up in the background. During night scenes, they cry, "Life is an abyss! We own the night!" and withdraw, hissing.
  • In her Little Mermaid II review, pointing out an animation mistake in which a fleeing merman is grinning happily while fleeing the villain. "Look at this guy. Not a fuckin' care in the world."
    • "Shut up, Sebeastian!"
    • The long, awkward pause after Lupa fires Dr. Crest is just fantastic.
  • In Lupa's review of The Amazing Bulk, her description of what the Bulk looks like.
    Lupa: It's like if the Hulk turned his strechy pants into a gimp suit that gave him a wedgie, that'd be the Bulk.
    • "Look at this fucker run."
    • To parody the film's rampant green-screening, she puts an off-kilter photo of her room up as her background. When the film's backgrounds get even more poorly drawn, the room is replaced with an MS Paint drawing... which is still somehow better than the film's "sets".
    • "Sex jokes. Sex jokes. We're telling sex jokes. We're telling sex jokes, and the background moves too fast..."
    • Her reaction to the glorious Mind Screw near the ending. "I...I asked all of the questions. There are no more questions to be asked."
  • From No Retreat No Surrender:
    "After Ghost Lee beats him up a bit, Jason fights the urge to retreat and surrender, and instead has an eighties training sequence. This involves him doing push-ups at a child’s playground, getting hit in the nuts, wearing short shorts, and this." *A grinning RJ sneaks up and sits on Jason's lap, (who is doing some sort of suspended pelvic-thrust…thing), causing them to both crash to the ground*

  • Lupa's intro to Vampire Assassin: "Today we're talking about vampires. *shows a clip from The Lost Boys, then laughs* Not good vampires, these vampires!" *Shows the bad-wig vampires, and Slovak*
  • "Vampire Cop is about a cop who is a vampire, and there's lots and lots of boobs."
    • "Only one of those things is important, and it's neither of the words in the title."
    • Her reaction to one of the hookers in the movie saying they accept credit cards.
    "They better give him a receipt for that! That shit's tax deductable!"
    • "Well, that just plaidens my chair!"
    • On the excessive amounts of boobage in the movie: "If you want to be a porn, movie, just be a porn! There's no audience for this! ...Except me, apparently."
  • From The Mystical Adventures of Billy Owens, her reaction to Roddy Piper's exceptional moment of Chewing the Scenery. "YOUR SOUL! WAS LOST! IN DA RIVAAAAAH!!!!"
    • "TOO MANY ELEVENS!!!" *SMASH*
    • In the sequel, the lead character jumps from his magical treehouse and starts flying very awkwardly. Cue the Puma Man theme.
  • In Lupa's Let's Play of Xena: Death In Chains, there's her reaction to the Disco ball option. Then, after accidentally repeatedly killing the protagonists, she intentionally picks what she thinks is a silly option (a stick)... Which turns out to be the correct option!
    • She doesn't let Gabrielle live down her "dreamboat" comment, and sprinkles it on her dialogue whenever she can. It's amazing.
  • Saying "tell her you want to go home and eat her pussy" completely deadpan in the Samurai Cop review.
  • Lupa gets A Special Sesame Street Christmas as another present from "fuck face".
    • In the introduction to the review, she says that the special must be more revered than Christmas Eve on Sesame Street, since it got an Emmy nomination, but then learns it lost the award...to Christmas Eve on Sesame Street.
    • Sometimes, she makes Tiny Tim the cat talk with a screechy, whiny voice.
    • After Ethel Merman tells Imogene Coca, "You look like an idiot!", Lupa grins and says that she can't hate Merman for saying that.
    • Lupa declares Michael Jackson's placement on the DVD cover "false advertising" after learning that his two guest spots each run less than one minute, and says that the bonus techno remix of his dialogue doesn't make up for it.
    • As Lupa is about to open said present of "fuck face," the jingles from Die Hard play in the background.
  • From the Alpha's Magical Christmas crossover with Linkara:
    • "Aaaargh! Alpha and Zordon kidnapped children!"
    • This exchange with Linkara:
    Lupa: Yeah and he sucks!
    Linkara: He does not suck!
    Lupa: Does too!
    Linkara: Does not!
    Lupa: DOES TOO!
    Linkara: DOES NOT!!
    Lupa:You win this time, Linkara Brown.
  • From the Witchcraft 5 review:
    MikeJ: (holding his mug of tea) Hello, I'm a British person.
    Lupa: (holds up two boxes of canned soda) And I'm an American!
  • Her Tumblr account is, most of the time, built on Rule of Funny, but this particular response to a question is one of the funniest thing's she put on there.
    • Another gem is her response to a goofy picture of her used in a post by TGWTG Secrets.
  • From "Allison Reads Her Barbie Fanfic":
    • Lupa lampshades how such characters as Brock, Ariel, and Bubbles have names blatantly copied from cartoons she often watched back then.
    • For the villainess, Lupa pulled out a Barbie with ugly eyeshadow and named it, "Evella".
    • The first chapter distills the failures of Evella's past crimes into a few words each.
  • Her Running Gags in her Charmed Manic Episodes:
    • "The Elders are dicks."
    • "If it sounds like a good idea, Charmed will find a way to make it stupid."
    • Her love/hate for Neighbour Dan
    • Her intense hatred for Piper and especially Phoebe
    • Pointing out how awful the Charmed Ones progressively become at saving innocents
    • She loves pointing out how death has no meaning on the show since the main characters die very often and always come back. (Well except for that one time with Prue but that was a case of Real Life Writes the Plot)
    • How often the Charmed Ones abuse Leo
    • Pointing out all of the What The Hell, Costuming Department? moments in the show. There are a lot honestly.
    • Showing the multiple Special Effect Failures
    • Every season she is able to make a huge list of Whitelighter continuity errors, she even points out in the sixth season episode that's she's shocked that she can do this each episode.
    • Her shrill voices and unflattering screenshots when speaking as Piper or Phoebe.
    • Pointing out how often the Charmed Ones use magic for personal gain accompanied by a triumphant "Makes it easy!!"
  • Other Charmed jokes:
    • The description of the Bizarro World Rick Astley. "Always gonna give you up. Always gonna let you down. Always gonna run around and desert you."
    • Her name for Charmed fans since Charmeders didn't sound right? Charmanders!
    • The sound she makes when Wyatt refers to Coop as "Uncle Coop."
    • Superimposing the sobbing Kaley Cuoco's head over the "Sucks to Be You" video might be the most darkly hysterical thing she's ever done.
    • "Because there were two blue moon's that year, the girls have become PMS Werewolves. PMS Werewolves. PMS Werewolves!!"
    • Piper kept neighbor Dan's, and his niece Jenny's severed heads, and she later adds an electrician that pissed her off.
  • In her Witchcraft 666 review: "You got two guesses as to what's on screen next: boobs, or delicious chocolate cake." The answer:boobs censored by delicious chocolate cake.
  • In her Witchcraft 7 review, about the drastic changes in casting of characters:
    I'm just saying, don't be surprised if, next review, I'm a Mexican dude.
    *Smash Cut to The Film Renegado wearing a very obvious red wig*
    Hello, I'm Obscurus Lupa, and welcome to the review of Witchcraft 8. Ai yiyiyiyi! *shakes maracas, screen flashes the colors of the Mexican flag*
  • During a Livestream, Lupa streamed Cop Rock. A typo in the chat turned the Mayor into MAMYOR, a Memetic Badass that shoots first, asks questions later, fights Godzilla, questions why everyone has flat tops, lets Hoby sleep in her hair, and is also probably an alien from the same planet as Tommy Wiseau.
  • In the Witchcraft 9 review (done with Phelous), because the main character has become a ghost, the two reviewers become Ghostbusters. Cue Lupa in a Ghostbusters uniform... and Phelous dressed as the animated Janine. They switch in the next scene (and Lupa's Janine cosplay is excellent), but damn was that brilliant.
    • The "Hooker Math" and "Hooker Magic" employed by the deuteragonist.
    • When the Hooker with a Heart of Gold trope is referenced, a picture of Brad Jones accompanies it.
    • Censoring a sex scene with the following: Guy Fieri, The Critic, Linkara, Lupa's cat Ash ("...Why was my cat in there?"), and the sun.
    • When the protagonist finds it impossible to touch anyone because he's a ghost, "Can't Touch This" is played over a montage of the Running Gag.
  • The opening to her ''Baywatching'' series contains the credit "Created By An Idiot."
  • From A Talking Cat!?!:
    • The title card, based on the bad, obscure 1989 NES game A Week of Garfield.
    • Lupa sneaking up on The Nostalgia Critic who is casually eating a burrito, pushing a VCR up next to him, then sticking the film's DVD in the VCR slot.
    • Both of them reading the title in various inflections.
    • Lupa calls the director "David De-Can't-Pronounce-His-Name."
    • "Did The Cinema Snob voice the kitty, or did his cat Lloyd just want to give his son a liftoff project?"
    • Their With Lyrics rendition of the opening segment's jaunty music.
  • Most of the Miami Connection review is stupidly funny, but especially her ridiculous glee at the band-within-a-movie, Dragonsound. By the time they come back on screen a third time, Lupa looks like she just achieved enlightenment.
    • Also, this is just one of her many, many ribs on the poorly-delivered dialogue throughout the movie:
