"In the not too distant future, the sinister scientist Dr. Poque creates a gaming console with the ability to tap into the human mind. He recruits young specimens Rocko and Derek, two extraordinary subjects, to become enslaved within a beta-testing camp. This is their story. This is Mega64."
Mega64 is a low budget (though their budget has increased considerably) Sketch Comedy series created by and starring Rocco Botte, Derrick Acosta, and Shawn Chatfield. The series started out focusing primarily on skits involving one or more people reenacting video games in real life. Many of Mega64's skits can be watched on their YouTube channel. However they have started focusing more on the main story and miscellaneous.The story of Mega64 centers on Dr. Poque, a Mad Scientist who creates the ultimate gaming console, the eponymous Mega64. He kidnaps Rocko Boaty and Derek Ackawzdha and forces them to beta-test the machine. They are soon joined in these tests by Sean Chatfeild, who initially was supposed to deliver e-mails. The cast is rounded out by Horatio, Dr. Poque's Mexican roommate who steals everything, and Marcus, a sexist puppet who works for Poque.Not to be confused withMega Man 64, the N64 version of Mega Man Legends
Ascended Meme: This image◊ which has made the round on the internet appears several times in the series. It hits its peak when it bursts through the door into Dr. Poque's room, and is eventually revealed to have been an original test subject named Frankie.
Back for the Dead: Tr1gg3r S3r1ou5 reappears in Version 3, only to die moments later.
Bad Ass: The Killers are a group of incredibly powerful assassins, rumored to be able to kill groups of people effortlessly. Sean has killed two of them with his bare hands.
Big Damn Heroes:Happens multiple times in Delaware, culminating in The Sombrero Guy.
Big "Shut Up!": Dr. Poque has one in "The Gangs Returned To Class And Became Honor Students."
Brick Joke: Near the beginning of this panel Derrick jokingly tells someone to get a cup of coffee. Near the end he comes back with one.
Also Raiden to a certain extent in the skit supplied to the pre-E3 show: Pretty much every single one of his attempted jobs (children's birthday entertainer, plumber, gourmet chef, professional dog walker, town criar, professional skateboarder, breakdancer, and artist, in that order) since his four year unemployment ended up crashing and burning. They eventually Threw The Dog A Bone to Raiden with a last-chance job of being a cybernetic private military contractor, where it is implied that he successfully got it.
Call Back: There are many instances in Version 3 that call back to events, characters, or even throwaway gags from the previous two seasons.
In the skit supplied for the Konami Pre-E3 show, Cyborg Raiden's first attempt at a job since being unemployed for four years was being an entertainer for children's birthday parties, which went just as well as anyone would expect (when trying to cut the cake, he accidentially destroyed the entire table). At the end of the skit, Jehuty was offered the same job first, only his use of the job was even worse than Raiden's (namely, he terrorized the neighborhood by bombarding it during his "entertainer's duties")
Colliding Criminal Conspiracies: Falz reveals that they have had run-ins with a mysterious group of eight nigh-unstoppable assassins known only as The Killers. As it would turn out, both Lobo Fuerte and Tony were members of The Killers.
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: The entire core cast qualifies, but special mention should go to Sean and Horatio, as seen in the finales to versions one and two.
The Chick: Shawn, usually the one to be offended by their jokes and tries to keep sanity on the podcast.
Gilligan Cut: A'la Family Guy, the skit shown at the Pre-E3 show had Raiden, after being suggested several job opportunities to get out of his four year unemployment, shows him bombing his assigned job in various ways. One was also shown of Jehuty in the ending of the skit, to which Jehuty accepts the job proposal, only for it to cut to him... Well, let's just say that there's a good reason why Jehuty should not be let anywhere near neighborhoods with children celebrating birthday parties.
Loads and Loads of Roles: Rocco plays Rocko and Poque, Derrick plays Derek and Horatio, Shawn plays Sean and Marcus, and Garrett plays Lobo Fuerte, Jessse, Frankie, and Garret, leader of FALZ. Besides those major roles, they all play many incidental characters both in and outside of the main series.
Love Makes You Evil: Every bad thing Marcus has done has been so he can get enough money to buy the girl he loves the Eiffel Tower.
Theme Music Power-Up: The non-instrumental version of "Sequence Erase" plays in the Version 1 finale when Rocko and Derek confront Poque for the first time. Later in Version 3, the portion of the song with lyrics plays when Sean escapes the facility and heads to the Falz headquarters.
Took a Level in Badass: Sean takes one in the Version 1 finale, and another in the Version 3 finale. The Specter is directly responsible for both of them.
Tragic Villain: Dr. Poque becomes this as more about his past is revealed.
True Companions: As time goes on, the core cast of six start to forge very close bonds, despite their situation.
The Verse: Several seemingly unrelated skits are canon in the Mega64 universe, including "The Blacks," "Backyard Messiahz," and "VGA Commercial #1."
You Killed My Father: Tr1gg3r S3r1ou5 tries to avenge his father Brian Specter, who was killed by Dr. Poque. This becomes even more tragic when it's revealed that Poque never killed Brian, but was merely tricked into believing so by FALZ in order to guilt him into joining them.
Wham Episode: The season finales all tend to be these, but special note goes to "Delaware."
Screwed by the Network: Sky (UK) were to air versions one and two (presumably to go alongside Gamezville) but welsh'd on it later saying that the asking cost (not that one was set by the Mega64 Team) was too high.
