[[caption-width-right:350:"Oh c'mon, one more sacrifice before we go?" "Okay, but this is ''The Final Sacrifice''!"]]

->“''You know what? You lose me straight away when your movie’s protagonist is named ‘Zap Rowsdower’. The second I hear him identified as ‘Zap Rowsdower’ I am squeezing past you and climbing over your legs and muttering “excuse me” and I am getting the hell out of the movie. Only this time I couldn’t because I was at work and I’m hourly and I had used up all my vacation and sick time. How about Plink Holmgren? Or Pow Flowhauer?''"
-->--Mary Jo Pehl, '''The Amazing Colossal [=MST3K=] Guide'''

Film watched: ''Film/TheFinalSacrifice''

!!The Segments:
* While Gypsy work on the SOL's power, Crow and Servo take the blackout as a time to loot. Their spoils are underwhelming though.

[[AC:Segment 1]]
* Pearl starts her campaign of world domination by going at it one person at a time, but runs into a few roadblocks along the way-- the first person she asks to rule over has impenetrable defenses (he tells her "no") while the second person she asks is Servo.

[[AC:Segment 2]]
* Mountie Servo sings a tribute to Canada as response to the Canada-bashing, which Crow and Mike ruin with their own improvised lyrics. They encourage Servo to lighten up and join in the bashing, but he takes it entirely too far and ends up having a breakdown over being a "disgrace to my uniform".

[[AC:Segment 3]]
* Castle Forrester and the SOL are infected with hockey hair, leaving Bobo bedridden, the Bots annoyed, and Mike unaffected since he'd already had a case of hockey hair in his youth. Brain Guy, meanwhile, finds his new hairstyle an improvement.

[[AC:Segment 4]]
* The Bots decide to let the hockey hair as it is, only to find Mike inflicted with Grizzled Old Prospector syndrome. He gets better after Commercial Sign.

[[AC:Segment 5]]
* Crow and Servo start up their own cult and invite Mike for baking and watching TV dramas, to his horror. Pearl is successful getting a new approach in personal domination, only to be usurped by Travelers, Inc.

!!The ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' presentation has examples of:
* ATeamFiring:
-->'''Mike (as Rowsdower):''' D'oh, I shot in between them. I got confused!
* TheAlcoholic: Referenced:
-->'''Crow''': "Hm, I wonder if there's beer on the sun."
-->'''Mike''': "[[CatapultNightmare I FORGOT THE LIQUOR STORES CLOSE AT EIGHT!]]"
* AndTheAdventureContinues: ''Zap & Troy: The Legendary Journeys''.
* BerserkButton: When the Mads find out they gave a guy a whole feast for no reason, Bobo gets pissed.
-->'''Bobo''': (grabbing the guy's mouth) GIVE ME BACK MY FOOD!
* BrainBleach: Crow has this reaction during his pitch of ''Zap & Troy: The Legendary Journeys'' when Mike the TV Executive suggests that Rowsdower go full-frontal a couple times a season.
* BriefAccentImitation: During the opening credits, Tom briefly takes on a Canadian accent:
--> '''Servo''': Hey, Ron Anderson here, just gotta nip down and make that movie real good then.
* BrokenAesop: After Mike and Crow interrupt Tom's increasingly frightening "Canada Song".
--> '''Mike:''' Mustn't hate, mustn't hate...\\
'''Crow:''' At least not so ''overtly''.\\
'''Mike:''' Exactly. Must ''disguise'' our hate, just a little.
* BrokenRecord: Crow comments on the soundtrack to the film:
--> '''Crow''': Man, "Beethoven's 5th" just can't get started here.
* {{Callback}}
-->"He's gonna turn into a [[Film/{{Werewolf}} warwilf!]]"
* CanadaEh: The movie itself was set in Canada, but doesn't use any of the stereotypes. The [=MST3K=] episode makes numerous jokes that fit this trope exactly, however, culminating in a song about Canada that is nothing but mocking the country using every stereotype imaginable...eh?
* CatchPhrase: "Rowsdower!"
* CelebrityResemblance: Many of the riffs remark on that [[http://oi60.tinypic.com/mmr69e.jpg Troy's father]] looks like NFL player [[http://oi58.tinypic.com/wasqoo.jpg Larry Csonka]]. Also, Rowsdower does look a bit like Randy Bachman of Bachman-Turner Overdrive.
** Aunt Betty looks like either [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} Mrs. Costanza]] or [[Series/TheMunsters Al "Grandpa" Lewis]] while [[http://oi60.tinypic.com/35d15iu.jpg Satoris in the prologue]] looked like [[Music/TheKinks Ray]] [[http://oi59.tinypic.com/mskci9.jpg Davies.]]
** Not only does Pipper sound like [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Yosemite Sam]] or Music/TomWaits, he's also resembles the Ethiopian [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haile_Selassie Emperor Haile Selassie]] & [[Series/TheRedGreenShow Red Green.]]
--> "Oooooh, I hates that rabbit!"
* {{Corpsing}}: Mike and the bots can barely keep their composure when Mike Pipper and his ridiculous accent first appear in the film around the one hour mark.
* CreditsGag: A rather lengthy one as Crow attempts to discuss pitching the movie as a [[RecycledTheSeries television series]] and Mike gets deep in character and actually acts like a real live executive...complete with [[ExecutiveMeddling meddling]].
* CurseCutShort: Servo's Canada song ends with the line "Your country's just a giant piece of--", but both Mike and Crow stop him before he can finish.
* CurseOfTheAncients: After Mike catches "Grizzled Old Prospector Syndrome."
* DynamicEntry: When Rowsdower bursts into the room in one scene:
--> "[[Series/{{Seinfeld}} Kramer]]-dower!"
* EightiesHair: Turns out "Hockey Hair" is caused by an airborne virus. Who knew?
* ExactlyWhatIAimedAt: When Rowsdower ends up threatening Troy with a club:
-->'''Crow:''' (as Troy) "Wait, it's me!"
-->'''Servo:''' (as Rowsdower) "I ''know''!"
* ExecutiveMeddling: [[invoked]] Parodied in Crow's pitch for ''Zap And Troy: The Legendary Journeys''.
-->'''Crow''': But the main character--
-->'''Mike:''' Has a friend-- a girl! Hell, ''he's'' a girl too. There's a bunch of girls. There's an ugly girl, a serious girl, a loose girl-- everyone in the damn series is a damn ''girl!''
-->'''Crow:''' But Rowsdower...?
-->'''Mike:''' A big hairy girl!
* FateWorseThanDeath:
-->'''Crow''': We're going to make you drink something other than beer!
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In this case, [[BilingualBonus linguistically literal.]]
-->'''Servo (as masked goon):''' ''"Aw merde! Mon pied!" ('Oh, shit! My foot!')'' (made funnier by the fact that Servo says it in a flat, American accent rather than the usual faux Frenchiness).
** a subtle one:
--> Crow: So Mike, are they in a heavily forested area?
-->Mike: Yeah.
-->Crow: Would you call these the "Deep Woods"?
-->Mike: Uh...yeah?
-->Crow: Because when you're in the Deep Woods, you can't BEAT the reliable, reasonably priced mosquito repellent OFF!
* HeroicBSOD: Mike suffers this when he learns Crow and Servo have entered a Muffin-y, Calista Flockhart, Swoosie Kurtz kind of cult, instead of the usual animal sacrifice sort.
** He happily snaps out of it when the bots state that they'll "...strip to the waist, [[ReligionOfEvil worship an evil emanation]] and [[OffWithHisHead lop people's heads off]] [[ForTheEvulz for fun...]]"
* HilariousInHindsight:[[invoked]] Servo's "Canada" song predates "[[WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut Blame Canada]]".
* HollywoodHeartAttack: Mike and the bots interpret Rowsdower's heavy breathing after a chase sequence to be this.
--> "Hold on, I'm having a series of elaborate heart attacks."
* HoYay: InUniverse, between Troy and Rowsdower.
-->'''Rowsdower''': ''[to his car]'' "Come on baby, don't let me down!"\\
'''Servo (as Troy)''': "I won't, Rowsdower!"
-->'''Crow (as Troy)''': [[Movie/ThePrincessBride My Rowsdower's come for me!]]
** During the skit where Mike gets Grizzled Old Prospector Syndrome, Tom asks Mike if he's been kissing any prospectors. After pondering briefly, Mike denies it, though he apparently did kiss a surly truck farmer (in a ContinuityNod all the way back to Joel's day and the short in Episode 507).
* ImAHumanitarian
-->'''Troy''': Did you know him (Troy's father)?\\
'''Tom (as Mike Pipper)''': Know him? He was ''delicious!''
** Later, Mike (as Pipper) states that he "jerked" Troy's father (as in dried meat). It's hard not to imagine the ''alternate'' use of that verb.
--->'''Mike''': You know, if you hit a Rowsdower you get to keep it.\\
'''Crow''': The meat's a bit gamey, but it's good for sausage.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Mike gets cut off preemptively when he tries to make one about people "just ''dying'' to get into" a cemetery. Note, though, that Mike did the same joke in season 5's ''The Atomic Brain'', and was able to finish the joke.
** See also the "Pipper" joke under StealthPun, which Servo also cuts off.
* InherentlyFunnyWord: "Rowsdower!"
* InkblotTest: When Troy is rummaging through drawings:
--> '''Servo''': Hmmm, devil... living room... dining room... kitchen... ''another'' devil.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Taking a cue from Mike & Crow's ribbing of Canada during his song of tribute, Servo tries his hand at poking fun and immediately starts calling for Canada's fiery destruction instead.
--> '''Servo:''' ''*crying*'' I have no sense of proportion, I'm a disgrace to my uniform!
* LightBulbJoke:
-->'''Crow''': Hey Mike, how many geeks does it take to screw in a lightbulb?\\
'''Mike''': How many?\\
'''Crow''': ...[[StealthInsult I don't know; that's why I'm asking.]]
* MemeticBadass[=/=]MemeticLoser: In-universe; Mike and the bots mix open disdain for Rowsdower with turning him into a great warrior.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Tom and Crow are ''really'' bad looters (then again there isn't much to steal on a satellite where a guy a couple of robots live).
* {{Mondegreen}}
--> '''Troy''': The map is real!
--> '''Mike''': Map Israel? I believe Israel's been fairly well-mapped...
* NoodleIncident: How Mike got Grizzled Prospector Syndrome.
** It involved kissing a surly Truck Farmer.[[note]]MIKE: "Durned fine kisser...."[[/note]]
** Pearl once beat the tar out of a man who tried to steal her purse at a theater in Branson, Missouri.
* RunningGag: Rowsdower!
** The various geeky extracurricular hobbies attributed to the kid.
--->"''And so it is with a heavy heart that I must resign from Chess Club...''"\\
"This is just like that time I almost missed the Teens Encounter Christ bus!"\\
"I haven't been this tense since Mock U.N.!"
** [[TimeSkip "Seven years later..."]]
** As mentioned in CelebrityResemblance, they bring up Larry Csonka too many times to count.
** Pipper's similarities to Yosemite Sam
** Satoris' army of [[{{Mook}} goons]] are apparently French-Canadians. Mike & The Bots give them French names and phrases.
--->'''Mike:''' "Zut allors!" "Je suis mort!" "Gilles, no!" "Not Etienne!"
** Rowsdower's alcoholism.
** The goons being compared to either BDSM Gimps or executioners.
** Occasional Canadian accent impersonations.
--->'''Servo: '''"Hey, Ron Anderson here, just gotta nip down and make that movie real good then."
--->'''Mike (As Goon): '''"Uh, you gonna hit the brakes now or what?"
--->'''Crow: '''(After Rowsdower instructs Troy concerning getting the truck out of the mud) And I'd like to thank Creator/DanAykroyd for doing that last line!
* ShotInTheAss: As it's ''very'' unclear where Troy shoots Satoris in the film's climax, Mike and the 'bots assumed he was shot in the butt. Later extended when Satoris catches fire seemingly because of it [[note]] You kind of have to look but it's because Satoris is wielding a torch during the fight, and at one point Rowsdower knocks his arm back and he hits himself in the back with it [[/note]], and the 'bots suggest shooting ''Mike'' in the butt to find out if this is a reliable method for setting humans on fire.
* ShoutOut:
--> '''Mike (as Pipper):''' [[Series/TheRedGreenShow And remember, if the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.]]
** Mike also refers to "Troy and Rowsdower: [[Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys The Legendary Journeys]]" during the end credits.
** They reference Music/TomWaits when Mike Pipper shows up. Servo quips "I'd like to sing something from ''Music/BoneMachine''."
* ShoutOutToShakespeare: "A horse! My six-pack for a horse!"
* SongParody: [[Music/{{Queen}} "We Will, We Will Rowsdower!"]]
* StalkerWithACrush: The hosts imagine Troy as one of these, writing badgering letters to [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Counselor Troi]] and [[Series/TheXFiles Agent Scully]], [[ActorRoleConfusion by those names.]]
* StealthPun
--> '''Mike (upon learning a character's surname):''' Oh! He's a Pipper! (beat) [[{{Jingle}} Wouldn't you like to be a]]--\\
'''Tom:''' NO.
* TheStoic: Parodied:
--> '''Aunt''': Now Troy, we've talked about this before. I don't want you to cry about what is past.\\
'''Mike''': (as aunt) No emotions, we've discussed that.
* StupidCrooks: Crow and Servo go on a looting spree once Gypsy shuts off the Satellite's power. Crow steals his own TV, while Tom breaks into Mike's room to rob him of his recycling.
* TakeOverTheWorld: While this has always been Pearl's goal, here she comes up with another scheme: to take over the world one person at a time! [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain She fails in ruling one person]].
** Except for some geeky guy in the end (played by Paul Chaplin). He stated he belonged to the "Traveler's Group" but the Mads tie him to a chair and put some sort of brainwashing gizmo on his head.
** This is also the goal of Satoris and his evil prehistoric cult of Canadian BDSM Luchadores.
* TakeThat: To Canada. Servo takes his TakeThat too far, though.
--> '''Servo:''' ♪Oh, I wish I was blowing up Prince Edward Island / And going on to bomb Ontario! / The destruction of Canada and all of its culture / Is by far my fav-o-rite scenario!♪\\
'''Mike:''' OK, well that's a little strong....\\
'''Servo:''' No, no, you were right Mike, this is much more fun! ♪Just where the hell does Canada get off sharing a border / With countries far superior to it?♪\\
'''Crow:''' Yikes!\\
'''Servo:''' ♪Why, you lousy, stinking, francophonic, bacon-loving bastards, / Your country's just a giant piece of [[CurseCutShort sh--]]♪
* ThatPoorPlant: Invoked: Servo greets the sight of a withered house plant with a desperate "Water me!"
* ThatWasNotADream: "Wow, I dreamt I was stuck with this chunky backwoods loser named Rowsdow--Aah!"
* {{Thememobile}}: "Rowsdowermobile, awaaaaay!"
* TitleDrop
--> '''Servo''': "Oh, please just ''one'' more sacrifice!"\\
'''Mike''': "Alright, but this is ''The Final Sacrifice''!"
* UnfortunateNames: Referenced in the film.
-->'''Crow''': He comes from a long line of "[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Great Anuses]]"[[note]]Referring to the director, Tjardus ''Greidanus.''[[/note]]
-->'''Crow:''' Oh, yeah? Well, my name's Bilge Stinkwater.
* TheVirus: Bobo eats a bad can of Canadian bacon and causes hockey hair in everyone. Mike turns out to be immune since he already had it... but this makes him vulnerable to Grizzled Old Prospector Syndrome.
* WithLyrics: Mike and the bots add lyrics to the ending theme music for ''The Final Sacrifice''.
--> '''Tom''': Oh baby, Rowsdower saves us and saves all the world.\\
'''Crow''': He comes to save the day in a broken truck.\\
'''Mike''': With a stinky denim jacket on his back.\\
'''Crow''': He couldn't help this movie, which really sucked.\\
'''Mike''': But, at least we didn't have to see him... [[LeastRhymableWord play... hacky-sack]].\\
'''Tom''': (talking) What?\\
'''Mike''': (talking) I'm sorry, I panicked.
* YouLookFamiliar: InUniverse and parodied: Pearl can't quite place who Tom Servo is when Observer summons him to the castle to be "ruled".
->'''Troy''': [[TheStinger "...Rowsdower...?"]]
