Release: Nov 7, 2017Film: Dragonball EvolutionTagline: LittleKuriboh and Masako X join the fight against the worst anime adaptation of all time, Dragonball Evolution. It kicks you right in the Dragon Nards.
The trio refer to Ernie Hudson (Sifu) as the "underappreciated Ghostbuster" whose temple Goku and co. visit to obtain another Mafuba, which the Critic mocks by dubbing lines into Roshi stating that the previous one failed, while showing a clip from Ghostbusters (1984) showing their firehouse HQ imploding.
Affectionate Parody: The opening sketch pokes fun at the source material (featuring MasakoX as Goku, LittleKuriboh as Vegeta, and the Critic as Krillin, but in a way that's ironically way more faithful than the actual movie. The Critic even lampshades it within the review itself, with a lot of hands raised in agreement when he suggested so.
Age Lift: It's pointed out changing Goku's age in and of itself makes the movie worse.
The Bully: The group make fun of how generic the bullies are. And also point out that said bullies have zero reason to actually bully him.
Makes Just as Much Sense in Context: In the beginning, as the Critic announces that MasakoX and LittleKuriboh are collaborating with him to review this movie, LittleKuriboh admits that "a Japanese anime dubbed by Americans and now reviewed by two Brits" makes as much sense as the movie itself.
Melting-Pot Nomenclature: They mock this movie's Goku having a Japanese name despite being played by a white actor (although being an alien, it doesn't qualify as being a full-on Race Lift) with the only reason being his adopted grandfather being Asian.
Overly Long Gag: In reaction to an overly-long mid-credits stinger which shows that Piccolo survived his defeat to Goku, LittleKuriboh puts his own spin, feigning excitement as said stinger played out, with both the Critic and MasakoX being bored to sleep.
At the opening sketch, Hebert!Narrator describes Critic!Krillin as fighting against one of the worst anime adaptations of all time, while showing a poster of Death Note (2017) before he switches it to Dragonball Evolution.
While trying to comprehend how bad Dragonball Evolution was compared to the source material, the Critic compares it to the film adaptation of Ghost in the Shell (one of Doug's favorite anime), with LittleKuriboh confirming his guess.
When Goku kicks Agudes, one of his bullies, into a fountain, that scene is played in such gratuitous slow-mo the trio imitate him, with the Critic imitating him and exclaiming that he got"Snydered".
There Are No Rules: The trio mocks the film's use of this, which they point out counts as a rule anyway. They parody it by MasakoX suggesting that this means they have no need for the source material while the Critic shoots down DVD boxes of Dragon Ball Z.
This Is Gonna Suck: When the Critic finds himself both confused and bored with the opening narration, MasakoX and LittleKuriboh warn him to get used to that feeling.
Toilet Humor: Several of Goku's facial expressions are so hilarious the trio parody it with a clip compilation dubbed in with farting sounds.
Wangst: In-Universe, the trio parody Goku's insecurities about his uniqueness by summoning "Slumming-It Fairy" (Tamara), who gives them a box full of stock angst lines.
What an Idiot: In-Universe, the trio point out how the gang spent hours in a hole despite Roshi having superhuman jumping powers.
