Video Game: Razes Hell
An shooter style game for the original Xbox that suffered from poor sales due to its odd concept and high difficulty. The game stars Raze, a strange alien whose home is invaded by the Kewletts; vile, pink teddy bear-like genocidal maniacs who seek to cutify the world by destroying all the ugly. Cutify in this case of course means disposing, destroying, or otherwise removing anything that can't be held up to their high standards. Raze returned to his village to find it under attack from the Kewletts and flees for his life. He stumbles upon a convenient ancient relic in a nearby cave. The relic was guarded by Slivh, who tells Raze that his newfound powers will allow him to take revenge. Being fairly pissed off that his whole village was wiped out by these horrible things, Raze goes on a massive murdering spree, hunting the Kewletts down one by one. As the name would imply, this is NOT a game for children. Murder, blood, gore, foul language, and rainbows saturate every square inch of this strange title... and most masochistic players will love every minute of it.

Tropes that apply to Razes Hell:
  • Abnormal Ammo: Raze spits out bugs at his enemies.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Raze's melee weapon.
  • Badass Adorable: The Kewletts are surprisingly lethal for small pink teddy bear people.
    • Badass Army: To give the little buggers credit, the Kewlett Army is quite good at "saving" people.
  • Big Bad: The Princess of the Kewletts, who would have you believe she's the Big Good. She's the one who caused the Kewletts to start their campaign of genocide.
  • Blatant Lies: The Princess in her opening speech:
    "I have decided that it is our solemn duty, to bring our infinite bounty to those less fortunate than us. Let us go forth then and spread our message; to the ignorant, to the primitive, to the... ugly. Fear not, you will be saved!
  • Crap Saccharine World: By the time Raze makes it to the Kewlett's home, you'll know the that the fluffy little bastards are fighting for this. They are not morally superior nor trying to prevent some kind of catastrophe. All they are attempting to do is expand their empire while killing a species they condemned to death.
  • Cute Is Evil: Not just evil, but downright genocidal.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Raze is a somewhat ugly-looking creature with somewhat evil-looking armor who kills his enemies in horribly gruesome ways, but he is definitely the good guy in all this.
    • His entire species and home is this trope entirely. They were just surviving on their part of the globe, then the Kewletts came out of nowhere.
  • Deconstruction: Raze's Hell approaches the idea of Beauty Equals Goodness and shows the logical conclusion of the mentality.
  • Doomed Home Town: The game begins with the destruction of Raze's village.
  • Exposition Fairy: Silvh, who guides Raze in his crusade against the Kewletts.
  • Fantastic Racism: The Kewletts decided that anything that isn't like them (brightly colored, adorable, etc.) needs to die screaming. No diplomacy, no integration efforts, no warning.
  • Gorn: Raze actually gets health back from devouring the remains of his slain foes.
  • Hypocritical Humor: The Kewletts have a bit of this.
    Dying Kewlett soldier: "Robbed of the precious gift of life..."
  • Nintendo Hard: Normal difficulty becomes hard fairly quickly and even easy will provide a challenge on later stages. This is likely one of the reasons the game didn't do too well.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Basically the whole game is Raze taking revenge for his village being wiped out by, you guessed it, rampaging through the Kewlett army and killing any he finds.
  • Silent Protagonist: Aside from roars of rage, Raze doesn't speak much.
  • Sugar Apocalypse: One that you get to create!
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: Do we really need to say it?
  • X Meets Y: Some people have likened it to Conkers Bad Fur Day meets Happy Tree Friends. Sounds about right.
