is a series of sprite animations poking fun at cliches and Fridge Logic
in classic videogames.
Dorkly Originals contain examples of:
- And Now For Something Completely Different: Sometimes Dorkly would go poke fun at other media outside of video games.
- Affably Evil: The ghost in "Boos Meet a Real Ghost".
- Black Comedy: The series mainly focuses on this type of humor.
- Body Horror: "Inbred Yoshi".
- Calling the Old Man Out: In Luke Won't Forgive Anakin, Luke and Leia called out Anakin for the atrocities that he committed.
- From Bad to Worse: "Ice World Problems", full stop.
- It's a Wonderful Plot: In the video It's A Wonderful Extra Life, Luigi is given a view of what would happen if he never was born. What happens is that Mario goes missing, giving Bowser the chance to take over the Mushroom Kingdom, Daisy settles for Waluigi, and the ghosts of that haunted mansion were free to torment everyone else.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: A frequent occurrence ("Mario Can't Play the Warp Whistle" and "Sonic, Lord of the Rats" being standout examples).
- No Party Like a Donner Party: "Sonic Wasn't Fast Enough".
- Not So Different: In Mario Is Too Mainstream, Tim of Braid calls his own game very original while Mario points out that his and Tim's game are very much alike. And even when Tim mentions other gameplay mechanics that Mario doesn't have, Mario was quick to mention that it's been done before in other series.
- Not the Fall That Kills You: In Double Dragon Dad, Billy and Jimmy jump off the roof of a building similar to the games. While Jimmy was unscathed, one of Billy's legs was broken from the fall and the bone was sticking out.
- Roaring Rampage of Rescue: Assumably, Mario goes to extreme measures to rescue the princess in Mario Goes Berserk.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Peach does this after Bowser kills Mario in Peach's Revenge.
- Shield Bash: "Link Didn't Get Sword".
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: "Tails Can't Die".
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Sonic Goes Berserk.
