Web Animation: Kingdumb Hearts
Kingdumb Hearts, created by Roger van der Weide, is a Flash animation series which lampoons the Kingdom Hearts franchise. So far, 11 movies (not counting trailers) have been made, covering all major games. The Birth by Sleep parody, titled "Bored to Sleep", is currently ongoing. There don't seem to be any plans for coded.

Despite poor animation and variable voice acting quality, the series is fairly well-liked due to its ironic and Genre Savvy sense of humor.

Tropes included:

  • Affectionate Parody: Sort of...Roger van der Weide doesn't really like the series so much as likes to dislike it.
    • Well, in the first video he said "Fun game, great graphics, nice music... and retarded storyline and plot elements." Besides, if he disliked it, he wouldn't have gone to the trouble of buying the games that followed.
  • Argument of Contradictions: In the first installment of 14 Days and 5 Min, Xemnas has a brief argument of a contradictions with a couple of the other members of Organization XIII over how many members there are now in the Organization - he says 13 and they say 14. One of them tries to end the argument by calling in the The Count, but Xemnas ends it by killing one of them.
  • Autobots, Rock Out!: Let's Fighting Love plays during the fight against the Nobodies in Kingdumb Hearts II part 2.
  • Back from the Dead: Maleficent. Then Minnie squashed her under a door.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: "Hey Sora, we're just here, you know, chilling, looking at the landscape, and about to be battling in this huge war."
  • Catch Phrase: Sora - "Wheeee!"
    • Axel's "Eat your ice cream before it melts." which he uses to avoid certain topics of conversation. Or even when it doesn't make any sense.
  • Chirping Crickets: In the opening installment after Aladdin runs up to Sora, Donald and Goofy and rambles at them.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Sora, Axel (most of the time), and Xion when she starts taking on Sora's craziness.
  • Cut Away Gag: Some. Such as Axel trying to bond with Xemnas in the clock tower and failing spectacularly, or Xaldin's misadventures in Atlantica.
  • Dance Party Ending: Once an Episode
  • Disney Acid Sequence: One at the end of every episode.
    • Also during load times for the proper videos, more recently.
  • Disney Villain Death: Heavily lampshaded.
  • Evil Gloating: Parodied.
    Haha, see Roxas, the heart is strong, but lightness can fade when darkness comes, and darkness does light and light and courage and then the heart has darkness, etc.
    • And that's just an example.
  • Face Palm: Donald, shortly following the chirping crickets described above
  • Faux Symbolism: Anytime a member of the Organization tries to explain something.
    • The heart is strong, but lightness can fade when darkness comes, and darkness brings light and courage and then the heart has darkness from the light. Do you understand now?
    • No...
    • Good!
  • Fusion Dance: Sora and Roxas, Kairi and Namine.
  • Genre Savvy: Particularly Roxas, Donald, Goofy, and Sora when he's not being crazy.
  • Heroic Sacrifice / Senseless Sacrifice: Parodied with Axel. "I'll destroy myself to defeat you because... I'm the token RPG dramatic commit suicide for no reason guy! AAAAAH! *splat*"
    • Sora, too.
    I'll just commit suicide, WHEEEEEEE!
  • Improbable Weapon User: Sora at one point uses an actual house key because he left the Keyblade in the Gummi Ship.
  • Knight Templar: Aqua burns with insane rage whenever she thinks someone associated with darkness is nearby.
  • Large Ham: Marluxia and Xemnas.
  • Magnetic Hero: Sora manages to have Aladdin give him his credit card within the first 10 seconds of their meeting.
  • Mind Screw: Part 3 of the 358/2 Days parody, oh so much. Still an hilarious Mind Screw.
  • The Narrator: The story of "Bored to Sleep" is told by Xemnas to the Organization XIII.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Sora is oddly sober during the second video of Kingdumb Hearts II. Might have had something to do with The Other Darrin.'
    • Same goes for Axel during the later half of the 358/2 Days parody, where he acts like the Only Sane Man who's weirded out by what's happening around him.
  • Running Gag: All members of Organization XIII tripping over themselves whenever Saix calls them to attention.
  • Ship Tease: Saix and Larxene, of all the people, get this in the 358/2 Days parodies.
    Larxene: Proposing to you for marriage, SIR!
    • Also in the 358/2 Days parodies, the Part 2 pre-loader animation hints at a pairing between Xion and a banana! This has not gone un-noticed by people who have the track for the pre-loader uploaded on YouTube.
    • Demyx composing a song for Saix.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Xemnas appears in alot more videos that one would think neccesary...
  • Take That: Too many to list.
  • Trigger Phrase: In order to stop Axel from being an Axe Crazy murderer, one just has to say "kittens".
  • The Unintelligible: Donald has a weird history with this. In the first parody, he's almost perfectly intelligible; in COM, he's more similar to his official portrayal, but the subtitles fix that; in Kingdumb Hearts II, he's so unintelligible that Sora replaces him with Uncle Scrooge and a subplot involves Donald trying to get his revenge.
  • Vagueness Is Coming: "It has done it. And now she will do the thing, and then, what I told you about will happen to HIM, will happen to her, when it is done! Then we need to do... THE THING!" Only Xemnas and Saix get it.
  • Video Game Tutorial:
    Roxas: Don't tell me, we get the boring tutorial level now.
    Axel: Haha Roxas, what a silly thought. This is Square-Enix. We don't have a tutorial level, we have 500 of them!
  • Volleying Insults: Riku and Xion just shout at each other "You're fake!" until Xion yields.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Parodied.
    Larxene: I have the power of lightning! {Shoots a lightning bolt.}
    Vexen: I have the power of ice. {Freezes the entire room.}
    Xemnas: And I have the power over NOTHING! {Thrusts out his hand. Nothing happens.}
