Web Animation: Sonic Zombie
Meet the team: Tails, Amy, Rouge, and Sonic.
The Sonic Zombie series is a saga of Stylistic Suck videos made in Garry's Mod featuring Sonic the Hedgehog and friends in the midst of a Zombie Apocalypse. They were created by Balena Productions, who became famous for his Sonic In Jaws video.

     List of Episodes (In chronological order): 

Tropes that appear:

  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: Happens with just about every character at some point, intentionally or not thanks to always being dragged around by their heads.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: Cream and Knuckles.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: A very common theme amongst the monsters featured in the series, with the use of the inflator tool.
  • Back from the Dead: All the time.
  • Bad Bad Acting: This series is built off shoddy acting. Here's an example form Vengeance:
    Knuckles: Sonic man, I got an idea. We can take up to that.. that crane thing up there that's what it's called I think a crane.
  • Batman Gambit: Silver's ultimate goal in Vengeance revolves around this.
  • Berserk Button: Don't ever say you used Tails' tacos to summon a giant monster.
    • Or say you're hungry for one yourself. Amy and Charmy found this out the hard way.
  • Bi the Way: Knuckles is usually straight in the series, but that changes in Doom Ship The Movie when he notices Espio's horn, which leads into a romance, though it ends in tragedy.
  • Camera Abuse: In Gmod, the camera works very much like a tripod. Cue the numerous moments when someone decides to touch it and the camera topples over, sometimes sending it into a spinning frenzy or launching it across the room.
  • Companion Cube: Tails' tacos.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Vector experiences this once his ship begins to sink, so he allows himself to go down with the ship.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: In the one time someone (Charmy) got dangerously close to taking a bite out of one of Tails' tacos, Tails grabs him by the head and lets out an extreme flow of diarrhea on him, which knocks Charmy out of the room unconscious and completely blackened.
  • Disney Villain Death: Both Shadow and Eggman die in Thing this way. The former returns in Diaries and the later in Vengeance.
  • Doomy Dooms of Doom: The seventh episode is called "Sonic Zombie Doom Ship The Movie"
  • Dull Surprise:
    Sonic: (in Origins) Look out behind you.
  • Enemy Mine: To save his own life, Eggman is forced into joining the heroes during the zombie attack in Doom Ship.
  • Epic Fail: Due to the Stylistic Suck nature of the videos, these are all over the place.
  • Evil Twin: A plot point in Space.
  • Every Episode Ending: Most episodes end with the currently-alive cast escaping in aircraft. Helicopters are the most common..
    Knuckles: Wow, man that's kinda lucky, how often do you really think anyone would find a helicopter?
    Amy: Well actually we find one at like, the end of all these videos.
  • Everything's Deader with Zombies
  • Fur Against Fang: Knuckles (who is revolved to have become a vampire after surviving the events of Origins) and Sonic the "Hornhog" fight each other in Vengeance for a brief time.
  • Gag Boobs: To become Super Sonic in Origins, Sonic grabs and forcefully rubs Rouge's boobs.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: Many of the monsters the heroes meet appear with little to no backstory, and are there just to give the heroes something to fight.
  • Go for the Eye: When Monster Silver suddenly appears on Blaze's starship, Sonic promptly throws a lightsaber into his eye.
    Sonic: May the hooba be with you.
  • Hammerspace: Somehow Tails was able to fit a giant boat inside Rouge's ass.
  • Hilarious Outtakes: It is implied that every scene across the series is done in one take, and with no script, leaving anything in that would be considered an Outtake by normal standards.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: Origins gives us this:
    Sonic: Douching through the snow, driving my Hummer, which I don't really need, cause I'm only a single guy!
  • I'm a Woman, I Can't Help It: During the entire series Amy repeatedly requests to have sex with Sonic.
  • Interspecies Romance: Sonic and Rouge both have sex out in the woods in Diaries.
    • Tails attempts to get it on with Blaze in Space.
  • Jiggle Physics / Ragdoll Physics: All over the place. Literally every character is dragged around by their head, leaving their other parts to swing around.
  • Kill the Cutie: Baby Sonic, Charmy and Cream are killed off only moments after being introduced.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Parodied in Space with Robotnik and Sonic.
    Robotnik: They never told you what happened to heccch!
    Sonic: They told me enough. They told me hooba dooba!
    Robotnik: No! I am the heccch!
    Sonic: No.
  • Made of Iron / No One Could Survive That: Constantly.
  • Male Gaze: Every time Rouge the Bat is in focus, the camera will almost always zoom into her breasts, often with sexual remarks from the narrator.
  • May the Farce Be with You: Space is a very obvious parody of Star Wars, with Blaze's starship being the Death Star and Sonic battling a clone of Dr. Eggman with a Lightsaber.
  • The Mole: Robotnik in Zombie Thing, Silver in Zombie Diaries.
  • Monster of the Week: Every entry in the series has at least one. Zombie Knuckles, Godzilla with the Tank, Satan, Hornhog Sonic with Monster Silver, then a sea monster.
  • National Stereotypes: All over the place. The easiest and probably most offensive is Tails' Mexican heritage.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: In yet another attempt to "do'' Sonic, Amy instead decides to have sex with one of the many Sonic clones on Blaze's starship, accidentally releasing everyone else's clones, including Dr. Eggman's.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Sort of. If Satan didn't go and announce he used the power of Tails' tacos, he wouldn't be beaten to death by a young mexican fox who suddenly went insane.
  • Oh Crap:
    • Cream when she meets a zombie face-first.
    • Rouge when she sees Cream being attacked.
    • Tails discovering his Tacos have vanished.
    • Sonic when Rouge reveals she got pregnant.
      • And then Amy when she finds out.
    • Tails' reaction to the initial zombie attack in Vengeance
  • One-Winged Angel: Knuckles and Silver.
  • Our Slogan Is Terrible: Sonic in this series is an employee at Pizza Hut, and throughout Thing, he makes up many poor slogans.
  • Overly Long Name: Given by the narrator via some colorful dialogue to Eggman in Vengeance:
    Dr. RoFatassf***ingFatFattyFatf***ingf***ingFatSonOfAB***F***ingFattyFat… Yeah, he’s pretty much fat.
  • Panty Shot: Unintended. Amy has these thanks to the Rag Doll Physics of the characters.
  • Perpetual Poverty: In effect starting from Vengeance; the team repeatedly mentions not eating for days, but no one has shown signs of starving or being physically weaker from the lack of food. For instance, even on an empty stomach, Knuckles is still able to defeat a gang of zombies without receiving any type of body damage or bites.
  • Potty Emergency: Sonic and Shadow in Doom Ship once the Swedish meatballs Vector fed them earlier kick in. They find Rouge and Tails waiting outside while Amy uses the restroom.
  • Power Incontinence: Sort of. Sonic's "Hornhog" form in Vengeance causes him to become hostile and having a thing for raping his victims to death. He can still speak and even questions what happened to him, though the main characters remain scared to approach Sonic in Hornhog form.
  • Recycled In SPACE: Sonic Zombies in Space
  • Red Shirt: Mario, Spider-Man, and Ralph are brought on-screen for only a few seconds before they are axed off by the current Monster of the Week.
  • Red Sky, Take Warning: What signals the appearances of Godzilla in Thing and the zombies as a whole in Diaries.
  • Satan: the Big Bad of Diaries.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Thanks to the logic that any of Blaze's clones that has a living counterpart on Earth that dies in some way inherits the memories of their deceased counterpart, the clone of Dr. Eggman accidentally released by Amy is just as dangerous as the real one Sonic killed an episode prior.
  • Serial Rapist: Hornhog Sonic. The only one that sees this as a good thing is Amy, since she is constantly trying to get near Sonic.
  • Sinking Ship Scenario: The second half of Doom Ship.
  • Skyward Scream: Tails gives out one after his tacos go missing thanks to Silver.
    • Sonic too when Baby Sonic dies.
  • Sorry, I'm Gay: Early in Origins, Amy asks Sonic if he could "comfort her", followed by Sonic answering with this trope.
  • Spexico: How Tails is portrayed.
  • Spoiler Opening: The preview images for both Origins and Vengeance reveal several key plot elements. Origins' reveals that Knuckles will become zombified and Sonic will have to power up using Rouge's boobs, Vengeance spoils Sonic becoming a "Hornhog" and the return of both Knuckles and Silver after they were killed off in prior episodes.
    • Doom Ship The Movie spoils that Eggman will join the heroes, Knuckles and Espio will romance, a sea monster will attack the ship and Tails will pull a lifeboat out of Rouge's ass to escape.
    • Sonic even lampshades the spoiler-tier thumbnails in both Origins and Vengeance.
  • Swallowed Whole: In Vengeance, Monster Silver kills Shadow this way, however Silver is later impaled on some poles, meaning Shadow could still be alive and escaped from Silver's dead body offscreen.
    • The next episode Space confirms that Shadow did indeed die inside Silver's body, since according to Blaze, Shadow's life readings have dropped to zero, resulting in the team picking up a clone of Shadow during their visit on Blaze's Starship.
    • Doom Ship shows Sonic and Tails being swallowed by the giant sea monster that attacks Vector's ship, leading to the two depositing two of Vector's laxative "meatballs" in the stomach, causing the monster back to suddenly erupt with feces, expelling Sonic and Tails in the process.
  • Take That: In the first episode released, Sonic's voice was meant to be a Take That towards the then-current voice actor for Sonic, Jason Griffith. It later changed to a Roger Craig Smith Take That after Sega switched official voice actors.
    • Doom Ship shows Tails' hatred towards Taco Bell.
    Tails: Oh this would've never happened if we just had tacos!
    Sonic: Heh. What are you f***ing kidding me? Have you ever had Taco Bell before?
    Tails: Taco Bell does not serve tacos, they serve... dog food!
  • Take That, Audience!: Near the end of Vengeance, Sonic makes a quick stab at viewers who take the series seriously and don't see it as a Stylistic Suck series. Another such stunt would appear in Space.
  • Toilet Humor: The entire main cast sans Knuckles in Doom Ship all rush and argue over the restroom on Vector's ship after experiencing harsh diarrhea from the odd-looking meatballs they ate earlier. Things don't get much better when Tails catches Charmy about to munch one of his tacos.
    • The Monster of the Week gets this too when Sonic inserts spare "meatballs" into it's stomach, which causes the sea monster to experience a rather harsh case of diarrhea.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Knuckles, at least in his first appearance in Origins. When he finds Espio with a zombie bite on his shoulder in Doom Ship, he recognizes it, compared to when Cream had a bite and bit Knuckles in Origins.
  • Unlikely Hero: In Diaries, it is ultimately Tails that defeats Satan.
  • Verbal Tic: Sonic's "Whooba Dooba Doo" phrases, especially in Vengeance.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: For a series based around zombies, the only scene to contain any form of zombie attack in Space is the opening attack in the deserted city's sewers.
