A YouTube Poop made by user Geibuchan. It chronicles the journey and hardships of King Harkinian commonly referred to as The King by most fans of him) from the Zelda CDI games. That's about the extent of that....ADVENTURE HO!It's a lot more to it that just simply The King going on a quest. He is apparently fed up that Link and Zelda won't eat his 'dinner' (which is actually shit), and this drives him to make the world...well...eat it. So he goes to kick some ass. So far, The King has dueled with a few of the bosses he must defeat in order to prove himself worthy.So begins the epic series that is called The King's Epic Adventure. Expect much randomness and oddities. This being a YouTube Poop of a more unique kind (as in, one that doesn't rely solely on random clips and other stuff normally seen in YouTube Poops, though it does utilize some aspects), it's quite good.
Actor Allusion: In the last scene of Episode 3, Part 3, Robotnik goes back to his lair; a clip of "It Still Ain't Easy" (a song by Robotnik's voice actor, blues musician Long John Baldry) can be heard.
An Offer You Can't Refuse: After crashing the set of Lucky Channel, The King threatens Akira to try his shit or else he'll kill her. She makes her choice rather quickly.
Anti-Villain: Bowser Koopa, Type II. While he's clearly as evil as always, he was banished from the Mushroom Kingdom having been beaten by the Mario Bros. and was forced to move into an inferior and pretty cheap castle. He just wants his old castle back.
Art Shift: In Part 2 of Episode 2, the series switches to an animated version of a comic that Geibuchan drew over 2 years ago.
Animation Bump: Compare the first two episodes with the third one. The animation is smoother, the effects are better, and it's visually pleasing. Of course, Geibuchan did upgrade to Adobe Premiere after the second episode was completed.
The fourth episode, from the first part seen so far, looks excellent. The King in particular is now lip-synching much better, and the sprites now look like they aren't totally ripped from the game.
Snake's no slouch either, but him being a Badass was already established. Even Otacon gets his moments.
Badass Boast: The King tries to do this in Episode 4, but totally failed at it.
The King: Is anyone hungry? Because I'm gonna shit myself!
Otacon: It's not like you to whine, King.
The King: No I'm not scared! I was trying to sound awesome!
Later in the episode Snake actually pulls one off.
Bowser: Scram, pests, or I'll call an exterminator!
Snake: You don't have what it takes to kill me.
Bait-and-Switch Boss: Inverted in episode 3. Tomo tries to strangle Sonic for destroying her robot and humiliating her, but he dashes away and, invariably, she ends up crashing into The King, sending both of them into the ocean. What happens next is absolute chaos under the sea.
Berserk Button: Apparently, The King's is having his shit told it's stinky, as told by Konata and her friends in episode 3.
Don't insult Robotnik about his thing with Yomi.
Link doesn't really take it too well when you get in the way of his plots to kill Zelda.
Big Bad: Robotnik has been getting quite a bit of prominence lately, probably leading to some people guessing that he's the main villain of the series. However, his stage has been hit, but he hasn't been taken out. Whether there will be another villain in wait or not is anyone's guess.
Blank White Eyes: Tsukasa's been stuck like this ever since Snake fought Konata.
Justified, as her and Kagami were apparently raped by Scratch and Grounder.
Cool Car: BLACK BULL, I SUMMON YOU! It's even used to defeat Scatterbrain!
Creator Backlash: If the annotations are anything to go by, Geichuban isn't proud of Episode 2. The annotations for Episode 1 also say Episode 3 is "500000x better than [the first] two episodes combined!".
The Dragons: So far, Tomo, Scratch, Grounder, and Coconuts all to Robotnik.
Epic Fail: Try taking a shot every time you see a hilarious failure. You'll probably be dead by the end of the second to third episode.
Eureka Moment: Miyuki suggesting to the King to advertise his shit on Lucky Channel, and it works.
Even Evil Has Standards: When Kagami steals Konata's DS following Konata's fight with Snake, she draws red facial hair on the King and mockingly calls him a "ginger". Konata then yells, "Don't be dissin' the ginger!"
The Load: Several characters, but Tsukasa is probably the worst of the lot.
The Long List: Robotnik's reward that he offers to Tomo Takino in episode 1.
Dr. Robotnik: "TYRANNY, CONQUEST, DICTATORSHIP, a tiny sack of dirty gold, a tip, BEEANZ, a whole cart of wonderful ju- I MEAN merchandise, love, an all expenses paid adventure holiday for YOU, this web of gooey, gunky cords, and a whole ARMY of robot soldiers to trample Mobius into submission, TEA, and something to eat, and ONE BILLION RINGS!"
Lottery Of Doom: Tomo Takino's special attacks. Suffice to say The King is in mortal peril when she wins the jackpot...but is thankfully saved when she is crushed underneath a Robotnik statue.
Love Interest: Robotink has gotten the hots for Yomi at the end of episode 2, and this carries over to episode 3 and presumably beyond.
MacGuffin: Otacon finds a Chaos Emerald once Robotnik and his Quirky Miniboss Squad retreat near the end of episode 3. Whether this will serve any importance later in the series is yet to be seen.
Mad Artist: Well it was by using Picto Chat, but Konata still created the bosses to attack The King, so it still counts.
Mad Bomber: Otacon becomes this briefly in episode 3 for apparently no reason at all.
Made of Indestructium: Scatterbrain, at first. It takes Harkinian getting a Starman out of his dizzy spell to beat him.
Made of Iron: The King takes a lot of punishment, mostly from the bosses. Notably, he's the only person in the series who lacks a health bar and takes punishment like it was nothing.
Oh Crap: Some of the characters have some priceless reactions to bad things happening.
The Other Darrin: About half of Konata's dialog is original lines, rather than sampled like everyone else's. These portions are voiced by YukariKanashii88.
Only Sane Man: Snake is the only one in this series that's neither weird nor completely insane. One could argue that Robotnik could be an example as well. Sure, there's his thing for Yomi and the fact that hiring someone like Tomo was obviously a bad idea, but he's the only one that seems to realize that eating the King's shit is absolutely disgusting.
Overly-Long Gag: The King running all over the place before meeting Snake in the first episode.
As mentioned before, the King's obsession with making people eat his shit.
Link constantly trying and failing to murder Zelda.
The KingWangsting over constantly forgetting to make the bosses eat his shit before he beats them up.
Tomo's obsession with juice. Lampshaded by Robotnik in episode 3.
"Do you really like juice that much?!"
Schedule Slip: Technically averted. Geibuchan says he only works on episodes during the summertime, so expect to see one new episode every year. So far, he's lived up to that promise.
When making episode 3, his computer DID get infected, so the trope was played straight for a bit.
Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Not thirty seconds into trying to find Konata at night through "Hell's Village", he says "Screw this shit.", summons Black Bull, and drives all the way to the festival she's currently at.
Selective Obliviousness / Weirdness Censor: After "persuading" Akira to eat it, The King's shit becomes a highly demanded and mass-marketed product. And nobody but The King's enemies seems to get how disgusting this is.
As of episode four, The King's shit has only really reached as far as Japan. Figures...
Shout-Out: The amount of these in the series is ridiculous, but it almost feels like watching old memories in a new light.
Spit Take: Akira Kogami does this near the end of episode 3, upon tasting The King's shit for the first time. And yet, she still thinks it's delicious...
Squashed Flat: Tomo, briefly. A golden Robotnik statue lands on her after her slot machine attack fails.
Stay in the Kitchen: The King tells Miyuki in Episode 4 to stay in Japan. She tries to convince The King to let her come in order to save Kagami and Tsukasa, but The King gives her five good reasons why she shouldn't.
The Stinger: During the ending of the main video for episode 4, part 2. After our heroes as well as the Koopas head to Bowser's original castle, Meta Knight can be seen on a nearby cliff watching them go by.
Stylistic Suck: Konata's enemies fall under this. Well, except for the Tamama cameo, which looks much better drawn than most of the enemies she draws.
Take Over the World: Not really take over the world per se, but The King wants his shit to be advertised all around the world rather than Japan.
Translator Microbes: When the King first finds Konata, he can't get his message across as she speaks Japanese. He promptly heads back to the stage select and complains to Snake, who provides him with a translator earpiece.
