Web Video / Forrest Fire Films


ForrestFireFilms is a Youtube cartoonist who specializes in Lego stop motion videos and made the famous "Duck song".

Tropes Include:

  • Abusive Parent: Batman basically acts like the worst father of all time despite the vagueness surrounding what his legal relationship with Robin is.
    • Indiana Jones towards Mutt Williams
      Indiana Jones: Mutt was the worst accident I've ever had.
  • Ambiguously Bi: The Dick Grayson "Robin" he has had a relationship with Mutt Williams and is repulsed by hanging around women/girls who use him for kissing contests but as Nightwing he has no problem taking a girl's number while complementing her looks.
  • An Ice Person: Mr. Freeze as expected.
  • Broken Ace: Batman here he's a drug addict and in various episodes he says he sold his equipment for crack.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Bat-Hound constantly attacks Robin by humping him, which Robin turns into an attack when he sics Bat-Hound on Mr. Freeze.
  • Continuity Nod: While Forrest's videos don't have much continuity between them, some things that happened in previous videos come back later.
    • The idols that Indiana Jones brings back are worth only about $1.50. After Batman goes on an adventure with Indy, Batman nonchalantly tells Robin this despite the fact that they desperately need money after all of Batman's wealth was taken by the IRS.
    • "Alright, you bitches. Time to die...AGAIN."
    • In "Nightwing Returns", Nightwing is shown to have invented his own state-of-the-art cloaking device. After his return to Robin, he shows off his inventing skills yet again by building a working wormhole generator.
    • Batman's titular girlfriend from "Lego Batman - The Girlfriend" shows up as a member of a massive army of villains.
  • Disproportionate Retribution:
    • Batman tells Batgirl in "New Sidekicks" that they won't go to a concert because she accidentally used her net launcher instead of her grappling hook.
    • Batman's response to Nightwing having better one-liners than him is to shoot him in the face.
    • Batman runs over an entire army of villains with a car when they dent the Batmobile.
  • Genre Savvy:
    • Batman, perhaps moreso than his mainstream counterpart, as he implants a tracker into Riddler so he and Robin don't have to follow a trail of riddles the next time he strikes.
    • The Joker. As he's transporting a truckload of Kryptonite to Lex Luthor, he takes the time to specifically drive a yellow truck, which is Green Lantern's weakness. He's also bat-proofed the vehicle...by strapping the skeletal remains of Batman's parents onto the truck.
  • Guttural Growler: Naturally, Batman falls under this. However, he is inconsistent in using it.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Both Batman and Robin fell under this in "The Lego Batman, Spider-Man, and Superman Movie" and "Lego Batman: Nightwing Returns" respectively when they join forces with the villains.
    Batman: Don't get too attached, because I'm still a good guy. I just need your help to defeat those two jerk-offs.
    Joker: B-but Batman, you murdered like ten guards stealing that Kryptonite from that museum.
    Batman: Well, that was for the greater good. Because sacrifices, uh, they have to be made.
  • Fate Worse Than Death: To punish them for their crimes, Batman sends the two Jokers to Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever.
    Robin: No, Batman! It's too cruel!
    Batman: It must be done.
  • Flat "What.": Green Goblin in The Lego Batman, Spider-Man, & Superman Movie after Joker says he doesn't swig "that" way anymore.
  • Jerkass Ball: Spider-Man in 'The Lego Batman, Spider-Man, & Superman Movie'.
  • Karma Houdini: While all the characters are jerkasses, most of them usually some sort of karmic retribution by the time the shorts are over, though Batman always comes out relatively unscathed.
  • Kick the Dog: 'Lego Justice League' shows a picture of the Joker aiming a gun at a dog.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Inverted, as Santa Claus discovers from his wife that Mr. Freeze is in fact his son.
  • Noodle Incident: Nightwing somehow got rid of all conflict in the Middle East while Batman was in the can.
    • "So I took him by the [body part] and I shoved it up his—"
  • Older Than They Look: When Batman explains that Robin's status as a minor prohibits him from taking him to a bar, Robin protests that he was actually 25 years old, much to Batman's bemusement.
  • Parody Sue: Nightwing when he returns.
  • Ping-Pong Naïveté: Robin can go from being a worthless idiot to being Batman's Hyper-Competent Sidekick and Straight Man.
  • Rule of Funny
  • Running Gag:
  • Serious Business: Batman attacks Scarecrow not because he's holding Robin hostage, but because he has his cape.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: The Tim Drake Robin to the Dick Grayson Robin there's virtually no difference between them.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Several characters die in one episode but pop up again in later videos with no explanation or reaction. In some episodes, some characters actually die multiple times.
  • Yandere: Both Robins are this to Batman.
  • Younger Than They Look: Alfred is apparently actually 18 years old, subverted since he's lying to get Robin to be the butler.
  • What an Idiot: Scarecrow's lair has a giant sign that says "Scarecrow's Lair".
