Web Video: Supernatural The Animation Abridged

Supernatural The Animation Abridged (or STAA) is an abridged series based on Supernatural on the more bizarre side of abridged series.

Made by the group TheWINChestersInc, it can be found here. Their Tumblr can be found here, and their Facebook page can be found here.

Tropes:

  • Anachronic Order: So far, the episodes of the original anime that were abridged are (in order): "The Alter Ego"note , "Roadkill"note , "Ghost on The Highway"note , "Moonlight"note , "Savage Blood"note , and "Home"note .
  • Anti-Hero: Both of the brothers. Sam is psychotic, and Dean is a serial killer.
  • A Date with Rosie Palms: Sam masturbates to the voice at the beginning of FUNimation videos.
  • Back from the Dead: Gordon, with a little help from Zachariah... for a while.
  • Bestiality Is Depraved: Right away, Dean suspects their old enemy GOOOOORDOOOOON!!! to be the cow-shafter. He is right.
  • Break the Cutie: Discussed and mercilessly parodied in episode 5.
  • Brother-Brother Incest: Between Sam and Dean at the end of episode two. It's never mentioned again, aside from a short line in episode 5.
    "HUG ME, BROTHER!"
  • Captain Obvious: "I'M ANGRY ABOUT THIS!"
  • Cloudcuckooland
  • Comedic Sociopathy: Sam and Dean are assholes. The abridged series takes any negative traits they have in canon, Flanderizes them to hell, and produces a couple of psycho killers running around, killing both monsters and people and getting mixed up in zany hijinks. Basically, imagine if Dean and Henriksen were both right about who the boys are. This is all Played for Laughs. And, truth be told, it is really funny.
  • Dean Winchester Is About to Shoot You at the End of the Fourth Episode's Teaser: Yep.
  • Death by Irony: Invoked by Alucard, who, believing that Dean is a sexual deviant (true) molesting his cows and his son (not true), plans an ironic death for him by tying him to a chair and pushing him off so that Dean will land on top of upturned pitchforks, which will then penetrate and kill him.
  • Depraved Omnisexual: Dean. Kills prostitutes after having sex with them, and there was that Twincest thing joked about earlier...
  • Disposable Sex Worker: One episode was about a Serial Killer killing prostitutes... it was Dean.
    Sam: I know, Dean. Twas you that killed the hookers!
    Dean: Only two!
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Why did Dean chuck Sam's candy bar out the window in episode 3? Sam didn't buy him one.
  • Do Wrong, Right: In episode 1, Dean and Sam are pissed that the Shapeshifter didn't kill them after attacking them, let alone bothering to hide the real Dean after taking his appearance.
  • Dude, She's Like, in a Coma!: In episode 4:
    Sam: [Madison] transformed [into a werewolf]—
    Dean: [thinking] Saw this coming.
    Sam: —during sex.
    Dean: WHAT?!
    Sam: I didn't stop. I just kept going. It was a mistake. You should see my dick.
    Dean: Why didn't she transform earlier?
    Sam: Maybe she's gotta be asleep to turn.
    Dean: [beat] So... she was asleep during...?
    Sam: Er...
    Dean: You know what, you don't have to explain.
    • Although, the implication is that she fell asleep during, not that she was already asleep.
  • Eye Scream: In episode 6, Castiel burns out Missouri's eyes in Revenge for her tricking Dean into drinking pee.
  • Filk Song: Two, one a filking of "Giggle at the Ghostie" (when the Shapeshifter is about to murder someone's wife), the other of "Hungry Like the Wolf"... while Sam's being attacked by Werewolf!Madison.
  • Fricking Laser Beams: Dean's necklace fires laser beams.
  • Funny Background Event:
    • Every shot inside the car has been edited so there's random videos in the background.
    • Dean can be heard banging on Madison's front door and yelling at Sam to let him in during Sam's inner monologue concerning "Operation Morning Dew". Part of this is Dean threatening to get in the Impala and leave Sam behind. The other part?
  • Genre Savvy: Dean, who realizes within 6 seconds that he's probably going to have to kill the vampire child he befriended.
    Dean: Oh, I can already taste the guilt. Coupled with the alcohol to deal with said guilt. Coupled with the hooker that accompanies the alcohol. And then the guilt of killing the hooker. Coupled with the alcohol to deal with the guilt, followed by another hooker...
    • Of course, then he goes Genre Blind, thinking the best plan to deal with a vampire stalking him is to turn away from the area where the vampire could attack while talking loudly into his phone.
  • Gilligan Cut: In episode 4, after Dean calls Sam telling him to let him into Madison's apartment when he gets back:
    Sam: (after hanging up) Sam loves you, Dean.
    (cut to Sam standing in the doorway of Madison's bedroom)
    Dean: (from the other side of the front door) SAM! (begins banging on the door) OPEN THE FUCKING DOOR!
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Who else but the Winchesters?
  • Imaginary Boyfriend: Sam refers to Castiel as Dean's Imaginary Friend. Dean quickly corrects him.
  • Insane Troll Logic: When Sam reads a newspaper article in episode 4 concerning hookers being killed in the area, and noticing that a picture in it resembles Dean, what does Dean do in response?
    Dean: (grabs the paper and moves it away from Sam and onto the bed) And now the paper's over there! What say you now?
    Dean: Hypothesis accepted!
  • Jump Scare: Technically, Sam spontaneously screaming in episode 4 counts.
  • Kick the Dog: In episode 2, after being fed up with dealing with Molly, Sam decides to reveal to her that she's been dead for 15 years and her husband moved on out of spite.
    Sam: It's amazing how I've hated you completely since we've met and you're STILL losing points!
    Molly: It's amazing how little I care about what some douchebag in faggy little pants thinks!
  • Medium Awareness: The Winchesters can hear the closing song in episode 4. ...and begin laughing over how it fits with Madison's death.
  • Mind Screw:
    • Alucard tries to do this to Dean in episode 5. Castiel does it more effectively back to him when he zaps all the pitchforks away and sticks them in haystacks that had not in fact even existed on Alucard's farm before then. That in particular gets Alucard riled up.
      Alucard: Do you feel my huge cock in your ear? Fucking your mind?
      Dean: Aw, dude, that's so not cool, my ear just started to itch.
    • There's one scene in episode 4 that none of the characters can explain why it happened: Sam spontaneously screaming and Dean teleporting out of Madison's apartment.
  • Mythology Gag: Roughly a quarter of the abridged series' humor. You can watch it without having watched the show and still get some laughs, but a Supernatural fan will pick up on some very clever little in-jokes. Example:
    Dean: Sorry. I got lost in my own head.
  • Not Me This Time: When Sam thinks that Dean is the one mutilating and shafting cows in episode 5.
  • Papa Wolf: Alucard.
  • Pedo Hunt: A bullied kid asks Dean to train him, to which he agrees, but his father believes he's a pedophile and so tries to kill him.
  • Plot Hole: Dean spontaneously appearing in the apartment after Sam locked him out in episode 4. This is lampshaded by the man himself:
    Dean: Well, apparently, I'm back. Nobody let me in, I don't know how I got here...
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: Both Sam and Dean are both sexist and homophobic. Played for Laughs.
    Sam: What the fuck is wrong with you!
    Molly: I don't know any better.
    Dean: (nods furiously) It's true, she is a woman.
  • Race Lift: Gordon, a black man, is resurrected as a white man (with an Australian accent!). The anime character was intended to be a totally different character, but he was so obviously based on Gordon that the abridged series just rolled with it.
  • Running Gag: In scenes from inside the car, instead of the road passing by outside the windows it's nonsensical Stock Footage. The boys have driven through things ranging from The Angry Video Game Nerd to Spongebob Squarepants to a YouTube copyright claim.
    • In episode 2, mentions of "You dirty fat whore".
  • Sanity Slippage: Sam immediately starts going nuts in episode 4 after Dean disappears from Madison's boring apartment.
  • Say My Name: Dean does this repeatedly with "SAM!" and "GORDON!"
  • Screamer Prank: In the opening of the first episode.
  • Self-Serving Memory: At the end of episode 6, Dean leaves out a key moment in his recap:
    Dean: Dude, we saved a family, destroyed a meme, and got to see mom again. All in all, a good day!
    Sam: (looking incredulous) You drank pee!
  • Shout-Out: Episode four's opening is a huge shout-out to Death Note.
    • The "HUG ME BROTHER!!!" line mentioned above is said pretty much the same way as on Drake & Josh.
      • Even better. Did you the reader hear it that way in your head? If so good.
  • Skewed Priorities: While Sam is being attacked by Werewolf!Madison in episode 4, Dean is dancing and singing a "Hungry Like The Wolf"-style Filk Song. Dean even points out in his lyrics that he should be helping... but "[he doesn't] give a fuck".
  • Soundtrack Dissonance:
    • The climactic scene of Dean and Shapeshifter!Sam fighting in the Impala on the highway and Real!Sam running up to shoot Shapeshifter!Sam through the windshield in episode 1 is set to, of all things, The Youngblood's "Come Together".
  • Stating the Simple Solution: After the vampire's elaborate plan to impale Dean on pitchforks fails:
    Vampire: [after lamenting how his plan went wrong] To be honest, the thought of killing you seems kind of empty.
    Dean: Aw, thanks man, I really appre—
    Vampire: [Evil Laughs] PSYCH, I'M THIRSTY!!
  • Talking in Your Sleep: Sam says his entire sex dream out loud in episode 2.
    Sam: ...did you hear anything?
    Dean: I heard enough forever.
  • Take That:
    • In-Universe, Dean eating Pizza Time pizza in episode 5 made him give up on food entirely... until he got hungry.
      Dean: "Pizza Time"? Time for pizza! (cut to a clip of Live Action!Dean spitting up pizza) THIS PIZZA TASTES LIKE SHIT!
    • Not only is the similarity pointed out in the episode itself (where upon it's clarified that the Ghost Impala kills gay people instead of black people), but the description for episode 3 is:
      The Animation's failed attempt at "Route 666".
  • The Power of Hate:
    • How Dean's necklace shoots lasers: if Dean is particularly pissed about something, it will go off. While Dean screams his own name.
      Dean: (thinking) Damn you, tree. I fell out of you and broke Sam's arm. (necklace activates) DEEEEAAAANNNN!
      [...]
      That Mom Like Person: Is my tree on fire?!
      Dean We would love to come in!
    • How Sam describes killing Molly in episode 2:
      Sam: (cheerful) I killed a ghost with nothing but hateful words!
  • This Is Gonna Suck: Dean realizing he'll eventually have to kill that vampire kid in episode 6... and we already quoted that. But we didn't quote THIS:
    Vampire Kid: I'm sorry... Probably has to do with me being a vampire...
    Dean: Is that right? Well, fuuuu-uuuuuck...
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: No, vampire kid, you cannot eat anyone's balls! And stop strangling Dean!
  • Verbal Tic: The husband in episode two who starts his sentences with "Pleeeeeaaassseee". This drives his wife to kill him.
    • When ever Dean mentions / thinks about Gordon, he has to scream his name.
    Dean: (concerning checkers) No! I refuse to be black! GORDON!
  • The Voice: Castiel in episodes 5 and 6.
  • Yandere: Sam turns into one for Madison in episode four.
    Sam: I am your boyfriend now. Dream about my dick.
