Western Animation: Titan Maximum
Palmer: Jodi! Check your watch!
Palmer: What time is it?
Jodi: Um, it's about three-forty—
Palmer: TIME TO PUNCH THE FUCK OUT OF IT!What would happen if the cast of Voltron started drinking, went on a binge, and pretty much threw up acid all over the place? Well, that depends on who caught it all on tape — and in the case of Titan Maximum, the fine folks who gave us Robot Chicken ended up doing just that.In the future, mankind has colonized the entire solar system, including Saturn. Saturn's moon, Titan, needed protection during its war against Mars — and to that end, it created Titan Maximum, a Combining Mecha which serves as its last, best line of defense for Titan's capital. While Titan Maximum's pilots (egocentric and narcissistic Palmer; Parody Sue Jodi; stuck up Sasha; plan man Gibbs; and The Big Guy, Spuds) never saw eye-to-eye with each other, they always managed to get the job done. After budget cuts, the team — who all but hated each other by the end — went their separate ways.Years later, most of Titan Force Five find themselves failing at civilian life: Palmer hangs out at bars trying to pick up chicks; Jodi fights just a little too hard while juggling charity work; Sasha spends most of her time at dance clubs trying to become a popstar (between bouts of binge drinking and lots of meaningless sex); and Spuds fell off a balcony during a party and died.What happened to Gibbs? During a televised interview, Gibbs reveals what he plans to do: "conquer the Solar System, crush all who oppose [him], and name [himself] 'Super King Big Nuts'."The three remaining members of Titan Force Five reassemble to fight Gibbs and his new evil compatriots — and since they need to replace Spuds and Gibbs, they round out the team with Willie, Palmer's rather overeager yet technically-brilliant younger brother (who graduated as an engineer — from DeVry), and Leon, the surly monkey who worked as janitor of the team's abandoned base. Once the new Titan Force Five manages to get Titan Maximum working again, they become the solar system's best hope of stopping Gibbs — but their dysfunctional teamwork and clashing personalities also make them a danger to pretty much everyone else, including their commanding officer, Admiral Bitchface.Despite powerhouse ratings when it first aired (it often beat out new episodes of The Venture Bros., [adult swim]'s most popular original series), Seth Green halted all production on the show to focus on his self-admitted Cash Cow Franchise, Robot Chicken — even though he wasn't a creator or producer, and Matthew Senreich said he had enough material for "maybe ten seasons" of the show in an interview.
Titan Maximum provides examples of the following tropes:
- Affectionate Parody: They say the Humongous Mecha genre, but Voltron is the obvious target.
- All There in the Manual: Gibbs's full name is Gibson Giberstein, avoiding the Last Name Basis problem Palmer has. There is ZERO mention of this throughout any of the 9 episodes of the entire first season, and he goes by Gibbs anyway...or Super King Big Nuts, whichever you prefer.
- Also that the Earth has gone through "troubles".
- Annoying Younger Sibling: Willie.
- Anything That Moves: Sasha lives this. So much so that she actually defends Jodi's right to sleep with Gibbs because of it.
- Ascended Fanboy: Willie.
- Attention Whore: Sasha.
- Awesome, yet Impractical: Titan Maximum itself. In theory it's a decent idea, albeit one that's ridiculously expensive. In practice your pilots end up being a team of morons who if not for their skill as pilots would likely have brought death upon Titan faster than Mars ever could have. They are an absolute pain in the ass to deal with for both the President and Bitchface, in both iterations.
- As if that weren't enough, Titan Maximum has extremely advanced weapons systems, but what does every fight come down to? Punching the bad guy. Preferably in the crotch.
- Ax-Crazy: At least in the hillbilly episode, Sasha. Specifically when she's shooting a guy in the leg over and over while she laughs.
- The Bad Guy Wins: The first season ends with Gibbs succeeding in bringing down the solar shield around Mercury, with the team able to do nothing but stand there looking shocked.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: Between Troy and Sasha. Clearly shown where they are dancing romantically, all while insulting each other.
- Berserk Button: Sasha may not like Jodi, but she will defend her right to sleep with whoever she wants, whenever she wants.
- Betty and Veronica: Jodi and Sasha, big time.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Jodi, to put it charitably, goes absolutely ape-shit on Gibbs after he releases the sex tape he made in "To Eris, Human!". Even Sasha is surprised.
- Big Damn Heroes: Leon pulls one of these in the pilot to save Jodi, otherwise Titan Maximum is great at subverting it.
- Big Fun: Spud really loved to party - which, unfortunately, is why he fell off a 400-story building and died.
- Bond One-Liner: Palmer is a big fan of "Hey, you've got something in your teeth...MY FIST!" but it takes him a long time in between saying the line and throwing the punch.
- And then he usually just kicks the target.
- Book Ends: Last line in the pilot and the finale: "Look what you did, Jodi."
- Bring My Brown Pants:
- In the pilot, after Jodi brutally takes apart the students in her martial arts class, one of says he smells pee. She confirms that, if done properly, one of the moves she performed will cause involuntary urination.
- In the same episode, the captain of the martian gunship after they realize that Titan Force Five has spotted them.
- In the second to last episode, Palmer throws a mechanic on his head, causing him to piss his pants.
- In the same episode, the Homeowners Association President gives us this:General: There's no way he or the bomb could survive those temperatures.
Gibbs: [sarcastic] Yes, no way at all. Unless of course he had a robot specifically designed to survive those temperatures, and a bomb outfitted with an insulated coil... [does a dramatic gasp for effect] Oh, wait! He does! You may now commence the utter and total crapping of your drawers.
President: He wasn't kidding about those drawers.
- In the pilot, after Jodi brutally takes apart the students in her martial arts class, one of says he smells pee. She confirms that, if done properly, one of the moves she performed will cause involuntary urination.
- Butt Monkey: Jodi and Willie.
- Catch Phrase:
- Palmer's "Time to punch the fuck out of it!"
- Gibbs' flipping the bird each episode could be considered a non-verbal version of this. There's also his less-widely used actual catch phrase, "Moooooooooo!", which he uses to grab attention.
- Sasha says "bitch" a lot. Also, she has "Look what you did Jodi".
- Don't forget "Duuuhhhh, good one, Jodi!"
- Palmer also has "There's something in your teeth... my fist!" Followed by him using an attack which isn't a punch.
- The Chessmaster: Gibbs.
- Cluster F-Bomb: Sasha. Here's an example:Sasha: Gibbs, you motherfucking traitor! When I find you, I'm gonna fuck you in both your eye sockets with your own dick! Do you hear me? I'm gonna make sure your buried with your dick hanging out of your left eye! Do you hear me? Your mom's gonna see it!
Gibbs: Don't forget to stab me in the ears, too, darling, so I won't have to listen to another one of your albums.
Sasha: You motherfucking cocksucker... [Palmer cuts her mic off, disturbing hand motions continue.]
- Coitus Uninterruptus: Gibbs is able to do this without even his partner Jodi noticing that he's given instructions to his assistant Clare, who's video taping it, and even using Authentication by Newspaper to prove the date.
- Combat Pragmatist: Jodi and Sasha manage to beat Clare by resorting to cheating.
- Comically Missing the Point: After Jodi and Gibbs' sex tape has been released:Palmer: [making beeping noises while aiming some random device] Uh oh, I'm picking up a massive whore approaching, Willie. Set our whore shields to full power!
Palmer: I was talking about you, Jodi; you're the whore! [throws device to Willie]
Willie: This isn't even on!
- Creepy Child: Clare.
- Actually she is 21, she just looks and acts like one
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Palmer and (especially) Sasha are both idiots, but can definitely hand you your ass in a fight.
- Da Chief: Admiral Bitchface.
- Daddy's Girl: Sasha. Subverted somewhat in that the President has no patience for Sasha's bullshit and sees how Awesome, yet Impractical Titan Maximum is.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: Gibbs has one such moment at the end of the first season. When the heroes manage to deactivate the timer for his bomb and beat him up, Gibbs just remote-detonates the thing and escapes while they're celebrating.Gibbs: "Enjoy your teammate friendship asslickin' kum-ba-ya bullshit while I just go ahead and win."
- This is even more impressive because the bomb was located inside an energy beam that rendered it virtually inaccessible. The bomb and method of placement were both specially built specifically so it could survive inside the beam. It would have been very easy for Gibbs to assume the bomb would not have been deactivated.
- This further pointed out in the pilot as Gibbs reminds Palmer, his brains were the secret to their former success. Thus without him they can't win.
- Dating Catwoman: Inverted with Gibbs as the bad guy and Jodi as the good guy. Turned out to be a plot to get Jodi arrested and Titan Maximum decommissioned.
- Deadpan Snarker: Formerly Gibbs, now he's more of a Smug Snake.
- Deconstructive Parody of the Five-Man Band Super Robot genre as typified by Voltron.
- Decoy Protagonist: The promos made it look like that Spud and Gibbs were part of the cast.
- Did I Just Say That Out Loud??: Sasha does this in front of Jodi and her grandmother while remembering how she gave a teacher a blow job for a good grade.
- Distracted by the Sexy: Willie by Sasha.
- Downer Ending: In the season/series finale, Mercury gets to experience kissing its sister, which is the fucking sun!
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: Jodi had one while she was in the running to be the right arm of Titan Maximum. The word "scum" is somewhere in all but one of his lines.
- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Despite her being a constant annoyance, Gibbs will not let Clare kill his grandmother. Averted at another point, since his grandmother is still on Mercury when he destroys the heat shield.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Sasha is by no means a saint, but she is the most furious at Gibbs for his betrayal, going into a curse-riddled rant when she sees him.
- Everything's Better with Monkeys: Albeit an extremely creepy one. Word of God on the DVD Commentary admits this is the reason he's there.
- If anything, the silence makes him even funnier.
- Eyepatch of Power: Gibbs. Lampshaded by Jodi, who says the eyepatch is sexy.
- Expy: The Peeper is a clear parody of Marvel's The Watcher.
- Face-Heel Turn: Gibbs, though with teammates like his you can't blame him. Palmer actually abandoned him in the middle of a battle rather than miss a date with a hot chick. Later Troy, who's angry that his father left his younger (more competent) sister in charge of their family's megacorporation instead of him.
- Faux Affably Evil: Gibbs.Gibbs: Oh, ok. Well I guess I lose then. Oh, wait... [presses robot control button with middle finger]
- Fallen Hero: Gibbs
- Five-Man Band:
- The Hero: Palmer. Post-Face-Heel Turn Gibbs claims that he was the true hero, since he came up with all the plans and that Palmer's just a glory-hogging prick. Knowing Palmer, this is no doubt completely true.
- The Lancer: Gibbs, Sasha.
- The Big Guy: Spud, Sasha (who's the most aggressive and has a bit of an Ax-Crazy bent).
- The Smart Guy: Gibbs again, Willie.
- The Chick: Jodi.
- The Heart: Originally, Spud (arguably); Willie seems to be verging on this.
- The Sixth Ranger/Team Pet: Leon
- Flipping the Bird: Gibbs does this to the point of a conditioned response.
- Foil: Cool, collected and methodical Gibbs is a stark contrast to the fly by the seat of your pants style that Palmer uses.
- From the original team, Gibbs was the Token Evil Teammate, whereas Spud was The Heart. Their Establishing Character Moment is Spud saying "I just wanna say that I love you guys!" to break up a fight, which gets a big "Awwwwwww" from Palmer, Jodi and Sasha, while Gibbs groans out "Fat dumbass." To further drive the point home, Gibbs was easily the most valuable man on the team, which is why the tolerated his personality, while Spud was only a mediocre pilot that they kept around because they just enjoyed his company.
- Foreign Language Theme: The end song is in Japanese as a tribute to the shows that inspired Titan Maximum, specifically the Teen Titans theme by Puffy Ami Yumi.
- For the Evulz: Why Gibbs wants to take over the solar system, at least on the surface. He hints at having more altruistic reasons to Jodi.
- The Fun in Funeral: The DVD comes with a mini comic about Spud's funeral — Palmer gives a eulogy mostly about his own sexual conquests and interrupts Gibbs' eulogy to generally brag about how cool he is. He and Gibbs start tussling and accidentally knock over the casket, causing the body to fall out.
- Glad I Thought of It: Palmer - Inverted when he comes up with a bad idea and Willie starts to suggest a better one, he tells him that he better not steal his idea; but then played straight immediately afterwards as he immediately starts claiming he thought of the better idea first.
- Goshdang It To Heck: Jodi. "Holy crow!"
- Gratuitous Japanese: The ending song.
- Grease Monkey: Leon.
- Groin Attack:
- Sasha's preferred (and only) method of attack. Subverted in the third episode, where the monster does not have genitals. It only works after they hit it there so hard their arm goes all the way up into its chest and then they rip its heart out. In the following episode, she laments the monster not having a crotch. She also laments Titan Megamum's crotch being shielded. Takes it Up to Eleven in the following episode, where she fights four guys using nothing but groin attacks.
- Jodi gets on the action, too, especially when fighting Gibbs in the first season finale.
- Practically happens to Gibbs every time he takes a "Dramatic Pose"
- When piloting Titan Megamum, he lifts up the atomic bomb in a dramatic pose for the newspapers. Cue Titan Maximum kicking it in the groin from behind, the sound of a photographic flashbulb showing a newspaper of that precise moment.
- Hannibal Lecture: Gibbs.
- Harmless Freezing: Completely averted when a scientist is hit by a freeze ray, and even after getting some of the ice off of himself with steam he still suffers from horribly debilitating frostbite (to which he is almost indifferent).
- Hero with Bad Publicity: Titan Force Five, at least after Gibbs became evil. Before that, they were rather well liked despite some embarrassing public displays of drunkenness.
- Actually, they were still well liked afterwards, because they were directly opposing Gibbs. It was only when their incompetence became apparent that people started to turn against them, but even then...
- Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Sasha seems to be approaching this, showing signs of being Ax-Crazy and an über-Alpha Bitch. An good example would her being able to defeat a robot by punching through its crotch to reach its heart. Perhaps best summarized in her establishing character moment in her introduction in the first episode, where she saves a man's life from falling debris by kicking him in the crotch to get him out of the way. Palmer could also be seen as this. Their only saving grace is opposing Gibbs plans.
- Hey, It's That Voice!:
- Lando is Admiral Bitchface.
- H. Jon Benjamin was that guy who trained Jodi in arm wrestling and Frank Freakin' Welker was the anchorman from the last episode.
- Joseph Gribble is Palmer, Chris Griffin is Gibbs, Tifa is Jodi, and Helo is Troy.
- In fact, anybody who's a fan of Robot Chicken in general will recognize a voice from there in at least one or two episodes. Abraham Benrubi (who voiced William Shatner on RC) appears in a TM episode, for instance. And Red Forman is the Mercury Commander in episodes 8 and 9. Plus, Dan "Skeletor" Milano plays Willie.
- The Mercury Militia leader is Red Forman.
- Hidden Depths: Believe it or not Gibbs, despite his dislike for his teammates, he was willing to go Spud funeral and was outraged when Palmer gives his eulogy mostly about his own sexual conquests, and in Gibbs own eulogy he was willing to admit that Spud had courage.
- Hollywood Tone-Deaf: Sasha."Hey, Sasha? is there any connection between your poor album sales and the fact that it sucks?"
Eden Espinosa: But we had to do several takes because they [Seth Green, Tom Root and Matt Senreich] were like, "Yeah, Eden, it still sounds too good. It sounds like you're singing good."
- This gets even funnier once you realise that Sasha is voiced by Eden Espinosa, who is known for playing Elphaba in Wicked. After all, while singing badly requires no talent, singing horribly usually requires a lot.
- Home Porn Movie: Gibbs makes one of himself and Jodi during their tryst on Diode, then releases it while Jodi is visiting her grandmother.Gibbs on tape: Look at me; I'm a newspaper-face! Does this turn you on?
- Hot-Blooded: Palmer. At least in this, he fits the mold of a Super Robot lead man.
- Humongous Mecha: It's time to form...Titan Force Five: Titan Maximum!
- Hypocritical Humor: Many, many examples:
- After President Caylo insists that Titan Force Five is a team to Gibbs:Palmer: [knocks his teammates aside] Make way for the awesome train. Chuga chuga, chuga chuga, awesome!
Willie: Its armor is too strong.
Palmer: [after being repelled by the monster] Damnit, people, start acting like a team!
- Sasha tries to call Troy on his robot's name:Sasha: Titan Megamum? "Megamum" isn't even a word.
Troy: Neither is "vaginacillin", but that didn't stop you from using it as the title for your third album. [shudders] Or your fragrance line.
- Moments later, when the question of Mars breaking its treaty with Titan comes up:Willie: Wait wait wait, Hammerschmiddtt Motors was barred from building war machines after the Mars/Titan peace treaty.
Palmer: Ah ha, you're breaking interplanetary law, ya buttplug.
Mercury General: So are you!
- After President Caylo insists that Titan Force Five is a team to Gibbs:
- Idiot Hero: Palmer and Sasha both.
- The whole team really, if only because Palmer and Sasha drag them down.
- I Lied:Prime Minister: [After giving up codes Gibbs needs and those at the party find out] What?! We voted, show of hands. [whispers] It was this or the volcano, you fools.
Gibbs: Ooo, yeah, about that... it's actually gonna be this and the volcano, I'm afraid, so... double cross, enjoy. [Presses a button to have the bot drop them in.]
- Impossible Shadow Puppets: "Bunny, horsey, ducky, ten speed bike, Eddie Van Halen, Titanic, Titanic sinking, scene from Titanic where Leo drew Kate."
- Insult Backfire: Sasha gives a self-satisfied grin when Palmer calls her a "huge raging bitch" right after noting that "the only person who could hump the starch out of [Jodi's] shorts is a murderous psychopath." This leads Jodi to have an only sane woman moment.
- Jerk Ass: pretty much everyone except Willie, Jodi, Leon, and Spud. Palmer occasionally shifts to being a Jerk with a Heart of Gold, but it's fairly rare.
- Jerk Jock: Palmer.
- Jumped at the Call: Willie
- Last Name Basis: Everybody calls Palmer by his last name, even his grandparents. Willie even called his grandpa on it, which is handwaved as Palmer "making the name his own."
- Little Miss Badass: Clare.
- Legal Jailbait: Clare. When Jodi finds out she was the one filming her when she slept with Gibbs, she's notably distressed. Gibb's claims it's okay because Clare's actually 21. Jodi disagrees.
- Metaphorgotten: "It'll be like kissing your sister! If your sister was the fucking sun!"
- Misfit Mobilization Moment: Happens a few times, particularly in the season finale. Interestingly, it tends to happen much more often when Titan Force Five has to fight off bad guys outside of their cockpits.
- Monster of the Week
- Mook Chivalry: Subverted and lampshaded. Palmer complains that he can't hit more than one mook at a time when they decide to surround him and Sasha from all sides.
- Ms. Fanservice: Sasha, and she knows it.
- Jodi to a fair extent, having been the victim of sexual harassment far more than she'd care to admit.
- Never My Fault: "Look what you did, Jodi."
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Possible variant - nice job breaking your lancer, hero! Titan Maximum also appears to play this straight on a small scale fairly often.
- The first season ends with them failing to stop Gibbs from completely frying Mercury.
- "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: In the first season finale, Willie goes on about how Clare's sword is made of "Aggregated diamond nanorods; hyperdiamond! The hardest substance there is!" Cue the freeze frame and the disclaimer informing that ADNR's are a real substance, and are every bit as hard as advertised. We don't yet know of anything harder.
- Not What It Looks Like: Willie's grandparents try this when the sex tape of Gibbs and Jodi.Grandmother Palmer: They...they're just wrestling, Willie.
Grandfather Palmer: Why don't we wrestle like that?
Willie: If they're wrestling, he's really, really trying to tap out.
Palmer: ...with his balls.
- Older Than They Look: The Adult Swim website says that Willie is 19, but he sure doesn't look it. There's also Clare, who looks to be about 8 or so, but according to Gibbs is actually 21.
- This likely an intentional Take That to Anime in general, where 15 can mean you look 24, or 10 means having the figure of an 18 year old school girl.
- Only One Name: Palmer.
- Only Sane Man: Admiral Bitchface. Gibbs has this to some extent as well.
- Only Six Faces: There's a number of generic head sculpts for minor characters — most obviously, Spud's head, which is shared by the Jester Corpsman and the Prime Minister of Mars among others.
- Overly Long Gag: Spud's 50-seconds-long death-fall in the pilot.
- It was 400 stories; it takes a while to fall that far.
- Pet the Dog: Palmer has many MANY failings and is a total ass to his team, past and present. However, he refuses to hand over his brother to be sodomized by some rednecks to save his own skin. Nice to know the guy has a shred of brotherly love. He also tried and largely failed to hide being upset about Jodi being arrested by the authorities on Titan for treason.
- Planet of Hats:
- Eris is a redneck planet.
- Mercury is essentially Planet Florida, and as such is entirely populated by old people.
- Neptune is a gigantic winter resort, with a lone steam-in-a-can production facility
- The President's Daughter: Sasha.
- Psycho Ex Boyfriend: Jodi used to date Gibbs back when he was The Lancer and not Super King Big-Nuts. And kind of still is.
- Plucky Comic Relief: Subverted and invoked with the Jester Corpsman.
- Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: After Willie makes a bad try at bantering.Palmer: Don't. Banter. Ever. No!
- Reality Ensues: Does Jodi get a slap on the wrist for her "meeting" with Gibbs? Nope she is arrested for treason.
- Really Gets Around: Sasha, to put it lightly.
- Rebellious Princess: Sasha.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Palmer and Gibbs.
- Also Palmer and Sasha (hot-blooded) to Jodi and Willie (cool and collected), according to the lampshading in the third episode. "I have no opinion on the monkey."
- Rich Bitch: Sasha.
- Screwed by the Network: More like, Screwed By The Creator. Seth Green willfully cancelled a hit show, so he could continue work on his Cash Cow Franchise, Robot Chicken.
- Shout-Out: The entire series is an obvious Shout Out to Voltron, but there are a few other less obvious ones as well.
- When Sasha first enters the garage, her theme music is clearly inspired by Justin Timberlake's song "Sexy Back".
- Palmer's bike resembles that of Kaneda in AKIRA.
- When the space marines are attacked by Clare in the hangar, the camera switches to a first-person perspective almost exactly like that of Doom.
- All while she's running in and out of shadows like the creatures from Aliens.
- Episode 7 is entitled "Megamum Overdrive."
- Sibling Yin-Yang: Palmer and Willie.
- Silent Bob: Leon.
- Smug Snake: Gibbs, after his Face-Heel Turn.
- Sophisticated as Hell: Gibbs' shtick. He attempts to be suave and magnificent, but this is sharply contrasted by his cruder tendencies and love of flipping people off.
- Left the Background Music On: Sasha's entrance at the Titan Force Five hangar.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Cute assassin Clare (not Claire), likely named after Seth Green's wife, actress Clare Grant.
- Stepford Smiler: Jodi's showing symptoms of being the "hidden sadness" variety. And the "hidden homicidal madness" variety.
- Stylistic Suck: Sasha's miserable excuse of a music career.
- Take Our Word for It: "Oh my God! Titan Maximum is raping the Statue of Unity!"
- "Sir, your daughter is mimicking fellatio on ..."
- Later: "Sir, you daughter is mimicking fellatio on two ..."
- "Sir, your daughter is mimicking fellatio on ..."
- Talk to the Fist: Played with. Gibbs is trying to make his ransom demands and Palmer smashes the robot transmitting his signal. Gibbs just keeps taking over more robots until he finishes.
- The Stoic: Leon.
- Ted Baxter: Palmer and Sasha.
- This Is Gonna Suck: All over the place:
- The Martian carrier commander has two in the span of two minutes: "Fuck me in the ass." when Titan Force Five shows up and "Aw, mom's gonna get some bad news..." right before the carrier is destroyed by Titan Maximum.
- Another one from a rather unfortunate victim of Gibbs' robot, who was cleaning a statue in front of an "Aviation Disaster Museum" as a damaged Redshirt Air Force plane augers in: "Oh this is ironic as hell!"
- In the last episode of the first season, Sasha says, "In retrospect, we really dropped the ball on this one."
- Followed by "Look what you DID, Jodi."
- Token Evil Teammate: Before he turned on Titan Force Five, Gibbs obviously loathed most of his team.
- Too Dumb to Live: Sasha. When Willie brings out a laser gun to fire at the Monster of the Week, her first instinct is to throw it at said monster. She misses and asks Willie for another ("But I only made one!"). When the monster picks the gun up later, she assumes it's going to do the same thing. It doesn't. Massive Damage ensues.
- Too Much Information: President Caylo does not want to know about all the weird sexual stuff his daughter Sasha is up to in the public spotlight.
- Transformation Sequence: Done three times in the first two episodes, then lampshaded later on by onlookers ("Well, this transformation sequence always takes about 30 seconds.") without actually showing it.
- The Unfavorite: Willie.
- Unusual Euphemism: Palmer occasionally, though "Shrinky Dinks!" stands out a bit. As well as "Ass crackers!"
- Villain with Good Publicity: Troy Hammerschmidtt
- Violation of Common Sense: After Titan Maximum kicks Titan Megamum while it's holding a bomb.Gibbs: You idiotic shitbuckets! I was holding a freaking nuke!
- When All You Have Is a Hammer: All weapons are offline... Palmer's response? "Then we'll do what we always do: PUNCH THE FUCK OUT OF IT!"
- Also, Sasha: "How many times do I have to tell you? Punch it in the crotch!" She then proceeds to rip the monster's heart out through its crotch.
- "Get with the program, Willie! Half-assed is our way of life!"
- "It's like I know all the combos in the game but he just keeps hitting the A button!"
- "Face punch!"
- Look what you did, Jodi…Oh shut up Sasha.
