Western Animation: The Prince Of Atlantis
A short-lived BBC CGI cartoon about an Atlantean prince named Akata who, along with his friends of both the sea creature and human variety, defended the oceans and his Atlantean secrets from the evil B.I.G. corporation.
The Prince of Atlantis provides examples of the following tropes:
- Adult Fear: Being unable to save a young teenager after he's stung by a new species of sea creature, for which's venom there is no antidote.
- Aerith and Bob: Dorothy, Jim, Jaurice and Momo.
- Atlantis: Obviously. This one being of the sunken variety.
- Barbie Doll Anatomy: All the Atlanteans have this since they don't wear clothes. Which raises some, ahem, interesting questions about how they continue their species...
- Computer Generated Images: Half of the show was done like this and the rest was traditionally animated.
- Cool and Unusual Punishment: After screwing up royally, Luke is demoted to a hamburger cook. Something he finds beyond humiliating.
- Creepy Monotone: When Akata is brainwashed and controlled by Eva he talks like this.
- Cute but Cacophonic: Oya had an extremely high-pitched voice that could get difficult to listen to after awhile.
- Hidden Depths: In one episode, Alfred Bazooka, who up until then hadn't seemed much deeper than your standard one half of Those Two Bad Guys, stops Eva killing Jaurice and Jim because earlier they'd saved his life.
- Karma Houdini: Dr. Droog is never arrested and doesn't suffer any real punishment save for being sucked into the sea with his own giant vacuum.
- Oh, Crap: Many times by many characters throughout the series.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Akata is very hands-on in the defence of his kingdom.
- Save the Villain: Jaurice and Jim rescue Alfred after he's caught by Dagon. Lampshaded by Jaurice:Jaurice: I can't believe I'm rescuing this thug...
- Scenery Porn: Some of the oceanscapes are quite beautiful to look at.
- Swallowed Whole: Happens to Akata, Dorothy and Oya in 'The Fountain of Life' when they are all sucked into a huge clam. Subverted in that it was just a giant vacuum built to look like a clam to harvest sea creatures and drain them of their life force.
- Too Dumb to Live: Almost happens literally when Luke gives Alfred ten times too much of a highly dangerous substance when they were trying to make a bomb and it almost blows them both to kingdom come.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Akata can barely survive any time at all out of water.
