YMMV: asdfmovie
  • Angst? What Angst?:
    • A talking hamburger is pretty calm about the fact that it used to be a cow.
    • And Mr. Muffin is so cheerful about dying.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Did the student who flunked out of Standing Up School really fail at standing up? Or was he simply trying to do The Flop?
    • Did the cow-pretending-to-be-a-man kill all the orphans? Or is he just a bystander and it's Dissonant Serenity in action?
  • Crosses the Line Twice:
    • "Joey, did you eat my sandwich?" "I am your sandwich." *forces himself down his friend's throat*
    • "Honey, why is the baby on fire?" "BUY ME MORE JEWELRY!"
    • "Hey guys, check out my new camera!" *BANG!* Oh, wait, this isn't a camera."
    • "Goodbye world!" "Okay Jim, see you around. Hey, where are you going cause *gunshot* Oh! That's not what I thought he meant at all!"
    • "I want to be a pie!" *cut to kid in the oven* "Billy, nooo!"
    • "When I grow up, I want to go to the moon!" "Why wait?" *kicks girl into outer space*
    • "Hey kid, you can't skate here!" "You can't tell me what to do-" *blows up in a minefield*
    • "Wanna play video games?" "Nah, man, you always beat me!" *repeated punches* "TELL NO ONE!"
    • Only Tom Ska can make the many deaths (Most of them alarmingly from suicide) in episode 7 funny.
  • Ear Worm:
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The Potato, the "I Like Trains" Kid, the Mine Turtle, and Mr. Muffin.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: In THE TWENTY MINUTE ASDFMOVIE, an angry potato tells the "I like trains" kid, "I am an angry potato and I hope you get cancer!" Edd Gould, who voiced the trains kid, died of cancer a year later. Particularly Tempting Fate, considering he had recovered from it a year earlier.
    • The seventh asdfmovie, while still hilarious, has a lot more jokes about death and suicide than previous episodes. A month after it was released, the creator admitted he had been suffering from depression and that it may have been subconsciously influencing those jokes, though luckily he emphatically denied wanting to commit suicide.
  • Memetic Badass: The "I Like Trains" kid.
  • Memetic Mutation: More or less everything.
    • 'Well, I stole your face!' seems to be the most prominent example of this.
    • 'Everybody do the flop!' from the sixth movie.
    • There's something on your face! *punch* It was pain!
    • "I baked you a pie!" "Oh boy, what flavor?" "[insert random object here] FLAVOR."
    • "Suddenly, pineapples."
  • This Is Your Premise on Drugs: The Ritalin'd movie.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Except when it was made on drugs. Ritalin, that is.
