YMMV / How It Should Have Ended

  • Ass Pull: Batman surviving the Earth becoming crushed in How The Avengers: Age of Ultron Should Have Ended, and shrinking in How Ant-Man Should Have Ended, with literally no explanation other than, "Because I'm Batman!" Of course, Superman already has this reaction.
  • Broken Base:
    • It can easily be found to divide fans due to how their HISHE episodes are done. Several claimed that HISHE ruined their enjoyment of several movies.
    • "Because I'm Batman!" is either still absolutely funny after all these years, or it has gone on for too long, and become an annoyance. It's even lampshaded by Superman, who has become increasingly exasperated by the gag, and Batman, who doesn't seem to understand why.
  • Crosses the Line Twice:
    • Mowgli getting eaten shouldn't be funny. It then gets funny when everyone tells Bagheera that he murdered a child while singing about how wolves eat babies.
    • Vanessa in Deadpool getting killed by getting crushed. Darkly funny. Vanessa gets crushed by every piece of rubble from the explosion. HYSTERICAL
  • Ear Worm:
    • "Spider-Man! He's the man with a plan!"
    • "I'm just a lonely zombie / I'm just a lonely zombie / In this hallway / Wishing I could eat some brains / Some brains"
    • Lapidus' theme.
    • Who knew Peeta could create one of these?
      Camo, camo, camouflage! Camo, camo, camouflage! Painting camo, camo, camouflage! Pa-aaa-inting camo-ooo-uflage!
    • Everything Is Batmaaaan
    • In-Universe, Frozen's "Let It Go" (or the copyright-safe rewritten version) is this to The Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters. Many years after attending, many heroines are singing it together, and sheepishly stop when Wolverine enters, only for him to join in as well.
    • "If I could save time in bottles of time, then I could save all of the time..."
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Unsurprisingly, Wonder Woman is already wildly popular due to being the Only Sane Man and her happiness at getting to attend the Cafe. At least a few fans found themselves just as attracted to her HISHE counterpart as her film counterpart, and then there's her Adorkable dancing. Some fans are even clamoring for her to join Batman and Superman as a regular.
  • Fridge Horror: How Back to the Future Part II Should Have Started provides a rare example not lampshaded by anyone in-universe. Doc's claim that giving Marty vague hints about life in 2015 could alter it drastically might make one wonder if he should claim responsibility for Princess Diana's failure to become queen of England (negating a prediction of the USA Today paper Doc that purchased on October 22, 2015). Then again, he doesn't name-drop her when he describes some of the events becoming undone...
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • In The Amazing Spider-Man, Batman and Superman laugh at Spidey for his "But those are the best kind" line regarding breaking the promise he made to Captain Stacy to stay away from Gwen and continue dating her. This becomes inherently less funny in the sequel, when Gwen Stacy dies as a consequence of this promise being broken.
    • The Iron Man 3 video has Superman prepare for Man of Steel by removing his Underwear of Power, then flying out through the Super Café ceiling. The hole he leaves behind, and the others pointing out his lack of an apology for making it, now seem like unintentional foreshadowing of DCEU!Supes' disregard for property damage.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • In How Fast & Furious 6 Should Have Ended, everyone except The Rock and Vin Diesel dies against the tank. Including Paul Walker's character.
    • In How the Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer Should Have Ended, Ultron terrifyingly quoting Disney films prompts Black Widow to exclaim "You're ruining my childhood". Agent Carter revealed the Black Widow program used Disney films to teach the girls english, mixed with subliminal messages.
    • In How Star Trek Into Darkness Should Have Ended:
      • The comment on milking Leonard Nimoy for multiple sequels becomes harsher upon his death in February 2015.
      • The same HISHE also features Han Solo dying, which becomes harsher after the events of The Force Awakens.
    • The tenth episode of the Superhero Café predicted the biggest spoiler for The Force Awakens that Han dies eight months before to the movie's release.
    • Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man being happy that he's going to be in the MCU starts looking kind of sad when you realize that the Spider-Man for the MCU has been recast with Tom Holland.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Iron Man trying to justify the murder of Obadiah Stane by reminding Superman and Batman that if you throw a criminal in jail, he'll just swear revenge on you and break out, is a twofer in that this bit of Genre Blindness takes effect in Iron Man 2 when dealing with Whiplash, and the conversation Superman has with Iron Man about killing your villains is even funnier after Man of Steel came along.
    • "I am not a joke! I am Spider-Man!" And after the announcement that Jessie Eisenberg joined the cast of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the response to that is "yeah, well I'm Lex Luthor!''.
    • Iron Man objected to Superman comparing Siri to JARVIS, but now JARVIS also has an iPhone app.
    • How Thor should have ended? At that point when he got his powers back, and he had to return to Asgard to fight against Loki... Thor looks back at his hot girlfriend, and decides to leave all behind to stay with her. Besides the other surprises and differences in context, Thor: The Dark World ends basically that way.
    • The Avengers having Nick Fury quote Pulp Fiction is even funnier after Captain America: The Winter Soldier showed the Ezekiel 25:17 quote on his "grave".
    • In the "thanks for watching" section", Clark is floating in the sea with the appearance of Aquaman, whispering, "Justice League..." at the end. It was later confirmed that Aquaman was indeed the one who helped Clark after the oil derrick scene and there will be a Justice League movie in which Aquaman will appear.
    • The happy ending epilogue for How The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Should Have Ended jokes that Sony made a deal with Disney so Spider-Man could appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A few months later this actually happened.
    • How Terminator Should End suggests it's only a matter of time before machines wisen up and send a Terminator to kill Sarah Connor in her childhood. Terminator Genisys did exactly that.
    • A parody music video with Batman singing a version Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" called "Bat Blood", before the announcement of Batman Bad Blood.
    • At the end of the "Bat Blood" video, Batman hints that he and Taylor Swift had a thing going, which Superman doesn't buy at all. Swift would later date an actor known for playing a comic book character.
    • The Winter Soldier parody ended with Superman and Batman warning the Marvel heroes about their movies' overuse of the Disney Death. Flash forward to Batman v Superman, which ends with Superman himself "dying" to stop Doomsday.
    • All of Batman's jabs at Superman for killing in Man of Steel comes back to bite him after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
  • Ho Yay: The Super Café segments involving Superman and Batman. Indeed in the Amazing Spiderman 2 parody, a deranged Spider-Man extorts Superman to turn back time to bring Gwen to life by pointing a gun to Batman's head and threatening to kill him.
  • MST3K Mantra: Though the primary purpose of the series is to point out Fridge Logic, it's not above ignoring certain facts about the parodied series and creating its own Fridge Logic for the sake of a joke.
  • Sequelitis: General opinion of The LEGO HISHE 2 is that, while still funny in its own right, it isn't nearly as funny or creative as the first The LEGO HISHE.
  • Spoiled by the Format: "How The Jungle Book Should Have Ended" credits Jon Bailey as Kaa before Kaa shows up in The Stinger. Averted for Winnie the Pooh.
  • Squick: Grendel's mother in Beowulf (2007), um, bubbles from a wrong location.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: Any time you hear an iconic theme in this series it won't sound exactly like the original, because of copyright rules.
  • Take That, Scrappy!:
    • With one for The Phantom Menace, you could bet that something was going to happen to our "lovable" Jar Jar Binks. In fact, Jar Jar gets it in every HISHE for the prequels.
    • After Deadpool gets kicked out of the Villain Pub, he gets back at the patrons by seating his in name only X-Men Origins: Wolverine incarnation in his place. Everyone promptly runs away in disgust.
    • Superman and Batman inviting all the DC heroes to join the DC Extended Universe suddenly gets really awkward when Green Lantern shows up.
  • Uncanny Valley: Purposely done to baby Renessmee in Breaking Dawn Part 2, mocking the use of CGI in the actual movies.
