* AssPull: Batman [[spoiler:surviving the Earth becoming crushed]] in ''How The Avengers: Age of Ultron Should Have Ended'', and [[spoiler:shrinking]] in ''How Ant-Man Should Have Ended'', with literally no explanation other than, "Because I'm Batman!" Of course, [[LampshadeHanging Superman already has this reaction]], and it's [[RuleOfFunny completely on purpose]].
* BaseBreakingCharacter: Either HISHE'S Batman is CrazyAwesome personified or an obnoxious individual with a stale catchphrase.
* BetterThanCanon:
** Their parody of the Terminator[=/=]Back to the Future crossover is generally considered much better than the later Terminator films and especially ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'' which had a very similar premise.
** The HISHE Review of ''Film/JusticeLeague2017'' has a brief sequence, complete with pre-rendering, storyboards about how they believed ''Justice League'' would have turned out based on the {{Foreshadowing}} in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' and many of the comments believe that their take [[spoiler:i.e. a Superman CameBackWrong being co-opted by Steppenwolf and fighting the League before Lois brings him back, was a more interesting film than what actually got made, even if the producers make it clear that they weren't too keen on that direction, since it relied on "Evil!Superman".]]
** There's a crowd that feel that the HISHE's rendition of The Last Jedi is better than the actual film, especially since Admiral Ackbar plays a greater role in some major plot points [[spoiler:rather than be anticlimactically killed off when the bridge explodes and being replaced by Admiral Holdo, going so far as to perform her iconic Heroic Sacrifice instead and using his memetic line in the process]] and addressing idiot plot moments, notably [[spoiler:Rose and Finn land the ship in the tall grass rather than on the beach so they don't get arrested for illegal parking]]. Lastly, [[spoiler: the final battle has Luke and Rey actually battling and curb-stomping the AT-ATs by having Luke stopping their blasts and striking them back instead of Luke simply distracting Kylo Ren and the First Order by sending a force projection.]]
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: One of the endings to ''Film/{{Logan}}'' is a musical number showing the titular character joining the rest of the X-Men in the afterlife. Even the end credits acknowledged how odd it was.
* BrokenBase:
** 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.
** The episode they did for ''Film/{{Logan}}''. Some consider it a well-done, touching tribute to the film and Creator/HughJackman's career as Wolverine while others felt the whole ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' parody was a BigLippedAlligatorMoment and the episode didn't have enough humor. Then there are those who felt the [[spoiler: Deadpool cameo ]] was either the best part of the video, or a random gag that ruined what was a good tribute to Creator/HughJackman's portrayal as Wolverine.
** Some people may feel that HISHE is quite biased in favor of the detractors of some highly divisive films, such as the [[TakeThat numerous jabs]] at the ''Star Wars'' prequels (including ''The Last Jedi'', which is mostly full of criticizing IdiotPlot moments) and ''Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull''.
* CreatorsPet: Daniel Baxter is generally a bigger fan of ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' than ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' and in his shorts, he generally shows Superman at best as a SmugSuper and straight man, while Batman is an especially obnoxious and narcissistic take on the character.
* CrossesTheLineTwice:
** 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 ''Film/Deadpool2016'' getting killed by getting crushed. Darkly funny. Vanessa gets crushed by ''every piece of rubble from the explosion.'' HYSTERICAL.
** The Turtles' murder of Krang by using their weapons is morally questionable. But when Michelangelo suddenly '''whips out a random pistol out of nowhere and unloads all of its bullets''' into Krang, that's when it's hilarious.
* EarWorm:
** "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 [[Film/TheHungerGames Peeta]] could create one of these?
---> Camo, camo, camouflage! Camo, camo, camouflage! Painting camo, camo, camouflage! Pa-aaa-inting camo-ooo-uflage!
** [[WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie Everything]] Is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOQxxNYSHR0&t=2m29s 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, [[spoiler: 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..."''
** "Watch out! Here comes my arrow!"
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Unsurprisingly, Wonder Woman is already wildly popular due to being the OnlySaneMan 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.
* EsotericHappyEnding: One of the endings in ''How Captain America: Civil War Should Have Ended'' has the fight with Iron Man against Captain America and Bucky averted, and the ending plays things as though everything is happy and Zemo's plans are thwarted. This completely ignores that the heroes who sided with Captain America are still fugitives just like in the movie.
* FridgeBrilliance: At one point in the "Bat Blood" video, Batman notes that "Band-Aids don't fix [[{{ItMakesSenseInContext}} building holes]]". This may come across to some people as being a bit of a weird thing to say, but this is ''[[{{CrazyPrepared}} Batman]]'' who's saying it. If anyone would know if you could fix major structural damage with Band-Aids, it would be him.
* FridgeHorror: ''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...
* FunnyAneurysmMoment:
** In ''The Amazing Spider-Man'', Batman and Superman laugh at Spidey for his "But those are the best kind" line [[spoiler: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, [[spoiler:when Gwen dies as a consequence of this promise being broken.]]
** The ''Iron Man 3'' video has Superman prepare for ''Man of Steel'' by removing his UnderwearOfPower, 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
** In ''Batman v. Superman'', the part of the spoof where Flash comes back and warns Batman about "Rotten Tomatoes everywhere" becomes this when ''Film/JusticeLeague2017'' came out, got a worse reception and critical drubbing than the previous film.
** In their ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' spoof, the scene where [[spoiler: Luke pops up before Kylo can kill Han and skewers him]] becomes somewhat cringeworthy after ''Film/TheLastJedi'' came out, where we learn that [[spoiler: Luke almost did this in ''canon'' because he feared the darkness within Kylo.]]
* HarsherInHindsight:
** 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". ''Series/AgentCarter'' 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 [[spoiler:Han Solo dying]], which becomes harsher after the events of ''Film/TheForceAwakens''.
** The tenth episode of the ''Superhero Café'' predicted the biggest spoiler for ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' that [[spoiler: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.
** In ''A New Hope'', Dodonna angrily calls out Leia for leading the Empire to the Yavin base, which then gets destroyed by the Death Star. Shortly after the release of the Special Edition, Carrie Fisher suffered a massive heart attack and passed away.
** In ''Return of the Jedi'', during the Rebel Briefing scene, one of the rebel soldiers bitterly comments that "all we rebels ever do is die to accomplish things...except for the A-Team (the saga's heroes) over there". Comes ''Film/RogueOne'', a story about a group of rebel soldiers who would've been nothing more than side characters in the main films, [[spoiler: who all died in a grueling battle to steal the Death Star's plan, and the only people who survived are the major characters who are guaranteed to make it to other films, aka the 'A-Team' heroes.]]
*** It crosses into HeartwarmingInHindsight as in their own take on ''Rogue One'' [[spoiler:EverybodyLives]].
* HilariousInHindsight:
** 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 GenreBlindness takes effect in ''Iron Man 2'' when dealing with Whiplash, and the conversation Superman has with Iron Man about [[spoiler: killing your villains]] is even funnier after ''Film/ManOfSteel'' came along.
** [[Creator/AndrewGarfield "I am not a joke!]] [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan 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 ComicBook/LexLuthor!''.
** Iron Man objected to Superman comparing Siri to JARVIS, but now JARVIS also has an [=iPhone=] app.
** How ''Film/{{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, ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' ends basically that way.
** ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' having Nick Fury quote ''Film/PulpFiction'' is even funnier after ''Captain America: The Winter Soldier'' [[spoiler:showed the Ezekiel 25:17 quote on his [[FakingTheDead "grave"]].]]
** In the "thanks for watching" section", Clark is floating in the sea with the appearance of Cominbook/{{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 ''Film/{{Justice League|2017}}'' movie in which Aquaman will appear.
** The happy ending epilogue for ''How Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2 Should Have Ended'' jokes that Sony made a deal with Disney so Spider-Man could appear in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. 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. ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'' did exactly that.
** A parody music video with Batman singing a version Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" called "Bat Blood", before the announcement of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBadBlood''.
** At the end of the "Bat Blood" video, Batman hints that he and Music/TaylorSwift had a thing going, which Superman doesn't buy at all. Swift would later date [[Creator/TomHiddleston 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 DisneyDeath. Flash forward to ''Batman v Superman'', [[spoiler: which ends with Superman himself "dying" to stop Doomsday.]]
** All of Batman's jabs at Superman for killing in ''Film/ManOfSteel'' comes back to bite him after ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice.''
** During the episode of "How ''Film/Deadpool2016'' Should Have Ended", Batman basically stated to Deadpool that killing your enemies is wrong. Come to ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', Batman was shown to have zero problems with using lethal force to defeat his enemies. The "How ''Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'' Should Have Ended" episode had Deadpool lampshades this and gives Batman an IronicEcho about him killing his enemies.
** ''How Film/XMenApocalypse Should have Ended'' leads up to Magneto learning that Quicksilver was his son, and gushing about it to everybody, even asking Xavier "Charles, do YOU have a son?!" Xavier replies "[[Series/Legion2017 Not at this time...]]"
** ''How Film/TheAvengersAgeOfUltron Should Have Ended'' has Spider-Man show up to stop the train, and Magneto arrive to defeat Ultron and his robotic army, before pointing out that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are his children and that they are "mutants". In 2015, Marvel made a deal with Sony for Spider-Man to appear in the MCU, and the rights to the X-Men eventually reverted to Marvel in December 2017.
** How [[Film/GuardiansoftheGalaxy Guardians of the Galaxy]] Should Have Ended shows Peter Quill having traded in his Walkman for an iPod prior to meeting Batman and Superman at the Super Cafe. In [[Film/GuardiansoftheGalaxyVol2 Guardian's of the Galaxy Vol. 2]], after said Walkman [[spoiler:gets destroyed by his father]] he replaces it with a Zune, Microsoft's short-lived competitor to the iPod during the last few years of the [[TurnoftheMillennium Turn of the Millennium]].
* HoYay: The Super Café segments involving Superman and Batman. Indeed in the Amazing Spiderman 2 parody, [[spoiler: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.]]
* MST3KMantra: Though the primary purpose of the series is to point out FridgeLogic, it's not above ignoring certain facts about the parodied series and creating its own FridgeLogic for the sake of a joke.
* RootingForTheEmpire: Quite a few were rooting for the villains against Batman in the Boss Battle episode for Villain Pub. It helps that Hishe!Batman is an incredibly obnoxious fool most of the time, and the video specifically parodies and makes fun of his "Bat-God" CrazyPrepared reputation. The Emperor getting the best of Batman is even a moment of awesome in its own right.
* {{Sequelitis}}: General opinion of ''[[WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie 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''.
* SpoiledByTheFormat: "How ''The Jungle Book'' Should Have Ended" credits Jon Bailey as Kaa before Kaa shows up in TheStinger. [[spoiler:Averted for Winnie the Pooh.]]
* {{Squick}}: Grendel's mother in ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf|2007}}'', um, ''bubbles'' from a wrong location.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Any time you hear an iconic theme in this series it won't sound ''exactly'' like the original, because of copyright rules.
* TakeThatScrappy:
** With one for ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', 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 [[spoiler: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 Film/DCExtendedUniverse suddenly gets really awkward when Green Lantern shows up.
** Wonder Woman eventually calls out Batman for using his "Because I'm Batman!" schtick far too many times rather vehemently in her own short. "IT'S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT YOU BRUCE!"
** Holdo is incredibly hated in ''Film/TheLastJedi'' due to withholding information from the rebels for no reason aside to be an arrogant bitch and is overall, seen as an incompetent leader who caused the deaths hundreds of rebels due to her stupidity, so fans rejoice when Admiral Ackbar is replaced as the temporary leader instead and actually tells the rebels of Leia's intentions while simultaneously shoving Holdo aside and ignored by the rest of the cast.
* UncannyValley: Purposely done to baby Renessmee in ''Breaking Dawn Part 2'', mocking the use of CGI in the actual movies.
** Tobey Maguire in ''How Spider-Man: Homecoming Should Have Ended''. While his face has been given an updated model, his Spider-Man suit hasn't. As such, Maguire looks off compared to Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland.
* UnexpectedCharacter: When talking about the events of ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'', Creator/TomHolland has a discussion with Creator/AndrewGarfield and Creator/TobeyMaguire, the previous Spider-Men. Holland is completely sure that it was unfortunate for them, but at least ''he'' won't be replaced. And then [[spoiler:ComicBook/MilesMorales]] says "Don't be so sure of that!"[[note]]Miles Morales was introduced in the ComicBook/UltimateMarvel imprint, and became Spider-Man after the death of Peter Parker. His uncle Aaron Davis has appeared in the film, and called him by phone, so his existence in the MCU is confirmed.[[/note]]
