YMMV: The Frollo Show

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Is it Frollo's own fault he has so many enemies? Or is Frollo just unlucky enough to keep getting into these situations?
  • Angst? What Angst?: Frollo and Gaston find themselves in the Underworld for eternity? Oh well, time for some random shenanigans. Justified for Frollo, since he knows Death Is Cheap.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment:
  • Cargo Ship: Jafar seems to have this relationship with his staff as he falls into the Underworld..
  • Character Rerailment: Played menacingly straight, in a meta sense. As of Frollo Gets Flashed, Frollo starts becoming more and more of a Knight Templar, in line with his characterization in his source material. And as of Frollo Finally Does It it comes back to bite him in the ass. Thankfully, Ronald Mc Donald of all people gives him a Heel Realization.
  • Crazy Awesome: Tommy Wiseau, which may also tie in with Too Cool to Live.
  • Designated Villain: Hades counts since Frollo, who had once been his friend, had for no reason turned on him, broken his rurus and had Lefou shit on his face.
    • Let's not forget Konata who along with her friends was murdered and eaten by Bison and Guile in Leet Fighters. The revenge she seeks is completely justified (its just as reasonable as Uma Thurman's character from Kill Bill wanting revenge). Leet Fighters not only treats her character as a villain but plays her up entirely for laughs with her character getting killed every time she almost gets revenge. But that kind of dark humor is to be expected from chincherrinas.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Marco teasing Haruhi with a flying shoe might count as this, given how in the previous episode He almost killed her in an attack with it, and did end up killing her friend, Maussan.
  • Genius Bonus: In Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita, it's stated that the Nazis are attacking from the right and the Communists from the left. This could just be a coincidence. Or it could be a joke based on their positions on the political spectrum.
  • Growing the Beard: Around the time of Frollo Gets AIDS, the series starts getting a sense of continuity and becomes less of just a Youtube Poop. The creator of the series doesn't even consider the show to be Youtube Poop anymore.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Mephiles. Despite being a Troll who enjoys playing antics on people, deep inside, he's lonely and just wants to have friends.
  • Les Yay/Twincest: Stocking is her sister's 400th evil ex. Frollo gets a nosebleed from this.
  • Memetic Mutation: Frollo tries to enforce this trope with himself, attempting to be on Know Your Meme.
    • The Bros Pose is slowly reaching meme status, as chincherrinas encourages anyone to make their own poses. You can view the fan-made Bros Pose gallery here, but be warned; a few of them are not well-done.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • Batiatus crosses it when he brutally murders Ib in cold blood. Stocking was so disgusted that she killed him by her own hands. Viewers hope he ends in the Sea of Darkness.
    • Frollo himself crossed it in-universe when he shouted at and hit Madotsuki because she was too happy to use her emotion-based powers to find Wilford. The entire cast was caught completely off-guard when this happened, and everyone except for Gaston left him to rot alone in the desert for it.
  • Nausea Fuel: The food that Ronald McDonald gives Frollo to eat contains nasty worms inside, which Frollo accidentally eats and gains stomach pains.
  • Nightmare Fuel
    • Wilford Brimley attacking Panty and Stocking, and then transforming into a Giygas-like being.
      • Then there's his entire alternate dimension. Especially this thing. The music playing for the battle does not help.
    • Hans Frollo winds up surviving his fall to the Underworld and realizes that he has a chance to escape. However, black hands, later revealed to be the Hell Guards, grab him and he begins to rot.
    • Ronald McDonald is a combination of this and Paranoia Fuel. He's arguably the creepiest rendition of the character, by far.
    • Frollo's side of the story in the finale is one massive Mind Screw mixed with healthy doses of this trope... especially when he comes across warped versions of his friends who proceed to beat him up.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Parodied when the Jew Producer decides to replace Gaston on the Frollo Show with Ashton Kutcher after his death.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Many viewers consider that The Irate Gamer is a much more likeable character due to his friendship with Best Hercules and a rather touching death scene.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The opening to Leet Fighters 7 sounds similar to "Quatre Mains" (start at 0:30).
  • That One Boss: Ronald McDonald effortlessly dodges Frollo's bullets, knocks his gun right out of his hand...Ayumu is weak against clowns...and to top it all off, Gameshark is useless against him! Thankfully he had a Weaksauce Weakness... or has he?
  • Took a Level in Kindness: The main characters, Frollo, Gaston, Panty and Stocking, are debatably nicer in the show then their canon counterparts are. This is especially the case for Gaston.
  • Villain Decay: Played for Laughs with Hitler, who goes from a formidable threat in Frollo Reads Mein Kampf to a Harmless Villain in his next major appearance. He's back on top of his game in Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita.
  • The Woobie: Madotsuki, painfully so.
    • Ib also qualifies. Seeing her best friend impaled and then stomped on is enough to snap her into a beatdown, only for her to get murdered herself.
