YMMV: The Master of Disguise
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Pistacio autistic? Look at the evidence:
    • He impersonates people who are right in front of him and doesn't seem capable of seeing how offensive it is.
    • He has only one goofy facial expression.
    • He dresses up in weird costumes as a hobby, using things like shaving cream. Remember that he's over 30.
    • He mutters incessantly to himself and has poor posture.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Pistachio, as Turtle Guy, biting a guy's nose off cartoon-style then spitting it back onto the guy's face. What? How? Why? Who knows.
  • Fridge Logic: The whole point of disguise is to avoid drawing attention and suspicion to yourself, which is the exact opposite of what Pistachio does the entire movie.
  • Memetic Mutation: Turtle!
  • Retroactive Recognition: Dylan and Cole Sprouse as a young Pistachio.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Some of Pistacho's disguises are over-the-top racial stereotypes (complete with made-up, vaguely offensive names) with only Refuge in Audacity to protect them. Hell, even the whole Disguisey family are raging Italian stereotypes.
