->''"I AM LARD BEEPUS. THIS IS MY TRUSTY ASSISTANT, WHISPER. I LIKE TO /SCREAM/"''
-->-- Lard Beepus introducing himself to a group of baffled onlookers.

''the story of lard beepus'' is a bizarre Anime/DragonBallZ FanFic starring the titular Lard Beepus and his [[VideoGame/YokaiWatch Yokai butler]] [=WHISper=]. After accidentally blasting off to New Namek and being saved from New Frieza's army by a time-travelling warrior, they travel to a dismal future and meet several new friends. Together, they have to find out how to defeat the Shadow of Time, a mysterious villain causing devastation across countless timelines.

Meanwhile, there's still New Frieza on the loose, the Time Patrol from VideoGame/DragonballXenoverse investigating Lard Beepus's timeline, Future Puar grappling with loneliness and running his cooking show after losing his timeline's Yamcha, and some sort of business competition between Oolong's Weed Shack, Puar's Tobacco Hut, and Chiaotzu's Vape House.

It's one of ''those'' [[TrollFic stories.]]

----
!!This fanfic contains examples of:

* AdaptationalBadass: Subverted with Future Yamcha. He's considered incredibly cool by Lard Beepus and [=WHISper=], he manages to scare off 398 of New Frieza's soldiers just by charging up his Wolf Fang Ultimate Blast, and his Future Wolf Fang Fist at least appears to be pretty impressive. But he does still end up [[spoiler:dying to a horde of Saibamen early on.]]
* AliensOfLondon: Despite being a Saiyan on Planet Vegeta, Parsle speaks in some sort of nondescript "Southern" American accent.
* [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys All Girls Want Bad Girls]]: Belle immediately develops a crush on Bad Launch on sight, and doesn't consider it a dealbreaker that Launch is willing to rob stores.
* AlternateSelf: A lot, due to the time travel-filled plot. Future Puar and Tobacco Hut Puar, most present characters and their dark future counterparts, presumably Future Yamcha and Dark Future Yamcha, and possibly present Gorg... and Time Patrol Gorg...
* AlternateTimeline: Takes place in a very, very strange one to the main timeline of Dragon Ball, and others are involved by way of the Time Patrol.
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Tokitoki, a bird, can get rabies. Lampshaded and... justified(?) by the fact that only Tokitoki can get rabies.
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: Lard Beepus intends to become a God of Destruction.
* TheBabyOfTheBunch: Lard Beepus is the youngest of any group he ends up in, and he's just a '''baby''' boy!
* BadFuture: Possibly more than one!
* BeigeProse: Almost all the time, constantly.
* BigBad: The Shadow of Time, and to a lesser extent, New Frieza.
* BigDamnHeroes: Future Yamcha swoops in to save the day right before Lard Beepus and [=WHISper=] are attacked by New Frieza's new soldiers.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment:
**VEGETA JUMPED INTO THE OCEAN. "OH SHIT IM GETTING MYSELF KILLED" HE SAID AS HE FOUGHT A JELLYFISH VERSION OF BEERUS
**just then BROLY BURST IN THROUGH THE DOOR launch grabbed and gun and fired it at the ceiling scaring him away "alright let's go"
* ButtMonkey: Both Future Trunks and Time Patrol Trunks come off as this, surrounded by people who range from silly to outright nasty to him and seemingly unable to do anything about it.
* CallingYourAttacks: So far only Future Yamcha has done it, but it ''is'' a Dragon Ball Z fanfiction, so there will likely be many, many more.
* CharacterMagneticTeam: What begins as just Lard Beepus and [=WHISper=] explodes into a huge group of people all working together.
* CloudCuckooLander: At least half the [[OriginalCharacter Original Characters]] are this.
* CosmicKeystone: According to Oolong, the universe's continued stability is dependent on the Weed Shack.
* CurbStompBattle: The fight between Yamcha and the Shadow of Time.
* DeusExMachina: The meteor that flies out of nowhere to hit baby Gorg...'s space pod out of the way, and incidentally knock Califler's pod into the sun.
* DisproportionateRetribution:
**Krillin murders Oolong for never being helpful.
**Even if it was really because of his rudeness to Lard Beepus, Oleracea using a quote from New Jeice ends in his wrist being broken.
* EdibleThemeNaming: Much like in the source material, all Saiyans are named after vegetables.
* EvilCounterpart: Future Yamcha to Dark Future Yamcha, though whether or not their timelines have any relation or they've even met is unclear.
* EvilOverlord: The Shadow of Time rules over at least one ruined timeline.
* FourLinesAllWaiting: The plot has a tendency to split into multiple plot threads, often up to five or six, rejoin a few, and then split off new ones.
* GratuitousJapanese: The in-chapter title for chapter 19 is "the mirai future (it's not the past!)", but the index chapter title calls it "the future future" instead!
* GunsAreWorthless: This is the case for when the Great Forest Bandit tries to use a gun, but according to Launch her own gun can blow up a planet, so she handily averts it.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Future Yamcha.]]
* HurlItIntoTheSun: How trash pods from Planet Vegeta work.
* IdiotHero: Lard Beepus is this at times, not knowing very much about the world.
* {{Jerkass}}: Oleracea.
* KidHero: Lard Beepus is just a baby boy!
* KickTheDog: When Lard Beepus mistakes present Yamcha for Future Yamcha, Oleracea decides to be incredibly harsh in correcting him.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Oh boy. There's tons of canon characters, including several who are very minor in the source material, and several have more than one iteration. On top of that, there's quite a few [[OriginalCharacter Original Characters]] running around.
* BrownNote: Lard Beepus's constant screaming is usually harmless, but at one point he accidentally kills several Namekians just by the sheer volume of his voice!
* MysteriousPast: Many of the new characters have no backstory at all, and Eatshorts Nart's backstory is incredibly vague and unhelpful.
* NoIndoorVoice: Lard Beepus and Eatshorts Nart.
* NoSell:
**[[spoiler:The Shadow of Time]] to both Future Yamcha's Wolf Fang Ultimate Blast and Future Wolf Fang Fist.
**Everyone to the Great Forest Bandit's bullets, expectedly.
* PaintingTheMedium: Shenron and Welchs both always speak in perfect spelling and grammar. For Shenron, it's to imply great power, and for Welchs... the author's intentions aren't really clear.
* PaletteSwap: Lard Beepus is described and drawn as a small yellow version of Lord Beerus.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Averted with Lard Beepus, who is actually rather frail and powerless.
* RecursiveFanfiction: At the end of chapter 27, the winners for a supposed "lard beepus fanfiction contest" are announced, but not a single one of the fanfics exist, ''and one of them doesn't even have to do with Lard Beepus!''
* RunningGag: "HOLY SHIT" said _____. they will never ride nimbus again
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: Lard Beepus says "burble burble burble" while drowning in chapter 9.
* SignatureMove: The Wolf Fang Ultimate Blast is Future Yamcha's future signature attack.
* SongFic: Chapter 24 is a type two with Dark Future Yamcha and Future Puar unknowingly singing a duet with each other... this duet being This Grill Is Not A Home from WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: All characters names are prone to misspellings, but Lard Beepus's name has the most permutations out of everyone, which only get sillier as the story goes on. Lard Beepys, Lrad Bippus, Laord Bepsi, Lread Bepsise, Lard Beaaaaaaaaapu... the list goes on.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: New Frieza and his new soldiers on New Namek don't even try to pretend they're anything else.
* TimeMachine: Both Gorg... and Future Trunks's group each have one, and it's possible others do too.
* TimePolice: The Time Patrol.
* TookALevelInBadass: Future Yamcha is definitely this to past Yamcha. Also, every present character after the offscreen training sequence is implied to have done this - notably, Puar now has rippling muscles.
* {{Transplant}}: [=WHISper=] is a strange case. He's an original character, but he's also depicted as Whisper from VideoGame/YokaiWatch with the face of Whis. He's also referred to as a Yokai butler.
* WouldHurtAChild: Lard Beepus is repeatedly referred to as a "baby boy" so anyone who attacks him is potentially this.
