* CallingYourAttacks: Marcus has a habit of saying the name of whatever tool he's presently using.



* CreatorThumbprint: It's another Creator/HankAndJed series with their trademark realistic stuttering, interrupting, talking over each other dialogue.



* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Cameron incidentally mentions that he [[spoiler:beat one of the monsters to death with his bare hands.]] It takes a bit for the rest of the Mob Squad to finish freaking out over what that implies.



* EternalRecurrence: This isn't the first time the monster has appeared.

to:

* AdmiringTheAbomination: Cameron is deeply obsessed and impressed with the monster's creations. Reaches truly ridiculous heights when he gets sidetracked by the beautiful complexity of [[spoiler:the Mob Grinder]], which comes very close to [[spoiler:killing Cooper.]]


Added DiffLines:

* CollectorOfTheStrange: Marcus, to the minds of the rest of the Mob Squad, when he announces his intention to keep the "poop" (actually a nugget of coal) he'd just dug up.


* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:In the season 2 finale, just when the rest of the squad is about to be killed by a group of players, Cooper returns from the Nether with a horde of Ghasts.]]



* DeadpanSnarker: Phil and Cooper take the cake.
** Everyone to Cameron.

to:

* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:The Ghasts ''decimate'' the player town in the season 2 finale.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Phil and Cooper take the cake.
** Everyone
in general, but everyone exhibits at least some of this to Cameron.

Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: The show is actually surprisingly idealistic (especially for something that airs on Machinima Happy Hour), being about a group of close knit friends that live together, who do their absolute best to keep themselves and each other alive from an outside evil.

Added DiffLines:

* RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic: Averted. This is probably the most misunderstand able, jumbled dialogue you will find in a fictional work.


Currently in its second season.

'''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwHWyfZNjuk&list=PLFKlsr9OG59utI9TdwacARBmw5oSNd23i Mob Squad]]''' is a web toon by Creator/HankAndJed set in the world of ''Videogame/{{Minecraft}}''.

A new monster has appeared in the forest. It kills animals, builds bizarre structures, and leaves junk everywhere it goes. Fed up, a group of friends from a nearby cave band together to form the Mob Squad, and dedicate themselves to killing the monster.

Currently in its second season.

!!Mob Squad provides examples of:

* AllWomenAreLustful: The Witch is the only female, and she talks almost non-stop about sex.
* {{Angrish}}: When enraged, Cameron can only speak a mess of profanity.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Cameron is obsessed with blocks.
* BerserkButton: Cameron goes ballistic when stared at.
* BestialityIsDepraved: When the Mob Squad notice the monster's bed smells like sheep, they assume he's a "sheep-fucker".
* CharacterDevelopment: Most prominent with Marcus, who develops an interest in crafting. He also starts getting sarcastic in season 2.
* EternalRecurrence: This isn't the first time the monster has appeared.
* FailedASpotCheck: The monster walks right past TNT without noticing it.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: The mobs live in peace with the animals of the world. They're horrified when the monster kill animals. Marcus adores ocelots. Cooper tries to adopt a baby cow that the monster orphaned, though he's clueless at it.
* HiveMind: Nigel.
* HumansAreCthulhu: The central premise of the show.
* {{Irony}}: Cooper scoffs at the idea that the world is full of caves and mines.
* {{Noob}}: The monster doesn't seem to be particularly adept at playing ''Videogame/{{Minecraft}}''.
* PerpetualFrowner: Nigel's default expression is a scowl.
* SmokingHotSex: The Witch, after being with Lyle.
* VitriolicBestBuds: The Mob Squad bicker amongst themselves constantly, but are still tight friends. Contrast this with Nigel, who simply insults everyone he talks to.
