1[[quoteright:314:]] ²²''Scooby-Doo! and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Franchise/ScoobyDoo and Music/{{KISS}} are together in an animated movie with a rock and roll inspired mystery. It is the 24th Installment in the WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooDirectToVideoFilmSeries. It is also the final entry in the franchise (to date at least) to feature Creator/MindyCohn as the voice of Velma. Creator/KateMicucci would replace her starting with ''WesternAnimation/BeCoolScoobyDoo''.²²The story features Scooby and the gang coming to the Kiss World amusement park to see KISS play a Halloween concert where -- surprise surprise -- they stumble upon a mystery. Or perhaps, everything is not as it seems? Or is it?²²----²!!''Scooby-Doo! and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery'' provides examples of:²²* AccidentalKiss: When Daphne uses a churro to revive Shaggy and Scooby, they end up doing the famous spaghetti-kiss with each other.²* ActorAllusion: Starchild paints Daphne's portrait at one point on a lark. Paul Stanley is a painter in real life.²* AmusementPark: Kiss World is an amusement park themed after KISS.²* AnotherDimension: The cosmic realm of Kissteria is another reality.²* AttackReflector: Spaceman's able to summon a spherical barrier that reflects the Crimson Witch's own energy blasts back at her.²* AnAxeToGrind: Demon's guitar doubles as an axe, which he uses to smash a giant meteor-like rock into bits when it's thrown at him.²* BarefootLoon[=/=]BarefootSage[=/=]MagicalBarefooter: Chikara is some combination of all three: she is quite loony, but at the same time seems to have genuine precognitive abilities and posesses a lot of knowledge about Kissteria. And she never wears anything on her feet.²* BigBad: The Crimson Witch is set up as our big villain of the movie to well let's just quote her. "GIVE ME ROCK!"²* BigBadEnsemble: [[spoiler:The ending revealed that the Crimson Witch is this with her imposter with both their goals being different from each other and is an example of the two not being aware of each other and the rest of the gang thinking there is one sole Big Bad, with Scooby and Shaggy being the ones who are aware of the Ensemble]].²* TheCameo: The mechanics at the opening are designed after and played by Creator/KevinSmith and Jason Mewes ([[Film/TheViewAskewniverse Jay and Silent Bob]]).²* ChaseScene: Several chase scenes are in the film, accompanied by KISS songs.²* CoolAirship: KISS has an airship designed to look like a guitar.²* CoolButInefficient: Scooby and Shaggy try to walk in KISS's boots. They have expected trouble.²* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Worn by [[ShoutOut Shandi Strutter]], KISS's special effects manager. ²* DeadpanSnarker: Velma has her moments of snarking.²* DoesNotLikeShoes: Chikara never wears shoes, even when she goes outside of her tent.²* TheEndingChangesEverything: Done twice. At first it seems like all the fantastic elements were a hallucination but the real end reveals otherwise.²* GreaterScopeVillain: The Destroyer is some kind of powerful monster trapped away years ago by KISS. The Crimson Witch seeks to free him.²* HeroOfAnotherStory: KISS has their own experience with groovy mysteries, but as they clarify, the ones they deal with are often more cosmic in nature.²* InkSuitActor: KISS are playing their stage personas as actual superheroes ala KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park.²* LegacyCharacter: In a neat MythologyGag the super-powered KISS origin mentions that the current members are descendants of originals. This tends to allow for the idea there have been multiple incarnations of the team over the years. Though mind you the real members of the band weren't related, nor were they super heroes from Kissteria, we think.²* MakeMeWannaShout: Starchild can project sonic waves while singing.²* TheMeddlingKidsAreUseless: Averted, they help save the universe!²* MerchandiseDriven: The merchandise manager for KISS is an in-universe example of this trope, obsessing over making a profit over any kind of merchandise bearing the band's image.²* MythologyGag: So so many.²** For KISS, there's a black diamond, The Destroyer, a woman named Delilah Domino, a woman named Shandi Strutter with her assistants Christine and Beth, a fortune teller named Chikara, etc.²** KISS has their superpowers from ''Film/KissMeetsThePhantomOfThePark''. Which was also produced by Creator/HannaBarbera. The AmusementPark setting is also a part of this.²** In general, Scooby and Kiss briefly interacted in ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo''. Although there only Paul Stanley did his own voice.²* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: KISS members are only referred to by their stage names, Demon, Starchild, Spaceman and Catman.²* PlayingWithFire: This is Demon's power, as he summons a ball of fire that turns into his [[AnAxeToGrind Axe guitar]], and can project fire from it.²* ThePowerOfRock: Given that this is a movie that prominently features KISS, naturally, they used the trope of rock music being able to save the world.²* RealAfterAll: [[spoiler: It is once [[MythologyGag again]] Scooby and Shaggy [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGoblinKing that are the ones to remember]] that all their crazy shenanigans really happened.]]²* ScoobyDooHoax: [[spoiler: At first the gang expect the Crimson Witch to be one. Then they think not as they travel with Kiss to a cosmic dimension. However then that is "revealed" to be a hallucination making the whole thing a ScoobyDooHoax again. Until Scooby and Shaggy see that Kiss really are super powered and that the whole adventure was not just an hallucination.]] Got all that?²* ShockAndAwe: Spaceman's guitar lets him shoot lightning.²* ShoutOut:²** Let's get one out right off the bat. It seems fitting a movie with lots of shout outs features the KISS song "Shout It Out Loud".²** The belt the Crimson Witch uses (or was it?) is from Quest Industries. As in ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest''.²** Kissteria's design aesthetics are basically a mix of the kind of 80s Scifi/Fantasy shows Creator/HannaBarbera and Creator/RubySpears made (''WesternAnimation/ThundarrTheBarbarian'' and ''WesternAnimation/GaltarAndTheGoldenLance''), mixed in with some stuff from ''ComicBook/SilverSurfer'', right down to the KirbyDots. (Kirby also did some KISS comics and some design work at both HB and RS, so it kinda comes full circle.)²** KISS' TransformationSequence is taken straight from ''Manga/SailorMoon'', specifically Mars' (Demon), Jupiter's (Spaceman), Star Fighter's (Catman), and Venus' (Starchild).²** In the epic battle against the Crimson Witch in Kissteria, Starchild calls the Crimson Witch "[[Series/HRPufnstuf Witchie-Poo]]".²* TransformationSequence: [[ KISS undergoes a transformation sequence to change their outfits.]]²* TwoKeyedLock: Four-keyed example. The McGuffin the witch wants is kept inside a box that cannot be opened unless Demon, Starchild, Spaceman and Catman open it together.


How well does it match the trope?
