Tropes relating to Sr. Pelo:

  • All There in the Manual: As "UN REGALO GRATIS PARA TI" is entirely in Spanish, the names of the four thieves are also in Spanish, with the English translations only given on Sr. Pelo's twitter.
  • April Fools' Day:
    • On April 1st, 2015, Sr. Pelo released "EVERY F*KING HOT DAY", which has a hot girl on the thumbnail, but when you click on the video...EXPECTING BOOBIES? TOO BAD, WALUIGI TIME. The rest of the video is just an animation of Waluigi dancing to sped up Waluigi Pinball. The video was later renamed to "Waluigi Time", thus taking out most of the joke.
    • "Pelo Talks: April Fools" makes fun of his English-speaking audience by making fun of them for not knowing Spanish. In Spanish.
    • The Spanish version of "Pelo Talks: April Fools" was set to premiere several months before it went live, as the Spanish equivalent to April Fool's Day is celebrated on December 28th rather than April 1st. When it finally arrived, it consisted of him just making fun of the viewers that waited all that time just to see what it was about.
    • On April 1st, 2022, Sr. Pelo released "UN REGALO GRATIS PARA TI"note , which sets itself up as an interactive story where the viewer is presented with four presents to choose from, each leading to a different unlisted video; however, no matter what the viewer chooses, a thief will make off with the present and the viewer will be mocked by a small child.
    • 2023's April Fool's day special is "SE BUSCAN LADRONES"note , a direct sequel to the previous year's special where a police officer helps the viewer catch the thief that made off with their gift... however, even if you stop the thief, the gifts are revealed to be rather crummy: the red gift is a tiny dancing gnome that laughs at you, the green gift is a dead fish, the blue gift is the small child spitting in your face, and the yellow gift is a cheese stink bomb.
  • The Antichrist: THE SIMPSONS: REVELATIONS has Marge giving birth to this. It's unclear whether or not Flanders was supposed to be the good guy and Pelo is unlikely to explain.
  • Arbitrary Headcount Limit: The Kirby Star Allies spoof "Making Friends" takes a grim turn whenever Kirby's party exceeds four members. Kirby and his three newest allies glare angrily at the fourth, while Kirby deeply whispers, "You not my friend", imploding him.
  • Author Appeal: Sr. Pelo is a massive fan of Touhou Project, so it's hard to watch any of his videos without seeing it referenced in some fashion.
  • Barrier-Busting Blow: Bawsah always tears through a wall in order to kidnap Princess Pitch.
  • Berserk Button: The audience members in "EVERY F* TOP 10" turn into angry fanged monsters whenever they hear that a list isn't composed of ten entries.
  • Bilingual Bonus:
    • "Sr. Pelo" translates to "Mr. Hair", a reference to his Funny Afro.
    • Taken literally with "Pelo Talks - In my Opinion..." as both the English and Spanish versions have altered jokes and animation.
  • Black Comedy: A common source of humor in his videos. Characters are shot, stabbed, and more, and it's all Played for Laughs. The "Stocktales" video is chock-full of it, here's a list:
    • The Grim Reaper stalks an old lady and a baby boy and kills them both.
    • A woman tries to kill a spider by throwing a stiletto-heeled shoe. It misses the spider, which makes her sad, but ends up hitting a man and rendering him either unconscious or dead, which she then celebrates.
    • The exterminator ends up burning down a woman's entire house down in order to fight the infestation of spiders. And yet one lived in the end.
    • The "Happy Birthday" segment where an old woman dies on her birthday.
    • A little boy throws many tantrums to the point that the mother gets pissed and beats him with a belt, represented as a baby doll with its head caved in.
    • The entire AIDS story. Especially the ending, where the diseases is finally beaten back - and then a furry comes out of nowhere to start the cycle anew.
    • The ghost story where a ghost haunts a family home and the mother tries to get rid of it. The ghost pushes an old woman down the stairs and possesses the woman's son. The mother then calls a priest and he purges it from the house, but then the ghost strikes back to kill the priest, forcing the family to move to a new home, but the ghost follows them there as well.
    • A thief robs multiple banks before being caught and thrown in jail, and then a larger inmate appears behind him.
  • Blatant Lies: The "JohnKnee and Ill" series proclaims in its theme song that the titular characters are "really good friends", but each video consists solely of Ill irrationally abusing JohnKnee.
  • The Cameo:
    • The Boyfriend from Friday Night Funkin' and Peppino from Pizza Tower make an appearance in Spooky Month - Unwanted Guest as a plushes on a store shelf.
    • He also tends to include Touhou Project characters in his videos from time to time as a fan of the series himself. Notable examples include Reimu appearing in Mokey's Show - The Sun, Cirno in Mokey's Show - Contagious Christmas, and several charactersnote  appearing as background extras in Spooky Month - Unwanted Guest when Skid and Pump visit the mall. The mall itself is also called "GensoMooru - Land of Everything" and has a heavy Japanese/Chinese theme. He would later create a full cartoon based on the series in 2021, eight years after a commentor asked for "Touhou in a Shellnut".
    • In "Touhou Project ~ Embodiment of Scarlet Devil", Sanae shows up when Marisa leaves the Hakurei Shrine, only for Marisa to order her away. ZUN himself then hops on the Hakurei Shrine porch.
    • Elain the Bounty Hunter from The Pink City appears on the poster near the drunk hobo in "Deadly Smiles", but only when zoomed in on his face.
    • Sr. Pelo himself cameos in the indie platformer game Mago, serving as the owner of the costume shop.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: The word or other variants are used 18 times in the ice cream story.
  • Death Is Cheap: All over the place in Touhou Project ~ The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, which is fitting if one considers the setting's spell card rules are supposed to be non-lethal despite how powerful the attacks can be. No matter how badly they end up, they all turn up alright in the ending. Which makes sense especially when The Stinger reveals In-Universe it's a flipbook being read by Marisa and Reimu.
  • Deranged Animation: He specializes in this, with many of his animations having some pretty disturbing imagery and animation.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: How David describes the manager from the ice cream story:
    David: BUT SHE WAS A FAAAATT GIRL!! AND SHE WAS A DAMN, A DAMN FAAAT GIRL. but with a good face...For for hiding THE DAAAAAMN FAAAAAT!
  • Disproportionate Retribution:
    • Notable in a good portion of his videos, specially in "Pelo Talks - In My Opinion..."
    Child (Holding a chocolate bar): I really like my chocolate.
    Bully (Suddenly appears): In my opinion, your chocolate tastes like CACA!Translation 
    Child (Starts to cry only to become enraged): IT'S MY CHOCOLATE!
    *The Bully pulls an Oh, Crap! facial expression*
    Child: No one talks bad, MY CHOCOLATE!!!
    Child (Pulling a Slasher Smile): You're gonna eat my chocolate.
    *The Child starts to force feed the Bully with a chocolate bar*Note 
    Bystander: I think you shouldn't said that.
    Bearded man (Furious): EHHHH... *Cue him stabbing the bystander*
    Bystander: AAAAAHHHHH-
  • Dragon-in-Chief: Sakuya Izayoi serves this role in Touhou Project ~ The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. To wit, before this point Reimu rather easily defeated everyone else (Rumia, Cirno, Hong Meijing, and Patchouli) in her way. The start of the fight with Sakuya is the point where Marisa herself takes off to the Scarlet Mansion. By the time Marisa clears her way through the previous foes herself with about as much ease and reaches Sakuya, she and Reimu are still going at it. Remilia herself goes down without much of a struggle in comparison.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: The Ratber Kid has a photo of his mother holding him as a baby inside his lair.
  • Foreign Cuss Word: Occasionally delves into spanish when angry, specially in his Let's Plays.
    Pelo: ¡Vas... pa chingar a tu madre!
    Subtitle: Go... respect your mother.
  • Humanoid Abomination:
    • While characters are prone to distorting for humor, Ill frequently turns into monstrous creatures when she's mad at JohnKnee, and JohnKnee's reactions indicate this is actually something she can do. Frequent things she turns into include a spider, a demon, and a weird lump covered in bumps.
    • The Comedian in "COMEDY" seems to be a normal man, but in actuality this is just a cover/form for a red mass covered in laughing faces.
  • Jump Scare:
    • Can happen when you've never seen his videos or just aren't expecting it even when you know his loud style.
    • Played for Laughs with the "OOGA BOOGA Witch" in "Spooky Month" (which is based off from Regan MacNeil), who also serves as a jab on The Nun's infamous viral campaign and the overusage of Regan in screamer pranks.
    Witch (In a rather hammy tone): OOGA BOOGA, heheh! You just got SPOOKED, PFFTHAAHAAAH!
  • Killer Rabbit: The ghost in "Stocktales" looks pretty friendly and harmless but it's actually a murderous and wicked ghost that haunts and torments the family home.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: The first three thieves of "UN REGALO GRATIS PARA TI" are what one would expect from a thief, that being a man in a suit covering most of his face, a rat in a mask, and a drone dressed like a bandit. The last thief, The Bluerglar Berry, is instead a three-headed berry man in vacation attire who does nothing to hide his identity.
  • Leave the Camera Running: "Fortnite in a shellnut" starts with the character getting shot. The scene stays put for five and a half minutes until Pelo slides in and asks the audience if they want a "Pelo Talks.
  • Literal-Minded: The monster in "EVERY F* TOP 10 who lists the top 100 Creepypasta starts with...spoiled pasta.
  • Loudness War: Sr. Pelo's favorite type of Sensory Abuse is extremely loud sounds.
  • Man of a Thousand Voices Despite being mainly known for his high-pitched screams, David has a surprisingly good vocal range. He usually does all the voices himself, with the occasional guest voice actors. For example, in his Underpants' Genocide Ending, he voiced all of the characters with the exception of Chara and Gaster.
  • Mexican Standoff: To prevent his capture, The Bluerglar Berry holds a gator running a food cart hostage with a gun: one of the actions is to simply point a gun at him, which will cause the police officer to turn his gun on you, and the gator gets so annoyed with the whole thing he pulls out a gun of his own at his captor. The small child then shows up with another gun and laughs at you, the frame freezing as he shoots it.
  • Mime and Music-Only Cartoon:
    • The "X is .." cartoons are this with a bit of Mickey Mousing.
    • The "Stocktales" are stories told entirely through the medium of stock images and video game music.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: He somehow found a way to make a slideshow of stock images very entertaining by adding a soundtrack of retro music and a hilarious Mind Screw story.
  • Nightmare Face: Frequently applied to anyone and everyone for both comedic and horrific purposes.
  • No Indoor Voice: Taken up to eleven with Sensory Abuse.
  • N-Word Privileges: He's included stereotypical depictions of Mexicans in his videos, but he himself is Mexican.
  • Refuge in Audacity: It takes a special kind of imagination to have the idea of creating a fetus version of themselves when making a vinyl figurine.
  • Retraux: The "Stocktales" video features a soundtrack of video game music from the Sega Genesis and SNES era.
  • Running Gag:
    • His Author Avatar repeatedly slams his hands down on his desk whenever he's angry. This sometimes results in the desk getting smashed to pieces.
    • The Inkling scream in Splatshorts.
    • In Super WAH HOO Bros. 2, there was a segment where the party would get scorched by the game's bosses. Gets taken up to eleven when the third boss they meet is just a crab, but it still breathes fire on them regardless.
    • "DON'T TOUCH THE CHILD!" in the Underpants series.
    • Waluigi showing up out of nowhere, and, occasionally, Wario with him.
    • JohnKnee's delayed screaming while having a baby-face once he's damaged enough, in "Peace" this happens twice.
    • Whenever Skid and Pump say "It's spooky month!" people tend to react by saying "Spooky month?" and doing the Spooky Dance.
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: If the sound effect wasn't made by Pelo hitting his desk, he usually says it instead.
  • Self-Deprecation: After having poked fun at nearly every Storytime Animators in Every Story Time Animation, and a few commentary Youtubers, he ends the video by making a Story Time Animation of his own, wich is pretty much just Mokey screaming his head off endlessly and making deranged faces every second, all while Pelo himself laughs so hard he ends up choking to death while collapsing on the ground.
  • Sensory Abuse: His videos border on this. Downplayed starting with the Genocide Ending for Underpants, when Pelo obtained a better mic.
  • Serious Business: He takes ice cream rather seriously, along with how chocolate should be dipped on it. It's best not to get in his way about it as seen in The Ice Cream.
  • Signature Sound Effect: He likes to use his very distinctive "banging on the table" sound effect anytime someone runs, rolls along the ground, slams into/against a surface, or when it cuts to his Author Avatar hitting the table. To a lesser degree, whenever a character flies out of a scene it's accompained with a loud "SOOSH!" voiced by Pelo himself.
  • Silence Is Golden:
    • Almost all of the dialogue in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate parody consists only of Voice Grunting, gasps, or laughs. The only intelligible lines come from one short scene of Bowser Jr. whining to his "Papa".
    • Touhou Project ~ The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil similarly has no spoken dialogue until The Stinger.
  • Stable Time Loop: Starting with "The Drawing", every episode of JohnKnee and Ill ends with a loop right back around to the start of the episode. Time still seems to progress in some manner, as JohnKnee remembers Ill's abuse towards him.
    • In "The Drawing", Ill throws JohnKnee down a tree, after which JohnKnee lands sitting in a chair, which leads to the JohnKnee from the start drawing the sitting JohnKnee.
    • In "Gift", after crossing Ill, Ill turns JohnKnee into a gift, that one being the one JohnKnee finds at the start of the episode.
    • In "Looking", after Ill slaps JohnKnee's dick, he turns into a crystal ball, which lets Ill see that JohnKnee is looking at a (supposed) porn magazine without her, causing her to go next door and bang on his door, kickstarting the episode.
    • In "Peace", after JohnKnee escapes from Ill by swimming in the water, Ill pulls him under and catches him like a fish. She then exits the water with her catch and passes by the JohnKnee from the start of the episode, before the Ill from the start calls out for him.
  • The Stinger: The after-credits scene in ''Touhou Project ~ The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil'' reveals that the entire cartoon was a weird flipbook Marisa found lying on the sidewalk and then showed to Reimu, and the two proceed to go show it to the Scarlet family; in said stinger, both are fully-voiced (in Japanese, no less) and are more on-model. Colorized versions of the crude Reimu and Marisa from the cartoon then appear, along with text and Sof Talk, the text-to-speech voice commonly associated with Yukkuri, telling viewers to play the Touhou Project games.
  • The Stoner: The scarlet mist in "Touhou Project ~ The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil" turns out to be caused by Remillia chain-smoking joints. She even has a box of donuts beside her for when the munchies kick in.
  • Stylistic Suck:
    • Occasionally features in his animation, and it's practically the whole thesis for both Mokey's Show and Super WAA HOO.
    • The entire "Stocktales" video is told through the medium of stock images and video game music.
    • The character designs in Touhou Project ~ The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil are rather crude, especially Marisa, who looks strangely-crocodilian. The Stinger reveals that the entire cartoon was a flipbook Marisa found on the sidewalk; said ending depicts her and Reimu with more conventional designs and fully-voiced dialogue.
  • Shout-Out: The small child from "UN REGALO GRATIS PARA TI" is an expy of Mexican comedian, Xavier "Chabelo" Lopez
  • Suddenly Shouting: Happens constantly, usually Once per Episode. With some exceptions, like Spooky Month, there's almost always one character shouting at the top of their lungs, sometimes in pain, and even Pelo himself in live videos is very prone to doing this, often with a bass boost.
  • Take That!:
    • "EVERY F* TOP 10" is a clear one to the list video phenomenon.
    • When Pelo dips into political commentary, it becomes clear that he hates people trying to suppress others by way of extreme progressive beliefs, and doesn't like when people try to make a political issue out of nothing.
    • "EVERY STORYTIME ANIMATION" is one towards storytime animations.
  • There Was a Door:
    • In Super WAA HOO Bros. 3; Bawsah leaves Waahoo's bedroom by punching another hole in the wall, as opposed to leaving through the first hole he punched.
    • In Super WAA HOO World, Bawsah carries Pitch away by punching a hole into the first hole.
    • Happens in The Simpsons: Revelations multiple times in the span of 10 seconds. Homie busts through the wall once and comes out of a second hole, only to make a third one by destroying the door frame.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: JohnKnee becomes more and more rude and quick to piss off in later JohnKnee and Ill episodes. Justified as he's tired of Ill tormenting him.
  • Unsound Effect: Often happens in the subtitles. One of the most common examples is "[PAIN]".
  • Valentine's Day Episode: Cute Dudes episode #1 "celebrates" Valentines Day, when a giant heart stabs a dude in his own heart.
  • Verbal Tic: The Bluerglar Berry will occasionally say a word three times, each time with a different head.
  • With Friends Like These...: The Expository Theme Tune for JohnKnee and Ill insists the two "really good friends." In the episodes themselves, Ill quickly gets pissed off for little to no reason and abuses JohnKnee, and as the episodes progress, JohnKnee starts responding in kind. One episode lampshades this by having the lyric "They're really good friends" from the Title Theme Tune be written in the subtitles as "they're really bad friends".
  • You Are Who You Eat: In Cute Dudes episode #2, anyone who eats Tide Pod-chan becomes her when waking.

IT'S THE SPOOKY MONTH! (does the Spooky Dance)


Video Example(s):


The Replacement Cops

In "Tender Treats", Mayor Evermore threatens to replace John and Jack with two police officers based off The Captain and Shotgun Man, two characters from a previous animation made by Sr. Pelo, Every StoryTime Animation.
