Tropes present in the Huang Twins' works include:

  • Animation Bump: Their art styles are rather crude, but this is made up for by their animation styles having very strong attention to detail and fluidity.
  • Arc Number: 2,763. According to Michael on Discord, the reason as to why this number was chosen is because of the amount of siblings per lineage in their family tree by male child. (I.E. 2 siblings in Cary & Michael's lineage, 7 siblings in their father's lineage, 6 siblings in their grandfather's lineage, and 3 siblings in their great-grandfather's lineage)
  • Asian and Nerdy: Beyond their Chinese heritage, most of their content besides Battle for Dream Island is dedicated to technical expertise, with Michael's content focusing on music composition, and Cary's content focusing on coding and software programming.
  • Author Appeal:
  • Expospeak Gag: Their scripts often have them or their characters speaking in snippets of Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness before returning to normal dialogue. An example from Battle for Dream Island:
    Pencil: Thanks an octadecillion, Match! Now our stupid tests are stupidly on stupid fire!
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: They often incorporate details in the background that only pop up for a few frames at most.
  • Helium Speech: While their characters were voiced naturally at the start, as they got older, their characters' voices were mostly retained through pitch shifting, although some characters still use their natural pitches doing voice acting.
  • Perfectly Cromulent Word: Many of their works include words that would never be used in regular conversation and are only applicable to their work's setting.
  • Rubik's Cube: International Genius Symbol: One of Cary's channels, cubykh, is dedicated to speedcubing, whether it be through traditional Rubik's cubes or differently-shaped variants.
  • Scenery Porn: Wide shots in their works are usually held onto for about half a minute in order to show off all the details added.
  • Stock Audio Clip: They use a lot of audio clips from their older projects, often edited to be higher-quality or overlapped to make one whole audio clip.


Video Example(s):


A.I. Lip Reading

Cary thinks he's turned his lip-reading A.I. off, but it turns out he accidentally left it on, who begins reading his lips from his reading of the Bee Movie script in inaccurate, vulgar ways, causing him to frantically try and turn it off. It gets to the point where the A.I. makes it sound like Cary is in a sexual relationship with a girl named Hannah, which a lavender stick figure proceeds to childishly taunt him over.

How well does it match the trope?
