What happens when you send the mascot(s) of a pizza joint to an F-Zero race. The whole thing is on YouTube!

Chuck E. Cheese in the Galaxy 5000 provides examples of:

  • And That's Terrible: The X-Pilots are called "jerks", "buffed-out buffoons", and "bullies" within their first three minutes of screentime.
  • Award-Bait Song: As hilarious as the prospect is for this movie, "Why Can't He See the Real Me?" seems like it was made to get an award of some sort.
  • Big Bad: Dr. Zoom, whom the X Pilots work for and is the creator of Zoom Gas.
  • Drugs Are Bad: Zoom Gas, created by the villain Dr. Zoom, is meant to represents steroids and narcotics, especially given how Dr. Zoom talks about it:
    Dr. Zoom: "So what if it makes mush of your brain? Would you rather have a high IQ or go on to money and fame?"
    • Not to mention the contrast at the end between the X-Pilots trying to win by using the stuff and Chuck E. beating them via his own hard work.
  • Extreme Sport Excuse Plot: Chuck E. and co. join the race in hopes of using the prize money to help Charlie's parents buy a new tractor. This point is only brought up once other than in the first scene and the ending.

  • Furry Confusion: Helen is captured and imprisoned with non-sentient chickens to be "juicified" to make Zoom Gas.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Dr. Zoom stops the X Pilots from getting into a physical fight with Chuck E, only so they would beat him in a race instead.
  • Shout-Out: Munch and Jasper sing the chorus of "Do Re Mi" from The Sound of Music in the first scene.
  • Training from Hell: In the way of a crash course in what appears to be physics, dodging randomly occurring explosions while balancing on pillars, running a giant hamster wheel and playing a game of whack-a-mole... where the moles whack back. Oh, did I mention that this was all in one night?
  • Villain Ball: Hey Dr. Zoom. Way to go jailing an anthropomorphic chicken who can pluck out a feather in order to escape without any supervision.
  • Would Hurt a Child: The X Pilots don't seem to care that one of the Songbird's passengers is a young boy as that did not stop them from attacking the Songbird or trying to knock it out of the race.


How well does it match the trope?
