  • Captain N: The Game Master:
    • Season 1, Episode 11 has a lot of the questions about the mirror world, but this is probably one of the most amusing:
      So in the mirror world has the chicken or the egg debate looped around forever too or has it been solved?
    • In Season 2, Episode 11, Wombatman tells Kid Icarus to "take a speech class to get rid of that -icus problem." Cue wall of annotations proclaiming Wombatman as great as Simon. Doubles as a Moment of Awesome.

    • The annotators respond to the smurfing in Season 3, Episode 2 by going out of their way to add to the Hurricane of Puns.
    • Season 3, Episode 7 had the Prince pass out via magic potion, and had his face land right into his bowl of soup. The annotations noted that this was the only thing humorous in the third season. Than when Lana says it wasn't funny, the Annotators get mad and defend it.
  • From Ctrl+Alt+Del: Ethan's Everquest character sets Lucas's on fire three times. The first two times Lucas just stands there silently. The third time he actually screams, causing someone to comment "Third time's the charm apparently".

  • From Foodfight!:
    • Early on:
      Mr Clipboard: Your cuh-cuh-cuh (smacks self in head) customers.
      Annotation: This audition for The King's Speech was doomed to fail.
    • A single annotation perfectly sums up much of the film.
      Villain: All I ever wanted was you (Dax)!
      Annotation: All I ever wanted was to have sex with a dog!
    • One of the Annotators notes that Mr. Clipboard moves like a robot. When the conclusion of the film comes and this statement turns out to be accidentally appropriate, the same commenter throws a hissy fit over it.
    • As Dax starts up about all the people they lost a dialogue wheel pops up. Let's all now cry to honor them :sniff:/don't give up, or some shit/but they all died so fuck em. The middle option is selected.
  • Advertisement:
  • This exchange from Least I Could Do:
    Rayne: It's a real event! It has ribbons...okay I know the color is kind of ugly (holds up yellow support ribbon) Most of the good ones were taken.
    Annotation: The yellow ribbon actually represents, among other things, suicide prevention awareness, which I'm afraid is something I cannot support in this context.
  • In Sonic Underground, Robotnik's plan in Episode 35 is summed up as thus and the reaction to it:
    So let me see if I got this
    Step 2. Watch Sonic be all butthurt.
    End of Plan.
    Robotnik: Master Troll

  • The moral of Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue is "take drugs and all your favorite cartoon characters will show up to talk to you".
  • Throughout "Felix Saves Christmas" the Annotators keep insisting that the world is ending because of the Professor accidentally freezing everything.
    Meanwhile, millions of people are dying of hypothermia, animals are going extinct, and Blue Sky Studios is currently getting ideas for the next Ice Age movie.
    • The infamously long and grating "Snow Kids Rock" song has the annotators attack it viciously, and then bargain with it to finally end.
    (while the Snow Kids are snowboarding in formation) "Please tell me they're forming a target for a bomber plane to hit."
  • Dinosaur Adventure:
    • At one point a voice actor whispers "I'm done" as the screen fades to black, startling the Annotators.
    • When Tio falls off a small cliff, an annotation saying "THE END" pops up, while another declares "FATALITY".

  • In Donkey Kong Country:
    • When King K. Rool expresses his suspicion that the mines contain a doomsday weapon he rhetorically asks "Do you know what that means?". In response a trivia question pops up at the bottom of the screen:
    What does K. Rool mean by "A doomsday weapon that could destroy the whole island"?
    A. He could finally beat his high score in Video Game

      "Something, decay"
      "They're all mine! Piss off!"

    Miles's Mom: Stuff? What stuff, Baby?
    Miles: My stereo, and my computer, AND MY VIDEO GAMES, AND... EVERYTHING!!
  • In part 13 of Five Years!, recent events meant that the Savage Dragon retrospective had to be skipped. In it's place is a faux-dramatic memorial playing stereotypical sad music before exploding.

    • The moral of the first episode is "BEES DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOUR MANNERS! RULES OF NATUUUUUUURE!!!"
  • Mega Man
    • A conversation between Cut Man and Bright Man:
    Cut Man: Did you bring a light?
    Bright Man: (who has a lightbulb on his head) Oh fuck you.
  • From "Let's Jab (Wreck-It Ralph for the Wii": Lots of humor is derived from the fact that when the Ralph or Felix is hurt while in the air, they'll immediately scream as if they're taking a long fall, reaching it's climax when the person playing the game gets stuck in a Cycle of Hurting trying to do a platforming puzzle to get over a toppled wheelbarrow of construction equipment, with both Ralph and Felix screaming in terror at every misstep.
  • From "Let's Jab (Toy Story, or "Toy Sotry", NES Pirate)":
    • During the title screen of the game, they say that the music isn't really that bad. But then they go to the main menu, and after hearing it for 5 seconds, they take it ALL back!
    • When there's supposed to be a race level:
    Buzz: Maybe we need a race to settle this.
    next screen shows up to show that instead of a race, there's a boss battle. Woody then attacks Buzz.
    Woody: Actually, fuck you and your races!
    • Then the next level after the boss battle actually IS a race level.
    Annotation 1: OH MY GOD A RACE LEVEL!!!
    Annotation 2: Actually, I think you mean a boss battle...
    • Woody's victory dance in the game leads to an annotator wanting someone to make a Geddan remix of it.
    • Due to the bad grammar of the game, it leads to Buzz becoming a laser who has a lightbuls that slinks...
    • And, of course, the gas pumps that say "Toy Sotry" during the final level, with several of them mocking the typo.
    "Toy Sotry. Fucking really."
    "I don't know about you guys, but Toy Sotry was my fvaroite mvoie when I was a ltitle kdi."
    "Broken record yes, but FUCKING TOY SOTRY?"
  • Archie's Weird Mysteries
    • Archie has to borrow money from Jughead for once rather than the other way around.
    Jughead: It feels like I've been...used.
    Annotation 1: It's like I'm being written by DiC!
    • In the third episode, a scene where Veronica accidentally bumps into a low-hanging object and is knocked out is edited to look like she runs headfirst into the Unbreakable Annotation. As she falls to the floor and passes out, another annotation has her mutter "I hate running gags".
    • The third episode doesn't have any commercials, causing one of the annotations to accuse the uploader, VonnyFortran, of being a "commercial racist".
    • Episode 18 features Reggie being affected by cursed treasure that makes him greedy, and he at one point rattles off things that he's going to buy that are like Veronica's, and one Annotator sarcastically suggests that he "Might as well buy Veronica." Not even a second later, Reggie says he'll buy Veronica.
    • In The Annotated Archies in: Jugman, there is a scene in which the titular Jugman (an unfrozen caveman who has just been given a bath by Jughead) accidentally turns on a TV, which is playing an exercise show. He begins imitatively gyrating along with it, leading to an uncomfortably extreme close-up of his toweled, wiggling crotch.
      Annotation: Someone on the team liked animating shirtless cavemen dancing, didn't they?
  • Chichi Miko:
    • In the first part, one annotation that reads "[screams internally]" stays at the top of the screen for almost all of the video. In part two, it reads "[screams externally]" instead. In part three, it's noticeably absent, prompting another annotator to question where the screaming annotation is. A few seconds later, the annotation returns, reading "[screams eternally]".
    • Drawing googly eyes on Rinka's Gag Boobs.
    • The reveal of the protagonist's absurdly youthful grandmother:
    "We be fetishizing granny now? Okay then."
    "Oh my god....Ooooooh my gooood....

    Ukyou looks questionably hot in this picture."
  • In the Jay Jay the Jet Plane one-shot, one of the characters says "Let me remind you that God has a special plan for us", causing the entire group to freak out at once. As one annotator put it:
    • Then again, the entire episode could be considered this due to everyone's reactions to the literal Uncanny Valley that lies before them.
  • While riffing Animal Soccer World, the "movie" starts to show how little the developers cared when dubbing it when two songs that haven't even been translated from their original language (German) start to play... and the annotators make a Mondegreen version out of it with hilarious results.
    Yes I'm a mets in all mon, A half o'd'fang today...full version 

    Jay, my man, his boner is havin' a failed date...full version 

    Kirby: Right back at Ya! 
  • General Tropes:
    • All the annotators make fun of Tiff for being a anti-fun brat, and seeing how she acts in the show, can you blame them?
    • Kirby's role as a hero was taken up to eleven, as the annotators make him a snarky and level-headed hero. that's done with everyone's shit in Cappytown.
    • As a result of the character's vocal evolution, and due to the character becoming slightly less endearing as the series progressed, King Dedede's exaggerated Southern accent has been mocked in later episodes, becoming either difficult to understand in the vein of Boomhauer or degrading completely into nonsensical ramblings.
  • Episode 1:
    • During the first minutes in episode 1, some annotator says this:
    • Made even better as to what an annotator makes a sheep say when he's about to get eaten:
    Annotator (as Sheep): So this is how life ends... staring into what looks like a puckering asshole...
    • Actually, the whole first scene has the annotators confused as to how they can show skeletons of recently deceased sheep, but not guns or blood. As one annotator puts it:
    "What the- where's the blatant 4kids censorship?"
    • Immediately, after the one note of the theme song, everyone gets excited, with someone shouting:
  • "Dedede: Comin' At Ya!" plays up every character's (and annotator's) traits to a ridiculous extreme.
  • Someone gives every Knight a name and their own thick accent.
  • Episode 4:
    • Iro and his family steel themselves for Channel DDD's upcoming comedy programming.
    Iro: "Do you like comedy, Mom?"
    Iro's Mom via annotation: "Your birth was hilarious, yes."
    • After Dedede introduces TV to Cappytown, everybody is glued to the tube, except for Tif.
    Dedede: "Ah got everybody in town glued to my channel!"
    Escargoon: (referring to Tiff) "Yes, except for that little brat friend of Kirby."
    • Tiff's outburst in the first half of the episode pretty much sealed her reputation as a humorless, uptight killjoy.
    Annotation: Tiff is like Lisa Simpson x100 in this episode.
    Annotated Mr. Curio: "It's a novelty that's been around for a single day! Also, calm the fuck down!"
    • King Dedede manages to hypnotize the townsfolk into thinking that Kirby must go away. The ploy even works on Kirby himself.
    Annotated Kirby: "I WILL GO AWAY..."
    ...Or "I NEED A VACATION..."
    ...Or "Fine by me, this place sucks."
  • Both with and without the annotations, King Dedede's lineup of programming and sponsors for his new TV channel is hilarious.
    • There's Dedede's cooking show, which only ever shows us Dedede preparing what looks like steamed rice covered with black sludge.
    Annotation: Meh, better Dedede than Guy Fieri I guess.

    • Next is the promo for a nature show, in which Dedede examines a snail under a magnifying glass.
    Annotated Dedede: "I can definitely confirm that this is not an elephant."

    • And then we have 'Dededeep Space 9'...
    Annotated Dedede: "Lieutenant Escargoon! Set a course for the nearest lazy parody!"

    • The last promo is especially funny.
    Escargoon: "...And the late-late movie is 'King Klong Versus the Houston Astos'?!"
    Annotated Escargoon: "...Look folks, we didn't have a lot of time to properly think all of these out."

    • The station's commercials are all just King Dedede selling various products of his. First up is soap with his face printed on it.
    Annotated Dedede: "The only face that should rub up against your junk is mine."

    • But decidedly more disturbing than King Dedede lounging about in a tub is a baby Dedede pooping into a diaper with his image on it.


How well does it match the trope?
