Recap / The Powerpuff Girls 2016 S 03 E 01 Aliver

Go To

"Aliver" is a competition reality show to find the world's greatest superhero. The girls are contestants, but so is Princess Morbucks, who hedges her bets during the competition.

This episode contains examples of:

  • Call-Back: Buttercup's fear of spiders, first noted in original series episode "Power-noia," resurfaces.
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: Princess manages to win but the girls get her to admit she did so through cheating, disqualifying her.
  • Advertisement:
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Jarhead is a Marine with a jar for a head.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Princess wins, but then she sees the other competitors crying. The Powerpuff Girls are apparently dead from the last contest which prompts Princess to tearfully admit that she cheated but never intended for this to happen to the girls. Then they wake up.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Princess admits she ended up in the competition because her father owns network the show runs on.
  • Shout-Out: Definitely referring to CBS's Survivor series. The "promos" for "Monkey Matrimony" (with Mojo Jojo) takes a swipe at The Bachelor.

How well does it match the trope?
