Craig. Get my jetpack!note 
Barry Steakfries series is a video game franchise by Halfbrick Studios starring Barry Steakfries, an Australian businessman armed with weapons and a Recoil Boost Jet Pack on adventures against the Mad Scientist Professor Brains.

Video Games in the series are:

Web Animation:

  • Barry Steakfries Rock Operas (2014 - 2015) - A series of rock opera music videos.
  • Barry Vlog (2018 - 2022) - Barry's own video blog.
  • Jetpack Joyride Shorts (2019 - 2021) - A series of story-based animated shorts leading up to Jetpack Joyride 2.

Tropes present across the whole series:

  • Anachronic Order: The chronological order of main three games as shown in The Story of Barry Steakfries Trailer is JJ > MD > AoZ - the opposite of the order these games were released in.
  • Bad Guy Bar: Where Barry and Craig hang out in some of the Jetpack Joyride Shorts episodes. It's owned by Really Bad Corp.
  • Bottomless Magazines: Default weapons are usually this but special weapons from crates are not. Averted with Machine Gun Jetpack in Monster Dash (with the exception of "Death From Above", "Dirty Air" and "Rain of Fire" missions, which have no ground to land on), but played straight in Jetpack Joyride.
  • Cool Bike: Monster Dash and Jetpack Joyride feature one named Bad As Hog.
  • I Call It "Vera": The shotgun that Barry often uses is apparantly named "Barry the Gun" in 38th episode of the Vlog.
  • Jetpack: Machine Gun Jetpack was first introduced in Monster Dash as one of the bonus weapons, but became a staple of the franchise starting with Jetpack Joyride.
  • Mooks: Zombies in Age of Zombies, Monsters (including zombies) in Monster Dash and Scientists in Jetpack Joyride, though the latter are harmless.
  • Sawed-Off Shotgun: One of the weapons in Age of Zombies, which became Barry's preferred weapon since Monster Dash.
