Go To

Starting from March 13th 2013, Dr. Monster is a series of animations by LilDueceDuece that pit pun themed monsters in rap battles, not unlike Epic Rap Battles of History. Originally the series started out mainly for holidays, but grew into more general ideas. Currently, there are 6 battles in the series.

  • Leperchaun vs Leopardchaun
  • Hampire vs Zombeef
  • Christmas is Cancelled (Mistletoad vs Frosty the Bro Man)
  • Deady Bear vs Leperchaun
  • The Andrewoids
  • Eggsecutioner vs Eggsterminator

Behold! My most fearsome creature yet! The Tropeanzee!

  • An Arm and a Leg: Due to the Leperchaun's leprosy, his limbs are constantly falling off.
  • Battle Rapping: The premise of the series is Dr. Monster's creations doing this to one another.
  • Bears Are Bad News: The Deady Bear.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Douglas, Dr. Monster's perfectly normal British assistant and Foil.
  • Big Bad: The only monster that could be described as a true villain is Mistletoad, who bombs anything merry or Christmas related just for fun.
    This Christmas, I'm making up my hitlist, gonna check it twice!
    But I don't care if your naughty or nice
    Because Christmas is Cancelled!
  • Body Horror: The Leperchaun has an exaggerated case of leprosy, so he's constantly shedding his skin. And limbs. His touch also has this effect to give less comedic results, like when he touches a singer's face and her entire head devolves into rotten skin flakes.

  • Brick Joke: "...OHHH. Leper-chaun, I get it!"
  • Card-Carrying Villain / Large Ham: Besides Douglas, virtually every character.
  • Comically Missing the Point: "I don't see what's so scary about a dyslexic leprechaun."
  • Couch Gag: Every episode starts with a small gag between Dr. Monster and Douglas that eventually segways into the battle.
  • Creepy Doll / Evil Doll: The Deady Bear.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Frosty the Bro Man is pretty brave to try and stand up against Mistletoad, who's clearly a trillion times more harmful.
    • Same can be said for Hambire and Deady Bear, who have some pretty beefy competition.
  • Empty Shell: The Deady Bear's personality schtick.
  • Evil Brit: Deady Bear is voiced by the English Jayme Gutierrez.
  • Freudian Excuse / Dark and Troubled Past: The Deady Bear was Dr. Monster's first creation and childhood friend, being a teddy bear who was gifted consciousness by Monster. He bitterly mentions that existence was an empty, apparently agonizing void before this. The Leperchaun dismisses this as a "sob story".
    • The Mistletoad also hates Christmas for a reason, as it caused him anguish when he was a tadpole.
  • Harmless Villain: Ironically, despite half of the series being Dr. Monster's creations boasting about how badass and villainous they are, half of them are pretty harmless. The Leopardchaun, Frosty the Bro Man, and Deady Bear aren't shown doing anything genuinely harmful, unlike the Leperchaun, Mistletoad, Hampire, and Zombeef.

  • He's Back: The Leperchaun, in "Deady Bear vs. Leperchaun".
  • Hurricane of Puns: All of the rappers relentlessly examplify this throughout their verses.
  • Last-Second Word Swap: Of the Curse Cut Short variety in "The Andrewoids".
    Douglas: I'm not scared of you robot Canucks. Step to me and you'll get fundamentally outclassed.
  • Laughably Evil: Dr. Monster is a hammy Mad Scientist monster.
  • Leprechaun: Two of them, a leprechaun with leprosy, and a leprechaun that's a leopard.
  • Logic Bomb: How Douglas deals with the Andrewoids - ask them if a set of all sets contains itself, and to calculate Pi to the last digit.
  • Mad Bomber: The Mistletoad is basically a terrorist against Christmas.
  • Mad Scientist: Dr. Monster is a gleefully stereotypical one.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: The Hampire is a pig vampire, the Zombeef is a zombie bull, and the Leopardchaun is a leopard leprechaun.
  • One-Woman Wail: Part of the chorus in "Leperchaun", and a recurring element in "Deady Bear vs. Leperchaun".
  • Only Sane Man: Douglas, but it's not very hard to be in a lab full of an insane scientist's monstrous creations.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Dr. Monster's vampires double as pigs.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Dr. Monster's zombies double as bulls.
  • Punny Name: The series is based on this.
  • Really 700 Years Old: "Just because you're a thousand years old doesn't make you a millennial."
  • The Scrooge: The Mistletoad takes this Up to Eleven. He vents his hatred of Christmas by being a straight-up terrorist against all things festive.
  • Shout-Out: Common in the series. There are a decent amount of pop culture references seen in both the lyrics and videos.
  • Take That!: The series isn't afraid to do this sometimes. For example in "Deady Bear vs Leperchaun", Leperchaun drops this line:
    You think you scare me? Ha, too bad Deady!
    Your gimmick's more played out then Five Nights at Freddy's
    • And again, in the same battle:
    Why you boo hooing like Whiney the Pooh
    You’re even more unnecessary than Ted 2
  • Totally Radical: This seems to be Frosty the Bro Man's quirk.
    • Also, "Deady Bear vs. Leperchaun" starts with Dr. Monster using awkward, "hip" slang during something like a mid-life crisis.
      Dr. Monster: Behold, Douglas! My 'brows! They're on fleek, bruh.
      Douglas: Dr. Monster, are you feeling okay?
      Dr. Monster: Never better, bay-bay! I'm young and hip and down with the millenials!
      Douglas: Just because you're a thousand years old doesn't make you a millenial.
