Mashed is a collaboration of animated parodies on Youtube. Included is parodies of Overwatch and a series called Secret History. The channel can be found here. Mashed works with numerous animators to produce their work.

Tropes that have occurred in the animation:

  • Adaptational Villainy: Applies to Mario, Tails, and Harry Potter in Secret Histories.
  • Ambiguously Bi: When Genji asks McCree if his butt is still a killer, McCree nervously responds to his question.
    McCree: Yeah, sure. It's still a killer butt. Not that I would know. I mean how could I? It's not like I'm an expert on guy's butts or anything like that.

  • Bad Liar: As said by Ganon in Pause attacks, "I am the king of lies, and would never... wait."
  • Bad Boss: Mario is this in Secret Histories of Super Mario Bros..
  • Big "NO!": The reaction both Link and Ganon have when Sidon sleeps with Zelda.
  • Deconstructive Parody: Spyro's Bad Day rips apart the premise of the Spyro classic trilogy:
    • Spyro is repeatedly annoyed that for some reason, it's all up to him to save the day. He doesn't want to do it, basically gets forced into doing it, and all he wants to do is go home.
    • He also calls out that he's basically forced to be the hero in Avalar, since he can't go home otherwise:
    Professor: Well, it looks like you're stuck here; you're going to have to collect all of the things and then defeat Ripto!
    Spyro: No, this is extortion, this is bullcrap!
    Elora: Please, Spyro? We don't want to try anything else.
    • Turns out that getting all the things is a very, very painful process.
    • Instead of paying Moneybags, Spyro just charges through him.
    • Ripto realizes that the best way to deal with the angry Spyro is to simply give him what he wants: to go back home and never have to deal with this "extortion and bullcrap" ever again. It works and The Bad Guy Wins.
  • Downer Ending:
    • The Portal animation "Betty Help?" focuses on a robot named Betty trying to get water for a dehydrating human. However, Betty finds herself stopping to help others who need it. By the time she finally makes it back to the human with water, she is too late. She stays by the now dead human hoping that she can still help her up until her own battery runs out.
    • "Luigi’s Nightmare" ends with Luigi continuing to use drugs to live in the fantasy Mushroom Kingdom that he and Mario been living rather than accept the harsh reality that they're both has been drug addicts. To make it worse, Mario just overdosed.
    • "Paladin Jack", a British parody of Samurai Jack, reveals the whole show is nothing more than a dream of a mental patient, who thinks he's Paladin Jack.
  • Enemy Mine: Reaper teams up with Overwatch to interrogate Sombra about the Omnileaks.

  • Even the Guys Want Him: Sidon in Link and Sidon. When Link first hears about him, he’s prepared to challenge him to battle. Upon meeting him, he falls in love like everybody else. Even Ganon wants him.
    Link(to Ganon): What? No! You want Zelda. She’s all yours. You can keep her.
    Zelda: Great! Real heroic, Link.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: Donkey Kong's Bizarre Adventure has everyone speaking in Japanese with English subtitles.
  • Hopeless with Tech: In Soldier 76 sucks, Soldier 76 struggles figuring out how to work the computer so badly that he ends up going to Omnibook instead of Google to find answers. Reaper mocks him for this.
  • Lost Food Grievance: Donkey Kong's Bizarre Adventure has DK going ape on the cast of Super Smash Bros by giving them Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs while shouting BANANANANA a la Star Platinum.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: The entire premise of ''Yu-Gi-Oh! Poker Night" involves a basic game of poker being intertwined with the absurdity of a standard Yu-Gi-Oh! episode.
  • No Fourth Wall: Such is the case with Deadpool JRPG, but considering who the toon focuses on, this shouldn't be a surprise.
  • Oh, Crap!: Winston's reaction when he finds the Virus almost completely downloaded and setting the base to self-destruct.
  • Schmuck Bait: Sombra posts a link to what is obviously a virus for Soldier 76 to click.
    Sombra: This will fix everything, Jack... Trust me.
    Soldier 76: Thanks Sombra. You're so good with this Gigabot stuff.
  • The Stoner: Mario and Luigi in Luigi’s Nightmare. The whole Mushroom Kingdom and their good looks is nothing more than them high on drugs. In actuality, they are two ugly old stoned men in Vice City. Peach may be this as well.
  • The Unintelligible: In Super Smash Bros.: Pause Attacks. Kirby only ever speak when Ganon has his foot or fist in his face while the game is paused.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: "Eat my Zerg Rush, BITCHES"
  • Too Dumb to Live
    • Soldier 76 takes downloads an obvious virus that Sombra sends him in Soldier 76 sucks.
    • Winston also gets this moment in Omnileaks where he reveals the password to Sombra's cuffs to be password. Even worse, he uses this password for everything.
  • Yandere: Tails is portrayed as this in Secret History of Sonic & Tails. He murders Knuckles and Shadow, and he attempts to do the same to Amy. After Sonic tells Tails that the two of them aren't friends, Tails decides that he isn't Sonic.
