Nameless is an ongoing comedy-drama-adventure Flash cartoon by Yotam Perel/LazyMuffin. It follows the adventures of Chocolate Man and Cripple Boy as they attempt to find Chocolate Man's mom, escape from prison, get a date, and more.

List of tropes used in this series:

  • Abusive Parents: It's heavily implied that Miller's mom sexually abused him.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: Chocolate Man and Chocolate Lady.
  • Art Evolution: From relatively crappy in Nameless #2 to quality rivaling that of some professionally-made cartoons.
  • Ax-Crazy: See below.
  • Berserk Button: Don't talk about people having sex with mothers around Miller.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Pretty much everyone except Chocolate Lady to some degree.
  • Depraved Homosexual: Miller (possibly)
  • Domestic Abuse: Cripple Boy. He treats Chocolate Lady like a maid, says he has a surprise for her which turns out to be a Rube-Goldberg-style machine for kicking her into a table, and even cheats on her with a camel.

  • Driven to Suicide: Cripple Boy. He makes Satan cry, so God sends him back to Earth. The girl who loved Cripple Boy, too, after he rejects her.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: The characters' names.
  • Genre-Busting: Possibly because of all the...
  • Genre Shifts: From straight comedy to comedy-drama, then to some sort of crazy wierd romantic-comedy-drama, then back to comedy-drama by the end of the fifth episode.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Chocolate Man and Cripple Boy.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Miller, the "silly-shaped knife killer", many of whose knives look like they would be very hard to use practically.
  • Killed Off for Real: Chocolate Lady, who is stabbed to death by Miller.
  • Knife Nut: Miller, a serial killer who stabs his victims to death with silly-shaped knives.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Cripple Boy, though the lovable part is somewhat debatable later on.

  • Masochist's Meal: "Here! I brought you your Mega-X dinner! Fried-bacon flavored ice cream with a donut glaze! In a bucket! A bucket made of pizza, that is!"
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Averted in that Chocolate Lady actually goes on Cheaters, complete with Joey Grece.
  • Only Sane Man: Chocolate Lady.
  • Scary Black Man: Cripple Boy's black brother. He raped and butchered three babies.
  • Shout-Out
  • Taking the Bullet: Lola Lotion - Chocolate Man's manatee friend - jumps in front of Chocolate Lady when Miller is trying to stab her. Unfortunately, it doesn't work out as planned.
  • Yandere: Miller for Chocolate Man.
    "I will murder him with my knives for you."
