Super Apartment Bros is an animated web series made by Toad King Studios, starring three video game characters sharing an apartment in a pixelated world. It follows the daily misadventures of Griffin; the retired space marine, Igam; the sarcastic mage, and Sophie; the cat-girl ninja-princess. Their landlord is old man Mario, their neighbor is a friendly Koopa Troopa, and Igam may have dated a Cacodemon.

The series began as a Kickstarter and ran from July 8, 2012, to December 3, 2012, with 12 full episodes and an unreleased two-part finale. The show ran with weekyl releases for the season. Additional extras, behind the scenes and clips were also posted outside of the usual release schedule. The episodes were mainly stand alone and not story driven.

Super Apartment Bros provides examples of:

  • Back from the Dead: Both Igam and Sophie have died on screen, but thankfully due to extra lives, they quickly recover and rejoin the party.
  • Catchphrase:
    • Igam: "That's what she said!"
  • Cheat Code: Sophie uses the Konami code to get into the basement ahead of Igam during "The Bet" episode.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: The episode thumbnails are color-coded to represent the different video content.
    • Orange = Full episode.
    • Blue = Clip.
    • Green = Music video.
    • Red = Bloopers/Behind the Scenes.
    • Purple = Full season.
    • Light Blue = Update.
  • Comically Missing the Point: A lot of Griffin's sarcasm goes right over Igam's head.
  • The Cameo: At the "Missing No" pledge level and beyond, Kickstarter backers got sprites made of themselves and appear as background characters in "SAB JAM." Various other fan made sprites were used as background crowds in the same episode.
  • The Couch: Used as the main set piece in the original trailer, many of the episodes revolve around the blue couch that faces directly into the audience; presumably in front of the tv.
  • Crossover: Sensei Knows Best was created as a reward for the “The Crossover” pledge level. Sensei and Samurai Slim were based on characters of Elijah Powell of Tutorial Dojo.
  • Limited Wardrobe: The characters rarely change outfits throughout the series for the same reason most real video game characters never change their outfits: budget.
