The Frollo Show is a series on YouTube by Chincherrinas, starring the misadventures of perverted pyromaniac Frollo, from Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame. In these misadventures, he's usually accompanied by Gaston, from Beauty and the Beast, and Panty and Stocking. In his way are various villains, from Hitler to Hades. There's also characters based off foreign dubbed characters, such as a German Frollo and an Arab Gaston. A playlist of all the episodes can be found here, while chincherrinas' YouTube channel is found here. The series concluded with the 21st and final episode, "Frollo Finally Does It (Last Story)", which was released on January 19, 2020.

The creator is also behind Smash Bros. Lawl.

"These tropes taste like piss!"

  • Actor Allusion: Characters sometimes say lines that were said by their voice actor on different roles, most evident with Frollo, as he sometimes says Megabyte's and Chairface's lines in Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita.
  • A Date with Rosie Palms:
    • Frollo, to a fireman calendar. In the first episode, no less. It comes in handy later.
    • Advertisement:
    • Implied with Hades, to the demon minion sisters stripping in Frollo Misses His Mother.
  • Alike and Antithetical Adversaries: Heterogeneous Heroes vs. Heterogeneous Villains. Both sides have a variety of characters of different backgrounds, such as French, Japanese, Germans, Mexicans, Americans, Arabians, Greek, Russians...
  • All for Nothing: Despite their best efforts nothing the heroes, or villains, do ultimately matters thanks to Ronald simply capturing everyone in a game cartridge revealed to be a new multiverse
  • Always Close: In Frollo's perspective of Frollo Finally Does It, Frollo tries to escape into a portal while his legs are broken when three Wilford Brimley copies approach him. One clone catches up to him, but he escapes just in time.
  • Anachronism Stew: France still remains the same as it did in the movie, but a few modern elements such as OXXO stores, TVs and PCs (as fireplaces), and pop singers show up. Almost everywhere else takes place in (our) present times.
  • And This Is for...: Parodied when Frollo is about to kill Jafar. Unfortunately, he takes too long and allows Jafar to turn the tables, forcing Stocking to save him.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Jafar gets distracted by fishing hook in his battle with Frollo.
  • Badass Boast: God!Wilford gets two magnificent ones in Frollo Gets flashed by a Gothic Lolita.
    God!Wilford: The people out here, looking at me...Glad to see you! Ladies and Gentlemen...I'm perfect. That's what they say: Thanks for your time. Now I'm doing this without help.
    • Then, later on:
    God!Wilford: I'm Love! I'm Life!
  • Bash Brothers: Frollo and Gaston.
  • Berserk Button: Don't eat sugary food in front of Wilford Brimley... or call him an old fart.
    • Don't make jokes about Marco Antonio Regil's cock, either.
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • In Frollo Reads Mein Kampf Frollo's Russian cousin Dmitri Frollo shows up just in time to stop Hitler.
    • In Frollo Misses his Mother Hans Frollo saves Frollo and Gaston from Scanty and Kneesocks in the Underworld.
    • In Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents Ayumu saves Frollo from Junior.
    • Later Stocking saves Frollo from Jafar's incredibly slow Fireball at the last second.
    • Virtually all of Frollo and Gaston's friends come to save them from Genie Jafar, then later from Marco Antonio Regil.
    • Almost all of Frollo's friends are about to fight Stocking and the others at the end of Frollo Celebrates his Birthday.
    • In Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita, Adal Ramones' comeback has him saving Maussan from Scanty. It even gets lampshaded.
  • Big Damn Movie:
    • Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents, in which Frollo, Gaston and Panty must survive a zombie apocalypse caused by Achmed Frollo consists of five parts. Combined, it has a length of almost an hour. Not bad for a series where episodes tend to last less than ten minutes.
    • Also, Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita, which features a big battle featuring almost every character who has appeared in the show as of its uploading. It's even longer than Beats Up Evil Residents.
  • Big "NO!": Frollo lets one out when Jafar shoots a slow-moving projectile at him. This is based off of a scene in Austin Powers.
  • Big "YES!":
    • Spoofed when the Arabian version of M. Bison is watching Jafar battle Frollo and Stocking.
    • Gaston and M. Bison each use one as a weapon against the other, at the same time. Also Batiatus who uses one twice and an "of course" to the dismay of M. Bison who angrily shouts "MY CREATIONS!" (an obvious allude to the Street Fighter cartoon and the movie of which each respectively belongs to his appropriate version).
  • Birthday Episode: Frollo Celebrities His Birthday. Obviously However it didn’t go exactly the way as anyone planned.
  • Bilingual Dialogue: Or even tri-lingual, people are speaking in their own languages, yet the language barrier poses no problem. Though Frollo claims to legitimately be learning German, and Hans Frollo does really speak English sometimes.
  • Bizarrchitecture: Frollo's "house" is somehow both The Palace of Justice and The Notre Dame Cathedral, both inside and out. The large empty room with his iconic fireplace is the most commonly seen, yet the rooftop is usually depicted as the Cathedral's.
  • Black-and-Gray Morality: Most of the characters flip morality left and right, but usually staying bitter, rude, neutral individuals. The show's main protagonist is Disney's most vicious villain, along with being childish, extremely lustful, traitorous, manipulative and brutish in the actual show.
  • Black Comedy Rape: Frollo falls victim to this trope after Stocking gets tired of him rejecting her.
  • Blade Lock: Aya against Mormon Jesus, though blades are substituted with a chainsaw against a lightsaber.
  • Bolt of Divine Retribution: Maria must be recognizing that Frollo is becoming a better man, since she does end up protecting him against Jupiter's Cock.
  • Boss Arena Idiocy: Invoked in Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents. During the final boss fight, Achmed Frollo tries to kill Frollo by throwing poison vials at him...which turn out to be shatterproof and are explicitly labeled as being poisonous to snakes...like the one Jafar just turned into.
  • Brawler Lock: Occurs with Bison and Hades resisting each other's attacks until Ronald McDonald breaks up their fight.
  • Break the Cutie: Madotsuki gets broken a lot during Frollo's birthday party, and she's already a broken cutie to begin with. In fact, because Wilford's world is created from her sadness, she has to be depressed in order to help the heroes fight Wilford, which means more breaking.
  • Breather Episode: The PIT-y Crew episode of Frollo Finally Does It comes right after Frollo's own sub-episode, which was easily the darkest in the series. While the PIT-y Crew's own adventure is fairly dark, they ultimately end up fighting a Breather Boss and end up with more allies than they had to begin with.
  • Brick Joke: When counting Leonidas' gold, Anakaris counts correctly to three, then adds in seven because of his ditziness. "1-2-3-7" is the password used to enter the front door to Frollo's palace.
  • Bros Before Hoes: The Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents story arc begins with Frollo and Gaston fighting over Panty, until Bleemo sings a song and gets the two of them to reconcile. They fist-bump and Frollo says, "Bros before hoes!"
  • Call-Back: The fireman calendar from Episode 1 later appears in a trash bin in Episode 14.
  • Captive Audience: In Friends Story, Wilford Brimley teleports the friends team to a theater playing "The Wilford Brimley Show". Every friends is forced on their seats by a pair of Wilford arms, which can't be destroyed because of their Healing Factor.
  • Cerebus Retcon: The entire cosmos being a cartridge inside the "Universo 64" isn't so funny anymore after Ronald destroys it.
  • Cerebus Syndrome: Definitely became more action packed ever since the first episode, and even more serious after Frollo Gets AIDS in that they're less Youtube Poop and more story-driven. Then we got to 'Frollo Gets Flashed By A Gothic Lolita... and at least 1/3 of the cast got killed off.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Gaston, in his own words:
    Gaston: No one takes cheap shots like Gaston!
  • Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are: Quoted word-for-word by Frollo when trying to find Wilford.
    Frollo: If it's cat-and-mouse, maybe we need some cheese!
    Hitler: He's literally toying with us...
  • Convection Schmonvection: Averted at one point, where Frollo is charging up for a huge fireball attack together with Bleemo. When Dmitri Frollo makes the mistake of assuming this is his chance to close in for a melee attack, he gets half of his face melted off by the hot air.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Frollo and Gaston don't last long against Scanty and Kneesocks.
    • Stocking easily defeats Jafar after telling him that she was letting him win.
    • Frollo defeats Best Hercules with one punch in Frollo Fucks the Gods.
    • Super Sayian Unknown Lv. Frollo utterly destroys Genie!Jafar with one kick of his foot.
  • A Day in the Limelight:
    • Hitler is the star of Frollo Gets Interrupted by Hitler, as the title says.
    • The PITy story of Frollo Finally Does It is this to the characters that were KO'd.
  • Deader Than Dead:
    • Falling into the Sea of Darkness kills you permanently.
    • Try to escape from Hell without a spring and the Hell Guards will devour your soul.
  • Death Is Cheap: The key to coming back to life is to simply take a spring out of the afterlife... Until Hades takes it out and Corset replaces it with a spike.
    • Or use the car keys that Corset has.
    • Or drink Sol with Hades.
    • However, falling into the Sea of Darkness or getting your soul devoured by the Hell Guards kills you for eternity.
  • Deus Exit Machina: As soon as they are introduced, the keys to the underworld get slapped away by Tommy Wiseau to ensure no villain comes Back from the Dead.
  • Deliberately Monochrome: The part where Frollo and Gaston do forced labor in Frollo Gets AIDS is black and white.
  • Description Cut: When Irene rounds up the allies to enter Wilford's dimension, she states that Mormon Jesus "remains locked for the greater good". The camera pans towards Frollo's game room, where it shows that Mormon Jesus escaped from his prison.
  • Destination Defenestration: Especially common in Frollo Gets Flashed By A Gothic Lolita. To the point where the final question asks you in what order the windows got broken.
  • Discredited Meme: Invoked and lampshaded; one of Hell's rules reads "Thou shall not use memes from 9gag."
  • Disproportionate Retribution: After Frollo and Gaston start making fun of Marco, he goes on a brutal rampage, attacking Frollo with magic letters and a ball made out of the Mexican public, and then crushing Gaston with the scoring wheel.
  • Disney Villain Death: Yusuf, unsurprisingly.
    • Inverted literally and figuratively: Frollo and Gaston come back to life and fall upwards.
    • Subverted with Hitler in his debut episode.
    • Also subverted with Corset when Tommy Wiseau pushes him out a window and the latter falls with him. They land, and Corset laughs it off. This is subverted again when he realizes that Wiseau placed them in the spot where part of the cathedral that Wiseau sliced off would land and impale both of them.
  • Downer Beginning:
    • Subverted in Frollo is Too Young. Frollo is initially upset that Panty fucked a random cop at the end of the previous episode, until Consome Panchi cheers him up.
    • Played straight in Frollo Sees Dead People, which picks up on the Downer Ending below before getting back to comedy.
    • The second part of Frollo Finally Does It picks up on the Downer Ending from the first part.
  • Downer Ending:
  • Dramedy: In the earlier episodes, no, since they tend to focus on the more comedic and random YouTube Poop elements. It starts showing shades of this in the Story Era episodes, but there's still more comedy that overshadows the darker moments. By the time of Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita, it's played completely straight, with death scenes that are played seriously and little humor.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: Well...sort of. Frollo daydreams that on his birthday, Gaston will say, "This is the day your dreams come true, Frollo," followed by Panty coming out of a giant birthday cake and saying, "Time to put the happy in happy birthday!" This fantasy comes true in the next episode... until it turns out THAT was also a dream.
  • Drinking Game: Haruhi proposes one with Jaime Maussan and Tommy Wiseau when guessing if the extraterrestrial evidence provided is real or fake, and the one who guesses wrong must take five Cuba Libre shots instead of two. When being showed evidence of a penguin on a tree, Maussan guesses wrong.
    Wiseau: He's cranky today. *laughs*
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The first few episodes are much more reminiscent of YouTube Poop, with a Random Events Plot, as opposed to the fairly storyline-heavy later episodes.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Wilfyas, a mix between Wilford Brimley and Giygas.
    • He lost this form, and got a more dangerous form...one we don't see...yet. And as that form, he can create other Eldritch Abominations at will.
  • Eldritch Location: Wilford's dimension, or the Wilfmension, created from absorbing Madotsuki's depression. Because the realm synchronizes with her feelings, this technically makes her the second owner of the place.
    • After his ascension to godhood, he mutated Paris with his parasitic body parts. No citizens are found anywhere.
  • Establishing Character Moment: In a case where the character is already introduced, but the moment is to show the change that the character had. Frollo killing the Irate Gamer, then ordering the vampires like a Big Bad would to his minions right after saving a brutally beaten Panty shows that he's not fucking around, at least not anymore.
  • Everybody Hates Hades: Or at least wants to play practical jokes on or around him.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: In the Frollo-centric finale of Frollo Finally Does It, Ronald McDonald tries to break Frollo's spirit by, among other things, showing his friends beaten at the hands of Wilford Brimley. Frollo is appropriately horrified and just starting to go into a Heroic BSoD until he gets a vision of Gaston, Panty, and Stocking cheering him on. This causes Frollo to turn into his SSJ Unknown form. Ronald is shocked and demands to know why Frollo would be willing to fight for his friends after they abandoned him with an unspoken What the Hell, Hero? moment, only for Frollo to promptly kick him away and fly off to the rescue.
  • Evil Knockoff: Frollo encounters twisted versions of his allies in a pocket dimension.
  • Eye Scream: Happens to Hans Frollo with an arrow during being killed by Gaston.
  • Fartillery: How Frollo, Gaston, Guile, and M. Bison all leave the coliseum and return to the present.
  • Firemen Are Hot: Weaponized by Frollo himself in the pilot episode, aptly titled "Frollo Faps to a Firefighters' Calendar". Because his house is on fire, viewers think Frollo will actually call the firemen to put it out—but instead, in a sort of Bait-and-Switch Comment, Frollo whips out a fireman calendar and starts fapping to it. His cum promptly puts out the fire.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: They started as enemies, but Guile and M. Bison think of Frollo and Gaston as friends.
  • Five-Man Band: The PITy Crew seems to have formed this:
  • Foreshadowing:
    • In "Frollo Fucks The Gods", during a transition to the Underworld, we see among the stuff buried underground what is clearly Lagann. Frollo and Gaston defeat Batiatus via their own version of the Giga Drill Breaker.
    • Irene and her gang notice a plane in the sky, thinking that the survivor has high-tech weapons, including a Laser Blade. That survivor has one, indeed, and he's not afraid to fight the team with it.
      Irene: Told you he has one!
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: Chincherrinas is fond of putting in messages that are only visible for a fraction of a second.
    • A more traditional example is the list of RRRRURUS that Frollo and Gaston are expected to follow in the Underworld.
    • In Frollo Has A Bad Feeling, at approximately 14:48, there is one when Batiatus starts yelling at Scanty.
  • Fridge Horror: In-universe.
    Gaston (singing): When I was a lad I didn't know what Frollo was singing. And now that I'm grown, I'm like 'AAAAHHHH'! Frollo is a perv!
  • Funny Background Event:
    • When Gaston runs away from Quasimodo and Clopin pole dancing, some guy is walking around, glowing in rainbow colors. (That's actually "El Hombre Multicolor Gay" by Morfo from the Youtube Channel Morfologico.)
    • A lot of these occur in Frollo Celebrates His Birthday during the party scenes.
  • Gag Penis: Gaston's member often reaches absolutely ludicrous sizes. (Enough, for instance, to snake through sewers and anally rape Panty while she's sitting on the toilet).
    • In Frollo Fucks The Gods, "JUPITER'S COCK!"
    • Played for drama, of all things, in Frollo Gets Flashed By A Gothic Lolita when God!Wilford Brimley attempts to "breed" with Panty.
  • Gainax Ending: Last Story goes all-in on this trope, with an ending heavily inspired by the trope codifier, Neon Genesis Evangelion, with its Stinger being from its Spirtual Successor, Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Not only that, but it's implied that, while The Frollo Show is over, the story isn't, as Madotsuki slips away into the darkness...and Homura Akemi can be spotted menacingly emerging from the mist. Also, Ronald still has another cartridge.
  • Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: Demiteri gets very excited when Panty drunkenly makes out with Haruhi at his birthday party.
  • Going Through the Motions: Rare, non-video game example. Given how the series' visual style is similar to that of Youtube Poop, characters normally go through animations from their original works, but in new environments.
  • Gorn: A lot of examples to count. It's notable that everyone have realistic blood and organs, even animated characters.
  • Gory Discretion Shot:
    • Played horrifically straight with Ib as she's beaten up to death by Batiatus.
    • The Wilford clones corner Fegelein and proceed to feast on his corpse while Mephiles watches. It was actually a dummy set up by the real Fegelein for a part of his and Mephiles' antics.
    • We don't see Stocking gets impaled by Madotsuki in Last Story
  • Groin Attack:
    • Gaston gives Frollo one when he realizes what Frollo's Villain Song was actually about.
    • Tommy Wiseau takes an arrow to the balls because Lisa won't pay ransom for the terrorists. They eventually get the money through Denny.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Tommy Wiseau sacrifices himself to defeat Corset and stop him from reviving the villains when they get killed.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard
    • Achmed Frollo and Gwonam ultimately meet their fate at the hands of their zombies.
    • Corset suggested to Hades about implementing a giant spike at the place where dead people would fall on so that they'd be in an endless recursion of death. This bites him in the ass when he gets killed and is send to fall on the spikes once Tommy Wiseau smacks away the keys to get out of the Underworld.
  • Hope Spot: Hans Frollo avoids the spike at Hell's entrance... only to be devoured for good by the Hell Guards.
  • Hostile Show Takeover:
    • The angel sisters try this after Frollo and Gaston die, and then Wilford Brimley tries to take it from them.
    • When Yzma and Kronk revert Frollo to his college age so that he'll be young enough for Lemongrab to come in and take over the show. Lemongrab proceeds to turn the show into a banal review show where he shows the poster for a movie or TV show or the cover for a video game, and shouts either "UNACCEPTABLE!" or "ACCEPTABLE!", and nothing else, prompting Frollo to seek out Yzma and Kronk to return to his normal age.
  • Hypocritical Humor: An Arabian version of Mama Luigi attempts to join Achmed Frollo's brotherhood. In response, he calls him a racially insensitive character. Ironically, Mama Lutfi becomes an Arabian counter stereotype when he fights against the terrorists instead of helping them.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Evil Marie, thanks to a Megaton Punch from Ayumu.
  • Ironic Echo: Batiatus quotes some of M. Bison's memetic lines after beating him up. Much to the latter's anger.
  • It's Easy, So It Sucks!: Invoked. After Frollo and Stocking easily defeat Jafar, the Irate Gamer comes in and wishes if the battle was more of a challenge. The Game Genie overhears this and grants his wish.
  • It Tastes Like Feet: When Gaston is offered Sol beer by Frollo, he says it tastes like piss.
  • Joke Character: Deconstructed when the Frollo Show focuses on what the people that were trapped in the PITy, a collection of comic relief characters, were doing. After Bleemo tells them how the party ended, a couple of people wanted to help fight Wilford Brimley, but Irene points out that they can't, since they were too weak to even fight during the birthday fight, let alone an Eldritch Abomination. Eventually, it becomes Reconstruction when they manage to defeat Mormon Jesus with the help of some people they freed from his control.
  • Just Toying with Them: Discussed when Hitler says this in regards to Wilford building a bridge to his realm for all to follow, stating if he wasn't, they'd all be dead. Though it's later revealed that Wilford had a reason to not kill them on the spot.
  • Karmic Death: Lisa lets the terrorists shoot Tommy Wiseau in the balls with an arrow. Later when she became a zombie in the apocalypse, Tommy kills her with a chainsaw.
  • Killed Off for Real:
    • In one scene, we see Lefou's mangled corpse in Frollo's House. Later, in the Underworld, we see Lefou landing in the sea of Darkness, which states that if any character lands there, they're finished off for real.
    • Hans Frollo has his soul consumed by the Hell Guards, which would indicate he has suffered a similar fate as well.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Subverted for LeFou. Sure, he accidentally killed Gaston by wrapping a belt around his neck that he surprisingly couldn't break, and caused the events that led to the Anti-Poop Revolt episodes that caused a shift in tone from Youtube Poop to a more story-driven show, but he isn't a dark or serious person. Played straight for several members of Los no Frollos, such as Frollo's Arabian cousin, Marco Antonio Regil, Batiatus, and Wilford Brimley.
  • Kudzu Plot: The series eventually develops into this as it ends with a bunch of questions unanswered such as the fate of certain characters.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Frollo has Lefou shit on Hades' face in the Underworld. Several episodes later, a warped version of Hades prepares to throw shit on Frollo's face to repay the favor, until Ronald arrives to save Frollo.
  • Left the Background Music On: At the beginning of Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita, Kneesocks falls on a radio playing the Hellfire Kingdom Hearts rendition, breaking it and leaving a Freeze-Frame Bonus.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Madotsuki is pissed when she sees Batiatus laying the smackdown on Ib. Cue Madotsuki opening a can of whoopass on Batiatus, which sadly isn't enough to defeat him. Luckily, Stocking is just as mad with Batiatus as Madotsuki is.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: The series has garnered quite an extensive cast. Frollo Has A Bad Feeling is the best example, featuring many recurring characters and even adding new characters in that very video. Some of them are even imported from Leet Fighters.
  • Love Triangle: Stocking loves Frollo, but he loves (or lusts for) her sister instead. Eventually, her love for him leads her to help the Los No Frollos, though only to minimize casualties.
  • Manipulative Editing: How most dialogue is handled, the rest being Fun with Subtitles. Notably, the author has picked up a clever trick of using images and lines from other roles of a character's author to give them more diversity.
  • Memetic Hand Gesture: One character idoing a thumbs-up, and their closest companionraising their arms. Its called "The Bros Pose".
  • Mind Screw: Every moments where Ronald tries to manipulate someone can be very confusing.
  • Mood Whiplash: Especially in Frollo Gets Flashed By A Gothic Lolita, which frequently jumps between tragic death scenes, comedy and action, or comedy within tragic death scenes.
  • Multiple Endings: In 'Frollo Gets Flashed By A Gothic Lolita' there are different endings depending on the answers gave to Stocking's quiz. The common ending has Frollo being sent to the Pit-y. Once you get the 'windows broken' question, you can get the different weird endings that reveal part of the lore.
  • Mundane Made Awesome:
    Hitler (reaching out for some spinach puffs): I'm an expert at reaching out for things! Hell yeah!
  • Narm: Weaponized in-universe. The Garbage Guy's Garbage Blaster shoots out some laughable scenes from various media, ranging from the "Oh God Oh Man" guy or Dante's infamous "LIIIIGHHT!!!" scene.
  • Never Trust a Trailer: The promo for Last Story shows a scene where the PI Ty crew is walking into a gray version of Wilford's dimension, with an apartment that looks like Madotsuki's and some cathedrals and a scene where Frollo is looking a Notredame, while looking worried. None of this happens in the episode.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown:
    • Ronald McDonald on Pantyin Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita.
    • Batiatus delivers a fatal one to Ib in the same episode. This quickly gets him killed by Stocking, who is appalled at his actions.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Zigzagged. Episode titles can have nothing to do with the plot, summarize the plot, or anywhere in between.
  • Not Quite Dead:
    • Achmed Frollo and Jafar are revealed to be still alive at the end of Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents.
    • Marco Antonio Regil does this twice.
  • N-Word Privileges: Half-meta example. During the scene when the Arabian Bros send Gazeem into the Cave of Wonders, Gazeen is rewritten as a "Mexican thief" in the descriptive subtitles. In a split second, there's a "correction" in red text noting the title "Mexican thief" to be "redundant." Though this is fairly racist, the fact that The Frollo Show's creator, Chincherrinas, is from Mexico slightly lessens the offensiveness of the joke.
  • Off with His Head!:
  • Oh, Crap!: Several:
    • Frollo darts away when Wilford's eyes turn red.
    • The remaining members of Los no Frollos get a huge one when Wilford reveals his true colors to them (except Lemongrab, who has the balls to call him out).
    • Fegelein accidentally triggers Madotsuki's emotions, causing the entire Wilfmension to shift to grayscale.
      Lemongrab: Holy crap, this is insane!
    • Frollo encountering three Wilford clones as his legs are pinned by a boulder, with no means to defend himself.
    • Best Hercules freaking out when Mormon Jesus takes Demitri and Morrigan by surprise.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted, there is two character named Hans: Hans Frollo and Hans Krebs.
  • One-Winged Angel: Several characters can tranform to become more powerful.
  • Overly Long Gag:
    • "IT'S NO USE! TAKE THIS!" Even Achmed Frollo gets tired of Jafar goofing off.
    Achmed Frollo: Stop behaving like a badly programmed AI!
    • "We will take care of the bugs... one by one by one by one..."
  • The Password Is Always "Swordfish": The password for accessing anything in Frollo's home is always "I like cheese".
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: The terrorists, at first. Originally they were playing Mario Kart 64 before deciding to launch a Zombie Apocalypse after getting money from holding Tommy Wiseau for ransom. Of course, they didn't kidnap Tommy, he came to them so he could play as well.
  • Playing Tennis with the Boss: Frollo and Marco. With a ball of people from the Mexican Republic.
  • Pyromaniac: Frollo burns down several people, and regularly threatens to burn down all of Paris (well, Paris Hilton in that case).
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!:
    Reggie Fils-Aime: (while clapping to the beat) Play. The. Game.
  • Quizzical Tilt: Almost every friends tilt their heads when Gaston leave the party in Friends Story.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: It's hard to explain how Frollo made friends with a lot of quirky strangers. This is lampshaded in Frollo Fucks the Gods.
    Kneesocks: Back there (in time), he won't be able to contact his random friends.
  • Really Dead Montage: Achmed Frollo has one when Yusuf dies.
  • Re-Cut: The Frollo Cut, which condenses the first five episodes into one episode containing the information relevant for future episodes.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Wilford Brimley's eyes turn red when he's using his demonic energy to attack.
  • Reference Over Dosed: The large ensemble of characters would qualify alone, but that's not getting to the amount of Shout Outs.
  • Replacement Scrappy: In-Universe. Replacement Scrappy: Parodied when the Jew Producer decides to replace Gaston on the Frollo Show with Ashton Kutcher after his death.
  • Running Gag: there are a lot of foreign cousins of the main characters. Frollo even has one in the North Pole.
  • Sarcastic Confession: An implied offscreen example. When When Wilford Brimley becomes The Starscream and enacts his own evil plan, Hitler admits he actually told him about it first, but dismissed it as the ramblings of a senile old man.
  • Scaled Up: Jafar, like in the film, as well as Yusuf, complete with his own turban.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!:
    • After being enslaved by Josef Stalin and Dmitri Frollo, Frollo decides to leave his life of forced labor and visit Daten City in Frollo Gets AIDS. Gaston in contrast decides to fight back against the Communists...which results in them doing this trope themselves.
    • Ayumu leaves Frollo's side during Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents due to his weakness against clowns.
  • Sequel Hook: The cartridge Ronald absorbs everybody into before destroying the Frollo Show's old cartridge is most likely this.
  • Shout-Out: With its own page.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!:
    • Hades gives Kneesocks a friendly fire version—even as her boss, he gets sick of hearing her rant about the rules.
    • Frollo delivers one to Ronald McDonald after the latter calls him out for trying to side with his friends that betrayed him.
  • Signature Sound Effect: The "Key Get" sound effect from Luigi's Mansion, usually accompanied with the Bros Pose.
  • Sinister Scimitar: Achmed Frollo and Gwonam try to use some on Frollo.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: A lot of characters don't have clean mouths, but Batiatus really takes the cake.
    Batiatus: And yet you come here trying to fuck me like a whore, but I will not be... fucked! I will not, not be fucked, you fucking cock-sucking, you fucking hemorrhoid-sucking fuck, you fuck!
  • Sleeps with Everyone but You: Frollo is on the wrong end of this trope with Panty.
  • Special Guest/The Cameo: Many, check this page.
  • Split-Screen Phone Call: Happen between Frollo and Jack Bauer in Frollo saves the World.
  • Squick: In-Universe. Gaston does not appreciate Quasimodo and Clopin's pole dancing routine.
    • Then there's the other terrorists getting creeped out when Jafar hits on Zombie!Panty.
  • Take That!:
    • To The Irate Gamer, multiple times.
    • For the entire time Lemongrab was in charge of the show, he was pointing out various things as being unacceptable compared to other versions that have been better received by most, which includes The Irate Gamer.
    • Fred: the Movie was the first movie to star then Youtube-phenomenon Fred. As witnessed by Lemongrab, reactions were less than pleasant.
    • There's also one towards Two and a Half Men. After Gaston's death, Frollo is told that his show will now have Ashton Kutcher for his sidekick. He promptly jumps to his death.
    • See the jab towards 9gag above.
    • This gem in Frollo has a Bad Feeling:
      Corset: You people are acting like a YouTube fanbase... stop whining and do something about it!
  • Take That, Audience!: One against fans of Chincherrinas' other serie, one of the Hell's rurus is "Thou shall not suggest stupid characters for SBL.
  • Talk to the Fist: Gaston's preferred method of disposing of annoyances. Used to best effect in a showdown of the Dozens against Frollo.
  • The Team: Since Frollo's and Irene's respective teams are too huge for Five Man Bands.
  • Tears of Blood: During Frollo's dream in Frollo Celebrates his Birthday, Stocking stabs Frollo from behind. A drop of his blood lands on a box of Gorilla Munch, right below the gorilla's eye in the shape of a tear.
  • Teleport Interdiction: Frollo try to teleport to not get crushed by th Wilford Octopus but he is brought back to his original spot with a text box saying "TELEPORT HAS BEEN DISABLED!
  • Teleport Spam: One of Frollo's abilities.
  • Tempting Fate:
    • After Kronk pushes Yzma out of the hole she created, Demitri and Morrigan stumble into the scene. The former says that he thinks they lost their enemies, said seconds before a reawakened Lemongrab startles them and makes them fall out of the same hole, right into the PITy.
    • Pyron, upon entering his ship: "Ah, home sweet home! It's good to be back where things are normal!" The top half of Jafar's decapitated body comes flying towards the ship, destroying it and killing both characters.
  • Theme Music Power-Up: In Frollo Misses His Mother, Frollo and Gaston take a cue from Panty and Stocking and start pole dancing to their song.
  • This Banana is Armed: Gaston knocks out a clerk with a banana when he and Frollo steal beans from a local store.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!:
    Frollo: Bring it, bitches.
    • Kronk gets a good one when fighting a Wilford clone: "Bring it on, bitch!"
  • Together in Death: Several characters go through this in Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita. Dmitri and Stalin, Garry and Ib, Jafar and his staff. Tommy Wiseau notes this and says that the Underworld is a better place.
  • Toilet Humor:
    • Frollo makes Lefou shit on Hades' face when they are in hell.
    • In Frollo fucks the Gods, Frollo, Gaston, Guile and Bison eat beans to make a fart strong enough to propell them to a vortex that takes them back to the present.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Everyone in Frollo Gets Flashed By a Gothic Lolita. Except for Pyron.
  • Troll: Frollo and Gaston act like this the whole time they're on the game show in Frollo Enters a Mexican Contest, as well as during their entire stay in the Underworld.
    • Mephiles and Fegelein.
  • True Final Boss
    • Frollo and Stocking finally defeat Umlaut, Jafar, Snake Jafar, Snake Yusuf, Gwonam, Achmed Frollo, and Umlaut again. But once Frollo dismisses Stocking's affection yet again, she wishes that he would get fucked. Wish granted. Enter Genie Jafar, a suped-up incarnation of the evil Arabian sorcerer complete with phenominal cosmic power.
    • Happens again when Wilford Brimley gets to a higher state of power through Madotsuki's sorrow, abducts Panty and threatens the world so much that even Frollo's enemies are willing to put their aggressions aside.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Frollo's cousins in different countries look exactly like him, only with different hats. Gaston and several other characters also have cousins like this.
  • Uncertain Doom: What exactly happened to Wilford after he absorbed Madotsuki's sorrow for a second time?
  • Unexplained Recovery: Happens to Frollo three time with the two first two being retconned in The Frollo Cut. A later episode reveals he made good friends with Hades, who got him out.
  • Unreadably Fast Text: Done in Frollo Finally Does It when information is scanned on Bleemo. For the curious: 
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Because LeFou accidentally killed Gaston, this led to nearly all the events in the story era happening. To go into depth, his killing of Gaston led to the staff replacing him with Ashton Kutcher, which led to Frollo committing suicide, which led to the three (LeFou also killed himself) landing in the underworld where they get out using a spring from Gaston. Frollo's Arabian cousin then jumps onto the spring and he's back to life, and then he proceeds to turn all of Paris into a zombie carnival.
  • Unwitting Pawn: A case where both heroes and villains end up being unwitting pawns to another villain. Wilford Brimley only joined Los no Frollos for his plan to ascend into godhood, pulling strings behind the scenes, tricking Batiatus into murdering Ib and Garry to make Madotsuki sadder, and manipulating Madotsuki into trapping him in her dreams to steal her powers. Only Hitler seemed to know about his plans, which he dismissed as "old man talk".
  • Villains Out Shopping: Most scenes. When not being antagonists, Frollo and Gaston are doing completely random stuff.
  • Villainous Rescue: In "Frollo Finally Does It - Frollo Story" Frollo is saved by none other than Ronald McDonald, who tries to convince Frollo to see things his way. Frollo listens to Ronald for a while, but kicks him away when he tries to turn him against his friends.
  • Villain Song: Achmed Frollo sings to his cousin, telling him how the Frollo family is the superior race, and that they should team up in order to perfect the world.
  • Villain Teamup: Frollo has a Bad Feeling. Notable that it includes all, and we do mean all of the previous villains, and a few new ones too, such as Best Hercules, The Irate Gamer, Corset and Stocking. Though it remains stable for the most part, one of them inevitably betrays the group.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Frollo and Gaston.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Giant snakes are weak against snake poison and Samuel L. Jackson.
  • We Can Rule Together: Achmed Frollo attempts to persuade Frollo to his side by reminding him that he is family...but fails to do so, possibly due to the fact that he says that he'll also get to rape Panty.
    • Which doubles as What You Are in the Dark, no matter how lustful he (and she) is and how much he desires Panty, he refuses to have a non-consensual relationship with her. Initally, it could have been possibly interpreted as being just her being a zombie, but he later refuses Ronald Mc Donald's offer of letting him rape Panty whilst she is barely conscious, thus debunking it.
  • Wham Episode: Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita is pretty much one gigantic battle with people dying left and right, though the real shock comes in that Wilford Brimley ascended to a higher state of power and becomes the True Final Boss with Panty as hostage and forcing the Los No Frollos to join forces with Frollo's group.
  • Wham Line: In Frollo has a Bad Feeling.
    Stocking: I'm not here to fight. I'm here to help.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Stocking calls out Frollo for being childish, hypocritical, and downright traitorous throughout his previous misadventures. Right after that episode, he gets called out again for abusing Madotsuki and mercy killing the Earl of Lemongrab, though in a more metaphorical fashion, with his entire team ditching him and leaving behind the Earl's corpse buried with a marked stone saying "Here lies a true hero."
    • The second instance above is actually subverted in the Friends story. It turns out they were totally understanding of Frollo's Mercy Kill of Lemongrab and held no ill will toward him for it. However, Wilford's dimension hit Frollo with a massive Mind Screw that left him completely oblivious to their presence and caused him to block out any attempts by his allies to get his attention. They only moved on when it was clear they had no way of stopping him from wandering off, and only marked Lemongrab's grave out of respect for him rather than a dig at Frollo's dickishness.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy:
    Silver: There must be a switch for the door around here!
    Irene: Naaahh... this ain't a stupid video game. Yet I feel our solution will be equally stupid...
  • You Are Not Alone/True Companions: Frollo's speech to Madotsuki in Frollo Finally Does It.
  • You Can Say That Again: Mephiles becomes a victim of this trope in Frollo Celebrates his Birthday.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: The Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents story arc features terrorists unleashing zombies and clowns.

"Colonel William Guile... and Bison. The greatest friends in the world live in an apartment. And together, they will be amazing! LEET FIGHTERS!"
The opening narration

Leet Fighters is a spin-off of The Frollo Show, starring Guile and M. Bison of the Street Fighter cartoon. Unlike in the original show where the two are enemies, they are portrayed as bros and get into wacky shenanigans. The series coincides with the events of The Frollo Show.

"And together, they will be amazing! LEET TROPERS!"

  • Actor Allusion: Lines from the Double Dragon cartoon can be heard in Leet Fighters 6. Bison also quotes some of Pyron's and Rhinox's lines on some occasions.
  • Alliterative Name: Every episode title. "Pickle Pizza Pilot", "Xbro Xtrabraganza", "Screwing School", "Daten Date", "Conflictive Contest", "Daring Death", and "Mojado Mexican".
  • And This Is for...:
    Guile: This is for my lunch money!
  • Bait-and-Switch Boss: While in Hell Guile and Bison accidentally free Hans Frollo from a containment cell. Hans then proceeds to break open the cell next to him revealing none other than Konata who the two had previously killed and eaten on a pizza. She explains to them how she desires revenge, and begins to power up... Only to Ronald McDonald to appear right behind her and break her neck, before he begins to transform. Luckily, Guile and Bison make a quick escape and avoid the battle.
    • In episode 7 Konata reappears, ready to take her vengeance against the duo. She's quickly taken out yet again - albeit accidentally - this time by Mormon Jesus, who is then defeated by T. Hawk. Luckily, he's friendly.
  • Big "WHAT?!": In episode 5, Cobra Commander utters this when he and Destro find FACE instead of the Irate Gamer, during a game where the contestants are supposed to find Bores to win.
  • Black Comedy Cannibalism: At the end of the first episode, Guile makes Pizza out of Konata and her friends, this is all played for laugh.
  • Call-Back: Konata never forgets what happened to her in the first episode.
  • Casting Gag: An unintentional case in episode 7 of Leet Fighters, Mephiles is seen playing a game of Yu-Gi-Oh! with Guile. The English voice actor of Mephiles is, naturally, Dan Green, who also voiced Yami Yugi in that show.
  • Companion Cube: Episode 2 centers around Guile and Bison's attachment to their Xbox 360.
  • Disney Acid Sequence: Marco Antonio Regil's entrance in episode 7, with some Kill la Kill for measure.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Nicolas Cage attacks Lopez Doriga for the latter not understanding how to arrange the shelves in alphabetical order, and then he attacks Guile and Bison for pacing ahead of them in the game before T. Hawk breaks up the fight. In the episode's credits, he's still seen attacking Doriga.
  • Downer Beginning: Leet Fighters 6, Bison dies from a computer rigged by Honda and Dee Jay.
  • Foreshadowing: Before Balrog leaves Guile and Bison, he taped a video showing his desire to go to France, which Guile and Bison watch. This would foreshadow the duo's appearance in Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents.
  • Game Show Appearance:
    • Guile and Mephiles make one on a fictional game show in Episode 5.
    • Guile, Bison, and T. Hawk star in another fictional game show in Episode 7.
  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: Bison has an interaction with his good angel (represented by Guile) and his bad angel (represented by himself) when deciding whether or not to abandon Guile and try to score with Panty instead. He chooses Panty.
  • Halfway Plot Switch: Episode 3's plot about getting back to Honda and Deejay for taking Guile's lunch money is immediately abandoned after said villains defeat the heroes, in favor of showing Guile trying to deal with an exam. By episode 5, the abandoned plot line is resolved.
  • High-Altitude Battle: T. Hawk against Mormon Jesus in Episode 7.
  • It's Personal: Most of Konata's scenes consist of desiring revenge on Guile and Bison for killing and eating her and her friends, only for her to get killed quickly.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!:
    Bison: STOP... THAT... PLAAANE!!!
  • Sealed Evil in a Teddy Bear: In Episode 7, a teddy bear uses dark magic to destroy Bison's newspapers, once Balrog destroy the plush, purple smoke come out of its remains, implying the bear was possessed. This is all forgotten just after.
  • Self-Deprecation: As the series creator is from Mexico, this may count for T. Hawk, who is a living caricature of every Mexican stereotype in existence.
  • Shout-Out: Guile and Bison play Candy Crush on Yakuza's "free" smartphone in the fifth episode.
    • At the hospital, when Hitler shoos Fegelein out, posters of House and Dr. Mario can be seen in the background.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Invoked. Guile wears glasses so he can do better on his exam. It almost works.
  • Special Guest/The Cameo: Check this page.
  • Squick: In-Universe, Stocking does not appreciate Guile trespassing into her home naked.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Gaston has an identical Japanese cousin named Yakuza, who sports Cool Shades.
  • Vacation Episode: Episode 4 is about Guile and Bison visiting Japan (specifically Daten City). They're still there in Episode 5.

"Oh, come now, girl! After all we've been through, I'm so much more intimate with you now. Remember girl, this is your sanctuary."

Tommy Wiseau vs. Corset

Left without his powers and facing against a powerful demon who is able to bring back deceased villains, Tommy sacrifices himself to not only kill Corset, but also to deny him the ability to revive himself and thus dies twice as a result, both times taking Corset out of the war.

How well does it match the trope?
