The DashieXP channel features various skits, songs and animations, including:

  • Mortal Kombat Series: A series of skits featuring invokedAlternative Character Interpretations of Mortal Kombat characters. Some episodes guest star other YouTubers like Timothy DeLaGhetto or Jesse Wellens from Prank vs Prank.
  • Mortal Kombat: Epic Rap Battle: A spin-off series featuring the same characters Battle Rapping.
  • Ghetto Cartoons: Animated skits about cartoon characters behaving in a stereotypical ghetto way.
  • Ghetto Videos: Video skits featuring characters behaving in a stereotypical ghetto way.
  • Music Videos: Dashie's original songs.

Dashie also has a separate Let's Play channel, DashieGames, and DashieXP 2, which is used exclusively for rants, bloopers, and behind-the-scenes material from the skits hosted on his main channel. You can find the channel here: (link)

Videos on the DashieXP channel provide examples of:

  • Bland-Name Product: The basis of a joke in "Ghetto Chef 3: Cereal Pizza", where Dashie states that normal cereals are too expensive for him, and he instead uses equivalents produced by Millville. The joke ends with Dashie asking why invokedthe equivalent to Frosted Flakes is also itself called Frosted Flakes.
  • Dead All Along: The Twist Ending of "How NOT to Share Gum"; Dashie says that under certain situations, you will have to give up your gum, and asks viewers to take him as an example... because he died two years prior since he didn't give up the gum. He then vanishes.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: Subverted with Ghetto Diego. Diego addresses the kids beyond the screen and then states that he has never heard the kids before, making the address pointless.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Mario in "LUIGI PROBLEMS!". After Luigi gives him a passionate "The Reason You Suck" Speech, Mario... says nothing, takes a Mega Mushroom, and shows Luigi a Giant Foot of Stomping. Suddenly, Luigi doesn't feel so passionate anymore.
  • Produce Pelting: In "WORST STANDUP COMIC EVER", Dashie gets a plum thrown at him from someone offscreen. He immediately asks where they get plums and why they'd throw them, and takes a bite out of it only for its amazing taste to take him by surprise.
  • Running Gag:
    • Dashie's self-invented word "gooder", which he pronounces as "grrrrrt".
    • In the Ghetto Chef series, Dashie frequently has trouble with his cameraman. In the fourth episode, it escalates to the point where the cameraman straight up quits, leaving Dashie to try and record with one hand while preparing food with the other. Needless to say, it goes horribly, and Dashie ends up having to call his cameraman to get him to come back.
  • Smash Cut: Used frequently in the Ghetto Chef series to cut the awkwardness that is made by Dashie not really knowing what he's explaining.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Lampshaded and played for laughs with a splash of Color-Coded Characters in Teenage Mutant Ghetto Turtlez:
    Donatello: [to Raphael] Now you know if I spit game at April, this bitch'll be all over me. Everybody know I'm the cute one!
    Raphael: Motherfucka, we all look the same!
    Donatello: Man, fuck you! You know damn well purple's her favorite color!
  • Wham Line:
    • At the end of "Spongebobby Sweatpants" after Spongebobby tells Mr. Krabs that he had sex with Pearl:
      Spongebobby: [posing for mugshot] Hold up, hold up, she told me she was 19, y'all!
    • The Twist Ending of "How NOT to Share Gum", when Dashie is explaining how giving up gum is inevitable in certain situations (the situation he shows has him being held at gunpoint):
      Dashie: Don't be stupid. I mean, yeah—gum tastes gooderrrrrr, but it's not worth losing your life over! Take it from me; I died two years because I didn't give up the gum.

The Mortal Kombat Series provides examples of:

    Mortal Kombat Series 
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Averted with Mileena... Until she takes her mask off.
    Kabal: Oh, fuck thisshh!
    Raiden: Oh, hell no! *flies away*
    • In fact, the only person not turned off by her looks was Baraka... who promptly chopped her head off before having sex with her.
  • invokedAlternate Character Interpretation: The premise of the whole series.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Jax, who barely avoids the Macho Camp sterotype here.
  • Art Shift: a couple of shorts had Dashie using MK action figures instead of the usual sprite animations.
  • Ascended Extra: Smoke in Epic Rap Battle 4.
  • Battle Rapping: The Mortal Kombat: Epic Rap Battle spin-offs, which also serve as a parody of this trope.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Jax: People talking shit about his momma.
    • Scorpion: When someone mentions having sex with Sonya.
    • Rain: Being excluded from the new Mortal Kombat 9 character selection line up. He's so mad about this in fact that he goes as far smacking Ermac upside the head so hard that he's instantly unconscious. He's still mad about that he summons lightning from the sky to fry Baraka but not before Raiden flees by means of teleportation because he knows how angry Rain still is.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall:
    • In the Back to School episode, Raiden tells the creator to provide subtitles, so he can understand what Reptile says.
    • He also alludes to the audience in the Locked Up episode, mentioning that people have been wondering when the next Mortal Kombat episode was coming out.
    • In one of Smoke's very first lines from his verse in Epic Rap Battle 4, he mentions that Laquisha disappeared since episode 8.
  • Butt-Monkey: Baraka. Luckily, he's a Mortal Kombat character, so he can shrug off even death by the next episode.
  • The Cameo: Look closely at the crowd at the end of Smoke's verse in Rap Battle 4, and you might see The Mask strolling past the battle.
    • Street Fighter characters often appear as minor characters in shorts. The exception to this was Ryu, who had a major role in In Da Hood.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Raiden.
    • Scorpion, who keeps scaring women off because he tends to yell "Get over here!" at them.
  • The Chew Toy: Poor Baraka...
  • Crosscast Role: All female characters are voiced by Dashie. This was lampshaded in an early episode, when Radien noted that Sonya sounded exactly like Sindel and Mileena.
  • Catchphrase:
    • Kabal's "Guyshhh! Guyshhh!"
    • Baraka's "(Character's name), YOU REALLY GONNA DO ME LIKE THAT, (character's name)?!"
  • Dirty Coward: Raiden, despite being a Physical God, will always ditch Baraka when trouble escalates. Trouble that he usually causes in the first place.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: In the episode Mortal Kombat 9 Release Party, Rain is so pissed off at getting cut from the roster in place of Ermac, he decides to kill everyone at the party in response.
  • Fang Thpeak: Baraka suffers from this.
  • Mad Libs Catchphrase: Baraka's "[Person], you really gonna do me like that [Person]?" every time after he gets insulted for his looks or otherwise screwed over.
  • Momma's Boy: Jax.
  • My Beloved Smother: It's assumed that Jax' mother is this.
  • My Girl Is Not a Slut: Scorpion is shocked to learn that his ex Sonya slept with everyone in the series, even Baraka.
  • Negative Continuity: The status quo is always reset each episode, though Continuity Nods to past episodes crop up once in a while. It also doesn't hurt that Death Is Cheap like the canon MK universe. The exceptions to this trope are On the Run, which takes place immediately after Locked Up, and the Epic Rap Battles, as the characters use embarrassing events from past episodes as ammo for their verses.
  • Nice Guy: Baraka, though having his own share of vices, is the nicest and most polite of all the other characters.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Baraka's usual fate at the end of an episode. The amount of times this is averted can literally be counted on one hand.
  • Really Gets Around: Sonya and presumably Laquisha.
  • Running Gag:
    • Every single character mentions Baraka's ugliness. Some don't even mean to diss him, and just say it as an off-hand observation.
    • Raiden pissing someone off and then running/flying/teleporting away, leaving Baraka to that person's mercy.
    • Kabal spitting on people (and the floor) while he talks.
      • Kabal reciting a long list of things, while spitting more and more.
    • The Epic Rap Battle spin-off series also has some running gags of its own:
      • Raiden constantly losing to Baraka in the first round, in an ironic twist on the latter's Butt-Monkey status.
      • Baraka winning against a different opponent, only to have the latter kill him and snatch the win (reestablishing Baraka as the Butt-Monkey).
      • Raiden's sexuality being questioned by Baraka and other opponents during battles.
    • "Laquisha!!!"
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: At the end of the video "Locked Up" when Raiden teleports out of the room, leaving Baraka alone in the room with Shao Khan, Gary, and two unnamed giants.
  • Self-Serving Memory: In the beginning of Locked Up, Raiden blames Baraka for getting them tossed in jail. Of course as the flashback shows, the robbery was soley Raiden's idea, and it was because he went on a tirade about Good 'N Plenty's that led to Stryker catching them.
  • Serial Escalation: Kabal's spitting problem gets worse and worse with each episode.
  • Speech Impediment:
    • Baraka's lisp (see Fang Thpeak).
    • Kabal has a severe lisp and is also prone to spitting a lot, presumably because of the mask on his face.
  • Straight Man: Baraka to Raiden.
  • Tank Goodness: Mock Jax's mama, and he'll come after you with a big ol' tank with an even bigger gun. Baraka learned this the hard way. Twice.
    Jax: (Hysterically, after Baraka beats him by dissing his mama) You gon' keep talking 'bout my mama?! You gon' keep talking 'bout my mama, you know I loves my mama! You better not be talking 'bout my mama! I'mma fuck you up, you bitch-ass motherfucker! (cries hysterically)
    Baraka: Oh, come on, Jax! Where's your sportsmanship?!
    Jax: Fuck you, motherfucker! (blasts Baraka)
  • The Ghost: Laquisha. Though she's once shown in a brief flashback.
  • The Unintelligible: Raiden treats Reptile as such, even though his speech is quite understandable. Interestingly, neither Kabal nor Baraka are treated that way in-universe.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Baraka (and sometimes other characters) often gets killed at the end of each episode. In the next one, he's alive and well, with no explanation. Raiden even points that out in one episode.
  • With Friends Like These...: Baraka and Raiden live together, and their years-long friendship is often referenced, but Raiden will always leave Baraka in the frying pan when things start to get physical. And that's not even counting the times he's backhandedly insulted Baraka.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Raiden to Sindel in the flashback of Locked Up.
  • Your Mom: Jax is often the target of these, if sometimes unintentionally. Saying he doesn't take it well is a very gross understatement.
