Describing Garfielf here as usual

I gotta have a good page

Garfielf is a video by PilotRedSun. As you can tell by the picture on the right, it's a very... strange parody of Garfield, to say the least. To sum up the video, Jon constantly gets angry about what his cat's doing in the house, including kicking Odie off a table and eating everything in the house just to name a few. The video has to be seen to be believed. Here it is.

Eventually, it spawned a whole series of videos (not made by Pilot), keeping the same style. One such series even has its own article.


i ate those tropes about the original

  • American Accents: Garfielf, being voiced by the Wiseguy voice.
  • Angry Fist-Shake: Jon does this when telling Garfielf to not kick Odie.
  • Big Eater: Garfielf appears to eat everything in the goddamn house. Jon gets mad at him for this.
  • Cats Are Lazy: Garfielf, which Jon calls him out on.
  • Cats Are Mean: Garfielf, to nobody’s surprise.
  • Deranged Animation: In the loosest term of animation.
  • Kick the Dog: Odie is on the receiving end of a literal example of this trope, courtesy of Garfielf.
  • Rant-Inducing Slight: Garfielf eating all the Hamburger Helper is the last straw for Jon.
  • Ring Ring CRUNCH: Garfielf does this to an alarm clock when it wakes him up.
  • Running Gag: Jon getting mad at Garfielf.
  • Say My Name: Jon angrily shouts Garfielf's name after the latter sends Odie "into orbit".
  • Advertisement:
  • Spiritual Successor: To Cboyardee's equally strange and crude (but arguably darker) Dilbert videos.
  • Stylistic Suck: As seen in the above image. Blatant misspellings and still images of crude drawings are used for laughs.
  • Synthetic Voice Actor: The voices are provided by Voiceforge; Garfielf is the Wiseguy voice, and Jon is the Jerkface voice.
  • Take That!: Its intentional poor quality is juxtaposed quite hilariously against its faithful adherence to the source material. It is unlikely PilotRedSun has a high opinion of Garfield.
  • Widget Series: An intentionally strange and poor-quality video whose purpose is best understood by other YouTubers.

i ate those tropes about fanvids

  • Adaptational Badass: Everyone in the series Fist of the borf star.
  • All-CGI Cartoon: DonGlitchy's series, beginning with Garfielf mass orders Lasaga.
  • All-Loving Hero: Jon in Fist of the borf star. While Wade is acting as his prison warden, Jon protects Wade from a falling block that could have killed Wade. Wade later repays this kidness by helping Jon escape. "Not everyone is evil, Naermo. Some are just misguide."
  • Apocalypse How: "garfielf becomes god and vores the universe", as the title suggests, appears to be a Class X-4.
  • Art Shift: The videos tend to keep the original art style, but with a few tweaks to it.
  • Animesque: Most of Fist of the borf star.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: In this video.
    Garfielf: What in heavens is this place? It doesnt look crudely drawn enough ahahahaha forth wall is down.
  • Continuity Nod: The videos by DonGlitchy (Don Geyer) are full of this:
  • Crossover:
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: When Garfielf "frarks" with the space time continuum, Jon sends him on a weekend at the farm.
  • Darker and Edgier: Stylistic Suck aside, the original video sticks true to what would happen in regular Garfield. A lot of the resulting videos are, to varying degrees, either surreal, shocking, demented, unhinged, or a combination.
  • Death Cry Echo:
    • Jon has these at times, like in "Garfielf Reaches the Last Straw".
    • Odie screams before dying in one video.
  • Deity of Human Origin: Well, Deity of Cat Origin. But in "garfielf becomes god and vores the universe", Garfielf (a feline) becomes God.
  • Deteriorates Into Gibberish:
    • Probably just an error but Jon went from speaking coherently to talking in gibberish briefly in "Garfielf screws [sic] up Jon's shoes [sic]".
    • Briefly happens to Jon at one point in "Garfielf Kart (Jon Arbuckle plays [sic] Garfield Kart)", in which his speech starts off coherent but becomes gibberish.
  • Does Not Like Spam:
    • Despite being a cat in a sense, Blobfield becomes disgusted when Jon told him to eat a mouse.
    • Garfielf despises the following: Olive Garden, vegan lasagna, whole wheat, "Chief Boyardee Lasangaz", greens, and burnt toast.
  • Don't Wake the Sleeper: Garfield punches Odie when he wakes him up in "Garfielf is Deprived of Lasaga [sic]".
  • Double Entendre: In "Garfielf As a Fly", a bottle of bug stray has a crossed-out picture of Garfield (a cat). But it's name is "Pussy Destroyer".
  • Easily Forgiven: In "Garfielf's Guide to making [sic] a Lasaga [sic]", after a Garfielf gives him lasagna, Jon quickly forgives him for killing Odie and burning down his house.
  • Endangered Species: Garfielf claims he's from one in "Garfielf As a Fly" to try to prevent Jon from attempting to spray him. It doesn't work.
  • Enmity with an Object: Garfielf hates alarm clocks and Jon's fidget spinner.
  • Fan Disservice: The videos can have these. For example, in "Garfielf Declares War on Jon", there's a shot in which Garfielf has a very poorly-drawn butt.
  • Foreshadowing: In one video, Jon he said he needed to commit suicide as he views himself as "a total failure". And he later does just that in the same video. Subverted though as its sequel revealed he didn't actually commit suicide.
  • Frame-Up: Garfielf once broke into Liz's Pay Pay account and (successfully) framed Jon for it.
  • Gag Nose: While mocking Garfielf in one video, Jon has a comically large nose.
  • Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: In "Garfielf wants [sic] a sandwich [sic]", Jon is completely unable to wrap his head around why Garfielf does evil stuff.
    Jon: odie [sic] is in pain garfifel [sic] y [sic] do u [sic] do these things [sic]
  • Gratuitous Spanish:
    • In one video, Garfielf says before bumping off Jon, "...hasta la vista note ".
    • In "Garfielf's lasaga is obliterated by Jon", before killing Jon, Garfielf says in broken Spanish, "casa [sic] la vista jonbyó [sic]".
  • Gratuitous Japanese:
    • The Japanese term for "menacing" appears in "Garfielf Deletes John's Hentai Collection".
    • In one video, Garfielf asks Jon “Ogenki desu ka note , johnni-kun [sic]?”
  • Groin Attack:
    • Played for Laughs but Garfielf occasionally attacks Jon's groin, like in "Garfielf's Guide to making [sic] a Lasaga [sic]". While also likely Played for Laughs, he reveals he kicks Odie in the testicles in "Garfielf Downlaods [sic] Some Boobs".
    • Jon threatens to kick Garfielf's testicles in "Garfielf Enters a Forbidden Valley".
  • Humiliation Conga:
    • An invoked example in "Garfielf constructs [sic] a Lasaga [sic] Stadium"; thinking his owner "need[ed] more punishment", Garfielf decided to publicly humiliate Jon. First, he injects Jon with a T-Pose disease, causing him to make a T-Pose. Then the feline uses helium to inflate him, which also made his voice high-pitched. Also, all this of this happened in front of numerous people.
    • Jon gets one at the end of in "Garfielf vs. Garfield: Showdown of Stupidity". His attempt to punish Garfielf fails. The feline also forces him to deal with Garfield's Jon (who he clearly cannot stand). Garfielf even revealed to his owner that he sent Liz "embarrassing things" to reduce his chances of getting with her.
    • "‪Garfielf ruins [sic] online [sic] lasaga [sic] college [sic]‬" is basically Jon suffering this. His online lasagna class gets interrupted courtesy of Garfielf, who also accidentally ruins his kitchen. The feline proceeds to mass orders lasagna, further devastating Jon's credit. Next, due to gum from Wily Wonka's chocolate factory, he inflates like a balloon. And finally, his tutor drops him from the course.
  • Knows a Guy Who Knows a Guy: Garfielf says something like this in "John Is Depressed".
  • Losing Your Head: Invoked in "Garfielf ruins [sic] Cinco de Mayo"; Garfielf creates a taco so spicy it would "blow anyone’s head off if they try to consume it!"
  • Jump Scare / Sensory Abuse: Used occasionally with the videos. This video is a perfect example.
  • Narcissist: While Garfielf isn't one, Jon still calls him this in "Garfielf and the fridge [sic] crisis [sic]".
  • Nothing Can Stop Us Now!: Garfielf says something to this effect after all of humanity seemingly died. Unfortunately for him, he soon got punished by a not-quite-dead Jon.
  • Pie in the Face: Jon gets hit in the face with a pie in "Garfielf: April Fools' Prank Gone Wrong".
  • Psychotic Smirk:
    • Garfielf maliciously smirks before kicking Odie in one reanimation of the original video. He also let another rip in "Garfielf Hangs Out with Nermal".
    • Jon makes an evil-looking smile when plotting revenge on Garfielf in "Garfielf Enters a Forbidden Valley".
  • Really Fond of Sleeping:
    • Garfielf loves sleeping.
    • Arlene states she loves snoozing in "Garfielf but everyone [sic] is [sic] Arlene".
  • Running Gag: Giving misspelled names to mess around with the computer generated voices. Examples include lasaga, lagner, lasaganag, lasvegas, Garfigled, Garffibromyalgia, Garfal-Qaeda, Garfungus, Garflaggot, Garf-fil-a, GarFredFigglehorn, garfeces, garFLStudio, John Arcuckle, johnathritis, Jungus, Johanne, Johnny Pump, Jon Arbmukbang, the list keeps going...
  • Save the Princess: ярослав бахмутов intended the plot of "Garfielf: The Movie" to be about Garfielf, Odie, and Jon having to rescue a princess.
  • Shout-Out: To the Garfield movie in one video.
    Jon: Why did you suddenly change into Scotty from Ster Trak... oh well we'd better skedaddle the hell outta here!
    Garfielf: Allons-y!
  • Single Tear:
    • Jon sheds a single tear in some videos, like "Garfielf VS Nermal".
    • When Jon tells Garfielf that Nermal was going to give them a visit in "Garfielf gets [sic] fat [sic]", the orange feline shed one tear. He also lets out a tear in "Garfielf says [sic] no [sic] u [sic]."
    • The dogs in "Garfielf's 12 days of Christmas (Christmas special [sic])" each shed a tear.
  • Smug Smiler: Garfielf constantly wears an arrogant smile in "[SFM] Garfielf".
  • Soap Punishment: Jon once punished Garfielf via washing his mouth out with soap.‬
  • Suicide as Comedy: Jon sometimes commits suicide, though its usually Played for Laughs.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Ghe characters (especially Garfielf, Jon, and/or Odie) can die, usually by each other's hands. It usually doesn't stop them from coming back to life later, though.
  • Third Eye: Garfielf sports a third eye in the thumbnails in several of chippedipple's videos. He also gets one after consuming the universe.
  • This Cannot Be!:
    • If Jon starts losing to Odie in the Garfielf Pong Game, the former has this reaction. In one video, he gets another when Garfielf returns from Deviantart.
    • Garfielf has this reaction if Jon starts or does beat him in the Garfielf Pong Game. He also says something very similar to this in "Garfielf summons [sic] Cthulhu" when Odie starts transforming.
  • Trauma Button: Likely Played for Laughs. In "Garfielf plays Sploon", Jon asks Garfielf if the titular game has any breasts in it. For some reason, this causes Garfielf to suffer a brief PTSD-like flashback. It consists of a single picture of a sexualized octoling and stock war sound effects.

Jon: where did The Stinger go
Garfielf: *brup*


How well does it match the trope?
