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 angrily shakes his fist 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 is a mean-spirited cat, 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 as he kicked him.
  • 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".
  • Spiritual Successor: To Cboyardee's equally strange and crude (but arguably darker) Dilbert videos.
  • Advertisement:
  • 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

  • 0% Approval Rating: In "Garfielf Goes To Germany Part 2", Nazi Germany's people clearly dislike and disrespect Garfielf, despite them being their country's leader.
  • Abusive Parents: Discussed in "Garfielf Kart (Jon Arbuckle plays [sic] Garfield Kart)"; Jon mentions his parents told him he "would never amount to anything".
  • The Ace: Inverted and discussed; Garfielf states in "Garfielf As a Fly" and "Garfielf strikes [sic] back [sic] again [sic]" that Jon sucks at everything.
  • Actionized Adaptation: Some episodes have action scenes, unlike most Garfield media.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: In Flippo's re-animation of the original video, the characters are significantly cuter. It helps that it averts Stylistic Suck, unlike the original video.
  • Adaptational Badass: Everyone in the series Fist of the borf star.
  • Adaptational Curves: Likely Played for Laughs in "garfielf's [sic] judgement [sic] day [sic]"; Arlene has a naked Impossible Hourglass Figure and massive breasts, neither of which she has in canon.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: Arlene's relationship with Garfielf here is quite different from what the love-hate relationship we know in the comics.
    • In "garfellow [sic] makes [sic] a lasaga [sic]", Arlene seems to be Garfielf's friendess with benefits.
    • In "Garfielf VS Nermal", Arlene and Garfielf were sharing a bed with each other.
    • In "Garfielf Falls in Love", Arlene totally rejects Garfielf. Granted, he did make a horrible impression.
  • All According to Plan: In one of Don Glitchy's vids, Garfielf says that, "everything's going according to plan!"
  • 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."
  • All Women Are Lustful: Discussed in "garfielf [sic] is [sic] trying [sic] to eat [sic] something [sic] (garfielf's [sic] 5th anniversary [sic] special [sic])"; Garfielf states Liz creates pornographic films and she puts them on Pornhub.
  • Anal Probing: Some aliens try to subject Garfielf to anal probing in "Garfilf [sic] acquires [sic] the highest [sic] form [sic] of lasaga [sic]".
  • Animesque: Most of Fist of the borf star.
  • 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.
  • Ass Shove: Garfielf shoves a cactus up Jon's anus in “Garfielf Jon Takes a Dump".
  • Big Bad Wannabe:
    • Adolf Hitler. Yes, you read that correctly; in "Garfielf Goes To [sic] Germany", Garfielf easily kills him and replaces him as Germany's chancellor.
    • Despite originally appearing to be a big threat, Garfielf effortlessly defeats Jim DavOS.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: The titular Garfielf briefly puts up an innocent facade in "Garfielf The [sic] Electrician". However, in reality, he is anything but innocent.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Blood comes out of Jon's mouth after Garfielf punches him in one video.
  • Break Him By Talking: In "Garfielf emotionally [sic] scars [sic] Jon", Garfielf insults Jon for his deceased mother, causing him to latter suffer Heroic B So D.
  • 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.
  • The Chew Toy: Jon tends to suffer Garfielf's comical abuse.
  • Chubby Chaser: Liz mentions in "Garfielf ruins [sic] Jahn's [sic] date‬ [sic]" that she is a Chubby Chaser.
  • 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.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Garfielf suffers one in "Garfielf summons [sic] Cthulhu" when Odie uses Combat Tentacles to tear off his hands, lower legs, and head. He takes it as well as you'd expect.
  • 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.
  • A Date with Rosie Palms: In "Garfielf gets personal", when Jon tries telling Garfielf he does have a girlfriend, Garfielf tells him that his right hand doesn't count as one.
  • 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.
  • Demoted to Extra:
    • Arlene is a pretty major character in the Garfield comic strip, but here she's largely Out of Focus.
    • Initially, Blobfield was the Villain Protagonist of his very own series. Later however, he became more of a secondary character.
  • Depending on the Writer: Since most Garfielf creators don't put out more than one or two videos with some exceptions, the tone of the videos can vary wildly from straight parodies of the original comic strip like the original video or twisted Black Comedy, with Garfielf being characterized as a sociopath who will shove Odie into blenders, commit horrific acts of terrorism, or straight up murder Jon for not giving him lasaga.
  • 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.
  • Disguised in Drag: Probably Played for Laughs. However, Garfielf disguises himself as a woman in "Garfielf King Jonathan Needs A [sic] Queen" to yank Jon's chain as he wanted a queen.
  • Disproportionate Retribution:
  • 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.
  • Flipping the Bird:
    • Garfielf and Jon sometimes give the finger, like in "Garfielf wants [sic] a sandwich" and "‪Garfielf ruins [sic] Jahn's date‬ [sic]".
    • There are pictures of someone’s hand flipping the bird in "Garfielf and jon [sic] going [sic] to the jungle [sic]".
    • Arlene gives the finger to Garfielf in "Garfielf Falls in Love".
  • 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 Lips: The characters sometimes briefly have comically large lips.
  • 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".
  • The Grunting Orgasm: While it might be closer to a (Gender Inverted) The Immodest Orgasm, Garfielf claims in "Garfielf gets [sic] Pregnant" he made some "pleasure screaches [sic]" when Jon had sex with him.
  • Helium Speech: DonGlitchy's videos often end with Jon going on an angry rant about Garfielf's actions using this effect.
  • Hospital Surprise: Odie has to go to a hospital in "garfielf [sic] commits [sic] crimes [sic] against [sic] humanity [sic]" because of all the times Garfielf has kicked him of the table.
  • 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!"
  • Matter of Life and Death: In "the garfielf (la)saga comes to an end." it is quite imperative that Jon gives Garfielf Lasaga.
  • Milking the Giant Cow: In "Garfielf Goes To [sic] Germany", Hitler makes exaggerated motions while talking.
  • Narcissist: While Garfielf isn't one, Jon still calls him this in "Garfielf and the fridge [sic] crisis [sic]".
  • Negative Continuity: Enforced since Garfielf creators work independently of each other. If the events of other Garfielf videos are referenced, it's usually the original video or another video from the creator's own body of work.
  • 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.
  • Off with His Head!: Garfielf cuts off Nermal's head off-screen in "Garfielf Deletes John's Hentai Collection". Garfielf also gets beheaded himself in "Garfielf summons [sic] Cthulhu".
  • Out-of-Character Moment: In "garfielf [sic]: jon [sic] meets [sic] his [sic] parents [sic] and friends [sic] (thanksgiving [sic] special [sic] + Announcement)", Jon makes Garfielf a lasagna note . And the feline declines it. (Granted, he wasn't hungry, but still.)
  • Pie in the Face: Jon gets hit in the face with a pie in "Garfielf: April Fools' Prank Gone Wrong".
  • Place Worse Than Death: In Garfielf Enters a Forbidden Valley, the "forbidden valley" in question is the website of DeviantArt.
  • 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.
  • The Scapegoat: Garfielf tends to accuse Odie (and occasionally Jon) of his own wrongdoings.
  • Sensory Abuse: Used occasionally with the videos. This video is a perfect example.
  • 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 [sic] 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.‬
  • Stuff Blowing Up: In "Garfielf cat 35 feat. Nermal", Garfielf lights up a cigarette after killing Jon via a giant, deadly fart. Said fart had filled the entire room/house however, so when Garfielf starts the lighter, the gas violently explodes and takes everything with it.
  • Suicide as Comedy: Jon sometimes commits suicide, though its usually Played for Laughs.
  • Tampering with Food and Drink: Happens with Garfielf in "Garfielf gets indigestion" and "Garfielf cat 35 feat. Nermal". In both instances, Jon and Nermal in their respective videos trick Garfielf into eating tainted lasaga (specifically Olive Garden lasaga), causing him great digestive pain... followed by him expelling incredible amounts of lethal gas that kills Jon both times.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: The 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.
  • Unsportsmanlike Gloating: According to Jon, Odie gloats if he beats him in pong in the Garfielf Pong Game.
  • Villainous Breakdown:
    • This happens to Garfielf multiple times. For instance, after he wakes up in the forbidden valley of Deviantart in "Garfielf Enters a Forbidden Valley", he has kittens and has a short Cluster F Bomb Rant. When Jon leaves him there, he's visibly horrified and begins screaming.
    • Jim DavOS starts losing it when Garfielf gains the power to kill him.
  • Walking Spoiler: The existence of Jim DavOS alone is a Spoiler.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Garfielf demonstrates his willingness to harm Nermal in "Garfielf cat 35 feat. Nermal". To quote, "You are just a child who was meant to be beaten because kids are idiots". He even straight up runs Nermal over with a car (and, unsurprisingly, he survives). Kind of justified in this case, as Nermal acts just as hostile and continually provokes Garfielf.

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