Puppet Reviews Stuff is a web series centered around puppets. The eponymous Puppet specializes in reviewing movies and the like. He is also partially a reactionist who reacts to shows like SuperMarioLogan, Supermarioglitchy4's Super Mario 64 Bloopers, and Miraculous Ladybug.

This web series provides examples of:

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Merial is deeply infatuated with Puppet much to his ire.
  • Arch-Enemy: Vonstrucker is this to Puppet. As Farkel points out in the finale, Puppet is the only person Vonstrucker is truly afraid of.
  • Bad Boss:
    • Puppet tends to mistreat Farkel and is unappreciative of the work Farkel puts into assisting him on videos even if for the most minimal of effort.
    • Vonstrucker is worse. He forces Farkel to work for him under the threat of having his father executed and later fires his weapons at another henchman for his own amusement.
  • Berserk Button: Puppet has a few not limited to:
    • Never call him Chef Pee Pee due to him looking like a spitting image of him.
    • Never damage or steal his DVDs. This sets the plot in motion for the Season 2 story-line.
  • Big Bad: Vonstrucker who devotes his time trying to destroy Puppet and everything he loves.
  • Black Comedy Rape: Merial does this to Puppet. As what you can expect, this traumatizies him.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Puppet often breaks the fourth wall when alluding to the fact that he had a puppeteer.

  • Damsel in Distress: Merial lampshades this herself when she revealed that she was kidnapped by Vonstrucker.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Farkle, as a result of a challenge, reacts to the SML video "Jeffy the Good Boy."

  • Domestic Abuser: Vonstrucker emotionally abuses his housewife Sharon going as far as to slap her when she refused to break off her friendship with Merial.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Puppet's...referred to as Puppet. However unlike many other examples of the trope, Puppet does in fact have a name, but he doesn't share it.

  • Otaku: Derek, so much so, he has to beg Merial to say "Nico Nico Nii" because he wanted a real girl to say it.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: The Puppet curses frequently.
  • The Sociopath: Vonstrucker has all the warning signs: he's manipulative; needs a source of stimulation to alleviate boredom; lacks empathy; and lastly, he has a high opinion of himself.
