"If I wasn't there this day, Ian would have flown away into space. And he would be dead."


Smosh is a comedic YouTube sketch comedy channel co-founded by the Smosh duo, Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla.

The duo began working together in the early 2000s with Flash animations on sites like Newgrounds and the website. They moved to YouTube in the fall of 2005, and became popular for their theme song lipsyncs; their Pokémon theme song lipsync was once the most-viewed video on YouTube before a copyright takedown.

The Smosh Squad is an expanded crew of 5 regulars consisting of Shayne Topp, Olivia Sui, Courtney Miller, Noah Grossman and Keith Leak.

Smosh has created:

  • Shut Up! Cartoons (animation)
  • Smosh Games (games)
  • Smosh's second channel)
  • ElSmosh (Spanish translated)
  • Smosh France (French translated)
  • Smosh: The Movie: A 2015 theatrical movie based around Smosh going inside YouTube to alter a clip that will ruin Anthony's chances of winning over his crush. It premiered at LA and in Vidcon before having an official release in the US and UK, and on-demand on Vimeo and Netflix.

  • Ghostmates: A 2016 YouTube Red original.

The duo parted in 2017 when Anthony left to pursue independent works on his solo channel. In early November 2018, Smosh's parent company (Defy Media) shut down and brought Smosh and Smosh Games to a hiatus. Rhett & Link's Mythical Entertainment acquired Smosh in late February 2019.

  • Black Dude Dies First: Invoked by Anthony, who sends his friend the Molester Moon emoji because "he's not a main character and he's a minority; so he's pretty expendable."
  • Electrified Bathtub: Lampshaded by the girl, who dies by dropping her phone into the bathtub.
  • Excited Show Title!: Subverted. The short was originally titled "MOLESTER MOON!", but the exclamation mark has since been removed.

  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Jigglypuff in 4 is explicitly addressed as male by the Old Man.

  • Joke Character: Hipster's Magikarp and Metapod in 1 and 3, respectively.

  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: In 1, Magikarp's life is already critical yet it doesn't stop Pikachu to finish him off with Thundershock, resulting Magikarp turned into Sweeping Ashes.
  • Troll: Old Man in 3. He advised Ash to fight Hispter to get Pokeflute. The fight is so frustrating for Ash since Hipster uses Metapod that is nothing but a Stone Wall, wasting so much of his time with the battle. After winning the battle by scaring Hipster by threatening him to attack with Charizard, it turns out Hipster doesn't have the flute at all and gave Ash an Okarina instead. Then he told Ash Pokeflute can only be bought from the Old Man. Ash then angrily asks he want to buy Pokeflute from Old Man, who said Ash has to battle him first, with his six Metapods.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Ash in 5 when he discovered that none of his three Pokemon (Pikachu, Charizard, Jigglypuff) can't learn "Cut" technique from HM-Cut to cut the bushes that preventing him to take an item, so he angrily cut the bushes himself and take the item, only to find another HM-Cut. So then, he unleashes his next anger to the Old Man.
  • Wings Do Nothing: In 3, Charizard apparently can't learn "Fly" technique despite having wings as Ash pointed out.

  • Meddling Parents: Billy's mother thinks Bambi is too inappropriate for him.

    Dr. Sattler: Maybe we shouldn't be messing with mother nature. This could really come back and bite us in the ass.

    Narrator: OR COULD IT?
  • Brick Joke:
    • During Evil Fortune Cookie, Anthony's middle name (Danger) was revisited much, much later in WORST ID PHOTO EVER!
    • In "A Smoshy Christmas," the viewer cannot fail to see Anthony's underwear-clad ass as he is about to start telling Ian the "story." Ian then points out towards the end that Anthony forgot to fasten his butt-flap. Part 2 ends with the underwear vanishing completely.

  • Call-Back:
    • Best Toy Ever recreates the scene from Dolls where Ian discovers Anthony's little secret...
    • The throwaway line in "Stuck In A Toilet!" where Anthony complains about hating it when people record vertically. A few months later, in "iPhone 5 Revealed," the clueless dad tries to record his son's birthday party vertically, but the new iPhone catches fire and burns his hand.
    • The Running Gag of Anthony being increasingly less clothed in "Paranormal Easy Bake Oven" also returns in "iPhone 5 Revealed." It only progresses to the point where he's down to his undershirt (the pants stay on this time.)
    • "Holy Crap, 2 Billion Views!" is just full of these. Among them we have: Officer Anous (shooting Sohinki, Lasercorn and Jovenshire for standing in a shower with a limit of two grown men), Boxman, and of course Friendship Always Wins!
    • WORST PROPOSALS EVER! has Anthony finding out that his mom is his dad, which was also mentioned in FIRETRUCK!, as well as WORST TWIST ENDINGS EVER!
    • In a recent video, Addison Rae isn't real?, a fan is excited to meet world-famous social media influencer Addison Rae, only to find out that she's not real and is only a "virtual influencer" created through motion capture and computer-generated graphics. The crew behind her explain to the fan that they had been working on a prototype for a virtual influencer as early as 2012 but it went really wrong: the example clip being from REAL VOODOO DOLL! when Anthony is trying to sabotage Ian's job interview by making him spazz out on top of the employer's desk and screaming out "BALLS!" repeatedly. However, because they're now owned by Mythical Entertainment by the time the video was released, they cut him off when he says "BALLS!"

  • Canada, Eh?: Exaggerated in "A Smoshy Christmas," in which the Mountie running border patrol has a hilariously bad accent that seems to waver between Newfie and Oirish.
  • Captain Obvious: The news reporter in "Badass New Power Rangers," when the witch starts attacking, yells that the situation "really sucks balls."

  • Chroma Key: Fairly obvious when it's used, with the low budget and all.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: The end of "iPhone 5 Revealed." Who knew Steve Jobs had such a potty mouth...or such a propensity for violence?

    • Ian had to tell his mom about the worst dream he had last night as part of doing Anthony's morning routine, which resulted in this.

  • Crosscast Role: Due to two males being the main actors, it's bound to happen.
  • Crossover:
  • Curse Cut Short: See Atomic F-Bomb above.

  • Department of Redundancy Department: A deleted scene from Ian Gets Lucky lists reasons why Anthony and Ian shouldn't be getting allowances. They have big noses. In case you missed it the first time it was mentioned, it shows up in a bigger size down the list. It's even lampshaded!
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: "Meat In Your Mouth" and "Dixon Cider." As if the lyrics to the songs weren't suggestive enough, the videos are full of over-the-top innuendo.
    • "Naval Cannon" is a deliberate Take That! to American Gun Culture, but replaces handguns and assault rifles with naval cannons.
  • Downer Ending: Stranded, looking through the eyes of the man who is stranded.

  • Emo Teen: Being one is the only way to survive High School, according to what the Internet says in Four Years Foreplay. Hilarity Ensues when Ian's character shows up to school in dark clothing, guyliner, straightened hair, and (fake) facial piercings.
  • Engrish: The birthday cake Ian got for Anthony (on his own birthday!) is written with this, because he bought it in Chinatown.

    Woman (Anthony): Ever since he's been using Wandagra—well, his wand has been really stiff!
    Ian: And she's not referring to my penis.
    Woman (Anthony): ...Yes I am!
  • Even the Guys Want Him:
    • Anthony. Several guys in the channel have expressed desire to marry him.
    • Also, played with by Freshman!Ian in "That's Hot!" He thought it was due to his leather shorts, but it was really because of the pizza-flavored Hot Pocket in his transparent fanny pack.

Also invoked in one video when Ian mentions how much he would just grope himself if he were a girl.

  • Get A Hold Of Yourself Man: In SMOSH VS ZOMBIES.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: Anthony wears SpongeBob boxers a lot, especially when he has to show his underwear on camera.
    • Ian doesn't usually show underwear that much, but we do very often see a Union-Jack pattern on his belt.
  • Gratuitous German: The reason Ian doesn't help out Anthony in "Stuck In A Toilet!" is because he's busy learning German to prepare for Nazi zombies...again.
    How about this phrase, you stupid American? I just pooped my lederhosen! Ich scheiße auf meine Lederhosen!

  • Jump Scare: In the "supersonic screeching" segment of Super Powers!, Anthony is standing far away holding several objects. He is far enough not to be able to hear him at all. That is until Ian suddenly pops up close to the camera and screams really loud.
    Anthony: Hey, so, the funny thing about this is if you actually look really closely, you can see-
  • Literal Metaphor: In We're Stuck Together!
    'Bangs Boss: So hot...
    (Shot shows Anthony and Ian in a cat fight)
    Game show Judge:' You like four boobs too?
    Bangs Boss: No, you're coffee is spilling all over my feet! IT'S BURNING MY FLESH OFF!
    (cuts to the Bangs Boss's feet, which are now skeletonized)

  • Mistaken for Superpowered: In "MY MUTANT RASH!", Ian and Anthony start developing a weird rash after finding a mysterious meteor. They also begin to develop powers (which are actually just mundane tricks they blow out of proportion) like the ability to bend pencils (the Rubber Pencil Trick) and try to psychically control a random bystander (when really he just gets a brain freeze from his drink). The fact that The Men in Black come to their door to bother them only feeds into their delusions. By the end of the video, it is revealed that the meteor was a lump of calcified feces dumped from a space-station and the rash they got was a bad bacterial infection they got from eating (and eating off of) the "meteor".
  • Mistaken for Racist: Anthony in I'M NOT RACIST!!!.
  • Mood Whiplash: "*NEW* Smosh Reality TV Show!" starts off showing how actually boring most of Anthony and Ian's production process is. Then it suddenly reveals that the guys apparently run a meth lab and a human trafficking ring.
  • Moral Dissonance:
    • In the video "Toy Airplane." Anthony & Ian use a toy airplane that accidentally takes pictures of a murder. Then they spend the rest of the time trying to get the airplane back while doing NOTHING to bring the killer to justice.
    • Ian's mom frequently allows her son to die (or kills him herself), and seems to prefer Anthony. Anthony makes plenty of "hot mom"-style jokes about her because of it. Even funnier is that she is actually his mom in real life, and the things they get her to do and say are more hilarious because of it.
  • Mon: "Go, Anthonymon!" in Pokémon Theme.
  • More Dakka: Sergeant Anous shoots his victims with a ridiculous number of bullets, from a handgun.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Anthony got the most amount of shirtless scenes, wearing skimpy outfits and even crossdressing. After his departure from Smosh, Shayne has been the person with the most shirtless scenes, being shirtless in the first video he featured in and with his recently introduced Shayne the Stripper persona.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: The video officially introducing Smosh Games to the world has Anthony complaining about the generic-ness of their new channel name, but Ian thinks that same generic-ness makes it awesome.

  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: In one video, Anthony's sister (played by Anthony) starts dating Ian, and Anthony's not too happy about that.

  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Anthony uses one to trick Ian into believing that he's the tooth fairy.
  • Parody Name: Look closely at the screen on the iPhone in "My Mail Order Bride" and "iPhone 5 Revealed." You can see, in the upper left corner, "GAYT&T." Possibly a Take That!.
  • Pepper Sneeze: In "LONGEST STARING CONTEST", when Ian (and Anthony, still staring at one another) goes to his date's house, she just so happens to have some of her mom's fresh ground pepper, and then the inevitable occurs...
  • Perma-Stubble: Ian can always be recognized by this.
  • Phallic Weapon: Link insists Zelda loves his master sword in The Legend of Zelda Rap.
  • Picky Eater: Noah is a very picky with his food and doesn't really like to eat anything besides plain cheese pizza. Which is why he gets to host the "Put it in your mouth" series to help him get over his pickiness.

    • The "Taken 3" Trailer.
  • Real After All:
    • Bigfoot and zombies
    • The tooth fairy.
  • Real Name as an Alias: In the Pole Dancing squad vlog, the crew was asked to pick "stripper names" for themselves. Courtney wanted to go with "Chaunces", but everyone else agrees that "Courtney" already sounds like a stripper enough, so she just went with her own name.
  • Reality Warper: The narrator in "Epic Trailer Gone Wrong" can make anything happen just by saying, "In a world where {something happens}...", or, "In a world without {something that goes away}...". But he's eventually Hoist by His Own Petard when the trailer's protagonist gets fed up with his shenanigans and decides to become a narrator himself for revenge.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Whenever Anthony's eyes turn red, it means he's brainwashed by something.
  • Red Scare: Ian being a tad silly, as usual, mentions this briefly when Anthony announces their new Smosh Pit feature for the site.
  • Red Shirt: Billy in "JURASSIC POKEMON". He happens to scream like a little girl, which annoys the hell out of Grant and Sattler to the point where they purposely leave him behind.
    Ian: I've been digging this hole for two weeks straight, for no reason whatsoever?! [...] You know what? I'm going to continue to dig this hole, and when I'm done, I'm turning it into a bomb shelter! And when the commies nuke us, guess who's not invited? YOU! And Jon Gosselin! * Digs*

    • Cletus screaming in terror at the end of the Neighbour videos.
    • Ian frequently claims to be hurt in female reproductive parts.
    • Part of their Bait-and-Switch humor is that they are frequently shown to appear to be doing something sexual, only for the camera angle to change and reveal that they are doing a mundane activity in an odd pose.
    • "Paranormal Easy Bake Oven" gets in quite a few, mostly when Ian and Anthony have to sleep in the same bed four nights in a row. Examples:

  • Sassy Black Woman: The "Oh, hell no!" lady.
  • Scenery Censor: A form of this in "Biggest Zit Ever:" Anthony holds a potted plant in front of his face to hide the zit.
  • Screamer Prank: Parodied. In the episode Super Powers! Anthony is standing far away holding several objects. He is far enough not to be able to hear him at all. That is until Ian suddenly pops up close to the camera and screams really loud.
    Anthony: Hey, so, the funny thing about this is if you actually look really closely, you can see-
  • Screw Yourself:
    Anthony's Girlfriend: I have something to tell you.
    Anthony: What?
    Anthony's Girlfriend (who suddenly turns into him): I AM you!
  • Self-Deprecation: Anthony has said that "Stranded" winning the 2006 YouTube Award for Best Comedy showed how little comedy there was back when YouTube started, because apparently there had to have been no competition for their short to win.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Ian is often the sensitive guy and Anthony the manly man.
    • To back this up, Ian seems to get insulted a bit more easily than Anthony, and has also cried for real on camera.
    • Even in React, most prominently in Knife Game Song. You can clearly see Ian scared for the man playing the knife game, while Anthony gets excited, even shouting "Faster, faster!"
  • Serial Escalation: "Sexting Gone Wrong" does this on a MASSIVE scale.
    Ian: If you want someone to see you naked, do it in person. Practice safe sext.
  • Serious Business

  • Shout-Out:
  • Sleep Cute: Face it. They're both adorable when they're asleep.

  • Sound-Effect Bleep
  • Spit Take: Done by both boys with milk when they look at the sales of Ian's SHUT! UP! Droid phone app in Ian Gets Lucky...
    • Done once more(!) when Anthony tries to take another sip of the milk. "Probably don't wanna drink that, I spit in that."
  • Spoof Aesop: Real Death Note: "Books are dangerous. Play more video games."
  • Status Quo Is God: Very good thing too, otherwise we'd be seeing not Ian and Anthony but their extra-concentrated ghosts.
  • Stock Scream: The "REAL WATCH DOGS HACKS!" video has the Wilhelm scream when Bad Guy #1 falls into the ball pit.
  • Stuck in a Chimney: Pointed out in a holiday parody video that if Santa Claus tried this method of breaking and entering, he'd get stuck halfway down. The clip shows Santa's feet sticking out of the chimney mouth as he screams for help to get out as his feet are burned by the flames from the fireplace.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: "Holy Crap, 2 Billion Views!" has one that dominates almost the entire second half of the vid - the preparation for, and finally the actual act of, blowing up a commemorative cake baked by Duff Goldman - in glorious slow motion.
  • Stylistic Suck:
    • One of the extras, Anthony's Own Video, shows us that Anthony's really incompetent with making videos by himself with Ian apparently being "dead" and all....
    • Ian's mom's video in ''My Mom's AMAZING Video!".
    • "Driver's Ed Crap Rap," and HOW! Justified in that it's presented as a ten-year-old vid they had just dug up.
  • Subverted Rhyme Every Occasion: Transformers Rap does this.
    Ian: The Transformers creators wouldn't pay us to make this rap
    They told us that the script was full of NONSENSE!
    I bet you thought I was gonna say "crap", cause it rhymes with "rap", but I'm better than that!
  • Super Drowning Skills: Poor Anthony. He's immune to a lot of things (cobra venom, groin punches, peer pressure, flesh eating viruses, rabies, and shark feces), but water is not one of them.
  • Tag Team Suicide: When Batman and Robin try to make a video and become YouTube stars, they demonstrate things you could do as a hero. In one part of the video, Batman tries to give an injection to a rabid dog, but apparently winds up killing himself with the needle. Robin sees this, and injects himself with the shot, saying "I'll be with you soon, my love." However, Batman was just pretending to die, and when he realizes Robin is really dead, he doesn't care. He's just happy he'll be an Internet celebrity!
  • Take That!: "First Person Shooters Suck!", against Call of Duty (specifically Modern Warfare).
    • In If Video Games Were Real, officer Anous shoots the Duck Hunt dog.
      • The If... Were Real segments in general are just them showing what various forms of media would be like if they were actually realistic.

    • The guys really, Really don't like Snooki.
    • Disney Star Wars
    • From My Bobblehead is Evil!:
      Anthony: Did you hear that?

    • They've asked a Lakitu for a voodoo doll of Kesha.
    • On the subject of video games causing violence here.
    • The End of Christmas, an obvious Take That to Christmas, but during Anthony's segment, where he complains where his mom gets him sweaters and the wrong video game, the 'wrong video game' seen is Duke Nukem Forever.
    • "Retarded Cats" is this to ableist language.
  • Tempting Fate:
    • Anthony just got to star in an acne-cream commercial (being specifically ordered to keep his skin clear too), and what is the first thing he does? PIZZA FACIAL!!! Ultimately double-subverted. Anthony is fired not for getting a zit, but because the director wanted to ask him out when he was disguised as his grandma, and he got mad at him for "cockblocking" him. And don't forget, the director has already been all but confirmed to be hot for Anthony.
    • Almost everything Professor Oak says in "JURASSIC POKEMON" is this Up to Eleven.
    • Dr. Sattler falls victim to it too.

  • The Problem with Pen Island: Altogether now: "PEN 15!"

    • The end of Stranded:
    • Ian's First Girlfriend.
    Cockadoodle doo. BITCH!
    • Sexist burger (Lunchtime With Smosh)
    "Bye!" "Bye!" "Bye?" "Bye." "Bye. . . bitch."

  • Too Smart for Strangers: In "PARENTS SUCK!", the bratty teen played by Anthony happily accepts a lollipop from a stranger.
  • Totally Radical
    • Anthony's dad in "Badass New Power Rangers."
    • Also, the therapist in "Most Violent Game Ever!" keeps saying "big frickin' dealio." A lot.
  • Twist Ending
    • "Real Ghostbusters" is not only a parody of Ghostbusters but also of The Sixth Sense. After you figure that out, everything makes sense...sort of.
    • "My Bobblehead is Evil:" Ian has an evil bobblehead, too!
    • "Smosh vs Zombies" ends with Ian and Anthony realizing that they could be best friends forever if they become zombies, so they willingly get infected. The video ends to them gleefully butchering survivors while cheerful music plays.

    • Super Head Esploder 5 in Anthony is Mexican.
    • Most Violent Game Ever: Super Head Esploder X, which now allows you to use your iPad's photos to make the heads you get to esplode.

  • Unusual Euphemism: In the Mighty Smoshin' POWER RANGERS video, a man stealing a kid's candy says to Ian and Anthony (who try to stop him) "Screw off, cheesefarts."
    • In 2 Guys 1 Bathroom, Ian thinks "If he sees me going to the stall, he's going to think I'm insecure and have a small tallywhacker. Wait... why'd I just call it a tallywhacker?" Then later in the video, as someone is waiting on Ian or Anthony to get done using the urinal, he exclaims: "Fine! I'll just use the stall! And I don't have a small tallywhacker!"
    • From Dubstep Commercials Suck, we have this gem of a line: "Sweet Sacajawea, that's highly irregular!"
    • Also..."I'm draining my sausage!" from Anthony. (Ian says almost the same thing, substituting Five-Dollar Footlong.)
  • Useless Without Cell Phones: In "OUR GENERATION IS F*CKED: The Movie", Anthony is used as a test subject to see if today's generation could get by in a world without cell-phones and internet where he quickly breaks down, slowly going crazy without modern conveniences. Safe to say, our generation is f*cked.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: If Anthony and Ian are portraying themselves, they're often an exaggerated Type 2; despite being best friends, they don't seem to give a damn about anything that happens to each other, even if the other one is outright killed. In fact, 90% of the time one of them dies, the other one is directly responsible for it.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: Claymation Ian in "A Smoshy Christmas, Part 2". Repeatedly.
    Anthony: Technically, we're driving on the ocean.

  • We All Live in America: A lot of the stuff on Smosh Pit doesn't make any sense for non-americans
  • What Beautiful Eyes!: Ian. A lot of their Youtube comments are about this. Anthony even acknowledges this in a Lunchtime With Smosh video where he says Ian has "cool eyes" while he has "poop eyes".
  • Why Did It Have To Be Aunt Jemima?: According to "My Stupid Dying Grandpa," Ian is terrified of Aunt Jemima. Not the syrup, but Aunt Jemima herself. The eyes just stare into his soul.
  • Yandere: Siri, for Anthony in SIRI TRIED TO KILL ME!
    • Makes it very odd when the Couch Gag for "iPhone 5 Revealed" has Anthony ask Siri if she'll be his girlfriend, and she says no. Got reset, perhaps?
  • Yaoi Fangirl: Not surprisingly some of their fans. It's extremely hilarious to see Ian and Anthony's reactions when they are sent slash fanfiction of themselves.
  • Your Costume Needs Work: Every Wrestler Ever involves the Smosh gang doing imitations of wrestlers along with the WWE. During an imitation of Seth Rollins, the real deal says it looks stupid.
  • Your Mom:
    • Ian's mom is often referred to in various as a joke. In one of Smosh Games' Game Bang videos, the SG team did a speed drawing revenge on Ian and Anthony, then upped the ante by bringing in Ian's mom.
    • Ian himself seem to be fixated on Sohinki's mom. When he came in for the "QUIPLASH w/ SMOSH GAMES 3: QUIPLASH RISES (SGA Live)" episode, most of almost all hi answers involve Sohinki's mom. Of coures, Sohinki retaliated by bringing back the Ian's mom jokes.
  • YouTuber Apology Parody: The YouTube Apology Service, where Yonnie Fritz and Fritz Yonnie coach YouTubers to apologize for hurting other people's feelings, not what they actually did. They also remind creators to cry with an air-horn ("cry horn") and bring them to tears with pepper spray ("sympathy spray").

Sergeant Anous busts a guy for illegally parking in the handicapped spot. When the guy complies and tries to park somewhere else, Anous uses this as an excuse to shoot him.

How well does it match the trope?
