"I review terrible episodes from various cartoons and horrible animated movies. Whether it be SpongeBob, Family Guy, a show that couldn't make it past its pilot, or awful Disney cheapquels. I also review some of the hidden gems that may have gotten lost in the mess providing some of the most tearjerking or heartwarming stories ever told."
Mr. Enter describing himself on his Patreon

The Mysterious Mr. Enter (a.k.a. John Enter, real name Johnathan Rozanski) is a freelance writer and internet critic known primarily for producing videos where he reviews works of animation, both good and bad.

Originally, Mr. Enter was known for his...

  • MLP Reviews: His first series, as the name implies, where Enter reviews My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic episodes using a unique point system. Each episode starts with five points, with Mr. Enter adding or deducting more as the episode progresses. At the end of the review, he gives out a medal ranking that reflects his personal feelings towards the episode and a star ranking based on what he thinks is its overall quality based on how many points it has earned. The highest number of stars being five while the lowest number being zero (episodes which he thinks have no redeeming value at all). Currently, he has reviews of every episode up through the finale of season four -– something he has not done in any of his later series –- with each review typically being posted within a couple of days of the episode's initial airing. During season five, he put the series on hiatus, but later stated that he may get back to reviewing them eventually. The series appears to be officially defunct in favor of his other series, with episodes of Friendship is Magic eligible for review in said series as of 2018.

Speaking of which, he currently has three series:

  • Animated Atrocities: The most popular of his series. Here, he reviews cartoon episodes considered to be "bad", whether they be examples of bad shows, bad episodes of good shows, failed pilots, bad animated films, or episodes of shows suffering from Seasonal Rot, such as SpongeBob SquarePants or Family Guy. He organizes his Atrocity reviews into 30-episode "seasons". invoked
  • Admirable Animation: In this series he reviews good cartoons, usually ones with well-done, meaningful tearjerkers/heartwarming moments, ones that need more love, others that he finds unique or avant-garde, or ones that showcase how to properly execute certain genres and tropes. Rarely, a good episode of a bad show may be reviewed. Like Animated Atrocities, the Admirable Animations are organized into seasons, each consisting of 25 episodes (as opposed to 30). However, this series is updated far less frequently due to various factors, such as requiring much more work and being driven by his passion for the works in question. As such, he only does them when he feels the time is right. In July 2020, he announced that, for the time being, he will no longer be making this series. The finale episode premiered on March 15, 2021, taking the series to 60 episodes; however, the series was revived on May 6, 2022.
  • Further Thoughts / Behind the Review: Here, he shares his thoughts on a tangential topic touched upon in a prior review, acting as a series of Very Special Episodes that serve as companion pieces to certain episodes of his other series'. Mr. Enter previously shared his thoughts on these topics within the review itself, but later separated the practice into its own series so as not to clutter the review.

On top of his reviews, Mr. Enter occasionally makes opinion pieces and sub-series. These include:

  • Eras of Animation: A retrospective of animation, going decade-by-decade, starting from the pre-1910's era. This, however, seems to have been abandoned.
  • Technocracy: An eight-part documentary series about the various injustices present in social media platforms due to its higher-ups running them without accountability, and the effect it can have on our daily lives. (completed)
    • Episode 1: YouTube focuses on what happens when websites are radically out-of-touch with their userbase, with the specific example of how YouTube mistreats its content creators.
    • Episode 2: Facebook focuses on how your “private” data isn't really private and can be collected by unscrupulous companies.
    • Episode 3: Twitter focuses on the dangers of internet censorship and echo chambers.
    • Episode 4: Tumblr focuses on the impossibility of policing the internet, and the disasters that unfold when companies try, with the specific example of the Tumblr NSFW ban and how it drove away much of their userbase.
    • Episode 5: Digitial Distribution focuses on how users of digital storefronts like Steam don't really “own” the goods they purchase from it.
    • Episode 6: Payment Processors focuses on the cruelty of cutting people off from being able to pay for, or receive payment for, digital goods and services.
    • Episode 7: Google focuses on the dangers that arise when a company gets so massive that it starts amassing political influence.
    • Episode 8: Social Credit Systems focuses on the concept of a Socially Scored Society as seen in China.
  • Family Film Failures: Reviews of poorly done live-action family/children’s films. Only one, Opposite Day, has been made so far.
  • Mixed Messages: Discussions of various takes on An Aesop in animation, and how many are handled poorly. Only one, on swearing, has been done so far.
  • Nick-O-Rama: A retrospective of (almost) every Nicktoon. Initially, Mr. Enter only reviewed Nicktoons which premiered on the main Nickelodeon channel, ignoring shows launched on its sister channels (e.g., Nick Jr., Noggin/The N, Nicktoons Network, etc.), acquired programming (such as those from Nelvana), or shows which lacked an official home video or streaming release; however, Mr. Enter created a second season to cover these shows, as well as correct factual mistakes from the first season.

Much of his content can found on his YouTube account, which can be found here, and he also has a Dailymotion account, which can be found here. He also had a Vimeo account before Fox terminated it in mid-2014. His Patreon where fans can fund reviews is here, and you can check out his own personal website here.

His other creative projects include: note 

  • Brovania: His former YouTube identity, with the since-abandoned goal of doing a Let's Play of all the games listed in 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die.
  • Challenge Accepted, where, starting in April 2018, Mr. Enter has been attempting to play all 1001 video games in the 2013 edition of 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die.

He also has a second channel here where he uploads miscellaneous material; the first 2 chapters of his vocal readings of Little Cassie are uploaded there. His body of work has a discussion thread on the TV Tropes Forum starting here.

The Mysterious Mr. Enter's videos provide examples of:

    open/close all folders 

    Tropes A-M 
  • Abandoned Catchphrase: All 3 of these catchphrases were very commonplace in Enter’s earlier videos but gradually became less prevalent, before disappearing entirely by 2018.
    • “What I’m doing is wrong, I know its wrong, but I’m gonna do it anyway.” In response to a character lampshading the foolishness of their actions or otherwise having an Ignored Epiphany.
    • "Pointing out your problems does not make them go away!" This would be done on response to poorly done Lampshade Hanging of an episode’s plot.
    • "Because, Potatoes". This was used whenever Mr. Enter was at a loss for words or the plot veered into a new direction for no discernible reason. Unlike the former two, however, this catchphrase would make a brief reappearance in his video "Top 10 Worst Spongebob Episodes".
  • Abusive Parents: Having had these himself, he's very sensitive to when the subject is taken lightly, but appreciative when it's handled maturely, as in the "Bob's Father" episode of God, the Devil and Bob.
  • Accentuate the Negative:
  • Accidental Misnaming: During his Cars 2 review, he repeatedly refers to Holley as Polly.
  • Actually Pretty Funny:
  • Adaptation Decay:
    • invokedAlthough he considers the series on its own to be mediocre, he hates Wayside because he believes that they destroyed everything that was good about the books.
    • invoked What he hated the most about Committed is that every character was derailed from their personalities in the comic strip in order to conform to Dom Com cliches.
  • Adults Are Useless: He greatly dislikes this trope as far as parents are concerned.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Averted thoroughly. He even states upfront in his "Peter-assment" review and its follow-up video that this is the most dangerous stereotype placed on males, and that it has led to plenty of social problems.
  • All of Them:
    • He comes to the conclusion that the writers of Planet Sheen used all the drugs to come up with the show.
    • A big complaint about The Problem Solverz was that the animators decided to use virtually all the brightest colors they could think of in the backgrounds. And animate them, of course! The result is a sensory nightmare that even a neurotypical person would struggle to watch, never mind an autistic person. Mr. Enter stated it was very hard to complete the review since he couldn't watch for more than a minute or two without headaches due to Sensory Overload.
      Background Artist #1: What colors should we use for this background?
      Background Artist #2: ALL OF THEM! ALL THE FUCKING COLORS!
    • He has all the questions about the logic of Totally Spies!.
  • Alliterative Title: Animated Atrocities and Admirable Animation.
  • Alternate Character Interpretationinvoked:
    • Played for laughs. G3 Pinkie Pie is a "pink supremacist".
    G3 Pinkie Pie: And I'm Pinkie Pie, and I'm always absolutely, definitely, positively pink, and that makes me special.
    Mr. Enter: Yeah let's see a human being call themselves special based on what color they are.
    • Also, G3 Spike is a Stage Mom who guilt-trips Wysteria into the thankless job of being a princess because he himself wants to be one.
    • SpongeBob literally has no comprehension of right and wrong and thinks that actions have no morality to them.
    • invoked Patrick Star is actually a sociopath putting up a facade of Obfuscating Stupidity for the sake of tormenting those he knows.
    • Chloe is involved in insider trading.
    • The title character from Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island is a sadistic, childish Mad God who forces the islanders to go along with his insane whims or suffer the (incredibly painful) consequences.
    • Norm is a ghost who starved to death long ago by being a terrible hunter.
    • The main characters of Totally Spies! are actually clones of their mothers.
    • Buck Cluck from Chicken Little was only pretending to love Chicken Little.
    • In his review of Shark Tale, he suggested that Sykes seemingly believing Oscar's story and then becoming his manager was actually an elaborate revenge plot on Sykes' part. Sykes knows from the beginning of the film that Oscar is an impulsive liar, and his past get-rich-quick schemes were a big part of the reason Sykes is in debt to Don Lino to begin with. So when Oscar claims to have killed Frankie, Sykes could just be playing along with the deception in order to gain Oscar more widespread publicity and then threaten Lino in his name, deliberately provoking the sharks to target and kill Oscar.
  • An Aesop: He doesn't require that cartoons have morals, but when they're present, he is very insistent that they be done correctly. He uses "Rancid Morality" as a component of Animated Atrocity scores, and harshly criticizes episodes that fail to meet his standards, including Spoof Aesops (unless they are specifically pointed out as such).
  • And I Must Scream: He theorizes in his "Herpe, the Love Sore" review that Family Guy is stuck like this metaphorically. Trying to make bad and offensive episodes on purpose in order to get canceled... but they keep being allowed to live.
  • Angst? What Angst?: Invoked in the Planet Sheen review; he states this is one of the first issues with the show, that Sheen doesn't show any concern that he may never see his family or friends ever again.
  • Animated Shock Comedy: Mr. Enter really dislikes this type of show. Although he doesn't hate South Park (the Trope Codifier), he feels as though imitating it is a cheap ploy, and doesn't think adult animation has to be this. He cites Futurama, King of the Hill, God, the Devil and Bob, Rick and Morty, and especially Bojack Horseman as aversions; and for that he respects them.
    • He cites this trope in his "Top 11 Things I will Never Review" video, stating that while South Park and the original Ren & Stimpy might have episodes worthy of being Admirable or Atrocities, he blames both series too much for the current state of adult cartoons to trust himself to be impartial.
  • Animesque: Enter's current avatar (as drawn by artist ABWingz) has shades of this trope, particularly the sprites for the sickly, enraged, and Giving Up the Ghost expressions.
  • Apologetic Attacker: Downplayed. Upon revealing the 8th item on his "Top 10 Worst Cartoons of the 2000's" video was Drawn Together, he immediately says that he's sorry.
  • April Fools' Day: He does a really unique one in 2015 where his 38th Admirable is the highly requested Food Fight. But it turns out to be a good, and even more surprisingly, modern The Fairly OddParents! episode of the same name. Of course, those who watched his "Top 11 Things I'll Never Review" video should have at least known that he wasn't talking about the movie.
  • Arc Fatigue: invoked In his review of The Emoji Movie, he discusses a common form of this he calls "The Setpieces Plot", where a large bit of the movie is just showing off different settings that could be removed without having much bearing on the plot. He notes that even good movies such as Inside Out are guilty of this, but concedes that it works in most cases because the settings are unique to the story, so even if the plot is stalled it can still be an enjoyable experience for the viewer. The reason it falls flat in The Emoji Movie is because the film's "Setpieces" are already well-known phone apps — you can already play Candy Crush Saga or Just Dance without seeing the movie, so those scenes offer nothing new to the viewer.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking:
    • The "Where Are They Now" segment of his "Truth or Square" review features characters from SpongeBob, as well as PIEGUYRULZ, having interesting epilogues while Mr. Enter himself has a mundane one.
    • When discussing the title character from Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island:
      Mr. Enter: You are one of the most evil things ever conceived, Fred. You blew up the Challenger. You assassinated JFK! You sunk the Titanic! And you copyright struck my fucking video! I worked so hard on it, you dogshit looking freak!
  • Artifact Title: Ever since he's shown his face on camera, he's a lot less mysterious. This is even lampshaded in the title of this video: "Mr. Enter gets a little less mysterious". Zig-zagged after he got a shadowy, mysterious-looking in-video avatar after getting a new editor, making the title more apt, but then changed the avatar again to something resembling his real-life appearance.
  • Artistic License – Marine Biology: He complains in his "One Coarse Meal" review that whales don't eat plankton and that the only thing they eat is krill. Some whales do in fact eat plankton - not all whales, mind you, but krill is not the only thing that every whale ever eats. Additionally, Pearl is a sperm whale, which doesn't eat plankton or krill. He actually brought up this point in his "Top 11 Worst Episodes Reviewed" video, admitting he did some research and found out that some whales do eat plankton... before pointing out that some whales also eat crabs, fish, and squid.
  • Artistic License – Religion: In his review of Seth MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy, he claims that Hinduism is one of the least popular mainstream religions. Hinduism is the world's third-largest religion, with over a billion adherents worldwide.note 
  • At Least I Admit It: In his re-review of SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Pet Sitter Pat", Mr. Enter states that he is aware of all the times he has gone too far in most of his Animated Atrocities videos and admits his mistakes. He also tells the viewers who called him out on them to call him out again if he does the same thing in his future videos.
  • Audience-Alienating Premise: Discussed in his review of The Adventures of Kid Danger. He points out that creating an animated spin-off of Henry Danger would turn off many fans of the original show. However, this means that Kid Danger couldn't rely on fans of the original show to carry it and had to bring in new fans. This becomes rather difficult when the spinoff requires the audience to be familiar with the parent series. invoked
  • Awesome McCoolname: Considers Cherry Chevapravatdumrong, a producer on Family Guy, this.
  • Bait-and-Switch: On April Fools' Day 2015, Mr. Enter led us to believe that he would be reviewing the infamous animated film Foodfight! as an Admirable Animation. It turned out he was reviewing an episode of The Fairly Oddparents titled "Food Fight!".
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Lampshaded in the Planet Sheen review.
    Mr. Enter: Is there ANYTHING in this episode that isn't cliche as all hell!? (text pops up informing him there is) Oh, god, why do I think I'm going to regret that question?
    • His video tackling Extra Credits take on how games should be including more political themes is that not all video games are going to promote progressive and thoughtful politics, and quite a few may promote something hateful.
  • Because I Said So: Brought up in the Mixed Messages pilot as the general explanation for why swearing is bad and noted as a swift way to lose the respect of your audience.
  • Berserk Button:
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment:invoked Referenced by name when referring to a random dance number in Norm of the North.
  • Big "NO!": After the video on "Waffles", the credits song is initially the obvious choice of "Do You Like Waffles?". It barely gets past the first line before Enter cuts it off with one of these and switches it to the Samurai Jack theme.
    "Do you like waffles? Yeah we—"
  • Birthday Episode:
    • In the 2016 Atrocity review of Paddy the Pelican, Mr. Enter mentions that his birthday was a few days away and reviews this cartoon as an early present for himself.
    • The review of The Lion King (2019) is a more poignant example, even though it was released about a month late.
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: In his review of Elf Bowling: The Movie, when he's comparing it to Tentacolino, he concedes that some of the weirdness in the latter might be the result of a bad Italian-to-English translation.
  • Book Ends: In his "Cold War" review, he is shown to dislike the use of these in comedies, specifically the "Flowers for Algernon" Syndrome variant, as it feels like the characters learned nothing from the experience and that it was completely pointless. Another argument he makes in his "Top 25 Modern SpongeBob Episodes" video can relate to this, stating that since the Status Quo Is God is bound to occur by the end of the episode anyway, it is unnecessary to revert the change in-universe.
  • Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: When reviewing Equestria Girls, he has this to say about the re-use of sound effects from when Twilight meets Fluttershy in the pilot when she meets the alternate version of her:
    Mr Enter: I don't know if that's clever, or if that's lazy, or if that's cleverly lazy.
    • In his review of Seth Mac Farlanes Cavalcade Of Cartoon Comedy His impression of the writer(s) talking to the audience!
      Mr. Enter: The joke is more or less "Penis!" Wow, they finally got into the sixth grade!
      Mr. Enter as the writer(s): Do you get it? It's a penis... and it's a thing, it does penis things!
  • Breather Episode:
    • His review of "Truth or Square", especially since the last two episodes were infamous for their gross-out moments.
    • The "Doggy Poo" review, which comes after Mr. Enter's look at 1970s cartoon atrocities and before the "Screams of Silence" review.
  • Brick Joke:
    • In his review of "Staring at the Future" he called the show Toddler Titans as a Take That! to its Character Derailment. And in the review of "Waffles", the show the episode belonged to is called Toddler Titans.
    • In his original Top 20 Best Cartoon Theme Songs, he wonders how the singer of the Ben 10 sang the song in the style she did. In the 2023 remake, he says he still wants to know how she does it.
  • Bring It: His "Mr. Enter Strikes Back" video culminates in him delivering an ultimatum to the copyright trolls who have been attacking him.
  • Broken Base: Invoked. Admits that his "Twilight's Kingdom" review will either be his best review or his worst review depending on who you are.
  • Broken Pedestal: He released two episodes reviewing the web series Extra Credits, a series he once was a devoted fan of.
  • Broke the Rating Scale:
    • "Putting Your Hoof Down" and "Rainbow Falls" are the only Friendship Is Magic episodes to have negative scores. Most notably, the former episode dropped from the default five points to one point almost instantly due to Angel Bunny's Domestic Abuse of Fluttershy.
      Mr. Enter: [referring to the writers] Okay, you two dumbasses. You want to start at the bottom? We'll start at the bottom! [! tally is busted from four !'s to one]
    • On a more positive note, his review of "Hurricane Fluttershy" averts this. The episode had earned the maximum ten points fairly quickly, and despite wanting to add another one, Mr. Enter couldn't add another point beyond that. He later took a snide remark from Spike as an excuse to deduct a point so he could add the point from earlier.
    • In his "Twilight's Kingdom" review, he states right at the beginning that he has found no narrative flaws and thus eschews the point system entirely.
  • Brown Note: Invoked when he claimed that just looking at an episode of The Problem Solverz was enough to hurt his eyes and that shortly after the review, he developed myopia.
  • Bumbling Dad: In his review of Glenn Martin, DDS, he reveals that he is really sick of this trope because, in his words, it describes the father of "literally every sitcom and commercial since 1992", and it's been done to death, and that even just Homer Simpson on his own has done everything that is possible to do with this trope.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Cites this as the justification for how an idiot like SpongeBob has a job and compares it to Fanboy and Chum Chum, who have no such justification for being employed at a convenience store.note 
  • Butt-Monkey: This trope is not a favorite of his, especially if a work is dedicated to it.
    • His main argument on the matter is that character abuse only works when the character has done something to deserve it in the same episode, and more often than not, they don't.
    • He even now refers to a character who exists solely to be this as a "Megward the Wizard", a bizarre portmanteau name comprising Meg Griffin from Family Guy, Squidward Tentacles from SpongeBob SquarePants and Kyle the Wizard from Fanboy and Chum Chum; which he calls an admission of laziness to create worthwhile characters.
  • Call-Back/Call-Forward: The reason Patrick Star made "the nutshack theme but every nutshack is replaced with mr enter's review of the nutshack" to troll Mr. Enter with is because Mr. Enter stuffed Robin's suggestion box with "Get canceled" and one "Robin stinks". Keep in mind "having a pat time" is the reason Mr. Enter did not try to get Legends of Chamberlain Heights canceled.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "What I'm doing is <X>, I know it's <X>, but I'm gonna do it anyway."
    • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: "Because... <X>!" Whenever he can't come up with anything resembling a reason, it's "Because... potatoes!"
    • "Pointing out your problems does not make them go away!"
    • "This can only end so well", and alternatively, "This should be fun."
    • "Sure, why not?"
    • Usually, whenever he does a review of an episode/show/movie that was heavily requested and/or he wanted to review for a while but hasn't yet, he opens it up with "Well, this one was a long time coming."
  • Catharsis Factorinvoked: He finds doing Animated Atrocities to be this.
  • Caustic Critic: Played straight with Animated Atrocities but averted everywhere else. In fact, one of the reasons he created the Admirable Animations series was to avoid being labelled as one.
    • During The Problem Solverz review, the Old Man accuses Mr. Enter of becoming this trope more and more since "Ren Seeks Help", which he had tried to talk him out of reviewing, and suggests that Tranquil Fury is the most effective way to convey his complaints.
  • Character Tics: When addressing someone, he often starts his sentence by saying "hey" twice ("Hey, hey writers?").
  • Cliché Storm:invoked "Power Ponies" plays this trope completely straight according to him, despite its trying to be a parody of superhero clichés.
  • Cliffhanger: There's an ominous one at the end of his "Demolition Doofus" review. It's for his Top 25 Modern SpongeBob episode list, for his next Admirable Animation.
  • Clueless Aesop:
    • Finds this to be the main problem with "Arthur's Big Hit", where it's trying to teach "it's not okay to hit people", but instead comes across as "it's not okay to hit people... unless they've happened to hit someone else, in which case they deserve it, no matter how badly they feel about it."
    • In a similar vein, "Nobody Doesn't Like TJ". The moral it's going for is "You have to accept that not everyone will like you", but it rolls over to the other character and comes across as "It's okay to dislike someone for no reason."
    • He also finds this problem with "Feeling Pinkie Keen", "The Mysterious Mare Do Well", and "One Bad Apple". Even writing an essay about how the latter fails at its moral.
    • He also fell into this trap himself in his Mixed Messages video about swearing, where he tried to argue against teaching children not to swear. One of his arguments equated not swearing out of respect for other people with giving into peer pressure, which he treated as universally bad even though the two are only tangentially related. Especially given how he commonly berates other writers for not thinking through the nuances and implications of some of their morals.
  • Complaining About Complaining: A large portion of his "Twilight's Kingdom" review has him ranting about all the negativity that other analysts have shown toward the show of late.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: In his re-review of "The Splinter", he reveals that since he originally reviewed it, he has seen much worse stuff, and declares that this episode no longer freaks him out, making its main problem go from "just disgusting" to "plain boring".
  • Content Warnings:
    • There is a disclaimer at the beginning of some of his videos warning the viewer that they might find the video disturbing whenever the episode he's reviewing contains disturbing content.
    • He found "Ren Seeks Help" so heinous that he felt a much stronger warning was warranted. And another content warning in the middle of the review to mark the Point of No Return.
      Voice Over: Some viewers may find this disturbing—
      Mr. Enter: Stop. Right. "Some" viewers. I want you all to listen to me very carefully. First of all, if you don't know what a placenta is, you're too young to watch the review of this episode. As for the episode itself, I don't think that I'm old enough to watch the actual episode. But here we are. I've reviewed many terrible episodes from a variety of different cartoons. And I thought that I could take on anything. But this one almost tapped me out. It can change who you are. Beyond just giving you nightmares, or making you think that the writer's a sadistic fuck. It has the ability to kill hope. It has the ability to kill sanity. It has the ability to kill innocence. I may be going down here, but I'm bringing this fucker down with me.
      Mr. Enter: This is your last chance. This is where the episode brings us to hell. It's going to show you some fucking screwed up things, and I'm not going to censor anything. Doing so would defeat the purpose of this review. Everyone out who wants to go, out (except me obviously)? Good.
    • The Problem Solverz gets a unique content warning for epilepsy.
    • Since it was uploaded after Mr. Enter resolved to control his anger during his reviews, his review of "Screams of Silence" starts with a warning that he'll be in "Angry mode" throughout the review; The episode portrays Domestic Abuse so poorly, not only does he not think he could take on the episode calmly, he doesn't think he should even try. (In his recap, he is noticeably calmer).
    • The Drawn Together movie, his 100th Animated Atrocities episode, starts with a warning that goes the extra mile from his usual opening but doesn't waste any time.
      Almost all viewers will find this disturbing. Viewer discretion is mandatory. It's baaaaaaad
  • Continuity Nod: In the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic review of the episode "The Show Stoppers" (from 2013), one of two things that Mr. Enter says is a saving grace is Scootaloo ramming her head on a piano (while saying "Never, never, never!"), and he says that he will save it as a reaction clip. When he reviews the episode "Honest Apple" in 2022, he brings back the clip, and then does a Jump Cut to his live-action self saying that he said he would keep it.
  • "Could Have Avoided This!" Plot: Lampshaded in his "Stuck in the Wringer" review.
    Mr. Enter: Patrick tries to cheer SpongeBob up instead of, I don't know, TAKING HIM TO A HOSPITAL!
    • He states that "Little Yellow Book" could have worked without the townspeople's hypocrisy and Squidward showing regret for his actions, saying the writers could have gone with the typical diary plotline.
  • Cowboy BeBop at His Computer: For an In-Universe example, one of the many things he criticized about the 1001 Games You Must Play Before You Die book was Garry's Mod being labeled a roleplaying game.
  • Creative Sterility: He considers Da Boom Crew to be this, as he says that it does nothing but steal from other shows.
  • Crossover: Does one with ThomasMemoryCentral for the "A Pal For Gary" Animated Atrocity, and one with Voice of Reason for the "Bird of Paradise vs. Friendship is Magic" Admirable Animation.
  • Crowning Moment of Indifference: His opinion of Uncle Grandpa.
    • Later Played With in his "Top 11 Things That I'll Never Review" video. He actually doesn't find the show average; he's simply so unable to relate to anything that happens in it that he literally does not have an opinion of it. To him, it's not good, bad, or mediocre; it's an anomaly that he can't even try to critique because he literally cannot say anything subjective about it whatsoever.
  • Damned by Faint Praise: When discussing why he didn't put The Adventures of Kid Danger in "Top 10 Worst Cartoons of the 2010s", he justifies this by saying that the only reason why he had mercy on it by not including it on the list is because unlike a certain other superhero show reboot, at least Kid Danger didn't kill a franchise that he was emotionally tied too.
  • invokedDancing Bear: This trope is the reason he's so disappointed with "Flip Flopped". In his opinion, it has a wonderfully creative premise: kids are adults and adults are kids, but it does absolutely nothing creative with it, such as seeing how immature kids fare with the daily responsibilities of an adult. The kids-as-adults still act exactly like adults and vice versa, and the story it told was otherwise unbearably cliche.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's a very sarcastic guy, to say the least.
    Mr. Enter: Do you know what I love? I love copyright bullshit! I love how Hasbro can block my videos worldwide at random! I love how Hasbro can claim copyright on two-second videos! I love how Hasbro can claim copyright on videos I've already won copyright battles on! I love how they can claim copyright on Snowdrop and Double Rainboom — oh, wait, claim copyright on reviews of Snowdrop and Double Rainboom! And I definitely love how they knowingly reinstate copyright claims on those videos, but not as much as I love getting a copyright strike for fighting back and being unable to post 15-minute-or-longer videos while I get it fixed. I mean, come on, Hasbro!
  • Death of the Author: He insists that the Danny Phantom theme begins with "Yo, Danny Fenton" rather than "Young Danny Fenton" as Butch Hartman claims, since calling someone a young 14-year-old is redundant and awkward. invoked
  • Demonization: Played for Laughs in his "Top 10 Worst Cartoons of the 1990s" review, in which he explains that, because Caillou premiered when Millennials were in its target audience, and the show has the message that throwing a temper tantrum will always get you what you want, that the show is therefore responsible for all of society's current problems. invoked
  • Description Cut: Inverted hilariously in the Tentacolino review.
    Mr. Enter: And then Captain Planet comes by driving a golden chariot carried by pink and green sea ponies to take the humans to the magic kingdom of Atlantis.
    [cut to the movie doing just that]
  • Designated Hero invoked: Along with Designated Villain. These are two of his biggest problems with modern SpongeBob, particularly in episodes like "One Coarse Meal" and "A Breath of Fresh Squidward".
    Mr. Enter: Like I said, it's not so much that this episode has the worst torment given to Squidward, or even the worst put together. It's that the episode expects me to buy the SpongeBob that I've dealt with in "Boating Buddies" and "Choir Boys" and "Cephalopod Lodge" and "Good Neighbors" as the good guy, and the Squidward in those very episodes as the bad guy. Let's just say that that's perhaps the most insulting thing that a writer can try and do.
    • This was also the biggest problem with Teen Titans Go!, with Beast Boy and Cyborg devolving into selfish assholes who literally refuse to accept responsibility, even when they won't benefit in any way from being irresponsible, while in the original, they were cheerful and fun-loving, but knew when to take life seriously.
    • This was also one of his issues with "The Substitute" as he believes that Nanette Manoir's actions are tame, especially compared to Angela's.
  • Despair Event Horizon:
    • After the scene in "Putting Your Hoof Down" when Fluttershy insults Rarity and Pinkie Pie's reasons for living, making them cry and run off, he deducts a point, pushing the episode into negatives, and he becomes a lot more depressed for the rest of the review.
      Mr. Enter: This moment has pushed this episode from abysmal to irredeemable.
    • During the Breadwinners review, he falls into despair after ranting about Nickelodeon, but he regains his spirit after being reminded of what Nickelodeon once was.
    • invoked He launches into one after Derrick, the yellow baby in Mega Babies, lets out an entire ocean of vomit... In his Worst-of-the-90's video, he explained that the ensuing pep-talk speech wasn't a gag - Watching it almost made him stop reviewing altogether because of how repulsive that one moment was.
    • invoked In his Top Ten Patrick's-A-Prick Moments, the number one spot goes to "The Card". Specifically, where he got the Alternate Character Interpretation that Patrick is actually using Obfuscating Stupidity to disguise being a total douche. And then we learn that he named his dog after Patrick. His tone is flat and lost after this.
    • He has mentioned that he felt part of himself die after watching "Ren Seeks Help" and has added that it can induce this to others.
    • Where the Dead Go to Die disturbed him so much that he shows his face in a vlog to explain why it's too depraved for an Animated Atrocity review. Aside from a quick snark at The Problem Solverz for now needing glasses, he sounds emotionally deadened throughout. The concept that such a film could be made, and worse yet with the alleged intention of comedy, traumatized him to the point of delaying his Mars Needs Moms review to seriously think about the abomination he'd just watched.
    • He has mentioned in his notebook review of The Brothers Grunt that he does not want to have any screenshot of any footage outside of the title screen due to how grotesque it is to the point that he could cross it again.
    • His review of The Emoji Movie crosses it before the video begins with clips from other internet reviewers' opinions on the movie assembled in a creepy Found Footage style and accompanied by the sound of Mr. Enter slowly going Laughing Mad.
  • Determinator: He intends to review all of My Little Pony (G3) and every bad episode of SpongeBob SquarePants and Family Guy for Animated Atrocity, and he doesn't let any copyright bullshit stop him. One of his videos taken down under a false claim? He'll send disputes and counter-notifications. Or he'll just put the video on another website. Whatever works, right?
  • Diabolus ex Machina: He loathes these due to how nonsensical and irritating they can get after being invoked for a while. He hates these so much, in fact, that he named the episode the Kanker Sisters were introduced in Ed, Edd n Eddy as the tenth worst episode of the show due to how often they come in out of nowhere to end an episode by dishing out pain to the Eds, instead of shooting for a more organic ending.
  • Disability as an Excuse for Jerkassery: Defied in his "Mr. Enter gets a little less mysterious" Vlog. He shows disgust at people that do this, including the "crazies" that attack his videos, and accepts responsibility for his actions regardless of his own condition.
  • Double Standard Rape: Female on Male: He's outright stated that this trope disgusts him. In his review of "Lupe's Revenge" he touched on this, though he later said that he should have gone much further into it. He later discussed this in his review of "Peter-Assment" and noted the outright dangerous precedent society has placed on men that they are always willing to have sex with any woman who wants the right to their genitals, and that if they decline they are either mentally unwell or gay.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Male on Male: Doesn't think the throwaway joke in Allen Gregory that Allen's father, Richard, rapes his heterosexual trophy husband was at all amusing.
  • Driven to Suicide: He's particularly sensitive to stories that use this trope, especially when its Suicide as Comedy. In his first "Top Ten Worst Episodes I've Reviewed" video, he stated that he's aware that suicide can be used for effective comedy, but you need to know how, otherwise you'll just make the whole thing incredibly awkward at best and horribly insulting at worst.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: His review of "Cephalopod Lodge" gives us this gem after Squidward was kicked out of the titular lodge:
    Roger: Well, if it wasn't your fault, and it wasn't Squidward's fault, whose fault was it?
    Patrick: Uh...Maybe it's your fault.
    Mr. Enter: You know, seeing how you're the door guard, that's a distinct possibility.
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: His earlier Friendship Is Magic reviews didn't have a hit-point system nor did he give out star rankings but instead just the medal rankings.
    • The fact that he started out reviewing episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic before doing animated atrocities and admirable animations became this after he lost interest in reviewing the show after Season 4.
  • Enraged by Idiocy: If a character acts irrationally, destructively, and maliciously stupid, expect Enter to be up in arms.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He notes in "Climbing out of the Copyright Abyss" that, as much as he hates the idea of supporting Viacom, he'll still keep purchasing their episodes for review, noting that he purchases every episode and movie he reviews if he can.
  • Evil, Inc.: He sees Viacom, Google, Hasbro, and Fox as this due to them all being extremely obsessive about their copyrights. Especially Viacom since they had (albeit temporarily) terminated his YouTube account.
  • The Faceless: Early on, he repeatedly stated that he would never show his face. Since August of 2014, he has dropped this gimmick and would show himself in the flesh on occasion.
  • Fandom-Enraging Misconceptioninvoked: Mr. Enter has this to say during his review of My Life Me when Sandra disparages cheerleading as not an actual sport:
    Mr. Enter: Suggest that cheerleading is not a sport to any actual cheerleader and you will get hurt.
  • Fanon Discontinuityinvoked: Played for laughs in his "Fresh Heir" review in which he believes that "Christmas Guy" never happened and that Brian Griffin is still dead.
    Mr. Enter: "HOLY SHIT A GHOST! La la la, I can't hear you, you're supposed to be dead!"

    "Maybe I will review "Christmas Guy", maybe I won't. Seth Mac Farlane may have brought Brian back, but he's still dead to me."
  • Fantastic Racism: Feels that "Dragon Quest" is guilty of this, portraying dragons as morally corrupted jerks, and the only reason Spike is a good guy is because he was raised by ponies.
  • Fatal Flaw:
    • His least favorite writer on MLP:FIM is Charlotte Fullerton. Due to her having the recurring flaw of her episodes having one or more moments where all logic is thrown out the window.
    • For Enter himself, Wrath. It doesn't take much to arouse his anger, and when enraged, he goes on a rampage. This is taken to a head in his Problem Solverz review where he's about to go nuclear until the Crazy Old Man calls him out on his anger because of his increasingly rage-filled reviews.
  • The Firefly Effectinvoked: He is not interested in OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, not because of the show itself, but because he expects Cartoon Network to bury it under Teen Titans Go!. Subverted, though in that it's actually turned out to be one of the network's more frequently aired series.
  • Flanderization: In a general sense, Mr. Enter feels that justifying a dumb or jerk character's actions and problem-causing just because it's in-character can lead to bad flanderization.
    • He feels that Pinkie Pie from Friendship is Magic has had her more eccentric personality traits heavily exaggerated in the show's later seasons. So far this is one of his only major complaints regarding the later seasons of the show. He feels it reached an absolute low in "Filli Vanilli", where she made multiple insensitive comments that made him very angry. After this point, however, he stated that the problems with Pinkie finally just vanished, and she was portrayed much better.
    • He also finds that Patrick from SpongeBob SquarePants has gone through a huge flanderization, going from a well-meaning The Ditz who is Innocently Insensitive at worst and always shows his card for his friends, to an intolerable moron who is so clueless it is a wonder how he goes through life, and a major Jerkass who treats his friends with contempt. In fact, in his Top 10 Worst Patrick's a Prick episode list, he says "I mean, there's flanderization, and then there's just... being whatever the hell happened to you!"
  • Foreshadowing:
    • A few lines in his "Top 10 Patrick's a Prick Episodes", such as "If SpongeBob doesn't understand morality, then you don't fucking care about it." and "I love it when he was crying harder when the toy store was closed", all hint towards him coming to the conclusion that Patrick is The Sociopath near the end.
    • When he talks about Big Mouth in "Top 10 Worst Cartoons of the 2010's", he mentions that the show takes a lot of influence from Family Guy, which he says is "problem #1". Guess which show takes the #1 spot as the worst cartoon of the decade?
      • Speaking of that list, his decision to not include Teen Titans Go! on the list or the dishonorable mentions is foreshadowed by the fact that when he did talk about the show on the list, he had good things to say about it.
  • Formula-Breaking Episode:
    • The redone "Look Before You Sleep" review shows Mr. Enter going to a brony bar and lamenting about the episode. This was because his original review was copyright killed by Hasbro.
    • Downplayed with the "Truth or Square" atrocity. Enter reviewed the Patchy segments along with the SpongeBob ones, in what will probably be the closest we get to a review of non-animation. He naturally doesn't want to do it since Patchy is live-action, but PIEGUYRULZ convinces him by saying the segments are written and acted like they're animated and the ones in this particular episode have animated bits.
    • Where the Dead Go to Die was so bad he resorted to talking about it in another live-action video while detailing how and why he considered it to be too bad for a proper review. He even noted in a DeviantArt journal that he felt it didn't even deserve an Animated Atrocity Notepage.
    • The Technocracy series is a rather sobering, infuriating, and sometimes alarming look into the enormous power tech companies hold over society.
  • Franchise Original Sininvoked:
    • Mr. Enter frequently discusses Seasonal Rot so it's common for him to acknowledge that the problems the shows run into were still there even when the show was good. His discussions on the Powerpuff Girls reboot frequently come back to this as he felt the original PPG was hit with the rot quite bad near the end of it. While the reboot is bad in different ways, a number of its problems can be traced back to the original show.
    • He also discusses widely-criticized broader industry trends and their roots when they were more well-liked. For example, while he doesn't hate The Ren & Stimpy Show, South Park or Shrek, he believes each of the three properties had unintended negative effects on American animation due to newer properties copying certain elements they contained without a proper understanding of why those elements worked.
  • Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: Mr. Enter is a firm believer that a villain's actions can never be justified with a sob story or can be justified because the villain is part of a minority group.
  • Fridge Brillianceinvoked:
  • Fridge Horrorinvoked:
    • A single joke in "The Card" was what convinced Mr. Enter that everything Patrick had done was on purpose and that he is really a sociopath who enjoys tormenting his friends.
    • On a lesser note, in his review of "Lesson Zero" of Friendship Is Magic, when a very unhinged Twilight casts a spell on a doll that causes people to love, want, and obsess over it, and says "works every time", Mr. Enter's only response is to go "Wait. You've used it before!? What is WRONG with you!?"
    • His realization that whenever he sees a cartoon with particularly grotesque sexualized Gorn (such as with Mr. Pickles or King Star King) that somewhere, someone is actually masturbating to it.
  • From Bad to Worse: In his "Nick-O-Rama" series, he declared Sanjay and Craig to be the absolute worst cartoon he has ever seen. A mere five reviews later, he changed his mind after suffering through Bunsen Is a Beast.
  • Gag Dub: To prove a point about how Drawn Together's cast was "given absolutely no direction to differentiate themselves from their other roles," he shows Tara Strong's other roles saying Princess Clara's dialogue: Twilight Sparkle calling Mrs. Cake "servant girl" and Bubbles saying she cuts herself.
  • Gag Sub: Frustrated with the Martians' dialogue not being subtitled in his Mars Needs Moms review, he adds his own subtitles when the Martians spot Milo and Gribble coming out of the trash chute:
    Martian Supervisor: I need to take a shit, get out of my way!
    Martian Soldier: The supervisor needs to take a shit! Battle stations everyone!
  • Gateway Seriesinvoked: Turnabout Storm was how he got into Friendship is Magic.
  • Gibberish of Love: This is one trope he's gone on record as disliking; he believes that there are many better ways to show a character's affection than doing this, and feels that it's become trite and overused over the years.
  • Godzilla Threshold: A more benign example than most. As stated above, he repeatedly said he'd never show his face, and didn't for over a year. However, in August 2014, he decided that nothing short of such would allow him to properly thank his fans, so he went back on those statements.
  • George Lucas Altered Version: On his website, a few of his reviews have been edited to fix some audio glitches.
  • Got Me Doing It: He breaks into rhyming when reviewing The Night B4 Christmas and says that it rubbed off on him.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: Breaks into it in his "Lupe's Revenge" review to insult Peggy Hill whenever she displays her lack of understanding of the language.
    • In his "Shorty McShorts' Shorts" review, as a Running Gag, he replies "Me no habla espanol." every time a character in the review speaks in a language that isn't English.
  • Green Aesop: Inverted by Mr. Enter in his Norm of the North Animated Atrocity, as he claims the moral is Pollute the Arctic as much as possible, kill off all the animals in it and melt it with a giant magnifying glass Mr. Enter bought with the money he got back from refunding the movie, all so that a movie like Norm of the North will never happen again.
  • Gross-Up Close-Up: In his review of The Nutshack, we get a zoom-in on his new avatar, and it's not pretty.
  • Growing the Beardinvoked: In his Admirable Animation for "A Kind Mamodo, Kolulu", he states that, in his opinion, this episode is where Zatch Bell went from being just a good show to a great show.
  • Guilty Pleasureinvoked:
    • Just because he fails an episode in his MLP reviews doesn't mean that he hates it. "Feeling Pinkie Keen", "The Mysterious Mare Do Well", "MMMystery on the Friendship Express", "Spike at Your Service", and "Trade Ya" all received failing scores, but he doesn't count them among episodes he dislikes.
      • Currently, there are only three episodes he legitimately hates: "Putting Your Hoof Down" (for its mean-spiritedness), "Dragon Quest" (for unintentionally insulting the show's core message), and "Rainbow Falls" (for poor writing and a contrived plot). "Putting Your Hoof Down" and "Rainbow Falls" are the only FiM episodes he has labeled as Animated Atrocities (with "Dragon Quest" not being an animated atrocity due to mostly telling a cohesive story, and the Unfortunate Implications being incidental).
    • Inverted in that he dislikes the MLP episode "Hearts & Hooves Day" and The Powerpuff Girls episode "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey" despite finding them good episodes.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He tends to blow a lot of gaskets on his Animated Atrocities show.
    • Then again, he tries his best not to get so dang frustrated at too many things.
  • Hard Work Fallacy: He targets this in his last Unpopular Opinion video, Worker's Woes, as a response to a common criticism he got from his negative reviews- that the creators worked hard on it. As he explains, it is entirely possible to pour all your effort into something and still have it turn out bad.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Invoked in his review of Norm of the North (a movie released in 2016), where he points out that having the Big Bad wield a tranquilizer gun with intent to use it on the title character in public isn't funny anymore, and hints at the increased spate of public shootings as a reason why.
  • Head Desk: Repeatedly banging his head against a wall is a Running Gag in his Shark Tale review.
  • Heroic BSoD: A literal example occurs during the review of "Fresh Heir":
    On-Screen Text: A problem has been detected and Mr. Enter has been shut down to protect his brain. If this is the first time you've seen this error screen, you know that you've come across some truly fucked up shit. Please do not adjust your computer. What you saw was indeed above and beyond disturbing, and can only be brought up by the most perverted of minds. Please stand by.
  • He's Back!: He managed to get his account restored after it was completely terminated.
  • History Repeats: He has this point of view on modern PSAs about issues such as the environment or anti-racism. He feels that they're akin to the anti-drug PSAs from the '80s and '90s that were mocked for being alarmist, sensationalist, and promoting exaggerated information about drug use, only for the current era of PSAs to be similar in terms of tone and oversimplification of the situation.
  • The Horseshoe Effect: As per being a self-described centrist (of the independent but politically-minded type), he has proclaimed his belief that the Left and Right are similar in terms of the way they express themselves and reach conclusions on political and social matters, and believes that this can be really apparent in the media they produce (such as their PSAs). The tendency for both political camps to promote poorly thought out messages frustrates him.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Defied in his review of The Emoji Movie; he mentioned at one point that he was gonna have a running gag of "Products I Will Never Use Again" throughout the review for every bit of Product Placement, but two of the programs the movie showcases (YouTube and Dropbox) are too vital for him, and he didn't want to be a hypocrite for the sake of a joke.
  • I Can't Believe I'm Saying This: Mr. Enter literally cannot believe he is complimenting Family Guy when he says that they do Cutaway Gags better than The Nutshack during his review of the latter.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: His review of Chicken Little has him say "I need a vodka" after Chicken Little says "I need a soda".
  • I Never Said It Was Poison: In his video dealing with his cyberstalker, he notes that after he took down his Tumblr, someone commented on his DeviantArt asking if it had anything to do with his stalker... before he mentioned that he even had a cyberstalker. This not only proved that said person was his stalker, it proved that they knew that what they were doing was stalking and continued to do it anyway.
  • Informed Species: One of the many complaints he has for "Over Two Rainbows" is that the hideous character models look nothing like ponies or equines of any kind.
  • Inherently Funny Words:
    • Deconstructed in his review of "Waffles," where he criticizes the episode for relying on the word "Waffles" itself for comedy (and running it to the ground), when it would work better as part of a joke.
    • In his review of "Samurai Quack," he points out how out-of-place the monkey wearing lederhosen was in the climax, and assumes that someone really wanted Aku to say "monkey wearing lederhosen." Not that he blames them.
    • This is most likely the reasoning behind his "Because... potatoes." catchphrase.
  • Innocent Awkward Question: Discussed in one video where Enter learns that the song that the Totally Spies! theme was based on had a lyric about sex. He then imagines a kid asking, "Mommy, what does sex mean?".
  • Insult to Rocks: His recap of the SpongeBob episode "The Splinter".
    Mr. Enter: To call this episode a piece of utter shit would be an insult to shit.
  • Irony: In his review of "Love Loaf", he proclaimed that Nickelodeon was no longer one of the big three kids networks due to its recent string of terrible shows and that The Hub has taken its place. Within two years of making that video, The Hub has imploded into Discovery Family and only seems to have one very popular show still airing while Nickelodeon has seen a noticeable resurgence in quality with shows like Harvey Beaks and The Loud House, both of which he likes.
  • It's Been Done: Much of his "Top 11 Things That I'll Never Review" video focuses on this: he won't review Over the Garden Wall because everyone's already said how awesome it is, nor Foodfight! or "Family Guy S 7 E 11 Not All Dogs Go To Heaven" because everyone's already said how bad they are.
    • He also refuses to review Velma for the same reason, as he feels the show has already been criticized enough.
  • It's Not Supposed to Win Oscars: invoked A mentality he dislikes, as many detractors pester him over and over about how animation should not be criticized, whether it's for children or adults.
  • I Work Alone: While he occasionally does collaborations for his Animated Atrocities, he has stated that his pony videos will always be all him.
  • "Just Joking" Justification: In his "Talking About My Online Harassment" video, Mr. Enter responds to one of the YouTube users who responded to Mr. Enter's Indiegogo campaign slandered him by insinuating he was a pedophile just because he happened to write a book and cartoon series about children while accusing him of stripping down and flashing his "Johnny" to the younger viewers. Right after he debunks this contention, the people who were siding with the opposing user, including the user himself, tried to justify it as a joke.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Let's just say that he really dislikes this trope, at least if it's used as a cheap way to handle a work's problems without actually justifying/fixing them:
    Mr. Enter: Pointing out your problems does not make them go away!
    Mr. Enter: What I'm doing is stupid/wrong, I know it's stupid/wrong, but I'm gonna do it anyway.
    • However, he feels that Lampshade humor can be done right, citing Dave the Barbarian as an example in his "Ned Frichman, Man of Tomorrow" review.
  • Laughing Mad: An epic one at the start of his The Emoji Movie review.
  • Large Ham: All over in his "Positively Pink" review.
  • Let's Play: He was a Let's Player before becoming a reviewer, though he still does one from time to time. As he did ones of Sissy's Magical Ponycorn Adventure, (calling it "the best game ever"), Epic! The Humorous RPG, and Game Dev Tycoon.
  • Let's See YOU Do Better!: Discussed here. He feels that, while writing is an art that takes skill and can be done in many different ways, there's also a craft to it that cannot be ignored with the excuse of "it can be written in any way, so you shouldn't criticize it since you aren't a real writer".
  • Mad Libs Dialogue: His Friendship is Witchcraft review contains a few moments of this.
    Mr. Enter: ...Kind of what a—PARODY.—is supposed to do.
  • Made in Country X: The "Terrible Art/Products are Made in Country X" variety is frequently brought up in his reviews of Canadian shows like Wayside and Donkey Kong Country, as he accuses Teletoon of always having the lowest production values for their original series (never mind that the network is not an animation studio, nor does it have an in-house one like Cartoon Network does) and even says Canadian cartoons are the reason people make fun of Canada.
  • Manchild: Invoked when discussing the character of Allen Gregory, in particular disputing the show's claims that Allen is an 'extremely mature-for-his-age child'. He cites actual mature child characters such as Double D and Blossom for reference and states that Allen isn't written as a mature child, but a dangerously immature adult.
  • Mary Sue: Mr. Enter discusses the definition and use of this trope in "The Great Fairy Share Scare". He compares the featured episode's usage — in which the trope is played straight — to an episode of Recess which mocked this kind of character.invoked
  • Mind Rape: Mr. Enter considers Da Boom Crew's Jubei's voice as "pain to my ears and my psyche".
  • The Mockbuster: In his review of The Night B4 Christmas, he implies it is one to Elf:
    Mr. Enter: Yeah it kinda looks like it's ripping off The Year Without a Santa Claus. And it's almost like Elf, which came out the same year. Huh, that's incredibly odd. It's like they made something quick and on the cheap to cash in on that movie's success.
  • Moral Event Horizoninvoked:
    • He thinks Mr. Krabs crossed it in "One Coarse Meal" when he tried to make Plankton commit suicide.
    • He also says Patrick crossed it in "Pet Sitter Pat" when he tried to burn Gary alive with a flamethrower, going so far as to call him a literal monster.
    • He believes Brian Griffin crossed it in "Herpe, the Love Sore" for knowingly giving Stewie and Chris herpes and treating it like it was no big deal.
  • Morton's Fork: In his "Truth or Square" review, he notes that the scene where Patchy rings for entry to Nickelodeon to see SpongeBob is creepy because if SpongeBob isn't real, then Patchy thinks that a cartoon character is real, but if he is real, then it's creepy because Patchy wrote him over 400 letters... this week.
  • My Future Self and Me: His review of The Lion King (2019) was uploaded on his 28th birthday, and featured him interacting with his 8-year-old self and his 18-year-old self. The credits imply that the Old Man is in fact an even older version of him from the far future (due to the Old Man being credited As Himself).
  • My God, You Are Serious!: In his review of "Doggy Poo", he mentions that, after marveling at the beautiful animation, he laughed when a dog came by and crapped out the titular character just as the background music hit its peak because he thought it was supposed to be a parody. He found out quickly he was wrong.

    Tropes N-Z 
  • Nausea Fuelinvoked: Mr. Enter does not like this, nor does he generally like shows revolving around them.
    • In his "Little Yellow Book" review, seeing Patrick say that ketchup will go great with an old diaper made him vomit four times.
      Mr. Enter: I was making jokes about your plot holes in "Smooth Jazz in Bikini Bottom'', but you came right out and said that Patrick literally eats shit!
    • Though that was obviously fake, he claimed to have genuinely vomited during his first viewing of "The Splinter" when the titular wound reached its final stage, and during "Spit Collector" at the sight of Wayne Cramp consuming drool.
    • This was his main issue with the 'Mega Babies'' episode "Poop Doggy Dog", to the point that he temporarily crosses the Despair Event Horizon after one baby coats a street with vomit.
    • In his vlog about Where the Dead Go to Die, he also mentions that this was a similar issue as to why he would never review it, to the point that he crosses the Despair Event Horizon even further than in Mega Babies after watching it.
    • He has stated that he only put the title screen of The Brothers Grunt for his notebook review picture due to how grotesque it is to the point that he didn't want a still of anything outside of the title screen in his DeviantArt gallery.
  • Never Live It Down: invoked He acknowledges one of his such moments during his review of The Modifyers with an on-screen caption stating "Quick tip: if you make videos on the internet, don't make mistakes or people will keep telling you about them long after you've addressed them" (referring to how he mixed up Sanjay and Craig's names a couple of times in his "Fart Baby" review).
  • Never Say "Die": Discussed in his review of the Garbage Pail Kids Cartoon, where he points out an instance of the word "Death" in the background. He then wonders how the creators managed to sneak it past the censors, while pointing out that even far more contemporary shows such as The Powerpuff Girls were unable to use the word "death".
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: In his "Screams of Silence" videos, he goes into great details about how the charities and the media can lead to making an issue they are trying to fight even worse by using misconceptions, stereotypes, exaggerating statistics and their value, or (in the case of "Screams of Silence") tackling the issue in an incredibly tactlessly and puerile fashion.
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: In his collab re-review of Putting Your Hoof Down, he notes that this is one of the perks of being asexual.
    Joshscorcher: (On Rarity's trick of flirting with a pony to extort him.) It's obviously so sneaky, and underhanded would probably work on me, not gonna lie.
    Mr. Enter: And that's why being asexual is awesome!
  • Not Hyperbole: In his review of the Mr. Pickles episode "Tommy's Big Job", after he says "And nobody cares." after recounting the story of an elderly person who experienced Mr. Pickles... "shenanigans" first hand, Mr. Enter is quick to point out that literally no-one in the episode cares about this.
  • "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer:
    • In his "Mrs. Gorf" review when describing Wendy Nogard, a teacher who read people's minds with her third ear.
    • In his Dorbees: Making Decisions review, he gives this:
      Mr. Enter: Speaking of which, the guy on the sofa changes the channel to a weird German Access Television show about a superhero named Mr. Poe and his sidekick Yogul, where they try to fight an evil French cow. The funny part is that you think I'm kidding. (later) No, I didn't edit this in, and no, my friends and I didn't try to make a little something to make fun of "Dorbees." This is in the movie as I found it! The movie literally stops to show us this full short about Mr. Poe and Yogul.
    • In the Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island review, he constantly reminds viewers that the seemingly random and unconnected bits of footage all came from the same episode, just to drive home how much of a Random Events Plot it is.
    • He begins his Admirable Animation review of "TTG vs PPG" by clarifying that no, you are not dreaming or tripping, it's not April Fools', and you did not misread the title.
    • In his Seth Mac Farlanes Cavalcade Of Cartoon Comedy review, when he mentions a contest where the winner bought Seth MacFarlane dinner at Burger King, he quickly clarifies that he did not misspeak.
      Mr. Enter: Do you think I would've won the contest where the winner got to buy Seth MacFarlane dinner at Burger King? I did not say that wrong. The winner of the contest got to buy Seth MacFarlane dinner at Burger King."
  • Not Me This Time: His main complaint about SpongeBob's "Torture Porn" episodes (episodes that consist of one character constantly suffering throughout) is that the character being subjected to all the misery winds up being completely innocent in that particular episode (even when in most other episodes they would do something to warrant it), and that he feels that in order for such episodes to work, the character being tormented has to deserve it within the actual episode. He doesn't feel that characters' wrongdoings in other episodes should be relied upon to make torture porn episodes work.
  • Older Than They Think:invoked Parodied; he compares Tumblresque Political Correctness attitudes to Moral Guardians in the '80s during his The Little Clowns of Happytown review, "explaining" The Dark Age of Animation. He also points out that this attitude is in large part due to corporations protecting profits.
  • Once Done, Never Forgotten: Mr. Enter seems to be under the mentality of "once a bully, always a bully", as he dislikes Ronnie Anne despite the fact that she has had more positive moments after her earlier roughness.
  • The One Thing I Don't Hate About You:
    • In his "SpongeBob, You're Fired!" review, he notes that the one saving grace the episode has is that the worst Squidward goes through is being put in a dress.
      • He had also described SpongeBob's long-lost catchphrase "I'm ready!" as "a voice from the heavens", and was extremely relieved and quite happy to see that SpongeBob was actually being kind and attentive to Gary for once.
    • In his "Little Yellow Book" review, the only thing he found to be good was that there was no Padding.
    • He notes during the #1 Squidward Torture Porn "Breath of Fresh Squidward" that his most hated episodes usually do one thing right. The episode in particular initially pleased him with Squidward, acting like SpongeBob after getting shocked by his electric fence, showing SpongeBob how annoying his own behavior is, but ultimately failed by portraying Squidward as the antagonist and forcing sympathy towards SpongeBob.
    • He also takes time out in his review of "Are You Happy Now" to praise the fact that everyone in the episode treats Squidward's depression as serious business rather than a big joke (the two joking suicide references notwithstanding) including SpongeBob's genuine concern for Squidward. He still rips the episode to shreds for blatant plot holes that render the episode nonsensical in the wider continuity (i.e., the premise that Squidward does not have a "happiest memory" is blatantly false looking over the show's run).
    • In his review of The Emoji Movie, after tearing apart pretty much everything else about the movie, he notes that the one good thing he can say about the film is that it has a really good soundtrack.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: A meta version, in that yes, this IS Serious Business for him as a critic.
  • Out-of-Genre Experience: The "D.W.'s Very Bad Mood" review is done in an I Hate Everything-esque style, which makes it one of his more memorable reviews.
  • Overly-Long Gag: His "review" of Dave is actually just a long chain of "not to be confused with" jokes.
  • Oxymoronic Being: Almost, Mr. Enter describes Are You Happy Now? as the closest an Animated Atrocity has come to being good. Even when he discusses the problems that put it in Atrocity territory, he doesn't sound especially angry. He later does the same with the movie Doggy Poo, acknowledging that it was really well put together, and that he'd have been able to ignore the Audience-Alienating Premise and actually enjoy the movie if it weren't so incredibly melodramatic. invoked
  • Pandering to the Base:
    • invokedHe believes that "Rainbow Falls" did this to try to distract people from the episode's problems, specifically by using the story to bring back popular fan-favorite pony Derpy, whom fans assumed had been banned from the show due to fallout from her speaking appearance in "The Last Roundup".
    • invokedHe considers Mr. Pickles, The Nutshack, Teen Titans Go!, Breadwinners and Sanjay and Craig examples of this.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Downplayed with his first avatar, since his default expression is relatively neutral, but only one of his avatars depicts him smiling, and was only been used twice: in his "Daring Don't" review (When he successfully counters a common criticism of the episode), and his "Time Twister" review (When he takes his first step in conquering his anger issues). Averted with his later avatars (the trenchcoat one and the one that's the page image), as their "smiling" expressions are used fairly frequently.
  • Pet-Peeve Trope:
  • Political Overcorrectness: The "Advertiser-Friendly Robot" from the Little Clowns of Happytown review, who gives us exchanges like this:
    Mr. Enter: Ok. Let's try Mulan II.
    Mr. Enter: How about Barnyard? That's been on the plate for quite a while and—
    (cut to black)
    Mr. Enter: I'm living in South Park, I swear.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: At the end of his review for "Staring at the Future", we get a particularly hilarious example:
    • Also present in his "Arthur's Big Hit" review:
      D.W.: Well, I didn't know [the plane was a model]. I'm just a child! Give me a break!
      Mr. Enter: NOT. AN. EXCUSE.
  • A Rare Sentence: About half of what he has to say about Tentacolino, prompting him to say not to question this movie's "logic" pretty quickly. See Description Cut above.
    • Also, he makes this realization in his "Magical Mystery Cure" review.
      This show made me proud of a purple unicorn pony becoming a princess. Am I being trolled? M.A. Larson and Daniel Ingram are trolling me!
    • In the review of the We Bare Bears episode "Burrito", he says the episode took the same plot as "To Love a Patty" and made it very heartfelt, "which is odd to say.... How the hell do you do that??"
  • Rated M for Moneyinvoked: Mr. Enter really dislikes this trope, for similar reasons as Animated Shock Comedy, since it boils down to the belief that to have "for mature audiences" be a selling point, it needs to be full of shock value but often at the expense of actual maturity.
  • Record Needle Scratch: Used after the points counter pops up at the beginning of his "Twilight's Kingdom" review, right after he calls the episode "flawless".
    • Also used in his "Madballs: Gross Jokes" review after the mention of hemorrhoids.
  • Relax-o-Vision: In the "Hearts and Hooves Day" review, Mr. Enter gets into an argument with his snarktitles (who he's dubbed The Snark Knight) and as a result we get to watch a short AMV Hell-like MLP Fan Vid while trying to "deal" the snarktitles.
  • The Resolution Will Not Be Identified: His main problem with "Things Change", the final episode of Teen Titans, is that it does not resolve any of the questions introduced in the episode, let alone the rest of the show, and that it feels like the first part of a two-part episode, with the second part never being made.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Almost every sentence in his review of "Spit Collector" is a rhyme. The whole thing is reminiscent of There's a Man in the Woods.
  • Rock Bottom: Done a LOT in the Madballs: Gross Jokes review
    Mr. Enter: Look, I know I should never say this, but I legitimately, can't see how this could get any fucking worse.
    Narrator: Presenting! By Special request,
    Mr. Enter: Oh Great, now it's taunting me.
    Narrator: Mr. Hornhead's BIG MUSICAL NUMBER!
    Mr. Enter: A... a-are you fucking shitting me?
    • Whichever Animated Atrocity he finds the worst changes a lot. As far as Sponge Bob Squarepants alone goes, it started with "One Coarse Meal", then "SpongeBob, You're Fired", then "Pet Sitter Pat", with "Demolition Doofus" giving it a run for its money, then back to "One Coarse Meal" after his re-review of the episode. As of his Top 10 Worst SpongeBob episodes list, it is back to "Pet Sitter Pat", with "One Coarse Meal" a very close second. The all-time worst overall started with "Seahorse Seashell Party", which got beaten by "One Night In Gottlieb", "Love Loaf", "Fresh Heir", "Poop Doggy Dog", then "Ren Seeks Help", and now "Drawn Together: The Movie", at which point he stopped the sequence from proceeding further by saying that he would never review or even watch anything worse than that.
  • Rooting for the Empireinvoked: In "Waffles" he begins supporting Brother Blood on torturing Beast Boy and Cyborg due to how unlikable they've become.
    Mr. Enter: Please torture them until they stop this nonsense! (cue Beast Boy and Cyborg being tortured) Wow, I'm actually happy that the characters we're supposed to be rooting for are being tortured maliciously. YOU. FAIL!
  • Running Gag:
    • In his review of A Charming Birthday, the first MLP G3 episode, he constantly gets Razaroo's name wrong.
    • Also in his G3 reviews, his "pink supremacist" Alternate Character Interpretation for Pinkie Pie.
    • In the Re-Animated review, every single time Craig is about to do something selfish and idiotic to Jimmy, Enter prefaces it with "Also, Craig does a thing."
  • Russian Reversal: On The Emoji Movie: "The Emoji Movie isn't everything wrong with cinema as many people claim, but pretty much everything wrong with cinema is in The Emoji Movie."
  • Seasonal Rotinvoked: In-Universe example, as to this day he's been wondering why so many people are believing that Friendship Is Magic is suffering from this since its third or even second season.
    • Specifically, he feels the show itself still has many more good episodes than bad ones,note  and that's it's pretty normal for great shows to have their fair share of "weak" or "bad" episodes (he's done Animated Atrocities for episodes he really disliked of some of his favorite shows, like Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends or The Powerpuff Girls). Additionally, whenever Mr. Enter expresses having a dislike for a FIM episode, that dislike is reserved for the episode itself, not the entire show or the season which the episode comes from, and even the infamously short (and oft-panned) third season of FIM still had more episodes that he liked than disliked. In fact, six Season 3 episodes (half the season, if you count "The Crystal Empire" as a single episode) made his best episodes listnote , while only onenote  made his worst episodes list.
      • To further his viewpoint on this, he keeps running tallies of the scores he gives each episode. He's divided each season into 13-episode stretches (the short third season by itself, and the first and second halves of all the other seasons). The first half of season 1 scored the worst with 36/65 and the second half of season 2 scored the second-worst with 44/65. Meanwhile, the second half of season one, the first half of season two, and season 3 all scored 46/65. season 4 was the highest-scoring season yet, with the first half scoring 51/65, and the second half scoring an even higher 52/65. So from his view, not only is FIM not getting worse, it's actually getting better.
    • He feels that both SpongeBob SquarePants and Family Guy play this horribly straight, writing an essay examining exactly why the former fell as hard as it did. The latter he refused to do any more reviews on until "Fresh Heir", when he decided to make reviews of the series more regularly.
    • This is also played straight with The Fairly OddParents!. At the end of his review of "The Big Fairy Share Scare", he even openly declared the show to be dead.
  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: Discusses this In-Universe in his review of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. He notes that it has been very influential on modern cartoons and attributes the fact that he's seen everything it's done to be the reason why he can't really gravitate to it (even if he does find it a solid cartoon from an objective standpoint).
  • Self-Deprecation:
    • Twice during the follow-up to "Homer Badman", when he weighs the consequences of being raped to being accused of rape. If the former situation led to a child, he would have to prove that he's a more responsible parent than the mother who raped him "while at the same time explaining that my job is yelling at SpongeBob for a living." If he was brought to court over the latter situation, he laments that his "unshaven hobo" look would work against him.
    • In his Shark Tale review, he says, "Stating what's going on on-screen is not a joke. If that was the case, then my videos would be hilarious, wouldn't they?"
    • In his Quest for Camelot review, when he mentions the film's bad character designs, he briefly switches to his old shadowed avatar. Later in the same video, he says that Ruber's Villain Song "is so fucking bad, you'd think that I wrote it."
    • His 2021 episode "Top 10 WORST Episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants" has Mr. Enter watch his own "Top 10 Worst Squidward Torture Porns" video and say "This man is an idiot and you shouldn't listen to a damn thing that he says."
    • While his "Top 10 WORST Mr. Enter Videos" countdown has him tearing into his worst works, the number three segment, dedicated to his original Rocket Monkeys video stands out, since it features Enter directly talking to himself:
    Past!Mr. Enter: Let me explain something I wanna make very clear: I do not like getting requests. I do not take requests.
    Present!Mr. Enter: It's rule number one. Rule number one. Do Not. Insult. The Audience. No matter what you think, no matter what your shtick, gimmick or act is, you never EVER insult. Ninety-five episodes in; this is what you decide to do? And, er... let me ask... because I gotta know... why are you insulting the audience, Mr. Enter?
    Past!Mr. Enter: The more annoyed I am because people keep bugging me to do it, the less likely I am to do it.
    Present!Mr. Enter: Ah, yes, because a lot of people were... requesting things. Oh, the humanity! So many people were asking you to talk about something! God, you can be a pretentious fuckwad. I mean, this might have been... not excusable but understandable if it happened in 2013 when you didn't have a clue what you were doing and were socially stupid. But this was 2015; three years into the business, three years dealing with people, learning how to interface with an audience, and yes, taking requests. Geez, Mr. Enter, you're so annoyed that people want you to review a thing, and you really, really don't wanna review that thing. It's such a shame that you were contract bound on penalty-of-death if you didn't want to talk about Rocket Monkeys. Oh wait, no! You had the freedom all along to just fucking say "no." Civilly. If the requests were getting too much to handle, why not make a separate video? No, you made this ten minute video, of which about ten seconds can constitute an actual review. To go on to what amounts to this middle-finger of a video. Keep insulting people like that and nobody's going to ask you to talk about anything ever again, buddy. Nobody's going to want you to. You're an ungrateful piece of shit, you know that? I don't want to hear about "burnout" or whatever, 'cos there's no excuse for this. Like, let's really think about this dude. You're not shutting down people because they're being hateful. That they're insulting you or someone else. These people, they're not even really spamming. These people, all want to hear your opinion on this show, because it means something to them, or because they think that you're funny. That's actually really hard to convince someone, you know? Like, the fucking gal! The audacity! You wanna know the kinda audience you got, buddy? This is the like-to-dislike ratio on this video. That's like an 80% like-to-dislike ratio, on a video where the sole purpose is insulting your audience, blatantly. That kind of respect from an audience is rare and fleeting. And this audience tolerates every single stupid thing you say. 350,000 views on a video that doesn't even serve its stated purpose, with a broken microphone, with a free editing software, on a video that probably took less than a day to make. Do you know how many people on this platform would kill to be in your position? Have a little maturity. You're a dumb little shit who doesn't know how good he actually has it. I can already tell, you're gonna miss all of this someday. And then you're gonna regret every moment that you spent being ungrateful, hate every moment that you just shat something out, instead of doing your best, and despise how you treated those who thought your work was something special. Grow the fuck up, and do it quick.
  • Sensory Abuse: His main issue with The Problem Solverz was its absurdly bright coloring. He claims that he had to watch the episodes in intervals because his eyes were watering, and he went shortsighted shortly after the review.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Single-Minded Twins: Brought up when he refers to Slip and Slide in his review of Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island: "...who, like pretty much every twin in any form of media, is dressed exactly the same way, speaks the exact same way, and does exactly the same thing. Because no one in the media seems to know that there's a difference between twins and clones."
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Zig-Zagged. How frequently he swears usually has to do with how bad the episode he's reviewing is and how angry it makes him.
  • Slow-Paced Beginning: In his First Impressions video, he notes that this can significantly damage a work. For example, he notes that while Bojack Horseman ended up being one of his favorite shows of all time, the bad first three episodes turned him off from the rest of the series when he first watched it and had to be badgered to watch further, meaning he almost lost out on a series he greatly enjoyed because of a bad first impression.
  • So Bad, It's Good:invoked
    • "Dusk's Dawn", a poorly animated, poorly written fanmade MLP episode is referred to as "the funniest thing [he's] seen in quite some time."
    • He also thinks The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang show is hilariously awful.
  • So Okay, It's Averageinvoked: His reaction to "Winter Wrap-Up", "A Friend In Deed", and almost everything written by Josh Haber.
    • This is also his reaction to Wayside when not comparing to the books it was based on.
    • This is one of his stated reasons for not reviewing any Uncle Grandpa episodes, stating that every episode he watches, whether it was just to get a feel of the show itself, find something that offended him for an Atrocity, or even to find something worth an Admirable Animation, his reaction every time was, "Okay, that happened." He also adds it also because he can't quite fathom the show's own logic.
  • So Proud of You: To him, the MLP episode "Magical Mystery Cure" is the first show to use this as an Audience Reaction.
  • Social Media Is Bad: He delves into the many injustices present in various social media platforms with his "Technocracy" documentary series.
  • The Sociopathinvoked: In general, he refers to characters who are this as evil.
    • Declares that SpongeBob is one during his Top 11 Worst Episodes I've Reviewed (Year 1) video while he is talking about "A Pal for Gary".
    • He concludes in his "Top Ten Worst Patrick's a Prick Episodes" that Patrick is one, saying that he only pretends to be SpongeBob's friend and that he was actually employing Obfuscating Stupidity throughout the entire series to get away with tormenting him and other people.
    • Declares that Ren Hoek is one in "Ren Seeks Help". The episode tries to maintain that Ren is crazy, but Mr. Enter insists that there is a difference between crazy and evil, and Ren is most definitely the latter.
    • He believes that Angela Anaconda is one in "The Substitute" due to her numerous fantasies of her enemies being mutilated.
    • He also declares that Brian Griffin is one in "Herpe, the Love Sore" since he gave Stewie Griffin herpes and is showing no remorse for doing so.
  • Somethingitis: He has noted several times that this trope is one of his pet peeves, and he gets upset whenever some cartoon character uses it in a way that does not fit its real-life purpose.
  • Something Something Leonard Bernstein: He tries and mostly fails to puzzle out the lyrics to The Nutshack's Theme Tune Rap in "Top 20 Worst Cartoon Themes."
  • Soundtrack Dissonance: He demonstrates how horribly mean spirited Pinkie Pie was in "Filli Vanilli" by playing "Smile Song" over the scene in which she tells Fluttershy that she might get embarrassed in front of a huge, judgmental crowd and makes her cry.
  • Spiritual Successor: He considers Steven Universe to be a better successor to Teen Titans than its actual successor, Teen Titans Go!.
  • Spinoff Babies: In his Total DramaRama review, he says that all baby spin-offs are watered-down garbage except for Tiny Toon Adventuresnote  and A Pup Named Scooby-Doonote .
  • Start of Darkness: More like start of angriness, but "Ren Seeks Help" was this for Mr. Enter.
  • Stock Scream: Does a Howie Long twice in the "Face Freeze" review – First upon realizing that it has the same writers as "One Coarse Meal", and second when he sees Sandy's realistic hands.
  • Stopped Caring: After all the copyright trouble he's had, Enter has begun to cease the practice of posting disclaimers at the end of his videos (which would usually be something along the lines of "The footage here was used for review purposes protected by fair use and is not meant to be a substitute(s) for the animation(s) in question").
    • It started in his Rick and Morty review where his disclaimer was: "This video was made for review purposes. If this statement is relevant to you, I know for certain you don't give a shit."
    • He then continued this trend by jokingly going off on outlandish tangents about the copyright holders in the credits of some of his later videos (i.e. "The Shell" (Gumball), "The Splinter" (re-review) and "Food Fight!" (The Fairly OddParents)). In the first one, he did state at the end "I could say that this is for review purposes, but that would be silly".
  • Strawman Has a Pointinvoked: In his Shark Tale review, he notes the movie treats Oscar as being in the wrong for laughing at Angie's suggestion that he reveal the truth, when doing so would realistically result in countless lawsuits and his reputation being permanently tarnished. Oscar could not have reasonably known that he would be Easily Forgiven by everyone for his deception, so by this point maintaining the lie would be his only real option.
  • Stunned Silence: Reacts this way when the infamous "I Am Autism" ad's narrator states that it "works faster than pediatric diabetes, AIDS, and cancer combined." He then regains composure when he realizes they're talking to paranoid would-be parents.
    ...Can I see your sources, please? Like, what the actual fuck? Autism works faster than pediatric diabetes, AIDS, and cancer combined to do what? Oh, I'm not thinking about this from the right viewpoint. They're talking to parents who are paranoid that they aren't going to give birth to the most perfect children in the world. If your child has diabetes, AIDS, or cancer it'll ruin your life completely. But if they have autism, it's going to ruin your life even faster.note  I... don't even know what to say. This is just awful. On every level.
  • Suckiness Is Painful: He notes that he'll have to be more careful about when he uses the phrase "painful to watch", as The Problem Solverz was literally painful to watch with its bright coloring.
  • Suddenly Shouting: Sometimes in his recent reviews.
  • Suspiciously Similar Songinvoked: Finds one to Super Mario RPG in his Princess Promenade review.
  • Take Our Word for It: After bringing up Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon" (specifically the episode "Stimpy's Pregnant") in his "Fart Baby" review, he mentions that he can't show any footage from it... and not because of copyright concerns.
    Mr. Enter: Which I can't show you. Not for copyright reasons, but for... other YouTube standards. (shows the "Viewer discretion is advised" card) Yeah, sometimes [that card] doesn't cut it.
  • Take That!:
  • Take That, Critics!: He really dislikes it when cartoons abuse this, as can be seen in his reviews of various Teen Titans Go! episodes, the Garbage Pail Kids cartoon, and the MLP episode Fame and Misfortune.
  • Take That, Scrappy!invoked:
    • In his older "Pet Sitter Pat" Reviewnote :
      Patrick:' '(on the phone with Spongebob) OK Spongebob! I get it! I get it! *throws the corded phone out the window*
      Mr. Enter: Please, hit him with something!
      (the phone reaches the end of its cord, then snaps back inside and hits Patrick in the back of the head)''
      Mr. Enter: Thank you.
    • In his review of Lupe's Revenge
      Cop:(in Spanish, to Peggy) I hope you rot in jail and the rats eat your eyes.
      Mr. Enter: Hey, get this guy a beer!
    • In his Herpe, the Love Sore review
      Mr. Enter: We get a "Beating up Meg" joke, and then punching Stewie for reusing a gag that's long since worn its welcome. Uh, can I get more of the latter, please?
    • At the end of his "Top 10 Worst Squidward Torture Porns" list, he's reveling in SpongeBob's misery in "A Breath of Fresh Squidward", due to it coming primarily from New!Squidward treating him like he treated Squidward in every other episode on the list.
      Mr. Enter:' '(As SpongeBob is crying over losing Employee of the Month to New Squidward)'' Hey, SpongeBob, can I please get a side fries with those tears? On second thought, they're delicious enough by themselves.
  • Tempting Fate:
    • While reviewing "Pinkie Apple Pie", he wondered if he was being too nice, having failed only one episode of MLP Season 4 up to that point. The very next episode to air would be "Rainbow Falls", which he considers the second-worst episode of the show, the worst-written episode of MLP, and an Animated Atrocity.
    • While reviewing the SpongeBob episode "Demolition Doofus" and calls the sponge out for crippling Mrs. Puff by puncturing her inflation sac.
      Mr. Enter: I don't think SpongeBob could possibly do anything worse.
      SpongeBob:Hmm, from now on, I guess we'll have to call you "Mrs. Pop."
      Mr. Enter: I stand corrected!
    • At the end of "One Coarse Meal", he states that the one thing he can be grateful for is that the episode's backlash should discourage further attempts to portray Suicide as Comedy.
      Squidward: [during "Are You Happy Now"] Can't seem to get happy... [throws up a rope like a noose] Maybe this will help...
      Mr. Enter: Ugh... fuck me!
    • At the end of his Mega Babies review, after managing to get through the whole episode he feels he can take on any terrible episode or show and asks for something extremely horrible to be given to him to tackle next. He's then given "Ren Seeks Help", much to his horror.
      • During the review, he expresses sarcastic surprise that a dog's defecation was not shown in a show so dedicated to gross-out "humor". Then, one of the babies poops enough that his diaper pushes him through the ceiling.
        Mr. Enter: I WAS JOKING!
    • Also at the end of his "Arnold Betrays Iggy" review, he believes the next review will be much lighter. Cue the intro to Puppy in My Pocket, its respective episode getting a 56 on its note page.
    • In his journal of Top 11 Worst Episode's he's reviewed that year, he said at the end "If 'Ren Seeks Help' is not the worst piece of animation in existence, I don't want to find out what is." Not long after, people began asking him to review Where the Dead Go to Die, which was so bad he couldn't give it a standard review because calling it an Animated Atrocity would be too good for it.
    • His review of Sandcastles in the Sand ends with him wondering what other episodes Casey Alexander, Zeus Cervas, and Dani Michaeli worked on together. The review ends with the title card of Atlantis SquarePantis and Mr. Enter saying "OH FOR THE LOVE OF-", cut off by the credits music.
    • The review of "Staring at the Future" ends with him saying there was no way the show could be any more disrespectful to the original, even "if they dubbed over the original animation with some half-assed attempt at humor."
      Robin (re-dubbed): Gross! You have gunk all over your face! [...] You probably wanna kiss me. Don't blame you. I'm awesome. (he and Starfire make out)
      Mr. Enter: I stand corrected! Ladies and gentlemen, the worst abridged series in the universe.
    • In his review of "Is This Cute?"
      Mr. Enter: Is there anything in this episode that isn't cliched as all hell?! (Text on the screen reads "Yes. Yes there is.") Oh God, why do I feel like I'm gonna regret that question?
      (Later, after Balrog the Destroyer is revealed to be a flying pink pony with a rainbow mane who proceeds to suck Sheen up into his nose via his nose hairs)
      Mr. Enter: Give them that: It's not cliche anymore.
  • That Came Out Wrong: He compares Gravity Falls with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic because episodes from both shows "tend to do the same plots... Er, they tend to do the same stories."
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Characterinvoked:
    • According to a Tumblr post, this is his opinion on Mr. Krabs, as the series only focuses on his greed despite him having various other aspects to his character.
    • In his Samurai Jack Season 5 review, he considers the Daughters of Aku to have been killed off far, far too early. This causes plot confusion regarding Jack's ability (both physical and mental) to kill, severely neuters tension throughout the rest of the season, and harms Ashi's character arc.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plotinvoked:
    • In his "SpongeBob, You're Fired" review, he points out that the scene where SpongeBob makes great snail food from scratch does nothing for the plot, when it could led to SpongeBob being a success with homemade snail food and Mr. Krabs having to re-earn SpongeBob's loyalty.
    • Inverted in his review of "Equestria Games", where he felt that the episode could have been much worse by giving fans what they were expecting (mostly thanks to "Rainbow Falls"), and still thinks that it's good for how it turned out.
    • During his Shorty McShorts' Shorts review, he finds this to be the problem with the shorts Flip-Flopped and Too Many Robots, pointing out that, with some retooling, the premises of both could have worked very well.
    • In "Top 10 Worst Cartoons of the 1980's", he thinks the premise of Moondreamers, a team of people giving kids good dreams, could have been a good idea for a cartoon series today, but was ruined because it tried to rip off the Care Bears and cartoons in The '80s weren't allowed to be introspective and focus on kids' insecurities.
    • In his review of Little Ellen, Ellen DeGeneres' mediocre kid cartoon, one of his criticisms is that Ellen grew up during the tumult of the 1960s, and a cartoon based on her actual childhood and the events she witnessed would be a genuinely interesting idea.
  • Title Drop: In his "Stuck in the Wringer" review.
    Mr. Enter: SpongeBob steps on a rubber duck, which startles him to step on another bar of soap, which gets him "Stuck in the Wringer".
    • Discussed in his "Brian's a Bad Father" review.
      Dylan: God, you’re a terrible father.
      Mr. Enter: Hey, dude, the line was, "Brian, you're a bad father." It's the fucking title of the episode!
  • Too Bleak, Stopped Caring: invoked His attitude toward most adult cartoons for prioritizing shock value over storytelling.
    • Also towards CatDog for making Cat a Butt-Monkey and Dog an Idiot Houdini and for not even being the least bit escapist.
    • This is how he feels about Out of Jimmy's Head for being nothing short of "mean and nasty". For starters, having Jimmy have creepy feelings for Robin, and Jimmy's school counselor dad being an even bigger Manchild who doesn't care about his son in the slightest.
    • Discussed in "Negating Nihilism".
  • Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth:
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: His main complaint with "Power Ponies" is that in order to make Spike seem useful, the Mane Six are made to be completely incompetent.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass:
    • PATRICK STAR. He calls this character's stupidity, once charming and funny, now one of the most insufferable things he has ever seen. He even states Patrick is a bigger monster than Puffy Fluffy ever was.
    • One of his biggest complaints about Teen Titans Go! is how Cyborg and Beast Boy were turned from multi-dimensional characters that were fun-loving but knew when to get serious into complete assholes.
  • Tranquil Fury: When Mr. Enter starts talking quietly, that's when you know that shit's going down.
  • Unfortunate Implications: In-universe, this is one of the categories that his Animated Atrocities are judged on.
  • Unintentionally Sympatheticinvoked: Comes up every so often, though not as often as the other trope.
    • During the Little Clowns of Happytown review, he points out that the overprotective mother who is supposed to be in the wrong comes off as a rational if a bit overprotective parent. After all, your disabled child going through the woods alone is not an unfounded concern.
    • His worst episodes of Ed, Edd n Eddy share the sentiment that, despite the Eds being scammers and trouble makers, the cartoon would sometimes verge into Sadist Show and treat them harshly, even when they don't deserve it.
  • Unintentionally Unsympatheticinvoked:
    • Pretty much describes the trope verbatim when talking about Angela from the Family Guy episode "Peter-Assment". Angela is incredibly lonely having not been with a man in over 10 years, to the point where she's Driven to Suicide (although Peter saves her). However, he points out Angela is also an attempted rapist who spent the entirety of the episode sexually harassing Peter, so despite her backstory, she's not at all sympathetic. He says had the genders been reversed and it was a male boss who was incredibly lonely and attempted to rape his female employee, this wouldn't even need to be spelled out and the man would be the obvious villain.
      • Peter from the same episode doesn't escape this either, as although he's being sexually harassed by his boss and then ridiculed by his wife and friends for not enjoying the woman's advances, that in the first half of the episode Peter was antagonistic and blatantly racist, ruining any chance of him being sympathetic during the second act.
    • Also talks about the weird situation of Allen Gregory, wherein the "protagonist" has a forlorn look and sad music to accompany the fact no one believes him about having a sex tape of himself (a 7-year-old) and his 90-year-old principal. He's baffled how the show could have possibly thought the audience would sympathize with Allen over this.
    • Shows up again in his review of "Demolition Doofus" where he points out that Mrs. Puff tried to murder SpongeBob for crippling her for life. He notes how this doesn't make SpongeBob regain any sympathy points but instead makes the victim (Mrs. Puff) unsympathetic and now he has no idea who he's actually rooting for.
  • Unstoppable Rage:
    • Goes into bouts of these in his "A Pal For Gary", Chicken Little and "Seahorse Seashell Party" reviews, and is about to unleash one towards the end of his Spit Collector review upon Wayne Cramp. He also goes into one again at the ending of the "A Pal For Gary" review in response to "One Coarse Meal".
    • In his Time Twister review, he's in this state throughout the review until the Crazy Old Man gives him a verbal Cooldown Hug, and the Crazy Old Man even calls him out on him getting angrier and angrier as a result of prematurely reviewing "Ren Seeks Help". Similarly, he's in this state throughout in his Newborn Cuties review.
    • At the beginning of his review of "Screams of Silence", he has actually gone as far as making a disclaimer stating he is going to go into this through the course of the review.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: If the review of The Lion King (2019) is to be believed, Mr. Enter was a lot more optimistic and energetic as a kid, and it shows when his 8-year-old self is contrasted with his jaded 28-year-old self and his anxious 18-year-old self.
  • Valentine's Day Vitriol: Unsurprisingly, Mr. Enter, a self-proclaimed aromantic asexual, finds Valentine's Day his least favorite holiday.
  • Very Special Episode: A few of Mr. Enter's reviews on animations that bring up important issues are means for him to provide his insight on the issue in question as he critiques the animation in relation to the issue. With Atrocities, he educates on how badly the animation fails in properly dealing with the issue, and for Admirables, he expands on the insight the animation presents:
  • Video Game Movies Suck:invoked He considers the Elf Bowling movie to be one of the worst things he's ever seen.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: Has one in his "Little Yellow Book" review when it's implied that Patrick literally eats shit.
  • Was Too Hard on Him: He regrets being unnecessarily hostile to Casey Alexander in his original "Pet Sitter Pat" review, among other writers he's bashed in the past.
  • Waxing Lyrical: In his re-review of "Pet Sitter Pat", after noting how he got enraged over the writers over it, he says " could call it a dash of overreaction," referencing "One Little Slip" by Barenaked Ladies.
  • Wham Episode:
    • His notebook entry on "Ren Seeks Help." The abnormally high atrocity point countnote  - as well as being the first entry to earn a 10 in Cringe-Inducing Visuals and Disturbing Content - made many of his fans do a Spit Take.
    • That eventually got topped with his notebook of The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie. It gained a grand total of 80 Atrocity Points — worse than "Ren Seeks Help"!
  • Wham Line: In his review of "Ren Seeks Help", the intro to the review:
    Disclaimer Voice: (reading off of the disclaimer text) Some viewers may find this disturbing-
    Mr. Enter: Stop. Right... (light chuckle) "some" viewers... I want you all to listen to me very carefully. First of all, if you don't know what a "placenta" is, you're too young to watch the review of this episode. As for the episode itself, I don't think that I'm old enough to watch the actual episode. But, here we are.
    • At the end of Treasure Map, he reveals that he's been so slow to make new reviews because he's suffering from cysts.
  • Wham Shot: About five minutes into his "Very important conversation" livestream, he pulls up an email from YouTube which states that his channel, which is his major source of income, got demonetized.
  • What Could Have Been: The crux of the "Admirable Animation" episode "3 Stories of What Could Have Been", the conclusion to Nickelodeon Month, where he discusses three instances:
    • "Pigeon Man": Originally, before Nickelodeon intervened, the episode was supposed to end with Pigeon Man jumping off the roof.note 
    • The Modifyers: A failed pilot that Nickelodeon rejected.
    • And "I Remember You": After he mentions how Adventure Time's pilot was rejected by Nickelodeon and after doing a review of the episode in question, Mr. Enter hazards a guess and guesses that had Adventure Time been picked up by Nickelodeon, this episode wouldn't have been made.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?invoked: This is a problem he has with new SpongeBob episodes like "A Pal for Gary".
    • This is his reaction to Professor Z burning Torque to death (albeit offscreen) in Cars 2 (a movie that's rated G).
      • It's also his reaction for when it is revealed that Leland Turbo has been cubed by Professor Z's henchmen.
    • He rips on "Demolition Doofus for being this, comparing it to a Robot Chicken sketch and questioning the content the show has put out in recent years.
      Mr. Enter: It's like flanderizing the aspects of the show a million times and escalating the darker stuff. But, this isn't a self-parody. From what I can tell, this was done in earnest. Why am I taking this so seriously? I mean, it's just a kids' show. Maybe, for one, I'm taking this seriously because it's a fucking kids' show! I wouldn't want them to watch something like this or "The Splinter" or "A Pal for Gary" or "One Coarse Meal" or any of the other sick, twisted plots that come out of this show! Would you?!
  • What Does She See in Him?:
    • One of his major complaints with "Screams of Silence" is that both Jeff and Brenda are defined too much by their positions as the angry abuser and the submissive victim, respectively, to the point that Jeff always seems to have been unpleasant, and puts into question why Brenda ever hooked up with him in the first place.
    • In his review of Shark Tale, he on multiple occasions complains that Oscar constantly acts like a jerk and he honestly can't think of a single reason why Angie would be attracted to him.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He complains in his Cars 2 review that the racing subplot which was prominent throughout the film was dropped in the end with no resolution.
  • What the Hell Are You?: To the writers of "One Coarse Meal" at the end of the review.
  • "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue: The end of his "Truth Or Square" review has a parody of this.
  • Who Writes This Crap?!: In the "Everyone Knows It's Bendy" review, he notes that the answer has never been more shocking. He reacts with an "everyone makes mistakes" mentality.
  • With Friends Like These...: In his My Gym Partner's A Monkey review, he calls out Cartoon Network shows of the mid 2000's for having a warped view of friendship with their leads consisting of a doormat Butt-Monkey being pushed around by a jerk with little to nothing in return, with him specifically calling out Andy and Rodney, Mac and Bloo and Jake and Adam from the review as well.
  • Writing Around Trademarks: Animated Atrocities was originally called Infamous Animation before Mr. Enter found out that someone was using the name. He also changed the name because some of the stuff he reviewed was fairly obscure and "infamous" means that the work is well known for being bad.
  • You Monster!: Patrick's actions in "Pet Sitter Pat" led Mr. Enter to call him a literal monster, and one line in "The Card" (by Fridge Horror) affected his interpretation of Patrick so much that he thinks that Patrick is a sociopath.
