YMMV / How It Should Have Ended

Go To

  • Anti-Climax Boss: After being built up as a major villain and nemesis to the Justice League, Martha is swiftly taken out by Superman via Neck Snap.
  • Ass Pull:
    • The Power Rangers and Voltron showing up out of nowhere to back up Beckett and Mako in How Pacific Rim Should Have Ended.
    • Batman surviving the Earth becoming crushed in How The Avengers: Age of Ultron Should Have Ended, and shrinking in How Ant-Man Should Have Ended, with literally no explanation other than, "Because I'm Batman!" Of course, Superman already has this reaction, and it's completely on purpose.
    • Advertisement:
    • Likewise surviving Thanos snap, just by the sheer awesomeness of being Batman.
  • Author's Saving Throw: For those who disliked the "Because I'm Batman" catchphrase is finally acknowledged by the other characters in-universe, of how obnoxiously annoying it became. One good example is in the Wonder Woman (2017) episode with Wonder Woman interrupting Batman's catchphrase.
  • Base-Breaking Character: Either HISHE'S Batman is awesome personified or an obnoxious individual with a stale catchphrase.
  • Better Than Canon:
    • Their parody of the Terminator/Back to the Future crossover is generally considered much better than the later Terminator films, and especially than Terminator Genisys, which had a very similar premise.
    • The HISHE Review of Justice League has a brief sequence, complete with pre-rendering, storyboards about how they believed Justice League would have turned out based on the Foreshadowing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and many of the comments believe that their take i.e. a Superman Came Back Wrong being used by Steppenwolf and fighting the League before Lois brings him back, was a more interesting film than what actually got made, even if the producers make it clear that they weren't too keen on that direction, since it relied on "Evil Superman". Snyder's comments in a 2019 Q&A also confirmed that his original idea for the film was quite close to how HISHE saw it, making this cartoon the nearest facsimile to how Snyder's vision could have panned out.

    • There's a crowd that feel that the HISHE's rendition of The Last Jedi is better than the actual film, especially since Admiral Ackbar plays a greater role in some major plot points rather than be anticlimactically killed off when the bridge explodes and being replaced by Admiral Holdo, going so far as to perform her iconic Heroic Sacrifice instead and using his memetic line in the process and addressing idiot plot moments, notably Rose and Finn land the ship in the tall grass rather than on the beach so they don't get arrested for illegal parking. Lastly, the final battle has Luke and Rey actually battling and curb-stomping the AT-ATs by having Luke stopping their blasts and striking them back instead of Luke simply distracting Kylo Ren and the First Order by sending a force projection.
    • Several fans much preferred the adaptation of The Rise of Skywalker in which the Jedi past actually show up as physical Force ghosts to help fight Palpatine, including animated-originals Ahsoka Tano and Kanan Jarrus.
  • Advertisement:
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: One of the endings to Logan is a musical number showing the titular character joining the rest of the X-Men in the afterlife. Even the end credits acknowledged how odd it was.
  • Broken Base:
    • "Because I'm Batman!" is either still absolutely funny after all these years, or it has gone on for too long, and become an annoyance. It's even lampshaded by Superman, who has become increasingly exasperated by the gag, and Batman, who doesn't seem to understand why.
    • The episode they did for Logan. Some consider it a well-done, touching tribute to the film and Hugh Jackman's career as Wolverine while others felt the whole Les Misérables parody was a Big-Lipped Alligator Moment and the episode didn't have enough humor. Then there are those who felt the Deadpool cameo was either the best part of the video, or a random gag that ruined what was a good tribute to Hugh Jackman's portrayal as Wolverine.
    • The increased use of Actor Allusions as time has gone on has become divisive with the fans. Some find them funny, but others have gotten tired of how any character played by Andy Serkis is going to have a phase where they scream "PRECIOUS" or even appear physically as Gollum himself, or how entire chunks of videos are taken up by actor references (such as Vader and Krennic referencing a similar scene in The Dark Knight Rises during their Rogue One video, or basically half of It: Chapter Two).
  • Catharsis Factor:
    • Seeing Thanos getting utterly humiliated by HISHE is utterly delightful for MCU fans after he killed off many fan-favorite heroes along with half of the universe in Avengers: Infinity War.
    • By the same token seeing Mysterio taken out, as well as exposed thanks to Peter showing the holograms with the water hose as well as EDITH revealing his identity to him when he was about to hand the glasses to him is satisfying after he framed Peter for his crimes as well as set himself up to be seen as a hero after his death in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
  • Character Rerailment: In the Spider-Man: Far From Home video, the Tobey Maguire version of Spidey isn't the whining manchild he's been depicted as for years. He's genuinely friendly, upbeat and not once cries.
  • Crosses the Line Twice:
    • Mowgli getting eaten shouldn't be funny. It then gets funny when everyone tells Bagheera that he murdered a child while singing about how wolves eat babies.
    • Vanessa in Deadpool (2016) getting killed by getting crushed. Darkly funny. Vanessa gets crushed by every piece of rubble from the explosion. HYSTERICAL.
    • The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actually using their weapons to murder Krang is morally questionable. But when Michelangelo suddenly whips out a random pistol out of nowhere and unloads all of its bullets into Krang, that's when it's hilarious.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Unsurprisingly, Wonder Woman is already wildly popular due to being the Only Sane Man and her happiness at getting to attend the Cafe. At least a few fans found themselves just as attracted to her HISHE counterpart as her film counterpart, and then there's her Adorkable dancing. Some fans are even clamoring for her to join Batman and Superman as a regular.
  • Esoteric Happy Ending:
    • One of the endings in How Captain America: Civil War Should Have Ended has the fight with Iron Man against Captain America and Bucky averted, and the ending plays things as though everything is happy and Zemo's plans are thwarted. This completely ignores that the heroes who sided with Captain America are still fugitives just like in the movie.
    • The Superhero Cafe ending for Avengers: Endgame plays it out as Everybody Lives by bringing Natasha from the other timeline which is treated as a happy ending...except for the timeline in which Natasha lies as even ignoring the fact that she is a completely different person than the Natasha they knew, there won't be a way to complete the Infinity Stone in that timeline to undo Thanos's fingersnap as Clint won't have a way to retrieve the Soul Stone from Vormir. Not to mention that either way, they're robbing the Avengers of that timeline of their Natasha.
  • Fridge Brilliance:
    • At one point in the "Bat Blood" video, Batman notes that "Band-Aids don't fix building holes". This may come across to some people as being a bit of a weird thing to say, but this is Batman who's saying it. If anyone would know if you could fix major structural damage with Band-Aids, it would be him.
    • During the Infinity War Deadpool video, the Joker bets that Thanos's kill count will be 0. Considering the trope he invented, it's only appropriate that he doesn't think Thanos will be able to kill anyone off.
    • Why did they choose Johnny Storm as the Fantastic Four member killed in the Thanos Snap? Because both actors were already in the MCU.
  • Fridge Horror:
    • How Back to the Future Part II Should Have Started provides a rare example not lampshaded by anyone in-universe. Doc's claim that giving Marty vague hints about life in 2015 could alter it drastically might make one wonder if he should claim responsibility for Princess Diana's failure to become queen of England (negating a prediction of the USA Today paper Doc that purchased on October 22, 2015). Then again, he doesn't name-drop her when he describes some of the events becoming undone...
    • How the Avengers: Endgame Trailer Should Have Ended. Sure, it's awesome seeing several heroes joining in the fray. But when you think about it, some teams are missing their other members. When The Incredibles are seen, it's just Violet, Helen, and Jack-Jack. When the Defenders are seen, it's just Luke Cage and Daredevil. Hell, only Sora and Donald are present among the Sora/Donald/Goofy trio!
      • Donatello has it the worst. It's just him, implying that the other Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, April O'Neil, Master Splinter, and their other allies got snapped.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • In The Amazing Spider-Man, Batman and Superman laugh at Spidey for his "But those are the best kind" line regarding breaking the promise he made to Captain Stacy to stay away from Gwen and continue dating her. This becomes inherently less funny in the sequel, when Gwen dies as a consequence of this promise being broken. Spidey even goes as far as to hold Batman at gunpoint until Superman reverses time like he did to save Lois.
    • The Iron Man 3 video has Superman prepare for Man of Steel by removing his Underwear of Power, then flying out through the Super Café ceiling. The hole he leaves behind, and the others pointing out his lack of an apology for making it, now seem like unintentional foreshadowing of DCEU Supes' disregard for property damage
    • In Batman v Superman, the part of the spoof where Flash comes back and warns Batman about "Rotten Tomatoes everywhere", based on a scene from the film that seemed to foreshadow Justice League and that was used to mock Batman v Superman's negative reception, becomes this when Justice League came out and got a similarly negative reception and flopped at the box office.
    • In their The Force Awakens spoof, the scene where Luke pops up before Kylo can kill Han and skewers him becomes somewhat cringeworthy after The Last Jedi came out, where we learn that Luke almost did this in canon because he feared the darkness within Kylo.
    • In the Harry Potter and the Best Picture Summary video, Harry, Dumbledore, Snape, and Voldemort complain how Deathly Hallows Part 2 wasn't nominated for any major awards at the Oscars. When Hermione mentions that they were nominated for Art Direction, Makeup, and Visual Effects, they scoff it off, saying that they could win those with their eyes closed. As it happens, the film didn't win any of those Oscars either.
    • In Thor, when Superman and Batman point out Odin's mistakes, Thor quips, "Well at least I have a father. Come Thor Ragnarok and Odin has died.
    • In Thor Ragnarok, Loki tells Batman "Do you think I'm going to get people's hopes up and then ultimately let them down when the time comes?" where Batman answers by saying "Yes." Come Infinity War where Loki dies in a failed attempt to kill Thanos.
    • In the Infinity War episode, Thor uses the gauntlet to undo all the damage caused by Thanos, including bringing Gamora back to life. It's revealed in Endgame that not even the gauntlet could bring whoever is sacrificed for the Soul Stone back from the dead.
      • In relation to the above, Vision is brought back to life with a new body at the end of the episode. Vision is among those who remain dead by the end of Endgame.
  • Growing the Beard: Their video on Spider-Man 3 is generally seen as what put them on the map.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • In How Fast & Furious 6 Should Have Ended, everyone except The Rock and Vin Diesel dies against the tank. Including Paul Walker's character.
    • In How the Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer Should Have Ended, Ultron terrifyingly quoting Disney films prompts Black Widow to exclaim "You're ruining my childhood". Agent Carter revealed the Black Widow program used Disney films to teach the girls english, mixed with subliminal messages.
    • In How Star Trek Into Darkness Should Have Ended:
      • The comment on milking Leonard Nimoy for multiple sequels becomes harsher upon his death in February 2015.
      • The same HISHE also features Han Solo dying, which becomes harsher after the events of The Force Awakens.
    • The tenth episode of the Superhero Café predicted the biggest spoiler for The Force Awakens that Han dies eight months before to the movie's release.
    • Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man being happy that he's going to be in the MCU starts looking kind of sad when you realize that the Spider-Man for the MCU has been recast with Tom Holland.
    • In A New Hope, Dodonna angrily calls out Leia for leading the Empire to the Yavin base, which then gets destroyed by the Death Star. Shortly after the release of the Special Edition, Carrie Fisher suffered a massive heart attack and passed away.
    • In Return of the Jedi, during the Rebel Briefing scene, one of the rebel soldiers bitterly comments that "all we rebels ever do is die to accomplish things...except for the A-Team (the saga's heroes) over there". Come Rogue One, a story about a group of rebel soldiers who would've been nothing more than side characters in the main films, who all died in a grueling battle to steal the Death Star's plan, and the only people who survived are the major characters who are guaranteed to make it to other films, aka the 'A-Team' heroes. It crosses into Heartwarming in Hindsight as in their own take on Rogue One Everybody Lives.
    • In one scenario on the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 skit, Rocket is the only Guardian who is killed. Come Infinity War, he is the only surviving member of the Guardians.
    • "The Dead Pool" has the Marvel villains, along with Palpatine, The Joker, Voldemort, and Zod bet on who Thanos will kill in Infinity War. Joker bets that Loki will kill Thanos after faking his death, Zod openly admits that he would be pissed if Groot dies, and Deadpool dismisses the notion that Marvel would kill off Black Panther, going so far as to call it commercial suicide. Come the movie Loki, Groot, and T'Challa, alongside many others, end up biting the dust, with Loki dying in a failed attempt to kill Thanos. Of course, for the very reason Deadpool pointed out, almost no one expects T'Challa to stay dead. However, while the snapped characters are returned to life in Endgame, those who died otherwise weren't so lucky. Special mention goes to Gamora, who despite returning to life, is not the same Gamora who was sacrificed by Thanos.
    • In How Doctor Strange Should Have Ended, one of Batman's uses for the Time Stone is to save Vision when the Mind Stone gets ripped out of his forehead. In Infinity War, the Time Stone is indeed used on Vision...by Thanos to undo his Heroic Sacrifice and restore the Mind Stone before ripping it out of his forehead.
    • The Avengers: Endgame trailer HISHE features Sora and Donald as among the survivors of the Snap. In Kingdom Hearts III, it's Sora who disintegrates in a similar fashion to Infinity War at the end after saving Kairi with the power of waking. Ironically, once Endgame finally came out, it was also easy to compare it to Iron Man's Heroic Sacrifice.
    • Tom Holland's Spider-Man being happy that he's "finally home" in the Homecoming HISHE is a lot harder to stomach given that Sony has now withdrawn Peter Parker from the MCU after a financial skirmish in their deal with Marvel Studios. Thankfully, they managed to negotiate a third film to be released at 2021, so Spider-Man is back home... for now.
    • The Villain Pub episode centering around everyone predicting what would happen in Rise of Skywalker has many of the villains predicting Palpatine returning. This becomes a lot less funny when it actually does happen and was heavily criticized.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Iron Man trying to justify the murder of Obadiah Stane by reminding Superman and Batman that if you throw a criminal in jail, he'll just swear revenge on you and break out, is a twofer in that this bit of Genre Blindness takes effect in Iron Man 2 when dealing with Whiplash, and the conversation Superman has with Iron Man about killing your villains is even funnier after Man of Steel came along.
    • "I am not a joke! I am Spider-Man!" And after the announcement that Jessie Eisenberg joined the cast of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the response to that is "yeah, well I'm Lex Luthor!''.
    • Iron Man objected to Superman comparing Siri to JARVIS, but now JARVIS also has an iPhone app.
    • How Thor should have ended? At that point when he got his powers back, and he had to return to Asgard to fight against Loki... Thor looks back at his hot girlfriend, and decides to leave all behind to stay with her. Besides the other surprises and differences in context, Thor: The Dark World ends basically that way.
    • The Avengers having Nick Fury quote Pulp Fiction is even funnier after Captain America: The Winter Soldier showed the Ezekiel 25:17 quote on his "grave".
    • In the "thanks for watching" section", Clark is floating in the sea with the appearance of Aquaman, whispering, "Justice League..." at the end. It was later confirmed that Aquaman was indeed the one who helped Clark after the oil derrick scene and there will be a Justice League movie in which Aquaman will appear.
    • The happy ending epilogue for How The Amazing Spider Man 2 Should Have Ended jokes that Sony made a deal with Disney so Spider-Man could appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A few months later this actually happened.
    • Speaking of The Amazing Spider-Man, in How The Amazing Spider-Man Should Have Ended - Bonus Scene, The Lizard delivers a Lame Comeback to Peter saying that he's [Peter] the one who wants to be a lizard. Two years later in Edge of Spider-Verse #2 Peter would end up becoming the Lizard in an effort to become more like his friend Gwen.
    • How Terminator Should End suggests it's only a matter of time before machines wisen up and send a Terminator to kill Sarah Connor in her childhood. Terminator Genisys did exactly that.
    • A parody music video with Batman singing a version Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" called "Bat Blood", before the announcement of Batman: Bad Blood.
    • At the end of the "Bat Blood" video, Batman hints that he and Taylor Swift had a thing going, which Superman doesn't buy at all. Swift would later date an actor known for playing a comic book character.
    • The Winter Soldier parody ended with Superman and Batman warning the Marvel heroes about their movies' overuse of the Disney Death. Flash forward to Batman v Superman, which ends with Superman himself "dying" to stop Doomsday.
    • All of Batman's jabs at Superman for killing in Man of Steel comes back to bite him after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where Batman was shown to have zero problems with using lethal force to defeat his enemies. The "How Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Should Have Ended" episode had Deadpool lampshade this and gives Batman an Ironic Echo about him killing his enemies after Batman basically stated to Deadpool that killing your enemies is wrong in "How Deadpool (2016) Should Have Ended."
    • How X-Men: Apocalypse Should have Ended leads up to Magneto learning that Quicksilver was his son, and gushing about it to everybody, even asking Xavier "Charles, do YOU have a son?!" Xavier replies "Not at this time..."
    • How Avengers: Age of Ultron Should Have Ended has Spider-Man show up to stop the train, and Magneto arrive to defeat Ultron and his robotic army, before pointing out that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are his children and that they are "mutants". In 2015, Marvel made a deal with Sony for Spider-Man to appear in the MCU, and the rights to the X-Men eventually reverted to Marvel in December 2017.
    • How Guardians of the Galaxy Should Have Ended shows Peter Quill having traded in his Walkman for an iPod prior to meeting Batman and Superman at the Super Cafe. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, after said Walkman gets destroyed by his father he replaces it with a Zune, Microsoft's short-lived competitor to the iPod during the last few years of the Turn of the Millennium.
    • In "The Dead Pool" short:
      • Palpatine predicts that Thanos will kill everyone except Ant-Man who goes back in time and teams up with Captain Marvel in the Avengers sequel. It turns out that Palps was (somewhat) right when most of the newer heroes are killed (with only the original Avengers, Rhodey, Rocket, and Nebula being explicitly shown to survive) and The Stinger shows Nick Fury sending out a distress signal to Captain Marvel, who will be appearing in the Avengers sequel. Then Ant-Man and the Wasp confirms that the Quantum Realm actually can be used for time travel.
      • Red Skull may not have gotten his wish of Cap dying three times, but at least he actually appears in the movie long after everyone had given up hope of ever seeing him again.
      • As of Endgame, Joker was right in the sense that the snapped characters won't stay dead, with only Tony and Black Widow being killed off. Ultimately, they were wrong about Cap, Hulk, War Machine, Hawkeye and Korg dying in either film, but Ned was listed on the board, and he apparently was also one of the snapped characters before coming back like the rest.
    • After the ending of Deadpool 2, Deadpool coming back in time to save Logan makes a lot more sense.
    • In How God of War Should Have Ended, after killing the Greek Pantheon, Kratos' next targets are the Norse and Egyptian Pantheon. God of War (PS4) has him in Midgard with a son, who both no doubt will be facing Thor at some point. The stinger of the game even has him facing off with Thor.
    • Towards the end of How Toy Story 3 Should Have Ended, Sulley from Monsters, Inc.. shows up at Andy's college and scares him. The short came out in 2011; Monsters University came out two years later.
    • How Infinity War Should Have Ended ends with Thor accidentally using the Infinity Gauntlet to snap all the villains in Villain Pub out of existence. This is actually what Iron Man winds up doing to Thanos and his troops at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
    • In the same episode, the second scenario where the heroes on Titan defeat Thanos is one where the latter is turned into a baby by Dr. Strange and is adopted by Tony. Come Endgame it's revealed that Tony and Pepper ended up having a baby girl over the five year Time Skip. Not only that, but Drax's suggestion to kill baby Thanos and the immediate reaction mirrors that of what Rhodes had suggested and Banner's response.
    • Also from the How Avengers: Infinity War Should Have Ended episode, after Nebula discards the gauntlet when she's done using it to kill Thanos in the third scenario where they win, Tony calls dibs on it only to be stopped by Strange. Tony ends ups being the one to use the second Infinity Gauntlet to defeat Thanos in Endgame.
      • The fifth and final scenario involves Thor slicing Thanos' arm off so he can't use the Infinity Gauntlet anymore. What's the first thing Thor does to Thanos in Endgame? He chops his hand off.
    • The How Frozen Should Have Ended video, which had Elsa join The Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters as depicted in the X-Men film series. Frozen was a film by Disney and the X-Men film series was made by 20th Century Fox. The scenario becomes much more likely in light of Disney's acquisition of Fox.
    • In How The Avengers Endgame Trailer Should Have Ended, Captain America says that if he gets stuck in the past, then he will save the booth. In the epilogue of Endgame, looks like he did more than just save a booth...
    • A year after Blade made an appearance at the end of the Black Panther (2018) video, he actually was added to the MCU.
    • Batman being able to survive Thanos's snap was considered an asspull until a deleted scene from Endgame reveals that the nature of the Snap is that it wills people out of existence. Given how Batman has a strong will, there's an easy explanation now.
    • Similar to "The Dead Pool" some of the villains guesses' in "Return Of The Palps" are rather close to what happens in The Rise of Skywalker.
      • Rey taking on the Skywalker name for herself without actually being a Skywalker is close to Loki's guess that the next Jedi Order would be called Skywalkers, which could end up being seen as his own Alternate Character Interpretation.
      • Prowler, Cobra Commander, and Voldemort are the ones who guess that Rey has a connection with Palpatine, with the latter two being off about Palpatine being her father instead of actually being her grandfather.
      • The Joker, Magneto, and Deadpool guess that Anakin may show up, but it was only as a voice-only cameo that, as Magneto predicted, Hayden Christensen was credited for.
      • Zod was completely right in that Ben and Rey team up to defeat Palpatine, then they kiss, he simply forgot to add "And then Ben dies ten seconds afterward."
      • Khan was sort of right in that Palpatine would be defeated by the ghosts of the Jedi, as their spirits actually help Rey get up to kill him again, even if their appearances is only vocal.
  • Ho Yay: The Super Café segments involving Superman and Batman. Indeed, in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 parody, a deranged Spider-Man extorts Superman to turn back time to bring Gwen to life by pointing a gun to Batman's head and threatening to kill him.
  • It's Short, So It Sucks!: Many fans have noted that the length of the Jumanji short is rather... well... short. Most of the recent shorts tend to be 5 or 6 minutes long, while the Jumanji short is about 3 minutes long. To make matters worse, about half the video is spent on advertisement.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Voldemort might be an evil bastard, but in HISHE he gets no respect from the villains. He's often mocked by the ones like the Joker or Khan. In the Infinity War HISHE, he feels afraid of dying again in the same way he did in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 and clings to the Joker for comfort, only to be stabbed by the Joker just because he finds it amusing.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Here's a bright idea: Why don't you make sure that [logic that could be used to prevent problem from occurring]?" Explanation 
  • MST3K Mantra: Though the primary purpose of the series is to point out Fridge Logic, it's not above ignoring certain facts about the parodied series and creating its own Fridge Logic for the sake of a joke.
  • Pandering to the Base: People who don't like particularly divisive movies such as the early ones of the DC Extended Universe or The Last Jedi are very likely to love the show's inputs on them. To the others, it looks like it's more about purely roasting these movies than just finding funny alternate endings to themnote .
  • Rooting for the Empire: Quite a few were rooting for the villains against Batman in the Boss Battle episode for Villain Pub. It helps that HISHE!Batman is an incredibly obnoxious fool most of the time, and the video specifically parodies and makes fun of his "Bat-God" Crazy-Prepared reputation. The Emperor getting the best of Batman is even a moment of awesome in its own right.
  • Seasonal Rot: As the years have carried on HISHE has become increasingly less funny in the eyes of some, going from actually pointing out flawed logic in movies that could fix a lot of problems very quickly to basically removing 99% of the movie's driving forces while clumsily jamming in nostalgic pop culture cameos and shilling Batman.
  • Sequelitis: General opinion of The LEGO HISHE 2 is that, while still funny in its own right, it isn't nearly as funny or creative as the first The LEGO HISHE.
  • Spoiled by the Format: "How The Jungle Book Should Have Ended" credits Jon Bailey as Kaa before Kaa shows up in The Stinger.
  • Squick: Grendel's mother in Beowulf, um, bubbles from a wrong location.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: Any time you hear an iconic theme in this series it won't sound exactly like the original, because of copyright rules.
  • Take That, Scrappy!:
    • Every HISHE for the Star Wars prequel trilogy always finds a way to slaughter the "lovable" Jar Jar Binks.
    • After Deadpool gets kicked out of the Villain Pub, he gets back at the patrons by seating his in name only X-Men Origins: Wolverine incarnation in his place. Everyone promptly runs away in disgust.
    • Superman and Batman inviting all the DC heroes to join the DC Extended Universe suddenly gets really awkward when Green Lantern shows up. Even Green Lantern admits it was a joke, switching to Deadpool's costume and saying that "[he's] not doing that anymore."
    • Holdo is hated by many in The Last Jedi due to withholding information from the rebels, seemingly, for no reason. Fans rejoiced when Admiral Ackbar replaced her as the temporary leader and actually tells the rebels of Leia's intentions while simultaneously shoving Holdo aside where she is ignored by the rest of the cast.
    • The DC Extended Universe version of Lex Luthor is a very divisive version of the character. Come to How Justice League Should Have Ended, Lex Luthor is brought to the Villain Pub, but is immediately kicked out.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot:
    • In the How Ant-Man Should Have Ended video only two scenes from the movie are covered and then it's straight to the café and never goes into Scott's training or even Scott's fight with Falcon. Additionally, viewers wanting to see if Hope really could've outsmarted Cross without help from Scott and his friends might feel disappointed to learn that she does so not as the new Wasp, or by fighting Cross at all; instead she and Hank just exploit Cross' Bond Villain Stupidity.
    • In How Avengers: Infinity War Should Have Ended rather than dealing with the Downer Ending where Thanos wins, it's instead changed to typical happy ending, which many found to be disappointing, especially after having the "Dead Pool" video.
      • In that same video, the ending had one hell of a Sequel Hook: every villain in the Villain Pub was turned into dust, but not before Palpatine paged Deadpool for help. It seemed to lead into a bigger story where Deadpool would have to save all the villains... but this plotline is resolved too quickly in the Deadpool 2 HISHE, where Deadpool steals the Infinity Gauntlet and brings them back to life offscreen.
  • Ugly Cute: Baby Thanos in the Infinity War HISHE. He still looks like his adult self... except even more adorable.
  • Uncanny Valley:
    • Purposely done to baby Renessmee in Breaking Dawn Part 2, mocking the use of CGI in the actual movies.
    • Tobey Maguire in How Spider-Man: Homecoming Should Have Ended. While his face has been given an updated model, his Spider-Man suit hasn't. As such, Maguire looks off compared to Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland.
    • Superman in How Justice League Should Have Ended is given a Clutch Cargo Synchro-Vox-like mouth at the beginning, mocking the poor CGI used to hide his actor's mustache.
  • Unexpected Character:
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: The Inside Out, The Wizard of Oz, Toy Story 3 and The Phantom Menace episodes of the show accidentally showed up on the YouTube Kids app when it first launched, probably due to a mix-up with the HISHE Kids channel, which actually makes child-friendly content. Despite some episodes being based on family-friendly films, the series isn't exactly for kids. For example, the Toy Story 3 episode ends with Andy getting injured in a car crash when his toys talk to him and going mentally insane over what happened and a scene in the Wizard of Oz episode shows the Wicked Witch being shot with a gun.
