YMMV / The Frollo Show

Go To

  • Acceptable Targets: chincherrinas isn't afraid to mock various works or people, including, but not limited to:
    • Pop singers like Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black.
    • Glee. In the first episode, even Frollo is horrified that such a thing exists.
    • Uwe Boll, unsurprisingly.
    • In Hell, Kim Jong-il, Saddam Hussein, and Osama bin Laden all make short cameos during Kneesocks' rurus rant. Perhaps the rurus taught them a lesson?
    • Obviously, the Nazis.
    • Lemongrab parodies this trope during his Hostile Show Takeover, decrying some works that are unacceptable compared to other works that have been better received by most.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation:
    • Is it Frollo's own fault he has so many enemies? Or is Frollo just unlucky enough to keep getting into these situations?
    • When Wilford Brimley is given the offer to join Los No Frollos, he turns it down on the grounds that he's lost his energy, but also states that he's "really not interested in that." He changes his tune when Hans and Yzma give him a potion that restores his energy, but before that point, had he merely crossed the Despair Event Horizon, or did he realize where his ambition would lead him, only for his energy restoration to turn it into an Ignored Epiphany?
    • Gaston interrupts Hans Frollo and Hades' apparent Heel–Face Turn by continuing to attack them. Did he maliciously attack them to be a dick, or did he genuinely not notice they were having a change of heart?
  • Angst? What Angst?: Frollo and Gaston find themselves in the Underworld for eternity? Oh well, time for some random shenanigans. Justified for Frollo, since he knows Death Is Cheap.

  • Awesome Music: A lot of the songs fit for their respective moods. But probably the crowning example is this remix of "Hellfire" (made by Chaos X), which plays during Frollo transforming into his unknown level Saiyan phase before flying towards a Wilford bird, ready to ram his gigantic sword into him.
  • Better Than Canon: There's a small but notable portion of the internet that considers this series' versions of Frollo and Gaston as far more entertaining and likable than their canon counterparts.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment:
  • Cargo Ship: Jafar seems to have this relationship with his staff as he falls into the Underworld.
  • Character Rerailment: Played menacingly straight, in a meta sense. As of "Frollo Gets Flashed", Frollo starts becoming more and more of a Knight Templar, in line with his characterization in his source material. And as of "Frollo Finally Does It" it comes back to bite him in the ass. Thankfully, Ronald McDonald of all people gives him a Heel Realization.

  • Crazy Awesome: Frollo and Gaston. Age doesn't stop either of them from performing numerous crazy stunts.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: With his wicked sneer, cryptographic sequencer, spirit people projectiles, and cross-guard lightsaber, Mormon Jesus became a hilarious antagonist.
  • Designated Villain: Hades counts since Frollo, who had once been his friend, had for no reason turned on him, broken his rurus and had Lefou shit on his face.
    • Let's not forget Konata who along with her friends was murdered and eaten by Bison and Guile in Leet Fighters. The revenge she seeks is completely justified (its just as reasonable as Uma Thurman's character from Kill Bill wanting revenge). Leet Fighters not only treats her character as a villain but plays her up entirely for laughs with her character getting killed every time she almost gets revenge. But that kind of dark humor is to be expected from chincherrinas.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Mormon Jesus got a large amount of popularity ever since his introduction in Leet Fighters 7 and made a surprise return in "Frollo Finally Does It".
  • Genius Bonus: In "Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita", it's stated that the Nazis are attacking from the right and the Communists from the left. This could just be a coincidence. Or it could be a joke based on their positions on the political spectrum.
  • Growing the Beard: Around the time of "Frollo Gets AIDS", the series starts getting a sense of continuity and becomes less of just a Youtube Poop. The creator of the series doesn't even consider the show to be Youtube Poop anymore.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • The Arabian Bros. committing a terrorist attack on Paris seems more disturbing in light of the Charlie Hedbo murders and theater attacks in that very city by Arab terrorists.
    • In the first episode, Gaston angrily throws his beer into the fireplace, setting Frollo's palace on fire. In episode 16, most of Frollo's palace is laid to ruin from combatants smashing through the walls and windows, and the cathedral spire was sliced off by Tommy Wiseau as part of his Taking You with Me attempt on Corset. Both of them become this in light of the massive fire that broke out at the Notre Dame cathedral on April 15, 2019, complete with the cathedral spire toppling over.
  • Heartwarming in Hindsight: Frollo begins Episode 6 with a eulogy stating the recently deceased Gaston was his only friend. Not only did he resurrect Gaston, but they have both accumulated a veritable army of True Companions since.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In Episode 6, LeFou randomly announces that he likes to lick balls and subsequently gives both Gaston and Frollo some oral treatment. Crude as the comparison is, it's rather amusing given his Adaptational Sexuality in Beauty and the Beast (2017).
  • "Holy Shit!" Quotient: It shoots through the roof from "Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita" onward.
  • Jerkass Woobie:
    • Mephiles. Despite being a Troll who enjoys playing antics on people, deep inside, he's lonely and just wants to have friends.
    • Gwonam becomes one as of episode 16, especially after he saw every one of his comrades die.
  • Les Yay/Twincest: Stocking is her sister's 400th evil ex. Frollo gets a nosebleed from this.
  • Memetic Mutation: Frollo tries to enforce this trope with himself, attempting to be on Know Your Meme.
    • The Bros Pose is slowly reaching meme status, as chincherrinas encourages anyone to make their own poses. You can view the fan-made Bros Pose gallery here, but be warned; a few of them are not well-done.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • Batiatus crosses it when he brutally murders Ib in cold blood. Stocking was so disgusted that she killed him by her own hands. Viewers hope he ends in the Sea of Darkness.
      • And this also counts as Wilford Brimley's own Moral Event Horizon, as Bleemo reveals to Irene that he was the one who plotted Ib's and Garry's deaths, making her vendetta against Wilford personal.
    • Frollo himself crossed it in-universe when he shouted at and hit Madotsuki because she was too happy to use her emotion-based powers to find Wilford. The entire cast was caught completely off-guard when this happened, and everyone except for Gaston left him to rot alone in the desert for it.
      • Subverted in Friends Story, as everyone understood why he did it, but Frollo was so broken that they abandoned him when it was clear they had no way of stopping him from wandering off, and they only marked Lemongrab's grave out of respect for him rather than a dig at Frollo's dickishness.
    • Ronald McDonald crossed it when he tricked Frollo into killing Yomika. If he didn't cross the Moral Event Horizon before, then this is the moment where he's beyond redemption.
  • Narm Charm: The entire series RUNS on this trope. Whenever there is a sad moment on one hand it is a You Tube Poop like series where there are fictional characters getting killed off yet it works so well you could end up crying for them.
  • Nausea Fuel: The food that Ronald McDonald gives Frollo to eat contains nasty worms inside, which Frollo accidentally eats and gains stomach pains.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Here.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Parodied when the Jew Producer decides to replace Gaston on the Frollo Show with Ashton Kutcher after his death.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Many viewers consider that The Irate Gamer is a much more likeable character due to his friendship with Best Hercules and a rather touching death scene.
  • That One Boss: Ronald McDonald effortlessly dodges Frollo's bullets, knocks his gun right out of his hand... Ayumu is weak against clowns... and to top it all off, Gameshark is useless against him! Thankfully he had a Weaksauce Weakness... or has he?
  • Too Cool to Live: Name at least one character a fan wishes to be back from the dead, and it's most likely Hans Frollo, Ib, or Tommy Wiseau.
  • True Art Is Angsty: "Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita", in spite of some comedic parts.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The amount of effort Chincherrinas put into episodes 16 and 17 really pay off and contrast with the earlier episodes. Special mention goes to this trailer for the Friends Story of "Frollo Finally Does It".
    • It took three years for him to make the Friends Story. It shows.
  • The Woobie:
    • Madotsuki, painfully so. She encounters deaths of both friends and enemies, especially three of her own friends, is broken by Wilford Brimley a handful of times, and gets depressed to end up altering Wilford's bizarre realm to find him. Is it any wonder why the poor kid snaps?
    • Ib also qualifies. Seeing her best friend impaled and then stomped on is enough to snap her into a beatdown, only for her to get murdered herself.
    • Irene gets this status from witnessing Garry's and Ib's aforementioned deaths.


How well does it match the trope?
