Wow I never realized this until now. Also don't forget
>scene where the characters are using a parody of facebook
>characters are watching videos on the internet in a page that looks like youtube
>everyone using smartphones
Well that stuff actually makes sense.
Facebook is the biggest social networking site these days.
Youtube is the biggest video sharing site these days.
A whole lot of people have smart phones these days.
It's not like the video game thing where they look completely ignorant of the gaming market and only know about Donkey Kong on the arcade machine.
Your analogy would be better fitted with:
>Scene where characters use a social media site. Parody of a site no one uses anymore.
>Characters are watching movies. Black and white with no sound.
>Everyone's mobile phone are still the size of bricks.
>tfw you really don't see what's wrong with any of the ones mentioned ITT besides a few exceptions
>the smart people can't resolve the problem
>the dumbest one did
>Comic relief character
>We find out
he has severe depression and uses comedy as a way to make himself feel better
>fourth wall joke
>they never break down a wall
It would be a shitty joke, but it's better than looking at the camera or conversing with the audience. Ya ain't never gonna be Buster Keaton, face it.
>Cartoon show attempts to tug at the audience's heartstrings through generic, half-assed sob-stories almost every episode, when such moments should be used sparingly.
You're not funny then. Try doing hard drugs or become an alcoholic. Otherwise at best you'll be a Jim Gaffigan. Forever doomed to be moderately famous and making millions off your clean some what funny comedy.

I thought she was called out on it just like she was called out on being a hypocrite. She just blew off all criticism and thanks to the whole villain clusterfuck, she got to keep being a genocidal hypocrite. Or keep thinking like one. IDK if she'll really go one another extermination campaign when the god-killing defender of man is still around
and the whole thing of her having a soft spot for him

It's the first time it's been done and already feels like a tired trope.
As long as we still get some Monkey Trouble, that's fine.
It may have only been out of a main team of 3, but fuckin Speedy always getting to use his "super cool move" to finish off the badguy. You better hope it was a character specific episode if you liked anybody else.

This should be done more often.
Think of it this way anon, Water and Air in small doses are not destructive at all, you have to actually concentrate to make them destructive. Fire on the other hand will give you burns in small doses, and burn cities in large doses. You have to concentrate to make fire beneficial.
She's less interesting than the funny guy who's done nothing of import or revealed any more of his character nor developed? Less interesting than the chauffeur? Even less interesting than the brooding sighing cool guy who does whatever the plot needs him to do?
That is a problem. The show should be her and the older people plus the Air kids.
>I'm coming for you next Viridi!
>Planet eating aliens out of nowhere
>rogue God assimilates with aliens
>chaos kin escapes, turns Pit into a ring for two years, takes over Palutena for the same time
>Hades and Viridi doing their shit in the meantime
>Pit gets back and rescues Palutena; Viridi helps for reasons
>Hades fucking around with the souls of everything
Between the Aurum and Hades, simply too much was going o for them to deal with Viridi, who while bad, wasn't a threat to the very concept of life. She then helped Palutena, making her an ally, who was probably affected by Pit and Palutena positively. The game finishes with Viridi saying something about ending humans, but she probably will never act on it since she saw what Pit did to Hades. Also, possible sequel hook.
Sakurai already confirmed he won't do a sequel. So if we DO get one (IDK how much the rest of Nintendo cares about Kid Icarus right now), it'd be without Sakurai.
Which isn't neccessarily bad. Sakurai's last big role in a Kirby game was directing Air Ride and being a Special Advisor for The Amazing Mirror. That was 10 years ago.
>there's an animal companion that's not a dog
>it acts like a dog anyways
I liked Toothless in HTTYD, even if he was basically a cat, because at least they didn't make him into some dumb mutt.
>character idolizes some celeb or whatever
>(celeb has never been mentioned before this episode and will never be mentioned after)
>turns out celeb is a jerk
>the fattest character's entire existence revolves around jokes about them being fat or always being hungry
Yeah but Sakurai made that game. He is auteur as fuck. A sequel made by someone else could NEVER live up to his work, just like if a Stanley Kubrick movie got a sequel directed by some other asshole.
Anyway, like I said, Kirby has done fine without Sakurai. Sakurai literally made Kirby along with being the head of several Kirby games. And in the 10+ years since he stopped working on them in any capacity, we've gotten Canvas Curse, Return to Dreamland, and Mass Attack. All fine games.
I love Uprising, but I'd say it can still reach greater heights when it comes to gameplay and story. Just gotta make sure to find a writer with a similar sense of humor as Sakurai
>character has this trademark object of his that he loves a lot
>in one episode, he sees some ads for a super futurisc version of that object, with tons of bells, whistles and functions that would make life easier
>he buys it, and ignores the former object since it's now obsolete
>shit happens, and for fucking stupid reasons the character finds out that the technology was evil and returns to his former object, as if being primitive was good
Isn't that some kind of horrible truth?
>cartoon animal character meets it's female counterpart and they have kids
now they MUST make up new names.
>terrible non-human joke sidekick character gets replaced by some who appears to be far superior
>sidekick gets bitter and jealous because the team has someone who isn't shit now
>welp good thing he was evil heh heh heh welcome back shitty sidekick
>celeb is an action movie star (usually a ripoff of Bruce Lee/Chuck Norris/Steven Seagal)
>character discovers that celeb never does his own stunts, is easily scared and is less manly than expected
>character hates him
>his friends help celeb to be his hero again
>Every character's first name is their species
>Except for the MC
Fuck you Franklin, what made you so special? You're a turtle
Fuck you Emily, why weren't you named Human?
>Every character has a unique name
>MC is named after their species
Why couldn't Catdog get unique names?
The /co/meleon is okay though, r-right?
i was just kidding, i fucking love lizards, best anthros
But Anon, don't you know? Franklin is the main character, so that automatically makes him special.
And CatDog gets a unique name because they're the main characters and are therefore special.
>Everyone's mobile phone are still the size of bricks
I'd actually like to see some more cartoons do this, it's kinda funny. Only one I've seen so far that did it was
The Problem Solverz
Yes, because the postman walks into a building, yells out " Hey you guys!",shouts out a nameand does not deliver it based on numbers.
mlp and lps, literally every fucking episode.
it can't be just about jokes, no, it needs to have some pseudo serious shit happening and lots of retarded misunderstandings that wouldn't fucking happen if the writers didn't write the characters as retards, or if the characters stopped for 30 seconds to explain what happened
>Character is suddenly wearing a watch
I wonder when the day will come that its commonplace for a character to pull out a smartphone when he wants to know the time, instead of looking at a watch or a clock.
>characters switch bodies
>they also switch voices
I've pointed this out before but it's pretty damn aggravating to think that the writers obviously thinks the audience are dumb to not figure that shit out on their own when the episode is all about the fact that they changed bodies in first place, and they still often point it out anyway later like "Hey, we switched bodies".
If you as a kid thought that was dumb when they did that then it is dumb idea to script in first place.
Kim Possible must have thought their audience must be especially retarded because in their body-switch episode they even switched places during the change, and also switched their goddamn voices!
But it works. I've done it successfully on loads of things. Printers, cellphones, vending machines, wonky outlets, you name it.
>cartoons that allow the word "crap," but you can't show comedic butt crack
at least he changes
>character is one way
