Hello fellow media lovers! It’s Saturday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more TV Tropes. Now, let’s begin!
- Getting Crap Past The Radar: This is one of my favorite, and most well-known tropes on the site. It occurs whenever a form of media puts something scandalous, or flat-out inappropriate into an otherwise family friendly TV show. It’s amazing at how many instances of this occur on TV, so I’ll give a few examples; The Yu-Gi-Oh! card Dark Necrofear was called Dark Necrophilia in the Japanese Anime, Megaman Battle Network 2 has a character asking you to “suck yo mama’s milk”, and the game is still rated E!, and,Plankton from SpongeBob attempts suicide in the episode “One Course Meal”.
- SNK Boss: This infuriating trope occurs in many great SNK fighting games, and others like King of Fighters, Marvel VS. Capcom, and The Battle Network Series. Many things cause a boss to rise to this level such as; Overpowered attacks, Cheating system limitations, or Rage-Inducing defense. Some examples of these bosses include; Goenitz from King of Fighters 96 (He can spam a wind barrier attack that blocks everything and hits super hard), Gil from Street Fighter 3rd Strike (His attacks hit extremely hard, and he can recover his health fully if he has meter), and BassXX from Megaman Battle Network 5 Double Team DS (He has 4,000 HP, a constantly regenerating aura, moves ridiculously fast, and his attacks can do up to 700 Dmg!)
