This is a tribute to the amazing Youtube channel Screen Junkies.  Please watch them.  Just know, if you are under 12 years of age, it might be a little too inappropriate.  Please fix if you are better at humor than me.

 

In a world where biomechanical beings live their life serving a giant robot that they call home, until an apocalyptic event causes them to move to the surface, where they start being menaced by the same being that caused the apocalyptic event, until bigger biomechanical beings defeat him and escape back to the workplace, where they work for a dead robot they call home, and new bigger biomechanical beings go off on a journey to make the dead robot alive, and they go underwater, and the original biomechanical beings end up actually doling the saving, and the bad guy is the giant robot, and the true robot gets sent to a post-apocalyptic planet, where he becomes another giant robot, kills the other one, and everyone lives happily ever after.  Whew!  That's a complicated story!  Wait, what?!  That was a SIMPLIFIED version?!  Oh, geez.

 

BIONICLE.

 

Team up with our arrogant fire-wielding hero.  Or our heroic light-wielding hero.  Or our naive fire-wielding hero.  Or our amazing fire-wielding hero.  Or our original arrogant fire-wielding hero who had some character development and became a heroic hero.  Or our wise/unknowing life-wielding outcast, as they fight against the evil Makuta Teridax, whose name reveal caused people to partially hate the guy who did it, and yet they suddenly love him when the story stops.

 

A franchise so beloved and creative, it sparked a slew of fanfics, MOCs, creative analyses, and entire new websites, only to be given the axe in favor of another franchise geared towards 8-year olds that is already running out of ideas.  I mean, seriously? Underground monsters?  You've got to be kidding me.

 

Witness the peril.  Witness the danger.  Witness the romance that everyone loved, but was de-canonized.  Come on, Greg!

 

This epic storyline is spread over nine whole years!  Including...

 

The one that began the "chronicle".

The one that started the theme of re-used characters.

The one with the underwhelming savior.

The flashback.

The totally-not-a-ripoff-of-Star-Wars-3.

The dark and scary one.

The unnecessary underwater one.

The epic one where the most epic stuff comes from online only.

The one with the kinda bad movie.

And the one that left me crying like a newborn.

 

Starring:

 

You know what, I refuse to do this part.  There are way too many.  Ugh.

 

The Best LEGO Theme Ever.

 

So if this is so good, why was it cancelled?  To save packaging?  They're cheap.

Slightly off topic, is it sad I read all that in the honest trailers voice? :P

Same at least for the second part. I'm having trouble finding the pacing in the first paragraph.

I think it was rather short, It would be great if it explained a bit more so as to make more jokes about some of the storylines or characters, nice work anyway!

You totally nailed the style, kudos!

Although the first paragraph is pretty long-winded, I have a feeling it would be pretty similar if it was done by screen junkies, so I think it fits.

I read this in his voice as well. Really funny. You should have done a quick run through of the years, just to make it a bit longer. However, you totally nailed the style of their script and it was quiet fun to read!

The style was spot-on. If possible, attempt to extend it a little more. There's a lot of stuff that could be potentially used.

Good idea!  I will once I get a Youtube channel.

Sums up BIONICLE perfectly... best quote from this work! :)

Capital execution! I read this all in the trailer voice!

 

But about the cast list...actually, they did a "Starring" list for ALL 151 Pokemon for their Honest Pokemon trailer, which was honestly the funniest part of the trailer. So here are a few (mediocreish) examples? Of course, limiting the cast list to characters with sets might be a good idea, too.

 

Onua Nuva: Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Roodaka: Bewbs (Another running Honest Trailers gag)

Turaga Dume: Doom

Morbuzakh: Audrey Two

Gadunka: More Teeth than the Osmond Family

 

Yes, those are pretty bad, but keep in mind that EVERYONE in the Starring lists is treated like this. And there are a LOT of references.

These are both great suggestions!  Mind if I use these?  Also, Akavakaku, can you put a guide as to what characters you're referring to?  That would be great.

Here's a spreadsheet. I threw in 2008-2010 for fun, although I think I might have missed a few from 2009. :shrugs:

 

The OP made me laugh though. That's a fine piece of work, and I'd like to see a video of that. :)
