Angry German Kid Wiki
Angry German Kid Wiki
This article is about using clichéd ideas. You may be looking for original ideas.

Clichés (IPA: /kliʃe/) here refer to those predictable and/or unoriginal things (like scenes, character behavior, video styles, and others). These might make AGK parodies less entertaining, and may make other users suspect you are a copycat like this parodist.

Angry German Kid is a popular internet meme where people can use their creativity to make parodies about what AGK does, such as playing games, watching videos, going to places, or fighting with enemies, and try to be as random as possible when they make the parodies.

However, there exists a lot of situations that Leopold does or happens to him that lack a lot of logic, and those that even if we think through the situation we can't get past the question "How the hell does that happen?!" and said situations are called clichés. Sometimes they can even happen repeatedly.

NOTE: The following cliché should appear in at least one video in order to be confirmed.

  • Olive means that the following cliché exists from years ago but isn't used commonly in parodies.
  • Green means that the following cliché is close to completely fine for parodists to use, as long as it's not abused.
  • Blue means that the following cliché should be used with attention, this means that parodists need to be really careful when using it as it is getting really close to becoming too cliché.
  • Red means that the following cliché shouldn't be used anymore. Parodists should stop using that cliché because it got popular, overused and make parodies feel very old and uninteresting.
  • Bold and italicised means that this type of cliché is annoying when it happens continuously, or it's just flat-out hateful unless you can back it up.
  • If a cliché has this icon -----> ⚠, then it means that the mentioned cliché contains disturbing, epileptic, and/or inappropriate content (such as punching, blood, explosions, dangerous acts, profanity etc) that is NOT suitable for younger audiences or people with disabilities.


NOBODY is the boss around here. Nobody is forced to use these clichés, nor should you attack other users for using them. You can use these clichés but it won't make AGK as good as it was supposed to be. But it's not like if you use ONE cliché you get your YouTube channel terminated/suspended/disabled or anything like that. Just remember, using these old clichés that are overused will create tensions and criticism in the AGK Community. If you want to turn these clichés into original ideas, you can make a different plot out of them.

List of Clichés

With that being said, here is a list of various clichés that are still overused in AGK parodies:

Leopold's behavior

  1. Leopold gets abused by his parents (mostly his dad) numerous times mostly because of something he didn't do in purpose, for trying to defend himself, for doing something he didn't know the consequences, etc. (Unless someone decides to divorce or grounds Leopold for up to a week) (Also, this will make Leopold a Butt-Monkey in your parodies if you use this cliché. For more information on the Butt-Monkey trope, click here)
  2. Leopold is very impatient. 7 seconds? No! He thinks that's "way too long"!
  3. Leopold never has remorse after killing his enemies. What an unlikable psychopath!
  4. If there's something that aims to be as futile as possible, Leopold will rage over it.
  5. Leopold has a short attention span. He smashes keyboards for most stupid reasons.
  6. Leopold is rude to everyone that gets in his way.
  7. Leopold sings Sausage Eggs. (Come on, his singing in reverse is no big deal anymore)
  8. Leopold doesn't get anything he wants on his birthday or Christmas.
  9. When Leopold watches a video, he says unoriginal and boring stuff constantly, or he hardly says anything at all.
  10. Leopold acts like a 5 year-old when he refuses to go to school. (Try to be original if you're gonna do this)
  11. If Leopold doesn't get the food he wants in a restaurant, he'll always hurt or kill the employee of the restaurant. Order something that's actually in the restaurant already, and don't ask for excessive amounts either!
  12. Leopold's grammar and handwriting are horrendous.
  13. At the end of some videos involving Leopold watching videos, he sees himself on YouTube and flips out.
  14. Leopold watches R rated movies and doesn't care about the film rating. Choose a better film that isn't actually R rated!
  15. Leopold blows up his school after he gets expelled from it.
  16. Leopold is never arrested, not even for extremely short periods of time for any crime he committed, from beating up someone to blowing up his school.
  17. Leopold spells English words in a dramatic way.
  18. Leopold uses references from kids shows to call his enemies such as: "Fat bloated eediots". (Reference to Ren and Stimpy)
  19. Leopold doesn't get jumpscared by a screamer right away. After a few seconds, he complains that he shat his pants.
  20. Leopold can escape prison easily, either using a bomb or finding a hidden tunnel, and the cops don't even go on a search for him.
  21. Leopold always brags about his schoolwork being the best in the whole class, or his videos being the best of a specific genre. This implies that he is narcissistic.
  22. Leopold gets punished by his parents/teacher(s) over a mistake that was not done on purpose.
  23. Leopold is not that crazy, he knows how to control his anger sometimes. This makes the name "Angry German Kid" seem like a misnomer.
  24. Leopold has ripped-off hatred on celebrities, such as the infamous Justin Bieber.
  25. Leopold gets pissed about his stuff coming back on his desk.
  26. Leopold still uses his computer while grounded. He wasn't supposed to use it at the time.

Actions in School

  1. In many parody series, Leopold is confirmed to be the worst student of the whole school for many reasons: for misbehaving in school, for playing games in class, for insulting the schoolmates (including the teachers and the principal), for cutting/skipping school, for smashing the school keyboard(s), for breaking the school computer, for screaming in class while playing games, for cheating in tests, etc.
  2. Leopold is in 8th-11th grade, and he gets assigned a Stupid Quiz or the Math Times Table. Didn't they teach this in elementary school? (As long as he doesn't fail)
  3. Leopold is always assigned an essay on something. There are other things to learn there, you know!
  4. Leopold gets assignments/essays of too many pages/words and he only says that he doesn't want to do it rather than giving an actual excuse. (Let's be honest, 1000 or more words is a lot.)
  5. Leopold is new to the school, but the principal already knows Leopold's dad's phone number. (How long have they known each other anyways?)
  6. Leopold's principal suspends him over mostly dumb reasons. For example, being locked in an old bathroom for hours or standing up to a bully. (If Leopold says the truth, Leopold's principal was supposed to believe him instead of suspending him for a completely stupid reason)
  7. Leopold can endure minutes playing games and watching videos at school without being caught. (Leopold's teacher might be too deaf to hear him talking and screaming at the computer, or Leopold could be doing it internally; in his mind.)
  8. Leopold's teachers and/or principal mostly have bizarre/raunchy last names like Sukscox, Diknoz or Lixadik. What kind of parents did they have?
  9. Leopold's means of transportation to school is unknown in most cases. Either by car, school bus, or walking.
  10. Leopold and his school friends don't wear school uniforms. (Yet again, there are a lot of schools that don't require a uniform)
  11. Leopold doesn't go to school every day. (We know the series lacks a timeline, but it's not good to take too many days off)
  12. Leopold and his classmates are always assigned to write something based on the teacher's opinion. For example; "Today we will be writing an essay about why The Annoying Orange rocks." (Seriously, what if one if the students besides Leopold doesn't like or hates The Annoying Orange?)


  1. Leopold is obsessed with Unreal Tournament. For hell's sake, play something different, or be satirical about his love of the game!
  2. Leopold plays scary games like Scary Maze Game. ⚠ (This is discouraged for many obvious reasons.)
  3. When Leopold plays a game, he never shows patience, acts like a 5 year old spoiled brat, smashes a keyboard after losing, and ragequits very easily, making it a completely waste of an episode. (Is this what AGK became when it comes to playing games?)
  4. Leopold plays .exe games like Sonic.exe. ⚠ (This is literally overdone and isn't even friendly to sensitive people)
  5. Leopold gets a game cartridge for a console, but he still starts the emulator. (How does that even work?)
  6. Leopold doesn't bother waiting for an emulator to load.
  7. Leopold doesn't get a clue of when he is downloading viruses or fake software. [To be honest, (fictional) links (embedded to the email) like “” or “” actually have virus on them.]

Battle scenes

  1. Leopold has to start every single RPG battle with the ability "Keyboard Smash". (It's not fair to start every battle by always using the same ability!)
  2. Leopold gains EXP after an RPG battle, but it's unknown how much he has. (Are we supposed to keep track of that?)
    • If you still use this idea, make sure Leopold starts in 0 EXP in the first episode with a battle scene, and show total EXP after he gained them after battle scenes.
  3. Leopold fights characters that represent the parodist's favorites, but he always beats them.
  4. Characters never really die after losing in a battle.
  5. While in an RPG battle, one or two of Leopold's attacks are ALWAYS critical. (Take Atarster's Tantrum attack for example; we'll never see how effective it is when it isn't critical)
  6. The amount of damage dealt by a specific attack is not always a fixed value.
  7. In a lot of RPG battles, parodists use music from several Sonic The Hedgehog games, or simply don't pick music outside of one video game franchise.
  8. Leopold fights random characters.
  9. An enemy turns into their true form but turns back to their normal form after one hit. (It's just pointless doing it)
  10. Leopold fights with his keyboard. Seriously! Who does that?
  11. Leopold always wins in a fight against someone, even outside of RPG battles. It's worse if the said character should be physically stronger in their source. What kind of teenager can beat up a man and send him flying with just a keyboard?
  12. Leopold defeats an enemy and saves the world, but he ended up getting grounded and/or beaten up. How unfair!
    • Do his dad and/or his family want him to be defeated by an enemy, or the world to be in danger, or what?
  13. Other fighters like Jake and Noah, and enemies, don't have a battle menu and can't level up, but still earn EXP. How are we supposed to know what moves they have and how they have more/less HP? [Should we consider them NPCs (Non-Playable Characters)?]
    • This applies only to RPG styled battle scenes. More energetic video game styled battle scenes (such as Smash or Power Rangers Legacy Wars) is an exception to this cliché as they don't have battle menus and are not turn based and more fast paced.
  14. Leopold always fights a character after watching their videos.
  15. When Leopold goes to somebody's house, all that ever happens is a battle scene, and usually, a video game is played or a YouTube video is watched beforehand.
  16. Whenever the enemy has low HP, they will always use an ultimate or secret weapon to finish Leopold off, and this attack will always miss. [Is the attack supposed to hit Leopold (or be deflected by him)?]

Technical uses

  1. People make AGK parodies using online animation software like GoAnimate/Vyond or Plotagon. (These sites we mentioned gained notoriety for grounded videos and all that kind of crap.)
  2. AGK butterfly intros. Another unoriginal concept that has declined very quickly.
    • Not to mention that these are by far the most overmade intros in AGK history.
  3. Leopold and other characters can walk without walking animations, talk without mouth movements, and pick up things without arms. (This is impossible in real life, but then again, it's all scripted animation)
  4. Leopold can say different things with the same voice clips thanks to subtitles.
  5. Episodes don't always follow the previous one, creating plotholes in story-based AGK series.
  6. Leopold's classroom and other locations look like his room when he shows up. (Was Leopold's room build in interdimensional space just like the Führerbunker from the Downfall Parodies)
  7. Parodists overuse music that Leopold hates, such as "Tunak Tunak Tun" & Justin Bieber's "Baby", and they're all copyrighted.
  8. Email messages are represented as a blank white screen with the email's contents written on it using black text. That's not how receiving emails are supposed to work. For real-like email messages, take screenshots from your mail messages and edit them using Inspect Element. (At least, the video shouldn't contain a LOT of useless information)
  9. Using declined video editing software like Windows Movie Maker. Such software is possibly the cause of most clichés listed here.
  10. Parodists only use default subtitle fonts like Segoe UI (Vista, 7, 8/8.1, and 10) and Microsoft Sans Serif (XP).
  11. Leopold can see what the subtitles look like.
    • During AGK's Nightmare, for example.
  12. When Leopold does his work by hand or by typing on his computer, the scene doesn't always happen on-screen. In some intendances where Leopold does type on his computer, he usually just bangs on his keyboard.
  13. This type of intro.
  14. Many school principals or teachers in the AGK universe are portrayed by the crazy AGK assistant.
  15. Leopold sees screamers. How does this kind of prank never get old? ⚠
  16. Leopold is able to reference a past event, by mentioning the episode number that it took place.
  17. Leopold speaks German, and is able to read English.
    • Unless there is a reasonable justification, this counts as a cliché.
  18. Leopold can interact with the characters in videos Leopold watches.
  19. Shorter episodes around 3 to 5 minutes long usually have the most scripting, while episodes longer than 10 minutes usually consist of Leopold playing games or watching videos.
  20. The characters are always seen wearing the same clothes.
  21. Parodists overuse the strong punch sound effect from Dragon Ball Z.
  22. Female characters are typically portrayed by Leopold in a high-pitched voice.
    • This makes them sound like chipmunks, and that is not how they were supposed to sound. If you want the female characters to have a speaking role, use TTS (Text To Speech like IVONA or Vocalware) or female voice actors instead. However, it is highly recommended to use the former.
  23. Parodists keep using the same music for the episode title cards. (Are they even title cards most of the time?)
  24. Parodists are making short scenes/conversations that are pointless and serve little to no purpose to the episode. Try to make the conversations as long as possible to make sure the episode isn't anticlimactic; inspire the human's realistic conversations.
    • Write a script on Google Docs or a built-in software such as Word, Notepad, or other software after you have brainstormed it.
  25. Some parodies are 480p or lower and in the 4:3 aspect ratio. This isn't the old YouTube times anymore (2005-2013), try to make the video at least 720p or higher in the 16:9 aspect ratio.
    • 60fps is not necessary, but the frame rate shouldn't be less than 24.
  26. Parodists overuse the old face expressions.
  27. Using low-quality content, such as pictures with white background or the size of the picture being too small.
  28. The whole plot of an "AGK movie" is about killing an enemy such as Microsoft Sam or Justin Bieber. (C'mon, there's much better ways to create a plot for an internet movie.)
  29. An AGK series is actually composed by seasons, usually 10 episodes long. (This is actually an internet series, not a real TV show.)
  30. 2008/2009 styled AGK Series still exist nowadays.
  31. When violence happens on an episode, for example; when Leopold or other characters get beat-up, the scene always happens off-screen. (For example, the scene shows away from the violent scenes such as outside the door or a living room, exterior of the house or a building, a technical difficulties screen (Take MrSolarSun for an example), or just a black background.)
  32. Some parodists use inappropriate scenes for characters, for example; making sex with someone, gore, watching censored pornography scenes, pooping in the classroom, killing persons with a knife. ⚠
  33. Parodists keep making every classroom in the school Leopold is in having computers while most school computers are located at the School Library or the Computer Lab.
  34. Remaking someone's parodies.
    • Are we supposed to give credit to someone who made the original?
  35. Parodists include many existing fictional characters to their AGK series without any variety.

Existing episode ideas

  1. AGK plays [game name] or [game creepypasta] ⚠
  2. AGK watches [video name] or [video creepypasta] ⚠
  3. AGK babysits his brothers
    • Always divided in 3 parts, and always with similar storylines.
  4. AGK cuts/skips school
  5. AGK goes on vacation to [country name] or [concert name]
    • Long and silent driving scenes and live concert with copyrighted music, ending off with one that Leopold hates.
  6. AGK clones himself
    • The original person and the clone hate each other instantly.
  7. AGK goes to [restaurant name] or [store name]
    • Leopold is supposed to get his order instead of fighting with his employee enemy.
  8. AGK makes a Sparta Remix
    • Leopold tries to make a Sparta Remix but fails and gets negative comments from people.
  9. AGK vs. Ben/Sonic.exe/basically any creepypasta character
    • These 3 or 2-parted episodes by AGKMisadventures and Cansin13 are known for having tons of rip-offs.
  10. AGK Lost in Space
    • Another 3 parted episodes by Cansin13 that have been rip-offed many times.
  11. AGK goes on Username 666 ⚠
  12. AGK tries to upgrade his computer
    • When you are planning or making this episode, make sure Leopold successfully upgrade his computer instead of unintentionally downgrade from old to shitty OS.
  13. AGK gets revenge on [person]/his dad/his school
  14. AGK pranks his dad/family or AGK records his father at work
    • Videos involving Leopold recording his father at work will most of the time overlap with the previously mention cliché above.
  15. AGK vs. [another angry kid]
    • These episode ideas always have the same backstory: [Angry Kid] Goes to School (separate video from main AGK series); the kid does something bad at school which gets him expelled -- from the LAST school in his native country. Because of that, the kid's dad always chooses Germany for emigration, just for the sake of being able to meet the German kid Leopold. What a coincidence.
  16. AGK pretends to be sick
    • Being afraid of the following day, family argument (which includes the only ever time that Leonard is scolded by Harold for saying a swear word), long gaming scene ending with Leopold and Harold playing together, the latter losing and threatening the former after screwing up a bet involving Harold's boss.
  17. AGK gets a virus on his computer
  18. AGK gets a job
    • The job is always at a fast food restaurant which also looks like Leopold's room, and he does the job poorly. He gets fired, and his dad beats him up.
    • If you still use this idea, it is recommended that the newer episodes of the idea involves Leopold working at a department store (like Walmart) or a hotel and/or does it fine.
  19. AGK gets scammed
  20. AGK's nightmare
    • Video editing filters, and a screamer/jumpscare at the end.
  21. AGK kills [person] or [creature] ⚠️
    • C'mon everyone! Murdering isn't always the answer.
  22. AGK breaks his computer
  23. AGK sees himself on YouTube
    • If you still use this kind of idea, don't make Leopold flip out while he watches himself.
  24. AGK watches AVGN
  25. AGK buys a new computer/keyboard
    • Let's just hope he doesn't break it after 2 days.
  26. AGK gets expelled/suspended from school
  27. AGK gets banned from Unreal Tournament
  28. AGK goes camping
  29. AGK goes to the movies
  30. AGK goes to the hospital/doctor/dentist
    • It is recommended to be more original with the plots if you wanna use this idea.
  31. AGK gets busted
  32. AGK gets arrested or goes to jail
  33. AGK hates or rants
  34. AGK gets Detention
  35. AGK takes the Stupid Quiz/Test
    • We must hope that newer episodes of this idea involves Leopold passing the Stupid Quiz instead of failing.
  36. AGK watches Pornography/Porn ⚠
    • Seriously, go watch something else that isn't inappropriate!
  37. AGK poops his pants at school
  38. AGK plays Scary Maze Game
    • As mentioned above, there's an obvious reason why this is cliché.
  39. AGK plays FNAF
  40. AGK orders Sausage Eggs on the internet
  41. AGK doesn't want/refuses to go to school
  42. AGK goes to Hell ⚠
  43. AGK goes to Heaven
    • This idea is not very popular at this time.
  44. AGK babysits Leonard
  45. AGK gets annoyed by Mario Head
  46. Angry German Kid goes on
    • A great idea would be to actually access as it is nowadays, instead of using the same clip from 2006 that shows viruses, and then killing Leopold's computer for good.
  47. Angry German Kid and Friends get in trouble at school

Other stuff

  1. Leonard and Leonidas are always abusive towards Leopold, no matter how old they are.
  2. Leopold gets dumped by his girlfriend just because of a disability, and she goes as far as organizing a meeting that goes against disabled people. (This is wrong on so many levels.)
  3. .exe versions of characters/creepypastas are depicted as evil. It's even worse if they're related to Hell, the Devil or the number 666. ⚠
    • Not to mention the fact that the term .exe isn't even that scary. As it is short for executable, which is a very common file type.
  4. When Leopold and his family go on vacation, there are driving sequences, and there are only very short, unoriginal conversations every 20 seconds or so.
  5. When Leopold and his family go on vacation, they ALWAYS go to a concert with copyrighted music after a long driving session, and the music ALWAYS ends with a song that Leopold hates. Go somewhere else or do something different!
    • Unless something happens.
  6. Using other meme references in parodies.
  7. Leopold's dad is a brony and he loves girly shows like Barbie and Bratz. He also claims they're not just for girls.
  8. Characters like Sailor Moon, Caillou, Barney, Noah & Tailsko. They're quickly getting overrated and unoriginal in this community. Villains who oppose against Leopold just because they're a character from an original source that they hate are frowned upon by some viewers due to lacking character development, realism and are there just to be there. The same goes for protagonists that have nothing distinctive which makes them boring and bland to some people, further decreasing their enjoyment.
    • Speaking of Tailsko, her being Leopold's girlfriend is a big no-no. Leopold is supposed to have a human girlfriend instead.
  9. The police arrests any characters that are against Leopold, the time of which usually takes place after a battle that Leopold wins. Who is he, a boss that has police for his own security? We know he's the main character but some of his opponents do not even deserve prison.
    • If they didn't commit any crimes.
  10. Leopold can easily track down someone's house without even knowing the address.
    • Does Leopold have superpowers or something?
  11. Leopold has very little knowledge on how to use his computer.
    • Except in CDiFan237's AGK Series where Leopold actually knows how to use floppy disks, he is able to fix his PC cables himself and is able to know different Windows Operating Systems.
  12. Leopold is very gullible and gets easily manipulated by email messages, especially from people that he doesn't even recognize.
  13. Leopold uses old hardware such as floppy disks etc.
  14. Leopold does hardcore violent stuff such as pooping on teachers desk or injecting marijuana on a kids school bathroom.⚠
    • This may not educate children younger than 13, this may lead to an immature fan base - viewer discretion is advised.
  15. Leopold can get a job without even having to turn in an application, resume, or attend an interview. (No wonder why he always gets fired; they don't bother doing any background checks on him.)
  16. Leopold's videos get hate comments/negative reviews on his videos.
  17. Usage of "Inspired by" when referencing other people's parodies.
    • If you inspire too many storylines that are not yours, this may count as a cliché.
  18. Leopold has interests, likes and dislikes similar to the parodist.
    • "Coincidence? I think NOT!!!"
  19. Parodists tend to mention Leopold's praise towards sausage eggs or Unreal Tournament in the intro. What happened to something as simple as just mentioning the character?
  20. Ripping off the same character sprites to make a "new" character.
  21. Parodists are making rip-offs of other AGK videos by re-using the same existing ideas over and over without giving credit to the original parodist who made the idea, going as far as using the same exact lines throughout the episode, and this may lead to unoriginality, copycatting, rip-off storylines, criticism and even hate.
  22. Most characters from preschool/children's shows are always antagonists.
    • This includes, but not limited to, Calliou, Dora, and Barney (Which have been nonsensical hate targets by immature GoAnimate/Vyond users and some parodists).
    • This will lead to a toxic hatebase of that particular show.
    • There are some examples, such as the Titans from Teen Titans GO! and Ben from Ben 10 (2016 reboot) in Adrenaline21's AGK Series.
  23. Leopold tries to cook something for himself but he fails miserably.
    • Maybe Leopold should take cooking lessons at school.
  24. Your Object OCs can be in the series, like Atekuro95's series as an example.
  25. Leopold's computer runs on a outdated Operation System like Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7.
  26. Parodists use Cansin13's sprite sheets (his character sprites, body parts, face expressions etc).
    • Not everyone will likely go back to the classic style or use other facial expressions so easily.
  27. Downfall characters like Hitler and Fegelein appear in the intro, but rarely make appearances in the show itself.
