• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Rock and Rule 3478.jpg
The war was over . . . The only survivors were street animals - dogs, cats and rats. From them, a new race of mutants evolved. That was a long time ago. Mok, a legendary super rocker, has retired to Ohmtown. There his computers work at deciphering an ancient code which would unlock a doorway between this world and another dimension. Obssessed with his dark experiment, Mok himself searches for the last crucial component: a very special voice.

In this gloriously insane animated film from Canada (The first entirely produced within that country), a dark magician aging rock star's wicked plan to summon a grotesque demon are thwarted by Furries who sing early 80's rock music about The Power of Love.

Yes, that is the actual plot.

Compare Jem and Kidd Video.

Tropes used in Rock and Rule include:
  • After the End - There's some jazz in the prologue about how a disaster killed off all the humans and now extremely anthropomorphic animals have taken our place as detailed in the quote above. Because why the hell not? It has absolutely no bearing on the plot at all, just go with it.
  • Air Vent Passageway: Cindy Schlepper escapes this way every Saturday night, apparently, which is convenient for Angel.
  • All Drummers Are Animals: Averted by Dizzy, The Smart Guy and the drummer of the Five-Man Band.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Angel for Omar, probably, though she's not exactly a saint herself.
  • All Part of the Show: After the demon is sent back and Mok vanishes, Mylar states this, and claims that Mok's just backstage relaxing.
  • Anti-Love Song - Born to Raise Hell ("You're so pretty / Pretty useless!")
  • Badass Damsel: Angel doesn't put up with being kidnapped and refuses to cooperate with Mokk so much that he finally has her drugged and wired to a computer just to make her sing.
  • Bald of Evil: Mok. Any hair he has is really a wig.
  • Band Toon - Technically.
  • Either Big Beautiful Woman or Brawn Hilda: Cindy. In-universe, likely the former.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Omar's Crazy Awesome attempt at rescuing Angel.
  • Big No: Omar's reaction to the sight of an Angel impersonator snuggling up to Mokk.
  • The "B" Grade: Mok's motivation — no, really.

 Mok: My last concert was not completely sold out!


 Angel: "You-you're totally crazy!"

Mok: (completely unfazed): "Thank you. Shall we see them off?"


 Mok: Mes assistantes stupide.

Sleazy: I just love it when he speaks French.
