• 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:Undercover brother 001 8614.jpg

Based on a Web Animation.

We start with a black U.S. Army general who, in the beginning, looks like a good, respectable possibility for a black president. No scandals in his past at all.

But The Chessmaster The Man and his evil organization get to the general and leave him brainwashed. Right when he's supposed to be announcing his candidacy, he gives up his dream of politics to run a chain of fried chicken restaurants. It's evil fried chicken, too, but we don't learn that immediately.

The good secret organization, The BROTHERHOOD, needs to stop this before it goes any farther. But to do that, they must call the great Blaxploitation hero Undercover Brother. Undercover Brother is stuck in The Seventies, but he knows kung fu.

Undercover Brother is asked to infiltrate the evil Organization undercover. He is given a watch that sprays hot sauce to fight off the potential evil of mayonnaise on white bread. But, once on assignment, he meets an incredibly beautiful blonde who appears to be trying to befriend him, and things go bad...

Tropes used in Undercover Brother include:


  You see what's happening, don't you?! How we're being corrupted by their hipper-than-thou fashion and cool slang you can't help but use?!

    • The Man as well.
  • Rant-Inducing Slight: Conspiracy Brother is prone to these at the mention of words so innocuous as "hello".
  • Rasputinian Death: Mr. Feather is dropped out of a helicopter over the ocean. Just before falling hundreds of feet (the impact alone of which would've killed him instantly) a great white shark leaps out of the water, and eats him.
  • Reverse Mole: White She Devil, when The Man's guards catch the BROTHERHOOD infiltrators in the Communications Room.
  • Schmuck Bait: The Big Red Button labeled "Atomic Core".

 Conspiracy Brother: "Atomic co-ray", huh? Let's see what this so-called "button" does...

  • Secret Test: Sista Girl pointing a gun at Undercover Brother to test his courage.
  • Self-Destruct Mechanism: The Atomic Core on The Man's island fortress.
  • The Seventies: Undercover Brother's character is based on this era.
  • Sex Face Turn: See High Heel Face Turn above.
  • Shoe Phone: Two pairs of Tricked-Out Shoes and a Gadget Watch.
  • Shout Out: Multiple examples.
  • Sickening Crunch: Subverted. Undercover Brother is about to stomp a Mook who's lying on the ground. We see him stomp and hear a horrible crunching sound as he twists his foot but we don't actually see the stomp connect. Just when you think he's smashed the Mook's head in, the camera looks down and we see that he actually smashed a bag of potato chips.
  • The Smart Guy: Smart Brother, naturally.
  • So Beautiful It's a Curse: White She Devil's lament.
  • The Stoner: Conspiracy Brother. It's strongly hinted that his paranoia is due to his drug use.
  • Storming the Castle
  • Strawman Political: Parodied like everything else. Conspiracy Brother snaps "What have the Republicans ever done for black people?!" Smart Brother then lists a large number of things Republicans have done for black people, and seems ready to continue, only for Conspiracy brother to interrupt with "Fine, fine, list two things Republicans have done for black people lately!"
  • Take the Wheel: The title character has Sistah Girl do this during the golf cart chase.
  • Tap on the Head: Undercover Brother to two Mooks, Sistah Girl and White She Devil to a group of Mooks in the Communications Room.
  • Token White: Lance, who was hired because of affirmative action. Later White She Devil joins as well.
    • Much to Conspiracy Brother's chagrin.
    • Conspiracy Brother does warm up to Lance, figuring all the white dude needs is some weed to mellow out with him.
  • Trap Door
  • Tricked-Out Shoes: UB had two pairs — one takes you up, one sends data.
  • What Does This Button Do?: It's the Self-Destruct Mechanism for the "atomic co-ray".
  • Where Da White Women At?: Penelope Snow, AKA White She-Devil, aka Black Man's Kryptonite. The other guys at the BROTHERHOOD ask UCB whether his "first time" with her was really that good.
    • Were her nipples pink?
    • Of course Lance was doing it, too.
  • Wig, Dress, Accent: Undercover Brother, as the Rastafarian golf caddy and Anton Jackson.
