Bob The Angry Flower is a webcomic that is ... Exactly What It Says on the Tin. And so much more.

The main characters are:

  • Bob, a flower who is angry, with pastimes including mad science, real science, making everyone happy, torturing people, robots and ray guns. And genocide.
  • Freddie the Flying Fetus alternates between exceedingly happy and having a lot of unfortunate things happen to him.
  • Stumpy, a humanoid tree stump, is arguably the Only Sane Man in the comic, except for when real people make an appearance.

Recurring fictional characters include Plantae, a Super Villain with plant powers and Remora Joe who has two fish attached to his face. Lovebot is almost a Spin-Off in his own right. Bob once made a robot designed to love and set him loose For Science!. He's still out there.

Non-fictional characters are mostly one-offs, with the exception of Kofi Annan, who has accompanied Bob on monster-killing missions, evaded ill-defined pursuit and it gets weirder.

Tropes used in Bob the Angry Flower include:


 I was surprised to learn from the opening credits that the name of the movie was Battle: Los Angeles. Not Battle: L.A. or even Battle: Los Angeles, but just Battle Los Angeles. In a way, just typing it out now, it's brilliant. Because the movie is all about battling Los Angeles.



Not in a good or entertaining way, mind you, just as battling Los Angeles would not be a fun or enjoyable experience. No, Battling Los Angeles would be a lot of running around, taking cover, wondering what the fuck was going on and then eventually getting to shoot at some clunky terminators with blobs for heads. But, after all, isn't that what we should expect from a battle with Los Angeles?

 Freddy: You built a robot programmed to love and then kicked him out? WHY?

Bob: Data, mostly.

 Bob: So once I hit on the idea of working from the base monster template it was a simple process to generate an organism fully capable of fixing my printer.

  • Mood Whiplash: Jolly Starfish.
  • Negative Continuity: Bob has repeatedly raised vast evil armies and reduced the earth to ashes, or fed every living thing into the mouths of Lovecraftian horrors, complaining all the while how people just don't have his vision. It never sticks.
  • No Name Given: Subverted by The Nameless Ones, who openly admit that their name is The Nameless Ones.
  • No Party Like a Donner Party: Bob can live on sunlight, which means he can be a massive Jerkass to the starving survivors of a plane crash.
  • The Power of Love: Lovebot runs on this trope.
  • Ray Gun: Bob has all sorts, from a peace ray that Time-Grabbed Jesus tries to steal, to a seahorse ray and even an unexplained Donut Ray that appears to be meant to show all his enemies in one go that he could have killed them but chose to give them donuts instead.
    • Freddie appears to have a ray gun capable of destroying Plot, when the storyline insists his attempt to save the day will fail.
  • Serious Business: Beware the Font Police!
  • Shaped Like Itself: Bob gives a presentation explaining the key subatomic particles involved in the large hadron collider experiment.

 Quarks: which are quarks. Examples: Quarks.

 Bob: Good your majesty, I wish not to be a dick about this but no fucking way.

 Hamsterfall: As I will it, Hamsters Fall!
