I've gotta tell you: what ruins a skit for me is when there is a COMPLETELY random and unnecessary cameo appearance in the skit.

All naruto characters and...wait what? What is Wakka doing in there?

I suppose it wouldn't be so bad if any of those people could incorporate the random characters in a creative or funny way; it however, has never been done (not in a nice flowy manner, anyway).

I haven't seen many skits in my life, as many cons as i've been to... So I was wondering, how common is a harry potter/naruto analogy done? i thought it might be funny...

To my knowledge, it has yet to be done notably. I haven't seen it personally, either way.

+"If you were gay"
+Yatta
+yaoi based skits
+Haruhi dancing skits

and dancing skits in gereral seem to be getting popular. Some are really well done. Like the Fruits Basket one at AnimeNEXT this year. Simply Amazing.

I agree. All character should have a real purpose for being in a skit.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this but the Sparta references are getting old with skits. I swear, if I hear another one again...

Those got old even before cosplay skits got to it. Everyone and their mother has done a 300 parody.

At Otakon this year, there were two skits which at some point started going "THIS... IS..." and the audience was groaning and booing before they even were finished with that much...

...And then the line was cut there by someone interrupting with something like "Cut it out! No more 300 references!"

So both 300 references AND mocking of 300 references is now officially overdone, I think.

Very right... just doing random things, with random music. With tons of inside jokes. *shudder*
Randomness is not funny, it's confusing. Using the word "random" in a skit name or during a skit does not make it funny or cool.

... now i'm about to go on a rant -_-"

...yes that was me -_-" Our first attempt at a masquerade.. Just some light humour. Thanks! I'm glad you like it.

--edit--

Also something that seems to be pretty baddly overdone. "So-and-so-anime-character's day off/during their spare time/when no one's watching". Sometimes they're not so bad....but Ive seen more of them then I can shake a stick at.

Koi, you hit it on the spot for me. Here are some skits that REALLY bother the
hell out of me and just get old.
  • "If you were gay"
  • "The internet is for porn". - I went to a con one time and it was my first time seeing skits, and gosh, I already got sick of the Internet Porn thing and I was surprised that you guys hated them too.
  • Random Characters. - I can see if you put like, for example, Ryuk and Ichigo Kurosaki in a skit. Why? They're both Shinigami's. But why would you put Inuyasha and KH Riku singing "Tarzan" in a skit? That really got to me.
  • Naruto based Yaoi Skits - Sorry, but they get too old.
  • Over-Done Yaoi Skits - I'm getting sick of NarutoXSasuke and AxelXRoxas.
  • Musicals - Unless they are funny and unique.
  • Old Band Songs - Backstreet boys, N Sync? Boring.
  • Dance competitions - They are getting old but the only one I liked was a Death Note one. Not because I like Death Note, but because it was actually funny.
  • Naruto and KH skits - Don't bash me, but I think its overdone. Whoah! I got a keyblade and I can open stuff with it! Believe it because I'm a Ninja! I don't see any 'unique' ones anymore.

Ooh, I hit two bad spots on your list(with my future skit.). But, I do agree. I'm a huge KH fan, but all the skits I've seen look so... the same. The only thing I can really see that's overdone is random crossovers. Or yaoi skits. And yeah.

Aaaw, I'm sorry. Don't let my stupid little list ruin your skit, I bet it will turn out great, since you have knowledge of whats overdone or not. Good luck on your skit!
