Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Immodestly billed as "the work which becomes [a] new genre itself", Cowboy Bebop (originally broadcast between April 1998 and March 1999 in Japan) is a Space Western/Film Noir anime series consisting of 26 episodes (and one movie) that eventually became one of the most popular, acclaimed, and influential anime series in history — and justifying the braggadocio behind that tagline.In the Used Future of the late 21st century, humanity has spread across the Solar System using "Hyperspace Gates" after a horrific accident devastated Earth—and wherever humanity goes, so goes its criminal element. To compensate for the increase in jurisdiction, The Space Police re-instate the bounty system of the Wild West: If a bounty hunter catches a bounty alive and delivers them to the cops, the cops pay out whatever the bounty is worth.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })The series focuses on the misadventures of a ragtag group of five struggling to make a living as bounty hunters in the space-age frontier: Jet Black, a bounty hunter, former police officer, and owner of the spaceship Bebop; his partner Spike Spiegel, a martial artist on the run from a bloody past; Femme Fatale and rival bounty hunter Faye Valentine, who is both more and somehow less than she appears; demented teen genius hacker girl Edward Wong Hau Pepelu "Ed" Tivrusky IV; and Ein, a genetically-engineered Welsh Corgi "data dog".The Bebop's crew faces dangerous criminals, occasional starvation, a particularly disgusting refrigerator, and their own Dark and Troubled Pasts over the course of the series. The show partially defines itself by the thematic choice to give everything a rich backstory yet explain almost nothing in full. The stories told by the show concern themselves more with the problems of the present; in many cases, history is only implied, which leaves the rest to the viewer's imagination.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })Another signature trait of Cowboy Bebop is its music: Yoko Kanno composed a soundtrack made up of almost entirely of jazz music. Some of her work on this show even defies categorization. She and her band, The Seatbelts, improvised some tracks to finished footage at the moment of recording. Bebop's soundtrack exists not as a mere afterthought, but as the backbone to nearly everything else about the series; numerous scenes eschew dialogue entirely and rely on music to carry the experience.[adult swim] chose Bebop as the first anime to air on the block; the show debuted on the same night of the network's premiere in August 2001. Bebop aired regularly on the network for well over a decade after its American TV debut, which made it one of the network's longest-running shows. Toonami still has the rights to air the show, but if you cannot watch it on TV, you will have little trouble finding it elsewhere: Bandai released the show on DVD several times (including a remastered "Remix" version), and Funimation later rescued the license so it could re-release the show on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital video.As the tagline suggests, Bebop frequently evokes both Westerns and Film Noir, though the single biggest influence on the look and feel of the series comes from '80s and early '90s Heroic Bloodshed action movies directed by John Woo (e.g. A Better Tomorrow and The Killer). Lupin III also serves as a visible influence, as the main trio comes off like a futuristic version of Lupin, Jigen, and Fujiko. Underneath the sci-fi and action flick surface lies an overall plot line influenced mainly by the most Japanese of all Japanese cinema, the Yakuza picture — a relatively unknown genre in the West.A movie adaptation of the series, Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' on Heaven's Door (simply Cowboy Bebop: The Movie outside of Japan) was released in 2001. The movie's story takes place during the canonical events of the series; Word of God says it fits in between episodes 22 and 23 of the series. You can find the film on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital platforms with relative ease, as Sony Pictures never let it go out of print or fall into licensing hell.Bebop also received two video game adaptations: a Star Fox-esque PlayStation game and a beat-em-up PlayStation 2 game (Serenade of Remembrance) based on the series. Though the latter, at least, was meant to, they never saw release outside of Japan, so if you want to find the scene from Cowboy BeBop at His Computer, you will have to import the PS2 game or watch a playthrough.A live-action adaptation has sat in Development Hell for years. Keanu Reeves once said that he would love to play the role of Spike Spiegel (at the very least, Reeves called himself a fan of the series), but because of the long wait for the adaptation to enter production, he has since decided to decline the role if it ever presents itself (mainly due to age).In 2017, the adaptation has been reworked from film to a TV series co-produced by Sunrise. In 2018, it was announced that Netflix has picked up the series for one 10-episode season. See Cowboy Bebop (2020) for tropes on that series.Bebop creator Shinichiro Watanabe later created a spiritual successor in Samurai Champloo, then parodied his own work in Space Dandy."Bang..."

The Man in Front of the Man: In "Sympathy for the Devil", the Bebop crew tries to track down an old bounty head called Zebra, who seems to be masquerading as a paralyzed man living with a young boy. Only after searching the memories of one of Zebra's dying friends do the crew find that Zebra is really disabled and is in the clutches of the boy, who, due to a freak hyperspace gateway incident, doesn't age and is much older than he looks.

 Cowboy Bebop / int_1282bf4f
comment
No Celebrities Were Harmed: "Yuri Kellerman", the crazy Conspiracy Theorist from "Jamming with Edward", is clearly a play on the self-proclaimed "psychic" (read: con-man) Uri Geller. The Teddy Bear Bomber is clearly an expy of Ted Kaczynski, although he's portrayed as more of a Well-Intentioned Extremist (and also a Technical Pacifist). The bounty head in "Heavy Metal Queen" bears more than a passing resemblance to Woody Allen. To drive the point home, the family restaurant where Faye finds him is named Woody's.

Human Shield: Attempted by a mook in Spike's first showdown with Vicious. He holds Faye in front of him and holds a gun to her head, threatening to shoot if Spike doesn't surrender. Spike, ever the Combat Pragmatist, simply shoots the mook in the head. Then later, another of Vicious' mooks, actually does die protecting him this way in "Jupiter Jazz (Part II)".

End of an Age
 Cowboy Bebop / int_1bc2e445
comment
End of an Age: The show gives the sense that the day of the short-lived Wild West IN SPACE! has already peaked, and the frontier era brought about by rapid colonization of the solar system is coming to a close. In keeping with the meta sensibilities of the series, this goes hand-in-hand with the show's various nods to late-period Westerns like The Wild Bunch and Ride the High Country, not to mention the window of time when those movies were made, i.e. The '70s: after the fall of Hollywood's old studio system, before the rise of the current blockbuster era.

The Movie
 Cowboy Bebop / int_1bf94a24
comment
"Ballad of Fallen Angels" and "The Real Folk Blues" deal specifically with Spike's past on Mars, betraying his best friend and leaving behind the love of his life. "Knocking On Heaven's Door" takes a more surreal approach to this, as a microcosm of the series with Vincent serving as a Composite Character/Foil to both Spike and Vicious. Episodes that end with a physical showdown like "Pierrot Le Fou" or the much lighter "Cowboy Funk" also tend to focus more heavily on Spike.

Scannable Man: During his introductory episode, Whitney Hagas Matsumoto mentions to Faye that they're fairly standard among the citizens who live on that moon. Except he's lying, and he's a former prisoner and wanted man himself. In the following session, we see that all the escaped prisoners have similar tattoos — on the side of their necks, rather than the back. Presumably different prison systems have different protocol for it.

Vicious rarely smiles, but given his personality, it can't be anything but this when he does. In his first appearance, the only time he comes close to smiling is when he and Spike are in back to back in a fight for their lives in a flashback.

Crapsack World
 Cowboy Bebop / int_21d70919
comment
Crapsack World: There are a fair share of them, but most can only be gathered by what little we actually see of them. Despite their qualities, life continues on without (or perhaps despite) any major hindrances. Earth survived a lunar armageddon, yet people have no problem living with a certain degree of satisfaction in the ruins of society. Callisto is cold, industrial, and mainly devoid of any female population. It's mostly a blue-collar, hardscrabble town. Ganymede seems pretty normal for a settlement that lives on a floating city on an ocean. Venus is pretty normal despite the helium and the occasional case of Venus Sickness. Tijuana in the Asteroid Belt is a bit on the rural side. Io is largely under development, consisting of small settlements and wide open plains and deserts. Titan seems to be a Single-Biome Planet, consisting almost entirely of desert with no discernible settlements. Tharsis City on Mars seems to have become the main thriving center for humanity, with no major social or technological problems. Despite the presence of the Syndicate, the Bebop calls it home.

Mohs Scale of Science Fiction Hardness
 Cowboy Bebop / int_22fed3a1
comment
Mohs Scale of Science Fiction Hardness: Remarkably hard in terms of space travel, fitting quite easily under One Big Lie, aside from having been much further ahead than we currently are at the same point in time (the Astral Gate Accident was in 2021). The only completely impossible technology in the series is the existence of jump gates for Faster-Than-Light Travel, but rather than being mounted on individual spaceships, they're big, complicated machines that vehicles have to travel through one at a time, and at this point only allow travel within the solar system. The Bebop only has gravity on its spinning ring section, and the only planets the characters travel to are the existing ones within our solar system. Moreover, while it might seem like a totally fictional concept, the idea of terraforming planets is actually based on real science. That being said, the show is willing to go a little softer when it comes to biology and genetic engineering, with Biological Immortality and Nigh-Invulnerability as a result of exposure to a meteor shard and a devolution virus which turns humans into apes. There's also the theoretically more plausible but still sketchy harmless cryogenic freezing and hyperintelligent data dogs. Basically Nanomachines and Playing with Syringes can do almost anything. Genetic Engineering Is the New Nuke indeed.

In Medias Res: The film is reportedly set between episodes 22 and 23 of the series, and seems to be aimed at "people who want more Cowboy Bebop," and not at "people who want to see what this Cowboy Bebop is all about." The plot isn't hard to follow, but we get very little backstory for the world and the characters.

Failure Is the Only Option
 Cowboy Bebop / int_260926c3
comment
Failure Is the Only Option: The crew will never catch "the big bounty" and solve their money troubles. They can only hope to get a few of the small ones. In the case of Chessmaster Hex, they do manage to put themselves in a situation where they could have become rich. They decide to give up any monetary award so that the by-then senile old man will be left alone and Ed can finish her game. When Ed finally takes up bounty hunting, if completely by accident, she not only wrecks the other bounty hunter (and vigilante wanting revenge), but she's also convinced by the shroom grower that the mushrooms are worth much more than his own bounty (that, or she was just hungry. It's Ed.) The shrooms turn out to have been fake, anyway. For a change of pace, In "Cowboy Funk", Faye successfully handed Teddy Bomber over to the police, earning 3 million woolongs.

Scary Black Man
 Cowboy Bebop / int_3036294e
comment
Scary Black Man: Played with. Abdul Hakim fits the trope to a tee: deep-voiced, extremely strong, gigantic, and violent (although before his Magic Plastic Surgery he was a Dark-Skinned Blonde, so make of that what you will). Udai Taxim is a sociopathic mob enforcer and fairly chilling, but not necessarily because he's black. He wears glasses, and is notably thin and slightly built, much smaller than Jet and about even with most of his fellow jailbreakees — all of whom badly underestimate him, since despite the difference in size, Taxim can still hold off Jet, mechanical arm and all. And then it turns out that he didn't carry quite as much of the blame for Jet's predicament as Jet always thought, since Fad had sold him out before they even arrived on the scene.

Beard of Sorrow: Vincent Volaju, the main antagonist of Knockin' on Heaven's Door, used to be clean shaven and have short hair, judging by the picture taken when he was still in the military. However, after the events that lead to his Sanity Slippage, he grew a beard and apparently stopped cutting, or even combing, his hair.

Hollywood Healing: Mostly for Spike. It's not uncommon for him to be bandaged from head to toe in one episode and without a scratch in the next. Somewhat justified in that it is the future and replacement body parts are available, alongside other advanced medical technology, and it isn't clear whether Spike is a normal human. Of course, given the episodic nature of the series, there is no confirmation of just how much time passes between any episodes. Days, weeks, months... That's a lot of time to heal.

Bulk Buy Only: It's feast or famine aboard the Bebop. In one episode, Ed supplies the crew with a bottomless bag of mushrooms, which were supposed to be psychedelic mushrooms worth a fortune to the right buyer but turn out to be ordinary shiitakes. Runs in the family, it turns out: as a Call-Back in her farewell episode, Ed's father pays the bounty Ed herself posted with eggs. In both cases, the crew ends up eating the same thing prepared multiple ways for days on end, ending up well and truly sick of them in the process.

Face Death with Dignity: A less serious example in "Wild Horses", where it seems that Spike and his Swordfish will be unwillingly burning up in Earth's atmosphere in short time; Spike coolly lights a stoge and tells Jet to help himself to his secret whiskey behind the fridge. A dramatic example in "Jupiter Jazz, Part II" when Gren asks Spike to put him in his ship and send him off to the planet he once fought on before he dies.

Eyes Are Unbreakable: Jet has a big scar that goes right through his right eye, though the eyeball itself is perfectly fine. He does have a piece of metal bolted to his face next to the eye though. Averted with Spike, who reveals in the final episode that he lost one of his eyes years ago and uses an artificial one now. If you look at him after the reveal, you can see his eyes are different shades of brown.

Schizo Tech: Characters who own starships capable of traveling faster than light through hyperspace gates will call each other on computers and phones that seem to come straight out of the early 90s. In planetary colonies, space-capable personal aircraft share parking lots with internal-combustion cars. Characters don augmented-reality goggles while they shoot small arms that exist today. Ship-mounted beam weapons do exist, but they are rare and seldom-used even then, with most ship-to-ship firefights happening with autocannons and missiles.

Faye says, basically, that Humans Are Bastards and the only way to get ahead is to scam other people before they can scam you.

Curb-Stomp Battle: The series is full of them, really, considering it's a World of Badass. Ed's dad hands both Spike and Jet (who was armed) their blue-clad behinds. This is possibly the only fight in the series where friggin' Spike is completely outclassed by a perfectly ordinary human. One wonders how different the ending would have been if Vicious had managed to run into Spike just a few seconds before the fight with Ed's dad started... Yeah, he's that badass. Abdul Hakim beats up a group of mooks pretty easily.

Honor Before Reason: They can protest their own mercenary ways as much as they'd like, but Spike and Jet are heroes; they often let several bounties and other lucrative opportunities get away to do the right thing. A good example is Spike, a self-proclaimed dog-hater, saving Ein and giving up the bounty (and taking on the dog as a member of the crew afterwards) - making it a literal case of petting the dog.

"Speak Like A Child", a comedic example. Jet actually says as much as much in the preview for the previous episode. The tape is worthless to everyone but its intended recipient, all Spike and Jet's efforts to get a Betamax player come to nothing because they accidentally grab a VHS player, and the episode's main problem eventually resolves itself without intervention from the cast (a proper Betamax player is sent to the Bebop in the same way the tape was). However, because of who the package's recipient is and what its contents are, the ending is very somber.

Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Spike and Jet. Don't let that exterior fool you — they put Honor Before Reason several times. Faye too, though she shows it less often. Really, with the exclusion of Ein (a hyper-intelligent dog) and Ed (who is just weird), everyone on the Bebop puts on a massive show about only being interested in money and yet all of them tend to do the right thing in the end.

Alternate Aesop Interpretation
 Cowboy Bebop / int_48f282a3
comment
Alternate Aesop Interpretation: Played with In-Universe in "Toys In The Attic." Each member of the crew monologues a different Aesop to the same story, although they all end up being Spoof Aesops in one way or another. Jet believes it's divine justice — for what exactly, he's not entirely clear, but if something bad happens to you, then surely you must have done something to deserve it. Faye says, basically, that Humans Are Bastards and the only way to get ahead is to scam other people before they can scam you. It's eat or be eaten, everyone's out for themselves first, and there's nothing else to be learned. Of course, she's also the first to break down and beg for pity when it's her own neck on the line. Ed keeps it simple and ironic ("If you see a stranger, follow him!"), which doesn't seem relevant but has certainly worked out for her, up to and including stopping the "mystery space creature" once and for all by eating it in her sleep. Spike's lesson, Played for Comedy, is the most applicable to their current situation, and by extension, completely useless elsewhere. Although you could certainly make a case for this simply being an extension of Spike's philosophy, seen elsewhere in the series, that you have to take things for what they are and react in the moment ("Be like water"), as opposed to trying to fit everything into a preconceived set of beliefs about how the world is supposed to work.

Leaning on the Fourth Wall: In "Cowboy Funk", rival bounty hunter Andy has a highly noticeable western-themed Leitmotif that precedes his every arrival. By the halfway point of the episode, Andy's encounters with Spike has traumatized and infuriated Spike to the point that he interrupts the villain during an encounter because someone whistling in the background sounded like the Leitmotif starting up.

Pretty Little Headshots: When Spike confronts Wen at the end of "Sympathy for the Devil", he shoots him right into the center of his forehead with a bullet that will cause him to start aging again. The bullet wound is simply a small bloodless hole. The bullet alone should've been enough to kill him.

Screamer Trailer: Twice: Parodied in the preview for horror parody "Toys in the Attic" is played entirely deadpan with an over-the-top narrator reading copy as if it's for a horror movie from The '50s, as the characters scream in terror/agony in the background. Played horrifyingly straight in the preview for "Pierrot Le Fou", which is just Mad Pierrot laughing maniacally over dead silence. It works very well, especially coming after the relatively light episode that was "Wild Horses."

Downer Ending
 Cowboy Bebop / int_4e3d253b
comment
Downer Ending: May not apply depending on how you interpret the ending, but if you subscribe to the belief that Spike died at the end, then Faye's story is rather depressing. She spends the series trying to regain her memories, only to find that there's nothing left for her from the past and that she needs to move on with the friends she currently has. And then two of them leave with little more than a message saying goodbye and one of them runs off to his death because HE is unable to let go of the past himself. The fact that the last shot we see of her in the series is her sobbing alone puts it home pretty well.

Tired of Running: Many of the bounty heads go out this way, sacrificing their own lives to ensure their actions don't cause any more harm to others. Katrina Solensan in the very first session, for example, kills Asimov herself when she finally comes to believe that there's no happy ending waiting for the two of them after what they've done. This is one interpretation of the series finale: rather than forgetting the past, it's about, as Jet says in the final preview, facing up to it, meeting your fate — whether to accept it, or, perhaps, to fight it.

 Cowboy Bebop / int_5979acea
comment
Fragile Speedster: There's a quick reference late in the series to Spike's Swordfish having once been a racing craft before he used it. This comes in handy during the movie where Spike is able to drag three military-grade fighters into a protracted chase across a pretty large distance instead of dog-fighting them outright, while using the environment to get them off his back. It's still rendered an un-flyable mess after getting hit a few times. Also doubles as a Glass Cannon with the giant screw-off plasma cannon mounted in front that can take out just about anything in one shot.

Thrown Out the Airlock: Spike does this to the contaminated refrigerator in "Toys in the Attic". Spike does this to himself in "Heavy Metal Queen". It's the only way his plan would work, trust us. He threatens to throw Faye out the airlock for annoying him in one episode.

When V.T. opens the Heavy Metal Queen's airlock to rescue Spike, the air rushes out for at least thirty seconds and yet there's still air left when he gets in. Of course, he also survives being spaced that long without air, so don't expect a high degree of realism here.

Dissonant Serenity: Space Land, a Disneyland-esque park which the Mad Pierrot chooses for his extremely one-sided duel to the death with Spike. Done beautifully in "Ballad of Fallen Angels", as Spike is hurled out of a church window just after having dropped a grenade at Vicious's feet. He remembers his past with Julia over the lilting strains of "Green Bird". "Ganymede Elegy" has the folksy acoustic guitar song "Elm" play during the climactic chase scene.

Not Distracted by the Sexy: Faye's Stripperific yellow outfit draws astoundingly little attention at times; no one seems to treat her any differently than any other attractive woman even when she's wearing two-thirds less clothing than everyone else around. On the other hand, she does get a lot of Hello, Nurse! reactions whenever she walks into a Bad-Guy Bar, so...

Names to Run Away from Really Fast: There are several examples that are played straight, i.e. Vincent Volaju, but a humorous take on this trope occurs in "Cowboy Funk", where the name and very presence of one-shot character Andy strikes fear into the most hardened criminals and bounty hunters, like Spike and the Teddy Bomber.

Wild Mass Guessing: Many people believe that episode 11, "Toys in the Attic", was All Just a Dream because episode 12 immediately begins with Spike vaulting awake due to the insufferable humidity on the ship. There's no actual evidence or further mention to support it. During the episode preview for episode 12, Edward lampshaded that everyone had died except her in that episode, but then Faye quickly subverts it by protesting.

comment
Lemony Narrator: All the characters get in on this in the fourth wall-shredding next-episode previews, the frequently stonefaced Jet in particular. Jet basically says that nobody but "musty old guys" are going to want to bother to watch "Black Dog Serenade", which focuses on his past and finally explains how he lost the arm. He also says that "Speak Like A Child" basically has no plot which, of course, is the point but "at first glance, it's interesting." Made funnier if you've ever seen the English dub of Outlaw Star, since Beau Billingslea also did the voiceovers for that series. Ed narrates the preview for "Jupiter Jazz (Part I)" as if the whole rest of the crew died from their injuries in "Toys in the Attic", saying she's the lead of a new series, until Spike and Faye burst in to protest that "there really is a next episode!" The preview for "Wild Horses" has Ein bark the preview, with Spike pretending to understand him until, to Spike's disbelief, Ein actually speaks the title at the end The Three Old Men do the preview for "Mushroom Samba", but don't actually know anything about the episode and just bicker with each other before running out of time. Cowboy Andy ("Just call me Musashi!") does a mock preview for "Brain Scratch", over Spike's heated protests. Inverted with the preview for "Hard Luck Woman", which features a lot of typically Ed-centric goofy Comic Relief scenes, while Ed hums an oddly bittersweet little ditty over top of them. Because it's Ed's last episode before she and Ein leave the Bebop for good, and Faye's B-plot in the episode ends with her wandering through the ruins of her past life, only to find there's nothing left. Played for Drama in the preview for "The Real Folk Blues (Part II)," where Spike is trying to be his usual casual self, but Faye is repeating a kind of monotone Survival Mantra in the background, while Jet is rambling morosely to himself about how knowing Spike helped him, and neither of them seem to be able to hear Spike talking — which just adds further fuel to the fire over whether or not the final episode ends with Spike's death.

Cassette Futurism: It has a very 1970s aesthetic, including computer files that look like long-playing records. This is completely appropriate since since the show IS set in the '70s — the 2070s.

Faye gets three episodes detailing her forgotten past, each more tear-jerking than the last: "My Funny Valentine", "Speak Like A Child", and "Hard Luck Woman" (despite sharing the latter with Ed). "Jupiter Jazz" (both parts) is also very much her and Gren's story, more so than the rest of the main cast, despite the presence of Vicious. In each of the aforementioned episodes other than "Hard Luck Woman", and also in her introduction in "Honky Tonk Women", Faye ends up running away from the Bebop and by extension, closeness to others, her looming past, responsibility, etc.

Macross Missile Massacre: Happens a few times. Faye suffers one during her debut episode, and takes advantage of it by sending one of the missiles back to her attacker. Played with in "Gateway Shuffle," the villains launch a biological weapon at Ganymede. Just before Spike can line up a shot on the weapon, it splits into three, and he misses one. Faye, who is still in a position to take a shot at the last missile, does so only for the missile to split into dozens of projectiles before her eyes.

Hacked by a Pirate: Radical Edward tends to do this. Although Ed's more into smiley faces and other silliness. On the villainous side of the coin, the pirates Hewie, Dewie, and Louie hack into people's ships by physically linking and uploading a computer virus to shut down their systems using a series of harpoon guns.

The decoders in "Bohemian Rhapsody" crack into the hyperspace gates in a matter of seconds. You'd think such important infrastructure would be more secure. Justified: The decoders were (unknowingly) working for the guy who helped build them and therefore knew just how to crack them.

Five-Man Band
 Cowboy Bebop / int_92587498
comment
Five-Man Band: Mostly averted. More than many shows, there seems to be a deliberate effort made to show how people are rarely as simple as their basic archetypes. While the crew does occasionally function superficially as a loose and fairly dysfunctional band, the exact roles tend to fluctuate as each character gets their time in the spotlight, with the structure of the cast having more in common with a Slice of Life comedy/drama than a more conventional action or procedural show. See Ensemble Cast, Four Temperament/Philosophy Ensemble, Rotating Protagonist, and Power Trio/Three Plus Two for a better sense of the team's usual dynamics.

Continuous Decompression
 Cowboy Bebop / int_93350bf1
comment
Continuous Decompression: When V.T. opens the Heavy Metal Queen's airlock to rescue Spike, the air rushes out for at least thirty seconds and yet there's still air left when he gets in. Of course, he also survives being spaced that long without air, so don't expect a high degree of realism here. Spike does this again when he has to throw the old fridge out of the airlock in "Toys in the Attic"; he nearly gets sucked out, but again is just fine.

Villain of Another Story: The Van of the Red Dragon syndicate are the overlords of one of the worst crime syndicates in the solar system, but they never directly threaten the main characters and frankly seem apathetic to their existence for nearly the entire series. Only after Vicious makes his move to assassinate and oust them do they send agents after Spike in a belated effort to tie up loose ends.

"Green Bird" in Session 5, "Ballad of Fallen Angels", after Spike is blown out of a stained-glass window following a brutal fight with Vicious, seeing his life flash before his eyes as he falls. Offset by a comedic counterpoint when Spike wakes up as a Bandage Mummy, being nursed back to health and sung to — but by Faye, rather than Julia. Spike tells her she sings off-key, Faye hits him with a pillow hard enough to fill the room with a cloud of feathers, then storms off in a huff. End episode.

Riddle for the Ages: In the final episode, does Spike die at the end or does he just pass out because he's worn out and wounded after the fight? Either answer completely changes the meaning of the ending. Watanabe actually encourages people to speculate about it, though he personally prefers the idea that Spike simply passes out.

There Are No Therapists: The poor crew. A ex-gangster whose former-best-friend-now-sworn-enemy is actively out to kill him, an ex-cop whose past still creeps up on him, a compulsive gambler and con artist who doesn't know her own past or real name, and Ed (whose father just sort of forgot her somewhere, though she doesn't mind)... somebody please pass this crew some anti-depressants. At least Ein's probably well-adjusted, despite being an escaped science experiment with a genius-level intellect. But then, he is a dog.

False Friend: Faye is notorious for abandoning the Bebop on a whim, only to return later when she needs money or help.

Foreshadowing
 Cowboy Bebop / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: In the very first episode, Laughing Bull tells Spike he'll be "targeted by a woman, and then… death". Spike mentions he's been "killed once before" by a woman, but he doesn't elaborate. We later learn that he's talking about the incident that led him to his current lot in life; he was "killed" in the sense that he had to leave his old life behind under bad circumstances, and a woman played a large part in whatever happened. Later still, the same woman turns out to be a major factor in his actual, non-metaphorical death, too. In "Gateway Shuffle," Faye panics when she sees the translucent rockets on the other side of hyperspace still coming at them. Spike and Jet laugh at her, and Jet asks her if she didn't pay attention in high-school physics class, because general hyperspace knowledge is apparently common. This gets paid off when we learn that Faye was in suspended animation for about fifty years. She wasn't daydreaming in physics class, rather, those advances in science hadn't been made when she was in high-school. "Jupiter Jazz" shows us that Vicious is dissatisfied with the leadership of the Red Dragon, setting up his coup later on. In "Brain Scratch," it's heavily foreshadowed that Londes doesn't exist well before the characters learn of it.

Eye Scream: "You will shed tears of scarlet." In the first episode, we follow a criminal attempting to smuggle a massive amount of "Bloody Eye", a drug that's applied, well, ocularly. At the end of the episode, the bounty attempts to take more Bloody Eye directly from the vial, without the applicator that usually sprays the drug into the eye. He can only do this by crushing the vial and its shards blind him.

Mood Whiplash: Both subverted and played straight for effect.Part of what makes the series work so well is its control over mood and tone, shifting easily between hot-blooded action to heartrending sorrow to goofy comedy with remarkable grace, often many times over the course of a single episode.

Soundtrack Dissonance: Intentionally employed with the cheery Space Warriors jingle playing over a scene of dead and wounded diners. Sometimes, you don't even need visuals. Also, the fight between Spike and Pierrot in a theme park. The merry fanfare gets more distorted and horrifying the more you and Spike realize he's completely outmatched and about to die. Beautifully employed here when Vicious throws Spike out of a church window.

Chekhov's Skill: Spike teaches Rocco to do a judo-like throw near the beginning of the episode he appears in. At the end, he does it to one of the villains and beams with approval and then gets shot and dies. Ed shows that she can remotely steer ships via satellite when she wrecks the police cruiser. Guess how she directs the Bebop to come back for her at the end of the episode? A minor one from "Honky Tonk Woman", where Spike demonstrates his ability to swallow and regurgitate objects at will with a cigarette which later comes in useful for preventing Faye from getting her hands on the poker chip.

 Cowboy Bebop / int_b149d59f

Off Bridge, onto Vehicle: All the time. It's an action series, after all. Twice in "Stray Dog Strut": the first time, in an extremely straight example has Ein and Spike jump off a bridge onto a fishing barge — only for Ein to jump off the barge and knock both him and Spike into the water, leaving Hakim behind. Then, during the climax of the episode, jumps out of a moving car, off a raised highway over water, forcing Spike to divert course to catch him on top of his ship. In "Boogie Woogie Feng Shui", Jet and Meifa jump off the top of a stone wall and land on a passing bus to avoid the two pursuing gunmen.

Take That!: During its original airing in Japan, a number of episodes were deemed un-airable due to recent school violence. It was questionable whether the series would extend beyond episode 13. In response to this, an episode entitled "Session 13.5: Mish-Mash Blues" was made featuring scenes from the unairable episodes with the voice actors discussing the show. Many people don't know that Cowboy Bebop actually has a Japanese Hip-Hop song called "Recover the Sky of Day," which reflects the somber situation of society at the time, among its list of ED songs. Cold, macho Callisto is an obvious dig at North Korea.

Improbable Aiming Skills: Faye is a good enough shot to blow out the tires of a mobster's car. Twice. From the same episode, a nameless mook involved in Vicious's coup manages to shoot off the shackles holding Vicious to the wall of his cell, in the middle of a smoke-filled room during a firefight, without even scratching Vicious himself. The series would have been a lot shorter if that guy had been around in any of the other firefights between Spike and the Red Dragon...

Slasher Smile: Vicious rarely smiles, but given his personality, it can't be anything but this when he does. In his first appearance, the only time he comes close to smiling is when he and Spike are in back to back in a fight for their lives in a flashback. Pirate/hacker George from "Wild Horses" gets in a couple of good ones when he takes over the Bebop with his computer virus. Tongpu has one of these so madly twisted you can hear his teeth grinding.

Conspicuous CG: The sunstone device (Luo-Pan) from "Boogie Woogie Feng Shui" and the space-warehouse in "Wild Horses", along with Gate and water effects in various episodes. invoked It's used to surprisingly good effect in "Pierrot Le Fou" where many scenes of Mad Pierrot (including his creepy origin and balloonish flying) contain unsettling amounts of CG. It creates a disturbing, Uncanny Valley effect, as though Pierrot doesn't conform to the laws of reality.

Udai Taxim is a sociopathic mob enforcer and fairly chilling, but not necessarily because he's black. He wears glasses, and is notably thin and slightly built, much smaller than Jet and about even with most of his fellow jailbreakees — all of whom badly underestimate him, since despite the difference in size, Taxim can still hold off Jet, mechanical arm and all. And then it turns out that he didn't carry quite as much of the blame for Jet's predicament as Jet always thought, since Fad had sold him out before they even arrived on the scene.

Otaku: Spike and Jet enlist the services of an old-school video otaku in an attempt to watch an old tape. He goes into fits of ecstasy upon seeing that it's Betamax, and nearly has a heart attack when Spike tries to fix an issue by kicking the player and destroying it entirely. In the original Adult Swim airing of "Jamming With Edward", Faye mentions that the hacker was probably a "chubby otaku". Every airing afterwards, it was changed to something along the lines of "Nerdy, pasty little geek with a bad skin disorder." note As of the 9/19/10 airing, the line's been changed back to the original "chubby otaku".

Played for Drama in the preview for "The Real Folk Blues (Part II)," where Spike is trying to be his usual casual self, but Faye is repeating a kind of monotone Survival Mantra in the background, while Jet is rambling morosely to himself about how knowing Spike helped him, and neither of them seem to be able to hear Spike talking — which just adds further fuel to the fire over whether or not the final episode ends with Spike's death.

When Ed finally takes up bounty hunting, if completely by accident, she not only wrecks the other bounty hunter (and vigilante wanting revenge), but she's also convinced by the shroom grower that the mushrooms are worth much more than his own bounty (that, or she was just hungry. It's Ed.) The shrooms turn out to have been fake, anyway.

Does Not Like Shoes: Ed is never seen wearing them, and apparently hadn't for a significant time prior to her appearance as she has proven herself skilled at typing with her toes. The anime goes even further to demonstrate exactly how uncomfortable Edward is with footwear. She at one point decided to wear socks outside, but was completely unable to keep her footing and immediately discarded them.

Dream Within a Dream: Within a dream, within a dream... Dreams, memory, and the past are all intricately wrapped together in the narrative of the series. Part of the reason Spike spends so much time asleep is because he's lost the ability to tell when he's asleep or when he's dreaming — as well as whether he's alive in the moment, whether these things are happening to him now, or if he's simply remembering the past. This turns out to be something he shares with Julia, as well as Vincent in The Movie.

Rotating Protagonist
 Cowboy Bebop / int_d959d421
comment
Rotating Protagonist: The series begins and ends on Spike and he's pretty much the face of the show, but it's an Ensemble Cast at its core, with each main cast member other than Ein getting spotlight episodes dealing with their inability to let go of the past — or in Ed's case, her remarkable ability to do just that. The early dynamic of Spike as The Hero and Jet and Faye as his sidekicks quickly falls by the wayside, with some episodes barely hardly featuring Spike at all. "Ballad of Fallen Angels" and "The Real Folk Blues" deal specifically with Spike's past on Mars, betraying his best friend and leaving behind the love of his life. "Knocking On Heaven's Door" takes a more surreal approach to this, as a microcosm of the series with Vincent serving as a Composite Character/Foil to both Spike and Vicious. Episodes that end with a physical showdown like "Pierrot Le Fou" or the much lighter "Cowboy Funk" also tend to focus more heavily on Spike. Faye gets three episodes detailing her forgotten past, each more tear-jerking than the last: "My Funny Valentine", "Speak Like A Child", and "Hard Luck Woman" (despite sharing the latter with Ed). "Jupiter Jazz" (both parts) is also very much her and Gren's story, more so than the rest of the main cast, despite the presence of Vicious. In each of the aforementioned episodes other than "Hard Luck Woman", and also in her introduction in "Honky Tonk Women", Faye ends up running away from the Bebop and by extension, closeness to others, her looming past, responsibility, etc. Jet doesn't get his first spotlight episode until after Ed joins the crew, starting with a return trip to his home satellite in "Ganymede Elegy", later followed by his past as a cop in "Black Dog Serenade" and "Boogie Woogie Feng Shui" in the back half of the season. Jet-centric episodes tend to be melancholy noir-ish detective stories. Ed episodes "Jamming With Edward" (her introduction), "Mushroom Samba", and "Hard Luck Woman" are, like most of her screentime, almost pure Comic Relief. Even Chessmaster Hex of "Bohemian Rhapsody" is a more lighthearted episode villain than most of the others. "Toys In The Attic" makes a particular point of rotating through each protagonist in turn, giving each one a chance to narrate their worldview... all while being hunted by a Blob Monster that might or might not be an alien in an episode that is ambiguously implied to be All Just a Dream.

Writers Cannot Do Math: More than likely a case of the artists/writers not being overly familiar with the imperial system, but Abdul Hakim's mugshot says he's 6'2", and for this to be true, everyone else would have to be in the 4-5 foot range. Hakim's head nearly touches the ceiling in many shots, he has to duck to get through doors, he towers over the noticeably lanky Spike, etc.

Translation Convention
 Cowboy Bebop / int_e11b003d
comment
Translation Convention: The Bebop-verse can be seen as highly multilingual, though the language preferred by the protagonists is most likely Chinese. The evidence: The Bebop can frequently be seen anchoring in a Martian Chinatown. In one scene, 'No Smoking' signs can be seen in various languages. Out of all those, Jet picks the one in Chinese to point his finger on. Faye is from Singapore. Jet can be seen reading and writing e-mails in Chinese. Spike used to work for the Triads. The universal currency is the Chinese-sounding "Woolong".

Spike dreams he's walking up a staircase that never ends. He receives some sage advice from a frog, which he of course ignores and keeps walking. Back in the real world, he's simply standing in place, lifting his legs up and down but not actually moving... until he wakes up on the roof of the Bebop. Probably not conducive to escaping his whole All Just a Dream mindset.

comment
Weapon of Choice: The show likes its guns. Spike is seen using a variety of weapons across the series, but his one constant (other than his Jeet Kune Do skills) is his customized Jericho 941. Jet and Faye, similarly, are almost exclusively armed with their one gun each (respectively a P99 and a Glock 30). Faye also seems to have a thing for automatic weapons: she's introduced pulling a submachine gun out of a paper bag, and her tiny ship is armed with dual gatling guns. Jet's old partner Fad favors his trusty revolver. Udai Taxim and Vincent Volaju like their knives. A Blood Knight who refuses to leave his war behind, Vicious wields a katana... and a lot of strategically-placed high explosives.

Mushroom Samba
 Cowboy Bebop / int_f7d4f121
comment
Mushroom Samba: The episode is the Trope Namer. Ed, assigned to search up some food for the starving, stranded crew, stumbles onto a bounty who smuggles mushrooms. After seeing the effect they have on Ein (he hops around like a wind-up toy), she tests them out on the rest of the crew, each of whom has their own reactions, all very much in character, and, if you're paying attention, symbolic of their character arcs: Faye hallucinates shrinking down to tiny size, a torrent of water falling down on her and filling up the bathroom, and fish swirling all around her as she tries desperately to swim. She's trapped in a world she doesn't understand, full of people she can't relate to, trying to fight the current. She wakes up on the floor, having eaten a bunch of toilet paper. Jet has what seems to be a very invigorating conversation with his bonsai trees where he realizes he's actually much happier than he thinks he is except he keeps forgetting who he is and what he's saying — he keeps getting in his own way when it comes to what he wants. He wakes up having applied/eaten a bunch of lipstick. Spike dreams he's walking up a staircase that never ends. He receives some sage advice from a frog, which he of course ignores and keeps walking. Back in the real world, he's simply standing in place, lifting his legs up and down but not actually moving... until he wakes up on the roof of the Bebop. Probably not conducive to escaping his whole All Just a Dream mindset.

Shoo Out the Clowns
 Cowboy Bebop / int_f97b5d33
comment
Shoo Out the Clowns: Ed and Ein spend pretty much all of "Jupiter Jazz" back on the ship, and are seldom seen in the more harrowing episodes, such as "Pierrot Le Fou". Space horror parody episode "Toys in the Attic" reverses this, with Ed being the second-to-last character featured and the only one unaffected by the monster because she fell asleep. In episode 23, "Brain Scratch", the body of Jobim, one of the Three Old Men, is laying in the rubble by the television tower. Happens gradually in the build-up to the final two episodes — Ed and Ein leave the ship after one final set of wacky antics with Ed's father and the only moment of semi-seriousness for Ed in the whole series, then we come across the male host of Big Shot (which has just been canceled) having a nice moment with his mother. After that point, shit goes down.

I Was Just Passing Through: Spike saving Faye from Vicious in episode 5 (he probably meant it, but he still shot the man holding her hostage first instead of Vicious). Jet goes chasing after Faye in episode 12 "for the money in the safe she emptied" (she later reveals it only had 20,000 woolongs in it, about a tenth of what the crew makes on the small fries they do catch). Faye completes the circle by doing this with Spike in episode 18.

Titled After the Song: "Stray Dog Strut": "Stray Cat Strut" by the Stray Cats "Honky Tonk Women" by The Rolling Stones "Ballad of Fallen Angels": "Fallen Angels" by Aerosmith "Sympathy For The Devil" by The Rolling Stones "Jamming With Edward": Not a song, but rather an album featuring 3 members of The Rolling Stones (singer Mick Jagger, bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts), plus Ry Cooder and Nicky Hopkinsnote The "Edward" to which the title refers comes from a song Hopkins composed for psychedelic band Quicksilver Messenger Service, called "Edward, the Mad Shirt Grinder" "Toys in the Attic" by Aerosmith "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen "My Funny Valentine" by Rogers and Hart (also where Faye's surname was picked from) "Black Dog Serenade": "Black Dog Blues" by pre-World War II blues artist Blind Blake. "Speak Like A Child" by Herbie Hancock "Wild Horses" by The Rolling Stones "Pierrot Le Fou": Named after a post-modernist French film from 1964 of the same name. "Hard Luck Woman" by KISS "The Real Folk Blues" by Muddy Waters (the lyrics of the ending song, also called "The Real Folk Blues", references this.) "Knocking on Heaven's Door" by Bob Dylan (copyright problems prevented this from being used as the title of the movie when it was released stateside) "You're Gonna Carry That Weight": a reference to the second-last song on the Abbey Road album by The Beatles.

Theme Naming
 Cowboy Bebop / int_fd94c4ac
comment
Theme Naming: Not as noticeable as others, but: Spike - 5 letters; Faye - 4 letters; Jet - 3; Ed - 2; and the dog Ein (Eins being the German word for one). It even denotes how important they are plotwise. Ed and Ein are mostly just comic relief characters who leave the crew before the finale even begins. Jet is important in plenty of dramatic episodes, but his plotline is basically over before the show starts, most of his episodes involve resolution with various people he's known and in the finale he's put out of commission pretty early in the story. Faye has the second biggest plot line involving learning her past and she gets to fight off Triad members with Julia. And Spike is the main character with the finale being all about him. Also, the three old men—Antonio, Carlos, and Jobim—are named after Antonio Carlos "Tom" Jobim, the guy who wrote Girl From Ipanema. Three Space Pirates named George, Harman, and Ruth, after a famous baseball player better known as "Babe." There's also Punch and Judy, the hosts of the bounty showcase program "Big Shot", who get their names from a famous puppet duo. There's a trio of bounty heads that show up briefly in one episode named Huey, Dewey, and Louie, undoubtedly a reference to the Disney characters. The main characters' spaceships are the Swordfish, the Redtail, and the Hammerhead; all named after marine life. The Bebop is a remodeled fishing ship, Spike fights like water, and Spike's favorite food appears to be lobster. The episodes are usually titled after songs or otherwise reference music. See Titled After the Song below for detailed explanations.

Ridiculous Future Inflation
 Cowboy Bebop / int_fdbb6993
comment
Ridiculous Future Inflation: From a western standpoint, the money sums mentioned in the series seem ridiculously inflated (including Jet not being particularly angry after Faye makes off with 20,000 woolongs from the Bebop's safe in "Jupiter Jazz", or Spike repeatedly calling a two and a half million bounty in the very first episode a "small fry" who's not worth his time). However, the same sums probably seem more reasonable to Japanese viewers, since the Woolong's value was patterned on the Yen, making it uncertain if this can be considered an example of the trope.

Brick Joke: In "Cowboy Funk", Faye and Jet fail to believe Spike's recounting of his run-in with Andy, saying the "cowboy character is completely unbelievable" but "if it were a samurai, then it might work". Guess what Andy decides to become at the end of the episode. Added to the dub, where Faye claims to be 'delicate' in "Sympathy for the Devil". In "Waltz for Venus", she arrives to bail out Spike and fires all over the place at the villains. In "Heavy Metal Queen", Faye has to remove some high explosives from a wrecked ship. When told to be delicate with it, she replies "I'm not the delicate type". In the beginning scene of "Toys in the Attic", Spike takes a bite of a kebab and makes a face because it tastes awful. When he's suiting up to find the blob-monster pest, he spears a piece of meat on his sword and takes a bite out of it... and makes a face again. Two episodes after "Big Shot" is cancelled, Faye is in an airport and sees a familiar-looking black man talking to his mother. He's obviously the former host of "Big Shot", except he's dressed differently and no longer talking in a hokey fake accent. It's easy to miss unless you're paying close attention.

Perpetual Poverty: Either circumstances conspire to prevent capture of the bounty or there's so much collateral damage that, after all is said and done, they break even. It would be easier to name the episodes in which the crew does have money in which they don't. Hence the title of Yoko Kanno's slow acoustic guitar theme Forever Broke, played when the crew of the Bebop find themselves deep in the red and, more often than not, starving.
