Most super villains use a “Rent-a-Henchman” service, through which they can order a number of nameless thugs to help in their schemes. The Joker is banned from using this service, due to his tendency to kill his own men.
Okay but a genghis khan musical movie tho think of the possibilities:
Dancing henchmen, now with actual personalities
Hero having a introduction song thats basically a polished up version of what his life is like: it’s very james bond like and all that stuff
Villain having a very typically villainous introduction song and hero interrupting him.
It basically being a running gag that agent always interrupts villains songs
Fighting but it basically being dancing
Villain debating how to kill hero w/ his henchmen and them being like “Listen dude. It’s blatantly obvious you have a crush on him now go and get ready cause he’ll be there in a minute” and dressing him up in some very nice suit, cologne, maybe polish up his nose lmao, all in a dance number while villain’s protesting
Hero shows up and tries very hard not to notice how good villain looks suddenly (not that he doesn’t look good normally)
(Ex-)wife and villain having a big dance number where wife says villain has grown soft, villain trying to prove he’s absolutely not gone soft because of some stupid secret agent and is still very menacing (lmao)
The henchmen having their whole own song without villain, hero or anyone else. Like in the cafetaria, talking about whatever, then hero storming into the cafetaria with villain following him, fighting each other while the henchmen watch, singing about their thoughts on the whole ‘our boss is in love with his arch nemesis’ thing
THE LAB COATS HAVING AN ACTUAL PART IN ALL THIS I WANT SCIENTISTS AND HENCHMEN INTERACTING
Cute dancing and singing children!!!! I love them.
Hero seems to almost exclusively take on missions where villain plays some sort of part, according to his boss. They eventually believe him when he says he just hates the dude very much and wants to take him down but he just never seems to succeed, he doesn’t understand how he seems to escape every time either.
The agency actually capturing villain in some way, agent helping him escape by providing just the tools he needs
Having to pretend he’s upset over villain escaping like ‘Why don’t we have any competent agents around here? Who put the key on a hook right next to the cell door?? Hmm??’ fucking nerd
Henchmen with actual personalities I wanna know what the guy who goes ooh in the background is really like
The martini glass making an appearance
Hero making shitty nose puns and villain getting back at him by making fun of the martini glass
Flirting without even noticing it themselves with henchmen rolling their eyes in the background
You know that labcoated guy in the background who sits at the computer and also goed ‘ooh’? He needs a part lmao
60s music!!! lots and lots of different 60s music
Villain and agent physically fighting over something (a remote, a key, etc.) and them almost kissing
Villain deciding this needs to end now because he’ll lose everything he has if it doesn’t
Him and a team of scientists constructing the laser, the scientists very carefully asking him whether this is a good idea. Someone says that he could always just shoot him if he wanted hero dead, to which he answers that hero deserves something special.
Hero being heartbroken when he’s placed on the table, discovering that he really can’t get out of it this time, scared for his life.
A duet with villain desperately trying to ignore hero trying to interrupt him while he’s singing about him wanting hero to get it on with nobody else but him, and when he’s about to push the button, the buzzer powers down the machine
So not only ANGRY duets, also sad duets
Wife asking whether he’s killed the agent yet when the children have gone to bed, and giving him an ultimatum when she hears he hasn’t
Villain having a reprise of his introduction song: his song was about how evil he was and how he was gonna take over the world yada yada, the reprise is about him hating how he suddenly has goodness in him, and how he hopes he’ll be able to do it the next day so everything can go back to normal. Hero’s part is about how he hoped villain had some goodness in him but apparently he doesn’t, because he’s going to kill him, but he still hopes he won’t.
Next day villain’s semi-convinced himself that he’ll be able to do it. He wants to tell hero how he feels but that he knows a relationship between them wouldn’t work out, and he DOES tell him. Hero’s going to die anyway, right?
The same events happening as in the video, but with a bigger dance number because come on it’s a musical, the henchmen are gonna do something more than just bopping along in the background
Hero reassuring villain that it can work out, and they’ll figure it out together.
Wife having observed everything that happened and shooting hero after dramatically appearing from behind a pillar, then escaping
Hero lying in villains arms, singing a kind of bittersweet goodbye song and villain being like ‘Shut the fuck up I’m not going to let you die’
Hero survives, of course, and is moved to a bed in the hospital wing to rest (not before kissing villain passionately, of course)
Wife coming to visit him in the hospital wing to finish the job, him singing about what his life was really like and how he glamorized it to feel better about himself and the image he should uphold as an agent, and how he loves villain and wants him to be happy, doing this to distract wife (but all of it being tru lmao) .Wife singing about how she never had the chance to pursue world domination because villain would amass their empire and she had to take care of the kids, also singing about her tragic backstory and that she worked so much harder for villains love than hero and he doesn’t deserve it.
Him using the oppurtunity to push a silent alarm button that summons henchmen to the hospital wing. Wife proceeding to fight off the henchmen and escaping through the window
A very Serious Conversation about how thinks will work out, about what wife said to hero, etc.
Villain and hero dreaming about their future together, which turns into a nice dance ending number, complete with a scorned ex-wife as a nice cliffhanger at the end.
Which means happy duets
ALL THE DUETS
Henchmen and scientists with bigger parts holy shit give it to me
Reasons why Barbie as The Princess and the Pauper is a seriously underappreciated animated movie:
–both the princess and the pauper are in situations that teach self-sacrifice for the good of others
–the plot is complex and has multiple angles that all work together really well
–the glittery, feminine blonde princess is a science nerd
–the princess and the pauper are instant BFFs
–the songs are cute and catchy, but are also important to the storyline
–the love stories are realistic; the princess is in love with her best friend/tutor who she’s known for years, and the pauper falls in love with the king from a neighboring country because of their shared interests and beliefs
–the villain is a flamboyant and obnoxious character who is so hilarious all by himself that you will honestly laugh out loud more than once
–there’s a street cat that barks
–the street cat that barks falls in love with the dainty, sassy feline from the castle
–the princess and the pauper never go anywhere without their pets, and the pets return the favor by helping them whenever they need it
–did I mention the songs?
–the villain’s henchmen are named Nick and Nack
–the king (the pauper’s love interest) likes disguises for no apparent reason
–the tutor (the princess’ love interest) saves the day, like, three times without expecting a reward
–both the king and the tutor become bros in a single bonding moment as they simultaneously chase down the villain that tried to hurt their women
–all the main characters are interesting
–not only does the king refuse to believe the pauper is anything but good despite the evidence that she’s a criminal, but he also patiently waits for her for months while she’s living her dream of traveling the world, and then takes her back the moment she shows up at his front door because he’s faithful to her
–the princess breaks royal tradition by marrying the tutor, but also finds a way to secure the wealth of her kingdom first so that her people will be happy
–there’s a double wedding
–the pauper wears a choker with her wedding dress at the double wedding
–literally everything is girly; even the castle is pink
–the overall point of the whole movie is that you are special and beautiful, and that as long as you stay positive and support each other, everyone will get their happy ending
BONUS: there are specially-animated outtakes during the credits
boy i hate when villains kill their own guys, word’s gonna get around and you won’t get any henchmen applications in the future. give me bad guys who revel in how evil they are together, raze a village to the ground, but will set aside day on their calendar because it’s Morgog’s (in Decaptations) bday and they wanna see her utterly destroy all 239 candles with her cool flame breath
Keep your henchmen loyal by equipping them well, rewarding them fairly, giving them Labor Day off, crediting their artwork, and not always pushing them up front with the ten foot pole as trap detectors. (From the AD&D Dungeons Masters Guide, TSR, 1979. Unsigned; may be David Sutherland’s.)

If you can succeed in taking home any guy of his choosing, your debt will be wiped clear. Then he points at Jungkook.
