Watching the new April Fool's toon, I couldn't help but noticed how oddly familiar it seemed. I know I've seen cartoons like the one this toon is spoofing, but I couldn't recall any names. Someone in the discussion thread for this toon listed Loonatics and the 2003 TMNT, but I'm not familiar with those.

So, of what cartoons does Xeriouxly Forxe remind you?

I'm also with those saying it's like the new TMNT, but I also think it could be a parody of cartoons that just won't give up and just add an "x" to their name to seem cool, like Yugioh GX or Sonic X.

It spoofs nothing specific, as Loonatics Unleashed and TMNT are both examples of the "Xtreme" genre, which (as the toon says) was popular in the '90s. It was seen a lot in comics--the character Lobo made his popularity there, Supreman had long hair and briefly turned blue and electrical, and so on. I haven't been able to find a page for the general practice of this concept, however.

Does this TV Tropes page work? Darker and Edgier

That works very well.

The first thing that comes to my mind is Batman Beyond. That X-Men cartoon where they are in school is sort of similar as well.

Snow White is about to get "Xeriously Forxe"ed now. Brett Ratner is doing a new version and he's focusing on making it "edgy". Now the dwarves are criminals and there is a dragon for some reason. He says he's trying to take it back to the Brothers Grimm version. I'd rather see the Brothers Chaps version.
