Half-Life Sound Effects refer to iconic sounds and voice lines from the Half-Life video game series which have been used in numerous video remixes and parodies, often using footage from real life.


Half-Life was released on November 19th, 1998.[1] One of the earliest known videos to parody Half-Life's sound effects was posted on June 5th, 2011 by YouTuber Maverick Jey-Kidding. That day, they uploaded the video "Half-Real-Life bunnyhop discovered," which dubbed Half-Life sound effects over real-life footage and received more than 32,000 views in a little over seven years (shown below).

The trend grew much more popular in the spring and summer of 2019.
