* ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' moves hard away from the RealRobotGenre and straight into the SuperRobotGenre. The entire setting is turned into a WorldOfHam, complete with a TournamentArc and a HotBlooded shonen protagonist. The attacks are laughably over-the-top, the acting is HamAndCheese top to bottom, and the animation is often stiff. Yet altogether, the show wouldn't even be half as entertaining as it is if it weren't so completely ridiculous.

* ''Anime/TransformersEnergon''. The original Japanese version, ''Transformers Superlink'', was already weird, slow, and confusing, but merely mediocre. The dub took it right off the rails by [[InconsistentDub constantly mixing up characters, lines, and voices]], and seemingly being unable to decide whether or not they'd edit Primus out of the dub (some episodes he's there, in others his lines are edited out and mention of him is replaced with "the core"). This is on top of the fact that the dub often got ''incomplete animation'', leading to such awkward moments as characters' outlines not moving along with them. Even when the animation was finished, the [[ConspicuousCG terrible CGI]] often limited itself to [[DullSurprise two facial expressions]] (it would usually switch back to traditional animation if something more impressive needed to be rendered), and "running" consisted of robots sliding across the floor while clumsily swinging their arms. Add to this some of the most bizarre toy shoe-horning in history (there was often no reason for the transformers to actually ''transform'', so they'd end up transforming to fly through space, sometimes creating situations with '''''cars driving in space'''''.) and you've got an anime that was terrible to sit through on the air, but makes awesome lampoon fodder provided you've got some friends and popcorn with you.

** If you can believe it, there are some people on the internet who insist that the anime works if taken ''completely seriously''. It is not known if they are sincere or trolling, but the mere idea of that is hilarious in itself.

* The studio Knack Productions produced many of these (although some of their shows, such as the ''Literature/TheLittlePrince'' anime, were successful). The most infamous example by far is ''Anime/ChargemanKen'', which really must be seen to be believed. It would have been long forgotten had it not been for one person uploading the DVD re-release of it on NicoNicoDouga, and the nonsensical {{narm}} has undergone extreme {{memetic mutation}} since. Two episodes in particular are infamous: one where Ken's sister obsesses over a football-star whose every line has become a CatchPhrase[=/=]meme who begs Ken to show him his "Charging-Go" (episode 4), and another where Ken uses a kidnapped scientist as a human bomb to get rid of some aliens (episode 35).

When Creator/DiscotekMedia licensed it, they used [[OurProductSucks its awfulness as a selling point]]

* ''Anime/MarsOfDestruction'', a short tie in to an [[AdaptationDisplacement obscure dating game]], universally has some of the lowest ratings on almost any major anime site (Website/AnimeNewsNetwork, Website/MyAnimeList, etc). Despite this, many will deem it to be "so bad it's good" with its obvious {{shout out}}s to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', horribly stiff animation, virtually no conceivable plot, and bad dialogue. People have given it Perfect Scores and written reviews of how much they enjoyed it.

** Do not forget the BigBad: he was given the dub name Price {{Zardoz}}, which leads to a lot of {{narm}}.

* ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato'' gets this in the first season for its use of cliched plots, lack of action in the space battles[[note]]the forward gun turrets ''[[StockFootage always]]'' rotate just a hair to the right before firing[[/note]], for getting NewPowersAsThePlotDemands, for Desslock's [[ChewingTheScenery on screen ham]] and for his mooks' hilariously forced chant every time he appears[[note]]"[[RuleOfThree Deeeeesslock Desslock Desslock]], Deeeeesslock Desslock Desslock..." now repeat every time Desslock is on or near his throne.[[/note]]

*** From Malaysia, we also have the rare [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wG84efH4sw "Speedy" dub]], named after the company that produced it. Not only is the voice acting ''extremely'' corny, but the translations are incredibly ludicrous, with lines such as "Black human beings dislike the sound of rubbing glass probably the soundwave of the whistle, which a human being blows might echoessummly irritating the ears of the Namek people, the nerve cut any other phase." And almost all of them (including the aforementioned one) are delivered [[MotorMouth like the voice actors were high on caffeine.]] As an added bonus, the music distorts from time to time because of the dub's incredibly poor audio transferring methods, giving the impression that the soundtrack itself pretty much gave up on this dub. On paper, it sounds SoBadItsHorrible. When you listen to it, however, it's one gigantic riot-fest.
