* ''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.

* AB Groupe's ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' movie dubs (made for European markets unlike the TV series, these do ''not'' use the Canadian cast), also known as the [[FanNickname Big Green Dub]][[note]] (named for Piccolo, who they call "Big Green" for some reason)[[/note]] are so hilariously awful, they ''have'' to be heard to be believed. For example, most of the characters, particularly villains, are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGnCSGkLC-g voiced by some old guy]] who sounds like an unholy combination of Creator/AdamWest and OrsonWelles. It also led to such memetic quotes such as "Come, magic cloud"[[note]] Ever wondered where ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' got that joke from?[[/note]] and "Let that child alone". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whnuJReGbso Here's]] an excerpt from the end of ''Lord Slug''. (Yes, Goku did just yell Kamehameha when using a Spirit Bomb.)

Added DiffLines:

%%* ''Anime/Berserk2016'' shows that it's possible to turn a critically praised and popular manga like ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' into a fascinatingly awful show if you just give it to the right--or rather, wrong--people. Firstly it is produced in an awkward hybrid of traditional 2D and [[CelShading cel-shaded]] AllCGICartoon. The 3D has ConspicuousCG character models, choppy animation, and garishly bad color, textures, and shading, while the 2D is made by people who can't draw and suffers from both OffModel and LimitedAnimation in addition to the characters looking little like their 3D selves.

* For all the anticipation, the general consensus of ''Anime/BlazblueAlterMemory'' is that it's this, due to the generally low-quality animation and lacklustre fight scenes - it's an anime [[VideoGame/{{Blazblue}} based on a fighting game]], it has no excuse for boring fight scenes.

* Pretty much any {{Hentai}} anime to ever receive an English dub falls into this, by virtue of the fact that most professional voice actors want to have porn on their resume as much as [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] wants to review it (or at least don't want to use their real/stage name when doing that). This means that the only people available to do the voices are either amateur voice actors, actual porn stars, or in at least one case, ''the Japanese Dub's actors''. The most infamous examples are ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GU3Gg696yrM Bible Black]]'', ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tR9vnrlsQ3c A Time to Screw]]'', and ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLmsVBgZiak Sextra Credit]]''.

* ''Diatron-5'' (a.k.a. ''Animation/SpaceTransformers''), a Korea-produced anime, has OffModel animation, a hero who sounds like both a 25-and-8-year-old (if you're going to leave his [[NonDubbedGrunts grunts undubbed]], it might help if his original voice matches the dub voice...), the grandest case of YouFailBiologyForever (Ivy, the "world's most talented girl", has a ''goddamn galaxy'' in her body, which is what the heroes have to be injected into... and no blood either, since they didn't drown after injection), a plot that starts off incoherent and gets worse from there... Gods. The clincher is the voice acting--not only does everyone sound bored out of their minds, half of the cast don't sound like native English speakers (the other half are British). And that's not counting the DVD cover, which has artwork (and character designs) ripped straight from ''Gundam'' and possibly ''AKIRA''. Despite all this, it still manages to be entertaining--after all, what other anime claims that the immune system of a cybernetically-enhanced girl is comprised of tribal, bumbling "White Soldiers"?

* ''Anime/TransformersEnergon''. The original 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''. Meaning you got such awesome things as characters outlines not moving along with them. Even when the animation was finished, the 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. Creating a situation where you had '''''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.
