* FloatingLimbs: Worms' hands ever since the third generation and onward. Furthermore, they disappear when not in use. ''Worms 3D'' in particular played with this in the cut-scenes where worms would be knocked away by something but their limbs would stay, moving around as if still attached.

* ArtificialStupidity: It's easy to make an AI that can hit the target every time. It's ''hard'' to make one that can convincingly ''miss''. ** The AI will also occasionally make some ''very'' strange choices in the usage of their weapons (e.g. Bazooka tunneling instead of hitting the obvious target nearby, or using a bazooka to shoot someone right next to them). In some installments, they cannot use the variety of weapons.

* ArtificialStupidity: It's easy to make an AI [=AI=] that can hit the target every time. It's ''hard'' to make one that can convincingly ''miss''. ** The AI [=AI=] in ''Worms 2'', ''Armageddon'' and ''World Party'' does insane efforts to never hurt a teammate, even if by doing so they kill the only enemy worm left that has only 1 health point. Given the ImprobableAimingSkills with the Bazooka of higher [=AI=] levels, and the final Deathmatch level in Worms 2 (Two worms of yours vs 15 Level 5 ones), this ''needs'' [[AIBreaker to be exploited to win]] (Though sometimes they forget about it and they Fire Punch you and any unlucky teammate). With enough practice, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2r7P_8cpr0 no amount of enemy worms will be enough to beat you]]. They also never take grenade bounce into account - if it does not blow up on your worm when it hits the ground, they will not do that shot. Similarly, when setting up dynamite, they merely walk away instead of jumping away - as a result, they always get caught in the blast. ** The [=AI=] in the mobile game ''Worms 3'' does incredibly stupid things like setting up dynamite next to an enemy worm... and stay still, no further from the dynamite than its target. More often than not, they kill themselves and the opposing worm does not die. ** The [=AI=] will also occasionally make some ''very'' strange choices in the usage of their weapons (e.g. Bazooka tunneling instead of hitting the obvious target nearby, or using a bazooka to shoot someone right next to them). In some installments, they cannot use the variety of weapons.

** The Stupid AI in ''Reloaded'' deliberately invokes this trope. The improved smarter AIs will sometimes do stupid things as well like getting caught in their own explosions, or maybe they're making a [[SuicideAttack sacrifice]] for some [[ArtificialBrilliance higher strategic value]]. It's hard to tell.

added obvious beta
Added DiffLines:
** The AI in the DS version of ''Worms: Open Warfare'' probably takes the cake for doing the stupidest things in a Worms game, even on the highest difficulty. Not surprising since the game is an ObviousBeta. Some problems include attempting to fire Bazookas through obstacles and damaging itself; walking off cliffs and losing turns; and whiffing Fire Punches.

Added DiffLines:
* ObviousBeta: The UsefulNotes/NintendoDS version of ''Worms: Open Warfare'' has several problems that point to it being a rushed job: simplistic menus, buggy worm and weapon physics (e.g. worms can force themselves under another when walking uphill, grenades/cluster bombs never come to rest, numerous problems with the ninja rope), graphical and audio glitches, and a [[ArtificialStupidity broken AI]].
