** Kululu for Thorn in Season 3. Thorn didn't like Kululu much for most of the series, but for Season 3, since Kululu no longer cared about what was happening and didn't seem to do anything of purpose, Thorn and his co-writers were able to do ridiculous things with him. "[[ItMakesSenseInContext Pineapple boats]]" alone made him one of Thorn's favourite characters for that season.



* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Many Manga/SgtFrog fans dislike [[YMMV/SgtFrog Joriri and Pururu]], but their [=SFA=] reinterpretations got a lot of love from those same fans.

Thorn and Jacob were particularly happy to bring Pururu back for Episode 25, and she ended up being Jacob's favourite to write for.

* GrowingTheBeard: Though they don't count it among the series' best, Thorn and Yoshi consider Episode 4 to be the point where everything in terms of writing and voicing started to gel, be it due to the expulsion of previous redundant team members or simply the introduction of [[BreakoutCharacter Dororo]]. Yoshi also didn't pick up as a voice-actor until Episode 4, nor did he enjoy voice acting until then.

** ''Mint's Hints'' from Episode 8 8, the Keroro Platoon's "animation" consisting of a single badly-drawn frame and ''VideoGame/MarioPaint'' music, [[SubvertedTrope was one until]] Tororo brought it back for Episode 17.
** Keroro's delirious engagement of "Keroro Love Fighters, commencing attack!"Fighters" in Episode 15. Despite apparently flinging himself across the room and terrorizing his friends, they never bring it up again.

Somehow you managed to turn everything that happened [[NeverMyFault into everyone else's fault.]] You ever think about why you can't make people happy? Because nothing you've done in your ''entire'' life has been for anyone else. You hurt my sister for questioning you, you abandon Tamama for being herself, you take advantage of [[TeamMom Giroro for keeping the team together,]] you mock Dororo for his undying devotion to you... and tell me, Keroro... [[ArmorPiercingQuestion Did you ever once think of what I go through to protect you!?]] (Crying) You donít care about anyone... You just drag everyone through the dirt...

** Bringing Travis in to help write Episode 9 was Thorn [[DefiedTrope attempting to prevent this trope]] after a particularly idea-less Episode 8. Episode 10 was also written with a back-to-basics approach after Thorn realized that Episodes 8 and 9's biggest flaw was that they were too self-aware.

* ContinuityLockOut: Every new episode's plot and several of its jokes are closely connected to the events and jokes of previous episodes. The team has noted that new viewers often start with the most recent episode, leaving out 2+ seasons' worth of jokes and continuity. The channel description requests that new viewers start from Episode 1, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pt427Nalp4Y a clip reel]] was made to serve as an introduction for those not interested in doing so.

When the series ended (the first time), he was voted Travis, Yoshi and Thorn's favourite character.

** [[CreatorBacklash Writer Thorn considers Episode 13 to be the series' low-point]], and although the episodes after were fine, he thinks Episode 17 was when SFA finally dug back out of it and truly get its spark back. This was mainly due to him and Yoshi jumping ahead and planning for 17, and the resulting excitement for such a later episode left them with no ideas or motivation for 13; it took them three tries to find an episode they could work with, and the resulting script was dry and unimpressive. Yoshi and Travis generally agree that 13 was "kinda bad", whereas all three (and many viewers) agree that 17 was one of the series' best episodes.
