* CriticalBacklash: Some players point out that several features like [[OneHitPointWonder dying in one hit]] and [[DeadlyWalls dying from touching a wall]] are treated as {{Scrappy Mechanic}}s in this game, [[DoubleStandard yet are generally-acceptable staples in other shoot-em-ups]].



* HypeBacklash: Some players enjoy the game and don't quite understand what's so memetically hard about it, and point out that several features like [[OneHitPointWonder dying in one hit]] and [[DeadlyWalls dying from touching a wall]] are treated as {{Scrappy Mechanic}}s in this game, [[DoubleStandard yet are generally-acceptable staples in other shoot-em-ups]].

* SoOkayItsAverage: It's not a ''horrible'' game, as it is technically sound and controls well, but even if you get used to the difficulty, the game doesn't really stand out among NES shooters.

* BadassDecay: One of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe is now a OneHitPointWonder with a hitbox the size of a van who dies from touching literally ''anything'' that's not a power-up. That fact that the one thing the player will likely see the most is the Silver Surfer [[http://img.gamefaqs.net/screens/9/d/f/gfs_39773_3_1.jpg prostrating himself in shame]] every time he dies pretty much says it all.

WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd ripped the game makers a new one for turning Silver Surfer into a wimp in their attempt to try to make the game difficult, something Arcadia succeeded too well at.

* OneSceneWonder: [[spoiler:Lady Chaos]] gets a few minutes of screen time in the unproduced script for "The End of Eternity: Part Two" and ''holy crap.''

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Before making a name for himself with {{Pulp Fiction}} and {{Killing Zoe}}, {{Roger Avary}} penned a script on spec in the late 80s. Based on {{Fantastic Four}} numbers 48-50, but with all references to the super hero team removed. In Avary's words: "Instead of Johnny Storm traveling to the Negative Zone, it's the Surfer. Instead of {{the Punisher}} guarding the Ultimate Nullifier in the Negative Zone I had a gold-skinned surfer-like guardian. Alecia Masters has no relationship with Ben Grimm, but is still a blind sculptress through her I have the Surfer rediscovering the humanity he lost when he transformed from Norrin Radd to the herald of {{Galactus}}. Lastly, my first draft supposed that Galactus wasn't necessarily a sentient entity, but a massive and complex planet eating robot-ship that's operated by millions of creatures [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Borg]]-like (before there were Borg)."
