* CriticalResearchFailure: From ''Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes'', Watson's statement of "in his entire career that was the only time Sherlock ever used a gun." Sherlock carried a pistol and used it quite often.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: '''YES''', The Asylum has had ''one'' moment of these: Their film Film/100Feet got good reception and those who hate The Asylum will acknowledge this is their most original of their films.

* MemeticMutation: Aside from all the usual mockery reserved ''for'' the company. ''Sharknado'' has become a big internet sensation in and of itself.

* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: After {{Universal}} [[http://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/news/universal-sues-the-asylum-over-american-battleship-asylum-thankful-for-press sued them]] over their ''Film/{{Battleship}}'' mockbuster ''American Battleship'' (which was later renamed ''American Warships'' and given new cover art), The Asylum responded by thanking Universal for the press... after mocking and insulting Universal's movie. One must admit, for all their lack of class and talent, one thing that The Asylum certainly isn't lacking in is balls.

** A few months later, this was subverted when Creator/WarnerBros sued The Asylum, with [[http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/cotown/la-et-ct-age-hobbits-blocked-20121210,0,6595906.story similar results to Universal's suit]], over ''Film/TheHobbit'' mockbuster ''Age of the Hobbits''. The Asylum film had to be renamed ''Clash of the Empires'' and would not see the light of day for more than two months. ''An Unexpected Journey'' got far more critical respect and was a major box office hit vis-à-vis ''Battleship''.



* SpecialEffectsFailure: The standard quality for these movies; but it really says something when both The Director and VFX provider of ''Transmorphers'' (Leigh Scott and Synapse FX, respectively) say the effects are garbage.

** It's even better if you watch certain movies back-to-back, as stock footage reuse is done across movies as well. ''The Terminators'' main control building is a Japanese government building in ''Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus''; not to mention the sonar/radar/space GPS screens being exactly the same.
