* MisaimedMarketing: In the 90's, there were plans for FoxKids to do a SaturdayMorningCartoon adaptation. The franchise's entire claim to fame was that it was part of [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks the trend of]] DarkerAndEdgier, HotterAndSexier comics starring teams of violent {{Nineties Anti Hero}}es, which makes you wonder why someone would look at that and think "This would be GREAT as a kid's show!"

* ClicheStorm: The series featured a team whose only [[BadassNormal non-powered member]] was also its leader, several Wolverine [[CaptainErsatz rip-offs]] including a ProudWarriorRaceGuy, characters layered in [[TooManyBelts pouches]] and [[ShouldersOfDoom shoulderpads]], [[DarkAgeOfSupernames names]] like "Darcangel" and "[[strike:Bedrock]] Badrock"," gun-toting [[NinetiesAntiHero anti-heroes]] with religious-sounding names (the hot new character when the book debuted was Marvel's gun-toting antihero Bishop -- Youngblood gives us Chapel, Cross, and Prophet), and buxom women in [[{{Stripperiffic}} skimpy outfits]]. And they had "Home" and [[WestCoastTeam "Away"]] teams.

Added DiffLines:

* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: Like many of Creator/RobLiefeld's works this series was clearly "influenced by" similar Marvel and DC properties. This--among other things--gave Liefeld haters just that much more ammunition. Youngblood'' is the remnant of a Comicbook/TeenTitans spin-off Liefeld had created. The character of Shaft is clearly a CaptainErsatz of ComicBook/GreenArrow's sidekick Speedy. It doesn't take much that Cougar is essentially a repaint of ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} or that Sentinel is either Comicbook/IronMan or Comicbook/WarMachine without the helmet.

* MemeticMutation: Creator/RobLiefeld's Shaft! 7" tall, fully poseable! [[labelnote:Explaination]]From an ad for an action figure of said character.[[/labelnote]]

***The character was originally named Bedrock, so this is 100% intentional.

** It's not much better in English as it brings to mind TheFlintstones more than anything.

** It's not much better in English as it brings to mind TheFlintstones more than anything. Since Badrock's original battle cry was "Yabba-Dabba-DOOM!", this is clearly intentional, both in-universe and out.
