* 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!"(at least until you remember that violent films like the Rambo series and Robocop had animated adaptions aimed at kids)

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: In the recent relaunch, the team is fighting a giant robot. The battle abruptly ends when Badrock jumps out of a plane on top of it.

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

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: In ''Youngblood #1'' (2017), the OnPatrolMontage of Petra Gomez, while we see the reviews she's getting on ''Help'' from the the people she's rescuing. Firstly, she's in a desperate firefight with an unseen assailant, with a car being thrown around behind her, with the review simply states [[WackyFratboyHijinx "Sorry our party got out of hand. Phi Kappa Theta!"]]. Next, we see her jumping out of a exploding building with the [[ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike two-star review "Saved my life, but blew up my store]]. Finally we get an image of Petra injured and bleeding while the five-star review cheerfully proclaims [[BlackComedy "Rescued my daughter from human trafficking. Would use again! (Hope I never have to)"]]

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: Pretty much any of the relaunchs, due to the original 1992 ''Youngblood'' series being so infamous. Notably, the first issue of the 2017 relaunch has received overall positive reviews from critics and readers, many of whom admit they had low expectations for the series due to it being, well, ''Youngblood''.

* FollowTheLeader: The 2017 relaunch is essentially Image's attempt to rejuvenate the ''Youngblood'' franchise, celebrating its history while bringing in new fans, not unlike ComicBook/DCRebirth, which started roughly a year earlier. The first arc is even called "Youngblood Reborn".

* 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.

* 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.
