** Also, we have Diehard, a character who throws a red, white, and blue circular shield that rebounds off of enemies and returns to him, and was the result of Project: Born Again. [[Comicbook/CaptainAmerica Original character, do not steal!]] We also get cyborg enemies who are known for saying "Resistance is futile; you will be assimilated," which is of course nothing like [[Franchise/StarTrek the Borg]], and a planet called D'Khay ruled by the godlike villain Darkthornn, accessed through teleportation devices known as "crash tunnels."[[note]]For non-comics fans, Jack Kirby's Fourth World features Darkseid, ruler of Apokolips, and they invade Earth through teleportation tunnels called Boom Tubes.[[/note]] Also, Cougar (and Wildmane) are not where the Wolverine ripoffery ends (or Warwolf being a blatant runoff of Sabertooth); this series actually has several. And speaking of Star Trek, the oh-so-imaginatively-named Combat is from a race of ProudWarriorRaceGuys whose ships look ''exactly'' like Klingon ships. (Interestingly, they don't look much like Klingons, or like each other. One ''does'' look perfectly identical to Nova (Frankie Raye) from Marvel, though. The pointy bits on the mask/face are just extended until it looks ridiculous.) Liefeld must've really felt like giving his lawyers a workout!

* 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''.
