----

* AcceptableTargets: Overly zealous or swarmy Christians, creators/animators/writers/actors of any particularly bad work, Tim Buckley, Doug Walker, the monkeys in charge of Website/YouTube, and ''Bouchedags''. ''The Nutshack'' lead to some non-malicious ribbing of Filipinos in general.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation:
** Simon Belmont as a "[[EccentricMentor stealth]] [[TricksterMentor mentor]]" in ''Captain N'', happily hanging back and allowing the heroes to deal with the situation themselves in order to let them learn from the experience as his own input would solve the problem too soon.
** The young man in Annotated Daydream [[ViewerGenderConfusion as a woman]], making it a music video about a same-sex relationship. Also the drummer/lead singer as a laboratory escapee from an experiment to combine the DNA of Music/JustinBieber and Phil Collins.
** The Genie in an early episode of ''Captain N'' as a "guest annotator."
** King Hippo and Eggplant Wizard as a couple. The annotators are pretty convinced the writers intended it though.
** Kevin is really a young psychopath, what with staying in Video Land over the petty fate of having to clean his room if he returns home. Along with blowing stuff up for attention. Simon tries to curb his nastier tendencies and set him on a better path.
** The man in the black and red jumpsuit of the third ''Street Fighter'' episode was {{Deadpool}}, according to the annotators.
** The Oracle of Delphius, the mentor of the trio from WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground, is actually the true big bad of the show. Why are they going with this? 1) Oracle has amazing powers and could have killed Robotnik in his own bedroom. 2) Oracle instead gives Robotnik the heads up about the prophecy and that is what gets Robotnik to start looking for the trio. 3) If he hadn't directed the trio in the first episode to meet at a public place then their foster parents would have been safe and not turned into robots. So the Oracle is [[TheChessmaster playing Robotnik and the resistance off each other]], planning to finish off whoever is left in the end. It is probably just poor writing BUT the show was cut short so it isn't impossible.
*** Interpreting Queen Aleena as either incredibly foolish or actually ''in'' on the Oracle's plan. And/or she has zero wishes to want to reunite with her own kin, or else she wants to kill off Sonic and Sonia and reunite with Manic only.
*** Episode 26 of ''Sonic Underground'' doesn't really take place in the alternate universe, but rather in the future where Sonic, Sonia, and Manic finally found their mother, and as a result became much worse than Robotnik, who in turn [[HeelFaceTurn saw the error of his ways, and lead the new Freedom Fighters.]]
** "The Harlem Globetrotters Meet Snow White" takes place not in medieval times, but in a third-world European country.
** Not exactly character, but some annotators think Darkstalkers cartoon was meant to be a satire of video game cartoons, [[http://z13.invisionfree.com/Annotation_Station/index.php?showtopic=895 brief explanation here.]]
* AwesomeEgo: The annotators consider the ''Captain N'' version of Simon Belmont to be the best character in that show.
* AwesomeMusic: Some of the annotators actually like the "surf music" used in some DiCEntertainment shows.
* BizarroEpisode: Many of the intermissions come and go.
* BrokenBase: Sometimes there's some minor head-butting between annotators. In the past there were a few debates over whether they should strictly stick to video game adaptions/series related to video games or work with other things. Though for now the compromise has been main content: video games; intermissions: anything goes.
* ContinuityLockout: If you watch a newer episode first, you are bound to be confused by the references and {{Call Back}}s to previous episodes (for example, the episodes on ''The Nutshack'' reference the ''Bouchedags'' episodes quite a bit).
* DesignatedHero: The annotators ''will'' spot when heroes are either [[MoralDissonance doing something the villains would get reprimanded for]], [[{{Hypocrite}} acting against something they preached earlier]], or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking just general dickery]]. The protagonists of ''Sonic Underground'' particularly got this, especially in Episode 32.
* DudeNotFunny: Bouchedags was mercilessly ripped apart for its racial stereotyping, misogyny and making light of various mental and physical handicaps.
-->*audience doesn't laugh*
** A few viewers were like this when Santa started to cry in ''Christmas Comes To Pac-Land''.
** A lot of viewers had trouble with the more serious parts of ''Tricky People'' what with child molestation hitting a little too close for home.
** A couple of people got rather upset by Mario's mother's [[AbusiveParents abusive behavior]] in ''Super Show''. They ''universally'' found "Little Marios" disturbing, in particular the ending (in which the runaway kid decided to return because he didn't want his parents to have fun with him gone, or something).
** Rayne's "I'll clean glass out of the cat later" earned this response.
* EarWorm: The surf music. Also the ''Backside To The Future'' theme which was even lampshaded by the Annotators.
* EnsembleDarkHorse: There's almost always ONE character that the annotators actually like:
** Cheatsy and Kooky in ''Super Mario Bros 3.'', as well as Doug the Bug (who was merely a frequent animation error).
** BISON!!! *flames* from ''Street Fighter''.
*** Burke, Rory, and Celia were also well-received in their debut episode, even leading to the annotators asking why the show isn't about ''them''.
** Raiden from ''Defenders of the Realm''. Night Wolf too perhaps due to him [[TookALevelInBadAss taking a level in bad ass]] in the then-recent ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'', so people were easier on him. And for being genuinely amicable, when everyone seemed to bicker every five seconds, and rarely being useless when he got to head out into the field. Jax and Sonya got just a little less hate near the end when they started to show a little character development.
*** Quan Chi, a recurring ''Mortal Kombat'' villain, debuted in ''Defenders of the Realm'' of all places. For that was referred to as the best OriginalCharacter ever.
** The buzzard ([[IAmNotWeasel not turkey!]]) in the ''Bubsy'' pilot.
** Many in ''Captain N'':
*** Simon Belmont (if his other appearances on this page didn't make that obvious).
*** Bizarrely enough, '''[[TheScrappy GAMEBOY]]''' of all people is one as well, aided by "trying to kill" Pit and sporting [[CoolShades bitching sunglasses]] in one episode.
*** Mike. Popular enough that people wished he was the real Game Master, wished he came back for the Californialand episode, AND gave him a {{Fanon}} backstory for ''All Star Cartoons''.
*** King Hippo and Eggplant Wizard slowly but surely came to this. One part (as disgusting as it is) shipping and one part being [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain sympathetic]] and [[HarmlessVillain not very malicious]] has helped them grow onto the bulk of the crew. Annotators were even disappointed that the writers missed the chance to get the two into official couple status in the Paperboy episode.
** Santa, from ''Christmas Comes To Pac-Land'', wasn't really ripped on much by most annotators. Again, some even were kinda depressed when he started to cry after he realized he missed his deadline for Christmas for the first time.
** The Little Panda Fighter just barely one-ups ''Ratatoing'' with having a very last minute dark horse: Polaris. In the last five minutes the cartoon gets 'awesomely mean spirited' and Polaris was a chess master and pulled a huge 'deal with it' poise at the end.
** Uncle Theobold in Mouse Police ''barely'' qualified.
** While Cypher wasn't exactly loved from their first Bibleman episode he was found more interesting for being pro-active and not quite as spouty as Bibleman. Since the new Bibleman flows way too easily into his role it was more interesting watching Cypher have to cease being a solo hero and go back to being a sidekick.
** SonicUnderground:
*** Dingo for being such an ineffective villain as well as him wanting to be noticed by Sonia, making him seem sweet (when he doesn't have a rape-face on).
*** Bartleby.
*** [[OneSceneWonder 'Arhnuld' (trainer from episode 3) and Argus (episode 4)]] are all seen as being split reincarnations of Simon Belmont. The first as his foppy-side and the last two as his awesome side.
*** Manic and Sleet have a few fans.
*** "Agent N" from episode 6 was complimented for actually being ''effective'' as a villain.
*** "[[EasyAmnesia Amnesia]] [[NotHimself Sonia]]" for being actually competent and semi-tolerable as a protagonist.
*** ART in Episode 38 was fairly well-liked, even after his inevitable HeelFaceTurn and HeroicSacrifice.
** In a meta sense: the openings for a show. They only get to be put up once or twice, first episode and last episode of a show/season. They are always cluttered with loads and loads of annotations.
** Guest character Herlock Solmes of ''The Super Mario Bros. Super Show'' gained the annotators' admiration for his "legendary" verbal beatdown on Koopiarty.
*** Master Misaki also has this status.
*** {{Captain Lou Albano}} (and to a lesser extent Danny Wells) while not in character seem to get some love from the annotators.
** Mr. Clipboard from ''{{Foodfight}}'', due to the fact he's voiced by Creator/ChristopherLloyd and his UncannyValley movements being ''humorous'' rather than unsettling. Plus Mr. Clean for not having his image further tarnished by speaking.
** Dr. Know-it-all from Club Mario for sharing the annotators' hatred of the obnoxious hosts and threatening to file a lawsuit against them after they ridiculed him.
** Petey the Purse, a minor thug from an episode of ''ComicBook/TheSavageDragon'' quickly became popular amongst the annotators.
*** Basher seems to get a bit of love too.
** Lord Raptor from the Darkstalkers animated series.
** Dr. Wily and Pharohman from the ''WesternAnimation/MegaMan'' cartoon. The former largely due to his voice and the latter because of his (short-lived) awesomeness and effectiveness as a henchman.
*** Proto Man became this towards the end of the series.
** Bluster Kong from ''WesternAnimation/DonkeyKongCountry''. At first, he was hailed as being a much better Cranky than Cranky until the characters got [[CharacterRerailment rerailed]]. Bluster developed a Simon Belmont-esque personality later on in the show, and had a few [[AwesomeMoment awesome moments]], most notably in ''Booty and the Beast'', ''Bluster The Benevolent'', and the upcoming ''Hunka Hunka Burnin' Bluster''.
*** As has Funky Kong for his laid-back, [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation oft. stoned]] nature. Eddy and the Kremlings have also gained ''some'' appreciation among the Annotators.
** ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' had the best portrayal of Robotnik so far, according to the Annotators. The SWAT Bots [[TookALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]] in Episode 4 helped them garner some appreciation.
** Ganon from ''Legend Of Zelda'', so much so that the annotators got ''really'' pissed when there was an episode he didn't appear in.
** Kree from ''[[Creator/DingoPictures Dinosaur Adventure]]'' became one quickly, mostly because he disses the other characters and generally acts like a troll, knowing he can get away with it.
--> "Shut up Peak, you're a freak!"
* EarWorm: The surf music.
* EightDeadlyWords: The Annotators display this reaction many, many, ''many'' times in the shows they watch, citing no care for most of the protagonists, sometimes extending to not caring what they do. Even worse when they express more care for characters they aren't supposed to care about or like.
* EvilIsCool: Ganon was complimented among his very first scene in ''The Legend of Zelda: The Annotated Series''.
* FairForItsDay: Supervising Women Workers had some slight defenders that for all its misogyny, it was a time when women were just starting to enter the workforce while men were fighting in World War II. To be fair, the short was never saying women COULDN'T work jobs men typically had to do; but with the way it highlights that women apparently are sensitive and get jealous, [[SarcasmMode things men]] [[MenDontCry NEVER feel]], it sure is outdated these days.
* {{Fanon}}: Michael in Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue was made out to be Mike from an early episode of Captain N: The Game Master. [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation Despite now being enemies, he and his friends were sincerely distraught by Kevin's disappearance and turned to drugs to cope with the loss.]]
** He's also [[Videogame/{{Darkseed}} Mike Dawson]] as interpreted by WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}}.
* FanPreferredCouple: King Hippo/Eggplant Wizard.
* FridgeHorror: Typically pointed out in episodes but a more out of universe one was for the Armor of Light folks. It was a Christian special that talked all about victory and defeating enemies... not a single word about forgiveness (for 96 percent of the special), loving your enemies or just freaking letting God sort out who goes to heaven and who goes to Hell like He is supposed to. The fact they weren't trying to hide the 'sheep' mentality was found a tad horrifying.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In the Mario Bros. Ice Capades story the Spiney gets 'I am the S.T.M. (Master of Theology) of Spinning!' thus nodding to an EnsembleDarkHorse history towards Cheatsy Koopa and completely on a whim without watching the whole video. Thus cue Spiney being the only member of Koopa's army surviving Luigi's onslaught.
* GrowingTheBeard: On the one hand, disabling collaborative annotations severely limited the number of people who could contribute. On the other hand, when anyone could contribute, [[SturgeonsLaw there was little to no quality control]].
* HilariousInHindsight: In the third ''Street Fighter'' episode, "Deadpool", in his one scene, says he's gettin' out of the series, because there's no yellow boxes he can speak into. One of the annotation colors is yellow, now.
* HoYay:
** Some time after the [[HeroicBSOD Heroic BSODs]] expressed throughout Bouchedags, one Annotator admitted the reason he made it all the way through it himself was because he thought Sam was kinda cute.
** [[WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster Eggplant Wizard and King Hippo]], much to the AlternativeCharacterInterpretation-induced [[FanDisservice disgust]] of the Annotators. To that end, Kevin and Mike as well.
* HypeBacklash:
** [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. Game Boy from Captain N was hyped up to be basically the most annoying character of all time... but aside from a couple jokes in the first two episodes of Season Two, several annotators ended up ''liking'' him (especially compared to Megaman and Kid Icarus).
** The Annotators experienced this in regards to ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'', with the dull stories and Sonic's obnoxious characterization being particular turn-offs. This resulted in the [[AbortedArc early end]] of the show's run on the channel and the second season's abandonment due to a lack of enthusiasm and interest for the show.
* IAmNotShazam: There is no name for the actual group of people that do this, though they are often referred to as "[=TheAnnotatXperiment=]" due to the Website/YouTube account name. Similarly, [=CurtDogg=] is [=CurtDogg=] and not beeupyou; that's just a phonetic pun of the B^U emoticon. This isn't relevant anymore as the official group now officially named as TheAnnotationStation.
* IdiotPlot: Lampshaded.
* JumpingTheShark: [[LampshadeHanging They fully expected this reaction]] when they did the ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' pilot, with the video descriptions daring people to unsubscribe.
* MagnumOpus: Varies, the first Bible Man is up there in terms of views along with Bouchedags. Foodfight was considered one of the funnest things to wail on numerous annotators admitted.
* MagnificentBastard: The Oracle Of Delphius according to the Annotators.
* MemeticBadass: Pharaoh Man.
* MemeticLoser: The SWAT-Bots and Queen Aleena from ''Sonic Underground''.
* {{Mondegreen}}: Frequent.
* MoralEventHorizon: Kevin destroying Football World is treated as this by the annotators.
* MostAnnoyingSound: Oh God there are ''so many'':
** "WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong". Bubsy's voice in general made the Annotators want to gut him. Kootie Pie and Sonia's voices got similar reactions.
** Pitt adding "-icus" at the end of his sentences got old '''fast'''.
** The surf music got on a lot of people's nerves. By the time of ''Captain N'' however most people [[SubvertedTrope warmed up to it]].
* MostWonderfulSound: The Annotators had ''a lot'' of fun with the chicken noises coming from the robots in ''Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Annotated Realm''.
** Isn't that trope usually for 'good' sounds? What might be a better example is Bison's 'yesh' since everyone went wild when that awesome scene occurred. Also the music accompanying it later invoked many glorious 'yeshes!'
* NeverLiveItDown:
** Sagat in ''Street Fighter: The Annotated Series'' was made fun of for his inability to use a tank to knock down a gate.
** Guile was consistently mocked for the fact that he boasts about Honor, Justice, and Commitment... When, at some point during season 2, he ''used a Sonic Boom on a guy from behind''. It did not help he proceeded to do it again in later episodes. People tend to say he has some sort of compulsion to shoot them from behind with a Sonic Boom, and say something along the lines of "He had his back turned, he was asking for it!".
** One part this and one part running gag for Captain N for two. First there's Eggplant Wizard's non sequitur 'Radio Controlled Sweet Potato' and then there's Lana asking 'what about the peace treaty?' whenever Mother Brain departs from her.
** The plant doctor from Super Mario Bros: Super Show had annotations that were 90% [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Heavy Weapons Guy]] quotes, mainly since Gary Schwartz was the same person playing the role of the plant doctor and the Heavy.
** Thanks to episode 9 of Ctrl+Alt+Del, the sound of a slide whistle always causes Buckley's name to come up.
** Whenever Doc Brown or any Film/{{Back to the Future}} reference is mentioned; expect a quote from Mr. Clipboard, who was played by {{Christopher Lloyd}}.
* NightmareFuel: Some of the annotations note how creepy Mother Brain is. Rebound may be a scrappy but damn are the noises he makes when he goes psycho scary as hell!
** Sonia's NightmareSequence in episode 6 had people admit they were frightened.
* OneSceneWonder: Eggplant Wizard and his peach dancers.
** Mike only got one episode and has earned some {{fanon}} backstory!
** The man in the black and red jumpsuit from the third ''Street Fighter'' episode aka "Deadpool".
** Pharaoh Man from ''Mega Man'', who was an absolutely awesome bad guy but never appeared again after his short appearance in "The Electric Nightmare".
* RelationshipWritingFumble: Any work which attempts to do a relationship tends to get this, with a few exceptions (such as Eggplant Wizard and King Hippo's HoYay in WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster).
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Bully Koopa saw some love after bullying (what else?) Kootie Pie and Big-Mouth in one episode.
** The "Surf Music" counts, too. The annotators hated it in ''SMB3'', but have warmed up to it since ''Captain N''.
** Jeffrey Scott, the writer of season 1 for Captain N. He wrote some pretty bad episodes (Simon's amnesia being a particularly hated one) but he also wrote the Mike episode and seemed to maintain some very minor consistency. Some even worse episodes of season 2 have some people wishing he came back, though he isn't the only one to write some noteworthy episodes.
* RootingForTheEmpire:
** Characters the audience is supposed to hate tend to get the most sympathy.
** At first averted with ''Captain N'', but as time went on people started to sympathize with the villains. It got to the point that they said it was ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' all over again in the Paperboy episode.
** NME, from Armor of Light, just barely passes. Nobody likes the annoying bad guys, except maybe Dark Master's look, the Annotators just despise smarmy protagonists more. Also NME wasn't shown doing anything bad in the special so the kids came off as a bunch of Christian extremists that sabotaged corporate broadcasts and interrupted a vague band contest.
** Brand X of {{WesternAnimation/FoodFight}}, due to the fact the protagonists [[FlatCharacter barely have much character]] and the other mascots in the film have been annoying and [[UncannyValley creepy-looking]], though some were uncomfortable about the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Nazi overtones]]. Most of the rooting went to Mr. Clipboard, who [[OneSceneWonder quickly became the film's]] EnsembleDarkhorse.
* TheScrappy:
** Given that their work so far consists almost entirely of animated adaptations of works full of already established characters that are already recognisable, most original characters (insistently termed OCs) get a lot of hate. Exceptions to the rule take the other extreme; see the EnsembleDarkHorse entry above.
** In [[CtrlAltDel CAD]], Ethan. One might refer to [[AuthorAvatar Buckley]] himself as such too.
** Super Mario World had Oogtar, Yoshi and Kootie Pie. Any appearance by the latter brought in a running gag of her tolerance meter showing up on screen. It was always quick to max out, and the very last time it literally went off the scale, let out an AtomicFBomb and exploded.
--->''Kootie Pie Tolerance Level: Exceeded''
*** While Oogtar and Yoshi were frequently compared to Mario 3's Toad, they went quite easy on him once they annotated that series. Maybe they realized he could've been much worse. Although by the Super Show, they grew to hate Toad more than the previous two.
*** Come Super Mario Bros. 3 they got quite sick of Big-Mouth and Bully Koopa too. Bully later managed to [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap redeem himself]] by turning his bullying on his obnoxious siblings including [[TakeThatScrappy Kootie Pie]].
** Nearly EVERYONE from Nutshack with a little less hate for Dickman.
** Stryker seemed to get the most hate out of the heroes of Mortal Kombat.
** Everyone in Bouchedags.
** While the cast of the Bubsy pilot were generally disliked, Terri and Terry got the worst reception by far, even more so than Bubsy himself.
** Everyone from ''Animation/{{Ratatoing}}''. Even the VILLAINS were terrible, since they never really had any good ideas throughout the film.
*** Continuing with the Video Brinquedo hate, everyone from The Little Panda Fighter sans Polaris was hated, especially Beth, the bear bitch that shows no character development other than: "Pandas are so ridiculous and stupid. Big, muscular, and popular bears are so hot".
** Puff, a OneShotCharacter from ''Captain N,'' was a baby dragon that knew how to say "Mama!" and how to scream. And that was it. Also from Captain N are Kid Icarus, and to a lesser extent Megaman, due to their voices and verbal tics. Gameboy was played up to be this, but has since ended up ignored (and sometimes even appreciated) for the most part.
** The Pause Annotation is becoming this because somebody/ies really likes using it for every slightly off face.
*** It has been removed from YouTube, to the [[TakeThatScrappy joy of those that hated it]], [[AlasPoorScrappy and the frustration of those that liked it]].
** Owandt, an Annotator from the Beeupyou days, had a habit of forcing anti-Republican and technology-related jokes while annotating episodes of ''Super Mario Bros. 3''. A lot of the other Annotators found it irritating, to say the least.
** None of the main trio of ''Sonic Underground'' is particularly liked, but the annotators' vitriol for Sonia is so strong that she once exceeded their tolerance meter just by showing up.
*** Sonic is also regularly disliked due to the fact that his characterization is obnoxious and [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands regularly seems to get new abilities for the sake of the plot]].
** The Wacky Protester/Rotten Guy from ''Bibleman'' is hated for being a rather obnoxious and annoying villain with a subplot revolving around him having a mid-life crisis. It doesn't help that his plan involves [[UnfortunateImplications kidnapping children and trapping them in a surreal world to brainwash them into becoming Atheists,]] which was seen as bad taste by the Annotaters.
** Daredevil Dan, the Frog and Cheasel from ''Foodfight'' annoyed many. Cheasel [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap redeemed himself]] to some when he defeated one of the BrandX generals with a RunningGag in the film that he was subjected to consistently but some took it back when they found out Cheasel was voiced by the 'director' who added a lot of the more vulgar gags.
** The penguin, voiced by ChrisKattan, also isn't very well-liked, though for some, his limited amount of screen time cancels it out.
** Tommy Treehugger and Co-MC from the Club Mario segment for SMBSS episode 31 are loathed for their TotallyRadical dialogue, being {{Replacement Scrapp|y}}ies for Wrestling/CaptainLouAlbano and Danny Wells, and their abysmal brand of humor. Fortunately, their appearance is a one-off.
** Out of all the members of Savage Dragon's RoguesGallery, Horde has a habit of annoying the annotators whenever he gets an appearance.
*** Mako gets a bit of ire due to the fact that he's a largely incompetent second-in-command to Overlord who, unlike the other characters in his category, doesn't seem intended to be [[HarmlessVillain funny]] or [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain sympathetic]], to the point that people think that Basher, Overlord's DumbMuscle, should be the second-in-command instead.
** Diddy Kong from ''Donkey Kong Country'' has received a fair bit of hate due to his obnoxious singing voice and his asshole nature to Donkey Kong.
*** General Klump started to become this towards a few people since the channel jump to TheAnnotationStation, being that he talks too much just to pad out the episode like Big Mouth.
** Rayne in the ''Webcomic/LeastICouldDo'' pilot.
** J. Wellington Wimpy from the ''WesternAnimation/PopeyeAndSon'' one-off episode. The show itself didn't get much love either.
** Peak from ''[[Creator/DingoPictures Dinosaur Adventure]]'' is one due to his dopey personality, his annoying, rhyming speech, and his snitching on the other characters. Any character dissing him instantly earns them favor from the annotators.
* {{Sequelitis}}: Dr. Rabbit hurt these people hard.
** So did the ''Super Mario Bros. Super Show'', after doing the entire animated segments for a year, with the remaining live action bits being tacked on to their next series (''Darkstalkers'').
* SoBadItsGood: What their targets often are.
* SoOkayItsAverage: The general reaction to Animation/BeautyAndWarrior was that while it wasn't ''good'' in any sense of the word, it was mainly tedious and confusing rather than hilariously stupid. Then came Jay's Life Episode 4 which was just to stop Irrelevant from putting up more Nutshack and it was more lazy than offensive.
** They had this reaction to Sonic SatAM. It certainly wasn't as great as it was praised to be, but they felt it wasn't bad enough to make for a good riffing. They actually decided to [[AbortedArc just drop the show]] midway through the series rather than finish it for this reason; the show wasn't so good that they would really get into it, but the bad elements were too low-key to do much bashing on.
* {{Squick}}: Simon Belmont tearing off Donkey Kong's toenail.
** The main girl character from Tricky People and the short skirt of her costume.
** King Koopa having his feet licked in SuperMarioBrosSuperShow by two minions, and he isn't going to live it down.
** Dex and Sunshine's relationship in Foodfight, for two reasons: One, because Dex is voiced by Charlie Sheen and Sunshine is voiced by Hilary Duff from 2003, and two because of how much more humanoid Sunshine is compared to Dex.
* TheyJustDidntCare: Often parodied, but aside from that, this is by and far their biggest complaint about particular shows. ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'' was accused of this the most, being regularly criticized for its inconsistent tone, glaring {{Plot Hole}}s and {{Series Continuity Error}}s, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking increasingly lazy animation]].
* WinBackTheCrowd: After the fairly disappointing Sonic Satam riff was ended early, it was followed by three short riffs (The Burial Of The Nicklodeon Time Capsule, ''Pitfall'', and ''Backside To The Future'') which were absolutely hilarious and essentially gave the Annotators a HeroicSecondWind.
* UnfortunateImplications: Often encountered in some of the more unsavory works annotated and almost always called out. ''Bouchedags'' was notable for managing to be offensive towards ''everyone''; there was racism, sexism, mocking of mentally challenged people (including a scene where [[DudeNotFunny a guy has a mentally retarded woman give him a blowjob after emotionally abusing her all night]]), and glorifying of stereotypes and abuse.
* UglyCute: Annotators were touched when Eggplant Wizard helped King Hippo escape from the trap protecting the Triforce in the 9th episode of season 2. Those little round dragons from Captain N had a few 'awwws.'
* {{Wangst}}: People often accused Blanka of this in ''WesternAnimation/StreetFighter''.
