YMMV / Atomic Betty

  • Ass Pull: Some people considered the entire third season this as well as believing the unexplained reasons for Paloma hiding as this.
  • Cargo Ship: Betty's mom with a chair in "Love Bites".
  • Ear Worm:
    • The main theme.
    • Anything on the album, really.
  • Fanon: Though Betty's parents were never named on the show, the fandom has named them Quincy and Tanya.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: When the Mission Earth episodes came on the air, some of the fans have this reaction to the season.
  • Ho Yay: Sparky and X-5. One episode had Sparky dress like a blonde cheerleader, and he dragged an unwilling X-5 and introduced him as a boyfriend. Another episode had this exchange:
    Sparky (talking about Betty rescuing Noah): "'He's not her boyfriend.' Yeah, right!" turns to X-5 "Would you kick that much booty if that were me dangling up there?"
    X-5: Not particularly.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In the Japanese dub, Betty is voiced by Yoko Honna, who is the voice of Sumeragi Lee Noriega who is also from mixed ancestry (Spaniard and Japanese) just like Betty. Extra hilarity one of Sumeragi's men, Alleluyah Haptism, is from Kazakh ancestry, just like Betty as well.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Penelope in "The Market". Her cat died and she only abducted that Jerk Ass raccoon to fill the void.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Maximus IQ when he temporarily becomes his One-Winged Angel form in "Amulet of Shangri-La-De-Da"
  • Squick: Betty's dad attempting to do goodness knows what with Purrsy while under the effects of a love spell, as well the suggestive stuff he says while chasing him.
    • One word: EW!
  • The Scrappy: A lot of people dislike (and even flat-out despise) Penelope for a good reason. Her attitude half the time and especially on season three is the reason many people nearly stopped watching Atomic Betty.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: They never really did much with the fact that Betty, her mom and Beatrixo all have alien DNA due to Beatrixo's father being an alien. Only Beatrixo's sister Auntie Matter displays alien powers.
    • The same can be said for the whole Paloma plot point and the reason why she never informs Betty.
    • Noah found out Betty's secret and joined the Galactic Guardians, but the show never really did much with him in that role except the same old jokes he was already the butt of.
  • What Could Have Been: Betty would have been 8 instead of 12 due to her having a flower on her green skirt and carrying a Sparky doll all the time. If so, she would be 13 in 2013 (on the final episode) and possibly 4 during a flashback in Spindly Tam Kanushu. Also, Betty's missions took place at night.
