YMMV / Awesome Possum

  • Anvilicious: You know how Sonic the Hedgehog had a subtle environmental message? This is not subtle.
  • Memetic Loser: While Bubsy is the more infamous Sonic-knockoff, Awesome Possum is still remembered as being even an even worse character than Bubsy.
  • Most Annoying Sound: "I'm so cool! I'm so cool! I'm so cool!" And pretty much everything that Awesome Possum says, due to the fact that he just won't shut up.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • The gloomy, ruined landscapes, the deformed giant bees, the looming council of animals that asks you questions in between levels, and gets really pissed off when you answer incorrectly...
    • The Game Over screen.
    • Some of Awesome Possum's death animations can be a little graphic, as detailed below.
    • In a beta version of the game—instead of appearing increasingly tired before ultimately dying with X-shaped Wingding Eyes and his tongue comically hanging out— Awesome Possum's mugshot in the top left of the screen gradually decayed as he took damage, and his only death animation involved him rotting away into a skeleton.
  • The Scrappy: Awesome Possum himself is this due to being a Sonic ripoff, as well as his annoying voice and the poor quality of the game in general.
  • Serial Numbers Filed Off: The game is so transparently a copy of Sonic the Hedgehog, down to the machine-themed villain, the Green Hill Zone first level, and even the spinning jump animation of the titular character.
