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.
    • In a beta version of the game, instead of appearing increasingly tired, Awesome Possom's mugshot in the top left of the screen gradually decayed as he took damage.
  • 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.
