YMMV / Awesome Series

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Snake's (and by extention, Egoraptor himself's) adamant refusal to listen to any codec calls that aren't forced upon him by the game leads him to running headfirst into lasers, bombs, a tank, and ultimately getting killed by Psycho Mantis. This behavior seems almost prophetic when we see Arin's playstyle in Game Grumps.
  • Informed Loner: Egoraptor himself. He's said in interviews that he often has problems with social interaction and making small talk but in person he certainly doesn't come off that way. See Game Grumps, where his social life is referenced every now and then. He's also engaged. To a goose.
  • Magnum Opus Dissonance: Egoraptor claims that his best work is Sequelitis, due to both the time and effort he put into the episodes and the fact that he values an ability to make people think over an ability to make people laugh.
    • Not that Sequelitis isn't appreciated, it's just much, much younger; was barely a year old before Schedule Slip hit, and had only three episodes for two years of waiting (and episode 3 is only five minutes long).
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • *Statement*... I mean "Venusaur".
    • The angry face right before "zombie cancer." Egoraptor was betting on the "O-face" to go memetic, but zombie cancer was much more popular.
  • Non Sequitur: The most common complaint of PokeAwesome2 is that it takes pains to set up a final punch-line, and then the final punch line both makes absolutely no sense and is just a sex joke.
  • Older Than They Think: Sort of. An over-the-top Metal Gear Solid parody that acts as a Fountain of Memes with a big helping of Character Exaggeration? It happened again.
  • Sequelitis: A vocal part of the fanbase consider the original PokeAwesome to be vastly superior to its sequel.
  • Wangst: Parodied in Awesome Fantasy VII.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Gears of Awesome. Damn train.
