YMMV: Awesomenauts
  • Artificial Stupidity: The AI in the game thus far is severely limited in quality; while strategy is encouraged, the AI only ever seems to pick Lonestar, Clunk, Froggy G, and Leon and employ basic rush tactics and flee once their health gets low. This can make winning a practice match as characters like Voltar or Coco difficult.
    • Averted after the 2.6 patch. The AI can now use all the characters apart from the Starstorm Nauts. They are also a bit smarter, with support characters staying by teammates and backing them up.
  • Awesome Music:
  • Ear Worm:
    • "It's the Froggy G, hop an' jump from nook to creek, croakin' rhymes from A to Z..."
    • "It's the Froggy G, overpowered as can be, such a prick, can't you see..."
    • "Down from the seas into space! Stretching his tentacles out, squirting them in your face!"
    • "Who's going to wreck this party? Who's gonna start a ruckus? Aylalalalalalala..."
    • "Ted McPaaiiiiin, True heroes never fade away..."
  • Game Breaker: Yuri can be this in the console versions with the right upgrades, with a time warp that can render droids and allies nearly invincible through healing, a laser long enough to hit a turret from a safe distance, and mines that do the most damage out of any attacks in the whole game. While he was nerfed in the PC version, the policies concerning updates on consoles unfortunately means Yuri will remain broken.
  • Gateway Series: To MOBA games.
  • Most Annoying Sound: "Your turret is under attack!" "Your turret is almost gone!" "Your turret has been destroyed!"
    • Any time your character's theme song overrides the background music. That only happens if you've got a good kill-streak going, but when it happens, it's awesome.
  • Serious Business: Less so than other MOBAs, but the element is there (particularly people who complain on the Awesomenauts wiki about various "broken" mechanics).
  • Stop Helping Me!: Displacement abilities such as Leon's tongue, Lonestar's bull, Skølldir's caber toss, and Coco's lighting ball can easily allow an enemy to escape an otherwise fatal situation if used incorrectly.
    • That is to say nothing about when a friendly Lonestar's bull pushes Clunk towards you far faster than you can run away from his Self-Destruct...
  • That One Map: Opinions on AI Station 404 are fairly split, but a number of players do see it as one.
  • Ugly Cute: Gnaw. It varies from drawing to drawing.
