Our Kickstarter campaign has received $74,000 from over 2,000 backers! TV Tropes 2.0 is coming. There is no stopping it now. We have 4 days left. At $75K we can also develop an API and at $100K the tropes web series will be produced. View the project here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Crazy Awesome: MANY examples (see page image), including a T-Rex that breathes fire, has a "super duper fast bite", wears cop glasses, has "robot machine gun arms", and can fly into space, and can also transform into a dragon with rocket wings. Let's just say "the entire series" and call it a day.
Crosses the Line Twice: In a Halloween Ask Axe Cop, he is asked to design the scariest haunted house ever. The hypothetical family is left horribly, horribly traumatized. Then? A mechanical spider-camera hands them a DVD of their experience to enjoy in the future.
Designated Villain: Telescope Gun Cop, at first. He never actually does anything evil until after he's dubbed a villain.
Dude, Not Funny!: Axe Cop locking a baby in a closet to keep her from eating, and putting cyborgs nearby to punch her any time she cries, drew quite a few complaints. Of course, this was written by a seven year old who probably didn't know why this would be upsetting to people.
Baby-Man's family, in large part because it's just so surreal. The shadowy drawing style and total lack of dialogue on the page that introduces them suggest that this may have been intentional.
The rabbits from Ask Axe Cop #76. These are giant rabbits created explicitly for the purpose of feeding an owl for a year, until they are reduced to bones. While they are still alive. They are stated to feel no pain, but whether that makes this less or more creepy, you have to decide for yourself.
The Scrappy: Lobster Man and his domineering attitude earned a number of haters in his first few appearances. This didn't last long when his backstory revealed him as the brother of Hasta Mia desperate to stop her.
At the end of Bad Guy Earth, Axe Cop prays for God to make everyone on Earth poop in their pants. Cue Reaction Shots.
The original draft for the epilogue of Axe Cop Babysits Uni-Baby had the Magic World Police forcing Axe Cop and Dinosaur Soldier to eat their own poop and drink their own pee for the rest of their lives, which they get around by cloning themselves. Fortunately, Ethan refused to draw the comic this way, so the story was changed so that they would eat the rabbits that were too old to use instead.
