YMMV / Axis of Time

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: When one of the surviving 2000s French sailors goes on a rampage to attempt to stop the Hawai'i bombings, his internal monologue says he found it cooler than "Halo 7". Flash forward nearly a decade later, and Halo 4, initially part of a trilogy, is going to become massively expanded to another series of games.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Lieutenant Ali Moertopo manages to talk his way out of execution and torture while in Japanese custody, and ends up becoming the governor of Indonesia, first under the Japanese, then under the Americans. While under the former's thumb, he secretly builds up an anti-Japanese guerrilla army to support the latter's invasion/liberation of the islands.
