YMMV / Bob and George

  • Archive Panic: It's a daily comic that ran for 7 years. There are 2658 strips in all. You do the math. (And that doesn't even count the numerous fan comics hosted on the site.)
  • Ass Pull: Many of the powers and mergings that come about seem to be this, but the Author had it all planned out before, and it is funny.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The Author mentions that Mynd seems to be rather popular among readers.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • In the Mega Man 5 storyline, Stone Man and Wave Man merge into a (quick-drying) Concrete Man. Now fast-forward four years; Capcom makes Mega Man 9, and one of the new Robot Masters is... Concrete Man.
    • Also, in the Mega Man 4 storyline, Dr Wily is watching a soap opera, and the two main characters are called... Brad and Angelina. This was written while Brad Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston.
    • As admitted in the commentary, the line "Pudding Man is going all Bill Cosby on Flame Man's ass" has remarkably different connotations after the relentless accusations of sexual assault fell into the media spotlight.
  • Idiot Plot: Of course, the ones responsible always are idiots.
  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny The author admits to wincing at this strip, even though he knows it's the first use, because it's been done so often since.
  • Tear Jerker: The Cataclysm and how everyone except Proto Man dies.
    • The Epilogue. Everyone in the Classic period would have died somehow except George, The Author, Ran and Proto Man. George would have been back in his dimension though and he never got to see his friends again and Bob was finally killed at some point. The Author made things worse by giving Ran a more powerful Cossack Buster and because it led to Zero finding Dr. Light, Dr. Light was killed. The Author would then turn into the Shadowy Author and spend the rest of his days blaming himself for the deaths of everyone, as would Proto Man. At least that's how it would have happened had Zero not mentioned that Dr. Wily would be killed by him.
  • This Is Your Premise on Drugs: Bob and George is Megaman after a long bender.
    • Quick Man is Cut Man and Elec Man's love child on crack.
  • The Woobie: George. He gets trapped in the Mega Man dimension that the Author runs, he gets kidnapped and tied to a ceiling for six months, has Bob for a brother and just goes through a lot of hell throughout the events of the comic.
