YMMV / Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion

  • Game Breaker: Kevin 11 in Story Mode, due to having powerful, spammable attacks, and if you grind, his Punch Time Explosion pretty much ensures that any enemy onscreen will not be onscreen anymore.
  • Goddamn Bats: Many, if not all the enemies can knock you back into places you do not want to go.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Cartoon Network at one point had Sweepstakes for getting a copy of Super Smash Bros., called the "Smash Hit Giveaway" (Can be seen here). Several years later, they create this game.
    • The game was released on both the Wii and 3DS. A few years later, Nintendo would do the same thing with Smash 4.
  • Love It or Hate It: That's generally how it goes with this game. Either you love it because it's a fighting game that mixes Cartoon Network classics, or you hate it because you think it could've been better, and it left out Finn and Jake, Courage and the Eds.
  • Mondegreen:
    • When Aku gets KO'd, he sounds like he just swore.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
  • So Okay, It's Average:
    • The game was released to rather mixed to negative reviews, due to the flunky gameplay and the various in-game glitches. The reviews to the Updated Re-release seem to be a bit more favorable.
  • They Just Didn't Care:
    • Most of the replacement voices sound nothing like the originals. Though this is no longer the case for XL. Most characters would be receiving their original VAs, but not everyone.
    • While really minor, Young Ben's Down-Special, which is Cannonbolt, uses the sequel look, even though this is pre-timeskip Ben.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: It's not uncommon for people to compare the story mode to that of a fanfic. We have the protagonists of many, many Cartoon Network shows, fighting all of the villains who teamed up, but the villains make some... Rather questionable area decisions (Vilgax in Marzipan City, for one), along with the reveal that the villain of the game is the remote control of the Narrator, which, while done in the manner of many of Cartoon Network's signature comedies, is entirely out of place in a Crisis Crossover, and one could argue that any of the villains in the game could have been better as the Big Bad. Though others find it an appropriate villain considering that the Narrator is implied to be Space Ghost, and his remote would be a fitting thing to link everyone since it was his show that kicked off Cartoon Network's original programming.
