YMMV / Chaotic

  • Awesome Music: Chaotic has a surprisingly good ost that really fits the mood during the battle scenes. Songs like thisrealy make the scenes they're played in more intense. Special mention goes to the mugic which sound really good despite being seven notes each. There used to be a game that allowed you to play mugic notes, allowing you to hear the mugic not used in the show. Sadly, the shutdown of Chaotic means it and all the missing songs are seemingly lost forever.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: An interesting example, in that Perim in general is this. Fans enjoyed the matches in Chaotic, but generally preferred episodes focusing on Perim and the creatures, getting to know their stories, culture, personalities and just how Perim in general worked.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Takinom.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Wonder why the Vlaric Diamond and the Vlaric Shard are named that? Because Vlar is the first one to discover the attack amplifying properties of these crystals. Interestingly, this was a case of Fridge Brilliance in the universe and out of it.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Only the previous game, "Dracco Heads", was a minor hit in Denmark back around 2000-2001 after the Pokémon hype. And hasn't, other than that, surfaced enough for the vast majority of the gaming population to notice at all.
  • The Problem with Licensed Games: Chaotic: Shadow Warriors was a trainwreck compared to the actual online card game. Taking a page from the show you only played as Tom, never seeing any of the other main humans (outside of cutscenes in the DS version at least), your selection of creatures compared to the card game is a measily 40 or so and it HEAVILY favors using Overworlders over any other tribe; essentially defeating the purpose of the real game. The gameplay also went for a similar RPG approach as Yu-Gi-Oh! The Falsebound Kingdom, but unlike that game the overall gameplay was very clunky.
  • Tear Jerker: The last episode of "Secrets of The Lost City".
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The switch from the unique Adobe Flash animation to generic Anime style animation didn't go over well with the fans.
  • Ugly Cute: He'arring.
  • The Woobie: Hoton, just, Hoton.
