YMMV: Choice of Games

  • Anticlimax Boss: In Slammed!, Paul Prototype can be knocked out with one punch in the championship match at Ring of Valhalla.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: In Choice of Zombies, When Michael/Michelle/Brian/Bonnie suggests you and your group to abandon Justin/Jennifer who has very serious Heroic BSOD moment. If you refuse the advice.... and snap by saying that Michael/Michelle/Brian/Bonnie should feel ashamed (and eventually does) for even suggesting that. Then, the said jerkass character will look on you with newfound respect, and your other companions (especially the kid Kayden) will start looking you like you're a hero.
  • Fridge Horror: If you've done everything as well as it's possible to do in Heroes Rise, things have worked out mostly okay at the end. Your identity has been outed to the world, and your elderly caretaker is shaken up and somewhat injured, but otherwise all right for now. You've been offered a place to stay in the tower of the local super team, and wound up with a significant other. That sounds all well and good, but we know any stories that start like that?
  • Jerk Sue: Black Magic in Heroes Rise, where they get to screw around with your head freely and pull you around, and yet your character is still attracted to them. Exaggerated in the pre-patch version, where your character had no choice at all in the attraction and was railroaded into having sex with them; this was changed after several complaints and you now have the option to hate BM from the start.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The unavoidable fate of Miss Artillery in the third Heroes Rise game, Herofall. She's trapped in a tube, with acid piped in at the bottom, slowly dissolving and melting alive, screaming all the while as she sinks deeper and deeper until she's completely dissolved. Just...holy slugger.
  • One True Threesome: The narration in Choice of Intrigues indicates that the player character feels threatened by Adelita, the Monarch's latest squeeze. The playerbase responded by suggesting the obvious solution.
  • The Woobie: The humiliated Samantha Withers.
    • Torres in Choice of Romance. He/she knows perfectly well that he/she is nothing but a Meal Ticket and gives a poignant speech about it.
      • Only when he loves you and sadly forgives your cheating with the king. When he calls you a whore but isn't above parasiting on your gifts, he is just a hypocrite.
    • Jerkass Woobie: From the player's point of view, Princess Juanita in Choice of Intrigues. Yes, she's rude to you and schemes to become heir at your child's expense, but given her status as The Unfavorite, can you really blame her?
