YMMV: Code Monkeys
  • Creator's Pet: Todd, especially in Season 2, where if the episode didn't center on him, then the B-Plot did, except the episodes and plots that center on him are not flattering in the slightest.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Black Steve.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Todd's character. He is overweight, is sexually depraved enough to do things to dolls, was revealed by his brother to have a form of Autism, and the final episode had him attempting (and failing) to pitch a Sonic the Hedgehog Expy. It's like they took Chris-Chan's life and put it on the screen.
  • Take That, Scrappy!: The fact that Todd is the show's Butt Monkey is enough.
  • Tear Jerker: the episode with Todd's brother. Seeing how much he cares about Todd is both this and a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming. The biggest Tear Jerker moment in the episode is when Todd's brother talks about how twisted their mother has made Todd and tells the Game A Vision staff to be kind to Todd. It's an even bigger Tear Jerker in that you know it will only get worse.
    • This show is also noted as a key turning point for G4. Let's see... an animated sitcom about video gaming, that brought in 20 million viewers in the first season alone, on the video game network? Why keep that on the air?
  • The Scrappy: Mary for being a whiny feminist, and Todd for his Small Name, Big Ego.
  • The Woobie: Jerry. He even cries.
