YMMV: Cooking Mama
  • Memetic Mutation: No, no, no! Please don't shake the baby!
  • Nightmare Fuel: Mama whenever you fail at a task. "Don't worry. Mama will fix it."
  • So Bad, It's Good: Not the games, but DEFINITELY the voice acting. Cooking Mama's voice is a Japanese person trying to speak English while adding an Italian twang... it gets some crazy results. ("I'll help you" sounds more like "Ahl-hev-buh-you", "Wonderful" sounds more like "Vundaherbuhl", etc.)
    • Averted in the European Spanish dub of Cooking Mama 3, since they bothered to find a good voice actress who speaks Spanish well, and sounding cuter to boot.
    • Also averted in the UK, where she has an English accent.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: When Mama speaks in anything that isn't bad, broken English, this is how fans react.
  • Unfortunate Implications: The series' focus on crafting, gardening, cooking, and babysitting have left some feminists a little perturbed, to say the least.
