YMMV: Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys
open/close all folders
- Alternative Character Interpretation: Which is not helped by the massive amounts of Grey and Gray Morality which abound.
- Crazy Awesome: The whole concept, but Korse's way of raising his gun after coming out of the elevator in the "SING" video comes to mind.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Dr. Death Defying and Show Pony. Possibly the Little Girl as well.
- In the comics, Red and Blue, the two porno droids, are getting a lot of fame for their tragic story.
- Epileptic Trees: This place has coverage on what's been going on.
- Fan Nickname: For Korse, "Sir Bald of Evil". Draculoid tends to get shortened to "Drac". Dangercar for the Trans-Am.
- The entire universe seems to have been dubbed the Dangerverse.
- Harsher in Hindsight: In the wake of My Chemical Romance's break-up, the following lines from Goodnite, Dr. Death are particularly harsh:
You may be goneBut out here in the desertYour shadow lives on without you
- Ho Yay: Many fans interpret the relationship between Dr. Death Defying and Show Pony this way. Also, in the song "Save Yourself, I'll Hold Them Back", the lyrics, "I'm the only friend that makes you cry/ you're a heart attack in black hair dye/ so just save yourself and I'll hold them back tonight," are sung. Considering Jet Star and the Kobra Kid are already dead at this point, and considering that the lyrics are being sung by Gerard Way, whose alter-ego is Party Poison, and considering Frank Iero's character Fun Ghoul has dyed-black hair, this is interpreted as ho-yay between Party Poison and Fun Ghoul by some fans.
- Narm Charm: The "Na Na Na" video and "Art is the Weapon" trailer.
- “Stop Having Fun” Guys: The sentiment of a lot of fans (especially on LJ) in response to the "shenanigans" the band did before the album's release, directed towards both the band and the fans who want to actually participate in the shenanigans.
The Album and Music Videos
- Ear Worm: Where do we start? How about here?
- Tear Jerker: "SING", "The Only Hope for Me is You", "The Kids From Yesterday", and "Summertime".
- Specifically whenever they mention loved ones that they had to leave behind.
- True Art Is Angsty: Not so much anymore. "Na Na Na" anyone? True art is apparently a (ridiculously fun) weapon.
- Possibly played straight in the video for "SING".
- Subverted with "Vampire Money." Based on interviews given about the song, it could be a rejection of all the angst that's crept into pop culture via Twilight.
- Viewer Gender Confusion: Vaya and Vamos, from the Ultra V's. Are they boys? Skinny girls? It doesn't help that they're also very effeminate.
- Tear Jerker: Blue and Red's misfortunes.
- The Girl can't remember the original Killjoy's faces.
- Volume's dead. He was relieved because he was tired of hiding.
- Cheri Cola and his guilt over failing to help the Killjoys save the Girl, noting that he, being there, could've probably keep the boys alive to these days.
- Korse's boyfriend getting killed by BLI. Something about seeing the formerly cold-as-ice Exterminator cradling his dead lover in his arms with tears pouring down his face is truly heartbreaking, and drives home that he is not the same man who killed the Killjoys years before.
