YMMV: Deep Fear
  • Alas, Poor Scrappy: Mooky is very obnoxious, but he didn't deserve to die like that...
  • Awesome Music: It's from the guy who did the soundtracks of Ghost in the Shell, Dark Water, and Maison Ikkoku, among other things.
  • It's Easy, so It Sucks: The game's main gameplay flaw, being that ludicrous amounts of health and ammo pickups are thrown at the player, combined with the fact that the monsters are generally very slow, also combined with the fact that the weapons available are very powerful means that the game generally has very little challenge to it.
  • Memetic Mutation: It's been shilled by Segata Sanshiro!
  • Narm: The voice acting. All of it.
    • John's particular goofy way of catching a key card in one cutscene.
    • There's also the matter of the mutated cow near the end of the game.
  • Never Live It Down: How Commander Clansy sees his demotion from a submarine commander to leader of an underwater base. The trouble is that his "one mistake" was torpedoing a passenger ship full of civilians in contested waters before a war. In context, his "punishment" was incredibly light. Worse, judging by the way he took it, he views himself as the bigger victim than the people he killed.
  • So Bad, It's Good: The voice acting. Dubois gets a shout out in-particular with his shrill falsetto fusion between Dame Edna and a South African!
  • Shipping Goggles: If Deep Fear was bigger than Final Fantasy, than perhaps John and Gena would qualify. If she didn't transform into an atomic beauty to defend a monkey that is!
  • Tear Jerker:
  • The Scrappy: Mooky.
  • They Just Didn't Care: The translators didn't even bother to check how to spell certain names (such as "Clancy", which is spelled as "Cransy", or "STORAGE" as "STRAGE"), as it's apparent in the credits.
  • Uncanny Valley: The FMV cutscenes, full stop. The characters' facial features just This is compounded by their unnatural, jerky movements and gestures.
