YMMV: Divekick
  • Awesome Music: Dive Bar, JEO Main Stage, and New Angle Dojo. And especially Downworld. It's a shame the music is pretty quiet during matches.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: The characters of Mr. N and Alex Jefailey are incredibly mean-spirited and spiteful. Jefailey may be worse, given that Alex Jebailey effectively paid money to be insulted (at least he got a kick out of it).
  • Mexicans Love Speedy Gonzales: The fighting game community loves Divekick, largely for the down-to-the-essentials feel of it.
  • Periphery Demographic: It was designed as a parody of competitive fighting games. That said, it's also popular among competitive fighting game players due to being what a fighting game is meant to be (chess with reflexes) without the need to learn enormous combos to even be decent.
  • Suspiciously Similar Stage: Adding further to shout-out parallels between Kick and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is an entire stage filled with them. It's a basketball court, and the music that plays is an almost-but-not-quite a version of the show's famed intro song.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: As of late, there has been a growing Hatedom for the game, saying that it has become a joke that now takes itself too seriously. People have also said that this game would have been better if it were just Dive and Kick.
    • One of the loading screen tips lampshades this fact.
    "I liked this game better when Dive and Kick were the only two characters."
    • The drastic changes made to The Baz and S-Kill in Addition Edition were...controversial to say the least.
