YMMV: Double The Fist
  • Acceptable Targets: The township of Kanangra, after they refuse to let the Fist Team film there. Also mimes, people who are weak.
  • Accidental Innuendo: In a behind the scenes feature on the DVD, Doug Bayne (Mephisto) suddenly realises that the show sounds like the title of a gay porno.
  • Crazy Awesome: Again, the entire main cast may qaulify, but Mephisto takes the cake. He snowboards using a dead snowboarder!
  • Creator's Pet: Played with Blue Womp. He's annoying and has Steve praising his skills like any good one. Eventually, however, Steve realises just how annoying he is and beats him to a pulp, and later finally kills him with a large cannon.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: For a series which some critics called 'mostly crap' and is considered by many non-fans to be forgettable, there were enough of these to make up its own page.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Has its own page.
  • Crowning Moment Of Heartwarming: In the final episode, Tara has forgiven Rod for the horrible things he has done to her after he hotwires her, finally giving her free will. She comes to his aid later on, but gets killed due to his own stupidity, and reverts into a Vending Machine. Rod is heartbroken, and accidentally hits the Sidekick button. The little Tara requests a mission, so he tells her to go out and be free. This would have truly been heartwarming, had he not forgotten that they were in the middle of a battlefield. Idiot.
    • The scene at the end of Bush Bash where the Fist Team watches on lovingly as Mephisto plants a tree.
      • Steve's motivation for saving the forest was not fueled by his quest for Fistworthiness, but instead a genuine want to save the forest.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Hero at Last.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Despite usually getting his comeuppance, Rod's rape attempts may leave a bad taste in your mouth...eww.
    • Womp apparently succeeds at doing so to two girls Rod rendered unconscious. In the Audio Commentary, the makers wonder if this makes Womp instantly unlikable.
    • Possibly the result of the girl failing to guess Steve's weight correctly in High School Challenge.
  • Ear Worm: "I see you, but you don't see me, your Picture Perfect, in my eyes."
  • Ho Yay: Steve and Womp. Pretty much stated in Series Two when Womp kisses him on the lips. It ends up saving Steve's life. Womp gets a shotgun to the head for it.
  • Narm: These are not professional actors.
  • Nightmare Fuel: In Fear Factory, Steve has released a series of flying sharks into the titular factory. Rod briefly abandons his partner, the only person who recognises how insane everything is, to impress her by defeating some evil force within another room. When he returns, he finds the sharks have eaten all her flesh, save for her head. I'm not sure if his casual reaction makes it worse or better.
    • The aforementioned Eat the Dog moment.
    • Mephisto in Wonderland moves is actually quite disturbing, funny as it is.
    • One might feel a bit disturbed realising how willing these guys are to avert Infant Immortality.
  • Seasonal Rot: Many people believe Series Two is this. As well as the fact that Steve becomes a Villain Protagonist in Series Two. Particulerly grating when you remember he made (but survived) a Heroic Sacrifice in Series One.
  • Squick: Rod's sexual lust. It even led to him writing a pop song about stalking a teenage girl. Apparently it was a success.
    • We may know what Tara did to Rod in House Party Challenge, but we wish we didn't.
  • The Woobie: Steve becomes this several times in Series Two. Ironically, twice after he rids himself of all weakness.
