YMMV / Fireball 20XL

  • Badass Decay: Happens to Sephiroth in The Rogues Gallery. He even complains about it himself.
  • Broken Pedestal: Anyone who looked up to Psyguy, now that his true nature has been revealed. Even other people associated with the site, such as Christopher "Kirbopher" Niosi, have been accused of being potentially abusive as a result of the callout; although thankfully in these secondary cases the accusations are not quite as bad.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: What if GG-Guys had lyrics... Courtesy of Brentalfloss.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse - Stick from The Scrambled Channel, among others, which somehow became the most popular character despite being an inanimate piece of wood.
  • Fandom Berserk Button:
    • Wil used to have an "idiots" page where he made fun of people who asked him Gannon Bannable questions in emails. One in particular is that there is no Chaos Diamonds 1 or 2. It's called Chaos Diamonds 3 because there are three Chaos Diamonds in the story.
    • OMA, meanwhile, will Gannon Ban anyone who asks what song Shadow was listening to in his short Flash movie Sonic Stereo. He got so many people emailing him asking (for the record, the song is "This Machine" by Julien-K, Team Dark's theme in Sonic Heroes) that it actually became a running joke on the site, and was even given a reference in the first episode of Psy's Sonic Bastardized Sonic OVA fandub.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Back in the day, there were a lot of people who portrayed Psyguy as a sort of Lovable Sex Maniac in fanart and the like as a joke. Now that who he really is is common knowledge, this art feels like a middle finger towards the people he's hurt, because while he's a sex maniac all right he's anything but lovable.
  • Internet Backdraft: There was a huge backlash after Bryon was accused of domestic abuse among other things.
  • Never Live It Down: As mentioned a couple of times here on TV Tropes, many members of the internet did not see Bryon in a positive light ever since stories about his abused exes, friends and associates began to crop up all over the web, leading to a Creator Breakdown on his part.
  • Tear Jerker: For many adults nowadays who are into webcomics, sprite, drawn, or even starting their own, websites like Fireball 20XL were what introduced them to this form of media. To know the website is no more along with its archive of many comics from long ago, it leaves a bit of nostalgic longing in the hearts of those of us who loved That's My Sonic when we were kids.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion:
    • Many readers at first thought that Mike (the former member responsible for In Wily's Defense) was female, due to having a female avatar.
    • Same for Noccifire. Several discovered he was male on his debut wha-chow appearance. He since changed his avatar.
    • Also, Jen. One issue of her comic had her addressing the numerous emails she got asking whether she was a guy or a girl.
