YMMV: Half-Life: Full Life Consequences
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The fight with the GlaDos in the final chapter, it happens suddenly when John is fighting when he is dragged into the chamber and then it is forgotten as John Freeman goes to continue his assault with the Combines like the event never occurred after GlaDos is destroyed.
  • Cliché Storm
  • Crazy Awesome: John Freeman.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: "I have to kill fast and bullets too slow!"
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Many, but special mention must go to "BECAUSE YOU ARE HEADCRAB ZOMBIE"
    • but this is our house :(
    • "DARKMAN YOU WILL SUFFAR!"
    • "Combine came and put science in me and made me live and strong and big now!"
    • The science flew off Gordon Freeman's face.
    • Pants.
    • "I know bro but you are hero" John Freeman said back to comfart Gordon." In Djy's vid, the actual fart during that line and the face John does is priceless!
    • HE SCREAMED AT THE TOP OF LUNGS!
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming - "And it gave them hop!"
  • Ear Worm: WEPON! WEPON! WEWEPON PON WEPONWEPON!
  • Fanon: QuarterLife: Origin of Doom, a FanFiction.net-published story, was written to tie Quarter-Life: Halfway To Destruction to Full Life Consequences as a prequel. Because it was written after the fact, much foreshadowing of the events of Hero Beggining occurs in this story.
  • God-Mode Sue: Is there anything John Freeman can't do? Other than making the hug tower not explod.
    • He also failed to rescue Gordon Freeman or prevent him from becoming zombie goast, and to save his wife from being shot in head.
    • Despite his glaring Sue-ness, him and the story he's in are so ridiculous that he still comes out as Crazy Awesome.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Zombie goasts becomes more hilarious when you watch Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, specifically, episode 8's first segment "...Of the Dead" features... Zombified Ghosts.
    • At some point during Free Man, John Freeman goes on killing Combines with bear hands! (This was even noted with a clever Visual Pun on Djy1991's machinima) Some years later, a new pair of "boxing gloves" for the Heavy were added into Team Fortress 2: They are a pair of severed bear hands!
  • Memetic Mutation: Several lines, such as the quotes on the quotes page.
  • Narm Charm - look at all the moments of Awesome- and the tear-jerkers, for that matter.
    John Freeman: Gordon Freeman is now these hands... i must kill the next boss and live up to full-life consequences!
    John Freeman: These birds don't have to see Gordon Freeman yet. It's not time.
    John Freeman: I WILL KILL THE BOSS AND GORDON FREEMAN WILL BE HAPPY SOUL!
  • So Bad, It's Good - Djy1991's machinima takes this trope to "So Bad Its Awesome"
  • Tear Jerker - John Freeman, Saver of Humens
    • Gordon Freeman's really actually final last death.

In the machinimas:

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: In the Djy version, the Dark Man is the same person as revived Gordon Freeman. In the Gaz version, they're two separate people.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Plenty in the original writings, but the machinimas take this trope to extremes.
    • In the Djy1991 adaptation of Free Man, they added in a scene that lasts from 6:12 to 11:38, where they deviate from the original, making John Freeman into a badass god figure by showing him fighting through a number of memetastic locales. While it was praised by some viewers, others felt that it added nothing to the video.
      • Within that segment, while most of the fighting was more or less in line with the rest of the story and John Freeman's larger-than-life image, there is an indisputable BLAM when the G-Man, who has a Hitler mustache, shows up and kicks John Freeman into the sky, before turning into Saxton Hale. John Freeman goes flying over various locales from assorted Source-based games such as cp_gravelpit, ctf_convoy_v2 and gm_bigcity, ultimately landing in GLaDOS's main chamber, where John Freeman gets into a one-sided argument with her, blows her up and arrives back at the Citadel just in time to see the humens at safe place before the Citadel explods.
      • "the countrysides were nice and the plants were singing and the birds and the sun was almost down from the top of the sky."
  • Colbert Bump: Regular Ordinary Swedish Meal Time favourited the Djy1991 video. They would.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: "Chateau" from The Matrix (Djy1991 version) or "Gonna Fly Now" from Rocky III (Gaz version) during the Grand Finale.
    • Not to mention Djy1991's excellent use of "A Kaleidoscope of Mathematics" from A Beautiful Mind in their final scene.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The DJY adaptation of Hero Beggining manages to make Henry Freeman's Mom's death HILARIOUS.
  • Memetic Badass: John Freeman. He can pick up and throw a train, honest!
  • Narm: Several otherwise well-done bits in Gaz6231's Free Man film are ruined by the in-game death reports.
    • "I know bro but you are hero" John Freeman said back to comfart Gordon.
  • Special Effects Failure: The portals in the Gaz6321 version are a dumpster and a truck.
  • Tear Jerker: Gaz6231's take on the death of Gordon Freeman. The music just makes the scene work.
