YMMV: Happy Wheels

  • Acceptable Targets: The fanbase sees Justin Bieber like this. If a "kill the ragdolls" level has Irresponsible Dad's son hanging around as a target, expect him to be labeled "JB".
    • "JB" is also often used as a synonym for a bad player. Often there would be levels where the map maker writes sarcastic comments if someone dies in an early spot or an easily-avoidable hazard. Example: "Even Justin Bieber could make that jump." or "If you lose, you're a Justin Bieber."
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Some of the more creative user-made levels, including one where the Wheelchair guy is just one of several clones, and one where the Irresponsible Dad is smaller than a mouse.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: You'd think general dismemberment of handicapped elders, children (and one toddler), and even Santa Claus would be nothing but horribly outrageous, but this game manages to go so far with it that it becomes hilarious.
  • Demonic Spiders: Any hazard could be made deadly with clever placement, but special mention goes to the Harpoon Gun. It has perfect accuracy, lightning speed, piercing ability, and is heavy. This combination means you'll be lucky if it doesn't make you literally explode on impact. Even if you survive, an anchored one in your body means you might as well restart; it's near impossible to get free. It's no wonder that most obstacle course levels have the harpoons nerfed.
  • Game Breaker: Though it takes practice, it is possible to fly using the Wheelchair Guy's rocket. Needless to say, this makes clearing most levels very easy.
    • The Irresponsible Dad can do it too, to some extent. Mashing the lean keys will have him glide for as long as you can keep it up.
    • Beating the "It Keeps Happening" level is ridiculously easy if you're playing as Pogostick Man. Just jump upwards and the finish line is right there.
    • Helicopter Man can straight up fly, and therefore has maneuverability incomparable to other characters.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Irresponsible Dad is without a doubt the most popular of the current characters, likely due to being a favorite of many of the Let's Players who have taken a shot at the game. It doesn't hurt that he's tailor-made for Video Game Cruelty Potential due to his son.
  • Good Bad Bug: Though some of said bugs fall into this category.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: One popular level was called "Jurassic World" before the actual film was announced.
  • Most Annoying Sound: Pogostick Man's over-the-top screams of pain can be funny at first, but when he constantly makes them it's unbearable. Expect this to happen if you're going through the stage with a blade weapon stuck in his body.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: The victory sound. Dun dun NUUUUUUUH! (pssshh)
  • Nightmare Fuel: A rather major case of YMMV, as to some people all of the death and dismemberment in the game can come off as more disturbing than funny.
    • Some of the user-made levels can also contain plenty of nightmarish content, such as the ones made by user "kirbypwnage" (especially his "Haunted Mansion" levels).
  • The Scrappy: The Explorer Guy is one of the least popular characters in the game. Very few fans like him because he's difficult to control, very top-heavy and prone to falling over, can't jump, and a relatively useless special ability (see This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman). It's very rare seeing players pick this guy or there being maps where he's the set character.
  • Spiritual Licensee: Basically Trials' R-rated, drug-addicted stepbrother.
