    Fanfic 

YMMV tropes for the fanfic Infinity:

  • Ron the Death Eater: A lot of reviewers for the story seem to like painting Amaterasu as a viler villain than she really is. Granted, her habits don't exactly help, but even Signum, the most frequent target of them, can't admit she fully hates her. By contrast, not as many people seem to mind Susanoo and Tsukiyomi, even though they have just as many issues.
    • To be fair to reviewers, Susanoo and Tsukiyomi have not yet harmed outsiders except their intended target, and don't use excessive force at the drop of hat. Well, excessive that could harm Innocent Bystanders, that is. To be equally fair though, the only people Amaterasu has intentionally tried to kill were trying to capture her, and the only one she's critically injured was a TSAB agent, that can't exactly be called an Innocent Bystander.
  • Tear Jerker
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: As more than one reviewer noted.
    • Section Black and the Combat Cyborgs. An extensive shadow group within the TSAB, originating from almost its founding supported by Body Horror And I Must Scream robots. It would have been a great way to examine the darker side of the TSAB and turn the fic to surreal horror and Humans Are the Real Monsters. Instead the combat cyborgs are fairly easily defeated, the group vanishes halfway through the fic and all of it is disbanded (making everyone Karma Houdinis) after the case.
    • The Twilight Empire. The most powerful magical Empire ever with a rich, complex history and unprecedented techomagical development. It vanishes back into the void with most of its history and culture unexamined. Yuuno must be frothing at the mouth.
      • Related to this, Enlil declares war on the TSAB. The resulting civil war caused by a reborn Empire backed by the height of magical technology and essentially a Deathstar could have been its own series.

    Marvel Comics event 

YMMV Tropes for the Marvel Comics event Infinity:

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Among Thanos' lieutenants, Corvus Glaive seems to have gained a great deal of popularity.
  • Les Yay: Leinil Yu draws every scene with Ex Nihila and Captain Marvel like if former was sexually molesting the latter.
  • So Okay, It's Average: While it's less divisive than Age of Ultron, the event was felt by many to be not as remarkable as it should have been.
  • Strangled by the Red String: The out-of-nowhere pairing of Cannonball and Izzy Kane, the new Smashernote  Up to that point, the two of them had only been in a handful of group shots together and hadn't shared so much as an on-screen conversation.

    Tabletop Game 
  • Demonic Spiders: TAGs, when you lack hackers, ADHLor heavy missile launchers, are capable of taking down whole lists alone. The Chaksa Auxiliars with Neuro-Cinetics and Heavy Machine Guns in Tohaa lists will give you more problems than their elite units simply by shooting the crap out of your units in your own turn. SASCRAPs/Caterans in New Caledonian Highlander lists effectively play a shell game, is it a sniper that can pick off my tough elite units or is it an SAS commando ready to gun down your cheerleaders.
