YMMV: Infinity
    open/close all folders 


YMMV tropes for the fanfic Infinity:

  • Designated Villain: Not so much in the story itself, but 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.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Some people feel this way about Amaterasu's behavior. It probably stems from how she's powerful enough to fight her opponents without needing to resort to lethal force in order to win, but does so anyway because life-or-death combat makes her sexually aroused.
  • Tear Jerker

    Marvel Comics event 

YMMV Tropes for the Marvel Comics event Infinity:

  • Breakout Villain: Among Thanos' lieutenants, Corvus Glaive seems to have gained a great deal of popularity.
  • Character Shilling: Infinity #5 has a sequence where a member of Shi-Ar Imperial Guard points out to Captain America that every world liberated from the Builders has taken up the Avengers banner as a sign of unity, due to the Avengers being so instrumental in turning the tide of the war. It wouldn't be so bad, if the Avengers weren't a group of 12 amongst several galactic empires.
  • 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.
  • Take That: Because Matt Kindt expressed disappointment that he couldn't use characters taken to Avengers Arena in The Hunt, people like to see events in third issue of that mini - characters screaming "this is hopeless!", as her group is fighting alone against Outriders, and two students from Braddock Academy, the same school most of Dennis Hopeless' Creator's Pets are from, being unceremonially killed - as a series of jabs at it. Not to mention that out of all schools which introduced new characters, the Braddock Academy is the only one to introduce two, intead of three characters, one of whom is Canadian.

    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.
