YMMV / Les Nombrils

  • Base-Breaking Character: Albin. Some fans like him and think he brings out the best in Karine, while others think he's a controlling bastard and Karine's change wasn't really her own choice.
  • Breather Episode: Les Vacheries des Nombries in general, which started right after volume 7.
  • Broken Base: Some think Karine was right to dump Dan because he didn't trust her, but others argue that with all the evidence against Karine as well as Dan being manipulated by his friends and Melanie it was understandable that he wouldn't trust her.
  • Cross the Line Twice: Some of Vicky and Jenny's antics are downright homicidal. This is played for laughs...usually.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Karine gets hers at the end of volume 4, Obfuscating Stupidity to pull a Batman Gambit that finally exposes Melanie's true self for the world to see.
  • Hollywood Homely: Karine is nicknamed 'The Walking Noodle' and is used by her friends to make them look prettier in comparison, while her design is pretty cute. Once she gets a more flattering wardrobe and haircut, along with some self confidence, she becomes almost as sought after as Vicky and Jenny.
  • I Knew It!: A real life and in-universe example in volume 5. Both Dan and some readers suspected Albin was manipulating Karine. Albin convinced Dan he was wrong, but in the end it turned out these suspicions were justified.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Vicky in later albums. Volume 7 pushes Jenny there to, though its almost entirely her own fault.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • Borders on Out-of-Character Moment but one gag in the first album involves Vicky trying to drown the girlfriend of a hot lifeguard.
    • A gag has John John threatening to drop Dan down a busy overpass by holding him by the ankle over said overpass, apparently because Jenny complained that he tried to have Karine spend less time with her.
    • Melanie may have crossed it when she tried to frame Karine for trying to poison her, just to keep her from exposing her lies.
  • Tear Jerker: Pretty much the entire last ten pages of tome 7.
  • The Woobie: Karine
