YMMV: Max Steel
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Max's catchphrase is "Going Turbo!"
- Nightmare Fuel: Psycho's arm has a creepy sort of casualness to it given the size and functionality of the thing. He also takes his face off. Oh and the face underneath? It looks like a mix between The Joker and a Terminator.
- Viewers of sufficient age will notice immediately that L'Etranger is meant to be a sexual predator.
- Max's infestation is pretty damn freaky.
- Visual Effects of Awesome: While it hasn't aged well, the CGI was impressive for the time; the series moved to Cartoon Network because they were willing to continue funding for the third season as-is, whereas the WB wanted to switch it to traditional animation.
