YMMV: MechQuest
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: not in game, but among the dev team: Planet 51 was created by Korin because it was his week to release an update...so he created that entire thing after locking the staff member who's ID is Warlic in a closet FOR FIVE DAYS.
    • Yup. See May 8
    • as well as The "Mantis Shrine" quest in the Planet Yokai questline.
  • Demonic Spiders: Vladic knights on necryptos. It is almost literally impossible to get past them without a vampire hunter mech. Whereas previously most other vampire mooks were difficult, but not impossible, Knights can nerf your damage down into the single digits. Any stronger and they would rightly qualify as a boss.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: J6 and Korin
  • Foe Yay: One Heroes' Heart Day event had a Shadowscythe Commander by the name of Medeia choose Major Braddock Steele as her mate. Un/fortunately, he rejects her stating that his true love is blowing up Shadowscythe.
  • Fridge Logic: Pizza Delivery involves piloting giant robots through suburbs. Cut to a scene of your mecha trampling parked cars on the way to your customer's house.
    • For bonus points, one of your periodic missions as a cop involves taking down pizza delivery guys who step on people's cars.
  • Game Breaker: The monthly mech from June of 2009, the Warbear, sounds like your average mech...until you check its stats on the forums and discover the damage bonuses on the arm and shoulder weapons. Level 20 and below: 250%, Highest verison: 350%, everything in between: 300%. Not to mention the head weapon will boost attack and accuracy by an additional 10% each turn for 4 turns. The level 20 version could easily beat 2 level 28 enemies in a row. It can beat extreme mode bosses at more than half health. It can win the effing Star Captain bonus challenge at level 25. And the body weapon does guaranteed critical hits.
    • Then again, almost all monthly mecha classify as this.
    • There's a reason the MQ fans are the only fans in existence that complain about the player equipment being too strong.
    • justified in several cases for example, the giant mech sized boombox, which came packaged with a CD with a bunch of in-game music on it, is scaled to your level, and is often more effective than most rear shoulders you can find at that level.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Queen Akana's face... (shivers)
