YMMV / MediEvil

  • Awesome Music: Practically the entire soundtrack to each game.
  • Breather Level: The Entrance Hall, especially since it falls between the very difficult Ghost Ship and Time Device levels.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming:
    • Dan finally earning his place in the Hall of Heroes if he collects all the Chalices, complete with his own statue, and the gargoyle at the front door who was previously mocking him now congratulating him for his accomplishments.
    • Pretty much everyone in general going from mocking Dan for being such a failure at the beginning of the game to eventually putting their trust in him and wishing him luck in the final confrontation.
  • Ear Worm: Any music you happen to hear during the game can be considered this.
  • Fridge Logic: How did a guy who was such a wimp when he was alive suddenly become so good at fighting when he's revived as one of the undead?
    • What about the enemies Dan faces in the Pool of the Ancient Dead? Are his own countrymen from the great battle a century ago among the armored corpses he now has to put to rest again?
  • Nightmare Fuel: Humorous as the original game is, it still involves battling undead/demonic enemies. Special mention goes to the scarecrows.
    • The Sleeping Village level. The first half of the stage is populated with all the townsfolk turned insane due to Zarok's black magic. Which includes the children. A chunk of Dan's time will be spent running from axe-wielding, constantly-giggling girls.
    • The Inside The Asylum level has the madmen running wild and Laughing Mad as they try to attack you.
  • That One Achievement: Getting the Chalice in the Lake, which requires you to completely ignore the warning given to you at the start of the level and trigger all of the green eyeballs, forcing you into fights with extremely resilient enemies. And you have to kill every single one of them personally, as knocking them into the lake will only make them jump back out. Sometimes. Depending on where they are, they'll just disappear and force you to start the entire level over again. So don't do it by accident (which is surprisingly easy to do,) or accidentally destroy any of the green eyeballs before they've summoned enemies.
    • If you haven't used them all up by that point, The Lake is where the Chicken Drumstick shines, because it can take out more than one of these enemies with just a single use, and converts them into health at the same time!
  • That One Level: "The Ghost Ship" can seriously drive you crazy with its tricky jumps and unhelpful camera angles.
  • Ugly Cute: Fortesque may be a one-eyed skeleton with no lower jaw, but he still has a pretty charming design (especially in later titles where he's more expressive.)
