YMMV: Monty Oum

  • Awesome Animation: His bread-and-butter was this.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • Monty outright compared himself to Bruce Lee, quoting him about Power, Speed and Accuracy. Tragically, like Lee, he died barely into his 30's, and both due to allergic reactions.
    • At the end of Haloid, there was a bit of Self-Deprecation of himself passed out at his keyboard with the video in process on the screen, with *DIES in big red letters over it. Recently, when Renegades React did a reaction video for show, this brought them to a stunned silence.
    • His fans and friends' constant pleas for him to get some sleep take on a tragic turn now, considering how monstrously he must've pushed himself, and how sad it is that he's resting for good.
    • Monty once said "The only thing that stops us from doing the really cool things is...time." After his death, that statement has never been more true.
    • A few of the songs from RWBY (namely "Red Like Roses Part II", "Time to Say Goodbye", "Wings", "All Our Days", and "Die") become this due to his passing.
    • As does the scene in which Yang pleads with Blake to slow down and rest for her own sake and that of those who care about her.
    • The line "Even brilliant lights will cease to burn" in "This Will be the Day" also counts.
