YMMV: MyMusic
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Rayna tries getting Intern 2 to date her by saying "I'm risky! I'm underage!"
  • Dude, Not Funny!: There are people who don't find Idol's Cancer Dancers funny.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Scene is definitely the most popular character on the show among fans. Techno and Intern 2 are quite popular as well.
    • Just the entire character of Emo falls under this.
    • Rayna is a very popular character as well.
      • And let's not forget Gorgal, played by none other than Felicia Day.
    • Harley Morenstein plays Jesus for only one scene, but he's very funny.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: If the comments are anything to go by, Techno and Dubstep. They're not a couple, and while they kissed, they admitted they don't have any romantic feeling for one another.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Janet Varney, the voice of Korra, as a team building expert who fails to get the My Music staff to work together, is particularly hilarious in light of the events of Korra season 2.note  Even better, they'd outright name dropped TLOK earlier on in the second season of MyMusic.
  • Iron Woobie: Country. Throughout her season, she gets multiple limbs broken, out and out ignored at several points, and the other staff don't always acknowledge her as being one of them. She manages to keep her composure, while staying a nice person, for a ridiculously long time.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Hip-Hop. He's really a nerd, but owing to Indie's being a colossal Jerkass, he can't express himself.
    • Idol in Season 2. She's trying to desperately fit in, but realises too late that she almost alienated her friends for good.
  • Like You Would Really Do It: Sure, Fine Bros, you're really going to remove Intern 2 from the cast entirely. Sure enough, few fans were surprised when he started turning up again, albeit not in the office for the most part.
  • Moral Event Horizon: In the eyes of some fans, Indie comes close to it when he mocks Intern 2 even after he's left and is working in a supposedly bad job. It eventually gets to the point where the usual Extreme Doormat chooses to stand up to him, and his new place of work gets Indie arrested.
    • Jeff or Straight-Edge does cross it for real when he leaves Scene at the altar in their avatar wedding, after Nerdcore reveals he's cheating on her. It turns out his avatar is something of a murderous psychopath, too. This could all be put down to him just enjoying Video Game Cruelty Potential, but when he reveals that he just wanted to get into Scene's pants, and then outright ruins her hopes about a first kiss being wonderful, you're glad that he's leaving.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Harley Morenstein as Jesus.
    • Freddie Wong as DJ Elephant.
  • Replacement Scrappy:
    • Generally averted for Country, who replaced Idol, as she's seen as a refreshing change.
    • An interesting case with Jeff replacing Intern 2. He was seen as a great and wonderful character, until he ended up being the replacement for a large portion of the fanbase. Needless to say, what real fans he had soon ditched him when he crossed the Moral Event Horizon.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: It's fair enough to say that after Hip-Hop got some serious character development, he quickly became a liked character.
  • She Really Can Act: Lia Marie Johnson as Rayna.
    • Grace Helbig gets quite a few sad scenes in Season 2 which, if commenters are to be believed, actually made them cry.
  • Ship Tease: Techno and Dubstep. The fact that Tania Gunadi (Techno) fed Chris Clowers (Dubstep) a bit of her native Bahasa during the As Themselves interview only adds to it.
  • Tear Jerker: Idol's scene in which she leaves the company.
    • Intern 2 trying to say goodbye to everyone as Indie forces him to leave. His farewells to everyone else on The Mosh are quite heartbreaking as well.
    • Scene being dumped at the altar, then having her first kiss ultimately ruined. You'll really hate Straight-Edge after seeing her so upset.
  • What an Idiot: Sure, Indie, you're totally not going to get into any legal trouble by entering Intern 2's new workplace and threatening him, particularly when it's obvious how well liked he is and his very high position in the company. Predictably, this gets him arrested.
  • The Woobie: Intern 2 due to the amount of abuse he suffers.
    • Scene also after 4chan kills all her online avatars and she becomes distant and emotionless. Later, Indie stars bullying her in an effort to get her to choose between the company and school. On top of that, Jeff turns out to be real asshole and leaves her at the altar.
    • Rayna in season 2 is being neglected by Metal in favor of Tina and the new baby (and the remote controlling his video camera), slowly turning her into this.
    • Hip-Hop in Season 2 is upgraded from Jerkass Woobie into this.
