YMMV / Owlboy

  • Awesome Music: Just check out that trailer!
  • Alternate Character Interpretation:
    • Dirk. Was his aggression towards Alphonse throughout the game rooted entirely in his betrayal of Molstrom, or was he upset that his only friend had left him? Was it both?
  • I Am Not Shazam: The main character's name is not Owlboy, it's Otus. The "owlboy" the title refers to is actually Solus.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Otus's dream sequence at the beginning of the game, where he's hounded by shadows.
  • The Woobie: Otus. From the beginning of the game, he is abused by his caretaker and is convinced that he is a disappointment to his whole village. It never really gets better for him, either.
    • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Solus, whose timidity and inability to trust anyone else causes him to take the task of saving his world upon himself. He does this deceiving pirates into gathering the needed relics for him, but before they are ready to use, the pirates devastate the capital, Advent, resulting in the death of dozens.
