YMMV / Pastamonsters

  • Acceptable Targets: Furries, SJ Ws, the Alt-Right and celebrities.
  • Base-Breaking Character: Jeff is either loved because his random and stupid antics keep the show entertaining or hated for being an Ax-Crazy Psychopathic Manchild and abusing his surrogate daughter for his own amusement.
  • Designated Hero: Due to the general morality, this is to be expected. The Proxies themselves are Jerkass serial killers who torment and murder humans for their own gain. The only reason they are considered heroes at all is because, well, they are the main characters.
  • Creepy Awesome:
    • Nearly every single Proxy.
    • Zalgo post-season 2.
  • Evil Is Cool:
    • Zalgo in the "Legends of the Multiverse" 5-parter. He's practically unstoppable.
    • Mancala is a colossal dick, but his role in the story is held up as an example of how a relatively minor villain can be just as scary and terrifying as the main antagonist. His Creepy Monotone and awesome combat skills certainly helps.
  • Ho Yay: Jeff and BEN in the dubbed versions.
  • Memetic Molester: BEN due to his perverted and creepy attitude towards Jeff. In one instance, it's implied BEN drugged Jeff and fondled his unconscious body.
  • Growing the Beard: Most post Season 2 episodes. Notably "The Chain Mail", which shows that the web comic can indeed have emotional depth, intense action, and character development.
    Jeff: (in his sleep) No, BEN, lower...
    • Later:
    Ms. P: It may be incredibly unstable and probably won't work in the sunlight.
    BEN: Just like Jeff's sex life.
    Jeff: Yeah, you would know wouldn't ya?
  • Moral Event Horizon: Let's see...
    • Let's not even start talking about Zalgo. By now, he's crossed the line so much naming all of it would earn this trope it's own page.
    • Jeff crosses it when he throws an already injured Smile under a bus so that the driver would pay for his injuries.
      • He crosses it again later when he tricks BEN into raping Ms. P.
      • He crosses it yet again when he nonchalantly murders a little boy who was riding his bike.
      • There's also a scene in which Smile casually walks into the living room and greets Jeff. How does he reply? He shoots him in the face of course!
    • Mancala crossed it when he tried to kill Sally, a five year old girl, just to spite BEN.
    • Enderman's attempted murder of Slenderman in "Stop in the Name of Hate" does it for some. It's not really the worst behavior he's ever demonstrated, but the rapt, gleefully anticipatory look on his face as he watches the life go out of Slenderman's eyes with accompanying flatline beep is creepy on a personal level that he doesn't often reach.
    • BEN crossed it "Be Careful What You Don't Wish For" when it's off-handedly implied he molested Sally and other toddlers in a kindergatren Sally from telling Ms. P.
    • Slenderman crossed it when
  • Ugly Cute:
    • Some people see Jeff as this.
    • Same for Mr. Widemouth.
  • The Woobie:
    • Mr. Widemouth. He used to be a noble human archaeologist with family and friends, but Zalgo massacred all of his loved ones, and condemned him to become a monstrous beast for all eternity. It's not helped by the sheer emotional trauma this dealt to him, causing him to lose all memory of his life and any dignity he had left.
    • Sally gets this treatment due to being an extreme Butt-Monkey.
    • All of Zalgo's children. These children were raised without any real love by their sociopathic Abusive Dad, who brainwashed and trained them (by very inhumane methods) to become warriors strong enough to conquer the multiverse. All but one of them (Slenderman) failed miserably and are killed at the hands of Zalgo, never experiencing any true happiness in their short lives.
    • Princess Atta. Her mother, father, uncle and pet... dog thing, were all brutally killed by Mancala (the dog simply For the Evulz}. By the end, her five year old brother is all she has left. Thankfully, her story concluded with a happy ending.
    • Andra and Damian. When Andra explains to X how they're trying to save their own planet from Zalgo's forces (unaware X himself is a minion of Zalgo himself), he mocks them for it, before sentencing them both to enslavement for life. But at least Slenderman rescued them in time so they could save their own planet.
