YMMV: Puppetmaster
  • Ear Worm: The opening theme from the first movie.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Torch is awfully popular for how few his appearances are.
    • Blade is also very popular. Some fans even consider him the Puppet Master mascot.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: Puppet Master: The Legacy (See They Just Didn't Care below) and Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys.
  • Narm Charm: A part of why it has so many sequels... the cheesy effects and cheesier acting are just too endearing to hate.
  • Nausea Fuel: Anything involving Leech Woman. The first movie cements how disgusting her power is.
  • Special Effects Failure: The quality, and look, of the puppets in the movies after 5 take a nosedive as the series progresses.
    • In one scene of Retro Puppet Master, you can hear the servo motors coming from the puppets.
  • They Just Didn't Care: Puppet Master: The Legacy is 9 minutes of new footage adrift in 62 minutes of stock footage that sloppily tries to connect all the movies in one continuity.
