YMMV: Robot Monster
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: As inappropriate as it sounds, the Professor's speech at Carol's funeral is one of the funniest parts of the film.
    • The little boy is hilariously stoic and indifferent at his own sister's funeral. The fact that this is All Just a Dream of his is a little unsettling.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Really, Ro-Man is the only reason anyone likes and remembers this film.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Attempted with Ro-Man murdering a little girl. However, that girl is so incredibly annoying that it counts as his Crowning Moment of Awesome.
  • Narm Charm: Pretty much the whole thing.
  • Nightmare Retardant: How could we ever think of Ro-Man as scary?
  • Padding: Ro-Man goes up a hill. Ro-Man goes down a hill. This repeats for ten minutes.
  • So Bad, It's Good: One of the classic examples.
  • Special Effects Failure: The best effects the movie has is the "Billion Bubble Machine" (which had its own credit) and using a negative of the film spliced in at certain parts.
    • Not to mention the toy rocket with a sparkler in its butt and the very obvious hand spinning it around in circles.
