YMMV: Robots

  • Awesome Music: Tom Waits' "Underground" from Swordfishtrombones for when we first see the Chop Shop.
    • Herb Copperbottom's robotic rendition of "Get Up Offa That Thing". Especially the part where Diesel is given - by Bigweld himself - a custom part that gives him James Brown's voice.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Domino surfing! Though it did allow Bigweld to make an entrance worthy of Willy Wonka himself.
    • Actually, this serves to highlight the significance of his character: for the past few year's he's been engaged in activities completely irrelevant to the world-at-large.
    • Possibly counts as a Big Lipped Alligator Moment as well: in the climatic battle, Fender defeats all the remaining minions while dancing to "Baby One More Time".
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: A crew consisting largely of robots, a character named Ratchet, the protagonist walking around with a wrench, the work having loads of Getting Crap Past the Radar, and references to Britney Spears. Hmm...sounds familiar?
  • It Was His Sled: Madame Gasket is Ratchet's mother.
  • Moment Of Awesome: When Rodney arrives at Bigweld's house, he gets so excited by what he sees. He then decides to knock over a line of dominoes, as Bigweld did in his show. These dominoes progressively increase in size, until one massive domino topples over, plunging the entire room into a sea of black and white, with dominoes large enough to surf on.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The fates of anyone caught by the Sweepers.
    • Madame Gasket could count, especially her first appearance in the Chop Shop. And that song the Chop Shop robots sing while working.
    • Also, some of the faces Ratchet makes are somewhat unsettling. Though that may just be me. And of course Gaskets gotta be included.
  • The Woobie: Rodney in some scenes.
