YMMV: Rocket Monkeys

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Wally and Gus are either goofy idiots or unlikeable retards.
  • Designated Hero: Wally and Gus are the supposed protagonists, despite constantly leaving all kinds of mayhem in their wake. Even the show itself does not readily classify them as heroes.
  • Iron Woobie: Lord Peel. He was driven to villainy only because the Rocket Monkeys kept attacking him and ruined his life. Every time he distinctly tells them he's not a banana, it never seems to seep through their thick skulls. The only crimes he commits involve trying to get rid of or get away from Wally and Gus. And he's supposed to be the bad guy for it?
  • Jerkass Woobie: Lord Peel. See above.
  • Rooting for the Empire: Lord Peel could especially fall under this in episodes like "There's No Business Like Monkey Business".
  • The Scrappy: Wally and Gus, due to their mind-numbing stupidity. It's a special feat that even the show itself considers them bad characters.
    Intro: "They're rocket monkeys! Monkeys in space! They try to be heroes but they're easy to replace! They're not the brightest, they're not the best, they're not the coolest, they also have bad breath!"
  • Ugly Cute: Most of the characters could fall under this.
  • The Woobie: YAY-OK. He dreams to be a monkey like his two team mates, but is sometimes taken for granted. Also his father is a criminal.
