YMMV: Scare Tactics

YMMV tropes for the TV series Scare Tactics:

  • Dude, Not Funny!: You'll probably say this at one or two of the pranks they pull, as some of them honestly are more mean spirited than anything else, such as one where they convinced a woman she was going to be raped.
  • Memetic Mutation: The conjoined twin prank. EAT! EAT! EAT!
  • Narm: Due to an underwhelming victim reaction, inconsistent special effects, or both, suffice it to say that some of the pranks aren't quite as exciting to watch as others.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Some of the pranks (especially since Morgan became the host) will make you thankful you're only in the audience.
  • Paranoia Fuel: What if you're the next victim to be pranked? Your friends, your siblings, your own parents might be setting you up right now.
  • Recycled Script: They'll sometimes use a scenario they've done before but with new victims.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The fact that they replaced the hot young female host with an average looking guy might have had to do with the show's cancellation. On the other hand, Tracy Morgan becoming the host is why it started Growing the Beard.
