YMMV: Smash Bros Lawl
  • Badass Decay: When Irate Gamer first appears, he trophies AVGN and summons the Game Genie to trophy the Nostalgia Critic as well. In his next appearance, he is shown running for his life and requiring assistance from Ganondorf.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: A lot of the chosen songs for the stages are nice. Brawl's good music is present as well.
    • This trope is theme of the Epic Sax Guy stage.
  • Crazy Awesome: Nicolas Cage, with more emphasis on "crazy".
  • Creator's Pet: Madotsuki gets to appears a lot in the videos. She gets to go on a Subspace Emissary stage, alone, in Adventure Mode, (Said stage being a dream, meaning there wasn't much of a point to it!) appears in parts of videos she doesn't really need to be at, (Like in JJJ's intro video where she did nothing but just stand there and Jonah's only line to her is "Oh, what is she, shy?" when noticing that she isn't saying anything) and when Hitler's Final Smash's shown in his own video, she completely dodges it.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Best Hercules is the most voted character in the 1 on 1 voting, followed by J Jonah Jameson, Irate Gamer, Nostalgia Critic and Frollo.
    • The Nostalgia Critic and Jameson are the most noticeable examples since the former hasn't appeared in many of the creator's videos, lately and the latter is the latest newcomer, at the moment.
  • Game Breaker: Ib's moveset would be such if used in an actual game since it gives the player an absurd amount of field control. Chincherrinas even implemented a nerf in the video description based on one of the comments he received to delay the painting effects.
    • The Nostalgia Critic is a similar case, although Chincherrinas says that we can call him "broken as hell" even after his nerf because he still has the Chuck Norris final smash.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Nicholas protecting Aya from I.M Meen, at the end of Aya's moveset video.
  • Lazy Artist: He cuts out most of the regular level footage, and the parts that are shown are very short. He openly admitted that all he's really interested in showing during the Subspace Emissary videos are the story, so it's somewhat justified. But then in the Classic Mode videos, he cuts out the entirety of every single fight, not even allowing a demonstration of the final boss.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Ib's Final Smash.
    • Possibly Madotsuki's too.
  • The Scrappy: Irate Gamer. Chincherrinas, the maker, purposefully made him a Joke Character, though he actually finds him So Bad, It's Good.
    • Same goes for his Bro, Best Hercules, for similar reasons.
    • In an unintentional example, Carlos Trejo is a character that hasn't been too well received by the fans. In fact, alongside New Hercules, he only has 5 votes in the 1 on 1 voting!
  • So Bad, It's Good: Irate Gamer and Best Hercules, as explained on the Scrappy trope, above.
  • Tear Jerker: Nostalgia Critic, Tommy Wiseau, and Madotsuki mourning the loss of their loved ones from Real City is actually a little sad. The background music helps.
    • If Aya loses a match, she dies from blood loss.
  • That One Boss: This is not a real game, but the way some bosses are presented give the impression of difficult bosses.
    • Game Genie appears to be these. He's only vulnerable without his ghostly tail, which disappears at random, whenever he's not using powerful explosion attacks. Even when he is vulnerable, he's trying to wallop you. And he's one of the first fights of the very second level.
    • Big Red. If he swallows you, it's an instant KO, but his open mouth takes up most of where you can hit him. He also has an attack where he tries to knock you closer to his mouth.
    • The Persian Messenger is always zipping across the screen. It's hard to see him coming, and you take damage for being in the way. He appears to only be vulnerable when he stops so that his horse may neigh, but this is a short window of opportunity that takes an amount of time to happen again.
  • The Woobie: Madotsuki, judging by her back story on her trophy.
