YMMV / Spectrobes

  • Anticlimax Boss: Krux in Beyond the Portals is laughably easy for a final boss, especially considering the bosses that came before him. Although he more than makes up for it in Origins
  • Awesome Music: The series has quite the repertoire of awesome themes but the Final Krux battle stands out.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Firstly, Rallen's initial victory at the end of the first game, secondly Aldous staring down Maja with a defective Geo, and finally at the very end of portals, after taking out Krux's two Dark Spectrobes, Tindera obliterates his Supreme Spectrobe. Then Rallen goes one-on-one against Krux himself.
  • Even Better Sequel: Portals improved upon much of the problems of the original Spectrobes game, the most important change being that you now know how to evolve your Spectrobes and the types are much more obvious. And Origins is better than the previous two.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Maja.
  • Game-Breaker: Samugeki, Spikanor, Zozanero, Naguzoro, Vilanox, Bartolosa, Tindera, Shulla, Artezza, Larrup, Fulvina, Zorna and Voltorn can all end any regular battle in under thirty seconds, and any boss battle in slightly more.
  • So Okay, It's Average: Namely the first one. It's not a bad game, but it isn't fantastic. The game play is extremely unbalanced until Portals, and evolving the spectrobes in the first game save the Evolve Mineral is a nightmare. Portals and Origins more or less fixed this based off the better reception.
  • That One Boss:
    • Maja's final fight in the second game.
    • Round two with Jado in Beyond the Portals. It's a difficult fight, even with fully evolved Spectrobes that are at or near the level cap.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The webisode animation is very well done and quite comparable to some of the better CGI television shows at the time.
