YMMV / Spelunker

  • Adaptation Displacement: It was originally written for the Atari 8 bit computer and Commodore 64, but everyone remembers the extra unforgiving NES version.
  • Awesome Music: The lyrics of the anime's theme song may make no sense but at least the music, a remix of the video game's main theme and level complete theme, is pretty nice.
  • Demonic Spiders: Everything, really, but especially spiders in Spelunker HD. They're practically invisible against the background and surprisingly hard to jump over. They also travel in packs.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Created in the USA, but popular in Japan.
  • Memetic Loser: Spelunker will forever be remembered as one of the most fragile video game characters of all time for his inability to survive bat guano, pits anyone else could just easily climb out of, or falls greater than a few inches.
  • Memetic Mutation - In Japan, there's many remixes of the NES version's main level music, and the Spelunker himself shows up in many remix videos, such as this one. The fragility of the protagonist is also memetic.
  • Most Annoying Sound: The jingle when you die. You'll be hearing it a lot.
