YMMV / Strays

The webcomic:

  • Angst? What Angst?: Meela takes seeing Feral kill an old man pretty well, save for the Due to the Dead example below, and still following him wherever he goes.
  • Fridge Horror: Vihki never found out that Yuen was attacked and became Feral, and Feral doesn't even remember her. Somewhere there's a poor lupian girl missing her beloved.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Some of the particular moments of gore were quite disturbing for a comic so comedic. Meela killing Korin as a demonic wolf stands out.
  • Unfortunate Names: Rollin, Meela's father. Several readers quickly began using his name to make references to "rollin' in the deep."
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: In and out of universe. Kosher mistakes Meela for a boy when they first meet, and several readers commented about how they thought she was a boy until that point.
  • The Woobie: Yuen. It's pretty tough to watch this kid have absolutely everything taken away from him, all the way until Mal mauls him and accidentally merges with his soul.

The fanfic:

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The author already planned that Damian would come into the story about five years after the canon formation of the Team, figuring that that would give her a lot of leeway as the show's timeline likely wouldn't get that far anytime soon. As it turns out, the second season started out with a five year Time Skip.
  • The Woobie: Anybody would want to hug Tim as soon as his backstory comes into the light.
    • Jason is one too, declaring himself a "good-for-nothing" who has Tim as the only thing he "has going for him".
