YMMV: The Almighty Johnsons
  • Blessed with Suck: How Ty views his powers. To be fair, his powers do kind of suck: he's mostly numb to sensation and accidentally froze Dawn while they were in bed.
  • Ear Worm: Gin Wigmore's "Oh My", the song used in the opening credits.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Michele/Sj÷fn embodies this trope, given that she's the human incarnation of a goddess of love.
  • Fridge Brilliance: in mythology, Hel is depicted as half her body being alive and the other half skeletal or decaying. In season 2, Eva as Hel is depicted as almost having two different personalities at times.
  • Hollywood Homely: Played straight and somewhat exaggerated with Delphine, who has moles and a small boil on her face and wears frumpy clothes (which may well hide the fact that she's pregnant). Olivia Tennet, the actress who plays Delphine, is much more attractive in real life.
  • Ho Yay: Zeb's admiration of Axl and addressing him constantly as "My Lord Odin" does make it seem like he's more than a little bit in love with him.
  • I Knew It: Gaia going to be Frigg, before fate intervened.
  • Memetic Mutation: "It's not a coma!" (Referring to "Coma Rob".)
  • Tear Jerker: Eva expressing sorrow over her inability to control herself, which occurs shortly before her death. She used to be a regular girl who wrote sad songs before she found out she was a goddess.
    • Dawn post-Agar. There aren't any words said, but you can just tell how depressed she is over losing someone she doesn't even remember.
  • The Woobie: Several.
    • The montage near the end of the final episode of season 3.
    • Amongst the Johnson brothers, Ty, mainly because he always ends up being the "best friend a girl could ever have" (though he gets better for a while with Dawn).
    • Amongst the secondary characters, Dawn, Anders's assistant, who always ends up cleaning up after his literal and figurative messes. Delphine could also be considered one for being the daughter of Derrick/Thor and for breaking down into tears when Axl gets annoyed with her.
    • Jerkass Woobie: Anders and Mike to an extent.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Season three seems to be hit-or-miss with a lot of the show's fans, mainly due to the fact that some major plot elements - the Godhunters, Gaia becoming Idunn and subsequent strain in Axl and Anders' relationship - are introduced and dropped fairly quickly with little or no fanfare.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Anders's powers of persuasion bear a remarkable resemblance to date rape, especially when some of his "conquests" talk about not even knowing why they agreed to sleep with him. It's hard to tell how much of this subtext is intentional—Anders is portrayed as a dick for using his powers the way he does, but it's never really taken to the logical conclusion.
