YMMV / The Cartoon Hero

  • Archive Panic: The Cartoon Hero is probably one of the most prolific reviewers outside of Channel Awesome with 303 episodes and counting.
  • Author's Saving Throw:
    • His Re-Reviews from his older episodes. For example: His Re-Review to Jimmy Neuton Boy Genius was a proper analytical review as opposed to the constant nitpicking in his older review to it.
    • In his "Top 10 Batman: The Brave and the Bold" review, he does mention the DCEU again but unlike with his reviews to Superman vs. the Elite and Justice League: War, he didn't harshly insult any of those movies again and even mentions that he has no problems with anyone being a fan of the DCEU films and in the end he only mentions that he would wish that DC would have more fun with their super heroes.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The Greatest Show Unearthed by Creature Feature. When combined with the nightmare-inducing animations in the intro to So Bad, It's Horrible Halloween, the result is pretty Creepy Awesome.
    • Season 5 had the song It's Not My Time by Three Doors Down and it matched perfectly with the imagery shown during the intro. Just perfect.
  • Broken Base:
  • Critical Research Failure: Much like the Nostalgia Critic, this is bound to happen once in a while—but it's usually addressed in the "Top X Worst Mistakes" list he makes at the end of every season.
    • His videos on Kingdom Hearts bosses are full of these, the most egregious example being him mistaking a case of What Could Have Been as a reverse She's a Man in Japan.
    • In the Jirachi Wish Maker review, he declares Hypnosis doesn't work on Dark Pokemon, which it in fact does.
      • This mistake was so dumb, even he made fun of it later on in the Lucario and the Mystery of Mew review.
      • The thing is he usually would be right because in the Generation 6 games, Absol would likely be a Mega Absol which has Magic Bounce which would reflect the Hypnosis.
    • In his review of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, he states that Battle Tendency(the 2nd part of the anime)takes place in World War 1. Even though the show states that the 2nd part starts off in 1938, a decade after World War 1.
      • He would later correct himself in the comments stating that it takes place between WW1 and WW2, though this would be proven incorrect with a later reply.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • In the beginning, the Hero had a low-quality camera, clearly read from a script, and at first didn't even have a real personality — yet somehow, on the TGWTG forums and in his later videos, his views are almost even with Diamanda Hagan. To be fair, though, he did fix those problems later.
    • Number 6 is very popular amongst the fans because of his married couple like interactions with the Hero which are amongst the funniest moments of the series.
  • Friendly Fandoms: With Anime Abomination, Tv Trash, and The Hardcore Kid, due to their occasional crossovers.
  • Heartwarming in Hindsight:
    • In his Hey Arnold! The Movie review, he said that the Hey Arnold Jungle Movie would probably never be made due to being stuck in development hell for over 10 years. Several months later...
    • At the end of his Samurai Jack review, he helds a speech about never giving up your dreams and he also tells his audience that just because someone says your work is terrible and you don't deserve another chance, that you should never stop doing what you love to do. About two years later Samurai Jack finally got its chance to continue.
  • He Panned It, Now He Sucks:
  • He Really Can Act: In the Tales of Symphonia review, he starts off on the verge of tears due to Six's death in the previous episode. And for some audience members, his delivery got them choked up as well.
  • Hype Backlash: The Hero made a video about the Top 10 Cartoons He Hates That Everyone Else Loves, with Elfen Lied making the #1 spot.
  • Inferred Holocaust: One apparently happened in the future Number Six came from. We even hear the last few moments of numbers 7-9...
  • Internet Backdraft: A small contingency of people hate his "Top 10 Cartoons I Hate That Everyone Else Loves" list.
  • Special Effects Failure: During the In Search of the Titanic (a.k.a. Tentacolino) review, there's a flash when the Cartoon Villain kills Nina Galas/alternate good Diamanda Hagan but it's not until a second later that you hear the explosion.
  • Tear Jerker: The beginning of his Tales of Symphonia review.
    • In his Avatar: The Last Airbender review: The "In Honor of Mako" was already quite touching in the series, but what is just as emotional is that immediately after this scene we get to see the Hero doing a Military Salute towards Mako.
    • Meta: Eli Stone had announced to retire the Cartoon Hero in 2018 which still hits hard with about of fans.
