YMMV / The Cartoon Hero

  • Archive Panic: The Cartoon Hero is probably one of the most prolific reviewers outside of Channel Awesome with 287 episodes and counting.
    • To be fair, though, not all of those reviews are videos done as the Hero, which have yet to reach 250.
  • Author's Saving Throw: His Re-Reviews from his older episodes.

  • Crowning Musicof 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
