YMMV / The Last Guardian

  • Ambiguous Gender: Trico's gender hasn't been clarified, so fans are stuck on whether to refer to the character as him/her/another gender completely.
  • Fridge Brilliance: The griffin is named Trico because it's in the third game of the ICO series, completing the trio of ICO games.
  • Hell Is That Noise: While Trico's grunts can be cute, his other noises are hellish sometimes. Prime example: His screams of terror when confronted with the satellite dish-like device in the E3 2015 trailer.
  • Tough Act to Follow: It is a successor to the much beloved Shadow of the Colossus which still has a massive fanbase to this day, and a series of dedicated hackers trying to find "the last big thing" hidden in the game's code. It's safe to say that expectations for The Last Guardian are stupendously high.
  • Ugly Cute: Trico is one freakish-lookin' beast. But damn if listening to those puppy-like grunts don't make him adorable.
  • Uncanny Valley: Trico is rendered much more realistically than the other characters seen in the game. As a result, a few people have mentioned it makes him look rather off next to the main protagonist, who's rendered in a semi-cell shaded style.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The E3 Trailer shows exactly why the game has been in development so long. It looks gorgeous.
