YMMV: The Maze Runner
  • Ho Yay: Between Alby and Newt. Also some between Minho and Thomas.
  • Idiot Plot: WICKED's plan is basically this: instead of studying the Immunes actual immune system (the part of the body responsible for fighting diseases) they instead focus on mapping their neurological system (that is, the part of the body responsible for making decisions, and feeling emotions, and interpreting data, and making you "you") and never once do they realize that not only are these bodily systems completely unrelated, but that even if they could analyze the human brain to the point where they could copy its layout into another human being, it still wouldn't do anything because the body is dying of a disease, which is why the Immune are immune: their immune system is independent of the brain. WICKED should have studied that much more understood part of the body, but if they had, we would have no plot.
  • Thirty Sue Pileup: Although it could be argued that this is justified, since the children were chosen specifically because they were pretty extraordinary.
  • The Woobie: Many characters in the trilogy are woobies, but the biggest woobie of all must be Newt.
