YMMV / The Online Warrior

  • Crosses the Line Twice: Some of Simmons' jokes can be absolutely disgusting and gross, but you will still find yourself laughing at them.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Several. But his Motivational Gameplay is filled with awesome and funny.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Week Of! Harley Quinn Part Six. The very last match involves Max going up against a child playing Bane with his father coaching him. Max lets him win.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Max's dog Benny, who plays Amaterasu in the show, has segments and entire videos focusing on him thanks to his fanbase. Being the resident Ridiculously Cute Critter definitely helps.
  • Friendly Fandoms: With the Two Best Friends Play crew. Max even invoked a Counterpart Comparison between his team and the Best Friends (Max = Matt, Simmons = Pat, Kenny = Woolie, Steve = Liam, Benny = Zach).
    • Woolie and Matt revealed in a Reddit AMA that Max is one of their favorite Youtubers, and the others often mention Max in the videos.
      • Max finally appeared on the Super Best Friendcast in Episode 63, and Woolie and Matt appeared on Max's livestream on December 2, 2015.
  • Genius Bonus: In Assist Me featuring Jill, Wesker says over the phone that he has the launch codes and they are 11 15 20 11. As a date, November 15th 2011, this was the launch date for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
  • Growing the Beard: Max's videos have noticeably become more lively following his switch to livestreaming on Twitch.
  • Ho Yay: There is some serious amounts of this going on between Doom and Strider, though mostly on Doom's part, which could raise a few eyebrows for a Yaoi Fangirl.
    • The EVO special suggested some stuff between Doom and Wesker going on, at least according to the comments.
    • The crew managed to find a Rule 34 picture of Max and Simmons on DeviantArt.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Doom rapping the line that he has diplomatic immunity when going up against Wesker is later used to bail him out of being convicted of crimes against humanity in court in Ultimate Assist Me.
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Wesker hasn't seen his family in years, he never had any birthday parties, his father never taught him to play baseball and he hates Christmas cause he never got anything he asked for.
  • Mary Sue: Phoenix. Let's see, did a lot of damage and being given a second chance? Check. Super-Powered Evil Side, though it collides with canon, Check. Better than the reoccuring character? Check. Won EVO? Check. It's shaky, but it's there. As of Part 2 It's All About Me can be thrown onto the pile.
  • Memetic Badass: Hugo, because of this clip from the Oni Boss Rage. It's to the point where he was treated as The Dreaded in the Boss Rage proper, and Max offhandedly mentions having developed a fear of Hugo because of it.
  • Memetic Mutation: Say it with me now: THE FINGER LASEEEEEERS!
    • Max seems to be a fountain of these, and often says things during his lets plays of other games, such as "Take to the skies!" (used for jumping attacks), "I play fighting games!" (used when he plays non-fighting games and does some cool melee combos), and of course "Yo video games!"
    • R-R-R-R-R-RAGEQUITTER! Taken from the very first episode of The Online Warrior for Injustice: Gods Among Us when he plays Batman (in his Batman Beyond costume) and an Ares player, well, ragequits on himójust as the match is about to end in Max's favor! The fact that a bug in the netcode resulted in Max getting the loss and the Ares player getting the win instead of the other way around didn't help matters either.
    • Max's Catch Phrase
    • Bananas and Sex!
    • BURD!
    • Glorious 60 FPS.
    • 21! SUCK MAH DICK!
  • Nightmare Fuel: Max finds Double and Ms. Fortune to be absolutely horrifying
  • Signature Scene:
    • This clip has become quite the Running Gag.
    • As far as Boss Rage videos go, Max's Asura's Wrath Boss Rage is considered by many to be his masterpiece. There's also the Bio Freaks Boss Rage, which brought us the Memetic Badass that is Lord Ssapo.
