YMMV: The Superhero Squad Show
  • Ass Pull: The final episode can come off as this. After building up to a dramatic showdown with Dark Surfer, he's defeated and then shown to be Disc One Final Boss. The heroes find Dr. Doom, having claimed the Infinity Sword/Stones, and the Squad fight him...only for the stoned to shatter and conveniently restore everything to normal.
  • Awesome Music: The show itself is a definate Base Breaker with fans, but most can agree that the theme song is excellent.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Pretty regularly. For instance, when Dr Strange was reading everyone's minds, Thor is wondering if his tights make his thighs look big.
  • Broad Strokes: The Days of Future Past episode. Really the only similarity was that both involved a Bad Future ruled by Sentinels.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: To an extent, Doom being portrayed as a fan of Red Skull. Take in account that Red Skull is a Nazi in the comic, while Doom is a half-Roma.
  • Ear Worm: Who'll save the day....Super Hero Squad! Even if naysayers hate the show, they can't deny that the opening theme is catchy. It helps that the composer of the song is Perry Gripp, of Nerf Herder fame.
    • Plus it sounds a bit like an Offspring song, complete with the singer sounding like Dexter Holland in the verses.
  • Foe Yay: Enchantress and Thor, though completely one-sided.
  • Fridge Brilliance: At one point, most of the squad has to either serve jail time or pay an enormous fine. Everyone is shown in jail, except for Iron Man who, as one of the richest men in the Marvel universe, could pay his fine with ease.
  • Fridge Logic: Iron Man sleeps in his suit under his PJs?
  • Ham and Cheese: Some of the really overdone lines from Doom and Thanos become Crazy Awesome due to delivery of their voice actors.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Wolverine's list of people he's teamed up with includes the Easter Bunny. In the fall of 2012, a movie was released where Hugh Jackman voiced the Easter Bunny.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Reptil is Pit. And speaking of Kid Icarus, in one episode S. Scott Bullock provides the voice of the Red King, using the exact voice he'd later use for Hades.
  • Squick : Whilst having his suit melted, the heroes jokingly ponder what's underneath:
    Doctor Doom:I'm wearing a METAL THONG!
    • Of course, all his metal was melting... You probably don't want to think too hard about that.
    • Too late. Ow. Ow!
  • They Just Didn't Care: The animation for the show was pretty lacking. Often times just lingering on a shot with awkward pauses as the characters talked. Reusing footage and using speeded up editing which really didn't help it.
