YMMV: The Thundermans
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Max/Phoebe, more commonly known as "Thundercest", is shaping up to be this, judging from the Fan Fiction.
  • Forced Meme: Nick tried to promote the show by making image macros about the show and putting them in their commercials.
  • Love It or Hate It: Even more than The Haunted Hathaways. Though the show has an audience, it's clearly got a very vocal group of people who outright despise it as well as evident by the comments on all The Thundermans videos on YouTube. It doesn't help Nickelodeon disabled all comments on several of it's videos promoting the show to avoid the hate from being apparent.
  • They Copied It, So It Sucks: Many people find the show to be the poor man's Wizards of Waverly Place, with superheroes instead of wizards...and even then is also seen as a copy of Lab Rats. The theme song, "What You See is Not What You Get," is eerily similar to "Everything is Not What it Seems."
    • And the rabbit is a poor man's Salem
    • Many view it as a poor man's Haunted Hathaways which they also view as a poor man's Wizards of Waverly Place, which certainly doesn't help either show.
  • The Unfavorite: Max implies Phoebe has been doted on by the superhero community as the future greatest superhero ever. This seems to be what drove him to villainy.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Mrs. Wong, a (at best) borderline racist caricature who could've been plucked from a sitcom circa 1962.
