YMMV: Trouble In Terrorist Town
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Since everyone in Terrorist Town is, well, a terrorist, wouldn't that make the traitor of the group a good guy? Their main objective is to kill off the other terrorists after all, even if it results in their death. So would that mean that the "innocent" are actually the bad guys?
  • Broken Base:
    • In general, there is a split in the fandom regarding Let's Play videos. See "Stop Having Fun" Guys.
    • The fandom gets contentious over "point shops", since some of their additions are seen as stupid or impractical. Others, however, do not mind so much.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: There's a certain humor to be found in reading the phrase "Lovable, innocent terrorist."
  • Paranoia Fuel:
    • The entire game if you're an innocent. More than a few accidental teamkills will result from this.
    • The other "classes" have this same issue. If you are a Traitor, most of your time will be spent trying to commit your crimes wondering "are they going to figure it out?" and looking over your shoulder for witnesses. The Detective meanwhile has to find the Traitors as fast as they can, all the while having a massive target on their back since the Innocents will be crippled without them.
    • Jihad bombs, if your server has them installed and many people run close together.
  • "Stop Having Fun" Guys: Some parts of the fandom are very vocal about certain Let's Play videos, in part because of RDM note , ghosting and the use of communication programmes other than in-game voice chat or typing.See below:
    • SeaNanners is probably one of the more notable examples, since he caused the game to rise in popularity, causing his impressionable fanbase to copy him. For further context, Nanners plays on a private server with close friends, whereas his more irrational fans join random games with strangers and are seen to unbalance the game with behaviour that will result in a pretty instant ban.
    • The irritation about bad behaviour doesn't just extend to fandom reaction. Some more extreme fans want the gamers in question to stop doing it on their own, private servers, when everyone is okay with it.
