YMMV / Trouble Witches

  • Designated Hero: Yuki Longate. She claims to be a hero, but is a Grade-A spoiled bitch.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Lili and Almagam, Although they didn't intend to be evil in the first place.
  • Game Breaker: Luca, a downloadable character introduced Trouble Witches NEO! has twice as much MP out of the entire cast as well as a significantly higher damage output than any other character in the game.
  • Macekre: The entirety of Trouble Witches NEO's! English localization. Many storylines were heavily abridged, the script can't decide which names to use, and the translation having many instances of Engrish and spotty grammar all suggest that Studio SiestA didn't have the care needed to bring a faithful translation into a danmaku shooter which rarely ever make it outside of Japan. Averted in the sense that you can tell some of the voice cast. are trying, but for the most part, they still sound terrible. Whoever was behind the voice casting has no such excuse as it seems they could not be bothered with finding people who could act or miscast those that tried.
  • Moe: It's a Cute 'em Up after all.
  • Most Annoying Sound: ANY moment in Story Mode where Malcem screams at the top of his whiny lungs as he goes Brainwashed and Crazy before a boss battle in Trouble Witches NEO's! English dub qualifies.
  • Narm Charm: Bad voice acting or not, you can't help but feel at least a little bit sorry for Lyla when she rants about how much she sucks in front of Lilly (until she starts crying, that is). Anything Sakurako says also qualifies as Narm Charm. Her voice actress's accent makes her sound almost adorable.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Some of the Trouble Witches NEO's fanbase consider the "Blind Idiot" Translation and terrible English voice-overs as a good thing. This has led to various videos uploaded to YouTube to feature clips of the game's English dub.
  • Spiritual Licensee: Trouble Witches is probably the closest thing to a Magical Chase sequel.
  • That One Boss: Lili. Unlike the previous bosses, she has a small weak-point that's only vulnerable for less than two seconds then closes her weak-spot off by some trap doors until it opens again. It doesn't help that Lily traps you inside her Eternal Engine form to restrict your mobility and she sends out spiked balls once her turrets and flamethrowers are taken out. Risking to go up close and personal to shoot her core during her first phase will likely get you killed (especially thanks to the standard Xbox 360 controller's cruddy Directional Pad and analog stick) as she moves around the closed off space. And it gets worse when she Turns Red because will fill the screen with bullets with little room to maneuver through them.
  • What an Idiot: Symphony, full-stop. At the beginning of her story, she believed that her crown was stolen by one of Amalgam kids, but then she pulls out the crown from her pocket and places it on her head.
