* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Except when it ''was'' made on drugs. ''[[InvertedTrope Ritalin]]'', [[InvertedTrope that is.]]


* HilariousInHindsight:
** ''4'' had a clip where a guy sarcastically says he likes someone else's hat. The other guy steals his face. [[Videogame/{{Miitopia}} Guess what's the main plot in Miitopia]]?

** And then there's Mr. Muffin, a sentient muffin with the voice of a CheerfulChild; awww!!!
** The {{Animesque}} opening to asdfmovie 12 has both Mr. Muffin and "I Like Trains" Kid drawn as cute anime boys, and also the human versions of Beep Beep Sheep and Skateboard Cow.

** This trope ''also'' gets [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] by Tom giving an ApprovalOfGod when he reacted to [[https://youtu.be/vySEy0qabE4 asdfmovie on [=TikTok=]]], finding most of the clips he viewed as incredibly creative with how it reshapes the original sketches. In particular, so long as it doesn't [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny play the song completely straight]] or involve [[PrimalFear puppets]], Tom finds a lot of the [=TikToks=] of The Muffin Song to be really funny.

** The last skit of asdfmovie8 involves a guy [[ColdHam dramatically muttering]] that the orphans are all dead and wondering who could have done this while [[PsychoStrings ominous strings]] are playing in the background. Cut to a shot showing the bodies of the killed orphans all seen laying on the ground, bathing in their blood... [[MoodWhiplash then]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext there's a cow doing skateboard]] just passing by, [[DissonantSerenity perfectly calm]], only whispering "Skateboards !".

Added DiffLines:

** That guy seemed a ''bit'' too happy to admit he parked his car on that other guy's sandwich. Did he do it to be an asshole and was smiling because he wanted to rub it in his face, or did he think parking on the sandwich would be helpful in some way?


* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: The series is popular among older children, thanks to its simple format, SurrealHumor, and unforgettable jokes. However, there are lots of BlackComedy sketches with red animated blood and some SuicideAsComedy. There are also some LGBT jokes, a sexual reference[[note]]In ''asdfmovie12'', an anthropomorphic car punches a guy for "sleeping with his wife"[[/note]], and, in earlier sketches, mild profanity. Even its [[TheBoardGame Board Game]], ''Muffin Time'', is rated 12+!

Added DiffLines:

* SeasonalRot: ''asdfmovie11'' is widely considered to be the least popular episode to date, mainly because of the [[ToiletHumor fart jokes]] (which the series has gone out of its way to avoid up until this point). Even Creator/TomSka himself considers this one an OldShame.


** The girl at the beginning of Movie 11 is pretty [[JustForPun cool]] about [[BlackMagic turning her dad into ice cream and eating him.]]

** The seventh ''asdfmovie'', while still hilarious, has a lot more jokes about death and suicide than previous episodes. A month after it was released, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ds8sSeJtwYs the creator admitted he had been suffering from depression]] and that it may have been subconsciously influencing those jokes, though luckily he emphatically denied wanting to commit suicide.

** The beginning of the tenth asdfmovie is downright ''uncomfortable'' to watch after Creator/LoganPaul came under fire for filming and uploading a video of a man who ended his life in Japan's Suicide Forest on the first day of 2018. For bonus points, LetsPlay/{{Jacksepticeye}} voices the sketch, and would later admit to having suicidal thoughts himself back in 2017.
* FriendlyFandoms
** Not surprisingly, there's a lot of crossover with fans of this series with other beloved web-based animation, like ''WebAnimation/TheLazerCollection'', ''WebAnimation/SuctionCupMan'' and the videos of Creator/FilmCow. Not surprisingly, many of the creators of these animations have also guest starred in ''ASDF'' skits.

* {{Misblamed}}: With asdfmovie 11 being his first as co-writer, some fans blamed Eddie Bowley for the infamous butt joke. Creator/TomSka later admitted the joke was actually his idea, and Eddie fought against its inclusion.

* ReplacementScrappy: While the Waffle in ''asdfmovie12'' isn't necessarily ''hated'', per se, him serving almost the exact same role as one of the series' most popular characters, Mr. Muffin, only replacing suicidal tendencies with brain damage, left many fans disappointed, to say the least.

He was quickly retired after only two scenes... so far.



* ToughActToFollow: ''asdfmovie10'' is considered by many as the best asdfmovie episode to date, but the episodes that followed didn't receive as much praise by some viewers, especially 11 because of the butt jokes. [[{{Irony}} Ironically]], ''asdfmovie10'' is one of Tom's least favorites due to how on-the-nose he found a majority of the jokes to be.

** Strangely enough, this trope gets [[ZigZaggingTrope zigzagged]] by the fact that, as explained by [[https://youtu.be/sFLyzlI5BQ4 this video]], not only did its surge on [=TikTok=] lead to the song going gold, but it also inspired Tom to change the name of ''Random'' into ''TabletopGame/MuffinTime'', both of which helped to further his career he had long since been debating on whether or not to quit.

** There's also fan crossover with, of all things, ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'', thanks to a series of well-made animations by Website/YouTube animator Cmanflip recreating ''ASDF'' skits with ''Veggie Tales'' characters.

* MisaimedFandom: The Muffin Song has become a meme, especially on TikTok. However, many people who sing and dance to it completely missed that it isn't just about a muffin wanting to die. The song is actually about Tom's depression and desire to quit the series, put in song form. The bridge (sung by Music/TheGregoryBrothers) really drives it home, and is mostly cut out in performances for this reason.
