*** ''Big Bruty''. You have to guide yourself through the level while avoiding the eponymous Bruty - who's also invincible - lest you watch Jim getting chewed on big Bruty (which is instant death). The level itself isn't too bad, but some segments will kill a player going through this level for the first time. Thank goodness itís only on the Sega CD version of the game!
*** ''Buttville''. It ''starts'' with you have to helicopter down a branching shaft of [[SpikesOfDoom thorns]].

** A meta example, but when Doug TenNapel attempted to crowdfund a [[https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/earthworm-jim-the-comic-book#/ comic adaptation of the first game, he met production goals in six minutes of the campaign starting]].


* OvershadowedByControversy: In modern times many people have come to associate the series with the controversial anti-LGBT statements of co-creator Doug [=TenNapel=], which has turned them off from playing the games at all.


** Or the [[ThatOneMook giant pincer worms]] from "[[ThatOneLevel Buttville]]". He screams in pain as his body halves fall off the bottom of the screen in both cases.

* WhatAnIdiot: Psycrow quite frequently invokes this in the cartoon, most notably when Jim and Peter [[FantasticVoyagePlot fly into his head through his ear canal]] in the [[TomeOfEldritchLore Book Of Doom]] episode and find out that his brain is every bit as microscopic as they are; the way that he dances around the room after Jim [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext shoves Peter's tape player into said brain]] doesn't help matters either.

** And as for Buttville fan remixes, here's [[https://soundcloud.com/user-625329871-327098627/buttville-1-2-medley-earthworm-jim-v2 this shockingly glorious MIDI medley of both Buttville themes]].


* CrowningMomentOfAwesome / CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Buttville (mentioned above on the Music part), especially the opening segment known as "[[UseYourHead Use Your Head]];" in this opening segment, you [[WorldOfBadass use yourself as a helicopter while skydiving through a gigantic tunnel of enormous thorn spikes]]. The music that plays in this segment is legendary.



* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: For the TV series, the end of "The Egg Beater." After Jim fought them in separate battles throughout the episode, his usual enemies [[VillainTeamUp get together]] to eliminate him. That's seven (eight if you count the monkey) enemies, as well as a stressed-out, transformed Peter Puppy to worry about. In the ensuing battle royale, Jim either outsmarts or outright {{Curb Stomp|Battle}}s them all before a more prolonged battle with the Queen that sees her beaten. And he keeps count of his victories in the process!
