History YMMV / WanderOverYonder

Go To



** Lord Hater's change in personality between Seasons 1 and 2 is also subject to debate. To elaborate, in season 1, while still a PsychopathicManchild whose tyranny is being diminished by his obsession with Wander, he is still a badass force to be reckoned with. In season 2, he has been reduced to a BigBadWannabe, his PsychopathicManchild traits have been turned UpToEleven, and he is incapable of performing the simplest of tasks without Peepers' assistance. (Who himself went through a similar ''reversed'' change between seasons, but has been very well-received.)[[spoiler:Fans rejoiced at the sudden return of his utter badassery in the season finale.]]

** Lord Dominator. For half the fanbase [[spoiler:she's a breath of fresh air, a GenkiGirl OmnicidalManiac and a competent villain who poses a legitimate threat and remains immune to Wander's attempts at friendship and shipping with Hater.]] For the other half, [[spoiler:she is considered a flat character who has little to no development. Though this changes slightly towards the end of Season 2, where she received a bit more character development.]]

* EarWorm: The theme song:

** COMMANDER PEEP-ERS!
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcQ00IYsCJo "Take a Step Inside Your Mind"]].
** ''Box box box box, what's in the box?''
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPUFh1-E9K0 "OH it's your happy birthday..."]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWjDzpVy-N0 "Shake your deadly venom sac"]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkwvSDwFt0E "Let The Pun Fit The Crime"]]
** Pretty much everything of "My Fair Hatey" but most noticeably [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdEo_t-iVbM "I'm The Bad Guy"]]
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJcm32Z6KqM Who is the Universe's awesomest evildoer? HAAATEEER!]]"


** [[spoiler:More significantly, Wander is confirmed to be thousands of years old and he has likely outlived most of his past friends and companions. He certainly doesn't show it.]]

That is, of course, unless ''[[WhoWantsToLiveForever this]]'' is what he was referring to when he said he knows what it's like to be helpless...]]

* InternetBackdraft: The show being canned after ''two seasons'' enraged both fans of the show and fans of Creator/CraigMcCracken, especially considering the ''reason'' for the cancellation: The executives felt 80 episodes was ''enough'' for the show. The fact that this was the first of Craig's cartoons to be cancelled rather than willingly ended and that the same executives were willing to wait for a third season of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' AND give ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' '''four''' seasons didn't help matters.


* BizarroEpisode: "The Void", in which Wander and Sylvia visit a white space (think Michael Crichton's [[https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Literature/Sphere Sphere]]) where anything either of them dream up comes immediately true, and the rules of logic and common sense do not apply. It's pretty much non-stop insanity from start to finish.

Added DiffLines:

* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: Tony Luke believes Lord Dominator to be plagiarised off his ''[[https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominator_(comics) Dominator]]'' character.


* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Is Wander really a huge [[TheDitz ditz]], or is he [[ObfuscatingInsanity acting ditzy]] [[ObfuscatingStupidity on purpose]] to stop Lord Hater's evil plans? [[GeniusDitz Or both?]] [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers OR]] is Wander simply on drugs? [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs Given the overtones of the show]], this is something to seriously consider.

* FireflyEffect: It's rather telling that the show's popularity skyrocketed ''only'' when it was announced that it was going to be canceled.

* InternetBackdraft: The show being canned after ''two seasons'' have enraged people and are going out of their way to convince Disney to resurrect it back, especially considering the ''reason'' for the cancellation: The executives felt 80 episodes were ''enough'' for the show. This ''has not'' gone well for fans.

* CounterpartComparison: Wander pretty much IS [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]]. Both are [[TechnicalPacifist paci]][[ActualPacifist fistic]], [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} goofy]], [[Really700YearsOld ageless]] intergalactic travelers who help those in need, both have a DarkAndTroubledPast, both are OnlyKnownByTheirNickname, both [[GuileHero tend to use their wits and cunning to defeat their enemies]], and both are [[LivingLegend living legends]]. Oh yeah, and both of them have a faithful companion who also happens to be their mode of transportation and who also happens to be blue in colour.
** [[spoiler:A powerful and cunning villainess is defeated by someone she had vastly underestimated, and is stripped of her army and resources. She is then offered friendship and a chance at forgiveness by the hero, only to [[RedemptionRejection turn it down]] and storm off, swearing revenge.]] Lord Dominator, or [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Queen Chrysalis]]? (It certainly helps that the season finales of both shows aired within 3 months of each other.)
** Speaking of Lord Dominator, she can also be compared to a [[Characters/DragonBallFrieza very specific Dragon Ball character]]. To list, they both destroy planets to benefit themselves (monetary gain for Frieza, fueling her ship for Dominator), both have a [[{{Sadist}} sadistic streak]], both are [[PsychopathicManChild lethally childish]], both have [[RedemptionRejection denied the main heroes chance at forgiveness]] and both [[KnightOfCerebus change the tone of the show drastically]].
