YMMV / Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom

Go To

  • Crack Pairing:
    • Some people seem to ship Nanny Plum and Wise Old Elf for no reason other than that they fight a lot in the show.

  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Nanny Plum.
    • Strawberry.
    • Redbeard.

  • The Scrappy:
    • The Wise Old Elf is widely hated by fans, mainly for bullying the fairies for their lack of common sense, especially since some of the fairies do have common sense (like Holly or Queen Thistle). He is also hated for being called wise when he is really The Ditz.

    • Despite being an Ensemble Darkhorse Nanny Plum has had her fair share of hate for being lazy and seems to always have a bad attitude.
    • King Thistle Definitely gets the most hate, Like The Wise Old Elf he often gets called wise when he is really The Ditz , and is shown to be very rude, lazy and spoiled. He never seems to care about anyone else but himself.
    • Strawberry particularly in ‘’The Wand Factory’’.
  • The Woobie:
    • Queen Thistle Definitely, she has a husband that is very lazy, whom she really is clearly smarty than, plus her sister Queen Marigold is shown to bully her.
    • Holly is also shown to get this trope a lot. Specifically, in the episodes ‘’Elf School” , ‘’Visiting the Marigolds’’ and ‘’The Wand Factory’’ it is clearly shown that Holly wants to live a normal life (even implying that she wants to be an elf or even a big person) instead of living the annoying fairy life.

    • Mr. Elf (a Jerk with a Heart of Gold) has this moments in “Bunty II” and “Mrs. Jolly’s Riding Club”.

  • They Copied It, So It Sucks!:
