YMMV / Daisy Brown

Go To

  • Adorkable: Daisy is sheltered, innocent, and absolutely adorable.
  • Catharsis Factor: Alan's death in "Final Video"; not only does he finally pay for all of his mistreatment of Daisy, but when Daisy gains the upper hand, he actually sounds scared for the first time in the entire series.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: As of "the basement", Lithop has already become extremely popular among the fans, most of whom are calling for her to replace Alan.
  • Advertisement:
  • Jerkass Woobie: Possibly Alan—captions imply that his many transitions through growth stages were excruciatingly painful, with one stating that he screamed until he was hoarse and another stating that he felt aches everywhere. Ultimately subverted as his cruelty and hatefulness around the time the series ends makes it hard to feel any sympathy for him.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • As of "Q&A With Alan", people commenting on these videos with "KILL ALAN"or otherwise wishing death on Alan has become increasingly more common. They're not unjustified either.
    • The following comparison between Alan and Lithop, which in itself is based on an actual meme:
  • Moe:
    • Though her face is never shown, Daisy is still adorable due to her innocence and woobieness.
    • Lithop from "the basement", due to her cutesy, childlike voice and friendly demeanor, as well as the cute little homemade mask she uses to hide her terrifying face.

  • Moral Event Horizon: Alan seems to have officially crossed this by killing the cat Daisy found and tried to adopt.
  • Narm: While Alan is creepy looking enough to remain scary even though he's obviously a puppet, his grown-up form is so incredibly goofy looking that he will absolutely stretch the boundaries of your suspension of disbelief if he doesn't destroy it completely.
    • Though, to be fair, his human-like legs may be explained by the fact that he was implied to be made from the legs of someone Daisy's father slaughtered in order to make him.
  • Special Effects Failure: A weird case. Alan is very obviously a puppet. He's a very detailed and well-made puppet that looks extra creepy when he moves, but he's still clearly just a puppet that Daisy (or someone else, when Daisy isn't doing it) is operating. This becomes infinitely more obvious when he grows legs.
  • Squick: Alan is living Squick.
  • Ugly Cute:
    • Alan, at the start of the series. Sure, he's a blind, legless, toothy monster, but he has an almost baby-like charm. He remains ugly as he grows, but he loses the cuteness factor on account of being a Jerkass.

    • Lithop is hiding a fairly disturbing visage under her homemade mask, but she makes up for that in her adorable mannerisms and voice.
  • Uncanny Valley: Alan, Alan, ALAN.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: Alan is obviously a puppet, but he's a very well-made puppet.
  • The Woobie: Daisy herself. She's largely sweet-natured, if sheltered and innocent. There are no parental figures around, and she has to deal with Alan all by herself. Later videos show that dealing with Alan, trying to find her father's notes, and isolation have frayed at her nerves. By “strawberry is gone,” poor Daisy has had to transition from having a father who emotionally and (if the captions are to be believed) physically abused her to a monstrous pet-turned-surrogate-brother who...emotionally and physically abuses her. Curtis might have hit Daisy, but he didn’t kill her cat while forcing her to sleep outside like an animal.

How well does it match the trope?
