YMMV / I Dont Want This Kind Of Hero

Go To

  • Heartwarming Moments:
    • Osu revealing he and his sister view No. 1 and No. 2 like fathers.
      • The silly little scene where the twins' siblings dote on Osu and give him presents.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Baek Morae crossed it in the past when he slaughtered even the innocent test subjects on top of the scientists, with the narrative noting that sympathy for him tends to end at this point, despite his Freudian Excuse. If that doesn't do it, then him holding No. 2 hostage and cheerfully injuring him to make a point, in spite of idolizing No. 2 in the past and knowing how much No. 2 still cares about him, should make it clear that he's not going to be redeemed.

  • One-Scene Wonder: Sekrun, a Victim of the Week, for being an adorable penguin who lays both a physical and verbal beatdown on the culprit.
  • Rooting for the Empire: Due to the quirky nature of Knife, some fans wish Naga would join them just so that they could get more of the spotlight.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: Even after Dana is established to be female, some female fans still admit to finding her attractive.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • Tracey and Venom's deaths.
      • Venom reflects that he doesn't know her, and has never spoken to her, but he loves her and tells her such. She's glad, since she loves him too. They start to cry and embrace. Venom wishes she could get out and be happy, but he can't go. She refuses if they can't go together. They die together, melting into nothing.
    • Dune's breakdown when Baek Morae rubs in his Dark and Troubled Past.

    • No. 2 sheer desperation to save Baek Morae, only to be stabbed and arrested.
      • And then the fallout from his arrest and how it affects his family and friends.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Chief Dana of Spoon, Orca and Song Ha from Knife, Unlucky, and minor characters Dona and Lee are the primary culprits.
  • The Woobie: A number of them, in spite of the series' genre:
    • Dune. His intro lays out his Dark and Troubled Past and has him traumatized again, courtesy of Baek Morae, and even in subsequent appearances, he almost never seems to catch a break. His frequent worn-down appearance just makes you wanna give the guy a hug.
    • Guineung during the 'pet shop' arc. He clearly isn't handling it too well, and once you learn about his past, it's really hard to blame him. Seeing him break down crying before hugging Dana as a child just racks up the Woobie points higher.
    • No. 1 and No. 2. The first, by all means, should've had his faith in humanity broken a long time ago after what he went through and had to witness his brother become traumatized, while the latter, in the present, doesn't take discovering Baek Morae's survival well at all and spends a long portion of the series as an emotional wreck.

    • Sasa, after Song Ha's death. It can be rather painful to see the resident Nice Guy cry for the first time and nearly try to kill himself, with the extent of his issues finally made clear.
    • On the villains' side, Orca. The fact that he was utterly adorable as a child doesn't hurt, and while the scene is hilarious and precious, there's still something sad about seeing a child terrified of getting a present from Santa Claus because he knows that he isn't a good child and that it must be a warning.
    • Unlucky, who is exactly what his name suggests. To make matters worse, the executives purposely ruined his life to further develop his powers, and they secretly now want him dead for being too much of a threat. It's little wonder that he's now a Nervous Wreck.
    • While Raptor comes off as remarkably well-adjusted at times (in part due to being Conditioned to Accept Horror), she has her moments, including the Whole Episode Flashback showcasing her past that acts as a Trauma Conga Line for her.
    • Once Young Jeong showed up, you'll find a number of fans wanting to give Naga a hug.

How well does it match the trope?
