YMMV / I Hate Everything

Go To

  • Bizarro Episode: Whatever made Alex create this video, we may be better off not knowing.
  • Critical Research Failure:
    • In the Comment Comeback for the Frozen video, he says that the avatar of one of the people whose comment was featured in the video is from Bratz, although the avatar in question is actually from Monster High. Though, he does state in the same video that does have no knowledge of Bratz, so the confusion is justified.

    • Also, in the Comment Comback for the Sonic video, he believes a comment is talking about the "Chaos Garden" when he said "Chao Garden." Again, justified since he's hardly played any Sonic games.
    • In his Funko Pop video, he repeatedly shows a Funko Pop of Gene, as if it was official. It was designed as a deliberate hoax on Reddit just for the sake of annoying people.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The "I HATE FUNKO POP VINYLS" video has Ihe talking about a figure of Princess Diana. He then shows the unboxed figure, when complaining about the Funko Pop's lack of a mouth. So he (crudely) draws a smile on her with a marker and says "Don't worry Princess, you can smile now! You're in heaven!".
  • Fridge Horror: The "I HATE FUNKO POP VINYLS" video has Ihe showing the figures for Princess Diana, Brian Griffin and Ramona. He claims that they're connected, which sounds like Blatant Lies on first watch, until one realizes that all three had a car-related death. Jesus Christ...

  • Friendly Fandoms: With YMS. See YMS's YMMV page for further information.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • In his I HATE E3 video, he says that Satoru Iwata has the charisma of a plank of wood, and he looks stiff and lifeless. A few weeks later, Satoru Iwata passed away to a bile duct tumor. Granted, he did leave an annotation later saying he does appreciate Mr. Iwata's work, and that he sends his respect out to him.
    • In his review of Cool Cat Saves the Kids, IHE concludes saying he wishes he could hate the movie more than just seeing it as So Bad, It's Good. With that video leading to an infamous controversy with Derek Savage and a hiatus for the "Search for the Worst" series, his wish may have been granted.
    • In his review for Smosh: The Movie, he says that, of the Smosh duo, Anthony is the weak link in terms of comedy, talent, and so on. A couple years later, Anthony left Smosh.
  • Heartwarming Moments:
    • The dead celebrity segment of his "I Hated 2016" video, where he gives his sincere, genuine respect to David Bowie, Carrie Fisher, all the celebrities who died, and last of all, his childhood dog Flossy. Also counts as a Tear Jerker.
    • His look at Who Killed Captain Alex?, an independent, low budget Ugandan action movie, where he shows almost no anger or mocking towards it, but genuine respect for the cast and crew for making a film just to entertain others, even with the odds heavily against them due to living in the slums of a third-world country. He considers it the best film in The Search For The Worst, and even recommends supporting them by purchasing a DVD. His final comment regarding how the film was made despite all odds is rather inspiring, especially for would-be filmmakers:
      IHE: If you're someone who's been saying all their life, "Wow, I'd really love to make a movie," I mean, Who Killed Captain Alex really does highlight why you have absolutely no excuse not to just do it. If these people with no money, infrequent electricity, and barely any clean water can get a film made, then why can't... you?
    • Alex receiving a message from the director of The Amazing Bulk, a movie that Alex ripped to shreds in his review.
    • * In "The Most HATED YouTube Videos, he ends up giving likes to a few videos simply because he finds them harmless, including "Baby Shark".
  • He Panned It, Now He Sucks!:
    • When you make a lot of videos titled "I HATE (insert topic)", there's bound to be a lot of backlash. Most noticeable when he talked about Sonic the Hedgehog, bronies, and Five Nights at Freddy's.
    • A weird example happened with the I HATE MINECRAFT video, in which he got backlash for hating Minecraft... even though he said outright in the video that he likes Minecraft, but didn't like the overexposure of Minecraft on the internet. Lampshaded in the Comment Comeback for the video.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • In his "I HATE DAMN DANIEL" video, he ends with saying, "I'll see you fuckers next week when DURR PLANT is a fucking meme." About a week later, it did become a meme. So much so that he made an "I HATE DURR PLANT" video.
    • This video was made almost a year before IHE said it in one of his videos.
    • Zig-zagged with his Suicide Squad video, where he sarcastically says that DC is really off to the races with their "amazing" cinematic universe. Then came Wonder Woman, a movie that was universally acclaimed and got the DCEU back on track (though Alex himself thought it was the definition of So Okay, It's Average). Then after Wonder Woman, Justice League came along, which judging by its polarizing reception, fulfilled his quip. Then a year later, Alex saw Aquaman and, despite his general disain for the character, he enjoyed the movie and found it to be his favorite DCEU entry just because how it was dumb yet over-the-top entertaining.
  • Hypocritical Fandom: Many comments in "I HATE ANXIETY (AND STALKERS)" were very supportive of IHE's decision to take a break from YouTube, due to emotional stress inflicted on him by a stalker. Fans were sure to tell Alex to take a long break, and come back to YouTube only when he felt ready to do so. However, many of these same fans can be found complaining on IHE's livestream promotion videos (which he deletes when the stream is over), claiming that he's become a sellout, and never makes "real" videos anymore.
  • Memetic Mutation:
  • Misaimed Fandom: As discussed in his video about fan suggestions, there's a small amount of people who don't realize the whole "Hate" part of his channel is meant to be an exaggeration, and want him to do videos on things they actually hate. While Alex usually just ignores these people, he is somewhat disturbed by comments that ask him to do videos about actual groups of people.
  • Nightmare Fuel: In Alex's review for Shark Exorcist he absolutely loses his shit over the sight of a woman running down a playground slide. He's so pissed that his voice actually changes from his usual Deadpan Snarker tone to something reminiscent of a volcano erupting.
  • Opinion Myopia: Not Alex himself, but his "Comment Comeback" videos are littered to the brim with this.
  • Seasonal Rot: Some think his more recent content has started to lose the unique style Alex had, becoming more of a typical movie reviewer and straying away from his comedic rants about trends and less orthodox topics from the typical Youtuber. Similar viewers feel the same about his Search For the Worst series being more of a typical review channel a straying from its IMDB search and ranking premise.
  • Squick: When reviewing Sky Force in the "(NOT DISNEY) Collection", he frequently flashes (often badly drawn) pictures of anthro planes, usually in fetish-related situations, in order to squick out the audience.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • The ending of his "With Apologies To Derek Savage" video, which ends in a quiet and solemn "I never wanted this".
    • His attitude regarding YouTube shutting down his channel for a small while. He just sounds like he's given up on YT being a workable system.
    • Once again, IHE got another copyright claim, this time on his "I HATE DAMN DANIEL" video, not even a week after he posted it. Only this time, a company called [Merlin] CDLTD falsely put in the claim for no reason other than to get revenue from said video. And due to YouTube's abysmal system when it comes to handling claims, there's nothing IHE can do but wait, while the company steals his money. There's a reason why the video he posts about the situation is called "THIS ISN'T FUNNY ANYMORE." And then that video has since been taken down, as IHE is apparently not legally allowed to directly talk about this company. No reason has been given why.
    • His video regarding his experience with stalking and the resulting anxiety problems that have come with said stalking. Doubles as a Heartwarming Moment as IHE goes on to explain to anyone else suffering from anxiety that they they are not alone and there are ways to manage.


How well does it match the trope?
