YMMV / Negas

Go To

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Negas the Only Sane Man in a world where there is very little common sense. or he's just a Jerkass who sees himself superior to everyone?
    • Some episodes focused on Checker imply that he is more mature than the Negas-episodes usually gives him credit for; it's just that we normally see him through Negas's perspective, as the ditzy homosexual coworker.
  • Base-Breaking Character:
    • Negas himself. Some admire him as the ideal role model due to his Deadpan Snarker attitude, while others see him as a clearly flawed but still well rounded character. Then there are those who find him an all around self-righteous hypocrite (like making fun of Ñoñostacio for being an otaku, when he is a Loony Fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles himself).
    • Advertisement:
    • Checker is either a hilarious Lovable Sex Maniac or an Overused Running Gag with an annoying voice.
    • Ñoñostacio is either a cool Otaku Surrogate with a naive personality or annoying for the same reason (and his obesssion with Monchiro).
  • Bizarro Episode: Much of the 2015-ongoing episodes, leading to the Seasonal Rot.
  • Broken Base:
    • The new seasons, which have become more nonsensical. To some, it's an improvement, while the rest see it as a Seasonal Rot.
    • RAL announcing that he will stop making Negas's episodes in favor of Niño Ratta and Poppa, as they are very popular with the younger (and more numerous) audience. Many fans were not amused. He eventually stopped making Poppa episodes.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Averted. Weird stuff does go down on the show, but, unlike most Big Lipped Alligator Moments, the weirdness is part of the plot and gets referred to in later episodes.
    • However, later season became too bizarre and nonsensical, leading to Seasonal Rot.
  • Bile Fascination: Especially the Niño Ratta segments.
  • Crazy Awesome: Pinchimono, full stop.
    • Niño Ratta's stepfather.
    • Moni's homosexual hair.
  • Creator's Pet: Some fans think Poppa Peg and the Niño Ratta are becoming this. To the point RAL is making less Negas-focused episodes in favor of them. It's confirmed in this video that RAL will stop making Negas episodes to focus on Niño Ratta and Poppa.
    • Niño Ratta ended up being the most profiteable of the two and he eventually stopped making Poppa episodes.
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: The sadistic nature of the "Don Makila" segments and the truly unfair Butt-Monkey approach to Negas makes the show very painful to sit through, especially considering Negas pretty much never wins anything at the end of each episode.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple:
    • After the absolutely heartwarming "Reanima tu Cuerpo", many fans wanted Negas and the party girl to end up together.
    • Some fans ship Negas and Moni together, despite the fact they never interacted at all. Half of these fans ship them because they think Moni could be a good Manic Pixie Dream Girl for him, while the other half ships them because of Moni's resemblance to the party girl.

    • On the slash side of things, the most popular ship is Negas/Checker, thanks to Checker's rampant lust towards him.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: Some fans believe Ral to be Negas's son or younger self. Word of God has established that they're brothers. However, it was only mentioned during a Ral-centered episode. It's safe to say that Ral's centered episodes are mostly ignored or forgotten.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The Yankee Boss, who keeps berating Negas and the rest of coworkers of the maquila, simply becayse they're "freakin' beaners". He always makes fun of them because he sees Mexicans as uncultured, vulgar delinquents. One year later, Donald Trump reveals his consistently inflammatory rhetoric against Mexicans for the same reasons.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
    • Negas, to the point he surpassed Ral (the original protagonist) and got a show of his own.
    • Also Checker, for being quirky and funny.
    • Moni and her homosexual hair. It's ironic that RAL thought the character's debut would fail.
    • Don Cuco comes by a very distant second, or at least to barely make it out of The Scrappy label, mainly due to him always beating the shit of Niño Ratta constantly.
  • Memetic Molester: Checker himself.
  • Memetic Mutation: Especially in its own country.
    • Negas's Catchphrase Mamadas, mamadas pendejas! (Bullshit, freaking bullshit!)
    • Ay, que rico!
    • Aurururururu!
    • Niño Ratta's Papu is this in spades, with kids all over the country saying it.
  • Periphery Demographic: This cartoon has been watched by children, even though it wasn't really for kids....
  • Take That, Scrappy!:
    • In the end of "Los Productos PRO" ("The PRO-est Products"), Niño Ratta's mother is Driven to Suicide, unable to stand her life any longer. In the episode, he wants to buy some books of famous Spanish bloggers and annoys her until she acquiesces. Back home, he loses interest in the books and throws them away, causing his mother to kill herself. Fans ROOTED when his stepfather realizes what happened and beats the shit out of the Niño Ratta. Well, he was angrier that the woman wasted all the money in the books; which he planned to use for beer; but fans cheered nonetheless.
  • The Unfavorite: Ral is perpetually mocked up for being "the unpopular sibling", compared to his Ensemble Dark Horse of a brother.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: More sex jokes, molestation, frequent lethal use of weapons and profanities than you can shake a yardstick at.
    • This series was made in Mexico, so is a little lighter on the censorship.
