YMMV / Tak and the Power of Juju

Go To

Works in this franchise with their own YMMV pages:

The franchise as a whole

  • Awesome Music: Every console title in the series has its fair share of completely awesome tunes.
  • Broken Base: The show. Was it a good adaption of the games, or did they ruin the series by making it? Many are on the side of the latter given the show seems to have been the Franchise Killer.

  • Funny Moments: In the 3rd game, Tak and Lok apparently have new Juju powers wich include respawning, the result? Tak getting increasingly annoyed at Lok continually jumping off a cliff so he can respawn. Just about any moment with Party Juju in the second and third games.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The games managing to outlast the TV series when it was suppose to be a TV series in the first place.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Each game has one: in the first game it's Flora and Dinky Juju, in the second it's the Giant Misunderstanding, Fauna (Flora's twin sister), and JB (Being voiced by Jeff Bennett most certainly helps), and in the third it's the Black Mist Tribe. The Show even has a few popular characters such as Jeera and Log Hermit.
  • No Problem with Licensed Games: Granted, the game came well before the show, but being made from Nicktoon's staff who normally handles the video game adaptions of Nicktoons which usually end up being all over the place in terms of quality, the original game was a surprisingly fun and solid platformer.

  • Only the Creator Does It Right: Any game in the series not made by Avalanche Software is accused of this.
  • So Okay, It's Average: The various handheld games and The Guardians of Gross are seen as this.
  • The Scrappy: The Yorbels of the first Game and the Woody Shamans in the second game.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Near the end of the second game, Jibolba mentions the Black Mist Tribe and how the Pupanunus went to war with them and if the third game is any indication the feud between the two is still going on. However, the plot of The Great Juju Challenge focuses on the titular challenge and the Black Mist wind up overshadowed entirely by The Dark Juju. The Pupanunu/Black Mist rivalry isn't focused on much beyond that and the series was supplanted by the Cartoon Adaptation and its games soon after, meaning the Black Mist's territory and potential as villains for the series was abandoned.

The first game

  • Awesome Music: Wild Child.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The Tak version of the song "Wild Child" and a green fairy also appear in Euro Trip, released in February 2004.
  • Signature Song: Wild Child, which has been used throughout all of the commercials.
  • That One Level:
    • Chicken Temple. Without staying at max health for the amulet speed boost, outrunning the chickens is almost impossible. You don't respawn at full health.
    • DryRock Canyon is this in the first game due to everything in the area out to kill you. Doesn't help that the whole place is infested with nerbils.


How well does it match the trope?
