YMMV / The Adventures of Kid Danger

Go To

  • Continuity Lock-Out: The show expects you to know quite a bit about its parent series since it doesn't do anything to introduce new viewers.
  • Designated Hero: Captain Man and Kid Danger, our so called "heroes", often act incredibly immature and dangerous, with very little provocation.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Charlotte being the Butt-Monkey (and having been the Black Best Friend in Henry Danger) really brings up some questions.

  • Eight Deadly Words: With how flat, annoying, and/or unlikable everyone is, you end up rooting for no one.
  • Rooting for the Empire: With how dull and/or unlikable most of the Henry Danger cast is, you'll often end up feeling more sympathy for the various antagonists that show up. They at least have personality.
    • One good example is in the pilot episode "Popcorn Monster". One scene involves a truck driver hijacking a school bus full of children. While definitely bad, he's actually a decent guy considering he was willing to buy the kids snacks, without expecting them to pay. Plus, they don't look that concerned about their current situation considering that they don't have to go to school. The fact it comes after a scene where our "heroes" go undercover in a movie theater and make a mess just to prove that there are identical pieces of popcorn, doesn't exactly make our "heroes" look like the good guys. The fact that the aforementioned hijacking is followed by Charlotte hijacking that same bus when he's away only to accidentally destroy a gas station doesn't help.
  • The Scrappy:
    • Jasper, full stop! He only exists just to get tortured, and make things worse, and is very annoying.
    • Henry and Captain Man fall into this trope hard. When they're not being insufferably annoying, they have personalities thinner than paper.
  • So Okay, It's Average: On its best days, it's harmless, but still brought down by flaws shared with the live-action series.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: This show could've been great, or at least decent, due to how there are virtually no limits of what can be done in animation, unlike live action. Instead, you get a generic superhero gag comedy with the jokes being bland and okay at best, and annoying and cringeworthy at worst. It's not even a good comedic parody. It doesn't help that the show has been panned for its GoAnimate-esque animation.
  • Uncertain Audience: This is probably a major factor as to why it gets very little positive attention. It's too far removed from the source material to appeal to fans, while also not doing enough to draw in new fans.

How well does it match the trope?
