YMMV / WatchMojo

Go To

  • Archive Panic: Over 12,000 videos on the original channel, with 700 extra on Ms Mojo. They upload everyday, too.
  • Face of the Band: Rebecca Brayton is the company's most distinctive voice-over host. Dan Paradis was also prominent, especially for the video game videos, until he left the company in 2019.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The "Top 10 Cameos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe" video featured Stan Lee on the thumbnail and listed him as #1. However, the video was released shortly after Lee passed away.
  • He Panned It, Now He Sucks!:
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In their "Top 10 Cartoons That Deserve Their Own Live Action Movie" video, they ranked Kim Possible at #2, and took a jab at Disney by saying that maybe they'll make a Kim Possible movie when they find some time between the Marvel and Star Wars films in the next thirty years. Almost a week after the top ten was uploaded, Disney announced that a live action Kim Possible movie was in the works.
  • It's the Same, Now It Sucks!: Having a large fanbase in South America, WatchMojo made a Latin Spanish channel where they translated their videos as well made original ones for this channel (mostly about Telenovelas and TV series from this continent). The problem is when they literally translated videos still using American dubbing (and edition) instead Latin Spanish dubbing, which made angry a lot of fans, not seen in dislikes but in comments. This is mostly seen in anime videos of classic series like Dragon Ball and Saint Seiya or series that shouldn't be dubbed/edited like One Piece and Bleach. Also this counts for English-spoken animations that have beloved Latin American dubbings like The Simpsons and Shrek.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • "WatchMojo is running out of ideas!" The company even took this in stride and sold shirts that said, "Running out of ideas since 2005".
    • The "You're Running Out of Ideas" Troll is given a dishonorable mention on the "Top 10 Types of Internet Trolls" video.
    • Top 10 Anime List Parodies, which parody their endlessly invariant title format and iffy research on subjects. Which also received acknowledgment when it reached number one on their Top 10 Anime Memes list.
  • Seasonal Rot: While there is debate on how bad WatchMojo has become, most agree that it's lost steam over the years with rather bizarre lists (i.e. "WatchMojo has run out of ideas"), tendencies for errors to slip through the cracks, and an often overly cynical attitude.
  • So Okay, It's Average: The general consensus is that, despite some lists that landed them in infamy, they're not really anything special. Especially so when you compare them to members of the Countdown Community like The Autarch and Joshscorcher, among others.

How well does it match the trope?
