YMMV / Winnie the Pooh's Home Run Derby

Go To

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Is Pooh an ultimate badass who hits massive home-runs at a regular basis and is able to defeat even the greatest pitchers (e.g. all of his opponents), or is he an incompetent batter who often sends balls flying behind him, and finds himself in a very unfortunate spot with all of his friends possessing superhuman pitching skills?
  • Breather Level: Rabbit's often considered to be slightly easier than Kanga and Roo, the preceding opponent.

  • Ear Worm: As much as this game will live in infamy, the light and breezy main theme during matches is pretty good (if unfitting).
  • Fridge Horror: To such an extent that the Darth Wiki page tells all.
  • "Holy Shit!" Quotient: Both due to the murderous Surprise Difficulty and the physics defying pitches.
  • Memetic Badass:
    • Christopher Robin has been viewed as a Physical God due to his notorious pitching ability.
    • To a lesser extent, Pooh himself, given that he hits 500-foot home runs on a regular basis and - provided the player is skilled enough - scores home runs off said Physical God.
  • Memetic Mutation: The game itself, as well as Cr1TiKaL's (NSFW) playthrough of it.
    Most owls can turn their heads 270 degrees in both directions. This owl can fuck itself in all directions.
  • Moment of Awesome: Anyone who ever defeats Christopher Robin. Like Mr. Takahashi.

  • Periphery Demographic: This was apparently at a fighting game tournament. It has that much of a fanbase among hardcore gamers. It also has quite the fanbase among Cosmic Horror Story fans, due to the memes related to the game described in That One Boss below.
  • Ron the Death Eater: This game has managed to change people's opinion of these lovable characters, interpreting them as The Legions of Hell, with Christopher Robin as their leader Satan.
  • Surprise Difficulty: Since it's a Winnie the Pooh game, and a Flash game at that, most people going in imagine it's probably just one of those cheap preschool-level Flash games that anyone with any sort of intelligence could beat...completely unaware that the game gets Nintendo Hard and near-impossible to beat after the first few levels.
  • That One Boss:
    • Christopher Robin, perhaps even by this game's standards and Final Boss standards. There's a reason he's described as Satan, Physical God, and Eldritch Abomination in this game. You have to hit forty homeruns out of fifty balls. Christopher Robin can use a combination of all of the strategies of the other characters, and will usually use Kanga and Roo's or Owl's technique. And he's capable of using invisible balls too, previously utilised by Tigger. He can throw balls normally too, but they're usually too fast for you to hit.

    • Any boss after Piglet thanks to their erratic physics defying pitches.
      • Out of all of said bosses, Owl and Tigger are often considered the most difficult second only to Christopher Robin. Owl's pitch has the ball do rapid zig-zags in the air, so you have to be ridiculously precise on the hit, and even then it's mostly dependent on chance. Tigger is just as bad if not worse - since his pitch has the ball seemingly vanish from existence halfway to the plate, making it total dumb luck if you manage to hit the ball. Worse is that you have to hit twenty eight homeruns out of forty.
    • Even Eeyore, Lumpy and Piglet themselves can be this. The game is that difficult.
