*AdultFear: Daisaku/Johnny and Mari (the two child agents of Unicorn) weld guns, get captured all the while the villians try to put an inch of their lives. The absolute crowner is in the [[GrandFinale Grand Finale]] where Daisaku/Johnny [[spoiler:Is shot by a sniper and everyone thinks he is dead even though he was fine due to wearing ''the iron vest'' but still]]. The fact that Johnny wasn't allowed to tell his family about his status as UNICORN agent makes it worse.



**BigGood: Chief Azuma



* OurMonstersAreWeird: ''And how''. Giant eyeballs with legs, Robot hands, Robot ''Jawbones'' Giant rolling balls that shoot out rockets from it's tips, and that's just only a few of the weird things Big Fire uses...
