* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: When the 2006 film ''Yo-Yo Girl Cop'' was announced, few people believed it could be another thing than the lumbering of a FranchiseZombie, as the lead actress was seen as a bad casting choice, the premise was thought to be too outdated, and it was believed that simply too many years had passed since the last time ''Sukeban Deka'' had hit the big screen. However, the movie broke all the expectations in box office and turned out successful enough to being distributed abroad for the first time ever.

* NarmCharm: The series's very premise and shenanigans, specially the famous yo-yo weapon, are very 80's Japanese and can be quite jarring nowadays, but that's why they are so awesome.

** Ironically, only a year after ''III'''s cancellation it was released its feature film, which dropped the supernatural elements and got back to the serious urban crime drama who was the spirit of ''Sukeban Deka'', and it happened to be significantly well received. The fans became naturally exasperated, as now it was clear that the franchise could have been saved had the producers taken this road earlier.

* {{Sequelitis}}: ''Sukeban Deka III''. Although the ''II'' movie introduced an interesting new Saki for this series, the production team decided to use ''Franchise/StarWars'' and Sho Kosugi's ''Ninja'' films as the making mould of their next storylines, and the third Saki Asamiya (who, uncharacteristically enough for the franchise, was rarely referred by this name) ended up being involved with ninjutsu, psychic powers and painfully unsubtle references to both film sagas. The series was increasingly unsuccesful during its run, and when it got cancelled, few people in Japan cried for it.

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: The 2006 film. Against all odds, it did very well in box office and was critically given the thumbs up. It had the effect of introducing a new generation of fans to the original series and manga, and it caused the franchise to be exported abroad. Part of the success is attributed to Yuki Saito's cameo as the original Saki Asamiya, who turned out to be alive after the events of the first series.
* WinBackTheCrowd: The 2006 film didn't bring the franchise back, but it proved it had a lot of gas in the tank.

* EvenBetterSequel: ''Sukeban Deka II'', the sequel to the TV series adaptation. Although it departed completely from the original material (as the manga had got its conclusion just like the first series), not only it reached the same level of popularity of the previous series, it surpassed it and raised the franchise to a entire new level, gaining a movie that opened the door for a third series and giving birth to discussions forever about who was the best incarnation of Saki Asamiya. Sadly, ''Sukeban Deka III'' then proceeded to make the franchise plumet (see Sequelitis below).
* FranchiseKiller: ''Sukeban Deka III''. Whether it was because of the fantastical elements, the bizarre and often confusing storyline or audiences finally tiring of the series, the series was unceremoniously cancelled and it ended the possibility of the world seeing more of Saki Asamiya.

Remi is quite good at putting on the façade of being the WhiteSheep, which she uses this to her advantage when she decides to brainwash her students for her personal army. She then gives Ayumi a rigged shotgun, steals all her money, has one of her brainwashed lackeys kill Emi and Gozo, and then laughs about "her poor sisters."
