Merchandise-Driven: Par for the course, but the Hillhurst Monsters got their own figures. In a multi-pack gift set, no less!
Screwed by the Network: They never got rid of the villains of the second season, because they couldn't find a way to force them back into the comic books. In reality they ran out of Japanese footage to use, but still ending on a never to be resolved cliffhanger? That's wrong.
What Could Have Been: There is some speculation that Saban might have used the B-fighter footage to produce more seasons of VR Troopers having run out of the previous footage of Metal Heroes that was being used. Not wanting to alienate fans, VR Troopers was canceled and B-fighter was adapted into Beetleborgs instead.
