Trivia: Ronin Warriors
  • Anime First: The two-volume manga that followed was an adaption of the TV series and aimed at a younger male audience. The one volume manga Shin Yoroiden-Samurai Troopers published afterward was based on the TV series but disregarded the events of the OVAs.
  • Executive Meddling: Playmates Toys, the American manufacturer for the toys, insisted the show make up a new character for the Inferno armor version of Ryo, thinking the target audience would get confused why there are two Ryo figures. This resulted in the dub-only character of Hariel.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Many fans didn't believe the show would ever be put out on DVD. And while the entire animated series was eventually released on DVD in the early 2000s, within the last few years, Bandai Entertainment decided not to retain the rights to the show.
  • No Export for You: Good luck finding the manga.
    • Althought the pages are not in English, the manga can be found here with summaries in English.
  • The Other Darrin: A rather extreme, albeit brief example, occurs in the American dub. According to several sources, the entire primary cast had head colds when recording the first couple of episodes, so the studio had to use temporary replacements. As a result, fans heard a rather obvious Vocal Evolution between episodes 1 (primary cast), 2 (the replacements), and 3 (primary cast).
    • The OVA series also makes do with replacing a few of the characters' voices.
