YMMV: Armored Trooper VOTOMS

  • Awesome Music: Honoo no Sadame, the opening theme. To have a taste, here's the original version and here's the Operation Extend edition.
  • Complete Monster: Unethical human experimentation and other human rights violations are no problem for Pailsen. His experiments on Sunsa involve burning hundreds of children to death to test them for the "unique survivalist" trait. In addition, the Red Shoulders themselves are essentially the Waffen-SS, and he forces them to fight and kill each other for his research. The Brainwashed and Crazy Zaki is a result of his other experiments, and later becomes the basis for PS research. He manipulates Wockam into starting a useless battle that leaves 120,000,000 Melkians and a huge number of Balarant dead, and feels no guilt about it.
  • Fan Nickname: "Dead Chirico", for Chirico whenever he's unconscious. This comes from the horribly Off Model way he's drawn whenever that happens.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Pailsen
  • Memetic Badass: Chirico. Taken Up to Eleven in Jigoku-hen when he can kill anything with his pistol.
  • Moral Event Horizon: We found out that the "traumatic" memory of Teitania getting hurt in a car accident and him repairing her as a Nextant was actually an intentional order to Vyacheslav's soldiers.
