YMMV / Chuck Norris Karate Kommandos

  • Complete Monster: The Claw is the leader of VULTURE, a cabinet of terrorists willing to wreak vast destruction under the Claw's firm eye in their goal of world domination. The Claw, throughout the series, hijacks an undersea lab to use its powers to try and wipe out coastal cities; tries to seize a NATO memory core to disable their defenses; coldly orders Norris's young friend Too Much murdered; attempts to seize a powerful laser robot to use it to attack and devastate Tokyo and orders a train full of people transporting it spitefully destroyed; and steals a shuttle to try and extort billions of dollars out of all the world's major powers lest he use a Kill Sat to obliterate all of the capital cities of each powerful country around the world. Throughout the series, the Claw regularly tortures and murders his own minions with aplomb and is happy to claim as many civilian lives as it takes to further his own nefarious agenda.
  • Drinking Game: Seriously. Just watch the opening and take a shot whenever Chuck's name is said. To save you from getting drunk, it's twelve times (nine as Chuck Norris, two as Chuck, one as Norris).
  • Ethnic Scrappy: Too Much and Tabe.
  • Foe Yay: Super Ninja's sole motive for being a bad guy seems to be so that he can grapple with Norris on a regular basis. His scenes with the Big Bad usually go like this:
    The Claw: Blah, blah, MacGuffin, blah, blah, Chuck Norris, blah—
    Super Ninja: NNOOORRIISSS!!!
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The comic book adaptation features more or less the first ever Chuck Norris fact (given by enemies in his presence, no less).
  • Idiot Plot: "Menace from Space". If you're in the process of launching a space shuttle, and you know that terrorists have already infiltrated the airbase and are trying to board the shuttle at that very moment, you stop the countdown and abort the launch. You do not allow the shuttle to take off with the terrorists aboard so they can use it as a platform for their Wave Motion Gun.
  • The Scrappy: Too Much is as clear an example of this trope as you're likely to find.
