YMMV: Cybersix
  • Complete Monster: Dr von Reichter. When describing why he had to destroy the Cybers, we're treated to a shot of a Fixed Idea forcing a nine-year-old Cyber into a meat grinder. Alive. Feet first.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Cybersix kills one monster by dropping a suspension bridge on it.
    • When Detective Yashimoto owns Jose and his blatantly false accusation that Cybersix robbed him.
    Jose: Name your price!
    Yashimoto: Money is of no importance to me. I only take cases I believe in.
    Jose: Are you calling me a liar?
    Yashimoto: I did not calling you anything. Now please, go.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The opening theme song.
    • They also recorded a full three minute version, which has never been released and probably never will be (unless Discotek Media has anything to say about it).
    • The ending song isn't that bad, either.
  • Ear Worm: The opening song.
  • Ho Yay: Many of Adrian's and Lucas' scenes come off this way.
    • Lucas invites Adrian to see a romantic comedy with him. 'Nuff said.
      • He even winks on the word "romantic" when he offers!
  • I Am Not Shazam: Sort of. The lead character's name as written on her left arm is 'Cyber 6', and the comic explains that she is the last survivor of a previously-wiped-out 'cyber series' (occasionally referenced in the show). But the title sequence says 'Cybersix', and characters often pronounce it that way, run together as one word.
    • The only character who calls her "Cyber Six" is her creator, Von Reichter.
  • Macekre: Largely averted in the sense that most of the darker elements, such as Von Reichter's being a Nazi, are not censored, but simply glossed over and not mentioned.
    • A little bit of the more sexual content was censored, though. For instance, Lori's "valentine" from the first episode was an offer for a quickie in the hall in the original.
  • Mexicans Love Speedy Gonzales: While having a character who is a giant Japanese racist stereotype. How does it do this? It takes a guy with extremely squinty eyes, glasses, and buckteeth who knows kung fu and whose Leitmotif is done with a Japanese instrument... and it makes him a brilliant detective with a grappling hook, lots and lots of ingenious technology, and the most insane biking skills in the world. His little sister, sharing the teeth and eyes, drove it even further by being dressed in a kimono the entire time. She was adorable, though, and was able to keep her cool while having been kidnapped, impressive considering that she looked pretty young. In the show's defense, however, this was an episode that was based off a storyline in the original series, and the designs were likely lifted from the comics too.
    • And it's pretty clear that his kung fu was just meant to confuse the Fixed Ideas. Josť eventually waves them aside and tries to perform some kung fu of his own, only to fall on his butt as Yashimoto makes his escape.
    • The obvious one, he figures out Cybersix's identity using genuine detective skills and physical agility that allows him to actually keep up with her.
    • Also some of the features of them, like the buck teeth, were shared by a number of Caucasian characters as well.
    • Plus his voice is anything but stereotypical "Asian." He actually could stand in for Batman if he wanted.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Lots of it in the cartoon. Some notable examples are seeing Lucas as a werewolf version of himself, birds attacking citizens in a homage to The Birds and an island-sized bomb with a grotesque appearance.
  • Tear Jerker: The ending of the episode, Terra.
    • Also, when it appears that Cybersix is blown up in the last episode. Though it is implied she is alive at the end of the episode.
  • Villain Decay: Jose falls into this in the cartoon, what with his constant appearances and failures. Averted in the final episode though, where he betrays his father so he can call the shots, leaving him to die in the base explosion.
  • The Woobie: Terra, from his self-titled episode. Poor thing was one of the more sentient Mooks who wanted to understand love as Cyber knew it, but was forced to go after harsh alterations and verbal beatdowns from Jose, until the end when Terra sacrifices himself to rescue Cyber from burning to death.
