YMMV: Daimos
  • Complete Monster: We have two. The first is Big Bad king Olban of the Winged Humanoid Brahmin race. While most Brahmins are Anti-Villain or Noble Demon types, Olban is a power-hungry, cold hearted tyrant who states his people only exist for him to rule them. Olban rose to power by murdering the previous king, and masterminded the war between the Brahmins and humanity. He blamed the humans for his ruler's death, taking advantage of the Brahmins' despair after the loss of their power and risking their extinction simply to gain him more to rule. He displays no compunction in attempting to murder his dead sovereign's children as well.
    • Chief General of Earth, Sakimori Miwa, a brutal General Ripper who believes the best way to win a war is to exterminate your enemy to the last man. Ostensibly on the heroes' side, Miwa tries to undermine them at every time, even accusing them of treason and despite his job being to protect humanity, he doesn't care when civilians are caught in the crossfire. He also proceeds to execute groups of defeated and helpless Brahmins simply out of hatred. In many ways, the genocidal, brutal Miwa is simply as bad as the power hungry Olban.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: When you hear the whoosh, it means shut up and listen to Isao Sasaki.
  • Filipinos Love Daimos: Every Filipino's fave super robot second to Voltes V.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In Starbirds, the crappy American dub, the MacGuffin is called the "Crystal Light". Crystal Lite is a lines of powdered lemonade mixes, so it sounds like they're fighting for their beverages.
  • Narm Charm: The Filipino-English dub. This being a 70's dub, lowering a bit of standards before watching is advised.
