YMMV / Denji Sentai Megaranger

  • Bizarro Episode: Episode 18. It involves Kouichi meeting a forest spirit (in what is otherwise a show about technology), a funghi-based Nezire with fire powers, and a gag involving Miku comparing a cow's udders to Chisato's nipples.
  • Complete Monster: Commander Guirail is a seriously depraved creature with love of underhanded tactics, whatever it takes to win. Even children wouldn't be spared. His favorite tactic seems to be using human shields. Anyone's fair game, even his ally Yugande: After "tricking" him to work together for the common cause, Guirail makes him take full brunt of damage when the chips are down against him. He's the only one amongst Nejirejia Kingdom who knows nothing of "family/companionship" value: The moment Yugande was subjected of those things, both Hinelar and Shibolena were thoroughly disgusted and socked him with a Psycho Serum under the guise of power-up in revenge of what he did to Yugande.
  • Ear Worm: That Diet Crepe song. It's great, funny, catchy and won't leave your brain. Have fun
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The Nezirangers, for obvious reasons.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Shibolena. Need we say more?
  • Fridge Brilliance: Why are the Megaranger suits the same safe color and a slight tweak of vizor shape? It's cause this season heavily involves video games, and in the mid-90s when this came out, Palette Swaps were common.
  • Foe Yay: Yugande and Guirail.
    • Kenta and Gurail, and Chisato and Shibolena, as well.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: At one point, Shun fell asleep in a computer while continually pressing the 'Delete' button. Later in Masaya Matsukaze's seiyuu career... what would be his most infamous words? SAKUJO!!/DELETE!!
  • Ho Yay: In episode 6, Miku tells a boy that wants to date her that she likes another person. When the other Megarangers asked who that is, Miku grabs Chisato's hand and goes to take her for tea. It's a minor example as, later on the series, it's revealed that she likes Shun, as well as Chisato being shocked by Miku's choice and actions.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Doctor Hinelar.
  • Narm Charm: The English version of the opening song, as featured in episode 44.
  • The Scrappy: That girl from #39, who finds out Megared's identity and blackmails him to do everything for her. Annoying brat.
  • Tough Act to Follow: Not the series itself, but rather, one of the specific arcs, the Neziranger arc. The arc executed the Psycho Rangers concept so well that Toei hasn't tried anything else like it since then - although evil rangers have been used since, a team in the same vein as the Nezirangers hasn't been made.
  • Win Back the Crowd: Thanks to Carranger, Toei has given another shot in saving Sentai from being cancelled and Megaranger did exactly just that.
  • The Woobie: Kenta.
