YMMV: Dinosaur King
- Designated Villain: The Alpha Gang in the first few episodes, actually. We don't actually see them doing anything evil until it's revealed that they brainwash the dinosaurs they capture. Before then, it just looks like all they're doing is reclaiming the cards that are rightfully theirs, and the heroes appear to be rushing into battle without even bothering to try to communicate with them.
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff The Series is very popular in Europe.
- Moral Event Horizon: In the eyes of the viewers, Seth crosses it when he short-circuits Helga. Chronologically, however, he crosses it when he betrays Drs. Ancient and Cretacea (though this is not revealed until long afterwards). When he creates the black T. rex, even the rest of the Alpha Gang thinks he's gone too far.
- Superlative Dubbing: Many fans tend to consider this one of the very few anime 4kids didn't screw up.
