YMMV / Galidor

  • Accidental Innuendo: "Nick's inside Gorm," from the last episode. Context doesn't help much, since he is literally inside of Gorm's body.
  • Audience-Alienating Premise: An action figure franchise that was LEGO In-Name-Only owing to its complete lack of brickbuilding and incompatibility with virtually every other set in the LEGO catalog cements Galidor as this for the entire LEGO brand.
  • Cliché Storm: Just try reading the page description without groaning. This may as well be Generic Space Opera: The Series.
  • Cult Classic: It's a very short lived, esoteric show, but it does have its fans.
  • Dork Age/The Scrappy: The entire series itself for LEGO fans, even LEGO themselves. It's often considered their worst-performing toy-line, from which they've tried to distance themselves as much as possible. This is mostly because the toys required very minimal construction, and the pieces were bulky and overspecialized, mostly incompatible with "normal" LEGO parts. The theme served as a lesson for the company not to rely too much on tie-in media (like the TV show, video game and McDonald's promo), and instead focus on what they had already excelled at: making building toys.note 
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Gorm's line "Bluetooth is gone. He'll never see the Outer Dimension again!" in "The Gates Of Galidor Part 2." The show was cancelled after that episode, so neither Nick nor the audience ever saw the Outer Dimension again.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In "Go For the Bronze," Gorm describes Nick as "the Ultimate Warrior."
  • No Problem with Licensed Games: The old Fox Kids website had a tie-in video game for the series that was apparently very enjoyable to play.
  • Tear Jerker: Allegra staying behind and saying "good-bye" to Nick at the end of "Mr. Tager Goes To Earth." She comes back, but it's still a sad scene.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Lind, a Galidorian, was introduced very late into the series. While she did become a Sixth Ranger for the team, she interacted little with anyone but Nick, her combat training is barely shown, and when they finally get to Galidor, it's not shown what happened when she finally returned home. She even trained under Gorm, which would've made for more interesting plots and conflicts if it hadn't been brought up within the last 10 minutes of the last episode.
  • Uncanny Valley: Many of the toys were guilty of this owing to the entire "glinching" theme, which lent itself to some very awkward and even unfortunate configurations among the action figures.
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: Nick. He is very self-centered for little to no reason and often causes conflicts due to his selfishness. While he might be The Chosen One, he has absolutely no combat training, so he's basically a Small Name, Big Ego Chosen Zero. In fact, Nicky from "A Tale of Two Nicks" might have some viewers wishing he was the Nick we were following since he's far more competent with fewer resources.
  • The Woobie: Euripides, whose entire race was destroyed by Gorm, Jens, whose body was destroyed by Gorm, and Nepol, whose physique was diminished by Gorm.
