YMMV: Gamera Vs Viras

  • Sequelitis: Generally regarded as where this started to kick in for the Showa series.
  • So Bad, It's Good: To many fans, but this film is still the start of Gamera's downward spiral into a laughing stock.
    • Though Gamera vs. Jiger would undue some of the damage slightly while still being plenty So Bad, It's Good.
  • Tear Jerker: Y'know for all their stupidity and annoyance it was pretty cool that Jim and Masao beckoned for the military to attack the ship because two children dying would be nothing to handing the Earth over. Their parent's absolute distraught at such a choice is one of the few genuinely heartbreaking moments from the Showa series.
