YMMV / Jane and the Dragon

  • Accidental Aesop: Audiences tend to find morals in the stories, though the writers deny writing any episodes with a specific lesson in mind. The American edits took advantage of this (see And Knowing Is Half the Battle).
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The intro AND soundtrack.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: Fanfics that ship Jane and Gunther tend to play down his nastiness to the heroine and play up his angst over his deleterious relationship with his father. One wonders if fans would be so lenient if he weren't so handsome.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Jane x Gunther, Jane x Jester, and of course Rake x Pepper.
  • Foe Yay: Many fans ship Jane and Gunther in spite of their obvious hatred for one another. The creators of the show probably saw this coming and devoted an entire episode to the two dealing with rumors that they're in love. Naturally, this is probably the most popular episode.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Gunther. Though he often behaves unpleasantly and underhandedly toward the heroes of the show, one can see how his life is truly quite sad, and many viewers are sympathetic toward him; he is motherless, and in all likelihood a victim of child abuse by his Corrupt Corporate Executive father. He is also constantly torn between duties towards his amoral father and his duty to uphold the knight's code, perpetually between a rock and hard place from which he cannot escape, and Word Of God says he desperately wants to be liked, but just can't figure out how.
  • Uncanny Valley: The faces of the humans are a bit off.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: It's WETA. It's expected.
