YMMV / Juuni Senshi Bakuretsu Eto Ranger

  • Draco in Leather Pants: Chocolat is often written as Easily Forgiven due to the Freudian Excuse. Rouran gets similar treatment, sometimes being shipped with Souffle.
  • Ear Worm:
  • Evil Is Sexy: Nyanma, with her open cloak and Stripperiffic outfit.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: In what very, very little fan art there is of the show, a good portion of it is with Tartnote  x Pochiro.
    • Pochiro also has a lot of potential to be paired with Jyuken The Gatekeeper after a scene where she glomps him in episode 31.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The series still has a rather active Chinese fanbase, especially on Baidu. Given what the series is about, it's not that surprising.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
  • Iron Woobie: The Eto Rangers become this at the climax of the series after watching their friends die.
  • Jerkass Woobie:
    • Tart is a huge Jerkass with a Hair-Trigger Temper and violent tendencies, but is out-jerkassed in Episode 5.
    • Monk is another example, as he frequently engages in pranks that upset people, but he also gets plenty of moments where he's on the receiving end of humiliation and in the Grand Finale, Monk goes berserk when Pochiro sacrifices himself to save Monk.
    • Chocolat, as her rampage is her attempt to get revenge against Princess Aura, who she thought had promised her a victory in the Etoranger qualification race if she started early, then disqualified her for seemingly no reason. Learning Bagi was behind it all adds to this.
    • Pochiro often picks on Monk and one time deliberately kicked a soccer ball at Tart but he's just so cute that you can't hate him. Watching him die to protect Monk is downright heartbreaking.
    • Bakumaru himself is a loudmouth Bratty Half-Pint but he's practically beaten half to death by Geton in the Mouse's wedding episode. Plus, he also was a vicious speciest in the Puss In Boots episode but you still have to feel some sympathy for him on account on his PTSD-ish reactions to cats. By the climax of the series, Bakumaru has experienced so much loss that you just want to hug the poor brat.
  • Memetic Loser: Nyorori. He tries so hard to be this badass and suave Gadgeteer Genius, but his creations are only ever shown falling apart, he hardly does anything useful throughout the entire series, and his character design is utterly adorable.
  • Moe:
    • Souffle the Lamb is the girliest and cutesiest member of the team. Her A Day in the Limelight episode firmly cements how lovable she is.
    • Pochiro. Whenever he shows his goofier, lighthearted, more comedic side, you can expect extreme levels of adorkble-ness that would give even Nyorori a run for his money. It's especially evident if Pochiro isn't wearing his usual outfit.
    • Urii, who's an adorable little piglet and the Tagalong Kid of the rangers.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Nyanma crossed it immediately after her initial transformation, when she invoked Redshirt Reporter and shot Lydia just because he was there.
  • Never Live It Down: Hols and his Wholesome Crossdresser moment, brought on by a misfired spell from Corrupted Snow White. It only lasted for a few seconds and isn't brought up again, but it's brought up among the fandom a lot.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Hols and Drago are the two least-used out of all the Rangers, being the only ones to never get focus episodes. Their Image Songs reveal that they're a constantly-agonized Stepford Smiler and a Not So Stoic Technical Pacifist, respectively. The fandom generally agrees that they both could have been explored a lot better.
  • Toy Ship: Urii x Little Red Riding Hood. While whether it was actually a romance or just a friendship is left ambiguous, the other team members sure seemed to think it was the former.
  • Unpopular Popular Character: While Tart's humanoid form has plenty of fans, she was by no means ugly in her original form like she was led to believe by the team, and most fans still prefer and depict her as a chicken.
  • The Woobie:
    • Jyuken starts out being portrayed like the rest of the Jyarei, but is slowly revealed to be treated like dirt by the others, to the point where even during her most successful and dangerous act, she's only considered a decoy. This culminates when her character arc ends in a Shoot the Shaggy Dog, not only never getting a real chance at redemption but also making Nyanma even more powerful.
    • The corrupted wolf in the Little Red Riding Hood episode is so pathetic and terrified of being eaten that he could really use a hug.
