YMMV / Mahou Sentai Magiranger
Anvilicious: This is not a show that believes in subtlety, especially when it comes to messages about family.
Awesome Music: Some of the more notable vocal songs created for the series.
Madou Kishi Wolzard performed by NoB.
Shining Magic Magishine performed by Psychic Lover.
Mahou Sentai Magiranger Opening performed by Iwasaki Takafumi.
Make Legend! Magiranger! performed by Mizuki Ichirou.
Go! Yellow Thunder performed by Matsumoto Hiroya, Tsubasa's actor and used for his victory over the Hades God Cyclops.
Fantastic! MagiAction performed by Takatori Hideaki.
Song For Magitopia performed by Mizuki Ichirou, Kushida Akira, and Kageyama Hironobu.
Majin Gattai! MagiKing! performed by Masaki Endoh.
Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The confrontation with the Monster of the Week in stage 14 takes place in an old west style setting.
Crazy Awesome: Many of the spells take on unusual forms, yet are devastating in no small part because of this.
"Go Fight! Magi Magi Magiranger! Shinjite Future. OK! All right!Yuuki wokono te ni...Tabidatte!" Magi! Magi Magiro! Magi! Magi Magika! The high voice doesn't help either.
Damn'it! I can't take that song Mandara Boy sings about the 5 magicians out of my head!
Even Better Sequel: To Dekaranger.
Evil Is Sexy: Vancuria, Queen Vampire, can split into Twin Loli Goths.
Family-Unfriendly Aesop: As with before, our heroes see no problem with cheating at games of chance to rescue those most important to them.
Choujin Sentai Jetman Tsubasa is dealt with one (combined with Fantastic Aesop since it involves ghosts) about letting dead people go.
Fan Nickname: MagiShine? Surely you mean MagiPimp.
Foe Yay: Houka with both Nai and Mea.
Germans Love David Hasselhoff: While it was successful in Japan, Magiranger was so popular in Korea, they're making an MMO game based on the series. IN 2011.
Growing the Beard: The show definitely comes into its own with the introduction of the Heavenly Saint Lunagel in stage 16.
Hilarious in Hindsight: In stage 22, the Magirangers end up in a Jidai Geki themed Marudeyona World and are forced to dress and fight like ninjas. The core cast would later appear in Chou Ninja Tai Inazuma, a Super Sentai parody set in the Jidai Geki period with our heroes being magically empowered ninjas.
Holy Shit Quotient: Stage 42 explodes past all limits with WolKentauros vs. Hades God Sleipnir on his chariot, complete with nod to Ben Hur!
Like You Would Really Do It: As though the writers were really going to kill off Blagel, Sungel, and Miyuki at the very end.
Magnificent Bastard: Both Meemy and Dagon pull off some very cunning plans through expert manipulation of both the heroes and the other villains.
Moral Event Horizon: N Ma destroying Magitopia and killing Sungel and Blagel, Dagon killing Titan.
Meemy crossed it with his betrayal of Magitopia.
Nightmare Fuel: Belbireji the Incubis uses this both as his primary powerset, and is generally very creepy.
Rewatch Bonus: Watching again for all the foreshadowing regarding Wolzard's true identity and Miyuki's true fate is practically a must.
I Knew It: Wolzard appearing so similar to the Magirangers from the moment he arrived was enough to tell some people that he was the missing father of the Ozu family.
Special Effect Failure: The premier of Travelion's Destruction Fire Reverse Spray is decidedly underwhelming.
Tear Jerker: Stage 28's Star-Crossed Lovers plot was simply heart-wrenching when you realize that by Rei's Death by Origin Story, this killed any chances of Tsubasa getting the girl. The kicker? The song of the same name of the episode, "Eien ni..." (Eternally...) is mind-numbingly depressing as well and plays at the end of the episode, when Rei finally moves on to the afterlife.
Visual Effects of Awesome: In Stage 9, FireKaiser's Flaming Bari Javelin is actually on fire, and not just for Stock Footage!
What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: For a series revolving around a heartwarming "Family" theme, MagiRanger can be pretty dark when it comes to human casualities; victims are killed off in ways as NightmareFuel-ish as possible , and after they die, note they stay dead.
The Woobie: Tsubasa.
