YMMV: Ninja Sentai Kakuranger
  • Awesome Music: The opening.
  • Ear Worm: The opening: "''KakuRanger, ni~nja, ninja!"
    "Are wa nan-nan ja? Nanja, nanja?
    Nin-Ninja, ninja, ninja!
    KakuRanger, ninja, ninja!
    Ninja... Sentai... KakuRanger."
    • The ending qualifies too:
      "Doro-doro-dororon, shuri-shuri-shuriken
      Dance! Dance!
      Doro-doro-dororon, bishi-bishi-makibishi
      Dance! Dance!"
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Tsuruhime. This lady will usually not be missing in any fans' 'Favorite Sentai Heroine' list (and even a lot of times, get to #1 spot, beating even modern heroines too). Her cameo in Gokaiger is very well received too. Being the first female 'leader' will do that to you at times.
    • Jiraiya has also become one thanks to Kane Kosugi's later career.
  • Fan Nickname: The Hana no Kunoichi Gumi are often referred to by fans as the "Hanaranger" team.
  • Jerkass Woobie: The Monster of the Week in episode 3 genuinely liked Jiraiya and was sad when his new friend betrayed him.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Kane Kosugi has moved on to Hollywood after this, starting from the US-made Ultraman Powered (aka Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero) and appearing in movies like DOA: Dead or Alive (being Ryu Hayabusa no less) and battling Jet Li in War.
    • He was also a regular in the earlier runs of Ninja Warrior, which in Japan is named...Sasuke.
  • Vindicated by History: While always liked by fans, it's gained a cult following these days for it's more light-hearted atmosphere and Tsuruhime and Jiraiya
  • The Woobie: You WILL feel sorry for Sekai in #7.
