YMMV: Phantom 2040

  • Jerkass Woobie: Maxwell Madison Jr. He's one of the bad guys, and pretty creepy as well, but it's still easy to feel sorry for him. When you consider that Rebecca raised him, you realize he has a valid Freudian Excuse if anyone does.
  • No Problem with Licensed Games: This series got an even more obscure videogame for the SNES and Sega Genesis. It's a Metroidvania shooter with plenty of weapons, with emphasis on the use of a Grappling-Hook Pistol. There's a lot of areas and subareas to explore, and a branching plot with Multiple Endings. A great but obscure game for both systems. Even if you don't know the series, you owe it to yourself to try it.
  • Seasonal Rot: In what is possibly one of the quickest onsets of this trope ever, the latter half of season 2 is noticeably more episodic and less well-written than the rest of the series. The series finale in particular feels rushed and incomplete. This was caused initially by Executive Meddling trying to make the show more accessible to kids, then by the show's production staff learning that cancellation was imminent and scrambling to give the series a proper ending. Despite this, many still consider the series to have been too good to last overall. ...At least it got a proper ending. That's a lot more than can be said for many other series that faced similar circumstances.
