YMMV: Redakai

  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • The Imperiaz: Their backstory is sympathetic, so they got many fans before their actual first appearance in the actual show, where they get treated like dirt not worthy of sympathy. Hasn't stopped them from getting it, though, and many fans are mad at the writers for not portraying them more sympathetically.
    • Season 2 does pour on the sympathy when Zane yanks Imperiaz's chain by taking up Lokar's blackmail indefinitely right when the were about to free their parents. And the finale does throw a quick bone Nan and Berkby's way when the Prism Kairu's curing of the Shadow Kairu also releases them from their crystal prison.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: In episode seven, Team Stax deal with the "villain" of the day, an otherwise helpless paleontologist who had knocked them off a cliff while trying to capture a newly revived Pterodactyl, by stringing him by his ankles to said Pterodactyl letting it fly off with him. Ummmm...
  • Growing the Beard: Late season 1 and season 2 with regards to shaking up the status quo established in early and mid-season 1.
  • The Scrappy: Mookee. He is TheMillstone whenever he does anything other than pilot Team Stax's ship; his voice is annoying and he comes across as a racist caricature of Asians with his Fu Manchu mustache, squinty eyes and buck teeth. In one episode he, wants to be a Kairu warrior and when Team Stax lets him, he spends the whole fight fanboying then trips and accidentally fires a laser at the tree they were trying to protect. After being called out on this he promises to get better. Then in the next fight, he screws up again, but gets lucky and saves the day through his clumsiness. Everyone treats him like a great hero for this, but at least they decide not to let him be a Kairu warrior anymore. Whether or not his infrequent appearances after early season 1 is a good thing or not is up to you.
