YMMV / Riki-Oh

  • Awesome Music: "No Mercy" from the OVA.
  • Crazy Awesome: If you thought the movie was weird, based off the first story arc, you ain't seen nothing! Cyborgs, men who hide knives in their skin, hypnotic wolf-themed villain, cannibals, and more weird stuff! Riki is one big crazy awesome himself.
  • Fan Nickname: Fist of the Jew Star, due to the protagonist's similarities to Kenshiro and the Star of David on his fist.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The Cape arc features a nuclear power plant failing to cool down the reactor. The situation is worsened by a tsunami.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • Washizaki's head bulging and puking maggots is the stuff of nightmares.
    • In the same arc, there's a scene where Riki-Oh finds nuclear waste containers, what does he find inside? The irradiated decaying corpses of children.
    • Shirt Stripping.
    • There's plenty of flesh trauma. Nachi turns it into an artform by blowing the skin off numerous people including Washizaki.
