YMMV / Shadow Raiders

  • Awesome Music: The main title is suitably epic.
  • Broken Base: Fans of the show generally can't decide amongst themselves whether Femur is an obnoxious line-stealing distraction from the main plot, or a much needed comic relief character in an otherwise nihilistic cosmic horror series.
  • Genius Bonus: As with all Mainframe Entertainment productions, classic quotations and references abound throughout the series, particularly in episode titles. J'accuse deals with a murder accusation against respected soldier Jade and Ragnarok brings about the end of the traditional Cluster society. As with ReBoot and Beast Wars, Mainframe shows that being a children's show does not mean intelligence is left at the door.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • A sci-fi Cosmic Horror Story about an unstoppable mechanical Eldritch Abomination where the heroes have to unite a divided galaxy to fight the looming threat? Sounds familiar.
    • A mechanical monster planet whose first shown act is eating a world of living robots, only to have their one survivor deliver exposition on its identity to the heroes later? Deja vu.
  • The Scrappy: Lord Mantle is a warmongering Jerkass whose attempts to usurp leadership of the Alliance from Graveheart and establish Rock as the supreme power in the Cluster only make things worse for the Alliance. Granted, it seems he was an intentional example.
