YMMV / SilverHawks

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The theme song — especially the guitar solo by Bluegrass.
  • Cult Classic: The series is best remembered for being "That show that wasn't Thunder Cats."
  • Fridge Horror: When you stop and think about it, the Silverhawks gave up a good chunk of their physical humanity in order to become the heroes that they are. Being a kids 80s show this could be seen as Angst? What Angst? at play, thus the obvious Body Horror is not really touched on.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The series was (and some people might argue it still is) HUGE in Latin America, specially México. It isn't rare seeing whole conventions stop for a couple of seconds if the theme starts playing only to sing along to it.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The Silverhawks try to add human racial diversity in later members, but in truth the Mob is probably your better model for diversity albeit in a fantastical way. But either way through a modern lens the mob looks a lot more accepting to members than the Silverhawks are.
  • Ho Yay: Between Commander Stargazer and Condor. There's something rather... affectionate about the way Condor calls Stargazer "Gaze" after all.
  • The Scrappy: For some viewers, Copper Kid. He's not halfway as bad as other token children in other shows, though.
    • Seymour and Zeke the Beak may fit the definition more, though for what it's worth they're nowhere near as annoying as Snarf and Snarfer from ThunderCats (1985).
