YMMV: Time Bokan

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Has its own page!
  • Dork Age: Kiramekiman isn't particularly well-liked or remembered by longtime fans.
  • Ear Worm: A lot of the songs count as this. Be prepared to get them all stuck in your head.
  • Evil Is Sexy: All the female leaders of Terrible Trio.
  • Face of the Band: Yatterman serves as the Face of Time Bokan, with a lot of supplimentary materials relating to it in some way. Note how on Time Bokan's page image they make up the biggest part while the franchise namer is in the top right corner.
    • Yatterman's Doronbo Gang may even surpass the titular Yattermen in this regard- in fact, the 40th anniversary anime for the franchise is not only about Yatterman, but has the descendants of the Doronbo as its main focus!
  • No Export for You: Most of the Time Bokan series never made it completely overseas. Latin America managed to subvert it with the original Time Bokan, Yattodetaman, and Yatterman, and Italy managed to air the entirety of Yatterman to the point where it's one of their favorite anime. Streaming company Anime Sols tried to subvert this for Time Bokan by putting it on the internet, but have only 3 episodes subbed until enough funding could be provided for 14 more, and managed to sub 17 episodes of the 1977 and 2008 series of Yatterman before funding was cut from the project. The rest of the franchise hasn't had a chance yet.
    • Sentai Filmworks managed to subvert the trope for the Royal Revival OVAs by distributing them on DVD and on Hulu subbed.
    • Any of the various Time Bokan games created were also never released overseas, and it's likely they never will.
  • Marth Debuted in Smash Bros.: Ippatsuman's appearance in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom might be the first time people in the west have seen him. In fact, it might be the first time a non-Yatterman character from the franchise has been seen outside of their series at all.
    • This effect might have occurred with the villains of Time Bokan, as the Royal Revival OVAs focuses primarily on them. Since a great deal of their series were never released overseas, most of the villain teams would be unfamiliar to a western audience.
  • Sequel Displacement: Yatterman, Yatterman, Yatterman. Technically counts, since the series not only has two movies to its name, but a sequel series, two video games, and even a cameo in a highly anticipated fighting game with ALL main characters appearing as fighters.
  • Villain-Based Franchise: Let's be frank, who remembers the names of the heroes? Everyone loves the Terrible Trio, though.
    • Specifically, one Terrible Trio: the Doronbo Gang. These wacky villains have been at the center of many adaptations, including both Royal Revival OVAs and numerous games. So much, in fact, that the distant sequel series is about their descendants instead of Gan and Ai's.
