YMMV / Transformers Victory

  • Ear Worm: Both the opening and closing themes.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Aside from Star Saber, Kakuryu and Hellbat seem to be the most popular characters. The former even received a toy in the United EX line, twenty years later!
  • Spiritual Successor: The Brave Series takes a lot of cues (and even some mecha designs!) from Transformers Victory.
  • Values Dissonance: Killbison and a human farmer each give the finger a few times. In Japan, at least at the time, the gesture wasn't considered offensive, but it would be completely inappropriate in a kids' show in America and several other countries.
  • The Scrappy: Several fans dislike Jan as a very annoying kid, in contrast to the previous series' Shuta. While Shuta does contribute by being a Headmaster Jr., Jan is often seen as The Load by others.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: This is more of the change of Star Saber in the IDW comics continuity. In the anime, he's a noble hero facing against Deathsaurus and his men and a Papa Wolf involving his adopted son Jan. In the IDW comics continuity, he's a religious extremist who crushes enemies in the name of Primus (the writer having used Star Saber as a villain while writing as part of a Transformers fanfiction group). Unlike Ginrai, whose appearance in Western comics also had his personality changed (being Crazy-Prepared and Properly Paranoid, but still heroic), Star Saber's IDW characterization is questioned by fans of the anime and toys as it's felt his character is Ruined Forever.
    • The fact that when Star Saber's Masterpiece toy was released in Australia, his bio was based on the insane IDW version probably didn't help.
    • In his appearance in Transformers Earth Wars, he's back to his heroic self.
