YMMV / Ultraman Ginga

  • Complete Monster: Dark Lugiel is Ginga's Evil Counterpart and dark side. However, he is not Made of Evil: their split was ideological. Ginga wanted life to change and evolve naturally. Lugiel, however, wanted life to remain in stasis. In practice this meant killing and petrifying everyone in existence. To do so, Lugiel started a tremendous war between the heroes and villains of the Ultra Series, with himself leading the charge on the villainous side—only to turn on them and use his Dark Spark to turn everyone on both sides into Spark Dolls. Ultraman Taro was lucky enough to be able to speak, but everyone else was trapped as an immobile tiny statue until Lugiel decided to use their powers for something. Thanks to Ginga, Lugiel lost his own body, so he takes over a woman in Japan and uses his trapped minions to torment the students all over an elementary school. Lugiel had no restraints about throwing them aside when necessary—he kills Alien Icarus, reverting his body to a Spark Doll after Icarus fails and surrenders to the heroes. After Lugiel finally gains enough power to strike directly he mind rapes dozens of people, inflicting them with such despair they pass out while feeding on it to restore his own powers. When Ginga attempts to stop him, Lugiel goes for a sucker punch and then tortures a half-powered Ginga until he too loses consciousness. Lugiel is finally beaten in this series after Ginga gets his second wind, but comes back in the sequel. Dark Lugiel returns in Ginga S after his body was restored by Alien Chibull Exceller, and used as a weapon against Ginga and Victory. Lugiel then takes his body back, and kills Exceller via a shot to the back, before taking over his new enhanced Vict Lugiel form and preparing to use his powers to turn all of humanity into Spark Dolls. He gleefully gloats about it, claiming that he'd create the ultimate paradise...but it'd only be perfect for himself.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Ultraman Ginga's theme whenever he appears and fights. You know badassery will occur from the song.
  • Follow the Leader: Kamen Rider Decade and Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, of course.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Kemur-Man chasing Misuzu in the school at night.
  • Tear Jerker: Episode #3 has a lot of them.
