YMMV / VR Troopers

  • Ear Worm: Countdown, control, four, three, two, one!
  • Most Annoying Sound: Toxoid's shrill, screeching voice.
    • Jeb blowing raspberries could also get seriously grating at times.
    • Ryan's excessive karate cries (Hayaa!, and other battle cries) could also get annoying.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: J.B.'s Laser Lance. Being an Expy of a lightsaber, this was inevitable.
    • In season 2, Ryan gets a Laser Saber (which more blatantly resemble a lightsaber, being only a single blade). It makes the same sounds.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Brad Hawkins went on to be Mason's second stepdad Jim in Boyhood and also ventured into voice acting, most of them done for Funimation.
    • Sarah Brown joined General Hospital soon after VR Troopers and is better known these days as a successful soap opera actress, winning three Daytime Emmys during her six-year run on the show before moving onto other series. She has appeared on the cover of Soap Opera Digest 19 times.
  • The Scrappy: Percy.
  • Special Effect Failure:
    • Whenever Jeb sticks his tongue out, one can easily tell that the frame is frozen. Likewise whenever his eyes "pop" out in surprise.
    • In "The Dognapping", the skugs carrying Jeb's cage in Grimlord's palace are clearly in front of a green screen. Their lighting is completely different from the rest of the footage.
    • In "The Duplitron Dilemma", Percy being ejected from the car is shown with a flat image of him flying up and hitting the ground.
    • Battle Grid Mode speaks for itself.
  • Spiritual Adaptation: Compare the fights undertaken by the Lyoko-Warriors against XANA to the Troopers' battle against Grimlord. Hilariously, Saban composer Noam Kaniel composed and sang the theme song to Code Lyoko.
  • Tear Jerker: From the "Defending Dark Heart" arc: Ryan, having discovered that Dark Heart is actually his Brainwashed and Crazy dad, has a nightmare where he faces off against him alone. Said nightmare ends with Ryan breaking down and saying that he just can't fight his own dad.
