These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger
Accidental Innuendo: When Virsun Joyro-fies the reservoir in episode 22, it really looks like he's taking a giant piss.
Luckiero tends to make rather suggestive sounds whenever someone else reaches into his stomach-pouch...which given that Luckiero himself seems to be made of cloth, could well be considered a bodily orifice.
Ass Pull: Practically Once an Episode from episode 6-12. Invariably, a team member would "conveniently" remember a Zyudenchi with a weird power that might help against the MOTW and whip it out with little to no in-show foreshadowing at all. Although this was probably to rush out the abilities of the Zyudenchi. That said, the team was shown to be learning the Zyudenchi powers and training with early on, even if they didn't yet spell out what all the powers were, so it's not completely out of nowhere.
Ending Aversion: Compared to the rest of the series, the final 3 or so episodes are incredibly rushed. Plot lines between Aigaron/Ian, Nobuharu/Candelira and Luckyuro and Utchy/Dogold are hastily wrapped up, the Cyan and Gray successors show up and fight transformed for all of 5 minutes, Killbolero and Aisurando are there only to die, and to top it all off, Amy is suddenlyin love with Daigo.
Utsusemimaru is quite popular as well. While being a Sixth Ranger helps, there's also the fact that he's a badass samurai and yet totally adorkable. Amy also has her fans for being incredibly badass herself to make up for being the only girl on the team.
Judging by the comments for Brave 22, Daigo/Yayoi is quickly getting support.
After episode 40, Nobuharu/ Candelilla became this.
And if you're a Yaoi Fangirl, chances are that you ship Ian/Souji. The amount of fanart out there is staggering.
Game Breaker: Not only is Debo Akkumoon's power REALLY effective (to the point of being able to use a pillow so comfy, it causes the target to instantaneously fall asleep, allowing him to then enter their dreams to attack them.), but he was created by Luckyuro, meaning that Akkumoon is the only Debo Monster thus far that does not feed off emotion.
Genius Bonus: At the start of Brave 31, Nobuharu recites a haiku he came up with to advertise a festival. Ucchi quietly asks "what could a haiku be?" This is because haiku started developing into its modern form in mid-16th century, and he was not around during this time (as Dogold took over his body just a few years before).
When Kyoryuger news first broke, the fact that the team sidearm served as the changer caused some mild surprise; and there was even a little early speculation among Western fans that Saban might change things when it comes time to adapt the series for Power Rangers and make something else the morpher because of violence concerns. A week or two later came the Sandy Hook tragedy where a gunman entered a school and shot up a class of six-year-olds, making gun control issues the major point of discussion for a while.
Go-Busters have gotten praise for its several references to Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. Well, making the Sentai series that premieres on MMPR's 20th anniversary a dinosaur-themed Sentai has got to count for something.
If this series gets adapted into Power Rangers, this will be the series that breaks Power Rangers' record of having a Yellow Ranger in every series.
Also, Kyoryu Blue seems to be older than his team mates, just like Blue Buster.
Green has a father who wants him to succeed him in his dojo. Sounds like Gao White.
Torin is a mentor figure that takes the form of a bipedal animal. Sounds more like a bird variation of Doggie Kruger.
It is uncertain if this is intentional or not, but the members of the Deboss Army appear to be based off of the protagonists from The Wizard of Oz. Luckyuro resembles the Scarecrow, Aigaron is the Tin Man, Dogold is like the Cowardly Lion, Candelila could be Dorothy (despite looking nothing like her), Chaos could be Glinda, Endorf is either Toto or a winged monkey, and lastly Master Deboss shares similarities with the wizard himself.
Just the name Dogold, when he's revealed to be the Sealed Good in a Can for Utsusemimaru/KyoryuGold.
In the movie we have Spinodaioh, a deep blue Samurai themed Mecha, and now we have Kamen Rider Gaim, an Samurai themed rider, with a deep blue base suit and the same "Moon" detail in the head.
Speaking of which, the Super Hero Time bumper where the actors have to name all the characters in both Kyoryuger and Kamen Rider Gaim leads to Daigo making up a 'Kamen Rider Mango' and 'Kamen Rider Pink', well before the reveal of Baron's Mango Arms AND Energy Rider Marika!
The Kyoryugers' color set up (with Green and Black with no Yellow) was foreshadowed by the Sentai formed by the two token Japanese characters from Monica's Gang's Spinoff Teens manga. Not just that, but said team's Pink Ranger was a waitress who wore a maid uniform for work, much like Amy.
Prior to the name of Deathryuger being announced, fans had taken to calling him "KyoryuNavy." Now, in 100 Years After, KyoryuNavy is the actual codename for Daigo and Amy's male descendant!
The rumours about Torin being Kyoryu Gold are a lot funnier after you find out who ends up being Kyoryu Silver.
#36 has Torin turn into a Kyoryuger to fight his Evil Knockoff, who then grows and is blasted away by every single Zyudenryu at once!Damn.
#39 is going to up the previous two with 'all ten Kyoryugers going to kick ass against Deathryuger.
#41 will have all ten Kyoryugers stated above piloting all the mechas which includes SpinDaioh. Hell yeah.
You will never be prepared for the HSQ of #47. It has the entire team getting together for the final battle. Meanwhile Torin is destroying hell.
Wait, there's more! We have both a new Kyoryu Cyan and Gray, Dr. Ulshade is returning and Gentle, Amy's butler is actually gonna kick ass against Zorima! This is going to ROCK.
What, you still aren't convinced? How about Nobuharu holding back a horde or Paramonsters? Ian and Souji dealing with an entire army, dual wielding guns and swords, respectively? Utchy and Dogold performing an Enemy Mine to take down Endolf before having a final duel?
Ho Yay: But of course. There's a particular moment where Ian is forced to repeat the same situation that resulted in his friend's death, and right after he saves Daigo, there's a slow-mo scene where he catches him... and they hug very dramatically... and yeah.
As if there wasn't enough Ho Yay between Ian and Souji in the main series itself, their characters in the TOEI HERO NEXT movie will be sharing a kiss scene.
In all honesty, this is probably due to Riku Sanjo's decision to single-handedly write the whole series note It should be noted this is his first time writing for a Super Sentai series. and he was also able to get some good Character Development for everyone else despite it. It should also be noted that all the heroes are ridiculously cool, which may help to balance out Daigo's position, at least to his fans.
Narm: Kyoryu Green first transforming by himself in Brave 3, doing the little dance when he's seemingly trying to be discreet.
The mooks are there. The MotW is challenging them. They overcame some hardships before this fight and they are ready to kick some ass. They use their revolvers like badass gunmen. And then, they started to dance to samba. Get ready to see this as a regular scene.
It gets especially bad in Brave 12, with the samba ruining the epicness of all six rangers transforming together at the same time and the samba music drowns out the Awesome Music, twice!
It helps that they don't always do the dance, as well.
Although it was a sad moment seeing King getting Amy to safety while he confronts Deboss on his own, it's hard to look at him pushing her out of the Frozen Castle and into the path of an oncoming dinosaur mecha that eats her without cracking up. Especially since one of the people piloting said mecha is her competition in the Love Triangle they have.
Nightmare Fuel: Aigaron developed a split personality. The other personality is even worse than regular Aigaron, gaining pitch black eyes, suffering from fits of anger, and attacking his comrades. Even worse, in #46, it's revealed that Aigaron was Dead All Along and his new power is a result of Lord Chaos resurrecting him to be his undead soldier.
#35 has the Deboss infecting the team's powers, warping and throwing off-tune their morph music. It's actually pretty disturbing to hear.
The Scrappy: Some fans had a lot of ire for Souji, for having zero Character Development in contrast to the rest of cast. Though this might be caused by the writers seemed to have no idea on what to do with his character, so he always gets the short end of the stick when it comes to characterization.
Daigo Kiryu, while he has fans, is also disliked for being a Marty Stu and getting more focus while the others are sidelined as his sidekicks.
The Woobie: Debo Batissier, arguably. His only job and desire was to make cake, but had to be taken down after something possessed him.
Poor Utsusemimaru. Let's count the ways: he was tricked by a Mook that was disguised as a kid, and his lord shielded him and died. Not to mention, the rest of his fellow friends were killed, and just as Torin was about to die he was so consumed with rage that Dogold possessed him for the past four centuries. Last but not least, he can't team up with the group due to a lot of his problems and the fact that Daigo is a splitting image of his own lord. Can you not blame him for needing a big hug right now?
Iron Woobie: Rika, Nobuharu's niece. She's only six years old, but she has come to terms with her father's death and knows that he isn't ever coming back.
Torin, as shown in the Fridge and Tear Jerker page, has gone through some horrible shit for 65 million years. The dinosaurs died off, Ramirez, Utsusemimaru, and Te Sai died and he hasn't had people to talk to him in between assembling the Kyoryugers.
Dogold. Yes, you read that right, Dogold, of all folks. He has a hard time trying to find a host body that will last long enough so that he himself can live, and everyone/everything pisses him off. Also easily counts as a Jerkass Woobie.
Unfortunate Implications: Chief producer Takahito Ohmori explained that since the Kyoryugers have to defeat dinosaurs to unlock their transformation they thought a mostly male team made sense, and since Yellow characters have been female in the past few shows they thought kids would consider a male Yellow "feminine".
