* BrokenBase: Between those who thinks Zyuranger on its own is awesome, links with ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' notwithstanding, and those who think that the series qualities decrease because they are going to see a lot of helpless little kids considered TheScrappy series-wide because [[ChildHater Bandora]] specifically targets them.

* OutOfFocus: For being the show's heroes, the core Zyurangers often got overshadowed by the kid(s) of the day, who often times were the ones to actually save the day ''THAN THE TITULAR HEROES''. It also resulted in making the core Zyurangers feel like cardboard cutouts and, unlike their American counterparts, were so often robbed of spotlight that we don't see any form of development or depth at all.



* StaticCharacter: The core Zyurangers walk the line between this, {{Flat Character}}s, {{Supporting Protagonist}}s, or all of the above: They get little real development, since their time is stolen by random kids of the day, and they barely get any meaningful character interactions with each other, let alone Burai (considering his condition). In fact, their only role in the story is to bail out distressed kids and do the fighting (ie. beating up the Bandora Gang) for them. Comparing them and their American counterparts side-by-side, it's clear that though both sets are cardboard cutouts, the teens with attitude are at least made of thicker cardboard compared to the legendary warriors.



%%* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Several actually.



* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Zyuranger is often considered LighterAndSofter than Jetman's drama-ladden story. Of course that's without taking consideration of some REALLY creepy stuffs Bandora go through in order to terrorize the children that she hates. Which up and up including snatching them outta nowhere as long as there's a reflection, [[AndIMustScream putting them in a suspended state inside a pillar with their faces visible, conscious all the time]], as they're to be sacrificed with the giant laughing head of a demon known as ''Dai Satan''. [[NightmareFuel Uh... yikes?]]

** As mentioned below, fans attempted a letter writing campaign to [[spoiler:bring Burai back]], which didn't work. The same would happen to his ''Power Rangers'' counterpart Tommy, with more successful results.

* StaticCharacter: The core Zyurangers walk the line between this, FlatCharacter, {{Supporting Protagonist}}s, or all of the above: They get little real development, since their time is stolen by random kids of the day, and they barely get any meaningful character interactions with each other, let alone Burai (considering his condition). In fact, their only role in the story is to bail out distressed kids and do the fighting (ie. beating up the Bandora Gang) for them. Comparing them and their American counterparts side-by-side, it's clear that though both sets are cardboard cutouts, the teens with attitude are at least made of thicker cardboard compared to the legendary warriors.

Added DiffLines:

* AssPull: Bandora's backstory, tragic as it is, comes SO LATE in the narrative, during the final episodes, that it comes across too late to have any proper impact and would make her less sympathetic than was probably intended.

Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedHero: Daizyujin/the Guardian Beasts often come across as JerkassGods for how often they tend to dick around the Zyurangers for the most arbitrary of reasons being portrayed as a test for them. It's most obviously seen when it involves Burai, whether it's him blasting Geki for questioning his order to kill Burai and then taking away their powers when they later wish to try help him stay alive, and then outright lying to them about the way that they were told could save his life, which led to more damage than could have been avoided. At times, Daizyujin is LawfulNeutral, with his dicking the heroes around making him border on LawfulEvil (contrasting Dai-Satan's NeutralEvil)


Added DiffLines:

* OutOfFocus: For being the show's heroes, the core Zyurangers often got overshadowed by the kid(s) of the day, who often times were the ones to actually save the day ''THAN THE TITULAR HEROES''. It also resulted in making the core Zyurangers feel like cardboard cutouts and, unlike their American counterparts, were so often robbed of spotlight that we don't see any form of development or depth at all.


* HypeBacklash: As time went on more people started coming out to reveal they don't actually like the series, while it is still looked at favorably it isn't looked as good as it used to be.


* BadassDecay: Averted with Burai. Despite being benched until the last minute in fights, he still manages to be awesome.


* PlotTumor: Burai's subplot ended up taking a lot of screentime, particularly towards the end. Since we're talking about [[EnsembleDarkhorse Burai]], [[TropesAreTools no one's complaining]].


* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Americans love Zyuranger]]: See SoOkayItsAverage below. Despite being considered as such in Japan, it has a cult following in America, due to being the series that helped spawned ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', giving ''Zyuranger'' [[FirstInstallmentWins pseudo-First Installment Wins]] status. It's no accident that the American DVD releases by Shout Factory started with ''Zyuranger''.
