Anime / Dream Dimension Hunter Fandora

Go To

In a world of space travel and chainmail bikinis, bounty hunter Fandora and her shape-shifting assistant Que cruise through the Dream Dimension in search of prey and manage to save the world a few times as well.

Fandora is an OVA from 1985 created by Go Nagai.

This anime provides examples of:

  • Evil Overlord: Yog Sothoth when he rules over Lam while posing as Pope Gilsburg. His rules include kidnapping women for sacrifices/slavery, and carrying out harsh hunger taxes.
  • Giant S Pider: Geran has the ability to shape-shift into one, using this form to attack Fandora when they wrestle.
  • Hat of Power: Fandora's tiara, which holds the Jewel of Lupia.
  • Human Hammer-Throw: During their wrestling match, Geran subjects Fandora to one of these by grabbing her ankle and swinging her in circles. Fandora ends up on the ropes and bounces back... into Geran's kneecap.
  • Important Haircut: Fandora does this near the end.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifting: The light of Lupia turns Que back into his true form, a dragon.
  • No Ontological Inertia: When Gilsburg dies, the kingdom of Lem automatically reverts to its former beauty.
  • Subspace or Hyperspace: The Dimension Warp, which allows speedy space travel via an alternate dimension.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Que can turn into any animal he likes, and Pope Ginsburg can transform into a monstrous beast.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Princess Lemia while she's brainwashed by Gilsburg, aka Yog Sothoth.
