YMMV / Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger

Go To

  • Awesome Music:
    • Tetomu's song, giving a power boost to GaoLion and summoning the new mecha formation GaoCentaurus.
    • And the instrumental version of the GaoKing theme.
    • The opening just screams this. Especially in the Super Sentai Spirits 2006 concert, where Yukio Yamagata came out with no shirt and a fur coat to really sell it. Yes, he looks rather Badass in it.
    • How about Gao White's theme? It's by Mitsuko Horie, which helps a lot.

    • The afformentioned opening is this, sure, but how about the All Cast special version? (and yes, they included the Title Scream in the beginning too!)
  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Despite having a So Okay, It's Average reputation in almost every other country, this series is crazily popular in Vietnam, even as of the time of this writing (February 2019) is still widely remembered, referenced and most likely the first one Vietnamese people think of when talking about a Sentai series. This is because Gaoranger was the first Sentai series to be imported in Vietnam in around 2003 - 2004, and being one of the few things available on DVDs and VCDs for the kids to watch at that time, it spreaded very widely around the country.

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Shout! Factory's US DVD release of this series came out in December 2018, the 25th anniversary year of Power Rangers.
  • Ho Yay: Gao Red and Gao Yellow, and Gao Blue and Gao Black are goldmines for this.
  • Idiot Ball: Episode 25 has the five main rangers realize a Org has caused people to have their voices ruined, leaving them only being able to meow. They realize it's related to a particular karaoke booth, and then they quickly forget about searching for the monster, and decide to sing instead. The hidden karaoke machine org causes them to end up meowing, too. Leaving them unable to morph because they can't say "Gao access". They only survive because Silver wasn't there, he could still morph and has to beat the monster by himself.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Gao Blue's brutal death in episode 30 is paired with blood, disturbing laughter, and blood-curdling sound effects. If that scene didn't scare you off from playing Super Sentai in your backyard as a kid, you are truly jaded.

  • So Bad, It's Good: The Korean "Jungle Force" opening: "Power, Power, Pow!!!".
  • So Okay, It's Average: The general consensus of the show, given that it followed the well-regarded Mirai Sentai Timeranger; except for in Vietnam.
  • The Un-Twist: The Org Master is a figurehead for the Highness Duke Orgs. Considering most of Yabaiba and Tsuetsue's scenes involve them kissing up to the Highness Dukes and how little the Org Master is mentioned, this revelation is pretty obvious.
  • The Woobie:
  • Charcoal Grill Org. The ending of his episode implies that things will get better for him.
