YMMV / Kyukyu Sentai GoGoV

Go To

  • Awesome Music: The soundtrack as a whole holds a handful of nice tracks for those who're into Toku music.
    • The Opening and its instrumental variants. Maybe, the most heroic sounding Sentai theme ever made.
      • The Full-English version of the opening. And yes, it's part of the official soundtrack.
    • The Heroic Resolve theme, "Yuuki wo Nakuseba".
    • VictoryRobo and GrandLiner's themes.
      • GrandLiner also has an slightly different instrumental version of its theme song. Pretty catchy too.
    • The "Victory March" that kicks in with Victory Prominence: "Ken yo, hikari wo yobe!". When it starts playing, you automatically know someone's boned.

    • VictoryMars' theme, which, despite its alternate mode merely being a crawler for extraterrestrial bodies, sounds like one hell of an epic battle in space!
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Any time the Golem Card appears after its initial arc.
  • Bizarro Episode: Episode 45, which has Matoi getting sucked into his siblings' (and Kyoko's) dreams and multiple image songs being used throughout the episode).
  • Complete Monster: Grand Witch Grandiene is the Evil Matriarch of the Saima Family and the ultimate form of all the minus energy in the universe. After Dark King Salamandes's death, Grandiene takes matters into her own hands and used the evil energies gathered by him and his siblings to complete her revival. Then, in a cruel and cold act, Grandiene sends her own son Beast Baron Cobolda to his death to accomplish her goals; revealing to Dark King Zylpheeza that she never really cared for the well-being of her children. After the destruction of her physical body, she possesses Zylpheeza and revives Salamandes as a soulless Destruction God in a final attempt to wipe out humanity. As fitting of the family theme in GoGoFive, Grandiene stands for everything the Tatsumi family bond isn't. Furthermore, not only are they willing to threaten innocent people, including babies to get what they want, they're even willing to sacrifice each other in order to defeat the GoGoV and conquer Earth. In other words, they have absolutely no respect for any living beings; not even themselves.

  • Ear Worm: The opening song is made of these.
    Please, hang in there! (GoFive!)
    Please, stay alive! (GoFive!)
    They’ll definitely make it there! No matter what the cost!
    Extreme disaster
    Extreme chaos
    Like the five gusts of wind, they'll blow past it all!
    Saving a single life is...
    Saving the endless future! (Wow!)
    Rescue Soldiers! Faster than before!
    In this dangerous battle, press on through! (GoGoFive!)
    Rescue Soldiers! Stronger than before!
    Now is the time to sharpen your shining courage!
    Please hurry, Kyukyu Sentai GoGoFive!
  • Fan Nickname:
    • Venus: for Denus whose name came from Undine + Venus, and is similar in appearance to Venus. It even makes sense as Venus is a goddess that was born from waves.
    • "Colonel Sanders" for Dr. Mondo Tatsumi, due to his uncanny resemblance to said Colonel.

  • Funny Moments: In the first episode, Matoi wakes up to the sight of Mint. His reaction? "That's a really big alarm clock."
  • Heartwarming in Hindsight: During the GoGoFive 18-year reunion episode on an episode of Bakuhou the Friday, Kenji Shibata (Daimon's actor) revealed that the right side of his body got busted really bad as a result of an inoperable brain tumor. Shibata also said that he saw the main cast as if they were his siblings and doesn't want to let them see him suffering and being scared of dying. In response, Ryuichiro Nishioka (Matoi) told him that they're having a reunion in less than 20 years because "he's not there with them" and "it won't be the GoGoFive without one of them".
  • Jerkass Woobie: Zylpheeza is a villainous example. He may a horrible demon, but at the same time he watches his younger sister give her life to revive him, against his will, and has to watch his younger brother die after being forced shoot him by his own mother.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The Psyma in general are incredibly creepy. Grandienne is a great example of Abusive Parents. Zylpheeza looks like Satan. Salamandes is psychotic as hell. The Monsters of the Week are also terrible, usually treating humans like crap, chanelling Adult Fear sometimes.
  • Older Than They Think: Believe it or not, this was the first series to have a movie-exclusive extra hero - although it wasn't until Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger that the idea caught onnote .
  • The Woobie: Erika, a little girl who appeared in episode 17. She liked Matoi and did a lot for him, from washing his clothes to making dinner for the whole family. Matoi had to be harsh with her so as not to be endangered, which is kind of understandable. Her reaction, however, was totally heartbreaking.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: It's not even that complicated of an effect, but seeing the Grandliner tower over a couple of Saimas is... satisfying.
  • Woolseyism: The name of the villains, the Psyma, is literally a combination of "disaster" and "demon." The Imagination Station subs adapt it as "Catastrophiend."
