YMMV / Ninja Sentai Kakuranger

Go To

  • Awesome Music: The opening. It should be noted that it was one of the only Super Sentai theme songs to play in the respective tribute episode for Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.
  • Base-Breaking Character: Sandayuu Momochi, with some fans appreciating and others despising his mentorship skills.
  • Ear Worm: The opening: "''KakuRanger, ni~nja, ninja!"
    "Are wa nan-nan ja? Nanja, nanja?
    Nin-Ninja, ninja, ninja!
    KakuRanger, ninja, ninja!
    Ninja... Sentai... KakuRanger."
    • The ending qualifies too:
      "Doro-doro-dororon, shuri-shuri-shuriken
      Dance! Dance!
      Doro-doro-dororon, bishi-bishi-makibishi
      Dance! Dance!"

  • Evil Is Sexy: The Flower Kunoichi Gang.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The opening theme's line "Nin-Ninja, ninja, ninja!" has "Nin-Ninja" sounding an awful lot like "Ninninger".
  • Jerkass Woobie: The Monster of the Week in episode 3 genuinely liked Jiraiya and was sad when his new friend betrayed him. It gets even worse when we see him being treated like crap by everyone in the cab beforehand.
  • Mexicans Love Speedy Gonzales: Jiraiya's very well liked in America. No points for guessing why.
  • Paranoia Fuel: A lot of plots involve the rangers minding their own buisness, when they get tricked into traps set up by the Yokai. Not to mention a lot of Yokai hide themselves as normal humans, then reveal themselves after the team is stuck in a bad situation. You can't even trust normal looking humans...
  • Retroactive Recognition: Kane Kosugi has moved on to Hollywood after this, starting from the US-made Ultraman Powered (aka Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero) and appearing in movies like DOA: Dead or Alive (being Ryu Hayabusa no less) and battling Jet Li in War.
    • He was also a regular in the earlier runs of Ninja Warrior, which in Japan is named...Sasuke.

    • The head Santa of the Santa village is played by Ulf Otsuki. That's right, Professor Harley Hendrickson was an actual Santa, and the only one with a real beard!
  • The Woobie: You WILL feel sorry for Sekai in #7.
