YMMV / The Little Panda Fighter

Go To

  • Accidental Nightmare Fuel: Polaris's insane laughter is both this and a funny moment (in a very Narm-ish way).
  • Angst? What Angst?: Pancada is completely happy about the fact that Polaris bet against him in the final fight.
  • Bile Fascination: As it's known as one of the worst films of one of the worst animation studios in the world, many who see it just want to see how bad it can get.
  • Ham and Cheese: J. David Brimmer (aka Odion) is CLEARLY having fun playing Polaris.

  • Magnificent Bastard: Polaris is a retired fighter and owner of the Bear Bar Box boxing club. Fed up with business doing poorly due to reigning champ Teddy Thunder always winning, and being unable to fight himself without losing his club, Polaris challenges Teddy while disguised, giving the crowd a good fight and beating him without anyone being the wiser. After he's mistaken for Pancada due to a laundry incident shrinking his black bodysuit, Polaris lets him in on his scheme to fight in secret; content with his employee taking the glory. When a guilty Pancada threatens to expose Polaris if he doesn't let him fight Teddy for real, he agrees to train him. After Pancada loses, Polaris reveals that he knew he'd wouldn't win and bet all of his money on Teddy, knowing that everyone else would bet on Pancada; only training and encouraging him to ensure he wouldn't chicken out. By the time he's found out, Polaris had already skipped town with all of his winnings to retire, giving Pancada the club for him to turn into a dance studio.
  • Padding:
    • There is a shot of Pancada very slowly walking over to his boss' desk used twice.
    • It takes over 20 seconds for Pancada to cross a small bridge.
  • Special Effect Failure: Pretty much the whole thing. Special mention goes to the dancing scenes, which required fluid animation that this movie does not have.
