YMMV / Ultraman Mebius

Go To

  • Awesome Music: The score has a retro feel to it because of longtime composer Toru Fuyuki returning for some music.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: In episode 24, Ryu is talking about how GUYS has grown from a Ragtag Bunch of Misfits into something worthy of Earth's previous defense teams. The camera cuts away to Mirai with a waterfall of tears streaming from his eyes. It doesn't even fit under Rule of Funny, given how abrupt and random it was. Ryu doesn't even comment on it.

  • Continuity Lockout: The series relies a lot on the mythology created by the Showa series, so some amount of familiarity with the older Ultra shows is needed in order to get the most out of the show.
  • Complete Monster: Bogal/Bogar ("High-Dimensional Predator (King)") was a sadistic eating machine from another planet and the series's first Arc Villain. Before the events of the series, she killed and devoured everyone on planet A(a)rb, while also beating Ultraman Hikari to a pulp, leading him to become the vengeful Hunter Knight Tsurugi. After coming to Earth, she calls various other kaiju to the planet to kill and eat them as well. The collateral damage involved means nothing to her, nor do the screams of the kaiju she eats alive. When Ultraman Mebius tries to stop her, she simply beats him aside and nearly eats him alive as well, multiple times, at one point dragging it out just to be cruel. Tsurugi tries to confront her more than once, only to be beaten back and nearly killed as well. Eventually we find out that, by storing up power through the monsters she's eating, she's transformed into the more-powerful Bogalmons/Bogarmons. Should she be killed, she would set off an explosion large enough to wreck Tokyo and everything else for miles around. Uncaring of this, she set off to murder Mebius one more time within GUYS HQ.

  • Ear Worm: Wandabadam dabadam dabadaba Wandabadam dabadam dabadaba...
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Zamsha, a badass alien samurai like no other. Sadly, he proved to be Too Cool to Live.
  • Ho Yay: Mirai and Ryu, to the point they are Mistaken for Gay in episode 24. After Mirai and Ryu (possessed by Yapool) have a stare off, George asks "Don't tell me you two are like that!" When Ryu replies, "Actually, we have a secret we can't tell anyone," George and the others go into shocked hysterics.
    • When Ryu has a day off, he says to the crew that he doesn't have any plans. They tease him saying that Mirai might ask him out on a date. Mirai kind of did... he did bring Ryu out on a picnic anyways.
  • Memetic Mutation: Mirai crying a waterfall of tears from his eyes is a common reaction image on the Internet.
  • Moe:
    • Parodied and Lampshaded, Teppei's rich family has a maid actually named "Moe-Moe-Chan".
    • Konomi certainly has her Moe aspects.
  • Moment of Awesome:
    • How about this, mostly for Ultraman Leo. Schooling the new guy, training him properly, cutting Alien Reflect's sword with his bare hand (and causing his nigh-unbreakable chest armor to flex with a kick), then executing a Leo Kick alongside Mebius with the result you'd expect.

    • Hinode Sayuri, the woman possessed by Alien Serpent, managing to retain her consciousness after being assimilated out of her desire to protect her kids. She then proceeds to take over him and use his hijacked body to beat down the rest of the invasion force by herself.
    • Near the end of the credits of Ultraman Mebius & Ultraman Brothers, we are treated to footage of a party celebrating Ultraman's 40th anniversary. The Showa Ultraman actors are clearly guests of honor but their costars are with them, with clips from their respective series. Near the end of the footage, the actors are presented with bouquets, some by Mirai's actor. Among the guests... all the Ultramen (not just the ones from the movie). Each Ultraman gets a bouquet as well and the actors and silver heroes gather for a photo, but not before a montage with a clip of every Ultraman. It gives warm feelings watching it. A little funny moment occurs because the male party guests are dressed in tuxes... including the Ultramen (although it can't be said they didn't look dapper).
  • The Scrappy: Mitsuhiko Hirukawa, given his "Every man for himself" jerkass personality, and his lack of hesitation to reveal Mebius' true identity.

How well does it match the trope?
