Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search

  • Awesome Music: The ending theme
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Shiro/Battle Kenya, so much that Kenji Ohba went on to play The Lancer on Denziman, then was given his own show.
  • I Am Not Shazam: Despite the later Kousoku Sentai Turboranger retrospective introducing them as such, and the anniversary series Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger refering to them by that name on several occasions, the team is never actually referred to as "Battle Fever J" on the show. The team's name in the show is Battle Fever-tai ("Team Battle Fever"), not "Battle Fever J".
  • Idiot Plot: A good chunk of #22 involves the guys trying—and failing—to infiltrate an women's only institution in order to investigate strange events. The fact that they happen to have a female member in Diane doesn't occur to them.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Inverted in the case of Miss America, since Diane was such an underdeveloped character.
  • Unfortunate Implications: The fact that Diane barely goes outside and is pretty much useless could be interpreted as either misogynistic, racist, or both.
