- Stupidest-Looking Monster
One Heck of a Chess Set
That would be the mechaninja with the white china Anubis head. I think he was a planter in a previous life.
- Worst Cover Copy
Just Like Star Wars, Kinda
The front cover proclaims, in huge letters, "Nonstop Special Effects Like Star Wars!" The back cover actually has a seal with the same note wrapped around it. Just to make sure, they mention it again on the spine. It is true: Like Star Wars, this movie has lots of special effects. Unlike Star Wars, they're not any good.
- Worst Special Effect
Anybody Read Japanese?
The weird neon glowing thing in action. It shoots a laser beam with Japanese characters written on it!
- Worst Picture
Happy Birthday, Boss!
Here the evil mechaninja plot their evil strategy. One explains that "this is precisely when the magnetic rays will arouse you" while the other asks "but, what of the Dark Overlord's needs?". Also note that the Cyber Ninja is intended to be a birthday present for the Dark Overlord.
