A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Violence & Scariness
Cartoonish, video game-style violence, mostly implied. Lots of battles between "good" and "bad" monsters.

This show is based on a video game and will likely encourage viewers to get and play the game.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the best that can be said about this series based on a video game is that it is a clone of Pokemon and Digimon: Digital Monsters. It ranges from grating to merely adequate. It's probably best to stick with the far superior originals, but if your child decides this series is right for them, it's best to know that there are a lot of battles, though cartoonish in nature, and that the show may encourage kids to get the video game.
Is It Any Good?
The animation is fairly attractive, although it lacks the directness and purity of Pokémon: I Choose You Pikachu and the overall polished design of Digimon. Each episode is interrupted by a brief rap interlude, in which the singer urges viewers to "unlock your disk," a reference to the means by which monsters trapped in disks are freed. The voice-acting by the English dubbing cast ranges from grating to merely adequate.
This series of four videos starts with Vol. 1: Let the Games Begin! and ends with Vol. 4: The Problem with Pixie.
Fast Friends and Fiendish Foes is probably the best of the lot, which isn't saying much. It still contains a good deal of uneven story telling.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
