* CreditsRunningSequence

to:

* CreditsRunningSequenceCreditsRunningSequence: The end credits shows a succession of pictures of Astro in a flipbook-style animation sequence in which he starts walking, then running, then takes to the air and flies off the page.



* FalseReassurance

to:

* FalseReassuranceFalseReassurance: Heroic example; in order to avoid putting more stress on a young blind girl, Astro impersonates the destroyed robot True and states "I'm fine! I need to go rescue more people now!" This is all technically true -- since robots can't normally lie -- but it's not coming from the person she thinks it is.



* SoundtrackDissonance

to:

* SoundtrackDissonanceSoundtrackDissonance: The scene where Atlas first appears after his upgrade and massacres a squad of policemen is set to a rather upbeat, almost triumphant piece of classical music, probably to symbolize Atlas' view of himself as a hero, defending robotkind from the evils of humanity.

* ArmCannonArmCannon: Astro has one of these in this version instead of the traditional awkwardly-placed machine guns.



* CompositeCharacter: Atlas has elements of Cobalt, in that he's Astro's "brother" (though in a completely different way from the 80s version). The 2003 version of Franken is actually a composite of two completely different robots from the manga (a robot chauffeur from the 1960s Sankei Newspaper serial and a magnetic robot panhandler (ItMakesSenseInContext. Sort of) from a short tie-in manga for the 80s series) and has almost nothing to do with the original series' Franken, apart from becoming a flashpoint for anti-robot sentiment, which the Sankei version already did anyway.

* EvilutionaryBiologist

to:

* EvilutionaryBiologistEvilutionaryBiologist: Dr. Tenma, though for robots rather than humans. He built Astro with an AdaptiveAbility that would enable him to "evolve" into the world's most powerful robot, and keeps throwing dangerous situations at him to help the evolution along.



* InsaneTrollLogic: The final arc is kicked off when General Red's daughter is injured and put into a coma, and his robot butler Jake (whom Red forbids from spending time with her) is accused of assault. In reality, his daughter had tripped, and Jake was trying to help her. At court, Ochanomizu argues that Jake should be allowed to speak, as he is capable of free will and honesty. The court agrees with the Professor--- and decide that, if Jake can possess free will, then he must also possess the ability to lie, therefore the court cannot believe whatever he says. Ochanomizu is understandably upset by this.

* PowerGlowsPowerGlows: Astro, supposedly as a result of incorporating a kind of surge-protector that somehow converts excess electricity into photons.



* WheresTheKaboom

to:

* WheresTheKaboomWheresTheKaboom: Rainbow Parakeet has planted bombs all over the robot revolutionary Blue Knight's sanctuary and is about to press the button on the detonator, taunting Astro that the only way to stop him is to kill him and prove he's just as ruthless as Blue Knight. Astro opens fire on him and apparently misses. Cue maniacal laughter as the villain presses the button. Click, click, click. [[spoiler:Astro decided to Take a Third Option and was actually firing at the communications antenna that would relay the remote detonator's signal.]]
