* LighterAndSofter: Both this and DarkerAndEdgier. Astro's angsty past is retconned away, but the series in general took on a much more serious tone than the two previous anime. While the outcome for Astro is maybe less tragic than the manga or previous versions, it's potentially even darker. [[spoiler: Instead of simply selling off Astro, Tenma actually effectively shuts down Astro after he expresses his horror at seeing old Ministry of Science robots being scrapped, and shows signs of rebellion]]

* HistoryRepeats: Tenma gets what he thinks he wants, but it ends up the same way every time [[spoiler: The original Tobio rebels and takes the car for the fateful drive that claims his life, then he shuts down Astro at the first sign of rebellion and independent thought, attempting to do the same when Astro regains his memory]]

* DragonInChief: Shadow was deliberately built to be this, shoring up Tenma's own shortcomings in robotics with his own incredible intelligence.

* ZeeRust: Some of the technology can now be considered this. In one episode Dr. O'Shay whips out a phone that looks for the most part like a normal phone with buttons from the early 2000's when this show was made, except for a small circular screen that can show live videos.

** Creating Pluto was this for Tenma. Either Astro losses or evolves and becomes stronger. He's perfectly happy either way. [[spoiler: [[TakeAThirdOption When Pluto instead]] has a HeelFaceTurn, Shadow reveals he has a stronger robot in the wing, Archeron, who has no emotions.]]

First in 1963. 193 episodes were created, although only 104 were exported and dubbed for viewing outside of Japan. It's historically significant, as the first full-length anime series to be broadcast in Japan, and the first to be distributed in the USA. Along with ''Anime/EighthMan'', ''{{Kimba the White Lion}}'', ''{{Anime/Gigantor}}'' and ''Anime/SpeedRacer'', it introduced anime to American audiences and paved the way for more sophisticated works on both sides of the Pacific.

* PuppyLove: In the final episode Astro falls for a robot girl. [[spoiler:She ends up dying]].









* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: There is a sharp contrast between the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlYAedB6haU English dub]] intro and the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJ2KcAF9sUo Japanese]] intro. The Japanese intro has a pop song and focuses on the cute and happier part of the anime. The English intro is an instrumental-only rock song and there's much more of an emphasis on action and robotics.



* CanonForeigner: Shadow, who was created solely for this series. Though he does make an appearance of sorts in Omega Factor.
** Sort of. He's loosely based on Dr. Abullah/Goji from the original ''World's Strongest Robot'' arc, but his backstory and motives are completely different.
