** Some of Jun's moments of panicking were cut, allowing the rechristened Princess to come off as a stronger character. Dialogue changes also made the character snarkier and ready to quip, although this at times created conflict that wasn't there in the original script [[note]]One episode changed a neutral dialogue exchange between Jun and Joe to Jason giving Princess a StayInTheKitchen type remark and Princess snapping back at him. Another episode had Princess sarcastically apologize to Mark, who criticized her for not paying attention.[[/note]].

*** The producers did not receive the episodes in the ''Gatchaman'' order, which had led to some interesting reinterpretations. We ended up with Mark's father said to be dead halfway through the series, and an entire episode revolved around his killer[[note]]This episode originally took place after Red Impulse's death, but was sent and translated as the 30th episode, leading to this oddity[[/note]]. Then suddenly, Cronus was revealed to be Mark's father, and they did Zark his survival. But yes, they could not get out of admitting that some people died.

* AnachronicOrder: The episodes were sent to Sandy Frank out of order, leading them to wind up produced in a much different order than what was used for ''Gatchaman'' (and what Frank had initially intended for production of this version). Although the episodes are arranged in the Gatchaman order on DVD, [[http://www.angelfire.com/ky/darthmaul/1.html the completed episodes wound up intended to be broadcasted and viewed in a completely different way]]. Watching them in the original Gatchaman order can create some confusion for new viewers, such as some episodes referring to events that have yet to happen, or 1-Rover-1 mysteriously coming and going. The suggested broadcast order by Sandy Frank fixes a few plotholes, yet also creates some of its own.

The first American version of ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''. Heavily {{Macekre}}d by the infamous Sandy Frank Productions. You know, the guy who dubbed the ''Franchise/{{Gamera}}'' movies, ''Film/FugitiveAlien'', and ''Film/TimeOfTheApes'' (and produced the 1984-85 Jim Lange-hosted version of the ''$100,000 Series/NameThatTune'') .

* CutAndPasteTranslation: This adaptation also falls under this trope, due to the severe amount of editing it took to transform Gatchaman into it. The producers were only given rough English versions of the scripts, so they just rewrote the plots and dialogue as they saw fit.
** Due to an oversight and the gap in production between translating ''Gatchaman'' episodes 1 and 2 (the latter was translated as the sixteenth for BOTP), the green Turtle King/Terrapin commander basically became two different men, with completely different voice actors.
** The anachronic order of translating the scripts lead to other holes in the plot (such as Mark's father's fate being one notable inconsistency) or oddities, such as there being four eerily similar blonde women affiliated with Spectra (Mala, S-9, Hannah, and "Ms. Ostric") that were stated to be different characters.
** New animation was produced by Gallerie for not only Zark's scenes, but shots where Mark and Princess would visit him, or where the G-Force team would be shown hanging out in their Ready Room. There would also be stock footage of outer space shown, with voice overs describing G-Force's trips to other planets (along with a shot of a planet).

* DarthVaderClone: Producer Sandy Frank obviously saw Berg Katse in ''Gatchaman'' and said something like "close enough!"
