* 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!"

* RecycledInSpace: Dialog changes and newly animated StockFootage had G-Force traveling through space. This was the major change to the plot; the terrorist Galactor become the alien invaders (aka "happiness boys") from Spectra.

* [[ShesAManInJapan She's A Herm In Japan]]: Zoltar, whose female half was dubbed as his "twin sister" Mala. Although in the original, Berg Katse and the female commander (while hinted to have some strong connection) were not revealed as the same entity until the end of the series, which this version hadn't gotten to. It is unknown how they would have attempted to explain it away, although one of the episodes that were adapted did feature Mark attempting to unmask Zoltar, and long blond hair briefly being shown. Tiny then jokes that Zoltar could be a woman, but nothing more is said on it.

The first American version of ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''. Heavily {{Macekre}}d by the infamous Sandy Frank Productions. You know, the guy who dubbed the ''{{Gamera}}'' movies, ''FugitiveAlien'', and ''TimeOfTheApes''.
