An OVA titled ''Brave Command Dagwon: The Boy With Crystal Eyes'' was released shortly after the conclusion of the main series. Taking place an indeterminate but relatively short amount of time after the original anime, the team's return to peaceful life is interrupted by a strange young boy named Kenta, who for some reason can't seem to grasp basic concepts and is being chased by MenInBlack. When Rai unexpectedly returns as the leader of these men, with his own take on the situation, the rest of the team must come to the right conclusion fast before the world is once again put in jeopardy.

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Played straight in the anime, of course, but in the OVA, it initially seems subverted after TheReveal, [[spoiler: since Deandozol was only mimicking a human and had trouble speaking language, suggesting it was struggling to learn it. It gets played straight like the rest in the end, though, since it speaks perfect human language in its final form.]]



* ChickMagnet: When Rai arrives on Earth to blend in as a normal student, the female students immediately start going after him to the point it starts to terrify him. And then Maria forces him to reveal he's a textbook psychic to the public.



* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:En completely shatters as Super Fire Dagwon in order to purge Genocide from Fire Dagwon's systems, with the total breakdown of both mechs killing it outright. Rai believes En to be KilledOffForReal after finding one of the worn-down SpacePolice badges, but everyone else starts searching and breaking down when they can't find him. Of course, En is ''not'' dead; he ejected from Super Fire Dagwon as [=DagFire=] and collapsed back onto Earth, and so he returns, beaten, to the place he promised Maria to return his debt at.]]



* {{Doppelganger}}: [[spoiler: Kenta's appearance is a PaletteSwap of En from when he was a child after Deandozol struck him eight years before the events of the anime.]]



* {{Foil}}: Rai is the [[AloofAlly unassuming and unaware]] ChickMagnet to Shin's CasanovaWannabe disposition.



* HonorBeforeReason: [[spoiler: Rai doesn't activate the superweapon to kill Deandozol because the rest of the team is still observing it. Fortunately, this is for the better, given what happens next.]]



* IFellForHours: [[spoiler: Even though En ejected from Super Fire Dagwon while leaving Genocide to crumble to death, they ejected at the stratosphere, meaning that he still took one hell of a fall, and would explain why he's injured in the ending despite having no visible injuries beforehand.]]



* LogicalWeakness: [[spoiler: Being a possession-based entity, Genocide is killed when his struggle with En begins to shatter Fire Dagwon, the mech he possessed, as the latter ejects from Power Dagwon unscathed.]]



* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: [[spoiler: One of the reasons the last episode hits hard. Kai starts crying for once despite having hated En the whole time, Yoku starts to destroy his work, Shin and Geki are visibly deflated, and Maria starts to forget about the fact that En's late to the meeting he promised, even in jest. Rai is pessimistic from the start, after he finds the worn down SpacePolice badge from Fire Dagwon's chassis. Ryu is the only person not affected by this (whether or not the scene where he asks his sister if she dreamed of En coming back counts is up for debate.)]]



* PsychoRangers: The team encounters a DefectorFromDecadence named Deathcop, who is essentially an evil generic Dagwon that also has a mech to fuse with like the rest of them.



** [[spoiler: This is what causes Deandozol to spare Earth and assimilate into the human race in the OVA; it's far too grateful for meeting young En and his dog Kenta in order to explore humanity.]]



* SpoilerOpening: Combined with BaitAndSwitchCredits: the opening prominently features Super Fire Dagwon from episode 31 onward, despite Super Fire Dagwon being another ten episodes away and only appearing three times in the whole show.

Rai and Thunder Dagwon are also shown in the opening four episodes before his official appearance.


Added DiffLines:

* ThemeMusicPowerUp: All of the characters have their own themes for each individual combination. [[spoiler: Genocide also gets one when he possesses Fire Jumbo, gaining a muted version of the Kaen Gattai theme.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WouldHurtAChild: Rai is not afraid to aim his upgraded guns at Kenta to kill him in the OVA. [[spoiler: Subverted when it's revealed it's Deandozol using a discolored version of young En's appearance to mimic Earth's lifeforms.]]

* LawOfInverseRecoil: Subverted - Fire Dagwon and Power Dagwon can fire the Mugenhou just fine (from the right hip and left shoulder while using his shovel as a ground, respectively), but when Super Liner Dagwon and Shadow Dagwon try it (together!), they get blown back onto their asses a considerable distance away.

Power Dagwon's SuperStrength is shown off by being able to fire the Mugenhou with no recoil at all once it plants its shovel in the ground behind it.



* MidseasonUpgrade: Super Liner Dagwon and Power Dagwon. Super Fire Dagwon actually averts the typical Brave trend where it would be one of these by instead being an EleventhHourSuperpower, with En continuing to use Power Dagwon as his primary form even after getting it.



* {{Robeast}}: Occasionally, but most of the invaders are intelligent.

* TooAwesomeToUse: Super Fire Dagwon's extremely rare appearances might be related to the fact that it's ''ridiculously'' overpowered.

Rather unfortunately overshadowed by ''{{GaoGaiGar}}'', the next Brave Series show.

* OddballInTheSeries: Dagwon, from top to bottom, does not resemble most other entries in the Anime/BraveSeries and suffered in ratings as a result. That said, its successor, GaoGaiGar, actually took some of the better ideas and refined them into the Crowner we know it to be.

* {{Reconstruction}}: This show came out a bit before [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]] ended, and while it liberally borrows visuals (quite a few of the aliens could pass as Angels) and some other ideas, it wholeheartedly rejects the self-destructive nature of that show. ''Especially'' in the endgame. If you look closely, you can even see some of the elements that made it over to GaoGaiGar.

* {{Engrish}}: Kai's "Don't Say! Four or Five!". And "We Are Dagwon", the english version of the theme song - the lyrics are okay, but it's sometimes hard to understand what they are.
