The series (along with the later two shows) was created by Saburo Yatsude, who would later go on to create ''Anime/GoLion'' (best familiar to American viewers as the "Lion Force" half of {{Voltron}}). "Saburo Yatsude" is not a real person, but a pseudonym which refers to the collective staff at Toei ([[ToeiCompany the main office]], rather than the [[ToeiAnimation animation studio]]; the series was animated by Nippon {{Sunrise}} and produced by Toei Co. Ltd).

* FiveManBand: The first example (and most imited) in a robot series:
** TheLeader: Hyoma Aoi.
** TheLancer: Juzo Naniwa.
** TheBigGuy: Daisaku Nishikawa.
** TheSmartGuy: Kosuke Kita.
** TheChick: Chizuru Nanbara.



* FollowTheLeader: Being a SuperRobotGenre show, naturally it used ''Anime/MazingerZ'' as its template. However, later SuperRobotGenre shows that used the FiveManBand trope used ''Combattler-V'' as their template.



* MarthDebutedInSmashBros Alongside ''{{Anime/Raideen}}'', poor ''Combattler'' was involved in one of the most '''bizarre''' instances of the trope in the history of the entire ''medium''. Suffice it to say that Marvel Comics didn't watch the show at any point, and you sure won't find Hyouma and crew anywhere in "Shogun Warriors"...

''Chōdenji Robo Combattler V'' (''Chōdenji Robo Konbatorā Bui'') is the first part of the ''Anime/RobotRomanceTrilogy'' of Super Robot series created by "Saburo Yatsude" and directed by Tadao Nagahama (the next ones being ''Anime/VoltesV'' and ''Anime/{{Daimos}}''). The robot's name is a portmanteau of Combine, Combat and Battle, and the V is intended both as an abbreviation for "victory" and in reference to the five component machines that form the robot, as well as its five pilots. The V is proununced as the letter V, whereas in the follow-up series, ''VoltesV'', it is prounounced "5".

* YouFailBiologyForever: Lampshaded in episode 9. The main characters are studying a strange giant egg. A X ray scanner reveals a four-legged animal inside it. The next conversation follows:
-->'''Hyoma:''': Looks like a horse.\\
'''Juuzo:''' Idiot, that's a goat!\\
'''Chizuru:''' You're both idiots. Horses and goats don't hatch out of eggs!

* WhatDoesThisButtonDo: In episode 16, Kotaro -a little kid of [[TheHero Hyoma]]'s acquaintance- visited the [[HomeBase Nanbara Connection]]. When [[RobotBuddy Ropetto]] shows him the team's vehicles, Kotaro can't help to get in Hyoma's jet fighter, point at a random button and ask what it does. Ropetto tried to talk him out of touching it, but Kotaro pressed it anyway.
-->'''Kotaro:''' What does this button do?\\
'''Ropetto:''' That's the ignition button. Don't touch it.
