Added DiffLines:

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Mic Sounders. He's a silly character who speaks in GratuitousEnglish and is the most childish member of the cast. He looks like a giant wind-up toy, or possibly a walking vending machine, and doesn't seem to have any attacks. [[spoiler:And he doesn't...in his Cosmo Robo mode, at least. When he System Changes to Boom Robo mode, he gains access to ThePowerOfRock, with different music discs giving him different powers. Disc M interferes with electronics using microwave beams, while Disc P boosts the power output and efficiency of nearby GS-ride systems. [[UpToEleven And then there's Disc X]]. Disc X allows Mic to access his Solitary Wave system, which basically causes destructive resonance on a molecular level. It can be 'tuned' to only destroy a specific type of matter, such as Zonder Metals, but otherwise it simply destroys ''everything''. Basically, the disc system and Cosmo Robo only exist as safety interlocks that prevent the Solitary Wave Risers from being activated without several confirmations, lest Mic cause an EarthShatteringKaboom.]]

Thus goes the first episode of ''[=GaoGaiGar=]'', an anime made in the aftermath of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' that continued the [[HotBlood hot-blooded]] spirit of its venerable "Braves" franchise, [[{{Reconstruction}} gleefully revisiting the old school]] [[SuperRobotGenre super robot]] style of [[RocketPunch brute-force attacks]] [[CallingYourAttacks while declaring each one by name,]] and [[RuleOfCool action driven by a pretty good plot.]] The first 26 episodes are MonsterOfTheWeek action - Someone gets turned into a Zonder, they attack the city, GGG launches to fight it. It doesn't get old, though; new technologies and characters get introduced at a constant rate to keep it interesting and you get the occasional [[{{Foreshadowing}} glimpse of what's to come]]. Then, after the half-way point [[WhamEpisode all hell breaks loose]] and GGG have to try twice as hard as they were just to stay alive. Courage, friendship and sacrifice, it's everything a growing boy needs. Overall a very solid series. Lots of fun, made for kids without being overtly "kiddy" and with some damn fine robot fights. The show was later dubbed by Media Busters, however only half of the episodes were dubbed in English and the other episodes were released subbed on Dvd.

* EyeScream: Guy finishes off Palparepa ''by ripping the Loud G-Stone out of his right eye socket''.
** [[spoiler: Actually, what happened was Guy slammed his G-Stone into Palparepa's Loud G-Stone, and MinovskyPhysics did the rest.]]

* ForeignFanservice, {{Fanservice}}, MsFanservice (Swan White, the American member of GGG, starts to pick up a fanservice role around the same time the show matures. FINAL also has a good deal more fanservice than the regular series, with several of the female characters wearing skimpy clothing or being depicted nude-with-[[GodivaHair hair covering the good bits]] at various points. Not to mention the fact that one of the major antagonists of FINAL is ''very'' explicitly a dominatrix... It also had another bit of [[EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench French]] ForeignFanservice in form of the (literally) hot Renais.
** And said dominatrix's treatment of Renais is high grade FetishFuel.

It proved so popular with the PeripheryDemographic that it received a DarkerAndEdgier [[{{OriginalVideoAnimation}} OVA]] called ''Yuusha-Oh'' ''Anime/GaoGaiGarFINAL'', which elevated the sheer [[SerialEscalation Over-The-Top-itude]] several times over, as well as providing a lot more explicit (and occasionally very jarring) {{Fanservice}}. ''FINAL'' would later be edited into ''Yuusha-Oh [=GaoGaiGar=] FINAL Grand Glorious Gathering'', a thirteen-episode television version of ''FINAL'' made to strengthen the series' ties to sister-show ''{{Anime/Betterman}}'' and promote the upcoming next installment of the Brave Corps series, which would have been a sequel to ''FINAL''. Unfortunately by this time, interest in the franchise had waned significantly, and the sequel never came to pass. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMPTW7MGVqE Another sequel,]] codenamed ''Project Z'', was also ultimately dropped due to said lack of interest. A petition to persuade Sunrise to rethink this decision can be found [[http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/gaogaigarprojectz here]]. During the summer of 2011, San Three created a pachinko machine called [=GaoGaiGar=] CR based on the original series. And in September 2016, Creator/{{Sunrise}} announced a light novel publising branch called "Yatate Bunko", with one of the projects announced alongside it being ''"King of Braves: [=GaoGaiGar=] vs. Anime/{{Betterman}}"''.

* {{Badass}}: Everyone in the GGG who gets a name qualifies. One of the scientists shown in FINAL. He didn't get to do much in the OVA series, but during the interim manga, he's present when [=BioNet=] stages an attack on one of their research vessels. He and Mikoto make a run for the command bridge, but are attacked en route by [=BioNet=]'s freaky monster mooks. The thing charges them and, without even flinching, the scientist ''does a judo hip toss on it, slamming it into a bulkhead.'' He then urges Mikoto to get to the bridge while he, an [[BadassNormal unmodified human]], deals with the monster. Later on, he's shown to have done so ''and come out without a scratch on him.''



* [[TookALevelInBadass Took About 50 Levels In Badass]]: ''Mamoru'' of all people. At the start of the series this '''''grade-school kid''''' only has the power to purify Zonder Cores. By the end, he's not only strong enough to purify Primeval Cores as well, but take on Primevals ''directly'', and was putting up a good fight against Zonuda with Galeon's help. And then, of course, he tops it all off in ''FINAL'' by taking on [[spoiler: Pe la Cain]] and handing him his ass on a platter. [[spoiler: Considering the [=PasQ=]-Machine's replicants are of equal strength, I guess the fact that he's capable of piloting the titular mecha counts too. Too bad his replicant was turned evil and thus had to be squashed by Guy. Oh well!]]
