* Anime/CombattlerV and VoltesV: The villains are similar to those of these series; Gekiga Jet, Marine, Tank = Combattler V's Battle Jet, Marine, Tank; Gekiganger V's name comes from Combattler V and upon its appearance performs the same pose; Gekigan Sword = Voltes V's Tenkuu Ken, which also gave its name to Gekiganger's hero. And "Let's Gekiga In" is a play on Voltes V's "Let's Volt In".

* FamousLastWords: Kind of subverted. Joe's first death had him saying "I'm sorry, Nanako-san... I couldn't take you to the ocean..." This, in the Nadesico-verse, became very iconic that [[spoiler:Gai Daigoji specifically said that when he was KilledOffForReal]]. But then subverted that in the sequel, Ken turns out NotQuiteDead.
* FinishingMove: '''GEKIGAN FLARE!''' And... '''DOUBLE GEKIGAN SPARK!''' Both of these include the "you have to get this just right or you'll blow up" speech before they're used.

* MazingerZ: Gekigan Fire, Gekigan Punch, Gekigan Beam = Breast Fire, Rocket Punch, Koshiryoku / Photo-Atomic Beam; "Gekiganger Dies In Flames!" = "Kouji Kabuto Dies In Lava!"; The movie has a similar plot to one of the Mazinger Z movies and begins with a similar opening sequence. The Gekigan Sword is also deployed from the side of the knee, just like the Mazinger Blades. Joe's BigDamnHeroes moment at the end of the series is similar to Tetsuya and Great Mazinger's introduction in the Mazinger Z movie as well.
