Mazinkaiser originally appeared in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars4 Super Robot Wars F Final]]'', when developer Banpresto asked ''Mazinger'' creator GoNagai to design a new mecha for Kouji to use as a MidSeasonUpgrade. The idea was for Mazinger Z to be upgraded through exposure to [[Manga/GetterRobo Getter Rays]] into a new monstrous form, later redubbing it the Mazinkaiser. ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'', the next "major" installment of the franchise, revamped the origin of the robot into being the ''original'' Mazinger SuperPrototype that ended up being too difficult to control, necessitating its sealing away until Kouji finds and tames it (this version also conveniently fills out the long-standing plot gap of "what was the accident that nearly killed Kenzo and his wife?" in ''Mazinger'' mythology). The idea was such a hit with fans that Nagai quickly [[CanonImmigrant incorporated it into canon]] in anime and manga form, using the ''Alpha'' version as its origin story.

* AscendedExtra : The blonde twins Lori and Loru. Back in the original manga, they were nothing but [[RedShirt Red Shirts]]who last for 2 chapters. [[spoiler:They fill the same role in the movie, but in a more glorious manner.]]

* BarbieDollAnatomy: Subverted when Sayaka's bikini top is pulled off; brief scene with very prominent nipples. Same for when the three androids from episode 3 are destroyed.



** Let's face it, that was probably the main reason this episode was made. Especially when you consider that when it happens, they play it up like someone just found the Ark of the Covenant.



* FanDisservice: A ''naked Baron Ashura''?! MY EYES!! MY BEAUTIFUL EYES!!!!
** Fortunately for us, it doesn't show the squicky bits at all. In fact, it's [[RuleOfFunny hilarious]] in context.

Ashura naked scene. Fortunately for us, it doesn't show the squicky bits at all. In fact, it's [[RuleOfFunny hilarious]] in context.



* {{Fanservice}}: Sayaka and Lori and Roll in the BeachEpisode, especially with the topless scene of Sayaka. Let's face it, that was probably the main reason this episode was made. Especially when you consider that when it happens, they play it up like someone just found the Ark of the Covenant.



* {{Gainaxing}}: Lori and Roll do this plenty of times, as do the three androids.

* VideoGame/SuperRobotWars: Created for ''F Final'', but also appears in the ''Alpha'' series, ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGC Super Robot Wars GC/XO]]'',''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsW'' and ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsL''.
** While the ''Super Robot Wars'' series in general has a problem with damage numbers, its pretty notable that Mazinkaiser is possibly the biggest and long running offender of StatisticallySpeaking. Thanks to its SuperMode that increase attack, Not only it deals damage higher than GlassCannon like Manga/GetterRobo, it also tanks better. Not to mention the issue of having some of its weaker attack dealing higher damage than other mech's final attack most notably the sun-killing Goldion Crusher from ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'' being slightly weaker than Final Kaiser Blade.

* MythologyGag: KABUTO KOUJI DIES IN MAGMA! ... not.

to:

* MythologyGag: KABUTO One episode title is "KABUTO KOUJI DIES IN MAGMA! ... not.MAGMA!", which is just as [[NeverTrustATitle inaccurate]] as when it was an original series title.

During a massive attack by Mechanical Beasts created by MadScientist Dr. Hell, the Mazinger Z and GreatMazinger sortie to battle, but are overrun through sheer numbers. Kouji's Hover Pilder is ripped from the Mazinger Z and hurled from the battlefield, and the machine is captured by Dr. Hell, who turns it into a mechanical devil for his own purposes and sends it against the Photonic Research Institute. Outnumbered, [[GreatMazinger Tetsuya]] [[TheLancer Tsurugi]] heads to battle with a damaged Great Mazinger when a new, insanely powerful and more demonic looking Mazinger suddenly appears with Kouji at the helm.

The seven-episode OAV was followed up by the movie ''Mazinkaiser vs. [[GreatMazinger The Great General of Darkness]]'', a remake of the 1974 film ''Mazinger Z vs. The Great General of Darkness'', where the [[GreatMazinger Mycenae Empire]] invades while Kouji is vacationing in Paris, forcing him to fight his way back to Japan and take the Mazinkaiser into battle once more.
