* BruceWayneHeldHostage: A curious inversion happens during the second episode, TheOneWith the space shuttle. Machinegal tries to take an IdolSinger holding a concert at Cape Canaveral hostage, and dares Moldiver 1 to stop him. This is because he thinks Moldiver is in the audience specifically looking at Amagi, who looks [[HeroicBuild just like you'd think Moldiver 1 would look without a suit]]. Except he's not Moldiver 1 -- Hiroshi just modeled its physique after him because he wanted to look buff. So the villain, the poor guy's date, and the crowd want him to transform and try to save the hostage being launched into orbit, while he tries to convince everyone he's not the superhero, and Hiroshi realizes his [[TransformationTrinket Mol unit]] isn't working.

** NakedPeopleAreFunny: Mirai ''always'' ends up naked when Moldiver's power runs out. Hiroshi ends up naked (or worse) when he's unable to transform himself.



* HowDoIShotWeb: Mirai, especially in the "Captain Tokyo" form, since Hiroshi's user interface it too technical. Fortunately her design includes a simpler HUD and controls. Meanwhile, Hiroshi isn't able to use the different limb sizes of Mirai's Moldiver form easily.

''Metamorforce!''

In the middle of the 21st Century, gadgeteer Hiroshi Ozora has created the crowning achievement of his brief career: the Mol Unit -- a device which can enclose its user in a customizable pocket dimension, protecting him from all harm and allowing him to interact with the world in ways that would seem to defy physical laws -- in effect, to become ComicBook/{{Superman}}. Naturally, the lean and lanky Hiroshi sculpts the "event horizon" so that he looks like a muscular SuperHero when the device is activated. Its only drawbacks are that the Mol Unit can only operate for 666 seconds at a time, and its user must be nude or else the formation of the event horizon shreds his clothing.
