* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: In this world of mechanical animal-people, kimonos are something like the skirt armor of a {{Gundam}}, obis sometimes have features such as [[MacrossMissileMassacre missile pods]] and {{jet|Pack}}packs built in, ribbons have radiator vents, shoes have hover jets, and skirts have thrusters [[WordOfGod "for some reason"]]. Heavy power tools are shown to be standard equipment for tailors.

** Speedy in his aerial combat unit resembles a {{Gundam}}, which isn't surprising considering that the show was part of an [[FollowTheLeader SD mecha fad that Gundam was at the forefront of.]] The show's character designer has even gone on record as saying that said aerial equipment was [[MerchandiseDriven designed by Bandai (who is also behind most Gundam merchandise) specifically for the purpose of selling toys.]]

* FollowTheLeader: Accidental one at that. The approach they used for the new scripts worked so well it went to influence later shows (released for the US market) like Manga/CrayonShinChan, Anime/LupinIII, and even [[TakeshisCastle MXC]]!

* SchizoTech: Little Tokyo has a curious mix of robots, high tech armor, and Shogun era Japan. The Japanese theme song even comments on it "Where the past meets the future!"

Items like abacus calculators and palanquin trains[[note]]the latter of which is stated in an interview to be one of the designs that really helped nail down the style of the show's setting during development[[/note]] are everyday items in this show's setting.

* ContinuityCavalcade: A shot early in the Japanese version of "Big Cheese's High Definition TV" shows that Speedy has decorated the wall next to his bunk bed with souvenirs from locales visited in previous episodes.

While the plots can be a bit formulaic, most of the show's appeal comes from the humor derived from both lame puns (main characters include Speedy Cerviche [''Yattarou''], Guido Anchovy [''Sukashii''], Polly Esther [''Pururun''], and "Big" Al Dente [''Wanko-no-Kami'']) and an astounding number of running gags. The show is notable for being perhaps the only heavily-edited, re-written, hacked-up anime dub that international fans ''actually prefer to the original'' (well, that, and the Latin America dub of ''Anime/DottoKoniChan''...and "Anime/GhostStories"). While the original show also took a light-hearted and goofy approach to its action show format, ''Samurai Pizza Cats'' is chock full of sly references, shameless puns, rapid-fire sardonic humor, [[NoFourthWall and a total refusal to acknowledge the outdated concept of the fourth wall]].

In 2013, Creator/DiscotekMedia released a DVD boxset of the original ''Kyattou Ninden Teyandee'' in its entirety (uncut and with subs, of course). Discotek also released a boxset of ''Samurai Pizza Cats'' in 2013, and followed that up a few years later with a one-disc Blu-ray release (made possible by all the episodes being in standard definition, natch).

* CoolSword[=/=]LegendaryWeapon: The [[NamedWeapon Youtou Masamasa/Magical Ginsu Sword]]. Normally sealed within its sheath, its great power only becomes unleashed when Speedy's righteous fury reaches its peak (although there are instances of it being unsealed by more [[WhatTheHellHero dubious motives]].) With it, Speedy is able to perform the [[SwordBeam Cat's Eye Slash]], an attack powerful enough to almost always [[FinishingMove finish off]] the [[MonsteroftheWeek Robot of the Week]] in a single blow.

'''''Samurai Pizza Cats''''' is the English dub of '''''Kyattou Ninden Teyandee''''' (キャッ党 忍伝 てやんでえ, "Cat Ninja Legend Teyandee" [[note]]The word "Teyandee" is an Edo period slang term that does not have an actual English translation. It is used by Yattarou/Speedy to show frustration or determination.[[/note]]). A long-standing rumor says licensor Creator/SabanEntertainment either didn't manage to receive transcripts of the original show's dialog, lost the transcripts, or [[BlindIdiotTranslation received horribly translated scripts]], so the writers had to make up stories and dialog from scratch. (The official story is less amusing: the original production company didn't send the scripts because they had given Saban ''carte blanche'' to turn the show into something a Western audience would find funny.) As a result, ''Samurai Pizza Cats'' became a tremendously well-written GagDub--which got so popular that the series is better known outside of Japan in its "Samurai Pizza Cats" form.
