* LighterAndSofter: Both Gatchaman Crowds and the "Main/Live-ActionAdaptation" are this, especially the former.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: Gatchaman Fighter is much darker in tone than its predecessors with much death and destruction, Ken nearly dying from the radiation exposure from the Hypershoot, and the possible deaths of the team.

* GiantEqualsInvincible: SubvertedTrope. Yes, Galactor's {{Robeast}} were HumongousMecha that easily whitstood any attack the army threw at them, and destroying them in return, but a FiveManBand of teenagers with a CoolAirship was all what was needed to take on them.
* GratuitousEnglish[=/=]SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: The live-action film used a ''lot'' of American and European extras and background characters in order to invoke an international feel. Of note is one scene where a (very) white security guard at a gala event instructs guests ("Put your hand there. Thank you, next." (motions towards scanner) "Please, alright. Put your hand there. Alright, next..." etc') on the use of an ID scanner. A negative result causes Ken to reply back to him in equally flawless English.

* TitleConfusion: Many viewers referred to ''Anime/BattleOfThePlanets'' as "G-Force", even before the version that was actually called ''G-Force'' came out (and causing further confusion).

** In Japan, there was some debate over if "Gatchaman" was the name of the Science Ninja Team, the individual members (rendered as "Gactchamen"), or one character specifically. Turns out Tatsunoko [[https://twitter.com/tatsunoko_pro/status/914418263735570433 intended it to be a]] ProtagonistTitle, with Ken's alternate title being Gatchaman.

** Another Achilles Heel turned out to be their uniforms. Each piece of their clothes - shirt, pants, and shoes - turn into their uniforms. Lose any part of it and you can't transform, as Jun finds out.

Lose any part of it and you can't transform, as Jun finds out. Galactor was able to reverse engineer Gatachaman's transformation technology from the shoe that Jun left behind.

* RadialAssKicking: It nearly happened on a daily basis, with the Spectra commanders sending a legion of {{Mook}}s to try to overwhelming the team with sheer numbers. Needless to say, it was not a very effective strategy.

The show revolves around five heroic teenagers in bird suits who use ninja type weapons. Each hero drives a special vehicle which combines with the God Phoenix mothership, which is then able to fire missiles and convert to the Kagaku Ninpo Hinotori ("Science Ninja Art: Firebird", or "Fiery Phoenix" in ''Battle of the Planets''). ''Gatchaman'' was, in fact, [[TropeMaker the very first place the concepts]] of FiveManBand ([[TheHero hero]], [[TheLancer cool guy]], [[TheChick token female]], [[KidAppealCharacter precocious kid]], [[TheBigGuy big guy with a hick accent]]), and CombiningMecha [[{{Sentai}} intersected]]. The heroes mostly waged battles against the MonsterOfTheWeek built by the evil Galactor crime syndicate / terrorist army, which was ultimately led by Sosai ("Leader") X, an alien supervillain who wanted to rule the Earth, and Berg Katse, a mutant who could shift genders at will.[[note]]Although, in the second dub, ''Anime/GForceGuardiansOfSpace'', Berg Katse, or rather "Galactor" (after the organization) is portrayed as the leader with Leader X, or rather "Computor" portrayed as being merely a consultant.[[/note]]
