* CantCatchUp: Subverted; the Godannar may be the most powerful robot on the good guys' side, but it can't do ''everything''. Its component units, Dannar and Neo Okusaer, are more than capable of winning the day without combining, and the other robots in the series can more than hold their own as well (even Lou's teeny-tiny "Cosmo Diver"). Also, some units specialize in environments in which the Godannar's actually useless, like underwater/in space (Cosmo Diver) and aerial fighting ("Dragliner").

** Tatsuya Aoi, Anna's dad, is voiced by Hiroya Ishimaru, the voice actor for Kouji Kabuto in Anime/MazingerZ. And the first thing he does when he reveals his identity is order the Z MISSILE to be fired. Ye-he-hea! Not to mention that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qPLDGJJzLw&feature=player_detailpage#t=465s this is how he looks like in his youth]].

In the past, Earth was [[AlienInvasion under attack from an alien force]] called the "Mimetic Beasts". They carry the [[TheVirus Insania Virus]], which usually targets males and mutates them into monstrosities. TheHero, Goh Saruwatari, along with his partner Milla Ackerman, pilots the HumongousMecha pair [[MeaningfulName Dannar and Neo Okusaer]] and led the final battle against the HiveQueen of the Mimetic Beasts, driving it away at the cost of Milla's life, but in the same time, Goh saved a young girl named Anna Aoi, the daughter of his boss. Attempting to get over Milla's death (whom he actually loved), Goh decided to move on and...proposed to Anna, despite the age gap (Anna's still a high school girl, Goh is...well, someone that would be of a tenured salaryman).

* AnAxeToGrind: The Goddiner, China's super robot, has a pair of huge tonfas that can be turned into even bigger axes... and into a pair of kusarigama... and can be joined together to form [[ThisIsADrill a drill]]. Yes, Goddiner RULES. [[DemotedToExtra And yet it never makes it to]] ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars''.

** ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsK'' takes it a step further, by making it a something of an expy of [[Anime/GunXSword Van]], who just happens to be in the same game. It even has the ring jingling...

* VideoGame/SuperRobotWars: Makes a less-than-appreciated debut in Scramble Commander 2, but a "proper" one in [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsK K]]. Although none of the non-Japanese mecha and characters make it in so it still hasn't gotten a complete showing. [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsL L]] has some late mechs cameo, but the playable mechs remains the same.

* AffectionateParody: ''Godannar'' is a love letter to old-school SuperRobot shows and to the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' tokusatsu, and it's an absolute treat to any fan of either genre. The Super Robot side is well repented: from it's catchy theme songs (the first one sung by AkiraKushida, the second one's sung by [[JAMProject Ichiro Mizuki]] and Creator/MitsukoHorie) to its wholehearted embrace of cliches (CallingYourAttacks, [[TransformingMecha robots "hulking out" into more powerful forms]], CombiningMecha) and similar; the Ultra side has its monster designs and even behaviors call back to the old school Toku. That the monsters all explode when hit with the heroes' finisher just adds to the feel. As a result, this show is just one huge ball of awesome.

** Musical homage to a tune from ''Series/SpaceSheriffGavan'' is used during several battle sequences. Specifically, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtmCGiJmmbc&feature=related Laser Blade theme]], which has gotten a lot of mileage (also getting an homage in ''DanGaiOh'').
