** ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'': Like Xuanzang, Yakumo is constantly advocating sparing the lives of their enemies, and Mushra like Sun Wukong, loves to fight, wields a staff, and wears a golden headband. Kutal counterparts to Zhu Bajie, and Saago to Sha Wujing. Also, the way Hakuba transforms into a car to transport Yakumo is similar to the [[{{Saiyuki}} other show]].

She awakens 500 years in the future (300 in Japanese) and begins her {{Journey To The West}} in search for Shinzo/Center to save the humans and bring peace between them and the enterrans. Along the way, she befriends three enterrans who vow to protect her, Mushra, Saago, and Kutall. With a price on her head and a group of villains after her, they do [[DamselInDistress quite a lot of protecting]].

* AllYourPowersCombined: Rusephine, the last "king" the heroes face, absorbs the remains of the others, but is then in turn absorbed by [[spoiler:Mushrambo, the Dark King]].



* ArtisticLicenseGeology: 300 (500 in the English dub) years into the future, the statue of liberty is partially buried and surrounded by forest, with miles and miles of land around. At the same time, Egypt has become an ocean. Global warming apparently is only regional.

to:

* ArtisticLicenseGeology: ArtisticLicenseGeography: 300 (500 in the English dub) years into the future, the statue of liberty is partially buried and surrounded by forest, with miles and miles of land around. At the same time, Egypt has become an ocean. Global warming apparently is only regional.



* BlobMonster: Eilis is a liquid metal variation of this. He specifically traps the heroes by disguising himself as an ''entire amusement park'' in the second season.



* ChainedByFashion: Lanancuras has rock armor. Turns out that's the last bit of the asteroid that restrained his power, and once it's all knocked off of him in battle, he goes from powerful to god-like.



* TheFarmerAndTheViper: Yakumo saves an Enterran child. Once the villagers find out she's human, they try to burn her. Oh, and every single villain Yakumo forgives.

to:

* EyeBeams: Mushrambo was able to instantly incinerate a mook with black fire just by glancing in his direction. He was of course evil and brainwashed at the time but that didn't change how powerful he was so chances are he could still do it.
* TheFarmerAndTheViper: This happens quite a lot; when [[ActualPacifist Yakumo]] shows kindness towards a villain, you can bet they'll try to kill her anyway. Even regular Enterrans will betray her kindness in a second; Yakumo saves an Enterran child. Once child, but once the villagers find out she's human, they try to burn her. Oh, her.
* FusionDance: Enterrans have the ability to transform to become stronger
and every single villain Yakumo forgives.they turn into "En Cards" when they die. When an Enterran eats an En Card, or absorbs one through the chest, they transform into a composite of them self and the Enterran the card they ate/absorbed came from. The protagonist Mushra does this with the other two male heroes, Saago and Kutall, to become Mushrambo. [[spoiler:Subverted later on when it's revealed that they're actually the three split components of the Anterran leader General Mushrambo, who originally orchestrated the genocide of the human race.]]
* FrillyUpgrade: A rare ''male'' example is Mushra. His most powerful form as [[spoiler:a Galaxial god]] is, in fact, his regular orange armour with pink frills added.
* FrothyMugsOfWater: In the ToonDisney version, Kutaal somehow gets drunk on apple juice.


Added DiffLines:

* GoldenSuperMode: Mushrambo has a golden armored form that's only second to [[spoiler:God Mushra]]. Earlier in the series, a HumongousMecha turns gold when at full power.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Kaiju}}: Enterrans are basically {{mons}} that populate the earth AfterTheEnd. They don't get ginormous... usually. One BigBad has as TheDragon an ''actual'' three-headed dragon named Grendora. Grendora is positively enormous, shoots ice blasts, and uses canned Godzilla roars.


Added DiffLines:

* MacGuffinLocation: Yakumo is trying to reach the eponymous Shinzo, the last human city several centuries in the future. In the original Japanese version it's called "Mushrambo", after the main character's [[FusionDance fusion form]].


Added DiffLines:

* MentalFusion: The [[{{mons}} Enterrans]] turn to cards when killed and can be absorbed for power, or can do it voluntarily to give another Enterran SuperEmpowering, returning to normal afterward. Sago and Kutal would later on do this to give Mushra enough power to enter his [[OneWingedAngel (near)]] [[SuperMode final form.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MonumentalBattle: A fight in the second episode finally shatters the already-wrecked Statue of Liberty. Nobody but the viewer knows the significance of it.


Added DiffLines:

* OrcusOnHisThrone: Lanancuras, who technically has a good reason to sit on his throne: it's his prison. Except he never tried breaking out until AFTER the barrier maiden had discovered the power to keep him there, which is three hundred years (five hundred in the dub). And he does absolutely nothing during that time. This is the result of a second-season {{Retcon}} that revealed him as TheManBehindTheMan of the original BigBad.
* OutdoorBathPeeping: In the 7th episode of ''Anime/{{Shinzo}}'', Yakumo is looked at while bathing in a lake by monster warriors who try to attack her. But [[KidHero Mushra]] shows up and fights them -- [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn and gives Yakumo a towel.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ThePromisedLand: The eponymous Shinzo is a Promised Land for the human lead Yukumo to find the rest of the human race, in a world populated by animal-human hybrids called Enterrans. [[spoiler: It turns out that Shinzo doesn't exist anymore, as Mushra, Katul, and Sago go 500 years back in time to the end of the Human-Enterran War, and find out Mushrambo had destroyed it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* StorybreakerPower: The Mushrambo upgrade makes the trio (Mushra, Saago, and Kutall) unstoppable when they [[FusionDance fuse together]]. His first appearance is bad enough and further alterations make him even more overpowered. The villains recognize they can't beat him and so their plans involve exploiting the transformation somehow. At the end of the first season, all they can do is summon an ''evil'' Mushrambo because nothing else is up to the task.

* HotBlooded: Both played semi-straight and interestingly subverted: Mushra, though as his power increases by transforming into Hyper Mushra and then even further into Mushrambo, his hot blood actually ''cools down'' a fair bit, appearing to increase his maturity alongside his power level.
