* CerebusSyndrome: A very strange example. The first season starts off simple enough--Roger solving self-contained mysteries--then episode 13 kicks in and season two becomes...[[MindScrew weird.]]

* OnlyTheChosenMayWield: Megadei can only be piloted reliably by those they judge to be worthy ("Ye Not Guilty"). If someone isn't meant to pilot it, it either won't work, or will punish the one who tries.

* MerchandiseDriven: Believe it or not, the anime was originally written to advertise a line of giant robot toys, thus the fact that there are mechas in it ''at all''. In fact, some have commented that the shoe as a whole would've be far superior if the whole mecha element were to be removed altogether.

Paradigm City is a strange metropolis that seems to be a cross between a FilmNoir UsefulNotes/{{New York|City}} and a City of the Future. Forty years ago, its inhabitants were struck by a mysterious case of amnesia that robbed them of their past and sense of self. Yet life continues on, and the people of Paradigm City have come to a sense of peace with their lost history.

Forty years ago, amnesia struck all the inhabitants of Paradigm City, a strange metropolis that seems to be 75% FilmNoir UsefulNotes/{{New York|City}} and 25% City of the Future. In the decades since, life has gone on, despite the loss of history, the loss of past, and the loss of self which has struck each and every inhabitant.

Roger Smith is one of them. A former member of the Military Police, Roger now makes his living as a negotiator (a combination of private investigator and professional go-between). It's a job that pays well, as the penthouse atop his private building proves. Roger has been described as half [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]], half Franchise/JamesBond -- but when negotiations fail, he has something else to fall back on: The Big O, a giant battle robot (known in this show as a "Megadeus" -- pronounced "mega-deuce" in the English dub and "Mega-day-oos" in the original Japanese) that he stores in the abandoned subway tunnels under the city.

And fall back on it Roger must; after forty years, lost secrets and forgotten memories are returning, and all manner of threats to Paradigm City and its people are coming with them. Aided by his butler Norman and the sarcastic (and opinionated) android girl R. Dorothy Waynewright -- along with (occasionally) his former commanding officer in the police, Major Dan Dastun, and the mysterious and beautiful free agent who tells Roger to just call her "Angel" -- Roger faces off against monstrous forces from all manner of enemies while simultaneously pursuing the truth behind Paradigm City's lost history.

Roger Smith is a "negotiator" living in Paradigm City: part-PrivateDetective, part-professional go-between. Roger is one of them. A former member of the Military Police, Roger now makes most trusted and well-paid men in his living as a negotiator (a combination of private investigator and professional go-between). It's a job that pays well, as the penthouse atop his private building proves. Roger has been described as half [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]], half Franchise/JamesBond -- but when field. Yet if negotiations fail, break down or a disaster threatens the peace of the city, he has something else to fall back on: The Big O, one hell of an ace up his sleeve: the "Big O", a giant [[HumongousMecha titanic battle robot (known in this show robot]] officially classified as a "Megadeus" -- pronounced "mega-deuce" in the English dub and "Mega-day-oos" in the original Japanese) that he stores in the abandoned subway tunnels under the city.

And fall back on it Roger must; after
"megadeus".

After
forty years, lost something is causing the secrets and forgotten memories are returning, and buried within Paradigm to break through to the surface. With the aid of an eclectic group of characters, Roger must fight to protect the people of Paradigm against all manner of threats to Paradigm City and its people are coming with them. Aided by his butler Norman and the sarcastic (and opinionated) android girl R. Dorothy Waynewright -- along with (occasionally) his former commanding officer in the police, Major Dan Dastun, and the mysterious and beautiful free agent who tells Roger to just call her "Angel" -- Roger faces off against monstrous forces from all manner of enemies threats while simultaneously pursuing the truth behind Paradigm City's within the city's lost history.
