** Alex Rosewater is more of a subversion- rather than being based on anyone from the Batman mythos, he seems very much modeled after Lex Luthor. DC themselves may well have acknowledged this- the scene from SupermanDoomsday where Lex watches the brawl between Superman and Doomsday is almost a shot-for-shot remake of Rosewater watching Big Duo battling Big O.

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.

''The Big O'' was created by Creator/{{Sunrise}} studios and premiered in Japan in October 1999. Though originally planned as a 26 episodes series, low viewership in Japan meant that production was ceased after only 13 had been completed. The series fared better internationally however, where it received a very positive reception after airing on on Creator/CartoonNetwork in April 2001. This caught the network's attention and as a result they offered Sunrise and Bandai Visual to join as co-producers on a second season, consisting of the 13 unproduced episodes, which starting airing in Japan in January 2003 and in August that year the US.

Not to be confused with [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam The O]]. Or big-O notation in mathematics or computer science. Or the tire store. Or the FanNickname for the Olympic Stadium in Montreal. Or the common nickname for legendary 1960s NBA player Oscar Robertson. Or Music/RoyOrbison. Or TheImmodestOrgasm. Or BigNo, either. And try not to mistake the sixth DVD, "The Big O: Missing Pieces" for Creator/ShelSilverstein's book ''The Missing Piece Meets the Big O''. The name actually seems to be one of the many religious references (like "Behemoth and Leviathan") that appear in the show, in this case to "Alpha and Omega" - the name of the Greek letter "Omega" literally means "Big O", in contrast with Omicron (O-Micron), which means "little O".

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Almost certainly by accident, R. Dorothy Wayneright has a very similar name to a character on YesMinister, Dorothy Wainwright. Go on and guess what the "Wayne" part refers too...

There is a very Japanese cultural perspective here, in that wherever Roger goes in his investigation of the Monster of the Week, the people he talks to always think it is "a god." Anything strange or inexplicable is attributed to the gods. Each of the giant robots is even explicitly referred to as a "Mega''deus''."

* HypocriticalHumor: When Dorothy first shows up at Roger's place looking for protection, Roger muses that Norman must be going senile to have mistaken her for a human (he's not in the room). Dorothy is quick to point out that Roger was also fooled until he got a close look, so he changes the subject.
