* {{Pun}}: It's not often noticed, but the creators of the series don't spell Toros' "hovering snail-shaped Zoid that carries cargo" "Hover Cargo" but "Hovercargot". (groan)

* HoverSkates: The Berserk Fury can move like this, firing its various thrusters to cruise along just above the ground.
** Jamie also uses a pair of boots that let him slide along the ground in one episode; it basically lets him go skiing on a slope that's grassy instead of snow-covered.

* EjectionSeat: Zoids come equipped with them for pilot safety. Mostly seen used with aerial zoids, as a mid-air combat system freeze is likely to result in a lethal crash. Other zoids rarely use them, as being in an armored cockpit of a disabled zoid is usually safer than being on foot in the middle of a zoid battle. However, they ''do'' have them, just in case -- most notably seen when [[spoiler:Vega in the [[MeaningfulName Berserk Fury]]]] ejects after his zoid goes berserk and starts fighting ''without input from the cockpit''.

* MasterOfAll: In contrast to the Liger Zero's MultiformBalance, the Berserk Fury is this. It equips both a [[WaveMotionGun charged particle cannon]] and an [[BeehiveBarrier energy shield]] for enormous offensive and defensive abilities, has extremely quick reaction times and the capability to ride on its thrusters and float above the ground like a high-speed HoverTank. To round out its abilities (and avoid CripplingOverspecialization), it has a pair of "buster claws" (actually large, multi-purpose blades mounted over its shoulders) that provide [[BeamSpam rapid fire capability]] with their integrated [[FrickinLaserBeams beam cannons]], plus melee firepower by spinning rapidly to provide a [[ThisIsADrill drill-like effect]].

* {{Irony}}: Leena's favored combat method is the AlphaStrike, which works well with her Dibison and its [[MoreDakka sixteen cannons]]. Her MidSeasonUpgrade, however, was a Gun Sniper -- a zoid know for precision attacks more than volume of fire. Leena has hers modified with a ''ton'' of extra weapons, which she delights in firing all at once... [[ComicallyMissingThePoint except the build-in sniper rifle]], which she's never shown using.

* {{Fanservice}}: The series doesn't indulge in it ''too'' heavily, but it has its moments. There are a number of scenes where the characters are [[WalkingShirtlessScene shirtless]], [[ModestyTowel wearing towels]], or in bikinis for no readily apparent reason besides this trope, not to mention the number of women wearing [[LatexSpaceSuit very form fitting battle uniforms]] and [[MaleGaze lingering shots]] of their [[BoobsOfSteel well-developed busts]] throughout the series. Then there's [[MsFanservice Naomi]], who embodies most of those at once.

* BlackBox: The Liger Zero has one, prompting a baffled reaction from the mechanics that discover it.

* BlackBox: The Liger Zero has one, prompting a baffled reaction from the mechanics that discover it. It's implied to be [[spoiler:the organoid system that makes the Liger Zero an Ultimate X]].



* CloseCallHaircut: The mecha version occurs in the final battle. The Liger Zero surprises the Berserk Fury by leaping out of a SmokeShield and immediately launching a Strike Laser Claw. The Berserk Fury manages to dodge, but just barely -- the attack actually ''peels the armor plating off its head''. Given that the Berserk Fury's ''cockpit'' is in its head (like most zoids), the fact that the attack didn't quite land is [[CouldHaveBeenMessy probably for the best]].



* SpiritedCompetitor: While some pilots fight for glory, money, or power, about half the cast fights for the sheer love of zoid battles. Prominent examples include Bit, Leon, Vega, and Jack Cisco. This attitude is also what inspires Stoller and Pierce to defect from the Backdraft Group.

* XMakesAnythingCool: The extremely powerful zoids with [[spoiler:organoid systems]] are referred to as "Ultimate X" zoids for no readily apparent reason besides this trope.

* {{Irony}}: Leena's favored combat method is the AlphaStrike; her MidSeasonUpgrade Zoid? a Gun Sniper - which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin and modified to suit her needs. It's actual trademark weapon isn't even fired when she lets off her infamous barrages.
