Added DiffLines:
* FriendlessBackground: Outright stated in the 2003 series that a younger Tenma had to build his own robot friends, because he couldn't make any the conventional way.

!! Dr. Umatarō Tenma / Dr. Boynton / Dr. Balthus
to:
!! Dr. Umatarō Umataro Tenma / Dr. Boynton / Dr. Balthus

Added DiffLines:
!! Dr. Umatarō * DrivenToMadness: In the original manga, Tenma / Dr. Boynton / Dr. Balthushad a fair bit of SanitySlippage upon realizing he wanted Astro back to the point of pointing a gun at his robot parents, as well as feeling mankind as a whole was inferior to robots. In the 2003 anime, he takes the latter as far as it can go to the point of conspiring to mold Astro into his "King of Robots", who would lead them in taking the Earth...[[{{Hypocrite}} himself being the sole human they would answer to, of course.]]

Added DiffLines:
!! Dr. Umatarō Tenma / Dr. Boynton / Dr. Balthus* {{Hypocrite}}: Humans are inferior to machines, says he. Except him. Robots should obey him when it's convenient.

Added DiffLines:
!! Dr. Umatarō * OrangeAndBlueMorality: With exception of the CG movie, in all incarnations (save for the one or two where he presumably died) Tenma / Dr. Boynton / Dr. Balthusalways becomes antagonistic, outright villainous even, but eventually abandons whatever mad pursuit he has in mind in order to support Astro. However, one should note that Tenma never actually ''abandons'' whatever his twisted ideology became, he just backs off of it for the sake of his robot son.

* OneHitKill: Pluto's most terrifying means of offense: to catch an enemy inbetween his horns, and then channel a sudden, immense electromagnetic burst between them. If a robot is not ''specifically'' defended against this, they'll be immediately destroyed.

!! Photar / Epsilon
to:
!! Photar Epsilon / EpsilonPhotar

!! Photar / Epsilon* {{Badass}}: The original managed to hold his own against Pluto, despite being much, much weaker --even compared to Pluto's previous victims-- and as for the female incarnation, she absolutely ''wrecked'' Pluto for a while. [[spoiler: Then he exploited her fear for harming sea life in their battle.]]

to:
* LightEmUp: A photon-based robot, thus granting them theoretically infinite energy. The female incarnation weaponizes this, converting her energy into a gigantic energy beam powerful enough to even send ''Pluto'' flying. * ShockAndAwe: The original Epsilon used the antenna upon his head to channel intense bolts of electricity.

* ArmCannon
to:
* ArmCannonArmCannon: Gained it with the 2003 series in his left arm, wherein it became and still remains his most powerful weapon of all.

* FlyingBrick
to:
* FlyingBrickFlyingBrick: His usual "fighting style" consists of "fly towards it with my fist out and watch it smash". Given how ''fast'' he can chain these rammings together, it's quite an effective method regardless.

* FlyingBrickLivingLieDetector: Part of the "Seven Special Powers" package. However, Astro ''can'' be tricked into thinking it's incorrect, and it tends not to work so well with robots as it does humans.

* FlyingBrickMoreDakka: Finger lasers, a WaveMotionGun arm and a seemingly bottomless cache for his machine guns means Astro can open continuous fire for quite a while.

to:
* SuperPrototype: In the 2003 series --specifically highlighted in the manga-- Astro is this. Essentially, Tenma created two ultimate works: the world's most powerful combat robot, "Prototype-G", and the world's first and purest AI, devoid of corrupt thought patterns. He put these two together, and wham-bam, you get Astro. * SuperSpeed: Considering Astro can at ''least'' break escape velocity, those rocket legs aren't just for show. * TookALevelInBadass: During the infamous "World's Strongest Robot" storyline, Astro was given the boost of one ''million'' horsepower by Dr. Tenma in order to overcome Pluto. Unlike your typical plot wherein the hero learns they had the power inside them all along and etc., Astro keeps the upgrade. Well, until the time travel arc, where his original self was destroyed and succeeding appearances returned him to the usual hundred thousand.

* BadassAdorable
to:
* BadassAdorableBadassAdorable: Given the fact that he's a combat robot that resembles a small boy, it's not a big surprise.

Astro's "sister". Much brattier than her brother, she has fewer compunctions about using her abilities for personal gain & sometimes shows less regard for human life, or at least human values as well, which would be kind of scary if she weren't so darned cute. Though she is less interested in humans than her brother, she has a fondness for other living things & in some versions is able to communicate with animals. In her debut story she also gained the power to split herself in two, but due to her strength being halved it is never used again. Uran's origins are somewhat vague, as Tezuka sometimes stated she was created by Ochanomizu & at other times by Tenma as a failed prototype.

"The World's Strongest Robot". A giant monster of a machine with the sole purpose of hunting down & killing all the world's most powerful robots, a job which he has no particular enthusiasm for, but feels is the only thing he is capable of doing. Originally this was simply so that his selfish owner could boast that he had the greatest robot on Earth, but later versions usually assign deeper & more sinister motives for his killing spree. The [[{{Pluto}} title character]] of an UltimateUniverse remake by Creator/NaokiUrasawa, acclaimed creator of ''{{Anime/Monster}}'' & ''TwentiethCenturyBoys''.

A robot revolutionary who wants to create a nation where androids can live freely, no matter what the cost. Think of him as [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement the Malcolm X to Astro's Dr. King]] & you're not too far off.
