* ArrogantKungFuGuy: He is a great pilot and good martial artist and he will gladly inform everybody of it. Nonetheless, he is also a {{Deconstruction}} of the trope. When he is angry he can be a world-class jerk. Later you find out that he is so arrogant because he tries to hide he has a HUGE InferioritySuperiorityComplex and an utter lack of self-steem. Nevertheless, all of that arrogance and underlying confidence and abandonment issues caused MANY troubles throughout the series.

** In Tranzor Z, Koji was named Tommy Davis, which was somewhat confusing as he was unrelated to the counterparts of Sayaka Yumi and her father, whose last names were also Davis. He was voiced by Gregg Berger in the dub.

* [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse What Happened To The Big Bad?]]: One of the most strange instances of this trope. Tetsuya, Jun, Kouji and Sayaka [[spoiler:obliterated his army]] but they never found his subterranean empire’s capital, neither attacked him. He remained in the underground, and we never saw what happened to him after that point. You had to read the UFORoboGrendizer Ota’s manga to find out what was his fate.

* TenMinuteRetirement: From all possible times, he did this during the GrandFinale. Tetsuya had grown so jealous of Kouji that he refused to sortie. Bad idea, yes.

* TookALevelInBadass (ShinMazinger): While most of the time they're there for the audience to have a laugh, he and his two lackeys, Mucha and Nuke (who are revealed to know martial arts), rescue Kouji from Baron Ashura's clutches. In the final battle they help out in their mecha, Boss Borot, by catching a freaking ICBM, stopping Baron Ashura him/herself from flattening the heroes, and pulling Mazinger out of the rubble of the city, enabling Kouji to fight. Boss also becomes GenreSavvy by the end: "Don't worry about us, we're the comic-relief characters who get blown up but still live!"

* BreakoutCharacter: In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'', especially ''Alpha Gaiden'' where he play a much more important role in the story, and have connection to an important plot of the story. The fact that his nemesis is this as well might help.



* DemotedToExtra: In ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'', he get an injury and PutOnABus. However, in the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' games based of the ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'' OVA, he got dialogue exchanges with the major villains from the other series.

* AliensMadeThemDoIt: The scene where the Zenteradi abduct the main characters from Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross and ask "I demand you show me how this 'kiss' process works" gets parodied in a ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' 4koma and Boss is amongst the people they kidnapped in the parody.
* [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace Boss Can Breathe In Space]] According to ''Anime/MazingerZ'', the Boss Borot has an open-air cockpit. But when Mazinger Z appears in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', the Boss Borot can normally be deployed in space just fine without apparent modifications. (It will perform like crap due to having a terrible rating for space combat, but in both ''Mazinger Z'' and ''Super Robot Wars'' the Boss Borot is a JokeCharacter anyways.)

** In Neo Super Robot Wars (not to be confused with ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsNEO'') Boss Borot gets a spacesuit of sorts and the moniker Super Boss Borot to get around this. Boss Borot is also not usable in space at all in some of the classic SRW games, usually dealt with by removing it from your party for space levels rather than disallowing it.



* MagikarpPower: He is an example in the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' series. He starts off in a terrible machine with low stats and little value except a cheap repair cost. However, if you level him high enough (usually around 80) his subpilots Nuke and Mucha get a ton of incredibly useful spells for dirt cheap and his stats go through the roof. In addition by this time you'll usually have Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}, which means that Boss can get out of his terrible machine and upgrade to Mazinger Z. The trick is that level 80 is absurdly high in a game series where the final bosses rarely get above the mid-70s. There are ways to level him up that high, but they're generally inefficient or a lot of trouble.



* TheUnfought: But he can be fought in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha 2'' and ''3''



* AliensMadeThemDoIt: The scene where the Zentraedi abduct the main characters from Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross and ask "I demand you show me how this 'kiss' process works" gets parodied in a ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' 4koma and Dr. Hell is amongst the people they kidnapped in the parody.



* VillainTeamUp: Dr. Hell hires [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Gauron]] in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment'', works with the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Zeon]] in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' and works with the [[Anime/GoLion Galra]] [[{{Voltron}} Empire]] in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsW''.
