* BadassBeard: His true face sports one.

to:

* BadassBeard: His true face (located on his chest) sports one.



* BreakoutVillain: He only lasted roughly 3/4 through the whole show. However, he is popular enough that he got two movie adaptation that stars him as the main villain. There is a good chance that someone who never watched the original series did not know that he is actually not the BigBad.



* [[HeroesPreferSwords Villains Prefer Swords]]: He wears a big, broad, double-edged long sword.



* SpotlightStealingSquad

to:

* SpotlightStealingSquadUndyingLoyalty: Loyal to the Mycenae Empire, he will strike down any threat to it, whether it be the Mazinger robots or a rogue within the Empire's ranks.



* ClarkesThirdLaw: Marquis Janus employs some sort of witchcraft in battle allowing her to fly, teleport, and turn invisible; though it seems more likely to be from the advanced technology of the Empire, shown when Janus uses electronic spikes to control people's minds.
* CleavageWindow: In her human disguise, she a green dress with yellow bands and a diamond shape opening on the chest showing her cleavage.



* BlackMagicianGirl
** LadyOfBlackMagic



* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]: In the last episode.

* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]: [[spoiler: In the last episode.final battle against the Great Mazinger and its allies, Janus entered the battle but was destroyed when she and her robot crashed to the computers and caused the Demonika to explode.]]
* LadyOfBlackMagic: Subverted. She seems a sort of witch, but her powers derivated from advanced technology.



* TwoFaced

to:

* TwoFaced
TwoFaced: Yanus had a human face she used to blend among humans, and her true, demonic-looking face was on the "back" of her head, covered with strands of hair.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Has purple hair horn-shaped.



!! Tropes:

* AgonyBeam Dr. Hell uses a staff that shoots a blast of (usually) non-lethal electricity to punish Ashura when he/she/it screws up.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: He's ''purple''. No indication why, since he's seemingly human.
* BeardOfEvil: It is white, it is bristly, it is long and it is positively epic.
* BigBad: In Anime/MazingerZ.
* TheyCalledMeMad: Subverted. They did not call him mad. They called him dumb and useless. THAT is what sets him off.
* DemotedToDragon
* DubNameChange: In Tranzor Z, the American imported version, Dr. Hell was called Dr. Demon. In the Spanish dub in the Seventies he was called Doctor Infierno (literal translation), and his Great Mazinger Incarnation was called Mariscal Infierno (Marshal Hell).
* EyepatchOfPower: He wears one after his transformation.
* FauxAffablyEvil
* FromNobodyTonightmare: when he was young he was a sad boy born in an impoverished family everybody scorned and abused. 40 years later he was building weapons for Hitler. Thirty years later he was trying to take over the world with an army of HumongousMecha. A while later he was the supreme commander of an underground empire intended to conquer the surface world.
* IOweYouMyLife: He serves the Mykene Emperor because he saved his life –disregarding he got him killed indirectly-.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Because a lot of people hurt HIM emotionally and physically when he was a little boy and a young man, he wants making the whole humankind to pay, bow down to HIM and acknowledge HIS genius. The fact all of it happened several decades ago (he was seventy when the series began) does not deter him at the slightest. Oh, and he thought everybody were out to get him (long before everybody were).
* KickTheDog: More like grabbing the dog’s tail and banging it repeatedly against a wall until the poor mutt was a bloody pulp. Yes, it really happened (in the Gosaku Ota’s episodes).
** DisproportionateRetribution: And it happened because he did not like how the dog was looking to him.
* KneelBeforeZod: His main drive to take over the world is he wishes forcing the entire humankind to bowing down to him.
* LargeHam
* LoveDodecahedron – In Anime/CBCharaGoNagaiWorld with [[Manga/{{Devilman}} Akira, Miki, Siren, Kaim and Ryo]]
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: He was quite unstable and troubled before –seeing KickTheDog example-, but arguably it was when he found out his love was unrequited he utterly snapped, and it led him to…
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Decide to MurderTheHypotenuse. People had shunned him out before, but from that day they started giving him a wide berth because he started seeming ObviouslyEvil (and downright creepy).
* MadScientist
* ObviouslyEvil: Dr. Hell has pale purple skin, a long white BeardOfEvil, and is prone to maniacal laughter. Oh, and his name is [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Dr. Hell]]. The bizarre part is that his back-story involves betraying a group of companions in order to get some {{Phlebotinum}}, which means that someone, somewhere, was willing to ''trust'' him.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: He is a MadScientist wants taking over the world! It is practically a requirement!
* ShirtlessScene: He pulls this at the end of the ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'' OVA [[FanDisservice for seemingly no reason, and despite being a very old man.]]
** He gets upgraded to a WalkingShirtlessScene in ''Manga/ShinMazingerZero'', as well as inexplicably having a bodybuilder's physique.
* WeaponOfChoice: His left hand is an oversized mix between vice claw and hook.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: … And he wants becoming this!

!! Tropes:

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Though [[DumbassHasAPoint he did have good points from time to time]], and sometimes was more mature than ''Kouji'' himself.
* BadassAdorable: He could make some impressive feats when he wanted or needed. [[spoiler:In episode 9 the Professors Morimori, Sewashi and Nossori had been brainwashed by Baron Ashura in helping him. Shiro beat the crap out of them. Agreed, they were brainwashed and they were older men; still, it was one single child against three adult men]]
* MouthyKid
* PluckyComicRelief
* SmarterThanYouLook: During his first few appearances, his acts make him looking like TooDumbToLive (for starters, while Koji is horrified by the Iron Mask, especially after killing it, all he says is that Koji is so cool for killing the Iron Mask). Later on in the series, he learned to pilot the Pilder in relatively short time ([[FallingIntoTheCockpit bonus points since unlike Koji, he has practically zero experience in piloting the Pilder,]] while Koji mentions that the control is similar to his motorbike) and pulls a BigDamnHeroes several times, that really says something. ([[FridgeBrilliance Of course, he IS a member of Kabuto family]])
* WiseBeyondHisYears: He seems pretty mature for his age. Then again, maybe it is due to he constantly hangs around his brother, who is somewhat immature for his age.
** More because he is forced to life on his own without a parents care. Juzo is implied to spend most of his time to build Anime/MazingerZ, and Koji is handling the household jobs, and go to school, thus leaving him alone.
*** And let's not forget [[spoiler:his supposedly dead father was too busy building Great Mazinger to take care of them AND tell them he was alive.]]

[[folder:Dr. Gennosuke Yumi]]

!!Dr. Gennosuke Yumi
!!!Voice Actor: Creator/JojiYanami
[[quoteright:186:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Yumi_Gennosuke_2902.jpg]]

Professor Yumi is Sayaka's father as well as the director of the Photoatomic Institute and Dr. Kabuto's pupil. Dr. Kabuto passed onto him his knowledge of Photon energy and Alloy Z, and Yumi later used that knowledge to build Aphrodite A, a prototype robot created to test the possibilities of both. Aphrodite never was created as a war mecha because Yumi was a pacifist who intended to use Photon enery and Japanium for peaceful goals.

And then he found out that the Photon Institute was the target of villains who intended to use that technology to conquer the world. And his master had built the most powerful robot ever made to protect the place.

Once Dr. Kabuto died, he took the Kabuto siblings in and led the good guys. Although he was a kind person, he mainly was aloof, serene and calculating, traits he needed to be a good scientist and leader. He was highly intelligent and capable of keeping calm during crisis, was willing to hear good advice and could come up with plans quickly. Nobody questioned his leadership –although Kouji undermined him constantly-, and everybody accepted his authority.

Unfortunately he was not a very good father. His work in the Institute and the protection of the world were most important to him that anything, including family. Thus, he neglected Sayaka many times and he was missing when she needed him (the scene in the last episodes of Great Mazinger where he blatantly states he does not want her to sortie in Diana-A because he does not want her to get killed was a CrowningMomentofHeartwarming precisely because it).

Right like most of the Anime/MazingerZ cast, he did not return until the end of Anime/GreatMazinger, where he tried giving council and advice and help. After [[spoiler: Prof. Kabuto’s sudden death]] during the final battle he quickly took command in a chaotic and rapidly-degenerating situation, helping the heroes to regroup and strike back.

!'''The Mykene Empire'''

[[folder:Emperor of Darkness]]

!!Emperor of Darkness
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Emperor_of_Darkness_979.jpg]]

The Emperor of Darkness was the supreme ruler and warlord of the Mykene. Its main goal was leading the Mykene back to the surface. However, he left the war planning and development of operations to its commanders, limiting itself to replace them when they failed too much or died. He never left his throne and never travelled to the surface. Its most important action in the series was [[spoiler:bring Dr. Hell back to life.]]



* {{Acrofatic}}: Boss was pretty fat, but he could be fast when he wanted. Combine that with him being strong and sturdy, and you have he could deliver a good beating when he needed to on anyone (except Kouji, much to his chagrin and disgust).
* [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace Boss Can Breathe In Space]] According to ''Anime/MazingerZ'', the Boss Borot has an open-air cockpit.
** This actually has a Justification: any mecha (not just Borot) that isn't airtight simply has the pilot wear a spacesuit.
* BigDamnHeroes: Surprisingly, he does. It is PlayedForLaughs most of the time, but there's just too many situations that if he had not helped Koji, he would be done for.
** Maybe the best example of it was the Mazinger vs Great General of Darkness movie: he blew Dante up, a monster that had seemed untouchable until that moment, and distracted the Mykene Robeasts for several seconds. It does not sound like much, but it does when you realize [[spoiler:those extra seconds saved Kouji's life.]]
* ButtMonkey: Often he was the target of many jokes and laughs.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Boss is the ButtMonkey, HopelessSuitor and PluckyComicRelief {{Gonk}} character. He is mocked and ridiculized by his friends and belittled by the villains, and he gets beaten easily in each battle. Still, when he is angry he can get ''scarily'' competent and even badass. He is {{Acrofatic}} and perfectly capable of holding his own on a fistfight, and although his HumongousMecha is a pile of scrap gets destroyed in every fight, he has blown up some dangerous {{Robeast}}s and pulled off several awesome BigDamnHeroes moments. Also, threatening Kouji -his [[VitriolicBestBuds vitriollic best buddy]]- or Sayaka -his crush- is a bad idea.
* {{Delinquents}}
* DumbassHasAPoint: More frequently than you'd expect. I.e., when [[AchillesInHisTent Kouji refuses to help Sayaka]] after they have a fight and she takes off in Mazinger Z, Boss, Mucha and Nuke are the ones who urge him to stop whining and go for her.
* DubNameChange: To Bobo in Tranzor Z
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Treated as a joke, by almost everyone. Even Ashura underestimated him, so much that at one moment, he/she says that he is not a problem, at all. It should be noted that were talking about someone whose BigDamnHeroes moment is second only to Tetsuya. He saves Koji's life so many times during the series, and he is ridiculously helpful during Koji's fight against the mechabeast. Naturally, [[FridgeBrilliance Koji is the only person that treated him the way he should be.]]
** And in the ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' tai ''Manga/GetterRobo'' movie, after [[spoiler:destroying the monstruous Gilgilgan]], Tetsuya and the Getter team shook -their robots- hands, congratulating themselves for their victory [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bpla65eQCE]]... and then Boss Borot's head -that was the only body part had been left of it!- stumbled between them and remembered them angrily he also took part in the battle. Tetsuya and the Getter team laughed, and the former admited their plan had worked thanks to him. Boss smiled, stating it was about time someone acknowledged his talent.
* FanDisservice: that crotch shot of Boss in an undersized speedo. [[spoiler:''So much hair'']].
* {{Gonk}}
* HopelessSuitor: Boss has a painfully obvious crush on Sayaka. Of course, given that she's TheHero's {{Tsundere}} girlfriend and he's the {{Gonk}}ish comic relief, he doesn't stand a chance.
** By the end of the original Manga, he actually ''does'' have a chance, judging from how Sayaka acts in front of him however by this time, either he realized he has no chance(at first) or he already become such a good friend with Koji, that he doesnt care about it anymore.
** And in Anime/GreatMazinger, to Jun. This time, on the other hand, is played painfully straight.
* MadeOfIron: He had to be to endure the punishment he did and come out of alive.
* MauveShirt
-->'''Boss:''' We're here to get blown up but somehow never die!
* [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Only Known By His Nickname]]: Lampshaded in Anime/ShinMazinger
-->'''Boss:''' My nickname's Boss! Even the author doesn't know my real name!
** That scene actually debuted in the original Manga, only shorter.
-->'''Boss:''' Kabuto's close friend Boss. Even the author doesn't know my real name.
* OnlySaneMan: In episode 7, Sayaka is losing her will to fight and Kouji is playing AchillesInHisTent. Meanwhile Boss is trying to remember them over and again there IS one Mechanical Beast coming, and all of them will die if they don't fight back! Later Kouji and Sayaka are apologizing at each other and Shiro notes boss was the only was right in that situation.
* SpannerInTheWorks: The different ''Mazinger sagas'' would be so much more different had Boss not interfered with the baddies plans. To clarify:
** In ''Anime/MazingerZ'', thanks to [[MemeticMutation Brocken]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Ball]], Koji is able to rescue the kidnapped civilians. Not to mention the fact that in the same series, he saved Koji's life several times, gaining Koji's respect in the process. And in the ''Mazinger-Z versus Great General of Darkness'', as a squad of Mykene Warrior Monsters are trashing Mazinger-Z he suddenly interfered. He only deterred them for several seconds, but those seconds were all that [[spoiler:Tetsuya needed to intervene with Great Mazinger and save Kouji's life. And because Kouji did not die, he could help to save the world in ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer''.]]
** In ''Anime/GreatMazinger'', if he would have not flirted with Jun and followed her when she was buying clothes, the good guys would be dead by the THIRD chapter.
** In the ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'' movie, he pretty much saved the world (which at that point is a CrapsackWorld). The Mycene's plan to send one of their general to attack Koji while he is out of Mazinkaiser is completely foiled because Boss attacked the general [[{{Irony}} with Boss Borot]].
* PaperThinDisguise: Apparently Baron Ashura's mooks can't tell the difference between Boss in a helmet and one of their co-workers. ''The mooks that were assigned to guard him and Kouji specifically, no less.''
* PluckyComicRelief: He even lampshades it in a ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' episode, whining about why he has to be the comedian.
* TheRival: To Kouji Kabuto.
* StayInTheKitchen: In Venus A first battle he got in the way of Jun several times. In one of them he stated "Girls must not fight". The ironic -and frustrating- part is he intervened right when Jun was gaining the upper hand, and because him, she could was unable to defeat the Warrior Beast.
* TookALevelInBadass (Anime/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!"
* TooDumbToLive: Sometimes he showed this trait. To be fair, so did Kouji.
* VerbalTic: Boss often ends his words with "Da wa sa". He discards it in the Mazinkaiser OVA, da wa sa.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Koji, they often bicker with each other, but they do get along rather well.

Tetsuya and the Getter team laughed, and the former admited their plan had worked thanks to him. Boss smiled, stating Anime/UFORoboGrendizer manga. And it was ACCIDENTAL.
* NonActionBigBad: Despite of being a very powerful threat, he never fought the heroes directly.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: He NEVER did ANYTHING throughout the series. He just sat on his throne as his lackeys planned the war. The only proactive action he did was [[spoiler:reviving Dr. Hell]], and that did not work as well when you think

!!Dr. Gennosuke Yumi
!!!Voice Actor: Creator/JojiYanami
[[quoteright:186:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Yumi_Gennosuke_2902.jpg]]

Professor Yumi is Sayaka's father as well as the director of the Photoatomic Institute and Dr. Kabuto's pupil. Dr. Kabuto passed onto him his knowledge of Photon energy and Alloy Z, and Yumi later used that knowledge to build Aphrodite A, a prototype robot created to test the possibilities of both. Aphrodite never was created as a war mecha because Yumi was a pacifist who intended to use Photon enery and Japanium for peaceful goals.

And then he found out that the Photon Institute was the target of villains who intended to use that technology to conquer the world. And his master had built the most powerful robot ever made to protect the place.

Once Dr. Kabuto died, he took the Kabuto siblings in and led the good guys. Although he was a kind person, he mainly was aloof, serene and calculating, traits he needed to be a good scientist and leader. He was highly intelligent and capable of keeping calm during crisis, was willing to hear good advice and could come up with plans quickly. Nobody questioned his leadership –although Kouji undermined him constantly-, and everybody accepted his authority.

Unfortunately he was not a very good father. His work in the Institute and the protection of the world were most important to him that anything, including family. Thus, he neglected Sayaka many times and he was missing when she needed him (the scene in the last episodes of Great Mazinger where he blatantly states he does not want her to sortie in Diana-A because he does not want her to get killed was a CrowningMomentofHeartwarming precisely because it).

Right like most of the Anime/MazingerZ cast, he did not return until the end of Anime/GreatMazinger, where he tried giving council and advice and help. After [[spoiler: Prof. Kabuto’s sudden death]] during the final battle he quickly took command in a chaotic and rapidly-degenerating situation, helping the heroes to regroup and strike back.

!!Tropes:

* BadassBiker
* BadassAndChildDuo: His little brother usually hangs around him. Needless to say, threaten Shiro and the pain you will feel will depend on whether Kouji is or is not riding his HumongousMecha in the time.
* BattleCouple: The male half, with Sayaka as the female.
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Sayaka.
* BigEater: Kouji is occasionally shown to be one. Hell, in the ''Mazinkaizer'' movie, he eats about ten times as much as the rest of the table ''combined'' ([[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vlcsnap-1738084.JPG yes, those dishes are all his]]) before insisting that he's ''still'' hungry.
* BigNo: Kouji screams one when his grandfather dies.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: By the Vegans in the Anime/UFORoboGrendizer Creator/GoNagai manga, and the UFO Robot Grendizer tai Great Mazinger movie.
** And by Viscount Pygman in the series.
* TheBusCameBack: He and Sayaka went to America after the end of the original series, and they were not seen again until the end of Great Mazinger.
* CallingYourAttacks In GratuitousEnglish: Koji's most famous trait (and indeed, his legacy) is his habit of yelling out weapon names before using them. His most famous battle cries, "RocketPunch!" (that sent one or both of Mazinger's forearms flying at a foe), "[[ChestBlaster Breast Fire]]!" (which activated the red heat sinks on Mazinger's chest, melting most enemies to slag) and "Majin Go!" are well-known in Japan, even by people who have never watched Mazinger before. This has since become [[TropeCodifier the trademark]] of SuperRobot pilots everywhere.
** The only ones that averted this were the [[EyeBeams Photon Beam]], spoken in Japanese as "Koushiryoku Beam", Great Wheel Rocket Punch (Daisharin Rocket Punch), and the Freeze Ray.
* ChasteHero
* ChefOfIron: In original Manga. He is shown on screen to be the one that cooks for his household breakfast. It is also implied that his cooking is pretty good no matter how ridiculous it is (his croquette is huge (Sayaka said it’s a Mazinger class croquette referring to its size) and can shoot Rust Tornado (Unleash wind when cut) and Rocket Punch (launch a part of it when its cut, directly to Shiro's mouth), and of course he kicks ass in battle.
* CombatPragmatist: Like you wouldn't believe. In his first appearance, in which he just received Mazinger, his fight is filled by abusing the fact that Mazinger really IS invincible (at least for that point). During his second appearance, he is not above tricking his opponent to think that he gives up the fight only to kick ass. And he does this several time during the course of the series.
* {{Delinquents}}
* DistaffCounterpart: In the Mazinger Angels Z manga (a sequel to Mazinger Angels, a ''Series/CharliesAngels'' parody starring the female main characters of the Mazinger trilogy, with countless {{ShoutOut}}s to other Creator/GoNagai works), Kouji's role was given to Kikunosuke Abashiri, a character of Abashiri Ikka, an early manga from Go Nagai.
* DubNameChange
** 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 Creator/GreggBerger in the dub.
** When ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' was shown in the United States as part of ForceFive, Koji's name was Lance Hyatt.
** Italian translators never identified Kabuto as the same character in Grendizer and in the Mazinger series. In the Italian version of Grendizer (broadcast for first in Italy), Koji was called Alcor; in Mazinger Z, Ryo Kabuto; in Great Mazinger, Koji Kabuto. As a result, many in Italy thought that the heroes of Japanese cartoons all looked alike. In the Italian version of Mazinkaiser, he was called Koji Kabuto again.
** The same confusion took place in France: he was called Alcor in the French version of Grendizer (from which the Italian one was taken), and Koji in the French version of Mazinger Z (which was broadcast much later in France).
** The same kind of confusion took place in Arabic speaking nations: While he was still called Koji in the Arabic version of Grendizer, he was called ''Maher'' in the Arabic version of Mazinger Z that was translated after Grendizer's success in the Middle East.
** And in Spain he was called [[AlliterativeName Carlos Caribe]] in the Grendizer dub, despite of he was not renamed in the Mazinger Z dub.
* GeniusDitz: Unlike many similar hot-heads, Koji ''is'' actually exceptionally bright when he allows himself to think things through. This is demonstrated both in the Mazinger Z series, when at least twice he had to completely disable mechanical beasts with hostages inside (one of them being Sayaka's [[IllGirl disabled]] cousin, Yuri); and in the ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' series, where he builds his flying saucer all by himself and later develops the Cyclone Beam. He is also an excellent shot (demonstrated in the Mazinkaiser VS Ankoku Dai Shogun movie when he shoots Archduke Gorgon in both his tiger head and human head with one shot).
** It should be noted, that Koji is sent to America in Anime/GreatMazinger to study, so he can become a scientist since [[spoiler: Kenzo, Koji's father]] mentions that he has the scientist blood of Kabuto inside him. So, it’s pretty much hereditary.
* HamToHamCombat: In the Dynamic Heroes e-manga, Kouji fought the Great Marshall of Hell while riding Mazinger. It is noteworthy as it was, maybe, the first time in the history of the franchise Kouji and [[spoiler:Dr. Hell]] faced each other as both were riding giant robots. Too bad it was a CurbStompBattle.
* HeroicSacrifice: In Anime/CBCharaGoNagaiWorld, [[spoiler: Koji blowing up the Mazinger]]
* HotBlooded: Poster boy for this.
* HotbloodedSideburns: Their sideburns are unmistakable.
* IdiotHero
* IndyPloy: He is able to think strategically and plotting strategies beforehand. However, given his rash, hotheaded nature, he is VERY prone to impulsively rush/leap/dive headfirst into a dangerous situation and figuring out along the way how he will walk out of it alive. These [[http://www.mangago.com/r/l_manga/manga/mazinger_z_relic_of_terror/mf/manga/mazinger_z_relic_of_terror/c000/26/ two]] [[http://www.mangago.com/r/l_manga/manga/mazinger_z_relic_of_terror/mf/manga/mazinger_z_relic_of_terror/c000/27/ pages]] of the "Mazinger Z: Relic of Terror" one-shot are a godd example:
-->'''Kouji:''' There's no choice but for me to go and take it back!
-->'''Sayaka:''' But you don't even know what the enemy is...!
-->'''Kouji:''' I'll find out along the way!
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Despite the fact that he is kind of an IdiotHero at time he is as much as a genius as his father and grandfather. [[spoiler:He is also as bad as his father when it comes to ParentalAbandonment. At least in Anime/GreatMazinger.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* TheLancer: To Tetsuya Tsurugi.
* LargeHam
* ManlyTears: He has three VERY memorable tears moments. One is in the beginning, when his grandfather dies in his arms. The other two are in the "Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}} vs. the General of Darkness", [[spoiler: with Dr. Morimori's HeroicSacrifice, and when he finally defeats ALL the Mikene Empire and tearfully screams "My dead friends...

** In episode 90, Dr. Hell fabricated a cyborg looked exactly like her and sent it to the Institute in order to wreak havoc while he made preparations for the final battle. Naturally, that stratagem caused much grief, especially to Shiro.

!!Tropes:

* BadassBiker
* BadassAndChildDuo: His little brother usually hangs around him. Needless to say, threaten Shiro and the pain you will feel will depend on whether Kouji is or is not riding his HumongousMecha in the time.
* BattleCouple: The male half, with Sayaka as the female.
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Sayaka.
* BigEater: Kouji is occasionally shown to be one. Hell, in the ''Mazinkaizer'' movie, he eats about ten times as much as the rest of the table ''combined'' ([[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vlcsnap-1738084.JPG yes, those dishes are all his]]) before insisting that he's ''still'' hungry.
* BigNo: Kouji screams one when his grandfather dies.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: By the Vegans in the Anime/UFORoboGrendizer Creator/GoNagai manga, and the UFO Robot Grendizer tai Great
See [[Characters/MazingerZ Mazinger movie.
** And by Viscount Pygman in the series.
* TheBusCameBack: He and Sayaka went to America after the end of the original series, and they were not seen again until the end of Great Mazinger.
* CallingYourAttacks In GratuitousEnglish: Koji's most famous trait (and indeed, his legacy) is his habit of yelling out weapon names before using them. His most famous battle cries, "RocketPunch!" (that sent one or both of Mazinger's forearms flying at a foe), "[[ChestBlaster Breast Fire]]!" (which activated the red heat sinks on Mazinger's chest, melting most enemies to slag) and "Majin Go!" are well-known in Japan, even by people who have never watched Mazinger before. This has since become [[TropeCodifier the trademark]] of SuperRobot pilots everywhere.
** The only ones that averted this were the [[EyeBeams Photon Beam]], spoken in Japanese as "Koushiryoku Beam", Great Wheel Rocket Punch (Daisharin Rocket Punch), and the Freeze Ray.
* ChasteHero
* ChefOfIron: In original Manga. He is shown on screen to be the one that cooks for his household breakfast. It is also implied that his cooking is pretty good no matter how ridiculous it is (his croquette is huge (Sayaka said it’s a Mazinger class croquette referring to its size) and can shoot Rust Tornado (Unleash wind when cut) and Rocket Punch (launch a part of it when its cut, directly to Shiro's mouth), and of course he kicks ass in battle.
* CombatPragmatist: Like you wouldn't believe. In his first appearance, in which he just received Mazinger, his fight is filled by abusing the fact that Mazinger really IS invincible (at least for that point). During his second appearance, he is not above tricking his opponent to think that he gives up the fight only to kick ass. And he does this several time during the course of the series.
* {{Delinquents}}
* DistaffCounterpart: In the Mazinger Angels
Z manga (a sequel to Mazinger Angels, a ''Series/CharliesAngels'' parody starring the female main characters of the Mazinger trilogy, with countless {{ShoutOut}}s to other Creator/GoNagai works), Kouji's role was given to Kikunosuke Abashiri, a character of Abashiri Ikka, an early manga from Go Nagai.
* DubNameChange
** 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 Creator/GreggBerger in the dub.
** When ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' was shown in the United States as part of ForceFive, Koji's name was Lance Hyatt.
** Italian translators never identified Kabuto as the same character in Grendizer and in the Mazinger series. In the Italian version of Grendizer (broadcast for first in Italy), Koji was called Alcor; in Mazinger Z, Ryo Kabuto; in Great Mazinger, Koji Kabuto. As a result, many in Italy thought that the heroes of Japanese cartoons all looked alike. In the Italian version of Mazinkaiser, he was called Koji Kabuto again.
** The same confusion took place in France: he was called Alcor in the French version of Grendizer (from which the Italian one was taken), and Koji in the French version of Mazinger Z (which was broadcast much later in France).
** The same kind of confusion took place in Arabic speaking nations: While he was still called Koji in the Arabic version of Grendizer, he was called ''Maher'' in the Arabic version of Mazinger Z that was translated after Grendizer's success in the Middle East.
** And in Spain he was called [[AlliterativeName Carlos Caribe]] in the Grendizer dub, despite of he was not renamed in the Mazinger Z dub.
* GeniusDitz: Unlike many similar hot-heads, Koji ''is'' actually exceptionally bright when he allows himself to think things through. This is demonstrated both in the Mazinger Z series, when at least twice he had to completely disable mechanical beasts with hostages inside (one of them being Sayaka's [[IllGirl disabled]] cousin, Yuri); and in the ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' series, where he builds his flying saucer all by himself and later develops the Cyclone Beam. He is also an excellent shot (demonstrated in the Mazinkaiser VS Ankoku Dai Shogun movie when he shoots Archduke Gorgon in both his tiger head and human head with one shot).
** It should be noted, that Koji is sent to America in Anime/GreatMazinger to study, so he can become a scientist since [[spoiler: Kenzo, Koji's father]] mentions that he has the scientist blood of Kabuto inside him. So, it’s pretty much hereditary.
* HamToHamCombat: In the Dynamic Heroes e-manga, Kouji fought the Great Marshall of Hell while riding Mazinger. It is noteworthy as it was, maybe, the first time in the history of the franchise Kouji and [[spoiler:Dr. Hell]] faced each other as both were riding giant robots. Too bad it was a CurbStompBattle.
* HeroicSacrifice: In Anime/CBCharaGoNagaiWorld, [[spoiler: Koji blowing up the Mazinger]]
* HotBlooded: Poster boy for this.
* HotbloodedSideburns: Their sideburns are unmistakable.
* IdiotHero
* IndyPloy: He is able to think strategically and plotting strategies beforehand. However, given his rash, hotheaded nature, he is VERY prone to impulsively rush/leap/dive headfirst into a dangerous situation and figuring out along the way how he will walk out of it alive. These [[http://www.mangago.com/r/l_manga/manga/mazinger_z_relic_of_terror/mf/manga/mazinger_z_relic_of_terror/c000/26/ two]] [[http://www.mangago.com/r/l_manga/manga/mazinger_z_relic_of_terror/mf/manga/mazinger_z_relic_of_terror/c000/27/ pages]] of the "Mazinger Z: Relic of Terror" one-shot are a godd example:
-->'''Kouji:''' There's no choice but for me to go and take it back!
-->'''Sayaka:''' But you don't even know what the enemy is...!
-->'''Kouji:''' I'll find out along the way!
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Despite the fact that he is kind of an IdiotHero at time he is as much as a genius as his father and grandfather. [[spoiler:He is also as bad as his father when it comes to ParentalAbandonment. At least in Anime/GreatMazinger.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* TheLancer: To Tetsuya Tsurugi.
* LargeHam
* ManlyTears: He has three VERY memorable tears moments. One is in the beginning, when his grandfather dies in his arms. The other two are in the "Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}} vs. the General of Darkness", [[spoiler: with Dr. Morimori's HeroicSacrifice, and when he finally defeats ALL the Mikene Empire and tearfully screams "My dead friends... I AVENGED YOU ALL!"]]
* MeaningfulName: Kabuto means "Helmet", and Kouji pilots his machine by attaching the Jet Pilder to its head.
* MissingMom: [[spoiler:Tsubasa Nishikori]]
** In episode 90, Dr. Hell fabricated a cyborg looked exactly like her and sent it to the Institute in order to wreak havoc while he made preparations for the final battle. Naturally, that stratagem caused much grief, especially to Shiro.
* NoIndoorVoice: Indoor Voice? What is that “Indoor Voice” stuff you speak of?
* TheRival: With Boss and Tetsuya.
* TroubledButCute
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Boss.

!!Shiro Kabuto
!!!Voice Actor: Kazuko Sawada
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kabuto_Shiro_9865.jpg]]

Shiro is Kouji's younger brother. He is hard-headed, hot-tempered, enthusiastic and nosy. Most of the time, Shiro's role is to add some comic relief to the plot, being the voice of reason when Kouji is doing something dumb or dangerous, and often getting in trouble himself. He remains in Japan when Kouji departs at the beginning of ‘’Anime/GreatMazinger’’, and even he gets given his own HumongousMecha, Junior.

His character acquires a bit more depth in Great Mazinger, as he becomes acquainted with his father Kenzo, who was previously thought to be dead. Toward the end of the series, Shiro finally bonds with Kenzo, [[spoiler: who died shortly thereafter]].



* ActionGirl: She was one of the first female characters in the genre to regularly take an active role in battles and conflicts, rather than be relegated to the sidelines once fighting began or offering non-combat support.
* BattleCouple: With Kouji.
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Kouji.
* BikerBabe
* TheBusCameBack: She and Kouji went to America after the end of the original series, and they were not seen again until the end of Great Mazinger.
* DubNameChange: Jessica Davis in Tranzor Z

* MouthyKid
* PluckyComicRelief
* SmarterThanYouLook: During his first few appearances, his acts make him looking like TooDumbToLive (for starters, while Koji is horrified by the Iron Mask, especially after killing it, all he says is that Koji is so cool for killing the Iron Mask). Later on in the series, he learned to pilot the Pilder in relatively short time ([[FallingIntoTheCockpit bonus points since unlike Koji, he has practically zero experience in piloting the Pilder,]] while Koji mentions that the control is similar to his motorbike) and pulls a BigDamnHeroes several times, that really says something.
