* BadassBiker
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: After hearing reports about ufo sightings, he wishes making the FirstContact with the aliens. Needless to say, It went very poorly.
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Maria.
* 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 ''UFO Robo Grendizer'' Creator/GoNagai manga, and the UFO Robot Grendizer tai Great Mazinger movie.
** And by Viscount Pygman in the series.
* ButtMonkey: He suffered of this in Grendizer quite often.
* 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 [[{{Trope Codifier}} the trademark]] of {{Super Robot}} 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}}
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Mazinger'' he was TheHero. In ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' he was TheLancer for a short while. In ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' he was the sidekick before becoming TheLancer again.
* 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 Gregg Berger in the dub.
** When ''Grendizer'' was shown in the United States as part of ''Force Five'', 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 ''Grendizer'' 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/{{Great Mazinger}} 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.
* 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, hot-headed 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!
* InterspeciesRomance: With Maria.
* IronicEcho: In the GosakuOta episodes, when he meets Duke, the later spends a good while glaring at his flying saucer. Kouji wonders: “Why is he looking at my saucer like if it killed his parents or something?”
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* TheLancer: To Daisuke.
* 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.
** Also, the word “Mazinger” is formed by kanji mean “god”, “devil” and “pilot”, meaning Mazinger may be a god saves the world or a devil destroys it depending on its pilot.
** According to Hindu Mythology, Ashura were beings with a dual nature.
* 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?
* PutOnABus: He and Sayaka went to America after the end of the series, and they were not seen again until the end of Great Mazinger.
* TheRival: With Boss usually – and Tetsuya in ''Anime/GreatMazinger''.
* {{Sidekick}}: To Duke Fleed/Daisuke Umon. Later graduated to TheLancer.
* TriangRelations: Type 3 with Sayaka and Maria, with Kouji being the ChasteHero in the middle.
* TroubledButCute
* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Grandfather]]: Straight after his grandfather’s death, Kouji swore he would get his murderers and he would take revenge.

Duke is kind of a mainstay in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' games, even though he –and Grendizer- has showed up fewer times than other characters of the trilogy. He's good friend with [[MachineRobo Rom Stoll]], provided they are both in the game. They have also featured in some {{Crossover}}s: Anime/CBCharaGoNagaiWorld, SuperRoboRetsuden, Go Nagai Heroes e-manga…

->'''Barados''': "There is no future for a planet without women or children!" (GoNagai Anime/UFORoboGrendizer manga)

Barados showed up in the Nagai's manga and in the Grendizer versus Great Mazinger movie. In the later he was merely a one-note character: another Vegan commander upstart who pompously proclaimed he would defeat Duke Fleed and seize or destroy Grendizer but ultimately failed. In the GoNagai manga he got a back-story where it was revealed he was the main responsible of the downfall of planet Fleed.

* {{Backstory}}: In the GoNagai Creator/GoNagai episodes.



He has two children, Hikaru and Goro. Unlike many father figures found in GoNagai mangas -who are abusive or at the best, neglectful-, he is overprotective to an annoying point. Especially with his daughter. He blatantly menaces with killing whoever comes near from her or does not take care well of her. And if he catches her whiling away with a boy –usually Duke- he assumes they are making something unseemly (and they are guilty until proved otherwise with him), and begins shouting… and shooting.
