* SureWhyNot: Space Chief apparently never bothered to come up with a superhero name, so when the kids just randomly call him that he rolls with it.

** StockFootageFailure: Infamous for using footage from UsefulNotes/WorldWarII in what is supposed to be a kid's movie. Including the Hitler Building.

** In fact, this is probably the only movie in existence where the big, epic, action-packed climax is even more boring and tedious than the stuff preceding it.

A 1961 sci-fi flick (''Uchū Kaisokusen'', or "The High-speed Spaceship", in the original Japanese) famous for its appearance by a young Creator/SonnyChiba. What little plot there is concerns a gang of nameless Japanese children wandering around town and running into an invasion by the titular torpedo-headed Neptune men, some sort of "[[DeflectorShields electro-barrier]]", and Space [[strike:Chef]] [[strike:Late]] Chief (''Iron-Sharp'' in the original), a superhero and "ineffectual chicken-headed bachelor" dedicated to fighting the Neptunian menace. Aside from that, it's pretty much ''PrinceOfSpace'' with added World War II stock footage (featuring a delightful cameo by Adolf Hitler) but without [[SoBadItsGood the charm of the Chicken Men of Krankor]].

* NonindicativeName: Space Chief is never seen to go into space. He's more like Lower Atmosphere Chief, really. Or Barely-Off-The-Stupid-Ground-Chief. Of course, those idiot kids gave him t"he name, so it's hardly his fault.
** In the original Japanese release he was known as "Ironsharp," apparently. This isn't really any better than Space Chief, since neither his ship or his superhero costume imply sharpness, with the possibly exception of his tablesaw helmet.

* GratuitousNazis: The infamous "Hitler Building," a stock footage building featuring a gigantic mural of AdolfHitler. It appears for a split second before getting blown up, and is never mentioned again.

* TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse: The aliens don't bother attacking anywhere else even though the only notable defense they face is a stationary shield.

* AlienInvasion: A particularly slow, lumbering invasion with endlessly looped stock footage. They try to spice things up by disguising the aliens as a brigade of transvestite soldiers, but it's still one of the least exciting struggles for mankind's future ever filmed.
