* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: Drives a majority of the action in this movie.

* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: Drives a majority of the action in this movie. Mostly seen when Shinichi finds out he needs to gain the power to fly or he'll lose the final battle, and tries to gain it by throwing himself off heights hoping if he believes in his need for it hard enough he'll get it.

A satire/homage of Japanese {{tokusatsu}} television, such as {{Kamen Rider}} or {{Super Sentai}}, this funny and touching movie follows Shinichi Ichikawa, a Japanese father and school teacher. Unappreciated by his family and colleagues, Ichikawa finds solace in daydreaming about his childhood television hero, Zebraman, and an OddFriendship with a young fan, Shinpei Asano. When mysterious sightings of monsters and aliens begin to spread panic in his neighborhood, Ichikawa begins developing supernatural talents of his own and defending the frightened citizens.

* ShoutOut: Kozue Aihara's Zebra Police have black masks with white lines meant to be a zebra head motif, but may also remind some of the [[KamenRider Shocker]] {{Mooks}}.

* StylisticSuck: The ''Zebraman'' remake ShowWithinAShow. Despite being an updated version, it deliberately zigzags the level of quality, from ropey makeup, an updated Zebraman outfit comparable to Heisei KamenRider, and obvious SFX.

* AnimalStereotypes: A zebra makes no more sense than [[{{Batman}} a bat]], if you think about it.

* TheVirus: The aliens are basically green goop that infects humans, although they can gain shape eventually.
* ZorroMark: Literally. Zebra starts with a Z, too, you know.
