* SignatureStyle: The art in the original manga is pretty much a carbon copy of Creator/GoNagai's early work, which is probably a major contributing factor to the frequent confusion over authorship. However, as time went on, Ishikawa broke away from this mold and developed his own unmistakeable blend of hyperkinetic, highly stylized and most importantly HotBlooded visuals and BloodKnight SociopathicHero characters who were somehow even more cheerfully psychotic than any his old colleague had come up with. The best way to describe it is probably ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' [[JustForFun/XMeetsY meets]] ''Creator/JackKirby''.

*** Despite this, the Perfect Change series of models [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pb0BGo8IiKg take a pretty good stab]] at making the patently ridiculous transformations work.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The ''Starvengers'' adaptation had a bit of this. In the early episode the MonsterOfTheWeek robots were called Mecha-Demons. In the last couple episodes, by which censors were presumably not watching anymore, they were called Mecha-Satans. In a kids cartoon in early 80's America.

* {{Badass}}: ''Literally'' a requirement for piloting a Getter Robo - the recruitment process is ridiculously dangerous and demanding to ensure this, and non-badasses have been shown to get severely injured or even die from just the stress of trying to pilot the insanely fast machines. Even then however, almost all of the non-Getter pilots in the series seem to be total badasses as well.



* DifficultButAwesome: In many, many incidents and discussions in-story, the Getter Machines are said to be incredibly good and have amazing performance, but they are so demanding that only the toughest or most {{badass}} of pilots can even withstand the immense G-Forces involved when piloting them. In fact, one of the test pilots of the Neo Getter actually failed to initiate the combination sequence because he could not endure the stresses on his body! Despite this "flaw", the Getter machines are indeed ferociously powerful and effective when piloted by the extremely tough and/or {{badass}} protagonists.
