*** During the duel between a Getter Robo Go spawned from Shin Dragon and the Shin Getter, Getter-1 Go rips off its faceplate and hurls it at Shin Getter-1 before pinning it to the ground. Its exposed face is revealed to have a ''mouth'' that it then proceeds to bite Shin Getter-1 in the neck with. This berserker manuver is rather remiscient of the Berserk EVA-01 scene from Evangelion, and is one of Getter-1 Go's attacks in the Super Robot Wars Z series.

** It also presents some pretty creative uses and reasons for combining and separating. Since all of the parts are modified fighter jets, separating at a moment's notice to dodge attacks or strike from other angles, and fighter jets are a hell of a lot easier to maintain and keep secret.

* AceCustom: Ryouma's infamous Black Getter from ''Armageddon'', which he custom built from the wreckage of a regular Getter Robo, mainly involving lots of black paint and spikes.
** Actually, the reason his Getter Robo is black is because the paint burned upon reentry into Earth's atmosphere. This makes it even more badass.

* EvolutionaryLevels: A major theme in the series, since Getter Rays are the actual power of evolution itself. They're used, variously, as a metaphor for progress, survival/life, and certain Buddhist/eastern ideals which Ishikawa was fond of. An extreme example of this trope in action occurs when they terraform Mars into the new Earth-- within an instant.

* '''Getter Robo''': The original TV series, wherein the primary antagonists are the Dinosaur Empire, the remnants of the dinosaurs who escaped extinction by hiding deep below the Earth's surface. When they attack the Saotome Laboratory, home of Getter Robo, Professor Saotome enlists the aid of three of his daughter Michiru's classmates to help fight off the invasion. The team consists of Ryoma Nagare, a hot-blooded soccer star; Hayato Jin, a quiet, handsome loner; and Musashi Tomoe, a portly martial artist friend of Ryoma's whose cowardice hides a heart of gold. The series details the team's battles with the Dinosaur Empire, culminating in Musashi making a HeroicSacrifice to finish the enemy off. This series is considerably much more LighterAndSofter than the manga, with an atmosphere and MonsterOfThwWeek format more similar to MazingerZ.
