The series is, at its core, an affectionate tribute to the {{Toku}} series of the seventies, in particular ''Franchise/KamenRider'' and ''{{Kikaider}}''.

** Sadly, it looks like for much of one chapter for book 27, Agito recounts the history of mankind's creation...FOR THE THIRD OR FOURTH TIME IN THE MANGA!

** Natsuki too. Who would have a thought getting an ImportantHaircut could change a background character so much?

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Some fans are worried about Takaya has gotten sick enough to suspend Guyver for over a month.



* ExecutiveMeddling: According to an interview with Steve Wang, the director of the first live action film ([[AscendedFanboy and a fan of the original anime and manga]]), the film's producer Brian Yuzna wanted to make a [[CompletelyMissingThePoint kids film]] out of the licence while Wang wanted to keep the original tone of the series. This ended up resulting with the two having big fights over the film's direction and Wang getting zero creative control at all.
** If that isn't bad enough, the DVD was released as a DirectorsCut, which added a few scenes and transitions.... And cut all the violence out. By the way, Wang had nothing to do with it despite the cut labeled as such. It was Yuzna who commissioned it.
** That said: given ValuesDissonance between America and Japan, and the premise being ''much'' more suited to a {{Toku}} project than a serious BodyHorror film, [[FridgeBrilliance Yuzna may have actually been thinking fairly straight.]]



* GodCreatedCanonForeigner:
** Inspector Valkyria, originally created by the author for the first one-shot animated movie to replace Oswald Lisker in the role of Guyver 2, has recently made her debut in the manga as [[spoiler:what else but a new Guyver identical to her anime appearance]].
** Takaya has also canonized the aquatic Hyper-Zoanoid Synevite, and even the Powered Zerebuth.



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Both ''Out of Control'' and the OVA are out of print (the latter because MangaEntertainment lost the rights for the series to Creator/ADVFilms). Luckily, both can be found online and on YouTube (for now, at least).
** The original USRenditions tapes of the OVA, which included an uncut English dub of episode 12, are also out of print.
** The Creator/VizMedia and StarComics English translations of the manga. Unless the other Volumes are translated anytime soon, good luck finding those anywhere (Don't get too worried about the manga however, There are plenty fan translations around).
** The unedited version of the first live action film from it's release on VHS. Why? As mentioned under ExecutiveMeddling, the DVD cut all the violence out of the film.



** Book 26 [[spoiler: The appearance of another Guyver and a Zoalord getting completely curbstomped by Apollyon]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In the second live action Guyver film, the Ancients' spaceship plays a key role. They were ''thiiiiis'' close to setting up Guyver Gigantic.
** While on the subject of the live action Guyver films, imagine WhatCouldHaveBeen with the first film had Steve Wang been allowed to make the movie he wanted to make.....
*** [[https://twitter.com/DavidBHayter/status/172816481204183040 David Hayter]] had pitched an outline for a third live action Guyver movie after the success of ''Dark Hero'' on the home video circuit. But the rights had reverted to the original owners in Japan.

Added DiffLines:

** The worst part for the Creators is that the bio-booster itself is not necessarily designed or meant for combat, being more of an all purpose spacesuit. Humans are just ''that'' good at killing that bonding one with it creates an unstoppable death machine.

* CoolShip: The Ark, okay we know it flies and can shoot beams of life energy, and sounds like it can go across the Universe but that's it..But damn does it look cool! Also the Relic.

to:

* CoolShip: The Ark, okay we know it flies Ark... more than twice as long as Manhattan, contains a complete self-sustaining, solar-powered ecosystem capable of supporting millions of people, can hover without obvious means of propulsion, is spaceworthy, has bio-energy cannons three miles long, and, oh yeah... it's 100% organic and can shoot beams of life energy, and sounds like it can go across the Universe but that's it..But damn does it look cool! in fact ''alive''. Also the Relic.Relic (from which the Ark was actually grown).
