** A double example happens earlier in the story, in the first timeline where Kouji becomes Mazinger Z's pilot. Throughout many battles between Mazinger Z and Dr. Hell's Mechanical Beasts, Juzo actually began to develop genuine love for his grandson, abandoned his ambitions of world domination, and decided to put an end to Dr. Hell for good... Then Dr. Hell sends out two of his strongest Mechanical Beasts, which proceed to kill Sayaka, force Mazinger Z to self-destruct, and survive the resulting explosion completely unscathed. Fortunately, Kouji survived thanks to the Pilder ejecting, and was taken away by his NotQuiteDead father Kenzo, Tetsuya, and Jun, to a secret location. Kenzo explains that he's been secretly building [[Anime/GreatMazinger a Mazinger that surpasses Z]], and Kouji is about to board it and destroy Dr. Hell once and for all... [[ShaggyDogStory Then the timeline was reset by]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Minerva X]].

** Both Juzo and Dr. Hell are found of this as well.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: The manga contains ''metric tons'' first cycle where Dr. Hell successfully creates Mechanical Beasts is ''full of meta references these''. Since Dr. Hell does not want to conquer the world without defeating Mazinger Z first and promises to leave the rest of the world alone if he's allowed to fight Mazinger Z, the United Nations, powerless to stop Hell, drafted a law that limits the area of combat to the original Anime/MazingerZ anime. For example, outskirts of Mount Fuji. Under this law, Mazinger Z and Dr. Hell's Mechanical Beasts fight every Sunday at 7pm, which is broadcast live across the globe. Because of this, Mazinger Z surged in popularity, leading to the creation of toys, mangas, and other merchandise featuring Mazinger Z and even the Mechanical Beasts... That's right, '''[[RecursiveCanon the Mazinger Z franchise exists in-universe]]'''!
** This is also the first cycle where
Kouji becoming becomes the pilot of the Mazinger inZ, referencing how Mazinger Z was the first human-piloted HumongousMecha in anime history.

* TakeOverTheWorld: Deconstructed. Dr. Hell wants to take over the world, but he has no interest in ''ruling'' the world. [[spoiler: Therefore, he simply [[OmnicidalManiac slaughters everyone who surrenders to him or was captured by him]] or [[NightOfTheLivingMooks turn them into mindless cyborg soldiers]]. The result is just as horrific as it sounds: '''five billion dead in ten days'''.]]
** According to Ashura, when Dr. Hell said "world", he didn't mean Earth, he meant ''the entire universe''.
