* XMeetsY: ''Anime/MazingerZ'' meets ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''.
** Actually you can tell the first arc is ''original'' ''Anime/MazingerZ'' ''manga'' meets ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion]]''. TheHero's girlfriend is brutally murdered? Check. TheHero crosses the DespairEventHorizon when he sees her impaled corpse? Check. He activates an HumongousMecha / EldritchAbomination with a penchant for going berserker and biting its enemies, and he accidentally uses it to trigger TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt? Check. HumongousMecha ends up floating in space? Check. Pale-haired, non-human girl with powers beyond the human comprehension, who harbours strong feelings towards TheHero, and was designed by one of his relatives, gives him the chance to revert it? Check.
** Given that we are blending a UnbuiltTrope (the original manga was pretty dark) with a {{Deconstruction}} it is no wonder that that arc was a MindScrew.
** Also, ''Anime/MazingerZ'' meets [[spoiler:''Manga/AttackOnTitan'']].

* EmpathicWeapon: Near the end of ''Shin Mazinger Zero'', Mazinger Z is revealed to have a personality of its own, something not even Minerva X has seen before in her countless timeloops. This personality has a strong sense of justice, and refers to Koji as his friend. Unfortunately, that personality is overwhelmed by [[EldritchAbomination ZERO's]] when Mazinger Z's final black box is triggered.

* TheMole: The Gamia Q sisters infiltrated into Kouji's school to murder him.
** ReverseMole: Similar to the original series, Minerva X was designed as a partner for Mazinger Z by Juuzo Kabuto but the plans and materials were stolen by Dr. Hell. He built Minerva X believing she would work for him, but in reality she was always on the heroes' side and was only biding her time before defecting the first chance she got.

* AfterTheEnd: The manga ''starts'' this way.
* ApocalypseHow: DYNAMIC FIRE!

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Minerva X. Despite (or maybe ''[[MindScrew because]]'') she was created by humans, several of her personality traits - mainly her conception of what love is - are completely bizarre. Because she was created to be Mazinger's partner in battle, [[CargoShip she is in love with Mazinger]] in spite of she knows it is a machine and it is not sentient. She also treats the pilot of a HumongousMecha like if it was another part of the mecha (presumably, the brain). Thus, she teases Sayaka because she saw Aphrodite (Sayaka's FemBot) fighting alongside Mazinger and got jealous, got... [[TheImmodestOrgasm all bothered]] when she was inside Mazinger's cockpit, and she told her she loved Kouji... but she loved Kouji piloting the Hover Pilder even more, and above all she loved Kouji on the Pilder piloting Mazinger. [[http://www.mangareader.net/930-43892-28/shin-mazinger-zero/chapter-8.html Usually Kouji and Sayaka only shake their heads and accept her as she is]].
** Minerva's love makes some sense when you remember that she's [[spoiler: the reincarnation of the same Minerva from the anime that fell in love with that continuity's Mazinger]]. Of course she would love Kouji especially when he pilots Mazinger because [[spoiler: she's in love with it]] and without its pilot, Mazinger is practically lifeless.

** Ultimately subverted though, [[spoiler: as when Kouji tries to use Brocken's head as a bargaining chip, Hell stops attacking Mazinger Z at first, but then realizes that he can simply create [[ReplacementGoldfish even more bizarre minions]] (such as [[MythologyGag anime!Viscount Pygman and anime!Archduke Gorgon]]), and resumes his attack]].

* 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'''.]]

** A DoubleSubversion 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 sent two of his strongest Mechanical Beasts, which killed Sayaka, forced Mazinger Z to self-destruct, and survived 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 explained that he's been secretly building [[Anime/GreatMazinger a Mazinger that surpasses Z]], and Kouji was about to board it and destroy Dr. Hell once and for all... [[ShaggyDogStory Then the timeline was reset by]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Minerva X]].
