* SpacePirates: Although in the original Japanese it's more of a "Space Mafia", which decribes better the organization.
** In the Swedish dub they are literally called the [[NinjapirateZombieRobot "Pirate Mafia".]] So does that mean they scam you out of your money, after they've plundered you?

* SuperStrength: In the manga, Cobra was imprisoned along with a HeavyWorlder native from Jupiter. The Jovian tried to bend the bars of the prison but he wasn't strong enough. Cue Cobra... not only did he bend the bars with ease but he actually ripped apart the cell bars with little effort.

Here you have it -- ''Space Adventure Cobra''. A SpaceOpera manga by Buichi Terasawa published between 1978 and 1984, and later adapted to anime format and feature-length film.

Two anime adaptations were made, both closely watched by author of the original manga and preserving both plot and style of the original. What is even more awesome, in a recent remake titled ''Cobra the Animation'' they even recruited the same voice actors in Japan for both Cobra and Lady Armaroid. Preserving the character design helped a lot too.

* CriticalResearchFailure: Someone must have forgotten their grade school lessons in making the series. When Cobra tries to combine the tattoos of the Royal sisters it turns up as a black blotch. So he tries again this time by time illuminating each of the tattoos with one of the 3 primary colours - red, blue and GREEN!!! Er...green isn't a primary colour, yellow and blue make green. After that he's in a fight with the Guild pirate Sandra, who's using a powerful lightning gun against him. How does Cobra defend himself? He rips out a bunch of iron bars and hurls them directly into the lightning bolts, because IRON ABSORBS ELECTRICITY! Sorry Cobra, it doesn't...
