* GrandFinale: At the end of the series, [[spoiler:the group has finally located Hell's base, and they head towards there, supported by the Japanese army (in the GoNagai manga, an army of Mass-Production Mazingers was produced; Hell's counterattack was sending a fleet of ''seventy'' Mechanical Beasts, a submarine and an aerial fortress to imvade and take over Japan in ten days). Mazinger, Aphrodite-A and Boss Borot duel against Hell's last Mechanical Beasts and start trashing his Base. Hell gets fed up and decides blowing his island up and fleeing on board of his aerial fortress. Mazinger goes after him and they engage in a last aerial duel. After winning, the heroes return to their HomeBase, believing they are safe at last, but DragonWithAnAgenda Archduke Gorgon sends two War Beasts behind them. Gorgon's {{Robeast}}s easily destroy the three HumongousMecha and raze the Institute to rubble, but before they could kill Kouji, another Robot shows up and easily annihilates the Beasts,]] hinting the sequel.

** A show of it was a {{Crossover}} featuring characters of ''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''Anime/GreatMazinger'', ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' and ''Manga/GetterRobo''. In that movie, the most famous GoNagai HumongousMecha battled an ugly, massive prehistoric animal that had survived in the depths of the oceans and had been mutated after feeding it with huge quantities of oil spills: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IRv4wLwJKo]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94gN4r0DWBc&list=UUnXJtqSkUnVWhD7fwCjuZag&index=7&feature=plcp]]

* ImpossiblyGracefulGiant: The SuperRobotGenre TropeMaker actually subverted this trope. When the series was animated, GoNagai reminded the cartoon-makers that Mazinger-Z was a huge, heavy machine, therefore it should look heavy. Hence, Mazinger walked apparently slowly, shaking the ground and making much noise with each footstep, and the robot was frequently seen from below to reinforce just how huge it was... GoNagai wanting Mazinger-Z to seem heavy was the reason of [[RazorWings Jet Scrander]] was a MidSeasonUpgrade. GoNagai intended for Mazinger-Z to be able to fly all along, but he feared if Mazinger flew from the beginning, the robot would seem lighter than it really was, so he only gave it wings when it was firmly established Mazinger was heavy.

* ItCanThink: In ''Mazinger-Z vs Great General of Darkness'', when Kouji faces ''[[Anime/GreatMazinger Mykene's]]'' [[{{Robeast}} War Beasts]] for first time, he -accostumed to the mindless, silent drones that Dr. Hell used- gets utterly shocked when they begin talking to him. Quickly learns that that is not the only difference with the Mechanical Beasts. They are intelligent, capable to think on their own, devise complex strategies, fight coordinatedly and even lay traps. Oh, and they are DangerouslyGenreSavvy, too (they dragged and dunked Mazinger in the ocean, knowing that his robot's mobility is crap underwater, unlike the aquatic Beast that was waiting for him).

* InTheBlood: Dr. Juuzo Kabuto was a brilliant scientist and builder of HumognousMecha. His son Kenzo was a brilliant scientist and builder of HumongousMecha. His elder grandson Kouji was a pilot of HumongousMecha and he was already designing and building ufos for the age of nineteen. And his younger grandson Shiro is also pretty smart for his age. Usually all members of Kabuto family combine high intelligence with CrazyAwesome.

** The Dynamic Heroes e-manga featured [[Anime/{{Mazinger Z}} Kouji, Sayaka]], [[Anime/{{Great Mazinger}} Tetsuya, Jun]], [[Anime/{{UFO Robo Grendizer}} Duke, Hikaru, Maria]], [[Manga/GetterRobo Ryoma, Hayato, Benkei]], [[{{Devilman}} Akira Fudo]] and [[Anime/CuteyHoney Honey Kisaragi]]. There was enough hot blood in that crossover to fill an ocean.

Added DiffLines:

* HeartbrokenBadass: Kouji was completely heartbroken and devastated when he saw Sayaka getting murdered in a Time Loop in ''Manga/ShinMazingerZero''.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Intangibility}}: Mykene War Beast Dante, which appeared in the "Mazinger-Z vs Great General of Darkness" movie, had that ability. When Kouji fought it, Mazinger's weapons went through its body harmlessly.

* IdiotHero: Kouji is the posterboy for the HotBlooded character... and has the HotBloddedSideburns to prove it.

Added DiffLines:

* IDontThinkThatsSuchAGoodIdea: When Kouji wants to get in Mazinger for first time, Shiro says that he doesn't think that trying to pilot a super-powerful war machine without previous training is a good idea. Kouji blew him off as being irritating, but Shiro was very, very right.

* GratuitousNinja: In episode 46 Dr. Hell decided changing his usual strategy and instead of two HumongousMecha he created two three-meters-tall ninja robots (the Blazas S1 and S2 "brothers") to carry a sabotaging mission off. They could perform complicated acrobatics, and threw shurikens -as well as missiles-. There was no apparent mission for them being ninjas other than ninjas are cool.

Added DiffLines:

* HighAltitudeBattle: As soon as Mazinger-Z got a flying upgrade -right in that same episode- Kouji got a high-altitude battle against a rocket-shaped, missile-shooting {{Robeast}}. It was the first of many.
** In another episode, the enemy tried to force Kouji to fight several dozens of feet above the ground so that Kouji's body and Mazinger's machinery were unable to endure the physical strain.
