Added DiffLines:

* UnwantedAssistance: Several times Kouji complained to Sayaka that she was getting in the way, hindering him and doing more harm than good. And even if he had a point, he wasn't exactly diplomatic about it... It was hilariously GenderFlipped with Jun and Boss later. Jun would be fighting, and Boss got in the way constantly in order to "help".

Added DiffLines:

* UnwittingPawn: Dr. Hell was Archduke Gorgon's unwitting pawn. Gorgon helped Hell to fight Kouji Kabuto and his allies because the constant conflict weakened and wore the heroes down, and as soon as Hell stopped being useful, he abandoned him and let him die (or killed him personally in some versions) while his War Beasts finished Mazinger off.

Added DiffLines:

* ShowerScene: Several examples:
** During a manga story arc in which Kouji and the other main characters were trying to sneak in [[TheDragon Baron Ashura's]] submarine base, Ashura decided to have a shower. Since Baron Ashura is a half male, half female being, it was played for laughs and nightmare fuel.
** That scene was later animated in ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}''.
** In the beginning of the ''Mazinger-Z vs Great General of Darkness'' movie, Sayaka was taking a shower when Kouji walked in on her accidentally. Angrily, she slapped him.

Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfRobotIntelligence: The AIs in this series mainly cover the three first ranks:
** Most of HumongousMecha's AIs (such like Mazinger-Z, Aphrodite-A and most of {{Robeast}}s) were Bricks or Robo-Monkeys: they were only capable of understanding and executing orders. However some [[{{Robeast}} Mechanical Beasts]] displayed a greater intelligence, emotions or some kid of independant thought, and sometimes acted against orders (such like Spartan K5, Jenova M9, Deltan V8, Minerva-X...)
** On the other hand, humanoid robots always ranked as Average Joe Android: the Gamia sisters, [[spoiler:Erika, Lorelei...]] had human-level intelligence and behavioral patterns.

** Again in ''ShinMazinger'' Zeus shows up but he is way different of the myth -let's say his severed hand is used to build the God Scrander-, and Hades is again a flaming, humongous GodofEvil.

* VideoGame/SuperRobotWars: '''All''' of them. The only ones that may ''technically'' not count are the ones that do or will use the reimaginings: ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'', ''Anime/ShinMazinger'', or ''Anime/MazinkaiserSKL''. However, ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsUX UX]]'', in which the latter debuts, marks the first time Kouji himself has not appeared in a ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' game.
** In a number of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' games you can convince Minerva X to join your team. At least [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars2 2, 2G]], [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact Compact 1]], and [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Advance]], although in 2 she only joins temporarily and in Advance she 'dies' and you have to assign an actual pilot to the robot.

* StarcrossedLovers:
** Shiro and Lorelei. Lorelei was [[spoiler:a RobotGirl built by a scientist wanted to prove he was better than Dr. Kabuto, builder of Mazinger-Z. He built an HumongousMecha -Rhine X1-, and a RobotGirl -Lorelei- was meant to fuse with it to make it work. When her father got a fatal wound, he confessed the truth to her and pleaded her to defeat Mazinger. Determined to fullfil her father's last will, she merged with Rhine and challenged Mazinger to a death match. Kouji was forced to fight and kill her.]] Shiro was devastated after that.
** Minerva-X and Mazinger-Z itself also are an example. Minerva-X was a FemBot designed by Dr. Kabuto especifically to be Mazinger-Z's BattleCouple. Unlike Mazinger, though, she was a robot capable to think and feel emotions like an human being, and she was in love with Mazinger-Z. However, Dr. Kabuto never got around to build it. Unfortunately, Dr. Hell got his hands on the plans and built her to destroy Mazinger-Z. However, Minerva-X got rid from his control and refused fighting Mazinger-Z, so he decided to destroy her. Their condition of StarCrossedLovers not only comes from this but also it comes from Mazinger-Z IS a machine and it can not reciprocate her feelings.
