* '''Exaggerated''': The Egregious-Genenocider-Knuckle is so powerful that it thrusts the MonsterOfTheWeek all the way up to the moon and returns back to Troperion just in time to [[VictoryPose strike the dramatic pose.]] (see: GenesisOfAquarion)
** Alternatively, the Troperion can fire off either fist, either foot, its head, and each intact limb, making it little more than a walking missile launcher, just like its parody.

* '''Parodied''': Troperion can actually use most of its parts in this fashion, including [[BreadEggsMilkSquick its feet, knees, shoulders, belly, head, crotch]] [[FastballSpecial and even its pilot!]]
** Alternatively: Troperion's Rocket Punch divides in mid-flight into dozens of little hands that trickle the opponent into submission before reassembling into a fly-swatter like contraption that pounds it into the ground before reassembling to give it the finger.
** Alternatively: Troperion's arm is broken off, and he throws it at his opponent with his other arm. (see: {{Dai-Guard}}, ShinMazinger)
** Alternatively: When its pilot is especially irate, Troperion [[FlippingTheBird doesn't always fire off its whole hand.]]

* '''Deconstructed''': It turns out Troperion is just a test-bed for the development of more efficient and conventional super-weapons, with the Rocket-Punch system being the prototype for a new class of impact-missile capable of being used multiple times.
** The fist projectile and all the electronics within are extremely expensive to replace, so Troperion's pilot burns through truckloads of money with every launch. ''Any'' amount of overuse would result in bankruptcy, so the weapon is restricted to emergency use.
* '''Reconstructed''': ...However, the weapon proves to be extremely effective under the control of its [[HotBlood hot-blooded]] test pilot, so they decide to deploy Troperion as a full time unit.
** Turns out that rocket punches are a lot more useful if you use a cord to retrive them after every launch...



* '''Lampshaded''': "Is the missile-arm thingy absolutely necessary?" [[LargeHam "OF COURSE IT IS! What kind of weapon of justice would it be without one?!"]]
* '''Invoked''': The R&D chief turns to be a [[AscendedFanboy BIG fan of the Old School Super Robot shows]]. He / She has the technology AND wackiness, and nobody will stop him / her when from adding this weapon into Troperion.

* '''Subverted''': Out of weapons, our hero tries to use the maneuver against MonsterOfTheWeek... only to find it didn't did anything, except enraging it and now he's an arm shorter. [[CurseCutShort OH SH-]]
* '''Double Subverted''': Out of weapons, our hero tries to use the maneuver against MonsterOfTheWeek, which stops the punch effortlessly. "He he he... He just fell for it". Cue the click of a trigger and a gigantic explosion produced by the bomb hidden inside Troperion's arm.
** While the monster catches his punch, he fires Troperion's ''other'' arm while the monster is distracted with the first one and it works this time.
