* {{Foreshadowing}}: Josh arrives in town, and promptly woos Drew's crush, and is generally well liked by everyone except Drew; at the same time an evil counterpart to the Beetleborgs appears & beats them at every opportunity. ''I wonder how they're going to get out of this...''

(Unlike most monsters in the series, Swamp Scumoid didn't come from the source footage of ''Series/JuukouBFighter''; its suit was later used for the gigantic title character of the movie ''Film/KraaTheSeaMonster''.)

Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsNotAToy: Vexor raided the home of the creator of the Beetleborgs and himself, Art Fortune, looking for a new minion powerful enough to defeat them. He finds a drawing of an unknown character named Nukus, who Art warns against bringing to life. Nukus was actually created by Art's brother Les, and is a much more sinister evil than Vexor, who Art created to be more harmless. Nukus proves to be the downfall of Vexor, and the BigBad of the next season.


Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: When Nukus shows up the threat level increases tenfold. Vexor was a rather forgettable villain in general, Nukus swiftly [[BatmanGambit manipulates the situation so that he had no challenger]]. Even still anyone who does fight him ends up on the bad end of a CurbStompBattle.


Added DiffLines:

* MidSeasonUpgrade: The Metallix armor in the second season. Technically not mid-season, but done for similar reasons.


Added DiffLines:

* NoEnding: The Metallix season ends with the heroes in charge of BOTH HumongousMecha and holding effectively all the powerups and {{MacGuffin}}s they were fighting over. Les Fortunes also quits working with Nukus. But, most notably, Nukus is never actually defeated.

''Beetleborgs'' was a live-action series produced by Creator/SabanEntertainment and aired on Creator/{{Fox}}. Called ''Big Bad Beetleborgs'' in the first season and changed to ''Beetleborgs Metallix'' in the second. A ''Franchise/PowerRangers''-like {{Sentai}} show, it incorporated footage from a Japanese show (in this case, the ''Franchise/MetalHeroes'' shows, ''Series/JuukouBFighter'' and ''Series/BFighterKabuto'') with new footage created in the United States. The show lasted from September 1996 to March 1998.

* StockFootageFailure: It's very noticeable in the first season, due to the fact that the Sonic Lasers would change color during the same fight in certain episodes. The US prop was a red/purple color scheme, like the US toys (which were changed for safety reasons). While in the ''B-Fighter'' footage, the gun props were silver and black, like a real fire arm (with the exception of the big blue keypad on the side). The Data Lasers were less noticeable due to the US props not being changed from the silver-and-black scheme. They were changed for the toy again, this time colored white and blue.
