* OutsideContextVillain: The demons from 30-33. No previous references to them, no long-term effects on the plot, they're just there to give the Jetmen someone else to fight besides the Vyram for a few episodes.

* StrangeSalute: Firstly, during every pose sequence Red Hawk would do a high kick and clap his hands under his thigh for... some reason. Then there's the two-fingered salute he gave while utilizing the mecha (which makes more sense, as it's a military-like salute and he was the only military officer on the team).

* {{Novelization}}: The ''Jetman'' novels by Toshiki Inoue, which were published a few years after the TV series ended, managed to be {{darker and edgier}} than the show itself. The giant mechs and Dimensional Monsters were eliminated completely in favor of having the Jetmen fight human test subjects that were subjected to Vyram's experiments. Empress Juza also has a bigger role than in the TV series.

* OneWingedAngel: Radiguet has a monstrous form he assumes, "Radigan", whenever he gets pissed. [[spoiler:But that's nothing compared to his giant monster form, which he uses in the final few episodes. This form has his "Radigan" head in the torso, which turns into his normal head when he speaks. During the final battle in episode 51, he merges with the Vylock base, which gives him extra armor to cover his back wound, only for Jet Garuda to punch it off and destroy it. This exposes the wound and ultimately leads to his defeat.]]
