* ActingForTwo: A lot of the voice actors do several roles, as necessitated by the sheer number of Neros combatants. Akira Senoo also plays both Ryuusei and Tatsuo, for obvious reasons.

In 1945, at the end of WorldWarII, Professor Ryūichirō Kōga was forced into creating a super weapon for the Japanese Imperial Army. Patterning his creation to resemble his dead son Tatsuo, Professor Kōga placed his cyborg into suspended animation because of his pacifist leanings against war.

* BerserkButton: When Ryūsei gets angry, he can transform himself as Metalder.HonorBeforeReason: There's a wide variety of personalities in the Neros Empire legions, and a few are like this. A number of Metalder's battles thus resemble ''duels'' more than they do battles.

* TransformationSequence: Metalder's is instantaneous. He cannot transform back into Ryuusei on his own, however, requiring the maintenance equipment at Silver Carcass to do so.

** The story behind Topgunder was that they he was drawn up as a Armor Legion member first (a dude in a suit, not a robot), but the director saw the design and thought "Hey, he looks like a Rival"... He was consequently re-characterized as a Hakaider-esque member of the Combat Robot Legion. * AFatherToHisMen: It's pretty clear that Balsky and Coolgin have earned their subordinates' respect this way.

* GlassCannon: Metalder's armor is unusually fragile for a MetalHero, and he's ended up with internal damage after fighting in that form.

* LaserBlade: Averted, which is impressive for a Metal Hero show. Metalder's Laser Arm is his most powerful attack - and not only is it not a sword, it's not a ''laser'' either, as it's a high-frequency vibration of his arm that happens to look like one.

(His name is itself a shout-out to [[TopGun the movie]], apparently because the main writer's daughter was a fan of it.)

* SuperSenses: Ryuusei's sight and hearing are far above what a normal human could even be capable of, and seem to be boosted as Metalder. His olfactory sense is relatively normal, though he can still pick up a wider range (like explosives). * SupervillainLair: The Ghost Bank, which is located in the basement of the Kirihara Konzern's main headquarters.

* AIIsACrapshoot: Part of the problem with the Neros Empire legion members all having different personalities is, their loyalty to God Neros varies considerably - and he's forced to realize this when Topgunder takes off on his own. * ArmiesAreEvil: Neros Empire's many sub-legions.

* BareFistedMonk: Unusually for a Metal Hero, Metalder has no weapons (aside from a sword Tatsuo owned) and must rely solely on physical attacks. In a subversion, he ''is'' quick to pick up his opponent's weapons, or use something nearby.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Mukimukiman and Fufuchu disappear from the rest of the series after #8. Given that they were a pair of goofy wrestlers in an army of cyborgs, mutants and armored warriors made them stick out like a sore thumb, which is part of the reason why they were quietly removed from the show. * CurbstompBattle: Coolgin managed to defeat Metalder with a single slash in their first battle.

* CutShort: Was planned to be a 52 episode series, but ended at 39. It was ''supposed'' to end at 37, but the successor show wasn't ready yet. The show thus has a rather spectacular amount of WhatCouldHaveBeen, including [[spoiler: [[TheManBehindTheMan someone or something pulling Neros' strings]], a grievously wounded Topgunder getting a MercyKill from Metalder, and Metalder and Springer actually ''dying'' with the exploding Ghost Bank.]] * DarkerAndEdgier: One of the reasons the show was cut short was because younger fans were not fond of the rather dark and depressing tone of the series, series (or able to follow the drama-over-action writing), even for the franchise.
