''Chōjinki Metalder'' ("Supermandroid Metalder") is the sixth entry in Toei's ''Franchise/MetalHeroes'' franchise, which aired in 1987 (lasting 39 episodes and a movie). Essentially a SpiritualSuccessor to ''Series/{{Kikaider}}''.

* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: What training in martial arts does for Metalder, who is unusual amongst MetalHeroes as having zero combat skill at the start of the show. (Whether Prof. Koga just erased his pre-existing skill or never programmed him with any in the first place isn't clear.)

* 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 (or able to follow the drama-over-action writing), even for the franchise; the show is easily the darkest ''Franchise/MetalHeroes'' entry. (It picked up [[PeripheryDemographic older viewers]] well enough.)

** Balsky notes that Topgunder was built and programmed to be a ColdSniper, "like Golgo13". (His name is itself a shout-out to [[TopGun the movie]], apparently because the main writer's daughter was a fan of it.)

* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Ryuusei was apparently programmed with knowledge of the world circa 1945... which doesn't do him much good in 1987. Being a robot though, he just visits a ''library''. (Mai initially thinks he's an alien, name-checking [[ETTheExtraterrestrial ET]] in the process.)

* TheCastShowoff: Ryuusei plays the sax because his actor can.



* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Mukimukiman and Fufuchu disappear from the rest of the series after #8. Part of the reason why they were quietly removed from the show was that they were a pair of goofy wrestlers in an army of cyborgs, mutants and armored warriors, and so stuck out like a sore thumb.
* CurbstompBattle: Coolgin managed to defeat Metalder with a single slash in their first battle. Fortunately, the damage was limited to a shoulder pad - it's visible in this page's image.

** The producer also worked on {{Kikaider}}, and apparently thought of it this way; the main writer apparently did not.

* MoralityChip: Prof. Koga had the good sense to give his overpowered war machine a "(Self-) Reflection Circuit" (''Jisei-kairo'') - and unlike {{Kikaider}}, Metalder's is fully functional.

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