Later, Sam, still having an unknown phlebotinum attached to him at the wrist, tries to call a girl he recently met, only to be interrupted when a Megavirus Monster attacks the phone company, disrupting every telephone on the planet. Dejected, he notices strange activity on his computer in the form of a model called the Servo Program. While he checks it out, yet another power surge hits, this time drawing him into {{Cyberspace}}. He takes the form of Servo, and is forced to fight the Megavirus, which he has been transported to. Later, the rest of the band, Syd, Tanker, and Amp, later replaced by Lucky, assist using 'helper programs', taking the form of various 'samurized attack vehicles' that can fight the Megavirus independently, join together into a single robot, called Xenon, or able to combine with Servo to from Synchro. Later, they gain another set of vehicles, able to transform into Drago, and to combine with Servo to form Phormo.

* BigDamnVillains: In one episode where Servo was BrainwashedAndCrazy and actually began working with the virus, the rest of the Squad came in to stop him with Xenon. Xenon was winning against both Servo and the virus until Kilokahn intervened, using his powers to banish the rest of the Squad from Syberspace.

* {{Expy}}: Servo and Xenon bear a striking resemblance to Series/{{Ultraman}} and [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Optimus Prime]] respectively. This is not a coincidence, since the original Japanese series (''Gridman'') was a co-production between Tsuburaya and Takara.

* PaperThinDisguise: The episode "The Taunt Heard Round the World" featured a news anchor interviewing people on the street about their opinion on what was going on. Each "interviewee" though, was actually the news van driver in an absurdly thin disguise, including GrouchoGlasses for one. When called out he explained it was because they couldn't find anyone to interview.

* ProductPlacement: Did ''COMPAQ'' hope this show would help drum up business? Possibly not, as in one of the early episodes Sydney remarks Sam's computer was a piece of crap until becoming Servo somehow turned it into a supercomputer.
** Younger tropers might not remember, but around the time this show was being made, Compaq were as ubiquitous as Dell are in 2013, and offered similar bulk discounts for corporate and public-sector clients. Chances are the producers simply phoned up someone in the IT office and asked them if they could borrow a few [=PCs=] for props, and Compaq-branded kit was all they had on hand.

supercomputer. And that's not even going to the point that at one point in the show, even the laptops are made by Compaq.

* GenderScoff: After obtaining a small victory against Sam Collins in "Samurize", Malcolm subverts the usual frase by saying "can't throw them at a nuclear reactor" instead of "can't live without 'em".

Yet another in the wake of post-''Franchise/PowerRangers'' superhero shows adapted from Japanese ''tokusatsu'' series. Adapted from ''Series/DenkouChoujinGridman'' ("Electric Superhuman Gridman"), '''''Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad''''' (yes, that is [[XtremeKoolLetterz "Syber" with an "S"]]) tells the story of Sam Collins, a high school student, guitarist and video game programmer who, after being hit by a power surge through his guitar, briefly vanishes, only to reappear with a wrist-mounted doohickey!

* MagicalComputer: This is the only explanation for some of the things Malcolm's able to do by infecting a computer with one of his viruses, like turning water into acid by infecting a computer at the water treatment plant, or how some of the viruses are able to get into sytems with nothing computerized to infect, like a wind-up alarm clock or cooking timer.
