* GilliganCut: Not really, but one so abruptly counter to the closing of the last scene, it may as well be. In The Gift From Space, the lead scientist asks the small airline operator to place the story's plot Macguffin somewhere safe. Without showing him putting it away or anyone casing the facility, in the next second it shows a thief using a blowtorch on the payroll safe. Naturally, he mistakes the plot device for gold he can steal and danger ensues.

[[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Unlike most of the franchise it would spawn]], it did not have a size-changing HenshinHero. Instead, it was more of a mystery-of-the-week format that gets it compared to ''Series/TheOuterLimits'' (even with an intro reminiscent of it!) with, of course, giant monsters being the culprit a lot more often than it was in those series.

* FollowTheLeader
** Considered by western fans to be this to ''Series/TheOuterLimits'' or ''Series/TheTwilightZone'', but a better comparison is found in ''Franchise/{{Quatermass}}''. Which makes it funnier that the English dub was made by the producers of ''The Twilight Zone'', and acquired by the producers of ''The Outer Limits''.
** Also, it was the popularity of the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' franchise that led to the monsters taking center stage and the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' that followed being all about heroes vs. monsters. Creator/EijiTsubaraya didn't want it to be this way at first, but was talked into including more monsters by ThePowersThatBe.
