* AliensAreBastards: 90% of the show's aliens all just want to invade or destroy Earth. Even aliens like the Pedans who play the HumansAreTheRealMonsters card end up revealing that they would rather destroy humanity instead of finding a peaceful solution.

* BittersweetEnding: Series-wise: Pandon and the Ghos aliens are annihilated, yet Seven is weak and is forced to fly home. Meanwhile, all those cities were blown up. Dan's teammates are not sure Seven will survive the trip, they're not even sure Seven ''is'' Dan. And Dan DidNotGetTheGirl.

The show received an American dub, a co-production of Turner Program Services[[note]]the syndication arm of Turner Broadcasting, which also distributed ''Series/{{Starcade}}'', ''Series/TheWonderYears'' and (post-1991) Creator/HannaBarbera series; it was eventually absorbed into [[Creator/{{Lorimar}} Telepictures Distribution]] in 1996 and in turn into Creator/WarnerBros Television Distribution in 2003[[/note]] and Creator/{{Cinar}} in 1985; however, for various reasons, the episodes weren't shown until the mid-90s, when Creator/{{TNT}} dusted them off.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Agira and Mikuras weren't mentioned in the show after their final appearances. In Agira's case, Dan never called him back in Episode 46. All Capsule Monsters would show up again in other continuities.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Agira Episode 17 features a literal example of this trope. In the beginning a miner named Jiro, who is identical to lead character Dan Moroboshi [[spoiler:because Ultra Seven saved Jiro's life and based his human appearance on him after the latter nearly died performing a similarly selfless act]], runs back to save a miner's pet mouse from death during a mysterious cave-in. Both are trapped in the mine, and the plot of the episode centers on the Ultra Garrison attempting to free him. Throughout the episode Jiro talks to the mouse (named Lucky) for comfort and yet when Ultra Seven rescues Jiro towards the end of the episode ... we never see what happens to the mouse. Ultra Seven didn't even know it existed, so in all likelihood it was just left to die in the mine [[spoiler: or killed in the explosion that follows]]. Which means that not only does the audience (many of whom would have been children) never receive any resolution to that character arc, but for all we know the entire point of Jiro becoming trapped in the mine, and thus the entire point of the episode's plot, has been negated.

'''''Ultra Seven''''', the third entry in the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'', is more serious, had very sophisticated writing and plotting, and its style is purely Science Fiction, as opposed to its kid-friendlier predecessor. Ultra Seven is an iconic character, in fact so successful that he (and actor Kouji Moritsugu, who played Dan Moroboshi) has appeared in many subsequent shows and movies, even starring in ''Series/UltramanLeo'' seven (no pun intended) years later. Decades later, Seven receives a SpinOffspring, ''Franchise/UltramanZero''.

* {{Badass}}: Seven, just Seven. Both Leo and Zero got their badassery from him.

* GenreSavvy: Nearly all aliens initially go for either Dan or the Ultra Eye, sometimes both (like the Salome aliens, who built Robot Seven).
