Added DiffLines:

* MonsterMisogyny: Alien Buraco from "The Human Ranch" played with this trope, as it targeted both animals and women (and their chromosomes) to harvest the red spores from its body.
** Darii from "The Flower where Evil lies" targeted women.
** The Spehl aliens from "From Another Planet with Love" targeted young women for their blood, that is, until they realized children had even better blood for their purposes.

Added DiffLines:

* IWarnedYou: Dan tried to warn Soga and Furuhashi not to get any closer to a sighting of the Cool aliens, only for a local cop to ride past and get abducted himself.

** Seven flew with arms outstretched at about 30 degree angles, which gave him a crucified shape.

* DaylightHorror: Most alien threats take place during the day. The human incidents in "The Targeted Town", as well as Dan's encounter with Alien Metron and their earlier threat to him (he was run off the road by a "driver-less" truck), nearly all took place in broad daylight. (Soga and Furuhashi had their freakout incidents indoors, so it's hard to tell when they happened.)

(Soga and Furuhashi had their freakout incidents indoors, so it's hard to tell when they happened.)) The Guts aliens invoked this with their planned execution of Seven.



* DetachmentCombat: The individual vessels (Alpha, Beta, Gamma) that make up the Ultra Hawk 1 were each combat ready and could shoot bullets and missiles.



** One of the Godora aliens, disguised as a woman, shows up at the Ultra Garrison Boiler Room to watch the bomb in there go off. She tells Dan she's not afraid to die...

** One of the Godora aliens, disguised as a woman, shows up at the Ultra Garrison Boiler Room to watch the bomb in there go off. She tells Dan she's not afraid to die... much like a suicide bomber.



*** Robot Commander looks like Hitler.



* GenreRoulette: Among the genres thrown into the science fiction mix are police procedurals ("Space Prisoner 303"), horror ("Project Blue", "The Green Terror"), spy movies ("Stolen Time"), thrillers ("The Suspicious Neighbor"), melodrama ("The Brave One"), and war movies ("Glory for whom?").

* RecycledInSpace: ''{{Series/Ultraman}}'' meets ''Series/StarTrek'' ON EARTH!



* SixthRanger: Dan first showed up as a civilian [[AllAccordingToPlan that happened to run into Furuhashi, Soga, and an alien invasion.]] After suggesting a method to make the otherwise invisible Cool aliens visible and vulnerable to attack, he rode shotgun in one of the Ultra Hawks to deploy the Ultra Garrison's ImprovisedWeapon. The plane crash-landed and he called on Windam to attack the alien ships. When Windam was overwhelmed, he called him back, transformed, killed an alien, set the hostages free, went giant-sized, and took the alien ship into outer space to be blown up. Dan was then inducted as a full member of the Ultra Garrison.
** Captain Kurata in Episode 49, after his HeroicBSOD.
** Furuhashi's friend Ayako, in Episode 40.
* TheSoCalledCoward: According to Kurata, Dan failed to stop the Ghos aliens on first sight and ran away after his team was attacked. [[TheLastDance Dan had bigger fish to fry.]]
* {{Sizeshifter}}: From giant-sized (most of the time) to the size of a small insect, and sometimes even human-sized.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Pandon was originally called Bandon. Also, the anglicized names vary all over the place.
* SquashedFlat[=/=]PhantomZone: One episode had aliens do this to humans, not by literally squashing them, but by [[spoiler: taking their picture, somehow capturing their life essence on film, leaving the inert bodies behind]]



** "The Targeted Town" may have been inspired by an episode of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' called "The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street".

* DroneOfDread: One tune, called "Space Monster", features a droning bass drum and dissonant horns to great effect. A similar tune, minus the horn section and plus a faster tempo, was used sometimes.

* PowerDegeneration: Due to injuries from his previous battles, Seven became weaker by the time his superior appeared to order him to return home. Dan's vital signs were so far out of whack (pulse 360, blood pressure 400/?, temperature 90ºC) that he should have been dead if he'd been human.

Seven could barely stand, his Emerium beam wasn't strong enough, and he had poor control of his Eye Slugger, which thankfully he recovered in his second fight with Pandon.



** [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim Instead of quietly killing Dan]], the Guts Aliens figure they'll capture Seven, show him to the world for less than 24 hours, and assasssinate him just as the world looks on. They thought the people of Earth would surrender quickly after.
