* DecompositeCharacter: Kaitlin's clone and Red Python were the same person in Spielban. Since Diana Lady and Helen Lady both wore the same armor, the atoner plotline was converted into a power-up for Kaitlin.

* GagDub: Supposedly, when the cast got word that the series was being canceled, they went out, got drunk, came back, went into the recording booth and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8_HrVhnqNg redubbed various scenes]] to be more mature and... [[ToiletHumor vulgar.]]

* GratuitousJapanese: As with ''Franchise/PowerRangers,'' Japanese footage in the background is an occupational hazard of using StockFootage from Japan-original shows. It's most obvious in one episode where a monster kidnaps a little boy. There is a kanji sign in the hallway to his apartment. {{Justified|Trope}} on this occasion, as the boy was Japanese-American (in order to match up with the kidnapped boy from the Japanese footage), and the place might have been in a Japanese community within Crossworld City.

* ThinlyVeiledDubCountryChange: This is also done, up to the point where a kanji sign was visible in one episode when a monster kidnaps a Japanese boy. The story justifies it due to the presence of a Japanese-American community in Crossworld City.

* TheDragon: Season 1 didn't have Dragons per se, but Grimlord had his go-to recurring monsters and his assistants as Ziktor, as well as sub-villains who handled the technical end of his plans or prepared the MonsterOfTheWeek, such as General Ivar, Colonel Icebot, and Decimator. Season 2 had warriors Doom Master and Despera, and the monster-maker Oraclon.
** Decimator beat the crap out of Ryan Steele almost every time they met, was explicitly said to be Grimlord's second in command, and usually either guarded Grimlord or acted as field commander. He's a full-on Dragon.

The premise is basically that via AppliedPhlebotinum created by Tyler Steele, Karl Ziktor, and Professor Horatio Hart, anything created in virtual reality actually ''exists'' in AnotherDimension, and can be brought forth into the real world. Tyler Steele goes missing, but left behind the means for his son and friends to defend the real world from Ziktor, now a CorruptCorporateExecutive with a virtual army ready to conquer the world. [[CityOfAdventure Crossworld City]] is a weak point between dimensions and as such, the front lines in the battle with Ziktor, aka Grimlord (Ziktor's super-powered virtual world avatar), and his forces. Professor Hart, his body mortally wounded by Grimlord, exists inside the base's computers and acts as TheObiWan.

As of June 2011, the entire series (along with ''[[Series/{{Beetleborgs}} Big Bad Beetleborgs]]'' and ''Franchise/PowerRangers'') is available for streaming on Netflix. It's also released on DVD in Europe in the 1990s and in North America in the mid 2000s. But due to mediocre sales, ShoutFactory has released a statement that they cannot release the last DVD that has the remaining episodes in the series, though they later released it exclusively through their online store.

* ButtMonkey: Percy, courtesy of Jeb. Also, General Ivar to an extent, because every time he went into combat against the Troopers, his tank would get rolled off a cliff, he'd be beaten by JB in a sword fight, etc. This despite his competence amongst Grimlord's forces.

* CutAndPasteTranslation: of the three different ''Metal Heroes'' shows. Which sometimes leads to contrived plots where Ryan gets conveniently separated from JB and Kaitlin to cover for the fact the StockFootage is from different stories and never the twain shall meet (outside of American footage).


Added DiffLines:

* DrillTank: Two- the VR Battlecruiser (piloted by both Ryan and JB) and the VR Combat Module (Ryan's exclusive season 2 vehicle) had these available.

Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: As mentioned further down the show never had a proper finale, thus Ziktor/Grimlord is never destroyed or punished for his crimes.
