* {{Badass}}: Zone Fighter has beaten Godzilla in a friendly match, fought King Ghidorah twice leading to a draw and even killed Gigan! That's right! Gigan isn't in any more films until ''Film/GodzillaFinalWars'' because he was killed.

Zone Fighter's trademark power is his Meteor Missile Might in which wristbands filled with anti-kaiju missiles are fired. Unlike the armies', they actually kill monsters and are very accurate, to the point that they even rival Showa Mechagodzilla's Finger Missiles or Heisei Moguera's Spiral Grenade Missiles. These missiles' destructive power rivals even the first Mechagodzilla's finger missiles. He can also fire a Meteor Proton Beam which can blow up a kaiju with a single blast and is used on monsters too powerful to be killed by the Missile Might Attack. He can also fire a stream of arrow shaped energy which can be either two little red stream, one large red stream, or two very short yellow ones. He can fire a Subduing Mist which acts as a sort of drug to calm down a monster, he can run at jet speed and fly. He also can make a Zone-Barrier to block projectiles or make a Hyper-Barrier to reflect projectiles back at the source.

* FollowTheLeader: Giant hero similar to Series/{{Ultraman}}? Check!
** The "family of superheroes" aspect also makes it similar to {{Shazam}}



* NoExportForYou: The show has never been sold out of Japan.

The show sadly had a very short run (so short that making a paragraph on the series as a whole can't be done, or can it?) thanks partly to the 1973 oil crisis and partly due to low ratings. The show has also been criticized for being a "rip off" of the long-running ''Series/{{Ultraman}}''. The show is most famous for having Toho's Godzilla, Gigan, and King Ghidorah making guest appearances on the show. That's right, that Franchise/{{Godzilla}}. The show has many campy moments since it was aimed at kids. Despite this camp however the show could be surprisingly violent for a kids show. You haven't lived until you've seen Zone Fighter [[CruelAndUnusualDeath rip out a monster's eyes, cut off its arms, shoot off its head, and then fly its corpse into space just for cheating in ring toss]]. There's a lot of MonsterOfTheWeek so you'll rarely see the same kaiju twice, especially given what happens to said monster.
