* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: ''Anime/MazingerZ'' was broadcast in Spain in 1972. However, only thirty-three random episodes of the first season were dubbed before MoralGuardians forced to pull the plug -and only thirty-two episodes were aired. The last dubbed episode never was emited-. IVS released several tapes, recopilating twenty-four of the episodes aired by [=RTVE1=]. For fifteen years buying, renting or borrowing those few tapes were the only way Mazinger-Z fans could watch the series (and only a tiny chunk of it!). In 1993 ''Anime/MazingerZ'' -the whole series- and ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' -part of it- were broadcast -and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' also was aired later-, but both series never were released in tapes or DVD, and if you had not recorded the episodes or you did not know someone could lend you his/her tapes, you were out of luck. Finally in the late nineties, several movies featuring the most famous GoNagai Super Robots were released in tape, and in the 00's a group of fans uploaded and shared both series and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' online. However, the original Spanish dub of many episodes is still missing since they were never released (fortunately, some fans recorded several episodes and kept the tapes for THREE decades. Thank to them part of the lost dubbing job was recovered). Given the fights and disagreements between Dynamic Planning and Toei prevent the original anime series from being aired or released out of Japan, sharing the tapes or downloading the episodes online is the only way Spanish-speaking fans can watch the Mazinger trilogy.

* NoExportForYou: This is a specially moronic instance of this trope sounds scarily similar to what has happened in France with ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer''. ''Anime/MazingerZ'' was emitted in 1978 and pulled out due to MoralGuardians after barely emitting thirty-two episodes of the original ninety-two. ''Thirty-five years later'' it ''still'' is popular enough licensers consider releasing the [=DVDs=] would be profitable. However, due to legal disputes between Dynamic Planning and Creator/ToeiAnimation, the series can not be licensed for TV broadcasts or DVD releases out of Japan. Selecta Vision has managed to publish ''Anime/ShinMazinger'' -and made money of it- and have mentioned they would like getting ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'' licensed, and the original manga made by GoNagai together with the GosakuOta version have been legally published (the GoNagai version twice), but releasing the original series is pretty much impossible right now. The Spanish and Latin American fanbases are very NOT pleased.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Sayaka Yumi from was one of the first ActionGirl and {{Tsundere}} with a lead role in Anime, and she and Kouji did the BelligerentSexualTension bit before no one else. However, she was PutOnABus at the end of the series. TheBusCameBack again at the end of ''Anime/GreatMazinger'', but after the end of the series she was PutOnABus again. She was to become the 4th spazer pilot in ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'', but character developer and co-plotter of the series, Shingo Araki, opposed GoNagai and designed a new character that did not appear in the Grendizer manga: Maria Grace Fleed, younger sister to Grendizer main character Duke Fleed. Maria soon became a fan-favourite in the latter part of the series. It is... interesting speculating what might have happened if Sayaka and Maria showed up in the same series (both of them being hot-tempered, HotBlooded {{Tsundere}}s liked the same boy. And Sayaka was a ClingyJealousGirl to boot).

** Another GoNagai series, ''Anime/GodMazinger'', has nothing to do with the original series. However, it was meant to be the sequel from ''Anime/MazingerZ''. However the idea got rejected, ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' were made instead of, and years later a ''Anime/GodMazinger'' anime was made, but removed any connection to the original series.

** MazingerZ was aired in the Philippines in the 1980s alongside ''Anime/VoltesV'' and ''{{Anime/Daimos}}'' until they were ordered off the air by President Ferdinand Marcos, without reaching their finales. ''Voltes V'' and ''Daimos'' came back after Marcos was gone, but ''Mazinger Z'' has never returned to this day.

** '''Sayaka''': Sayaka is definitely not ''[[Manga/CityHunter the daughter of a Yakuza boss]]'', two blue-haired {{Magical Girl}}s from ''OkusamaWaMahouShoujo'' or ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' or a ''[[VisualNovel/DanganRonpa SHSL-Idol]]''.

** Kouji Kabuto wore a ScarfOfAsskicking and used a bike to dock on Mazinger-Z in GoNagai's early designs. However, ''KamenRider'' premiered before ''Anime/MazingerZ'', and GoNagai removed and changed those elements because he didn't want people to think he was ripping off another show.
