* BodyHorror: Two different types, depending on the series. In the case of ''GateKeepers'', the Invaders were sleeper agents, some sleeping so deep that they were horrified by the realization of what they really were. In ''Anime/GateKeepers21'', the Invaders are TheVirus.

* HeyItsThatVoice: There's quite a few recognizable seiyuu, especially Takahiro Sakurai and Ayako Kawasumi in some of their earliest major roles.
** In the English dub, there are [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Wendee Lee]], [[Anime/CodeGeass Johnny Yong]] [[PlayingAgainstType Bosch]], and [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Michelle Ruff]], among other prolific VAs.

Added DiffLines:

* TragicMonster: Mr. Fukuoka, the teacher in Megumi's joining episode. He had a stronger sense of identity compared to most invaders and it was implied that his JerkAss behaviour throughout the episode was due to the Invaders messing with his head, giving him intense headaches and stressing him out. He still showed a soft spot for Megumi and was clearly torn between wanting to be human and fulfilling his mission as an Invader.

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoDifferent: Megumi is jealous of Ruriko's seemingly effortless academic success, beauty, and wealth. But when [[spoiler:she turns traitor and sees inside Ruriko's mind, she realizes Ruriko actually puts a ''lot'' of effort into school because she suffers from the same self-esteem issues Megumi does]].

* AwesomeButImpractical: Reiko's gate power is very effective, able to take out hordes of invaders at once, but it depends on her having a musical instrument (often a grand piano that can easily be destroyed).

''Gate Keepers'' started out as a TurnBasedStrategy (with DatingSim elements thrown in) video game for the {{Playstation}} in 1999. A manga was also commisioned as well and both were released in the same month. It was later adapted into an anime series in 2000 by Creator/{{GONZO}} who decided to omit [[PutOnABus one of the main Gatekeepers]] and replace another with another character with a similar design. The setting takes place on Earth, after the end of World War II. In the middle of all that, alien creatures known simply as Invaders are infiltrating Earth and attempting to take over the world by turning humans into soulless robots. The only means to defeat the Invaders is by tapping into powerful energy locked inside dimensional "gates".
