* ABoyAndHisX: In the anime, the main cast are all arranged in individual Medafighter-Medabot pairs that highlight a specific relationship between them; in the games, the Medabots have no established personality at all and are usually arranged into teams of "Leader Medabot and two supporting Medabots". (The anime usually chooses the leader Medabot to be the anime partner).

* ImplausibleSynchronicity: At one point Kam doctors footage of a fight between Metabee and his Kilobot to make it look like Metabee was cheating. The footage of the fight was broadcast live, but due to the doctoring it was delayed a minute. His plot was uncovered when Arika points out to everyone watching that the timestamp on the footage was one minute behind the "actual" time.

** To a smaller extent, Cyandog/Crosserdog and Iwanoi/Spike; Cyandog is a poor fighter because his medal isn't of the properly compatible type. A monkey medal, no less.

** Another example is Spike and his Medabot Cyandog/Crosserdog, who ironically is powered by a monkey medal.

* WithOurSwordsScene: There is a scene where Metabee has been badly damaged, so he borrows Sumilidon's super-fast legs, and the {{Arm Cannon}}s of Crosserdog and Rokusho.

The anime series, which ran for 52 episodes in Japan from 1999 to 2000, is supposed to be about robots who fight each other, but most of the show is just wacky hijinks. It's the heartwarming tale of robot dog fights, ridiculous plot devices and poorly edited on-screen text. It stands out from other 90s dubs for its surprisingly dark undertones, relatively solid plot, and the fact that it wasn't afraid to [[AffectionateParody poke fun at itself]]. Hey, at least it's not a [[YuGiOh card game]] that decides the fate of the world.

''Medabot Spirits'' (''Medarot Damashii''), a sequel series that was also dubbed for the States, followed up on the original anime's story, but a majority of the characters from the original were [[BrotherChuck dropped without any explanation]], while Ikki and Metabee were given a NextTierPowerUp.

** During an episode where he was "training" with Dr. Aki (read: dusting his house), Ikki mentions seeing a movie where [[TheKarateKid a kid learns karate from a wise old mentor by doing chores for him]], and thinks Dr. Aki is doing the same thing.

** Later, ''Spirits'' attempted to undo this by "[[{{Revision}} explaining]]" that Metabee's Medaforce had been too weak and now might now actually do some damage to Kilobots. They successfully manage to do 1% damage to [[HopelessBossFight Redrun]]'s head.

They successfully manage to do 1% damage to [[HopelessBossFight Redrun]]'s head. It's then subverted later when all attempts to use the Medaforce later on do major levels of damage, as a team or alone.

** Roks in ''Spirits'' looks enough like Rokusho (who had been PutOnABus) to invite confusion; that he has the ''[[ExaggeratedTrope same Voice Actor and Leitmotif]]'' doesn't help. It gets even worse later on, when several Kilobots end up being pretty blatant redesigns of season 1 and 2 'bots Sumilidon, Warbandit, Arcbeetle and others.

Justified as in the games, they're all later models of these medabots.

* CripplingOverspecialization: PlayedForLaughs in ''Spirits''. Kilobots have no non-violent abilities or programming, so if you need to do something like, say, halt a speeding truck to keep yourself from falling out of the back, your kilobot will be unable to help you -- "stop the truck" isn't an attack. Seems to become subverted afterward this incident as the Kilobots begin getting smarter, most likely because Kam wouldn't be able to sell them if they seemed too dangerous.
