* GrandFinale: The two parter, "Rearview Mirror Mirror". The ending left it open ended in case they got renewed but sadly that wasn't the case. For what it's worth though, the show goes out on high note.

** "Coop D'Etat" is filled to the brim with these, the two key warriors from the robot planet are obviously based on {{Anime/MazingerZ}} (distinctive head and leg designs, it's entertainingly blatant and gets even worse when he gets his [[Anime/MazinkaiserSKL hands on the chainsword]]) and {{Anime/Mazinkaiser}} (trademark wings, blade gauntlets and body design, just in a different colour scheme), with the occasional bystander looking like {{Anime/VoltesV}}, {{Anime/Raideen}} or a [[{{TabletopGame/Warhammer40000}} Space Marine]] (complete with an omega on the chestplate).

** In episode 25, a billboard for a lumber store has the slogan "Got Wood?"

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: All of Coop's regular rants against the bad guy. One time, it was more like "Jaywalking, Littering and Playing Loud Music." Oh, and he did all three of the acts, not the bad guy. {{Lampshaded}} by Kiva and Jamie. (See a compilation of all the ones from Season 1 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YB_446w_A0w here]])

Action cartoon ''Megas XLR'' -- created by the minds behind MTV's ''WesternAnimation/{{Downtown}}'' -- serves up an [[AffectionateParody affectionate spoof]] of "guy culture", science fiction, {{anime}}, and pretty much anything considered "cool" in TheEighties. If you consider ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' the {{Deconstruction}} of the HumongousMecha genre, then consider ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR'' the Demolition (and, possibly, the American precursor to ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''). ''Megas'' remains one of the few mecha shows to get unanimous praise from [[ImageBoards 4chan's]] [[{{Anime}} /a/]], [[WesternAnimation /co/]], and [[HumongousMecha /m/]] boards.[[note]] For 4chan, that ''[[{{GIFT}} really]]'' says something, [[FandomRivalry especially given that those three boards tend to have very divergent tastes.]][[/note]]

The show, originally entitled Lowbrow, began life as a pilot episode that was shown in Creator/CartoonNetwork's 2002 Summer Contest to determine a new [[Creator/CartoonCartoons Cartoon Cartoon]], where it ended up the most popular one. The pilot episode was also shown during Toonami's Giant Robot Week, and the show itself premiered on Creator/{{Toonami}}. It has yet to see a DVD release, but at least you can still find it on iTunes and [[UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade Xbox Live]].

Added DiffLines:

* AssholeVictim: In one episode, Coop destroys a race of sentient robots. However, earlier in the episode we see a mural that indicates that said race also wiped out a group of humanoids, and they certainly seemed appalled that Megas had "humanoid infestation".

*** That one wasn't entirely Coop's fault. [[Creator/PeterCullen Quarrol]] (the warden) kept attacking MEGAS, had his guard machines kill seemingly innocent robots who were going to tell Coop how to get home, and generally acted like a badguy. Until the end, even the audience didn't know that the robots were criminals and that Quarrol was a goodguy. If he'd taken the time to explain the situation to heroes, instead of trying to have the ground into shavings, and given them directions back to Earth, Coop would have likely sided with him.
