* DepthDeception: The 3D effect is driven by the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulfrich_effect Pulfrich effect]]. When viewing footage with elements horizontally moving while one eye is behind a dark lens, the eye that's covered lags a bit in its perception. This gives enough of a perspective shift that the brain thinks its seeing 3D. This is also a case of TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything since it looks just fine without it (no seeing double as you would in modern stereoscopic 3D footages or the cyan/red schema used during this time).

This show focused on the exploits of Ziv Zulander ([[Film/{{Zoolander}} no, the name was not coined by Ben Stiller]]) and his sister Blitzy. Ziv works for the RM Corporation, run by Sir Lewis Leon Paradim. It was responsible for all the technological robotic advancements of that time, partly thanks to Ziv's inventive streak. Life was good for the two siblings, however LLP, as he was referred, decided that being the owner of the wealthiest conglomerate in existence just was not enough, and that ruling the planet was much more in line with what he wanted. He decides to utilize the robotic creations sold by the company to secretly lay the foundation for a coup d'état of the world, and wants everyone in the company on the team. Ziv is obviously shocked at this, and wants no part in it. This in turn, makes him the prime enemy of the entire Corp, and he goes on the lam with his sister, converts his family's old fallout shelter into a secret base, and retools his own group of robots, known as the BOYZZ, to assist in the battle to save the world from RM Corp's sinister schemes.

Notable for being one of the few western shows about mecha not coming from Japan.[[note]]Though it was ''still'' animated there anyways.[[/note]] The show was really intended to be MerchandiseDriven due to its 3-D gimmick. During each episode's big action scene, someone would shout out "Laser Time!" Signaling the viewer to put on 3-D glasses that you could only get by buying one of the toys. However the toyline failed and became one of the reasons the series didn't last longer.

* WouldHurtAChild: The Corp set a trap for ZZ and the BOYZZ, feeding false information of creating a krang ore refining accelerator in a certain building, which prompts ZZ to launch an all-out attack on said building. What the Corp REALLY does is set up a class of elementary school students and their teacher there in the building in order to trick ZZ into unknowingly killing them. All just to frame him and further convince the world he is a heartless terrorist. Unfortunately for them, ZZ is very cautious about his attacks and makes sure the building has what it's supposed to have before blowing it up. He was naturally disgusted when he found out about the trap, that the Corp was willing to have a bunch of kids killed just to paint ZZ as a villain.

*CyberneticsEatYourSoul: In "Block 93" we are introduced to RM Corp's Humabot Lab, where volunteer humans are granted implants due to the person's obsession with becoming stronger. BodyHorror is in full effect, one Humabot has an empty space between her pelvis and lower chest due to having a robotic lower half. Another cyborg has an exposed brain covered by a dome. For a kids show, these cyborgs look like they are out of a story from a dark CyberPunk story rather than an action show targeted towards kids.
**Dr. Hiss himself technically fits the definition of a Humabot, though the reason for his implants is not made known. In "Block 93," it is made clear by Hiss that the Humabot Lab may also serve as a way to dispose of undesirables or enemies of RM Corp.
