Notable for being one of the few western shows about mecha not coming from Japan[[note]]but ''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.

* TheNapoleon: Momzz. It was inevitable, given that her personality template was [[NapoleonBonaparte the short guy himself]], Ziv lampshades it when he figures out this important detail.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Ninjzz is the one BOYZZ made specifically for fighting, but LLP mops the floor with him in a vicious CurbStompBattle.

to:

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Ninjzz LLP may be a NonActionBigBad for most of the series, but when he steps into battle personally, he is a surprisingly dangerous opponent. Case in point, LLP takes on Ninjizz, the one BOYZZ made who was designed specifically for fighting, but combat (and is, you know, a robot while LLP mops the floor with is a mere human), and soundly defeats him in a vicious brutal CurbStompBattle.

This show focused on the exploits of Ziv Zulander ([[{{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.

* 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).
