* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Australians Love Astro Boy]]: They make up a large fanbase, partly due to being one of the few countries outside Japan that got the 1982 series.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: There's a story arc about a group who skins dogs and turns them into cyborgs. While it's not actually shown on-panel, it's still incredibly dark. Likewise, other stories explore topics like racism (through [[FantasticRacism through anti-robot prejudice]]), war, and child abuse (as in Astro's origin). Nevertheless, it's still aimed at children. Likely because Tezuka respected his audience and didn't want to talk down to them.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: The PS2 entry by Creator/{{Sega}} ended up being incredibly bland in terms of gameplay, among other problems.

* ComingOutStory: Astro Boy's secret of being a robot resembles most Coming Out Stories, especially the nighttime scene when he almost "comes out" to Cora.

* CompleteMonster: In this AnimatedAdaptation of Creator/OsamuTezuka's [[Manga/AstroBoy ]] manga, [[PresidentEvil President Stone]], at first seeming to be nothing more than an impulsive and childish leader, is slowly revealed to be far more wicked. Stone commissions Doctors Tenma and Elefun to build him a super robot, known as The Peacekeeper, and plans to use it to wage war with the harmless Surface-Dwellers. Despite the scientists' pleas, Stone uploads a highly dangerous power source into The Peacekeeper, resulting in the death of Tenma's son, an accident Stone [[LackOfEmpathy barely acknowledges]]. Learning Tenma rebuilt his son as a robot and used another highly effective power source to give him life, Stone tries to capture or kill the boy to extract the power source, causing copious amounts of destruction to the city in the process. After detaining the child, now known as "Astro," Stone strong-arms Tenma into removing his power core, which would kill the boy. When Tenma refuses, leading to Astro escaping, Stone orders both Tenma and Elefun arrested and plans to have them executed. Stone then reactivates and takes control of The Peacekeeper, starts destroying the city looking for Astro, and prepares to crush several of Astro's friends, [[WouldHurtAChild all children]], trying to draw him out. Doing everything in the hopes that he would be re-elected, Stone was power-hungry, delusional, and [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] for an ultimately [[EvilIsPetty petty reason]].
