Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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]].

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Atlas. His first 2 episodes built him up as the perfect ShadowArchetype to Astro. Then, he's sent adrift in space for thirty-somehthing episodes, only to be brought back for one RedemptionEqualsDeath episode, and is brought BackFromTheDead to be a minor player in the GrandFinale.

** DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: President Stone seems like a thinly veiled Expy of George W Bush. Just hear him about going at war against the Surface; in fact, that part alone is a huge DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything moment.



* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The title theme (played in variation the first time Astro flies, over the end credits, and a few other times) is truly gorgeous.
