** Despite Knack Productions being founded by some of the best animators of the era and having had notables in the anime industry working with them, quite a number of their productions (especially in the 70s-80s) are for some reason either very low quality (sometimes horrendously so) and/or [[TheMockbuster outright copycats of more-popular shows]].

** The show's occasional and outright use of the word ''kichigai'' ('crazy', 'lunatic', 'loony', 'crackpot') is another example, [[UsefulNotes/{{kotobagari}} thanks to censorship]].

** A single phrase from Maou, "Never mind!" (気にするな) turned [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ui-jNE5ZKCg Episode 47]] into the one episode Chargeman Ken fans normally think out when they hear about him.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatAnIdiot: Maou is notorious for this. In Episode 47, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ui-jNE5ZKCg&t=1m3s a Jural comes up to him,]] wanting to talk with Maou regarding Chargeman Ken.
** '''You'd Expect:''' Maou, noting that Ken is ''very'' good at killing Jurals, decides to listen to one of his loyal soldiers.
** '''Instead:''' "[[MemeticMutation Never mind!]]".
** '''Then:''' The Jural reasonably explains that Ken has killed lots of their brethren and prevented them from carrying out the invasion of Earth as Maou planned. Maou ''[[TooDumbToLive says that Chargeman Ken is insignificant and says that the Jural should not be concerned about him,]]'' after which Maou sends out the X-Corps to attack an airport.
** '''The Result:''' Ken defeats the Juralian spaceships and slaughters (presumably) the entire X-Corps.

* LostInMediasRes: The very first episode. No explanation whatsoever is given as to what the Juralians are, why they want to conquer the world, or where Ken got his powers.

* SelfFanservice: Fairly common in the fandom, and not just in RuleThirtyFour. Aged up versions of Caron and Yuuichi

* SelfFanservice: Fairly common in the fandom, and not just in RuleThirtyFour. Aged up versions of Caron and YuuichiYuuichi ([[{{Lolicon}} or even their usual selves]]) are especially prominent in this respect. And then there's [[HotForTeacher Ms. Nagisa...]] Though she and other characters like Hoshi, who were meant to look good but didn't due to OffModel animation, can be considered a subversion.



* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: It's targeted towards children, but has blood, violence towards children (including a sister almost stabbing her brother), animal death and more than one onscreen suicide, all handled in a very juvenile way.

* EvilIsSexy: The Jurals' human disguises end up ''invariably'' handsome or hot.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: The villain in Episode 23 commits suicide. This isn't so bad back then, but is downright unthinkable to depict in a children's anime today, given Japan's notoriously high suicide rate.

* {{The Woobie}}: X-6, oh so much. [[VillainousBreakdown Suffers an emotional breakdown over a kid who saved her]]? Check. Berated and [[ATasteOfTheLash whipped]] into submission by Maou-sama and his cronies? Check. [[spoiler: Is killed for treason?]] Double check!
