* CompleteMonster: [[AGodAmI Great Professor Bias]] is the prime example of [[TheCorrupter corrupters]] in the franchise. Having corrupted three geniuses before the show began, [[TheChessmaster turning them into his students]], [[BigBad Bias]] has them massacre the remaining geniuses at Academia. After kicking out Goh Omura and attempting to kill him, Bias recruits the aliens Guildos and Butchy. When Guildos tries to prove his superiority through [[MonsterOfTheWeek Guild-zuno]], it is revealed that both aliens are [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot actually robots]] built by Bias to make the humans try harder, which he coldly tells [[PluckyComicRelief Butchy]] to his face after Guildos's death. After Butchy is convinced to defect, Bias [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness blows him up]]. Goh later realizes that Bias only wants his students for their brains, one of which will be used for the Giga Brain Wave, which will turn all humanity into Bias's slaves and make Bias immortal. After [[TheLeader Yusuke]] saves the world from the Giga Brain Wave, Bias [[FountainOfYouth is reverted to a child]] who shifts his goals from conquest to [[OmnicidalManiac destruction]] and mocks [[TheHeart Megumi's]] kindness when she offers it before finally [[RedemptionRejection rejecting redemption]].

* NeverLiveItDown: Megumi only cries once or twice in the first few episodes, which somehow translates into her sobbing almost every episode.

*** She didn't cry once or twice overall, she ''does'' cry in some other episodes, but still not actually OnceAnEpisode.

* {{Anvilicious}}: Japanese universities tend to have high entrance standards compared to Western ones, and it's still not uncommon to find students struggling to get in. Knowing this makes the "getting a good score above all" thrust of the overly Elitist Volt hit a bit closer to home...
** SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Not that the lesson is a bad one.

*GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: This show, along with ''Series/ChoushinseiFlashman'' and ''Series/KidouKeijiJiban'' was one of the very first SuperSentai series to be aired in some Latin American countries as Peru, where is still fondly remembered.

* FanFavorite: Despite the sea of red warriors in the franchise, Yuusuke/Red Falcon is still a fan favorite, even managing to show up as a major character in ''Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai''. For ''Super Sentai'', a hero showing up unsuited in an anniversary special barring ''Gokaiger'', not being from the previous 5-10 seasons, and not being named [[Series/JAKQDengekitai Soukichi Banba]] is a big deal.
** Toei seems to love this season as a whole. Not only did this show start a few traditions (ThreePlusTwo and already combined robots combining), but Yuusuke also shows up in ''Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai'' as mentioned above and Joh shows up in ''Gokaiger'', which is in itself a big deal since ''Liveman'' is one of only three pre-''Dairanger'' shows to get a tribute episode in ''Gokaiger''.
** Megumi/Blue Dolphin deserves a special mention, since she's the very first female Sentai Blue Ranger ever.

By the time this is revealed, he is cemented as The Unfettered, and even as his plans start breaking down, he's determined to continue, which ultimately leads to his death.]]

** Also, life, youth, and your humanity are important and can't be spurned or destroyed. [[spoiler: Bias tries and ultimately fails to completely purge the four doctors of their humanity like he has done to himself, ruins others lives for his goals, and is trying to create an artificial Fountain of Youth, meaning he abuses all three of these things.]]
