* TearJerker: For a SuperRobot series, there's LOTS of this. These include the episodes featuring [[spoiler: the death of Fan Lee's LongLostSibling, right after they found each other - and in poor Fan Lee's arms!]], [[spoiler: the story of the ONLY member of the Dark Horror Army able to resist his brainwashing... since the Army killed his cute little daughter in front of him]], and [[spoiler: Pete's ADayInTheLimelight episode, in which [[DarkAndTroubledPast we learn]] ''why'' is he a JerkAss... due to [[MyGreatestFailure having failed to prevent his parents's deaths]].]]



** {{Macekre}}: They can be this if you wanted a more serious and polished dub that doesn't squish the show into a rather disappointingly small set of {{Compilation Movie}}s (three, to be exact).
