* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Yes, folks, this really is a merchandise-driven children's show at heart, and it's worth remembering that as you watch it. The original, anyway - FINAL was made for the PeripheryDemographic that sprang up after the wee kiddies didn't really take to it.

Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: Mikoto can be this to some; while she's not really all that obnoxious per se, most of what she does seems to be turning into annoying crybaby whenever Guy shows even a little bit of vulnerability. This is quite common especially in first episodes.
** Though given her backstory, [[spoiler:it might not be suprising her being emotionally fragile about her now cyborg crush/boyfriend risking his life in battle against frightning extra-terrencial mechanoids - he's all she has left...]]

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: Child characters appearing naked. Not a big deal at all in Japan (where nakedness in that context just indicates innocence) but raised some eyebrows in the West.

* SequelDisplacement: ''[=GaoGaiGar=]'' is the most easily recognized of the eight ''Anime/BraveSeries''. All but the hardest-core mecha fans will react with a blank stare and "Wait... there was a series?" when the ''Brave Series'' is brought up in the context of GGG. This is all compounded by the fact that, as of this writing, [[me/BraveOfTheSunFighbird only]] [[Anime/TheBraveFighterOfLegendDaGarn three]] [[Anime/BravePoliceJDecker other]] ''Brave Series'' have been fully-subbed in a coherent way.

** The [[{{Determinator}} aptly named]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nm2T0uXYBbk Yuuki Aru Tatakai]], practically the musical cue that the villains are about to get their sh*t wrecked in a truly epic way. Most of the series's [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome best moments]] have this song accompanied them (the showdown with EI-01, the final battle with the Z-Master, GaoGaiGar vs Zonuda and Gai's EPIC beatdown of Palparepa)

** No mention of Guy's [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown BRUTAL Beatdown]] of the [[spoiler: Zounda]]? Sure, it seems awesome, but [[spoiler: when you hear Guy's anguished and enraged shouts as he destroys the beast that contains Mikoto by ripping it apart, even after [=GaoGaiGar=] starts falling apart,]] you can't help but shiver. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCE42E5oths Watch and Listen...]] He doesn't even resort to using any of his attacks, just shouting in rage and tearing it limb from limb. And when it comes to the core... he just rips it out, no Hell and Heaven.

* AwesomeMusic: The theme, which is sung by [[JAMProject Endoh Masaaki]]. ''Especially'' the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhTUh7d8Ft0 FINAL]] version.

** Episode 16: [[spoiler: a university festival vanishes into a fireball, with little warning, leaving nothing but a massive crater]]. What would give small children nightmares is the way the attack is presented - it's very reminiscent of Sarah Connor's dream sequence in ''{{Terminator 2}}'' and unlike any other so far, we see the injured and the scale of the disaster, implying that people actually ''died'' this time.

* SequelDisplacement: To wit: [=GaoGaiGar=] is the ''only'' one of [[BraveCommandDagwon two]] out of the eight BraveSeries to have a page here on TVTropes. That's saying something.
** The rest of the BraveSeries now have pages, but [=GaoGaiGar=] is ''still'' the most easily recognized of the eight. All but the hardest-core mecha fans will react with a blank stare and "Wait... there was a series?" when the BraveSeries is brought up in the context of GGG.
*** This is all compounded by the fact that, as of this writing, [[BraveOfTheSunFighbird only]] [[Anime/TheBraveFighterOfLegendDaGarn three]] [[Anime/{{BravePoliceJ-Decker}} other]] BraveSeries have been fully-subbed in a coherent way.
