* AssPull: [[spoiler:Kei in Armageddon is actually Genki Saotome, who is female.]]



* DesignatedHero: Hayato in ''New Getter'' starts off as murderous, sadistic, AxCrazy terrorist. Other characters are quick to forget this, even after he tries to kill them all almost immediately after getting control of the Getter.
** That's because Hayato is quick to prove himself as a skilled pilot and a reliable hero. Besides, he's ''their'' murderous, sadistic, Ax Crazy terrorist.

* DesignatedHero: Subverted. Hayato in ''New Getter'' starts off as murderous, sadistic, AxCrazy terrorist. Other characters are quick to forget this, even after he tries to kill them all almost immediately after getting control of the Getter.
** That's
Getter, though this is because Hayato is quick to prove himself as a skilled pilot and a reliable hero. Besides, he's ''their'' murderous, sadistic, Ax Crazy terrorist.



* EnsembleDarkhorse: Musashi. Originally an anime-only character, his surprise popularity led to Ishikawa incorporating him into the manga. He's been very dead in both continuities since the 1970s (apart from a brief appearance in ''Armageddon'' and a cameo in ''Shin vs Neo''), but he's still ''the'' most popular and well-known Getter-3 pilot.
** He's so dead that virtually all reboot continuities and games featuring him ''will'' kill him off. The only time it's possible to save him will involve secrets (and these routes are non-Canon as far as story goes).
** Hayato might be this or at least the CreatorsPet, as he's the only character to appear in all five story arcs of the manga, having survived pretty much all his friends and allies by the time of ''Arc''.

** He's so dead that
pilot. Humorously, there's a bit of a running gag involving him [[TheyKilledKennyAgain dying in some way]], due to the his HeroicSacrifice in the original manga, to the point where virtually all reboot continuities and games featuring him ''will'' kill him off. The only time it's possible to save him will involve secrets (and these routes are non-Canon as far as story goes).

* HilariousInHindsight: Anyone who's watched ''{{Voltron}}'' knows the phrase uttered during the transformation sequence; it's the page quote on this very wiki. Then you realize that not only has Getter Robo been doing those actions with just three units, but more ''accurately'' as well (the Black Lion makes up the head and torso, whereas the other lions form a single limb each).

* DracoInLeatherPants: It seems that whenever the Getter Emperor rears its head the only time it appears heroic is when there is another assimlative enemy on the horizon (The Invaders) or something that is so desperate to stop the Getter is destroying Earth too (Shin Getter Robo manga.) Many see the Getter Emperor as being a simple force of awesome that is not selfish or destruvice to anyone or anythign in the wide universe.

** ''Getter Robo Go'' has Raseshi and Professor Rando, rather clear [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of of [[MazingerZ Baron Ashura and Doctor Hell]] and has Raseshi [[spoiler: set up his master's defeat as a part of triumphant return of ancient race he's a member of]]. Guess what few years later Baron Ashura does in ''Anime/ShinMazinger''.
