* MyRealDaddy: Go Nagai is often credited as the man behind ''Getter'', but all he did was come up with the concept; Ken Ishikawa handled pretty much everything else (though Nagai did help with monster designs). In recent years, especially following Ishikawa's death, this has been getting better.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Like many of the works of Creator/KenIshikawa and GoNagai, Manga/GetterRobo is rather popular in Spanish and Italian speaking countries.

** Shin Getter Robo itself, given it's sinester look, it's demonic expression (complete with batshit insane, robotic eyes) and the fact that the ''robot itself develops a malicious self awareness'' thanks to it's superior Getter Rays storage capacity.

*** On a meta level, it's also scary because it's theorized to be the birth of [[spoiler: ''[[MechanicalAbomination Getter]]'' ''[[EldritchAbomination Emperor.]]'']]


Added DiffLines:

** Absolutely [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]] as [[https://youtu.be/Pciq4XOXYTo the battle against the Four Heavenly Kings]] is in New Getter Robo, Ryoma's reaction to the sudden burst of Getter Rays from the fallen Getter Machines is ''horrifying''. [[spoiler: While Benkei and Hayato are lucid and slightly disturbed by their bodies literally pulsing with Getter Rays, Ryoma goes completely AxCrazy, roaring like a beast and [[LaughingMad laughing like a maniac]] while ignoring the fact that his furious movements are ''literally crushing his allies to death''. It takes the two of them screaming his name at the top of their lungs to get him to snap out of it.]]
*** And that's not even getting into what ends the fight. [[spoiler: The team doesn't kill the last Heavenly King, A version of ''Getter Emperor'' appears and crushes the monster to pulp in it's hand!]]

* 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''.

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).
