* OlderThanTheyThink: Much like the Misconception that MazingerZ invented the RocketPunch and CallingYourAttacks which was actually inspired by GiantRobo, the concept of combining robots predates Getter Robo with the 1968 manga "Giant Machine" which featured a family of scientists controlling vehicles to combine to form the title mecha, [[http://gonohon3.blog.jp/archives/28026064.html complete with "forming the head" of the HumongousMecha]]

** From Armageddon/Sekai Saigo no Hi is the instrumental track ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZ_d1YdrQwE TEKIJOU]]'', which is an intense soundtrack suited for both duels and dramatic transformations.

*** Oh and now it gets worse. Turns out there's been a BIGGER threat looming over them. This threat has also been their closest ally. Has assisted the team and humanity in fighting the Devolved beings but has slowly revealed it's true nature. The name of this threat? [[spoiler:You guessed it. The Getter Emperor yet again... the whole manga seemingly it's ACTUAL origin story.]]

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: ''Getter Robo Go'' anime is supposedly not well-received. ''Shin vs Neo'', which is based on ''Go'', is considered a successful redemption take on ''Go''.

* LoveItOrHateIt: Even among hardcore fans, ''New Getter'' is rather divisive.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adSGHnlEgeU Ima Ga Sono Toki Da]]'', the title theme for the first few episodes of ''Armageddon''. Not that the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyBfoCtsXYk Original 70's Theme song]] isn't as awesome.

* 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. 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).
** Also Hayato, 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''.



* HilariousInHindsight: Anyone who's watched ''Anime/{{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).

** The Devolutionary bodies in the new Getter Robo manga. They're unlike any other mechanical beast the Getter has faced before. They're strong and quick. Able to hurt the Getter as well.... but the truly scary part about them? [[spoiler:They're all different ''Getter Robos''.]]
