** The second manga trio of Go, Shou, and Gai is also relatively well-known, at least compared to the cast of... well, anything after ''Go''. Even on ThisVeryWiki, most of the tropes relate to the original team, the team in the ''Go'' manga, or the cast [[AlternateUniverse as portrayed in]] ''Armageddon''.

* NightmareFuel: Several aspects of the Getter Rays are like this, as are many of the enemies.
** One of the best examples is the final battle of ''Getter Robo Go'' where [[spoiler:Shin Getter ''absorbs'' everything it comes into contact. This doesn't become clear until the largest enemy mecha grabs Shin Getter in its tentacles, which then turn into a hand. The POV shifts to show that the mecha is now Shin Getter's new body. Enemy and ally alike are freaked out.]]
--->'''Schwartz:''' [[spoiler:AAAH! AAAH! THE GETTER IS EATING IT!!]]
*** On a meta level, it's also scary because it's theorized to be the birth of [[spoiler: ''[[MechanicalAbomination Getter]]'' ''[[EldritchAbomination Emperor.]]'']]
** The Devolved beings in Getter Robo Devolution. 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''.]]
*** 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.]]
** The Invaders in ''Armageddon''. Of particular mention is the way they infiltrated and assimilated a large portion of a polar colony, then used the [[AndIMustScream still-alive Colonists]] to ward Shin Getter off from attempting to attack it. Just as it's about to do irreversible damage to Shin Getter, the Black Getter swoops out of the sky, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkc6E47KBNI proceeds to brutally rip the Invader to shreds without caring about the moaning and crying colonists that were assimilated by the Invaders]]. The resulting chorus of cries from the unfortunates who ''splatter everywhere while still moaning'' horrifies the pilots of the Shin Getter, as well as the one girl they managed to rescue.
** Shin Getter Robo itself, given it's sinister 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 Ray storage capacity.
** 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!]]

* WTHCastingAgency: In Getter Robo: Daikessen, Musashi is voiced by Yasuhiko Kawazu. Now he isn't a bad voice actor by any means. However, his performance as Musashi is very poor and he gives him a voice that sounds like [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Patrick Star]] if he was japanese, and it really doesn't suit Musashi at all, since it makes him sound very dimwitted. Granted, Musashi can be pretty dimwitted at times, however he's also proven to be smarter than he looks multiple times.

* WhatAnIdiot: In ''New Getter Robo'', Ryoma at one point tells Benkei that Michiru would fall for him if he shows her his [[UnusualEuphemism little warrior.]] He actually buys this.

* WhatAnIdiot: In ''New Getter Robo'', Ryoma at one point tells Benkei that Michiru would fall for him if he shows her his [[UnusualEuphemism little warrior.]] He actually buys this. Justified, given that Benkei has lived a very sheltered life and as a result, he has NoSocialSkills.

* 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.
