* RealWomenDontWearDresses: Shizu, an ActionGirl who in the first anime shot at a Zoanoid with a gun, dresses the most femininely of the female characters.

* SoBadItsGood: The first live-action movie is a great example of this. The movie is very confused whether it wants to be treated seriously or not. It's got scene-cuts with short musical blasts like a cartoon, cheesy lines merely seconds away from serious exposition, a comic relief character with rap sequences, and a leitmotif stolen from Jaws during a shot where a blade sticks up from someone's chest like a shark's fin.
** See ExecutiveMeddling in the main article for why this film is so confused.

* TearJerker: Quite a few:
** At the top of the list is [[spoiler: Sho and his father, against their wills, one by Barcas' mind control, the other by the Guyver's self-defense mode fight and it ends with the Guyver Mega-Smashing his own father.]] But the 2005 anime cranks it UpToEleven, because it gave much more time to [[spoiler:Mr. Fukamachi]] and strengthened his and Sho's relationship.
** Dr. Odagiri taking Guyot's gravity bullets to save Murakami and then [[spoiler: Murakami's death at Guyot's hands]] both cranked up higher in the 2005 anime.
** A pretty close second is seeing the Creators/Uranus leaving Archanfel behind. The expression Archanfel makes when he cries out 'Then why was I created!?' is a combination of sadness, anger, betrayal, and fear certainly not just humanizes Archanfel but is a very powerful image in itself, never mind that this troper can relate to Archanfel's feeling of abandonment.
** As much as this troper roots against Chronos, while hoping that one or two of the nicer Zoalords survive, and isn't sure what to make of Guyver III, its rather heart breaking to watch Waferdanos and Li Yentsui do their damnedest, and at the cost of their lives, to make sure Barcas survives and escapes with an item Guyver III will do anything to get. [[spoiler: and ultimately they fail!]]
** Hayami [[spoiler: saving Aptom's life by freezing his mind-controlled body to the ground so that Sho can Mega-Smash it, and then allowing the last fragment of Aptom, finally free of Khan to consume his body to re-grow, telling Sho that he's grown stronger and dies with a smile]]
** The thought of how many friends, siblings, lovers, and children wept when their loved ones got up in the middle of the night, transformed, and all merged together to create Khan's one winged angel form and never came back...
** Test Type (also known as Malmot in some translations) The very first Zoanoid we see. All the guy wanted was to be human again to return to his family, so he goes and escapes from Cronos with the units to hand them over to [[spoiler: Agito, while having the false hope that he could become human again. Turns out Agito tricked him and because he left before the process could be complete, he can only live for a week.]] It's sadder in the 2005 anime, where we see one last shot of his family photo after his death.
** [[spoiler: Waferdanos and Li Yentsui's death. For all the trouble Li and Waferdanos went through to try to defeat Agito, even if one roots for Agito, it's hard to feel sorry for Li's efforts failing.]]

* UnfortunateImplications: The Zoanoid played by Jimmie Walker, [[UncleTomfoolery M.C Striker]]. Let's run down the list shall we? Designated comic relief character? Check. Stereotypical JiveTurkey mannerisms? Check. Absolutely ''absurd'' GagLips in his Zoanoid form? Check. ''[[TokenMinority The only black Zoanoid?]]'' Oh you'd better believe that's a check. [[spoiler: The only saving grace is his aversion of BlackGuyDiesFirst by just ''not dying.'']]

** For the movies: Striker survives the first movie, accompanied by the FBI agent Col. Castle. In the second movie, the government is much more aware of Chronos then before, with Atkins having a whole team. Striker was a double agent, leaving the final battle to contact Castle, before going on to sell Chronos out. Castle deemed Sean a SpannerInTheWorks and left him alone, which explains why Atkins didn't know about him.

* EvenBetterSequel: Guyver: Dark Hero is generally considered an improvement over the first movie due to a more serious tone, less camp and better action sequences and special effects. The presence of DavidHayter as the main chatacter also helps.

* {{Narm}}: Enzyme, perhaps the most effective Zoanoid, armed with Guyver-melting poison... is a giant fluffy bear with back-mounted spider-arms and an insect face. Then [[spoiler:Sho's father]] turns into one...
** The Zoanoid Rock Band in the anime. (Though thankfully improved in the 26-episode OVA)
