* TheUntwist: [[spoiler:Prince Igam is actually a woman. Not much of a spoiler, considering "he" was obviously played by a female, with no attempt whatsoever made to disguise the face or voice... and it doesn't help matters much that the title of the episode where this is "revealed" is "Prince Igam, you're a woman!", as though it weren't obvious enough to begin with.]] Really, TheReveal is the first time you realize it was ever intended to be a secret. However, we do learn much more about her that goes on to be quite relevant to the rest of the series.
** Made fantastically weird in the Brazilian dub. Igan is still dubbed by a voice actress, but she does not make any effort to make her voice sound a bit more male. Also, some fans are creeped out by the fact that she also voiced [[Series/ElChavoDelOcho Doña Florinda]].
** To a lesser extent that Takeru's girlfriend is really the princess of Tube, which we find out early in but the Maskmen themselves are ignorant of for most of the show.

* AbortedArc: In Episode 43, Akira loses his eyesight but manages to rescue his friends in the nick of time. [[spoiler: But the blindness doesn't get cured right away, leaving Akira open to be possessed by the disembodied armor of Armor Doggler, transforming him into Underground Knight Unas. Commander Sugata remarks that the onlyway he could have even be susceptible is if Akira was from the Underground Empire. Everyone else is in total shock and it looks like a big reveal is coming up]]. This arc lasts two more episodes but is then eclipsed by the reveal of [[spoiler: Prince Igam being a woman]] which sets the track for the homestretch of the series. However, [[spoiler: Akira is turned back to normal, and the question of is true heritage [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot is never brought up again]]]].

* AnticlimaxBoss: [[spoiler:Lethal Doggler's]] final fight against the Galaxy Robo... isn't very much different from your average MonsterOfTheWeek battle, only an evil face appears after he explodes- and then the face explodes, too.

** This series notably ran concurrently alongside ''Series/KamenRiderBlack''. 16 years later, ''Kamen Rider'' and ''Super Sentai'' would run alongside each other in the ''Series/SuperHeroTime'' programming block. This got lampshaded during ''Film/KamenRiderXSuperSentaiSuperHeroTaisen'', where Black and the Maskman teamed up to fight Shadow Moon and [[Series/KamenRiderBlackRX General Jark]].

* CompleteMonster: Emperor Zeba. Tube's dictator, who has absolutely no compunction about killing or punishing his subordinates. His monstrosity is finally revealed in the final episodes where it turns out that he is [[spoiler:actually the spawn of Rizal Doggler, a malignant creature who tried to usurp the throne and was defeated by the original Tube royal family. After which he ate his dying father in order to become stronger. Driven by a seething hatred against humans from both sides of the crust, it proceeds to destroy the rest of the original family save Ial and Igam, taking over as emperor and corrupting the peaceful Tube into becoming a militaristic Crapsack World using enslaved underground humans in an attempt to reach the surface world and extend its malicious grip.]]

to:

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: A lot of the solo mecha component footage was pretty good looking, probably because they wanted to showcase the first 5-piece mecha. Even the carrier looked kickass, with the rolling tank treads on it. It's just too bad they didn't fight on their own more often.
