* SpiritualSuccessor: Mazinger Z can be seen as one to some of Mitsuteru Yokoyama's Super Robot works, such as Tetsujin 28-go and Giant Robo.

* ValuesDissonance: The reason why Kouji's [[StayInTheKitchen blatant sexism towards Sayaka]] (and the main reason why she was so {{Tsundere}} for him) had to be toned down as the Mazinsaga continued. It'd be very unfunny to have him say "girls must not fight and you are stupid for thinking otherwise" in Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}, after all.
** In fact, that characterization was more in line with his personality in the original manga.

** Many fans treat Kouji Kabuto as an arrogant, sexist JerkWithAHeartOfGold and a ChasteHero based on the first anime series, in spite of later retellings and remakes mostly based on his original manga incarnation where he was less of a sexist [[StayInTheKitchen toward Sayaka]] and less of a jerk, being nicer and tactful, yet also more of a pervert as befitting a GoNagai creation.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Like many GoNagai works, Mazinger Z was aimed at children and young teens in Japan, but judged too violent for children in other countries.

* UnwantedAssistance: Several times Kouji complained to Sayaka that she was getting in the way, hindering him and doing more harm than good. And even if he had a point, he wasn't exactly diplomatic about it... It was hilariously GenderFlipped with Jun and Boss later. Jun would be fighting, and Boss got in the way constantly in order to "help".

* EnsembleDarkHorse: In a meta sense. Go Nagai originally made this simply to blow off steam while writing the [[CrapsackWorld horribly depressing]] ''{{Devilman}}'' manga and directing the anime. Mazinger ''blew'' Devilman out of the water in terms of popularity, which Nagai always had [[CreatorBreakdown odd feelings]] about.

** Dr. Hell is a LargeHam and a CompleteMonster wanted to TakeOverTheWorld to force the whole humankind to [[KneelBeforeZod bow down to him]], but in ''Anime/ShinMazinger'' he was actually trying to save the world (although he thought conquering it was the proper way to accomplish that). Some fans actually feel SympathyForTheDevil, thinking it was unfair he worked so hard, scheming complex plans and strategies and crafting incredible scientific breakthroughs only to be defeated, crushed and humiliated over and over and over by a loud-mouthed, Jerkass IdiotHero with a cool HumongousMecha. People who know about his Backstory also tends to see him as TheWoobie.
