**Eugene Grant, from "Missing Cat", is a truly despicable MadScientist convinced that [[AGodAmI he is a god]] due to his recent discoveries in transmutation. To constantly improve his alchemic transmutations, Grant kidnaps innocents by the dozens and transforms them into [[AndIMustScream pain-stricken]] [[BodyHorror abominations]] that he keeps alive and on display for no particular reason. When many of his old partners abandon him because of his depravity, Grant has one mauled by one of his monsters, and kidnaps two of his former compatriots' son Roy before [[WouldHurtAChild turning the boy]] into [[BalefulPolymorph a cat]], following this up by murdering said couple in front of their son. Grant proceeds to transform Roy into a monstrous chimera, then sics it on Roger Smith while he holds Smith's partner Dorothy at gunpoint, ordering Roy to destroy first Smith, then all else in his path. Despite being a VillainOfTheWeek, Eugene Grant handily stood out as the most wicked and irredeemable monster in the series alongside Alan Gabriel.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The opening theme sounds suspiciously similar to Queen's ''Film/FlashGordon'' theme. To the point that when Bandai remastered the series on DVD, they had to replace it with a new song. Meanwile, the second season's opening, "Respect," never even made it to the first DVD release - it was almost a note-for-note copy of Gerry Anderson's "{{UFO}}." Both openings ended up airing on Adult Swim.

** The series has often been described as "Batman ''with mechs''". In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'', Batman himself does indeed have a mech. And then even later, in the comics, the mantle of Batman was passed to Commissioner Gordon...who operates in a mech suit.

* CultClassic: While not nearly as popular as manga that would come out in the following decade, it has a cult following. It being the last fully hand drawn anime series before its second season as well as its westernized style gives it a unique identity in the anime world.

It also helps that Cartoon Network loved the show so much that they created a second season for it.

** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52BcC9Qzl-Q "Stand a Chance"]]'' plays during nearly all of Roger's actions scenes and is practically his Megaduex's victory fanfare.
