** Pretty much, this is HoYay: TheSeries.



** Though these wars are pretty pointless, since the staff have pretty much [[ShipSinking torpedoed]] Karina x Kotetsu from the getgo as an unreasonable ship, whereas their commentary on the subject of Barnaby x Kotetsu is that [[ShrugOfGod while you're free to draw your own conclusions if you ship them together]], since they don't really care either way, it will never be something fans can claim as actual canon either, and therefore makes [[DieForOurShip bashing people who don't think it is]] pointless.

Added DiffLines:

** A downplayed example (see UnpopularPopularCharacter) but AbridgedSeries edits of the series will often highlight how the universe is determined to tell Kotetsu he sucks and imply that people are in more danger with him there because of his habit of breaking things.

** It's stated in ''The Rising'' that Baranby is still dealing with the trauma of his past despite all outward appearances. It's just that he has Kotetsu to help him work through everything and has managed to grow a lot since they first became partners.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Biglobe ISP conducted a character popularity survey of most of the shows from the spring 2011 anime season. Behind Kotetsu (1'st place) and Barnaby (2'nd), Sky High was the most popular character in the series...[[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2011-06-13/biglobe-poll/favorite-character-in-spring-2011-anime and the entire season]].
** An in-universe case with Origami Cyclone, who gets a lot of sponsors and a high card sales rate despite placing last in the hero rankings.
** There had been plans to kill Rock Bison off, but his surprising popularity in the Japanese fandom meant that the idea was jossed and he ended up getting some extra lines and screen-time.

* ClicheStorm[=/=]SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Subject matter wise, this show's take on superheroes could have been fresh and ground-breaking... if it was made in the 80s/90s.
* CrackPairing[=/=]ShipsThatPassInTheNight: Antonio/Ivan is pretty popular on Pixiv. They have never been seen talking together even once.

** Along the same lines, Kotetsu's smartass remark about Lunatic having a glove on his face (and the fandom's subsequent adoption of "Palm-Face" as a FanNickname for him) has become a case of DudeNotFunny following the revelation in Episode 16 that the design is based on [[spoiler:the handprint burn scar on Yuri's face, left there by his father when Yuri burned him to death]].

* MemeticLoser: In-universe, Origami Cyclone is the lowest ranked hero due to his Shapeshifting powers being completely useless for Hero TV. Of course, [[TookALevelInBadass he wised up]] and used other means to fight.
** Rock Bison is treated as a ButtMonkey despite his powers. Before his fight with Jake Martinez, you could see that he's really ready to rumble and then, the scene cuts him to being utterly defeated.



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Despite setting up Lunatic as a very good rival to the main body of heroes, and giving him a sympathetic background... he never really does a whole lot. His clashes with the heroes are very rare over the course of the series, and it's easy to forget he ever existed by the time the series ends.

** Antonio Lopez aka Rock Bison is the only hero who doesn't have much focus throughout the entire show. Asides from being Kotetsu's friend and being the ButtMonkey, you know nothing about the guy unless you read the supplementary materials.


Added DiffLines:

** Yuri Petrov aka [[spoiler:Lunatic]] is a cross of StoicWoobie and IronWoobie after we found out that [[spoiler:his dad is Mr. Legend himself who slowly lose his powers and started abusing his wife and son instead. Then, Yuri had to kill his own dad in self-defense and his mom resented him]].

** "Now my body pil-- er, ''I'' can smell like Kotetsu!" / "I must have that delicious Oyaji Moe scent!" (See MemeticSexGod below).



* MemeticSexGod: Kotetsu gets a lot of fans ''very'' hot under the collar. Pixiv's taken to turning everything he says or does into a metric ton of porn, while [[http://i.imgur.com/CRFrd.jpg 2chan's bought out the entire stock of a brand of cologne]] simply because they wanted to know [[Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike what he smelled like]]. [[http://i.imgur.com/VDs9V.jpg 4chan also joined in soon after.]] (For added irony, the production team was originally afraid that Kotetsu wouldn't be well received by the audience because the they didn't expect viewers to find him physically attractive[[note]]To quote Ozaki: "Another problem was, as you said... it's been considered that any anime character with facial hair would be a 'bust'. Apparently Japanese women do not feel attracted to men with facial hair."[[/note]], among other things.)

** This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Elqt06wCjs0 video]] was just a [[BlackComedyRape slightly creepy and weird]] [[MemeticMutation thing]] before [[spoiler: Episode 19]].
