** [[MadScientist Dr. Rotwang]], a robot engineer and former college of Barnaby's parents, was first introduce in episode 15 as a [[MonsterOfTheWeek one-shot villain]] who creates [[RoboticPsychopath Cis]] and unleashes her to wreak chaos upon [[TheCity Sternberg]] , and he [[InLoveWithYourCarnage expresses nothing but admiration at his creation's carnage]]. He later appears in the last 3 episodes as TheDragon to the aforementioned BigBad, building robots for him to replace the NEXT heroes. Rotwang also kidnaps said heroes, puts {{explosive leash}}es explosive leashes on them, and forces them to go through a series of {{sadistic choice}}s [[ForTheEvulz for his amusement]]. Should Kotetsu and Barnaby fail to defeat his latest creation, H-01, the others leashes would explode. Rotwang later admits that he was going to activate the leashes whether or not they did his tasks, and attempts to do so after the duo manages to defeat H-01. Though lacking any power of his own, Rotwang was a [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters cruel and hateful human being]] solely motivated by his FantasticRacism against the NEXT, managing to rival his boss in sheer depravity.

** The BigBad, [[spoiler:Albert Maverick is seemingly the kind and friendly benefactor of superheroes and the founder of Hero TV]]. In fact, he was the secret leader of the crime syndicate Ouroboros and was involved in many criminal activities. To make things easier for himself, he presented NEXT as marketable to gain them fans and create a superhero legacy, all the while hiding his being a NEXT himself whose power was MindRape. He would murder the parents of future hero Barnaby Brooks to [[BigBadFriend mold the boy into his perfect pawn]], rewriting his memories every time Barnaby got too close to the truth. When he realized Barnaby's partner Kotetsu was too close to the truth, he had Barnaby's mother figure Samantha murdered and [[FrameUp framed Kotetsu]], wiping the memories of everyone who knew his superhero identity. After this failed, he revealed he fully intended to wipe out his own NEXT and replace them with more easily controllable robots created by Rotwang. Feeling nothing but egotistical disgust at the doctor, the second his safety was compromised, he [[spoiler: [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness murdered Rotwang]]]] after revealing he himself was NEXT. Finally, he [[WouldHurtAChild puts a gun to Kaede's head and tries to use her as a hostage]].
** [[MadScientist Dr. Rotwang]] thrives on a FantasticRacism for the superpowered NEXT. First introduced as a one-shot villain creating robots to take on the heroes, Rotwang appeared in the final episodes as the partner to the BigBad and has one goal on his mind: wiping out the NEXT and replacing them with his robots. Rotwang mocked the very concept of friendship while trying to kill the city of Sternbild's superheroes, calling their friendship and devotion to one another "pathetic." Hateful, cruel and genocidal, Rotwang is truly a monster in even this idealistic show.

Added DiffLines:

* CaptainObviousReveal: Yuri is [[spoiler: Lunatic]]. [[ObviouslyEvil You could tell that he's on the wrong side]] [[https://antiotaku.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/tigerbunny2005.png just by looking at him]], and it's not helped by his voice actor making no effort to disguise his voice.

* ClicheStorm: Subject matter wise, this show's take on superheroes could have been fresh and ground-breaking... if it was made in the 80s/90s.

** It's even dumber than that. Maverick had Kotetsu's complete trust when he decided to put his plan in motion. Kotetsu actually called ''him'' about the holes in the story, but instead of suspecting him, he came to the conclusion that some outside party was to blame. Maverick could've easily rolled with this by framing [[spoiler:Ouroborous, [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness who have little use to him at this point, being more of a liability than anything else.]] He didn't even ''need'' to mindwipe anybody!]]]]

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Edward, seemingly meant to be seen as a TragicVillain who let hatred consume him, becomes really hard to feel sorry for when his hatred is far from justifiable, blaming (and even trying [[spoiler:to ''kill'']]) his only friend for something that's almost entirely ''his'' fault. The fact is, [[spoiler:Origami Cyclone's actions were perfectly understandable.]] Neither of them had ever seen real combat in their entire lives and now Edward is [[spoiler:jumping into an extremely dangerous situation with total abandon.]] Most anyone in the man's position would have a hard time leaping into action, let alone when dealing with armed thugs.
