->''"Looks like the only ones who can pilot Getter Robo are either superior pilots…'' ''[[CrazyAwesome or insane!"]]''
-->--'''Hayato Jin'''

A classic HumongousMecha manga, created in 1974 by manga author KenIshikawa, who had previously collaborated with GoNagai in the production of his smash-hit series ''MazingerZ''. Where ''Mazinger'' pioneered the concept of a HumongousMecha piloted by a human, ''Getter Robo'' effectively created the CombiningMecha with its three-part machine, which required the three pilots to work in harmony in order to work at its best. Five arcs of the manga were created before KenIshikawa's death in 2006 - Getter Robo, Getter Robo G, Getter Robo Go (created 17 years after ''G''), Shin Getter Robo and Getter Robo Āḥ. Though they all form a single coherent continuity, there is also a significant TimeSkip between them and each series is vastly different in tone, technology level and setting, and usually involves the next generation of Getter Robo pilots. In the thirty years since its creation, ''Getter Robo'' has had a number of spinoffs and alternate tellings, which, while not direct adaptions of the manga, usually feature the same characters but in different storylines and settings. These include...

* ''Getter Robo'': The original TV series, wherein the primary antagonists are the Dinosaur Empire, the remnants of the dinosaurs who escaped extinction by hiding deep below the Earth's surface. When they attack the Saotome Laboratory, home of Getter Robo, Professor Saotome enlists the aid of three of his daughter Michiru's classmates to help fight off the invasion. The team consists of Ryoma Nagare, a hot-blooded soccer star; Hayato Jin, a quiet, handsome loner; and Musashi Tomoe, a portly martial artist friend of Ryoma's whose cowardice hides a heart of gold. The series details the team's battles with the Dinosaur Empire, culminating in Musashi making a HeroicSacrifice to finish the enemy off.

* ''Getter Robo G'': The direct sequel to the original. With the Dinosaurs defeated, Earth is menaced by the Hundred Demon Empire, who wish to conquer the world and subjugate humanity. Saotome builds a new Getter and the team recruits Benkei Kuruma, a pacifistic softball coach to fill the empty third seat. Was (partially) dubbed into English as ''Starvengers'', part of the ForceFive animation block.

* ''Getter Robo Go'': A 90s version of the series, Go is a lighter adaptation of Ishikawa's original manga with entirely new character designs. Subsequently, it remains the "black sheep" of the Getter franchise for lacking any of Ishikawa's trademark style and edginess, despite the fact that he and Nagai cooperated on the script. The original manga was much more well-received, and was briefly released in English by Viz Media as ''Venger Robo'', a nod to ''Starvengers''.

* ''Getter Robo Armageddon'': Also known as ''Shin Getter Robo - Sekai Saigo no Hi'', Armageddon is an OVA set in a world where Professor Saotome apparently goes rogue and allies with the monstrous, saurian creatures called Invaders, producing a bio-organic Getter monster dubbed "Shin Dragon"; and the OnlyOne who can stop him might be Ryoma, who was imprisoned years ago for [[NotAsYouKnowThem murdering the good Professor]]. When the United Nations fires a nuclear missile at Shin Dragon, the resulting fallout kills 90% of the world's population. Almost a decade later, a new team of Getter pilots formed by Benkei's adoptive daughter Kei and his right-hand Gai, as well as a clone made by Saotome named Go, battle the Invaders with the super-powerful Shin Getter Robo, eventually joining up with the original team. Second animated series brought to the U.S., courtesy of AD Vision, in 2001. This series is also the one credited to finally getting the [[SerialEscalation over-the-topness]] of the manga into animated form, and is a perennial favorite of fans of the franchise. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Imagawa was originally chosen as director, but was fired after three episodes]] [[ExecutiveMeddling for unknown reasons.]] It is a common misconception that it is a sequel to a RadioDrama called ''Moon Wars'', but that was not produced until after the end of the OVA.

* ''Shin Getter Robo vs Neo Getter Robo'': An AlternateContinuity sequel to the original series, where Musashi's HeroicSacrifice destroys all of Manhattan, causing the government to crack down on Getter Energy research. Several years later, the remnants of the Dinosaur Empire resurface, and Hayato assembles a new Getter Team to pilot the Neo Getter Robo and fight off the enemy. Some fans consider this series a redemption of ''Getter Robo Go'', as the team of Go, Shou and Gai are lifted almost directly from the manga version, with Neo Getter being a revised version of Getter Go.
** Dynamic Super Robots Soushingekki: Released as a three-part special with the episodes of ''Shin Getter Robo vs Neo Getter Robo'', this little special features every single Super Robot made by Go Nagai (more or less) teaming up to punch things and generally promote the upcoming ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'' OVA.

* ''New Getter Robo'': Essentially a more faithful adaptation of Ishikawa's original ''Getter Robo'' manga, with some scenes lifted directly from it. The Dinosaur Empire is skipped altogether, with the Oni (or 100 Demon Empire,) getting put front and center, and the entire Getter Team is much more violent (bordering on psychopathic) as well as being older than their predecessors. The Getter is also redesigned, but fans tend to refer to it as "New Getter" in order to distinguish it from the original, which appears in ''New'' as a prototype. Is generally considered a good starting point for new viewers because of its straightforwardness and faithfulness to the manga; conveniently, this was brought over by Creator/{{Geneon}} Entertainment in 2005 and is still available from many online retailers.

It's a common misconception that the ''Getter Robo'' series is the work of GoNagai, when in fact it's almost entirely the work of KenIshikawa. GoNagai only pitched the concept of combining jets (as opposed to combining cars, the original idea) to Ishikawa, while the rest was made without his involvement. Nevertheless, Getter Robo is now closely linked in the minds of people who think about that sort of thing with Nagai's ''[[MazingerZ Mazinger]]'' trilogy. Do note that Getter Robo IS considered part of the Dynamic Publishing family, so its crossovers with Go Nagai's robots have pseudo-canonical status. That, and most [[SuperRobot super robot]] fans LOVE having those robots mix it up.

[[Characters/GetterRobo Character Sheet]] is under construction and needs more WikiMagic.
----
!!This show provides examples of the following tropes:


* AbnormalAmmo: One of the weapons used by the original Getter Robo, in the Anthology series, is a "Missile Machine Gun" which is a chain gun huge enough to use missiles for bullets. That speaks for itself.
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: An AxCrazy cuts down a Shinto Shrine (and the building its in) with a sword in New Getter Robo.
* AbusivePrecursors: The Dinosaur Empire and the Oni Empire.
* AceCustom: Ryouma's infamous Black Getter from ''Armageddon,'' which he custom built from the wreckage of a regular Getter Robo, mainly involving lots of black paint and spikes.
** Actually, the reason his Getter Robo is black is because the paint burned upon reentry into Earth's atmosphere. This makes it even more badass.
* ActionGirl: Shou from ''Getter Robo Go'' and her re-appearance in ''Shin vs Neo''; Kei (being basically [[{{Expy}} a replacement]] for Shou [[WhamEpisode with a twist]]) from ''Getter Armageddon'' also qualifies. Basically, if the second Getter Team has a woman in it, she's probably going to be awesome.
* AdultFear: Armageddon has this is shovelfulls.
** Professor Saotome gets a double dose of this, [[spoiler:first losing his daughter Michiru to a horrific failed combination of the Getter Robo G, and then discovering the Invader infection in her body upon autopsy]]. No wonder he was so upset and vengeful.
** Benkei faces this when protecting young Genki from angry shelterees in the bomb shelter.
** A female polar colonist is forced to watch her brother get horribly mutated and eventually killed as a consequence of an Invader attack.
* AfterTheEnd: Setting of most of ''Armageddon'' OVA and the manga [[spoiler: following the conclusion of ''Getter Robo Go''.]]
* AlienInvasion
* AlternateContinuity: Every anime adaption and the ''Getter Robo DASH'' manga
** Many fans theorize, based on the endings of ''Armageddon'' and ''New'', that all the continuities might actually form a sort of [[TheMultiverse multiverse]], which would mean every series is actually canon in a way. [[RuleOfCool YEAH.]]
* AmazonChaser: Misogynist {{Jerkass}} Schwarzkof falls for Shou (as does [[LesYay Linda]]) due to her piloting skill, strength and strong character.
* AmericansAreCowboys: Jack King and Texas Mack.
* AnachronismStew: Dark Capital arc of ''New Getter''. Of course its justified, since this is what leads Hayato to suspect someone is messing up the timestream.
* AnAxeToGrind: Most forms of Getter-1 use one or more of these.
* AnimeThemeSong: Notably, the original TV series and ''Getter Robo G'' shared one theme, simply titled "Getter Robo!"
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: Everything in the universe has a consciousness, apparently. The Getter Rays themselves are [[spoiler: the living embodiment of "evolution", or looked at another way, life itself]].
* AntiHero: Ryouma would rather brawl and train in martial arts than anything else. His Hot Blood never cools off, which makes interacting with other people just a bit difficult.
** Hayato is introduced ''tearing a guy's face off'' for deserting his revolution, and continues to be extremely cold-blooded in his decisions in later series, such as having soldiers defuse elaborately booby-trapped nuclear bombs by trial-and-error.
* AntiVillain: The Bug Aliens from Shin Getter Robo manga. [[spoiler: While their dialogue is very villain hammy they're trying to stop the Getter Emperor from annihilating every other life force in the universe. Their home planet is destroyed, their first attempt to erase Shin Getter from history was by direct attacks against Saotome's lab. And out of only desperation the Admiral of the fleet allows the remaining ships to flee and attempts a kamikaze attack against planet Earth.]]
* AppliedPhlebotinum: Getter Rays, which are essentially AWizardDidIt combined with RuleOfCool.
* ArtEvolution: Ishikawa's style in 1974, when he created the original manga, looks almost identical to GoNagai's. When he revived the series in 1991 with ''Getter Robo Go'' his style looked completely different and distinct, with more detail and stronger anatomy.
** This ends up creating some awkward shifts in the ''Getter Robo Saga'' manga compilations, which inserted new bonus chapters in between the original material, meaning the art goes back and forth between Ishikawa's 70's and 90's art styles.
* ArtShift: During certain intense moments, the art shifts to a black and white (or black and green), extremely sketchy style. This has become well-known and homaged/parodied by several shows.
* AssimilationPlot: [[spoiler: Getter Robo Go. Okay, not exactly, but this is what happens to ANYTHING exposed to too much Getter energy. Also the philosophical speeches given by the conscious Getter fall very much into this.]]
** Touched upon or is one of the main plot points in all of the [=OVAs=]. [[spoiler: Notably, unlike the manga, OVA characters decisively reject the idea of being assimilated by the Getter Rays without fail.]]
* AwesomeButImpractical: Stoner Sunshine in Armageddon. It's used a total of three times, and it fails two of those times. Meanwhile, Getter Beam is used frequently, and backfires only once. In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' games, it is much more reliable and effective.
* AxCrazy: Hayato starts out this way in many adaptions, and Ryoma, appropriately enough, backs up his CrazyAwesome with actual axe use. [[spoiler: There's also the fact that at least three versions of Getter-1, which all wield axes, have gone absolutely batshit nuts]]
* {{Badass}}: ''Literally'' a requirement for piloting a Getter Robo - the recruitment process is ridiculously dangerous and demanding to ensure this, and non-badasses have been shown to get severely injured or even die from just the stress of trying to pilot the insanely fast machines. Even then however, almost all of the non-Getter pilots in the series seem to be total badasses as well.
* BadassArmFold: Getter Dragon was the first HumongousMecha used the pose. It seemed so downright badass it was copied for many mechas, including ''Anime/GunBuster''
* BadassGrandpa: As Hayato gets older with each subsequent incarnation, he's slowly but surely creeping towards this.
** Professor Saotome himself has a few incredibly badass moments here and there. In the original manga, he piloted one of the Getter machines and fought several battles until Musashi took his place due to Saotome's old body not being able to withstand the machine's stress anymore.
** Professor Shikishima, in all his glorious insanity.
* BadassLongcoat: Ryoma in ''Armageddon'', and Hayato in his role as a commander.
* BareHandedBladeBlock: The original ''GetterRobo'' manga provides possibly one of the earliest examples when Ryoma fights assassins sent by Saotome to test his fighting skills (reproduced in ''New Getter''). Unlike most examples of this trope, Ryoma gets his palms cut badly in the process.
* BeamOWar: Last episode of ''New Getter''.
* BeneathTheEarth: The Dinosaur Empire, primarily
* BerserkMode: [[spoiler: Getter Robo Hien]], is also a common side effect of Getter Rays exposure.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: In ''Armageddon'', [[spoiler: Michiru. She preferred to mess with a test flight and die rather than be killed by the Invader infection she was carrying]].
** [[spoiler:This was a bad way for her to go, and screwed over others, but she may have already been being influenced by the infection, just not completely taken over.]]
** [[spoiler: When you think about it actually she may have killed herself to prevent the invader from taker her over completly, which, as Professor Saotome's daughter, would've caused so many problems. So it's more like DyingAsYourself. Still a bad way to go all things considered]]
* BeyondTheImpossible: . The manga and anime were ''the'' main inspiration for ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann.'')
->''"So much for the laws of physics!"''
-->--'''Hayato Jin ''', ''GetterRobo Armageddon''
* BiggerIsBetter: Part of the logic behind Getter Rays. As they grow in power (or "evolve"), the machines grow in size. And they can get ''really'' big.
* BigBrotherInstinct: In ''Armaggedon'', [[TheStoic Go]] behaves this way towards [[ActionGirl Kei]]. [[spoiler: Well, he ''is'' an OppositeSexClone of Kei's deceased older sister, Michiru.]]
* BigOlEyebrows. Very common among the cast.
** Notable on ''Armageddon'' Ryoma. Between the eyebrows and hair, he has the GAR equivalent to RapunzelHair.
* BodyHorror: The Invaders, the Oni, the plant monsters from ''Hien,'' the insect creatures from the ''Āḥ'' manga... hell, nearly every Getter Robo enemy race can possess and deform other creatures (mostly humans) into horrible monsters
* BraggingThemeTune
* TheBusCameBack: So you may have wondered, while reading Getter Robo Go, where General Bat went off to - after all, he was still alive at the end of the original manga, and [[spoiler: the Dinosaur Empire was the BiggerBad of that saga.]] Well, as it would turn out, [[spoiler: HesJustHiding with most of the Dinosaur Empire, and would return in Arc.]]
* ByThePowerOfGreyskull: "Change Getter (insert: 1, 2, 3) ! Switch on!"
* {{BFS}}: in this case, a Big Fragging Axe for Getter-1 and a Big Fragging Drill for Getter-2, especially their Shin versions.
* {{BFG}}: Some versions of Getter Robo either carry giant guns or incorporate them into their design. Perhaps the most flashy example(s) belong to Getter Robo Hien from the latest manga, which has a handheld {{BFG}} and ''two'' built-in ones, although those are move of a dual WaveMotionGun
** One of the American mecha in Getter Robo Hien gets a {{BFG}} made from ''the transformed Statue of Liberty''.
** And Texas Mack's cannon, which is so powerful that it can't even be used on ground targets or it'll obliterate the surrounding area. ''[[GratuitousEnglish "This cannon has too much high power man!"]]''.
** The Russian transforming mobile fortress Volga from ''Getter Robo Go'' manga has the alternate mode that is practically one humongous cannon. Even the 840-mm main gun of the American mobile fortress Texas from the same series seems small by comparison.
* BugWar: ''Shin Getter Robo'' and ''Getter Robo Āḥ''.
* ButchLesbian: Linda, Great Britain's main pilot. Even her mecha looks like a muscular woman.
* CallingYourAttacks: It's a ''SuperRobot'' show, ain't it? Lampshaded in ''Shin vs. Neo'', where the eponymous robot was designed this way on purpose to simplify operation. Squarely averted in the manga continuity, where they usually use the moves without calling names, though there is still a lot of general yelling.
* CanonImmigrant: Dr. Saotome originally piloted Getter-3 himself. After the anime's creation and Musashi's popularity, he showed up in the manga to take the machine for himself.
** Even weirder is Genki, also from the anime... who just appears in the manga with zero introduction.
* CapedMecha: Getter Robo (Specifically, Getter 1) and Black Getter Robo in ''Armageddon''.
* CerebusSyndrome: Getter Robo Go and later installments were much darker than the light hearted fun of the original Getter Robo series.
* CharlesAtlasSuperPower: Ryoma apparently specializes in the art of [[http://mangafox.com/manga/getter_robo_go/v06/c002/last.html breaking dinosaurs with his bare hands]].
* ChestBlaster: GETTER BEAM!
* ColonyDrop: [[spoiler: The Andromeda Flow Country try this with their enormous battleship, in the manga]].
* ColossusClimb: In the first volume of ''Getter Robo Go'', a {{Robeast}} is going on a rampage through a city. Not having -yet- a HumongousMecha to stop it, Go and Sho climbed up its body [[GrandTheftPrototype to reach the cockpit and disabling the pilot]], all the while as avoiding its CombatTentacles and giant pincers.
* CoolShip: When it isn't combined into a HumongousMecha, the Getter Emperor is three very cool ships surrounded by countless other cool ships. There's also the Texas, from ''Getter Robo Go''.
* CombiningMecha: The TropeMaker. Getter Robo is also the ''ultimate'' example of this trope, as it can apparently combine with absolutely anything and make it work.
* CompositeCharacter: There's two in two of the adaptations.
** Musashibo Benkei in ''New'', a composite of, obviously, Musashi and Benkei.
** Kei in ''Armageddon'', a composite of THREE(!) characters: Kei Minamikaze, Sho Tachibana [[spoiler:and [[GenderFlip Genki Saotome]]]].
* ContinuityNod: There have been a lot in the OVAs for the old series and the manga, but probably the most notable in series nod was in Getter Arc. [[MadScientist Shikishima]] was getting a weapon for Takuma Nagare, and when Takuma picked one, it turns out to be the same one Ryoma (his father) used waaaaaaaay back during the Dinosaur Empire invasion in the original manga.
* CosmicHorrorStory: ''Armageddon'' and ''New'', as well as the manga depending on your perspective.
* {{Crossover}}: 70's anime has TheMovie crossover with GreatMazinger, while Getter Robo G anime has two - one with Great and another with both it and UFORoboGrendizer at the same time. There is also manga in which classic version of Getter and it's pilots ecounters Manga/{{Devilman}}. GoNagai [[http://nagai-again.discutforum.com/t235-manga-mao-dante-tai-getter-robot-g-2011 has done]] a sequel to that last one with Getter Robo G and ''Manga/MaoDante''.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Many, many examples abound, both for the humans and the enemies alike. For example:
** In ''Armageddon'', [[spoiler:Michiru dies from being crushed between Getter Machines during a botched combination sequence]]. Invaders also die in a particularly nasty fashion, grotesquely swelling up and developing tumors and ''extra eyes'' before bursting.
** In the first manga series, numerous human prisoners die from the horrific experiments the Dinosaur Empire was performing upon them.
** In the ColdOpen of ''Shin Vs Neo'', Musashi ''melts'' inside the cockpit before being vaporised by the Getter-explosion, and villainwise, all the cyborg Dinosaurs he fought were killed by the Getter in brutal fashion, from being torn apart by Getter 2, sliced to ribbons by Getter 1, and finally ''melting'' from exposure to the raw Getter radiation pouring from the gaping wound in Getter 1's torso.
* CurbStompBattle: The final battle between Seimei and the Getter team in ''New Getter'' goes both ways. Seimei dominates when Ryoma is missing, meaning the Getter Robo can't draw out its full power, but once he [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0UanKUVLNU returns...]] This example overlaps with RoaringRampageOfRevenge and OhCrap at the ''least...''
* CyberneticsWillEatYourSoul: Is there ''any'' Getter pilot who didn't fuse with the machine at some point? Also, the BadFuture seen in ''New'', where humans became a simple part of their mech (they even show a newborn baby, complete with cables and half a cockpit growing out of it) and are constantly fighting each other or [[IAmAHumanitarian scavenging corpses for spare parts]]...
* DarkerAndEdgier: New GetterRobo, among other changes such as skipping the first set of enemies from the manga, ages all characters by four years and adds plenty of new GrimDark elements that weren't there in the original manga. Since the manga was already quite bloody from the start this means its UpToEleven.
** ''Getter Robo Go'' is considerably darker compared to the original manga. Even though ''Getter Robo'' had lots of gore, heroic sacrifices, and showed children dying ''Go'' is much bleaker. And the more realistic artwork and mechanical-monsters make it all the grimmer.
* DeadlyEuphemism: Among the pilots in the Getter Robo army, being killed in action is referred to as "embarrassment".
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Dinosaurs? Not a problem. Giant carnivorous plants? No sweat! Shapeshifting aliens? No biggie. An empire of demons? Happens all the time. Even ancient primal ''gods'' are no match for the might of Getter Robo.
* DifficultButAwesome: In many, many incidents and discussions in-story, the Getter Machines are said to be incredibly good and have amazing performance, but they are so demanding that only the toughest or most {{badass}} of pilots can even withstand the immense G-Forces involved when piloting them. In fact, one of the test pilots of the Neo Getter actually failed to initiate the combination sequence because he could not endure the stresses on his body! Despite this "flaw", the Getter machines are indeed ferociously powerful and effective when piloted by the extremely tough and/or {{badass}} protagonists.
* DoAnythingRobot: All versions of Getter Robo do absurd things, but the manga version of Shin Getter Robo is ''hax incarnate''.
* DrillTank
* DrivingQuestion: In ''Armageddon'', who murdered Professor Saotome and who was responsible for Michiru's death.
* {{Eagleland}}: America's Super Robot is Texas Mack, which looks like a giant cowboy and is piloted by an [[{{Engrish}} Engrish-spouting]] cowboy named Jack King and his sister Mary. Borderline offensive in ''Getter Robo'', but toned down in ''Neo Getter Robo'', resulting in this version of Jack and his machine becoming fan favorites.
** Not to mention it rides around on a giant robot horse called ''Pasture King'', piloted by Jack's ''ranch dog.''
** In the manga and ''Armageddon'' however, America's Super Robot is the less offensive Stilva, which is a transforming stealth bomber piloted by two adult soldiers.
*** Yeah, the robot's not that offensive, but the pilot claims that he hates "Asians, Indians, Mexicans, and niggers" in the english translations of the manga. He's racist, crude, and hates everyone aside from Americans--though he turns around and admits he was wrong eventually.
* EldritchAbomination: The Invaders from ''Armageddon''.
** As powerful and horrifying like they were, they pale compared to the most terrible and most powerful cosmic abomination from the manga. It is immensely powerful. It's so large it dwarfs planets. Its mere passing destroys worlds. It is told that it is able to devour a whole universe. One single beam blast can blow a planet to dust and its fists can crush tears in the fabric of space-time. Vast armies have tried destroying it only to be easily obliterated in turn without even managing damaging it slightly. Its name? [[spoiler:[[http://www.mangareader.net/shin-getter-robo/9/21 Getter]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/shin-getter-robo/9/23 Emperor]],]] the final evolution of [[spoiler:Getter Robo.]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/shin-getter-robo/7/57 The narration goes as far as to state]]: "The voice that quakes the universe itself was indeed that of [[spoiler:Ryoma Nagare]]"
* EmperorScientist: Rando from ''Getter Robo Go''.
* EnemyMine: You know the situation is bad by Getter Robo Arc, because the Earth is so threatened [[spoiler: the freaking DINOSAUR EMPIRE is willing to work with the Saotome Labs to save it.]]
* TheEngineer: Gai.
* EnthusiasmVersusStoicism
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: The Dinosaur Empire, who feature extensively in every series of the manga except for ''Getter Robo Hien''.
** ''Āḥ'' gives us GETTERSAURUS, a giant robot dinosaur piloted by dinosaurs.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Early chapters of the manga feature a town where the humans start reverting to apes.
* EverythingsBetterWithSamurai: the Dark Capital arc of ''New Getter Robo''
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: The Beetle.
* EvilerThanThou: The Hundred Demon Empire to the Dinosaur Empire.
* EvilVersusOblivion: See EnemyMine.
* ExpositoryThemeTune: "Gan! Gan! Gan! Gan! Youth burns with a crimson fire! Getter Spark! Lightning up the skies! Behold! The transformation! Getter Robo!"
* ExpressiveMask: Stilva mimmicks its pilots expressions and even has a tongue and an uvula. Also toyed with in a rather disturbing manner near the end of ''Getter Robo Go'' where [[spoiler: Shin Getter Robo, after absorbing Gou, takes on his face]].
* {{Expy}}: Ryoma's costume and a few aspects of his personality in the ''Armageddon'' OVA were taken from the protagonist of ''Maju Sensen'', another manga by KenIshikawa. Stinger and Corwen from the same series were also characters from ''Maju Sensen''.
** Also, in that same series, Go and Kei are expies of ''Getter Robo Go's'' Go and Kei. Gai still remains pretty much the same, though.
** The final enemy in Armageddon as well as the four Oni Gods are from ''KyomuSenkiMiroku''.
* EvolutionaryLevels: A major theme in the series, since Getter Rays are the actual power of evolution itself. They're used, variously, as a metaphor for progress, survival/life, and certain Buddhist/eastern ideals which Ishikawa was fond of. An extreme example of this trope in action occurs when they terraform Mars into the new Earth-- within an instant.
* EyeScream: Happens several times, particularly when Hayato - and his razor-sharp fingernails - are involved)
* FaceDeathWithDignity: Dignity might be the wrong word, since he's still his [[EvilIsHammy usual, frothing self,]] but [[spoiler:Emperor Gore]] accepts his death and wants to die with honour.
* FemmeFatalons: ''Male'' example with Hayato.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero: Ryoma or Go.
** TheLancer: Hayato or Sho/Kei.
** TheSmartGuy: Professor Saotome or Hayato when he's team leader(like in ''Go'' and ''Armageddon'').
** TheBigGuy: Musashi/Benkei or Gai.
** TheChick: Michiru.
** TagalongKid: Genki. [[spoiler: Unless it's ''Armaggedon'', where Genki is Kei, who gets upgraded to the ActionGirl.]]
* [[{{Foreshadowing}} Foreshadowing]]: [[spoiler: The idea of the Getter Robo becoming a threat to the entire universe was implied as early as the ''Getter Robo G'' manga, where the source of Emperor Burai's power was a crashed alien ship sent back to destroy Getter Robo before it became too powerful, which was later confirmed in the ''Shin Getter Robo'' manga to be a vessel from one of the many alien fleets futilely struggling against the Getter Emperor]].
* FreudianExcuse: Schwarts has one in ''Getter Robo Go'' for his racism. His grandfather was killed at Pearl Harbor and his dad's business was put out of business by a Japanese company.
* FullFrontalAssault: Kei in ''Armaggedon''. JustifiedTrope since [[spoiler: she just was coming back from an OutOfClothesExperience in which she found the equally naked Go for the first time.]]
* GlassCannon: In general, most of the Getter Robo mecha tend to take very visible damage in the course of battling. In particular, ''Armageddon'' and ''Shin VS Neo'' have plenty of lavishly-detailed battle damage marks and scars forming as the Getters get crushed and even get their arms ripped off. While they can exhibit very impressive and outright terrifying offensive potential, the Getters tend to get beat-up far more than many traditional Super Robots.
* GoodAllAlong:[[spoiler:Professor Saotome in Armageddon.]]
* AGoodWayToDie: In ''[[GetterRobo Shin Getter Robo vs Neo Getter Robo]]'' (adapted scene by scene from the manga), Musashi has the most dignified death of all his incarnations, gleefully taking the Dinosaur Empire with him as he goes.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: [[spoiler: Gai]], when he realizes the true nature of the Getter Rays.
* GreenLanternRing: Getter Rays.
* GoingCritical
* {{Gonk}}: A common trait of Getter-3 pilots and minor characters, due to Ishikawa's cartoony art style.
* GoodIsNotNice: They're freaking sociopaths.
* HeroicSacrifice: Several, though the most famous is undoubtedly [[spoiler:Musashi]], who dies in multiple continuities. There's a '''reason''' fans nickname him "[[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Kenny]]"...
* HighPressureBlood: While many enemies in Getter Robo have this quality, the Invaders from ''Armageddon'' are the most obvious.
** One of the scientists in ''New GetterRobo'' has blood squirt out his neck with so much force that it pushes him away from the wall he was leaning against.
* HotBlooded
** Any time you hear Ryoma screaming in anger, much ass-kicking will ensue.
* HotScientist: Michiru in ''New Getter Robo''
* HotbloodedSideburns: Ryoma's sideburns especially. Pretty much any parody and reference to a HotBlooded SuperRobot hero will use his chops as the standard length.
* HumansAreSpecial: "Why did the Getter Rays choose lowly humanity!"
* HumongousMecha: Some of the largest in the medium. Shin Dragon is at least city sized, Kyodai Dragon from ''New Getter'' and [[spoiler: Shin Getter at the end of ''Getter Robo Go'']] are comparable to planets or moons, while the Getter Emperor [[spoiler: starts off the size of Mars, is large enough to destroy planets by ''casually flying into them'' in ''Shin Getter Robo'' and in ''Will of Evolution'' it ''rises from the top of a galaxy'', completely dwarfing it. Better yet, it's continuously growing]]
* HyperspaceArsenal: And not just for the giant robots. Ryoma's arsenal during his [[OneManArmy one man assault]] on the Oni capital in ''New Getter Robo'' was positively ridiculous.
* HyperspaceMallet: Getter Robo pulls weapons out of thin air, or from places where they cannot conceivably fit.
* IfItSwimsItFlies: Getter is -literally- built around this concept. Depending on how the three jets combine, the form a different robot, capable to fly on Earth and space, fly or burrow underground, or swim and dive.
* InfantImmortality: Repeatedly, gruesomely averted in the original manga. The worst is probably two kids who the Hyakki Empire vaporizes from the waist up.
* JAMProject: Openings and endings to ''New'' and ''Shin vs Neo'', while the two OPs of ''Armageddon'' were sung respectively by Ichirou Mizuki and Hironobu Kageyama, who would later form the group.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Hayato, in most incarnations. His methods are cold, and he can be rude and downright mean with his teammates sometimes, but you better not doubt that he's ALWAYS on the good guy's side. He does get better in his older incarnations, where being put into [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking a position of authority]] softens up his disposition. But he will ALWAYS be an asshole in his first appearance.
* KamehameHadoken: Shin Getter Robo's Stoner Sunshine attack.
* KillEmAll: Pretty much the ending of [[spoiler: Getter Robo Go. Not only that but it kills off the cast of the original Getter Robo leaving only Hayato to sole survivor of the first manga. While Kei is left brain dead, Go, Gai, Ryoma and Tayel are absorbed into Shin Getter. The only cast not to be absorbed, killed, or messed up are Hayato, Sho and Schwartz. Okay more like absorbed being ascending to a higher plane of existence in a way.]]
* KillSat: Gigant X-2 and X-3 in Getter Go.
* LadyOfWar: Shou from ''Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo''.
* TheLegionsOfHell: The Hundred Demon Empire of Getter Robo G. TheDragon of the organization looks like Hitler with demon horns. Like a bonus, his name is "Hidler".
* LensmanArmsRace: Several of the Getter shows have elements of this (gotta keep them monsters of the week coming after all) but it hit pretty epic/ridiculous heights in the finale of ''Getter Armageddon''.
** And the manga continuity, which quickly advances from a lone SuperRobot fighting monsters, to every nation on Earth having them and engaging in large scale wars, to epic space battles with aliens, to the ridiculous universe-shattering exploits of the Getter Emperor.
* LethalJokeCharacter: Or rather, a lethal joke mecha. The Beetle is a tiny, seemingly useless mecha used for scouting and with no real firepower. That is, until you master the art of [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning very fast]].
* LickingTheBlade: King Goru does this once. Knowing this series, it probably happens elsewhere, too.
* LifeEnergy: Some depictions of Getter Rays fall closer to this than merely being a power source.
* LighterAndSofter: The 70's ''Getter Robo'' and ''Getter Robo G'' anime series, and ''even moreso'' with the ''Getter Robo Go'' anime.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: While many Getters use variants, the most obvious would be Shin Getter-3's Missile Storm.
* MadScientist: Saotome in the [=OVAs=] and manga, though he's more blatantly insane in ''Armageddon.'' (Admittedly, later on [[spoiler:it really isn't [[BodyHorror his fault]].]]) Shikishima is a (helpful!) lunatic in every appearance he's made. Hayato in his role as a scientist in ''Āḥ'' and ''Hien'' definitely applies too, in terms of cruelness and coldness.
** Then there are, of course, professors Rando and Jacov, who play the role of {{Big Bad}}s in ''Go'' and ''Hien'' mangas respectively.
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: Michiru Saotome, naturally. Also [[spoiler:Kei in ''Armageddon'', via an AssPull for the ages]].
* MandatoryUnretirement: A recurring theme is that if you piloted Getter at some point, no matter how far you run from it, destiny keeps throwing you back in the cockpit.
* MechanicalLifeforms: Certain versions of Getter Robo borderline on this, and it's played straight in some continuities.
* MeleeATrois: Much to a lot of newer fans surprise but [[spoiler: in the original manga the Hundred Demon Empire first appears BEFORE the defeat of the Dinosaur Empire, there is something of a three-way fight between them before the Dinosaurs are defeated first.]]
* MonsterOfTheWeek: The 70's TV versions.
** Lampshaded and Subverted towards the end of the First manga arc [[spoiler:during the 3-way war between Humanity, the Dinosaur Empire, and the 100 Demon Empire]] when Emperor Gore orders the deployment of all incomplete Mechasauruses, stating that they don't have time to deploy them one at a time and will fight with pure numbers. This proves to be [[JustifiedTrope his undoing]], as [[spoiler:the incomplete Mechasauruses prove to be ''far'' more vulnerable to Getter Ray degeneration, which resulted in Musashi's sacrifice doing far more damage than it would have otherwise and utterly crippling the Dinosaur Empire army]].
* MoreDakka: Getter Hien-3. Literally every surface of his body can pull back to reveal missile launchers. Also the Stellbomber.
* MultiformBalance: Every incarnation of Getter has among its forms a JackOfAllStats, a FragileSpeedster, and a MightyGlacier. These forms will also be optimized for either air, land, or sea-based combat.
* MythologyGag: ''Armageddon'' and ''New Getter'' have loads of these. Such as three ambassadors, the former, that look a lot like the three thugs that were sicced on Ryoma in the original manga. To Michiru of ''New Getter'' turning out that she looked like the manga and classic version in her high school years.
** The Shin Dragon's final form in ''Armageddon'' is directly based on Uzahra, the massive Guardian machine of Atlantis from Getter Robo G.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: The number of things this applies to in the series is astounding. It helps that the Dinosaur Empire are, you know, ''the dinosaurs'', so all of their creations count as this by default.
* NotAsYouKnowThem: ''Armageddon'': Ryoma imprisoned for murder, Professor Saotome as the apparent BigBad, Michiru dead, [[TagalongKid Genki]] traumatized [[spoiler:and female!]], Benkei and Musashi both alive ''at the same time''...
* ObviouslyEvil: ''All'' enemies of Getters are this, except when they masquerade as normal humans. In the mangas their twisted forms, drawn by Ishikawa in loving detail, regularly reach nightmarish territory.
** Most of the antagonists in the series are [[WellIntentionedExtremist Well Intentioned Extremists]], however nasty they might look. The only one who isn't is Rando, the human, albeit an menacing-looking one.
*** The Hundred Demon Empire, The Invaders, Seimei and Jacov are simply evil as well.
* OlderAndWiser: Hayato has a tendency to be promoted to TheCaptain in sequels and after {{Time Skip}}s.
* OmniscientMoralityLicense: Dr. Saotome and Hayato both frequently fall into this trope. Sometimes in the ''same series''.
* OppositeSexClone: In ''Armageddon'': [[spoiler:Go turns out to be one of Michiru]].
* OrificeInvasion: The Invaders, unsurprisingly. Even having them ''bleed'' on you is enough.
* TheProfessor: Saotome in most incarnations.
* ParentalNeglect: Ryoma's father did nothing for him other than teach him martial arts so he could avenge his dojo.
* PowerTrio: Every Getter Team consists of one of these.
** FreudianTrio: Ryoma, Hayato and Musashi/Benkei are respectively Id, Ego and Superego in all versions where Ryoma is bapshit crazy, especially in ''New Getter Robo''.
* RealityEnsues: In the second volume of Go, the trio flies off to fight Rando's army instead of letting Japan surrender the Getter. Cue them getting lost and heavily damaged to overwhelming forces and the mecha being out of action until the middle of the fourth book.
** In the pilot episode of the 70's series, The very first Mechasaurus successfully destroys two of the three prototype Getter Machines while they were attempting to combine.
** During the test sequence for the prototype Neo Getter Machines in ''Shin VS Neo'', the test pilot for Neo-Getter One is unable to withstand the G-forces and fails to trigger the combination sequence, resulting in his Getter machine exploding.
* RealRobot: The series has enough elements of this to cause disputes on how to categorize it, especially after the second part of the manga. Some people prefer to call GetterRobo a RealRobot series that just happens to feature some of the most-super-of-[[SuperRobot SuperRobots]] in it.
* RedshirtArmy: Hayato's Super Robot Army in ''Armageddon''. In every single appearance they make, they are usually being destroyed in droves by the Invaders, with Schwartz being the sole exception (even so, his machine is frequently damaged and rescued by the Getter Team). They occasionally provide an occasional BigDamnHeroes when supporting the Getter Team, only to explode mere seconds later.
* RetCon: Hayato's recounting of [[spoiler:the destruction of Saotome Labs]] in ''Getter Robo Go'' differs on several counts from the events depicted in the ''Shin Getter Robo'' prequel manga.
* RetiredBadass: Ryoma retires to the mountains to practice and teach karate between ''Shin Getter Robo'' and ''Getter Robo Go'', and comes back having [[TookALevelInBadass taken a level in badass]]. Note that he was ''already'' one of anime/manga's greatest badasses before then.
* ReverseCerebusSyndrome: Getter Robo Armageddon is noticeably less dark after the so-called apocalypse, owing to the director shift.
* RatedMForManly: "If there's a hole, it's a man's job to [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything thrust into it]]." That speaks for itself.
* RedOniBlueOni: Ryoma and Hayato. The color of their ''machines'' even line up, if only with Getter Robo G.
* {{Robeast}}: Mechasauruses and the Mecha Oni.
* RocketPunch: Getter-2's Drill Missile combines this with ThisIsADrill, and Neo Getter has rocket punches attached to chains. Several monsters use these, too.
** In a particularly humorous example, [[MadScientist Professor Shikishima]] has weaponised his ENTIRE BODY by Getter Arc, and his arms work like this.
* RuleOfCool: This is the entire reason for Getter Robo's existence. Nothing about it is realistic. Everything about it is awesome.
** "So much for the laws of physics!"
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Even the HumongousMecha wear them.
* ScaryBlackMan: Dr. Coen in ''Armageddon'' (for a given value of [[HumanoidAbomination "man"]]).
* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: They just can't seem to decide how big Shin Dragon is in ''Armageddon''.
* SerialEscalation: One of the better examples is Ryoma in ''New''. You see 13 episodes of him that consist is more-or-less CrazyAwesome [=/=] HotBlooded [=/=] {{Determinator}} with constant {{Slasher Smile}}s. And then we see his UnstoppableRage in the last episode which goes ''way'' over-the-top.
* ShapeshifterShowdown: At various points in the manga and anime series, the Getter team fight an enemy that has obtained a Getter of their own. Every time, both sides start shifting forms to gain an advantage (for example, using a Getter 2 vs the slower Getter 3). Every time, Ryoma's team wins because transformation is ''not'' a free action and they are able to combine just a fraction of a second faster, allowing them to attack a vulnerable half-transformed enemy.
* ShapeshifterWeapon: The Invaders specialize in this.
* ShouldersOfDoom: Shin Getter-1, Getter Hien and Stilva.
* ShutUpHannibal: A typical reaction of more sociopathic Getter pilots, like Ryoma in ''New Getter'', whenever a villain attempts some grand speech.
-->'''Thinly-Veiled-Son-Goku:''' A soul should not be placed inside a doll!
-->'''Ryoma:''' Don't talk shit that I don't understand! *StuffBlowingUp*
* SignatureStyle: The art in the original manga is pretty much a carbon copy of GoNagai's early work, which is probably a major contributing factor to the frequent confusion over authorship. However, as time went on, Ishikawa broke away from this mold and developed his own unmistakeable blend of hyperkinetic, highly stylized and most importantly HotBlooded visuals and BloodKnight SociopathicHero characters who were somehow even more cheerfully psychotic than any his old colleague had come up with. The best way to describe it is probably ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''JackKirby''.
* SinisterScythe: Early on in ''Armageddon'', Shin Getter has a scythe instead of his usual tomahawk. It inexplicably switches back to the axe after the original team starts using it again.
* SlapOnTheWristNuke: Many examples, with at least two involving an actual nuke.
* SlasherSmile: Michiru might just be the only character in the entire series ''without'' one of these.
* SuperPrototype: Subverted in ''Neo Getter'' and ''New Getter'', where the Proto-Getters were either weak MechaMooks for the latest version of Getter Robo to waste, or mere cannon fodder for the MonsterOfTheWeek to blow up in the first episode.
** But played very, very straight when we find out that Shin Getter Robo is the prototype for Getter Robo Āḥ. Āḥ was intentionally made to be less powerful and more stable than Shin, which was so overly powerful that it was a danger, not just to Earth but the entire freakin' universe:
* SuperRobot: Getter Robo and Mazinger Z are considered by many to be the grandaddies of Super Robots.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: ''Getter Robo Āḥ'' causes this with its Sanskrit title, which the Japanese would write as "Ark" or "Aku". In English, it's Āḥ.
* SpiritualSuccessor: TengenToppaGurrenLagann is this to GetterRobo, in that it's one of the only other series besides this one where the finale has Mechs that are the size of Galaxies. Getter Rays and Spiral Energy are also very similar.
** Also, the head of the second form of Shin Dragon and the Gurren's sunglasses look extremely similar.
* StormingTheCastle: Halfway through ''New Getter Robo''
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Benkei for Musashi.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Hayato.
* TelescopingRobot: Getter Robo Gou aside, the combined machines never resemble their component parts. They can also produce far more weapons than what could conceivably fit inside the mech, and are often bigger than the robot itself.
** In fact, the combinations look so incredibly akward that some say that the Getters break not only basic physics, but the laws of hammerspace itself.
*** Despite this, the Perfect Change series of models [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pb0BGo8IiKg take a pretty good stab]] at making the patently ridiculous transformations work.
* {{Terraform}}: One of the many applications of Getter Rays.
* ThemeTuneCameo: Musashi singing the first anime theme in the original manga. [[http://i29.mangareader.net/getter-robo/8/getter-robo-1244949.jpg]]
** Later invoked by Benkei again in the Shin Getter manga. [[http://www.mangarush.com/files/mangas/shin-getter-robo/3/9.jpg]] [[http://www.mangarush.com/files/mangas/shin-getter-robo/3/10.jpg]]
* ThisIsADrill: Every form of Getter-2.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: TOMAHAWK BOOMERANG!
** Granted, axes are slightly more suited to throwing than swords, but it's still awesome.
** See also: Ryoma's fight against the assassins in ''New Getter''. He throws the thing (one handed. By the ''blade'') hard enough to cleanly sever a guy's arm.
* TransformationNameAnnouncement: An old example, say it with us: '''CHANGE GETTAAAAA ONE! SWITCH ON!'''
** The voice that [[spoiler: makes galaxies quake in terror: '''CHANGE GETTAAAAA EMPEROR ONE! SWITCH ON!''']]
* TransformationIsAFreeAction: [[AvertedTrope Nope]]. Multiple incidents prove against this trope in the {{OVA}}s and the manga.
** In the pilot episode of the 70's anime, the unarmed prototype Getter was destroyed by a Mechasaurus when it attempted to combine to get better speed for escaping.
** In the ''Shin Getter'' manga and the ''Armageddon'' OVA, the Getter Team fought intense battles against enemies with hijacked Getters of their own. Both times, they won simply because they tricked the enemy into [[ShapeshifterShowdown Transformation Combat]] and managed to outmaneuver the enemy by simply completing their combination ''faster''.
** On the other hand, the Getter Team has taken advantage of concealment to combine uninterrupted, or on other occasions, they are in fact skilled enough to combine at eye-watering speeds that make it difficult to track them accurately. DifficultButAwesome indeed.
* TransformationTrauma: Don't get bitten by an Oni. Or so much as ''touched'' by an Invader.
* TranquillizerDart: Subverted, though the writers were probably more concerned with the RuleOfCool than realism. Ryoma gets hit by an animal tranquiliser in the first episode, but it doesn't stop him from running across the street and dropkicking his two attackers before going down. Note that this is ''after'' he had just fought a 3-on-1 fight against some Yakuza goons and had gotten a knife buried into his shoulder.
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Some of the versions take place in 'our time', except 'our time' ''also'' has Getter Rays, giant monsters, and CombiningMecha.
* UpgradeVsPrototypeFight: In ''Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo'', Shou and Gai end up piloting Neo Getter Robo against an army of Getter Prototypes piloted by members of the Dinosaur Empire. It's a massive curbstomp battle until Gou is able to reawaken Shin Getter Robo and has it absorb the prototypes' Getter Energy.
* VisualInnuendo: Getter Gai has its [[ThisIsADrill drill]] in an... interesting place. There's also the infamous "space vagina" from ''Armageddon''.
* WarriorHeaven: [[spoiler: In the ending of ''Armageddon'', Ryoma, Hayato and Benkei find themselves in a dimensional rift where they will fight eternally alongside paralel versions of themselves, against innumerable monsters and villains from other dimensions. New Getter Robo seems to put its Ryoma in the same place]].
* WeaponizedLandmark: In ''Hein,'' the Statue of Liberty is a giant cannon/jet piloted by a HumongousMecha.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: The Dinosaur Empire and the Andromeda Flow Country, who are pretty much martyrs for the universe. The Oni gods from ''New Getter Robo'' are similar.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Wait a minute, there was an early issue where a village was turning into monkeys earlier... they found the source of the problem and yet nothing is said of those who transformed ever again.
** The entire area got toasted.
*** There was still that one in Ryoma's unit. Eh, it probably got dissected by the professor.
** And in Go Linda and her BB-5 disappear once Rando's forces are stopped in Canada.
** The Andromeda strain (yes, [[Literature/TheAndromedaStrain that one]]) shows up near the end of Getter Robo G, causing Dr. Saotome to quarantine the Getter Research lab. however, this is apparently resolved at some point due to Ryoma beating the virus back with Hot Bloodedness, as he shows up perfectly fine and the quarantine is never mentioned again.
** Armageddon is made of this trope post-Director switch. Only a handful of questions raised in Imagawa's version ever got answered, and stuff like Musashi's realization were never followed up on.
* WideEyedIdealist: Musashi Tomoe in the original manga combined this trope with WrongGenreSavvy. After meeting Ryoma and co. for first time he insists on becoming a pilot. When he is said he is not strong, sturdy and intelligent (or crazy) enough to pilot Getter (a task which is ''very'' taxing for both body and mind), he replies he has got the most important skill to become a mecha pilot: hot-bloodedness. Ryoma and Hayato wondered if he was serious. Apparently nobody told him that ''Manga/GetterRobo'' is a CosmicHorrorStory and GoNagai and KenIshikawa HumongousMecha mangas (''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''Manga/GetterRobo'', ''Anime/KotetsuJeeg'') [[UnbuiltTrope are way darker]] than [[LighterAndSofter the idealistic fare of later series]] that the genre would be stereotyped with.
* WrenchWench: Kei in the manga.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Musashi in the original manga thinks he lives in something like the ''[[LighterAndSofter Getter Robo]]'' anime, annoying the rest of the team.
* XMeetsY: ''Anime/MazingerZ'' meets ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman'' meets CosmicHorrorStory.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler: Even insane EvilOverlord-like Professor Rando should know better than working with human-hating Dinosaur Empire.]]
