* ExecutiveMeddling:
** During the turn into TheNineties, Creator/MasamiKurumada fellout with ''Shonen Jump'' with his ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' series, prompting it's cancellation. Leading him to leave Shueisha to reside with a different publisher who's willing to give him his creative freedom in developing a new story to catch some fresh air. Hence the birth of ''B't X'' through ''Shonen Ace'' of Kadokawa Shoten. The rest of his ''Saint Seiya'' francise was adopted by Akita Shoten's ''Weekly Shonen Champion'' and ''Champion Red'' magazine.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff:
** [[NeverAcceptedInHisHometown Despite how low their popularity fell in Japan]], ''B't X'' stirred up a mass cult following literally everywhere else around the globe, particularly amongst their East Asian neighbors, South Asia, Italy, Spain, and Latin America. They even had [[TheMerch toys, and action figures]] produced and sold exclusively ''outside'' of Japan to cater the fans, resulting to these foreign versions of memorabilia becoming [[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition Limited Special Collector's Ultimate Editions]] to local Japanese fans. [[note]]The only merchandise Japan ever produced for ''B't X'' during it's run were their soundtracks and [[ImageSong character songs]]. As of 2015, they only added one pachinko arcade...and a [=DVD=] BOX that's ''[[KeepCirculatingTheTapes impossible to own]]''.[[/note]]
** The popularity of ''B't X'' not only opened the doors of reintroducing their brother series ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' to a new generation of fans in Asia, but also pushed ''Saint Seiya'' into global popularity as well.
** ''B't X'' is one the best remembered and loved animes in Argentina, after ''Anime/DragonBall'' and ''Manga/SaintSeiya''. This probably has a lot to do with the fact that very little anime is ever [[NoExportForYou exported there]].
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Due to Japan's failed attempt to release the DVD version of ''B't X NEO'', along with the [[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition hard]], '''[[http://i.imgur.com/bmcY8fT.png HARD]]''' reach for Japan's limited-released TV Box set in [=DVD=], most local Japanese fans have to crawl their way finding episodes online, or owning the ''[[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff French]]'' version of ''B't X'', which released the complete TV and OVA set in one [=DVD=] box (with affordable pricing).
* RoleAssociation:
** Let's just look down at the cast and count how many of them are connected with ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'':
*** Our hero is [[Creator/NobuyukiHiyama Hiei]]. He keeps the common shout of "MESSIAH FIST!!!!" from ever getting dull; not to mention he's been a ''Game Master'' since he was a kid. [[note]] Teppei's childhood voice actress, Yoshiko Kamei was Tsukihito Amanuma aka. Gamemaster, one of the Sensui Seven in YYH.[[/note]]
*** His brother is [[Creator/NozomuSasaki Yusuke Urameshi]].
*** The woman who trained him is [[Creator/MegumiOgata Kurama]]
*** Juggler is Kurama's high school schoolmate who likes to play word games. [[note]]Juggler's voice actor, Issei Futamata plays Yuu Kaito aka. Taboo in YYH.[[/note]]
*** Aramis' B't is [[Creator/YokoSoumi Yusuke's mom]].
*** [[Creator/KappeiYamaguchi Jin]] plays an enemy again, only colder and obsessed with flowers.
*** [[Creator/AiOrikasa Kuwabara's sassy sister]] now plays a [[BigBad baddie]] CreepyChild in charge of the empire.
*** [[KenyuHoriuchi Metalface]] was Hokushin, Yusuke's lead subordinate in the Three Kings Arc.
*** [[Creator/ChisaYokoyama Karin]] was Suzaku's pet bird, Murugu, and also Hinageshi, one of the guides to the Spirit World within the movie.
*** And oh yes, [[EliteMooks elite mook]] [[Creator/TakehitoKoyasu Asato Kido]] still plays...[[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment an elite mook]] name Miru.
** With an interesting note, Teppei and [[Creator/KeijiFujiwara Ron]] continued their team bond out to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamThe08thMSTeam Universal Century]] that same year. Two years later, they formed the [[Manga/InitialD Myougi Night Kids]] for their off-duty hobby.
** In the wake of 2013, [[Creator/NobuyukiHiyama Teppei]] did his [[{{Expies}} expies]] proud by becoming the [[spoiler: Libra Gold Saint]] in ''Anime/SaintSeiyaOmega.''
* TroubledProduction:
** The anime of ''B't X'' initially had decent ratings in their home country when they first started airing. But then the [[ExecutiveMeddling higher ups comes along to pull out their resources and sending hell lots of the animation production overseas to cut cost]], triggering the bad cycle of [[OffModel inconsistent character design]] and animation, ultimately plunging their ratings and had their anime forced into GeckoEnding. Which was a shame, since Kurumada fully showcased his artistry of lovable characters, deep philosophy, and a rock solid plot line [[TooGoodToLast within his manga]].
