* AuthorExistenceFailure: Creator/KenIshikawa. This left Getter Robo Āḥ, the last series chronologically, on a very annoying cliffhanger since the magazine it ran in was cancelled and he was unable to pick it up again before his death.
** Possibly not. The ''Getter Robo Saga'' compilation manga (made while Ishikawa was alive) supposedly has a "revised ending for Getter Robo Āḥ", but few English-speaking fans have been able to read it.
*** The revised ending glosses over the previous cliffhanger and presents an even worse one. [[spoiler: Arc makes it back to Earth somehow, Kamui pulls a coup of the Dinosaur Empire and develops the anti-Getter weapon "Bug", and beats the crap out of Arc. Then Getter Dragon appears and it just stops there.]]
* FanNickname:
** [[CrazyAwesome "Batshit Ryoma"]] - Ryoma - a near permanent SlasherSmile combined with his sheer HotBlooded, balls-to-the-wall {{Determinator}} personality causes many to doubt his sanity.
** "[[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Kenny]]" - Musashi - for having to die in every continuity, HeroicSacrifice or not.
** THE RAPE MACHINE - The Black Getter from ''Armageddon'', thanks to a kickass design and a ''[[TheBerserker really]]'' [[TheBerserker aggressive fighting style]].
* VideoGame/SuperRobotWars:
** Better to list which games ''doesn't'' include Getter in it, which are ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsBX BX]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment J]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsK K]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsL L]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsUX UX]]''. Special mention in that it forms one of the corners of the "Holy Trinity" of the series, the others being Gundam and Mazinger.)\\
** Also, most of the time it appears, it's ''Getter Robo G''. ''Shin Getter vs Neo Getter'', appears in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsReversal Reversal]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGC GC/XO]]'', ''Armageddon'' appeared in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Destiny]]'', and ''New Getter'' appeared in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsNEO NEO]]''. ''Armageddon'', however, made a triumphant return in ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2''.\\
** Shin Getter is also part of a group called the Three Gods by much of the fandom, the other two being [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Genesic GaoGaiGar]] and Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}. In-game and in [[http://gallery.fanserviceftw.com/_images/bc3b2c36535232a60a1a8501878d6737/8%20-%20combattler_v%20daitarn-3%20double_zeta_gundam%20freedom_gundam%20gaogaigar%20getter_robo%20getter_robo_g%20great_mazinger%20gunbuster%20gundam%20ideon%20king_jder%20koutetsu_jeeg%20mazinger%20mazinkaiser%20neon_genesis_evangelion%20nu_gundam%20raideen%20shin_getter_robo%20super_robot_wars%20vf-19%20vf-19_kai%20vf-1s%20virtua-on%20wing_zero_gundam%20zeta_gundam.jpg promotional art]], those three robots are considered pretty much the biggest heroes of the SuperRobot type and are always shown front-and-center.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Besides Ishikawa's death, Imagawa was the one who directed the first 3 episodes of Armageddon. Everything was shaping up for an intense mystery martial arts mecha mashup with all of Ishikawa's series joining the fray. Then he got sacked, simply for taking a little too long. He took the scripts with him, leaving Armageddon the aborted mess it was post-Ep3.
** Considering what we still got in the end was still awesome, it could've been worse. Still one has to wonder...
