* AuthorExistenceFailure: 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]].
* NamesToKnowInAnime:
** Creator/AkiraKamiya: Classic Ryoma. Also the narrator of ''Armageddon''
** Creator/HideoIshikawa: [[TheOtherDarrin Non-classic Ryoma]].
*** However, he's the one that voices the most [[CrazyAwesome crazy awesome]] Ryoma.
** Creator/KeatonYamada: Classic Hayato.
** Creator/NaoyaUchida: [[TheOtherDarrin Non-Classic Hayato]], who manages to sound ''even more'' BadAss and HotBlooded than Ryoma in ''New Getter''.
** Creator/TakahiroSakurai: Gou (''Shin vs Neo'')
** YuuAsakawa: Shou (''Shin vs Neo'')
** Creator/TomokazuSeki: Gou (''Armageddon'')
*** Incidentally, Kei (''Armageddon'') is voiced by [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Allenby]]'s seiyuu (NarumiHidaka). Looks like this is one show where her crush on [[Creator/TomokazuSeki Domon]] gets reprocipated.
* ShoutOut:
** Among others, ''New Getter Robo'' contains a blink-and-you'll-miss-it Shout Out to ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED''.
** ''Armageddon'' also features shout outs to several dozen mecha anime shows in the grunt forces of the good guys... including half of them being various Franchise/{{Gundam}} mecha.
*** Donít forget, the Towers ID is apparently NCC-1701-F
** Another one from ''New'' : the [[ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish password]] to the information about Getter Rays-powered weaponry? [[CutieHoney CUTIEHONEY]]. Yeah, that's pretty stupid.
** Literature/TheAndromedaStrain shows up in a chapter of Getter Robo G explicitly by name, which serves as the basis of a biological weapon that the Hundred Demon Empire tries to steal.
* VideoGame/SuperRobotWars: Better to list which games ''doesn't'' include Getter in it, which are ''[[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 [[GaoGaiGar Genesic GaoGaiGar]] and {{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...
