* BannedInChina:
** MazingerZ was aired in the Philippines in the 1980s alongside ''Anime/VoltesV'' and ''{{Anime/Daimos}}'' until they were ordered off the air by President Ferdinand Marcos, without reaching their finales. ''Voltes V'' and ''Daimos'' came back after Marcos was gone, but ''Mazinger Z'' has never returned to this day.
** The series also started being broadcast in Spain in 1978, gaining instant and overwhelming success, but it was pulled off at January from 1979 due to complains regarding violence and other questionable content. Only thirty-three random episodes had been dubbed -- and one of them never was emitted -- and Spanish fans had to wait to 1993 to watch the series aired again.
* BeamMeUpScotty: In the Spanish dub, Kouji's [[{{Calling Your Attacks}} infamous]] {{Rocket Punch}} line was translated as "¡Puños Fuera|" ("Fists Out!") instead of "Puño Cohete", and Sayaka's [[{{Torpedo Tits}} Oppai Missile]] attack was traslated like "¡Fuego de Pecho!" ("Breast Fire!"). However, a huge chuck of the Spanish-speaking fandom is downright convinced she told "¡Pechos Fuera!" ("Breasts Out!") despite of she never told that line.
* CrossDressingVoices: In Spain, sixteen-years-old male teenager Kouji Kabuto was voiced by voice actress Julia Gallego.
* FanNickname:
** Iron Wall / Iron Castle / Zetto - The titular HumongousMecha from ''Anime/MazingerZ''.
** Brocken Ball - The {{Calvin Ball}}-like sport played with [[TheDragon Count Brocken's]] head.
** The Institute - The Photon Atomic Power Research Institute.
** Infernal Empire - Dr. Hell's organization.
** Gureeto - The titular HumongousMecha from ''Anime/GreatMazinger''.
** Kouji Kabruto (Spanish for Ka-brute): Kouji, in Latin America, due to his IdiotHero tendences.
** ''El Boiler Con Patas'' (The Water Heater with Legs in Mexican Spanish): The titular robot, due to the fact it looks like a walking water heater.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The Spanish loved it so much that they built a ''statue''. [[http://kakuregaijin.blogspot.com/2007/01/transformations-of-mazinger-z.html No really]]. To be fair, it was going to be a part of an amusement park that was never built, but ''still''...
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: ''Anime/MazingerZ'' was broadcast in Spain in 1972. However, only thirty-three random episodes of the first season were dubbed before MoralGuardians forced to pull the plug -and only thirty-two episodes were aired. The last dubbed episode never was emited-. IVS released several tapes, recopilating twenty-four of the episodes aired by [=RTVE1=]. For fifteen years buying, renting or borrowing those few tapes were the only way Mazinger-Z fans could watch the series (and only a tiny chunk of it!). In 1993 ''MazingerZ'' -the whole series- and ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' -part of it- were broadcast -and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' also was aired later-, but both series never were released in tapes or DVD, and if you had not recorded the episodes or you did not know someone could lend you his/her tapes, you were out of luck. Finally in the late nineties, several movies featuring the most famous GoNagai Super Robots were released in tape, and in the 00's a group of fans uploaded and shared both series and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' online. However, the original Spanish dub of many episodes is still missing since they were never released (fortunately, some fans recorded several episodes and kept the tapes for THREE decades. Thank to them part of the lost dubbing job was recovered). Given the fights and disagreements between Dynamic Planning and Toei prevent the original anime series from being aired or released out of Japan, sharing the tapes or downloading the episodes online is the only way Spanish-speaking fans can watch the Mazinger trilogy.
** Averted in Mexico, when the full series was released in DVD recently, along with ''ShinMazinger''.
* MarthDebutedInSmashBros: ''Anime/MazingerZ'' was beaten in export to France by ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'', and since Kouji appears in that show as well, when ''Mazinger'' came over it was seen as a '''cheap imitation'''. ''Grendizer'' also technically beat ''Mazinger'' to American shores but due to name changes and the like nobody really noticed until years later.
* MissingEpisode: In Spain thirty-two episodes from the first season were broadcast. The first season was fifty-seven-episodes long. They were aired out of order for no apparent reason, too.
* NamesTheSame:
** '''Sayaka''': Sayaka is definitely not ''[[Manga/CityHunter the daughter of a Yakuza boss]]'', two blue-haired {{Magical Girl}}s from ''OkusamaWaMahouShoujo'' or ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' or a ''[[VisualNovel/DanganRonpa SHSL-Idol]]''.
** '''Misato''': Boss' cousin is definitely not ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Nerv's Operations Director]]... or so we hope.
* NoExportForYou: This is a specially moronic instance of this trope sounds scarily similar to what has happened in France with ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer''. ''Anime/MazingerZ'' was emited in 1978 and pulled out due to MoralGuardians after barely emitting thirty-two episodes of the original ninety-two. ''Thirty-five years later'' it ''still'' is popular enough licensers consider releasing the [=DVDs=] would be profitable. However, due to legal disputes between Dynamic Planning and Creator/ToeiAnimation, the series can not be licensed for TV broadcasts or DVD releases out of Japan. Selecta Vision has managed to publish ''Anime/ShinMazinger'' -and made money of it- and have mentioned they would like getting ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'' licensed, and the original manga made by GoNagai together with the GosakuOta version have been legally published (the GoNagai version twice), but releasing the original series is pretty much impossible right now. The Spanish and Latin American fanbases are very NOT pleased.
** Averted in America now that DiscotekMedia snatched up the license and will release it subtitled and completely uncut.
* PlayingAgainstType/ForeignDubbing: The Mexican voice actor Jesús Barrero voiced Kouji Kabuto and is mainly known for voicing youths like [[Manga/SaintSeiya Seiya]], [[Manga/DragonBall Yamcha]] (first voice), [[Anime/DigimonTamers Impmon (and Beelzemon)]], and even [[Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove Emperor Kuzco]]. Then he became the [[TheOtherDarrin second voice]] of [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter Griffin]]. These days, he still voices immature characters.
** Let's not forget him as Professor J and ''Dekim Barton'' from the ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'' dub.
* {{Rerun}}: In Spain it was braodcast for first in 1978. It was rerun for second time in 1994.
* TropeNamers: For SuperRobotGenre and RocketPunch
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Sayaka Yumi from was one of the first ActionGirl and {{Tsundere}} with a lead role in Anime, and she and Kouji did the BelligerentSexualTension bit before no one else. However, she was PutOnABus at the end of the series. TheBusCameBack again at the end of ''Anime/GreatMazinger'', but after the end of the series she was PutOnABus again. She was to become the 4th spazer pilot in ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'', but character developer and co-plotter of the series, Shingo Araki, opposed GoNagai and designed a new character that did not appear in the Grendizer manga: Maria Grace Fleed, younger sister to Grendizer main character Duke Fleed. Maria soon became a fan-favourite in the latter part of the series. It is... interesting speculating what might have happened if Sayaka and Maria showed up in the same series (both of them being hot-tempered, HotBlooded {{Tsundere}}s liked the same boy. And Sayaka was a ClingyJealousGirl to boot).
** Kouji Kabuto wore a ScarfOfAsskicking and used a bike to dock on Mazinger Z in Creator/GoNagai's early designs. However, ''Franchise/KamenRider'' premiered before ''Anime/MazingerZ'', and Go Nagai removed and changed those elements because he didn't want people to think he was ripping off another show.
** Another GoNagai series, ''Anime/GodMazinger'', has nothing to do with the original series. However, it was meant to be the sequel from ''MazingerZ''. However the idea got rejected, ''GreatMazinger'' and ''UFORoboGrendizer'' were made instead of, and years later a ''Anime/GodMazinger'' anime was made, but removed any connection to the original series.
