Chew Toy: Poor Takeru is a terrific example. In each episode Emperor Zuul sends out assassin after assassin to kill him and he's beaten, burned, frozen, zapped, electrocuted, asphyxiated to within a centimeter of his life, at which point the title robot arrives to save him. In the third and final arc of the 64 episode series, he's even stuck with a psionic device which drains part of his Life Force if he attempts to use his powers. It doesn't get much worse than that. Oh and, he knows that, if he does die, the super-bomb in his guardian robot will blow up the planet. YEOWCH.
Takeru: Zuul! I'll show you everyone's anger! This is the final fight! I'll put everything on the line! (God Mars turns golden while church bells ring in the background.) Takeru:MARS FLASH! (God Mars summons the Mars Flash.) Takeru: FINAL GODMARS!
Finishing Move: FINAL GODMARS! Can pretty much be summed up as a powerful slash with the Mars Flash. Alot of the time, though, it is preceeded with Godmars using God Fire to internally damage the enemy mech (usually immobilizing them), which is how it is presented in Super Robot Wars Z2.
(Zuul is defeated by God Mars.) Emperor Zuul: Mars! I can't die! I won't! Emperor Zuul: My cells are all over the universe! Somewhere out there, I will be reborn! Takeru: What? Empreor Zuul: Bwahahahaha! Emperor Zuul of Gishin is only a shell occupied by one of my cells!
Dr. Hell: …You can come out now. Gestalt: Your obsession with Photon Power is…amusing. Dr. Hell: This King of Hell isn’t enough to fight the Ba’al with…only with Photon Power can we survive! Sayuri: Do you think those three clowns will even succeed? Dr. Hell: They will live up to my expectations! I have high hopes for Baron Ashura. Gestalt: And why the elaborate call for a showdown? If you wanted the Photon Power so badly, you could’ve taken the Photon Labs while ZEXIS were dealing with Insalaum! Dr. Hell: You fools could never hope to understand my plans! Sayuri: Perhaps. In any case good luck (not!) for the battle. Gestalt: You might need it more than you think! Mwahaha!
