- After Hola's Walker Machine shrugs off some gunfire: "This is the Walker Machine made specifically for the main character! It has plot armor!" Notably, this parody came long before shows like Mobile Suit Gundam SEED drew criticism for exactly what the line mocks.
- Note that this is a semi-sub-exclusive line, in the original he doesn't actually mention plot armor (though he does mention the main character bit). The dialogue still takes a nuke to the fourth wall, though, as does the rest of the show.
- The ICBM Catch, especially when Jiron tosses it at Hola's ship and he crawls out simply covered in dust, but with his ass on fire.
- Jiron and Hola's rivalry coming to a (melon)head when Hola compares Jiron's noggin to the fruit...and it being superimposed over his head in the ensuing reaction shot. Here's the faithful re-enactment◊ from Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden. (Z has it as well, as a Save/Quit skit from the Special Disk.)
- The constant assault on the fourth wall comes to a head with the Iron Gear's so-called "Secret Technique". This involves it jumping high into the air, far higher than an object of its mass with its small thrusters should manage, and landing on the target. Why does it work? Because it's an anime, that's why.
