YMMV: Astro Boy: Omega Factor
  • Adaptation Displacement: While most of the Tezuka characters who show up here did make earlier stateside debuts in one form or another (even if only as extras in other Astroboy productions), for a time this was what all of them (with the possible exception of Black Jack, whose OAV series enjoyed modest success in the West during the late 90s/early 00s anime boom) were best known for in the English-speaking world, though Vertical Inc.'s recent blitz of high quality Tezuka manga translations has done a lot to change that.
  • Cult Classic
  • No Problem With Licensed Games: Easily one of the greatest licensed games ever made.
  • That One Boss: Atlas, when fighting him with Dr. Black Jack at the bottom of the map, who can't be touched at all. Single hit from Atlas's stray beam attack, and you lose.
    • Actually, it's three. At least in easy mode. And if you stay at the top section of the map while the beam is at the bottom, as long as Dr. Black Jack is out of view, you're okay.
    • In the NA normal difficulty he can survive at least one hit.
    • The Jousting Duel with Blue Knight, which requires landing a few hits while being an One-Hit Wonder regardless of your life level.
  • The Untwist: Blue Knight being President Rag. The gratuitous flashback makes it screamingly obvious.
