* BaseBreakingCharacter: Toppo. He's either a funny companion or an [[TheScrappy annoying nuisance]].
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: In one scene Megaborg Mileena forces some type of liquid into the titular mecha and, not only does it fill up the cockpit, but Daitarn ''actually ends up drunk.'' [[http://itemcrash.tumblr.com/post/22655398795 See for yourself.]]
* EarWorm: "One two three! Daitarn 3!"
** Even more so the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSdBUs0ORxY Italian theme]].
* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Italians Love Daitarn 3]]: Despite being relatively unsuccessful in Japan, the series became very popular abroad, especially in Italy during the 80's.
* MemeticBadass: Any ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' game he's featured in turns Banjou into an unbeatable [[TheCape Cape]], who will ''always'' save the day wherever he turns up. His ''epic'' InTheNameOfTheMoon speech helps. In ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2: Hakai-Hen'', even ''[[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Lord]] [[RatedMForManly fuckin']] [[{{Badass}} Genome]]'' was afraid of him. In ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2: Saisei-Hen'', Banjou, with the help of [[Anime/TheBigO Roger Smith]], use their combined awesomeness to kick [[spoiler:Anime/CodeGeass canon in the 'nads]] by [[spoiler:keeping both Shirley AND Euphie from being killed off, provided you obtain sufficient "Zero points".]]
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: The mushroom episode is a notable example.
