YMMV: Kidou Keiji Jiban
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: This is a Metal Heroes series, so Kushida Akira gets LOTS of work. The opening theme (Kidou Keiji Jiban) and Perfect Jiban sum things up nicely.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Jiban, based off of RoboCop, gets a jetpack. Later, so does RoboCop in his third movie.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff
    • Do you know the show was insanely popular on the 90s back in Panama? No? Well, now you do.
    • Add Honduras too, the show was huge back in the 90s.
    • And don't forget about Brazil. Jiban is right there with Juspion, Jiraiya, Changeman, Flashman, Maskman and Cybercop.
  • Recycled Premise: Jiban's origin comes straight out of RoboCop, right down to the thigh-holstered gun. A nice case of inspiration going full circle: RoboCop's design was partially inspired by Space Sheriff Gavan, the original Metal Heroes series.
  • Unfortunate Implications: The Anti-Bioron Law that Jiban operates under is terrifyingly broad — if Jiban comes to the conclusion that you are a Bioron agent, you get an Autoderringer shot to the face. It starts with "Jiban can arrest people without a warrant" and ends with "Jiban may exterminatenote  anything that disrupts the peace of all life".
