YMMV / Kotetsu Jeeg

  • Anticlimax Boss: The Dragon Emperor in the original series. He has a very short fight with Jeeg in final episode and most of time he uses robots rather than fight himself.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: In Kotetsushin Jeeg, Hiroshi Shiba (The original Kotetsu Jeeg) goes missing for decades, and Michi (His combat partner/girlfriend) eventually grows old enough to have a granddaughter. When Hiroshi comes back, having never aged at all on account of him being a cyborg, Michi sadly tells him that she feels ashamed that he has to see her like that. Hiroshi answers that he doesn't care, because he'll always love her just the same. D'AWW!!!
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The opening of the original series Kotetsu Jeeg. Bam Babam...
  • Evil Is Sexy: Himika. Even more so in Kotetsushin Jeeg, in which her "Breast Plate" consists of two groping dragon claws.
  • Freud Was Right: Kenji notices that the mach drills, when viewed from the front, look like a pair of breasts, which is unusual considering what drills are normally accused of representing. Then again, considering he spent the entire episode obsessed with the thought of touching the captain's boobs, seeing the drills as such probably isn't surprising.
  • Game Breaker: Almost as if due to their Crossover Rivalry with GaoGaiGar, in Super Robot Wars K the Jeegs match GGG's gamebreaking status and then go higher than that too. With only a few attack upgrades and at full morale, the combination attack Kotetsushin Jeeg can do six digits of damage! The funny thing about this? Jeeg's playstyle is a direct copy of Mazinkaiser and Great Mazinger. Kill grunts with their evasion and power, until Bronze Bell kicks in increasing their already strong power even further. As for bosses, use seishin and use Double Spin Storm. Like their predecessor in Super Robot Wars W, they also get the strongest combination attack and strongest attack in the game too. The only difference between them is the fact that the Mazinger use high defense instead of evasion.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff:
    • Latin Americans love El Vengador.
    • And Italians who grew up in the 70's and 80's love Jeeg Robot D'acciaio (Steel Robot Jeeg). His opening is one of the best remembered anime intros there.
  • Memetic Mutation: I DON'T NEED AIR.note 
    • ZENMETSU DA!note 
    • Konoyaro! Jeeg Breaker! Shinee!note 
  • Replacement Scrappy: The Dragon Emperor as Big Bad to Himika in the original series. No surprise that he doesn't appear in Kotetsushin nor is he even mentioned.
  • Tear Jerker: The episode in the original series where Takeru, an Anti-Villain General forcibly revived by Himika falls for Micchi, because she's the Identical Stranger to his beloved dead wife. He ends up pulling an Heroic Sacrifice to save Micchi's life.
