YMMV / Kotetsu Jeeg

  • Anticlimax Boss: The Dragon Emperor in the original series. He has a very short fight with Jeeg in the final episode, and most of the 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.
  • 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. The show is even a vital part of the 2015 Italian superhero film, Lo chiamavano Jeeg Robot (They Call Me Jeeg).
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: You'd be forgiven for thinking Jeeg had connections to Kamen Rider Build because of the phrase Build Up - which just so happens to be the same phrase Sento uses when changing forms.
  • Memetic Mutation: I DON'T NEED AIR.note 
    • ZENMETSU DA!note 
    • Konoyaro! Jeeg Breaker! Shinee!note 
    • "Steel Jeeg, hero of Super Robot Wars"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.
    • The scene in Kotetsushin Jeeg where Hiroshi reunites with Micchi after fifty years.
