YMMV: Tiger Mask
- Adaptation Displacement: The real wrestlers who used the Tiger Mask name and likeness, are vastly more popular than the anime and manga character.
- Crowning Moment of Awesome: Various, but the trainees of Tiger's Cave setting enraged pumas and gorillas on Mister X and the admins when they see that the organization is not invincible is the most awesome.
- Defictionalization: Tiger Mask became a real wrestler, and quite a famous and well-rounded one at that.
- Ear Worm: the catchy Theme Tune in the Italian dub.
- Also, from episode 58 of the original series, the Gospel piece announcing Black V arrival on the ring.
- Fountain of Expies: He inspired King from Tekken, and real wrestlers have adopted the Tiger Mask name and fame. Tiger Mask itself owes a little something to Fray Tormenta, a masked wrestler who used his funds to support an orphanage.
- Italians Love Tiger Mask: The anime series is very popular in Italy under the name L'Uomo Tigre, il Campione, even getting a Shout-Out in the Italian dub of Detective Conan (when the Killer Of The Week was shown having a wrestling mask, Megure openly wondered if the murderer was Tiger Mask). Incidentally, in Italy almost nobody knows of the real-life Tiger Masks.
- Memetic Mutation: ‘The Money Tiger’, a mock-opening sequence of a supposed cheesy Hebrew dub of a ‘70s/‘80s animenote , used the opening sequence of Tiger Mask’s and Galaxy Express 999’s anime series. The parody gained modest memetic status.
