I'm not sure why someone created a Playing With page without any Trope Trope lines.

However, I do have a way that this Trope can be subverted: If the betrayal is expected based on what we know about the character before, i.e. if the character is a Heel-Face Revolving Door, a servant of Les Collaborateurs, a Dirty Coward, a good friend or long-time member of a Quirky Miniboss Squad, etc. In effect, the audience expects the new addition to be a Civillain.

Why are a lot of these spoilered out? It's not as if it removes the chance of spoiling, since it's specifically about a new arrival who betrays the team.

I do not understand this natter. What is the difference between second season and second series? The terms are usually synonymous. Also — what do you mean the new G-2 is a still a traitor: you appear to be agreeing with what is already there.

  • In the second season opener of Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, the team gets a new G-2 as a replacement for dead Lancer "Condor Joe" Asakura, much to the others' discomfiture. Surprise! He's a Galactor agent. Double surprise! Joe, Back from the Dead, kills him.
    • This is the second SERIES, a continuation of the original. The new G2 is still a traitor.

Second season and second series are definitely different things. In the case of Star Trek, for example, the second season premiered in 1967 and lasted about a year, while the second series premiered in 1987 and lasted seven years.

The confusion stems from the tendency of some anime franchises to change titles every year, presenting each new season as a new series. (Sometimes it really is something new; other times it's just an Oddly Named Sequel.) Of course, there are plenty of anime franchises that don't take this approach. I have no idea which is the case with Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.

Many Outside America but still English speaking don't say Season, to them each Season is a new Series, Name change or not.
