* IThoughtItMeant: The movie poster might mislead you into thinking the title is "Planet Z". It doesn't help that there ''is'' a mysterious 'planet' in the movie.


''Planzet'' is a 2010 [[AllCGICartoon CGI movie]] by the same writer/director of NegadonTheMonsterFromMars, to which this film bears many similarities.

Taking place in the near future, Earth has been ravaged by mysterious aliens known as the FOS. Although the planet is now protected by a [[ForceField "diffuser field"]], an operation to strike back at the enemy, known as Planzet, requires the field to be shut down while the secret weapon is being prepared, which will leave Earth defenseless. It's up to three giant robot pilots -Taishi, Ken and Kaori- to defend their base, with the fate of humanity hanging in the balance.

!Tropes in Planzet include:
*ActionGirl: Kaori- she holds her own in combat [[spoiler:until she runs out of ammo.]]
*AfterTheEnd: Partially; Earth's polar icecaps have been melted by the FOS and most cities burned. Civilization is collapsing, but still struggles to survive. The military have the best resources.
*BetterToDieThanBeKilled: After [[spoiler:the D-cannon fails, Captain Yoshizawa tries to commit suicide but Taishi stops her.]]
*BigBrotherWorship: Played with; Koyomi loves her bother, but is (correctly) afraid that his obsession with revenge is consuming him.
*ColonyDrop: The FOS strategy [[spoiler:when losing to the Super Robot.]]
*DeusExMachina: A literal one. [[spoiler:No, not the big ray gun. It turns out there was a hidden SuperRobot in the Tokyo base, because it was considered too dangerous and was to be used as a last resort. Taishi and Komoyo stumble on it mostly by chance.]]
*DwindlingParty: [[spoiler:Only Taishi survives the FOS attack.]]
**Tecnically Koyomi and Captain Yoshizawa also survived but they were barely involved in the battle.
*FunWithAcronyms: [=PDFA=] stands for Planetary Defense Forces Alliance.
*GodzillaThreshold: After nukes fail to stop the FOS, the [=PDFA=] is forced to resort to a Wave Motion Gun [[spoiler:and later to a SuperRobot.]]
*HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Ken's.]]
*IronLady: Captain Yoshizawa. Daughter of the military leader who saved Earth from the FOS years ago, she feels she lives in his shadow and comes across as unemotional.
*IThoughtItMeant: The movie poster might mislead you into thinking the title is "Planet Z".
*ItsPersonal: Taishi is obsessed with avenging his father's death.
*LandmarkingTheHiddenBase: The Japan [=PDFA=] base is located inside Mount Fuji. It comes complete with [[spoiler:a self-destruct system and a hidden Super Robot.]]
*LittleStowaway: Koyomi sneaks into the [=PDFA=] base without warning- just in time for the attack.
*OldSoldier: Ken is older and more grizzled than his fellow pilots. He's also a heavy drinker, but just as courageous in battle.
*PlanetSpaceship: The FOS base is asteroid-sized and literally orbits the earth like an evil moon.
*RealRobot: There's only three, and they have limits such as running out of ammo.
*RetroFuture: Like Negadon, the film is an intentional throwback to old sci-fi tropes.
*ShortFilm: About 50 minutes long.
*TwentyMinutesInTheFuture: Set during the early 2050s.
*TheUnreveal: We never [[spoiler:see the FOS, nor learn why they wanted to destroy humanity.]]
*WaveMotionGun: The D-Cannon, the new weapon to be used against the FOS. However the diffuser field must be lowered first, it takes 14 minutes of prep, and can only shoot once.
*WeHaveReserves: Apparently the FOS don't care about sacrificing their minions for the cause. [[spoiler:they block the D-gun using several of their own ships as a shield.]]
