Redman promptly jumps out of.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayingWithFire: Birdon uses its fire BreathWeapon very effectively in Episode 7, igniting everything around it and forcing Redman to ally with Telesdon and Beacon to kill it. [[spoiler:Redman ultimately gains his own fire-based power, the Red Fire, after Birdonís defeat, which is basically the ability to lob balls of fire at his foes. Heís implied to have used it to kill Telesdon and Beacon]].

* RedHerring: At first, one might think the [[spoiler:Cicada People]] are going to be major players in the plot, as they [[spoiler:are watching Redmanís adventures on an old TV]]. However, in Episode 10 [[spoiler:they are revealed to be either dead or just models]].


Added DiffLines:

* ThousandYardStare: In Episode 3, all Gokinezula does is just stare sadly into the sky. This and other things imply that the Kaiju are not native to Red Fight...

* VillainTeamUp: Multiple Kaiju team up to take on Redman, specifically Black King and Dorako in Episode 4, Gubira and King Gesura in Episode 8 and King Maimai and the Big Ligers in Episode 9.


**Redman jumping on Stegon's back in Episode 6 whilst not having his powers has been confirmed to be a reference to Series/ReturnOfUltraman. Stegon's death, being thrown off a high area, is also how he died in the Redman TV series.
**Kanegonís mutated form in Episode 3 is directly based on his design from the Redman TV series.

series.
** The flashing blue lights on Redmanís head seen in Episodes 2 and 5 appear to function similarly to the original Ultramanís colour timer, warning him of when his power is low. However, Redman transforms into a blue version of himself rather than a human.
** The pictures of the seriesí Kaiju on Matt Frankís Website/DeviantArt also include lots of references to past Ultra Series content, such as mentioning Birdonís clash with Series/UltramanTaro or stating that Gudon is the natural predator of the Twintail species.

Added DiffLines:

* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Redman kills many of his foes this way with the Red Arrow, a long spear. In Episode 8, he improvises and impales King Gesura with Gubiraís tusk.


Added DiffLines:

* MirrorMatch: Redmanís fight against Redman Dark plays this trope very effectively, blacking out the two opponents so we canít tell who wins. [[spoiler:Itís ultimately Redman]].

* MonsterOfTheWeek: Each episode sees Redman facing off against a new monster or multiple new monsters that at least the audience hasnít seen him fight before, with Jirass and the Big Ligers being the only ones to appear in multiple episodes thus far. This even factors into the plot, as part of the narratorís motivations seems to be constantly finding something new for Redman to face to keep people watching.


Added DiffLines:

* TrumanShowPlot: Seems to be the case, as the Cicada People are watching Redmanís exploits through an old TV and the narrator speaks like an overexcited TV show host, everything seemingly happening on their whim.

Added DiffLines:

* BenevolentMonsters: Though a number of Kaiju (IE Arstron, Birdon) are actively violent and malicious, a lot of them are just trying to survive on Red Fight. We see them eating, sleeping and even just watching a sunset through-out the story. Heck, a lot of Kaiju who attack Redman (most notably Gudon and Stegon) could be interpreted as just trying to kill him for their own survival. That said, whether or not the Kaiju would be actively kind and helpful to others is unknown as of yet.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilKnockoff: Redman Dark looks exactly like Redman apart from his black colouration [[spoiler:and is apparently ďsecurityĒ for the place where the Cicada People and the TV are located]]. However, itís unknown at this point if the narrator created him.

Added DiffLines:

* LiterallyShatteredLives: Stegon breaks into pieces upon landing from Redmanís Red Fall in Episode 6.

Added DiffLines:

* CurbStompBattle: Redman takes down Gudon very quickly in Episode 2, and is able to ambush Jirass in Episode 5, felling him with a single blow from the Red Knife. Redman later ends up on the receiving end of this trope in Episode 6, when he is pummelled by Stegon whilst depowered, though he returns the favour when his powers return.


* CameBackWrong: In Episode 3, after being killed by Redman an innumerable amount of times, Kanegon comes back as a hideous, shambling shell of his old self. However, he also CameBackStrong, as he is able to finally catch Redmanís Red Arrow and thus stop dying, with Redman actually retreating as a result.

**Episode 3 is where itís revealed that the Kaiju come back to life after dying and, if killed enough, mutate into horrid, but stronger, forms, as is the case with poor Kanegon.
**Episode 10. [[spoiler:The Cicada People are revealed to either be dead or models, we get our first real interaction between Redman and the narrator, Redman ends up fighting another one of himself called Redman Dark and, after he kills Dark, is teleported away with his foeís corpse as a monstrous, scaly fist smashes out of the ground.]]
