Added DiffLines:

* BatSignal: Prince of Space gives Johnny and Mickey a dial that will call him when it's turned. The boys opt to use it later on at the laboratory "just in case" and are quickly proven right when the Phantom and his men show up.


* UnusualEars: The giant man creature on the planet Krankor has ''enormous,'' Ferengi-like ears.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainousValor: While the ''quality'' and ''effectiveness'' of his leadership might be questionable at best, the Phantom Dictator of Krankor is not at all afraid to take to the field with his troops, putting himself at risk and combating the Prince of Space alongside his [[{{Mooks}} mooks]].

Added DiffLines:

* CaptainSpaceDefenderOfEarth: Prince of Space is probably the oldest japanese variant of this.


** The villain travels through space to the planet Earth, so that he can steal a formula for rocket fuel that will allow him to... travel through space. This is even [[HandWave hand-waved]] in the film itself, by a group of journalists who ask the head scientist why such an advanced race needs Earth technology. The scientist's explanation - their fuel technology lags behind ours - is wholly unconvincing. How could they master space flight with inferior fuel technology to 1950s earth? Then again, seeing as how they made four round-trips to earth throughout the film, maybe they are just not very fuel-efficient.

** If The Phantom Of Krankor could observe the Humans from space, and peek into anywhere in the world, why didn't he just observe the creation of the formula and take notes? Of course, this blatant lapse in logic vanishes upon the realization that Phantom is a total clod.

Added DiffLines:

* AliensNeverInventedTheWheel: The Krankor invaders have interplanetary spaceflight, but their fuel technology is far behind Earth's, hence why they're here to steal our secrets.


->'''Prince of Space''': Enough of this! When will you ever learn? Your guns won't work on me!
->'''Phantom of Krankor''': ''Shoot him!''


* DullSurprise: The kids in the American version are at about the level you'd expect from a 60's TV dub, but the child actor dubbing Mickey takes it to a whole new level -- every one of his lines is delivered so flatly and loudly that he comes off as a belligerent, snide tough guy ("We like it ''very much!"'').

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: The Phantom claims that the planet Krankor is "half a million [[TwoOfYourEarthMinutes Earth miles from Earth]]". To put it in perspective, our moon is just under a quarter of a million miles away. A half a million miles wouldn't put them out of our solar system... it wouldn't even get them halfway to Mars! Although Krankor being quit close to Earth ''would'' close several plotholes...

** Wally actually does wear a mask in his Prince of Space identity, but he's still woefully inept at keeping it cool and allaying suspicions. "Wait, how did Prince of Space get in here and-" "NEVERMIND THAT, GO!"
