* EverythingIsBetterWithPrincesses: Princess Krishna


* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The story begins several centuries after the outbreak of WorldWarThree between America and Soviet Union, making obvious that the story was written before the fall of the Communism.


* XMeetsY: ''Anime/MazingerZ'' meets ''Anime/GoLion'' meets ''Literature/GulliversTravels'' meets ''Literature/JohnCarterOfMars''.


* {{Anticlimax}}: The final battle with the Zard [[spoiler: takes only long enough for Mazinger's initial missile barrage...which sends him back to his home dimension on the last couple of pages]].



* {{BFS}}: One of the Mazinger weapons.

* CrapSackWorld: In the first third of twenty-first century, tensions between countries backed by USA or Soviet Union led to the World War III. Nuclear war and nuclear winter killed ninety percent of humankind and wiped out four out of five nations. The surviving countries realigned in northern and sourthern superpowers and kept on fighting. One hundred years later the war still last. Earth is now a dried husk of a desertic, polluted planet. The remains of the humanity dwell on underground cities, shielded from the nuclear radiation, as they keep fighting with increasingly destructive superweapons lay waste to whatever is left from Earth. Humanity has forgotten all ways of life but war, and Major Kabuto bluntly calls Earth a filthy planet and states "We are just like lizards. A bunch of lizards. Fighting for our chunk of desert."

* TheEmpire: The Zard Empire.



* TheEmpire: The Zard Empire.



* RockBeatsLaser: Definitely subverted. At the beginning, Mazinger's blade seems stronger than the light swords other mechas use... However Mazinger easily annihilated a whole Zard army because it was loaded with missiles, whereas the Lithgor and Zard armies not even use firearms.

''Manga/NewMazinger'' -also named Mazinger U. S. A. / U. S. version or Mazinwarrior- was an one-shot story written and drawn by Creator/GoNagai and published by First Publishing Chicago in 1988. It was intended to be a new, ongoing ''Anime/MazingerZ'' series expressly made to introduce the franchise to the American market. Unfortunately, the concept did not take off and it only became a short, alternate story.

Added DiffLines:

*NoEnding: The story is left without conclusion after its first and only issue.


* LaserBlade: Almost all mechas use lasers and light blades. ''{{Mazinger}}'' itself is the only one mecha that uses a regular, metal -albeit most probably that metal is {{Unobtainium}}- blade. SubvertedTrope because the mecha armors are laser-proof, [[KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter and thus Mazinger's metal sword is more effective than the laser blades]].
