In 2002, ''Ultraman Tiga'' was dubbed in English by 4Kids in an attempt to revive ''Ultraman'' amongst U.S. audiences. Rather than a direct translation of the source material, this dub was an AffectionateParody, paying homage to Creator/PeterFernandez's 1966 ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'' dub. However, this time around, the dub takes it to [[UpToEleven another level]], as it's filled with a [[GagDub plethora]] of lampshading humor. Audiences weren't amused, however, and the show was abandoned about halfway through.

* GoryDiscretionShot: In the movie, when during Daigo's vision as Tiga Dark, he almost went out of control and squashed an innocent girl with his fist, as the only focuses on his bust, followed by his hand punching the ground and the little girl's balloon flying up. Subverted that the death is actually a vision.

* CombiningMecha: The GUTS Wing EX-J (Extra Jet) is essentially an [[InvertedTrope inversion]] of the typical setup - rather than a group of machines that combine into one, it's a single large jet that can divide into two smaller ones.

** The basic plot of episode 22, involving our heroes trying to avoid a monster-infested fog, owes a certain amount to the Creator/StephenKing novella ''Literature/TheMist'', with one character outright comparing their situation to a story she once read about a bunch of people trapped in a supermarket.

Added DiffLines:

* DrillTank: The Peepar, one of the many vehicles in GUTS' arsenal.


* IceCreamKoan: Played with in the GagDub. The dialogue purposely renders the scene just as useless as the sayings used in it. [[RuleofFunny For laughs, of course.]]
