* EyesDoNotBelongThere: General Monte's lieutenant Carolho is a grey mass of eyes with arms and legs, who can throw his eyes at enemies. Every one of his evolutions (which started when he got into a teleporter with an ape monster and they got fused, ''[[Film/TheFly1958 The Fly]]''-style) retained this trait. Also the Deskarga footsoldiers, the Four-Eyed Men.
** What? They should've been called "Three-Eyed Men"? The Four-Eyed Men ''do'' have four eyes! Just don't ask us where the fourth eye is...

The Combo Rangers' adventures were a huge hit amongst Brazilian Internet users, back in its emerging era in the country during the turn of the 21st Century; so much, in fact, that while ''Revolution'' was rolling, they even got [[ComicBookAdaptation their own comic series]], published by JBC, which lasted 12 issues between 2001 and 2002 (as well as a three-issue miniseries based on the ''Revolution'' series before that), each with their own self-contained story. A second series, published by Panini in 2003, was a bit more mature (both in art and in story) and lasted 10 issues. Since then, the series lay pretty much dormant as Yabu shifted his focus to ''Sea Princesses'' and other personal projects, until he announced, late in 2012, a fundraising campaign for three brand-new ''Combo Rangers'' albums. The R$ 40,000 (about US$ 17K) goal was met in just ''two weeks'' - which goes to show how fond are the memories of the Brazilian Net surfers who followed the Rangers more than ten years before. The first of these albums, ''We Are Heroes'', was released in the 16th Rio de Janeiro Biennial Book Festival, in September 2013, with the other two coming out in the following years. The graphic novel trilogy and most of the print comics have been re-released digitally. The first graphic novel has been released in English through [=iTunes=] and Comixology.
