Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: An anime set in America, made by one of the most [[Creator/StanLee prolific comic creators]] ever... and the U.S never got a dub of it because of distribution disagreements. The joys of irony eh?


* JustForFun/XMeetsY: The show is essentially every Superhero show meets Mecha.

* VillainDecay: Inverted, while both antagonists started out beaten fairly easily, both come back even stronger, Minami actually used the combat data gathered from his battle with Heroman, and used it to his advantage, Kogorr [[spoiler:is an EldritchAbomination that has eaten many planets before, and ''keeps'' the DangerouslyGenreSavvy behavior that made him such a huge threat in the first place]].


** Let's not forget the music that plays during the trailer for {{Heroman}}, which is reused during the final battle with Kogorr and after [[spoiler: Heroman defeats Minami.]]

** The second opening, it's just ''good''.
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhCPGCfUBXc Latin American opening]] is also worth of mention. [[JustHereForGodzilla There was people who only watched the show for the opening.]]

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Despite material clearly stating that Joey is male, Joey's appearance in both the anime and manga, and his voice, and his GenkiGirl heroine attitude, and pretty much everything about him, have convinced many a viewer that he's a reverse trap.
