** When the ''Royal Revival'' OAV were released and the Italian dub randomly kept in Japanese the names of some characters from ''Yattodetaman'' (including calling the HumongousMecha "Grand Deity" rather than "Kingstar" and translating literally its summoning chant rather than use the one from the show's dub), the founder of the Italian Time Bokan Fan Club (who personally likes ''Yattodetaman'' more than the other series) felt insulted and in his book about the franchise the paragraph about the OAV ends with a rant on how the Italian dub is a shameful disgrace because of that. After this little accident, he actually contributed to some later releases: When ''Kiramekiman'' was released he was going to be the main script adapter for the Italian dub, but after an issue between the Italian and Japanese productions halted the show's production the dub was never done (the aforemented book still mentions how the main characters [[DubNameChange would have been called in the Italian dub]]). Later he not only managed with web petitions to release both the ''Yatterman'' live action movie and 2008 remake, but he also contributed to the former's dub and, while the latter is getting a sub-only release at the moment, he managed to release it in two variations: Faithful Version (Subs are regular translations of the original dialogue) and Vintage Version (Subs are done in a way that sounds more like the old dubs of ''Yatterman'' and ''Yattodetaman'', getting more freedom on some adaptation choices and sneaking here and there some [[MythologyGag references to the other Time Bokan series]])

Technically counts, since the series not only has two movies to its name, but a [[Anime/YattermanNight sequel series]], two video games, and even a cameo in [[VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom a highly anticipated fighting game]] with ALL main characters appearing as fighters.

This is compared to the rest of the various series, which merely get cameos or small parts at best.


** ''Yatterman'''s Doronbo Gang may even surpass the titular Yattermen in this regard- in fact, the 40th anniversary anime for the franchise is not only about ''Yatterman'', but has the descendants of the Doronbo as its main focus!

* AlasPoorVillain: The fate of Tthe Akudama Trio in ''Zenderman''. [[spoiler: They [[FountainOfYouth drinks too much turning into babies]], their judgement machine explodes and sends the baby trio into a log going down a path of dangerous rapids.]] This seems too excessive, especially compared to other villains trio of the franchise.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Woolseyism}}: The Italian dubs of the series were done by different studios, but the best job is probably the one done by the studio who adapted ''Anime/{{Yatterman}}'' and ''Yattodetaman''. Jokes are adapted in an almost perfect way (The "almost" is because you can't really translate Japanese puns in Italian, so you often see characters overreacting to nonsequiturs), Japanese references are often replaced with Italian ones (one of the main examples: the reporter that appears during the mecha fights in ''Yattodetaman'', originally a caricature of the show's producer, is renamed Nando Martellotti, turning him into a parody of an Italian sports reporter from the 70's named Nando Martellini), and the spirit of the series is kept perfectly (albeit [[ThinlyVeiledDubCountryChange it sometimes fails]], like in the scenes where [[FourthWallMailSlot the bad guys answer to fan mail]]: They change the names of the fans with Italian ones, same for the cities the mail was sent from, but then they also show the photo of whoever sent the letter and it's clearly a Japanese person)

* NoExportForYou: Most of the ''Anime/TimeBokan'' series never made it completely overseas. Latin America managed to subvert it with the original ''Time Bokan'', ''Yattodetaman'', and ''Yatterman'', and Italy managed to air the entirety of ''Yatterman'' to the point where [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff it's one of their favorite anime]]. Streaming company Anime Sols tried to subvert this for ''Time Bokan'' by putting it on the internet, but have only 3 episodes subbed until enough funding could be provided for 14 more, and managed to sub 17 episodes of the 1977 and 2008 series of ''Yatterman'' before funding was cut from the project. The rest of the franchise hasn't had a chance yet.
** Sentai Filmworks managed to subvert the trope for the ''Royal Revival'' [=OVAs=] by distributing them on DVD and on Hulu subbed.
** Any of the various ''Time Bokan'' games created were also never released overseas, and it's likely they never will.
* MarthDebutedInSmashBros: Ippatsuman's appearance in ''Videogame/TatsunokoVsCapcom'' might be the first time people in the west have seen him. In fact, it might be the first time a non-''Yatterman'' character from the franchise has been seen outside of their series at all.
** This effect might have occurred with the '''villains''' of ''Time Bokan'', as the ''Royal Revival'' [=OVAs=] focuses primarily on them. Since a great deal of their series were never released overseas, most of the villain teams would be unfamiliar to a western audience.



* VillainBasedFranchise: Let's be frank, who remembers the names of the heroes? Everyone loves the TerribleTrio, though.
** Specifically, ''one'' TerribleTrio: the Doronbo Gang. These wacky villains have been at the center of many adaptations, including both ''Royal Revival'' [=OVAs=] and numerous games. So much, in fact, that the [[Anime/YattermanNight distant sequel series]] is about ''their'' descendants instead of Gan and Ai's.
