** Creator/GosakuOta manga: [[BigBad King Vega]], ruler of the Vegan forces, is a [[GalacticConqueror brutal conqueror]] who abandoned most of his people to die on their doomed homeworld, deeming them unworthy of rescue. Conquering world after world, Vega had Planet Fleed annihilated, with the people massacred, converted into CannonFodder soldiers, or having the women sent to "service" Vegan officers. On Earth, Vega commands widespread destruction from his forces, and when he takes command, intends to [[NukeEm set off every nuke in the world]] to exterminate all life on the planet, something which [[EvenEvilHasStandards horrifies even other Vegan commanders]] like the ruthless Zuril.

* GatewaySeries: In France. Arrived in the late 70s on a public channel and created a public outcry. The reason was the ''french'' opening song, that some found kinda xenophobic, extending this to the show itself. It was a HUGE success anyway, and it's basically thanks to this show that the anime fanbase ''exists'' in France, since it created the first French generation of anime fans.

**Original manga: The psychotic [[InsaneAdmiral Barados]] is the worst of the Vegan commanders. When attacking Planet Fleed, Barados built a mountain out of the civilian dead while abducting the women and children. Barados used them as hostages to get Planet Fleed to turn over their best weapons and proceeded to "[[ExactWords release]]" them--by dropping them down miles to shatter upon the ground. Upon taking command of the invasion upon earth, Barados targets civilians to abduct and ties them to his own mecha when engaging Grendizer, killing several just to prove a point and intending on killing them all to secure his victory.

* MartyStu: Duke Fleed, unfortunately, is perceived by quite a few to be a good example of this.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: ''Grendizer'' has a huge following in the Arab world, as well as in Europe, mostly in the French-speaking parts of both; also in Quebec province.
** In Italy (renamed Goldrake) has had a huge success and is still today very popular (help being one of the first anime aired in the country).

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: ''Grendizer'' ''Good god''. There's actually a case for naming the trope "Non-Japanese Love Grendizer", as the show has a huge an absolutely enormous following in the Arab world, as well as in Europe, mostly particularly in the French-speaking parts of both; also in Quebec province.
** In
France and Italy (renamed Goldrake) has had a huge success and is still today very popular (help being one of (where it was the first exported anime aired in to get truly, monstrously popular). In Italy, where the country).show is known as ''Goldrake'', it's ''still'' very popular, particularly with kids of the 80s. Quebec also got the imported French version and it did well there.


* BrokenBase: Between the Anime/MazingerZ / Anime/GreatMazinger fans and the ones from Grendizer anime (especially fans from France, Canada and the Middle East for the latter) This is due to the distribution of the anime in this countries previously to the two prequels, leading to the confusion that the former series were actually [[TheyCopiedItSoItSucks rip-offs]] of Grendizer. Besides clarifications over time, there is still a feel of mutual hate, since the anime version of Grendizer differs very much from the original manga and the concept of the whole Mazinger saga, leading over time to Mazinger fans call {{Mazinkaiser}} as the true third series from the saga, and Grendizer fans considering their anime as a self-contained universe, somehow settling the conflict (except if a {{Mazinkaiser}} vs. Grendizer in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' multiverse turns up...)
