- Crowning Music of Awesome: The themes for Fighbird's initial and second transformations are inspiring. Even the support team gets good music.
- Ear Worm:
- Magnificent Bastard: Even if Draias has to collaborate with a Smug Snake like Jango, whenever he bothers to actually fight the Space Police with his own Humongous Mecha he proves himself as a very strong and very cool opponent that qualifies as this. Hell, had he been a frontline fighter since the start, the series would've probably ended much earlier... with HIS victory.
- Jango comes kinda close to this trope at times, like in the Devil Stone - related episodes; when he does 100% focus on his goals he can brew pretty good plans and almost grasp victory in his hands. If only he was less egocentric...
- Values Dissonance: Some modern fans will be put off by female characters not named Yoshiko and Haruka being less active parts of the plot, and/or by Yoshiko and Haruka themselves not being frontline support charas like Kenta (even after Yoshiko more or less graduates to Action Survivor). But this series was made in the Japan of the very early 90's and reflects some of the values of these days, on top of being geared towards young boys rather than girls.
- Some may believe that Yoshiko and Katori referring to romantic love as the one between "a man and a woman" is homophobic, but at most it's heteronormative. Again, the series is from times prior to LGBT+ media becoming mainstream, and especially in a still-more-conservative-than-average country like Japan that is still giving baby steps.
- Watch It for the Meme: Let's be real, the series would be completely unknown in the West (not including the Brave Series fandom-related circles) if not for the super popular "Is this a pigeon?" meme.
- What an Idiot!:
- Momoko is impulsive and has a big crush on Fighbird, alright, but when both factors combine in episode 22 she puts Kenta, Fighbird and herself in massive and needless trouble.
- The Guard and Baron Teams pull this big time towards the end, when they go Leeroy Jenkins mode and decide to attack the newly finished Dark Tower on their own, despite Katori and Hiroshi's warnings. Unsurprisingly, they end up captured and used to power it up, and Fighbird is pretty much forced to rescue them before facing Organic Draias.
