A misunderstood and fun animated show on Toon Disney, for their Jetix block, about a teenager named Chiro who finds a Super Robot with a set of 5 robot monkeys locked inside. He is made the leader and together they fight Skeleton King, who wants to take over their home planet of Shuggazoom.

This show now has a character sheet.

Tropes used in Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! include:
  • Action Girl: Nova and Jinmay.
  • Affectionate Parody: The whole series is one to the Super Robot and Sentai genres.
  • Aliens Speaking English
  • Almost-Dead Guy: Jinmay at the end of Season One. She doesn't really die, though.
  • Almost Kiss: Chiro and Jinmay in the first episode.
  • An Aesop
  • Animated Series
  • Animal Battle Aura: When Chiro uses the Power Primate at higher levels, it becomes this.
  • Animesque: With an old-school flava.
  • Artifact of Doom: The artifacts used to resurrect Skeleton King.
  • Artificial Limbs: Most notably the Robot Monkeys with their robotic arms, which are replaceable. That being said, the writers like to have all sorts of fun having these arms torn, cut, or blown off. There's actually a bit of a Running Gag involving Gibson getting his hand cut off at the wrist.
    • Aaand it's suddenly Subverted when the season two finale reveals that they (or Antauri, at least) are monkeys in Powered Armor. "Continuity? What's that?"
      • He's channelling power primate energies in the process of temporarily becoming an Energy Being. It's not impossible to surmise that his body reverted to its natural state (what it would have been if he'd not been cyborgified), as he throws off his physical body layer by layer, given that straight afterwards he becomes a spark of energy.
  • Audible Sharpness
  • Artificial Gravity
  • Back From the Dead: Skeleton King.
    • Antauri in the start of Season Three too, being reborn as the very powerful silver monkey, which looks kinda ghastly, to tell the truth.
    • Nova in the Season Three finale.
  • Battle Couple: Sprx and Nova.
  • Beam-O-War
  • Because Destiny Says So: Chiro being The Chosen One, and why the Robot Monkeys were created in the first place.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Sprx and Nova.
  • Berserk Button: Nova can't stand the cold…
    • Sprx is usually pretty easy-going, but mess with his friends, and his personality can take a rather scary turn. Take what happened with Mobius Quint, for instance.
      • Calling him Sparky isn't really a good idea, either…
  • Big Bad: Skeleton King.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Later in the series, The Super Robot pretty much exists to fill this role.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Season 2's finale, with Antauri's death and Chiro becoming monkey-ish.
    • Made even more bittersweet in the swedish dub where the series ended after that and was pulled of in such a way that it semmed like an acual ending.
  • BLAM Episode: Wonder. Fun. Meat. World. Just to name one.
    • "The Hills Have 5", to name another.
  • Bloodless Carnage: The Robot Monkeys are common victims of this, sometimes getting their robotic components absolutely mangled while their organic parts usually remain relatively intact.
  • Body Horror: What happens to people who eat the food from Wonder Fun Meat World.
    • Skele-Mandarin ends up mutated after being swallowed by the Dark One Worm and living in its stomach for a few months, disfigured by acid and with a claw having grown where his arm had been severed. Horror, indeed.
  • Booby Trap
  • Bragging Theme Tune: "Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! Fighting any evil, they are Shuggazoom's hope! Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! Defeating any foe!"
  • Brainwashed: A few times, actually.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Also a few times.
  • British Accents: Gibson, among others.
  • Calling Your Attacks: The members of the Hyperforce.
  • Cant Spit It Out: Sprx to Nova.
  • Captain Ersatz: Caption Shuggazoom, aka playboy millionaire Clayton Carrington.
  • Catch Phrase: The team calls out the show's title before going into battle.
  • Chekhov's Gun: In Flytor, the titular monster takes a genetic scan of Chiro with its eye. We know this is important because we see Skeleton King in possession of the eye with the scan at the end of the episode, but we're not exactly sure how it will come into play until later in Versus Chiro, when we learn that the eye is entrusted to Mandarin to build a factory to create Chiro clones.
    • The Pit of Doom turns out to be a prominent Chekhov's Boomerang. The first time it becomes important after its introduction is when it becomes the location of Mandarin's cloning factory. But in the Season Two finale, it's revealed that Skeleton King's real intention for building it all along was to reach the egg of the Dark One embedded inside Shuggazoom to awaken it, hatch it, and unleash it on the rest of the universe. And at the end of Season Four it becomes the place where Skeleton King is resurrected. Phew.
  • The Chosen One: Played completely straight with Chiro.
  • Circus of Fear: Circus of Ooze.
  • Cliff Hanger: The series finale.
  • Combining Mecha & Humongous Mecha: The Super Robot itself. Partially subverted in that instead of being seperate vehicles that combine into the robot, it's a super robot that occasionally divides into vehicles.
  • Collapsing Lair: The Citadel of Bone, with a twist: it puts itself back together.
  • Cut Short: Right at a gigantic cliffhanger, too. Curse you, Toon Disney!
  • Cute Kitten: The Cathurians in The Stranded Seven. Nova even falls in love with one of them.
  • Death by Irony
  • Death Trap

  Sprx-77: You know what these strange beacons always turn out to be? Death traps! Always some death trap…


 Chiro: I know all about you! How you've managed to destroy nearly everything else on this planet! Dr. Takeuchi warned us!

Slingshot: Oh, really? Let's see, were you talking to a human being with a face? Or a disgusting heap of brain on a plate?

    • You'd also think it would have been a little tougher to get Sprx's love of human women past the radar.
      • Yet he DOES prefer monkeys deep down, which amazingly only made it more disturbing when it was brought up.

  Sprx: Man, you make one ugly chick, Chiro. But if you were a girl monkey... Woocha!

    • And this subtle one…

  Nova: I'm gonna beat the scrap out of you!

    • The plot of the episode Girl Trouble revolves around Chiro riding around in a small star cruiser with two pretty (and probably older) sisters clad in tight outfits who speak to him in extremely suggestive tones. A "honking" sound effect is heard whenever they move close to him. In one scene, they start to talk to him in suggestive tones again while he is drinking a red-colored soda; he becomes flustered and a GIGANTIC red bubble forms from his nose and pops all over his face. Oh yeah, and Chiro is still in a relationship with Jinmay.
  • Heel Face Turn: Jinmay at the beginning, and The Sun Riders later on.
    • Also, the Robo Apes in Ape New World.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: A non-death related example is in Shadow Over Shuggazoom, when Antauri sheilded Chiro and BT from the giant eye and got himself zombiefied as a result.
  • Heterosexual Life Partners: BT and Glenny.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: Skeleton King. He attempts a lot of short-lived Evil Plans beforehand, but we don't find out what he's really after until the end of Season Two…
  • Homage: In a large part to Star Wars.
  • Human Aliens
  • Human Popsicle: The citizens of Shuggazoom are turned into these in Snowbound.
  • If My Calculations Are Correct: Gibson.
  • Indy Ploy: Utilized a few times. The episode World of Giants is basically one big Indy Ploy orchestrated by Sprx.
  • Infinite Supplies: Partially averted. The team seems to make routine trips to Shuggazoom's moon in order to harvest rocks to convert into fuel for the Super Robot. They were also shown nearly running out of fuel in one instance and had to stop to refuel at an intergalatic truck stop. Other than that, though, the trope is played pretty straight.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: Captain Shuggazoom was quite handsome in his days as a superhero.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Monkey Fu.
  • Kick the Dog: Mandarin does this to Nova before his Face Heel Turn.
  • Kid Hero: Chiro.
  • Killer Space Monkey: The Super Robot Monkeys. Although they're technically the good guys (for the most part), they're pretty relentless when it comes to doing away with their enemies.
  • Late Arrival Spoiler: "Oh no! Antauri dies?! ...Wait, who's the silver monkey everybody keeps drawing?"
  • Loony Fan: Gyrus Krinkle.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: The Skeleton King was the creator and "father" of the Monkey Team, before his Start of Darkness.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: The Super Robot can shoot these from three different bodyparts - arms, fingers, and feet.

Mad Love: Hinted at very strongly for the Skeleton King/Valina ship. Most obviously on Valina's side, and it might explain why SK killed her off so abruptly. He was either sick of dealing with her or was disgusted by her weakness. Or both.


 Gibson: Well, that's extremely disturbing.

Chiro: Tell me about it.
