Actualy, only number 4 applies to Go Nagai mecha and not that much really as
Mazinger has killed mech monsters with lesser weapons (Roketto Panchi!!!).
The five guy thing was started I think by Combattler V and taken up by
Voltes V (which was ddirected by Tomino I think, Prince Haniel is a bit like
Char). Getter Robo only had 3 ppl.

If its Go Nagai, go for really weird, organic looking baddies, other,
support super robots (ala Aphrodite A) and comic relief mecha (ala Boss
Boroto, Texas Mack and Texas Robo). ANd also, the main robot should upgrade
to a "Great" or "G" (even V) version about halfway through, after someone
"dies" of course.
