Violence & Scariness
Robots fight aliens, punching, kicking, shooting them with lasers and tossing them around to their defeat. In fight scenes, characters encourage the robots to defeat the villains by saying, "Jab, punch, right hook, right hook, uppercut." A reporter gets sprayed by an alien monster and is left as a skeleton.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Super Giant Robot Brothers is a sci-fi action cartoon that uses motion capture animation. The show is best suited for older kids, mostly because the speed of the show makes it tough to keep up with the plot -- characters speak quickly and the scenes are constantly changing. There's a lot of scientific vocabulary that would be tough for young viewers to digest; for example, the younger version of one character says, "In actuality, his quantum processor is cycling through a pre-programmed list of fighting strategies." There's also some language that may be iffy for the youngest viewers, like, "Let's kick some Kaiju heinie." The episodes build on each other, and later episodes take on issues like sibling rivalry and teenage crushes.
Is It Any Good?
Cool graphics and lots of action make for an exciting watch. Super Giant Robot Brothers can be captivating for viewers who like action and sci-fi. For others, it'll take some focus to get through the 10-episode season, as the show moves very quickly and is loaded with science lingo. Young viewers may easily get lost and may be frightened by some of the animated violence. Older kids who are into robots, aliens, or science will likely enjoy the show and appreciate the engaging animation style that brings the action scenes to life.
