It was the first time in the series someone was actually able to take a couple hits from Goku and a Kamehameha and continue fighting. Metallitron appeared for a couple seconds in Dragon Ball GT, firing his fist off and causing major damage to a building. He is then destroyed by a single kick from Pan.
In The Path to Power, Dragon Ball's 10th anniversary special, Metallitron appears again, redesigned as a black man, but is defeated very quickly.He also appears in Mystical Adventure. At one point in the movie it's revealed his head can be re-attached if knocked off his shoulders, though it's unknown if he has this ability in the mainstream timeline.
- Major Metallitron can apparently fly as seen in the Super 17 Saga of Dragon Ball GT. He is also seen doing Rocket Punch which is a move Android 16 uses.
- Metallitron is the only known high-ranking Red Ribbon official (in this case, a major) who was not named after a color, and was not organic.
- Metallitron's appearance and speech pattern suggest he is likely based off of the main antagonist, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, of the 1984 film, Terminator.
- Metallitron was the first character in the series to determine Goku may have been a type of alien as seen when he scanned over Goku's body. However, It should be noted that he was unsure what species of alien Goku actually was, since no one on Earth had ever come in contact with Saiyans prior to Goku's arrival.
