Mazinger Z

Clear cut "Mazinger versus evil giant robot of the week" show. Even though it was one of my favorites, at one point it did feel like the series was never going to end. Thanks to Wiki, now I know it's 92 episodes long (!).

Show's even featured a half guy half girl enemy. Revolutionary in many ways.
Though the design can't be less generic, it's just a jester suit with a split face:

Another highlight is that the female robot fires missiles from a certain body part. That soon became a highly discussed feature among the kids.

And here's the locally infamous Taiwan edition theme, in case you didn't grow up there.
