 This really is a classic theme. Good choice.
 
This was also done to rather comical effect in One Piece. They have a combination tactic called "Pirates Docking Six - BIG EMPEROR".
 

 
There was just one thing I never quite got about Yoko's reaction to the Gattai. She just looks like she's really into the idea. She just 'really' likes combining, or she was thinking of something dirty.

Barom One`s anime might be new but as far as human Gattai goes he and Ultraman Ace are the grandaddy`s of Gattai Barom One predates Getter Robo by 5 years :)
  But that doent change that Getter Robo is waaaaay more awesome XD

This is indeed a great trope, and as a big mecha fan its one of my favorites. I'm also happy to see Godannar  in there, really good series if you look past all the fanservice. Great video series as well, keep up the good work. So, here are some more good examples of gattai not in the video:
 
Best of them all, Genesic GaoGaiGar:

  Skip to six minutes to watch Giant Gattai robot vs. Giant Gattai robot. Old School epicness.

I never knew that their was a word for fusing of mechs.  I learned a new word for one of my all time favortie animes of all time Go lion/Voltron and it's Gattai.  Cool stuff.  So Go lion/Voltron isn't just Mech anime. 
 
Just look at the different openings between Go lion and Voltron and see what show you would want to watch. 
 
  
   
 
  
   
 
I still think the best Gattai is from Voltron and here it is.

@Oneesama: Never, ever underestimate the ability of the Japanese to narrate exactly what is going on on the screen.

@ethan: How DARE you accuse me of being a slacker. And if you MUST know, I did watch it this weekend, but somehow, I completely forgot what happened in it...guess I'll have to watch it again this week to refresh my mind on it. Then write an article! I promise I'll watch it this week (for the 2nd time, to refresh my memory). Haha.

It's hard to remember things when you did them drunk.
