While the plots of the two movies are quite different, they have many similarities. Both anime are directed by Osamu Dezaki, so their overall directing style and mood is quite similar. Also, the art and animation are quite similar as well. Apart from the style, the main characters, Duke Togo and Kuroo Hazama are also very similar. They are both professionals who operate in the underground world, and can be hired for a certain fee. While Duke Togo is a professional assassin whose job is to take lives, Kuroo Hazama is an unlicensed doctor whose job is to save lives, making the two characters two sides of the same coin.

Black Jack is like the Golgo 13 of the surgery world. A pro amongst pros. Too cool. Well, he isn't too cool, but they definitely try to make him too cool with a bunch of things like a cape, the way he doesn't answer his phone and how he is a bit of a rogue coz he's unlicensed.
These two titles are similar in the sense that they're both pretty trashy viewing, which I kinda love. Plenty to make fun of in both. Golgo 13 is an actually excellent film whereas Black Jack is okay but fun with a friend.
Both are tales of urban crime, featuring badass main characters that can be hired to perform illegal activities. Both have a lot of action and some car chase scenes, as well as distinct art and animation styles.

Sukeban Deka is basically a female Golgo who fights with a yo-yo.
The main difference is that Golgo tries to have a realistic and serious setting while Sukeban is more WTF? and tries to do some humor from time to time… tries.
But outside that, you have two extremely kitsch anime, with absurdly strong lead and some ultra-violence, and very badass/cool bad-guys. They also share a lot of visual techniques, most notably those cool dramatic freeze-frame.
Both animes take a very special amount of care to do interesting effects with light.
Both are also trashy 80s action animes, although Golgo 13 is based in the real world whereas Ai City involves lots of psychic powers.
Both anime have anti-heroic main characters, who work as guns for hire and take all kinds of jobs. Both explore similar themes, such as crime, violence, sex etc. They are both quite stylish and action-packed, and have an overall similar vibe.
The assassins only work for based from contract and they will fulfill with any cost. The main story follows "Golgo" & "Noir" being chased by a powerful enemy who controls everything including economic country. Duke Togo & Yumura Kirika are Japanese people only based from passport info.

Both contain powerful manly characters and gritty violence. Midway through the story, the focus shifts from the main character to the supporting cast as it interprets the gradual corruption of people. Such examples include revenge and religion and a very grey look on morality. New Fist of The North Star displays the world's society fighting for ambition and survival while Golgo 13: The Professional encourages Leonard Dawson's obsession with revenge.
Both Duke Togo and John "Sleepy, Mad Bull" Estes are very big, muscular and are popular with the ladies. They are both not afraid of anything and will get the job done. Both anime are very similar in tone and content. These two old school anime titles are action-packed anime with violence, blood, gore, sex and gratuitous nudity. However Mad Bull 34 is more over the top and can be silly at times while Golgo 13: The Professional has a more serious driven plot. If you like one, you should enjoy the other.
Both films have an emphasis on stylish visuals & great music. Dirty Pair Project Eden is a bit more dynamic in its sci-fi & visual flair while Golgo 13 delivers better action scenes reminiscent of 80's action films. While Dirty Pair is more feminine & Golgo 13 is more gritty, these movies contain the rule of cool & worth your time.
Both are films directed by Osamu Dezaki; having distinct visuals including dramatic still shots and multiple uses of color. The characters Golgo 13 and Cobra are old school manly men who are slightly based on James Bond. These movies contain action with Golgo 13 being more traditional to American action flicks while Cobra's setting is very Star Wars inspired.
