Added DiffLines:

* MasterRace: The Space Revolutionary Army teaches the colonists that everyone born in space is a potential Newtype and that the people of Earth are "oldtypes" who are now evolutionary dead-ends. To really drive it home, Rasso describes the people of Earth as "pollution" and decrees that they must be exterminated en masse for the space colonists to return there.


Added DiffLines:

* ShotAtDawn:
** In episode 35, the Federation ships the crew to Siberia on a train and then forces them to line up before a pre-dug trench. The soldiers take up the classic firing squad position--thankfully TheCavalry comes in to bail them out before anyone can pull the trigger.
** [[spoiler:Nicola Fafas]] is executed by the [=SRA=] (blindfold and all) for discovering that Newtypes can be born on Earth and for suggesting peace negotiations with the Federation, both of which would upend the "spacenoid master race" philosophy that Rasso is using to justify his power.

Added DiffLines:

* HistoryRepeats: It turns out that the war between Earth and the colonies isn't as over as it appeared, and the leaders of both sides want to finish it permanently--which will probably wipe out ''all'' of human life, rather than just most of it.


Added DiffLines:

* PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny: The [=SRA=], ruled from a colony dubbed "Cloud Nine", is hailed as a paradise for Newtypes (enough that Nicola, a high-ranking official, insists that Tiffa is better there than on Earth). In reality it's a dictatorship where any dissent is not tolerated, and they still harbor a deep grudge against Earth's denuded population.


Added DiffLines:

* TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized: The Space Revolutionary Army and their colony drop fifteen years ago wiped out almost all human life on Earth at the expense of many of their own colonies. [[spoiler:Fifteen years later, they still call themselves Revolutionaries, in reality maintaining their own dictatorship in space under Seidal Rasso.]]

* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Jamil (and Dr. Farzenberg) pass on this epic manly philosophy into Garrod [[spoiler: before Garrod faces Carris once more]] in a manner most awesome: ''"When a man strays from the right path, a kind man needs the courage to raise his fist and correct him."'' Garrod doesn't actually ''punch'' people to get them into shape, but his actions after Jamil's advice [[{{TookALevelInBadass}} prove that those words really did have a positive effect on him]].

** Also subverted in Episode 31. After several attempts by the crew to break Garrod out of his ThousandYardStare [[spoiler:when Tiffa is abducted and taken to space]], Witz gears up to punch him in the face until Dr. Farzenberg interrupts and provides the antidote: the portrait that Tiffa had drawn of herself and Garrod.

* AfterTheEnd: Referenced in the title itself. A massive ColonyDrop (''[[spoiler:almost]] every'' Colony dropped to Earth) almost wiped out humanity ''before the series even began.'' Welcome to a Planetary scope and Species Extinction scale ApocalypseHow.

* TitleDrop: Curiously for Gundam, '''every single episode title''' is part of a dialogue within their respective episodes. This also applies to the series title as well, with "After War" being a term constantly used in the series to describe the 15 year era of rebuilding that took place after the last war between Earth and the Space Colonies.

Other effects of the event are mentioned throughout the series, such as the appearance of a new ''Colony Disease'', a nuclear winter that lasted 7 years, and the destruction of all major governments. In the opening to the series Earth is also viewed from space and it is possible to see major craters on different continents as a result of the colonies impact, with some continents missing entire chunks or pieces entirely.

* GhostStory: Some sea-going vultures relate spooky tales about the singing ghost of the "Sea of Lorelei", named for [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorelei a supposedly siren-haunted rock]] in the Rhine. Garrod buys it instantly, but the others are somewhat skeptical. Dr. Farzenberg recites some of the poem until Kid shuts off the lights in the rec room, panicking everyone (except the doc, who couldn't remember the rest of it).
