''Anime/{{Armored Trooper VOTOMS}}'' is a 52-episode {{anime}} series that ran from April 1, 1983 to March 23, 1984, directed by Ryosuke Takahashi. It is divided up into four separate arcs, each one with their own unique mood and setting. Several additional VOTOMS {{OVA}}s have been created, such as the ''Pailsen Files'', set before the events of the main series, and the ''Heretic Saints[=/=]Shining Heresy'', set 32 years after the events of the series, as well as several other [[ShortAnimeMovie one-shot [=OVAs=]]] detailing the life of Chirico Cuvie, the series protagonist and others. A spinoff, ''Armor Hunter Mellowlink'', was also created; it is set in the same universe as VOTOMS, but involves an entirely different cast of characters.

* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: Meta example. The fact that there's never been a remaster or blu-ray of Mellowlink is because the original masters were destroyed in a fire.

* FragileSpeedster: The [=ATs=] zip around much faster than your average HumongousMecha thanks to their RollerbladeGood but they really can't take much punishment. The whole point of giving the mechs wheels on their soles was so the action could be much more dynamic than in ''Gundam.'' Interestingly enough, [[https://ghostlightning.wordpress.com/2011/08/18/code-geass-vs-votoms-the-mecha-roller-derby-of-destruction/ as one of the comments on this page shows]], production was originally intending to simply have the VOTOMS dash in straight lines, stopping every 40 or so meters, but a female member of the animation crew was a slalom fan and suggested they should strafe, giving us the extended battle sequences of the show.

** You can usually tell how close to the end of an Act in the original series you are by the amount of explosions seen in an episode. Generally by the arc finale EVERYTHING will be blowing up, including vehicles, ATs, and random scenery.

** Chirico has the habit of getting very special variations. Of special note is [[SuperPrototype the ISS]] he got as part of the Barcoff squadron, the [[MoreDakka heavily armed and armored Burglary Dog]] and finally the upgraded Strike Dog specially customized for him, [[LightningBruiser the Rabidly Dog]].



* BornLucky: Mellowlink. Although he has some pretty cunning tactics [[BatmanGambit and prepares]] [[CrazyPrepared for the worst]] when he can, many times he survives his fights simply because fortune favors him. [[spoiler:Also, one of the more important factors for Red Shoulders and Abnormal Survivors is luck, or at least Pailsen believes so.]]

* BornLucky: Chirico, who with a combination of his own skill and some pretty unbelievable luck manages to defy odds and survive things no other man should. [[spoiler: Subverted when he's revealed to be an Abnormal Survivor, with minor RealityWarper powers.]]
