Astragius Galaxy, year 7213. For one hundred years the space nations of Gilgamesh and Balarant have warred against each other for reasons long forgotten. Severly exhausted, they both agreed to a ceasefire. With peace just over the horizon, some Gilgamesh soldiers turned traitor and attacked a Gilgamesh research station to steal its contents.

* AceCustom: Considering how simply designed an average AT is, it isn't a surprise that quite a lot of individual mods exist. Most notably, there are the Turbo Custom, Red Shoulder and Burglary Dog derivatives of the regular Scopedog made and used by Chirico. Subverted in that they break as easy as normal [[AMechByAnyOtherName ATs]] and the difference is usually a bunch of extra guns strapped to it.

* LightningBruiser: The Strike Dog and Rabidlydog in TV series. They're heavy-class ATs like [[MightyGlacier Standing Tortoises]], but have better performance than [[JackOfAllStats Scopedogs]]. The Strike Dog [[AwesomeButImpractical suffers from short operational time]], but the Rabidlydog fixed that. ''The Last Red Shoulder'' added the Bloodsucker and ''Big Battle'' added the Ecrevisse to this trope. It's worthy to note that while Chirico could stand up against the Strike Dog and Bloodsuckers with just a [[WeaponOfChoice modified Scopedog]], he needed a [[FragileSpeedster Light Scopedog]] to keep up with the Ecrevisse.
* MadeOfExplodium: Polymer Ringer's Solution, the fuel that allows ATs to move in a fluid human-like way, is so volatile that a sufficiently hard impact, or even exposure to a large enough temperature difference will cause it to ignite without warning.

''Anime/{{Armored Trooper VOTOMS}}'' is a 52-episode {{anime}} series that ran on Creator/TVTokyo 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.

** Each of the four arcs is similar to a film. Woodo is ''Film/FirstBlood'', Kunmen is ''Rambo'', Sunsa is ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', and Quent is ''2001''.

* SuperPrototype: Double subverted in PS1 ''Steel Force'' video games, where player can find the prototype of Scopedog, Spending Wolf. At first glance, it seem to be slower version of Scopedog. The "super" part come from fact that Gilgamesh actually ''want'' every Spending Wolf to come back from battle and collect their data. So Spending Wolf has thicker armor, and few equipments, including fire extinguisher, that got removed in Scopedog.

** Teitania is a Film/{{Terminator}}. Even the music when she is chasing some "freelance cold capsule contractors" is similar to the score of the films.

* 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.
This list shows the last 10 events of 87. Show all.
