* UnfriendlyFire: Gosterro's bloodlust, in the words of TheOtherWiki, "forces him to take the lives of his own wingmen." Furthermore, [[spoiler: three-quarters of the Demon Death Platoon either attempt to kill one another or succeed.]]

* CharacterDevelopment: A key feature of Ru Kain's appearances in the third OVA. After learning that [[spoiler: humans and Gradosians are the same race, separated by AncientAstronauts]], he rethinks many of his more racist ideals, even leaving a human in charge while he jets off to duel Eiji, and ultimately [[spoiler: [[HeelFaceTurn gives up his grudges, lays down his arms willingly, and returns to Grados with Julia to hopefully make the first steps towards peace]].]]

* {{Eagleland}}: David Rutherford is a sympathetic Type 1 example, [[spoiler: and the leader of the Resistance during the ''Ru Kain 1999'' arc]]. The Type 2s show up with the military in the Astrohawk II, [[spoiler: and, more concerned with replicating Layzner in the name of the global power struggle with the USSR, refuse to listen to Eiji's warnings about the invasion until it's too late]].
* EarnYourHappyEnding: How the OAV's finish. [[spoiler: LaResistance wins and liberates Earth from the Gradosian oppressors, the team member believed to be TheQuisling is a FakeDefector instead and plays a key role in the aforementioned victory, Julia unlocks the Seal of Grados and convinces Ru-Kain to lay down his arms and return to Grados with her so they can work for a peace that is still far of being obtained, and Eiji returns to his friends [[BigDamnKiss and specially to his girlfriend Anna]] so they can start rebuilding Earth and their own lives.]]

* IgnoredEpiphany: When it's revealed that [[spoiler: Earthlings and Gradosians are in fact the exact same species and not just similar, Ru Kain ''could'' have used this revelation to become more tolerant. Nope, it only fueled his superiority complex on a cultural scale, though Ru Kain was always less of a racist and more of a cultural supremacist to begin with.]]
** [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation He did, in comparison to his previous attitude.]] Notice how he [[spoiler:promotes Rowanne to his second-in-command (which allows him later to both survive and finish his own plans to help LaResistance) and grants Earthlings (supposedly) equal promotion opportunities to Gradosians]] right after that. And in the OAV, he ultimately [[spoiler: follows Julia back to Grado, probably to ''actually'' work on his and the Gradosians's issues.]]

* OffModel:
** At times, the third OVA's visual couldn't decide whether Julia's hair was loose or kept in its iconic ponytail.
** Sometimes Ru-Kain goes from "gigantic but not super unrealistic" to "FREAKING HULKING GIANT".
** In the OAV's [[spoiler: Roanne seems to ''suddenly'' [[LargeAndInCharge grow several inches]] after his promotion, then is drawn back to his normal height when he returns to LaResistance.]]
