* EvenEvilHasStandards: Ru-Kain is, without question, a racist dick, but he [[VillainousValor always fights fair]]. When [[spoiler:Gosterro]] [[CombatPragmatist uses hidden snipers to cripple David and Simone mid-duel]], Ru-Kain has him jailed.

[[spoiler: Little wonder he eventually undergoes a HeelFaceTurn once he realizes the truth behind the Gradosians.]]



* GainaxEnding: [[InvokedTrope Deliberately]] with the final TV episode, as the creators found their series CutShort, and had to extensively rewrite the finale. The ''Hallmark 2000'' OVA fixes it [[spoiler: and says "EarnYourHappyEnding".]]

* [[spoiler: 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.]]

** HumansThroughAlienEyes: They frequently refer to us by slurs like "apes" and "monkeys," and those who aren't as racist (like Gale), hold our Cold War-era global politics in horror, arguing that their invasion is justified by our inability to avoid destroying ourselves.

* ImperialJapan: [[spoiler: During the ''Ru Kain 1999'' arc, the occupying Gradosian forces treat their human subjects with the same virulent racism and callous brutality [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korea_under_Japanese_rule as the Japanese army in Korea]], even implementing similar war crimes and book burnings.]] In fact, [[spoiler: one reason for the show's early closure was the discomfort many Japanese felt at such a grim reminder of the past.]]

Although Americans were screwed out of an initial release for this RealRobot show (see NoExportForYou), /m/subs has completed a full translation [[http://msubsreleases.wordpress.com/2014/06/21/spt-layzner-1-38-batch-featuring-acr/ here]], including a series of three OVA whose third and last part corrects the original show's [[NoEnding sudden conclusion]].

* CharacterDevelopment: A key feature of Ru Kain's apperances 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]].]]

* NuclearWeaponsTaboo: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]: both the Cosmic Culture Club and the Gradosian Empire have a very real fear of the nuclear weapons possessed by the Americans and the Soviets, and a number of nukes go off on Mars as the secretive nature of the initial Gradosian invasion has the two nations at one another's throats.

!!Tropes:



* NobleBigot: Le Caine honestly subscribes to the idea of Gradosian superiority (and thus the right to rule) over Earthlings.



* OrcusOnHisThrone: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] with Gresco who spends [[spoiler: the entirety of the ''Ru-Kain 1999'' arc ruling over the Grados-conquered Earth but doing nothing about the human rebellion. It's stated that he has effectively given in to his lust for power.]]
** That is [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation one possibility]]. His {{Anvilicious}} explanation of the nature of power (in the Hallmark 2000 OAV) indicates him as NecessarilyEvil and/or TheUnfettered.
* OmniscientMoralityLicence: [[spoiler:The Grados super-computers have predicted that, in a few centuries, humanity will stop fighting amongst themselves and expand to the stars, posing a threat to Grados. The Gradosians have decided to destroy humanity in pre-emptive self-defence.]]
