A six-volume OVA that serves as a sequel to ''Anime/GunBuster'', released as a [[MilestoneCelebration 20th anniversary]] project for Creator/StudioGainax. With director Creator/KazuyaTsurumaki at the helm, who also directed ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'', this series could easily be described as the love-child of the two series. While its source material is very story-centric, ''[=DieBuster=]'' maintains a strong overarching story while including more action and style that would set the groundwork for ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' three years later.

** Tycho's Quatre-Vingt-Dix can reach to trillions of degrees below absolute zero temperatures. To those familiar with the concept of absolute zero, you can't go lower than it and it's the state ''in which all motion in matter stops moving''. Yet Tycho uses this to freeze a bunch of space monsters and subsequently destroys them soon afterward with a Buster Smash.

** A lot of equipment resembles toys and candy. Mostly [[WriteWhatYouKNow dated ones]]. Vingt-Sept [[PlayfulHacker hijacks]] and [[RealityWarper warps]] other machines through old RC car remotes. Quatre-Vingt-Dix comes packaged like an action figure. The Mega Nebula colony Lal'C's team lives in is shaped like an obscure Japanese candy in its wrapping.

* SelfParody: A drama CD track gathers up the voice actors from ''Anime/DieBuster'' and ''Anime/GunBuster'' to have them make a mock trailer for a {{troperrific}}, FakeCrossOver of the two. Or [[TheyPlottedAPerfectlyGoodWaste at least the audio of it]]. Narrated by [[Creator/NorioWakamoto Coach]]. Rather than be faithful to either, it brings in things like the unimplemented Buster Homerun and [[EnsembleDarkhorse made up kaiju]] on the old ''Anime/GunBuster'' soundtrack cover with [[AffectionateParody even more ridiculous]] [[CallingYourAttacks shouted attacks]]. Sure, we got the movie that showed the [[AdaptationDistillation distilled versions]] side by side, but imagine if they made this [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin literal ''Anime/GunBuster'' vs ''Anime/DieBuster'']] instead.
