** Aside from functioning as a generator, the [[PsychicPowers Topless' abilities]] let them [[AllThereInTheManual distort the laws of physics]]. It is dangerous and unpredictable, [[AllThereInTheManual even to the user]], to the point of needing to be sealed for daily life. This would imply [[spoiler:the real Space Monsters themselves have such abilities]].

The parallels between ''Anime/GunBuster'' and ''[=DieBuster=]'' are readily apparent. Both series focus on two girls - one, a hyperactive girl with natural talent but no actual skill; the other, a more stoic figure, a veteran of training, and the one person her compatriot idolizes. Both stories revolve around human emotion and the draining effect a drawn-out war can have on the combatants and their relationships. They both idealize the principle, common to the SuperRobot genre, that with hard work and determination, and ThePowerOfFriendship, anything is possible. Finally, they also realize, rather poignantly, that even with incredible power, [[PyrrhicVictory sacrifices must be made]]. The duology is a testament to the Mecha genre, and the talent of Creator/StudioGainax, and should definitely be watched by any anime fan.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Nono [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices]] herself to save Earth. She never meets her idol, [[Anime/GunBuster Noriko]], who finally returns after being [[TimeTravel flung thousands of years into the future]] to arrive 10 years later. Lal'C watches from a hill with some privacy, remembering how much it meant to Nono.]]

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.

[[spoiler: She even tried to sacrified herself to save the Earth like Noriko did. The difference is, while Noriko survived, [[HeroicSacrifice Nono didn't had the same luck]]]].

** 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.
