** The modus operundi for Reinhard during the early stages of the series. All the people he and his best friend save end up becoming his highest admirals. His more honorable tactics not only result in more victories but also UndyingLoyalty from (most of) his subjects.

* LaserGuidedKarma:
** Rudolph von Goldenbaum launched a campaign to eradicate all humans with birth defects, while enslaving those who weren't white or Germanic. In his death, his only son had congenital birth defects, temporarily leaving his Empire leaderless and in chaos.
** The corrupt nobles constantly used underhanded methods and ploys to off Reinhard. When they start wanting glory, [[spoiler:almost all of them meet a miserable end at the hands of their own men]].
** The Earth suffered this tenfold from their colony worlds. Most notably from a graphic even based on the Rape of Nanjing called the "Bloody Night". When the Earth lost its military power, the Black Fleet did a pillaging a hundred times worse, followed by a bombardment that turning the Earth into a desert rock in space. Furthermore, the Earth that was so concerned about making itself the focal point of humanity has now become a forgotten existence.
** After [[spoiler:selling out their country to the Empire in the first half of the series]], the Alliance politicians get what's coming to them. [[spoiler:To bring stablility to the Neue Land, Reuenthal persecutes, incarcerates and executes those same sleazy politicians to gain popularity from the populace.]]

* BalanceOfPower: At the beginning of the series the Empire and the Free Planets Alliance are relatively equally matched, with the semi-independent domain of Fezzan serving as the fulcrum for the balance -- militarily it's weak compared to the other two, but its strategic and economic importance guarantee that if one of the bigger powers moves against it, the other will come to its aid and gain the upper hand.


Added DiffLines:

* ChokepointGeography: (Well, "geography" isn't strictly accurate, but...) The Iserlohn and Fezzan Corridors are effectively the only "safe" routes of contact between the Alliance and the Empire, making them incredibly important strategically to both powers. Fezzan in particular is able to exert incredible amounts of influence by acting as a neutral middleman, relying on the balance of power to protect itself.

** A few influential Alliance military planners ''assume'' this is the case, or at least that any difficulties will be easily rectified by foraging supplies from Imperial worlds, when drawing up plans for an ambitious invasion of Imperial space. Unfortunately for them, [[RealityEnsues Reinhard employs scorched-earth tactics specifically to deny them that option]].

* GiveHimANormalLife: [[spoiler:Reuenthal]] leaves his son in the care of [[spoiler:Wolfgang and Eva Mittermeyer]] after his death because he wants his son to be cared for in a loving environment, knowing his biological mother is in no fit state to raise a child. [[spoiler:Also, it's implied that he wants to make sure his son never goes through the same experience he did of being an unwanted and unloved son.]]

* SuperPrototype: Imperial flagships are often equipped with new technologies that may or may not be mass-produced at a later moment (as with the curved armour that makes the ''Brunhild'' NighInvulnerable-it was tested against the mightiest ship-mounted guns available at the time and she reported no damage-and later used with the ''Perceval'', the communication suit of the ''Forseti'' and the [[spoiler: WaveMotionGun]] of the ''Asgrimm''). Also, the Alliance has the ''Triglav'' (supposed to be the prototype of a new class of flagship and equipped with better warp drives and more numerous and longer-ranged cannons) and the ''Leda II'' (with the Alliance's take on the curved armour of the ''Brunhild'' and ''Perceval'' and better guns than the standard cruiser).

An enormous, sprawling 110-episode (plus side stories) SpaceOpera originally released to home video (making this the longest-running OVA of all time, although it ''was'' later shown on TV). This is in Japan, of course, as neither the anime, nor the manga, nor the huge series of novels written by Yoshiki Tanaka which spawned the franchise have ever been released in America...until Anime Expo 2015, when Creator/VizMedia licensed the first few novels and Creator/SentaiFilmworks licensed the OVA. (A noble yet feeble attempt at licensing a dub version of the anime was made many years ago, but no one bit, and thus the ''only'' way the series is accessible in English nowadays is through {{Fan Sub}}s.)
