* HumanAliens: Almost all intelligent species in the galaxy, humans included, look like the Protoculture. {{Justified}} as the Protoculture messing with everyone's evolution to make them look that way. The only known exceptions are [[StarfishAliens the Vajra]] and possibly the Gyararashi (it isn't clear whether they have animal or human-level intelligence).

* ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'', a full series sequel taking place on a colonization fleet in 2046, which encounters the enemy the Zentraedi were fighting before humanity. Something of a black sheep in the series due to being less serious in tone, with plot elements that push it toward SuperRobotGenre. Fans usually either LoveItOrHateIt.

* RiddleForTheAges: Exactly what happened to the ''Megaroad 01''? Thirty real-life years later and nearly fifty in-universe years later, and all anyone knows is that it disappeared without a trace a few years after its launch. No ''Macross'' series has touched that plot thread since its introduction.

It is probably worth mentioning the ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' series is often associated with ''Macross'' by Americans due to ''Robotech'''s initial (and most famous) arc being an [[{{Macekre}} altered version]] of ''Super Dimension Fortress Macross''. However, ''Robotech'' is a separate series and is not considered part of the ''Macross'' franchise by any stretch.

* BroadStrokes: ''Macross'' tends to play fast-and-loose with canon. This started as early as the original series vs its movie adaptation ''Do You Remember Love?'', which depict the same war but with vastly different events taking place. ''Macross Frontier'' and its movie adaptations similarly depict mutually exclusive sets of events coming to pass. ''Macross 7'' tried to explain away ''Do You Remember Love?'' as an in-universe movie, thus rendering its progression of events fictional, but the Zentraedi keep their movie exclusive designs and ships, rather than the original series' look.
