* ''Anime/MacrossPlus'', a short OVA (and later movie) sequel set in 2040 (thirty years after the series), focusing on a contest between two prototype planes.
* ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'', a full series sequel taking place on a colonization fleet in 2045, 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.[[/index]]

* ''Anime/MacrossZero'' (OAV), a prequel to the original series set in 2008, depicting the tail end of the UN Wars mentioned in the series backstory, and offering some more insight into the [[{{Precursors}} Protoculture]] and their contact with ancient humans.
* ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', a full series sequel set in 2059, nearly 50 years after the original series. It is also set on a colonization fleet, and depicts humanity's encounter, and clash, with a new alien race known as the Vajra. Something of a "modern retread" of the original series in many of its themes.[[/index]]
** ''The False Songstress'' and ''The Wings of Goodbye'' are a pair of {{Compilation Movie}}s for ''Frontier''. As with the original series, the movies follow a different plotline and resolution.

** ''[[Anime/Macross7 Dynamite 7]]'' actually shows the use of an honest to goodness nuclear weapon, but it's okay since its the bad guys using it. ''Anime/MacrossZero'' also features missiles that are explicitly identified as nuclear, and while they are used by the good guys their use is not treated as a good thing.

* NuclearWeaponsTaboo: Due to this tropes, the series uses the term "Reaction Weapons" instead. WordOfGod is that these are actually anti-matter pair annihilation weapons that are, iroincally, more destructive than nuclear weapons. When this was pointed out to Shoji Kawamori, he simply stated that "[[ShrugOfGod Nobody's protesting about anti-matter weapons]]".

Due to this tropes, the series uses the term "Reaction Weapons" instead. WordOfGod is that these are actually anti-matter pair annihilation weapons that are, iroincally, ironically, more destructive than nuclear weapons. When this was pointed out to Shoji Kawamori, he simply stated that "[[ShrugOfGod Nobody's protesting about anti-matter weapons]]".

** Later series seem to have traded out Reaction Weapons in favor of Fold Weapons as the fictional WMD of choice. Fold Weapons are even more destructive than antimatter bombs, given that they operate by distorting space-time and are capable of planetary-level destruction.

** Averted in earlier shows. The lack of this actually plays into the plot of ''Anime/MacrossPlus''.

* ArtificialGravity: It's how massive cities that look like normal cities on Earth can exist inside spaceships.

* InertialDampening: Starting from ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', most variable fighters now have something called the "Inertia Store Converter" that not only functions as this, but converts inertia into extra power.

* ShownTheirWork: Creator/ShojiKawamori was an engineering student and, according to some sources, graduated with a degree in aircraft engineering. The result is that most Macross variable fighter designs have very plausible looking fighter modes compared to most TransformingMecha.
