* AcePilot : Max and Millia are former Aces from the original series. Gamlin is stated to be one, and Basara counts; Max himself states that Basara is pretty good, although not as good as himself in the past.

** Don't call Milia "oba-san" (while literally "grand-mother" in Japanese, the actual meaning can range from a respectable "Mrs." to "old lady" or even "old hag", although the latter would be probably better expressed by "baba"), or else, even when it is quite possibly literally true, since her and Max' first-born is 34 years already. Millia also looks quite young for her advanced age, presumably due to her being a meltrandi (female zentradi).

** Which is wierd, because Koyasu, Gamlin's VA, has shown in other roles that he is capable of singing quite well.

** {{Defictionalization}}: Fire Bomber's songs are done by Hummingbird, and Basara Nekki's seiyuu happily does covers. [[JAMProject Admittedly, he is experienced with that kind of thing...]]

Added DiffLines:

* DoItYourselfThemeTune: Fire Bomber LITERALLY perform their own songs. So literally, Yoshiyuki Fukuyama is consistently seen on stage with a guitar during the concerts IRL.

* XMeetsY: ''Dynamite 7'' can be summed up as ''Literature/MobyDick'' meets ''Macross''.

* MeaningfulName: "Nekki" means "enthusiasm", and "Basara" translates roughly to "crazy/stylish/over the top". both fitting of a rocker.

* NuclearWeaponsTaboo: The show continues the Macross tradition of referring to their nuke stand-ins using the ambiguous term 'hannou heiki' or 'hannou dan' meaning 'reaction weapon'. WordOfGod states that these weapons are [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Antimatter pair annihilation]] devices.

* HotBlooded: Basara is to HotBlooded singing as [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Gai Shishioh]] is to HotBlooded courage.

* {{Jerkass}}: It's hard to see why, if he weren't a MessianicArchetype, anyone would put up with Basara at all. He's continually blowing out the rest of the band, and, indeed, their fans, for his own reasons. He endangers the lives of military and civilian personnel by turning up in combat and getting in the way, and is completely insensitive to the feelings of pretty much everyone around him. This also ends up being one of the main criticisms non-Japanese fans, in particular, level at the show; he's such an unrepentant, unrelenting ''ass'', and never really changes or gets called on it, that it badly stretches viewers' suspension of disbelief.
* JerkassHasAPoint: For everything that's said about Basara, it doesn't change that ''he's right''. Singing is the answer to their problem.

disbelief. For everything that's said about Basara, him, though, it doesn't change that ''he's right''. Singing ''[[JerkassHasAPoint he's right]]'' - singing is the answer to their problem.

* [[spoiler:DyingMomentOfAwesome: Diamond Force's Commander Kinryu got one. The Battle 7 was in the middle of transforming when one of the Protodeviln ships was about to fire at it. Even though he was in a VF-11C, Kinryu had it purge its armor, charge into the Protodeviln ship, and fire at its core after he got inside in a TakingYouWithMe. Oh, and he did all this when by all rights, he should have been in a hospital bed. The scene can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSAwU26JC3k here.]]]]
