* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler: Grace, fittingly as the BigBad who is hidden for a little over the first half of the series]]. Saotome Yatsuburo is a lesser version who focuses solely on getting Alto back as part of the Kabuki theatre and thus worsening his IdentityIssues in the process.

* EverybodyLives: [[spoiler:The end of episode 24 hints strongly at KillThemAll, but then the last episode plays out and in the end ''none'' of the good guy cast ends up dying. Even the terminally IllGirl is suddenly cured.

** There's one in the start where the pilot of the starliner that Sheryl is riding in and Frontier control are talking in heavily accented enlish. Counts as ShownInTheirWork since air control chatter is in English in real life.

* LensmanArmsRace: Due to the Vajra's ability to keep adapting to every new weapon that the Frontier fleet could throw at them. By the end of the series, they were using miniaturized versions of the [[EarthShatteringKaboom planet busting]] "Dimension Eater" bomb from halfway through the show as bullets and missiles, simply because that was the only thing left that would work against the Vajra.

** In the final episode, [[spoiler:Brera's save of Alto]] is reminiscent of [[spoiler: Han Solo saving Luke during the Death Star trench run]] in
''StarWars: ANewHope''.
** In ''The Wings of Goodbye'', Captain Wilder's surfing maneuver is called "Big Wednesday" formation, a ShoutOut to Creator/JohnMilius 1978 surfing movie of the same name.

There are three main characters: Alto Saotome, an ex-kabuki actor turned sky-pilot who feels oppressed by the domed skies of Macross Frontier but also an obligation to protect them; Ranka Lee, a [[GenkiGirl spunky]] young girl with a severe case of post-traumatic stress disorder and a dream of becoming an IdolSinger; and Sheryl Nome, a popular and headstrong IdolSinger from the neighbouring Macross Galaxy fleet who is known as "The Galactic Fairy".

** Ranka's popularity and Sheryl's fall from grace is a deconstruction of the IdolSinger trope, showing how quickly one can be replaced once people find a new one.

* Ending spoilers ([[NonSerialMovie Movies]]): [[spoiler: almost a DyingDeclarationOfLove]]: [[spoiler:Resolving the LoveTriangle]].
* Ending spoilers: [[spoiler:EarnYourHappyEnding: With prejudice.]]
* EarthShatteringKaboom: The Dimension Eater.
* Ending Spoilers ([[NonSerialMovie Movies]]): [[spoiler:EsotericHappyEnding, Potentially]]: [[spoiler:Story goes that the fandom had quite an outcry at the ending to the second movie, which left Alto apparently dead, Sheryl in a coma, and the ending bit is pretty much Ranka being ever the optimist and saying she's sure Sheryl will wake up when Alto is back, and she's sure he'll be back. [[TearJerker Everyone cried]]. An interview with Kawamori not long after basically said "Dudes, Alto didn't die, and Sheryl woke up. Where did you get these crazy notions?" He also once said he thought Sad Endings stuck with people more, so YMMV.]]
** [[spoiler: This is also the same Shoji Kawamori that may have had Hikaru, Misa and Minmay sucked into a black hole in the manual to Macross M3 just so he could get fans to stop asking if they would ever appear in another Macross production, so, yeah.]]
** [[spoiler: In this instance it's more a case of the fans ''wanting'' the tear-jerker ending and ignoring the evidence in the movie that disproves it. The Vajra Queen, Alto in tow, is clearly shown entering space-fold before the final attack hits. The supposedly 'in a coma forever' Sheryl is singing along with the song at the end of the credits, and her earring is shining indicating that Alto has come back. "Where did you get these crazy notions?" indeed. ]]
