* LampshadeHanging: Noted above but there's a lot of shades in this show. There's Alto and his "Princess" callsign/nickname, and there's also a conversation between Klan and Mikhail in which Mikhail points out "If we ever became romantically involved, I'd probably be [[{{Lolicon}} arrested for pedophilia.]]", which netted him a very literal ArmorPiercingSlap, as Klan slapped the head of his [[TransformingMecha Battroid]] so hard he got bashed around in the cockpit. Even later on, [[spoiler:Ozma nearly gets killed in the exact same way as Roy Focker once did, and the camera then cuts to the hospital with Michael mentioning that it'd be tragic if Ozma had actually died.]]

** 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''.

* GenreSavvy: Michel/Mikhail Blanc certainly seems to be - his comments to Cathy in Episode 17 [[spoiler: about how tragic it would've been if Ozma had really died]] point to this. [[spoiler: Perhaps that's why he avoided confessing to Klan Klan until Episode 20: it resulted in {{Going Down With The Ship}} and he invoked four or five {{death tropes}} as he expired.]]
** Alto also shows some of this, telling a fellow pilot about the "Valkyrie pilot's curse" that teasing a pilot about his girlfriend will result in getting shot down, a reference to Kakizaki's death in the original ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross''.
** In the movies, an attempt by Galaxy's cyborg agents to seize control of the fleet was defeated by [=NUNS=]'s Frontier-based special forces when they were gunned down before they could get into Island 1's bridge. Subverted in the second time since [=NUNS=] personnel in the bridge were taken by surprise, which even included President Glass and Mishima being killed.

** Arguably, Ranka herself is a pretty fierce deconstruction of Moe, this may or may not come from the fact that even though Ranka was created to appeal to a [[{{Moe}} certain]] [[{{Otaku}} crowd]], said crowd ended up being the fans that disliked her the most. [[spoiler: They would claim that despite her many "[[LuckyStar Moe points]]", she still royally screws up in the last few episodes.]]

** Sheryl's pose in the Diamond Crevasse single cover is something of a lesser meme, with an AffectionateParody on a LuckyStar album. Also popular with Sheryl cosplay.

[[TheMovie A movie version]] was announced at the airing of the last episode of the series. It was initially expected that it would largely be a clip show of the series with some new scenes, similar to ''Anime/MacrossPlus'', but as the project developed it eventually became more of an AlternateContinuity retelling that was split into two movies. The first, ''The False Songstress'', was released in November 2009 and covers the range of episodes 1-7 in the series, including numerous new and altered scenes as well as several new songs. Some scenes were altered quite drastically. For instance, [[spoiler:Sheryl Nome's fall during her first concert in episode one was caused by Alto accidentally knocking her off during a stunt, while in TheMovie she jumps off the stage by her own free will]]. The second movie, ''The Wings of Goodbye'', was released on February 26, 2011. [[spoiler:It resolves the LoveTriangle that has hounded the show since the first episode]].

Added DiffLines:

** Justified in that her stage outfits are all holographic and she's actually wearing a full-body jumpsuit. The skin she shows while performing isn't really hers.

* BadassLongcoat: Brera Sterne gets one in TheMovie. Yes, he was always BadAss, but now he's BadAss ''with a longcoat''.

* MemeticBadAss: Machida, the only NUNS pilot that knows what "Transformation!" means. He's on screen for maybe 30 seconds in a single episode (in which he is BadAss), and we never see his face (though he does get a BadAssBoast and a Isamu Punch), but his memorable moment transcends space and time like Creator/ChuckNorris such that ''any'' RedShirt extra piloting a vehicle who does something BadAss was ''clearly'' Machida.
