* HalfHumanHybrid: Ranka is one-quarter Zentradi, and Mikhail's ears are more than a bit suspicious (The novel states that his grandfather is a Zolan from Dynamite 7 while 2059: MEMORIES states that he is of Zentradi descendant); also, thinking about how humanity was almost wiped out in the original ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', about sixty years before the start of the series, and at how many people there are currently in the series' universe -- 4+ planets and 35+ colonization fleets -- it's likely that most of Frontier's population has at least a small part of Zentradi blood.

*** Language in Macross is dependent on location. Frontier spoke a mix of English and Chinese. Sheryl & Grace spoke French. Member races within the NUN, such as the Zolan have their own language. The lingua-franca of Macross however, is actually Zentran. Why? Because by the end of Space War I, 'cultured' Zentran remained the numerically dominant group. Interactions with other, sometimes 'non-cultured' Zentradi groups occur more frequently. Moreover, as a simpler language to learn, it is suitable for quick & efficient communication between different races. Not to mention its relevance to protoculture aids in study of the latter's legacies & artifacts.

* RefugeInAudacity: Movie-only. They successfully attempt a plan involving DynamicEntry with the titular ship itself, including atmosphere surfing during re-entry. [[BeyondTheImpossible No, I'm not kidding.]]

* 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.
