* NoExportForYou: Notably averted. For reasons better explained on the Anime/{{Robotech}} page, the ''Macross'' IP has some of the most {{egregious}} legal snarls anywhere in anime. ''Macross II'' made it across the pond because Harmony Gold was in the middle of a corporate restructuring, and the Japanese combatants agreed to bury the hatchet and get ''Anime/MacrossPlus'' and this show into America while the getting was good.

* {{Zeerust}}: It's 2092, and Sylvie still uses what seem to be 5 1/4" floppy discs to start up [[spoiler:the SDF-1 Macross -- which would be anachronistic even for the last time it flew in 2012.]]

* AlternateContinuity: Studio Nue has placed ''Macross II'' in a "parallel world." All other Macross storylines, starting with ''MacrossPlus'', have ignored ''Macross II'' -- except ''{{Macross 7}}'', which reused some of the songs (in a DisContinuityNod).

''Macross II: Lovers Again'', a 1992 [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVA]], was the first animated sequel to ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' to feature an all-new storyline and cast of characters. It was also the only entry in the ''Franchise/{{Macross}}'' franchise which didn't have any input from original creator Shoji Kawamori or the original production studio, Studio Nue. (It did contain work from Haruhiko Mikimoto, the original character designer, and was produced by Big West, which produced or co-produced everything else in the Macross franchise.) Either because it wasn't as well-received as expected, or because Kawamori and Studio Nue weren't involved (probably both), other entries in the Macross franchise have ignored the events of ''Macross II''. Studio Nue has declared it [[AlternateContinuity a "Parallel World"]].

* ShoutOut: Several plot parallels to ''SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', including references to Minmay and the appearance of the SDF-1.

* HandInTheHole: Hibiki sticks his hand in the mouth of a face carving claimed to bite if someone tells a lie with their hand in its mouth, and tricks Ishtar into thinking it bit his hand off. Possibly a ShoutOut to a similar scene in the film ''RomanHoliday''.

** Hibiki's relationship with Ishtar is a ShoutOut to ''RomanHoliday'', complete with the HandInTheHole scene from that film.

* NeedsMoreLove: Being done without the original creators' involvements has turned it into a black sheep of sorts within all of the Macross universe, even going so far as to declare it outside canon. While YMMV on its overall story, on its own merits, it stands as a great piece of anime, and its mecha (especially the GORGEOUS VF-2S), music and battles stand right there with some of the best in Macross. Luckily, it has gotten a nod or two within canon (though some Take That's as well), and even got its own campaign in the last PSP Macross game.
This list shows the last 10 events of 18. Show all.
