* YouMonster: How Nora describes the UN military to Shin, held captive, when she [[spoiler:shows him the scar she got from a knife wound made by rogue UN troops.]] To be fair, we don't know if there were UN troops with Shin's unit who went rogue and committed war crimes. Nora tells this to Sara when she believes the UN Air Force could have bombed the island. On the other hand, Nora could be trying to shift blame from the Anti-UN force doing the ''exact same thing'' earlier on.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: What the hell are the Mayan people doing in the South Pacific? Might not have been intentional since it's just called "Mayan" island, but still raises questions.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: What The fact that the hell are the Mayan people doing island, implied to be somewhere in the South Pacific? Might not have been intentional since it's just called Pacific, is named "Mayan" island, but still raises questions.Island has confused a lot of people, since the Mayans lived in Central America. It seems the name is a coincidence, as there is little similarity between the islander's culture and that of the Central American Mayan culture.

* UsefulNotes/NuclearWeapons: But actually not a nuke this time, but a fuel-air explosive.

Like the Anime/MacrossPlus OVA before it, Anime/MacrossZero eschews the usual SpaceOpera setting for a more personal story. Like the rest of the Macross series, it involves a LoveTriangle and the [[PowerOfRock Power of Music]] saving the world. Unlike the rest of the series, the usual J-pop/J-rock has been replaced with a much earthier tribal soundtrack, reflecting the setting in the South Pacific.
