The original American distributions of ''Megazone 23'' were anything but impressive. It was briefly released in North America by Harmony Gold as ''{{Robotech}} the Movie''. Carl Macek crudely spliced in footage from ''{{Robotech}}'' to force a linkage between the two shows, and of course the [[{{Macekre}} usual Macek dub script]] was conjured up out of nothing to replace the original dialogue. Macek and Harmony Gold also produced a dub of ''Part 2'' (with a different cast and set of character names), which was only released in Japan as an aid for teaching English. (It also used footage of the alternate ending for ''Part 1'' that was produced for the Robotech movie as a prologue). Creator/StreamlinePictures later produced a straight dub of Part 1 with the same cast as the International Part 2 (but Japanese character names), but couldn't release Parts 2 and 3 due to their financial problems and inevitable shutdown. Later, Creator/MangaEntertainment released an un-butchered version of Part 3 for the UK on VHS, but the result, reportedly, was still horrendous.

** RetGone: Eve's hair color changed to be exclusively platinum blond in Part III, ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' and Aoi Garland, despite the latter two portrayals being set in Parts 1 and 2. This is even retconned within the series when [[spoiler:The original Megazone 23's Eve is visited by the real Eve and Eiji]], and even they have platinum blond hair!

Added DiffLines:

** In Megazone 23 Part 3, something that is notable is that all the scenes involving Eiji and his team, who are all using Garlands with their conversion modules locked out, have them travelling along curiously empty and wide streets.


Added DiffLines:

** Downer Endings also happen with Part 2 and Part 3. [[spoiler: In Part 2, most of the population of Megazone Two Three perishes when the ADAM system tears the colony ship apart, and in Part 3, EVE banishes herself into space inside Eden City's computer core to stop the end of the world.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TrashTheSet: In Megazone 23 Part 2's closing minutes, the titular space ark itself is torn apart by the ADAM system that was used to replace the Moon, and it shows, in great detail, several of the locations from Part 1 and Part 2.
This list shows the last 10 events of 57. Show all.
