** AcePilot Meio Plato is obviously based on [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Char Aznable]], to the point of having a pretty similar RedBaron nickname. However, personality-wise, he actually resembles [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory Anavel Gato]] the most.

If that sounded similar to ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' to you, you're quite right - this 1987-1988 series is, in fact, very similar to Creator/YoshiyukiTomino 's masterpiece. However, ''Metal Armor Dragonar'' is much LighterAndSofter than the series it parallels, not only keeping death to a minimum, but also engaging in refreshing comedic episodes which manage not to detract anything from the action and the development. People who liked ''Gundam'''s bleak setting might be somewhat put off by this, but ''Metal Armor Dragonar'' presents itself as a worthy alternative.

Fukuda Mitsuo of Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED fame also worked on several episodes although using a different Kanji writing of his name.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: ''Dragonar'' was envisioned as a successor to ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' without all the ContinuityLockout, and would have replaced it had it outperformed ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Gundam ZZ]]''. That's right, Dragonar was made for pretty much the same reason as the ''Gundam'' alternate universes - and half a decade earlier, to boot.
