''Mobile Fighter G Gundam'' (''Kidou Budouten G Gundam'', lit. "Mobile Fighting Legend G Gundam") is the first AlternateUniverse in the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise. Notable as a significant departure from the normal ''Gundam'' saga in that it was essentially a {{Super Robot|Genre}} show. Every ''Gundam'' series before and after has been essentially the prime examples of the RealRobotGenre. ''G Gundam'' has only a few mild relations to the other series besides the name "Gundam." It also takes a lot of inspiration from the {{shonen}} genre. Part of this radical change is that YoshiyukiTomino set aside series director duties after being burned out on ''Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam'', and so they instead got YasuhiroImagawa to do the job. You know, the guy who did Manga/GiantRobo, [[MazingerZ Shin Mazinger Z]], the first 3 episodes of [[GetterRobo Getter Robo Armageddon]], etc. The result was a series less like traditional Gundam, and more like a classic SuperRobot series of yore. Bandai also demanded a ''Gundam'' tournament story in an attempt to increase gunpla sales, which were doing poorly at the time.

** A rather surprising ShoutOut for an anime: the name of the MS piloted by George's butler Raymond is "Butler [[MurderByDeath Bensonmum]]". Similarly, the Neo-American MS is named "[[Franchise/{{Robocop}} Murphy]]".

* AFoggyDayInLondonTown: Episode 9 is set in London, and is foggy during the Gundam fights, although it's revealed that the fog is being manufactured deliberately to obscure [[spoiler: the illegal use of dummy mobile suits to aid the aging Chapman in his fights]].

** Article 2 states that a Gundam Fighter is disqualified for deliberately targeting their opponent's cockpit, although there is no penalty in cases where injury or death is ruled accidental (e.g. if damage to another part of the Gundam causes fatal feedback to the cockpit). Wong decides to throw this rule out in the Finals as well.

** Turning the actual Gundam Fighter's head into chunky salsa during a Gundam Fight is also not allowed, covered by Article 2 states that a Gundam Fighter is disqualified for which prohibits deliberately targeting their opponent's cockpit, although there is no penalty in cases where injury or death is ruled accidental (e.g. if damage to another part of the Gundam causes fatal feedback to cockpit (though in all likelihood, the cockpit). victim's entire ''body'' would be turned into salsa, if not [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket hamburger]]). Wong decides to throw this dismisses that rule out in for the Finals as well.well, much to everyone's shock.

** Three, if you count Master Asia, whose motivation is similar to Char's in ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char's Counterattack]]'', and who is Domon's original mentor.
