''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 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.

* {{Badass}}: most of the cast, but especially Domon, Schwarz, and Master Asia.



** But just to illustrate: America's Gundam Maxter is a [[BoxerBattler boxer]] with [[{{Cowboy}} six-shooters]], [[SurferDude a surfboard shield]], and [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball a football helmet]], and its pilot [[{{Eagleland}} constantly goes on about the American Dream]]. However, he's also a kind-hearted fellow who looks out for the little guy and is immensely loyal to his friends, believes in the American Dream because he's a SelfMadeMan on top of being a total {{Badass}}.

* TookALevelInBadass: The Shuffle Alliance members all take a few levels before their final fights with Domon. [[spoiler: Michelo Chariot takes one as well when he suddenly shows up for the finals, going from an easily-defeatable StarterVillain to putting up a good fight against God Gundam even ''before'' his Gundam transforms into one of the Devil Gundam's four Kings.]]

Each is also able to achieve the same Hyper Mode as Domon by the time their final fights with him roll around in the TournamentArc.

* WorthyOpponent: Domon has a habit of becoming this for a lot of people, including the rest of the Shuffle Alliance members, Allenby and Master Asia.

* WorthyOpponent: Domon has a habit of becoming this for a lot of people, including the rest of the Shuffle Alliance members, Allenby and Master Asia. A running theme throughout the series, in fact, is how having one of these can lead to more satisfying battles and a fighter improving his own skills through battle, since it gives him/her something greater to strive for. Schwarz emphasizes this to Domon during his training, right after Sai Saichi and Argo's fight.
