** Other versions play this straight, but even then it's downplayed. The movie version, for example, had the mid-season introduction of the Core Booster, basically a set of Core Fighters [[MechaExpansionPack with additional fire-power]].

* MidSeasonUpgrade: An unusual subversion for the franchise; while nearly every Gundam show since has the protagonist's mech eventually get either drastically remodeled into or replaced with a better one, in this series the Gundam's only upgrade is a magnetic coating for a better reaction time - otherwise it's exactly the same machine throughout. This can be attributed to EarlyInstalmeantWeirdness - it was made before the formula was established - because it helped ''invent'' the formula - and as a result parts of it stick out like a sore thumb.

** Definitely applies to main antagonist Char Aznable, who starts the series with a basic, albeit upgraded, Zaku and ends it piloting a Zeong -- a mecha so bleeding edge it wasn't even finished when Char takes it out.

** The Zeong went into battle missing its legs. This had no real effect on its performance, other than perhaps not allowing Char to use one of his famous kicks.

Added DiffLines:

* MechaExpansionPack: The G-Armour, a transport/fighter-bomber/tank that is compatible with the Core Block System. Later adaptations would remove it, as Tomino felt it was "too super-robot."

* MidSeasonUpgrade: An unusual case in this series - while nearly every Gundam show since has the protagonist's mech eventually get scrapped and replaced with a better one, in this series the Gundam remains the same throughout, only getting new equipment and armaments such as the G-Armour, a transport/fighter-bomber/tank that is compatible with the Core Block System.
** In the Compilation Films, the G-Armour is replaced with the Core Booster, basically a set of Core Fighters [[MechaExpansionPack with additional fire-power]]. The reason being that Tomino felt the G-Armour was too 'Super-Robot'.
