The original RealRobot series, ''Mobile Suit Gundam'' literally [[TropeMaker created a genre]], and eventually spawned an entire franchise. Details can be found on our ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' page. ''Mobile Suit Gundam'' has a direct sequel in ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'', and there are also a trio of {{OVA}}s and one [[WebAnimation ONA]] set in the same time period during the One Year War: ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamThe08thMSTeam The 08th MS Team]]'', ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket]]'' ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamMSIGLOO MS IGLOO]]'', and ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamThunderbolt''. There is also a manga re-imagining of ''Mobile Suit Gundam'' under the name ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamTheOrigin''. The show's production itself was [[RuleOfFunny comically]] fictionalized in ''Manga/GundamSousei''.

** Gundam's evolutionary concept of Newtypes is likely influenced from TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey.

* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler: In the novels, Degwin Zabi is just said to be dethroned. This suggests that he survived as he did not accompany the fleet that was destroyed by the Colony Laser.]]
** [[spoiler: Hayato, as well. In fact, of the three main pilots, only Kai survives in the novelization.]]

** In the compilation trilogy, Captain Paolo is last seen being carted off to receive medical care at Luna II. While in the original anime, Paolo dies of his wounds after the Luna II fiasco, the movies never state that he died. In addition, [[spoiler:Icelina and M'Quve]] survive because the episodes featuring their deaths were not featured in the movies.


Added DiffLines:

* StayingAlive: [[spoiler:Char is presumed to have been killed when Kycilia's Gwanzine exploded, but the final compilation movie adds a scene during the end credits showing a shadowy figure bearing a resemblance to Char on a Zeon escape ship. Zeta Gundam confirms that Char survived the One Year War.]]

* PuttingOnTheReich: the Zeon flag is basically the flag of the Third Reich with a different symbol.

** 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.
