* AdvertisedExtra: Thanks to merchandising, the two best known mecha from this show are the Gundam NT-1 and the Kämpfer. Guess how long the Kämpfer actually lasts.

The first {{OVA}} of the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise, ''Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket'' is a six-episode series that offers a significant change from the standard ''Gundam'' formula. As suggested by its subtitle, ''War in the Pocket'' is a small, personal story; a side story focusing on the experiences of a eleven year old boy during the One Year War. Released in 1989, it served to commemorate ''Gundam'''s [[MilestoneCelebration ten-year anniversary]]. It was also the first time anyone other than creator YoshiyukiTomino was given a chance to direct a ''Gundam'' story.

* AerithAndBob: Averted. With the exception of Killing, most of the cast have ordinary sounding, if sometimes mismatched, names, which makes it fairly unique among the ''Gundam'' series. This is also the show that mostly started the trend of giving Zeon military hardware GratuitousGerman [[PuttingOnTheReich names.]]

The story follows Alfred "Al" Izuruha, an eleven year old resident of a neutral space colony, as his home is drawn into the One Year War. Though supposedly uninvolved in the conflict, Al's colony is in fact home to a secret Earth Federation base, currently hosting the SuperPrototype Gundam "Alex", which is undergoing final testing before being sent to [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam White Base's Amuro Ray]]. A Zeon commando team is dispatched to destroy the Alex, but during the mission Al befriends the team's most junior member, Bernard "Bernie" Wiseman. A precocious kid who idealizes war (he's eleven, and this war happens to involve [[HumongousMecha giant robots]]), Al is impressed with Bernie's (false) stories of being an AcePilot and general {{Badass}}, and the two of them investigate the Alex as part of their ultimate plan to destroy it. However, unbeknownst to them, the Gundam's test pilot is none other than Al's attractive neighbor (and Earth Federation officer) Christina "Chris" Mackenzie. Also altering the situation is Bernie's awareness of his superiors' willingness to stop the Alex [[AtomicHate at all costs]]. The entire series follows Al's growing awareness of the reality of war as his two friends draw closer to an inevitable confrontation.
