* TheDiseaseThatShallNotBeNamed: There ''is'' a risk of disease associated with Mars exploration, and that would be cancer. As explained under ArtisticLicenseAstronomy, the planet's lack of a magnetic field means it has no shielding from solar radiation. The show fudges the science and treats it as a fictional ailment, but like real cancer it strikes indiscriminately and is extremely hard to treat.

** [[spoiler:Arabel's attitude towards Grodek. Grodek is also GenreSavvy enough to know that Arabel will ruin his own life in order to pursue revenge, which he eventually does in Episode 24.]]

** The UE seems to be this, at least in the first episode. One Gafran camps outside the hatch to a hangar, firing at the sortieing Genoace before it has a chance to get out. When the Gundam takes down one Gafran, rather than fight it, the rest retreat and start bombing the colony from outside, after destroying the one that Flit managed to down to prevent it from being analyzed.
** And in the second episode, when Vargas sends the new Beam Rifle to the Gundam in a capsule, the Garfran immediately tries to shoot it down rather than wait and see what was in it.
** In Episode 4, we get to see a huge mothership and dozens of purple Gafran, as they show up during a mock-battle between Flit and Woolf. They waited for the right time and launched an excessive force to deal with the Gundam and Genoace Custom, when they only carried non-lethal weapons.
** In Episode 19, after losing soldiers to the Gundam AGE-2, the Vagan take a soldier hostage to prevent the Gundam from shooting them. Additionally, the Vagan positioned themselves so that the Gundam would hit the Diva if he shot at them.
** In Episode 30, when Kio receives an upgrade to his [=SigMaxiss=] Rifle, Zeheart immediately recognizes the danger and orders all of his mobile suits to concentrate on the Gundam before the rifle can charge. One episode later, the Three Phantoms also try to prevent the AGE-3 from receiving its Fortress wear. In both cases, the Federation pilots are equally savvy and successfully protect the Gundam.

** For Episode 10, the UE knows that the EnemyMine between Euba and Zalam is already a strained one, so part of their strategy is to invoke friendly fire to cause infighting between the two sides.
** In Episode 19, after losing soldiers to the Gundam AGE-2, the Vagan take a soldier hostage to prevent the Gundam from shooting them. Additionally, the Vagan positioned themselves so that the Gundam would hit the Diva if he shot at them.
** In Episode 27, it appears all is well with the destruction of the Vagan flagship. However [[spoiler: [[BatmanGambit they'd actually counted counted on that]], using the explosion to disguise their drop pods down to Earth as wreckage.]]

* [[DangerousSixteenthBirthday Dangerous Seventeenth Birthday]]: On Asemu's 17th birthday, Vagan mobile suits infiltrate and attack his home colony.

A bit of trivia: Akihiro Hino, the writer of Gundam AGE, is actually the head of the video game company [[{{Level5}} Level-5]]. Originally, Level-5 was hired by Sunrise to created a Gundam LicensedGame. Hino, who wanted to work with the franchise, wrote a plot summary for what would eventually be approved as this anime. The Level-5 game then became an adaptation of the anime and it was released August 30th in Japan (meaning that it was released before the anime finished). It is an ActionRPG for the [[PlaystationPortable PSP]] that [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo comes in two versions]]. ''Universe Accel'' features cameos and Mobile Suits from [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Univ]][[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam ersal]] [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Century]] Gundam series in its sidequests, and ''Cosmic Drive'' features cameos and Mobile Suits from [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Cosmic]] [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Era]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Anno Domini]] Gundam series. The game follows the same plot as the anime, but also features [[WorldBuilding more content for the series's history and world]] through [[SideQuest optional quests]] using an original player avatar. It additionally features many more Wears for the AGE suits other than the ones that have appeared in the anime.

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: According to this show, the rays produced by Mars's magnetic field [[spoiler:cause a deadly, incurable disease]], even though one of the big issues with real-world Mars exploration is that [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars#Geology Mars doesn't even have a magnetic field]]. In fact magnetic fields protect organisms from solar radiation--life on Earth couldn't exist without one.
