** Also at the beginning of the Third Generation, when Flit asks for the launch of the Diva (which is at that point in time an antique and Flit has also left the military, only holding merit as the former commander-in-chief of the Federation), another high-ranking officer puts together a ragtag crew of half-dead pilots and rookies, even giving a complete amateur NiceGirl the position of captain, for it out of pure spite. GenreSavvy viewers should know that the Diva's new crew will likely wind up turning the tide in the war.

** [[spoiler:After much tension of the first part of the battle, Episode 13 gives the audience one more sudden shock by revealing Yurin as a manipulated X-Rounder soldier by the UE at the end. (Unless you've [[GenreSavvy seen enough Gundam shows]] to know what happens to the newtype-y love interest. Then it's more of a ForegoneConclusion.)]]

* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: For once, a ''Gundam'' series has this. Yurin says "Nice catch" in episode 14 [[spoiler:and it's just as well that it's this rather than GratuitousEnglish, as it's shortly before her death]] as well as most of the written English text throughout.

*** LighterAndSofter: However, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans the next AU Gundam]] ended up outdarking AGE after 17 episodes. It probably helps that [[spoiler: we actually get to see how vile Gjallarhorn can be in IBO, whereas the Vagan never do anything that makes them stand out among the other stand-ins for the Principality of Zeon]].

* {{Badass}}
** BadassBookworm: Flit Asuno, his son Asem & grandson Kio all of them being skilled MS pilots & engineers. '''Especially''' Flit, with him being the original creator of the AGE Gundam, and later proving himself a skilled tactician.
** BadassFamily: The Asunos.
** BadassNormal: Woolf Enneacle. No psychic powers, not an X-Rounder, no Gundam to pilot. Just skill & talent when it comes to kicking ass & taking names in an MS.
*** Even more obvious example would be Largan Drace. This ''so-called'' RedShirt manages to hold off a [[MightyGlacier Baqto]] with just a plain-vanilla Genoace for awhile before he was overwhelmed. Cue Flit's BigDamnHeroes moment in the [[MightyGlacier AGE Gundam Titus]].
*** Asemu also ascends into one when [[spoiler: angered by Woolf's death, kills Desil in a duel despite his inability to use X-Rounder powers.]]

* 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.

** 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.]]
