The movie is noteworthy for having a rather unusual genesis. Originally, director YoshiyukiTomino was going to wrap up Amuro and Char's storyline in ''Gundam ZZ'', but mid-way through production he was given the go-ahead to make a movie, forcing the plot of ''ZZ'' to be rewritten (details on its trope page). In the meantime Tomino wrote the novel ''Hi-Streamer'', but when Sunrise gave him the green light, he went back and wrote a second novel, ''Beltorchika's Children'', which he specifically wrote to be adapted into a movie. However, Sunrise instead chose to use ''Hi-Streamer'', with the final film being a pretty straightforward adaptation of its second half. These two novels serve as the origin of the Hi-Nu Gundam (the finalized, "perfect" Nu Gundam) and Nightingale (a bigger, beefier Sazabi), which pop up in video games like ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' and ''VideoGame/SDGundamGGeneration''.

Added DiffLines:

* HourglassPlot: A generational version. Char and Amuro become the complete opposites of their fathers. Where Zeon Zum Deikun was a man driven by ideology who genuinely believed in the potential of the spacenoid people, Char is a selfish, petty little man who uses his father's lofty ideals to bamboozle people into helping him carry out his personal vendetta. Tem Ray, meanwhile, was a self-absorbed JerkAss who cared more about the Gundam he created than the lives of the people it was made to protect and died laughing about how his glorious creation was being shown off on broadcast TV but that didn't stop his son Amuro from growing up to be a selfless hero.

The year is Universal Century 0093: five years have passed since the end of the First Neo-Zeon War. The Earth Federation has recovered and created a new anti-colonial special taskforce to deal with rebel forces: Londo Bell. Elsewhere in space, Char Aznable reappears out of a self-imposed hiding with a declaration that he now commands his own Neo-Zeon movement. Unlike movements of the past, Char intends to force the emigration of Earth's inhabitants to space by bringing about an ice age through dropping asteroids onto the planet. Enter Amuro Ray, now a seasoned veteran of the Londo Bell, who will ensure his arch-rival will not succeed.

** At this point in time Char is just deluding himself when he considers Amuro his rival. Whether as a Newtype or a mobile suit pilot, Amuro is easily among the strongest characters in the entire UC Gundam timeline, if not THE strongest; it's all Char can do just to keep up with him.

Added DiffLines:

** The ''MSV'' designs for the movie include the Re-GZ Custom, which was designed with the concept of "What if the Re-GZ had been Amuro's main mobile suit instead of the Nu Gundam?" As a result, the Custom is closer in concept to its "father" the Zeta Gundam, including being fully transformable (rather than just ejecting parts) and possessing a biosensor.

* MeaningfulName: A blatant [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] that everyone hates who brings about the deaths of so many people? One has to wonder if Quess's last name, which is pronounced like "Pariah", [[TheyPlottedAPerfectlyGoodWaste is a hint to Tomino wanting a hated character]].

* BriefcaseFullOfMoney: Neo-Zeon's payment for Axis comes in the form of a trolley carrying cases of gold ingots. As a preliminary to negotiations, each Federation representative receives a smaller briefcase of gold.

* [[spoiler:AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence]]: A possible fate regarding Amuro and Char. [[spoiler:The back stories of the ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'' novels shed some light on Char - Neo-Zeon forces recovered the Sazabi's Psycoframe and created Full Frontal from the data likely stored in the cockpit. The AnimatedAdaptation, however, has yet to reach any conclusions about Frontal, as the producers indicated that his story may be changed. Thus far, Frontal did hint that Char Aznable, if he's still alive, would be more than human now]].
