* KnightTemplar: Char intends to force all of humanity into space so they can evolve into Newtypes.
* LittleMissBadass: Everyone assumes Char is after Quess because he likes young girls. The truth is that he just wants to use Quess to kill people since she's one exceptionally, powerful Newtype.

* NinetyPercentOfYourBrain: {{Lampshaded}} in a conversation between Quess and Hathaway regarding the origin of Newtype powers - that people used only a fraction (said to be "half", not 10% as in the trope) of their brains while living on Earth, but began to use the rest when they moved into space. How seriously we are to take them is somewhat open to debate, in that they're teenagers, not scientists, and both spend the rest of the movie doing very little that one might consider "smart," or "well-thought out". Nonetheless, the franchise never openly contradicts this explanation.

* OlderAndWiser: Amuro
* PlotTumor: Quess' subplot eats up huge amounts of screentime, derails Hathaway and Gyunei's characters, and contributes absolutely nothing to the story as a whole, while taking away the possibility of any CharacterDevelopment for the rest of the cast. There's a reason she's as widely hated as she is.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it "Londo Bell" or "Rondo Bell"? "Londo" is the official romanisation, but "Rondo" (a term for a musical form) makes more sense when paired with "Bell".

** Londo Bell is an independent paramilitary organization that fights colonial threats against the Federation. If that sounds familiar, it should: it's the ''same purpose the [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Titans]] served''! Is it any wonder why Char doesn't trust them?
*** Note that Londo Bell is also under the direct command of Bright, whom Char worked with closely during the Gryps Conflict. Char should know enough about Bright's character that [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure he wouldn't go about abusing his power like the Titans did]]. Although considering that [[AmbitionIsEvil reintegration into Federation ranks was never really that reliable]] (re: the fate of the ''Albion'' battleship in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory''), precisely during the rise of the Titans, Char was probably [[EvilCannotComprehendGood that cynical to even think that Bright can turn into some mindless cog]]. Fortunately, as ''Gundam Unicorn'' currently dictates, it never came to be.



* WarriorTherapist: Taken to ludicrous extremes, as Amuro and Char discuss the latter's OedipusComplex [[spoiler:while the former is attempting to hold off Axis in atmospheric re-entry singlehandedly with the Nu Gundam]].

** UnfinishedUntestedUsedAnyway: They were actually just starting the testing phase when Char's Neo Zeon fleet decided on a preemptive attack on the ''La Cailum''. Because of the urgency of the situation, Amuro and his team basically threw it together, slapped on whatever weapons they could find, then launched without fine-tuning the instruments. This does come to bite Amuro in the ass during the Nu Gundam's second sortie against Gyunei.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Hit [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Sayla Mass]] ''hard''. Despite being the protagonist's one-time LoveInterest and the antagonist's sister, she's only mentioned once in the film (referred to as her true name "Artesia" by Char in a flashback to the death of Lalah Sune) and never seen at all. What makes this particularly surprising is the cameo she had in ''Gundam ZZ'' was meant to foreshadow the movie.
** Though it does make a bit of sense: it's made pretty clear towards the end of the original series that as far as Sayla's concerned, her brother is dead and Char's nothing more than the thing that killed him.
*** And yet, in the above cameo, she said she'd hate to sit on the sidelines and let Char go through with whatever he was planning.
*** [[Creator/YouInoue Sayla's voice actor]] was unavailable...''again''.

* YourSizeMayVary: The Sazabi's cockpit ball changes size wildly between the scene where it's loaded into the mobile suit's head and [[spoiler:when the Nu Gundam grabs it after ejecting from the Sazabi's shattered remains]]. Proportionately speaking, given that the Sazabi is about as big as the Nu Gundam, the size the cockpit is [[spoiler:when Amuro catches it is more likely to be the correct size]].
