* {{Badass}} - Carozzo/Iron Mask. When[[spoiler: a sniper tries to assassinate him]] in the middle of a speech he doesn't even flinch, he just keeps talking and even makes an epic BadassBoast(seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKLkxFfVulI here]] in all of its glory). He also shows some epic badassery when he [[spoiler: jumps out of the Rafflesia and tears open Cecily's cockpit]] with his bare hands. In outer space. [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace Without a space suit]].
* BadassNormal - Seabook, while he is a Newtype, is closer to Kou Uraki and Shiro Amada than Amuro Ray. His Newtype powers simply aren't very strong.
* BatheHerAndBringHerToMe - A non-sexual version, as the people who have taken Cecily/Berah are [[spoiler: Her father and grandfather, head of the Crossbone Vanguard]]
* BigBad - Carozzo
* BlueBlood - Subverted. The Ronahs took (and bought) their titles and last name from a family of European nobles [[ImpoverishedPatrician who'd fallen on hard times]] long before the events of the ''F91.''

* CallingTheOldManOut - Seabook has serious issues with his mother Monica choosing to develop mobile suits over raising him and his sister Reese.
** DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou - What Reese sort of thinks about the deal.

* CompressedAdaptation - Oh so very much, seeing as the 13 episodes they did have scripted then became the basis of the movie. Interestingly, while watching the movie, one can almost point to certain scenes and predict where an "episode" would have started or ended, were it to ever be stretched back out into a series. The movie begins to make much more sense, if one decompresses it in their mind to "actually taking place over a few days/weeks/whatever that we, the viewers, just don't get to see thanks to the crunch."
* DefectorFromDecadence - Annamarie.

* DeflectorShield - In the form of Beam Shields, Gundam F91 and the Crossbone Vanguard mobile suits all have these, which actually seem to do their job (Considering UC century normal shields are about as protective as cardboard).

* TheEmpire - Cosmo Babylonia is one that's created overnight.

* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses - Cecily is the daughter of the Vanguard's leader.
* EyepatchOfPower - Zabine
* TheFederation - Portrayed here as useless rather than malevolent.
* FlashStep - The F91 appears to be able to do this, but all it's really doing is ablating thin layers of its armor to help vent off excess heat. Nevertheless, this lets Seabook take down Carozzo and the Rafflesia.

* FreudianExcuse - Carozzo wants to massacre all people on Earth because of a combination of the way he was raised and the fact that his wife left him for another man.
* FromNobodyToNightmare - The Ronahs, while not exactly nobodies, were simply a business-oriented family in the earlier UC years, their salvage firm Buch Concern small-fry compared to Anaheim Electronics. They used their relative obscurity to their advantage however, expanding their businesses and social contacts until they were in a position to run their own army, mass-produce their own mobile suit lines and eventually forge Cosmo Babylonia.
* HeroesWantRedheads - Cecily.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard - How Seabook ultimately defeats Carozzo's Raflessia. [[spoiler:By using the F91's FlashStep to direct the Reflessia's turrets towards Carozzo, in other words shooting himself.]]
* HumongousMecha - Yep.
* IdiotHero - Seabook spends most of the movie looking deeply confused as to what the Hell is going on. Thus, he is much like the audience.
* ImportantHaircut - Cecily chops off her long hair herself, when she re-takes her true identity of Berah Rona.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope - ''F91'' and its side materials mark the point where Anaheim Electronics goes from kind of scummy[[note]]:As in ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'', selling MS to both sides, with the vague justification of "The Titans were onto us, we had to!"[[/note]] to '''very''' scummy, all because they lost their Federation contracts to SNRI. In the manga ''Silhouette Formula 91'' Anaheim steals the F91's tech for their own Silhouette Gundam[[note]]Whose model number is RX''F-91''. Subtle.[[/note]], and the SuperFamicom game ''Gundam F90: Formula Wars 0122'', where they help a group of Mars-based Zeon remnants invade Earth, apparently as a "screw you" to the Feddies.
* LadyOfWar - Cecily
* LaResistance - Pathetically, a bunch of civilians put up more fight than the entire Federation. Explained by Seabook theorizing over a news broadcast that [[spoiler:the Federation leadership on Earth is only putting up a token fight, hoping to buy off the Crossbone Vanguard by giving them Frontier Side, and preventing an attack on Earth itself]].

* RoyallyScrewedUp - Cecily/Berah is fine and Meitzer is a would-be Napoleon but otherwise quite sane. The rest of the family seems to be stark raving mad.

* ShedArmorGainSpeed - Inverted: F91's incredible speed causes it to heat up to the point that its outer layers of armor are burned off.
* SpentShellsShower - in one memorable scene a woman gets hit on the head by a spent casing from one of the defending Mobile suit units, killing her.
* SuperPrototype - Averted. The F91 Seabook pilots in the movie is simply the first one to roll out from SNRI's facilities. The mass-production models seen in ''Manga/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam'' are very much the same.
* WarIsHell - The anime totally shows many people getting killed in the wake of the Crossbones attack. A woman dies when she gets hit by a mobile suit sized shell, and bunch of people are crushed by falling debris, and they were having party at that time! Plus the Feddies are more than willing to shoot at locations where the civilians are to attack the enemy.
* WellIntentionedExtremist - Meitzer, who believes that humanity needs to be ruled over by an elite noble class for its own good.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse - For a group of people once considered the next step in human evolution, Newtypes are treated as though they're an endangered species. Although given what happened prior to ''F91'', they could just be hiding in plain sight.
* TheWorfEffect : [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Londo Bell]], the Earth Federation's elite paramilitary force, is briefly revealed to be still in action in UC 123. Unfortunately, they've become so bloated and weak that the Crossbone Vanguard wipes it out permanently.

* EnergyWeapons - It's Gundam. Some new additions include:
** Beam Sign... it's a shaped beam used as basically a flag for unit commanders.
** The VSBR (Variable Speed Beam Rifle). This is a weapon where the user can adjust the width of the beam, meaning it can be a broad, sweeping beam or a high powered narrow beam that can even penetrate beam shields.

* GenreSavvy - Birgit tells Seabook that Gundam pilots tend to live tragic lives.
** Taking what he says into account, this basically means that not only has Newtypes leading shitty lives being held as common knowledge, but historical FACT for many.

* ScrewThisImOutOfHere: This is actually the driving motivation for the protagonists' group. Despite the battles they get into, Seabook and his friends knew they were just civilians and the military personnel around them knew that too. Their initial goal was simply to get somewhere safe, and their final mission was actually to escape from all the fighting. Fighting with Carozzo was actually a side-mission.

The Gundam F91 story was fleshed out in much greater detail in Tomino's two-part novelization. Tomino's manga, ''CrossboneGundam'', is a direct sequel which takes place ten years after the events of the movie.
