* CarFu: The tank variant.

** Used later with the 440-Guntank to help take out an enemy.

* FragileSpeedster: Surprisingly applied to the gigantic Zakus when fighting against Federation infantry/Tanks in Gravity Front. In general, the average Zaku is shown to be ''very'' vulnerable to infantry deployed guided missiles and Type 61's cannon fire (the latter is somewhat justified, given that ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamThe08thMSTeam'' showed suits on both sides using tank cannons as {{BFG}}s). Provided the rounds hit, of course. Fortunately, even mook Zakus seem capable of [[DodgeTheBullet dodging cannon fire]]. Also overlaps with GlassCannon, since the Zakus also have a tremendous firepower advantage over the tanks with their gigantic machine guns and bazookas.

''Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO'' is a CGI Franchise/{{Gundam}} feature which takes place during the One Year War. Three series have been released under the title, each one three episodes long:

* ''The Hidden One Year War'', which follows the exploits of the crew of the ''Jotunheim'', a Zeon cargo ship that is tasked with testing prototype weapons. This was originally exclusively shown at Bandai Museum in Matsudo, Japan but has seen a limited release on DVD.

* ''Apocalypse 0079'', which is set during the final month of the One Year War. As they slowly loose ground to the Earth Federation Forces, the Zeonic military begins sending previously-mothballed prototypes to the crew of the Jotunheim in a desperate attempt to find a new weapon against the encroaching Earth forces. Unlike its predicessor, this OVA series was released direct to DVD starting in April 2006.

* ActionGirl - Monique Cadillac: She at first seems to just be an obnoxious officer, but when push comes to shove she'll gladly jump into the fray even if she's piloting a screaming metal death trap like the Zudah.
* AllCGICartoon - The main thing that connects the two series released under this title is that they are the only examples of this trope in the Gundam franchise.
* AnyoneCanDie - It's the Universal Century, [[NominalImportance even having a name won't save you.]]
** Incidentally, everybody who pilots/operates the titular suit/weapon of the episode dies before the end of said episode, with only [[spoiler:Oliver May]] being the exception.

* FlawedPrototype - Most of the prototypes that appear in ''MS IGLOO 1'' are AwesomeButImpractical and were used as mere propaganda: the Jormungand is an outdated and useless cannon, the Hildolfr is tank that was already marked as a failure, the Zudah breaks apart if its thrusters are used at high output, the Oggo is just a worker pod outfitted with weapons (very much like the Ball).

This happens when the pilots can tell if the other is not on the battlefield they're going to since they both want to save their strength for their fated encounter.

* NotSoDifferent - The most visibly moving episode is the second episode of ''Apocalypse''. The audience realizes, even though the characters do not, that both sides are untrained children.
* NoPronunciationGuide - Oliver May's last name is pronounced like [[VideoGame/FatalFury Mai Shiranui]], not like [[{{Queen}} Brian May]].
* PuttingOnTheReich - Colonel von Kuspen wears a variant of a Waffen-SS officer's uniform. Other than that, it's ''Zeon''.
* RealRobot - Although there are no Gundams in this work.
** The original Gundam does appear very briefly in the form of a video feed recovered from a dead Zeon suit. It can basically be summed up as "[[MookHorrorShow This is what it's like to be killed by]] [[TheDreaded Amuro Ray]]."
** Needless to say, Oliver himself is utterly frightened to see the infamous [[RedBaron White Devil]] that has killed so many of his comrades single-handedly...
