* ArtisticLicensePhysics: The [=PLANT=] space colonies. Unlike the fairly practical [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Island_Three O'Neill cylinder]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_torus Stanford torus]] designs that are standard for the franchise, [=PLANTs=] seem designed around RuleOfCool -- and as a result are both horribly inefficient and much less safe in comparison.

In particular, the sun will sometimes shine through the [=PLANTs'=] windows as they spin, which would would expose the habitats to radiation in case of a solar flare.

* {{Expy}}: Lots of them, thanks to ''SEED'''s similarity to ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' -- about half the main characters qualify, in addition to numerous minor ones. [[labelnote:Details]]Kira is an expy of Amuro, Athrun and Rau are expies of [[CharClone Char]], Murrue is a female version of Bright, Cagalli has shades of Sayla, and Andrew Waltfeld is an expy of Ramba Ral. For minor characters, Tolle and Kuzzey's relationships to Kira are extremely similar to Kai and Hayato's (respectively) to Amuro, and Aisha (Andrew Waltfeld's girlfriend) is a clear expy of Crowley (Ramba Ral's girlfriend).[[/labelnote]] Lacus Clyne is also an expy of Relena Peacecraft of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]''. In terms of character design, there are obvious influences from ''Anime/InfiniteRyvius'', which isn't surprising since they're from Hisashi Hirai, the character designer for both shows. Azrael in particular looks similar to Pat.

** Lacus [[http://imgur.com/WiaqN6c painting a mustache on one of her Haros]] is a clear one to ''Anime/TurnAGundam'', which Fukuda has noted is one of his favorite series by Tomino.

** Lacus [[http://imgur.com/WiaqN6c painting a mustache on one of her Haros]] is a clear one to ''Anime/TurnAGundam'', which Fukuda has noted is one of his favorite series by Tomino. Also, her exit from her escape pod is an homage to [[http://imgur.com/m6Zzm0u Lalah Sune's exit from Char's shuttle]] in episode 39 of ''Mobile Suit Gundam.''

Gundam SEED and the CE timeline have become mainstays in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' after ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Alpha 3]]'', and are the main ''Gundam'' representative on handhelds when all Universal Century Gundams were excluded from the handheld games after ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment Judgment]]''. Gundam SEED also appears in the ''VideoGame/GundamVsSeries'', beginning with its own dedicated game ''Alliance vs. ZAFT'' and continuing on into the {{Crossover}} games.

Added DiffLines:

* SageLoveInterest: Lacus Clyne is this for both Athrun (her original fiance) and Kira (her eventual boyfriend). While not a fighter like them, she has an incredibly sharp mind and knowledge of human nature [[WiseBeyondTheirYears way beyond her age]], which allows her to successfully sort out the conflicted messes that are Athrun and Kira's respective beliefs and motivations in the second half of the series.

* {{Badass}}: Where to begin? Half the cast qualifies at one point or another.

** RealRobot: Ditto. ''Seed'' continues the prod tradition of semi-realistic robots.
