%%!!Fellow tropers: TVTropes is a wiki dedicated to compiling ''story and character tropes'', not attesting your fiery hatred for every single aspect of a particular show. So before you add yet another complaint about ''Gundam SEED Destiny'', take a closer look at the list; aren't there enough complaints already? Complaining isn't going to make the show better. Instead, why don't you just pour yourself some chocolate milk, pop a few anti-depressants, and re-watch ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' or another ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' series of your choice until your crippling rage subsides.!!

** The [[CompilationMovie Special Editions]] manage to be surprisingly improved thanks to editing out some of the more hated elements. Many are hoping that the HD Remaster will do something similar.

* AllYourPowersCombined: In a rare mecha example, the Destiny's design is an AllYourPowersCombined version of the Impulse's (and [[{{Expy}} Strike's]]) various {{Mecha Expansion Pack}}s -- agility, [[{{BFG}} massive firepower]], and a [[{{BFS}} really big sword]] all at once instead of one at a time!
** As it turns out, the Destiny's design was recycled from the original design for the Freedom, which was meant to have the same concept but proved too difficult to animate at the time. This explains why [[FridgeBrilliance it looks like it combines all of the Strike's Striker Packs instead of the Impulse's Silhouette Packs]].

* {{BadassNormal}}: Neo Roanoke, who is a natural that can hold his own against coordinators and gundams using a mook suit. He Even destroyed the Freedom's shield, with a rocket powered exploding kunai.
* {{Badass Longcoat}}: Gilbert Durrandal's Supreme Councilman uniform has one.

* ChekhovsSkill: Athrun shows off some incredibly ImprobableAimingSkills on the ''Minerva's'' firing range by scoring headshot after headshot on a series of rapidly deploying targets in Phase 07. Much later, in Phase 46, we see those skills in action for real when he takes out an entire team of hitmen with submachine guns & grenades, using only a handgun.

* CompositeCharacter: Shinn is prety much one to both [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Amuro]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Kamille]]. His Impulse is similar to The RX-78 Gundam - a CombiningMecha consisting of legs as one section, upper body as another, and SpaceFighter[=/=]MetaMecha cockpit as the torso, with a very similar red-with-gold-cross design for its shield. Shins' dub voice is Amuro's Zeta dub voice. Shin also has {{Wangst}} UnstoppableRage due to suffering through a TraumaCongaLine, and [[LoveHurts romantic troubles]] with his [[DatingCatwoman enemy-cum-love interest]] just like Kamille.
** Stella is Rosamia Badam, living Four Murasame's life.

* ReplacementScrappy: Lord Djibril is an in-universe example, lacking the [[SmugSnake charisma]] and intelligence of his predecessor, Muruta Azrael.
* {{Retcon}}: A FlashBack at the beginning of the 1st episode implies that Kira may have accidentally killed the Asuka family. Later on, another FlashBack clearly shows that Kira was not at fault. However, they are inconsistent with one another.
** Actually, the official cause of death of Shinn's family was that they were caught in a crossfire between the Freedom and Calamity, which was restored in TV Movie 1.

* WhatTheHellHero: Shinn pretty much blames all that happened at Orb on Cagalli, and he isn't exactly subtle about revealing his opinions. In fact, Shinn calls out Cagalli so much it's nearly a OncePerEpisode deal.

* BothSidesHaveAPoint: Kira and Athrun during their argument in episode 25. Kira is correct, that the fact that Coordinators being sent to kill Lacus places Durandal under suspicion and that nothing can be accomplished by simply letting Orb, the Alliance, and Zaft, fight against one another. On the other hand, Athrun is right when he points out that there are multiple factions within the Plants, as seen by the group that caused Junius 7 to fall on Earth, and that the current war has been started and escalated by the Alliance. Athrun also has a point when he suggests that instead of trying to stop Orb's forces on the battlefield, Cagalli should return to the country itself to get it back under control.
* BridgeBunnies: Meyrin, most prominantly.

* HiddenBuxom: Lacus, if the post-commercial intro is any indication. Perhaps Meer was more accurate body double than we thought?


Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfSexy: Lacus' modest bust is inflated to Meer-levels in the eyecatch and some official art. She's never anywhere near that stacked in canon.

* FighterLaunchingSequence: Gratuitously abused; the launch sequence combined with the combination sequence for the Impulse Gundam seemed blocked to eat the maximum possible amount of screen time.

* PrecisionFStrike: In the English dub, Lunamaria says "[[OhCrap Oh fuck]]" upon being told that they're going to have to fight underwater, where her WeaponOfChoice beam cannon is no good.
** Also, in Phase 12, as well as the first TV Movie, Shinn says, "Aww, shit!" when a Zamza-Zah grabs Impulse's leg. You can see it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2ZpTzmNnik here]].
