* HoverSkates: The Dom moves with these. The large exhaust ducts on their legs that allow for it prompt Federation pilots to call them "skirts".

* {{Foil}}: This series can count as one to the previous One-Year War OVA series, ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory''. For starters, the former focused heavily on SuperPrototype Gundam units, with the battles fought mostly in space. This is is practically the opposite, with the Gundams in question being limited production MechaMooks, with most of the battles being fought on the ground.

* LaResistance: The locals fighting Zeon. They're not especially fond of the Earth Federation either.

* CallForward: A case of GeniusBonus and "blink and you'd miss it". In the very first scene the 04th MS Team is moving out from headquarters; this is the one lead by South Burning from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory''. You can even hear someone--probably Monsha--shouting as they move out.

* ShownTheirWork: The [=OP=] showed scenes where Terry and Shiro were interacting with the local populace peacefully. This is an example of what the military would do in an anti-insurgency operation in order to get the populace to support the military instead of anti-government forces.

* AlphaStrike: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] when Shiro attacks Norris by sliding down the side of a building while firing all of the Ez-8's weapons simultaneously, only to miss entirely. Norris even [[LampshadeHanging comments]] "Well, that ''looked'' impressive".

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Shiro and his team in general are pretty decent folks, with Shiro himself being a TechnicalPacifist. That said, they're definitely competent in what they do. Not to mention that Shiro [[spoiler:drops said TechnicalPacifist clause against Ginias and actively kills him]].
* {{BFG}}: Both sides of the conflict occasionally use cannons that are quite large even on the scale of HumongousMecha. [[TheBigGuy Sanders]] wields the 08th Team's in the latter half of the show.

* ColonelBadass: Norris Packard, holds the naval rank of captain, equal to an army colonel. He is also a {{Badass}}.
* CranialProcessingUnit: {{Averted}}; Karen's Gundam remains operational even after getting its head punched off, and even manages to destroy its attacker with a bit of help aiming (and the only reason it needed help was that its cockpit displays had been smashed in addition to its head being removed).

After that they're able to get her Gundam functioning again by simply replacing the head with one from a GM.



* DuringTheWar: Another One Year War side-story, and also a thin allegory for Vietnam. Thin to the point that it could easily be taking place ''in'' Vietnam.

* FanService: Kiki's introduction in the second episode features her swimming naked in a pool below a waterfall. The viewer [[NippleAndDimed gets a good few shots of Kiki's anatomically-correct breasts]]. Although, depending on the person, these scenes are done more as a [[ItsNotPornItsArt form of artistic expression than as a means of simplistic fanservice]]. Shiro doesn't even react beyond simply stating "she's pretty". (''Kiki's'' reaction is a bit stronger -- her PervertRevengeMode involves firearms.)

* RealityEnsues: One of the reasons this series in particular is so loved by a lot of the fandom is because the Gundams are not portrayed as the miraculous superweapons of the previous series. The machines need maintenance (''lots'' of it), repairs after battle are resource and time-consuming, and the environment adversely affects them. One of the biggest obstacles the heroes face in the series is ''sand'' getting into the joints and components of their machines causing them to break down.

* {{Shinigami}}: Sanders's nickname, translated as "Grim Reaper" in the dub. See SoleSurvivor, below.



* SoleSurvivor: Sanders, multiple times in the backstory. Every team he's been on has been wiped out, leaving him the sole survivor, on his third mission with that team. It's uncertain how many times this happened, but it was enough to give him a reputation for getting his teams killed. See {{Shinigami}} above.

* SuperPrototype: A surprising aversion in the ''Gundam'' franchise: Shiro and company only use limited or mass production model mobile suits. The Zeon forces do have one example in the Apsalus mobile armor.

* VehicularTurnabout: Attempted by a group of guerilla fighters. [[MsFanservice Kiki]] lands on top of Shiro's cockpit, tricking him into open it to reveal a band of rebels waiting to take his Gundam at gunpoint. {{Subverted}} when it's quickly made apparant that none of the guerillas have the first idea how to operate his Gundam, and when Shiro is not inclined to help them. They opt to take him prisoner instead.
