* RealityEnsues: The original Ple was an InnocentFanserviceGirl who was both a source of comic relief and a shameless attempt to cash in on the then-nascent LoliCon demographic. Then we get a look at Ple 12's backstory and suddenly sexualizing underage girls isn't so funny anymore.

* VoodooShark: The missing clause in the Federation Charter regarding a "space-adapted Humanity", typically believed to refer to Newtypes, makes no sense. Zeon Zum Deikun, the man who first theorized the appearance of a "new type" of humanity upon migrating into space, was born in U.C. 0009 and started spreading his philosophy in 0046, ''four and a half decades after the Laplace incident took place''. Which doesn't even get into the [[UnfortunateImplications implications]] of giving Newtypes priority in running the Federation. Considering Newtypes have only demonstrated their super-empathy with other Newtypes, it would all but guarantee the rise of a psychic MasterRace aristocracy. Looking at the Laplace incident in this light makes the perpetrators come off [[UnintentionallySympathetic looking more like heroes]] than a bunch of greedy bastards.
* WarForFunAndProfit: One cannot stop thinking that Anacheim Electronics have stirred most of the Earth Sphere wars since OYW to sell mobile suits to both sides. Actually lampshaded by Tomura, the ''Garencieres''' mechanic, while discussing with Banagher why the EF and Zeon's hardware is compatible.

''Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn'' is a 7-episode 2010-2014 OVA series directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi, features music by Music/HiroyukiSawano (who would later compose the music for ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' and ''Anime/KillLaKill'', among many other projects), and is based on a novel series by Harutoshi Fukui, described by some as Japan's Creator/TomClancy and famous for his military novels about the Imperial Japanese Army and KaijuDefenseForce. And infamous for adding militaristic flavor and portraying the Japanese military as heroic, which makes some of Japan's neighbors go a bit...crazy.

UC 0096 -- Three years after [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char Aznable almost hit the Earth with a giant space rock]], OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Banagher Links stumbles across a mysterious and attractive girl calling herself Audrey Burne. Meanwhile, a secret deal between the Vist Foundation and renegade Neo-Zeon forces led by a Char-lookalike named "Full Frontal", involving an artifact called "Laplace's Box" that's said to contain the power to destroy the Federation if ever opened, [[GoneHorriblyWrong goes very, ''very'' wrong]]. Next thing Banagher knows, the colony is collapsing around him and he's [[FallingIntoTheCockpit fallen into the cockpit]] of an obscenely powerful mobile suit: the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam.

* FreeFallRomance: Played with in Episode 5: [[spoiler:Mineva, rejecting Riddhe's offer to elope, jumps into sub-atmospheric free-fall while telepathically calling out to Banagher--symbolically choosing him out of her LoveTriangle. He, despite being locked in battle with the Banshee, immediately abandons the fight to catch Mineva with Unicorn.]]

** The Kshatriya Repaired is armed with funnel missiles (or at least a primitive version of them[[note]]improvised by strapping grenades to the funnels in lieu of their beam-firing capabilities[[/note]]), a technology which first appeared properly in the novel ''Hathaway's Flash'', which was written in 1989 but takes place 9 years after ''Unicorn''. This could also be considered an example of CanonImmigrant, since ''Hathaway's Flash'' is a direct sequel to the ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack'' novelization ''Beltochika's Children'' rather than the anime version.

** The Gustav Karl from ''Hathaway's Flash'' makes an appearance in Episode Seven. Here though, its existence is explained as being newly-developed offshoots of the same project that spawned the Unicorn and Banshee.
