* FromTheMouthsOfBabes: The backstory for Duo Maxwell gives him a non-swearing example of this. During a conversation with the priest and nun who raised him, he says he doesn't believe in God, but he does believe in [[{{Shinigami}} the God of Death]], because as he puts it, "I've never seen any miracles, but I've seen lots and lots of dead people!" The nun admonishes him gently, but the priest laughs and admits the boy has a point.

Super Robot Wars and Another Century's Episode are games, not tropes.
* VideoGame/SuperRobotWars: One of the go-to series; more often than not, ''Endless Waltz'' is used, to the growing frustration of the fans who'd like to see the TV series for the sake of variety, which was only used for [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars4 F, F Final]], [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars64 64]], VideoGame/{{Shin|SuperRobotWars}}, [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Alpha]], and [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsDestiny D]] and finally [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ Z2]] and is set to be a part of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars OE'' (Operation Extend) ** AnotherCenturysEpisode: The TV series plays a large role in the first game, while ''Endless Waltz'' gets the standard ''SRW'' treatment in the second, and the third goes a step further by cutting it back to '''only''' Heero and Wing Zero EW, who's almost just a cameo from the Wing series.

* NoLovesIntersect: Each of the pilots has a single, solitary female potential LoveInterest, and that pilot is their only LoveInterest. However, due to NoHuggingNoKissing almost none of the couples are resolved at the end, giving shippers free reign to do as they choose (not that being an OfficialCouple would stop or even slow them).

* BatmanGambit: OZ baits the Gundam pilots into killing the UESA leadership that had actively been seeking peace with the colonies, which in turn prompts the surviving leadership to declare war on the Gundams and their colonial allies and thus deny the Gundams their credibility to the rattled public. This all gives OZ the legitimacy it requires as they move to usurp control of Earth from the now shattered and disorganized UESA and continue their own campaign against the colonies.

** The ''Endless Waltz'' version of Heavyarms ** Wing Zero
to:
** The ''Endless Waltz'' version of Heavyarms Heavyarms carries a dual-barreled gatling cannon in each hand in the final battle. ** Wing ZeroZero's Twin Buster Rifle is two guns that can either be wielded separately (done on multiple occasions) or joined into one gun that can fire an even more powerful shot.

* HandshakeRefusal: when future rivals Heero and Zechs meet face-to-face for the first time, Zechs offers his hand. After a pause, Heero accepts the gesture while remarking that he's never shaken hands with anybody before. This could be because Zechs has shown himself to be very honest and honorable, especially for a member of OZ.

** To be fair, both men have a strong sense of honor. Treize let him go because Wufei accepted his sword duel challenge, and then lost fair and square, when he could have easily smashed Treize's cabin just moments earlier. In Wufei's case, he likely wouldn't be able to live with himself had he of killed Treize in such a cowardly way after having been beaten in a fair fight, further evidenced by his HeroicBSOD in episode 12.

** Wing Zero is a SuperPrototype ''to'' [[SuperPrototype Super Prototypes]]! ** Tallgeese was a super prototype, but with the one flaw (that it shares with Wing Zero) of being a little too super for pilots to handle.

** Wing Zero is a the SuperPrototype ''to'' [[SuperPrototype Super Prototypes]]! to all of the other Gundams, with each of the scientists taking its design plans and spinning them in a unique manner. ** Tallgeese was a super prototype, but prototype to the Leo suits, with the one its major flaw (that it shares with Wing Zero) of being a little too super for normal pilots to handle.

* CharacterTics: Since the Gundam pilots switch suits quite often in this series, it's interesting to see the fighting styles of their respective Gundams translated into other suits. Examples: ** When Trowa used Wing, he held the buster rifle like an actual rifle instead of shooting it like a pistol like Heero usually does. He also dual wields the Taurus' default beam rifle and cannon. In Endless Waltz, his signature jump flip enabled Heero to identify him when using an enemy MS. ** When Heero used the Heavyarms, Trowa outfitted it with a beam saber, which worked better for the former than the Heavyarms' default knife. ** When Quatre used a Taurus, he dual wields beam sabers.

* LighterAndSofter: Compared to other Gundam shows, with fewer major deaths and horrific disasters and war crimes in this one, complete with a happy ending.

* LighterAndSofter: Compared to other Gundam shows, with fewer major deaths and horrific disasters and war crimes in this one, complete with a happy ending. To make up for that there's little humor, and a heck of a lot more ContemplateOurNavels moments.

** Well, before Epyon Zechs had been using the Wing Zero, while Heero had been using Epyon (gifted to him by Treize) after the Wing Gundam was disabled. Also, Heavyarms was upgraded with two heavy gatlings instead of one like the first model, and Sandrock was upgraded with longer and more powerful blades as well as space maneuverability, which was something the Sandrock lacked.
