* AdaptationExpansion: ''Glory of Losers'' can best be described as the TV series rewritten with full knowledge of all the After Colony stories. In Chapter 2 alone, we get Duo's ''Endless Waltz'' flashback, scenes from ''Episode Zero'', and Heero referring to Zechs' Leo as a Gryph, a pre-series mecha from ''Frozen Teardrop''.

* ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks: Deathscythe's buster shield is specifically designed to be a weapon, mounting a beam blade and rocket thrusters that make it a flying drill. Wu Fei throws Shenlong and Altron's shields once or twice as well, aided by their discus (or perhaps ''CaptainAmerica'')-like shape.

Aside from a number of prequel and sequel mangas, an official sequel, the novel ''New Mobile Report Gundam Wing: Frozen Teardrop'' was published in August of 2010. ''Frozen Teardrop'' takes place on Mars (and uses the Mars Century calendar to keep track of the orbital differences) a few decades after the events of ''Endless Waltz'' and sees the children of various ''Wing'' characters end up embroiled in battles and political intrigue right alongside their parents and mentors. The novel's story also fleshes out the backstories for Heero Yuy and Treize Kushrenada.

Kushrenada. Running simultaneously (staring in September 2010), ''New Mobile Report Gundam Wing Endless Waltz: The Glory of Losers'' serves as a retelling of the TV series, while tying in with ''Frozen Teardrop'', incorporating elements from the other side stories, and using Hajime Katoki's redesigns of the Gundams from ''Endless Waltz'' and the model lines.

'''''Shin Kidou Senki Gundam Wing''''' (lit. "New Mobile Report Gundam Wing"), or simply '''''Gundam Wing''''', is one of the more (in)famous of the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' {{Alternate Universe}}s. Aired in Japan in 1995, this 49-episode series was brought to the United States (and eventually worldwide) in 2000 on {{Toonami}}, which helped push Gundam into the Western mainstream.

* 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.

* 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.
