* ShoutOut: A rather surprising one, at that; according to WordOfGod, Zechs' mask is modeled on the one from ''PhantomOfTheParadise''.

* RuleOfSymbolism: The entire show is full of meanings and symbolisms related to ''Film/TheWizardOfOz''. Compare Heero's slight Character Development to the Tin Man searching for a heart. Relena's search for working pacifism to Scarecrow's search for a Brain. All the Gundam Pilot's confusion on what they're fighting for and side switching to Dorothy trying to find her way back home (and possibly to the Lion's desire for courage). Also, The ZERO System is comparable to OZ in the sense it gives the pilot the knowledge they have what it takes to win, as OZ gives knowledge to Scarecrow, Tin Man, and the Lion they already have what they seeked. The list can go on.

** Comes back again near the end of the series with White Fang. [[spoilers: They ostensibly have the same goal as the Gundams; to free the colonies, but at this point they're the villains, unintentionally enacting the original Operation Meteor.]]

* {{Badass}}: Pick a character. ''Any'' character. Trowa deserves a special mention as he doesn't need any high-tech beam weapons to fight, and can jump 9 meters in the air to boot!

** Then again, Zechs and Noin get a serious DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything moment in Episode 4, when Noin taps her sword against his while he's on the phone.

* LaResistance: The Gundam pilots and their respective scientists were brought together by their respective five colonies to free them all from a corrupt Earth-based government. White Fang (and in some regard, the Treize Faction) would eventually represent a corrupted version of the very rebellion the Gundam pilots and scientists waged against Earth.

* LeaveBehindAPistol: The Romefeller Foundation's response when Treize turns on them over their use of mobile dolls is to confine him to their headquarters and give him a fancy single-shot pistol.

* TheDreaded: The Gundams and their pilots quickly become this to everyone.



* GreyAndGrayMorality: Click the link for the full details.

to:

* GreyAndGrayMorality: Click Hoo BOY. Well one of the link reasons for the full details. series rather complex morality is there are no real continued factions that last the entire show. The Gundams unlike other series are not connected to any governing body or a group. They are simply all guerrilla soldiers who at first aren't even technically on the same side. As such their enemies change from OZ to Romefeller and then finally the White Fang. As such the war is more between individuals who have their own points and faults.
This list shows the last 10 events of 250. Show all.
