* CrapsackWorld: The absolute low point of the Universal Century... which is saying something.

* CrapsackWorld: The absolute low point of the Universal Century... which is saying something.something with the Earth Federation becoming a shell of its former self and most nation-states, cities and global cooperation being non-existent due to years of constant wars.



* DarkerAndEdgier: Even more than ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]''. It was so dark and depressing that Tomino told the [=DVD=] buyers not to watch it in his introduction booklet. In addition it has lots and lots of violent deaths, far more than Zeta could even aspire to.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: The name of the Shokew (pronounced "Shakkoo") series of mobile suits comes from the Japanese word for snow goggles, "shakoki", referencing the odd-looking, squinty eyes typical of Zanscare MS, apparently designed to invoke the famous shakoki-dogu clay figurines of ancient Japan.

* BloodierAndGorier: Notorious for it, especially for a UC series (though it later got beaten out by GundamSEED and Gundam00 for the title of bloodiest show in the franchise).

* ArtisticLicenseNuclearPhysics: Particularly {{egregious}} in a few episodes where the protagonists must refrain from destroying the enemy mobile suits during [[spoiler:the second Earth invasion arc]] in order to prevent their reactors from going nuclear and contaminating the landscape. While reactors that get pierced by beam weapons do make a big explosion from the plasma their I-field is containing suddenly releasing itself into the environment, this would cause the pressure within the reactor to drop, ''decreasing'' the rate of fusion and pretty much ensuring that there ''wouldn't'' be a nuclear explosion.[[note]]Note that the setting is so bleak that it's entirely possible that the engineers of both sides specifically designed the reactors to violently explode in order to dissuade attackers with the threat of a massive explosion as well as providing a self destruct mechanism that in addition prevents enemies from capturing and copying the more advanced machines.[[/note]]

* CoolBike: By WordOfGod, this [[WhatCouldHaveBeen is motif for many of Zanscare's mechanic]], result in them have two wheels in their design (for examples, Keilas Guilie cannon's particle generators and Contio's shot claw mounts). The straight examples are two models of armored bike, bike-like mobile armor Galicson, and battleships that can tranform into gigantic bike, Adrastea and Lysithea.

''Victory Gundam'' takes place in the year U.C. 0153 of the time-line. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char's rebellion]] 60 years ago and the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamF91 Crossbone]] [[Manga/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam Vanguard]] 30 years ago have reduced the [[TheFederation Earth Federation]] to complete impotency. The [[TheEmpire Zanscare Empire]], taking advantage of the situation, proceeds to invade Earth so that they can bring it under their control. In response, a group called the [[LaResistance League Militaire]] rises up to defend the Earth in the Federation's place. Uso Evin, [[ImprobableAge the youngest Gundam protagonist yet]], finds himself the pilot of the League Militaire's frontline mobile suit, the [[TitleDrop Victory Gundam]], in an attempt to defeat the Zanscare forces.

** There's some confusion over his first name as well. The spelling "Uso" is used a lot, but the katakana actually read "Usso" (ウッソ), while ''DynastyWarriorsGundam'' uses "Üso".

* FateWorseThanDeath [[spoiler:Katejina]] survives... but is blinded, broke, and amnesiac. However, since she crossed the MoralEventHorizon more than once, that can be considered her just punishment.
