''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]] and [[EpilepticTrees believed by some to be Char Aznable's great-grandson]], finds himself the pilot of the League Militaire's frontline mobile suit, the [[TitleDrop Victory Gundam]], in an attempt to defeat the Zanscare forces.

* AlasPoorVillain: Several characters in the Zanscare side get these. Good examples are [[spoiler: the kind-hearted pilot that Usso killed in battle and deeply regretted it]], [[spoiler: the StarCrossedLovers Karinga and Kisharl who end up ''killing each other'']], and [[spoiler: the BattleCouple of [[BikerBabe Renda]] and [[BadassBiker Duker]]... who mix this with SoCoolItsAwesome, as [[TogetherInDeath their souls are seen riding together on a Harley towards the afterlife]].]]

* 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:

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

*** That's because the Victory Gundam is just about the only Gundam to be mass produced. That may or may not be Uso's Victory Gundam.

* 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]]
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Some have called this on the beam rotor technology, pointing out that non-physical propellers would not displace air nearly enough to generate lift. [[AllThereInTheManual Supplementary materials]] indicate that the beam rotors do not work by displacing air at all, rather, the spinning of the beams acts as an external Minovsky Drive, generating a slight anti-gravity effect around them. It's not nearly as powerful as the fully internal Minovsky Drive System incorporated into the Victory Gundams, but still saves a ton on fuel consumption.

* VideoGame/SuperRobotWars: Hasn't appeared as many times as other Gundam series but nevertheless has appeared more than others. It has been used in 2G, [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Alpha, Alpha Gaiden]], [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsDestiny D]] and ''VideoGame/ShinSuperRobotWars''.
** It was originally planned to be in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ Z]]''[[note]]Fans hacked the game data and discovered unused voice clips of Amuro supporting Uso (and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Judau]].[[/note]], but got cut for yet-unknown reasons.

* HistoryRepeats: This series drives home just how much the Universal Century has failed to deliver on the original aspirations of those who founded it. A motif that is revisited in ''MobileSuitGundamUnicorn''.
