* SpellMyNameWithAnS: One of the worst offenders in anime history - pick any character on the cast, and you're guaranteed to find at least three different variations on his or her name. Special mention goes to Quattro Bajeena, whose last name has been romanized in a very... ''interesting'' way on occasion - see some of the Gundam video games for the PS1 to see what I mean.

* ArmorIsUseless: Actually something of a plot point. With the widespread use of [[EnergyWeapons beam weaponry]], conventional armor became largely... well... useless. This resulted in the advent of 'movable frame' technology, where mobile suits were no longer made of big blocks of metal, but freely-moving armor plates over a flexible, agile 'skeleton'. Not only did this boost their manoeuvrability tremendously, but it eventually led to suit engineers figuring out that you could contort the frame into a non-humanoid shape if you wanted... and thus the TransformingMecha was born.

Zeta Gundam features a much older and mature new cast; however, is supported by many characters from the original series such as Captain Bright Noah, Amuro Ray, and Char Aznable wearing a PaperThinDisguise as Quattro Bajeena.

In 2005, a series of movies began which remastered the series' animation and added new animation as well. In addition, the story was given a new, LighterAndSofter BittersweetEnding that apparently retcons ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' and possibly ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack'', if not the entire rest of the Universal Century timeline, out of canon, if not for [[YoshiyukiTomino Tomino]] [[WordOfGod explicitly saying]] it's just an AlternateUniverse retelling of ''Zeta''.

''Zeta'' is a mainstay in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', being in every game until ''Judgment'', where after that all UC was excluded from the handheld titles, but reappears in Z and Another Century's Episode R, as well as returning UC to handhelds in Z2.

%%* FragileSpeedster: The design aesthetic behind nearly all suits of the 0080s, with the exception of [[MightyGlacier the Psyco Gundams]] and [[LightningBruiser the PMX series]]. See ArmorIsUseless above.

%%* * FragileSpeedster: The design aesthetic behind nearly all suits Most of the 0080s, mobile suits in this series sacrifice durability for mobility. Since beam weapons have become commonplace and can rip through most armor with ease, the exception of [[MightyGlacier the Psyco Gundams]] and [[LightningBruiser the PMX series]]. See ArmorIsUseless above.mobility to dodge attacks is more important than armor.

** Several mobile suits gained ancestors from later animated productions. For example, the AEUG's Nemo was made into a descendant of the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080 GM Sniper II]], while the Rick Dias incorporates elements of the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083 Gundam GP02 "Physalis"]].

* KillEmAll: EnforcedTrope - Tomino was seriously depressed when he directed Zeta, which ultimately lead to ZZ. The last episodes are the incarnation of this trope. Only worse could have been an 'End of the world' DownerEnding, like [[SpaceRunawayIdeon he did five years prior]].

* WorfEffect: Char, ultimately. Despite being one of the most experienced pilots, piloting two of the most advanced Mobile Suits in the series, he is usually knocked out or suffers damage. Hell, despite being arguably a better pilot than either Haman or Scirocco, he can't score ANY decisive blows on them.

Hell, despite being arguably a better pilot than either Haman or Scirocco, he can't score ANY decisive blows on them. It doesn't help that his mobile suit, the Hyaku Shiki, is a failed prototype (Delta Gundam) that, while a high performance unit, is also plagued with frame defects from being an experimental transforming mobile suit.

* MildlyMilitary: A dark variation. The Titans, being a StateSec organization, have no respect for any military protocol that isn't their own; Bright Noa is beaten half to death for trying to bring them into line.

** The AEUG meanwhile are a more benign example. It's also justified as a way to maintain order given how it's comprised of various groups in addition to disgruntled Federation personnel.
