Franchise/{{Gundam}} has always been about war, what causes it, and human evolution. [[MerchandiseDriven But it has also been about model kits]]. In Model Suit Gunpla Builders Beginning G, war is completely ignored and the models become the focus; celebrating thirty years worth of plastic kit building. The story starts when Haru Irei goes to see the Odaiba Gundam with his father. When he decides he wants to build a model kit, he fails to pick up the last [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam RX-78]] and instead stumbles upon a rare model kit; the Beginning Gundam. Upon completing it, he starts to play in the Gunpla Battle video game where his model is scanned into a computer so he can actually pilot it against other model kits. In one of these battles he meets the mysterious Boris Schauer, who shows him how deep the world of Gunpla can get.

* OriginalGeneration: The Beginning Gundam is the only one not modded from a mecha from the ''Gundam'' franchise (an odd choice for the leading character considering the whole {{homage}} thing).

* SpiritualSuccessor: To an old manga called ''Plamo Kyo Shiro'' (most notable for being the originator of the Perfect Gundam armor for the original RX-78-2 [[CanonImmigrant which has since appeared as an actual upgrade for it in various video games and other media rather than a fanboy's kitbash]]). Now has one in the upcoming series ''Gundam Build Fighters'' which expands the idea more further.

* BeautifulAllAlong: In ''J'', when Figlia Contini remove her glasses, both [[TheHero Takeru Nekki]] and [[TheChick Hikari Arisugawa]] are quite shock. * CharClone: Boris Schauer. One may argue that he might just be a cosplaying Char fanboy, but he still serves a similar role, being StealthMentor, and later TheRival to Haru. Oh, and he gets around riding CoolHorse, just like [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Char]]. * CosplayOtakuGirl: Saki Mishima of ''Gunpla Builder D'' always dressed in ElegantGothicLolita costume and she's a gunpla builder. When entering a Gunpla Battle, Saki switches her contact lens from usual gold to red, just to emulate the RedEyesTakeWarning trope. In the 7th chapter, she switches her costume to a [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam mobile trace suit]]. ** [[{{Meganekko}} Figlia Contini]] from ''Gunpla Builder J'' walks around in a military officer costume, keep in mind that she's just an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent.

And [[HotBlooded true to them]], his Gunpla modification is more crazy than Haru and Shingo. His vanilla Beginning Gundam is armed with a giant RocketPunch. When he upgraded it to Beginning J, he replace the beam sabers with {{BFS}} taken from [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny Sword Impulse]] and later, turned it into a centaur-like MS using MechanicalHorse from Anime/MobileFighterGGundam, with BadassCape taken from Master Gundam. * [[IWasQuiteALooker He Was Quite a Looker]]: In ''Gunpla Builder D'', when Shingo found old photo of Mishima siblings, he has no idea who they are (only Daiyu play this trope, young Saki simply wasn't dye her hair nor wearing costume yet).

Interesting enough, his main tactic is "using MacrossMissileMassacre to lure enemy up close, then finish them with melee attack" which also used by another character with SplitPersonality in Anime/AfterWarGundamX.

* EpicFail: One of the reasons why Koji Matsumoto's Hi-ν Gundam loses to the Beginning Gundam is because the Manager's clumsiness caused the Hi-ν's left hip polycap to break ''in the middle of the battle.'' The fact that the Hi-ν was already stuck in a tarp didn't help either.
