A 2002 anime series produced by Sunrise Studio, created by the legendary Director YoshiyukiTomino of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' and with mecha designs by Akira Yasuda, better known as legendary {{Capcom}} illustrator Akiman. The characters were designed by [[Anime/EurekaSeven Kenichi Yoshida]] and the head writer was [[CodeGeass Ichiro Okouchi]]. This series can be considered [[SpiritualSuccessor a return to]] the directorial approach seen in 1982 ''Anime/{{Xabungle}}'', where comedy is much more emphasized than his normal dramas ('''Translation:''' Don't worry, Tomino doesn't kill everyone...or anyone, for that matter.)

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Asuham and Jaboli have their moments.
** Subverted in how completely and utterly useless and incompetent they usually are despite this, Jaboli even moreso than Asuham.

* AscendedFanboy: Subverted by Gainer who wants nothing to do with fighting Giant Robots in real life, and Cynthia, who can't seem to tell the difference between games and reality for most of the series. [[spoiler: When she ''does'' learn the difference, it hits her ''hard'']].

*** [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ They did.]]



* ForgotAboutTheMindReader: Kashmir's Overman Planeta's Overskill. Gainer makes it backfire by simply ''telling'' him about what's on his mind most of all... [[LoveInterest Sara]]. [[HilarityEnsues The entire Exodus just so happens to hear it.]]\\
\\
This gets played for greater laughs in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ'', where Gainer is joined by [[spoiler: [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Shinn Asuka]] (declaring his desire to protect peace and NOT his love of Lunamaria, [[EpicFail to the latter's disappointment]]), [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Garrod Ran]] (declaring his love for Tiffa), [[Anime/SuperDimensionCenturyOrguss Kei Katsuragi]] ([[LoveableSexManiac declaring his love for ALL the female characters up to that point]]), [[Anime/{{Xabungle}} Jiron Amos]] (declaring his love for...[[CompletelyMissingThePoint his favorite food, lizard stew]]), and the chosen protagonist (either Rand or Setsuko).]] And it works!
