* FrothyMugsOfWater: Rico, Bron, Konda, and the "punch" at the SDF-1 landing celebration. Surprisingly this, trope is often averted in the series.

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Humanity repairing the SDF-1 restored the ship's main cannon and targeting system. This allowed the automated boobytrap to fire upon the Zentraedi when they arrived. Earth firing the first shot and demonstrating possession of Protoculture technology, led the Zentradi to abandon non-violent first contact.

* CoversAlwaysLie: The Parkfield Playtime release of ''Codename: Robotech'' in the UK. As well as the terrible day-glo cover art which doesn't match the original art style at all and is obviously meant to scream [[AnimationAgeGhetto "we are marketing this for kids"]], but the character on the front doesn't even appear in the feature (outside of the title sequence, briefly): it's the adult Dana Sterling from ''The Masters'' segment [[note]]a.k.a. Jeanne Franciax from ''Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross''[[/note]], when the feature covers ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross The Macross Saga]]'' only and doesn't even get to the point where baby Dana is born! Mercilessly parodied in [[http://www.anime-games.co.uk/VHS/anime/codename-robotech.php this online review.]]

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The Robotech Masters may not have a full grasp of the situation, but they clearly know what they're doing. Best shown by the rescue attempt of their downed flagship, taken down by Dana due a weakness of their ReactionlessDrive: while they could have called for a rescue attempt immediately they waited for the problem to be tracked down and fixed on ''all'' their motherships, and when the rescuing mothership was hit in a weak spot it just shrugged it off.

* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: A classic example with the Zentraedi, controlled by the Robotech Masters, who were afraid of the Invid, who were TERRIFIED of the Children of Shadows.

* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: A classic example with {{Subverted}}: the Zentraedi, controlled Zentraedi (who appear first) are actually the ''strongest'' faction thanks to sheer numbers; they're followed by the Robotech Masters, who were afraid of have more advanced technology than their old SlaveMooks Zentraedi but just don't have the numbers to compete; following them are the Invid, who were TERRIFIED of the Masters originally considered an ''annoyance'' until losses against the Southern Cross depleted their own numbers, implying that the only reason the Invid conquered Earth was that the Masters and the Southern Cross effectively destroyed each other. Then possibly played straight with the Children of Shadows.Shadows, who may be far more dangerous than the Invid even after they build up their forces on Earth.

* ReactionlessDrive: The Tirolian Motherships have it. This actually backfires on them once, as improper protection allows Dana to down the Robotech Masters' ''flagship'' with a single shot from her Spartas, but, knowing well their technology and not being stupid, the Masters track down the flaw and fix in time for their flagship to be rescued (indeed, in the rescue attempt Dana shoots the rescuing mothership in another weak spot expecting to shoot that one down too, but it does nothing).

* PragmaticVillain: The Invid Regess. She lets the Humans on Earth do as they please as long as they don't attack her children, and during the invasion she let the Southern Cross survivors leave. Why? Because she doesn't care in the slightest of what the Humans do as long as they don't oppose the Invid.

She lets the Humans on Earth do as they please as long as they don't attack her children, and during the invasion she let the Southern Cross survivors leave. leave (while keeping pressure on them to make sure they don't get any funny idea), and she even ''tolerates the presence of a few REF strongholds on Earth'' (Jonathan Wolfe's city and resistance base and Point K's army of ten thousand [=VFs=]) as long as they don't act out (Wolfe was luring soldiers into Invid hands to keep his city safe, and after he turns them we see an Invid army approach his city. Why? Because she doesn't care in the slightest of what the Humans do as long as they don't oppose the Invid.Invid or pose a danger. But if they do... Well, the first (and only) we see of Point K is ''its ruins from the Invid reaction to them starting to pose a danger''.
