* In recent years, the terms of said legal proceedings were partially unsealed as part of a legal case between Creator/TatsunokoProduction and Harmony Gold, and '''''Harmony Gold''''' was found to be partially or fully in breach of the terms of their original contract, and were forced to relinquish all rights by 2021 as part of a new settlement. AndTheFandomRejoiced.
** This has also affected a follow-up case, where Harmony Gold were finally taken to court over the terms of the original FASA settlement, due to the fact Harmony Gold were found to have never owned The Unseen in the first place, because they were never covered as part of the original arrangement!

* Main/SixtyFiveEpisodeCartoon: At 85 episodes (36 from ''Macross'', 23 from ''Southern Cross'', 25 from ''Mospeada'', plus an extra clip episode cobbled together to help bridge the narrative gap between the first two sagas) ''Robotech'' well exceeds this trope. (Otherwise, it would have stopped five episodes into ''The New Generation''!) But of course the reason ''Robotech'' exists in the format that it does is because the producers had this trope in mind.

* Harmony Gold can continue to release the original ''Robotech'' stories, and can also release the original ''Macross'' in the US, but cannot create derivative works based on it for film or TV. However, they can still create merchandise featuring the characters, including books and comic books.

A couple of licensed VideoGames were also created around the TurnOfTheMillennium: ''Videogame/RobotechBattlecry'' and ''Robotech: Invasion''.



The film rights were originally purchased by Creator/WarnerBros, but now Creator/SonyPictures have acquired the rights and plan to quickly move forward with a Robotech franchise, and have announced that the first film will be directed by James Wan.

* HitAndRunTactics: Partially {{averted}} in Palladium Books' {{Anime/Robotech}} {{Tabletop RPG}} 'verse. A machine gun has to do 100 HP of damage (in a single burst, which is all but impossible) to a HumongousMecha before it counts, so people with ordinary weapons can't use this strategy against heavy armor. However, you can use this strategy with land mines vs HumongousMecha or HumongousMecha vs naval or space craft.

* AdaptationExpansion: The novel adaptation by Jack Mckinney has quite a bit, including a prolouge featuring an attack on a Robotech Master outpost by the Invid, and explaining that the Super Dimension Fortress derives its name from the fact that [[YearInsideHourOutside time inside moves 1/24th the speed of time outside]].

It also gives Veritech fighters an UnusualUserInterface of a psionic pickup in the helmet, requiring Battloid mode to be partially commanded by thought.

*** Doubles as a NiceJobBreakingItHerod moment. The only reason the barrier overloaded is because Khyron ignored communications saying that the barrier was building up to critical mass due to the sheer amount of firepower being thrown at it all at once. He wanted the glory of capturing the SDF-1 for the Zentraedi Armada.
