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.

*** In the novels, this is even worse. The citizens of Macross Island survived because they had already evacuated to the bunkers, which were sealed. The Daedalus and Prometheus were regular supercarriers only intended for sea combat. When Gloval orders them to be pulled in and connected to the SDF-1, part of those orders are to collect the bodies of the crews for burial, catalogue their supplies, and retrofit them for use in space.
