** The live action movie ups this to [[spoiler: KillEmAll territory. The landing party on Iskandar/Gamilas suffers a near TotalPartyKill with only Yuki and Kodai being the only ones to escape, and by the time the ''Yamato'' returns to Earth there are only 36 crew left alive (only twelve of which survive the final abandon ship) -- and that's before the Captain dies, Dessler makes his final attack and Kodai does a HeroicSacrifice.]]

** Consider Germany's post-WorldWarTwo transition...the HeelFaceTurn can be seen as [[RealLifeWritesThePlot a reflection of geopolitical reality]]; much like Japan at the time, Germany was transitioning culturally from the war.

* ShoutOut: Admiral Okita's response to the Gamilas request for his surrender is a direct nod to real life WorldWarTwo General Anthony "Nuts" McCaullife and his response to the Germans' request for his surrender.

* FridgeLogic: If Queen Starsha could send them the plans for the Wave-Motion Engine, why couldn't she have just sent them the plans for the Cosmo Cleaner D/Cosmo DNA instead? See SecretTestOfCharacter, below.

* TechnologyPorn: ''2199'', full stop, with the live-action movie as a distant runner-up. Original also kinda qualifies, but in a ''very'' stylized, Matsumoto-specific way, which doesn't look like this for many.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Done accidentally by the Yamato in ''2199'' when they test fire the WaveMotionGun on a Gamilon base situated on a floating continent. However, instead of destroying the base, the beam just straight up [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroys the entire continent]]. Oh, and did we mention that the continent was roughly '''the size of Australia'''?

many. The periodic sight of the wave motion engine reconfiguring its massive components to become the heart of the Wave Motion Gun, to the accompaniment of [[MostWonderfulSound ominous, escalating sound effects,]] certainly counts.

* DatedHistory: The entire premise of the show relies on the then current belief that the sunken Yamato was mostly intact under the sea, and could be refitted into the Space Battleship. Years later, advances in technology disproved it pretty badly: the ship split in half while sinking, and the wreckage is more or less torn to pieces. ''2199'' had to reinvent a more convoluted story of camouflage as a shipwreck during construction to keep the original idea of a spaceship Yamato.

** Gievn their planes, tactics, and attitude in the first season, Dessler is more like the Americans, making the FaceHeelTurn more obvious.

** Gievn their planes, tactics, and attitude in the first season, Dessler is more like the Americans, making the FaceHeelTurn more obvious. In the Episode 2 flashback that depicted the Allies sinking the Yamato in WWII, the American planes are given the Gamilus theme music when they fire upon the battleship.
