* CosmopolitanCouncil: Episode 2 has the multinational leadership of the United Nations briefing Captain Okida prior to the Yamato's launch; visible are the United States leader, the European Union's leader, as well as those for the Middle East and China, along with a UN Secretary General very clearly inspired by Ghanaian Koffi Annan.

* AlienInvasion: Not implicitly. While in the original the Gamilas were intent on turning Earth into their new homeworld, this time around it seems that Earth is being subjected to constant harrassment due to the fact that it ''resisted'' assimilation into the Gamilas empire. Some characters on the Gamilas side, like Schultz, comment on this, and say that Earth wouldn't be suffering as much had it just surrendered.

** The Dimensional Submarine takes the cake: Looks like a sub, acts like a sub, fights like a sub, and it even has a periscope.
** And then there's the courtesy of Gamillian fighter pilots to [[TwoDSpace nearly always attack the Yamato from the directions they could've attacked a seagoing ship from]], which is also the where all of Yamato's AAA guns are. Those few unsporting Gamillians (such as the aforementioned Dimensional Submarine) fared a lot better by attacking its PointDefenseless belly.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: More than one character, in fact.
** Gamilas general Erk Domel is one of the most competent military commanders in anime history. When he's inflicting a CurbStompBattle on the Comet Empire, he still warns his subordinates to never underestimate the enemy, just in case(anyone who saw the second season of the original series knows he's right). When he's sent to deal with the ''Yamato'', he considers the job just a brief distraction before he can return to the Lesser Magellanic Cloud and the ''Yamato'' nothing special, but just in case he uses one of the most devastating one-ship tactics of the franchise that do not involve a WaveMotionGun, and when the ''Yamato'' (barely) survives he decides to go all out. ''Keeping a few ships in reserve'', just in case they broke through his initial ambush (they did).
** Dessler, too. [[spoiler: What with the body double and then getting away to safety in the nick of time.]]

** Gamilas too is working on the very same weapon. In the meantime, many Gamilas ships have weapons that follow the same general idea (big gun with ludicrous firepower that does an helluva damage), but it's less powerful, and before the ''Yamato'' Earth ships are implied having used a predecessor of the shock cannon (the turreted weapons of the ''Yamato'') in a similar way.

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: "A Clockwork Prisoner" explores this at length: when a Garmillan android that had been captured by the ''Yamato'' crew begins to exhibit some sentience in its pursuit of the vessel's "goddess", Sanada and Itou debate about whether the android is a living being. Sanada states that there's little difference between the human brain and the android's artificial intelligence, and when Itou sarcastically asks Sanada if he thinks the android has a heart, Sanada straight-up questions if ''[[SmugSnake Itou]]'' has a heart.

Fast forward to April 2012. After years of legal dispute between the series' co-creators Nishizaki and Matsumoto, the series is given a new breath of life with a remake, the eponymous '''Space Battleship Yamato 2199'''. Featuring modern production standards and a vastly-enhanced budget, the new series seeks to retell the classic story for a brand new generation, at the same time giving even long-time fans and veterans of the franchise something to look forward to, as it's ''not'' quite the same story they grew up with.
