** In ''Clockwork Prisoner'', just after the XO made an argument about whether robots can have feelings that takes the opposite stance as another well known spaceship XO, we get a close-up of the robot crawling with its red activity light oscillating from left to right and back like [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 a Cylon's]].

* MagicFromTechnology: When dealing with Iscandarian technology, the commonly-accepted laws of physics pretty much go out the window. Sanada even quotes ArthurCClarke on the matter.

** At one point, Yuki asked Kodai if he thought she could ever pilot a fighter like Akira, an idea he quickly shot down. In the 2010 movie, not only is she a fighter pilot, she's a ''squad leader''.

* [[KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter Kinetic Weapons Have Their Place]]: The Yamato's Type-3 ordnance are heavy battleship artillery shells. They're not as powerful as Shock Cannons and are thus used rarely, but every time to devastating effect: first to destroy attacking ships on the Jovian Floating Continent (while the Wave Motion Engine was shut down for repairs), then to bomb Shultz's Pluto base to ashes from half a dwarf planet away, and finally to [[spoiler:blast Dessler's giant ship to little pieces in a subspace corridor where normal beam weapons didn't work. While Dessler was [[SuckingInLines warming up]] his {{BFG}}, the Yamato opened up with the Type-3's and tore his ship to shreds]]. Needless to say the guy was ''outraged'' at such "barbaric" weapons.

** Played straight in VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV, where the Type-3 Shells actually have more range and firepower than the Shock Cannons.

* BerserkButton: Shima develops one about halfway through the series when Melda claims that humanity started the war with the Gamilas. Shima takes this as a firm insult to his father's honor [[spoiler: because his father was not only a firm believer in a friendly relationship between aliens and humans but was also the first human casualty in the war. His reaction to finding out the truth is truly [[TearJerker heartrending.]] ]]

** Field Marshall [[Creator/NorioWakamoto Herm Zoellik]] is another SmugSnake, who thought he could [[spoiler: [[OutGambitted outwit]] Dessler and assassinate him]], initiating a coup d'état.
*** The interaction between the two is notable, because Zoellik makes Goer look ''reasonable'': after he seizes control of the fleets and the Yamato shows up out of nowhere, Zoellik orders his ships into dangerous collision courses to destroy it. Goer (who had earlier shot a friendly ship himself) is ''appalled'' by this. Later, after [[spoiler: Dessler reveals himself to be alive]], Goer even shoots Zoellik [[KilledMidSentence mid-rant]], visibly disgusted at his treason.
** Serizawa, commander of the UN military. By his orders, [[spoiler: Earth attacked the Gamilans without provocation at first contact]], and his underlings on the ''Yamato'' try a mutiny because he doesn't believe in their possible success.

In truth, [[spoiler: the Automated Navigation chamber contained a cryo-pod with the comatose Yurisha, Queen Starsha's sister, whose mind provided the Yamato's long-range guidance.

He died before the Yamato's arrival, and Starsha [[BrainUploading saved his consciousness]] in order to help power the Cosmo Reverser for the restoration of Earth]].
