''Space Runaway Ideon'' (a.k.a. 伝説巨神イデオン, Densetsu Kyojin Ideon, lit. Legendary Giant God Ideon, also The Ideon) is a 1980 SuperRobotGenre, MechaShow anime. It was the project that YoshiyukiTomino worked on directly after ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam''. As with its sister series it had its run cut short, it was planned for 43 episodes but got pulled after 39. The last 4 episodes were made into the movie ''Be Invoked''. Due to its angsty and bizarre ending, it is often cited as close inspiration for ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' (Creator/HideakiAnno himself describes ''Evangelion'' as ''Ideon'' meets ''Manga/{{Devilman}}''). Heck, it's probably best known today as the absolute heavyweight champion of the KillEmAll trope.

YoshiyukiTomino apparently wants to make a remake of it. [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2011-03-18/shinbo-tomino-want-to-do-new-madoka-magica-ideon Complete with the death scenes.]]

* HappyEnding: Yes, everyone's dead, but ...there's an afterlife! And the children are singing! And dead lovers are re-united! And everyone finally learns to shed hatred and violence and exist together! It's actually very uplifting (the biggest clue of of all is in the triumphant closing music).

* WaveMotionGun: The Ideon Gun, despite also being known as the Wave Leader Gun, is actually an [[NonIndicaticeName aversion/subversion]] to the trope, as it doesn't fire the standard beam found within Wave Motion Guns. Rather, it fires '''miniature black holes'''.

* PapaWolf: The Ideon itself. NewPowersAsThePlotDemands are activated by children being in danger. Some of the DangerouslyGenreSavvy characters even try to deliberately utilize this.
