In the year 2065, the world's two superpowers are fighting over the control of a SpaceElevator. Fighter pilot Kei Katsuragi and his friend Olson are assigned to just blow the damn thing up, providing escort for engineers using a new "dimensional" weapon of mass destruction - the [[NegativeSpaceWedgie Space/Time Oscillation Bomb]]. However, everything goes wrong when the engineers die before it can be set off. Kei is ordered to abandon and self-destruct the bomb, but instead chooses to start ''[[NiceJobBreakingItHero fiddling with it.]]''

Not as popular, but more imaginative, than its older brother, Orguss is the second show in the "Super Dimension" series, between ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' and ''Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross''.

A six-episode sequel OVA, ''Orguss 02'' done by Creator/JCStaff (of ''VisualNovel/{{Slayers}}'' fame), was released in 1993. The story is set in a completely different world; at first, the only ties to the original series are the Orguss and Nikick mecha buried around the world, along with the ruins of the orbital elevator where everything started. The kingdoms of Rivilia and Zafrin have both learned how to rebuild the ruined "[[AMechByAnyOtherName armors]]" (or "Decimators" in the English dub) using their {{World War II}}-level SchizoTech, and the cold war between them is on the verge of igniting. But more of the original story resurfaces as young Rivilian mechanic Lean is sucked into the conflict between the nations, and meets Nataruma, an [[PhlebotinumRebel escaped Zafrin agent]] with strange powers, a [[BrokenBird chip on her shoulder]], and an unusual heritage...

Orguss plays a big role in SuperRobotWarsZ. Specifically, the Space-Time Oscillation Bomb Kei blew up at the beginning of the series [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom was the catalyst for merging all the worlds and all the problems that came with it.]]

* GainaxEnding: The natural result of the setting. By the last story arc, everyone knows that the Mu robots are resisting any and all efforts to fix the world, believing that the artificial greenhouse effect will spare inorganic lifeforms. The Chilam still have some scheme to control Kei and Olson when they repair space-time, and it's heavily implied the Emaan have something up their sleeves too. Kei and Olson reach the Great Singularity Point just before it is about to be destroyed by a meteor... [[spoiler:only to find that the [=GSP=] is actually the Space/Time Oscillation Bomb ''trapped in the moments before its activation'' '''along with a pre-Orguss Kei and Olson.''' The older Kei and Olson realize the implications immediately and draw their weapons, resulting in their past selves drawing their own, followed by four gunshots. With everyone capable of activating it dead, the [[CuttingTheKnot bomb self-destructs]], ending an otherwise StableTimeLoop. Thus, every timeline began flowing separately, making [[TheMultiverse all possible endings true]].]]
