* BitterWeddingSpeech: Averted Subverted by Captain Global.Global. At Max and Milia's wedding he starts talking about how it's hard for humanity to forgive the Zentradi for all the people they've killed, and everyone is afraid of the seemingly hateful direction his speech is going in, but he quickly makes it clear that humanity must disregard any hard feelings in favor of the hope for coexistence represented by Max and Milia's love.

* FourStarBadass: Breetai

to:

* FourStarBadass: BreetaiBreetai is an imperious commander Zentradi fleet, and proves formidable in hand-to-hand combat against humans piloting Valkyries.
* FourthDateMarriage: In episode 25, Max Jenius falls for Milia [[LoveAtFirstSight at first sight]] when he meets her in an arcade and beats her in a Valkyrie simulation game. He gets her to agree to meet him in a park later, not realizing she's a Zentradi pilot who holds a grudge against him for beating her in two dogfights. She challenges him to a KnifeFight, which he wins, and then--undeterred by the fact that she's an alien enemy who just tried to kill him--he succeeds right then and there in making her fall head over heels for him! Max goes to Hikaru for advice and tells him they've already decided to get married, and when Hikaru tells him that he can't marry someone he just met--especially since she's a Zentradi whose species' psychology and way of life are totally different from humans--Max insists that love will overcome their differences. Captain Global sponsors a lavish and highly publicized wedding for them because he sees it as a good opportunity to promote the idea that humans and Zentradi can coexist peacefully.



* GeneralRipper: the whole damn security council! First, they blindly refuse to accept accurate reports at how overwhelmingly powerful the Zentradi are, and then the Generals actually delude themselves to think they can intimidate that alien threat with their Grand Cannon.

* RecapEpisode: ''Macross'' has two episodes which are constructed largely from clips of earlier episodes. The first is a basic, narrated clip show, but the second is a brilliantly-edited dream sequence in which events are replayed with different dialogue that radically changes their interpretation and reveals subtexts. This was necessary because ''Macross'' proved popular enough early on that the series received an order for additional episodes. The production staff had to figure out how to fill the space, because they didn't have quite enough story material for enough additional episodes.



* RetCon: Most of the character and mecha redesigns from ''Do You Remember Love?'' were eventually incorporated into the main continuity, replacing the original designs.

* RetCon: Most of the character and mecha redesigns from ''Do You Remember Love?'' were eventually incorporated into the main continuity, replacing the original designs. This was later explained in-universe by ''Do You Remember Love?'' having been made as a docudrama by producers who didn't pay much attention to historical accuracy and shot it with later models of hardware and uniforms.

This caused them to question to problem of first contact with Earth, until an [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom automated defense program]] on the Macross fired upon them.
