* AdaptationalVillainy: In the novels, where she is a DefectorFromDecadence wracked by guilt from the destruction her father causes in the Shamblo. [[spoiler: She is fatally injured by him in response, and then sends psychic messages to Banagher revealing the Shamblo's weak spots and allowing him to take the Shamblo down.]]
* AmbiguouslyBrown
** Unambiguously in the Novels, where she was depicted as a Muslim woman, though both this part of her background and her family's involvement with Islamic extremism were toned down in the anime [[TooSoon due to it being released around the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.]]

* AdaptationalVillainy: In Her portrayal in the anime is very different from the novels, where she is a DefectorFromDecadence wracked by guilt from the destruction her JerkAss father causes in the Shamblo. [[spoiler: She is fatally injured by him in response, and then sends psychic messages to Banagher revealing the Shamblo's weak spots and allowing him to take the Shamblo down.]]
* AmbiguouslyBrown
** Unambiguously
AmbiguouslyBrown: Intentionally so in the anime. It's much less ambiguous iin the Novels, where she was depicted as a Muslim woman, though both this part of her background and her family's involvement with Islamic extremism were toned down in the anime [[TooSoon due to it being released around the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.]]

Added DiffLines:

** May also be a reference to a type of lobotomy, given his origins (at least in the novel version).

* {{Badass}}: Even Bright Noa acknowledged that he's almost a mirror image of his late subordinate/friend, Amuro Ray. He also doesn't necessary need a Gundam to put the beatdown on your ass for what he believes is right. GoodOldFisticuffs work fine for him. [[Funny/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Just ask Zinnerman]].
** If you still have questions about how badass he is,[[spoiler: all he needed to do was wave his arm (or rather the Unicorn's) to disable an entire Federation battalion, [[TechnicalPacifist without firing a shot]] during the finale, thanks to his fully awakened psychic powers]].



* {{Badass}}: He racks up multiple kills with a freakin' [[BreakOutTheMuseumPiece Zaku I Sniper]].

* BlondGuysAreEvil: At least he became one from the final scenes of episode 6 up until his HeelFaceTurn midway into episode 7.

* BigBad: [[BigBadEnsemble One of two]], alongside Martha Vist Carbine.

* BigBad: [[BigBadEnsemble One of two]], alongside BigBadEnsemble: Alongside Martha Vist Carbine.



* BlondGuysAreEvil: [[spoiler:It's possible that his hair is dyed to look like Char so his blond hair may or may not be natural.]]



* BigBad: [[BigBadEnsemble The second candidate]], alongside Frontal. The two are parts of a dichotomy, with Martha's violent conservatism and desire to preserve the status quo by any means necessary being treated as far worse than Full Frontal's desire to use the Box to create change (albeit bad change).

* AceCustom: The [=RGM-96X=] Jesta, a special operations version of the Jegan.

* AceCustom: The [=RGM-96X=] Jesta, a special operations version of the Jegan. [[note]]On the other hand, other materials suggest that the Jesta line might be in fact stripped-down versions of the Unicorn Gundam, minus psycoframe, Gundam-specific weaponry and Newtype-specific technology, resulting in a powerful grunt-level suit nonetheless.[[/note]]

* WrongGenreSavvy: In all fairness, his plan to get all the colonies to co-operate in starving the Federation to death, while hardly guaranteed to work, is still a whole lot smarter and more efficient than anything the various Neo-Zeon movements have come up with before (or since if you take the ''F91'' spinoffs as canon). The ability to shut out one's oppressors through economic action, rather than begging for recognition they have no desire to give or clashing against them in bloody and wasteful wars of independence is the holy grail of many a resistance movement. Frontal is only wrong because he had the misfortune of being born into a universe where PsychicPowers exist that have the potential to render his plans and the cynical worldview that drives them obsolete.

[[spoiler:The fact that this state of affairs he imagines actually comes to pass come the far future of ''Anime/GundamReconguistaInG'' drives the bitter irony home.]]

* {{Irony}}: He hates Gundams as agents of uncontrolled and often destructive change, but eventually decides to pilot one himself because of its inarguable power. He also previously piloted two units that could be considered Gundams ([=ReZEL=] stands for Refined Zeta-Gundam Escort Leader and the Delta Plus is a modified Delta Gundam, which eventually became the Hyaku Shiki). In addition he also has the same reservations about Newtypes when it comes to humans being agents of change, but as Banagher points out, he himself is a Newtype.

* ThePresidentsDaughter: Audrey is important to both the Earth Federation and Zeon for her real identity as Mineva, and she is well-aware of that. It is even played straight when Banagher literally tells Audrey he doesn't want to know what she should do but what ''she wants''.
