** HypocrisyNod: He hasn't actually forgotten his own actions, often using it as a means to tell off Kamille for being just as hypocritical at times.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Perhaps the single greatest example of this trope in history. He chooses Bask for his [[TheDragon Dragon]], Jerid for his disciple, and allows Scirocco to acquire considerable power under him. All three of these men couldn't care less about his plans - Bask just uses Jamitov as a way to kill more Spacenoids, Jerid plans to eventually supplant Jamitov, and Scirocco plans to supplant Jamitov without the 'eventually'. For the icing on the cake, he repeatedly attempts to court favor with Haman Kahn, though she tries to kill him in ''every single meeting they have''.

* JapanesePronouns: Interesting case. When we first see him with Fraw and the kids, he's apparently still using the same ''boku'' from [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam when he was 16]]. As soon as he goes back to the warpath, though -- with the exception of Mirai and ''her'' kids, and with Beltochika -- it's ''ore,'' straight through. TruthInTelevision, since Amuro's now older ''and'' harder, DarkerAndEdgier, but it really shows how he's changed.

* {{Foil}}: Fraw Bow, especially considering how they're shown in sequential episodes. They're both orphans from the One Year War with intense interest in Amuro, but Fraw's wise, modest, motherly, helpful, stays off the battlefield, appeals to Amuro's better side, and despite her deep devotion to him, has other, major things in her life (she's also married, making her technically unavailable). Bel's childish, self-absorbed, sexually aggressive, baffled by Amuro's brooding and violent tendencies, jumps in fights and not only throws herself at Amuro but literally attaches to him for much of her screentime. They're contrasted in every possible way, and it'd be a MadonnaWhoreComplex if not for some more skillful characterization.

In the following episode, he calls her "Fraw Bow" again, like he did for ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' -- a sign that things are more the way they used to be, or that he [[ChildhoodFriend really just can't see]] her as anyone else.
