Despite this reputation, Tomino has a habit of following a tragic series with [[LighterAndSofter a comedic one]], following ''Anime/{{Zambot 3}}'' with ''Anime/{{Daitarn 3}}'', ''[[Anime/SpaceRunawayIdeon Ideon]]'' with ''Anime/{{Xabungle}}'', ''Anime/AuraBattlerDunbine'' with ''Anime/HeavyMetalLGaim,'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'' with ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ ZZ Gundam]]'' to name a few. He's also been shown to have PapaBear traits, as seen when he delivered an epic ReasonYouSuckSpeech to a group of people who disparaged [[Creator/RomiPark Romi Paku]] [[NoKoreansInJapan for being Korean]].

He also helped write ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory'', though he didn't direct that one. Finally, Tomino appears as the main character in ''GundamSousei'', a heavily fictionalised account of the production of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam''.

However, Tomino is also known as "KillEmAll Tomino" for a number of series where much of the main cast gets killed during the GrandFinale. Among these series were ''Anime/{{Zambot 3}}'', Anime/SpaceRunawayIdeon (where ''his two expies'' get killed off), [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]], [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]], CharsCounterattack, and Anime/AuraBattlerDunbine. Ideon probably holds one of the highest body counts in anime, and in fact can be considered as a spiritual prequel to Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion in both the themes the series deal with, and also in the structure of its presentation (one TV series, and two movies). Further adding to his KillEmAll reputation are instances wherein characters were introduced merely to kill them off piecemeal within a few episodes, probably to provide instances of angst for the main character. The instances where this [[TrueArtIsAngsty works]], and when it [[{{Wangst}} doesn't]] is best left to the judgment of individual viewers.
