* AMechByAnyOtherName: The series' signature HumongousMecha, Mobile Suits.



* CharClone: With the exception of the {{OVA}}s, there's at least one in every series where the original Char doesn't appear... except ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'', where Char was originally ''intended'' to appear, but was scrapped when ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack'' was given the green light.

* CharClone: Being the TropeNamer and TropeMaker, of course.

Added DiffLines:

* FrozenFace: The mobile suit's of the various series, being mecha built for war they don't really have any use for an expressive face. That said, the shows usually manages to convey emotions through them regardless, either with varied camera angles or by applying TearsFromAStone or similar.

to:

* RingworldPlanet: Helped popularize the "[=O'Neill=] cylinder" design. Ring-world shaped colonies exists in ''Anime/GundamWing'' and in the in the case of Universal Century, in the beginning of ''Anime/GundamUnicorn''.


Added DiffLines:

** ''Reconguista in G'' is this to Turn-A due to the setting, the director, being set after the Universal Century, and the Gundams being non-standard in design (the Turn-A's V-fin serves as a mustache, those of the G-Self are swept forward).

Generally, Gundam works are WarIsHell stories, detailing humans who remained on Earth and those who moved out to [[SpaceStation space colonies]] orbiting the planet starting WorldWarWhatever over rights, resources, and other decidedly real world issues. At some point after the war's start, an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent ends up FallingIntoTheCockpit of the newest [[SuperPrototype Gundam]] when TheEmpire attacks their [[DoomedHometown hometown]]. The teenager soon proves themselves to be AcePilot, and has to help TheFederation defeat TheEmpire. Along the way, the teen suffers untold mental trauma, as friends, family members, and various other people they care about become casualties of the ongoing conflict. [[AMechByAnyOtherName Mobile Suits]] are thus portrayed as [[RealRobot mass-produced machines of war similar to planes or tanks]]. There's also generally a [[TheRival rival]] who wears a mask and pilots a [[RedOnesGoFaster red]] HumongousMecha. And the hero will receive a MidSeasonUpgrade.

* HeroesPreferSwords: Whilst their enemies often get more exotic melee weapons, the hero's suit ''will'' have a beam sabre or two. {{Averted | Trope}} again in ''Iron-Blooded Orphans'' where the main Gundam pilot prefers massive blunt weaponry over a blade.
