Although it only had a few episodes, the series was popular in the abridging community, and the announcer had even became a shared running gag. It was also notable for its extensive use of background music. It was confirmed as officially canceled in a video posted by IDLIT, although the video was taken down very soon after it was aired. It was declared dead in MSG Abridged Episode 15, when Cheesemanjoe, G Gundam Abridged's creator, guest starred. It couldn't have asked for a more fitting send off. -sniff-

This show provides examples of:
* BrownNote : Schwartz Brude...
* {{Fetish}}: Possibly. Domon ''really'' seems to like it when his suit is put on.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Domon refuses to see that the Rose Gundam pilot is a guy.
* IncrediblyLamePun: "Sir, the Shining Gundam is... shining."
* NoodleIncident: Apparently the reason Domon left Neo Japan and is afraid/abusive of Rain was because [[spoiler: she made an advance on him as a child.]]
** There's also the reason Domon hates baguette...
* OnlySixFaces: "Damn it! They both look ''identical''! Stupid cheap animators!"
* RunningGag (The Announcer)
** Also the sounds of Domon snapping his fingers when he says, "Rise Shining Gundam", in episode 5, he snapped his fingers and the sound accompanied with it was Goku from Dragonball, saying, "Taiyo-ken!!"
* SelectiveObliviousness: Nothing can convince Domon that George is a man. ''Nothing''.
* ShoutOut: To WebVideo/BerserkAbridged, BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad, Naruto, Medabots, Dragonball Z, and World of Warcraft.

Created several years ago, Gundam Wing Abridged follows the misadventures of the Gundam pilots as they deal with HoYay, AlternateCharacterInterpretation, and LampshadeHanging galore. Has its own website now (which is nice, since Website/YouTube suspended his account for copyvio) and and over twenty episodes, and making it one of the LongRunners of the abridged arena.
----
This show provides examples of:
* AbhorrentAdmirerer: Quatre for Trowa and Tubarov for Lady Une.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Oh so much.
* BrickJoke: "That't the biggest cannon I've ever seen!"
* CaptainObvious: "That's ''Sergeant'' Obvous, Sir."
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment
* EmoTeen: Trowa nonstop. Wu Fei has shades of this.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Zechs is the target of this from Otto and other random Mooks.
* FailOSuckyname: Zech's real name gets laughed at.
* MoreDakka: In universe example: Alex and Mueller reveal to Zechs that they plan on taking over the series, kill off every character but them selves and Wu Fei, and add in more rediculously powered Gundums... with more lasers.
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: An odd case. Heero, Wu Fei and Lady Une all have British accents, but most of the other characters don't. Speaking of American accent's this sometimes crosses over into
* OohMeAccentsSlipping
* OneSteveLimit: Hilariously subverted. Treize calls EVERYONE Zechs.
* PsychicLink: Subverted. Lady Une thinks she has one of these with Treize for a bit and that he's using it to tell her to free the Gundam pilots because Romafeller bites now. It turns out it was just her imagination, but it tells her to go through with it anyway because "I'm Treeeeiiiiize Khusrenaaaaaadaaaaaa." (Except he's not.)
* RunningGag (or RunAwayGag 'Fire the Lasers!')
* StayInTheKitchen: Wu Fei, naturally.
* StalkerWithACrush: Relena for Heero and Noin for Milliardo/Zechs.
* TheCaligula: Duke Dermail, who hired a group of men to stand around in colorful coats just to agree with everything he says, thinks that any goldfish not actually made of gold should be ethnically cleansed and cannot seem to grasp that no, Treize is NOT in fact supportive of the Mibile Doll program, despite constantly being told so.
* TheStinger: Primarily during the earlier episodes, including the infamous [[MemeticMutation No machinegun for him]] line.
* TheStoner: Howard
* VocalEvolution: Most noticable with Treize who goes from having something more similar to his original voice to having a higher, slightly more TotallyRadical voice.

This is where it all started, the ambitious project of anime legend YoshiyukiTomino that [[FollowTheLeader spawned the "Real Robot" genre of mecha anime]] and a cultural cornerstone of Japan. Now condensed and parodied [[AffectionateParody lovingly by some American Gundam fans]] who use AlternateCharacterInterpretation on the shows memorable cast, potshots at the shows dated animation quality and outdated sci-fi gadgetry. to make a hilarious, and still rather faithful (for an abridged series) adaptation of the original series. Also notable for never (outside the first episode) never breaking the forth wall.

----
This show provides examples of:

* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: There's an alternate episode 14 which crosses over with TheMelancholyOfHaruhiSuzumiya. Specifically, the episode which includes the SOS brigade playing a video game with the computer club which is represented as a battle in the universe of MSG abridged.
* AxeCrazy: Amuro in later episodes, seems to think that senseless murder will solve all his problems.
** He seems to have grown out of it by episode 21 stating that "Senseless murder just doesn't do it for me anymore."
* BerserkButton: Amuro completely loses it when they run out of salt.
* BlackComedyRape: At the end of episode eight, when the ship [[MileHighClub was a mile high up]].
* BigBrotherWorship: Sayla seems to, considering that meeting Char (aka her brother Casval) in episode 15 causes her to start screaming "Nii-san" over and over until he yells at her to stop. Of course this is followed by Sayla shooting him for abandoning her. And then things are further complicated by the whole thing being a dream sequence.
* BigEater: Ryu who seems far more interested in food than just about anything else.
* ButtMonkey: Amuro's suffering is a consistent source of amusement.
* BrickJoke: Numerous.
* CampGay: Garma, and all his men, too.
* CanadaEh: The Mooks in episode 14, who embody various Canadian stereotypes.
* CaptainOblivious: Dozle remains oblivious to Garma's [[CampGay blatant homosexuality]] even after his death.
-->'''Dozle''': "Bu-but, I don't believe Garma was gay!"
* CargoCult: The infamous episode 15 features one surrounding a former zeon pilot turned dirt farmer. Their main focus appears to be how evil pants are and how they forbid Amuro to wear any while on their island. [[HypocriticalHumor Nevermind that many of them are wearing pants.]]
* ClingyJealousGirl: Fraw towards Amuro.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: White Bases's Captain Paolo, largely due to the morphine.
* ClusterFBomb: Bright delivers one in episode 14 when Mirai points out that if the Gundam's reactor detonates, it could take out White Base too.
* CoolShades: Char. Complete with The Who's ''Won't Be Fooled Again''.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sayla and Dren, with an emphasis on snarker for the former, and deadpan for the latter.
* DysfunctionJunction: There are no normal people on white base, and judging by the rest of the cast, anywhere else in the universe.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Ryu suggests eating Amuro with drawn butter in episode 19.
** In episode 20, he eats the cake that Frau had made for Amuro... which had a ''saw'' in it [[spoiler:to help him break out of jail]]. The only comment this elicited from Ryu was the cake had a 'funny aftertaste.'
* EpicRocking: Season 2's theme song, a cover of "Amuro Forever" which was the original's ending theme now performed by [[OneOfUs fellow Gundam fanboy]] Music/AndrewWK
* FanDisservice: Ryu's attempts at Fanservice
* FurAndLoathing
-->'''Degwin''': "Look, if I need advice on [[CruellaToAnimals how to turn a litter of kittens into a sweater]], then I'll come to you."
-->'''Kycilia''': "It was two litters, and it was a coat. And [[PrettyInMink you did think it looked rather cute on me]]."
-->'''Degwin''': "That it did, my Dear, that it did."
* GilliganCut: From episode 4:
-->'''Commander Wakkein''': "Those kids are too paranoid. Even the Red Comet wouldn't think to attack such a fortified position like Luna II."
-->*cut to Char*
-->'''Char''': "We're attacking the fortified position known as Luna II."
* GreekChorus: Slender, Denim and Gene would certainly fit the criteria for this trope, that is, if they could stay on topic. Instead they prefer to relay anecdotes to each other with little interest in what is happening in the series.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: Garma for all his CampGay antics is apparently still in love with Icelina who is female....[[LarynxDissonance probably]]
* HeroesPreferRedHeads: Amuro does at least. He admits to this in his tagged video.
* HeyItsThatVoice: 2Old4Toys guest starts in various episodes.
* IknowMortalKombat: Why Amuro can pilot the Gundam.
-->'''Amuro''': "It was the 400 hours I spent on ''SteelBattalion''."
* ImmuneToBullets: Char can't be hit because he's wearing pink.
-->'''Char''': "Allow me to reiterate my previous statement that your weapons are ineffective against me based on my pigmentation."
* InsistentTerminology:
-->'''Kycillia''': [[PunctuatedForEmphasis SUPER! MEGA! ROCKET! SLIDE!]]
* ItsXIHateX: Amuro does one of these towards Cozun, doubling as a ShoutOut to ''Film/TheDarkKnight''.
-->'''Amuro''': "You remind me of my father."
-->'''Cozun''': "Huh?"
-->'''Amuro''': "I hate my father!"
* {{Jerkass}}: Kai, and he knows it.
* KnightInSourArmor: Bright is genuinely a good guy who is trying his best to fight the war, however ever since episode 2 he is always angry and frustrated at his crew.
* LukeIAmYourFather: The DNA evidence gag hints that Bright could be Amuro's real dad.
** Which considering [[YoungerThanTheyLook Bright's age]], this can be completely thrown out.
* MeanBrit: Give Bright earl grey tea and he turns into one.
* MyBelovedSmother: Amuro's mom, referenced as a possible reason for his numerous issues.
* MostAnnoyingSound: In universe, Captain M'Quve's "Le ding" which is the sound he makes by flicking a wine glass with his fingers, annoys Ramba Rall's team to no end.
* MyNameIsNotDurwood: Ramba Rall, can't seem to remember the names of two of his soldiers.
* OnlySaneEmployee: Bright does ''not'' like having to manage a crew of angsty teenagers.
* PaperthinDisguise: Frau's "Polish Immigrant" disguise consists of her wearing a headscarf, shouting words like "Purogie", "Dingus" and "Sausage".
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: "I'll fork you good!" is Amuro's. It's not very witty, but then again, neither is he.
* PhraseCatcher: Kai is frequently told to shut up.
-->'''Everyone''': "SHUT UP KAI!"
-->'''Kai''': *sarcastically* "Shut up Kai!"
* LarynxDissonance: Jurpentine guest stars as Garma's fiance Icelina Ichenbach with one of the least feminine voices your likely to ever hear.
* ReallyDeadMontage: Several, for [[spoiler: Icelina, Garma and most tragically, Ryu]]
* RedShirt: "But I'm wearing blue!"
* RecycledInSpace: In the words of the Narrator
-->'''Narrator''': "THE TEXAS COLONY! Provides dirt, shotguns, the cowboys, and other USELESS materials for construction!"
-->'''Denim''': [[LampshadeHanging "So it`s just Texas, but in space?"]]
-->'''Narrator''': "No, it`s THE TEXAS COLONY!"
* RunningGag: Tons
** [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner D N A Evidence]].
** A few episodes would end with any character saying "Wait..." after coming to sudden realization.
** Anger Sayla and she'll shoot you in the crotch.
** Allusions to sexual intercourse, usually followed by another character commenting "That`s disgusting."
** White Base bridge crew frequently spilling food on their radar systems.
** Ramba Rall and his Zeon forces mispronouncing "Earth phenomena", such as lightning as "litning", desert as "deesart" and Gundam as "Goondam".
** Frau being associated with Poland and sausages.
** Certain crew members discussing the beating their mother gave them as children.
* {{Sampling}}: Part of the SpeedyTechnoRemake of the original show's theme.
* SeriousBusiness: Zeon Game Night, apparently for Ramba Rall and his crew.
** Strangely enough, what words are acceptable in Scrabble is a matter Bright is willing to torture over.
* ShoutOut: Many.
* SoundtrackDissonance: The most intense battles are coupled with unfitting, upbeat, music.
* SpoiledBrat: We're not quite sure about the details, but Zeon soldiers are most able to recognize who Sayla is by hearing her shout "you're worthless" or just hearing her angry voice.
* StalkerWithACrush: Fraw towards Amuro. Lampshaded by Sayla.
-->'''Sayla''': "I don't want to hear your creepy stalker stories."
* TalkLikeAPirate: Mirai, no matter how much she's asked to stop. She's just as confused about it as everyone else.
-->'''Mirai''': Sir, don't look at me like that. It's involuntary! Yar! I be cursed!
** She doesn't do it when the crew is on vacation, though. When it's clearly over, she starts up again, much to Sayla's relief.
** It might be the [[ToxicPhlebotinum Minovsky Particles]]. Since when are they harmless?
* TheAlcoholic: Dren.
* TheOtherDarrin: Ramba Rall, previously voiced by Unwardil, is replaced by Takahata101 for episode 20.
** Earlier, Revy_Moonshine took over JjKayBomb's roles as Matilda and Hamon due to the latter's declining mic quality.
* TheStoic: Also Dren, who's voice never wavers from its bored monotone, even in combat. Also functions as the DeadpanSnarker, with extra deadpan.
* TheStoner: Fraw, though she prefers the harder hallucinogenic drugs to stuff like pot.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Big & Little Jon, two Zeon pilots who get blown up/shot down every time they appear, usually due to [[TooDumbToLive Little Jon's incompetence.]]
* ThoseWackyNazis: The Zeon show shades of this, most notably during Garma's funeral.
** Similarily, the mother and child from episode 8 are turned into Nazis as well.
* WaxingLyrical: Often, though the most frequent offender is Icelina who often breaks into quotes from BonJovi.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Suprise, suprise, it's Amuro.
-->'''Amuro''': "LOVE ME! LOVE ME LIKE MY FATHER NEVER DID!"
* VocalEvolution: Most notable with Amuro who began with a fairly normal teenage male voice, but grew more whinier and higher pitched as the series progressed.
** It can be a little odd to listen to Bright prior to the ending of episode 2 which is when he adopts his trademark angry tone of voice that he carries for the rest of the series.
* YouAllLookFamiliar: Invoked when Amuro goes off to destroy a Zeon salt mine.
-->'''Zeon Soldier1''': "137 men dead sir. Twice as many men wounded sir."
-->'''Zeon Soldier2''': "Damnit! Why are those damn Feddies attacking a salt mine of all things?"
-->'''Zeon Soldier1''': "[[LampshadeHanging Do you think it has something to do with the fact that we all look alike?]]"
-->'''Zeon Soldier2''': "Undoubtedly!"

** It might be the [[ToxicPhlebotinum Minovsky Particles]]. Since when are they harmless?
* TheAlcoholic: Dren.
* TheOtherDarrin: Ramba Rall, previously voiced by Unwardil, is replaced by Takahata101 for episode 20.
** Earlier, Revy_Moonshine took over JjKayBomb's roles as Matilda and Hamon due to the latter's declining mic quality.
* TheStoic: Also Dren, who's voice never wavers from its bored monotone, even in combat. Also functions as the DeadpanSnarker, with extra deadpan.
* TheStoner: Fraw, though she prefers the harder hallucinogenic drugs to stuff like pot.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Big & Little Jon, two Zeon pilots who get blown up/shot down every time they appear, usually due to [[TooDumbToLive Little Jon's incompetence.]]
* ThoseWackyNazis: The Zeon show shades of this, most notably during Garma's funeral.
** Similarily, the mother and child from episode 8 are turned into Nazis as well.
* WaxingLyrical: Often, though the most frequent offender is Icelina who often breaks into quotes from BonJovi.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Suprise, suprise, it's Amuro.
-->'''Amuro''': "LOVE ME! LOVE ME LIKE MY FATHER NEVER DID!"
* VocalEvolution: Most notable with Amuro who began with a fairly normal teenage male voice, but grew more whinier and higher pitched as the series progressed.
** It can be a little odd to listen to Bright prior to the ending of episode 2 which is when he adopts his trademark angry tone of voice that he carries for the rest of the series.
* YouAllLookFamiliar: Invoked when Amuro goes off to destroy a Zeon salt mine.
-->'''Zeon Soldier1''': "137 men dead sir. Twice as many men wounded sir."
-->'''Zeon Soldier2''': "Damnit! Why are those damn Feddies attacking a salt mine of all things?"
-->'''Zeon Soldier1''': "[[LampshadeHanging Do you think it has something to do with the fact that we all look alike?]]"
-->'''Zeon Soldier2''': "Undoubtedly!"

Although it only had a few episodes, the series was popular in the abridging community, and the announcer had even became a shared running gag. It was also notable for its extensive use of background music. It was confirmed as officially canceled in a video posted by IDLIT, although the video was taken down very soon after it was aired. It was also been declared dead on MSG Abridged Episode 15, when Cheesemanjoe, G Gundam Abridged's creator, guest starred. It couldn't have asked for a more fitting send off. -sniff-

* CargoCult: The infamous episode 15 features one surrounding a former zeon pilot turned dirt farmer. Their main focus appears to be how evil pants are and how they forbid Amuro to wear any while on their island [[HypocriticalHumor nevermind that many of them are wearing pants.]]
