** Tomino's main complain however, is that the factory being hypocritical themselves, selling 'incomplete' product as cutting cost measure for mass production. FridgeBrilliance?

* MorphicResonance: RealLife voice actors Creator/ToruFuruya and Rumiko Ukai are drawn ''a lot like'' Amuro Rei and Fraw Bow (respectively)[[note]]In RealLife, Furuya looks a ''lot'' like Amuro, albeit this could be as a side-effect of EnforcedMethodActing he has to do along the years[[/note]]. Creator/ShuichiIkeda is much less blatant about this, but you can still see a faint resemblance to Char. For some reason, there also is a Gihren Zabi {{Expy}} as a Bandai rep.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Used in-universe by Tomino to gather more interest in Gundam.
** This is a ShoutOut to the legendary "Tomino Memo", detailing the original 52-episode plan for ''Gundam''; many of the ideas explored in it would turn up in later spin-offs, particularly most of the mobile suits showing up in the rejected sequel pitch ''MS-X''.

* HotBlooded: Tomino pretty much embodies this. More than a few times he seems to be channeling the soul of [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]], 40 years earlier. Pretty much any other named character gets at least one HB moment, to boot (even Momoe, who throws Tomino down a flight of stairs at one point), but Tomino outnumbers and outshines them all.

* CharacterExaggeration: ''Rampant''. Creator/ShuichiIkeda is a total drunk most of the time [[spoiler:(but sobers up upon seeing the role of Char)]] , Tomino is a total badass, and Momoe Kusakari (the aformentioned program director) is highly naive. Given that Owada is the creator of TheLegendOfKoizumi, this should not come as a surprise.

* KillEmAll: Sort of. Kusakari, after hearing about [[spoiler:the plotline, the cancellation of, and sponsor deception surrounding ''SpaceRunawayIdeon'']], aptly calls Tomino "Tomino the killer"[[note]]Referring of course to how two Tomino shows have essentially been canceled due to poor reception, not to Tomino's legendary FanNickname.[[/note]].

* ExecutiveMeddling: Shichiro Kuroba, head of Clover (the toymaker that sponsored ''Gundam''), is a subversion of this. He initially comes off as a {{Jerkass}} for wanting the mecha to be more {{Toyetic}} than realistic (specifically, the case for the RX-78-2's "parade" color scheme). However, his reason for doing so is the fact that in order to be able to fund the series, they ''must'' be able to sell toys, which means he can't give Tomino and his team the freedom he would like to.

* PrimaDonnaDirector: As you may have gathered by now, Creator/YoshiyukiTomino is an InUniverse example. He has a very firm idea of what kind of series he wants to make, and tries to defend said series with as much [[LargeHam ham]] as possible.



* TroubledProduction: Practically the whole point of this manga is to show just how troubled it was.
