* VideoGame/GundamVsSeries: ''Gundam Extreme Vs.'' adds Crossbone to the mix, with Kincade's X-1 Kai (with Tobia's Pez Batara as an AssistCharacter), Zabine's X-2 Kai, and Tobia's Full Cloth (Giri's Vigna Ghina II as a FinishingMove) as playables. The Jovian moon Io is ''CB''[='s=] stage, and the Batara and Divinidad are enemy-exclusive machines in the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 release (and in ''Full Boost'', the X-2 Kai gets a Batara kamikaze attack as its FinishingMove). ''Full Boost'' added Tobia's X-3 as well.

* DemotedToExtra: For a ''looooong'' time, ''Crossbone'' was severely shafted in appearances in mecha games; SRW had only featured it once in Alpha 2 and it has only just begun to make an appearance in the VideoGame/GundamVsSeries and AnotherCenturysEpisode.

* {{Lolicon}}: The Crossbone Vanguard pirates suspect that Harrison is one, given how smitten he becomes with Twink.
** There are hints of this in ''Ghost'' with Font and Belle. Belle is too young to have romantic feelings for anyone, while Font seems to be a little ''too'' strenuously denying having any attraction to her.
** In the original manga, Tobia asks Kincade if he's one after seeing the latter treat Bernadette like a [[{{Irony}} princess]].

* {{Irony}}: ''Crossbone'' was written between 1994 and 1997, during the period where YoshiyukiTomino was said to be the most frustrated and burnt out on ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' thanks to all the ExecutiveMeddling that influenced ''[[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]]''. However, it manages to avert his usual KillEmAll tendencies and maintain a fair level of humor, being possibly his most upbeat ''Gundam'' series until ''[[Anime/TurnAGundam Turn A]]'' came along two years later.

* ''Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam Dust'': Set in a previously undepicted timeframe of UC 0168 even further into the Universal Century timeline than ''[[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam's]]'' UC 0153 setting. It follows three characters, the "Undying Ember" Ash King, the head of a freight company, "Moonlight Crane" Kaguya Shiratori, a mercenary, and the "Iron Peasant" Taganas Tayaka, a minor warlord commanding an agricultural mini-empire, as the chaos of the Federation's slow collapse has lead to a decline in technology and dozens of minor conflicts and wars as everyone fights everyone else for supremacy over the now independent space colonies.

* ''Mobile Suit Cross Bone Gundam: Skullheart'': Released from 2002 to 2004, this series consists primarily of short vignettes detailing the adventures of the Crossbone Vanguard through the three years after the end of the original manga, with a few trips into the past to see BadassGrandpa Umon when he was a rookie in the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam One-Year War]], and to explain how narrator Twink met the crew.
* ''Mobile Suit Cross Bone Gundam: Steel 7'': Released in 2006 and 2007, ''Steel 7'' is a direct sequel to ''Cross Bone'' taking place three years later. Bernadette's step-mother Europa flees to Earth to warn the Vanguard that the Jupiter Empire is building "Zeus's Wrath", a giant [[WaveMotionGun colony laser]], in a second attempt to destroy Earth. Tobia must race against time and agents of the Empire to recover a means with which to get to Jupiter, and to recruit the best pilots he can muster for what seems to be a suicide mission. This manga ties even more heavily into ''[[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]]'' than the original ''Cross Bone'', serving to explain where the V2 Gundam's "Wings of Light" came from.
* ''Mobile Suit Cross Bone Gundam: Ghost'': Released from 2011 to 2016, ''Ghost'' is another sequel, set seventeen years after ''Steel 7'', which is around the same timeframe as ''Victory Gundam'' (U.C. 0153). Our new protagonist is a young Gundam enthusiast named Font Baud, who accidentally stumbles on Zanscare's plans for the Angel Halo while on the Internet. As Zanscare hunts him down, he is rescued by the forces of Serpiente Tacon (who later take the name Crossbone Vanguard once again), a Jovian special forces group lead by Curtis Rothko (aka [[spoiler:Tobia Arronax]]) and a girl named Belle. They are trying to retrieve "Angel's Call", an artifact which could make the Angel Halo far more horrific a weapon than anyone ever imagined...

* BadAss: Kincade. It probably helps that he [[TookALevelInBadass took even more levels]] in the ten years since ''F91''.
