* BrokenPedestal: To a point.

He even lampshades this trope. George does eventually convince Kisato to give him a fair chance.]]

[[spoiler:When George Glenn is revived via hologram, the crew (especially fangirl Kisato) is surprised to find that rather than the larger-than-life [[OurFounder figure]] Coordinators made him out to be, he's actually pretty light-hearted and jovial. This is equally surprising to the readers, since all that had previously been seen of him was in formal occasions, and the prepared speech he gave while leaving for Jupiter that revealed the existence of Coordinators. He even lampshades this trope. George does eventually convince Kisato to give him a fair chance.]]



* SupportingProtagonist: Jess Rabble. He barely does anything of any importance throughout the whole of Destiny Astray and is one of the most boring people on the screen, yet is supposed to be [[InformedAbility special due to his quest for the truth.]]

* SupportingProtagonist: Jess Rabble. He barely does anything of any importance throughout the whole of Destiny Astray (aside from serving as a spotter for Kaite Madigan in a battle where all sensors other than the human eye have been rendered useless; [[ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman good thing the Out Frame has a secondary observer's cockpit in the head with an actual window instead of cameras]]) and is one of the most boring people on the screen, yet is supposed to be [[InformedAbility special due to his quest for the truth.]]

''GundamSEEDAstray R'' is the sister series to Astray by a different author, and more or less runs concurrently with the original. Both comics reference each other regularly. A photonovel, ''Astray B'', was also written. Astray R focuses specifically on Lowe's adventures, while Astray B focuses on Gai; the letters refer to their respective Astray Gundams, Red Frame and Blue Frame.

Another similar series, ''Gundam [=SEED=] X Astray'', takes place roughly during a short TimeSkip in episode 47 of GundamSEED, and features Canard Pars, a "failed" experiment [[spoiler: in the same "Ultimate Coordinator" program that spawned [=SEED=] protagonist Kira Yamato]]. He wishes to prove that he's not a failure by defeating Kira and the Strike Gundam, but first runs into our Junk Guild and Serpent Tail heroes, and promptly attacks them, seeing as they have Gundams in their possession. During this, both teams come across Prayer Revierie, a young boy with a Mobile Suit that contains both a nuclear reactor, and a device known as a Neutron Jammer Canceller, which would allow said reactor to work. When Canard finds out about Prayer's N-Jammer Canceller, he naturally wants it to give his Hyperion Gundam the power to face Kira head on (as by this point Kira has upgraded to the nuclear-powered Freedom Gundam).

* AwesomeYetPractical: Red Frame Kai's Tactical Arms IIL can change into "Work Mode", a giant claw which Lowe uses for salvage work. The weapon mounts a beam torch gun which Red Frame hand-wields during Work Mode.

* InsistentTerminology: In ''Destiny Astray R'', Lowe invents the Caletvwlch, which he insists is a multi-purpose cutting and welding tool and '''not''' a weapon...despite the fact that it takes the form of a sword and is named after a legendary sword. When asked, he explains that there are limiters in place to keep it from being used as a weapon; if someone disables those limiters, they're taking responsibility for its use after that point. Note that he does this because the Junk Guild has very strict rules against the creation and sale of weapons.

* BrickJoke: In the animated Red Frame short, Lowe purchases a salvaged [=BuCUE=] head but has to leave it behind when ZAFT attacks, and the short ends with Lowe lamenting that he has to abandon such an expensive treasure. Nine real-world years later in ''Destiny Astray R'', Lowe finds the head again and is so happy that he cries ManlyTears, but ends up having to win it off of a bandit leader who's claimed it as his good luck charm.

A series of manga that mostly take place just behind, and a little to the left, of ''MobileSuitGundamSEED''.

* LighterAndSofter: At least the stories revolving on Lowe's team, and comparing it to the [[MobileSuitGundamSEED main series]]. There are still the sad fatalities of war, but the major lowering of the kill-rate (particularly thanks to Lowe and Co.'s aversion to killing) along with Lowe and his group's hijinks and eccentricities keep their stories from brooding so much. Some of the mangas even have comic strips at the end of each issue focusing and exaggerating on these lighter aspects of the stories. Gai and his group practically carry the major bulk of the seriousness of the conflicts.

* VoodooShark: Kira's survival of the Aegis' self-destruction is explained as Lowe finding Kira and getting him medical aid. However, it doesn't explain the fact that Kira is alive at all, considering the Strike's cockpit was scorched and damaged so badly Lowe was able to force it open by hand.
