* WithThisHerring: The entirety of the Emperor's Rescue Mission. Because of the whole Float Temple SNAFU [[note]]Seals in the Tower of Demon, locking the [=SATANs=] out of Jocker, acting up, which has thrown the castle's power sources out of whack, Sarion and Green Left's uprising, most of the Mirages being out of town, their [=MHs=] in maintenance or rendered inoperable by the aforementioned power surges, etc.[[/note]] [[EnsignNewbie Mishalu]] [[YouAreInCommandNow Ha Lonn]] took off to Both with only one cruiser, her own half-assembled MH, and one (very inexperienced) combined arms division to take on the much, much heavier Di Barrow forces. Even when she was reinforced by an [[TheBattlestar assault carrier]] of the AKD's Both protectorate, and her MH was finally readied to battle, she still had just four [=MHs=] (three of them being of a RedShirt Temple model) against Di Barrow's nine, most of which were of much better Blue Armor type. It was so bad that they had to resort to the desperation tactic of using tanks against Mortar Headds at one point, which didn't turn into CurbStompBattle only because of an exceptional skill and, eventually, HeroicSacrifice of Col. Vasyuchenko, the AKD forces tank commander. Though they've managed to hold long enough for TheCavalry to arrive, [[BigDamnHeroes with Schaft and Aisha coming just in the nick of time]], and [[ButtMonkey Allen Braford]] deciding to desert Di Barrow and join the AKD's side after meeting with Sopp personally.

* TheStraightWillAndGrace: Subverted with Decors Weissmel and his Fatima Est. Est is programmed to pair with a knight best suited to pilot her bonded MH Vattshu, who just happens to be [[JerkWithTheHeartOfAJerk Weissmel]], instead of her [[DidNotGetTheGirl would-be boyfriend Jhon Weinzel]]. So she does spend most of her story together with him, but while it is common for a knight and his/her Fatima to have a relationship, in this case both sides are thoroughly indifferent to each other. There isn't even friendship, much less attraction: Est still loves Jhon, while Weissmel... well, he just isn't attracted to Fatimas at all. In fact, he consistently complains about Joker's fashion in Fatimas, who are commonly made small, skinny and somewhat {{Lolicon}}ish, [[EvenEvilHasStandards which he finds disgusting]].

''The Five Star Stories'' (FSS for short) is a long running (began serialization in the venerable ''Newtype Magazine'' in 1986) cult manga series created by Mamoru Nagano, who is best known for his collaborations with YoshiyukiTomino, especially ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]''. While not quite his solo debut (that would be ''Fool for the City'', a short story mostly about rock music that was also serialized in Newtype the year before FSS began) FSS has arguably become Nagano's most distinctive work and his career-defining Magnum Opus.

** The series also contains numerous references to ''Franchise/{{Dune}}'', most notably the Fatimas' similarity to mentats, with the blue contact lenses they wear resembling the solid blue eyes of the spice habituate, while the Etrimls resemble the mutated Navigators. Grand Duke Juba, main antagonist of the first story arc and his somewhat longer-lived step-nephew Decors Weissmel are pretty obviously based on Baron Vladimir and Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen (unsurprising, considering that Mamoru Nagano also based [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Yazan Gable]]'s character design on {{Sting}}'s portrayal of Feyd-Rautha in Creator/DavidLynch's movie version). Bosjathfort also bears some resemblance to Baron Harkonnen, being an evil, diseased mutant who later possesses a much younger body. Duke Rogner is partly based on Duncan Idaho, being a master swordsman who repeatedly dies and comes back to life. The Colus family resemble House Atreides, particularly Colus VI to Paul.
