** The OVA version fully qualifies: aside for many just ignoring everything the Aphrodians throw at them during the assault on Io, the one attacked by the Killer Commandos is hit with half a dozen anti-tank missiles and [[RammingAlwaysWorks a humongous truck]] [[StuffBlowingUp full of high-powered fuel]] and [[spoiler:''doesn't suffer any visible damage]]'', much to the shock of the attackers and ''its own crew'' (after the truck exploded, the tank stopped moving and firing for a few seconds before they started moving)]], and is only destroyed by repeated attacks from [[spoiler:a ''building-sized scraper'']]. It takes ''railguns'' to reliably defeat these monsters...

* AdaptationalBadass: The Octopus tank in the OVA is much tougher than in the manga, having more weapons and surviving attacks that would have destroyed the manga original. In the same vein, Aphrodia's war bikes in the manga carried conventional 80mm rifles and anti-tank rockets, but their animated counterparts were equipped with railguns.
* AdaptationalWimp: In the OVA, Io City falls against the airborne invasion, but in the manga the garrison (barely) manages to repel it, leading to escalation and a full invasion.



* AttackItsWeakPoint: The combat bikers of Aphrodia's army are specifically instructed to attack Ishtar's Octopus tanks by shooting the troop hatch and the oxygen tanks of the NBC protection, as the sheer size and armor of said tanks make them practically invulnerable to their weapons (or the heavier weapons of most tanks) otherwise.

* TheJuggernaut: The Octopus, Ishtar's main tank, is presented as this, as it ''1-meter thick armor'' needs a 150mm gun to be penetrated (and Aphrodia doesn't have vehicles with such a large gun) and has an overwhelming armament of a 160mm main gun, a coaxial 220mm missile launcher, and a 20mm autocannon on the commander's hatch for the small fries, and carries a squad of soldiers.
