** By extension, all weapons in the franchise, including warships and even the heroic Gundams themselves, are NightmareFuel. One professor even states to Alfred in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket'' that they are NecessarilyEvil, and are never meant to bring people happiness. ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamMSIgloo'' even shows us in one episode what it feels like to die at the hands of the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam White Devil]] and by extension how terrified Zeon soldiers are when hearing this infamous name.

Exceptions that defy this trope include Nu Gundam and 00 series (most notably, Quanta), which are created to help people communicate their feelings and find their lost love and selves rather than just kill and destroy.

**Some of the more detailed model kits clear this up, in really worrying ways. Picture it: you're building a Zaku II, Gundam's equivalent to a biplane and a beloved suit with a history of very human, well-loved characters using it. You finish the internal frame for the torso, and there's a rounded component that fits right below where the cockpit is...and the manual [[FridgeHorror calls for a nuclear symbol on top]]. Although from a design perspective this might be as much to help keep the pilot warm in space as anything else, it's still scary to imagine being sent into combat literally sitting on top of one of these things.

** The manner of which Full Frontal's mobile armor takes over mobile suits is quite creepy to see, especially when one of the Londo Bell mobile suits writhed and twisted its neck not unlike the mechs from Evangelion. The fact that the pilots can still very well see what's happening and communicate while losing all control of their suit (effectively turning them into [[ArmoredCoffins armored coffins]] that attack their comrades) makes it all the more disturbing.

* The initial invasion of Earth by the Moonrace's Dianna Counter forces counts as this. Which wouldn't be unusual for a ''Gundam'' show...except that Earth people are no more advanced than in ''UsefulNotes/WorldWarI''. From the perspective of someone on Earth, the realization that all your guns and biplanes do close to ''nothing'' against an entire army of mobile suits [[spoiler:even after the titular Turn-A shows up and they find their own caches of LostTechnology weapons]] is downright ''terrifying''.
* The Turn-A and Turn-X ''themselves'' are essentially walking Nightmare Fuel, much like the ''Ideon.'' In addition to outclassing just about every mobile suit ever made in the Dark History (while using only a ''small fraction'' of their full power), there's also the "Moonlight Butterfly" [[spoiler:a [[GreyGoo nanomachine system]] that can destroy any technology, which was also responsible for ending said Dark History by destroying civilization on Earth thousands of years before the series takes place]]. There's a good reason why they're so feared.
** There's also the fact that the [[spoiler:nanomachines used]] are capable of regenerating the mobile suit's pilot indefinitely. [[spoiler:Given that Gym Giningham is trapped in the cocoon generated by the Moonlight Butterfly after the last battle, this also means that he'll be kept alive and conscious [[AndIMustScream for all time]].]]
* The implications of the Dark History are this and a tearjerker. [[spoiler:No matter what the protagonists achieved in the other ''Gundam'' shows, it ultimately leads to the Moonlight Butterfly.]]

*Episode 41 of ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' makes it worse as we see an colony gassing in progress as Reccoa is forced to lead one on an side 2 colony and secedes. the procedure is basically flying an G3 Gas tank over to the colony and connecting it to the life support system basically turning the entire colony interior to one large gas chamber with no escape. The worst part is this is just Bask's idea of an loyalty test and she reluctantly goes along with this and allows eight million innocent civilians to die.
