**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.

* Also from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ,'' what happens when [[spoiler:Haman shoots Leina]]. Judau, normally a HotBlooded kid, completely '''snaps''' in the mom and grandmom of all tranquil furies, with anger and power strong enough to cause Haman to FreakOut and literally cry in fear and be felt by Newtypes who were ''far'' away from the place. (The visualization was a demonic phantom emerging out of him. The last time this happened, it was Dozle Zabi doing it.) That is how '''massively pissed off'' he was, and it's scary to see. This scene is probably why some consider Judau to be the Newtype with the strongest raw power.

** Most of the time, colony drops are glossed over to some extent: we only see the aftermath and hear about how terrible it was. However, the Dublin Drop in ''Gundam ZZ'' is the one time we see a colony drop up close and personal, from beginning to end. There's sheer panic in the streets as civilians desperately try to evacuate, the Federation is denying anything is wrong and refusing to send rescue, and the Neo-Zeon forces are deliberately shooting down evacuees and cutting off exit routes to ensure that ''as many people as possible would be killed''. Then the colony hits, and the shockwave is so severe it knocks warships out of the sky and the debris cloud is visible from over the horizon. Judau nearly has a nervous breakdown after regaining consciousness, because as a pretty powerful Newtype he can sense all the pain, terror, and grief of the millions of recently dead. Wile Ple and Kamille go utterly ''batshit''; the split-second image of Ple, who was not in the best mental health to begin with, spasming in terror is one of the most unnerving images in the entire franchise. At least for some people. The landscape is not just littered with but made out of flattened debris of the city, the sky is blotted out from the dust and smoke, and there is bits of falling metal raining down from the still-mostly-intact colony now sticking out of the ground, which collapses minutes later. The worst part is the Federation leaders' reaction to this: "Oh, well. At least it means fewer mouths to feed."
