* ShrugOfGod: Subverted if you have the [[UpdatedRerelease blue ray version]] of the Macross Frontier, in the commentaries, Kawamori actually gives you plenty of hints on how the love triangle will end.

* NamesTheSame: Brera's "official" [=NUNS=] callsign Antares 1 [[AceCombatJointAssault is way too familiar since it's also the callsign of a certain Ace Combat protagonist.]] Although it can be a coincidence since Joint Assault was released mostly worldwide in 2010 while the TV series was first released in Japan in 2008.

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Creator/YuuichiNakamura, who voices Alto, is also the voice of Tomoya from ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'' and Graham from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'', and there's some places where you half expect Alto to sprout blond hair.
*** Alto really did feel like Tomoya in a mecha setting, specially since one of his love interests shared some similarities with Tomoya's main love interest in Clannad (Both adorably shy, and end up coming out of their shell almost entirely thanks to Tomoya/Alto; both are trying to get onto a stage; both have trouble remembering the past...).
*** Also, as this show ran between seasons of ''Gundam 00'', fans of that show also noticed how visually Alto resembled Graham's best bud and mecha designer, Billy Katagiri. There was fanart that depicted Billy and Graham doing a fusion dance, and thus becoming Alto.
** Sheryl's seiyu Creator/AyaEndo voiced Miyuki in ''LuckyStar'' and Kinue in ''Gundam 00''. Not quite as recognizable due to the range of roles (and talent of the actress) but there are moments of similarity between Kinue and Sheryl.
*** Naturally, during the release of figures where the Lucky Star cast cosplayed as Macross Frontier cast, Miyuki ended up becoming Sheryl.
*** Some of her {{Lucky Star}} castmates also appear in minor roles Fukahara Kaori and Creator/AyaHirano play two of the three bridge bunnes and Hirano also does double duty as Pixie Squadron pilot Nene Rora (aka the pink haired one).
** Mikhail's VA, Creator/HiroshiKamiya, is [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Tieria]] from the same, and generally sounds like what Tieria would sound like if he [[TheStoic actually had a sense of humor]].
** You guys missed Creator/KikukoInoue as Grace? the "Goddess" of all Voice Actresses. (For those who don't get the pun, Belldandy-Ah My Goddess) [[spoiler:Though as of how things goes on for her, she's more like [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear I-No]] reborn]]
** Katsuyuki Konishi, who voices Ozma Lee here, has voiced several prominent robot-show roles, including [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]] and [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Volfogg]]. The latter is particularly notable in context of Mac F as a few times when Ozma has had to sound formal, he ends up sounding almost ''exactly'' like Volfogg.
** Jun Fukuyama voices Luca who is nearly a shota-type character....he hasn't played one in a long time.
** When Leon Mishima starts getting into his rousing speech: hey, isn't that [[Creator/TomokazuSugita Kyon]]?

Added DiffLines:

** On certain internet forums, specifically those dedicated to comparing multiple series in fictional battles, the MDE weapons from ''Frontier'' have earned the name "Go the Hell Away Weapons" for their effect of simply warping whatever they hit away into super-dimension space.

** Part of the fandom has started calling Brera "Evil Jesus" due to his resembling [[GundamSeed Kira Yamato]] (and having the same voice actor), whose FanNickname is "Jesus Yamato". The movie version of Brera is known as Undercoverpriestcop because of his outfit.

** Hiroshi Ohnogi has nothing to do with MacrossFrontier. Any MacrossFrontier Interview which includes Hiroshi Ohnogi is fake.

* NoExportForYou: Despite how incredible the show ended up being, the show ended up falling victim to the infamous legal snarls surrounding the ''Macross'' franchise; nobody ever said a word about even considering bringing it over, even after the show [=DVDs=], soundtracks, and related paraphernalia matched or shattered decade-old sales records in Japan (and this is for "anime" goods in ''general'', not just Macross stuff). There's still a thin, wispy chance that intense industry-wide pressure from everyone else (looking to strengthen the overall market with another prominent release) will make the various combatants in the Macross legal snarl play nice (or, perhaps Harmony Gold will be inattentive as it was for MacrossPlus) but as time grinds on this begins to look [[ScrewedByTheNetwork virtually impossible]].

* FanNickname:
** As a result of MemeticMutation, Ranka is sometimes referred to as "Nyan Nyan";
** Part of the fandom has started calling Brera "Evil Jesus" due to his resembling [[GundamSeed Kira Yamato]] (and having the same voice actor), whose FanNickname is "Jesus Yamato". The movie version of Brera is known as Undercoverpriestcop because of his outfit.
** To differentiate between her two forms, some referred to macronized (Zentradi size) Klan Klan as Klan-sama.
** Bobby Margot, SMS helmsman of the Macross Quarter, is often called [=GARby=] by fans when he has his {{Hot Blooded}} moments (those moments being referred to as entering [=GARby=] mode).
** towards the end of the series, the three bridge bunnies (Monica, Mina, and Ram) were referred to as "Bobby's Daughters".
** Alto has several of these, there's Alto-hime (that was used in the show by Mikhail) Pilot-hime (after he finally got designated a pilot) Kabuki-hime (reference to his past as a kabuki performer) & Sakura-hime (again referencing his past in kabuki theater, but more specifically the name of the last kabuki play he performed in.).
** Sheryl's boobs have the nickname of "Hopes and Dreams" after an infamous scene in Episode 11 which basically involves Sheryl groping her own boobs while declaring that her chest gives people "[[TheNicknamer hopes and dreams]]".
** Grace's boobs are known as "Despairs and Nightmares" after a somewhat less infamous scene where Grace gropes her own boobs [[spoiler:while she monologues her evil plan]], earning the nickname by MemeticMutation from Sheryl's own scene.
