** When playing as Amuro in the RX-78-2 in the first game's Original Mode, he'll remark that he never thought he'd pilot the Gundam again, referencing its destruction at the end of the original series. Likewise there's a scene where Amuro evades multiple Zakus by leaping from one to the next, like his springboard trick against the Black Tri-Stars.

** YMMV on this. While Honda is a beast, Musha and Lu Bu's most dangerous move is their lunging charge unblockable. Just as Lu Bu isn't quite as dangerous as a Boosted Gan Ning (One hit KO!) or Zhang Liao ([[FridgeBrilliance Lu Bu's dragon is tougher than he is when stats are equal, go fig]]), or the [[CherryTapping Qiaos/Zhou Yu]], the Hambrabi fulfills the role of Gan Ning (Stupidly powerful single-hit SP attack but overall only a mid-tier moveset), the Ples/Haman are the Qiaos, God Gundam is BOTH of these at once (SHIIIINING FINGER), and Nu Gundam/Sazabi round out the 'most irritating common fight' roster. Any of these can ruin your day a lot faster than either Musha when boosted. Wing Zero is no slouch either, having a Hambrabi-level hit as a NORMAL charge attack.

** The third game adds a few more outfits - [[spoiler:Char gets his Neo Zeon uniform (which becomes his default, and the CCA normal suit becomes an unlockable alternate), Haman Karn gets ''her'' Neo Zeon uniform (complete with slightly goofy-looking headpiece), and Katajina gets to let her hair down and just go crazy - literally.]]

* {{Backtracking}}: If you've ruined your relationship with another character, you can replay certain missions again (and again, and again, and again...) to repair it. The sequel partially averts this with special missions specifically designed to allow you to boost relationships with those who don't like you (which you will also play again, and again, and again...). The third game changes the relationship system so that friendship levels can only go up, not down, so the main reason to play missions again ([[RunningGag and again, and again, and again...]]) is to boost friendship levels higher and earn more cash.

The sequel partially averts this with special missions specifically designed to allow you to boost relationships with those who don't like you (which you will also play again, and again, and again...) as well as two DLC missions that let you largely boost relationships with everyone including those who don't like you (which you will also play again and again and again...) as well as the Quiz that also raises your relationship with everyone if you get all the answers right (which you will also play again and again and again...).

* CallingYourAttacks: Domon and Master Asia mostly, although Amuro, Char, Haman, Scirocco, Judau, and the Ples do it as well. Humorously, Heero lampshades whenever he and Domon use a Combination SP Attack (and once when they fight together in Heero's story mode), telling him to pipe down.

* DoubleUnlock: Many unlocks in ''Reborn'' form chains of grinding: Do operations to unlock a mission, clear the mission (possibly with a medal requirement) to unlock a pilot, play more missions with that pilot's personal mobile suit to make it mobile suit available for other pilots. Along the way, grind kills for cards and plans. The dependencies can be entangled to a GuideDamnIt degree.

** ''Shin Gundam Musou'' takes it a step further, using DLC to add characters from stories not yet represented in the series; specifically, [[Manga/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam Kincaid Nau's Crossbone Gundam X-1]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Heero Yuy's Wing Zero Custom]], and [[Anime/Gundam00AWakeningOfTheTrailblazer Setsuna F.

** Unlocking Sleggar's story missions in the second game revolves around forming better relationships with certain pilots...but the game doesn't tell you this at all, or even tells you the requirements at all until you've even met the pilots it wants, leaving the player to blindly do any random mission with him in the hopes of unlocking even one of his story missions.



*** Aw, he's just shy. That's the only way he knows how to make friends.



* InterfaceScrew: The third game's Mobile Suit selection screen defaults to your pilot's signature suit, on a menu wider than the screen. This is usually trivial, especially once you obtains licenses, but can occasionally screw you. For instance, Glemy defaults to the [[{{Mooks}} Class-3]] Bawoo, and you'd have to scroll uninvited over to the left to realize you can also sortie in any second-generation Qubeley (be it the Class-2 mass production model or the Class-1's belonging to the Ples, all much more useful), making early missions with him much easier.

Added DiffLines:

* InfinityPlusOneSword: In the original game, you farmed parts to upgrade your Mobile Suits, which could only hold three at once. If you had two or more of the same part, or two or more from the same mechanic, you'd get higher buff and possibly an bonus effect. The best, and rarest, parts were Tem Ray's Control Circuits which had no bonus effects but gave the best stat boosts Fight +100 Shot +100 Defense +100 Armor + 130.

* BiggerStick: While not an outright guarantee of victory, playing as the Class 1 Mobile Suits certainly makes battles easier than trying to slog through them with the limited Class 2s or outright weak Class 3s (which will generally only be used by players for CherryTapping purposes).
** Played with in the second game with the unplayable Mobile Armors, which are all quite fearsome at first glance but tend to go down with embarrassing ease to certain Mobile Suits (the Zeta in particular is a notorious MA-killer).

* HoverMecha: Understandable with Mobile Armors and legless Suits like the Zeong, but strangely even some legged Mobile Suits will never actually ''use'' their legs. The Scirocco-made MS are the most notable, as ''none'' of them use their legs.



* InstantArmor: All of the games feature powerups that allow Mobile Suits to instantly replenish a designated portion of their armor.



** In one of Four's missions in DW:G2, Kamille Bidan shows up for the sole purpose of helping you, and then proceeds to park himself offscreen and not move while you take on a giant mecha by yourself. Thanks a lot, Kamille. (In his defense, Four does explicitly say that taking down the Psyco Gundam is [[ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself Something She's Got To Do Herself]].)
** It's also worth pointing out that, while they never do anything ''plotline'' important, your fellow squad leaders and aces are far from useless. They manage to capture enemy fields often enough, and the "Leadership" skill makes them fight better. In DW:G3, they become even more useful, though you still have to save their bacon occasionally.

''DW:GR'' increases this to over 80 playable characters (a lot more if you count Partner-only and non-playable characters) and over 120 Mobile Suits/Armors. Have fun unlocking them all!

* MookChivalry: Averted. The Mook suits will swarm you, and attack from off screen. Bazooka wielders are by far the worst, practically stunlocking you with a constant barrage. In DW:G3 the Mook AI is improved, and they will quite often attack you in formation, as well as synchronize attacks (i.e. ranged MS shooting you while melee MS jump you).

Also if you pay attention to their storymodes this time around [[FridgeBrilliance it is actually not out of place]].

In which case he hilariously replaces Char on Axis, leading to much lampshading). It's like their entire reason for existing. There are also minor hints as to who teams up with who in their EX mode storylines based upon unique dual SP attack quotes.


Added DiffLines:

* TransformingMecha: Certain Suits like the Zeta Gundam and Baund Doc can transform into mobile armor modes that allow them to fly and move through fields much quicker. This is especially useful in the first game, where the fields are all much wider than they were in the sequels.


Added DiffLines:

* WalkingTank: This is the Big Zam in a nutshell, and most of the other Mobile Armors classify as well to greater or lesser degrees.

* CrutchCharacter: The Unicorn Gundam in DWG3. You can get him available relatively early, and his Destroy Mode drastically increases the speed and range, as well as giving a small bonus in attack. And regardless of the pilot's skill, Destroy Mode allows the pilot to do a extremely fast and powerful chain combo that will hit several enemies at once, buffing his SP gause extremely fast as well. While he will dominate any story mission without specific Mobile Suit requirements, using him to blast throught the game will often end with the player seeing himself without most licences, lacking good plans to develop other Mobile Suits, and if the player doesn't bother switching the pilots every now and then, most of the remaining pilots will be at low levels. Cue the player looking at a 6-Star Rank mission where he is required to use a pilot he never touched, with a Rank 1 Suit he didn't play once.

* FakeDifficulty: The higher difficulty levels tend to eschew making the enemies smarter or giving them better attacks in favor of just dialing their stats UpToEleven, forcing the player to exploit their ArtificialStupidity to defeat them. A classic technique from the first game onward was to shoot a stupidly powerful enemy from far away, then leave its battle zone and wait for it to go back to its designated spot before repeating until it was dead, and a large part of the reason why the third game was poorly received was that its health regeneration mechanic really screwed with this strategy (which players still had to rely on, due to the enemies still being strong enough to kill them with a few hits if fought head-on).



** Pretty damn scary in the original series too! [[MoralEventHorizon Wiping out colonies just to stay on someone's good side?]] She's clearly so far out there no dissonance trope can explain away any of what she does. Can't help but wonder if Scirocco responds to her overtures simply because he fears the monster he's created might gas the Jupitris similarly if he doesn't put her on the same pedestal as Sarah.

* GlassCannon: In DW3 there exist two skills, one that sacrifices the ability to block, and one that sacrifices the ability to repair armor; in exchange the player gets a huge boost to attack power. If you use both skills, you can kill enemy aces ludicrously easy but it's almost certain death if you get powered down or can't dodge an enemy SP attack. In DW2 the former of the skills also existed.
