The latest in the series is ''Shin Gihren no Yabou'' (aka New Gihren's Greed). Essentially a remake of the original game, it was released on the PSP in 2011, including among others updated attack scenes, a new anime opening and characters from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Gundam Unicorn]].'' It differed from earlier series in two significant ways: 1) units are now individuals instead of being produced in teams of three or five, which additionally could be grouped into stacks of 5 units as opposed to three in the past (so now a player could have a group made up of 2 GMs and 3 Balls instead of a group made up of 2 squads of 3 {{GM}}s each and 1 squad of 3 Balls), and 2) the player plays as certain characters (besides Gihren and Revil, Amuro, Char, Ranba Ral and Dozle are selectable). Rank affects what units and resources are available to the player (for example, Amuro is a mere sergeant and can only command a small squad, and even at his highest possible rank may only command a single ship or two while someone like Dozle or Tianamen, both much higher ranked, can command entire fleets).

* AceCustom: As this is a Gundam game, this appears quite often. One of the big draws of the series is that the player can develop ace customs that certain pilots never had in the canon, such as Ranba Ral receiving a customised Dom and Gelgoog (he died in battle before the Gelgoog was even developed) and Char piloting his own custom Gundam.

* ForWantOfANail: This series makes it clear that Ranba Ral would've defeated and captured the White Base if the Doms he'd been promised had been delivered on schedule. There are similar occurrences throughout the series, such as giving Ginias Sahalin full support means he doesn't go insane from the stress, and deciding to let the White Base remain part of the main Federal Forces (as opposed to functioning as an independently operating self-contained unit) prevents the deaths of several characters such as Matilda, Woody and Ryu Jose.

** Others come in the form of dialogue, such as Captain Paolo Cassius getting a variation of his "It's Char, the Red Comet! Run!" line for several other Zeon aces (e.g. "It's Shin Matsunaga, the White Wolf! Run!", "It's Ranba Ral, the Blue Nova! Run!" and so on). Likewise, Ramba Ral gets variations of his "This is not a Zaku! Not a Zaku!" when piloting a Dom ("This is not a Gouf! Not a Gouf!") or a Gelgoog/Gyan ("This is not a Dom! Not a Dom!").

* RealityEnsues: The encyclopedia entries of several characters end with them dying in battle at Abaoaqu, which is what one would expect to happen when you have numerous ace pilots in their customised MS all gathered in one place. Among the casualties are Thomas Kurtz of the Chimera Unit (Zeon's BadassCrew of aces) and the Federal ace Dancing Black Death Reed Wolf. Johnny Ridden is listed as MIA and presumed dead (though later material confirms he survived).
* RedBaron: Several pilots have their own nicknames and customised suits. The most famous is of course The Red Comet Char Aznable, but you also have the Blue Nova Ranba Ral, the Crimson Lightning Johnny Ridden, the White Wolf Shin Matsunaga and the Nightmare of Solomon Anavel Gato. The Federals get a few too, such as White Devil Amuro Ray and Reed Wolf, the Dancing Black Death.

* ShoutOut: The observant player can see that the series' title, ''Gihren no Yabou'', is a play on the strategy series ''[[VideoGame/NobunagasAmbition Nobunaga no Yabou]]''. The english translated titles play with this with ''Gihren no Yabou'' by using an alliterative synonym (substituting "ambition" for "greed.")



* UpThroughTheRanks: This happens in Shin Gihren's Greed if you choose to play as a low-ranking character like Amuro, Char, Ranba Ral or Bright. As you succeed in battle, you get promoted to higher and higher ranks, though there is a cap. Bright, for example, can reach his Char's Counterattack rank of Colonel, while Amuro can only reach Captain.

* GenreSavvy: The player can play whoever they control as this. However, certain characters act like this anyway, such as Revil being wary when Jamitov requests permission to set up a StateSec task force called the Titans.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Arguably Gihren Zabi himself in Blood of Zeon and the earlier games despite [[ANaziByAnyOtherName what he is in Canon]](some fans bothered by the MisaimedFandom for Zeon in parts of the Gundam fanbase do suspect that ending to be [[UnreliableNarrator in-universe propaganda]] through). Inverted in Axis No Kyoui V when he can be just as bad as he was in the canon through the alignment system.
** In Axis no Kyoui, pretty much all the antagonist factions can be seen as this in a full law route.

* NonstandardGameOver: Many special endings occur due to making the wrong decision in the event trees. Sometimes, this is even the historical event path, as with [[spoiler: in the Zeon campaign, Kycilia Zabi executing Gihren for patricide]].

The fourth and most recent game, ''Gihren's Greed: The Menace of Axis'', restores many of the features missing in the last game and returns the battles to 2D, instead of 3D. The timeline is stretched to include the events of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Gundam ZZ]]'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char's Counterattack]],'' Factions featured in "Blood of Zeon" also make an reappearance. However it removes the ability to create your own faction AS well as the diplomacy system, replacing it with the [[KarmaMeter Alignment System]]. This game contained EVERY single Gundam protagonist and antagonist, that piloted a mobile suit or was on a warship. Units from ''Char's Counterattack'', ''MsIgloo'', ''Hathaway's Flash'' and many more are included--there are said to be roughly 400 MS/MA featured in this version of the video game. A major feature that was taken out were Event scenes, having animation: instead there are more than 400 still scenes created in collaboration with Sunrise to represent important events as portrayed in previous titles.

* TheStarscream: Ubiquitous; this is Gundam, after all, and every villain faction has someone scheming for the top villain's slot. [[spoiler: Paptimus Scirocco to the Titans, Kycilia Zabi and later Haman Khan to the Principality of Zeon, and Glemmy Toto to Axis Zeon.]]

''Gihren no Yabou'' (''Gihren's Ambition''), commonly known as ''[[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Gihren's Greed]]'', is a turn-based strategy game set in the Universal Century timeline of the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise. It is based political and military management to the One Year War (and in later games, beyond). In a way, it is like ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}}'' and ''HeartsOfIron'', but simpler to manage, and more difficult. This series is quite popular on 4chan's /m/board, with threads popping up every now and then.

* BladeOnAStick: While the original carried a RoyalRapier-style beam sword, many of the production model Gyans you can make specialize in polearms, including one with [[ThisIsADrill a drill on top]].


Added DiffLines:

* JoustingLance: While the original carried a RoyalRapier-style beam sword, most of the Gyan variations from this series wield beam lances supplimented by shields packed with weapons.
