* 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.

* EnemyMine: If you get the bad Zeon ending in Blood of Zeon for the PS1, [[spoiler: Part 2 opens with Gihren joining forces with Revil and the AEUG forming an alliance fighting against the Titans, who has seized control of the Earth Federation and most of Earth through a coup d'etat]]

* ButtMonkey: Poor Johnny Ridden is constantly getting mistaken for Char, even by allies. The worst part is that Char himself is actually quite respectful of Johnny, complimenting him on his skills.



** Transport aircraft like the Medea, Fat Uncle and Garuda-class can carry lots of MS and move quickly in the atmosphere, but they have virtually no use as combat units and are totally unusable once the main battlefields move to space.
** Virtually all aquatic MS and units (e.g. submarines) are totally useless once most battles shift to space.



** The GM Light Armour has this as its primary advantage, as its armour is stripped down to improve agility and speed.



* FrontlineGeneral: Any highly ranked officer can serve on the frontlines, no matter how much they whine or complain when forced into battle. Of course, some officers like Dozle and Revil take to it much better than others.

to:

* 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.
* FrontlineGeneral: Any highly ranked officer can serve on the frontlines, front lines, no matter how much they whine or complain when forced into battle. Of course, some officers like Dozle and Revil take to it much better than others.



* GlassCannon: The GM Light Armour is a GM with most of the armour removed to improve its speed, reaction time and agility. It's also equipped with a powerful beam gun (as opposed to the GM's beam spray gun). However, the trade-off is how fragile it is.



* WhatTheHellHero: You're

to:

* WhatTheHellHero: You're The player will sometimes be subjected to this if you opt to refuse certain characters permission to proceed with their projects. For example, refusing to approve [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket Operation Rubicon]] leads to Killing protesting the fact that a new Gundam may soon appear on the battlefield.
** Sometimes, not approving a course of action can act as [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong making things right.]] Allowing Ginias Sahalin the resources to complete his Apsalas Project (and denying Yuri's request to halt the project) leads to the completion of the Apsalas, without resulting in the deaths of just about every named character attached to the project.

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 GMs 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).

Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: Most mass-production, or even limited mass-production MS fall under this. It might be tempting to manufacture as many SuperPrototypes as possible, but that isn't always cost-effective. A Gundam takes several turns to produce compared to a single turn for a GM, and Amuro in a GM is still [[AcePilot Amuro Ray]].


Added DiffLines:

* 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.
** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], because while an excellent pilot, Amuro really isn't suited for things like commanding an entire warship.

** Several of Zeon's latter One Year War units still have this problem. The Goufs and Doms can only operate on Earth (though Doms can be modified into space-faring Rick Doms), while the highly mobile High Speed Zakus are space-use only.
* DanceBattler: Federal Forces ace pilot Reed Wolf apparently fights like this, as he became an ace pilot using nothing more than a ''Saberfish'' (a space-capable fighter plane). When he becomes a mobile suit pilot, he prefers fast, lightweight machines. His nickname is even ''Dancing Black Death''.

* GuideDangIt: Can sometimes happen to a player who isn't well-versed in the Gundam series. Oh, a scientist has developed a new Mobile Armour that could attack Jaburo? Sure, let's approve it. What? It's Ginias Sahalin? Awww, dear.

''Gihren no Yabou'' (''Gihren's Ambition''), commonly known as ''[[AlliterativeAppeal 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.
