* KatanasAreJustBetter: Not quite. The Ninja Sword, looted from the Black Assassin optional boss immediately before Tohai, is slightly behind the best sword the player is capable of buying at that point in the game and gets outclassed quickly. Its only noteworthy feature is that it inflicts the Acid status effect on the target.
** Its Kampfer owner, on the other hand, is ''very'' deadly with it, almost always scoring critical hits that can wipe out somewhere around 90% of a mobile suit's health in one hit. Add in the fact that he's an avid user of [[SwordBeam Sonic]] [[OneHitPolykill Storm]] and you can see why he's a bonus boss.

* LethalJokeCharacter: Li Fang first appears in a Guncannon (a ranged-oriented suit) using barefisted melee attacks. She's still rather impressive in it.

Note that this effort will not be wasted; ''MS Saga'' can reach NintendoHard levels even during normal gameplay. Additional extras, including {{Bonus Dungeon}}s, {{Bonus Boss}}es, BossInMookClothing battles, TournamentArc {{Sidequest}}s, and more are added at nearly all points in the game. Thankfully, these are generally optional, and in fact sometimes become LostForever without [[GuideDangIt their existence ever really being hinted at]]. Getting true OneHundredPercentCompletion is an impressive feat.

** In addition, it makes a small reference to [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey 2001: A Space Odyssey]] when [[spoiler:Hal turns on the party; Tristan says that he'll stop Hal, and Hal replies that "I'm afraid I can't let you do that."]] Extra points if you name Tristan "Dave" on the character-naming screen at the beginning.

* GatlingGood: Oh baby. In addition to both versions of Heavyarms' iconic weapon, we also get the [[GundamF91 G-Cannon's]] cannons and the right arm of the obscure MS-12 Gigan, a heavy weapons MS that was slated to appear in the original 52 episode version of ''MobileSuitGundam''.

* MythologyGag: There's a subtle one where Hal offers you a new mobile suit and you have to pick between a Gelgoog or Gyan (you can buy the other one later, though). This references the backstory of the original ''MobileSuitGundam'' where the two mobile suits were designs from rival defense contractors competing to be mass-produced.

* BishonenLine: Done with the BigBad's ''mecha''. He starts off in the Master Gundam from GGundam than upgrades to the nonhumanoid [[http://mahq.net/mecha/gundam/cca/nz-333.htm Alpha Azieru]] mobile armor, and when that's defeated he uses the G-System to reconfigure it into an evil version of [[http://mahq.net/mecha/gundam/endlesswaltz/xxxg-00w0.htm Wing Zero Custom]], which has a more familiar humanoid appearance.

''MS Saga: A New Dawn'', also known by its Japanese title ''Gundam: True Odyssey'', is a {{PS2}} {{RPG}} loosely based on the long-running ''{{Franchise/Gundam}}'' franchise. An odd duck by any standard, ''MS Saga'' places the iconic HumongousMecha of the ''Gundam'' franchise in an entirely new setting and plot, effectively creating an(other) AlternateUniverse to add to the ''Gundam'' menagerie. The result is predictably {{Troperiffic}}, cheerfully combining standard {{JRPG}} tropes with standard ''Gundam'' tropes into something of a ClicheStorm that may none the less be a GuiltyPleasure for fans of either (or especially both).

''MS Saga'' incorporates mecha primarily from the Universal Century ''{{Franchise/Gundam}}'' timeline, specifically from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' to ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char's Counterattack]]'', but includes weapons and equipment from everything through to ''[[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]]'' (aside from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Gundam Unicorn]]'', which was released after the game came out). Mecha and equipment from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'' and ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'' also appear, though primarily as rewards for beating the aforementioned optional content. The game did poorly both critically and financially, having the dubious honor of being the worst selling ''Gundam'' PS2 game ever, though it's something of a CultClassic among the few who took a shine to it.

* PietaPlagiarism: The cover art.

* PietaPlagiarism: The cover art.{{GenderFlip}}ped version; Tristan cradling Aeon's limp body is prominently featured on the box art. Oddly, this is actually a depiction of the scene early in the game where Aeon is ''first introduced''.
