* ArcWords: "Z" is a letter that refers to many important figures in the series. The names of the BadassCrew of each part each begins with letter Z. The Twelve Spheres draw power from the western Zodiac. [[spoiler: And the series' TrueFinalBoss is literally "Z"]].



*** In the same game, Zero accidentally places a Geass on [[spoiler:Esther, after she turns into a Dimensional Beast, commanding her to stop when she attacks the [[CodeGeass Shinkirou]]]]. A few scenarios later, Crowe believes [[spoiler:Esther cannot be turned back into a human]]; when he is attacked, Zero reissues the same command he placed, [[spoiler:proving to Crowe Esther isn't completely a Dimensional Beast, and still retains her humanity]].

** Though they survived the events of the ''Second Z'', [[spoiler:[[Anime/ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS Fyana]] and [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kittan]]]] in ''Jigoku-hen''. The former is DemotedToExtra for the game and dies on cue for ''Shining Heresey'', while the latter dies before the final scenario. Ultimatly averted with the former in ''Tengoku-Hen''.

** In an interesting nod, during the "[[Anime/MacrossFrontier Seikan Hikou]]" event, [[Anime/GenesisOfAquarion Apollo]] gets into the song so much he almost wants to do the memetic "KIRA ☆!" bit from it. In ''[[VideoGame/AnotherCenturysEpisode Another Century's Episode: R'', where ''Genesis of Aquarion'' and ''Macross Frontier'' are in the game, Apollo repeats this line near-verbatim during the same event.

** During the first battle with [[Anime/GetterRobo Shin Dragon]] in ''Hakai-Hen'', the Getter Team split into their respective Getter Machines, then combine with spare Getter Machines to form Getter-1, 2, and 3 respectively. They then link the three Getter Reactors together to fire a supercharged Getter Beam. This exact move was used during ''Crater Battle'', a prequel manga to ''Getter Robo Armageddon''.

** In ''Jigoku-hen'', a concentrated volley by [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz Serpents]] wipe out an entire team, save Heero and [[CodeGeass Kallen Kozuki]]. Some might wonder why Shinji, [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Rei Ayanami]] and Hibiki don't use their respective machines' barriers to block the attack at all.
