** The subtitles for these games use common Japanese words, but with one kanji altered to change the meaning: ''Hakai'' goes from "destruction" (破壊) to "break world" (破界), ''Saisei'' from "rebirth" (再生) to "regen world" (再世), and ''Jigoku'' goes from "Hell" (地獄) to "time prison" (時獄), ''Tengoku'' goes from "Heaven" (天国) to "celetial prison" (天獄). Crosses with BilingualBonus for non-Japanese fans.

* ThePsychoRangers: ''Z: Special Disk'' gives us "Death Squad 13", Edel Bernal's attempt at forming a ZEUTH-style RagtagBunchOfMisfits. It begins as a unit composed of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Phantom Pain]] and Titans members under the orders of Neo Roanoke, then gains more members from mercenaries like Timp or Jason Beck, and others like the Frost Brothers and Gym tagging along for fun. It doesn't work nearly as well (most members are nuts, after all) and the squad ends up disbanded without ever meeting ZEUTH in combat once.

* RecurringBoss: Jason Beck appears in all ''Z'' installments, essentially the ''Alpha'' equivalent of [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Yazan Gable]]. CastingGag ensues as both characters are [[Creator/HochuOtsuka voiced by the same person]]. Note, however, that you don't fight him in Hakai-hen; he's actually a one-time ally there.

** In the case of ''Grendizer'', some fans believe it's not in ''Hakai-hen'' due to ''Battle of the Flying Saucers'' potentially being part of the line-up ''Saisei-hen'' (both shows are created by GoNagai, with the latter considered a prototype for the former). Once ''Saisei-hen'' was revealed, Banpresto stated they apparently forgot about ''Grendizer''.

** Any originals and series not returning in the ''Second Z'' are directly referenced, although the only series that don't come back are ''Mazinger Z'', ''Grendizer'', ''Getter Robo G'' and ''Eureka Seven'' TV series. One example includes Kamille asking the current Kouji how [[Anime/UFORoboGrendizer Duke Fleed]] and [[Anime/GreatMazinger Tetsuya Tsurugi]] are doing, before realizing this Kouji has never met them. [[spoiler:In regards to ''Eureka Seven'', its ADW-counterpart being different becomes a PlotPoint]]. Still, it helps prevent the problem that was present in the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' games, where a series appearing in one game and didn't appear in subsequent ones (''GiantRobo'' and ''Anime/BrainPowerd'') aren't mentioned at all, as if they were ExiledFromContinuity.

* FlameWar: Have an urgent need for supernova-grade heat? Go on a forum (preferably GameFAQs) and ask the dreaded question "Who's better: Rand or Setsuko?" or just mention them both in the same sentence and hide in a nuclear shelter.

** A thorough screenshot LP of Z and the Special Disk was done by Brunom, Dr. Pepper, & Caphi, with a combination of line-for-line translation and summaries. It can be found ''[[http://lparchive.org/Super-Robot-Wars-Z/ here]]''

* 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''.
