** How Grace got her FanNickname is a significant case. [[spoiler:Grace never says the name, but she happened to grope her breasts anyway, and everyone happened to remember Sheryl's infamous scene introducing "Hopes and Dreams", and since Grace is EVIL, it was inverted: "Despairs and Nightmares"]]

* [[spoiler: [[HesJustHiding He's Just Hiding]]. Alto Saotome's fate in the end of Sayonara no Tsubasa]]: Movie-verse only.
** [[spoiler: And in Sheryl's case it's "She's Just Sleeping", though this is slightly more justified, as she visibly stirs at the end.]]

** [[spoiler: And
only for [[spoiler:Alto and Sheryl.]] Fans questioned whether or not they were dead due to the ambiguity of the ending, but [[WordOfGod Kawamori]] clarified that [[spoiler:they both survived: Sheryl was in Sheryl's case it's "She's Just Sleeping", though a coma for a while but woke up, while Alto returned to the Frontier Fleet after a bit. Kawamori even expressed shock that anyone thought the two of them ended up dead, as this is slightly more justified, as she visibly stirs at the end.was apparently not even remotely what he was trying to imply.]]

** It's even worse when both sides start using SlutShaming against the other. Sheryl/Alto fans say that Ranka is a barely legal skank and jail bait who uses her cute looks to attract Alto so he won't choose a "Stronger, Perfect And Better Developed Real Woman" like Sheryl, while Ranka/Alto fans retort that Sheryl's {{Stripperiffic}} outfits and large breasts make her a slut who would rape Alto if hse could unlike sweet and poor and flatchested Ranka.

* {{Narm}}: In episode 19, Ranka is running upstairs to the launch deck, [[spoiler:elated because she thinks Alto loves her, when she suddenly barges in on Alto comforting Sheryl (who had collapsed due to [[IllGirl her illness]], but Ranka doesn't know about that).]] On the one hand, it's sad to see poor, brokenhearted Ranka stand there, saying, "It can't be..." with a frozen smile on her face. On the other, it becomes hilarious when one remembers that this is Alto ''[[RanmaOneHalf Saotome]]'', and that [[NamesTheSame his predecessor]] was often caught in ''the exact same situations'', with ''the exact same results''. Ranka should have screamed "I HATE YOU, ALTO!" and [[MegatonPunch punch him into the distance]].

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome [[spoiler:Michel]]'s death scene set to "Diamond Crevasse." Bonus for also being a hell of a TearJerker as well.

* VillainDecay: The Ghost V-9 drones, the mass-production model of the deadly Ghost X-9 of ''MacrossPlus'', which could singlehandedly dogfight two {{Ace Pilot}}s in {{Super Prototype}}s to a standstill,) are reduced to being mere EliteMooks in the final battle of ''Frontier''. To be fair, it has been almost 20 years since the events of Macross Plus, with requisite advantages in technology. Besides, you still never see one get taken out by a human pilot - the only thing that is shown actually standing up to Galaxy's V-9s are Luca's own AIF-7S's once released to full AI control. Also, as soon as all of the non-hero pilots see them, they instantly crap their pants and are shown getting blown up rather quickly.

* MoeMoe: Ranka is this to some degree. Klan also appears at first to be a moeblob otaku fetish object of a character, but she ends up being a deconstruction of the type.
** Ranka is also a bit of a deconstruction with the Moe points she has, though not to the extent of Klan. Namely, despite her cuteness, it does not stop her from making decisions that are less than impressive to some viewers.
