* GenreBusting: It's almost hilarious just how much better this series is than a lot of other Franchise/{{Gundam}} entries, just because it doesn't subscribe to most of the tropes associated with it. And even if YMMV on the "better" part, the fact that the series is so different is pretty obvious.

* HeyItsThatGuy[=/=]RetroactiveRecognition: The Elgolela (the transforming mobile armor piloted by [[spoiler:Bernadette]]) was a fan-submitted design for a contest; the designer was Kanetake Ebikawa, who would go on to work on such series as ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]''.

* ArcFatigue: Volume 5 starts with [[spoiler:Mother Vanguard sunk and Kincaid supposedly killed]], but then it hits the brakes for a while and focuses on Tobia, Berah, and Bernadette on Earth undergoing a collective HeroicBSOD over said events, sitting out the war as the Jovians walk all over the Federation. It isn't until [[spoiler:Kincaid comes back]] at the start of Volume 6 that things pick up again.

** Kincaid isn't to be outdone himself. ''Gundam'' establishes that the F91's VSBR weapon is capable of penetrating beam shields. When faced with F91s, what does he do? Layers his shields, along with his beam zanber, allowing him to stop the "unstoppable". And, of course, the fight mentioned under CripplingOverSpecialization.
** The battle with the Jovian MA Elefante, where Tobia's emerging Newtype powers let him shoot down its AttackDrones, then use the last surviving one as a [[SteppingStonesInTheSky Stepping Stone in the Sky]] so he can [[RammingAlwaysWorks ram it with his Pez Batara's beam axe]]. Kincaid steps in to help him finish it off, and then they aim the burning wreck at the Jovian defensive line and let it plow into their ships.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: In the second chapter, Berah is in the shower when she spots someone outside. Her response is to chase the Peeping Tom out...while instantly assuming it's Kincaid. For extra comedy points, he's nearby when she starts angrily yelling his name, and his reaction has a definite "fear of God" element to it, making it look like Berah has good reason to suspect him.

** In ''Ghost'' you have Font managing to survive and escape from an attack by both Jovians and the [[MobileSuitVictoryGundam Zanscare Empire]] with a ''Zaku left over from the One Year War'' long enough to be rescued by an oddly calm blind man [[spoiler:revealed to be an older Tobia Arronax]].

** Just about the entirety of ''Skull Heart'' chapter "Satellite of the Apes". Harrison is assigned to investigate an old Zeon research satellite, under advice from an ancient Zeon stalwart (who actually has to physically stop himself from doing the Sieg Zeon salute a couple of times). What's at the satellite? Newtype monkeys, piloting four-armed Zakus, part of a project started by [[spoiler:Garma]] Zabi after witnessing a monkey playing ''{{Pac-Man}}''. And the monkeys kick Harrison's ass until Tobia uses the Crossbone's cape, yellow spray paint, and oxygen tanks to make a ''giant banana-shaped balloon'' that distracts them long enough for Harrison to shut them down.

** Not to mention the fight where he takes on the Death Gale team by himself and wins. Particularly, taking out the heavily armored Totouga by stabbing a beam saber into its shoulder, then ''punching it out the other side''.

Added DiffLines:

* CargoShip: Grey Stoke has a brotherly bond with the Gump. Which makes sense, since he's been using it ever since [[spoiler:it was called the ZZ Gundam]].
