Removing gratuitious Japanese.
** At the end of the fifth episode, when Bernie calls Al to tell him he's changing his mind and is going to stay and destroy the Gundam, Al finishes the call by saying "I love you, Bernie". Funnier still later on in Japan, where Al's [[TheOtherDarrin replacement seiyuu]] is Creator/KumikoWatanabe, who ended up getting married to Bernie's seiyuu Creator/KoujiTsujitani in 2012.

* BaseBreaker - One of the most polarizing series in the franchise, with a roughly even split. * CompleteMonster: While this first ''Gundam'' {{OVA}} is notable for GreyAndGrayMorality, there is no such morality for the [[SmugSnake smug]] [[InsaneAdmiral Colonel]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Killing]], the BigBad high-ranking Gihren loyalist (and Gihren {{expy}}) who took part in [[GrandTheftPrototype Operation Rubicon]]. He deliberately sabotaged Operation Rubicon (which revolved around stealing or destroying the new [[SuperPrototype Alex Gundam]]), causing the death of the whole Cyclops Team (only NewMeat Bernard Wiseman survived, and only because he got lucky); he did that just to give his superiors an excuse to destroy the civilian colony of Side 6 with [[NukeEm nuclear weapons]]. He's also a firm believer in WeHaveReserves, KlingonPromotion and ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill. When his commander overrides the order to destroy Side 6, Killing shoots him dead and usurps control of the operation, orders the nukes launched, and prompts Bernie's suicidal attack on the Gundam Alex in the hopes of heading off the strike. While the attack fails thanks to a timely intervention of the Earth Federation forces, all the suffering the protagonists of this miniseries go through can [[BigBad ultimately be traced back to him]]. * CrowningMomentOfAwesome - Bernie faces down a [[SuperPrototype Gundam]] in a [[MechaMooks Zaku]] [[spoiler:and almost wins]]. * CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming - Bernie lifting up Al over his shoulders as they pretend it's an airplane. * DoNotDoThisCoolThing - A story about how glorifying war through cartoons and toys is wrong... in a ''Gundam'' series. It's likely that ''0080'' ''knows'' this, given the reaction of Al's friends at the end. See the page quote. * HilariousInHindsight - Bernie cracks a lock on a Fed installation with an electronic thingy that even goes "LOCKOFF"... the FanNickname [[{{Gundam00}} for the second Lockon.]] * MemeticMutation - Bernie's [[spoiler: remains looking like "a pile of hamburger" leads to some black humor about Bernie's Burgers within the fandom.]]

* TheScrappy - It's been suggested by some fans of the series that Alfred's removal would significantly improve the show, despite the entire thing being a [[MisaimedFandom story about the effects of the horrors of war on innocents]].

* CompleteMonster: One can make a ''very'' good case for Colonel Killing, who sabotages his own operation, murders his superior, and tries to nuke Side 6, all while espousing loyalty to fellow CM [[MobileSuitGundam Gihren Zabi]] and ''[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking being named]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Killing]]''.
