* EnsembleDarkhorse: Despite appearing for less than a minute in a single episode of the OAV, the GM Sniper 2 is hugely popular with the fandom and features prominently in numerous spinoffs, most notably ''Rise from the Ashes'' and is generally considered (in and out of universe) as the overall best non-Gundam Federation MS of the One Year War.

* 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 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.

** 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.
