* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: Give or take a few accentual differences, "Into the Sky" (which was vocalized by Japanese singer Tielle) is actually done in fully-comprehensible and lyrically-consistent English.

* TrueArtIsAngsty: ''Gundam Unicorn'' currently has a lot of acclaim, and it's one of the darkest works in the franchise so far.

*** The fact that [[spoiler:the Puru clone in question is now an adult and thus have a somewhat different voice]] may have something to do with it.

* {{Narm}}: Okay... seriously, Full Frontal?
** The name, though extremely narmy, likely has some kind of ironic and fairly witty symbolism. Full Frontal implies being "bare naked" or "fully exposed" ([[MaleFrontalNudity *COUGH*]] ...Which really doesn't help the Narm factor) while in reality the character wears a mask and is very mysterious.
** Also, Full Frontal, "full frontal assault,"[[note]][[FullFrontalAssault ...Not that dammit]][[/note]] as in a full-on, all-out assault, so it also doubles as a shout out to the missing-in-action Char Aznable's combat style.
** On the other hand, he ''is'' aping a guy who spent a couple years going by the name Quattro [[note]]Vagina[[/note]] Bajeena.
** Let's face it, ''Gundam'' has a history of...[[AerithAndBob eccentric naming conventions]]. You could really mistake some of them for names of ''StarWars'' characters.
** A rare few moments in the surprisingly competent English dub sounded somewhat phoned in, particularly Marida Cruz's VA's reading of the line "So heavy." being utterly narm-tastic. (Although that might have to do with the line being an awkward one in-and-of itself, being a direct translation of the Japanese audio.)

Frontal? While the symbolism for the name is obvious, that doesn't make it any less ridiculous and fairly witty symbolism. difficult to take seriously.

Full Frontal implies being "bare naked" or "fully exposed" ([[MaleFrontalNudity *COUGH*]] ...Which really doesn't help is the Narm factor) while in reality second coming of Char. We get it. The more it gets repeated, and the character wears a mask more it gets just hammered into the skulls of viewers, the less it becomes ominous and is very mysterious.
** Also, Full Frontal, "full frontal assault,"[[note]][[FullFrontalAssault ...Not

Marida Cruz's VA's reading of the line "So heavy." being heavy" in the first episode was utterly narm-tastic. (Although that might have to do with the line being an awkward one in-and-of itself, being a direct translation of the Japanese audio.)

** It has to be pointed out that the seventh episode of an OVA called ''Gundam Unicorn'' is titled "Over the Rainbow." The only way they could fit more LGBT symbols into an episode is if the final superweapon was a rainbow-colored pyramid.

** Everything surrounding the yet-to-be-revealed contents of Laplace's Box: [[spoiler:The original Federation charter that granted more rights to spacenoids as well as confirming the idea of newtypes. However it was stopped by a terrorist attack instigated by more extreme Federation elements who re-wrote the charter to give the Federation more control over the colonies. Some people see this as adding even more to the general GrayAndGrayMorality of the Universal Century while others see it as a case of trying to canonize the general [[MisaimedFandom Zeon Is Right]] mentality thereby dismissing it (and the series in general) as "fanwank"]].

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The unnamed Stark Jegan pilot who nearly owns the Kshatriya in the first 6 minutes of the first episode.
** Not only did he manage to hold his own against the Kshatriya, but the Stark Jegan's HGUC manual implies that he was one of the guys that attempted to help Amuro push back Axis three years prior. The guy was a true hero.
** The unnamed Byarlant Custom pilot in Episode 4.
*** He ''is'' named [[AllThereInTheManual it's Robin Diez]].
*** The Byarlant Custom is actually a tactically inferior suit, with only two guns (which double as beam sabers) and its claws. Its sheer speed and maneuverability (and gigantic claws) make it one of the best combatants in the anime.

* HellIsThatNoise: More unsettling than jarring, but '[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmNBaG36T0A&feature=related Marida]]' is ''seriously'' uncomfortable listening.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VA4DQani_w0 MARTHA]]" is no slouch in this department.

* TooSoon: Episode 11 of ''RE: 0096'' goes into the chapter with the massive mobile armor's massacre of a populated city, as well as Zinnerman's story of a Zeon colony being shot down in cold blood by angry Feddies. This comes ''days'' before the Orlando club shooting.

** The [[OnlySixFaces uncanny]] [[{{Expy}} resemblance]] that Zinnerman has to Captain from ''Giant Gorg'' didn't go unnoticed by the fans of that series. Then, both of their respective series were confirmed to appear in ''SuperRobotWarsBX''.

** The recut TV version of the [=OVAs=], ''Unicorn RE 0096'', has also been met with this reaction - some fans are fine with it, pointing out that it means that new scenes from the novel will be animated, some existing scenes will be reanimated, and it's the first UC Gundam TV series in a long time[[note]]Excluding ''Anime/GundamReconguistaInG'', which while connected to the UC timeline, takes place in the Reguild Century[[/note]]; other fans, however, are upset that the series is being recut for TV broadcast, pointing out that Sunrise could just as easily adapt another novel or a manga, such as ''Gundam Sentinel'' or ''Manga/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam'' if they wanted to make a new UC Gundam series.
