* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: For being the GatewaySeries for the Gundam franchise in the United States, and being considered less popular then the likes of ''Seed'' and the UC in Japan... by a considerable margin. It isn't ''Wing'' is disliked, but rather that the Universal Century and Cosmic Era timelines have much stronger and more fanatical fanbases. A [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2014-01-29/ntt-docomo-survey-ranks-best-gundam-series 2014 poll]], however, still placed ''Wing'' as Japan's 5th favorite ''Gundam'' series.

* AwesomeMusic[=/=]EarWorm: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdHTGUSk5Ms White Reflection]]'' from the OST for ''"Endless Waltz"'' has a pulse pounding track and vocals. If that doesn't get your blood pumping, it's doubtful anything else will. Also, good luck trying to get it out of your head.

* PoorMansSubstitute: Heero's dubbing voice actor, Mark Hildreth, apparantly did not share the same love for the role the other gundam pilot's voice actors did for their characters. Heero is the only one of the five to constantly be recast in productions following the end of the TV series. Initially, Hildreth was replaced by Louis Chirillo whenever Heero returned with voice acting. Chirillo eventually retired from voice acting, after which Heero's role was given to Brian Drummond, ironically the longtime voice of his rival Zechs Merquise. With each new voice actor change, Heero's voice changes just enough to be noticeable.

* CompleteMonster: While perhaps the [[LighterAndSofter lightest work of the series]], that can't be said about the Romefeller Foundation's [[MadScientist Chief Engineer]], [[AxCrazy Ken]] [[WarForFunAndProfit Tsubarov]]. A loud, abrasive {{jerkass}}, with NoIndoorVoice and a HairTriggerTemper, Tsubarov eventually reveals himself as a BloodKnight by proxy who enjoys watching his [[KillerRobot Mobile Dolls]] slaughter enemy soldiers, supporting [[DiscOneFinalBoss Duke Dermail]] [[PsychoSupporter in the hopes that the latter will trigger an enormous war]] for his Dolls to show off their skills. When [[TheBaroness Lady Une]], a major supporter of his project, reveals that she likes the automated Mobile Dolls because they will cut down on human casualties, Tsubarov turns on her, as he wants his Dolls to have the chance to kill people, and plenty of them. When the White Fang rebellion reaches the colonies, Tsubarov betrays Une, seizes control of the colonies, attempts to murder the captive Gundam pilots by cutting off their oxygen, and guns Une down when she tries to interfere. He proceeds to improve his Dolls, and begins construction of the KillSat[=/=][[TheBattlestar Battlestar]] ''Libra'' for his boss. When the rebels come for him, Tsubarov finally snaps, undergoes a huge VillainousBreakdown, and turns his Dolls loose on the civilian population, ranting like a madman the entire time about how, through them, he will achieve invincibility.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Gundam Wing is a pretty serious show to begin with and it gets even darker as the series progresses, with very little comedy or lightheartedness. Quatre and Duo of the main cast manage to balance things out a little since they're not as dark as the rest of their comrades but even they can only do so much in a war story filled with death and destruction.

Admittedly, the show can be quite difficult to sit through if you're expecting an anime where there are plenty of humorous or lighthearted moments to balance out the more serious elements.

** The soundtrack contains quite a few, and even those who don't like the rest of the series will concede that it has an awesome soundtrack. It helps that the whole thing, minus openings and endings, was done by Kou Otani, the award-winning composer for ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus''.
** [[Creator/MinamiTakayama Two-Mix]] performs the opening and ending themes. That can't be anything but awesome.

** Many a fanfic has had Relena [[FaceHeelTurn go evil]], usually to facilitate [[DieForOurShip killing her off]] and [[HoYay setting Heero with Duo]]. [[spoiler:In ''Frozen Teardrop'', she actually '''is''' brainwashed into evil - and it's implied that she caused [[strike:her own brother's]] her brother's stand-in's death thanks to it.]]

* RealWomenNeverWearDresses: If people don't bash Relena for "taking Heero away from Duo", she's bashed for being unapologetically girly or having a pink limo (which her parents gave her, so it's not like she can choose the color).

** Zechs riding the Tallgeese into battle while saying "But I can't falter with the Sanc Kingdom right in front of my eyeeees!" in his best JackNicholson voice. Ditto for infamous yell of ''fooooolllls'' while destroying a cancer mobile suit.

** The ''order'' in which the names are listed is important too. Whoever is listed first is the initiator or "aggressor" of the relationship, while the listing of [=XxYxX=] (as in [=1xRx1=]) means both partners are equally interested. Certain listings indicate shifts in personalities; for example, 2x1 means a moody Duo with a happy Heero. [[MST3KMantra Don't think about it too hard]] [[AustinPowers or you'll go cross-eyed]].

** ''Frozen Teardrop'' is this if not outright FanonDiscontinuity.

** ''Frozen Teardrop'' is this if not outright FanonDiscontinuity. Some fans love it for being [[MindScrew hilarious nonsense]], and don't really see it as being all that different from [[NarmCharm what the original show was.]] Other fans think it goes too far into bizarro territory.
