** 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.

* TheScrappy: Head writer Sumizawa revealed in an interview that [[TheWoobie Quatre]], of all people, was rather unpopular during the show's run, with Japanese girls nicknaming him "The Space Heart Jerk".

** Wufei wasn't much liked by the American fanbase, largely for his flip flopping sides on a dime and abrasive personality. Of the five, he's usually viewed as the least interesting.

** Even the background music is sweeping and epic, often being favorably compared to that of StarWars.

** [[Franchise/StarWars Supreme Leader Snoke]] seems to have [[https://i.redd.it/mwgrfhbpu9jz.jpg lifted the blueprints]] for the ''[[Film/TheLastJedi Supremacy]]'' from the ''Peacemillion''.

* LauncherOfAThousandShips: The fans seemed to have a thing for Hilde. In fanfiction, she was often portrayed as being [[HeadTiltinglyKinky so kinky and desireable]], that all the Gundam pilots (including Zechs) [[LustObject wanted to bang her.]] The now defunct ''"[=DxH=] Addiction"'' was an entire archive dedicated to such stories, with half its lemon section being reserved for [[CoitusEnsues her sexual escapades with Duo]] and the other was for stories about her either [[AllWomenAreLustful seducing the other pilots]], or being seduced ''[[ReallyGetsAround by them]]''.

* 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.
