** Speaking of the Moon Moon, a race of people who live on the moon and prefer peace when possible? [[Anime/TurnAGundam Sounds familiar.]] Not to mention Judau crossdressing at one point.

Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectFailure: When [[spoiler: Rasara Moon]] dies, she's ''supposed'' to be crushed by falling debris beforehand, but due to an animation error, the debris lands a few feet away from her, making it look like she just fell on Mondo and died for no reason.

* BizarroEpisode: "Prelude ZZ" has no particular plot and consists of a long stream-of-consciousness recap and foreshadowing mixed in with occasional acid trips and mobile suit quizzes.

* TheScrappy: Emary Ounce gets a fair bit of hate because her character does nothing except obsessively pursue Bright despite knowing that he's HappilyMarried to Mirai (when her subordinate Milly points this out, Emary simply glares daggers at her). This obsessive crush even results in her eventual death, but most fans felt much sorrier for the Anaheim employees who had to put up with her crap and almost got killed alongside her.

* VindicatedByHistory: Gundam ZZ has started to get some love, namely in ''Anime/GundamBuildFightersTry'', [[spoiler:a Puru clone]] in Unicorn, an entire Gundam Evolve short about what Judau's up to sometime after ZZ, and Judau shows up as a CoolOldGuy in various spinoff mangas.

** Also, what happens when [[spoiler: Haman shoots Leina]]. Judau, normally a HotBlooded kid, completely '''snaps''' in the mom and grandmom of all [[TranquilFury tranquil furies]], with anger and power strong enough to ''cause Haman to FreakOut and literally cry in fear'' and be felt by Newtypes who were ''far'' away from the place. (The visualization was a demonic phantom emerging out of him. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam The last time this happened]], it was [[AFatherToHisMen Dozle Zabi]] [[YouShallNotPass doing it]].) '''That is how massively pissed off he was''', and it's scary to see. This scene is probably why some consider Judeau to be the Newtype with the strongest raw power.

* CompleteMonster: While LighterAndSofter than earlier works, ''ZZ'' still had LighterAndSofter than earlier works, especially ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta]]'', still has this duo:

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: There's an online quiz out there that lets you construct your wolfkin name by matching your first and last name to two wolf-related words. Due to the word Moon appearing in both lists, it's possible to be named ''Moon Moon'', which has even led to MemeticMutation.

* LoveItOrHateIt: Fandom is very split on ZZ. Typically those who liked Zeta (which makes up the majority of the fanbase) hate ZZ, while those who liked ZZ hated Zeta.

* CompleteMonster: While LighterAndSofter than earlier works, ''ZZ'' still had Axis-Zeon AcePilot [[ColonelKilgore Rakan Dahkaran]], an {{expy}} of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta's]]'' Yazan Gable, who was, like his inspiration, a [[TheBrute brutal]], [[ImplacableMan nigh-unkillable]] BloodKnight with a [[IFightForTheStrongestSide tenuous grasp of personal loyalty]]. Cold-blooded and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done, Rakan has no qualms about harming civilians. This is best demonstrated in Episode 35, where he [[TheStoic impassively]] [[KickTheDog guns down hospital ships and evacuation craft]] fleeing the Dublin ColonyDrop, and destroys roads and bridges in order to make sure that nobody escapes the blast radius. He kills longtime ''Gundam'' veteran Hayato Kobayashi when the latter tries to stop him, and following his defection from Haman's forces willingly kills many of his old comrades, including [[AntiVillain Mashmyre Cello]] and Royal Guardsman Lance, before being stopped by Judau. Axis's go-to guy for the dirtiest of jobs, Rakan proves that in the end, his only loyalty is to himself.

** While the anime version of [[TeensAreMonsters Glemmy Toto]] had enough redeeming traits to keep him off this list, the same cannot be said for [[AdaptationalVillainy his manga counterpart]], a vicious SmugSnake and [[TheStarscream Starscream]] who is bad news from his first appearance to his last. Coldly manipulating Puru, an unstable ChildSoldier, into doing his killing for him, Glemmy keeps a small army of brainwashed clones of her as backup for when she inevitably dies on him. He burns down a village to draw out [[TheProtagonist Judau Ashta]], has a defecting Puru [[WouldHurtAChild killed]] by her EvilTwin Puru-2, and eventually [[TheStarscream betrays]] [[BigBad Haman Khan]], triggering a devastating EnemyCivilWar in the process, as he aims to make himself the dictatorial ruler of both Earth and the colonies, unleashing his entire clone army in the process. Idolising the franchise’s original CM, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Gihren Zabi]], [[YouClonedHitler whose DNA]] may [[ApocalypseHitler run in his veins]], Glemmy promises to be every bit as brutal a tyrant as he was, and betrays no concern at all for the dozens of little girls who are dying to make his dream a reality.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Beecher and Mondo's ChronicBackstabbingDisorder in the early portion of the series rubbed some fans the wrong way, especially because it was often PlayedForLaughs. This is a side effect of the first half of the show being LighterAndSofter than the predecessors. As explained below, viewers tolerance for the antics of the duo was really determined by how much they liked the early tone of the series.
