''Dancouga Nova'' is a SuperRobot show that started airing on February 15, 2007. Creator/MasamiObari designed and directed the series. This is the [[InNameOnly supposed sequel]] to ''Super Beast Machine God {{Dancouga}}'', though it is more a SpiritualSuccessor to {{Gravion}}.

The story takes place in 2014, when wars spring up all over the world and Japan has been devastated by a massive earthquake. Where ever the fighting turns to favor one of the sides, a mysterious force appears to even the odds, but never finishes off the side that once was winning. It leaves once the balance of power is restored. This is ''Dancouga Nova''.

* DarkSkinnedBlond: Seimi
* DesignerBabies: [[spoiler:Aoi]]
* {{Determinator}}: Runs in all four of Dancouga Nova's pilots.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: [[spoiler:Original Dancouga and Moon Will]]. Bonus points in that [[spoiler:Aoi actually punches the latter]].
* {{Eagleland}}: The [[TheNeidermeyer Neidermeyer]] captain of Episode 4 is an obvious example of type 2.
* EverybodyLives: Though [[spoiler:Aoi had a very close brush with death]].
** [[spoiler: Well mostly everybody. We never do find out what happened to Fog Sweeper and Earth Will and we did get a brief shot of Dragon's Hive getting shot down.]]
* {{Expy}} : Seimi, imagine [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Excellen Browning]] as a mechanic and the result isn't far from her.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The pilots: model & racer Aoi, young cop Kurara, BadAssBookworm salaryman Johnny, and HotBlooded homeless bum Sakuya.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Fog Sweeper]] and [[spoiler: Earth Will]] in Dragon's Hive in the final episode. Maybe. Unlike everyone else, these two don't show up again so it's highly suggested that they had been KilledOffForReal.

* HomelessHero: Sakuya
* HotBlooded: Pretty much everyone who pilots Dancouga.
* IdolSinger: Johnny has a crush on one - and gets to meet her in person. It's LoveAtFirstSight.
* ImprobableAge: Kurara. See SuperCop below for more info.

* {{Salaryman}}: Johnny starts of as one [[spoiler: who later quits his job]] while Sakuya used to be one, or so it seems.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS People call the Dancougas Dancougars even though Shinobu makes it clear in 80s Dancouga that the name is Dancouga with the code input D A N C O U G A, Dancouga Nova doesn't even have a English version and yet people call it a Dancougar too.
* ShoutOut : Lulli Luli? [[CatchPhrase Baka bakka?]] Sounds like [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Ruri Hoshino]].
** D for Dangerous is a notable line from ''Anime/TekkamanBlade''.
* ShutUpHannibal: Aoi won't listen to bullshit about how HumansAreBastards.
** Earlier still, Kurara rejects the {{Eagleland}} representative's belief that MightMakesRight.
* SpiritualSuccessor: To {{Gravion}}
* SuperCop: Kurara. 15 years old, cleaned up the corrupt narcotics division of the police department single-handedly. Her ImprobableAimingSkills probably helped a lot.
%% * SuperMode
* VideoGame/SuperRobotWars: Made its debut in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsL'' and met VoltesV and CombattlerV like its predecessor did.
** Speaking of predecessors, it has also appeared in ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2'' alongside the original ''Dancouga'' and ''Gravion.''
** It appears once again in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsUX''.
* TakeThat: America had invaded the Middle East using a war on terrorism as a cover and caused terrorism to spread throughout the world.

* TrueCompanions: Aoi, Sakuya, Kurara and Johnny start out as complete strangers and end up like this.
* TwelveEpisodeAnime
%% * TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture
