* AngstWhatAngst: One of Tobia's defining characteristics. While it's not like he doesn't angst at all (this ''is'' a Franchise/{{Gundam}} story after all), he can sleep it off and be completely fine the next day. Played with when he has to ''act'' shell-shocked to (briefly) infiltrate the Jupiter Empire.
* ArcFatigue: Volume 5 starts with [[spoiler:Mother Vanguard sunk and Kincade supposedly killed]], but then it hits the brakes for a while and focuses on Tobia, Berah, and Bernadette on Earth undergoing a collective HeroicBSOD over said events, sitting out the war as the Jovians walk all over the Federation. It isn't until [[spoiler:Kincade comes back]] at the start of Volume 6 that things pick up again.
* CargoShip: Grey Stoke has a brotherly bond with the Gump. Which makes sense, since he's been using it ever since [[spoiler:it was called the ZZ Gundam]].
* ContestedSequel: ''Skull Heart'', ''Steel Seven'' and ''Ghost''.
* {{Fanon}}: Fans like to believe that Tomino's original proposal for ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamF91 Gundam F91]]'' included ''Crossbone''; it's uncertain, but seems pretty unlikely.
* RetroactiveRecognition: The Elgolela (the transforming mobile armor piloted by [[spoiler:Bernadette]]) was a fan-submitted design for a contest; the designer was Kanetake Ebikawa, who would go on to work on such series as ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]''.
* MemeticBadass: Tobia. Seriously - the kid is ''tough''.

** Want further evidence? ''Ghost'' reveals that [[spoiler:even blinded, he's a master mobile suit pilot.]]
* ToughActToFollow: In a rather specific case, Yuuichi Hasegawa's character designs are generally considered a major step down from Yasuhiko Yoshikazu's work for ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamF91 F91]]''.
