* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Vindel Mauser truly a downright evil warmonger who got the "ButThouMust" position in the EvilerThanThou against his universe's TheFederation, or really a misunderstood hero trying to save his world from the corrupt government, but got beaten on the way?
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Axel Almer's "[[FanNickname Ahoseru]]" persona. Just imagine Axel as a CasanovaWannabe extraordinaire, failing to hit any ladies and trying to blend in...too awkwardly, in fact.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Axel and Lamia Loveless' {{Leitmotif}}s "Dark Knight" and "Ash to Ash", respectively
** "Chaos", Vindel's {{Leitmotif}}: here's the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vds5cJ_RnAU version]] and the ''A Portable'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_EOeF5GFXI version]], for a small sampling.
* MemeticBadass: The [[MobileSuitGundam High Mobility Zaku]], due to its raw potential in the first playthrough, becomes one of the best {{Real Robot}}s in the game with a few minor tune-ups. In the early Space Route, you can watch it take down [[MobileSuitGundam Char Aznable in his cutting edge Zeong]].
* NarmCharm: In ''A Portable'', the [[MobileFighterGGundam Sekiha Kyuukyoku Tenkyoken]] CombinationAttack. [[MobileFighterGGundam Master Asia and Domon Kasshu]] use the normal technique and their victim is sandwiched between two giant fists. It gets smashed completely and the two fists collide, resulting in what can only be described as "[[HandshakeSubstitute bro-fisting, Undefeated of the East-style]]".
* ThatOneBoss: [[spoiler:Master Asia]] in ''Advance''; in fact, he makes you question the validity of the idea of a kind and loving God.
** [[JustJokingJustification Just to punish you]] for loving ''MartianSuccessorNadesico'', choosing the route that features its plot in ''A Portable'' pits you against [[{{Daitarn3}} Don Zauser]], easily one of the hardest bosses in any modern [=SRW=]. WATCH as he effortlessly evades your attacks, then SCREAM in frustration as the ones that do hit bounce off his ridiculously high armor rating, and finally, [[RuleOfThree DASH your head]] [[DrivenToSuicide against a wall]] as all of your progress is undone by his high HitPoints GradualRegeneration.
