Awesome / Robotech

  • The novelizations turn the Destroids dying horribly in Khyron's assault on the earthbound SDF-1 into an awe-inspiring heroic last stand as the Destroid pilots try to buy time for the Veritechs and MACs/Monsters to arrive; they also include a scene of the Destroids marching out to back up the SDF-1's turrets in the final battle against the Zentradi fleet that was not in the anime, describing it loving detail and crediting them with tripling the SDF-1's short-range firepower for the last battle.
  • In one of the Robotech: The Sentinels novels, Max and his daughter Dana fight. The fight is interrupted before it concludes, but it's implied that the latter might have actually managed to beat the former if they'd fought to the finish.
