* 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, [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny 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 [[TheAce the former]]'' if they'd fought to the finish.
