- Took a Level in Badass: Captain Zaku. Originally a bumbling idiot Ensign Newbie looked down upon by his subordinates, he gets reassigned to Jaburo and comes back covered in scars, wielding three bazookas tied together into a single weapon and a heat hawk bigger than himself, going on to solo the Gundam and force it to retreat. On the other hand, he's still as bumbling as before.
- Uncatty Resemblance: Vol. 2 introduces "Comet Chick", bearing a certain disposition. Bonus points for being red.
